阅读下列短文，从每题所给的四个选项（A、B、C 和 D)中，选出最佳选项，并在答题卡上将 该 项涂黑。 A Tre S mom，Christina Thompson, cannot believe how much her son already learned this year in his full-day, free pre-school class in Oklahoma City. ?Since he’ s been in school his vocabulary has increased surprisingly,? Thompson says. ?The other day he came home and said, ‘You know what ， mom? You are being ridiculous，? Thompson laughs quietly. ?And then he asked, ‘Do you know what ‘ridiculous’ means, mom?’? Tre knows the entire alphabet, his numbers to 100，and he’s starting to read. And letters and numbers aside, Thompson is most struck by how fast Tre is absorbing vocabulary and language. Of course, not all pre-school is created equal. High quality pre-schools have well-trained, well-educated teachers in the classroom (much like Tre Thompson’s teacher Mrs. Wallace, who uses play-based learning to teach both academics and social skills and can rattle off (飞 说 ）a battery of data on how well her students are 快 出 progressing towards their year-end goals). Texas can also offer a model for educator development: its Texas School Ready! Campaign has proven to increase the quality of participating pre-schools by providing early childhood teachers with coaching, professional development, research-based curriculum (课 )，and progress monitoring. 程 States and districts should also combine pre-school with the K-12 system, as Oklahoma does ，so that children enter kindergarten smoothly. Oklahoma is one of the leading states in providing students like Tre with free ， full-day pre-school. And the results are already paying off: According to a 2012 study, Oklahoma kids that went through pre-school showed vocabulary gains 28% higher than those of children without pre-school, and math gains 44% higher than non-pre-school kids. And we know that high-quality pre-school doesn’t just mean higher scores in elementary school. They were more likely to have graduated from high school and less likely to have committed a violent
crime. They also earned more money and were more likely to be employed. We know pre-school works, so let’s stop talking and start building a system where all children have access to excellent early childhood education. As any well-educated four year old could tell us, not doing so would be ridiculous. 56.The case of Tre in the first paragraph serves as the evidence of______. A_ children’s disrespect towards parents B. the bad performance of students at school C. the positive effect of pre-school on children D. Thompson’s doubt about her son’s education 57.At high quality pre-schools, children may learn by______ A. playing B. modelling C. researching D. monitoring
58.It can be inferred that______. A. children can not enter kindergarten without pre-school B. Oklahoma is the best state offering full-day pre-school C. all pre-schools have well-trained, well-educated teachers D. kids with pre-school may be better equipped for their future 59. What would be the best title for the passage?
A. Not all pre-school works B. All pre-school is created equal C. We owe our kids universal pre-school D. Pre-school goes well with K-12 system B There is no doubt that Apple is well aware of the increased competition in the market and could be in 压 hurry to put another device out there, said Ramon Llamas, senior research analyst at IDC Mobile Devices Technology and Trends. Given its history with product launches and business policy, though, Apple probably isn’t going to rush an iPhone release simply to put it on shelves, he said. ?If you’re Tim Cook (CEO of Apple), you’re thinking if you
to pay more attention to how to keep growing that bottom line and keep investors happy, or continue with the same approach from Apple, which is do what we can do and manage products and releases in the best way they can work for us. Apple usually does things in their own time ，and I’m having a hard time buying this May or June timeline.? Llamas told Mac News World. While it，s probable that Apple is definitely in a testing stage for its next smartphone , consumers likely have a standard wait for the finished product, said Colin Gibbs, analyst at GigaOm Pro. ?It typically takes a year or longer to create a state-of-the-art smartphone, so no one should be surprised Apple is in the testing stages with the next iPhone. And while it’s possible that Apple could launch the next iPhone this spring or summer, I’m not expecting to see it until a little later in the year,? he told Mac News World. When it does launch, though, it could be in a variety of colors, said Gibbs. ?Apple has already tested the waters with releasing colored devices when it revamped(更 ， 新 新 翻 ）its iPod line last fall, so it’s not too much of a stretch to believe it would want the new twist with its smartphone, as well?. ?I wouldn’t be surprised if the new iPhone becomes available in some new colors，’’ he said. ?That could be done pretty cheaply ，and it would give Apple a new marketing angle.? 60.According to Ramon Llamas, Apple always______. A. tries to pleases its investors C. ignores the fierce market competition B. does things as planned D. rushes to put new products to market
61.As for the next iPhone, Colin Gibbs didn’t mention______ _ A. the stage of its being tested C. the wide variety of its color 62. B. the rough time of its being released D. the function to be improved
What’s Colin Gibbs ，attitude towards the next iPhone? C. Objective. D. Doubtful.
A. Disapproving. B. Casual.
63.This passage is presented in the form of______. A. stories B. comments C. advertisements D. debates C DEARAUNTYf My husband’s niece is 13 and what I would call “a handful”. She wants to stay with us for while, and her
mother and grandmother have told me what a great influence I would be on her. Her visit ， doubt, would no bring about a long list of demands’ and she’d want to bring a friend too. I don1t feel comfortable hosting her, but I don 3r know how to tell my husband’s family members without hurting their feelings. -Reluctant Aunt Dear Reluctant, Let’s get you out of this mess.

FDA proposed the most sweeping food safety rules in decades, requiring farmers and food companies to be more cautious in the wake of deadly outbreaks in peanuts, cantaloupe (瓜 ， leafy greens. ） and The long-overdue regulations are aimed at reducing the estimated 3,000 deaths a year from foodbome illness. Just since last summer, outbreaks of listeria (李 杆 ） cheese and salmonella(沙 氏 ） peanut butter, 氏 菌 in 门 菌 in cantaloupe and mangoes have been linked to more than 400 illnesses and as many as seven deaths, according to the Centers for Disease Control. The actual number of those sickened is likely much higher. The FDA’s proposed rules would require farmers to take new precautions against contamination (污 ）,to 染 include making sure workers hands are washed, irrigation (灌 ）water is clean, and that animals stay out of 溉 fields. Food manufacturers will have to submit food safety plans to the government to show they are keeping their operations clean. Many responsible food companies and farmers are already following the steps that the FDA would now require them to take. But officials say the requirements could have saved lives and prevented illnesses in some of the large-scale outbreaks that have hit the country in recent years. In a 2011 outbreak of listeria in cantaloupe that claimed 33 lives ，for example, FDA inspectors found pools of dirty water on the floor and old, dirty processing equipment at the Colorado farm where the cantaloupes were grown. In a peanut butter outbreak this year linked to 42 salmonella illnesses ，inspectors found samples of salmonella throughout a New Mexico peanut processing plant and multiple obvious safety problems ，such as birds flying over uncovered trucks of peanuts and employees not washing their hands. Under the new rules, companies would have to lay out plans for preventing those sorts of problems and how they would correct them. ?The rules go very directly to preventing the types of outbreaks we have seen/，said Michael Taylor, FDA’s
deputy commissioner for foods. 68.The main task of FDA is probably______ A. to protect and promote the public health B. to help those sickened recover C. to research on food safety measures D. to deal with water pollution
69.According to the passage, the new rules focus on_____. A. inspecting the whole process of food production B. improving food processing equipment on farms C preventing water pollution in food production D. urging food companies to lay out plans 70. What does the word ?they? in Paragraph 3 refer to? B. Farmers. C. Manufacturers. D. Workers.
A. Inspectors. 71.
Which of the following is TRUE according to the passage?
A. The new regulations should have come into practice earlier. B. The 2011 outbreak of listeria is the most serious ever. C. Farmers and food companies are strongly against the new rules. D. Colorado and New Mexico are worst hit by food pollution.
I became what I am today at the age of twelve, on a freezing cold wet day in the winter of 1975. I remember the right moment, hiding behind a fragile mud wall, peeking (窥 ） 视 into the alley (胡 ）near the frozen stream. 同 That was a long time ago ，but it’s wrong what they say about the past, I，ve learned, about how you can bury it, because the past claws its way out. Looking back now, I realize I，ve been peeking into that deserted alley for the last twenty-six years. One day in summer, my friend, Rahim Khan called from Pakistan. He asked me to come to see him. Standing in the kitchen with the receiver to my ear, I knew it wasn’t just Rahim Khan on the line. It was my past of unatoned sins (未 弥 的 行 After I hung up, I went for a walk along Spreckels Lane on the northern edge of Golden 能 补 罪 ) Gate Park. The early afternoon sun sparkled on the water where dozens of small boats sailed, driven by a gentle breeze. Then I glanced up and saw a pair of kites with long blue tails, soaring in the sky. They danced high
above the trees on the west end of the park, over the windmill, floating side by side like a pair of eyes looking down on San Francisco, the city I now call home. And suddenly Hassan S voice whispered in my head: FOR YOU, A THOUSAND TIMES OVER. Hassan the hare-lipped kite runner. I sat on a park bench near a willow tree. I thought about something Rahim Khan said just before he hung up, almost as an after thought. THERE IS A WAY TO BE GOOD AGAIN. I looked up at those twin kites. I thought about Hassan. Thought about Baba. AU. Kabul. I thought of the life I had lived until the winter of 1975 came along and changed everything. And made me what I am today. 72.After 1975，the hero of the story spent his life_____. A. with happiness B. with regret C. in peace D. in danger
73.It can be inferred from the passage that_____. A. Rahim Khan spoke ill of the hero B. the hero had made up for his wrong-doings C. San Francisco was the birthplace of the hero D. something bad might have happened in the alley 74.The writer attracts the readers by using_____ a. an impressive opening c concrete and vivid language A. abc 75. B. bcd What is the passage mainly about? B. A forget-me-not event. b_ a lively description of inner thoughts d. a detailed plot of the story C. acd D. abd
