III 阅读理解（共一节，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、D 项中选出最佳答案，并在答题卡上将该项涂黑。 A Zheng Taijun, a 30-year-old artist from Guangdong Province, transforms simple falling leaves into works of art by cutting pictures of people and scenes into them. ―Falling leaves are often a sign of sadness or death, but I want to recreate them into something hopeful—the beginning of something new,‖ said Zheng. The idea of carving leaves came to Zheng when he was at a low point in life. In the autumn of 1999, he had travelled to a tourist spot to try and sell some of his paintings, when he was robbed of everything he had. With no money to return home, the heart-broken artist sheltered from the rain under a
tree.An old man approached him and asked what was wrong. On hearing Zheng?s reply that he felt life had no more meaning, the old man started to laugh. He picked up a leaf and said, ―It all depends on how you look at it.Take this yellow leaf for example. Some may see death, others may see beauty.‖ Zheng chose beauty and he spent the next few years perfecting his carving skills and travelling the country looking for ideas. In his technique — which Zheng successfully patented (申请专利) last year —leaves are kept slightly wet in water. He makes a simple outline on the leaf. Then comes the most difficult part——using tinny knives, Zheng gently cuts away enough of the ―flesh‖ of the leaf to leave behind an image. Each leaf may take up to seven days to make, and Zheng says he often breaks a few for every successfully completed work. But he also says that?s the real charm of it—to challenge himself. 41. In which section of a newspaper will you most probably read this article? A. Art B. News C. Technology D. Opinion 42. What do falling leaves represent according to Zheng? A. The end of life B. A news starting point C. Success after struggle D. Unhappy experiences 43. The underlined word ―it‖ in paragraph 4 refers to ______. A. The leaf B. life C. meaning D. death 44. In what order did the following events happen to Zheng Taijun? a. He went to a tourist spot to sell his paintings. b. He met and talked with an old man. c. he patented his cutting technique. d. he was robbed of all his money. e. he travelled the country looking for ideas. A. d, b, e, a, c B. a, c, d, b, e C. d, b, e, c, a D. a, d, b, e, c B Of all the contrasts in cultures between the West and China, surely what we eat has to be one of the biggest. It’s not so much that we eat different things, but more that we eat different parts of the same things. Take chicken for example. Chicken feet are much prized over in China, and once these are finished, the hungry Chinese will move on to the wings and then legs, and maybe then the breast meat. In the West, the order would be exactly the opposite,
except that we would never get as far as the feet, as people find the thought of it quite strange. The same can be said for pork. The Chinese consider the feet to be delicious, but in the West, things are very different. I live on a small Scottish island with my Chinese wife, and our local butcher used to throw out his pig feet, until one day my wife mentioned she would like them. She now gets a bag full every week, and smiles all the way home about the fact that she’s got what she considers the best part for free. Whenever we go to the supermarket my wife is amazed that the meat without bones and fat is the most expensive. I explain that this is because western people don’t see the purpose of paying for something they can’t eat. But for her, these parts are the most delicious and she loves them. And happily for my wife, such bony and fat meat is also the cheapest. That’s why dinner at our houses is a perfect match. There’s never any argument over who gets what, and nothing goes to waste. There are also western foods the Chinese consider terrible. Take blue cheese for example, which is very popular in many western countries, but which some people think smells like rotten eggs. When my wife first saw this in the UK, she felt sick at its smell, but finally I persuade her to try it and now she loves it. It’s these culture differences that make the world so full of fun. 45. What’s the purpose of this passage? A. To share the author’s marriage experiences with the readers. B. To prove that east-west marriage is the best. C. To argue that eating habits can never be changed. D. To discuss the cultural differences in eating habits. 46. According to the passage, in what order do westerners prefer to eat chicken? A. Breast—legs—wings B. Legs—wings—feet C. Breast—wings—legs D. Wings—legs—breast 47. According to the passage, the author’s wife ______. A. sometimes argues with the author about what to cook B. believes meat with fat should be the cheapest C. gets pig’s feet for a very low price D. is used to eating blue cheese now 48. The author thinks the events mentioned are very ______. A. interesting B. strange C. annoying D. boring
C Monk High School has been some amazing improvements in the past year. Students now miss fewer days and exam results have gone through the roof. But theses successes are not the outcome of better teaching or stricter rules. Instead the school simply started its first lesson at 10 am instead of 9 am. The change was designed to match the school day with students? body clocks. Teenagers are well-known night-owls, preferring to stay up late and sleep till lunch time. By matching the school timetable with students? biological rhythms, the school avoids teaching teenagers when their brains are still half asleep. In the modern world, our lives are largely controlled by time. Even without watches and calendars, our bodies still follow an inner clock called body rhythms. Over each 24-hour period we experience physical and mental changes that prepare our brain and bodies for the tasks we face at different times of the day. The main controller of these rhythms is a tiny part of the brain located just above the eyes. This master clock gathers information about light and sends it to the rest of the body using electrical signals. These signals control body functions like heart beat, body temperature and more. Not surprisingly our physical and mental condition varies according to the time of the day. For example, body temperature is lowest at around 4.30 am and rises to its highest level at about 7 pm. Energy levels also rise throughout the day. These changes can affect how we perform various tasks, including athletic performance. As your body temperature and energy levels rise during the afternoon, physical performance tends to improve. Meanwhile, the ability to carry out complicated mental tasks, like decision-making, gets worse the longer you have been awake. 49. What caused the improvements at Monk High School? A. Stricter rules. B. Better teaching C. later lesson time D. More teachers 50. The underlined word ―night-owls‖ in paragraph 2 refers to people who______. A. wake up at night B. go to bed late C. can’t sleep easily D. sleep at lunch time 51. According to the passage where is main controller of a person’s biological clock? A. The heart B. The eyes C. The body D. The brain
52. According to the last paragraph, when would be the best time for a student to do an English examination? A. Morning B. Noon C. Afternoon D. Evening D It is often said that if you don’t have dreams in life you can never achieve success. To a certain extent, this is true. If you don’t know where you want to go, you will never get there because there’s nowhere to get to. But the other side to these bright dreams is they can be blinding. If you’re blinded, you will end up in the same place: Nowhere. What you need is a balance between what is really achievable and the dreams that can give you direction but may also hold you as prisoners. Here are a few suggestions that may help you move along the path of success: Find out who you really are: Most dreams come to us at an early age. The trouble with these early dreams is that WE CHANGE. Without thinking about what you want regularly, you may be blindly following something you don’t even want anymore. If you’re feeling lost, or even if you’re not, stop and ask yourself: What makes me happy? Don’t make general goals: This is perhaps the easiest way one gets lost. Simply saying to yourself, ―I want to be president‖ or ―I want to be the next Steve Jobs‖ is too broad and has no plan attached. Have a clear set of goals mapped out in a weekly or monthly plan. And make sure all of those things you ―could do today‖ are in fact done. Don’t wait for something to happen to you: Simply having a strong dream will not make it come true. You create the world you live in so it’s up to you to take action. If you’re serious about something, know it inside and out. What are the problems? What are the opportunities? And learn from others. Hearing others? success stories will inspire you to action. You may feel that this is easier said than done, but once you understand yourselves and the road you want to take, you are already halfway to success. 53. What is the author’s opinion about dreams? A. They are the only way to achieve success. B. They usually cause people troubles.
C. They are always changing D. They shouldn’t be followed blindly 54. Which of the following does the author suggest? A. Don’t make detailed plans B. Wait for something to happen to you C. Find out who you are D. Never change your goals 55. What is the author’s intention in writing this article? A. To describe the experiences of the author B. To tell people to give up their dreams C. To help readers to achieve success D. To warm readers about their dreams 56. The underlined expression ―inside and out‖ in Paragraph 5 is closest in meaning to ______. A. practically B. completely C. nearly D. finally E Xin Hua Cinema – Now showing Dolphin Tale — This movie is based on the amazing true story of a brave dolphin and a group of strangers who work together to save her life.
