阅读理解 (建议用时: 25 分钟) A 体裁 议论文 题材 禽流感的防治 词数 373 Tiredness, coughing, a runny nose and a sore throa
t—among all sicknesses there is probably none more common than the flu, which we all get now and then. However, bird flu is a completely different story. Ten years ago, the H5N1 bird flu swept across 15 countries, including China, with sufferers reporting chest pain, difficulty breathing, fever and severe coughing. More than 600 people were infected, and about 60 percent died. Now another type of bird flu hit Shanghai and three neighboring provinces, and this time the virus is called H7N9. By the afternoon of April 11, the new virus had taken nine lives out of 35 infected, according to Xinhua News Agency. The “H” and “N” in the virus’ name refers to two kinds of proteins
on the surface of the virus. Any change of the numbers of the two proteins indicates a new mutation(变异). Most of the mutations only affect birds, such as chickens and pigeons, and don’t normally spread to humans. But once they do, the results can be disastrous. “Any time an animal influenza virus crosses to humans, it is a cause for concern, ” Malik Peiris, virologist(病毒学家)at the University of Hong Kong, told Nature magazine. Take the SARS epidemic(传染病)10 years ago as an example. The virus behind the disease is thought to have jumped to humans from animals. The virus was a complete “stranger” to human bodies, which hadn’t developed an immunity against it. But there is something more about the new H7N9 bird flu. Unlike
the H5N1 bird flu, which causes severe sickness in birds, the H7N9 has been evolving under the radar(悄悄地)since it travels between birds without causing noticeable illness. That makes it difficult to keep track of the disease. The good news is that there’s so far no sign that the virus is spreading from person to person. But since there is no vaccine for the disease yet, the World Health Organization recommends that you wash your hands after meeting with sick people and before and after you eat or prepare food, and they also suggest avoiding contact with birds or their eggs. 1. Which of the following statements is TRUE according to the text?
A. The H5N1 bird flu turned out to have something to do with the SARS epidemic. B. More than 600 people across the world died from the H5N1 bird flu ten years ago. C. Most of the mutations of the proteins in the bird flu virus are harmful to both birds and humans. D. The name, H7N9 bird flu, shows that there have been new mutations of the proteins in the virus. 2. With the example of the SARS epidemic in Paragraph 5, the author intends to .
A. introduce where the SARS virus came from B. inform us of the harmful effects of the SARS epidemic ten years ago C. show the horrible effects an animal influenza virus can have once it spreads to humans D. compare the differences between the SARS epidemic and the H7N9 bird flu 3. What makes the H7N9 bird flu more frightening than the H5N1 bird flu according to the text? A. It can cause severe sickness in birds. B. It can spread from person to person. C. It affects a greater number of birds. D. It doesn’t sicken birds and thus can spread unnoticed.
4. What are people advised to do to protect themselves against the H7N9 bird flu? a. To get vaccinated for the disease. b. To keep away from birds and their eggs. c. To stop eating chickens and ducks. d. To avoid meeting with sick people. e. To wash hands thoroughly and regularly. A. a, b B. c, d C. b, e D. a, e
B (2013· 宁夏模拟) 体裁 记叙文 题材 第一次欧洲旅行 词数 326 As a boy growing up in India, I had longed to travel abroad. I used to listen to the stories my father would tell me about his stay in Canada and tours to Europe in the 1970s, with great interest. My big moment finally came in the summer of 1998 when I was able to accompany my parents to Europe, where my father was to attend a meeting. We planned to travel to Belgium, Netherlands and West Germany. I have vivid memories even today of going to Mumbai airport at
night all excited about finally going abroad. I had heard several great things about Lufthansa till then but now I finally got to experience them first hand, during the flight to Frankfurt. We flew business class and even today I can remember the excellent service by the Lufthansa crew. The flight was really smooth and thoroughly enjoyable, even for someone like me, who is otherwise scared of flying. After spending almost two weeks in Europe, we took the Lufthansa airport express from Dusseldorf to Frankfurt airport, for our return flight. What a journey that was! All along the Rhine(莱茵河), it was simply an unforgettable experience. I was in a sombre mood on the flight back to Mumbai as it marked the end of a wonderful vacation, but the Lufthansa crew members were able to change it into a most enjoyable experience yet again, with the quality of their service. Being the first airline to take me overseas, Lufthansa will always hold a special place in my heart. Even today, I continue to enjoy flights on Lufthansa and simply cannot dream of choosing any other airline. Flying, in general, for me, has always been an ordeal (terrible and painful experience). Flying on Lufthansa, however, is something I always have and always will look forward to. 5. Which country does the author live in now? A. India. B. Canada. C. Belgium. D. Germany.

1998? A. The author traveled with one of his parents. B. Both their going and return are by air. C. They traveled in spring that year. D. They stayed in Europe for nearly two months. 7.
