He and six other migrant workers from Fujian Province spent 36 hours in Iraq as international hostages(人质). But luckily, they were set free last Tuesday morning, unharmed by the people who had taken them hostages. After hard work by Chinese diplomats(外交官) in the region, the Iraqi kidnappers(绑架者) agreed to hand them over to a local religious group. “The friendly relations between the Chinese and Iraqi people have played a key role in the release（释放） of the hostages,” said Foreign Ministry spokesman Kong Quan. China refused to join the US-led coalition(联军) in the Iraqi war. Since April 4, over 60 hostages from 12 countries, including America, Italy and Japan, have been taken in Iraq. Some have been released, others were killed. The Iraqi resistance groups have started taking foreigners hostages in an attempt to force the US-led troops out of their country. As a result, many foreigners have left, fearing the situation will get worse. Some nations are also considering removing their troops from Iraq. Thailand has ordered its forces not to leave their camp and may bring them home before September as originally planned. New Zealand Prime Minister Helen Clark is considering similar action. But Dan Senor, spokesman for the US-led coalition in Baghdad, said that it would not negotiate(谈 判) with “terrorists(恐怖分子) or kidnappers” to get hostages released. 56. The seven workers from Fujian were set free mainly because _________________. A. they were too poor to pay anything B. kidnappers didn’t know they were Chinese C. China didn’t take sides with the US-led coalition D. kidnappers were friendly to the Chinese 57. Why did the Iraqi resistance groups start to take foreigners hostages? A. To show their anger towards the occupation of foreign troops. B. To tell the world they would fear nothing. C. To make foreign armies leave their country. D. To resist the American troops. 58. The author talks about Dan Senor to show the US ______________. A. wouldn’t give in to Iraqi terrorists or kidnappers B. had enough power to station in Iraq C. wouldn’t give up unless it could get something D. had no plan to bring its troops home 59. The passage mainly tells us _____________________. A. the hostage crisis(危机) in Iraq B. foreigners were not welcome in Iraq C. the Chinese hostages were set free D. keeping away from Iraq is a wise choice B Kuringai Chase National Park Guided Walks and Nature Activities SUNDAY MAY 7 EASY FRIDAY JUNE 6 EASY

Austen's popularity is rooted in her intelligence. But today she would certainly have had a very different life, as would her characters. Here's my own suggestion. . . It is a truth finally and universally acknowledged that a single woman with brains deserves to have equal opportunities to men, however disadvantaged she may feel by sexism（性别歧视）. "My dear husband," said his hopeful wife one day, "have you heard that the local store, standing empty for so long, is taken over by a bright young businesswoman?" Her dull and indifferent (漠不关心的) husband replied that he had not. "But it is, it is," she replied excitedly. Mr Dull-Husband made no reply. "Don't you want to know her plans?" she cried with some impatience. "Well, clearly you think it matters to your silly little head? so I'd better listen. " "Well, my dear, the rumour (传言) is that she has already set up a string of successful businesses in northern England, though how a woman can know anything about that is beyond me. She will move in herself next month. " "What is her name?" "Bingley.” "Is she married or single?" "What a question! And none of your business. But her coming will be good for our five boys. " "How so? How can it possibly affect them? " "My dear love; those lazy boys need something to wake them up. There are sure to be jobs going. " "Is that her point in settling here? Surely as a woman she has simply taken a fancy to the place. " "Nonsense, my love, how little you've noticed the world has changed. She's got a first-rate degree and some sort of business qualification, I'm told. She surely needs one of our boys! Perhaps you might give her a call. " "Me? No. Perhaps you can take an interest. You still have your looks, after all. She may even offer you a job. " "Oh, that's not likely. These new chances belong to the younger generation. But now you mention it, I think I'll go along all the same. " And Mrs. Bennet went along. That was 10 years ago. She is now managing director of a FTSE-listed company. ... It would remain the case, of course, that Mrs. Bennet would be one of very few women on the company board, that her salary would be lower than her male colleagues, her bonus of a more "female" dimension and her lifespan (年限) among the city's business leaders shorter than theirs. Still, she'd no doubt have enjoyed Davos (达沃斯经济论坛)—and might even have hobnobbed (攀谈) with influential
figures. 67. Which of the following is TRUE according to the passage? A. Austen was born 200 years ago. B. Austen’s success lies in her wisdom. C. Austen rewrote Pride and Prejudice. D. Austen’s updated work gains popularity. 68. The underlined part in the passage suggests that Mrs Bennet ________. A. had mixed feelings of admiration and surprise about Bingley B. felt kind of worried and doubtful about Bingley C. was extremely anxious to meet Bingley D. had a great curiosity about Bingley 69. In the eyes of Mrs Bennet, Bingley surely needed one of their boys to ________. A. get married to B. help her move in C. work for her D. take over her store 70. What does the writer intend to tell us? A. Women with brains can also be as successful as men. B. Women have to pay a high price for success. C. A judgment must be made free from prejudice. D. Sex discrimination still exists nowadays. 第四部分：任务型阅读 (共 10 小题，每小题１分，满分 10 分) 请认真阅读下列短文，并根据所读内容在文章后表格中的空格里填入最恰当的单词。 注意：每空限填 1 个单词。 As Chinese President Xi Jinping leaves on Friday on his first overseas tour, which includes stops in Moscow and three African countries, Beijing’s media is very interested in Xi’s famous wife Peng Liyuan, who will be traveling with him.

Dear Editor, I’m writing to tell you there is a heated discussion over whether or not university students should be financially independent.
It is well known that opinions are divided on the question. 70% of the students think that university students don’t have to be financially independent. In their views there are two factors contributing to this attitude as follows: in the first place, trying to make money will affect their studies. Furthermore/In the second place, they think that they can repay their parents in the future by working hard now, so there is no need for students to take part-time jobs to earn money. 30% of the students, however, differ in their opinion on this matter. They hold the idea that university students should be financially independent. From their point of view, on one hand, doing part-time jobs will help one gain working experience and learn more of society. On the other hand, when students find it hard to make money, they won’t waste their money any longer. As far as I am concerned, I partly agree with the opinions above. I think that as grownups, we should not depend on our parents any more. However, if our parents can afford to pay the tuition for us, we should put our studies in the first place. Thank you for reading my letter.
Yours, Li Hua
