time dealing with negative images. In order to deal
with the 47 not to fall, Tammy’s brain had to first imagine falling, and then tell the brain not to do what it just imagined. However, my eight-year-old brain 48 had an internal(内部的) image of hanging on tightly. 49 to break a habit or set a goal. You can’t imagine not This ―self-talk‖ is especially useful when you are

第三部分：阅读理解(共 20 小题；每小题 2 分，满分 40 分)
阅读下列短文，从每篇短文后所给各题的四个选项（A、B、C 和 D）中，选出最佳选项，并在答题卡 上将该项涂黑。 A A farmer had some puppies(小狗) he needed to sell. He painted a sign advertising the pups and set about nailing(钉) it to a post(标杆) on the edge of his yard. As he was driving the last nail into the post, he felt a tug(用 力拉) on his clothes. He looked down into the eyes of a little boy. ―Mister,‖ he said, ―I want to buy one of your puppies. ―Well,‖ said the farmer. ―these puppies come from fine parents and cost a good deal of money.‖ The boy dropped his head for a moment. Then reaching deep into his pocket, he pulled out a handful of change and held it up to the farmer. ―I’ve got 39 cents. Is that enough to take a look?‖ ―Sure,‖ said the farmer. And with that he let out a whistle(口哨),―Here, Dolly!‖ he called.
Out from the doghouse and down the ramp(斜坡) ran Dolly followed by four little balls of fur. The little boy pressed his face against the chain link fence(铁丝网). His eyes danced with delight. As the dogs made their way to the fence, the little boy noticed something else moving inside the doghouse. Slowly another little ball appeared; this one clearly smaller. Down the ramp it slid（滑倒）. Then in a somewhat awkward manner the little pup began hobbling(跛行) toward the others, doing its best to catch up… ―I want that one,‖ the little boy said, pointing to the little puppy.
The farmer said: ―Son, you don’t want that puppy. He will never be able to run and play with you like these other dogs would.‖ The little boy stepped back from the fence, reached down, and began rolling up one leg of his trousers. He showed a steel brace(钢支架) running down both sides of his leg attaching(绑) itself to a specially made shoe. Looking back up at the farmer, he said: ―You see sir, I don’t run too well myself, and he will need someone who understands.‖ The world is full of people who need someone who understands. 51. The boy dropped his head for a while probably because A. he was not sure whether to buy a puppy or not B. he just wanted to have a look at the puppies C. he was disappointed about not having enough money D. he needed time to reach into his pocket for the change 52. The author described the puppies as ―balls of fur‖ A. because they were fat enough to be a ball B. because they moved in a way like a ball C. to show they were from good parents D. to show how lovely they were to the boy 53. The boy’s eyes ―danced with delight‖ because A. he was excited to see the lovely puppies B. he had been looking for a lame puppy for a long time C. he enjoyed comparing and choosing puppies D. he noticed something interesting in the doghouse 54. Why did the boy decide to take the last dog? A. Because he felt sorry for the dog. B. Because he understood the dog’s difficulty. C. Because he didn’t have enough money for the others. D. Because he didn’t need a dog that could run and play with him. . . .
B Heavy rains have caused disasters across China this summer, bringing the worst landslides(塌方，泥石流) in decades. The most deadly disaster happened on August 8 when a big landslide hit Zhouqu County in Gansu province, killing at least 1,407 people. On August 18, landslides hit Gongshan, a town in northwestern Yunnan. At least 38 people were killed and 54 are missing. Heavy rains also caused landslides in several counties in Sichuan province. People were forced to evacuate(撤离) to safe places. Landslides and devastation Landslides take place when dirt and rocks slide down a slope(斜坡) together. Sometimes these landslides are small, and hardly noticeable. Other times however, they can be massive(庞大的), involving the entire side of a
mountain. Landslides can be caused by a number of different things. Often rain, which adds weight to the side of a slope, can cause one. Other times they might be caused by erosion(侵蚀).When a stream slowly removes the base of a slope, it weakens the entire side of the mountain. As a slide moves down a mountain slope, it can pick up great speed and energy. Some slides travel at a speed of 300km an hour. The resulting winds can be so powerful that they are known to strip(剥离) the leaves off surrounding trees. Earthquakes and landslides Some experts think the landslides in Sichuan were related to the magnitude-8.0 Wenchuan earthquake on May 12, 2008. The quake has caused a change in the structure of the Earth’s surface, making it more likely that land will slide in the rain, according to geologist Xu Qiang of the Chengdu University of Technology. Landslides pose(造成) threats to 140 cities and towns in the country, one quarter of which are in Sichuan, said Wei Fangqiang, a researcher with the Chinese Academy of Sciences. Landslide prevention If you want to avoid being a landslide victim, the easiest thing to do is avoid living on slopes or close to mountains. If you live in a landslide-threatened area, try not to water the slopes if possible. If there are large rocks on the slopes above your house, remove them so that they don’t cause damage if they fall. It might also be helpful to plant trees on the slopes. Over time, the tree roots may make the soil firmer. 55. The landslides around China are mentioned at the beginning of the article to A. warn travelers to keep away from those places B. show that the environment in China is getting worse C. introduce the topic of landslides D. express concern for those affected by landslides 56. Which of the following statements is TRUE according to the article? A. Most landslides are too small to be detected. B. Heavy rains are the only cause of landslides. C. The dirt and rocks from a landslide can strip the leaves off surrounding trees. D. Some experts believe that earthquakes could make landslides more likely to happen. 57. Which of the following is the right way to avoid becoming a landslide victim? A. Living on a mountain top. B. Watering the slopes you live beside. C. Removing large rocks on the slopes. D. Planting trees around your house. 58. What is the main idea of the article? A. Landslides and their prevention. B. The after-effects of the Wenchuan earthquake. C. The mostly deadly disaster in China. .
D. How to survive a landslide. C One day a man saw an old lady, stranded(被困在) on the side of the road. Despite the dim light, he could see she needed help. So he pulled up in front of her Mercedes and got out. Even with the smile on his face, she was worried. No one had stopped to help for the last hour or so. Was he going to hurt her? He didn’t look safe; he looked poor and hungry. ―I’m here to help you, ma’am. By the way, my name is Bryan Anderson, ‖ he said. The car had broken down but it was easily fixed. As he was tightening up the screws(螺丝) on the door, she rolled down the window and began to talk to him. She told him that she was from St. Louis and was only passing through. She couldn’t thank him enough for coming to her aid. Anderson just smiled as he closed her trunk(后备箱). The lady asked how much she owed him. He told her that if she really wanted to pay him back, the next time she saw someone who needed help, she could give that person the assistance they needed. A few miles down the road the lady saw a small café The waitress came over and brought a clean towel to . wipe her wet hair. She had a sweet smile, one that even being on her feet for the whole day couldn’t erase(清除). The lady noticed the waitress was nearly eight months pregnant, but she never let the strain(劳累) and aches change her attitude when she served her. The lady finished her meal and paid with a hundred dollar bill. The waitress quickly went to get change for her hundred dollar bill, but the old lady had slipped right out the door. She was gone by the time the waitress came back. The waitress wondered where the lady could be. There was a note on the napkin: ―You don’t owe me anything. Somebody once helped me out the way I’m helping you. If you really want to pay me back, here is what you do: do not let this chain of love end with you.‖ Under the napkin were four more ＄100bills. 59. Why was the old lady worried when the man offered help? A. Because the man looked like a bad guy. B. Because she didn’t trust anybody. C. because she had no money with her D. Because she thought the man would overcharge her. 60. How did the man ask the old lady to thank him? A. He charged her the exact money. B. He didn’t ask her to do anything C. He asked her to help people in need. D. He said she could pay him back next time that she met him. 61. What did the old lady do in the café ? A. She told her story to the pregnant waitress. B. She rewarded the kind waitress with a generous tip. C. She helped the pregnant waitress lay the table. D. She taught the pregnant waitress how to help others.
62. What does the author intend to tell us with this story? A. Helping others is a great virtue. B. How to help others in an appropriate way. C. Don’t judge people by their appearance. D. The best way to pay back kindness is to pass it on. D More than tea in a cup ―You know, these cups bring to mind a tea quote (说法) I heard.‖ Mary’s aunt said. She poured tea. There were four of them and there were four totally different cups on the table. They grabbed(拿起) their tea cups. ―What quote?‖ Mary asked. ―Well, maybe I should rather say it is a story,‖ aunt said, ―I heard there was this wise teacher who took all his students for tea. They were surprised that all the cups on the table were different. They all took a cup and started drinking their tea, each looking at the cups of others. The teacher let them do that for a while and then said: ― Do you notice your behavior? You are all looking at each other’s tea cup and I can see some of you with the chipped(有殊缺的) ones are even envious(羡慕的) of the finer cups of others. Is this not so?‖ The students agreed, amused by their own behavior. ―You may have wondered why you all had different cups, but I put them here on purpose. You see----they represent life itself. Life is like that tea–---and the cups are like the physical circumstances(状况) of your life. You all got the same thing in your cups-tea. And yet you cannot truly enjoy it in your envy of another’s cup. It’s just the same with life. You forget to enjoy your own life when you concentrate on envying the circumstances of someone else’s life. So now, close your eyes, and taste your own tea. Really taste it. And tell me – did it matter from which cup it came from? ‖ Aunt finished telling her short tea story and they all sat in silence for a while, savoring(品尝) their tea. A sleepy fly buzzed(嗡嗡作响) past, a bird sang in the tree. And it really did not matter one bit from which tea cup they drank. 63. When the students found they had different tea cups, they A. were satisfied with their own cup B. were angry about the chipped cups they had been given C. asked the teacher to get new cups for them D. were curious about the difference between the cups 64. From the text, we can conclude that . .
A. the teacher prepared different tea cups for each student B. the teacher should have given the students the same tea cups C. the chipped tea cups were actually made of better materials D. each student took their time to choose a cup they liked 65. By comparing the cups to the physical circumstances of people’s lives, the teacher meant that people .
A. shouldn’t focus on the physical circumstances B. can’t change their physical circumstances C. should try different ways of life D. should always be prepared for strange things in life 66. The teacher’s message to the students was that A. life is actually hard and boring for everyone B. it is natural to be envious of the lives of others C. everyone should learn to enjoy life D. people act differently in different circumstances E Two Christmas traditions have come under attack in recent years from environmentalists: Christmas cards and Christmas trees. Paper cards are seen as wasteful and, for some people, going card-free is another way of going green. They also argue that in a world of e-mail, Skype, Face book and Twitter, people are in touch all the time anyway; they no longer need the yearly card that connects them with long lost friends. If you want to send Christmas greetings, there are free e-cards, which get the job done with no postage(邮费) or wasted paper. However, especially for people who didn’t grow up with e-mail, there is something missing from a Christmas e-mail. The first Christmas cards appeared in London in 1843 and were designed by the same man who had introduced the world’s first postage stamp three years earlier. His name was Sir Henry Cole. They rose in popularity throughout the 20th century. Many people sent cards that were sold for charity. The most famous of these are the ones sold for UNICEF. In the UK this year, in the three weeks before Christmas, the post office expects to handle 100 million cards every day. Environmental awareness also means that nowadays many people recycle their cards; this helps raise money to plant more trees, as well as recreating more paper. When we think of trees at Christmas, there is one that immediately springs(跃入) to mind – the evergreen tree that people decorate with ornaments and place their presents under. The custom dates back almost a thousand years to Germany. Nowadays 33 to 36 million Christmas trees are produced in America and 50 to 60 million in Europe each year. Some trees are sold live with roots and soil so people can plant them later and reuse them next year. Some people prefer artificial(人造的) trees as they are reusable and much cheaper than their natural alternative. However, environmentalists point out that they are made from petroleum(石油) products and so have many contamination(污染) issues. 67. What is the point of the article? A. To introduce the history of two typical Christmas traditions. B. To point out the problems in some traditional ways of celebrating Christmas. C. To analyze how two Christmas traditions grew in popularity. D. To explain the debate between environmentalists and traditionalists regarding some Christmas traditions. 68. Some people suggest getting rid of paper cards because a. they cannot be recycled . .
b. they are not environmentally friendly c. they are mostly sold for charity d. free e-cards have many advantages over them e. they are not as necessary as they used to be for people to stay connected A. a,b,d B. a,c,d C. b,d,e D. b,c,e
69. What can we conclude from the article? A. The first Christmas cards were designed three years earlier than the world’s first stamps. B. This year has seen a dramatic drop in Christmas card sales. C. Environmentalists advise people to buy cards that are sold for charity to help raise money. D. Growing environmental awareness is encouraging people to begin to recycle their cards. 70. Which of the following statements is TRUE according to the article? A. Some people prefer to buy live trees that can be reused next year. B. The custom of decorating Christmas trees first appeared in Britain. C. There is always a wider Christmas tree market in America than Europe. D. Artificial trees are better than natural ones in all aspects.

The majority of the students hold the view that they should take all kinds of exercise every day, so they keep doing exercises, play table tennis or basketball as often as possible. They think that it can help build up students’ character as well as bodies. Meanwhile it helps decline the opportunity to suffer diseases. In addition, as a result of exercise, they often feel dynamic, which contributes to their efficient study. As a matter of fact, many of the top students in the class are on fire for sports. Whereas, the minority of the students don’t show any interest in sports and games. They say they suffer from a heavy workload, which takes plenty of efforts to accomplish. Thus, they don’t have enough time for sleeping well and have to stay in the classroom doing their homework. So for the sake of their marks, they are not willing to go out for the activities. In my terms, sports and games are a necessity in our life and also to our study. As a saying goes well, all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. Now let’s go in for sports and games.
