There are some places that have few or no earthquakes. Most places in the world，however，have them regularly (有规律的)．Countries that have a lot of earthquakes are usually quite mountainous. The most talked about earthquake in the United States was in San Francisco in 1906. Over 700 people died in it. The strongest one in North America was in 1964，It happened in Alaska. Strong earthquakes are not always the ones that kill the most people. In 1755, one of the strongest earthquakes ever recorded was felt in Portugal. Around 2,000 people died. In 1923, a very strong earthquake hit Tokyo，the Yokohama area of Japan. A hundred and forty thousand people died. Most of them died in fires which followed the earthquake. One of the worst earthquakes ever was in China in 1976.It killed a large number of people. The worst earthquake ever recorded was also in China，in which 400,000 people were killed or injured. This earthquake happened in 1556. Earthquakes worry people a lot. The reason is that we often do not know when they are coming. People can not prepare for it. 61. Earthquakes happen ______.
A．in all the places in the world B．only in the countries that have a lot of mountains C．regularly in most places in the world D．only in a few places along the mountains 62. How many people died in the earthquake which happened in Portugal in 1755? A．500. B．140,000. C．400,000. D．2,000. 63. When and where was the worst earthquake ever recorded? A．1964；Alaska. B．1556；China. C．1923；Japan. D．1976；China. 64. According to the passage，which of the following is NOT true? A．The stronger the earthquake is, the more people are killed. B．Earthquakes can cause fires. C．People still don’t know how to tell when an earthquake will come. D．Earthquakes often come unexpectedly． B A Russian, a Cuban, an American businessman and an American lawyer were on a train traveling across England. The Russian took out a large bottle of vodka， gave each of the men a drink and then threw the rest half bottle of vodka out of the window. “Why did you do that？” asked the American businessman. “There’s too much vodka in my country， ” said the Russian， “And really we have more than we will ever use.” A little later, the Cuban passed around fine Havana Cigars. Then he threw his out of the window. “I thought Cuba is not a rich country”, the businessman said. “But you throw that very good cigars out of the window!” “Cigars,” the Cuban answered, “are the cheapest in my country. We have more of them than we know what to do with.” The American businessman sat quietly for a moment. Then he got up，caught the lawyer by the arm and threw him out of the window. 65. Vodka is a kind of ________. A．treasure B．alcohol (酒) C．food D．medicine 66. The Russian and the Cuban both wanted to ________. A．tell the businessman what their countries are rich in B．prove that they were rich C．ask the two Americans to visit their countries D．make the businessman happy 67.

B．We have too many lawyers in my country. C．I’ll go to Cuba and do some business of cigars. D．If you need lawyers，come to America. C Some people are never right. They never have good luck. They usually do the wrong things and say the wrong things. And even if what they say and do is OK, they say it or do it at the wrong time. So these people always have problems. They often break glasses. They sometimes miss buses or trains. Mr. Neff is different. He is always right. He is never wrong. He usually has good luck. He hardly has problems. He never misses buses and trains. Even though he really misses them, it is always the fault of the buses and the trains. Mr. Neff knows almost everything. He doesn’t ask questions. He answers questions. He never says “I don’t know”． I don’t know Mrs. Neff. It seems that not many people know her. I sometimes want to know about her. Is she always right? Or maybe she is always wrong? Does she often break glasses or miss buses and trains? Does she have problems? I really want to know! 69. What kind of man is Mr. Neff?

He becomes the first rider ever to win the race three times. May 9, 1754 Benjamin Franklin’s Pennsylvania Gazette produces perhaps the first American political cartoon showing a snake cut in pieces with the words “Join or Die” printed under the picture

May 19, 1994 Jacqueline Lee Bouvier Kennedy Onassis, former first lady and one of the most famous people of the 1960s died of cancer in New York City at the age of 64.

When India had not opened up its markets to the world，I carried suitcase loads of dark glasses and jeans. Thankfully，we can get all these anywhere in India now. Still，her answer surprised me, “Green tea.” As long as I can remember，she didn’t even drink Indian tea. I dutifully bought a big packet of Longjing and headed home to hear the story. My mother and her brother，both regular newspaper readers, believed that Chinese green tea was the wonder drug for all illnesses. At the turn of the century，China was not really familiar to the average Indian. It was a strange country. How things change！And how soon! Now every town of any size seems to have a “China Market”．And everyone is talking about China. The government of India has planned to send a team to China to see how things are done. A minister once said that India must open the doors for more foreign investment (投资) and such a step would “work wonders as it did for China”． But it’s a two-way street. I just heard about a thousand Shenzhen office workers who have gone to Bangalore to train in software. Meanwhile，all the Indian IT majors are setting up a strong presence in China. No wonder that trade， which was only in the millions just ten years ago， is expected to hit about US $15 billion for last year and US $20 billion by 2008, a goal set by both governments.
No wonder，my colleague wrote some weeks ago about this being the Sino-Indian (中印) century as the two countries started on January 1 the Sino-Indian Friendship Year. But what is still a wonder to me is my mother drinking Chinese tea. 77. Why did the mother ask for Chinese green tea? A．She was tired of Indian tea. B．She had a son working in China. C．She believed it had a curing effect. D．She was fond of Chinese products. 78. What does the author mean by “it’s a two-way street” in Paragraph 10? A．China and India have different traffic rules. B．Tea trade works wonders in both India and China. C．Chinese products are popular in both China and India. D．The exchanges between India and China benefit both. 79. What do we know about the Indian IT industry? A．It will move its head office to Shenzhen. B．It is seeking further development in China. C．It has attracted an investment of US$15 billion. D．It caught up with the US IT industry in 2008. 80. In the text the author expresses ______. A．his concern for his mother’s health B．his support for drinking Chinese green tea C．his surprise at China’s recent development D．his wonder at the growth of India’s IT industry 第 II 卷（共 40 分） 第五部分：写作（共两节，满分 40 分） 第一节：短文改错（每题 1 分，共 10 分） I was born in a farmer family in Suizhong county, Liaoning Province in June, in 1965. When I was a child, I dreamed of flying in the sky. I joined the army in June, 1983. In 1992, I was sent to the air force base. In August, 1996，I was one of the first 14 members from 1,500 pilots through the physical examination. I worked hardly, because I was among the first astronauts of our country in 1998.I was chosen one of the first man space aircraft astronauts later. On Oct.15, 2003, I successfully fly to space, circled around the earth about 14 circle and then returned. I was honored to have given the chance to be the first Chinese to travel in space. 第二节：书面表达（满分 30 分） 以“Nature”为题写一篇 100－120 词的英语短文。要点如下： 1．简述人类对大自然的依赖。 2．随着人类的发展，生态平衡遭到破坏，人类生存的环境受到严重污染。人类正在受到 大自然的惩罚。 3．我们要善待自然，自然也会关照我们。 注意：1．内容可适当增减，但不可逐字翻译； 2．文章的开头已给出，但不计入总词数。 Nature Nature is the mother of mankind.

We human beings get almost everything we need from her. We live on natural food. We make clothes from natural materials. And we build our houses of stone and wood. While (Though) we get almost everything we need from nature, it is a pity that humans take little care of nature. As we ask nature for more and more, we have destroyed the balance of nature. Water, air and soil have been badly polluted and the earth is becoming hotter and hotter. As a result, many kinds of animals and plants have die out. What’s worse, natural disasters happen frequently and people often suffer from diseases caused by pollution. Obviously, we humans are being punished by nature for what we have done ourselves. From the above we know humans have to stop doing anything harmful to nature. So long as we treat nature kindly, she will look after us better in the future.
