第二部分 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） A Agatha Christie used to go out at night. She will never forget the night when she met a robber many years ago. That evening, she was invited to a birthday party which lasted till 2 o'clock in the morning. Without company, Agatha walked home along the quiet street. Suddenly from the shadow of a dark building, a tall man with a sharp knife in his right hand ran out at her. “Good morning, lady,” the man said in a low voice, “I don't think you wish to die here!”“What do you want?” Agatha asked. “Your earrings (耳环). Take them off!”Agatha suddenly had a bright idea. She tried to cover her necklace with the collar (衣领) of her overcoat while she used the other hand to take off both of her earrings, and then she quickly threw them on the ground. “Take them and let me go.” she said. The robber was uncertain. He saw that the girl didn't care for the earrings at all, only trying to protect the necklace. He realized the necklace would cost more, so he said, “Give me your necklace.” “Oh, sir. It's not worth much. Please let me keep it.” “Stop talking rubbish. Quick!” With shaky hands, Agatha took off her necklace. As soon as the robber disappeared, she
picked up her earrings and ran as fast as she could to her home. The earrings cost 480 pounds and the necklace the robber had taken away cost only six pounds ten shillings (先令). 21. Agatha will never forget the night because ________. A. she was robbed of her earrings B. she was robbed but she fooled the robber C. she had such a nice time at the party D. it is dangerous for a girl to walk alone at night 22. Why did she try to protect her necklace? ________. A. She didn?t want the robber to notice it. B. It was cheaper than the earrings. C. It was worth keeping. D. She would rather have it robbed. 23. The story wants to tell us ________. A. Agatha was brave and clever B. the robber was foolish C. a necklace is usually more expensive than earrings D. never stay too late at an evening party B It?s not Christmas Day yet. But wherever I go on the streets, I see shops selling Christmas trees and all kinds of beautiful decorations, waiters wearing Christmas hats; I hear children singing Christmas songs on broadcast; I get messages of Christmas?s best wishes from friends. I just got quite confused again, since when have Chinese begun celebrating Christmas Day? What do these people celebrate it for, the birth of Chris? But we all know that most of Chinese are not Christians, they don?t even know the origin of Christmas Day, and they celebrate it for no reason. I don?t celebrate Christmas Day or any other western holidays since I?m not a Christian and nor am I a westerner. I don?t know what Christmas really means. Anyway I can?t get reasonable answers from my friends. Some of them think they would like to just take this chance to enjoy themselves regardless of the meaning of the festival. Some of them think I?m an old-fashioned girl,
a bigot who doesn?t appreciate the spirit of Chinese cultural tolerance(宽容) and understanding of other cultures. Well, if it is about cultural tolerance, why don?t we ever celebrate the month of Muharram, or festivals of colours in India, or Fiestas Patrias in Mexico? I really appreciate cultural exchanges and communications with all nations, but I don?t think this is what it?s about. People are celebrating more and more western festivals while ignoring our traditional ones. Is it part of globalization(全球化)？ Do people in other non-western countries also celebrate Christmas?
24. It can be inferred from the passage that the writer _________. A. is an old-fashioned girl B. doesn?t like festivals at all C. prefers western festivals to Chinese festivals D. prefers Chinese festivals to western festivals
25. According to the writer, many Chinese people celebrate Christmas _________. A. for no reason B. for the birth of Chris C. because most of them are Christians D. because they don?t like Chinese festivals 26. The underlined word “bigot” in Paragraph 3 means ________. A. a very brave person C. a very careful person B. a very stubborn person D. a very popular person
27. We can learn from the passage that _________. A. more and more Chinese people celebrate western festivals now B. Chinese people pay enough attention to our own festivals C. no Christmas celebration means one lacks cultural tolerance D. the writer doesn?t like cultural exchanges and communications with other countries C The biggest hamburger restaurant chain(连锁) in the world is McDonald?s. It started in 1955
with just one restaurant, but now has more than 20000 worldwide. There are more than 12000 McDonald?s restaurants only in the US. You can find them in 100 countries on six continents. There isn?t a McDonald?s in Antarctica, but I don?t suppose they eat hamburgers at the South Pole. When you eat at a McDonald?s restaurant you are joining the 35 million people who eat and drink at McDonald?s every day, and there are more than one million people who work there. McDonald?s has sold 100 billion hamburgers since it opened, and it sells more than 6.8 million pounds of French Fries every day. How do you like your hamburger restaurant? There are old McDonald?s ---- part of one restaurant in England is 600 years old. There are elegant(高雅的) McDonald?s ---- there is one on the Champs Elysees in Paris. There are cool McDonald?s ---- there is one in Hollywood. There are McDonald?s restaurants on ships and trains, in hospitals and zoos, in airports and in colleges. Clearly many people like the speed, hygiene(卫生) and cheapness of fast food restaurants. However, not everyone likes fast food. Some people question the nutritional value of the food; some people think the fast food causes too much waste and pollution. So the fast food business gives us plenty of food for thought, as well as convenient, affordable meals. 28. There are ________ McDonald?s restaurants outside the US now. A. about 20000 C. about 12000 B. about 8000 D. about 32000
29. How many people does each McDonald?s employees serve on average every day? _______ A. About 35 billion C. About 35 million B. About 100 billion D. About 600 million
30. From the passage we can infer that ________. A. there are McDonald?s of different styles to meet different customers B. the writer encourage more people to eat hamburgers C. the writer thinks people should stop eating hamburgers D. hamburgers are of great nutritional value 31. The underlined phrase“plenty of food for thought”in the last paragraph probably means ______. A. a lot of delicious food B. a lot of food you can afford
C. a lot of things to think aboutD. a lot of convenient food
D There are many people who say Thomas Edison invented the twentieth century. Although there are those who may disagree, yet Edison was one of the greatest inventors in America. Born in 1847 in Ohio, Thomas Edison attended school for only three months. After his teacher said that he could not learn, Edison?s mother decided to teach him at home. There he was allowed to study the subjects that most interested him. By age ten, Edison had built a science laboratory of his own. Edison got his first job at age twelve on the railway selling candy and newspapers. There he once saved a boy whose father was the boss of the railway station. In return the boss helped him a lot. In his late twenties, Edison built an “invention factory” where he and his business partners could devote all their time to inventing. After improving upon the telephone, Edison created the phonograph(留声机). Although Edison did not actually invent the light bulb, he did create an electric lighting system which led to its widespread use. Edison set up the first central electric power station in 1882, so New York became the first city in the world to have electric lights. This was the beginning of the modern world in which electricity became a way of life. The following year, one of Edison?s engineers discovered electrons(电子), which at last led to electronics. Without electronics, we might not have radio, TV, computers, or space travel. The rest of Edison?s life was spent making and improving inventions. Thomas Edison died at the age of eighty-four in 1931. Three days later, much of America dimmed(使暗淡) its lights in honor of the inventor—a man who had more impact (影响)on the development of present-day civilization than anyone else in history. 32. The passage tells us that ________. A. Edison didn?t like to study at school B. Edison invented the light bulb in his late twenties C. even without electronics, we might have radio, TV, computers, or space travel D. New York was the first city in the world to have electric lights 33. From the passage, we can infer that _________. A. Edison?s teacher thought Edison was not worth teaching
B. Edison?s mother stopped Edison studying at school C. Edison didn?t invent many things in all his life D. Edison didn?t spend his life working on these inventions when he was old 34. Why did many Americans dim their lights when Edison died? ________. A. Americans wanted to save more energy. B. Americans were used to dimming their lights. C. Americans dimmed their lights in memory of the great inventor. D. Americans were made to dim their lights. 35. The best title for this passage is ________. A. Edison, a Poor Man B. Edison, a Great Inventor C. Edison Died at 84 D. Edison and His Childhood
