第二节 完形填空 (共20小题;每小题1分，满分20分)
Teach Me in the way To Go
I grew up in a very poor Catholic family. My father used some 36 ways to teach us and rarely spared us from the school of hard lessons. This is the one I 37 most.
On the first day of 2nd grade, my father asked me if I could 38 well. “Yes, I can,” I said. So he gave me a hand-drawn 39 with street names and directions on how to walk to school. School is 3 miles away, and I had never been off my home street by myself, ever.
The 40 he gave me as he sends me the map with my lunch box and jacket said very little, he 41 says, “Everything you need to know is written on the map, read the map and 42 the directions.”
Okay, by now I was standing in 43 at his request, scared to death, but he kissed me goodbye and sent me out the door. And 44 I went to school, crying, but 45 .
I don’t know how long it took for me to get there, or how many fearful and anxious 46 I had, but I do remember forever 47 it felt when I came around the last corner, and saw my school. The 48 , the laughter, the joy. I had made it! I jumped 49 and angry as I was with my Dad, I wished I could tell him 50 that I had done it.
He wasn’t there when I got home and I was 51 when he got home. The next day I waited for him to ask what had happened. He never did. We laughed and talked and our 52 began.
Years later I finally got the 53 to ask him why he did that and why he hadn’t cared about what had happened. He just looked at me for a few minutes then said, “I didn’t have to ask you, I knew. I followed you the whole way in the car, 54 far enough back so you could not see me. I saw you jump up and down at the last street corner. I 55 what you felt.”
Then I understood and I cried.

第三部分 阅读理解 (共15小题;每小题2分，满分30分)
It’s 5:00 in the morning when the alarm (闹钟) rings in my ears. I roll out of bed and walk blindly through the dark into the bathroom. I turn on the light and put on my glasses. The house is still as I walk downstairs while my husband and three kids sleep peacefully. Usually I go for a long run, but today I choose my favorite exercise DVD, Insanity. Sweat pours down my face and into my eyes. My heart races as I face my body to finish each movement. As I near the end of the exercise ,I feel extremely tired, but a smile is of my face. It’s a smile because the DVD is over , but a smile of success from pushing my body to its extreme limit.
Some people enjoy shopping, smoking, food, work, or even chocolate. But I need exercise to get through each day. Some shake heads when they see me run through the town. Others get hurt when I refuse to try just one bite of their grandmother’s chocolate cake. They raise their eyebrows, surprised by my “no thank you,” or by my choice to have a salad. Over the years, I have learned it’s okay to just say “no.” I shouldn’t feel sorry for refusing food that I don’t want to eat.
So what drives me to roll out of bed at 5:00 a.m.? What gives me the reason to just say to ice cream? Commitment. A commitment to change my life with a way that reduces daily anxiety, increases self –confidence and energy, extends life and above all improves my body shape. This is the point where a smile appears on my face as I look at myself in the mirror or try on my favorite pair of jeans that now fit just right. It’s through commitment and sweat that I can make a difference within myself inside and out.
56. Why is there a smile on the author’s face in the morning?
A. Because she sees her family sleeping peacefully.
B. Because she finishes her favorite exercise.
C. Because she enjoys the interesting DVD.
D. Because she feels a sense of achievement

A. She doesn’t like others politely.
B. She likes to make others surprised.
C. Others don’t understand what she dose.
D. Others try to help her by offering her food.
58. What does the underlined word “commitment” in the last paragraph mean?
A. Good health B. Firm belief C. A strong power D. A regular habit
59. What can we learn about the author from the text?
A. She acts in a strange way.
B. She wants to look different from others.
C. She aims to develop a good body shape.
D. She has difficulty getting along with others.

The common cold is the world’s most widespread illness, which is probably why there are more myths about it than any of the other illnesses.
The most widespread mistake of all is that colds are caused by cold.They are not.They are caused by viruses passing on from person to person.You catch a cold by coming into contact，directly or indirectly, with someone who already has one.If cold causes colds，it would be reasonable to expect the Eskimos to suffer from them forever.But they do not.And in distant and isolated Arctic regions explorers have reposed being free from colds until coming into contact again with infected(感染的)people from the outside world by way of packages and mail dropped from airplanes.
At the Common Cold Research Unit in England, volunteers took part in experiments in which they gave themselves to the discomforts of being cold and wet for long periods of time.After taking hot baths，they put on bathing suits，allowed themselves to be doused(浸入)with cold water, and then stood about dripping wet in drafty(通风的)room.Some wore wet socks all day while others exercised in the rain until close to complete tiredness.Not one of the volunteers came down with a cold unless a cold virus was actually dropped in his nose.
If, then，cold and wet have nothing to do with catching colds，why are they more frequent in the winter? Despite the most pains--taking research，no one has yet found the answer.One explanation offered by scientists is that people are more likely to stay together indoors in cold weather than at other times, and this makes it easier for cold viruses to be passed on.
No one has yet found a cure for the cold.There are drugs and pain suppressors(止痛片) such
as aspirin，but all they do is to relieve the symptoms.
64. The fact that the Eskimos don’t suffer colds shows that _____.
A. colds are really full of myths.
B. viruses are the factors causing colds.
C. colds are more serious than other illnesses.
D. the idea that cold leads to colds doesn’t stand up.
65. The experiments mentioned in Paragraph 3 made it clear that _____.
A. being doused with cold water did harm to one’s body.
B. taking hot baths made the volunteers easy to be tired.
C. it was viruses not wet and cold that made people have colds.
D. people who would like to exercise in the rain got colds more easily.
66. According to the passage, colds are commonly seen in winter because _____.
A. there is great difference between indoor and outdoor temperature.
B. viruses can go into people’s warm bodies more easily in winter.
C. staying together indoors makes it easier for viruses to pass on.
D. People are usually weak because of the extreme cold in winter
67. The passage mainly discusses_____.
A. the reason and the way people catch colds.
B. the myths about colds.
C. the experiments on colds.
D. the continued spread of common colds.
People often have the impression that Chinese characters are extremely difficult to learn. In fact, if you were to try to learn how to write Chinese characters, you would find that they are not nearly as difficult as you may have imagined. And they certainly qualify as forming one of the most attractive, beautiful, logical(合乎逻辑的), and scientifically constructed(构造) writing systems in the world. Each stroke(笔画)has its own special significance. If you are familiar with the rules of Chinese characters, you will find it very easy to remember even the most complicated looking character, and never miss a stroke.
The earliest known examples of Chinese written characters in their developed form are carved into tortoise shells and ox bones. The majority of these characters are pictographs. Archaeologists of various countries have learned that most early writing systems went through a pictographic stage, as did the Egyptian hieroglyphics. Most writing systems, however, eventually developed a phonetic(表示语音的)alphabet to represent the sounds of spoken language rather than visual images observed in the physical world.
One notable feature of Chinese characters is the "radical." "Radical" in English means "root". For example, the characters yu "language," shuo "talk," i "discuss," "opinion," and lun "discuss" all share the yen radical, which means "language," and gives the reader a clue to the meaning of the character as a whole. The characters hsiu "rotten," shan "cedar," " t"ao "peach," and lin "forest," all contain the mu "wood" or "tree" radical, indicating one of their shared key characteristics. If you know the radical of a character, you can usually get a general idea of the meaning of the character it is a part of. Although there is a theoretical total of almost 50,000 written Chinese characters, only about 5,000 of these are frequently used; and the total number of radicals is only 214. So learning to read and write Chinese is not nearly so formidable a task as it may at first seem.
68. According to the author, Chinese characters are _____.
A. extremely difficult to learn B. as difficult as you may have imagined
C. difficult to remember D. scientifically constructed
69. Which of the following statements is TRUE according to the passage?
A. All the Chinese characters are pictographs.
B. Some strokes are more important than others.
C. There are rules in forming the Chinese characters.
D. Some writing systems eventually developed a phonetic alphabet.
70. The passage is mainly about _____.
A. the Chinese writing system
B. the strokes of the Chinese characters
D. the radical of the Chinese characters

One possible version:
With the development of advertising, ads have been connected with people’s life. Last week, the students in our class had a discussion about whether it is good or bad. Some people think advertisements don’t tell the fact about the products advertised. Also, they take up too much time on TV and the radio, and cover too much space in newspapers and magazines, which waste a lot of paper. What’s worse, there are some false advertisements that cheat people into buying their things. Therefore, they believe advertisements should be stopped.
While other people think advertisements can help us make better choices about what to buy by offering us the latest information about various goods. Moreover, many well-done advertisements are popular and eye-catching, which not only attract the consumers’ attention but also allow consumers to appreciate arts . Finally, PSAs enable the public to realize some social concerns. So we should develop advertising properly.
In my opinion, advertising is like a two-side sword. Anyway, we can be wise if we are able to distinguish between fiction and fact.

Ladies and Gentlemen, may I have your attention, please. Before I go on to talk about our target for the coming year, let’s have a look at our performance over the year. Since I am in charge of our company. I ‘m going to divide my review into two parts: financial and technology.
On the financial front, the results have been very pleasing. The whole sale has increased by 28%, costs have dropped by 3% and profits are up by 16%. So the company as a whole has performed well. Some sales have done very well, especially in China, our largest export market. The consumer market at home has been very competitive and will continue to be so. Our results in this market have been rather disappointing, just 2% up compared with last year.
