阅读下列短文，从每题所给的四个选项(A、B、C 和 D)中，选出 最佳选项。 A Life on land probably began about 430 million years ago, though it has existed in the water for perhaps as much as 3,000 million years. When we think of the first thing on land, we probably think of strange animals coming out of the oceans, but in fact no animals
could have been living if plants had not been on land first. Plants had to be on land before animals arrived.They supplied the first land animals with the surrounding and food necessity, since then, the plants, are the only form of life that is able to get and store energy. The first plants to exist out of the water were probably certain kinds of algae(海藻)which were followed by other plants that grew close to the ground and needed water in which to reproduce. Once the move to land had been made, however, evolution(进化)took place quickly. By the end of 100 million years, plants had developed their roots(根)，and some had got treelike forms since height was very important in gaining sunlight. About 300 million years ago, much of the world was covered with forests of huge trees. In most ways they were like modern trees. They had roots， leaves, wood, but mostly they had not developed seeds. 56．The main idea of the first paragraph is ________. A．life on land probably began 430 years ago B．the first animal on land came from oceans C．there wouldn’t be animals without plants D．plants are the only form of life that is able to get and store energy [解析] 根据第一段中的“...but in fact no animals could have
been living if plants had not been on land first.”可以选出正确答案。 [答案] C
57．Which of the following statements is TRUE according to the passage? A．Algae has existed for more than 430 million years. B．It is impossible that algae might be the earliest plant on land.
C．Plants get food from animals in the oceans. D．Evolution began after animals appeared on land. [ 解析 ] 第一段说陆地上的生命可能出现于大约 430 million
years ago，第二段说海藻是最早的植物。 [答案] A
58．According to the passage, ________ appeared earlier than ________. A．apples；oranges C．oranges；roses B．oranges；apples D．algae；wheat
[解析] 从第二段最后可知，长根的植物比结种的植物要早，因 此选 D 项。 [答案] D B Experts have told of their surprise after witnessing a rare “divorce” between a pair of swans at a Gloucestershire wildfowl sanctuary(野禽保护区)． The Bewick’s swans have returned to the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust centre at Slimbridge in winter ， but both have brought new partners. It is only the second time in more than 40 years that a “separation” has been recorded at the centre. It is not unheard of for the birds，which usually mate for life, to find a new mate but it tends to be because one of the pair has died. During the past 4 decades,4,000 pairs of Bewick’s swans have been studied at Slimbridge，with only one previous couple moving on to find new partners. First suspicions of the rare event were raised when male swan
Sarindi turned up in the annual migration (移栖) from Arctic Russia without his partner Saruni but with a new female named Sarind. The pair’s arrival led conservationists(自然环境保护主义者) to fear the worst for Saruni. But shortly afterwards Saruni arrived at the wetlands site—also with a new mate, Surune.And after observing them, the experts discovered the old relationships had ended and new ones had begun. Julia Newth, wildlife health research officer at Slimbridge，said the situation had taken staff by surprise. She said swans tended to have “real loyalties to one another” and long partnerships. “As long as they are both still alive, they will try to stay together. If they have a change of mate it is perhaps because of mortality，not necessarily through choice. ”she said. As for why the previous couple may have seperated，she said， “Failure to breed could be a possible reason，as they had been together for a couple of years but had never brought back a swan baby, but it is difficult to say for sure.” 59 ． Seeing Sarindi came back with a new partner ， experts thought ________. A．Saruni would not return to the same place B．he was thrown over by his old partner C．he would die because of sadness D．his former partner Saruni had died [解析] 细节理解题。从第四段第二句可知专家们想到了最遭的 情况，以为他的配偶死掉了，他才会有新的伴侣。 [答案] D
60．What can be inferred from the passage? A．Experts feel very surprised at the couple’s behavior. B．Experts have been used to the action of swans’ divorcing. C．Swans are probably the most loyal animals in the world. D．The new swan couples will be pushed out from their group. [解析] 推理判断题。从第三段第一句可知科学家们会对这对天 鹅的行为感到非常惊讶，因为非常少见。 [答案] A
61．Which of the following words can take the place of the underlined word in the fifth paragraph? A．death C．diseases B．disasters D．hunger
[解析] 词义猜测题。从第五段第二句和第三句可知天鹅通常只 有在配偶死去时才会重新寻找配偶，所以选择 A 项。 [答案] A
62 ． According to Julia Newth the swan couple separated probably because ________. A．they had the wrong belief that their partner had died B．they couldn’t give birth to their own swan babies C．they didn’t love each other any longer D．they were not used to each other’s living habits [解析] 细节理解题。从最后一段可知专家推测一直未能生育可 能是天鹅离婚的原因，故选择 B 项。 [答案] B C As a result of pollution，Lake Erie，on the borders of the USA
and Canada, is now without any living things. Pollution in water is not simply a matter of “poisons” killing large numbers of fish overnight. Very often the effects of pollution are not noticed for many months or years because the first organism to be affected are either plants or plankton. But these organisms are the food of fish and birds and other creatures. When this food disappears，the fish and birds die too. In this way a whole food chain can be wiped out， and it’s not until dead fish and water birds are seen at the river’s edge or on the seashore that people realize what is happening. Where do the substances which pollute the water come from? There are two main sources of sewage(污水)and industrial waste. As more detergent(洗涤剂)is used in the home, so more of it is finally put into our rivers, lakes and seas. Detergents harm water birds ， dissolving the natural substances which keep their feathers waterproof. Sewage itself, if not properly treated, makes the water dirty and prevents all forms of life in rivers and the sea from receiving the oxygen they need. Industrial waste is even more harmful as there are many highly poisonous things in it，such as copper and lead. So， if we want to stop this pollution， the answer is simple: sewage and industrial waste must be made clear before flowing into the water. It may already be too late to save some rivers and lakes, but others can still be saved if the correct action is taken at once. 63．Pollution of water is noticed ________. A．when the first organisms are affected B．when a good many fish and birds die
C．when poisonous things are poured into water D．as soon as the balance of nature is destroyed [解析] 从第二段可知，人们将有毒物排放到水中，水中的生物 体受影响，鱼、鸟死去，直到这时人们才意识到，因此选 B 项。 [答案] B
64．Which of the following is harmful according to the passage? A．Organisms. B．Plants and plankton in the water. C．Waste water from cleaning. D．Industrial waste made clear before flowing into the water. [解析] 文中多次提到生活污水、家用洗涤剂的污染。 [答案] C
65．The way to stop water pollution is to ________. A．realize the serious situation clearly B．put oxygen into the river C．make the waste material harmless before flowing into the water D．make special room in the sea for our rubbish [解析] 光意识到污染还不行，必须行动，最后一段说必须将污 水作无害处理。 [答案] C D “The noise made by boats of whale watching tourists may be causing communication problems for the animals, ”British researchers said last week. Whale watching is a popular tourist activity in places where
groups of killer whales(虎鲸)live. Every day，dozens of boats filled with tourists go to watch the beautiful animals. Unfortunately, the engines of the boats make a lot of noise, and that may be causing problems for the whales, according to a report in the US science magazine Nature. The whales travel in groups, and communicate with each other through sonic(声波的)calls that some scientists refer to as singing. The sounds of the boat engines may be creating too much background noise for the whales to be able to hear each other. The researchers listened to recordings of whale calls made between 15 and 25 years ago, before whale watching became popular. These were compared to more recent recordings. They found that the animals have started to sing for longer than they used to，like a person shouting to a friend across a noisy room. It is believed that the whales are trying to communicate hunting or breeding information. Scientists said that, if this is prevented, the future of the world’s whale population could be in danger. “Animals become slow in mind and repeat themselves in noisy areas，”said Volker Deecke, a Canadian biologist. “They have to say things twice or three times in order to be understood. ” The killer whales studied were living off the coast of northwestern America. The number of killer whales in this area has been falling for several years, but scientists are not sure why. 66．What does the underlined word in Paragraph 6 mean? A．Singing to other. C．Caring about the old. B．Producing young. D．Hunting for food.
事 情 被阻 止 的话， 世 界上 鲸 的数量 将 会处 于 危险中 ， 因此 推断 breeding 指的是“繁殖”。 [答案] B
67．The passage mainly tells us ________. A．the problems of whale watching B．how killer whales communicate with each other C．the reduced population of killer whales caused by whale watching D ． hearing problems of the killer whales caused by whale watching [解析] 主旨大意题。文章讲述了观鲸船的噪音给虎鲸的信息交 流造成了麻烦。 [答案] D
68 ． Now in a noisy background, the killer whales have to ________. A．sing in a louder voice C．travel in smaller groups B．sing longer D．get nearer to each other
[解析] 细节理解题。由第五段可知，因为受噪音干扰，现在虎 鲸“唱”的时间比原来长。 [答案] B
69．Scientists believe that killer whales sing to ________. A．warn each other of dangers B．keep in the same group C．send useful information D．enjoy themselves [解析] 细节理解题。由倒数第三段可知，虎鲸“唱歌”是为了
