第三部分：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 Some people make you feel comfortable when they are around. You spend an hour with them and feel as if you have known them half your life. These people have something in common. And once we know what it is, we can try to do it ourselves. How is it done? Here are several skills that good talkers have. If you follow the skills, they?ll help you put people at their ease, and make friends with them quickly. First of all, good talkers ask questions. Almost anyone, no matter how shy he is, will answer a question. One well-known businesswoman says, “At business lunches, I always ask people what they did that morning. It?s a common question, but it will get things going.” From there you can move on to other matters—sometimes to really personal questions. And how he answers will let you know how far you can go. Second, once good talkers have asked questions, they listen to the answers. This point seems clear, but it isn?t. Your questions should have a point and help to tell what sort of pers on you are talking to. And to find out, you really have to listen carefully and attentively. Real listening at least means some things. First it means not to change the subject of conversation. If someone sticks to one topic, you can take it as a fact that he?s really interested in it. Real listening also means not just listening to words, but to tones of voice. If the voice sounds dull, then, it?s time for you to change the subject. Finally, good talkers know well how to deal with the occasion of parting. If you?re saying good-bye, you may give him a firm handshake and say, “I?ve really enjoyed meeting you.” If you want to see that person again, don?t keep it a secret. Let people know what you feel, and they may walk away feeling as if they?ve known you half their life. 56. Asking questions might be a quite good and suitable way _______. A. for you to make more and more new friends B. to begin your business talks C. to get the conversation going smoothly
D. for you to make a deep and lasting impression on others 57. After having asked somebody a question, it?ll be polite of you to _______. A. make clear what kind of person he is B. listen to his reply attentively C. wait quietly and patiently for his answer D. go on asking him more questions 58. Generally speaking, good talkers are persons who _______. A. are good at making any topic interesting B. never talk too much or too little C. always speak in a gentle way D. know how and when they should change the topic of the talk 59. If you really take delight in meeting someone again, _______. A. you may take him as your lifelong trustworthy friend B. it seems necessary for you to let him know it C. it?s proper for you to give him a second handshake D. it?ll be helpful for you to have further understanding of him B Here is a poster on a middle school web site. Read the web-site poster. Going, Going, Gone!

Some do very complicated jobs like flying airplanes and driving subway trains. And some do one simple job. When an automatic washing machine is switched on, water pours in. The machine waits until the water is warm enough for washing clothes. It does this by “feedback”(反馈). Information about what is happening is feedback into the robot to tell what to do next. Our eyes, ears and other senses are our feedback. They tell us what is going on around us. So robots are like human beings in two ways. They work and they have feedback. In some ways robots are better than human beings. They work quickly and do not make mistakes. They do not get bored doing the same job over and over again. And they never get tired. So robots are very useful in factories. They can be taught to do many different jobs. First their electronic brain must be shown how the job is done. A person moves the robot?s “arms” and “hands” through each part of the job. The most intelligent robots can move and see. Their eyes are cameras.
Their fingers can feel shapes and sizes of the objects. These robots have computer brains linked to their eyes and fingers, which control their actions. The expensiY: 'Times New Roman'">The most intelligent robots cave robots are used in scientific research. They do such job as handling radioactive materials. 64. In this passage the author tells us that ________. A. robots are very popular B. there are various kinds of robots C. we see robots only at certain times D. robots can be easily controlled 65. What does the author seem to inform you about robots? A. They should be greatly improved. B. They will probably take over in the future. C. They are very helpful and useful to humans. D. They are machines that break down a lot. 66. The fact that a robot never gets bored doing the same job means that _______. A. it is very much like human beings B. it can do boring jobs for people C. it will never bore people D. it will work much better than human beings 67. The robots used for scientific research _______. A. are not very clever B. are very cheap C. are very big D. are very costly D Boxing was long viewed sickly. Generally forbidden by law in earlier days, the fighting was usually done with bare fists, and matches often lasted forty or fifty rounds. In 1882 John L. Sullivan, a fighter of great power, won the world heavyweight championship from Paddy Ryan in a bare fisted battle marked by hitting, scratching, and biting without any rule. Five years later, while fighting Patsy Cardiff at Minneapolis, Sullivan broke his right arm in the third round, but he continued fighting to the sixth round and won. In 1889, Sullivan defeated Jade Kilrain with his bare fists in another championship fight, winning twenty thousand dollars and a diamond prize medal. His admirers talked then of running him for the next governor, but he traveled to Australia for a boxing tour instead, coming back only to lose his title in a twenty-one-round match with a young Californian named James J. Corbett.
“Gentleman James” victory in this match marked a turning point, for it showed scientific boxing was over strength. But Corbett?s title ended in 1897, when another boxer, Bob Fitzsimmons, in less than three seconds, achieved his feats and then Fitzsimmons knocked out an Irishman, won the heavyweight championship of the world, and invented the terrible “solar plexus punch.” 68. Boxing matches in the early days were ________. A. short and bloody B. usually spare-time competitions C. governed by strict rules D. cruel 69. Sullivan held the world?s heavyweight title for ________. A. at least seven years B. only a year C. five years D. twenty-one years 70. Sullivan?s fight with Kilrain was ________. A. the first boxing championship match B. a bare-fisted championship fight C. the last boxing match to be fought bare-fisted D. a six-round match 71. Sullivan was so popular that his admirers ________. A. encouraged him to be a governor B. raised twenty thousand dollars for him C. advised him to take boxing tour of Australia D. refused to believe he could be defeated E “It hurts me more than you”, and “This is for your own good” —these are the statements my mother used to make years ago when I had to learn Latin, clean my room, stay home and do homework. That was before we entered the permissive period in education in which we decided it was all right not to push our children to achieve their best in school. The schools and the educators made it easy for us. They taught that it was all right to be parents who take a let-alone policy. We stopped making our children do homework. We gave them calculators, turned on the television, left the teaching to the teachers and went on vacation. Now teachers, faced with children who have been developing at their own pace for the past 15 years, are realizing we?ve made a terrible mistake. One such teacher is Sharon Clomps who says of her students—“so passive” —and wonders what has happened. Nothing is demanded of them, she believes. Television, says Clomps, contributes to children?s passivity. “We?re talking about a generation of kids who? vet never been hurt or hungry. They have learned somebody will always do it for them, instead of saying ?go and look it up?, you tell them the answer. It takes greater energy to say no to a kid.”
Yes, it does. It takes energy and it takes work. It?s time for parents to end their vacation and come back to work. It? s time to take the car aw; tab -stops: 1ay, to turn the TV off, to tell them it hurts you more than them but it? s for their own good. It?s s time to start telling them no again. 72. Children are becoming more inactive in study because _______. A. they watch TV too often homework C. they have to fulfill too many duties D. teachers are too strict with them B. they have done too much 73. We learn from the passage that the author?s mother used to lay emphasis on _______. A. learning Latin B. discipline C. natural development D. education at school 74. By “permissive period in education” (L.1, Para.2) the author means a time _______. A. when children are allowed to do what they wish to B. when everything can be taught at school C. when every child can be educated D. when children are permitted to receive education 75. The main idea of the passage is that _______. A. parents should leave their children alone B. kids should have more activities at school C. it?s time to be more strict with our kids D. parents should always set a good example to their kids
