When they saw their baby, they both cried out, “My goodness! How small it is! It’s hairless and toothless! It’s a monster!” They sent for all the doctors in the country and ordered them to prepare some medicine for her. “When she drinks your medicine, she must grow to the right size and have hair and teeth,” the king said, “If you don’t do this, you’ll have a beating.” The doctors thought it impossible, but they dared not say anything against the king’s order. Just then an old doctor stepped forward. “Oh, we shall certainly obey your order,” he said, “but it takes time. We have to dig a mineral from the Kunlun Mountains when the snow melts for the second time. The snow melts on those mountains only once in six years. So we need twelve years.” At last the king agreed and the doctors took away the little princess. On her twelfth birthday, they brought her back to her parents with long black hair and beautiful teeth. The king and queen were very happy and gave the doctors expensive presents. 19. Which of the following words can not describe the baby ______. A. toothless B. hairless C. unusual D. small 20. The doctors would be beaten if ______. A. the baby daughter didn’t drink their medicine B. they obey the king’s order C. the baby daughter grew to the right size D. the baby daughter remained a monster 21. The old doctor wanted to keep the king’s daughter for twelve years because ______. A. they needed a lot of different plants B. they need a lot of different minerals C. this would give the baby time to grow up D. they had to dig a mineral when the snow me lted for the second time 22. ______ the king wouldn’t have given them expensive presents. A. If doctors had brought back a beautiful girl B. If the daughter had still been a monster twelve years later C. If the doctors had not been able to prepare the magic medicine D. If the doctors hadn’t found the minerals
C Dreams It’s a fact that we all dream. Some dreams seem to last for hours, others only for seconds. Some of us have strange dreams, some have interesting dreams, and some of us have unpleasant dreams. Tests in the 1980s showed that these dreams occur within 90-minute cycles, each cycle made up of six stages. In the last stage people experience rapid eye movement, known as REM, and it is in this stage that dreaming takes place. Eighty percent of people who were woken during this sixth stage could easily remember their dreams. On the other hand, when during the first five stages (NREM), only seven percent could describe a dream. However, of these same people woken during the first five stages, 74% were able to remember thinking activity, although they would not call it a dream. NerysDee, who has written about dreams in a book called Your Dreams and What They Mean says: “ Perhaps during NREM sleep we are sorting out our outer common problems, but in REM sleep we are dealing with inside matters.” She also makes the following statement about 90-minute cycle: It may also prove the reason why insomniacs who wake in the middle of the night find it impossible to get to sleep again for at least an hour and a half, in other words, until they have missed out one complete 90-minute sleep period. 23. Which of the following statements about dreams is TRUE? A. Everyone dreams but very few can recall what they dream. B. Some people have long dreams and others have very short ones. C. People can only remember unpleasant dreams. D. Only seven percent of people can remember their dreams. 24. According to the tests in the 1980s, dreaming takes place _________. A. between each 90-minute cycle B. in the last stage of 90-minute cycles C. at any time during 90-minute cycles D. during the first five stages of 90-minute cycles 25. People woken during REM sleep can _________. A. partly remember their thinking activity B. hardly remember their dreams C. not remember their dreams D. easily remember their dreams 26. “Insomniacs” are persons who _________. A. can always remember their dreams B. have trouble getting into sleep at night C. experience rapid eye movement D. usually wake after each 90-minute sleep period D People living on part of the south coast of England face a serious problem. In 1993, the owners of a large hotel and several houses discovered that their gardens had disappeared overnight. The sea had eaten into the soft limestone cliffs(石灰 岩峭壁)on which they had been built. While experts were studying the problem, the hotel and several houses disappeared altogether, sliding down the cliff and into the sea. Erosion (侵蚀) of the white cliff along the south coast of England has always
been a problem but it has become more serious in recent years. Dozens of homes have had to be given up as the sea has moved farther and farther inland（内陆）. Experts have studied the most affected areas and have drawn up a map for local people, fore-telling the year in which the hungry sea will swallow up their homes. Angry owners have called on the government to build sea defenses(海防)to protect their homes. Government officials have pointed out that in most cases, this is impossible. New sea walls would cost hundreds of millions of pounds and would only make the waves and currents (水流) go further along the coast, shifting（转移） the problem from one area to another. The danger is likely to continue, they say, until the waves reach an inland area of hard rock which can’ t be eaten as easily as limestone. Meanwhile, if you want to buy a cheap house with an uncertain future, apply to a house agent in one of the threatened areas on the south coast of England. You can get a house for a knock-down price but it may turn out to be a knock-down home. 27. What is the problem that people living on part of the south coast of England face? A. The rising of the sea level. B. The experts’ lack of knowledge. C. The washing-away of limestone cliffs. D. The disappearance of the coast. 28. The erosion(侵蚀)of the white cliffs in the south coast of England _______. A. will soon become a problem for people in the midlands B. has now become a threat to local people C. can be stopped if proper measures are taken D. is changing the map of England 29. The experts’ study on the problem of erosion can ________. A. lead to its solution B. help to find out when the coast will disappear C. provide an effective way to slow it down D. warn people whose homes are in danger 30. It’s impractical( 不实际 ) to build sea defenses to protect against erosion because ________. A. the government is too slow in taking action B. it is too costly and will endanger neighboring areas C. house agents along the coast do not support the idea D. they will be easily knocked down by waves and currents 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。 Sure, we've all heard that we should get more sleep. The realities of life often make it become "we should get more sleep later." 31 The result is that you wake up the next day feeling like a role of The Walking Dead. Here are four ways you can adjust your biology in order to pay less for staying up. ● Move around. Exercising before bed is a sure way to keep awake. That's why you shouldn't do it when you want to go to sleep, and it is also why hitting the gym, or even some
fast push-ups can tell your body that it's not time for bed. Being physically exhausted isn't fun when you are trying to stay up late. 32 ● Eat more protein. Few people think about the fact that the brain and body use a lot more energy when we're awake. If you are pulling an all-nighter, you're going to need a lot more food than you are used to eating. 33 To stay awake, plan to eat larger meals than normal and to eat them more frequently. ● Drink the right stuff. It's tempting (诱人) to switch to sugary caffeine drinks like Red Bull, but the sugar will lead to a crash. Instead, if you want to use caffeine, drink early in the evening so it'll wear off by the time you want to sleep. 34 Don't make it worse by drinking sugar. ● 35 Turn the lights down at night because bright lights keep you awake. For three or four hours after you're exposed to bright white light, your body won't make melatonin, a must for deep sleep. You will sleep better if you turn the lights a little bit down. A．Turn the lights off. B．Avoid bright lights. C．Just do enough to get energetic. D．And your body can never bear something like that. E. Your brain can use up to 25 percent of your total calories. F. When you stay up late, your blood sugar becomes abnormal. G. There is either more work to be done, or more fun to be had, or both. 第三部分 英语知识应用（共两节，满分 45 分） 第一节 完形填空（共 20 小题；每小题 1.5 分，满分 30 分） 阅读下面短文，从短文后各题所给的四个选项（A、B、C 和 D）中，选出可以填入空白处 的最佳选项, 并在答题卡将该选项的标号涂黑。 Basically, people are afraid of giving talks in front of others.
