阅读理解-----A Tel epathy is the ability to communicate withou t the use of the five senses.It ’s an instinct which can be woken up in times of emergency or need. When we feel that something is happening or about to happen by instinct, we’re using resources wihtin the unconscious mind. When the resources of two persons’ unconscious minds think link together into the same frequency. We call it telepathy. We can either send or receive telepathy. If you know who is calling before you answer the ringing phone, you are probably a good receiver. If you think of a person, and they call you, you are most likely better at sending. You can easily put your abilities to the test. Think of somebody and will them to contact you. Be patient. The other person may not be a good receiver, but they should contact you much earlier than would normally be expected. Or whenever the phone rings, try "feeling" who's contacting you. Don't guess, try to feel the vibrations. However, if neither of these work for you, that doesn't mean that you are not capable of telepathy. As mentioned earlier, telepathy is most likely to turn up in case of emergency. Telepathic Dreams often contain telepathic messages. Two people may both dream of the other, and find that their dreams have a clear connection. These people are probably linking to each other ’s uncounscious mind. Telepathy&Relationships The more people spend time together, the more likely they are to be able to link up to the others mind, especially when separated.There are two reasons for this. One is that they understand the others, mind through time spent together；the other is that there is usually a strong desire to communicate. A mother will often sense that her child is in danger. This is due to the child desperately wanting his/her mother, knowing that this is the person who would always want to be there for them, and the mothers deep desire to protect her child from harm. 1. When does telepathy occur?
A. It occurs when one senses that a close friend of his/her is in danger. B. It occurs when one has very good five senses. C. It occurs when one wants to call his/her best friend. D. It occurs when one doesn’t know a stranger. 答案解析： 答案为 A。 本题为推理题。 由第一段第一、 二句话 “Telepathy is the ability to communicate without the use of the five senses.It ’s an instinct which can be woken up in times of emergency or need.” 可知，心灵感应不依靠五官感觉，而是在紧急关 头或 者有需要的时候，这种潜能才能被激发出来。故 A 选项正确。
2. Which of the following can be used as the title of the passage? A. Receiving Telepathy C. Telepathy: People’s Dream B. Telepathy: Mind-to Mind Contact D. Dream of Telepathy
答案解析：答案为 B。本题考查文章的标题。全文都是围绕心灵感应而展开，故答 案为 B。 3. Which of the following is true according to the passage? A. The more people separate, the more likely that telepathy will occur. B. It is by using the five senses that telepathy occurs. C. Telepahy happens when people live far away and have no chance to see one another. D.

阅读下列短文，从每题所给的 A、B、C 和 D 项中，选出最佳选项，并在答题 卡上将该项涂黑。 Some years ago, writing in my diary used to be a usual activity. I would return from school and spend the expected half hour recording the day’s events, feelings, and impressions in my little blue diary. I did not really need to express my emotions by way of words, but I gained a certain satisfaction from seeing my experiences forever recorded on paper. After all, isn’t accumulating memories a way of preserving the past? When I was thirteen years old, I went on a long journey on foot in a great valley, well-equipped with pens, a diary, and a camera. During the trip, I was busy recording every incident, name and place I came across. I felt proud to be spending my time productively, dutifully preserving for future generations a detailed description of my travels. On my last night there, I wandered out of my tent, diary in hand. The sky was clear and lit by the glare of the moon, and the walls of the valley looked threatening behind their screen of shadows. I automatically took out my pen… At that point, I understood that nothing I wrote could ever match or replace the few seconds I allowed myself to experience the dramatic beauty of the valley. All I
remembered of the previous few days were the dull characterizations I had set down in my diary. Now, I only write in my diary when I need to write down a special thought or feeling. I still love to record ideas and quotations that strike me in books, or observations that are particularly meaningful. I take pictures, but not very often--only of objects I find really beautiful. I’m no longer blindly satisfied with having s omething to remember when I grow old. I realize that life will simply pass me by if I stay behind the camera, busy preserving the present so as to live it in the future. I don’t want to wake up one day and have nothing but a pile of pictures and notes. Maybe I won’t have as many exact representations of people and places; maybe I’ll forget certain facts, but at least the experiences will always remain inside me. I don’t live to make memories--I just live, and the memories form themselves.

What caused a change in the author’s understanding of keeping a diary? A. A dull night on the journey. B. The beauty of the great valley. C. A striking quotation from a book. D.

B. expressing her satisfaction D. preserving her history

阅读理解 An Australian company, Smart Car Technologies, has developed a system that lets drivers know when they’re speeding. When the technology becomes commercially
available, it could help lead-footed drivers avoid tickets and also save lives. The company that developed the product hopes to convince Australian government agencies to put the technology into use in their automobile fleets. The product, called Speed Alert, links real-time location data and speed obtained with the help of GPS to a database of posted speed limits stored in a driver’s PDA or programmable mobile phone. The setup of the product does not need to be hooked u p to a car’s speedometer. In fact, it is entirely portable. It will also work with newer phones and PDAs that have built-in GPS receivers. If a driver exceeds the speed limit, the speed is shown and an alert sounds. Michael Paine, an Australian vehicle design engineer and traffic safety consultant, was hired to analyze the produ ct. He told Live Science that his colleagues in the road
safety field are “very enthusiastic” about what they’re now calling “intelligent speed alert.” Oth er research, according to Paine, shows that 40 percent of all traffic deaths involve speeding. There is also a potentially controversial future use: “Since the system is so portable, it would be easy to make it a requirement for teenage drivers to always use a speed alert device when driving,” Paine said. “The system even has the capability to record speeding violations, so parents can monitor their teenage drivers.” The product will soon go on sale in Sydney. 48. What’s the purpose of the new product? A. To inform us of the new car system. B. To introduce some improvement in cars.
C. To limit certain drivers to safe driving. D. To popularize the built-in car system. 49. The second paragraph mainly talks about A. the project of the built-in product C. the functions of GPS in cars .

It’s such a happy-looking library, painted yellow, decorated with palm-tree stickers and sheltered from the Florida sun by its own roof. About the size of a microwave oven, it’s pedestrian-friendly, too, waiting for book lovers next to a sidewalk in Palm Beach country Estates, along the northern boundary of Palm Beach Gardens. It’s a library built with love. A year ago, shortly after Janey Henriksen saw a Brian Williams report about the Little Free Library organization, a Wisconsin-based nonprofit that aims to promote literacy and build a sense of community in a neighborhood by making books freely available, she announced to her family of four, “That’s what we’re going to do for our spring break!” Son Austin, now a 10th-grader, didn’t see the point of building a library that resembles a mailbox. But Janey insisted, and husband Peter unwillingly got to work. The 51-year-old owner of a ship supply company modified a small wooden house that he’d built years earlier for daughter Abbie’s toy horses, and made a door of glass. After adding the library’s final touches (装点), the family hung a signboard on the front, instructing users to “take a book, return a book,” and making the Henriksen library, now one of several hundred like it nationwide and among more than 2,500 in the world, the only Little Free Library in Palm Beach County.
They stocked it with 20 or so books they’d already read, a mix of science fiction, reference titles, novels and kids’ favorites. “I told them, keep in mind that you might not see it again,” said Janey, a stay-at-home mom. Since then, the collection keeps replenishing ( 补充) itself, thanks to ongoing donations from borrowers. The library now gets an average of five visits a day. The project’s best payoff, says Peter, are the thank-you notes left behind. “We had no idea in the beginning that it would be so popular.”
31. In what way is the library “pedestrian-friendly”? A. It owns a yellow roof. B. It stands near a sidewalk. C. It protects book lovers from the sun. D. It uses palm-tree stickers as decorations. 32. Janey got the idea to build a library from __________. A. a visit to Brian Williams B. a spring break with her family C. a book sent by one of her neighbors D. a report on a Wisconsin-based organization 33. The library was built __________. A. by a ship supply company C. like a mailbox B. on the basis of toy horses D. with glass
34. What can we infer about the signboard? A. It was made by a user of the library. B. It marked a final touch to the library. C. It aimed at making the library last long. D. It indicated the library was a family property. 35. The passage tells us that the users __________. A. donate books to the library B. get paid to collect books for the library C. receive thank-you notes for using the library
D. visit the library over 5 times on average daily 【参考答案】31-35. BDCCA
