第二部分： 阅读理解 （共两节， 满分 40 分） 第一节 （共 15 小题；每小题 2 分，满分 30 分） 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。 A Shree Bose is one of the most impressive kids graduating from Fort Worth Country Day High School this year. Bose has a large circle of friends, and there?s one who you ma y have heard of: President Obama. He has twice publicly recognized her achievements in cancer research and spoken with her in the Oval Office. If that isn?t enough, Bose recently gave a TED Talk about her work with the cancer drug Cisplatin, which also won her first prize at the Google Science Fair and recognition as one of Glamour magazine?s Young Amazing Women of the Year. After watching her grandfather struggle with liver cancer, Bose was determined to help out in any way she could. As a high school student，though, her scientific choices were limited. She reached out to various hospitals and research centers, but doctors turned down her requests because they felt she was too inexperienced medically. Only the North Texas Science Health Center respected her determination and chose to guide her. The results were amazing. Bose chose to study a protein and its reaction with the cancer drug Cisplatin. She noticed that when she prevented this protein from growing, Cisplatin was allowed to begin destroying cancer cells once again. “My project not only contributes to the understanding of the relationship between the protein and Cisplatin, but also suggests a newer, more effective treatment for patients who resist Cisplatin,” Bose said. Bose?s achievements aren?t limited to the lab, though. She was also captain of her swim team and editor-in-chief of her school paper. Bose is currently getting practical experience at the National Institute of Health and she?ll be attending Harvard in the fall. She plans to study molecular biology and go to medical school. Eventually, she would like to be a doctor. 21. President Obama has spoken with Bose because she ______.

A. a research on cancer drugs C. a doctor who has a promising future B. a new effective cancer treatment D. a girl who did research on cancer treatment B Paparazzi, or “paps”, are photographers who take pictures of famous people when they are not at the center of public attention. Paps are different from professional photographers or journalists because they never take ordinary photos. The goal for paparazzi is to get pictures that no one else will get and then sell the pictures to the buyer who offers the most money — normally a small newspaper, magazine or website. There is no law against paparazzi taking pictures in public places. However, there are laws that protect certain individuals. For example, child protection laws stop improper pictures of anyone under 16 from being published. There is also no law that stops paparazzi from following celebrities and taking their pictures either. However, if paps are secretly following them and taking pictures of their faces, they could get into trouble. Most paparazzi hang out on streets and hot spots for celebrities, waiting for the opportunity to take a picture of a star. Many stay on the streets until the early hours of the morning when celebrities are leaving nightclubs and looking a little worse for wear. However, some have other ways to make sure they get pictures. Many paps are in contact with “informers” who know the locations of celebrities at any given time. They then pass the information on to paparazzi. An informer could be anyone — from a restaurant waiter to a salesman. Most of the time, paparazzi get a bad reputation for following celebrities. But sometimes stars or their managers will contact paps themselves and tell them exactly where and when they will go. What a love-hate relationship between paparazzi and celebrities!
25.Which of the following things paparazzi might do would be against the law? A. Getting unsuitable pictures of a 10-year-old actress published. B. Taking pictures of famous people in public places. C. Following a famous woman singer secretly and taking her pictures. D. Hanging out at the places where celebrities often appear. 26. In order to earn big money a pap has to ________. A. get the only first-hand pictures C. make friends with famous people 27. The fifth paragraph mainly tells us ________. A. how paparazzi get the pictures C. how paparazzi contact informers 28. What can we infer from the passage? A. Paparazzi always take pictures when famous people are tired. B. Stars hate paparazzi and don?t want to be followed. C. Paparazzi and famous people rely on each other sometimes. D. Informers might get paparazzi into trouble. C Here are the comments on CRI (China Radio International) given by people from different countries on the Internet. People Yingtian Hu Guangzhou, China Comments This is the first time that I participate in CRI. And I like it very much.

D Let?s read the descriptions of the following scenes of shopping. A man enters a store to buy milk. He walks out of the store with milk. That is all— milk. At the same time, a woman enters the same grocery store also to buy milk. She buys it. But, she also buys chicken and lemons to make dinner that night. Then she remembers to buy food for her son to eat at school. She also gets a bottle of wine for drinks with friends and a birthday card for her husband's niece. Then she gets coffee for breakfast, ice cream for
dessert and remembers stamps to mail the bills. And don't forget soap for the bathroom. And that is the difference between the female and male brains simply explained in a grocery store. Generally speaking， men do one thing at a time. Women do many. Doing many things at one time is often called “multi-tasking”, a very popular word these days. Now scientific research supports this theory about male and female brains. A recent study has confirmed what we have known all along—men and women think differently. Scientists at the University of Pennsylvania studied brain images of 949 people aged from 8 to 22 years old. They found that male brains have more connections on one side of the brain, or hemisphere. In the female brain, they found more activities and connections between the right and left sides of the brain. The left side of the brain is known as the side of “reason”. The right hemisphere is known as the “creative” side. Regina Verma is a professor at the University of Pennsylvania. She co-wrote the report. She says when women are asked to do something difficult, they might use different parts of the brain. Men, she adds, generally use just one side of the brain. As a result, men generally deal directly with a problem. There is a strong connection between the “understanding” and the “action” parts of their brains. Women, however, might include other parts of the brain, like the part connected with reason and the part connected with sensitivity when solving a problem. Women take a less direct path to find a solution. Dr. Verma warns that the study should not lead anyone to expect some behaviors from women and others from men. 32. By describing the scene of shopping, the writer wants to ____ . A. criticize women's wasted living expenses B. illustrate men and women's different brains C. think highly of women's considerate behavior D. reveal men and women's preference of living expenses 33. When asked to deal with a problem, _____ . A. men tend to take action straight B.women tend to take action straight C. women tend to use a single part of the brain D. men tend to use connected parts of the brain 34. Dr. Verma's warning indicates that _____ . A. women and men can hardly cooperate well B. women and men can hardly complete multitasks
C. women and men can hardly learn from each other D. neither women nor men can always perform the same behavior 35. What would be the best title for the passage? A. Reason or Sensitivity C. “Reason” Brain or “Creative” Brain B. Multi-tasking or Single-tasking D. Costly Shopping or Economical Shopping
