A Last summer I went through a training program and became a literacy volunteer 扫盲志愿者） （ . The training I received, though excellent, did not tell me how it was to work with a real student, however. When I began to discover what other people’s lives were like because they could not read, I realized the true importance of reading. My first student Marie was a 44-year-old single mother of three. In the first lesson, I found out she walked two miles to the nearest supermarket twice a week because she didn’t know which bus to take. When I told her I would get her a bus schedule, she told me it would not help because she could not read it. She said she also had difficulty once she got to the supermarket because she couldn’t always remember what she needed. Since she did not know words, she could not write out a shopping list. Also, she could only recognize items by sight, so if the product had a different label, she would not recognize it as the product she wanted. As we worked together, learning how to read built Marie’s self-confidence, which encouraged her to continue in her studies. She began to make rapid progress and was even able to take the bus to the supermarket. After this successful trip, she reported how self-confident she felt. At the end of the program, she began helping her youngest son, Tony, a shy first grader, with his reading. She sat with him before he went to sleep and together they would read bedtime stories. When his eyes became wide with excitement as she read, pride was written all over her face, and she began to see how her own hard work in learning to read paid off. As she described this experience, I was proud of myself as well. I found that helping Marie to build her self-confidence
was more rewarding than anything I had ever done before. As a literacy volunteer, I learned a great deal about teaching and helping others. In fact, I may have learned more from the experience than Marie did. 64.What did the author do last summer? A. She worked in the supermarket. B. She helped someone to learn to read. C. She gave single mothers the help they needed. D. She went to a training program to help a literacy volunteer. 65.Why didn’t Marie go to the supermarket by bus at first? A. Because she liked to walk to the supermarket. B. Because she lived far away from the bus stop. C. Because she couldn’t afford the bus ticket. D. Because she couldn’t find the right bus. 66.How did Marie use to find the goods she wanted in the supermarket? A. She knew where the goods were in the supermarket. B. She asked others to take her to the right place. C. She managed to find the goods by their looks. D. She remembered the names of the goods. 67.Which of the following statements is true about Marie? A. Marie could do things she had not been able to do before. B. Marie was able to read stories with the help of her son. C. Marie decided to continue her studies in school. D. Marie paid for her own lessons. B

C Tall thin beauties such as supermodels may be many people’s ideal of the feminine form, but it may be that evolution has other ideas about what women will look like in the future. This is the finding of Stephen Stearns and his team of Yale University researchers, who have been conducting a huge study on 2,238 women in Massachusetts, the US. The scientists predict that if present trends continue women in 400 years time will be 2cm shorter, a kilo heavier and have healthier hearts. According to Stearns, the reason is that shorter, heavier women have more children than thinner, taller ones and their female children and grandchildren inherit the trait. Human beings are still evolving, although now the reason has more to do with women’s fertility than natural selection. But what of men? Speaking to the Yale Daily News, one member of the Yale team, Raju Govindaraju, said that men were not being selected for better health, as women were. He added that the Yale team was hoping for more funding so they could do more research on male evolution. Many people today tend to think that natural selection is dead and buried. They say that medicine and improved living standards have made people healthier, so that questions of “the survival of the fittest” are no longer relevant. Not so, according to Stearns and his team. Their findings are backed up by other scientists, reports Time magazine. John Hawks at the University of Wisconsin and his coworkers believe they have uncovered nearly 2,000 gene variations in modern humans that allow them to drink milk, defend against disease and encourage brain development. The Yale study has reopened the old debate about which is more important in human development, culture or biology. According to some scientists, the new research, although valuable, might mislead people into thinking that culture is not a key factor. Dr. Steve Jones, a geneticist at the University of London told Time magazine that “What makes humans what we are is in our minds, in our society, and not in our evolution.”
71. What is the article mainly about? A. A new finding on female evolution and the relevant debates it has caused. B. The difference between male and female evolution. C. Whether natural selection still has an effect on humans. D. Debate over the effects of culture and biology in human development. 72. The expression “are backed up” in paragraph 6 can be understood as “__________”. A. are opposed B. are ignored C. are approved D. are supported 73. What can we infer from the article? A. Natural selection affects men more than women B. “The survival of the fittest” no longer applies to the human race. C. Improved living standards make humans evolve faster than ever. D. Some gene variations help humans better adapt to the environment 74. With his words in the last paragraph, Dr. Steve Jones intends to __________. A. explain the outcomes and effects of the Yale study B. figure out the most important factor in human evolution C. stress the key role culture plays in human evolution D. show how important genetics is in human evolution D Most people in business have a strong sense that meetings are demanding more and more of their time. Fifty years ago meetings were barely necessary – the boss decided what was going to happen and told employees in a brief office memo. Now everything in business is discussed extensively in large meetings attended by anybody who has the remotest interest in the subject. The gradual erosion of formal systems of authority has increased the appetite for face-to-face meetings. Consultation and discussion have taken the place of direct instruction. The amount of travel to get to these meetings is increasing. More than nine million people passed through Heathrow in 2005 on the way to internal company events. As a consequence, corporate travel is a growing part of UK carbon emissions. It would be easy to say we must reverse the trend towards more meetings to reduce the climate-change impact of modern business. Unfortunately, it is not going to be easy. Some interesting recent research shows that most of the attendees at corporate meetings do complain about the waste of time involved. But when they were questioned in private, the picture changes. Only 15 per cent of people rated their most recent meeting adversely. Though most attendees saw room for improvement, meetings were valuable both in helping build plans for action and in making employees feel part of the organization. But do these meetings have to be face-to-face? British Telecom recently presented some data on the success of its internal voice conferencing. In the most recent year, more than two million telephone conferences took place in the company. BT estimates a saving of over ?200m from the use of this technology and a cut of almost 100,000 tonnes of CO2. Of course BT has a clear interest in telling us that phone meetings are a good substitute for wasteful corporate get-togethers. So far, such conferencing has struggled to take off as people have tended to prefer to travel. It is, after all, rather more difficult to understand the boss’s body language over the phone. Nevertheless, BT’s research on the considerable benefits of conferencing is reasonable.
Rather than try to get rid of apparently unproductive meetings, we need to find ways to make telephone and video conferences ever better substitutes for those traditional meetings. 75. Why are there more and more meetings according to the passage? A. Because the formal systems of authority have been established. B. Because people prefer to solve problems through discussion. C. Because the organizations are getting more and more complex. D. Because modern transportation has been developing rapidly. 76. The word “adversely” in the third paragraph is closest in meaning to ______. A. approvingly B. enthusiastically C. feasibly D. unfavourably 77. British Telecom presented the figures to prove that voice conferencing _______. A. stimulates the development of technology B. plays a vital role in large organizations C. may well replace conventional ones D. brings large profit to the company 78. What can we learn from the passage? A. Traditional face-to-face meetings bring more benefits than harm. B. Corporate travel contributes a lot to environmental problems. C. The idea of telephone conference is well accepted by employees. D. Meetings should be abandoned because they are a waste of time. Section C ( 1 % * 5 = 5% ) Directions: Read the following text and choose the most suitable heading from A-AB for each paragraph. There is one extra heading which you do not need.（根据下列段落,选择恰当标题， 只要将所选的标题对应字母涂在答题卡相应位置） A. Heavens will be next explorable frontier of modern adventures B. Scientists say we will go to the stars soon C. Neil Armstrong took the first steps on the moon D. The desire to vacation in space seems to be within our reach E. It is reasonable to think that you may be able to move to another planet AB. A giant space hotel may be built 79. __________ It seems to be programmed into all of us the desire to be greater, to go further, to break down the boundaries. When we look to the stars, some of us wonder, “How far can we go?” Some scientists say not only will we go far, but we'll go soon. 80. __________ Seem believable? You know, it’s not unreasonable to think that you might spend a couple of weeks vacationing in space or, who knows, maybe move on to another planet. I mean, who thought that Neil Armstrong was gonna walk on the moon, right? When he took those first steps, they seemed like real small steps, and if we start moving into another planets on our solar system, there are gonna be in small steps, too, but then, when we look back at the big picture, it’s gonna seem like a giant leap. 81. __________ In our ever-shrinking world, it seems there are no more hills to climb, no new oceans to
cross. Modern adventures are looking more and more to the heavens as the next explorable frontier (疆界) . 82. __________ That adventure includes some fantastic ideas. Space hotel projects are in development across the country. Space Island Group of California plans to use empty fuel tanks and a space shuttle (区间内往返的车辆) to build a giant space hotel that will orbit the moon. The hotel could house up to 300 space guests, with a view that would be out of this world. 83. __________ The desire to vacation or adventure in space seems to be realistically within our reach. Is the space of our tomorrow filled with private rockets and space hotel?
