本试卷满分 135 分,考试时间 120 分钟 I 语言知识及应用(共两节,满分 45 分) 第一节 完形填空(共 15 小题;每小题 2 分,满分 30 分) 阅读下面短文,掌握其大意,然后从 1~15 各题所给的 A、B、C 和 D 项中,选出最佳 选项,并在答题卡上将该项涂黑。 Culture sho

ck is a complex topic, but I'm a simple man with simple perspectives(洞察力). So my experience of foreign culture boils down to three basic stages: anger, acceptance and appreciation. When I began my life in China I was often filled with frustration and 1 over the way things were. Things were seen as clearly “ 2 ” and I rejected the view of there being other ways of doing things. Afterwards I came to 3 different ways of doing things but still saw my own ways as superior. My views were still heavily colored by 4 and I often accepted situations I felt 5 by simply coining the phrase "That's China," 6 China was a backward country that simply didn't do things correctly. Finally, however , I came to understand and appreciate the new 7 and ways of doing things, sometimes using them as effectively as the 8 . For example, fish is never 9 with the head in my country, thus my feelings went from “Ugh! I can’t eat this! The fish is 10 at me saying, `You're a 11 man.' Take this off the table,” to “I’ll let my friends enjoy, but I'll just stick with the other dishes,” and to "Would anyone mind if I eat the eyeball?" It is not the same with every westerner, and some take 12 than others to go through the three stages. It all depends on how 13 you are and how tightly you 14 to your own culture. It took a little over a year of living in China before I finally appreciate the new culture. Now, I'm more 15 in China than in my own country. 1. A. curiosity B. fear C. purpose D. anger 2. A. wrong B. right C. wise D. smooth 3. A. find B. use C. accept D. refuse 4. A. preferences B. references C. facts D. standards 5. A. necessary B. important C. nervous D. stupid 6. A. mentioning B. saying C. meaning D. referring 7. A. character B. personality C. revolution D. culture 8. A. locals B. foreigners C. researchers D. citizens 9.

Until recently daydreaming was viewed as a waste of time, or it ___16_____(consider) an unhealthy escape from real life and its duties. But now some people are taking a fresh look at daydreaming. Some think ____17____ may be a very healthy thing to do. Some researchers are finding that daydreaming may be important to mental health. Daydreaming, they tell us, is a good means of _____18___ (relax). But its benefits go 19 this. A number of psychologists have conducted experiments and have reached some 20 (surprise) conclusions. Industrialist Henry J. Kaiser believed that much of his success was due to the positive use of daydreaming. Florence Nightingale dreamed of becoming a nurse. The young Thomas Edison pictured himself as 21 inventor. For these notable achievers, it appears 22 their daydreams came true. Dr. Harry Emerson Fosdick offered this advice: “Hold a picture of yourself in your mind’s eye, ____23____ you will be drawn toward it. Picture _____24_____vividly as a failure and that alone will make victory _____25_____ (possible).” II 阅读(共两节,满分 50 分) 第一节 阅读理解(共 20 小题;每小题 2 分,满分 40 分) 阅读下列短文,从每题所给的 A、B、C 和 D 项中,选出最佳选项,并在答题卡上将该 项涂黑。 A When Boris left school, he could not find a job. He tried hard and pestered(纠缠)his relatives, but they had problems of their own. He answered advertisements until he could not afford to buy any more stamps. Boris grew annoyed, then depressed, then a little hardened. Still he went on trying and still he failed. He began to think that he had no future at all. “Why don’ t you start your own business?”one of his uncles told him.“The world is a money-locker. You’d better find a way of opening it.” “But what can I do?” “Get out and have a look round,”advised his uncle in a vague sort of way.“See what peop1e want; then give it to them, and they will pay for it.” Boris began to cycle around the town and found a suitable piece of a waste ground in the end. Then he set up his business as a cycle repairer. He worked hard, made friends with his customers and gradually managed to build up his goodwill and profit. A few months later, he found that he had more work than he could deal with by himse1f. He found a number of empty shops but they were all no good: in the wrong position, too expensive or with some other snag(障碍). But at long last, he managed to find an empty shop on a new estate where there were plenty of customers but no competition. Boris and his assistant taught themselves how to repair scooters and motor-cycles. Slowly but surely the profits increased and the business developed. At last, Boris had managed to open the money-locker and found bank notes and gold coins inside. 26. Which of the following would be the best title for the passage? A. Goodwill is the key to success. B. The world is a money-locker. C. No education, no future. D. Difficulty of starting a small business. 27. Which of the following best describes Boris’job hunting experience? A. Surprising. B. Encouraging. C. Boring. D. Disappointing. 28. Boris starts his career by . A. cycling around the town B. developing a waste ground C. repairing cycles D. buying empty shops 29. Boris finally chose an empty shop on a new estate because . A. it was not so expensive B. he had a lot of old customers there
2

C. he could make good use of his skills there D. there were good opportunities there 30. We can infer from the last paragraph that Boris . A. still couldn’t make good profits B. set off in a successful career C. found a lot of gold coins by accident D. had great difficulty running his business B I never thought I would have a life-changing experience at Wal-Mart. Although my thoughts were only on speed, the checkout line I was standing in wasn’t moving as quickly as I wanted, and I glanced toward the cashier. There stood a man in his seventies, wearing glasses and a nice smile. I thought, well, he’s an old guy! For the next few minutes I watched him. He greeted every customer before scanning the items. Sure, his words were the usual, “How’s it going?” But he did something different----he actually listened to people. Then he would respond to what they had said and engage them in brief conversation. I thought it was odd. I have grown accustomed to people asking me how I was doing simply out of robotic conversational habit. After a while, you don’t give any thought to the question and just mumble something back. I could say, “I just found out I have six months to live,” and someone would reply, “Have a great day!” But that wasn’t the end. He gave them the change, walked around the counter, and extended his right hand in an act of friendship. He looked the customers in the eyes. “I sure want to thank you for shopping here today,” he told them. “You have a great day. Bye-bye.” The looks on the faces of the customers were priceless. There were smiles and some sheepish grins. All had been touched by his simple gesture and in a place they never expected. They would gather their things and walk out, smiling. Of course, he did the same to me and I got to know his name. Marty. Who was that guy? It was as if Sam Walton had come back from the dead and invaded this old guy’s body. I had never walked away from that shop feeling like that. 31.The checkout line the writer was standing in moved slower than expected because . A.the cashier couldn’t work as fast as others B.there were some big purchases C.the cashier did more than scanning the items D.the writer was not patient enough 32.According to the writer, when common people ask you “How’s it going?” . A.they don’t really care what you may answer B.they are just practicing their conversation ability C.they are inquiring about your private information D.they don’t expect to hear any negative answers 33.What was most customers’ reaction to Marty’s behaviors? A.They thought it priceless. B.They were in some way moved. C.They thought it awful and odd. D.They felt somewhat offended. 34.What can we infer about Sam Walton? A.He might be Marty’s father or grandfather. B.He might be friendly and devoted to Wal-Mart. C.He might have died while working in the market. D.He might have come back from the dead once before.

35.What does the writer intend to express through the text? A.Our everyday life is always full of surprises. B.Most customers enjoy being treated this way. C.Being different is a good way of doing business. D.A little positive action can make a big difference. C Dear Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul, Most people don’t really know what pressures a typical teenager has to go through. Sure, our parents and grandparents were once teens, but things are so different now.It has never been tougher to a teenager. It had never been more important to be in the “right group” or to have the “right brand” of shoes. And those are the easy things to deal with.We also face problems with family, friends, relationships and school pressures. When it gets to be too much, I turn to my friends.One friend I could not live without is Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul.Your books have been so inspiring to me and have helped me to deal with and understand the problems I go through. For example, I went through a confusing time with my friends when we got to junior high. I had known these friends since kindergarten, and when we began junior high it seemed like some of them began to change.We started hanging out with different groups, and we slowly grew so far apart that it seemed as if we had never been friends.I felt confused and hurt. Sometime during this period I read the story Friends Forever in Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul Ⅱ.I felt so much better after reading it.It was like a weight had been lifted from me when I realized that many friendships went through changes and that we weren’t the only friends to experience them. People change, but that doesn’t mean we have to lose the friendships we once shared.My friends and I still spend time together when we can and care about each other a lot.That things are different doesn’t mean I have to forget about all the good times we had.I will always keep the memories in a safe place in my heart. Sincerely, Peter 36.According to the author, parents and grandparents . A.didn’t have to overcome difficulties when in their teens. B.don’t fully understand the pressures of being a teenager now C.can easily deal with things such as choosing friends and shoes. D.don’t need to give help to teenagers with pressures and problems 37.The author turns to Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul . A. after he has quarrelled with friends B.before he goes to a new environment C. when he couldn’t deal with the pressures D.when he has spare time after school 38.Why did the author feel confused and hurt when he got to junior high?

When you get into a lift, you play with it. Cigarette? Cup of coffee? No, it's the third most addictive thing in modem life, the cell phone. And experts say it is becoming more difficult for many people to curb their longing to hug it more tightly than most of their personal relationships. The costs are becoming more and more evident, and I don't mean just the monthly bill. Dr. Chris Knippers, a counselor at the Betty ford Center in Southern California, reports that the overuse of cell phones has become a social problem not much different from other harmful addictions: a barrier to one-on-one personal contact, and an escape from reality. Sounds extreme, but we’ve all witnessed the evidence: The person at a restaurant who talks on the phone through an entire meal, ignoring his kids around the table; the woman who talks on the phone in the car, ignoring her husband; the teen who texts messages all the way home from school, avoiding contact with kids all around him. Jim Williams, an industrial sociologist based in Massachusetts, notes that cell - phone addiction is part of a set of symptoms in a widening gulf of personal separation. He points to a study by Duke University researchers that found one-quarter of Americans say they have no one to discuss their most important personal business with. Despite the growing use of phones, e - mail and instant messaging, in other words, Williams says studies show that we don't have as many friends as our parents. " Just as more information has led to less wisdom, more acquaintances via the Internet and cell phones have produced fewer friends," he says. If the cell phone has truly had these effects, it's because it has become very widespread. Consider that in 1987, there were only l million cell phones in use. Today, something like 300 million Americans carry them. They far outnumber wired phones in the United States. 41. From the first two paragraphs, we can know . A. cell phones have become as addictive as cigarettes B. cell phone addiction is good for building personal relationships C. people are longing to have their own cell phones D. cell phones are the same as cigarettes 42. Cell phone addiction has caused the following effects EXCEPT . A. a barrier to personal contact B, fewer friends C. an escape from reality D.a serious illness 43. The underlined word "curb" in Paragraph 2 means “ .” A. ignore B. control C. develop D. rescue 44. The example of a woman talking on the phone in the car supports the idea that . A. women Use cell phones more often than men B. talking on the phone while driving is dangerous
5

C. cell phones do not necessarily bring people together D. cell phones make one - on - one personal contact easy 45.Which of the following is the best title for the passage? A. Cell phones Are the New Cigarettes B. Cell phones Are Harmful to the Society C. The New Report about the Cell phone D. The Disadvantages of the Cell phone 第二节 信息匹配(共 5 小题;每小题 2 分,满分 10 分) 阅读下列应用文及相关信息,并按照要求匹配信息。 某班 5 个同学 Bob, Olga, Scott.Ann 和 David 计划周末去看电影。请根据他们各自的兴趣, 阅读下面电影院海报上对 6 部电影的介绍,为他们选定可能最喜欢看的电影。 46.Bob is fascinated with movies that employ modern digital photography techniques.
