第二题 阅读理解 （共两节，每题 2 分，满分 40 分。 ）
第一节：阅读理解（共 15 小题，每小题 2 分，满分 30 分.阅读下列短文，从每 题所给的 4 个选项中选出最佳选项，并写在答题纸上相应的位置上。 ） A You must know that the P.E. exam has become more and more crucial in China. It makes up 30 points of the whole points of the high school entrance exam in many provinces. But lots of students don’t care more about sports. So I’d say: Don’t begin exercising until you enter Grade Nine or before the exam! Start now! In middle schools in America, teenagers have to run a mile if they want to pass the P.E. test. They are timed , and many students compare their times with others’. It might be difficult for students who haven’t got enough exercise to run the complete mile. They have to finish by walking! Students who are out of shape are out of breath after running! They get poor grades and some of them even have to take the class over again! For the 7th and 8th grade students, I think you still have plenty of time to get interested in sports. There are many different sports to try. As you know, the P.E. exam could include football in the coming years. Make sure you can find some sports that interest you! There are many advantages to get fit! You will feel better and look better. You won’t have to rush to get ready for your P.E. exams when you become a 9th grade student. The most important is that you won’t be trying to catch your breath while other students go quickly past you in physical situation and life! ( ) 21. If your full points are 680 including your P.E. points, the points of cultural courses are ______. A. 30 ( A. needn’t be timed C. has to walk to the finishing line ( future? A. Football. ( ( A. Six. B. Walking. B. Five. C. Running. C. Four. D. Basketball. D. Two. ) 24. How many advantages may you get if you exercise early? ) 25. What’s the best title of the passage? A. High School Entrance Exam B. How to Have the P.E. Class B. 650 C. 680 D. 710 ) 22 In America, if a student can’t finish the running, he or she ______. B. might ask the teacher for a rest D. can’t take the P.E. class over again
) 23. Which sport might be included in your high school entrance exam in the
C. How to Be Thin
D. Get Fit Early B
“Cool”is a word with many meanings．Its old meaning is used to express a temperature that is a little bit cold． As the world has changed， the word has had many different meanings． “Cool”can be used to express feelings of interest in almost anything. When you see a famous car in the street，maybe you will say, “It’s cool．”You may think，“He’s so cool，”when you see your favourite footballer． We all maximize the meaning of“cool”. You can use it instead of many words such as “new” or “surprising”． Here’s an interesting story we can use to show the way the word is used．A teacher asked her students to write about the waterfall they had visited. On one student’s paper was just the one sentence，“It’s so cool．”Maybe he thought it was the best way to show what he saw and felt． But the story also shows a scarcity（缺乏）of words．Without “cool”，some people have no words to show the same meaning．So it is quite important to keep some credibility （可信性） ． Can you think of many other words that make your life as colourful as the word “cool”? ( A．only one meaning C．many different meanings ( ( ( A．see A．interested in used． A．pleased with ( B．strange to C．worried about D．careful with )30．In the passage，the writer suggests that the word “cool”________． A．can be used instead of many words C．can make your life colourful C In 1901,H.G.Wells, an English writer,wrote a book describing a trip to the moon.

underground cities. They expressed their surprise to the "moon people" they met. In turn, the "moon people" expressed their surprise. "Why," they asked, "are you traveling to outer space when you don't even use your inner space?" H.G.Wells could only imagine travel to the moon. In 1969, human beings really did land on the moon. People today know that there are no underground cities on the moon. However, the question that the "moon people" asked is still an interesting one. A growing number of scientists are seriously thinking about it. Underground systems are already in place. Many cities have underground car parks. In some cities, such as Tokyo, Seoul and Montreal, there are large underground shopping areas. The "Channel", a tunnel connecting England and France, is now complete. But what about underground cities? Japan's Taisei Corporation is designing a network of un- derground systems, called "Alice Cities". The designers imagine using surface space for public parks and using underground space for flats, offices, shopping, and so on. A solar dome (太阳能穹顶) would cover the whole city. Supporters of underground development say that building down rather than building up is a good way to use the earth's space. The surface, they say, can be used for farms, parks, gar- dens, and wilderness. H.G. Wells' "moon people" would agree. Would you? ( ) 31. Which of the following is true according to para.1? A. Human beings successfully landed on the moon in 1901. B. Many explorers met the “moon people” on the moon. C. H.G.Wells imagined the scene of explorers’ landing on the moon. D.

What does the underlined word "it" (Paragraph 2) refer to? A. Discovering the moon's inner space. C. Meeting the "moon people" again. ( B. Using the earth's inner space. D. Traveling to outer space.
) 34. What sort of underground systems are already here with us?
A. Offices, shopping areas, power stations. B. Tunnels, car parks, shopping areas. C. Gardens, car parks, power stations. D. Tunnels, gardens, offices. ( ) 35.

第六题：书面表达 范文： From where I stand , I am not in favor of encouraging kids with cash just because they have got good marks .My parents used to encourage me like this. Whenever I made progress in studies , they bought me my favorite books ,which not only motivated me to learn ,but also helped me get along well with my studies. To get kids motivated to learn , I think we should not treat every child in the same way. To some students , oral praise is essential . Don’t save the praise for only the top score. If possible, involved other adults in praising them . However, this method may not work well with other kids. Maybe what is more important to them is to water a movie or go on a trip together with their parents . It just depends.
