第三部分：阅读理解（共两节，满分 50 分） 第一节 短文理解（共 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 四个选项中，选出最佳选项，并把答题卡上对应题目 的答案标号涂黑。 A A mouse happened to look through a hole in the wall to see the farmer and his wife open a package. ―What
food might this contain?‖ The mouse wondered. But he was sad to discover it was a mousetrap. Back to the farmyard, the mouse announced this warning, ―There is a mousetrap in the house! There is a mouse trap in the house!‖ The hen clucked (咯咯地叫), raised her head and said, ―Mr. Mouse, I can tell this is a great concern to you, but it is of no consequence to me. I cannot be bothered by it.‖ Then the mouse turned to the pig. The pig sympathized, but said, ―I am very sorry, Mr. Mouse, but there is nothing I can do about it but pray. Be assured you are in my prayers.‖ Then the mouse turned to the cow and repeated the same words. The cow said, ―Moo, Mr. Mouse. I’m sorry for you, but it’s no skin off my nose.‖ So, the mouse returned to the house, head down and sadly faced the farmer’s mousetrap alone. That very night a sound was heard throughout the house – the sound of a mousetrap catching its prey (猎物). The farmer’s wife rushed to see what was caught. In the darkness, she did not see it. It was a poisonous snake whose tail was caught in the trap. The snake bit the farmer’s wife. The farmer rushed her to the hospital. When she returned home, she still had a fever. Everyone knows fresh chicken soup is good to treat a fever. So the farmer took his knife to the farmyard. The hen was killed. But his wife’s sickness continued. Friends and neighbors came to sit with her around the clock. To feed them, the farmer butchered the pig. The farmer’s wife did not get well but died. So many people came for her funeral that the farmer had the cow killed to provide enough meat for all of them for the lunch. The mouse looked upon it all from his hole in the wall with great sadness. 46. What surprised the mouse when looking through the hole? A. The farmer and his wife. C. A package with food in. A. It had a talk with his friends. C. It argued with its neighbors loudly. B. A dangerous mousetrap. D. A poisonous snake. B. It warned its neighbors of the danger. D. It tried hard to cheer its neighbors.
47. What did the mouse do when it returned to the farmyard?
48. Which of the following is NOT mentioned in the story? A. The hen was sure that it needn’t be bothered by it. B. The pig only expressed its sympathy for the mouse. C. The farmer’s wife was bitten by the poisonous snake. D. The farmer’s neighbors came to his home for meat. 49. What does the underlined sentence ―but it’s no skin off my nose‖ in Paragraph 5 mean? A. It is none of my business. C. It doesn’t affect my smell. B. It is out of the question. D. It is not interesting at all.
50. Which of the following can best express the moral (寓意) of the story? A. Mind works faster in time of danger. C. We should pull together in time of trouble. B "The Book That Can't Wait" is a great new idea that seeks to strengthen bonds between first-time writers and their readers by getting their books read quickly. Argentinean independent publishers Eterna Cadencia are publishing a collection of short stories by new South American authors using special ink that slowly disappears once it comes in contact with sun and air, completely vanishing within 2 months after the book has been opened. This makes for an interesting approach to motivating book buyers to read books more quickly, giving first-time authors the attention they need to survive. "The Book That Can't Wait" tackles an important problem for new authors: How to get readers. The creative independent publishers teamed up with DRAFTFCB in the city of Buenos Aires to develop this project. "Books are very patient objects. We buy them, and then they wait for us to read them. Days, months, even years. That's OK for books, but not for new authors. If people don't read their first book, they'll never make it to a second," says the project coordinator Tito Santana. That's why Eterna Cadencia, which also runs its own bookstore, has decided to create something different to launch its new authors into the market. It presented its first "The Book That Can't Wait" for the critics and the press last month. The invention is a success. Hundreds of people came to the bookstore to pick up a copy. To help spread the word, they gave away the first edition to customers for free. The very same day it was released, the publishing house claimed that it received thousands of requests for more copies of the book. So it will print a new edition later this month to satisfy the demand. And the best result? This time they have the guarantee that their new authors will be read. The company plans to use the book as a platform for other titles, because they believe there is a lot of literature out there that doesn't deserve to wait on the shelf. And these books won't wait at all. 51. The main purpose of publishing "The Book That Can't Wait" is to___________. A. sell more books B. make it fun to read C. invent a new kind of book D. get new authors' books read quickly 52. The DRAFTFCB mentioned in Paragraph 3 is most probably__________. A. an organization involved in the project B. a new South American author C. an independent bookstore B. Never put your nose into others’ business. D. Out of sight, out of mind.
D. an area of Buenos Aires
53. By saying "Books are very patient objects" in Paragraph 4, Tito Santana actually means ______. A. books never know when you read them B. books must be read very carefully C. books can usually be read at any time D. books can sometimes have emotions 54. What can we learn from the passage? A. Light and air can make the books disappear within two months. B. The approach has only been applied to works of some new authors. C. Books printed using the new technology have been best-sellers. D. The company will publish all its books in the future using the new ink. 55. What is the author's attitude towards this new kind of book? A. Supportive. B. Doubtful. C. Uninterested. C Facial expressions carry meaning that is determined by situations and relationships. For example, in American culture the smile is in general an expression of pleasure. Yet it also has other uses. A woman’s smile at a police officer does not carry the same meaning as the smile she gives to a young child. A smile may show love or politeness. It can also hide true feelings. It often causes confusion across cultures. For example, many people in Russia consider smiling at strangers in public to be unusual and even improper. Yet many Americans smile freely at strangers in public places (although this is less common in big cities). Some Russians believe that Americans smile in the wrong places; some Americans believe that Russians don’t smile enough. In Southeast Asian culture, a smile is frequently used to cover painful feelings. Vietnamese people may tell a sad story but end the story with a smile. Our faces show emotions (情感), but we should not try to ―read‖ people from another culture as we would ―read‖ someone from our own culture. The fact that members of one culture do not express their emotions as openly as members of another do does not mean that they do not experience emotions. Rather, there are cultural differences in the amount of facial expressions permitted. For example, in public and in formal situations many Japanese do not show their emotions as freely as Americans do. When with friends, Japanese and Americans seem to show their emotions similarly. It is difficult to make a general statement about Americans and facial expressiveness because of personal and cultural differences in the United States. People from certain cultural backgrounds in the United States seem to be more facially expressive than others. The key is to try not to judge people whose ways of showing emotion are different. If we judge according to our own cultural habits, we may make the mistake of ―reading‖ D. Opposed.
the other person incorrectly. 56. What does the smile usually mean in the U.S.? A. Joy. B. Politeness. C. Love. D. Thankfulness. 57. The author mentions the smile of the Vietnamese to prove that smile can ___ . A. show friendliness to strangers C. be used to hide true feelings _______. A. Japanese do not experience rich emotions B. both Japanese and Americans enjoy different cultures C. Americans have rich emotional experiences D. Americans often smile in the wrong places 59. What should we do before attempting to ―read‖ people? A. Learn about their relations with others. B. Figure out what they will do next. C. Find out about their past experience. D. Understand their cultural backgrounds. 60. What would be the best title for the text? A. Facial Expressiveness C. Cultural Differences B. Smiles and Relationship D. Habits and Emotions D Australian cities can keep their native wildlife — but only if they can kick their habit of urban (城市的) sprawl (无计划的扩展). That’s the finding of a new study by leading Australian environmental researchers Jessica Sushinsky, Professor Hugh Possingham and Dr Richard Fuller of The University of Queensland. ―While urban development usually reduces the number of birds in a city, building more compact (紧凑的) cities and avoiding urban sprawl can slow these reductions greatly,‖ says lead author Jessica Sushinsky. ―Compact housing development leaves birds’ homes untouched, leading to fewer losses of birds.‖ The researchers surveyed native and wild birds in Brisbane’s urban areas, including living and industrial areas, public parks and gardens, major roadways and airports. They then used statistical (统计的) modeling to find out what will happen to the birds as the city grows. The first setting was compact growth — where more homes are built on land that previously had only one house. The second setting was sprawling growth — a familiar pattern where homes are built here and there beyond the city’s current boundaries. The team’s forecasts showed that a much greater diversity of species was lost over 20 years in the sprawling setting compared to the more compact setting. ―Urban sprawl resulted in the disappearance of many B. be used in the wrong places D. show personal habits
58. In formal situations many Japanese do not show their emotions as freely as Americans do because
urban-sensitive birds — birds that only live in areas where there is native vegetation (植被), such as parklands and woodlands,‖ Ms Sushinsky says. ―On the other hand, we found the city with the compact development attracted more birds because it kept more of its parks and green areas.‖ Now the Queensland Government has adopted the more compact urban growth strategy (策略), which, Dr Richard Fuller says, is good news for Australia’s native birds. These birds are environmental specialists — they need a particular environment to do well. ―While compact development means smaller backyards, it can also make our entire cities more biodiverse,‖ according to Dr Fuller. ―The study shows that we should hold on to our green spaces instead of clearing them for sprawling development.‖ 61. The study deals with the relationship between ______. A. city development and birds C. humans and wildlife A. It makes the cities more beautiful. C. It is money-saving. A. is really brave C. has an uncertain future B. the environment and birds D. climate and wildlife B. It gives people larger backyards. D. It is bird-friendly. B. is worth praising D. should be performed nationwide
62. Why is compact urban growth better than the sprawling strategy?
63. Dr Richard Fuller thinks the Queensland Government’s action ______.
64. What can we learn about the study from the passage? A. It is based on the statistics in the past only. B. It is strongly against urban development. C. It criticizes the city environment in Brisbane. D. It suggests leaving more green spaces for birds. 65. Where does the passage probably come from? A. A news report. B. A travel guide. C. A health magazine. D. A history book.
