第三部分 阅读理解（共两节，满分40分） 第一节（共15小题：每小题2分，满分30分） 阅读下列短文，从每题所给的四个选项（A、B、C、D）中，选出最佳选项，并在答题 卡上将该项涂黑。 A I’m not so sure I like my friends any more. I used to like them-to be honest. We’d have lunch, talk on the phone or exchange emails, and they all seemed normal enough. But then came FaceBook, and I was introduced to a sad fact: many of my friends have dark sides that they had kept from me. Today my friends show off the more unpleasant aspects of their personalities via Face Book. No longer hidden, they’re thrown in my face like TV commercials -unavoidable and endless advertisements for the worst of their personalities. Take Fred. If you were to have lunch with him, you’d find him warm, and self-effacing（谦逊 的）.Read his FaceBook and you’ll realize he’s an unbearable, food-obsessed boring man. He’d pause to have a cup of coffee on his way to save a drowning man-and then write about it. Take Andy. You won’t find a smarter CEO anywhere, but now he’s a CEO without a company to run. So he plays Mafia Wars on FaceBook. He’s doing well-level 731. Thanks to FaceBook, I know he’s playing about 18 hours a day. Andy, you’ve run four companies-and this is how you spend your downtime? What happned to golf?What happened to getting another job? Take Liz. She is positive that the flu vaccine will kill us all and that we should avoid it. And then comes Chris who likes to post at least 20 times a day on every website he can find, so I get to read his thoughts twice, once on FaceBook and once on Twitter. In real life, I don’t see these sides of people. Face to face, my friends show me their best. They’re nice, smart people. But face to FaceBook, my friends are like a blind date which goes horribly wrong. I’m left with a dilemma. Who is my real friend?Is it the Liz I have lunch with or the anti-vaccine madman on FaceBook? Is it the Fred I can grab a sandwich with or the Fred who weeps if he’s at a party and the wine isn’t up to his standard? 56. Who is opposed to the flu vaccine in the text? A. Fred B. Andy C. Liz D. Chris 57. What’s Andy probably busy in doing now? A. He’s running his company B. He’s playing golf all day C. He’s looking for another job D. He’s playing computer games 58. According to the text, FaceBook tends to _______. A. present another side of people B. offer some foods for free C. show endless advertisements D. get you to more parties 59. The text is developed mainly by _____.
B. following the time order D. raising questions B There are two dangers to be guarded against in old age. One of these is undue absorption in the past. It does not do to live in memories, in regrets for the good old days, or in sadness about friends who are dead. One’s thoughts must be directed to the future and to things about which there is something to be done. It is unwise to be too attached to the youth in the hope of sucking vigor from its vitality. When your children are grown up they want to live their own lives, and if you continue to be as interested in them as you were when they were young, you are likely to become a burden to them, unless they are cold to you. I think that a successful old age is easiest for those who have strong impersonal interests involving appropriate activities. It is in this sphere that long experience is really fruitful, and it is in this sphere that the wisdom born of experience can be exercised without being oppressive. It is no use telling grown-up children not to make mistakes, both because they will not believe you, and because mistakes are an essential part of education. But if you are one of those who are incapable of impersonal interests, you may find that your life will be empty unless you concern yourself with you children and grandchildren. In that case you must realize that while you can still render them material services, such as making them an allowance or knitting them jumpers, you must not expect that they will enjoy your company. Some old people are afraid of death. But in fact the best way is to make your interests gradually wider and ore impersonal. An individual human existence should be like a river-small at fist, rushing passionately past rocks and over waterfalls. Gradually the river grows wider and the banks move back and in the end they become mixed in the sea without any visible break. The old man who can see life in this way will not suffer from the fear of growing old and death. 60. The author suggests that old people should_______. A. develop impersonal interests with proper activities. B. tell their children not to make mistakes C. concern themselves with their children D. not give their children an allowance 61. The underlined word “render” in Paragraph 3 is close to the meaning of “_____”. A. return B. reward C. offer D. demand 62. The author compares an individual human existence to a river because _____. A. Life is like a river, first small, and then it becomes wide B. life is like a river finally flowing into the sea C. old age and death are both natural just like a river D. old people will be mixed in the crowd like a river mixed in the sea 63. What’s the best title of this passage? A. Setting Sun Is Beautiful B. Growing Old Successfully C. Why Fear Getting Old D. Caring for Olds More C Amazing Rafting Adventures White water rafting is one of the classic, wild, activities in the outdoors. It is also an
A. giving examples C. listing figures
opportunity for an unbelievable family adventure. Around the country, there are several rivers— and rafting outfitters—that are perfectly suited to the entire family. Here are three of the best: New River Gorge, West Virginia Rafting in West Virginia is renowned for its established infrastructure, reliability, and easy access. These things make it an obvious choice for a family vacation. Famous areas, including the New River Gorge, offer everything from lazy floats to intense Class IV runs.

Popular trips include the rough rapids of the Snake River and gentle floats in nearby Yellowstone National Park. READ MORE: What You Need to Know Before Visiting Yellowstone National Park Grand Canyon, Arizona For really bold families, a multi-day trip down the Colorado River in the Grand Canyon is the penultimate adventure. Guided trips typically pack in boats-worth of supplies so the overnight adventures are far from “roughing it.” Instead, evenings are catered in a rugged luxury style, allowing everyone to rest up for the next day’s activities. Whether looking for a casual float or a challenging adventure, white water rafting is a great option for any active family vacation. 64. What is the common feature of the three rafting adventures? A. All three rafting rivers are suitable for the whole family. B. All three rafting rivers are boring to access and reliable C. All three rafting rivers are suitable for active families D. All three rafting rivers offer overnight adventures 65. Which of the following about Grand Canyon, Arizona is NOT true? A. A multi-day trip down the Colorado River is really challenging. B. Really brave families will like to have a multi-day trip down the river C. Everyone can rest for the next day’s activities. D. People can only enjoy the rough rapids down the river 66. What is the author’s attitude to white water rafting? A. Passive B. Encouraging C. Discouraging D. Negative D An Ofsted (英国教育标准办公室）study reports that teachers are discouraging students who want to leave school and work as apprentices (学徒） beauty salons (美容中心） hair dressers. in or Inspectors questioned 105 young people for a report on apprenticeships published on Wednesday. They found several examples of young people who felt they had been laughed at by their teachers for wanting to progress to work-based learning, particularly in care or hairdressing, rather than stay on at school. Right or wrong, is it any surprise that this is happening? From 2014，the government will measure schools according to the rate of their pupils who go to university. Brian Lightman , general secretary of the Association of School and College Leaders, says the government has already put teachers under “very great pressure to focus on academic subjects”.
On the other hand, the Education Act 2011，which came into force in November, places schools under a duty to give fair career advice to pupils. This advice must include information on all post-16 education and training choices, including apprenticeships. This doesn’t appear to be happening in several schools, according to Ofsted9S report. Many of the young people the inspectors talked to said the advice they had received on apprenticeships was “unsatisfactory”. Schools were also blamed for lack of work experience courses, which are particularly important for teenagers considering an apprenticeship. They help students decide whether they enjoy a line of work and enable employers to see whether those on work experience have the potential to be hired as apprentices in future years. But there is a good reason why they can’t do this: they’d be unable to adapt to GCSE (英 国 齊通中等教育证书）exams if they did. Sometimes, it seems, schools just can’t win. 67. Why do teachers oppose the students’ leaving school and working as apprentices? A. The government urges teachers to concentrate on academic subjects. B. The students are only wasting time working as apprentices. C. Employers are under great pressure of taking GCSE exams. D. Employers don’t give students chances to work as apprentices 68. Pressure for schools to provide pupils with career advice comes from ______. A. Association of School and College Leaders B. Education Act 2011 C. GCSE exams D. OFSTED 69. The underlined word “They” in Paragraph 5 refers to _____. A. schools B. employers C. work experience courses D. teenagers considering an apprenticeship 70. What does the author think of teachers’ discouraging students working as apprentices? A. Surprising B. Understandable C. Wrong D. Right 第二节（共5小题：每小题2分，满分10分） 根据短文内容，从短文后的选项中选出能填入空白处的最佳选项，选项中有两项为多 余选项. Trust has been considered as the basis of any relationship, including friendship. No relationship can last long with a lack of trust. Not many of your friends will have real faith in you as you would like to believe. 71 . Sometimes, it takes years, even a complete lifetime, to trust someone. However, how do we know if our friends have faith in us? 72 . With whom will you share things that you don’t want everyone to know? It would be with a close friend, whom you trust as much as you trust yourself. While a few of your friends may be fiercely protective of their privacy and may not tell their secrets to anyone, those who do, surely find you trustworthy and reliable. Whom do you look up to for advice when you need it the most? It has to be either your parents or your friends. 73 . This is a shining example of trust. You only seek advice from people you hold in high regard and find dependable. The friends who trust you will never forget to include you in the important decisions of their life. Arguments and heated discussions are a part of every relationship, and this is also true for friendship. 74 . While some people find it difficult to forgive and forget, your friends will never have problems moving on. It is because they trust you and believe that you will never cause any pain to them on purpose.
There are times in life when you find yourself a lonely soldier. 75 . Your friends will neve let you down and will strongly stand for you when you need encouragement. You can determine that they trust you and believe in your beliefs, if they side with you when you need them the most. A. People can be extraordinarily jealous sometimes B. You know they will neve pass on a wrong suggestion C. In fact, winning trust is, by far, the most challenging aspect of relationships D. Two people cannot have identical reactions to a situation and different opinions do exist. E. No matter how close you are to your friends, you cannot take that comfort level for granted. F. If your friends share their secrets, there’s a good possibility that they have much faith in you. G. However, people who are fortunate to have been blessed with true friends are never alone in any battle.

In my opinion, without teachers, no society could make progresses. There is no doubt whether teachers play an important role in children growth. Not only do teachers pass on knowledge for children, but they also teach children how to behave themselves. Comparing with other jobs, teaching is hard and the pay is lower. And to me, what great fun it is to be with children! They make me to feel young forever. Because I’ll study harder and try my best to realize my dream. 第二节 书面表达（满分25分） 最近，学校以高考临近学习紧张为名，拟取消高三体育课，引发了同学们的不满。假如 你是高三（1）班班长李华，代表全班同学给校长写一封信，反对取消体育课。具体要求如 下： 1. 主要内容：理由、要求和建议 2. 词数要求：100 左右 3. 开头已给出，不计入总词汇。 Dear principal, I am Li Hua, monitor of Class 1, Senior 3... ___________________________________________________________________________ _______________________________________________________________________________ _______________________________________________________________________________ Yours Li Hua

Facing the coming college entrance examination, we Grade 3 students all feel stressful. One of the effective means of reducing our pressure is taking exercise including having PE classes. That is why my classmates felt frustrated and helpless when hearing your decision. We believe taking exercise can keep us more healthy, more energetic to improve our grade. It can also strengthen our friendship and we can do less for more when learning. As the saying goes: All work and no play makes Jack dull boy. Considering all the above, we sincerely hope that you do not cancel our PE classes therefore. By the way, having one more PE class each week is welcome. Thank you! Yours Li Hua
