阅读理解(40 分)

第一节:阅读下面短文并回答短文后的相关问题,从所给的四个选项中,选出最佳选项。 (A) Jason had been watching the X Games on TV. Athletes from all over the world were competing in the most amazing sports. Just then his grandmother walked into the room. “I want to be extreme. Would you really let me do that? You always worry about my safety!” said Jason. “You will have to follow some rules,” said his grandmother. “You can only ride in the park — never on the streets. You have to promise to wear a helmet (头盔). If you hurt yourself too

much, I have the right to take your skateboard away. Is it a deal?” “You bet!” Jason was so excited that he jumped off the sofa. A week later he had a board and a helmet. On Saturday, his grandmother dropped him off near the park. He was happy to have a grandmother who let him try new things. Kids in the park were moving quickly up and down the ramps (坡道). They flew into the air and landed as easily as birds. When he watched the X games, Jason felt like he was doing the tricks himself. But watching these kids up close, he knew that none of it was going to be easy. He felt a little bit scared. Very slowly he carried his board to the ramp. Taking a deep breath, he put his right foot on the board. He kicked off with his left foot. For a few seconds he glided (滑行) along, just waiting to fall. Then he came to a stop. Kicking off again, he waited for the worst to happen. Again, he stayed up. The third time he kicked, lost his balance, and fell hard on his left knee. It hurt, but it was no big deal! Why had he been so scared? Now he felt calm because things had gone wrong, and he was fine! Next time he kicked off harder and went fast and farther. “Excellent!” said a girl as she passed him. “Extreme!” laughed Jason to himself. “Not quite.” 56. Jason’s grandmother agreed to let him try skateboarding unless _____. A. he finished his homework B. he liked the sport C. he observed some rules D. he won a bet 57. Jason jumped off the sofa because _____. A. he was allowed to go skateboarding B. he was angry at his grandmother C. he was going to play outside D. he was given a board and a helmet 58. After watching the kids skateboarding in the park, Jason felt skateboarding was _____. A. easy B. difficult C. boring D. exciting

59. The girl praised Jason for his _____. A. skill B. honesty C. courage D. kindness

60.What does the underlined sentence mean in the 7th paragraph? A .It doesn’t matter B. It is a big case

C. It hurts seriously D. It has nothing to do with him ( B) As soon as you meet, or even see, a person, you form an impression of him based on his posture, gestures and facial expressions. This is why it is important to make a good first impression on the person who will be interviewing you. Within the first 60 seconds of meeting you, the interviewer will have formed an impression about what type of person you are and what kind of employee you would become, and 55% of this will be based only on your body language. Here are some tips to make that impression a good one. First of all, relax. Think positive thoughts and you are more likely to come across as a positive, confident person during the interview. Dress smartly, as your appearance is one of the first things an interviewer will notice you. Stand up straight, and walk in with your shoulders back and your head up. Try to avoid slowing down as you walk into the room because this suggests fear and uncertainty. Shake hands with the interviewer firmly. You should have a positive handshake and a warm smile. Opening your coat or jacket as you sit down shows that you, too, are open. Posture is important. You should be sitting well back in your seat. Sit up straight and lean forward slightly, but not too much. Sitting at too much of an angle (角度) expresses discomfort and distrust. Two of the most common defensivesignals are crossing your arms and legs, so try to avoid them. Another important issue is eye contact. Looking someone in the eye shows confidence in yourself and trust in the other person. However, don’t overdo it, as too much eye contact or staring will make the other person uncomfortable. Use more eye contact when listening than when talking, and when you look away, look down. Looking up at the ceiling will make you seem bored or rude. 61. The purpose of the first paragraph is to tell readers _____. A. what a good first impression is B. how to make a good first impression C. how long it takes to make a first impression D. the importance of making a good first impression

62. Which of the following does the author advise you to do when you are being interviewed? A. Cross your arms or legs. B. Open your coat or jacket when sitting down. C. Go into the room more slowly than usual. D. Avoid looking at the eyes of the interviewer directly. 63. If you lean forward too much, it means _____. A. you are very bored B. you are too nervous C. you don’t have confidence D. you don’t trust others 64. What does the underlined word mean in the 3rd paragraph? A. 防御的 B. 有敌意的 C .和蔼的 D. 自信的

65. What is the best title for the text? A. How to use body language to win an interview B. How to answer questions in an interview C. How to understand body language D. How to deal with an interviewer (C) One afternoon Peter and Jim went out for a bicycle ride. When they passed a place they saw a large area of grass and bushes on fire and a strong wind was blowing the flames towards a village. The firemen had already arrived and were trying to put out the fire. The boys left their bicycles and ran towards the village to see if they could help to fight the fire. On the way they met two firemen. “Quick, you boys,” said one of the firemen. “Come and help us to pull a pump (泵) to the stream. We can’t beat out the fire. The wind is too strong. The pump is our only hope.” The two boys ran further until they came to a heavy pump. They helped to pull it to a stream not far from the village. Soon the pump was working well so the boys went to watch the fire. It had already reached the edge of the village. The boys saw that two houses were on fire, and the flames were attacking a third building. Suddenly there was a shout from one of the villagers. “Keep away!” a voice shouted. “There’s paint stored in that building.” The boys and

villagers moved away quickly. With a loud explosion (爆炸), the whole building burst into flames, sending clouds of thick black smoke into the sky. At this time Peter and Jim began to think that the whole village would be burnt to the ground. The firemen had left the burning buildings and were pouring (浇) water onto the neighboring houses, trying to stop the fire from spreading. Then the wind died down. A second pump was brought up to help, and the fire was gradually put out. “It’s soon finished,” Peter said to his friend. “We must go or we shall get home late.” “Yes, come on,” agreed Jim, and with a last look at the ruins, they walked back to their bicycles. 66.
