Ⅲ.阅读理解 Many of us still tend to think that emotions can affect reasonablethought, and sometimes land us in trouble.But in recent years psychologists have taken quite a different view.Keith Oatley, Professor of Psychology at Glasgow University,is involved in the research which shows the fundamental importance of emotions. He believes we_are_very_ambivalent_about_them : we think of our emotions as being unreasonable,but we also consider them as essential to being human.For example,Mr Spock,a character in the television series Star Trek , is superintelligent and he has no emotions at all.However, he is never made captain of the spaceship.Maybe, this is because Mr Spock is not the kind of person you can share your feelings with—a person who shows his emotions. As Professor Oatley points out,our emotions have very important functions,for example, fear.If we cross the road and a car approaches,we usually stop moving or step back.We stop what we are doing,check what we have done and pay very careful attention to the environment.The emotion of fear makes us take this small series of actions which,on average,help preserve our safety. On the other hand,if things are going well and small problems come up,we find we can solve them with the resources we have to hand.As a consequence,we tend to feel happy and

usually continue doing the job. Anger is an emotion that tends to occur when someone is preventing something.Then this small “kit” of reactions enables us to aggressive to that person,or to try harder,and so on. Professor Oatley believes emotions generally occur at these important moments in actions.With fear and anger our emotions make us decide to start doing something else,while with happiness they “suggest” we continue what we are already doing. 1.What’s Keith Oatley’s opinion about emotions? A.They affect reasonable thought. B.They get us into trouble. C.They are helpful to us. D.They are reasonable. 2.What does the underlined part “we are very ambivalent about them” in Paragraph 2 mean? A.We have contradictory feelings towards emotions. B.We have similar ideas of emotions. C.We are quite clear about emotions. D.We can do nothing about emotions. 3.Which of the following is NOT mentioned in the passage? A.Fear helps us to be careful about our surroundings. B.Happiness inspires us to continue what we are doing. C.Anger may urge us to make greater efforts. D.Anger tends to do us more harm than good. 4.It can be inferred from the passage that________. A.we must control our emotions in daily life B.emotions play a more important part than we realize C.positive emotions such as love and joy are good for us D.negative emotions make us continue what we are doing 【语篇解读】 相关研究表明,情感对人而言至关重要,不可或缺。 1.C [细节理解题。根据文章第一段最后一句中的“which shows the fundamental importance us from doing prepare ourselves to be quite

of emotions”以及第三段中的“our emotions have very important functions”可知, Oatley 认为 情感对我们来说是有益的。] 2.A [句意理解题。根据第二段中的“we think of our emotions as being unreasonable,but we

also consider them as essential to being human”可知,我们认为我们的情感毫无道理,但对 于我们人类来说,它是必不可少的,这足以说明我们的矛盾心理。] 3.D [细节理解题。本题可用排除法。根据第三段的内容可知 A 项正确;根据第四段的最

后一句可知 B 项正确;根据第五段的最后一句可知 C 项正确。] 4.B [推理判断题。根据文章最后一段的内容可推知,积极的情感和消极的情感都发挥着

比我们意识到的更重要的作用。] Ⅳ.短文改错 I was working in a beer company,helped the president do something important.At the same time, my mother was in the final stages of the cancer.I worked during the day and drive 40 miles

home to be with her every night.It was tired,but it was that I want to do.I didn’t want bother the president with my trouble, yet I felt someone at the company needed to know about it.So I told a friend and asked him not to share the information with someone.However,the president called me into his office one day.He faced me from across her large desk,looked at me and said, “Alice,I hear your mother is very ill.” I was caught by a surprise and burst into tears.He just gentle said a sentence I will never forget:“Whatever you need.” 答案 I was working in a beer company, helped the president do something important.
