上将该项涂黑。 A It takes more than just practice to become an Olympian. Gold medal performances require some serious nutrition. Have you ever wondered what these successful athletes eat to stay in peak shape? Keri Glassman, a registered dietitian and founder of Nutritious Life Meals, appeared on “Good Morning America” today to give you a glimpse into the diets of some top athletes. Some of their meals could surprise you. Crazy Calorie Count Glassman said Olympians eat a lot of food- quantities that for ordinary people would constitute pigging out.One secret of swimmer Michael Phelps? astonishing performance in the 2008Olympics in Beijing was consuming as many as 12,00 calories in one day. Athletes can eat like this and not gain any weight because their workouts are intense. According to Glassman, Phelps? workouts can burn 4,000 to 6,000 calories in a day, and those calories must be added in order to train the following day. Snacking Secrets Some athletes eat strange foods that improve their performance. Yohan Blake, the Jamaica sprinter and 100-meter world champion, has stolen champion sprinter Usain Bolt?s thunder on the track during the Olympic trials. Asked about how he gets his energy. Blake answered that he eats 16 bananas per day ,Glassman said. Jonathan Horton, the lead gymnast on the Us team, has a blood sugar problem. His solution is honey. When he starts to feel shaky at the gym, he takes honey to boost his energy, Classman said. Foods for Recovery What are the best foods to help the body recover after harsh competition? For Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte, the recovery meal is grilled chicken breasts with Alfredo sauce, whole-grain spaghetti and a salad with lemon juice and olive oil. Lochte, who recently cut out junk food, candy and soda, has undertaken a strength-training regimen(养生法)that involves flipping tractor tires, and tossing beer kegs, Glassman said. 56.What?s the best title of this passage? A.Good Diet Makes a True Olympian. B.Olympians Have Olympic-size Appetites. C.Olympians?Strange Eating Habits.

B Managers and office busybodies might be keen on a clean desk--but it seems that in terms of productivity, they could have it all wrong. A messy desk can actually lead people towards clearer thinking, say researchers from Germany. The researchers found in a series of linked studies- using a messy desk and a messy shop front ---that people actually thought more clearly when all around was chaos, as they sought to simplify the tasks at hand. That is ,visual and mental clutter（杂乱）forces human beings to focus and think more clearly. For instance, famous thinkers and writers such as Albert Einstein and Roald Dahl have been notorious for their untidy desks. “Messy desks may not be ad detrimental as they appear to be, as the problem-solving approaches they seem to cause can boost work efficiency or emhance employees? creativity in problem solving,” say the authors. Oddly, the effect seems to work most on conservatives-political liberals are less liable to be worried about mess in the first place, say the researchers. “Business and government managers often promote ?clean desk? policies to avoid disorganized offices and messy desks, for the purpose of boosting work efficiency and productivity.” Writes a researcher, Jia Liu of the University of Groningen, “This practice is based on the conventional wisdom that a disorganized and messy environment can clutter one?s mind and complicate one?s
judgments” “However, not all evidence supports this conventional link between a messy environment and a messy mind”. The scientists tested people?s response in various?messy?environments, including a messy shop front, a disorganized desk, and even a work environment where a language task?reminded?people of messiness. The authors found in the series of six studies that people tended towards simplicity in their thinking. “They categorized products in a simpler manner, were willing to pay more for a T-shirt that depicts a simple-looking picture, and sought less variety in their choices”, said the researchers. 61.According to the text, a proper way to lead people towards clearer thinking is to A.make a list of priorities C.follow famous people B.simplify the tasks at hand D.mess up their mind .
62.Why did the author take Albert Einstein and Ronald Dahl for example? A.To tell readers untidy desks can make you as famous as celebrities. B.To convince readers that untidiness is not all that bad. C.To inform readers of one way to success-untidy desks. D.To attract readers and show the author?s wide range of knowledge. 63.Which of the following is TRUE according to the passage? A.A messy environment will certainly lead to a messy mind. B.A clean environment will do great harm to work efficiency. C.People tend to clear up the mess before thinking clearly. D.All people are not in favor of “clean desk” in the office. 64.The underlined word “detrimental” probably means A.disadvantageous B.useful . D.accessible
65.What is the main idea for this passage? A.The messier the desks are, the more efficient the employees are. B.Messy desks in the office can have a positive effect on employees. C.We should make our office messy to improve our work efficiency. D.Clean desks can boost the employees? productivity and creativity.
C Anger at the practice of demanding dowries, which can lead to violence against brides, has prompted a takeoff of “Angry Birds” called “Angry Brides” that aims to highlight the illegal practice
still prevalent in many South Asian countries. Dowries-such as jewelry, clothes, cars and money-are traditionally given by the bride?s family to the groom and his parents to ensure she is taken care of in her new home. The custom was outlawed more than five decades ago. But it is still widely practiced, with the groom?s family demanding even more money after marriage, leading to mental and physical annoyance that can drive the woman to suicide. “The Angry Brides game is our way of throwing a spotlight on the nuisance(陋习)of dowry.” said Ram Bhamidi, senior vice president and head of online marketing for Shaadi.com, a matrimonial(婚姻的)website with two million members. “According to a 2007 study, there is a dowry-related death every four hours in India, We condemn this and have consistently run campaigns on social media to help create awareness of the issue”. The name of the app, available on the group?s home page, is a spinoff from the globally popular “Angry Birds” game, Its home page shows a red-clad, eight-armed woman resembling a powerful female Hindu goddess. Underneath, there is a caption: “A woman will give you strength, care and all the love you need ……NOT dowry!” To play the game, users have to try and hit three dodging grooms--a pilot, a builder and a doctor. There are a variety of weapons to choose from, including a frying pan, broomstick, tomato and loafer. Each groom has a price tag, starting at 1.5 million rupees($29,165). Every time the player hits a groom, his value decreases and money is added to the player?s Anti-Dowry Fund ,which is saved posted on their Facebook page. “Since we launched the game last week, more than 270,000 people have liked the app. Both men and women seem to be playing it”, said Bhamidi. 66.What caused “Angry Brides” to appear online? A.Women?s rights?being seriously abused. B.Anger at the practice of demanding dowries. C.The bride?s giving a great many dowries. D.The popularity of Angry Birds online. 67.Which of the following is True about “Dowries”? A.The custom of giving dowries has been in practice for five decades. B.Lack of abundant dowries may lead to the bride?s being in violence. C.The illegal practice of dowries is still popular in many African countries. D.More dowries the bride gives mean a high social status of her family.
68.The underlined word “spinoff” probably means A.relation B.connection C.copy
69.Which of the following is NOT TRUE about the game “Angry Bride”? A.There are a variety of weapons to choose from. B.Ram Bhamidi thinks highly of the game. C.Men players don?t find the game enjoyable. D.The game character looks like a Hindu goddess. 70.What is the text mainly about? A.Women?s unfair treatment in the marriage. B.The popularity of the game “Angry Brides” C.The groom?s demanding too many dowries. D.How to build an equal relation it the marriage.
D Gay marriage, and especially gay parenting, has been in the cross hairs in recent days. On Jan.6, Rick Santorum told a New Hampshire audience that children are better off with a father in prison than being raised in a home with lesbian parents and no father at all. And last Monday(Jan.9), Pope Benedict called gay marriage a threat “to the future of humanity itself”, citing the need for children to have heterosexual homes. But research on families headed by gays and lesbians doesn?t back up these above views. In fact, in some ways, gay parents may bring talents to the table that straight parents don?t. Gay parents “tend to be more motivated, more committed than heterosexual parents on average, because they chose to be parents.” Said Abbie Goldberg, a psychologist at Clark University who researches gay and lesbian parenting. Gays and lesbians rarely become parents by accident, compared with an almost 50 percent accidental pregnancy rate among heterosexuals, Goldberg said. “That translates to greater commitment on average and more involvement”. And while research indicates that kids of gay parents show few differences in achievement, mental health, social functioning and other measures, these kids may have the advantage of open-mindedness, tolerance and role models for equal relationships, according to some research. Not only that, but gays and lesbians are likely to provide homes for difficult-to-place children in the foster system, studies show. Children of gay parents also show less care about gender difference. That?s likely because gays and lesbians tend to have more equal relationships than straight couples, Goldberg said.
“Men and women felt like they were free to pursue a wide range of interests,” Goldberg said. “Nobody was telling them,?Oh, you can?t do that， that?s a boy thing,?or ?That?s a girl thing.” 71.The underlined phrase “in the cross hairs”(in Paragraph 1) probably means A.a great concern B.a big threat C.a political ban . . D.a role model
72.It can be learned from the passage that Rick Santorum
A.opposes the need for children to have heterosexual homes B.thinks children are better off with a father in prison C.believes children are better off in heterosexual homes D.is in favor of children being raised by lesbian parents 73. From Abbie Goldberg?s words, we can learn that .
A.Most heterosexual parents have children by accident B.Gays and lesbians consider carefully before becoming parents C.Heterosexual parents are not committed in the marriage D.There?s no gender difference in gay and lesbian parenting 74. From the passage, we can infer that .
A.Children of gay parents are more talented B.Gay parents like adopting poor children C.Children of gay parents may enjoy more freedom D.Gay parents show no difference in social functioning 75. Which of the following is the advantage of kids of gay parents? A.Tolerance . B.More talents. C.Achievement. 第 II 卷（非选择题 第四部分：书面表达（共两节，满分 45 分） 第一节：阅读表达（共 5 小题，共 15 分） 阅读下面短文，请根据短文后的要求进行答题。 （请注意问题后的字数要求） Fear and pain are two of the most useful things that human beings and animals have，if they are properly used．If fire did not hurt when it burnt，children would play with it until their hands were burnt away．Similarly, if pain existed but fear didn?t，a child would burn himself again and again， because fear would not warn himself to keep away from the fire that had burnt himself before．A really fearless soldier is not a good soldier because he will soon be killed；and a dead soldier is of no use to his army．Fear and pain are therefore two guards without which human beings and animals might soon die out．
In our first sentence we suggested that fear should be properly used．If, for example，you never go out of your house because of the danger of being knocked down and killed in the street by a car, you are letting fear rule you too much．Even in your house you are not absolutely safe：A plane may crash on your house，or you may get cancer! The important thing is not to let fear rule you，but to use fear as your servant and guide instead．Fear will warn you of dangers；then you have to decide what action to take． In many cases，you can take quick and successful action to avoid the danger．For example，you see a car coming straight towards you． Fear warns you， then you jump out of the way, and all is well． In some cases，however, you decide that there is nothing that you can do to ．For
example，you can't prevent a plane crashing onto your house．In this case，fear is no longer of any use，and you have to try to overcome it． 76．What is mainly talked about in this passage?(no more than 12 words)
77．How does the author support his idea in Paragraph 27(no more than 5 words)
78．Why does the author say that a fearless soldier is not a good soldier?(no more than 15 words) 79．What benefit can we get from“fear”according to the passage?(no more than 10 words)
