May the first is an important date in the college admission process in the United States. This is the last day for high school seniors to accept or reject offers of admission in the fall. But according to a recent report, there is a great change. Acceptance rates at the top colleges this year were lower than ever. 71
These days, college applicants are applying to more colleges because online and common applications make the process easier. 72 On the other hand, deciding
students for top colleges to accept can be difficult because it takes much time. Students may not like being put on waiting lists. Also, common colleges work more to get the students they accept to accept them. Some colleges hold visiting days that offer a chance to attend classes and stay overnight. Some universities send gifts. 73 For many families, the most important thing colleges can do is to show them the money, and especially this year; the weak economy makes parents nervous. 74 The
recent problems that spread from the housing market to credit markets have even
affected student‘s loans. So lately, top schools have to spare lots of money to increase their financial aid for students. 75 The Education Department expects the number of high school
graduates to start to go down. This will happen as the last of the children of the baby boom generation finish high schools. The number is not expected to start rising again until 2015. A. Besides, top colleges are facing changes in the population. B. What contributes to it? C. But a mistake can be costly if it happens. D. But top colleges ignore them. E. They have international students who know English. F. It can mean several acceptances to choose from. G. They cannot afford college as planned. 1. 浙江省杭州市 2013 第二次高考科目教学质量检测 第一节：短文改错（满分 10 分） 下面文中共有 10 处语言错误，要求你在错误的地方增加、删除或修改某个单词。 增加：在缺词处加一个漏字符号（^） ，并在该句下面写出该加的词。 删除：把多余的词用斜线（\）划掉。 修改：在错的词下划一横线，并在该词下面写出修改后的词。 注意： 1．每处错误及其修改均仅限一词。 2．只允许修改 10 处，多者（从第 11 处起）不计分。 例如：

Recently some American scientists have given a useful piece of advice to people in industrialized nations. They say people should eat more of the same kind of food eaten by humans living more than 10,000 years ago. 71
The scientists say that the human life has changed greatly. Our bodies have not been able to deal with these changes in lifestyle and this had led to new kinds of sicknesses. 72 So they are called ―diseases of civilization‖. Many cancers and
diseases of the blood system are examples of such diseases. Scientists noted that people in both the Old Stone Age and the New Stone Age enjoyed very little alcohol or tobacco, probably none. 73 However, a change in
food is one of the main differences between life in ancient times and that of today. Stone Age people hunted wild animals for their meat, which had much less fat than domestic ones. They ate a lot of fresh wild vegetables and fruits. They did not have milk or any other dairy products, and they made very little use of grains. 74
We eat six times more salt than our ancestors. We eat more sugar. We eat twice as much fat but only one third as much protein and much less vitamin C． 75 But scientists say that we would be much healthier if we eat much the
same way as our ancestors did, cutting the amount of fatty ,salty and sweet food. A．These new sicknesses were not known in ancient times. B．People today probably do not want to live the way people thousands of years ago did. C．Ancient people also lived in large groups. D．But today, we eat a lot of these. E．Ancient people also got a great deal of physical exercise. F．In that case, they would live much healthier. G．People today probably live the same life as people thousands of years ago.

. However, the real movie capital is Mumbai, in India. Mumbai used to be
known as Bombay, and so the film industry there is called ―Bollywood‖. Bollywood makes twice as many movies each year as Hollywood – more than 800 films a year. 72 .For one thing. Bollywood movies are much longer than most Hollywood
movies. Most Bollywood movies are more than three hours long, and contain singing, dancing, action, adventure, mystery, and romance. Because Bollywood films contain so many different features, this style of film is sometimes called a ―masala‖ film. （―Masala‖ is an Indian word for a mixture of spices.） 73 . It takes much longer to make a movie in Hollywood than in Bollywood. In
fact, filming may begin on a Bollywood movie before the script（剧本）is even finished. The director and writers can make up the story while the film is being made. 74 .
Bollywood actors are very popular and some are in such high demand that they may work on several movies at the same time. 75 . Since most Bollywood movies follow the same kind of story, shooting scenes for several films at the same time is not a big problem for actors or directors. This also helps keep the cost of Bollywood movies lower than the cost of Hollywood movies. The average Bollywood film, with a budget（预算）of only two million U. S. dollars, seems very cheap compared to the average budget of sixty million U.S. dollars for a Hollywood film – thirty times as much!
A．Another big difference between Bollywood and Hollywood movies is the way the movies are made. B．Bollywood produces more movies than Hollywood. C．Most people think that the capital of the movie world is Hollywood, in the United States. D．They may even shoot secens for several films on the same day using the same, clothes and scenery. E．Only Indian people can understand Bollywood movies. F．Sometimes they will even write the script by hand instead of taking time to type it. GThe movies from Bollywood are very different from Hollywood movies. 成都市 2013 届高中毕业班第三次诊断性检测 第二节短文改错(共 10 小题;每小题 1. 5 分，满分 15 分，将答案写到答题卡相应的位置上） 下文中共有 10 处语言错误，每行中最多有两处。每处错误仅涉及一个单词的增加、删 除 或修改。 增加:在缺词处加一个漏字符号( )，并在其下面写出该加的词。 删除:把多余的词用斜线(\)划掉。 修改:在错的词下划一横线，并在该词下面写出修改后的词。 注意:1.每处错误及其修改均仅限一词; 2.只允许修改 10 处，多者(从第 11 处起)不计分。

Before going outside in the morning, many of us check a window thermometer(温 度计)for the temperature. This helps us decide what to wear. __71__. We want our food to be a certain coldness in the refrigerator. We want it a certain hotness in the oven. If we don‘t feel well, we use a thermometer to see if we have a fever. We keep our rooms a certain warmth in the winter and a certain coolness in the summer. Not all the thermometers use the same system to measure temperature. We use a system called the Fahrenheit scale. But most other countries use the Centigrade scale. Both systems use the freezing and boiling points of water as their guide.__72___. The most common kind of thermometer is made with mercury(水银)inside a clear glass tube. As mercury ( or any other liquid ) becomes hot, it expands. As it gets colder, it contracts(收缩). That is why on hot days the mercury line is high in the glass tube.___73___. First. Take a clear glass juice bottle that has a cap; fill the bottle with coloured water. Tap a hole in the center of the cap using a hammer and thick nail. Put the cap
on the jar. Then stick a plastic straw(吸管) through the nail hole. __74__. Finally . Place a white card on the outside of the bottle and behind the straw. Now you can see the water lever easily. __75__. As the temperature goes down, the water will contract, and the lever in the straw will come down. Perhaps you will want to keep a record of the water lever in the straw each morning for a week. A．We use and depend on thermometers to measure the temperature of many other things in our daily lives. B．Thermometers measure temperature, by using materials that change in the same way when they are heated or cooled. C．Now that you know this rule you can make a thermometer of your own that will work. D．The water will rise in the straw. As the temperature of the air goes up, the water will expand and rise even higher. E．They label these in different ways. On the Fahrenheit scale water freezes at 32 degrees and boils at 212 degrees. On the Celsius scale water freezes at 0 degrees and boils at 100degrees. F．Take wax (you may use an old candle if you have one) and melt some of it right where the straw is struck into the cap to seal 把..粘住) them together. G ． People use thermometers which are made by themselves when travelling around the world.

Premier Wen Jiabao acted exactly that way when he kept his cool during
the shoe-throwing incident at Cambridge University. It happened on the last day of his week-long official trip to Europe in early February，when Wen was delivering a speech at the university. A German student, Martin Jahnke, interrupted Wen Jiabao‘s speech. _72 .
Pausing for a few seconds, Wen Jiabao calmly told the audience that the incident would do nothing to hold back the friendship of the Chinese and British people. Wen later posted a notice on the government website asking British officials to pardon Jahnke. 73 . He believes education is the best path to a young man.

He threw a shoe but missed the Chinese Premier. F. Instead, we should just keep focusing on our development. G.

A few weeks ago, we talked about the Test of English as a Foreign Language, or TOEFL. A listener in Cambodia named Thida asks if American colleges and universities also accept the IELTS exam. IELTS is the International English Language Testing System. It was developed by University of Cambridge ESOL Examinations. Cambridge University Cambridge ESOL says the test measures true-to-life ability to communicate in English for education, immigration or employment. The IELTS tests listening, reading, writing and speaking skills. It uses a mixture of accents and spellings, including British English and American English.

You may think that the way you show these emotions is unique. Well, think again. Even the expression of the most personal feelings can be classified, according to Mind Reading, a DVD exhibiting every possible human emotion. 71 In the mid1800s, Darwin divided the emotions into six types—anger, fear, sadness, disgust, surprise and enjoyment. More complex expressions of emotion were
probably learned and therefore more specific to each culture. But now it is believed that many more facial expressions are shared worldwide. 72 The Mind Reading DVD is a systematic visual record of these expressions. The project was designed by a Cambridge professor. His research team first had to define an ―emotion‖. 73 Using this definition, 412 emotion terms were identified and discussed, from ―afraid‖ to ―wanting‖. Then each expression is acted out by six different actors. ―It was really clear when the actors had got it right,‖ says Cathy Collis, who directed the DVD. ―Although they were given some direction, the actors were not told which facial muscles they should move. 74 ‖ Someone who has tried to set such rules is the American, Professor Paul Ekman, who built database of how the face moves for every emotion. The face can make 43 distinct muscle movements. Ekman has also found that it may not be possible for people to reproduce them artificially. The most difficult expression to reproduce is the smile. It isn‘t only about stretching the lips, but tightening the tiny muscles around the eye. 75 If we learnt to recognize whether someone was using their eye muscle when they smiled, we would be able to distinguish true enjoyment from false. A. It shows 412 distinct ways we feel. B. These can be combined into more than 10,000 facial shapes. C. These particular muscles are difficult to control, and few people can do it. D. They decided that it was a mental state that could be introduced by ―I feel‖ or ―he looks ‖ or ―she sounds‖. E. He said the expression of these feelings was universal and recognizable by anyone, from any culture. F. It is as if they are programmed into the brains of ―normal humans‖ wherever they are and whatever their races. G. We thought of trying to describe each emotion, but it would have been almost impossible to make clear rules for this. 本文为实用性文体， 大意是写信向对方汇报自己的大学生活和学习事宜。 以书信体格 式，所列错误都是学生在写作中的常犯错误。 本题考查学生基本词汇语法的用法。突破点：注重语义和语境，照顾固定用法和时态。 Dear Mrs Winthorp, So my first week at college is over!

As parents tend to pass on genes that determine looks, this could result in handsome men becoming rather thin on the ground. 52 For example, Yasmin Le Bon is signed to the same modelling agency as daughter Amber, and Jerry Hall‘s daughters Elizabeth and Georgia Jagger have both taken to the catwalk. Dr Satoshi Kanazawa, of the London School of Economics, analysed data from a survey of 17,000 babies born in Britain in March 1958 and tracked them throughout their lives. 53 When they reached 45, they were asked about the gender of any children they had. Those rated as attractive were equally likely to have a son or daughter as their
first child – but the unattractive sorts were more likely to have a son. 54 Dr Kanazawa believes that parents tend to produce children who benefit from their own features. 55 So it pays for attractive women to have daughters. But couples blessed with strength and aggression rather than looks are better off having boys, as these characteristics are of more use to males. A. Women are becoming more beautiful over the generations because attractive women have more children than plain ones. B. Single girls have always complained that good-looking men are difficult to find. C. Beauty is of more benefit to a woman than a man. D. At the age of seven, their attractiveness was rated by their teachers. E. Put another way, the beautiful women were more likely to have daughters. F. And it may also explain why many models have daughters who follow in their fascinating footsteps. G. Famously good-looking parents like Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are more likely to have girls than uglier couples. 2006 年普通高等学校招生全国统一考试（湖北卷） Growing Up is not easy.
