第二部分：阅读理解（共两节，满分 40 分） 第一节 （共 15 小题； 每小题 2 分， 满分 30 分） 阅读下列短文， 从每题所给的四个选项 （A.B.C.D） 中，选出最佳选项。 A Bright red post boxes，the Queen and queuing—what do they all have in common? They are all important parts of British life.At least I thought so. However，the ability to queue（排队） for long periods of time，once believed to be a traditional characteristic of the British，is no longer tolerated by people in the UK，according to a survey done by British bank Barclays. Once upon a time，queuing was seen as normal. During World War Ⅱ，everyone had to queue up to receive their daily supply of foods.In fact，if you didn’t stand up and wait in line with all the others，it was seen as uncivilized (不文明的)． The famous English doubledecker buses，with only one entrance，might also help explain why queuing was seen as part of British life. Almost always， there is a queue to get in.But perhaps the British are tired of being pushed past by the Spanish， the Italian or the French as they queue up to get a table at a restaurant.The people of these other European countries have more than one entrance to their buses，which explains their more relaxed attitude to the queue. Two minutes is now the longest time most British people are prepared to bear and wait. The main reason why British people are no longer prepared to queue could be the Internet，which allows us to carry out tasks quickly. ―Used to buying without delay，customers are even giving up purchases(购买) rather than wait their turn，‖ says Stuart Neal of Barclaycard. ―Shoppers are also less likely to queue for long if the item they are buying is of low value.‖ Perhaps I will have to replace ―queuing‖ with ―impatience‖ in my list of things I relate to the British.
21．What can we learn about the tradition of queuing in Britain? A．It was a product of the slow pace of life. B．It was a long time tradition as old as the Queen. C．It was considered a symbol of a civilized behavior. D．It has made the British different from other Europeans. 22．According to the passage，the British gradually stopped queuing because ___. A．they prefer shopping. B．they follow the example of foreigners C．British buses have more than one entrance D．the Internet has changed their way of life 23．It can be learned from the text that ________. A．the British get impatient with queuing for long B．the British have to queue to receive foods C．the British like to eat in foreign restaurants D．the British prefer to take doubledecker buses 24．The author’s main purpose of writing the passage is ________. A．to tell us the influence of the Internet on the British ways of life B．to compare the cultural differences between Britain and other European countries C．to talk about the changes in the attitude to queuing in Britain D．to report his research on the British ways of life B Father Maurice Chase used a special way to celebrate his 90th birthday. The Catholic priest(牧师) took $ 15,000 in cash to Los Angeles’ gutter(贫民区) and gave it away. Twenty wheelchair–bound people received $100 bills, while the rest received $1to $ 3 each． ―I come out here to tell them that God loves them and I love them and that someone is concerned about them,‖ Chase said． Chase has given away cash and blessings every Sunday at the same corner for 24 years. Several hundred people wait for him every week． He makes a point of coming on Thanksgiving and Christmas, too, but this is the first year he spent his birthday in the downtown neighborhood where people live mainly in shelters and on dirty sidewalks．
―It’s the place that makes me the happiest．I just love it,‖ said Chase. ―I look forward to coming here.‖ The money comes from donations he receives from rich and famous people he met during his work as assistant to the president of Loyola Marymount University． The crowd broke into choruses of ―Happy Birthday‖ several times. Some people presented him birthday cards, to his delight． Travis Kemp, a 51–year–old disabled man with long black hair, was one of the lucky 20 to receive $ 100. He said he had no special plans for spending the money. ―He has a lot of respect from me,‖ Kemp said. ―I know I couldn’t do it.‖
25 Which of the following makes Chase feel the happiest? A. Celebrating his birthday with his neighbours. B. Working in Loyola Marymount University. C. Celebrating Christmas with the people he has helped. D. Going to Los Angeles’ gutter to help people there. 26. What’s the source of the money Chase used to help people? A. All his savings. B. His earnings as a Catholic priest. C. Donations from the wealthy and celebrities. D. Donations from Loyola Marymount University. 27. Travis Kemp is mentioned in the text to show _______. A. he was the luckiest person on that day. B. the disabled need to be taken care of. C. Chase is greatly appreciated by the needy. D. even old people came to celebrate Chase’s birthday. 28. Which statement is true according to the passage? A. Every recipient could get $100 in cash from Father Maurice Chase. B. Father Maurice Chase gave the cash away not only on his birthday but also on other occasions.
C. Although Father Maurice Chase gave the cash away on his birthday, he didn’t receive anything in return. D. Father Maurice Chase earned a lot of money as assistant to the president of Loyola Marymount University. C READY or not, the college application season has begun. There are two main kinds of early admissions programs: Early Action and Early Decision. Early Action is a great choice for the well-prepared student. Students apply early, and are allowed to apply under an Early Action program to as many colleges as they choose. The biggest advantage for students is that colleges let them know early – in most cases, before Jan 1. Roughly 15 percent of colleges and universities offer an Early Action option. Oct 15 is now the first deadline for many colleges and universities. This movement toward earlier deadlines is especially popular in the Southeast, with many of the large public universities leading the way. North Carolina State University, the University of South Carolina and the University of Georgia all have an Oct 15 Early Action deadline. Early Decision is a promise that cannot be reversed. Students who are accepted must take back their other applications and should attend that school. Students are allowed to apply to just one school under an Early Decision program. Early Decision deadlines are in early November, with colleges letting students know by mid-December. Many students believe that they are more likely to be accepted if they apply for Early Decision, but it actually depends. In some cases there is big increase in students being accepted, and at other colleges it is not that big at all. Generally, the strongest students are applying early. Athletes and students with focused interests are encouraged to apply for Early Decision 29. What is the author’s purpose in writing the article? A. To explain the process of applying to study in the US. B. To describe two types of US college early admissions programs. C. To encourage students who want to study in the US to apply early. D. To list the advantages of early admissions programs. 30. Which of the following statements is TRUE of Early Action according to the article? A. A student who is accepted as an Early Action applicant must attend the college they apply to. B. The deadline for Early Action is usually two months earlier than the one for Early Decision. C. Students can apply to several colleges at the same time under an Early Action program. D. Students can apply for Early Action at the majority of universities and
colleges in the US. 31. The underlined word ―reversed‖ in Paragraph 6 probably means _______. A. changed B. balanced C. accepted D. Arranged 32. What can be concluded from the article? A. Students are not allowed to apply for both Early Decision and Early Action at the same time. B. Students applying for Early Decision impress colleges because they tend to be more active than others. C. Early Decision is most fit for students who are skilled in some field. D. Those applying for Early Decision have a better chance of being accepted than those applying for Early Action. D I have happy memories of trips to Europe, but my trip to Romania was unique. My husband was born there, but his family sent him to study in Italy. He hasn’t seen his family since he was 16. When we reached Bucharest, his family was waiting outside to greet us. After a lot of hugging, kissing, and crying, his family also embraced (拥抱) me---the American wife with two young children. They had great interest in me. Few Americans visited Romania at that time, and most Romanians had little chance to travel. His family loved our gifts. We made trips to the Black Sea and the Carpathian Mountains. Eating at outdoor cafes to the sound of gypsy violins was very different, but nothing was as unforgettable as family dinners. Most Romanian homes had old-fashioned washing machines but no dryers. It was a hot summer. My husband’s relatives didn’t want to risk dirtying their clothes. Their solution was as simple as it was surprising: The women had dinner in their bras and slips (衬裙). The men were shirtless. They all had jobs, so time was precious. Disrobing (脱去衣服) for dinner was a small inconvenience compared with the effort of doing laundry – at least in their household, and perhaps all across Romania. I washed my clothes by hand and hung them outdoors to dry. I, of course, having just met them, ate fully clothed. On the last night of our three-week stay, we had a large family dinner. I was tired of washing my clothes. So I pulled my dress over my head and placed it on the chair behind me. The table applauded. Even with my poor Romanian, I understood that they were saying: ―She’s part of our family now.‖ 33. When the author arrived in her husband’s hometown, _____. A. his family showed no respect for her at first B. she intended to talk to his family in English C. she got extra attention from his family for her nationality D. she found that she hadn’t brought enough gifts for his family 34. What surprised the author most during her visit to her husband’s family?
A. Most of his family members didn’t travel a lot at the time. B. Women in his family had dinner only in their bras and slips. C. Most of her husband’s relatives didn’t like doing laundry. D. They had old-fashioned washing machines but no dryers at home. 35. On the last night of the author’s stay, the family applauded her because ____. A. the author disrobed for dinner as the family did B. they just wanted to show their love for the author C. the author could finally understand them easily D. it was time for the author to give a speech
第二节 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。 （共 5 小题，每小题 2 分，共 10 分） What is your favorite colour? Do you like yellow, orange, red? ___36___. Do you prefer greys and blues? Then you are probably quiet, shy, and you would rather follow than lead. You tend to be pessimist. At least, this is what psychologists tell us, and they should know, because they have been seriously studying the meaning of colour preference, as well as the effect that colours have on human beings. ___37___ . If you happen to love brown, you did so, as soon as you opened your eyes, or at least as soon as you could see clearly. __38__.

A black bridge over the Thames River, near London, used to be the scene of more suicides(自杀) than any other bridge in the area---until it was repainted green. The number of suicide attempts immediately fell sharply. Perhaps it would have fallen even more if the bridge had been done in pink or baby blue. ___40__. It is an established fact that factory workers work better, harder, and have fewer accidents when their machines are painted orange rather than black or grey. A. On the other hand, black is depressing. B. They tell us, among other facts, that we do not choose our favourite colour as we grow up --- we are born with our preference. C.

When it came to city and country life，I think they all have their own advantages and disadvantages. For city life，you know，the traffic is too convenient that you can arrange your life flexible and easily. At the same time，there are many great opportunity for you when looking for jobs. Also，there is no doubt the quality of life is fantastic. Fortunately，living in cities，you will suffer much stress and heavy air pollution. For country life， as we all know it， the life is peaceful and the environment is beautiful， which is both good for your health. However，it is inconvenient for people to go out. Besides, the communication is easy. 第二节：书面表达（满分 25 分） 假设你是李华，上个星期天去市图书馆看书时发现了一些问题。请根据下列提示，用英 语给馆长写一封信，反映情况。 1. 新书太少； 2. 书架上的书比较混乱；
