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，并在答题卡上 将该项涂黑。 A Looking at his sister, Emily, Samuel said, “I wouldn’t have thought Everett would be
a thief.” Emily replied, “Whoa, we don’t know that for sure.” Samuel said, “But who else could it be? He was there, he had them in his hands, and now they are missing.” Samuel remembered two days ago when he had brought out his coin collection for Everett to see. At the end of that day, Samuel’s mother asked him to take a note to Mr. Bates down the street, so he asked his friend, “Is it okay if I leave you for a few minutes?” Everett had said, “Go ahead. I’ll clean up here,” pointing at the coins on the floor. When Samuel returned, he had done his homework, had eaten dinner, and had read for a while before bed. It was not until two days later that he realized the quarters(2 角 5 分硬币) were gone. Emily said, “Why don’t you just ask him?” “Ask him what? Hey, Best Friend, did you steal my coin collection?” Samuel thought for a moment, deciding if that would be a good idea. The theft of his collection left him with a feeling of betrayal (背叛). “How could I have misconceived my friend?” The next day Samuel went over to Everett’s house. Everett was acting funny. In fact, Samuel thought Everett was acting like someone with a secret. Suddenly, Everett cried, “I can’t stand it any more!” and pulled something from beneath the chair. “Go on—open it! I was going to wait until your birthday tomorrow, but I can’t wait!” Slowly, Samuel lifted the top of the box. Laid out in front of him were all of the quarters from his coin collection. Each quarter was in its own place in a new collection box. Each quarter shone like it was new. Samuel felt heat rush over his neck and ears. He weakly said, “Thank you—this means... a great deal to me.” He was thankful that Everett had cut him off before he said something bad. Everett was exactly the type of person he wanted as a friend! 21. From the first three paragraphs, we know that _________. A. Everett lives down the street B. Everett had stolen Samuel’s coins C. Samuel has a bad memory D. Samuel’s coins were missing 22. The word “misconceived” in Paragraph 3 can be replaced by _________. A. refused B. mistaken C. hated D. troubled 23.

Rowling said
she had once been so depressed(抑郁)that she wanted to kill herself. Rowling, 42, went through a low period in her mid–20’s, ending the marriage(婚 姻) with her first husband. She had not become famous and rich with the Harry Potter series of books and was a single mother, fighting to earn a living. “The thing that made me go for help,” said Rowling, “ was probably my daughter. She was something that comforted me and encouraged me. She cannot grow up with me in this condition.” Her first try of getting help was a failure, however. The substitute（替班） doctor who took the place of her regular doctor ignored the signs of her suicide(自 杀) and sent her home, telling her to come to speak with the practice nurse if she felt “a bit low”. “We are talking suicidal thoughts here,” said Rowling. “We are not talking about I am a little bit painful.” Luckily for Rowling, her regular doctor was more sensitive and called her back into her office and got her in to consult. “She saved me because I don’t think I would have had the courage to go and do it twice.” “I have never been ashamed(羞愧) of having been depressed,” added Rowling. “Never. What is to be ashamed of? Nobody can escape a hard time in life. I went through a really difficult time and I am quite proud that I got out of that.” 28. What caused Rowling’s depression? A. Her low income. B. Her unsuccessful marriage. C. Her first rude husband. D. The character of Harry Potter. 29. Rowling decided to face her problem bravely because she had to _________. A. bring up her daughter B. finish her Harry Potter series of books C. follow her doctor’s advice D. make money to feed a big family 30. From the passage we can know the substitute doctor _________. A. called Rowling back for a second examination B. was more sensitive than Rowling’s regular doctor C. didn’t think Rowling’s depression was serious D. just talked with Rowling to calm her down 31.It can be inferred from the last paragraph that Rowling was _________. A. a proud woman B. easy to be depressed C. the author of Harry Potter D. a strong-willed woman D Opposite to what you may have heard, teenagers aren’t all about social networking, iPods, the supermarkets and famous people any more. Growing numbers of teenagers are giving us a new face: a socially responsible young kid. They’re not only doing good in their local communities （社区） ,but they’re also having a global influence. Many of them have created free websites, attracting kids who also want to help others like themselves. “They are the most socially aware(有意识的) kids ever,” says Michael Ungar, a professor of social work at Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia. “They do care about the global community.” Craig Kielburger, 27, of Toronto, started Free the Children, at age 12 after
hearing about the death of a 12-year-old child laborer(童工). He said his parents were ordinary people, but their actions made an impression. His mother would ask the homeless their names as she helped them. “I’ll never forget that simple life lesson: to recognize somebody’s humanity(人性) and not just to walk by. It was a simple thing she did, but those kinds of teachings had a strong influence on how we looked at the world.” His father would “ put the newspaper on the table and read it with family, talking about what was happening in the world. He saw it as a chance to have a conversation with us to open our eyes to what was going on in the world,” says Kielburger, the author of The World Needs Your Kid. He says parents need to encourage their kids to be caring and merciful. “We need people who care about others.” 32.We learn from the first paragraph that people_________. A. are very proud of teenagers B. begin to think highly of teenagers C. usually have a low opinion of teenagers D. think teenagers have too much freedom 33.Craig Kielburger started Free the Children probably because_________.

Craig Kielburger’s father read the newspaper with his family to_________. A. have a good time with his family B. allow his children to care about the homeless C. let his children receive new knowledge every day D. encourage them to read The World Needs Your Kid 35.We can infer from Kielburger’s story that_________. A. parents can have a good influence on children B. reading newspapers every day is a good habit C. it’s better for the whole family to learn together D. those who care for others should set up websites 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。 Recently, your job has taken up much of your time.
