B. To make sure the builders were
is to listen. Just listen. Perhaps the most important thing we ever give each other is our attention. And especially if it’s given from the heart. When people are talking，there’s no need to do anything but receive them. Listen to what they’re saying. Care about it. Most times caring about it is even more important than understanding it. Most of us don’t value ourselves or our love enough to know this. It has taken me a long time to believe in the power of simple sorry，” when someone is in pain. One of my patients told me that when she tried to tell her story people often interrupted to tell her that they once had something just like that happening to them. Her pain became a story about themselves. Eventually she stopped talking to most people. We connect through listening. When we interrupt what someone is saying to let them know that we understand，we move the focus of attention to ourselves. When we listen，they know we care. I have even learned to respond to someone crying by just listening. In the old days I used to reach for the handkerchiefs，until I realized that passing a person a handkerchief may be just another way to shut him down，to take them out of their saying “I’m so
experience of sadness. Now I just listen. When they have cried all they need to cry， they find me there with them. This simple thing has not been that easy to learn. It certainly went against everything I had been taught since I was very young. I thought people listened only because they were too shy to speak or did not know the answer. But now I know that a loving silence often has far more power to heal than the kindest words. 21．What does the author value most in the communication with each other? A．Deep understanding. C．Saying “I’m sorry” B．Attention from heart. D．Doing nothing.
22．The woman patient stopped telling her story to most people because________. A．she didn’t get enough respect from others B．people often told her their own opinions C．people couldn’t understand her sad situation D．she was discouraged by being often interrupted
23．If you hand a handkerchief to someone crying，you may________. A．stop him from letting out his sorrow C．encourage him to continue to cry B．make him embarrassed D．hurt his feelings
24．Which of the following might be the author’s opinion about communication? A． Just listen. B． Keep silent. C． Be careful. B I used to have a friend that was diagnosed with terminal cancer, and the news that he might only live up to six months was a great shock to him, his family, and his friends．However, in spite of the serious illness, he was initially determined to look into all available treatments that might cure or extend his life．I think that when you find yourself in such situations, you tend to look up every possible way for hope of saving your life． With months going on and his health grew worse, I noticed an unexpected change in attitude that came over him ． He had also been a happy person with a cheerful personality, but rather than give in to discouragement and self-pity, he took comfort in God and humanity．His talks focused on others rather than himself, and he spoke of the afterlife as something he was prepared for, believing that his concerned ancestors, including his mother and father, were there waiting for him． In the last few months, weeks, and days of his life, he was kindly cared for by family, friends, his loving wife, who looked after both his physical and emotional needs, and workers from a local hospice （安养院） came to the home to regulate his medication and provide any other needed support．He didn't complain about his fate, and he willingly allowed others to serve him．Indeed, one might think why God allows death and suffering in our world, but for me, such experiences taught me to value family more and kindness for others ． You often can't learn these important attributes in the lap of luxury, and perhaps, such an experience is the greatest and final gift the illness can give those left behind． 25．Which word can best describe the man's initial reaction as soon as he was diagnosed with cancer? A ． Astonished ． B ． Annoyed
D． Tell your own story.
26．What did the man do after he first learned of his illness? A．He was operated on immediately． treatments． C．He retired from his job． nothing． 27．What was the man's main source of comfort after several months with the disease? A． His family and friends． B．The care from others． C．His doctors’ encouragement． belief in humanity． C Would you want a doctor who got high marks in medical school just for trying hard? Apparently many college students would have no problem with that. They believe students are owed a good grade simply because they put a lot of effort into a class. The researchers asked more than 800 undergraduates if they agreed or disagreed with some statements. For example: "If I have completed most of the reading for a class, I deserve a B in that course." And: "A professor should not be annoyed with me if I receive an important call during class." Just 16 percent thought it was OK to take that phone call. But 66 percent agreed that a professor should consider effort and not just the quality of a student's work when deciding grades. And 40 percent thought they should get a B, the second highest mark, just because they did most of the reading for class. Some experts are not surprised that students often see no difference between effort and results. Social critics like to say that in children's activities these days everyone gets an award just for trying, so no one will feel rejected. Yet competition to get into the best colleges is fiercer than ever. Students may worry that low grades will keep them out of graduate school or a good job. And there may be another explanation: pressure from parents to get a good return on the family's investment. These days, college can cost more than a house.
B ． He
D ． He felt sad, doing
A former teaching assistant recently wrote to the New York Times about his experience with grade expectations. He would try to explain it this way when students asked for a top grade just for studying hard in chemistry class: What if a baseball player came to spring training and worked harder than all the others, but still could not play well? Would the team accept him anyway, just because he tried so hard? The students would say no. But most of them would still ask for an A. 28.What does the passage mainly discuss? A．Whether students deserve high marks just for trying hard. B．Whether students are allowed to answer calls in class. C．How students can get a good grade in the course. D．Why students put a lot of efforts in their studies. 29. According to the research, most of the students _______. A. thought it was all right to answer the call during class. B. thought they did most of the work for class and should get a B. C. objected to deciding grades only by the quality of a student’s work. D. agreed that they should be given top grades because of their hard work. 30. Which of the following opinions do social critics agree to about children’s activities? A．Those who are active in the activities can get an award. B．Only by playing an important role in the activities can you get an award. C．Whoever takes part in the activities can get an award. D．An award is prepared for anyone who performs best in the activities. 31. From the sixth paragraph we can learn that _____. A．it costs much more to build a college than to buy a house. B．the costs of studying at college are much more than staying at home. C．the costs of sending a child to college are much more than buying a house. D．it is difficult for parents to send a child to college. D You know eating fruit and vegetables does good. But do you know it can also make
you look good? People who increased their intake over just six weeks developed a healthy glow and appeared more attractive, researchers found. Scientists at St Andrews University found eating them slightly increased yellow and red pigments in the volunteers' skin. They monitored the food intake of 35 people and took pictures of their faces, arms and hands using a sensitive camera at the start, and after three and six weeks. Increasing their intake of greens by 2.9 portions a day was found to make the person look more healthy and an extra 3.3 portions could enhance their attractiveness, when their photographs were rated by others. Fruit and vegetables are rich in carotenoids(类胡萝卜素 )，which are known to protect against cell damage from pollution and UV rays, and can also prevent age-related diseases including heart disease and cancer. But while it was known eating extreme amounts of certain vegetables such as carrots could turn skin orange，it was not known a small increase was perceptible( 被 觉 察 ） to others—and was seen as appealing. A camera measured changes to the skin's redness, yellowness and lightness, and found it significantly changed in people who naturally increased their intake. These changes were not evident in three weeks. Using light sensors, the researchers showed these red and yellow hues were linked with the levels of carotenoids in their skin. There are hundreds of carotenoids but those thought to have the most dramatic effect are lycopene(番茄红素)—which gives tomatoes and red peppers their red colour—and beta-carotene found in carrots as well as broccoli, squash, and spinach. Skin colour is also affected by chemicals called polyphenols(多元酚)， found in apples, blueberries and cherries, which cause blood rush to the skin surface. 32. What do we know from the research? A. If you take in a little more fruit and vegetables, you will obviously look more attractive in three weeks. B. People who increased their intake of greens by 3.3 portions a day were found the most attractive after six weeks. C. Increasing your intake of greens by 2.9 portions a day can greatly improve your health.
D. The researchers took the pictures of the 35 people in the research at different stages. 33. Which of the following is NOT the function of carotenoids？ A. They can protect against cell damage from pollution and UV rays. B. They can prevent heart disease and cancer. C. They can keep you in good health. D. They can prevent age-related diseases. 34. Which of the statements is NOT TRUE according to the passage? A. We've already known eating extreme amounts of carrots can turn skin orange. B. We knew in the past that eating a few more carrots could make us look appealing. C. The research showed the improvement in skin is linked with the levels of carotenoids in it. D. Among hundreds of carotenoids, lycopene is thought to have the most dramatic effect 35. Which can be the best title of the passage? A. Eating fruit and vegetables does good. B. Eating fruit and vegetables makes you look good. C. How to become attractive？ D. Fruit and vegetables are rich in carotenoids. 第二节（共 5 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。 The Value of Tears Tears can ruin make-up, bring conversation to a stop, and give you a runny nose. They can leave you embarrassed and without energy. However, crying is a fact of life， and tears are very useful. Even when you’re not crying, they make a film over the eye’s surface. 36

the tears often disappear, Sometimes people become much stressed and can’t cry. Whatever emotion they are feeling-shock, anger, fear, or sadness is being held back. But everyone has the need to cry. Psychologist Vera Diamond explains that her treatment often consists of giving people permission to cry. 38 Patients
practice crying just to become used to express emotions. She suggests safe, private places to cry, like under the bedcovers or in the car. Crying is a way of ease tension, but people don’t like it when others cry because it makes them tense. they’ll do just about anything to make you stop. In certain situations, such as at work, tears are not appropriate. It’s good not to cry during a tense business discussion. 40 You should also act out the 39 And
whole situation again and be as noisy and angry as you like. It will help you feel better. “And,” she adds, “Once your tears have taken away the stress, you can begin to think calmly of ways to deal with the problem.” Tears are a sign of our ability to feel. If you find yourself near someone crying, deal with it. And never be afraid to cry yourself.

书面表达（25 分） Recently, two-child policy was put into effect in China，on which I made a survey among a group of students. Their views on it vary from person to person. About fifty-five percent of the students surveyed hold the view that our country is in urgent need of the new policy. The reasons are chiefly as follows. For one thing, two-child policy contributes to easing pressure from the aging population. another, it helps to relieve our burden when our parents grow old. Others are against it. In their eyes, first, it costs too much to bring up two children, which many families can not afford. Second, it will be more difficult to find a job in the future, if there are so many people in China. As far as I am concerned, I really want to have a little brother. Only in that way, can I learn to share and become less selfish.
