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，并在答 题卡上将该项涂黑。 A Most visitors come to the UK expecting the rain and weather for which the country is famous. However, when summer finally arrives, British people like nothing more than heading for the coast. Here are some of more famous places of interest that you could expect to visit on a trip to Britain. Black pool, in the northwest of England, is the most visited place in the UK. Each year around 6.5 to 7 million people come to enjoy the miles of sandy beaches, the 158m Black pool Tower and the 11km-long Golden Mile, where there are entertainments, pubs, ice rinks (溜冰场) and even a zoo. On the south coast of the country you can find Brighton. Until 1786, Brighton was a sleepy village. Then the future king, George IV, decided to build a house there, and now it has become a large, international centre. Apart from the beaches, Brighton is famous for its pier (码 头 ). There are theatres, entertainments and restaurants there. Brighton is also fantastic for shopping. If you want to travel a little further, why not go to Cornwall in the far southwest of the UK? South Cornwall offers miles of sandy beaches and beautiful scenery. The climate there is warmer than the rest of Britain, and you can even find palm trees. For a bit more excitement, go to North Cornwall. The scenery there is nicer, and the beaches are famous for their powerful waves. As a result, North Cornwall has become the home of British surfing. One word of warning though, if you are using the roads in the UK during holidays, you can expect long traffic jams on the motorways. It might be better to take the train. 21. Which is the best title for this passage? A. How to Enjoy Your Holidays C. Welcome to Britain! 22. We may find this passage in a ______. A. travel guide D. news magazine 23. If Andrew likes surfing, which is the best place for him to spend his holidays? A. Black pool. D. South Cornwall. 24. From the passage we can infer that ______. A. there are no beaches in the east and west of Britain B. the climate in South Cornwall is attractive to many people C. the pier is more interesting than the beaches in Brighton D. Black pool is the most famous place in the UK B Jeanne Calment, a French woman, became a record breaker on 17 October, 1995, when at the age of 120 years and 238 days, she became the longest-lived human being on record. A Japanese B. Brighton. C. North Cornwall. B. storybook C. geography book B. Let’s Go to the Beach! D. How to Travel in Britain
man died in 1986 at the age of 120 years and 237 days. Jeanne Calment lives in a small old people’s home in the south of France; her husband, her only child and her grandson have all died. She is nearly blind and deaf and is always in a wheelchair, but her doctor describes her as being more like a 90-year-old woman in good health than someone of 120. She still has a lively sense of humor. When asked on her 120th birthday what she expected of the future, she replied: A very short one. She also remarked that she thought the good Lord had forgotten all about her. So what is the key to a long life? According to some doctors, diet, exercise and no smoking are the three important factors. Jeanne Calment has followed two of the tips. She has always eaten a healthy diet, and she used to do exercise every day until she broke her leg at the age of 115. However, until recently she drank two glasses of strong red wine a day, and she does smoke (now only a little). Besides, Jeanne Calment might have got very good genes from her parents. Her father lived to the age of 94 and her mother to 86. A local lawyer bought her house when she was 80 under an agreement that he would pay her some money every year until her death. It must have seemed a good move at the time, but so far the lawyer has paid her at least three times the value of the house. Every year on her birthday, Jeanne Calment sends him a card saying: Sorry, I’m still alive! 25. How does Jeanne Calment feel about her old age? A. She is miserable and unhappy. C. She would like to live much younger. A. trick birthday? A. Because the lawyer has paid her much more money than the value of the house. B. Because she has asked the lawyer to pay her more rent than they first agreed. C. Because she had an agreement at 80 with the lawyer which was to her advantage. D. Because the house she sold to the lawyer is worth the money he has already paid. C If you are sitting, please stand up. Move your legs. Touch your toes if you can. Do anything but sit. New research shows that if you cut down on the time you spend sitting, you might live longer. Sitting less than three hours a day might extend your life by two years. Cutting television time to less than two hours a day can add one point four years to life. The human body is designed to move. The fact is just the opposite. Modern lifestyles and office jobs rarely give us the chance to move around. We sit while we’re eating; we sit in the car; we sit while we are watching TV. And most of us sit for many hours at work. Sitting is something we do all the time. On average, Americans sit for four and a half to five hours a day. But that does not make sitting good for us. Though you may exercise often, that does not mean you can sit for the rest of your waking hours. We can’t throw away physical activity. It is extremely important. Even if you exercise for 30 minutes a day, what goes on in the other 23 and a half hours a day is also very important. Changes are coming to some offices, especially in the design of desks. A “standing desk” lets people stand while they work. Another new design is called the “treadmill desk”. It is an exercise machine that lets you walk slowly in one place. Even some U.S. schools begin to experiment with B. deal B. She feels she is going to die very soon. D. She is cheerful and humorous. C. march D. sport
26. Which of the following word could best replace the word “move” in the fourth paragraph? 27. Why does Jeanne Calment say “Sorry, I’m still alive” to the lawyer every year on her
desks that are part bicycle to keep children moving. Many companies may not buy a standing desk for everybody. However, they may get five standing desks or a treadmill desk for their employees and put them in a certain place where people can go for an hour a day to answer their emails or talk on the phone. Experts suggest some other activities: take a walk at lunchtime; walk to the offices and talk directly instead of emailing colleagues. All these activities may help you live longer. 28. Why should people stand up according to the new research? A. They should touch their toes. B. Standing more can cure some diseases. C. Sitting less does people good and may help people live longer. D. They spend too much time watching TV. 29. What can we learn about sitting? A. Sitting is the best position for the body. B. People usually have to sit for a long time nowadays. C. The more people sit, the better they will be. D. Americans sit longer every day than people in other countries. 30. What does the underlined word “It” in Paragraph 3 refer to? A. The walking hour Exercising 31. Which of the following is TRUE according to the passage? A. The new design of desks can help people sit less. B. The “treadmill desk” is used by people to run. C. It’s better for school students to use standing desks. D. It’s necessary for companies to offer a sitting desk to every employees. D In a world today of immense technology, population growth and economic flourish, planning for future residential (适合居住的) and commercial developments needs careful analysis with well thought through assumptions about effects on the environment and the people of the community. One example of a growing city is Wooster, Ohio, my place of residency, Wooster in the last five years has grown considerably in population, leading to a growth in commercial business. Surrounded by farmland, Wooster’s planning commission chose to extend the community into these farm areas in the form of residential and commercial areas. Picture this—corn fields, old trees, clean air, country roads, and wildlife are all part of the area. Within four years, the people living on this farm step outside on their front porch to view an extensive shopping center containing Wal-Mart, McDonald’s, Wendy’s, TCBY, and a Cinemark movie theatre. The once quiet road is now a city street with traffic lights, busy with automobiles day and night. The air smells of car exhaust and fast food. Some destruction of farmland is unavoidable when a city expands. Instead of expanding outward, planning commissions should consider interior(内部的) remodeling of a city. Tearing down unusable buildings could remodel many areas inside the city. In addition, commercialized buildings could extend upwards to avoid unnecessary use of land. Environmentally, commercial expansion is harmful to the land. Besides forms of pollution, B. Sitting C. Standing. D.
wildlife, including both plants and animals, is put at risk. A planning commission could have realized the benefits of environmental protection. Why not preserve the beauty and naturalness of the land while at the same time allowing for growth? With a steady growth of population and the need for more homes and more workplaces, many problems arise when planning for the future. The hillsides, fields and animal habitats need to be preserved while expanding cities. In the future, a world covered with concrete and asphalt （沥青）could become reality. Serious research and analysis are needed when planning for the future of our home communities and for the entire globe to avoid such a miserable result． 32. It can be inferred from the passage that ______. A. it is unavoidable to destroy farmland when a city grows B. Wooster used to be a quiet and peaceful city surrounded by farmland C. with many nationwide shopping centers, Wooster lost its uniqueness D. commercial expansion has done no harm to Wooster 33. It can be concluded from the passage that the author thinks Wooster’s planning commission ______. A. has tried its best to protect the environment C. should have avoided such a tragedy pollution 34. Which of the following sentences best expresses the main idea of the passage? A. Planning for future residential and commercial developments has bad effects on the environment and the living things. B. With a safety growth of population, more homes and more workplaces are needed. C. With immense technology, population growth and economic prosperity, we need to plan for the future. D. When planning for future developments, effects on the environment should be taken into account. 35. What is the writer’s attitude towards the current planning of cities? A. Critical（批评的） ． C. Objective （客观的） 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。 Are you truly happy?

第二节 书面表达： （25 分） Writing Sample Recently many students in our school aren’t having breakfast or eating other meals throughout the day. Instead they are choosing to eat some junk food. This is really a problem. One reason for this problem is that many students love eating junk food, but don’t know what effects it can bring to their health. Another reason is that there are only a few types of food in the canteen for students to choose from. To solve this problem, first, we can hold lectures or speech contests on healthy eating, which will make students realize the harmfulness of junk food. Second, the canteen should offer a wide variety of food. Last, we’d better call on parents to help their children from good eating habits. I think these ways will help students keep a healthy diet.
