II 阅读(共两节，满分 50 分)
第一节 阅读理解(共 20 小题；每小题 2 分，满分 40 分) 阅读下列短文，从每题所给的 A、B、C 和 D 项中，选出最佳选项，并在答题卡上将该项 涂黑。 A If you were walking around a supermarket and saw a woman with a shaved head, a ring through her nose, a tattoo（纹身）design on her arm and she has a small child in her shopping trolley, what would your opinion be? Do you think this kind of body decoration is attractive or ugly? Different people have different ideas. The following are some examples of body decoration from around the world. In many parts of Africa, it is thought that an attractive girl should have really shinny skin. On Bali, a little island in Indonesia, they believe that a beautiful woman or handsome man must have perfectly straight, flat teeth. The Balinese believe that teeth with pointed edges make you look like an ugly wild animal. So when a girl or boy becomes a teenager, he or she is taken to a special person in their village who will file off teeth points to make them smooth and flat. There is no anesthetic（麻药）and this tooth filing is really painful. It is a kind of test. If you can stand it without screaming or crying too much, then you are thought ready to become an adult. In Myanmar, there is a small group of people who are called the “Papaung”. They believe that a woman can only be really beautiful if she has a long neck. I mean a VERY long neck. Now you might think that you are either born with a long or short neck and that there’s nothing
whatever you can do about it. But you would be wrong! At around the age of 5, a Papaung girl has heavy metal rings fitted around her neck, tightly between the chin and shoulders. Each year more rings are added and very, very slowly their weight pushes the shoulders down, in this way making the neck look longer. A Papaung woman will wear her neck rings all her life, never once taking them off. So now I’m sure you will all agree that different people have different ideas about what is beautiful. 26. What is mainly talked about in paragraph one? A. Women’s design. B. Beautiful body decoration. C. Body decoration. D. Attractive decoration. 27. What does the underlined word “trolley” mean? A. schoolbag B. luggage C. basket D. shopping cart 28. On Bali, it is believed that _________. A. a person with straight, flat teeth looks ugly B. a person with sharp teeth looks ugly C. a teenager’s teeth points must be filed off with anesthetic D. no one will scream or cry when having his teeth points filed off 29. Which of the following is NOT true? A. Many people think that a woman with a ring through nose is neither attractive nor ugly. B. Most African people think that a girl with shinny skin is beautiful. C. It is thought that a beautiful woman should have straight, flat teeth on Bali. D. Some people think it beautiful that a woman has a long neck in Myanmar. 30. What is the best title of the passage? A. Different ideas about beautiful. B. Body Decoration. C. Who is a beautiful woman? D. What is beautiful? B A few months ago as I wandered through my parents’ house, the same house I grew up in, I had a sudden, scary realization. When my parents bought the house, in 1982, they were only two years older than I am now. I tried to imagine myself in two years, ready to settle down and buy the house I’d still be living in almost 30 years later. It seemed ridiculous. On a practical level, there’s no way I could afford to buy a house anytime soon. More importantly, I wouldn’t want to. I’m not sure where I’ll be living in two years, or what kind of job I’ll have. And I don’t think I’ll be ready to settle down and stay in one place. So this is probably the generation gap that divides my friends and me from our parents. When our parents were our age, they’d gotten their education, chosen a career, and were starting to settle into responsible adult lives. My friends and I – “Generation Y” – still aren’t sure what we want to do with our lives. Whatever we end up doing, we want to make sure we’re happy doing it. We’d rather take risks first, try out different jobs, and move from one city to another until we find our favorite place. We’d rather spend our money on travel than put it in a savings account. This casual attitude toward responsibility has caused some critics to call my generation “arrogant”, “impatient”, and “overprotected”. Some of these complaints have a point. As children we were encouraged to succeed in school, but also to have fun. We grew up in a world full of
technological innovation: cell phones, the Internet, instant messaging, and video games. Our parents looked to rise vertically(垂直的)--starting at the bottom of the ladder and slowly making their way to the top, on the same track, often for the same company. That doesn’t apply to my generation. Because of that, it may take us longer than our parents to arrive at responsible, stable adulthood. But that’s not necessarily a bad thing. In our desire to find satisfaction, we will work harder, strive for ways to keep life interesting, and gain a broader set of experiences and knowledge than our parents’ generation did. By Ariel Lewiton 31. When the author walked through her parents’ house, she _______. A. was frightened that she had no idea what she wanted from life B. realized she should buy a house. C. started to think about her own life D. wondered why her parents had settled down early 32. What is the main “generation gap” between the author and her friends and their parents according to the article? A. Their attitude toward high technology. B. Their attitude towards responsibility. C. Their ways of making their way to the top. D. Their ways of gaining experience. 33. Which of the following might the author agree with? A. It’s ridiculous to call her generation “arrogant”. B. It’s better to take adult responsibility earlier. C. It involves too much effort to rise vertically. D. It’s all right to try more before settling down. 34. What can we conclude from the article? A. The author wrote this article so that others would be able to understand her generation better. B. Growing up in a hi-tech world makes “Generation Y” feel insecure about relationships. C. “Generation Y” people don’t want to grow up and love to be taken care of by their parents. D. The author is envious of her parents enjoying a big house at her age. 35. What is the main theme of the article? A. The sudden realization of growing up. B. Criticisms of the young generation. C. A comparison between lifestyles of generations. D. The factors that have changed the young generation. C Believe it or not, optical illusion(视错觉) can cut highway crashes. Japan is a case in point. It has reduced car crashes on some roads by nearly 75 percent using a simple optical illusion. But stripes, called chevrons(人字形), painted on the roads make drivers think that they are driving faster than they really are, and thus drivers slow down. Now the American Automobile Association Foundation for Traffic Safety in Washington D.C. is planning to repeat Japan’s success. Starting next year, the foundation will paint chevrons and other patterns of stripes on selected roads around the country to test how well the patterns reduce highway crashes.
Too great speed plays a major role in as much as one fifth of all serious traffic accidents, according to the foundation. To help reduce those accidents, the foundation will conduct its tests in areas where speed-related risks are the greatest curves, exit slopes, traffic circles, and bridges. Some studies suggest that straight, horizontal bars(水平杆)painted across roads can initially cut the average speed of drivers in half. However, traffic often returns to full speed within months as drivers become used to seeing the painted bars. Chevrons, scientists say, not only give drivers the impression that they are driving faster than they really are but also make a lane appear to be narrower. The result is a longer lasting reduction in highway speed and the number of traffic accidents. 36. The passage mainly discusses ________. A. a new type of optical illusion B. a new pattern for painting highways C. a new way of training drivers D. a new way of highway speed control 37. On roads painted with chevrons, drivers tend to feel that ________. A. they should avoid speed-related danger B. they should slow down their speed C. they are driving in the wrong side D. they are coming near to the speed limit 38. Compared with straight, horizontal bars, what is the advantage of chevrons? A. They will have a longer effect on drivers B. They can cut road accidents in half C. They will look more attractive D. They can keep drivers awake 39. The American Automobile Association Foundation for Traffic Safety plans to ________. A. repeat the Japanese road patterns B. change the road signs across the country C. replace straight, horizontal bars with chevrons D. try out the Japanese method in certain areas 40. What does the author say about straight, horizontal bars painted across roads? A. They are suitable only on broad roads. B. They are falling out of use in the United States. C. They are ignored in a long period of time. D. They cannot be used successfully to traffic circles. D The $ 11 billion self – help industry is built on the idea that you should turn negative thoughts like “ I never do anything right” into positive ones like “I can succeed.” But was positive thinking advocate Norman Vincent Peale right? Is there power in positive thinking? Researchers in Canada just published a study in the journal Psychological Science that says trying to get people to think more positively can actually have the opposite effect: it can simply stress how unhappy they are. The study's authors, Joanne Wood and John Lee of the University of Waterloo and Elaine Perunovic of the University of New Brunswick, begin by citing older research showing that when people get feedback which they believe is too positive, they actually feel worse, not better. If you tell your stupid friend that he has the potential of an Einstein, you're just underlining his faults. In one 1990s experiment, a team including psychologist Joel Cooper of Princeton asked participants to write essays opposing funding for the disabled. When the authors were later
praised for their sympathy, they felt even worse about what they had written. In this experiment, Wood, Lee and Perunovic measured 68 students’ self-respect. The participants were then asked to write down their thoughts and feelings for four minutes. Every 15 seconds, one group of students heard a bell. When it rang, they were supposed to tell themselves, "I am lovable." Those with low self-respect didn't feel better after the forced self-affirmation(自我肯定). In fact, their moods turned significantly darker than those of members of the control group, who weren't urged to think positive thoughts. The paper provides support for newer forms of psychotherapy (心理治疗) that urge people to accept their negative thoughts and feelings rather than fight them. In the fighting, we not only often fail but can make things worse. Instead, meditation (静思) techniques can teach people to put their shortcomings into a larger, more realistic way. Call it the power of negative thinking. 41. What do we learn from the first paragraph about the self-help industry? A. It was established by Norman Vincent Peale. B. It is a highly profitable industry. C. It is based on the concept of positive thinking. D. It has provided positive results. 42. What is the finding of the Canadian researchers? A. There can be no simple treatment for psychological problems. B. The power of positive thinking is limited. C. Unhappy people cannot think positively. D. Encouraging positive thinking may do more harm than good. 43. What does the author mean by "… you're just underlining his faults" (Para. 3)? A. You are emphasizing the fact that he is not intelligent. B. You are not taking his mistakes seriously enough. C. You are trying to make him feel better about his faults. D. You are pointing out the errors he has committed. 44. It can be inferred from the experiment of Wood, Lee and Perunovic that________. A. It is important for people to continually boost their self-respect. B. Self-affirmation can bring a positive change to one's mood. C. Forcing a person to think positive thoughts may lower their self-respect. D. People with low self- respect seldom write down their true feelings. 45. What do we learn from the last paragraph? A. People can avoid making mistakes through meditation. B. Meditation may prove to be a good form of psychotherapy. C. The effects of positive thinking vary from person to person. D. Different people tend to have different ways of thinking. 第二节 信息匹配（共 5 小题；每小题 2 分，满分 10 分） 请阅读下列应用文及相关信息， 并按照要求匹配信息。 请在答题卡上将对应题号的相应 选项字母涂黑。 首先,请阅读下列书城畅销书的封面及基本信息。 A．Foreword

This book suggests that when you’re angry, just let it right out.

I thought I could get up earlier to go to school the next morning so that I could finish my homework before class. But the next morning, I was not able to get to school in time because of the traffic jam. I was punished by the teacher. It taught me a lesson.

The author tries to tell us with his example that we should never put off until tomorrow what you can do today, as you never know what would happen tomorrow. As the saying goes, “Time and tide wait for no man.” If you put off what you should do today, your tomorrow would be in a mess. What a shame it is to think of myself in the past! Many times, I put things until tomorrow. Many times, I shelved my tasks and went to bed without finishing them, just finding excuses for myself. And now, time flies. I have to face the examination! ks5u To save time is to lengthen life. From my point of view, I believe that it’s of great benefit for us to develop a good habit of cherishing time, from which we can make a sufficient preparation for tomorrow. Such a good habit will be bound to give us more confidence to make greater difference in the future. We always have time enough, if we will but use it aright. With the help of my teacher, I made a plan almost every day for my study, and even asked my best friend to supervise me. Now my perseverance pays off: gradually I can make full use of my time and keep a good balance between study and rest. Only by finishing what we should do today can we better master our study and life for tomorrow! ks5u
