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
When I was in primary school, sometimes I would meet a girl of the same age as me . Lisa was never active, but she was always very sweet and nice. In the 5th grade she came to my class. She was absent(缺席) a lot , and one day I had the courage to ask why. She told me she was sick, and she explained she wore a wig(假发) because her medicine made her lose her hair. We left it at that. Anytime Lisa came to class—seldom—I would hang around with her on the playground. I received much ridicule (嘲笑) from my friends for this because they thought I was ignoring them for Lisa. My family education taught me to be nice, and I felt Lisa’s needs were much more important than others I knew. It had been months since Lisa was in our class, and one day our teacher was crying. She explained Lisa died the day before and would no longer be our classmate. She told us Lisa had fought a battle (斗争)with cancer for years. I was shocked. Lisa never spoke of her illness as if it could kill her. Well, all these years I have kept Lisa in my mind and heart. When I go through the important events in my life, I think of Lisa. I’ve had a strong wish recently to find her mother and father. I’d like to tell them that though they never met me, their daughter had a sweet effect on my life. I have no idea what her parents’ first names are. I write to your column (栏目)and hope you can point me in the right direction. Lisa was such a lovely girl. Maybe her parents would be comforted by the fact that after all these years they are not the only ones who remember her. 51. The underlined sentence in Para 2 probably means ________________. A. we discussed the topic and then left together B. we just stopped talking about her illness C. we went away after ta lking about her illness
D. we kept on talking about her illness later 52. Why was the author being laughed at? A. Because she lost her friends because of Lisa. B. Because she wore a wig to school. C. Because she cried in the classroom. D. Because she always played with Lisa. 53. What did the author learn from Lisa? A. To put others’ needs above yours. B. To keep your illness a secret. C. To be nice to everyone everywhere. D. To face challenges in life bravely. 54. The author wrote this passage mainly to __________. A. ask for help to find a friend’s parents B. remember a true friend C. tell her experience of fighting cancer D. show her concern for a friend B If there is one thing I’m sure about, it is that in a hundred years from now we will still be reading newspapers. It’s not that newspapers are a necessity. Even now some people get most of their news from television or radio. Many buy a paper only on Saturday or Sunday. But for most people reading a newspaper has become a habit passed down from generation to generation. The nature of what is news may change. What basically makes news is what affects our lives — the big political stories, the coverage（报导）of the wars, earthquakes and other disasters, will continue much the same. I think there wil l be more coverage of scientific research, though. It’s already happening in areas that may directly affect our lives, like genetic（基因）engineering. In the future, I think there will be more coverage of scientific explanations of why we feel as we do — as we develop a better understanding of how the brain operates and what our feelings really are. It’s quite possible that in the next century newspapers will be transmitted（传送） electronically from Fleet Street and printed out in our own home. In fact, I’m pretty sure that how it will happen in the future. You w ill probably be able to choose from a menu, making up your own newspaper by picking out the things you want to read — sports and international news, etc. I think people have got it wrong when they talk about competition between the different media. They actually feed off each other. Some people once foresaw(预见) that television would kill off newspapers, but that hasn’t happened. What is read on the printed page lasts longer than pictures on a screen or sound in the air. And as for the Internet, it’s never really pleasant to read something just on a screen. 55. What is the best title for the passage?
A. Make Your Own Newspaper.
B. The Best Way to Get News.
C. The Future of Newspaper. D. The Changes of Media. 56. In the writer’s opinion, in the future, _______. A. newspapers will cover more scientific researches B. more big political affairs, wars and disasters will make news C. newspapers will not be printed in publishing houses any longer D. more and more people will prefer watching TV to reading newspapers 57. From the passage, we can infer _______. A. the writer believes some media will die out B. newspapers will win the competition among the different media C. newspapers will stay with us together with other media D. television will take the place of newspaper in the future 58. The phrase “feed off” in the last paragraph means ______. A. compete with B. depend on C. kill off
D. fight with

The Millennium Seed Bank Project, run by Kew Gardens—one of the oldest botanical(植物的) gardens—will officially place the 24,200th species on Thursday, a pink, wild banana from China. More than 50 countries are now on board with Kew's giant task but vast places of the globe, including India and Brazil, still need to join in and donate seeds, director Paul Smith said. The seed bank is one of the largest and most diverse(多样的) in the world with more than 1.5 billion seeds. Its goal is to help protect the planet’s bio-diversity during a time of climate change. The wild banana seed is under threat of extinction(灭绝) in southwest China from agricultural development. It is a vital food source for Asian elephants and important for growing bananas for human eating. Stored at minus-20 degrees centigrade, so they can last for thousands of years, the seeds await the day that scientists hope never comes—when the species no longer exi st in the wild.
It is a race against time, Smith said, because in the last ten years alone, 20 plants held in the bank have already been wiped out in the wild. He estimates that between a third and a quarter will become extinct this century. "It is pressing and it is happening now. An area, the size of England, is cleared of primary vegetation（植被）every year." Smith said. Because most of the world's food and medicines come from nature, protecting wild plant species is quite important, scientists say. There are already many other seed banks safeguarding food crops, which only account for 0.6 percent of plant diversity. For Kew's next goal—to collect a quarter of wild varieties（种类）by 2020—the botanists need 10 million pounds a year, or a further 100 million pounds on top of the 40 million they have already been granted. 63. What’s the final purpose of the Britain’s seed bank? A. To collect enough money for the project. B. To safeguard food crops. C. To protect wild plants from extinction. D. To help scientists study wild plants. 64. We can learn from the passage that _______. A. the seeds in the bank can be used now and then all over the world B. India and Brazil haven’t joined in the Seed Bank Project at present C. there is only one seed bank in the world at present D. the wild plants in places like India and China will never die out 65. What does the underlined word “it” in paragraph 7 refer to? A. The extinction of plant species. B. The Millennium Seed Bank Project. C. Britain’s seed bank. D. Kew Gardens’ next goal. 66. Which of the following isn’t spoken about in the passage? A. The global partnership of collecting wild plant species. B. The temperature condition of the wild plant species in the bank. C. The government’s support for the seed bank project by giving money. D. Scientists’ concern on the extinct wild plant species. E Vans, Keds, Dollies—they sound like the names of rock bands, but if you have teenagers, you'll know they're actually the latest in teenage footwear. But experts are now warning that the latest shoes in different styles will be causing teenagers discomfort(不舒适） in the short term and storing up years of foot, knee and back pain in the future. Here, the experts discover the problems caused by teenagers' shoe choice.
Slip-on shoes with elastic (弹性的) sides are particularly popular among teenage boys - with Keds and Vans th e most sought-after brands. The main problem is that they are just too flat—so flat that the heel, which hits the ground first, also becomes damaged and painful.
The worst shoes of all are such light and thin dolly shoes. The problem is partly their flatness, as with Keds and Vans. However ballet pumps, which have no string or heel, have other specific problems. “As the shoe has no fastening device, it relies on the toes to keep the shoe on, causing a difficult gait（步法）, this leads to short- and long-term problems such as calluses（茧子）, heel and knee pain.”
WEDGES AND STILETTOS
These shoes can also cause problems with gait. They may look good, but the heels on these are so high they can force the wearer's body weight forward, making them very shaky. Teens who wear these shoes regularly are also in danger of joining those millions of women with continuous back pain.
So what do podiatrists 足科医生） （ have on their wish list, especially for everyday wear? Something in a natural, breathable fabric, with a string to hold it on, with a small heel and a deep toe-box that does not press the toes, such as Clark's, Marks & Spencer or Rhino. If your teen insists on wearing 'bad' shoes, get them some simple foot orthotics(矫形器) in the shoes. These support and correct the movement of the foot and, properly fitted by a podiatrist, can often change their walk and halt the damage. 67. Of all the shoes mentioned(提到) in the passage, which can cause the worst problems? A. Marks & Spencer. B. Wedges & Stilettos.
C. Keds and Vans.
D. Ballet Pumps.
69. The underlined word “halt” in the last paragraph probably means _______. A. increase B. worsen C. stop D. cause
70. In which column of Mail Online can you find this passage? A. Sports. B. Science. C. Health. D. Shopping.
