A At just six years old, Joey Kilpatrick is Australia?s unofficial hide -and-seek champion after he hid in a bedroom cupboard for eight hours while playing his favourite game, causing a massive rescue operation. The determined little boy?s disappearing act led to a full-scale search, including nine police officers, five State Emergency Service volunteers, tracker dogs and almost all of the residents(居民) of the town of Goombungee. His mother, Chris, says she called the police when Joey disappeared one afternoon after telling his older brother, Lachlan, 14, that he was off to play hide-and-seek. “I called the two boys for dinner, ” Chris says. “After about 20 minutes I started to worry.

Within minutes of Chris calling the authorities, the police started on of the biggest ground searches in the town?s history. “I was really scared.

Senior constable(巡警), Chris Brameld, from Goombungee police, says he is glad that Joey?s game had a happy ending: “When we realized he was safe, we agreed that it doesn?t get much better than that!” And young Joey promises that next time he won?t be so intent on finding t he best hiding place. “I want to say sorry to the policemen and to Mummy for scaring them, ” he says. “ I promise next time I?ll hide where they can find me and I won?t fall asleep!” 56.

C Among all the fast growing science and technology, the research of human genes, or biological engineering as people call it, is drawing more and more attention now. Sometimes it is a hot topic discussed by people. The greatest thing that gene technology can do is to cure serious diseases that doctors at present can almost do nothing with, such as cancer and heart disease. Every year, millions of people are murdered by these two killers. And to date, doctors have not found an effective way to cure them. But if the gene technology is applied, not only these two diseases can be cured completely, bringing happiness and more living days to the patients, but also the great amount of money people spend on curing their diseases can be saved, therefore it benefits the economy as well. In addition, human life span(寿命)can be prolonged. Gene technology can help people to give birth to more healthy and clever children. Some families, with the English imperial family being a good example, have hereditary diseases. This means their children will for sure have the family disease, which is a great trouble for these families. In the past, doctors could do nothing about hereditary diseases. But gene technology can solve this problem perfectly. The scientist just need to find the wrong gene and correct it, and a healthy child will be

born. Some people are worrying that the gene research can be used to manufacture human beings in large quantities. In the past few years, scientists have succeeded in cloning a sheep, therefore these people predict that human babies would soon be cloned. But I believe cloned babies will not come out in large quantities, for most couples in the world can have babies in very normal way. Of course, the governments muse take care to control gene technology. 66. What does “these two killers” in the second paragraph refer to? A Gene technology and another treatment of the two diseases B Hereditary diseases and cancer. C The two murderers who killed the cloned baby. D The two diseases of cancer and heart disease 67. What?s the main idea of the third paragraph? A Gene technology can help people to give birth to a baby. B Gene technology can help the English imperial family out. C How gene technology can be applied in the field of treating hereditary diseases. D Gene technology can be used to clone human babies 68. In what way gene technology can help to treat hereditary diseases? A Using gene technology, scientist finds the wrong gene and corrects it. B Using gene technology, human babies can be cloned. C Using gene technology, people with hereditary diseases can have more living days. D Doctors can cure cancer and heart disease with the help of gene technology. 69. What is the main purpose of writing this passage? A Telling people the advantages of gene technology. B Explaining that gene technology will also do harm to the humanity C Telling the readers that gene technology will not benefit people D Expressing the writer?s idea that gene technology will benefit people 70. Which of the following worries people by using this technology? A Scientists have already successfully cloned sheep B The government will take action to control it . C A good number of babies will be cloned D Most couple will normally give birth to babies. PART IV WRITING (45 marks) Section A (10 marks) Directions: Read the following passage. Complete the diagram by using the information from the passage. Write NO MORE THAN THREE WORDS for each answer. Most people think of a green house as a special glass building used to grow plants all year long. Now there is another definition. A green house is the result of an effort to produce houses that are less harmful to the environment than other houses. Recent films, books, magazines and newspapers have reported serious threat to the environment. Changes in climate, increasing pollution, rising energy demands and

decreasing supplies of water are worldwide problems. Designers and builders around the world are reacting to there environment concerns. Green houses are designed to be sustainable. Something that is sustainable provides people with what they need, without using up or damaging the natural resources that people will need in the future. Green houses use much fewer fossil fuels --- oil, gas and coal --- for energy. The houses are on the land so the sun warm them during cold months and are blocked during hot months. The houses have plenty of windows that open to let in cooling air. They have special equipment that uses a lot less water. Green houses are made of wood from fast-growing trees, so old growth forests do not have to be cut. They include recycled materials so old things are reused, not thrown away as waste. The houses are healthier for people to live in. Materials used in them are not processed with strong chemicals that can produce harmful gases. Houses that are environmentally friendly are not new. For years, architects(建筑 师)in many parts of the world have designed and built them for environmental activists. But now, rapidly rising energy costs are increasing the demand worldwide for houses that use less energy and other resources. Title: 71. Old: 73. used to grow plants all year long 72.

Section B (10 marks) Directions: Read the following passage.Answer the questions according to the information given in the passage and the required words limit. Sometimes it?s dangerous for you to adventure out on a mountain with no company. It?s not just wild animals, the harsh(恶劣的)environment you have to deal

with, but the fact that climate in the mountain can change rapidly, from being sunny one moment to being foggy and then rainy the very next. Therefore, you need to learn some strategies for surviving in the mountains when you are alone. An important skill you should be good at when surviving alone on a mountain is building a campfire. Not only does it protect you from the cold, but you also can use it for cooking, as well as frightening away dangerous animals. Next, you should be good at rope management. Learn the technique of tying various knots which will help you while rappelling(绕绳下降). And don?t allow the ropes to get wet. Building a shelter quickly is also important. For this, practice building a lean-to(单 坡屋顶) using two trees next to each other. Ensure the lean-to doesn?t face the wind. And you can spread a layer(层) of leaves over the ground inside the lean-to, so you don?t come in direct contact with the cold ground. In addition, you should be informed on how to deal with wild animals. Animals generally don?t hunt humans, but they may follow you, so be careful. Leftover trash and food is the main reason animals approach humans. If you come across an animal in the wild, don?t do anything to provoke(惹起) it further. Leave a good space between the animal and keep calm, till the animal wanders off. Being mentally prepared is as important as being physically prepared. Be aware of your own limitations and fears. In life-threatening situations, weigh the pros and cons and act accordingly. Practice all the skills that are important to your survival especially when you?re alone. All this will help you survive alone in a mountain! 81. What can cause dangers to you when you are adventuring alone in a mountain? (No more than 10 words) 82. Why do you build a campfire when you?re alone in a mountain? (No more than 12 words) 83. Why are you advised to spread leaves over the ground in the lean-to? (No more than 8 words) 84. What is the passage mainly about? (No more than 8 words)

Mind Your Behavior in Public Places Last Sunday, I went sightseeing with my friends in the Fairy Lake Park. The park was full of freshness and beauty of spring, with the sun shining and birds singing. When I was enjoying the fantastic scenery around, something unpleasant caught my eyes. A young couple in a boat were eating, talking and laughing loudly as if they were the only people in the world. What’s worse, they spat and even threw rubbish into the lake, totally ignoring the noticeable sign “No littering” nearby. What a shame! Such behavior left me deep in thought. If all visitors to the Fairy Lake Park do as the couple did, the lake will be severely polluted and soon turned into a huge dustbin. I think all of us should mind our behavior in public places. Only in this way can we live in more comfortable and beautiful surroundings.
