Section B （12 分 每题 2 分） Directions: Read the following two passages. Each passage is followed by several questions or unfinished statements. For each of them there are four choices marked A, B, C and D. Choose the one that fits best according to the information given in the passage you have just read. A Some people think that success is only for those with talent or those who grow up in the right family, and others believe that success mostly comes down to luck. I’m not going to say luck, talent, and circumstances don’t come into play because they do. Some people are born into the right family while others are born with great intelligence, and that’s just the reality of how life is. However, to succeed in life, one first needs to set a goal and then gradually make it more practical. And, in addition to that, in order to get really good at something, one needs to spend at least 10,000 hours studying and practicing. To become great at certain things, it’ll require even more time, time that most people won’t put in. This is a big reason why many successful people advise you to do something you love. If you don’t enjoy what you do, it is going to feel like unbearable pain and will likely make you quit well before you ever become good at it. When you see people exhibiting some great skills or having achieved great success, you know that they have put in a huge part of their life to get there at a huge cost. It’s sometimes easy to think they got lucky or they were born with some rare talent, but thinking that way does you no good, and there’s a huge chance that you’re wrong anyway. Whatever you do, if you want to become great at it, you need to work day in and day out, almost to the point of addiction, and over a long period of time. If you’re not willing to put in the time and work, don’t expect to receive any rewards. Consistent, hard work won’t guarantee you the level of success you may want, but it will guarantee that you will become rally good at whatever it is you put all that work into. 53. In Paragraph 2, the underlined word that refers to__________. A. being good at something C. putting in more time B. setting a practical goal D. succeeding in life
54. Successful people suggest doing what one loves because_____________. A. work makes one feel pain C. one gives up his work easily B. one tends to enjoy his work D. it takes a lot of time to succeed
55. What can be inferred from Paragraph 4? A. Successful people like to show their great skills. B. People sometimes succeed without luck or talent. C. People need to achieve success at the cost of life. D. It helps to think that luck or talent leads to success.

Section C （8 分 每题 2 分） Directions: Read the passage carefully. Then answer the questions or complete the statements in the fewest possible words. Not everyone is born with beautiful hair, but by learning a few about hair care, you can make your hair look its best. Healthy, attractive hair should look smooth, silky and shiny. Hair that is dull, dry, brittle （分叉） or frizzy(卷曲) is unhealthy and unattractive. Everyday events such as shampooing, brushing and blow drying can do great damage to your hair, causing the dry, brittle, frizzy look. When you shampoo your hair, you should apply shampoo for your specific type of hair, if you have color treated hair, you should use a shampoo for chemically treated hair. If you are not sure what your hair type is or what type of shampoo to use, ask your hairdresser. Your hairdresser can recommend a typical shampoo and conditioner to keep your hair shiny and healthy. Brushing your hair can actually improve the shine. If you have long hair that tends to tangle on the ends, you should start brushing on the ends to remove any tangles, and work your way u p to the scalp. You should never brush hair when hair is wet., because it is much weaker than when it is dry. Wet hair will break very easily if it is not combed very gently. If you have long hair, you should squeeze the extra water from your hair with a towel. Never rub your hair between the towel to dry it, this can cause severe breakage. Before combing, a leave-in conditioner should be sprayed on the hair to help restore shine and help remove tangles. Using a wide tooth comb, comb hair from the ends and work your way up. Blow dryers are very convenient and many of us use them daily. If they are used incorrectly, they can cause severe heat damage to your hair. Blow drying can cause your ends to be unhealthy. You should allow your hair to air dry until it is about half way dry. Set your dryer on low or medium heat, and keep the dryer about six to eight inches away from your hair. If you follow these tips, you should notice an improvement in the condition of your hair within two or four weeks, depending on how damaged your hair is. While you are making efforts to improve your hair condition, consult your hairdresser or visit your local beauty shop for more information on available products. 59. A healthy hair looks like________, ________ and _________. 60. Why should we never brush wet hair? ____________________________________________________________________________. 61. You turn to ______________ or_____________________________ for help if you are not sure which kind of shampoo is suitable for your hair. 62. What mentioned above can damage our hair?
