Once when we were sitting at the 36 of a swimming pool by reminiscing(回忆) the past, she filled her 37 with some water and held it before me, saying, “ You see this water carefully 38 on my hand? It symbolizes love.” This was how I 39 it: As long as you keep your hand open and allow it to remain there, it will always be there. However, if you try to 40 your hand and try to possess(占有，控制) it, it will run out through the fingers. This is the greatest 41 that sometimes people make when they meet love? they try to possess it, they 42 ?and just like the water running out of your hand, love will leave you. For love is meant to be free, you cannot change its 43 ．If there are people you love, allow them to be free. Give and don’t expect. Advise, but don’t order. Ask, but 44 demand. It might sound 45 , but it’s a lesson that may take a lifetime to truly practice. It is the secret of true love, in which I’m barely 46 it! Well it is just a piece of advice but it helps a lot. To truly practice it, you must sincerely feel no expectations from those you 47 , and yet an unconditional caring. 36．A．bottom B．entrance C．edge D．gate 37．A．stomach B．big C．pocket D．hand 38．A．used B．stayed C．moved D．watched 39．A．saw B．received C．offered D．discovered 40．A．raise B．close C．wave D．shake 41．A．mistake B．honor C．success D．price 42．A．check B．borrow C．give D．demand 43．A．nature B．quantity C．value D．size 44．A．often B．sometimes C．always D．never 45．A．difficult B．simple C．safe D．exact 46．A．practicing B．hiding C．losing D．reading 47．A．respect B．invite C．notice D．love B Women make better drivers than men for many reasons. If you ask me, I’d like to say, men know that women are better drivers but do not have the 48 to admit the truth. Unlike men, women stop for 49 when they have no idea where they are going. Women don’t drive around for hours pointlessly(漫无目标地) wastin g a tank of 50 only to find themselves heading in the 51 direction. Have you ever been in a car with a man who is lost? He tells you to 52 when you begin to open your mouth. And every five minutes or so he takes a turn going forty-five miles per hour only to find out he’s made 53 incorrect turn.
Speeding is what men do best. But traffic is not a race. Men get 54 speeding tickets than women. Not because women trick to get out of tickets but only because they don’t speed. Women don’t risk putting lives in danger. 55 , they have more responsibility for life. 48. A. courage 49. A. conditions 50. A. enthusiasm 51. A. proper 52. A. make up 53. A. all 54. A. more 55. A.

第三部分：阅读理解（共 20 小题；每小题 2 分，满分 40 分） 请阅读下列短文，从每题所给的四个选项（A, B, C 和 D）中，选出最佳选项，并在答题卡 上将该选项的标号涂黑。 A My friend Gayle has been “living” with cancer for four years and it is progressively(日益地) getting worse. During a conversation with another friend, Gayle expressed that one of her childhood wishes was to have a red Radio Flyer wagon. As a child she never received one because she believed that if you told your birthday wish it wouldn’t come true. I was at an ice cream stand one day and in the window was a miniature red Radio Flyer wagon that could be won in a weekly drawing. Every time you make a purchase you could fill out a ticket for a chance to win. After several weeks and many ice cream cones(锥 体), I didn’t win. I got up the courage to ask the person in charge if I could buy one. I went to the window and as I began to tell my story, I could feel my throat tighten and my eyes overflowed with tears. Somehow I managed to explain my reason for wanting to purchase the wagon, and after writing a check(支票), I left carrying it. The wagon was delivered the next day, and for Gayle her dream came true. The following day I received a letter that read: Dear Bonnie, Every once in a while there is an opportunity to pass on a kindness – no questions asked. I lost my parents to cancer six months apart from each other. I cared for both of them but could not have done it without the love and generosity of friends – friends who care. The best to you. Norma It was from the owner of the ice cream stand. Inside it was my uncashed check. 56. Gayle didn’t receive a Radio Flyer wagon before because________. A. she didn’t like it at all. B. she was suffering from cancer. C. she never told her wish to anybody. D. her parents couldn’t afford one. 57. What does the underlined word “it” in Paragraph 2 refer to?
A. The check. B. The wagon. C. The ice cream. D. The letter. 58. We can infer from the passage that________. A. Norma didn’t charge money from Bonnie for the wagon. B. Norma’s parents have a lot of money. C. Bonnie gave Gayle a lot of ice cream cones. D. Bonnie paid for the wagon by cash. 59. Which word can best describe Norma? A. Cold. B. Cautious. C. Generous. D. Proud. B The composing career (作曲生涯) of Albert Roussel got off to a changeable start, and received one of its biggest successes from a lie. Roussel became an orphan ( 孤儿 ) at the age of eight and went to live with his grandfather. He built on the music he had learned from his mother, entertaining himself by reading through the family music collection and playing operatic selections and popular songs on the piano. Three years later Roussel’s grandfather died, and his mother's sister took him in. Her husband arranged for young Albert to take piano lessons. Summer vacations at a Belgian seaside added a second love to his life — the sea. He studied to be a soldier in the navy, but still made time to study music. In the French Navy, he and two friends found time to play the music of Beethoven and other composers. Roussel also began composing. At the Church of the Trinity in Cherbourg on Christmas Day 1892, he had his first public appearance as a composer. That success encouraged Roussel to write a wedding march, and one of his fellow naval officers offered to show it to a famous conductor, Edouard Colonne. When Roussel’s friend returned with the manuscript (手稿), he reported that Colonne had advised Roussel to give up his naval career and devote his life to music. Not long afterward, at the age of 25, Roussel did just that. He applied the qualities that he had developed in the navy to his composing and became a major force in twentieth century French music. As for Edouard Colonne’s inspiring advice that Roussel should devote his life to music, Roussel's naval friend later admitted that he had made it up and that he had never even shown Roussel’s manuscript to the conductor. 60. What information can we get from the second paragraph? A. Albert’s grandfather died when Albert was eight years old. B. Albert's aunt arranged for him to take piano lessons. C. Albert gave up studying music after he studied to be a soldier in the navy. D. Albert came to love the sea after summer vacations at the seaside. 61. From the third paragraph we know that ______. A. In the French Navy, Roussel and two friend began composing. B. Roussel’s first public appearance at the church was successful. C. Roussel showed the wedding march to Edouard. D. Edouard Colonne advised Roussel to devote his life to naval career.
62. Which of the following is true according to the text? A. The composing career of Roussel started stably. B. Roussel learned basic music knowledge from his aunt. C. A white lie helped Roussel achieve success. D. Roussel was cheated and hurt by his naval friend. 63. Who told a lie according to the text? A. Roussel’s grandfather. B. Albert’s naval friend. C. Roussel's aunt. D. Edouard Colonne.

D Picture the scene: the battery on your mobile phone has run out. You can’t make any calls for help and no one can contact you. You are all alone---well, not quite. Just reach into your pocket and take out a piece of sugar. Put it into the battery, wait a minute and you’re back on the phone. Thanks to a couple of American scientists, this situation could become real. Swadesh Chaudhuri and Derek Lovley have invented the “bacteria battery”---powered by bacteria that eat sugar and turn it into electricity. “This is a special organism,” Lovley said. “You can harvest enough electricity to power a cell phone battery for about four days from a spoonful of sugar.” In the past, bacteria batteries have been expensive and not long-lasting. But this battery uses more efficient bacteria that can turn 80 percent of sugar into electricity energy. This is 30 percent more than similar batteries can manage. The bacteria battery could become as small as a household battery. It’s also cheap and stable, as sugar can be taken from waste and crops. But the sugar to electricity process is slow: it could take weeks for the bacteria to digest a cup of sugar. And it produces “greenhouse” gases which pollute the environment. The scientists understand there is a lot more work to be done. “It is still young,” said Lovley. “Where we are now is where solar power was 20 or 30 years ago.” But he believes the battery could be used in scientific equipment at the bottom of the ocean. Other ideas include using sugar in the blood to run medical devices in the human body, and taking sugar from animal waste to provide energy to power homes in rural(乡村的) areas. 68. Which of the following is NOT the strong point of the newly-developed battery? A. Convenient. B. Stable. C. Inexpensive. D. Quick. 69. The underlined sentence in the fifth paragraph actually means________. A. the bacteria battery shares some similarities with solar energy. B. scientists will continue their work until they find solar energy. C. there is much room for the improvement of the bacteria battery. D. the bacteria battery will get popular in 20 or 30 years. 70. According to the passage, who will find the bacteria battery less useful? A. Farmers. B. Divers. C. Doctors. D. Electricians. 71. This passage is mainly about________. A. how to change sugar into electricity. B. a scientific invention of a new kind of bacteria battery. C. a new way to reduce pollution caused by mobile phones. D. a new kind of mobile phones and its future. E There has been much discussion recently about reducing the weight of English in China's high-stake tests such as the national college entrance examination. It is argued by some people who are in favor of the change to reduce the importance of English in tests so that it will lead students to focus more on learning Chinese. Maybe that’s because the TV program Writing in Chinese has exposed the problem that
students and the general public cannot write in Chinese as they used to do. Some blame the design of the curriculum (课程) for giving English an equal emphasis, which might have contributed to the failure in teaching Chinese. But this is probably not a fair charge because children in English speaking countries cannot spell either. In fact, high achievers in English or another foreign language are more likely to be high achievers in Chinese. It has been proved many times in recent Chinese history that those capable of using a foreign language are also masters in their mother tongue. Qian Zhongshu, Lu Xun and Lin Yutang are just a few examples. Another trend of thought for curriculum reform( 课程改革 )is related to the viewpoint of “worth”. It is true that English is one of the subjects that students do spend too much time on, with pitiful results. This makes some doubt if it is worth giving it priority. But this is not a reasonable argument either, as students still need to study things that matter more to their future job prospects(前景). From my perspective, improvements in Chinese language education should not be achieved by sacrificing(牺牲) another important subject. There should be a healthy foreign language education program. Attacking English education as a waste of time or using it as a goat(替罪羊) for failures in Chinese education are both harmful trends. To be constructive, we ought to start a dialogue on ways to make improvements in learning outcomes so that students’ time learning English is spent more effectively. There are a few things that could improve English education, such as assessment design, learner motivation and teaching style. I am sure there are many other areas where changes can greatly improve the effectiveness and efficiency of English learning, which may benefit the teaching of other subjects as well, Chinese included. 72. In paragraph 3 Qian Zhongshu, Lu Xun and Lin Yutang are mentioned to _____. A. show respect for their capabilities of learning languages. B. prove English and Chinese are not contrary. C. prove the importance of learning English in China. D. tell the readers English Education is to blame. 73. According to the passage, which of the following statements is RIGHT? A. The TV program Writing in Chinese is very popular at present. B. Good results of learning English are not worth so much time. C. Some are in favor of attaching less importance to English in exams. D. Sacrificing English can improve Chinese language education. 74. In the writer’s opinion, what should be done to solve the argument? A. Increasing time spent in learning Chinese. B. Increasing time spent in learning English. C. Reducing the weight of English in examinations. D. Improving the learning outcomes effectively. 75. Which of the following can best serve as the title of the passage? A. English education is still important in China. B. Chinese education is more important in China.
C. English contributes to the failure in teaching Chinese. D. Ways to make improvements in learning Chinese. 第二卷 非选择题 （共 35 分） 写作一（满分 15 分） 请根据以下提示，并结合事例，用英语写一篇短文。 There is no such thing as a free lunch.

people. As the old saying goes, “no pains, no gains.” I failed in the last exam. So discouraged was I that I didn’t want to do anything. I didn’t do exercises and even didn’t attend to what the teacher said in the classes. Later on, I found things got worse. Only then did I realize I was wrong and that success will not wait for me. So I made the best of every minute to catch up with my classmates. Now I’m progressing in my studies. I feel confident that my effort will pay off eventually. My story makes me believe failure is temporary for a diligent person but permanent for the lazy. One’s effort will surely be rewarded with success, no matter how big or small the success is. 写作二 One possible version: As senior students, we are often under pressure. With too much study pressure, many of us don’t pay any attention to our physical and mental health. What results in it? Firstly, many students haven’t developed health eating habits. It’s common for them to have no breakfast or eat too much snacks. Besides, buried in their lessons, they are lacking in necessary exercise. What’s the worst is that some students don’t like talking with others face to face, which leads to their lack of communication. As a result, they are in so poor condition that they can’t concentrate on their study, thus making it ineffective. It’s well known that health is of great importance. From my point of view, we’d better take some exercise, visit some friends and have a balanced diet. Only when we are healthy can we study and enjoy our life better.
