Ⅲ. 阅读（共两节，满分 40 分） 第一节 阅读理解（共 15 小题；每小题 2 分，满分 30 分） 阅读下面短文，掌握其大意，然后从 41—55 各题所给的四个选项（A、B、C、D）中， 选出最佳选项，并在答题卡上将该项涂黑。 (A) Although April did not bring us the rains we all hoped for, and although the Central Valley doesn’t generally experience the sound and lightning that can go with those
rains, it’s still important for parents to be able to answer the youthful questions about thunder and lightning. The reason these two wonders of nature are so difficult for many adults to explain to children is that they are not very well understood by adults themselves. For example, do you know that the lightning we see flashing down to the earth from a cloud is actually flashing up to a cloud from the earth? Our eyes trick us into thinking we see a downward motion when it’s actually the other way round. But then, if we believed only what we think and we see, we’d still insist that the sun rises in the morning and sets at night. Most lightning flashes take place inside a cloud, and only a relative few can be seen jumping between two clouds or between earth and a cloud. But, with about 2,000 thunderstorms taking place above the earth every minute of the day and night, there’ s enough activity to produce about 100 lightning strikes on earth every second. Parents can use thunder and lightning to help their children learn more about the world around them. When children understand that the light of lightning flashing reaches their eyes almost at the same moment, but the sound of the thunder takes about 5 seconds to travel just one mile, they can begin to time the interval(间 隔) between the flash and the crash to learn how close they are to the actual spark(闪 光). 41. According to the author, in the area of the Central Valley, ___________. A. rains usually come without thunder and lightning B. it is usually dry in April C. children pay no attention to the two natural wonders D. parents are not interested in thunder and lightning 42. We believe that lightning is a downward motion because ___________. A. we were taught so by our parents from our childhood B. we are taken in by our sense of vision C. it is a common natural sight D. it is a truth proved by science 43. What is TRUE about lightning according to the passage? A. Only a small number of lightning flashes occur on earth. B. Lightning travels 5 times faster than thunder. C. Lightning flashes usually jump from one cloud to another. D. There are far more lightning strikes occurring on earth than we can imagine. 44. The underlined word “ activity ” is most closely related to the word(s)___________. A. “cloud” B. “lightning strikes” C. “lightning flashes” D. “thunderstorms” 45. It can be concluded from the passage that____________. A. we should not believe what we see or hear B. things moving downward are more noticeable C. people often have wrong ideas about ordinary phenomena (现象) D. adults are not as good as children in observing certain natural phenomena (B)
Most likely, you aren’t the family breadwinner. But doing a small job or getting a weekly allowance(零花钱) would put some money in your pocket. For kids and grown-ups alike, money is easy to spend. If you aren’t careful, it can be going in no time. Being responsible with your money is an important skill to learn — and the sooner you start the better. Whether you are tracking your spending or saving for something special, creating a budget(预算) can help you deal with your expenses and plan for the future. All you need are paper and a pencil — and some self-control. First, take a look at our sample monthly budget. Then, use a separate sheet of paper to plan your own. In the first two columns(栏), list your sources(来源) of income and how much you expect to earn from them. In the third and fourth columns, list what you expect to spend your money on and the amount. The left-hand total should be more than or equal to the right-hand total. If it is, you have an effective budget. Budgets are not complex, but sticking to them can be tough. When planning your budget, be realistic about your expenses. If you know that you drop $18 at a movie, don’ t write $12 in that space simply because you wish you were spending less. If you are eyeing a big purchase, such as a $150 skateboard, spend less and save more until you have the total amount. No matter how attractive it may be, avoid spending your savings. One day, you will thank yourself!

50. The passage mainly tells us ________. A. the importance of making a budget B. how to make a budget C. how to form good habits D. how to spend money (C) A study of art history might be a good way to learn more about a culture than is possible to learn in general history classes. Most typical history courses concentrate on politics, economics, and war. But art history focuses on much more than this because art reflects not only the political values of a people, but also religious beliefs, emotions, and psychology. In addition, information about the daily activities of our ancestors — or of people very different from our own — can be provided by art. In short, art expresses the essential qualities of a time and a place, and a study of it clearly offers us a deeper understanding than can be found in most history books. In history books, objective(客观的) information about the political life of a country is presented; that is, facts about politics are given, but opinions are not expressed. Art, on the other hand, is subjective(主观的): it reflects emotions and opinions. The great Spanish painter Francisco Goya was perhaps the first truly “ political ” artist. In his well-known painting The Third of May, 1808, he criticized the Spanish government for its misuse of power over people. Over a hundred years later, symbolic images were used in Pablo Picasso’s Guernica to express the horror of war. Meanwhile, on another continent, the powerful paintings of Diego Rivera, Jose Clemente Orozco, and David Alfaro Siqueiros — as well as the works of Alfredo Ramos Martinez — depicted these Mexican artists’ deep anger and sadness about social problems. In the same way, art can reflect a culture’s religious beliefs. For hundreds of years in Europe, religious art was almost the only type of art that existed. Churches
and other religious buildings were filled with paintings that depicted people and stories from the Bible. Although most people couldn’t read, they could still understand biblical stories in the pictures on church walls. By contrast, one of the main characteristics of art in the Middle East was (and still is) its absence of human and animal images. This reflects the Islamic belief that statues are unholy(不圣洁的). 51. More can be learned about a culture from a study of art history than general history because art history ____________. A. shows us the religious beliefs and emotions of a people in addition to political values B. provides us with information about the daily activities of people in the past C. gives us an insight into the essential qualities of a time and a place D. all of the above 52. Art is subjective(主观的) in that _________. A. a personal and emotional view of history is presented through it B. it can easily rouse our anger or sadness about social problems C. it will find a ready echo in our hearts D. both B and C 53. Which of the following statements is true according to the passage? A. Unlike Francisco Goya, Pablo Picasso and several Mexican artists expressed their political opinions in their paintings. B. History books often reveal the compilers’ political views. C. Religious art remained in Europe for centuries the only type of art because most people regarded the Bible as the Holy Book. D. In the Middle East even today you can hardly find any human and animal figures on palaces or other buildings. 54. The passage mainly discusses __________. A. the difference between general history and art history B. the making of art history C. what we can learn from art D. the influence of artists on art history 55. It may be concluded from this passage that __________. A. Islamic artists have had to create architectural decoration with images of flowers or geometric forms B. history teachers are more objective than artists C. it is more difficult to study art history than general history D. people and stories from the Bible were painted on churches and other buildings in order to popularize the Bible 第二节 信息匹配（共 5 小题；每小题 2 分，满分 10 分） 下面是一篇应用文及其应用场合的信息， 请阅读下列应用文和相关信息， 并按照要求匹配信 息。 首先，请阅读下列广告： A.

Compared with other forms of writing, it is shorter and takes less time. It can help us to develop the habit of thinking in English. If we stick to this practice, gradually we’ll learn how to express ourselves in English. In keeping a diary in English, we certainly run up against a lot of difficulties. In the first place, it often happens that we have trouble finding appropriate words and phases to give expression to our mind. Secondly, there are many idiomatic（习语的；惯用 的）ways of saying things in Chinese. And it is extremely hard for us to put them into English properly. Surely, there are some other roadblocks we may come across in keeping a diary in English. As far as I’m concerned, my suggestion is that we should always have a notebook and a Chinese-English dictionary within easy reach. Whenever something beats us, we can first put it down in our notebook and then consult our dictionary. We can also turn to our English teacher for help, if necessary. In short, I believe that it is of great use to keep a diary in English for the development of our writing skills. [写作内容] 概括短文的内容要点，该部分的词数约 30 词； 就“记日记的作用”这个主题发表你的看法，至少包含以下的内容要点，该部分的词数约 120 词； ① 要用英语思维，最好写英语日记； ② 经常用英语记日记，等于天天在练笔； ③ 你对用英语写日记有什么看法？为什么？ [写作要求] 1. 你可以使用实例或其它论述方法支持你的论点，也可以参照阅读材料的 内容，但不要抄袭阅读材料中的句子。 2. 作文中不能出现真实姓名和学校名称。 [评分标准] 概括准确，语言规范，内容合适，篇章连贯。

It is good / suitable for growing rice in the south as it is cool and wet in winter, hot and humid in summer. In the north, wheat is mainly grown in this area because it is cold and dry in winter, hot and rainy in summer. The western part of China, dry with less rain all the year round, is not good / suitable for growing crops, but in some places varieties of fruit are grown / produced. And the eastern part enjoys plenty of rain most of the year, so crops grow very well there. 第二节 读写任务（共 1 小题；满分 25 分） Keeping a diary can improve our English. It helps us form the habit of English thinking and express ourselves. When we come across difficulties like choosing proper words, and changing Chinese idioms into English, we can turn to references. To master the English language, we’ try our best to think in English when listening, ll speaking, reading and writing; to reach the goal, I believe it is better to keep diaries in English regularly and practice the language. Keeping the English diary means practicing English every day. In my opinion, keeping a diary in English is one of the effective methods to improve English writing skills. The diary is short and small, time saving; we are free to set down what’s on inside and outside ourselves. Unconsciously we can use English freely and effectively.
