There was a four percent growth in the number of visitors to theme park in 2014 compared with 2013. There were a totai of 223,450,000 visits to the top 25 theme parks in 2014. But even extreme enthusiasts(狂热者) may not be able to get to every park on the top-25 list. Here are six theme parks that are less known to Americans. But they’re truly worth a visit. Hong Kong’ Ocean Park is a marine(海洋的) mammal(哺乳动物) park, animal theme park and amusement park. It came in at No. 13 on the top-25 list. Lotte World Located in Seoul, South Korea, Lotte World is famous for having the world’s largest indoor theme park together with an outdoor theme park. It’s also home to South Korea’s largest ice skating rink（溜冰场）. It was ranked No. 14 on the top-25 list. Also in South Korea, Everland is located in Gyeonggi-Do. It includes a zoo and a water park and was ranked No. 16. Europa Park Europa Park, located in Rust, is the largest theme park in Germany and one of four in Europe to make the top-25 list. It got No. 21. Tivoli Gardens When you take into consideration the Tivoli Garden is closed a few months each year, its spot at No.23 is impressive. Located in Copenhagen, it’s famous for its fairy-tale atmosphere and antique roller coaster. De Efteling De Efteling is a fantasy-themed amusement park in Kaatsheuvel, the Netherlands. The attractions are based on elements from ancient myths and legends, fairy tales, fables and folklore. It ranked No. 24. 21. Compared with the year 2013, in 2014_____________. A. more theme parks became available B. more people went to visit theme parks C. admission fees to theme parks became higher
D. there were more extreme theme park enthusiast 22. How many European theme parks are on top-25 list? A. 2 B. 3 C. 4 D. 5
23. What do we learn about Tivoli Gardens? A. It’s the best theme park in Europe B. It cannot be visited all year round C. It doesn’t have many exciting activities D. It has nothing in common with De Efteling B I grew up in an area where the natural disaster I was really concerned about was earthquakes. Besides the fire drills(演习) we had each year at school, we also had earthquakes drills. Luckily, there are a few things we can do to prepare for an earthquake. At home, I think we can fasten heavy objects to our walls. We can buy hooks at our local hardware store. When we fasten them to the walks, we should make sure we follow the instructions. When we put objects on shelves, we should make sure they are not heavy or that they cannot hurt somebody when they fall off. This is especially important in bedrooms, as when we are awakened due to an earthquake, our reaction time may be slow. We will want to make sure that we don’t have objects that will fall directly on to the bed. For homes with children, I think parents should teach them what to do during an earthquake. Parents should show them how to get under a table during a quake. Another safe place is an inside doorframe. Parents should teach their children not to go near glass or other unsafe area during the quake. I think they should also teach children what to do if they are ever trapped after an earthquake. If we are in a structure, which has suffered considerable damage, I think we should try to move outside after the quake. As we go outside, we should make sure that we are aware of fallen power lines and other dangers. Broken gas mains are another serious danger after a quake. This is an emergency where it is important to have a family’s emergency action plan in place. Most likely a family will not be together during an earthquake. If each one can remember what they are supposed to do in this situation, then they will have an easier time finding and picking up each other. 24. We learn that in the area where the author grew up, __________. A. wild fries break out frequently B. people are not afraid of earthquakes
C. earthquakes are very likely to occur D. many kinds of natural disasters take place 25. Which of the following is NOT mentioned in the text? A. Fastening heavy objects to the walls B. Building strong houses for earthquakes C. Avoiding putting heavy things on shelves D. Getting out of a damaged building quickly 26. What does the author think of staying inside a doorframe during an earthquake? A. It’s challenging C. It’s safe B. It’s deadly D. It’s a bi risky
27. The last paragraph mainly shows the importance of ___________. A. staying together as a family in an earthquake B. having a family’s emergency action plan in place C. finding and picking up each other after an earthquake D. staying calm and knowing what to do in an earthquake C Last spring, I worked in Washington D.C. There I visited Ford’s Theater and looked at Abraham Lincoln’ impressive memorial(纪念碑). But at the National Museum of Health and Medicine, my nose could almost touch pieces of the man himself: a lock of his hair, pieces of his skull(头盖骨) and a handkerchief with his blood on it. As I stood there, I wondered, “Could we clone Abraham Lincoln?” Since Dolly the sheep was cloned in 1996, scientists have cloned mammals from mice to mules, but we have never cloned a human. Maybe it’s a horrible desire, if we ever decided to clone someone, I would vote for Abraham Lincoln. After Abraham Lincoln was shot, his doctors and friends collected bits of his skull and bloody pieces of cloth for autopsy(尸检). Locks of his hair were passed around like holy relics. Long before they knew about DNA, these pieces of Lincoln represented the essence(本质) of the man. While we do have his genes, we probably don’t have the entire DAN sequence needed for cloning. SheryI Facility at UC Davis, said that when cells die over time, the DNA becomes less useful. The DNA in Lincoln’s 145-year-old bloodstains and hair is probably futile for cloning. “The hair itself would not be very hard to get the entire DNA sequence(顺序) from unless you have a complete follicle(毛囊),” Bernauer said. We don’t have any of Lincoln’ follicles, so that’s a no-go.(不宜进行的事)
Still, it’s interesting to think about ho the development of cloning has changed the way we view human remains. Humans have always honored the dead, but now we know that---in DNA at least----party of the dead lives on. 28. At the National Museum of Health and Medicine, the author__________. A. touched pieces of Abraham Lincoln B. looked at Abraham Lincoln’s memorial C. was asked about cloning Abraham Lincoln D. saw something belonging to Abraham Lincoln’s body 29. Why were bits of Abraham Lincoln’s skull and bloody pieces of cloth collected? A. To remember him B. To learn about his death C. To store for cloning in the future D. To he passed around like saintly(神圣的)relics. 30. What does the underlined word “futile” in Paragraph 4 mean? A. Useless B. Interesting C. Exciting D. Necessary
31. It’s implied in Paragraph 4 that a complete follicle___________ A. doesn’t have cells that die over time B. is in Abraham Lincoln’s remains C. doesn’t tell well about someone’s genes D. has one’s entire DNA sequence D Scientists say sea levels are rising and will continue to do so into the future. Coastal communities around the world are already experiencing the influence of rising seas. Many cities and towns are taking steps to deal with this new reality. Photographers have taken pictures to document(记录) those efforts. Their photos are part of an exhibit called "Sink or Swim: Designing for a Sea Change." It can be seen at the Aquarium of the Pacific, in Long Beach, California. Disastrous storms and floods could be a new reality around the world. That is the opinion of oceanographer Jerry Schubel. He is president of the Aquarium of the Pacific. He said, “Global climate change is resulting in rising seas, coastal flooding and increasingly powerful storm surges.” A video produced by the aquarium（水族馆） shows how water levels are rising. It also shows how low-lying places that flood historically are at the highest risk. Dan Cayan studies weather conditions for the Scripps Institution of
Oceanography at the University of California, San Diego. He says sea levels are rising at a higher rate now than a few years ago. Scientists estimate(估计) that, by the end of the century, sea levels around the world could rise by more than a meter and could continue to rise. Mr. Cayan says heat-trapping greenhouse gasses are causing temperatures to rise. According to him, as the climate warms, the potential for releasing stored water on Earth, largely in Greenland, Antarctica, holds a lot of potential sea level rise in the future." Scientists say city planners in coastal communities must continue to come up with new ways to adapt to rising seas. They say this can be done through futuristic buildings, roads and other infrastructure(基础设施). 32. We can learn from Paragraph 1 that now many coastal communities__________. A. don’t know they are already at great risk B. face problems caused by rising sea levels C. have been completely destroyed by floods D. have moved away because of rising sea levels 33. In the opinion of Jerry Schubel, ___________ A. flooding is the most common in coastal communities B. the world is ready for disastrous storms and floods C. not all powerful storms are caused by climate change D. there’ll be more disastrous storms and floods in the future 34. The underlined sentence in Paragraph 3 means such places________. A. don’t experience as many floods as before B. can be very easily affected by sea level change C. experience higher sea levels than all other places D. will experience the most various natural disasters 35. What is the main idea of the passage? A. What can be done to prevent the rising seas? B. What is the present situation of the rising seas? C. How are the rising seas influencing the world? D. What is the cause and influence of the rising seas? 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。选项中有两项为多余选项。
