第三节:阅读理解(共 20 小题;每小题 2 分,满分 40 分) 阅读下面短文,从每题所给的 A、B、C、D 四个选项中选出最佳选项。 (A ) Frank Woolworth was born in Rodman, New York., in 1852. His family were very poor farmers, and there was never enough to eat. Frank decided he did not want to be farmer. He took a short business course, and went to work as a salesman in a large city. Woolworth realized he had a natural skill for showing goods to attract people’s interest, but he soon learned something more important. One day his boss told him to sell some odds and ends (小商品 ) for as much as he could get. Frank put all these things on one table with a sign which said FIVE CENTS EACH. People fought and pushed to buy the things and the table was soon cleared. Soon afterwards, Woolworth opened his own store., selling goods at five and ten cents. But he had another lesson to learn before he became successful. That is, if you want to make money by selling low-price goods, you have to buy them in large quantities directly form the factories. Once, for example, Woolworth went to Germany and placed an order for knives. The order was so large that the factory had to keep running 24 hours a day for a whole year. In this way, the price of the knives was cut down by half. By 1919, Woolworth had over 1000 stores in the US and Canada, and opened his first store

in London. He made many millions and his name became famous throughout the world. He always run his business according to strict rules, of which the most important was: “ THE CUSTOMER IS ALWAYS RIGHT.” 41. Frank took a short business course in order to ____________. A. earn more money for his family B. learn something from a salesman C. get away from the farm D. get enough to eat. 42. Frank sold the odds and ends quickly because _____________. A. he knew how to get people to buy his goods. B. he cut down the price by half C. he had put the goods on a table in a very nice way. D. the sign he put on the table was well designed. 43. The price of the knives was cut down by half because ______________. A. the factory workers worked 24 hours a day. B. knives were ordered in large quantities directly from the factory. C. the knives were made in Germany, where labour (劳动力) was cheap. D. the knives were produced in one factory. 44. _____________ make Woolworth a world-famous man. A. His business skills and his wealth. B. The low price of the goods he sold. C. His trip to Germany and his huge order of knives. D. His natural skill for showing things. 45. The belief that : “ The customer is always right” suggests that _______________. A. whenever there is a quarrel between the customer and shop assistant, the customers are always right.

B. If you want to succeed, the rule is the only way. C. stores must always follow the customer’s orders if they want to make more money. D. stores should do their best to meet the customer’s needs if they want to be successful. (B) About ten men in every hundred suffer from color blindness in some way. Women are luckier; only about one in two hundred is affected in this matter. Perhaps, after all, it is safer to be driven by a woman! There are different forms of color blindness. In some cases a man may not be able to see deep red. He may think that red, orange and yellow are all shadows of green. Sometimes a person cannot tell the difference between blue and green. In rare cases an unlucky man may see everything in shades of green - a strange world indeed. Color blindness in human beings is a strange thing to explain. In a single eye there are millions of very small things called “cones”. These help us to see in a bright light and to tell difference between colors. There are also millions of “rods”, but these are used for seeing when it is near dark. They show us shape but no color. Some insects have favorite colors. Mosquitoes prefer blue to yellow. A red light will not attract insects, but a blue lamp will. In a similar way human beings also have favorite colors. Yet we are lucky. With the aid of the cones in our eyes we can see many beautiful colors by day, and with the aid of the rods we can see shapes at night. One day we may even learn more about the invisible colors around us. 46. The passage is mainly about _____________. A. color and its surprising effects. B. women being luckier than men C. danger caused by color blindness D. color blindness 47. According to the passage, with the help of the “cones”, we can_______________.

A. tell different shapes C. kill mosquitoes

B. see in a weak light D. tell orange from yellow

48. Why do some people say it is safer to be driven by women? A. Women are more careful. B. There are fewer color-blind women C. Women are fonder of driving than men. D. Women are weaker but quicker in thinking. 49. Which of the statements about the color- blind is true? A. Not all of them have the same problem in recognizing color. B. None of them can see deep red. C. None of them can tell the difference between blue and green. D. All of them see everything in shades of green. 50. We can attract and kill mosquitoes by using a _____________. A. red light C. blue light (C) America is a mobile society. Friendships between Americans can be close and real, yet disappear soon if situations change. Neither side feels hurt by this. Both may exchange Christmas greetings for a year or two, perhaps a few letters for a while — then no more. If the same two people meet again by chance, even years later, they pick up the friendship. This can be quite difficult for us Chinese to understand, because friendships between us flower more slowly but then may become lifelong feelings, extending (延伸) sometimes deeply into both families. Americans are ready to receive us foreigners at their homes, share their holidays, and their home life. They will enjoy welcoming us and be pleased if we accept their hospitality (好客) easily. Another difficult point for us Chinese to understand Americans is that although they include

B. yellow light D. green light

us warmly in their personal everyday lives, they don’t show their politeness to us if it requires a great deal of time. This is usually the opposite of the practice in our country where we may be generous with our time. Sometimes, we, as hosts, will appear at airports even in the middle of the night to meet a friend. We may take days off to act as guides to our foreign friends. The Americans, however, express their welcome usually at homes, but truly can not manage the time to do a great deal with a visitor outside their daily routine. They will probably expect us to get ourselves from the airport to our own hotel by bus. And they expect that we will phone them from there. Once we arrive at their homes, the welcome will be full, warm and real. We will find ourselves treated hospitably. For the Americans, it is often considered more friendly to invite a friend to their homes than to go to restaurants, except for purely business matters. So accept their hospitality at home! 51. The writer of this passage must be ______. A. an American B. a Chinese C. a professor D. a student

52. Which of the following statements is TRUE according to the passage? A. Friendships between Americans usually extend deeply into their families. B. Friendships between Americans usually last for all their lives. C. Americans always show their warmth even if they are very busy. D. Americans will continue their friendships again even after a long break. 53. From the last two paragraphs we can learn that when we arrive in America to visit an American friend, we will probably be ______. A. warmly welcomed at the airport B. offered a ride to his home C. treated hospitably at his home D. treated to dinner in a restaurant 54. The underlined words “generous with our time” in Paragraph 3 probably mean ______. A. strict with time B. serious with time

C. careful with time

D. willing to spend time

55. A suitable title for this passage would probably be “______”. A. Friendships between Chinese B. Friendships between Americans C. Americans’ hospitality D. Americans’ and Chinese’s views of friendships (D) A few months ago I was at a bus stop in town in the evening. The bus came on time and I took the window seat. The bus route was by the seashore and I was enjoying the breeze (微风) while watching the sea waves. After a few minutes the bus made its next stop. A young boy and a girl got on. They were standing on my left when the bus pulled off. I looked at them curiously and realized that all the window seats were occupied (占据). They could sit but not together. Suddenly a different wave passed through my body and my inner mind gave me the advice to get up. I got up and offered them my seat. The young lady smiled kindly and said thanks. I occupied another seat and we parted our ways. I don’t remember whether I got off the bus be-fore them or not. Months passed by. Suddenly one day while I was standing at the same bus stop waiting some time for the bus to arrive I heard a voice. “Excuse me, Uncle.” I looked in the direction of the voice. It was a beautiful young lady. Puzzled, I said, “I do not recognize you.” She said, “Do you remember you gave us your window seat?” Puzzled, I said, “Maybe, but what is so great in that?” She said, “If you had not given your seat that day, perhaps I would have not sat with my friend. By sitting together it helped us bridge a misunderstanding that had been between us forever. Do you know we are getting married next month?” “Good! God bless both of you,” I replied.

The young lady again said thank you and went on her journey. I realized the importance of giving that day. 56. Why were the young boy and the girl standing on the bus? A. Because they wanted to enjoy the sea view. B. Because they couldn’t sit together. C. Because there were no empty seats. D. Because they preferred to stand. 57. The underlined sentence in the first paragraph probably means that the author had a feeling that ______. A. he wanted to do something special B. the sea wave made him upset C. a wave from the sea flooded him D. he wanted to make a sea wave in his heart 58. The author’s act of kindness helped the young boy and the girl ______. A. begin to talk to each other again after a quarrel B. sit together and become friends very soon C. clear up a misunderstanding between them D. know each other and get married 59. From the story, we can conclude that ______. A. small things can create great happenings in life B. it is giving rather than receiving that matters C. offering one’s seat to others may win respect D. we sometimes forget what happened in the past 60. The best title for the passage would be “______”. A. The empty seat on the bus B. The pleasant travel C. The love on the bus D. The bus ride
