For three years, no matter 38 the weather was like, she was always waiting at the bus stop around 8:00 a.m. On 39 days, she wore heavy clothes and a pair of woolen gloves. Summertime 40 out neat, belted cotton dresses and a hat pulled low over her sunglasses. 41 , she was an ordinary working woman. Of course, I 42 all this only after she was seen no more. It was then that I realized how 43 I expected to see her each morning. You might say I 44 her. “Did she have an accident? Something 45 ?” I thought to myself about her 46 . Now that she was gone, I felt I had 47 her. I began to realize that part of our 48 life probably includes such chance meetings with familiar 49 : the milkman you see at dawn, the woman who 50 walks her dog along the street every morning, the twin brothers you see at the library. Such people are 51 markers in our lives. They add weight to our 52 of place and belonging. Think about it. 53 while walking to work, we mark where we are by 54 a certain building, why should we not mark where we are when we pass a familiar, though 55 person? 36. A. Make B. Take C. Give D.

I was very curious when I arrived in London. First, I noticed so many people were on a trip in a busy way. When I first saw the machine on the underground where you are expected to feed your ticket in and have to run through
moving barriers (拦板), I was completely fascinated (被迷住了) at it. Flashing with the light, the little green man, telling you when to cross the road, was also quite interesting, and so were those street advertisements which kept changing subjects as you look. In my native place, my life is so different from people’s here. I am a market gardener from Makono, a village which is led by a market-managing group. People there usually walk two hours a day to get water from a well. What’s more, I am used to going, for many hours, without drinking, so it was strange to be offered cups of tea all the time here in London. In my native place, on market days, I usually walk for several hours with my basket full of fruits and vegetables on my head, carrying them to the market for sale, to earn ￡1 per basket. Without the produce from my garden, I could not pay for education or healthcare for my children. Gardening is not a hobby for me – it’s survival. But here people are planting something only to kill their leisure time. During our visiting-time in Britain, we visited some local government agencies, schools, churches and farms in Sussex, Scotland, Yorshire, Loncolnshire and Cambridgeshire, meeting people who were of the same profession as we are. Children in Burley-in-Wharfedale, Yorkshire, prepared a special get-together to greet us and we were also asked a lot about our life which was quite fascinating to them. For example, how we make our houses out of mud and how we get our water for our daily necessities, as well as for our garden. 56. What can we learn from Paragraph One ? A. The writer knew London well. B. Londoners are always in a hurry . C. It was easy to get lost in London. D. Everything looked new to the writer. 57. The most disadvantage in the writer’s native place should be that ___ . A. there are many market-managing groups for gardeners B. the lack of water makes the life there even harder C. people there like to travel about on foot for enjoyment D. people support themselves using the garden produce 58. The underlined word “ survival” has the most exact meaning of ___ . A. a means of earning one’s life B. a habit to live a better life C. a kind of very practical idea D. a custom followed by people 59. Which of the following should be the best title ? A. How to Get around in London B. Communicating with the British C. Experiencing Modern Life D. How Can One Live Leisurely(休闲地) （B） Sometimes you’ll hear people say that you can’t love others until you love yourself. Sometimes you’ll hear people say that you can’t expect someone else to love you until you love yourself. Either way, you’ve got to love yourself first and this can be tricky. Sure we all know that we’re the apple of our parent’s eyes, and that our Grandmas think we’re great talents and our Uncle Roberts think that we will go to the Olympics. But sometimes it’s a lot harder to think such nice thoughts about ourselves. If you find that believing in yourself is a challenge. It is time you built a positive self-image and learn to love yourself. Self-image is your own mind’s picture of yourself. This image includes the way you look, the way you act, the way you talk and the way you think. Interestingly, our self-images are often quite different from the images others hold about us. Unfortunately, most of these images are more
negative than they should be. Thus changing the way you think about yourself is the key to changing your self-image and your whole world. The best way to defeat a passive self-image is to step back and decide to stress your successes. That is, make a list of you need to, but write down all of the great things you do every day. Don’t allow doubts to occur in it. It very well might be that you are experiencing a negative self-image because you can’t move past one flaw or weakness that you see about yourself. Well, roll up your sleeves and make a change of it as your primary task. If you think you’re silly because you aren’t good at math, find a tutor. If you think you’re weak because you can’t run a mile, get to the track and practice. If you think you’re dull because you think it doesn’t mean it’s true. The best way to get rid of a negative self-image is to realize that your image is far from objective, and to actively convince yourself of your positive qualities. Changing the way you think and working on those you need to improve will go a long way towards promoting a positive self-image. When you can pat（拍）yourself on the back, you’ll know you’re well on your way. Good luck! 60. You need to build a positive self-image when you . A. dare to challenge yourself B. feel it hard to change yourself C. are unconfident about yourself D. have a high opinion of yourself 61. How should you change your self-image according to the passage? A. To keep a different image of others. B. To accept your weaknesses. C. To understand your own world. D. To change the way you think. 62. What is the passage mainly about? A. How to prepare for your success. B. How to face challenges in your life. C. How to build a positive self-image. D. How to develop your good qualities. （C） It’s interesting that the arrival of snow has a different effect on people in different countries. For some countries it is an important happening to celebrate each year, while for others it is a catastrophe (灾难). There are countries between these two extremes that normally expect snow some time over the winter months, but never receive snow regularly or in the same quantities every year. Britain is one such country, for which the arrival of snow quite simply creates problems. Within hours of the first snowfall, however light, roads are blocked; trains and buses stop in the middle of traffic. Normal communications are affected as well, telephone calls become difficult and the post immediately takes more time than usual. Almost within hours, there are also shortages(缺乏) –bread, vegetables and other things – not because all these things can no longer be produced or sent to shops, but mainly because people are frightened, and go out to store up these commodities, “just for fear that something bad should happen.” Why then does snow have this effect? After all, the Swiss, Austrians and Canadians don’t have such problems. It is simply because there is not enough plan and preparation. We need money to buy equipment to deal with snow and ice. To keep the roads clear, for example, requires snow ploughs and machines to spread salt. The reason why a country like Britain does not buy some
ploughs is that they are only used for a few days in any one year, and the money could be more useful in other things such as hospital education or helping the old. 63. According to the writer, Britain is a country____. A. which has regular snow C. for which snow is not a catastrophe A. traffic B. communication B. for which snow is a wonder D . which is not well prepared for snow D. service quality
64. The arrival of snow in Britain affects all of the following except____ C. food supplies 65. After a few hours’ snowing there are often shortages of food because______ A．people buy as much as they can C．farmers can’t produce any more A．spreading salt is good enough C．snow ploughs are not used often B．shops have closed down D．people eat more vegetables in winter B．old people need more money D．the hospital is more important
66. The first reason why the British don’t buy snow ploughs is that______
（D） I sat crouched (蹲着) in the shade under a sixty-foot-tall cactus (仙人掌), waiting for them to appear. The time was eight thirty in the morning. For seven mornings I had come to the same distant spot in the Sonoran Desert, in southern Arizona. I was here to watch the roadrunner, a small fast-running bird. I spotted two birds under a bush with red flowers. The roadrunners rushed out from under it. The birds moved rapidly on long skinny legs. Their feathers were brown and black. Their tails were seven inches long. Roadrunners use the tail for balance when running. That day, the roadrunners performed a courtship (求婚) dance. They ran in wild circles. Suddenly, one stopped and stood still, its round eyes full of light. The second bird took hold of a small stick off the ground and presented it to the first, a gift serving as a symbol of their partnership. I returned to the spot each day, leaving bits of boiled chicken hoping they would return. Roadrunners eat snakes, lizards, mice, beetles, and spiders. Food is in short supply in the desert, so my offerings were welcome. The pair grew used to me. Soon after the pair finished building their nest (巢), six white eggs appeared in the nest bowl. In about three weeks, six roadrunner chicks, skin as black as coal, cried for food. Their parents brought food such as fence lizards and stink bugs. They fed their young until they were a month and a half old. Early one morning, a coyote (丛林狼 ) came around, nose to the ground, for fresh bird meat. The roadrunners fearlessly drove the coyote away, but it was soon back. After three attacks the coyote went away for good, tail between its legs. I stopped watching the nest when the little roadrunners, at two months of age, were ready to live on their own. It was hard to break away from "my roadrunner family." Whenever I see a roadrunner now, rushing over the ground, I say hello to it as an old friend. 67. The author went to the Sonoran Desert to . A. carry out research into deserts in the US B. make an observation about a kind of bird
C. write an article about birds in the desert D. enjoy an adventure in southern Arizona 68. What can we learn about roadrunners from the text? A. They move at a fast pace. B. They have short tails and legs. C. Their feathers are red and brown. D. They don't like boiled chicken. 69. We can learn from the last but one paragraph that the roadrunners were . A. shy B. careful C. brave D. lazy 70. Which of the following would be the best title for the text? A. Roadrunner family in the Sonoran Desert B. My close friendship with roadrunners C. How do roadrunners seek a partner? D. How did I find roadrunners in Arizona? 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：每个空格只填 1 个单词。请将答案写在答题卡上相应题号的横线上。 Frederick M. Hess is the director of education policy studies at the American Enterprise Institute, which is a nonprofit organization that conducts research on many public issues. He says that a long summer vacation doesn’t make sense in today’s world. Can American students afford to take a summer vacation? In a summer vacation, millions of kids spend valuable time sending messages, watching TV, playing video games and doing shopping in the mall. They will also be putting their academic futures at risk. Summer vacation once made sense in the past when you didn’t need an education to get a good job. But now things have changed. For today’s students, academic skills are important to students’ future success, but such skills are affected in the summertime. Many nations don’t give kids an American-style summer vacation. They offer no more than seven consecutive(连续的) weeks of vacation. Most American school districts offer up to thirteen weeks. To compete in the global marketplace, Americans must be prepared to go up against international competitors. Summer vacation also causes challenges for today’s families. In the 1960s, more than 60% of families had a stay-at-home Mom. Now two-thirds of American children live in households where every adult works. For these families, summer vacation can be more burden than break. Someone must watch the kids. But the biggest problem may be how summer vacation hurts academic achievement. Researchers have found that disadvantaged students lose significant ground in the summertime. A longer school year does not have to be an invitation to hard boring work. Rather, it should allow time-pressed teachers to conduct richer and more imaginative lessons. Schools should have more time to devote to athletics, languages, music and the arts. Summer vacation can be a grand thing. But in the 21st century, it may also be outdated. Title: Long Summer 71

However, many others disagree with the policy. In their opinion, many rich and powerful parents will make use of their power and money to get a chance for their children, which is totally unfair to other students. Also, in order to prepare for it, you have to spend much money and time on it while only a few will succeed. It’s not worthwhile at all. Personally, I am for the reform. For one thing, it means college entrance exams are not the
only way to get access to university. Two chances are always better than one. For another, it will be beneficial to both colleges and students as long as it is carried out properly.
