Unit2 Ⅰ.阅读理解


A Eating foods high in trans fats(反式脂肪) and saturated (饱和的) fats increases the risk of depression,according to a Spanish study,confirming previous stud

ies that linked “junk food” with the disease.Researchers also showed that some products,such as olive oil,can fight against the risk of mental illness. Authors of the wide?reaching study,from the universities of Navarra and Las Palmas, followed and analyzed the diet and lifestyle of over 12,000 volunteers over six years.When the study began, none of the participants had been diagnosed with depression; by the end, 657 of them were new sufferers. “Participants with an increased consumption of trans fats presented up to a 48 percent increase in the risk of depression when they were compared to participants who did not consume these fats, ”the head study author said.“The more trans fats were consumed,the greater harmful effect they produced on the volunteers.” The research team found,at the same time,that after assessing the effect of polyunsaturated fats made up of larger amounts of fish and vegetable oils and olive oil,these products are associated with a lower risk of suffering depression. The report, published in the online journal PLOS ONE, noted the research was performed on a European population that enjoys a relatively low intake of trans fats-making up only 0.4 percent of the total energy taken in by the volunteers.“Despite this,we observed an increase in the risk of suffering depression of nearly 50 percent, ”said researcher Miguel Martinez.“On this basis we think it of great importance to take this effect into account in countries like the United States,where the percentage of energy derived from these fats is around 2.5 percent.” The report pointed out that the current number of depression sufferers in the world is around 150 million people,and has increased in recent years.This rise is attributable,according to the authors, to great changes in the sources of fats consumed in western diets, where we have replaced certain types of beneficial fats in nuts,vegetable oils and fish with the saturated and trans fats found in meats,butter and other products such as mass?produced cakes and fast food. 【文章大意】 本文主要讲述了吃含有极高反式脂肪和饱和脂肪的垃圾食品会增加患抑 郁症的几率。 1.Which of the following increases the risk of suffering depression? A.Fish. B.Vegetable oils. C.Olive oil. D.Butter. 解析: 选 D。 细节理解题。 根据第四段和最后一段中的“beneficial fats in nuts, vegetable oils and fish with the saturated and trans fats found in meats, butter and other products” 可知应选 D。 2.The study tells us that________. A.2.5% Americans suffer mental illness B.12,000 volunteers from Navarra took part C.a minority of participants became new sufferers D.150 million Europeans enjoy a healthier lifestyle 解析:选 C。细节理解题。从第二段第一句中的“over 12,000 volunteers”及第二句中 的“by the end,657 of them were new sufferers”可知,C 项正确。

3.The underlined word “derived” in Paragraph 5 is closest in meaning to “________”. A.obtained B.chosen C.separated D.preserved 解析: 选 A。 词义猜测题。 根据画线词所在句及该段中的“making up only 0.4 percent of the total energy taken in by the volunteers”可知, 这里指的是美国人从反式脂肪中获得的能量的比 率大约是 2.5%。obtained 与 derived 同义,故选 A 项。 4.More and more westerners are suffering depression because________. A.they have less time for exercise B.they eat more nuts,vegetable oils and fish C.the sources of fats in their diets have changed D.less meat,butter,and cakes are included in their diets 解析:选 C。细节理解题。根据最后一段的第二句可知,这种增长归因于西方饮食中脂 肪来源的很大改变,在这些来源中,我们已经用肉、黄油以及其他产品诸如大批量生产的蛋 糕和快餐中的反式脂肪和饱和脂肪代替了坚果、植物油和鱼肉中的有益脂肪。故选 C 项。 B

When it comes to success in business and success in life,there are few qualities as important as confidence. People naturally have different levels of confidence.Some have a higher level of confidence than others do,but even those whose confidence is lacking can learn to build their level of confidence and reach their most important goals.Increasing self?confidence is one of the most common reasons people give for seeking the help of psychologists and other professionals. One of the many places where a greater level of confidence is useful is in the workplace.We all know how difficult it can be,for instance,to ask the boss for a raise.This process can be extremely difficult for those who lack confidence in their own abilities.After all,if you are unsure about your own abilities,how will you ever convince your boss that you deserve more money for the work you do? Even if you are not asking for that big raise,having plenty of confidence in your abilities is important to success.If you are certain of your abilities,chances are that those around you, whether they are your coworkers, your colleagues or your superiors, will see that confidence, and that will help to assure them that you are the best at what you do. Being thought of as the person to go to,and being seen as an expert in your chosen field,is naturally very important to success on the job.If you can make yourself the person people go to for guidance and advice,you will help to protect yourself from the ever present danger of downsizing (裁员).After all,if you are a recognized expert in the office,you will be regarded as an indispensable member of the team. Having a high level of confidence, after all, does not mean overlooking the places where you could improve.Knowing what you do well and where you need help will help you enjoy increased success and confidence. 【文章大意】 本文是一篇议论文,主要讲述了自信对于成功的重要性。

5.What is the passage mainly about? A.The influence of confidence on one’s life. B.The difference of people’s confidence. C.The importance of confidence to success. D.The judgment on one’s confidence. 解析:选 C。主旨大意题。通读全文可知,文章第一段给出了中心论点,即自信对于成 功非常重要,以下几段是从不同的方面论证这一观点。故选 C。 6.Psychologists and other professionals can offer help to those________. A.who dream to be recognized experts B.who expect to give guidance to others C.who want to ask the boss for a raise D.who think their goals are hard to reach 解析:选 D。推理判断题。根据第二段的内容可知,心理学家或者其他的专业人员可以 为那些自信心不强的人(即认为自己的目标很难实现的人)提供帮助。故选 D。 7.What does the underlined word “indispensable” in Paragraph 5 probably mean? A.Outgoing. B.Attractive. C.Important. D.Energetic. 解析:选 C。词义猜测题。根据倒数第二段的内容可知,拥有自信在工作中很重要,你 会被同事认为是团队中“不可缺少的”一名成员, 因此 indispensible 与 C 项的意义相近。 故 选 C。 8.What message does the author want to convey(传递)in the last paragraph? A.To overlook one’s disadvantages. B.To make full use of one’s advantages. C.To have great confidence in one’s abilities. D.To make objective evaluations of one’s abilities. 解析:选 D。推理判断题。最后一段是说:拥有较高的自信并不是说忽略自己进步的空 间, 知道自己什么地方擅长同时又知道自己什么地方还有待提高, 对于成功和自信来说是很 有帮助的。因此,作者在此想要表达的是,要对自己的能力做出客观的评价,要有正确的认 识。故选 D。 Ⅱ.语法填空 Lee’s birthday is coming.His friends are preparing a surprise party for him.
