Many people wanted to buy it and the man’s young assistant moved quickly through the crowd （人群）collecting money and handing out bottles of the cold cure. Then, when he had a big crowd, the man held up a very small bottle. “And now, ladies and gentlemen,” he shouted, “here is the medicine you have been waiting for . The cure for old age. Drink just one bottle of this and you will live forever.” “And , ladies and gentlemen,” the man continued, “I’m not going to charge(收费) you a hundred dollars a bottle for this wonderful medicine. I’ not going to charge you fifty dollars a m bottle. I’m not going to charge you twenty-five dollars a bottle. No, ladies and gentlemen, I’m going to charge you just ten dollars a bottle. Think, my friends, for ten dollars you can live forever.” Most of the people in the crowed did not believe this. One person shouted, “If it will make you live forever, why don’t you drink it?” Another person cried, “Yes, you look as if you are at least sixty years old.” “Thank you, sir, thank you,” the man replied. “I’m so glad you said that. My real age is three hundred and twenty –nine.” The crowd laughed at this, but there were still a few people who wanted to believe the man. One of them spoke to the man’s assistant as she passed by. “Is that true? ” he asked, “ that he’s three hundred and twenty-nine?” “Don’t ask me.” the assistant said, “I’ve only worked for him for a hundred and fifty years.” 56. What did the man sell at first? A. A cure for colds B. Empty bottles C. A cure for old age D. A medicine that made people live forever. 57. Why didn’t the people believe the man was selling medicine that could cure old age? A. The medicine was too cheap. B. The medicine was too expenxive C. He looked quite old himself D.

Not very many people wanted to buy the cold cure ? B. He charged twenty-five dollars a bottle for the cure for colds C. The man selling medicine had taken his own cure for old ages D. The assistant was younger than the man B Adopting Animals(领养动物) Would you like to adopt an animal? Although this sounds very unusual, some children have done just this. The Natural Zoo has given people the chance to adopt animal by paying for all of its food for one year. One of the animals that needed parents was a young tiger named Brocky. The people at the zoo said that it would cost about $900 a year for the food for Brocky. Not many boys and girls have $900 to spend. That is why several hundred children and grown-ups each have sent a little money to the zoo to help pay for Brocky’s food. Some children sent in only
a quarter because that was all the money they had. Other children sent in more money than that. Since so many people sent money to the zoo to help pay for Brocky’s food, he now will be able to eat as much as he wants. Brocky surely must be a happy tiger to know that he has so many adopted parents. Many children must also be happy to know that they have helped to feed him. It really will be thrilling for those children to go to the Natural Zoo to visit their adopted tiger Brocky. 61. Brocky is_______________________________. A. an animal zoo B. an adopted child C. a tiger without children’s love D. a tiger in need of adoption 62. Several hundred people give money to the zoo to help Brocky because _______________. A. its food is too expensive for one person to afford B. people don’t want to spend too much money on Brocky C. people don’t love Brocky enough D. the zoo forces them to do so 63. Children will be ________ if they go to the zoo to visit the tiger Brocky. A. frightened B. excited and happy C. nervous D. surprised 64. With so many people's money, Brocky now can _________. A. play with many toys B. live without being hungry C. eat meat every day D. have an air-conditioned room to live in 65.We can infer(推断)from the passage that ________. A. zoos are too poor to feed the animals B. there are too many animals in the zoo C. many people are kind to animals D. children love animals better than adults do C Wetlands ! Valuable Resources on the Earth There are many wetlands in China and some of them have become the world’s important wetlands. The Chinese Yellow Sea Wetlands are among them. They are in Yancheng, Jiangsu Province. They are home for many different kinds of animals. The world’s largest Milu Deer Nature Reserve is in them. More than 700 Milu deer live freely there. There are not many red-crowned cranes in the world, but every winter you can see some in the Red-crowned Crane Nature Reserve in the Yellow Sea Wetlands. The temperature in the wetlands is usually neither too high nor too low. There us a lot of rain and sunshine , too. They are really good places for wildlife. Offering(提供) food and home for some special kinds of animals is not the only reason why we need to protect wetlands. Wetlands are important because they also prevent flood. But some people want to change the wetlands to make more space for farms and less space for wildlife. Luckily , more and more people are beginning to realize the importance of wetlands and wildlife . Every year , on February 2nd , many activities are held to tell people more about wetlands. 66. The Chinese Yellow Sea Wetlands are in the ___________of China. A. east B. south C. west D. north 67.

Some people want to change _______ to make more space for farms A. lands B. world C. wildlife D. wetlands D The governments of 13 countries had a big meeting in St Petersburg, Russia from November 21 to 24, 2010. The meeting was about tigers. They talked about the ways to protect the animals in their countries. They agreed to spend more money protecting tigers and they wanted to double(使??加倍)the number of tigers in the world before 2022. Tiger is one of the world’s most endangered animals. The World Wildlife Fund says, there are only about 100,000 wild tigers now. And the number is becoming smaller and smaller. ‘If nothing happens, tigers will face disasters,’ said WWF spokeswoman Marie von Zeipel. Nine types of tigers lived 100 years ago, but now at least three of them have died out. ‘If people leave tigers alone and don’t kill them, then the number of tigers will double in 10 years,’ said Jean-Christoph Vie, a French tiger expert(专家). China is one of the 13 countries where tigers live. There are about 50 wild tigers in China now. They are the Bengal tigers in Tibet, Indochinese tiger s in China’s southwest, and Siberian tigers in the northeast. The South China tigers lived in southeast China many years ago but disappeared in the 1970s. Many experts think they have already died out. 71. What’s the meeting in St Petersburg mainly about? A. How to help tigers find a better place to live. B. How to protect tigers in their countries. C. How to stop people from hunting the wild animals. D. How to count the number of tigers in the world. 72. Which of the following is TRUE according to the WWF? A. Many tigers have died because people hunt them. B.

A. to do nothing B. to keep all of them in the zoo C. to stop people from killing them D. to build more nature reserves for tigers 74. How many types of tigers were there in China 50 years ago? A. 3 B. 4 C. 13 D. 50 75. The Chinese meaning of ‘die out’ in the 3rd paragraph is ___. A. 死亡 B. 灭绝 C. 变弱 D. 死于 第二部分 (共计 55 分) 五. 用所给词的适当形式填空。 （15*1） 1.

Colours in different animals or pests are used to protect themselves. Some birds like eating locusts(蝗虫),but birds cannot easily catch them. Why? It is because locusts __________their colours together with the change of the colours of crops(庄稼). When crops are green, locusts also look _________. But as the harvest(收获) time comes, locusts change to the same brown colour as crops have. Some other pests with different colours from plants are easily found and eaten by others. So they have to hide themselves for lives and come only at night. If you study the animal life, you’ll find the use of colouring is to protect themselves. Bears, lions and other animals move quietly through forests. They cannot be easily seen by hunters. This is because they have the colours much like the trees. A kind of fish in the sea can send out of very black liquid(液体) when it is in danger. When the liquid spreads over(散开), its enemies(敌人) cannot find it. And it swims away quickly. So it is not strong at all，but it has lived up to now. 1. 根据上下文意思，在文中两处空格处填上适当的单词。____________ _____________ 2. 根据全文大意，回答问题。Why can’t hunters see the bears easily in the forest? ___________________________________________________________________________ 3. 将划线部分翻译中文（文章最后一句话）______________________________________ 4. 在文中找出与所给句子意思相近的句子。If some pests have different colours from plants, other pests will find and eat them easily. ___________________________________________________________________________ 5. 请写出文中的中心句。___________________ __________________________________ 七. 根据首字母完成短文。 （10*1） School education(教育) is very important and useful.
