第三节 阅读理解（每题 2 分，共 30 分） A I was reading these interesting stories behind a group of great logos (标识) in the world. Personally Nike is my favorite one--it's so simple. And I liked the stories behind them, which made me forget all other things. McDonald's, Apple, Mercedes Benz and Adidas own great logos as well, and they are among my favorites. Nike In the Greek myth, Nike is the goddess of victory and the source of inspiration for soldiers. This logo represents the wing in the famous statue of the Greek goddess. Nike's logo was designed by Carolyn Davidson in 1971 for MYM 35, and was registered as a trademark in 1995. McDonald's The logo was designed in 1962 by Jim Schindler to resemble the arch shaped(拱形的) signs on the side of the company's then walk-up hamburger stand. Later on, the two golden arches were combined together to form the M. The McDonald's name was added to the logo in 1968. Apple There are different stories behind Apple's logo. The first logo was a reference to the religious story of Adam and Eve, in which the apple represented the fruit of the Tree of Knowledge. One year later, the second logo was designed in 1977 by Steve Jobs and Ronald Wayne, and it described Sir Isaac Newton sitting under an apple tree. This logo didn't stay long. One year later it was replaced almost immediately by graphic designer Rob Jan off’s "rainbow apple", a rainbow-colored silhouette(轮廓) of an apple with a bite taken out of it. And then the rainbow-colored apple was replaced by the one-colored logo in 1998. It has not been changed so far. Mercedes Benz The Mercedes Benz logo, which was originally created by Gottlieb Daimler in 1909, consists of a simple description of a three-pointed star that represents its rule of the land, the sea and the air. The company was founded by Gottlieb Daimler and Wilhelm Maybach. Mercedes is the name of Maybach's elder daughter, while Benz came as a result of a combination with Benz, Cie and DMG in 1926. Adidas The Adidas logo, which was created by the founder of the company Adi Dassler, represents mountains, pointing towards the challenges that are seen ahead and goals that can be achieved. The logo was used for the first time in 1967. 51. What does the author think of the stories of the great logos? A. They are boring. B. They are out of date. C. They are attractive. D. They are practical.
52. What does Nike's logo stand for? A. The goddess of victory. B. The source of inspiration for soldiers. C. The statue of the Greek goddess. D. The wing of the Greek goddess. 53. We can learn that Apple's present logo is _________. A. the religious story of Adam and Eve B. a bitten apple with only one color C. Newton's sitting under an apple tree D. the rainbow-colored bitten apple 54. Which of the following time orders describes the births of the great logos? A. Mercedes Benz→McDonald's→Nike→Apple. B. Nike→McDonald's→Apple→Mercedes Benz. C. McDonald's→Apple→Nike→Mercedes Benz. D. Nike→Mercedes Benz→McDonald's→Apple. B Lots of people usually discard the skin when they eat fruit and vegetables. However, the skin of some fruit can provide more nutrients (营养成分) and health benefits. Bananas -- When you eat bananas, don't just throw away the peel. If you are feeling down and blue, it will help you to get into a lighter mood. Taiwanese researchers found out banana peel contains serotonin(血清素), a chemical that balances the mood. To use it, simply boil banana skin in water for about 10 minutes. You can drink it when it's cool. Citrus (柑橘属类) fruit -- I know lots of people love oranges and lemons. But they usually throw away the peel and just eat what's inside. The juice also contains antioxidants (抗氧化剂), but the peel has higher concentration (浓聚物) of them. In fact, the peel has 20 times more antioxidant content! Antioxidants help fight off the bad LDL cholesterol(低密度脂蛋白胆固醇). So if you want your body to be free of bad cholesterol, don't throw away all the orange peel! Apples -- I know a lot of people eat apples with their peel on. So, just a reminder: apple peel contains about 87 percent more nutrients that help to fight cancer, according to a study by Comer University. Potatoes -- Potato skin is rich in nutrients like fibre, iron and vitamin C. Just wash the whole potato thoroughly and cook with the skin on, whether you are going to mash (磨碎) or bake the potato. In addition, potatoes help in preventing cancer and heart disease, since they also have antioxidants in them. 55. The underlined word, "discard", in the first paragraph, probably means "_________". A. take in B. look for C. cut up D. throw away 56. Which of the following is TRUE, according to the third paragraph? A. People like oranges because of the nutrients in their peel. B. The peel of citrus fruit contains more antioxidants than its juice. C. Antioxidants help to increase the level of LDL cholesterol. D. If you have bad cholesterol, don't eat orange peel. 57. Apple peel contains nutrients that can help fight _________.
A. cancer B. high cholesterol C. heart disease D. sadness 58. According to the text, potato skin _________. A. is not good for people with heart disease B. that has been baked can not be eaten C. has the same benefits as banana peel D. contains a lot of nutrients C Home to me means a sense of familiarity and nostalgia(怀旧). It's fun to come home. It looks the same. It smells the same. You'll realize what's changed is you. Home is where we can remember pain, love, and some other experiences; We parted here; My parents met here; I won three championships here. If I close my eyes, I can still have a clear picture in mind of my first home. I walk in the door and see a brown sofa surrounding a low glass-top wooden table. To the right of the living room is my first bedroom. It's empty, but it's where my earliest memories are. There is the dining room table where I celebrated birthdays, and where I cried on Halloween-when I didn't want to wear the skirt my mother made for me. I always liked standing on that table because it made me feel tall and strong. If I sit at this table, I can see my favorite room in the house, my parents' room. It is simple: a brown wooden dresser lines the right side of the wall next to a television and a couple of photos of my grandparents on each side. Their bed is my safe zone. I can jump on it anytime--waking up my parents if I am scared or if I have an important announcement that cannot wait until the morning. I'm lucky because I know my first home still exists. It exists in my mind and heart, on a physical property(住宅) on West 64th street on the western edge of Los Angeles. It is proof I lived, I grew, and I learned. Sometimes when I feel lost, I lie down and shut my eyes, and I go home. I know it's where I'll find my family, my dogs, and my belongings. I purposely leave the window open at night because I know I'll be blamed by Mom. But I don't mind, because I want to hear her say my name, which reminds me I'm home. 59. Why does the author call her parents' bed her "safe zone" ( Paragraph 3 ) ? A. It is her favorite place to play. B. Her needs can be satisfied there. C. Her grandparents' photos are lined on each side. D. Her parents always play together with her there. 60. What can be learned from the passage? A. The old furniture is still in the author's first bedroom. B. The author can still visit her first physical home in Los Angeles. C. The author's favorite room in her first home is the dining room. D. Many people of the author's age can still find their first physical homes. 61. Sometimes when she feels lost, the author will _________. A. open the window at night B. lie down in bed to have a dream C. try to bring back a sense of home
D. go to Los Angeles to visit her mom D Yawning(打哈欠) sends out certain messages – either “Oh, this movie is so boring ” or “I probably need to get some sleep”. But did know that a yawn can also help your brain to cool down when it is overheated? A new study, led by a research team at Princeton University, has indicated that yawning could be the brain's natural way of regulating temperature. People yawn more often when the temperature outdoors is lower than their body temperature but are less likely to yawn when it is hotter outdoors, according to Science daily. com. The research team did an experiment on 160 people, 80 in summer and 80 in winter, to examine how often they yawned at different air temperatures. The study found that people yawned more often in winter than in summer. Scientists say that when the air temperature is lower outside the body, there is heat exchange between the overheated brain and the cool air. But when the air temperature is higher than or equal to the body, people are less likely to yawn because the hot air they breathe in will make the brain even hotter. When people yawn, their jaw is also stretched, which increases blood flow and may also help cool the brain. The study showed that the amount someone yawned could be related to the amount of time they spent outside. The longer they spent outside in summer, the less they yawned. Nearly 40 percent of participants yawned within their first five minutes outside, but after that the percentage was reduced to less than 10 percent. However, the result was the opposite in winter. The number of people who yawned increased when they spent more than five minutes outdoors. But the change was only slight compared to summertime. According to Gallup, this is the first report to show that yawning frequencies change depending on season. This could help us to understand better the way our brains work. It may also help us understand the reason why frequent yawning can sometimes be a sign of brain disease. 62. The purpose of the experiment is _________. A. to prove people yawn in winter and in summer equally B. to indicate brain can regulate temperature naturally C. to find the frequency of people's yawning D. to show the real reason why people yawn 63. The information we get from Paragraphs.5 and 6 is that _________. A. longer outdoor summertime results in more yawns B. yawning frequency changes with outdoor time C. yawning frequency increases with outdoor time D. longer outdoor wintertime leads to fewer yawns 64. According to the text, people yawn more often _________. A. when the air temperature is lower outside the body B. when the hot air breathed in makes the brain hotter C. when the air temperature is higher than the body D. when the air temperature is equal to the body 65. What could be the best title for the text? A. Yawning Is a Sign of Brain Disease
B. Yawning Carries Some Information C. Yawning Benefits Your Body D. Yawning Cools Your Brain 第三部分 写作（共两节，满分 35 分） 第一节 补充文章（共 5 小题，每小题 2 分，共 10 分） 根据短文内容，从短文后的选项中选出能填入空白处的最佳选项。选项中有两项为多余选项。 The Benefits of Laughter In different cultures, the meaning of shaking hands, hugging, bowing and other activities are different. 66 . It also has a good effect on mental health. Studies have shown that laughter has the following five benefits. Laughter is very helpful in curing depression. Research shows that laughter is the most natural analgesic (镇痛剂) and that it has the least side effects. 67 Laughter burns calories and helps with weight loss. 68 German researchers found that 10 to 15 minutes of laughter can increase energy consumption and burn some calories. Laughter can improve immunity(免疫), too. It increases the body's white blood cells and promotes (促进) circulation of the body' s antibodies (抗体), which improves the body's immunity against bacteria. 69 Studies have shown that people who laugh a lot have a lower risk of cardiovascular (心血管的) disease. This is because laughter improves the blood circulation. It reduces the damage to blood vessels and the chance of heart disease. Laughter can not only make a person look attractive, sociable and confident, but also promote increased self-respect and give people the courage to overcome difficulties. 70 It is always good to laugh: it not only puts you in a good mood, but it also keeps you healthy. A. Laughter can make the heart stronger. B. Laughter is the best way to keep slim. C. People can ease their pain by laughing. D. Laughter can greatly improve one's appearance. E.
