Rio de Janeiro, Brazil's second largest city, stretches itself lazily along the coast of the Atlantic Ocean. It is a beautiful city. It has modern malls, theme parks and beautiful beaches. A trip to Rio will also give you a glimpse of the happy lifestyle of the cariocas -- the people of Rio -- who are known for their big hearts and friendliness. Downtown Rio is the city's cultural and historical heart. It is also the perfect place for a walk. Old buildings and churches stand next to stores and dance halls, and a walk through downtown Rio is a history lesson and an adventure. The many tall office buildings remind visitors that Rio is an important commercial city. The beach is never far away in Rio. Perhaps the most famous of all beaches, Copacabana, is only a few bus stops from downtown. Copacabana, also known as the "Princess of the Sea", has just celebrated its one hundredth birthday and is more beautiful than ever. The beach is clean and over ten miles long. Visitors who get tired of the sand and the sun can cool off in one of the many café s, shops and restaurants on Copacabana's main avenue. So what kind of fun can you have in Rio? Well, there is something for everyone here and few visitors leave Rio feeling disappointed. The best time to visit is in June or July, when the South American winter cools the city, but the biggest tourism season comes around March, when the cariocas celebrate the sun with a four-day festival. The festival, known as Carnival, is one of the world's most famous and attracts visitors from all over the world. 1. According to the text, which of the following young people will most likely go to Rio de Janeiro for a visit? A. Sophia who likes skating B. Craig who loves adventure on snow C. Charles who wants to see a Carnival D. Rachael with a hobby for horse-riding 2. The writer‘s purpose in writing the passage is _________. A. to attract B. to persuade C. to entertain D. to sell a service 3. All of the following are introduced about Rio de Janeiro except__________. A. location B. attractions C.scenery D. food
Dogs have an amazing sense of smell thanks to 300million smell receptors in their noses, compared to only five million in the human nose. Medical dogs are trained by smelling samples of people already diagnosed with cancer and those of people without the disease so they can learn to tell the difference. Dr Claire Guest began training her dog Daisy to smell out the killer disease in urine(小便) and breath samples（样品） when she was young. So far Daisy has found cancer in 551 patients, of

which 93 per cent were accurate. And she discovered Dr Guest‘s breast cancer before it was diagnosed– the first time she has discovered the disease actually growing in someone‘s body, rather than by smelling a sample. Dr Guest, 50, chief executive of charity Medical Detection Dogs, said: ―She pushed against my body with her nose repeatedly – I pushed her away, but she pushed against me again, clearly upset. She pushed me so hard that it hurt me. ―Her behaviour was totally out of character – she was normally such a happy dog ... I felt the tender area where she‘d pushed me, and over the next few days I discovered the tiniest lump(肿块). ―If it wasn‘t for Daisy it would have gone hidden for much longer and could have been more serious,‖ Dr Guest added. ―My own pet labrador saved my life.‖ Animal rescue charity Blue Cross presented Daisy with a medal for her achievements. She faced tough competition, including JJ, a bomb detection dog who has saved soldiers‘ lives in Afghanistan. Steve Goody, the charity‘s deputy chief executive, said: ―Cancer affects the lives of thousands of people and Daisy has made a huge contribution to the diagnosis and early treatment of cancers – she‘s a very deserving medal recipient.‖ Daisy is now helping to train a team of 12 dogs at Medical Detection Dogs and is a ?senior consultant‘ for the UK‘s first ever trial using dogs to discover breast cancer. 4. Why was Daisy awarded a medal? A. Because she can help discover cancer early. B. Because she can smell the urine and breath samples. C. Because she has saved many people‘s lives by barking. D. Because she has saved many soldiers‘ lives in Afghanistan. 5. Which of the following words is closest in meaning to ―recipient‖ in the last paragraph but one? A. Contributor B. Ancestor C. Helper D. Receiver 6. How did Daisy discover Dr Guest‘s cancer? A. By smelling the urine sample. B. By smelling the breath sample. C. By smelling the hidden cancer. D. By pushing Dr Guest hard. 7. From the text we can infer that __________. A. Cancer is easy to cure. B. Daisy and JJ competed hardly for the medal. C. Daisy is training other dogs to discover breast cancer. D. Dogs‘ special sense of discovering cancer is highly valued.
Down went the drills (钻井)! Up went the hopes of Darby and Uncle! Then something happened! The vein (矿脉) of gold ore (矿石) disappeared! The pot of gold was no longer there! They drilled on, desperately trying to pick up the vein again, but they found nothing. Finally, they decided to quit. They sold the machinery to a man for a few hundred dollars, and took the train back home. That man asked a mining engineer to look at the mine and do a little calculating. The engineer said that the project had failed because the owners were not familiar with ―fault lines (裂纹线)‖. His calculations showed that the vein would be found just three feet from where the Darbys had stopped drilling! That is exactly where it was found. The man took millions of dollars in ore from the mine, because he knew enough to ask for expert advice before giving up. R. U. Darby was struggling for years to pay back the money from his relatives and neighbors.

He went into the business of selling life insurance. Remembering that he lost a huge fortune because he stopped three feet from gold, Darby profited from the experience in his chosen work, by the simple method of saying to himself: ―I stopped three feet from gold, but I will never stop because men say ?no‘ when I ask them to buy Darby is part of a small group of fewer than 50 men who sell more than a million dollars in life insurance every year. His ―stickability (坚持)‖ comes from the lesson he learned from his ―quitability‖ in the gold mining business. 8. Darby and his uncle stopped digging for gold because ______. A. they didn‘t have the machinery to dig for the ore B. they didn‘t have enough money to manage the mine C. they had tried to find the vein of gold again, but in vain D. they had already gotten lots of gold from the ore and made big profits 9.

Don’t hesitate to ask for help when you are in need.
A group of university professors recently created a scanner they believe can predict the perfect job for anyone - simply by looking at their fingerprints. The group says that in the future, fingerprints could help tell a person‘s key personality. To use the scanner, people place their fingers upon the fingerprint reader and computer technology connected up to sensors( 传感器 ) reads back what sort of work would suit the individual. The device bases its results on a database of how fingerprint shapes correlate to job selection. This database was created using a variety of previous employment studies. Local employers helped researchers from the city's Kuban University of Physical Education and Sport to test the technology. Twenty one-year-old Oscar Galkin, a mathematics graduate, said: ―I got the result from the scanner that I would be suited to a job in IT - which is exactly what I want to do. I don't know if it is luck or if it can really read a person's ambitions and talents, but it worked for me.‖ And Zara Tokareva, aged 20, who feels uncomfortable at the sight of blood, said: ―I want to be a house designer but the machine said I should be a nurse. So, no, I don‘t think it is as clever as is

being made out.‖ Though fingerprint identification has been widely used in crime discovering, it is still a science that has a lot of possibility of being used, say experts, from discovering drug abuse to personality analysis - exactly as hand readers have been saying to do for centuries. ―The basic concept is that although everybody‘s fingerprints are completely unique, there are obvious characteristics that were common on the fingers of certain professionals working in certain jobs,‖ said researcher Ravil Yudin. ―It's not really a new idea because hand readers have been saying for hundreds of years that you can tell a person‘s future by reading their hand. We want to match that by looking at fingerprints and trying to predict what career path people would choose.‖ 12．From the text we know that one day the fingerprint scanner may ___________. A. read individuals‘ mind B. tell people‘s characters C. help collect job information D.match finger shapes to jobs 13．It can be inferred that the scanner __________. A. has been used in job hunting B. is popular with young men C. helps companies a lot D. needs to be improved 14．What can we learn from what Ravil Yudin said? A. The technology of fingerprint identification can be used in many fields. B. Telling one‘s future by reading his hands started a few years ago. C. Certain people‘s fingers actually have something in common. D. The fingerprint scanner is based on a new idea. 15．What‘s the main idea of the 7th paragraph? A. The history of fingerprint technology. B. The potential use of the new technology. C. Different opinions about the fingerprint scanner D. The wide-spread use of fingerprint reading in the law field. 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。选项中有两项为多余 选项。 Some companies may try to increase employee bonus(福利)like free food or fun social events, but Liz Wiseman, the author of Multipliers: How the Best Leaders Make Everyone Smarter, suggests a less obvious way of engaging employees: make them do something hard. 16 But managers need to know when an employee needs to be challenged. The following signs may help you determine when employees are ready for a new challenge: Everything they manage has run smoothly for a while. 17 They try to fix other problems at the office from different departments. And they've become strangely negative. If you notice an employee who fits this description, it's probably time to assign them a new challenge. 18 Give them more difficult and more complex duties, but don't ask them to change too much. You should expand on the work they're already doing. Invite them to work on something they are unfamiliar with, something outside their regular

ability. Let them learn as they go and become more comfortable with the new project and master new skills. 19 Wiseman gives the example of asking a scientist to switch from biology to oncology （肿瘤学） . The key is to make sure you're not driving your employees too hard. But if you can strike the right balance, they are bound to be more satisfied with their job. "Although it's important for your employees to stop and celebrate success or just catch their breath, they might also be ready for the next challenge sooner than you think," Wiseman writes. 20 . Challenging work is not." A. Have them apply their ability to a new problem. B. Pay raises, bonuses(奖金), and promotions are limited. C. When they meet a problem they quickly find a solution. D. One of the toughest jobs of managers and executives is to figure out how to engage their employees. E. The survey also discovered that people were often ready for a new challenge sooner than you might think. F. Once you recognize that need, Wiseman suggests three different ideas for how to make the employee feel challenged. G. He believes that employees not only want their skills to be used at work, but they want to be challenged to expand those skills. 第三部分：英语知识运用（共两节，满分 45 分） 第一节：完形填空（共 40 小题；每小题 1.5 分，满分 60 分） 阅读下面短文， 从短文后各题所给的四个选项中，选出可以填入空白处的最佳选项， 用铅笔把答题卡上对应题目的答案标号涂黑。
