Johnson nodded his smooth, dark head. That was something he knew very well. “I?ve never seen anything like it,” the manager admitted. Johnson nodded again. “No?” he said politely. Then he added, “But I think you will, sir. A very great deal of it.” He appeared to think for a moment. “I think you will find it will be on sale seven, perhaps, eight years from now.” He smiled. The manager thought that was uncertain. He said, “It is better than our fish oils. I admit that.” “So I am told, sir,” agreed Johnson. “Have you any plans to produce it yourself, Mr. Johnson?” “Would I be showing it to you if I had?” Johnson smiled again. “We might add some chemicals to one of our own fish oils,” said the manager. “It would be expensive to do that, even if you could,” Johnson said gently. “Besides,” he added, “I am told that this oil will be much cheaper than your best fish oils. Cheaper than any vegetable oil, in fact.” “Perhaps,” said the manager. “Well, I suppose you want to make an arrangement, Mr. Johnson. Shall we discuss it?”
“Of course,” said Johnson. “There are two ways of dealing with a situation of this sort. The usual one is to prevent it altogether or at least to delay it as long as possible. That is, of course, the best way.” The manager nodded. He knew plenty about all that. “But I am so sorry for you, because, you see, that is not possible this time.” The manager had his dou bts, but all he said was an inquiring(asking), “Oh?” “The other way,” continued Johnson, “is to produce yourself before the trouble starts.” 60.

D In modern society there is a great deal of argument about competition. Some value it highly, believing that it is responsible for social progress and prosperity. Others say that competition is bad; that it sets one person against another; that it leads to unfriendly relationship between people. I have taught many children who held the belief that their selfworth relied on how well they performed at tennis and other skills. For them, playing well and winning are often lifeanddeath affairs. In their singleminded pursuit of success, the development of many other human qualities is sadly forgotten. However, while some seem to be lost in the desire to succeed, others take an opposite attitude. In a culture which values only the winner and pays no attention to the ordinary players, they strongly blame competition. Among the most vocal are youngsters who have suffered under competitive pressures from their parents or society. Teaching these young people, I often observe in them a desire to fail. They seem to seek failure by not trying to win or achieve success. By not trying, they always have an excuse: “I may have lost, but it doesn't matter because I really didn't try.” What is not usually admitted by themselves is the belief that if they had really tried and lost, that would mean a lot. Such a loss would be a measure of their worth. Clearly, this belief is the same as that of the true competitors who try to prove themselves. Both are based on the mistaken belief that one's selfrespect relies on how well one performs in comparison with others. Both are afraid of not being valued. Only as this basic and often troublesome fear begins to dissolve can we discover a new meaning in competition. 67. What does this passage mainly talk about? A. Competition helps to set up selfrespect. B. Opinions about competition are different among people. C. Competition is harmful to personal quality development. D. Failures are necessary experiences in competition. 68. The underlined phrase “the most vocal” in Paragraph 3 means ________. A. those who try their best to win B. those who value competition most highly C. those who are against competition most strongly D. those who rely on others most for success 69. What is the similar belief of the true competitors and those with a “desire to fail”？
A. One's worth lies in his performance compared with others'. B. One's success in competition needs great efforts. C. One's achievement is determined by his particular skills. D. One's success is based on how hard he has tried. 70. Which point of view may the author agree to? A. Every effort should be paid back. B. Competition should be encouraged. C. Winning should be a lifeanddeath matter. D. Fear of failure should be removed in competition. E Using a Mobile Phone to Improve Mother and Child Health People around the world are working to expand the uses for mobile technology in health care. In the world, there are six billion mobile phone users in a population of seven billion people. 71 Africa has widespread adoption. Three or four years ago the penetration（进入;使用） rates were 20 percent or 30 percent, and now they're getting upwards of 60 percent in some countries. 72 Earlier research has been to look at mobile technologies and HIV and AIDS. And so we have some great evidence on the effectiveness of mobiles. During the first week of December, 2012, more than 4,000 people from 50 countries met for the fourth annual mHealth Summit. It brought together experts from what the organizers call the mHealth ecosystem. In 2011 Secretary of State Hillary Clinton started a public/private partnership called the Mobile Alliance for Maternal Action, or MAMA. There are about 800 women a day and about three million babies a year die from pregnancy and childbirthrelated causes. 73 The messages cover pregnancy and the first year of a baby's life. These health messages may also be sent to a pregnant woman's husband and motherinlaw. 74 Messages can be text or voicemail. You can have a pregnant woman in Bangladesh registered into a system that provides messages that help her know what to do and when to do certain things. Simple text messages can be important sources of information to people without Internet access. 75 They have to be able to read through thousands of entries that come back to them on Google, for example, and then figure out what that information means to them. And that's not something that someone in a poor and uneducated kind of situation can do. A．They have no access to the relevant information. B．That way they too can understand what needs to be done. C．Millions of messages about baby care are received every day. D．A lot of work has been done to use mobile technology for health. E．And the most rapidly growing markets are those in developing countries. F．The program sends messages to women to educate them about their health. G．Besides, online users may sometimes not understand all the information available. 第二卷（共二部分，共计 35 分） 第一节：短文改错(共 10 小题；每小题 1 分，满分 10 分) It's reported that many people died of traffic accidents each year. Road safety has aroused the widely attention of the public. Many rules have made to reduce the traffic crashes, especially for the ones involved in the pedestrians. In my opinion, we should make road safety seriously in our daily life. While used the road, we must walk on the pavement and learn to protect us. Besides, car drivers should obey the traffic rules, that is
both good for themselves and others. In the word, obeying the traffic rules are what all of us should pay attention to particularly. After all, life is not a small matter. 英语试题 第一节 单项填空 (共 15 小题；每小题 1 分，满分 15 分) 21. Of all the subjects, I like___ history best because it gives us___ useful knowledge of things in the past.

Much meaning can be conveyed with our eyes, so it is often said that eyes can speak. Do you have such kind of 36 ? In a bus you may look at a 37 , but not too long. And if he is 38 that he is being stared at, he may feel 39 . The same is in 40 life. If you are looked at for more than 41 , you will look at yourself up and down, to see if there is 42 wrong with you. If nothing goes wrong, you will feel angry toward others? 43 at you that way. Looking too long at someone may seem to be rude and 44 . But things are different when it 45 to stare at the opposite sex. If a man glances at a woman for more than 10 seconds and 46 to turn away his gaze, his intentions are 47 , that is, he wishes to attract her attention, to make her understand that he is 48 her. 49 , the normal eye contact for two people 50 in a conversation is that the speaker will only look at the listener 51 , in order to make sure that the listener does pay attention to what the former is speaking about, to tell him that he is attentive. If a speaker looks at you continuously when speaking, 52 he tries to control you, you will feel embarrassing. In fact, continuous eye contact is confined to 53 only, who will enjoy looking at each other tenderly for a long time, to show affection that 54 cannot express.

A man goes shopping because he needs something. His purpose is settled and decided in advance. He knows what he wants, and his objective is to find it and buy it; the price is a secondary consideration. All men simply walk into a shop and
ask the assistant for what they want. If the shop has it in stock(有现货的), the salesman promptly produces it, and the business of trying it on follows at once. All being well, the deal can be and often is completed in less than five minutes, with hardly any chat and to everyone's satisfaction. For a man, slight problems may begin when the shop does not have what he wants, or does not have exactly what he wants. In that case the salesman, as the name implies, tries to sell the customer something else, he offers the nearest to the article required. No good salesman brings out such a substitute impolitely; he does so with skill: “I know this jacket is not the style you want, sir, but would you like to try it for size? It happens to be the color you mentioned.” Few men have patience with this treatment, and the usual response is: “This is the right color and may be the right size, but I should be wasting my time and yours by trying it on.” Now how does a woman go about buying clothes? In almost every respect she does so in the opposite way. Her shopping is not often based on need. She has never fully made up her mind what she wants, and she is only “having a look round”. She is always open to persuasion; indeed she sets great store by what the saleswoman tells her, even by what companions tell her. She will try on any number of things. Uppermost in her mind is the thought of finding something that everyone thinks suits her. Contrary to a lot of jokes, most women have an excellent sense of value when they buy clothes. They are always on the lookout for the unexpected bargain. Faced with a roomful of dresses, a woman may easily spend an hour going from one rail to another, to and fro, often retracing her steps, before selecting the dresses she wants to try on. It is a laborious process, but apparently an enjoyable one. Most dress shops provide chairs for the waiting husbands. 56. The underlined sentence “the price is a secondary consideration” in the first paragraph means when a man is shopping ______. A. he buys good quality things, so long as they are not too dear B. he buys whatever he likes without considering its value C. he does not mind how much he has to pay for the right things D. he often buys things without giving the matter proper thought. 57. According to the passage, what a man will do when he can not get exactly what he wants? A. He will buy a similar thing because of the color he wants. B. He will probably not buy anything. C. At least two of his requirements must be met before he buys. D. So long as the style is right, he will buy the thing. 58. What is the most obvious difference between men and women shoppers? A. Men do not try clothes on in a shop while women do. B. Women bargain for their clothes, but men do not. C. The time they take over buying clothes. D. Men go shopping based on need, but women never. B Chicken feathers are useful, and not just to a chicken. Some go into pillows, coats and other products. But countless chicken feathers go to waste. In the United States, billions of chickens are produced yearly. Most of their feathers are thrown away. But instead of being buried in land, some feathers could find a future in plastics. One of the products they have developed is a flowerpot （花盆） . It may look like other flowerpots. But the container breaks down in the earth within one to five years. And as it breaks down, it naturally becomes nutrient in the soil. The environmentally friendly flowerpot is the work of two researchers. Walter Schmidt is with the
Agricultural Research Service, part of the United States Agriculture Department. Masud Huda is with the Horticultural Research Institute, a private organization. Walter Schmidt has been working to find uses for chicken feathers since the 1990s. Progress in 2002 showed that plastic made from feathers could be formed like other plastics. He says feathers are much stronger and last longer than another plant material. "Feathers are stronger. By design, feathers are also more durable（耐用的）. And the other part about it is if feathers were twice as heavy, or half as strong, then birds couldn't fly." He points out that traditional flowerpots made from other plastics can last much longer. But he wonders if there is really a need. He says most flowerpots are never re-used. "Why would you want a plastic that you use for a year to last for two hundred years? It makes no sense. You want to match the product with the use." said Walter Schmidt. Walter Schmidt and Masud Huda are now adding another chicken product to their flowerpots —chicken waste. The waste will add more nutrients to the soil as the pot breaks down. The scientists say they hope their flowerpot will be on the market in a year or two. 59. What do people mainly deal with feathers? A. Feathers are used to make pillows, coats and other products. B. Most feathers are paid no attention to. C. Most feathers are used as nutrient. D. Most feathers are used to make flowerpots. 60. What?s the advantage of the flowerpots? A. They won?t last long. B. They can?t break. C. They are environmentally friendly. D. They can be reused. 61. What does Walter Schmidt think of traditional flowerpots? A. Too heavy. B. Too old. C. Never re-used. D. Lasting longer but unnecessary. 62. What do you think is the main idea of the passage? A. Chicken and its feathers. B. How to deal with feathers. C. Feathers made into flowerpot. D. New flowerpots. C You Are What You Eat Genetic engineering is the scientific change of the genetic material in a living organism. It allows scientists to identify specific genes, to remove them from an organism's chromosomes (染色体), improve them, analyze them, and possibly clone them, and to then reinsert the changed gene into the original organism, or a completely different organism．Unlike traditional breeding, where a desired quality would be bred within the same species, genetic engineering can insert desired ones into organisms of different species. Wow…Did you catch that? Genetic engineering creates many positive contributions to agriculture. For example, by genetically engineered（GE）foods, anti-cancer agents, minerals and vitamins can be increased. Improved taste, shelf life, and better transport are all possible. Also, GE plants can increase pest and bacterial resistance, therefore, making the food safe for consumers. But some argue that the possible negative effects outweigh the positives, and critics are starting to voice their concerns. Unlike Europe, in the United States labeling is not required on genetically engineered foods or on foods that contain genetically engineered products. Most Americans do not realize that they are, in fact, eating GE foods.
- 10 -
The public is also concerned about the unknown health risks. With limited understanding of genes, scientists cannot predict possible effects. Because most genes introduced into GE plants come from sources not introduced into the human body, it is impossible to know if they will cause reactions. Moreover, due to the lack of labeling if allergies develop, it will be extremely difficult to find the origin of them. There is also a major moral question in many minds. For many, the conflict is not if it is safe or not, but it disturbs them because it is unnatural and unnecessary. We are currently producing one and a half times the amount of food needed to feed the world, yet one in seven people are starving. GE food is unnecessary, and fails to address the root of hunger. Many believe that the only people who will benefit are the corporations that produce it. Scientists cannot foresee the possible effects of GE foods, but we eat them every day without even knowing it. We already have enough food, so why create more that could be potentially harmful to us, to the Earth and to all wildlife?

Optimistic D For centuries, in the countries of South and Southeast Asia, the elephant has been an important part of the culture, economy and religion. And nowhere more so than in Thailand. Unlike its African cousin, the Asian elephant is easily domesticated. The rare so-called white elephants have actually lent the power of royalty to its rulers, and until the 1920s the national flag was a white elephant on a red background. To the early Western visitors, the country?s romantic name was “Land of the White Elephant”. Today, however, the story is very different. Out of work and out of land, the Thai elephant struggles for survival in a nation that no longer needs it. The elephant has found itself more or less deserted by previous owners who have moved on to a different economic world and a society in the western part. And while the elephant?s problems began many years ago, now it has a very low national advantage. How does the national symbol turn into ignored animals? It is a story of worse environment and the changing lives of the Thais themselves. According to Richard Lair, Thailand?s expert on the Asian elephant and author of the report Gone Astray, at the turn of the last century, there may well have been as many as 100,000

national elephants in the country. In the north of Thailand alone, it was estimated that more than 20,000 elephants were employed in transport, 1,000 of them alone on the road between the cities of Chiang Mai and Chiang Saen. This was at a time when 90 percent of Thailand was still forest—a habitat that not only supported the animals but also made them necessary to carry goods and people. Nothing ploughs through thick forest better than lots of sure-footed elephants. By 1950 the elephant population had dropped, but still to the number of 13,397. However, today there are probably no more than 3,800, with another 1,350 wandering free in the national parks. But now, Thailand?s forest covers only 20 percent of the land. This deforestation (采伐森林) is the central point of the elephant?s difficult situation, for it has effectively put the animals out of work. This century, as the road network grew, the elephant?s role as a beast of burden decreased. 67. Thailand was once called “Land of the White Elephant” because________.
