On my way in, a(n) 36 man approached me and asked, “Can you spare some 37 ?” I smiled, and said no. He smiled back. Then I bought one hamburger and enjoyed my meal, but in the back of my mind, I wondered whether the homeless man was 38 . After I finished my meal I decided to order another one for him. At the 39 I ordered a hamburger and also a hot chocolate, because it was 40 outside, and I thought it would help warm him up. They 41 me the hot chocolate first and as I waited for my hamburger, I noticed the homeless man was standing right beside me. I looked at him and smiled, “This hot chocolate is 42 you.” He replied like a 43 ，“Thank you so much. That?s very kind of you.” I always believe no matter how hardup (缺钱) I am, there are always those who are 44 off than I. When you help someone, it?s not always about 45 but about love.

Such activities help them to 48 that being frightened doesn?t mean that they have to lose 49 . The recent fashion for jumping from bridges fastened to a length of elastic (有弹性 的) rope, known as “bungee jumping”, has now been 50 by over one million people worldwide, and interest in it is continuing to 51 . Before the special elastic rope tightens (拉紧) around them, jumpers reach speeds of nearly 160 kilometers per hour. First-timers are usually too 52 to open their mouths, and when they are finally lowered 53 to the ground, they walk around with broad 54 on their faces, saying repeatedly how exciting it was. However, for some people, it is only the embarrassment (难 堪) of refusing to 55 at the last minute that finally persuades them to conquer their fear of heights and push themselves off into space. 48．A．admit 49．A．control 50．A．tried B．imagine B．temper B．played C．learn C．hope C．performed D．think D．trust D．jumped

四、阅读理解（共 20 小题；每小题 2 分，满分 40 分） 阅读下列短文，从每题所给的四个选项（A、B、C 和 D）中，选出最佳选项，并在答题卡 上将该项涂黑。 A Outside our hotel in Ho Chi Ming City, Vietnam, a seemingly ancient woman waited beside the door with her hand outstretched (张开的). Every day I put my hand in hers as our eyes met. She never failed to return my smile, my grasp, and my greeting. On the last day of our visit, I found myself alone on a busy corner across the street from our hotel. Bicycles and motorbikes rushed in front of me. As I hesitated on the sidewalk, I felt a hand on my elbow and looked down to see the smile of my small beggar friend looking up at me. She nodded her head toward the street, indicating that she would take me across. Together, we moved slowly into the chaos. Then we moved on toward the sidewalk, where she pulled my face down to hers, kissed me on both cheeks, and then left, still smiling and waving back to me. Traveling in poorer nations, I have witnessed a variety of ways to deal with beggars. The most common response of tourists faced with the poverty-stricken is to ignore them and focus their eyes elsewhere. I have seen people push away an outstretched hand in angry annoyance. A few may drop a few coins into the hand in a hurry, hoping that other ragged pursuers won?t immediately appear on the scene. For many reasons, giving money is not the best response to an outstretched hand. Many world travelers have discovered that the greatest gift they can give is their time and respect. Everyone needs recognition, to be seen as worthy of being known, to feel appreciated and loved. And I believe that everyone is worthy and worth knowing. 56．The woman beggar helped the author go across the busy street because ______. A．the author gave her material assistance B．the author treated her in a kind and friendly way C．the author would help her as a reward D．the author was a foreigner 57．From the story, what position of the beggars in the author?s mind might be? A．Equal. B．Superior. C．Lower. D．Valuable. 58．According to the author, the most important things beggars really need are ______. A．mercy and pity B．money and food C ． smile and greeting D．attention and respect 59．The purpose of the passage is to ______. A．show how poor the beggars are in Vietnam B．offer some advice on dealing with begging C．express what we should offer to the beggars D．describe an experience with a beggar B

Your company, Cosmo Books Ltd., offered this set (eight books of plays and two books of poetry) at what was claimed to be a ?remarkable? price: fifteen pounds and fifty pence, including postage and packing. I had wanted a set of Shakespeare?s plays and poems for some time, and these books in red imitation leather, looked particularly attractive; so I sent for them. Two weeks later, the books arrived, together with a set of the complete works of Charles Dickens which I had not ordered. So I returned the Dickens books to you, with a cheque for fifteen pounds and fifty pence for the works of Shakespeare. Two more weeks passed. Then there arrived on my door step a second set of the works of Shakespeare, the same set of novels by Dickens and a six-book set of the plays of Moliere, in French. Since I do not read French, these were of no use to me at all. I wrote to you at the end of August of last year. You did not reply to that letter. Since then, a new set of books has arrived every two weeks. The books are still all in their boxes, in the garage, and my car has to stand in the rain outside. I have no room for any more books, and even if I read from now on until the Last Judgement, I should not finish reading all the books that you have sent me. Please send no more books, send no more bills, send no more angry letters demanding payment. Just send one large lorry and take all the books away, leaving me only with the one set of the complete works of Shakespeare for which I have paid. Yours faithfull y, Sim on Walker 63．The advertisement that Mr. Walker saw in the Morning Mail was for ______. A．an unlimited number of Cosmo Books B．a set of 10 books of the works of Shakespeare C．a book containing all the plays and poems of Shakespeare D．fifteen pounds and fifty pence 64．Mr. Walker answered the advertisement because he ______. A．he wanted a set of Shakespeare?s works, and this set was cheap, and looked attractive B．he claimed that the books were being offered at a remarkable price C．he had ordered the set and had been waiting for them to come for some time D．the set he already had was not particularly attractive 65．Another two weeks passed, then there arrived ______. A．three sets of books and a cheque for fifteen pounds and fifty pence B．a third set of Shakespeare, a second of Dickens and a set of Moliere
C．three sets of books including one in French D．the same set of Shakespeare, the novels of Moliere and a set of Dickens 66．Mr. Walker did not want the novels of Dickens because he ______. A．had not ordered them and had already sent one set back B．only wanted one set of Dickens, not two sets C．could not afford to buy his novels as well as his plays D．had not ordered them and could not read French 67．Simon Walker wrote the letter to ______. A．show his anger to Cosmo Books Ltd. B．complain about getting books he didn?t want C．advise readers not to order books from Cosmo Books Ltd. D．urge for the final solution to the problem with the unwanted books D What makes Americans spend nearly half their food dollars on meals away from home? The answers lie in the way Americans live today. During the first few decades of the twentieth century, canned and other convenience foods freed the family cook from full-time duty at the kitchen range. Then, in the 1940s, work in the wartime defense plants took more women out of the home than ever before, setting the pattern of the working wife and mother. Unless family members pitch in with food preparation, women are not fully liberated from that chore. It?s easier to pick up a bucket of fried chicken on the way home from work or take the family out for pizzas or burgers than to start opening cans or heating up frozen dinners after a long, hard day. Also nowadays, the rising divorce rate means that there are more single working parents with children to feed. And many young adults and elderly people, as well as unmarried and divorced mature people, live alone rather than as a part of a family unit and don?t want to bother cooking for one. Fast food is appealing because it is fast, it doesn?t require any dressing up, it offers a “fun” break in the daily routine, and the fee seems small. It can be eaten in the car—sometimes picked up at a drive-in window without even getting out—or on the run. Even if it is brought home to eat, there will never be any dirty dishes to wash because of the handy disposable wrappings. Children, especially, love fast food because it?s finger food, no struggling with knives and forks, no annoying instructions from adults about table manners. 68．Americans enjoy fast food mainly because ______. A．it can be eaten in the car B．it is much more tasty than home-made food C．one only uses his fingers while eating it D．it is time-saving and convenient 69．Many Americans are eating out and not cooking at home nowadays because ______. A．they want to make a change after eating the same food for years at home B．the food made outside home tastes better than food cooked at home C．many of them live alone or don?t like taking trouble to cook D．American women refuse to cook at home due to woman?s liberation movement 70．According to the text, a drive-in window is a ______. A．car window from which you can see the driver B．window in the restaurant from which you get your meal in the car C．place where you check the mechanic condition of your car
D．entrance where you return the used plates after eating 71．The expression “pitch in with” (Line 2, Para. 2.) probably means “______”. A．complain B．enjoy C．help
E Most people look forward to retirement as a time when they can finally take up activities that they never had the time or energy to pursue before. But some recent studies on people in their golden years are disturbing: they suggest that retirees are more likely to suffer from depression and possibly higher rates of other diseases such as heart disease and high blood pressure. That?s why a new study of French workers is welcome news. Led by Hugo Westerlund, a professor of psychology at Stockholm University, the study of more than 14,000 workers found lower rates of depression and fatigue (疲劳) in people after they got retired than while they were still employed. The scientists followed the employees of the French national gas and electric company for 14 years. They found in the year immediately after retirement, the volunteers reported 40% fewer depressive symptoms than they had in the year before their retirement. The researchers also found an 81% drop in reports of both mental and physical fatigue over the same time period. Clearly, said Westerlund, much of these decrease in physical and mental fatigue can be traced back to relief from the stresses of work. The decline in depressive symptoms suggests that retirement may be having a positive mental effect, too, which may have a lot to do with the generous pensions (养老金) that French workers enjoy. Most retirees in that country still benefit from about 80% of their yearly salaries. “The economic or financial situation in retirement is very important,” Westerlund says. “We don?t know if the decrease in fatigue and depressive symptoms is because of the removal of something bad while in work or the addition of something good while in retirement. But no matter what reason there is, if life in retirement is not comfortable, then we won?t see the improvements we did.” However, in European nations like France, governments are considering changes to pension plans, which may affect retirees? health after they leave their jobs—with less of a financial safety net, workers may no longer seem so mentally and physically happy to be out of work. 72．According to some recent studies, retired people may ______. A．take up activities they had wished to pursue before B．have depression and higher rates of other diseases C．suffer from lower rates of depression and fatigue D．lead a happier life with their plenty of pensions 73．Westerlund?s group found that in the year just after the retirement most retired French workers ______. A．seemed to be less happy mentally and physically B．were badly thirsty to go back to work again C．felt much less tired both mentally and physically D．appeared very anxious about being out of work 74．What does the word “improvements” in paragraph 5 refer to? A．The decrease in fatigue and depressive symptoms. B．The removal of something bad while in work. C．The economic or financial situation in retirement.
D．The comfortable life in retirement. 75．Retirement may make people happier with ______. A．more activities to join in B．changes to pension plans C．more of a financial safety net D．a more harmonious family life 五、写作（共两个写作任务，满分 35 分） 写作一（满分 15 分） 请结合材料，按要求用英文写作，词数不少于 60。 It?s reported that monitoring data showed the Air Quality Index in most parts of Beijing reached 500, the maximum pollution level.

Cars and factories give off too much air pollution. Too much dirt arises from construction sites. Use less cars, clean the air from factories, reduce dirt in the air and plant more trees or the hazy weather will continue. Writing task 2 Dear Sir/ Madam, I am Li Hua from Class One, Senior Three. I?m writing in reply to the notice for host families. I think I have several reasons to accommodate one foreign friend. First, I believe my English is good enough to communicate with foreigners.
