D. 3:30 pm B Even if trees cannot walk, they are still on the move. In parts of the Arctic, entire forests are moving northward. Across the Arctic, temperatures are rising faster than anywhere else in the world. As that happens, the tree line that marks where forests stop and the treeless tundra （冻土地带） starts has been shifting northward. Trees growing along the tree line must protect themselves from the cold wind. To do this, plants tend to grow horizontal （水平 的）branches low to the ground. The energy it takes for trees to grow this way means they don't have enough energy to make seeds. But as Earth's climate has been warming, trees no longer have to just grow horizontally. Many can instead grow up toward the sky. This takes less energy. And with all the leftover energy, these trees have started producing more seeds. This happens especially in places where the white spruce （白云杉）grows. White spruce, which is a North American tree, is quite able to produce a lot of seeds, which can move long distances in the wind. When wind-blown seeds end up on
the tundra beyond the tree line, they eventually can sprout （发芽） new trees. This explains how a forest can move. Of course, the process would work only if the tundra were warm enough. But in recent years, the whole planet has been warming. New trees will provide shelters for some snow, keeping the sun’s rays from making the white surface disappear. Instead, the trees absorb the sun's heat. This warms the surrounding air. The extra warmth encourages even more trees to produce seeds. That further boosts a forest's ability to expand. In addition, more trees will trap more snow, preventing much of it from being blown away. Snow can trap heat in the soil belo w, which encourages trees to grow. The recent rise of temperature has helped more trees grow past the tree line. People worry about impacts on the animals that depend on frozen conditions for food and shelter. 25. What is the main cause of the trees in the Arctic moving northward? A. The rising temperature. B. The shrinking of northern tundra. C. The fierce and cold wind. D. The abundant resources in the north. 26. What does the underlin ed word, “this”, in Paragraph 2 mean? A. To produce more seeds. B. To move northward C. To respond to the climate change. D. To protect themselves from the cold wind. 27. What can be inferred from the last paragraph? A. New trees can trap the snow, which may make the soil colder. B. The trapped snow prevents new trees from producing more seeds. C. New trees can make the surrounding air warmer. D. New trees can bring more food and shelter for local animals. 28. The passage is most probably taken from _______. A. a health report B. a science report C. a fashion magazine D. a children's magazine C Claude Monet is surely one of the most famous French artists of all. Monet was particularly interested in the effect of light and would paint the same scene in different lighting conditions or times of the day. For example, he painted around 20 versions of the Rouen Cathedral from dawn to dusk. His most famous paintings include his Water lilies series. The paintings of Paul Cézanne had a lot of influence in the development of 20th century art, including Cubism (立体派) and Fauvism (野兽派). Cézanne is one of the most famous French artists and is known as a “post-impressionist”, which was similar in some ways to impressionism but also broke away from some of its limitations. Famous French paintings include his Bathers and Mont St Victoire series. Henri Matisse was one of the most important famous French artists of the 20th ce ntury. He was considered one of the leaders of the Fauvist movement. He h ad a long and varied (多样化的) artistic career, painting in different styles ranging from Impressionism to Abstract. In 1941, Matisse was diagnosed with cancer and was forced into a wheelchair. But this didn’t stop him completing the amazing Chapel of the Rosary in Vence. Degas is probably one of the most fascinating of all the famous French artists.
He is known as one of the founders of Impressionism, but his paintings were also influenced by classicism, romanticism, and realism. His style is definitely very unique. He was a prolific ( 多产的) artist, producing over one thousand works. He is best known for his paintings of ballet dancers. 29. We can know that Claude Monet painted about 20 versions of the Rouen Cathedral . A. within one day B. using the same colors C. at different places D. in different lighting conditions 30. Which style does Bathers most probably belong to? A. Impressionism. B. Post-impressionism. C. Romanticism. D. Abstract. 31. During Henri Matisse’s long artistic career, he __________ . . A. painted paintings of different styles B. did his most famous paintings after 1941 C. painted in the style of Fauvism most frequently D. spent most of his time painting in a wheelchair 32. We can infer from the last paragraph that _________ . A. Degas’ works all belong to Impressionism B. Degas’ works were influenced by many styles C. it’s not easy to tell Deg as’ paintings from other artists’ D. Degas’ paintings influenced classicism, romanticism and realism D A new U．S．government report says more than two million Americans fall ill each year with drug—resistant bacterial infections(感染)，and 23，000 of them are dying as a result ． The head of the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention[CDC]said that the number probably will grow．Officials warn that steps must be taken now to preserve the effectiveness of ant ibiotic(抗生素)drugs． “Without urgent action to stop that trend”，warned Tom Frieden whose agency wrote the report， “the miracle drugs to fight them won’t be available in the future．” “If we are not careful，the medicine chest will be empty when we go there to look for a lifesaving antibiotic for someone with a deadly infection．But if we act now， we can preserve these medications while we continue to work on development of new medicines．”The report names a drug—resistant abuse of gonorrhea(淋病)，which causes about one quarter of a million hospitalizations in the United States annually．Of the number at least 1 4，000 result in death． Drug resistance develops through the overuse and inappropriate use of anti—bacterial agents．These can be：doctors prescribing(开药) them to patients who have viral infections that are not affected by medicine meant to fight bacteria； patients not taking all of their medicine as prescribed，so the bacteria making them sick are only weakened，not killed；antibiotic use in healthy farm animals to prevent illness and promote growth．Antibiotic remainders left in meat and animal products can then lead to drug resistance in humans． To limit the spread of resistant infections，experts recommend wider use of routine immunizations(预防)，as well as hand—washing in hospitals and other health care
facilities．Also，the report urges hand—washing by food handlers． Michael Bell，deputy director of the Division of Healthcare Quality Promotion at CDC ， said : “Patients also can play a role in preserving the effectiveness of antibiotics by asking health care providers a few simple questions．” 33．What’s the best title of the passage? A．Drug Resistance Developing Quickly in the US B．Drug—Resistant Bacterial Infections Growing in the US C．Actions for Preserving Anti-Bacterial Medications in the US D．Preventions of Drug-resistant Bacterial Infections in the US 34．Of those patients admitted to the hospital because of a drug-resistant abuse of gonorrhea annually，deaths add up to_____. A．at least 5.6％ B．about 25％ C．about 1.4％ D．at least 2.5％ 35．One of the approaches through which drug resistance develops is that_____. A．people eat the meat with Antibiotic remainder in animals B．doctors prescribe less antibiotics than needed for patients C．doctors prescribe much more antibiotic than needed for patients D．patients don’t take their ant-bacterial agents that doctors prescribe 第二节(共 5 小题；每小题 2 分，满分 10 分) 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 How to maintain a good friendship It’s not easy for everyone to make friends.

Then, how can we keep a good mood? To begin with, we should keep healthy. It’s known to us that a weak body always has a negative effect on our mood. Secondly, it’s essential to have a good rest. Rest plays a very important role in maintaining our mental health. Thirdly, it’s beneficial to recall those which make us happy. Memories of those things contribute to a good mood. Lastly, think the positive aspect of everything; don’t live life full of worries. By doing these, we can keep a good mood.
