三、阅读理解(共 20 小题,每题 2 分,满分 40 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。 A The Top 4 Lies Girls Hear 1. “You'll never be good at math.” It's generally accepted that boys are good at math while girls aren't. The fact is that it isn't true—at least, it doesn't have to be. When girls reach their teens, most of them lose their interest in math. They're trying to be regarded as female( 女性).They want to stay away from things that are

boy things, and math is still considered a boy thing. Math class is hard, but if you gave it a chance, you could be great at math, especially because you are a girl.. 2. “Being skinny is good, and how you diet is your business.” Lots of websites tell visitors that losing interest in eating is a beautiful thing. These “skinny is better”sites are lying. Losing interest in eating is a disease, not a fashion statement. It can kill you. 3. “You don't deserve to make as much money as a guy.” It's said that in 2002 women who work full-time earn about 23 percent less than guys earn. Once you see real women succeeding in cool jobs, you'll truly get that you're worth just as much as —or more than any guys. 4. “Caffeine( 咖啡因)will help you study better.” Caffeinated soft drinks have long been advertised as must haves when you have to work very hard. But if you want to do your body a big favor, you'd better give up caffeine altogether. 36. Why do girls lose their interest in math? A.Because they don't realize the importance of math. B. Because math class is too hard for girls. C.Because they aren't interested in the things which are considered boy things. D.Because girls are not as clever as boys. 37. The word “skinny” means________. A. pretty probably get? A.$15,000 B.$10,000 C.$20,000 D.$25,000 B.strong C.tall D.slim

38. Supposing in 2002 a man earns $20,000, how much will a woman who doing the same job

39. Which of the statement is NOT true? A. Girls sometimes can do better than boys in math. B. Being skinny is good for girls health. C. Girls can earn as much money as boys do. D. Caffeine can make people feel more excited.

B Think about what you usually have for a meal: Is it a hamburger? What about vegetables? Would it surprise you to learn that what you eat can affect the whole planet? It can—in a big way. Scientists attending the American Association for the Advancement of Science meeting in Chicago presented new studies showing how food and its production affect the globe and its warming climate. It is generally believed that global warming is caused by the large amounts of greenhouse gases released into the atmosphere. One of these greenhouse gases is carbon dioxide What does this have to do with food? A big part of the carbon dioxide comes from the


process of making and eating food, the scientists reported in Chicago. The production of meat contributes a lot of that carbon dioxide. The process of making a hamburger, for example, requires a lot of energy. A cow has to be fed and raised on farmland, and cow manure( 粪肥) is a major source of methane( 甲烷)----an especially powerful greenhouse gas. By the time a hamburger is finally served on a dinner plate, it has done great harm to the environment. The message from the research is clear: We can greatly reduce the production of greenhouse gases by eating less meat. All kinds of meat, the scientists reported, are harder on the planet than vegetables. To grow and eat a pound of potatoes, for example, sends less than one—quarter pound of carbon dioxide or other warming gases into the air. So shifting our diet to less meat and more vegetables, as it turns out, may do the world some good. 40. Generally speaking, people believe that global warming is caused by A. cutting down too many trees. B. raising too many cows C. growing too many vegetables D. releasing too much greenhouse gases 41. The production of meat produces a lot of A. green houses C. cow manure 42. Which of the following is NOT true? A. To make and eat meat requires a great deal of energy. B. To feed and raise cows on farmland contributes greenhouse gases. C. To grow and eat vegetables does no harm to the environment. D. To make and eat hamburgers sends harmful gases into the air. 43. Writing the passage, the writer seemingly intends to . A. appeal to us to protect the environment by eating less meat food B. persuade us to develop a good eating habit to keep healthy C. advise us to make less hamburgers in order to save energy D. encourage us to grow more vegetables to reduce greenhouse gases C Women gave more to charity ( 慈善) than men, nearly twice as much in some cases, according to a study by Indiana University. People have long suspected that women were the driving forces behind many of the gif ts they received, but they haven’t had much proof. But the results of this study are so decisive that they can stop wondering, said Debra Mesch, director of the university. The study offered several factors the researchers thought led to the growing generosity of women. More women are working and their incomes have grown and more have college degrees that improve greater earning power. Early research has shown that women encourage their husbands to give to charity and that women seem to be making a lot of c haritable decisions. The


. B. carbon dioxide D. methane source

general people think that women might be more likely to give, but that they give less money. Suzie Upton, officer of the American Heart Association, said her organization had no data showing women are more generous donors than men. “We target lots of our efforts to women, not because they are more generous, but because they are the decision-makers for themselves and for their families,”Upton said. World Vis ion, a non-profit organization, was not surprised by the results of the study. It has known for decades that its target donor is a 47-year-old, college-educated woman. Last year, about 3000 members fo the group donated a total of $7 million to World Vis ion. The American Red Cross also has targeted women for bigger gifts throughout its history. 44. The underlined word “decisive ” in Paragraph 1 probably means__________. A. logical B. common C. reliable 45. Why do people consider women as the driving forces? A. Women donates more to charity. B. Women are in charge of their families. C. Women have learned more knowledge. D. Women are more willing to share their things. 46. Women are becoming more and more generous because __________. A. they have gained more confidence B. they are able to make more money C. they become more and more clever D. they get more money from their parents. 47. It is generally thought that ___________. A. women want to stay at home B. women are more kind-hearted C. women often give more money D. women are less likely to give much money D He was just 12 years old when he died. But he brought courage and hope to people around the world. Nkosi Johnson, who died last June, is remembered today as an AIDS fighter. This young boy challenged his government’s AIDS policies and united millions of South Africans in the fight against the disease. Johnson was the longest surviving person born HIV positive.( 艾滋病病毒呈阳性) He survived with this deadly disease for 12 years before it caused the death of Johnson. At first, Johnson was expected to live for nine months when his foster mother ( 养母), Gail Johnson, took him in at the age of two. She now runs Nkosi Haven across town from her house in Melville. The Haven is home to 20 children living with HIV or AIDS, and 11 of their mothers. Johnson attracted the world’s attention and stole the hearts of thousands of people across the world at the 13th International AIDS Conference in Durban in July 2000. He stood in front of a large audience including South African President Thabo Mbeki. He told them that he wanted AZT, a drug used to treat AIDS patients, to be given HIV-positive pregnant women to


prevent the disease being passed on to their unborn babies. He received a loud cheer at the end of his speech. Johnson’s speech was broadcast live across the world. With views beyond his age and even a sense of humor, Johnson soon became an international sign of the fight against AIDS and HIV . 48. Johnson became an HIV—pos itive__________. A. At the age of two B. After the age of two C. Before he was born D. After his foster —mother took him home 49. The AIDS child gave the speech in order to _____. A. steal the hearts of thousands of people C. get more help from the world 50. . From the passage we can infer that _____. B. be an AIDS fighter D. fight against the government

A. the government’s AIDS policies have to be improved B. the government did nothing to help those with HIV positive C. the boy’s speech changed the government’s policies D. no other HIV positive patient lived longer than the boy 51. . The best title for this passage is “______”. A. The Sad Story of an AIDS Child C. AIDS, a Deadly Disease E Silence is unnatural to man. He begins life with a cry and ends it in stillness. In between he does all he can to make a noise in the world, and he feats silence more than anything else. Even his conversation is an attempt to prevent a fearful silence. If he is introduced to another person, and a number of pauses occur in the conversation, he regards himself as a failure, a worthless person, and is full of envy of the emptiest headed chatterbox (喋喋不休的人). He knows that ninety-nine percent of human conversation means no more than the buzzing of a fly, but he is anxious to join in the buzz and to prove that he is a man and not a waxwork figure ( 蜡塑人像). The aim of conversation is not, for the most part, to communicate ideas; it is to keep up the buzzing sound. There are, it must be admitted, different qualities of buzz; there is even a buzz that is as annoying as the continuous noise made by a mosquito ( 蚊子). But at a dinner party one would rather be a mosquito than a quiet person. Most buzzing, fortunately, is pleasant to the ear, and some of it is pleasant even to the mind. He would be a foolish man if he waited until he had a wise thought to take part in the buzzing with his neighbors. Those who hate to pick up the weather as a conversational opening seem to me not to know the reason why human beings wish to talk. V ery few human beings join in a conversation in the hope of learning anything new. Some of them are content if they are merely allowed to go on making a noise into other peoples ears, though they have nothing to tell them except that they have seen two or three new plays or that they had food in a Swiss hotel At the end of an evening during which they have said nothing meaningful for a long time, they just prove themselves to be successful conservationists. B. The Courage of an AIDS Child D. A Hero in South Africa


52. According to the author, people make conversation to ______ A. overcome their fear of silence C. achieve success in life B. prove their value D. exchange ideas

53. By "the buzzing of a fly" (Para. 1), the author means "________”. A. the noise of an insect C. meaningless talks B. a low whispering sound D. the voice of a chatterbox

54. According to the passage, people usually talk to their neighbors ______. A. about whatever they have prepared C. in the hope of learning something new B. about whatever they want to D. in the hope of getting on well

55. What is the author's purpose in writing the passage? ________. A. To discuss why people like talking about weather. B. To encourage people to join in conversations. C. To persuade people to stop making noises. D. To explain why people keep talking. 四、写作 (共两个写作任务 . 满分 35分 ) 写作一(满分15分) 请结合材料,按要求用英文写作。 If you are honest, you’ll be trusted and respected by others.

I have learned a lot from my experience of being dishonest. When I was in Senior One, I was so eager to get a high score that I cheated in the English examination. Although nobody discovered it ,I had no sense f success at all. Instead, I felt guilty and it bothered me for a long time. Worse still, I was afraid that my friends would know about it and no longer trust me. So from then on, I have been determined never to be dishonest. Otherwise, I will be looked down upon and lose all my good friends. 写作(二) (满分 20 分) My honorable teachers and fellow students : In a few weeks, we’ll say goodbye to our mother school. How time flies!

To make the journey safe and fruitful, our great teachers contributed their time, energy, love and the whole heart. Here, we are extremely grateful for all that you, dear teachers, have done for us. It’ll soon be the time for us to depart, though unwillingly. But it is not the end. It just means that we’re going to begin a new journey. Finally, on behalf of all the graduates present here, let me extend our sincere wishes for our mother school and respectable teachers. That’s all. Thanks for your attention.
