ow up in a library, but sometimes it felt that way．My parents were both keen readers．For the next 30 years after they got married, a steady stream of books flowed into our home． It wasn't until about the fourth grade that I realized what a vast resource （资源） I had． I was doing a report on the coelacanth, a prehistoric fish that was believed to be extinct until rediscovered in the early 1950s．I asked my dad to drive to the city library, but he said we didn't need to． Then he pulled a book I wanted from one of the shelves in the room． I was astonished． It had never occurred to me that grown-ups would buy a book about an exotic fish for their own personal enrichment． Reading habits can tell you a lot about someone's character and worldview．My dad was interested in almost everything: history, natural science, mysteries, politics-there wasn't a kind he hadn't explored． When my mother thought a book was significant, she marked on the title page． As a teenager I made a modest effort to familiarize myself with some of the famous titles in 20th-century American fiction．When my mother passed away, my dad sold the big house and moved to southern California．Many books went with him, and a lot more stayed behind in a storage unit he rented for me．I've moved three times since then．Over the years, the library my parents created has decreased as my wife and I sorted through the shelves before each move and decided which volumes we should keep and which ones could be sent back into circulation （市场 交流） ． Books connect a reader to all of humanity．It would have been nice to keep every one of my parents' books within my reach, but having hundreds of them doing nothing but sitting idly（闲置 地） on shelves year after year is a bad idea． 21．The writer mentioned his experience in paragraph 2 in order to tell us that ______． A．his father had a wide range of books B．his father took great interest in animals C．he had a large amount of various books D．his hobby was influenced by his father 22．What would the writer's mother do if she thought highly of a book? A．She talked about it with her friends． B．She recommended it to his son． C．She wrote something on it． D．She gave it a high mark． 23．What do the words "a bad idea" in the last paragraph refer to? A．Sending some books back into market B．Keeping books within reach．
C．Doing nothing but sitting． D．Owning books but not reading them． 24．What can be the best title for the text? A．Life is like a library, isn't it? B．Life without books? Unimaginable! C．Parents are human best books in life． D．How to keep good books． B Discover the beautiful, silent, white world or Antarctica on the holidays of a lifetime．Head South to Buenos Aires and then transfer to the world's most southern city, Ushuaia． From there, it's about 1,000 kilometers on a special icebreaker ship to the freezing temperature of Antarctica． Getting off the ship and taking your first step onto the ice, you will imagine what it is like to be an explorer．Meet Adelie penguins（企鹅） sitting on their eggs, or see an Antarctic seal that lives all the year round on the ice． But do not get closer than five meters to any animal, in case you frighten it or make it angry． The friendly crew of the ship will look after you as you explore the ice continent. We promise you fantastic meals and a comfortable bed—you sleep in a four-person cabin — as well as many special treats．If you don't think it is cold enough, try the ''polar plunge"—jump into a special hole dug in the ice and dip your head under the water．You can then jump into a hot bath and if you succeed we will give you a certificate． After you wake up for the first time in the Antarctica you will understand why everybody who goes there falls in love with the place．The scenery is different every day because the sea ice is always moving． Our ships travel to Antarctica from November to March— phone today and book your dream holiday! 25．How should you behave when you see animals on Antarctica? A．Don't take photos with them． B．Don't watch them too near． C．Sit on the legs of the penguin． D．Never make them angry． 26．If you want to get a certificate, you have to _____． A．sleep in a four-person cabin B．try the "polar plunge" C．have a bath in hot water D．dive in the sea 27．The author writes this text mainly to ______． A．describe what Antarctica is like B．attract more tourists to Antarctica C．call for people to discover Antarctica D．tell about the scenery in Antarctica C As the mother of a daughter born in 2000, I often wonder what the 21st century will hold for her generation in the UK．As she and her peers grow up, will their lives be easier or harder than that of their parents? As the saying goes, "Change is not always for the better"．Take social communication, for example．Now many teenagers spend hours locked away in their bedrooms shooting virtual soldiers, while others sit home alone, chatting with friends, not in person, but through social
networks．Teachers, politicians and parents have sincere reasons to argue that young people like this are in danger of losing the ability to connect with one another , to develop sincere relationship and to separate the fictional world from the real world. Others worry about the increasing breakdown of the family unit and link that to the prevalence（普遍）of youth crime and antisocial behavior, or the problems of youth’s taking drugs or alcohol. Indeed, the gap between rich and poor could well increase, as unemployment figures rise and the cost of higher education increases. But being a teenager in the 21st century is not all doom and gloom（悲观） ．Young people today can enjoy living in a far more multicultural, integrated（相互协调的）society in which opportunities are more equal and which is increasingly environmentally aware. They benefit from better child protection policies, a wide range of educational activities, and clearer guidance on leading healthy lifestyles. In the future they will benefit from huge new technological inventions which will influence every aspect of their lives, from entertainment to transport．They will see medical advances which could rid diseases like malaria and AIDS．They will live longer, work smarter and they will even have a greater understanding of the universe. 28．What does the author think about life in the 21 st century? A．It will get worse and worse. B．There’ll be both good and bad. C．It will get better and better. D．There’ll be more difficulties. 29．In the passage, the writer mentions that . A．family plays an important role in society B．family problems make the young lock themselves in C．strong families introduce better child protection policies D．family crimes are common among the youth 30．The writer feels that in the future the technology will . A．affect the way children communicate with society B．influence all sides of life of children C．provide children with guidance on leading a healthy life D．offer more opportunities and joy 31．Which of the following problems could be a problem for life in the 21 st century? A．The fall of the unemployment figure. B．Technological inventions. C．The rising cost of university education. D．AIDS and Malaria. D It is arguable that had not James Murray’s 11 children assisted in the work, the oxford English Dictionary (OED) would never have seen the light of day. Every afternoon the children collected the recently arrived slips. As each child reached an age when he or she could read, they were pressed into service. Jowett, the youngest son, describes sorting slips in the 1890s. ―We received no pocket money, but had to earn it by sorting slips. Hours and hours of our childhood were spent in this useful occupation. But we wanted money for Christmas or birthday presents. We were not paid according to skill or speed. The standard rate was one penny an hour, but his rose to two pence, three pence, or even six pence as you grew in your teens.‖ Dictionaries have become much more advanced since those days. In march 2000 the OED Online became available on the World Wide Web. It’s made up of 60 million words of text, and describes nearly 750,000 terms used in English over the past thousand years. It represents the
initial findings of a 20–year project to revise the OED. Of course computer technology has been a great help to this work. While revising the OED, editors now have access to a huge body of electronic data in addition to their more traditional resources. Special search software allows editors to analyze information in ways that were unimaginable even 20 years ago – including examining the text of the OED itself on a computer screen. Technology is not new to the OED, as editing has been computerized since the early 1980s. the challenge was not the length of the dictionary but its complexity – the need to maintain the old structure rather than adapting the text to make software design easier. One particular challenge was the accurate display of words from the many languages to which English owes a debt, and over thousand special shapes and characters were created for this purpose. The biggest challenge in making OED Online was accessibility. They wanted to create a website that the reader is led directly to the meaning of each word without any of the technical tools used by scholars. 32．The amount of money the children earned depended on ______． A．their age B．the speed C．the number of slips they sorted D．their need for money 33．Today, the OED is more accessible because ______． A．it contains 60 million words B．readers can find the meanings of words more easily C．it allows editors lo analyse information in new ways D．foreign words are accurately displayed 34. Since 1980 computer technology has been used by ______． A．readers to read online B．editors to analyse information in various ways C．readers to examine the text of OED D．editors to revise the OED 35．What does the word "They" in the last paragraph refer to? A．Readers of OED． B．OED scholars． C．Many foreign languages． D．OED editors． 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。 If you're looking for a challenging situation to practice your English, pick up the phone．Not being able to see the other person and the body language can make the chatting difficult． 36___ Here are some tips to guide you through an average phone conversation in English． 1．Greetings Every phone call should begin with a polite greeting such as, Hi, how've you been? or Nice to hear from you． Even if you're calling a business contact for a specific purpose, it'd be rude to jump right into business． 37 2．Getting to the point There always comes the point where you want to move on from friendly chatting and get down to business．What should you do in this situation? __38 However, if you are waiting to find out why someone called you, you can guide the conversation by saying,So what can I do for you?
