A Why do men die earlier than women? The latest research shows that the reason could be that men?s hearts go into rapid decline (衰弱)when they reach middle age. The largest study of the effects of ageing on the heart has found that women?s longevity may be linked to the fact that their hearts do not lose their pumping power with age. “We have found that the power of the male heart falls by 20-25 percent between 18 and 70 years of age,” said the head of the study, David Goldspink of Liverpool John Moores University in the UK. “Within the heart there are millions of cells that enable it to beat. Between the ages of 20 and 70, one-third of those cells die and are not replaced in men,” said Goldspink. “This is part of the ageing process.” What surprises scientists is that the female heart sees very little loss of these cells. A healthy 70-year-old woman?s heart could perform almost as well as a 20- year- old one?s. “This gender difference might just explain why women live longer than men,” said Goldspink. They studied more than 250 healthy men and women between the ages of 18 and 80, focusing on healthy persons to remove the confusing influence of disease. The team has yet to find why ageing takes a greater toll (造成损失)on the male heart, said Goldspink. The good news is that men can improve the health of their heart with regular exercise. Goldspink stressed that women also need regular exercise to prevent their leg muscles becoming smaller and weaker as they age. （ （ ）56.The underlined word “longevity”(in paragraph 2) probably refers to_______. A. health A. men?s heart cells C. the gender difference （ B. long life C. ageing D. effect ）57.The passage mainly talks about________. B. women?s ageing process D. hearts and long life
）58. According to the passage, the UK scientists have known that ________. A. women have more cells than men when they are born B. women can replace the cells that enable the heart to beat C. the female heart loses few of the cells with age D. the female heart never loses the pumping power with age
）59. We can know from the passage that _______. A. the reason why ageing causes a greater loss to the male heart has been found out B. scientists are still doing research into why the male heart loses more of the cells C. the team has done something to prevent the male from suffering the greater loss of the cells D. women over 70 could lose more cells than those at the age of 20. B More American people take their troubles with them on holiday, according to a new survey.

almost all said they worry more than they do at home. Only four in every 100 said that they are happy and free of care. The most common worry is burglary ( 入室盗窃) , with four out of 10 worrying about their homes being broken into while they?re abroad．More than a quarter fear they will feel crazy with some other noisy and rough holiday-makers and 22 percent worry they may be attacked or their possessions will be missing. One in five think the car may break down; and the same number worry about the chances of bad weather. The survey also showed that the stay-at-home Americans are no more （也没有） . Three out of every five want to have a holiday abroad, a great increase from the figures only three years ago. The hotel holiday is still a winner, with about one third of all Americans preferring to go on a self-catering ( 自 助 ) holiday. （ （ ）60.The underlined word “survey” in the first paragraph most probably means ______. A. research are at home. A. 25% （ B. 40% C. 80% D. 95% ）62.The third most common worry of American holiday-makers is that they may ______. A. be attacked or lose their possessions B. have problems with their cars on the road C. have bad weather on holiday D. get mixed with some rough fellow holiday-makers （ ）63.Where do American holiday-makers like to stay most? A. At a hotel. C. At a friend's house. B. In a quiet place. D. Where they can cook for themselves. C It doesn't matter when or how much a person sleeps, but everyone needs some rest to stay alive. That's what all doctors thought, until they heard about Al Herpin . Al Herpin, it was said, never slept. Could this be true? The doctors decided to see this strange man themselves. Al Herpin was 90 years old when the doctors came to his home in New Jersey. They thought for sure that he got some sleep of some kind. So they stayed with him and watched every movement he made. But they were surprised. Though they watched him hour after hour and day after day. They never saw Herpin sleeping. In fact, he did not even own a bed. He never needed one. The only rest that Herpin sometimes got was sitting in a comfortable chair and reading newspapers. The doctors were puzzled by this strange continuous sleeplessness. They found only one answer that might explain his condition. Herpin remembered some talk about his mother having been injured several days before he was born. But that was all. Was this the real reason? No one could be sure. Herpin died at the age of 94. B. review C. exhibition D. examination ）61.According to the text, about ____ of people worry more on holiday than when they

）64. The main idea of this passage is that _______. A. large numbers of people do not need sleep B. a person was found who actually didn't need any sleep C. everyone needs some sleep to stay alive D. people can live longer by trying not to sleep
）65. The doctors came to visit Herpin, expecting to _______. A. cure him of his sleeplessness B. find that his sleeplessness was not really true C. find a way to free people from the need of sleeping D. find out why some old people didn't need any asleep
）66. After watching him closely, the doctors came to believe that Al Herpin _______. A. was too old to need any sleep C. needed no sleep at all B. often slept in a chair D. needed some kind of sleep
）67. One reason that might explain Herpin's sleeplessness was _______. A. that he hadn't got a bed B. that he had gradually got tired of the sleeping habit C. his mother's injury before he was born D. his magnificent physical condition D Nathan?s second-hand bike was good enough to get him anywhere he wanted to go. Of course, it
couldn?t match Tim?s in a normal speed race, but all the fancy gears (工具）in the world wouldn?t get you up Black Mountain. The slope （斜坡）was so steep in places that you had to get off your bike and push. On this particular afternoon, the odds were all on Nathan?s side. For a start , he was stronger. Tim had always been thin, but recently he?d started to grow so fast that his arms and legs were like pieces of Spaghetti. As well as being considerably fitter than his friend, Nathan knew the shortcuts （捷径）up Black Mountain. So when Nathan accepted the challenge, he was sure he?d win. He nearly always did, in competitions with Tim. That was what was strange. Tim was so competitive, and yet he wasn?t any good at physical things. By the time the two boys were three quarters of the way to the top, Nathan was clearly ahead. While the road zigzagged(曲折前进） back and forth diagonally （斜地） up the mountainside, in certain places there were also vertical tracks(垂直的小径), where water rushing down the slope in winter had bitten erosion （磨损的） courses （道路） into the soil. These had in turn been so overgrown by bushes and long grass in the spring that they resembled tunnels through the bush. The trick was to know where you could cut off a whole bend （弯道） in the road by leaving the road and pushing your bike up one of these semi- concealed（半隐蔽的）pathways. If you chose the wrong one you?d struggle up for ten minutes and then suddenly reach a dead end. Then there was no alternative （可供选择的方法）but to go back.

）68. What did Tim challenge Nathan to do ? A. Test who had the faster bike. C. Find the secret tracks on the mountain. B. Decide who was more competitive. D. Race to the top of Black Mountain. B. the tracks were easier to ride bikes on . D. The road was overgrown after the winter.
）69. It was sometimes quicker to use the tracks rather than the road because________. A. the tracks were partly hidden. C. the road had many bends in it.
）70.Which of the following advantages did Nathan have over Tim? A. Nathan had a better bike and knew the shortcuts up the mountain. B. Nathan was fitter and knew the quickest ways up the mountain. C. Nathan was stronger and more competitive than Tim. D. Nathan was stronger and had a better bike.
）71.The underlined part “ the odds were all on Nathan?s side”( in Paragraph 2) means that “_______”. A. Tim would not try very hard in the race B. Tim had not yet grown as big as Nathan C. Nathan had a greater chance of winning the challenge D. Nathan had more friends who thought he would win
Let children learn to judge their own work. A child learning to talk does not learn by being corrected all the time: if corrected too much, he will stop talking. He notices a thousand times a day the difference between the language he uses and the language those around him use. Bit by bit, he makes the necessary changes to make his language like other people’s. In the same way, children learning to do all the other things: they learn to do without being taught to walk, run, climb, whistle, ride a bicycle, compare their own performances with those of more skilled people, and slowly make the needed changes. But in school we never give a child a chance to find out his mistakes and correct them for himself. We do it all for him. We act as if we thought that he would never notice a mistake unless it was pointed out to him, or correct it unless he was made to. Let him work out, with the help of other children if he wants it, what this word says, what the answer is to that problem, whether this is a good way of saying or doing this or not. If it is a matter of right answer, as it may be in mathematics or science, give him the answer book. Let him correct his own papers. Why should we teachers waste time on such routine(常规) work? Our job should be to help the child when he tells us that he can’t find the way to get the right answer. Let the children learn what all educated persons must some day learn, how to measure their own understanding, and how to know what they know or do not know. （ ）72.According to the passage, the best way for children to learn things is by ________. A. listening to skilled people’s advice C. making mistakes and having them corrected B. asking older people many questions D. doing what other people do

）73.Which of the following does the writer think teachers should NOT do? A. Give children correct answers. C. Point out children’s mistakes to them. B. Allow children to make mistakes. D. Let children mark their own work. B. point out children’s mistakes whenever found D. correct children’s mistakes as soon as possible B. the same as learning skills D. not really important skills
）74.According to the writer, teachers in school should ________. A .allow children to learn from each other C. give children more book knowledge
）75. The passage suggests that learning to speak and learning to ride a bicycle are ________. A .different from learning other skills C. more important than other skills

五：任务型阅读（共 10 小题，每小题１分，满分 10 分） 请认真阅读下列短文，并根据所读内容在文章后表格中的空格里填入最恰当的单词。注意： 每空格只填一个单词。 For centuries people dreamed of going into space．This dream began to seem possible when high-flying rockets were built in the early 1900s. In 1903 a Russian teacher named Konstantin Tsiolkovsky figured out how to use rockets for space travel．His plan was the first one in rocket science to use correct scientific calculation．About 30 years later, a U.S．scientist named Robert Goddard built the first rockets that could reach high altitudes．During World War II, German scientists built large rockets that could travel very far and carry dangerous explosives(炸药). After the war, scientists from Germany went to the United States and the Soviet Union to help those countries build space rockets. These two countries were soon racing to get to space first．Each of these countries wanted to prove that it was stronger and more advanced than the other one．Both countries also had powerful bombs．People in the United States were worried when the Soviets were first to launch a space satellite, which was called Sputnik. The Soviets were also first to send a person into space．Yury Gagarin orbited the earth in the Vostok I spaceship in 1961. The US government set a goal for its space program to be the first country to put a person on the Moon． The U.S． space program built a series of Apollo spaceship． These vehicles were powered by huge Saturn 5 rockets．In 1969 Apollo II took three men to the moon successfully．Nell Armstrong became the first person to walk on the Moon. The Soviets may have lost the race to fly people to the Moon, but they built the first space station in 1971．The United States also built a space station．The space stations allowed people to live and work in space．Then the Soviet Union and the United States cooperated to hook two spaceships together in space． This action ended the "space race"． Today a much larger space station, built by several countries together, orbits Earth. Another new way to go to space is by space shuttle．A space shuttle, first made in the United States in 1981, looks like an airplane．Astronauts who fly spaceships have used shuttles to help put satellites into space.

I?m a senior high student. Now many students use mobile phones. They think it?s a fashion. Besides, it?s very convenient to get in touch with their families and friends by using mobile phones. But some students break the rules in class. They bring their mobile phones to the classroom and we often hear the ring of mobile phones in class. Some of them even waste precious time in class typing short messages on the mobile phones . In my opinion, the classroom is a place for students to gain knowledge. Therefore quietness is badly needed for us to learn our lessons. Those who have mobile phones shouldn?t take them to the classroom. We are supposed to concentrate on our studies. If there are more public phones on the campus, the situation will be improved. Our school has made a rule to forbid the students to use mobile phones in the school. I hope every parent can support the policy. Yours sincerely, Li Lei
