View” talk the next morning. He asked me to speak to the group. After the call, my whole body became feverish and panicky. The time from his call to the next morning seemed like years. The whole night, I could not sleep with many ominous apprehensions in mind. One of them was to call the principal with regret and tell him that I could not come. Finally, I gathered some courage. I thought, “If I miss this opportunity, surely the school will never invite me again to any of their programs.” I reached the school in time. Before my turn came, my whole body was trembling. When my turn came and I started speaking, my heartbeat increased and my mouth went dry. I wasn’t even able to read the written speech properly. I was not aware of where I was standing and what I was reading. That was the day when I realized my biggest weakness, Public Speaking. After my speech, I met with the principal and explained what happened to me. He told me that this happens to everyone. Even great speaker, faced the same things when they started. He suggested that I come again next time. Around one month later, I was invited to refer to a topic on Motivation. This time I was feeling comfortable. My speech was not only appreciated by the principal as well as the teachers, because I was able to get my idea across to them. They encouraged and praised my efforts. After delivering is successfully, I became more confident .l said to myself, “If I can speak in front of such a learned audience, like the principal who educates others, I can now speak in front of others too.” I started delivering lectures in my plant, on various topics like Self Motivation, Personality Development, Personal Excellence, Spoken English and Presentation Skills. This has become a passion for me. I learned that everything is possible if we have the courage to take the first step. 21.Which of the following is the best title for the passage? A. Practice Makes a Man a Better Speechmaker B. Public Speaking Makes a Man Embarrassed. C. Principal Provides the Best Chances. D.

Questions arise, though, when it comes to all of the decisions involved in choosing a college. One of the first considerations may be finance. State and public colleges are often the least expensive. Often, though, the better colleges are private and more expensive. It is sad when gifted students cannot attend a college of their choice just for financial reasons. Another major factor is location. Whether the college is in a small town or large city can have a major impact on its activities. A water lover probably will be more comfortable spending four years near an ocean or a lake. Those who cannot tolerate heat will probably be more comfortable at a northern college. Distance from home may also come into consideration. If family is a top priority, that person should stay close to home; on the other hand, if independence is desired, a campus farther from home would be more appropriate. School size also plays a major role in the decision process. If you want to get to know your teachers, a small college is suitable. For those of you who consider yourself a “ people person” and want a wide range of activities, a large college is more fitting. Your area of interest is another factor to consider in the decision-making process if you want to get the most from your education. The whole point of college is to learn what is of interest to you. Crucially, one must take into consideration the colleges by which you can realistically be accepted. An Ivy League school for an average student would probably not be a good match. Similarly, an average school for an above-average student would not work well. The college should provide enough of a challenge for the student to work hard. Although there may not be the perfect college out there, there probably will be one that is close. Those who cannot find a suitable college are probably not looking hard enough. 28.When it comes to going to college the author thinks ________. A. financial situation is the first to consider B. students are unwilling to leave their home C. students will become homesick D. students are eager to attend their ideal university 29.What is the main idea of the third paragraph? A. Students can be independent at college. B. A long distance will make students upset. C. The location of the college is a main factor. D. The climate must be taken into consideration. 30.What does the underlined part “people person” in the passage mean? A. A person of great capacity. B. A very particular person. C. A very sociable person. D. A person of great importance. 31. What can we learn about an Ivy League school from the last paragraph? A. An Ivy League school is probably suitable for top students. B. An Ivy League school provides few challenge for the students. C. An Ivy League school is a perfect college for all students.
D. An Ivy League school only accepts above-average students. D People in several American states may be surprised to see cars on city streets without a driver. Experimental driverless vehicles now are legal in Florida, Nevada and California. They are pointing the way to a future that is not far down the road. The high-tech company Google has a number of self-driving cars, which had covered 480,000 kilometers by August. Volvo is among the companies doing road tests and says it plans to sell driverless cars by 2020. In September, California Governor Jerry Brown signed an act to allow autonomous vehicles on the roads of his state. " Today we're looking at science fiction becoming tomorrow's reality-the driverless car. " The technology for these cars includes cameras, radar and motion sensors. The systems have been improved through competitions sponsored by the U. S. government agency DARPA. Engineer Richard Mason of the Rand Corporation helped design driverless vehicles for DARPA challenge races. Cars have become much more fuel-efficient, and new electronic features are' making Hondas safer, said Angie Nucci of Honda America. " A camera on the passenger-side mirror actually engaged on your guiding screen so you can safely change lanes. " Other safety features include warning systems on the front and the sides of the cars. These systems help drivers , but don't replace them. Curator Leslie Kendall of the Petersen Automotive Museum said autonomous cars will make the high ways safer． "By taking out drivers, you also remove most risks of an accident," Kendall said. He said consumers, however, may be unwilling to lose control. "It may take them time to come to realize that the technology is indeed reliable, but it will have to prove itself first. " Mason said the technology already works and the biggest challenge now is getting down the cost for driverless vehicles from hundreds of thousands of dollars to something more affordable. He said this will happen as the technology is improved. 32.According to the passage, California Governor Jerry Brown . A. is for the idea of having driverless cars B. sponsored the DARPA competition to improve the driverless system C. has already bought a new autonomous car D. thinks that driving safety is the most important issue in his state. 33. What is the role of the systems mentioned in Paragraph 3? A. They can help cars run much faster. B. They can take the place of drivers now. C. They can make cars run without fuel. D. They can help people drive more safely. 34.In kendall’s opinion, who probably don’t rely on the driverless cars at first? A. Managers in the high-tech company like google B. Officers from the U.S government agency DARPA C. Car consumers D. Vehicle designers
35. According to Richard Mason, what is the biggest challenge for driverless cars? A. They need to have more comfortable seats. B. They are now too expensive for consumers. C. They are travelling at a low speed. D. They are not favored by car racers.. 第二节（共五小题：每小题 2 分，满分 10 分） 根据短文内容，从短文后的选项中选出能填入空白处的最佳选项。选项中有两项为多余选 项。 Different weather makes people feel different. It influences health, intelligence and feelings. In August, it is very hot and wet in the southern part of the United States. 36 In the Northeast and the Middle West, it is very hot at some times and very cold at other times. People in these states have more heart trouble after the weather changes in February or March. The weather can also influence intelligence. For example, in a 1983 report by scientists, IQ of a group of students was very high when a very strong wind came, but after the strong wind, their IQ was 10% lower. 37 Very hot weather, on the other hand, can make it lower. Students in many schools of the United States often get worse on exams in the hot months of the year (July and August). Weather also has a strong influence on people’s feelings. Winter may be a bad time for thin people. They usually feel cold during these months. They might feel unhappy during cold weather. 38 They even don’t like to do outdoor activities. Low air pressure may make people forgetful. 39 There is “good weather ” for heath. People feel best at a temperature of about 18℃. Are you feeling sad, tired, forgetful, or unhappy today? 40 A.
