Ⅱ 阅读 (共两节，满分 50 分) 第一节 阅读理解（共 20 小题；每小题 2 分，满分 40 分） 阅读下列短文，从每题所给的 A、B、C 和 D 项中，选出最佳选项，并在答 题卡上将该项涂黑。 A Is it possible that the sinking of the Titanic was caused by a ghost? A lot of the story below is true...but did it really happen quite like this? Our story begins not in the icy cold waters of the North Atlantic, but rather thousands of miles away in Egypt. It is here, perhaps, that we can find the start of the mystery of the Titanic, in the year 1910, in the great city of Cairo. One day, a famous professor of Egyptian history called Douglas Murray was staying in Cairo, when he was contacted by an American adventurer. The American had something unusual to offer Murray, something that was certain to thrill him: a beautiful ancient Egyptian mummy case, containing the mummy of an Egyptian queen. It was over 3000 years old, but in beautiful condition-gold, with bright paintings on it. Murray was delighted with both the object and the asking-price. He gave the man a cheque immediately. The cheque was never cashed. That evening the American adventurer died. For his part, Murray arranged to have the treasure sent back to Britain. However, it was not long before he learnt more about the beautiful mummy case: On the walls of the tomb in which it had been discovered, there were messages which warned of terrible consequences to anyone who broke into the tomb. Murray was disbelieving of these warnings until a few days later, when a gun he was holding exploded in his hand, shattering his arm. The arm had to be cut off. After the accident, Murray decided to return to his homeland. On the return journey, two of his companions died mysteriously, and two servants who had handled the mummy also passed away. The now-terrified Murray decided he would get rid of the cursed case as soon as he arrived in London. A lady he knew named Janet Jones said she would like it, so he gave it to her. Shortly afterwards, Jones’ mother died, and she herself caught a strange disease. She tried returning the mummy, but naturally Murray refused it. In the end, it was presented to the British Museum. Even in the museum, the mummy apparently continued to cause strange events. A museum photographer died shortly after taking pictures of the new exhibit; and a manager also died for no apparent reason. In the end, the British Museum decided to get rid of the mummy too. They sold it to a collector in New York. At the start of April 1912, arrangements for the transfer were complete, and the mummy began the journey to its new home. But the New Yorker never received the mummy or its case. For when the Titanic sank, one of the objects in its strong-room was the mummy case. Or so they say. 26. From the passage, we know Professor Murray __________. A. was a famous American adventure B. used to work for the British Museum C. was a British professor of Egyptian history D. didn’t believe the mummy really brought bad fortune 27. In Paragraph 5, the underlined word “cursed” is closest in meaning to __________. 英语试题 B 第 3 页（共 10 页）

It bothered James at first, but she seemed almost proud of it; she would refuse to use her five-fingered hand to hold his or move stray hairs from her eyes. She would always use her left hand, twisted and shocking. But that was only at the beginning of their relationship. After six months the missing digit became something like a comfort to James-he’d notice its absence in his hand and feel loved. It was something he couldn’t explain to anyone else, and that made him love the missing finger even more. It was something he couldn’t explain to anyone else, and that made him love the missing finger even more. It was a secret between them both. There was, however, a certain thing James couldn’t ask about. He wasn’t sure how she lost her finger. It was the only unspeakable topic in the relationship. It didn ’t bother him very much. He wasn’t a curious person. He’d occasionally slip and begin to ask, but mostly caught himself. When he didn’t, she’d get quiet in company or angry in private. He’d let her storm away and wait for the broken comb of her hand to run through his hair in apology. They broke up over a mistake. His mistake. Amy started an argument over who should do the dishes, and he lost despite his best effort to point out the number of hours he worked. In his anger, he stabbed a fork into the wall. Amy didn’t say anything; she didn’t even look upset, just confused. When he pulled the fork out, two prongs（叉齿） stayed in the wall, so he threw it into the trash. She was still staring, and he felt awkward and ashamed. He told her the prongs were in the wall, and the fork was now useless. What good would a two-pronged fork be for anyone? There wasn’t any talking after that. She simply packed a backpack and went to her mother ’s. The next day Amy’s brother and father came by to collect the rest of her clothing and books. Neither of them looked mad, though James couldn’t figure out if they were truly uninterested or if silent anger was a family characteristic. 英语试题 B 第 4 页（共 10 页）
31. Which of Amy’s fingers was missing? A. The middle finger of her left hand. B. The little finger of their left hand. C. The little finger of her right hand. D. The middle finger of her right hand. 32. The underlined word “It” in Paragraph 3 refers to __________. A. Amy’s missing finger B. how Amy lost her finger C. Amy’s attitude towards her hand D. why Amy never talked about her hand 33. What caused Amy to leave James? A. Amy was afraid of James’ extreme anger. B. James repeatedly refused to wash the dishes. C. Amy felt James disrespected her disability. D. James continually talked about her missing finger. 34. When Amy’s father came to collect her things, he __________.

To Amy, the broken fork symbolized __________. A. their broken relationship B. her damaged hand C. a problem that could be solved D. the way she lost her finger C Speed reading is a necessary and vital skill in the Internet age. We skim over articles, e-mails and tweets to try to grasp key words and the essential meaning of the text. With so much information available through our electronic devices, it would be impossible to get through everything if we read word by word, line by line. But a new trend calls on people to unplug and enjoy reading slowly, one which claims to have benefits beyond intellectual stimulation. A recent story from The Wall Street Journal reported on a book club in Wellington, New Zealand, where members meet in a cafe and turn off their smartphones. They sink into comfortable chairs and read in silence for an hour. Unlike typical book clubs, the point of the slow reading club isn’t to exchange ideas about certain books, but to get away from electronic devices and read in a quiet, relaxed environment. According to the story, the Wellington book club is just one example of a movement started by book lovers who miss the traditional way of reading. Traditional readers, like Maura Kelly, say a regular reading habit sharpens the mind, improves concentration, reduces stress levels and deepens the ability to understand others. Some of these benefits have been backed up by science. For example, a study of 300 elderly people published by the journal Neurology last year showed that mature people who take part in activities that use their brain, such as reading, suffer less memory loss as they get older. Another study published last year in Science showed that reading novels helps people understand others’ mental states and beliefs-a key skill in building relationships. Yet technology has made us less careful readers. Computer and phone screens have changed our reading patterns from the top-to-bottom, left-to-right reading order 英语试题 B 第 5 页（共 10 页）
we traditionally used, to a wild skimming and skipping pattern as we hunt for important words and information. Reading text online that has many links to other web pages also leads to weaker comprehension than reading plain text. The Internet may have made us stupider, says British journalist Patrick Kingsley, only half joking. Because of the Internet, he claims we have become very good at collecting a wide range of factual tidbits, but we are also gradually forgetting how to sit back, think and relate all these facts to each other. 36. Speed reading is a necessary and vital skill in the Internet age because people __________. A. have to grasp the meaning faster B. have much more information to read C. no longer read word by word, line by line D. Must use their smartphones more frequently 37. Members of the Wellington book club are expected to __________. A. read peacefully for an hour B. make coffee for the other members C. regularly swap ideas about books D. turn off their smartphones for recharging 38. According to the Neurology study, who is most likely to suffer memory loss? A. A 65-year-old man who rarely reads. B. A 79-year-old woman who reads regularly. C. A 17-year-old middle school student who seldom reads. D. A healthy 24-year-old university graduate who often plays games. 39. Kingsley believes that the Internet __________. A. has lowered people’s overall intelligence levels B. has reduced people’s ability to analyze information C. has provided people with too much useless knowledge D. has stopped people from doing important and useful work 40. The last paragraph is written to __________. A. explain the secrets of others’ minds B. urge people to read as slowly as possible C. encourage people to read more about science D. describe the problems caused by electronic reading D Stockholm’s street magazine sellers no longer only take cash-they now take cards too. In the most cashless society on the planet, Swedish street magazine sellers have been equipped with portable card readers to accept credit card payments. “More and more sellers were telling us that people wanted our magazine but weren’t carrying cash,” says Pia Stolt, the magazine’s publisher. “So with the help of a local computer company, we came up with a way to accept payment electronically. “We didn’t know how it would turn out, or whether people would be unwilling to give the credit card information to a stranger on the street,” says Stolt, “but the results have been great-sales are up 59%.” “Swedes are pretty trusting and we’re used to taking up new technology so this was the perfect solution,” adds Stolt. “The cashless society campaign we’re seeing in Sweden is definitely a good move as far as we are concerned-it’s unstoppable.” 英语试题 B 第 6 页（共 10 页）
Banks and stores invested heavily in card payment systems in the 1990s and now local consumers are using them in huge numbers. Today, four out of five purchases are made electronically in Sweden and going totally cash-free is the next step. Sweden’s public transport system has already been cashless for several years, after local public transport workers complained that handling cash had become dangerous. “Bus drivers were getting attacked for their money so Sweden banned cash on public transport,” says Arn Arvidsson, the president of Cashless, an organization supporting the move to a cash-free society. “There were also a number of bank robberies, so four years ago, the banks began to move away from cash. Now, all of Sweden’s big banks operate cash free wherever possible, and the number of bank robberies is at a 30-year low.” There is, however, concern about how well Sweden’s 1.8 million pensioners-out of a total population of 10 million-will adapt. “A lot of elderly people feel excluded,” says Johanna Hallen of the Swedish National Pensioners’ Organization. “Only 50% of older people use cash cards regularly and 7% never use cash cards. So we want the government to take things slowly.” The digital payment revolution is also a challenge for tourists, who need pre-paid tickets or a Swedish mobile to catch a bus in the capital. “There’s a worry about crime and theft as well,” says Arvidsson. “Figures show that computer-related credit card crime has almost doubled in the last decade.” 41. Why has the change to cashless selling been so successful in Sweden according to Stolt? A. Paying by cards costs less and is much quicker. B. Selling electronically is more convenient and safer. C. Swedish people are trusting and they welcome new technology. D. Swedish people are more willing to buy from street sellers. 42. The demand for a cashless public transport system first came from __________. A. transport companies to reduce their costs B. banks so they could increase their profits C. transport workers to protect their safety D. the government to improve transport times 43. Which of the following about Sweden is true according to the passage? A. No new banknotes will be produced in the future B. It is the first country to have cash-free buses. C. Local people don’t feel comfortable carrying cash. D. There has been a huge reduction in bank robberies. 44. Why does Johanna Hallen think the cashless society should be introduced slowly? A. She worries that computer-related crime will increase. B. She is concerned about the inconvenience to foreign travellers. C. She believes that it’s not easy for older people to get used to it. D. She feels it is everyone’s right to be able to use cash if they wish. 45. What information is most likely to follow the last paragraph? A. The difficulties people face in a cashless society. B. Some benefits a cashless society will bring to banks C. The reasons for the change in customers’ attitudes to cards. D. Some possible solutions to the problems of a cashless society. 英语试题 B 第 7 页（共 10 页）

第二节 读写任务（共 1 小题，满分 25 分） 阅读下面的短文，然后按照要求写一篇 150 词左右的英语短文。 Family values are principles that help to define us as human beings. These values are learned, usually passed down from generation to generation, but can also change over time, depending upon the circumstances in which families find themselves. They shape the way we behave; they help families stick together; and they give us our identity. We always admire a person who treats the elderly with respect, or helps people in need, or is always honest with others. Such admirable behavior is usually a direct result of the values that person was taught by his family. These values or principles-respect, fairness and honesty among many others-also help hold the family together in times of trouble. When problems arise, the family is able to withstand them because they share the same idea about what is important. When family members feel pressure from the outside world, they know they can come into their family for a comforting connection. Finally, family values make us who we are. When we talk about our personal character and what influences our decisions, we do so based on the values given to us by our family.

Possible presents could include a photo album in which you can add photos, recording your participation in different school activities and other unforgettable schooling memories. Cooperatively or individually mad art works, such as paintings, poems and songs are another good gift option. We’re also preparing an online message board where you can leave your name and a message of appreciation for the school. We are looking forward to your active participation and creative ideas as we celebrate our love for our school. 读写任务： Possible version: The passage tells us what family values are and the important role they played in holding the family together and shaping our own personality. Family values are what we live by, always directing what we do and what decisions we make. A child is born into a family and becomes a part of the society later. There have to be certain principles in place to determine one’s behavior and ensure a harmonious society. My family values were primarily shaped by my mother. As a child, she always reminded me to be punctual and to work harder. But her greatest gift was teaching me the importance of honesty. She taught me that mistakes in life were unavoidable, but I should never sacrifice my honesty to cover for my mistakes. Honesty has been with me ever since. In my friendships, I’m always willing to admit to errors and never pretend to be all-knowing. That’s why many friends come to me for help. They know I’ll be straight-forward and tell them the truth, not only the things they want to hear. As my mother said, “When we’re honest, we earn others’ trust and society’s credit”.
