第二部分 阅读理解（共两节，满分 30 分） 第一节（共 10 小题，每小题 2 分，满分 20 分） A Trained dogs might just be the proof that they really are men's best friends not only because they can fill laundry basket, but because they can now use washing machines with just a simple bark. Thanks to the new washing machine--- the "Woof to Wash", a lot of people can benefit from the invention, which enables trained dogs to unlock the machine with a footpad (脚垫) and start it with a simple bark. A doggy footpad and a microphone system have been added, which can recognize a dog's bark, which means that dogs are able to unlock the machine by pressing the pad with their paw, pull a rope with their mouth to open the machine, and close the machine again with their nose before starting the washer by barking. Dr. John Middleton is a great inventor. The disabled owners who are blind or have autism(孤独 症)problems or learning difficulties can't use the present-day washing machines. So he thought there's a lot of demand for the new washing machines to make things easier. Then he saw a video from the charity Support Dogs, where a dog makes the bed and loads the washing machine. He was completely blown away by the video at that moment. He was inspired that he could invent a machine which the dog could operate. Mr. Middleton said,“I'm happy I saw the video. A normal washing machine can be very challenging, so the single program machine is very helpful. But a lot of people also have speech problems, so a voice- activated(声控) machine is handy. ” The Support Dogs charity was set up in 1992. Dogs are trained here using voice commands and hand signals, so that they can help their owners fetch post, turn on lights switches, open doors, assist in dressing and undressing, as well as do a complete laundry cycle. It has trained over 200 dogs to date throughout the country and relies fully on volunteer donations. We hope the new washing machine can help more people. And we sincerely welcome the sponsorship of any type of business which is kindly willing to help. If you would like to sponsor, please contact us! 21. Who would benefit a lot from new invention？ A. Dog trainers. B.Disabled dog owners. C.Famous inventors. D.The Support Dogs charity. 22. What can we infer from the underlined sentence in paragraph 3? A. Mr. Middleton wanted to make the same video. B. Mr. Middleton wanted to have a similar dog in the video. C. Mr. Middleton was deeply impressed by the video. D. Mr. Middleton once got hurt by the dog in the video. 23. What is the author's purpose in writing the text? A. To help protect animals. B. To prove dogs useful. C. To collect suggestions D. To attract sponsorship.
B Nowadays, nearly all of us seem to be too serious. My older daughter often says to me, "Daddy, you have got that serious look again." Even those of us who are committed to non-seriousness are probably too serious. People are frustrated and anxious about almost everything---being five minutes late, witnessing someone look at us wrong or say the wrong thing, paying bills, waiting in line, overcooking a meal, making an honest mistake---you name it, and we all lose perspective (理性判断) over it. The root of being anxious is our unwillingness to accept life as being different, in any way, from our expectation. Very simply, we want things to be a certain way but they're not a certain way. Life is simply as it is. Perhaps Benjamin Franklin said it best:"Our limited perspective, our hopes and fears become our measure of life, and when circumstances don't fit our ideas, they become our difficulties." We spend our lives wanting things, people and events to be just as we want them to be---and when they are not, we fight and we suffer. The first step in recovering from over seriousness is to admit that you have a problem. You have to want to change, to become more easy going. You have to see that you own anxiety is largely of your own creation--- It's made up of the way you have set up your life and the way you react to it. A good exercise is to try to approach a single day without expectation. Don't expect people to be friendly. When they are not, you won't be surprised or bothered; If they are, you'll be delighted. Don't expect your day to be problem--free. Instead, as problems come up, say to yourself，" Ah， another barrier to overcome."As you approach your day in this manner you will notice how elegant life can be. Rather than fighting against life, you will be dancing with it. Pretty soon, with practice, you will lighten up your entire life. And when you lighten up, life is a lot more fun. 24. Why are people easily frustrated and anxious these days? A. Because people have lost reasonable judgment. B. Because they have to look serious in public. C. Because their children are disappointing. D. Because life is becoming a great burden. 25. According to Benjamin franklin, what was the cause of over--seriousness? A. The fact that people can't change life itself. B. The fact that people's perspective, hopes and fears are limited. C. The fact that circumstances turn out to be difficult. D. The fact that things fail to meet people's expectations. 26. In what pattern is this article developed? A. Problems, explanation and conclusion. B. Phenomenon, causes and solutions. C. Examples, causes and arguments. D. Phenomenon, analysis and conclusion.
C A recent study，which is in the charge of Pedro Hallal of the Federal University, suggests that nearly a third of adults， 31%， are not getting enough exercise. That rates of exercise have declined is hardly a new discovery. Since the beginning of the industrial revolution, technology and economic growth have helped to create a word in which taking exercises is more and more an option rather than necessity. But only recently have enough good date been collected from enough places to carry out the sort of analysis Dr. Hallal and his colleagues have engaged in. There are common themes in different places. Unsurprisingly, people in rich countries are less active than those in poor ones, and old people are less active than young ones. Less obviously, women tend to exercise less than men---34% are inactive, compared with 28% of men. But there are exceptions. The women of Croatia, Finland Iraq and Luxembourg, for example, move more than their male countrymen. Malta wins the race for most slothful country, with 72% of adults getting too little to exercise, and Swaziland and Saudi Arabia are in close behind, with 69%. In Bangladesh, just 5% of adults fail to exercise enough. Surprisingly, six Americans in ten are active enough according to Dr. Hallal' study, compared with fewer than four in ten British. These high rates of inactivity are worrying. Human beings seem to have evolved to benefit from exercise while deliberately avoiding it whenever they can. In a state of nature it would be impossible to live a life that did not provide enough of it. But that is no longer the case. Actually lack of enough activity these days has nearly the same effect on life span as smoking. 27. We may learn from paragraph 1 that . A. The decline of exercise rates is newly discovered. B. The study suggests 31% of female adults get too little exercise. C. The industrial revolution has changed the way people live to some degree. D. The good enough data has been collected from only one country. 28. According to the study, women of Luxembourg . A. take more exercise to lose weight. B. exercise more than men in their country. C. have little time to exercise. D. hate to get regular exercise. 29. The underlined word slothful in paragraph 3 most probably means . A. lazy. B. rich. C. powerful. D. unpopular. 30. What can be the best title for the text? A. Benefits of Taking Exercise. B. New Health Discovery. C. Involvement of Human Beings D. Worldwide Lack of Enough Exercise
