Every morning since I got a smartphone, I’ve used The Weather Channel App to find out what to 27 . On the first morning I had to dress without guidance, but 28 I was able to guess that the day would be cold and foggy by looking out of my window. I couldn’t tell what time it was. I haven’t worn a 29 for more than a year, because my phone showed the time. So I was late for 30 friends who had been on the bus for two hours from Santa Monica to Palos Verdes. I was also late for my part-time job. And 31 , I couldn’t call people to tell them that I was running late. Getting places was harder, too. I got 32 because I couldn’t use the GPS (汽车导航系统) on my phone. My driving, though, got a lot 33 because I no longer had my phone in one hand checking directions while 34 with the other. But the number one trouble was not having my contact list (联络簿). I forgot to write down my friends’ and family members’ phone numbers before I 35 the challenge. It was sad to realize that I couldn’t 36 my brother’s and my mom’s cell phone numbers. Oh, how I wished to turn on the phone for just a second to look up phone numbers! Even with all the problems, however, I found 37 not worrying about missing a text message or an e-mail. This 38 was a great learning experience. It surprised me how I’d taken no notice of even the 39 things like remembering phone numbers. We all should take some time to think about how we can depend 40 on our cell phones. 26. A. But B. And C.

Hats are also worn to show politeness and as signs of social position. But nowadays, hats, especially women’s hats, are much more than that. More exactly, hats have changed into fashion and style symbols by many movie stars. What’s more, people now consider many different features (特点)when choosing even a simple hat. Many designers point out that, when choosing the right hat, it’s important to consider the color of your skin as well as your hair, your height, and the shape of your face.
First of all, the color of the hat should match the color of your skin and hair. For instance, black hats should be avoided if you are dark skinned. If a purple hat is placed on top of red hair, one will look as attractive as a summer flower. Second, the height of the hat is also an important point. Tall women should not go for hats with tall crowns, just as short women should choose hats with upturned brims to give the look of height. Third, and most importantly, the shape of the face decides the kind of hat one should pick. A small, gentle hat that fits the head looks good on a small face. However, women with big, round faces should choose a different style.
As the saying goes, “Fine feathers make fine birds.” A good hat can not only help your dress but also support your features, so why not choose the best possible one next time you want to be in public? 44. What does the underlined word “harsh” in Paragraph 1 probably mean? A. good B. strange C. poor D. different 45. According to the article, which of the following women would look most attractive? A. A big-faced woman who wears a small, nice hat. B. A short red-haired woman who wears a purple hat. C. A tall woman who wears a hat with a huge upturned brim. D. A small dark-skinned woman who wears a black hat with a tall crown. 46. What does the last paragraph suggest? A. Hats are worn on the head to keep warm. B. Hats can help you look better in public. C. Hats are not as important as character. D. Hats can make you look much taller. 47. What is the best title for the article? A. How to Show Your Social Position B. How to Improve Your Features C. How to Choose a Proper Hat D. How to Design a Nice Hat C Bottled water has become the choice for people who are healthy and thirsty. Bottled water is all over the world. But some say the planet’s health, and people’s health may be suffering from it. The idea that bottled water is safer for humans may not be true. The Natural Resources Defense Council of America said, “There is no promise that because water comes out of a bottle, it is cleaner or safer than water from the tap.” Another New York City-based action group added that some bottled water is “really just tap water in a bottle—sometimes more clean, sometimes not.”
It is not proven that bottled water is better than tap water. Nick Reeves from the Chartered Institution of Water and Environmental Management said, “The high mineral content (含量) of some bottled water makes them not good for feeding babies and young children.” Also, most bottled water doesn’t have fluoride (氟化物), which can make teeth stronger. Kids are drinking more bottled water and less fluoridated tap water, and some say that’s behind the recent rise in bad teeth. Storing is another problem. Placed near heat, the plastic bottles can produce bad chemicals (化学物质) into the water. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, some 2.7 million tons of plastic are used worldwide to bottle water each year. The plastic can take between 400 and 1,000 years to break down. In terms of energy use, plastic bottles are also not cheap. One report said that if water and soft drink bottlers had used 10 percent recycled materials in their plastic bottles, they would have saved about 72 million gallons of gas. So, if you are worried about the effect of bottled water on the Earth, you can take the following steps. ● Drink from your tap. Unless your government warns against this, it should be fine. ● Get a container (容器). Carry your tap water in a steel or a lined drinking container, and clean it between uses. ● Keep it cool. Don’t drink from a bottle that has been sitting in the sun, don’t store it near chemicals, and don’t reuse plastic bottles. ● Choose glass containers over plastic if possible. When finished, recycle! 48. What is the main idea of the article? A. Drinking tap water is the only choice for people. B. Glass containers are better than plastic bottles. C. Plastic bottles are harmful to the environment. D. Bottled water may not be as good as we think. 49. What can we learn about plastic bottles from the article? A. They break down in less than 300 years. B. They can be used for many other things. C. They are a risk to the environment. D. They are cheap to make. 50. According to the article, we can know that bottled water is __________. A. no problem for the environment B. more expensive than tap water C. always safer than tap water D. better for babies 51. Which of the following about tap water is NOT mentioned in the article? A. There are a lot of problems storing tap water. B. Bottled water can be just tap water in a bottle. C. It may be better for your teeth. D. It may contain fluoride. 第二部分 Ⅰ. 听力理解 第三节：（共 5 小题；每小题 1.5 分，满分 7.5 分） 听下面一段对话，根据题目要求在相应的横线上写下第 1 题至第 5 题的关键信息，每小题仅填 写一个 词。这段对话你将听两遍。 ．．

These lessons are not only about the dance itself. It’s also important to learn about manners (礼节) to get along well with other dancers. What are some of the manners you should know about in Latin dance? 1. Sit out if the dance floor is overcrowded. There are times when there are too many people on the dance floor. When the dance floor is overcrowded, people can run into each other, causing people to get angry. If you are polite, you will sit out in order to give way to other dancers. This way, they can perform with enjoyment. 2. Do not get in the way of other dancers. There may be times when you need to share one dance floor. The best way to do it is to start in a place
not too close to the other dancers. When you see that they need to move into your space, allow them some more space to complete their performance. Once they are finished, you will have the space to yourself and the people next to you will make space for you. 3. The dance floor is for dancing. In the dance hall, do not use the dance floor to talk to your friends, discuss, or disagree about something. Dance floors are not sitting areas where you can do just anything. You will bother other dancers on the dance floor. 4. Avoid stopping other dancers. You might need to step onto the dance floor while other dancers are performing. If you need to do this, walk around the dancers to avoid stopping them. This is one way of showing respect to your friends. You would not want them to stop you if you were the one dancing, so do not do it to them. If all dancers would take these Latin dance manners to heart, then people would get along better on the dance floor. 1. What should you do if there are too many dancers on the dance floor? ________________________________________________________________________ 2. What should you do when other dancers move into your space on the dance floor? ________________________________________________________________________ 3. What should you do to avoid stopping other dancers when dancing on the same dance floor? ________________________________________________________________________ 4. What is the passage mainly about? ________________________________________________________________________ Ⅲ. 阅读理解（共 4 小题；每小题 2 分，满分 8 分） 阅读下面短文，从各题所给的 A、B、C、D 四个选项中选出最佳答案。 As summer comes near, many children are really happy to forget about school for a few months. However, they might be taking that goal too seriously. Studies have found that children often forget between one and three months’ worth of school learning during the summer months. Spelling and math abilities drop off the most, while reading is not really influenced by the time off. The main reason for this is because most children sometimes read outside of the classroom, whether newspapers, magazines, books, or video game guides. However, their math and spelling skills only get exercised in the school setting. The first purpose of summer holidays was to let farm children have time off to help work in the fields during the growing season, but this reason is no longer a good one since fewer kids actually work on farms today. Some cities in the United States, such as Los Angeles, have moved to a year-round school timetable, which may help reduce the loss of school skills that happens during the long summer holiday. To improve skills and to keep a good level of preparation, headmasters suggest trips to museums, summer camps, holidays with educational value, and visits to libraries to keep kids interested throughout the summer. There are other educational systems that provide holidays while still keeping students’ skills up to date. For example, in Japan, students attend class for seven weeks in a row, followed by two weeks of holiday. This continues the whole year. In Italy, students attend class six days per week, but finish at 1: 30 pm each day, so that school does not run their life the way that it does in America, where students attend high school from 7: 45 am until 3: 00 pm each weekday. In areas where there are not enough classrooms—in Afghanistan or Somalia, for example—older students attend classes in the morning while the younger kids go to school in the afternoon. Headmasters fear that the three-month summer holiday stops the flow of learning. Just as students become used to new math problems or new ideas in reading, writing, or thinking skills, they “shut down” during the summer holiday. When they go back to school after the long summer holiday, they take up to two months to return to their previous (先前的) level of skill. So the debate continues: whether to continue holidays or to make changes based on the Los Angeles or the Japanese models. 1. Which skills suffer the most over the summer holidays? A. Math and reading. B. Math and spelling. C. Reading and writing. D. Reading and thinking. 2. What can we learn about the first purpose of summer holidays? A. It is still widely acceptable now. B. It was popular in some cities. C. It is not a good reason for city kids. D. It was more for teachers than for students. 3. The underlined phrase “shut down” in the last paragraph probably means __________. A. stop learning B. get sick C. go on reading D. focus on studies
4. What can we infer from the passage? A. Parents always read to their kids to keep reading skills. B. Summer holidays lead to the loss of all the school skills. C. Students love holidays and get their mind off learning in holidays. D. In Italy students attend classes in the late afternoon six days a week.
