Ghosts and Other Strange Things B There are moments in life when you miss someone so much that you just want to pick them from your dreams and hug them for real! Dream what you want to dream; go where you want to go; be what you want to be, because you have only one life and one chance to do all the things you want to do. May you have enough happiness to make you sweet, enough difficulties to make you strong, enough sorrow to keep you human, enough hope to make you happy. Always put yourself in others’ shoes. If you feel that it hurts you, it probably hurts the other person, too. The happiest people don’t necessarily have the best of everything; they just make the most of everything that comes along their way. Happiness lies for those who cry, those who hurt, those who have searched, and those who have tried, for they can appreciate the importance of people who have touched their lives. Love begins with a smile, grows with a kiss and ends with a tear. The brightest future will always be based on a forgotten past, and you can’t go on well in life until you let go of your past failures and heartaches. When you were born, you were crying and everyone around you was smiling. Live your life so that when you die, you’re the one who is smiling and everyone around you is crying. Please send this message to those people who mean something to you, to those who have touched your life in one way or another, to those who make you smile when you really need it, to those who make you see the brighter side of things when you are really down, to those who you want to let know that you appreciate their friendship. And if you don’t, don’t worry; nothing bad will happen to you. You will just miss out on the opportunity to brighten someone’s day with this message. 24. The tone used in the passage is ____. A. discouraging B. negative C. positive D. critical 25. Which statement does the writer probably agree with? ______ A. If you want to cry, cry. B. Smile in face of death. C. The best or nothing. D. Nothing is impossible. 26. After reading this passage, a reader is most likely to ______.

A. by dreaming what we want to dream B. after times of attempts and failures C. so long as we are full of hopes D. if we try to make more friends C In my first week as a graduate student at Cambridge University in 1964 I met with a fellow student, two years ahead of me in his studies; he was unsteady on his feet and spoke with great difficulty. This was Stephen Hawking. I learned that he had a bad disease and might not live long enough even to finish his PhD degree. But, amazingly, he has reached the age of 73. Even mere survival would have been a medical miracle, but of course, he didn’t merely survive. He has become arguably the most famous scientist in the world for his brilliant research, for his bestselling books, and, above all, for his astonishing victory over hardship. Stephen received his “death sentence” in 1964, when I thought it was hard for him to go on with his study. Stephen went from Albans School to Oxford University. He was said to be a “lazy” undergraduate, but his brilliance earned him a first-class degree, an “entry ticket” to a research career in Cambridge and a uniquely inspiring achievement. Within a few years of the burst of his disease he was wheelchair-bound, and his speech was so unclear that it could only be understood by those who knew him well. But his scientific career went from strength to strength: he quickly came up with a series of insights into the nature of black holes (then a very new idea) and how the universe began. In 1974 he was elected to the Royal Society at the exceptionally early age of 32. The great advances in science generally involve discovering a link between phenomena that were previously conceptually unconnected — for instance, Isaac Newton realized that the force making an apple fall to earth was the same as the force that holds the moon and planets in their orbits. Stephen’s revolutionary idea about a link between gravity and quantum(量子) theory has still not been tested. However, it has been hugely influential; indeed, one of the main achievements of string theory(弦理 论)has been to confirm and build on his idea. He has undoubtedly done more than anyone else since Einstein to improve our knowledge of gravity and he is one of the top-ten living theoretical physicists. 28. What impressed the author most about Stephen Hawking? A. His brilliant research. B. His bestselling books. C. His serious disease. D. His defeating hardship. 29. What made Stephen Hawking start his research career at Cambridge? A. His above-average talent and ability. B. His “lazy” attitude.
C. His death sentence. D. His rich experience. 30. It can be inferred that Stephen Hawking was born . A. in the late 1940s B. in the early 1940s C. in the early 1930s D. in the late 1930s 31. What can we learn from the text? A. Hawking’s theory was proved years ago. B. Hawking was not as successful as Newton. C. String theory built on Hawking’s idea. D. Hawking’s theory has had little influence on others. D Developed and developing nations can learn from each other seeking a low-carbon economy，a Chinese government official said in Shanghai yesterday. “China doesn't lag developed nations in terms of energy saving and green economy”, said Zhou Changyi, director of the energy saving department of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology. “While we can learn many aspects from developed nations，they also should learn something from us, such as water conservation,” Zhou said in a speech during the new Path of China's Industrialization forum at the ongoing China International Industry Fair 2009. He said industrialized nations and China are dealing with different issues to combat climate change. The United Kingdom ， for example ， is concerned about transport，buildings and new energy in reducing carbon emissions(排放）.For China， the most urgent task is how to realize newtype of industrialization and avoid mistakes that other countries made when they industrialized. As such，overseas exhibitors at this year's fair are showing ways to help China achieve low carbon emissions in the industrial section. Swiss power and automation technology group ABB called for a stronger focus on product lifecycle assessment， or LCA， which is used to study the environmental impact of a product from the research and manufacturing stage through its usage and recycling. Tobias Becker，head of ABB's process automation division for North Asia and China，said LCA is an effective tool in helping manufacturing industries to reduce carbon emissions. LCA shows that industrial customers should focus on a product's environmental impact throughout its lifecycle instead of on its initial investment or readytouse stage. For example，a motor's initial investment accounts for only 3 percent of its lifecycle cost，while 94 percent goes to fuel consumption and the rest to maintenance. Richard Hausmann, North East Asia CEO of Siemens, said, “The color of future industrialization is green.”
The Germany Company recently announces that it wants to receive orders worth more than 6 billion Euros (US 8.8 billion) for intelligent net power networks，Smart Grid，over the next five years. Siemens has set a 20 percent market share target for the global smart grid business. A smart grid delivers electricity from suppliers to consumers using digital technology， advanced sensors specialized computers that save energy， reduce costs and increase reliability. The United States and China are considered the two biggest markets for smart grid. 32．“______” can replace the underlined word“ lag”. A．Fall behind C．Attack B．Be superior to D．Fear
33．Which of the following about LCA is TRUE? A．LCA is used to study the impact on a product. B．LCA can help manufacturing industries decrease carbon release a lot. C． LCA shows industrial customers should focus on a product's environmental influence on its initial investment. D．LCA was one of the exhibitions at this year's fair. 34．We can infer ______ from the last paragraph of this passage. A．Siemens has occupied 20 percent market share for the global smart grid business B．Siemens received orders worth 6 billion Euros recently C．Siemens will earn $ 8.8 billion from intelligent power networks D．Siemens' plan about Smart Grid may come true in the future 35．The best title for the passage is______. A．Developed and Developing Nations Can Learn From Each Other B．Lowcarbon Economy—a Shared Goal C．Intelligent Power Networks D．Two Biggest Markets for Smart Grid 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。 There is distinction( 区别 ) between reading for information and reading for understanding. 36 The first sense is the one in which we read newspapers, magazines, or anything else. 37 Such materials may increase our store of information, but they cannot improve our understanding. And clearly we don’t have any difficulty in gaining the new information, for our understanding was equal to them before we started. Otherwise,
we would have felt the shock of puzzlement. The second sense is the one in which we read something that at first we do not completely understand. Here the things to be read are at the first sight better or higher than the readings. The writer is communicating something that can increase the reader’s understanding. 38 Otherwise one person could never learn from another. Here “learning” means understanding more, not remembering more information. What are the conditions in this kind of reading? First, there is inequality in understanding. 39 Besides, his book must convey something he possesses and his potential readers lack. Second, the reader must be able to overcome this inequality in some degree. And he should always try to reach the same level of understanding with the writer. If the equality is approached, success of communication is achieved. 40 It is the least demanding and requires the least amount of effort. Everyone who knows how to read can read for entertainment if he wants to. In fact, any book that can be read for understanding or information can probably be read for entertainment as well.
A. Besides gaining information and understanding, there’s another goal of reading—entertainment. B. Reading for entertainment can increase our understanding for information. C. Thus, we can employ the word “reading” in two distinct senses. D. The writer must be “superior” to the reader in understanding. E. We can get access to the content of those materials easily. F. Such communication between unequals must be possible. G. There is no need to have a good communicating skill. 第三部分 完形填空(共 20 小题；每小题 1．5 分，满分 30 分)
