第三部分：阅读理解（共 20 小题；每小题 2 分， 满分 40 分） 阅读下列短文，然后从各题所给的四个选项（A、B、C、D）中，选出最佳选项。 A Phil White has just returned from an 18,000-mile, around-the-world bicycle trip. White had two reasons for making this epic journey. First of all, he wanted to use the trip to raise money for charity which he did. He raised $70,000 for the British charity, Oxfam. White's second reason for making the trip was to break the world record and become the fastest person to cycle around the world. He is still waiting to find out if he has broken the record or not. White set off from Trafalgar Square, in London, on 19th June 2004 and was back 299 days later. He spent more than l,300 hours in the saddle（车座）and destroyed four sets of tyres and three bike chains. He had the adventure of his life crossing Europe, the Middle East, India, Asia, Australia, New Zealand and the Americas. Amazingly, he did all of this with absolutely no support team. No jeep carrying food, water and medicine. No doctor. Nothing! Just a bike and a very, very long road. The journey was lonely and desperate at times. He also had to fight his way across deserts, through jungles and over mountains. He cycled through heavy rains and temperatures of up to 45 degrees, all to help people in need. There were other dangers along the road. In Iran, he was chased by armed robbers and was lucky to escape with his life and the little money he had. The worst thing that happened to him was having to cycle into a headwind on a road that crosses the south of Australia. For 1,000 kilometres he battled against the wind that was constantly pushing him. This part of the trip was slow, hard work and depressing, but he made it in the end. Now Mr. White is back and intends to write a book about his adventures. 56 When Phil White returned from his trip, he________. A. collected some money for Oxfam B. broke the world record related C. ruined several bikes D. travelled around 1,300 hours 57. What does the word "epic" underlined in Paragraph l most probably mean________. A. slow but exciting B. lonely but exciting C. interesting but tiring D. difficult but admiring 58. During his journey around the world, Phil White _______. A. fought against robbers in Iran B. struggled against the wind in Australia C. experienced the extremes of heat and cold D. had a team of helpful people 59. Which of the following words can best describe Phil White? A. Imaginative. B. Determined . C. Modest. D. Creative.
B When Mary Moore began her high school in 1951, her mother told her, "Be sure and take a typing course so when this show business thing doesn't work out, you'll have something to rely on." Mary responded in typical teenage fashion. From that moment on, "the very last thing I ever thought about doing was taking a typing course," she recalls. The show business thing worked out, of course. In her career, Mary won many awards. Only recently, when she began to write Growing Up Again, did she regret ignoring her morn," I don't know how to use a computer," she admits. Unlike her 1995 autobiography, After All, her second book is less about life as an award-winning actress and more about living with diabetes (糖尿病). All the money from the book is intended for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF), an organization she serves as international chairman. "I felt there was a need for a book like this," she says." I didn't want to lecture, but I wanted other diabetics to know that things get better when we're self-controlled and do our part in managing the disease." But she hasn't always practiced what she teaches. In her book, she describes that awful day, almost 40 years ago, when she received two pieces of life-changing news. First, she had lost the baby she was carrying, and second, tests showed that she had diabetes. In a childlike act, she left the hospital and treated herself to a box of doughnuts (甜甜圈). Years would pass before she realized she had to grow up ---again---and take control of her diabetes, not let it control her. Only then did she kick her three-pack-a-day cigarette habit, overcome her addiction to alcohol, and begin to follow a balanced diet. Although her disease has affected her eyesight and forced her to the sidelines of the dance floor, she refuses to fall into self-pity. "Everybody on earth can ask, 'why me?' about something or other," she insists. "It doesn't do any good. No one is immune (免疫的) to heartache, pain, and disappointments. Sometimes we can make things better by helping others. I've come to realize the importance of that as I've grown up this second time. I want to speak out and be as helpful as I can be." 60. Why did Mary feel regretful? A. She didn't achieve her ambition. B. She didn't take her mother's advice. C. She didn't complete her high school. D. She didn't have a child of her own. 61.We can know that before 1995 Mary A. made it in careers B. had two books published C. had a knowledge of a computer D. supported the JDRF by writing 62. Mary's second book Growing Up Again is mainly about her . A. work for an organization B. successful show business C. experiences living with diabetes D. memories of her mother 63. When Mary received the life-changing news, she . A. behaved in a conscious way B. went on a balance diet C. was made to get a treatment D. lost control of herself for years 64. What can we know from the last paragraph? A. Mary feels depressed as before. B. Mary has recovered from her disease. C. Mary wants to be helpful to others. D. Mary decides to take up dancing.

D. Problem of losing weight. D The interview had been going on for about 20 minutes and everything seems to be going well. Then, suddenly, the interviewer asks an unexpected question, “Which is more important, law or love?” Job applicants in the west increasingly find themselves asked strange questions like this. And the signs are that this is beginning to happen in China. Employers want people skilled, enthusiastic and devoted. So these are the qualities that any reasonably intelligent job applicants will try to show no matter what his or her actual feelings are. In response, employers are increasingly using questions which try and show the applicant’s true personality. The question in the first paragraph comes from a test called Kiersey Personality Sorter. It is an attempt to discover how people solve problems, rather than what they know. This is often called competence testing. According to Mark Baldwin of Alliance many job applicants in China are finding this type of questions difficult. When a Chinese person fills out an competence test he or she will think there is a right answer and they may fail because they try to guess what the examiner wants to see. This is sometimes called the prisoner’s dilemma. Applicants are trying to act cleverly in their own interest. But they fail because they don’t understand what the interviewer is looking for. Remember that in an competence test, the correct answer is always the honest answer. 69．The writer wrote the passage to . A．advise you how to find a job B ． tell you how to meet a job interviewer C．describe the competence test. D．present a piece of advice on a job interview. 70 ． According to the writer, in a competence testing, Chinese job applicants should .
A．not tell the truth and fact interviewers think
B ． try to find out what the
C．be more enthusiastic positive D．learn to tell what they really think 71．From the passage we know that . A．competence testing is becoming popular in the worldwide B．more Chinese applicants fail to find a job C．applicants should act as unreasonably as a prisoner D．job applicants are always asked the same questions E Global Positioning Systems are now a part of everyday driving in many countries. These satellite based systems provide turn-by-turn directions to help people get to where they want to go . But, they can also cause a lot of problems, send you to the wrong place or leave you completely lost. Many times, the driver is to blame. Sometimes a GPS error is responsible. Most often , says Barry Brown, an expert in human computer inter action, it is a combination of the two. We spoke to Mr Brown by Skype (网络电话软件).He told us about an incident involving a friend who had flown to an airport in the eastern United States. There he borrowed a GPS equipped car to use during his stay .Barry Brown:“And they just put in an address and then set off to their destination. And , then it wasn’t until they were driving for thirty minutes that they realized they actually put in a destination back on the West Coast where they lived. They actually put their home address in . So again, the GPS is kind of ‘garbage in garbage out’”. Mr Brown says this a common human error. But, he says, what makes the problem worse has to do with some of the shortcomings, or failures, of GPS equipment. Barry Brown:“One problem with a lot of the GPS units is they have a very small screen and they just tell you the next turn . Because they just give you the next turn, sometimes that means that it is not really giving you the overview that you would need to know that it’s going to the wrong place.” Barry Brown once worked on a project with Eric Laurier from the University of Edinburgh. The two men studied the effects of GPS devices on driving by placing cameras in people’s cars. They wrote a paper based on their research. It is called “The Normal, Natural Troubles of Driving with GPS”. It lists several areas where GPS systems can cause confusion for drivers. These include maps that are outdated, incorrect or difficult to understand . They also include timing issues (时 机问题)related to when GPS commands are given. Barry Brown says to make GPS systems better we need a better understanding of how drivers, passengers and GPS systems work together. 72．In Paragraph 2, Mr Brown mentioned his friend in the conversation to . A．build up his own reputation B．laugh at his stupid friend C．describe an example of human error D．prove the GPS system is only garbage 73．What is the disadvantage of small screens in GPS equipment according to the text? A．They make drivers tired easily. B．They are harmful to eyes. C．They just provide the next turn. D．They often break down suddenly. 74．With which of the following statements would Barry Brown most likely agree? A．GPS units are to blame for most GPS service failures. B．Drivers, GPS systems and passengers should unite to improve GPS systems.
C．Cameras are urgently needed to help improve GPS systems. D．We should introduce higher standards for the driving license. 75．What would be the best title for the text? A．GPS equipment in driving : to be deserted or improved? B．Driving with GPS can be difficult C．Driving without GPS should be much more convenient D．Driving errors can be caused by small screens.
第二卷（共 35 分）
第四部分：写作（共两节，满分 35 分） 第一节 任务型读写（共 10 小题；每空 1 分，满分 10 分） 阅读下列短文，根据所读内容在文章后的表格中填入恰当的单词。注意：表格中的每 个空格只填 1 个单词。 Talk about happiness We should not hesitate too much during the first half of our lives, while we should not regret at what we’ve done during the other half. We should seize every opportunity to find a way out in our lives, for it goes off swiftly. We should say something urgent slowly, something serious clearly, something small humorously and something unsure cautiously. We should never say something that did not happen, something that you cannot do, something that does harm to others, and something that is disgusting. We should tell others our happiness on specific occasions and should not tell anyone our unhappiness. Do not easily say something about others. We should follow our own heart and interest, and do what we should do instead of merely paying lip service and looking forward to the future. Everyone is longing for a happy life, but owning wealth does not necessarily mean owning happiness. To truly reach happiness, we need to know how to get on with others. So we need to understand what happiness is really about and achieve what we desire. We need to know and understand happiness before we finally get it. A smart man must know to do something good even though it may be small, and not to do something bad even though it may be tiny in the course. As long as we keep a kind heart and do everything morally and legally, we can live a peaceful life. But if we keep an evil heart and do whatever we want, we are indeed digging a tomb for ourselves. A smart man knows to learn a lesson from his falls, for he knows that every setback（挫折） is a precious experience leading to happiness in the future. He tends to spend more time seeking his own happiness. He knows to keep a heart of conscience
and not to spread others’ mistakes. He also knows to think before he goes so that he will not feel regretful afterwards. Moreover, he knows to tolerate others, so he can naturally lead a happy life. Without happiness, one will feel terribly sad, for he always insists that he has done the right thing all the time and that others often do wrong to him. He blames every mistake on others or the environment instead of reflecting on himself, which keeps him farther and farther away from happiness. A famous man once said, “Nobody intends to make mistakes. One makes mistakes because of his ignorance.” Therefore, if someone makes mistakes, we need to care about him, forgive him and make him happy by setting a good example to him instead of losing temper and hating him. Otherwise, we are also ignorant like him, for we also make a stupid mistake that leads us farther from happiness. In order to possess a happy life, we need to know more about others, about society, about our culture and history. We should be patriotic(爱国的), obey the law and realize our own responsibility, and then we will certainly have a happy life.
Talk about happiness ●Do things without hesitation and never (76) ________ at anything. ●Seize every opportunity to do the things we should. ●Avoid saying or doing what we are not sure about. ●Don’t (77) ________ on others easily. ●Getting on well with others is necessary. ●Doing good things with a kind heart may make us live (79) ________. ●Precious experiences learned from every setback will (80) ________ in future happiness. ●Thinking twice before action and (81) ________ others can lead to a happy life. ●He blames everything wrong on others or the (82) ________, not himself. ●His ignorance leads to making mistakes, which keeps him farther away from (83)________ . ●Caring about the people who make mistakes instead of losing temper and set an example to them. ●Having a good knowledge of society, culture, history and others. ●Obeying the law and shouldering our own（85）_______.
