A new report on 3,375 students aged from 10 to 18 in seven Chinese cities found that 38 percent of them believe they use the Internet often. While most of them get useful information and use the Internet to help in their studies, some are not using it in a good way. In order to help young people use the Internet in a good way, a textbook on good Internet behavior has started to be used in some Shanghai middle schools this term. The book uses real examples to teach students all about good ways of using the Internet. The book gives useful advice such as it’s good to read news or find helpful information to study. Some students also make online friends. But if you are meeting a friend offline, make sure your parents know. Teachers and parents all think the book is of great help. A teacher said the book would be a guide for teens using the Internet. She believes it will keep students away from bad sites. “Many students are using the Internet without guidance from their parents,” she said. “The book will teach students how to be a good person in the online world.” 21. The textbook on good Internet behavior used in Shanghai middle schools mainly tells us ____. A. how to use the Internet correctly B. how to study using the Internet C. why we should use the Internet D. how to get help from others 22. According to the passage, teenagers are NOT encouraged to ______.
A. read online news B. use the Internet to help them study C. find useful information online D. meet a friend off line without letting their parents know 23. From this passage we know that _______. A. less and less helpful information can be found online B. schools and teachers pay no attention to students’ use of the Internet C. the teachers and parents all think highly of the book on good Internet behavior D. more and more students have given up visiting Web sites B When I was six, Dad brought home a dog one day, who was called “Brownie”. My brothers and I all loved Brownie and did different things with her. One of us would walk her, another would feed her, then there were baths, playing catch and many other games. Brownie, in return, loved each and every one of us. One thing that most touched my heart was that she would go to whoever was sick and just be with them. We always felt better when she was around. One day, as I was getting her food, she chewed up (咬破) one of Dad’s shoes, which had to be thrown away in the end. I knew Dad would be mad and I had to let her know what she did was wrong. When I looked at her and said, “Bad girl,” she looked down at the ground and then went and hid. I saw a tear in her eyes. Brownie turned out to be more than just our family pet. She went everywhere with us. People would stop and ask if they could pet her. Of course she’d let anyone pet her. She was just the most lovable dog. There were many times when we’d be out walking and a small child would come over and pull on her hair. She never barked (吠) or tried to get away. Funny thing is she would smile. This frightened people because they thought she was showing her teeth. Far from the truth, she loved everyone. Now many years have passed since Brownie died of old age. I still miss the days when she was with us. 24. Brownie would _________ when someone was ill in the family. A. look at them sadly B. keep them company C. play games with them D. smile at them gently 25. We can infer from Paragraph 2 that Brownie __________. A. would eat anything when hungry B. felt sorry for her mistake C. loved playing with shoes D. disliked the author’s dad 26. Why does the author say that Brownie was more than just a pet of THEIR family? A. She was treated as a member of the family. B. She smiled at anyone she disliked. C. She was loved by everybody she met. D. She was raised and grew up in the family. 27. Which of the following best describes Brownie? A. Cruel. B. Stubborn. C. Handsome. D. Caring. C There are lots of attractions in St. Petersburg. If you’re short of time to visit all of them, or if you just want to make sure to hit the highlights（最精彩的部分）, the following are the top must–see sights in St. Petersburg. 1. The Hermitage Museum The Hermitage Museum is one of the most important sights to see for any visitor to St. Petersburg. There you can see lots of different paintings painted by the old masters. Prepare to come face to face with many of the western classical artists. 2. Kizhi Island Kizhi Island is an open-air museum of wooden buildings from the Karelia region of Russia. These impressive structures are made without any nails（钉子）. Can you imagine how the wood fits together? Come and see for yourself! 3. Peterhof Peterhof is as beautiful as it is fun. You’ll be charged for admission（门票）, but
if you go to Peterhof when the fountains （喷泉） are working － during the day in summer －the admission will be worth it. 4. Church of the Savior on Spilled Blood Love it or hate it, Church of the Savior on Spilled Blood in St. Petersburg is a real must-see sight. This beautiful building will truly surprise you, and the paintings inside the church will make you say “Wow!” 5. The Bronze Horseman Statue The so-called Bronze Horseman is a part of Russian culture and is a symbol of St. Petersburg. Made famous by Alexander Pushkin, this statue of Peter the Great sitting on his horse truly shows Peter the Great’s influence on the Russian idea of greatness. 28. If you are interested in paintings, you’d better go to ______________. A. The Hermitage Museum and Kizhi Island B. The Bronze Horseman Statue and Kizhi Island C. Kizhi Island and Church of the Savior on Spilled Blood D. The Hermitage Museum and Church of the Savior on Spilled Blood 29. What can we learn about Kizhi Island? A. Kizhi Island is an indoor museum of wooden buildings. B. Visitors are not allowed to find nails in the structures there. C. The wooden buildings there are connected without any nails. D. No one knows how to fit the wooden structures together. 30. We can learn from the text that ______________. A. visitors can visit Peterhof free of charge B. The Hermitage Museum has lots of modern western arts C. the fountains in Peterhof can be seen by visitor s all year round D. The Bronze Horseman Statue is a symbol of St. Petersburg 31. The author wrote the text to ______________. A. attract tourists to visit St. Petersburg B. show the wonderful history of Russia C. persuade artists to go to St. Petersburg D. introduce the famous buildings of Russia D It is natural that young people are often uncomfortable when they are with their parents. They say that their parents don’t understand them. They often think that their parents are out of touch with modern ways, that they are too serious and too strict with their children, and that they seldom give their children a free hand. It is true that parents often find it difficult to win their children’s trust and they tend(倾向) to forget how they themselves felt when young. For example, young people like to act on the spot without much thinking. It is one of their ways to show that they have grown up and they can face any difficult situation. Old people worry more easily. Most of them plan things in advance, at least in the back of their minds, and do not like their plans to be upset by something unexpected. When you want your parents to let you do something, you will have better success if you ask before you really start doing it. Young people often make their parents angry with their choices in clothes, in entertainment and in music. But they do not mean to cause any trouble; it is just that they feel cut off from the older people’s world, into which they have not yet been accepted. That’s why young people want to make a new culture of their own, and if their parents don’t like their music or entertainment or clothes or their way of speech, this will make the young people extremely happy. Sometimes you are so proud of yourself that you do not want your parents to say “yes” to what you do. All you want is to be left alone and do what you like. It is natural enough, after being a child for so many years, when you were c ompletely under your parents’ control.
If you prefer to control your life, you’d better win your parents over and try to get them to understand you. If your p arents see that you have a high sense of responsibility, they will certainly give you the right to do what you want to do. 32. According to the text, young people prefer to ______. A. ask for advice before they really start to do anything B. think in the same way as their parents do C. be very strict with themselves D. do things without thinking carefully ahead 33. Why do young people like to have clothes, entertainment and music in their way? A. Because they want to try on something new and look different from the older. B. Because they try to get their parents to be proud of them. C. Because they want to give their parents a big surprise. D. Because they want to test whether they are cleverer than old people. 34. According to the text, young people want to make a new culture of their own, because_____. A. they feel they are cleverer than old pe ople B. they do not want to get into trouble with their parents C. they don’t feel they belong to the world of the old people D. they want to show the new is better than the old 35. If a young man intends to control his own life, it’s better for him to _______. A. do everything according to his own wish B. hold himself responsible for everything he does C. do everything beyond his parents’ control D. do everything the way his parents do 第二节（共 5 小题；每小题 2 分，满分 10 分） 根据短文内容，从短文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。 Why is pink or purple a col or for girls and blue or brown for boys? 36 To the Egyptians, green was a color that represented the hope and joy of spring, while for Muslims, it means heaven. Red is a symbol of good luck in many cultures. 37 For many nations, blue is a symbol of protection and religious beliefs. Greek people often wear a blue necklace hoping to protect themselves against evils (灾祸). People’s choice of colors is also influenced by their bodies’ reactions (反应) toward them. 38 It has the ability to reduce pain and relax people both mentally and physically. People who work in green environment have been found to have fewer stomachaches. Red can cause a person’s blood pressure to rise and increase people’s appetites(食 欲 ) . 39 Similarly, many commercial websites will have a red “Buy Now” button because red is a color that easily catches a person’s eye. 40 Unlike red, blue can cause people to lose appetite. So if you want to eat less, some suggest that eating from blue plates can help. The next time you are deciding on what to wear or what color to decorate your room, think about the color carefully. A. Green is said to be the most restful color. B. Different colors have different effects on people. C. In China, children are given money in a red envelope to bring good fortune in the New Year. D.
