Too much TV?watching can harm children's ability to learn and even reduce their chances of getting a college degree, new studies suggest in the latest effort to examine the effects of television on children. One of the studies looked at nearly 400 northern California third?graders.Those with TVs in their bedrooms scored about eight points lower on math and language arts tests than children without bedroom TVs. A second study, looking at nearly 1, 000 grown?ups in New Zealand, found lower education levels among 26?year?olds who had watched lots of TV during childhood.But the results don't prove that TV is the cause and don't rule out that already poorly motivated youngsters (年轻人) may watch lots of TV. Their study measured the TV habits of 26?year?olds between ages 5 and 15.Those with college degrees had watched an average of less than two hours of TV per 1 weeknight during childhood, compared with an average of more than 2 hours for 2 those who had no education beyond high school. In the California study, children with TVs in their rooms but no computer at home scored the lowest, while those with no bedroom TV but who had home computers scored the highest. While this study does not prove that bedroom TV sets caused the lower scores, it adds to accumulating findings that children shouldn't have TVs in their bedrooms. 36. According to the California study, the low?scoring group might ________． A. have watched a lot of TV B. not be interested in math C. be unable to go to college D. have had computers in their bedrooms 37. What is the researchers' understanding of the New Zea?land study results? A. Poorly motivated 26?year?olds watch more TV. B. Habits of TV watching reduce learning interest. C. TV watching leads to lower education levels of the 15?year?olds. D. The connection between TV and education levels is difficult to explain. 38. What can we learn from the last two paragraphs? A．More time should be spent on computers. B. Children should be forbidden from watching TV. C. TV sets shouldn't be allowed in children's bedrooms. D. Further studies on high?achieving students should be done. 39. What would be the best title for this text? A. Computers or Television B. Effects of Television on Children C. Studies on TV and College Education D. Television and Children's Learning Habits
课时作业(九) Ⅰ.1.A 考查冠词。第一空加 the 表示特指“英语的词汇”；mixture 指“混合物，混合 体”，是可数名词，因此前面加 a。 2．B as 当??的时候，随着。句意：随着时间的流逝，我的家乡发生了巨大的变化。 3．D 考查非谓语动词。lose oneself in thought/sb be lost in thought 意为“某人 陷入深思”。故此处用过去分词形式作状语。 4．C 考查 not until 的强调结构。去掉 it was 和第二个空，句子依然完整，由此可以 判断这是一个强调结构，所以第二个空应该选择 that，由此可以判断 C 项正确。句意：直到 他那年从非洲回来，才遇到他想结婚的那个女孩。 5．A keep a record of 记录下；hold a record 保持一项纪录；make a record 录制唱 片。 6．B 考查固定搭配。be composed of 意为“由??组成”。be made up of 也有此意。 7．C 考查动词搭配。make a note of 意为“记下”；compare notes 意为“交换意见， 交流看法”。 8．B 考查连词及动词的时态。when 在句中意为“这时”，“把钥匙忘在厨房桌上”是 在“我意识到”之前发生的，所以要用过去完成时。 9．D it will be＋时间＋before?表示“还要很久才??”，故选 D。 10．A “There is no way ＋ 句子”表示“绝不会??”。由语境可以看出，由于交通 高峰期司机不可能开得很快。因此说话者认为自己赶不上飞机了。 11．A 考查非谓语动词作状语。本句中的非谓语动词作原因状语，表示已经遭受了如此 大的损失，故应使用现在分词的完成式(having done 结构)，表主动与完成。所以 A 项正确。 12．A 考查动词的时态。选项所表达的动作发生在 I was able to fully appreciate 之 前，故用过去完成时态。 13．C 第一个空可以是 impressive 或 impressing。第二个空用 be impressed with/by。 14．D 考查非谓语动词。因状语从句的主语和主句的主语一致，故改写成过去分词的形 式，原句可改写为：Peter is worried that he might lose his job。 15．A 考查交际用语。No way. 表示对对方要求的一种回绝。C 项语气较委婉，与后面 句子的语气不符。 Ⅱ.我们大家熟悉的电影 Titanic 的主题歌 My heart will go on 在世间再次奏响：一位 富有爱心的妈妈的心脏在另一位慈母的胸腔中继续跳动?? 16. B be in danger 在危险中，有??的危险。不做心脏移植手术的话，她的生命始终 处在危险中。 17. A 母亲和女儿都知道找到做心脏移植手术所需的配型心脏几率很小。 18. A 找到和 Maria 血型相匹配(match)的心脏需要花费许多年的时间。replace 代替； control 控制； cooperate 配合，合作。 19.

B 她抽泣着向那个陌生人叙述了自己的遭遇(story)。 24. D make it 成功，为固定搭配，在此意为“活过”。 25. C Frank 知道妻子 Cheryl 一直想捐赠(donate)自己的器官。save 节省，积攒； recycle 回收，循环； separate 分开。 26. A Cheryl 的心脏能不能移植到 Carmen 母亲的身上呢？由上文可知 Maria 需要的是 心脏移植。
27. A 仔细审核了数据后，医生们告诉/知(inform)Frank 他妻子的心脏奇迹般地适合 Maria。warn 警告； celebrate 庆祝；remind 提醒。 28. B a perfect fit 非常完美的匹配。copy 复制，副本； variation 变异，变种。 29.
