A Why is pink or purple a color for girls and blue or brown for boys? The answer depends largely on cultural values as well as personal experiences. To the Egyptians, green was a color that represented the hope and joy of spring, while for Muslims, it means heaven. Red is a symbol of good luck in many cultures. In China, children are given money in a red envelope to bring good fortune in the New Year. For many nations, blue is a symbol of protection and religious beliefs. Greek people often wear a blue necklace hoping to protect themselves against evils (灾祸). People’s choice of colors is also influenced by their bodies’ reactions (反应) toward them. Green is said to be the most restful color. It has the ability to reduce pain and relax people both mentally and physically. People who work in green environment have been found to have fewer stomachaches. Red can cause a person’s blood pressure to rise and increase people’s appetites (食欲). Many decorators will include different shades of red in the restaurant. Similarly, many commercial websites will have a red “Buy Now” button because red is a color that easily catches a person’s eye. Blue is another calming color. Unlike red, blue can cause people to lose appetite. So if you want to eat less, some suggest that eating from blue plates can help. The next time you are deciding on what to wear or what color to decorate your room, think about the color carefully. 61. Muslims regard green as a symbol of heaven mainly because of their . A. cultural values B. commercial purposes C. personal experiences D. physical reactions to the color 62. Why will many commercial websites have a red “Buy Now” button? A. To relax people physically. B. To increase people’s appetites. C. To encourage people to buy the goods. D. To cause a person’s blood pressure to rise. 63. What color might help lose weight according to the text? A. Red. B. Green. C. Blue. D. Purple. 64. Which of the following would be the most proper title for the text? A. Colors and Human Beings B. The Cultural Meaning of Color C. Colors and Personal Experiences D. The Meaning and Function of Color B How to Study Smarter, Not Harder Here are some of our favorite study tips that will help any student study smarter, not harder: Recite As You Study Reciting—saying things out loud should first take place as you read through each paragraph or section. Test yourself. This will help you to understand as well as learn faster because it is more active than reading or listening. It will also help you to notice your mistakes and the topics you have trouble understanding.

Take Fuller Notes Notes should be in your own words, brief and clear. They should be tidy and easy to read. Writing notes will help you better than just underlining as you read, since it forces you to rewrite ideas in your own words. Study the Middle The best time to review is soon after you’ve learned something. You are more likely to remember the material at the beginning and the end of the lesson, so make sure you focus on the middle when you review. Sleep On It Study before going to bed, unless you are very tired. It’s easier to remember material you’ve just learned after sleeping than after an equal period of daytime activity, because your brain continues to think even after you’ve fallen asleep. Combine Memory and Understanding There are two ways to remember: by memorizing and by understanding. Multiplication tables(乘法表), telephone numbers, and math formulas(公式)are better learned by memorizing(记 忆). Ideas are best learned by understanding. The more ways you have to think about an idea, the more meaning it will have; the more meaningful the learning, the better you can remember it. Pay attention to similarities in ideas and concepts, and then try to understand how they fit in with things you already know. Never be satisfied with anything less than a completely clear understanding of what you are reading. If you are not able to follow the thought, go back to the place where you first got confused and try again. 65. You can notice your mistakes by _______. A. saying things out aloud B. taking notes C. studying the middle D. sleeping on it 66. When taking notes, you should _______ to better help you with reading. A. underline important notes B. write notes in your own words C. take down every detail D. write as quickly as possible 67. The writer advises you to _______ as it is easier for you to remember material. A. study after a period of activity B. do some exercise after studying C. study as soon as you get up D. study before going to sleep 68. Which of the following is NOT helpful for your understanding? A. Thinking about an idea in different ways. B. Relating ideas and concepts with what you already know. C. Reading from the beginning to the end without stop. D. Going back to what first made you confused and start again. C Are you having too much salt? You might not think so, but people in China eat on average (平均) about 12 grams of salt each day, that is much higher than the 6 grams suggested by the World Health Organization. You could be eating too much without realizing it, because about 75% of the salt we eat is already in the food we buy, such as bread, sauces, soups and sausages. What problems can eating too much salt cause? To answer that question, first let’s take a look at what salt is. Salt is a chemical compound. It is made of sodium (钠) and chloride (氯化物). Salt is used to

keep and flavor foods. A small amount of salt is important for good health because our bodies need sodium and chloride to work. But past studies have found that people who eat more salt than they need tend to have high blood pressure. Eating too much salt has also been connected with other conditions, such as heart and kidney (肾) problems. If you want to cut down on salt, the good news is, there are plenty of simple things to do. Here are some tips: *Cut back on high salt foods. Most foods contain some salt. But some foods such as cheese, bacon, pickles (泡菜), smoked fish and chips are almost always high in salt because of the way they are made. You can still enjoy them, but try to have these in smaller amounts, or eat them less often. *Choose reduced salt bread and breakfast cereals. Bread and breakfast cereals (谷物) are major source of salt in the diet, not that they’re necessarily high in salt but because we eat a lot of them. For these foods, there can be a really big difference between different types and brands. So next time you’re shopping, take the time to compare the salt levels on a few similar products. And always try to choose the ones lower in salt. *Avoid adding salt to cooking and at table. Instead, you could use herbs and spices (香料) such as garlic (大蒜) and lemon juice to add flavor to meals. 69. Many people in China don’t realize they are eating too much salt because ______. A. salty food tasted better than reduced salt food B. they do not calculate the amount of salt they eat C. about 3/4 of the salt we eat is already in the food we buy D. few people experience problems from eating too much salt 70. For a healthier life, the author ’s suggestion is to ________. A. cut back on food with less salt B. eat less heavily salted food C. eat as much reduced salt bread as is wanted D. stop eating bread and breakfast cereals 71. What is the purpose of the article? A. To warn people of food containing too much salt. B. To inform people of the right amount of salt taken each day. C. To advise people to be careful about the amount of salt they eat. D. To promote (促进) the right way to make reduced salt food.
D When I was in the seventh grade, I was a candy striper (义工) at a local hospital in my town. I volunteered(自愿做) about 30 to 40 hours a week during the summer. Most of the time I spent there was with Mr. Gillespie. He never had any visitors, and nobody seemed to care about his condition. I spent many days there holding his hand and talking to him, helping with anything that needed to be done. He became a close friend of mine, even though he responded with only an occasional squeeze (紧握) of my hand. Mr. Gillespie was in a coma (昏 迷). I left for a week for a vacation with my parents, and when I came back, Mr. Gillespie was

gone. I didn’t have the courage to ask any of the nurses where he was, for fear they might tell me he had died. So with many questions unanswered, I continued to volunteer there through my eighth-grade year. Several years later, when I was a junior in high school, I was at the gas station when I noticed a familiar face. When I realized who it was, my eyes filled with tears. He was alive! I got up the nerve to ask him if he was Mr. Gillespie, and if he had been in a coma about five years ago. With an uncertain look on his face, he replied yes. I explained how I knew him, and that I had spent many hours talking to him in the hospital. His eyes welled up with tears, and he gave me the warmest hug I had ever received. He began to tell me how, as he lay there comatose (昏睡的), he could hear me talking to him and could feel me holding his hand the whole time. He thought it was an angel(天使), who was there with him. Mr. Gillespie firmly believed that it was my voice and touch that had kept him alive. Then he told me about his life. We exchanged a hug, said our good-byes and went our separate ways. Although I haven’t seen him since, he fills my heart with joy every day. I know that I made a difference between his life and his death. As importantly, he has made a great difference in my life. I will never forget him and what he did for me: He made me an angel. 72. When the author volunteered at a local hospital, she . A. mainly helped the nurses with their paper work B. made up her mind to become a nurse herself one day C. spent most of her time taking care of a man in a coma D. became friends with Mr. Gillespie’s visitors 73. The author didn’t ask where Mr. Gillespie had gone because . A. she knew for sure that he had recovered B. she forgot all about him when she returned to the hospital C. she had been concerned that he might stay in coma forever D. she feared that he might have died 74. Judging from the article, which of the following statements is TRUE? A. The author continued her volunteer work in the hospital until seventh-grade. B. The author met Mr. Gillespie at a gas station several years later. C. Mr. Gillespie recognized the author ’s voice the moment he met her. D. No one in the hospital believed that Mr. Gillespie would recover from his coma. 75. Which of the following statements best summarizes the point of the story? A. Those with faith in themselves will succeed. B. If you spread happiness you will be happy yourself. C. Respect people and they will try hard to improve. D. Kindness is loving people more than they deserve. 第二节 信息匹配（共 5 小题，每小题 1 分，共 5 分） A．Act B．Accept Yourself C．Keep a Diary D．Think about the Past E．Focus on (关注，聚焦)Yourself

F．Give Yourself a break How to Find Yourself Do you often feel lost？Do you think you are living somebody else’s life? If yes, discover ways to find yourself by going through the following article. 76__________ If you are thinking, “how to find yourself when you are lost?”, then the first thing to do is to have a rest from everything—work, personal life and all worldly things. Give time to yourself to think why you seem lost. Is it because of overwork? Is it because you are not leading a life that you want to? Or is it because you are not satisfied with the people or things around you? Try to find answers to these questions to determine the cause behind your restlessness. 77 __________ For once, instead of being the way others want you to be, be yourself. Look within and find yourself in you. Think about the things that you would want to do if you didn’t have any family responsibility (责任)or any money problems. Think about the kind of relationship (关系)you would want to be in, the place that you would like to stay in, the kind of lifestyle you would like to lead, if you didn’t have the society or people around you, judging all the time. If you really want to know how to find inner peace, then think, what you would want others to describe you as—an honest person? Or adventurous? Or loving, or realistic? Once you look within, you will know the answer and then try to be exactly that. 78 __________ Thinking deeply about the past, the time or situations when you were the happiest, is another way to find yourself .Think what you were doing or with whom you were, when you were the happiest. This will help you to identify things that you want to do in life that make you happy and also certain people whose company you enjoy. 79 __________ Knowing yourself and determining what you are to do with your life will not come to you in a day or two. Discovering oneself is an ongoing process and it can take months or sometimes even years to truly find yourself. So, it’s important that you keep a written record of all your feelings and thoughts, which you can go through at a later stage. Pour all your emotions and feelings about life in it and who knows may be one day going through it, you will find yourself. 80 __________ Once you have discovered what you want to do with your life, make a move for change and self improvement. Even if it means taking up small things such as dancing or painting, go ahead and do it. If you want a career change, plan and take steps so that it can take place smoothly. If you are stuck in a bad relationship and find yourself unable to mend it, break away. At the beginning, you may find yourself slightly unbalanced, but with time everything will be fine. It is very important for you to truly find yourself, before it is too late. If you do not find yourself now, you will spend your life with somebody you do not even know, i.e. yourself. 第四部分：写作 第一节：单词拼写（共 10 小题；每小题 0.5 分，满分 5 分） 根据下列句子及所给单词的首字母或中文， 在答题卷上按题号写出各单词的完整的正确 形式（每空限填一词） 。 1.
