第三部分：阅读理解（共 20 小题，每题 2 分，满分 40 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 You know what it s like． You've just arrived in Toronto after a long flight, and all you really want to do is to lie down and relax in your hotel room．But first you have to make a few quick notes for tomorrow's meeting, then check your e-mails, and perhaps print out a few things．And you need
to make a few local telephone calls, and one call home to your family． And what do you usually get? Your desk is just about big enough for a cup of coffee; there's no desk lamp; the stationery （办公用品） is a couple of sheets of headed notepaper; and a pen doesn't work．Printing has to be arranged with the Reception, and when you try to use your cell phone you find that it won't work in Canada． Well, Harmony is different．Just tell us in advance what you're going to need, and we'll see that it's waiting for you when you arrive．There will be a printer in your room if you want one, and a cell phone that really works．All you have to pay for is the calls you make． We can also arrange a room for business meetings, and, using the very best employment agency, even supply a secretary to take minutes．All we ask is a few days' notice． All our-rooms are of the same high standard, and we guarantee not to increase prices in the next twelve months． But book now, because we're already filling up fast, and we'd hate 1:0 disappoint you． Harmony-the hotel you ye always wanted; but never been able to find-until now 56．The advertisement is intended for A．airline staff B．business people C．secretaries D．tourists 57．What must the guest do if he wants a secretary? A．Inform the hotel in advance． B．Tell the Reception on arrival． C．Call an employment agency． D．Put up a notice in the hotel． 58, Why is it best to book now?

wood．Sometimes a homeowner might cut down a tree in the yard and then hire a chainsaw artist to create an outdoor sculpture from the stump．So, this art owes its origins to everyday tasks and nature． The origins of chainsaw art may be humble （不起眼的）, but the practice has expanded well beyond turning a stump into a sculpture．In some ways chainsaw artists are like traditional woodcarvers．One artist said that using chainsaws was simply more practical．This person began his work as a traditional woodcarver-that is, he used hand tools to ．carve the wood into the shapes he wanted． To save time, he began using a chainsaw to remove some parts of the wooden block．This artist realized that the chainsaw not only cut down large pieces of wood quickly, but also produced a distinctive and beautiful pattern on- the: wood．These patterns would not be seen in other pieces of art．Eventually, the artist began using the chainsaw for nearly all of his carvings． However unusual it may seem, chainsaw art is here to stay．The final test of success for any type of art is the enthusiasm and acceptance of the public．The conclusion is; people love watching chainsaw artists work, and people love the sculptures they create． 60．What do we know about chainsaw artists? A．They are originally traditional lumberjacks． B. They create masterpieces in woods and forests. C. They introduce a new concept of artists to people. D. They produce their sculptures while cutting down trees. 61. Chainsaw art A. is a kind of folk art B. is hard to be spread C. focuses on modern themes D. needs time to be mastered 62. What is mainly discussed in Paragraph 4? A. The origins of the lumberjack art. B. The experiences of a chainsaw artist. C. The procedure for creating a chainsaw sculpture. D. The application of chainsaw in the lumberjack art. C It was a dangerous period for Nancy where her own fortunes were concerned. She had to rely on freelance(自由撰稿) work for six months after Quality Weekly Magazine folded. The regular salary cheque had always seemed very small, but now it- was like lost riches. She sent many articles to other magazines. Sometimes she struck it lucky and got a task. She once wrote a short article of a politician who appreciated her fair-minded approach and gave her some secret information. Her article was noticed by an editor in search of something sharp and fresh. And Nancy was getting a name for sharp comment. In this trade, she saw, you didn't need so much to be up to date with things as ahead of them, lying in wait for circumstance, ready to jump. Then one day she walked into the offices of National Daily. It had taken her article and its editor had looked kindly upon her. Having handed over a piece on the latest educational theories she'd written, she fell into conversation with a woman she had known 'before. She learned that one of the paper's regular columnists( 专栏作家) had quitted the job. So Nancy made the necessary phone call to apply for the job. And then, the phone call came. She'd have a weekly column with her photograph next to it. There'd be a salary cheque, and perhaps fame and success to follow that. She realized that the
job presented her with a wonderful opportunity. Later, when she was alone. Nancy thought that her appointment had probably been a piece of good fortune. However, she refused to allow the word '"luck". She must have got the job because she was good and experienced. What she never knew was that in fact the editor had been at the point of offering the column to another writer, Alex. When he was about to pick up the phone to call Alex, the colleague he most disliked walked into his office, and spoke with satisfaction of the possibility of closer association with this old friend of his. As soon as the colleague was out of the room, he reached for the phone, and rang Nancy. 63．Why did Nancy spend a dangerous period? A．Because freelance work was difficult to do． B．Because she reported some secret information． C．Because her regular salary cheque was too small． D．Because she lost the job in Quality Weekly Magazine． 64．Nancy thought the secret of success as a journalist was to ______． A．make positive comments B．wait and grasp the chance C．get along well with editors D．keep up with the latest information 65．In the last paragraph, the underlined part "this old friend of his" refers to ______． A．the colleague B．the editor C．Alex D．Nancy 66．What can we inter from the passage? A．The new job presented Nancy with pressure． B．Nancy got the job in National Daily by chance． C．Regular columnists are better than freelance writers． D．Working hard is the key to gaining popularity for a writer． D Running on Empty For almost a century, scientists have assumed, tiredness-or exhaustion-in athletes originates in the muscles （肌肉） ． Precise explanations have varied, but all have been based on the "Limitations Theory"．In other words, muscles tire because they hit a physical limit; they either run out of fuel or oxygen or they drown in harmful by-products （副产品） ． In the past few years, however, Timothy Noakes from the University of Cape Town． South Africa, has examined this standard theory．Tiredness, he argues, is caused not by signals springing from overtaxed muscles, but is an emotional response which begins in the brain．The fundamental nature of his new theory is that the brain paces the muscles to keep them well back from the edge of exhaustion．When the brain decides it’s time to quit, it creates unbearable muscle tiredness．This "Central Governor" theory remains controversial, but it does-explain many puzzling aspects of athletic performance． A recent discovery that Noakes calls the "lactic acid paradox" made him start researching this area seriously．Lactic acid is a by-product of exercise, and the increase of it is often mentioned as a cause of tiredness．But when research subjects exercise in certain conditions created artificially, they become tired even though lactic acid levels remain low． Nor has the oxygen content of their blood fallen too low for them to keep going．Obviously, something else was making them tire before they hit either of these physiological limits． Noakes conducted an experiment with seven cyclists．It has long been known that during exercise, the body never uses 100% of the available muscle fibres （纤维） ．The amount used varies; but in
some tasks such as this cycling test the body calls on about 30%． His team found that as tiredness set in, the electrical activity in cyclist's legs declined-even when they were making a great effort to cycle as fast as they could． To Noakes, this was strong evidence that the old theory was wrong．"The cyclists may have felt completely exhausted," he says, "but their bodies actually had considerable reserves that they could theoretically tap by using a greater amount of the resting fibres．" This, he believes; is the proof that the brain is regulating the pace of the workout to hold the well back from the point of extreme tiredness． 67, Which of the following is supported by the "Limitations Theory"? A．Tiredness is caused by signals from brain． B．Athletes feel tired when they use．up all their energy． C．The body uses 100% of the muscle fibres in exercise． D．Athletes become tired though lactic acid levels remain low． 68．Noakes has found out that . A．muscle fibres control athletes' movements B．lactic acid levels remain high in cycling test C．mental processes control the symptoms of tiredness D．different exercises use different amount of muscle fibres 69．It is likely that both theories accept that . A．lactic acid is produced in muscles during exercise B．the oxygen content in blood may rise after sports C．tiredness is a harmful by-product of exercise D．the energy in human bodies can be 70．What is Paragraph 3 mainly about? A．The description of a new test． B．The explanation of the theory． C．The puzzling evidence of a study． D．The whole process of the research． 第二节（共 5 小题；每小题 2 分，共 10 分） 根据短文内容， 从短文后的七个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。 The iPon Generation Today it is common to see people who walk about with colored wires hanging from their ears wherever they go．They move about in their personal bubbles, sometimes unaware of what's happening around them．71 Outside life is shut out．So are you one of them"? For me; walking around in my own personal bubble is perfect． 72 What's even better, wearing earphones seems to give a signal to people which says; "I'm not available for chatting at the moment j" Suppose, you're at work and about to make an incredible breakthrough? but a colleague suddenly turns up．At this precise moment, the slightest disturbance would break your concentration．73 Once again, those wires hanging from your ears would be sure to give that "Go away!" signal． 74 It's probably part of the growing up stage when they just want to ignore their whole family．While their mothers give them lectures about why they should do their ' Yes．Mum．''

It's so strange-suddenly, I don't feel like wearing my earphones anymore A．Our instruments are changing quickly． B．I also have wires hanging from my ears． C．In the home situation, teenagers love these wires． D．I don't have to deal with the noise from the environment． E．After all, I am listening to my favourite music and would rather not be disturbed． F．Listening to music through earphones is the perfect way to ignore such interruptions． G．They walk around in their own spaces, with their personal "digital noise reduction systems ． 第四部分：书面表达（共两节，满分 35 分） 第一节（15 分） 你的英国笔友 Chris 要在班级介绍中国传统文化，他发来邮件寻求你的建议。请你根据 以下提示回复邮件。 1．建议介绍北京春节期间的庙会（temple fairs） ； 2．庙会很受人们欢迎，有很多传统表演和小吃； 3．随邮件附上几张自己逛庙会的照片。 注意： 1．词数不少于 50。 2．可适当增加细节，以使行文连贯。 3．邮件的开头和结尾已写好，不计入总词数。 Dear Chris, Yours, Joe
