第三部分：阅读理解(共 20 小题；每小题 2 分，满分 40 分) 第一节：阅读下列短文，从每题所给的 A、B、C、D 四个选项中，选出最 佳选项。 A Mozart was a great man born with a given talent. He was writing songs at the age of five and performing before the queen by the time he was six years old. Early on, Mozart realized what his talents were, practiced or honed what he was born to do and used his natural abilities to create amazing pieces of music. Mozart was not the first to be born with natural talents and he wasn’t the last. We all have them. We only need to discover what they are and use them to the best of our abilities. You have been given amazing gifts that are meant to be shared with the
world. Your job is to find out what those talents are and ma ster them. Finding your natural talents may not be an easy task. Perhaps your parents except fewer wouldn’t approve of (赞成) your artistic ability to paint or sing, because they want you to be a successful doctor or lawyer. Maybe your gift wouldn’t seem to have the ability to bring the kind of wealth you hope. These may be excuses; it’s up to you. Have you ever noticed that when you engage in an activity in which you are naturally talented, you feel active and excited? That’s a sign that these are the things you should do. Discover your brilliance(才华) in life and practice, practice, practice.
There are only two steps to success—discover your brilliance and perfect it. 56. In the writer’s opinion Mozart’s success lies in ______. A. his great given talent C. learning from others B. making good use of his nat ural talent D. his favorable conditions
57. What does the underlined word “honed” in Paragraph 1 probably mean? A. To do something repeatedly to improve one’s skill. B. To find out what one is always good at doing. C. To do what one likes and what is interesting. D. To ask others for some advice of d oing something. 58. We can infer from the passage that many parents want their children to______. A. be a teacher or a lawyer C. earn much money as a player B. be a singer or an artist D. give up painting or singing
59. In Paragraph 4 the writer advises us to _______. A. work hard at what we are engaging in B. fear no difficulty and realize our dream C. practice what we are naturally good at D. become a great athlete like Jordan

So you make a video of your performance and post it online for your friends to see. But what if this led to something beyond your wildest imagination—a career in music? Canadian teenager Justin Bieber, 16, has just had the magical experience: He posted homemade videos of his versions of songs by American singer Chris Brown online for his relatives. He received a phone call from Brown, telling him how much he liked his performance. His singing eventually earned him a fan base and a record contract. After releasing a popular EP (extended play 密纹唱片) record in November
2009, his album My world 2.0 came out last Tuesday. Bieber sings ballads and songs about puppy love. But is he just another gooey (甜腻的) teen idol? David Malitz, a columnist with the Washington Post, doesn't think so. “If we truly want the best for American children, let us pause and give thanks for Justin Bieber，” he writes. “After years of humdrum bubblegum (乏味的摇滚舞曲) from Miley Cyrus and the Jonas Brothers, the 16year- has thrown a candyold coated wrench (扭转) into Disney's heartthrob (甜心) assembly line (生产线) by giving young fans something worth screaming their lungs out for: lovable pop songs.” From a boy who grew up below the poverty line with his divorced mom to a star who caused nearriots (近乎失控) in shoppi ng malls, even Bieber himself can't believe his overnight fame, although his kind of success is becoming more and more common in the Internet era. Interested in hockey (冰球), the national sport of Canada, the boy once put up pictures of players on the walls of his bedroom. He dreamed of being a hockey star and used to practice signing his autograph (签名). He doesn't need practice now. He signs autographs, if the girls can get close enough, as a music star. 63．What did Chris Brown think of Justin Bieber's singing? A．He didn't like it. B．He liked it very much. C．He didn't say anything. D．He supported Justin Bieber. 64．Who is a columnist? A．Chris Brown. B．Jay Chou.
C．David Malitz. D．Miley Cyrus. 65．What can we learn from the fourth paragraph? A．He had a happy family. B．His family was very poor once. C．His family was rich. D．His family helped h im a lot. 66.What's the best title of the passage? A．Justin Bieber's overnight singing online.
B．Justin Bieber's common experience. C．Justin Bieber's life. D．Justin Bieber's records. D Angry Birds is a video game developed by Finnish computer gam e developer Rovio Mohile.
