Ⅲ.阅读理解(共 20 小题；每小题 2 分，满分 40 分) A Enough sleep is important to health. The amount of sleep needed depends on the age of the person and the conditions in which sleep takes place. The young may need more sleep than the old, but usually eight hours are enough for the health of grownups. Some can do with less than this amount, but others may need more. Every person knows his own need. It is then a matter of good judgement to satisfy his need. Sleep should always be enough to make one bring back his strength and get ready for a day's work. Fresh air is necessary to sound sleep. It is not without reason for some people to think that it is practicable to sleep in the open air. When one can keep himself warm, outofdoor sleeping probably gives the body its most complete relaxation(松弛)． Ability(能力) to sleep is largely a habit. The conditions referred to only lead to sleep. Outofdoor exercises, a good habit of regular hours and the avoidance(避免) of late eating and worry, which are largely within the control of any person, are all helpful to sound sleep. A bath at bedtime, neither hot nor cool but of body temperature, may be helpful
to sleep. Sleepproducing drug(药) should never be taken except when suggested by a doctor. 26．How many hours are usually enough for the health of a pupil? A．Less than eight hours.

30．Before going to bed, you'd better not________. A．take a bath B．do any housework C．think a lot D．go out for relaxation B People use their mouths for many things. They eat, talk, shout and sing. They smile and they kiss. In the English language, there are many expressions using the word “mouth”． For example, if you say bad things about a person, the person might protest(抗议)
and say “Do not bad mouth me.” Sometimes, people say something to a friend or family member that they later regret because it hurts that person. Or they tell the person something they were not supposed to tell. The speaker might say: “I really put my foot in my mouth this time.” in the mouth. If this should happen, the speaker might feel down In other words, he might feel sad for saying the wrong thing. Do not put words in my mouth.”
Another situation is when someone falsely claims another person said something. The other person might protest: “I did not say that.
Some people have lots of money because they were born into a very rich family. There is an expression for this, too. You might say such a person, “was born with a silver spoon in his mouth.” This rich person is the opposite of a person who lives from hand to mouth. This person is very poor and only has enough money for the most important things in life, like food. Parents might sometimes keep a child off sweet food as a form of punishment for saying bad things. For example, if a child says things she should not say to her parents, she might be described as a mouthy child. The parents might even tell the child to stop mouthing off. But enough of all this talk. I have been running my mouth long enough. 31．When will a person probably say“do not bad mouth me”？ A．When he feels down. B．When he is regretful.

Singaporeans are never bothered by the occasional thunderstorm. However, we know that if it rains for long continuous periods, there will be more serious effects. Just recently the main shopping street of Orchard Road was flooded and some part of Bukit Timah was impassable to traffic. People reacted by writing in to the newspaper to complain about this! We forget that other countries suffer much worse effects. Elsewhere, heavy tropical(热带 的) storms often result in floods that ruin crops especially in Thailand and Malaysia. This in turn usually means that the price of rice and vegetables here in Singapore will rise because we import these products from them. If there is a typhoon or tsunami, thousands of lives are lost too. This happened in Indonesia and Phuket in Thailand in 2004 and it serves to remind us of how Mother Nature can cause great damage. Weather patterns in general have changed dramatically in recent years. Scientists believe that global warming and the resulting melting of the polar icecap has caused the level of the ocean to rise. This in turn causes flooding of lowlying areas in countries where the land is rather flat and some parts of which is below water level. It is believed that human activities have caused Mother Nature to show her extreme anger, so it is now important that we really work together to cut down on harmful activities, for example, illegal logging(伐木) or irresponsible forestburning to clear
land for farming. 36．From Paragraph 1, we can see that most Singaporeans love________. A．making complaints B．going out for picnics C．doing windowshopping D．traveling along the coast 37 ． What will happen in Singapore if there are floods in its neighboring countries?

A．the arrival of heavy tropical storms B．the import of rice and vegetables C．the rising price of rice and vegetables D．the loss of lives in natural disasters 39．Which of the following shows how the lowlying areas are flooded? a. global warming b. the rise in ocean level c. harmful human activities d. the flooding of lowlying areas e. the melting of the polar icecap A．c→a→e→b→d C．c→a→b→e→d B．a→c→e→b→d D．d→a→c→b→e
40．What should we do in order not to make Mother Nature angry? A．Clear more land for farming. B．Reduce harmful human activities. C．Bring down the price of food. D．Improve the quality of weather. D
All parents know that one of their most important tasks is to prepare their children for an independent life, but any parent can tell you that it's hard to let go of your children. That balance between keeping your children safe and allowing them to learn from their own mistakes can be heartbreaking. Years of experience means that parents often do know best, but on the other hand, the young, being less bound by tradition, are often more creative, more able to find new solutions to old problems. Revolutions_are_led_by_the_young. Good teachers make the growth of critical(批判性的) thinking easier in their students, only to find that this can lead to a questioning of the teachers' basic beliefs. Schools encourage parents to become involved, but are often embarrassed when parents have reservations about some of the educational methods being used. Governments encourage unimportant groups to empower themselves in order to participate fully in the development process. And they are often surprised when the new leaders of these groups turn around and attack the policies of
