The ambitious attempt to compare happiness levels around the world is based on the principle that wealth is not the only measure of human satisfaction and well-being. The index(指数) of 111 countries uses data on incomes, health, unemployment, climate, political stability, job security, sexual equality as well as what the magazine calls "freedom, family and community life". Despite the bad weather, troubled health service, traffic jam, sexual inequality and the high cost of living, Ireland scored an impressive 8.33 points out of 10. That put it well ahead of second-place Switzerland, which managed 8.07. Zimbabwe, troubled by political insecurity and hunger, is rated the worst, picking up only 3.89 points. "Although rising incomes and increased individual choices are highly valued," the report said," some of the factors connected with modernization such as the breakdown in traditional institutions and family values partly weaken the positive result." " Ireland wins because it successfully combines the most desirable elements of the new with the preservation (保留) of certain warm elements of the old, such as stable family and community life. No.2 on the list is Switzerland. The other nations in the top 10 are Norway, Luxembourg, Sweden, Australia, Iceland, Italy, Denmark and Spain. The US, which has the second highest per capita GDP (国内生 产总值) after Luxembourg, took the 13th place in the survey. China was in the lower half of the league at 60th. 56. According to the passage, an Irish man may feel happy because of the country's economic development as well as ______. A. the traffic condition B. the cost of living C. the health service D. the preservation of traditional values 57. It is implied in the passage that _______. A. the richer a country is, the happier its people may feel B. the poorer a country is, the happier its people may feel C. people may feel happier in a country best combining the new and the old D. traditional values are the main concern of most people in terms of happiness 58. Zimbabwe lost its points because of ______. A. its extreme poverty B. its breakdown of traditional family values C. its so, ere hot weather D. its lack of food and political insecurity
59. What does the underlined sentence in the last paragraph suggest? A. China ranked 60th in economic development. B. China needs more efforts to improve its living quality. C. China ranked 60th in the world in per capita GDP. D. China was one of the worst places to live in for 2005. B Many cities around the world today are heavily polluted. Careless methods of production and lack of consumer demand for environment friendly products have contributed to the pollution problem. One result is that millions of tons of glass, paper, plastic, and metal containers are produced, and these are difficult to get rid of. However, today, more and more consumers are choosing "green" and demanding that the products they buy should be safe for the environment. Before they buy a product, they ask questions like these : "Will this shampoo damage the environment?" "Can this metal container be reused or can it only be used once?" A result study showed that two out of five adults now consider the environmental safety of a product before they buy it. This means that companies must now change the way they make and sell their products to make sure that they are "green", that is, friendly to the environment. Only a few years ago, it was impossible to find green products in supermarkets, but now there are hundreds. Some supermarket products carry labels to show that the product is green. Some companies have made the manufacturing of clean and safe products their main selling point and emphasize it in their advertising. The concern for a safer and cleaner environment is making companies rethink how they do business. No longer wilt the public accept the old attitude of "Buy it, use it, throw it away, and forget it. "The public pressure is on, and. gradually business is cleaning up its act. 60. It becomes clear from the text that the driving force behind green products is _________ . A. public caring for the environment B. companies desire for bigger sales C. new ways of doing business D. rapid growth of supermarkets 61. What would be the best title for the text? A. Business arid People B. Business Goes Green C. Shopping Habits Are Changing D. Supermarkets and Green Products 62. The underlined word "it" in the fourth paragraph refers to ________. A. a selling point B. the company name C. a great demand for health foods D. the manufacturing of green products C Suppose you work in a big firm and find English very important for your job because you often deal with foreign businessmen.

As Christmas drew nearer, her desire for a bicycle seemed to fade, or so we thought. We bought the latest rage, Baby-Sitter's Club dolls, and a doll house. Then, much to our surprise, on December 23rd, she said that she really wanted a bike more than anything else. It was just too late, with all the details of preparing Christmas dinner and buying last-minute gifts, to take the time to select the "right bike" for our little girl. So, it was Christmas Eve around 9:00 p. m. , with Almie and her six-year-old brother, Dylan was in their beds. Now we could only think of the bicycle and the disappointment of our child. "What if I make a little bicycle out of clay and write a note that she could trade the clay model in(抵 价) for a real bike?" her Dad asked. "This is an expensive item and she is ?such a big girl?, it would be much better for her to pick it out. " So she spent the next four hours painstakingly working with clay to make a tiny bike. On Christmas morning, we were excited for Almie to open the little heart-shaped package with the beautiful red and white clay bike and the note. Finally, she opened it and read the note aloud. "Does this mean that I trade in this bike that Daddy made me for a real one?" "Yes," I said. Almie had tears in her eyes when she replied, "I could never trade in this beautiful bicycle that Daddy made me. I'd rather keep this than get a real bike. " At that moment, we would have moved heaven and earth to buy her every bicycle on the planet! 67. Choose the right time order of the following events. a. The girl asked for a new bike. b. The girl opened the little heart-shaped package. c. The parents bought the girl a modern and popular doll. d. The father made the girl a bike with clay. e.

B. The girl wept because she didn't like the present at all. C. The girl loved the special gift made by her father. D. The parents ignored the daughter's desire for a bike. 69. Why did Dad make the clay bicycle? A. He wanted his daughter to buy a real one. B. He didn't want to disappoint his daughter. C. He thought his daughter would like it. D. He wanted to give his daughter a surprise. 70. What can be inferred from the last sentence of the passage? A. The parents would never buy their daughter a real bike. B. The parents felt sorry for their daughter. C. The parents were moved and felt proud of their daughter. D. The parents shouldn't have cheated their daughter. E Most people think that the capital of the movie world is Hollywood, in the United States. However, the real movie capital is Mumbai, in India. Mumbai used to be known as Bombay, and so the film industry there is called "Bollywood". Bollywood makes twice as many movies each year as Hollywood-more than 800 films a year. The movies from Bollywood are very different from Hollywood movies. For one thing, Bollywood movies contain singing, dancing, action, adventure, mystery, and romance. Because Bollywood films contain so many different features, this style of film is sometimes called a "masala" film. ("Masala" is an Indian word for a mixture of spices.) Another big difference between Bollywood and Hollywood movies is the way the movies are made. It takes much longer to make a movie in Hollywood than in Bollywood. In fact, filming may begin on a Bollywood movie before the script is even finished. The director and writers can make up the story while the film is being made. Sometimes they wilt even write the script by hand instead of taking time to type it. Bollywood actors are very popular and some are in such high demand that they may work on several movies at the same time. They may even shoot scenes for several films on the same day using the same clothes and scenery. Since most Bollywood movies follow the same kind of story, shooting scenes for several films at the same time is not a big problem for actors or directors. This also helps keep the cost of Bollywood movies lower than the cost of Hollywood movies. The average Bollywood film, with a budget(预算) of only two million U. S. dollars, seems very cheap compared to the average budget of sixty million U. S. dollars for a Hollywood film-thirty times as much! 71. The main topic of the passage is _______. A. famous stars in Bollywood B. how Hollywood movies are made
C. the differences between two movie industries D. the history of movie-making in India 72. What is NOT true about Mumbai?' A. It is the movie capital of India. B. Its new name is Bombay. C. More movies are made there than in Hollywood. D. The film industry there is called "Bollywood'. 73. Why are Bollywood films often called "masala" films? A. They have interesting stories. B. They are much longer than Hollywood films. C. They show Indian culture. D. They mix different styles of movies. 74. Bollywood movies are cheap to make because ______. A. they are shorter than Hollywood films B. the scripts are written by hand C. the movies do not use any special effects D. most movies reuse things from other movies 75. Which of these statements would the writer probably agree with? A. Most Bollywood movies are very similar. B. It takes a lot of money to make a good movie. C. Only Indian people can understand Bollywood movies. D. Hollywood movies are too violent. 第四部分 完形填空 36-40 C D C B A41-45 B D B C A 46-50 D A B C D 51-55 A B C D A 第五部分 阅读理解 56.D。 57.C。 58.D。 59.B。 60.A。 61.B。 62.D。 63.B. 64.D. 65.B. 66.D.67.B。 68.C。 69.B。 70.C。 71.C。 72.B。 73.D。 74.D。 75.A。
