  第二部分 阅读理解 (共两节,满分40分)

  阅读下列短文, 从每题所给的四个选项(A 、B 、C 和 D )中, 选出最佳选项, 并在答题卡上将该项涂黑。

  A

  One night I was sitting in my room half-listening as my 15-year-old brother Tommy fought with my 12-year-old brother Kevin. I didn’t pay attention when Kevin rushed up the stairs with the hurt on his face.

  About 20 minutes later, as I was walking upstairs I heard Kevin crying inside the bathroom. I knocked on the door and asked, “Hey Kevin, do you want to talk?”

  No answer. I tried again, “Why don’t you come out of there?”

  Again, no answer.

  So, joking around, I grabbed a stack of cards and a pencil and wrote, “If you don’t want to talk, we can write notes to each other.”

  An hour later I was still sitting on the floor outside the bathroom with two stacks of cards in front of me. One was blank and one was cards from Kevin on which he had translated all his yucky feelings into words for me. As I read one of Kevin’s notes, tears came to my eyes. It said, “Nobody in this family cares about me. I’m not the youngest, and I’m not the oldest. Tommy thinks I’m silly and Dad wishes he had the other Kevin as a kid because he’s better at basketball. And you’re never around to even notice me.”

  Tears came to my eyes as I wrote back to him. “You know Kevin, I really do love you and I’m sorry I don’t always show it. I am here for you and you are loved in this family.”

  There was no answer for a while, but then I heard a tearing sound coming from inside the bathroom. Kevin, who had run out of cards wrote on a torn paper cup. “Thanks.”

  I wrote back “For what?” it returned to me with “Loving me” on it.

  Since then, I try my best to never only half-notice my family members any more. Kevin and I have a closer relationship now. And sometimes when one of us notices that the other is upset, we’ll smile and say “Write it on a paper cup.”

  21. What could be the reason that Kevin’s Dad doesn’t like him?

  A. Kevin is not as clever as his brother. B. He is neither the youngest nor the oldest.

  C. Kevin doesn’t like to make friends with others. D. Kevin is not good at playing basketball.

  22. What do we know about the writer?

  A. She has two children in her family.

  B. She didn’t pay enough attention to Kevin before.

  C. She used to show her love to Kevin.

  D. She has a closer relationship with Tommy after that.

  23. What does the writer want to tell us?

  A. Everyone should show how they love their family members.

  B. It’s hard to get on well with family members.

  C. It’s important to keep company with the young.

  D. We should try our best to stop our children from fighting.

  B

  I went to Arizona earlier this month to see what the college of the future might look like. What I found is an exciting new era of higher education that will help more students get a great, personalized education at an affordable price.

  This future may not always include the lecture halls, dormitories, and other features of the traditional college experience. Instead, the colleges I visited are experimenting with ways for students to get their degrees online, allowing them to take courses any place and at any time.

  These “colleges without walls,” as they are sometimes called, are at the forefront of the effort to broaden access to higher education, especially for low-income students with full-time jobs and families. During my visit, I heard encouraging stories of students who were taking advantage of these flexible learning models to pursue degrees that could put them on paths to new careers.

  One of those students was Shawn Lee. He had a compelling story: After dropping out of college decades ago, he found himself in a series of low-paying, often back-breaking jobs. He recently decided to get his degree when he had his first child and wanted to start building a better life.

  Tucked away in an industrial park in Tempe, Rio Salado didn’t look much like a traditional institute of higher education. There were no students running to class. Just a couple of glass-faced office buildings. The college had just 22 full-time faculty serving 60,000 students, with more than half of them attending classes online.

  Several students I met during my visit said they liked learning online. “I’ve taken college classes in a big auditorium with herds of people. There was no personal connection,” one student said. “Now I can reach my teacher with the click of a mouse.”

  After several days’ visit, I left Arizona feeling quite optimistic about what the future holds for higher education.

  24. What does “colleges without walls” in the third paragraph refer to?

  A. Colleges that have no walls around.

  B. Colleges that students attend online .

  C. Colleges that can be entered freely.

  D. Colleges that give students more freedom.

  25. What made Shawn Lee return to attend college again ?

  A. That he has nothing to do. B. That he couldn’t find a job.

  C. That the cost of the college is low. D. That he wanted to find a better job.

  26. How did the writer feel after the visit ?

  A. Hopeful. B. Dissatisfied. C. Disappointed . D. Upset.

  27. What is the writer’s purpose by writing this passage?

  A. To explain what “colleges without walls” are.

  B. To advertise the colleges.

  C. To encourage people to attend higher education .

  D. To introduce a new model of education.

  C

  For better eyesight, doctors advise limiting the hours of screen time and encourage having enough eye resting time.

  However, another study shows that sitting in front of computer or TV screens for long hours is not the only environmental cause for nearsightedness. An Australian research team compared the prevalence(流行)of and reasons for myopia among young children of Chinese origin in Sydney and Singapore. The study concluded that the prevalence of nearsightedness among children in Sydney was lower than children in Singapore, even though they spent more time in front of computer and TV screens. The major finding is that children in Sydney spend longer hours on outdoor activities than those in Singapore.

  Indoor and outdoor sports activities both make the eyes focus on more distant objects, which prevents the eyes from changing shape. But outdoor activities may better help avoid myopia than indoor sports activities.

  Jane Gwiazda, a psychologist from New England College of Optometry in Boston, US, who does research in sight problems, says: “Natural light is good for eye growth. And extra vitamin D from the sun might contribute to eye growth.”

  Many doctors suggest that every child get its first eye test done when he/she is about two and half years old, and even if his/her sight seems perfect.

  It is necessary for myopic children to wear glasses to prevent headaches, trouble reading or injuries. It is also important that schools invite doctors to test their students’ eyes.

  If that is not possible, school teachers should at least encourage parents and children to have regular eye examinations and wear glasses. And parents should remember not only to limit the total screen time for their children, but also to encourage them to spend time outdoors.

  28. What’s the aim of the study by the Australian research team?

  A. To find the reasons for nearsightedness.

  B. To find the ways to treat nearsightedness.

  C. To prove the bad effects of nearsightedness.

  D. To prove the prevalence of nearsightedness.

  29. Why are there fewer children with near-sighted in Sydney than in Singapore?

  A. Because Sydney children watch less TV.

  B. Because Sydney children read fewer books.

  C. Because Sydney children use computers less.

  D. Because Sydney children do more outdoor sports.

  30. What conclusion can we draw from the passage?

  A. Sydney children don’t study hard.

  B. Singapore children don’t like sports.

  C. Indoor sports activities do little good to eyes.

  D. Natural light is better for eyes than room light.

  31. Which of the following statements is NOT true?

  A. Children should have regular eye tests.

  B. Children’s screen time should be limited.

  C. Children needn’t wear glasses when their myopia isn’t serious.

  D. Both schools and parents should take care of children’s eyes.

  D

  I read somewhere that we spend a full third of our lives waiting. But where are we doing all of this waiting, and what does it mean to an impatient society like ours? To understand the issue, let’s take a look at three types of “waits”.

  The very purest form of waiting is the Watched-Pot Wait. It is without doubt the most annoying of all. Take filling up the kitchen sink(洗碗池) as an example. There is absolutely nothing you can do while this is going on but keep both eyes fixed on the sink until it’s full. During these waits, the brain slips away from the body and wanders about until the water runs over the edge of the counter and onto your socks. This kind of wait makes the waiter helpless and mindless.

  A cousin to the Watched-Pot Wait is the Forced Wait. This one requires a bit of discipline. Properly preparing packaged noodle soup requires a Forced Wait. Directions are very specific. “Bring three cups of water to boil, add mix, simmer three minutes, remove from heat, let stand five minutes.” I have my doubts that anyone has actually followed the procedures strictly. After all, Forced Waiting requires patience.

  Perhaps the most powerful type of waiting is the Lucky-Break Wait. This type of wait is unusual in that it is for the most part voluntary. Unlike the Forced Wait, which is also voluntary, waiting for your lucky break does not necessarily mean that it will happen.

  Turning one’s life into a waiting game requires faith and hope, and is strictly for the optimists among us. On the surface it seems as ridiculous as following the directions on soup mixes, but the Lucky-Break Wait well serves those who are willing to do it. As long as one doesn’t come to rely on it, wishing for a few good things to happen never hurts anybody.

  We certainly do spend a good deal of our time waiting. The next time you’re standing at the sink waiting for it to fill while cooking noodle soup that you’ll have to eat until a large bag of cash falls out of the sky, don’t be desperate. You’re probably just as busy as the next guy.

  32. While doing a Watched-Pot Wait, we tend to ___________.

  A. keep ourselves busy B. stay focused

  C. grow anxious D. get absent-minded

  33. What is the difference between the Forced Wait and the Watched-Pot Wait?

  A. The Watched-Pot Wait needs directions.

  B. The Forced Wait makes people passive.

  C. The Forced Wait requires some self-control.

  D. The Watched-Pot Wait engages body and brain.

  34. What can we learn about the Lucky-Break Wait?

  A. It is less voluntary than the Forced Wait.

  B. It doesn’t give people faith and hope.

  C. It is more fruitful than the Forced Wait.

  D. It doesn’t always bring the desired result.

  35. What does the author advise us to do the next time we are waiting?

  A. Don’t lose heart. B. Don’t rely on others.

  C. Do something else. D. Take it seriously.

  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。

  Procrastination is a phenomenon we are familiar with. When we procrastinate, we waste our free time and put off important tasks we should do till it’s too late. 36 Here, I will share some personal steps taken to overcome procrastination with great success.

  Break your work down into little parts. Part of the reason why we procrastinate is that we find the work too overwhelming (巨大的)for us. Break it down into little parts, and then focus on one part at a time. If you still procrastinate after doing so, break it down even further. 37

  Change your environment. Look at your work desk and your room. Do they make you want to work or do they make you sleepy? 38

  Create a detailed timeline with specific deadlines. Having just one deadline for your work is like an invitation to procrastinate. That’s because we would get the impression that we have time and keep pushing everything back until it’s too late. 39 In this way, you know you have to finish each task by a certain date.

  40 I’m pretty sure if you spend just 10 minutes talking to people like Steve Jobs or Bill Gates, you’ll be more inspired to act than if you spend the 10 minutes doing nothing. The people we are with influence our behavior.

  A. It’s a bad habit eating us away and stopping us achieving greater success in life.

  B. Hang out with people who inspire you to take action.

  C. Break down your project, and then create an overall timeline with specific deadlines for each small task.

  D. If it’s the latter, you should begin to change your workspace.

  E. Seek out someone who has already achieved the similar outcome to your goals.

  F. Having a companion makes the whole process much more fun.

  G. Soon, your task will be so simple that you will be thinking you can do it now.

  In modern society, competition is everywhere. No wonder a English philosopher considers competition the source of a series of problem such as frustration and anxiety. Therefore, if we stressed cooperation too much, there would be no progress. In my opinion, all are important and necessary.

  Let’s take the competition at school for example. Even a gifted student won’t make a remarkable progress if he is in a class with competition. That’s because competition, or rather, challenge is a driving force made him go forward. In the other hand, if we don’t cooperate with each other, it’s impossible for us learn from each other. And that’s why most of the great discoveries or inventions in the modern world are the result of cooperation.

  To conclude, those who laugh last are the people who can successful cope with the relationship between competition and cooperation.

  Dear Sir or Madam,

  I am Li Hua, a student in Class 8, Grade 2. From the notice put up on the wall in our school, I have learned that our school radio station needs an English broadcaster. Thus I am here writing to you to introduce myself.

  On the one hand, I take great interest in broadcasting. On the other hand, I have received some professional training during the last five years. Now I would like to put what I have learned into practice. Moreover, I’m particularly good at spoken English. So I hold the belief that I am quite suitable for the post. I would appreciate it if you could give me a chance to work for the school radio station.

  I am looking forward to your reply.

  Yours,
