These trips weren’t the 36 vacations that last for roughly two weeks and 37 hurrying from one destination to the next. 38 , I was completely absorbed in the culture, staying in both Indonesia and China for approximately 6 weeks. After two continuous years of 39 to the Asian countries, however, I’m staying at home. My desire to travel, 40 , makes me incredibly impulsive （冲动的） .

I was soon entering the real world, but I had one last summer that see-sawed in between the real world and the world my 48 and I had just left. I had one last summer to make memories with high school friends that I 49 recall during old age. 50 , I am pleased to say I have found a job this summer. I work at the Seneca Hill Animal Hospital and Resort where I look after dogs whose owners have left for summer vacation. The work may be hard, but at least I’m 51 . All in all, life at home so far has not been all that 52 . I’m spending time with old friends, and earning for myself.

56. Which buttons directly control the movement of the Rocket Ball? A. LAUNCH and FLIPPERS B. STAR and FLIPPERS C. START/PAUSE and FLIPPERS D. LAUNCH and SELECT 57. The most action-packed variation would be__________. A. Game One with a blue star B. Game Two with a black star C. Game One with a yellow star D. Game Two with a red star 58. Rocket Ball could best be described as a game of__________. A. space voyage B. quick response C. skills & strength D. scientific knowledge B The Harry Potter author JK Rowling has shared some rejection letters publishers sent to her alter ego Robert Galbraith, in an effort to comfort aspiring authors. Rowling posted the letters on Twitter after a request from a fan. They related to The Cuckoo’s Calling, her first novel as Galbraith. But Rowling also saw Harry Potter turned down several times before the boy wizard became one of the greatest phenomena in children’s literature, with sales of more than 400m copies worldwide. Asked how she kept motivated, she tweeted: ―I had nothing to lose and sometimes that makes you brave enough to try.‖ When she pitched under the name Galbraith without revealing her true identity, she faced many more snubs. Since then, Galbraith has published three successful novels but the first was rejected by several publishers, and Rowling was even advised to take a writing course. Rowling erased the signatures when she posted the letters online, saying her motive was ―inspiration not revenge‖. She did not reveal the full text of the most brutal brush-off, which came by email from one of the publishers who had also rejected Harry Potter. Rowling said she could not share the Potter rejections because they ―are now in a box in my attic‖ before offering the Galbraith letters. The kindest and most detailed rejection came from Constable & Robinson, who – despite the advice about a writing course – included helpful tips on how to pitch to a publisher (―as on book jackets – don’t give away the ending!‖). The publisher added: ―I regret that we have reluctantly come to the conclusion that we could not publish it without commercial success.‖ The short note
from publishers Crè me de la Crime said the firm had become part of another publishing group and was not accepting new submissions. When The Cuckoo’s Calling eventually found a publisher in 2013, it was achieving respectable sales before the secret of its authorship broke, and it then shot to the top of the bestseller lists. Joanne Harris, author of a string of hit novels, joined the Twitter discussion to say she had so many rejections for her 1999 book Chocolat, later adapted as a Hollywood movie, that she had piled them up and ―made a sculpture‖. Rowling, Harris and their literary disciples are in excellent company. Eimear McBride, the 2014 Bailey’s prizewinner for her first novel A Girl is a Half-formed Thing, accumulated a drawer full of rejection letters before a chance conversation led to her book being published by Galley Beggar, a tiny independent publisher in Norwich. 59. Which of the following is the name of a prize for fiction? A. Robert Galbraith. B. Chocolat. C. Bailey’s D. Crè me de la Crime 60. JK Rowling’s novels were rejected for the following reasons EXCEPT that _________. A. the writer needs to learn some techniques about how to write B. books are meant to be published for bringing in money C. the publisher for the time being denies new submissions D. those that can be adapted for movies are worth considering 61. Why did JK Rowling post some rejection letters on the Twitter? A. To inform readers that hardships make a man stronger. B. To inspire ambitious writers never to give up halfway. C. To take her revenge on those publishers who ever rejected her. D. To carry out an academic discussion with other fellow writers.
C Two things that Starbucks has discovered about mothers: first, our bodies are 90 per cent made up of milky coffee, which requires constant refilling; and second, we very much want to be wanted. Hence, its new ―parent-friendly‖ pledge. With the help of the National Childbirth Trust, baristas at more than 800 Starbuck outlets around Britain are being trained in how to handle tired and emotional parents. Breastfeeding will be encouraged; bottles will be warmed on request; high chairs and changing tables will be supplied in abundance; there will even be emergency nappies on hand, for when your baby’s having one of those hundred-poo days and you only packed supplies for 99. ―It’s important that parents feel reassured they have the support of staff and won’t be judged,‖ says an NCT spokeswoman. In return for these efforts, Starbucks branches will be able to display a special NCT window sticker bearing the logo: ―Parent Friendly Place.‖ This has the double advantage of implying that other cafes, lacking the official sticker, might be Parent Unfriendly, or at least a little Parent Standoffish. And indeed, some are. Who can blame them? Where there are parents, there are children – crying, running about, pouring out salt into little mounds, sucking their fingers and then sticking them in the sugar bowl. On the other hand, there’s always money to be made from society’s desperate. Catering to parents, literally or figuratively, makes sense for those businesses already paying rents on the high street. It brings in customers all through the day, instead of just at lunch and supper. Cinemas have cottoned onto this too: the big chains have all introduced daytime ―parent and baby‖ screenings, where you and your screaming bundle
of reflux can pretend to watch a whole grown-up film and no one is allowed to tut. Even the swankiest restaurants are getting in on the act. The Michelin-starred Pollen Street Social in London, and the equally feted Delaware and Hudson in New York, have both hosted ―dining clubs for mothers‖. You take your child along with you to eat posh food from posh plates, and pretend the last two years of living off cold fish fingers and squirts of Ella’s Kitchen straight from the sachet were just a bad dream. There is, I can’t help feeling, something slightly depressed about all this. Why are we so reluctant to give up our old habits? Is it because so many of us come to motherhood late, by which time our habits have come to define us? I remember, soon after having my first child, fretting that I had ―lost myself‖, as if I’d left my ID somewhere along with my car keys. I tried all sorts of things to recover it: spa weekends with girlfriends, date nights with the husband, writing book proposals in a vain attempt to restart my ambition. But, after eight years and two more children, I have come to realise – you can’t ever get your old life back. It’s no use looking for it in restaurants and cinemas and down the back of the sofa. That person – the one who could leave the house without having to hire someone to take her place, and gossip at leisure without being tugged at on all sides by tiny, insistent hands, like a bosomy, Breton-striped Gulliver – is no more. And the strangest thing is, you don’t even miss her. 62. How do you understand the sentence ―We very much want to be wanted" in the first paragraph? A. Mothers want society to be considerate of the uniqueness of their identity. B. Mothers hope to get rid of traditional roles and go to work. C. Mothers expect their kids to think of them frequently when they grow up. D. Mothers desire to have the same social position as men. 63. Which of the following measures is used to attract mothers to restaurants? A. Some businesses pay rents on the high street. B. Free spa weekends and date nights are provided for them. C. They can enjoy cold fish fingers and squirts of Ella’s kitchen in restaurants.
D. Dining clubs are hosted and nappies are even supplied on request.
64. Which of the following has the closest meaning to the underlined phrase ―getting in on the act‖? A. responding accordingly B. joining the lineup of business C. taking the critical attitude D. preventing the act happening 65. Which is the best title for the passage? A. Mother’s New Appeal: Cozier Life B. A Study on Mothers’ Likings and Dislikings C. Easy Money from New Parents D. On Restaurants’ Marketing Strategies D In the film The Revenant the Leonardo DiCaprio adventure takes the basic facts of real-life frontiersman Hugh Glass's sufferings and adds extra characters, extra ultra violence and more horse guts. Hugh Glass was a frontiersman working in the upper Missouri river area in the early years of the 19th century. On a fur trapping expedition in 1823, he was attacked and injured by a grizzly bear. 1. _____________
Hugh Glass (Leonardo DiCaprio) is one of a group of men finishing up a fur trapping expedition in the wilderness. They are attacked by Ree (Arikara) warriors. Whoosh！ Someone gets impaled on a spear. Bang！ Someone gets shot off his horse. Crack！ Someone's bones shatter. There's a fearless close-up of an arrow thwacking into a face, a gun butt bashing into a face, a flying kick to a face. A horse gets shot in the face. It's exceptionally well choreographed (取景) and filmed. This scene is based on a real-life incident: In June 1823, Ashley's band of around 70 men was attacked by Arikara warriors –they estimated around 600, though in the film it's more like a dozen. 2. Characters In the film, 10 men get away. Fitzgerald is fighty and racist, so he's the bad guy. Glass is the good guy, because he loves his son (who is half-Pawnee) in a gruff, manly way that involves telling him off a lot. The back story about Glass’s love for a Pawnee woman is fiction. It has been suggested the real Glass had such a relationship, but there's no firm evidence –and no evidence that he had any children. 3. Wildlife As the men make their way through a forest, Glass happens upon two bear cubs and their angry mama. If you felt pale after the face-smashing scene at the start, reach for the smelling salts. Chomp！ Growl！ Shake！ The bear sniffs him to see if he's dead, then jumps up and down on his back. Splinter！ Howl！ Slash！ Glass shoots the bear. Anyway, while historians are not certain of the precise details, the real Glass did get into a fight with a real bear, sometime in August 1823. 4. Murder The men find Glass in a rum old state. Captain Henry pays Fitzgerald, Bridger and Hawk to stay behind until it is time for Glass's inevitable burial. When the captain leaves, Fitzgerald tries to bump Glass off. Hawk interrupts, so Fitzgerald bumps him off instead. This didn't happen in real life, because Hawk didn't exist. In the film, the weak Glass sees Fitzgerald kill his son, giving him an extra motivation to stay alive and seek revenge. 5. Survival The real Glass survived his abandonment and dragged his battered body over hundreds of miles of terrain in pursuit of the men who left him for dead. Though he could read and write, Glass never set his story down in his own hand. It was first published by another writer in a Philadelphia journal in 1825. It may well have been modified then. It has been modified many times since. 6. Hardship The film has invented some extra obstacles for Glass: it is snowing throughout, even though in real life his trek took place between August and October; the Arikara track him and chase him into a tree; he has to hollow out a dead horse to make himself a sleeping bag. As for the ending, it has been changed in one significant way: in real life, nobody got killed. 66. We can know for sure after reading the passage that real Hugh Glass _____. A. finally survived for he was determined to take revenge on Fitzgerald killing Hawk B. fell in love with a Pawnee woman and soon after they had a clever and brave boy C. wrote nothing about his suffering despite the fact that he was actually educated D. nearly got killed by Fitzgerald and Hawk under the instruction of Captain Henry 67. To play the role of Hugh Glass, Leonardo DiCaprio must have ______. A. fought against three bears courageously B. walked in snow with great difficulty C. rode a horse time and time again D. grasped skills for surviving in the wild 68. Which of the following can be the best subtitle for the 4th and 5th paragraphs? A. Violence B. Setting C. Horror D. Special effects
69. We can see here and there in the passage that the writer thinks of the movie as a _____ adaptation. A. faithful B. disappointing C. successful D. heartless 70. The passage is intended to inform readers _____. A. how tragic Hugh Glass's experience is B. how well Leonardo DiCaprio performs in The Revenant C. how bloody the movie The Revenant is D. how historically accurate The Revenant is
第四部分 任务型阅读 (共 10 小题，每小题 1 分，满分 10 分)
请认真阅读下列短文，并根据所读内容在文章后表格中的空格里填入一个最恰当的单词。注意: 请将答案写在答题卡上相应题号的横线上。每个空格只填一个单词。 In a study just published in the journal Intelligence, using search terms such as ―stupid thing to do‖, Balazs Aczel and his colleagues compiled a collection of stories describing stupid mistakes from sources such as The Huffington Post and TMZ. The researchers then had a sample of university students rate each story on the responsibility of the people involved, the influence of the situation, the seriousness of the consequences, and other factors. Analyses of the subjects’ ratings revealed three varieties of stupid mistakes. The first is when a person’s confidence goes beyond their skill, as when a Pittsburgh man robbed two banks in broad daylight without wearing a disguise, believing that lemon juice he had rubbed on his face would make him invisible to security cameras. The confidence-skill disconnection has been named the Dunning-Kruger effect, after a study by social psychologists David Dunning and Justin Kruger. Dunning and Kruger had Cornell undergraduates perform tests of humor, logic, and grammar, and then rate how well they think they performed compared to other subjects in the study. The worst performing subjects, whose scores put them in the 12th percentile, estimated that they had performed in the 62nd percentile. Summarizing the findings, Dunning noted, ―Poor performers—and we are all poor performers at some things—fail to see the flaws in their thinking or the answers they lack.‖ When we think we are at our best is sometimes when we are at our objective worst. As any number of political scandals illustrate, the second type of stupid mistake involves impulsive acts—when we seem unable to keep our behavior in check. In the scandal that became known as Weinergate, former U.S. representative Anthony Weiner sent blue texts and pictures of himself to women he met on Facebook. (After resigning, Weiner continued his cyber-dalliances, and then fell prey to the Dunning-Kruger effect when he overestimated his support in the 2013 New York City mayoral primary; he received 5% of the vote.) The final variety of stupid mistake involves failing to concentrate—Homer Simpsonesque D’oh moments. As arguably the best example from American sports history, in the 1929 Rose Bowl, University of California star Roy Riegels recovered a fumble(失误球) and returned it 65 yards the wrong way. Riegel’s mistake set up a safety for Georgia Tech, which turned out to be the deciding factor in the opponent’s victory. Aczel and colleagues’ analyses revealed that subjects viewed this category of stupid mistake as the least stupid. It is, of course, unrealistic to think that we could ever eliminate human error. To err will always be human. However, this research gives us a better description of our failings and weaknesses, and a place to start in thinking about interventions and prescriptions to help us err less. This research also reminds us of our shared human weaknesses. We all tend to overestimate our abilities, to make impulsive decisions, and to fail
to keep attention. This simple realization makes stupid mistakes seem, perhaps, a little less stupid — and a little more human. Title: Why you make breathtakingly stupid mistakes 71. __________ of the research ? ? ? Compiling stories about stupid mistakes from some sources. Rating the stories on the factors like responsibilities, influence, etc. 72. __________ how the subjects rate the stories. ? Confidence-skill disconnection ? Types of stupid mistakes ? Impulsive acts It happens when confidence 73. __________ skill. Eg. A man rubbing lemon juice on his face robbed banks by 74. __________ his head in the sand like an ostrich（鸵鸟）. The outcome may be just the 75.__________ when we overestimate our skills. We cannot put our behavior under 76. __________. Eg. Weiner disturbed women by sending blue texts and picture, which put him at a disadvantage in mayoral primary. Though viewed as the least stupid, it can be a deciding factor in many cases. Eg. Roy Riegel’s running the wrong way with a fumble 78. __________ for Georgia Tech winning the game.
? 77. __________ of attention ? ? ?
Value of research
Providing us with a clear image of our failings and weaknesses. Helping us err less 79. __________ we are unlikely to stay away from error. Enabling us to evaluate our abilities objectively, make rational decisions and always get 80. __________.

81. 请阅读下面文字及图表, 并按照要求用英语写一篇 150 词左右的文章。 "Please put your phone down Daddy, we haven't finished the story!" Hearing these heartfelt words from my four year old daughter was an uncomfortable wake up call. How had I let the shiny electronic box in my hand take so much of my attention that it could even interrupt a short bedtime story with my precious children? It's no exaggeration to suggest that our mobile devices are in danger of taking over our entire lives. Time magazine found that 68% of users take their devices to bed with them, 20% check their phones every ten minutes and one third report feelin78g anxious when briefly separated from their beloved gadget. According to Osterman research, 79% of respondents take their work-related device on vacation and 33% admit to hiding from family and friends in order to check Facebook and Twitter. It's hard to deny that these are worrying trends.

Favorable opinions as there are, the majority of Americans today view technology as hazardous. (31 words) 【选“是” 】 However, no pains, no gains. The world evolves as human technology leaps forward, along whose process there is bound to be sacrifices. The definition of happiness may vary, but a more connected, convenient, and creative society is undeniably nothing a modern man wouldn’t have desired. With digital devices booming around, we are given so many choices that our minds have been freed to a degree our ancestors could never anticipated. That being said, to make sure technology doesn’t get in the way, you need to unplug from the information highway and share your journey with your family and friends from time to time. A balance between man and computers will lead to an ultimate happiness. (115 words) 【选“否” 】 True, a high-tech world seems a new Eden, but it won’t last any longer than the old one. Putting down their phones, lifting up their misty eyes, and waking up at night, people suddenly realize that, with all their family living by, they are alone. Children forgot how and why they should return their parents’ love because it were never given; classic literature is left rotten on the shelves because no one bothers to look away from their screen. To stop yourself getting ―high‖ instead of ―happy‖, read a book, go outdoors, or simply pay a visit to your parents. There are things to pursue in life other than thumbing up tweets. Enjoy a tech-free day and see what real happiness means. (122 words)

Text 4 W: I’m sorry to call so early, but I wanted to let you know I’ve come down with something and won’t be able to come into work today. I should be fine by tomorrow afternoon. M: No problem. We’re having an office party tomorrow night, so I hope you’re well enough to come! (4) Text 5 W: Bradley, this coffee tastes a little strange. What did you put in it? M: It’s actually what I didn’t put in it, Rachel! We consume away too much sweet stuff these days. (5) It’s time for us to get back to natural flavors, don’t you think? Text 6 W: I’m here to pick up the flowers for Anna. M: I’m sorry, but those won’t be ready for another two hours. (6) W: She’s getting married in two hours! I need time to bring them back so that I can set them up before the guests come. (6) (7) M: We haven’t even started putting them together yet. We told you on the phone they’d be ready by noon. It’s only 10:00. (7) W: Is there another flower company that can deliver them in the next thirty minutes? M: I doubt it. Flower companies don’t normally do rush orders. Text 7 W: It’s nice and quiet out here in the countryside. M: My grandpa used to take me fishing here when I was five. W: My parents never took me anywhere when I was little. I guess we went to Los Angeles to visit my aunt and uncle a few times when I was in sixth and seventh grade. (8) But other than that, we just stayed at home. M: It’s important to slow down and breathe some fresh air once in a while. W: Absolutely. So, what’s the plan for the rest of the day? M: I figured we could go hiking and then have a picnic on the top of the hill. (9) W: Awesome! (9) Text 8
M: So, what do you want to study when you go to college, Megan? W: I’m not sure, Mr. Sanders. My dad would be excited if I studied medicine, but that sounds too difficult. I’ve always been interested in art, but I’m not sure if I want to be a professional artist. M: Well, you could study art history. That was my wife’s major, you know. W: Really? What did you major in? M: Oh, I always wanted to be a businessman, so that’s what I did in college. (10) It’s not for everyone, but I liked it. I wish I had taken some other classes, though. If you have a chance to learn about a bunch of different things and then make a decision, I think that would be your best bet. (12) W: That’s good advice, Mr. Sanders. Thanks! M: My pleasure. If you want to talk more, come next door anytime you want. (11) W: I sure will. Thank you! Text 9 M: OK, your bill comes to thirty-six dollars. W: Well, I never carry cash on me any more. Can I just Venmo it to you?(13) M: What does that mean? W: Venmo is an app that you download for your smartphone. (13) It connects to your bank or a credit card, and you can transfer money to other people in about ten seconds. M: What? That’s fast! I’ve used PayPal before, but it sometimes takes several minutes for the transfer to be completed. (14) Plus, they charge you a fee for sending the money. W: Venmo is free if you use a checking account. But if you use a credit card, I think they charge you a small fee. M: That’s cool. I never use my credit card, anyway. So, what can I do with the money once it’s there? Can I use Venmo at stores? W: You still can’t use it at most restaurants and big chain stores, but a lot of smaller shops accept it. (15) It’s getting more popular all the time. M: All right, how can I sign up for Venmo? W: Download the app from the App Store, and I’ll email you an invitation to join. (16) Text 10 Good morning! I’m Samuel Davis, and this is the ten o’clock news report. I hope everyone is having a fine Monday morning. It’s getting pretty wet out there, so grab an umbrella and stay dry! (17) I’m here today with Matt Miller, who has completed his 29,000-mile journey in just six weeks, with a total of 180 hours in flight. Beginning in California, he made twenty-five stops in fourteen different countries including England, Italy, Greece, Egypt, and Thailand. (18) His final trip was a sixteen-hour flight from Hawaii back to California, just half an hour less than his longest flight from Samoa to Hawaii. (19) Born in South Dakota, Matt is a freshman at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and has said that as a child he was scared of flying. All of that changed when he received his pilot license at just seventeen. After that, he only spent a few years planning everything out before beginning his journey around the world. Matt is here with us today for an interview. Welcome Matt! First, why don’t you tell all our listeners about the craziest thing you saw during your adventure? (20)
