第三部分 阅读理解 阅读下面材料， 从所给的 4 个选项 A,B,C 和 D 中选出最佳选项，并在答题纸上将该选项标号 涂黑。 (A) Dear Deidre, I am 17. Further education is not for me. I want to be out seeing the world in the army. My mum and dad say they will cut me off and have nothing to do with me if I go into the military. They have other plans for me. My friends all laugh at me and say I won’t ever get on. I know I am not the fittest guy in the world but I thought that would come with the training. I am now asking myself if I should just give up my lifelong ambitions and get the sort of job my parents approve of. I don’t want to look back with regrets but sometimes I think maybe they are right and know more than me. Samson Dear Samson, It’s your life and your future. Your parents mean well, and may be fearful of what could happen to you if you are posted to a danger zone, but you must decide this by yourself. At least talk to an army recruitment office about what is involved and about how fit you need to be. Do your research. Find out everything you can about what choices you will have. Then go for it. Start a sensible eating and exercise plan right away. If you are motivated you can get reasonably fit in a few weeks. Tell your parents and friends you want to give it a try. If you still feel it’s right for you, then apply. If it isn’t for you, at least you won’t regret for the rest of your life. Parents and friends may say, “I told you so”, but you will know that you’ve followed your dream and made up your own mind about the sort of career for you. Talk to At East which is an independent and confidential organization providing advice and support for those who are in the military and those who would like to be. They can explain when you are allowed to leave and how much attention you have to give. Deidre 61. Why do Samson’s friends laugh at him? A. He has no independent opinion B. He can’t break away from his parents. C. He is not fit enough to join the army D. He is in trouble now. 62. According to Deidre, Samson’s parents wouldn’t like him to join the army because _______. A. they thought it may not be safe B. they wanted their son to stay with them C. they know he was not fit enough D. they believed he would regret doing so 63. It can be inferred from the first letter that Samson is _______. A. puzzled now B. an independent guy C. disappointed with his parents D. not popular with his friends 64. The advice that Deidre offers to Samson doesn’t include __________. A. seeking some advice from an army recruitment office B. deciding his life and future by himself C. consulting At Ease on what to do
D. turning his dream of joining the army into reality 65. If the two letters are taken from a newspaper, which part may they appear? A. Helping B. Education C. Military D. News (B) The word I'm going to introduce to you today is — phubbing. Let's see the definition of this term： phubbing n. the act of snubbing(冷落)someone in a social setting by looking at your cell phone instead of paying attention As you can probably guess，phubbing is a blend of phone and snubbing. The term was coined by a 23—year—old Melbourne resident Alex Haigh. Obviously，he got fed up with how people are always checking Facebook or Twitter on their phones when they are supposed to be interacting with someone face to face. He wanted to put an end to this social phenomenon， therefore he came up with this catchy term. And it did catch on. The word's earliest media mention dates back to June 2012，and in a little over a year's time，phubbing has already been picked up by almost all the mainstream media outlets one can think of. Here is a typical example from the British newspaper The Independent. In the article titled The Rise of Phubbing，which was published on August 5，2013，Tom Chatfield writes，there's an uncomfortable truth at the heart of phubbing：other people are easier to handle when seen on screen. They're less likely to demand unreasonable efforts such as undivided attention or clean shirts. While the term phubbing has undoubtedly taken off，some people question why it is called phubbing instead of phnubbing. Alex Haigh has not personally addressed the issue，but word has it that phubbing sounds more crispy and thus easier to remember. Phubbing is indeed a universal problem that can no longer be ignored. So why do people keep phubbing each other if they know it's rude? Is there anything we can do to stop it? Or maybe we should just be more kind，because sometimes there are good excuses to phub. I think there is plenty we can do to try and stop phubbing. For starters，we can join Alex Haigh in his Stop Phubbing campaign. Remind our friends and family that phubbing is not appreciated. We can also make or download some anti—phubbing posters to spread the word in public places. And don't forget that some phubbers simply do not realize the harmful effect their behavior has on others，so be brave enough to stop them，even if you are a total stranger. 66. This passage is mainly talking about _______. A. the rise of phubbing in all the mainstream media outlets B. a new term “phubbing”and its problem C. the campaign of keeping phubbing D. different opinions on phubbing 67. The author ’s attitude towards the act of phubbing can be described as ___________. A. bearable B. unacceptable C. reasonable D. understandable 68. What can we infer from this passage? A. People are easier to handle when seen on screen. B. Alex Haigh doesn’t like the term “phnubbing”
C. More and more people have become phubbers. D. We can phub if we have proper excuses. 69. The write suggests we should _________. A. stop phubbing in public places B. not be afraid of the harmful effect C. be brave to support a stranger phubbing D. remind our friends of Stop Phubbing campaign (C) When I was young, I went looking for gold in California. I never found enough to make a rich strike. But I did discover a beautiful part of the country called Stanislau. Like Heaven on Earth, it had bright green hills and deep forests where soft winds touched the trees. By the time I arrived, the charming paradise had been deserted because miners’ good luck didn’t last. Then, I realized I was not alone after all. A man was smiling at me as he stood in front of his little house. Its front yard was full of blue and yellow flowers. White curtains hung from the windows and floated in the soft summer wind. Still smiling, the man invited me inside. My spirit seemed to come to life again. I saw a bright rug(地毯) on the shining wooden floor. And on little tables there were seashells, books and china vases full of flowers. A woman had made this house into a home. The joy in my heart showed on my face. The man read my thoughts. “All her work.” He said affectionately, “Nothing here hasn’t felt the touch of her hand.” One picture on the wall was not hanging straight. He went to fix it. He stepped back several times to make sure the picture was straight. Then he gave it a gentle touch. “She always does that,” he explained, “It is like the finishing pat a mother gives her child’s hair after she has brushed it. I don’t know why I do it. I just do it.” As he talked, I went to a little black-walnut shelf that held a small picture of the most beautiful creature I had ever seen. There was a sweetness and softness in the woman’s expression. The man stared at the picture. “Nineteen her last birthday. That was the day we married. When you see her...ah, just wait until you meet her!” “Where is she now?” I asked. “Oh, she is away visiting her parents. This is Wednesday,” he said slowly. “She will be back on Saturday, in the evening.” That night, I stayed. The man told me his name was Henry. Thursday evening we had two visitors, Tom and Joe. “We just drop over to ask when little madam is coming home. Any news from her?” “Oh yes,” the man replied. “A letter.” He took a yellowed letter out of his wallet and read it. It was full of loving messages. While reading, he glimpsed his friends and cried out, “Oh no, you are doing it again, Tom! Take your hands away and let me see your eyes. I’m going to tell her this time!” “No, you mustn’t do that, Henry,” the grey-haired miner said. “I am getting old. And any little sorrow makes me cry. Lord, we miss her so.” Saturday finally came. I was glad to see his two friends, Tom and Joe, with guitars, coming down the road as the sun began to set. They put the flowers they brought in vases and began to play some fast and lively songs. Henry’s friends kept giving him glasses of whiskey. When I reached for one of the two remaining glasses, Tom stopped my arm. “Drop that! Take the other.” he whispered. I did so. Henry
was served last. He had hardly swallowed his drink when the clock struck midnight. His face grew paler and paler. “Boys,” he said, “I am sick with fear. Help! I want to lie down.” Henry was asleep almost before the words were out of his mouth. In a moment, those handy men had his clothes off and tucked him into his bed. They seemed to be getting ready to leave. So I said, “Please don’t go, gentlemen. She won’t know me. I am a stranger.” They glanced at each other. Then Joe said, “She? Poor thing, she’s been dead nineteen years!” “Dead?” I whispered. “That or worse.” he said. “She went to see her folks half a year after she got married. On her way back, on a Saturday evening in June, when she was almost here, the Indians captured her. She’s never been heard of since. Henry went insane. He thinks she is still alive. When June comes, he thinks she has gone on her trip to see her parents. Then he begins to wait for her to come back. We drop in here, three days before she’s due, to encourage him up and listen to him read the letter. On Saturday we all come and get everything ready for a dance. We’ve done it for nineteen years. The first Saturday there were twenty-seven of us, but only two now. We drug him to sleep through the night. Then he’s all right for another year.” The two old men opened the door and disappeared into the darkness of Stanislau. 70. You can sense the existence of a woman from the following sentences EXCEPT “______”. A. Soft winds touched the trees in Stanislau. B. There was a bright rug on the shining wooden floor. C. There were seashells, books and china vases full of flowers. D. A little black shelf held a small picture of a woman. 71. Tom cried when Henry read the yellowed letter, because ______. A. he was getting older and older B. he was moved by the loving messages in the letter C. he felt sad at the thought of Henry’s wife D. he was disappointed that Henry’s wife would arrive so late 72. Tom stopped my reaching for whiskey because ______. A. there was not enough whiskey for Henry B. he didn’t want me to get drunk C. that glass of whiskey was drugged D. it was for Henry’s wife 73.
