Everyone says, and it’s 31 , that one of the most effective ways to 32 negative emotions is to lighten up. If things are sad, try to find a 33 to laugh. If you’re angry, 34 around. Easier said than done, however. I had a chance to keep my resolution to ―Make a joke of it‖ last night. After the negotiations last year,
my husband 35 the job of dealing with my daughter’s adventure in orthodontia(畸龄矫正). The orthodontist’s office is 36 around the corner from his office, and he agreed that he’d 37 the appointments and take her, which was GREAT! Then on our flight to Kansas for our holidays, my daughter lost the thing she 38 in her mouth. We got back home a week later, but my husband didn’t call to make an 39 . Days went by. I 40 him periodically, but nothing happened. Whenever I thought about this 41 , I became extremely annoyed. Last night, I walked into our bedroom 42 to turn on my anger at full volume(音量). ―This really 43 , she’s growing now, what’s the point, it’s expensive, you promised you’d do it,‖ etc. , etc. , etc. Then I thought, ―Make a joke of it.‖ So I went over, put my arm around the Big Man, and said 44 , ―You know what? If you don’t call the orthodontist’s tomorrow, I’m going to be angry, and I’m going to be beside myself. I’m not 45 , just giving you fair warning.‖ And I laughed while I said it. ―I know, I know!‖ he said and today he made the appointment. I’m not sure if making a joke of it was more effective than getting 46 , but I don’t think it was 47 effective. And it was a much nicer way to have that unpleasant exchange. I was happier about it, and the Big Man was happier about it. Of course, I 48 that my joke wasn’t funny at all. But just the attempt to take a 49 attitude made a huge difference. It’s easy to say ―make a joke of it‖, but it’s hard to do when you’re feeling angry, scared, 50 , or upset. Have you found a way to get yourself to make a joke? 31. A. absolute B. abstract C. genuine D. true 32. A. handle B. present C. experience D. release 33. A. reward B. target C. reason D. solution 34. A. joke B. panic C. smile D. turn 35.

答题卡上将该项涂黑。 A There is a junk store. An old man owns it. We bought a used refrigerator from him once, and Carlos sold a box of magazines for a dollar. The store is small with just a dirty window for light. He doesn’t turn the lights on unless you got money to buy things with, so in the dark we look and see all kinds of things, me and Nenny. Tables with their feet upside down and rows and rows of refrigerators round corners and couches that spin dust in the air when you hit them and a hundred TVs that don’t work probably. Everything is on top of everything so the whole store has skinny aisles to walk through. You can get lost easily. The owner is a black man who doesn’t talk much and sometimes if you didn’t know better you could be in there a long time before your eyes notice a pair of gold glasses floating in the dark. Nenny who thinks she is smart and talks to any old man, asks lots of questions. I never said anything to him except once when I bought the Stature of Liberty for a dime. But Nenny, I hear her asking one time what this is here. And the man says this is a music box, and I turn around quickly thinking he means a pretty box with flowers painted on it, with a ballet actress inside. Only there’s nothing like that where this old man is pointing, just a wood box that’s old and got a big brass record(铜质唱片) in it with holes. Then he starts it up and all sorts of things start happening. It’s like all of a sudden he lets go a million moths(衣蛾) all over the dusty furniture and swan-neck shadows and in our bones. It’s like drops of water. Or like marimbas(木琴) only with a funny little plucked(弹奏) sound to it as if you were running your fingers across the teeth of a metal comb. And then I don’t know why, but I have to turn around and pretend I don’t care about the box so Nenny won’t see how stupid I am. But Nenny, who is stupider, already is asking how much and I can see her fingers going for the quarters in her pants pocket. ―This‖, the old man says shutting the lid, ―this isn’t for sale.‖ 51. What is the junk store like? A. Small and tidy. B. Large and dirty. C. Dark and disorderly. D. Bright and spacious. 52. From the passage we learn that the junk store . A. takes charge of recycling B. sells goods at high price C. attracts lots of customers every day D. mainly sells second-hand necessities 53. Which of the following best describes the character of the black owner? A. means something special to the owner B. was filled with a million moths C. was attractive to young girls D. was sold to Nenny at last B Belgium is divided into three communities. Each one has its own language and traditions. But the people of Belgium are united in their love for Belgian potato fries. The fries are prepared and sold the same way in all areas of the country. The Reuters news service reports that potatoes reached Belgium in the 16th century. But it was not until the 19th century that restaurants and others began selling fried potatoes throughout the country as a separate meal. Recently, a Belgian group launched a campaign aimed at getting the United Nations to recognize the popular treat. The group wants the U. N.’s Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization to place the food on its cultural heritage list.
The UNESCO list recognizes more than 300 objects, beliefs and practices. They include Turkish coffee and the traditional Chinese theater known as Peking opera. The list also includes a dance, the Argentinean tango. UNESCO says the list is ―made up of intangible heritage( 非物质遗产 ) elements that help demonstrate the diversity of heritage and raise awareness about its importance.‖ To appear on the list, each item needs an expression of support from a minister of culture. Belgium has three such ministers – one for each part of the country. Last year, the government of the Dutch-speaking area of Flanders recognized Belgian fried potatoes as an important part of national culture. The French and German-speaking communities are expected to debate the issue this year. Belgian potato fries are traditionally sold in a paper wrapper in a ―fritkot,‖ a small building or shack(棚 屋). There are about 5,000 fritkots in Belgium. That means they are 10 times more common as a percentage of the population as McDonald’s restaurants in the United States. The national organization of fritkot owners says the small, often unfinished buildings are much like Belgium itself. It says these buildings combine the country’s acceptance of disorder with a dislike of structures that all look the same. The group says 95 percent of Belgians visit a fried potato shack at least once a year. 55. We know from the passage that Belgian potato fries . A. are popular among the people of Belgium B. were not sold as a separate meal until the 16th century C. are prepared and sold in various ways throughout the country D. are recognized as a national heritage by the three communities 56. The significance of including food on the UNESCO cultural heritage list might be . A. They exactly represents Belgium’s disorder. B. They are small, simply-decorated buildings. C. They make the whole Belgium look the same. D. They are 10 times more than McDonald’s restaurants in Belgium. 57. Which of the following best describes the underlined word ―fritkots‖ in Para. 6? A. They exactly represents Belgium’s disorder. B. They are small, simply-decorated buildings. C. They make the whole Belgium look the same. D. They are 10 times more than McDonald’s restaurants in Belgium. 58. What can be the best title for the passage? A. Welcome to Belgian Shacks. B. Belgian Potato Fries—a Popular Treat. C. Are Fried Potatoes a Cultural Treasure? D. What’s to be on the Cultural Heritage List? C One of the biggest problems with traveling in space is the distance: The universe is so enormous that our nearest star is 4.24 light years away. Science fiction authors have had to come up with ways around this problem for a long time. In Star Wars, the spaceships could travel faster than light. Star Trek’s special engine ―warp drive‖ was supposed to bend space itself. But there’s another possibility, according to the new film Interstellar: traveling through wormholes. The idea of wormholes was first brought up by physicists Albert Einstein and Nathan in 1935. They
said that there could be ―bridges‖ that connect two different points in space-time. These bridges, or wormholes, would create shortcuts for long journeys across the universe. And a black hole is the mouth of a wormhole. For example, imagine drawing two dots on a piece of paper at each end. If you folded the paper, the two dots would be closer than they were before. This is just a theory, and no wormhole has been discovered to date. British-American director Christopher Nolan, however, has decided to present one on the big screen. In the movie Interstellar, Earth is a dying planet and a space crew takes a journey through wormholes to seek new livable planets. And to make the movie as scientifically accurate as scientifically accurate as possible, the team invited famous American physicist Kip Thorne to work on it as an advisor. Thorne laid out a series of equations (方程式), and the team programmed software that would visualize the wormhole exactly the way that it would look, based on his science. The result was surprising. ―I never expected that,‖ said Thorne to Wired magazine. ―It was just amazing.‖ However, not everything in the film is scientific. As the director himself said in an interview with the Guardian: ―Much of it is, of course, speculation.‖ In the movie, for example, the crew lands on a planet very close to a black hole. This is impossible, according to Tom Whyntie, a physicist at the European Organization for Nuclear Research. ―Being near a black hole tears you apart,‖ Whyntie said to the Telegraph. The gravity at your feet is so much stronger than the gravity at your head that you are pulled into a long, thin line. 59. What is the possible way for peopleto travel in space according to the new film interstellar? A. Using spaceships. B. Bending space itself. C. Traveling faster than light. D. Traveling through wormholes. 60. We learn from the passage that the idea of wormholes . A. was first put into effect by Albert Einstein B. has proved to be a scientific way to travel in space C. is a theory creating shortcuts for long journey across the universe D. is a bridge being built to connect two different points in space-time 61. The underlined word ―speculation‖ in Para. 6 is closest in meaning to ― ‖. A. imagination B. guess C. puzzle D. mystery 62. What does Tom Whyntie’s opinion about the film Insterstellar? A. It is absolutely absurd. B. It may not be as popular as popular as the movie Star Wars. C. It presents some plots not so scientifically accurate. D. It misleads the public over the dangers of wormholes. D For years, robots have helped doctors perform operations with greater safety, speed and exactness than by using hand-controlled instruments. Now, one such machine reduces the time it takes to make dental crowns (牙冠). This procedure can repair can repair a damaged tooth in just about two hours. Years ago, several long visits to the dentist were required to manufacture a dental crown. And between visits, the patient had to wear a temporary crown—a small, hat-like cover that encircles the tooth. During that period a technician prepares a permanent replacement. Since the 1980s, robotic machines have greatly speeded up that procedure. Sitting in the dentist’s chair takes far less time that is once did. Michael Silveus has a dental office in northern Virginia, near Washington, D. C. Hedescribes the time
saved. ―It’s about 12 minutes’ worth of chair time for the patient and the rest of the time, it’s work that’s taking place outside the patient’s mouth.‖ Dr. Silveus and his assistant are preparing a patient’s tooth for a new crown. The drilling inside the patient’s mouth lasts about five minutes. In the past, a plastic material was used to make an impression of the damaged tooth. But now, Dr. Silveus uses a video camera on a pole to inspect the tooth and the surrounding area. Next, a computer takes over the process. It designs the new crown and creates directions for a robotic machine. A small cube (立方体) of porcelain (瓷) is placed between two drills, simlar to the one the dentist uses. The porcelain is no larger than the tooth The high-speed tools break off extra material from the cube, creating a perfectly shaped tooth crown. To harden, the crown must be heated for about 10 minutes. During that process, its color is changed to the color of the patient’s other teeth. Then, the dental crown is ready to be placed permanently in the patient’s mouth. ―It feels amazing. The tooth feels like my tooth.‖ Many people wearing will say the newer procedure is a huge improvement over older methods. But Dr. Silveus says even ths technology may someday become obsolete.‖ The other thing we look forward to is genetic engineering , and eventually cloning, so you can make the crown out of actually enamel (珐琅), just like the patient’s natural teeth are. ‖ For now, Dr. Silveus says his patients are happy to be able to get a new crown in just one visit. 63. what is the correct procedure of making dental crowns nowadays? ①The new crown is heated. ②The drilling inside the mouth takes place. ③The robotic machine makes the new crown. ④The tooth is inspected with a video camera. ⑤The dental crown is placed in the patient’s mouth. ⑥A computer designs the crown and creates directions. A. ④⑥③②①⑤ B. ②④⑥③①⑤ C. ②④③①⑥⑤ D. ④②⑥③①⑤ 64. What can be learnt about the new method? A. Patients are pleased with it. B. The whole procedure is taken over by robots. C. It takes several visits to make dental crowns. D. patients have to spend 20 minutes waiting on chair. 65. The greatest advantage of the newer procedure is that . A. it needs no help of dentists B. it greatly reduces the time C. it requires no temporary crown D. it hardens the original teeth 66. What does the underlined word ―obsolete‖ (Para. 7) mean/ A. Efficient. B. Complex. C. Out-of-date. D. Whith-hot. E Money can’t buy happiness, right? Well, not true. According to a recent article in The Wall Street Journal, over the past few years, new research has given us a much deeper understanding of the relationship between what we earn and how we feel. The results may seem a bit obvious: Yes, people with higher
incomes are, broadly speaking, happier than those who struggle to get by. But the research also shows you have to spend strategically if you expect those bank notes to put a smile on your face. Here are some ways to better spend your money: Buy experiences, not stuff. In a recently published study, Ryan Howell, associate professor of psychology at San Francisco State University in the US, found that when people don’t have much money to spare, they tend to stick to material goods. ―People think that experiences are only going to provide temporary happiness,‖ he told The Wall Street Journal in an interview. ―… but they actually provide both more happiness and more lasting value.‖ Buy lots of little things, rather than one big thing. No matter how much money you spend on something and how special that product is, you will get used to having it over time and it will become just another object. People adapt to having new stuff, and the adaptation is likely to prolong happiness, says an Atlantic article. Buying small things can give us frequent small pleasures that are different each time they occur. Buy what you like. No keeping up with the Joneses. ―There are a lot of reasons someone might buy something … but if the reason is to maximize happiness, the best thing for that person to do is purchase a life experience that is in line with their personality,‖ Howell tells Forbes. Howell recently co-authored a study finding that when people spend money just to project a certain image, it doesn’t bring happiness. Be sure to buy time, too. It’s also important to consider how what you’re buying will affect how you spend your time. For example, that big house in the suburbs may seem like a good idea, but according to The Wall Street Journal, a study by researchers from University of Zurich in Switzerland found that people with longer commutes reported lower overall life satisfaction, all other things being equal. Try giving it away. Elizabeth Dunn, associate professor of psychology at the University of British Columbia in Canada, found that in countries as diverse as Canada, South Africa and Uganda, giving away money consistently made people happier. This was even true when people were giving away even when they themselves were relatively poor. 67. According to the passage, one result of the new research shows that . A. money can’t buy happiness B. the more we earn, the happier we may feel C. the more we spend, the more we may earn D. the more we earn, the harder we are likely to struggle 68. If you expect those bank notes to bring happiness and lasting value, you can buy . A. a gold ear ring B. a pair of shoes C. a big house in the suburbs D. a seven-day travel product 69. The underlined sentence in Para. 5 is closest in meaning to ― ‖. A. Don’t follow suit. B. Leave the others behind. C. Keep pace with the fashion. D. Maximize your happiness. 70. The passage mainly aims to . A. inform us of the importance of money
B. urge us to earn more money to live a happier life C. give suggestions on how to better spend money D. tell us the relationship between money and happiness 第四部分：书面表达（共两节，满分 50 分） 第一节：完成句子（共 10 小题；每小题 2 分，满分 20 分） 阅读下列各小题，根据汉语提示，用句末括号内的英语单词完成句子，并将答案写在答题卡上 的相应题号后。 71.
