As a student, I was most 38 to answer questions in class, and I found that the students around were just like me. At the beginning of each class, when the professor asked a question, I always 39 my head, for fear that the professor saw me. In a foreign language class, an expert from the Commercial Bank delivered a lecture. The speaker always wanted 40 to be in communication with him, so he asked how many students in the classroom learned Economics, but no one 41 . The expert said with a smile, “Let me tell you a(n) 42 first.” “When I came to the United States to study, there are often lectures delivered in the 43 . Each time, they invite an expert from Wall Street or a transnational company to make a speech.” “Before the beginning of every lecture, I found a(n) 44 phenomenon( 现象 ).

He told me with a smile, ?the speakers are all top-ranking people, who 49 chances. When your answer is to his 50 or surprise, it is very possible that he will give you more 51 . This is a very simple reason.? “The fact was also like that. I really saw a few students around me went to 52 in the first class company 53 their excellent insights (洞察力).

Now millions of people are saving on their heating bills with the EP Portable Heater. With over one million satisfied customers around the world, the new EP heats better and faster, saves more on heating bills, and runs almost silent. The EP has no exposed heating parts that can cause a fire. The outside of EP only gets warm to the touch so that it will not burn children or pets. The EP will not reduce oxygen in the room. With other heaters, you?ll notice that you get sleepy when the heat comes on because they are burning up oxygen. The advanced EP also heats the room evenly, wall to wall and floor to ceiling. It comfortably covers an area up to 350 square feet. Other heaters heat rooms unevenly with most of the heat concentrated to the center of the room. And they only heat an area a few feet around the heater. With the EP, the temperature will not vary in any part of the room. The EP comes with a 3-year warranty(保修) and a 60-day. No questions asked. Satisfaction guaranteed. If you are not totally satisfied, return it to our expertise and your money will be given back to you.

C To Friend or Not to Friend We all love our parents and turn to them when we?re in need, but would you like them to hear the conversations you have with your friends on the school playground or lunch queue? Social networking sites have become extensions of the school hallways, so would you add your parents as “friends” and allow them to view your online activities and conversations with friends? In the past the generation gap included a technology gap, where children were up to date with latest technology and parents were left behind, content to continue their day to day lives as they always had because they had no need to know more about technology. However, more and more parents are beginning to realize just how important social networks are in their lives. This realization has given many parents the motivation to educate themselves about social networking sites. These days many people are attracted to social networking sites because they can choose who they have around them; there?s also a certain amount of control over privacy that we don?t get in real life. Sometimes we feel that privacy is violated when we must accept a “friend” request from a parent or family member. It?s a difficult choice whether or not to allow a parent to become a part of our online lives. On the one hand we don?t want to “reject” their request because that might hurt their feelings or make them feel you have something to hide. On the other hand if you do accept, then you could have a sense of being watched and no longer feel free to comment or communicate the way you did before. A recent survey suggested that parents shouldn?t take it personally if their child ignores their request: “When a teen ignores a parent?s friend request, it doesn?t necessarily mean that they are hiding something, but it could mean that this is one part of their life where they want to be independent.” Perhaps talking with parents and giving explanations would help soften the blow if you do choose not to add them to your friends list. 64. From Paragraph 2, we learn that ________. A. parents feel secure about their privacy online B. social networks successfully fill the generation gap
C. parents have realized the importance of social networks D. social networks offer a platform for parents to communicate 65. Teenagers may refuse a parent?s friend request because ________. A. they hide something from their parents B. they are unwilling to be watched by parents C. their parents tend to fall behind in technology D. their parents make negative comments on them 66. The passage is mainly about ________. A. parents? friend requests B. social networks C. privacy online D. the generation gap 67. The passage is written mainly for ________. A. teachers B. parents C. teenagers
D Mobile phone users will be able to charge(充电) their devices wirelessly for the first time from 2015. Fujitsu, the Japanese technology company, has created a system capable of charging quite a few portable electronic devices in the meanwhile, such as mobile phones, digital cameras and laptop computers without the need for cable connections. Electric cars users may also eventually be able to charge their vehicles wirelessly using the same technology according to Fujitsu, which presented a system at an Institute of Electronics, Information and Communication Engineers Conference at Osaka Prefecture University. Claiming to be the world?s first of its kind, the technology works on the basis of the transmission of electricity using magnetic fields between the charger and the electronic device. The system enables wireless charging at distances of up to several metres, with the final aim of installing public “charging spots” on the streets in order to enable easy charging around the clock. Scientists at Fujitsu Laboratories are planning to commercially sell products including the new wireless charging system as early as 2012 but did not make it clear how much they would cost. “This technology makes it possible to add compact wireless charging functions into mobile phones and enabling several portable devices to be charged at the same time without any restrictions（限制）on their position in association with the charger,” the company said in a statement. The growing popularity of portable electronic devices ranging from iPads to e-readers is expected to fuel a boom in wireless recharging technology developments over the coming decade. Mobile phone users in Japan can currently fill up their batteries using disposable（一次性的） portable plug-in battery-operated devices -- available at most train stations and convenience stores -- although phone companies warn any use for too long can damage the phones. The new system displayed by Fujitsu, however, is significantly advanced and represents the next generation of portable recharging systems using highly tuned wireless technology. The company added, “We are also looking at applying the results of this work to fields other than portable electronics, including power transmission between circuit boards or computer chips, and providing mobile charging systems for electric cars.” 68. The writer?s purpose of writing the passage is . A. to analyze the current international situation B. to warn people against using disposable portable plug-in battery-operated devices C. to encourage customers to purchase the new charging devices D. to introduce a new technology applied to charging wirelessly
69. According to the new technology, electricity can be transmitted by . A. using magnetic fields B. using the electronic devices C. using batteries D. using disposable portable plug-in battery-operated devices 70. What is certain according to the passage is that . A. the charging system can serve one portable electronic device at a time B. all the convenience stores in Japan can provide the charging service now C. wireless charging works within a distance of up to several metres D. the new product doesn?t look promising 第 II 卷(共三部分， 共 35 分) 第四部分 任务型阅读（共 10 小题，每小题 1 分，共 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词（每空 1 词） 。 We are not born with courage, but neither are we born with fear. Maybe some of our fears are brought on by your own experiences, by what someone has told you, by what you?ve read in the papers. Some fears are reasonable, like walking alone in a bad part of town at two o?clock in the morning. But once you learn to avoid that situation, you won?t need to live in fear of it. Fears, even the most basic ones, can totally destroy our ambitions. Fear can destroy fortunes. Fear can destroy relationships. Fear, if left uncontrolled, can destroy our lives. Fear is one of the many enemies hidden inside us. Let me tell you about five of the other enemies we face from within. The first enemy that you?ve got to destroy before it destroys you is indifference. What a tragic disease this is! “Ho-hum, let it slide. I?ll just drift(漂流) along.” Here?s one problem with drifting: you can?t drift your way to the top of the mountain. The second enemy we face is indecision. Indecision is the thief of opportunity and enterprise. It will steal your chances for a better future. Take a sword to this enemy. The third enemy inside is doubt. Sure, there?s room for healthy skepticism （怀疑） . You can?t believe everything. But you also can?t let doubt take over. Many people doubt the past, doubt the future, doubt each other, doubt the government, doubt the possibilities and doubt the opportunities. Worst of all, they doubt themselves. I?m telling you, doubt will destroy your life and your chances of success. It will empty both your bank account and your heart. Doubt is an enemy. Go after it. Get rid of it. The fourth enemy within is worry. We?ve all got to worry some. Just don?t let it defeat you. Instead, let it alarm you. Worry can be useful. If you step off the sidewalk in New York City and a taxi is coming, you?ve got to worry. But you can?t let worry loose like a mad dog that drives you into a small corner. Here?s what you?ve got to do with your worries: drive them into a small corner. Whatever is out to get you, you?ve got to get it. Whatever is pushing on you, you?ve got to push back. The fifth enemy inside is overcaution. It is the timid (胆怯的) approach to life. Timidity is not a virtue; it?s an illness. If you let it go, it?ll defeat you. Timid people don?t get promoted. They don?t advance and grow. You?ve got to avoid overcaution. Do battle with the enemies. Do battle with your fears. Build your courage to fight what?s holding you back, what?s keeping you from your goals and dreams. Be courageous in your life and in your pursuit of the things you want and the person you want to become. Title: Facing the (71) ▲ within

Destroy it before it destroys you. Take a sword to it. Go after it and remove it. Let it alarm you (78) ▲ of allowing it to defeat you. ● Don?t let it go, or it will defeat you. ● Try to avoid it.

For example, the 7-9 age group spends as many as 6 hours per week on average, while the 16-18 age group spends only half the time. There are two major reasons for this. For one thing, both parents and children are too busy working or studying. For another, there aren?t many topics of common interest for them to talk about. In my opinion, children should let their parents know more about what they are interested in. At the same time, parents should spend more time talking with their children and sharing opinions with them. Only in this way can they better understand each other.
