2014 年春来高中高二下学期英语试题
第一部分 阅读理解(共 20 题,每题 2 分, 满分 40 分) 第一节: 阅读下列短文,从每题所给的四个选项(A、B、C、D)中,选出最 佳选项(共 15 题,共 30 分)

Getting out of bed into the darkness, the man searches around his room with strange intentions. Soon, he finds what he is looking for. Grasping a pencil, he begins drawing on a used newspaper. He bends over his work for an hour as a beautiful image appears. But the artist seems to be hardly conscious. Lee Hadwin, by day a nurse, at night is a sleepwalking artist who produces strange and fantastic works of art, which he has no memory of drawing when he wakes the next morning. Hadwin says he is completely confused about his nighttime talent, especially as in the daytime, he shows no interest or ability in art at all. Hadwin, 33, from North Wales, is now being investigated by the Edinburgh Sleep Centre. “It is horrible,” he says. “I feel exhausted when I wake up. It is only in the following days that I'm able to look at what I've produced and appreciate it. At first, I just feel terrible. Now I am receiving therapy (治疗) in an attempt to discover what causes my subconscious self to draw. I want to get to the root of it.” An incredible video of Hadwin at work in a sleepwalker's state has already become a hit after it was shown on the Internet. The video shows Hadwin drawing at great speed, but not answering his name being called out by witnesses. Major galleries have also been asking for examples of his work. Hoping to develop the strange ability, Hadwin started leaving artist's materials out when he went to bed. Although he leaves colored paints and pencils out, he has never drawn in color. Hadwin said, “Each morning I wake up and see a newly?created piece of art lying beside my bed, I breathe a sigh of relief that my gift still belongs to me.” 1.What is unusual about Lee Hadwin? A.He likes drawing on waste paper. B.He has the inspiration to draw at night. C.He walks around unconsciously every night. D.He draws every night in an unconscious state. 2.The underlined word “it” in Paragraph 3 refers to the ________. A.darkness B.pencil C.work of art D.talent 3.According to the text, Hadwin ________. A.has great interest in drawing in the daytime B.feels lucky to have the extraordinary gift C.hopes to lose his strange ability D.didn't want to receive treatment

4.While drawing, Hadwin ________. A.works at a very low speed B.never draws colored pictures C.expects nobody to disturb him D.can hear the sound around him B Forget what you've read in the comics (连环漫画). Superman was not shot into space as a baby moments before his home planet exploded. Instead, he was born in Cleveland, Ohio — specifically, in the halls of Glenville High School. And his parents were not Mr. and Mrs. JorL (original spelling), but Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster. The real Superman was a character with superhuman powers that was very popular in comics. According to a 1941 article in the Post, the Man of Steel had risen from a longshot character created by two unknowns to the most popular hero of his time. No other cartoon character ever has been such an allaround success at the age of three. No other cartoon character ever has carried his creators to such an accomplishment as Siegel and Shuster enjoyed at the age of twentysix. Superman's noble profile (简介) appeared in two magazines and 230 newspapers selling nearly 25,000,000 copies. When R. H. Macy & Co. staged a Superman exhibit in its New York store, it took in $30,000 in thirtycent admissions. One day in 1930, a classmate pointed Siegel toward another student with a similar interest in science fiction. Siegel sought him out. By the noon break, the boys had formed a partnership which has remained to this day. For the next six years, Siegel and Shuster turned out several ideas, none of which took them far. It was on a hot night in 1932 that Siegel got his best idea: a character who had the strength of every fictional hero he knew. But it was repulsed by every comicmagazine before a printer took a chance on these unknowns. Then Superman's sales were up, up, and well, you know the rest. For years afterward, the two struggled for a fair part of the Superman fortune. Even if they were disappointed in their business arrangement, they never lost faith in the character they created. 5.What is the text mainly about? A.Two boys' friendship. B.The fun of reading comics. C.Superman's great popularity. D.The surprising origin of Superman 6.From the text, we can know that ________. A.Superman was created by Siegel and Shuster B.Siegel and Shuster's partnership lasted for 6 years C.Superman was created by two college school students D.Superman became a success immediately after he was created 7.What is the third paragraph mainly about?

A.Superman's superpower. B.Two boys' achievements. C.The creators of Superman. D.The success of Superman. 8.It can be inferred from the text that Siegel and A.got the payment they deserved B.were not satisfied with Superman C.are both interested in science fiction D.only designed the character Superman

Shuster ________.

C Zhu Yuxiang, 33, is addicted to, collecting toys that were mainly produced in China during the 1980s. He started collecting in 2003. He says that the 1980s was unique in his opinion, as the society and economy experienced such rapid development. While much of his toy collection was bought at secondhand markets and online stores, many others were given by friends as gifts. The most valuable item in his collection is worth more than 100,000 yuan, though he refuses to say what it is, only adding that it is rare, historic and he won't sell it at any price. During the 1980s, just a few factories in China produced toys, so Zhu can easily recognize them. Zhu says he didn't have much opportunity to play with toys as a child because his family could not afford them. Windowshopping for toys, he says, was a bitter but interesting experience and he believes this is one of the reasons he started his collection. He says when he looks through his collection, his memory opens and he feels very happy. The father of a 10monthold son, Zhu works as a librarian in Shanghai's Jing'an District. The salary is not as high as his last job, a salesman at an ITrelated company, but he's not unhappy about this as money is not everything. Toys, however, are a source of endless happiness to him. Zhu showcased (展示) his collection at an exhibition in Shanghai a few years ago, but his dream is to open a small museum to display to the public. He says it's his way of preserving history. 9.Zhu collects toys produced during the 1980s because ________. A.the toys made in the 1980s are better in quality B.he thinks that the 1980s was unique with rapid development in the society and economy C.the toys are worth much more money than other periods D.he made toys himself in the 1980s 10.The ways Zhu collects toys don't include ________. A.getting them from the secondhand markets B.buying them from online shops C.receiving them from friends D.producing them by himself 11.According to the text, Zhu Yuxiang is ________ now. A.a salesman B.a librarian

C.a teacher D.a computer programmer 12.According to the last paragraph, what is Zhu Yuxiang's dream about his toy collection? A.To enlarge his range of collection. B.To hold an exhibition in Shanghai. C.To open an online toy shop. D.To open his own museum. D Do you want to improve the way you study? Do you feel nervous before a test? Many students say that a lack of concentration (注意力) is their biggest problem. It seriously affects their ability to study, so do their test results. If so, use these tips to help you. Study Techniques ? You should always study in the same place. You shouldn’t sit in a position that you use for another purpose. For example, when you sit on a sofa to study, your brain will think it is time to relax. Don’t watch TV while you are studying. Experts warn that your concentration may be reduced by 50 percent if you attempt to study in this way. Always try to have a white wall in front of you, so there is nothing to distract (make less concentrated) you. Before sitting down to study, gather together all the equipment you need. Apart from your textbooks, pens, pencils and knives, make sure you have a dictionary. If your study desk or table is needed when you are not studying, store all your equipment in a box beside it. ? Your eyes will become tired if you try to read a text which is on a flat surface. Position your book at an angle of 30 degrees. ? Be realistic and don’t try to complete too much in one study period. Finish one thing before beginning another. If you need a break, get up and walk around for a few minutes, but try not to telephone a friend or have something to eat. Test-taking Skills ? All your hard work will be for nothing if you are too nervous to take your test. Getting plenty of rest is very important. This means do not study all night before your test! It is a better idea to have a long-term study plan. Try to make a timetable for your study which lasts for a few months. ? Exercise is a great way to reduce pressure. Doing some form of exercise every day will also improve your concentration. Eat healthy food too. ? When you arrive in the examination room, find your seat and sit down. Breathe slowly and deeply. Check the time on the clock during the test, but not too often. Above all, take no notice of everyone else and give the test paper your undivided attention. 13. Which of the following statements is true according to the passage? A. You should study in a different place every day, so you don’t get bored. B. Your concentration will improve if you study and watch TV at the same time. C. Check the time during the exam at a certain time.

D. Staying up all night and studying is tiring, but you will learn a lot using this method. 14. What does the underlined word “it” refer to? A. Your study desk or table. B. Your textbook. C. Your dictionary. D. The equipment you need. 15. What can be inferred from the passage? A. You shouldn’t look at everyone else during the test. B. You will have enough energy to deal with your study and exams by eating healthy diet. C. You’ll concentrate more if there is nothing to distract you. D. If you feel tired during study, you can walk around for a few minutes. 第二节(共 5 小题,每小题 2 分,共 10 分) 根据短文内容填空,从短文后的七个选项中选出能填入空白处的最佳选 项。选项中有两项是多余选项。 How to Make Friends Friendship is a very important human relationship and everyone needs good friends.
