Called the City of Water, Venice was built about 1,500 years ago. It's made up of 118 tiny islands in the Adriatic Sea. The area, however, may be in over its head. But now scientists have a new plan to save the city. Because the city was built on soft soil, it has been sinking under the pressure of its own weight. Scientists estimate that Venice sinks at a rate of nearly 2 inches every 100 years. Rising sea levels could make Venice go under even faster, some experts say. Earth's temperature is slowly increasing. That is causing sea ice to melt, which makes the world's waters rise, they say. To keep the city afloat, experts want to pump about 40 billion gallons of sea water beneath Venice. The liquid would expand the sand under the city, which would help support the islands, explains lead scientist Giuseppe Gambolati. Experts are rushing to save Venice because of its rich history. The city was once a strong sea power. "Many famous artists and opera singers have come from Venice. Some of the world's greatest paintings can be found on the city's museum walls," explains Melissa Conn, who is a director of Save Venice Inc. While scientists work to get their water-pumping plan approved, Venice's residents go about their normal routines. When the tide rolls in, the locals have ways of keeping everyone dry. Cafe owners move tables to higher ground, and hotels pass out high boots to guests. Still, dealing with the rising water does not give the city's residents a sinking feeling, just ask Erla Zwingle. She has lived in Venice for 17 years. "There has always been high water in Venice." Zwingle told WR News. "If high water really were a serious problem, people wouldn't be still living here." 56. What's the main reason Venice is sinking? A. Its population is rising. C. The soil it was built on is not solid. B. Its buildings are too weighty. D. Its underground water is being overused.

57. What can we know about Venice from the passage? A. It sinks at a rate of 2 inches every 200 years. C. It has been in a very dangerous situation. 58. According to Melissa Conn, Venice A. is not protecting properly B. deserves the world's attention C. is best-known only for its artists D. has difficulty surviving the rising temperature 59. What's the local residents' attitude towards their sinking city? A. Worried.

B. It has a history of more than 1,500 years. D. It was once a strong sea power. .

B. Disappointed.

C. Concerned.

D. Optimistic.

60. What is the main idea of the passage?

A. Venice is a city with a long history. B. Experts report that Venice sinks at a fast rate. C. Venice was once a powerful country. D. Scientists have a new plan to protect Venice from sinking.

In a study of by-standers, it was found that some people keep on walking. "There is a tendency to decide that no action is needed," says a psychologist, "In order to take action, you have to work against them." Here are some common thoughts that stop you from helping. ●Why should I be the one? I'm probably not the most able person in this crowd. You might think someone older or with more medical knowledge should offer assistance. ●What if he doesn't really need my help? The fear of embarrassment is powerful; no one wants to risk looking foolish in front of others. ●No one else looks concerned. We can follow the people around us, but most people tend to hold back their emotions in public. "If you spot trouble and find yourself explaining inaction, force yourself to stop and evaluate the situation instead of walking on," says the psychologist. "Then retry to involve other people; you don't have to take on the entire responsibility of being helpful. Sometimes it's just a matter of turning to the person next to you and saying, 'It looks like we should do something.' Or asking someone if an ambulance has been called and, if not, to call for one. Once you take action, most people will follow you." 66. According to a study of by-standers, what will some people do when a man ahead falls down on the sidewalk? A. They will call 110. C. They will go on walking. B. They will offer help. D. They will laugh at him.

67. Which is NOT the common thought that stops you from helping others? A. I'm not the very capable person. C. No one else is concerned. 68. In order to offer your timely help, you need to A. go directly to the police station B. get along well with the passers-by who spot the trouble C. ask others for help and call the police D. work against the first thoughts that stop you from offering help 69. We learn from the last paragraph that if we spot trouble, A. we should call the ambulance as soon as we can B. we should turn away in no time C. we should stop and try to make other people help together D. we should take on the whole responsibility

Jack Andraka from Maryland won the grand prize at the 2012 Intel International Science and Engineering Fair. It is the largest high school science competition in the world. The Maryland teenager is the youngest winner of the $ 75,000 prize. He was chosen from among 1,500 students in 70 countries. Jack Andraka invented a test for pancreatic cancer (胰腺癌) . He started to learn it after losing a close family friend to the disease. "I went on the Internet and I found that 85 percent of all pancreatic cancers are found late, when someone has less than a 2% chance of survival," he says, "and I was thinking, 'That's not right. We should be able to do something.'" He found that early discovery is important to increasing the chances of surviving the disease. The Maryland teenager asked to work in a laboratory at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore and was allowed. There he developed a simple paper test, which can recognize the disease in a single drop of blood. His test has proven correct 90% of the time. It also is 100 times more sensitive than other tests. "It costs 3 cents per test, and then it takes only 5 minutes to run," he said. Jack's success wouldn't have been possible without Anirban Maitra, a professor at Johns Hopkins. He was the only person among the 200 researchers Jack wrote to who showed interest in his project. "I was very surprised that this was a 15-year-old boy who was writing this. I wanted to meet this clever young man and see what he wanted to talk about and so I called him over for an interview. " Jack worked in Professor Maitra's laboratory, completing his project in 7 months. The government has given the Maryland teenager patent rights to the pancreatic caner test. He is now talking with companies about developing the test into a simple product. Whatever happens, the professor believes Jack Andraka's name is one we will be hearing again over the next 10 to 20 years. 71. What made Jack Andraka research pancreatic cancer? A. A high school task. C. Losing a friend. B. Doubts about the present test. D. A professor's encouragement. .

第二卷(非选择题,共 35 分) 第四部分:写作(共两节;满分 35 分) 第一节:阅读表达(共 5 小题;每小题 2 分,满分 10 分) 阅读下面短文并回答问题,然后将答案写到答题卡相应的位置上(请注意问题后的词数要求) 。 [1] Everyone has periods in his life when everything seems very. hard. When there's nobody to talk to, the mood is just getting worse and worse. There are some things that may help you lift up your mood. [2] The first thing you should try is socializing(交往). It is very hard, because usually when we feel bad we always lock ourselves at home. But if you try to chat with a friend, the chances of changing your mood into a better one are very good. Just try to avoid thinking the bad side. Instead, try to think forget: We are what we think we are. [3] You should also try doing something only for yourself. This could be something you wanted for a long time: maybe a short trip, a coat, a ring or anything that could lift up your mood. This doesn't have to be expensive. The point of all these is being good to yourself. [4] Giving presents to yourself can lift up your mood. What's more, buying things to others may be a perfect way to feel happy. Think of your friends, choose one person and give him a gift that doesn't have to be something expensive. It may be just a little toy to your poor neighbor's child. Making another person feel happy will make you feel good in your heart. [5] Meeting a positive person should be very useful. Just try to keep your problems off the conversation. The idea here is to get out of your shell and have some communication. Get involved with someone else and your mind will take a turn. 76. What's the main idea of the passage?(no more than 7 words) of your life. Don't

77. What do we usually do when we feel bad?(no more than 6 words)

Instead, we spent the whole day planting trees. In high spirits we talked and smiled all the way to a piece of wasteland which is a 15-minute walk from the school. As soon as we got there, we began to work. Some boys were digging holes while other boys were covering the roots of the young trees with earth. Girls were busy in watering the trees happily.
