第一节，阅读理解（共 15 小题，每题 2 分，满分 30 分） A Cheating can happen in a lot of different ways. When people cheat, it’s not fair to other people, like the kids who studied for the test or who were the true winners of a game. Many people like the action of cheating. It makes difficult things seem easy, like getting all the right answers on the test. But it doesn’t solve the problem of not knowing the material and it won’t help on the next test --- unless the person cheats again. Some people lose respect for cheaters and think less of them. The cheaters themselves may feel bad because they know they are not really earning that good grade. And, if they get caught cheating, they will be in trouble at school, and maybe at home, too. Some kids cheat because they’re busy or lazy and they want to get good grades without spending the time studying. Other kids might feel like they can’t pass the test without cheating. Even when there seems to be a “good reason” for cheating, cheating isn’t a good idea. If you were sick or upset about something the night before and couldn’t study, it would be better to talk with the teacher about this. And if you don’t have enough time to study for a test because of swim practice, you need to talk with your parents about how to balance swimming and school. A kid who thinks cheating is the only way to pass a test needs to talk with the teacher and his or her parents so they can find some solutions together. Talking about these problems and working them out will feel better than cheating. 56．The author thinks that when kids cheat in class, _______. A．it does harm to their heath B．it is unfair to other people C．teachers should punish them D．teachers shouldn’t stop them at once 57．Some students like cheating mainly because_________. A．the material in the test is very difficult B．they want to do better than the others C．they have little time to study their lessons D．cheating can make hard things seem very easy 58．The fourth paragraph mainly tells us______. A．why kids cheat in the test B．cheating isn’t a good idea C．some kids can’t pass the test without cheating D ． some kids don’t spend the time studying 59．We can learn from the passage______. A．cheaters are often thought highly of B． parents whose kids cheat are often in trouble C．people show no respect for those who cheat D．kids cheat in the test because of swim
practice B In the summer of 1978 an English farmer was driving his tractor through a field of wheat when he discovered that some of his wheat was lying flat on the ground. The flattened wheat formed a circle about six meters across. Around this circle were four smaller circles of flattened wheat. The five circles were in a formation like five dots. During the following years, farmers in England found the strange circles in their fields more and more often. The circles are called “crop circles” because they appear in the fields of grain ― usually wheat or corn. The grain in the circles lies flat on the ground but is never broken; it continues to grow, and farmers can later harvest it. Farmers always discover the crop circles in the morning, so the circles probably form at night. They appear only in the months from May to September. At first, people thought that the circles were a hoax. Probably young people were making them as a joke, or farmers were making them to attract tourists. To prove that the circles were a hoax, people tried to make circles exactly like the ones that farmers had found. They couldn’t do it. They couldn’t enter a field of grain without leaving tracks, and they couldn’t flatten the grain without breaking it. Many people believe that beings from outer space are making the circles to communicate with us from far away and that the crop circles are messages from them. Scientists who have studied the crop circles suggested several possibilities. Some scientists say that a downward rush of wind leads to the formation of the circles — the same downward lash of air that sometimes causes an airplane to crash. Other scientists say that forces within the earth cause the circles to appear. There is one problem with all these scientific explanations: crop circles often appear in formations, like the five-dot formation. It is hard to believe that any natural force could form those. 60. In the summer of 1978, an English farmer discovered in his field that ______. A some of his wheat had fallen onto the ground B. his grain was growing up in circles C. his grain was moved into several circles D. some of his wheat had been damaged 61. The underlined word "hoax" in Paragraph 3 is probably ______. A. a special way to plant crops B. an experiment for the protection of crops C. a research on the force of winds D. an attempt made to fool people 62. One explanation given by scientists for the crop circles is that they are made by _____. A. airplane crashes B. unknown flying objects C. new farming techniques D. air movement C New York — Wednesday, October fifteenth, is the first Global Hand Washing Day. Activities are planned in more than twenty countries to get millions of people in the developing world to wash their hands with soap. Experts say people around the world wash their hands but very few use soap at so-called critical moments. These include after using the toilet, after cleaning a baby and before touching food. Global Hand Washing Day is the idea of the Public-Private Partnership for Hand Washing with Soap. The goal, they say, is to create a culture of hand washing with soap. The organizers say all soaps are equally effective at removing disease-causing germs (病菌). They say the correct way to wash hands is to wet your hands with a small amount of water and cover them with soap. Rub it into all areas, including under the fingernails. Then, rinse well under running water. Finally, dry your hands with a clean cloth.
The Partnership says soap is important because it increases the time that people spend washing. Soap also helps to break up the dirt that holds most of the germs. And it usually leaves a pleasant smell, which increases the likelihood that people will wash again. It also says washing with soap before eating and after using the toilet could save more lives than any medicine. It could help reduce cases of diarrhea (痢疾), which is the second leading cause of child deaths, killing more than one and a half million children a year, by almost half. 63. The most suitable title for the text would be _____. A. Hand Washing Gets a Day of Its Own B. It Is Soap That Matters C. Partnership for Hand Washing Takes Action D. Hand Washing Brings Good Health 64. The Partnership creates Global Hand Washing Day to _____. A. help the developing countries B. promote the importance of soap in hand washing C. make a culture of hand washing in the third world D call on people to wash hands 65. The following facts can explain why soap is important EXCEPT that _____. A. soap helps to get rid of more germs off hands B. soap attracts people to do more hand washing C. soap gets people into the habit of washing hands D. soap gives people a longer hand washing time 66. According to the last paragraph, diarrhea is a disease that _____. A. causes the greatest number of child deaths B can be prevented by washing hands with soap C. makes soap stand out in hand washing D. kills half of the kids in developing countries D Once upon a time a man became a great archer(射手)．He asked the king to declare him as the greatest archer of the country．The king was about to do so when an old servant of the king said， “Wait，sir．I know an old man who lives in the forest．He is a much greater archer．Let this young man go to him and learn from him for at least three years．” The man could not believe that there could be a greater archer than him，but he went and found the old man and he was! For three years he learned from him．Then one day，when he thought he had learned everything，the thought arose in him：“If I kill this old man，then I will be the greatest archer．” The old man had gone to cut wood and he was coming back carrying wood on his shoulder．The young man hid behind a tree， waiting to kill him． He shot an arrow． The old man took a small piece of wood and threw it．It struck the arrow and the arrow turned back and wounded the young man very deeply．The old man came，took Out the arrow and said。“I knew that some day or other you were going to do this． That’s why I have not taught you this secret． There is no need to kill me． My Master is still alive， and I’m nothing before him． You must be with him for at least thirty years． And he is very old，so go fast! Find the old man!” 67．The underlined word in the 1st paragraph is closest in meaning to “ ”. A．announce B．advise C．admire D．admit 68．The young archer wanted to kill the old man in the _______. A．he had nothing more to learn from him
B．the old man refused to teach him everything C．he could then become the greatest archer D．the king’s old servant ordered him to do so 69．What do you think would most probably happen next? A．The young archer set off to look for the old man’s master． B．The king declared the young man the greatest archer． C．The young archer found the old man’s master and killed him． D．The young archer died from the wound soon after． 70．What lesson can you learn from the story? A．You must never try to become better than your teacher． B．There’s always someone better than you in this world C．The older a man is，the better archer he usually becomes． D．Always use a piece of wood to protect yourself from an arrow．

书面表达 One possible version: Dear principle, I’m writing to tell you about the discussion we’ve had about whether a mobile phone should be brought to school. To tell you the truth, the students in our class have different opinions.About 70% of the students think that we shouldn’t bring mobile phones to school. Because with them we may not fix our attention to the lessons. If the phone is not turned off by chance and the ringing will destroy the class. Furthermore, using mobile phones will add to our parents’ economic burdens. However,about 30% of the students think we can bring phones to school on condition that we turned off them in class. With a mobile phone it is convenient for us to keep in touch with our parents and friends.Besides,the mobile phone is a tool of information times. It may not be right to ban students from carrying mobile phones. Yours sincerely, Li Hua
