2016 年 3 月湖北文理学院附属中学月考试题 高二英语
第Ⅰ卷 (选择题 共 60 分) Ⅰ.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 When her five daughters were young, Helene An always tol
d them that there was strength in unity(团结). To show this, she held up one chopstick, representing one person. Then she easily broke it into two pieces. Next, she tied several chopsticks together, representing a family. She showed the girls it was hard to break the tied chopsticks. This lesson about family unity stayed with the daughters as they grew up. Helene An and her family own a large restaurant business in California. However, when Helene and her husband Danny left their home in Vietnam in 1975, they didn't have much money. They moved their family to San Francisco. There they joined Danny's mother, Diana, who owned a small Italian sandwich shop . Soon afterwards, Helene and Diana changed the sandwich shop into a small Vietnamese restaurant. The five
daughters helped in the restaurant when they were young. However, Helene did not want her daughters to always work in the family business because she thought it was too hard. Eventually the girls all graduated from college and went away to work for themselves, but one by one, t he daughters returned to work in the family business. They opened new restaurants in San Francisco and Los Angeles. Even though family members sometimes disagreed with each other, they worked together to make the business successful. Daughter Elizabeth explains, “Our mother taught us that to succeed we must have unity, and to have unity we must have peace. Without the strength of the family, there is no business.” Their expanding business became a large corporation in 1996, with three generations of Ans working together. Now the Ans' corporation makes more than $20 million each year. Although they began with a small restaurant, they had big dreams, and they worked together. Now they are a big success. 21. Helene tied several chopsticks together to show ________． A. the strength of family unity B. the difficulty of growing up C. the advantage of chopsticks D. the best way of giving a lesson 22. We can learn from Paragraph 2 that the An family ________． A. started a business in 1975 B. left Vietnam without much money C. bought a restaurant in San Francisco D. opened a sandwich shop in Los Angeles 23 What can we infer about the An daughters? A. They did not finish their college education. B. They could not bear to work in the family business. C. They were influenced by what Helene taught them. D. They were troubled by disagreement among family members. 24. Which of the following can be the best title for the passage? A. How to run a corporation B. Strength comes from peace C. How to achieve a big dream D. Family unity builds success B The boy made it! One Sunday, Nicholas, a teenager, went skiing at Sugarloaf Mountain in Maine. In the early afternoon, when he was planning to go home, a fierce snowstorm swept into the area. Unable to see far, he accidentally turned off the path. Before he knew it, Nicholas was lost, all alone! He didn't have food, water, a phone, or other supplies. He was getting colder by the minute. Nicholas had no idea where he was. He tried not to panic. He thought about all of the survival shows he had watched on TV. It was time to put the tips he had learned to use. He decided to stop skiing. There was a better chance of someone finding him if he stayed put. The first thing he did was to find shelter from the freezing wind and snow. If he didn't, his body temperature would get very low, which could quickly kill him. Using his skis, Nicholas built a snow cave. He gathered a huge mass of snow and
dug out a hole in the middle. Then he piled branches on top o f himself, like a blanket, to stay as warm as he could. By that evening, Nicholas was really hungry. He ate snow and drank water from a nearby stream so that his body wouldn't lose too much water. Not knowing how much longer he could last, Nicholas did the only thing he could—he huddled(蜷缩) in his cave and slept. The next day, Nicholas went out to look for help, but he couldn't find anyone. He followed his tracks and returned to the snow cave, because without shelter, he could die that night. On Tuesday, Nicholas went out again to find help. He had walked f or about a mile when a volunteer searcher found him. After two days stuck in the snow, Nicholas was saved. Nicholas might not have survived this snowstorm had it not been for TV. He had often watched Grylls' survival show Man vs. Wild. That's where he learned the tips that saved his life. In each episode(一期节目) of Man vs. Wild, Grylls is abandoned in a wild area and has to find his way out. When Grylls heard about Nicholas' amazing deeds, he was super impressed that Nicholas had made it since he knew better than anyone how hard Nicholas had to work to stay alive. 25．What happe ned to Nicholas one Sunday afternoon? A．He got lost. B He broke his skis. C．He hurt his eyes. D．He caught a cold. 26．How did Nicholas keep himself warm? A．He found a shelter. B．He lighted some branches. C．He kept on skiing. D．He built a snow cave. 27．On Tuesday, Nicholas ________． A．returned to his shelter safely B．was saved by a searcher C．got stuck in the snow D．stayed where he was 28．Nicholas left Grylls a very deep impression because he ________． A．did the right things in the dangerous situation B．watched Grylls' TV programme regularly C．created some tips for survival D．was very hard?working C Have your parents ever inspected your room to see if you cleaned it properly? Imagine having your entire house, garage, and yard inspected at any time—with no warning. Inspections were a regular part of lighthouse (灯塔) living, and a keeper's reputation depended on the results. A few times each year, an inspector arrived to look over the entire light station. The inspections were supposed to be a surprise, but keepers sometimes had advance notice. Once lighthouses had telephones, keepers would call each other to warn that the inspector was approaching. After boats began flying special flags noting the inspector was aboard, the keeper's family made it a game to see who could notice the boat first. As soon as someone spotted the boat, everyone would do last?minute tidying and change into fancy clothes. The keeper then scurried to put on his dress uniform and cap. Children of keepers remember inspectors wearing white gloves to run their fingers over door frames and windowsills looking for dust.
Despite the serious nature of inspections, they resulted in some funny moments. Betty Byrnes remembered when her mother did not have time to wash all the dishes before an inspection. At the time, people did not have dishwashers in their homes. In an effort to clean up quickly, Mrs Byrnes tossed all the dishes into a big bread pan, covered them with a cloth, and stuck them in the oven. If the inspector opened the oven door, it would look like bread was baking. He never did. One day, Glenn Furst's mother put oil on the kitchen fl oor just before the inspector entered their house. Like floor wax, the oil made the floors shiny and helped protect the wood. This time, though, she used a little too much oil. When the inspector extended his hand to greet Glenn's mother, he slipped on the freshly oiled surface. “He came across that floor waving his arms like a young bird attempting its first flight，” Glenn later wrote. After he steadied himself, he shook Glenn's mother's hand, and the inspection continued as though nothing had happened. 29. What does Paragraph 1 tell us about the inspection at the light station? A. It was carried out once a year. B. It was often announced in advance. C. It was important for the keeper's fame. D. It was focused on the garage and yard. 30 The family began making preparations immediately after ________． A. one of the members saw the boat B. a warning call reached the lighthouse C. the keeper put on the dress uniform and cap D. the inspector flew special flags in the distance 31. Mrs Byrnes put the dishes in the oven because this would ________． A. result in some fun B. speed up washing them C. make her home look tidy D. be a demand from the inspector 32 If the inspector had opened the oven door, he would have seen ________. A. an empty pan B. many clean dishes C. pieces of baked bread D. a cloth covering something D My colour television has given me nothing but a headache. I was able to buy it a little over a year ago because I had my relatives give me money for my birthday instead of a lot of clothes that wouldn't fit. I let a salesclerk fool me into buying a discontinued model. I realized this a day later， when I saw newspaper advertisements for the set at seventy?five dollars less than I had paid. The set worked so beautifully when I first got it home that I would keep it on until stations signed off for the night. Fortunately, I didn't get any channels showi ng all?night movies or I would never have gotten to bed. Then I started developing a problem with the set that involved static(静电) noise. For some reason，when certain shows switched into a commercial, a loud noise would sound for a few seconds. Gradually，this noise began to appear during a show, and to get rid of it，I had to change to another channel and then change it back. Sometimes this technique would not work，and I had to pick up the set and shake it to remove the sound. I actually began to build up my arm muscles(肌肉) shaking my set. When neither of these methods removed the static noise，I would sit helplessly
and wait for the noise to go away. At last I ended up hitting the set with my fist， and it stopped working altogether. My trip to the repair shop cost me $62, and the set is working well now，but I keep expecting more trouble. 33．Why did the author say he was fooled into buying the TV set? A．He got an older model than he had expected. B．He couldn't return it when it was broken. C．He could have bought it at a lower price. D．He failed to find any mov ie shows on it. 34． Which of the following can best replace the phrase “signed off” in Paragraph 1? A．ended all their programmes B．provided fewer channels C．changed to commercials D．showed all?night movies 35．How did the author finally get his TV set working again? A．By shaking and hitting it. B．By turning it on and off. C．By switching channels. D．By having it repaired. 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。 Different cultures The cultures of the East and the West really distinguish each other a lot.36.________ The origin of the Eastern cultures is mainly from two countries: China and India. Both of the two cultures are deve loped by rivers—the Yellow River in China and the Indus River in India. 37.________ When the two mother rivers gave birth to the Eastern culture, another famous culture was brought up on the Mesopotamian Plain—the Mesopotamian Civilization. This civilization later on developed into the cultures of Ancient Greece and Ancient Rome.38.________ Like the Chinese culture, the European culture als o crossed waters. When the British settled down in America, their culture went with them over the Atlantic Ocean. So the American culture doesn't distinguish from the European culture a lot. 39．________ Take the language system for example. In the East, most languages belong to the pictographic language while the Western languages are mostly based on the Latin system. Other causes like human race difference counts as well. But what's more, due to the far distance and the steep, areas between the East and West, the two cultures seldom communicate until recent centuries. So they grew up totally in their own ways with almost no interference(干扰) from the other. These differences are everywhere. 40.________ But different cultures make the world of 21st century more colourful. The cultural gap should not be the obstacle (障碍) to the civilization of human being. It ought to be the motivation of our going farther. A．Let us work together to keep a variety of culture. B．One important thing is to learn about other cultures.
C．And these two are well known as the base of the European culture. D．At the same time, some other differences add to the cultural differences. E．This is because the culture systems are two separate systems on the whole. F．They helped the two cultures develop for centuries and form their own styles. G．They are obvious and affect people's ways of thinking and their views of the world. Ⅱ.完形填空(共 20 小题；每小题 1 分，满分 20 分) A welcome gift Dario and his mother loved their new apartment.

I wanted to do anything special for him at his retirement party. My mum makes the better biscuits in the world，so I decide to ask her for help. Mum taught me some basic step of baking. I insisted on doing most of the baking myself. I thought the biscuits were really well. My only mistake was that I dropped some on the floor after I was packing them up. At a party, my coach，with a biscuit in his mouth, asked surprisingly who made them and joked，“I might have to retire again next year just get some more of these biscuits.” My favourite picture at the party is of my coach and me enjoy the biscuits with happy laughter!

己深夜弹琴吵醒邻居，仍然欠邻居一个道歉。 owe 亏欠；give 给予；send 发送；offer 提 供。 56．A 根据上下文可知，他们弹琴时没意识到(realize)时间有多晚。remember 记 住；understand 理解；accept 接受。 57．D 根据此空前的“?‘Just not so loud at night.’”以及上文“?‘Maybe we should play some quieter music at night.’”可推断邻居赠送的书里的音乐应该不是特 别吵的音乐。sweet 甜的，甜美的；strange 奇怪的；funny 有趣的。 58．C 双方和解了，而且 Dario 的妈妈说：“这些歌曲都是美妙的音乐(These songs are beautiful music?)”，故 Dario 和妈妈应该很高兴在傍晚弹奏这些(柔和的)音乐。 happy 高兴的；brave 勇敢的；sorry 抱歉的，遗憾的；afraid 担心的，害怕的。 59．B 根据语境，Mrs Gilbert 送给他们一本有关音乐的书，他们乐于接受，那么接 下来应该是期待着去练习新曲了。practise 练习；change 改变；record 记录；write 写。 60．C 文章中出现了“the big smile on his mother's face”和“?feel that they were home?”等，故可以推断美好的邻里关系给新搬来的居民带来了温暖的感觉。warmth 温暖；equality 平等；freedom 自由；sympathy 同情。 Ⅳ. 语法填空 61/to learn 62 because 63 do 64 a 65 but 66 to 67 asking 68 speaking 69 until 70 were
