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。 A Liquid Paper (修正液) was invented by Bette Nesmith Graham. She was 17 when she got a job at a Texas bank as a secretary, even though she didn’t know how to type. The company she worked for sent her to a secretary school, and she was typing in no time at all. The 1950s had seen the widespread use of the electric typewriter, which typed faster but also meant more mistakes. Also, mistakes made by early electric typewriters were very hard to erase, which caused problems for Bette. In order to make extra money she used her talent to paint holiday windows at the bank. Then one day, it suddenly occurred to her that she could create a paint to cover up typewriting mistakes. It worked! In 1956, Bette sold her first bottles of the new product, which she called “Mistake Out”. She made it in her kitchen, and her son Michael and his friends bottled it in the family garage. By 1957, she was selling 100 bottles a month and had gotten a patent (专利) for her product, which she now called “Liquid Paper.” Sales continued to grow, as more and more people heard about Liquid Paper, through
word-of-mouth and by reading about it in magazines. In the 1960s, Bette bought a machine to help her produce Liquid Paper in large quantities. In 1971, she sold 2 million bottles. In 1979, she sold the company for 47.5 million dollars. She didn’t live to see the end of the contract (合同), dying in 1980, at the age of 56, in Texas. Bette’s invention continues to be used every day by secretaries and other people in the office and wherever typewriters are used. 21. When Bette began to work in a bank, she ______. A. was too young to type C. wasn’t experienced in typing A. was produced by hand C. was bottled in the kitchen 23. What is the passage mainly about? A. A rock group. A. importance B. A secretary. B. time C. Liquid Paper. C. space B How are you and your family going to celebrate Earth Day? It’s great day to get outside and ride a bike, but there are other ways you could spend the day. Here are four books. You can learn more about the earth and the animals that make the world a special place to live. The Busy Beaver, by Nicholas Oldland Beaver is very busy, and he doesn’t always think carefully. As a result, he makes a mess of the forest and ends up in hospital. Finally, he realizes how careless he’s been and decides to make things right when he returns to the forest. Lessons from Mother Earth, by Elaine Mcleod Five-year-old Tess is visiting her grandmother and, for the first time, she visits the garden. Along the way, Tess’s grandmother tells her the rules of the garden, “You must always take good care of our garden. Never throw rubbish around. There is plenty for everyone to share if we don’t destroy the soil.” The story is beautifully told as a caring conversation between a child and her grandmother. Luz See the Light, by Claudia Davila When Luz’s community experiences a series of black-outs (停电) , she quickly comes to understand the need to save energy and find other ways of doing things . With the help of her friends and neighbors, she creates a community garden and park that everyone can use. The book attracts many young readers. The Lorax, by Dr. Seuss A young boy learns of the role of the Lorax as protector of the trees, and how his home became polluted. The book contains memorable of forestry conservation (保护) . 25.

A. To provide some activities to Earth Day. B. To offer some books to young children. C. To tell readers how to write children’s books. D. To teach readers how to protect our environment. C There was a man playing the piano in a bar. He was a good piano player and always performed in this bar. People came in just to hear him play. But one night, a customer told him that he didn’t want to hear him just play the piano any more. He wanted him to sing a song. The man said, “I don’t sing.” But the customer was persistent (固执的). He told the bar manager, “I’m tired of listening to the piano. I want that man to sing!” The manager shouted across the room, “If you want to get paid, sing a song. Our customers are asking you to sing!” So he did. He sang a song. A piano player who had never sung in public did so for the first time. And everyone was surprised by his song — “Mona, Mona Lisa”. He got lots of applause (掌声) that night. He had such a talent for singing, but he just had been sitting on his talent for the past years! If without such a chance, he may have lived the rest of his life as a no-name piano player in a no-name bar. However, now he had become one of the best-known singers in America. You, too, have skills and abilities. Maybe your “talent” is not as great as the singer above, but it may be better than you think! And with effort, most skills can be improved. So, in your life, you should be brave enough to try doing different things and find out what talents you really have! 29. Why did the man start to sing? A. Because he wanted to make more money. B. Because the bar manager said he liked his song. C. Because the manager asked him to sing at the request of a customer. D. Because he wanted to show everyone that he had a talent for singing. 30. What do you think of the bar manager? A. Strict. B. Rude. C. Patient. B. He didn’t sing. D. He hated to sing. D Have you ever wanted to be healthier? Get a pet! That is what the experts are saying. There are many advantages to owning a pet, no matter whether it is a cat, dog, or horse. Some new parents are often in a rush to get rid of their pets when a baby is expected. Yet, studies have shown that having a pet at home actually reduces a child’s likelihood of developing certain kinds of diseases. In one study, a researcher studied 300 new-born babies and tested them again a year later. He found that if they had a dog at home the children had up to 33% fewer allergies (过敏症). In addition, the children had stronger immune systems (免疫系统) when compared to the babies of homes with no pets.
31. What do the underlined words “he just had been sitting on his talent” probably mean? A. He didn’t discover his talent. C. He had no talent for singing.
In another study, researchers tested nearly 4,500 people. They found that cat owners who spent time stroking (抚摸) their cats suffered 40% fewer heart attacks than those who did not own a cat. Some other studies also found that pet owners suffered less serious from depression (沮丧) than non-pet owners. Horses have long been used in treatments for disabled people, both physically and mentally. Not only does the movement of the horse help people with physical problems, but the calming influence of the animals has a positive effect on them, too. Amazing changes have been noted in disabled people who are lucky enough to receive these treatments. From cats to horses, having a pet can really have positive effects on our health. 32. What does the underlined word in the second paragraph probably mean? A. Degree. B. Possibility. C. Opportunity. D. Decision. 33. From the second and third paragraphs, we can infer that ______. A. having a pet at home makes a baby weak B. the children in home without a dog may have strong immune system C. non-pet owners may easily suffer from depression than pet owners D. keeping a pet cat is better than keeping a pet dog 34. What is the main idea of the fourth paragraph? A. How to raise a horse. B. The way of keeping healthy. C. How horses benefit disabled people. D. How to treat disabled people. 35. Which of the following is TRUE according to the text? A. New parents sometimes refuse to have a pet when they have a baby. B. If you want to keep healthy, do nothing but keep a pet. C. Cat owners suffer more heart attacks than others. D. Horses can cure the problems of disabled people. 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。 Teamwork is the ability to work together with other members toward a common goal. 36 Many factors influence the working of a team.
