第二部分 阅读（共两节，满分 50分）
第一节阅读理解(共 20 小题；每小题 2 分，满分 40 分） 阅读下列四篇短文，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 My grandparents actively practiced simplicity. They both grew up in very large families and lived through the Great Depression. Saving for a rainy day and avoiding superfluous consuming was their life philosophy. Rather than seeking fulfillment through material items, they chose to spend really simple life together, with family and in nature. Over the years my grandparents noticed dramatic changes in their community. Every year more farmland was destroyed to build larger and larger homes. As real estate prices rose, many of their neighbors sold their little homes and land. Soon theirs were the only small house on the block, surrounded by a sea of mansions. My grandparents built and lived m a small 600-square-foot cottage for most of their adult lives. Lots of family members encouraged my grandparents to expand their little old house. But they didn’t want a bigger place. They loved their little house and were content with what they had. My grandparents avoided consumptive(浪费的）lifestyle by painting and repairing the house themselves. They lived in a small home, but had a huge garden. They loved gardening and planting because it reduced their grocery bill, improved their health, and gave them an excuse to be outside. They also reused and recycled everything. For instance, they had driven the same car for over 15 years and didn’t buy a new one until the old Chevrolet was worn out. Through their example I learned an important lesson: It is possible to live a simple and fulfilling life. My grandparents taught me that living a simple life isn’t about self-deprivation. Instead, it’ about giving yourself the s time, freedom, and money to pursue your dreams. Becoming debt free, downsizing to a smaller home, and going car-lite(减少用车频率）are a few ways to take control of your life and start pursuing your dreams. 26.The underlined word superfluous in Paragraph I is closest in meaning to _____. A. meaningful B. unnecessary C. increasing D. troublesome
27.The community’s changes include all the following EXCEPT that _____
A. the people built more farmland B. the neighbors sold their houses C. the houses became more expensive D. many mansions were built there 28.The author’s grandparents didn’t expand their house because _____. A. they didn’t accept the family members'1 advice B. their house were really new and large enough C. they were satisfied with the house they lived in D. they were too old to do any house-building job 29. Which of the following is a consumptive lifestyle in the grandparents ，opinion?
A. Repairing the house themselves. B. Planting vegetables in the garden. C. Reusing and recycling things. D. Changing cars in a short time.
30.The author thinks his grandparents, lifestyle is _____. A. unacceptable B. approvable C. unreasonable D. understandable B If you are planning to study in the United States, you need to consider several factors. Everyone has different opinions about where is the best place to live in. Also, the best places to live in are not always home to the best schools. Finally, many schools specialize in different areas of study. The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (麻省理工学院)，for example, is a great school for computer science and technology-related fields of study. However, if you want to study oceanography(海 洋 )，your interests may be better served by attending school in a 、学 place that is on a coastline or near the ocean. Now I am sure that you know which schools are considered the best in the country. So I will tell you about which states I believe are the best to live in. California is a nice state. Northern California specifically has very good weather. Los Angeles in Southern California is another story though. Life in Los Angeles is full of excitement and fast, and sometimes dangerous. As for me, I enjoy the time I spent in Massachusetts, Virginia and Maryland and these states have a lot of history
and culture. The weather is not as perfect as Northern California, but it is still quite nice. My favorite area of America is the Mid-west. Middle America, I think, is home to the true American sense of values. In addition, there are many good universities there. Also, you need to think about your likes and dislikes and then research the various states. You like sunshine and hate snow? Then you probably won't like the Midwest or even the Northeast. Open space, nature and peace and quiet? Then you probably should stay away from America's large cities. Are you interested in government? Then Washington D.C. is the only place for you. Whatever you decide, put some thought into it. The place you live in could be the difference between a great study-abroad experience and a state of great suffering on earth. 31.From the first paragraph we can conclude that in the USA _____. A. all colleges and universities lie in big cities B. all colleges and universities lie in beautiful places C. famous colleges and universities lie in nice places D. famous colleges and universities may not lie in nice places 32. What, according to the writer, should be considered first if you want to study in the USA?
A. The climate. B. The scenery. C. The study condition. D. The living condition. 33.From the third paragraph we can find that _____. A. California is the best place to live in B. California is the worst place to live in C. California is a state with different climates D. California is a small state in the USA 34.If you study in Middle America, you can probably _____. A. find the best universities C. meet the most famous professors there B. feel the real character of the nation D. face more difficulties
35.From the last paragraph of this passage we can get to know that ____ . A. Washington is the largest city in the USA B. Washington D.C. is the political centre of the USA
C. you can't find sunshine in the Midwest D. you can't find any universities out of big cities in the USA C Advice to “sleep on it” could be well founded, scientists say. After a good night’s sleep a problem that seemed impossible to solve the night before can often appear easier, although no evidence has proved this by now. But researchers at the University of Luebek in Germany have designed an experiment that shows a good night’s sleep can improve insight(洞 力 察 ）and problem-solving. “If you have some newly acquired memories in your brain, sleep acts on these memories, restructures(重 ） 构 them, so that after sleep the insight into a problem which you could not solve before increases,” said Dr. Jan Bom, a neuroscientist, at the university. To test the theory, they taught volunteers two simple rules to help them put a string of numbers into a new order. There was also a third, hidden rule, which could help them increase their speed in solving the problem. The researchers divided the volunteers into two groups, half were allowed to sleep after the training while the remainders were forced to stay awake. Bom and his team noticed that the group that had slept after the training were twice as likely to figure out the third rule as the other group. “Sleep helped,” Bom said in a telephone interview. “The important thing is that you have to have a memory representation in your brain of the problem you want to solve and then you sleep, so it can act on the problem.” But Bom admitted that he and his team don’t know how restructuring of memories occurs or what governs it or in which stage of sleep it works. Pierre Marquette and Pierre Ruby of the University of Liege in Belgium said the experimental evidence supports the suggestions that sleep can promote creative thinking. Although the role of sleep in human creativity will still be a mystery, the research gives people good reason to fully respect their periods of sleep, they added. 36.The underlined phrase “sleep on it” in the first line probably means _____. A.to put something aside to be solved until the next day B.to get as much sleep as possible C. to go on sleeping without being disturbed D.to sleep till you get up the next morning 37.Jan Bom and his team carried out the experiment through _____ A.comparison B. interview C. survey D. imagination
38.It can be inferred from the passage that _____.
A.people should sleep so long as they have time B. sleep is the only way to solve hard problems C. people have various periods of sleep D.people know how sleep restructures memories 39. What would be the best title for the passage? B. Sleep Helps Solve Problems D. Bom’s Discovery On Sleep
A.How Sleep Works C. No Evidence, But Well Founded 40.
Where is the passage most likely to have been taken from? B. A book review. D. A newspaper. D
A.A science fiction. C.An advertisement.
Community theatre is a theatre that is run by a local district with the efforts of volunteers. They offer many different kinds of productions, such as musical theatre, dance theatre and children’s theatre. Usually, performers are amateurs who receive no pay, but at other times professionals get involved, and they are paid. Community theatres of today are a little different ftom the old “little theatres”，as most are simply run by colleges and their theatre departments. Community theatres are a great way to get involved with local actors. Now, most theatres put on shows that will entertain or benefit the community. In the 1880s, “little theatre” was started in Europe so that poor people could see theatrical productions without having to travel far or pay a lot. In 1910，this idea traveled to the United States. In the early years, community theatres were even funded by the government, but when shows became too political, government funding was stopped. Community theatres of today are a little different from the old “little theatres”，as most simply want to infuse little culture into the lives of the local citizens. In many cases, these theatres are run by colleges and their theatre departments. These productions are often free of charge, or charge very little money to pay for costumes and other incidental expenses. Many also encourage the participation of children and other young people to let them develop theatrical skills, as well as to keep them busy so that they do not choose to get into trouble. Additionally, for those who desire strongly to become professional actors and to one day get a chance to act in a national theatre
production, it is an exciting place to learn and develop theatrical skills. 41. Why was “little theatre” started in Europe?
A. To put on shows for children. B. To collect money for poor people. C. To entertain poor people. D. To get people interested in theatrical productions. 42. From the passage we know that community theatres can _____. A. help young people make more money B. prevent young people getting into trouble C. help young people enter the colleges D. encourage young people to become more responsible 43. Which of the following is TRUE about community theatre?
A. It is usually funded by the government. B. It is intended to train professional actors.? C. It benefits the community in many ways. D. It is quite different from the old “little theatres”. 44.Which of the followings is closest in meaning to the underlined word “infuse” in Para. 3? A. get rid of C. cut down B. fill with D. full of
45.We can infer from the last paragraph that _____. A. some professional actors may come from the community theatres B. community theatres only charge for incidental expenses C. community theatres have lost their attraction today D. people can live by acting in the community theatres

food. Because I had been in this town just for a short time, I also had no friends nearby who could help. So I went out to get some food. I would have gone to the supermarket, but on this occasion, I went into a small store because it was closer. I picked up a few items. When I handed them to the shopkeeper, she said, “You are unwell.” “Yes， I nodded. ” She pointed at the salami and bread I was buying and offered, “I can make you a sandwich, so you don’t have to do it yourself’. So, she made the sandwich and asked me to wait a moment. She went in the back room and returned with a bowl of hot soup. “It will warm you up,” she said with a genuine smile. What really warmed me up was not the soup, but her kindness. It made me want to be as kind as the shopkeeper who had been kind to me.
