第三部分 阅读理解（共 20 小题；每小题 2 分，满分 40 分）
Peter Woolf and Will Riley, both 55, greet each other with a large hug whenever they meet. They're now really good friends, but they weren't ten years ago. Before the men ever had a proper conversation, they had a serious physical fight. Peter hit Will over the head with a heavy pot, and then they both rolled down the stairs of Will's North London home before Peter hit him again with a pot. Will was knocked out and bleeding from the back of the head, but he refused to give in to Peter－a desperate heroin addict (海洛因上瘾者) with a 30-year habit who had broken into Will's home to steal whatever valuables he could then sell to buy drugs. It was 5 p.m. on March 2002, when Peter forced the front door of Will's five-storey Georgian home in Islington. And when Will walked into his bedroom to get something, he was shocked to find an unpleasant-smelling man in front of him. "I asked him what he was doing in my house, and he said he was a neighbor who had heard a noise and was worried," says Will. "I was sure he was a thief, so as he went past me, I grabbed him and pushed him to the floor. "I managed to get him downstairs and out into the street after pulling his jacket down to trap his arms. I was shouting, ?Thief! Thief!? Someone had heard me shouting and called the police, who arrived within minutes." The police put Peter into the back of their police car. He soon began a three-year sentence in London's Pentonville Prison on a charge of breaking and entering. Despite having spent 18 years of his life in prison, Peter somehow remained hopeful that he could clean himself up, stop taking drugs and go on to do something useful on his eventual release. A few weeks later, Will received a telephone call from police officer Kim Smith, who explained that a
trial in restorative (恢复性的) justice was about to take place and he wondered if Will would like to meet Peter, who was waiting for sentencing. Will met Peter again. He says, "I thought I might be able to help him change his ways." Will saved Peter's life. "We're great friends, we get on extremely well, and when we meet, we talk about everything," says Will. "Peter's a fine man." 51. It can be learned from the text that Peter and Will . A. met for the first time in prison B. regret stealing things from neighbors C. refuse to talk about anything when they meet D. became good friends after a fight 52. When Peter broke into the house, . A. he hit Will on the head B. he was pushed to the floor at once C. he wasn't found immediately D. he met a neighbor of Will's 53. The underlined phrase "his ways" in the last but one paragraph refers to . A. fighting and stealing B. taking drugs and stealing C. fighting and staying in prison D. taking drugs and staying in prison 54. According to the text, Will is . A. brave and kind B. clever and easy-going C. friendly and polite D. helpful and caring
Someone once says that superstition (迷信) is "when you believe in things that you don't understand." And, maybe it's right. "Step on a crack (裂缝), break your mother's back. Break a mirror, get seven years of bad luck." We've all heard of the rhymes, but how many of us really know what they mean, or, more importantly, where they came from? In the year 2012, one in four Americans admitted to being "very" or “somewhat” superstitious. Superstitions come into our mind when we want more control or certainty about something. We want an explanation for why things go wrong -- or right -- and, for whatever reason, we're quick to attribute (把……归于) success or failure to something seemingly harmless, like a rabbit's foot or a penny. Psychologists believe that when we carry items like these, they actually have a calming effect, fueling positive thinking. Conversely, if we lose that lucky object, we think negative thoughts. You probably won't find a more superstitious group of people than sailors and fishermen. Their present superstitious beliefs date back several centuries and include these famous examples: it's bad luck to sail on a Friday. If you whistle or sing into the wind on a boat, a storm is sure to follow. Sailors who wear earrings or have tattoos (文身) won't drown. It's bad luck to have women on board because they make the sea angry or jealous . Rats' leaving a ship is a sign of trouble. Boats carrying bananas don't catch fish. Crab (蟹) boat fishermen are a particularly superstitious group. Perhaps it's because crab fishing is one of the most dangerous jobs in the world. Even with modem understanding of science and weather patterns, we still regard the sea as a mysterious place. Beliefs and superstitions are passed down from generation to generation, from fisherman to fisherman, and it's a brave sailor who turns his or her back on tradition. But would you be willing to see what happens when you reject a centuries-old superstition? 55. According to the text, we are more superstitious when . A. we have some negative thoughts B. the origin of a superstition is found out
C. we know why something goes wrong D. something doesn't happen as we expected 56. What does the underlined word "Conversely" in the second paragraph mean? A. On the other hand. B. On the contrary. C. At one time. D. In a word. 57. Which of the following is allowed on a fishing boat? A. To wear earrings. B. To drive a rat away. C. To take a female on board. D. To carry bananas. 58. What can we infer from the text? A. The more dangerous a job is, the less superstitious people become. B. With modem weather forecast, fishermen are less superstitious. C. Fishing is an industry that mainly depends on superstitions. D. Most fishermen would rather believe in superstitions than reject them.

Elephants scored a big win in Dohar, Qatar, on March 22, 2010. Representatives from 175 countries met in the Middle Eastem country. They voted to continue a ban on the sale of ivory (象牙). Two African nations, Tanzania and Zambia, had asked to open up the ivory trade. People feared that weakening a 21-year-old ban on the sale of ivory would encourage illegal hunting and hurt elephant populations. African elephants once numbered in the millions. Today, there are fewer than 500,000. "People born in 100 years should be able to see an elephant," said Noah Wekesa, Kenya's minister of forest and wildlife. His country voted to keep the ban. In the 1980s, as many as 1 million elephants were killed throughout Africa. Hunters killed the animals for their ivory tusks, which were used to make jewelry and other things. "The slaughter of elephants in Africa was terrible," says Paul Todd of the International Fund for Animal Welfare. The group works to protect animals. The ivory wars continued until 1989, when the United Nations voted to ban all trade in ivory. With trade controlled, demand for ivory fell. Governments punished hunters. Elephant populations began slowly to increase. Tanzania and Zambia asked to allow ivory sales from government stockpiles (库存). Ivory is so expensive that it's known as "white gold". Tanzania holds almost 200,000 pounds of ivory, which is worth as much as $20 million. Zambia has 48,000 pounds of the white gold. The countries said they need the money the ivory would bring. They say it was taken from hunters or came from animals that died naturally. Experts believe that trading ivory encourages illegal hunting. They felt happy about the decision which forbids the sales. "This is a rare victory for elephants," said Jason Bell. He works to protect animals. 63. The text is mainly about . A. continuing a ban on the ivory sale to protect elephants B. protecting endangered animals around the world C. the effects of the ivory wars of the 1980s D. the life of elephants in the wild 64. Ivory is known as "white gold" because A. it is as rare as white gold B. it is being sold illegally C. it looks like white gold D. it is extremely valuable 65. The underlined word "slaughter" in paragraph 4 most probably means . A. protection B. killing C. increase D. life
66. Tanzania and Zambia asked for permission to . A. Sell elephants B. sell jewelry made from ivory C. sell their stocked ivory D. continue hunting for ivory
Researchers in the psychology department at the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA) have discovered a major difference in the way men and women respond to stress. This difference may explain why men are more likely to suffer from stress-related disorders. Until now, psychological research has maintained that both men and women have the same "fight-or-flight" reaction to stress. In other words, individuals either react with aggressive behavior, such as verbal or physical conflict ("fight"), or they react by withdrawing from the stressful situation ("flight"). However, the UCLA research team found that men and women have quite different biological and behavioral responses to stress. While men often react to stress in the fight-or-flight response, women often have another kind of reaction which could be called "tend and befriend." That is, they often react to stressful conditions by protecting and nurturing their young ("tend"), and by looking for social contact and support from others — especially other females ('befriend"). Scientists have long known that in the fight-or- flight reaction to stress, an important role is played by certain hormones( 激 素 ) released by the body. The UCLA research team suggests that the female tend-or-befriend response is also based on a hormone. This hormone, called oxytocin, has been studied in the context of childbirth, but now it is being studied for its role in the response of both men and women to stress. The principal investigator, Dr. Shelley E. Taylor, explained that "animals and people with high levels of oxytocin are calmer, more relaxed, more social, and less anxious." While men also secrete (分泌) oxytocin, its effects are reduced by male hormones. In terms of everyday behavior, the UCLA study found that women are far more likely than men to seek social contact when they are feeling stressed. They may phone relatives or friends, or ask directions if they are lost. The study also showed how fathers and mothers responded differently when they came home to their family after a stressful day at work. The typical father wanted to be left alone to enjoy some peace and quiet. For a typical mother, coping with a bad day at work meant focusing her attention on her children and their needs. The differences in responding to stress may explain the fact that women have lower frequency of stress-related disorders such as high blood pressure or aggressive behavior. The tend-and-befriend regulatory(调节的) system may protect women against stress, and this may explain why women on average live longer than men. 67. The UCLA study shows that in response to stress, men are more likely than women to ______. A. turn to friends for help B. solve a conflict calmly C. find an escape from reality D. seek comfort from children 68. Which of the following is true about oxytocin according to the passage? A. Men have the same level of oxytocin as women do. B. Oxytocin used to be studied in both men and women. C. Both animals and people have high levels of oxytocin. D. Oxytocin has more of an effect on women than on men. 69. What can be learned from the passage? A. Male hormones help build up the body's resistance to stress. B. In a family a mother cares more about children than a father does.
C. Biological differences lead to different behavioral responses to stress. D. The UCLA study was designed to confirm previous research findings. 70. Which of the following might be the best title of the passage? A. How men and women get over stress B. How men and women suffer from stress C. How researchers overcome stress problems D. How researchers handle stress-related disorders
