A. $42 B. $38 C. $45 D. $50 B Driving a car is not just handling controls and judging speed and distance. It requires you to predict what other road users will do and get ready to react to something unexpected , When alcohol is consumed, it enters your bloodstream and acts as a depressant （抑制药） ，damaging eyesight, judgment and co-ordination （协调） ，slowing down reaction time and greatly increasing the risk of accidents. Even below the drink driving limt , driving will be affected. Alcohol may take a few minutes to be absorbed into the bloodstream and start action on the brain. Absorption rate is increased when drinking on an empty stomach or when consuming drinks mixed with fruit juice. To get rid of alcohol from the body is a very slow process and it is not possible to speed it up with any measures like taking a shower or having a cup of tea or coffee. The present Road Traffic Ordinance states clearly that the limit of alcohol concentration is : ● 50 milligrams of alcohol per 100ml of blood ;or ● 22 micrograms of alcohol per 100ml of breath ;or ● 67 milligrams of alcohol per 100ml of urine(尿液) Drivers who cause traffic accidents, or who commit a moving traffic offence or are being suspected of drink driving will be tested. Any drive found drinking beyond the limit will be charged.The driver declared guilty may be fined a maximum of HK﹩25,000 and be sentenced to up to 3 years in prison and punished for 10 driving-offence points; or temporarily banned from driving. The same punishment applies to failing to provide specimens(样本) for breath, blood or urine tests without good excuse. Drink driving is a criminal offence. Be a responsible,driver,think before you drink. For the safety of yourself and other road users, never drive after consuming alcohol. 59.The first paragraph is mainly about_____________. A. the introduction of driving skills B. the danger of drinking to your body
C. the effect of drinking on driving D. the process of alcohol being absorbed 60.The underlined word “it” in the second paragraph refers to “________”. A. alcohol B. absorption C. blood D. process 61. Which of the following is TRUE according to the passage? A. Drinking below the drink driving limit has no effect on driving. B. Alcohol is taken in more quickly when drunk with fruit juice. C. Having a cup of tea helps to get rid of alcohol from the body. D.50 milligrams of alcohol per 100ml of breath is below the drink limit 62.A driver suspected of drink driving_________. A. should provide specimens for testing. B. will be forbidden to drive for 3 years C. will be punished for 10 driving-offence points D. should pay a maximum fine of HK＄25,000 C Ireland has had a very difficult history. The problems started in the 16th century when English rulers tried to conquer(征服) Ireland. For hundreds of years, the Irish people fought against the English. Finally , in 1921. The British government was forced to give independence to the south of Ireland. The result is that today there are two “Irelands”. Northern Ireland. In the north, is part of the United Kingdom. The republic of Ireland , In the south , Is an independent country. In the 1840s the main crop, potatoes was affected by disease and about 750,000 people died of hunger. This, and a shortage (短缺) of work , forced many people to leave Ireland and live in the USA, the UK, Australia and Canada. As a result of these problems, the population fell from 8.2 million in 1841 to 6.6 million in 1851. For many years, the majority of Irish people earned their living as farmers. Today, many people still work on the land but more and more people are moving to the cities to work in factories and offices. Life in the cities is very different from life in the countryside, where things move at a quieter and slower pace. The Irish are famous for being warm-hearted and friendly, Oscar Wilde, a famous Irish writer, once said that the Irish were “the greatest talkers since the Greeks”, Since independence, Ireland has revived(复兴) its own culture of music, language, literature and singing. Different areas have different styles of old Irish song which are sung without instruments. Other kinds of Irish music use many different instruments such as the violin, whistles, etc. 63.What does the author tell us in paragraph 1? A. how the Irish fought against the English. B. how Ireland gained independence. C. how English rulers tried to conquer Ireland. D. how two ”Irelands” came into
being. 64.We learn from the text that in Ireland_____。 A. food shortages in the 1840s led to a decline in population B. people are moving to the cities for lack of work in the countryside C. it is harder to make a living as a farmer than as a factory worker D. different kinds of old Irish songs are all sung with instruments 65. What can be the best title for the text? A. life in Ireland B. A Very difficult history C. Ireland, past and present D. the independence of Ireland D My heart sank when the man at the immigration（移民）counter gestured to the back room. I was born and raised in America, and this was Miami, where I live, but they weren’t quite ready to let me in yet. “Please wait in here, Ms. Abujaber,” the immigration officer said. My husband, with his very American last name, accompanied me. He was getting used to this. The same thing had happened recently in Canada when I’d flown to Montreal to speak at a book event. That time they held me for 45 minutes. Today we were returning from a literary festival in Jamaica, and I was shocked That I was being sent “in back” once again . The officer behind the counter called me up and said, “Miss, your name looks like the name of someone who’s on our wanted list . We’re going to have to check you out with Washington.” “How long will it take?” “Hard to say?a few minutes,” he said, “We’ll call you when we’re ready for you.” After an hour, Washington still hadn’t decided anything about me. “Isn’t this computerized?” I asked at the counter, “Can’t you just look me up?” “Just a few more minutes,” they assured me. After an hour and a half, I pulled my cell phone out to call the friends I was supposed to meet that evening. An officer rushed over. “No phones!” he said, “For all we know you could be calling a terrorist cell and giving them information.” “I’m just a university professor,” I said. My voice came out in a squeak. “Of course you are. And we take people like you out of here in leg irons every day.” I put my phone away. My husband and I were getting hungry and tired. Whole families had been brought into the waiting room, and the place was packed with excitable children, exhausted parents, and even a flight attendant. I wanted to scream, to jump on a chair and shout: “I’m an American citizen; a novelist; I probably teach English literature to your children.” After two hours in detention (扣押), I was approached by one of the officers. “You’re free to go,” he said. No explanation or apologies. For a moment, neither
of us moved. We were still in shock. Then we leaped to our feet. “Oh, one more thing,” he handed me a tattered photocopy(破烂的复印件) with an address on it, “If you aren’t happy with your treatment, you can write to this agency.” “Will they respond?” I asked. “I don’t know—I don’t know of anyone who’s ever written to them before.” Then he added,” By the way, this will probably keep happening each time you travel internationally.” “What can I do to keep it from happening again?” He smiled the empty smile we’d seen all day, “Absolutely nothing.” After telling several friends about our ordeal, probably the most frequent advice I’ve heard in response is to change my name. Twenty years ago, my own graduate school writing professor advised me to write under a pen name so that publishers wouldn’t stick me in what he called “the ethnic ghetto”—a separate, secondary shelf in the bookstore. But a name is an integral part of anyone’s personal and professional identity—just like the town you’re born in and the place where you’re raised. Like my father, I’ll keep the name, but my airport experience has given me a whole new perspective on what diversity and tolerance are supposed to mean. I had no idea that being an American would ever be this hard. 66. The author was held at the airport because ______. A. she had been held in Montreal B. she had spoken at a book event C. she and her husband returned from Jamaica D. her name was similar to a terrorist’s 67. She was not allowed to call her friends because ______. A. her identity hadn’t been confirmed yet B. she had been held for only one hour and a half C. there were other families in the waiting room D. she couldn’t use her own cell phone 68. We learn from the passage that the author would ______ to prevent similar experience from happening again. A. change her name B. do nothing C. write to the agency D. avoid traveling abroad 69. Her experiences indicate that there still exists ______ in the US. A. tolerance B. diversity（差异） C. discrimination（歧视） D. hatred 70.The author sounds ______ in the last paragraph. A. ironic (具有讽刺意味的) B. impatient C. worried D. bitter 第 II 卷：非选择题（三部分，共 35 分） 第一部分：单词拼写(共 10 小题；每小题 1 分，满分 10 分) 根据中文提示或首字母写出单词的适当形式（共 10 题；每小题 1 分，满分 10 分） 71. ______(兴建)in 1954, the high school in our village is one of the key school in our country . 72.

Your habits will decide whether you are successful or not. If you have strong and healthy positive habits, it does not matter whether or not you fail today because you will succeed in the long term. Having positive habits does not mean that you will succeed every single time. However, in the long term, there is no doubt that you will achieve all your goals and be successful. On the other hand, if you have strong negative habits, you will fail in the long term. It does not matter whether you succeed today or not. Why are habits so important? A single positive action will not change your life, but the same action repeated 1,000 times will have a great effect on your life. For example, if you go to the gym one time, you won’t see a big difference in your life. However, if your go to the gym 1,000 time over a five-year period, you will see a big difference in your body. The same principle(原则) is true of finance (金融), health, relationships, work, career, and school. Simple positive actions repeated every single day will have a great effect on your life in the long run. How to develop positive habits? There’s nothing easier than developing positive habits. You simply have to do every single day the action you want to make a habit. If you want to develop the habit of running, run almost every day. If you want to develop the habit of
reading, read every day. Habits are created by repetition(重复). The more you do an action. the easier it becomes in the long run. How to get rid of negative habits? The only way to destroy negative habits is to stop reinforcing(加强) them. If you are a smoker, stop smoking. If you are a drug user, stop using drugs. Yes, it will be very difficult at the beginning. The first week will be very hard. After three weeks, you will feel a lot better. It’s hard to get rid of negative habits because you got a lot of pleasure from these habits in the past. You can do it! Everybody can change. All it takes is courage and determination. Decide right now to improve your life by changing your habits. Take action right now! Don’t be afraid. Yes, you will probably make mistakes along the way. But never forget that success is waiting for you if you have positive habits in your life. If you refuse to give up, success will be yours. Title：Habits and success Brief introduction ● Whether you are successful or not is (81) by your habits. ● Positive habits (82) to success in the long term while having negative habits means the opposite. ● (83) your life won’t be changed by a single positive action, the same actions and behaviors repeated many times will (84) life greatly. ● (85) from finance, this principle can also be used in health, relationships, work, career, and school. ●It’s very(86) to develop positive habits. ●Habits are formed if they are(87) . Only by(88) reinforcing negative habits can we get rid of them. ●It takes(89) and determination to change. ●(90) right now, for success is waiting for you!

Now I would like to tell you something about my English extracurricular reading in senior high school. Usually I am only asked to read some newspapers. Sometimes I just read some simple English stories or magazines to relax myself. But I have never read classic English books. Do you know why？The reasons are as followed. First, since entering senior high school, I have been burdened with so much homework that my reading time is very limited. Besides, I haven’t formed a habit of reading English. Lastly, the number of the English words I have mastered is less than 3000. I think the classic English books are too difficult to understand and so I even haven’t had a try. However, reading is important for our English learning. It can not only enlarge our English vocabulary but show us a colorful world. Especially it helps us to think better in English and learn English better. So I decide to read English widely, ranging from simple English stories to classic English books. Best wishes!
Yours, Zhang Yong
