There I was, walking home at one in the morning after a tiring practice at the theatre. With opening night only a week ago, I was still learning my lines. I was having trouble dealing with my part-time job at the bank and my acting at night at the same time. As I walked, I thought seriously about giving up both acting and San Francisco. City life had become too much for me. As I walked down empty streets under tall buildings, I felt very small and cold. I began running, both to keep warm and to keep away from any possible robbers (抢劫犯). Very few people were still out except a few sad-looking homeless people under blankets. About a block from my apartment (公寓房间), I heard a sound behind me. I turned quickly, half expecting to see someone with a knife or a gun. The street was empty. All I saw was a shining streetlight. Still, the noise had made me nervous, so I started to run faster. Not until I reached my apartment building and unlocked the door did I realize what the noise had been. It had been my wallet falling to the sidewalk. Suddenly I wasn’t cold or tired anymore. I ran out of the door and back to where I’d heard the noise. Although I searched the sidewalk anxiously for fifteen minutes, my wallet was nowhere to be found. Just as I was about to give up the search, I heard the garbage truck (垃圾车) pull up to the sidewalk next to me. When a voice called from the inside, “ Alisa Camacho?” I thought I was dreaming. How could this man know my name? the door opened, and out jumped a small red-haired man with an amused look in his eye. “Is this what you’re looking for?” he asked, holding up a small square shape. It was nearly 3 A.M. by the time I got into bed. I wouldn’t get much sleep that night, but I had gotten my wallet back. I also had gotten back some enjoyment of city life. I realized that the city couldn’t be a bad place as long as people were welling to help each other.
36. How did the write feel when she was walking home after work? A. Cold and sick C. Satisfied and cheerful B. Fortunate and helpful D. Disappointed and helpless
37. From the first paragraph, we learn that the write was busy ______. A. solving her problem at the bank C. learning acting in a n evening school 38. On her way home the writer _______. A. lost her wallet unknowingly B. was stopped by a garbage truck driver B. taking part in various city activities D. preparing for the first night show
C. was robbed of her wallet by an armed man D. found some homeless people following her 39. In the fifth paragraph, why did the writer say she was dreaming? A. Someone offered to take her back home. B. A red-haired man came to see her. C. She heard someone call her name D. Her wallet was found in a garbage truck.
40. From the text, we can infer that the writer _________. A. would stop working at night B. would stay on in San Francisco C. would make friends with cleaners D. would give up her job at the bank. B “Soon, you’re going to have to move out!” cried my neighbor upon seeing the largest tomato plant known to mankind, or at least known in my neighborhood. One tiny 9-inch plant, bought for $1.25 in the spring, has already taken over much of my rose bed, covering much of other plants, and is well on its way to the front door. Roses require a good deal of care, and if it weren’t for the pleasure they give, it wouldn’t be worth the work. As it is, I have a garden full of sweet-smelling roses for most of the year. bushes must be pruned(剪枝) in early spring, leaving ugly woody branches until the new growth appears a few weeks later. It was the space available(可用的) in the garden that led me into planting just one little tomato plant. A big mistake. Soil conditions made just perfect for roses turn out be even more perfect for tomatoes. The daily watering coupled with full sun and regular fertilizing (施肥) have turned the little plant into a tall bush. The cage I placed around it as the plant grew has long since disappeared under the thick leaves. Now the task I face in harvesting the fruit is twofold; First, I have to find the red ones among the leaves, which means
I almost have to stand on my head, and once found I have to reach down and under, pick the tomatoes and withdraw(缩回) my full fist without dropping the prize so dearly won. I found two full-blown white roses completely hidden as I picked tomatoes in June. But they were weak and the leaves already yellow for lack of light. Here I am faced with a painful small decision: To tear up a wonderful and productive tomato plant that offers up between ten and twenty ripe sweet tomatoes each day or say goodbye to several expensive and treasured roses. Like Scarlett in Gone With the Wind, I’ll think about that tomorrow. 41．What ate the requirements for the healthy growth of rose? A．A lot of care and the right soil. C．Tomato plants grown alongside. B．Frequent pruning and fertilizing. D．Cages placed around the roots.
42．The writer planted the tomato because _________. A．it cost only $1.25 C．there was room for it in the garden B．the soil was just right for it D．the roses’ branches needed to be covered
43．This year the writer’s roses were __________. A．removed from the rose bed C．mostly damaged by too much sunlight B．picked along with the tomatoes D．largely hidden under the tomato plant
44．By saying “the prize so dearly won” in paragraph 5, the writer wants to ________. A．show the difficulty in picking the tomatoes C．express her liking for the roses B．show the hardship of growing the roses D．express her care for the tomatoes
45．In the situation described in the text, one good thing is that ________. A．the roses cost the writer little money B．the writer has a daily harvest of tomatoes
C．someone will help the writer make the decision D．the writer can now enjoy both the roses and tomatoes C In America, when people say “man’s best friend”, they don’t mean another person. Instead, they are talking about a lovely animal：A dog! These words show the friendship between people and animals. Dogs and other pets can give happiness to people’s lives. Some people think of their pets as their children. A few even leave all their money to their pets when they die! Animals can help people, too. Dogs can be taught to become the “eyes”for a blind person or
“ears”for a deaf people. Scientists have found that pets help people live longer! They make people happier, too. Because of that, animals are brought into hospitals for “visit”. Americans hold “Be---Kind-to-Animals Week”in the first week of May. Pets shows are held during the week. Even if you don’t live in America, you, too, can do this. How? First, think about how animals make your life richer. If you have a pet, take more time this week to play with it. Remember to give it delicious food. Also, be sure to keep your pet from those unwanted babies. If you don’t have a pet, be kind to animals around you. For example, if you see a street dog, don’t kick(踢)it or throw things at it. Instead, just leave it alone, or beter yet, make friends with it. If others around you do bad things to an animal, try to shop them. As people, we must protect animals who can’t speak for themselves. 46. “A few even leave all their money to their pets when they die!”means that__________ A. pets have the right (权力) to inherit (继承) money. B. money can give pets happiness. C. it’s the best way to spend money. D. some pets are taken as children. 47. Why are dogs brought to hospitals? A. Because they are ill and need to see doctors. B. Because they can make the patients happier. C. Because they can find out the problems of the patients. D. Because doctors can do experiments (实验) on them. 48.

Making friends with other people’s pets. 49. What’s the passage mainly about? A. A lot of people are interested in dogs. B. Dogs can help people do many things. C. Pets are lovely and need care and protection.
D. We have done a lot of things for pets. 50. The words“ man’s best friends”shows____________. A. the friendship between people. B. the friendship between people and animals. C. the friendship between animals. D. the friendship between men and women D Since we are social beings, the quality of our lives depends greatly on our interpersonal ties(人际关系). One strength of the human condition is our possibility to give and receive support from one another under stressful ( 有压力的 ) conditions .Social support makes up of the exchange of resources among people based on their interpersonal ties. Those of us with strong support systems appear better able to deal with major life changes and daily problems. People with strong social ties live longer and have better health than those without such ties. Studies over types of illnesses, from depression to heart disease, show that the presence of social support helps people defend themselves against illness, and the absence of such support makes poor health more likely. Social support cushions stress in a number of ways. First, friends, relatives and co-workers may let us know that they value us. Our self-respect is strengthened when we feel accepted by others in spite of our faults and difficulties. Second, other people often provide us with informational support .They help us to define and understand our problems and find solutions to them. Third, we typically find social companionship supportive. Taking part in free-time activities with others helps us to meet our social needs while at the same time distracting ( 转移注意力 ) us from our worries and troubles . Finally, other people may give us instrumental support – money aid, material resources, and needed services – that reduces stress by helping us resolve and deal with our problems. 51. Interpersonal ties are important because they can ____________. A. make people live more easily C. deal with life changes A. B. C. D. A. B. solve daily problems D. cure types of illnesses
52. The researches show that people’s physical and mental health ________. lies in the social medical care systems which support them has much to do with the amount of support they get from others depends on their ability to deal with daily worries and troubles is related to their courage for dealing with major life changes takes place of B. makes up of D. gets rid of
53. Which of the following is closest in meaning to the underlined word “cushions”? C. lessens the effect of
54. Helping a sick neighbor with some repair work in spare time is an example of _. A. C. A. C. instrumental support social companionship Interpersonal ties. Ways to deal with stress. B. informational support D. the strengthening of self-respect B. Kinds of social support. D. Effects of stressful condition.

第五部分阅读表达考(共 5 题,每题 5 分,共 15 分)
In the modern society there is a great deal of argument about competition. Some value it highly ,believing that it is responsible for social progress and prosperity(繁荣). Others say that competition is bad ,that it sets one person against another, that it leads to unfriendly relationship between people. I have taught many children who held the belief that their self-worth relied on how well they performed at tennis and other skills. For them, playing well and winning are often life-and-death affairs. In their single-minded pursuit of success, the development of many other human qualities is sadly forgotten. However, while some seem to be lost in the desire to succeed, others take an opposite attitude. In a culture which values only the winner and pays no attention to the ordinary players, they strongly blame competition. Among those who complain most are youngsters who have suffered under competitive pressures from their parents or society. Teaching these young people, I often
observe in them a desire to fail. They seem to seek failure by not trying to win or achieve success. By not trying, they always have an excuse: "I may have lost, but it doesn't matter because I really didn't try. "What is not usually admitted by them is the belief that if they had really tried and lost, ________________ . Such a loss would be the measure of their worth. Clearly, this belief is the same as that of true competitors who try to prove themselves. Both are based on the mistaken belief that one's self-respect relies on how well one performs in comparison with others. Both are afraid of not being valued. Only as this basic and often troublesome fear begins to dissolve(缓解) can we discover a new meaning in competition. 1. What does this passage mainly talk about? (Please answer within 15 words. ) _________________________________________________________________________ 2. Why does the author say both of the beliefs held by the young people are wrong ?(no more than 15 words) _________________________________________________________________________ _ 3. Please fill in the blank in the 3rd paragraph with proper words or phrases to complete the sentence. (Please answer within 10 words.)
_________________________________________________________________ _ 4. What's your attitude toward competition? (Please answer within 30 words. ) _________________________________________________________________ __ 5. What does the underlined word “those” (Line 6, Para 3) refer to? (no more than 5 word) _________________________________________________________________ __ 第六部分写作 (共 30 分)
