第三部分：阅读理解(共 20 小题；每小题 2 分，满分 40 分)
阅读下列短文，从每篇短文后所给各题的四个选项(A、B、C 和 D)中，选出最佳选项， 并在答题卡上将该项涂黑。 A Children are our future, and it’s up to us to arm them with the tools to succeed. Sadly, today’s children are being armed with more dangerous tools like weapons, drugs and gangs. Once a relatively peaceful environment, many schoolyards of today are becoming unsafe for both students and teachers. Home schools are available to give you choices. Home schooling provides top-quality education, flexibility, and freedom to create your own schedule. At Heritage Home School we believe the choice should be yours. Thanks in part to modern technology, home schooling information is becoming readily available across our nation. A recent study by the ITBS（Iowa Tests of Basic Skills）and TAP （Tests of Achievement and Proficiency）shows us that students of home schools do particularly well when compared with the nationwide average. In every subject at every grade level, students of home schooling scored obviously higher than those in public and private schools. If you’re new to home schooling, you may be asking yourself, “Will home schools really work for my children?” Fact: A nationwide study using a random selection of 1,516 families found students of home schooling to be scoring, on average, at or above the 80th percentile in all areas on standardized achievement test. Note: The national average on standardized achievement tests is the 50th percentile. Collectively, the staff at Heritage Home School brings 65 years of experience in home schooling curriculum. We’ve placed students in the top 2 % of the nation in math and many are successfully moving on to college. One study found that of the home schooled adults, 0% were unemployed, 0% were on welfare and 94% said home education prepared them to be independent persons. For more home schooling information, call us today toll free at 1-（877）-532-7665. 51．We can learn from the first paragraph that ________. A. many schools armed their students with weapons
B. violence and crime exist in many schoolyards C. students use weapons to defend their schoolyards D. weapons are more dangerous than drugs 52．Which of the following is NOT true about home schools? ________. A. students are free to choose their courses B. students do well in important national tests C. they help students find jobs D. they help students to be independent 53．What is the purpose of the text? A. To give information about different schools. B. To compare home schools with other schools. C. To suggest a new method of school education. D. To persuade people to choose home schools. 54．The advertisement is mainly aimed at ________. A. students B. parents C. teachers D. adults BCDB B Seven Health Facts about Coffee When you’re considering your morning coffee, here are some health facts to keep in mind: 1, Coffee Reduces Your Risk of Diabetes（糖尿病） （糖尿病） In a 2005 review of nine studies, researchers found that for those that drank four to six cups of coffee per day, versus only. Two or fewer, their risk for Type 2 diabetes decreased by almost 30 percent. The number decreased by 35 percent when people drank more than six cups per da3day.And if you’re picturing yourself f running around the office with your eyes bugging out of your head, no worries because caffeinated and decaffeinated coffees provided much the same results. 2. Coffee Fights Free Radicals（自由基） （自由基） We often forget that coffee is actually a plant and like all plant foods, the coffee bean contains more than 1,000 naturally occurring substances called phytochemicals, which may help prevent disease. Many of these phytochemicals are antioxidants which protect the cells from damage from free radicals. 3. Coffee Improves Memory and Cognition Researchers reported that volunteers who drank caffeinated coffee in the morning performed better than nondrinkers on tests that involved learning new information. Coffee can also improve cognitive function as we age. One study found that combining coffee with a sweet treat had an even bigger impact. 4. Coffee Can Increase Osteoporosis（骨质疏松） （骨质疏松） It s true that coffee can cause the body to excrete calcium in urine. We don’t want the body to rid itself of calcium because this can lead to osteoporosis. According to The Diet Channel,about five milligrams of calcium is lost per every six ounces of coffee consumed. But these calcium losses can be counter balanced with two tablespoons of milk or yogurt per cup of coffee. 5. Coffee Causes Wrinkles Even though coffee has antioxidants, if you drink too much of it, it can cause wrinkling of the skin. This is a result of dehydration(脱水) which is the worst thing for your skin. So when you’re
drinking that morning cup or two, make sure that you’re pairing it with water. Even better, add one tablespoon of chia seeds to your water and let them sit for 30 minutes. The chia seeds keep you even more hydrated than regular water. 6, Coffee Can Actually Cause Weight Gain The blood sugar changes that a caffeine high produces can contribute enormously to a strong desire for it, according to Village. Coffee is also socially connected to food. For example, we pair coffee with dessert or that morning powdered doughnut. Additionally, when we crash from our caffeine high that’s when we reach for all sorts of fatty snacks’ to keep us going. 7. Conventional Coffee Is Laden with Pesticides（杀虫剂） （杀虫剂） The coffee plant is one of the most heavily sprayed crops. It’s coated with chemicals, pesticides, and herbicides, nothing you’d want to be swallowing. If you do drink coffee, make sure that it’s the organic variety, free from assorted chemicals that leech into our ground water and can make us sick down the road. If you switch to decaffeinated coffee, make sure the caffeine is removed in a natural way without the use of chemicals to do it. Often times, conventional decaffeinated coffee has more chemicals than regular. 55. If you want to decrease the risk of diabetes by 35070, you need to take at least cups of coffee every day. A. seven B. six C. five D. four 56. lf you are a heavy drinker of coffee, a far better way to avoid wrinkling of your skin is to drink water . A. less than usual B. regularly C. with sugar D. with chia seeds 57. Which of the following statements is wrong? A. Adding two spoons of milk to a cup of coffee can prevent calcium losses. B. Decaffeinated coffee has different effects from caffeinated coffee as to diabetes. C. Many phytochemicals protect the cells from damage from fiee radicals. D. The organic variety of coffee p/ant is free from assorted chemicals. 58. The author has a/an attitude towards drinking of coffee. A. positive B, negative C. objective D. imaginative 【答案】ADBC C RMB’s appreciation to remain gradual BEIJING - French Foreign Minister Alain Juppe will visit Beijing on Wednesday for talks ahead of the G20 summit in France in November. The summit will discuss the global economic crisis and high levels of sovereign debt owed to China. The Chinese government has been under pressure from Washington and other trading partners to ease currency policies and other measures that they complain keep the yuan undervalued and swell China's trade surplus (贸易顺差). But Wei Jianguo, secretary-general of the China Center for International Economic Exchange, said too rapid appreciation of the renminbi will chill the country's exports next year, especially when the global economy is expected to slow down. "Next year will be a critical period for China's trade, as the ongoing debt crises in the European Union and United States reduce their demand while yuan appreciation and
ever-increasing trade protectionism hit China's exports," said Wei, who was a former vice-commerce minister. While China's exports to emerging economies grow rapidly, they account for just one-third of those lost to developed economies, Wei said, China's trade surplus will decrease to less than $100 billion for 2011 from last year's $183 billion. Customs data showed China's imports growth surged to 30.2 percent in August, up from July's 22.9 percent , showing that Chinese demand remained robust despite government efforts to steer economic growth to a more sustainable level. Zhou Xiaoehuan, China's central bank governor, said in February that the yuan's appreciation will not compromise to foreign pressure, and China will write its own ticket on the pace of its currency appreciation. On Aug 11, the yuan strengthened beyond 6.4 versus the dollar for the first time in I7 years, and visited its all-time trading peak in August 30 to 6.38. Robert Zoellick, president of the World Bank, said last week that inflation was "the most important" issue for China, and he suggested the yuan appreciation would help ease inflation (通 货膨胀), because "an appreciated currency lowers prices at home of the foreign goods". But Lian Ping, chief economist at the Bank of Communications, said that to curb inflation should not be entirely dependent on the yuan's appreciation. "To lower the domestic inflationary pressure via the yuan's appreciation will have to require sharp increase in a short term," Lian said. "It will be undoubtedly at the cost of a sharp decline of the export and loads of jobs lost the loss outweighs the gain." 59. Wei Jianguo's attitude towards too rapid appreciation of the RMB is ________. A. negative B. neutral C. positive D. questioning 60. According to Wei J ianguo's speech, what is the current situation of China's imports and exports? A. Imports are over exports. B. Imports are equal to exports. C. Trade surplus will decrease. D. Exports grow sharply in August. 61. What does "write its own ticket" probably mean in Paragraph 7? A. Get punishment on its own. B. Draw up its own plan. C. Purchase dollar currency. D. Visit its trading peak. 62. Which statement is TRUE according to the passage? A. China's trade surplus was less than $100 billion in 2010. B. The yuan strengthened beyond 6.4 versus the dollar for 17 years. C. Robert Zoellick suggested the yuan appreciation has positive effect on inflation. D. Lian Ping believed firmly that the yuan's appreciation would help ease inflation. A C B C
D SHANGHAI--Partly because of a string of malfunctions and the July 23 train crash in Wenzhou, the Beijing-Shanghai high-speed railway was not as popular in its first month of operation as many had expected. In a news release on Monday, the Ministry of Railways said the railway had transported 5.26 million passengers from July 1 to July 31, or 170,000 passengers a day on average. And an average of 179 trains including both those that run at 200 km/h and at 300 km/h
trains - were on the line every day, and the trains had an occupancy rate (上座率) of 107%, the ministry said. To many who traveled, that last figure no doubt seems puzzling. How, after all, could carriages that were often half empty have been 107% occupied? Zhao Jian, professor at Beijing Jiaotong University, said the figure is not a good reflection of reality. He accounted for it by noting that a seat aboard one of the trains would be said to have a 200% occupancy rate if one passenger had sat in it from Beijing to Tianjin and then another passenger had occupied the same seat from Suzhou to Shanghai. Despite the impressiveness of those figures, travelers will find, perhaps to their surprise, that they will have little trouble buying tickets to ride the 1,318-km-long high-speed rail line. By 7:30 pm on Monday, passengers could still buy 754 second-class tickets and 148 first-class tickets for a high-speed train that is to leave from Shanghai for Beijing on Tuesday afternoon, according to the China Railway Customer Service Center's website. The train contains 1,066 seats. The story was different for those who want to travel by air between Shanghai and Beijing. Luo Zhuping, board secretary of China Eastern Airlines, said seats on the company's flights on that route are selling well: 90 percent of them continue to be occupied. The situation was different in the first week after the Beijing-Shanghai high-speed train began operating on the last day of Junc. The airline then saw the number of travelers using its service fall by 20 percent and began offering generous discounts to draw in more passengers. Few such incentives are being given now, he said. Still, passengers have not totally abandoned high-speed rails in the days following the Wenzhou train crash, which has killed 40 passengers and injured 191. 63. Which of the following is NOT true about the Beijing-Shanghai high-speed train? A. It began operating on June 30th. B. There are trains that run at different speeds. C. An average of 179 trains were on the line every day. D. On average, 5.26 million passengers take it a day in July. 64. According to Zhao Jian, the occupancy rate of the train is ________. A. unreal B. inaccurate C. unbelievable D. unreasonable 65. What can we infer from the words of the board secretary of China Eastern Airlines? A. Airlines offer more discount to attract passengers. B. The high-speed railway has a great impact on airlines. C. Airlines aren't affected by high-speed railway so much. D. The high-speed railway is much more popular than airlines. 66. What can we know from the 4th paragraph? A. The distance from Belling to Shanghai is 1318 km. B. Passengers can buy tickets only at 7:30 pm on Monday. C. There is some trouble buying the tickets from Shanghai to Belling. D. There are 754 second-class seats and 148 first-class seats in a train.
