四、阅读理解（共 20 小题，每小题 1 分，满分 20 分） 阅读下面文章，根据文章内容，从每小题所给出的 A、B、C、D 四个选项中选出最佳选项。
Pakistan is observing a day of national mourning(全国哀悼) after 152 people were killed in the country’s worst-ever air disaster. Officials say weather is limiting the search underway to find the “black box” with all of the flight data. Pakistani officials say the heavy rains also are limiting efforts to recover the remains of victims(遇难者遗骸) in the Margalla hills surrounding Islamabad, where Wednesday’s plane crash occurred. Officials guess thick fog and rainy weather are the most likely reasons for the worst air disaster in Pakistan. National Disaster Management Committee head Nadeem Ahmed said that rescue teams have recovered most of the bodies, while technical experts are still searching for the Flight Data Recorder ——commonly known as the “black box”——to look into the cause of the deadly crash. The control tower（控制塔）at the Islamabad airport has been closed and investigators(调查人 员) are examining radio traffic between the plane and the tower to determine causes of the crash. Interior(内政的) Minister Rehman Malik told a news conference in Islamabad about 70 bodies have been identified and handed over to their relatives, while experts are conducting DNA tests to identify remains of other victims. The government declared a day of national mourning for the victims. The commercial passenger plane belonging to the private “Airblue” service was coming from the southern port city of Karachi and crashed as it attempted to land at Islamabad’s international airport. All of the 152 people on board were killed, including the six crew members. Top officials of the private airline insisted the Airbus 321 was not very old and there was nothing technically wrong with it. Airblue is the biggest private airline in Pakistan and started its domestic and limited overseas operations in 2004. 51. How many passengers were killed in the air crash? A. 152. B. 146. C. 321. D. 298. 52. What caused the terrible air disaster? A. Thick fog and raining weather are the most probable reasons. B. The plane was very old and there was something technically wrong with it. C. There was something wrong with radio traffic between the plane and tower. D. Terrorists may attack the plane from in the Margalla hills surrounding Islamabad. 53. Which of the following statements is TRUE? A. All the bodies were handed over to their relatives. B. The plane was headed from Karachi to Islamabad. C. There were some technical problems with the “black box”. D. Some rescue teams were trying to search for the “black box”. 54. What does the underline word “domestic” mean in the last paragraph? A. Public. B. International. C. Private. D. Home. 55. What’s the best title of this passage? A. No Survivors in Pakistan Air Crash. B. Pakistan Mourns Air Crash Victims. C. A Worst-Ever Air Disaster in Pakistan. D. Pakistanis Were in Deep Sorrow at the Bad News
I received pictures of my daughter floating (漂浮) on a lake in California. Right there under the sun during the hottest time of the day, she has only her swimsuit to cover her. When I showed it to my students, it was as if I had shown them scenes from a horror (恐怖) movie. “But she will get dark,” they said. “That’s what she wants,” I told them. “We think darker skin (肤色) is beautiful.” They looked at me in disbelief. It was as if I came from the moon. For years, American girls spend their summer trying to get as tanned (晒黑) as possible. In China, on the other hand, girls use umbrellas all year round. What in the world is going on? The pale skin we think looks unattractive is what Asian women want. Both groups want to meet their culture’s standard (标准) of beauty. In the US, if you can afford to go on vacation in the summer, you head for a river, a lake or a beach, where you try to get as much sun as possible. If you are rich you take a winter vacation in some sunny spot. Your winter tan shows your wealth. In China, once upon a time, the few wealthy were the ones who didn’t have to work out in the hot sun. So the whiter the skin, the richer the woman. The folk opera performers who play these ladies wore lots of white makeup (妆容). The tradition survives to this day. So it comes naturally that none of my students wishes to follow the Western ways in this regard. But now I am noticing that a new business – the tanning booth (美黑店) – started up in China. I admire those brave enough to define（给…下定义）their own idea of beauty, but I do wonder what their grandmothers would have to say to them about it! 56. The students were shocked at the picture the writer showed them because ______. A. they thought it shameful for a girl only to wear a swimsuit B. with the powerful sunlight the writer’s daughter would have got a suntan C. the writer’s daughter was wearing very little while out in the sun D. it is dangerous for a girl to be out on a lake alone 57. What does the underline word “unattractive” mean in the passage? A. 不漂亮 B. 不标准 C. 不可接受 D. 不健康 58. According to the article, which kind of woman meets the American standard of beauty? A. Women with blond hair. C. Women with tanned skin. A. is hard-working C. has a lot of money and spare time A. is not interested in C. doesn’t like B. Women with a slim figure. D. Women with pale skin. B. doesn’t have to work D. is from a very poor family B. doesn’t understand D. has mixed feelings about
59. In the US a winter tan usually means the person _____.
60. The writer ______ the tanning booth started up in China.
Tissue(组织)transplants and organ transplants are both used in the treatment of disease. Tissue transplants include the transplanting of skin, bones, and the cornea(角膜) of the eye; whereas organ transplanting includes replacing the kidney, heart, lung, and liver. Skin and cornea transplants are very common and successful, and have been performed for hundreds of years. In fact, there is evidence that skin transplants were done as early as 600 B.C. in India. Organ transplants, on the other hand, are quite recent. They are also more difficult to perform. Moreover, it is not always easy to find a suitable donor(移植体). Even if a healthy organ is found, the receiver’s body may reject it. This is the major reason for problems with organ transplants. The first heart transplant was performed by Dr. Christian Barnard in 1967 in South Africa. Many successful heart transplant operations have been performed since then. In 1982, Dr. Barney Clark was the first to receive an artificial heart. Research into organ transplants continues all the time. Doctors are continuing to find new ways to combat the problems, and make transplants safer and more available to needy people. 61. Which of the following is a tissue transplant? A. Kidney. B. Skin. C. Lung. D. Liver. 62. As early as 600 B. C. , there were . A. organ transplants B. cornea replacements C. skin transplants D. artificial hearts 63. The most common problem with organ transplants is . A. rejection of the tissue B. finding a donor C. finding a healthy organ D. replacing the organ 64.

C. Many successful heart transplant operations have been performed since 1967. D. Dr. Christian Barnard successfully performed the first heart transplant in 1982 in South Africa. 65. The best title for the passage is ______________. A. The Treatment of Disease B. The First Heart Transplants C. Successful Organ Transplants D. Transplants: Past and Present D People People is America’s NO.1 magazine about fascinating(迷人的)people.

Low carbon means low energy and no waste. It is so important that I can’t wait to present my ideas on it. On the first place, a no-car day is supposed to set up every week. Because cars not only cause serious air pollution but also waste energy. On no car day, no one is allowed to drive to street, to school or to work. Just walk or cycle. Use our legs and enjoy the fun. On the second place, we had best not use plastic bags any more. No one can stand the “while pollution”. So we should use the bags which can be reused again and again. Finally, as we know, every big things comes from the small one. Therefore, we ought to turn out the lights the moment we leave, turn off the tap in time, and reuse our textbooks and so on. All in all, all of us should put the low carbon lifestyle into practice. Just set our mind to these: no-car day, no plastic bags, and no waste. Let’s do it now.
