“I knew I was in trouble， ”she says． The buck rushed forward，lifted her up with its antlers and threw her into the air. Sue could feel the antlers made small holes in her leg and blood ran down her leg. When the Vaughans pulled up，the buck was throwing Sue like a rag doll. Before her father had stopped the car，Alexis rushed out of the car and down the slope（斜坡）toward the buck． “1 was kicking and hitting it hard with my fists to get its attention so that It will leave the woman，”she says．However，the animal was not frightened at all．Then Michael pushed the buck away from the woman by the antlers． Alexis helped Sue up the slope and into the Vaughans’car．Then she tied a tourniquet （止血带）to Sue's right leg．Her neck was cut．Then she heard her father shout loudly. Michael had been knocked to the ground，his right leg seriously cut by the buck. Alexis took a hammer from the car and ran to where Michael lay on his back in the dirt．She beat the buck’s head and neck，but the blows didn’t frighten it away． “I was losing faith,”she says. “A couple more strikes，Alexis， ”said Michael． “You can do it．”Alexis closed her eyes and hit with all her strength at the deer’s neck with the hammer. When she opened her eyes, the deer was running away． A1exis got in the driver ’s seat and sped toward the hospital in Franklin，hearing her dad’s breathing grow difficuIt and unsmooth as the blood from his wounded leg had flowed through the T—shirt he'd wrapped around it．In the backseat，Sue looked unconscious. After doctors treated Sue and Michael，Sue tearfully thanked her rescuers． “ You expect a Teenage girl to get on the phone and call for help in such a situation, not to beat up a deer she says． 67．What can we know from the first two paragraphs?

E It is pretty much a one-way street．While it may“be common for university researchers to try their luck in the commercial world，there is very little traffic in the opposite direction．Pay has always been the biggest deterrent，as people with families often feel they cannot afford the drop in salary when moving to a university job．For some industrial scientists，however, the attractions of academia（学术界）outweigh any financial considerations． Helen Lee took a 70％cut in salary when she moved from a senior post in Abbott Laboratories to a medical department at the University of Cambridge．Her main reason for returning to academia halfway was to take advantage of the greater freedom to choose research questions．Some areas of research have few chances of a commercial return，and Lee’s is one of them． The powerful effect of a salary cut is probably less severe for a scientist in the early stages of an occupation．Guy Grant，now a research associate at the Unilever Centre for Molecular Informatics at the University of Cambridge，spent two years working for a medicine company before returning to university as a post-doctoral researcher．He took a 30％salary cut but felt it worthwhile for the greater intellectual opportunities． Higher up the ladder，where a pay cut is usually more significant，the demand for scientists with a wealth of experience in industry is forcing universities to make the transition（转 换）to academia more attractive，according to Lee．Industrial scientists tend to receive training that academics do not，such as how to build a multidisciplinary team，manage budgets and negotiate contracts（合同） ．They are also well placed to bring something extra to the teaching side of an academic role that will help students get a job when they graduate，says Lee，perhaps experience in manufacturing practice or product development． “Only a small number of undergraduates will continue in an academic occupation．So someone leaving university who already has the skills needed to work in an industrial lab has far more potential in the job market than someone who has spent a11 their time on a narrow research project．” 72．The underlined word“deterrent”in Paragraph 1 most probably refers to something that A．helps to move the traffic C．keeps someone from taking action A．Flexible work hours． C．Chances of academic accomplishments A．To do financially more rewarding work． B．To raise his status in the academic world． C．To enjoy better intellectual opportunities． D．To gain more experience in medical research． 75．What contribution can industrial scientists make when they come to teach in a university? A．Suit its research to practical applications． B．Develop its students’potential in research． C．Help it obtain financial support from industry． D．Increase its graduates’competitiveness in the j ob market． 【高三英语 第 9 页（共 10 页） 】 B．attracts people’s attention D．brings someone a financtal burden B．Her research interests． D．Her preference for the lifestyle at university
73．What was Helen Lee’s major consideration when she changed her j ob halfway?
74．Why did Guy Grant choose to work as a researcher at Cambridge?

He happened to be interested in psychology and he talked a lot with Mary. Finally he gave her a check for $10,000 to pay for her last year of college, which was really a big tip for her.? Mary described Mr Williams as “a nice English gentleman” and told the story again and again on television in the US. Unfortunately, Mary’s bank wouldn’t pay the money because Mr Williams didn’t have $10,000 in the bank and he didn’t even remember giving the tip at all.? But there was a happy ending to the story. Top Club in New York was so pleased that the club ’s name was in every newspaper in Britain and the United States and the boss of the club gave Mary the $10,000 to pay for her last year at New York University.? 试题答案? 1~5 BACBC 6~10 CBACB 11~15 ACBCA 16~20 ABABC ? 21~25 CBDAD 26~30 CADBC 31~35 ADBAC ? 36~40 ABDCA 41~45 CACBD 46~50 BDCAB 51~55 CDABD ? 56~59 CABD 60~63 CBDA 64~66 BDA 67~71 BACDA ? 72~75 CBCD 76.However 77.on 78.it 79.kind 80.ages 81.including 82.how 83.with 84.knows 85.talking 书面表达? One possible version: Many people fail in life because they do not realize how close they are to success when they give up. In this picture, we can see a man is cutting earth in a tunnel, hoping to find some diamonds. He makes great efforts in his work. However, after a long time of pains without gains, he decides to give up. With one or two more attempts of cutting, he would have seen those diamonds right in front of him. This story tells us a very simple but important piece of truth: we should be confident in what we have chosen to do and never stop our efforts until we succeed. As a student preparing for the entrance examinations, I should learn a lesson from the man. Just like the diamonds in the picture, success is just waiting for my last efforts. I have been cutting earth for so many years, so I will never give up before I succeed.
