第一节：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,并在答 题纸上将该选项标号涂黑。 A Are you an optimist? Do you look at your glass and see it as half full? Do you believe that every cloud has a silver lining and that generally things turn out for the best? Do you believe that if something is meant to be, it will be? If you reply “yes” to all of these questions, then you are an optimist. You probably are enthusiastic, cheerful and outgoing. You may well be successful at work and in love. But you may be misguided because things don’t turn out for the best. You may believe that when one door closes another one opens (for example, you may fail to land a new job, another chance will come around soon), Wrong. When one door closes, another door slams in your face. That's bitter reality. Now a book has been published which confirms what we pessimists (悲观者） have suspected all along. It's called The Positive Power of Defensive Pessimism. Its author argues that defensive pessimism can lead to positive results. Defensive pessimism is a strategy used to manage fear, anxiety and worry. Defensive pessimists prepare for things by setting low outcomes for themselves. They carefully consider everything that may go wrong and plan for ways to handle these problems. And this gives them a sense of control. Lawrence Sanno, a psychology professor, says, “What's interesting about defensive pessimists is that they tend to be very successful people, so their low opinion of the situation's outcomes is not realistic. They use it to motivate themselves to perform better. ” So far, so good. This is not rocket science. Defensive pessimists prepare carefully and consider what might go wrong, whether at work, on a date or even in a sports game. It makes sense to have a back-up plan. There are many sayings in English urging caution. For example, “Don't put all your eggs in one basket,” and “Don't count your chickens until they hatch. “To have a confident and optimistic approach to life's problems is good. But listen to what Woody Alien, the American comedian says, “Confidence is what you have before you understand the problem.” There are pros and cons to being an optimist and a pessimist. Don’t feel bad if you see the glass half empty. You are a realist. But lighten up and hook up with someone who sees the same glass half full. 41. What is the passage mainly about? A. A book that has recently been published. B. The dangers of being too optimistic. C. The benefits of defensive pessimism. D. How to become successful in life. 42. The underlined word “it” in paragraph 3 refers to _____. A. the final outcome B. their low opinion C. people's motivation D. their performance 43. The underlined sentence “This is not rocket science” in paragraph 4 means_____. A. the cost is not so high B. there is no real proof C. it's not a dangerous thing to do D. it is quite simple to understand 44. The writer would probably describe himself as _____. A. an optimist B. a realist C. a defeatist D. a scientist 45. Which of the following English expressions would a defensive pessimist believe?
A. Every cloud has a silver lining. empty. C. Whatever will be, will be. basket. B Below is a brochure about the British Library.
B. The glass is half full not half D. Don't put all your eggs in one

C Pop stars today enjoy what once only belonged to the royalty. Wherever they go, people turn out in their thousands to greet them. The crowds go wild trying to catch a brief glimpse of their smiling, colorfully dressed idols. The stars are transported in their chauffeur driven Rolls Royces, private helicopters or executive airplanes. They are surrounded by a permanent entourage (随从) of managers, press agents and bodyguards. Photographs of them appear regularly in the press and all their comings and goings are reported, for, like royalty, pop stars are news. If they enjoy many of the privileges of royalty, they certainly share many of the inconveniences as well. It is dangerous for them to make unscheduled appearances in public. They must be constantly shielded from the adoring crowds who idolize them. They are no longer private individuals, but public property. The financial rewards they receive for this sacrifice cannot be calculated, for their rates of pay are great. And why not? Society has always rewarded its top entertainers lavishly. The great days of Hollywood have become legendary: famous stars enjoyed fame, wealth and adulation (奉承) on an all time scale. By today’s standards, the excesses of Hollywood do not seem quite so spectacular. A single gramophone record （唱片） nowadays may earn much more in royalties than the films of the past ever did. The competition for the title “Top of the Pops” is fierce, but the rewards are truly huge. It is only right that the stars should be paid in this way. Don’t the top men in industry earn enormous salaries for the service they perform to their companies and their countries? Pop stars earn vast sums in foreign currency — often more than large industrial companies — and the taxman can only be grateful for their massive annual contributions to the exchequer (国库). So who would envy them their rewards? It’s all very well for people in boring jobs to complain about the successes and rewards of others. People who make envious remarks should remember that the most famous stars represent only the tip of the iceberg. For every famous star, there are hundreds of others struggling to earn a living. A man working in a steady job and looking forward to a pension at the end of it has no right to expect very high rewards. He has chosen security and peace of mind, so there will always be a limit to what he can earn. But a man who attempts to become a star is taking enormous risks. He knows at the outset that only a handful of competitors ever get to the very top. He knows that years of concentrated effort may be rewarded with complete failure. But he knows, too, that the rewards for success are very high indeed: they are the payback for the huge risks involved and once he makes it, he will certainly earn them. That’s the essence of private enterprise.
50. The author develops the passage mainly by ________. A. comparing different ideas B. giving explanations C. inferring D. listing typical examples 51. In Paragraph 2, what does the author want to tell by mentioning Hollywood? A. Pop stars now can get an even higher pay than those famous Hollywood stars in the past. B. Today filmmakers make smaller profits than those making gramophone records in Hollywood. C. Hollywood stars used to enjoy a life admired by many ordinary people. D. Successful stars in Hollywood only represent the tip of the iceberg. 52. According to the passage, which of the following can match the view of the author? A. He who laughs last laughs best. B. Success belongs to the persevering. C. He who makes no mistakes makes nothing. D. If you venture nothing, you will gain nothing. 53. The author holds a(n) _______ attitude towards the high income of pop stars. A. critical B. optimistic C. approving D. indifferent 54. Which of the following is true according to the passage? A. People are blind in idolizing stars. B. There exists fierce competition in becoming pop stars. C. The government taxes pop stars very little. D. Pop stars’ life is more luxurious than that of royalty. D Last Christmas was a very difficult time for me. My family and all of my close friends were back home in Florida, and I was all alone in a rather cold California. I was working too many hours and became very sick. I was working a double shift at the Southwest Airlines ticket counter, it was about 9:00 PM on Christmas Eve, and I was feeling really miserable inside. There were a few of us working and very few customers waiting to be helped. When it was time for me to call the next person to the counter, I looked out to see the sweetest-looking old man standing with a cane. He walked very slowly over to the counter and in the faintest voice told me that he had to go to New Orleans. I tried to explain to him that there were no more flights that night and that he would have to go in the morning. He looked so confused and very worried. I tried to find out more information by asking if he had a reservation or if he remembered when he was supposed to travel, but he seemed to become more confused with each question. He just kept saying, “She said I have to go to New Orleans.” After much time, I was able to at least find out that this old man had been dropped off at the curb on Christmas Eve by his sister-in-law and told to go to New Orleans, where he had family. She had given him some cash and told him just to go inside and buy a ticket. When I asked if he could come back tomorrow, he said that she was gone and that he had no place to stay. He then said he would wait at the airport until tomorrow. Naturally, I felt a little ashamed. Here I was feeling very sorry for myself about being alone on Christmas, when this angel named Clarence MacDonald was sent to me to remind me of what being alone really meant. It broke my heart. Immediately, I told him we would get it all straightened out, and our Customer Service agent
helped to book him a seat for the earliest flight the next morning. We gave him the senior citizen’s fare, which gave him some extra money for travelling. About this time he started to look very tired, and when I stepped around the counter to ask him if he was all right, I saw that his leg was wrapped in a bandage. He had been standing on it that whole time, holding a plastic bag full of clothes. I called for a wheelchair. When the wheelchair came, we all stepped around to help him in, and I noticed a small amount of blood on his bandage. I asked how he hurt his leg, and he said that he had just had bypass surgery (分流手术) and an artery was taken from his leg. Can you imagine? This man had had heart surgery, and then shortly afterward, was dropped off at the curb to buy a ticket with no reservation to fly to New Orleans, alone! I never really had a situation like this, and I wasn’t sure what I could do. I went back to ask my supervisors if we could find a place for him to stay. They both said yes, and the obtained a hotel voucher for Mr. MacDonald for one night and a meal ticket for dinner and breakfast. When I came back out, we got his plastic bag of clothes and cane together and gave the porter a tip to take him downstairs to wait for the airport shuttle. I bent down to explain the hotel, food and itinerary (行程) again to Mr. MacDonald, and then patted him on the arm and told him everything would be just fine. As he left he said, “Thank you,” bent his head and started to cry. I cried too. When I went back to thank my supervisor, she just smiled and said, “I love stories like that. He is your Christmas Man.” 55. Last Christmas the writer had a miserable time because ______. A. there were more customers than usual waiting to be helped B. it was freezing cold in California at Christmas time C. she was working all alone at the ticket counter D. she was far away from her family and friends 56.

The old man wanted to fly to New Orleans to ______. A. see his friends there B. spend the Christmas with his family C. visit his sister-in-law D. undergo heart surgery 58. On hearing the old man say that he would wait at the airport the whole night, the writer felt a bit ashamed. This is because ______. A. she felt sorry that she couldn’t do the old man a favor B. she realized that someone was even more miserable than she felt C. it took her a long time to find out how helpless the old man was D. the old man was like an angel in the writer’s eyes 59. The writer called for a wheelchair for the old man because ______. A. the old man had broken his leg when he was dropped off at the curb B. the old man could spend the whole night on it at the airport C. the old man was carrying a whole lot of clothes D. the old man had had surgery just before and was very weak by then 60.

______. A. the old man had told the writer a love story on Christmas B. the old man had caused a lot of trouble for the writer on Christmas C. the old man was the best gift the writer could have received on Christmas D. the old man was the only customer the writer had served on Christmas 第二节：第 61—65 题是五位人士针对”孩子玩电脑或电子游戏会影响他们的个性发展吗”的 观点,从 A-F 中选出相应的陈述与之匹配,选项中有一项是多余选项。 61. Parents need to watch the time their kids spend on computer or video games. 62. The effect of playing computer or video games on a child is different but it is there. 63. Computer or video games do affect children’s social development because they are not playing in reality. 64. If you have heard of online gaming, then you know video games can affect social development in a good way. 65. I’m living proof that computer or video games won’t do harm to kids. A. For a lot of children, computers and video games are just an escape from reality, taking them away from real life for a while, replacing a stressful or boring environment with sights and sounds kids could only imagine before. They have the ability of entertaining people’s minds while drawing in the whole attention away from real life. So the result will be like this: whenever a child can’t handle problems in real life, he might just turn to computer games. B. Reading Tom Sawyer or Harry Porter is as personal an act as playing an online game or even more personal than playing an online or two-player game. I’ve rarely seen two people happily reading ONE book together. But when kids play online games they need to work together and it encourages the development of social skills. C. Many results can occur from playing video games, from feeling abandoned and becoming addicted to getting better in touch with what other students are doing. The question here is whether or not video games affect a child’ s development, not if it is good or bad. Anything that you interact with is going to have an effect on your development. D. People blame the computer and videos, because it is an easy target to hit. If you really want to look at people being lonely, look at the school system, where teachers could easily fix the problem by doing more group work with him/her choosing the students for the group. I mean, I could play outside by myself and still be lonely. There isn’t a difference. E. I do believe our children’s development is affected by computers and video game play if too much time is spent because that’s time that a child used to be playing outside with other children. I think that some computer work is good because it trains the brain in new patterns, but time on the computer need to be limited and playing outside should be encouraged. F. I am 6 feet 2 inches, 185 lbs, all muscle. I’m one of the most popular students and I’ve had a constant 30+ hours of video games since I was in third grade. I played baseball all my life until high school, and still managed up to 40+ hours of video games. I am around the 80th position in my grade and have received many honors. So it’s not necessary that computer games affect a kid’s development in a bad way. It simply depends on how much exactly one plays, and how one manages their time. 第 II 卷 非选择题部分(共 45 分) 第三部分：写作 (共三节,满分 45 分)
