第二部分阅读理解（共两节，满分 30 分） 第一节（每小题 1.5 分，共 15 小题，满分 22.5 分） A Hundreds of years ago, news was carried from place to place by people on foot or by horse. It took days, weeks and sometimes months for people to receive news. Now it is possible to send words and pictures around the world in seconds. Billions of people learn about news stories of their own country and all over the world every day, either by watching TV or reading newspapers. Newspapers have been an important part of everyday life since the 18th century. Many countries have hundreds of different newspapers. How do newspaper editors decide which news stories to print? Why do they print some stories and not others? What makes a good newspaper story? Firstly, it is important to report news stories. TV stations can report news much faster than newspapers. Yet, newspapers give more about the same story. They may also look at the story in another way, or they may print completely different stories to those on TV. Secondly, a news story has to be interesting and unusual. People don’t want to read stories about everyday life. As a result, many stories are about some kind of danger and seem to be “bad” news. For example, newspapers never print stories about planes landing safely; instead they print stories about plane accidents. Another factor(因素) is also very important in many news stories. Many people are interested in news in foreign countries, but more prefer to read stories about people, places and events in their own country. So the stories on the front page in Chinese newspapers are usually very different from the ones in British, French and American newspapers. 21. According to the passage, how do people learn about news stories in the world now? A. They carry news stories and tell others from place to place on foot or by horse.
B. They tell each other what they have seen with their eyes. C. They watch TV or read newspapers. D. They listen to the radio every day. 22. The difference between newspaper stories and TV news reports is that _______ . A. people can learn more about the same news story from a newspaper B. people can read the news story more quickly in a newspaper C. people can read news stories in other countries D. people can read news stories about their own country 23. To make a good newspaper story, how many factors does the passage talk about? A. Two. B. Three. C. Five. D. Six.
24. According to the passage, which of the following can you most possibly watch on TV? A. You often play football with your friends after school. B. Your teacher has got a cold. C. A tiger in the city zoo has run out and hasn’t been caught. D. The bike in front of your house is lost.

Nobody can control the weather. But if we read correctly the signs around us, we can tell what the more important changes in the weather will be. This way of telling what the weather will be like on the following day or two is called weather forecasting. For many centuries and in all countries, people have studied the weather and tried to make weather forecasting. Rings around the sun are a sign of coming rain. That many people feel their joints(关节) hurt is a sign of wet weather. Some birds fly high if the weather is fine, but they fly near the ground if rainy or stormy weather is on the way. If you see a rainbow during rainy weather, this is a sign that the weather will become clear and fine. Such rainbows come in the evening. If the stars twinkle clearly at night, then fine weather will continue. If a fog appears in the morning just above a river, then the day will be warm. If the sunset is mostly red in colour, then the following day will be fine. If a rainbow appears in the morning, rainy weather will probably come. Most of the above sayings have been made by the people who have used their eyes and brains to make weather forecasting. 29. Which is true about weather forecasting? A. Weather forecasting is a way of telling what the weather will be like. B. Weather forecasting is a report about the weather. C. Weather forecasting is a sign of coming rain. D. People can change the weather forecasting. 30. Which of the following can be used here to replace the underlined phrase “on the way”? A. continuing B. reducing. C. coming. D. disappearing. B. To do some housework D. To provide language exercises
31. Which of the following signs can tell the weather will probably be rainy? A. Some birds fly high. C. The sunset is mostly red in colour. B. A rainbow appears in the morning. D. Fogs appear in the morning just above a river.
32. The best title of the passage is _______. A. Weather forecasting plays an important role in our life B. Weather forecasting can bring people some signs of weather
C. Weather is forecasted only by eyes and brains. D. People can predict weather by experience in daily life
D There have been many great inventions, which have changed the way we live. The first great invention was one that is still very important today—the wheel. This made it easier to carry heavy things to travel long distances. For hundreds of years after that there were few inventions that have made as much effect as the wheel. There was little unknown land left in the world. People didn't have to explore(开发) much any more. They began to work instead to make life better. In the second half of the 19th century many great inventions were made. Among them were the camera, the electric light and the radio. These all became a big part of our life today. The first part of the 20th century saw more great inventions. The helicopter in 1909. Sound movies in 1926. The computer in 1928, and jet planes in 1930. This was also a time when a new material was made. Nylon came out in 1935. It changed the kind of clothes people wear. The middle part of the 20th brought new ways to help people get over diseases. They worked very well. They made people healthier and let them live long lives. By the 1960s most people could expect to live to be at least 60. By this time most people had a very good life. Of course new inventions continued to be made. But man now had a wish to explore again. The world is known to man but the stars are not yet. Man began looking for ways to go into space. Russia made the first step. Then the United States took a step. Since then other countries, including China and Japan, have made their steps into space. 33. Which of the following was turned out nearly at the same time with the jet plane? A. The radio. B. The camera. C. Nylon. D. The helicopter.
34. This passage talks mainly about ______. A. how inventions affect (影响) people's life B. when electric light was invented
C. which country made the first step into space D. why cars were very important 35. We can safely come to the conclusion that people's life will be made even better through ______.
A. new discoveries? B. greater inventions
C. better ways to help people get over diseases?
D. all of above

It’s important to provide a workspace of their own where they can read books or just write a letter to their friends. ●Location(位置) 37 Kitchens and dining rooms are not so well suited for regular study, since
books and pens get in the way of the day-to-day use of those areas. Set up a place where a child can settle in and leave papers and pens at hand without having to clear everything away each night. For a child that likes being alone, set aside a corner of his bedroom, but keep it separate from things like games, music and other hobbies not related to studying. ●Keeping Things in Order Parents should encourage their child to spread out, but to leave it neat and orderly when he isn’t using his workspace. Ownership is very important for self -respect. The workplace should be personal, but not another part of the playroom. ● 39 38
