Dragging himself out of the dam,he struggled up the hilly slope and rang the doorbell.Mrs.Nelson took him inside and rang his mother. “You?ll really need that fishing break to help you recover,” laughed his mother with relief.“Thank goodness you didn?t panic!” But Andy did not hear her.He was dreaming once again of the fish he would catch tomorrow. 4.Why did Andy fail to notice the swarm of bees earlier?

scientific basis of the "5-second rule" — the belief about it being fine to eat food that has only had contact with the floor for five seconds or less.Although people have long followed the ?5-second rule?,until now it was unclear whether it actually helped. The study,undertaken by final year Biology students and led by Anthony Hilton,Professor of Microbiology at Aston University,monitored the transfer of the common bacteria from a variety of indoor floor types as carpet, cement floor to toast,pasta,biscuit and a sticky sweet when contact was made from 3 to 30 seconds.The results showed that: time is a significant factor in the transfer of bacteria from a floor surface to a piece of food,and the type of flooring the food has been dropped on has an effect,with bacteria least likely to transfer from carpeted surfaces and most likely to transfer from cement flooring surfaces to moist foods making contact for more than 5 seconds. Professor Hilton said,"Consuming food dropped on the floor still carries an infection risk as it very much depends on which bacteria are present on the floor at the time." The Aston team also carried out a survey of the number of people who employ the ?five-second rule?.The survey showed that: 87% of the people surveyed said they would eat food dropped on the floor,or already have done so.55% of those that would,or have eaten food dropped on the floor are women.81% of the women who would eat food from the floor would follow the ?5-second rule?.Professor Hilton added,"Our study showed that a surprisingly large majority of people are happy to consume dropped food,with women the most likely to do so.But they are also more likely to follow the ?5-second rule,which our research has shown to be much than an old wives? tale." 12.According to the passage,which of the following is true? A.A toast dropped on the carpet is easier to be polluted than that dropped on the cement floor. B.A sticky chocolate dropped on the carpet is easier to be polluted than that dropped on the cement floor. C.The food dropped on the carpet shares the same potential of being polluted with the food dropped on the cement floor. D.The food dropped on the cement floor is not as safe as food dropped on the carpet within 30 seconds. 13.What is the passage probably developed? A.Contrast B.Example C.Time D.Space
14.How did Professor Hilton feel after analyzing how many people chose to eat dropped food? A.Puzzled B.Upset C.Satisfied D.Astonished
15.What is the main idea of this passage? A.The food which is dropped on the floor can be eaten safely. B.A research on the safety of food dropped on the floor is undertaken. C.The bacteria have no negative effect on the safety of food. D.People surveyed in the research are willing to accept the idea. 第二节（共５小题，每小题２分，满分１０分） 根据短文内容， 从短文后的选项中选出能填入空白处的最佳选项。 选项中有两项为多余选项。 Ways to save time We all wish we had just a bit more time.Just think what you could do with an extra hour or two each day: you could finally stick to an exercise routine,or spring-clean the house,or write your novel,or learn the guitar and so on. 16 But I can help you find more hours in your day for the things that really matter.
★Get Out of Bed Earlier. If you normally get up at 7; 30 a.m.try getting up at 7:00 a.m.That half-hour might not sound like much,but it could be time that you use to exercise,to read that book you've been meaning to finish. 17
★Do the Important Tasks First. Once you get to work,get the important ones done first（not the easy ones,or even the urgent ones） . 18 If you work like this,you?ll usually save time.The urgent tasks will still get done,and you won't miss the important ones. ★Reduce Interruptions. If colleagues have a habit of hanging around your desk to chat,or if the phone is constantly ringing,you might find that it takes you half the day to finish a simple task like writing a letter. 19 ★ 20
A few minutes chatting,browsing the web,and so on,can easily turn into hours of wasted time over the course of a day.If you concentration is slipping,take a proper break: go and get a glass of
water,or stretch your legs a bit.And if you?re facing a difficult task,try breaking it into small steps or stages so that it?s easier to deal with. A.Stay Focused on Your Work. B.Take Breaks When Necessary. C.Would you want me to make your day longer? D.I can?t magically make all your days 25 hours long. E.Or simply to get your day off to a calm and organized start. F.Constant interruptions don?t just eat up time,they also break your concentration. G.You can afford to spend at least an hour working on big,important tasks rather than on all those little urgent ones. 第二部分 英语知识运用（由第一、二组成，满分 45 分） 第一节 完形填空（共 20 小题；每小题 1.5 分，满分 30 分） 阅读下面短文，从短文后各题所给的 A、B、C 和 D 四个选项中，选出可以填入空白处的最 佳选项。 The cultures of the East and the West really distinguish from each other a lot.This is because the culture systems are two separate systems 21 .
