We both worked for my uncle, who had taken possession of a maintenance (道路养护) company. It was our duty to keep the roads 40 of rubbish. The job was 41 and dirty; especially on hot days like this. I wondered why I ever agreed to do it. We continued our regular route along the 1-595, 42 for the overpass bridge. Then I noticed an area where some 43 were broken on the ground. It wasn’t like that before. “Dad! Pull over! I want to 44 something out.” I jumped off the truck and rushed to the bridge. Something was telling me to 45 ...there wasn’t much time. Below I saw a Toyota that 46 upside down in the tree. Maybe it was a stolen car that somebody deserted (丢弃) there, I thought. Then, just at that moment, I noticed something moving. It was bloody leg poking out (露出) of the driver’s side window! “Heeeelp!” a lady moaned. 35. A. turn B. keep C. make D. cool 36. A. parents B. school-times C. friends D. school yards 37.

It’s always a good idea to put on your seat belt when you’re in a car. Why? Think about this example: You put an egg on a skateboard and give it a push. If the skateboard hits a stone, it will stop, but the egg won’t. It will fly through the air, hit the ground and break.
Now, think what would happen if you tied the egg to the skateboard. When the skateboard hits a stone, the egg won’t go flying; it will stay safely on the skateboard. Volvo, a famous Swedish carmaker, was the first to use seat belts in 1849. Air bags are also very important for car safety, because sometimes a seat belt isn’t enough. If the car is going really fast and runs into something, seat belts could even hurt the people who wear them. Most new cars have air bags in front of and next to the seats. When a car hits something, its air bags will come out quickly in less than one second to keep the people inside safe. 50. Seat belts can make cars safer because ________. A. they are made of strong materials B. they can stop us from hitting other cars C. they can help us stay safely on the seats D. people are interested in them 51. Air bags are also important for cars because they ________. A. are made of plastic B. work together with seat belts to keep us safe C. are put in front of and next to the seats D. can stop cars hitting each other 52. The best title for this passage is ________. A. Useful Seat Belts B. Egg on Skateboard C. Air Bags Work Well D. Make Yourself Safe in Cars C When I was growing up, I had an old neighbor, Dr. Gibbs. He didn’t look like any doctor I’d ever known. He never invited us to play in his yard, but he was a very kind person. When Dr. Gibbs wasn’t saving lives, he was planting trees. He owned a large field and wanted to make it a forest. The good doctor had some interesting ideas about planting trees. He never watered his new trees. Once I asked why. He said that watering plants spoiled (破坏) them, and that if you watered them, each baby tree would grow weaker and weaker, so you had to make things difficult for them and pick out the weaker trees early on. He talked about how watering trees made for shallow roots (浅的根), and hoe trees that weren’t watered had to grow deep roots in search of water under the earth by themselves. Deep roots were very important. So he never watered his trees. He’d planted an oak and, instead of watering it every morning, he’d beat it with a rolled-up newspaper. I asked him why he did that, and he said it was to get the tree’s attention. Dr. Gibbs died several years after I left home. Every now and then, I walked by his house and looked at the trees that I watched him plant about twenty-five years ago. They’re very big and strong
now. I planted some trees a few years back and carried water to them for a whole summer. After two years of caring too much, whenever a cold win blows in, they shake a lot. Every night before I go to bed, I check on my two sons. Mostly I pray (祈祷) that their lives will be easy. But lately I’ve been thinking that it’s time to change my prayer. I know my children are going to face difficulties. There’s always a cold wind blowing somewhere, so what we need to do is to pray for roots that reach deep into the brave heart, so when the rains fall and the winds blow, we could face it strongly and won’t be beaten down. 53. The passage tells us that the writer ________. A. should beat his trees with a rolled-up newspaper B. didn’t often water his trees C. took too much care of his trees D. didn’t have a large field 54. The writer wants to change his prayer, hoping that ________. A. his trees will be stronger than Dr. Gibbs’ B. his trees will not be beaten down C. his sons will be better at planting trees D. his sons will be able to face difficulties 55. Which can be the best title of the passage? A. Watering Trees B. Growing Roots C. Doctor and His Neighbor D. Father and His Children D Without goals, life is meaningless. Goals provide the direction in life. It is always wondered why some people cannot see the importance of goals, the need to set goals and follow them through. Very few people would get on a plane or a ship, not knowing where they were traveling to. Goals are the aim for striving (奋斗目标) and those who walk about without plans through life waste a great deal of time. Goal setting has long been thought to be necessary in business and more recently many people have come to think highly of some of the great people in the world—people who set simple goals and who go after them—such as Nelson Mandela, Mother Teresa and Michael Jordan. For personal development, the starting point is setting goals. Sometimes the starting point is dreaming, having wishes, then breaking their big plan into small ones that can be achieved (实现). A useful idea is to think about what you would really like to achieve, what you will be in the future—five years from now, ten years from now. Writing these down is a good starting point. It is always wise to break goals up into short-term and long-term goals. Knowing that something is achievable soon can give more confidence to achieve. Long-term goals will probably be fewer, but short-term goals can fall into a “more possible to achieve” basket.
Goals need to be started with clearness. The clearer they are, the easier they are to reach. If a goal is shown clearly, it can guide to a fitting action. It is important that a person never loses sight of their goals. To do so is to become aimless and off track. It is sometimes useful to question yourself. “How important is this goal to me?” If the answer is “I think it is very important”, then it must be followed. That means that action must be taken at once. Delay (拖延) is the thief of time for human. The longer you delay, the more difficult it is to achieve goals. There are many people who probably have less skill, even less education than you, yet they succeed. It is most likely because they take action, they realized what they want, what they set out to do. They achieve their goal. Goal setting really never finishes for the successful person. Once a goal has been achieved, there is another to be set and reached for. 56. The good starting to take action is ________. A. to go after these great successful people B. to have dreams or make some wishes C. to write down what you think about D. to think about what your really like to achieve 57. The underlined sentence in Paragraph 4 means ________. A. long-term goals are probably fewer than short-term goals B. short-term goals are more possible to achieve than long-term goals C. it is much easier to set short-term goals than to set long-term goals D. fewer long-term goals can be put into a basket of short-term goals 58. To be successful, it is important for one to ________. A. follow them through without delay after setting goals B. set long-term goals and never lose sight of them C. have not only more skill but also good education D. ask oneself large numbers of questions and make them clear 59. Which of the following is the main point of the passage? A. Why it is necessary to set goals in life B. How best people can set their goals C. How important the goals are to people D. Why it is possible for some people to succeed 七、阅读拉文，根据短文内容，从短文后的五个选项中选出能填入空白处的最佳选项。选项中有 一项为多余选项。(共 8 分，每小题 2 分) (若选 E，请涂 A+B) Reading is very important to help you learn English.

The Matterhorn is popular to mountain climbers because it is so difficult to climb. The girls first got the idea for a climbing expedition a few years ago, when a well-known disabled (unable to use legs or arms, etc.) climber, Norman Croucher, gave a talk at their school. Norman lost both his legs in a train accident when he was nineteen, but he has climbed some of the world’s highest mountains on his artificial legs. “He inspired us,” said Claire. Then the girls met a well-known mountaineer called Turbo Thomas and he became their trainer. For the next two years he took them climbing in the Swiss Alps during the summer holidays and they trained very hard. “It wasn’t easy,” said Annabelle. “The weather was often a problem. Sometimes it was so cold that we didn’t want to get out of bed, but Turbo dragged us to the foot of the mountain and made us climb.” The girls kept going and finally they were ready to try the Matterhorn. They made a date for the last week in August and traveled to Zermatt. They started to climb, but unluckily the weather beat them. “It rained every day so it was impossible to climb every far,” said Claire. Are they disappointed? “Of course not,” said Annabelle. “I know we didn’t get to the top, but we’ll be back next summer to try again! Climbing is our life.” 64. Is Annabelle as old as Claire? ____________________________________________________________________________ 65.
