The explosion of the earth produced carbon, nitrogen, vapor and other gases, 51 (make) the earth’s atmosphere. As the earth cooled 52 , water which is fundamental 53 the development of life appeared and stayed on the surface. The continued 54 (present) of water allowed the earth to dissolve harmful gases into the oceans and
this produced a chain reaction which made 55 possible for life to develop. Many millions of years later, the arrival of small plants encouraged the development of early shellfish 56 all sorts of fish. Then, with the first green plants appearing on land, land animals appeared and dinosaurs developed and existed on the earth for millions of years. Then Dinosaurs’ sudden disappearance made the rise of mammals possible on the earth. They were different from all life forms 57 ever existed in the past because they produced young from within their bodies. Finally, some small clever animals with hands and legs ___58___(appear) and spread all over the earth. Thus they, in 59 turn, have become the most important animals. However, they are putting too much carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. So for millions of years to come, 60 life will continue on the earth will depend on whether the present problem can be solved. 第三部分：阅读理解(37.5 分) 第一节： 阅读下列短文，从每题所给的四个选项（A、B、C 和 D）中，选出最佳选项，并在 答题卡上将该项涂黑。 （共 15 小题；每小题 2 分，满分 30 分） A When my first wartime Christmas came, I was in basic training in New Jersey and not sure if I would make it home for the holiday. Only on the afternoon of December 23 was the list of men who would have the three-day holiday posted. I was one of the lucky soldiers. It was Christmas Eve when I arrived home, and a little snow had fallen. Mother opened the front door. I could see beyond her, into the corner of the living room where the tree had always stood. There were lights, colors, and ornaments (饰 品) shining against the green of a pine. "Where did it come from?" I asked. "I asked the Gates boy to cut it," my mother said. "I wouldn't have had one just for myself, but when in great need... such a rush! He just brought it in this afternoon." The pine reached to the proper height, almost to the ceiling, and the Tree Top Crystal（水晶）Star was in its place. A few green branches reached out a little awkwardly（难看）at the side, I thought, and there was a bit of bare trunk showing in the middle. But the tree filled the room with warm light and the whole house with the pleasant smell of Christmas. "It's not like the one you used to find," my mother went on. "Yours were always in good shape. I suppose the Gates boy didn't know where to look for a better one. But I couldn't be fussy(挑剔的)." "Don't worry," I told her. "It's perfect." It wasn't, of course, but at the moment I realized something for the first time: All Christmas trees are perfect. 61. What did his mother's Christmas tree look like?
62. From the passage we can infer (推断) that ________ . A. all the soldiers had the three-day holiday B. the writer could not go home for Christmas C. the writer spent his first Christmas during the war D. not all the soldiers went home for Christmas during the war 63. From the passage, we can conclude that ________ . A. his mother didn't like Christmas trees B. the writer didn't like the tree cut by someone else C. the writer used to cut very beautiful Christmas trees D. his mother didn't want to have a Christmas tree during wartime 64. The best title for this passage would be ________ . A. The Perfect Christmas Tree B. How to Choose a Christmas Tree C. How Soldiers Spent Their Christmas D. A Christmas with an Ugly Christmas Tree 65. What does the writer mean by saying "All Christmas trees are perfect"? A. Nothing is as perfect as Christmas. B. Once at home, everything is so nice. C. During the war, trees are hard to find. D. All Christmas trees are the most beautiful. B Some people love eating food right after it is cooked. I prefer food just take out from the freezer. Fruit, candy, nuts, chocolate, cake with butter cream frosting(糖霜),even peas, all of them taste delicious when frozen. In fact, I often eat them that way. I was a kid when I picked up the habit. In my family, lots of things were thrown into the freezer —finally, two freezers—to prevent them from going bad. Among them were some of the candies my sisters and I had collected on Halloween. If we eat when they are still warm, we’ll find ourselves taking the cookies more than we should. It’s better if we can put them into the freezer and wait. That way we’ eat less and enjoy them more because they are hard and chewing becomes a slower, ll more patient effort. That’s the point about frozen butter-cream frosting. Put it in your mouth at room temperature, and it’s gone very quickly. But when it’s frozen, you can enjoy the taste much longer as it melts(融化) in your mouth.
The freezer treats a lot of fruits kindly. Take frozen grapes for example, I keep a bowl of grapes in my freezer. They become a little icy, and somehow their sweetness is improved. They are perfect and healthy dessert(点心).This is the same with oranges, apples, bananas?You might think bananas would get super-hard when frozen. Wrong! They become cool, creamy and sweet. If you have wisely covered some or all of the bananas with melted chocolate before putting them into the freezer, they will have a double taste. As long as you aren’t eating anything that truly has to be hot, go ahead and experiment. 66. What is the passage intended to tell us ____________. A. Fruit should be frozen before one eats it. B. Frozen food is better than hot food. C. The author prefers frozen food. D. Hot food is not healthy. 67. The author began to enjoy frozen food when he _________. A. was young B. learned cooking C. got married D. got a fever 68. Why does the author NOT advise us to take hot cookies? A. Because they need more time to prepare. B. Because the taste is not good when they are hot. C. Because they are too delicious to avoid our overeating. D. Because we may eat them quickly and enjoy them less. 69. What does the underlined word “it” in the third paragraph refer to? A. The taste B. Butter cream C. The cookie D. Frozen butter cream frosting 70. Which of the following is the advice the author gives on eating fruit? A. Make bananas hard. B. Keep grapes in a bowl. C. Mix kinds of fruits together. D. Add melted chocolate to bananas. C Satellites are an important part of our ordinary lives．For example, the information for weather forecasts is sent by satellite．Some satellites have cameras which take photographs of the Earth to show how clouds are moving．Satellites are also used to connect our international phone calls． Computer connections of the World Wide Web and Internet also use satellites. Many of our TV programs come to US through satellites．Airplane pilots also sometimes use a satellite to help them find their exact location． We use satellites to send television pictures from one part of the world to another．They are usually 35，880 kilometers above the equator．Sometimes we can see a satellite in the sky and it seems to stay in the same place．This is because it is moving around the world at 11，000 kilometers an hour—exactly the same speed that the earth rotates．A satellite must orbit the Earth with its antennae(天 线)facing the earth．Sometimes, it moves away from its orbit，So there are little rockets on it which are used to put the satellite back in the right position．This usually happens about every five or six days． Space is not empty! Every week, more and more satellites are sent into space
to orbit the Earth．A satellite usually works for about 10-12 years．Satellites which are broken are sometimes repaired by astronauts or sometimes brought back to Earth to be repaired．Often，very old or broken satellites are left in space to orbit the Earth for a very long time．This is very serious because some satellites use nuclear power and they can crash into each other． 71．Which of the following is NOT done by satellites according to the passage? A．Sending information for weather forecast． B．Taking photographs of the Earth． C．Sending TV pictures． D．Providing food for airplane pilots． 72．What’s the speed the earth rotates at? A．35,880 kilometers per hour． B．335,880 kilometers per hour． C．11,000 kilometers per hour． D．110,000 kilometers per hour 73．Why does the satellite move around the world at the same speed as the Earth rotates? A．In order to take photographs． B．In order to stay in a certain position in the orbit． C．In order to move away from its orbit． D．In order to send television pictures． rd 74．What does the underlined word “This” in the 3 paragraph refer to? A．A satellite． B．A little rocket． C．A satellite seems to stay in the same place in the sky． D．The satellite puts the rockets in the right position． 75．Which is true of satellites? A．A satellite usually works for about 10-12 years． B．Every time a satellite gets broken，it is brought back to the Earth to be repaired． C．A broken satellite is never left in space． D．They often crash into each other． 第二节: 信息匹配（共 5 小题；每小题 1.5 分，满分 7.5 分） 请阅读以下度假胜地和游客的有关信息，然后匹配游客与适合他去的度假胜地： 度假胜地 A.
