第三部分 阅读理解(共 20 小题；每小题 2 分,满分 40 分) 阅读下列短文,从每题所给的四个选项(A、B、C 和 D)中,选出最佳选项。 A When women sit together to watch a movie on TV, they usually talk simultaneously (同时的) about a variety of subjects, including children, men, careers and what’s happening in their lives. When groups of men and women watch a movie together, the men usually end up telling the women to shut up. Men can either talk or watch the screen—they can’t do both—and they don’t understand that women can. Besides, women consider that the point of all getting together is to have a good time and develop relationships—not just to sit there like couch potatoes staring at the screen. During the ad breaks, a man often asks a woman to explain the plot and tell him where the relationship between the characters is going. He is unable, unlike women, to read the body language signals that reveal how the characters are feeling emotionally. Since women originally spent their days with the other women and children in the group, they developed the ability to communicate successfully in order to maintain relationships. For a woman, speech continues to have such a clear purpose: to build relationships and make friends. For men, to talk is to relate the facts. Men see the telephone as a communication tool for sending facts and information to other people, but a woman sees it as a means of bonding. A woman can spend two weeks on vacation with her girlfriend and, when she returns home, telephone the same girlfriend and talk for another two hours. There is no convincing evidence that social conditioning, the fact that girls’ mothers talked to them more, is the reason why girls talk more than boys. Psychiatrist Dr Michael Lewis, author of Social Behavior and Language Acquisition, conducted experiments that found mothers talked to, and looked at, baby girls more often than baby boys. Scientific evidence shows parents respond to the brain bias of their children. Since a girl’s brain is better organized to send and receive speech, we therefore talk to them more. Consequently, mothers who try to talk to their sons are usually disappointed to receive only short rough sound in reply. 56. While watching TV with others, women usually talk a lot because they _____. A. are afraid of awkward silence with their families and friends B. can either talk or watch the screen at the same time C. think they can have a good time and develop relationships D. have to explain the plot and body language to their husbands 57. After a vacation with her girlfriend, a woman would talk to her again on the phone for hours in order to _____. A. experience the happy time again B. keep a close tie with her
C. recommend her a new scenic spot D. remind her of something forgotten 58. What does the author want to tell us most? A. Women’s brains are better organized for language and communication. B. Women love to talk because they are more sociable than men. C. Men do not like talking because they rely more on facts. D. Social conditioning is not the reason why women love talking. 59. Which of the following would be the best title for the passage? A. Women Are Socially Trained to Talk B. Talking Maintains Relationships C. Women Love to Talk D. Men Talk Differently from Women B First aid doesn't take long to learn but can help to save lives. However, there’re many misunderstandings about first aid. Below are the “most popular” first aid misunderstandings and some information on what you should do. You should put butter or cream on a burn. The only thing you should put on a minor burn is cold water ---- keep the butter for cooking. Put the affected area under cold running water for at least 10 minutes. Severe burns require special care to prevent infection. If you can’t move a limb, your bones must be broken. If you can more a limb, it can’t be broken. The only way to diagnose it is to X-ray it. The best way to treat bleeding is to put the wound under running water. If you put a bleeding would under running water you wash away the body’s clotting(凝血) agents and make it bleed more. Instead, push on the wound. Nosebleeds are best treated by putting the head back. If you put the head back during a nosebleed, all the blood goes down the back of the airway. Instead, advise the person to put his head forward to allow the blood to flow out of the nose. Ask the person to press the end of the nose and breathe through his mouth. If someone has swallowed poison, you should make them sick. If you make someone sick by putting your fingers in their mouth, the things that come up may block their airway. Also, if the poison burnt on the way down, it will burn on the way up. Get medical advice, and if possible, find out what poison was taken, at what time and how much. You need lots of training to do first aid. You don’t ---- what you mostly need is common sense. You can learn enough first aid in a few minutes to save someone’s life. You need lots of expensive equipment to do first aid. You don’t need any equipment to do first aid. There are lots of ways to get anything you need in a minute. 60. The author intends to _____. A. remind readers of the importance of first aid B. warn readers of some mistaken ideas about first aid C. show readers how to treat a patient correctly D. tell readers not to misunderstand first aid 61. Which of the following statements is TRUE according to the passage? A. Cold water is the best thing to cure a burn. B. The only way to heal a broken bone is X-ray. C. Different burns should be treated in different ways. D. Washing a wound may make it heal faster.
62. If someone has taken some poison, you’d better _____. A. try to make him sick B. get help from a medical book C. give him something to drink D. get the details about the poison he has taken 63. Which of the following things is the most important in terms of first aid? A. Professional training. B. Specific medicine. C. Some first aid knowledge. D. Expensive equipment. C When I come across a good essay in reading newspapers, I often feel like cutting and keeping it. But just as I am about to do so I find the article on the opposite side is as much interesting. It may be a discussion of the way to keep in good health, or advice about how to be oneself in society. If I cut the front essay, the opposite one is bound to suffer damage, crossing out half of it or keeping the text without the subject. As a result, the scissors would stay before they start, or half-way done when I find out the result that unavoidably causes my regret. Sometimes two things are to be done at the same time, both deserving your attention. You can only take up one of them, then the other has to wait or be given up. But you know the future is unpredictable—the changed situation may not allow you to do what is left behind. Thus you are caught in a fix and feel sad. How come that nice opportunities and brilliant ideas should gather around all at once? It may happen that your life changes dramatically on your preference of one choice to the other. In fact that is what life is like: we are often faced with the two opposite sides of a thing which are both desirable like newspaper cutting. It often occurs that our attention is drawn to one thing only after we take up another. The former may be more important than the latter and give rise to a divided mind. I still remember a philosopher’s remarks: “When one door shuts, another opens in life.” So a passive choice may not be a bad one. Whatever we do in our lifetime, wherever life’s storm makes us go, there must be something we can achieve, some shore we can land on. Don’t forget God always keeps an alternative door open for every one. While the front is closed, there must be another open door for you. 64. After reading the passage, we may know the writer is a person of _____. A. curiosity B. encouragement C. consideration D. observation 65. The underlined word “fix” in Paragraph 2 refers to _____. A. difficult situations B. your preference of one choice C. what is left behind D. two things are to be done at the same time. 66. The underlined part in Paragraph 3 tells us _____. A. life is as easy as cutting newspapers B. we can’t kill birds with one stone C. life sometimes changes completely D. it is often difficult to make a choice in our life. 67. Which of the following statements is TRUE according to the passage? A. Cutting newspapers is a hard job. B. When you are caught in a fix, you have met two good things. C. There must be a way that is better than the other. D. You should maintain a positive attitude towards your choice.
D How soon will it be before robots become so intelligent that they will be able to do things, such as teaching languages or looking after patients in hospital? Some experts believe this will happen within twenty years while others disagree. One London company, UAS (Universal Automated Systems) has already developed machines that can be used as “home helps” for old people unable to look after themselves and who are living on their own or in special homes. These machines can now do such things as cooking eggs and cleaning the floor, and the company says that future models will accept simple voice instructions and be controlled by a “brain” that is the equivalent of the latest IBM micro-computer. The director of UAS, Mr. Henry Jeffries, believes that in the next five to ten years companies will have developed even more complicated robots for use in industry. By this time, it is likely that they will also have begun to sell new forms of these machines into ordinary homes. Robots could do a wide range of household tasks, such as preparing meals, washing dishes and cleaning the house. By then, the price of such machines may have come down to as little as $1,000. But Dr. Sandra Lomax, who has done research into artificial intelligence at Sussex University and MIT (Massachusetts Intelligence of Technology), believes we have a long way to go before we can develop truly intelligent machines. “Preparing an omelette (煎蛋) may seem easy enough. But suppose one of the eggs has gone bad, even the most‘intelligent’robot would probably still use it. If something slightly unusual needs doing something that requires even a little bit of ordinary human imagination, a robot is useless. They need programming for even the simplest of tasks and are not able to learn from experience. And teaching a robot how to recognize a bad egg is far more difficult than teaching it to prepare the omelette the egg goes into,” she says. 68. The director of UAS believes that in the next five to ten years new forms of machines will _____. A. be able to “think” with their own brains and do anything with imagination B. cost much less than $1,000 C. be sued more in ordinary homes than in industry D. do more housework 69. Dr. Sandra Lomax thinks that _____. A. no robot will ever be able to prepare an omelette B. a robot will soon be able to do unusual housework people can’t do C. we can programme a robot to learn from experience D. making an omelette is easier for a robot than recognizing a bad egg 70. Which of the statements below is true according to the passage? A. All experts agree that there will soon be robots that can teach languages and look after patients in hospital. B. Dr. Sandra Lomax believes there are very great problems in developing intelligent robots. C. Robots have taken an important part in people’s daily life. D. Such machines are already being sold into ordinary homes. 71. Which of the following is the best title for the passage? A. Servants of the Future B. How to Make Robots C. Robots are More Clever than Man D. The Household Tasks in Future
E Many people write to newspaper and magazines to express their opinions. Letters to the editor must carry the writer’s full name, address and telephone number, although the information is not necessary for publication. This requirement to provide personal particulars is a clear indication that writers are held responsible for what they say. When a writer wants his voice heard, he needs to claim ownership of his voice. Responsibility is the name of the game. “People today prefer living together to putting their signatures on a marriage certificate because they refuse to accept responsibility for the relationship,” said social worker Ken Yip, “and this is what is causing a lot of family problems.” When we sign a paper, for example, a business contract or a bank document, the signature is a sign of consent, an agreement to take the matter seriously. Most governments and many organizations will not process written complaints if they do not bear the writer’s signature. The absence of a signature, they explain, tells us that the writer cannot be too serious and therefore does not deserve a reply. There are people who wish to remain anonymous （ 匿 名 的 ） for various reasons. Multi-billionaire Mr. King donates generously to charity several times a year. He gives simply because he wants to help but not for the publicity his donations may bring, and he does not want his good deeds to make news. In other cases, people insist on anonymity because they are afraid of the consequences of revealing their identity. Crime witnesses may be willing to assist the police, but most are unwilling to give their names when reporting a crime. Name or no name? The answer is very personal and lies in how much we want to get involved. We all have a name. It is a matter of responsibility to use it when we make a statement, a claim or an accusation. We all want to honor our own name, and it is only by stamping our expression of an opinion with our own name that we honor what we say. 72. What does the writer mean by saying “Responsibility is the name of the game”? A. Writers need to provide their personal information in the game. B. Publication must bear the writer’s full name, address and phone number. C. Writers should be responsible for their names. D. Names are required to indicate writers’ responsibility for what they say. 73. The second paragraph suggests that a paper without a signature may _____. A. help to end a relationship B. not get a reply C. be accepted all the same D. become a family problem 74. The underlined word “consent” in paragraph 2 probably means _____. A. signature B. agreement C. responsibility D. involvement 75. The passage is mainly about _______. A. honor and writers B. identity and signature C. signature and responsibility D. anonymity and signature
