Introductory Chemistry was taught at Duke University for many years by Professor Bonk.One year,two guys took the class and did pretty well on all the quizzes and mid-terms.They each had a solid A.These two friends were so confident in going into the final that the weekend before the final week,despite the Chemistry final being on Monday,they decided to go to the University of Virginia to party with some friends. They had a great time there.However,with their hangovers(宿醉) and tiredness,they overslept all day Sunday and didn’t make it back to Duke until early Monday morning.Rather than taking the final then,they found Professor Bonk after the final and explained to him how they missed the final.They told him they went up to the University of Virginia for the weekend and had planned to come back in time to study,but they had a flat tire on the way back and didn’t have a spare.So they were late getting back to campus. Bonk thought this over and agreed that they could take the final the following day.The two guys,happily and relieved,studied that night and went in for the exam the next day at the time that Bonk had told them.He
placed them in separate rooms and handed each of them a test booklet.He told them to begin. They looked at the first problem which was something simple about solution(溶解).It was worth 5 points. “ Cool, ” they thought, “ this is going to be an easy final. ” They then turned the page.They were unprepared,however,for what they saw on it.The question contained only two words:(95 points) Which tire? 1.The two guys decided to go to the University of Virginia because A.they were afraid of the final B.there was a party there C.the final would be held there D.they thought they can pass the final easily 答案 D B.On Monday. . C.On Tuesday. D.On Saturday. 2.When did they take the final at last? A.On Sunday. 答案 C 3.After the final,they .
A.may apology to Professor Bonk B.must have the same scores C.wouldn’t be confident in the exam D.would feel happy and relieved 答案 A . 4.From the passage we can learn/conclude that A.he who makes no mistakes makes nothing B.he is wise that is honest C.one never loses anything by politeness D.think twice before you do 答案 B B Feeling lonely can make you sick.Doctors have long known that loneliness is associated with heart troubles,viral infections,and higher death rates.What they didn’t know is how this feeling causes illness.A study in the September issue of the online journal Genome Biology suggests that loneliness actually affects the very core of our bodies—our genes. In a small population of patients,researchers surveyed more than 20,000 genes using DNA skills to compare how the genes of lonely and nonlonely individuals express themselves in molecular(分子的) processes and,ultimately,in personal health.They found that gene expression is different at 209 sites in chronically lonely people and that many of those changes fit a pattern of elevated immune activation,inflammation(炎 症 ),and depressed response to infection. “ We now have a molecular framework for understanding the relationship between social experience and physical health,”explains the study’s lead author,Steve Cole. The study found that loneliness decreases the response of some body receptors,cutting off the immune control and anti-inflammatory effects of the stress-related hormone that also helps regulate the conversion of carbohydrates(碳水化合物)to energy.The depressed response of the stress-related hormone concurs with the known effects of loneliness and provides a potential target for treatment. This study—the first to link feelings with gene changes—is “in some sense groundbreaking,”says Emma Adam,an associate professor at Northwestern University.“It fills in the black box.” According to John Cacioppo,an author of the study and a psychologist from the University of Chicago,the work suggests that loneliness is a warning sign,much like physical pain.“This very process of feeling bad because of disconnection contributes to what it means to be human,”he says.“It makes us care for other people and want to reconnect when we’re disconnected.”

7.Which of the following is the best suggestion to lonely people? A.Go to hospital to have a medical examination once a week. B.Take more social activities. C.Take more physical exercise. D.Ring your friends when you need their help. 答案 B B.A Survey on Loneliness D.Genes and Loneliness C Some weight-loss camps,which are rare in China just a few years ago,have sprouted in Beijing, Qingdao,Shenzhen,and other cities.Today about 15 percent of adults,or 200 million Chinese,are reportedly overweight.Of these,90 million—about 7 percent—are obese(过胖的). Experts say the obesity epidemic is spreading to children,though more slowly than in adults.The trend,they say,will have a huge impact on the health of China’s citizens and economy.“We’re seeing a very large proportion of children and adolescents who are quite heavy and aren’t moving much,”said Barry Popkin,a nutrition professor.Popkin carries out an ongoing health-and-nutrition survey of 16,000 households in China.He says more kids today are overeating and putting on weight “quite quickly”.In just ten years China’s childhood obesity rate has doubled,with the greatest gains coming in urban areas. “In big cities it’s a big problem.” Some experts blame the extra fat on a range of factors,many of them tied to China’s rapidly changing economy and culture.The diets of Chinese adults and children are far higher in calorie-laden meat, fish,eggs,dairy products,fat,and sugars than ever before.In addition,kids—especially city dwellers— are more sedentary today and spend more time indoors in front of homework,television,computer games,and the Internet. Shuwen Ng,a health economist,says that kids in China now have pocket money,and they spend a portion of it on junk food.Ng adds that advertising and peer groups influence kids’ food choices.Certain foods,such as new candies or fast food,have attractive features. China’s childhood obesity rate still lags that of the United States,where some 15 percent of kids are said to be obese.But the long-term effects are equally serious. 9.According to the passage we know . A.weight-loss camps have been very popular in China six years ago B.about 290 million Chinese are overweight in China in all C.in China childhood obesity rate in rural areas is lower than that in major cities D.America’s childhood obesity rate is lower than China’s 8.What’s the best title for the passage? A.Feeling Lonely Can Make You Sick C.Why Loneliness Is Bad for You 答案 C
C . B.earnest C.absent . D.inactive

11.According to the passage we can infer that
A.obesity explosion in China will affect the United States B.there are great differences in kids’ food choices now C.junk food contributes to childhood obesity D.city children eat more than rural children 答案 C 12.What’s the best title for the passage? A.Chinese Childhood Obesity Explosion B.Weight-loss Camps in China C.Obesity Explosion’s Impacts on Chinese Economy D.Obesity Explosion in China and America 答案 A D Vicious and Dangerous Sports Should Be Banned by Law When you think of the tremendous technological progress we have made,it’s amazing how little we have developed in other respects.We may speak contemptuously of the poor old Romans because they relished the orgies of slaughter that went on in their arenas.We may despise them because they mistook these goings on for entertainment.We may forgive them condescendingly because they lived 2,000 years ago and obviously knew no better.But are our feelings of superiority really justified?Are we any less bloodthirsty?Why do boxing matches,for instance,attract such universal interest?Don’t the spectators who attend them hope they will see some violence?Human beings remain as bloodthirsty as ever they were.The only difference between ourselves and the Romans is that while they were honest enough to admit that they enjoyed watching hungry lions tearing people apart and eating them alive,we find all sorts of sophisticated arguments to defend sports which should have been banned long ago;sports which are quite as barbarous as,say,public hangings or bearbaiting. It really is incredible that in this day and age we should still allow hunting or bull-fighting,that we should be prepared to sit back and watch two men batter each other to pulp in a boxing ring,that we should be relatively unmoved by the sight of one or a number of racing cars crashing and bursting into flames.Let us not deceive ourselves.Any talk of “the sporting spirit” is sheer hypocrisy.People take part in violent sports because of the high rewards they bring.Spectators are willing to pay vast sums of money to see violence.A world heavyweight championship match,for instance,is front page news.Millions of people are disappointed if a big fight is over in two rounds instead of fifteen.They feel disappointed because they have been deprived of the exquisite pleasure of witnessing prolonged torture and violence. Why should we ban violent sports if people enjoy them so much?You may well ask.The answer is simple:they are uncivilized.For centuries man has been trying to improve himself spiritually and emotionally— admittedly with little success.But at least we no longer tolerate the sight madmen cooped up in cages,or public floggings of any of the countless other barbaric practices which were common in the past.Prisons are no longer the grim forbidding places they used to be.Social welfare systems are in operation in many parts of the world.Big efforts are being made to distribute wealth fairly.These changes have come about not because human beings have suddenly and unaccountably improved,but because positive steps were taken to change the law.The law is the biggest instrument of social change that we have and it may exert great civilizing influence.If we banned dangerous and violent sports,we would be moving one step further to
improving mankind.We would recognize that violence is degrading and unworthy of human beings. 13.The main idea of this passage is . A.vicious and dangerous sports should be banned by law B.people are willing to pay vast sums of money to see violence C.to compare two different attitudes towards dangerous sports D.people are bloodthirsty in sports 答案 A . 14.That the author mentions the old Romans is B.to give an example C.to show human beings in the past know nothing better D.to indicate human beings are used to bloodthirsty 答案 D B.Five. C.Six. . D.Seven. 15.How many dangerous sports does the author mention in this passage? A.Three. 答案 B
A.to compare the old Romans with today’s people
16.The purpose of the author in writing this passage is
A.that,by banning the violent sports,we human beings can improve ourselves B.that,by banning the dangerous sports,we can improve the law C.that we must take positive steps to improve social welfare system D.to show law is the main instrument of social change 答案 A Ⅳ.短文填词 阅读下面短文，根据以下提示： （1）汉语提示， （2）首字母提示， （3）语境提示，在每个空格内填入一个适当 的英语单词，并将该词完整地写在右边相对应的横线上。所填单词要求意义准确，拼写正确。 Fire can help people in many ways.Fire can heat water,warm your house,give light and cook food. fire can burn things too.Nobody knows how people began to use fire.One story from Australia t a very long time ago.He went up to the sun by a rope and fire down.Today people know how to make a fire matches.Children sometimes like to play with them.But matches can be very many people every year.

参考范文 Pay Enough Attention to Our Environment From June 1st,2008,China will ban ultra-thin plastic bags from supermarkets and stores.Meanwhile,one of the representatives of the People’s Congress,Chen Fei,gave each representative of the national minority nationalities a bamboo basket and a handkerchief to respond to the order. As we can see in Picture 1,plastic bags have caused a severe waste of resources.They get easily broken and are left abandoned everywhere,ending up as litter.Worse still,the low rate of recycling results in the badly polluted environment. Fortunately,people have realized the importance of protecting environment and taken effective measures to reduce the consumption of plastic bags using bamboo baskets,as we can see in Picture 2.In my opinion,the ban on plastic bags will bring China in line with a growing international trend to cut the use of plastic bags.Besides,rubbish has been acknowledged as one of the country’s biggest environmental challenges and the ban on plastic bags is one of the solutions to the problem.
