The first grade teacher gave her class a fun 16 to draw a picture of something for which they were thankful. Most of the class might be 17 badly off, but still many would celebrate the holiday with turkey and other 18 goodies（美味食品）of the season. These, the teacher thought, would be the 19 of most of her students' art. And they were.
But Douglas made a 20 kind of picture. Douglas was a different kind of boy. He was the teacher's true child of 21 , weak and thin and unhappy. As other children played at break,Douglas was likely to stand 22 by her side. One could only guess at the pain Douglas felt 23 those sad eyes. Yes, his picture was different. When 24 to draw a picture of something for which he was thankful, he drew a hand. Nothing else. Just a(n) 25 hand. His abstract image captured the 26 of his peers. Whose hand could it be? One child guessed it was the hand of a farmer, because farmers raise 27 ．Another suggested a police officer, because the police protect and 28 for people. Still others guessed it was the hand of God, for God feeds us. And so the 29 went-until the teacher almost forgot the young artist himself. When the children had gone on to other assignments; she paused at Douglas' desk 30 down, and asked him whose hand it was. The little boy looked away and murmured, "It's yours,teacher. She 31 the times she had taken his hand and walked with him here or there，as she had the other students. How 32 had she said, "Take my hand, Douglas, we'll go outside.”Or, "Let me show you how to 33 your pencil.”Or, "Let's do this together.” Douglas was most thankful for his teacher's hand. The story speaks of more than 34 . It says something about teachers teachzrigand parents parenting and friends showing friendship, and how much it 35 to the Douglases of the world.

I don’t really understand how it happened, but it did. I heard someone yell out, but then my boat, Wild
One, went off into the darkness and I was alone in a very rough sea. I then spent five and a half hours in the water. The place where it happened was, oh, about 50 kilometers from shore. It was likely that I wouldn’t see another day, but I always thought I’d overcome the difficulties. At first I was watching out for Wild One. The rest of the crew knew I was gone, so they were sure to come back and look for me. After a while, I saw the boat’s lights when it came looking for me. They were within about 300 meters of me, but the spotlight just missed me. The reason why they didn’t see me was because of the huge waves. You know, I started sailing when I was seven, and started ocean racing when I was about eighteen, but I’d never been overboard before. I believed I was going to survive, but it was very cold, and as the hours passed I started to get desperate——and frozen! It was around 5 am when I saw the lights of a tanker coming towards me. I figured it was probably my last chance. At first, I thought they were going to miss me, and then they made a slight turn and I yelled out “Help!” and they heard me. Then another yacht appeared. These guys were terrific. They gave me dry clothes, and then one jumped into the bunk and hung onto me. They covered us with as much dry clothing as they could, and the guy in with me stayed to transfer his body heat to me. 36. The author of the passage was alone in the sea NOT because ______. A. the wind was too strong B. the wave hit the boat C. the safety belt was broken D. his boat was in the darkness 37 He was not saved by his crew because ______. A. he didn’t yell out “Help!” B. 300 meters was long distance C. he was not found D. he didn’t see the spotlight 38. It was inferred from the passage that ______. A. he was swept overboard at about midnight B. Wild One was the name of a crew member C. he started ocean racing at about seven D. he was too hopeless to take the last chance 39. One of the guys who saved him jumped into the bunk in order to ______. A. cover him with more dry clothes B. warm him with his body heat C. comfort him D. congratulate him B Suppose you work in a big firm and find English very important for your job because you often deal with foreign businessmen.

A. 60 yuan B. 240 yuan C. 720 yuan D. 960 yuan C Celebrity (名人) has become one of the most important representatives of popular culture. Fans used to be crazy about a specific film, but now the public tends to base its consumption (消费) on the interest of celebrity attached to any given product. Besides, fashion magazines have almost abandoned (given up) the practice of putting models on the cover because they don’t sell nearly as well as famous faces. As a result, celebrities have realized their unbelievably powerful market potential, moving from advertising for others’ products to developing their own. Celebrity clothing lines aren’t a completely new phenomenon, but in the past they were typically aimed at the ordinary consumers, and limited to a few TV actresses. Today they’re started by first-class stars whose products enjoy equal fame with some world top brands. The most successful start-ups have been those by celebrities with specific personal style. As celebrities
become more and more experienced at the market, they expand their production scale rapidly, covering almost all the products of daily life. However, for every success story, there’s a related warning tale of a celebrity who overvalued his consumer appeal. No matter how famous the product’s origin is, if it fails to impress consumers with its own qualities it begins to resemble an exercise in self-promotional marketing. And once the initial (最初的) attention dies down, consumer interest might fade, loyalty returning to tried-and-true labels. Today, celebrities face even more severe embarrassment. The pop-cultural circle might be bigger than ever, but its rate of turnover has speeded up as well. Each misstep threatens to reduce a celebrity’s shelf life, and the same newspaper or magazine that once brought him fame has no problem picking him to pieces when the opportunity appears. Still, the ego’s 自我的） （ potential for expansion is limitless. Having already achieved great wealth and public recognition, many celebrities see fashion as the next frontier to be conquered. As the saying goes, success and failure always go hand in hand. Their success as designers might last only a short time, but fashion—like celebrity—has always been temporary. 44．Fashion magazines today . A. seldom put models on the cover B. no longer put models on the cover C. need not worry about celebrities’ market potential D. judge the market potential of every celebrity correctly 45．A change in the consumer market can be found today that . A. price rather than brand name is more concerned B. producers prefer models to celebrities for advertisements C. producers prefer TV actresses to film stars for advertisements D. quality rather than the outside of products is more concerned 46．The underlined sentence in paragraph 4 indicates that any wrong step will possibly . A. decrease the popularity of a celebrity and the sales of his products B. damage the image of a celebrity in the eyes of the general public C. cut short the artistic career of a celebrity in show business D. influence the price of a celebrity’s products 47．The passage is mainly about . A. celebrity and personal style B. celebrity and markets potential C. celebrity and fashion design D. celebrity and clothing industry D The basenji is a central African hunting dog. It comes from a country called Chad, which is north of the Central African Republic. The basenji was well—known as the "silent dog" because for centuries no basenjis has ever been known to bark . Then at a dog show in London in 1953, a basenji actually barked. As well as being clever, basenjis are known for their natural courage and are still popular hunting dogs in Africa.

Dad, in a hurry to get home before dark so he could go for a run, had forgotten to wear his safety belt-- a mistake 75% of US population make every day. The big question is why. There have been many myths about safety belt ever since their first appearance in cars some forty years ago. The following are three of the most common. w.w.w.k.s.5.u.c.o.m Myth the Number One: It's best to be "thrown clear" of a serious accident. Truth: Sorry, but any accident serious enough to "throw you clear" is able going to be serious enough to give you a very bad landing. And chances are you'll have traveled through a windshield (挡风玻璃)or door to do it. Studies show that chances of dying after a car accident are twenty-five times in cases where people are "thrown clear". Myth Number Two: Safety-bets "trap" people in cars that are burning or sinking in water. Truth: Sorry again, but studies show that people knocked unconscious (昏迷) due to not wearing safety belts have a greater chance of dying in these accidents. People wearing safety belts are usually protected to the point of having in these accidents. People wearing safety belts are usually protected to the point of having a clear head to free themselves from such dangerous situation, not to be trapped in them. Myth Number Three: Safety belts aren't needed at speeds of less than 30 miles per hour (mph). Truth: When two cars traveling at 30 mph hit each other, an unbelted driver would meet the windshield with a force equal to diving headfirst into the ground from a height of 10 metres. 51. Why did Elizabeth say to her father, "But, Dad, you can't be healthy if you're dead"? A. He was driving at great speed. B. He was running across the street. C. He didn't have his safety belt on. D. He didn't take his medicine on time. 52. The reason father was in a hurry to get home was that he __________. A. wasn't feeling very well B. hated to drive in the dark C. wanted to take some exercise D. didn't want to be caught by the people 53. According to the text, to be "thrown clear" of a serious accident is very dangerous because you _____ . A. may be knocked down by other cars. B. may get serious hurt thrown out of the car C. may find it impossible to get away from the seat D. may get caught in the car door 54. Some people prefer to drive without wearing a safety belt because they believe _______. A. the belt prevents them from escaping in an accident B. they will be unable to think clearly in an accident C. they will be caught when help comes D. cars catch fire easily 55. What is the advice given in the test?

Drive slowly while you're not wearing a safety belt. 第三部分：书面表达（共两节，满分 45 分） 第一节：阅读表达（共 5 小题；每小题 3 分，满分 15 分） 阅读下面的短文，并根据短文后的要求答题（请注意问题后的字数要求） 。 In the year 2020,the world is going to have a population of about 10billion.Most scientists agree that the most severe problem is food supply. Who is going to feed all those people?Where is the food going to come from?Are we going to have enough food?Are we going to produce more artificial food? One way of improving the situation is for people to eat less meat.Why?Because it takes 4kilos of grain protein to produce half a kilo of meat protein.Clearly, there is not going to be sufficient meat protein for 10 billion people.Therefore,it will also be necessary to change eating habits because meat is the main part of many people’s food today. A possible solution to this latter problem is the soybean. The soybean plant produces beans which have a very high fat and protein content. Scientists can now make these look and taste like real meat. They can also make many other artificial products such as soybean milk, for example, which has a taste of milk and can be used in cooking in very much the same ways as cow’s milk.In fact,one woman in the United States fed her family only on soybeans for a year! She gave them soybean beef, soybean chicken,and sometimes just soybeans.Possibly,we are all going to eat soybeans in the future and finally give up meat completely from our tables. 1 What is the main subject of the passage? ________________________________________________________ 2 According to the passage,why will meat completely disappear in the future? ________________________________________________________ 3 According to the passage ,what is the main part of food that many people are eating today? ________________________________________________________ 4 In this passage,what is artificial food made from? ________________________________________________________ 5 In what aspect soybean meat is similar to real meat? 第二节 短文写作（满分 30 分） 目前，不少人在写作文或交流时喜欢使用网络语言。就此现象，你班最近举行了一场讨论。 请根据下表的提示，客观地介绍讨论的情况及你的观点。 40%的同学认为 1．有点荒诞，有时让人无法理解 2．违背了汉语的语法规则，对学习 毫无帮助 注意： 1. 对所给提示，不要简单翻译，可适当增加细节，使行文连贯。 2. 词数 130 左右。开头已给出，不计入总词数。 Nowadays, with the development of the Internet, there came a kind of language called Web 60%的同学认为 1． 幽默， 使语言更生动 2．有助于表达思想 …… 你的观点

写作 Nowadays, with the development of the Internet, there came a kind of language called Web Language. Recently, our class has held a discussion on whether it’s good for students to use Web Language in writing compositions or communicating. 40% of the students are not in favor of the idea of using Web Language, thinking it ridiculous to see or hear words which are not commonly used in our daily life. Worse still, it’s hard for them to make themselves understood. In their opinion, it is against Chinese grammar, and it’s not beneficial to students’ studies. However, the rest of the students are fond of it. They think what they say will sound humorous, which makes the language more lively. Moreover, it is of special help for them to express themselves freely. In my opinion, it is a phenomenon worth thinking about. I don’t think it good to use Web Language. It may be fashionable as some think, but you may also make your idea confusing, leaving other people at a loss.
