第二部分、阅读理解（每小题 2 分，共计 30 分） 第一节：阅读下列短文，从每题所给的 A、B、C、D 四个选项中，选出最佳选项。 A An old gentleman who lives a few doors away from me can always be seen with a bag. He goes out by himself and picks up plastic bottles, plastic bags and pieces of paper everywhere. He does it all carefully and never complains. The children in the nearby school are probably responsible for some of that litter （废弃物）. “There will come a time when they know better ,” he said . “ It’s just not yet . So, I’ll do it for them.” Well, this morning I was out walking my neighbor’s dog when I saw another neighbor, a much younger man , out doing the same thing ! He had his two little sons with him and they were having good fun trying to pick up the litter. When I commented（评论） on what a good job he was doing, he said , “ Well , an older fellow in our street does this . And my friend and I thought it wasn’t fair that he had to do it all the time , so now we take turns .” Not only was he taking a turn , not only did he have a friend join in as well , but he was passing on the lesson to the next generation（代） ！ By the time I had returned the dog to my neighbor I looked again and his children’ s friends had joined in ! This man was teaching a whole group of young children to keep their own street sanitary . An older man had set an example for him and now he was passing it on — the next generation is doing what he did and the generation to come after that ! 21. The old gentleman picks up the litter A. to make money. .
B. to keep the environment clean. D. to help the cleaners.
C. to set an example to children.
22. The underlined word “ sanitary ” in the last paragraph can be replaced by “ ”. A. polluted B. crowded C. straight D. clean
23. What can we learn from the text ? A. Two heads are better than one . C. The power of example is endless . B You may know the English letters A, B and C. But do you know there are people called ABC? You may like eating bananas. But did you know there is such a thing as a “banana person”? How strange! Are these people from “another earth”? No. They are just Chinese people like you and me. ABC means American-born Chinese. An ABC is a Chinese, but was born in the United States. Sometimes, people call an ABC a “banana person”. A banana is yellow outside and white inside. So, when a person is a banana, he or she is white inside—thinking like a Westerner and yellow outside—looking like a Chinese. Do you know why? Usually, ABCs know little about China or the Chinese language. Some of them don’t speak Chinese. Also, they are not interested in Chinese politics. But if ABCs cannot speak Chinese, can we still call them Chinese people? Yes, of course. They are Chinese. They are overseas Chinese. These people may be citizens(公 民) of another country like the US, Canada or Singapore. But they have Chinese blood. Their parents, grandparents or even great-grandparents were from China. They all have black eyes and black hair. But they are not Chinese citizens. They are not people of the People’s Republic of China. For example, we all know the famous scientist C. N. Yang (杨振宁). He got the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1957. And he is an American citizen. 24. “ABC” in this text stands for “_______”. A. three English letters C. Americans born in China B. a kind of banana D. Chinese born in America B. Like father , like son . D. No pains , no gains .
25. Chinese in Western countries are called “banana persons” because __________. A. their bodies are white inside but yellow outside B. they think like Westerners but look like Chinese C. they were born in China but go to study in America D. they are Chinese who look like bananas
26. C. N. Yang is mentioned here to show that ________. A. American Chinese are great B. we love American Chinese
C. American Chinese are not Chinese citizens D. Chinese people can win Nobel Prizes 27. This text is mainly about _________. A. overseas Chinese C. the Nobel Prize B. different kinds of bananas D. the life story of C. N. Yang C The Great Fire of London started in the very early hours of 2 September 1666 . In four days it destroyed more than three-quarters of the old city , where most of the houses were wooden and close together .Over one hundred people became homeless , but only a few lost their lives . The fire started on Sunday morning in the house of the King’s baker（面包师） in Pudding Lane. The baker, with his wife and family , was able to get out through a window in the roof . A strong wind blew the fire from the bakery（面包房）into a small hotel next door .Then it spread quickly into Thames Street. That was the beginning. By eight o’ clock three hundred houses were on fire . On Monday nearly a kilometer of the city was burning along the River Thames. Tuesday was the worst day. The fire destroyed many well-known buildings, old St Paul’s and the Guildhall among them. Samuel Pepys, the famous writer, wrote about the fire, “People threw their things into the river. Many poor people stayed in their houses until the last moment ．Birds fell out of the air because of the heat.” The fire stopped only when the King finally ordered people to destroy hundreds of buildings in the path of the fire．With nothing left to burn, the fire became weak and finally died out. After the fire, Christopher Wren, the architect(建筑师), wanted a city with wider streets and fine new houses of stone．In fact, the streets are still narrow, but he did build more than fifty churches, among which were St Paul’s The fire caused great pain and loss, but after it London was a better place: a
city for the future and not just of the past. 28. How was the fire put out according to the text? A. The King and his soldiers came to help. B. All the wooden houses in the city were destroyed. C. Houses standing in the direction of the fire were pulled down D. People managed to get enough water from the river. 29. It seems that the writer of the text was most sorry for the fact that ______. A．some people lost their lives B．the birds in the sky were killed by the fire C．the King’s bakery was burned down D．many famous buildings were destroyed 30. Why did the writer cite(引用)Samuel Pepys? A．Because Pepys was among those putting out the fire. B．Because Pepys also wrote about the fire. C．To show that poor people suffered most. D．To give readers a clearer picture of the fire. 31．Which of the following were reasons for the rapid spread of the big fire? (a) There was a strong wind. (b) The streets were very narrow．
(c) Many houses were made of wood. (d) There was not enough water in the city. (e) People did not discover the fire earlier. A．(a) and (b) C．(a), (b), (c) and (d) B．(a), (b) and (c) D．(a), (b), (c), (d) and (e) D Steve and Yaser first met in their chemistry class at an American university. Yaser was an international student from Jordan. He wanted to learn more about American culture and hoped that he and Steve would become good friends. At first, Steve seemed very friendly. He always greeted Yaser warmly before class. Sometimes he offered to study with Yaser. He even invited Yaser to have lunch with him. But after the term was over, Steve seemed distant. The two former classmates didn’t see each other very often at school. One day Yaser decided to call Steve. Steve didn’t seem very
interested in talking to him. Yaser was hurt by Steve’s change of attitude. “Steve said we were friends,” Yaser complained, “and I thought friends were friends forever.” Yaser was a little confused. As a foreigner, he doesn’t understand the way Americans view friendship. Americans use the word “friend” in a very general way. They may call both casual acquaintances( 相 识 的 人 ； 熟 人 ) and close companions( 伙 伴 ) “friends”. These friendships are based on common interests. When the shared activity ends, the friendship may fade(逐渐消失). Now as Steve and Yaser are no longer classmates, their “friendship” has changed. In some cultures friendship means a strong lifelong bond between two people. In these cultures friendships develop slowly, since they are built to last. American society is one of rapid change. Studies show that one out five American families moves every year. American friendships develop quickly, and they may change just quickly as well. People from the United States may at first seem friendly. Americans often chat easily with strangers. But American friendliness is not always an offer of true friendship. After an experience like Yaser’s , people who’ve been in this country for only a few months may consider Americans to be fickle(易变的). Learning how Americans view friendship can help non-Americans avoid misunderstandings. It can also help them make friends in the American way. 32 According to the passage, ________made Yaser a little confused. A. Steve’s inviting him to dinner C. Steve’s studying with him 33. We can learn from the passage that_____. A. Americans use the word “friend” in a very special way and like to develop a close friendship B. American friendliness is always an offer of true friendship and is of great value C. Americans think the friendship will last for ever, even though the shared activity ends D. Americans always base their friendships with others on common interests 34. In Paragraph 2, the underlined word “they” refers to “_______”. A. American friendships B. American families B. Steve’s cold attitude D. Steve’s misunderstanding him
C. People from the United States 35. This passage mainly tells us_____.
A. that people should not make friends with Americans. B. that everyone needs friends. C. the importance of keeping friendships D. how Americans view friendship 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 . 选项中有两项是多余 的. 36 Most of us have one or a few bad habits that we’d like to get out of.
