A true friend is someone who stays with you for life.” 11 teaches that he was right. Good friendship is just not easily 12 . It is possible that we simply do not stay in one place long enough for 13 friendship to 14 . However, there can be 15 disagreement on the need for each of us to think carefully about the kind of friendship we want. To most of us, friendships are considered very important, but we need to have clear in our 16 the kinds of friendship we want. Are they to be close or 17 at arm's length? Do we want to 18 ourselves or do we want to walk on the surface? For some people, many friendships on the surface are 19 enough—and that' s all right. But at some point we need to 20 that our expectations are the same as our friends' expectations. The sharing of personal experience including our tears as well as our dark dreams is the surest way to deepen friendships.

We may look at the world around us, but somehow we manage not to see it until whatever we?ve become used to suddenly disappears. 21 , for example, the neatly-dressed woman I 22 to see--or look at--on my way to work each morning. For three years, no matter 23 the weather was like, she was always waiting at the bus stop around 8:00 am. On 24 days, she wore heavy clothes and a pair of woolen gloves. Sometimes 25 out neat, belted cotton dresses and a hat pulled low over her sunglasses. 26 , she was an ordinary working woman. Of course, I 27 all this only after she was seen no more. It was then that I realized how 28 I expected to see her each morning. You might say I 29 her. “Did she have an accident? Something 30 ?” I thought to myself about her 31 . Now that she was gone, I felt I had 32 her. I began to realize that part of our 33 life probably includes such chance meetings with familiar 34 : the milkman you see at dawn, the woman who 35 walks her dog along the street every morning, the twin brothers you see at the library. Such people are 36 markers in our lives. They add weight to our 37 of place and belonging.

第二部分 阅读理解（共 25 小题：每小题 2 分，满分 50 分） 阅读下列短文，从每题所给的四个选项（A,B,C,D）中，选出最终选项 A I came to study in the United States a year ago. Yet I did not know the real American society until I was injured in a car accident because after the accident I had to see a doctor—and go to court(法庭). After the accident, my roommate called a doctor for me. I was very grateful and determined to repay him one day. But the next day, he asked me to pay him $ 200 for what he had done. I was astonished. He had good reason to charge me, he said. And if I wanted to collect money from the person who was responsible for my injury, I'd have to have a good lawyer. And only a good doctor can help me get a good lawyer. Now that he had helped me find a good doctor, it was only fair that I should pay him. But every time I went to see the doctor, I had to wait about 50 minutes. He would see two or three patients at the same time, and often stop treating one so as to see another. Yet he charged me $ 115 each time. The final examination report consisted of ten lines, and it cost me $ 215. My lawyer was at all smiles the first time we met. But after that he avoided seeing me at all. He knew very well the other party was responsible for the accident, yet he hardly did anything. He simply waited to collect his money. He was so irresponsible that I decided to dismiss(解雇) him. And he made mepay him $ 770. Now I had to act as wn lawyer. Due to my inexperience,I told the insurance company the date I was leaving America. Knowing that, they played for time,… and I left without getting a cent. My experiences taught me two things about America:firstly,in a country like America money is everything. It is more important than friendship,honour or professional morality(职业道德). Secondly, foreigners are still being unfairly treated. So when we talk about America, we should see both its good and bad sides. 41.The author's roommate offered to help him because_________ . A. he felt sorry for the author. B. he knew the doctor was a very good one. C.he thought it was a chance to make some money. D. he wanted the author to have a good lawyer. 42.A good lawyer is essential for the author to ________. A. be properly treated B. eventually get the responsible party to pay for his injury C. recover before he leaves America D. talk with the person responsible for the accident 43.The word “charge” in this passage means________. A. be responsible B. ask as a price C. accuse D. claim 44.Both the doctor and the lawyer in this passage are very ________. A. friendly B. busy C. professional D. greedy 45. What conclusion can you draw from the story? A. Going to court is something very common in America. B. One must be very careful while driving a car. C. There are more disadvantages in America than advantages.
D. Money is more important than other things in the US. B When I was a little girl,I was foolish enough to believe everything adults said.Even I was scared to death by a word my mother said. It all started when my elder brother came home with a heavy bag of cherries (樱桃）a friend gave him.In order to spend a pleasant afternoon,my sister suggested we have a competition to see who could eat the most cherries in as short a time as possible and be the winner.We all jumped at her idea,and the competition began in no time.Our action had to be fast and we must know how to bite in the middle of the cherry to chew and spit the seed out losing no time.I realized that this wasn?t a good game to play.And I suddenly found that I have swalowed more than one seed down to my stomach.Then mother came and laughed and said to me,“tonight when you sleep,a cherry tree will grow out from your head.”I was jittery and scared.I believed every word she said at that age.I was rather frightened that night thinking how I was going to make it to school the next morning if I had a tree on top of my head or how I would leave this world just like that because of the cherry seeds in my stomach.I couldn?t sleep the whole night. Well,the next morning,I woke up to my surprise,and discovered nothing had changed.My head was normal as it was.But one thing remains unchanged until this day.My love for cherries stay forever. 46.Why did they start the cherry eating competition? A.Because they wanted to challenge their friends. B.Because their mother asked them to do that. C.Because they just wanted to please their brothers. D.Because they wanted to have a happy afternoon. 47.The underlined word“jittery”(part2)probably means“ ” A.pleased B.nervous C.lucky D.disappointed 48.From the mother?s words we can learn that A.She didn?t know what to do. B.She wanted to help the writer. C.She was just joking. D.She was too strict with her children. 49.Why did the writer believe her mother?s words? A.Because her mother asked her to do that. B.Because her brother had the similar experience before. C.Because she was too young at that time. D.Because she wanted to have a good relationship with her mother. 50.In this passage the writer wants to . A.tell an interesting story of her childhood B.show her anger to her mother C.show the reason why she hates the fruit D.Introduce a kind of fruit to readers C Nodira, 18, lives in the Tashkent region of Uzbekistan. She was born with a rare disease and is now paralyzed(瘫痪) from the waist down. Her life is confined to a wheelchair but her dreams know no such boundaries. Her hopes for the future include attending university, riding in her father?s car and being able to walk like other children. Nodira, which means ?unique? in Uzbek, is one of five children in a poor family. Every morning, after reciting her prayers, Nodira feeds the hens and goats from her wheelchair. The rest of her day is spent knitting for other people and helping her mother with the household chores.
Nodira has never been to school because it is too far from her home and inaccessible for her wheelchair. A local teacher used to come and tutor her at home and, as a result, she was able to finish third grade. After that, her parents moved to another town and the tutor could not visit as much. Despite the many difficulties in Nodira?s life she is lucky to be living with her family. The stigma(羞 辱) attached to the children living with disabilities, combined with the lack of wheelchair access in schools and the economic difficulties faced by many Uzbek families, have led many parents to place children with disabilities in special institutions. These days, Nodira does homework exercises at home and reads as much as she can. Still, it is unlikely that she will be able to finish her primary education, much less attend university. While missing out on an education is a great disappointment to Nodira, her greatest wish, for a true friend, can still come true. “What I want more than anything is a friend who also has a disability,” she says. “Somebody will not feel sorry for me or make fun of me, and will understand what my life is like.” 51.The underlined sentence in the first paragraph probably means “_____”. A. her dreams will help her desert her wheel chair B. she often dreams of moving freely without a wheel chair C. her dreams are never limited by her disability D. she never dreams of recovering from her disability 52.Nodira does all the following every day EXCEPT _____. A. give food to some animals B. drive cars designed for the disabled C. to make clothes from woolen or cotton thread D. help with the housework 53.The underlined word “tutor” in the 3rd paragraph can be replaced by “_____”. A. educate B. visit C. treat D. comfort 54.What Nodira wants most is ______. A. to go to university B. to find a true friend C. to finish her primary education D. to walk on her own feet 55. It can be inferred that _______. A. Nodira never feels lonely,living with her family B. Nodira learns very fast and is satisfied with her progress C. Many disabled children like Nodira leave their parents D. Disabled children never feel looked down upon in Uzbeistan. D It seems that great artists and scientists often suffer from mental problems. Both Einstein and Dickens had mental illness. Now scientists have started to look at whether mental illness and genius are linked. Dr Adele Juda studied 5,000 creative people in Germany. She found there were more people with mental illness in this group than in the general population. Poets had the highest rate of mental illness, followed by musicians, with lower numbers for painters and architects. Other scientists did research which also showed a strong link between mental problems and creativity. But, it did nothing to explain it. Dr Ruth Richards of Harvard University made a breakthrough. Instead of studying creative people, she took a group of psychiatric (精神病的) patients and tested them for creativity. The patients got much higher scores than a normal group.
Also, the patients? close relatives were much more creative than the patients and a normal group. This suggests that the key to the link between creativity and mental illness is in our genes (基因). But this is a problem. According to Darwinism, harmful genes should be removed. Some scientists believe that evolution (进化) has created a balance, where the madness of a few people leads to the development of the whole human race. Geniuses(天才人物) may be mad, bad or just difficult to understand, but their discoveries have improved the world we live in. It seems that a little creative madness is good for us all. 56. Which of the following statements is NOT true? A. Psychiatric patients make greater contributions than common people. B. There is a strong link between mental problems and creativity. C.Among the 5,000 creative people in Germany, more people suffer from mental diseases than the general population. D. The key to the link between creativity and mental illness is in our genes. 57. What is the writer?s attitude toward madness? A. Madness is harmful to the whole society. B. All the talented people are mad. C. A little creative madness is good for us all. D. Only the people with mental illness have more creativity. 58. Based on the research of Dr Ruth Richards of Harvard University, we can conclude that ______ A. great artists and scientists often suffer from mental problems B. the patients? close relatives were much more creative than the patients and a normal group C. psychiatric patients have more creativity than the average people D. it is our genes that determine the link between creativity and mental illness 59. According to Dr Adele Juda, which of the following has the lowest rate of mental illness? A. Painters B. Bus drivers C. Poets D. Musicians 68. The underlined phrase “make a breakthrough” in the 4th paragraph means “ ___________ ”. A. discover or find something new and important. B. make a way through using force. C. (of the sun or moon ) appear from behind (clouds). D. suddenly change (from a slower to a faster pace) E There has been a dramatic increase in the number of natural disasters over the past few years，and it is assumed that global warming and climate change could cause even more disasters in the future．Some of the world?s leading cities are facing disasters like floods and heat waves． London London?s flood defenses are getting older． Since 1 982， the Thames Barrier(水闸)has protected the city from the threat of flooding，but it was only designed to last until 2030 and close once every two or three years．About 26 years later the barrier now closes five or six times a year and according to Environment Agency predictions，by 2050 the barrier will be closed on almost every tide if the problem is not addressed． There are 26 underground stations，400 schools，1 6 hospitals，an airport and 80 billion worth of property in London?s flood risk area, so large scale flooding would be disastrous． Paris
Over a six week period in July and August 2003， more than 1 1,400---mainly elderly people―died in France from dehydration(脱水)and extremely high body temperature in a deadly heat wave．Heat waves of similar intensity(强度)are expected every seven years by 2050，so what can be done to make sure such a disaster does not happen again? One solution is to have air-conditioners installed in elderly care homes．But this is considered a short-term solution，as the increase in demand for electricity also increases carbon emissions(排放)． In Paris the local authorities are encouraging architects to design new types of buildings such as the building“Flower Tower,”which uses a covering．of bamboo to act as a natural air-conditioner． Shanghai Shanghai is the fastest growing city on Earth．It has a population of 1 8 million and is only 4 meters above sea level．Sea levels are predicted to rise by 20 cm within the next century． An estimated 250， 000 people move to Shanghai every year in search of work, placing extra demands on energy consumption．China relies heavily on coal―fired power stations，but these emissions increase temperatures and，in turn，warmer seas increase the risk of typhoons． 61．Which of the following would be the best title for the passage? A．Big Disasters in the Future B．The Increase of Natural Disasters C．Big Cities Facing Big Disasters D．Solutions to Natural Disasters 62．What problem should be settled now in London? A．How to protect the city?s property． B．How to improve the function of the old flood defences C．Where to build its flood defences． D．How to use the Thames Barrier to protect the city． 63．Which of the following measures can?t solve the heat wave disaster in Paris? A．Putting up new types of buildings with a covering of bamboo． B．Forbidding the city to build“Flower Tower” C．Encouraging architects to design new types of buildings． D．Having air-conditioners installed in elderly care homes． 64．The major threats to Shanghai are ． A．increasing population and coal-fired power stations B．rising sea levels and typhoons C．extremely high temperature and rising sea levels D．extra demands on energy consumption and typhoons 65．The purpose of the passage is ． A．to tell us how to protect the big cities B．to give advice on how to defend natural disasters C．to warn us of the increasing natural disasters in big cities D．to explain what causes flood and heat waves
