Birthdays often involve surprises. But this year's surprise on the birthday of the great British playwright William Shakespeare is surely one of the most dramatic. On April 22, one day before his 441st birthday anniversary, experts discovered that one of the most recognizable portraits of William Shakespeare is a fake. This means that we no longer have a good idea of what Shakespeare looked like. "It's very possible that many pictures of Shakespeare might be unreliable because many of them are copies of this one," said an expert from Britain's National Portrait Gallery. The discovery comes after four months of testing using X-rays, ultraviolet light, microphotography and paint samples. The experts from the gallery say the image —commonly known as the "Flower portrait"— was actually painted in the 1800s, about two centuries after Shakespeare's death. The art experts who work at the gallery say they also used modern chemistry technology to check the paint on the picture. These checks found traces of paint dating from about 1814. Shakespeare died in 1616, and the date that appears on the portrait is 1609. "We now think the portrait dates back to around 1818 to 1840. This was when there was a renewed interest in Shakespeare's plays," Tarnya Cooper, the gallery's curator (馆长), told the Associated President. The fake picture has often been used as a cover for collections of his plays. It is called the Flower portrait because one of its owners, Desmond Flower, gave it to the Royal Shakespeare Company. "There have always been questions about the painting," said David Howells, curator for the Royal Shakespeare Company. "Now we know the truth, we can put the image in its proper place in the history of Shakespearean portraiture." Two other images of Shakespeare, are also being studied as part of the investigation and the results will come out later this month. 56. What makes the birthday of Shakespeare dramatic this year? A. It was found that he painted a portrait in 1814 instead of in 1609. B. The Flower portrait has been found to be a fake. C. Three portraits of Shakespeare are being tested to identify a real one. D. It was found that there was a renewed interest in Shakespeare's plays around 1818 to 1840. 57. Which statement is True according to the passage? A. Portraits of Shakespeare are all unreliable. B. "Flower portrait " was a portrait of Shakespeare given to Desmond Flower. C. 1814 might be when the portrait was drawn. D. The Flower portrait is not often used as a cover for Shakespeare's play. 58. The best title for this passage is _________. A. Birthdays often involve surprises B. The surprise on the 441st birthday of Shakespeare C. One portrait of Shakespeare is a fake D. How can we know Shakespeare's appearance?
B I needed to buy a digital camera, one that was simply good at taking good snaps, maybe occasionally for magazines．Being the cautious type, I fancied a reliable brand. So I went on the net, spent 15 minutes reading product reviews on good websites, wrote down the names of three top recommendations and headed for my nearest big friendly camera store．There in the cupboard was one of the cameras on my list. And it was on special offer. Oh joy. I pointed at it and asked an assistant, “Can I have one of those?” He looked perturbed 不安） “Do you want to try it first?” he （ . said. It didn't quite sound like a question. “Do I need to?” I replied. “There's nothing wrong with it?” This made him look a bit insulted and I started to feel bad． “No, no．But you should try it,” he said encouragingly. “Compare it with the others.” I looked across at the others: shelves of similar cameras placed along the wall, offering a wide range of slightly different prices and discounts, with each company selling a range of models based around the same basic box, With so many models to choose from, it seemed that I would have to spend hours weighing X against Y, always trying to take Z and possibly H into account at the same time．But when I had finished, I would still have only the same two certainties that I had entered the store with: first, soon after I carried my new camera out of the shop it would be worth half what I paid for it; and second, my wonderful camera would very quickly be replaced by a new model. But something in the human soul whispers that you can beat these traps by making the right choice, the clever choice, the wise choice．In the end, I agreed to try the model I had chosen. The assistant seemed a sincere man. So I let him take out my chosen camera from the cupboard, show how it took excellent pictures of my fellow shoppers…and when he started to introduce the special features, I interrupted to ask whether I needed to buy a carry - case and a memory card as well. Why do we think that new options still offer us anything new? Perhaps it is because they offer an opportunity to avoid facing the fact that our real choices in this culture are far more limited than we would like to imagine. 59. The shop assistant insisted that the writer should ________. A. try the camera to see if there was anything wrong with it B. compare the camera he had chosen with the others C. get more information about different companies D. trust him and stop asking questions 60. What does the writer mean by “it would be worth half what I paid for it”( Paragraph 2）? A. He should get a 50% discount. B. The price of the camera was unreasonably high. C. The quality of the camera was not good. D. The camera would soon fall in value. 61. The writer decided to try the model he had chosen because he ________. A. knew very little about it B. didn't trust the shop assistant C. wanted to make sure the one he chose would be the best
D. had a special interest in taking pictures of his fellow shoppers 62. It can be inferred from the passage that in the writer's opinion, ________. A. waste too much money on cameras B. cameras have become an important part of our daily life C. we don't actually need so many choices when buying a product D. famous companies care more about profit than quality C Cameron thought of himself as merely organized. He certainly did not consider that he took great pains over anything, he did just enough to get it right. Exactly right, of course, for he was fond of telling his staff, “if it’s not exactly right, it’s wrong.” Occasionally a worker might be sad on hearing these words, because it meant another hour or so of going over the same bit of work, correcting the mistakes which Cameron had patiently pointed out, and doing the corrections exactly right of course. Strangely enough, his department had the reputation for performing the highest quality work in the company, and it was seen, and not only by those who worked in the department, as a sort of elite(出类拔萃)unit. Those programs that had to work first time, straight out of the box, Cameron’s men got those. “It’s mission(任务)critical—give it to Cameron” was almost a catch—phrase with his team. It helped that Cameron was not merely particular about things. He wanted things done just so, not because of a personal taste, but because he had discovered through patient experimentation that this was the best way for it to be done. In Cameron’s dictionary, “Take as long as you want” meant that you could work on your task not just in office hours, but that evening, and late into the early hours of the following morning if you so desired. But the project had to be in by its completion date, and yes, done exactly right. Or you did it again. But he would always be regarded, and not least by himself, as someone who had failed to meet requirements, one of those who just couldn’t cut it. You had to face it, if you were not working for Cameron, you were second best. So when word got out that Cameron had messed up big time, the news was greeted with a mixture of sympathy, and entire relief that this perfection too was human. 63. Cameron was a ___________. A. software programmer C. quality controller A. he had a good team C. he didn’t mind working late 65. Working for Cameron, people felt that ___________ . A. Cameron was very particular about things C. they were part of an elite responsible 66. What can we learn about Cameron?
B. head of department D. a chief scientist B. Cameron was critical D. Cameron’s work was error—free B. their mission was critical D. Cameron was patient and
64. “Mission-critical” work given to Cameron because __________.
A. He didn’t allow for any mistake. C. He encouraged work to be done in office hours. D
B. He never got things Wrong. D. He was often misunderstood.
In this section, we are concerned with reconstructive memory. Suppose you are trying to remember some event. Reconstructive memory would involve combining the pieces of information about the event you can remember with your relevant knowledge and experience to reconstruct what probably happened. The concept of reconstructive memory is related to schema theory. A schema is an organized package of information containing your knowledge about the world; it helps us to make sense of it all. Schemas are stored in long-term memory. Your schemas tell you that if you were wearing a T-shirt it was likely to be summer. Bower, Black, and Turner showed that most people share similar schemas. Most people listed the following as the most important events associated with having a restaurant meal: sitting down, looking at the menu, ordering, eating, paying the bill, and leaving the restaurant. In the early 1930s, it was generally assumed that memory simply involves remembering the information presented to us. However Bartlett argued that memory was often more complex than that, in that previous knowledge in the form of schemas has influence on our memory. He thought what was of key importance was to ask participants to memorize a text selected to produce conflict between its contents and their knowledge of the world. As a result, the participants would connect their own schemas to the contents. This would result in misrepresentation of the material. For example, if people read a story taken from a different culture, then this would contain words and concepts that were foreign It would be likely that the participants' previous knowledge would influence the way this information was remembered, making it more acceptable from the standpoint of their own cultural background. Bartlett's work suggested that the process of remembering things is an active reconstruction of the bits that are stored. What is involved here has been compared to using a few dinosaur bones to reconstruct what the dinosaur probably looked like. When you learn something, it is actually only elements of the experience that are stored. So reconstructions are made by combining the real elements of a memory with your knowledge of the world. Our prejudices will influence what we think we have seen, and how we later recall the information. 67. How does the author explain the schema theory in Paragraph l? A. By explaining principles in daily life. C. By reporting experiment results. 68. What is schema? A. An organized package of information that makes sense to people. B. Relevant information showing your understanding of the world. C. Pieces of information about the event you can remember. D. The most important events associated with each other. 69. Bartlett believed that ___________ . A. earlier experience would affect what people recalled B. memory was more complex than what schema theory supported
B. By comparing different events. D. By giving common examples.
C. conflict existed in people's knowledge of the world D. people tended to make information acceptable 70. What is the passage mainly about? A. What helps regain memory. B. How memory is reconstructed. C. What the real elements of memory are. D. How schema theory influences memory. 第Ⅱ 卷( 非选择题 共 35 分 ) 第四部分 一词。 Time, a faithful company of our life, is a universal topic. People are always curious about what it is, how it travels and who it meets. Stephen Hawking, one of the world’s smartest physicists, once said, “I’m fascinated by time.” Many of us are, and the popularity of time travel novels, movies and TV series has proved that. After Palace and Startling by Each Step achieved astonishing ratings last year, Palace 2 aired on January 20, attracting time travel fans back to TV. Woody Allen’s movie Midnight in Paris achieved great success. It was nominated for Best Picture, Directing, Original Screenplay and Art Direction for the 2012 Academy Awards. Dream of heroism Time travel TV series and movies connect both today and the past, thus offering room for imagination. Imagination creates a chance for the young to fulfill a dream that is hard to achieve in reality. Chinese writer Xi Juan is a pioneer of time travel stories in China. In 1993 she published a love story about a young woman time traveling to ancient times. The leading role’s modern personality and perception of love help her win the heart of a cool, handsome martial art master. Such a plot satisfies female fans’ love fantasy. Starting from the late 1990s, novels about men traveling back to the past prevailed (盛行), with A Step into the Past as the most popular example. In these stories, the male leading roles accomplish great things with their modern skills and wisdom. It is usually “a dream of heroism come true”, along with enviable romances. Eye candy “I’m hooked by the shows because they are characterized by dramatic and poetic love and have eye-pleasing actors, ” Xia Xiaoyan, who works for a foreign-owned enterprise in Shanghai, explained her love for time travel TV series. Her comment echoes a 2011 survey by Great Marketing Research Co Ltd in China. When asked about what is so appealing about time travel TV series, 21 percent of respondents answered, “Those attractive characters.” A bigger reason behind the popularity of time travel stories, however, is the relaxation they 任务型阅读 (共 10 小题,每小题 1 分,共 10 分) 请认真阅读下列短文,并根据所读内容在文章后表格中填入最恰当的单词。注意：每空
offer, according to the survey. Cai Yinong agrees, “Many people are facing tremendous pressures in their fast-paced lives, so this genre is more relaxing than other shows as it provides people with a terrific outlet to escape reality,” Cai told China Daily. Cultural homesickness “Which dynasty would you like to live in if you could travel to the past?” asked a survey launched by Shanghai University and Shanghai Social Science Association last December. About 60 percent of the 2,543 respondents chose Tang Dynasty, while Qing Dynasty, and the Spring and Autumn and Warring States periods were the other top two destinations. The survey result reflects people’s definition of the good days: prosperous economy and culture, steady society, fair and uncorrupted politics, and opening up to the outside world. As for the movie Midnight in Paris, it features modernity versus cultural homesickness. The New York Times commented, “The past seems so much more vivid, more substantial, than the present. The good old days are so attractive because we were not around, however much we wish we were.” Time travel wins fans Stephen Hawking shows great interest in time.

There are many difficulties and problems we can’t overcome with only our own efforts. Besides, we need friends to share our joys and sorrows, otherwise we will feel lonely. What is true friendship? A good friend is someone who respects you and who you respect. As the saying goes, “A friend in need is a friend indeed.” True friends are those who never desert you when you are in need. On the contrary, they will offer you sincere and selfless help even at the cost of their own interests. Moreover, they will encourage you to stick to what is right and tell us not to do what is wrong or illegal. In my opinion, true friendship is largely based on supporting each other. Whenever we have problems, we never hesitate to offer support to each other. Besides, we are supposed to help and trust each other. In conclusion, true friendship will stand the test of time.
