What the 1 looks like is more important than what it tastes like. If companies hope to sell food successfully, the food must 2 appetizing. Television advertising of food often uses 3 . Apparently, food looks especially appetizing if it moves. Chocolate sauce looks much more 4 when you see it being poured over ice cream than it does just sitting in a jar. 5 effects also help to sell food: sausages sizzling(咝咝响) in a frying pan are mouth-watering. A TV 6 for a brand of coffee had the sound of coffee percolating(过滤) in the background. The commercial was so 7 that it lasted five years. The 8 of food and its packaging is also very important. If the color looks 9 , people won’t eat it. Nobody would normally eat blue bread or drink blue beer. Other 10 food colors are purple, gray, and in some cases, white. How people expect something to taste often influences how it 11 does taste. Researchers gave some mineral water to two groups of people. They told one group that the water was mineral water, and almost all people said, “It tastes 12 .”Then the researchers told the other group that the water was tap water. This group said the water tasted a little funny. The word tap created a(n) 13 image of chlorine(氯). It is the same with 14 . A food manufacturer gave a group of people the same 15 in a glass jar and in a can and asked them to taste it. They all claimed that the product in the glass jar tasted better. So it seems to be true. Image is everything. 1. A. company B. food C. image D. milk 2. A. look B. taste C. sound D. smell 3. A. sound B. sense C. movement D. imagination 4.

Once John J. Audubon, a bird 16 (love), wondered about this. Every year he 17 (watch) a pair of little phoebes nesting in the same place. He decided to put tiny silver bands(箍) on 18 legs. The next spring, the birds 19 the bands came back in the very same place. The phoebe, it was learned, spent winter 20 it was warm enough to find food. Today there are hundreds of birdbanders all over America. The government of the U.S. has a special birdbanding department 21 makes all the birdbands. The bands do not hurt the birds, as they are made 22 aluminium and are very light. Each band has 23 special number. On each band are these words: “Inform Fish and Wildlife Service, Washington, D.C”. Anyone who finds a dead bird with a band on its legs 24 (ask) to send the band to Washington with a note 25 (tell) where the bird was found. In this way naturalists add to their knowledge of the habits and needs of birds. II 阅读（共两节，满分 50 分） 第一节 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 A、B、C 和 D 项中，选出最佳选项，并在答题卡上将该项涂 黑。 A It was one of the hottest days of the dry season. We had not seen rain in almost a month. The crops were dying. Cows had stopped giving milk. The streams were long gone back into the earth. If we didn’t see some rain soon we would lose everything. I was in the kitchen making lunch for my husband and his brothers when I saw my six-year old son, Billy, walking toward the woods. He was obviously walking with a great effort... trying to be as still as possible. Minutes after he disappeared into the woods, he came running out again, toward the house. Moments later, however, he was once again walking in that slow purposeful long step toward the woods. This activity went on for over an hour: walking cautiously to the woods, then running back to the house. Finally, my curiosity got the best of me. I crept out of the house and followed him on his journey. He was cupping both hands in front of him as he walked; being very careful not to spill(溅出) the
water he held in them. Branches and thorns slapped his little face but he did not try to avoid them. He had a much greater purpose. As I leaned in to spy on him, I saw the most amazing site. Several large deer appeared threatening in front of him. But Billy walked right up to them. I almost screamed for him to get away. And I saw a baby deer laying on the ground, obviously suffering from heavy loss of water and heat exhaustion, lift its head with great effort to lap(舔) up the water cupped in my beautiful boy’s hand. I stood on the edge of the woods watching the most beautiful heart I have ever known working so hard to save a life. As the tears that rolled down my face began to hit the ground, they were suddenly joined by other drops... and more drops... and more. I looked up at the sky. It was as if God, Himself, was weeping with pride. 26. What can be learned from Paragraph 1? A. The writer lived in the hottest place. B. It wouldn’t rain during the dry season. C. All the crops in the area were dead. D. People were in great need of rain. 27. Billy walked carefully to the woods because ______. A. he was not old enough to walk freely B. he didn’t want to be followed by his mother C. he tried not to spill the water in his hands D. he wanted to attract his mother’s attention 28. Why did the writer almost scream for Billy to get away? A. Because she saw the most amazing site in the woods B. Because those large deer appeared dangerous C. Because she saw a baby deer laying on the ground D. Because the deer suffered from heavy loss of water 29. After learning about the truth, the author felt _______. A. curious and confused B. scared and excited C. moved and curious D. proud and moved 30. Which of the following is the best title for the passage? A. The Water of Life B. Importance of Water C. How to Save Animals D. Animals in Danger B Group buying is one of the fastest growing trends in South Africa today. Industry leaders are confident the growth potential remains strong since group buying is location-specific(区域性的). Start-up costs are low and profit room remains high, so many sites continue to receive invested money despite widespread criticism and Facebook’s decision to phase out of the deals business due to privacy concerns. In the early stages of all industries, some companies fail because they cannot compete with stronger companies in difficult economic conditions. To deal with difficult conditions, an alarming number of businesses are developing group buying websites in places like China and India, so the increase of group buying in South Africa is nothing more than a natural progression into the international mainstream. The group buying concept is fairly new and consumers have accepted this concept because they can now make full use of the rich information available on the Internet. Group buying is
convenient and easy so it works. Anyone can view a site, join a mailing list, subscribe to RSS or print out a coupon(优惠券). The current group buying structure offered by the industry leaders works although there are still challenges to overcome. Perhaps, the future of group buying is tied to the joining together of social media and mobile devices. Mobile devices are with us wherever we go and almost everyone is using some type of social media site like Facebook or Twitter to stay informed. Using GPS and social media technology to provide real time location-specific promotions would be beneficial to every consumer looking for the best deals in town. Pause for a moment and think about it! What is better than signing on to your phone while having fun in town and you receive a real time information that your favorite shop across the street is offering a killer deal？ The future of the group buying in South Africa is bright and we can expect to see more advanced approaches to this concept in the future. In addition to the technological advances consumers will see the range of promotions expand to include new products and services. 31. What does the underlined phrase “phase out of” mean in the passage? A. Gradually stop. B. Gradually increase. C. Begin to develop. D. Continue to enlarge. 32. The author sets China and India as examples to show that _________. A. China and India are powerful countries B. China and India are in difficult economic conditions C. group buying is successful worldwide D. group buying is an international trend 33. Which of the following is true according to the passage? A. People have accepted group buying because it’s a new concept. B. Social media and mobile devices have been joined together for group buying. C. GPS and social media technology will be helpful in group buying. D. Shops usually offer a killer deal when their customers are having fun. 34. The author’s attitude towards the future of group buying is __________. A. pessimistic B. optimistic C. objective D. subjective 35. What does the passage mainly tell us? A. The history of group buying. B. Group buying in South Africa. C. Growing trends in South Africa. D. The group buying concept. C It was one of the happiest times of my life. I was 29 and had just received my bachelor’s degree, graduating with honors despite working two jobs and being a wife and mother. My parents and five-year-old son were in the audience when I walked onto the stage at Ashland University to get my diploma. I was so excited and proud to be starting a teaching career and contributing more to my family’s well-being. But when I got home that evening, there was a note from my husband written on the back of an envelope. It basically said he had come to get his clothes and wouldn’t be back. We’d been having trouble, but the finality of that note still came as a shock. He had emptied our bank account. We
were horribly in debt. I had quit my previous jobs in expectation of interviewing for a teaching position. Plus, I was eight months pregnant. I had my son, and I was about to bring a new life into the world, so despite my deep sadness, I had to go on. The next morning, I woke up, put my feet on the floor, took a deep breath, fixed breakfast, and basically did everything I always did. I used my routine to keep me moving. After being in the military for six years, I guess you can say I relied on my training, like all good soldiers do in tough situations. One small step after one small step was the way I bounced back. And in the seven years since, I’ve continued moving forward. I got a job as a kindergarten teacher, earned a master’s degree in education, and watched my babies grow to twelve and seven. I certainly would never have chosen to put them through this, but looking back, I’m glad it happened to me when it did. It helped me find my voice and myself a lot sooner. It helped me grow independent, confident, and strong—things I’m hopefully instilling(灌输) now in my children. 36. After getting her bachelor’s degree, the author expected to ________. A. become a teacher B. be a wife and mother C. work two jobs D. get divorced 37. What do we know about the author from Paragraph 2? A. Her husband wrote a note to congratulate her on her graduation. B. She had just been to a job interview when her husband left her. C. Her husband paid off all the debts from the bank. D. She was going to have another baby soon. 38. The author’s hardships in life made her ________. A. become confident and independent B. work harder in the kindergarten C. use her routine to move forward D. feel pleased with what happened to her 39. It can be inferred from the passage that __________. A. The author’s parents helped her a lot B. The author received further education later C. The author earned a master’s degree when she was 29 D. The author didn’t know how to deal with marriage 40. What helped the author to pull through her hard time? A. The divorce with her husband. B. Her fellow soldiers in the army. C. Her decision to find a new job. D. A strong mind and love for her kids. D Stage fright or performance anxiety is the anxiety, or fear which may occur in an individual by the requirement to perform in front of an audience. It is most commonly seen in school situations, like stand-up projects and class speeches. It has numerous forms: heart beating fast, trembling hands and legs, sweaty hands, dry mouth etc. In fact, most of the fear occurs before you step on stage. Once you’re up there, it usually goes away. Thus, it is a phenomenon that you must learn to control. Try to think of stage fright in a positive way. It heightens your energy, adds color to your cheeks. With these good side effects you will actually look healthier and more physically attractive. Many of the top performers in the world get stage fright so you are in good company. Stage fright
may come and go or decrease, but it usually does not disappear permanently. You must concentrate on getting the feeling out and present what you have prepared calmly. Remember “Nobody” ever died from stage fright. But, according to surveys, many people would rather die than give a speech. If that applies to you, and you are an unlucky guy who is with stage fright the whole time, try out some of the strategies(策略) as follows to help get yourself under control. Realize that you may never overcome stage fright, but you can learn to control it, and use it to your advantage. Strategies are as follows when the program begins: 1) If legs are trembling, lean on table or shift legs or move. 2) Don’t hold notes. The audience can see them shake. Use three-by-five cards instead. 3) Use eye contact. Look at the friendliest faces in the audience. Remember nervousness doesn’t show one-tenth as much as it feels. Before each presentation, make a short list of the items you think will make you feel better. Don’t be afraid to experiment with different combinations. You never know which ones will work best until you try. Use these steps to control stage fright so it doesn’t control you. Once you are used to stage fright, you will find you on the road to a great speech-maker. 41. Someone may be most likely to suffer from stage fright when he/she is ______.

As for me, I benefit a lot from my good habits like getting up early to read English aloud, going over what I have learned before going to bed, and listening to some English programs every day. In the past, I dared not speak English because I was poor in pronunciation. Thanks to my good habits, however, I have been making progress in my English speaking. Now I’m actively involved in the discussion in English classes, and also, I’m doing much better in english exams. Therefore, I think it is of great significance to cultivate good study habits. When you have made a plan, stick to it for at least one week, no matter how hard it is. Then you may find it is not as difficult as it appeared. Besides, finding a partner to study together with is also a good way to keep you motivated.
