On seeing this, everyone was filled with 40 , but Carla didn’t show anyone directly what was in the bag. 41 , she pulled out a small box and gave it to her teacher. When Miss Ellis had taken the box, Carla took an instant camera out of her own pocket and stood with it at the ready. “Please open it, Miss Ellis.” The teacher slowly opened the box and looked inside.

四. 阅读理解（共 20 小题，每小题 2 分，满分 40 分） (A) Dear God, Now that I am no longer young, I have friends whose mothers have passed away. I have heard these sons and daughters say they never fully appreciated their mothers until it was too late to tell them. I am blessed with the dear mother who is still alive. I appreciate her more each day. My mother does not change, but I do. As I grow older and wiser, I realize what an extraordinary person she is. How sad that I am unable to speak these words in her presence, but they flow easily from my pen. How does a daughter begin to thank her mother for life itself? For the love, patience and just plain hard work that go into raising a child? For running after a toddler, for understanding a moody teenager, for tolerating a college student who knows everything? For waiting for the day when a daughter realizes how wise her mother really is? How does a grown woman thank a mother for continuing to be a mother? For being ready with advice (when asked) or remaining silent when it is most appreciated? For not saying, “I told you so”, when she could have said these words dozens of times? For being essentially herself -- loving, thoughtful, patient, and forgiving? I don't know how, dear God, except to bless her as richly as she deserves and to help me live up to the example she has set. I pray that I will look as good in the eyes of my children as my mother looks in mine. A daughter 51. According to the passage, the writer’s friends ________ before their mothers died. A. could tell them their appreciation B. never completely said “thank you” to their mothers C. lived to their mother D. were very thankful 52. What does the writer think of her mother? A. Changing. B. Happy. C. Loving, thoughtful, and forgiving. D. Outstanding. 53. Which of the following is NOT true according to the passage? A. She has said “thank you” to her mother dozens of times. B. The writer ’s mother is still alive. C. The writer has been a mother. D. She wishes God to bless her mother. 54. The underlined expression “flow easily from my pen” means ________. A. express easily in words B. move out of her pen easily

C. write out without any difficulty in ink D. speak the words as soon as possible 55. Why does the daughter write the letter? A. She feels sorry to her mother. B. She wants to tell God how much she loves her mother. C. She expects God to retell her appreciation to her mother. D. She wants to pray for her mother. (B) For a clearer picture of what the student knows, most teachers use another kind of examination in addition to objective tests. They use "essay” tests, which require students to write long answers to broad, general questions such as the following: "Mention several ways in which Benjamin Franklin has influenced thinking of people in his own country and in other parts of the world.” One advantage of the essay test is that it reduces the element of luck. The student cannot get a high score just by making a lucky guess. Another advantage is that it shows the examiner more about the student’s ability to put facts together into a meaningful whole. It should show how deeply he has thought about the subject. Sometimes, though, essay tests have disadvantages, too. Some students are able to write rather good answers without really knowing much about the subject, while other students who actually know the material have trouble expressing their ideas in the essay form. Besides, in an essay test the student’s score may depend upon the examiner’s feelings at the time of reading the answer. If he is feeling tired or bored, the student may receive a lower score than he should. Another examiner reading the same answer might give it a much higher mark. Because of this, the objective test gives each student a fairer chance, and of course it is easier and quicker to score. Whether an objective test or an essay test is used, problems arise. When some objective questions are used along with some essay questions, however, a fairly clear picture of the student’s knowledge can usually be obtained. 56. What may have been discussed in the previous paragraphs? A. The essay test. B. How teachers test their students. C. How students write their essays. D. The objective test. 57. The essay test is preferred because ________. A. it shows more about the student’s understanding of the subject B. it tests the student’s knowledge of the material as well as his expression of ideas C. it gives each student a fairer chance D. its scoring may be influenced by the examiner’s feelings 58. The underlined word “this” ( Para 3 ) refers to the fact that ________. A. students may receive a lower score in an essay test B. another examiner usually gives the answer a higher mark C. different examiners may give the same essay different scores D. the objective test gives each student a fairer chance 59. According to the passage, which of the following statements about the objective test is NOT true?

A. It is more objective than the essay test in terms of scoring. B. It allows the student to guess the correct answer without really knowing the material. C. It shows the student’s ability to think about difficult problems. D. It is easy and quick to score. 60. According to the author, an ideal test should be ________. A. an objective test. B. an essay test. C. a combination of the two. D. something new. （C） When Johnny Cash sings, people listen. His big, deep voice rumbles out of radios and juke-boxes across North America. His records sell by the million. Country-music fans everywhere know his big hits. They love songs like “Hey Porter”, “Ring of Fire”, and “Folsom Prison Blue”. Johnny Cash sings about a hundred concerts a year. People like what they hear and what they see, too. Rugged and big-shouldered, the singer stands six-two without his black boots on. He's a two-hundred-pound package of muscle and talent. And that scar (疤痕) on his cheek? It's a bullet hole, of course! In the minds of most people, Johnny Cash is “Mr. Tough (violent) Guy”. He's an ex-drug addict (上瘾者) who was once put in prison. His grandmother was an Indian. To keep from hunger he once had to live on wild rabbits killed from forty feet away with a knife. Some people say he even killed a man. In fact, most of the Johnny Cash story is just that--a story. True, years ago he had a “drug habit” for a short time. He “popped” pills. But he never used heroin (海洛因) or other “hard” drugs. Sometimes he'd go wild and get locked up for a few hours. But he never served a prison sentence. There's no Indian blood in his veins. He's been a killer only in a song. As for the “bullet hole", it's an old scar left by a doctor who opened a cyst (囊肿). People who know Johnny Cash well say he's a “gentle guy”, a “generous guy”-- but not a “tough guy”. How did the stories get started? Some of them, like the story about the “Indian grandmother”, he made up long ago to add excitement to his career. Others, like the “bullet hole”, simply got started. Now there's little the singer can do to change people's minds. “They just want to believe it,” he says. 61. Johnny Cash is a favorite of many ________. A. opera lovers B. country music fans C. hard-rock fans D. jazz music lovers 62. In truth, Johnny Cash ________. A. invented the “Indian grandmother” B. used to kill rabbits for a living C. had a bullet hole on his cheek D. served a long prison sentence 63. In his private life, Johnny Cash is, ________. A. much wilder than he looks B. much smaller than he is on stage

C. much tougher than he is in public D. much more gentle than most people suppose 64. The passage shows us that many people believe ________. A. only what they see B. what they think is true C. only what they hear D. what they find interesting 65. We can infer from the text that ________. A. All stories about Johnny Cash were made up by people. B. Country-music fans everywhere, know his big hits. C. Both his songs and his appearance impress his fans. D. Johnny Cash suffered a lot in his childhood. (D) If your recurring (经常性的) dreams are worrying you, you can rest assured and needn’t worry. Psychologists say in the vast majority of these cases, this is just the mind’s way of dealing with stress and conflicts (冲突), problems and concerns. It’s a good thing. They can be surprisingly vivid and real, or fragmented (零散的) and weird. They can be comforting or frightening. Our dreams can tell us a lot about what we are really thinking, particularly when we are at life’s passages or turning points. Dreams give us an x-ray of our unconsciousness (潜意识). Lisa Oppenheim had the same dream whenever she was about to move to a new home or a new city. It’s always just a feeling of needing to stay safe. Experts say disturbing dreams often occur around major life events. For Lisa, it was moving. For others, it can be marriage or divorce, the death of a loved one or pressure at work. Doctor Siegel has studied the meaning of dream for nearly 30 years. He believes stressful or upsetting dreams can be a sign of what’s buried deep inside our minds. He said, “Dreams are important to survival. They are very important to the balance of our psyche (心灵). They help us work out problems that we’re having every single day. They go to the cutting edge of what’s stressful, what’s bothering us and what we’re working out in our lives. Dreams can guide us and in order to find that guidance, to find that deep source of wisdom that’s in our dreams every night, we need to pay attention to our dreams.” But many dreams are scary and horrible. How can we understand these nightmares? Doctor Siegel says they are reflecting especially intense emotion or unresolved conflict. The stronger the emotion in the dream, whether it’s pleasure or fear, the likelier the dream is to be important. Knowing what your recurring dreams or nightmares mean can be liberating. Some nightmares can be a sign of serious psychological problems, such as post-dramatic stress disorder. If they are extremely disturbing or violent or the cause of severe anxiety, you should see a professional therapist (治疗专家). 66. By saying “Dreams give us an x-ray of our unconsciousness”, the author means that dreams _______. A. do harm to our mind B. show us our real mind C. solve our stress in mind D. give us a turning point in mind 67. People will have recurring dreams when they _______. A. live with great pressure or have great events B. do the same things all their lives

C. move to a new home or a new city D. are comforted or frightened 68. Which of the following is true according to Doctor Siegel? A. Dreams play a very important role in the world’s balance. B. Dreams help us find out the problems we need to solve. C. We should pay attention to every dream we have. D. Only the dreams with pleasure are important to us. 69. How should we deal with the recurring nightmares? A. We should remember them because they are important to us. B. We can ignore them since they are just reflecting our emotions. C. We need to take some sleeping pills to stop this serious problem. D. We should see a psychological doctor if they are seriously disturbing. 70. The purpose of the passage is _______. A. to introduce a variety of dreams B. to offer some advice on avoiding nightmares C. to compare recurring dreams with nightmares D. to ease our anxiety on recurring dreams
