As my year as chief resident(进修医生) drew to a close, I asked myself this question 36 more than one

occasion. The answer, I concluded, was 37 . When you can say to yourself, “There is no surgical patient I cannot treat competently, treat just 38 or better than any other surgeon” — then, and not until then, you are 39 a surgeon. I was 40 that point. 41 , for example, the emergency situations that we met almost every night. The first few months of the year I had 42 the ringing of the telephone. I knew it meant another critical decision to be 43 . Often, after I had told Walt or Larry what to do in a particular 44 , I’d have trouble getting back to sleep. I’d 45 all the facts of the case and, often, wonder 46 I had made a poor decision. More than once at two or three in the 47 , after lying awake for an hour, I’d get out of 48 , dress and drive to the hospital to see the patient myself. It was the only 49 I could find the 50 of mind I needed to relax. Now, in the last month of my residency, 51 was no longer a problem. Sometimes I still couldn’t be sure of my decision, but I had learned to 52 this as a constant problem for a surgeon. I knew that with my knowledge and experience, any decision I’d made was bound to be a 53 one. It was a nice feeling. This all sounds conceited(自负的) and I guess it is — 54 a surgeon needs conceit. He needs it to encourage him in trying moments when he’s bothered by the 55 and uncertainties that are part of the practice of medicine. He has to feel that he’s as good as and probably better than any other surgeon in the world. Call it conceit — call it self-confidence; whatever it was, I had it. 36. A. at B. in C. on D. for 37. A. self-service B. self-centered C. self-reliant D. self-confidence 38. A. as good as B. as well as C. as far as D. as long as 39. A. indeed B. maybe C. perhaps D. even 40. A. waiting B. standing C. lying D. nearing 41. A. Let B. Take C. Have D. Get 42. A. valued B. avoided C. feared D. enjoyed 43. A. made B. applied C. included D. developed 44. A. condition B. state C. occasion D. situation 45. A. retell B. review C. revise D. remind 46. A. if B. why C. how D. when 47. A. evening B. day C. morning D. afternoon 48.

A He was an old man who fished alone in a boat in the Gulf Stream and he had gone eighty-four days now without taking a fish. In the first forty days a boy had been with him. But after forty days without a fish the boy’s parents had told him that the old man was now definitely and finally salao, which is the worst form of unlucky, and the boy had gone at their orders in another boat which caught three good fish the first week. It made the boy sad to see the old man come in each day with his skiff empty and he always went down to help him carry either the coiled lines or the gaff (鱼钩) and harpoon (鱼叉) and the sail that was furled around the mast (桅 杆). The sail was patched with flour sacks and, furled, it looked like the flag of permanent defeat. The old man was thin and gaunt with deep wrinkles in the back of his neck. The brown blotches（斑点）of the skin cancer the sun brings from its reflection on the tropic sea were on his cheeks. The blotches ran well down the sides of his face and his hands had the deep-creased scars from handling heavy fish on the cords. But none of these scars were fresh. They were as old as erosions in a fishless desert. Everything about him was old except his eyes and they were the same color as the sea and were cheerful and undefeated. “Santiago,” the boy said to him as they climbed the bank from where the skiff was pulled up. “I could go with you again. We’ve made some money.” The old man had taught the boy to fish and the boy loved him. “No,” the old man said. “You’re with a lucky boat. Stay with them.” “But remember how you went eighty-seven days without fish and then we caught big ones every day for three weeks.” “I remember,” the old man said. “I know you did not leave me because you doubted.” “It was papa who made me leave. I am a boy and I must obey him.” “I know,” the old man said. “It is quite normal.” “He hasn’t much faith.” “No,” the old man said. “But we have. Haven’t we?” “Yes,” the boy said. “Can I offer you a beer on the Terrace and then we’ll take the stuff home.” “Why not?” the old man said. “Between fishermen.” 56. The boy left the old man and went in another boat to fish because . A. the old man preferred to fish alone B. the old man was unlucky C. the boy’s parents ordered him to D. the old man’s sail suggested a permanent defeat 57. After reading this passage, we may safely conclude that . A. the old man was insistent and not afraid of failure[ B. the boy’s papa had confidence in everything C. the old man caught big fishes during eighty-seven days D. the boy obeyed his father because he had some doubts about the old man 58. What might happen after the last paragraph? A. The old man and the boy might go to fish with other fishermen. B. The old man might go to have a drink with the boy. C. The old man and the boy might go to enjoy beer at the old man’s home.

D. The old man might go to tell the boy’s papa about the secrets between fishermen. B The Friday after the American holiday of Thanksgiving is called Black Friday. It’s said that it’s the day that store ledgers(分类账)move into the black and companies become profitable. On that day, retailers slash prices to get consumers to buy. It is also a time when many Americans start their Christmas shopping. VOA’s Elizabeth Lee tells us how the economy may affect consumers on that bargain day. “It’s just the deals, the sales and everything you can get for a lesser price,” said Sandy Thomas, a shopper. But it’s a nightmare for others. “I think it’s crazy. I’ve done all of my shopping throughout the week so I don’t have to go out on Friday,” she said. It’s called Black Friday, the start of the traditional Christmas shopping season in the United States. Every year it’s the day after the Thanksgiving holiday. Stores open before sunrise and there are deep discounts everywhere you look. While the lead up to Christmas is known as the season of giving, Black Friday can get ugly. Last year a crowd of bargain-hunters killed a Wal-mart worker in a New York suburb. This year, many stores are increasing security while they slash prices. “This is a huge time for the retail stores,” said Fred Joutz from George Washington University. “This is when they begin making their profits for the year.” Economics professor Fred Joutz says how Americans spend the weekend after Thanksgiving is a good indication of how consumers feel about the future. With the unemployment rate above 10 percent, Joutz says Americans are saving more and spending less. “Credit is still strictly controlled whether through credit cards or through borrowing from banks,” he said. Some retailers are attracting consumers by opening on Thanksgiving Day, when shops are traditionally closed. Other stores open their doors anywhere from midnight to four in the morning. And shoppers will be lining up in front of the doors in order to be one of the first ones to walk through and get a big discount. Electronics like flat screen TVs are usually the first items to go. Sandy Thomas says it’s an annual family tradition and well worth it. “I just save maybe half of what I would have spent on a regular, you know, shopping trip,” she said. Economists say U.S. consumers will spend money this Black Friday, but they will spend it more carefully. 59. The underlined word “slash” in the first paragraph probably means _________. A. reduce B. raise C. increase D. change 60. The sentence “This day should be a shopper’s dream.” should be placed between ________. A. paragraph two and paragraph three B. paragraph one and paragraph two C. paragraph three and paragraph four D. paragraph five and paragraph six 61. Why are many stores increasing security according to the passage? A. Because there are too many people saving more and spending less. B. Because it’s a time when they begin making their profits for the year. C. Because last year a crowd of bargain-hunters caused an accident. D. Because many stores open their doors from midnight to four a.m. 62.What can we learn from the passage? A. Christmas shopping is traditional time and this year it is no exception.

B. Electronics like flat screen TVs are usually least discounted. C. The economy only affects consumers on that bargain day. D. Thanksgiving is a good indication of how consumers feel about the future. C Have you got any wonderful plans for your coming winter vacation? Here are some wonderful films for you to kill time.

The first sensible lesson is that you shouldn’t bother trying to find your way in the dark at all, but just stay put until dawn. Because then you won’t trip over things? No, mainly because you’ll have an idea of direction. The sun rises in the east. But you will be amazed at how many people forget they know that. Apparently, the area underneath a holly bush provides a good makeshift shelter — they are thick, and evergreen. The next thing to do — or rather not to do — is panic, for the obvious reason that unless there is someone there to hear you scream, it will get you nowhere. Just try to think of nice, happy things. There is always a point in films when a person who is lost in the desert or the snow, dehydrated(脱水的) and exhausted, comes across a set of their own footprints and realizes they have just walked in a huge, round circle. It is wrong to owe it to the unequal strengths or different lengths of your legs. Experiments prove that, without the sun or the moon (or landmarks) as a fixed guide, lots of small errors add up over time so the brain can’t correctly identify the “straight ahead” direction. To just get out of somewhere, pick a spot on the horizon and just head for it. There are several ways to find directions in the dark, and by far the best is to establish north using the stars. Most people can identify the Plough, which is part of Ursa Major. It looks a lot like a saucepan. The Plough rotates through the sky, but let’s imagine the saucepan lying horizontally (水平地), with its handle on the left. You need to trace a line from the star at the right-hand base of the pan, through the star at the right-hand rim (边沿), and follow it upwards; the north star is roughly five times the distance between those two “pointer” stars. Then drop a vertical line from the North Star to the horizon and that’s north. “Tonight is very cloudy and I can’t see the Plough.” Maybe luckily, it is quite windy. Keep in mind that almost all of our weather comes from a south-westerly direction. (This only works if you are in the British Isles). To find the direction, you can throw light bits of dried-out grass in the
第 8 页 共 12 页
air and see which way they blow; or, if there are clouds and patches of clear sky, see which way they blow across the stars. You can also get an idea of direction from leggy plants. If they look as if they have been blown over, they will probably be pointing north-east. If they are simply leaning in one direction as they grow, there’s a good chance that is south (they will be reaching towards the sun). The last thing to do is to judge your direction and off you go. 67. What might be the best title of the passage ? A. How to survive in the forest B. How to protect yourself in the forest C. How to direct your way out of the wild D. What to do if you are lost 68. Which of the following pictures matches the description of the position of the north star?
69. Why will people often walk in a circle if they are lost in the desert or the snow? A. Because without anything to refer to for directions, the brain will be confused by errors. B. Because one of the legs is longer and stronger than the other. C. Because the desert or the snow usually covers a large area for people to get across. D. Because people usually feel dehydrated and exhausted in the desert or the snow. 70. If you were lost in Taklimakan Desert in China, _________ would NOT be dependable for you to identify the directions. A. the sun B. the North Star C. wind D. the moon 第四部分：【2012届江苏省苏北四市高三第一次调研测试】任务型阅读（共10小题；每小 题1分，满分10分） 请认真阅读下列短文，并根据所读内容在文章后表格中的空格里填入一个最恰当的单 词。注意：每个空格只填1个单词。请将答案写在答题卡上相应题号的横线上。 “Four Tigers” Ceremony of the Tu Minority Heigouding Village, Ledu County in the west of Qinghai province is a place where many people of the Tu minority have lived for centuries. As the little village is comparatively closed to the outside world, a custom called “Four Tigers” was created 200 years ago to protect its inhabitants(栖息地) from sickness and bad luck. Every year the ceremony is held on the eve of January 15th according to the Chinese lunar calendar to frighten off ghosts and evil souls, and to pray for peace. Normally four local villagers are selected to be the “tigers” in the ceremony. At first, they gathered with village elders at the mountain-god temple to offer sacrifices of wine, food and incense, and to ask the god to help the tigers. Then the tigers were adorned with herbs, candles and two batches of incense to serve as the tiger’s ears. Two red ribbons held in their mouths represented the tiger’s tongue. The “Tigers” drank wine, knelt and kowtowed to the mountain god before they received Hada, a kind of white silk scarf representing respects and good luck, from the village head with firecrackers crackling. As night fell, the candles on the tigers’ bodies were lit and the tigers began their visits to one household after another. Villagers followed, shouting “Tigers are coming!” The elder from each

household welcomed the tigers at the gate, while the rest of the family knelt down in the courtyard. Firecrackers were set off, a toast made and candies, meat and wine were presented to the villagers following the tigers. After twirling (快速转动)in three circles in the courtyard while those present kowtowed and prayed, the tigers went through every corner of every room to drive away any hiding ghosts. If there was a sick person in the house, the tigers jumped around him or her, scratched their body and said lucky words to drive away diseases and ghosts. After the ceremony, the family would present wine and food to the tigers. Then, shouting “The tigers are leaving!” the whole family saw them off. After visiting all 30 or 40 households, the herbs were removed from the tigers and burned, to indicate that all the ghosts had been conquered. Then the villagers knelt and kowtowed with the sound of firecrackers, marking the end of the ceremony. The tiger image exists in other minority groups, also. In ancient times, people entrusted their happiness to gods. The “four tigers” ceremony is vividly held in memory of ancient times and a living fossil for academics studying the lives of ancient people. As it is not popular nowadays, this cultural heritage is on the edge of extinction and needs to be rescued.
