一. 阅读理解 A Just as some people think that certain numbers are lucky or unlucky, others believe that we can use numbers to understand our personalities, or predict what will happen to us in the future. Numerology is a way of using numbers to describe a person’s character, and to make predictions about future life events. Numerologists use the numbers 1-9, 11 and 22 — also known as the “master” numbers — to help a person understand his or her personality, life goals, and destiny. Numerologists consider your Life Path number to be the most significant because this number describes your character. To find this number, add together all the numbers in your date of birth. For example, a person born on April 25, 1985 would add the month (4), to the numbers of the date (2+5), plus the numbers of the birth year (1+9+8+5). In this case the total is 34, so this person’s life path number is 7(3+4). Numerologists believe that people with this number are peaceful and affectionate but can also be very reserved. Your Expression number describes your talents and predicts how you should use these to fulfill your destiny in life. Numerologists assign a number between 1 and 9 to each of the letters in your name. These numbers are then added together in the same way as before to find your Expression number. Numerologists can also do calculations to predict when the most challenging periods of your life will be. Numerologists also believe that the day a person is born is important. Each day of the month has a character description. People born on the fourth are said to be responsible, honest, and stubborn. People born on the fifteenth have very strong attachments to family and home. Those who celebrate their birthday on the thirtieth are artistic, creative, and imaginative, and often make good writers. If we calculate the numerical value of our name and birth date, numerologists believe that we can learn more about our personalities. They also believe that we can predict our destinies, how our lives will progress, and what challenges we may face along the way. To the numerologist, numbers can be used in many more ways than we think. 1. If a person was born on November 8, 1995, what is his Life Path number? A. 7 B. 8 C. 9 D. 11 2. To understand your abilities and how to use them in your life, you should calculate your ______. A. Life Path number B. name and birth date C. birthday D. Expression number 3. According to the passage, a person born on the fifteenth tends to be _______. A. stubborn B. artistic C. home-loving D. imaginative 4. According to the passage, numerologists believe that _________. A. Life Path number can be used to predict a person’s most challenging life periods B. numbers can help people better understand themselves C. Expression number is the most meaningful for people to learn a person’s character D. numbers can be used to change a person’s future B Do you listen to music at work? Perhaps you should. Music is particularly popular in the medical profession, especially among surgeons. A recent survey showed that 90% of surgeons in the UK put music on the sound system in the theatre during

operations. Plastic surgeons (整形外科医生) play the most music, it appears; ear, nose and throat specialists the least. But it isn’t only in surgeries where music is popular. In another recent survey, one-third of the 1,613 people said they listen to music while working. And 79% of them said that humming along improves their job satisfaction or productivity. Is listening to music at work a good idea? Yes, say the experts. Many surgeons say that music contributes to creating a “calm atmosphere”, and a third of them added that it helped stop them getting bored! Also, listening to music raises the levels of a brain chemical that can help people focus. Office workers say it improves job satisfaction. Listening to music is also good for hospital patients. Several studies suggest that those who listen to music through headphones during surgery require less anaesthetic (麻醉剂), up to 50% less in some cases, and recover more quickly afterwards. “There’s no question, music reduces anxiety before surgery,” says Zeev Kain, an anaesthetist at Yale University. So, what type of music should we be listening to? The surgeons from the previous survey favoured rock, pop music and classical. Other surveys have found that hip-hop is popular too. However, whatever the kind, it appears that self-selected music is the best option. Pennsylvania State University researchers, from the State University of New York at Buffalo, found that when listening to self-selected music, surgeons did the maths faster and more accurately than when they were listening to music chosen for them. Will you be playing some music at work? If you’re a surgeon, try to avoid playing the Rolling Stones’ song “Let It Bleed”! 5. The underlined word “theatre” in Paragraph 2 probably means ________. A. an operating room B. a rest room for surgeons C. a waiting room in a surgeons D. a building where shows are performed 6. The surveys mentioned in Paragraphs 2 and 3 show ________. A. most English surgeons are music-lovers B. music is popular among many professions C. patients benefit a lot from listening to music D. more than half the people listen to music at work 7. Listening to music at work has many advantages EXCEPT ________. A. improving memory B. keeping people relaxed C. improving concentration D. helping people keep interested 8. The passage is mainly about ________. A. how to choose music wisely B. where to find the best music C. the popularity of music in hospitals D. the benefits of listening to music at work 二.根据短文内容, 从短文后的选项中选出能填入空白处的最佳选项, 并在答题卡上将该项涂 黑。选项中有两项为多余选项。 Easy Ways to Keep Your Brain Sharp Everyone is forgetful, but as we age, we start to feel like our brains are slowing down a bit—and that can be a very annoying thing. 1.

Therefore, it’s important for us to form healthy eating habits. However, some students have formed a variety of bad eating habits, such as not having breakfast, loving eating snacks, being particular about food, eating and drinking too much and so on, which will surely do harm to their health. To keep healthy, we should have healthy diets. Not only should we have various foods, like fish, meat, vegetables, fruits as well as rice, noodles, but also we should have the foods regularly and properly. Personally, I think it is important to keep a healthy diet, which contributes to building up a strong body. Only in this way can we have enough energy to study better.
