The cars behind sounded loudly and 31 , trying to get ahead of traffic. Seeing this, my mum kindly told the man to 32 the change.

recognized with great fear: our daddy. But there was something strangely different about it. In it we heard something we had never heard before: fear, agony (痛苦) and despair. Then came his prayers in tearful voice. Our daddy was promising God that he would give his life to him if he would safely return his girls. Nothing in our lives had prepared us for this kind of shock. Neither of us remembers making a decision to come out. We were drawn to him like a magnet (磁铁), our fears disappearing into the forest. We didn’t know yet if we actually took steps or if God somehow moved us out and into Daddy’s arms. What we do remember were those strong, loving arms holding us and crying, hugging us like we were precious. Things were different after that. We had a new daddy. Our whole family was changed by a piece of chalk. 41. From the first two paragraphs, we can learn __________. A. the author was very naughty when young

第二部分 阅读理解(每小题 2 分,共 40 分) A In our home it was natural to fear our father. Even our mother was afraid of him. As children, my sister and I thought every family was like that. Every family had an unpredictable dad who was impossible to please and a praying mom who was there to protect the children. We were good children. Mom was always telling us we were, even if Daddy couldn’t see it, part of this was because we didn’t dare to do anything. Then came the day we found something new and fun to do. We worked at drawing with chalk on our wooden front door and making lots of pretty pictures all over it. We had a great time. We thought Mom would love it and praise us. The praise we expected did not come. Instead, Mom was mad. We did not understand why, but we knew we were in big trouble! Off we ran to find a place to hid. In our wooded yard it was not hard for two small children to find safety. Together, we hid behind a tree and did not move. Soon we heard the frightened voices of Mom and our neighbors calling out to us. The sun set and it began to get dark. Those around us became more anxious, and we became more frightened. However, we still didn't move. As we clung (紧紧拥抱) together in the dark, we became aware of yet another voice, one we

What’s the best title of the passage? A. The belief in God C. The big trouble of my mother B. A piece of chalk D. A painful memory of my childhood.

B “Can’t hold a candle to” is a popular expression. When there wasn’t electricity, someone would have a servant light his way by holding a candle. The expression means that the person who cannot hold a candle to you is not fit even to be your servant. Now, it means such a person cannot compare or compete. Another expression is “hold your tongue.” It means to be still and not talk. “Hold your tongue” is not something you would tell a friend. But a parent or teacher might use the expression to quiet a noisy child. “Hold out” is an expression one hears often in sports reports and labor news. It means to refuse to play or work. Professional football and baseball players “hold out” if their team refuses to pay them what they think they are worth. The expression “hold up” has several different meanings. One is a robbery. A man with a gun may say, “ This is a hold up. Give me your money.” Another meaning is to delay. A driver who was held up by heavy traffic might be late for work. Another meaning is for a story to be considered true after an investigation. A story can hold up if it is proved true. “Hold on” is another expression, which means wait or stop. As you leave for school, your brother may say, “Hold on, you forgot your book.” It is used to ask a telephone caller to wait and not hang up his telephone. Our final expression is “hold the line.” That means to keep a problem or situation from getting worse—to hold steady. For example, the president may say he will“hold the line on taxes.” He means there will be no increase in taxes. 46. The author introduces the expressions mainly by _____________. A. giving examples C. raising questions B. making comparisons D. quoting famous remarks

A. amusing

B. polite

C. unfriendly

D. aggressive

49. If some teachers “hold out”, they probably __________. A. change their attitude C. make a compromise B. refuse to work D. show their devotion

50. Which of the following sentences can convey positive meanings? A. I was late as I was held up by a hold up. B. Hold on! You have to pay the bill,sir. C. You can’t even hold a candle to Michael. D. I promise to hold the line on house prices. C Jeanette Rankin was born on a ranch(农场) in Montana, USA in 1882. In those days, Montana was still a frontier state, and life there was hard. Men and women shared the difficult outdoor work. But young Jeanette noticed men and women were not equal in many ways. For instance, at election time, women were not allowed to vote. Jeanette thought this was not fair, and several years later, after graduating from college, she realized how to help change the situation. First, she joined with other women and gave speeches through the state. Thanks to their years of efforts, Montana women were finally allowed to vote. This experience changed Jeanette’s life. She wanted to do work for the welfare of women and children everywhere. She was now well-known throughout Montana, so she decided to run for the US Congress. In 1916, she became the first woman in the Congress of the United States. Just six days after Rankin first attended Congress in 1917, American President Wilson called for a vote to go to war against Germany, as German submarines(潜水艇)attacked American ships during World War I. When Jeanette was called upon to vote, she said, “I want to stand by my country, but I cannot vote for war. I vote no.” Forty-nine other congress members also voted no, but she was the person who was criticized most. Newspapers said her decision came from weakness and she was anti-American. In the Second World War, Japanese warplanes attacked the American base at Pearl Harbor in 1941. The time came again for the US Congress members to vote for or against going to war. Everyone was waiting for Jeanette Rankin to vote, who rose and said, “As a woman, I can’t go to war, so I refuse to send anyone else”. Out of 471 members, she was the only member who voted against war. After that, she

A. some footballers refuse to play a game B. someone else is wanted on the phone C. someone is not qualified for a position D. someone was delayed by heavy traffic 48. The tune of the phrase “hold your tongue” is probably a little ___________.

received thousands of letters. Most people criticized her, but some praised her for her courage. Shortly before she died in 1973, she was asked if she regretted voting “no” to the two wars.” “Never,” she answered. “If you are against war, you’re against war regardless of what happens.” Today, in the US Congress Building, there is a statue of Jeanette Rankin. On the base of the statue are her words: “I cannot vote for war.” 71. When Jeanette Rankin was young, _______________________. A. women were not allowed to work with men B. women had no right to vote C. women could not go to college D. women could not deliver speeches in public 72.

swim as well as ever when he gets back in the water. He can get on a bicycle after many years and still ride away. He can play catch and hit a ball as well as his son. A mother who has not thought about the words for years can teach her daughter the poem that begins "Twinkle, twinkle, little star" or remember the story of Cinderella or Goldilocks and the Three Bears. One explanation is the law of overlearning(过度学习), which can be stated as follows: Once we have learned something, additional learning trials (尝试) increase the length of time we will remember it. In childhood we usually continue to practice such skills as swimming, bicycle riding, and playing baseball long after we have learned them. We continue to listen to and remind ourselves of words such as "Twinkle, twinkle, little star" and childhood tales such as Cinderella and Goldilocks. We not only learn but overlearn. The multiplication tables (乘法口诀表) are an exception to the general rule that we forget rather quickly the things that we learn in school, because they are another of the things we overlearn in childhood. The law of overlearning explains why cramming (突击学习) for an examination, though it may result in a passing grade, is not a satisfactory way to learn a college course. By cramming, a student may learn the subject well enough to pass the examination, but he is likely soon to forget almost everything he learned. A little overlearning, on the other hand, is really necessary for one's future development. 51. What is the main idea of Paragraph 1? A. People remember well what they learned in childhood. B. Children have a better memory than grown-ups. C. Poem reading is a good way to learn words. D. Stories for children are easy to remember. 52. What does the word "they" in Paragraph 4 refer to? A. Commonly accepted rules. B. The multiplication tables. C. Things easily forgotten. D. School subjects. 53. According to the author, being able to use multiplication tables is_______. A. a result of overlearning B. a special case of cramming C. a skill to deal with math problems D. a basic step towards advanced studies 54. The author explains the law of overlearning by_________. A. presenting research findings B. setting down general rules C. making a comparison D. using examples 55. What is the author's opinion on cramming? A. It leads to failure in college exams. B. It's helpful only in a limited way. C. It's possible to result in poor memory. D. It increases students' learning interest.

D Grown-ups are often surprised by how well they remember something they learned as children but have never practiced ever since. A man who has not had a chance to go swimming for years can still

them think clearly and feel more awake.This is because of caffeine,which helps to give a jump start to the nervous system.Now,a report says it may also boost long-term memory. Mike Yassa is a neurobiology professor.He and other researchers wanted to know if caffeine could improve a person’ s memory. He explains, “After you learn anything, it takes some time for that memory to strengthen. And over the first 24 hours is actually where most of the forgetting happens. So that is

59.Which of the following statements is NOT true? A.Most forgetting occurs within the first 24 hours. B.Forgetting can be positively affected by caffeine. C.The subjects were given different pills. D.Yassa was disappointed with the result. 60.What can we learn from the last paragraph? A.More caffeine means better memory. B.Smaller doses of caffeine doesn’t work. C.The time to take cafieine doesn’t matter. D.Caffeine is taken before the experiment.

where we wanted to intervene with caffeine and see if we can help reduce this forgetting. ” They took 160 caffeine-free people and showed them pictures of everyday objects. These people were asked if the objects could be found inside the house,or outdoors.Then some of the subjects were given a caffeine pill.The others were given a placebo—a pill containing nothing. 24 hours later,the subjects were shown the exact same images from the day before.They were also shown images with slight differences, and some completely new images. Both groups correctly identified the exact same and completely new pictures.But those who took the caffeine pill were better at spotting the pictures that were slightly different. Professor Yassa says their answers helped to show the effects of caffeine on memory. And we find that if they are on caffeine they are much more likely to make the right decision. ” The amount of caffeine the researchers used in the study was similar to one cup of strong coffee. The researchers did not see any improvement to memory from smaller doses of caffeine or when it was given an hour before viewing the images. 56.What is the focus of the text? A.Caffeine can make people addicted. B.Caffeine can make people energetic. C.Caffeine can improve long—term memory. D.Caffeine can make people feel comfortable. 57.What does the third paragraph mainly talk about? A.How the experiment was conducted. B.Who took part in the experiment. C.Which group of subjects did better. D.What was used in the experiment. 58.In which section of a magazine can we read this text? A.Culture. B. Technology. C.Health. D.Education.
