第三部分:阅读理解(20小题;每小题2分,满分40)

阅读下列短文,从每篇短文后所给各题的四个选项(ABCD) 中,选出最佳选项,并在答题卡上将该项涂黑。

(A)

A few months ago, I had the responsibility of delivering some donations(捐赠物)to the local City Mission, a place where the homeless, and often the injured can find shelter from a life that has been turned upside down for them.

It was late autumn, and already the promise of winter was whispering through the open windows of the City Mission.

After putting the donations on the table, I said goodbye to the worker, and headed back through the dining area towards the door.

I was careful not to notice the people sitting at the tables, choosing to leave before feeling the guilt of my having, among so many who have nothing.

But it was not to be.

Not yet, I heard a woman’s voice say. Not till we pray(祷告) .

I was behind them when the mother bowed her head and began one of the most heartfelt prayers I have ever heard, and I stopped where I was to look over at the table. A young mother was there with her two young boys, one about three years old on her left, the other about five on her right. Both were waiting, heads bowed, eyes closed.

My heart broke as I watched and listened. She was in a leg cast (石膏模) , and scars (伤疤)covered her arms, her face and head.

One of the younger ladies working at the Mission had come to stand beside me, and she whispered, “She’s a single mom; her husband just took off one day and didn’t come back. She came here when their apartment caught fire. She was burned getting her kids out.

She started to say something else but stopped.

We were silentand the words this young mother said in our silence will always follow me, “…and thanks for the fruit on the ground, when I just can’t reach the tree.

51. Why did the author go to the local City Mission?

A. To send some things there.

B. To donate some food to the poor.

C. To take care of the homeless.

D. To find a job there as a volunteer.

52. By saying Not yet, the woman probably wanted to_____.

A. thank the author for sending the food

B. ask her children to pray before eating

C. blame those who have too much

D. pray for the happiness of her children

53. Why did the woman come to the City Mission?

A. Because her husband left her and her children.

B. Because she suffered from a serious disease.

C. Because her house caught fire suddenly.

D. Because she was out of work.

54. From the last paragraph, we can infer that the woman was_____.

A. happy to find the fallen fruit on the ground

B. regretful for not climbing the tree for the fruit

C. satisfied to pick up the fruit for her children

D. grateful very much for the help she received

(B)

Be careful about what you say around your dog. It might understand more than you think. A border collie(牧羊犬)named Rico recognizes the names of about 200 objects, say researchers in Germany. The dog also appears to learn words for new objects as easily as a 3-year-old child would. His word-learning skill is as good as that of a chimpanzee.

荆州市2011年高中二年级学年质量检测英语试题 - willy - 陈勇的教科研博客

In one experiment, the researchers took all 200 items that Rico was supposed to know and divided them randomly(随意地)into 20 sets of 10 objects each. The dog waited with one of his owners in one room, while an experimenter put a set of 10 objects into another room. Then, the owner told the dog to fetch one of the items. The dog had to go to the other room and bring the object back. In four trials, Rico got 37 out of 40 commands right. Because the dog couldn’t see anyone to get visual clues about what to bring back, the scientists concluded that he must understand the meanings of certain words.

In another experiment, the scientists took one toy that Rico had never seen before and put it in a room with seven toys whose names he already knew. The dog’s owner then told him to fetch the object, using a word Rico had never heard. In 7 out of 10 trials, Rico picked the right object, suggesting that he guessed the right answer by process of elimination. A month later, he remembered half of the new names, which further impressed the researchers.

Rico is probably smarter than the average dog, the scientists say. For one thing, he’s a border collie, a type of dog known for its mental abilities. In addition, the 9-year-old dog has been trained to bring toys back by their names since he was 9 months old.

It’s hard to know if all dogs understand at least some of the words we say. Even if they do, they can’t talk back. Still, it wouldn’t hurt to talk your dog sweetly every now and then. You might just get a big, wet kiss in return!

 

55. What does this passage mainly talk about?

A. A dog’s amazing memory.

B. A dog’s absolute faith to his owner.

C. A dog’s nature of understanding man’s order.

D. A dog’s word-understanding and learning ability.

56. The purpose of the experiment mentioned in the second paragraph is to test if _____.

A. a dog can recognize objects

B. a dog can understand certain words

C. a dog is willing to follow orders

D. a dog is as clever as a chimpanzee

57. When Rico got the right answer by elimination, he _____.

A. removed all those that were wrong

B. compared their shapes

C. made the choice(选择)by memory

D. got the answer by luck

58. In the last paragraph, the writer intended to tell us that _____.

A. dogs can’t understand all the words we say

B. dogs can’t talk back to their owners

C. when treated unfairly dogs can fight back

D. treating your dogs kindly will pay off

(C)

The real key to being a great time manager is putting everything on paper in a way that’s easy to understand. When used correctly, schedules, planners and calendars help you make you feel as if you have more hours in a day.

For a daily schedule, take a sheet of paper and divide it into half-hour blocks that add up to your available(可利用的)hours. Label(标明)each section with the half hour it represents, like 5p.m., 5:30p.m., and so on. Then start filling in the time block for the things you need to do, beginning with the things that happen at the same time each day. Once all your have tos are filled in, you can look for open block for your want tos.

A weekly planner shows you the entire week on one or two pages. Under the day and date, there should be lines representing each hour, so you can write in what you need to complete in a certain hour of a certain day. For example, if you know that soccer practice is on Tuesday at 5p.m., write soccer practice on the line labeled 5p.m.. If this means that you won’t have enough time on Tuesday to study for Wednesday’s math test, then write in your studying time for Monday night instead.

Monthly calendars also give you a general idea of your time, and are great for marking down the deadlines of big projects. For example, if a midterm project like an oral report in history class takes place on May 1, circle and label that day on the calendar page, or use a big sticker(标签)so you can’t miss it. For labeling, write why the date is important.

Weekly planners and monthly calendars also help you chop the time it takes you to complete big projects into smaller amounts of time. Plus, they let you make a map of your progress on long-term goals.

 

59. When making a daily schedule, you need to _____.

A. arrange what you must do at first

B. consider how many things you want to do

C. divide your spare time into many 30-minute parts

D. make a plan to do the same thing each day

60. For a daily schedule, if you have 5 hours, how many blocks will you need?

A. 1.        B. 5.       C. 10.      D. 15.

61. How does the author show the advantage of a weekly planner?

A. By designing a timetable.

B. By giving an example.

C. By telling you what to do each day.

D. By arranging the time for you.

62. According to the passage, both weekly planners and monthly calendars can help you _____.

A. turn a big project into a smaller one

B. realize how important big projects are

C. record the progress of your learning

D. remember history dates in history classes

(D)

WASHINGTON Wal-Mart, the nation’s largest retailer, will announce a five-year plan on Thursday to make thousands of its packaged(包装)foods lower in unhealthy salts, fats and sugars, and to drop prices on fruits and vegetables.

The idea came out of discussions the company has been having with Michelle Obama, the first lady, who has made healthy eating and reducing childhood obesity the centerpiece of her agenda(议事日程) . Sam Kass, Mrs. Obama’s top adviser, says it is the first time Mrs. Obama has thrown her support behind the work of a single company. 荆州市2011年高中二年级学年质量检测英语试题 - willy - 陈勇的教科研博客

The plan sets specific targets for lowering sodium, trans fats and sugars in a broad range of foods including rice, soups, canned beans, salad dressings(调味品)and snacks like potato chips.

In addition, Wal-Mart will work to reduce any extra cost to customers for healthy foods made with whole grains, said Leslie Dach, Wal-Mart’s executive vice president. By lowering prices on fresh fruits and vegetables, Wal-Mart says it will cut into its own profits but hopes to make up for(补偿)it in sales volume. This is not about asking the farmers to accept less for their crops, he said.

The changes will be introduced slowly, over a period of five years, to give the company time to overcome technical difficulties and to give consumers time to adjust to foods’ new taste, Mr. Dach said. “It doesn’t do you any good to have healthy food if people don’t eat it.

Because Wal-Mart sells more groceries than any other company in the country, and it is such a large purchaser of foods produced by national suppliers, nutrition experts say the changes could have a big impact on the health of American families and children. Some say the company has almost as much power as federal regulators(监管官员)to shape the marketplace. Mr. Kass said Mrs. Obama would push the company to hold itself responsible by issuing public progress reports. But Wal-Mart is pushing only so far. The company’s proposed sugar reductions are much less aggressive than they could be, Mr. Kass said, pointing out that Wal-Mart is not proposing to deal with the problem of added sugars in soft drinks, which experts regard as a major cause to childhood obesity. And he said it would be nice if Wal-Mart’s timeline were speedier than five years.

 

63. According to Wal-Mart, the extra cost for producing healthy food will _____.

A. be filled up by increasing sales

B. be paid by Obama government

C. be put onto the farmers

D. be taken up by the consumers

64. According to Wal-Mart, the introduction of healthy food will be very slow because_____.

A. it makes little money for the company

B. consumers needs time to accept the new taste

C. much traditional foods needs to be sold out first

D. its high price may drive people away

65. We can infer that Mrs. Obama chose to support Wal-Mart mainly because _____.

A. its big influence in the market

B. its advanced technical level

C. its good reputation in product quality

D. its enthusiastic effort in pushing healthy food

66. What is the best possible title for the passage?

A. First Lady’s Joint Effort in Eating Healthy Food

B. Moves to a Healthier Life

C. Healthy Food, Sooner or Later?

D. Wal-Mart Moves to Healthier Food

(E)

What day follows the day before yesterday if two days from now will be Sunday? The problem is even confusing to lots of college students. Their difficulty has nothing to do with weaknesses in reading, writing or computing. It reflects, instead, something even more basic a failure to think clearly.

Last week about 50 representatives of such subjects as computer science, mathematics, philosophy, physics and psychology met in Amherst, Mass., to think about thinking: how human beings do it, and whether or not it is possible to teach people to do it.

John Lochhead, director of the Cognitive(认知的)Development Program at the University of Massachusetts, believes that thinking, like athletics, can indeed be taught. He and his colleagues who share his optimism are running how-to-think courses at lots of colleges across the country. They believe they are leading with a new subject, cognitive science, that could some day revolutionize education and perhaps even improve the general level of human intelligence.

Supporters of cognitive science, Dr. Lochhead said, are engaged in a renaissance(文艺复兴)of the 19th-century belief that education can improve the functioning of the mind through training. The way to do this, it is argued, is to find out how good problem-solvers think and to teach students to do in the same way.

Once they’ve learned how expert thinkers think, how do scientists teach what they’ve learned to beginners? Certainly not by lecturing. “During a lecture,” said Robert E. Sparks of Washington University in St. Louis, “the only mind working at reasonable efficiency is that of the lecturer.” That is why cognitive scientists require students to take an active part in learning how to think. “The origins of this ‘new’ view are quite old,” Dr. Lochhead observed, and he quoted Galileo: “You cannot teach a man anything; you can only help him to find it within himself.

When several participants(参会代表)reported evidences that students who take thinking courses do better in other classes, some participants said they were making a conclusion too early and attempts to teach thinking should wait for more knowledge about cognition. However, believers were not greatly worried about the lack of a solid theoretical support for their teaching; if it works, that’s all that matters.

For some students, it does seem to work. Said one student after taking part in Dr. Lochhead’s Cognitive Development Program,I feel smarter.

 

67. The purpose of the meeting in Amherst is to discuss about _____.

A. the possibility of teaching people to think

B. the ways of improving teaching efficiency

C. the supporting theory of cognitive science

D. the effective ways of teaching subjects as math

68. John Lochhead believes his training course can _____.

A. improve students’ intelligence

B. improve the teachers’ efficiency

C. teach students to read efficiently

D. find out how good learners learn

69. The underlined part this new’ view in Para. 4 refers to _____.

A. learning by doing                  B. teaching to think 

C. cognitive science                  D. teaching by lecturing

70. We can conclude that during the meeting_____.

A. participants reached an agreement

B. all but one participants support the theory

C. participants failed to draw a clear conclusion

D. supporters worried about its lack of theoretical basis

(One possible version)

It’s well known that the world is full of difficulties. When we are faced with them, nothing is more important than hope and self-confidence. With confidence, right assessment of the difficulties, as well as full preparation, we will overcome all the problems and challenges.

Take my latest English contest as an example. I was eager to win the contest but I was not that confident. It was my teacher who inspired me with confidence. She also gave me some valuable advice on how to make an impressive English speech. Following her advice, I took every chance to improve my spoken English, for example, listening to and watching English programmes and going to English Corner to talk with foreign teachers. Besides, I read a great many English newspapers and magazines to broaden my mind. What’s more, I tried to write articles on certain topics and pretended to be making the speech to audience. In the end, I won the first prize for the contest.

So in my opinion, we youngsters should have faith in ourselves when we are faced with hard tasks. Only if we build up confidence in ourselves, will we overcome the difficulties.

M: It’s raining heavily.

W: Yeah. I wanted to take you to see the park but it’s too wet for that. And it’s obvious we can’t walk around to visit the sights that you’ve suggested, Jack. 

M: It doesn’t matter. Let’s stay home and watch TV. 

(Text 2) 

M: Do you know why I love Sundays?

W: Sure. You don’t need to work today.

M: That’s true, but also, there are sports on TV all day.

(Text 3) 

W: What time is the next train to Washington? 

M: That’s 9:30 on Track 4. 

W: When does it get there?

M: It’s scheduled to arrive at 10:50. 

 (Text 4) 

W: Will you please post this letter for me this afternoon? 

M: Is there anyone else who can do it? It’s going to take me an afternoon to prepare this report. 

 (Text 5) 

W: If Lisa doesn’t return my car in 15 minutes’ time, I’m afraid we’re going to be late for the baseball game.

M: Would you like me to get a taxi for you?

 (Text 6)

W: Good morning, Mr Rumplefish. How are you doing today?

M: I can’t sleep. The headache is driving me crazy. I woke up so often last night.

W: Let’s move your position a little. In fact, let’s get you out of bed and take you for a little walk. You need some fresh air.

M: It’s tough getting old, young lady.

W: I’m sure it is, sir. But the doctor says you’re making good progress. I noticed that you’ve eaten a bit of your breakfast. 

M: I really need to get out and get some fresh air. Will you help me out of bed?

(Text 7) 

M: Hi, Jean. Are you doing some shopping or something?

W: Oh, I’m just having a wander around, you know. There’s not much you can do with all this rain, is there?

M: Oh, I know. It’s awful.

W: Yeah, I’m really fed up with it! It rained all day yesterday. We couldn’t do anything. I came here to get some sun. You know, lie on the beach and take it easy, not sit around all day inside. I could have done that at home in England.

M: Yeah. Anyway, listen, I’ve got to go. My wife’s waiting for me in the car. We’re actually going to the market now.

(Text 8)

M: Can I help you?

W: Yes. I’m going on a tour in New York.

M: Well, let me see ... it’s two nights in the hotel, but three days altogether.

W: I see. I arrive early on the third and leave at 10:30 p.m. on the fifth.

M: That’s great. As you see, you should be booked through to Chicago on the fifth. So it really is a full day on the fifth. Plenty of time for shopping and sightseeing. You’11 even have enough time for a show in the evening because the train station is near the theatre.

W: I think that’ll work out fine. I hope I’ll be able to sleep on the train.

M: Believe me, it’ll be an interesting experience to ride on the train.

 (Text 9) 

M: Did you see the picture of the guy on the front page of the newspaper this morning?

W: No. I haven’t had a chance to read the paper yet. What’s it about?

M: Well, this guy fell asleep on the sofa and when he woke up, half his face had been bitten off!

W: What? How did that happen?

M: They think his dog was trying to wake him up and couldn’t, so ended up biting him in the face.

W: Wow. What does his face look like now?

M: It looks pretty frightening. He doesn’t have any lips, so all you can see are the bones and teeth. Most of his nose and his one cheek are missing too.

W: What’s he going to do now?

M: It’s said that he’s going to get a face operation, but until then, he’s looking forward to Halloween, so he isn’t the only one wearing a mask.
