Honey-Lover's Helper B About twenty of us had been fortunate enough to receive invitations to a film-studio(影棚)to take part in a crowd-scene. Although our "act" would last only for a short time, we could see quite a number of interesting things. We all stood at the far end of the studio as workmen prepared the scene, setting up trees at the edge of a winding path. Very soon, bright lights were turned on and the big movie-camera was wheeled into position. The director shouted something to the camera operator and then went to speak to the two famous actors nearby. Since it was hot in the studio, it came as a surprise to us to see one of the actors put on a heavy overcoat and start walking along the path. A big fan began blowing tiny white feathers down on him, and soon the trees were covered in "snow". Two more fans were turned on, and a "strong wind" blew through the trees. The picture looked so real that it made us feel cold. The next scene was a complete contrast (对比). The way it was filmed was quite unusual. Pictures in front taken on an island in the Pacific were shown on a glass screen (幕). An actor and actress stood of the scene so that they looked trick like this, palm trees, sandy beaches, as if they were at the water's edge on an island. By a simple and blue, clear skies had been brought into the studio! Since it was our turn next, we were left wondering what scene would be prepared for us. For a full three minutes in our lives we would be experiencing the excitement of being film "stars"! 60. Who is the author? A. A cameraman. B. .A film director. C. A crowd-scene actor. D.

More stars would act in the film. C. The author would leave the studio. D. The next scene would be prepared. C Last night I was driving from Harrisburg to Lewisburg，distance of about eighty miles. It was late. Several times I got stuck behind a slow-moving tuck on a narrow road with a solid white line on my left, and I became increasingly impatient. At one point along an open road, I came to a crossing with a traffic light. I was alone on the road by now, but as I drove near the light, it turned red and I made a stop. I looked left, right and behind me. Nothing. Not a car, no suggestion of car lamps, but there I sat, waiting for the light to change, the only human being for at least a mile in any direction. I started wondering why 1 refused to run the light I was not afraid of being caught, because there was clearly no policeman wound. and there certainly would have been no danger in going through it.. Much later that night, the question of why I'd stopped for that light came back to me. I think I stopped because it's part of a contract(契约)we all have with each other. It's not only the law, but it is an agreement we have, and we taut each other to honor it: we don't go through red lights. Trust is our first inclination(倾向).Doubting others does not seem to be natural to us. The whole construction of our society depends on mutual(相互)trust, not distrust We do what we say we'll do; we show up when we say we'll show up; and we pay when we say we'll pay. We trust each other in these matters, and we're angry or disappointed with the person or organization that breaks the trust we have in them. I was so proud of myself for stopping for the red light that night. 63. Why did the author get impatient while driving?
A. He was lonely on the road. B. He was slowed down by a truck. C. He got tired of driving too long. D. He came across too many traffic lights. 64. What was the author's immediate action when the traffic light turned red? topping still. B. Driving through 让 C. Looking around for other cars. D. Checking out for traffic police. 65. The event made the author strongly believe that A. traffic rules may be unnecessary B. doubting others is human nature C. patience is important to drivers D. a society needs mutual trust 66. Why was the author proud of himself? A He kept his promise. B. He held back his anger. C. He followed his inclination. D. He made a right decision. D Grown-ups are often surprised by how well they remember something they learned as children but have never practiced still swim as well as ever ever since. A man when he gets back who has not had a chance to go swimming for years can in the water. He can get on a bicycle after many years and still ride away. He can play catch and hit a ball as well as his son. A mother who has not thought about the words for years can teach her daughter the poem that begins "Twinkle, twinkle, little star"。remember the story of Cinderella or Goldilocks and the Three Bears. One explanation is the law ofoverlearninrf , which can be stated as follows: Once we have learned something, additional learning trials(尝 试)increase the length of time we will remember it. In childhood we usually continue to practice such skills as swimming, bicycle riding, and playing baseball long after we have learned them. We continue to listen to and remind ourselves of words such as "Twinkle, twinkle, little star" and childhood tales such as Cinderella and Goldilocks. We not only learn but overleam The multinlicatinn tables(乘法口诀表)are an excention to the eeneral rule that we forget rather quickly the things that we learn in school, because they are another of the things we overlearn in childhood. The law of overleaming explains why cramming(突击学习)for an examination. though it may result in a passing grade, is not a satisfactory way to learn a college course. By cramming, a student may learn the subject well enough
to get by on the examination, but he is likely soon to forget almost everything he learned.A little overlearning. on the other hand, is really necessary for one's future development. 67.

Commonly accepted rules. B. The multiplication tables. C. Things easily forgotten. D. School subjects. 71. What is the author's opinion on cramming? A. It leads to failure in college exams. B. It's helpful only in a limited way. C. It's possible to result in poor memory. D. It increases students' learning interest. E Ate you looking for some new and exciting places to take your kids (孩 子) to? Try some of these places: . Visit art muvewns. They offer a variety of activities to excite your kids' interest.

Keep your pets inside as much as you can when the weather is bad．If you have to take them out, stay outside with them．When you're cold enough to go inside, they probably are too．I you must leave them outside for a long time, make sure they have a warm, solid shelter against the
wind, thick bedding, and plenty of non-frozen water. If left alone outside, dogs and cats can be very smart in their search for warm shelter．They can dig into snow banks or hide somewhere．Watch them closely when they are left outdoors, and provide them with shelter of good quality．Keep an eye on your pet's water．Sometimes owners don't realize that a water bowl has frozen and their pet can't get anything to drink．Animals that don't have clean and unfrozen water may drink dirty water outside, which may contain something unhealthy for them. 41．What do we learn about pets from Paragraph 1? A．They are often forgotten by their owners. B．They are used to living outdoors. C．They build their won shelter.

(B) You may think that sailing is a difficult sport, but it is really not hard to learn it．You do not need to be strong．But you need to be quick．And you need to understand a few basic rules about the wind. First, you must ask yourself, “Where is the wind coming from? Is it coming from ahead or behind or from the side?” You must think about this all the time on the boat．The wind direction tells you what to do with the sail. Let's start with the wind blowing from the behind．This means the wind and the boat are going in the same direction． Then you must always keep the sail outside the boat． should be at a It 90° angle (角度) to the boat．Then it will catch the wind best. If the wind is blowing from the side, it is blowing across the boat． this case, you must keep In the sail half way outside the boat．It should be at a 45° angle to the boat．It needs to be out far enough to catch the wind, but it shouldn't flap (摆动)．It shouldn't look like on a flagpole．If it is flapping, it is probably out too far, and the boat will slow down. Sailing into the wind is not possible．If you try, the sail will flap and the boat will stop．You may want to go in that direction． is possible, but you can't go in a straight line． must go first It You in one direction and then in another．This is called tacking．When you are tacking, you must always keep the sail inside the boat. 45．What should you consider first while sailing?

(C) Facial expressions carry meaning that is determined by situations and relationships．For example, in American culture (文化) the smile is in general an expression of pleasure．Yet it also has other uses．A woman's smile at a police officer does not carry the same meaning as the smile she gives to a young child．A smile may show love or politeness．It can also hide true feelings．It often causes confusion (困惑) across cultures．For example, many people in Russia smiling at strangers in public to be unusual and even improper． many Americans smile freely at strangers Yet in public places (although this is less common in big cities)．Some Russians believe that Americans smile in the wrong places; some Americans believe that Russians don't smile enough ． In Southeast Asian culture, a smile is frequently used to cover painful feelings．Vietnamese people may tell a sad story but end the story with a smile. Our faces show emotions (情感), but we should not attempt to “read” people from another culture as we would “read” someone from our own culture． fact that members of one culture The do not express their emotions as openly as do members of another does not mean that they do not experience emotions．Rather, there are cultural differences in the amount of facial expressions permitted．For example, in public and in formal situations many Japanese do not show their emotions as freely as Americans do．When with friends, Japanese and Americans seem to show their emotions similarly. It is difficult to generalize about Americans and facial expressiveness because of personal and cultural differences in the United States．People from certain cultural backgrounds in the United States seem to be more facially expressive than others． key is to try not to judge people whose The ways of showing emotion are different．If we judge according to our own cultural habits, we may make the mistake of “reading” the other person incorrectly. 49．What does the smile usually mean in the U.S.? A．Love. B．Politeness. C．Joy. D．Thankfulness. 50．The author mentions the smile of the Vietnamese to prove that smile can ___ .

(D) ADDIS ABABA, Ethiopia – One of the world's most famous fossils (化石) – the 3.2 million-year-old Lucy skeleton (骨骼) unearthed in Ethiopia in 1974 – will go on an exhibition tour abroad for the first time in the United States, officials said Tuesday. Even the Ethiopian public has only seen Lucy twice． The Lucy on exhibition at the Ethiopian National Museum in the capital, Addis Ababa, is a replica while the real remains are usually locked in a secret storeroom．A team from the Museum of National Science in Houston, Texas, spent four years discussing with the Ethiopians for the U.S．tour, which will start in Houston next September. “Ethiopia's rich culture of both the past and today, is one of the best kept secrets in the world,” said Joel Bartsch, director of the Houston museum. The six-year tour will also go to Washington, New York, Denver and Chicago．Officials said six other U.S．cities may be on the tour．But they said plans had not been worked out. Travelling with Lucy will be 190 other fossils. Lucy, her name taken from a Beatles song that played in a camp the night of her discovery, is part of the skeleton of what was once a 312 -foot-tall ape-man (猿人). 53．The author writes this text mainly to ___ . A．introduce a few U.S．museums B．describe some research work C．discuss the value of an ape-man D．report a coming event 54．What does the words “a replica” in Paragraph 2 refer to? A．A painting of the skeleton. B．A photograph of Lucy C．A copy of the skeleton. D．A written record of Lucy. 55．How many cities has Lucy's U.S．tour plan already included? A．Four. B．Five. C．Six. D．Eleven. 56．What was the skeleton named after? A．An ape-man. B．A song. C．A singer. D．A camp. (E) Make Up Your Mind to Succeed Kind-hearted parents have unknowingly left their children defenseless against failure．The generation born between 1980 and 2001 grew up playing sports where scores and performance were played down because “everyone's winter.” And their report cards sounded more positive (正面的) than ever before．As a result, Stanford University professor Carol Dweck, PhD, calls them “the overpraised generation.” Dweck has been studying how people deal with failure for 40 years．Her research has led her to find out two clearly different mind-sets that have a great effect on how we react to it．Here's how they work: A fixed mind-set is grounded in the belief that talent (才能) is genetic – you're a born artist, point guard, or numbers person．The fixed mind-set believes it's sure to succeed without much effort and regards failure as personal shame．When things get difficult, it's quick to blame, lie, and even stay away from future difficulties. On the other hand, a growth mind-set believes that no talent is entirely heaven-sent and that effort and learning make everything possible． Because the ego (自尊) isn't on the line as much, the
growth mind-set sees failure as a chance rather than shame． When faced with a difficulty, it's quick to rethink, change and try again．In fact, it enjoys this experience. We are all born with growth mind-sets．(Otherwise, we wouldn't be able to live in the world.) But parents, teachers, and instructors often push us into fixed mind-sets by encouraging certain actions and misdirecting praise．Dweck's book, Mind-set: The New Psychology of Success, and online instructional program explain this in depth．But she says there are many little things you can start doing today to make sure that your children, grandchildren and even you are never defeated by failure. 57．What does the author think about the present generation? A．They don't do well at school. B．They are often misunderstood. C．They are eager to win in sports. D．They are given too much praise. 58．A fixed mind-set person is probably one who ___ . A．doesn't want to work hard B．cares a lot about personal safety C．cannot share his ideas with others D．can succeed with the help of teachers 59．What does the growth mind-set believe? A．Admitting failure is shameful. B．Talent comes with one's birth. C．Scores should be highly valued. D．Getting over difficulties is enjoyable. 60．What should parents do for their children based on Dweck's study? A．Encourage them to learn from failures. B．Prevent them from making mistakes. C．Guide them in doing little things. D．Help them grow with praise. 第二节 根据对话内容，从对话后的选项中选出能填入空白处的最佳选项，并在答题卡 上将该项涂黑。选项中有两项为多余选项。(每小题 1 分) Daughter：Dad．You love me, don't you?
