A
A firm handshake is the key to interview success. As any serious job-hunter knows, it helps to dress smartly and smile at that all-important interview. But research has showed that a firm handshake is what really matters when it comes to impressing potential employers. A US research looked at 98 undergraduates taking part in mock 模拟) ( interviews with businesses. As each undergraduate was graded on their general performance, five “handshake raters(评估人)” also marked them on their grasp, strength, duration, vigor and eye contact. Professor Greg Stewart, from the University of Iowa, who led the study, said those who scored highly with the handshake raters were also considered to be the most hirable by the interviewers. Students with “wimpy” shakes were judged to be more timid(胆怯的)and less impressive. The study also found women with a firm handshake were likely to be evaluated more favorably than their male counterparts. Professor Stewart said: “We?ve always heard that interviewers make up their mind about a person in the first two or three minutes of an interview. But we found that the first impression begins with a handshake that sets the tone for the rest of the interview. We don?t consciously remember a person?s handshake but it is one of the first non-verbal(非语言的)clues we get about the person?s general personality, and that impression is what we remember.” Women were less likely to have a highly rated handshake, partly because traditionally they shake hands less than men. But when women did possess a firm handshake, they were likely to be evaluated more favorably than their male counterparts. Body language experts warn, however, that the firmness needs to be just right, —as an overenthusiastic “bone crusher” handshake can indicate self-importance, a controlling personality and a lack of reliability.

The firmer your handshake is the better impression you leave. B. The undergraduates without a firm handshake are less competitive. C. Generally speaking, women shake hands less with others. D. The handshake dates back to medieval Europe. 33. What is the main idea of the passage? A. The handshake determines a person?s personality. B. A successful job interview starts with a firm handshake.

B
The house was quiet at 5 am and Tim?s mother was asleep. Only the sound of the big freezer broke the quiet. He?d dreamt of the cave last night. The purring (轻微颤动声) the freezer had been of the sea. Tim pulled on a sweater and put some apples into his schoolbag. It was too early for breakfast. He?d eat after he?d been through the cave, sitting on the rocks and staring at the sea. He wished he had a proper pack. His schoolbag would have to do. What else? Sandwiches—but his mother might wake up if he started pulling out bread for sandwiches. She?d want to know why he had to leave so early. He settled for some biscuits, and left a note stuck to the table: Gone to Michael’s. Back tonight, Tim. The sky was high and soft and light outside, though the sun still wasn?t up. Even the highway up the hill was quiet as he made his way down the street. The wind from the sea was fresh and sweet. The sand hills still breathed heat from yesterday?s sun, though the top of the sand was cool. He ran down to the beach impatiently, but there was no one, just dry sand dancing in the early wind and seabirds marching up and down watching the waves. The light changed suddenly. The first rays of sunlight stretched (延伸) across the sea. The sun was pushing its way over the edge of the world. Over the first rocks, along to the point, Tim glanced back. The beach was still empty. The sun sailed higher in the sky. He could see the cave now, even darker in the morning light. The sand turned silver then dark gold as the water flowed away from it. He had to force himself to go closer. Why was it so much more
4

mysterious now? But it would be silly to go back now after so much trouble. He needn?t go in all the way... 34. What did Tim do at the beginning of the story? A. He left the house quietly. C. He left a note on the freezer. A. had to leave the biscuits on the table B. liked biscuits better than sandwiches C. had to take biscuits instead of sandwiches D. could only find some biscuits in the kitchen 36. What made it possible for Tim to see the entry to the cave? A. The height of the first rocks. C. The change in the position of the sun. A. The sea looked like a piece of gold. B. Seabirds flew away when Tim arrived. C. Tim was the only person on the beach. D. The sky got dark as Tim reached the cave. 38. In the story, Tim?s mood changed from_______. A. loneliness to craziness C. helplessness to happiness B. anxiousness to excitement D. eagerness to nervousness B. The ups and downs of the waves. D. The vast stretch of the sunlit beach. B. He had breakfast at home. D. He put a sweater in his schoolbag.

35. “He settled for some biscuits” means that Tim_______.

37. Which of the following statements is TRUE according to the story?

C
When I was a kid, I used to spend hours listening to Adam Carolla and Dr. Drew Pinsky on their Sunday night radio show Loveline. I listened so often that I began to use one of their well-known phrases—“good times”—in my daily conversations. Scientists have a name for this phenomenon: behavioral mimicry. You?ve probably experienced this before: after spending enough time with another person, you might start to pick up on his or her behavior or speech habits. You might even start to develop your friend?s habits without realizing it. There is a large body of literature concerning this sort of phenomenon, and it regularly happens for everything from body gesture to accents to drink patterns (模式). For example, one study found that young adults were more likely to drink their drink directly after their same-sex drinking partners, than for the two individuals to drink at their own paces. And the effect isn?t limited to real-life face-to-face activities. Another study found that the same you-drink-then-I-drink pattern held even when watching a movie! In other words, people were more likely to take a drink of their drinks in a theater after watching the actors on the screen enjoy a drink.
5

At least I don?t feel so strange anymore, having picked up on Adam Carolla?s “good times”. New research published today in the journal PLOS ONE indicates that the same sort of behavioral mimicry is responsible for social eating, at least among university-age women of normal weight. That?s right: the young women were more likely to adjust their eating according to the eating pace of their same-sex dining companion. As with most experiments, these results raise a whole new set of questions. However, the finding that behavioral mimicry may at least partly explain eating behavior is important, and has real effects on health. The researchers note that “as long as people don?t fully recognize such important influences on intake (eating), it will be difficult to make healthy food choices and keep a healthy diet, especially when people are exposed to the eating behavior of others”. 39. The author takes his own example of using “good times” to_______. A. express his love for radio shows B. prove the popularity of the show C. show the influence of the hosts? words D. introduce the topic of the passage 40. Which of the following is NOT an example of behavioral mimicry? A. A boy eats his popcorn after watching the actor eat. B. A boy buys a Nike shirt when he finds his desk-mate has one. C. A girl unconsciously sits straight just as others do. D. A girl takes on the Yorkshire accent after a month?s stay. 41. It can be inferred from the last paragraph that _______. A. behavioral mimicry is beneficial to our health B. behavioral mimicry decides our eating behavior C. people have realized the effect of behavioral mimicry on our health D. It?s impossible to keep a healthy diet without knowing behavioral mimicry 42. What is probably the author?s purpose of writing this passage? A. To draw readers? attention to popular radio shows. B. To introduce behavioral mimicry and its influence. C. To appeal to readers not to fall into others? habits. D. To advocate healthy food choices among readers.

Being less than perfectly well-dressed in a business setting can result in a feeling of great discomfort that may well require treatment to eliminate (remove). And the sad truth is that “clothing mismatches” on the job can ruin the day of the person who is wearing the inappropriate attire(着 装)—and the people with whom he or she comes in contact. Offices vary when it comes to dress codes. Some businesses have very high standards for their employees and set strict guidelines for office attire, while others maintain a more relaxed attitude. However, it is always important to remember that no matter what your company?s attitude is regarding what you wear, you are working in a business environment and you should dress properly. Certain items may be more appropriate for evening wear than for a business meeting, just as shorts and a T-shirt are better suited for the beach than for an office environment. Your attire should reflect both your environment and your position. A senior vice president has a different image to maintain than that of a secretary or sales assistant. Like it or not, you will be judged by your personal appearance. This is never more apparent than on “dress-down days”, when what you wear can say more about you than any business suit ever could. In fact, people will pay more attention to what you wear on dress-down days than on “business professional” days. Thus, when dressing in “business casual” clothes, try to put some good taste into your wardrobe choices, and recognize that the “real” definition of business casual is to dress just one notch(等级) down from what you would normally wear of business-professional attire days.
8

Remember, there are borders between your career and our social life. You should dress one way for play and another way when you mean business. Always ask yourself where you are going and how other people will be dressed when you get there. Is the final destination the opera, the beach, or the office? Dress properly and you will discover the truth in the principle that clothes make the man—and the woman. Unless you are sure what to wear, it pays to dress slightly traditionally than the situation demands. 47. What is the passage mainly about? A. How to dress properly in a business setting. B. The relationship between career and social life. C. The differences between professional and casual dress. D. Dressing codes vary in different situations. 48. Which of the following statements is true? A. Every company has strict rules regarding office dress. B. You can wear whatever you like if your company doesn?t have high standards for dressing. C. You should dress according to the business setting even when there are no fixed rules. D. In companies with relaxed rules on office dress, you can?t spot a manager among others. 49. Which statement best describes “dress-down days”? A. On dress-down days, you can wear whatever you like. B. People?s clothes on dress-down days don?t receive much attention. C. We can?t judge a person?s taste by his clothes on dress-down days. D. People are usually more careful about what they wear on dress-down days. 50. Which of the following is NOT the rule offered in the passage regarding business dress? A. Remember to ask others for advice when you don?t know what to dress. B. Think about how other guests will wear if you are invited to a dinner. C. For a business meeting and a concert, you should dress differently. D. Dress a bit traditionally if you are not sure what to wear. 第二节 补全对话(共 5 小题;每小题 2 分,满分 10 分) 根据对话内容, 从对话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。 W: Well, I?d like to think about the chair. But it?s not exactly what I had in mind. M: I can assure you that you won?t find anything more reasonable or more comfortable. 51 W: I?m worried about the color. 52 M: Oh, it washes very easily.

成都七中高 2013 级高三上期半期考试 英语试卷 第二卷(非选择题,共 60 分)
第一节: 阅读表达(共 5 小题;每小题 2 分,满分 10 分) We have two daughters: Kristen is seven years old and Kelly is four. Last Sunday evening, we invited some people home for dinner. I dressed them nicely for the party, and told them that their job was to join Mommy in answering the door when the bell rang. Mommy would introduce them to the guests, and then they would take the guests? coats upstairs and put them on the bed in the second bedroom. The guests arrived. I introduced my two daughters to each of them. The adults were nice and kind and said how lucky we were to have such good kids. Each of the guests made a particular fuss over Kelly, the younger one, admiring her dress, her hair and her smile. They said she was a remarkable girl to be carrying coats upstairs at her age. I thought to myself that we adults usually make a big “to do” over the younger one because she?s the one who seems more easily hurt. We do it with the best of intentions. But we seldom think of how it might affect the other child. I was a little worried that Kristen would feel she was being outshined. I was about to serve dinner when I realized that she had been missing for twenty minutes. I ran upstairs and found her in the bedroom, crying.
10

I said, “What are you doing, my dear?” She turned to me with a sad expression and said, “Mommy, why don?t people like me the way they like my sister? Is it because I?m not pretty? Is that why they don?t say nice things about me as much?” I tried to explain to her, kissing and hugging her to make her feel better. Now, whenever I visit a friend?s home, I make it a point to speak to the elder child first. 56. What were Kristen and Kelly asked to do last Sunday evening? (No more than 20 words.) ____________________________________________________________________________ 57. Why did the guests praise Kelly so much rather than Kristen? (No more than 15 words.) ____________________________________________________________________________ 58. The underlined expression “make a big ?to do? over” in Paragraph 4 means ________________. (No more than 5 words.) 59. Why did Kristen feel sad and cry? (No more than 15 words.) ____________________________________________________________________________ 60. In your opinion, how should adults treat children? (No more than 15 words.) ____________________________________________________________________________ 第二节 短文改错 (共 10 小题;每小题 1.5 分,满分 15 分)

下面短文中有 10 处语言错误,请在有错误的地方增加、删除或修改某个单词。 增加:在缺词处加一个漏词符号(∧),并在其下面写上该加的词。 删除:把多余的词用斜线(﹨)划掉。 修改:在错的词下划一横线,并在该词下面写上修改后的词。 注意: 1.每处错误及其修改均仅限一词; 2.只允许修改10处,多者(从第11处起)不计分。 例如: It was very nice to get your invitation to spend ∧ weekend with you.
