ANCHORAGE, Alaska--The 2004 winner of Alaska’s famous 1,000-mile sled-dog race, the Iditarod, won again at age 53 to become the oldest champion in 2013, a year after his son became the youngest winner. Mitch Seavey got his dogs to the finishing line first in 9 days, 7 hours, 39 minutes and 56 seconds. His son, Dallas Seavey, now 26, ended up ranking fourth, behind the older competitor, 43-year-old Aliy Zirkle, who followed four-time champion Jeff King, now 57. Mitch Seavey, who lives in Seward, Alaska, operates a seasonal sled-dog touring business. The race was Mitch Seavey’s 20th Iditarod. This year’s contest was marked by unusual conditions and unseasonable rain in the northern part of the trail, and conditions that Seavey said helped his team. “It seems like the tougher it is, the better we can do.” He also thought highly of Zirkle, a New England immigrant（移民）who now lives in Two Rivers, Alaska. “She’s a great musher（赶狗拉雪橇的人）, and she’s going to win the Iditarod sometime, and probably more than once. We just had a little more energy, I think.” Zirkle, one of the most popular mushers, was greeted by shouts of “Aliy, Ally” from the fans as she drove her dog team approaching the finishing line on Nome’s Front Street. “I am pretty happy to be here,” she said. “I was going for it.” The Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race is one of the few major U. S. sports events in which men and women compete on an equal footing. The name “Iditarod” dates from a local Athabascan term meaning “a far, distant place”. Youthful mushers in the race may have some physical advantages--they can do some things more easily. But more importantly, winning the race needs the experience in dog race. The year’s event started on Saturday, March 2 with a ceremonial nm in Anchorage. Of the 66 mushers who started the race, 10 had dropped out of competition as of Tuesday night. For his victory, Mitch Seavey will take home $50,400 and a new truck. 56. Which of the following is true according to the passage? A. Mitch Seavey is the oldest competitor in the sled-dog race in 2013. B. Mitch Seavey, who operates a touring business, is a New England immigrant. C. Mitch Seavey won the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race in 2004 and 2013. D. Mitch Seavey managed to help his son become the youngest winner in 2012. 57. On which day did Mitch Seavey probably win the champion in the 2013 Iditarod? A. On Saturday, March 2. C. On Saturday, March 9. B. On Monday, March 11. D. On Tuesday, March 13.
58. Who ranked the 2nd place in the 2013 Iditarod according to the passage?
A. Aliy Zirkle. B. Dallas Seavey.
C. Mitch Seavey.
D. Jeff King.
59. According to the passage, we can learn that ________. A. the sled-dog race is the most important sports event in the US B. experience also has a major influence on the result of the race besides age C. men and women can’t compete in the sled-dog race together at the same time D. all the athletes in the sled-dog race are limited by age to win the sled-dog race B Which comes first, happiness or money? Are richer people happier? And if so, how do people get much richer? A recent study could tell you the answer. The study looked into thousands of teenagers and found that those who felt better about life as young adults tended to have higher incomes by the time they turned 29. Those who were happiest earned an average of $8,000 more than those who were the most depressed. The researchers, from University College London and the University of Warwick, say that very gloomy teens, no matter how tall or smart they were, earned 10% less than their peers, while the ha ppier ones earned up to 30% more. Happier teenagers have an easier time getting through school, college and a job interview, chiefly because they always feel better about life. It may also be true that happier people find it easier to make friends, who are often the key to homework help or networking. A report in June suggested that professional respect was more important than dollars in terms of workplace happiness. In August scientists announced that they had found the gene for happiness in women, Alas （the same gene doesn’t appear to have the same effect on men）. And in October researchers in the UK and in the US announced that people who eat seven portions of fruit and vegetables a day report being the happiest. The big question is: if it really is true that happier kids end up being wealthier k id s, is it necessary for parents to get their kids to do the homework? The fact is that no homework will make kids happy but surely hurt their grades. Studies do show, after all, that more education leads to better-paid jobs, which may give us a deep thought. “These findings show that the teenagers’ happiness is important to their future success,” one of the report’s authors writes. “But what is the most important is that we should find a way to help children gain more satisfaction from doing schoolwork.” 60. What conclusion can the researchers draw from the recent study? A. Happy teenagers grow up to be wealthier. B. Money can make people become happier. C. Wealth has nothing to do with happiness at all.
D. Schoolwork can help teens achieve success. 61. The main reason why happier people have more chances to succeed is that ________. A. they are easy to communicate with others B. they are good at doing their schoolwork C. they are hopeful and optimistic about their life D. they eat much more fruit and vegetables a day 62. The underlined word “gloomy” in Paragraph 3 probably means “________”. A. upset B. glorious C. happy D. wealthy
63. What can be the best title for the text? A. The way to educate kids. C. How to achieve your goal. C Another day begins with the call of the phone’s alarm, Where are you? Open your eyes. Turn the alarm off and you will start working out on your apps（应用软件）. First stop, weather: Sunny day. Look outside the window. Oh, no, it isn’t. Second stop, Air Quality Index: 344, dangerous, Level 6 Severely Polluted. Mental recheck required: It really is a sunny day and the weather app isn’t lying or in need of being replaced, it’s just that you can’t see the sun throug h the thick fog. Note to self: Cycling to work is out, face mask is in. Has the world stopped turning? News app merely confirms that it’s business as usual. Another government has fallen, your soccer team has lost again, and China’s economy is still increasing steadily. Diary app informs you of all the things you failed to do the previous day and loads you up with another half-dozen tasks. Next, browse a couple of social networking apps to determine the status updates of friends. Another sound from the phone, it’s a message from your significant friend who is already at work, saying the Taobao. com order for Italian cheese is about to arrive. Apps have become part of our “every-moment” lives. Apps provide so much information. But the dark side to all this connectivity would be lack of privacy, being a slave to the app. The only real problem is that once you lose your smartphone, you lose your life. Some friends and family do not have smartphones, but prefer the old-fashioned Nokia that merely makes phone calls and sends instant messages. While I respect their purity and desire to be free of the control of technology, it’s obvious they are outsiders, and their lives are loaded up with paper and old devices. They’re still buying books at stores, complaining the lack B. The source of happiness. D. The secret of being wealthier.
of CDs on the market, watching TV and missing out on complete news cycles. Though I would add, the y have lives that aren’t spent inside small screens. My phone is a palm-sized one-stop shop and about the only thing it doesn’t do is teleport（心灵 运输）. What’s not to like? 64. The functions of apps mentioned in the passage can be listed as follows EXCEPT that _______. A. the apps can show you weather forecast B. the apps can tell you how to work directly C. the apps can inform you the latest news D. the apps can tell you what you failed to do 65. According to the passage, the author thinks that _______. A. people’s life is governed by apps C. people can’t live without apps B. people feel bored about the use of apps D. people hate apps with powerful functions
66. It can be inferred from the last paragraph but one that _______. A. more and more people like Nokia more than apps B. using Nokia can be free of the control of technology C. all people don’t like the advanced smartphones D. ordinary people don’t like shopping online D Festivals play an important role in a culture’s identity. I can’t think of a better way of appreciating a new culture than by taking part in one of its festivals. Here are some special festivals around the world. ★ Boryeong Mud Festival--Boryeong, South Korea For two weeks in July, millions gather in Boryeong to experience the grey pools and slides. What began as a way of promoting the region’s mineral-rich mud has turned into a festive party , complete with music and fireworks. While the mud is usually only available in cosmetic products, here you can cake yourself in grey as you want. ★ Holi--lndia Holi, the Festival of Colors, is a Hindu celebration full of joy and one of India’s most important holidays. During the day of the last full moon of the lunar month, usually late February or early March, the air is full of bright colored powder. The festival is celebrated differently throughout the country, but the cheerful spirit is common throughout Hindu communities around the world. ★ Koninginnedag--The Netherlands
Although their current Queen’s birthday is really during the winter, the Queen still celebrates it on April 30th,the country’s official “Queen’s Day” since 1949. Orange is the national color, and the streets become a sea of feather boas（长围巾）and body paint as crowds gather in the plazas（广场）. Amsterdam is the center of this outdoor party, with many live music acts, but nearly every town is alive with orange on this day. ★ National Elephant Day in Thailand In Thailand, March 13 is regarded as National Elephant Day to show that the Thai elephant plays an important role in the Thai history. Thai Elephant Day has been held on an annual basis since the idea was first approved by the Thai government in 1998. Special events are held at a number of venues in northern Thailand. At the Mae Sa Elephant Camp, it has become a tradition on March 13 for the dozens of elephants there to be treated to a huge feast of fruits and sugarcane. 67. What we can learn from the passage is that ________. A. Boryeong Mud Festival was originally held to advertise for their mineral resources B. people around the world celebrate Holi differently to promote their religions C. Koninginnedag--The Netherlands was celebrated on their current Queen’s birthday D. it is an international custom for the Thai elephant to eat all kinds of fruits and sugarcane 68. What is the purpose of the festival held on March 13 in Thailand? A. To call on people to protect these endangered elephants. B. To give the Thai elephant a chance to eat fruits and sugarcane. C.

Rules on how to be a fit kid Being fit is a way of saying a person eats well, gets a lot of physical exercise, and has a healthy weight. 71 If you’re a kid who wants to be fit, here are three rules to live by. 1. Eat a variety of foods. You may have a favorite food, but the best choice is to eat a variety. 72 Taste new foods and old ones you haven’t tried for a while. Some foods, such as green vegetables, are more pleasing the older you get. Shoot for at least five servings of fruits and vegetables a day-two fruits and three vegetables. 2. 73 What does it feel like to be full? When you’re eating, notice how your body feels and when your stomach feels comfortably full. Sometimes, people eat too much because they don’t notice when they need to stop eating. 74 And over a period of time, overeating can lead to unhealthy weight gain. 3. Limit screen time. What’s screen time? It’ s the amount of time you spend watching TV or DVDs, playing video games, and using the computer. The more time you spend on these sitting-down activities, the less time available for active stuff, like basketball, bike riding and swimming. 75 These rules aren’t magic. However, follow them most of the time and you can become a fit kid sooner or later. A. Drink water and milk. B. Listen to your body. C. Eating too much can make you feel uncomfortable. D. There’re a lot of discussions these days about fit kids. E. Try to spend no more than 2 hours a d ay on screen time. F. Ask your parents to help you do your favorite activities regularly. G. If you eat different foods, you’re more likely to get the nutrients your body needs. 第Ⅱ 非选择题 卷 第四部分 写作（共两节，满分 35 分） 第一节 短文改错（共 10 小题；每小题 1 分，满分 10 分） 假定英语课上老师要求同桌之间交换修改作文，请你修改你同桌写的以下作文。文中共有 10 处语言错误，每句中最多有两处。每处错误仅涉及一个单词的增加、删除或修改。 增加：在缺词处加一个漏字符号（∧ ，并在其下面写出该加的词。 ） 删除：把多余的词用斜线（＼）划掉。

I broke a vase by chances, which was quite treasured by my father. When he came back, I was too fearful that I didn’t tell the truth. The cat was his excuse. My father said nothing, and I could read his distrust. The next morning, after a restless night, I admitted to my father that it was my fault. I saw relief in his eyes. He smiled at me. From now on, I never told lies. My honesty won me great trust from others, which benefited from my growth a lot. It is the “crack” that is reminding me all the time that I have long way to go. With the light through the crack I can see the road ahead clear. 第二节 书面表达（满分 25 分） 假如你是李华，你打算暑假后到英国某人学读书，请你向该大学招生办公室主任 Mr．Smith 写—封电子邮件，申请入学资格。 内容包括： 1．自我介绍（包括英语水平及其个人优势） ； 2．申请理由（① 学习深造；② 拓宽视野，传播中国文化） ； 3．希望获得批准。 注意：1．词数 100 左右； 2．可以适当增加细节，以使行文连贯； 3．开头和结尾已为你写好，但不计入总词数。 Dear Mr. Smith, ____________________________________________________________________________ ____________________________________________________________________________ ____________________________________________________________________________ ________________ ____________________________________________________________________________ __________________________________ Best wishes, Li Hua

Text 10 Most Americans treat their pets like a member of the family.This means that Americans love their pets,and they provide them with the proper home,food,exercise,and medical care. Americans love pets and it is not just puppy love,either.Sometimes they add to the interest of their pets’ lives with entertaining videos and amusing toys.If they have an eye for fashion,pet owners can dress their pets in pretty clothes.For special occasions,they can use perfume to make their dogs smell well,less beastly.You might say Americans treat their pets like they treat their childr en—sometimes even better. The most common pets in the U.S. are dogs,cats,birds,and fish.Pets,such as dogs and cats,make good companions. But in addition to providing good companionship,pets are useful,too.For example,dogs guard property,herd cattle and sheep,and lead the blind.Monkeys,unusual pets in the U.S.,will soon become useful pets for disabled persons to have.Scientists are now training monkeys to help paralyzed persons do simple tasks,such as eating,cleaning the house,and even changing the channel on the TV set!
