Not knowing what else to do, the two survivors decided that they should pray to God. However, to find out whose prayers were more powerful, they agreed to divide （分割开）the land between them and stay on opposite sides of the island. The first thing they prayed for was food. The next morning, the first man saw a tree on his side of the island, and he was able to eat its fruit. But the other man’s side of land remained barren. After a week, the first man became lonely and decided to pray for a wife. The next day, another ship was damaged and the only survivor was a woman who swam to his side of the island. But on the other side of the island, there was nothing. Soon the first man pray ed for a house, clothes and more food. The next day, like magic, all of these things were given to him. However, the second man still had nothing. Finally, the first man prayed for a ship so that he and his wife could leave the island, and in the morning he found a ship stopped at his side of the island. The first man boarded the ship with his wife and decided to leave the second man on the island. As the ship was about to leave, the first man heard a voice from Heaven, “Why are you leaving your partner on the island?” “My blessings are mine alone since I was the one who prayed for them.” The first man answered. “His prayers were all unanswered so he doesn’t deserve anything.” “You are mistaken!” the voice said. “He had only one prayer, which I answered. He prayed that all your prayers would be answered.” 21. Why didn’t the two men stay together on the island? A. Because they both wanted to live a quiet life B. Because they couldn’t get along well with each other C. Because they wanted to test the power of their prayers D. Because they wanted to keep their own life secret from others 22.

My younger brother Walt and I had decided to go
swimming in the stream behind Mr Blickez’s house, because it would be the only way to cool ourselves down. Across his farm and through some woods was a deep swimming hole supplied by several cold springs(泉). The only problem with our plan was that this farm was guarded by a huge mean Hereford bull(公牛). Mr Blickez had told us that Elsie, the animal’s name, was the meanest bull in town, maybe even the county, and we believed in him. But the hotter it got, the more we thought there was reason to doubt about what he said. Fo r one thing, we remembered Mr Blickez liked telling tall tales; for another, Elsie seemed like a strange name for a bull. Finally, I talked Mom into asking permission for us to walk through the farm, and Mr Blickez finally agreed. On our way across the farm, we stopped at the fence to admire the swimming hole. The sun shone brightly across the cool waters. We couldn’t wait to get there. Suddenly, Walt shouted loudly. Elsie had run to him and was licking(舔) his back. I immediately hid under the fence. However, when I looked up, I saw that Elsie wasn’t a big mean bull at all. She was jus t a friendly young cow, and she was going to keep licking my brother’s back as long as he stood still. When we discovered the truth, we were so happy. We then ran to the swimming hole and jumped in. The water was just as wonderful as we had dreamed. After that day, we had many good days and we often visited our secret swimming hole guarded by the so-called “big mean bull”. 25. The author and his brother decided to go to swim because __________. A. there was no water to take a shower at home B. the weather was so hot that they couldn’t stand it C. Mr Blickez invited them to his house for swimming D. they wanted to try their newly-found swimming hole 26. What was the problem faced by the author and his brother? A. They didn’t know where to swim. B. They had to face a very mean bull. C. Their mother didn’t want them to swim. D. They didn’t know how to get to the stream. 27. What can we know about Mr Blickez? A. He often tells lies. B. He is very shy. C. He is an honest man. D. He is very kind to children. 28. When Elsie saw the author’s brother, she __________. A. tried to attack him B. immediately ran away C. showed her friendliness D. tried to drive him away C Miss Gogers taught physics in a New York school. Last month she explained to one of her classes about sound, and she decided to test them to see how successful she had been in her explanation. She said to them, “Now I have a brother in Los
Angeles. If I was calling him on the phone and at the same time you were 75 feet away, listening to me from across the street, which of you would hear what I said earlier, my brother or you and for what reason?” Tom at once answered, “Your brother, because electricity travels faster than sound waves.” “That's very good,” Miss Gogers answered, but then one of the girls raised her hand, and Miss Gogers said. “Yes, Kate.” “I disagree,” Kate said. “Your brother would hear you earlier because when it's 11 o'clock here it's only 8 o'clock in Los Angeles.” 29.

The WHO released (发布) five simple rules for preparing food in a safe way. They call these rules the “Five Keys to Safer Food”. Key 1: Keep clean 36 . People should wash their hands often — before touching food and while they are preparing food. People should wash all surfaces and equipment used for preparing food. Key 2: Separate raw (生的) and cooked Raw foods should not touch prepared foods. 37 . Key 3: 38 People should cook eggs and meat especially carefully. These foods may carry more micro-organisms (微生物) than other foods. Food like soup must be boiled for at least a minute to make it be cooked completely. It is also important that people re-heat cooked food completely. Key 4: Keep food at safe temperatures
When people are finished with eating, they should keep the left food in a refrigerator below 5oC and shouldn't store it for too long. At room temperature, about 20oC, the amount of micro-organisms can increase very quickly. But temperatures above 60oC or below 5oC control the growth of micro-organisms. 39 . Key 5: Use safe water and raw materials 40 . Damaged or old food may develop harmful chemicals as it gets older. A. Eat healthily B. Cook completely C. They can live where we make food D. This key tells about the importance of washing E. People should use safe water and choose fresh foods F. They cannot grow as quickly in a very hot or very cold environment G. People should use separate equipment and tools for touching and preparing raw foods 第三部分 语言知识运用（共两节，满分 45 分） 第一节 完形填空(共 20 小题；每小题 1.5 分，满分 30 分) My dad works for a food organization that travels to country areas to offer food, medical help and entertainment.
