Born in Strngns, a satellite city of Stockholm, in 1922, Nilsson got his first camera from his father when he was 11 years old．From the early stage, he has been interested in looking at ants and taking photos of them.Throughout the years, he has devoted special attention to capturing the creation of a human being, from conception to birth. In 2006 when his photo book Life was published in both Swedish and English, he was invited to give a lecture at the Stockholm bookstore．He vividly described to the public how he took the photos so that the development process of the embryo can be understood better．Finally when he was signing his name in the book, I asked him what made him so passionate about working on this, he stopped writing and thought for a second, “I think it is the respect for life,” Nilsson said. Nilsson began his career as a photographic journalist in the middle of the 1940s and published a number of photo-essays in Swedish and foreign magazines, including "Polar Bear Hunting in Spitzbergen" (1947) and Midwife. “When I went to the professor to take the embryo photo, I was looking around and then I saw something which was unbelievable, it was a tiny human embryo lies in a very special place, a 10-20 millimeter embryo with hands, arms and eyes, and I got a shock,” Nilsson said. Nilsson began experimenting with new photographic techniques in the mid-1950s to report on the world of ants and life in the sea． revealing macro-studies were published in his book on His ants, Myror (1959), and in the Life in the Sea (1959), and in Close to Nature (1984)．In the 1960s special designed, very slim endoscopes (内窥镜))made it possible for him to photograph the blood vessels and the cavities (空洞) of the body with the necessary depth of field and, in 1970, he used a scanning electron microscope for the first time, he was also considered the pioneer for three
dimension digital pictures of the body organs. After his photographs of human embryo were published, he was encouraged to continue photographing the origins of human being. Nilsson is very modest and sincere．At age of nearly 88, he is still cooperating with colleagues in Karolinska Institute where the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine is selected every year. “He can forget all the other things when he is working and he is still working diligently,” Mrs Nilsson told People’s Daily Online. 61．Why does Nilsson want to document the creation of a human being? A．Because he is a pioneer in medical photography. B．Because he has been interested in taking photos. C．Because he thinks it a way to show respect for life. D．Because he wished to win a Nobel Prize. 62．What can we learn from the passage? A．Nilsson was the only expert in medical photography. B．Nilsson’s camera is specially designed.

"Not only adults but also children and newborn babies are at risk for the adverse effects of passive smoking," said Tang Jingyan, a doctor at the Shanghai Children's Medical Center. "Actually, those young children whose bodies are still growing and developing are more sensitive to the effects of secondhand smoke." Research has shown that children who are exposed to secondhand smoke will suffer from more colds, coughs and sore throats, and they are more likely to suffer from bronchitis, pneumonia and will have a higher risk of developing cancer. Doctors even suggested that children suffering passive smoking are more likely to have behavioral problems and may not develop mentally as quickly as their peers． Other research by the Shanghai Children's Medical Center has found that more than 80
percent of child patients in the center live in a smoke-filled household, where one or both parents smoke． "Though doctors have stressed the harm of passive smoking over and over, it is still hard to reach a totally 'smoke free' home," said a pediatrician named Zhang Yiwen, noting that parents are often tempted to smoke even though they have learned the harmful effects of secondhand smoke. China has 540 million people suffering from passive smoke, 180 million of them younger than 15．The age of smokers is also getting lower, earlier reports said. "There are more young smokers than before．You can see young people wearing a school uniform and carrying a schoolbag light a cigarette on the street．Some of them are even female students," said Jing Xingming, a professor of children's developmental behavior at the center. "Children like to imitate adults, especially their parents． parents often smoke at home, it is If very likely children will develop a smoking habit, which can cause a vicious circle," Jin said. Reports from the Ministry of Health said China has about 350 million smokers, of whom 15 million are underage smokers．Also, around 40 million of the country's 130 million children aged between 13 and 18 had tried smoking, and 15 million had become addicted to tobacco. 66．What is the main idea of the passage?

PART FOUR WRITING Section A Directions: Read the following passage．Complete the diagram by using the information for the passage． Write NO MORE THAN 3 WORDS for each answer. United Nations officials say now fewer people than they thought are infected with the AIDS virus. Last year, the agency known as UNAIDS thought that 39.5 million people were living with HIV．On Tuesday it reduced by 16% to a little more than 33 million.
Agency officials say the low number reflects better information form more countries．The agency reduced the number for five African countries: Angola, Kenya, Mozambique, Nigeria and Zimbabwe. Also, UNAIDS says it now believes the number of new HIV cases per year reached a high in the late 1990s at more than three million．This year, it thinks that 2.5 million people became infected, and 2 million people died of AIDS. Luckily, better treatments are saving lives, and more people are getting the drugs. Yet even as the number of new infections has dropped, UN officials say AIDS is still one of the leading causes of the death worldwide, and the major cause in Africa．African death rates remain high, they say, because treatment needs are not being met．Sub-Saharan Africa had almost 70% of the new cases of HIV reported this year．UNAIDS officials say this is a sharp reduction since 2001, but there is a need to further improve research method. Billions of dollars are being spent preventing and treating HIV．Experts worry that the new number may lead to a drop in financial support．But UNAIDS officials say they do not change the need for immediate action and more money．They warn that in some countries, infection rates that were falling are rising again now． Title: A New Report on (71) Infections (72) (73) Measure Few people are infected with AIDS.

Section B Directions: Read the following passage．Answer the questions according to the information given in the passage and required words limit．Write your answers on your answer sheet. Richard Wagner was a German musician who lived in the mid-19th century．He gained fame by writing opera, a form of performance combining singing, music on instruments, and drama. Wagner’s life and work have been very controversial(有争议的)．While he wrote excellent music, many people think his operas are too dark and serious, lacking tile fun common in operas written before his time. Wagner, on the other hand, thought the opera of his time was too simple．He wanted to make opera a serious form of art that combined drama and music to tell deep stories that would have a strong effect on the audience. Some people thought Wagner’s new kind of music was too different from the operas they were used to hearing．Wagner agreed with them．In fact, he didn’t call his works “operas” at all, using instead a German word that means “Musical Festival” or “Musical play”.
While many people today still do not like Wagner’s operas, they cannot deny that Wagner had a lot of influence on opera as a form of art．Wagner invented the tradition of turning off the lights before starting a play．He also was the first person to make the whole audience sit down for an entire play．Today, almost all operas are performed in this manner. Wagner as a man was even more controversial than Wagner as a writer of music．He hated Jewish people, slept with his friends’ wives, and made many people angry, which we would today think of as evil．Some would say he was a good musician, while others would say that he was a bad musician．But it would be difficult to say he was not an important person in music and in the world. 81．What is the best word that describes Wagner? (no more than one word) 82．What does the underlined word “deep” in Para．3 mean? (no more than 3 words) 83．Why does the author say “Wagner as a man was even more controversial”? (no more than 15 words) 84．List two things that showed Wagner had a lot of influence on opera? (no more than 30 words)

VII、作文： Attending TV Shows Does No Good to Young People Nowadays TV shows are popular in China and have attracted many people．Someteenagers even give up their studies to attend these shows in the hope of becoming famous overnight．Some people think these shows provide young people more chance to show talents, while others believe that attending these shows does no good to the young people．As for me, I prefer to the latter opinion. It should be admitted that some young people like Li yuchun has stood out from the numerous attendants, but that doesn’t mean attending the shows is a good way to become successful for young people．The following reasons can support my view．Firstly, some young people hunt after fame at whatever cost．Secondly, TV shows can subvert the youngsters’ values． They think attending the shows is a shortcut to the success, so they may despise the way of achieving success by hard work．Finally, if the young people fail in these shows, they will suffer a psychological unbalance. In a word, entering for TV shows is not a good way for young people to make a success．I suggest young people should think twice before deciding to attend shows.

Mini-talk: Every four years, Americans elect a president．Any American citizen over 40 years old who was born in the US can be president． There are many political parties in the United States, but, two political parties are much stronger than the others．For over a hundred years, the man elected as president has always been either a Democrat or a Republican．During the election year there are a lot of local elections, called primary elections, held in many of the fifty states．In the primary election, usually held in the winter and spring, candidates run against members of their own parties．In this way they try to get support of party members around the country．During the summer, both parties have conventions where the party members make the final choice for the party’s presidential candidate． Each party chooses a person to run for president and a person to run for vice president．The two candidates work as a team．They will win or lose the election together．Once the final candidates are chosen, they campaign around the country, trying to win votes．The national election is held in November．The candidate who wins becomes president in the following January． The election process is long and costly． Millions of dollars are spent．Individuals prepare to run for presidency for many years．Nearly all of these people fail to win.
