第一节（共 15 小题：每小题 2 分，满分 30 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，并在答题卡上将 该项涂黑。
The Enigma (谜）of Beauty The search for beauty spans centuries and continents. Paintings of Egyptians dating back over 4, 000 years show both men and women painting their nails and wearing makeup. In 18th-century France, wealthy noblemen wore large wigs (假发）of long, white hair to make themselves attractive. Today, people continue to devote a lot of time and money to their appearance. There is at least one good reason for the desire to be attractive: beauty is power. Studies suggest that good-looking people make more money, get called on more often in class, and are regarded as friendlier. But what exactly is beauty? It's difficult to describe it clearly, and yet we know it when we see it. And our awareness of it may start at a very early age. In one set of studies, six-month-old babies were shown a series of photographs. The faces on the pictures had been rated for attractiveness by a group of college students. In the studies, the babies spent more time looking at the attractive faces than the unattractive ones. The idea that even babies can judge appearance makes perfect sense to many researchers. In studies by psychologists, men consistently showed a preference for women with larger eyes, fuller lips, and a smaller nose and chin while women prefer men with large shoulders and a narrow waist. According to scientists, the mind unconsciously tells men and women that these well-being. Not everyone thinks the same way, however. “Our hardwiredness can be changed by all sorts of expectations —mostly cultural,” says C. Loring Brace, an anthropologist at
traits —the full lips, clear skin, strong shoulders —equal health and genetic
the University of Michigan. What is considered attractive in one culture might not be in another. Look at most Western fashion magazines: the women on the pages are thin. But is this “perfect” body type for women worldwide? Scientists' answer is no; what is considered beautiful is subjective and varies around the world. They found native peoples in southeast Peru preferred shapes regarded overweight in Western cultures. For better or worse, beauty plays a role in our lives. But it is extremely difficult to describe exactly what makes one person attractive to another. Although there do seem to be certain physical traits considered universally appealing, it is also true that beauty does not always keep to a single, uniform standard. Beauty really is, as the saying goes, in the eye of the beholder. 21. People's ideas about beauty ________. A. have existed since ancient times can be easily described C. have little influence on a person's success are based upon strict standard 22. In Paragraph 3, the babies in the study ________. A. were rated for their appearance B. were entered in a beauty contest C. were shown photos of a group of college students D. were able to tell attractive faces from unattractive ones 23. The underlined word “traits” in Paragraph 4 probably means ________. A. qualities B. D. standards measurements C. D. B.
24. We can learn from the passage that ________. A. the ideas of beauty vary as people grow up B. the search for beauty is rooted in lack of confidence C. the standards for beauty are based on scientific researches D. the understanding of beauty depends on cultural backgrounds
In the Middle Ages in Europe, theater was an important part of civic, economic and religious life. During this period after the fall of Roman civilization, many cities were destroyed. Southern and Western Europe, famous for its agriculture, became increasingly more agricultural. After several hundred years, many towns appeared again. The Roman Catholic Church took over religion, education and politics. What remained of theater was mostly on the Greek and Roman performing arts. Theater was reborn as liturgical（礼拜式的）dramas. It was written in Latin and dealing with biblical（圣经）stories which would be performed by church members. Then there came local dramas spoken in common language not Latin. They were more wonderful one-act dramas taking place in town squares or other parts of the city. There were three types of local dramas. Mystery or cycle plays were short dramas based on biblical stories organized into historical cycles. Miracle plays dealt with the lives of the great. Morality （道德的） plays taught a lesson through characters standing for good or bad qualities. Secular plays in this period existed, but religious drama in the Middle Ages is mostly remembered today. As the Middle Ages ended, the number of religious theatres became small as the church weakened and more secular qualities won over religious theaters. 25. According to the passage, what does "secular plays"mean here? A. Plays that deal with the lives of the great. C. Plays based on biblical stories. D. Plays that are not connected with the church. 26. Why did religious theatres become less important as the Middle Ages came to an end? A. People were not interested in them any longer. B. The church was not as important as what it had been. C. People liked new plays. D. The stories of religious theatres were outdated.
B. Plays that taught a lesson.
27. According to the passage, why did religious theatres take over in the Middle Ages? A. People preferred religious theatres to other ones. B. There were no other types of theatres. C. The church played an important part in people’s life. D. The quality of religious theatres was better than that of other theatres. 28. What would be the best title for the passage? A. European dramas Religious dramas C. Religious theatres in the Middle Ages D. Secular dramas in the Middle Ages B.
There are two types of people in the world. Although they have equal degree of health and wealth and other comforts of life, one becomes happy and the other becomes unhappy.
This arises from the different ways in which they consider things, persons, events and the resulting effects upon their minds. People who are to be happy fix their attention on the convenience of things: the pleasant parts of conversation, the well prepared dishes, the goodness of the wine and the fine weather. They enjoy all the cheerful things. Those who are to be unhappy think and speak only of the opposite things. Therefore, they are continually dissatisfied. By their remarks, they sour the pleasure of society, hurt many people, and make themselves disagreeable everywhere. If this turn of mind was founded in nature, such unhappy persons would be the more to be pitied. The intention of criticizing and being disliked is perhaps taken up by imitation. It grows into a habit, unknown to its possessors. The habit may be strong, but it may be cured when those who have it realize its bad effects on their interests and tastes. I hope this little warning may be of service to them, and help them change this habit. Although in fact it is chiefly an act of the imagination, it has serious results in life since it brings on deep sorrow and bad luck. Those people hurt many others; nobody loves them, and no one treats them with more than the most common politeness and respect. This
frequently puts them in bad temper and draws them into arguments. If they aim at getting some advantages in social position or fortune, nobody wishes them success. Nor will anyone start a step or speak a word to favor their hopes. If they bring on themselves public objections, no one will defend or excuse them, and many will join to criticize their wrongdoings. These should change this bad habit and be pleased with what is pleasing, without worrying needlessly about themselves and others. If they do not, it will be good for others to avoid any contact with them. Otherwise, it can be disagreeable and sometimes very
inconvenient, especially when one becomes mixed up in their quarrels. 29. People who are unhappy _______. A. always consider things differently from others B. always discover the unpleasant side of certain things C. usually misunderstand what others think or say D. usually are affected by the results of certain things 30. The phrase “sour the pleasure of society” most nearly means “_______”. A. makes others unhappy C. tend to scold others openly 31. We can conclude from the passage that _______. A. we should pity all such unhappy people B. such unhappy people are dangerous to social life C. people can get rid of the habit of unhappiness D. unhappy people can not understand happy persons B. has a good taste with social life D. enjoy the pleasure of life

International Toy Fair. What’s four days long, bigger than seven football fields, and filled with thousands of toys? It’s Toy Fair 2014! Each year, hundreds of toy companies from across the country come together in New York
City. All kinds of products are shown as a way to know what’s to come in the new year.

Members of the media, like TFK, go to the fair to report back on all the cool trends. Unfortunately, Toy Fair is not open to the public. This year’s Toy Fair was the biggest in its 111-year history. More than 1,000 toy companies showed products from simple card games to high-tech robots. “Larger Than Life” was a Toy Fair favorite. This trend is all about big toys with a big play value. Though it is all fun and games at Toy Fair, we saw lots of products making a push towards education, with STEAM. That stands for science, technology, engineering, art, and math. This trend includes word games. And of course, we saw some super cool, high-tech games. “Technology is always going to influence toys,” says Appell. “This year we saw lots of 3D games, and robots.” To know more information about the event, click here to watch the video. 32.

第二节书面表达（满分 25 分） An increasing number of students are choosing to go abroad to study every year. But, so thrilling an experience as it is, adjusting to the culture of a foreign country can also be a challenge, which may influence their academic performance. A university has done a survey on the challenges presented by different aspects of social acculturation, and the results are shown in the chart above. As can be seen clearly, most Chinese overseas students have little trouble adjusting to daily routines. Besides, they also do well in adapting themselves to academic study and understanding the values. Language isn’t a major obstacle to adapting to a new culture. But most of them find interpersonal communication a big problem, the score of which is the lowest. And this can easily lead us to the conclusion: the biggest challenge for Chinese overseas students is to fit into local circles. It is suggested that overseas students take part in more community services and activities, thus helping them get used to the life in a foreign country more quickly.

may go home with a bag of food you were not planning to buy.The supermarket,not you,decided you should buy it.
