It is only when we cannot see perfectly that we realize how important our eyes are. People who are near-sighted can only see things that are very close to their eyes, and everything else seems blurry(=unclear). Many people who do a lot of work, such as writing, reading and sewing become near—sighted. People who are far-sighted suffer from just the opposite problem. They can see things that are far away, but they have difficulty in reading a book unless they hold it at arm’s length. If they want to do much reading ,they must get glasses, too. Other people do not see clearly because their eyes are not exactly the right shape. They have what is called astigmatism (散光). This, too, can be corrected by glasses. Some people’s eyes become cloudy because of cataracts (白内障). Long ago these people often became blind. Now, however, it is possible to operate on the cataracts and remove them. Having two good eyes is important for judging distances. Each eye sees things from a slightly different angle (角度). To prove this to yourself, look at an object out of one eye; then look at the same object out of your other eye. You will find the object’s relation to the background and other things around it has changed. The difference between these two different eye views helps us to judge how far away an object is. People who have only one eye cannot judge distance as people with two eyes. 5. When things far away seem indistinct(模糊不清) , one is probably____. A. near-sighted cataracts 6. The underlined word suffer in the third paragraph probably means_____. B. far-sighted C. astigmatic D. suffering from B. had a sense of humor D. was
C. feel pain
D. are affected with
7. Having two eyes instead of one is particularly useful for______. A. seeing at night C. looking over a wide area B. seeing objects far away D. judging distances
8. People who suffer from astigmatism have______. A. one eye bigger than the other B. eyes that are not exactly the right shape C. a difficulty that can be corrected by an operation D. an eye difficulty that cannot be corrected by glasses C The year was 1932. Amelia Earhart was flying alone from North America to England in a small single—engined aeroplane. At midnight, several hours after she had left Newfoundland, she ran into bad weather. To make things worse, her altimeter (高度 表) failed and she didn’t know how high she was flying. At night, and in a storm, a pilot is in great difficulty without an altimeter. At times, her plane nearly plunged (冲) into the sea. Just before dawn, there was further trouble. Amelia noticed flames (火焰) coming from the engine. Would she be able to reach land? There was nothing to do except to keep going and to hope. In the end, Amelia Earhart did reach Ireland, and for the courage she had shown, she was warmly welcomed in England and Europe. When she returned to the United States, she was honored by President Hoover at a special dinner in the White House. From that time on, Amelia Earhart was famous. What was so important about her flight? Amelia Earhart was the first woman to fly the Atlantic Ocean alone, and she had set a record of fourteen hours and fifty—six minutes. In the years that followed, Amelia Earhart made several flights across the United States, and on each occasion (时刻) she set a new record for flying time. Amelia Earhart made these flights to show that women had a place in aviation (航空) and that air travel was useful.

D Most painters discover a style of painting that is fit for them and stick to that, especially if people admire their pictures. But Picasso, the great Spanish painter, was like a man who had not yet found his own particular style of painting. He kept on struggling to find the perfect expression till his death in 1973. Some of Picasso's（毕加索） painting are rich, soft colored and beautiful. Others are ugly and cruel and strange. But such paintings allow us to imagine things for ourselves. They force us to say to ourselves,“What does he see that makes him paint like that?” And we begin to look under the surface of the things we see.. Picasso painted thousands of pictures in different styles. Sometimes he painted the natural look of things. Sometimes he seemed to break them apart and throw the
pieces in our faces. He showed us what the mind knows as well as what the eyes see. At the age of 90,he remained as curious about the world as he had been when he was young. That is why people have called him “the youngest painter in the world.” 13. The ugly cruel and strange paintings by Picasso _______. A. make us try to notice something latent(隐藏) in the things B. allow us to ask questions about them C. force us to question anything we see D. cause us to think what Picasso saw was different from what we see 14. The sentence “Sometimes he seemed to break them apart and throw the pieces in our faces” means _____. A. sometimes he tore his pictures into pieces B. he broke something he was painting and threw them away C. sometimes he showed some broken pictures to others D. things in some of his pictures seem to be in disorder 15. Why have people called Picasso “the youngest painter in the world?” A. Because he observed things with the eye and the mind. B. Because he looked young when he was old. C. Because he never stopped painting he was old. D. Because he never gave up looking for something new.
E I was ten when I first sat with my grandmother behind the cashier（收银台）in her general store. 16 I quickly learned the importance of treating customers
politely and saying “thank you.” At first I was paid in candy. 17 I worked every day after school, and during the summer and on weekends and holidays from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. My father helped me up a bank account. 18 By the time I was 12, My grandmother thought I had done such a good job that she promoted me to selling cosmetics （化妆品） . I developed the ability to look customers directly in the eye. Even though I was just a kid, women would ask me such things set
as “ What color do you think I should wear?” I took a real interest in their questions and was able to translate what they wanted into makeup（化妆）ideas. 19
The job taught me a valuable lesson: to be a successful salesperson, you didn’t need to be a Rocket scientist—you needed to be a great listener. __20___ Except they are no longer women purchasing cosmetics from me; instead, they are kids who tell me which toys they would like to see designed and developed. A. B. C. D. E. F. G. Later I received 50 cents an hour. Before long, she let me sit there by myself. I ended my selling a record amount of cosmetics. Today I still carry that lesson with me: I listen to customers. My grandma’s trust taught me how to handle responsibility. Soon I found myself looking more beautiful than ever before. Watching my money grow was more rewarding than anything I could have bought. (共 20 小题, 每小题 1.5 分, 满分 30 分)
