All the friends invited were a little 36 . It’s not that Ben is unsociable , or a bad cook , but it’s just that he never 37 more than he has to. So how come he was inviting us round for a meal? Had he bought something 38 for his friends? He greeted us at the door and showed us into his dinning room where a 39 table was waiting for us.“Nothing but the 40 for my friends!” said Ben. We all sat down and looked 41 at each other—what did he 42 to? Ben returned with four bowls of hot soup.“It’s a 43 of carrots , potatoes and tomatoes,” said Ben. The next 44 was also a little strange in that we didn’t quite know what it was again. It’s just 45 mixture of vegetables. As we ate we chatted and finally the 46 turned back to what we were eating.“Was there a recipe （食谱） this,” asked Marina “or did you 47 it up?” for , Ben put his fork down. “What I cooked 48 what I could find.”Marina was surprised.“But you can find anything in supermarkets these days.” “But there’s 49 choice in what you can find 50 supermarkets.” He replies. 51 that we had all finished the food , Ben decided to tell the truth. He had read recently that supermarkets usually 52 away 5 percent of their food every day. So Ben decided to look inside his local supermarket bins. There he found food that was slightly out of 53 , boxes of throw-away vegetables and fruit.

As we know, there are differences between western culture and Chinese culture. We can see differences when we pay attention to the way words are used. Let’s look at the words about animals and plants. Most expressions in Chinese about the dog, for example, “a homeless dog”, “a mad dog”, “a running dog” and “a dog catching a mouse”, have negative meanings. But in western countries, dogs are thought to be honest and good friends of humans. In English, people use the dog to describe positive actions. For example, “you are a lucky dog” means you are a lucky person. And “every dog has its day” means each person has good luck sometimes. To describe a person’s serious illness, they say “sick as a dog”. The word “dog-tired” means very tired. However, Chinese love cats very much. But in western culture, “cat” is often used to describe a woman who is cruel. There are many other examples of how “cat” is used differently as well. The rose is regarded as a symbol of love in both China and some western countries. People think the rose stands for love, peace, courage and friendship. And the rose is the national flower of England, America and many other countries. The words about plants and animals are used in positive or negative ways in different cultures. We can learn about many differences in cultures by comparing how some words are used. 56. “Every dog has its day.” means “_______”. A. Everybody in the world is lucky. B. Each person lives his own way of life. C. If one works hard, he’s sure to succeed. D. Everybody has a time in life to be lucky. 57. Western people usually use “cat” to refer to “_______”. A. a tired person B. a brave man C. a homeless person D. an unkind woman 58. Which of the following is true according to the passage? A. Words show differences in culture.
B. Chinese people prefer dogs to cats. C. Western people think cats to be good friends. D. Rose is the national flower of all western countries. 59. What’s the best title for the passage？ A. Negative and Positive words B. Different Countries Have Different Culture C. Rose Means the Same In Chinese and English D. What Dog and Cat Mean in English and Chinese B. Children are losing the ability to play properly because they are being given too many toys and games, according to new research. The studies show that children, especially those under five, are often overwhelmed(被压倒) and actually play less than those with fewer toys. It may even harm their development. The studies show that giving children too many toys or toys of the wrong type can actually be doing them harm. They get overwhelmed and cannot concentrate on anything long enough to learn from it. The conclusions have been backed up by British research looking at children with relatively fewer toys, whose parents spend more time reading, singing or playing with them. It showed such children surpass(胜过) youngsters from richer backgrounds, even those who could use computers. Some parents notice the ill effect early. Orhan Ismail, a researcher saw a change for the worse in Cameron, his 10-month-old son, after he was given a lot of toys last Christmas. Ismail said, “ If there are too many toys in front of him, he will just keep flitting around them and then end up going off and finding something like a slipper to play with. Now we just get out one or two toys and hide the rest in a box.” Alexander and her husband also decided to limit the toys their 6 daughters play with. She believed many toys restrict children’s imaginations. She said, “ A Barbie can only work as a Barbie. But a cardboard box can become anything. The only limitations are in the child’s mind.” Experts hesitate to put a figure on the number of toys children should have, but many believe two dozen is enough for children of preschool age. 60. From which paragraph we can learn that “British research group has been in favour of the conclusion”? A. Paragraph 3. B. Paragraph 4. C. Paragraph 5. D. Paragraph 6. 61. In the writer’s opinion, a Barbie _____. A. can attract more attention from children than a cardboard box B. can work more than a Barbie C. may become anything else such as a cardboard D. may keep children from further imaginations 62. Which of the following is TRUE about toys given to children? A. too many toys will help children develop wide interests. B. One or two toys at a time will help children concentrate. C. Only wrong types of toys do harm to children. D. The proper number of toys given to the children depends on their ages. 63. It may NOT be a good idea to ____. A. spend more time reading or playing with children B. choose right types of toys for children
C. ask experts for the exact number of necessary toys D. put out one or two toys and hide the rest C． To get an extra 14 years of life, don't smoke, eat lots of fruits and vegetables, exercise regularly and drink alcohol in a proper amount．That is according to a study published this Monday in the Public Library of Science Medicine Journal． After tracking more than 20,000 people aged 45 to 79 years in the United Kingdom from about 1993 to 2007, Kay-Tee Khaw of the University of Cambridge and his colleagues found that people who adopted these four healthy habits lived all average of 14 years longer than those who didn't． “We've known for a long time that these behaviors are good things to do, but we've not seen this benefit before, ”said Susan Jebb, head of Nutrition and Health at Britain's Medical Research Council．“The benefit was also seen regardless of whether or not people were fat and what social class they came from．” Study participants scored a point each for not smoking, regular physical activity, eating five servings of fruits and vegetables a day and moderate alcohol intake． Public health experts said they hoped the study would inspire governments to introduce policies helping people to adopt these changes．But because the study only observed people rather than testing specific changes, it would be impossible to conclude that people who suddenly adopted these healthy behaviors would surely gain 14 years． “We can't say that any person could gain 14 years by doing these things, ”said Dr．Tim Armstrong, a physical activity expert at the World Health Organization．“The 14 years is an average across the population of what's theoretically possible．” “Most people know that things like a good diet matter and that smoking isn't good for them, ”Susan Jebb said．“We need to work on providing people with much more practical support to help them change．” 64．Which of the following DOESN'T belong to the four healthy habits? A. Eat five servings of fruits and vegetables every day． B. Do proper exercise in the morning every day． C. Drink alcohol in the proper amount every day． D. Have a cigarette before going to bed every day． 65．We can learn from the passage that ． A. Susan Jebb did not take part in the study． B. the study observed people as well as tested specific changes． C. there's no need for people under 45 to adopt these good habits． D. only those from first class can benefit from these healthy behaviors． 66．What can be inferred from the passage? A. All the people are well aware of the harm of their bad habits． B. People aged 45 to 70 have bad habits in the United Kingdom． C. Governments should take measures to help people change their bad habits． D. People have adopted the four healthy habits after knowing they're good． 67．What would be the best title for this passage? A. Smoking and Drinking Cuts You 14 Years B. How to Live a Much Healthier Life C. Healthy Habits May Give Extra 14 Years D. How to Make Your Life Longer Than Others
D. Ask someone what they have done to help the environment recently and they will almost certainly mention recycling．Recycling in the home is very important of course．However, being forced to recycle often means we already have more material than we need．We are dealing with the results of that over–consumption in the greenest way possible, but it would be far better if we did not need to bring so much material home in the first place． The total amount of packaging has increased by 12% between 1999 and 2005．It now makes up a third of a typical household’s waste in the UK．In many supermarkets nowadays food items are packaged twice with plastic and cardboard． Too much packaging is doing serious damage to the environment．The UK, for example, is running out of it for burying this unnecessary waste．If such packaging is burnt, it gives off greenhouse gases which go on to cause the greenhouse effect．Recycling helps, but the process itself uses energy．The solution is not to produce such items in the first place．Food waste is a serious problem, too．Too many supermarkets encourage customers to buy more than they need．However, few of them are coming round to the idea that this cannot continue, encouraging customers to reuse their plastic bags, for example． But this is not just about supermarkets．It is about all of us．We have learned to associate packaging with quality．We have learned to think that something unpackaged is of poor quality． This is especially true of food． it is also applied to a wide range of consumer products, But which often have far more packaging than necessary． There are signs of hope．As more of us recycle, we are beginning to realize just how much unnecessary materials are collected． need to face the wastefulness of our consumer culture, but We we have a mountain to climb． 68. What does the underlined phrase “over-consumption” refer to? A. Using too much packaging． B. Recycling too many wastes． C. Making more products than necessary． D. Having more material than is needed． 69. The author uses figures in Paragraph 2 to show ___________． A. the tendency of cutting household waste B. the increase of packaging recycling C. the rapid growth of supermarkets D. the fact of packaging overuse 70. According to the text, recycling ___________． A. helps control the greenhouse effect B. means burning packaging for energy C. is the solution to gas shortage D. leads to a waste of land 71. What can be inferred from Paragraph 4? A. Unpackaged products are of bad quality． B. Supermarkets care more about packaging． C. It is improper to judge quality by packaging． D. Other products are better packaged than food． E College libraries are designed primarily for research and study. To explain its use, let us choose a research topic and follow the step-by-step procedure of looking up the material for the paper. Suppose your assignment is to write a paper on a novel called “The Sun Also Rises” by American writer Hemingway. The first step is to go to the main catalog. Many small drawers on the large wooden cabinets are lined up in alphabetical order. Each of the drawers contains
hundreds of alphabetical ordered cards. These cards are printed references to all material available in the library. Title cards are cataloged by the first word of the book title, leaving out the articles like “a”, “an” and “the”. And then you get the cards for the books you need. On the upper left corner of each card is the call number. This is the numerical code that shows where the book is located in the library. The library has open and closed stacks. If your book is on the open stacks, you can go to the open-stack room, and according to the call number find it out by yourself. There are only about 30,000 books on open stacks, while most of the 800,000 books in our library are kept in closed stacks, which are accessible only to teachers and graduate students. For undergraduates like you, borrowing books from the closed stacks have to be done with the help of our librarian. In that case, you must fill out a call slip(纸条) for the book, showing the call number, author and title. You can get call slips on tables near the catalog cabinets. You show your call slip together with your library card to a librarian at the information desk. He or she will help you find the book out in the closed stacks. 72. What is the main purpose of this text? A. To present readers a brief introduction to a college library. B. To guide readers how to find books needed in a college library. C. To tell readers how to fill out a call slip in a college library. D. To show readers where to find books in a college library. 73. What letter you should look for on the title card for the book “The Old Man and the Sea” by the Hemingway? A. The letter “t”. B. The letter “h”. C. The letter “s”. D. The letter “o”. 74. How are books arranged and shelved in the library? A. By call numbers. B. By call slips of authors’ names. C. In alphabetical order. D. By the first word of book title. 75. Suppose you are an undergraduate and you want to borrow a book from the closed stacks, which is the correct order to do it? a. go to the main catalog b. show your call slip and library card c. find out the call number d. fill out a call slip e. get the cards for the books A. a-b-e-d-c B. a-e-c-d-b C. b-a-c-d-e D. b-c-a-e-d 第二卷(非选择题共 35 分) 第四部分写作(共两节，满分 35 分) I.任务型阅读(共 10 小题；每小题 1 分，满分 10 分) 认真阅读下列短文，并根据所读内容在文章后表格中的空格里填入一个最恰当的单词。 注意：每个空格只填 1 个单词。请将答案写在答题卡相应题号的横线上。 Some people believe that greed and selfishness has become the basis of modern society, and we should return to the old traditions of family and community then we will have a better life. To what extent do you agree or disagree with the above opinion? In this fast-paced world, many values are undergoing major changes. While people traditionally prioritize caring, sharing and generosity in life and work, modern people seem to be more self-absorbed and self-concerned. Modern people act selfishly to survive the harsh competition of life. They say that it is a jungle out there. To survive, you have to fight with whatever means that come handy. Obviously greedy and selfishness go perfectly well with such ideas. In a company, employees do everything they can to get better pay and higher position, even at the cost of colleagues. We are in any way
advocating any selfish conduct. It is just that people are pressured to act in a certain way due to outside influences. In spite of common practice, it is hard to conclude that modern society is built on greed and selfishness, both of which are not newly invented vocabulary. In ancient times people also did greedy and selfish things though such behaviors were more condemned then. But we can not ignore the fact that people in the past lived a relatively more isolated life and faced less pressure compared with their modern counterparts. Are we happier to share with others and be generous to them? There is no fixed answer either. Some people take great pleasure helping and giving to others while others feel happy doing the opposite. But I personally think that people should not be too selfish. Caring for others can actually encourage the development of a mutually beneficial relationship. In conclusion, modern people appear to be more self-centered than those in the past due to strong outside pressure. However, we should encourage people to know the importance of being caring and generous and to build a mutually beneficial relationship with others. Are Modern People Becoming More Selfish? Main comparisons __76__ are changing Contexts In the past people put caring, sharing and generosity in the first ____77____. Nowadays, people seem to be more ____78____about themselves. ___79___are changing too. People in the past appeared to be modest and self-effacing(谦让的). People may strive to achieve their own __80___ at the price of their coworkers. The author’s understanding ___81____ for the changes in author’s eyes The author’s ___84____towards topic Fierce __82___ and great __83___on modern people may be responsible for the changes. A relationship which can ___85___ two sides should be established.

Recently we find that quite a few students cheat in every monthly exam although our school stresses honesty in exams over and over again. Some students think lower marks make them lose faces before teachers and parents. While others think some teachers are not so strict that they can easily get chances to cheat. At the same time, a few of them say that they can’t control themselves in exams even though they didn’t intend to do so. There is no doubt that cheating is bad for our study. On the one hand, it is unfair for every one; On the other hand, it makes students become lazy in study, which may lead to a bad study atmosphere in classes.
In my opinion, students should try to finish test papers independently. Meanwhile, teachers should improve their work and leave fewer chances for the students to
