For the first time he saw himself as he had always wanted to be a full five feet eight inches tall. Hank had been born without legs. Until he was seven, his world was a world of repeated operations. At last he had not legs, but stumps（残肢）that could be fitted with a kind of special boots. Out of the hospital, Hank often found people staring at him with cruel interest. Children laughed at him and called him “Ape Man” because his arms dragged（拖）on the ground. He went to school like other boys. His grades were good and he needed only eight years instead of the usual twelve. After graduation, Hank worked his way through college. He swept floors, waited on table, or worked in one of the college offices. During all this busy life, Hank had been moving around on his stumps. But one day the doctor told him even the stumps were not going to last much longer. Hank would soon have to use a wheel chair. Hank felt himself go cold all over. However, the doctor said there was a chance that he could be fitted with artificial（人造的）legs. Finally a leg maker was found and the day came when Hank stood up before the mirror and saw himself for the first time, five feet eight inches tall. But this was not the end yet. He had to learn to use his new legs. Again and again he marched the length of the room, and marched back again. There were times when he fell down on the floor, but he pulled himself up and went back to the endless marching. He went out on the street. He climbed the stairs and learned to dance. He built a boat and learned to sail it. When World War Ⅱ came, he talked the Red Cross into giving him a job. He took the regular training. He marched and drilled along with the other soldiers. Few knew that he was legless. This was the true story of Hank Viscardi, the man without legs. 5．It can be inferred from the story that five feet eight inches tall is A．an average height for an adult（成人） B．too tall for an average person C．too short for an average person D．none of the above
D．his arms were too long 6．The writer implies in the story that A．the Red Cross was only too glad to give him a job B．the Red Cross gave him a job because he was a good soldier. C．the Red Cross gave him a job after he talked to somebody he knew in the organization D．the Red Cross was not willing to give him a job at first 7．When Hank marched and drilled along with the other soldiers A．he did everything the other soldiers did B．he did most of the things the other soldiers did C．he did some of the things the other soldiers did D．he took some special training C Most Americans believe that someone isn’t grown-up until the age of 26 and they should complete their education, have a full-time job, have a family to support and be financially independent. They also believe that becoming a real grown-up is a process which begins at about the age of 20 and takes about five years, according to the report from the University of Chicago’s National Opinion Research Center. The findings are based on a representative sample of 1,398 people over the age of 18 who were surveyed in person. The survey found that people expect the transitions to grown-up status to be completed at the following ages: age 20.9 self-supporting; age 21.1 no longer living with parents; age 21.2 having a full-time job; age 22.3 education completed; age 24.5 being able to support a family financially; age 25.7 getting married; and age 26.2 having a child. “The re is a large degree of agreement across social groups on the relative importance of the seven transitions,” said Tom Smith, director of the survey. The only obvious pattern of differences is on views about supporting a family, having children and getting married. Older adults consider these more important than younger adults do. This probably shows in large part a change in values across generations away from traditional family values. The most valued step toward reaching adulthood, the survey found, is completing education, followed by ful l-time employment, supporting a family, financial independence, living independently, and marriage. 8. According to the first paragraph, someone is a grown-up when he _______. A. has found a full-time job B. has finished his study in university C. can make money and support himself after completing his education D. can support a family and be financially independent after graduation 9. A young man of 24 may be busy ________. A. finding a job C. making money A. position B. rank B. finding a girl friend D. preparing for his wedding C. level D. situation . .
10. The underlined word “status” in the second paragraph probably means “________”. 11. From the passage, we learn that _________. A. being grown-up is just a matter of age
B. b eing grown-up is a process which takes some time C. all people think completing education means being grown-up D. the survey found e veryone had a different view about being grown-up D "S. H.E. is going to sing at the CCTV annual Spring Festival Evening Party, is that true?" cried out Peng Weiye, a Senior 2 girl in Shanghai and die-hard S. H.E. fan. After checking it on the Internet, Peng quickly phoned friends to spread the news. For fans like her, S. H. E. ’s performance is perhaps the only part of the old fashioned evening to get excited about. The Taiwanese band is made up of Selina, Hebe and Ella. Their name comes from the first letter of each of the singers' English names. Last week S. H. E. announced they would perform in Las Vegas, US, over Christmas and then in Guangzhou on January 15. At their Shanghai show on October 30, hundreds of parents waited outside the Hongkou Stadium. Inside, thousands of teenagers sang, cried and shouted as the band performed. "I love their music, healthy image and everything related to them. Thank God that, although my parents don't understand why I love them so much, they still bought me a ticket for that show," said Peng about the Shanghai performance. It is not just on the mainland that the three girls have made audiences much excited. In the past year the band has passed through Taiwan, Hong Kong and even Singapore and Malaysia. When the three high school girls entered a singing contest in Taiwan in 2000, none of them ever dreamed of being a superstar. "We had never met before, and we didn't talk at all at the beginning," recalled Ella. When asked about the secret of their success, she said, "Our average looks and not-so-expensive clothes keep us close to our fans. We are happy to be the girls next door, your singing sisters." "It's really a magical journey, from day-dreaming high school girls to singers performing on the same stage as our idols(偶像). Nothing but magical," she said. 12. Why was Peng Weiye, a Senior 2 girl, so excited? A. S.H.E. band will get the old fashioned evening exciting. B. S. H.E. will perform in Las Vegas over Christmas. C. Her parents bought her a ticket for S. H. E.’s Shanghai show. D. S. H.E. will perform on the CCTV Spring Festival Evening Party. 13. How did the Taiwanese band get the name? A. Their fans gave the name to them. B. Their idols had a deep influence on them. C. A singing contest gave their idea of the band name. D. The first letters of Selina, Hebe and Ella form the band name. 14. What do you know about Peng Weiye? A. she stayed outside the Hongkou Stadium to listen to S. H. E. 's performance. B. She will watch the performance in Guangzhou on January 15. C. She pays close attention to everything about S. H. E. D. She was grateful that her parents understood and supported her.
15. Which do you think is NOT the reason for S. H. E’s popularity among their fans? A. Their music and their healthy image. B. They can make audience much excited. C. Their success meets their fans’ day dream of becoming others’ idols. D. Their average looks and not-so-expensive clothes keep them close to their fans. 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。
Summer safety tips for children
Summer is a time for having fun in the sun! Children should be able to have fun but they should also be safe. Here are some helpful tips all parents should discuss with their children.
Never talk to strangers
16If someone suspicious (可疑的) that they don’t know c omes up to them, they should immediately either run away if they are alone or go somewhere where there are other people.
Keep cool in the heat
If your children must be outdoors in extreme heat, make sure that activities should be limited to 15 minutes. 17 Remember to ask them to drink some every 20 minutes even if they do not feel thirsty.
For children who cannot swim, they should not go into the deep area of the water. And they should also play at places where there are lifeguards. This way if something were to happen, they would have someone there to help them. 18
19 Remember to ask your children to be careful in the street, sidewalk and even the driveway of your home. They need to be taught never to ride a bike out into the street without first looking for cars, and never into the street from behind a parked car, or from in between two parked cars.

Of course, water is necessary for them. E. Children should never be in a pool alone, anyway. F. The Internet will be an educational tool for children. G.

They think them a fashion to have one ever since it’s very easy to keep in touch with their friends. However, some often takes their mobiles to the classroom. Sometimes we are disturbed by a suddenly ring. What’s bad, some even send messages in class wasted much of their time.
Our class room is what we give all our attention to what we need to learn. The less we are disturbed in class, the better our achievements will be. Therefore, when a lesson is on no mobile phones should be allowed to brought into the classroom.
