高一英语寒假作业（四） 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 卡上将该选项涂黑． A Before you make friends, you have to decide who you want to be your friends. Most people like to have friends who like to do the same kinds of things they do. The quickest way to make a friend is to smile. When you smile, people think you are friendly and easy to talk to. It may not be easy at first to smile, but remember most people will stay away from a scared or angry looking face, One easy way to start a conversation with someone is to say something nice about them. Think about how great you feel when someone says something nice to you. Doesn’t it make you want to keep talking to that person? Ask your new friends questions about themselves. Who’s their favorite singer, where do they live, what do they do after school are all good questions to start a conversation. Make sure you have something to add to the conversation too. Kids who show an interest in other kids and who are kind and friendly make good friends. Remember, everyone wants to be around people who like to do similar things and people who are nice to them. 1. This passage gives us some advice on____________. A. how to make friends B. what kind of person you can make friends with C. how to start a conversation] D. the importance of smile 2. Most people like to make friends with those__________. A. who smile to everyone B. who share the same interest C. who are fond of talking D. who say nice things to them 3. According to the third paragraph, most people enjoy talking to one______. A. who is always smiling B. who seems to be friendly C. who praises you D. who point out your shortcoming(缺点) B Then comes the July, and with it are examinations; but these are soon finished and with them ends the school year. Boys and girls have nearly two months holiday before them as they leave school by train and car to return home to their fathers and mothers. The summer holidays are the best part of the year for most children. The weather is usually good, so that one can spend most of one’s time playing in the garden or, if one lives in the
country, out in the woods and fields. Even if one lives in a big town. One can usually go to the park to play. The best place for a summer holiday, however, is the seaside. Some children are lucky enough to live near the sea, but for others who do not, a week or two at one of the big seaside towns is something which they will talk about for the whole of the following year. In England, it is not only the rich who can take their children to the seaside; if a factory worker or a bus driver, a street cleaner or a waiter wants to take his wife and children to South end or Margate, Blackpool or Clacton, he is usually quite able to do so. Now, what is it that children like so much about the seaside? I think it is the sand, sea and sun more than any other things. Of course, there are lots of new things to see, nice things to eat, and exciting things to do, but it is the feeling of sand under one’s feet, of salt water on one’s skin. And of the warm sun on one’s skin, and of the warm sun on one’s back that make the seaside what it is. 1. Summer holidays start _______. A. with July B. as soon as the examinations are over C. in mid----June D. in August 2. After the examinations, all the pupils leave for home -_____. A. by train only B. by car C. by bike D. by either train or car 3. The summer holidays last ______. A. as long as two months B. more than two months C. one and a half months D. a little less than two months 4. Children like the seaside so much, because they can ____. A. swim in the sea B. play with the sand C. take a sunbath D. do all of the above C As is known to us, Washington University in St. Louis became the first college in the United States to ban (禁止) selling bottled water in 2009. Since then, more than a dozen small colleges and schools have done the same. The ban isn’t because the schools don’t want students to have easy access to water. Instead, the goal is to encourage students to bring reusable bottles to save money and, more importantly, to save the environment. Many people believe that producing and using bottled water not only wastes money but also harms the environment. They say that bottled water is unnecessary because public water supplies in the U.S. are among the best in the world. These people believe that water fountains and reusable bottles with easy access to filling stations are a better choice. But the makers of bottled water argue that plastic bottles make up a small portion of the nation’s total waste. They say it’s unfair to single out (单独挑出) their product when so many other items are packaged (包装) in plastic containers, and what’s more, water is a healthy choice compared to some sodas and juices that are also sold at school. What do you think: Should sales of bottle water be banned from schools? We want to hear
your opinion. Write a 200-word response. Send it to email@example.com. Your response may be published in a future issue of Time For Kids. Please include your grade level an contact information for your parent or teacher if you want your response to be published. The deadline (截 止时间) for responding is August 31, 2012. 1. Some colleges and schools ban selling bottled water in order to A. save water C. reduce pollution .
B. encourage students to bring water from home D. keep students away from bottled water .
2. The main disadvantage of bottled water is probably that A. it is too expensive C. it’s not convenient to carry B. it is not fresh
D. Its bottle can’t be reused
3. Which of the following is TRUE according to the passage? A. Bottled water is healthier. B. Sodas and juices are of great harm. C. Students think it unfair to ban selling bottled water. D. The makers of bottled water are against banning selling bottled water. 4. The purpose of the passage is to A. ask for students’ opinions B. tell people a piece of news C. call on students to save the environment D. wish more schools to ban selling bottled water D Pets are no strangers to the White House. Many of America’s Presidents have been animal lovers. In recent times, White House pets have been tame （温顺的） dogs and cats. Long ago, however, presidential pets, like our nation itself, were wild! In 1806, President Thomas Jefferson lived in the White House. Passersby often caught sight of his pet bears. Explorers had discovered these fierce （凶猛的）bears, caught a pair of small ones, and sent them to Jefferson. While the President was excited about his bears, his enemies in Congress constantly laughed at his pets, calling the White House “The President’s Bear Garden”. By 1825, the bears were long gone from the White House scene. The building was home to President John Quincy Adams and his crocodile （鳄鱼）. The green beast actually belonged to General Lafayette, a French hero who had helped the United States win the Revolutionary War. When Lafayette asked Adams to keep the crocodile for him, the President couldn’t refuse. When President Martin Van Buren moved into the White House in 1837, he brought his tigers with him. At least, Van Buren said the tigers were his. The Sultan of Oman had sent the tigers when Van Buren was elected, so Congress argued （争辩说） that the cats belonged to the American people. A fight over the tigers continued for months. In the end, Congress sent someone to seize the tigers and put them in a zoo. Twenty years later, President James Buchanan received another valuable gift when he was in his first year in the White House. This time the King of Siam sent several elephants! Buchanan had no desire to share his building with the big creatures, so he sent them to the zoo. Buchanan did, however, keep another gift — a pair of birds. They were a fitting symbol of presidential power. 1．According to the passage, we can infer that . A．the pets the Presidents raised were all huge ones B．the pets the presidents owned were all their favorite ones. .
C．the Presidents kept the pets not only at home but in the zoo D．the Presidents’ pets were not only cared about by their families 2．How did the Presidents mentioned get their unusual pets? A．They got them in the forest. B．They bought them at the market. C．The pets were given to them by others. D．Their family members offered them the pets. 3．What similar political effect did Jefferson’s bears and Van Buren’s tigers have? A．The pets made them happy and gay. B．It took them too much time to look after them. C．It made people believe that they were animal lovers. D．It brought about dissatisfaction with them in Congress. 4.When did President James BLuchanan get elephant? A.1825 B.1826 C.1845 D.1857 第二节（共 5 小题：每小题 2 分，满分 10 分） 【题文】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。 Doctors say anger can be an extremely damaging emotion, unless you learn how to deal with it. They warn that anger can lead to heart disease, stomach problems, headaches, emotional problems and possibly cancer. ___1___ Some people express anger openly in a calm reasonable way. Others burst with anger, and scream and yell. But other people keep their anger inside. They can not or will not express it. This is called repressing anger.

My name is Li Hua. I am a student of a high school in China. I’ve recently bought a book from your website. However, some problems have arisen, which makes me upset. I am writing to complain about them. First of all, the book I ordered reached me ten days later than expected, which brought me lots of inconvenience. Worse still, when I looked through it, I found that a few pages are missing, which makes me rather disappointed. I know you are a famous book-selling website, but my experience shows that your service needs improvement. I would appreciate it if you can send me another book as soon as possible. I am looking forward to your early reply.
