B When the dog named Judy spotted the first sheep in her life, she did what comes naturally. The four-year-old dog set off racing after the sheep across several fields and, being a city animal, lost both her sheep and her sense of direction. Then she ran along the edge of cliff( 悬崖) and fell 100 feet, bouncing off a rock into the sea. Her owner Mike Holden panicked and celled the coastguard of Cornwall, who turned up in seconds . Six volu nteers slid down the cliff with the help of a rope but gave up all hope of finding her alive after a 90-minute search. Three days later, a hurricane hit the coast near Cornwall. Mr. Holden returned home from his holiday upset and convinced his pet was dead. He comforted himself with the thought she had died in the most beautiful part of the country. For the next two weeks, the Holdens were heartbroken . Then, one day, the phone rang and Steve Tregear, the coastguard of Cornwall, asked Holder if he would like his dog bark. A birdwatcher, armed with a telescope, found the pet sitting desperately on a rock. While he sounded the alarm, a student from Leeds climbed down the cliff to collect Judy. The dog had initially been knocked unconscious(失去知觉的)but had survived by drinking water from a fresh scream at the base of the cliff. She may have fed on the body of a sheep which had also fallen over the edge. “The dog was very thin and hungry,” Steve Tregear said , “It was a very dog. She survived because of a plentiful supply of fresh water,” he added. It was ,as Mr. Holden admitted, “a minor miracle(奇迹)”. 25. The dog Jody fell down the cliff when she was __________. A. rescuing her owner B. caught in a hurricane C. blocked by a rock D. running after a sheep 26. Who spotted Judy after the accident? A. A birdwatcher B. A student from Leeds C. Six volunteer D. The coastguard of Cornwall 27. What can we infer from the text? A. People like to travel with their pets. B. Judy was taken to the fields for hunting. C. Luck plays a vital role in Judy's survival. D. Holden cared little where Judy was buried. 28. Which of the following can be the best title for the text? A. Miracle of the Coastguard. B. Surviving a Hurricane. C. Dangers in the Wild D. Coming Back from the Dead. C Harvard University in the United States has been ranked as the university with the best “reputation(名誉)” in the world. The Times Higher Education magazine has listed 200 top universities all over the world based on how they are regarded by a group of international college teachers. That is to say the list measures how universities are regarded, rather than how they actually performed. A subjective, word-of-mouth (口碑的) quality such as “reputation” has genuine economic (经济的) value for universities, said Simon Marginson, professor of higher education at the University of Melbourne in Australia. “Reputation is not just an impression, though it might be not as reliable as performance by objective indicators (客观指标),” said Prof Marginson. Based on the views of 13,000 college teachers around the world, it confirms the power of the big US universities, which dominate this list. Seven of the top 10 are US universities, headed by Harvard and Massachusetts Institute of Technology
(MIT).Furthermore, 14 of the top 20 are from the US. Cambridge is the highest ranking UK university in the list, in third place, with Oxford ranked as sixth. For students applying to university, reputation might be hard to quantify, but was an important part of the attractiveness, said the president of Cambridge University’s students’ union, Rahul Mansigani. “Reputation makes a huge difference. If there is an idea that somewhere is great, it will get lots of good people applying whether it’s true or not. Factors such as a sense of history and the presence of outstanding college teachers were part of the reputation of Cambridge,” he said. 29. What is special about the latest ranking of universities? A. It is very subjective. B. It involves many indicators. C. It is made by international professors. D. It includes universities across the world. 30. Which of the following shows the correct order of the ranking? A. Cambridge → MIT → Oxford → Harvard B. Cambridge → Harvard → Oxford → MIT C. Harvard → MIT → Cambridge → Oxford D. Harvard → Cambridge → MIT → Oxford 31. The underlined word “dominate” in Paragraph 5 probably means ______. A. affect B. decide C. control D. improve 32. What can be inferred from the text? A. No Asian universities are among the Top 10. B. At least five UK universities are among Top 20. C. The Times Higher Education magazine is from the US. D. Reputation affects students’ decisions when choosing universities. D Parents who help their children with homework may actually be bringing down their school grades. Other forms of prenatal involvement, including volunteering at school and observing a child's class, also fail to help, according to the most recent study on the topic. The findings challenge a key principle of modern parenting(养育子女) where schools except them to act as partners in their children's education. Previous generations concentrated on getting children to school on time, fed, dressed and ready to learn. Kaith Robinson, the author of the study, said, "I really don't know if the public is ready for this but there are some ways parents can be involved in their kids' education that leads to declines in their academic performance. One of the things that was consistently negative was parents' help with homework." Robinson suggested that may be because parents themselves struggle to understand the task." They may either not remember the material their kids are studying now, or in some cases never learnt it themselves, but they're still offering advice." Robinson assessed parental involvement performance and found one of the most damaging things a parent could do was to punish their children for poor marks. In general, about 20% of parental involvement was positive, about 45% negative and the rest statistically insignificant. Common sense suggests it was a good thing for parents to get involved because "children with good academic success do have involved parents ", admitted Robinson. But he argued that this did not prove parental involvement was the root cause of that success. " A big surprise was that Asian-American parents whose kids are doing so well in school hardly involved. They took a more reasonable approach, conveying to their children how success at school could improve their lives." 33. The underlined expression "parental involvement " in Paragraph 1 probably means __________. A. parents' expectation on children's health B. parents' participation in children's education
C. parents' control over children's life D. parents' plan for children's future 34. What is the major finding of Robinson's study ? A. Modern parents raise children in a more scientific way. B. Punishing kids for bad marks is mentally damaging. C. Parental involvement is not so beneficial as expected. D. Parents are not able to help with children’s homework. 35. The example of Asian-American parents implies that parents should __________. A. help children realize the importance of schooling B. set a specific life goal for their children C. spend more time improving their own lives D. take a more active part in school management 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。 Are you simply moving through your day without fully living? I think many of us have done this. Everyone wants to full y live every day. 36 So I’ve decided to share with you some ways to help you enjoy every moment. Sit in the morning. When you wake up, in the quiet of the morning, sit on the floor. I often use this opportunity to stretch (伸展). 37 I also just sit, and focus on my breathing going in and out. 38 I like to take breaks from work, and go outside for a slow walk. Pay attention to your breathing, to everything around you, to the sounds and light of objects. Read in silence. Find a quiet time, and a quiet place, and read a good novel. Have no television or computers on nearby. And just put yourself in the world of the novel. It might seem difficult to let your mind move from the present into the time of the novel, but it’s a great practice in focus. 39 40 Each day, find someone you care about and be grateful for his existence. If you want, you can tell that person how thankful you are to him. A. B. C. D. E. F. G. Walk slowly. Work with focus. Look at someone in a grateful way. But this is easier said than done. I feel every muscle in my body. It’s a way of building something good into your life. Also, I love a good novel more than almost anything else.
