第三部分：阅读理解（共两节，满分 40 分） 第一节： （共 15 小题；每小题 2 分，满分 30 分） A One day, Mr. Arnold was teaching a lesson, and things were going as normally as ever. He was explaining the story of mankind to his pupils. He told them that, in the beginning, men were nomads; they never stayed in the same place for very long. Instead, they would travel ab out, here and there, in search of food, wherever it was to be found. And when the food ran out, they would
move off somewhere else. He taught them about the invention of farming and keeping animals. This was an important discovery, because by learning to cultivate(耕作)the land, and care for animals, mankind would always have food steadily available. It also meant that people could remain living in one place, and this made it easier to set about tasks that would take a long while to complete, like building towns, cities, and all that were in them. All the children were listening attracted by this story, until Lucy jumped up: “And if that was so important and improved everything so much, why are we nomads all over again, Mr. Arnold?” Mr. Arnold didn’t know what to say. Lucy was a very intelligent girl. He knew that she lived with her parents in a house, so she must know that her family were not nomads; so what did she mean? “We have all become nomads again,” continued Lucy, “The other day, outside the city, they were cutting the forest down. A while ago a fisherman told me how they fish. It’s the same with everyone: when there’s no more forest left the foresters go elsewhere, and when the fish run out the fishermen move on. That’s what the nomads did, isn’t it ? The teacher nodded, thoughtfully. Really, Lucy was right Mankind had turned into nomads. Instead of looking after the land in a way that we could be sure it would keep supplying our needs, we kept developing it until the land was bare. And then off we would go to the next place! The class spent the rest of the afternoon talking about what they could do to show how to be more civilized. The next day everyone attended class wearing a green T-shirt, with a message that said “I am not a nomad!” And , from then on, they set about showing that indeed they were not. Every time they knew they needed something, they made sure that they would get it using care and control. If they needed wood or paper, they would make sure that they got the recycled kind. They ordered their fish from fish farms, making sure that the fish they received were not too young and too small. They only used animals that were well cared for, and brought up on farms. And so, from their little town, those children managed to give up being nomads again, just as prehistoric men had done, so many thousands of years ago. 56. From Paragraph 2, we can know that ______ . A. people got tired of living in the same place B. people gradually got used to living in cities C. people tended to settle down after learning farming D. people spent a long time in learning to keep animals 57. In the teacher’s opinion, Lucy’s argument was ______ A. shocking B. ridiculous C. puzzling D. reasonable 58. Which of the following agrees with the message “I am not a nomad” (Paragraph 7)? A. People eat young fish for its delicious taste. B. Foresters leave the place where wood is not available. C. Fishermen move elsewhere when there is no fish left. D. People use recycled materials as much as possible. 59. The writer tries to make us believe that ______. A. mankind has been progressing mainly through traveling about
B. it’s unwise for mankind to use the land in an uncontrolled way C. it’s quite good for students to learn more about the history of mankind D. in the beginning men were nomads. B Has Tiger Mom gone soft? One year after the release of her book, "Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother," Amy Chua is back in the spotlight, reflecting on how overnight infamy（恶名）affected her life, her family and her parenting. "I've changed a lot," she told The Huffington Post. "In October, we had 30 kids at our house! We've hosted parties with lots of food and music." Last January, the Wall Street Journal published an excerpt（节选）from Chua's book with the headline "Why Chinese Mothers Are Superior." In the excerpt, Chua described how her daughters were never allowed to have sleepovers（在外过夜的儿童聚会）, appear in school plays, earn any grade lower than an A . Chua, an author and professor at Yale Law School, spent much of 2011 on the defensive. In fact, many of her interviews seemed to lend fuel to her critics' fire. Now, with the book out in paperback（简装）,she said, "I put passages in the book and used very harsh words that I regret. Everybody has those moments you wish you could take back." Many of the scenes she described in the book are a far cry from the child-raising methods she advocates. For those who still read "Battle Hymn" as an advice guide, Chua argues that so-called tiger parenting should be employed mainly during a child's early years, ideally between the ages of 5 and 12. These "super-strict parenting methods" are not meant for all ages. Remaining strict after middle school makes you a helicopter parent, according to Chua. And she is quick to point out how different that is from being a tiger mom. "By the time kids get to high school, helicopter parents are hiring all these tutors, carrying their kids' sports bags. I never checked older daughter Sophia's papers because I knew she knew how to sit down and focus," Chua said. As for younger daughter Lulu, 15, the rebel for whom the book was written, Chua has really backed off. Instead of forcing Lulu to practice violin for hours a day -- the source of their biggest fights, Chua "let her give that up". "My compromise is that I'm going to still be as strict academically, but in exchange she has a lot of social freedom. Lulu has had four sleepovers in the last two months!" Chua said. "Chua predicts she'll only get more easygoing with age. 60. From Paragraph 1 we can know that after the publication of the book_____. A. Tiger Mom became stricter with her children B. Tiger Mom was thought highly by the public C. Tiger Mom’s life and family were influenced D. Tiger Mom became wealthy and easygoing 61. What does the passage mainly tell us? A. Tiger Mom has changed and wants to be soft. B. Tiger Mom persuaded readers to follow her example. C. How Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother came out. D. How Tiger Mom became the worldwide spotlight. 62. What does the underlined phrase “a far cry from” in Paragraph 4 mean?
A. similar to from
B. just the same as
C. very different from
D. a cry far
63. What is the writer’s attitude towards Tiger Mom? A. supportive B. opposed C. unconcerned C Sunny countries are often poor. A shame, then, that solar power is still quite expensive. Eight19, a British company by Cambridge University, has, however, invented a novel way to get round this. In return for a deposit of around $10 it is supplying poor Kenyan families with a solar cell able to generate 2.5 watts of electricity, a battery that can deliver a three amp （安培） current to store this electricity, and a lamp whose bulb is a light-emitting diode（二极管）.The firm thinks that this system, once the battery is fully charged, is enough to light two small rooms and to power a mobile-phone charger for seven hours. Then, next day, it can be put outside and charged back up again. The trick is that, to be able to use the electricity, the system's keeper must buy a scratch card—for as little as a dollar—on which is printed a reference number. The keeper sends this reference, plus the serial number of the household solar unit, by SMS to Eight19. The company's server will respond automatically with an access code to the unit. Users may consider that they are paying an hourly rate for their electricity. In fact, they are paying off the cost of the unit. After buying around $80 worth of scratch cards—which Eight19 expects would take the average family around 18 months—the user will own it. He will then have the option of continuing to use it for nothing, or of trading it in for a bigger one, perhaps driven by a 10-watt solar cell. In that case, he would go then through the same process again, paying off the additional cost of the upgraded kit at a slightly higher rate. Users would therefore increase their electricity supply steadily and affordably. According to Eight19's figures, this looks like a good deal for customers. The firm believes the average energy-starved Kenyan spends around $10 a month on oil—enough to fuel a couple of smoky lamps—plus $2 on charging his mobile phone in the market-place. Regular users of one of Eight19's basic solar units will spend around half that, before owning it completely. Meanwhile, as the cost of solar technology falls, it should get even cheaper. 64. What should the user do when the electricity in the battery is used up? A. Recharge it outside. C. Return it to the company. cell? A. Around $10. B. Around $80. C. Around $180. D. Around $90. 66. It can be inferred from the last paragraph that ________. A. Kenyan families would find it difficult to afford the solar cell B. the company will make a great profit from selling solar cells C. few Kenyan families use mobile phones for lack of electricity D. using the solar cell would help Kenyan families save money 67. What might be the most suitable title for the passage? A. Solar Energy: Starting from Scratch. B. Eight19: a creative British Company. B. Buy another solar cell. D. Buy a scratch card. D. objective
65. How much would users pay for the cell and scratch cards before they own a 2.5-watt solar
C. Kenyan Families: Using Solar Energy for Free. D. Poor Countries: Beginning to Use Solar Energy. D Happiness is contagious (有感染力的), as researchers reported on Thursday. People with the most social connections — spouses, friends, neighbors and relatives — were also the happiest, the data showed. “Each additional happy person makes you happier,” Christakis said. “Imagine that I am connected to you and you are connected to others and others are connected to still others. It is this fabric of humanity, like an American patch quilt.” Each pe rson sits on a different colored patch. “Imagine that these patches are happy and unhappy patches. Your happiness depends on what is going on in the patch around you,” Christakis said. “It is not just happy people connecting with happy people, which they do. Above and beyond, there is this contagious process going on.” And happiness is more contagious than unhappiness, they discovered. “If a social contact is happy, it increases the likelihood that you are happy by 15 percent, ” Fowler said. “A friend of a friend, or the friend of a spouse or a sibling (兄弟姐妹), if they are happy, increases your chances by 10 percent,” he added. A happy third degree friend — the friend of a friend of a friend — increases a person’s chances of being happy by 6 percent. “But every extra unhappy friend increases the likelihood that you’ll be unhappy by 7 percent,” Fowler said. The finding is interesting and it is useful, too, Fowler said. “Among other benefits, happiness has been shown to have an important effect on reduced mortality (死亡率), pain reduction, and improved cardiac (心脏的) function. So better understanding of how happiness spreads can help us learn how to develop a healthier society,” he said. The study also fits in with other data suggested in 1984 that having $ 5,000 extra increased a person’s chances of becoming happier by about 2 percent. “A happy friend is worth about $ 20,000,” Christakis said. 68. It can be inferred that________. A. happiness spreads as fast and widely as unhappiness B. unhappiness spreads faster and more widely than happiness C. happiness spreads faster and more widely than unhappiness D. the spread of unhappiness has not been studied by researchers 69. Which of the following will increase your chances of becoming happier most? A. Being in a party with a happy atmosphere. B. A happy experience of your brother or your parents. C. A happy trip to a foreign country of your friends. D. Happiness of your friend’s friend. 70. What does Christakis mean by saying “A happy friend is worth about $ 20,000”? A. A happy friend can help you bring in a wealth of $ 20,000. B. A happy friend is a wealth which is worth about $ 20,000.
C. A happy friend increases your chances of being happy by 2%. D. A happy friend increases your chances of being happy by 8 %. 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。 What is a big dream? 71 Or, is a big dream something that provides only entertainment? Children dream big dreams, but there a re three barriers to realizing dreams. They often kill them before they ever have a chance to grow. The Self Immediately following the birth of a big dream, a negative self-talk takes over and gives all the reasons why it cannot happen. This inside voice is the ego(自我). It’s there for protecting and should be listened to. 72 Most people are influenced by the inside voice. That’s why only a handful of people make their dream come true. 73 Family and friends are a lot like the ego. They want to protect those they love, so they will often list all the reasons why the big dreams won’t come true. Sometimes, family and friends destroy dreams of those they love most, out of their own fear of being left behind. The World If one gets past the first two barriers, one has to face the world. 74 In the past, big dreamers were locked up and sometimes even killed when they were shown to the world. Fortunately, in most of the world today, big dreamers just get laughed at. The way to realize a big dream is with confidence and action. When children have confidence and then take action, they will be ready to accept any failure. The truth is that every great dreamer whose dreams have never seen the light of success knows failure well. 75 A. How Big Dreams Die B. Family and Friends C. Sometimes it is right, but more often it is wrong. D. Does a big dream show one’s future? E. It is the last and the most terrible barrier. F. And their big dream is to be a rock star or a famous artist. G. They simply fail until they succeed.

It is well-known that bird flu has spread through many countries. People have taken some measure s to prevent it. Some think it is necessary to kill all the poultry and birds. At present it is only a good way to preve nt the deadly virus from spreading and harming people’s health. The more the virus spreads, the mor e difficult it is to conquer it. However, others think it is unfair and awfully cruel to do so just for the benefit of human beings. Finding vaccines as quickly as possible is the most important thing. As far as I concerned, catching and killing birds is not necessary. It may cause the birds to die out. Also, birds are friends to us human beings.
