第二部分 阅读理解（第一节 20 小题，第二节 5 小题；每小题 2 分，满分 50 分） 第一节 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 答题卷上将该项涂黑。 A Recently there was a major discovery in the scientific research—the mapping of all DNA in a human gene（基因）is complete. Couple of years ago, this seems an impossible task for scientist to accomplish. All this progress in science leads us to believe that the day, when the human being will be cloned, is not far away. Human cloning has always been a topic of argument，in terms of morality or religion. Taking a look at why cloning might be beneficial, among many cases, it is arguable that parents who are known to be at risk of passing a genetic limitation to a child could make use of cloning. If the clone was free of genetic limitations, then the other clones would be as well. The latter could be inserted in the woman and allowed to ripen. Moreover，cloning would enable women, who can’t get pregnant, to have children of their own. Cloning humans would also mean that organs could be cloned, so it would be a source of perfect transfer organs. This, surely would be greatly beneficial to millions of unfortunate people
around the world that are expected to lose their lives due to failure of single(or more) organ(s） .It is also arguable that a ban on cloning may be unlawful and would rob people of the right to reproduce and limit the freedom of scientists. Arguments against cloning are also on a perfectly practical side. Primarily, I believe that cloning would step in the normal “cycle”of life. There would be a large number of same genes, which reduce the chances of improvement，and, in turn, development-the fundamental reason how living things naturally adapt to the ever-changing environment. Life processes failing to do so might result in untimely disappearance. Furthermore, cloning would make the uniqueness that each one of us possesses disappear, thus, leading to creation of genetically engineered groups of people for specific purposes and chances are that those individuals would be regarded as “objects” rather than people in the society. Scientists haven’t 100 percent guaranteed that the first cloned will be normal. Thus this could result in introduction of additional limitations in the human “gene-pool”. Regarding such arguable topics in “black or white” approach seems very innocent to me personally. We should rather try to look at all “shades” of it. I believe that cloning is only legal if its purpose is for cloning organs, not humans. Then we could regard this as for “saving life” instead of “creating life”. I believe cloning humans is morally and socially unacceptable. 41. Which of the following is true according to the passage？ A. Genetic limitation will be beneficial for some women B. A large number of genes will prevent us from developing C. Prohibition of cloning might limit the freedom of scientists D. First cloned humans might be normal according to scientists 42. What’s the author’s opinion on cloning? A. Cloning should be entirely banned B. Cloning should be used in creating life C. Cloning will take away the right to reproduce D. Cloning is acceptable if it is used for cloning organs 43. Where can you read this article? A. In a story book. B. In a magazine. C. In a science fiction 44. Which of the following shows the structure of the passage (①---⑥ stand for Para.1 ---Para.6)
D. In a brochure
B Conservationists have unveiled plans to preserve and protect the world's most important species of coral, in a response to increasing threats that they say will lead to "functional extinction" within decades． Led by scientists at the Zoological Society of London, the Edge Coral Reefs project has identified 10 coral species in most urgent risk of becoming extinct．The scientists say that reefs are under pressure from a variety of threats including rising sea temperatures due to climatic instability, increased acidity（酸性）, over fishing and pollution． The Edge plan, which focuses on the most evolutionarily distinct and globally endangered species , will take a regional approach to conservation．This means focusing on the "coral triangle" around the Philippines, the West Indian Ocean around the Mozambique channel, and in the Caribbean channel． "Coral reefs are threatened with functional extinction in the next 20-50 years, due mainly to global changeable climate," said Catherine Head, co-worker of the reefs project． these regions, "In we'll be supporting and training in-country conservationists to carry out research and perform targeted conservation actions," she said．"Their projects will last initially for two years．We provide them with a whole host of tools to carry out their projects including funding and intensive training．" She added． Coral reefs are the planet's most diverse marine ecosystem（生态系统）, known as the rainforests of the oceans． Despite taking up under 0． of the ocean floor, they provide food and 2% shelter for almost a third of all sea life．If we lose the ecosystems, we lose not only the biodiversity （生物多样性） but we also lose the capability of people to obtain income and food , from coral reefs． Changeable climate, which leads to rising sea temperatures, causes corals to bleach．Bleaching occurs when sea temperatures rise and this causes the coral tissue to drive away their symbiotic algae called zooxanthellae - these are what give the coral their colour. Bleached corals often die if the stress continues．Among the 10 species chosen to start the Edge project are the pearl bubble coral, a food source for the hawksbill（玳瑁）turtle, and the Mushroom coral, which supports at least 15 brightly colored fish．
45. What does the first paragraph mean in the passage? A. Conservationists planned to preserve and protect some extinct corals years ago． B. Conservationists have banned plans to protect endangered corals for years． C. Conservationists are going to protect corals that are dying out in several ten years． D. Conservationists have made plans to protect corals from being extinct in ten years． 46. What will probably happen to coral species with the increasing threats? A. Decrease． B. Losing functions． C. Disappearance． D. Existence． 47. Which of the following statements about the Edge Plan is TRUE? A. The Edge Coral Reefs project was carried out by American scientists． B. The plan concentrates on the channels to protect the endangered species． C. The Conservationists have carried out the Edge plan for many years to protect the corals． D. Ten coral species chosen by the project are at the greatest risk of becoming extinct． 48. Which of the following will be the consequence of coral extinction in the passage? A. We will keep the balance of the marine ecosystems． B. About one third of the marine species can't survive． C. Man can benefit more from corals． D. We will lose the rainforests on our earth． 49. What is the best title of the passage? A. Changeable Climate and Coral Extinction． B. Reasons for Coral Functional Extinction． C. A Plan to Save Coral from Extinction． D. A Research about Endangered Coral Reefs． C The British aren’t having as many children as they used to. One reason is that people are having children much older than before, meaning they have fewer years in which they can have them. After years at university, they need a few years of work experience before they can get the job they want. They might then get married, but it’s incredibly expensive to buy a house in the UK. The above explains why young British people now don’t move out of their parents’ home until they are around 30 years old on average. It is not until they are 30 that they can afford their own home. Increasingly, it is not until that age that they can afford to get married and start a new life in a new home. It’s only after this age that many young people start thinking about having a child. So a British person manages to get a job, get a home and get married. Why isn’t he or she then having at least two children on average? The main reason is that it is quite expensive to bring up a child in the UK. Why is it expensive? Well, these days, both parents need to work just to pay for their home and living expenses. Because both parents are at work, that means they then need to pay someone to look after their child during the day. Paying for this childcare is nearly always expensive. The recent financial crisis is making things even harder for families, since unemployment is rising and even fewer people can afford to have children. With so much pressure on families, is it any surprise that the divorce rate is so high? So what is Britain doing to try and save the British family? The government is trying to make it
cheaper to have children. For example, there have been increases in money families can claim from the state each month. Also, there are increasing government subsidies for nursery schools, so that parents do not need to pay so much for child care. The government is also trying to reduce the number of hours British parents have to work to earn enough money to pay their bills. If parents didn’t have to work so many hours, they’d have more time to spend with their children and wouldn’t need to spend so much on childcare. On average, a Briton works 49 hours a week, which is the most in Europe. The state is now considering introducing laws to encourage companies to improve their employees’ work-life balance. Let’s hope they’re not too late to save the British family. Otherwise, the British will always be too tired, and won’t have enough time and money, to have children. 50. The reason for young British people to live in their parents’ home until around 30 is that______. A. they enjoy family life with their parents. B. they don’t have enough money to get married. C. they just enjoy the lovers’ world. D. they can’t afford a house of their own before 30 years old. 51. The British are now having fewer children than before for all the following reasons EXCEPT that______. A. they live much shorter lives than before B. they have fewer years to have children C. it is more expensive to rear a child D. the recent financial crisis is making people losing their job. 52. In order to encourage people to have more children, the British government is ______. A. bringing down foods’ prices B. raising the salaries of parents C. increasing subsidies for families and nursery schools. D. reducing family income tax. 53. The underlined word “subsidies” in Paragraph 5 probably means _______. A. food supplied by the government. B. money from the government to benefit the public. C. free courses. D. free time to take care of their children. 54. What can be inferred from the passage? . A. More families in Britain are breaking up because they are having fewer children B. It is hard for British parents, who have to work long hours, to balance life and work. C. childcare takes up too much energy and time for the British young couples. D. British people work the longest and earn the least among Europeans. D Today I was at the mall waiting for friends, when a lady wearing a knit hat and a sweater came up to me and, shivering, said, “I’m homeless. Would you mind buying me some food?” In that split second, everything I’d learned since kindergarten flashed through my mind. Don’t talk to strangers … Be a good citizen … People will take advantage of you … Treat others as you wish to be treated … The greatest thing you’ll ever learn is just to love and be loved in
return … I guess love won the debate. “Sure,” I said. “What would you like?” She thought and then said, “I’d like to get Chinese food.” We headed upstairs. On the way she told me about when she was a teenager. She remembers taking pictures for the yearbook with her best friend. She was in the band and played basketball. She got good grades and was a good student. She ordered soup, an egg roll, white rice, and pepper chicken. I would normally think that was a lot, but she had probably barely eaten in the last few days. I got my usual – lo mein and General Tso’s chicken. As we ate, we got to know each other. She asked if I played any instruments. I replied that I played the violin, cello, and guitar. She told me she played the flute, piano, guitar, and violin. In the middle of our meal, I realized something. And she thought of it at exactly the same time. “So, what’s your name?” she asked. “I’m Claire,” I said, startled at our exact same thought. “What’s yours?” “Joyce,” she said with a smile. We continued talking, and she asked my favorite subjects in school and if I wanted to go to college. “Hopefully,” I replied. “I’m interested in nursing.” “I went to college for nursing,” she said. I was taken aback. How could we have so much in common? Was she pretending so I’d feel sympathy for her? But her eyes were genuine as she said this. Meanwhile I was eating my lo mein, picking around the cabbage and the other vegetables. Joyce said, “If you don’t like it you can take it back.” I told her that I liked it, but was not fond of the vegetables. She broke into a big grin. “You don’t like vegetables, huh? Neither did I. But now I do.” I immediately felt guilty. How could I be picking at my food across from someone who barely gets to eat at all? I tried my best to finish, but she seemed to sense my guilt and said, “You don’t have to eat it if you don’t want it.” How could she know what I was feeling? I told her the dish was my favorite, but I just eat slowly. She replied, “I used to like lo mein, but pepper chicken was my dad’s favorite, so I get that now.” Noticing that she used the word “was,” I assumed her dad had passed away. I found it sweet that she gave up her favorite in order to honor her dad. She asked why I was at the mall. “I’m waiting for friends. We’re going to see ‘The Curious Case of Benjamin Button,’” I replied, stumbling over the words a bit. “‘The Curious Case of Benjamin Button,’” she echoed in awe. “What’s that about?” I realized that she didn’t see commercials for movies. I explained the basic plot and she chuckled. “A man who is born 80 years old and ages backwards! That sounds interesting.” She got up to get a to-go box. “Would you like one?” she asked, but I refused. I realized that this food would probably last her for a few days, and I was glad she had ordered a lot. “Would you like these?” I asked, gesturing at the food I had left untouched. “Oh, no, thank you,” she said. “This is enough.” I got up to throw my tray away, feeling guilty about wasting so much. “I need to meet my friends now,” I explained. “It was so nice to meet you, Joyce.” “You too, Claire,” she replied with a smile. “Thank you.”
I headed to the theater, and she went back downstairs. It sounds like a perfect coincidence, but I can’t help but think that some force compelled us to meet. I kept puzzling, Why is Joyce homeless? It seems so unfair. She shouldn’t need people to buy her dinner. She was a nurse. She got good grades. She took pictures for her yearbook. She was the person I hope to be in the future. What went wrong? How could such a good life be rewarded with horrible luck? I feel lucky to have run into Joyce. She changed my outlook. She is still a wonderful person, despite what the world has done to her. I wish her the best, and can only hope that the force that brought us together will help her find what she deserves in life. 55. From the second paragraph we know that the writer _________. A. hesitated before she decided to reach out B. hates having to make a quick decision C. debated with the girl over moral issues D. fell in love with the girl at the first sight 56. The writer felt guilty for a moment because ________. A. she was a strict vegetarian who ate very little B. she was particular about food and also wasted so much C. she didn’t order enough food for the girl D. she urged the girl to take her share of food 57. Why did Joyce end up unemployed and homeless? A. She was a victim of high education B. She actually had some kind of mental disorder C. She graduated with average grades D. The reason is not yet given. 58. Which detail doesn’t show the coincidence in the story? A. They both took interest in nursing. B. They were about to ask names of each other at the same time. C. When Claire headed to the theater, Joyce went back downstairs. D. They were both musical lovers. 59. The writer was very happy to have met Joyce because______. A. she didn’t know what she was going to be until then. B. this chance meeting changed her attitudes towards life in a way. C. she was glad to be able to pay for someone in need. D. hopefully the force that brought them together may bring good luck to Joyce. 60. The passage is intended to _______. A. share a sweet personal story B. explore social problems C. teach readers a lesson D. arouse readers’ curiosity 第二节 ：下面文章中有 5 处（第 61-65 题）需要添加小标题。请从以下选项（A、B、C、 D、E 和 F）中选出符合各段意思的小标题，并在答题卷上将该项涂黑。选项中有 一项是多余选项。 A. Prepare for Rainy Days B. Watch Your Spending C. Get Aggressive D. Start Saving E. Set the Goal
F. Save More Steps to Retire a Millionaire Having a million-dollar portfolio is a retirement dream for many people. Making that dream come true requires some serious effort. While success is never a sure thing, the steps outlined below will go a long way toward helping you achieve your objective. 61. ________________ Vacations, car, kids and all of life's other expenses take a big chunk out of your paycheck. To maximize your savings, you need to minimize your expenses. Buying a home you can afford and living a lifestyle that is below your means and not funded by credit cards are all necessities if you want to boost your savings. 62. __________________ If you don't save, you'll never reach your goal. As obvious as this might seems, far too many people never even start to save. If your employer offers a 401(k) plan, enrolling in the plan is a great way to put your savings on autopilot. Simply sign up for the plan and contributions will be automatically taken out of your paycheck, increasing your savings and decreasing your immediate tax liability. If your employer offers to match your contributions up to a certain percentage, be sure to contribute enough to get the full match. It's like getting a guaranteed return on your investment. Finding the cash to stash may be a challenge, particularly when you're young, but don't let that stop you from pursuing future riches. 63. ___________________ Studies have shown that the majority of the returns generated by an investment are dictated by the asset-allocation decision. If you are looking to grow your wealth over time, fixed-income investments aren't likely to get the job done, and inflation can take a big chunk out of your savings. Investing in equities entails more risk, but is also statistically likely to lead to greater returns. For many of us, it's a risk we have to take if want to see our wealth grow. Asset-allocation strategies can help you learn how to make picking the right mix of securities the core of your investing strategy. 64. _________________ Part of long-term planning involves accepting the idea that setbacks will occur. If you are not prepared, these setbacks can put a stop to your savings efforts. While you can't avoid all of the bumps in the road, you can prepare in advance to mitigate the damage they can do. 65. ____________________ Your income should rise as time passes. You'll get raises, you'll change jobs, and maybe you'll get married and become a two-income family. Every time more cash comes in to your pocket, you should increase the amount that you save. The key to reaching your goal as quickly as possible is to save as much as you can.

阅读理解:（分两节, 共 5 小题; 每小题 2 分, 满分 10 分） 阅读下面的短文，并根据短文后的要求答题。 We have all heard the sayings: Stop and smell the roses; live today. They simply mean we can slow down and live in the moment. To live in the moment does not mean that you do not concern yourself with tomorrow; it does mean that you concern yourself more with today. ① . There is nothing you can change about what happened in the past except regret what you did or did not do. Let it go. ② . Think back to those vivid memories you have stored. That vacation, things you did with your best friend. All of those things you remember in detail are times you lived in the moment. You didn’t worry at the time what was for dinner, what you had to do at work the next day. For that period of time, you were living in the moment. It helps people little just to live in the future. They think to themselves, if only this would happen, then I would be happy. If only I could get the raise, if only I could get that done, if only this, if only that. Every time they do achieve that “if only”, they find out they need something else. ③ . Take a look at what you do have that is good and be happy. Allow yourself to quit worrying about what may happen and experience what is happening now. Here are a few tips for you to train yourself to live in the moment. 1. Make a list of all you do have that makes you happy. Some of them may not be what you long to be, but remind yourself that many others may not be as lucky as you are. 2. Do something special for a loved one without expecting anything in return, including a “thank you”. Just watch their faces, see their enjoyment and know only you could do it for them. 3. Keep a journal. Write down everything good that has happened to you this day. Before long, you will begin to see the good as it happens and you will be in the moment as it does. 4. ④ . Laughter is and has always been the best medicine. By learning to laugh, you learn to enjoy everything life throws at you. Living in the moment is not hard, but it is a skill to be learned. Start small and learn to take each day as it comes. Grasp today! Don’t just get absorbed in imagining the future. All time is no time when it is past. 第一节：根据短文内容，从 A, B, C, D, E 中选出最适合填入短文空缺处的选项，并将序号及 相应答案写在答题纸上。选项中有一项是多余的。 A. Find the humor in any situation you’re in. B.
