【阅读理解】社会生活类 Some people believe that a Robin Hood is at work, others that a wealthy person simply wants to distribute his or her fortune before dying. But the donator who started sending envelopes with cash to deserving causes, accompanied by an article from the local paper, has made a northern German city believe in fairytales(童话). The first envelope was sent to a victim support group. It contained 10,000 with a

cutting from the Braunschweiger Zeitung about how the group supported a woman who was robbed of her handbag; similar plain white anonymous(匿名) envelopes, each containing 10,000, then arrived at a kindergarten and a church. 190, 000 has been distributed. Last

The envelops keep coming, and so far at least

month, one of them was sent to the newspaper's own office. It came after a story it published about Tom, a 14yearold boy who was severely disabled in a swimming accident.

Spiegel magazine.“I had to park on the side of the road; I was speechless.” The money will be used to make the entrance to their house wheelchairaccessible and for a course of treatment that their insurance company refused to pay for. “For someone to act so selflessly, for this to happen in such a society in which everyone thinks of himself, was astonishing,” Mrs.Neumann said. Her family wonder whether the donator is a Robin Hood character, taking from banks to give to the needy. Henning Noske, the editor of the Braunschweiger Zeitung, said:“Maybe it is an old person who is about to die. We just do not know.”However, he has told his reporters not to look for the city's hero, for fear that discovery may stop the donations. 1.The Braunschweiger Zeitung is the name of ________.

阅读理解。 Can dogs and cats live in perfect harmony in the same home? People who are thinking about adopting a dog as a friend for their cats are worried that they will fight. A recent research has found a new recipe of success. According to the study, if the cat is adopted before the dog, and if they are introduced when still young (less than 6 months for cats, a year for dogs), it is highly probable that the two pets will get along swimmingly. Two-thirds of the homes interviewed reported a positive relationship between their cat and dog. However, it wasn’t all sweetness and light. There was a reported coldness between the cat and dog in 25% of the homes, while aggression and fighting were observed in 10% of the homes. One reason for this is probably that some of their body signals were just opposite. For example, when a cat turns its head away it signals aggression, while a dog doing the same signals submission. In homes with cats and dogs living peacefully, researchers observed a surprising behavior. They are learning how to talk each other’s language. It is a surprise that cats can learn how to talk ‘dog’, and dogs can learn how to talk ‘Cat’. What’s interesting is that both cats and dogs have appeared to develop their intelligence.

They can learn how to read each other’s body signals, suggesting that the two may have more in common than we previously suspected. Once familiar with each other’s presence and body language, cats and dogs can play together, greet each other nose to nose, and enjoy sleeping together on the sofa. They can easily share the same water bowl and in some cases groom (梳理) each other. The significance of the research on cats and dogs may go beyond pets-to people who don’t get along, including neighbors, colleagues at work, and even world superpowers. If cats and dogs can learn to get along, surely people have a good chance. ( ) 1. The underlined word swimmingly in Paragraph 1 is closest in meaning to ______. A. early B. sweetly C. quickly D. smoothly

( ) 2. Some cats and dogs may fight when ______. A. they are cold to each other B. they look away from each other C. they misunderstood each other’s signals D. they are introduced at an early age ( ) 3. What is found surprising about cats and dogs? A. They eat and sleep each other. B. They observe each other’s behaviors. C. They learn to speak each other’s language. D. They know something from each other’s voices. ( ) 4. It is suggested in Paragraph 4 that cats and dogs ______. A. have common interests B. are less different than was thought C. have a common body language D. are less intelligent than was expected ( ) 5. What can we human beings learn from cats and dogs? A. We should learn to live in harmony. B. We should know more about animals. C. We should live in peace with animals. D. We should learn more body languages.

这是一篇说明文,通过对猫狗和平相处的研究,让我们知道,人类应该和谐相处。 1. D 词意猜测题。 根据“A recent research has found a new recipe of success.”以 及“Two-thirds of the homes interviewed reported a positive relationship between their cat and dog.”不难得出,此处应该是说猫和狗相处得很好,所以选 D,意为“流畅 地, 顺利地” 。 此题易错选 B, 因为第二段第一句话中 sweet,但是 “sweetness and light” 意为“其乐融融” 。 2. C 细节理解题,根据第二段“One reason for this is probably that some of their body signals were just opposite. For example, when a cat turns its head away it signals aggression, while a dog doing the same signals submission”不难得出答案。 3. C 细节理解题, 根据第三段 “They are learning how to talk each other’s language. It is a surprise that cats can learn how to talk ‘dog’, and dogs can learn how to talk ‘Cat’. ” 不难得出答案, 此题易错选 B, 因为理解错了这句话 “researchers observed a surprising behavior.” 4. B 细节理解题 此处的 suggest 意为 “暗示” , 根据第四段 “suggesting that the two may have more in common than we previously suspected.”可以得出答案。 5. A 主旨大意题 根据全文尤其是最后一段不难得出答案。

阅读理解。 I think it was my mother who taught me the meaning of honesty. Not because she actually was honest, but because she lied all the time. She felt that the easiest way out of any given situation was generally the best way out. And, for her, that generally meant telling a “little white lie.” As a young child I thought it was kind of cool. And, naturally, when I would come to her with a concern or question wondering what I should do, she generally advised me to lie. “Mom, I told Theresa that I would go over to her house, but now I would rather go to Sue’s house to play.” “Tell Theresa you’re sick,” she would advise. And generally I did. But I didn’t seem blessed with her lack of conscience. On many painful occasions Theresa would find out that I really went to Sue’s house without her. These occasions taught me that it is more painful to be caught in a lie than it is to tell the truth in the first place. I wondered how it was possible that my mother had never


learned that lesson. I started thinking of all the lies that I’d heard her tell. I remembered the time she told someone that her favorite restaurant had closed, because she didn’t want to see them there anymore. Or the time she told Dad that she loved the lawn-mower he gave her for her birthday. Or when she claimed that our phone lines had been down when she was trying to explain why she hadn’t been in touch with a friend of hers for weeks. And what bothered me even more were all the times she had involved me into her lies. Like the time she told my guidance counselor that I had to miss school for exploratory surgery, when she really needed me to babysit. And it even started to bother me when someone would call for her and she would ask me to tell them that she wasn’t there. So, I started my own personal fight against her dishonesty. When I answered the phone and it was someone my mother didn’t want to talk to, I said, “Louise, mom is here, but she doesn’t want to talk to you.” The first time I did it, she punished me, but I refused to apologize. I told her that I had decided that it was wrong to lie. And the next time it happened I did the same thing. Finally, she approached me and said, “I agree that lying is not the best thing to do, but we need to find a way to be honest without being rude.” She admitted that her methods weren’t right, and I admitted that mine were a bit too extreme. Over the past few years, the two of us have worked together to be honest—and yet kind. Honesty should mean more than not lying. It should mean speaking the truth in kindness. Though I started by trying to teach my mom the importance of honesty, I ended up gaining a deeper understanding of the meaning of the term. 1. The author’s mother __________. A. thought white lies were not lies B. helped the author get out of trouble with white lies C. told the author to lie when in trouble D. taught the author the importance of being honest 2. The author __________. A. was thankful to her mother’s advice B. felt more awkward when being caught lying C. found that telling the truth hurt more than telling a lie

D. felt guilty when hurting people with her honesty 3. It can be inferred that the author’s mother __________. A. met her friends in the same restaurant regularly B. didn’t get along with the author’s teachers C. was not popular among her friends D. wanted to have something else for her birthday 4. Finally the author and her mother agreed that __________. A. kind-heartedness is more important than honesty B. appropriate methods are the key to telling a good lie C. honesty is defined as kindness as well as truthfulness D. absolute honesty is basic to good interpersonal relationships 【参考答案】1—4、CBDC
