阅读下面短文,掌握其大意,从每题所给的ABCD四个选项中,选出最佳选项,并在答题卡上将该项涂黑。

Outside our hotel in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, a seemingly ancient woman waited beside the door with her hand outstretched(伸出的). Every day I put my hand in hers as our eyes __36__. She never __37__ to return my smile, my grasp, and my greeting.

On the last day of our __38__, I found myself __39__ on a busy corner across the street from our hotel. Bicycles and motorbikes rushed in front of me. We had been advised to walk __40__ through the heavy traffic without looking right or left. Let them __41__ us. But tonight I was by myself and felt __42__ to face the stream of vehicles. __43__ I hesitated on the sidewalk, I felt a hand on my elbow and looked down to see the smile of my small beggar friend looking up at me. She nodded her head toward the street, __44__ that she would take me across. Together, we moved slowly into the chaos.

Then we moved on __45__ the sidewalk, where she pulled my face down to hers, kissed me on both cheeks, and then walked away, still smiling and waving back to me. I had not given her a single coin. We had __46__ something vastly more important—a warming of hearts in friendship.

Traveling in poorer nations, I have __47__ a variety of ways to deal with beggars. The most __48__ response of tourists faced with those extremely poor people is to __49__ them and focus their eyes elsewhere. I have seen people push away an outstretched hand in __50__. A few may hurriedly drop a few coins, and then make a quick getaway in hopes that another 20 ragged beggars won’t immediately appear on the __51__.

For many reasons, giving money is not the best __52__ to an outstretched hand. The greatest gift is time and respect. To look beggars in the eye and smile, thus acknowledging their existence, is a small thing. Putting your hand into another’s outstretched hand and grasping it __53__ for a moment is also a small thing. But these are important. Everyone needs __54__, to be seen as worthy of being __55__, to feel appreciated and loved. And I believe that everyone is worthy and worth knowing.

My favorite English teacher could draw humor out of the driest material. It wasn’t forced on us either. He took Samuel Johnson’s dictionary, Addison’s essays, and many other literary wonders from the eighteenth century and made them hilarious, even at eight o’clock in the morning. The thing that amazed me most was that the first time I read these works on my own some of them seemed dead, but the second time, after his explanation, I couldn’t believe that I hadn’t seen the humor. The stories and poems and plays were suddenly filled with allusions(典故) and irony and hilarious moments. I learned more from him than from any other teacher.

My least favorite English teacher also made people laugh. Some students found him to be wonderfully funny. Many others did not. He assigned journals over a six week period, to be written in every day. At the end of the six weeks I had a notebook full of bits and pieces about my ideas, short stories, reactions to what we had read, and so on. Our teacher announced that we would be grading each other’s journals. Mine was passed to Joe, that class clown, who always behaved in a funny or silly way. He saw it fit to make joke of and said, “This writing isn’t fit to line the bottom of a birdcage.” Our teacher laughed at that funny remark. It hurt me so much that the anger from it has driven my writing and teaching ever since.

So what makes the difference? Humor is one of the most powerful tools teachers or writers have. It can build up students and classes and make them excited about literature and writing, or it can tear them apart. It is true that humor is either productive or counter-productive and self-defeating.

59. The passage mainly discusses _____.

A. teaching         B. literature      C. humor        D. knowledge

60. The underlined word “hilarious” in Paragraph 1 probably means _____.

A. funny       B. tiring           C. inspiring        D. brilliant

61. With his favorite English teacher, the writer found it most amazing that _____.

A. his teacher was very learned

B. his teacher was very humorous

C. the works by Johnson and Addison were very humorous

D. few were able to find humor in works by Johnson and others

62. The English teacher the writer disliked most _____.

A. was not able to make students laugh B. hurt his students’ feelings

C. didn’t let his students do the grading D. had no sense of humor

C

Does money buy happiness? Not! Ah, but would a little more money make us a little happier? Many of us smirk(傻笑,假笑) and nod. There is, we believe, some connection between financial fitness and emotional fulfillment. Three in four American college students—nearly double the 1970 proportion— now consider it “very important” or “essential” that they become “very well off financially”. Money matters.

But a surprising fact of life is that in countries where nearly everyone can afford life’s necessities, increasing wealth matters surprisingly little. The connection between income and happiness is “surprisingly weak,” observed University of Michigan researcher Ronald Inglehart in one 16-nation study of 170,000 people. Once comfortable, more money provides diminishing returns(报酬递减). The second piece of pie, or the second $100,000, never tastes as good as the first. Even lottery winners and the Forbes’ 100 wealthiest Americans surveyed by University of Illinois psychologist Ed Diener have expressed only slightly greater happiness than the average American. Making it big brings temporary joy. But in the long run wealth is like health: its complete absence can create suffering, but having it doesn’t guarantee happiness. Happiness seems less a matter of getting what we want than of wanting what we have.

Has our happiness, however, floated upward with the rising economic tide? Are we happier today than in 1940s, when two out of five homes lacked a shower or tub? Actually, we are not. Since 1957, the number of Americans who say they are “very happy” has declined from 35 to 32 percent. Meanwhile, the divorce rate has doubled, the teen suicide(自杀) rate has increased nearly three times, the violent crime rate has gone up nearly four times, and depression has mushroomed. Economic growth has provided no boost to human morale. When it comes to psychological well being, it is not the economy.

I call this soaring wealth and shrinking spirit “the American paradox.” More than ever, we have big houses and broken homes, high incomes and low confidence, secured rights and reduced civility. We are good at making a living but often fail at making a life. We celebrate our prosperity(繁荣) but long for a purpose. We treasure our freedoms but long for connection. In an age of plenty, we feel spiritual hunger. 

63. Which of the following statements best expresses the author’s view?

A. The more money we earn, the less returns we have.

B. The more money we earn, the happier we would be.

C. In the long run, money cannot guarantee happiness.

D. In the long run, happiness grows with economy.

64.“The second $100,000 never tastes as good as the first” because _____.

A. it is not so fresh as the first $100,000

B. it is not so important as the first $100,000

C. profit brought by it is less than that from the first $100,000

D. happiness brought by it is less than that from the first $100,000

65.According to the passage, people do well in making a living but don’t _____.

A. have any primary aimB. know how to spend money

C. know how to enjoy life  D. keep in touch with other people

66.The things that happened after 1957 are given to show that _____.

A. people’s spiritual needs cannot be fulfilled by wealth

B. family problems become more and more serious

C. young people are not happy about their life

D. social crimes have increased significantly

D

Science Fiction

The science fiction type of entertainment is considered by most to be fathered by Jules Verne (A Journey to the Center of the Earth and Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea) and H. G. Wells (The Time Machine and The War of the Worlds). Sci-Fi, as it is commonly shortened, is a fictional story in which science and technology have a significant influence on the characters and plot. Many such works are guesswork about what the future holds and how scientific findings and technological advances will shape humankind.

Writing in the late 1800s, Jules Verne was remarkably successful in his 10 guesses about future technologies of air conditioning, automobiles, the Internet, television, and underwater, air, and space travel. Unbelievably, of all places from which to choose, Jules Verne guessed Tampa, Florida, USA as the launching site of the first project to the Moon, which was only 200 kilometers away from the actual 1969 location at Cape Canaveral, Florida.

One of the best-known science fiction books is Nineteen Eighty-Four by George Orwell. Published in 1949, it was not meant as a prediction, but as a warning: Orwell was describing what he saw as the outcome of the ideas, trends, and emerging technologies of his time. Many invented terms from this novel have become common in everyday use, such as “big brother” and “doublethink”. Even the author’s name has been made into an adjective—Orwellian—and has become a warning descriptor for situations where privacy is lost and the individual becomes sacrifice under a totalitarian(极权主义) government. Nineteen Eighty-Four was translated into sixty-five languages within five years of its publication, setting a record that still stands.

What helps bring science fiction into being is usually a new discovery or innovation. The author creates an analysis of the potential influence and consequences and then wraps it in a pleasant story. For example, the beginning of space exploration was followed a few years later by the Star Trek television program and movie series. Advances in genetics(遗传学) cause fantasies of the end of disease, horrors of eugenics(优生学), and thrillers where creatures disappearing long ago are brought back to life. The science fiction author’s self-determined role is that of field glasses for humanity—searching the world of future possibilities upon the road which we are traveling. 

67. What can science fiction offer to people?

A. A forecast of how a new discovery could influence mankind.

B. A thoughtful look at the present drawbacks of technology.

C. An analysis of why a new technology could be used to harm human.

D. A thoughtful look at the past and what brought us to this point in history.

68. Which of the following best summarizes the description of Nineteen Eighty-Four?

A. A prediction of future technologies.B. A warning of cruel and unfair ruling.

C. The consequence of scientific findings. D. An imaginary perfect world of freedom.

69. From the passage we can learn that _____.

A. Nineteen Eighty-Four adopted some popular terms

B. H.G. Wells predicted the Internet in the late 1800s

C. Cape Canaveral was mentioned in Jules Verne’s fiction

D. Star Trek movie series were based on space exploration

70. According to the author, what is the role of science fiction in society?

A. A moral compass.     B. A reference of technology.

C. A record of science development.D. A consideration of possibilities.

 

第二节(共5小题;每小题2分,共10分)

    根据短文内容,从短文后的七个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。

Stay on the brighter side of life

One very important component of optimism is gratitude or feeling grateful. In fact, there is a strong connection between a grateful attitude and a heightened sense of well-being. Appreciate all the positives in your life by starting a gratitude journal in order to remember what you’re grateful for. ___71___

Feeling down? Instead of feeling sorry for yourself waiting for the universe to throw you a bone, try acting like you’re happy—even if you aren’t. A sincere smile and a forced smile will cause the same chemical reactions in your brain, so you can actually fool your mind into feeling better by making it react chemically as if things were going well. ___72___ Reassure yourself that everything is good— even if you don’t feel it.

“___73___ If you’re stuck in traffic, then everything else must be going horribly too,” says Anne Parker, a wellness counselor. By blowing negative events out of proportion, you’re setting yourself up for feeling down all day. Instead, acknowledge that you’re stuck in traffic, but also bring to mind something good, like the beautiful scenery outside the window. That way, you’ll get in the habit of forbidding negative circumstances from blanketing your whole day.

Swearing to lose 20 pounds or to run a marathon seems like goals leading to happiness, but they take time to achieve. ___74___ You may even end up admitting that you have been defeated. However, if you focus on the small milestones that occur along the way, you will feel positive about your progress, which will give you the strength to keep going.

___75___ Try making someone else’s day better. A report by United Healthcare and Volunteer Match found that volunteers are 72% more likely to characterize themselves as optimistic compared with non-volunteers. Plus, 89% of volunteers say that volunteering has improved their sense of well-being, and 92% say that it enriches their sense of purpose in life. 

 

A. Try to help someone in need.

B. Want to give your attitude a lift?

C. People tend to think in an either-or way.

D. Act in an optimistic way—smile, laugh, tell a joke.

E. You’ll fail to appreciate more important things in your life.

F. By focusing on not having accomplished them yet, you will start to feel down on yourself.

G. By remembering the pleasant things in your life, you can actually turn a negative attitude around.

阅读下面短文,掌握其大意,从每题所给的ABCD四个选项中,选出最佳选项,并在答题卡上将该项涂黑。

Outside our hotel in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, a seemingly ancient woman waited beside the door with her hand outstretched(伸出的). Every day I put my hand in hers as our eyes __36__. She never __37__ to return my smile, my grasp, and my greeting.

On the last day of our __38__, I found myself __39__ on a busy corner across the street from our hotel. Bicycles and motorbikes rushed in front of me. We had been advised to walk __40__ through the heavy traffic without looking right or left. Let them __41__ us. But tonight I was by myself and felt __42__ to face the stream of vehicles. __43__ I hesitated on the sidewalk, I felt a hand on my elbow and looked down to see the smile of my small beggar friend looking up at me. She nodded her head toward the street, __44__ that she would take me across. Together, we moved slowly into the chaos.

Then we moved on __45__ the sidewalk, where she pulled my face down to hers, kissed me on both cheeks, and then walked away, still smiling and waving back to me. I had not given her a single coin. We had __46__ something vastly more important—a warming of hearts in friendship.

Traveling in poorer nations, I have __47__ a variety of ways to deal with beggars. The most __48__ response of tourists faced with those extremely poor people is to __49__ them and focus their eyes elsewhere. I have seen people push away an outstretched hand in __50__. A few may hurriedly drop a few coins, and then make a quick getaway in hopes that another 20 ragged beggars won’t immediately appear on the __51__.

For many reasons, giving money is not the best __52__ to an outstretched hand. The greatest gift is time and respect. To look beggars in the eye and smile, thus acknowledging their existence, is a small thing. Putting your hand into another’s outstretched hand and grasping it __53__ for a moment is also a small thing. But these are important. Everyone needs __54__, to be seen as worthy of being __55__, to feel appreciated and loved. And I believe that everyone is worthy and worth knowing.

My favorite English teacher could draw humor out of the driest material. It wasn’t forced on us either. He took Samuel Johnson’s dictionary, Addison’s essays, and many other literary wonders from the eighteenth century and made them hilarious, even at eight o’clock in the morning. The thing that amazed me most was that the first time I read these works on my own some of them seemed dead, but the second time, after his explanation, I couldn’t believe that I hadn’t seen the humor. The stories and poems and plays were suddenly filled with allusions(典故) and irony and hilarious moments. I learned more from him than from any other teacher.

My least favorite English teacher also made people laugh. Some students found him to be wonderfully funny. Many others did not. He assigned journals over a six week period, to be written in every day. At the end of the six weeks I had a notebook full of bits and pieces about my ideas, short stories, reactions to what we had read, and so on. Our teacher announced that we would be grading each other’s journals. Mine was passed to Joe, that class clown, who always behaved in a funny or silly way. He saw it fit to make joke of and said, “This writing isn’t fit to line the bottom of a birdcage.” Our teacher laughed at that funny remark. It hurt me so much that the anger from it has driven my writing and teaching ever since.

So what makes the difference? Humor is one of the most powerful tools teachers or writers have. It can build up students and classes and make them excited about literature and writing, or it can tear them apart. It is true that humor is either productive or counter-productive and self-defeating.

59. The passage mainly discusses _____.

A. teaching         B. literature      C. humor        D. knowledge

60. The underlined word “hilarious” in Paragraph 1 probably means _____.

A. funny       B. tiring           C. inspiring        D. brilliant

61. With his favorite English teacher, the writer found it most amazing that _____.

A. his teacher was very learned

B. his teacher was very humorous

C. the works by Johnson and Addison were very humorous

D. few were able to find humor in works by Johnson and others

62. The English teacher the writer disliked most _____.

A. was not able to make students laugh B. hurt his students’ feelings

C. didn’t let his students do the grading D. had no sense of humor

C

Does money buy happiness? Not! Ah, but would a little more money make us a little happier? Many of us smirk(傻笑,假笑) and nod. There is, we believe, some connection between financial fitness and emotional fulfillment. Three in four American college students—nearly double the 1970 proportion— now consider it “very important” or “essential” that they become “very well off financially”. Money matters.

But a surprising fact of life is that in countries where nearly everyone can afford life’s necessities, increasing wealth matters surprisingly little. The connection between income and happiness is “surprisingly weak,” observed University of Michigan researcher Ronald Inglehart in one 16-nation study of 170,000 people. Once comfortable, more money provides diminishing returns(报酬递减). The second piece of pie, or the second $100,000, never tastes as good as the first. Even lottery winners and the Forbes’ 100 wealthiest Americans surveyed by University of Illinois psychologist Ed Diener have expressed only slightly greater happiness than the average American. Making it big brings temporary joy. But in the long run wealth is like health: its complete absence can create suffering, but having it doesn’t guarantee happiness. Happiness seems less a matter of getting what we want than of wanting what we have.

Has our happiness, however, floated upward with the rising economic tide? Are we happier today than in 1940s, when two out of five homes lacked a shower or tub? Actually, we are not. Since 1957, the number of Americans who say they are “very happy” has declined from 35 to 32 percent. Meanwhile, the divorce rate has doubled, the teen suicide(自杀) rate has increased nearly three times, the violent crime rate has gone up nearly four times, and depression has mushroomed. Economic growth has provided no boost to human morale. When it comes to psychological well being, it is not the economy.

I call this soaring wealth and shrinking spirit “the American paradox.” More than ever, we have big houses and broken homes, high incomes and low confidence, secured rights and reduced civility. We are good at making a living but often fail at making a life. We celebrate our prosperity(繁荣) but long for a purpose. We treasure our freedoms but long for connection. In an age of plenty, we feel spiritual hunger. 

63. Which of the following statements best expresses the author’s view?

A. The more money we earn, the less returns we have.

B. The more money we earn, the happier we would be.

C. In the long run, money cannot guarantee happiness.

D. In the long run, happiness grows with economy.

64.“The second $100,000 never tastes as good as the first” because _____.

A. it is not so fresh as the first $100,000

B. it is not so important as the first $100,000

C. profit brought by it is less than that from the first $100,000

D. happiness brought by it is less than that from the first $100,000

65.According to the passage, people do well in making a living but don’t _____.

A. have any primary aimB. know how to spend money

C. know how to enjoy life  D. keep in touch with other people

66.The things that happened after 1957 are given to show that _____.

A. people’s spiritual needs cannot be fulfilled by wealth

B. family problems become more and more serious

C. young people are not happy about their life

D. social crimes have increased significantly

D

Science Fiction

The science fiction type of entertainment is considered by most to be fathered by Jules Verne (A Journey to the Center of the Earth and Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea) and H. G. Wells (The Time Machine and The War of the Worlds). Sci-Fi, as it is commonly shortened, is a fictional story in which science and technology have a significant influence on the characters and plot. Many such works are guesswork about what the future holds and how scientific findings and technological advances will shape humankind.

Writing in the late 1800s, Jules Verne was remarkably successful in his 10 guesses about future technologies of air conditioning, automobiles, the Internet, television, and underwater, air, and space travel. Unbelievably, of all places from which to choose, Jules Verne guessed Tampa, Florida, USA as the launching site of the first project to the Moon, which was only 200 kilometers away from the actual 1969 location at Cape Canaveral, Florida.

One of the best-known science fiction books is Nineteen Eighty-Four by George Orwell. Published in 1949, it was not meant as a prediction, but as a warning: Orwell was describing what he saw as the outcome of the ideas, trends, and emerging technologies of his time. Many invented terms from this novel have become common in everyday use, such as “big brother” and “doublethink”. Even the author’s name has been made into an adjective—Orwellian—and has become a warning descriptor for situations where privacy is lost and the individual becomes sacrifice under a totalitarian(极权主义) government. Nineteen Eighty-Four was translated into sixty-five languages within five years of its publication, setting a record that still stands.

What helps bring science fiction into being is usually a new discovery or innovation. The author creates an analysis of the potential influence and consequences and then wraps it in a pleasant story. For example, the beginning of space exploration was followed a few years later by the Star Trek television program and movie series. Advances in genetics(遗传学) cause fantasies of the end of disease, horrors of eugenics(优生学), and thrillers where creatures disappearing long ago are brought back to life. The science fiction author’s self-determined role is that of field glasses for humanity—searching the world of future possibilities upon the road which we are traveling. 

67. What can science fiction offer to people?

A. A forecast of how a new discovery could influence mankind.

B. A thoughtful look at the present drawbacks of technology.

C. An analysis of why a new technology could be used to harm human.

D. A thoughtful look at the past and what brought us to this point in history.

68. Which of the following best summarizes the description of Nineteen Eighty-Four?

A. A prediction of future technologies.B. A warning of cruel and unfair ruling.

C. The consequence of scientific findings. D. An imaginary perfect world of freedom.

69. From the passage we can learn that _____.

A. Nineteen Eighty-Four adopted some popular terms

B. H.G. Wells predicted the Internet in the late 1800s

C. Cape Canaveral was mentioned in Jules Verne’s fiction

D. Star Trek movie series were based on space exploration

70. According to the author, what is the role of science fiction in society?

A. A moral compass.     B. A reference of technology.

C. A record of science development.D. A consideration of possibilities.

 

第二节(共5小题;每小题2分,共10分)

    根据短文内容,从短文后的七个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。

Stay on the brighter side of life

One very important component of optimism is gratitude or feeling grateful. In fact, there is a strong connection between a grateful attitude and a heightened sense of well-being. Appreciate all the positives in your life by starting a gratitude journal in order to remember what you’re grateful for. ___71___

Feeling down? Instead of feeling sorry for yourself waiting for the universe to throw you a bone, try acting like you’re happy—even if you aren’t. A sincere smile and a forced smile will cause the same chemical reactions in your brain, so you can actually fool your mind into feeling better by making it react chemically as if things were going well. ___72___ Reassure yourself that everything is good— even if you don’t feel it.

“___73___ If you’re stuck in traffic, then everything else must be going horribly too,” says Anne Parker, a wellness counselor. By blowing negative events out of proportion, you’re setting yourself up for feeling down all day. Instead, acknowledge that you’re stuck in traffic, but also bring to mind something good, like the beautiful scenery outside the window. That way, you’ll get in the habit of forbidding negative circumstances from blanketing your whole day.

Swearing to lose 20 pounds or to run a marathon seems like goals leading to happiness, but they take time to achieve. ___74___ You may even end up admitting that you have been defeated. However, if you focus on the small milestones that occur along the way, you will feel positive about your progress, which will give you the strength to keep going.

___75___ Try making someone else’s day better. A report by United Healthcare and Volunteer Match found that volunteers are 72% more likely to characterize themselves as optimistic compared with non-volunteers. Plus, 89% of volunteers say that volunteering has improved their sense of well-being, and 92% say that it enriches their sense of purpose in life. 

 

A. Try to help someone in need.

B. Want to give your attitude a lift?

C. People tend to think in an either-or way.

D. Act in an optimistic way—smile, laugh, tell a joke.

E. You’ll fail to appreciate more important things in your life.

F. By focusing on not having accomplished them yet, you will start to feel down on yourself.

G. By remembering the pleasant things in your life, you can actually turn a negative attitude around.
