It‘s easy to see how to help others, but what about those whose needs aren‘t so obvious? This story may have happened a while back, but it was a lesson which has stayed with me and helped me ever since. It was Thanksgiving and I was volunteering with my parents at a shelter for the poor. We stood behind the counter dishing out hot food to whoever came in. Most of our dinners looked like they had been having hard times, their clothes old, worn and dry. In short, they looked poor! Then, a man came in, who looked anything but poor. He was well dressed, wearing an expensive suit. I wondered what he was doing there and my jaw dropped in amazement when he joined the line for food. The closer he came to my service station, the more I muttered(咕哝着). What was this man doing? I wanted to know. Surely he wasn‘t going to take food. Then my mother quietly took me to one side. She said, ―You have assumed that the needs of the people who come here must be purely physical: hunger, no enough shelter and needs are excitable? What if he needs comfort, friends, or just to be among other human beings?‖ Her words hit me like a ton of bricks! I felt like I should apologize to the man, but I didn‘t. About a week later the shelter received a large donation from an anonymous(匿名的) source. I can‘t help but wonder if it came from that man. Now, whether I meet others, I remember my mother‘s words and try to send kindness and blessings to them, regardless of how they look. Needs aren‘t always visible. But kindness always makes a difference. 56. The task of the author at the shelter was to_______. A. decide whether dinners looked poor B. learn life experience there C. serve hot food to the poor D. help parents order dishes 57. When the man waited in line, how did the author feel? A. Surprised B. Pitiful C. Excited D. Angry
58 What can we infer from the last paragraph? A. We should show others kindness whatever their needs are B. Some needs can‘t be known clearly at times C. Needs can always be met by kindness D. We should find out others‘ needs B More than half of teachers in a UK survey said they thought plagiarism from the Internet is a problem. Some students who steal essays wholly from the Web, they said, are so lazy they don‘t even bother to take the ads off the cut-and-pasted text. 58 percent of the teachers interviewed in the Association of Teachers and Lectures(ALT) questionnaire had come across plagiarism among their
第 5 页(共 6 页)
pupils. Gill Bullen from Itchen College in Southampton, for example, said pieces handed in by two students were the same and significantly better than either of them could have done.‖ ―Not only that, the essays given in didn‘t quite answer the title question I had set.‖ A teacher from Leeds said, ― I had one piece of work so obviously ?cut and pasted‘ that it still contained ads from the Web page‖ Connie Robinson from Stockton Riverside College, Stockton, said, ― With less able students, it is easy to spot plagiarism as the writing style changes mid-assignment, but with more able students, it is sometimes necessary for teachers to carry out Internet research to find out the source of the plagiarism.‖ Mary Bousted, general secretary of the ALT, said, ―Teachers are struggling under a mountain of cut-and-pasting to spot whether work was the student‘s own or plagiarism.‖ She called for strong policies to oppose plagiarism, and asked for help from the government in providing resources and techniques to delete cheats. 59. What does the underlined word ―plagiarism‖ in Para 1 probably mean? A. making quotations B. stealing others‘ works or ideas C. cutting and pasting on the Internet D. surfing others‘ works or ideas 60. According to Para 2 some students are so lazy that they don‘t_______. A. bother to remove the ads B. want to steal the whole essay C. check the mistakes on the Internet D. bother to do the work of cutting and pasting 61.

What can be the best title for the passage? A. UK students are lazy B. punishment on plagiarism C. Internet plagiarism –a problem in UK D.

million yuan has been put into 3D effects with each 45-mniute episode containing eight minutes of 3D. ―The 3D effects not only cost us a lot of money but also a lot of time,‖ director Kan Weiping said. ―We had to put off its broadcasting time, which was set at first this summer.‖ Passage 2 The Solar Roadway is an intelligent road that provides clean renewable energy using power from the sun, while providing safer driving conditions along with power. American inventors of the Solar Road said that it will power itself, and reduce the country‘s carbon marks. Many panels(平板) are fixed on the Solar Road. The top of the Solar Road panels is made of glass and the inventors are working together with top glass researchers to develop super strong glass that would offer vehicles pulling power they need. The Solar Roadway creates and carries clean renewable electricity and, therefore, electric vehicles can be recharged at any rest stop, or at any business that uses solar road panels in their parking lots. Such parking lots will be safer at night with the light provided by LED within the road panels. The inventors say their solar roadway has many applications and advantages from main roads to driveways, parking lots, bike paths and runways. 63. What‘s Passage 1 mainly about? A.

A. a science fiction C. a product brochure B. a research paper D. a technology report D The common cold is the world's most widespread illness, which is a serious infection that man receives. The most widespread mistake of all is that colds are caused by cold. They are not. They are caused by viruses passing on from person to person. You catch a cold by touching directly or
第 7 页(共 6 页)
indirectly, with someone who already has one. If cold causes colds, it would be reasonable to expect the Eskimos to suffer from them forever. But they do not. And in separate Arctic (北极的)areas, explorers have reported being free from colds until touching again with infected people from the outside world by way of packages and mail dropped from airplanes. During the First World War, soldiers who spent long periods in the trenches, cold and wet, seldom caught colds. In the Second World War, prisoners at Auschwitz concentration camp, bare and starved, were astonished to find that they seldom had colds. At the Common Cold Research Unit in England, volunteers took part in experiments in which they gave themselves to the discomforts of being cold and wet for a long time. After taking hot baths, they put on bathing suits, allowed themselves to be with cold water, and then stood about dripping wet in a room. Some wore wet socks all day while others exercised in the rain until close to exhaustion. Not one of the volunteers came down with a cold unless a cold virus was actually dropped in his nose. If then, cold and wet have nothing to do with catching colds, why are they more frequent in winter? Despite the most hard research, no one has yet found out the answer. One explanation offered by scientists is that people tend to stay together indoors more in cold weather than at other times, and that makes it easier for cold viruses to be passed on. No one has yet found a cure for the cold. There are drugs and pain-killers such as aspirin, but all that they do is to reduce the symptoms. 67. The writer thinks the cause of catching cold is due to_______. A. touching anyone directly B. touching anyone indirectly C. cold weather D. getting viruses from person to person 68. Arctic explorers may catch colds when___. A. they are working in the separate Arctic areas B. they are writing reports in terribly cold weather C. they are free from work in the isolated Arctic regions D. they are coming into touch again with the outside world 69. Volunteers taking part in the experiments in the Common Cold Research Unit___. A. suffered a lot C. often caught colds B. never caught colds D. became very strong
70 . The passage mainly discusses___. A. the experiments on the common cold B. the mistake about the common cold C. the reason and the way people catch colds

They warn that anger can lead to heart disease, stomach problems, headaches, emotional problems and possibly cancer. ___71___ Some people express anger openly in a calm reasonable way. Others burst with anger, and scream and yell. But other people keep their anger inside. They can not or will not express it. This is called repressing anger. For years many doctors thought that repressing(压抑) anger was more dangerous to a person‘s health than expressing it. They said that when a person is angry, the brain releases the same hormones (荷尔蒙). They speed the heart rate, raise blood pressure, or sugar into the blood, etc. ___72__ ___73___ They say the first step is to admit that you are angry and to recognize the real cause of the anger, then decide if the cause is serious enough to get angry about. If it is, they say, ―___74___ Wait until your anger has cooled down and you are able to express yourself calmly and reasonably.‖ Doctors say that a good way to deal with anger is to find humor in the situation that has made you angry. ___75___ A. In general, repressing anger was harmful. B. They said that laughter is much healthier than anger. C. Expressing anger violently is more harmful than repressing it. D. Anger may cause you a cancer. E. Do not express your anger while angry. F. Anger is a normal emotion that we all feel from time to time. G. Doctors say the solution is learning how to deal with anger.

First, remember to turn off lights and water taps when you do not use them. Second, when going out, take public transports, ride a bike or walk as much as possible to reduce carbon emission. Third, use the energy-saving products. Besides of these, there are many other ways we can employ to live a low carbon life. If everyone maintains/ adheres to the lifestyle, it will make a huge change to the current situation and our home will become much more beautiful.
