周六辅导 一：Cloze test One afternoon, many years ago, I went to pick up my mother from work. I got there a little early so I _1_ the car by the roadside, across the street from where she worked, a
nd waited for her. As I 2 outside the car window to my right, there was a small park where I saw a little boy, around two years old, running freely on the 3 as his mother watched from a short distance. The boy had a big 4 on his face as if he had been set free from some sort of prison. The boy would then fall to the grass, get up, and without looking back at the mother, run as fast as he could, again, 5 with a smile on his face, as if nothing had happened. When the kids especially at an early age, fall down, they don’t see their falling down as 6 , but instead, they treat it as a 7 experience. They feel desired to try and try again until they succeed. The 8 must be…they have not associated “falling down” with the word “failure” yet, thus they don’t know how to 9 the state which accompanies failure. What’s more, they probably think that it’s perfectly okay to fall down, that it’s not 10 to do so. In other words, they give themselves 11 to make mistakes, subconsciously(潜意识地).Thus they 12 encouraged. While I was touched by the boy’s persistence(坚持), I was 13 touched by the manner （态度） in which he ran. With each 14 , he looked so confident…so natural. No signs of fear, nervousness or of being discouraged---as if he didn’t give a 15 about the world around him. 1. A. found B. parked C. took D. drove 2. A. looked B. jumped C. stood D. left 3.

The order in which they finished would decide the order of their 31 (appear) in the Chinese calendar. All the animals lined up on the river bank and 32 (give) the task of getting to the opposite shore. The cat wondered how he would get across 33 he was afraid of water. The ox worried how he would cross 34 his poor eyesight. The calculating rat suggested that he and the cat 35 (jump) onto the ox's back and guide him across. The ox, steady and hard-working, did not notice the two animals on his back. In the meanwhile, the rat ran behind the unsuspecting cat and pushed 36 into the water. As the ox came ashore, the rat jumped off and finished the race first. 37 the rat got the first year 38 (name) after him and the ox got the second year. 39 the lazy pig reached the finish line in 12th place the race was over and he was awarded the final place on the calendar. From that day the cat, 40 never finished and lost his place on the calendar, became the enemy of the rat. 2 Some people live in the world for body while others for dignity(尊严). I once took a walk along the street 16 a Saturday dusk, with a Pepsi can in my hand. An old woman in ragged clothes, 17 was living on collecting used cans, jars and tins, moved slowly towards me, with a bag on the back! 18 (walk) nearer, she looked up at me and then fixed her eyes on my can. At that time, I hadn’t finished my cola, so I gave 19 several coins instead.
She stared at me for a few seconds 20 handed back the money. Quite confused, I asked: “Why not? Isn’t that 21 you want?” “I am not a beggar,” she said 22 (serious), word by word. Instantly, I felt so sorry. I had intended 23 (help) her, completely misunderstanding her. Thus I hurt her. What I could do at that moment was only to drink up the cola and handed her 24 emptied can(罐子). This time, she gave me a smile with 25 (satisfy) and gratitude in her eyes. The woman is poor in material life but is so respectable as a man. I am not only moved but also have learned a good lesson. 三: reading comprehension A If you have a chance to go to Finland, you will probably be surprised to find how “foolish” the Finnish people are. Take the taxi drivers for example. Taxis in Finland are mostly high-class Benz with a fare of two US dollars a kilometer. You can go anywhere in one, tell the driver to drop you at any place, say that you have some business to attend to, and then walk off without paying your fare. The driver would not show the least sign of anxiety. The dining rooms in all big hotels not only serve their guests, but also serve outside diners. Hotel guests have their meals free, so they naturally go to the free dining rooms to have their meals. The most they would do to show their good faith is to wave their registration card to the waiter. With such a loose check, you can easily use any old registration card to take a couple of friends to dine free of charge. The Finnish workers are paid by the hour. They are very much on their own as soon as they have agreed with the boss on the rate. From then on they just say how many hours they have worked and they will be paid accordingly. With so many loopholes（漏洞）in everyday life, surely Finland must be a heaven to those who love to take “petty advantages”. But the strange thing is, all the taxi passengers would always come back to pay their fare after they have attended to their business; not a single outsider has ever been found in the free hotel dining rooms. And workers always give an honest account of the exact hours they put in. As the Finns always act on good faith in everything they do, living in such a society has turned everyone into a real “gentleman”. In a society of such high moral practice, what need is there for people to be on guard against others? 41. While taking a taxi in Finland, _____. A. a passenger pays two US dollars for a taxi ride B. a passenger can go anywhere without having to pay the driver C. a passenger can never be turned down by the taxi driver wherever he wants to go D. a passenger needs to provide good faith demonstration （证明） before they leave without paying 42. We know from the passage that big hotels in Finland_____. A. are mostly poorly managed B. provide meals for any diners C. provide free wine and charge for food D. provide meal for only those who live in the hotels 43. Which of the following is NOT true according to the passage? A. The workers in Finland are paid by the hour. B. The workers are always honest with their working hours. C. The workers and their bosses will make an agreement in advance about the pay. D. The bosses in Finland are too busy to check the working hours of their employees. 44. The word “those” in Paragraph 5 probably means _____. A. people who often take taxis B. people who are dishonest C. people who are worthy of trust D. people who often have meals in big hotels 45. It can be learned that ______________. A. all the Finns are rich B. Finland has been a good place for cheats C. the Finnish society is of very high moral level （道德水平） D. Finnish people are not smart enough in daily life
