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. B．No more than eight hours. C．Eight hours or so. D．No less than eight hours. 27．What does “sound sleep” mean? A．Long sleep. B．Fast sleep. C．Complete sleep. D．Sleep without any sound. 28．Which of the following is helpful to good sleep? A．Keeping good habits. B．Staying up late night. C．Eating something at bedtime. D．Forming the habit of taking sleepproducing drug. 29．The amount of sleep a person needs has something to do with________. A．his age C．his weight B．his height D．his character
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. C．When he is spoken ill of. D．When he gets angry. 32．What will the person say if he feels sorry for what he has said? A．Do not bad mouth me. B．Stop mouthing off. C．Do not put words in my mouth.

D．he has enough to eat 34． By saying “I have been running my mouth long enough”， the speaker means “________”． A．I have run a long way B．I have talked too much C．I have learned a lot D．I have been a mouthy person 35．What is mainly talked about in the text? A．Expressions about the word “mouth”． B．Functions of the organ “mouth”． C．Opinions about “mouthy people”． D．Meanings of the word “mouth”． C In Singapore, most of us love windowshopping while some others enjoy having a picnic at East Coast Park or Changi Beach on sunny days. 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．Heavy tropical storms will follow shortly. B．The price of rice and vegetables will go up. C．Many people will write in to the newspaper. D．More rice and vegetables will be imported. 38．The underlined word “it” in Paragraph 1 refers to________. 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 that same government. The rebellions(叛逆的) young and the newly unimportant groups are important in social development. They are not necessarily representatives of those they want to represent or not realistic in their demands, but their voices must be heard. Good parents know that just forbidding particular behaviors does not prevent their children from finding ways to engage in these forbidden activities. Indeed, sometimes the forbidden fruit is more inviting, just because it is not accepted by authority. Parents must work with their children to educate them on the facts, know as much as possible about the lives of their children, provide a good example, encourage more wholesome activities but also support their children when they don't follow what is expected of them. But the most important point is that they also need to learn how to let go. 41．By saying “Revolutions_are_led_by_the_young”， the author indicates that young people are more________. A．conventional C．creative B．realistic D．heartbreaking
42．From the second paragraph we know________. A．teachers' basic beliefs should be questioned by students B．schools encourage parents to question their education methods
C．government is satisfied with the new leaders' attack on the policies D．the voice of the rebellious young should be heard by the government 43．In order to educate children well, parents should________. A．forbid particular behaviors in their daily life B．know them well and set a good example to them C．educate them with facts and expect much of them D．know as much as possible as their children
44.From the passage we can learn that the author prefers________. A．free parenting B．traditional parenting C．critical parenting D．smart parenting 45．What is the BEST title of the passage? A．Letting Go—for Children's Independent Life B．Parents' Tasks—in Children's Development C．Way of Growth—for the Young Groups D．Teaching Methods—for Teachers and Schools Ⅳ.信息匹配(共 5 小题；每小题 2 分，满分 10 分) (2013· 惠州市实验中学高一段考)阅读下列应用文及相关信息， 并按照要求匹 配信息。 首先请阅读下列 William J.

【参考范文】 Vivek had failed twelve times before he finally succeeded in gaining the admission into the Indian Navy Academy in his thirteenth attempt, which shows that perseverance and efforts can help get through all obstacles and pave the way to the final success. In reality, no one can resist the sweet taste of success but success can hardly be achieved without perseverance. In this hard struggle, some may submit to the difficulties, while others with strong willpower will persevere and my uncle is such an admirable person. My uncle had to walk for an hour to the town to receive his middle school education. In the first year, he had ten peers. In junior three, however, he had to cover the long distance alone because the other nine fellows quitted school for the great hardships. But my uncle persevered and didn't stop his pursuit of ideal and now he is a successful engineer. We are bound to meet challenges on our life journey. But as long as we hold a dream that can greatly motivate us, we will move forward. It is also advisable that we fulfill our dream by dividing it into small goals so that it may seem more accessible, which can help us persevere till the end.
