第一部分：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 In eighth grade, I decided t
o try out for my school musical. I only made it through the first verse(节) before the drama teacher stopped me. It goes without saying that my Christmas song didn’t get me any role. Am I embarrassed? NO. Not just because it was ten years ago, but also because it ’s such a great story to share. Why? I think the main reason is that admitting mistakes makes you easier to relate to. Interestingly enough, science confirms this theory. Researchers have conducted many studies and have concluded that when someone makes a mistake or acts in a clumsy way, they are found to be more likeable. In other words, if you’re able to do well and then you mess up, it shows your human side. This allows others to connect and relate to you, which in turn makes them like you more. Growing up, I was type of student who had to get straight A’s and the type of athlete who always had to perform at the top of the game. The problem was that my standards were so ridiculously high that I was never happy. It was only when I learned to let go and forgive myself for my mistakes that I truly felt relaxed. When one of your close friends or family members makes a mistake, are you quick to forgive and forget? Sadly, many of us often express more sympathy for others than ourselves. With each mistake coming a lesson, you will be better equipped to handle life’s challenges going forward. More importantly, if you are always worried about looking silly, you will never be able to get improved. Even if you make a fool of yourself, it isn’t the end of the world. Think about it: What ’s the worst that can happen? In many cases, the reward often outweighs the risk. 1. By writing the passage, the author wants to tell us ____.
A. it is time to forgive others C. it’s okay to make mistakes
B. everyone may make mistakes D. what can be done to forgive our mistakes
2. What does the underlined part “this theory” probably refer to? A. A mistake makes you more likeable. B. An embarrassed person tends to act clumsily. C. people mess up in life at times. D. It’s good to share a great story with others 3. According to the passage, we know the author____. A. is pleased with her hard work B. was once a person who wants things to be perfect C. was happy with her high standard D. never forgives herself for the mistakes she made 4. What message is delivered in the last two paragraphs? A. Making a fool of yourself. B. Viewing mistakes as learning opportunities. C. Admitting mistakes is risky. D. People tend to feel sorry for themselves. B The Spring Festival is supposed to be a period of time entirely for family reunion. However, as people’s enthusiasm for digital hongbao increased, the amount of the time they spend with family members during the holiday decreases. There has been widespread criticism(批评) over digital hongbao that it has alienated family reunion. “ I used to discuss programs in the Spring Festival Gala(春晚) with my family members , but this year , I hardly had the time to watch the gala because I was staring at my cellphone all the time,” said Kang , a 30 –year old radio station editor. “ I went to Karaoke with my cousins during the holiday, and I was grasping digital hongbao the whole time, even when I was singing Karaoke.” “On the last day of the holiday, I started to regret spending too much time on these digital hongbao. Therefore, instead of fighting for hongbao, I watched TV with my mom that night. I left home feeling sorry! I should have spent more time with my parents.”
“But Kang said regret came with a sense of achievement when he managed to bring classmates together. “Next year, I will still play the game, but with less money and for a smaller amount of time,” Kang said. Dong Chenyu, a teacher from Beijing Foreign Studies University, said it unfair to blame hongbao for destroying family reunion. “When television was invented, people accused it of standing in the way of face-to-face human communication. The same accusation came up on telephone and text message services when they were first invented. The same goes with digital hongbao,” Dong said. “It does nothing but offers a new way of human communication. The rest is people’s choice. As long as no one expects to earn money from this and takes this as a means of gambling(赌博), it’s a good way to improve human connections,” Dong said. 5. The underlined word “alienated” in Paragraph 1 most probably means ____. A. separated B. reserved C. encouraged D. improved
6. How did Mr.Kang feel about digital hongbao according to Paragraph 2? A. He felt regretted in spending too much money. B. He had a strong preference for it. C. He was happy to spend too much of his time. D. He felt a sense of guilty in getting it. 7. What can we infer from what Mr. Dong said about digital hongbao____. A. It will bring us trouble in holiday reunion. B. It will be out of fashion soon in future. C. Mr. Dong is in favor of the digital hongbao. D. Lots of people will use it to earn money. 8. What’s mainly described in the passage? A. The Spring Festival is the best time for family reunion. B. Digital Hongbao is a double-edged sword. C. People’s holiday enthusiasm has decreased. D. Digital hongbao has become a popular way to make money.
C The way we cook is important. In many countries, the two sources of heat used for cooking are natural gas and electric stoves. The World Health Organization(WHO) warns that millions of people are dying every year from indoor air pollution. The WHO finds that poor cooking, heating and lighting technologies are killing millions of people each year. Indoor air pollution results from the use of dangerous fuels and cook stoves in the home. WHO officials say nearly three billion people are unable to use clean fuels and technologies for cooking, heating and lighting. And they say more than seven million people die from exposure to indoor or outdoor air pollution each year. Of that number, the WHO says about 4.3 million people die from household air pollution given off by simple biomass(生物燃料）and coal stoves. These findings show that the home use of poisonous fuels is to blame for many of these deaths. These fuels include wood, coal, animal waste and so on. Carlos Dora is Coordinator in the WHO’ s Department of Public Health, Environmental and Social Determinants of Health. He says people should not use unprocessed coal and kerosene(煤油）fuel indoors. He says opening a window or door to let out the harmful air will not correct the situation. It will only pollute the outdoors. “New technologies and clean fuels can rid people of this problem.” The United Nations found that more than 95 percent of families in sub-Saharan Africa depend on solid fuels for cooking. It says huge populations in India, China and Latin American countries, such as Guatemala and Peru, are also at risk. Nigel Bruce is a professor of Public Health at the University of Liverpool. He says researchers are developing good stoves and other equipment to burn fuels in a more efficient way. “There are already many technologies for clean fuels available now. An effective and reasonably low-cost ethanol(酒精）stove that is made by Dometic is now being tested out. Another interesting development is electric induction stoves.” In India, you can buy an induction stove for about $8. And in Africa you can buy a solar lamp for less than $1. 9. How is Paragraph 2 mainly developed? A. By making classifications. C. By following time order. B. By listing numbers. D. By describing a process.
10. According to Carlos Dora, what is the best solution to indoor air pollution? A. People should use an effective air cleaner.
B. People should open a window or door to let out the harmful air. C. People should use new technologies and clean fuels. D. People should prevent themselves from being exposed to harmful air.. 11. What can we learn from the passage? A. Most of the deaths from indoor pollution are in developing countries. B. Burning solid fuels can help limit indoor air pollution . C. People now can buy ethanol stoves made by Dometic in India. D. There are already two technologies for clean fuels available for use. 12. Which would be the best title for the passage? A. The way we cook is changing. C. The development of electric stoves. B. Types of indoor air pollution. D. Indoor air pollution kills millions each year.
D Thinking is something you choose to do as a fish chooses to live in water. To be human is to think. But thinking may come naturally without your knowing how you do it. Thinking about thinking is the key to critical thinking. When you think critically, you take control of your thinking processes. Otherwise, you might be controlled by the ideas of others. Indeed, critical thinking is the heart of education. The word “critical” here has a special meaning. It does not mean taking one against another view, as when someone criticizes another person for doing something wrong. The nature of critical thinking is thinking beyond the easily seen-beyond the pictures on TV, the untrue reports in the newspapers, and the faulty reasoning. Critical thinking is an attitude as much as an activity. If you are curious about life and desire to dig deeper into it, you are a critical thinker. If you find pleasure in deep thinking about different ideas, characters, and facts, you are a critical thinker. Activities of the mind and higher-order reasoning are processes of deep and careful consideration. They take time, and do not go hand in hand with the fast speed in today’s world: fast foods, instant coffee, and self-developed film. If you are among the people who believe that speed is a measure of intelligence, you may learn something new from a story about Albert Einstein. The first time Banesh Hoffman, a scientist, was to discuss his work with Albert Einstein,
Hoffman was too nervous to speak. But Einstein immediately put Hoffman at ease by saying, “ Please go slowly. I don’t understand things quickly.” 13. Critical thinking is important to us because if we do not think critically, _______. A. it will be hard for us to think naturally and fast B. we might be controlled by other people’s ideas C. we will follow the ideas of others naturally D. we might be fooled by other people’s ideas 14. If you are a critical thinker, you will ______. A. think deeply about different ideas C. take one view against another view 15. What would be the best title for the passage? A. What is thinking C.

书面表达： One possible version:
Over the past years, there have been frequent extreme weather and natural disasters, such as floods, droughts, snowstorms, earthquakes and so on. These have killed millions of people and destroyed countless homes.
Improper human activities contribute a lot to those disasters. We have cut down too many trees, badly polluted the environment, and wasted plenty of resources. What we do is threatening human survival and development. So it is high time that we protected our environment. We should plant more trees, reduce the use of vehicles, and save resources like water and electricity. Everyone can make a difference to the environment. Only if we stop damaging the earth and do our best to protect it can we make world a pleasant place to live in.
