This is not because children’s eyes are too sharp to allow any blot（污点, 瑕疵）to pass without being 36 , but because adults have too many conflicting concerns to keep their eyes open to all wrongdoing. Not long before, an examination, intended to 37 some police officers to higher with a good idea that 18 primary positions, was held in Gansu province.

Everything should be done on the basis of certain principles. 48 , nowadays the repeated reports of cheating in examinations, selling ranks and 49 and embezzling (挪用) public funds paint a 50 picture of common social morals.

第三部分 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。 A WHEN there are some strangers in front of us, which of them will we trust? According to a new study in the online PLOS One, people make their decisions to trust others largely based on their faces. Your appearance can do a lot for you, especially if you are in the financial industry. The more trustworthy you look, the more likely people will buy what you’re selling. Researchers from Britain’s University of Warwick Business School, University College London, and Dartmouth College, US, did a number of experiments. The research team used computer software to make 40 faces, from the least to the most trustworthy-looking. The study said that the difference between a trustworthy face and one that isn’t as trustworthy comes from features that look slightly angry or slightly happy, even when the face is at rest. However, a slightly happy face is more likely to be trusted. Researchers gave participants some money and asked them which face they trusted to invest the money for them. Then researchers gave some good and bad information about the people with these faces, and asked the participants again whom they trusted. The results showed that even if they got different information, the participants didn’t change their choices. They were still more likely to invest their money with the more trustworthy-looking faces. Chris Olivola, one of the study’s authors, said in the University of Warwick’s press release: “It seems we are still willing to go with our own instincts about whether we think someone looks like we can trust them. The temptation to judge strangers by their faces is hard to resist.” 56. Which of the following can be a proper title for this passage? A. What kind of face do you trust? C. Why do you trust him or her? B. Who did the experiments? D. Why did they do the experiments?
57. According to the study, which of the following faces is most likely to be trusted? A. A sad face. B. A smiling face. C. A crying face. D. An angry face. 58. Which of the following about the experiment is TRUE? A. The trustworthy faces were given good information. B. Researchers took photos of the 40 people’s faces in college. C. Most participants gave their money to the trustworthy-looking faces. D. Participants liked to choose the faces with good information. 59. What did the researchers learn from their experiment? A. People can’t refuse temptations. B. People always do things with their instincts. C. People often judge strangers by their faces. D. People don’t trust strangers with sad faces. B The only survivor of one of the two Sandy Hook Elementary School first-grade classrooms where Adam Lanza shot and killed 20 children tricked the gunman by playing dead, the girl’s pastor (牧师) said. “She ran out of the school building covered from head to toe with blood and the first thing she said to her mom was, “Mommy, I’m OK but all my friends are dead” Pastor Jim Solomon told ABC News’ Lara Spencer this weekend. “Somehow, at that moment, by God’s grace, she was able to act as she was already dead.” he said. The girl, a 6-year-old whose name is not being announced for privacy (隐私) reasons, was the first student to appear from the lockdown (封锁) at Sandy Hook, Solomon said. He said the young girl described the shooter to her mom in a way that only a young child can. “Well, she saw someone who she felt was angry and someone she felt was very mad,” Solomon said. “I think it’s impossible without the help of God. She has wisdom beyond her years, for sure’’. Of the 20 children killed on Friday, eight were boys and l2 were girls. Six staff members, all female, were also killed. The gunman, whose mother was also killed by him before he went to the schoo1 classrooms, was found dead at the present spot. “The mom told me — and I thought this was very insightful (有深刻见解的) — that she was suffering from what she felt was survivor’s guilt because so many of her friends no longer have their children but she has hers,” Solomon said how the girl’s mother and father are handling the trauma (伤害)．“I don’t know whether I would have the type of faith that they have if the same thing happened to me.” 60. How did the girl manage to avoid being shot? A. She pretended to be dead. B. She hid herself under the desk. C. She rushed out of the school building in time. D. She persuaded the shooter into not shooting her. 61. Which of the following best describes the girl? A. Talented and innocent. B. Serious and insightful.
C. Active and happy. A. ended up with the shooter being killed B. was a shooting by a group of people
D. Clever and brave. .
62. The killing case which happened in Sandy Hook Elementary School
C. was due to the gunman getting angry with the pupils D. was not open to the public for the moment 63. Which of the following is TRUE about the girl’s mom? A. She was disappointed with the pastor. B. She felt very dissatisfied with other parents. C. She felt terribly sorry for those who had lost their children. D. She strongly complained the police. C Fans of US television dramas watch their favorite series for different reasons: some want to improve their English skills, others just want to kill time. Some TV series are more than pure entertainment ― they have a certain depth.
Mad Men, which returned with a sixth season recently; Monday Mornings, which just finished its first season; and Modern Family, which sweeps the awards every year,
are just a few examples. Why do these shows stand out among so many similar ones? TV critics Raymond Zhou will give you an idea of why some shows are better than others. Period drama — More than time travel Period dramas are intended to capture the ambience (气氛) of a particular era. Directors must therefore attract audiences as much by their recreation of a historical setting as by an interesting storyline.
Mad Men is an excellent example of this balance being struck. Set in New York
during the 1960s, it accurately shows US attitudes in the workplace through the alcoholism and chain-smoking common of the time, and places an absorbing plot right in its center. But rather than merely presenting a past decade, Mad Men’s subtle (微妙的) description of the struggles of white-collar workers at the time, both male and female, makes it stand out. “The series’ attention to detail is superb,” Raymond Zhou said. “For example, creator Matthew Weiner makes Don Draper ― the leading role of the series ― drive a Buick instead of a Cadillac, because Weiner thinks the man lacks the self-pride to buy a luxury car. It’s this kind of attentiveness that raises the show’s artistic value.” Critics also recommend Another period drama that works is Broadwalk Empire, set during the prohibition period of the 1920s and 1930s in Atlantic City, New Jersey. Heather Havrilesky at Salon magazine noted how the show “revels in the oddities (怪事) of its time, peeling back the layers of polite society to reveal a shadow world of criminals and politicians working together to keep the liquor flowing.” www.
Why does it appeal to viewers? Because they know that the “liquor” is a metaphor (暗喻) for today’s political scandals (丑闻). 64. How many US TV series are mentioned in this passage? A. One. B. Two. C. Three. D. Four. 65. The following statements are the reasons why many people are attracted by US television dramas EXCEPT that __________. A. US television dramas merely present a past decade B. directors recreate a historical setting and adopt interesting storylines C. the dramas can improve their English skills, and help people kill time D. some TV series are more than pure entertainment, and they have a certain depth 66. According to Raymond Zhou, Don Draper’s driving a Buick instead of a Cadillac shows _________. A. Mad Men attaches much importance to details B. Mad Men places an absorbing plot right in its center C. the director wants to raise the show’s artistic value D. Mad Men’s description of the struggling white-collar workers makes it stand out 67. What does the passage mainly talk about? A. Directors of US dramas. C. US period dramas to kill time. B. US dramas and their storylines. D. US dramas and their magic touch.
D It’s not easy being a teenager(13 至 19 岁青少年)---nor is it easy being the parent of a teenager. You can make your child feel angry, hurt or misunderstood by what you say without realizing it yourself. It is important to give your child the space he needs to grow while gently letting him know that you’ll still be there for him when he needs you. Expect a lot from your child，just not everything. Except for health and safety problems，such as drug use or careless driving，consider everything else open to discussion. If your child is unwilling to discuss something，don’t insist he tell you what’s on his mind. The more you insist，the more likely that he’ll calm up. Instead，let him attempt to solve(解决)things by himself. At the same time，remind him that you’re always there for him should he seek advice or help. Show respect for your teenager’s privacy( 隐 私 ).Never read his mail or listen to personal conversations. Teach your teenager that the family phone is for the whole family. If your child talks on the family’s telephone for too long，tell him he can talk for l5 minutes， but then he must stay off the phone for at least all equal period of time. This not only frees up the line so that other family members can make and receive calls， but teaches your teenager moderation(节制).Or if you are open to the idea，allow your teenager his own phone that he pays for with his own pocket money or a part-time job. 68. The main purpose of the text is to tell parents_________. A. how to get along with a teenager B. how to respect a teenager
C. how to understand a teenager D. how to help a teenager grow up 69. What does the phrase "calm up" in Paragraph 2 probably mean? A. become excited B. show respect C. refuse to talk D. seek help 70. The last paragraph is about how to teach a teenager______. A. to use the phone in a sensible way B. to pay for his own telephone C. to share the phone with friends D. to answer the phone quickly 71. What should parents do in raising a teenager according to the text? A. Not allow him to learn driving or take drugs. B. Give him advice only when necessary. C. Let him have his own telephone. D. Not talk about personal things with him. E Digital Trend: BOOKLESS LIBRARIES What if you could fit all of a library’s collection in the palm of your hand? That’s part of the idea behind an upcoming bookless public library in San Antonio. Called Biblio Tech, the system will lend out e-readers loaded with 10,000 titles for two-to-three –week periods. But don't bother holding on to the device longer than that because it’s programmed to go dead. Other libraries have tried similar programs: In 2002, the Santa Rosa Branch Library in Tucson, Arizona, launched a digital-only facility, and a bookless project was proposed last year in Newport Beach, California. Those digital-only projects folded—residents wanted their paperbacks—but Stanford University maintains a successful bookless engineering library with over 65,000 titles. Officials say digital libraries are a low-cost way to educate the masses and argue their rise is inevitable. Still, some insist print isn’t doomed. A recent Wall Street Journal article notes that e-book purchases skew （ 倾 斜 ） heavily toward the sort of “light entertainment” novels you can pick up at the grocery store. A survey from the Pew Research Center shows that about 90 percent of digital readers still crack open physical books.( After all, there are only four Twilight books. How hard is it to drag those around?) 72. From the first paragraph, we can tell _____. A. you can always keep all of the books in your hands, B. Biblio Tech will lend readers 10,000 books temporarily. C. the books will not be stored in your device forever. D. the bookless public library can be found in San Antonio now. 73. The following statements are true except that _____. A. the Santa Rosa Branch Library lend out e-readers with 10,000 books. B. the physical books are still popular despite those bookless projects. C. Stanford University sets a successful example of bookless engineering.
D. some officials agree that digital libraries are educative and unavoidable. 74. What is the meaning of the underlined word in paragraph 2? A. succeeded B. opened C. accepted D. failed 75. Some people insist that print will not disappear because _____. A. e-books are mainly sort of “light entertainment” novels. B. most of the digital readers prefer books about physics. C. a majority of e-reader users still choose to read paperbacks. D. it is easy to take 4 Twilight books everywhere. 第 II 卷 第四部分 写作（共两节，满分 35 分） 第一节 任务型读写（共 10 小题；每小题 1 分，满分 10 分） 阅读下面短文，根据所读内容在表格中的空白出填入适当的单词。每个空格只填一个单词。 Gratitude means thankfulness, noticing simple pleasures, and acknowledging everything that you receive. It shifts your focus from what your life lacks to the abundance that is already present. Psychological research has shown the surprising life improvements gained from the practice of gratitude. Two psychologists, Michael McCollough and Robert Emmons, conducted an experience on gratitude and its effect on well being. The results of the study indicated that daily gratitude exercises resulted in higher reported levels of enthusiasm, determination, optimism, and energy. In addition, those who practiced gratitude experienced less depression and stress, were more likely to help others, worked out problems more regularly, and made greater progress toward achieving personal goals. Therefore, it's important to practice gratitude. Here are a few reminders: A common method is to get yourself a cute little notebook and write down 3 5 things that you're grateful for at the end of each day. They can be small things, or bigger things. You can also send a handwritten letter or make a phone call to a person for whom you are thankful, expressing the gratitude. It will surely brighten their day, and in turn, yours. Besides, for some, it may be a good idea to express their gratitude in person. It doesn't need to be formal. Just a simple gesture of thanks is only needed to feel the benefits of this kind of gratitude. Finally, there are certain times you can devote to gratitude. For example, at the beginning of your meals, or at bedtime, or when your parents get home from work. Committing to a specific time establishes a practice of gratitude. Once you become accustomed to looking for things to be grateful for, you will find that you begin to appreciate simple pleasures, which can make a day and even change a life. Title Introduction Gratitude Gratitude means being 76. ______ and can help people focus on what they receive instead of what they don't have.
