B On days when there is work, I talk to the other guys. Some of them tell me that the harvest season is coming in northern California, and they say that one can earn good money there. Things haven’t gone so badly in the car wash, but one afternoon I give the manager my thanks for having hired and promoted me, and with a little suitcase that night I board a Greyhound(美国灰狗长途汽车)headed north. My ticket is made out for San Francisco, but I don’t plan to go that far. I plan to ride until I find a place where people are harvesting, and to get off the bus there. I sleep on the bus for a few hours that night, and in the morning, when I awake, I don’t know where we are. I get up from my seat and walk down the bus aisle(走 廊), looking for a Mexican or Chicano(奇卡诺人) to tell me our location, but strangely enough, I don’t see any among the passengers, who are all white-skinned. I pay attention to the road signs we pass, but they are not of much help. I can read the town names, but I don’t know where the towns lie. A map would help me, and I decide to buy one at our next stop. Lots of things are for sale at the bus stop’s gift shop, but there are no maps. I direct myself towards the shop’s operator, but I run into the language barrier. The operator is an Anglo, and when I speak to him in Spanish, he says that he doesn’t understand. I try to practice my very precarious (不可靠的) English with him, but it’s of no use. I have a rough idea of the sound of the words that I want to say, but I can’t pronounce them right. I make signs, signaling a big piece of paper and say “for California,” but he turns into a question mark, with eyes wide open, arms raised and hands extended. “Map,” I say,
but I don’t pronounce the word very well. “Freeways, streets,” I add, but he still doesn’t understand. He points out chewing gum, candies, pieces of cake, sandwiches, soft drinks, and cigarettes, trying to guess what I’m asking for. But he doesn’t show me any maps. Finally, I back out of the store, and as I leave I hear him say, “I’m sorry.” A little before the bus leaves, I run into a Mexican-American in a hallway and I immediately ask him to help me find a map of California. We go back to the store. The Chicano asks for a map. “Ahh! Ahaaa!” the operator exclaims. Then he goes to a corner of his shelves and takes out what I’ve been asking for. While I am paying him, he talks to the Chicano in a joyful tone. With the map in my hands, I give the Chicano my thanks, and he explains that the store-keeper thinks that I am asking if he needs anybody to clean the floor or “mop.” 58. The writer decides to leave his job and go to northern California because _____. A. his boss doesn’t like him B. things are going badly in the car wash C. he thinks he can earn more money there D. he is tired of his work 59. The writer wants a map in order to _____. A. find the way to San Francisco entire trip C. help him with the road signs D. find his way back to his workplace B. know where he is in relation to the
60. From the passage, we can infer that _____. A. the writer is a migrant (流动的) farm worker B. the writer doesn’t do a good job in the car wash C. the owner of the shop does not want to sell the writer a map D. the writer is traveling with a friend who can speak English 61. The writer tries to make himself understood by all the following EXCEPT _____. A. gestures word C As shocking as the idea of baby birds growing up in a cigarette-filled home sounds, a new study suggests that some birds may benefit from putting the stuff from cigarette butts (烟蒂) into their nests. The nicotine (尼古丁) remaining in smoked filters (滤嘴) may serve as a natural insecticide (杀虫剂), driving harmful insects away from the nests and the baby birds living within. Tobacco plants produce nicotine because it defends against insects that would otherwise eat the plants. B. words or phrases C. pronunciations D. spelling the
The butts are undoubtedly smelly. But birds are actually quite fond of smelly chemicals, such as those found in aromatic (芳香的) plants. Some nest-building species regularly fill their nests with fresh aromatics, possibly because the chemicals are good for the immune system or the development of the chicks. Alternatively, the plant chemicals might act as insecticides. In the study, researchers at the Autonomous University of Tlaxcala in Mexico set up heat traps, which attract harmful insects, in 55 nests around Mexico City. Some traps were lined with the stuff in smoked cigarette filters. The others were lined with the stuff from unsmoked cigarette filters, which did not contain nicotine and other smoking by-products. Whether the nest held eggs, chicks or nothing, the unsmoked cigarette traps collected more harmful insects, suggesting that it is the chemicals that drove harmful insects away. In a second experiment, the researchers collected 28 house sparrow nests and 29 house finch (朱雀) nests from Mexico City immediately after the chicks flew out for food. They found that the more smoked filter stuff filled a nest, the fewer harmful insects it had. The missing piece of the puzzle is whether the reduced number of harmful insects in the nests actually provided any benefit to the chicks. It is also unclear if nicotine or another chemical found in cigarettes may have turned the harmful insects out of the nests. If the results hold, then this study is an example of wildlife adaptation to urbanization – or at least evidence that birds are smart and can still follow their noses in urban environments. 62. What may be the function of nicotine in cigarette butts for birds? A. To drive harmful insects away from bird nests. B. To provide building materials for bird nests. C. To protect the plants from being eaten by insects. D. To attract baby birds to stay in the nests. 63.What is the first experiment aimed at? A. Proving that heat traps attract harmful insects in Mexico City. B. Comparing smoked cigarette filters with unsmoked ones. C. Analyzing what is produced from smoked cigarette filters. D. Studying what it is that drives harmful insects away. 64.Where could you possibly see the passage? A. In a science report C. In a tobacco advertisement B. In an urbanization essay D. In an anti-smoking brochure
D As Rosalie Warren stood at the mailbox in the lobby(门厅) of her apartment building in May 1980, she shared the anxiety of many other college seniors. In her hand was an envelope containing her final grades. As she nervously opened it, Warren wondered whether her hundreds of hours of studying had paid off. They had. “I got five ‘A’s,” she still recalls(回忆) with elation. “I almost fell on the floor!” Warren would graduate from Suffolk University with a bachelor of science degree in philosophy and history at age 80.Three years later, at age 83, she would receive her second degree from Suffolk, a master’s in education. Now, with both diplomas proudly displayed in her apartment, Warren is not finished with learning. Now 93,she continues for her 18th year at Suffolk under a program that allows persons 65 and over to attend classes tuition free. “It’s my life to go to school, to enjoy being in an academic atmosphere,” she says. “That’s what I love.” Warren was born Rosalie Levey on Aug.29, 1900. Two years after she entered high school, her father died. Warren had to leave school for factory work to help support her family’s 10 children. Warren describes herself as a “person who always liked school,” and she says the move “broke my heart completely because I couldn’t finish high school.” In the end, however, “I went to school nights,” she recalls. “Any place I could find an outlet of learning and teaching, I was there.” A short time later, her mother became ill, and Warren had to care for her, once again putting her education on hold. Finally, in 1921, her mother, now recovered, drew from her saving to send Warren to Boston University for two years to study typing, stenography(速记), and office procedures. Those courses helped Warren gain several long-term office positions over the next 60 years, but her great desire “to be in the academic field” continued. In 1924, she married Eugene Warren, and seven years later, her daughter, Corinne, was born. In 1955, by then a widow and a grandmother, Warren took a bus tour across the United States that was to last nine months. She said she wanted to see “things you never see in the West End.” When she returned home, she took a bookkeeping position and also enrolled in courses in philosophy, sociology and Chinese history.
In 1975, when she was 75, Warren learned from a neighbor about Suffolk University’s tuition- free program for senior citizens.” I was at the registrar’s office the very next day,” she recalls. At first, she took one or two courses at a time, but encouraged by her professors, she enrolled as a degree candidate. “I had not studied for so many years,” she says, “but I was determined.” For the next four years, Warren, who calls herself a “student of philosophy,” worked toward her degree. Nancy Stoll, dean of students at Suffolk, says Warren is “an interesting role model for our younger students---that learning is a lifetime activity?.She is really enthusiastic about being here, and that permeates (散发) her activities and is contagious (传染的) to students and teachers.” 65. What does the word elation mean in the sentence “I got fives ‘A’s”, she still recalls with elation”? A. Great happiness B. Great surprise C. Great pleasure D. Great honor
66. How old was Warren when she got her first college degree? A. She was 79 B. She was 23 C. She was 80 D. She was 75
67. What kind of work did she do for 60 years? A. Studying B. Factory work C. Typing D. Office work
68. Which statement can be inferred from the underlined sentences? A. Because Warren needn’t pay her tuition, she went to study at Suffolk University B. At first Warren had to pay for her courses at Suffolk University C. Most of the students at Suffolk University are older than 65 D. Suffolk University encourages older people to take courses 69. It can be inferred from this passage that Rosalie Warren _______. A. came from a wealthy family C. much 70. What is the main topic of this passage? A. Rosalie Warren’s family C. Rosalie Warren’s education University B. Rosalie Warren’s life D. Rosalie Warren’s studying at Suffolk didn’t like working in an office B. put her family before her education D. didn’t like her family very

认真阅读下列短文，并根据所读内容在文章后表格中的空格里填入最恰当的单词。注意：每 空格只填一个单词。 Have you ever wondered: What drives successful people? Take a look around and talk to your friends and seniors who are very successful, you will see all of them have adopted certain values which have proved vital for their success. It is evident that successful people take initiative (主动性). When they find something needs to be done, they just do it instead of waiting. They believe that responsibility is taken, not given. They weigh immediately what has to be done and then do it with pleasure, thus strengthening their reputation. Successful people are enthusiastic about the things they do, especially when they believe in what they are doing. They are motivated by their own satisfaction and the joy they get from doing their work. They work hard even when no one is watching and they throw themselves into their work. They do not fear failure. Failures and disappointments in life are unavoidable. It is failure that teaches us much more than success. Successful people pick themselves up after a fall and try again with more determination and commitment and learn from each failure. They associate with those they can learn from and enjoy the company of those who appreciate their achievement. Having good IQ often gets a person what he wants but it’s really the EQ that keeps him there and helps him enjoy a high reputation. Successful people are polite to everyone and treat others with respect. By giving respect to others, they command respect for themselves. Another important quality of successful persons is that they never complain. It’s better to praise others and win favor with them. So instead of complaining about a situation, successful people always try to solve it. To put it shortly, take initiative and be enthusiastic about them. Do not be afraid to fail, but get up and start again. When you do so, success will be just around the corner.

But nowadays people tend to be very cautious of helping strangers. Recently our class had a discussion about whether we should help strangers. Opinions are divided on this topic. Some think we should try to help others whether they are strangers or not. Helping others is a virtue, and it will make our society more harmonious. Besides, to some extent, helping others is helping oneself. We may come across some trouble and need others' help some day. If everyone turns a blind eye to our trouble and turns a deaf ear to our appeal for aid just because we are strangers to them, it’s hard to imagine what our world will be like. However, others are afraid that helping others can sometimes bring us trouble or even put us in danger. Sometimes we are just misunderstood and thus have to pay the cost of kindness. In my opinion, we should try our best to help others when they are in need of help, but we should also protect ourselves to avoid getting into trouble. Only if everyone tries a little kindness, will society be full of love and trust be established between people.
