Here are four simple, healthy and, dare we say, fun ways to help you slim down and stay healthy. Have your cake …for breakfast Aside from being depressing, the way to __41__ weight loss isn‘t by feeling deprived. Scientists say that people who started off the day with a __42__ felt fuller and more satisfied, and that led to their sticking with the program as the day went on. Being hungry is no way to start your day, so __43__ up with protein and a mouthful of something sweet. And most of all, enjoy! Sleep your way to weight loss Dr. Andrew Calvin, one expert of Mayo Clinic study, is quoted as saying, ―If individuals are seeking to maintain a healthy weight or to lose weight, they should seek to get enough sleep on a __44__ basis.‖ If you find it tricky to wind down at night, turn off the __45__ and engage in relaxing activities, like taking a bath or listening to __46__ music. Journal to drop pounds The best __47__ for a dieter? Pen and paper! Women who wrote down everything they ate lost more weight than those who didn‘t track their food intake. Journaling makes you accountable and more aware of what you‘re eating, so it makes sense that it‘ll keep you from __48__ chewing if you aren‘t actually hungry. Even a tiny bit of exercise helps your health Even 20 to 30 minutes of physical activity most days of the weeks (broken up into smaller chunks is fine) reduces your risk for all sorts of physical ills. And even 20 minutes a week can improve your mood. That really stuck with me. It‘s easy to criticize ourselves or burn out if we make goals that are __49__ hard to achieve, but walking a few times a week is __50__ – and meaningful, too. III. Reading Comprehension Section A Directions: For each blank in the following passages there are four words or phrases marked A, B, C and D. Fill in each blank with the word or phrase that best fits the context. For many people today, reading is no longer relaxation. To keep up their work they must read letters, reports, trade publications, interoffice communications, not to mention newspapers and magazines; a never-ending flood of words. In getting a job advancing, the ability to read and comprehend __51__ can mean the difference between success and failure. Yet the unfortunate fact is that most of us are __52__ readers. Most of us develop poor reading habits at an early age, and never __53__ them. The main shortage lies in the actual stuff of language itself – words. Taken individually, words have little__54__ until they are strung together into phrases, sentences and paragraphs. Unfortunately, __55__, the untrained reader does not read groups of words. He laboriously read one word at a time, often regressing to __56__ words or passages. Regression, the tendency to look back over what you have just read, is a common __57__ habit in reading. Another bad habit which __58__ the speed of reading is vocalization – sounding each word either __59__ or


mentally as one reads. To overcome these bad habits, some reading clinics use a device called an accelerator, which moves a bar (or curtain) down the page at a predetermined speed. The bar is set a slightly __60__ rate than the reader finds comfortable, in order to ―__61__‖ him. The accelerator forces the reader to read fast, making word-by-word reading, regression and sub-vocalization, practically __62__. At first comprehension is __63__ speed. But when you learn to read ideas and concepts, you will not only read faster, but your comprehension will improve. Many people have found their reading skill __64__ improved after some training. Take Charles Au, a business manager, for instance, his reading rate was a reasonably good 172 words a minute before the training, now it is an excellent 1,378 words a minute. He is delighted that now he can go through a lot more reading material in a(n) __65__ period of time. 51. 52. 53. 54. 55. 56. 57. 58. 59. 60. 61. 62. 63. 64. 65. A. quickly A. casual A. acquire A. formation A. however A. recite A. horrible A. achieves A. orally A. better A. distract A. demanding A. applied to A. dramatically A. indefinite B. silently B. curious B. cultivate B. meaning B. moreover B. reread B. incurable B. gains B. physically B. faster B. embarrass B. impossible B. matched with B. hardly B. lengthy C. thoroughly C. efficient C. kick C. pronunciation C. somehow C. reuse C. social C. measures C. quietly C. lower C. interest C. reasonable C. sacrificed for C. slightly C. limited D. vaguely D. poor D. practice D. transformation D. therefore D. rewrite D. viewing D. reduces D. repeatedly D. steadier D. stretch D. useful D. substituted for D. subconsciously D. set

Section B Directions: Read the following three passages. Each passage is followed by several questions or unfinished statements. For each of them there are four choices marked A, B, C and D. Choose the one that fits best according to the information given in the passage you have just read. (A) Jane Austen was born in the English countryside more than 200 years ago. She lived a simple life. She seldom travelled. She never married and she died from illness when she was only 41. However, people all over the world remember her. Why? It is because Jane Austen is the author of some of the best-loved novels in the English language. These novels include Emma, Pride and Prejudice, Sense and Sensibility and Persuasion. Jane completed her last novel Persuasion in 1816, but it was not published until after her death. Persuasion is partly based on Jane‘s naval brother. Anne, the daughter of Sir Walter Elliot, falls in love with Captain Wentworth, a person of a lower social position. But she breaks off the engagement when persuaded by her friend Lady Russell that such a match is unworthy. The breakup produces in Anne a deep and long-lasting regret. Eight years later, Wentworth returns from sea a rich and successful captain. He finds Anne‘s family


on the edge of financial ruin. Anne and the captain rediscover their love and get married. Jane Austen once compared her writing to painting on a little bit of ivory(象牙), two inches square. Readers of Persuasion will see that neither her skill of delicate, ironic(讽刺的) observations on social custom, love, and marriage nor her ability to apply a sharp focus to English manners and morals has abandoned her in her final finished work. Persuasion has produced three film adaptations: a 1995 version starring Amanda Root and Ciaran Hinds, a 2007 TV miniseries with Sally Hawkins and Rupert Penry-Jones, and a 1971 miniseries with Ann Firbank and Bryan Marshall. People who are interested in Jane Austen can still visit many of the places she visited and lived. These places include the village of Steventon, although her family house is now gone. Many of the places Jane visited in Bath are still there. You can visit Jane Austen‘s home in Chawton, where she did her best writing, and Winchester, where she died. 66. What is the theme of Persuasion? A. Never regret what you‘ve chosen. B. True love lasts forever. C. Be matched for marriage. D. Love waits for no man. 67. Which of the following CANNOT describe Jane‘s writing style? A. Her application of symbolism. B. Her delicate observations. C. Her focus on manners and morals. D. Her use of irony. 68. Which of the following about Jane Austen is TRUE? A. Her family house is now in the village of Steventon. B. Many of the places she visited in Bath are still available. C. The latest film adaptation of Persuasion was produced in 1995. D. Her last novel Persuasion is considered her most successful one. 69. The article mainly talks about _______. A. Jane Austen‘s unique writing style B. the original residence of Jane Austen C. Jane Austen‘s last novel: Persuasion D. the popularity of Jane Austen‘s novels


( B) GETTING A GRANT Who pays? The local education authority (LEA) for the area in which the student is living. Who can get this money? Anyone who gets a place on a first degree course, although a student who has already attended a course of advanced further education may not. Students must also have been resident in the UK for at least three years, which can exclude some students from overseas. SPECIAL CASES If a student has worked before going to college? A student who is 26 or more before the course starts and who has worked for at least three of the previous six years will get extra money – ? 155 a year if 26, increasing to a maximum of ? 615 at 29 or more. If a student is handicapped? LEAs will give up to ? 500 to help meet extra expenses – such as buying a tape recorder for a blind student, extra heating or special food. Banking? Most of the big banks offer special services to students who open accounts (in the hope that they will stay with the bank when they become rich officials). A student won‘t usually have to pay bank charges as long as the account stays in credit. Some banks allow students to overdraw by ? 100 or so, and still don‘t make charges (though they do charge interest). 70. The phrase ―a grant‖ in the first line most probably means _____. A. bank interest B. a credit card C. an education fee D. financial aid 71. A student from Japan who has been studying in England for a year and intends to go to college in a few months will _____. A. be unable to get money from any LEA B. get money if taking a first degree course C. get money from LEA when finishing his course D. have to open a bank account before getting money 72. A 31-year-old nurse wishes to qualify as a doctor at a university. She has worked since she was 25. How much extra money will she get a year? A. None. B. ? 155. C. ? 615. D. ? 515. 73. A big bank offers a new student special services because _____. A. they need student accounts badly B. they charge students extra interest C. they know he can get money regularly D. they hope he‘ll be a potential customer (C) Publicity offers several benefits. There are not costs for message time or space. An ad in prime-time television may cost $250,000 to $5,000,000 or more per minute, whereas a five-minute report on a network newscast would not cost anything. Publicity reaches a mass audience within a short time and new products or company policies are widely known.


Credibility about messages is high, because they are reported in independent media. A newspaper review of a movie has more believability than an ad in the same paper, because the reader associates independence with objectivity. Similarly, people are more likely to pay attention to news reports than to ads. For example, Women’s Wear Daily has both fashion reports and advertisements. Readers spend time reading the stories, but they skim through the ads. Furthermore, there may be 10 commercials during a half-hour television program or hundreds of ads in a magazine. Feature stories are much fewer in number and stand out clearly. Publicity also has some significant limitations. A firm has little control over messages, their timing, their placement, or their coverage by a given medium. It may issue detailed news releases and find only portions mentioned by the media, and media have the ability to be much more critical than a firm would like. For example, in 1982, Procter & Gamble faced a massive publicity problem over the meaning of its 123-year-old company logo. To fight this negative publicity, the firm had a spokesperson appear on Good Morning America to disprove the rumor (谣言). The false rumors were temporarily put to rest. However, in 1985, publicity became so troublemaking that Procter & Gamble decided to remove the logo from its products. A firm may want publicity during certain periods, such as when a new product is introduced or new store opened, but the media may not cover the introduction or opening until after the time it would aid the firm. Similarly, media determine the placement of a story; it may follow a report on crime or sports. Finally, the media decide whether to cover a story at all and the amount of coverage to be devoted to it. 74. All of the following advantages of publicity are mentioned EXCEPT _____. A. time saving B. attentiveness C. credibility D. profitability 75. Compared with ad, news report or featuring stories are more _____. A. believable B. clear C. dependent D. subjective 76. The example of ―Procter & Gamble‖ is given to show _____. A. the efficient way of disproving rumors B. the importance of a spokesperson C. the interaction between firms and media D. the negative effect of publicity 77. What‘s the author‘s attitude towards publicity? A. doubtful B. objective C. passive D. supportive Section C Directions: Read the passage carefully. Then answer the questions or complete the statements in the fewest possible words. The motor vehicle has killed and disabled more people in its brief history than any bomb or weapon ever invented. Much of the blood on the street flows essentially from uncivil behavior of drivers who refuse to respect the legal or moral rights of others. So the massacre (大屠杀) on the road may be regarded as a social problem. In fact, the enemies of society on wheels are rather harmless people just ordinary people acting carelessly, you might say. But it is a principle both of law and common morality that carelessness is no excuse when one‘s actions could bring death or damages to others. A minority of the killers go even beyond carelessness to total negligence. Researchers have estimated that as many as 80 percent of all automobile accidents can be


connected with psychological condition of the driver. Emotional upsets can affect drivers‘ reactions, slow their judgment, and blind them to dangers that might otherwise be evident. The experts warn that it is vital for every driver to make a conscious effort to keep one‘s emotions under control. Yet the irresponsibility that accounts for much of the problem is not limited to drivers. Street walkers regularly ignore traffic regulations. They are at fault in most vehicle walker accidents; and many cyclists even believe that they are not subject to the basic rules of the road. In the past few years, safety standards for vehicle have been raised both at the point of manufacture and through periodic road-worthiness inspections. In addition, speed limits have been lowered. Due to these measures, the accident rate has decreased. But the accident experts still worry because there has been little or no improvement in the way drivers behave. The only real and lasting solution, say the experts, is to convince people that driving is a skilled task requiring constant care and concentration. Those who fail to do all these things present a threat to those with whom they share the road. (Note: Answer the questions or complete the statements in NO MORE THAN TEN WORDS.) 78. Why road killers can‘t be excused? Because __________. 79. In order to avoid automobile accidents, the experts suggest drivers should __________. 80. Besides drivers, who should also be blamed for most roads accidents? 81. The accident rate has decreased in the past few years because of __________.

黄浦区 2013 学年度第一学期高三年级期终调研测试 英 语 试 卷 I. Listening Comprehension Section A Directions: In Section A, you will hear ten short conversations between two speakers. At the end of each conversation, a question will be asked about what was said. The conversations and the questions will be spoken only once. After you hear a conversation and the question about it, read the four possible answers on your paper, and decide which one is the best answer to the question you have heard. 1. W: What‘s the time for departure? M: 5:30.That only leaves us 45 minutes to go through the customs and check our luggage. Q: At what time did this conversation take place? 2. M: Oh, Mum! I‘m starving, I can‘t walk any farther. W: Let‘s go to the restaurant across the street and get something to eat. Q: Where are the two people? 3. W: John, what are you doing on your computer? Don‘t you remember your promise? M: This is not a game. It‘s only a crossword puzzle that helps increase my vocabulary. Q: What is the probable relationship between the two speakers? 4. M: Hey, if you can‘t enjoy the music at a sensible volume, why not use earphones? I‘m preparing for the speech contest. W: Oh, sorry. I didn‘t realize I‘d been bothering you all this time. Q: What is the woman probably doing? 5. W: Would you please come to my office at 5 o‘clock this afternoon? M: Can I meet you tomorrow? My son will be home from school at 5:30. And I must finish this report before then. Q: What is the man going to do first? 6. M: Hi, Jenny! Have you talked to Mr. Wright about the new sports program? W: Well, I contacted his office half an hour ago, and his secretary said he was out for lunch till 2:00. Q: What does the woman mean? 7. W: Do you have the conference schedule with you?

11 / 9

Q: What does the woman imply? Section B Directions: In Section B, you will hear two short passages, and you will be asked three questions on each of the passages. The passages will be read twice, but the questions will be spoken only once. When you hear a question, read the four possible answers on your paper and decide which one would be the best answer to the question you have heard. Questions 11 through 13 are based on the following passage. Deep Springs is an American college. It is an unusual college. It is high in the White Mountains in California, not in a college town. The campus is a collection of old buildings, with no beautiful classrooms. The only college-like thing about Deep Springs is its library. Students can study from the 18,000 books 24 hours a day. The library is never crowded as there are only 24 well-qualified male students at the college. In addition, there are only five full-time professors. These teachers believe in the idea of this college. They need to believe in it! They do not get much money. In fact, their salaries are only about $9,000 a year plus room and meals. The school gives the young teachers as well as the students something more important than money. ―There is no place like Deep Springs,‖ says a second-year student from New York State. ―Most colleges today are much the same, but Deep Springs is not afraid to be different.‖ He says that students at his college are in a situation quite unlike in other schools. Students are there to learn, and they cannot run away from problems. There is no place to escape to! Besides talking to each other or their teachers, Deep Springs‘ students may go to the library or go for a walk in the desert since there is not even a television set on campus. 11. What do we learn about Deep Springs College from the passage? 12. What is the total number of students at Deep Springs College? 13. What really makes Deep Springs different from most colleges? Questions 14 through 16 are based on the following passage. Many people suffer from some form of extreme anxiety. Some experience occasional attacks of panic for almost no reason. Others go around in a state of continual uneasiness. How do we control anxiety? The best way is to take drugs which help patients manage their anxiety. Patients who take these drugs say that they are able to work, to sleep and to go to places they feared to visit before. But the effects of the drugs on the human body, especially on the nervous system have not been known for a long time. Scientists have started a series of studies to identify the effects of the drugs on the brain and have gained some insight into the costs and benefits of the anti-anxiety drugs. They are valuable because they can reduce the effects of expected failure, frustration and disappointment. But their value demands a price. Two effects of the drugs are obviously harmful. First, they weaken a person‘s ability to react to changes; second, they fail to help a person deal with unexpected troubles. It is fairly sure that people will meet with problems they have never expected, so these harmful effects may make the price of anti-anxiety drugs too high. 14. According to the speaker, what is the best way to manage anxiety? 15. What does the speaker think of the anti-anxiety drugs?

12 / 9

16. What harmful effect do the anti-anxiety drugs have? Section C Directions: In Section C, you will hear two longer conversations. The conversations will be read twice. After you hear each conversation, you are required to fill in the numbered blanks with the information you have heard. Write your answers on your answer sheet.

Blanks 17 through 20 are based on the following conversation. M: W: M: W: M: W: M: W: M: W: M: W: I‘d like to send this parcel to Australia. OK. I have to check the weight first. Could you put it on the scales? Sure. That‘s 850 grams. The cost depends on how you would like to send it. I see. Suppose airmail is more expensive. That‘s right. Sending it by airmail will cost twelve dollars and by ordinary mail eight dollars. How long will it take to get there? Airmail takes four or five days and ordinary mail about two weeks. In that case, I‘ll send it by airmail. And I‘d like to send it as a registered parcel. No problem. That‘s one dollar extra. Thank you very much. Here‘s the money. Here‘s your receipt. Goodbye.

Complete the form. Write ONE WORD for each answer. Blanks 21 through 24 are based on the following conversation. M: Would you like to see the menu, or would you care to order our special complete dinner of the day? W: What‘s the special today? M: Leg of lamb. And I highly recommend it.
