第一节(共20小题;每小题2分,满分40分)

阅读下列短文,从每题所给的四个选项(A、B、C和D)中,选出最佳选项。

A

The bus was crowded with passengers going home from the market, most of them carrying heavy bags and baskets full of fruit and vegetables they had bought there. There were no seats left when Catherine got on the bus, and she was forced to stand beside a very fat woman on one side and on the other a thin, serious-looking man in dark glasses. There was nothing to hold on to, and the bus was going so fast that if it had not been for the people on each side of her, Catherine would have fallen over.

Suddenly she left her bag flipping down her arm but could not manage to pull it up again.

“Oh, dear, ” she said, “I’m losing my bag.” “Don’t worry, ” said the man. “I’ll see if I can get it for you.” Somehow he managed to bend down and pull the bag up round her shoulder again. “Thanks a lot, ” said Catherine. “Not at all, ” the man spoke hurriedly. “Anyway, I’m getting off in a minute. You’ll have more room.” At the next stop the man and half a dozen people got off. Catherine was at last able to get a seat. She felt tired and hungry so she opened her bag to find the chocolate she had bought in the market.

The chocolate was there, but her wallet containing all her money and the return ticket had gone.

31. The passengers had been to__________ .

A. the department

B. the cinema

C. the market

D. different places

32. Catherine stood __________.

33. As the bus was going fast, Catherine managed________ .

B. to stop her bag from falling

C. to hold on to the fat woman and the thin man

D. to pull her bag up again

B

Be care of those who use the truth to deceive(欺骗). When someone tells you something that is true, but leaves out important information that should be included, he can create a false impression.

For example, someone might say, “I just won a hundred dollars on the lottery(彩票). It was great. I took that dollar ticket back to the store and turned it in for one hundred dollars!”

This guy’s a winner, right? Maybe, maybe not. We then discover that he bought two hundred tickets, and only one was a winner. He’s really a big loser!

He didn’t say anything that was false, but he purposely(故意) omitted important information. That’s called a half-truth. Half-truths are not technically lies, but they are just as dishonest.·

Dishonest candidates(候选人) in political campaigns often use this tactic(策略). Let’s say that during Governor Smith’s last term(任期), her state lost one million jobs and gained three million jobs. Then she seeks another term. One of her opponents runs an ad saying, “During Governor Smith’s term, the s t ate lost one million jobs!” That’s true. However an honest statement would have been, “During Governor Smith’s term, the state had a net gain of two million jobs.”

Advertisers will sometimes use half-truths. It’s against the law to make false claims so they try to mislead you with the truth. An ad might show off, “Nine out of ten doctors r ecommend Yucky Pills to cure nose pimples.” It fails to mention that they only asked ten doctors and nine of them work for the Yucky Corporation.

This kind of dishonesty happens too often. It’s a sad fact of life: Lies are lies, and sometimes the truth can lie as well.

35. Which statement is true according to the article?

A. Whenever telling the truth, people are really lying.

B. One can get rich in a flash by getting lottery tickets .

C. All governors help their states.

D. The truth can be used in dishonest ways.

36. The underlined word “omitted” in the fourth paragraph probably means _____.

A. spent money

B. left out

C. told about

D. exposed

37. The author clearly wants people to _____.

A. think carefully about what they read and hear

B. learn to tell half-truths

C. trust no one but the best friends

D. vote for female candidates

38. Another suitable title for this selection would be _____.

A. Telling the Truth

B. Everyone Lies

C. Lying With the Truth

D. Trust Nobody

C

Our surroundings are being polluted faster than nature and man’s present efforts cannot prevent it.

Time is bringing us more people, and more people will bring us more industry, more cars, larger cities, and the growing use of man-made materials.

What can explain and solve this problem? The fact is that pollution is caused by man-by his desire for a modern way of life. We make “increasing industrialization” (工业化)our chief aim. So we are often ready to offer everything: clean air, pure water, good food, our health and the future of our children. There is a constant flow of people from the countryside into the cities, eager for the benefits of our modern society. But as our technological achievements have grown in the last twenty years, pollution has become a serious problem.

Isn’t it time we stopped to ask ourselves where we are going-and why? It makes one think of the story about the airline pilot who told his passengers over the loudspeaker: “I’ve some good news and some bad news. The good news is that we’re making rapid progress at 530 miles per hour. The bad news is that we’re lost and don’t know where we’re going.” The sad fact is that this becomes a true story when spoken of our modern society.

39. Man cannot prevent the world from being polluted because_______.

A. the population of the world is increasing fast.

B. people use too many man-made materials.

C. we have more and more industry.

D. We are producing more cars, trucks and buses.

40. Why do people crowd into the cities?

A. They want very much to find well-paid jobs.

B. They are eager to enjoy the achievements of our society.

C. They have become tired of their home land.

D. They have a strong wish to become industrial workers.

41. What does the story about the airline pilot tell us?

A. Man knows where the society is going.

B. people do not welcome the rapid development of modern society.

C. Man can do little about the problem of pollution.

D. The speaker is worried about the future of our society.

42. What does the writer really want to say in this passage?

A. With the development of technology pollution has become a serious problem.

B. lower the speed of development to stop pollution.

C. It’s time we did something to reduce pollution.

D. As industry is growing fast, pollution is the natural result.

The Golden Gate Bridge joins the beautiful city of san Francisco with the suburbs (郊区) to the north. Each day, about one hundred thousand cars cross the bridge, taking people to and from the city. More than half of them cross the bridge during the morning and evening rush hours, as a result, the trip is not pleasant.

Now, however, there is at least one group of happy commuters (经常往返者). These are the people who travel under the bridge instead of on it. They go to work by boat and enjoy it so much that most of them say they will never go by car again.

The boat they take is the large, quiet, comfortable “Golden Gate”. Commuters can enjoy the sun on the boat. In the morning they can have breakfast in the coffee shop, and in the evening they can have a drink in t he bar while they are looking at San Francisco’s famous scene and the nearby hills.

The trip takes only thirty minutes and is not expensive. But best of all, being on a boat seems to make people feel more friendly towards each other. Two commuters who met on the “Golden Gate” have already got married.

Because the boat had been so successful, there are plans to use other, still larger boats. There is also a plan for a high-speed boat that will make the trip in only fifteen minutes. Not everyone is happy abou t that. “A lot of people don’t want to get the trip faster,” said one commuter, “They feel that an hour is just enough time to rest.”

43. Over __________ cross the Golden Gate Bridge during rush hours every day.

A. 100,000 people

B. 50,000 people

C. 100,000 cars

D. 50,000 cars

44. Which of the following is not the advantage of taking a boat?

A. Going to work by boat doesn’t cost too much.

B. By taking a boat, they can enjoy the beautiful scene of the city.

C. It takes fifteen minutes for people to go to work by boat.

D. People can make friends during the trip.

45. In the future, __________.

A. larger boats will be used to carry commuters

B. a big coffee shop will be built

C. more and more people will get married on the boat

D. people will all go to work by boat

46. Many people don’t like the new idea for a high-speed boat because _________.

A. they don’t want to go to work earlier

B. they like to stay on the boat

C. they won’t have enough time to rest

第一节阅读表达(共5小题;每小题2分,满分10分)

阅读下面短文并回答问题,将答案写到相应的位置上(请注意问题后的词数要求)。

What will people die of 100 years from now? If you think that is a simple question, you have not been paying attention to the revolution that is taking place in bio-technology.

With the help of new medicine, the human body will last a very long time. Death will come mainly from

accidents, murder and war. Today’s leading killers, such as heart disease, cancer, and aging itself, wil l become

distant memories.

In discussion of technological changes, the Internet gets most of the attention these days. But the change in medicine can be the real technological event of our times. How long can humans live? Human brains were known to decide the final death. Cells are the basic units of all living things, and until recently, scientists were sure that

the life of cells could not go much beyond 120 years because the basic materials of cell, such as thos e of brain cells, would not last forever. But the upper limits will be broken by now medicine. Someti mes between 2050 and 2100, medicine will have advanced to the point at which every 10 years or so , people will be able to take medicine to repair their organs (The medicine, made up of the basic buil ding materials of life, will build new brain cells,

heart cells, and so on—in much the same way our bodies make

new skin cells to take the place of old ones). It is exciting to imagine that the advance in

technology may be changing the most basic condition of human existence, but many technical proble ms still must be cleared upon the way to this wonderful future.

56. What are the present major killers according to the writer? (No more than 10 words)

_____________________________________________________________________________ 57. What does the underlined word revolution in Paragraph 1 mean? (No more than 5 words)

_____________________________________________________________________________ 58. How can human live longer in the future? (No more than 10 words)

_____________________________________________________________________________ 59. If human can live longer in the future, do you think it is bad or good for the society?(open)(No m ore than 20 words)

_____________________________________________________________________________ 60. Why are scientists sure that the life of cells can not go much beyond 120 years?(No more

than 20 words)

Hello!

My name is Li Hua. It’s a great honor to be here to have this interview for an English guide in the summer vacation.

To begin with, I’m good at English and I keep practicing my spoken English in everyday life. I often chat in voice with some English-speaking net-pals in my spare time, which contributes much to my fluency in oral English. Besides, I’m so outgoing and quick in thought that I can easily get along well with others. What’s more, I have been living here all along ever since I was born, so the history and the culture of this city are quite familiar to me and I’m sure I can be an outstanding guide.

If I am given the chance, I’ll spare no effort to do it well. I’m looking forward to your early reply.

Thank you.
