四．完形填空（共 15 分，每题 1.5 分） Adults are often surprised by how well they remember something they learned as children but have never practised in the meantime. A man who has not had an opportunity to go swimming for years can 41 swim as well as ever when he gets back in the water. He can got on a bicycle after several decades and still 42 away. A mother who has not 43 the words for years can teach her daughter the poem that begins “ Twinkle, twinkle, little star” or recite the story of Cinderella or Snow White. One explanation is the law of over learning, which can be stated as following: 44 we have learned something, additional learning increases the 45 of time we will remember it. In childhood, we usually continue to practise such skills as swimming, bicycle riding long after we have learned them. We continue to listen to and 46 ourselves of poems such as “Twinkle, twinkle, little star” and childhood tales such as Cinderella or Snow White. We not only learn but 47 .
The law of over learning explains why cramming (突击学习) for an examination, 48 it may result in a passing grade, is not a 49 way to learn a school course. By cramming, a student may learn the subject well enough to get by on the examination, but he is likely soon to forget almost everything he learned.

五．阅读理解（共 40 分，每题 2 分） A Hawking has left much for Chinese to think about. British physicist Stephen hawking, possibly the world’s most famous scientist after Albert Einstein, gave lectures in Zhejiang and Beijing in August. An illness left him unable to move any part of his body except for three fingers. But his continuing efforts in the field of science have made many young people take him as their idol(偶像). His books, such as A Brief History of Time(<<时间简史>>), become bestsellers in Chinese bookstores. “Hawking helps people expand their horizons and become interested in science,” said Pan Yunhe, president of Zhejiang University.
Indeed, experts don’t think it likely that Hawking’s lectures and profound(深奥的) ideas will be easily understood by the average person. But he has certainly sowed the seeds of science among many young people. And the “Hawking fever” caused by his visit has made people ask: How can China produce more top scientists like Hawking? “Nurturing(培养) top scientists will take as much work to change society as to educate the scientists themselves,” said Zhang Fan. Zhang has studied in the UK since 1999 and will be a sophomore(大学二年级学生) at Trinity College in October, 2002. In Britain, Zhang said, teachers inspire students to have a general understanding of the subjects they are interested in. And they encourage students to develop new ideas, which helps them to nurture their creativity. In China, the Ministry of Education(教育部) has encouraged schools to provide quality education to tap(开发) students potential (潜力) “ I hope teachers will pay more attention to helping us use our imaginations(想象力) and solve problems on our own,” said Lu Jie, a Junior Three students in Sanfan Middle School in Beijing. 51 . From this essay ______ have made young people take Hawking as their idol. A B C D 52 . A C 53 . A B the fact that Hawking is a famous physicist Hawking’s lecture in Zhejiang and Beijing Hawking’s continuing efforts in science the fact that Hawking can just move three fingers In paragraph 4, what’s the meaning of “horizons” from the context? knowledge the range of one’s knowledge B sight D mind
From this essay, which of the following statements is TRUE? Hawking brought a fever to China. Hawking’s lectures and profound ideas will not be easily understood by the average people.
C In order to nurture top scientists, teachers should solve all the problems for the students. D In China most schools provide quality education to tap students potential. 54. The last three paragraphs mainly tell us _____. A we should reform our education in order to nurture more top scientists B we have to do a lot of work to educate the scientists themselves
C in order to nurture more top scientists, schools should provide quality education D to have more excellent scientists, teachers should help students use their imaginations and solve problems on their own.
55. In writer’s opinion, Hawking’s visit will NOT ______. A B C D expand many people’s horizons help people become interested in science do good to the education of China help average people understand his profound ideas well B The office has always been a place to get ahead. Unfortunately, It is also a place where a lot of natural resources start to fall behind. Take a look around next time you’re at work. See how many lights are left on when people leave. See how much paper is being wasted. How much electricity is being used to run computers that are left on. Look at how much water is being wasted in the rest-rooms. And how much solid waste is being thrown out in the rubbish cans.We bet it’s a lot. Now, here are some simple ways you can produce less waste at work. When you are at the copier, only make the copies you need. Use both sides of the paper when writing something less important. Turn off you lights when you leave. Use a lower watt bulb in your lamp. Drink your coffee or tea out of your mugs instead of single-use cups. Set up a recycling box for cans and one for bottles. And when you’re in the bathroom brushing your teeth or washing your face, don’t let the tap run. Remember, if we use fewer resources today, we’ll save more tomorrow. 56. The main purpose of the passage is to tell people ______.
A B C the disadvantages of working in an office the waste produced in an office to save resources when working in an office
D how to save water in a restroom 57. How many kinds of waste are mentioned in the passage? A Two B Three C Four D Five
58. From the passage we can infer that in the office ______. A B C using computers is a waste of resource many people don’t turn off the computers after using them computers are run by electricity
D a computer is not a must for working 59. It is suggested that we use both sides of the paper at the copier because ______. A C we are short of paper we should save paper B the printing is not important D we have to pay for the paper
60. The underlined word mugs is most likely to be ______. A a machine that makes coffee B C a container that can be used again and again a paper product for tea
D something that can only be found in an office. C Read a whole book in English? Me? Yes, you. Believe it or not, that may be easier than you think. Not all classics are too difficult or complicated. So you’re not limited to the simplified versions. And the easier books are not all for children. Books in their original versions may send you to the dictionary. And you might not understand everything you read. But reading one from cover to cover will give you a real sense of accomplishment（成就）.
The key is to find the right books. Let’s take a look at these. The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe (C.S. Lewis) Stepping into an old wardrobe, four English schoolchildren find themselves in the magical world of Narnia. On this delightful land, they find friends among the many talking creatures. The children soon discover, however, that Narnia is ruled by the White Witch. Edmund, one of the children, falls under her power. Who can free Narnia? Only Aslan, the great and noble lion. He alone knows the Deeper Magic. But the children themselves must help fight the battle against the White Witch and those who serve her. The Old Man and the Sea (Ernest Hemingway) Santiago, an old Cuban fisherman, hasn’t caught any fish in more than 80 days. Sailing far out from land, the old man hooks an enormous fish. That begins an agonizing three day battle. First he struggles against the great fish. Then he must fight off the sharks that circle the little boat and threaten to eat his fish. Exhausted and bleeding, the old man arrives back at shore. But his fish, his beautiful fish . . . Hemingway won the Nobel Prize for this superb story of strength and courage, of victory and regret. A Wrinkle in Time (Madeleine Lingle) Meg’s father, a U.S. government scientist, has been missing for many months. He had been experimenting with time travel when he mysteriously disappeared. Now Meg, her little brother Charles Wallace and her friend Calvin will try to rescue him. But first they must outwit the forces of evil they encounter（遇到） on their journey through time and space. Can they find Meg’s father before it’s too late? This novel is more than just a science fiction adventure. It’s an exploration of the nature of our universe. The Pearl (John Steinbeck) One day Kino, a poor Mexican pearl diver, finds a magnificent pearl. With it he dreams of buying a better life, new clothes and schooling for his son. Instead, it brings only evil. His wife pleads with him to get rid of it. "No," says Kino. "I will have my chance. I am a man." But when he kills a man who is trying to steal the pearl, Kino and his wife must run for their lives. This tale of dreams, justice and the power of greed is told simply and beautifully. The Long Winter (Laura Ingalls Wilder)
It’s winter, 1880—1881, on America’s northern prairies. Mr. and Mrs. Ingalls and their four girls stay near the kitchen stove to keep warm. Heavy snowstorms cut them off even from neighbors. With the trains stopped, no supplies can reach the town. Food and fuel are running out. Day after day the girls must grind wheat for bread and twist hay to burn. At times they nearly lose the battle to keep their spirits up. This story provides a fascinating glimpse into the life of early American settlers. 61. In the passage, the author intends to _______.

For a 400-year-old art form, operas had a bad fame: overweight actresses singing the words which are hard to understand in one of those romance languages you were supposed to learn in high school. And with tickets costing as much as $ 145 a performance, opera goers also have a certain appearance in people’s mind: rich, well-dressed and old. But now opera companies around the country are loosening their ties and kicking off their shoes in an attempt to bring the opera to the audience. It needs to keep it alive, the young and not-so-rich. Opera producers have found that to attract this crowd, they need to make the opera closer to common people. That means no formal suits, old-styled theatre or band-breaking ticket prices. And because young people don’t or won’t come to the opera, companies are bringing the opera to them, giving performances in such unusual places as parks, libraries and public schools. The Houston Grand Opera’s choice is the public library, where it performs “mobile operas”, shortened versions (剧本) of child-friendly operas. This summer’s production is Hansel & Gretel. By performing smaller versions of large productions, producers are able to make people interested while keeping costs at a reasonable level. The San Francisco Opera, which will be celebrating its 75th anniversary this year, is staging Cinderella free of charge, keeping costs down by employing students from its Young Artists’ Training Program. 66. Which is the main idea of this passage? A. Opera is famous for its long history. B. Opera is only performed for rich people. C. Young people are not interested in opera. D. Opera companies are trying to keep opera alive. 67. The underlined phrase “loosening their ties and kicking off their shoes” (paragraph 2) means _______. A. breaking up the old rules suits C. making the audience at ease B. changing the formal D. advertising themselves
68. Opera companies prefer to perform short versions because ________. A. it is hard to find long versions perform B. short versions are easy to
C. they can perform in public libraries come to opera D. they can make more people
69. The San Francisco Opera Company employs student actors in order to _______. A. celebrate its 75th anniversary C. attract young people popular 70. From the passage we can infer that ______. A. the tickets for operas are very expensive B. operas are performed in a difficult language C. operas are not so popular an art form today D. students enjoy performing operas very much B. reduce the cost D. make Cinderella

My Opinion on Cheating in Examinations It is known to us all that some students cheat in examinations at school. As students, we often take examinations at school, but sometimes we have too many examinations which are too difficult for us. On the other hand, some of us are lazy and don’t work hard at their lessons. So when taking examinations, they sometimes cheat in order to get better results to please their parents and teachers. In my opinion, it is wrong to cheat in examinations because it breaks the rules of schools, we students should be honest and try to get good results by studying hard instead of cheating in examinations. What’s more, we should improve our study methods and get well prepared for examinations.
