第二部分： 阅读理解 （共 20 小题；每小题 2 分， 满分 40 分） 第一节：阅读下列短文，从每题的四个选项（A、B、C、D）中，选出最佳选项 （共 15 小题， 满分 30 分） A Last week my youngest son and I visited my father at his new home in Tucson, Arizona. He moved there a few years ago, and I was eager to see his new place and meet his friends. My earliest memories of my father are of a tall, handsome successful man devoted to his work and family, but uncomfortable with his children. As a child I loved him; as a school girl and young adult I feared him and felt bitter about him. He seemed unhappy with me unless I got straight A’s and unhappy with my boyfriends if their fathers were not as “successful” as he was. Whenever I went out with him on weekends, I used to struggle to think up things to say, feeling on guard. On the first day of my visit, we went out with one of my father’s friends for lunch at an outdoor cafe. We walked along that afternoon, did some shopping, ate
on the street table, and laughed over my son’s funny facial expressions. Gone was my father’s critical (挑剔的) air and strict rules. Who was this person I knew as my father, who seemed so friendly and interesting to be around What had held him back before? The next day my dad pulled out his childhood pictures and told me quite a few stories about his own childhood. Although our times together became easier over the years, I never felt closer to him at that moment. After so many years, I’m at last seeing another side of my father. And in so doing, I’m delighted with my new friend . My dad, in his new home in Arizona, is back to me from where he was. 21.

C Surfing for hours on the Internet consumes a lot of electricity and is harmful to the environment. However, a new ecological PC saves energy as it operates：it produces about 70 percent less CO2 than conventional computers. As a work tool, a le isure activity resource, and a personal assistant, computers seem to be everywhere. Yet the environmental performance for today's computers leaves a lot to be improved: they rapidly become out of date, and typically contain poisonous materials and individual parts that are difficult to recycle. Moreover, they consume plenty of power whose production, in return, causes the release of CO2 into the atmosphere. Employees at the MicroPro Company in Ireland, teaming with colleagues at the Fraunhofer Institute for Reliability and Microintegration IZM in Berlin, have engineered a wooden—frame computer with reduced environment impact. As the first computer for its class, the“iameco”(pronounced I-am-eco) was awarded the “EU Ecolabel”, the European Union’s environmental label. “This touch-screen PC has very low energy consumption over the entire life cycle” explains Alexander Schlosser, scientist at IZM. Over the full product life cycle, it releases 70 percent less CO2 than a typical desktop PC with monitor. In addition, it can be easily recycled. Of the materials used, 98 percent can be recycled. Indeed, 20 percent of the computer can be reused immediately—in other words, many parts can be reused for repairing other computers—such as parts of the wooden frame.
29. Paragraph 2 mainly talks about______________. A. the popularity of computers B. the latest development of computers C. the improvement of computers D. the environmental pollution of computers 30. The “EU Ecolabel” is probably awarded to_____________. A. products made of wood B. products saving energy C. products releasing much CO2 D. products made by the EU 31. The wooden frame is used because__________. A. it has better appearance B. it can reduce weight C. it doesn’t break easily D. it can be recycled directly 32. The author uses figures in the last paragraph to______________. A. record valuable data B. give detailed description C. provide concrete evidence D. introduce a research method D Chinese media and Internet users on Monday condemned( 谴责 ) a lack of morals in society after a toddler(学步的小孩)was struck twice by two different vans and left bleeding on the road as more than a dozen bystanders did nothing to help the seriously injured girl. The incident, captured by a surveillance camera and aired by Southern Television Guangdong (TVS), showed the two-year-old girl was knocked down and run over by a white van on a narrow market street on the afternoon of Oct. 13, in Foshan City of Guangdong Province. The driver fled the scene of the accident, leaving the girl to bleed on the sidewalk. Over the next six minutes, more than a dozen people walked by the girl, yet not one individual did anything to help her. The girl was then hit a second time by another van before an elderly trash collector came to her aid and brought the attention of the girl’s mother, according to the video and eyewitnesses. Doctors said that the girl, who was put on life support after being hospitalized, remains in a deep coma. The girl’s parents, who are migrants living in the city, are now with her. Police said the drivers of both vehicles have been arrested. However, the indifference of the bystanders shown in the video has shocked the public, as Internet forums have boiled with anger, and people are questioning the morality of society. High moral standards were once triumphed as national pride in China where individuals known for selflessly helping others were adored by the public. But in recent years, the perc eption of a decline of morals has become a hot topic as profit and materialism are recognized to be affecting society’s values. On Sept. 2. an 88-year-old man in central China collapsed, his face striking the pavement. Yet, no one came to his aid, and he ended up choking to death on the blood from his nose. Some have linked the absence of good models to a previous case in which a man trying to help an elderly woman who fell was accused of harming her. A strong chorus of opinion on the Internet says laws should exempt（免除）models from responsibility, yet laws themselves cannot solve society’s morality dilemma.
Cao Lin, a China Youth Daily commentator, said in a signed article published on Monday that the worry of responsibility should not be an excuse for not helping, and this case exposes the decline of humanity in Chinese society. 33. What happened to the two-year-old girl? A．Nobody helped her after she was struck by two different vans. B．She died immediately after she was hit a second time. C．An old trash collector saved her and attracted her mother’s attention. D．Journalists from TVS captured her story by using a camera. 34. According to Cao Lin, what is the f undamental reason for not helping the girl? A．The worry of responsibility. B．Lack of laws that exempt role models from responsibility. C．The fear of being accused of harming her. D．The decline of humanity in society. 35. Where is the article probably taken from? A．A news report. B．A fashion magazine. C．A science fiction. D．An education column. 第二节 根据短文内容, 从短文后的选项中选出能填入空白处的最佳选项, 并在答题卡上将 该项涂黑。选项中有两项为多余选项。 （共 5 小题；每小题 2 分,满分 10 分） As you’re busy with your studies, the weeks during the Spring Festival can be a time when training and healthy eating plans go out of the window.
