第二部分 阅读理解（共两节，每小题 2 分，满分 50 分）
第一节 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。（共 20 小题；每小题 2 分，满分 40 分） A As long as you have broadband service in your home, you can turn on your desktop computer and connect to the Internet. If you have a wireless router, a device that spreads the broadband connection to other devices, you can set up a Wi-Fi network, which enables your cellphones and tablets go online too. And when you are outdoors where there is no Wi-Fi, such as in the park or at the beach, having 3G service allows you to stay connected. It seems that lots of us have Internet coverage everywhere we go. So why have mobile companies around the world lately been so enthusiastic about a new term, “4G”? First, you need to know that the letter “G” stands for “generation”. Even if you have no idea what 4G is, at least you can figure out that it is a step up from 3G since it’s the latest generation of mobile Internet service. Unlike broadband, mobile Internet uses the same signal towers that provide voice service to your cellphone, which means wherever you can make phone calls with your cellphone you also have an Internet connection. But mobile connections have their defects they don’t carry as much information as broadband does, making opening websites and downloading music slower than they are on a Wi-Fi connection. This is why mobile connections have been constantly upgraded since the first generation was launched back in the 1980s. According to BBC, 4G is five to seven times faster than current 3G network speeds, almost as fast as home broadband. Because of this, 4G is widely suited for services like video downloading, mapping, online shopping and even video conferencing. To achieve the high speeds, network companies have to spend a lot of money on building new signal towers, which will eventually lead to a higher phone bill if you switch to 4G,, and you will also have to get a new phone with 4G capacity. 31. What is paragraph 1 mainly about? A. The development of Wi-Fi. B. Various ways to get access to the Internet. C. The influences of the Internet on our life.

D. The convenience of using cellphones. 32. The underlined word “defects” in Paragraph4 probably means_______. A. disadvantages B. functions C. qualities D. benefits 33. What is the weakness of 3G compared with 4G? A. Its voice is not as clear as 4G. 34. What does the author think of 4G service? A. Its service is worth the price. C. It takes time to be widely used. B. There is no need to develop it. D. It provides good service at a higher price. B Everyone has got two personalities — the one that is shown to the world and the other that is secret and real. You don’t show your secret personality when you're awake because you can control your behavior, but when you're asleep, your sleeping position shows the real you. During a normal night, of course, people frequently change their position. The important position is the one that you go to sleep in. If you go to sleep on your back, you’re a very open person. You normally trust people and you are easily influenced by fashion or new ideas. You don’t like to upset people, so you never express your real feelings. You’re quite shy and you aren't very confident. If you sleep on your stomach, you are a rather secretive person. You worry a lot and you're always easily upset. You’re very stubborn, but you aren't very ambitious. You usually live for today not for tomorrow. This means that you enjoy having a good time. If you sleep curled up, you are probably a very nervous person. You have a low opinion of yourself and so you’re often defensive. You're shy and you don't normally like meeting people. You prefer to be on your own. You're easily hurt. If you sleep on your side, you have usually got a well-balanced personality. You know your strengths and weaknesses. You’re usually careful. You have a confident personality. You sometimes feel anxious, but you don't often get depressed. You always say what you think even if it annoys people. 35. According to the writer, you naturally show your secret and real personality _______. A. only during a normal night B. only when you go to sleep C. only when you refuse to show yourself to the world D. only when you change sleeping position 36. Which of the following shows the personality of a person sleeping on his / her stomach？ A. He / she is careful not to offend others. B. He / she doesn’t want to stick to his or her opinion.

B. It can’t satisfy the users’ basic needs.
C. Its network speeds are much slower. D. It has much less popularity than 4G.
C. He / she may not be successful in any business. D. He / she likes to bring others happiness. 37. Maybe you don’t want to make friends with a person who sleeps curled up, because _______. A. he / she would rather be alone than communicate with you B. he / she is rarely ready to help you C. he / she prefers staying at home to going out D. he/ she wouldn’t like to get help from you 38. It appears that the writer tends to think highly of the person who sleeps on one side because_______. A. he / she always shows sympathy for people B. he / she is confident, but not stubborn C. he / she has more strengths than weaknesses D. he / she often considers annoying people C While working with troubled teens， I used to have them do the Ten Years in the Future exercise. I asked them to write a letter to a friend as if it was ten years in the future. Most of these boys and girls didn’t think about the next week，much less ten years to come. Like the Cheshire Cat says in Alice in Wonderland, “If you don’t know where you want to go，then it doesn’t really matter what road you take!” We had some great conversations as they really thought about what they wanted. For most of them, this was the first time they had ever thought this way! But the real story is what happened to me. I did the exercise right along with them on many occasions, writing my dreams and visions in detail. In my letter to a friend, I had moved to the country, built my own home，authored a book，and started my own business. Over the next ten years, something magic happened．All my dreams and visions became a reality, almost as if arranged by an unseen hand. I did write books and start my business. We did move to the country and I did build my own home． This letter to a friend will become a magnetic factor in your life. Your vision will guide you in your yearly goals, your monthly goals， and your daily activities. For example “Leslie， I just wanted to make contact again and tell you about my life. I started my own gardening business in 2020 and it’s really taken off. ” Remember to describe all the details as if they have already happened. Write to a real person who you think may still know in ten years. This will help make it more real for you． Sit down and write your Ten Years in the Future letter today． 39. What can we learn from what the Cheshire Cat says? A. You should have a goal. B. You had better not copy others.
第 - 5 - 页 共 15 页
C. You may do what you want to do. A. had put something magic in the letter B. could foresee what would happen
D. You may have different ideas.
40. It seems that the writer’s dreams and visions became a reality because the writer_______.
C. was experienced in writing the Ten Years letter D. took what was written in the letter as a guide in life 41. According to the writer,“Leslie” in your letter should be the person that_______. A. does the same exercise as you B. will become your friend in ten years C. you know now and may still know in the future D. you can imagine when you write your letter 42. Which of the topics are included in this passage? a. The author’s own experience with the Ten Years in the Future exercise． b. How the author got the idea of the Ten Years in the Future exercise． c. How to write the Ten Years in the Future 1etter． d. The author’s experience of working with troubled teens． e. The difficulty in dealing with troubled teens． f. How to improve your letter writing skill． A. a，d，f B. a，c，d C. b，c，d D Maybe it is true that we do not know what we have got until we lose it, but it is also true that we do not know what we have been missing until it arrives． It takes an hour to like someone, and a day to love someone, but it takes a lifetime to forget someone．Giving someone all your love is never an assurance that they will love you back．Do not expect love in return; but if it does not, be content it has grown in yours．Do not rely on one’s appearance; it can trick you．Do not rely on wealth; even that fades away．Rely on someone who makes you smile, because it takes only a smile to make a dark day seem bright． There are moments in life when you miss someone so much that you just want to pick them from your dreams and hug them．Dream what you want to dream; go where you want to go; be what you want to be, because you have only one life and one chance to do all the things you want to do． The brightest future will always be based on a forgotten past． You cannot go on well in life until you let your past failures and heartaches go off．May you have enough happiness to make you sweet, enough trails to make you strong, enough sorrow to keep you human, enough hope to make

you happy．The happiest of people do not necessarily have the best of everything; they just make the most of everything that comes along their way. Happiness waits for those who cry, those appreciate the importance of people who have touched their lives．Always put yourself in others’ shoes．If you feel that it hurts you, it probably hurts the other person, too． When you were born, you were crying and everyone around you was smiling．Live your life so that when you die, you are the one who is smiling and everyone around you is crying． 43. In this passage, the writer wants to tell us _______. A. what to do in our life C. how to get on well with other persons B. where to go with other persons D. how to treat our life

A. can accept the suggestions made by others B. can live happily and forget the past C. has made a lot of money for himself before he dies D. does good for other people and is respected and loved by them E Undoubtedly there are a few positive characters who are able to “rise above” their environment, who are able to impress the people with whom they come in contact in spite of their clothes. Sometimes we read of some learned woman, who has “made good in her profession,” who says that she has not looked in a mirror for years; but such a woman is a rare exception, and one is not safe in gambling with one’s chances of success by following her. It is not the positive characters with whom we are concerned, however, for they are few and somehow manage to take care of themselves. The vast majority of the race are not so blessed, and we need to observe but little to

realize that with them the reaction of clothes is an important factor. School girls should know that clothes may make a career; happiness and leadership in all the years of high school and college life may be affected by the story a Freshman’s clothes tell. Many a girl with a keen mind, who has a natural disregard for clothes, perhaps, or who has not been trained in the appreciation of beauty in clothes, has lost her opportunities for leadership and self-expression which by right her brain power should have given her. One of the mental capacities which we all exercise and yet exercise most unconsciously is that of passing judgment on the people we meet. In a majority of cases the judgment is superficial and inaccurate; but the estimate is made. Some people may not get their final judgment till they hear one talk and will judge one by the tone of voice and by what is said as the true index; but the vast majority will form an opinion based largely, if not entirely, on appearance. One tells the world daily of one’s ideals, ambitions or good breeding through dress; and it is told so plainly that “he who runs may read” and, perhaps, he who reads may run. 47. According to the first two paragraphs, few people _______. A. care about their appearances B. understand the art of dressing themselves C. can catch others’ attention by dressing plainly D. are able to dress properly without professional directions 48. Who is the text intended for? A. Book writers B. Women C. Men D. Fashion designers
49. The author thinks it is _______ for most of us to judge the people we meet by what they wear. A. natural B. foolish C. surprising D. necessary
50. Which of the following can be the best title? A. Rise Above Your Environment B. He Who Runs May Read C. Dress to Impress D. Art of Dressing 第二节 根据对话内容，从对话后的选项中选出能填入空白处的最佳选项，并在答题卡上将该 项涂黑，选项中有两项多余选项。 （共 5 小题；每小题 2 分，满分 10 分） M Oh, Christina, is that you? How have you been? W I’ve been okay. I’ve just been busy with school.

Though there are also some who look really young for their age, white people generally look older! Why do they look older? I think it’s because of both genes and lifestyle. White people are generally taller, which makes them appear older. Moreover, they like to be sunburnt, which ages and damages the skin and causes wrinkles. A 15-year-old white girl is addicted to sunbeds and has been using them for 3 years – and her skin is literally baked and dermatologists (皮肤科医生) say

that she has the skin of a 35-year-old! In fact, aging is based little on race, as it is on diet, exercise, and other lifestyle choices. We tend to eat more skin-friendly food, like fish and beans, but white people do not eat them so much. Makeup is bad for skin and ages it quicker too, and generally, white people start to wear it much younger and use a lot of it. Some even start to experiment with makeup at about 8 or 9 and wear makeup properly at around 12 to 14. Some white celebrities might look a little younger due to their makeup, but still they look older than their age. 56. What ’s the function of the first paragraph? (no more than 5 words) ____________________ 57. Why does the author think that the white look older? (no more than 5 words) ____________________ 58. How does the author prove that being sunburnt is harmful to one’s skin? (no more than 4 words) ____________________ 59. What is aging mainly connected with according to the last paragraph?
