四、阅读理解（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，并在答题卡 上将该项涂黑。 A Every day my husband parked his car in the same open-air car park in Zimbabwe. On this particular day, he had been running to his car with a huge bundle of office papers under his arm. As he opened the car door, he suddenly lost control of his body. He felt a stabbing pain in his arm, became totally breathless and lost consciousness. As he collapsed, half in, half out of the car, his last thought was “what a way to die”. A young woman getting into her own car in the otherwise deserted car park noticed what was going on and at once ran to my husband?s aid, trying to resuscitate him. Realizing time was critical, she tried to move my husband to her car, calling the guard at the gate. Fearing an ambulance would take too long to arrive, she felt it better to get to the hospital as quickly as she could. She raced through traffic lights sounding her car?s horn and screeched into the hospital car park, calling out, “I have an unknown man here who I think is having a heart attack.” Once this Good Samaritan realized he was in capable hands she returned to the car park, found his keys on the ground, collected his scattered papers and stacked them in the car. Having seen my husband come out of a certain building each day, the security guard thought he knew where he worked. The young woman managed to locate his colleagues who in turn contacted my niece. She then waited for me to return home so she could break the news to me. After extensive tests it turned out that my husband had had a grand mal epileptic seizure. We were naturally eager to find the kind stranger who had come to his aid. After some weeks we discovered where the young woman worked. She was overjoyed when my husband walked into her office with a huge bouquet(束) of flowers. She said she required no thanks, and preferred to remain anonymous(匿名的). We now live in a different country, but each Christmas my husband remembers her act of kindness and sends a gift. We regard every day of his life as a bonus, all thanks to this kind stranger. 56．From the passage, we can infer that _____. A．a heart attack hit the writer?s husband suddenly B．there were few cars in her park that day C．the young woman was at a loss at first D．the woman was fined for breaking the traffic lights
57．The underlined word “resuscitate” in Paragraph 2 may mean” _____”. A．get…out B．help…stand up C．bring back to life D．wake…up 58．Who told the writer the news of her husband?s illness? A．The young woman. B．The security guard. C．The colleague of her husband. D．The writer?s niece. 59．What might be the most suitable title for the passage? A．The Gift of Life B．An Act of Thanks C．The Attack of a Disease D．The Love of a Young Woman B
Micro-Enterprise Credit for Street Youth Introduction Although small-scale business training and credit programs have become more common throughout the world, relatively little attention has been paid to the need to direct such opportunities to living on the street or in difficult circumstances. Over the past nine years, Street Kids International (S.K.I.) has been working with partner organizations in Africa, Latin America and India to support the economic lives of street children. The purpose of this paper is to share some of the lessons S.K.I. and our partner organizations have learned. Background Typically, children end up on the streets not due to a single cause, but to a combination of factors: a lack of adequately funded schools, the demand for income at home and so on. The street may be attractive to children as a place to find adventurous play and money. However, it is also a place where some children are exposed, with little or no protection, to exploitative (剥削的) employment, urban crime. Lessons learned The following lessons have come from the programs that S.K.I. and partner organizations have created. It is important for all loans (贷款) to be linked to training programs that include the development of basic business and life skills. Small loans are provided for purchasing things such as bicycles, shoe shining kits (装备). All S.K.I. programs have charged interest on the loans, primarily to get the business runners used to the concept of paying interest on borrowed money. Generally the rates have been modest. Conclusion There is a need to recognize the importance of access to credit for poor young people seeking to fulfill economic needs...
60．The organization, S.K.I., aims to _____. A．provide schools and social support for street children B．give business training and loans to street children C．share the lessons S.K.I learned to help street children D．draw the attention of the government to street children 61．According to the passage, what is the most probable reason why children end up living on the street? A．Unemployment. B．Adventurous play. C．Urban crimes. D．Poverty. 62．This passage implies that with the help of S.K.I street children may _____. A．reject paid employment B．leave their families C．set up their own business D．employ other children 63．Street children can borrow money _____. A．but should pay interest B．and needn?t pay any interest
C．and needn?t pay it back things
D ． but should spend it on school
C Not everyone who teaches in a college or university is a professor. Many are instructors or lecturers. In fact, not even all professors are full professors. Many of them are assistant or associate professors or adjunct professors. So what do all of these different academic titles mean at American colleges and universities? Get ready for a short lecture, especially if you are thinking of a career in higher education. Professors usually need a doctoral degree. But sometimes a school will offer positions to people who have not yet received their doctorate. This person would be called an instructor until the degree has been completed. After that, the instructor could become an assistant professor. Assistant professors do not have tenure. Tenure means a permanent appointment. This goal of greater job security is harder to reach these days. Fewer teaching positions offer the chance for tenure. Assistant professors generally have five to seven years to gain tenure. During this time, other faculty members study the person?s work. If tenure is denied, then the assistant professor usually has a year to find another job. An assistant professor who receives tenure becomes an associate professor. An associate professor may later be appointed a full professor. Assistant, associate and full professors perform many duties. They teach classes. They advise students. And they carry out research. They also serve on committees and take part in other activities. Other faculty members are not expected to do all these jobs. They are not on a tenure track. Instead, they might be in adjunct or visiting positions. A visiting professor has a job at one school but works at another for a period of time. An adjunct professor is also a limited or part-time position, to do research or teach classes. Adjunct professors have a doctorate. Another position is that of lecturer. Lecturers teach classes, but they may or may not have a doctorate. 64．In which column of a newspaper can the passage probably appear? A．Education. B．Entertainment. C．Politics. D．Sports. 65．Which of the following positions should have a doctor degree? A．Instructors and lecturers. B．Assistant professors and instructors. C．Lecturers and adjunct professors. D．Assistant and adjunct professors. 66．According to Paragraph 6, how long can an assistant professor stay in his or her position at most? A．13 years. B．12 years. C．7 years. D．8 years. 67．Which one shows the correct order for a professor?s development? a．An assistant professor b．An instructor c．A full professor d．An associate professor
A．b, a, d, c D．b, c, a, d
B．b, d, a, c
C．c, a, d, b
D A new “beauty making” computer program uses a mathematical formula(公式)involving 234 measurements of distances between facial features to get a theoretically more attractive version of a picture, while keeping the basic appearance of the face unchanged. Unlike changes done in fashion magazine photos, wrinkles were not smoothed and hair color was not changed. The program is the latest attempt to combine beauty and science, a subject that has drawn increasing academic interest in the last decade. Studies have shown there is surprising agreement among people of different cultures about what makes a face attractive. Most important is symmetry(匀称), along with youthfulness, skin smoothness and vivid eyes and hair color. Yet, like the many other scientific or mathematical attempts to define beauty, this software program raises complex and difficult questions about the understanding of beauty. “How can they prove something is more or less beautiful?” said Lois Banner, a history professor at Chicago University, who studies changing beauty standards. “There can never be a single standard of beauty because so much of it is culturally influenced.” After viewing “before” and “after” photographs of different people, Banner said the original faces were more attractive. “Irregular beauty is the real beauty,” said Banner, adding that attempts to measure beauty are driven by the media?s efforts to define beauty and who is beautiful. Martina Eckstut, the woman whose photo was beautified for this article, said she was struck by how different she looked. “I think the ?after? picture looks great, but it doesn?t really look like me at all.” She added, “I would like to keep my original face.” For centuries people have tried to define a universal idea of beauty. “The first reaction we have to faces will be based on face symmetry.” said Alexander Nehamas, a professor who has written about beauty. “But in real life we don?t just see a face. We see faces as people express their emotions and ideas, and all those aspects of the face are essential to our deciding whether a face or a person is beautiful.” 68．How does the “beauty making” computer program work? A．It changes the distances between facial features. B．It smooths the skin and softens the color of the hair. C．It repairs imperfect facial appearance by using a mathematical formula. D．It replaces the original face with a similar one. 69．After seeing her beautified photo, Martina Eckstut _____. A．was shocked because her face looked really very ugly B．preferred to get her face changed although it didn?t look like her at all C．was amazed by the attractiveness but refused to change her face in reality D．was confused by how different she looked and had no idea what to do 70．Which of the following statements is TRUE? A．Beauty lies in face symmetry. B．There is no single standard or definition of beauty. C．People of different cultures can hardly reach any agreement on beauty. D．Science should be used to help us create beauty. 71．The purpose of the passage is to _____.
A．criticize the attempts to create artificial beauty B．introduce a beauty program and a discussion about beauty C．discuss what makes a person beautiful D．encourage people to change their appearance E In only two decades Asian Americans have become the fastest growing U. S. minority. As their children began moving up through the nation schools, it became clear that a new class of academic achievers was emerging. Their achievements are reflected in the nation?s best universities, where mathematics, science and engineering departments have taken on a decidedly Asian character. This special liking for mathematics and science is partly explained by the fact that Asian-American students who began their education abroad arrived in the U. S. with a solid grounding in mathematics but little or no knowledge of English. They are also influenced by the promise of a good job after college. Asians feel there will be less unfair treatment in areas like mathematics and science because they will be judged more objectively. And the return on the investment in education is more immediate in something like engineering than with an arts degree. Most Asian-American students owe their success to the influence of parents who are determined that their children take full advantage of what the American educational system has to offer. An effective measure of parental attention is homework. Asian parents spend more time with their children than American parents do, and it helps. Many researchers also believe there is something in Asian culture that brings on success, such as ideals that stress family values and emphasize education. Both explanations for academic success worry Asian Americans because of fears that they feed a typical racial image. Many can remember when Chinese, Japanese and Filipino immigrants were the victims of social isolation. Indeed, it was not until 1952 that laws were laid down giving all Asian immigrants the right to citizenship. 72．While making great achievements at college, Asian-American students _____. A．feel they are mistreated because of limited knowledge of English B．are afraid that their academic successes bear a strong Asian character C．still worry about unfair treatment in society D．generally feel it a shame to have to depend on their parents 73．What are the major factors that determine the success of Asian Americans? A．A solid foundation in basic mathematics and Asian culture. B．Hard work and a great deal of intelligence. C．Parents? help and a limited knowledge of English. D．Asian culture and the American educational system. 74．Few Asian American students major in human sciences mainly because _____. A．their English is not good enough for other majors B．they are afraid they might meet with unfair judgment in these areas C．there is a wide difference between Asian and Western cultures D．they know little about American culture and society 75．Why do “both explanations” (Para. 3) worry Asian Americans? A．American academic achievements have taken on too strong an Asian character. B．People will think that Asian students rely on their parents for success. C．Asian Americans will be a threat to other minorities in America.
D．They are afraid that they will again be isolated from American society in general. 五、写作（共两个写作任务，满分 35 分） 写作一（满分 15 分） 请结合材料，按要求用英文写作，词数不少于 60。 USA data shows that nowadays boys tend to perform worse than girls in all aspects in school, which is known as the “boy crisis”.

Writing task 1 I?m opposed to the same-sex education. One reason is that it?s not practical to be carried out on a large scale at present. Moreover, same-sex schools could encourage inequality and unfairness between boys and girls. But most importantly, if kids can encounter the opposite sex, they will have more appreciation, understanding and sympathy for others. This will help them be more mature and open-minded and contribute to their well-being in later life. Writing task 2 According to the result of a survey in six big cities like Beijing and Shanghai before the Spring Festival, nearly 70 percent of the people surveyed have been defined as the “home-fear group”, or those who have deep concerns about going back home for the Spring Festival. Firstly, most of them find it difficult to buy travel tickets for home. Secondly, some of them say their hometown is too far away and the holidays are too short. Thirdly, others feel they are no longer accustomed to the country life after getting married in the cities. From my point of view, whether to go back home for the Spring Festival is not just a personal choice, it also reveals many social problems. First, the government seems to have failed to provide a good transportation service for the festival. Second, the development in urban and rural areas is unbalanced. (Finally, holidays should be more flexible to meet the needs of people from a large population). Therefore, the government should take all the above into consideration for the good of the public.
