四、阅读理解（共两节，有 18 小题，满分 32 分） 第一节：阅读下面短文并作每篇后面的题目。从 A、B、C、D 四个选项 中，选出最 佳选项。本节有 14 小题，每小题 2 分，共 28 分。 A Many years ago, my dad was diagnosed ( 诊断 ) with a serious heart condition. He was unable to work a steady job. He would be fine for a while, but would then fall suddenly ill and have to be admitted to the hospital. He wanted to do something to keep himself busy, so he decided to volunteer at the local children’s hospital. My dad loved kids. It was the perfect job for him. He ended up working with the seriously ill children. He would talk, play, and do arts with them. One of his kids was a girl with a rare disease that paralyzed (瘫痪) her from the neck down. She couldn’t do anything, and she was very depressed. My dad decided to try to help her. He started visiting her in her room, bringing paints, brushes and paper. He stood the paper up, put the paintbrush in his mouth and began to paint. He didn’t use his hands at all. All the while he would tell her, “See, you can do anything you set your mind to.” At the end of the day, she began to paint using her mouth, and she and my dad became friends. Soon after, the little girl was sent home because the doctors felt there was nothing else they could do for her. My dad also lef t the children’s hospital for a little while because he became ill. Some time later after my dad had recovered and returned to work, in came the little girl who had been paralyzed, but this time she was walking. She ran straight
over to my dad and hugged him really tight. She gave him a picture she had done using her hands. At the bottom it read: “Thank you for helping me walk.” My dad would cry every time he told us this story and so would we. He would say sometimes love is more powerful than doctors, and my dad – who died just a few months after the little girl gave him the picture – loved every single child in that hospital. 51. The author’s father worked at the local hospital to ___________. A. ease his heart condition B. keep himself busy and happy C. earn money to pay for treatment D. realize his childhood dream 52. How did the author’s father help the paralyzed little girl? A. He helped her practice walking. B. He painted special pictures for her. C. He showed her she could still do things. D. He visited her and made a toy for her. 53. What is the text mainly about? A. It’s better to give than to receive. B. Volunteering is a worthwhile thing to do. C. Love can sometimes bring great results. D. A sick person should not focus on his disease. B Trees are useful to man in three important ways: they give him wood and other useful things, they give him cool places, and they help to stop drought (干 旱) and flood. Unluckily, in many parts of the world, man has not found that the third of these points is the most important. Man wants to make money from trees, so he has cut them down in large numbers, only to find that without them he has lost the best friends he had. And also, he is usually too careless to plant and look after new trees. So the forests slowly disappear.
This does not only mean that man will have fewer trees. The results are even worse: for where there are trees, their roots（根）break up soil-make the rain in-and also bind (固定) the soil, thus stopping it from being washed away easily; but where there are no trees, the rain falls on hard ground and flows away, causing floods and carrying away the rich top-so il. When all the top-soil is gone, nothing is left but useless desert. 54.The most important points of trees to man is that ________. A. they help him to make money B. they give him cool C. they help him to stop drought and floods D. they give him wood and other things 55. In many places forests slowly disappear because ________ . A. many trees have been cut down by man B. new trees are not well looked after C. man has not paid enough attention to planting trees D. all the above 56. Land becomes desert（荒地）after all trees are cut down because ________ . A. roots of trees break up the soil B. there are too many rainfalls C. strong winds bring a lot of sand D. there are no longer trees to keep the rain and protect the top-soil 57. Which title best fits the passage? A. Trees and Man B. The Function of Tree Wood C. How do People do with Trees? D. The Usage of Tree Roots C I knew the food was going to be spicy (辣的) as soon as I stepped into the restaurant. I was in Chengdu with two of my Chinese friends. At a long table near the door, some sweaty young men were peeling off (脱掉) their shirts while they picked vegetables out of hot-pot broth (火锅汤).
I stayed away from whatever they were eating that day. But that doesn’t mean I always refuse to eat spicy food. I like it – just in small doses (量). When I eat spicy food, I feel like my whole body is on fire. My tongue burns. My body sweats. Some foreigners I know love the feeling. To them, eating spicy food is a challenge – like running a race or climbing a mountain. Eating the food – and living to tell about it – is a thing to be celebrated. Me? I would rather run a race or climb a mountain. When I eat, I don’t want to be uncomfortable. I don’t want to sweat. And I certainly don’t want to peel my shirt off. (I don’t think you would want me to either, as you would see my ugly, white belly (肚子). Some of my foreign friends have made fun of me for my cowardice (胆 小 ). They have called me names (jokingly) for not trying China’s spiciest fare (饭菜) . But I’ve learned to take it all in stride (从容地). After all, I know what often happens to these foreigners after they get home: Eating the fiery (非常辣的) dishes might be fun. But I’m told it’s certainly no fun when the food finally comes to the other end. By Charlie Shifflett 58. The article is mainly about ______. A. a traveling experience in Chengdu B. a foreigner’s disagreement with his friends C. a foreigner’s feelings about spicy food D. the love of many foreigners for spicy food 59.

Being laughed at by friends. B. Not trying China’s spiciest food. C. Trying China’s s piciest food. D. China’s spiciest food. 61. From the article we can conclude that the author ______. A. doesn’t like any kind of challenge

Besides noisy phone users, sending and receiving e-mails while in company are also as very poor manners, reports MSNBC.com. 67. _ One of the practices that participants in the survey most objected to was the use of phones, iPods and other devices during religious festivals. Some 90 per cent of those surveyed thought this was insensitive and disrespectful. 68. ___ The survey does suggest, according to MSNBC, that most Americans accepted that
the technologies are a fact of modern life. They had nothing against the use of laptops and cell phones in bathrooms.

七、书面表达 (共 1 题, 满分 15 分) (按照会考评分标准) Dear friends, As we all know, we are what we eat. Therefore, it’s very important for us to form healthy eating habits. However, bad eating habits are still
very common among us students. Some of us often go to school without breakfast; some like to have snacks; some others are particular about food; and still some eat or drink too much. All these bad habits will surely do harm to our health. To keep fit, we should have various healthy diets, which generally include proper amounts of fish, meat, vegetables, fruit as well as main food. Besides, we’d better have meals regularly. In my opinion, we should try to develop healthy eating habits to build up a strong body. Only in this way can we have enough energy to stud better. That’s all. Thank you!
