阅读理解 （共 20 小题） 请认真阅读下列短文，从短文后各题所给的 A、B、C、D 四个选项中，选出最佳选项。
A★ When many of us take a vacation, more than anything, we seek to relax. We spend long, lazy days on a beach chair or in a hammock (吊床). But too often, we return home, exhausted (精疲力竭的). It doesn’t have to be this way. Come home refreshed after an active trip! And you won’t be too tired! Active vacations are often the most relaxing of all. We don’t expect you to take up jogging (慢跑) or backpacking.
Rather, we ask the sedentary (久坐的) vacationers to spend two to four hours a day doing things, such as walking the city streets, going to a zoo or biking beside the ocean. These kinds of activities aren’t just good for your physical health. They improve your mental health, even your spiritual health. And they make vacations memorable and worthwhile. And after all, isn’t that what you want from your vacation? Here are some fresh ideas to make your vacations as pleasurable as they are active and healthy. A walk at dawn or dusk is rejuvenating. Try to make this a daily ritual (习惯) of life away from home, and you will guarantee yourself both physical and spiritual
replenishment (补充). Don’t allow yourself to spend all your time sitting in front of the water. Whether it is the ocean, a swimming pool, or a tree-lined lake, make sure you get into the water to swim or play games. Many of us spend a large part of our vacations on the road, either getting to and from our destinations, or using the car for sightseeing. But no matter how beautiful the scenery is, great, memorable vacations don’t happen in a car seat.
Don’t wait for exhaustion or nature’s call to get you to pull over. Frequently get out and stretch, walk, picnic, shop, visit, and have fun. It’s important for your health and energy, and it makes traveling a lot more active and interesting. 36. What is the purpose of the passage? A. To introduce the relationship between vacations and health. B. To tell us how to make our vacations relaxing. C. To tell us where we should go for our vacations. D. To explain to us why vacations can sometimes be boring. 37. What does the underlined word “refreshed” in Paragraph 3 mean? A. In high spirits. C. Feeling less tired. B. Pleasant or cool. D. Feeling regretful.
38. In Paragraph 5, the author mainly wants to tell us ______. A. about the positive effects of active vacations B. about the importance of walking during vacation C. how to make vacations memorable D. why active vacations are more relaxing 39. In the last paragraph, the author seems to advise us to ______.
A. go on vacation by car B. spend some time on the road C. make a trip on foot D. get out of the car for sightseeing

C★★ Colours often have different meanings in various cultures. But today in the US, researchers have generally found the following to be accurate. Black is the colour of authority and power. It is popular
in fashion because it makes people appear thinner. Black also implies (意味) submission (屈服). Priests wear black to signify submission to God. Black outfits can also make the wearer seem aloof (冷淡的) or evil. Villains, such as Dracula, often wear black. Brides wear white to symbolize innocence and purity. White reflects light, considered a summer colour. White is popular in decorating and in fashion because it is light, neutral (中间色的), and goes with everything. However, white is more difficult to keep clean than other colours. The most emotionally intense colour, red, stimulates (促使) a faster heartbeat and breathing. Red is often used in restaurant decorating schemes because it is an appetite stimulant. However, since it is an extreme colour, red clothing might not help people in negotiations or confrontations. Red cars are popular targets for thieves. Blue is the colour of the sky and the ocean. Compared with red, it causes the opposite reaction. Peaceful blue, often used in bedrooms, causes the body to produce calming chemicals. People are more productive in blue rooms. Studies show weightlifters are able to handle heavier weights in blue gyms. In spite of that, it is one of the least appetizing colours
and can also be cold and depressing. Currently the most popular decorating colour, green, symbolizes nature. It is a calming, refreshing colour. People waiting to appear on TV sit in “ green rooms ” to relax. Hospitals often use green because it relaxes patients. However, seamstresses (女裁缝) often refuse to use green thread on the eve of a fashion show for fear it will bring bad luck. Cheerful sunny yellow is an attention getter. While it is considered an optimistic colour, people lose their temper more often in yellow rooms, and babies will cry more. It is the most difficult colour for the eyes to take in, so it can be overpowering if overused. 44. A cook can choose the following colours to dress dishes for his customers EXCEPT ______. A. yellow C. blue B. red D. orange
45. Which of the following statements is TRUE according to the passage? A. Black can make people thinner so it is welcomed by the fat. B. Some colours are described as disadvantageous alone. C. Patients are often dressed in green to stay relaxed.
D. In contrast with blue, red can make people feel warm and cheerful. 46. What would be the best title for the passage? A. Colour of Clothing B. Colour Psychology C. Colour and Decoration D. Colour and Occupation
D★★★ Earlier this year, my oldest daughter got braces (矫正 器) on her teeth, and let’s just say she did not go quietly into much describe the days leading up to her first appointment. So when she finally walked out with shiny teeth, a sore (疼痛的) mouth and a broken spirit, I told her I was proud of her and took her to Ben && Jerry’s for an ice cream reward. Two weeks later, we returned to the scene of the crime. The dentist spent about 45 seconds checking her teeth before sending her on her merry way. Before I could start the car, she was placing her ice cream order. She was shocked when I told her that she wasn’t going to get a reward every time that dentist ’ s chair. Fear and hate pretty
we get her teeth checked. Clearly, she’s not alone. According to some parenting experts, kids are easily addicted to a benefit-producing system of parental rewards and bribes (贿赂) — it’s not all ice creams, candies and cool toys. Some parents are offering their children prizes to just let them sit down and behave in a restaurant — or sleep in their own beds — or score a goal in the next soccer game. While the experts agree that occasional awards are okay, the danger lies in the system’s overuse. Kids quickly gain a sense of entitlement (应得的权利), where they come to expect a big reward for every good thing that they do, no matter how small. To keep things in check, experts say parents should reduce the number of rewards they offer, make sure rewards match the behavior and explain the real benefits of behaving for the sake of behaving. Have you used bribery or a reward system with your kids? Was it successful? Do your kids expect more because of that system? 47. The intended readers of the passage are ______. A. children C. doctors B. parents D. teachers
48. What does the author mean by saying “the scene of the crime”? A. He / she doubted whether the dentist was skilled. B. He / she felt very sorry for his / her daughter’s illness. C. His / her dentist’s. D. His / her daughter suffered a lot from her illness. 49. Similar to the author’s daughter, children ______. A. are often troubled by bad teeth B. receive certain rewards when becoming ill C. are afraid to visit a dentist D. expect more rewards from their parents 50. Misguided by the parental reward system, children easily think ______. A. they behavior B. they can be successful as long as they work hard C. their parents must be far more rich than others’ D. their parents will feel happy when they behave well should benefit from their every desired daughter had a bad feeling for the
E★★ Robert Rosenthal and Lenore Jacobson report and
discuss the Pygmalion Effect in great detail. In their study, they showed that if teachers were led to expect improved performance from some children, then the children did indeed show that improvement. In some cases such im-provement was about twice that shown by other children in the same class. The purpose of the experiment was to support the hypothesis （假设） that reality can be influenced by the expectations of others. This influence can be beneficial as well as detrimental depending on which label （ 称 谓 ） an individual is assigned. The observer-expectancy effect, which involves an experimenter’s unconsciously biased expectations, is tested in real life situations. Rosenthal suggested that biased expectancies can essentially affect reality and create self-fulfilling predictions as a result. In this experiment, Rosenthal predicted that, when given the information that certain students are brighter than others, elementary school teachers may unconsciously behave in ways that encourage the students’ success. The previous research that motivated this study was done in 1911 by psychologists regarding the case of Clever Hans, a horse that gained notoriety because it was supposed to be able to read, spell and solve math problems by using its hoof to answer
questions. Many skeptics suggested that questioners and observers were unintentionally signaling Clever Hans. Although not of central importance here, of huge importance in educational research in general is the issue of teacher effects. Tim O’Shea has said that in all studies where one of the variables was the teacher, the effect of different teachers was always bigger than the effect of different treatments (usually the actual subject to be studied). Basically, teachers have a huge effect, but it’s poorly understood. 51. What does the passage mainly talk about? A. The Pygmalion Effect will be widely used in teaching. B. Teachers should give students more encouragement. C. Students should try to be more confident. D. The Pygmalion Effect has a great impact on a student’s progress. 52. The underlined word “detrimental” in Paragraph 2 means “_____”. A. risky C. essential B. harmful D. frightening
53. What did Robert Rosenthal and Lenore Jacobson’s experiment conclude?
A. When students were expected to improve their performance by teachers, they would show that improvement as a result. B. Clever Hans was able to read, spell and solve math problems by using its hoof to answer questions. C. Parents were not of central importance in education, but teachers were. D. The effect of different teachers was sometimes bigger than the effect of different subjects. 54. The underlined sentence in the last paragraph means that _____. A. the Pygmalion Effect has no influence on teachers B. the Pygmalion Effect is too difficult for teachers to understand C. teachers’ effect on a student’s progress isn’t of much importance D. people don’t know much about teachers’ importance 55. According to the passage, who play the most important role? A. Researchers. C. Parents. 写作（共两节） 第一节 短文改错（共 10 小题） B. Teachers. D. Students.
