That is one reason why astronauts on solo (单 独的) space flights were given plenty of work to keep them 36 . They were also constant communication with people on the earth. 37 , being with people from whom you cannot get away might be even harder than being alone. This is what happens on long submarine (潜水艇) voyages. It will also happen on 38 space flights in the future. Will there be special problem of adjustment under such conditions? 21 世纪教育网 Scientists have found that the longer the voyage lasts, the more serious the problem of 39 is. When men are 40 together for a long period, they begin to feel uneasy. In the limited space over a long period of time, however, the voyage may become very 41 . 21 世纪教育网 Apparently, although no one wants to be 42 all the time, everyone needs some degree of privacy. When people are enclosed together, they are in a stress situation. That means that they are under an unusual amount of 43 or stress. 21 世纪教育网 People who are well-adjusted are able to 44 stress situations better than others. That is why so much care is taken in 45 our astronauts. One of the things tested is their behavior under stress. 36. A. tired B. asleep C. conscious D. busy 37. A. So far B. After all C. However D. Therefore 38. A. long B. fast C. dangerous D. direct 39. A. fuel B. entertainment C. adjustment D. health 40. A. shut up B. turned up C. brought up D. picked up 41.

A. becoming B. choosing C. ordering D. promoting B One topic is rarely mentioned that the almost complete failure of foreign-language teaching. As a French teacher for twenty-five years, I have some idea of why the failure is so total. 46 the faults already found out — such as child-centered learning, there have been several serious 47 which have a direct effect on language teaching. 21 世纪教育网 The first is the removal from the course of the thorough teaching of English now do not know the subject of a sentence from its object. 21 世纪教育网 _48 . Pupils
Another important error is mixed-ability teaching, or teaching in ability groups so 49 that the most able groups are 50 and are bored while the least able are lost and 51 bored. Progress depends on memory, and pupils start to forget immediately they stop having 52 lessons. This is why many people who attended French lessons at school, have forgotten it a few years later. 53 they never need it, they do not practice it.
Most American schools have 54 modern languages, even Spanish, from the course. Perhaps it is time for Britain to do the same, and stop 55 resources on a subject which few pupils want or need. 46. A. Due to B. In addition to C. Instead of D. In spite of 47. A. errors B. situations C. systems D. methods 48. A. vocabulary B. culture C. grammar D. literature 49.

She had to repeat the words several times before the patient?s eyes opened. Heavily drugged with sleep because of the pain of his heart attack, he dimly(隐约) saw the young uniformed Marine standing outside the oxygen tent. He reached out with his hand. The Marine wrapped his toughened fingers around the old man?s weak ones, expressing a message of love and encouragement. The nurse brought a chair so that the Marine could sit beside the bed. All through the night the young Marine sat there in the poorly lighted ward(病房), holding the old man?s hand and offering him words of love and strength. Occasionally, the nurse suggested that the Marine move away and rest a while. He refused. Now and then she heard him say a few gentle words. The dying man said nothing, only holding tightly to his son all through the night. Along towards dawn, the old man died. 21 世纪教育网 The Marine released the now lifeless hand he had been holding and went to tell the nurse. While she did what she had to do, he waited. Finally, she returned. She started to offer words of sympathy, but the Marine interrupted her. “Who was that man?” he asked. The nurse was surprised. “He was your father,” she answered. “No, he wasn?t,” the Marine replied. “I never saw him before in my life.” “Then why didn?t you say something when I took you to him?” asked the nurse. “I knew right away there had been a mistake, but I also knew he needed his son, and his son just wasn?t here. When I realized that he was too sick to tell whether or not I was his son, knowing how much he needed me, I stayed.” he answered. 56. Why did the nurse take the Marine to the old man?s bed? A. Because he was the old man?s son. B. Because she knew that he was a warm-hearted man. C. Because she couldn?t find anyone else there. D. Because she thought he was the old man?s son. 57. Why did the old man hold the Marine?s hand all through the night?
A. Because he knew he would die the next day. B. Because he hadn?t seen his son for a long time. C. Because he was dying and mistook him for his son. D. Because he enjoyed doing that and so did the Marine. 58. Which of the following is NOT true according to the passage? A. The Marine didn?t know the old man at all. B. The nurse was careless and made a mistake. C. The Marine happened to be the old man?s son?s friend. D. The old man passed away peacefully and contentedly. 59. What can we learn from the passage? A. The next time someone needs you, be there. B. All the soldiers are as kind as the Marine. C. We?d better not correct someone else?s mistakes. D. The young should accompany their parents all the time. B WASHINGTON—US President Barack Obama said Thursday that he had known about NBA star Jeremy Lin?s talent long before the “Linsanity” phenomenon swept the sport. “I knew about Jeremy before you did because Arne Duncan, my secretary of education, was captain of the Harvard team,” Obama told the famous US sportswriter Bill Simmons in an interview. “When Arne and I were playing, he said, ?I?m telling you, we?ve got this terrific guard named Jeremy Lin at Harvard.? And then when one of my best friends, whose son is a freshman at Harvard, went for a recruiting(招募) trip he saw Lin in action, so I?ve been on the Jeremy Lin bandwagon(时尚) for a while,” said the president, who is a Harvard Law graduate.21 世纪教育网 Lin, the New York Knicks? point guard, though he was cut twice in December 2011, had had a sudden rise in the past month to high points scoring stardom in Madison Square Garden, the world?s biggest basketball stage. He is the first Chinese-American player in the NBA. He has already developed a devoted following among many Asian-Americans and in China, Taiwan, the Philippines and other countries. Clicks to the www.NYKnicks.com website surged as basketball fans from around the world search for Lin?s news and highlights. 21 世纪教育网 “He seems like a wonderful young man. It elevates(提升) this great sport all round the world,” said Obama, a Chicago Bulls fan. “And what?s been encouraging is to see how fast the sport has bounced back recently.” But he sounded a note of caution on how much basketball costs to watch. “It?s really important for professional athletes and sports owners to just remember you got a whole bunch of folks out here, all across the country, who invest so much in their teams. All they ask is not to be so selfish that you?re not looking out for your fans,” Obama said. 60. President Obama learned about Jeremy long before through . A. news reports B. a friend C. Bill Simmons D. Arne Duncan 61.The underlined word “surged” in Paragraph 6 probably means . A. moved suddenly and quickly B. stopped gradually

If a child seems upset or anxious about school, pretends to be sick to stay home, repeatedly winds up in the nurse's or principal's office, or refuses to talk about the school day, you should be concerned. One fear that keeps children from enjoying school is separation anxiety. It most frequently occurs during times of family problems or when a child is about to enter a new school. With younger kids, watch how you say good-bye those first few days of school. A firm “Have a great day, and I?ll pick you up at 2:30!” is more confidence-inspiring than “Don?t worry, I can be there in ten minutes if you need me.” You can help your child handle fearful situations--from speaking up in class to taking tests--by rehearsing at home. Help make large projects less discouraging by breaking them into manageable pieces. Teach your child to replace thoughts such as “I?m going to fail” with “I can handle this.” Some kids dislike school because they have no friends. This may be the case if your child is always alone, fakes illness to avoid class outings or gives away treasured possessions in an attempt to be liked. Often loneliness problems can be solved by improving social skills. A child may need to learn how to look others in the eye when he speaks, or how to talk above a whisper--or below a yell. You might teach a young child a few “friendship openers,” such as “My name?s Tom. What?s yours? Do you want to play games?” 21 世纪教育网 68. When a school boy has separation anxiety, he is ________. A. worried about his study
B. uncertain if he can deal with his family C. eager to go to school D. unwilling to leave his family for school 69. What is the author?s purpose in writing this passage? A. To discuss possible problems of school children. B. To tell children how to deal with school problems. C. To provide suggestions for parents to help their children in school. D. To show the possible bad effects that school have on children. 70. When a child gives his beloved toy to an unfamiliar classmate, he can get stuck in ________. A. separation anxiety B. complaints about school C. a loneliness problem D. a fearful situation 71. Which of the following best shows the composition of the passage? (1)—Paragraph 1 (2)—Paragraph 2 (3)—Paragraph3 (4)—Paragraph 4 A. (1)→(2)→(3)→(4) B. (1)(2)→(3)(4) ↗(2) (1)↘ C. (1)→ (3) ↘(4) D. (2)→(4) (3)↗
E The sky is one huge chessboard for air traffic controllers. In 314 control towers and navigation(导航) centers across the country, the air traffic controllers comfortably sit down in windowless rooms, staring at radar screens that show aircraft moving through thousands of square miles. Radio headsets make nonstop noises with pilots requesting course changes, asking for greater or smaller heights, and, on a bad day, declaring emergencies. Each controller communicates with as many as 30 aircrafts at a time, giving commands that direct each plane?s movement. A half century ago, flying was a much simpler affair. Pilots navigated by pointing their planes where they wanted to go, and it was up to the captain to avoid running into other aircrafts in the sky. But with the increase in air travel following World War II, the government stepped in to regulate—control with rules—flight paths around major airports, and the responsibility for navigation changed from pilots to air traffic controllers. 21 世纪教育网 Remarkably, navigation technology has changed very little in the 50 years since its first show. Although modern planes are equipped with computers, pilots lack the ability to “see” the traffic around them and must rely on ground-based controllers for directions. The controllers, in turn, use ground-based radar and radio transmitters to keep planes away from one another. The truth is, your car's global positioning system (GPS) has more precision than the air traffic control technology in use today. 72. The author?s attitude towards the present air traffic control technology is ________. A. positive B. neutral C. negative D. uncertain 73. In the text, ________ about the air traffic control is not mentioned. A. the present situation B. the history
C. the author?s concern D. the future development 74. The underlined word “precision” means ________.21 世纪教育网 A. popularity B. influence C. accuracy 75. Following the last paragraph, ________is likely to be discussed. A. the disadvantages of the present air traffic control technology B. the future progress in the car industry C. the experiment to use cars? global positioning system in aircraft D. the history of air traffic control techniques D. function
