A If I were writing a history of my family, some of the darkest moments recorded would be those about Christmas trees. One would certainly think otherwise; selecting and putting up our trees have always been filled with risk. For example, one afternoon dangerously close to Christmas Eve my mother bought what she thought to be a bargain, a glorious tree that was so full and tall that we could hardly get it into the house. Once we did, my father immediately realized that we would have to hire a carpenter to build a stand for it. Another December, perhaps the very next one, we bought a tree earlier than we ever had before. We were happy with its shape and delighted that its size was manageable. We easily placed it in a stand, decorated it from top to bottom, and then self-satisfiedly sat back by the fire in its soft light. Two or three days passed and the truth could not be hidden; we had bought a tree cut so long ago that its needles were coming off. There was nothing to do but undecorate it, take it down, and begin tree shopping again. Our most recent Christmas tree offered still another difficult task. When we brought it home, once again it seemed larger than it was in the great outdoors. To complicate matters, we had bought a new stand, one whose nuts（螺帽）and bolts（闩子）worked more mysteriously than those of our old stands. I persuaded two young neighbors to stop playing basketball and to help us get the tree into the house and set it correctly in the stand. Unfortunately, no one noticed the mud on our helpers' shoes, so only after removing several reddish brown spots from the carpet were we able to discuss the question of where the lights and ornaments（装饰 物）were stored. Perhaps those who cut their own trees have tales more painful than these. I don't care to hear them, as my family's experiences are enough to cause me to make the following suggestion: "Let's forget the tree next Christmas. Let's simply hang some flowers on the front door and over the mirror in the hall."
【第 51 题】： The darkest moments in the writer's family were with the fact that ________.
题目详解：根据文中第二句"Selecting and putting up our trees have always been filled with risk."可知答 案。 A the family bought big Christmas trees B they had problems decorating their Christmas trees C they had problems picking suitable Christmas trees D they had problems finding carpenters for putting up Christmas trees 作答记录： 未作答 参考答案： C

【第 53 题】 When the writer said "my mother bought what she thought to be ： a bargain", he means _________.

B Did Steve Jobs kill the music industry? That's the question on many people's lips since rock star Jon Bon Jovi accused the Apple boss of personally destroying the music industry. Bon Jovi centers his criticism on how he believes music downloading has robbed young people of what he calls the "beauty of buying an album". "Kids today have missed the beauty of taking your allowance（零花钱）money and making a decision based on the jacket（封面）, not knowing what the record sounded like," he said. But far from killing the industry, many young people today think Jobs has been a blessing（带来幸运的人）, offering you instant, and selective access to a whole world of music. Keith Staskiewicz at Entertainment Weekly speaks for the feelings of many music lovers. He believes listening to MP3s rather than records or CDs "just saves them money" and doesn't "eliminate（消除）the sense of discovery they get from new music". Staskiewicz also argues that it's wrong to blame Jobs and Apple for destroying anything. "Change is just part of the business," Staskiewicz said. "No doubt in 50 years, Justin Bieber will complain in his Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction speech about how kids don't listen to iPods anymore." For now, though, it appears that music downloading is set to continue for the near future. According to Sumner Redstone, chairman of media company Viacom, iTunes has "resurrected（复兴）the music industry by creating a legal, affordable purchasing system for fans". But recent surveys suggested that, despite the "legalizing" of music downloading via sites like iTunes, young people are still choosing to download music illegally. A report by Jupiter Research suggested that illegal downloading sites are used three times as much as legal ones. The problem, according to its analyst Mark Mulligan, is how today's youth grow up viewing music as something they can get for free. "Unless the music industry can shift these consumers while they are young away from free consumption to paid music formats, the digital or CDs," warned Mulligan, "they may never develop music purchasing behavior and the recording industry could suffer long-term harm." 【第 55 题】： Jon Bon Jovi thinks Steve Jobs has destroyed the music industry because ________.

【第 57 题】： According to Mark Mulligan, the best solution to illegal music downloading is to ________.

C Nowadays, there's a lot of debate about single sex education since it has begun to resume（恢复）its popularity recently. According to long term studies of children from around the world, students achieve more and learn better in single sex schools. An Australian study of 270,000 students found that both boys and girls
performed significantly higher on standardized tests when they attended separate schools. During an experiment in Virginia in 1995, 100 eighth graders were separated just for math and science courses. Almost immediately, the girls began to achieve more, become more confident and participate more often in class. In 2001, a British study concluded that nearly every girl regardless of her ability or socioeconomic status performed better in single sex classrooms than co-ed ones. The study of 2,954 high schools and 979 primary schools showed that while boys at the lowest levels academically improved the most in single sex education was particularly beneficial to girls. Every one of the top 50 private elementary schools and top 20 private high schools in Britain are single sex schools. Girls became more confident in themselves as students and earned higher scores on their College Board and Advanced Placement examinations. A quarter of the female members of the US Congress and one-third of all female members of Fortune 100 boards graduated from all-women's colleges. While the statistics are not as dramatic for boys, nonetheless（但是）, boys tend to soften their competitive edge and become more collaborative（合作的）in a single sex setting. They can just be boys and not worry about what the girls might think. Single sex education has a delightful way of encouraging children to be fearless, to be curious, to be enthusiastic---in short, to just be themselves. Children are subjected （屈从于） pressures from every quarter to become adults before they to are ready to do so. They grow up too quickly. Why not let them be children for a few more years? Single sex education with its gentler, more controlled social atmosphere is just the right answer for many children. 【第 59 题】 With the experiment in Virginia in 1995, the writer wants to show ： that ________.

D Like many of my generation, I have a weakness for hero worship. At some point, however, we all begin to question our heroes and our need for them. This leads us to ask: What is a hero? Despite immense differences in cultures, heroes around the world generally share a number of characteristics that instruct and inspire people. A hero does something worth talking about. A hero has a story of adventure to tell and a community who will listen. But a hero goes beyond mere fame. Heroes serve powers or principles larger than themselves. Like high-voltage
transformers, heroes take the energy of higher powers and step it down so that it can be used by ordinary people. The hero lives a life worthy of imitation. Those who imitate a genuine hero experience life with new depth, enthusiasm, and meaning. A sure test for would-be heroes is what or whom do they serve? What are they willing to live and die for? If the answer or evidence suggests they serve only their own fame, they may be famous persons but not heroes. Madonna and Michael Jackson are famous, but who would claim that their fans find life more abundant? Heroes are catalysts（催化剂）for change. They have a vision from the mountaintop. They have the skill and the charm to move the masses. They create new possibilities. Without Gandhi, India might still be part of the British Empire. Without Rosa Parks and Martin Luther King, Jr., we might still have segregated（隔离的）buses, restaurants, and parks. It may be possible for large-scale change to occur without leaders with magnetic personalities, but the pace of change would be slow, the vision uncertain, and the committee meetings endless. 【第 63 题】： Although heroes may come from different cultures, they ________.

A they have a vision from the mountaintop B they have warm feelings and emotions C they can serve as concrete examples of noble principles D they can make people feel stronger and more confident 作答记录： 未作答 参考答案： C

E The decline in moral standards---which has long concerned social analysts---has at last captured the attention of average Americans. And Jean Bethke Elshtain, for one, is glad. The fact the ordinary citizens are now starting to think seriously about the nation's moral climate, says this ethics（伦理学）professor at the University of Chicago, is reason to hope that new ideas will come forward to improve it. But the challenge is not to be underestimated. Materialism and individualism in American society are the biggest obstacles. "The thought that 'I'm in it for me' has become deeply rooted in the national consciousness," Ms. Elshtain says. Some of this can be attributed to the disintegration of traditional communities, in which neighbors looked out for one another, she says. With today's greater mobility and with so many couples working, those bonds have been weakened, replaced by a greater emphasis on self. In a 1996 poll of Americans, loss of morality topped the list of the biggest problems facing the U.S. and Elshtain says the public is correct to sense that: Data show that Americans are struggling with problems unheard of in the 1950s, such as classroom violence and a high rate of births to unmarried mothers. The desire for a higher moral standard is not a lament（挽歌）for some nonexistent "golden age", Elshtain says, nor is it a wishful（一厢情愿的）longing for a time that denied opportunities to women and minorities. Most people, in fact, favor the lessening of prejudice.
Moral decline will not be reversed until people find ways to counter the materialism in society, she says. "Slowly, you recognize that the things that matter are those that can't be bought." 【第 67 题】： Professor Elshtain is pleased to see that Americans ________.

题目详解：Nowadays, it is a common phenomenon that more and more high school students love to buy name brand products ranging from cell phones and laptops to cosmetics and clothing. I hold different opinions. What students should do, above all, is to do well in their studies. Pursuing luxury brands will get us distracted from schoolwork. Moreover, name brand products cost much. Students had better live a thrifty life and save the money to help those really in need. As is known to all, some people in the world do not have enough money to even buy food, let alone name brand products. For myself, name brand products don’t matter much.
