                                      A

                                                                Cliff House

                                                                Top of the world

                                                                Near the North Pole

                                                                Christmas, 1925

My dear boys,

    I am dreadfully busy this yearit makes my hand more shaky than ever when I think of it

and not very rich; in fact awful things have been happening, and some of the presents have

got spoilt, and I haven't got the North Polar Bear to help me, and I have had to move house just

before Christmas, so you can imagine what a state everything is in, and you will see why I have

a new address, and why I can only write one letter between you both

    It all happened like this: one very windy day last November my hood blew off and went

and stuck on the top of the North Pole. I told him not to, but the North Polar Bear climbed up to

the thin top to get it downand he did. The pole broke in the middle and fell on the roof of my

house, and the North Polar Bear fell through the hole it made into the dining room with my hood

over his nose, and all the snow fell off the roof into the house and melted and put out all the fires

and ran down into the cellars where I was collecting this year's presents, and the North Polar

Bear's leg got broken.

    He is well again now, but I was so cross with him that he says he won't try to help me again

I expect his temper is hurt, and will be mended by next Christmas.

    I send you a pi cture of the accident and of my new house on the cliffs above the North Pole

(with beautiful cellars in the cliffs).

    That's all. Good Bye

56. Why can the writer only write one letter to the two boys?

    A. His hand is more shaky than ever.

    B He is extremely busy.

    C He has got a new address.

    D. He has to help the North Polar Bear.

57Which of the following is most likely to be the picture of the accident?

58 The underlined "him'refers to

    A. the hood Bthe pole C. the hale D. the bear

                                                        B

    "Extra? ExtraGasoline hits four dollars a gallon!

    No one will really be shockedexcept, perhaps, the old-timers who tell about the good

old days when gas was three gallons for a dollar, and people drove around "just for the fun of it".

As a matter of fact; the price of gas has been rising fast and steadily for several years, and many

adjustments have already been made.

    There was, for a time, considerable unemployment in the auto industry, and three quarters

of the garages and service stations have gone out of business. However; the bicycle and

motor-scooter business has flourished(兴旺); and many people have found employment there:

Now that Federal Motors has brought out its new Lilliput, which travels forty miles on a gallon,

the auto business is picking up again. The factories that haven't switched over to two-wheel

transportation are working on their new smaller models. There is talk, too, about bringing out

new steam and electric automobiles that will be just as economical as the old cars.

    In the meantime, streetcars are gradually replacing buses all over the country because of the

greater economy of electric power. And many people who have seldom used public

transportation are now riding the streetcars while their automobiles rust(生锈)in their garages.

There's no market at all for their big, luxurious cars, for only the wealthy can now afford to

operate them. Many people are now shopping in their own neighborhood, and small businesses

are thriving.

    Ministers, educators, and editorial writers are pointing out that there has been a great

improvement in family life. Families now stay at home more for their fun, and children and

parents are becoming better acquainted. The stores report a booming business in parlor games,

hobby materials, books, musical instruments and albums.

    People have lost their pale indoor look. The revival of the lost art of walking has brought a

healthy pink back to many a cheek. This return to the heels has revolutionized the clothi ng styles;

people now need to be ready for all kinds of weather:

    These conditions, however, may not last. Already our clever chemists are at work on new

synthetic fuels which, they say, will put us right back where we wereon wheels. Shall w e

wish them success or not?

59. Which of the following is NOT a result of the gas price rising?

    A. More people prefer to travel on public transportation which costs less than driving cars.

    B. People return to the traditional exercise of walking, which helps them to look healthier.

    C. People shop in nearby stores without having to drive, so small businesses are declining.

    D. The auto industry has been forced to develop new models which are more economical.

60. The purpose of writing this passage is_.

    A. to show the chain reaction of the rising gas price

    B. to discuss whether it's necessary to work on new fuels

    C. to warn people not to use too much gasoline

    D. to picture what life will be like if gas runs out

61What is the best title for this passage?

    A. New fuels on the way

    B. Cars or bicycles, that is a question

    C. End of the good old days

    D. From wheels to heels

                                                    C

    A new study links heavy air pollution from coal burning to shorter lives in northern China.

Researchers estimate that the half-billion people alive there in the 1990s will live an average of 5

years less than their southern counterparts because they breathed dirtier air.

    China itself made the comparison possible: for decades, a now-discontinued government

policy provided free coal for heating, but only in the colder north. Researchers found significant

differences in both particulate pollution of the air and life expectancy in the two regions.

    While previous studies have found that pollution affects human health, "the deeper and

ultimately more important question is the impact on life expectancy," said one of the researchers,

Michael Greenstone, a professor of environmental economics at Massachusetts Institute of

Technology.

"This study provides a unique setting to answer the life expectancy question because the

(heating) policy dramatically changes pollution concentrations(含量),,,Greenstone said in an

email. "Further, due to the low rates of migration in China in this period, we can know people's

exposure over long time periods," he said.

    The policy gave free coal for fuel boilers to heat homes and offices to cities north of the

Huai Rivwhich divides China into north and south. It was in effect for much of the 1950-198,0

period of central planning, and, though discontinued after 1980, it has left a legacy(遗留Pl

in the north of heavy coal burning, which releases particulate pollutants into the air that can

harm human health. Researchers found no other government policies that treated China's north

differently from the south.

    The researchers collected data for 90 cities, from 1981 to 2000, on the annual daily average

concentration of total suspended(悬浮的)particulates. In China, those are considered to be

particulates that are 100 micrometers or less in diameter, sent out from sources including power

stations, construction sites and vehicles. Among them, PM2.5 is of especially great health

concern because it can go deep into the lungs.

    The researchers estimated the impact on life expectancies using death data from 1991-2000

They found that in the north, the concentration of particulates was 184 micrograms per cubic

meteror 55 percent higher than in the south, and life expectancies were 5.5 years lower on

average across all age ranges.

62. The main idea of this passage is that_·

    A. research in China finds air pollution shortened life expectancy

    B the government provided free coal for heating in North China

    C coal burning causes bad air quality across China

    D. a new study finds different particulates in South China

63According to Greenstone,_greatly contributed to the high pollution

    concentrations i n North China.

    A. power stations B. construction sites

    C. the free heating policy D. gases from vehicles

64It is implied in the passage that_·

    A. coal is no longer used for heating in North China

    B air quality was comparatively better in South China

    C. southerners burned coals for heating in the 1980s

    D people preferred to live in South China after 1980

65The underlined word "particulates" most probably means_.

    A. dirty clouds B. particular smoke

    C. harmful dust D. dangerous bacteria

                                                      D

    These young m,_ enn were a different kind of prisoner from those we had seen before. They-

were brave, hostile(怀敌意的)and_1__ they would not take orders, and shouted

"Amandla!”at every opportunity. Their instinct was to confront(对抗)rather than cooperate.

The authorities did not know how to handle them, and they turned the island upside down.

During the Rivonia Trial, I remarked to a security policeman that if the government did not

reform itself, the freedom fighters who would take our placewould some-day make the

authorities miss us. That day had indeed come on Robben Island.

    In these young men we saw the angry revolutionary spirit of the times. I had had some

warning. On a visit with Winnie a few months before, she had managed to tell me through our

coded conversation that there was a rising class of discontented youths who were violent and

Africanist in beliefs. She said they were changing the nature of the struggle and that I should be

aware of them.

    The new prisoners were shocked by what they considered the inhuman conditions of the

island, and said that they could not understand how we could live in such a way. We told them

that they should have seen the island in 1964. But hey were almost as sceptical of us as they

were of the authorities. They chose to ignore our calls for discipline and thought our advice

weak and unassertive(不果断).

    It was obvious that they regarded us, the Rivonia Trialists⑤,as moderates⑥(温和派).

After so many years of being branded a radical(激进的)revolutionary, to be seen as a moderate

was a novel and not altogether pleasant feeling. I knew that I could react in one of two waysI

could scold them for their disrespect or I could listen to what they were saying. I chose the latter.

    '4hen some of these men, such as Strini Moodley of the South African Students'

Organization and Saths Cooper of the Black People's Convention, came into our section, I

   __2____

    Shortly after their arrival on the island, the commanding officer came and asked me as a

favour to address the young men. He wanted me to tell them to behave themselves, to recognize

the fact that they were in prison and to accept the discipline of prison lifeI told him that I was

not prepared to do that. Under the circumstances, they would have regarded me as a follower of

the authorities.

            (-adapted from "Long walk to freedom: The autobiography of Nelson Mandela')

66Which of the following words fits best in Blank 1

    A. mild Baggressive C. friendly D. optimistic

67·We may infer from the passage all of the following EXCEPT that_

    A. an angry massive revolution was probably on its way

    B the author's activities were strictly monitored

    C many were concerned about the influence these young men could make

    D. these young men were willing to cooperate in face of difficulties

68. Sentences are missing in Blank 2 regarding the author's following reactions. Which of the

    following reactions do you think he would have?

    A. "I" asked them to tell us about their movement and beliefs.

B"I" reported to the officers about their dissatisfaction.

    C. "I" tried to calm them down and talked them into behaving.

    D. "I" just turned a deaf ear to the young men.

69. Which of the following is true according to the passage?

    B Officers of the prison turned the island upside down to discipline the young men.

    C. The Rivonia Trialists felt honored to be regarded as moderates.

第四部分:任务型阅读(共,0小题;每小题1分,满分10分)

    注意:请将答案写在答题卡上相应题号的横线上。每个空格只填1个单词。

    One of the hottest buzzwords in China right now is no doubt tuhao, a sarcastic,

light-hearted term referring to rich people of little education, bad taste or lacking self-awareness.

    This is yet another example of smart Chinese Internet users applying their creativity to an

aged phrase and giving it new life and meaning. The term, which literally means "country bully",

has been around since ancient times, when it was used to refer to rich and powerful rural

landlords.

    However, the meaning of the word changed significantly when it was adapted a few years

ago by Chinese players of the wildly popular computer game "World of Warcraft" to refer to rich

players who spend big money buying powerful virtual weapons. Because they don't improve

their skills by playing, these players are considered silly, uncultured, and unprofessional.

    But that is not the end of tuhao's new life story. The renewed popularity of the term also

coincides with(同时发生)the emergence(出现)of the Chinese "nouveau riche"a

generation of businessmen and women, property owners and entrepreneurs who have rapidly

accumulated large amounts of wealth in recent years.

    Similar to the many rags-to-riches stories in human history, many Chinese billionaires who

are on the global rich list do not come from well-educated or prestigious(声望很高的)

backgrounds. Rather, they achieved financial success through powerful connections, smart

investments, and by riding out China's economic boom. Many of them don't shy away from

throwing their money around, yet we are often reminded of their lack of manners, taste and

cultural sensitivity.

    As a result, a term that was popularized in the gaming world has now also been introduced

into daily conversation.

    Trend-, young Internet users, who see themselves as the opposite of tuhaonot wealthy,

but well-educated and culturedhave further popularized the term by using it in various comic

situations. For example, the phrase "let's be friends, tuhao," became hot after it appeared in an

online joke about a conversation between a rich young man and a wise monk

`Vhen Apple released its much anticipated iPhone 5S in September, Chinese Internet users
