Sandra Day O?Connor (1930-present) When Sandra Day O ’ Connor finished third in her class at Stanford Law School, in 1952, she could not find work at a la w firm because she was a woman.

B Grandparents Answer a Call As a third generation native of Brownsville, Texas, Mildred Garza never pleased move away. E
ven when her daughter and son asked her to move to San Antonio to help their children, she politel y refused. Only after a year of friendly discussion did Ms. Gaf finally say yes. That was four years ago. Today all three generations regard the move to a success, giving them a closer relationship th an they would have had in separate cities. No statistics show the number of grandparents like Garza who are moving closer to the children and grandchildren. Yet there is evidence suggesting that the trend is growing. Even President Oba ma?s mother-in-law, Marian Robinson, has agreed to leave Chicago and into the White House to h elp care for her granddaughters. According to a study grandparents com. 83 percent of the people s aid Mrs. Robinson ?s decision will influence the grandparents in the American family. Two-thirds believe more families will follow the example of Obama?s family. “In the 1960s we were all a littl e wild and couldn?t get away from home far enough fast enough to prove we could do it on our ow n,” says Christine Crosby, publisher of Grate magazine for grandparents. We now realize how imp ortant family is and how important to be near them, especially when you?re raining children.” Moving is not for everyone. Almost every grandparent wants to be with his or her grandchildren and is willing to make sacrifices, but sometimes it is wiser to say no and visit frequently instead. Having your grandchildren far away is hard, especially knowing your adult child is struggling, but giving up the life you know may be harder. 25. Why was Garza?s move a success? A.

They wanted to live away from their parents. D. They bad little respect for their grandparent. 28. What does the author suggest the grandparents do in the last paragraph? A. Make decisions in the best interests? of their own B. Ask their children to pay more visits to them C. Sacrifice for their struggling children D. Get to know themselves better C I am Peter Hodes, a volunteer stem courier.

I had one trip last year where I was caught by a hurricane in America. I picked up the stem ce lls in Providence, Rhode Island, and was meant to fly to Washington then back to London. But wh en I arrived at the check-in desk at Providence, the lady on the desk said: “Well, I?m really sorry, I ?ve got some bad news for you-there are no fights from Washington.” So I took my box and put it on the desk and I said: “In this box are some stem cells that are urgently needed for a patient-pleas
e, please, you?ve got to get me back to the United Kingdom. ” She just dropped everything. She a rranged for a flight on a small plane to be held for me. re-routed(改道) me through Newark and got me back to the UK even earlier than originally scheduled.

Silences may be thoughtful, or they may be empty when a person has nothing to say. A silence in a conversation may also show stubbornne ss, or worry. Silence may be viewed by some cultural groups as extremely uncomfortable; therefor e attempts may be made to fill every gap(间隙) with conversation. Persons in other cultural groups value silence and view it as necessary for understanding a person's needs. Many Native Americans value silence and feel it is a basic part of communicating among peo ple, just as some traditional Chinese and Thai persons do. Therefore, when a person from one of th ese cultures is speaking and suddenly stops, what maybe implied(暗示) is that the person wants the listener to consider what has been said before continuing. In these cultures, silence is a call for reflection. Other cultures may use silence in other ways, particularly when dealing with conflicts among pe ople or in relationships of people with different amounts of power. For example, Russian, French, and Spanish persons may use silence to show agreement between parties about the topic under dis cussion. However, Mexicans may use silence when instructions are given by a person in authority rather than be rude to that person by arguing with him or her. In still another use, persons in Asian cultures may view silence as a sign of respect, particularly to an elder or a person in authority. Nurses and other care-givers need to be aware of the possible meanings of silence when they co me across the personal anxiety their patients may be experiencing. Nurses should recognize their o wn personal and cultural construction of silence so that a patient’s silence is not interrupted too early or allowed to go on unnecessarily. A nurse who understands the healing(治愈) value of silence can use this understanding to assist in the care of patients from their own and from other cu ltures. 32.What does the author say about silence in conversations? A. It implies anger. B. It promotes friendship. C. It is culture-specific. D. It is content-based. 33.Which of the following people might regard silence as a call for careful thought? A. The Chinese. B. The French. C. The Mexicans. D. The Russians. 34.What does the author advise nurses to do about silence? A. Let it continue as the patient pleases. B. Break it while treating patients. C. Evaluate its harm to patients. D. Make use of its healing effects.
35.What may be the best title for the text? A. Sound and Silence B. What It Means to Be Silent C. Silence to Native Americans D. Speech Is Silver; Silence Is Gold 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。 Secret codes (密码) keep messages private。Banks, companies, and government agencies use secret codes in doing business, especially when information is sent by computer. People have used secret codes for thousands of years. 36 Code breaking never lags(落后) far behind code making. The science of creating and reading coded messages is called cryptography. There are three main types of cryptography. 37 For example, the first letters of “My elephant e ats too many eels” Spell out the hidden message “Meet me.” 38 You might represent each letter with a number, for example, Let?s number the letters of the al phabet, in order, from 1 to 26. If we substitute a number for each letter, the message “Meet me” w ould read “13 5 20 13 5.” A code uses symbols to replace words, phrases, or sentences. To read the message of a real code, you must have a code book. 39 For example, “bridge” might stand for “meet” and “out” might stand for “me.” The message “bridge out” would actually mean “ Meet me.” 40 However, it is also hard to keep a code book secret for long. So codes must be changed frequently. A. It is very hard to break a code without the code book. B. In any language, some letters are used more than others. C. Only people who know the keyword can read the message. D. As long as there have been codes, people have tried to break them. E. You can hide a message by having the first letters of each word spell it out. F. With a code book, you might write down words that would stand for other words. G. Another way to hide a message is to use symbols to stand for specific letters of the alphabet. 第三部分 英语知识运用 （共两节，满分 45 分） 第一节 完形填空（共 20 小题；每小题 1.5 分，满分 30 分） 阅读下面短文，从短文后各题所给的四个选项（A、B、C 和 D）中，选出可以填入空白处 的最佳选项，并在答题卡上将该项涂黑。 A Heroic Driver Larry works with Transport Drivers.
