答题卡上将该项涂黑。

56. What can we infer from the above about the movies mentioned? A. Mr. Peabody & Sherman reflects the feature of the novel completely. B. Child’s Pose is worse than other Romanian films made in the past decade. C. Winter ’s Tale is not considered by the writer as interesting as its original.

B Creativity is generally characterised by the ability to observe the world in new ways, to find hidden patterns, to make connections between seemingly unrelated phenomena, and to produce solutions. Creativity involves two processes: thinking, then producing. If you have ideas, but don’t act on them, you are imaginative but not creative. Some people say creativity has nothing to do with innovation—that innovation is a discipline, implying that creativity is not. In fact, creativity is also a discipline, and a crucial part of the innovation equation. There is no innovation without creativity. A study on creativity shows 8 in 10 people feel that unlocking creativity is critical to economic growth and nearly two-thirds of people feel creativity is valuable to society, yet a striking minority – only 1 in 4 people – believe they are living up to their own creative potential. Another study reveals that we are naturally creative and as we grow up we learn to be uncreative. Creativity is a skill that can be developed and a process that can be managed. Creativity begins with a basis of knowledge, learning a discipline, and mastering a way of thinking. You learn to be creative by experimenting, exploring, questioning assumptions, using imagination and synthesing (综合) information. Learning to be creative is similar to learning a sport. It requires practice to develop the right muscles. Beliefs that only special, talented people are creative weaken our confidence in our creative abilities. The concept that geniuses (天才) such as Shakespeare, Picasso and Mozart were ―gifted‖ is a myth (神 话). Researchers examined outstanding performances in the arts, mathematics and sports, to find out if ―the widespread belief that to reach high levels of ability a person must possess a born potential called talent.‖ Few showed early signs of promise prior to parental encouragement. No one reached high levels of achievement in their field without devoting thousands of hours of serious training. Mozart trained for 16 years before he produced an acknowledged master work. Moreover many high performers achieve levels of excellence today that match the abilities of a Mozart, or a Gold Medallist from the turn of the century.

58. Real creative people must be good at ______.

A. relating various things to each other B. using their heads whenever possible C. looking at things from different angles D. putting what they think of into practice 59. Why does the writer refer to learning a sport? A. To claim that people are not born creative. B. To illustrate the difficulty of acquiring creativity. C. To prove that creativity begins with knowledge. D. To show the relation between creativity and sports. 60. A conclusion can be drawn from the passage that ______. A. creative people are equal to gifted people B. how hard you work decides if you will succeed C. talent is not as important to creative people as confidence D. parental encouragement plays a key role in developing creativity

C Everyone is familiar with white fat, which serves as an energy warehouse. Many mammals also have brown fat, which has the unique ability to produce heat. Brown fat is sometimes mistaken for a type of gland (腺), which it resembles more than white fat. It varies in color from dark red to tan. When the animal is exposed to a cold environment, the color darkens. In contrast to white fat, brown fat has numerous nerves which provide sympathetic stimulation (刺激) to the fat cells. Brown fat is most noticeable in newborn animals, wrapped round the central organs to keep them warm. In human infants it occupies up to 5% of body weight, then declines gradually. Certain quantities of brown fat can be discovered in adult humans, especially when they are exposed to cold temperatures. Most of brown fat in adults is located in the lower neck. Exposure to cold leads to sympathetic stimulation of brown fat cell. As in white fat, sympathetic stimulation promotes hydrolysis (水解) of triglyceride (甘油三酸脂), with release of fatty acids. In contrast to other cells, including white fat cells, brown fat cells express UCP1, which gives the cell’s mitochondria (线粒体) an ability to produce heat rather than ATP. Within brown fat cells, most fatty acids are immediately combined with oxygen in mitochondria and a large amount of heat is produced. There is only about 50g of brown fat in the neck region and it switches on and off throughout the

day as it’s exposed to different temperatures or if you exercise or eat. But this capacity is much greater in young children compared with adolescents and adults. The challenge is now to use the knowledge to find out what might switch on brown fat. If it is switched on, we can benefit from it. Brown fat produces lots of heat by burning calories. Unlike white fat, brown fat does not expand our ageing waistlines. And that’s why the race is on to find out more about brown fat, and how humans could use it to our advantage, though we would waste energy unnecessarily, and we would sweat a lot and forever be opening windows.

61. Which is the unique factor of brown fat producing heat? A. Fatty acids. C. UCP1. B. Triglyceride. D. ATP.

62. We can learn from the passage that brown fat ______. A. becomes less in amount with age B. proves less active in low temperatures C. exists nowhere but in the lower neck D. has nothing in common with white fat 63. The underlined word ―infants‖ in Paragraph 3 means ―______‖. A. cells B. organs C. bodies D. babies

64. We take special interest in brown fat mainly because it helps us ______. A. save energy C. keep warm B. develop power D. keep our figure

D I do not know Sybrina Fulton. Nor can I claim to understand the depth of her pain. Yet, we share a deep connection. A common feature experienced by those women who face the challenge of raising a Black male child in a nation that far too often views Black male bodies through fear. You see, Ms. Fulton is living my nightmare (恶梦). A constant worry that has stayed in the back of my mind since the birth of my eldest son, some sixteen years ago. Through the years, I have witnessed the world’s reaction to my son evolve as he has grown from a small boy to a young man. In his early years, his easy smile and lovable character were nothing less than magnetic (有磁性的). Complete strangers would approach him in the street, draw him into conversation, and find themselves easily struck by his lively spirit. Even at that time I worried, how would my son react

when in the years to come some of those who found themselves so impressed by this cute, intelligent boy, might grasp their purse tighter as he walked by. Over the years I have sought to protect his spirit from the hurt that comes from undeserved hatred. I have also sought to arm him with the knowledge that could one day save his life. He knows, for example, that if he is ever pulled over by the police, that he is to keep both hands on the wheel at all times and only reach for his license when the officer is specifically observing his actions. He knows, even in less threatening situations, that rough play and loud interactions with his buddies of any color will be viewed very differently when he does it, than when his white friends display the very same behavior. Still, the truth of the matter is, no amount of advice or voiceless behavior overcomes the physical, immovable fact of the color of his skin. His intelligence, easy smile, and lovable character won’t protect him from unfounded assumptions of criminality. What makes the Trayvon Martin travesty (歪曲) of justice so painful to me, personally, is the knowledge that Trayvon’s mother loved her baby no less than I love mine. The various pictures of moments throughout a happy childhood that have now found a home on nationwide newscasts provides clear evidence of that. Yet no amount of love and care, and no words of advice could have saved her son from the cruel killing he faced at the hands of a self-appointed neighborhood watch-dog. And perhaps even worse, nothing could have prepared her for the inhuman way her son has been treated by officials even in death. To think for three long days, his parents searched for him while officials failed to inform them of his fate and instead, performed drug and alcohol tests on his lifeless body, while failing to do the same for his attacker—the only one of the two who indeed had a criminal past is frankly, unforgivable. To know that the words of her son’s killer were given more weight than eye-witnesses and taped evidence of her child’s screams and eventual death must be heartbreaking. But to also have to live with the fact that his attacker still breathes free while her son lays buried underground is certainly more than any sorrowful parent should have to endure (忍受). It is this type of pain that is not unfamiliar to the Black experience in America, for this is the Black mothers’ burden. A burden we have endured for centuries. We know the pain of having our newborn babies grabbed from our loving arms to be sold into lifelong servitude (奴役) and to never again experience the warmth of a mother’s loving hug. Yet, there is still the rightful expectation, that in modern-day America, the wheels of justice would not be stopped. So today, it is my hope that Trayvon’s mother, father, family and friends can take some comfort in the fact that millions of Americans of every color stand with them in their fight for justice. This is a burden no family should have to endure alone.

We will not give up. We will not forget. We will continue the fight until justice is done.

65. What do you know about Sybrina Fulton? A. She was anxious about her son. B. She was painful to lose her son. C. She had trouble in raising her son. D. She had the same dream as the writer. 66. Who does the writer actually refer to when mentioning ―grasp their purse tighter‖? A. Passers-by. C. Teenagers. B. White people. D. Wealthy people.

67. By ―keep both hands on the wheel at all times‖, the writer means her son should ______. A. get ready to resist C. show his innocence B. remain where he is D. pretend to be scared

68. From the story of Trayvon Martin, we can infer that ______. A. he was killed simply because of his color of skin B. he was accused of taking drug even after his death C. he kept silent even when he was being attacked D. the police failed to find strong evidence against the attacker 69. The article is mainly intended to ______. A. draw attention to the facts about killings B. give comfort to the victims’ families C. appeal for the end to the terrible situation D. display hatred for terrible phenomena 70. Which can be the proper title for the passage? A. The cruel killings B. The daily sufferings C. The black son’s fate D. The black mother ’s burden

第Ⅱ卷 (两部分 共 35 分)

第四部分 任务型阅读 (共 10 小题;每小题 1 分,满分 10 分)
请认真阅读下列短文,并根据所读内容在文章后表格中的空格里填入一个最恰当的单词。 注意:每个空格只填 1 个单词。请将答案写在答题卡上相应题号的横线上。 Ambition is the driving force behind every great accomplishment yet, on the other hand, it’s a constant voice urging you to do more. When ambition bothers you, it feels like no matter how much you accomplish or how hard you work, you haven’t done enough. This kind of fear always stays hidden in you. You fear not because you are unsuccessful but because you are unsatisfied with yourself. If you can’t control ambition, your mind becomes painful. Then how can you manage your ambition? Here are some suggestions for you.


Each year most of us set goals. Most of us also file away those goals until the clock strikes

midnight 12 months later. But goals, not unlike objectives that are set by a board (董事会) in a business, are unfixed things. What’s a priority in January seems laughable in December. So hold your personal board meeting each quarter. During this meeting, review your goals, analyze your performance over the period, find what you wish to accomplish and what can wait and then make necessary adjustments to your goals. Breaking yearly goals into quarters allows you to appreciate the progress you’ve made. Day by day it can be hard to miss all the great stuff you’ve been doing.


It’s tough not to get caught up in the success of others. Almost daily, ―overnight successes‖ fill the

webs, often with people much younger than you. If this is the benchmark (参照点) that you compare yourself to, it’s tough to feel like you’re doing enough. In reality, with this benchmark, it’s impossible to do enough. When you’re chasing others, you’re chasing a finish line that’s always developing and never ending. Remember, the success of others is not your roadmap or path to happiness.


Complacency (自满) sounds like a bad word, but not if it’s selective. The reality is that certain

things take time, regardless of how much you’d like them to move quicker. Other things can move with your help. Seeing the difference between the two is where selective complacency comes into play. Every now and again, you’ll need to select complacency. Some things take patience so you have to focus on the things that need your attention without the distraction of what’s to come. Every single person you admire struggles with managing their ambition. We all face feelings of mediocrity (平庸), not doing enough, not making enough, not winning enough. So the mental side of our career is extremely challenging. It reveals that ambition means power, but only if you know how to use it.

第五部分 书面表达 (满分 25 分)
81. 阅读下面短文,然后按照要求写一篇 150 词左右的英语短文。 Don’t worry if you have problems! If you’re breathing, you have difficulties. It’s the way of life. And believe it or not, most of your problems may actually be good for you! The lagoon (环礁湖) side of the Great Barrier Reef looks pale and lifeless, while the ocean side is lively and colorful. The reason is that the coral (珊瑚) around the lagoon side is in still water, with no challenge for its survival. It dies early. The coral on the ocean side is constantly being tested by wind, waves and storms. It has to fight for survival every day of its life. As it is challenged and tested it changes

and adapts. It grows healthy. It grows strong. And it reproduces. That’s how it is with people. Challenged and tested, we come alive! Like coral struck by the waves, we grow. Physical demands can cause us to grow stronger. Mental and emotional stress can produce strength and patience. Spiritual testing can produce strength of character and faithfulness. So, you have problems—no problem! Just tell yourself, ―There I grow again!‖

One possible version: Corals on the ocean side are stronger than those on the lagoon side because they go through various challenges, which reflects our life and inspires us to face problems bravely. There is no denying that life is full of challenges. I have a sense of anxiety about study. At times I have trouble communicating with my parents, and at other times there is misunderstanding between my friends and me. Once in a while, I feel it difficult to live my dreams. In face of difficulties, I think, it is our attitudes that matter. We should keep in mind that challenge means not only hardship but also opportunity. Fighting against difficulty will finally make us strong, confident and successful. So, I won’t escape from my problems but try to solve them by improving my learning methods and exchanging ideas with my parents and friends. I’m sure I’ll achieve my goal someday.

The shop closes in five minutes. W: I won’t keep you long then. It was about some saucepans you had in your window last week. M: Last week, madam? I can’t remember which ones you mean. What were they like? W: Oh, they were lovely! Sort of imitation wood, dark brown color, country-style, you know, and if I remember correctly, they had a sort of leaf pattern, or was it a flower pattern? M: That’s strange. I don’t recognize any of the ones we had from that description. Are you sure they were in this shop? W: Well, you must know the ones I mean. They were on sale, a real bargain, reduced to a quarter of the original price. I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw them.

M: I’m afraid the sales are over now, madam, and I know we sold out of all the saucepans. W: I don’t think you did, actually. At least, my neighbor, Mrs. Cliffe, told me she saw some here only yesterday. M: Well, it’s all new stock in the window now. W: May I have a look, to see if there’s anything else? M: Uh, well, madam, as you know, we were just closing. And perhaps, madam, if you come tomorrow, I could show you everything we have in our range of kitchenware. And there are still one or two things on sale... W: Oh, look! That one there! That’s the sort of thing I was looking for! Text 10 One day last summer I was traveling on the London Underground, on the Piccadilly Line. We stopped at Green Park and a few people got on. Among them were an elderly lady and an elderly gentleman, maybe her husband. Actually, he didn’t quite get on the train because the automatic doors closed on him as he was getting on. I know from experience that this isn’t really a problem — you just push your arms out and the doors move back. However, this couple appeared to be unfamiliar with the underground and this man did the worst thing possible — he stepped back but somehow leaned forward. This meant that the doors closed on his neck so his head was inside the train and the rest of his body was outside. He had a most peculiar expression on his face and he was waving his arms up and down. His wife, who had found a seat, didn’t seem to be the least disturbed. I realized that there was a real danger that he might be dragged along the platform and seriously injured, so I leapt from my seat and, along with two other men, pulled at the doors, which soon sprang back. Nobody else did anything, apart from one person who said, ―Pull the communication button‖ but remained seated. The man took his seat next to his wife. They were both completely calm and didn’t say a word.
