When we walk through the city, we all experience a kind of information overl
oad but we pay attention only to those that are important to us. We don’t stop, we keep our faces expressionless and eyes straight ahead, and in doing so, we are not just protecting ourselves but are avoiding overloading other people as well. We make use of stereotypes (刻板的模式) as convenient ways to make quick judgements about situations and people around us. They may not always be accurate, and they can often be dangerously wrong, but they are used regularly. The problem with the stereotypes is that they restrict experience. By using limited clues to provide us with a rapid opinion of other people or places we may choose to limit our communication. We may decide not to go to certain places because we believe they will not offer something we enjoy. In the city, styles of dress are particularly important with regard to selfpresentation. Different groups often use clearly identifiable styles of clothes so that they can be easily recognized. It is becoming increasingly common for brand names to be placed on the outside of clothes, and this labeling makes it easy to send out information about fashion and price instantly, and lets others tell at a distance whether an individual has similar tastes and is a suitable person to associate with. In England, where social grouping or class continues to make social distinctions （区分）, clothes, hairstyles, people’s pronunciation and the manner of speaking are all clues to our social group. Class distinctions tend to be relatively fixed, although in the city where greater variety is permitted, they are more likely to be secondary determining factors of friendship and association. 1. People walking in cities ignore the surroundings because __________. A. they do not wish to talk to other people B. everyone else is expressionless C. the environment is already familiar to them
D. there is too much information to take in 2.According to the passage, the main disadvantage of using stereotypes is that they __________. A. are likely to lead us into dangerous situations B. may make us miss some pleasant experience C. can rarely be relied on D. make us mentally lazy
3. From the passage we may conclude that _________. A. stereotypes can help to understand people fully B. people are becoming more interested in fashion C. dressing can send messages about individuals D. stereotypes can do more harm than good to people 4. It would appear that in England, a person’s class __________. A. might be less important in making friends in a city B. is mainly determined by his pronunciation C. plays less of a role than it did in the past D. is something that can be changed easily B Lying in the sun on a rock, the cougar(美洲豹)saw Jeb and his son, Tom before they saw it. Jeb put his bag down quickly and pulled his jacket open with both hands, making himself look big to the cougar, It worked. The cougar hesitated, ready to attack Jeb, but ready to forget the whole thing, too. Jeb let go of his jacket, grasped Tom and held him across his body, making a cross. Now the cougar’s enemy looked even bigger, and it rose up, ready to move away, but unfortunately Tom got scared and struggled free of Jeb. “Tom, no” shouted his father. But Tom broke and ran and that’s the last thing you do with a cougar. The second Tom broke free, Jeb threw himself on the cougar, just as it jumped from the rock. They hit each other in mid-air and both fell. The cougar was on Jeb in a flash, forgetting about Tom, which was what Jeb wanted. Cougars are not as big as most people think and a determined man stands a chance, even with just his fists. As the cougar’s claws(爪子)got into his left shoulder, Jeb swung his fist at its eyes and hit hard. The animal howled（吼 叫）and put its head back. Jeb followed up with his other fist. Then out of the
corner of his eye, Jeb saw Tom. The boy was running back to help his father. “Knife, Tom, ” shouted Jeb. The boy ran to his father’s bag, while Jeb started shouting as well as hitting, to keep the cougar’s attention away from Tom. Tom got the knife and ran over to Jeb. The cougar was moving its head in and out, trying to find a way through the wall Jeb was making out of his arms. Tom swung with the knife, into the cougar’s back. It howled horribly and ran off into the mountains. The whole fight had taken about thirty seconds. 5. Why did Jeb pull his jacket open when he saw the cougar? A. To get ready to fight C. To protect the boy B. To frighten it away D. To cool down
6. What do we know about cougars? A. They are afraid of noises C. They are bigger than we think B. They hesitate before they hit D. They like to attack running people
7. How did Jeb try to hold the cougar’s attention? A. By keeping shouting and hitting C. By throwing himself on the cougar D. By swinging his fists at the cougar’s eyes 8. Which of the following happened first? A. The cougar jumped from the rock C. Jeb asked Tom to get the knife C Some people will do just about anything to save money. And I am one of them. Take my family’s last vacation. It was my six-year-old son’s winter break form school, and we were heading home from Fort Lauderdale after a weeklong trip. The flight was overbooked, and Delta, the airline, offered us $400 per person in credits to give up our seats and leave the next day. I had meetings in New York，So I had to get back. But that didn't mean my husband and my son couldn't stay. I took my nine-month-old and took off for home. The next day, my husband and son were offered more credits to take an even later flight. Yes, I encouraged—okay, ordered—them to wait it out at the airport, to "earn" more Delta Dollars. Our total take: $1,600. Not bad, huh? B. Tom struggled free of his father D. Jeb held Tom across his body B. By making a wall out of his arms
Now some people may think I'm a bad mother and not such a great wife either. But as a big-time bargain hunter, I know the value of a dollar. And these days, a good deal is something few of us can afford to pass up. I've made living looking for the best deals and exposing （揭露） the worst tricks. I have been the consumer reporter of NBC's Today show for over a decade. I have written a couple of books including one titled Tricks of the Trade: A Consumer Survival Guide. And I really do what I believe in. I tell you this because there is no shame in getting your money’s worth. I’m also tightfisted when it comes to shoes, clothes for my children, and expensive restaurants. But I wouldn't hesitate to spend on a good haircut. It keeps its shape longer, and it's the first thing people notice. And I will also spend on a classic piece of furniture. Quality lasts. 9. Why did Delta give the author's family credits? A.

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。 Every people has its own way of saying things, its own special expressions. Many everyday American expressions are based on colors. 16 They may say they are red-hot about something unfair —
when they are red-hot they are very angry about something. The small hot tasting peppers found in many Mexican foods are called Red Hots for the color and their fiery taste. Fast loud music is popular with many people. They may say the music is red hot, especially the kind called Dixieland Jazz. 17 It probably comes from the fact that many babies are born with a nice pink color which shows that they are in good health. Blue is a cool color. The traditional Blues Music in the United States is the opposite of Red Hot Music. Blues is slow, sad, and sorrowful. 18 In the words of the song, “You ain’t been blue, till you’ve had that Mood Indigo.” Someone who is blue is very sad. The color green is natural for trees and grass. But it is an unnatural color for humans. A person who has a sick feeling stomach may say he / she feels a little green. A passenger on a boat who is feeling very sick from high waves may look very green. 19 Some people are green with envy because a friend has more dollars or greenbacks. Dollars are called greenbacks because that is the color of the backside of the paper money. 20 A black list is illegal now, but at one time some
businesses refused to employ people who are on a black list for belonging to unpopular organizations.
In some cases, colors describe a situation. A Brownout is an expression for a reduction in electric power. Brownouts happen when there is too much demand for electricity. The electric system is unable to offer all the power needed in an area. Blackouts were common during World War II. Officials would order all lights in a city to be turned off to make it difficult for enemy planes to find a target in the dark of night. A. Pink is a lighter kind of red. People sometimes say they are in the pink when they are in good health. The expression was first used in America at the beginning of the 20th century. B. The color black is used often in expressions. People describe a day in which everything goes wrong as a black day. The day of a major tragedy is remembered as a black day. C. Red is a hot color; Americans often use it to express heat. D. Duke Ellington and his orchestra recorded a famous song Mood Indigo about the deep blue color indigo. E. Sometimes a person may be upset because he does not have something as nice as a friend has, like a fast new car, that person may say he is green with envy. F. People like colors. Colors are linked to everyday life. Many American expressions are based on colors. G. Red can take on different colors depending on the surroundings. 第二部分 第一节 语言知识运用（共两节，满分 45 分） 完行填空（共 20 小题，每小题 1.5 分，满分 30 分）
