2.【题文】 The modern world is full of useful objects that were invented by someone, from spoons and chopsticks in our kitchens to the Ipads in our handbags Each invention is an example of the creative power of the human mind. Where do inventors get their inspirations(灵感)? The inspiration behind each of these inventions varies. Take the shopping cart as an example. Sylvan Goldman was a grocery store owner. Like most businessmen, he wished that his customers would buy more so that he could make more money. He knew 山 at if they could carry more goods easily as they were shopping,山 en his sales would go up. While thinking about the problem one night, he had an idea. Working with a local handyman named Fred Young, he designed the first shopping cart. Today, retailers who use shopping carts sell more goods and make more profits. Nature has also inspired inventors throughout history. This is what happened to George de Mestral one day. While hunting with his dog in the Swiss Alps, he noticed how the burs(剌球) of certain plants stuck to his clothing and to his dog' s fur. After examining them under a microscope, he found they had tiny hooks that could easily stick to the fibers of clothing or animal hide. For the next ten years, George de Mestral searched for the hest way to produce his idea. The result of his original inspiration was Velcro, which is used in many modem objects, including sportswear, shoes, automobiles, and even space suits. These examples show us that there are at least two possible inspirations for human Creativity in the world of inventions - profit and nature. No doubt, the future will continue to breathe new life into the economies of the world with fresh ideas and inventions. How many of their creations will be inspired by natural phenomena? The world's problems require creativity and we can expect best solutions from future generations. 1. Why did sales go up in Sylvan Goldman's grocery store after he began providing shopping carts? A. Because grocery stores without shopping carts made less money B. Because he lowered the prices of his goods. C. Because customers liked the shopping cart’s creative design. D. Because customers were able to carry more items when shopping. 2. According to the article, which invention shows how nature inspires us? A. The bur. B. The shopping cart. C. Velcro. D. Spoon. 3. Which of the following statements would the author most likely disagree with? A. The future does not promise many useful inventions. B. There are many intereting inventions in the world today C.

Just the same, there is nothing more satisfying or more rewarding than revenge. The purpose is not to harm your victims but to let them know that you are upset about something that they are doing to you. Careful planning can provide you with relief from annoying coworkers, gossiping friends or talkative family members. Coworkers who make comments about the fact that you are always fifteen minutes late for work can be taken care of very simply. All you have to do is get up extra one day. Before the sun comes up, drive to each coworker’s house. Reach under the cover of your coworker’s car and disconnect the center wire that leads to the distributor cap, the car will be unharmed, but it will not start, and your friends at work will all be late for work on the same day. If you’re lucky, your boss might notice that you are the only one there and will give you a raise. Gossiping friends at school are also perfect targets for a simple act of revenge. A way to trap either male or female friends is to leave false messages on their lockers. If the friend that you want to get is male, leave a message that a certain girl would like him to stop by her house later that day. With any luck her boyfriend will be there. The girl won’t know what’s going on, and the victim will be so embarrassed that he probably won’t leave his home for a month. When Morn and Dad and your sisters and brothers really begin to annoy you, harmless revenge may be just the way it makes them quiet down for a while. The dinner table is a likely place. Just before the meal begins, throw a handful of raisins (葡萄干) into the food. Wait about five minutes and, after everyone has begun to eat, cover your mouth with your hand and begin to make strange noises. When they ask you what the matter is, point to a raisin and yell. ―Bugs!‖ They’ll throw their food in the dustbin, jump into the car, and head for McDonald’s. That night you’ll have your first quiet, peaceful meal in a long time. A well-planned revenge does not have it hurt anyone. The object is simply to let other people know that they are beginning to bother you. 1. According to the passage, a harmless revenge is ________. A. to amuse the victim B. to hurt nobody emotionally C. to react to those who bother you D. to prevent one from disturbing others 2. As a harmless revenge, you might come first and get a raise by ________. A. pleasing your boss B. destroying your colleagues’ cars C. making your colleagues come late D. getting up earlier than your colleagues 3. The family members threw their food in the dustbin because ________. A. they wanted to eat out B. they didn’t like the food with raisins C. they wanted to have a peaceful meal D. they thought their food had been ruined 4. The topic of the passage is how to ________. A. make a harmless revenge B. silence gossiping friends C. avoid talkative family members D. deal with annoying coworkers

This article gives some suggestions on how to give an effective speech. So, you have to give a speech—and you’re terrified. You get nervous, you forget what you want to say, you stumble(结巴) over words, you talk too long, and you bore your audience. Later you think, ―Thank goodness, it’s over. I’m just no good at public speaking. I hope I never have to do that again.‖ Cheer up! It doesn’t have to be that bad. Here are some simple steps to take the pain out of speech making. Ask yourself the purpose of your speech. What is the occasion? Why are you speaking? Then, gather as many facts as you can on your subject. Spend plenty of time doing your research.

Use as many examples as possible, and use pictures, charts, and graphs if they will help you make your points more clearly. Never forget your audience. Don’t talk over their heads, and don’t talk down to them. Treat your audience with respect. They will appreciate your thoughtfulness. Just remember: be prepared. Know your subject, your audience, and the occasion. Be brief. Say what you have to say and then stop. And be yourself. Let your personality come through so that you make person-to-person contact with your audience. If you follow these simple steps, you’ll see that you don’t have to be afraid of public speaking.

First of all, you should have received the letter I sent out on April 2 advising of the transition (过 渡) arrangements to new leadership at ISM (International School of Moscow). In that letter I pointed out that Dr. Paul Malone will be arriving in Moscow on Monday, May 4th, and that I will work with him during that week to ensure smooth transition. My last day at ISM will be Friday, May 8th. Several people have asked me why I required Dr. Malone to come early. There are many problems
facing ISM at the moment which have major implications (影响) for the future, and it makes sense for the new director to come aboard before the end of the school year. This will give him the chance to play a major role in the planning process for 2014—2015 and beyond. The fact that Paul Malone is able to arrive in early May is good for the school. I have been working closely with him, and will do everything possible to see that he can move in easily when I leave. From here I will go to Hong Kong for a couple of weeks to spend time in my new situation, and then I will return to the United States for a few weeks’ vacation. In the most recent edition of the Compass(a kind of paper of ISM), I wrote briefly what I consider to be the major challenge for ISM in the future. I am sure that the new leadership of the school will be able to face those challenges in an active manner, which will ensure a strong future for the school. I shall certainly watch the progress of the school with interest. The results of the school for the past few years have been quite outstanding, and I fully expect that level of performance to continue. 1. We can infer from the text that the writer was the ________ of ISM. A. director B. employee C. teacher D. student 2. Why should Dr. Malone come to ISM early? A. To work closely with the author. B. To do everything possible for the school. C. To move in easily when the author leaves. D. To work with the author for a few days and make a future plan. 3. The underlined word ―situation‖ in the third paragraph means ________. A. place B. job C. appointment D. condition 4. From the text, we learn that ________. A. Paul Malone is a capable man B. the writer is a best friend of Paul Malone’s C. Paul Malone will work with the writer for several years D. the writer will do his best to help Paul Malone to work well at ISM

【答案】One possible version: With the rapid development of the mobile service, more and more people are using Weixin in their daily life. Seeing her friends and neighbors have circles of friends and chat anywhere and anytime, my mother bought a new cell phone and wanted to do that as others. But she had no idea how to do that. Noticing that, I showed her how to do it. When I was not at home, she still got confused. So I drew some pictures about the mobile, even each step for her. Day by day, She could operate it very smoothly. On watching her bright face when she chatted on Weixin or showed it to her neighbors, I felt satisfied because I could finally do something for my mother. 【解析】 【试源】2015 届陕西省普通高中示范校高三下学期零模考试 【结束】 18.【题文】Europe is home to a variety of cultural treasures. Lonely Planet, the world’s largest travel guide publisher, has offered pairs of cities for culturehungry but timepoor travelers. London and Paris It takes you about two hours to travel from London to Paris by Eurostar, a highspeed railway service. The two capital cities have been competing in fashion, art and nightlife for decades—but each secretly looks up to the other. No one can doubt the magnificent and impressive beauty of Paris’ Louvre Museum, but if you want to save money, you cannot skip the British Museum free to visit. Compared with London, Paris has more outdoor attractions such as the beautiful green walkway La Promenade Plantee. In Paris, you’ll see diners linger over red wine. While in London, you can try some afternoon tea, eat fish and chips or salted cake. Vienna and Bratislava Austrian capital Vienna and Slovakia city Bratislava are an hour apart by train. But since they are linked by the Danube River, the best way to travel is by ship. A tour of the two cities is the perfect way to experience everything from 17th century’s Habsburg dynasty splendor to sci?fi restaurants. Vienna is famous for Mozart and imperial palaces. You can appreciate the perfect meeting of architecture and nature in the grand Schonbrunn Palace, and reward yourself with a cup of Vienna coffee, which has made its way to the world’s cultural heritage list. Bratislava is best known for its fine dining—the remarkable UFO restaurant. You can enjoy a meatladen dinner here in an amazing setting. 1.

In 2004, when Massachusetts Senator(参议员) John Kerry was the Democratic Party’s nominee（被提名者） for the presidency, a little-known senator from Illinois gave the keynote speech at the Democratic National Convention. That senator was Obama. It was a remarkable speech—poetic, and inspiring. The people who heard it would remember it for a long time. Since 2004, Obama has written and delivered thousands of speeches. These are usually praised for two reasons: he treats the audiences like intelligent adults, and he is able to express complicated ideas in an easy, natural way. Before becoming president, Obama was a lawyer, a college professor, and a successful writer. The skills he needed to succeed in his previous jobs have also contributed to his success as a speechmaker. Writing team: Obama has a team of people who write his speeches. The writers chat with Obama for hours about what he wants to say. They listen to recordings of past presidential addresses and seek advice from advisers. Obama usually edits and rewrites the drafts several times. Obama’s tricks for a lighthearted speech that stays on message: Make fun of the guests. Obama starts his speech by gently teasing his guests. His opening lines grab the audience’s attention while giving them an opportunity to relax and laugh at themselves and each other. Make fun of himself. A good rule for speechmakers: If you’re going to make a joke about someone else, be sure to make one about yourself, too. Obama mocks his own poor choices for filling the position of Commerce Secretary, saying, ―No President in history has ever named three Commerce Secretaries like this quickly.‖ 1. Obama made the poetic and inspiring speech in 2004 as ______. A. president B. a senator C. a nominee for the presidency D. a secretary 2. What’s the meaning of the underlined word in paragraph 2? A. Difficult to understand. B. Easy to understand. C. Different from others. D. Interesting to say. 3. According to paragraph 3, we know that ______. A. Obama writes his speech himself B. Obama is serious with his speech C. the writers never listen to recordings of past presidential speeches D. the writers chat with Obama only for minutes before writing
4. What’s the best title of the passage? A. Secret of Obama’s successful speeches. B. Obama’s successful speeches. C. Obama’s way of making speeches. D. Problems of Obama’s speeches. 【答案】BABA 【解析】 【试源】2016 届山西省忻州一中、长治二中等校高二上学期期中联考 【结束】 20.【题文】Last week, after learn a lot about recycling and other ways to help with the Earth, our class decided to teach people around about Earth Day.

Bring clothes to keep you warm when wet, like a waterproof jacket. Avoid cotton, which traps damp. 2 Take basic precaution, such as waterproof matches, a folding saw, a good knife, a first-aid kit, a flash light, and batteries. The minute you think you might get lost, stop. 3 And you should stay calm and think rationally(理性地). If you are not alone, focusing on the needs of others can help hold your own fears at bay. Keeping a sense of humor helps too, it reduces stress and promotes creative thinking. In general, people who try to find their own way out are far worse than those who stay put(呆在原 处). 4 In a wide-open area, make a signal with colorful gear, make a big X out of rock, or dig a shallow trench, which are easy to spot from above. You can go several days without eating, so in most cases, you’d better not search for food, since there are lots of poisonous plants in the wild. But you need to stay hydrated(含水的). 5 If you are lost in your car, stay there: You are more visible to rescuers. And the car provides shelter. A. Stay visible so anyone searching can see you. B. First, you’ve got to acknowledge you’re in trouble. C. And you have no idea where to go. D. The search-and-rescue people call it death clothes. E. First of all find a shelter and stay in it in order to keep dry.
F. These suggestions may keep you alive in emergencies. G. If you run out of water, it’s usually better to drink from a stream with suspect water than to go without.

The more Walt dreamed of a "magical park," the more imaginative and elaborate it became. The original plans for the park were on 8 acres next to the Burbank studios where his employees and families could go to relax. Although, World War II put those plans on hold. During the war, Disney had time to come up with new ideas, and creations for his magical park. It was soon clear that 8 acres wouldn't be enough. Finally in 1953, he had the Stanford Research Institute conduct a survey for a 100-acre site, outside of Los Angeles. He needed space to build rivers, waterfalls, and mountains; he would have flying elephants and giant teacups; a fairy-tale castle, moon rockets, and a scenic railway; all inside a magic kingdom he called "Disneyland." The search for the best venue for the park ended in the rural Anaheim, California with a purchase of a 160-acre orange grove near the junction of the Santa Ana Freeway (I-5) and Harbor Boulevard.Construction for Disneyland began on July 21, 1954, 12 months before the park was scheduled to open. Some 160-acres of citrus trees had been cleared and 15 houses moved to make room for the park. However, when the real designing came around, Disney met with inevitable questions. How do you make believable wild animals, that aren't real? How do you make a Mississippi paddle ship? How do you go about building a huge castle in the middle of Anaheim, California? Disney asked his movie studio staff for answers. The design of Disneyland was something never done before. There would be four uniquely different theme parts: Adventureland, Frontierland, Fantasyland and Tomorrow land. Bit by bit, Disneyland got ready for Opening Day. The staff worked around the clock to get ready. But opening day was a terrible disaster. Besides the terrible opening day conditions, the park did eventually pick up. By 1965, ten years after opening day, 50 million visitors had come through the gates. 1. The passage is mainly about___________. A. How Disneyland came into being B. The difficulties Disney met in building Disneyland C. What visitors can enjoy in Disneyland. D. A brief introduction to Disneyland 2. Which of the following dates would probably be the opening date of Disneyland? A. 1953 B. 1954 C. 1955 D. 1965 3. Which of the following statements is Not True?

We got hungry so we decided to stop for a meal in a restaurant. While we were waiting in a line, a woman came in. She was very angry and talking about a beggar who had asked her for money. In her opinion, those people had the ability to earn their bread and butter. I was feeling uncomfortable with the situation and wondering what I should say to my son later. I had told him that we should help those who were in need of help. At that time the lady said, ―Today is my birthday, and nobody can bother me.‖ I knew this was my chance to help her change her thinking and to help her feel cared for on her birthday. I asked the waitress for help, telling her I wanted to pay for the woman’s meal. The waitress looked at me in surprise. I paid for our meal and that of the woman. When the woman finished eating her food, the waitress told her that it was I who had paid for her meal. Then the woman came to our table and tried to force her money on us. She even said, ―I can’t take your money, because I didn’t help the person who asked me for money for food!‖ I just smiled and said, ―I just hope you have a very nice birthday.‖ She ended up sitting near us and talked with us. It turned out that she was crazy about animals. Hearing our stories of pet adoptions really cheered her up. ―You are a nice father,‖ she said. She left, seeming to be happier and more thoughtful about all that had happened. I’d say it was worth the price. 1. The author and his son stopped walking that morning because .

Set a proper scene Find a space for meditation. It should be private and quiet. Make sure the temperature is comfortable. Sit on a cushion (垫子) if the floor is uncomfortable. You may play soft music if you like. Take a moment to loosen up. Remember that the goal of meditation is to relax. Loosen your clothing, remove your shoes and have a good stretch. Do your best to ease any muscle tension that might keep you from achieving relaxation. Make an effort to relax your facial muscles. Focus on your breath Sit down in the space you’ve prepared. Close your eyes and breathe. Each time you breathe in, count ―one‖. Each time you breathe out, count ―one‖. The idea is to strengthen being in the moment — the last breath doesn’t matter, and the next one doesn’t matter; only this one matters. Feel your breath inflate (胀大) your lungs and push on your diaphragm (隔膜). Feel how sweet it is to inhale the fresh air. As you do this, your body will gradually begin to relax and all of your attention will be centered within your mind. Return to real life Once you feel fully centered in your mind, allow yourself to gradually drift back to real life. Move your fingers and toes and slowly wake your body up. Open your eyes and remain there for a few minutes until your senses come back, and then slowly stand up. Even if you can’t make it fully into your mind, you still get some benefits from it. If you want to feel better, you just need to practice. Set about 10 minutes around the same time every day and repeat this exercise. 1. The text is about . A. the best way to stay relaxed B. tips on how to breathe slowly C. the benefits of practicing meditation D. steps in practicing meditation for beginners 2. Which of the following can best fill in the blank? A. Forget yourself. B. Avoid being disturbed. C. Prepare yourself for it. D. Pay attention to your inner self. 3. The underlined word ―inhale‖ in the text can be replaced by ― ‖. A. look for B. take in C. keep away D. think of 4. To gain greater benefits of meditation, beginners are advised to . A. practice it in a daily basis B. listen to some popular music C. do some exercise in advance D. spend a long time in practicing it
【答案】DCBA 【解析】 【试源】2016 届山西省山大附中高二上学期期中考试 【结束】 7. 【题文】 The campaign is over. The celebrations have ended. And the work for US president-elect Barack Obama has begun. The 47-year-old politician rose to the highest post because of his stand against the war in Iraq and his plans to fix a weak economy. But what will the first 47-year-old African-American president do for race relations? Obama’s victory appears to have given blacks and other minorities a true national role model. For years, many looked to athletes and musicians for inspiration. As Darius Turner, an African-American high school student in Los Angeles, told the Los Angeles Times, ―Kobe doesn’t have to be everybody’s role model anymore.‖ Recent polls （民意测验） also suggest that Obama’s victory has given Americans new optimism about race relations. For example, a USA Today poll found that two-thirds of Americans believe relations between blacks and whites ―will finally be worked out‖. This is the most hopeful response since the question was first asked during the civil rights revolution in 1963. However, it’s still too early to tell whether Obama’s presidency will begin to solve many of the social problems facing low-income black communities. Although blacks make up only 13 percent of the US population, 55 percent of all prisoners are African-American. Such numbers can be blamed on any number of factors on America’s racist past, a failure of government policy and the collapse( 瓦 解 )of the family unit in black communities. It is unlikely that Obama will be able to reverse (扭转) such trends overnight. However, Bill Bank, an expert of African-American Studies, says that eventually young blacks need to find role models in their own communities. ―That’s not Martin Luther King, and not Barack Obama,‖ he told the Los Angeles Times. ―It’s actually the people closest to them. Barack only has so much influence.‖ In the opinion of black British politician Trevor Phillips, Obama’s rise will contribute more to multiculturalism than to race relations in the US. ―When the G8 meets, the four most important people in the room will be the president of China, the prime minister of India, the prime minister of Japan and Barak Obama,‖ he told London’s The Times newspaper. ―It will be the first time we’ve seen that on our television screens. That will be a huge psychological shift (心理转变) for both the white people and the colored ones in the world.‖ 1. For years, before Obama was elected president of the US, __________. A. Kobe was the only role model for all the blacks B. blacks could only find role models on the basketball court C. minorities in America couldn’t find role models in their real life D. American blacks had no role model who was successful in political area 2. According to Bill Bank, ____________. A. it’s better for young blacks to find role models in those who are close to them
B. young blacks should not be so much influenced by Obama C. blacks should find other role models because Obama is far from their reality D. Obama is not the proper role model for African-Americans 3. What would be the best title for this passage? A. The First African-American President B. America’s New Role Model C. Obama-- A Successful Black . D. Choosing a Right Role Model 4. What will be the huge psychological shift Trevor mentioned at the end of the passage? A. The other three leaders all support Obama. B. Obama is an African-American president. C. None of the four leaders is white. D. The other three leaders except Obama are from Asian countries. 【答案】DABC 【解析】 【试源】2016 届山西省山大附中高二上学期期中考试 【结束】 9.【题文】Necessity is the mother of invention.

He was called William Warbler, and he looked very common indeed. What made him most unusual, though, was the fact that whenever he needed to communicate he did it by singing opera (歌剧). It didn’t matter to William whether it was simply a matter of answering a brief greeting, like ―good day‖. He would clear his voice and respond, ―Gooood dayyy to youuuuuuuu... toooooo!‖ No one could get a normal spoken word out of him and no one knew how he made his living. As he lived quite simply, always wearing his same old second-hand suit, people often looked down on him. William had been in Cheekyville for some years, when, one day, word spread round town like wildfire: William had played a role in a very important opera in the nation’s capital. Everyone in the capital went to see it, and it was a great success. Everyone in Cheekyville felt it was a surprise. But something more surprising was, when William was being interviewed by reporters, he answered their questions by speaking rather than singing. And he did it with great manners, and with a clear and pleasant voice. From that day, William gave up singing at all hours. Now he did it only during his stage appearances and world tours. Some people suspected why he had changed, but others continued believing him to be somewhat mad. They wouldn’t have thought so if they had seen what William kept in his big suitcase. It was a large stone, with a hand-carved (手工雕刻的) message on it. The
message said: ―Practice, my boy. Practice every second, for you never know when your chance will come.‖ Little did people realize that he only got the role in the opera because the director had heard William singing while out buying a newspaper. 1. Why did people in Cheekyville consider William strange? A. He always carried a big suitcase. B. He always spoke by singing opera. C. He always greeted people gladly. D. He always wore an old suit. 2. Hearing the news about William, people in Cheekyville felt it was _____. A. unbelievable B. satisfying C. disappointing D. interesting 3. According to the text, William _____. A. had no idea whether he should continue doing something mad B. was nervous and didn’t know how to sing when he was interviewed C. was selling newspapers when the opera director heard him singing D. practiced singing whenever possible before he became famous 4. What can we learn from the story? A. Live and learn. B. Better late than never. C. Practice makes the master. D.

They say development, climate change and bushfires have all combined to reduce the number of wild koalas sharply. The Australian Koala Foundation said a recent survey showed the population could have dropped by more than half in the past six years. Previous estimates (估计) put the number of koalas at more than 100,000, but the latest calculations (计算) suggest there could now be as few as 43,000. The foundation collected field data from 1,800 sites and 80,000 trees to calculate the numbers. In one area in northern Queensland estimated to have 20,000 koalas a decade ago, a team of eight people could not find a single animal in four days of searching. The foundation said besides problems caused by cutting down forests, hotter and drier conditions because of global warming had reduced the nutritional (营养的) value of their staple food, eucalyptus leaves, leading to poor nutrition for them. Koalas, which live in the forests in Australia’s east and south, are very fussy (爱挑剔的) about what types of the leaves they eat. Foundation chief Deborah Tabart said: ―The koalas are missing everywhere we look. It’s
really no tree, no me. If you keep cutting down trees you don’t have any koalas.‖ She is hoping the new figures will persuade the government’s Threatened Species Steering Committee (TSSC) to list the koala as threatened. But committee chairman Bob Beeton said a decision was not likely recently and the koala’s status as one of the country’s favourite animals would not be a factor. ―There’s a number of species which are attractive and people have special feelings towards them. We don’t consider that,‖ Mr Beeton was reported as saying by the AFP agency. 1.The writer gives the example of the area in northern Queensland in Paragraph 3 to show that _____. A. the forests are being damaged heavily B. the environment is being polluted seriously C. the number of koalas is dropping quickly D. koalas usually live in wild mountainous areas 2. Global warming is an important cause of koalas’ reduction because _____. A. koalas can hardly stand the hot weather B. koalas cannot get enough water to drink C. the leaves koalas eat are losing nutritional value D. the leaves koalas eat cannot grow in hot weather 3. According to Bob Beeton, _____. A. koalas are his favourite animals B. a decision will be made to protect koalas C. they needn’t pay special attention to koalas D. koalas needn’t be protected at all 【答案】CAB 【解析】 【试源】2016 届山西省山大附中高二 3 月月考 【结束】 13.【题文】(Reuters) — A group of Chinese scientists and explorers are looking for international help to organize a new search for the country’s answer to Bigfoot, known locally as the ―Yeren‖, or ―wild man‖. Over the years, more than 400 people have said they saw the half-man, half-ape (半猿) Yeren in a remote, mountainous area of the central province of Hubei, state news agency Xinhua said on Saturday. Expeditions (探险) in the 1970s and 1980s found hair, a footprint, and a sleeping nest suspected of belonging to the Yeren, but there has been no conclusive proof, the report added. Witnesses describe a creature that walks upright and is more than 2 meters tall with grey, red or black hair all over its body, Xinhua said. Now the Hubei Wild Man Research Association is looking for volunteers from around the world to join them on another expedition to look for the Yeren. ―We want the team members to be devoted, as there will be a lot of hard work in the process,‖ Luo Baosheng, vice president of the group, told Xinhua. But the team will have to come up with about 10 million yuan ($1.50 million) first, and is
talking to companies and other bodies to secure the money, so there is no timetable yet for when they may start, the report added. China is no stranger to cryptozoology. There are many tales about mysterious, monster-like creatures in remote parts of the country. For example, Tibetans have long talked about the existence of the Yeti (喜马拉雅雪人), or ―Abominable Snowman‖, in the high mountains of their snowy homeland. 1. What the volunteers for this expedition need most is _____. A. experience B. enthusiasm C. confidence D. devotion 2. The timetable for starting the trip depends on _____. A. the number of explorers B. government’s support C. the finance D. local people’s guiding 3. According to the text, the underlined word ―cryptozoology‖ in the last paragraph probably refers to _____. A. the study of mysterious animals B. the study of human beings C. dangerous expeditions D. tourism industry 4. What would be the best title for this text? A. Volunteers for an expedition needed B.

Many people are for the new measure because they think that iPads are light to carry and convenient to use. The students today are familiar with electronic products, which can help to arouse their interest in learning. However, others argue that reading on the screen is harmful to students’ eyes in the long run. They may also lose their ability to write by pressing the keys instead of writing with pens. In my view, students should always write with pens. Meanwhile, electronic products can be used in class to make learning more interesting.

He wrote a book about them
called Principles of Geology. The earth, according to Lyell, was not only thousands of years old; it was millions of years old. As to the common belief that changes in the earth’s surface happen suddenly because of a single earthquake or flood, he said that this might happen once in a while, but usually these changes took place very slowly. He believed that the surface of the earth had been changing from the beginning of time. The changes, he said, were caused by the long-term action of the winds and seas, and by forces such as volcanoes breaking out under the earth’s surface. Once in a great while he thought, a mountain might appear for the first time after an earthquake. But usually mountains would experience a slow and steady rise. A professor named Henslow was interested in Lyell’s ideas, but he did not actually believe
them. Charles Darwin could not make up his mind about them. But they set him thinking along lines which would later change the beliefs of thoughtful people under the sun. At the University of Cambridge, Charles Darwin studied just enough to pass the examination, and received his college degree in 1831. During this time, he had become more and more interested in geology. At the end of the school year, he went to North Wales with one of his teachers to examine the rock formations and to search for fossils. Fossils are the remains of ancient living things. They are usually fixed in rocks in the earth’s crust. Fossils may be of animals, such as fish, insects, birds, or humans. They may be of plants from tiny leaves to huge trees. When a living creature dies, it usually decays or is eaten by animals. However, if it sinks into a riverbed or is quickly covered by the blowing sands of a desert storm, the bones are kept up in the earth. Over many years the soft inner parts of a bone disappear, leaving the inside hollow. Water containing minerals enters into the hollow. Slowly the minerals harden and make the bone hard and heavy like bones over the time. 1. According to Charles Lyell, mountains came into existence ___________. A. not because of volcanoes but because of seas B. quickly instead of steadily C. more on account of an earthquake than of winds D. at quite a slow rate rather than all of a sudden 2. Charles Lyell probably holds the belief that the earth has been formed like today’s shape _____________. A. from the very beginning of time B. over a rather long course of time C. just due to scores of big earthquakes D. owing to a very long period of big flood 3. What is Darwin’s main purpose of going to North Wales ? A. To collect dead animals and plants B. To do research into the rock information C. To make a research into fossils ever existing D. To search for varieties of tiny or huge plants 4. Charles Darwin, unlike Professor Henslow, ___________. A. turned Lyell’s ideas over before developing them later B. thought about what people thought about the then world C. did make up his mind not to accept Lyell’s ideas D. failed to think of Lyell’s ideas as right 5. What’s your opinion about Charles Darwin’s study at college? A. Excellent B. Undistinguished C. Diligent D.

cooking fuels. Most live in Africa, India and China. They use fuels like wood, crop waste, animal waste or coal. These fuels may be the least costly fuels. But they are also a major cause of health problems and death. For more than thirty years, the Aprovecho Research Center has been designing cleaner, low-cost cooking stoves. Dean Still is the director of the group and he points out that every year more than one million and five hundred thousand people die from breathing smoke from solid fuels. ―And half of the people use wood for cooking. These are the poorer people, and the richer people use oil and gas. It’s estimated that wood is running out more quickly than oil and gas. And so it’s very important for the poorer people to have very efficient stoves that protect their forests and their health,‖ he says. Every year Aprovecho holds a ―stove camp‖ at its testing station. Engineers, inventors and others come together to design and test different methods and materials for improving stoves. Over the years, the group has made stoves using mud, bricks, sheet metal, etc, most of which look like large, deep cooking pots and have an opening at the bottom for the fire and a place on top to put a pot. In the late nineteen seventies, Aprovecho produced a popular stove called the Lorena. The Lorena was very good at reducing smoke and warming homes. But new tests years later found that it was not very efficient. The Lorena used twice as much wood as an open fire, and took much longer to heat food. Since then, Dean Still says they have experimented with countless other designs. Aprovecho has partnered with a stove manufacturer (制造商) in China. The company is making Aprovecho’s stoves. They are said to use forty percent to fifty percent less wood than an open fire, and produce fifty percent to seventy-five percent less smoke. A company is selling them through its website for less than ten dollars. Dean Still says that more than one hundred thousand have been sold so far. 1.What’s your opinion about the purpose of the first paragraph? A. To lay the foundations of introducing cooking stoves. B.

Are these just stereotypes or is there really such a thing as national character? And if there is, can it affect how a nation succeed or fail? The answer is YES, at least one group of people is certain that it can. A recent survey of the top 500 entrepreneurs (企业家) in the UK found that 70% felt that their efforts were not appreciated by the British public. Britain is hostile (敌意的) to success, they said. It has a culture of jealousy(嫉妒). 1 Jealousy is sometimes known as the ―green-eyed monster‖ and the UK is its home. Recently scientists at Warwich University in the UK tested this idea. They gathered a group of people together and gave each an imaginary amount of money. 2 Those given a little were given the chance to destroy the large amount of money given to others – but at the cost of losing their own. Two thirds of the people tested agreed to do this. 3 But there is also opposite evidence. The Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development recently reported that the UK is now the world’s fourth largest economy. That is not bad for people who are supposed to hate success. People in the UK also work longer hours than anyone else in Europe. So the British people are not lazy, either. ―It is not really success that the British dislike,‖ says Carey Cooper, a professor of management at the University of Manchester Institute of Science and Technology. ―It’s people using their success in a way that seems proud or unfair or which separates them from their roots.‖ 4 They set out to do things in their way. They work long hours. By their own efforts they become millionaires. 5 It hardly seems worth following their example. If they were more friendly, people would like them more. And more people want to be like them. A. The one who owns most money in the end is the winner. B. This seems to prove that the entrepreneurs were right to complain. C. It is not true that British people are born jealous of others’ success. D. As a result, the survey said, entrepreneurs were ―unloved, unwanted and misunderstood.‖ E. But instead of being happy they complain that nobody loves them. F. Perhaps it is the entrepreneurs who are the problem. G. Some were given a little, others a great deal.

【解析】 【试源】2016 届山西省太原五中高二上学期期中考试 【结束】 11. 【题文】 THERE is an old saying: ―Don’t judge a book by its cover.‖ It means that you shouldn’t build your first impression of someone on his or her looks alone. But according to a new study, the famous saying might not be correct after all. A group of US scientists have found that the first impression we have of someone else is actually right most of the time. In the study, scientists asked participants to look at a photograph of a person and make a quick judgment about him or her. A month later, the participant and the person in the photo were introduced, and scientists were shocked to find that their judgments often match those that they had made originally.
It’s true that simply looking at someone won’t provide you with as much information. But, according to scientists, when making a first impression, people rely more on their instincts (直觉) than on logic (逻辑). ―They focus on how that person makes them feel,‖ Paul Eastwick of the University of Texas told Live Science. ―It is very hard to get a sense of this information when simply viewing a profile(简介). As soon as one sees another person, an impression is formed and what we see can sometimes dominate what we know.‖ Of course, no one can be right about everything and your instincts can go wrong sometimes. But even if it is proven to be wrong, once people form an opinion about someone, they have a hard time getting over that opinion later on. The findings help explain why people always tidy themselves up before meeting guests or doing job interviews. ―Their face constantly reminds us of that first impression,‖ said Rule. People may learn more about another person over time once they get close to each other, but first impressions remain very important and seem difficult to forget. 1. What did the US scientists of the University of Texas find out in their recent study? A. It’s unwise to judge a book by its cover. B. It’s better to judge by logic than by instincts. C. First impressions tend to last more often than not. D. Profiles provide more information than you have imagined. 2 . The underlined word ―dominate‖ is closest in meaning to . A. determine B. change C. cover D. acquire 3. We can conclude from the article that ______. A. first impressions never go wrong B. it’s difficult to change a wrong first impression C. it takes a long time to form a first impression D. first impressions are easy to change after people know each other better 【答案】CAB 【解析】 【试源】2016 届山西省太原五中高二 12 月月考 【结束】 12.【题文】At the thought of a documentary (纪录片), you may think of it as a long, boring program. 1 With fascinating stories, CCTV’s Documentary Channel has produced many highly-praised programs such as A Bite of China, Silk Road: The Journey Goes on. So what makes a good documentary? What should we pay attention to when watching one? Here, we offer a few easy strategies to help you to get the most of watching documentaries. ●Pay attention to the themes While watching a documentary, be concentrated on the themes people talk about and what ideas they focus on. The themes of a documentary can go a long way in telling you its purpose. 2 . Is it meant to be informative or create a certain emotional response? ● Think critically Listen to what the people in the documentary are saying and ask yourself the following questions. If you were debating a point with someone or trying to accurately introduce a new concept, would you say the things the people in the documentary are saying? Do the arguments make sense? 3 . Documentaries always encourage us to think about issues we wouldn’t necessarily know about. ● 4 If you’re sitting at the computer and can’t think of anything to do, why not look up the points the documentary made and see if they are accurate? You could even read about the people that were interviewed in the documentary to see if they had hidden motivations for appearing in it. ●Who are the creators? 5 . For instance, the documentary Blackfish, which was partially backed by CNN, is
sympathetic to the situation of the killer whales. A. Check the sources B. Collect resources available for research C. Critical thinking is an important factor in the arts field D. And then determine the facts or subject without prejudice E. The creators will usually be involved with how the subject is presented F. However, it provides basic clues as to the accuracy of the information you’re getting G. But it can be wonderful and bring stories from the real world into our homes

But when the yearly games for the disabled were started at Stoke Mandeville, England in 1948 by Sir Ludwig Guttmann, the situation began to change. Sir Ludwig Guttmann, who had been driven to England in 1939 from Nazi Germany, had been asked by the British government to set up an injuries centre at Stoke Mandeville Hospital near
London. His ideas about treating injuries included sport for the disabled. In the first games just two teams of injured soldiers took part. The next year 1949, five teams took part. From those beginnings, things have developed fast. Teams now come from abroad to Stoke Mandeville every year. In 1960 the first Olympics for the disabled were held in Rome, in the same place as the normal Olympic Games. Now, every four years the Olympic Games for the disabled are held, if possible, in the same place as the normal Olympic Games, although they are organized separately. In other years Games for the disabled are still held at Stoke Mandeville. In the 1984 wheelchair Olympic Games, 1064 wheelchair athletes from about 40 countries took part. Unfortunately, they were held at Stoke Mandeville and not in Los Angeles, along with the other Olympics. The Games have been a great success in helping the progress of international friendship and understanding, and in proving that being disabled does not mean you can’t enjoy sport. One small source of disappointment for those who organize and take part in the games, however, has been the unwillingness of the International Olympic Committee to include disabled events at the Olympic Games for the able bodied. Perhaps a few more years is still needed to persuade those fortunate enough not to be disabled that their disabled fellow athletes should be included. 1. The first games for the disabled were held after Sir Ludwig Guttmann arrived in England. A.40 years B.21 years C.10 years D.9 years 2. This text tells us that Sir Ludwig Guttmann .

Some people, old and weak, cannot get around by themselves. Others seem perfectly healthy, dressed in business suits. But whenever I saw someone in a wheelchair, I only saw a disability, not a person. Then I fainted(昏倒)at Euro Disney due to low blood pressure. This was the first time I had ever fainted, and my parents insisted that I rest for a while after first aid. They said to me, ―Never mind!‖ I agreed to take it easy, but as I stepped toward the door, I saw my dad pushing a
wheelchair in my direction! Feeling the color burn my cheeks, I asked him to wheel that thing right back to where he found it. I could not believe this was happening to me. Wheelchairs were fine for other people but not for me, as my father wheeled me out into the main street, people immediately began to treat me differently. Little kids ran in front of me, forcing my father to stop the wheelchair suddenly. Bitterness set in as I was thrown back and forth. ‖Stupid kids! They have perfectly good legs. Why can’t they watch where they are going?‖ I thought. People stared down at me, pity in their eyes. Then they would look away, maybe because they thought the sooner they forgot me the better. ‖I’m just like you!‖ I wanted to scream.‖ The only difference is you’ve got legs, and I have wheels.‖ People in wheelchairs are not stupid. They see every look and hear each word. Looking out at the faces, I finally understood: I was once just like them. I treated people in wheelchairs exactly the way they did not want to be treated.

Leading health experts agree that maintaining a vegetarian diet is one of the best things we can do for ourselves and our families. 1 . A well planned vegetarian diet provides us with all the nutrients we need and avoids fat, cholesterol(胆固醇) and the pollutants found in animal flesh, eggs, and dairy products. And it can provide protection against various kinds of diseases, including the three biggest killers: heart disease, cancer, and strokes. The American Dietetic Association states that vegetarians have lower
rates of death from heart disease, lower blood cholesterol levels, lower blood pressure and lower rates of hypertension(高血压) . 2 . Scientists have also found that vegetarians have stronger immune systems than their meat eating friends. 3 Vegetarians live, on average, 6 to 10 years longer than meat eaters. 4 . Animals raised for food consume the vast majority of their calories simply in order to live, just as we do. We feed more than 70 percent of the grains and cereals we grow to farm animals, and almost all of those calories go into simply keeping them alive, not making them grow. Only a small amount of the calories consumed by farm animals are actually turned into the meat that people eat .So it’s really a huge waste, isn’t it? Try your best to find tips for maximizing(最大化) the health benefits of a vegetarian diet. 5 A. All of these diseases are more likely to happen to meat eaters B. Living on plants also saves energy C. Growing all the crops needed to feed animals requires massive amounts of water and land D. This means that they are less likely to be affected by everyday illnesses like the flu. E. Vegetarian diets are the only diets that work for long term weight loss F. It’s never too late to turn over a new page. G. Healthy vegetarian diets support a lifetime of good health. 【答案】GADBF 【解析】 【试源】2016 届山西省大同市第一中学高二 3 月月考 【结束】 19.【题文】艾萨克· 阿西莫夫（Isaac Asimov）是美国科学家兼作家，1920 年 1 月 2 日出生 于俄罗斯， 1992 年 4 月 6 日于纽约去世。1948 年他获得了化学博士学位。第二年在波士顿 大学的医学院任生化教师。1958 年他放弃了教学工作成为专职作家。一生中，他写过大约 480 本书，包括怪诞小说、科学和历史方面的书，甚至还写过有关《圣经》和莎士比亚的书。 但使他最负盛名的作品是他的科幻小说, 如《基地》三部曲， 《我，机器人》等。

1.【题文】There is a serious problem to our earth. That's global warming. No doubt the tons of carbon dioxide being thrown up into the air are dangerously warming the earth. It is clear that average temperature has risen during the last century. Not everyone can believe that carbon dioxide is responsible. A new study shows us it is not all the fault of carbon dioxide. Some scientists studied the sun and found that when the sun becomes more active，the earth warms up. When the sun quiets, as it did in the 1950s and 1960s，temperature takes a dip (下 降)．So some scientists said the sun's changeable moods may be more important than carbon dioxide in warming the earth. You might think that ―global warming‖ means nothing more than a rise in the world's temperature. But rising sea levels caused by it have affected our environment and living standard in many ways. We can't change the sun's moods .So in order not to make the earth warming up, what we can do is to control the amount of giving off carbon dioxide. Studies have shown that humanrelated emissions (排放物) of carbon into the atmosphere is causing， and will in the future cause seriously global warming.
