Only the sound of the big freezer broke the quiet. He’d dreamt of the cave last night. The purring (轻微颤动声) of the freezer had been the sea. Tim pulled on a sweater and put some apples into his schoolbag. It was too early for breakfast. He’d eat after he’d been through the cave, sitting on the rocks and staring at the sea. He wished he had a proper pack. His schoolbag would have to do. What else? Sandwiches-but his mother might wake up if he started pulling out bread for sandwiches, she' d want to know why he had to leave so early. He settled for some biscuits, and left a note stuck to the table: Gone to Michael’s. Back tonight, Tim. The sky was high and soft and light outside, though the sun still wasn't up. Even the highway up the hill was quiet as he made his way down the street. The wind from the sea was fresh and sweet. The sand hills still breathed heat from yesterday’s sun, though the top of the sand was cool. He
ran down to the beach impatiently, but there was no one, just dry sand dancing in the early wind and seabirds marching up and down watching the waves. The light changed suddenly. The first rays of sunlight stretched across the sea. The sun was pushing its way over the edge of the world. Over the first rocks, along to the point, Tim glanced back. The beach was still empty. The sun sailed higher in the sky. He could see the cave now, even darker in the morning light. The sand turned silver then dark gold as the water flowed away from it. He had to force himself to go closer. Why was it so much more mysterious now? But it would be silly to go back now after so much trouble. He needn't go in all the way... 21. What did Tim do at the beginning of the story? A. He put a sweater in his schoolbag. B. He had breakfast at home. C. He left a note on the freezer. D. He left the house quietly. 22. What made it possible for Tim to see the entry to the cave? A. The height of the first rocks. B. The change in the position of the sun. C. The ups and downs of the waves. D. The vast stretch of the sunlit beach. 23. Which of the following statements is TRUE according to the story? A. Tim was the only person on the beach. B. Seabirds flew away when Tim arrived. C. The sea looked like a piece of gold. D. The sky got dark as Tim reached the cave. 24. In the story, Tim’s mood changed from_________. A. loneliness to craziness B. anxiousness to excitement C. eagerness to nervousness D. helplessness to happiness B SIGN YOUR CHILD UP FOR “FLY TO THE MOON CLUB" AND ENJOY A FREE FLIGHT TO ANY DESTINATION IN ASIA!

C Which comes first，happiness or money? Are richer people happier? And if so，how do people get much richer? A recent study could tell you the answer. The study looked into thousands of teenagers and found that those who felt better about life as young adults tended to have higher incomes by the time they turned 29.Those who were happiest earned an average of $8,000 more than those who were the most depressed. The researchers, from University College London and the University of Warwick，say that very gloomy teens，no matter how tall or smart they were，earned 10% less than their peers, while the happier ones earned up to 30% more. Happier teenagers have an easier time getting through school，college and the job interview， chiefly because they always feel better about life. It may also be true that happier people find it easier to make friends, who are often the key to homework help or networking. A report in June suggested that professional respect was more important than dollars in terms of workplace happiness. In August scientists announced that they had found the gene for happiness in women, Alas (the same gene doesn’t appear to have the same effect on men). And in October researchers in the UK and in the US announced that people who eat seven portions of fruit and vegetables a day report being the happiest. The big question is: if it is really true that happier kids end up being wealthier kids，is it necessary for parents to get their kids to do the homework? The fact is that no homework will make kids happy but surely hurt their grades. Studies do show, after all, that more education leads to better?paid jobs, which may give us a deep thought. “These findings show that the teenagers’ happiness is important to their future success, ” one of the report’s authors writes. “But what is the most important is that we should find a way to help children gain more satisfaction from doing schoolwork.” 28. What conclusion can the researchers draw from the recent study? A. Happy teenagers grow up to be wealthier.
B. Money can make people become happier. C. Wealth has nothing to do with happiness at all. D. Schoolwork can help teens achieve success. 29. The main reason why happier people have more chances to succeed is that . A. they are easy to communicate with others B. they are good at doing their schoolwork C. they are hopeful and optimistic about their life D. they eat much more fruit and vegetables a day 30. The underlined word “gloomy” in Paragraph 3 probably means “________”． A. upset B. glorious C. happy D. wealthy 31. What can be the best title for the text? A. The way to educate kids. B. The source of happiness. C. How to achieve your goal. D. The secret of being wealthier. D Thirty-two people watched Kitty Genovese being killed right beneath their windows. She was their neighbor. Yet none of the 32 helped her. Not one even called the police. Was this in gunman cruelty? Was it lack of feeling about one’s fellow man? Not so, say scientists John Barley and Bib Fatane. These men went beyond the headlines to seek the reasons why people didn’t act. They found that a person has to go through two steps before he can help. First he has to notice that is an emergency. Suppose you see a middle-aged man fall to the side-walk. Is he having a heart attack? Is he in a coma from diabetes(糖尿病)? Or is he about to sleep off a drunk? Is the smoke coming into the room from a leak in the air conditioning? Is it steam pipes? Or is it really smoke from a fire? It’s not always easy to tell if you are faced with a real emergency. Second, and more important, the person faced with an emergency must feel personally responsible. He must feel that he must help, or the person won’t get the help he needs. The researchers found that a lot depends on how many people are around. They had college students in to be tested. Some came alone. Some came with one or two others. And some came in large groups. The receptionist started them off on the tests. Then she went into the next room. A curtain divided the testing room and the room into which she went. Soon the students heard a scream, the noise of file cabinets falling and a cry for help. All of this had been pre-recorded on a tape-recorder. Eight out of ten of the students taking the test alone acted to help. Of the students in pairs, only two out of ten helped. Of the students in groups, none helped. In other words, in a group, Americans often fail to act. They feel that others will act. They, themselves, needn’t. They do not feel any direct responsibility. Are people bothered by situations where people are in trouble? Yes. Scientists found that the people were emotional, they sweated, they had trembling hands. They felt the other person’s trouble. But they did not act. They were in a group. Their actions were shaped by the actions of those they were with. 32. The purpose of this passage is _____. A. to explain why people fail to act in emergencies B. to explain when people will act in emergencies C. to explain what people will do in emergencies D. to explain how people feel in emergencies 33. The researchers have conducted an experiment to prove that people will act in emergencies when ____. A. they are in pairs B. they are in groups C. they are alone D. they are with their friends
34. The main reason why people fail to act when they stay together is that _____. A. they are afraid of emergencies B. they are unwilling to get themselves involved C. others will act if they themselves hesitate D. they do not have any direct responsibility for those who need help 35. The author suggests that ____. A. we shouldn’t blame a person if he fails to act in emergencies B. a person must feel guilty if he fails to help C. people should be responsible for themselves in emergencies D. when you are in trouble, people will help you anyway 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。 A strong memory depends on the health and vitality （活力） of your brain. They say that you can’t teach an old dog new tricks, but when it comes to the brain, scientists have discovered that this old saying simply isn’t true. 36 Give your brain a workout. Memory, like muscular strength, requires you to “use it or lose it”. The more you work out your brain, the better you’ll be able to process and remember information. 37 Don’t skip the physical exercise. While mental exercise is important for brain health, that doesn’t mean you never need to break a sweat. Physical exercise helps your brain stay sharp. It increases oxygen to your brain and reduces the risk for disorders that lead to memory loss. Get enough sleep. There is a big difference between the amount of sleep you can get by on and the amount you need to function at your best. 38 Keep stress in check. Stress is one of the brain’s worst enemies. Over time, stress destroys brain cells. Studies have also linked stress to memory loss. Have a laugh. 39 That holds true for the brain and the memory, as well as the body. Unlike emotional responses, which are limited to specific areas of the brain, laughter engages multiple regions across the whole brain. 40 Just as the body needs fuel, so does the brain. You probably already know that a diet based on fruits, vegetables, whole grains, “healthy” fats and lean protein will provide lots of health benefits, but such a diet can also improve memory. For brain health, though, it’s not just what you eat—it’s also what you don’t eat. A. Eat a brain-boosting diet. B. Play games with memory. C. Laughter is the best medicine. D. But oversleeping is not good for your brain. E. Even skipping a few hours makes a difference! F. You have to shake things up from time to time! G. The human brain has an astonishing ability to adapt and change. 第三部分：英语知识运用（共两节，满分 50 分） 第一节：完形填空（共 20 小题；每小题 1.5 分，满分 30 分） 阅读下面短文，从短文后各题所给的四个选项（A、B、C 和 D）中，选出可以填入空白处的最佳选项，并 在答题卡上将该项涂黑。
