Her heart was pretty bad in the beginning and she stayed in the hospital for a month. The first few years were very difficult because she was very sick. She had five operations before she was three years old. She had trouble walking, playing with other children, and going to school.
Although Gina couldn’t laugh and talk, we all knew that she just needed love and care. Our parents wanted to take Gina to a special place in Florida. There she could swim with dolphins. Gina was afraid of swimming with them because she had never been around dolphins before. We had also never traveled that far as a family. When we got to Florida, we saw where the dolphins lived. It was a place where kids with special needs like Gina could come and spend time. I thought it was going to be a vacation, but it wasn’t. Gina had to work hard every day for a week. The trip was amazing. Gina laughed and clapped when she saw the dolphin. The dolphin splashed（溅起水花） when it saw Gina. They swam together all day. Gina was able to move her body more than she normally did at home. Mom and Dad were proud of Gina. I was , too. 21. We know from the text that Gina_________. A. experienced five operations in a month B. got along well with other children C. stayed in the hospital before three D. was born with a heart disease 22. The author’s family went to Florida to _______. A. treat Gina for her illness. B. have a family trip C. see the dolphins D. learn to swim 23. How did Gina feel about swimming with dolphins at first? A. Excited B. Frightened C. Angry D. Proud 24. The text is written to tell us that ________. A. Learning to walk is hard work B. dolphins can treat many illnesses C. families should travel together often D. help sometimes comes in unusual forms B Last summer I went through a training program and became a literacy volunteer. The training I received, though excellent, didn't tell me how it was to work with a real student, however. When I began to discover what other people’s lives were like because they could not read, I realized the true importance of reading. My first student Marie was a 44-year-old single mother of three children. In the first lesson, I found out she walked two miles to the nearest supermarket twice a week because she didn't know which bus to take. When I told her I would get her a bus schedule, she told me it would not help because she couldn't read it. She said she also had difficulty once she got to the supermarket because she couldn't always remember what she needed. Also, she could only recognize items by sight, so if the product had a different label, she would not recognize it as the product she wanted. As we worked together, learning how to read built Marie’s self-confidence. She began to make rapid progress and was even able to take the bus to the supermarket. After this successful trip, she reported how self-confident she felt. At the end of the program, she began helping her youngest son, Tony, a shy first grader, with his reading. I found that helping Marie to build her self-confidence was more rewarding than anything I had ever done before.
As a literacy volunteer, I learned a great deal about teaching and helping others. In fact, I may have learned more from the experience than Marie did. 25. What did the writer do last summer? A. She worked in the supermarket. B. She helped someone to learn to read. C. She helped some single mothers. D. She was trained by a literacy volunteer. 26. Why didn't Marie go to the supermarket by bus at first? A. Because she liked to walk to the supermarket. B. Because she didn't have a bus schedule. C. Because she couldn't afford the bus ticket. D. Because she couldn't find the right bus. 27. How did Marie use to find the goods she wanted in the supermarket? A. She knew where the goods were in the supermarket. B. She asked others to take her to the right place. C. She managed to find the goods by their looks. D. She remembered the names of the goods. 28. Which of the statements is TRUE about Marie? A. She could do many things she had not been able to before. B. She was able to read stories with the help of her son. C. She decided to continue her studies in school. D. She helped to build up my self-confidence. C Once in a busy street, a middle-aged businessman found his wallet missing. There was a lot of money in it. So he made a promise, "If someone finds my wallet and returns it to me, I'll give half the money to him." The wallet was found by a dustman in a dustbin. He sent it back to the loser. But the businessman changed his mind. "There was still a diamond ring in my wallet," said the loser, "I won't give half the money in my wallet to you until you return it to me!" "I've never seen a diamond ring in the wallet," said the dustman. They began to quarrel. The businessman refused to do what he had said. The dustman became angry and took him before a judge. After the judge heard what had happened to them, he said to the businessman, "I'm sure you are an honest man. It's true that you have lost a wallet in which there was a diamond ring. But it's also clear that there is only a lot of money in this wallet. I don't think it's yours. Wait for some time. Perhaps someone will be able to return your wallet to you!" Then the judge turned to the dustman and said, "Take the wallet home. If the loser doesn't go to get it back in three days, it will belong to you!" 29. The wallet the businessman lost ________.

Having heard what had happened, the judge _________ . A. took the side of the businessman B. did not know what to do C. took pity on the loser D. made a wise decision D Scientists believe that one of our most important means of knowing what is going on around us is the sense of sound. We are warned of danger by sounds. Sounds serve to please us in music. Sound has a waste product, too, in the form of noise. Noise has been called unwanted sound. Noise is growing and it may get much worse before it gets any better. In order to know how noise affects people and animals, scientists have been studying for several years. They are surprised by what they have learned. Peace and quiet are becoming harder to find. Noise pollution is a threat that should be looked at carefully. Sounds is measured in units called decibels (分贝). At a level of 140 decibels people feel pain in their ears. Trucks , buses , motorcycles, airplanes, boats, factories---all these things make noise. They trouble not only our ears, but minds and bodies as well. There is a saying that it is so noisy that you can’t hear yourself think. Doctors who study noise believe that we must sometimes hear ourselves think. If we don’t, we may have headaches, other aches and pains, or even worse mental problems. Noise adds more tension (紧张) to a society that has already faced enough stress. 32.The sense of sound _________. A. makes us feel excited B. helps us hear more clearly C. is something harmful to us D. helps to know what is happening around us 33. When sound is turned into noise, ______________. A. people grow worse and worse B. it makes us forget all the past C. people don’t know what to do with everyday life D. it will be a kind of pollution to people 34. Why does the passage say peace and quiet are becoming harder to find? A. Because the world is making more and more noise. B. Because wars and battles happen here and there in the world. C. Because all the sounds are becoming over 140 decibels. D. Because some machines can make noise.
35. Doctors say we can hear ourselves think __________. A. if we don’t like to hear noise B. if we have no aches or pains in our bodies C. if there isn’t too much noise D. if we can’t be careful of noise 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 As a child grows up，you may wonder how you can teach him to become a respectful adult. 36 A child who learns to respect not only learns to receive respect from others in kind，but also learn to respect himself. ●Show him respect.

六 作文范文 Less Stress, Better Life Stress is a serious problem in today’s world. Students in our class are under too much stress. Some students study very hard but they are still poor in their studies. They often worry about their exams. Others think that they have so much homework to do that they have no time to relax themselves. I’m always under stress, too. I’m good at every subject, but it is hard for me to get on well with my classmates, I can hardly communicate with my parents, either. I really feel tired sometimes. But how to solve the problem? I think a conversation with parents or teachers is helpful and taking exercise can make us relaxed when we’re under pressure.
