II 阅读 (共两节，满分 50 分) 第一节 阅读理解 (共 20 小题；每小题 2 分，满分 40 分) 阅读下列短文，从每题所给的 A、B、C 和 D 项中，选出最佳选项，并在答题卡上将该项 涂黑。 A Life is a series of choices, and we cannot always foresee the consequences. Harry Saleem, a very fat man with too much money and power, faced a choice. Outside his office waited his personal doctor, bringing him vital news about the only medicine that could save his life. On the other side of the world, one of his engineers waited for his decision on an important matter of business. His secretary asked whether she could bring the doctor in. The billionaire businessman made his decision. “No, let the fool wait,” growled Saleem. “Business comes first.” Despite the health problems caused by his huge weight, he was still obsessed with making money. He raised a fat finger, and one of his staff hurried to switch on a large television set. The screen flashed to life, and Saleem?s engineer appeared. The man talked by satellite directly to his master although they were thousands of miles apart. “It?s all ready to blow, Mr. Saleem,” he said. “Just say the word.” His engineer was standing above Pakan Valley in South America. A few months ago, it had been a rainforest. Then Saleem?s men had come, cutting down all the valuable trees and forcing the villagers to move out. Across the bottom of the valley, a dam had been built. This would provide power for the factories which Saleem planned to build in the area. The factories would bring him vast profits. He ordered the engineer to press the button. The camera moved across the valley, and then a cloud of dust rose up, followed shortly by a dull explosion. A mighty river changed its course, and water flooded into the doomed Pakan Valley.

“Good, that?s that. Turn it off. Now get that doctor in here,” he commanded. The doctor came in with a worried look and started to examine his wealthy patient. “You?re doing very well, Mr Saleem,” he said finally. The new medicine is saving your life. The only difficulty is getting more of it.” “Can you get more? Money is no problem,” Saleem said. “Tell me what you need, and we?ll get it.” “The main ingredient of this medicine came from a newly-discovered plant — a small, green orchid,” the doctor explained. “We?ll need many of them to make enough medicine. They are very rare. There?s only one place in the world where they grow.” “Where?” demanded the businessman, impatiently. The doctor smiled. “Well, luckily the orchids come from some land you own. They?re from a place in South America known as “Pakan Valley”.
26. Why did Saleem decide to talk to the engineer before the doctor? A. He promised to meet the engineer on time. B. He placed business before anything else. C. He thought little of his own health. D. He thought the doctor was a fool. 27. The underlined phrases “was still obsessed with” in Paragraph 4 is closest in meaning to ________.

30. This short story is intended to ________. A. entertain the reader with humour B. warn people about being too greedy C. report about a rainforest?s destruction D. introduce an important business leader

B The following is a speech given by the award-winning American actor and writer, Matt Damon. I was raised by a teacher and I?ve always attended public schools. I wouldn?t trade my education and experience for anything. I had incredible teachers. As I look at my life today, the things I value most about myself — my imagination, my love of acting, my passion for writing, my love of learning, my curiosity — all come from how I was parented and taught. And none of these qualities I?ve just mentioned, that have given me such happiness and success, can be tested. I said before that I had incredible teachers. That?s because my teachers were EMPOWERED to teach me. They didn?t have to waste their time giving tests, which any serious person knows don?t promote real learning. My teachers were free to treat me and every other kid like an individual. They figured out who we were and how to best make the lessons relevant to each of us. They were empowered to unlock our potential. They were allowed to be teachers. But that was in the 1970s. Today tests are used to decide everything — where students can study; how good you are as a teacher. It?s crazy! As a consequence, teachers spend most of their time desperately drilling students and less time encouraging creativity and original ideas; less time knowing who we were, seeing our strengths and helping us realize our talents. It must be horrible for teachers now. I came here today to deliver an important message to you and I?m not alone. I?m one of the millions of people who support you. We too oppose testing. So the next time you?re feeling down, or exhausted, or unappreciated, or at the end of your rope, please know that there are millions of us behind you. You have an army of regular people standing right behind you, and our appreciation for what you do is so deeply felt. We love you, we thank you and we will always have your back. 31. Who is the intended audience of this speech? A. Teachers. C. Government officers. B. Headmasters. D. Exam designers.
32. Which of the following is true about Damon?s early experiences? A. He was generally taught at home by his mother. B. He benefited a great deal from his teachers. C. He mainly studied in private schools. D. He did really well in his school tests.
第 5 页（共 12 页）
33. According to Damon, incredible teachers are those who ________. A. were allowed to be teachers because they have quality B. were never bothered to help students prepare for their tests C. thought it their responsibility to help their students pass tests D. carefully planned their teaching to meet students? needs of learning 34. What?s Damon?s opinion on tests? A. He is ashamed that he didn?t do well in them when he was a student. B. He thinks it is a fair way to evaluate the students but not the teachers. C. He feels lucky that in his time of school education he didn?t have to take them. D. He doesn?t think it a proper way of measuring how much students have learned. 35. When a person is “at the end of his rope” he ________. A. thinks himself useless C. is very desperate B. needs courage to take action D. is short of money
C Imagine Sally and Anne having a drink in a bar. While Sally is in the bathroom, Anne decides to buy another drink, but she notices that Sally has left her phone on the table. Anne puts the phone into her friend?s bag before heading to the bar so that no one steals it. When Sally returns, where will she expect to see her phone? If you said she?d look at the table where she left it, congratulations! You have a “theory of mind” — the ability to understand that another person may have knowledge, ideas and beliefs that differ from your own, or from reality. This ability may not seem special but it involves doing something no other animal can: ignoring our own beliefs about the world — that the phone is in the bag — and take on an alternative world view. The “theory of mind” was first developed in the 1970s, when it was discovered that at around the age of four, children develop this ability. The standard way to test a child?s “theory of mind” is called the Sally-Anne test. It involves acting out the events described earlier, only with puppets and a missing ball. When asked, “When Sally returns, where will she look for the ball? ” most three-year-olds say she?ll look in the new spot, where Anne has placed it. The child knows the ball?s location, so they cannot imagine that Sally would think it was anywhere else. But around the age of four, that changes. Most four and five-year-olds realize that Sally will expect the ball to be just where she left it.
第 6 页（共 12 页）
For over two decades that was the dogma, but the idea has been challenged by new research that indicated “theory of mind” is present in babies just 15 months old. Such young children cannot answer questions about where they expect Sally to look for the ball, but you can tell what they?re thinking by how long they stare: babies look for longer at things they find surprising. When Sally searched for the ball in a place she should not have expected to find it, the babies did stare for longer. In other words, they seemed to understand that people can have false beliefs.
36. The author told the story about Sally and Anne in the bar in order to ________. A. test how clever the readers are B. explain how adults solve problems C. introduce the concept of “theory of mind” D. show the difference between facts and beliefs 37. Which of the following is true about the classic Sally-Anne test? A. It concluded that children developed the theory of mind around four. B. It showed children were confused by the Sally and Anne test. C. It found that three-year-old children didn?t know how to lie. D. It proved that 4-year-olds were smarter than 3-year-olds. 38. According to the passage, “the theory of mind” has been ________. A. universally accepted B. criticized by the scientists C. clearly proven to be wrong D. challenged by some researchers 39. When babies who can?t talk are given the Sally-Anne test, why did they stare? A. They were surprised about where Sally was looking for the ball. B. They were happy to know that Sally was unable to find the ball. C. They were confused by the fact that Sally couldn?t find the ball. D. They were interested in where Sally was looking for the ball. 40. The passage includes the following contents EXCEPT ________. A. new findings opposing the classic Sally-Anne test B. how different adults and children are C. how the Sally-Anne test is done D. what the theory of mind is

D Six-year-old Hunter Yelton, a first grader at an American primary school, was recently suspended（停学）for kissing a girl in his class on the hand. Hunter spoke to KRDO News-channel and explained, “It was during class. We were doing reading and I leaned over and kissed her on the hand. That?s what happened.” The boy went on to take responsibility for what he did, “She sent me to the office. Fair and square. I did something wrong and I feel sorry. I?ve been trying to be good at school.” Hunter got into trouble because his actions fit the elementary school?s definition of “sexual harassment（性骚扰）”. So now Little Hunter has a record as a sexual harassment offender. Hunter?s mother, Jenny Saunders, felt it was inappropriate saying “sexual harassment”. “This is taking it to an extreme that doesn?t need to be met with a six-year-old. Now my son is asking questions, ?What is sex, mommy??” she said, “The word ?Sex? should not ever be said in a sentence with a six-year-old.” The female classmate and her parents have not come forward but according to Ms. Saunders, “She was fine with it. They are ?boyfriend and girlfriend?. The other children saw it and went to the music teacher.” KRDO spoke to Dr. Sandy Smith, a child clinical psychologist and professor at the University of Colorado, who specializes in child sexual development. About Hunter kissing a classmate the psychologist said, “For most six-year-old boys, absolutely, that would be a normal behavior.” She was surprised by the suspension and thinks that the term “sexual harassment” could be problematic for children. “I don?t think a six-year-old would understand what harassment is. That has some longer term implications,” said Dr. Smith, adding, “This part of development is just as important, if not more than, as their academic subjects.” She suggested that this could be a teachable moment and should involve the students, their classmates and their parents so there wouldn?t be a negative stain attached to the behavior. “Move away from that ?we don?t do this? to ?in what situations is it acceptable? ?. You may have different rules of showing affection than you do maybe at home.” 41. What can we learn about the boy Hunter? A. He didn?t regret what he did. B. He was proud of what he did. C. He felt he deserved his punishment. D. He didn?t think what he did was wrong.

42. What did Hunter ?s mother Ms Saunders think was wrong? A. The girl?s family?s response. B. Her son?s kissing his girlfriend. C. The charge of “sexual harassment”. D.

A. the school didn?t explain to the boy what sex harassment is B. there is a definition of “sex harassment” in elementary schools C. “sexual harassment” was actually applied to a six-year-old boy D. a six-year-old boy would dare to kiss a girl on the hand in class 44. What does Dr. Smith suggest as an appropriate thing to do? A. Nothing should be done to it as it?s just a normal behaviour. B. The school should consider making changes to their regulations. C. Schools should stop children from developing boy-girl friendship. D. All should come together to discuss what is appropriate behaviour. 45. Which of the following is the best title for this article?

Wang Qi, a leading doctor in Beijing has offered various reasons for the heavy workload of China?s healthcare workers, such as the fact that an increasing number of Chinese women — especially working women in cities — give birth to babies at a later age. She said statistics show women in rural areas give birth at the average age of 25-26, while urban women give birth at the average age of 28-29. 47. The number of patent applications, the demand for legal support, and intellectual property consultation in various sectors have risen in recent years, inspired by the central government?s call to develop intellectual property strategies. But the development also poses challenges to the country?s immature patent services. Experts said China?s patent laws need to be upgraded with foreign expertise. 48.

第 11 页（共 12 页）
Whilst traveling with his parents, the 2-year-old boy urinated ( 便溺 ) on the street in Mongkok, a popular shopping spot for many traveling to the island city. When a young man photographed the scene “out of disgust at the behavior,” the baby?s parents fought with him and tried to take his camera. The mother explained that they?d queued for a long time and the kid couldn?t help any more. Local passers-by soon joined in the argument: most supporting the photographer and criticizing the parents for not showing due respect for local Hong Kong customs. The issue started a war of words on Weibo. Some net users have criticized the attitude of the local Hong Kong people towards the mainland visitors. They argue that the incident demonstrates how many Hong Kong people wrongly look down on mainland Chinese. At the other extreme of the debate are those who are critical of the mainland couple for bringing shame on the people of China through their actions.

The school currently employs 40 experienced Chinese and foreign teachers to instruct the school?s 250 active and cooperative students. The 30 courses available for students all aim at developing students? ability to find practical solutions through thoughtful analyses. Teachers and students can also take part in different kinds of sports after class, such as basketball, tennis, badminton and swimming. Student dormitories are each equipped with air-conditioning, a washing machine, computer and wifi so life is comfortable and convenient. 读写任务 The passage describes the debate that has resulted from an internet video clip taken in Hong Kong of a mainland couple encouraging their two-year-old child to urinate in a public area. It is really hard to judge which side is more to blame for the original dispute. On the one hand, it?s clear that the mainland couple didn?t properly respect local Hong Kong customs. On the other hand, however, the actions of the Hong Kong photographer were also disrespectful and mean-spirited. (Instead of trying to help or simply stopping the parents, he went straight to the extreme — taking photos of a two-year-old urinating! He was clearly trying to humiliate the parents.) In fact, both parities could have behaved differently to avoid the conflict. The photographer could have been a little more gracious and understanding of the mainland couple?s situation, particularly if there were no public toilets available. (If he had time to shoot video then didn?t he also have time to point out the nearest public toilet?) But I think the main responsibility was with the mainland couple. Even though this kind of action is very normal on the mainland, it was clearly not normal in Hong Kong. When travelling to different places, it is the responsibility of the visitor to be familiar with the rules of behavior of that place, and to act accordingly. The parents therefore, should have researched these customs more thoroughly. (At the very least they should have taken the child into a back alley, where the baby was not exposed to public.) There is an old saying goes, when in Rome do as the Romans do. I strongly suggest that visitors to a new place should do careful research beforehand to avoid getting into similar trouble.
