His parents lived in London where his father was researching medicine. He did not want to follow his father as his parents hoped. Mathematics was not available at University College, so he did physics in-stead. Stephen was interested in studying the universe. When he was 21, however, he was told that he had ALS —an incurable (不可治疗的) nerve disease, which affects walking, speaking, breathing, swallowing, and many other things. The doctors predicted that he had only a few years to live, but he didn’t die. Instead, as his physical condition be-came worse, Hawking became more well-known in scientific circles. Hawking himself said that his disease was a big reason why he focused his attention on what turned out to be his real strength: theoretical (理论的) research. "What the doctors said made me determine to get the most from life, and life was no longer boring for me, "Hawking says today, speaking from his wheelchair through a computer. In 1988, Stephen Hawking published a book called A Brief History of Time. The book tries to explain many of Hawking’s physical and mathematical ideas and calculations without using maths. The book became a best-seller. His later books are Black Holes and Baby Universes and Other Essays and most recently in 2001, The Universe in a Nutshell. Of the three, the first one was made B. damaged B. rare B. convinced B. Patiently B. intelligent B. satisfied B. Once B. boring B. connect B. sign B. Even B. connected B. decided B. way B. formally B. difference B. them B. willing B. settled B. all in all C. removed C. hard C. expressed C. Normally C. famous C. sorry C. Rarely C. late C. cover C. article C. Meanwhile C. related C. succeeded C. sense C. finally C. distance C. such C. able C. achieved C. after all D. Impaired D. Serious D. Recognized D. Fortunately D. Beneficial D. Annoyed D. Never D. Early D. replace D. note D. Instead D. addicted D. managed D. possibility D. lastly D. connection D. it D. determined D. overcome D. above all

into a film in 1991. Hawking says, "Nowadays, muscle power is out of date. What we need is mind power —and disabled people are as good at that as anyone else." 46. What did Hawking’s parents want him to study in the university? A. Physics. B. Geography. C. Medicine. D. Mathematics. B. was very bored with life D. was interested in everything around him B. stopped him from becoming more famous D. caused him to lose hope of living 47. From the second paragraph, we can learn that before he knew his disease, Hawking ________. A. focused his attention on his research C. always valued time 48. According to Hawking, his disease _______. A. stopped him from making greater achievements C. made him focus all of his attention on research A. The Universe in a Nutshell. C. On the Shoulders of Giants. A. Stephen Hawking and the Universe C. Stephen Hawking’s Illness and Cure

49. Which one of Stephen Hawking’s books was made into a movie? B. Black holes and Baby Universes and Other Essays. D. A Brief History of Time. B. The Brief History of Stephen Hawking D Disabled People Are Good at Thinking B Just because you are in a wheelchair doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the competitiveness(竞争) —the all-around fun —that playing sports offers you. More and more wheelchair users are playing sports every day —some even on a professional level. The following are just a few examples of the different choices you have. Wheelchair basketball is a very common wheelchair sport. It was started over forty years ago as part of a medical recovery(康复) program. Over the years it has grown rapid-ly. Today wheelchair basketball is a professional sport that has more than 180 teams across the United States. In order to play wheelchair basketball, it is essential to have a lightweight wheelchair. Several different kinds of sports wheelchairs are on the market today just for sports fans. Another wheelchair sport, quad rugby(橄榄球), was specifically designed for people who can’t move their arms or legs and are unable to play wheelchair basketball. It is a mixture of wheelchair basketball and ice hockey. To play the game you must have two teams of four players each. Power soccer is another fun wheelchair sport that can be very fun and exciting. Players in power soccer must have an electric wheelchair. Two teams have two 30-minute halves to push the soccer ball over the other team’s goal line. The first team to reach the other team’s goal line most frequently wins. Based on the sport you choose to take part in, there are several things you can buy for your wheelchair, including belts, gloves, bags for carrying things, drink holders and special back supports. 51. In which part of the newspaper will you read this passage? A. Technology. B. Society. C. Culture. D. Health. 52 In the beginning, wheelchair basketball was started for the purpose of ______. A. holding professional games around the US C. helping patients return to a normal life 53. Which of the following is TRUE about quad rugby? B. spreading the sport all over the US D. making people want to play sports

50. What would be the best title for the passage?


A. To play quad rugby, the players must buy bags and drink holders for their wheelchairs. B. The team who first push the soccer ball over the other team’s goal line more times win. C. It was designed for people who have arm or leg problems and can’t play wheelchair basketball. D. It is a combination of wheelchair basketball and power soccer. 54. To play power soccer, ______. A. there should be two teams with four players each C. wheelchair users have to have lightweight sports shoes 55. What is the main idea of the passage? A. To introduce some possible sports to wheelchair users. C. To encourage wheelchair users to compete with each other. C Did you know that Italian painter Leonardo da Vinci was a left-hander? However, left-handed people have been left out and discriminated(歧视) against by a largely right-handed world. "We have a lot of people e-mailing or phoning every day to say how difficult it is to use equipment at work," said Keith Milson, a British spokesperson for the Left-Handers Club, which claims to have 30, 000 members around the world. "It leads them to think that a particular task is not their strength, but the truth is that these instruments are made for the right-handed," Milson said. "The general view is that left-handers are less skilled, but it doesn’t reflect their natural abilities because they are forced to use the tools that haven’t been designed for them." For Milson, this is a serious issue that goes far beyond using a pair of scissors or a corkscrew(瓶塞钻). His group has won a series of notable victories in its fight to secure a safer and less right-handed world. These include forcing a major producer of hand-held power tools to make changes to their tools, and ensuring that all major British banks introduced left-handed check books. The latter may have proved especially beneficial for Milson and his wife Lauren who own a shop in London’s Soho district aiming at providing products and information to make life a bit easier for left-handers. No one can explain why about 13 percent of the world’s population is left-handed, according to the Left-Handers Club website, which suggests that the cause may be genetic(基因的). "It is common in twins for one to be left-handed," it adds. For centuries, the Greek, Italian, Spanish, French, Dutch, German, Portuguese and Latin words for left or left-handed always have had negative meanings, not to mention many English phrases. 56. According to the passage, the biggest headache for left-handers is________. A. that they are looked down upon by the right-handers C. that most of instruments are only designed for right-handers A. The 30,000 members of Left-Handers Club. C. All the right-handers in Britain. A. respected B. gifted C. quick-thinking B. that they aren’t able to finish difficult tasks D. that they are not given equal pay and respect B. To introduce some products to the wheelchair users. D. To talk about the differences between these sports. B. wheelchair users have to have an electric wheelchair D. wheelchair users have to be professional players

A. Because they want to sell right-handed products. B. Because they want to help left-handed people who are in trouble. C. Because they want to advertise the Left-Handers Club. D. Because they want to call on people to think about left-handed people. 60. From the passage, we learn that _______. A. many negative words are used to describe left-handers in English B. it has been found that the cause of left-handedness is genetic C. there must be one left-hander in every twin brothers or sisters D. left-handed people are in fact much smarter than right-handers 第二节(共 5 小题;毎小题 2 分,满分 10 分) 根据短文内容,从 A---F 选项中选出能概括每一段主题的最佳选项,并将答案写在答题卡上。选项中有一项是多 余的。 61、______ Before you argue with your boss, check with the boss’s secretary to determine his mood. If he ate nails for breakfast, it is not a good idea to ask him for something. Even without the boss’s secretary, there are keys to timing: don’t approach the boss when he’s on deadline; don’t go in right before lunch, when he is apt to be distracted and rushed; don’t go in just before or after he has taken a vacation. 62、______ If you are mad, that will only make your boss mad. Calm down first. And don’t let a particular concern open the floodgates for all your accumulated frustration. The boss will feel that you think negatively about the company and it is hopeless trying to change your mind. Then, maybe he will dismiss you. 63、______ Terrible disputes can result when neither the employer nor the employee knows what is the problem the other wants to discuss. Sometimes the fight will go away when the issues are made clear. The employee has to get his point across clearly in order to make the boss understands it. 64、______ Your boss has enough on his mind without your adding more. If you can’t put forward an immediate solution, at least suggest how to approach the problem. People who frequently present problems without solutions to their bosses may soon find they can’t get past the secretary. 65、______ To deal effectively with a boss, it’s important to consider his goals and pressure. If you can put yourself in the position of being a partner to the boss, then he will be naturally more inclined to work with you to achieve your goals. A、 Argue with Your Boss Everything You Want. C .Watch your timing. E. Propose Your Solution B. Make the Issues Clear. D. Don’t Go in When You Are Angry. F. Put Yourself in the Boss’s Position

57. What does the underlined word "them" in the third paragraph refer to? B. All the left-handed people in Britain. D. The left-handers e-mailing or phoning Milson. D. clumsy

58. According to the passage, people often use the word _______ to describe the left-handers. 59. Why do Milson and Lauren open a shop in London?
