Last night?s meteor(流星) shower left many people in the community dissatisfied and demanding answers. According to Gabe Rothsclild, Emerald Valley?s mayor,people gathered in the suburbs of the city, carrying heavy telescopes,expecting to watch the brightly burning meteors passing through the sky. What they found instead was a sky so brightened by the city?s lights that it darkened the light of the meteors passing overhead. “My family was so frustrated,” admitted town resident Duane Cosby, “We wanted to make this an unforgettable family outing,but it turned out to be a huge disappointments. ” Astronomers—scientists who study stars and planets—-have been complaining about this problem for decades. They say that light pollution prevents them from seeing objects in the sky that they could see quite easily in the past. They call on people and the government to take measures to fight against it.

There is yet a population besides professional and amateur star observers that suffers even more from light pollution. This population consists of birds,bats frogs,snakes,etc. For example,outdoor lighting severely affects migrating(迁徙的)birds. According to the International Dark-Sky Association. “100 million birds a year throughout North America die in crashes with lighted buildings and towers. ” Countless more animals casualties(伤亡)result from the use of artificial lighting. Clearly,people enjoy the benefits of lighting their evenings,but some scientists think it can be harmful for humans,too. They worry that exposure to light while sleeping can increase person?s chances of getting cancer. Emerald Valley is only one community that is becoming aware of the negative effects of hight pollution. For years,Flagstaff,Arizona,has enforced lighting regulations in its city in order to assist astronomers at the Lowell Observatory. Similar efforts have been made worldwide,and a movement is underway to remind us to turn off lights when we are not using them,so that other creatures can share the night. 41.It happened last night that A.the city?s lights affected the meteor watching noticed C. the city light show attracted many people 42.

I still remember that chilly December day, sitting in science class. I?d finished a worksheet early and picked up a TIME for Kids magazine. A piece of news caught my eye: NASA was holding an essay contest to name its Mars rover(火星探测器).Before I even knew anything else about it, a single word flooded my 11-year-old mind, Curiosity. I couldn?t want for the bell to ring so I could get started on my essay. That afternoon, I raced home, sat down at the computer, and typed until my fingers ached. “Curiosity is an everlasting flame that burns in everyone’s mind...” Five months later, my mom received a phone call, and immediately, a wide smile spread across her face. On August 5,2012,at 10:31 p.m, the rover named Curiosity touched down safely on the surface of Mars, and I was honored to have a front-row seat in NASA. Curiosity is such an important part of who I am. I have always been fascinated by the stars, the planets, the sky and the universe. I remember as a little girl, my grandmother and I would sit together in the backyard for hours. She?d tell me stories and point out the stars, Grandma lived in China, thousands of miles away from my home in Kansas, but the stars kept us together even when we were apart. They were always there, yet there was so much I didn?t know about them. That?s what I love so much about space. People often ask me why we go to faraway places like Mares. My answer is simple because we?re curious. We human beings do not just hole up in one place. We are constantly wondering and trying to find out what?s over the hill and beyond the horizon. 56.How did Clara get the new about the essay contest?( no more than 10 words) 57.Why did Clara have a front-row seat in NASA?( no more than 10 words) 58.What does Clara remember about the time spent with Grandma?( no more than 15 words)

59.What does the underlined phrase “hole up” mean?(1 word) 60.In your opinion, why is curiosity important?( no more than 20 words)

上海卷 A
For some people, music is no fun at all. About four percent of the population is what scientists call “amusic.” People who are amusic are born without the ability to recognize or reproduce musical notes (音调). Amusic people often cannot tell the difference between two songs. Amusics can only hear the difference between two notes if they are very far apart on the musical scale. As a result, songs sound like noise to an amusic. Many amusics compare the sound of music to pieces of metal hitting each other. Life can be hard for amusics. Their inability to enjoy music set them apart from others. It can be difficult for other people to identify with their condition. In fact, most people cannot begin to grasp what it feels like to be amusic. Just going to a restaurant or a shopping mall can be uncomfortable or even painful. That is why many amusics intentionally stay away from places where there is music. However, this can result in withdrawal and social isolation. “I used to hate parties,” says Margaret, a seventy-year-old woman who only recently discovered that she was amusic. By studying people like Margaret, scientists are finally learning how to identify this unusual condition. Scientists say that the brains of amusics are different from the brains of people who can appreciate music. The difference is complex, and it doesn?t involve defective hearing. Amusics can understand other nonmusical sounds well. They also have no problems understanding ordinary speech. Scientists compare amusics to people who just can?t see certain colors. Many amusics are happy when their condition is finally diagnosed (诊断). For years, Margaret felt embarrassed about her problem with music. Now she knows that she is not alone. There is a name for her condition. That makes it easier for her to explain. “When people invite me to a concert, I just say, ?No thanks, I?m amusic,?” says Margaret. “I just wish I had learned to say that when I was seventeen and not seventy.” 65. Which of the following is true of amusics? A. Listening to music is far from enjoyable for them. B. They love places where they are likely to hear music. C. They can easily tell two different songs apart.D. Their situation is well understood by musicians. 66. According to paragraph 3, a person with “defective hearing” is probably one who __________.

A. dislikes listening to speeches C. has a hearing problem

B. can hear anything nonmusical D. lacks a complex hearing system

67. In the last paragraph, Margaret expressed her wish that __________. A. her problem with music had been diagnosed earlier B. she were seventeen years old rather than seventy C. her problem could be easily explained D. she were able to meet other amusics 68. What is the passage mainly concerned with? A. Amusics? strange behaviours. C. Musical talent and brain structure. B. Some people?s inability to enjoy music. D. Identification and treatment of amusics.

Here are some findings and expert advice. 1.How many times did you brush your teeth yesterday? Finding:A full 33% of seniors brush their teeth only once a day. Step: Remove the 300 types of bacteria in your mouth each morning with a battery-operated toothbrush. Brush gently for 2 minutes, at least twice a day. 2.How many times did you wash your hands or bathe yesterday? Finding:Seniors, on average, bathe fewer than 3 days a week. And nearly 30%wash their hands only 4 times a day-half of the number doctors recommend. Step: We touch our faces around 3,000 times a day-often inviting germs(病菌)to enter our mouth, nose, and eyes. Use toilet paper to avoid touching the door handle. And, most important, wash your hands often with

hot running water and soap for 20 seconds. 3. How often do you think about fighting germs? Finding:Seniors are not fighting germs as well as they should. Step:Be aware of germs. Do you know it is not your toilet but your kitchen sponge(海绵)that can carry more germs than anything else? To kill these germs, keep your sponge in the microwave for 10 seconds. 56.What is found out American seniors? A. Most of then have good habits. B. Nearly 30%of then bathe three days a week . C.

A kitchen sponge can carry more germs than a toilet . D. We should wash our hands before touching a door handle . 59. The text probably comes from A. a guide book . C. a book review B Using too much water or throwing rubbish into our rivers are clear ways that humans can put our water supply in danger ,but we also affect our water supply in less obvious ways .You may wonder how paving(铺 砌) a road can lead to less useable fresh water. A major part of the water we use every day is groundwater. Groundwater does not come from lakes or rivers .It come from underground. The more roads and parking lots we pave, the less water can flow into the ground to become groundwater. Human activity is not responsible for all water shortages(短缺).

To start with ,use the same glass for your drinking water all day. Wash it only once a day. Run your dishwasher (洗碗机)only when it is full. Help your parents fix any leaks in your home.

第三部分 阅读理解 A When I was 12, all I wanted was a signet (图章) ring. They were the "in" thing and it seemed every girl except me had one. On my 13th birthday, my Mum gave me a signet ring with my initials(姓名首字母) carved into it. I was in heaven. What made it even more special was that it was about the only thing that wasn't being "replaced". We'd

been burnt out in fires that swept through our area earlier that year and had lost everything—so most of the " new" stuff (东西) we got was really just to replace what we'd lost. But not my ring. My ring was new. Then, only one month later, I lost it. I took it off before bed and it was missing in the morning. I was sad and searched everywhere for it. But it seemed to have disappeared. Eventually, I gave up and stopped looking for it. And two years later, we sold the house and moved away. Years passed, and a couple of moves later, I was visiting my parents' when Mum told me that she had something for me. It wasn't my birthday, nor was it Easter or Christmas or any other gift-giving occasion. Mum noticed my questioning look. " You'll recognize this one," she said, smiling. Then she handed me a small ring box. I took it from her and opened it to find my beautiful signet ring inside. The family who had bought our house 13 years earlier had recently decided to do some redecorations, which included replacing the carpets. When they pulled the carpet up in my old bedroom, they found the ring. As it had my initials carved into it, they realized who owned the ring. They'd had it professionally cleaned up by a jeweler before sending it to my mother. And it still fits me. 56.The underlined word "in" in the first paragraph probably means "_____". A. fashionable B. available C. practical D. renewable

57.When she got the ring back, the writer was about _____. A. 13 years old B. 15 years old C. 26 years old D. 28 years old

58.Which of the following is TRUE according to the passage? A.The writer's family moved several times. B. The writer never stopped looking for her ring. C. The writer's ring was cleaned up by the new house owner. D.The writer lost her ring in the morning when she took it off. 59.What would be the best title for the passage? A. My New Ring B. Lost and Found C. Lost and Replaced B Your glasses may someday replace your smartphone, and some New Yorkers are ready for the switch. Some in the city can't wait to try them on and use the maps and GPS that the futuristic eyewear is likely to include. D. An Expensive Ring

" I'd use it if I were hanging out with friends at 3 a. m. and going to the bar and wanted to see what was open," said Walter Choo, 40, of Fort Greene. The smartphone-like glasses will likely come out this year and cost between $250 and $600, the Times said, possibly including a variation of augmented( 增强的 ) reality, a technology already available on smartphones and tablets (平板电脑) that overlays information onto the screen about one's surroundings. So, for example, if you were walking down a street, indicators would pop up showing you the nearest coffee shop or directions could be plotted out and come into view right on the sidewalk in front of you. " As far as a mainstream consumer product, this just isn't something anybody needs," said Sam Biddle, who writes for Gizmodo.com. " We're accustomed to having one thing in our pocket to do all these things," he added, "and the average consumer isn't gonna be able to afford another device (装置) that's hundreds and hundreds of dollars. " 9 to5 Google publisher Seth Weintraub, who has been reporting on the smartphone-like glasses since late last year, said he is confident that this type of wearable device will eventually be as common as smartphones. "It's just like smartphones 10 years ago," Weintraub said. "A few people started getting emails on their phones, and people thought that was crazy. Same kind of thing. We see people bending their heads to look at their smartphones, and it's unnatural," he said. " There's gonna be improvements to that, and this a step there. " 60.One of the possible functions of the smartphone-like glasses is to ____. A.program the opening hours of a bar C. provide information about your surroundings B. supply you with a picture of the future D. update the maps and GPS in your smartphones

61.The underlined phrase "pop up" in the third paragraph probably means " ____". A. develop rapidly C. appear immediately B. get round quickly D. go over automatically

62. According to Sam Biddle, the smartphone-like glasses are ____. A. necessary for teenagers C. available to people worldwide B. attractive to New Yorkers D. expensive for average consumers

63. We can learn from the last two paragraphs that the smartphone-like glasses ____. A. may have a potential market B. are as common as smartphones

C. are popular among young adults

D. will be improved by a new technology

阅读下列短文,从每题所给的 A、B、C 和 D 项中,选出最佳选项,并在答题卡上将该项涂黑。 A Imagination and fantasy can play an important role in achieving the things we fear. Children know this very well. Fred Epstein, in his book If I Make It to Five, tells a story he heard from one of friends about Tom, a four-year-old boy with a cancer in his back bone. He came through several operations and a lot of pain by mastering his imagination. Tom loved to pretend, and he particularly loved to play superheroes. Dr. Epstein explained that it was actually a brilliant way for his young mind to handle the terrifying and painful life he led. The day before his third trip to the operating room, Tom was terribly afraid. “Maybe I could go as Superman,” he whispered to his mom. Hearing this, the mother hesitated for a while. She had avoided buying the expensive costume (戏装), but finally she agreed. The next day Tom appeared as the powerful Superman, showing off through the hospital halls and coolly waving his hand to the people greeting him along the way. And Tom, with the strength of his fantasy, successfully made it through the operation. The power of imagination need not be reserved for children only. we all have the power to use our fantasies to attempt things we never thought possible, to go through those things that seem impossible, and to achieve what we never believed we could. Just as Dr. Epstein puts it, “If you can dream it, you can do it.” It doesn?t mean that you should dress as a superhero for your next job interview. But, next time you are tested in a way that seems impossible, imagine what it would take to overcome it. Become the person you need to become to win over your challenge and do it in your mind first. So, let your imagination run wild, and dare to dream. 26. What do we know about Tom? A. He was seriously ill C. He was crazy about magic. 27. What can be inferred about Tom?s mother? A. She was a rich lady. B. She refused Tom?s request. B. He was a dishonest boy. D. He was Dr. Epstein?s patient.

C. She wanted Tom to be a superhero. 28. When Tom went for the third operation, he ______. A. pretended to be painful C. appeared in poor spirits 29. In the last paragraph, you are advised ______. A. to go through some difficult tests C. to become a powerful person in your mind 30. What is the purpose of the passage? A. To tell us an interesting story. C. To advise us to care about children. B

D. She wanted to get Tom through the pain.

B. acted like a superhero D. argued with his mother

B. to wake up from your wild dreams D. to wear expensive clothes for job interviews

B. To help us make right decisions. D. To encourage us to use our imagination.

Some people think that success is only for those with talent or those who grow up in the right family, and others believe that success mostly comes down to luck. I?m not going to say luck, talent, and circumstances don?t come into play because they do. Some people are born into the right family while others are born with great intelligence, and that?s just the reality of how life is. However, to succeed in life, one first needs to set a goal and then gradually make it more practical. And, in addition to that, in order to get really good at something, one needs to spend at least 10,000 hours studying and practicing. To become great at certain things, it?ll require even more time, time that most people won?t put in. This is a big reason why many successful people advise you to do something you love. If you don?t enjoy what you do, it is going to feel like unbearable pain and will likely make you quit well before you ever become good at it. When you see people exhibiting some great skills or having achieved great success, you know that they have put in a huge part of their life to get there at a huge cost. It?s sometimes easy to think they got lucky or they were born with some rare talent, but thinking that way does you no good, and there?s a huge chance that you?re wrong anyway. Whatever you do, if you want to become great at it, you need to work day in and day out, almost to the point of addiction, and over a long period of time. If you?re not willing to put in the time and work, don?t

expect to receive any rewards. Consistent, hard work won?t guarantee you the level of success you may want, but it will guarantee that you will become really good at whatever it is you put all that work into. 31. Paragraph 1 mainly talks about ______. A. the reasons for success C. the standards of success B. the meaning of success D. the importance of success

32. In Paragraph 2, the underlined word that refers to ______. A. being good at something C. putting in more time B. setting a practical goal D. succeeding in life

33. Successful people suggest doing what one loves because ______. A. work makes one feel pain C. one gives up his work easily 34. What can we infer from Paragraph 4? A. Successful people like to show their great skills. talent. C. People need to achieve success at the cost of life. success. 35. What is the main theme of the passage? A. Having a goal is vital to success. C. One cannot succeed without time and practice. success. B. Being good is different from being great. D. Luck, talent and family help to achieve D. It helps to think that luck or talent leads to B. People sometimes succeed without luck or B. one tends to enjoy his work D. it takes a lot of time to succeed

A Some years ago, writing in my diary used to be a usual activity. I would return from school and spend the expected half hour recording the day?s events, feelings, and impressions in my little blue diary. I did not really need to express my emotions by way of words, but I gained a certain satisfaction from seeing my experiences forever recorded on paper. After all, isn?t accumulating memories a way of preserving the past? When I was thirteen years old, I went on a long journey on foot in a great valley, well-equipped with pens, a diary, and a camera. During the trip, I was busy recording every incident, name and place I came

across. I felt proud to be spending my time productively, dutifully preserving for future generations a detailed description of my travels. On my last night there, I wandered out of my tent, diary in hand. The sky was clear and lit by the glare of the moon, and the walls of the valley looked threatening behind their screen of shadows. I automatically took out my pen…. At that point, I understood that nothing I wrote could ever match or replace the few seconds I allowed myself to experience the dramatic beauty of the valley. All I remembered of the previous few days were the dull characterizations I had set down in my diary. Now, I only write in my diary when I need to write down a special thought or feeling. I still love to record ideas and quotations that strike me in books, or observations that are particularly meaningful. I take pictures, but not very often—only of objects I find really beautiful. I?m no longer blindly satisfied with having something to remember when I grow old. I realize that life will simply pass me by if I stay behind the camera, busy preserving the present so as to live it in the future. I don?t want to wake up one day and have nothing but a pile of pictures and notes. Maybe I won?t have as many exact representations of people and places; maybe I?ll forget certain facts, but at least the experiences will always remain inside me. I don?t live to make memories—I just live, and the memories form themselves. 51.Before the age of thirteen, the author regarded keeping a diary as a way of ______. A. observing her school routine C. impressing her classmates B. expressing her satisfaction D. preserving her history

52.What caused a change in the author?s understanding of keeping a diary? A. A dull night on the journey. C. A striking quotation from a book. 53.What does the author put in her diary now? A. Notes and beautiful pictures. C. Detailed accounts of daily activities. B. Special thoughts and feelings. D. Descriptions of unforgettable events. B. The beauty of the great valley. D. Her concerns for future generations.

54.The author comes to realize that to live a meaningful life is ______. A. to experience it C. to make memories B. to live the present in the future D. to give accurate representations of it

B Mothers and daughters go through so much—yet when was the last time a mother and daughter sat down to write a book together about it all? Perri Klass and her mother, Sheila Solomon Klass, both gifted professional writers, prove to be ideal co-writers as they examine their decades of motherhood, daughterhood, and the wonderful ways their lives have overlapped (重叠). Perri notes with amazement how closely her own life has mirrored her mother?s: both have full-time careers; both have published books, articles, and stories; each has three children; they both love to read. They also love to travel—in fact, they often take trips together. But in truth, the harder they look at their lives, the more they acknowledge their big differences in circumstance and basic nature. A child of the Depression (大萧条), Sheila was raised in Brooklyn by parents who considered education a luxury for girls. Starting with her college education, she has fought for everything she?s ever accomplished. Perri, on the other hand, grew up privileged in the New Jersey suburbs of the 1960s and 1970s. For Sheila, wasting time or money is a crime, and luxury is unthinkable while Perri enjoys the occasional small luxury, but has not been successful at trying to persuade her mother into enjoying even the tiniest thing she likes. Each writing in her own unmistakable voice, Perri and Sheila take turns exploring the joys and pains, the love and bitterness, the minor troubles and lasting respect that have always bonded them together. Sheila describes the adventure of giving birth to Perri in a tiny town in Trinidad where her husband was doing research fieldwork. Perri admits that she can?t sort out all the mess in the households, even though she knows it drives her mother crazy. Together they compare thoughts on bringing up children and working, admit long-hidden sorrows, and enjoy precious memories. Looking deep into the lives they have lived separately and together, Perri and Sheila tell their mother-daughter story with honesty, humor, enthusiasm, and admiration for each other. A written account in two voices, Every Mother Is a Daughter is a duet(二重奏) that produces a deep, strong sound with the experiences that all mothers and daughters will recognize. 55.Why does Perri think that her own life has mirrored her mother?s? A. They both have gone through difficult times. B. They have strong emotional ties with each other. C. They have the same joys and pains, and love and bitterness.

D. They both have experiences as daughter, mother and writer. 56.The word “luxury” in Paragraph 3 means ______. A. something rare but not pleasant C. something expensive but not necessary 57.What is Paragraph 4 mainly about? A. The content of the book. C. The influence of the book. 58.How are women?s lives explored in this book? A. In a musical form. C. With unique writing skills. B. Through field research. D. From different points of view. B. The purpose of the book. D. The writing style of the book. B. something that cannot be imagined D. something that can only be enjoyed by boys

A Planning a visit to the UK? Here we help with ways to cut your costs. AVOID BIG EVENTS Big sporting events, concerts and exhibitions can increase the cost of

accommodation and make it harder to find a room. A standard double room at the Thistle Brighton on the final Friday of the Brighton Comedy Festival (19 Oct.) cost ? 169.15 at Booking.com. A week later, the same room cost ? 118.15. If you can be flexible and want to know dates to avoid—or you?re looking for a big event to pass your time—check out sites such as Whatsonwhen.com, which allow you to search for events in the UK by city, date and category. STAYAWAY FROM THE STATION If traveling to your destination by train, you may want to find a good base close to the station, but you could end up paying more for the sake of convenience at the start of your holiday. Don?t be too choosy about the part of town you stay in. Booking two months in advance, the cheapest room at Travelodge?s Central Euston hotel in London for Saturday 22 September was ?95.95. A room just a tube journey away at its Covent Garden hotel was ? 75.75. And at Farringdon, a double room cost just ? 62.95. LOOK AFTER YOURSELF Really central hotels in cities such as London, Edinburgh and Cardiff

can cost a fortune, especially at weekends and during big events. As an alternative consider checking into a self-catering flat with its own kitchen. Often these flats are hidden away on the top floors of city centre buildings. A great example is the historic O?Neill Flat on Edinburgh?s Royal Mile, available for ?420 for five days in late September, with room for four adults. GET ON A BIKE London?s ?Boris bikes? have attracted the most attention, but other cities also have similar programmes that let you rent a bicycle and explore at your own pace, saving you on public transport or car parking costs. Among the smaller cities with their own programmes are Newcastle (casual members pay around ? 1.50 for two hours) and Cardiff (free for up to 30 minutes, or ? 5 per day). (358 words) 56. The Brighton Comedy Festival is mentioned mainly to show big events may __________. A. help travelers pass time C. allow travelers to make flexible plans B. attract lots of travelers to the UK D. cause travelers to pay more for accommodation

57. “Farringdon” in Paragraph 5 is most probably __________. A. a hotel away from the train station C. an ideal holiday destination B. the tube line to Covent Garden D. the name of a travel agency

I got to know Dorothy in the early 1980s, when I was teaching Early Childhood Development through a program with Union College in Barbourville, Kentucky. The job responsibilities

required occasional visits to the classroom of each teacher in the program. Dorothy stands out in my memory as one who “bloomed” in her remote area. Dorothy taught in a school In Harlan County, Kentucky, Appalachian Mountain area. To get to her school from the town of Harlan, I followed a road winding around the mountain. In the eight-mile journey, I crossed the same railroad track five times, giving the possibility of getting caught by the same train five times. Rather than feeling excited by this drive through the mountains, I found it depressing. The poverty level was shocking and the small shabby houses gave me the greatest feeling of hopelessness. From the moment of my arrival at the little school, all gloom (忧郁) disappeared. Upon arriving at Dorothy?s classroom. I was greeted with smiling faces and treated like a queen. The children had been prepared to show me their latest projects. Dorothy told me with a big smile that they were serving poke greens salad and cornbread for “dinner” (lunch). In case you don?t know, poke greens are a weed-type plant that grows wild, especially on poor ground. Dorothy never ran out of reports of exciting activities of her students. Her enthusiasm never cooled down. When it came time to sit for the testing and interviewing required to receive her Child Development Associate Certification, Dorothy was ready. She came to the assessment and passed in all areas. Afterward, she invited me to the one-and-only steak house in the area to celebrate her victory, as if she had received her Ph. D. degree. After the meal, she placed a little box containing an old pen in my hand. She said it was a family heirloom (传家宝), but to me it is a treasured symbol of appreciation and pride that cannot be matched with things. (360 words) 61. “Early Childhood Development” in Paragraph 1 refers to __________.

Answer the questions according to the information given in the passage. “Let’s Talk”:The Free Advice Project A few weeks ago, I took a walk around Washington Square Park. I met all the usual people:street performers, the Pigeon Guy, a group of guitarists singing in harmony. But off to the side, sitting on a bench was a woman doing something vastly different—giving free advice. A week or two later, I set up an interview with her and we discussed her project at length. Lisa Podell, 32, started the Free Advice Project this past May. It began as an experiment;she sat in Washington Square Park for a day with a sign that read “Free Advice” as a simple way to reach out to people. Podell was astonished at the strong response. Podell admits that she was doubtful at first, but now she describes the project as mutually (相互地) beneficial. People learn from her—but she also learns from them. She says that the majority of those who come to her are dealing with some pretty heavy issues, and they expect her not only to listen, but also provide real answers. Having worked as a full time teacher and now as an adolescent advisor, Podell believes that talking things out is an important in the decision-making process. Sometimes, people walk around all day, keeping their problems in their own head and thinking about them in the same way. Podell simply strives to provide people with perspective. I asked if there is a future plan for the Free Advice Project. Podell said she would like to promote it to each public space in New York, which would be carried out by various volunteers across the city.

It was truly inspiring to meet someone with such a big heart, especially in New York—where it is sometimes very hard to find anybody to listen. 81. In what way was Podell different from other people in the park? (No more than 6 words) (2 marks) ___________________________________________________________________________________ 82. What do people in need expect Podell to do? (No more than 10 words) (3 marks) ___________________________________________________________________________________ 83. According to Podell, what should people do when making decisions? (No more than 6 words) (2 marks) ___________________________________________________________________________________ 84. How would Podell promote her project in New York? (No more than 15 words) (3 marks) ___________________________________________________________________________________

第三部分:阅读理解(共 15 小题;每小题 2 分,满分 30 分)

56.The leaflet is to inform visitors of the Park?s________ A. advanced management C. entertainment facilities 57.A visitor to the Park can________. A. rent a stroller outside Front Gate C. smoke in the Water Park B. ask for first aid by Thunder Run D. leave his pet at KidZville B We?ve considered several ways of paying to cut inline: hiring line standers, buying tickets from scalpers (票贩子), or purchasing line cutting privileges directly from, say, an airline or an amusement park. Each of these deals replaces the morals of the queue (waiting your turn) with the morals of the market B. thrill performances D. thoughtful services

(paying a price for faster service). Markets and queues—paying and waiting—are two different ways of allocating things, and each is appropriate to different activities. The morals of the queue, “First come, first served,” have an egalitarian(平 等主义的) appeal. They tell us to ignore privilege, power, and deep pockets. The principle seems right on play grounds and at bus stops. But the morals of the queue do not govern all occasions. If I put my house up for sale, I have no duty to accept the first offer that comes along, simply because it?s the first. Selling my house and waiting for a bus are different activities, properly governed by different standards. Sometimes standards change, and it is unclear which principle should apply. Think of the recorded message you hear, played over and over, as you wait on hold when calling your bank: “Your call will be answered in the order in which it was received.” This is essential for the morals of the queue. It?s as if the company is trying to ease our impatience with fairness. But don?t take the recorded message too seriously. Today, some people?s calls are answered faster than others. Call center technology enables companies to“score” incoming call sand to give faster service to those that come from rich places. You might call this telephonic queue jumping. Of course, markets and queues are not the only ways of allocating things. Some goods we distribute by merit, others by need, still others by chance. However, the tendency of markets to replace queues, and other non-market ways of allocating goods is so common in modern life that we scarcely notice it anymore. It is striking that most of the paid queue-jumping schemes we?ve considered—at airports and amusement parks, in call centers, doctors?offices, and national parks—are recent developments, scarcely imaginable three decades ago. The disappearance of the queues in these places may seem an unusual concern, but these are not the only places that markets have entered. 58.According to the author, which of the following seems governed by the principle“First come, first served”? A. Taking buses. C. Flying with an airline. B. Buying houses. D. Visiting amusement parks.

59.The example of the recorded message in Paragraphs 4 and 5 illustrates. A. the necessity of patience in queuing C. the uncertainty of allocation principle 60.The passage is meant to . A. justify paying for faster services C. analyze the reason for standing in line B. discuss the morals of allocating things D. criticize the behavior of queue jumping B. the advantage of modern technology D. the fairness of telephonic services

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 The light from the campfire brightened the darkness, but it could not prevent the damp cold of Dennis?s Swamp (沼泽地) creeping into their bones. It was a strange place. Martin and Tom wished that they had not accepted Jack?s dare. They liked camping, but not near this swamp. “So,” Martin asked as they sat watching the hot coals. “How did this place get its name ? ” “Are you sure you want to hear it ? It?s a scary story,” warned Jack. “Of course!” cried out Tom. “If there were anything to be scared of, you wouldn?t have chosen this place!” “Ok, but don?t say I didn?t warn you,” said Jack, and he began this tale. “Way back in time, a man called Dennis tried to start a farm here. He built that cottage over there to live in . In those days, the area looked quite different —- it was covered with tall trees and the swamp was a crystal-clear river. After three hard years, Dennis had cleared several fields and planted crops. He was so proud of his success that he refused to listen to advice. “ ?You are clearing too much land, ? warned one old man. ? The land is a living thing. It will hit back at you if you abuse it. ? “ ? Silly fool,? said Dennis to himself. ?If I clear more land, I can grow more crops. I?ll become

wealthier. He?s just jealous!?” “Dennis continued to chop down trees. Small animals that relied on them for food and shelter were destroyed. He was so eager to expand his farm that he did not notice the river flowing slowly towards his door. He did not notice salt seeping to the surface of the land. He did not notice swamp plants choking all the native plants.” “What happened ? ” Martin asked. It was growing colder. He trembled, twisting his body closer to the fire. “The land hit back —- just as the old man warned, ” Jack shrugged. “Dennis disappeared. Old folks around here believe that swamp plants moved up from the river and dragged him underwater. His body was never found.” “What a stupid story, ” laughed Tom. “Plants can?t …” Before he had finished speaking, he screamed and fainted(晕倒). The other two boys jumped up with fright, staring at Tom. Suddenly, they burst out laughing. Some green swamp ivy (常春藤) had covered Tom?s face. It was a while before Tom could appreciate the joke. 56. The underlined word “dare” in Paragraph 1 is closed in meaning to ________. A. courage B. assistance C. instruction D. challenge

57. Why did Jack tell Tom and Martin the story ? A. To frighten them. C. To warn them of the danger of the place. B. To satisfy their curiosity. D. To persuade them to camp in the swamp.

58. Why did Dennis ignore the warning of the old man ? A. The old man envied him. C. He was too busy to listen to others. 59. Why did Tom scream and faint ? A. He saw Dennis?s shadow C. His friends played a joke on him. B. He was scared by a plant D. The weather became extremely cold. B. The old man was foolish D. He was greedy for more crops.

60. What lesson can we learn from the story of Dennis ? A. Grasp all, lose all. C. It is no use crying over spilt milk. B. No sweat, no sweet. D. He who makes no mistakes makes nothing.

B When international aid is given, steps must be taken to ensure (确保)that the aid reaches the people for whom it is intended. The way to achieve this may not be simple. It is very difficult for a nation to give help directly to people in another nation. The United Nations Organiztion(UNO) could undertake to direct the distribution of aid. Here however rises the problem of costs. Also tied with this is time. Perhaps the UNO could set up a body of devoted men and women is every country who can speedily distribute aid to victims of floods and earthquakes. More than the help that one nation can give to another during a disaster, it would be more effective to give other forms of help during normal times. A common proverb says, “Give me a fish and I eat for day, teach me to fish and I eat for a lifetime.” If we follow this wise saying, it would be right to teach people from less developed nations to take care of themselves. For example, a country could share its technology with another. This could be in simple areas like agriculture or in more complex areas like medical and health care or even in building satellites. Even small country is able to help less developed nations. Sometimes what is take for granted, like the setting up of a water purification plant or the administration of a school, could be useful for countries which are looking about to solve common problems. It does not cost much to share such simple things. Exchange students could be attached for a number of months or years and learn the required craft while on the site. They can then take their knowledge back to their homelands and if necessary come back form time to time to clear doubts or to update themselves. Such aid will be truly helpful and there is no chance of it being temporary or of it falling into the wrong hands. Many countries run extensive courses in all sorts of skills. It will not cost much to include deserving foreigners in these courses. Besides giving effective help to the countries concerned, there is also the build-up of friendships to consider. Giving direct help by giving materials may be effective in the short run and must continue to be given in the event of emergencies. However, in the long run what is really effective would be the sharing of knowledge. 61. According to the author, how could international aid reach the victims in time ? A. By solving the cost problems B. By solving the transportation problems C. By setting up a body of devoted people in every country.

D. By relying on the direct distribution of the UNO. 62. What does the author try to express in the underlined sentence ? A. Providing food is vital C. Teaching skills is essential B. Learning to fish is helpful D. Looking after others is important.

63. The second paragraph is developed mainly _________. A. by example B. by process C. by comparison D. by contrast

64. Which aid is likely to fall into the wrong hands ? A. A medical team. C. A water plant. B. An exchange program. D. Financial support.

65. What can we infer about international aid from the passage ? A. It is facing difficulties. C. It should be given in the form of materials B. It is unnecessary during normal times D. It has gained support developed countries

第一节 阅读表达(共 5 小题;每小题 2 分,满分 10 分) 阅读下面短文并回答问题,然后将答案写到答题卡相应的位置上(请注意问题后的词数要求) 。 [1] Fishing is probably the world?s most popular sport. People spend many dollars each year on items like boats and four-wheel-drive vehicles. In addition, they spend money on fishing equipment , bait, fuel and boat repairs. And you can see that fishing can be an expensive pastime. Fishing lovers believe that their hobby is worth it. Others say that fishing is spoiling the environment and that it is a cruel hobby. [2] Supporters of fishing say that it is a nice hobby. Firstly, of the millions of people who fish for fun, most only catch enough fish to feed their families. They catch fish that are found in large numbers, so there is little danger to the species (种类). [3] Secondly, recreational fishermen contribute to the economy. They spend money on equipment and other items, and they also spend it indirectly by paying taxes on their equipment and fuel. Those who travel to fishing spots pay for accommodation (食宿) and airfares. This money keeps people in work and provides new jobs each year. [4] Thirdly, fishing is relaxing and fun so it lessens stress. Instead of turning to drugs or alcohol, it is far better to go fishing. People who are relaxed are generally healthier and much nicer to be near —-- except for the smell of the bait !

[5] Those who _________________ say that there are too many fish thoughtlessly taken form rivers, lakes, streams and oceans. This could lead to the dying out of some species. Modern cars and boats mean that people can fish in remote areas of the world, so no place is safe from greedy fishermen who take both males and females, leaving few fish to produce young. [6] Those against fishing also say that it is a blood sport, which means that an animal must die so that a human can have fun. Many of the fish caught for sport are not suitable for eating, so they are thrown away. Once hooked, fish have no chance of escape. 76. What is the main idea of the passage ?

A China is a land of bicycles. At least it was back in 1992 when I traveled the country. Back then everyone seemed to be riding a bicycle. Millions of them, all black. Cars were rare. Yet since my arrival in Beijing last year, I?ve found the opposite is true. There are millions of cars. However, people still use their bicycles to get around. For many, it?s the easiest and cheapest way to travel today. Bicycles also come in different colors—sivler, green, red, blue, yellow, whatever you want. It?s fun watching people biking. They rush quickly through crossroads, move skillfully through traffic, and ride even on sidewalks(人行道). Bicycles allow people the freedom to move about that cars just can?t

provide. Eager to be part of this aspect of Chinese culture, I decided to buy a bicycle. Great weather accompanied my great buy. I immediately jumped up on my bicycle seat and started home. My first ride home was orderly (守秩序的). To be safe, I stayed with a “pack” of bikers while cars on the streets came running swiftly out of nowhere at times. I didn?t want to get hit. So I took the ride carefully. Crossing the streets was the biggest problem. It was a lot like crossing a major highway back in the United States. The streets here were wide, so crossing took time, skill and a little bit of luck. I finally made it home. The feeling on the bicycle was amazing. The air hitting my face and going through my hair was wonderful. I was sitting on top of the world as I passed by places and people. Biking made me feel alive. 56.

On April22, 2011, we decided to go green every single day for an entire year. This meant doing 365 different green things, and it also meant challenging ourselves to go green beyond easy things.

涂黑。 A Jimmy is an automotive mechanic, but he lost his job a few months ago. He has good heart, but always feared applying for a new job. One day, he gathered up all his strength and decided to attend a job interview. His appointment was at 10 am and it was already 8:30. While waiting for a bus to the office where he was supposed ot be interviewed, he saw an elderly man wildly kicking the tyre of his car. Obviously there was something wrong with the car. Jimmy immediately went up to lend him a hand. When Jimmy finished working on the car, the old man asked him how much he should pay for the service. Jimmy said there was no need to pay him; he just helped someone in need, and he had to rush for an interview. Then the old man said, “Well, I could take you to the office for your interview. It?s the least I could do. Please. I insist.” Jimmy agreed. Upon arrival, Jimmy found a long line of applications waiting to be interviewed. Jimmy still had some grease on him after the car repair, but he did not have much time to wash it off or have a change of shirt. One by one, the applicants left the interviewer?s office with disappointed look on their faces. Finally his name was called. The interviewer was sitting on a large chair facing the office window. Rocking the chair back and forth, he asked, “Do you really need to be interviewed?” Jimmy?s heart sank. “With the way I look now, how could I possibly pass this interview?” he thought to himself. Then the interviewer turned the chair and to Jimmy?s surprise, it was the old man he helped earlier in the morning. It turned out he was the General Manager of the company. “Sorry I had to keep you waiting, but I was pretty sure I made the right decision to have you as part of our workforce before you even stepped into the office. I just know you?d be a trustworthy worker. Congratulations!” Jimmy sat down and they shared a cup of well-deserved coffee as he landed himself a new job. 56. Why did Jimmy apply for a new job? A.

Over the years they have been sung and played in every possible way — from jazz to country. In the 1920s there was a debate in the United States about jazz music. Could jazz, some people asked, be considered serious music? In 1924 jazz musician and orchestra leader Paul Whiteman decided to organize a special concert to show that jazz was serious music. Gershwin agreed to compose something for the concert before he realized he had just a few weeks to do it. And in that short time, he composed a piece for piano and orchestra which he called Rhapsody in Blue. Gershwin himself played the piano at the concert. The audience were thrilled when they heard his music. It made him world-famous and showed that jazz music could be both serious and popular. In 1928, Gershwin went to Paris. He applied to study composition (作曲)with the well-known musician Nadia Boulanger, but she rejected him. She was afraid that classical study would ruin his jazz-influenced style. While there, Gershwin wrote An American in Paris. When it was first performed, critics (评论家)were divided over the music. Some called it happy and full of life, to others it was silly and boring. But it quickly B. There was no hope for him to get the job D. The interviewer was very rude

became popular in Europe and the United States. It sill remains one of his most famous works. George Gershwin died in 1937, just days after doctors learned he had brain cancer.

The same man, who dislikes his job in the factory or even in the office, may work hard at the weekend, painting the house or digging the garden. What is the reason, then? In most cases, it is because these people simply do not enjoy the job they are doing. It does not give them any real satisfaction.

But the part they play in actually making the car is so small that they can never say: I have made something! Yet in modern society somebody has to do ordinary jobs such as cleaning streets because this is the way society is organized. No matter how ordinary a job is, it plays a part in society and therefore deserves our due respect. Society cannot function a single day without the “dull and boring” jobs.
