    In 1880, the traveller and journalist Lafcadio Hearn was living in New Orleans and writing for a couple of local papers, Daily City Item and Times­Democrat. Hearn sensed that New Orleans exists in a state of insidious disintegration(蜕变)—“crumbling into ashes”—thanks to its dangerous geography and its “frauds and maladministrations.” And yet, Hearn wrote to a friend, It is better to live here in sackcloth and ashes than to own the whole state of Ohio.” New Orleanians have always resembled New Yorkers; they tend to share the sense that to live anywhere else would lead inevitably to a stupid and pitiable existence beyond the bounds of understanding.

    In part, the spirit of New Orleans is rooted in the city's below­sea­level unsteadiness, the condition of looking outand even upat the water all around you, the knowledge that water saturates(浸透) the ground you stand on. Katrina, the fierce hurricane that destroyed the Gulf Coast on August 29, 2005, tested the self­possession of every citizen who survived it. More than eighteen hundred people did not survive it, and hundreds of thousands lost their homes. The storm and the terrible flooding that followed—a natural disaster worsened by a range of man­made disasters—revealed much that had been fragile, or rotten, in Hearn's time and grew worse with every decade: shabby civil engineering; corrupt and inefficient government institutions; and it turned out that an Administration in Washington witnessed for days a city drowning—a largely black city drowning—and reacted with annoying indifference. And yet, in the face of abandonmentin hospitals, on rooftops, on highway overpassesthe residents of New Orleans behaved with resilience(不折不挠). Rebecca Solnit, an acute observer of Katrina and its aftermath, has written, The belief that a Hobbesian war of all­against­all had broken loose justified treating the place as a crime zone or even an unfriendly country rather than a place in which grandmothers and children were trapped in frightful conditions, desperately in need of food, water, shelter and medical attention.

    Alec Soth, a photographer who lives in Minneapolis and travels the Midwest and the South with the energy of a latter­day Walker Evans, did not join the artists who came to New Orleans a decade ago to capture what he calls the eye candy of rot and ruin. Instead, he waited, preferring to capture the city of water ten years later, a city in a state of both persistent suffering and persistent renewal. Soth shows us the upsetting image of a freestanding column—all that is left of a house in the hard­hit Lower Ninth Ward—but he moves toward a vision of promise, a lonely figure at his leisure, staring into the waters of today's New Orleans.

    31. New Orleanians are similar to New Yorkers in that________.

    A. they refuse to leave their homeland  B. they exist in insidious disintegration

    C. they possess dangerous geography  D. they have a sense of boring existence

    32. What can we know from the hurricane Katrina and its damaging consequences?

    A. A range of man­made disasters led to the fierce hurricane.

    B. The hurricane happened following a terrible flooding.

    C. The American government failed to provide help and support.

    D. The residents of New Orleans have a deep hatred for governors.

    33. Why did Alec Soth refuse to join other artists to take photos of New Orleans a decade ago?

    A. He also treated New Orleans as a crime zone.

    B. He had high expectations of the future of New Orleans.

    C. He couldn't put up with the suffering the hurricane caused.

    D. He was traveling the Midwest and the South with Walker Evans.

    In 1854, Louis Pasteur assumed the duties of a professor at a university in France. Meanwhile, he conducted studies to find out what caused milk and other drinks containing alcohol to become sour. His breakthrough came when he discovered that the souring was caused by bacteria in the liquid. He then developed a process through which the bacteria could be removed by boiling the liquid and then cooling it. This method, called pasteurization in his honor, became widespread.

    At that time, silk producers were suffering because the eggs of the worms that made the silk were dying from an unknown disease. Pasteur discovered the bacteria that were killing the eggs and developed a method to kill the germs.

    Pasteur next turned his attention to rabies, a deadly disease that animals transferred to humans. Many people thought Pasteur was wasting his time, but Pasteur ignored their doubts and continued his efforts to find a cure for rabies. One of his patients was a sick boy, whose mother had turned to Pasteur for help. Pasteur told the mother that he had invented a vaccine that was strong enough to kill the invisible enemy. He said that he would use a needle to inject the vaccine into the boy. The vaccine would then fight the germs, just like a soldier fights in a war.

    That boy was the first person to receive the vaccine, and the treatment was a success. After that, no one had to be afraid of rabies anymore. People who had laughed at him before, now respected him. Pasteur had believed in himself and had not given up. He had won the battle with the enemy.

    21. Pasteur helped the ________ industry with the method named after him.

       A. construction                           B. energy                           C. beer                       D. service

    22. Why does Pasteur compare his rabies treatment with soldiers?

       A. To encourage people to pity the man.                      

    B. To imply that the vaccine was strong.

       C. To express his feelings about wars.                         

    D. To show that the germs could be useful.

    23. What does the passage mainly talk about?

       A. The teaching techniques that Pasteur employed.

       B. Pasteur’s interest in a key manufacturing process.

       C. Pasteur’s psychological issues and their treatment.

       D. The advances that Pasteur achieved in his field.

     A Kickstarter launched Friday will allow interested parties to set up a camera and pet toys in their home for anyone to play with their pets remotely. Its called the ipet Companion, an Internet-connected camera and device that streams video online and allows basic commands from people watching. They can move the camera, look at their pet and press a button to swing a toy around.

     Obviously, demand is strong. The Kickstarter proved so popular that Scott Harris, iPet Companions founder, said that thousands of people started asking for it.

     The reason why people keep talking about this is the emotional(情感的) connection they have from a thousand miles away. If you want, you can enter a queue to move the camera and play with the pets. Each room has toys that are hooked(钩住) into Internet-connected devices, and you can move them by pressing a button.

    But theres sort of a problem: Pets get bored easily. Young pets will stay more interested than adult pets, but finally even a baby pet will get bored, too. To stop that from happening, youd better limit the pets access(接近) to the boys and change the place where theyre located in the room.

    Harris understands this and said you can plug anything into that adapter(适配器) ---toys that you can get on your own. And thats where the iPet Companion really gets interesting. Harris explained that the device is actually sort of a Trojan horse to bring the Internet of things to more homes. You dont really have to use it for pets. The adapter could be used for any device with an electrical plug---a sprinkler, say, that youd be able to activate to water your grass.

    Our whole goal, our whole purpose is to let anyone control any physical object that they want to while they travel anywhere in the woorld, Harris said.

    12.  What does the underlined word remotely in Paragragh 1 probably mean?

    A.      far away.

    B.      For free.

    C.      With pity.

    D.     Out of control.

    13.  Many people are interested in iPet Companion because______________.

    A.      it can be used to kill time

    B.      it is easy to control online

    C.      it can meet all of their demands

    D.     they can show their love for faraway pets by using it

    14.  Why do the pets stop playing the toys soon?

    A.      Pets are not clever enough to play the toys.

    B.      They dont receive rewards from the games.

    C.      Toys are played with too often at the same place.

    D.     Adult pets prevent young ones from playing the games.       

    15.  What can we infer from what Scott Harris said?

    A.      iPet Companion is only a kind of toy.

    B.      Kickstarter can be used in many other ways.

    C.      iPet Companion can actually be turned into a toy horse.

    D.     iPet Companion can look after pets while their owners are away.

    In 1974, when I was 18,1 took up hang-gliding and paragliding. Today I'm a professional hang-glide instructor, but at the time I was one of only about a dozen in the country doing it. I was lucky to survive: the sport was so new and dangerous then. In 1997 I heard about the Birdman competition, in which participants(参与者) compete to fly the furthest distance; I thought it sounded like fun. I felt that a hang-glider, which usually travels around 90 metres, could go as far as 100 metres one day. The first leap was frightening: a huge crosswind meant I had to take off at almost 90 degrees and it was difficult to manage. But I came back, and now participate in the various Birdman competitions that take place across the country, attracting serious and silly competitors alike .

    It's taken 17 years to break the 100 metre barrier, and I was the first to do it. When I broke the world record in 2014, I took off from Worthing pier(码头) and didn't touch down for 20 seconds. It was the longest ever flight from a pier, carrying me 159.8 metres until I touched the water. Twenty seconds is a long time when you're doing 45 miles an hour, flying over the waves. Though I still hold the distance record, I didn't Win the 2015 Birdman competition. This past year has been more difficult. I'm nearly 60 now. Competitors have always joked about how they'll probably be throwing me off the pier. I had operations on my knees, and then three weeks before this years competition at Bognor Regis, I had a mild heart attack. I managed to compete again, but I didn't feel right. My wife was obviously very concerned, but I keep fit. As long as I don't overwork myself; and prepare properly for the event, there's no reason I can't do it for the next 12, 13 years. Next year, I'm going to win it again.

    8.   The passage mainly talks about the writer's        .

    A.    enthusiasm about a sport                           B.    knowledge about hang-gliding

    C.    difficulties in his career                               D.   records in Birdman competitions

    9.    What can be learned about hang-gliding in 1974?

    A.    It was quite popular.                             B.    It was full of risks.

        C.   It had a record of 100 meters.                    D.   It had about 12 instructors.

    10.        The writer failed to win the competition in 2015 because he        .

    A.   didn't take it seriously enough             B.    was too proud of his record

        C.   was thrown off the pier by others                D.    was in a poor physical condition

    11. Which of the following best describes the writer?

    A.    Considerate.    B.    Humorous.        C.    Determined.      D.   Patent

    Forget about the “post-1995 generation”. Young people born in 1995 or later have another name in English—Generation Z.

    Now entering adulthood and soon to join the workforce, Generation Z grew up in a special period of time—a time in which technology developed fast, social changes happened every day, the internet became universal and, sadly, so did global terrorism.

    It is believed that Generation Z is the generation that is going to shape our future, which is why policy makers, sociologists and company leaders are trying their best to understand these young people.

    So, what are Gen Z-ers really like?

    Most people agree that the single biggest difference between Gen Z and other generations is how connected they are. This is a group of people who have been familiar with social media as soon as they were born. Social media has changed the way Gen Z-ers communicate with each other and how they get and understand information.

    “We are the first true digital natives. I can almost create a document, edit it, post a photo on Instagram and talk on the phone, all at the same time,” said Hannah Payne, an 18-year-old student at UCLA, according to The New York Times. “Generation Z takes in information very fast and loses interest just as fast.”

    It may be true that Generation Z-ers have a shorter attention span (注意力持续时间) than a goldfish, but since they grew up among social changes, they are more active in politics. According to the British Election Study, 58 percent of 18-to-24-year-old voted in the 2015 general election in the UK, a big jump from 38 percent in 2005.

    Generation Z-ers are also culture creators. “Growing up with the internet has freed this generation from traditional cultural expression.” Wrote Grace Masback, a Huffington Post blogger and a Gen Z-er herself. According to Masback, these young people are no longer willing to let their creativity be limited by their parents of traditional rules. They watch videos and read news online instead of on TV, and they share their experiences on social media.

    “We decide what kind of content we want to experience and choose how we experience it,” wrote Masback.

    13. Which is TRUE about Gen Z-ers, according to the article?

    A. Face-to-face communication is challenging for them.

    B. Often doing many things at the same time affects their efficiency.

    C. They don’t bother to think about the information they take in carefully.

    D. They show more interest in politics than in other fields.

    14. What can we infer from the last two paragraphs?

    A. Gen Z-ers enjoy great freedom to express themselves.

    B. Gen Z-ers enjoy teaching their parents about new cultural trends.

    C. Gen Z-ers are against traditional culture.

    D. Gen Z-ers are unwilling to obey their parents.

    15. Which word can best describe the author’s attitude towards Generation Z?

    A. Worried    B. Critical    C. Appreciative    D. Neutral(中立的)

    In its early history, Chicago had floods frequently, especially in the spring, making the streets so muddy that people, horses, and carts got stuck. An old joke that was popular at the time went something like this: A man is stuck up to his waist in a muddy Chicago street. Asked if he needs help, he replies, "No, thanks. I've got a good horse under me."

    The city planner decided to build an underground drainage (排水) system, but there simply wasn't enough difference between the height of the ground level and the water level. The only two options were to lower the Chicago River or raise the city.

    An engineer named Ellis Chesbrough convinced the city that it had no choice but to build the pipes above ground and then cover them with dirt. This raised the level of the city's streets by as much as 12 feet.

    This of course created a new problem: dirt practically buried the first floors of every building in Chicago. Building owners were faced with a choice: either change the first floors of their buildings into basements, and the second stories into main floors, or hoist the entire buildings to meet the new street level. Small wood-frame buildings could be lifted fairly easily. But what about large, heavy structures like Tremont Hotel, which was a six-story brick building?

    That's where George Pullman came in. He had developed some house-moving skills successfully. To lift a big structure like the Tremont Hotel, Pullman would place thousands of jackscrews (螺旋千斤顶) beneath the building's foundation. One man was assigned to operate each section of roughly 10 jackscrews. At Pullman's sign each man turned his jackscrew the same amount at the same time, thereby raising the building slowly and evenly. Astonishingly, the Tremont Hotel stay open during the entire operation, and many of its guests didn't even notice anything was happening. Some people like to say that every problem has a solution. But in Chicago's early history, every engineering solution seemed to create a new problem. Now that Chicago's waste water was draining efficiently into the Chicago River, the city's next step was to clean the polluted river.

    5. The author mentions the joke to show ______.

    A. horses were fairly useful in Chicago

    B. Chicago's streets were extremely muddy

    C. Chicago was very dangerous in the spring

    D. the Chicago people were particularly humorous

    6. The city planners were convinced by Ellis Chesbrough to_______.

    A. get rid of the street dirt

    B. lower the Chicago River

    C. fight against heavy floods

    D. build the pipes above ground

    7. What can we conclude about the moving operation of the Tremont Hotel?

    A. It went on smoothly as intended.

    B. It interrupted the business of the hotel.

    C. It involved Pullman turning ten jackscrews.

    D. It separated the building from its foundation.

    8. The passage is mainly about the early Chicago's ______.

    A. popular life styles and their influences

    B. environmental disasters and their causes

    C. engineering problems and their solutions

    D. successful businessmen and their achievements

    In ancient Egypt, the pharaoh(法老) treated the message runner like a prince when he arrived at the palace, if he brought good news. However, if the exhausted runner had the misfortune to bring the pharaoh unhappy news, his head was cut off.

        Shades of that spirit spread over today’s conversations. Once a friend and I packed up some peanut butter and sandwiches for an outing. As we walked light-heartedly out of the door, picnic basket in hand, a smiling neighbor looked up at the sky and said, “Oh boy, bad day for a picnic. The weatherman says it’s going to rain.” I wanted to strike him on the face with the peanut butter and sandwiches. Not for his stupid weather report, but for his smile.

        Several months ago I was racing to catch a bus. As I breathlessly put my handful of cash across the Greyhound counter, the sales agent said with a broad smile, “Oh, that bus left five minutes ago.” Dreams of head cutting!

        It’s not the news that makes someone angry. It’s the unsympathetic attitude with which it’s delivered(传送). Everyone must give bad news from time to time, and winning professionals do it with the proper attitude. A doctor advising a patient that she needs an operation does it in a caring way. A boss informing an employee he didn’t get the job takes on a sympathetic tone. Big winners knowwhen delivering any bad news, they should share the feeling of the receiver.

        Unfortunately, many people are not aware of this. When you’re tired from a long flight, has a hotel clerk cheerfully said that your room isn’t ready yetWhen you had your heart set on the toast beef, has your waiter merrily told you that he just served the last piece? It makes you as a traveler or diner want to land your fist right on their unsympathetic faces.

    Had my neighbor told me of the upcoming rainstorm with sympathy, I would have appreciated his warning. Had the Greyhound salesclerk sympathetically informed me that my bus had already left, I probably would have said, “Oh, that’s all right. I’ll catch the next one.” Big winners, when they bear bad news, deliver bombs with the emotion the bombarded(被轰炸的)person is sure to have.

      I have no memory of December 27.2015;but I can tell you this much ̶̶̶̶̶̶̶̶ ̶ it was the day my five-year-old son,Dane,saved my life.All the practicing Dane and I had done came together that day.Teaching him to learn our home address,how to use the phone,how to dial 911,and how to answer the questions a 911 operator might ask him if he did have to call ̶̶ ̶ paid off.

      At about 3:30 that afternoon,I wasn’t felling well and had been lying on the sofa.At some point,I went to the bathroom and it was there that I fell down and went unconsciousness.When I fell,my face hit the floor,causing two of my teeth to break off.And my body blocked the door.

      Dane must have heard me fall,because he came to the bathroom and called out to me.When I did not answer him,he looked in through a gap in the door and saw the blood from my injured mouth.That’s when his “training” kicked in.First,Dane phoned my mother ̶ ̶ his grandma ̶ ̶ and when Grandma didn’t answer the phone,he called 911.Dane remained calm,stayed on the line and told the operator what had happened and where we lived.He turned on the outside light and opened the door for police and paramedics(医务人员),and then led them to me.

      Recently,emergency responders in Taber,the town where we live,honored Dane at his school during an assembly(集会) of his kindergarten classmates and other students.The Taber Police Service praised my son and give him a certificate(证书) in recognition of his “knowing exactly what to do in an emergency situation.”

      Dane saved my life,and he is my angel!If I had not taught my son how to react if there was ever an emergency in our home,I am quite certain that I would not be alive now.I strongly suggest other parents understand the life-and -death importance of taking the time to teach their kids these skills,too.Children can learn these things at a very young age.I know this first-hand,as Dane was three years old when I started teaching him.

           It was in the Victorian Era(维多利亚时期) that the novel became the leading form of literature in English. Most writers were more concerned to meet the tastes of the middle class. The best known works of the period included the works of Charles Dickens and the Bronté sisters and others.

         Charles Dickens came on the literary scene in the 1830s. Dickens wrote vividly about London life and the struggles of the poor. Most of his works were written in a very humorous style, which was popular with readers of all classes.

         The Bronté sisters were English writers of the 1840s and 1850s. They began to write from early childhood. In 1846 they published the first book at their own expense as poets; however, their book attracted little attention, selling only two copies. Then the sisters turned to writing novels, each producing a novel in the following year.

          An interest in rural matters and the changing social and economic situation of the countryside may be seen in the novels of Thomas Hardy and a number of others.

         Literature for children developed as a single style. Some works became wellknown, such as those of Lewis Carroll and Edward Lear. Adventure novels were written for adults but are now generally grouped in the list for children. Helen Beatrix Potter was an English author at the end of the Victorian Era, best known for her children's books, which featured animal characters. In her thirties, Potter published the highly successful children's book The Tale of Peter Rabbit in 1902.

    24What can we know about Charles Dickens from the text?

    A. He described the struggles of the poor in London.

    C. He focused on changing social and economic situation of the countryside.

    D. He published the highly successful children's book.

    25Which is TRUE about the Bronté sisters?

    A. They were English writers of the 1830s.

    B. They paid to have their first book published.

    C. They began their writing from adulthood.

    D. Their first book was successful.

    26The author states in the last paragraph that________

    A. society changed rapidly in the Victorian Era

    B. Thomas Hardy was not as famous as Lewis Carroll

    C. Edward Lear was famous for writing about animals

    D. adventure novels were not written for children at first

    As early as the mid-18th century, some people began raising doubts about Marco Polo’s travels. In 1995, historian Frances Wood argued in her book Did Marco Polo Go to China? that the famous explorer from Venice never made it to pass the Black Sea. She noted that his travel journal left out the Great Wall of China, chopsticks and tea drinking among other details.

    Furthermore, Chinese documents from Polo’s day made no mention of the explorer and his men. Last year, a team of Italian researchers became the latest to challenge Polo’s accounts. They said that evidence didn’t support his description of Kublai Khan’s Japanese invasions (侵略).

    Now, however, research by Hans Ulrich Vogel of Germany’s Tubingen University might help prove Marco Polo was true. In a new book Marco Polo Was in Chinathe professor of Chinese history tries to prove that Marco Polo spoke the truth. He suggests, for example, that Polo didn’t include the Great Wall in his book because it only achieved its great importance in the Ming Dynasty several hundred years later. Vogel further explains that Chinese records from the 13th and 14th centuries avoided setting down visits from Westerners.

    Historians before him have touched on these issues. But Vogel also relies on another evidence: the explorer’s very detailed descriptions of currency and salt production in the Yuan Dynasty. According to Vogel, Polo documented these aspects of Mongol Chinese culture in greater detail than any other of his time. This is a hint that Polo relied on his own powers of observation.

    Will we ever know whether Marco Polo traveled to China? Perhaps not, but the consequences of his real or fictional journey are still felt across the globe. One reader of The travels of Marco Polo was Christopher Columbus, who stepped upon the New World while following his idol’s footsteps.

    33. France Wood doubted Marco Polo’s travel’s to China because his description _______.

    A. missed some important culture of China

    B. covered so much about traders’ life

    C. was full of obvious mistakes

    D. seemed less detailed

    34. Vogel’s trust on Marco Polo is based on the argument that _______.

    a. The Great Wall didn’ t gain its importance then

    b. Records in the Yuan Dynasty mentioned Polo

    c. Polo mentioned the currency and salt

    d. Polo’s other works are believable

    e. Polo recorded what he saw in great detail

    A. a, b, d           B. a, c, d      C. a, e             D. bc

        Long ago a Native American chief named Shenandoah lived with his tribes(部落) in what is now the state of Virginia. Little is known about Shenandoah, but in some way, the soft sound of his name was given to a river. The Shenandoah River still flows in a deep valley between the Allegheny and Blue Ridge Mountains, just as it did when Chief Shenandoah lived. It is a slow moving river, soft and as beautiful as its name. Some word experts who believe the word “Shenandoah” means “spruce river” because the waters of the river run through great forests of spruce trees(云杉).And this explanation could be correct.

        However, there is an old Native American story which is far more beautiful than that of the experts. Centuries before Europeans came to the New World, there was a great lake of blue water hidden in the mountains of Virginia. For hundreds of years, Native American tribes lived near this lake, feeding on the fish from its clean waters. The Native Americans often climbed up the mountains and camped there during their long hunts for food. In the evenings they sat near their camp and looked down at the beautiful lake.

        On a clear, starry night you could see thousands of stars shining and dancing on the water below. The Native Americans loved this lake, and because they could see the stars in it, they called the lake, “Clear Daughter of the Stars.”In their language, the word for this was “Shenandoah.”

        One day the lake started to disappear. Its water ran out of the valley, through a break in the mountain side. The waters ran on and on until they joined another river known as the Potomac. At last, the lake was gone. In its place was only a river. It is the beautiful Shenandoah River today.

        However, the word Shenandoah becomes well known to people because someone wrote a song about it some years ago.“Shenandoah” is perhaps one of America’s most recognizable folk songs. Some say the song refers to the river. Others say it is about the daughter of Chief Shenandoah. Regardless of what the song is about, "Shenandoah" remains an American classic.“O Shenandoah, I love your daughter, Away you rolling river; O Shenandoah, I love your daughter, Away I'm bound to go, 'Cross the wide Missouri …”

    21. According to the text, “ Shenandoah” may be the following EXCEPT______. 

       A. the Potomac                               B. “spruce river”

       C. “Clear Daughter of the Stars”               D. an American chief’s name

    22. “ Shenandoah” is familiar to Americans mostly because of ______.

       A. pure and refreshing water                     B. an American classic song  

       C.a great historical character                  D. the mysterious disappearance of a lake

    23. The most suitable title of the passage is ______.

       A. An American Chief’s Romantic Tale      B. Shenandoah and Its Native American Roots

       C. The Mystery of a Missing Lake          D. A Beautiful American Song

         English is the most widely used language in the history of our planet. One in every seven human beings can speak it. More than half of the world’s books and three quarters of international mail are in English. Of all languages, English has the largest vocabulary — perhaps as many as two million words.

          However, let’s face it: English is a crazy language. There is no egg in an eggplant, neither pine nor apple in a pineapple and no ham in a hamburger. Sweet-meats are candy, while sweetbreads, which aren’t sweet, are meat.

          We take English for granted. But when we explore its paradoxes (探讨它的矛盾), we find that quicksand can work slowly, boxing rings are square,  public bathrooms have no baths in them.

          And why is it that a writer writes, but fingers don’t fing, grocers don’t groce, and hammers don’t ham? If the plural of tooth is teeth, shouldn’t the plural of booth be beeth? One goose, two geese — so one moose, two meese?

          How can a slim chance and a fat chance be the same, while a wise man and a wise guy are opposites? How can overlook and oversee be opposites, while quite a lot and quite a few are alike? How can the weather be hot as hell one day and cold as hell the next?

          English was invented by people, not computers, and it reflects (反映) the creativity of human beings. That’s why, when stars are out, they are visible (能看见的); but when the lights are out, they are invisible. And why, when I wind up my watch, I start it; but when I wind up this essay, I end it.

    47. According to the passage ______.

      A. sweet-meats and sweetbreads are different things

      B. there should be egg in an eggplant

      C. pineapples are the apples on the pine tree

      D. boxing rings should be round

    48. Which of the following is the correct plural?

      A. Beeth.    B. Tooth.        C. Meese.     D. Geese. 

    49. Which of the following includes two items which have the similar meaning?

      A. A wise man and a wise guy.            B. Overlook and oversee.  

      C. Quite a lot and quite a few.          D. Hot as hell and cold as hell.

    50. The underlined words “wind up” in the last paragraph probably mean “______”.

      A. blow      B. finish        C. get hurt    D. roll up

    TIME is an American weekly news magazine published in New York City. It was created in 1923 by Briton Hadden and Henry Luce, making it the first weekly news magazine in the US. Hadden was considered carefree, liked to tease Luce and saw TIME as important but also fun. That accounted for its heavy coverage of celebrities(including politicians), the entertainment industry, and pop culture—criticized as too light for serious news.

    It tells the news through people, and for many decades, the magazine’s cover depicted a single person. On Hadden’s death in 1929, Luce became the most important man at TIME and a major figure in the history of 20th-century media.

    TIME is also known for its signature red border, first introduced in 1927. It has only changed four times since then. The issue released shortly after the September 11 attacks on the United States featured a black border to symbolize mourning. However, this edition was a special “extra” edition published quickly for the breaking news of the event; the next regularly scheduled issue contained the red border. Additionally, the April 28, 2008 Earth Day issue, dedicated to environmental issues, contained a green border. The next change in border was in the September 19, 2011 issue, commemorating the 10th anniversary of the September 11 attacks with a metallic silver border. The most recent change(again with a silver border) was in the December 31, 2012 issue, noting Barack Obama’s selection as Man of the Year.

    TIME has a division magazine, TIME FOR KIDS(TFK), which is especially published for children and is mainly distributed in classrooms. TFK contains some national news, a “Cartoon of the Week”, and a variety of articles concerning popular culture that the younger U.S. citizens are interested in. All the stories in TFK are written by young reporters.

    In some advertising campaigns, the magazine has suggested that the letters TIME stand for “The International Magazine of Events”.

    33.Why did some people dislike TIME in the beginning?

      A. It had kept its cover the same since the 1920s.

      B. It didn’t have a serious tone for important events.

      C. It didn’t report important events quickly enough.

      D. Henry Luce was in charge of the magazine for too long.

    34.Why did TIME change its red border for the first time?

      A. To remember the 10th anniversary of an attack.

      B. To remind readers to protect the environment.

      C. To show great sadness about the deaths.

      D. To call on readers to vote for Obama.

    35.What do we know about TFK?

      A. It has young reporters writing articles.

      B. It has a division magazine called TIME.

      C. It is designed for kids and teachers.

      D. It mainly contains popular culture.

    In 1880, fourteen-year-old Matthew Henson loved to hear sailors tell tales of their exciting lives at sea. The travel, the adventure, the danger, and the steady pay were all attracting young Henson. One day, he found a job as a cabin boy on a beautiful ship called the Katie Hinds. For the next five years, Henson sailed around the world. With the help of the ship’s captain and other members of the crew, Henson learned mathematics, navigation, history, geography, and many other subjects. By the time he left the Katie Hinds in 1885, Henson was well educated and had become an excellent seaman.

    Unable to find work anywhere else, Henson took a job in a hat shop in Washington, D.C. One day in 1887, a man came in to buy a hat. The man, Robert Peary, asked the owner if he knew anyone with experience at sea. Peary would soon travel to South America for the U.S. government. He needed experienced men to accompany him. The shop owner knew about his young employee’s skills and experience on ocean journeys, so he introduced Peary to Henson.

    Using his map-reading and sailing skills, Henson proved himself to be a worthy and smart seaman. Peary soon made Henson his assistant(助理), and they became close friends. One day Peary told Henson about his real dream: to be the first man to stand on “the top of the world” at the North Pole. He asked Henson to help him make his dream come true. Over the next five years, the two explorers made two trips together to the Arctic. However, they were not able to reach the pole either time. The cold, wind, and ice were worse than either of them had ever imagined.

    In 1908, Peary and Henson were ready to make their final attempt at reaching the North Pole. Both men were over forty years old. The years of hardship in the arctic cold had made them suffer a lot. This would be their last chance. With four Inuit(因纽特)guides, they made a mad rush straight across the ice toward the pole. Peary’s feet were injured and he had to be pulled on a dogsled. In April 1909, Henson’s instruments showed they were standing at the North Pole. Together Henson and Peary planted the American flag in the snow.

    In later years, Robert Peary and Henson were greatly honored for their achievements. Today, the two friends and fellow explorers lie in heroes’ graves not far apart in the Arlington National Cemetery.

    8. In paragraph1, the author shows how Henson became ________.

    A. a wonderful seaman

    B. an educated captain

    C. a good shop assistant

    D. a successful learner

    9. Paragraph 2 mainly tells us ________.

    A. why Matthew Henson went to the hat shop

    B. how Matthew Henson met Robert Peary

    C. why Matthew Henson stopped working on the Katie Hinds

    D. how Robert Peary knew Matthew Henson had sea experience

    10. The following statements are TRUE except ________.

    A. Henson proved himself a better seaman than Peary

    B. Peary wanted Henson to help him realize his dream

    C. Before their final attempt, they made two trips together

    D. After they died, they were highly respected by people

    11. The story between Henson and Peary could best be compared to ________.

    A. treasure hunters looking for fortunes

    B. sailors seeking power over others

    C. soldiers fighting for their freedom

    D. fighters exploring an unknown land

    One of my first memories as a child in the 1950s was a discussion I had with my brother in our tiny bedroom in the family house in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.

    We had heard in school about a planet called Pluto. It was the farthest, coldest, and darkest thing a child could imagine. We guessed how long it would take to die if we stood on the surface of such a frozen place wearing only the clothes we had on. We tried to figure out how much colder Pluto was than Antarctica, or than the coldest day we had ever experienced in Pennsylvania.

    Pluto, which famously was downgraded from a “major planet” to a “dwarf planet”(矮星)in 2006, captured our imagination because it was a mystery that could complete our picture of what it was like at the most remote corners of our solar system

    Pluto’s underdog discovery story is part of what makes it so attractive. Clyde Tombaugh was a Kansas farm boy who built telescopes out of spare auto parts, old farm equipment and self-ground lenses. As an assistant at Lowell Observatory in Flagstaff, Arizona, Tombaugh's task was to search millions of stars for a moving point of light, a planet that the observatory’s founder thought existed beyond the orbit of Neptune. On February 181930Tombaugh found it. Pluto was the first planet discovered by an American, and represented a moment of light in the midst of the Great Depression’s dark encroachment (入侵).

    Pluto is much more than something that is not a planet. It’s a reminder that there are many worlds out there beyond our own and that the sky isn’t the limit at all. We don’t know what kinds of fantastic variations on a theme nature is capable of making until we get there to look.

    32. Why did Pluto become famous in 2006 according to the passage?

    A. Because it lost its major planet status.

    B. Because it disappeared in the sky.

    C. Because it was discovered by an American.

    D. Because it was proved to be the coldest planet in the universe.

    33. What can be a suitable title for the text?

    A. An American Scientist: Clyde Tombaugh

    B. Pluto was First Discovered by a Boy

    C. Pluto’s Strange Romance

    D. The Days I Spent with My Brother in Pennsylvania

    34. What can we learn from the fourth paragraph?

    A. Clyde Tombaugh discovered the darkness in the Great Depression.

    B. Pluto was the only planet that was discovered by Clyde Tombaugh.

    C. Clyde Tombaugh’s job was to build telescopes for Lowell Observatory.

    D. Clyde Tombaugh’s telescopes used for searching stars were very simple.

    35. What does the underlined sentence in the last paragraph most probably mean?

    A. Pluto is no less than a planet in the solar system.

    B. Pluto is much more than a planet in the solar system.

    C. Pluto is more important than any other planet in the sky.

    D. Pluto is not a planet in the solar system, but it is more than a planet.

    Just 50 years ago Manx seemed to be on the point of disappearing. "If you spoke Manx in a pub on the island in the 1960s, it was considered provocative(挑衅的) and you were likely to find yourself in a fight," recalls Brian Stowell, a 76-year-old islander who has written a Manx-language novel, The Vampire Murders, and presents a radio show on Manx Radio spreading the language every Sunday.

    The language itself is similar to the Gaelic tongues spoken in the island's neighbours, Ireland and Scotland. A century ago, "Moghrey mie" would have been commonly heard instead of good morning on the island.

    "In the 1860s there were thousands of Manx people who couldn't spea k English," says Stowell. "But only a century later it was considered to be so backwards to speak the language that there were stories of Manx speakers getting stones thrown at them in the towns. "I learnt it myself from one of the last surviving native speakers back in the 1950s."

    Recession(经济衰退 ) in the mid 19th Century forced many Manx residents to leave the island to seek work in England. And parents were not willing to pass the language down through the generations, with many believing that to have Manx as a first language would affect job opportunities overseas.

    There was a fall in the language. By the early 1960s there were perhaps as few as 200 who spoke the tongue. The last native speaker, Ned Maddrell, died in 1974. Unesco(联合国教科文组织) pronounced the language died out in the 1990s.

    Now there is even a Manx language primary school in which all subjects are taught in the language, with more than 60 pupils attending. Manx is also taught in other schools across the island.

    9. What does “Moghrey mie” mean according to the passage?

       A.All the best.    B. Congratulations.    C. Never mind.     D. Good morning.

    10. Many Manx people went to England to ______.

       A. learn Manx    B. teach English      C. look for jobs     D. attend college

    11. What is the passage mainly about?

       A. The Manx language.       B. The life of Manx people

       C. The Manx island.          D. The Manx language school

    Buckingham Palace is where the Queen lives. It is the Queen’s official and main royal London home.

    Buckingham Palace was originally a splendid house built by the Duke(公爵) of Buckingham for his wife. George IV began changing it into a palace in 1826. It has been the official London home of Britain’s royal family since 1837. Buckingham Palace is also an office and used for the administrative work of the royal family.

    When the Queen is at home you can see her royal flag (the Royal Standard) flying from the flag pole on top of Buckingham Palace.

    The flag is divided into four equal parts. The first and fourth parts represent England and contain three gold lions waking on a red field; the second part represents Scotland and contains a red lion standing on a gold field; the third part represents Ireland and contains the gold coat of arms of Ireland on a blue field.

    In flag protocol (礼仪), the Royal Standard which must only be flown from buildings where the Queen is present is supreme (至高无上的). It flies above the British Union Flag (the Union Jack ), and other British flags. It never flies at half mast.
