Last Friday, after doing all the family shopping in the town, I wanted a 32 before catching the train, so I bought a 33 and some chocolate and went to the station coffee shop—that cheap, self-service place with long 34 to sit at. I put my heavy bag down on the floor, put the newspaper and chocolate on the table to 35 a place, and went to get a cup of coffee. When I came back with the coffee, 36 was someone in the next seat. It was one of those wild-looking young men, with dark glasses and torn clothes, and hair coloured bright 37 at the front, no so unusual these days. What did 38 me most was he’d started to 39 my chocolate! Naturally, I was angry. However, to avoid trouble—then really I was rather uneasy about him—I just 40 down at the front page of the newspaper, tasted my coffee, and took a bit of chocolate. The boy looked at me 41 .

Ⅳ.阅读理解（共 15 小题，每小题 2 分，满分 30 分） A Blameless I was a freshman in college when I met the Whites. They were completely different from my own family, yet I felt at home with them immediately. Jane White and I became friends at school, and her family welcomed me like a long-lost cousin. In my family, it was always important to place blame when anything bad happened. “Who did this?” my mother would scream about a dirty kitchen. “This is all your fault, Katharine,” my father would insist when the cat got out or the dishwasher broke. From the time we were little, my sister, brothers and I told on each other. We set a place for blame at the dinner table. zxxk But the Whites didn’t worry about who had done what. They picked up the pieces and moved on with their lives. The beauty of this was driven home to me the summer Jane died. In July, the White sisters and I decided to take a car trip from their home in Florida to New York. The two older sisters, Sarah and Jane, were college students, and the youngest, Amy, had recently turned sixteen. Proud of having a new driver’s license （驾照） Amy was excited about practicing her driving on the trip. She showed , off her license to everyone she met. The big sisters shared the driving of Sarah’s new car during the first part of the trip, but when they reached less crowded areas, they let Amy take over. Somewhere in South Carolina, we pulled off the highway to eat. After lunch, Amy got behind the wheel. She came to a cr ossroads with a stop sign. Whether she was nervous or just didn’t see the sign no one would ever know, but Amy continued into the crossroads
without stopping. The dri ver of a large truck, unable to stop in time, ran into our car. Jane was killed immediately. [来源:Z+xx+k.Com] I was slightly injured. The most difficult thing that I’ve ever done was to call the Whites to tell them about the accident and that Jane had died. Painful as it was for me to lose a good friend, I knew that it was far worse for them to lose a child. When Mr. and Mrs. White arrived at the hospital, they found their two daughters sharing a room. Sarah had a few cuts on the head; Amy’s leg was broken. They hugged us all and cried tears of sadness and of joy at seeing their daughters. They wiped away the girls’ tears and made a few jokes at Amy as she learned to use her crutches(拐杖).[来源:学&科&网] To both of their daughters, and especially to Amy, over and over they simply said, “We’re so glad that you’re alive.” I was astonished. No blame. No accusations. Later, I asked the Whites why they never talked about the fact that Amy was driving and had run a stop sign. Mrs. White said, “Jane’s gone, and we miss her terribly. Nothing we say or do will ever bring her back. But Amy has her whole life ahead of her. How can she lead a full and happy life if she feels we blame her for her si ster’s death? ” They were right. Amy graduated from the University of California and got married several years ago. She works as a teacher of learning-disabled students. She’s also a mother of two little girls of her own, the oldest named Jane. 51.The author of the passage is _____. A. Mrs. White’s niece B. Jane’s school friend C. The Whites’ cousin D. Sarah’s friend from college 52.How did the author’s parents differ from the Whites? A. The author’s parents were less caring. B. The author’s parents were less loving. C. The author’s parents were les s friendly. D. The author’s parents were less understanding. 53.How did the accident occur? A. Amy didn’t stop at a crossroads and a truck hit their car. B. Amy didn’t know what to do when she saw the stop sign. C. Amy didn’t slow down so their car ran into a truck. D. Amy didn’t get off the highway at a crossroads. 54.The Whites did not blame Amy for Jane’s death because _____. A. they didn’t want Amy to feel ashamed and sorry for the rest of her life B. Amy was badly injured herself and they didn’t want to add to her pain C. they didn’t want to blame their children in front of others D. Amy was their youngest daughter and they loved her best 55.From the passage we can learn that _____. A. Amy has never recovered from the shock B. Amy changed her job after the accident C.

B More than 2,400 years ago, a sickness struck Athens. The disease is said to have killed up to one third of all Athenians, including their leader Pericles. The huge loss of life helped to change the balance of power between Athens and its enemy, Sparta, in the ancient world. Historians say the sickness began in what is now Ethiopia. They say it passed through Egypt and Libya before it entered Greece. Knowledge of the disease has come mainly from the writings of the ancient Greek historian Thucydides, who survived it. So what caused the fall of Athens? Now, a study based on genetic(遗传的) testing says it was probably typhoid (伤寒) fever. Greek researchers announced the results. Journal of Infectious Diseases published the findings online last week. Researchers from the University of Athens tested human remains from an ancient burial place in the Greek capital. The researchers collected genetic material from teeth. They say tests found genetic evidence similar to that of the modern-day Sa lmonella (沙门氏菌). Manolis Papagrigorakis led the University of Athens team. He says the findings throw light on one of the most debated mysteries in medical history. Typhoid fever is a life-threatening disease that is common today in developing countries. Exper ts say there are more than 21,000,000 cases each year. Typhoid can be spread by food or drink that has been handled by a person infected with the bacteria(细菌) that causes it. Bacteria in human waste can pollute water supplies. So water used for drinking or to wash food can also spread the infection. Hand washing is important to reducing the spread of typhoid. And there are vaccines (疫苗) that can help prevent it. Some people recover but continue to carry the bacteria. These carriers can get sick again. And they may continue to infect others. Doctors can do tests to make sure the bacteria has left the body. 56.The writer mentions the fall of Athens in order to ______. A. show the unknown history of Athens B. introduce the seriousness of typhoid C. tell the situation of the ancient war D. explain what type of disease. typhoid is 57.What might be the right route of typhoid spreading? A. Egypt→Libya→Ethiopia→Greece. B. Greece→Egypt→Libya→Ethiopia. C. Ethiopia→Egypt→Libya→Greece. D. Ethiopia→Greece→Egypt→Libya. 58.According to Manolis, which of the following is TRUE? A. Typhoid is what was called Salmonella in ancient times. B. Genetic material has been alive for many years. C. A common disease could be found in ancient times. D. Typhoid was one of the deadly diseases in ancient Greece. 59.How many ways of spreading the typhoid bacteria are mentioned in the text?
60.We can infer from the text that _______. A. teeth can hold the largest amount of typhoid bacteria B. typhoid is now a common deadly disease i n the world C. there are some solutions to preventing typhoid fever D. most of the typhoid patients won’t get infected once again C Going on a road trip? The St. Louis Arch, Statue of Liberty and Golden Gate Bridge are great tourist sites. But if you prefer offbeat destinations, check out the following roadside attractions. World’s Largest Ball of Paint Alexandria, Ind. In 1977, Michael Carmichael set out to create the biggest ball of paint anywhere. Starting with a baseball as center, he painted layer after layer of paint day after day, year after year. The ball weighs more than 1,300 pounds, with more than 20,000 coats of paint, which is recognized by Guinness World Records. Visitors can paint the ball themselves and become part of history.

This museum claims to have the world’s largest collection of prepared mustard(芥末). Its more than 4, 100 bottles of spices come from 60 nations, including Turkey and China. Visitors learn the history of mustard, from how it’s made to how it’s advertised and sold. The museum’s creator, Barry Levenson, loves mustard so much that he even puts it on ice cream! Paper House Rockport, Mass. Swedish immigrant (移民) Ellis Stenman was much ahead of his time in 1922, when he started to build a two-room house almost entirely out of newspaper. At the time, people didn’t give much, if any, thought to recycling paper. In fact, “recycling” wasn’t even a word yet. The house is framed with wood, but the walls are made of 215 layers of newspaper.

E. Keep Your Vehicle in Good Condition F. Drinking and Driving Has Fatal Consequences Traffic Safety Tips If you are among those who think that traffic safety tips arc something that need to be given to children and not adults, you are so very wrong. Being an adult, it is our responsibility to set a good example for others. Remember when you arc driving a car with your teenaged son or daughter sitting next to you, he or she is watching you and observing how you drive. So make sure that you follow all the necessary traffic rules to set a good example. Some of the effective traffic safety tips are mentioned below. Put Your Seat Belt On The first thing that you are supposed to do, and make sure that others in the car also do, is to put your seat belt on. In case there is a child in the car between the age of 4 and 8, a booster seat (额外座椅) should be used as safety belts are not meant for small children and cannot protect them in case of accidents. Kids under the age of 12 should never sit on the front seat. 76.________ Do you drive, listen to music, eat your sandwich and speak on the phone all at the same time? If you do this, you are not displaying your super powers but allowing multiple things to distract you. Once you are driving, be it alone or with your friends and family, you are responsible for everyone present in the car. So stop doing other things and focus on driving safe. 77._______ Teenagers and young adults especially, don’t realize the risks they are putting themselves into. Alcohol influences your mood and mind and may not give you the judgment and control that you need to have when driving safe. Even smoking should be avoided and drugs should not be consumed if you are planning to drive. 78.________ Driving under pressure with your mind occupied with issues at work or at home would easily allow you to distract your mind off the road leading to an accident. So make sure that you don’t let the things outside your car affect you when you are in the car. Sleep properly and stay relaxed before hitting the road. 79.______[来源:Zxxk.Com] Your emotions or impatience may make you break the signal at times. Or break the speed limit because you are getting late. Don’t do that! The consequences for that may actually be enough to separate you from your driver’s license on a permanent basis. Make sure you obey the traffic rules and guidelines and do all that you can to be a responsible citizen. 80.________ Last but not the least, keep your car in good condition. Make sure you are giving your car for servicing an maintenance (保养) on time. Make sure you always check your vehicle tires before hitting the road and don’t run out of gas![来源:学 § 网] 科§ So these were some of the main traffic safety tips that should be followed by one and all in order to stay safe and be an example for others. Remember, rules and regulations are made for your own benefit and safety. So make sure that you obey
