Some time ago a test 17 (give) in the United Sates. Those tests included people of different 18 (age) from 12 to 83. During the experiment, these people were given all kinds of breakfasts, and sometimes they got no breakfast at all. Special tests were set up to see 19 well their bodies worked and when they had eaten 20 certain kind of breakfast. The results show the fact 21 if a person eats a proper breakfast, he or she will work with better effect than if he or she has no breakfast. This fact appears to be 22 (especial) true if a person works 23 his brains. For example, if a student eats fruit, eggs, bread and milk before 24 to school, he will learn more quickly and listen with 25__________ (much) attention in class. Ⅲ 阅读（共两节，满分 50 分） 第一节 阅读理解（共 20 小题；每小题 2 分，满分 40 分） 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 A The zebra belongs to the horse family. One of nature’s great mysteries is why the zebra has stripes (条纹). One theory is that the stripes help the zebra cool down. On hot days the black stripes get a lot hotter than the white area of the zebra and under the black stripes there are special layers of fat for protection. Hot air then rises off the black stripes, forcing colder air down around the white areas, cooling the zebra down. This, however, is just a kind of theory. The stripes can also confuse predators（食肉动物，掠夺者） when zebras stay with other animals in great numbers. Zebras have excellent hearing and eyesight and can run at speeds of up to 56 kilometers per hour. They also have a powerful kick that can cause serious injury to a predator, like a lion, or an African wild dog. Usually the lead male of the herd stays at the back of the group to defend against predators if necessary, while the females and youngsters escape danger. Zebras are herbivores that feed only on plants and live mostly by eating grasses, although they also might eat a bit on the leaves and stems(茎) of bushes. They eat grasses for many hours each day, using their strong teeth. Spending so much time chewing wears the zebras’ teeth down, so their teeth keep growing all their lives. As the dry season arrives and the grasses die back, zebra herds travel to find more food and water holes for drinking. Most zebras have no specific territories. They travel from place to place, never staying in one area very long. 26．It can be inferred from the first paragraph that __________. . A．there are different opinions about why the zebra has stripes. B．the black stripes help the zebra live through cold days C．the zebra can be easily attacked by predators
D．the zebra always travels with other animals 27．According to the passage, herbivores are animals that _____. A. have specific territories B. only eat plants C. kill and eat other animals D. live in groups 28．The zebra has strong teeth all their lives because their teeth ______> A. only chew soft grasses B. are used all day C. are always growing D. are kept clean 29．Which of the following statements about zebras is TRUE? A．They have poor eyesight and hearing. B. A lion can get injured by a kick by a zebra’s kick. C. They can run 56 miles per hour. D. They usually stay in one area all their lives. 30. Which of the following TV programs might the passage be adapted for? A. Hobbies & Leisure B. Everyday Tips C. Digital Stadium D. Discovery B The American book Who Moved My Cheese has been a bestseller all over the world. It teaches people how to face changes in their lives. Now its author Spence Johnson has written a book just for teens. The book tells us that when facing change in our lives, like a new school or new friends, don’t be afraid. Instead, use this change to make a better life. The book gives an example of a change at school. A school is changing from having two terms to three terms because there are too many students. Several teens are talking about this. Most of them are unhappy and worried. But Chris is not. He laughs and tells a story about two mice, two “little people” and some cheese. The four are in a maze looking for the cheese. Here, cheese means something important in life, like moving to a new class or getting into college. But they find the cheese is gone. The mice realize that they can’t change what has happened and have to find more cheese. This means finding different dreams. The little people, however, can’t do this. They are afraid of change so they find no cheese. After Chris finishes the story, the friends understand one thing: to get more cheese, move in a new direction quickly. His friends understand how this can be used in the changes all teens face, such as doing well at school or having good relationships or just feeling good about yourself. 31. The book Who Moved My Cheese is _________. A. written all over the world B. read across the world C. sold only in America D. loved only by teens 32. What does the text mainly discuss? A. Never change in our life B. Change when you like to do C. Change with the changes D. Pay attention to the changes. 33. The underlined word “four” （paragraph 3）refers to ______. A. Mice and little people B. Students C. Cheese D. Readers 34. In our lives, we should learn from _________.
A. mice B. little people C. Chris D. Spence Johnson 35. If we read the book Who Moved My Cheese, we may mainly learn ________. A. how the mice move cheese B. how we can find more cheese in our life C. what we should do when facing changes in our lives D. how we can get well with others C Mr. Lang worked in a factory. As a driver, he was busy but he was paid much. His wife was an able woman and did all the housework. When he came back, she took good care of him and he never did anything at home. So he had enough time when he had a holiday. A few friends of his liked gambling(赌博) and he learned it soon. So he was interested in it and hardly forgot anything except gambling. He lost all his money and later he began to sell the television, watches and so on. His wife told him not to do it but he didn’t listen to her. She had to tell the police. He and his friends were punished for it. And he was hardly sent away. After he came out of lockup(拘留所), he hated her very much and the woman had to leave him. It was New Year’s Day. Mr. Lang didn’t go to work. He felt lonely and wanted to gamble again. He called his friends and they came soon. But they were afraid the police would come. He told his five-year-old son to go to find out if there were the policemen outside. They waited for a long time and didn’t think the police would come and began to gamble. Suddenly opened the door and in came a few policemen. “I saw there weren’t any policemen outside, daddy,” said the boy, “so I went to the crossing and asked some to come.” 36. Mr. Lang was paid much because _______. A. he was a driver B. he had a lot of work to do C. he worked in a factory D. he had worked there for a long time 37. Mrs. Lang did all housework because _______. A. she couldn’t find any work B. her husband spent all time in gambling C. she thought her husband was tired D. she wouldn’t stop her husband gambling 38. _______, so he was put into lockup. A. Mr. Lang didn’t help his wife at home B. Mr. Lang often gambled C. Mr. Lang was late for work D. Mr. Lang wasn’t polite to the police 39. The woman had to leave Mr. Lang because _______. A. he didn’t love her any longer B. he wouldn’t stop gambling C. he had been put into lockup D. he was hardly sent away by the factory
40. Which of the following is right? A. The boy hoped his father to be put into lockup again. B. The boy hoped his mother to come back. C. The boy hoped his father to stop gambling soon. D. The boy thought his father needed some policemen. D It’s easy to observe an athlete like Tiger Woods and feel like he’s from another planet. He has won 14 major tournament(锦标赛) titles and about $122 million in prize money and ads. He also has a happy family. It seems that he is too perfect to be one of us. But Woods has more in common with you than you might think. Woods’ parents — particularly his father — set high expectations for him when he was a child. Before Earl Woods’ death in 2006, he told Golf magazine, “My purpose in raising Tiger was not to raise a golfer. I wanted to raise a good person.” By age two, Woods was already swinging(挥舞) a golf club. But once he entered school, Woods’ father was careful to send the message that school work came first. Woods wasn’t allowed to practice until his homework was done. When Woods finally reached the professional tour, his father continued to expect a lot of him. “Tiger will do more than any other man in history to change the course of human. The world is just getting a taste of his power,” he said in 1996. Clearly, Earl Woods had great expectations of his son. In this way, Tiger Woods is actually like a lot of us. Many of us feel a similar pressure to make our parents proud. When this happens, it’s easy to let that pressure overwhelm(压倒) us. In a perfect world, we would all grow up to be Tiger Woods-like successes in our own fields. But that isn’t possible. There are many things that we can’t control in this life, despite our best efforts. There is, however, one thing that we can do: we can try to be a “good person”, as Earl Woods asked his son to do. 41. Which of the following is NOT mentioned in the first paragraph? A. The number of tournament titles Tiger Woods has won. B. The family members of Tiger Woods. C. The money Tiger Woods has made in prize money and ads. D. The impression that Tiger Woods leaves on us. 42. According to the passage, which of the following statements about Tiger Woods is TRUE? A. Tiger Woods is too perfect to be one of us. B. Tiger Woods wasn’t allowed to play golf after class. C. Tiger Woods did very well in golf as a child. D. Tiger Woods didn’t like playing golf when he was a child. 43. We can learn from the passage that Tiger Woods is under pressure to ______ just like many of us. A. get high marks in the exam B. make his parents proud C. change the course of human
D. try to be a good person 44. We can infer from the passage that ______. A. Tiger Woods has a happy family B. Tiger Woods’ mother didn’t set high expectations for him C. Tiger Woods has changed the course of human D. Tiger Woods’ father plays an important role on his road to success 45. The author may agree all the following statements EXCEPT that ______. A. it is possible for us all to grow up to be Tiger Woods-like successes B. Earl Woods had great expectations of his son C. Tiger Woods has more in common with us than we might think D. we can try to be a “good person” 第二节：信息匹配（共 5 小题；每小题 2 分，满分 10 分） 阅读下列应用文及相关信息， 并按照要求匹配信息。 请在答题卡上将对应题号的相应选项字 母涂黑。(选 E 涂 AB,选 F 涂 AC) 首先，请阅读下列关于报纸信息的介绍： A.
