He called it “Keeping up with the Joneses” because “Jones” is a very common name in the United States. “Keeping up with the Joneses” came to mean keeping up with rich lifestyle of the people around you. Momand’s series appeared in different newspapers across the country for over 28 years. People never seem to get tired of keeping up with the Joneses. And there are “Jonses” in every city of the world. But one must get tired of trying to keep up with the Joneses because no matter what one does, Mr. Jones always seems to be ahead. 60.

A more difficult question is whether life ever existed on Mars when it had a warmer and thicker atmosphere. In August 1996, scientists carried out experiments on a rock fragment(碎片) of a meteorites(陨星) from Mars. The studies showed that bacteria(细 菌) existed on Mars 3.6 billion years age, but some other scientists didn’t agree. So it’s possible that life forms once lived on Mars billions of years ago. But we don’t know for sure. 64. Why can’t life live on Mars? A. Because the atmosphere there is very thin. B. Because there is no water there. C. Because there are different seasons there. D.

of the world and all the questions on your maths test might seem easy. But occasionally you feel horrible, and you lose things and you cannot focus on your schoolwork. For more than 20 years, scientists have suggested that high self-esteem(自尊) is the key to success. Kids who feel good about themselves , said scientists, do better in school and have fewer emotional（情感的）and behavioral problems than kids who have a low opinion of themselves.
He believes that violent and wicked( 邪 恶 的 ) people often have the highest self-esteem of all. He also said, “There is no evidence that kids with high self-esteem do better in school.” All types of people have problems. People with high self-esteem can have big egos(自我) that can make them less likeable to their peers(同龄人), said Kathleen Vohs. She is a professor of marketing science and consumer psychology at the University of British Columbia in Canada. People with high self-esteem tend to think more of themselves, Vohs says. People with low self-esteem are more likely to rely on their friends when they need help. 68. By saying “Everyone has good days and bad days.” at the beginning of the passage, the author means “________”. A. everybody has the chance to succeed in doing something B. everybody would feel good and sometimes feel terrible C. lick plays a key point in people’s lives D. people all over the world are actually equal to have the chance to win 69.

V：任务型阅读（共 10 小题；每小题 1 分，满分 10 分） 请认真阅读下列短文，并根据所读内容在文后表格中的空格里填入最恰当的词。 注意：每空只填 1 个单词。 Don’t complain in the NBA The NBA has a new rule this season. It’s called “zero tolerance”. NBA referees （裁判）are not letting players complain too long or too loudly about a referee’ s call（裁判的判决）. A player who does can be given a technical foul(犯规). Two technical fouls, and the player is out of the game. The players don’t like the new rule and want the NBA to change it. They think it’s only natural to get angry during a close, hard-fought game if a call goes against you. But I like the “zero tolerance” rule and wish other sports would follow the NBA’s example. Wouldn’t it be more enjoyable if football, soccer and tennis players stopped arguing the calls and just played the game? The biggest reason I like the new rule is that it sets a good example to younger players. When kids see stars such as Rasheed Wallace of the Detroit Pistons shouting at the referees and arguing every call, they think it’ part of the game. But shouting s at referees and arguing calls should never be part of any kid’s games. Kids should be taught to forget about the referees’ calls and pay attention to improving their skills and play their best. All players need to learn that you control only one thing in a game, and that’ s your own performance. You can’t control what the other players or trainers do. And you certainly can’t control the calls the referees make. Finally, everyone from NBA all-stars to 8-year-olds should remember that being a basketball referee is a hard job. The referee has to make dozens of sudden calls. No hesitation. No second chances. Not even the best referee gets every call right. Maybe if the players, trainers and fans who shout at the referees had to wear a whistle and call a few games, there wouldn’t be as many complaints about the “zero tolerance” rule. Title: The NBA’s zero-tolerance
