The mix of five events occurring in 2019 is especially interesting，because no two will be alike! According to Xinhua, China will see two solar eclipses and one lunar eclipse in 2019。 3D- printed everything Expect 2019 to be the year 3D printing, for 3D bioprinting in the medical field,
B. At the gas station.
C. On the side of the
advanced 3D metal printing which will revolutionize manufacturing and even more accessible 3D printing at home. A public domain year Starting from ]an.1, hundreds of thousands of works of art, film, literature and music from 1923 will enter the public domain. Works from authors like H. G. Wells, music from composers like Bela Bartok, and some Charlie Chaplin films will be easier to (legally) access, sell, buy and enjoy. The Periodic Table Science lovers, it's your time to shine. Dmitri Mendeleev's world-changing system, the Periodic Table, turns 150 in 2019, and the United Nations has designated it the Year of the Periodic Table of Chemical Elements. Why not reacquaint yourself with this critical chemical advancement? Women’s World Cup The FIFA Women’s World Cup will take place in June and July of 2019 all around France, whose men’s team won the 2018 World Cup. If soccer isn’t your jam, but World Cups are, you can expect the Rugby World Cup held in Japan in September, or the Cricket World Cup held in London in May.
The world not ending When it comes to astronomical objects, you may recall years ago that an asteroid was predicted to come close to Earth in 2019, hitting us and making us all into fiery pieces of space dust. But NASA has completely rejected this and said the asteroid will fly by with a margin of about 2.6 million miles. 21. How many eclipses can be observed in China in 2019? A. One. B. Two. C. Three. D. Five.
22. What event will take place in the autumn of 2019? A. The Cricket World Cup B. The Rugby World Cup
C The FIFA Men's World Cup 23. What can we know from the passage?
D. The FIFA Women's World Cup
A. The Periodic Table was invented 150 years ago. B. NASA said the asteroid will probably hit the Barth. C. The 2019 World Cups will all be launched in Europe. D. Charlie Chaplin films can be obtained free of charge. B We often think that our affairs, great or small, must be tended continuously and in detail, or our world will break apart, and we will lose our places in the universe. That is . not true, or if it is true, then our situations were so temporary that they would have collapsed (崩溃} anyway. . Once a year or so get away for a day. On the eve of my day of absence, I inform housemates, my family and close friends that I will not be reachable for twenty-four hours; then I disconnect the telephone. I sit for at least an hour in a very hot bathtub; then I lay out my clothes in preparation for my morning escape, and knowing that nothing will disturb me, I sleep well. On the morning I wake naturally, for I will have set no clock, nor informed my body timepiece when it should alarm. I dress in comfortable shoes and casual clothes and leave my house going no place. If I am living in a city, I wander streets, window-shop, or stare at buildings. I enter and leave public parks, libraries, and theatres. I stay in no place for very long. Every person needs to take one day away. A day in which one consciously , separates the past from the future. Jobs, family and friends can exist one day without any one of us. Each person deserves the day in which no problems are faced up to, no solutions searched for, We need hours of aimless wandering or sitting on park benches, observing the mysterious world of ants. If we step away for a time, we are not, as many may think, being irresponsible,
but rather we are preparing ourselves to more ably perform our duties. When I return home, I am always surprised to find some questions I sought to evade had been answered and some entanglements (瓜葛) I had hoped to flee had become separated out in my absence. A day away can help drive away the bitterness, transform hesitation, and renew the spirit. 24. Why does the author lay out his clothes the night before his day away? A. He will not forget what he should wear. B. He is able to sleep late in the morning. C. He can be dressed as stylishly as possible. D. He gets ready for the journey in the morning. 25. The words casual, wander, and stare in Paragraph 3 suggest a feeling of A. determination B. mystery C. relaxation D. confusion .
26. What does the underlined word “evade”in the last paragraph probably mean? A. Consider B. Avoid C. Decide D. Raise
27. What is the author’s purpose in writing the text? A. To describe what it is like to rediscover a city. B. To show how to spend a day away from home. C. To entertain readers with a story of an unusual day. D. To persuade readers to take some time for themselves. C Has it come to this ？ Robots standing for doctors at the hospital patients' bedside? Not exactly，but some doctors have found a way to use a robot to check on patients while they're miles from the hospital. One is at Baltimore's Sinai Hospital Equipped with cameras ， a screen and microphone，the robot is guided into the rooms of Dr Alex Gandsas' patients where he speaks to them as if he were right there. “The system allows you to be anywhere in the hospital from anywhere in the
world，” said the surgeon，who specializes in weight?loss operation. Besides his normal morning and afternoon personal visits ， Gandsas uses the $150,000 robot to visit patients at night or when problems arise.The robot can circle the bed and adjust the position of its two cameras，giving the perception from the patient's standpoint that the doctor is there.“They love it. They'd rather see me through the robot，” he said of his patients' reaction to the machine. Nurse Florence Ford，who has worked with the robot since it was introduced about 18 months ago， said patients have reacted well，particularly because “seeing the doctor's face gives them confidence.” Gandsas presented the idea to hospital leaders as a method to more closely observe patients following weight?loss operation.Since its introduction，Dr Alex found that nearly one third of his 376 patients went out of hospital earlier than first expected. Michael Chan， president of In Touch Technologies， said his company's device allows doctors to “be in more than one place at the same time.” Speaking with Gandsas through one of the robots at company headquarters，Chan said the company designs applications for the devices in remote areas and for dealing with shortages of health care workers.“They will soon be big，”said Chan when asked about their future. 28. According to the passage， which of the following statements of the robot is Correct? A．It has replaced Dr Alex to visit his patients every day. B．The patients would rather have it treat their diseases. C．Patients are likely to be treated even when doctors are far away. D．It has reduced the duty that doctors should have for their patients. 29. By using robots，Dr Alex finds that ______. A. he can operate on different patients at the same time B. the number of patients in his hospital is reducing a lot C. patients visited by robots may recover completely sooner D. their hospital doesn't need as many medical workers as before 30. From the last sentence，we can learn that Michael Chan thinks that ______. A. more robots of this kind will be used in hospitals
B. people won't believe robots will do well in the future C. in the future bigger robots will be made to satisfy the needs D. the prices of the robots will be greatly reduced in the future 31. What would be the best title of the passage? A. Robot Replaces Doctors to Treat Patients B. Robot Visits Patients When Doctors Can't C. High?tech Makes Patients Better Communicate with Doctors D. Robot Has Begun to Play a Great Part in Hospital Management D It happened to me recently. I was telling someone how much I had enjoyed reading Barack Obama’s Dreams From My Father and how it had changed my views of our President. A friend I was talking to agreed with me that it was, in his words, “a brilliantly written book”. However, he then went on to talk about Mr. Obama in a way which suggested he had no idea of his background at all. I sensed that I was talking to a book liar. And it seems that my friend is not the only one. Approximately two thirds of people have lied about reading a book which they haven’t. In the World Book Day’s “Report on Guilty Secrets”, Dreams From My Father is at number 9. The report lists ten books, and various authors, which people have lied about reading, and as I’m not one to lie too often (I’d hate to be caught out), I’ll admit here and now that I haven’t read the entire top ten. But I am pleased to say that, unlike 42 percent of people, I have read the book at number one, George Orwell’s 1984. I think it’s really brilliant. The World Book Day report also has some other interesting information in it. It says that many people lie about having read Jane Austen, Charles Dickens, Fyodor Dostoevsky (I haven’t read him, but haven’t lied about it either) and Herman Melville. Asked why they lied, the most common reason was to “impress” someone they were
speaking to. This could be tricky if the conversation became more in-depth! But when asked which authors they actually enjoy, people named J. K. Rowling, John Grisham, Sophie Kinsella (ah, the big sellers, in other words). Forty-two percent of people asked admitted they turned to the back of the book to read the end before finishing the story (I’ll come clean: I do this and am astonished that 58 percent said they had never done so). 32. How did the author find his friend a book liar? A. By judging his manner of speaking. C. By mentioning a famous name. B. By looking into his background. D. By discussing the book itself.
33. Which of the following is a “guilty secret” according to the World Book Day report? A. Charles Dickens is very low on the top-ten list. B. 42% of people pretended to have read 1984. C. The author admitted having read 9 books. D. Dreams From My Father is hardly read. 34. By lying about reading, a person hopes to____________________. A. appear knowledgeable C. learn about the book B. control the conversation D. make more friends
35. What is the author’s attitude to 58% of readers? A. Doubtful. B. Uncaring C. Favorable D. Friendly
第二节(共 5 小题；每小题 2 分，满分 10 分) 根据短文内容， 从短文后的选项中选出能填入空白处的最佳选项。 选项中有两项为多余选项。 Little Habits Make a Big Difference Everything around us is changing at amazing speed, it seems—but some things will always remain the same. 36 . Some of our daily habits have the power to always
give us happiness and lead toward success. Here are some little habits that can make a big difference:
37 . Many studies have linked early rising with success. An early morning
wake-up carries benefits including better planning and anticipation ( 预 料 ) of problems, and more time to the things that make you happy. 2. Happiness comes to those who are curious. 38 As long as you live, there
will always be something to learn, and as long as you follow your heart and your passions, you won’t miss out on learning. 3. Believe in yourself and all that you are. 39 . Confidence is the key to
success—the thing that lets you look at the past without regret, stay grounded in the present, and prepare for the future without fear. 4. A day well spent gets you a good night sleep. Enough sleep makes you feel healthier and happier, and it’s more than lifting up you or removing exhaustion(疲 惫). Adequate sleep is a key part of your health and inner happiness. 40 .
It doesn’t take a huge effort to make a significant change in your life—using one or two tiny habits may be all you need. Get started today and you’ll soon be experiencing the rewards. A. That’s why habits are so powerful. B. The ground work of all happiness is good health. C. Early to rise makes you healthy, wealthy, and wise. D. The habit of respect means treating everyone with kindness. E. Nothing will ever make you happier than having faith in yourself. F. When you rest better, you can live better and achieve more happiness G. There is no stage in life when we can’t be learning something valuable. 第三部分 英语知识运用（共两节，满分 45 分）

I used to love chocolate, but now I can't stand it unless it's in a cookie. Text 2 W: Hello, I am here to apply for the sales job. Who should I speak to? M: Why don't you talk to our manager Jack? (2) He's the one cleaning the store windows.
Text 3 M: Can I borrow a book? I am a newcomer to the college. W: Sure, but first you :need to have a library card. After that, you can borrow any book. There are many reading rooms here. (3)You can sit where you like to. Text 4 M: Linda is very quiet. But her brother talks too much. W: Yes, you are right. And he isn't friendly either. (4) Text 5 M: I'm starting to worry. The cat hasn't come home yet, and it's getting dark. Should we call her again? W: No need. When she wants to eat, she'll jump :in through the window. (5) Text 6 W: Did you hear about that woman who went missing last weekend? M: Yeah, she was walking her dogs in the forest, and didn't come back. Did she get lost? W: No, she often goes there and knows the forest well. She fell down a hill and broke her leg. (6) She is in hospital right now. M: Wow. How did she survive so long? W: Her two dogs slept beside her to keep her warm. M: That is amazing. I guess that's why people say dogs are "man's best friend". W: I know. A hiker discovered her after he heard the dogs barking. (7) M: Look! I think that is her husband on TV right now. Turn up the volume. Text 7 M: Do you know what I noticed today? I spend more time learning about the past than I do about the present. (8) W: That is why you should start watching the news to get to know the latest events. (8) M: You're right. (8) What is that on TV? W: Firemen are fighting forest fires in Los Angeles right now. (9) M: That looks like something out of a movie.
W: Strange, isn't it? Fires on one side of the country, and snowstorms here in New York, M: What about world news? Anything interesting? W: World leaders are meeting in Paris to discuss climate change. M: That seems appropriate, considering what is happening in the world. When will the sports come on? (10) W: Near the end of the hour, just before the weather report. You should listen to the local news first. (10) Listen! It is about the snowstorm... Text 8 W: I'm stuck! Could you help get my car out of the snow, Mr. Brady? (11) I'm already late for school. M: It's my pleasure, Anne. I was clearing the snow on the sidewalk, anyway. W: So, when do your grandchildren get here? (12) M: My daughter is bringing them down this weekend. (12) That means I only have three days to hang these Christmas lights. W: I bet her kids will love this weather. M: So, when do you get off for the Christmas break? W: Monday. I just have a couple of tests at the end of the week, and I'm done. M: Good for you. Do you have any plans for the holiday? (13) You went to a farm with your friends last year, didn't you? W: Yes. This year, we were planning on going to a ski mountain, but the hotels were all booked. So, we will spend the holiday in the city instead. My aunt is lending me her apartment. (13) M: That is nice of her. OK, it looks like you're ready to go. You step on the gas, and I'll give you a push. W: It worked! Bye, Mr. Brady! Text 9 W: Jeffrey! I'm glad I ran into you. I need some advice. (14) M: No problem, Lili. I was just on my way to the science lab. What can I do for you? (14) W: My neighbor invited me over for dinner tonight. Is there anything I should know
about Western dining traditions? (15) M: We are not too strict about these things, (15) so you needn't worry too much. W: Are you sure? I've heard there are many roles about when to come, what to bring, and how to act. M: OK, so what time did they say you'd be eating dinner? W: She said to come "around five". Does that mean I should come half an hour early, or later? (16) M: It means exactly what she said. (16) W: OK. Do I have to bring gifts? I remember she likes collecting CDs. M: If it was a larger dinner with many people, you could ask to make something. In this case, a bottle of wine is good enough. (17) W: I remember my tutor saying that iii should eat whatever they serve me. M: That's not really true. You may eat whatever you want. Just relax. You'll be fine. W: OK, thanks. I'll let you know how it goes. Text 10 Kate McClure's car ran out of gas one night on her way into Philadelphia. She got out, of her car and started making her way towards the nearest gas station. That's when she met Johnny. Johnny, a homeless man, sat on the side of the road every day, holding a sign. (18) He saw Kate pull over and knew something was wrong. He told Kate to get back in the car and lock the doors. A few minutes later, he came back with a red gas can. He had used his last $20 to help Kate make it home safe Johnny wasn't expecting anything in return, but Kate was determined to pay him back:. She started by stopping by his spot and repaying him for the gas. She gave him a jacket, gloves, a hat, warm socks and $100. However, Kate wanted to do more. So, she created a GoFundMe page to help him out. (19) The donations started pouring in and it quickly went from zero to more than $379,000. It was just less than a week ago that Johnny was sleeping under a bridge. Now, he's been given what he calls a second chance. Johnny said he wanted to change his life. He wanted to give a lot of money away to help others.
