II、阅读理解(共 30 分) A When a rather dirty, poorly dressed person kneels at your feet and puts out his hands to beg for a few coins, do you hurry on, not knowing what to do, or do you feel sad and hurriedly hand over some money? What should our attitude to beggars be? There can be no question that the world is full of terribly sad stories. It must be terrible to have no idea where our next meal is going to come from. It seems cruel not to give some money to beggars. Certainly, most of the world’s great religions order us to be open -hearted and share what we have with those less fortunate than ourselves. But has the world changed ?Maybe what was morally right in the old days ,when one knew exactly who in the village had suffered misfortune and needed help ,is no longer the best idea. Quite a few people will not give to beggars. Let us look at their arguments. First ,some believe that many city beggars dress up on purpose to look pitiable and actually make a good living from begging .Giving to beggars only encourages this sort of evil. Secondly, there is the worry that the money you give will be spent on beer, wine or drugs. Thirdly, there is the opinion that there is no real excuse for begging. One might be poor, but that is no reason for losing one’s sense of pride and self-dependence. Related to this is the opinion that the problem should be dealt with by the government rather than ordinary people .Some people think beggars should go to the local government department and receive help. It is hard to come to any final conclusion ;there are various cases and we must deal with them differently .A few coins can save a life in some situations ,and even if the money is wasted ,that does not take sway the moral goodness of the giver. 21．What is mainly discussed in the passage? A．Moral deeds of people. B．Religious activities of the church. C．Moral goodness of the giver. D．Arguments on giving to beggars. 22．What can we infer from the sentence “But has the world changed?” in the second paragraph? A．People no longer know who suffers misfortune in the village. B．Some people will not do what was morally right in the past. C．We don’t meet with those who need help any more. D．Now it is the government’s duty to help the beggars. 23．Which of the following is NOT mentioned in the passage? A．Some people dress up to pretend to be beggars. B．Some beggars want money to help their children go to school. C．Some beggars use the money to buy drugs. D．Some beggars have no excuse for begging. 24．In the last paragraph, the writer thinks that it is hard to come to any final conclusion, because . A．the cases can be so different B．there are so many beggars C．there is so much money wasted D．there are so many different arguments B
Do you have any strong opinion on co-educational or single-sex schools? A supporter of co-educational schools would probably say that schools should be like the societies they belong to .In Hong Kong, men and women mix socially on a day-to-day basis .In many fields men are even likely to have female bosses. It is, therefore, desirable that boys and girls grow up together, go to school together and prepare themselves for a society that does not value sexual separation. Some would go on to argue further that growing up with members of the opposite sex is important for personal development .Regular contact(接触) can remove the strange ideas about the opposite-sex and lead to more natural relationships .Single-sex conditions are seen as leading to more extreme opinions, and possibly even as encouraging homosexuality(同性恋), though there is no proof that this is the case. Those who are against co-education often also fix their attention on the sexual side .Some parents fear that close contact with members of the opposite sex is dangerous for teenagers .They want their children to be attentive to their studies .Such parents feel uncomfortable with modern ways and the free mixing of the sexes. A stronger argument comes from research into school results .Girls grow up earlier than boys ,tend to be more orderly and are likely to be better at languages .In a mixed class ,boys who might do well in a single-sex class become discouraged and take on the rule of troublemaker .Certainly in the UK this situation has greatly alarmed the government for it to be encouraging co-educational schools to have some single-sex classes .In the UK the best schools are all single-sex ,strongly suggesting that co-education is not the best answer .This may ,however ,not be as simple as it looks .It may simply be that the famous old schools that attract the best students happen to be single-sex ,rather than that being single-sex makes them better schools. 25． In the third paragraph, by saying “though there is no proof that this is the case”, the writer means that . A．students in single-sex schools will certainly become homosexual B．students in co-educational schools cannot have extreme opinions C．students in co-educational schools are likely to be homosexual D．single-sex school conditions may or may not have effects on the students. 26．All the following arguments can be found in the passage EXCEPT that . A．co-education can produce a society-like situation B．co-educational schools may lead to love affairs between boys and girls C．co-education will help develop a better understanding about the opposite sex D．co-education can make boys perform well in mixed classes 27．Alarmed by the situation, the UK government encourages . A．co-education B．single-sex education C．single-sex classes in co-educational schools D．co-educational classes in single-sex schools 28．At the end of the passage the writer suggests that. A．single-sex schools are the best schools in the UK B．being single-sex does not necessarily make a school better C．co-educational schools are better for both sexes in personal development D．because boys cannot compete with girls in study ,they go to single-sex schools C Project Management Assistant

D During the school year many parents take on the role of driver as they drive their children from one lesson to another. Understandably so. Many of us want our children to have a little taste of everything, from organized sports to music, dance and more. But we can overdo it, leaving our children feeling a little burnt out, and according to parent educator Diane Loisie, it's their school work which suffers the most. "After school, if they're busy in a number of sporting events, besides they need to do their homework, then the time they'll feel sleepy is in the classroom. Your child needs free time. So if you're filling up that after school time, .then it's during the day they're going to be taking a break. " Professor Claire McDermott agrees that there's a lot to be gained from sometimes putting those scheduled lessons and activities away. "Relaxing time is important for children. It's time just to do the things they want to do. A child can go up to their room, or they can play around. It doesn't look like productive time; parents certainly wouldn't be saying ‘Wow, are they ever learning things now?' But this relaxing time gives both the body and the brain just a wonderful chance to relax after a day. It helps a child prepare for sleep, but it also helps to understand the learning that's gone on that day. " It's hard to prevent signing our kids up for some activities and lessons. After all, many of us want our children to have a head start in life and the chance to join in great activities in the arts or sports is a part of that. However, Loisie feels that in the long run most children feel better with just a few key activities because it gives them an opportunity to master them. "When we get our children in too many activities because we want our children to experience everything, then what we're doing is setting them up not to he good at one thing or gaining a skill." So choose your children's activities wisely. It may be one of the best things you've ever done for your kids… and for the family driver! 32. What is the biggest disadvantage for children to attend too many lessons after school? A. They can get bored easily about everything. B. They might have no time to do the homework. C. They might not pay much attention to learning. D. They can not easily focus on learning during the day. 33. What should we think of children's playing around aimlessly? A. It is productive. B. It is helpful. C. It is a bad habit. D. It is a waste of time. 34. Why should parents limit the activities our children attend? A. Because children have no time. B. Because children cannot learn many things. C. Because children do not have enough sleep. D. Because children cannot focus on too many activities. 35. What is the main idea of this passage? A. Don't be children's drivers after school. B. Choose activities for your children wisely. C. Make your children learn as much as possible. D. Let children learn something from various subjects.

Your interests are expanding. 66 Here is the challenge: Kids need to explore the world in new ways, and parents need to protect them from the dangers that are all out in that world. These conflicts can easily set off fireworks in otherwise calm houses. Sometimes conflicts can't be avoided. But by paying attention to the building blocks of successful relationships, you can work towards making home a happy and healthy place for you and your parents. For instance, try to find a time to talk when your parents are not angry, tired, distracted, or hungry. A good time to talk is when you're all relaxed. Timing is everything. If the conversation begins to turn into an argument, you'd better calmly and coolly ask to stop the conversation—for now. 67 Listen to what your parents are saying, and repeat it back to them. This shows them that you're listening. 68 Respect is the building block of good communication. People who respect each other and care about each other's feelings can disagree without getting things ugly. 69 How do you build trust? Trust comes by actually doing what you say you're going to do. Some teens find that doing fun activities with their parents can improve their relationships. Sometimes we forget that parents are more than rule-makers—they're interesting people who like to watch movies and go shopping—just like their teenagers! What do you do if you are trying your best, but your relationship with your parents continues to be rocky? 70 You can find supportive adults, such as a teacher or a coach, who can lend an ear. Remember you can only change your own behavior. Your parents are the only ones who can change theirs. A. It also gives them a chance to clear things up if you're not on the same page. B. You can pick it up again when everyone's more relaxed. C. And then you'll be able to accept what your parents say. D. Faced with the challenge, children don't know what to do.
E. You are more likely to get along with your parents and have more independence if your parents believe in you. F. And your desire to take control of your own life is growing. G. You may consider seeking outside help.

Text 10 The Olympic Games have a long history. The Olympics began more than 2700 years ago in Greece. In the old days, no foreigners or women were able to take part in the Olympics. Women were not allowed to watch the Olympics. At that time, the Olympics only lasted for one day. Now, the Olympic Games have become one of the most important sports meetings in the world. The players all over the world take part in the Olympic Games actively. There are Summer Olympic Games and Winter Olympic Games. Both of them are held every 4 years. Usually the Winter Olympic Games have fewer sports than the Summer Games. The first modern Summer Olympic Games were held in 1896, in Greece. Track and field competition has always been considered the heart of the Summer Olympic Games. China first took part in the Olympics in 1936. We didn't win the first gold medal until 1984, in Los Angeles, USA. The 29th Olympics were held in Beijing, China in 2008. In order to prepare for the Olympics, a lot of hotels, roads and stadiums will have to be built. The first Winter Olympic Games were held in 1924. The goal of both games is: running faster, jumping higher and throwing more strongly. The most important thing in the Olympic Games is not to win but to take part in them.
