Ⅲ 阅读（共两节，满分 40 分） 第一节：阅读理解（共 15 小题；每小题 2 分，满分 30 分） 阅读下列短文，从每题所给的 A、B、 和 D 中， C 选出最佳选项，并在答题卡上将该项涂黑。 A Last year, a report by a committee of education experts said that a lot of American students cannot write well. The report noted the concerns of business leaders and teachers. The experts said that more students should have to pass a writing test before they can finish high school. They pointed out that major college entrance tests are changing now to include a writing part. Educators know that teaching students to write well is not easy. One problem is the amount of time needed to read through large amounts of work. So some companies have developed computer programs.These can grade students writing more quickly than a person can. Writing tests can also cost less to carry out by computer than paper-and-pencil. These computer systems are known as e-readers. They use artificial intelligence to think in a way like teachers. In the State of Indiana, computer grading of a statewide writing test began with a test of the system itself. For two years, both a computer and humans graded the student writing. Officials say there was almost no difference between the computer grades and those given by the human readers. The entrance test commonly used by business schools, the GMAT, already uses e-readers. The GRE and TOEFL tests might start; officials are deciding. The GRE is the Graduate Record Examination.TOEFL is the Test of English as a Foreign Language. Systems are also being used to grade writing in college classes. The computers read a few hundred examples of student writing already graded by humans. Then the systems compare new writing against those already examined. How do teachers feel all about this? Many say machines can never do the job as well as people can. A computer can find spelling and grammar mistakes. But these teachers say it can never really understand what a writer is trying to say. Critics say a program cannot follow a thought or judge humor or understand a beautifully
expressed idea. But inventors of the programs say computer grading guarantees that each piece of writing is graded in the same way. They also say the systems are meant to judge knowledge more than creativity. 41. From the first paragraph we can conclude that________. A. American students' writing ability is being improved B. American students' writing ability is not satisfactory C. business leaders and teachers are not worried about American students' writing D. all college entrance tests will include a writing part 42. What do the teachers think of the computer system? A. They think highly of the computer systems. B. They think that computers cannot grade writing as well as people. C. They believe that computers can understand a writer's idea well. D. They are glad computers will spare their effort to correct student's school work 43. Which of the following is NOT the advantage of e-readers? A. Saving much of teachers' time B. Saving a lot of money. C. Being fair and objective D. Appreciating humor and beauty 44. According to the passage, which of the following tests has been graded by using the computer systems? A. The GMAT. B. The GRE. C. The TOEFL. D. All of the above. 45. The best title of this passage might be_______. A. Computer-graded Writing B. Human-graded Writing C. How to Improve Students' Writing D. Advantages of E-readers. B Gene technology to benefit people Among all the fast growing science and technology, the research of human genes, or biological engineering as people call it, is drawing more and more attention now. Sometimes it is a hot topic discussed by people. The greatest thing that gene technology can do is to cure serious diseases that doctors at present can almost do nothing with, such as cancer and heart disease. Every year, millions of people are murdered by these two killers. And to date, doctors have not found an effective way to cure them. But if the gene technology is applied, not only these two diseases can be cured completely, bringing happiness and more living days to the patients, but also the great amount of money people spend on curing their diseases can be saved, therefore it benefits the economy as well. In addition, human life span (寿命) can be prolonged. Gene technology can help people to give birth to more healthy and clever children. Some families,with the English imperial family being a good example, have hereditary diseases. This means their children will for sure have the family disease, which is a great trouble for these families. In the past,doctors could do nothing about hereditary diseases. But gene technology can solve this problem perfectly. The scientist just need to find the wrong gene and correct it, and a healthy child will
be born. Some people are worrying that the gene research can be used to manufacture human beings in large quantities. In the past few years, scientists have succeeded in cloning a sheep, therefore these people predict that human babies would soon be cloned. But I believe cloned babies will not come out in large quantities, for most couples in the world can have babies in very normal way. Of course, the governments must take care to control gene technology. 46. What does "these two killers" in the second paragraph refer to ? A. Gene technology and another treatment of the two diseases. B. The two murderers who killed the cloned baby C. The two diseases of cancer and heart disease D. Hereditary diseases and cancer 47. What's the main idea of the third paragraph? A. How gene technology can be applied in the field of treating hereditary diseases. B. Gene technology can be used to clone human babies. C. Gene technology can help people to give birth of a baby. D. Gene technology can help the English imperial family out 48. In what way gene technology can help to treat hereditary diseases? A. Using gene technology, people with hereditary diseases can have more living days. B. Using gene technology, scientist finds the wrong gene and corrects it. C. Using gene technology, human babies can be cloned. D. Doctors can cure cancer and heart disease with the help of gene technology. 49. What is the main propose of writing this passage? A. Expressing the writer's idea that gene technology will benefit people B. Telling people the advantages of gene technology C. Telling the readers that gene technology will not benefit people D. Explaining that gene technology will also do harm to the humanity 50. Which of the following worries people by using this technology? A. Scientists have already successfully cloned sheep. B. Most couple will normally give birth to babies. C. A good number of babies will be cloned D. The government will take action to control it. C A peer is a person who is about the same age as you. Peers affect your life, whether you know it or not, just by spending time with you. Peers can have a good effect on one another. Maybe another student in your science class taught you an easy way to remember the planets in solar system. Maybe you got others excited about your new favorite book and now everyone's reading it. However, sometimes peers affect one another in another way. For example, one kid in school might try to get another to cut class with him, your soccer friend might try to persuade you to be mean to another player and never pass him the ball, or a kid in the neighborhood might want you to shoplift with him. Some kids give in to peer pressure because they want to be liked, to fit in,
or because they worry that other kids may make fun of them if they don't go along with the group. Others may go along because they are curious to try something new that others are doing. The idea that" everyone's doing it' may influence some kids to leave their better judgments or their common senses behind. Peer pressure can be extremely strong and hard to get rid of. Experiments have shown how peer pressure can influence someone to change her/his mind from what she/he knows for sure is a correct answer to the incorrect answer----just because everyone else gives the incorrect answer! That holds true for people of any age in peer pressure situations. It can be hard to walk away from peer pressure, but it can be done. Paying attention to your own feelings and beliefs about what is right and wrong can help you know the right thing to do. Inner strength and self-confidence can help you stand firm, walk away and resist doing something when you know better. 51. What is the passage mainly about? A. Peers have a good effect B. Children give in to peer pressure C. Peer pressure is hard to resist D. Peer pressure 52. The underlined word "shoplift" in Paragraph Three probably means "__________". A. do some shopping B. carry goods for shops C. steal in shops D. take the lift upstairs in shops 53. The writer will not agree that_________. A. only children change their correct answers to incorrect ones because of peer pressure. B. peers have an effect on one another C. Peer pressure can be got rid of D. Peers will believe in themselves if there are other peers who agree with them 54. The writer intends to__________by writing the passage. A. tell people to follow other's opinions B. warn people to stay away from their peers. C. tell it is hard to walk away form per pressure. D. persuade people to do the right thing regardless of peer pressure. 55. All of the following questions are answered in the passage except______. A. What does a peer mean ? B. Why do young people have extremely strong peer pressure? C. How do peer pressure influence our judgment? D. How does peers influence each other ? 第二节：信息匹配（共 5 小题；每小题 2 分，满分 10 分） 请阅读下列应用文及相关信息， 并按要求匹配信息。 请在答题卡上将对应题号的相应选项字 母涂黑。 （注意：如果选择答案 E，请涂 A 和 B 两个选项：如果选择答案 F，请涂 C 和 D 两个选项） 首先，请阅读下面六家宾馆的介绍(A、B、C、D、E、F)： A.

The family ate together at the table, but his shaky hands and failing sight made eating difficult. Peas rolled off his spoon onto the floor. When he grasped the glass, milk spilled on the tablecloth. The son and daughter-in-law became angry with the mess. So they set a small table in the corner. There Grandfather ate alone while they enjoyed dinner. Since Grandfather had broken a dish or two, his food was served in a wooden bowl. Still, the only words the couple had for him were sharp when he dropped a fork or spilled food. The grandson watched silently. One evening, the father noticed the son playing with wood scraps and asked the child sweetly,"What are you making?" The boy responded, "Oh, I am making a bowl for you and mum to eat your food in when I grow up." The words so struck the parents that they were speechless. Then tears started to stream down their cheeks. The son then gently led Grandfather back to their table. From then on, he ate every meal with them.

In my opinion, we should treat the old people just like what we want to be treated when we are-old. Honor and respect should be given to them by their relatives and the whole society, because they are in poor health, bad mental conditions, and can't
achieve everything by themselves. Besides, they've already contributed a lot to their family and society and they deserve the love from us all. (122 words)
