Last Wednesday as my flight landed in New York, I didn’t notice that one of my earbuds was not like the other （see the photo to the right）. I’ve never had an ear infection （感染） or even an earache in my __21__life, yet over the next few days, I felt a dull and sometimes sharp pain in my ear―especially when sleeping on my __22__side. Over the weekend, I tried to use a Q-Tip（棉签）on my left ear, but it wouldn’t go in. It hurt a lot. __23__, I could still use these earbuds, because the left one was now noticeably __24__ than the right one. I’m ashamed to __25__that it took me until Sunday to understand what now seems to have been obvious: The missing part of the earbud was __26__ in my ear, thus the ear ached. I just couldn’t believe it was in my ear because I could __27__ just fine. I wasn’t in that much pain,
__28__ not all the time. I asked my Facebook friends if such a thing was __29__: Could I really have a piece of rubber in my ear and not really __30__ it?

With that in mind, I walked unwillingly to the clinic（诊所）on Monday night. Sure enough, the nurse found the earbud tip in my left ear. Three times, she tried to dig it out, causing much __32__. Three times, she failed, before the clinic sent me home __33__a note suggesting I see an ENT（ear, nose, and throat） specialist as soon as possible. So I __34__an ENT clinic this morning―with no small amount of nervousness after what I’d gone through last night. However, I was in excellent hands. The doctor __35__me I had nothing to worry about. After taking a photo of the earbud tip, he had another doctor remove it. It took only three seconds, and was totally painless. Victory at last! 21. A. future 22. A. left 23. A. Naturally 24.

Ⅳ.阅读理解（共 11 小题；每小题 2 分，满分 22 分） 阅读下面短文，从各题所给的 A、B、C、D 四个选项中选出最佳选项。
A Jumping across cities
Forget about expensive gyms, the new sport in cities is ree-running. Since it started in a Paris suburb around 1995, free-running has attracted lots of fans in cities around the world. Instead of walking normally, free-runners jump over or around anything―cars, buildings, trees, or streetlights―in their way. One of the sport’s inventors told our reporter how free-running started. It was boring where we lived. There was nothing for us to do after school. We had done playground games like football and basketball when we were kids but we wanted something new and exciting. We started learning how to jump and run between buildings―and we loved it. Walking is a waste of time. Free-runners have to use their imaginations. Everything―a tree, a streetlight―is part of our outdoor gym. We’re like children because we have never stopped playing in the street. The sport’s website has lots of rules, for example, don’t break people’s windows, don’t jump on flowerbeds and don’t be rude to people who want you to stop. Safety is also very important. You must start with the easy moves―you have to do thousands of small practice jumps before you try anything difficult. If you made only one mistake, you might hurt yourself badly. A local person said, “It’s good that young people have something to do. But when they jump off buildings like cats they sometimes frighten other people.”
Don’t try this at home the basics of free-running Blind Jump a jump where you can’t see the landing spot. Tic-tac run and put your foot on a small step, go forward and jump over the next thing. Basic Jump run and jump, land on two feet while bending your knees. To finish roll into head-over-heels. Cat Jump run towards a wall, put both hands on the top of the wall and jump through your arms.
36. Free-running started __________.
A. about twenty years ago C. in big cities of America
B. with the help of schools D. among famous sportsmen
37. Free-runners shouldn’t ____________. A. use their imaginations C. jump on flowerbeds B. start with the easy moves D. run between buildings
38. According to the passage, free-running is a（n）__________sport. A. ancient B. expensive C. safe D. exciting
39. The purpose of this passage is to ___________. A. explain the importance of outdoor activities B. introduce some information about free-running C. warn children not to join in dangerous sports D. advise people to do more exercise at home first
The Future Body Network Are you tired of wires that spread all over your desk and make your tea pour onto your keyboard? If so, you may consider using devices （设备） that use technologies like Wi-Fi or Bluetooth. Neither of them sends information through wires. It sounds perfect, doesn’t it? But this is not the end of the story. Scientists are now trying to use the human body to do a similar job. They have come up with the idea of sending information over the small electric field on the surface of the skin. To do this, a transmitter（传 送器）could be built into your pocket or a portable device like an MP3 player. This transmitter would then use your skin’s electrical field to send information to a receiving device. Since this kind of transmission can only go as far as 20cm, the receiver would have to be close to some part of your body. By using this body network, you wouldn’t need a wire to link your MP3 player in your pocket to the
headphones in your ears, or to send to your computer the pictures from a digital camera hanging around your neck. Moreover, you can exchange electronic cards or share music files with others by shaking hands, dancing cheek（脸颊）to cheek, or kissing each other. Now, here comes a question. Why would anyone want to use their body as a network when Wi-Fi and Bluetooth already exist? The answer lies in the fact that with Wi-Fi or Bluetooth, it is hard to limit the signals only to your own use. In a busy place, you can never know who might steal your information. However, body networking is safer. It is hard for other people to pick up signals sent over the surface of your skin since this body network only has a limit of 20cm from your body. Thus, no one else can easily pick up and interpret your signals. Moreover, the most important use of body networking in the future may well be communication within the body rather than just on its surface. Imagine having a number of small devices implanted under your skin and using them to control your own nervous system. In other words, imagine that you have a powerful in-body computer. What do you think of this idea? Does it sound cool, like being a character in the movie RoboCop? Or would you prefer to be just an ordinary human being? 40. What’s the main idea of the passage? A. Technology is causing us to be lazy. C. Technology is advancing too quickly. B. Technology is doing harm to our body. D. Technology is making our life easier.
41. Which of the following is NOT the way to exchange information over the skin? A. Shaking hands. C. Kissing each other. B. Looking into one’s eyes. D. Dancing cheek to cheek.
42. The body network is safer because _________. A. the information is only important to you B. the information is stored inside your body C. the information is sent out only 20cm from your body D. the information is controlled by your nervous system 43. The movie RoboCop is most likely about________. A. a man that is controlled by a computer B. a computer that turns into a man C. a robot that catches a thief D. a thief that steals a robot
C Airport Delays on the Rise Delays cause extreme anger among travelers, and cost the country billions in lost productivity. An FAA study listed eleven major problems and suggested eleven solutions. All problems are in air traffic control. The various regions （地区） don’t talk to each other enough. Each region operates differently and the number of planes in so-called regional traffic is increasing. In the first of eleven solutions, an FAA national center will take control from the regions during heavy traffic or bad weather. Jane Garvey of the FAA says, “The purpose of the command（指挥）center is to really make those decisions that affect the system in total.” Also, the FAA promises publicly again to upgrade its computers. Michael Barr is a safety expert at the University of Southern California, “We’ve got fares that are reduced. More people want to fly and we are actually filling the air of the United States with air traffic.” An example of this is that the San Francisco International Airport is growing fast as a world-wide gateway and as a center to an expanded（扩展的）regional service. Ron Wilson of the San Francisco International Airport says, “If we’ve got 16, 17, 18 aircraft, departing at 8 a.m., the guy that is on the 18th plane is going to be 40 minutes late.” Jane Garvey says, “It’s important to note that flying is more popular. It’s becoming a form of public transportation for a number of people. That’s having an effect on the delay numbers as well.” Weather causes about 70% of delays. Then the FAA moves planes farther apart from five miles to as much as 20 miles. The new rule may reduce that to 10 miles. But if the sky is already crowded, where do those planes go? A traveler says, “Naturally, I think the more space between planes, the safer for travelers.” The FAA calls it an improvement, not a final solution. The public say the major problems remain: too many planes, too few controllers and too little modernization. 44. According to the FAA study, the biggest problem leading to airport delays lies in __________. A. the reduced plane fares C. the poor air traffic control B. the expanded regional service D. the increasing passenger numbers
45. What is the writer’s attitude towards reducing the space between planes? A. Doubtful. B. Supportive. C. Confident. D. Interested.
46. It can be inferred from the passage that __________. A. the FAA will take control from the regions according to their requirements B. passengers had better be prepared for airport delays in the near future C. upgraded computer systems promise planes to be on time D. plane fares will get raised to reduce passengers

Ⅱ. 阅读表达（共 4 小题；每小题 2 分，满分 8 分） 阅读下面的短文和问题，根据短文内容，在相应题号后的横线上写下相关信息（不多于十二个 单词），完成对该问题的回答。答语要意思清楚，结构正确，书写工整。 New Job, Same Company: Learning the Ropes Starting a new job means learning the ropes at an unfamiliar place, but it can be harder for those faced with a new position within the same company. It’s happening more these days as companies downsize. Whether you are moving from one job in your own department to another or suddenly answering to a new boss, you need to take steps to avoid the difficulties of office politics and work overload. ·Learn the new rules. Just because you are still in the same company, doesn’t mean you will be playing by the same rules. Take the time to learn how things operate in your new work situation. Do not say “It’s easy to think, I know the company, and I’ve been here for 20 years.” It’s really important not to think that it’s the same.
·Talk it out. When moving from one job to another, you are likely to have twice the work. You might be eager to start the new job, but who will take over your old role? What are your new job responsibilities? Besides, if you’re asked to take on work in addition to what you do now, ask what you should do first and find out who you will report to for the new responsibilities. ·Stay open. Reorganization usually leads to worry among employees, whether it’s a favorite co-worker whose place you’ll be taking or former peers who now report to you. You’ll be bringing whatever old baggage you have and dealing with the worries of new colleagues. Don’t be surprised by push-back from co-workers who may see your new role as a danger to them. Be open with your colleagues about your role and how it fits into the group. ·Keep relationships. While you may have a new set of colleagues, keeping relationships with old co-workers and managers is important, particularly in such a difficult work environment. But stop by to invite a former boss to coffee. You might some day go back to work with them. 1. Who is the passage written for? ______________________________________________________________________________ 2. How much work are you likely to have when moving from one job to another? ______________________________________________________________________________ 3. What does reorganization usually lead to? ______________________________________________________________________________ 4. Why is it important to keep relationships with your old colleagues? ______________________________________________________________________________
Ⅲ. 阅读理解（共 4 小题；每小题 2 分，满分 8 分） 阅读下面短文，从各题所给的 A、B、C、D 四个选项中选出最佳选项。 Murder is totally unfair. The victims（牺牲者）of murder are gone forever. They will never enjoy the pleasures in life. But the murderer is still alive. Without the death sentence, murderers can participate in life. Most killers would rather spend their lives in prison than die. It is natural that they want to live. In prison there are many small pleasures: the feeling of warm sunshine, the taste of a hot meal and the comfort of sleep. The lifestyle in prison is not always arduous; many prisoners have the chance to continue their education, to play sports, and to receive visits from their loved ones.
There is no reason why a killer should be allowed to live. Justice（公正）requires that each person respect the rights and freedoms of every other person, or be punished for not doing so. The murderers give up their rights to citizenship and to life itself. Also, keeping the killer in prison will cost taxpayers a lot of money. For these reasons, the only fair punishment is execution― to put the murderers to death. The other side of this debate is that there are times when murder is committed not because of cruelty. People may kill for other reasons, such as out of anger, misunderstanding, or fear. Everyone has made mistakes because of such feelings. Sometimes people kill another person because they are defending themselves; this is another good reason to be careful when judging a person who has killed someone. It is a very serious issue when someone takes another person’s life. This is why it is so important to examine the facts of a murder closely. The reasons for murder are usually not very simple and that is why the government must take great care with this responsibility. The main concern is sentencing someone who didn’t commit the murder. When the government kills someone, there is no way it can be changed. So the government must be sure they have the right person. There is also the possibility that the people who committed the murder may change their life in prison and teach others to change their dangerous lifestyle. This way, a killer may be a benefit to society. Also, it takes many years before a killer is put to death, for there are extra trials and legal expenses the government must pay for. Finally, people must consider the idea of whether it is right for the government to kill someone who has killed a person. Is it right to answer violence with more violence? 1. The underlined word “arduous” in Paragraph 2 probably means____________. A. violent B. pleasant C. comfortable D. difficult
2. What is the passage mainly about? A. The advantages and disadvantages of imprisoning a criminal for life. B. The arguments about how the government can reduce the murder rate. C. The disagreement on whether a murderer should be put to death or not. D. The suggestions on how to improve the living conditions of the prisoners. 3. According to the passage, what should the government make sure about? A. The taxpayers prepare the money for extra trials. B. The person who is to be put to death is a murderer. C. The government will never change its beliefs to kill murderers. D. The murderers want to give up their rights to citizenship and life.
4. Which statement supports the idea that murderers should be put to death? A. Killing a murderer is a violent act in itself in modern times. B. People can change, even those who have made terrible mistakes. C. Someone who didn’t commit the murder might be put to death wrong. D. Let sunshine fall on those who respect life, not on those who destroy it.
