第Ｉ卷 （选择题 共 70 分）
第一部分 阅读理解（共两节，满分 40 分） 第一节 （共 15 小题；每小题 2 分，满分 30 分） 阅读下列短文，从每题所给的四个选项（A、B、C 和 D）中选出最佳选项，并在答题卡上将该 项涂黑。 A When I was nine years old, I loved to go fishing with my dad. But the only thing that wasn’t very fun about it was that he could catch many fish while I couldn’t catch anything. I usually got pretty upset and kept asking him why. He always answered, “Son, if you want to catch a fish, you have to think like a fish.” I remember being even more upset then because, “I’m not a fish!” I didn’t know how to think like a fish. Besides, I reasoned, how could what I think influence what a fish does? As I got a little older I began to understand what my dad really meant. So, I read some books on fish. And I even joined the local fishing club and started attending the monthly meetings. I learned that a fish is a cold-blooded animal and therefore is very sensitive to water temperature. That is why fish prefer shallow water to deep water because the former is warmer. Besides, water is usually warmer in direct sunlight than in the shade. Yet, fish don' t have any eyelids(眼皮)and the sun hurts their eyes…The more I understood fish, the more I became effective at finding and catching them. When I grew up and entered the business world, I remember hearing my first boss say, " We all need to think like salespeople.” But it didn't completely make sense. My dad never once said, "If
you want to catch a fish you need to think like a fisherman.” What he said was, “You need to think like a fish.” Years later, with great efforts to promote long-term services to people much older and richer than me, I gradually learned what we all need is to think more like customers. It is not an easy job. I will show you how in the following chapters. 1. Why was the author upset in fishing trips when he was nine?
A. He couldn’t influence a fish as his father did. B. He could not catch a fish. C. His father did not teach him fishing. D. His father was not patient with him. 2. According to the author, fish are most likely to be found .
A. in shallow water under waterside trees C. in shallow water under sunlight 3. This passage most likely comes from
B. in deep water on cloudy days D. in deep water on sunny days . B. a millionaire’s biography D. a popular sales book B
A. a fishing guide C. a novel on childhood
Going green seems to be fad(时尚)for a lot of people these days. Whether that is good or bad, we can’t really say, but for the tow of us, going green is not a fad but a lifestyle. On April22, 2011, we decided to go green every single day for an entire year. This meant doing 365 different green things, and it also meant challenging ourselves to go green beyond easy things. Rather than recycle and reduce our energy, we had to think of 365 different green things to do and this was no easy task. With the idea of going green every single day for a year, Our Green Year started. My wife and I decided to educate people about how they could go green in their lives and hoped we could show people all the green things that could be done to help the environment. We wanted to push the message that every little bit helps. Over the course of Our Green Year, we completely changed our lifestyle. We now shop at organic(有机的)stores. We consume less meat, choosing green food. We have greatly reduced our buying we don’t need. We have given away half of what we owned through websites. Our home is kept clean by vinegar and lemon juice, with no chemical cleaners. We make our own butter, enjoying the smell of home-made fresh bread. In our home office anyone caught doing something ungreen might be punished. Our minds have been changed by Our Green Year. We are grateful for the chance to have
been able to go green and educate others. We believe that we do have the power to change things and help our planet. 4. What might be the best title for the passage? B. Protecting the Planet. D. Celebrating Our Green Year.
A. Going Green. C. Keeping Open-Minded 5.
It was difficult for the couple to live a green life for the whole year because_________. B. they didn’t know how to educate other people D. they needed to perform unusual green tasks
A. they were expected to follow the green fad C. they were unwilling to reduce their energy 6.
What did the couple do over the course of Our Green Year?
A. They tried to get out of their ungreen habits. B. They ignore others’ ungreen behavior. C. They chose better chemical cleaners. 7. What can we infer form the last paragraph? D. They sold their home-made food.
A. The government will give support to the green people. B. The couple may continue their project in the future. C. Some people disagree with the couple’s green ideas. D. Our Green Year is becoming a national campaign. C Three Chilean engineers say they have found a way to prevent determined thieves with what they claim is the world's first "unstealable bike." The design, called the Yerka, looks like an average bike, but the bottom tube of the frame can be split into two parts and wrapped around a pole. According to its creators, the frame can be taken apart and reconnected to make a lock in just 10 seconds. Once the bike's seat tube forms a lock, the only way to steal the bike would be to cut through it, destroying it in the process. The Yerka is the creation of Cristóbal Cabello, 22, Andrés Roi Eggers, 23 and Juan José Monsalve, 24. The design was first announced in November 2014, but recently, the team said they had put in their first order to produce 300 Yerkas. While an investment of $100,000 from a state enterprise fund helped the project along, they raised most of their funds on crowdfunding site Indiegogo. The start-up sold the first 100 bikes for $400 then increased the price to $500. In future it will rise to $600, according to a CNN report. While they call it the world's first unstealable bike, critics have previously said the lock could be picked or the bike easily destroyed. Thieves might also be happy simply to get the handlebars or front wheel. But the team say that if they weren't working on something as revolutionary as this, they would have their critics. They also add that the wheels have anti-theft nuts(螺母) that can only
be opened with a special key. The designers are now working on an app that will let users open up their bike using the smartphone. 8. What makes the Yerka different from an average bike?
A. Its lock can only be opened with a special key. B. It can be controlled well by a smartphone. C. It can be locked in just 10 seconds. D. It can change its frame into a lock. 9. Where did most of the investment in the Yerka come from? B. A crowdfunding website. D. The creator’s family.
A. A stat enterprise fund. C. The local government.
10. What can be inferred from the fifth paragraph? A. There is still some argument about the Yerka. B. The team worry bike wheels might be stolen. C. The lock of the Yerka won’t be destroyed. D. The Yerka is becoming more and more popular. 11. What does the underlined sentence imply? A. The team will invent more creative things. B. There are too many critics of the team. C. The team are brave to criticize themselves. D. The team don’t accept the criticism.
D It is one of the clear downsides of having friends or relatives who jet off to foreign countries. Not only is there a chance that you will have to sit through a session of boring photos displaying a holiday that you were not part of – there is also a real risk that your “loved ones” will return from their break offering a gift you really don’t want. According to a new study, most of us fear receiving a gift – brought back from abroad by those whose intentions are entirely good, but whose taste in presents is rather more lacking. A survey conducted by travel search website Skyscanner saw over two thirds of those questioned (69 per cent) admit that they would rather not receive souvenirs from other people’s holidays. Just four per cent of the 2,000 respondents said they find holiday gifts of use. The presents most likely to make us say an unconvincing thank you are ornaments, with 14 per cent of the survey’s respondents listing said items – cheap pottery statues – as the most
disappointing travel present you can receive. Also high on the name-and-shame list are comedy T-shirts (described as “most disappointing” by nine per cent), bargain jewellery (also nine per cent), key rings and fridge magnets (seven per cent) and food products and snow globes (both four per cent). Fifteen per cent find an instant new home for these undesired presents – the bin. Others stop short of immediately getting rid of their unrequested new possessions – but plenty of us also decline to put them on display. Six per cent said they share the burden by re-gifting the items to others, while three per cent are even more impolite and put the souvenirs up for sale on sites such as e-Bay. But apparently, the problem of gifts no one likes is widespread. According to figures from the World Tourism Organisation, an estimated 5 billion is wasted on unnecessary ornaments by holidaymakers in Europe every year. 12. What will happen after your “loved ones” return home from abroad? A. They probably will bring the useless presents to you. B. They may try their best to learn to improve their taste in presents. C. They will discuss the photos taken to make you part of the holiday. D. They will ask you about everything that happened during their absence. 13. Which is the least disappointing travel present? A. Cheap pottery statues. C. Key rings. B. Comedy T-shirts. D. Food products.
14. What will more people do with those undesired presents? A. Throw them away in the bin. C. Present them to other friends. B. Put them in the display case. D. Sell them on the second-hand market.
15. The main purpose of the passage is to ___________. A. inform people of the result of a new study B. encourage people to make plans before traveling C. tell people about the rules for holiday gift giving D. show the importance and future trend of gift giving 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。 Secret codes (密码)keep messages private. Banks, companies, and government agencies use secret codes in doing business, especially when information is sent by computer. People have used secret codes for thousands of years. 16 . Code breaking never
lags(落后) far behind code making. The science of creating and reading coded messages is called cryptography. There are three main types of cryptography. 17 . For example, the first letters of “My
elephant eats too many eels” Spell out the hidden message “Meet me.” 18 . You might represent each letter with a number, For example, Let’s number the
letters of the alphabet, in order, from 1 to 26. If we substitute a number for each letter, the message “Meet me” would read “13 5 20 13 5.” A code uses symbols to replace words, phrases, or sentences. To read the message of a real code, you must have a code book. 19 . For example, ”bridge“ might stand for “meet”
and “out” might stand for “me.” The message “bridge out” would actually mean “Meet me.” 20 . However, it is also hard to keep a code book secret for long. So codes must be
changed frequently. A. It is very hard to break a code without the code book. B. In any language, some letters are used more than others. C. Only people who know the keyword can read the message. D. As long as there have been codes, people have tried to break them. E. You can hide a message by having the first letters of each word spell it out. F. With a code book, you might write down words that would stand for other words. G. Another way to hide a message is to use symbols to stand for specific letters of the alphabet.

参考范文 Dear editor, Recently，a survey has been done to find out when people use Mobikes, and I’m writing to tell you the result. 39.4% of people use Mobikes between stations and their destinations as it saves time. The percentage of people using Mobikes to go bike-riding with friends is 31.2%, for it’s fun. In addition, people taking advantage of Mobikes to exercise account for 16.1% while 13.3% of people ride Mobikes mainly because they just want to try something new. As far as I’m concerned, Mobikes are really of great convenience. However, people leave them everywhere they like, which seems unorganized.
Yours faithfully, Li Hua
