I wandered about for an hour, looking for a likely 32 , feeling as though I were about to commit a crime. Then I 33 at last under a bridge near the station and decided to have a try. I felt tense and 34 . It was the first time, after all. I drew the violin from under the jacket like a gun. It was here, in Southampton, with trains rattling overhead, that I was about to 35 myself. One moment I was part of the hurrying crowds, the next I stood apart, my back to the wall, my hat on the 36 before me, the violin under my chin. The first notes I played were loud and raw, like a declaration of protest, then they settled down and began to run more _37 and to stay more or less in tune. To my 38 ,I was neither arrested nor told to shut up. Indeed, nobody took any 39 at all. Then an old man, without stopping at all, dropped a penny into my 40 as though getting rid of some guilty evidence. I worked the streets of Southampton for several days, gradually obtaining the truth of the 41 by trial and error. It was not a good thing, for instance, to let the hat fill up with money---the
sight could 42 a kind-hearted man; nor was it wise to 43 it completely, which could also confuse him, giving him no hint as to where to 44 his money. Placing a couple of pennies in the hat to start the thing going soon became a 45 practice and I made sure, between tunes, to take off most of the earnings, but always leaving two 46 behind. Old 47 were most generous, and so were women with children, shop girls and barmaids. As for men, heavy drinkers were always willing listeners and so were big guys with muscles. But 48 a man with an expensive hat, briefcase or dog: respectable types were the least 49 of all. Except for retired army officers, who would shout "Why aren't you 50 , young man?" and then would over-tip to cover up their confusion. 31. A. violin B. art C. skill D. luck 32. A. station B. spot C. street D. bridge 33. A. played B. wandered C. stopped D. sat 34. A. nervous B. excited C. lost D. strange 35. A. shame B. show C. damage D. declare 36. A. wall B. bridge C. pavement D. road 37. A. smoothly B. slowly C. angrily D. roughly 38. A. excitement B. sorrow C. astonishment D. surprise 39. A. money B. pity C. notice D. rest 40. A. hat B. pocket C. hand D. bag 41. A. people B. trade C. performance D. music 42. A. encourage B. help C. support D. discourage 43. A. fill B. empty C. tear D. hide 44. A. make B. get C. drop D. earn 45. A. modern B. regular C. timely D. economic 46. A . pennies B. dollars C. pounds D. euros 47. A. workers B. teachers C. doctors D. ladies 48. A. never B. often C. always D. sometimes 49. A. generous B. comfortable C. handsome D. selfish 50. A. playing B. working C. cheating D. shopping 第三部分 阅读理解（共 12 小题；每小题 2 分，满分 24） 阅读下列短文，从每题所给的四个选项（A、B、C 和 D）中，选出最佳选项，并在答题 卡上将该项涂黑。 A Motorists over the age of 75 face compulsory tests of their eyesight and ability to drive under proposals being considered by ministers. The biggest overhaul of motoring law in a generation could also lead to all drivers having to give assurances of their fitness to get behind the wheel every 10 years. Other changes under consideration include issuing daylight driving licenses for motorists with night blindness, together with stricter checks on all drivers whose medical condition brought a threat to other road users. It is understood that the proposals will be part of a review of the law governing the medical fitness of drivers that will be announced publicly by the summer. The Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency is dealing with a rising number of motorists who are concerned that they have conditions---from failing eyesight to epilepsy---that could affect their
driving. In 2006, the DVLA dealt with 600,000 motorists whose physical ability to drive needed to be recertified（重新认证）, a 20 per cent rise on the previous year. With an ageing population, the biggest challenge is dealing with the rising number of elderly motorists. By 2021, there will be an estimated three million drivers over the age of 70 on Britain’s roads. Drivers must renew their licenses at the age of 70 and every three years thereafter. The applicant is legally required to tell the DVLA of any conditions that could weaken their ability behind the wheel. Ministers have ruled out a compulsory maximum age for driving but will instead rely on tightening up the checks on motorists over the age of 75. The most likely option would be tests to ensure motorists were fit to drive. They would include an eyesight test and a cognitive （认知） test that would prove a driver's ability to react to road signs, driving conditions, pedestrians and vehicles. However, checks are likely to be tightened at all ages. The strictest controls are expected to be imposed （强制） on motorists of any age who have had a heart attack or stroke. They could have to produce a doctor's approval to resume（重新得到）driving. Anyone making a false declaration would be guilty of a criminal offence. 51. Which of the following statements is TRUE according to the passage? A. The new motoring law will come into effect by the summer． B. Drivers over the age of 75 must renew their licenses every three years． C. Doctors will decide whether one can get their driving licenses． D. Drivers at all ages will be expected to provide their medical condition． 52. What is the biggest challenge to the traffic safety in Britain according to the writer? A. Ageing population． B. Increasing number of cars． C. Increasing number of elderly motorists． D. Driving conditions． 53. The underlined word “overhaul” in Paragraph 2 means _______． A. change B. consideration C. concern D. challenge 54. What can be inferred from the passage? A. There will be more and more aged drivers in Britain． B. Anyone can get a driving license as long as he/she is in good health． C. Health tends to decline as one gets old． D. It will be guilty to make a false declaration． B The art of reading fiction is largely a matter of inferring meanings. To infer means to understand facts which are not directly stated---only suggested. Inference is one of the commonest ways of knowing things: a child holds his knee and cries; this action implies his feeling; an observer infers that the child is hurt. To infer accurately in everyday life requires caution in observing; to infer skillfully in fiction requires caution in reading; both require disciplined imagination. The short-story reader can expect to find certain basic elements in any story. For example, all stories involve a person or persons, in a particular setting, faced with a demand for a response. The response called for may be a physical action, such as defeating an adversary(对手) or escaping from a danger; or it may be a mental action, such as adjusting to others or within oneself. In either case, the short story is a description in two ways: first, it shows the motives for a given human action; second, it makes a point about the general human situation. Such descriptions, however, rather than being stated directly, usually are implied by the elements of the story.
When the reader of a story understands all the facts and their interrelationships, he is ready to infer the significance of the story as a whole---its comment on the human situation. This comment, or theme, is the seed from which the story grew. It is also the idea by which all the separate elements of the story are governed, while these in turn further shape and modify the theme. In addition to action, character, and setting, these elements include structure, mood, tone, and point of view. Fiction reading requires an awareness of all the ways in which a story communicates. It also requires attention to detail. What the author provides is a network of points which serve as clues to his meaning. He invites the reader to develop the meaning by inference, actually to create much of the story himself and so make it part of his own experience. 55. According to the author, "infer" means ________ . A. knowing facts beyond the statement B. looking for more evidences for the statement C. finding out a different meaning from the statement D. adding some facts to the statement 56. What is inferring in fiction based on? A. Readers’ guessing. B. The basic elements of the story. C. The setting of the story. D. The interrelationships between people in the story. 67. What is the implied meaning of the last sentence? A. Inferring can really help the reader develop imagination and enrich himself. B. Inferring can help the reader write a story of his own. C. The reader should look for an experience described in the story he reads. D. The experience described in the story will leave a great impact on its reader. 58. What is the main idea of this passage? A. Inferring is an art of writing. B. Inferring is a need in fiction writing. C. Inferring is the basic skill in reading fiction. D. Inferring is common in reading. C We all like watching online videos of dogs and cats doing funny things. But if you had to decide, which of the two animals would you say you might like better? Your answer may say something about your personality. According to a 2010 study led by Sam Gosling, a scientist at the University of Texas, US, dog people are about 15 percent more outgoing and 13 percent more pleasant to be friends with than cat people. This is not hard to understand, since cats and dogs behave differently themselves. “Cats will occasionally engage in social activities, but usually after only a few minutes, they will abandon the game. Dogs, on the other hand, will often engage in play, like fetching a thrown ball, for hours at a time,” said Modern Dog Magazine. Although cat people are less social, Gosling’s study showed that they are 11 percent more open-minded than dog people. They usually like art, adventures and unusual ideas. They also have more imagination and curiosity. But dog people are more likely to stick to old beliefs and traditional interests.
However, their love of a free lifestyle also means that cat people dislike making plans. They just follow whatever ideas pop into their heads without planning ahead. But dog people are different. They usually have strong self-control and like to carry out their plans. Despite these big differences between dog people and cat people, there are some things that they have in common, “Both types of people consider themselves close to nature, dislike animal-print clothing, and are generally optimists,” noted Mother Nature Network. But can personality change? Can a cat person become a dog person, or the other way around? In a study done by Stanley Coren, a scientist based in Canada, he asked cat owners: “If you had enough living space and there were no objections form other people in your life, and someone gave you a puppy as a gift, would you keep it?” About 68 percent of them said they would not accept a dog as a pet. But when dog owners were asked the same question about a kitten, almost 70 percent said they would allow a cat into their lives. 59. According to the article, dog people _____________ cat people. A. perform better in school than B. are more open-minded than C. have closer friends than D. are more traditional than 60. The underlined phrase “engage in” in Paragraph 3 probably means_____________. A. take little interest in B. take part in C. benefit from D. suffer from 61. What do cat people and dog people have in common? A. Both of them like planning ahead B. Both of them love travelling and adventures C. Both of them are imaginative and curious D. Both of them care about nature. 62. What can we conclude from the last two paragraphs? A. Cat people are more likely to become dog people. B. Dog people are more likely to accept cats into their homes than cat people are to accept dogs. C. Neither dog nor cat people like to accept a new pet. D. It is difficult to find out whether dog people or cat people will make a change.
第Ⅱ卷（非选择题，共 46 分）
第四部分 任务型阅读(共 10 小题；每小题 1 分，满分 10 分) 请认真阅读下列短文，并根据所读内容在文章后表格中的空格里填入一个最恰当的单词。 注意：请将答案写在答题卡上相应题号的横线上。每个空格只填 1 个单词。 Not so long ago almost any student who successfully completed a university degree or diploma course could find a good job quite easily. Companies toured the universities, competing with each other to persuade graduates to join them. However, those days are gone, even in Hong Kong, and nowadays graduates often face strong competition in the search for jobs. Most jobs organizations have provided three stages for graduates to follow in the process of finding a suitable job: recognizing abilities, matching these to available chances and presenting them well to future employers. Job seekers have to make a careful judgment of their abilities. One area of judgment should be of their academic qualifications, which would include special skills within their subject area. Graduates should also consider their own personal values and attitudes, or the relative importance to themselves of such matters as money, confidence, leadership and caring for others. An honest
judgment of personal interests and abilities such as creative or scientific skills, or skills developed from work experience, should also be given careful thought. The second stage is to study the chances available for employment and to think about how the general employment situation is likely to develop in the future. To do this, graduates can study available job chances and information in newspapers or they can visit a job office, write to possible employers for information or get in touch with friends or relatives who may already be holding a particular profession. After studying all the various choices, they should be in a position to make informed comparisons between various jobs. A good personal presentation is necessary in the search for a good job. Job application forms and letters should, of course, be filled in carefully and correctly, without grammar or spelling mistakes. Where additional information is asked for, job seekers should describe their abilities and work experience in detail, with examples if possible. They should try to balance their own abilities with the employer’s needs, explain why they are interested in a job with the particular company and try to show that they already know something about the company and its activities. When graduates are asked to attend an interview, they should prepare properly by finding out all they can about the would-be employer. Dressing suitably and arriving for the interview on time are also obviously important. Interviewees should try to give positive and helpful answers and should not be afraid to ask questions about anything they are unsure about. This is much better than pretending to understand a question and giving an unsuitable answer. There will always be good job chances for people with ability, skills and determination. The secret to achieving a good job is to be one of them. Job seekers must (65) ___________their abilities carefully. They must take their values and attitudes into (66) __________. They must make a study in various ways. They should (67) __________ various jobs to find a suitable one. They should fill in the job application forms and give information about their abilities and work experience in (68) __________. They should speak more about the company to show they are (69) __________ with it. Gather as much (70) __________ as they can about the would-be employer. (71) __________ suitably and arrive on time. Try to be (72) _______ when asking questions.
Recognizing abilities The (63)______ of finding a suitable job Three stages Matching abilities to available chances
Giving a good personal (64) __________

Compared with the traditional ones, self-organized tours are rapidly gaining popularity
among the youth. During a self-organized tour, arrangements of sightseeing can be flexible and changeable depending on our own interests. Thus, we can spend the time freely and heard for our favorite destinations directly, only in which way can we fully expose ourselves to the local cultures and customs. Nevertheless, self-arranged tour can bring about great inconvenience in the arrangements of transportation and accommodation. At the same time, the discounts for package tour may not be available. Also, lack of safety guarantees makes it easy to get hurt. In my opinion, the advantages of self-organized tour seem to outweigh its disadvantages. Thus I suppose that self-organized tour can’t be a wiser choice to enjoy ourselves to the fullest.
