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。 A No one can change the weather. Nobody can control the weather. But if we read correctly the signs around us, we can tell what the more important changes in the weather will be. This way of telling what the weather will be like on the following day or two is called weather forecasting(预报). For many centuries and in all countries, people have studied the weather and tried to make weather forecasting. Rings around the sun are a sign of coming rain. That many people feel their joints(关节) hurt is a sign of wet weather. Some birds fly high if fine weather is coming, but they fly near the ground if rainy or stormy weather is on the way. If you see a rainbow during rainy weather, this is a sign that the weather will become clear and fine. Such rainbows come in the evening. If the stars twinkle clearly at night, then fine weather will continue. If a fog appears in the morning just above a river, then the day will be warm. If the sunset is mostly red in colour, then the following day will be fine. If a rainbow appears in the morning, rainy weather will
probably approach. Most of the above sayings have been made by the people who have used their eyes and brains to make weather forecasting. 21. According to the passage, people’s joints ache ______. A. because they are ill B. is a sign of coming rain C. without any reason D. because of the insects 22. Which of the following can be used here to replace the underlined phrase “on the way”? A. away B. gone C. coming D. disappearing 23. Which of the following signs can tell the weather will probably be rainy? A. A rainbow appears in the morning. B. Some birds fly high. C. The stars twinkle clearly at night. D. Fogs appear in the morning just above a river. 24. Which of the following sentences can you infer from the passage? A. One is never too old to learn. B. The early bird catches the worm. C. An hour in the morning is worth two in the evening D. Red sky in the morning, sailors take warning. Red sky at night, sailors’ delight. B The old man walked with a cane (拐杖) slowly into the restaurant. His poor jacket, worn-out trousers made him different from the usual Saturday morning breakfast crowd. Unforgettable were his pale blue eyes that sparkled like diamonds and thin lips that held a steady smile. He walked toward a table by the window. A young waitress watched him and ran over to him, saying, “Here, Sir. Let me give you a hand with that chair.” Without a word, he smiled and nodded a thank you. She pulled the chair away from the table. Supporting him with one arm, she helped him move in front of the chair, and get comfortably seated. Then she pushed the table up close to him, and leaned his cane against the table. In a soft, clear voice he said, “Thank you, Miss.” “You’re welcome, Sir.” She replied. “My name is Mary. I’ll be back in a moment. If you need anything, just wave at me.” After he had finished a nice meal, Mary brought him the change, helping him up from his chair and walking with him to the front door. Holding the door open for him, she said, “Come back and see us, Sir!” He nodded a thank you and said with a smile, “You are very kind!” When Mary went to clean his table, she was shocked. Under his plate she found a business card and a note written on the napkin, under which was a $ 100 bill. The note read, “Dear Mary, I respect you very much, and you respect yourself, too. It shows by the way you treat others. You have found the secret of happiness. Your kind gestures will shine through those who meet you.” The man she had served was the owner of the restaurant. This was the first time that she, or any of his employees, had seen him in person.
25. Mary ran over to the old man because _____. A. the old man was the boss of the restaurant B. she was worried that the old man might cause trouble to the restaurant C. she saw the old man had some difficulty moving and taking a seat D. the old man had asked her to wait on him 26. The man came to the restaurant_____. A. to have breakfast B. to see his workers C. to see how Mary served customers D. to find out how the workers in his restaurant were working 27. The words the man left on the napkin suggested that _____. A. respecting others means respecting oneself B. serving others is a respectable job C. Mary would get a rise as a result of her kindness D. Mary’s kind service would bring in more money for her 28. Which of the following is the best title for the story? A. A Kind- hearted Girl B. Shining Kindness C. Kindness Means Opportunities D. A Special Boss C Australia’s koalas could die out within 30 years unless immediate action is taken to stop the losing in population, according to researchers. They say development, climate change and bushfires have all combined to reduce the number of wild koalas sharply. The Australian Koala Foundation said a recent survey showed the population could have dropped by more than half in the past six years. The number of koalas was once estimated to be more than 100,000, but now is as few as 43,000. The foundation collected field data from 1,800 sites and 80,000 trees to calculate the numbers. In one area in northern Queensland estimated to have 20,000 koalas a decade ago, a team of eight people could not find a single animal in four days of searching. The foundation said besides problems caused by cutting down forests, hotter and drier conditions because of global warming had reduced the nutritional value of their main food, eucalyptus (桉树) leaves, leading to poor nutrition for them. Koalas, which live in the forests in Australia’s east and south, are very picky about what types of the leaves they eat. Foundation chief Deborah Tabart said: “The koalas are missing everywhere we look. It’s really no tree, no me. If you keep cutting down trees you don’t have any koalas.” She is hoping the new figures will persuade the government’s Threatened Species Steering Committee (TSSC) to list the koala as threatened. But committee chairman Bob Beeton said a decision was not likely recently and the koala’s status as one of the country’s favourite animals would not be a factor. “There’s a number of species which are attractive and people have special feelings towards them. We don’t consider that,”
Mr Beeton said. 29. The writer gives the example of the area in northern Queensland in Paragraph 3 to show that _____. A. the forests are being damaged heavily B. the number of koalas is dropping quickly C. koalas usually live in wild mountainous areas D. the environment is being polluted seriously 30. Global warming is an important cause of koalas’ reduction because _____. A. koalas can hardly stand the hot weather B. koalas cannot get enough water to drink C. the leaves koalas eat are losing nutritional value D. the leaves koalas eat cannot grow in hot weather 31. According to Bob Beeton, _____. A. koalas are his favourite animals B. a decision will be made to protect koalas C. koalas needn’t be protected at all D. they needn’t pay special attention to koalas D Food Festivals Around the World Stilton Cheese Rolling May Day is a traditional day for celebrations, but the 2,000 English villagers of Stilton must be the only people in the world who participate in cheese rolling. Teams of four, dressed in a variety of strange and funny clothes, roll a complete cheese along a 50-metre course. On the way, they must not kick or throw their cheese, or go into their competitors’ lane (赛道). Competition is fierce and the chief prize is a complete Stilton cheese weighing about four kilos (disappointingly, but understandably the cheeses used in the race are wooden ones). All the competitors are served with beer or wine, the traditional accompaniment for Stilton cheese. Fiery Foods Festival—The Hottest Festival on Earth Every year more than 10,000 people head for the city of Albuquerque, New Mexico. They come from as far away as Australia, the Caribbean and China, but they all share a common addiction—food that is not just spicy, but hot enough to make your mouth burn and your eyes water. Their destination is the Fiery Food and BBQ Festival which is held over a period of three days every March. You might like to try a chocolate-covered habanero pepper—the hottest pepper in the world—or any one of the thousands of products that are on show. But one thing is for sure—if you don’t like the feeling of a burning tongue, this festival isn’t for you! La Tomatina—The World’s Biggest Food Fight On the last Wednesday of every August, the Spanish town of Bunol holds La Tomatina—the world’s largest food fight. A week-long celebration leads up to an exciting tomato battle as the highlight of the week’s events. The early morning sees the arrival of trucks with tomatoes—official fight-starters get things going by throwing tomatoes at the crowd. The battle lasts little more than half an hour, in which time around 50,000 kilograms of tomatoes have been thrown at anyone or anything that moves, runs, or fights back. Then everyone heads down to the river to make friends again —and for a
much-needed wash! 32. In the Stilton cheese rolling competition, competitors on each team must_____. A. wear various formal clothes B. kick or throw their cheese C. roll a wooden cheese in their own lane D. use a real cheese weighing about four kilos 33. Where is the Fiery Food and BBQ Festival held? A. In the Caribbean. B. In New Mexico. C. In Australia. D. In China. 34. The celebration of La Tomatina lasts_____. A. seven days B. three days C. less than three days D. more than seven days 35. Which of the following is TRUE according to the passage? A. The chief prize for the Stilton cheese rolling competition is beer or wine. B. More than 10,000 Chinese take part in the Fiery Food and BBQ Festival. C. An exciting tomato battle takes place at the beginning of La Tomatina. D. Thousands of spicy foods are on show in the Fiery Food and BBQ Festival. 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。 It is reported that although our genes and environment play an important role, how happy we are largely depends on our choices and activities. The following are just several areas that tend to make a big difference to people’s happiness. Take a positive attitude Positive emotions―like joy, gratitude, satisfaction, inspiration and pride― don’t just feel good when we experience them. 36 So although we need to be realistic about life’s ups and downs, it helps to focus on the good aspects of any situation―the glass half full rather than the glass half empty. Accept who you are and what you are 37 Learning to accept ourselves and being kinder to ourselves when things go wrong will increase our enjoyment of life. It also helps us accept others as they are. Ask a trusted friend or colleague to tell you what they think your real strengths are. 38 39 Caring about others is fundamental to our happiness. Helping other people is not only good for them; it’s good for us too. It makes us happier and can help to improve our health. Giving also creates stronger connections between people and helps to build a happier society. Take part in something bigger People who have meaning and purpose in their lives are happier. They also experience less stress, anxiety and depression. 40 It might come from doing a job that makes a difference, or spiritual beliefs, or our family. The answers may be different for each of us but they all involve being connected to something bigger than ourselves. A. Our broader social networks bring a sense of belonging. B. Nobody is perfect.
C. D. E. F. G.
Give them a call or offer your support. Try to make more use of these. They also help us perform better, and improve our physical health. But where do we find meaning and purpose? Do things for others.
