An Italian businessman asked Da Vinci to paint a picture of the businessman’s second wife. This is the woman whom can be seen in the Mona Lisa. All in all， the Mona Lisa is a very good example of Da Vinci’s work. Da Vinci used darkness and light in a clever way in the painting. Da Vinci loved science and maths. Right away a person can see that there is a lot of geometry in the Mona Lisa. The face of the Mona Lisa is made of many circles and round shapes like balls. Even her smile can be seen as a small part of a large circle. The woman in the painting is sitting on a balcony，and mountains can be seen behind her. Da Vinci loved to study rocks and mountains，so these can be seen over and in his other paintings. The woman is sitting with her knees to the side. Her head is turned to look out of the painting. Her hands are held together in front of her. This way of sitting is now used by many artists when they are painting a picture of a man or a woman today. 21.The woman in the painting is ________. A．an Italian businesswoman B．the second wife of a businessman C．Leonardo da Vinci’s wife D．a woman from the church 22．Where is the woman in the painting? A．On a balcony. B．On a knee. C．On a mountain. D．On a rock.
23．What can a person see in the painting? A．A lot of geometry. B．Mountains. C．Clever use of light and darkness. D．All of the above. B What picture do you have of the future？Futurologists predict (预言) that life will probably be very different in 2050 in all the fields of activity，from entertainment to technology. First of all ， it seems that TV channels will have disappeared by 2050.Instead，people will choose a program from a “menu” and a computer will send the program directly to the television. As to the environmen t，water will have become one of our most serious problems. In many places，agriculture is changing and they are growing fruit and vegetables to export. This uses a lot of water. Demand for water will increase ten times between now and 2050 and there could be serious shortages.Some futurologists predict that water could be the cause of war if we don’t act now. In transport，cars will run on new and clean fuels and they will go very fast. Cars will have computers to control the speed and there won’t be any accidents. Today， m any cars have computers that tell drivers exactly where they are. By 2050， the computer will control the car and drive it to your place. On the other hand，space planes will take people halfway around the world in two hours. By 2050，space planes will fly all over the world and people will fly from Los Angeles to Tokyo in just two hours. Robots will have replaced people in factories. Many factories already use robots. Big companies prefer robots—they do not ask for pay rises or go on strike，and they work 24 hours a day. By 2050，we will see robots everywhere—in factories，schools， offices，hospitals，shops and homes. 24．How many aspects (方面)does the passage tell us about the differences between today and the year 2050? A．Four. B．Five. C．Three. D．Six. 25．Which of the following is NOT a factor for companies to use robots? A．Robots do not ask for pay rises. B．Robots do not go on strike. C．Robots can work day and night. D．Robots can’t do work as well as human beings do. 26．From the third paragraph we can infer that________. A．cars in 2050 need no fuels B．there will be more accidents in the year 2050 C．it will take people less time to travel in 2050 D．space planes will take the place of cars 27．By saying “Some futurologists predict that water could be the cause of war if we don’t act now”，the writer implies that________. A．war will have become one of our most serious problems in 2050 B．we should take measures to protect water from now on
C．water shortages can be solved by war D．water shortages will be the most serious problem except wars C Mark Twain left school when he was twelve. He had little school education.

第二节 书面表达 参考范文
Good afternoon，teachers and students. I feel honored to make a speech here. The title is “Be a Civilized Student，Construct a Harmonious School” ． As everybody knows，civilized behavior is of great importance for a student. It not only shows our good qualities but also makes ourselves enjoy the harmony of school life，in which we can gain a better result of study. How can we develop civilized behavior？The first important thing we should do is to be a student with good manners and a student always ready to help people in need. Besides，we should keep the school environment clean. Never destroy the plants in our school，such as flowers，trees and grass.Most importantly，we should remember that working hard and obeying the school rules make up the most necessary civilized behavior as a student. That’s all. Thank you!
