I wanted to play outside and not to be made to finish eating my old rice. When angrily opening the screen door with my foot, I kicked back about a 12-inch part of the lower left hand corner of the new screen door. But I had no regret, for I was happy to be playing in the backyard with my toys. Today, I know if my child had done what I did, I would have scolded my child, and told him about how expensive this new screen door was, and I would have delivered a spanking (打屁股) for it. They never said a word. They left the corner of the screen door pushed out, creating an opening, a breach (裂缝) in the defense against unwanted insects. For years, every time I saw that corner of the screen, it would constantly remind me of my mistake. For
years, I knew that everyone in my family would see that hole and remember who did it. For years, every time I saw a fly buzzing(嗡嗡) in the kitchen, I would wonder if it came in through the hole that I had created with my angry foot. I would wonder if my family members were thinking the same thing, silently blaming me every time a flying insect entered our home, making life more terrible for us all. My parents taught me a valuable lesson, one that a spanking or stern ( 严厉的 ) words perhaps could not deliver. Their silent punishment for what I had done delivered a hundred stern messages to me. Above all, it has helped me become a more patient person and not burst out so easily. 21. When the author damaged the door, his parents __________. A. scolded him for what he had done B. gave him a spanking C. told him how expensive it was D. left the door unrepaired 22. How did the author feel every time he saw the damaged door? A. He felt it destroyed the happy atmosphere at his home. B. He found that his family members no longer liked him. C. He felt it a shame not to control his anger at that time. D. He felt he had to work hard to make up for the damage. 23. The experience may cause the author ___________. A. to have a better control of himself B. not to go against his parents’ will C. to hide his anger away from others D. not to make mistakes in the future 24. What is the main idea of this text? A. Adults should ignore their children’s bad behavior. B. Silent punishment may have a better effect on educating people. C. What is the best way to become a more patient person . D. Parents are the best teachers of their children. B Kids are cool to wear blue jeans and T-shirts today. It is fashionable like that. Fashion refers to the styles of dress that are currently popular. Fashion goes beyond just clothes, though. It’s important for some people to wear only the latest fashions and styles. For others, though, keeping up with trends(潮流) isn’t that important. The one thing that stays the same with fashion is this: it always changes! During the 1960s and 1970s, hippies made bell---bottomed blue jeans（喇叭裤）popular. Also, in the 1980s, Michael Jackson made parachute pants（降落伞裤）all the fashion. Now try to find these items in today’s clothing stores! Do you know why fashions change？The answer is probably as simple as the fact that people change. Over time, the new replaces the old. People are influenced greatly by popular culture, including athletes, musicians, movies stars, as well as popular films, television shows, books and music. We are also influenced by the fashion industry’s advertising. The stars of popular culture are always searching for a new angle to maintain（保持）their popularity. Often these new angles come in the form of new clothing or hairstyles. When people see these new styles, they often want to follow their favorite stars. To do so, they find the latest fashions to make themselves look like the people they want to follow. In this way, fashions develop gradually and change over time. Clothes have been used to separate people into groups for many years. Even today, brand-name, clothing that is more expensive than other types of clothing can be used by some people to make themselves different from others. Unfortunately, this can often have the effect of distancing certain groups from others. Don’t forget that it’s always OK to develop your own sense of style that is unique and separate from what the fashion world determines! Stay true to yourself and let your personality---not your clothes---speak for who you are！
25．What does the example of bell---bottomed blue jeans and parachute pants in Paragraph 2 suggest？ A．Fashion always changes. B．Stars are always influential. C．People have different dressing styles. D．Michael Jackson are good designers. 26．What causes the changes of fashions？ A．Advertisements change rapidly. B．Popular culture influences people. C．Movie stars are changing over time. D．New films and shows replace the old. 27．What does the author mainly want to stress(强调) in the last paragraph？ A．The advantages of staying unique. B．The bad effects of following fashion. C．The good influences of popular styles. D．The importance of having one’s own personality. 28．We can learn from the text that_________ . A．fashion is all about clothes B．the author has gone out of fashion C．clothes may separate and distance people D．people like to follow others’ dressing style C There was a man playing the piano in a bar. He was a good piano player and always performed in this bar. People came in just to hear him play. But one night, a customer told him that he didn’t want to hear him just play the piano any more. He wanted him to sing a song. The man said, “I don’t sing.” But the customer was persistent (固执的). He told the bar manager, “I’m tired of listening to the piano. I want that man to sing!” The manager shouted across the room, “If you want to get paid, sing a song. Our customers are asking you to sing!” So he did. He sang a song. A piano player who had never sung in public did so for the first time. And everyone was surprised by his song — “Mona, Mona Lisa”. He got lots of applause (掌声) that night. He had such a talent for singing, but he just had been sitting on his talent for the past years! If without such a chance, he may have lived the rest of his life as a no-name piano player in a no-name bar. However, now he had become one of the best-known singers in America. You, too, have skills and abilities. Maybe your “talent” is not as great as the singer above, but it may be better than you think! And with effort, most skills can be improved. So, in your life, you should be brave enough to try doing different things and find out what talents you really have! 29. Why did the man start to sing? A. Because he wanted to make more money. B. Because the bar manager said he liked his song. C. Because the manager asked him to sing at the request of a customer. D. Because he wanted to show everyone that he had a talent for singing. 30. What do you think of the bar manager? A. Strict. B. Rude. C. Patient. D. Kind. 31. What do the underlined words “he just had been sitting on his talent” probably mean? A. He didn’t discover his talent. B. He didn’t sing. C. He had no talent for singing. D. He hated to sing. D Have you ever wanted to be healthier? Get a pet! That is what the experts are saying. There are many advantages of owning a pet, no matter whether it is a cat, dog, or horse. Some new parents are often in a hurry to get rid of their pets when a baby is expected. Yet, studies have
shown that having a pet at home actually reduces a child’s likelihood of developing certain kinds of diseases. In one study, a researcher studied 300 new-born babies and tested them again a year later. He found that if they had a dog at home the children had up to 33% fewer allergies (过敏症). In addition, the children had stronger immune systems (免疫系统) when compared to the babies of homes with no pets. In another study, researchers tested nearly 4,500 people. They found that cat owners who spent time stroking (抚摸) their cats suffered 40% fewer heart attacks than those who did not own a cat. Some other studies also found that pet owners suffered less serious from depression (沮丧) than non-pet owners. Horses have long been used in treatments for disabled people, both physically and mentally. Not only does the movement of the horse help people with physical problems, but the calming influence of the animals has a positive effect on them, too. Amazing changes have been noticed in disabled people who are lucky enough to receive these treatments. From cats to horses, having a pet can really have positive effects on our health. 32. What does the underlined word in the second paragraph probably mean? A. Degree. B. Possibility. C. Opportunity. D. Decision. 33. From the second and third paragraphs, we can infer that ______. A. having a pet at home makes a baby weak B. the children in home without a dog may have strong immune system C. non-pet owners may easily suffer from depression than pet owners D. keeping a pet cat is better than keeping a pet dog 34. What is the main idea of the fourth paragraph? A. How to raise a horse. B. The way of keeping healthy. C. How horses benefit disabled people. D. How to treat disabled people. 35. Which of the following is TRUE according to the text? A. New parents sometimes refuse to have a pet when they have a baby. B. If you want to keep healthy, do nothing but keep a pet. C. Cat owners suffer more heart attacks than others. D. Horses can cure the problems of disabled people. 第二节（共 5 小题；每小题 2 分，满分 10 分） 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。 Eyesight plays a very important role in our daily life.

M: Yes, as a matter of fact, I’m crazy about them. Unfortunately, my major is history. Text 3 W: Bill! Supper is ready. Will you get the children? M: Where are they? W: They are playing basketball in front of the library. Text 4 M: Hurry up and you’ll make it in time for the next show. W: Not if there’s a line. I hate hearing “Sold out” after standing in line for so long. Text 5 W: I wish we had been able to find something better to read. That book Lily gave us is so boring! M: Really? I started it yesterday morning and I haven’t been able to put it down. Text 6 M: And then we’ll go for coffee. Is that OK with you, Emma? Emma? Are you listening to me? W: What? Oh, sorry. What did you say? M: What’s the matter, Emma? You seem pretty worried. W: It’s my daughter. She wants to move out and get her own apartment. M: Does she have a job? W: Yeah, she actually has a good job. I don’t know. I just don’t like the idea. M: Frankly, Emma, I think you should learn to live with it. Text 7 W: Okay, we’re all set. M: Great. W: Your flight number on August 3rd is UA796 from Hong Kong to San Francisco. You leave Hong Kong at 11:30 a.m. and arrive in San Francisco the same day at 8:15 a.m. local time. M: 8:15 a.m. Okay. W: Now, for the return flight, you’ve got two choices. The first is UA797, which leaves from San Francisco at 5:30 a.m. on August 23rd and arrives in Hong Kong at 12:30 p.m. on August 24th. M: All right. W: Or you can take UA763, which leaves San Francisco at 7:30 a.m., stops in Tokyo at 10:30 a.m. on August 24th, departs at 5:30 p.m., and arrives in Hong Kong at 10:30 p.m. on the 24th.

M: Good for you. That was really honest of you. W: I had a nice surprise three months later. The police gave me the money. They didn’t find the person who lost it. M: Well, I’ll never forget the time I lost a bunch of money. W: What happened? M: I was waiting to pay for some groceries, but I realized that my wallet was empty! I was sure I had about ＄100. I was so embarrassed! I went home and searched everywhere. W: So, did you ever find it? M: You won’t believe it. I found it in the washing machine the next time I did laundry. I guess it was in my pants pocket the whole time. Text 10 If you lived in England, where would you rather go shopping, a corner shop or a supermarket? Corner shops are not big and you sometimes cannot find the things you want, but the staff there are very friendly, and they usually know what your favorite products are. They may even let you buy what you want and pay later if you do not have enough money with you. They are very nice and helpful. Supermarkets are much bigger than corner shops and they are better equipped. Prices there are often lower than in corner shops. However, many things in the supermarket are not fresh, and sometimes they sit on the shelves for a long time. Products like milk and eggs have to be kept in refrigerators, but sometimes they pass their sell-by dates. The shop assistants sometimes write a new date on the container and the product is “fresh” again. To sum up, supermarkets and corner shops both have advantages and disadvantages depending on the kind of product you want to buy.
