Eleven-year-old Angela was stricken with a disease involving her nervous system. The doctors did not hold out much hope of her ever recovering 31 this illness.

One day, Moses Mendelssohn, who was short and had a humpback(驼背),visited a merchant in Hamburg who had a lovely daughter named Frumtje. Moses fell hopelessly in love with her. But Frumtje was disgusted by his misshapen appearance.
31 it was time for him to leave, Moses gathered his courage and climbed the stairs to her room to take one last opportunity to speak with her. She was a vision of heavenly beauty, but caused 32 deep sadness by her refusal to look at him. 33 several attempts at conversation, Moses shyly asked, ―Do you believe 34 (marry) are made in heaven?‖
31. When。表示“当??时”，用连词when。 32. him。因cause后接双宾语，缺表示人的间接宾语；又由句意 可知，填him。句意：他感到非常难过的是, 她连看也不看他一眼。 33. After。指在经过几次尝试性开口后，摩西怯生生地问。故填 介词after。 34. marriages。在宾语从句中作主语用名词，表示“婚姻”；由 are可知，用复数，故填marriages。句意：你相信婚姻是上天注定 的吗?
―Yes,‖ she answered, still 35 (look) at the floor. ―And do you?‖ ―Yes I do,‖ he replied. ―You see, in heaven at the birth of each boy, the Lord announces 36 girl he will marry. When I was born, my future bride 37 (point) out to me. Then the Lord added, ?But your wife 38 (be) humpbacked.‘‖ 35. looking。因she与looking是主动关系，用现在分词 作伴随状语。 36. which。引导宾语从句并在从句中作定语，表示 “哪一个”。 37. was pointed。因my future bride与point out是被动 关系，要用被动语态。 38. will be。对出生那时来说，当然是将来。
―Right then and there I called out, ?Oh Lord, a humpbacked woman would be a tragedy. Please, Lord, give me the hump and let 39 be beautiful.‘‖ Then Frumtje looked up 40 his eyes and was stirred by some deep memory. She reached out and gave Mendelssohn her hand and later became his devoted wife. 39. her。替代my future bride。
40. into。搭配：looked up into his eyes抬头注视着他 的眼睛。
Years ago, when I started looking for my first job, wise advisers urged, ―Barbara, be enthusiastic! Enthusiasm will take you further than any amount of experience.‖ How right they were.

A. whispers B. shouts C. thinks D. says √
22. A。全文都是说热情的重要性，所以没有“热 情”就没有任何伟大的成就。 23. B。句意是，“当事情进展不顺时，热情是帮 助你坚持下去的粘合剂”。tough意为“艰苦的， 棘手的(difficult to do or deal with)‖。 24. A。由“内心发出的声音(the inner voice)‖可排 除其他选项。

A. sleeping B. leaving C. resting √ stopping D.
25. D。由本段末句“Work was such a deep pleasure…‖可知。 26. C。指巴巴拉工作多年后才“被公众承认”。本句是长句也是 复杂句，主句是it takes time to do sth句型，其中to be generally accepted是真正的主语；a geneticist who won… medicine是 Barbara McClintock的同位语。 27. D。因工作对他来说是一件如此快乐的事，所以他从未想到 “停止”工作。

So he made a snap at _38_ shadow in the water, _39_ he opened his mouth the piece of meat fell out, _40_ (drop) into the water and was never seen more. Beware lest you lose the substance by grasping at the shadow. 37. another。指它以为是“另一只狗”。 38. the。特指水中的“那个”影子。 39. but。前后是转折关系。 40. dropped。与open, was seen是并列关系，三个先后发 生的动作应当用同一时态，故drop也用一般过去时，故 填dropped。

A. failures B. honors √ C. changes C. memories D. √ grows D. toothaches
25. D。有前面的begins和后面的ends的提示，结合 事物都会有“发生、发展、结束”的规律，故填 grows (=develops)。 26. A。由与之并列的heartaches(伤心)可知应填 failures(失败)。

虽被解雇，却依依不舍 (语法) It was a bright spring afternoon when Freda told Tim she wouldn‘t need him any more. Tim had just finished his four-hour work－moving up and down the stairs of her three-storey home, 31 (clean) the floor and washing the dishes. She was wearing jeans and a sweater. Her husband‘s pay was going 32 (reduce) by thirty percent. And they were trying to live as if it‘d already happened. Tim felt sorry for her, but he also felt a sense of 33 ( lose).
31. cleaning。与moving…和and washing…为并列的分 词短语，作状语，故填cleaning。 32. to be reduced。在表将来的be going后要用动词不定 式，pay ―将被减少”，故要用不定式的被动式。 33. loss。介词of 后加名词，同时a sense of loss的意思 是“失落感” 。
Tim had been cleaning Freda‘s house for five years and had developed an 34 (expect) relationship with the family. It was not just that Tim had become 35 expert at scraping(刮掉) dirt stuck to their wooden floor, 36 that he had learned 37 (exact) how to place toys on the girls‘ beds. It was more than that, 38 he felt he‘d become a part of their life.
34. unexpected。此空前有an冠词，后有名词relationship, 断定此 空应用形容词，而这种与Freda一家的关系是Tim没有料想到的， 故用unexpected。 35. an。表示“一个”专家。expert 以发元音开头，故用an。 36. or。or在此处表选择，并列了that Tim had become… 和 that he had learned….。 37. exactly。用副词来修饰动词不定式。 38. for。表示原因对前句起补充说明的作用。
Now he was fired, but the strange thing was 39 he still wanted to keep scraping away the dirt and dust for the family. He left Freda‘s house that day, wondering about the nature of his relationship with his clients (主顾). ―Who am I to 40? Actually, I‘m only an employee. But I‘m also a trusted member of the family.‖ Tim believed. 39. that。that 引导一个完整句子放在was后面作表语从 句。 40. them。这里用them指代Freda一家人。

22. A. awesome √ C. wonderful 23. A. yet B. very
B. handsome D. troublesome C. √ even D. quite
22. A。由前两句可知，此处的awesome是俚语，意为 “了不起的 (excellent or outstanding)‖。 23. C。句意为：“你已经很了不起了，你甚至还会更 了不起。”修饰比较级，表示“甚至更”，用even。
Beautiful young people are the whimsy (奇想) of nature, but beautiful 24 people are true works of art. But you don‘t become ―beautiful‖ just because of the 25 process. 24. A. excellent √ old B. C. female D. rich

B. growing D. aging √
24. B。由前面的Beautiful young people及but可知。

Real beauty comes from ___26___, growing, and loving in the ways of life. That is the Art of Life. You can learn slowly, and sometimes ___27___.
26. A. learning √ C. travelling 27. A. quickly C. regretfully B. working D. entertaining B. painfully √ D. successfully
26. A。由下文You can learn可知。 27. B。根据常识，加上与slowly并列，选“痛 苦的(painfully)‖更好。

明信片助她度过过渡期 (语法) 本文讲叙Sally初入大学那一段时间度日如年，整天 想家，然而不明来历的明信片却帮助Sally很好地度过了 难熬的过渡期。 The year Sally went to college was a very difficult transition(过渡期) for her, as is probably true with many people. She got quite a lot of homework and often thought about 31 (go) home. 31. going。在介词后的动词应用动词的ing形式作宾语。
Although the 32 (happy) time for many students is getting letters from home, her mailbox was frequently empty. One day when she went to the mailbox, there was a postcard staring out at her. She sat down to read it, expecting a note 33 someone back home. But she became increasingly puzzled as no postcards were like this: It was a full news report about a woman 34 (name) Mabel and her newborn baby. She took the card back to her room and forgot about 35.
32. happiest。此空前有冠词the，后有名词time, 断定此空应用形 容词，但从句意来看，“收到来自家人的信对于很多学生来说是 最幸福的时刻了。”故用happy的最高级。 33. from。表示“期待来自某人的?东西”是expect sth. from sb.。 34. named。一个被叫作Mabel的女人，故此用named Mabel 作a woman的后置定语。 35. it。这里用it指代前面出现的the card。
Several days later she received 36 postcard, this one delivering news about Mabelline, Mabel‘s cousin. Soon after, another card arrived and then another, each full of news of different people. She began to 37 (real) look forward to the next one, 38 (interest) to see 39 this author would come up with next. She was never disappointed. 36. another。不定数目中的“再一，又一”用 “another‖。 37. really。修饰动词look用副词，因此要填really。 38. interested。She盼望着下一张postcard的到来，同 时对寄卡人会在卡上写些什么东西也很感兴趣。 interested to see….充当状语。 39. what。see后接了宾语从句，而宾语从句缺了一个 充当宾语的连接词，因此该用what引导此宾语从句。
Finally, the cards stopped coming, right about the time she had begun to feel the college life easy. They had been 40 a happy distraction(调剂) that she has saved all the postcards. 40. such。such….that为固定搭配，表“如此??以 致??”。

When Jack bowed to someone, he always did it _31_ lightening speed. You shouldn‘t wait any longer_32_he has had his head nod. So he _33 (blame) for no manners. Then some warmhearted men taught _34_, ―When you bow to somebody next time, you can count ―January, February, March…_35_ December. Then you can lift your body up. Thus, the ceremony will be perfect. 31. at。表示“以”某种速度，用介词at。 32. after。因为“他飞快地一点头，就算完了”，所 以“在他鞠躬之后”，你就不要再等，马上可以走了。 33. was blamed。因与是被动关系，即“他受到责 备”。句意：“大家都怪他不懂礼貌。” 34. him。指“有好心人教他”。 35. until。意为“一直数到十二月为止”，表示“直 到”用介词until。

A. fortunately B. √ particularly C. immediately D. personally
21. D。父辈的一些关于运动员的能力是“传承”下来的， 不能是直接 “给”，也不能“教”出来的，更不能是 “分 配” 给某一个人。D选项可以和后面构成“pas…on to‖搭配。 22. B。Michael 向他的姐姐学到了很多，“特别是”个人 努力的价值这一方面。particularly 是指“在各个方面中，更 突出强调某一方面或某一点”。

A. powerful B. wonderful C. skillful D. peaceful √ 23. A。前面提到了他的身体框架适合于游泳，所以这里 说他要充分利用“身体”这一优势。 24. A。前文说他身体素质好，手和脚都像桨，说明游泳 时的kick 的力量是“强大”的，后文说他腿的力量起到 作用，这也是他能成为一名优秀运动员的原因之一。

25. A. spirit B. statement C. technique √ 26. A. will B. feel C. change √ D. standard D. try
25. C。因为下面的句子说到“除了??之外”，说明 这里主句部分不是在说他的“精神”。整段不是在说他 的“论断”，而是在 “技术”层面上分析他成名的原 因。Standard意思是“标准” 和表语搭配不恰当。 26. B。对于一个游泳运动员来说，对于水的“感觉,掌 握”是很重要的，这也是常识。这里feel的词性是名词。
The leg strength Michael added during his 2007 wristinjury recovery was evident in Beijing on his powerful turns. In the races, he made up an 27 amount of time pushing off the wall.

A. brought B. afforded C. challenged D. consumed √ 29. A. year B. day C. minute D. √ second
27. D。unbelievable 多用于修饰一些事件。根据上下文的语气可以 看出他花费了“不寻常”数量的时间——更的时间，才能赢得比赛。 28. A。在比赛中，强有力的kick 给他“赢得，带来”了一点点时间。 29. D。这强有力的kick给菲尔蒲斯赢得了一点点时间。这里second 的意思是“秒”,更能表现出比赛中运动员之间的所用时间的微小 差距。
His ability to relax is unique in his sport. He never seems nervous before a race, yet his intensity (强度 ) on the starting block is 30 . 30. A. unbalanced C. unmatched √ B. unmentioned D. unchanged
30. C。本文一直都是在围绕“他的各个方面与 众不同，才能成名”这一主线。他在游泳比赛 中能够胜出他人，其中一个原因是: 他虽然比赛 前似乎不紧张，但是他在“starting block‖的那 种紧张程度是 “无人可比的”。
One of the most remarkable things about the human mind is our ability to imagine the future. In our minds we can see 31 has not yet happened.
