第三节 阅读理解 （每小题 2 分，共 50 分） A
One of the BIGGEST problems you may face when trying to meet new friends is the awkward silence. Encountering this situation is so uncomfortable that it can even force you to avoid meeting new people in the first place, but there is a way to get around it. Why You Run Out of Things to Say. After studying this in depth, I found patterns of behavior that can keep you from making great conversation with people. One of these common be haviors is the habit of filtering—holding back from saying something until you’ve ―checked‖ with yourself to make sure that what you’re about to say is cool, impressive, smart, and interesting. What does that do to your conversation ability? It kills it! Another problem is not learning to get in the mood for conversation. If you spent a whole day working or studying analytical or logical subjects, and you don’t know how to switch from that, then it can take a lot of time to warm up and start interacting with people socially. You can overcome this simply by learning a few new skills, such as the ones listed below. No Filtering. This is the reflex that allows you to say whatever goes on in your mind. No filtering, no che cking with yourself ―would I sound cool if I say this?‖. None of that. The best way to practice this is to start doing it with people you kind of know—do you dare to try it? It’s fun to realize that you’re allowed to say whatever is on your mind, and no-one is going to judge you for it. As long as you don’t say anything that could land you in jail, you’re okay! ―Interesting, tell me more!‖ This works 99% of the time. It’s a surefire technique, and it works especially well for beginners. People love to know that you’re interested in what they have to say, so if you show some interest, they’ll hang around and want to talk to you even more. All of the ―oh! that’s interesting…‖, ―Hmm, I’ve never heard of that‖, ―Hmm, cool!‖ expressions are reactionary bits of conversation that prove to the other person that you’re really listening, and that’s very flattering to them. Stories from Everywhere. Everyone knows that stories juice-up conversations, but most people only talk about stories their own lives. You don’t have to draw from your own experience when speaking with someone: __________________________________ , from stories that happened to people you know, to those you came across via the radio, TV, magazines, etc. How can you integrate the stories into your conversation? The key is to first reali ze that you can use them. You’ve already heard them, and the more interesting or weird they are, the harder they are to forget, so you’re all good. Your brain doesn’t lose them. When someone mentions something related to any of them, just tell the story, even if it’s not from your
life. It can be any sil ly story, short or long, interesting, or totally awkward —just use it! People love talking to people who can just share stuff openly like that. These techniques should get you started, but if you want to take it to an advanced level—to the point where you can just have fun when talking to anyone, meet the right people you want in your life, and be able to make friends with them fast—then I recommend that you take a little time to learn more about how conversations work. If you do that, you’ll make conversations far more interesting, with natural ease, avoiding all awkward silences that might prevent you from meeting the right friends that you would love to have around. 61. How many pieces of advice does the author give? A. 2 B. 3 C. 4 D. 5 62. The author wrote this passage mainly in order to ________ .

For several days I saw little of Mr. Rochester. In the morning he seemed much occupied with business, and in the afternoon gentlemen from the neighborhood called and some times stayed to dine with him. When his foot was well enough, he rode out a great deal. During this time, all my knowledge of him was limited to occasional meetings about the house , when he would sometimes pass me coldly, and sometimes bow and smile. His changes of manner did not offend me, because I saw that I had nothing to do with the cause of them. One evening, several days later, I was invited to talk to Mr. Rochester after dinner. He was sitting in his armchair, and looked not quite so severe, and much less gloomy. There was a smile on his lips, and his eyes were bright, probably with wine. As I was looking at him, he suddenly turned, and asked me, "do you think I'm handsome, Miss Eyre?" The answer somehow slipped from my tongue before I realized it: 'No, sir." "ah, you really are unusual! You are a quiet, serious little person, but you can be almost rude." "Sir, I'm sorry. I should have said that beauty doesn't matter, or something like that," "no, you shouldn't! I see, you criticize my appearance, and then you stab(刺) me in the back! You have honesty and feeling. There are not many girls like you. But perhaps I go too fast. Perhaps you have awful faults to counterbalance （抵消）your few good points I thought to myself that he might have too. He seemed to read my mind, and said quickly," yes, you're right. I have plenty of faults. I went the wrong way when I was twenty-one, and have never found the right path again. I might have been very different. I might have been as good as you, and perhaps wiser. I am not a bad man, take my word for it, but I have done wrong. It wasn't my character, but circumstances which were to blame. Why do I tell you all this? Because you're the sort of person people tell their problems and secrets to, because you're sympathetic and give them hope."
It seemed he had quite a lot to talk to me. He didn't seem to like to finish the talk quickly, as was the case for the first time. "Don't be afraid of me, Miss Eyre." He continued. " you don't relax or laugh very much, perhaps because of the effect Lowood school has had on you. But in time you will be more natural with me, and laugh, and speak freely. You're like a bird in a cage. When you get out of the cage, you'll fly very high. Good night." 71. At first Miss Eyre’s impressions of Mr. Rochester were all except __________ . A. busy B. dull C. sociable D. changeable. 72. The underlined sentence in Para 2 means _______. A. What I knew about him was his occasional meetings in the house B. Only by coming to the house now and then could I know about him C. I occasionally met him but my knowledge about him was in the house D. I knew only a little about him by meeting him around the house sometimes 73. From what Mr. Rochester told miss Eyre, we can conclude that he wanted to ______ . A. tell her his life experience B. tell her all his troubles. C. blame her for misunderstanding him D. change his circumstances 74. At the end of the passage, Mr. Rochester sounded ________. A. rude B. cold C. encouraging D. polite 75. According to the passage, which of the following statement is WRONG? A. Miss Eyre was brave, polite and confident B. Miss Eyre didn’t see Mr. Rochester often. C. Miss Eyre was honest, brave and warm-hearted D. Miss Eyre was at Lowood School before she came to Mr. Rochester ’s house.
Hunger would seem to be natural: Depending on how much you eat, you either will or you won’t be hungry afterw ard. However, as it turns out, our relationship to food may not be so simple. In recent years, some research has shown that our appetite and food intake are influenced by many factors besides our biological need for energy, including our eating environment and our perception(感知的) of the food in front of us. Studies have shown, for instance, that eating in front of the TV can increase both hunger and the amount of food consumed. Similarly, people’s food intake appears to be influenced by their surroundings, such as the eating behavior—and body size—of their dining companions. Even simple visual cues, like plate size and lighting, have been shown to affect consumption. A new study, published in the journal PloS’ONE, suggests our short-term memory also may play in a role in appetite. Several hours after a meal, the study found, people’s hunger levels were predicted not by how much they’d eaten, but rather by how much
food they’d seen in front of them—in other words, how much they remembered eating. Here’s how the experiment worked: Researchers in the UK showed 100 adults a bowl containing either a small(10-ounce) or a large (17-ounce) serving of tomato soup, and asked them to eat the whole soup. However, half of the participants ate more or less than their eyes led them to believe, thanks to a hidden tube that secretly refilled or drained the bowl. Immediately after the meal, the participants’ hunger levels depended on the amount of soup they had drunk. Those who had eaten the large serving were more likely to report feeling full—a predictable response to the signals sent out by the stomach following a meal, the researchers say. Two t o three hours later, however, the participants’ feeling of fullness were related only to the perceived amount of soup drunk. Regardless of how much soup they’d actually had, those who believed they consumed 17 ounces reported being less hungry, on average, than those who thought they consumed 10 ounces. ―This research suggests the memory of our previous meal may have a bigger influence on our appetite than the actual size of the meal,‖ say Jeffrey M. Brunstrom, the lead author of the study and a professor of experimental psychology at the University of Bristol.‖ Hunger isn’t controlled only by the physical characteristics of a recent meal. We have confirmed an independent role for memory for that meal,‖ Brunstrom says. ― This shows that relationship between hunger and food intake is more complex than we thought.‖ These findings prove earlier research that suggests our perception of food can sometimes trick our body’s response to the food itself. In a 2011 study, for instance, people who drank the same 380 calories milkshake on two separate occasions produced different levels of hunger-related hormones depending on whether the shake’s label said it contained 620 or 140 calories. Moreover, the participants reported feeling more full when they thought they’d consumed a higher-calories shake. ― We’ve known for many years that our eyes are bigger than our stomach, but it may be more accurate to say that our eyes tell our stomachs a story,‖ says Susan Abers, a clinical psychologist with the Women’s Health Brach of the Cleveland Clinic, in Wooster, Ohio, and the author of Eating Mindfully. 76. what would happen at meal time if you remembered eating a lot in the previous meal? A. You would not feel so hungry. B. You would have a good appetite. C. You wouldn’t feel like eating the same food. D. You would probably be more particular about food. 77. Which of the following is said to be a factor affecting our appetite and food intake? A. When we eat our meals. B. What materials the food contains. C. How we perceive the food we eat. D. How fast we eat our meals.
78. What do we learn from the 2011 study? A. Food labels may mislead consumers in the purchases. B. People tend to take in a lot more calories than necessary. C. Hunger levels depend on one’s consumption of calories. D. Food labels may influence our body’s response to food. 79. What does Brunstrom suggest we do to control our appetite? A. Pick dishes of the right size. B. Trick ourselves into eating less. C. Concentrate on food while eating. D. Choose food with fewer calories. 80. What is the main idea of the passage? A. Eating habits often affect our food digestion. B. Good eating habits will contribute to our health. C. Our food intake is determined by our biological needs. D. Psychological factors influenced our hunger levels.

It is five years since I gradate from Red Star High School. Last Saturday, the class that I was in holding a get-together, which took us a long time prepare. It was indeed not easy to get in the touch with everybody and set a well time for all of us. We all enjoyed this precious day greatly, talked about the time we spent together and the people we were familiar to. It was a pity that some of the classmates were not present though they had gone abroad for further studies, but we called back or sent greeting card from different places.
