Ⅲ.阅读理解 At eighteen years of age，I flew up to San Francisco to meet a pen pal who I had written to for over a year.The first thing we did when we got home was to bake (烘焙) chocolate chip cookies，and our strong_ties were formed.From laughing at the burnt cookies，to eating the chocolate chips instead of putting them in the dough (生面团)，it was fantastic.We became best friends.Twelve years later，we still reflect on that moment，and laugh with silliness and joy. Fast forward to 2003，I was in my first month of training in radiation oncology (放射肿瘤
学)，and scared.I was in a new city，alone，and afraid of having to make a new start.One patient that we were treating used to come into the department with freshly baked goods for everyone once a week with a smile on her face.She was treated with a really tough regimen (疗法) for her cancer，yet she still overcame the pain and exhaustion (精疲力竭) to bake for the department.I once asked her why，and she said it gave her purpose and meaning. This purpose was far greater for me than a simple cookie.I really didn’t know how to bake， and I told her that.She then invited me to her home for lessons.With her as a guide I learned some of the art of baking.While baking we talked about life，regrets，and dreams.We soon became very close friends. A few weeks later，her husband came to the department and gave me a large box with a handwritten note.I opened the box.Inside was a Kitchen Aid mixer，and the note saying，“Please remember me when you bake，keep at it and you’ll change the world.” He told me that her cancer had spread.She was in her final stages of life.I cried and cried.It was simply the most generous gift that I had ever received. 1．What do the underlined words “strong ties” in Paragraph 1 refer to?

L’HAYLESROSES，France：Three teenage girls admitted starting a fire in a suburban Paris housing project over the weekend that killed 17 people， including three children， police said yesterday.A fourth girl was held yesterday morning. The fire in a 19storey building south of Paris was the third fatal blaze in the Paris area in nine days.The death toll rose to 16 after a man died last Sunday in a hospital，where seven others were being treated for serious injuries，police said. Three teenagers taken in for questioning on Sunday admitted having started the fire for fun， police said.Two of the suspects were 18yearold，the other was 16，police said.Further details were not available. Witnesses claimed to have seen a group of youths who lived in the building start the fire， said Patrick Seve， mayor of the town of L’HAYLESROSES， near Orly airport， where the building was located. The fire is believed to have broken out in the lobby (门厅) of the building before raging up a stairwell at least three floors.Some residents jumped from windows as the fire spread through the building’s entrance. Authorities were investigating possible criminals in an August 26 fire that killed 14 African children and three adults in a Paris apartment building.Three days later，another fire killed seven in a building. Interior Minister Nicolas Sarkozy suggested on French television on Sunday night that copycats (盲目模仿者) were at work.“Each time there is a new story， sometimes that gives ideas to people who then turn into criminals， ” Sarkozy said， promising severe punishment for anyone found guilty of arson (纵火)． 1．What can we learn from the first two paragraphs? A．Three girls were caught setting fire to a building. B．The fourth girl wasn’t present when the fire broke out. C．All the people lost their lives before police came. D．Paris was troubled by fire during that period. 2．Why did the teenagers start the fire? A．They were interested in playing with fire. B．They wanted to make fun of their parents. C．They were not satisfied with the surroundings. D．They wanted to warm themselves. 3．From the fourth and fifth paragraphs we know that________. A．the witnesses must have put out the fire B．the lobby of the building was covered with wood C．the witnesses were familiar with the teenagers D．the residents shouldn’t have jumped from windows 4．What the Minister said in the last paragraph means that________. A．he doesn’t like to listen to new stories B．he has no time to write new stories C．teenagers often have ideas to turn into criminals D．teenagers may do the same as others have done
For most people，shopping is still a matter of wandering down the street or loading a cart in a shopping mall.Soon，that will change.Electronic commerce (trade)is growing fast and will soon bring people more choices.There will，however，be a cost：protecting the consumer from being cheated will be harder.Many governments therefore want to apply strict regulations to the electronic world.But politicians would be wiser to see cyberspace as a basis for a new era of corporate selfregulation. Consumers in rich countries have grown used to the idea that the government takes responsibility for everything from the stability of the banks to the safety of the drugs or their rights to refund when goods are faulty.But governments cannot enforce national laws on businesses whose only presence is on the screen.Even in a country where a clear right to compensation exists， the online customer in Tokyo， say， can hardly go to New York to get a refund for a clothes purchase. One answer is for government to cooperate more：to recognize each other’s rules.But that requires years of work and volumes of detailed rules.And plenty of countries have rules too fanciful for sober countries to accept.There is ， however ， another choice.Let the electronic businesses do the regulation themselves.They do，after all，have a selfinterest in doing so. In electronic commerce，a reputation for honest dealing will be a valuable competitive asset.Governments，too，may compete to be trusted.For instance，customers ordering medicines online may prefer to buy from the United States because they trust the rigorous screening of the Food and Drug Administration；or they may decide that the FDA’s rules are too strict，and buy from Switzerland instead. Customers will still need to use their judgment.But precisely because the technology is new， electronic shoppers are likely for a while to be a lot more cautious than customers of the normal sort.And the new technology will also make it easier for them to complain when a company lets them down.In this way，at least，the advent of cyberspace may argue for fewer consumer protection laws，not more. 5．According to the author，what will be the best policy for electronic commerce? A．Selfregulation by the businesses. B．Strict consumer protection laws. C．Close international cooperation. D．Government protection. 6．In case an electronic shopper bought faulty goods from a foreign country，what could he do? A．Refuse to pay for the purchase. B．Go to the seller and ask for a refund. C．Appeal to consumer protection law. D．Complain about it on the Internet. 7．In the author’s view，businesses would place a high emphasis on honest dealing because in the electronic world________. A．international cooperation would be much more frequent B．consumers could easily seek government protection C．a good reputation is a great advantage in competition D．it would be easy for consumers to complain 8．We can infer from the passage that in licensing new drugs the FDA in the United States is________. A．very quick B．very cautious C．very slow D．rather careless 9．If a customer buys something that does not meet his expectation，what is the advantage of dealing through electronic commerce over the present normal one? A．It will be easier for him to return the goods he is not satisfied with. B．It will be easier for him to attain the refund from the seller. C．It will be easier for him to get his complaints heard by other consumers. D．It will be easier for him to complain about this to the government.

Ⅲ.阅读理解 Judging from recent surveys，most experts in sleep behaviour agree that there is virtually an epidemic (流行病) of sleepiness in the nation.“I can’t think of a single study that hasn’t found Americans getting less sleep than they ought to， ” says Dr David.Even people who think they are sleeping enough would probably be better off with more rest. The beginning of our sleepdeficit crisis can be traced back to the invention of the light bulb a century ago.From diary entries and our personal accounts from the 18th and 19th centuries， sleep scientists have reached the conclusion that the average person used to sleep about 9.5 hours a night.“The best sleep habits once were forced on us，when we had nothing to do in the evening down on the farm，and it was dark.” By the 1950s and 1960s，the sleep schedule had been reduced dramatically，to between 7.5 and 8 hours，and most people had to wake to an alarm clock.“People cheat in their sleep，and they don’t even realize they’re doing it，” says Dr David.“They think they’re okay because they can get by on 6.5 hours，when they really need 7.5,8 or even more to feel ideally energetic.” Perhaps the most merciless robber of sleep ， researches say， is the complexity of the day.Whenever pressures from work，family，friends and community increase，many people consider sleep the least expensive item on their programme.“In our society，you’re considered dynamic if you say you need only 5.5 hours’ sleep.If you’ve got to get 8.5 hours，people think you lack drive and ambition.” To determine the consequences of sleepdeficit， researchers have put subjects through a set of psychological and performance tests requiring them，for instance，to add columns of numbers or recall a passage read to them only minutes earlier.“We’ve found that if you’re in sleepdeficit，performance suffers，” says Dr David.“Shortterm memory is weakened，as are abilities to make decisions and to concentrate.” 1．What is the main topic of the passage? A．Research on the causes and consequences of sleepdeficit. B．The epidemic of sleepiness in the modern times. C．The history of people’s sleeping patterns. D．The minimum of our sleeping hours. 2．Which of the following is Dr David’s opinion? A．People who think they are sleeping enough are better off than those who don’t. B．Some people can remain energetic with only 6.5 hours’sleep a night. C．If they get 18.5 hours’sleep，people will be full of drive and ambition. D．People’s metal power suffers if they are lacking in sleep. 3．People in the 18th and 19th centuries slept about 9.5 hours a night because________. A．they were forced by their parents to do so B．they knew what was best for their health C．they had no electricity D．they were not so dynamic and ambitious as modern people are 4．The major cause of sleepdeficit of modern people is________.
A．the endless TV programmes in the evenings and the Internet B．the pressures of the day C．the sufficient energy modern people usually have D．loud noises in modern cities 5．What does the word “subjects” in Paragraph 4 mean? A．Persons or things being discussed or described. B．Branches of knowledge studied in a school. C．Persons or things being treated in a certain way or being experimented on. D．Any member of a state apart from the supreme ruler.

Someday a stranger will read your email without your permission or scan the websites you’ve visited.Or perhaps someone will casually glance through your credit card purchases or cell phone bills to find out your shopping preferences or calling habits. In fact， it’s likely that some of these things have already happened to you.Who would watch you without your permission？It might be a spouse，a girlfriend，a marketing company，a boss， a cop or a criminal.Whoever it is，they will see you in a way you never intended to be seen—21st century is the equal of being caught naked.
Psychologists tell us boundaries (dividing line) are healthy，and that it’s important to reveal yourself to friends ， family and lovers in stages ， at appropriate times.But few boundaries remain.The digital bread pieces you leave everywhere make it easy for strangers to reconstruct who you are，where you are and what you like.In some cases，a simple Google search can reveal what you think.Like it or not，increasingly we live in a world where you simply cannot keep a secret.The key question is：Does that matter? When opinion polls (民意测验) ask Americans about privacy，most say they are concerned about losing it.A survey found an overwhelming (very large) pessimism about privacy，with 60 percent of respondents saying they feel their privacy is “slipping away，and that bothers me.” But people say one thing and do another.Only a tiny part of Americans change any behaviors in an effort to protect their privacy.Few people turn down a tollbooth (收费站) to avoid using the EZPass system that can track automobile movements.And few turn down supermarket loyalty cards.Privacy economist Alissanfro Acquisti has a series of tests that reveal that people will give personal information like Social Security numbers just to get their hands on a pitiful 50centoff coupon (优惠券)． But privacy does matter—at least sometimes.It’s like health； when you have it， you don’t notice it.Only when it’s gone do you wish you’d done more to protect it. 1．What would psychologists advise on the relationship between friends? A．Friends should open their hearts to each other. B．Friends should always be faithful to each other. C．There should be a distance even between friends.

Ⅲ.阅读理解 According to a recent survey on money and relationships,36% of people are keeping a bank account from their partner.While this financial unfaithfulness may appear as distrust in a relationship， in truth it may just be a form of financial protection.With almost half of all marriages ending in divorce，men and women are realizing they need to be financially savvy，regardless of whether they are in a relationship. The financial hardship on individuals after a divorce can be extremely difficult， even more so when children are involved.The lack of permanency in relationships，job and family life may be the cause of a growing trend to keep a secret bank account hidden from a partner，in other words， an“escape fund”． Margaret’s story is far from unique.She is a representative of a growing number of women in longterm relationships who are becoming protective of their own earnings.Every month on pay day，she banks hundreds of dollars into a savings account she keeps from her husband.She has been doing this throughout their sixyear marriage and has built a nest egg worth an incredible$100,000.Margaret says if her husband found about her secret savings he’d be hurt and would take this as a sign that she wasn’t sure of the marriage.“He’d think it was my escape fund so that financially I could afford to get out of the relationship if it went wrong.I know you should approach marriage as being forever and I hope ours is，but you can never be sure.” Like many of her fellow secret savers，Margaret was hurt in a former relationship and has since been very guarded about her own money. Coming clean to your partner about being a secret saver may not be all that bad.Take Colleen for example，who had been saving secretly for a few years before she confessed to her partner.“I decided to open a savings account and start building a nest egg of my own.I wanted to prove to myself that I could put money in the bank and leave it there for a rainy day.” 1. The trend to keep a secret bank account is growing because________. A．“escape fund” helps one through rainy days B．days are getting harder and harder C．women are money sensitive D．financial conflicts often occur 2．The underlined word “savvy” in Paragraph 1 probably means________. A．suspicious B．secure C．wise D．simple 3．Which inference can we make about Margaret? A．She is a unique woman. B．She was once divorced. C．She is going to retire. D．She has many children. 4. The author mentions Colleen’s example to show________. A．any couple can avoid marriage conflicts B．privacy within marriage should be respected
C．everyone can save a fortune with a happy marriage D．financial disclosure is not necessarily bad 5. Which of the following is the best title of this passage? A．Secret savers B．Love is what it’s worth C．Banking honesty D．Once bitten，twice shy Ⅳ.短文填词 To learn with your classmates is important in learning process.
