To give information about a kind of medicine. B He is a lesson to every boy who ever picked up a basketball and dreamed that it would change his life. The lights were never brighter and the crowds were never bigger for a homegrown sports hero than they were a quarter-century ago for Ray Hall. But his athletic achievements, as impressive as they are, are to my mind not what is most admirable about the man. Known as ―Sugar Ray‖ in his teens, Hall was rated among the country’s top 25 high school basketball players. An inner-city kid from a solid family, Hall took on the challenge of lifting Canisius College—still recovering from its failure—back to respectability, rejecting more favorable offers. His status of a savior (救世主) brought more pressure than any 18-year-old should have to handle, however, I watched him matured into the player who led Canisius back to daylight. After college Hall played professionally in Italy and Greece for over 10 years until a car accident at 32 ended his basketball career. The news that he would never play again shocked Hall, but unlike so many others he was ready for life after basketball. When I met Hall—still fit at 46—for lunch on Monday, he wore a cut-sharp gray suit, designer tie and blazing white shirt that suggested success. ―That was always the question—when the cheers end, where do you go? Who do you turn to?‖ he said. ―It starts and ends with that person in the mirror.‖ Hall got the concept of academics-first from his parents. He graduated from Canisius a semester early. ―No matter what a good athlete you are, you are just one injury away from losing it all,‖ he said. ―But if you take care of things academically, you are prepared until you leave this earth.‖ For the past 14 years, he has been in a computer sales job at Ingram Micro. He married his college sweetheart. They have three kids and a nice house in the suburbs. He figured out early what others learn too late: Athletics is part of a journey, not the destination. Congratulations, Ray, you made it. In more ways than one. 51. Ray was regarded as a savior because ______. A. he liked to take on challenges B. he helped his team to regain its glory C. he was faithful to his hometown city D. he fought hard against failure at a young age
52. According to the writer, which of the following best describes Ray’s success? A. Unlike other athletes, he was academically superior. B. He defeated his injury and returned to the playground. C. He enjoys a successful job and a happy family. D. He has gained impressive athletic achievements. 53. What’s the right order of the events related to Ray? a. He was ranked among the best high school basketball players. b. He was in a car accident. c. He graduated from Canisius College. d. He started his computer sales job. e. He gave up his athletic career. A. a,c,b,e,d B. a,c,e,b,d C. c,a,b,d,e D. c,a,e,b,d 54. The underlined word ―rated‖ in Paragraph 3 refers to________. A. considered B. related C. valued D. compared 55. We can learn from the passage that ______. A. Ray was from an academic family B. Ray was very mature in his teens C. Ray was once desperate facing the cruel reality D. athletics was not Ray’s final goal in life C Normally a student must attend a certain number of courses in order to graduate, and each course that he attends gives him a credit that he may count towards a degree. In many American universities the total work for a degree consists of thirty-six courses each lasting for one semester. A typical course consists of three classes per week for fifteen weeks; while attending a university a student will probably attend four or five courses during each semester. Normally a student would expect to take four years attending two semesters each year. It is possible for a student to move between one university and another during his degree course, though this is not in fact done as a regular practice. For every course that he follows a student is given a grade, which is recorded, and the record is available for the student to show to prospective employers. All this gives a constant pressure and difficulty of work, but in spite of this some students still find time for a great activity in student affairs. Elections to positions in student organizations arouse much enthusiasm. Students who advise the academic authorities usually perform the effective work of maintaining discipline. Any student, who is thought to have broken the rules, for example by cheating, has to appear before a student court. With the enormous numbers of students, the operation of system does involve a certain amount of activity. A student who has held one of these positions of authority is much respected and it will be of benefit to him later in his career. 56．Normally a student would at least attend _____classes each week.
A．12 B．15 C．20 D．36 57．According to the first paragraph an American student is allowed _______.

A．dealing with the academic affairs of the university B．keeping up the students’ enthusiasm for social activities C．ensuring that the students observe university regulations D．evaluating students’ performance by bringing them before a court 60． Some students are enthusiastic for positions in student organizations probably because _____ A．they hate the constant pressure and difficulty of their study B．they will then be able to stay longer in the university C．such positions help them get better jobs D．such positions are usually well paid 阅读表达： （共 10 小题，每小题 1 分，满分 10 分）每个空格只填一个单词.（请把 答案写在表格下面指定的位置上。写在表格内不给分。 ） If we agree that the function of education is to prepare us for life, then there is very little time to waste. So, while we can, we ought to concentrate on teaching children something really useful. Here is what our schools should teach. Politeness is a mark of civilization. The sooner children learn this, the better. In any case, a lot can be accomplished by a smile and good manners. Like it or not, our adult lives will be consumed by the struggle for money, but we don’t make an effort to teach children how to manage it. So our schools have a duty to teach them this ability from the beginning. We’re likely to accept something we are told, but that’s not what educated people do. Educated people are reasonable and they look at facts. If our schools teach nothing else, they should at least teach critical（批判性的）thinking. Children should learn to take care of their health. They should know that if they eat junk food（垃圾食品）, they will become fat and unhealthy. They should be very clear about what happens to their bodies when they drink or smoke.
All of us are part of society. We have rights and responsibilities. We ought to 书面表达：15 分 understand what they are.
