B. Unusual hobbies. B. Watching birds.
C. Holiday activities. C. Collecting paintings.
15. What do we know about the man’s parents?
B．some parents choose to have one child for their own freedom C．all parents who choose to have only one child are selfish D．some parents are not allowed to have more than one child 22．By saying “I read a post that made my head spin”，the author wants to________． A．express his or her anger B．complain about his or her headache C．tell us his or her disappointment D．show his or her disagreement． 23．Which of the following words is the closest in meaning to the underlined phrase? A．doubt B．envy C．congratulate D．thank 24．What could be the best title of the article? A．One child or more? B．Selfish or not? C．Hard or easy D．Lonely or not? B How would you like an easy way to earn $2,500? All you have to do is to sit around and wait for your meals. There’s a catch, however. You have to stay in a chicken cage with a stranger for a whole week. There are no books or television or radio for a whole week. There are no books or television or radio for amusement. You can’t leave until the week is up. And a camera will be recording your every move. Two people actually took the job. The idea came from Rob Thompson, a video artist. He wanted to make a film about the way animals are treated. His goal was to raise people’s awareness (认识) of the living conditions of animals that are raised for food. He decided to pay $5,000 out of his own savings to two people who were willing to live like chickens for a week. To Rob’s surprise, quite a few people answered his advertisement. He had interviews and selected Eric, a 24-year-old restaurant worker, and Pam, a 27-year-old chemist. The plan was for them to spend seven days together in a chicken cage that was six feet long and three feet wide. A camera would record their experience, which would take place in an art museum. The week was long and difficult. They slept on a hard wooden floor. They couldn’t stand up without banging their heads. They ate mash(a kind of food for animals) and drink water from a garden pipe. Their only privacy (隐私) was a toilet surrounded by a curtain. There were no sinks, mirrors, or toothbrushes in the cage. Visitors who came here were warned, “Do not feed the humans.” Finally it was over, and Pam and Eric came out of the cage. They had survived the week, and they each had a $2,500 check in their hands. When Rob Thompson opened the cage, Eric came out, changed into clean clothes, and ate a chocolate bar right away. “It’s great for me to be able to stand up.” he said. Pam just changed her clothes and left. After a week of visitors and reporters watching her, she didn’t want to talk to anyone. 25. The underlined word “catch”(in Paragraph 1) probably means _______. A. unsolved problem B. surprising wonder C. unbelievable condition D. hidden difficulty 26. What made it the most difficult for the two to stay in the cage? A. That they had nothing for fun. B. That they didn’t have meat to eat. C. That they couldn’t lie down to sleep in the cage. D. That they had to do almost everything in public. 27. Rob Thompson offered the job in order to___________. A. Make a film about humans and animals B. Advertise for his experiment about animals C. Show how terribly some animals are treated D. Experiment on how long a human can live in a cage 28. What would be the best title for this passage? A. An Easy Way to Earn $2,500 B. Do Not Treat Animals Badly C. Living Like a Chicken D. Getting Along Well Anyway

These small dog-like animals have long been accused (控告)of killing farm animals. They are officially considered as harmful and farmers try to keep their numbers down by
shooting or poisoning them. Farmers can do call on the services of their local hunt to control the fox population . Hunting consists of hunting a fox across the countryside, with a group of specially trained dogs, followed by men and women riding horses. When the dogs eventually catch the fox , they kill it or a hunter shoots it. People who take part in hunting think of it as a sport ; they wear a special uniform of red coats and white trousers , and follow strict codes of behavior. But owning a horse and hunting regularly is expensive, so most hunters are wealthy. It is estimated (估计) that up to 100,000 people watch or take part in fox hunting . But over the last couple of decades the number of people against fox hunting , because they think it is cruel, has risen sharply. Nowadays it is rare for a hunt to succeed without some kind of confrontation between hunters and hunt saboteurs（阻拦者）. Sometimes these incidents lead to violence, but mostly saboteurs fight with the hunt by misleading riders and disturbing the search of the fox’s smell, which the dogs follow. Noisy confrontations between hunters and saboteurs have become so common that they are almost as much a part of hunting as the hunting of foxes itself. But this year supporters of fox hunting face a much bigger threat to their sport. A Labour Party Member of the Parliament, Mike Foster, is trying to get Parliament to pass a new law which will make the hunting of wild animals with dogs illegal. If the law is passed, wild animals like foxes will be protected under the ban in Britain. 33. What is special about fox hunting in Britain? A. It involves the use of a deadly poison. B. It is a costly event which rarely happens. C. The hunters have set rules to follow. D. The hunters have to go through strict training. 34. A new law may be passed by the British Parliament to ________ A. keep farmers from hunting foxes. B. forbid hunting foxes with dogs. C. stop hunting wild animals in the countryside D. prevent fox hunting in large numbers 35. Which can replace the underlined word in paragraph 4? A. reunion(联合) B. conversation(对话) C. conflict(冲突) D. Relationship 第二节（共5小题；每小题2分，满分10分） 根据短文内容,从短文后的选项中选出能填入空白处的最佳选项。选项中有两项为多余选项。 So far, educationists have still failed to design anything more efficient( 有 效 的 ) and reliable than examinations. Some people say examinations test what you know. 36 . They may be a good means of testing memory, or the skills of working rapidly under extreme pressure, but they can tell you nothing about a person’s true ability and talent. 37 . Then what is a good education? 38 . The examination system does anything but that. The student is encouraged to memorize. Examinations do not motivate a student to read widely, but to restrict his reading; they do not enable him to seek more and more knowledge. Meanwhile, they lower the standards of teaching. 39 .Teachers themselves are often judged by examination results and instead of teaching their subjects, they only train their students in exam techniques. Are there any simpler and more effective ways of assessing a person’s true abilities? 40 . Educationists, of course, should take the responsibility to face the challenge and come up with wise solutions. A. The answer is absolutely yes. B. In a word, it’s not a good education. C. Your whole future may be decided on one fateful day.
D. Because they deprive(剥夺) the teacher of all freedoms. E. However, it is common knowledge that they more often do the exact opposite. F. A good education should, among other things, train you to think for yourself. G. Examiners are only human: they get tired and hungry; they make mistakes. 第三部分 英语知识运用（共三节，满分 45 分） 完型填空 （共 20 小题；每小题 1 分，满分 20 分） 阅读下面短文，从短文后各题所给出的四个选项（A．B．C．D）中，选出可以填入空白处的最佳选 项。 Once I went to a railway station near New York.
