the school?s headmaster. The school says no cheating （作弊） happened in the test. Next year, it wants 80％ of its exams to be without teachers. But students have different ideas. “I was happy and excited during the exam because my teachers trusted （信 任）me, ”said Lang Yudan, a 13-year-old girl in Class 11. “Schools must trust students a lot not to use invigilators （监考人）. But I think it is too early. Some students will cheat if there are no invigilators.

I would get higher marks without them in the room because I would feel more relaxed. ”Liu Qingxi said. “I think it?s very important to have invigilators in exams. Many students want to check their answers with each other after they have finished papers. And they can also keep the classroom in order when something unusual happens.

move through towns and cities towards the capital, Baghdad （巴格达）. We see these children following parents, carrying bags of almost the same size as their small bodies as they escape from their homes in Baghdad. They show just some of the young lives that have been turned upside down by ongoing war and the terrible price paid by Iraqi children. “Dad, why are the Americans fighting against us? Are we going to be killed? ”asks the son of Abu Singar, an Iraqi engineer. Abu finds it hard to explain this war to his eight-year-old son.

（A） A good memory is a great help in learning a language. Everybody learns his own language by remembering what he hears when he is a small child, and some
第 23 页 共 70 页
children －like boys and girls who live abroad with their parents－seem to learn two languages almost as easily as one. In school it is not easy to learn a second language because the pupils have so little time for it, and they are busy with other subjects, too. Our mind is rather like a camera, but it takes photos not only of what we see but of what we feel, hear, smell and taste. When we take a real photo with a camera, there is much to do before the photo is finished and ready to show to our friends. In the same way there is much work to be done before we can keep a picture forever （永远）in our mind. Memory is the diary that we all carry about with us. （ ）1.

（B） The world is not only hungry, it will also be thirsty for water. About 97% of water on the earth is sea water, or salt water. Man can only drink or use the other 3％of the fresh water （淡水） which comes from rivers, lakes and underground. On the other hand, because the number of people in the world is becoming larger and larger, more and more fresh water is needed. So water shortage becomes a big problem. How can we work out this problem? Scientists have found some ways to turn salt water into fresh water. One important way is to boil （使达到沸点）sea water with high heat until vapor （蒸汽）rises, leaving the salt. In this way, a lot of fresh water can be made quickly. But heating is not the only way to get fresh water. Other ways are tried, for example, digging deep wells, keeping rain water and preventing rivers from being polluted. Which way is the best?

（C） Today there are 6 billion people on the earth. By the year 2050 there may be 12.5 billion. This is a lot of people to feed. We need more food. One way to produce more food is by growing stronger plants. For thousands of years, farmers have made plants better. Every season, they pick the best plants for the next season. It works very slowly. Since 1983, scientists have been able to change plants more quickly by changing their genetic material（遗传物质） . Foods from plants grown in this way are called genetically modified foods （转基因食 品）, or GM foods. By changing the genetic material of a plant, it is possible to make new plants. They make plants which are strong against plant diseases. They can also help in our diseases: a kind of rice is being prepared （准备）, for example, which stops people from becoming blind. Rich countries produce GM foods because they are easy to grow and bring in more money. Poor countries are interested in them because they help produce more food. GM plants are not natural. No one knows how good or bad they are. Making GM foods is only one way of feeding people in 2050. There are strong feelings against them, because they are unnatural. They may feed people, then hurt them or their children later. But, both rich and poor countries are very interested in their use,

A man once had a dream about the Black Forest in Germany. In his dream he was walking in the forest when two men ran out and tried to throw him to the ground. He ran off as fast as he could, but they followed him. He reached a place where he saw two roads in front of him, one to the right and the other to the left. Which road should he take? He heard the two men behind him, getting nearer, and at the same time he heard a voice in his ear. It told him to go to the right, and he did so. He ran on and soon came to a small hotel. He was received there kindly and given a room, and he was saved from the two men. That was the dream. Twenty years later he was really in the Black Forest and, as happened in the dream long ago, two men ran out and tried to throw him down. He ran off, and came to a place with two roads, like in the dream. He remembered the dream and took the road to the right. He soon reached a small hotel, was taken in, and so was safe.

“Cool”is a word with many meanings. Its old meaning is used to express a temperature that is a little bit cold. As the world has changed, the word has had many different meanings. “Cool”can be used to express feelings of interest in almost anything. When you see a famous car in the street, maybe you will say, “It?s cool.”You may think, “He?s so cool，”when you see your favourite footballer. We all maximize （扩大） the meaning of “cool”.

There are many wetlands(湿地)in China and some of them have become the world's important wetlands. The Chinese Yellow, Sea Wetlands are among them. They are in Yancheng, Jiangsu Province. They are home for many different kinds of birds and animals. The world's largest Milu Deer Nature Reserve(自然保护区) is in them. More than 700 milu deer live freely there. There are not many red-crowned cranes in the world, but every winter you can see some in the Red-Crowned Cranes Nature Reserve in the Yellow Sea Wetlands. The temperature in the wetlands is usually neither too high nor too low. There is a lot of rain and sunshine, too. They are really good places for wildlife(野生动 物). Offering food and home for some special kinds of animals and birds is not the only reason why we need to protect wetlands. Wetlands are important because they also prevent flood. But some people want to change
the wetlands to make more space for farms and buildings. This means there will be less and less space for wildlife. Luckily, more and more people are beginning to realize the importance of wetlands and wildlife. Every year, on February 2nd, many activities are held to tell people more about wetlands.

第十一组至第十四组共 13 篇： 阅读下面短文判断正（T） 、错误（F） 第十一组（共 3 篇） ： (A) The summer vacation is over. It?s true that time always flies fast. During the vacation, the weather was hot and I could not do much work, but I lived happily. As the afternoon was hot, I did my work in the morning. I used to get up at 6:30 and take a walk in the garden for half an hour. After breakfast, I began reading English and Chinese and did some exercises in maths. Those took me three hours or more. I worked quite hard and made good progress(取得进步). I spent the afternoon outside. I went to swim and it was funny. I would not go home until it was about five or six o?clock. Sometimes a friend of mine would come to see me and we would spend some hours listening to music. In this way I spent my vacation happily. And I not only studied well but also became a good swimmer. Now I am in good health and high spirits(精神). （ ）1The text mainly tell us how the writer spent his summer holidays.

The writer spent more time swimming than listening to music. (B) Some people remember the things by writing notes to themselves. Then they
leave the notes in obvious(明显的) places, such as on the table or on the floor in the middle of the living room. I don?t think I like to write notes to myself. Most of the time I lose them or forget to look at them until it?s too late. I prefer to use an alarm clock （闹钟) to tell me what I should do. I have ten alarm clocks in my house. They could tell me about things. For example, if I have to make a telephone call at a certain time, I?ll set an alarm clock to go off a few minutes early and put the clock by the telephone. Or if I want to watch a certain television programme, I?ll set an alarm clock at the right time and put the clock on top of the TV set. I can remember almost anything if I use my clocks. However, sometimes an alarm clock goes off and I don?t know what it means. I always remember setting it, but not why I set it.
