第一节 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。 A Two travelling angels stopped to spend the night in the home of a wealthy family. The family were rude and refused to let the angels stay in the guest room. Instead the angels were given a space in the cold basement. As they made their bed on the hard floor, the older angel saw a hole in the wall and repaired it. When the younger angel asked why, the older angel replied: “Things aren’t always what they seem.” The next night the pair came to rest at the house of a very poor, but very hospitable(好 客的)farmer and his wife. After sharing what little food they had，the couple let the angels sleep in their bed where they could have a good night’s rest. When the sun came up the next morning， the angels found the farmer and his wife in tears. Their only cow, whose milk had been their only income, lay dead in the field. The younger angel was very angry and asked the older angel, “How could this happen?” “Why did you not watch out for the cow? The first man had everything, yet you watched over his house,” she accused. “The second family had little but was willing to share everything, and you did not help.” “Things aren’t always what they seem,” the older angel replied. “When we stayed in the basement，I noticed there was gold stored in that hole in the wall. Since the owner was so greedy and unwilling to share his good fortune，I asked God if I could seal(封口) the wall so he wouldn’t find it. Then last night as we slept in the farmer’s bed，the angel of death(死神) came for his wife. I asked God if the angel could take the cow instead. Things aren’t always what they seem.” 56.The underlined part “the pair” in the second paragraph two refers to .

Because she wanted to save the farmer’s wife. B. Because she wanted to teach the younger angel a lesson. C. Because she was sympathetic to the rich. D.

This isn't because people feel thankful for the cold weather, nor because the important festivals---Christmas or Spring Festival---offer an excuse to celebrate. In fact, “Bless you!” is a common response if someone sneezes, a symptom(症状）of catching a cold or the flu. Colds and the flu are the most common illnesses of autumn and winter as the weather gets colder.
Viruses cause them. If you get one you will feel annoyed, but it is not usually serious. The flu is spread from person to person when we come into contact with a person with the virus. We get the virus on our hands and then we touch our noses and our mouths. We can pass on the flu before we realize we have it. You can infect(传染) others one day before symptoms develop and for up to five days after becoming sick. Getting a flu vaccination is the best way to prevent the illness. Even if your body has built up antibodies（抗体）for one kind of flu. The vaccine（疫苗）is only effective for one year and viruses are different from year to year, so it is necessary to get a flu vaccination every year. The best time to get the vaccination is October or November. Besides, there are other ways to reduce your chance of getting a flu. Wash your hands. Get enough rest. Eat garlic regularly. Don't let stress control you. Exercise regularly. 64. We say “Bless you!” when __________. A. we feel annoyed at someone. B. someone sneezes. C. someone catches a cold or the flu. D. we celebrate some important festivals. 65. How many ways are mentioned in the passage to stop you from catching the flu? A. 6 B.5 C.7 D.3 66. The passage is intended to tell us ___________. A. how to keep healthy . B. the causes of flu . C. the influence of flu . D. what to do about flu. 67. We can infer the passage that____________. A. People catch a cold or the flu only in autumn or winter. B. people getting a flu vaccination won’t catch the illness for life. C. flu can cause symptoms such as sore throat and a runny nose. D. people with the virus of flu but having no symptoms can still infect others. D Never go into a supermarket hungry! This is a good piece of advice. If you go shopping for food before lunchtime, you’ll probably buy more than you plan to. Unfortunately, however, just this advice isn’t enough for consumers these days. Modern shoppers need an education in how and how not to buy things at the store. First, you check the weekly newspaper ads. Find out the items that are on sale and decide if you really need these things. In other words, don’t buy anything just because it’s cheaper than usual! “New and Improved!” or “All Natural” on the front of a package influence you. Instead, read the list of contents on the back. Third, compare prices, that is, you should examine the prices of both different brands and different sizes of the same brand. Another suggestion for consumers is to buy ordinary items instead of famous brands. Ordinary items in supermarkets come in plain packages. These products are cheaper because producers don’t spend much money on packing or advertising. The quality, however, is usually as good as the quality of well-known name brands. In the same way, in buying clothes, you can often find high quality and low prices in brands that are not famous. Shopping in discount clothing stores can help you save a lot of money. Although these stores aren’t very attractive, and they usually do not have individual dressing rooms, not only are the prices low, but you can often find the same famous brands that you find in high-priced department stores. Wise consumers read magazine ads and watch TV commercials, but they do this with one advantage: knowledge of the psychology behind the ads. In other words, well informed consumers watch for information and check for misinformation. They ask themselves questions: Is the advertiser hiding
something in small print at the bottom of the page? Is there any real information in the commercial(商业广告), or is the advertiser simply showing an attractive image? With the answers to these questions, consumers can make a wise choice. 68. All the following statements are true about the phrase “ordinary items” in Paragraph 2 except ______. A. ordinary products are usually cheaper than famous brands. B. producers spend less money on packaging of ordinary items . C. the quality of ordinary items is usually as good as that of famous brands. D. ordinary items never say “New and Improved” or “All Natural”. 69. What does the writer think about ads? A. They are believable. B. They are attractive. C. They are helpful. D. They are harmful. 70. One of the author’s suggestions to consumers is ______. A. to buy any ordinary items instead of famous brands . B. to make use of advertisements carefully for shopping. C. to buy high quality items such as famous brands after lunch . D. not to buy items with words like “New and Improved” or “All Natural”. 71. The author implies that ______. A. advertisements sometimes don’t tell the truth to the consumers. B. discount clothing stores are only good places to go to for shopping. C. going into the supermarket hungry, you may buy less than you plan to. D. the quality of ordinary items is usually high and the prices are relatively low. E The Japanese government has launched a campaign encouraging people to go to bed and get up extra early in order to reduce household carbon dioxide emissions (排放). The Morning Challenge campaign, launched by the Environment Ministry, is based on the belief that changing late night electricity for an extra hour of morning sunlight could greatly cut the nation’s carbon footprint. A typical family can reduce its carbon dioxide footprint by 85kg a year if everyone goes to bed and gets up one hour earlier, according to the campaign. The amount of carbon dioxide emissions that might be saved from going to bed an hour earlier equals 20% of annual emissions from household lights.“Many Japanese people waste electrical power at night-time, for example, by watching TV until very late,” a ministry spokesperson told The Daily Telegraph. “But going to bed early and getting up early can avoid wasting electrical power which causes carbon dioxide emissions.If people change their lifestyle, we can save energy and reduce emissions.”The campaign also suggests that people take advantage of an extra hour of morning sunlight by improving their lifestyle in general by running, doing yoga and eating a nutritious breakfast. It is the latest initiative ( 倡议 ) fighting climate change by the Japanese Environment Ministry, which is faced with the challenge of reducing carbon dioxide emissions by 25% from the level of 1990 within the next decade. It was the same government department that launched the Cool Biz campaign five years ago, which encourages workers to wear short-sleeved shirts and offices not to turn air conditioner lower than 28 degrees Celsius during summer. 72.The Morning Challenge campaign is aimed at .
A.saving electricity and cost in Japan B. reducing carbon dioxide emission at home C.improving Japanese citizens’ lifestyle D. making full use of morning sunlight 73.The underlined phrase “carbon footprint” in Paragraph 2 is closest in meaning to . A. carbon paper B. carbon dioxide emission C.the plan of coal industry D.the footsteps the Japanese can hear 74.Getting up an hour earlier, people are advised to . A.work out together B.exercise outdoors C. enjoy the sunshine D. live a healthier life 75.By 2020, the Japanese hope to reduce carbon dioxide emission from the level of 1990 by . A.25% B.85% C.28% D.20%
第Ⅱ卷 非选择题 （共 35 分） 第一节 任务型读写（共 10 小题，每题 1 分，满分 10 分） 阅读下面短文,根据所读内容在表格中的空白处填入恰当单词。注意：每个空格只填一个单词。 Although everyone has a creative side and a logical side, some people find it a challenge to get in touch with their creative side. Being creative means being prepared to think of new and original ways to do things. Here are some ways to help you get in touch with your creative side. When you want to be creative , it’s very important to relieve any tension from your body so that your mind can be open to new experiences and not be occupied with dealing with tension or stress. It’s possible to relax very quickly if you take three or four deep breaths. In the relaxed state you pick up a pen and start to write down all the potential ways that you could take to achieve what you want. You might find that you would like to use paints instead or a musical instrument to express your new found creativity and explore where it leads you. Once you are fully relaxed, you can begin to think about the project you are attempting to complete and allow your mind to wander over various possibilities rather than immediately going for the obvious logical way to do it. Close your eyes and ask yourself what ways there might be to solve your project and notice the scenarios (设想) which appear in your mind as you do this. You may notice pictures, sounds or emotions or a combina tion of all three. Then imagine yourself moving into the scenario that you are thinking about and then discover what might or might not work for you and others. Be aware of any emotions that come up when you visit the various scenarios(情节). Keep a notebook handy to write down your experiences and insights as a result of your visualization（可视化）. It’s easy to dismiss unusual or different solutions which you haven’t tried before but it’s important to be prepared to experiment and play with them. Sometimes what is needed is just doing something even if you are uncertain of the potential outcome. People often think of all the possible ways that something won’t work and as a result they dismiss the idea of performing an experiment to see what would happen. The reality is that we can't foretell the future, so it’s useful to plan for it in a creative and exciting new way.

When I was still a little child, I hoped that I could be a teacher in the future. For so many years, I have been eager to teach lovely children. Being a teacher calls for wonderful personalities, such as patience, unselfishness, communication ability, creativity, carefulness and so on. As you know, I am a patient and diligent girl. I am not only unselfish and creative, but also I can express myself clearly and freely. I think I possess the qualities of a good teacher. Right now I am still a middle school student. I am working hard at my lessons so that I can learn more and can be admitted to a famous university in the future. Therefore, I am qualified to be a good teacher in the future.
