One of my earliest memories was standing without shoes in the freshly tilled（翻耕的）soil, my hands blackened from digging in the ground. As a child, I loved following Dad around in the garden. I remember Dad pushing the tiller（耕 作机）ahead in perfectly straight lines. Dad loved growing all sorts of things: yellow and green onions, watermelons almost as big as me, rows of yellow corn, and our favorite— red tomatoes. As I grew into a teenager, I didn't get so excited about gardening with Dad. Instead of magical land of possibility, it had turned into some kind of prison. As Dad grew older, his love for gardening never disappeared. After all the kids were grown and had started families of their own, Dad turned to gardening like never before, Even when he had cancer, he still took care of his garden. But then, the cancer, bit by bit, destroyed his body. I had to do the things he used to do. What really convinced me was the state of his garden, that year when Dad was dying. The rows and rows of multicolored vegetables were gone. Too weak to work, he simply let them be. He only planted, tomatoes. For the first few years after he died, I couldn't even bear to look at anyone's garden without strong memories pouring over me like cold water. Three years ago, I decided to plant my own garden and started out with just a few tomatoes. That morning, after breaking up a fair amount

C Chinese Dinner Table Of course, the main difference on the Chinese dinner table is chopsticks instead of knife and fork, but that's only on the surface. Besides, in proper restaurants, you can always ask for a pair of knife and fork, if you find the chopsticks not helpful enough. The real difference is that in the West, you have your own plate of food, while in China the dishes are placed on the table sad everyone shares. If you are being treated to a formal dinner and particularly if the host thinks. you're in the country for the first time, he will do the best to give you a taste of many different types of dishes. The meal usually begins with a set of at least four cold dishes, to be followed by the main courses of hot meat and vegetable dishes. Soup then will he served（unless in Guangdong style restaurants） to be followed by staple food （主食） ranging from rice, noodles to dumplings. If you wish to have your rice to go with other dishes, you should say so in good time, for most of the
第 7 页 共 18 页
Chinese choose to have the staple food at last or have none of them at all. Perhaps one of the things that surprises a western visitor moat is that some of the Chinese hosts like to put food into the plates of their guests. In formal dinners, there are always public chopsticks and spoons for this purpose, but some hosts may use their own chopsticks. This is a sign of friendship and politeness. It is always polite to eat the food. If you do not eat it, just leave the food in the plate. People in China tend to over-order food, for they will find it embarrassing if all the food is consumed. When you have had enough, just say so. Or you will always overeat! 63. The real difference on dinner table between China and West is that A. you're treated to a formal dinner for the first time. B. on Chinese dinner table, chopsticks replace knife and fork. C. the host will do the best to give you a taste of many different types of dishes. D. you have your own plate of food in West while in China everyone shares the dishes. 64.

A. badc B. cabd C. bdac . D. cdab .

66. According to the passage, the author's attitude towards Chinese dinner table is A. critical B. objective C. negative D D. positive
It is quite reasonable to blame traffic jams, the cost of gas and the great speed of modern life, but manners on the road are becoming horrible. Everybody knows that the nicest men would become fierce tigers behind the wheel. It is all right to have a tiger in a cage, but to have one in the driver's seat is another matter. Road politeness is not only good manners, but good sense. It takes the most cool-headed drivers great patience to give up the desire to beat back when forced to face rude driving. On the other hand, a little politeness goes a long way towards reducing the possibility of quarrelling and fighting. A friendly nod or a wave, of thanks in answer to an act of politeness helps to create an atmosphere of good will and becomes so necessary in modern traffic conditions. But such
第 8 页 共 18 页
behaviors of politeness are by no means enough. Many drivers nowadays don't even seem able to recognize politeness when they see it. However, misplaced politeness can also be dangerous. Typical examples are the driver who waves a child crossing the street at a wrong place into the path of oncoming cars that may not be able to stop in time. The same goes for encouraging old ladies to cross the road wherever and whenever they want to. An experienced driver, whose manners are faultless, told me it would help if drivers learnt to correctly join in traffic stream without causing total jams that give rise to unpleasant feelings. Unfortunately, modern drivers can't even learn to drive, let alone master the roadmanship（驾车 技能）. Years ago, experts warned us that the fast increase of the car ownership would demand more give-and-take from all road users. It is high time for all of us to take this message to heart. 67. What's the best little of the passage above? A. Road Politeness C. Good Manners 68. Troubles on the road are often caused by A. great speed C. terrible road conditions 69. According to the writer, a good driver should A. beat back when forced to face rude driving B. be able to recognize politeness when he sees it C. join in traffic stream quickly however other people feel D. encourage children to cross the roads whenever they want to 70. It is not always right for drivers to A. master roadmanship B. create atmosphere of good will C. encourage old ladies to cross the road D. give a friendly nod to show politeness 第二节（共 5 小题；每小题 2 分，共 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。 How Can I Fight Laziness? Lazy people will never achieve anything in life. However, laziness can be defeated once a few changes have been made in your mind. 71 Many people lack sleep constantly, since they stay up too late and get up too . B. traffic jams D. the behaviors of the drivers . B. Traffic Jams D. Modern Drivers .
early to prepare for work. These people have little motivation once they arrive home. Laziness works hand in hand with a lack of motivation and a tendency to put off things. By adjusting your
第 9 页 共 18 页
sleep schedule to provide a few more hours of meaningful rest, you can fight laziness throughout the day. Another way to fight laziness is to change your mind from passive to active. Some people treat their lives as if they were pushed from task to task. Others take a more proactive approach, viewing each task as a challenge they must overcome alone. 72
Some people fight laziness by removing the temptations（诱惑）that surround them. A television in the living room may provide entertainment, but watching too much TV often contributes to laziness. 73 Complete a few tasks and reward yourself with what you enjoy,
such as a good dinner or a film. Laziness can also be a lasting problem at home. Couples and children may all have different energy levels, but laziness can be spread if not dealt with immediately. 74 Be the first to
collect and wash dishes after a meal. Others in the home may eventually follow your example and perform their own task. It is difficult to practise laziness when you are surrounded by motivated people. 75 Enough exercise and a balanced diet can help you to develop a healthy lifestyle,
thus enabling you to have more energy and help lift your spirits. A. To fight family laziness, set an example. B. Knowing how to fight laziness is important. C. One way to fight laziness is to get enough sleep. D. Finally, taking exercise regularly can help you fight laziness. E. With strong determination, you will be able to achieve your goal. F. Laziness sets in when you no longer feel in charge of your own life. G. Create a reward system for yourself, just as parents do for the children.

（四）One possible version: Last Saturday, my friends and I went to climb the West Mountain. While climbing, we enjoyed the sunny weather and a beautiful view. We were very delighted to reach the top without much time or effort. However, we found it more difficult to go down, so we went slowly and helped each other when necessary. Though I took care a lot, unfortunately I slipped and hurt my leg badly and could hardly stood up. One of my friends came to me immediately and carried me on the back till we reached the foot of the mountain. I was very thankful and felt proud of having such good friends.
