第一节 （ 共 15 小题，每小题 2 分，满分 30 分 ） 阅读下面短文，从每题所给的四个选项（A、B、C、D）中，选出最佳选项。
My boss’s daughter was studying in the Philippines. He asked me if my husband and I could take care of her. He thought his daughter would be able to improve her English communication skills in this way. After days of thinking, we agreed. He then brought her here and left after 3 days. I thought that my boss’s daughter was well-mannered, but that was wrong. After a month of staying in the Philippines, she started to show her true colors. When my husband asked her what she wanted for breakfast, she answered him in a rude way. From then on, we experienced fights at home. There was a time when we didn’t talk to her for a week as a punishment of not being good to us. What I hated most was that she didn’t care about other people’s feelings. She ate ahead of us when we were still working and didn’t leave anything for us. So we had to separate her food from ours to avoid such a problem. The worst thing about her was that she shouted at us. I was wondering if she did this to her parents. We told this to her parents, but unfortunately I didn’t think that solved the problem. This situation lasted for almost 8 months. Our patience (耐心) was tested during that time. We tried to teach her everything we could to make her a better person, but I guess 8 months may not be enough. We even tried to understand her and adjust (调整) for her, but it didn’t work . I just hope that she learned something from us and from other Filipinos. 21. This passage is mainly about the writer’s experience of .
A trying to please her boss B. changing a girl’s bad behavior C improving her communication skills D. dealing with a teenage girl staying in her house 22. Why did the boss want his daughter to stay with the writer? A. Because he was too busy to take care of his daughter. B. Because he wanted his daughter to take a holiday there. C. Because he wanted his daughter to improve her English in this way. D. Because he wanted the writer to teach his daughter good manners. 23. The underlined word “that ” in Paragraph 4 refers to . A. being patient with her B. her parents punishing her C. asking her parents about her D. telling her parents about her behavior
Without proper planning, tourism can cause problems．For example, too many tourists can crowd public places that are also enjoyed by the inhabitants(居民) of a country. If tourists create too much traffic, the inhabitants become annoyed and unhappy. They begin to dislike tourists and to treat them impolitely. They forget how much tourism can help the country’s economy. It is important to think about the people of a destination(目的地) country and how tourism affects them. Tourism should help a country, keep the customs and beauty that attract tourists． Tourism should also advance the wealth and happiness of local inhabitants. Too much tourism can be a problem. If tourism grows too quickly, people must leave other jobs to work in the tourism industry. This means that other parts of the country’s economy can suffer. On the other hand, if there is not enough tourism， people can lose jobs. Businesses can also lose money. It costs a great deal of money to build large hotels, airports，air terminals, first－class roads, and other support facilities（设施）needed by tourist attractions. For example, a major international class tourism hotel can cost as much as 50 thousand dollars per room to build. If this room is not used most of the time, the owners of the hotel lose money. Building a hotel is just a beginning．There must be many support facilities as well，including roads to get to the hotel, electricity, sewers to handle waste, and water. All of these support facilities cost money. If they are not used because there are not enough tourists, jobs and money are lost. 24. Which of the following has most probably been discussed in the part that goes before this passage? A. It is very important to develop tourism. B. Building roads and hotels is necessary. C. Support facilities are highly important. D. Planning is very important to tourism. 25. Too much tourism can cause all these problems EXCEPT ________. A. a bad effect on other industries B. a change of tourists’ customs C. over－crowdedness of places of interest D. pressure on traffic
26. Not enough tourism can lead to ________. A. an increase of unemployment (失业) B. a decrease (减退) in tourist attractions. C. the higher cost of support facilities D. a rise in price and a fall in pay. 27. The underlined word “handle” in the last paragraph most probably means _________. A. get in B. pick up C. carry away D. set down
I will never forget what my old headmaster taught me. Normally when you are only 15 years of age you do not remember most of the things that are taught by your teachers. But this particular story is one such lesson that I will never forget. Every time I went away from class, I get reminded of this story. It was a normal Monday morning, and he was making a speech to the students on important things in life and about devoting ourselves to what is important to us. This is how the story went: An old man lived in a certain part of London, and he would wake up every morning and go to the subway. He would get the train right to Central London, and then sit at the street corner and beg. He would do this every single day of his life. He sat at the same street corner and begged for almost 20 years. His house was dirty, and a stench(恶臭)came out of the house and it smelled horrible. The neighbors could not stand the smell any more, so they asked the police officers to clear the place. The officers knocked down the door and cleaned the house. There were small bags of money all over the house that he had collected over the years. The police counted the money, and they soon realized that the old man was a millionaire. They waited outside his house to tell the good news to him. When he arrived home that evening, he was met by one of the officers who told him that there was no need for him to beg any more as he was a rich man now, a millionaire. He said nothing at all; he went into his house and locked the door. The next morning he woke up as usual, went to the subway, got into the train, and sat at the street corner and continued to beg. Obviously, this old man had no great plans, dreams or anything important for his life. We learn nothing from this story except staying insisting on the things we enjoy doing. 28. The headmaster told the story to the students to__________. A. make the students relaxed in the lesson B. remind the students to think deeply C. show how poor the old man was D. encourage the students to become rich 29. After hearing what the officer said, the old man_________. A. believed the officer was playing a joke on him. B. didn't know many people respected him a lot. C. was very angry to find his house broken into. D. was not so excited as the officer had expected. 30. What did the author learn from the story?
A . One should devote himself to his dream. B. The old man was foolish not to stop begging. C. What the headmaster taught was very important. D. People must have a plan before taking action. 31. Which word can best describe the author's attitude towards the old man? A. Pity. B. Disappointment. C. Respect. D. Anger.
You can find language pollution whenever you open a newspaper or turn on your TV set, listen to a popular song at all kinds of advertisements. Language pollution exists almost everywhere and can be seen in the following places: 1. Chinese characters are written in the complex(复杂的)form.Although simplified(简单的) Chinese characters were accepted for use many years ago, it seems that more and more people like Chinese characters written in the complex form. 2. Many goods are produced in China but carry foreign names, which sound strange and have no meaning at all. 3. Words and expressions being used have a bad meaning. “Ba”(霸), which means bully(巨大 的)in Chinese, is one example. Now there are a lot of goods, restaurants, even factories or firms, with “Ba” in their names. 4. There are too many incorrect grammatical expressions. Some films have strange names and incorrect grammatical structures(结构). “Ai ni mei shang liang”, which means “I love you without consulting”, is grammatically incorrect and this kind of expression is now becoming popular. Some language experts point out that language pollution must be done away with, which is an idea shared by many others and myself. 32. The writer of the passage suggests that______. A. something be done to make our language pure B. the Chinese language not have the word “Ba” C. everything have a good name and a good meaning D. everybody try their best to stop language pollution 33. What the writer wants to say is that_______. A. great difference exists between the Chinese characters written in the complex form and simplified form B. language used by our newspapers, TV programs, pop songs and advertisements are getting polluted C. many people agree with the experts on language pollution in China D. some film writers haven’t studied Chinese grammar 34. The underlined expression “done away with” in the last paragraph means______. A. conquered B. destroyed C. cleaned D. swapped
35. Which of the following is the best title of the passage? A. More Attention to Grammar. B. Experts’ Good Advice. C. Films with Strange Names. D. Pollution of our Language. 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。
