(共 150 分，共 120 分钟)
第一卷 共 100 分 一、听力（30 分，每小题 1.5 分）略 二、阅读理解（30 分，每小题 2 分） A Yesterday was awful. We had what they?re calling a “weather event” here,
and it poured about 14 inches of rain in a day, causing by far the worst flash flooding I?ve seen in the 13 years in the place where we?ve lived. The kids and I ended up being trapped in our car in rapidly rising flood waters. The engine had stopped and couldn?t start again; the kids were terrified and I didn?t know what to do. Then a man in a 4WD pulled up beside us and offered to pull us out of the water. When he got us to higher ground he asked where our home was. We lived about 2km down the road, so he pulled us all the way back to our street before going off to look for more people in trouble. I don?t know this man and I ?ll probably never see him again, but the kids and I owe him a huge debt of gratefulness that we?ll never be able to repay. Five local people died in this “weather event”, just a few streets away from here, so I?m in no doubt as to how dangerous our situation was. Going through what we went through has only reinforced(强化) the fact that we should always be ready and willing to help someone in need to stay safe and be well, whatever the situations are. 21.What can we learn about the “weather event”? A. It was the biggest flood ever in this area. B. It rained for several days. C. Several people lost their lives in the event. D. Nobody was hurt in the event. 22.Which statement is NOT TRUE about the man? A. He drove a car of great power. B. He left as soon as he pulled the author?s car out. C. He was willing to help those in trouble.
D. He was a brave and selfless person. 23. What is the author probably going to do after going through such a “weather event”? A. Be ready to give hands to others. B. Buy a car with a more powerful engine. C. Try hard to search for the man. D. Pay some money for the man?s help. 24.Which one is the best title for the passage? A. A Weather Event B. The Kindness of a Stranger C. A Car Accident in Flood D. An Awful Day B Do two kids make a perfect family? Share your views about this issue on our website. Lucina When you decide to have another child , you should plan your budget （预算） in advance. If you or your parents can?t take care of your body, you have to at least spend an extra 5000 yuan per month to hire a body sitter. If you want to send your kids to study abroad, you have to save another 1 million yuan. I think most young Chinese couples cannot afford the expense. Bcnu Two is more than twice the work, there?s no guaranteeing（确保）they?ll share interests; they could very well fight or want to head off in completely different directions. If you find you love the second one more than the first, I don?t see how that could possibly make life simple, as children are very sensitive to that sort of thing. My advice is to take care of yourself and take time for your love for the first child to relax and grow before even thinking about having a second child. Steven I always thought having two kids sounded perfect. But when my daughter was born with life-threatening health problems I knew she would be my only kid. Raising our daughter was going to take a lot of emotional, physical, and financial resources. If I had any more children, I don?t think I could handle it. William
Under the one-child policy carried out in China for three decades, many kids are spoilt by their parents. The “little emperors” have no idea of sharing and giving and many of them even become self-centered. If we have another child, the first one will learn something about responsibility, sharing and caring for others. 25.What can we learn from the passage? A. Few families are ready for a second child in China. B. It takes a lot of money to raise a second child. C. Steven has never considered having a second child. D. Many kids become selfish because of the one-child policy 26.Of all the four persons, who is most likely to have a second child? A. Lucina B. Bcnu C. Steven D. William
27.What does the underlined part “that sort of thing” most probably refer to ? A.The two kids have different interests. B. It makes life hard to have two kids. C. Parents can?t treat the two kids equally. D.The two kids fight with each other. 28.Which of the following statements about the four persons is true? A.Lucina plants to send her kids to study abroad. B. Bcnu thinks having a second child means more trouble. C. Steven suffers from health problems. D.William has a selfish child.
C You know how much your telephone has changed over the past 10 years? Your car will change even more than that in the next 10 years. One of the big changes is that cars will drive themselves. Some day you may not need to drive a car. You will just tell the car where you want to go and it will drive itself. “We definitely have the technology for it now,” says Andrew Poliak of automotive technology supplier QNX. “We expect self-driving cars to be a mainstream thing between 2020 and 2025.” The American company Google has been working on a self-driving automobile for years. These cars are already on the roads in the United States, mainly in California. Google cars are truly self-driving. These cars have
no steering wheels（方向盘）or pedals（踏板） Last week, police ordered one of Google?s cars to stop for driving too slowly on a public road. The car was not breaking any law, so no one was punished. But police did speak with the operators of the vehicle. According to Google, its self-driving cars have been driven nearly 2 million kilometers. That is equal to the distance the average person drives in 90 years. So far, no Google self-driving car has gotten a traffic ticket. Some of them have been in accidents when other cars hit them. 29.Why was the Google?s car stopped by police? A.It ran too fast C.It drove too slowly. 30.What can we learn from the passage? A.The car hasn?t changed a lot over the past 10 years. B.Google has no self-driving car technology. C.Self-driving cars are widely used in the U.S. D.Google self-driving cars haven?t been fined so far. 31.What distance can a person drive in year on average? A.About 22,000km B.About 18,000km C.About 45,000km. D.About 11,000km. D For over a month, forest fires in Indonesia spread very quickly out of control as the country suffered its worst drought（干旱） in 50 years. Within days a cloud of some was hanging over neighbouring countries including Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand. When the smoke combined with pollution from factories and cars, it soon became poisonous（有毒的）. Dangerous amounts of CO became trapped under the smog and pollution levels rose. People coughed as they left the house and their eyes watered immediately. The smog made it impossible to see across streets and whole cities disappeared as grey soot（烟灰）covered everything. In some areas, tap water was used from high-rise city buildings to try and break up the smog. Finally, heavy rains, which came in November, put out the fires and cleared the air. But the environmental
B. It looks the law D. It had no driver.
costs and health problems will remain. Breathing problems could well increase and many non-sufferers may have difficulties for the first time. Wildlife has suffered too. In low-land forests, elephants, deer, and tigers have been driven out of their homes by smog. But smog is not just an Asian problem. In fact, the word was first used in London in 1905 to describe the mixture of smoke and thick fog. Sometimes the smog was so thick and poisonous that people were killed by breathing problems or in accidents. About 4,000Londoners died within five days as a result of thick smog in 1952. 32.When did the forest fires most probably happen? A. In July B. In October C. In November D. In December
33.Which of the following is true about the forest fires? A.The fires spread to Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand. B.The fires were put out by the firefighters and volunteers. C.Many animals were left homeless because of the smog. D.4,000people were killed by the forest fires. 34. When can we learn from the passage? A.Smog can lead to drought problem. B.Smog can cause forest fires easily. C.Smog has little effect on wildlife. D.Smog is more than an Asian problem. 35.What is the similarity between the Indonesia smog and the London smog? A.Both were caused by drought. B.Both caused many deaths. C.Both were poisonous. D.Both spread in several countries. 三、七选五 (共 5 小题；每小题 2 分。满分 l0 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。 Receiving unwanted or anonymous（匿名的） calls makes you angry and annoyed, wondering who is calling you and how this caller got your personal number.
