第二节:完形填空(共 20 小题;每小题 1 分,满分 20 分) I locked my dorm room, and headed for the stairwell. Outside, I 36 for my bicycle, but couldn?t see it anywhere. Then I glanced up and saw it high in the tree branches, completely out of my 37 . This had to be the most 38 moment in my life. Unfortunately, this was only the latest in a series of incidents that led me to a huge 39 : I left the University of California at Davis only two weeks later. I?d decided to 40 Davis for only one reason — my friend, Karin, was going there. “It?s 41 enough for us to go home when we want, but just far enough away so that it feels like a true college 42 ,” Karin said. But she and I 43 living across campus from each other. I grew lonely and 44 , homesick beyond words. One afternoon, I found out that the boys had 45 each of us girls on a scale from 1 to 10. I 46 second from the bottom. My self-confidence was 47 at an all-time low. Meanwhile, my roommate began experimenting with 48 and partying. Because her college experience was opposite to mine, she couldn?t sympathize with my 49 . It seemed like nobody could. The story had a happy ending, however. I 50 three years later from a university (I was able to attend while living at home), a much happier woman. I was 51 , too, for I had learned an invaluable lesson about myself. I was not a typical college student. Our society places a high premium ( 重视 ) on going to 52 , and views the social opportunities to be just as important as the educational ones. But not everyone is made for college. I had a miserable 53 at Davis, but I learned something important — I wasn?t like everyone else. No textbook or teacher could have taught me a better 54 , and for that reason I don?t 55 my life in college. 36. A. turned up B. came back C. stayed on D. looked around 37.

B
It?s what people who don?t know each other talk about on elevators. And not about the weather at all. Chatting about the weather with strangers is about emotional comfort (舒适,安慰). When someone says “Beautiful day today, isn?t it?” as you settle into that narrow elevator space, or at the bus stop, or waiting in line at the supermarket, the conversation is about feelings. The person is speaking to feel more comfortable with you and offering you a chance to feel more comfortable with him or her.
4

Being in close proximity with strangers creates interpersonal tension. We can?t help it. Tension automatically seeks resolution. What will you do? Do you notice the person now only a short distance away, or pretend not to notice? Avoidance is one strategy: never make eye contact and act as if nobody is there, even when your feelings tell you. In a supermarket checkout line you might leaf through a magazine. On elevators, we often avoid others by looking up at the floor numbers. The other strategy is to break the tension by noticing the other person. It starts with eye contact. Then we have a choice: smile, nod, make a remark or strike up a conversation. If we choose to talk, the most non-controversial (非争议的) subject to talk about is the weather. A remark about the weather evokes (唤起) agreement and feelings of sympathy. “What a nice day!” shares a tiny sliver of happiness. “I wonder if this rain will ever end.” shares the bad feelings with each other. Both ends of the mini-conversation feel a tiny bit more connected by experiencing this emotion of liking or disliking the weather at the same moment. 60. What would be the best title of the text? A. Chatting with strangers B. The importance of small talk C. An interesting topic D. Talking about weather with strangers 61. When we chat about the weather with a stranger, we actually intend to ______. A. draw his or her attention to us B. feel comfortable with each other C. remind him or her of the changeable weather D. know more about him or her 62. When we meet a stranger on elevators, we ______. A. can?t avoid eye contact with him or her B. should always pretend not to notice him or her C. can avoid him or her by looking up at the floor numbers D. should start talking first 63. We should first ______ when we meet a stranger in close proximity. A. make eye contact B. turn our eyes away C. give him or her a smile D. give a nod to him or her

C
Poems are essential to human beings. We can?t live without them. We need poems, and the fact that we consider them not worth our time, is something that leaves us impoverished (贫困). If we don?t read poems we are denying ourselves something important. Poems can help us get in touch with our- selves. In one of those fragments (片段) of poetry which many people know, John Donne wrote “ No man is an island”. He means we all live connected to one another. But, at the same time, we all actually are islands, each occupying a consciousness different from everyone else. How do we really know what someone else is thinking or feeling? And, to turn it around, we should keep most of what we think and feel deep inside us, away from the scrutiny (注视) of others. This is the province (领域) of poetry, for it reveals what is inside a fellow human being?s heart and mind. In some cases what they have to say will be important, maybe so important that it will alter your life or transform your sense of who you are and what you are capable of. But poems are not infallible (完美的): sometimes they can seem silly or just plain wrong. We don?t have to bow down in reverence (敬畏) to a poem: if we don?t like what the poet is saying or how he or she is saying it, there is no reason to hide our own feelings. If a poem doesn?t seem to speak to you or me — and we have made a serious attempt to listen — then we are surely justified in deciding you have better things to do than to read that poem again. 64. Which of the following describes the author?s opinion on poems? A. Poems are an important part of our life.
5

B. We can live without poems. C. It?s a waste of time to read poems. D. Poems are becoming less and less important in modern society. 65. By saying “No man is an island”, John Donne really means ______. A. humans tend to separate from each other B. poems can keep people close C. we should focus on our inner feelings D. we can?t be separated from each other 66. Which of the following is TRUE according to the third paragraph? A. Poems are just a way of leisure. B. Poems even have the power to change our lives. C. Poems can help us keep in touch with others. D. Poems can give us strong ability to do things. 67. What kind of attitude should we have towards poems? A. We should always read poems with respect. B. We should only read poems that speak to us. C. We should point out the silly mistakes in poems. D. We should put other important things above poems.

D
Once upon a time, a doting mother asked Albert Einstein what she should read to her son to help him grow up as brilliant and intelligent as the famous scientist. “Fairy-tales,” he said, wisely nodding his head. Why? Why would Albert Einstein — the Nobel Prizes winning physicist recommend reading fairy-tales? Was he joking? All the evidence suggests he was deadly serious. He also said, “When I examine myself and my methods of thought, I come to the conclusion that the gift of fantasy has meant more to me than any talent for abstract, positive thinking.” Childhood is one of the factors that blur (使变模糊) the distinctions between the self and other objects. Thus fantasy stories appeal to children and appear to make sense to them. There are several commonly accepted genres (流派) of fantasy, “Animal Fantasy” which centers around the lives of lovable talking animals and “Modern Fantasy” which focuses on adventures in other worlds and magical events. I am inclined to add a third genre “Human and Animal Fantasy”, which mixes human and animal characters. Another genre of fantasy may be “High Fantasy” which features heroes who combat evil and save the world from destruction. Fantasy feeds a child?s imagination and encourages creativity. The enjoyment that the genre engenders (产生) promotes reading and enhances literacy. Moreover, the fantasy genre may be used for teaching purposes. For example: A story about cruelty to animals would limit appeal to a child; however a fantasy celebration of closeness between the children and their pets may give an element of excitement as the children are able to save animals from someone with cruel intentions. Children love the Harry Potter series, and if they only see the movies they miss a great opportunity to develop their reading skills by spending time with the lovable young wizards and witches (巫婆)of the Hogwarts community. 68. Albert Einstein recommended reading fairy-tales because ______. A. he was just joking with the mother B. he contributed his gift of fantasy to reading fairy-tales C. he got some scientific ideas from fairy-tales D. the gift of fantasy equals to the talent for abstract, positive thinking 69. A student who likes reading about heroes will probably read ______. A. Animal Fantasy B. Modern Fantasy C. Human and Animal Fantasy D. High Fantasy

70. Children are advised to read the Harry Potter series because ______. A. they are better than the films B. they can help improve children?s reading ability C. the films are not true to the original stories D. children can?t learn much from the films

参考答案 一 听力答案。

Happiness Happiness means different things to different people. For example, some students believe that if they have much money or a large number of possessions such as a big house or a famous car , they will be happy. They believe that they will be able to do anything they want to if they have money. Some students think that they should be in good health, and enjoy whatever they like. Many students wish to have much wealth from their parents. In this way they don't have to work hard, and they can have everything. I don't agree with the above points. We can't buy many important things with money, such as health, happiness and knowledge. I value knowledge, which makes me happy, for I can do much for mankind with knowledge. Although different people value happiness differently, my "wealth" of happiness is in my study.
