第二部分 阅读理解（共两节，满分 40 分） 第一节（共 15 小题；每小题 2 分，满分 30 分） 阅读下列短文，从每题所给的四个选项（A、B、C、D）中，选出最佳选项， 并在答题卡上将该项涂黑。 A A nine-year-old kid was sitting at his desk when suddenly there was a puddle (some water or liquid) between his feet and the front of his trousers was wet. He thought his heart was going to stop because he couldn’t possibly imagine how this had happened. It had never happened before, and he knew that when the boys found out he would never hear the end of it. When the girls found out, they would never speak to him again as long as he lived. He prayed this prayer, ―Dear God, I need help now! Five minutes from now I’m dead meat! ‖ He looked up from his prayer and here came the teacher with a look in her eyes that said he had been discovered. As the teacher was walking toward him, a classmate named Susie was carrying a goldfish bowl full of water. Susie tripped（绊倒） in front of the teacher and dumped （倒）the bowl of water in the boy’s lap. The boy pretended to be angry, but all the while he was saying to himself, ―Thank you. God! ‖ Now all of a sudden, instead of being the object of ridicule(嘲笑), the boy was the object of sympathy （同情） . The teacher rushed him downstairs and gave him gym shorts to put on while his trousers dried out. All the other children were on their hands and knees cleaning up around his desk. The sympathy was wonderful. But as life would have it, the ridicule that should have been his had been transferred（转移）to someone else—Susie. She tried to help, but they told her to get out. When school was over, the boy walked over to Susie and whispered, ―You did that on purpose, didn’t you?‖ Susie whispered back, ―I wet my trousers once, too!‖ 21. The underlined sentence in Paragraph 1 means ________. A. the boys would never play with him B. the boys would treat him as usual C. he would hardly hear any praise from the boys D. he would be laughed at by the boys endlessly 22. After Susie dumped water in his lap, the boy was in a state of _________. A. excitement B. relief C. anxiety D. anger 23. What did the other kids do after the incident? A. They offered him dry clothes. B. They laughed at the boy rudely. C. They helped the boy do the cleaning. D. They urged the boy to get out angrily. 24. Why did Susie dump water in the boy’s lap? A. The boy asked her to do so. B. She just did it by accident. C. The teacher tripped her on purpose. D. She knew the boy’s embarrassment.

B Most teens I meet these days lack basic social courtesy when dealing with people. My own son, who basically grew up with his grandmother, the original manners expert, has perfect table manners. This is partly because he was exposed to manners at a very young age. However, when we eat at home, he would not practice manners. So I asked him why. He said, ―I behave the way I am supposed to behave when I’m out, but when I am at home I want to be comfortable.‖ That’s when I realized that most parents, myself included, do teach their children the proper way to behave outside the home, but they are also brought up to believe that at home, anything goes. My answer to him was ―good behavior has nothing to do with where you are or whom you are with‖. Then he answered, ―But I behave properly when I’m with others so that they think better of me .‖ And that is when I realized that I was doing things all wrong. I explained to him that it had nothing to do with what people think. This confused him even more. So I went on to explain that behavior, whether in your everyday interaction（互动） with people or at the dining table at home, is an expression of who you are. Well, at the age of 13, he got it. So basically, what I am saying is that teaching your children manners comes with the underlying lesson that it is not about what to do or not to do, but rather , who they are. This way it is not mechanical（机械教条的）: it comes from within. Teach your teens or children the basic courtesy of greeting their friends’ parents and introducing themselves when they go to someone’s home. Teach teenage boys to open the door of a car, or any door for that matter, for any girl, whether they are their girlfriends or not. This includes holding elevator doors or letting women step out of the elevator first. Just remember that teenage boys who practice good manners and courtesy grow up to become men who respect people in general. 25. What does the underlined word ―courtesy‖ in Paragraph 1 mean? A. responsibility B. principle C. manners D. interaction 26. Why did ―my son‖ behave differently at home and out of home? A. He wanted to be a special boy. B. He wanted to be more comfortable at home. C. He just followed what his grandmother’s said. D. He thought that behavior was very cool. 27. What do most parents do with their children’ manners? A. Most parents often stress their children’ good manners outside the home. B. Most parents pay more attention to their children’ manners at home.

C. Most parents pay no attention to their children’s good manners. D. Most parents are too busy to be concerned about their children’s manners. 28. The author has written this passage in order to ______. A. show his/her son and the son’s good behavior to teenage boys B. introduce his/her son’s good manners to us C. tell teenage boys to form good manners and learn to respect people around D. tell parents good manners is about their children’s usual way of behavior and inner quality C As you grow older, you’ll be faced with some challenging decisions—like whether to cut class or try cigarettes. Making decisions on your own is hard enough, but when other people get involved and try to pressure you one way or another it can be even harder. People who are your age, like your classmates, are called peers. When they try to influence how you act, to get you to do something, it’s called peer pressure. Peers can have a positive influence on each other. Maybe another student in your science class taught you an easy way to remember the planets in the solar system. Maybe you got others excited about your new favorite book, and now everyone’s reading it. These are examples of how peers positively influence each other. Sometimes peers influence each other in negative ways. For example, a few kids in school might try to get you to cut class with them; your soccer friend might try to convince you to be mean to another player and never pass him the ball. It is tough to be the only one who says ―no‖ to peer pressure, but you can do it. Paying attention to your own feelings and beliefs about what is right and wrong can help you know the right thing to do. You’ve probably had a parent or teacher advising you to ―choose your friends wisely.‖ Peer pressure is a big reason why they say this. If you choose friends who don’t cut class, smoke cigarettes, or lie to their parents, then you probably won’t do these things either, even if other kids do. If you continue to face peer pressure and you’re finding it difficult to handle, talk to someone you trust. Don’t feel guilty if you’ve made a mistake or two. 29. For whom is the passage most probably written? A. Students. B. Parents. C. Teachers. D. Doctors. 30. In the last three paragraphs, the author mainly_____. A. explains why friendship is so important B. gives advice on how to deal with peer pressure C. discusses how peers influence us D. shows how to make more good friends
