Event Li Yang, one of China's most famous English teachers, apologized for b eating his American wife more than a week after she posted photos of her injuries on the web and set off a bomb of criticism. "I wholeheartedly apologize to my wife Kim and my girls for committing dom
estic violence. This has caused them serious physical and mental damage," Li sa id on his mieroblog at Weibo.com, the country's most popular social media site, on Saturday. Voices @Xuemanzi, angel investor Anti-domestic violence laws should be made as soon as possible, giving prot ection to the rights of women and children lawfully. Police should not stand ba ck from domestic violence any longer, even if no one reports them. Society, as a whole, should attach greater importance to the crime. @Zhangxiaomei Chinese are never taught about marital relations, which mean not merely li ving together. A good marriage needs to overcome three differences: family back ground, gender and personalities. In addition to these, there is cultural gap i n Li Yang's case. If the effects of these differences are not well understood, after the honeymoon period, they will turn into conflicts and endanger the ma
rriage. Li's domestic violence is a reminder that China needs such education.
@Sikaozhe, Sina Weibo user In the US, the punishments for domestic violence are even more severe than strealing. If the police arrive at the wife's call during a fighting between a husband. Eve
couple nd find injuries on her, they will immediately arrest the
n if the wife doesn't call the police, they may also show up as neighbors could well do their part. @ykxin Sina Weibo User Don't blindly worship anyone, because in every closet there may hide a skeleton. As a famous Chinese saying goes, "Only they who do well in their da ily routine tasks can fulfills their dreams on great occasions". Not surprisingly, one who focuses to o much on his career and ignores his family, like Li Yang, will fail in both. Don't judge a person by hi s career success, wealth, or any other material aspect, because what finally decides a person is his charact er. 21. This passage is focused on Li Yang's A. microblog article C. English-teaching career B. domestic violence D. international marriage . .
22. Zhangxiaomei holds the view that A. laws should be passed to protect women and children B. crazy personality accounts for violence and ill temper C. overcoming background gap is necessary for marriage D. living together is what marriage is mainly about
23. Who thinks that character plays the most important role in one's life? A. @ykxin B. @Sikaozhe C. @Xuemanzi D. @Zhangxiaomei
B It's hard to find Alice Munro in the media. Even after she won the 2013 Nobel Prize in Literature，the Canadian writer just appeared for a quick interview and then dropped out of sight. On Dec. 29，she still didn’t seek the spotlight when she was named one of the Five Women of the Year by the Financial Times. In Munro's eyes，ordinary lives always hide larger dramas. So she records what we casually think of as the everyday actions of normal people. She often focuses on life in her hometown，a small village in Ontario which she is most familiar
with. She writes about the ordinary things in the village—fox forming，trees filled in the Ontario wilderness， poor country alcohol and long last illnesses. Above all， she talks about girls and women who have seemingly ordinary lives but struggle against daily misfortune. She has a special talent for uncovering the extraordinary in the ordinary. These are ordinary people，ordinary stories，but she has the magic. Her precise language，depth of detail and the logic of her storytelling have made her stories inviting. Runaway，one of Munro’s representative works，is a good example of her writing style. One of the stories centers on the life of an ordinary woman Carla， who lives in a small Canadian town with her husband Clark. The story slowly forms a picture of Carla，trapped in a bad marriage，her unhappiness building into desperation until she decides to flee. The story of Carla is a story of the power and betrayals of love. It is about lost children and lots of chances that we can all find in life， There is pain beneath the surface，like a needle in the heart. Since she published her first collection of short stories in 1968，Munro has won many awards，with the Nobel Prize being her biggest honor. On Oct. 10， 2013， the Nobel Prize committee named Munro the “master of the contemporary short story”. 24. We learn from Paragraph 1 that Alice Munro A. didn’t get on well with the media B. was surprised at winning the Nobel Prize C. didn’t value the title of Women of the Year D. remained modest though very successful 25. What makes Alice Munro’s stories fascinating according to the text? A. The complicated plots. B. Her writing techniques. C. The humorous language. D. Her rich imagination. 26. In her representative work Runaway，Carla . A. leads a happy life with Clark B. is a faithful wife to her husband C. tries to run away from her husband D. loses all hopes for a better life 27. What is the text mainly about? A. Alice Munro and her hometown. B.The awards Alice Munro won. C.Alice Munro’s literary life. D.Alice Munro and her writing style.
Let us imagine how Pride and Prejudice, Jane Austen's most famous work, might be updated, 200 years on. Austen's popularity is rooted in her intelligence. But today she would certainly have had a very different life, as would her characters. Here's my own suggestion. It is a truth finally and universally acknowledged that a single woman with
brains deserves to have equal opportunities to men, however disadvantaged she may feel by sexism. " My dear husband," said his hopeful wife one day, " have you heard that the local store, standing empty for so long, is taken over by a bright young businesswoman?" Her dull and indifferent husband replied that he had not. "But it is, it is," she replied excitedly. Mr Dull-Husband made no reply. "Don't you want to know her plans?" she cried with some impatience. "Well, clearly you think it matters to your silly little head. .. so I'd better listen. " "Well, my dear, the rumour is that she has already set up a string of successful businesses in northern England, though how a woman can know anything about that is beyond me. She will move in herself next month. " "What is her name?" "Bingley. " "Is she married or single?" "What a question! And none of your business. But her coming will be a fine thing for our five boys. " "How so? How can it possibly affect them? " "My dear love; those lazy boys need something to wake them up. There are bound to be jobs going. " " Is that her point in settling here? Surely as a woman she has simply taken a fancy to the place. " " Nonsense, my love, how little you've noticed the world has changed. She's got a first-rate degree and some sort of business qualification, I'm told. She surely needs one of our boys! Perhaps you might give her a call. " " Me? No. Perhaps you can take an interest. You still have your looks, after all. She may even offer you a job. " "Oh, that's not likely. These new chances belong to the younger generation. But now you mention it, I think I'll go along all the same. " And Mrs Bennet went along. That was 10 years ago. She is now managing director of a FTSE-listed company. ... It would remain the case, of course, that Mrs Bennet would be one of very few women on the company board, that her salary would be lower than her male colleagues, her bonus of a more "female" dimension and her lifespan among the city's business leaders shorter than theirs. Still, she'd no doubt have enjoyed Davos （达沃斯经济论坛）—and might even have hobnobbed (攀谈) with influential figures. 28、Which of the following is TRUE according to the passage? A．Austen was born 200 years ago. B．Austen rewrote Pride and Prejudice. C．Austen's success lies in her wisdom. D．Austen's updated work gains popularity. 29、The underlined part in the passage suggests that Mrs Bennet ____. A．had mixed feelings of admiration and surprise about Bingley B．felt kind of worried and doubtful about Bingley
C．was extremely anxious to meet Bingley D．had a great curiosity about Bingley 30、In the eyes of Mrs Bennet, Bingley surely needed one of their boys to ____. A．get married to B．work for her C．help her move in D．take over her store 31、What does the writer intend to tell us? A．Women with brains can also be as successful as men. B．Women have to pay a high price for success. C．A judgment must be made free from prejudice. D．Sex discrimination still exists nowadays. D LONDON（Reuters）--Quiet please—Britain’s Queen Elizabeth is preparing to have her swans counted. Buckingham Palace has announced that the annual Swan Upping, a tradition dating back to the 12th century which involves a census（统计调查） of the swan population on the River Thames, will be conducted by the Queen’s official Swan Marker from July 20--24. “With the assistance of the Queen’ s Swan Warden, Professor Christopher Perrins of the University of Oxford, the swans and young cygnets (小天鹅) are also assessed for any signs of injury or disease， ” Buckingham Palace said in announcing the count. The process involves the Swan Marker, David Barber, rowing up the Thames for five days with the Swan Warden in traditional skiffs while wearing special scarlet uniforms and counting, weighing and measuring swans and cygnets. It may seem eccentric, but it is very important to the Queen. According to custom, Britain’ s sovereign owns all unmarked, mute swans in open water, but the Queen now exercises the right only on stretches of the Thames and its nearby tributaries. In medieval times, the Swan Marker would not only travel up the river counting the swans, but would catch as many as possible as they were sought after for banquets and feasts. This year, the Swan Marker and the Swan Warden are particularly keen to discover how much damage is being caused to swans and cygnets by attacks from dogs and from discarded fishing tackle. It is also an important year because Queen Elizabeth has decided to join her team of Swan Uppers for part of the census. She will follow them up the river and visit a local school project on the whole subject of swans, cygnets and the Thames. “Education and conservation are essential to the role of Swan Upping and the involvement of school children is always a rewarding experience， ” Buckingham Palace said. 32. In medieval times，_______. A. swans were better protected than now B. a lot of swans were killed by dogs C. swans were a delicious dish on royal banquets D. common people could catch the swans 33．We can infer from the passage that the process of counting the swans _______.
A. remains almost unchanged in the past years B. involves a lot of royal memberssj.fjjy.org C. sometimes lasts longer than before D. is always guarded by special soldiers 34．The underlined word “tributaries” can be best replaced by _______. A. districts B. Banks C. trees D. branchessj.fjjy.org 35．Which of the following is the main idea of the passage? A. Britain’ s Queen is concerned about swans. B. Britain’ s Queen orders a count of swans. C. An old tradition in Buckingham Palace. D. Queen Elizabeth will count swans herself. 第二节（共 5 小题；每小题 2 分，满分 10 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。 When we are little, we know nothing about the rights and responsibilities of adulthood.__36__ Therefore, if we like a certain toy or if we want to eat a certain type of chocolate, we think that our parents will have to buy that for us. We don’ t care that they possibly have not enough money for that. If they don’t carry out our wish, we’ll begin to cry. __637__ Whenever we begin to cry, we’ll get what we want. Still, little by little, we realize that our parents can’t offer us all that we want for certain reasons. We then also understand that parents have their rights. They have the right to scold us when we do something wrong or when they find out that we have lied to them.__38__ They choose our clothes, the food we eat, the school we will study at, the hours when we should go out to play and the time we have to return home. __39__ They are the ones to be blamed later if we don’t receive proper education. That’s why when we beat a classmate at the kindergarten, parents are the ones to apologize for our deeds in front of the teacher and the classmate’s parents. And when we get ill, they are responsible for not taking good care of us and for dressing us inadequately. The moment we become teenagers, we notice that we should be responsible for our behaviors in society. Now we have the right to be independent. __40__ It is supposed that we are mature enough to solve our problems and to make people around trust us. For some of us, this is a difficult test to pass, but it is the best method to see if we are capable of taking our place in society.

wrong. B．But at the same time they are responsible for many things that happen to us. C．Moreover, they have the right to make choices for us when we are little.
