第三部分 阅读理解 Ａ The Winter Palace was built between 1754 and 1762 for Empress Elizabeth, the daughter of Peter the Great. Unfortunately, Elizabeth died before the palace was completed and only Catherine the Great and her successors were able to enjoy the great interior (内部) of Elizabeth’s home. Many parts of the palace’s impressive interior have been remodeled since then, particularly after 1837, when a huge fire destroyed most of the building. Today the Winter Palace, together with four more buildings arranged side by side along the river embankment, houses the extensive collections of the Hermitage. The Hermitage Museum is the largest art gallery in Russia and is among the largest and most respected art museums in the world. The museum was founded in 1764 when Catherine the Great bought a collection of 255 paintings from the German city of Berlin. Today, the Hermitage boasts over 2.7 million exhibits and displays, a diverse range of art and artifacts (手工艺品) from all over the world and throughout history (from Ancient Egypt to the early 20th century Europe). The Hermitage’s collections include works by Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, Raphael and Titian, a collection of Rembrandts and Rubens, many French Impressionist works by Renoir, Cezanne, Monet and Pissarro, and several works by Rodin. The collection is really worth a stop for all those interested in art and history. The experts say that if you were to spend a minute looking at each exhibit on show in the Hermitage, you would need 11 years before you’d seen them all.

Kevin loved being outdoors among the wild rosebushes in front of his house with a view of distant mountains. It had been a good day for his wife, Sharon, too. They spent the morning in fron t of the house, talking and drinking tea. Sharon felt strong and tried her best to cook, starting a pot of homemade soup — a task that would have been nothing a few years ago, but is a little hard for her now. Her illness had left her weak, often puzzled. Sharon was the take-charge person in the family. She was seldom sick until 1997, when she began suffering from terrible headaches. One day at work, colleagues said she didn’t look right and urged her to go to the hospital. She rose from her chair and fell over. She could hear voices, but couldn’t speak. It looked as if she’d had a stroke. Other stroke-like symptoms (症状) followed. She had difficulty walking. She ran a fever all the time. The headaches never stopped. She and Kevin spent all their savings seeing doctors and on medical tests. In 2000, physicians said Sharon had brain damage that left her with symptoms resembling dementia (痴呆症 ). Once, she visited a familiar store and couldn’ t remember where the exit was. Another time, she was making spaghetti, but didn’t know what to do after the water boiled. After seeing specialists, Kevin and Sharon came to believe that exposure (暴 露) to mold had caused Sharon’s condition. Her world was certainly getting worse. At times she needed a wheelchair. The woman who never liked asking for help had to stay at home and rely on her husband. 60. Why is it hard for Sharon to cook now? A. She got seriously ill. B. She became old. C. She couldn’t speak. D. She has not cooked for a long time. 61. The underlined word “resembling” means “______”. A. like B. as C. equal to D. representing
62. According to the passage, what is the cause of Sharon’s illness? A. Working too hard. B. Exposure to the sun. C. Exposure to mold. D. Cooking too much. 63. After reading the passage, we can infer that Shar on was a(n) ______ woman before she became ill. A. independent B. clever D. kind D. forgetful Ｃ Pavarotti, one of the most famous tenors in the world, died in Italy on September 5, 2007. He died after a yearlong fight with cancer. He was 71 years old when he died. During his lifetime, his recordings sold more than 100 million albums (专辑), and his voice was popular everywhere. When he was working last month, he was sent to hospital. He thought the important thing was to sing very well until the audience sang and always had a fresh voice as his father did. Even during his most recent hospitalization (住院治疗), Pavarotti’s wife said that he would sing again. Pavarotti was born in Modena, Italy on Oct. 12, 1935. His father was a great tenor too. He followed his father’s footsteps and made a whole new path. In the beginning, he was an elementary school teacher. The turning point came when he was 25 on April 21, 1961. He won an important competition, and sang the first time as a singer on the Italian stage in a production of La Boheme. From there, Pavarotti started a career that made him the world’s most famous opera singer. He was able to draw the attention of 500,000 in New York’s Central Park and was also able to invite stars such as James Brown, Sting and Bono to sing in his “Pavarotti & Friends” benefit concert, which was held every year. Pavarotti was a different kind of star. He was overweight, wearing a tux and sang in tongues foreign to most common Saturday Night Live viewers. Despite this, his fame transcended (超越) the opera house. Pavarotti won five Grammys all his life, earned a night at the Kennedy Center Honors with those well-known people like Jack Nicholson, Julie Andrews and Quincy Jones and played in his own Hollywood movie, the 1982 romantic comedy Ｙｅｓ?熏 Ｇｉｏｒｇｉｏ, which was a failure. Pavarotti, Placido Domingo and Jose Carreras are known as “The Three Tenors.” 64. About Pavarotti, the following statements are true EXCEPT that ______. A. he once played in a Hollywood film B. he once performed in New York’s Central Park C. his father could sing very well D. his own Hollywood movie won him great fame 65.

Pavarotti had more than 100 million albums sold in his life. 66. In which way was Pavarotti different from other singers?

The other six Ancient Wonders of the World are the Hanging Gardens of Babylon, the Statue of Zeus at Olympia, the Temple of Artemis at Ephesus, the Mausoleum at Halicarnassus, the Colossus of Rhodes and the Lighthouse of Alexandria. Now a new list of seven has been chosen from 21 locations shortlisted for the worldwide vote by history lovers. An original list of nearly 200 sites picked out by the public was narrowed to 21 by the organizers and experts, including the former director general of Unesco Professor Federico Mayor. Among the 21 locations were the Stonehenge (巨石阵) in Britain, Acropolis in Athens, the Statue of Liberty in New York, Taj Mahal in India and the Great Wall in China. The only standard for the new list was that the landmarks were built or discovered before 2000. The vote was organized by a non-profit Swiss foundation called New7Wonders specializing in the protection, rebuilding and mending of historical relics. The result was announced in Lisbon, on July 7, 2007. Here is the complete list of the new seven wonders: the Great Wall of China, Petra, Chichéｎ Ｉtzá?熏 the Statue of Christ Redeemer, the Colosseum, Machu Picchu and the Taj Mahal.

Ｅ All-Star Yao Ming of the Houston Rockets missed his first game of the season and the third of his NBA career Sunday night because of right big-toe pains. “It’s not a one-game thing,” head coach Jeff Van Gundy said before the Rockets met the Los Angeles Lakers in the finale of a six-game road trip (客场). “It will probably be a multiplegame thing. We’ll know more after he sees the doctor. He doesn’t miss much, so when he misses, he’s hurt.” Yao returned home before Sunday night’s game. He has had a problem with his right big toe for some time, missing two preseason games because it was troubling him. The 25-year-old center has played in 266 regular-season games since joining the Rockets in 2002. “We can still win,” Van Gundy said. “Certainly, your chances are better when you have your better players.” “We just have to go about business as usual,” Rockets guard David Wesley said. “It’s unfortunate. We’ve got to find a way to win despite that. It won’t be easy.” Van Gundy said Dikembe Mutombo would take the place of Yao. Mutombo was averaging 10.9 minutes, 1.7 points and 3.3 rebounds (篮板) in 20 games. “I’m ready to go, and there’s no question about that,” the 39-year-old center said. “You don’t know when your name is going to be called.” Lakers’ coach Phil Jackson said Yao’s absence was “a disappointment for our fans”. When Lakers’ forward Lamar Odom was told that Yao wouldn’t be playing, he replied, “Good. This is sports, right?” 73. From the passage it can be inferred that ______. A. Yao Ming missed his first game of his NBA career B. Yao Ming has played in 266 regular-season games this year C. Yao couldn’t play in the game against the Lakers and it would be hard for the Rockets to win the game D. Mutombo was a better center than Yao Ming 74.
