Alice’s mother died when Alice was five years old. Alice, who grew up to be my mother, told me that after her mother ’s death her family was too poor to even afford to give her a doll. In December 2012, I had a job at a local bank. One afternoon, we were decorating the tree in the bank lobby(大厅). One of my customers approached me with her beautiful handmade dolls. I decided to get one for my daughter, Katie, who was almost five years old. Then I had an idea. I asked my customer if she could make me a special doll for my mother—one with gray hair and spectacles(眼镜): a grandmother doll. And she gladly agreed. A friend had told me that his dad who played Santa Claus would be willing to make a visit on Christmas morning to our home to deliver my Katie her presents, so I made some special arrangements. Christmas Day arrived and at the planned time; so did Santa Claus. Katie was surprised that Santa had come to see her at her own house. As Santa turned to leave, he looked once more into his bag and found one more gift. As he asked who Alice was, my mother, surprised at her name being called, indicated that she in fact was Alice. Santa handed her the gift, with a message card that read: For Alice: I was cleaning out my sleigh(雪橇) before my trip this year and came across this package that was supposed to be delivered on December 25,1953. The present inside has aged, but I felt that you might still wish to have it. Many apologies for the lateness of the gift. Love, Santa Claus My mother ’s reaction was one of the most deeply emotional scenes I have ever seen. She couldn’t speak but only held the doll she had waited fifty-nine years to receive as tears of joy ran down her cheeks. That doll, given by “Santa”, made my mother the happiest “child” that Christmas. 51. The reason why the writer ’s mother couldn’t have a doll when young was that __________. A. Santa Clause forgot to deliver the doll to her B. her daughter couldn’t make a doll by herself C. her parents left the doll in the Santa Clause’s sleigh D. her family was badly off when she was a child

When the writer ’s mother received the doll that she had waited so long, she was __________. A. pleased and inspired C. happy and excited B. puzzled and angry D. curious and grateful
54. The best title for this passage could be __________. A. A Doll from Santa C. A considerate daughter B. An unforgettable Christmas D. A help from Santa Claus
If you need glasses to read this, you are among the majority of Chinese students. That’s because most students in China are short-sighted which means they can only see things close up and distant things will be blurry. Four-fifths of high school students wear glasses and now more and more children in primary school need glasses, too. This epidemic of poor eyesight has two very simple causes: too much time spent indoors studying and too little time spent outdoors playing. Reading and writing for hours and hours, sometimes in poorly lighted rooms, causes eyesight to weaken. But students have to do this because there is so much pressure on them to succeed in school. And because they spend so much time indoors at school and at home, they have less time to spend outdoors enjoying the sun. The sun, as a consequence, is important in developing good eyesight. Exposure to daylight releases a chemical in the eyes that prevents, or at least delays, short-sightedness. According to a study by Ian Morgan of Australian National University, Australian children and Chinese children have the same level of eyesight before they start school, but once they enter primary school, Chinese children only spend about an hour a day outside, while Australian children spend three to four hours each day in the sunshine. The result is that while about 40 percent of Chinese primary school students need glasses, only three percent of Australian children do. Wearing glasses may not seem like a big deal. For some, wearing glasses can even be an opportunity to make a fashion statement. But poor eyesight at a young age can have serious long term consequences. As you get older, your eyesight can worsen and lead to things like macular degeneration(黄斑变性), a condition of the eyes for which there is no cure and which can eventually lead to blindness.

With all that in mind, don’t you think it’s time to give your eyes a break? Try spending a little less time inside and go for a walk in the park, instead. It’s the healthy thing to do and your eyes will thank you for it. 55. What does the underlined word “blurry” mean? A. unpopular. C. unclear. A. They should study less and less. B. They should stay longer outdoors. C. They should wear sun-glasses. D. They should have a longer rest in bed. 57. It can be inferred from the passage that __________ is to blame for the poor eyesight of Chinese children. A. the ever-worsening bad weather B. the ever-increasing burden of study C. the ever-decreasing sunny days D. the ever-decreasing period of study time 58. What is the purpose of this article? A. To explain why Chinese students are poor-sighted. B. To admire Australian children’s good eyesight. C. To criticize the present education system. D. To call on people to protect Chinese children’s eyesight B. unpleasant. D. unconscious.
56. How should the students protect their eyesight according to the passage?
Comfort is comforting, but it might narrow our experience at work — and beyond. In our modern world, discomfort is considered a terrible thing. If not terrible, at least a thing of the past. Dishwashers, washing machines, computers, remote controls—yes, they add convenience, but also a level of comfort our forefathers did not enjoy. As pain of any kind discourages happiness, we tend to reason, anything that compromises our ability to feel good must be bad. And that’s also particularly true for our careers. Success makes us feel great, not terrible. Such a view, however, is a matter of personal opinion. And it may blind us to hidden opportunities. Artists throughout history have tried to experience suffering, instinctively if not consciously, to produce works that explore the darker hidden sides of the human condition. This was done, in part,
高三英语试题 第 8 页 （共 14 页）
because pain is a reality of life for everybody in some form at some time. Pain is something everybody can relate to. And pain makes a person very present. For such artists, to relieve or to deny pain would be to block the creative thinking, which drives them to explore and express. In fact, Germans have a term for this melancholia, “Weltschmerz”, which means “suffering from the world.” Writers, from Lord Byron to Kurt Vonnegut, have used the term to describe the psychological pain encountered along life’s roller-coaster journey. It was not to be avoided; it was to be understood, investigated and employed. So I propose that discomfort is good for us. Or, put another way, it tells us that something needs to be addressed. It stretches us by forcing us to view our circumstances through a wholly different lens. Because we’re drawn to safety and security, we do our best to create pleasant comfort zones for ourselves and our loved ones through the cars we drive, the homes we live in, and the places we work. But by resisting discomfort, we deny ourselves an important opportunity: the chance to shake ourselves out of our predictable perspectives and allow ourselves to make knowledgeable observations we could not possibly have made before. Discomfort gives us fresh eyes. 59. Which of the following is NOT a reason why artists throughout history have been exploring sufferings? A. Pain is a mirror that can reflect the life of everybody. B. Pain is something that no one can escape from. C. Pain can help them to avoid the creative thinking. D. Pain can strengthen the feeling of existence of a person. 60. The term “Weltschmerz” couldn’t be used to describe something like __________. A. social inequality C. racial discrimination B. mass killings D. great achievements
61. The author believes that by challenging discomfort, one may _________. A. lose an important chance to make a big fortune B. feel upset and fail to think calmly C. judge and think about the world in a new particular way D. control the situation properly when things go unsteady 62. By writing this passage, the author tries to __________. A. criticize a world full of comfort B. explain why discomfort is good for us C. persuade people to lead a life full of discomfort D. blame those who enjoy an easy life

Thousands of taxi drivers in Shenyang, Liaoning province, reportedly blocked streets with their vehicles on Sunday in protest against unlicensed vehicles using taxi-hiring apps(打车软件) and apps-based car rental companies providing passenger services, including high-end cars. Although the drivers also complained about the withdrawal of the fuel subsidy by the government, their main complaint was the loss of business because of the rising number of Internet-based car services companies. On Wednesday, news reports came that Beijing transport authorities will take measures to stop the illegal “taxi business” of private cars through the newly rising Internet apps, following the footsteps of Shenyang and Nanjing. It is not yet clear how the Shenyang city government will handle the issue and whether it will declare the services offered by market leaders such as Didi Dache, a taxi-hiring app provider backed by Tencent Holdings, and Kuaidi Dache illegal. But Shanghai transport regulators have set a rule, by banning Didi Zhuanche, or car services offered by Didi Dache in December. Such regulations will cause a setback to the car-hiring companies and investors that are waiting to cash in on the potentially booming business. Just last month, Didi Dache got $700 million in funding from global investors, including Singapore state investment company Temasek Holdings, Russian investment company DST Global and Tencent. Besides, the market is uncertain that Kuaidi Dache is about to finalize its latest round of funding after getting $800 million from global investors. Regulatory uncertainties, however, could cast a shadow on the future of the Internet-based car-hiring services, which have become popular in most of China’s big cities. To be fair, these companies’ business model is anything but bad. For example, Didi Zhuanche works side by side with established car rental companies to provide high-end car service mainly for businesspeople through the Internet and mobile phone apps. Every link in this business model chain has legal companies and services. Hence, it is hard to define it as illegal and ban it. 63. Why did taxi drivers in Shenyang block the streets with their vehicles? A. Because they wanted the government to increase their driving allowances. B. Because they wanted to be educated how to use the taxi-hiring apps. C. Because they wanted to make their main complaints known to the government. D. Because they wanted to call on passengers not to hire the private cars.

64. The author ’s attitude to banning internet car-hiring service is______. A. positive B. negative C. neutral D. unclear
65. Which of the following statements is NOT true according to the passage? A. The problem mentioned in the passage exists in all cities B. App-based car rental is helpful in some sense C. The government should regulate the app-based car rental market D. Didi Dache is a China-foreign joint company 66. From the passage we learn ___________. A. Shenyang banned apps-based car rental companies B. Shanghai is the second city banning Didi Zhuanche C. some international investment companies have faith in the future of apps-based car rental companies D. it is easy to describe the apps-based car rental companies illegal
It was the end of my junior year, the weekend before prom (毕业舞会). I was riding with some friends, and a bottle was passed around the car. Everyone was taking swigs(一大口). When the bottle got to me, I thought:“What should I do?”I took a swig. It was the biggest mistake of my life. I had to drive home later that night. I went back to my car, got in and drove off. At a stop sign I saw a policeman sitting in the parking lot across the street. His headlights were turned on, and I knew he was going to follow me. Then he flashed his lights at me. All I could think was: “Oh no, that swig!” I pulled over and waited for him to come to my door. It felt like forever. “Can I see your license and registration, please, Miss?” I gave them to him. He took them and went back to his car for a while. When he returned, he asked if I had been drinking. “No,” I said. He asked me to step out of my car. “Walk heel to toe down the white line, please.” I passed the test. Next he had me stand on my left foot, lift my right foot and hold it for 30 seconds. I’m not the most coordinated (动作协调的) person and I can’t even walk and chew gum at the same time, so, needless to say, I didn’t pass. Then he asked me to take a breathalyzer test. That was where I messed up. I told him I didn’t want to and didn’t understand why I had to. The officer asked me three more times, and I continued to refuse. He told me to turn around and place

my hands behind my back. He arrested me right then and there. The policeman drove me to a police station 20 minutes from my home. He called my parents and told them where I was. I went to court two months after that, charged with refusing to obey an officer. I got a $700 (4,340 yuan) fine and 40 hours of community service. I’ll be on probation (缓刑) for a year, and I’ll have to take the driving test again. I lost my license for a whole year. This was a huge learning experience for me. It opened my eyes to how easy it is to make a stupid decision. I want everyone reading this to know that it’s not right to drink and drive. It definitely isn’t worth losing your license over. 67. From the first paragraph, we can conclude that the author __________. A. didn’t remember she had to drive home later when riding with her friends B. wished she had refused to drink that night C. felt just one mouthful would not affect her driving D. lost her driving license on the way 68. What did the policeman ask the author to do at the stop sign? a. Show her driving license. b. Walk in a straight line. c. Stand on her head. d. Stand on one foot for 30 seconds. e. Take her temperature. A. a, b, d B. a, c, d C. b, c, e D. b, d, e
69. Which of the following is TRUE according to the article? A. The author was in jail for 40 hours and had to do community service. B. The author thought her punishment shouldn’t be so serious. C. The author was really sorry that she had made a serious mistake. D. The author believed she would have avoided punishment if she had obeyed the policeman. 70. What is the main purpose of the article? A. To warn people against driving after drinking. B. To explain how policemen test drivers. C. To show that severe punishment works. D. To blame the author’s thoughtless friends.
