You’re making a PowerPoint presentation to a group of professors, for which you have stayed overnight. Even though your knees knock together, you try really hard to pretend to be confident on the site. All of a sudden, however, your mind goes 41 , for one of the professors shoots a glance at you, and he whispers something to another professor beside him. All kinds of questions 42 your mind at the same time. Did I say something wrong? Am I making a bad impression? Such uncomfortable feelings totally 43 you. If you once found yourself trapped in this nightmare situation, you fit the typical model of a shy person. Shy people, as many experts define in their studies, usually fall 44 to what is simply a careless glance or a meaningless 45 . What’s more, because of their low self judgement rooted deeply in their mind, they often cannot take friendly comments like “If you are not so 46 , you’ make a better performance.” But being shy doesn’ 47 mean being ll t lacking in ability or competence. Rather, many shy people are capable professionals. And what distinguishes between a 48 communicator and a shy sharer is just that the latter needs to build up his self confidence. Despite the terrible situations shy people are usually involved in, there’s definitely hope for them. According to experts, 40 percent of the shy population can 49 overcome shyness if given enough encouragement and support. III.

(A) The glass window shook and Matthew placed a hand roughly through the opening to lift the latch(插销) slowly. He then climbed into the room, landing on his feet with a soft step. A sudden rush of cold air swept into the room after him. Matthew trembled and he quickly tightened his clothes. Glancing down, he saw the deep cut on the back of his hand. Sighing over his rotten luck, he tore off a piece of cloth from his coat sleeve and bandaged it. With his heart beating fast, he inched his way forward, hardly able to see anything in front of him. “Mmmm?,” came the muffled sound. Was it just his imagination? Ignoring the thought, he began to move slowly forward again. Then, without any warning, the next thing he knew was that he had kicked something soft. Matthew took out his torch. Switching it on, he found a pair of round eyes staring at him. They belonged to a little girl! Cloth in mouth, she had been bound so tightly that movement was strictly out of the question. As he was about to turn away, her tear-streaked face stopped him. Feeling sorry for the girl, Matthew used his pocket knife to cut her loose. The girl started to cry as she believed Matthew to be the rescuer who was there to end her ordeal(折磨). She leaned on Matthew tightly. This confused him further. What was he to do? After a few seconds, Matthew spoke in a gentle voice. “What happened, little girl?” From her mumbled reply, Matthew could only make out that the girl had been there for two days without food and water. It seemed that her captors had totally neglected her. Almost immediately, Matthew carried the little girl back to the window from which he had entered. As he climbed out with the girl, Matthew smiled and whispered under his breath, “I can’t believe what I’ve just done. Neither will the police.”
65. Why was Matthew trembling? A. He had survived a cut. B. His head ached. C. He found that a policeman followed him. D. He had just entered the room from the cold. 66.

Matthew found the little girl as she kicked him to catch his attention. C. Matthew set the girl free with a pocket knife. D. Matthew left the girl in the room at last. 68. From the passage, it’s known that Matthew was a kind thief because ______. A. he gave her food and water immediately. B. he treated the girl gently and helped her escape. C. he climbed in on the purpose of saving the girl. D. he decided to take revenge for the girl. (B)
You may read the questions first： Amazon is presenting to you our bargains for the year! Steve Jobs In Steve Jobs, based on more than forty interviews with Jobs conducted over two years—as well as interviews with more than a hundred family members, friends, competitors, and colleagues—Walter Isaacson has pictured an appealing up-and-down life and strong personality of a creative man whose passion for perfection revolutionized six industries: personal computers, animated movies, music, phones, tablet computing, and digital publishing. Living History Hillary Rodham Clinton is known to hundreds of millions of people around the world. Yet few beyond her close friends and family have ever heard her account of her extraordinary journey. She writes with humor and passion about her upbringing in suburban and her transformation from Goldwater Girl to controversial First Lady. Thinking, Fast and Slow In the highly anticipated Thinking, Fast and Slow, Kahneman takes us on a groundbreaking tour of the mind and explains the two systems that drive the way we think. System 1 is fast, and emotional; System 2 is slower, and more logical. In the book, Kahneman also
shows the extraordinary abilities—and the faults and errors—of thinking, and reveals the influence of personal impressions on our thoughts and behavior. Diary of a Wimpy Kid Greg Heffley is in big trouble. School property has been damaged, and Greg is the main suspect. But the crazy thing is, he has done nothing wrong. The authorities are closing in, but when a surprise storm hits, the Heffley family is trapped indoors.

Greg had a poor relationship with his family (C) With the death of congestion pricing (高峰期行车收费) which was aimed to charge drivers for driving private cars downtown to ease traffic, New York City is left with drivers still stuck in traffic and riders packed like sardines. How else can we ease traffic jams and provide decent and affordable bus and subway service? Gov. David Paterson took the first step yesterday by thinking of identifying new ways to improve mass transportation. With the income from congestion pricing gone, the city meets with heavy burden from its proposed $29.5 billion five-year capital program. In killing congestion pricing, the city acknowledged that the program is “severely underfunded” and that the shortfall has to be the first area of concern. Now we need other sources of funding or increases real estate and gasoline taxes that finance the authority. The state should now conduct a detailed environmental review of all choices for reducing traffic. Many legislators who opposed congestion pricing expressed concern that the previous plan had been given truncated environmental review, where sufficient study under the State Environmental Quality Review Act was called for. There’s time now for an all-out study of all traffic-reducing choices, from restrictions on driving days based on license plate numbers to mandated car pooling（强制共乘）. Many parties of interests, however, argue that the measures, similar to the congestion pricing, make no better sense in solving the problem. The legislature should also give New York City the tools it needs to make buses go faster. New York has the most upsetting buses in America: it takes more time to take the M15 bus from New York’s Harlem to City Hall than to travel by “Amtrak” train from New York to
Philadelphia(费城). It doesn’t have to be this way. Other cities have demonstrated that buses go faster when more dedicated(专用的) bus lanes are provided, when cameras mounted on buses are used to issue tickets to keep cars out of bus lanes and when traffic signals are designed to give buses priority. Finally, the state should allow the city to issue residential parking permits. A study showed that 45 percent of traffic in Brooklyn New York, consists of cars looking for parking spots. Residential parking permits would discourage drivers from using neighborhood streets as a parking lot, which is definitely good news to the traffic. 72. “Congestion pricing” was mainly used to ______. A. increase fund to finance railway system B. reduce the prices for taking public transportation C. discourage driving private cars in New York city D. give more attention to environmental quality review 73. The underlined word “truncated” in the passage is closest in meaning to ______. A. incomplete B. outlined C. flat D. adequate 74. The author refers to “Amtrek” in order to demonstrate that ______. A. American railway system is very efficient B. Traveling by trains takes less time than by bus in America C. Bus transportation within New York city is slow D. Public traffic service in America is of poor quality 75. According to the passage, which of the following statements is NOT TRUE? A. The lack of financial support is an important problem the city faces. B. All cars are forbidden to drive on particular days to help relieve traffic. C. Fining private car drivers for taking bus lanes makes buses faster. D. Lack of parking spots contributed to traffic jams in Brooklyn. Section C Directions: Read the following text and choose the most suitable heading from the list A-F for each paragraph. There is one extra heading which you do not need. A. Training for certain skills for future jobs. B. The relationship between FFA and American companies. C. Job prospect and member information. D. Extension of FFA into different fields. E. Basic introduction of FFA. F. Membership request and daily operation. 76. Gamaliel Rizzo grew up in a brownstone apartment in Brooklyn and is studying to become a doctor. Still, he spent his high school years learning how to raise goats and cows and growing corns and sunflowers. He even worked on a dairy farm in the summer, all as a member of the Future Farmers of America. Although the nation has shifted ever further from its agrarian roots, the organization is flowering. Begun 83 years ago and now known simply as the FFA, it is the largest vocational student group in the country, with more than half a million members and still growing. 77. Although farm employment accounts for less than 1 percent of all jobs in the United States,
One in 12 jobs in the U.S. is agriculture-related. And during the deep economic downturn and rocky recovery, these workers have actually fared better than most. That gives the FFA a calling card as an organization that actually prepares students for potential careers. About 70 percent of its members live in rural areas, and 19 percent live in small towns. The fastest growing part, however, is in urban and suburban areas, now making up 10 percent of the membership. 78 Over the past years, the group has succeeded in part by expanding well beyond agricultural science while also broadening that field to include genetics, landscape gardening and alternative fuels. Now, the group’ chapters aim to teach students leadership and job readiness as much as the s finer points of cattle care or corn fertilization. 79. Now at a time when many employers complain about the lack of basic communication and interpersonal skills among job candidates, the FFA emphasizes work on group projects and old-fashioned presentations in essays and speeches at many of its events. Even in the purely agricultural contests like the judging of crops, students defended their positions before the judges as if they were trial lawyers in court. 80. In daily operation, FFA members must enroll in agricultural courses at school, but they also need to complete much work after school preparing for speaking and business competitions, or tending vegetable plots or animals. They also must take part in projects related to farms and other firms. The group draws many students whose parents and grandparents were members, even if they are no longer on the farm. Section D Directions: Read the passage carefully. Then answer the questions or complete the statements in the fewest possible words. What do you think of when you hear the word motherhood? You usually associate motherhood with warmth, selflessness, dutifulness, and tolerance. And though most women expect that motherhood will be happy and fulfilling, the reality is that motherhood had been given relatively low respect in our society. When children don’t succeed or develop problems, our society has had a tendency to turn to a single reason--- mothers. One of psychology’s most important lessons is that behavior is multiply determined. We have to admit that the long-standing images of mothers are spoiling and unprincipled. However, when child development goes wrong, mothers are not the single person to blame even though our society models them in this way. The reality of motherhood is that although fathers have increased their family responsibilities, the main duty still falls on the mother’s shoulders. Mothers do most family work, usually three to four times more than men do. Besides, the work mothers do is repetitive and routine, often involving cleaning, cooking, laundry, and straightening up. In result, it’s reported that women enjoy family life much less than men do. Family work is included in family relations. Most women feel that family tasks are mindless but essential. They usually enjoy tending to the needs of their loved ones even if they do not find the activities enjoyable and fulfilling. Family work is both positive and negative for women. They are unsupervised and rarely criticized. They play and control their own work. However, women’s family work is also worrisome, tiresome, repetitive, isolating and unfinished. In sum, the role of the mother brings with it benefits as well as limitations. Father-mother
cooperation and respect help the child to develop positive attitudes toward both males and females. It is much easier for working parents to deal with changing family circumstances and day-care issues together. Mothers feel less stress and have more positive attitudes toward their husbands when they are supportive partners. (Note: Answer the questions or complete the statements in NO MORE THAN TWELVE WORDS.) 81. Why isn’t mother the only cause of children’s problems? 82. What are the two factors that make family life less enjoyable for women? 83. Despite their personal dislike of family work, women do family work because they are willing to ______. 84. The kid learns to look on males and females positively with the help of ______. 第 II 卷 （共 45 分） I.
