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：阅读下列材料，从每题所给的四个选项(A、B、C 和 D)中，选出最佳选项 A When people first walked across the Bering Land Bridge thousands of years ago, dogs were by their sides, according to a study published in the journal Science. Robert Wayne of the University of California, Los Angeles, and Jennifer Leonard of the Smithsonian Institute, used DNA material—some of it unearthed by miners in Alaska—to conclude that today’s domestic dog originated in Asia and accompanied the first humans to the New World about 10,000 to 15,000 years ago. Wayne suggests that man’s best friend may have enabled the tough journey from Asia into North America. “Dogs may have been the reason people made it across the land bridge,” said Wayne. “They can pull things, carry things, defend you from fierce animals, and they’re useful to eat.” Researchers have agreed that today’s dog is the result of the domestication(驯 化) of wolves thousands of years ago. Before this recent study, a common thought about the precise origin of North America’s domestic dog was that Natives domesticated local wolves, the descendents(后代) of which now live with people in Alaska, Canada, and the Lower 48. Dog remains from a Fairbanks-area gold mine helped the scientists reach their conclusion. Leonard, an evolutionary biologist, collected DNA from 11 bones of ancient dogs that were locked in permafrost(永冻层) until Fairbanks miners uncovered them in the 1920s. The miners donated the preserved bones to the American Museum of Natural History in New York City, where they remained untouched for more than 70 years. After borrowing the bones from the museum, Leonard and her colleagues used radiocarbon techniques to find the age of the Alaska dogs. They found the dogs all lived between the years of 1450 and 1675 A.D., before Vitus Bering and Aleksey Chirikov who were the first known Europeans to view Alaska in 1741. The bones of dogs that wandered the Fairbanks area centuries ago should therefore be the remains of “pure native American dogs,” Leonard said. The DNA of the Fairbanks dogs would also expose whether they were the descendents of wolves from North America. Along with the Fairbanks samples, the researchers collected DNA from bones of
37 dog specimens(标本) from Mexico, Peru, and Bolivia that existed before the arrival of Columbus. In the case of both the Alaska dogs and the dogs from Latin America, the researchers found that they shared the most genetic material with gray wolves of Europe and Asia. This supports the idea of domestic dogs entering the New World with the first human explorers who wandered east over the land bridge. Leonard and Wayne’s study suggests that dogs joined the first humans that made the adventure across the Bering Land Bridge to slowly populate the Americas. Wayne thinks the dogs that made the trip must have provided some excellent service to their human companions or they would not have been brought along. “Dogs must have been useful because they were expensive to keep,” Wayne said. “They didn’t feed on mice; they fed on meat, which was a very guarded resource.” 41. The underlined word “remains” is closed in meaning to ______. A. leftover food B. animal waste C. dead bodies D. living environment
42. According to the study described in Paragraph 4, we can learn that ______. A. ancient dogs entered North America between 1450 and 1675 AD B. the 11 bones of ancient dogs are not from native American dogs C. the bones discovered by the gold miners were from North American wolves D. the bones studied were not from dogs brought into North America by Europeans 43. What can we know from the passage? A. Native Americans domesticated local wolves into dogs. B. Scientists discovered some ancient dog remains in 1920s. C. Latin America’s dogs are different from North America’s in genes. D. Ancient dogs entered North America across the Bering Land Bridge. 44. The first humans into the New World brought dogs along with them because ______. A. dogs fed on mice B. dogs were easy to keep C. dogs helped protect their resources D. dogs could provide excellent service 45. What does the passage mainly talk about ______. A. the origin of the North American dogs
B. the DNA study of ancient dogs in America C. the reasons why early people entered America D. the difference between Asian and American dogs B Although travelers can try dishes from around China and the globe in well-known food cities like Beijing and Shanghai, it is outside these major metropolises where a world of exciting Chinese cuisine(中国菜) awaits the true foodie(美食家). With this in mind and after three years of living in China and writing about Chinese food, I started a six-month journey with my husband and two daughters. Here are four of the eight most amazing Chinese food cities I’ve come across so far. The list is in no particular order. 1. Chengdu, Sichuan Province Crowned as Asia’s first UNESCO City of Gastronomy(美食学) in 2010, Chengdu is best-known for its fiery hot pot and spicy dishes, which are characterized by the use of Sichuan pepper and are usually layered with salty, sour and sweet flavors. There are also dishes that aren’t spicy at all, such as beer-braised duck. Hot pot is as ubiquitous in the city as the smell of chili. At Zigong Delicious Hotpot, the house specialty( 招牌菜 ) tiaoshui wa is a cauldron( 大锅 ) of fiery chili(辣椒) to which vegetables, noodles or other meats can be added. For a real taste of Sichuan’s signature（招牌）pepper, hua jiao, spend a morning at the Chengdu Spice Market where the locals sell and buy it by the sack.
2. Lanzhou, Gansu Province
Synonymous in the minds of food-lovers with hand-pulled beef noodles, Lanzhou also has one of the liveliest street food night markets in China. Just west of the city center, the buzzing Zhengning Road bazaar（集市）houses more than 100 street food stalls. Available is a broad selection of hot and cold dishes with emphasis on local Hui cuisine. No trip to Lanzhou is complete without feasting on noodles at Wumule Penhui, the 2012 winners of Lanzhou’s annual pulled noodle competition. The halal restaurant makes noodles spicy enough to satisfy even the most hardened heat-seekers.
3. Guangzhou, Guangdong Province
The birthplace of Cantonese food, Guangzhou is thought by many as the best place to eat in China. The city of 12 million has a passionate food culture, with equal excitement reserved for the opening of a hole-in-the-wall congee joint（粥店）and a high-end restaurant. The local cuisine is characterized by fresh clean flavors（口味）, seafood, barbecued meats and the wonderful tradition of yum cha, which is tea drinking accompanied by dumplings and small dishes. Congee is the way locals love to start their day, and one of the most popular vendors is Ru Xuan Sha Guo Zhou. Here, one can get a bowl of signature seafood congee any hour of the day. Roast meats are Bing Sheng’s most popular order—their roast goose is marinated （腌制）with five-spice, boiled, air-dried, then roasted by a flame oven to give a crisp skin. For something more home style and removed from the madness of downtown, head to Ji Cun for steamed chicken and simple farmer-style dishes.
4. Shaoxing, Zhejiang Province
This ancient canal city is home to huangjiu, an amber-colored rice wine that’s important in Chinese cooking. Open since 1894, the dining chain is known by almost every Chinese for its appearance in early 20th century novels by Chinese literati Lu Xun. Xianheng’s delicacies（佳肴）include crispy-skinned chicken, smoked red dates in rice wine, beans flavored with fennel(茴香), and crispy bream in rice wine. Fried fermented（发酵的）tofu is also a local specialty, which is available all over town at small street stalls including one just outside Xianheng. 46. The writer’s purpose of the passage is to ____________. A. share her story and impression on Chinese cuisines B. tell readers how to comment on amazing Chinese food cities C. talk the readers into enjoying the signature food such as hand-pulled noodles D. express her preference for fiery hot pot and spicy dishes in Chengdu.
47. The underlined word “ubiquitous” can be replaced by ____________. A. charming and attractive C. common and popular B. smelly and disgusting D. fiery and spicy
48. If a fresh clean flavor is to a foodie’s taste, which couple of cities is he likely to make a trip to? A. Chengdu, Lanzhou C. Guangzhou, Shaoxing B. Lanzhou, Guangzhou D. Shaoxing, Chengdu
49. According to the writer, what message of food culture is brought out in the passage? A. Cantonese food is characterized by a sea of marinated dishes. B. Huangjiu is widely believed to be essential in Chinese cooking. C. Pepper, chili and huajiao play an important role in all Sichuan dishes. D. Hand-pulled beef noodle is a speciality in local Hui cuisine. C We discuss the issue of when to help a patient die. Doctors of our generation are not newcomers to this question. Going back to my internship（实习）days, I can remember many patients in pain, sometimes in coma(昏迷), with late, hopeless cancer. For many of them, we wrote an order for heavy medication—morphine(吗啡)by the clock. This was not talked about openly and little was written about it. It was essential, not controversial. The best way to bring the problem into focus is to describe two patients whom I cared for. The first, formerly a nurse, had an automobile accident. A few days later her lungs seemed to fill up; her heart developed dangerous rhythm disturbances. So there she was: in coma, on a breathing machine, her heartbeat maintained with an electrical device. One day after rounds, my secretary said the husband and son of the patient wanted to see me. They told me their wife and mother was obviously going to die; she was a nurse and had told her family that she never wanted this kind of terrible death, being maintained by machines. I told them that while I respected their view, there was nothing deadly about her situation. The kidney(肾) failure she had was just the kind for which the artificial kidney was most effective.
While possibly a bit reassured, they were disappointed. Here was the head surgeon seemingly determined to keep everybody alive, no matter what. Within a few days the patient's pacemaker(起搏器) could be removed and she awoke from her coma. About six months later, the door of my office opened and in walked a gloriously fit woman. After some cheery words of appreciation, the father and son asked to speak to me alone. As soon as the door closed, both men became quite tearful. All that came out was, "We want you to know how wrong we were." The second patient was an 85-year-old lady whose hair caught fire while she was smoking. She arrived with a deep burn; I knew it would surely be deadly. As a remarkable coincidence there was a meeting for discussion going on at the time in medical ethics(道德). The speaker asked me if I had any sort of ethical problem I could bring up for discussion. I described the case and asked the students their opinion. After the discussion, I made a remark that was, when looking back, a serious mistake. I said, "I'll take the word back to the nurses about her and we will talk about it some more before we decide." The instructor and the students were shocked: "You mean this is a real patient?" The teacher of ethics was not accustomed to being challenged by actuality. In any event, I went back and met with the nurses. A day or two later, when she was making no progress and was suffering terribly, we began to back off treatment. Soon she died quietly and not in pain. As a reasonable physician, you had better move ahead and do what you would want done for you. And don't discuss it with the world first. There is a lesson here for everybody. Assisting people to leave this life requires strong judgment and long experience to avoid its misuse. 50. In the early days when a patient had got a deadly, hopeless illness, _____. A. doctors used to ask the patient to go back home and wait for death B. doctors would write all their treatment plan on the patient’s medical record C. doctors would talk about their treatment plan openly D. usually doctors would inject more morphine into the patient to end his life
52. In the second paragraph, why were they disappointed? A. Their wife and mother was going to die. B. They doctor didn’t do as they asked to. C. Their wife and mother had to receive a kidney transplant. D. The doctor scolded them for their cruelty
53. At the meeting, the author discussed with the students_____. A. how to help patients end their lives B. the importance of mercy killing C. the relationship between mercy killing and ethics D. the case about an old lady 54. The author suggested that doctors_____ before they assist a patient in killing himself. A. discuss it with the others first B. make sure there is no other choice left C. be required to do so first by the patient D. give the patient enough morphine 55. Which of the following can best describe the author? A. Cruel. Considerate. D My grandson, Daniel, and I have always been very close. When Daniel’s father remarried after a divorce, Daniel, who was eleven, and his little sister, Kristie, came to live with us. My husband and I were more than happy to have kids in the house again. Things were going along just fine until the diabetes (糖尿病) I’ve lived with most of my adult life started affecting my eyes, and then more seriously, my kidneys (肾). Then everything seemed to fall apart. Three times a week, I had to go to the hospital to be hooked up to a dialysis machine (透析机). I was living, but I couldn’t really call it a life --- it was
an existence. I had no energy. I dragged myself through daily chores and slept as much as I could. My sense of humor seemed to disappear. Daniel, seventeen by then, was really affected by the change in me. He tried as hard as he could to make me laugh, to bring back the grandma who loved to clown around (开玩笑) with him. Even in my sorry state, Daniel could still bring a smile to my face. But things were not improving. After a year on dialysis, my condition was deteriorating ( 恶 化) and the doctors felt that if I didn’t receive a kidney transplant within six months, I would surely die. No one told Daniel this, but he knew --- he said all he had to do was look after me. To top it off, as my condition worsened, there was a chance that I would become too weak to have the transplant surgery at all, and then there would be nothing they could do for me. So we started the tense and desperate wait for a kidney. I was adamant (坚决的) that I didn’t want a kidney from anyone I knew. I would wait until an appropriate kidney became available, or I would literally die waiting. But Daniel had other plans. The time that he took me to my dialysis appointments, he did a little secret research on his own. Then he announced his intention to me. “Grandma, I’m giving you one of my kidneys. I’m young and I’m healthy ?” He paused. He could see I wasn’t at all happy with his offer. He continued, almost in whisper, “And most of all, I couldn’t stand it if you weren’t around.” His face wore an expression of appeal mixed with determination. He can be as stubborn as a mule (驴) once he decides on something --- but I’ve been told many times that I can out-stubborn any mule! We argued. I couldn’t let him do it. We both knew that if he gave up his kidney, he would also give up his life’s dream; to play football. It was all he ever talked about. And he was good, too. Daniel was co-captain and star defensive tackle (防 守阻截队员) of his high school team; he expected to apply for a football scholarship and was looking forward to playing college football. He just loved the sport. “How can I let you throw away the thing that means the most to you?” I pleaded with him.
“Grandma,” he said softly, “compared to your life, football means nothing to me.” After that, I couldn’t argue anymore. So we agreed to see if he was a good donor (捐赠者) match, and then we’d discuss it further. When the tests came back, they showed Daniel was a perfect match. That was it. I knew I wasn’t going to win that argument, so we scheduled the transplant. Both surgeries went smoothly. As soon as I came out of the anesthesia (麻醉) , I could tell things were different. I felt great! The nurses in the intensive care unit had to keep telling me to lie back and be quiet --- I wasn’t supposed to be that lively! I was afraid to go to sleep, for fear I would break the spell (魔法) and wake up the way I had been before. But the good feeling didn’t go away, and I spent the evening joking and laughing with anyone who would listen. It was so wonderful to feel alive again. The next day they moved me out of ICU and onto the floor where Daniel was recuperating (复原) three doors away. His grandfather helped him walk down to see me as soon as I was moved into my room. When we saw each other, we did not know what to say. Holding hands, we just sat there and looked at each other for a long time, overwhelmed by the deep feeling of love that connected us. Finally, he spoke, “Was it worthwhile, grandma?” I laughed a little ruefully (懊悔). “It was for me! But was it for you?” I asked him. He nodded and smiled at me. “I’ve got my grandma back.” And I have my life back. It still amazes me. Every morning, when I wake up, I thank God --- and Daniel --- for this miracle. A miracle born of the purest love. 55. Grandma’s diabetes brought about all the following EXCEPT that _______. A. her eyes and her kidneys were affected quite a different person C. Daniel had to be sent back to his father thrown into confusion D. everything was B. grandma became
56. When grandma was at her lowest, what did Daniel do to bring her back to her usual life? A. He tried his best to make her laugh. B. He helped her with the daily chores. C.

She was moved by his selfless decision. B. She wasn’t at all happy with his offer. C. She felt relieved that an appropriate kidney was available. D. She was enthusiastic about having a kidney of someone she loved. 58. What would giving up a kidney mean to Daniel, according to the passage? A. He wouldn’t be young and healthy thereafter. B. He didn’t have to search for a good match any more. C. He could apply for a full scholarship to a college he desired. D. He would also give up his life’s dream: to play football. 59. How was grandma when she came out of the anesthesia after the surgery? A. She was feeling low. life. C. She was exhausted. she had been before. 60.

Much as he loved football, grandma’s life meant the most to Daniel. 第二节：下面文章中有 5 处 （第 61～65） 需要添加小标题。请从（A、B、C、D、E 和 F） 中选出符合各段意思的小标题， 并在答题纸上将相应选项的标号涂黑。 选项中有一项是多余
B. She was full of
D. She was the way
选项。 A. Make sure you match the job description B. Be conscious of good interview manners C. Put your interviewer at ease D. Plan before you pursue E. Dress to make a good first impression F. Do be sincere Attending an interview with the intent to impress the hiring manager is dangerous if you go about it in the wrong way. Below are some things you can do to maximize your chances of getting the job. 61. __________ True, sometimes interviewers aren’t prepared themselves, but that doesn’t mean they’ll forgive you for the same mistake. Developing and following a plan at the beginning of a job search has a significant impact on its success. Research the job thoroughly. Think about how your previous experience qualifies you and how it compares to the work on offer. Set "process goals" to keep you on track toward your larger career goals. "Process goals" aren’t big-picture objectives. They’re "roll up your sleeves and make it happen" objectives. 62. __________ You can’t think of any personal weaknesses, you’ve overcome all your weaknesses, or you say you haven’t given it a lot of thought. Mistakes? Not you. No one progresses in a career without making mistakes and learning from them. Trained interviewers will be looking to see if you readily acknowledge and admit your weaknesses and can describe mistakes you’ve made and what you learned from them. Never give a measured response that sugarcoats reality to a tough interview question about your past. 63. __________ If you were a 6-foot, 5-inch, 250-pound Frenchman with strong arms and a bushy beard, would you apply for the part of Little Orphan Annie on Broadway? How ridiculous that image is. If you don’t have an accurate understanding of what the job is all
about, your opinion of how well-matched you are will be based on an inaccurate foundation. For example, sales professionals are expected to possess excellent communication skills, time management and organization skills. Make sure you have a full job description from the employer so you can match your skills to the job’s requirements. 64. __________ The best way to ensure a good first impression is to dress smart. What is appropriate depends on the particular employer and job but, generally speaking, it is better to dress formally while remaining comfortable. If you are unsure what to wear, you should always go with the most conservative, professional option. What you are wearing tells employers a lot about how serious you are about getting the job. The more confident and polished you appear, the more likely you are to leave the interviewer with a positive impression of you. 65. __________ Learn as much as you can about how the interview will be conducted. Employers are looking for the candidate with the best knowledge and experience, but rarely do they hire for work skills at the expense of social skills. If you lack self-awareness, it shows. And it doesn’t look good. Be on time for your interview. Be aware of your body language. Even in the critical small talk before the interview, make eye contact with your interviewer to convey confidence when you’re speaking, smile when it’s appropriate, and look alert. 卷 III：非选择题（25 分） 第三部分：写作(共两节，满分 50 分) 第一节：阅读下面的短文，在标有序号的空白处填入一个适当的词，或填入括号中所给单词 的正确形式，并将序号及相应的答案写在答题纸上。 （10 分） There were many problems when people first moved into the cities in the US and UK.

After it consumes the last grain of crop, to its horror, it suddenly finds itself trapped in the container. The picture vividly conveys the message that one cannot just focus on the present comfortable life without making preparations for his/her future. We students can certainly learn something from this. Some of us are addicted to video games and don’t take their study seriously. All that they care about is the present ‘happy’ life.
