When Roy, the manager, had to leave for a few days, he put Rogers in charge. "What if the workers refuse to follow my orders?" Rogers asked. He thought of Tony, a worker who was always giving the other men a hard time. "Fire them," Roy said. Then, as if reading Rogers’ mind, he added, "I suppose you want to fire Tony if you get the chance. I’d feel bad about that. Tony is the most reliable worker I’ve ever had. I know he complains a lot, but he comes first and leaves last. There has not been an accident on the hill where he works for eight years." Rogers took over the manager’s job the next day. He went to Tony and spoke to him, "Tony, did you know that I’m in charge today?" Tony didn’t show any respect or interest. "I was going to fire you because you once gave me a hard time, but I want you to know I’m not," he told Tony, adding what Roy had said. When Rogers finished, tears streamed down Tony’s face. That day Tony worked harder than ever before —and he smiled for the first time! Rogers went back to school after that summer. Twelve years later he met Tony again. He was in charge of one of the largest logging companies in the West. Rogers asked him how he managed to become so successful. Tony replied, "If it were not for that time you spoke to me back in Idaho, I would not be myself today. That one minute changed my whole life." Have you got one minute to appreciate someone? It can make a difference for a lifetime. 51 Which of the following statements about Tony is TRUE? A He never showed respect to his co-workers. B. He worked hard but he always complained. C. Nobody liked Tony because of his bad temper. D. He didn’t care about his work. 52. The manager’s attitude towards Tony is _____. A. strict B. satisfied C. doubtful D. unsatisfied 53. Rogers changed his mind and didn’t fire Tony because _______. A. he learned more about Tony’s work B. Tony smiled at him C. Roy didn’t give him the power to fire anyone D. Tony didn’t give him a hard time anymore 54. What can we learn from Tony’s success? A. It’s never too late to learn. B. It’s necessary to work with a wise boss. C. It’s important to recognize others’ good qualities. D. Well begun is half done. B Books, software, and videos, no matter what you are looking for, if you turn on a computer and log (登录) on the Internet, you are sure to find something. E-books are all over the Internet; some are free, and some are not. E-books are basically electronic books you can read without having to carry heavy books and flip through (翻阅) all the pages. Now authors not only sell regular books in bookstores but also sell e-books on the Internet. Some e-books are sold on CDs, too. You can get all types of software right from the Internet. After you download it, you have it. It is so convenient that you can get it even without leaving the house. These are the advantages we have in today’s high-tech world. We can find videos of different people. There are so many websites with videos that it

would take you some time to actually go through them all. The cool thing about videos is that some people have their own websites or their own spaces where they can upload videos of their families or of different events and allow other people to view them. It is amazing. The Internet is an exciting place and it plays a big part in our lives today. You can even pay your bills on the Internet if that’s what you want to do. The marketing industry is also doing a lot better because of the Internet. Companies can communicate very quickly with each other over the Internet. 55. What can we know from the second paragraph? A. People are free to read e-books on the Internet. B. People prefer e-books to paper books. C. Some people sell e-books on CDs. D. Some authors sell e-books in bookstores. 56.

He came to Georgetown University on a scholarship to study medicine—but Coach John Thompson got a look at Dikembe and had a different idea. Dikembe became a star in the NBA, and a citizen of the United States. But he never forgot the land of his birth, or the duty to share his fortune with others. He built a new hospital in his old hometown in the Congo. A friend has said of this goodhearted man: “ Mutombo believes that God has given him this chance to do great things.” Success and kindness After her daughter was born, Julie Aigner-Clark searched for ways to share her love of music and art with her child. So she borrowed some equipment, and began filming children’s videos in her own house. The Baby Einstein Company was born, and in just five years her business grew to more than $20 million in sales. And she is using her success to help others—producing child safety videos with John Walsh of the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. Julie says of her new program: “ I believe it’s the most important thing that I have ever done. I believe that children have the right to live in a world that is safe.” Bravery and courage A few weeks ago, Wesley Autrey was waiting at a Harlen subway station with his two little girls when he saw a man fall into the path of a train. With seconds to act, Wesley jumped onto the tracks, pulled the man into the space between the rails, and held him as the train passed right above their heads. He insists he’s not a hero. He says: “ We have got to show each other some love.” 59. What was Mutombo praised for? A. His work in the church B. Being a student of medicine C. His willingness to help the needy D. Being a star in the NBA

60. Mutombo believes that building the new hospital is __________. A. something he should do for his homeland B. helpful to his personal development C. a chance for his friends to share his money D. a way of showing his respect to the NBA 61. What did the Baby Einstein Company do at its beginning? A . Sell children’s music and artwork B. Make videos to make Julie’s own daughter famous C. Produce safety equipment for children D. Look for missing and exploited children 62. Why was Wesley Autrey praised as a hero? A. He helped a man get across the rails. B. He stopped a man from destroying the rails. C. He protected two little girls from getting hurt. D. He saved a person without considering his own safety. D In the computer age, most of us take a broadband (宽带) Internet connection for granted. Whether cable or mobile broadband, today’s connections are many times faster than those in the early days. Videos play smoothly, complex websites load quickly, and files download much faster than ten years ago. And the files are much bigger too. There’s a catch, of course: You have to live near enough to a major city to get broadband Internet. If you don’t, it’s slow dial-up access for you. And for those living really far out, there may be no Internet access at all. Technology experts often talk about the “last mile” problem, which refers to the difficulty of bringing Internet access to remote locations. In cities and suburbs, it’s relatively easy to provide access for everyone. It is much more difficult to deliver access to those living far from cities, especially in developing countries. Internet service providers, for their part, have been reluctant to provide access to sparsely populated(人口稀疏地) areas. The handful of Internet users they would reach wouldn’t cover the expense. But every year, technological advancements allow of more and more Internet users. Most broadband connections today run over existing cable TV and telephone lines although these technologies aren’t available everywhere. Some companies have delivered the Internet over standard power lines. Advancements in cheaper, more efficient fiber optics cables (光纤电缆) promise to bring extremely fast Internet connections to more users. Still, the “last mile” problem remains hard to deal with. There will always be somewhere that doesn’t have an affordable broadband connection. But someday that might not matter. If the rapid progress in cell phone technology is any indication (迹象), it may not be too long before an Internet connection simply follows you wherever you go. 63. The underlined part “a catch” (in Paragraph 2) probably means “_____”. A.a rare challenge B. a hidden problem C.an efficient device D.a desirable plan 64. What can we know from the third paragraph? A.Internet connection has not been popular in most cities. B.Internet service providers care about rural(农村的)customers. C. It is hard to bring Internet access to users in remote areas. D.Computer is popular in developing countries. 65. What may eventually settle the “last mile” problem? A.More and more Internet users. B. The rapid progress in cell phone technology. C.More and more Internet connections. D.The broadband connection’s getting faster. 第二节 (共 5 小题;每小题 2 分,满分 10 分) 阅读下列短文,从每题所给的四个选项(A、B、C、D、E、F 和 G)中,选出最佳选项, 并在答题卡上将该项涂黑。

Money Matters Parents should help children understand money. 66 So you may start talking about money when your child shows an interest in buying things, candy or toys, for example. 1. The basic function of money Begin explaining the basic function of money by showing how people trade money for goods or services. It’s important to show your child how money is traded for the thing he wants to have. If he wants to have a toy, give him the money and let him hand the money to the cashier (收银员). 67 When your child grows a bit older and understands the basic function of money, you can start explaining more complex ways of using money. 2. Money lessons Approach money lessons with openness and honesty. 68 If you must say no to a child’s request to spend money, explain, “You have enough toy trucks for now.” Or, if the request is for many different things, say, “You have to make a choice between this toy and that toy.” 3. 69 Begin at the grocery store. Pick out two similar brands of a product — a name-brand butter and a generic (无商标产品), for example. You can show your child how to make choices between different brands of a product so that you can save money, 70 If he chooses the cheaper brand, allow him to buy other things with the money saved. Later, you may explain how the more expensive choice leaves less money for other purchases. A. Wise decisions B. The value of money C. Permit the child to choose between them. D. Tell your child why he can—or cannot—have certain things. E. Ask yourself what things that cost money are most important to you. F. Talk about how the money bought the thing after you leave the toy store. G. The best time to teach a child anything about money is when he shows an interest. 第二卷(共 35 分) 第四部分 第一节:单词拼写。 根据所给单词的首字母或汉语提示,写出单词的正确形 式。(每小题一分,共 10 分) 71.Some policemen a________ their power to do some things that are against our country’s law . 72.last week our sports meeting was p________ because of the heavy rain . 73.
