More than four million people around the world are bitten by snakes each year. At least 125,000 of these people die, while almost three million others are seriously injured. Doctors and researchers say we do not have enough good treatments for poisonous snakebites. To help improve the situation, an international project called Global Snakebite Initiative (GSI) has been formed. Poisonous snakebites are most common in rural areas of developing countries with hot climates. Many of the victims are agricultural workers and children in Asia and southern Africa. Shortages of antivenom ( 抗蛇毒素) medicine and the treatments for snakebites are common there, while existing supplies may be of low quality, or unsuitable for local needs. Doctor Herbert Winkel of GSI says antivenom treatment is also too costly for many of the poor people who need it most. The GSI is trying to develop high quality antivenom treatment and improve medical training for patient care. Another goal is to help manufacturers (制造商) of antivenom medicines improve their products and teach communities about snakebites and first aid. It wants more research and better reporting systems, and aims to help national health officials choose antivenom appropriate to their countries. The drugs are developed from the venom of poisonous snakes. For example, laboratory workers in Costa Rica may collect venom from highly poisonous Fer de Lance snakes in order to make antivenom for the snakebites. However, the antivenom that cures the bite of one kind of snake may not be effective for that of another, and treatment for a cobra (眼镜蛇) bite in the Philippines may not work for someone bitten by a similar snake in West Africa. Experts look forward to improving the treatment of snakebites worldwide, but the best ways to reduce deaths and injuries from snakebites are education and prevention. 51.Where are poisonous snakebites most common? A. In the urban areas of developing countries with cold climate. B. In the urban areas of developing countries with hot climate. C. In the farming areas of developing countries with cold climate. D. In the farming areas of developing countries with hot climate. 52. The GSI was established to ________. A. collect venom from highly poisonous snakes B. improve treatment for poisonous snakebites C. educate people how to avoid being bitten by poisonous snakes D. provide financial support for studies of poisonous snakebites 53. According to the passage, poisonous snakebites ________. A. can be treated by drugs developed from the venom of poisonous snakes B. can be cured with the same antivenom C. are most common in countries with cool climates D. are more serious in Asia and southern Africa 54. Which of the following functions are performed by the GSI? a. Helping improve the ability to produce antivenom medicine.
b. Telling people how to use antivenom medicine properly. c. Teaching people about snakebites and first aid. d. Helping choose appropriate antivenom. A. abc B. abd C. acd D. bcd 55. What has been discussed in the passage? A. How to carry out first aid for snakebites? B. What medicine is most effective against snakebites? C. How to tell poisonous snakes from common snakes? D. How many people are bitten by snakes every year?
B A simple flower made headlines in the British press last week. How could that be? British Prime Minister David Cameron and his ministers were attending a reception hosted by Chinese Premier Li Keqiang in the Great Hall of the People in Beijing. They insisted on wearing poppies(罂粟花) in their buttonholes. What’s wrong with that? According to the Global Times, Chinese officials apparently had asked the UK delegation （代表团）not to wear poppies. The British said that poppies meant a great deal to them on that day and they would wear them all the same. So what’s the significance of the poppy? It’s a flower which has different cultural and symbolic meanings for British and Chinese people. From the Chinese point of view, the poppy is a symbol of China’s humiliation at the hands of European powers in the Opium Wars（鸦片战争） of the 19th century. Britain forced China to open the borders to trade – including in the opium – which was made from poppies grown in India. Yet from the British viewpoint the poppy is a reminder of the killing during World War I. Red poppies grew on the battlefields of Flanders in Belgium where many thousands of British soldiers died or were buried. Since then, Poppy Day (November 11) has become a time in the UK to wear poppies and remember the sacrifices of British soldiers and civilians in times of war. So you can see that the poppy sets off strong feelings in the hearts of Chinese and British people for different reasons. And it makes sense for us to try to understand each other’s standpoint. Of course cultural differences can also be interesting and funny. And what one nation thinks is an acceptable gift may be viewed differently by their guests from overseas. US President Barack Obama gave a gift of an iPod to Britain’s Queen – a dull person with no interest in music. Obama also presented Gordon Brown with a fine selection of American movies. But they were in US format and impossible to play on British DVD players. Many countries have diplomats stationed overseas. Diplomats provide information and advice to their governments back home. However, sometimes it would seem that even diplomats can overlook the cultural significance of a small flower. 56.British Prime Minister David Cameron probably attended a reception in Beijing on _________. A. January 11 B. October 1 C. November 11 D. December 31 57. The poppy reminds the Chinese of __________. A. the suffering caused by Britain during World War I B. the British soldiers who were killed and buried during World War I C. the Chinese soldiers killed during World War II D. the shame caused by European countries in the 19th century 58. The diplomatic problem in Beijing is mainly caused by __________. A. the cultural difference B. the language difference C. the translation mistake D. the different lifestyle
59. We can infer that __________. A. Britain’s Queen may not like the iPod US President Obama presented her B. Gordon Brown was fond of American movies US President Barack Obama sent him C . US President Barack Obama received a gift for music D. Britain’s Queen is not interested in art 60. What is the main idea of the 9th paragraph? A. Cultural differences can cause a big problem B. Cultural differences can also be interesting and funny C. US President Barack Obama likes to present gifts to other leaders D. US leaders and British leaders get along well with each other C Have you ever dreamed of visiting a planet in the Milky Way (银河系)? While the trip sounds exciting, it would take years and years to reach your destination. So in the future, bedtime for astronauts may be more than a few hours of regular shut eyes. They would have to sleep for years. European researchers are now conducting hibernation( 冬眠 ) experiments. The study may help them understand whether humans could ever sleep through the years it would take for a spaceflight to distant planets. "If there was an effective technology, it could make deep space travel a reality," said Mark Ayre of the European Space Agency last month. What seems like a science fiction is not completely unlikely. Researchers have been able to use chemicals to put living cells into a sleeplike state where they don’t age. They have now moved on to the small, non hibernating mammals like rats. A major challenge is the fact that cells can be very simple systems, whereas body organs are far more complex. "It’s like moving from a simple Apple computer to a supercomputer," said Marco Biggiogera, a hibernation researcher at Italy’s University of Pavia. Just like bears and frogs, the hibernation of human beings would cause a person’s metabolism (新陈代谢) to lower so they would need less energy. Medical research, however, is just half of a spaceflight hibernation system. There is a challenge of designing a suitable protective shelter. Such a shelter would provide the proper environment for hibernation, such as the proper temperature. It would also have to monitor life functions and serve the physiological needs of the hibernator. According to Ayre, the six person Human Outer Planets Exploration Mission (使 命) to Jupiter’s moon (木星的卫星) Callisto, could be an opportunity to use human hibernation. The mission aims to send six persons on a five year flight to Callisto, where they will spend 30 days, in 2045. 61.What does the underlined word in the second paragraph “them” refer to? A. astronauts B. European researchers C. hibernation experiments D. six persons 62.According to the article, the hibernation research ________. A. has made some progress B. is always a science fiction C. has already finished successfully D. is just an idea 63.In a hibernating state, a person needs ________. A. less sleep B. more food C. more movement D. less energy 64.The first try of the hibernation technology ________ the six person Human Outer Planets Exploration Mission to Jupiter’s moon Callisto. A. will be B. has been planned for C. may be D. is certain to be 65.What is the best title of the article? A. Welcome to our space travel B. Hibernation study for space travel
C. To hibernate, to live longer D. Welcome to the Milky Way 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。 选项中有两项为 多余选项。 Now you are going to college. Choosing a college major is one of the most important choices you can make about your education and future career. 66 . What you study in school often determines what career opportunities you will have when you graduate. There are a number of steps you can take before making a final decision. 67 . If you enjoy marine life, for instance, you should consider a marine biology major. If you love star-gazing, consider becoming an astronomer. Next, consider the academic subjects in which you excel(优秀). If you’re not strong in math you might be better off not choosing engineering. 68 . Compare the list of your interests with the list of your talents and see which fields overlap(交叉). Once you’ve established a list of potential career fields, research them further to determine which college majors are most proper. 69 . If you struggle with these steps, consider looking for outside help. Choosing a college major you will enjoy is important. You might find college life to be less stressful if you enjoy your classes. 70 . Perhaps most importantly, choosing the correct major may improve your overall happiness and quality of life. A. Your teacher is there to help with just this sort of dilemma. B. Then you can get an idea for what courses you’ll need to take. C. It may even be more important than where you attend college. D. Your future career choices may rely heavily on what you study in college. E. You might also avoid the unpleasantness that comes with changing your major. F. If you are good at English you might choose to become an author or a journalist. G. Begin by making a list of your personal interests and careers which correspond with them. 第四部分： 填空。 第一节： 71 题： 用必修五第一至第五单元单词表的单词正确形式填空， 否则不得分。 （共 10 小题，每小题 1 分，共 10 分） （1）He has made great c_________ to a space development program. （2）The car s_________ into the ditch（沟渠）. （3）I recognized her i__________ I saw her. （4）A mosquito had bitten her and her whole arm had s_________ up. （5）What’s seventeen p_________ nine? （6）Madeleine spent the day _________(帮助)Matron with her work. . （7）Have you had any _________(早先的) experience, or is this kind of work new to you? （8）The decision met with the committee’s__________(赞成) . （9）They’re promoting the use of whole, organic foods rather than _________(加 工)foods. （10）The chance for a peaceful political _________(解决) has disappeared. 第二节:72 题:课文背诵，用所背段落的正确单词的正确形式填空。 （共 10 小题，每小 题 1 分，共 10 分） ?He handed it to me and immediately hurried me through to a small room nearby for a rest.
