Years ago, I worked at the Ringling Brothers Barnum & Bailey Circus. One day, as I was passing the elephants, I suddenly stopped, 36 by the fact that these huge creatures were being held by only a small rope tied to their front leg. It was 37 that they could, at any time, break free, 38 strangely enough, they didn’t.. I asked a trainer the 39 for this. He said, “When they were very young we used the 40 size rope, and it was enough to hold them. As they grow up, they believe the rope can 41 hold them, so they never try.” Like the elephants, how many of you believe you cannot do a thing, simply because you 42 once before? Do you often tell 43 “I cannot dance” or “I’m not good at math”? These are 44 of self limiting beliefs. You must realize you’re 45 for them. A limiting belief that says you’re poor at math may have 46 as a reaction to the embarrassing experiences related to math, or the remarks made by someone important to you which 47 you. The cool thing is that because you create the 48 you can choose to change it! Here is how: First, 49 it with “I am good at math”. Once you change your 50 , your subconsciousness will make this 51 by driving you to act. That might be to take a math course or to go online 52 help, etc. Gradually you’ll really see your math skills are 53 . This is such a simple process that you can 54 it today. Don’t be like the poor elephant and make your life 55 at a place because of a limiting belief you developed years ago. 36. A. excited B. confused C. discouraged D. worried 37. A. impossible B. doubtful C. uncertain D. obvious 38. A. but B. or C. and D. so 39. A. case B. result C. reason D. choice 40. A. same B. bigger C. smaller D. different 41.

第三部分：阅读理解（共两节，满分 40 分） 第一节： （共 15 小题；每小题 2 分，满分 30 分） A
I had the meanest mother in the whole world. While other kids ate candy for breakfast, I had to have cereal, eggs or toast. While others had Cokes and candy for lunch, I had to eat a sandwich. As you can guess, my supper was different from the other kids’ too. But at least, I wasn’t alone in my sufferings. My sister and two brothers had the same mean mother as I did. My mother insisted upon knowing where we were at all times. She had to know who our friends were and where we were going. She insisted if we said we’d be gone an hour, then we should be gone one hour or less -- not one hour and one minute. And she always insisted upon us telling the truth. Now you can see how mean she was. The worst is yet to come. We had to be in bed by nine each night and up at eight the next morning. We couldn’t sleep till noon like our friends. So while they slept - my mother actually had the courage to break the Child Labor Law. She made us work. We had to wash dishes, make beds, and learn to cook. We had to wear clean clothes and take a bath every day. The other kids always wore their clothes for days. We reached the height of disgrace because she made our clothes herself, just to save money. I believe she laid awake at night thinking up mean things to do to us. Through the years, things didn’t improve a bit. We could not lie in bed “sick” like our friends did, and miss school. Our marks in school had to live up to expectations. Our friends’ report cards had beautiful colors on them, black for passing, red for failing. My mother, being as different as she was, would be satisfied with nothing less than ugly black marks. As the years rolled by, first one and then the other of us was put to shame. We graduated from high school. With our mother behind us, talking, hitting and demanding respect, none of us was allowed the pleasure of being a drop-out. My mother was a complete failure as a mother. Out of four children, a couple of us attained some higher education. None of us have ever been arrested or divorced. Each of my brothers served his time in the service of this country. She forced us to grow up into God-fearing, educated, honest adults. I am now trying to raise my three children. I am filled with pride when my children call me mean. Why? Because now I
thank God every day for giving me the meanest mother in the whole world. 56. According to the article, the author’s mother will ask her children to do all the following EXCEPT _________.

C Tony Blair, the former British Prime Minister, once said, “We celebrate the diversity in our country, get strength from the cultures and the races that go to make up Britain today.” People from all cultures and races can be found in every corner of Britain and each person in his or her own way has contributed to making Britain, especially in the bigger cities, you will usually see people with different hair, skin and eye colors. They may have white, brown, black or red hair, with blue, black, brown or green eyes. Many of the people you will see will be Britain people but they all look different because the people of Britain are a mixed race. Britain is and has always been a mixed race society. Early in the Britain history they were invaded by Romans, Saxons, Vikings and Normans armies and later Africans were brought to Britain by force in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries as slaves or servants. Over the years, thousands of people have been forced by persecution( 迫害) or hunger to leave France, Ireland, Russia, and other countries, and have settled in Britain. About 8% of the population of Britain today are people from other cultures and races. That is 4.6million people. According to a BBC report in September 2005, immigration（移民人数） made up more than half Britain’s population growth from
1991 to 2001. The Guardian newspaper reported in 2007 that the number of immigrants to the UK was 145,000 a year. People moving to Britain have brought their own cultures with them and try to keep them alive. An excellent example of this is the Notting Hill Carnival which celebrates the Caribbean culture and is now a very big part of Britain life today. 63.How did Tony Blair feel about the diversity in Britain? A. Sorry. B. Thankful. C. Pity. D. Anxious. 64. Why can you find people of different races in Britain? A. People like to live in big cities in Britain. B. People from many countries settled in Britain. C. Britain has attracted many overseas tourists. D. Different people have been invited to live there. 65. What does Paragraph 4 mainly talk about? A. How Britain became a mixed race society. B. Where people get the strength to come to Britain C. Where to find people with different hair, skin and eye colors. D. How people from different cultures live peacefully in Britain. 66. Which of the following is TRUE according to the passage? A. The rate of immigration to Britain increased by over 50%. B. About 8% of the Britain immigrants were Africans. C. The number of the native British today is 52.9 million. D. The total number of immigrants is 145，000. D A is for always getting to work on time. B is for being extremely busy. C is for the conscientious（勤勤恳恳的） way you do your job. You may be all these things at the office, and more. But when it comes to getting ahead, experts say, the ABCs of business should include a P, for politics, as in office politics. Dale Carnegie suggested as much more than 50 years ago: Hard work alone doesn?t ensure career advancement. You have to be able to sell yourself and your ideas, both publicly and behind the scenes. Yet, despite the obvious rewards of engaging in office politics—a better job, a raise, praise—many people are still unable or unwilling—to “play the game”. “People assume that office politics involves some manipulative（工于心计的） behavior,” says Deborah Comer, an assistant professor of management at Hofstra University, “But politics derives from the word ?polite?. It can mean lobbying（游说） and forming associations. It can mean being kind and helpful, or even trying to please your superior, and then expecting something in return.”
In fact, today, experts define office politics as proper behaviors used to pursue one?s own self-interest in the workplace. In many cases, this involves some forms of socializing within the office environment—not just in large companies, but in small workplaces as well. “The first thing people are usually judged on is their ability to perform well on a consistent basis,” says Neil P.Lewis, a management psychologist. “But if two or three candidates are up for a promotion, each of whom has reasonably similar ability, a manager is going to promote the person he or she likes best. It? s simple human nature.” Yet, psychologists say, many employees and employers have trouble with the concept of politics in the office. Some people, they say, have an idealistic vision of work and what it takes to succeed. Still others associate politics with flattery( 奉承), fearful that, if they speak up for themselves, they may appear to be flattering their boss for favors. Experts suggest altering （改变） this negative picture by recognizing the need for some self-promotion. 67. “Office politics” （Line 2,Para.4） is used in the passage to refer to____. A. the political views and beliefs of office workers B. the interpersonal relationships within a company C. the various qualities required for a successful career D. the code of behavior for company staff 68 Why are many people unwilling to "play the game" (Line 4, Para. 5) ? A. They believe that doing so is impractical. B. They feel that such behavior is unprincipled(不道德的). C. They are not good at manipulating colleagues. D. They think the effort will get them nowhere. 69. To get promoted, one must not only be competent but____. A. avoid being too outstanding B. get along well with his colleagues C. honest and loyal to his company D. give his boss a good impression 70. It is the author? s view that____. A. self-promotion does not necessarily mean flattery B. hard work contributes very little to one? s promotion C. many employees fail to recognize the need of flattery D. speaking up for oneself is part of human nature

As we get older, most of us worry about grey hair, wrinkles and maintaining a youthful body. 71 Here, Mr. Rubin, a voice expert, reveals how to keep your voice youthful. Drink more fluid and avoid spicy food You need water for the vocal cords(声带) to vibrate well. The body must keep absorbing enough water to make the vocal cords operate well. Drinking 1.5 liters of
water a day at intervals of 15 minutes is very important. 72 Rest the throat and talk regularly The vocal cords can be scarred if you use your voice during a bad cough. If you have a case of laryngitis(喉炎) with a cold, you should rest your voice for a day or two, and seek medical advice. Simply staying sociable and using your voice is very important. “As older people have less mobile, they can become socially isolated and speak less,” says Mr. Rubin. “The elderly need to communicate with people more. 73 ” 74 Good posture is essential to keeping the voice young, so we’d better stand properly. Exercise helps you take deeper breaths as it means there is better airflow through the voice box, producing a stronger tone. Sing in the shower This is one of the best ways to preserve your voice, as it keeps the larynx muscles strong while the steam lubricates the voice box. “ 75 ” says Mr. Rubin. Joining a choir is one of the best ways to preserve a youthful tone. A. Improve your posture B. By using the vocal cords, they enable the ageing process to slow down. C. But people often don’t realize the voice needs looking after. D. The Voice of Young Science programme encourages early career researchers to play an active role in public debates about science. E. Singing is to the voice what gymnastics are to human beings. F. Using the vocal cords regularly will definitely age our voice more quickly. G. Mr. Rubin advises avoiding foods with an annoying effect on the stomach, such as onions, chili, fizzy drinks and chocolate.
