One midnight, a little girl woke up to pass water. She by herself got up and down her bed, walked to the bedroom door and opened it. She looked outside and walked back, for it was so dark in the hall that she feared. Her mother said, ―Don’t be afraid, honey. Take courage!‖ ―What’s courage?‖ she asked, running to her mother’s bed. ―Courage is the brave breath,‖ her mother answered. ―Mum, do you have courage?‖ ―Certainly.‖ The girl held out her little hands, saying, ―Mum, blow some of your breath of courage to me.‖ After her mother blew out two mouthfuls of breath into her little cold hands, the little girl clenched her fists(握拳) nervously, afraid that the ―breath of courage‖ would run away. Then with her fists clenched, she walked out of the bedroom towards the bathroom with nothing to fear. Her mother said to herself, ―It will be nice if someone can blow some kind of ―breath‖ to me. Then I can hold it in my hands too when I feel terrified or lost.‖ In fact, mostly, what we are terrified of is nothing but the fear in our mind. Who we should defeat is nobody but ourselves. 56. The girl walked back because __________.

The writer mainly wants to tell us that ________.

Which is the best title of the passage? A. The Fearless Mother B. One Lonely Girl C. The Breath of Courage D. One midnight B Any diet on which you eat fewer calories than you need to get through the day — like an 800-calorie-per-day diet can be dangerous. Diets that don't allow any fat also can be bad for you. Everyone needs a certain amount of fat in their diet — up to 30% of total calories — so no one should eat a completely fat-free diet. Don't have diets that restrict （限制） certain food groups, either. A diet that requires you to say no to bread or pasta (面团)or allows you to eat only fruit is unhealthy. You won't get the vitamins and minerals you need. And although you may lose weight, you'll probably gain it back as soon as you start eating normally again. Some people start dieting because they think all the problems in their lives are because of weight. Others have an area of their lives that they can't control, like an alcoholic(嗜酒的) parent, so they focus on something they can control — their exercise and food intake. People who diet may get lots of praise from friends and family when they start losing pounds, which makes them feel good. But eventually a person reaches a weight level — and doesn't lose as much weight as before because the body is trying to keep a healthy weight, so they aren't any happier. Some people may find it hard to control their eating, so they stick with an extreme diet for a little while, but then eat tons of food. Feeling guilty about the binge, they use laxatives（泻药）. Eating too little to maintain a healthy weight or eating only to throw up the calories are both eating disorders, which are harmful to a person's health. 60. The reasons why some people start and keep dieting DON’T include__________. A. They think their trouble comes from their weight. B. They have an alcoholic parent. C. Other people’s praise when they lose some weight. D. There is something they can’t control except food intake. 61. Which is not the result of restricting certain food groups? A. lose weight for a short period B. unhealthy C. short of vitamins D. hungry 62. The underlined phrase ―an extreme diet‖ refers to _________. A. eating too little B. a special diet C. eating too much D. a fat-free diet 63. Which of the following statements is true?

The common cold is the world’s most widespread illness, which is probably why there are more myths(神话，想象) about it than any of the other illnesses. The most widespread mistake of all is that colds are caused by cold．They are not．They are caused by viruses passing on from person to person．You catch a cold by coming into contact, directly or indirectly, with someone who already has one．If cold causes colds, it would be reasonable to expect the Eskimos to suffer from them forever．But they do not．And in isolated Arctic regions explorers have reported being free from colds until coming into contact again with infected(感染的) people from the outside world by way of packages and mail dropped from airplanes． At the Common Cold Research Unit in England, volunteers took part in Experiments in which they gave themselves to the discomforts of being cold and wet for long stretches of time．After taking hot baths, they put on bathing suits, allowed themselves to be doused(浸入) with cold water, and then stood about dripping （滴干） wet in drafty （通风的） rooms． Some wore wet socks all day while others exercised in the rain until close to exhaustion．Not one of the volunteers came down with a cold unless a cold virus was actually dropped in his nose． If cold and wet have nothing to do with catching colds, why are they more frequent in the winter? In spite of the most painstaking research, no one has yet found the answer ． One explanation offered by scientists is that people tend to stay together indoors more in cold weather than at other time, and this makes it easier for cold viruses to be passed on． No one has yet found a cure for the cold．There are drugs and pain suppressors such as aspirin, but all they do is to relieve the symptoms． 64. The fact that the Eskimos don’t suffer colds shows that . A. colds are really full of myths B. viruses are the factors causing colds C. the idea that cold leads to colds doesn’t stand up D. colds are more severe than other illnesses 65. The experiments mentioned in Paragraph 3 made it clear that . A. being doused with cold water did harm to one’s body B. it was viruses not wet and cold that made people have colds C. taking hot baths made the volunteers easy to be tired D. people who would like to exercise in the rain got colds more easily 66. According to the passage, colds are commonly seen in winter because . A. staying together indoors makes it easier for viruses to pass on B. viruses can go into people’s warm bodies more easily in winter C. there is great difference between indoor and outdoor temperature D. people are usually weak because of the extreme cold in winter 67. What does the passage mainly discuss? A. The myths about colds. B. The continued spread of colds. C. The reason and the way people catch colds. D. The experiments on colds.

useful for so many different things. When you consider its speed and convenience, you will understand that there isn’t any reason to use any other means to complete everyday jobs. Just consider the convenience factor when you need quick simple information. Looking for a movie can take just minutes by jumping online as opposed to going and getting a newspaper and then hoping it has the theater that interests you. It is also a great way to find a restaurant for the evening. From the online yellow pages to the various websites of different eateries(餐馆), there are many different choices of spots to gather information. Find old friends from school by joining in one of the endless groups that have been created to put people together. Information is just so easy to get when you are using the Web. Find out how to build a pond yourself in your own backyard or garden by a quick search. Then shop for materials and fish as well. Shopping on the Internet also saves time and we can select a better product without having to travel a long distance. Using the Internet, shoppers can go through the product’s prices from various stores while sitting in one place. Studying for school of any kind is easier when you can use the Web to find information. Now you can search an online dictionary that anyone can use at no cost. Doing research is easy, since there are lots of sites devoted to helping students of any type get their work completed. Businesses also have a huge existence on the Web. A company might only have a simple website to give directions and its location. There are many of us who now depend on the Web. If a business does not have some type of website, then it will not be found by those who search the Web for local businesses. 68. The following are mentioned in the passage showing that the Web brings convenience EXCEPT for _______. A. looking for a movie B. finding a restaurant C. doing the shopping D. getting a newspaper 69. We can learn from the passage that _______. A. old friends can be found on the Web B. sites devoted to helping students are difficult to find C. an online dictionary is expensive for students to use D. products on the Web are cheaper than those in a store 70. What can be inferred from the last paragraph? A. Businesses which have no huge existence on the Web won’t be found. B. Every company has a website to give directions and its location. C. A company’s website has become a necessity. D. There are too many people who prefer to do business on the Web now. 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。 务必把选项填写在答题卷上。 Life is so rich in offering us a variety of situations. _71_ When you are in a position to comfort a friend in crisis(危机), you have been given a wonderful opportunity to express your loving care.
