考点：考察社会知识类短文 四：阅读理解（共两节，每小题 2 分，共 50 分） 第一节：阅读下列短文，从每题所给的四个选项中，选出最佳选项。 A “Everybody loves a bargain.” One person's useless, ugly, or broken object can be another person's bargain. That is why so many Americans do not throw things away. They put them outside their houses. They put on a “For Sale” sign. And, as simple as that, they have a yard sale. The sellers put a paid announcement(付费通告)in a local newspaper. It tells when and where the yard sale will take place. These sales are very popular during weekends in spring, summer, and autumn. Early in the morning, all the things to be sold are carried out of the house. Then they sit all day in the sunlight----like tired guests at a party----waiting for someone to take them home. Just about anything can be sold at a yard sale. Sometimes, there are more clothes than anything else. Cooking equipment is also popular. So are old toys, tools, books, tables and chairs. Then there are objects called “white elephants”. A white elephant is something you think is
extremely ugly or useless. It may be an electric light shaped like a fish. You feel a sharp pain whenever you look at it. To someone else, however, it might be a thing of beauty and joy. Some people go to yard sales to find a special thing that they collect. It may be old toy trains, for example, or painting of dogs. Experts say more Americans are collecting old things now than ever before. Most people who go to yard sales, however, are not looking for anything special. They might buy an object simply because it costs so little. They enjoy negotiating(谈判) over prices, even if they really do not need the object. Later, they may hold their own yard to sell all the things they have bought.
【小题 1】 What kind of things will go to a yard sale?
A. Cheap and ugly things. C. Things out of season.
【小题 2】A white elephant refers to _________.
B. Things people no longer use. D. Things of great value.
A. something that can cause a feeling of pain B. something disliked by the owners while appreciated by others C. something sold at the lowest prices D. a toy shaped like a fish
【小题 3】 Most people go to yard sales to________.
A. find valuable paintings C. find a bargain
B. look for something special D. kill their time
【小题 4】Which of the following is NOT true about a yard sale?
A. It may not be held when the weather is very cold. B. It can last for a whole day. C. It is usually held with a party. D. It is held outdoors.
【小题 5】We can infer from the last paragraph that__________.
A. people may find something of great value on a yard sale B. yard sales only attract those who have a low income C. things on a yard sale can cost people a lot D. most people don’t want to go to yard sales.
B Imagine, one day，getting out of bed in Beijing and being at your office in Shanghai in only a couple of hours， and then， after a full day of work， going back home to Beijing and having dinner there．
Sounds unusual，doesn't it? But it's not that unrealistic，with the development of China’s high-speed railway system．And that’s not all．China has an even greater high-speed railway plan — to connect the country with Southeast Asia，and eventually Eastern Europe． China is negotiating to extend its own high-speed railway network to up to 17 countries in 10 to 15 years，eventually reaching London and Singapore． China has proposed three such projects．The first would possibly connect Kunming with Singapore via Vietnam and Malaysia．Another could start in Urumqi and go through Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan，and possibly to Germany．The third would start in the northeast and go north through Russia and then into Western Europe． If China’s plan for the high-speed railway goes forward，people could zip over from London to Beijing in under two days． The new system would still follow China’s high-speed railway standard．And the trains would be able to go 346 kilometers an hour. China’s bullet train（高速客车） ，the one connecting Wuhan to Guangzhou，already has the World’s fastest average speed．It covers 1,069 kilometers in about three hours． Of course，there are some technical challenges to overcome．There are so many issues that need to be settled，such as safety，rail gauge（轨距） ，maintenance of railway tracks．So，it’s important to pay attention to every detail． But the key issue is really money．China is already spending hundreds of billions of yuan on domestic railway expansion． China prefers that the other countries pay in natural resources rather than with capital investment．Resources from those countries could stream into China to sustain development． It’ll be a win-win project． For other countries，the railway network will definitely create more opportunities for business，tourism and so on，not to mention the better communication among those countries． For China，such a project would not only connect it with the rest of Asia and bring some much-needed resources，but would also help develop China’s far west．We foresee that in the coming decades，millions of people will migrate to the western regions，where the land is empty and resources unused．With high-speed trains，people will set up factories and business centers in the west once and for all．And they’ll trade with Central Asian and Eastern European countries．
【小题 1】 China’s new high-speed railway plan will be a win-win project because ______.
A. China will get much-needed resources and develop its western regions B. China and the countries involved will benefit from the project in various ways C. China will develop its railway system and communication with other countries D. The foreign countries involved will develop their business and tourism
【小题 2】According to the passage，the greatest challenge to the new high-speed railway plan is
________. A. technical issues C. financial problems B. safety of the system D. maintenance of railway tracks
【小题 3】Which of the following words best describes the author’s attitude towards China’s
high-speed railway plan? A. Critical． B. Reserved． C. Doubtful． D. Positive．
【小题 4】 Which of the following might be the best title for the passage?
A. New Railway Standards. C. High-speed Bullet Trains.
B. Big Railway Dreams. D. International Railway Network
C If English means endless new words, difficult grammar and sometimes strange pronunciation, you are wrong. Haven’t you noticed that you have become smarter since you started to learn a language? According to a new study by a British university, learning a second language can lead to an increase in your brain power. Researchers found that learning other languages changes grey matter. This is the area of the brain which processes information. It is similar to the way that exercise builds muscles. The study also found the younger people learn a second language, the greater the effect is. A team led by Dr Andrea Mechelli, from University College London, took a group of Britons who only spoke English. They were compared with a group of “early bilinguals” who had learnt a second language before the age of five, as well as a number of later learners.
Scans showed that grey matter density(密度)in the brain was greater in bilinguals than in people without a second language. But the longer a person waited before mastering a new language, the smaller the difference.? “Our findings suggest that the structure of the brain is changed by the experience of learning a second language,” said the scientists.? It means that the change itself increases the ability to learn.? Professor Dylan Vaughan Jones of the University of Wales, has researched the link between bilingualism and maths skills. “Having two languages gives you two windows on the world and makes the brain more flexible(灵活的),”he said. “You are actually going beyond language and have a better understanding of different ideas.” The findings were matched in a study of native Italian speakers who had learned English as a second language between the ages of two and 34. Reading, writing, and comprehension were all tested. The results showed that the younger they started to learn, the better. “Studying a language means you get an entrance to another world,” explained the scientists.?
【小题 1】The main subject talked about in this passage is_____________.?
A. science on learning a second language? B. language can help brain power? C. man's ability of learning a second language? D. language learning and maths study?
【小题 2】 In the second paragraph, the writer mentions “exercise” in order to__________.
A. make people believe language learning helps grey matter work well? B. prove that one needs more practice when he (she) is learning a language? C. to show the importance of using the language when you learn the language? D. say language is also a kind of physical labor?
【小题 3】The underlined word “bilingual” probably means_____________.?
A. a researcher on language learning B. an English native speaker? C. an active language learner D. a person who can speak two languages?
【小题 4】 We may know from the scientific findings that_____________.? 20
A. the ability of learning a second language is changing all the time B. there is no difference between a later second language learner and one who doesn't know a second language? C. the experience of learning a second language has bad effect on people's brain D. the earlier you start to learn a second language the higher the grey matter density is?
【小题 5】 In the last two paragraphs, the author wants to tell us that_____________.?
A. early learning of a second language helps you a great deal in study other subjects B. learning a second language is the same as studying maths C. Italian is the best choice for you as a second language? D. you’d better choose the ages between 2 and 34 to learn a second language
bilinguals than in people without a second language. But the longer a person waited before mastering a new
D “What is the most important thing you’ve done in your life?” The question was put to me during a presentation I gave to a group of lawyers. The answer came to me in an instant. It’s not the one I gave, because the situation was not right. As a lawyer in the entertainment industry, I knew the audience wanted to hear some amusing stories about my work with well-known people, but here’s the true answer: The most important thing I’ve ever done occurred on October 8,1990. I began the day playing tennis with an old friend I hadn’t seen for a while. Between points we talked about what had been happening in each other’s lives. He and his wife had just had a baby boy, who was keeping them up at night. While we were playing, a car came screaming up the road toward the courts. It was my friend’s father, who shouted to my friend that his baby had stopped breathing and was being rushed to the hospital. In a flash my friend was in the car and gone, disappearing in a cloud of dust. For a moment I just stood there, paralyzed(呆若木鸡). Then I tried to figure out what I should do. Follow my friend to the hospital? There was nothing I could accomplish there, I convinced myself. My friend’s son was in the care of doctors and nurses, and nothing I could do or say would affect the outcome. Be there for moral support? Well, maybe. But my friend and his wife both had large families, and I knew they’d be surrounded by relatives who would provide more than enough comfort and support, whatever happened. All I could do at the hospital, I decided, was to get in the way. Also, I had planned a full day with my family, who were waiting for me to get home. So I decided to head back to my house and check in my friend later.
As I started my car, I realized that my friend had left his truck and keys at the courts. I now faced another problem. I couldn’t leave the keys in the truck. So I decided to go to the hospital and give him the keys. When I arrived, I was directed to a room where my friend and his wife were waiting. As I had thought, the room was filled with family members silently watching my friend comfort his wife. I went in and stood by the door, trying to decide what to do next. Soon a doctor appeared. He approached my friend and his wife, and in a quiet voice told them that their son had died. For a long time the two held each other and cried, unaware of the rest of us standing around in pained silence. After they had calmed themselves, the doctor suggested they spend a few moments with their son. My friend and his wife stood up and walked past their families. When they reached the door, my friend saw me standing in the corner. He came over and hugged me and started to cry. My friend’s wife hugged me, too, and said , “Thanks for being here.” For the rest of that morning, I sat in the emergency room of that hospital and watched my friend and his wife hold the body of their infant son, and say goodbye. It’s the most important thing I have ever done. The experience taught me two lessons. First: The most important thing I’ve ever done happened when I was completely helpless. None of the things I had learned in university, in three years of law school or in six years of legal practice were of any use in that situation. Something terrible was happening to people I cared about, and I was powerless to change the outcome. All I could do was standing by and watching it happen. And yet it was critical that I do just that--- just be there when someone needed me. Second: The most important thing I’ve done almost didn’t happen because of things I had learned in classroom and professional life. Law school taught me how to take a set of facts, break them down and organize them. These skills are critical for lawyers. When people come to us for help, they’re often stressed out and depend on a lawyer to think logically. But while learning to think, I almost forget how to feel. Today I have no doubt that I should have leapt into my car without hesitation and followed my friend to the hospital. From that one experience I learned that the most important thing in life isn’t the money you make, the status you attain or the honors you achieve. The most important thing in life is the kids’ team you coach or the poem you write----or the time when you’re just somebody’s friend.
【小题 1】When he was asked about the most important thing he had done in life at a presentation,
the author _______. A. felt it was not an interesting question B. thought for a while and spoke his mind C. gave an answer from a lawyer’s point of view D. didn’t give the real answer
【小题 2】When he saw his friend rush to the hospital, the author could not decide whether to
follow mainly because he thought _______. A. he had to stay with his family C. he would not be of much help B. his friend did not need his help. D. the baby would be in the doctor’s care
【小题 3】What can we infer from the author’s description of the scene at the hospital?
A. He found out that he was in the way. B. He would have felt guilty if he had not been there. C. He regretted that he went too late. D. His friend would have felt better if he had not been there.
【小题 4】Which of the following is conveyed in this story?
A. Family and relatives can not take the place of friends. B. More people are a great comfort when one is in trouble. C. It is best to be here when someone needs you. D. You can certainly help a friend if you want to.
【小题 5】 The author learned from his own experience that_______.
A. what is taught in school is usually of no use. B. a lawyer cannot learn much in classrooms C. a lawyer should know people’s feeling first D. he needs to be able to feel as well as think logically
【小题 6】 The underlined sentence in the last paragraph suggests that the author_______.
A. is fond of writing poems B. is going to coach the kid’s team C. is determined to make friends with everybody D. is fully aware of the importance of being helpful to those in need

A. The benefit of Smart Grid technology to daily life B. Background for the emerging of Smart Grid technology C. The side-effects Smart Grid technology causes D. People’s attitudes towards Smart Grid technology E. The supporting system of Smart Grid technology F. The challenges Smart Grid technology meet with
【小题 1】 _________________
There are increasing fears of global warming. Consequently, many countries are focusing on the switch to a low carbon economy. This shift will lead to major changes in the supply and use of electricity. To meet these challenges, countries are investing in Smart Grid (智能电网) technology. This system aims to provide the electricity industry with a better understanding of power generation and demand to create a more efficient power network.
【小题 2】 _________________
Smart Grid technology basically involves the application of a computer system to the electricity network. The computer system can be used to collect information about supply and demand and improve engineer’s ability to manage the system. With better information about electricity demand, the network will be able to increase the amount of electricity delivered per unit generated, leading to potential reductions in fuel needs and carbon emissions (排放).
Smart Grid technology is profitable to consumers too. They will be able to collect real-time information on their energy use for each appliance. Varying tariffs (收费标准) throughout the day will give customers the motivation to use appliances at times when supply greatly exceeds (超过) demand, leading to great reductions in bills.
With these changes comes a range of things to be overcome. The first involves managing the supply and demand. Sources of renewable energy, such as wind, wave and solar, are unpredictable, and nuclear power, which is also set to increase as nations switch to alternative energy sources, is inflexible. A second problem is the fact that many renewable power generation sources are located in remote areas, such as windy uplands and coastal regions.
【小题 5】. _________________
Although Smart Technology is still in its infancy, experimental plans to promote and test it are already underway. Consumers are currently testing the new smart meters which can be used in their homes to manage electricity use. Cities are investing money into smart energy, due to the high population density and high energy use. It is here where Smart Technology is likely to be promoted first, making use of a range of sustainable (可持续的) power sources, transport solutions. 【答案】

分。 Last Saturday, I went to visit the museum with my classmates. We were interesting in dinosaurs, but we came to the Dinosaur World first. There we see many fossils of different kind of dinosaurs. We were both amazed when the guide showed us some dinosaur eggs which they were laid about 9.5 million years ago. Then we came to another hall, where many old Chinese inventions were in show. When I saw those old things, I felt proud of being Chinese. I think the visit very meaningfully. I should study harder to be inventor in the future and make contributions to build our great motherland.
