第三部分：阅读理解（共 20 小题；每小题 2 分，满分 40 分） 阅读下列短文，从每篇短文后所给各题的四个选项（A、B、C 和 D）中，选出最佳选项， 并在答题卡上将该项涂黑。 A The Lego Group had a very humble beginning in the workshop of Ole Kirk Christiansen, a carpenter from Denmark. Christiansen began creating wooden toys in 1932. Two years later, he came up with the name Lego by putting together the first two letters of the Danish words Leg and Godt, which mean “play well.” The name could be interpreted as “I put together” in Latin; it is also similar to the Greek verb meaning “gather” or “pick up.” In 1947, the company expanded to making plastic toys. At first, the use of plastic for toy production was not highly regarded by businessmen and consumers of the time. Many of the Lego Group’s shipments were returned, following poor sales. However, Christiansen’s son, Godtfred Kirk
Christiansen, saw the great potential in Lego bricks to become a system for creative play. As the junior managing director of the Lego Group, he spent years trying to improve the “locking” ability of the bricks and made the bricks more flexible. In 1958, the modern interlocking(连锁) brick design was finally developed and patented. Today Lego is sold in more than 130 countries. Every minute 33,824 Lego bricks are made, and kids around the world spend 5 billion hours a year playing with Lego. There will be more than 400 million people playing with Lego bricks this year. On average, every person in the world owns 62 Lego bricks, and about seven Lego sets are sold every second. This year Lego fans all over the world are celebrating the 50th anniversary of the tiny building blocks. Though already 50 years old, Lego is still the same product it was in the 1950s. Bricks bought then can still match current bricks and that is probably the reason the toy has never fallen out of favor. 51. Which of the following is true about the name Lego? A. It is a combination of Greek and Latin words. B. It was created by Ole Kirk Christiansen’s son. C. It was created in 1947 for naming the plastic toys. D. It came from Danish words meaning “play” and “well.” 52. When did the Lego brick become as a creative form of toy? A.1934 B. 1947 C.1958 D. 1932 53. What is most likely the reason why Lego still remains popular? A. Old Lego bricks may still be connected to new ones. B. The company hasn’t changed its name since 1947. C. The material for the bricks has proved to be safe. D. The price of the toy is relatively reasonable. B During my ninth-grade year, I suffered from “anorexia nervosa” It was not enough to be thin. . I had to be the thinnest. Now, however, fully recovered, I can reflect back and realize that my wishes were more complex than fitting into size five pants. Many of my hidden emotions were related to my relationship with my father. As I was growing up, his work always came first. Sometimes I would not see him for up to two weeks. Not only did he devote his whole self to his work, but he expected me to do the same (“You cannot get anywhere unless you go to the best universities!”). Though, consciously, I never felt pressure to please him, I began dieting after the first time he told me I looked fat. At the time, all I knew was that I had to be thin—thinner than anyone else. Every month my father went to Europe for a week or so and on the days he left, sorrow and emptiness swallowed me: Daddy was leaving. Then, I turned to focus on a mysterious weakness—a helpless childlike emotion that came from starving. I liked to know that I needed to be taken care of; maybe Daddy would take care of me. Now, two years later and thirty-eight pounds heavier, I have come to realize that I cannot change my father’s inability to express his feelings. Instead, I must accept myself. I know that I am a valuable person who struggles to achieve and accomplish. But I cannot struggle solely for others. By
starving, I attempted to gain pride in myself by obtaining my father’s approval or acknowledgment of my value as a person. But the primary approval must come from me, and I feel secure now that I can live with that knowledge safely locked in my mind. 54. What is “anorexia nervosa” as mentioned in the first line of the passage? A. It is a situation of feeling self-doubting. B. It is an inability to express one’s feelings. C. It is someone who is emotionally unstable. D. It is an illness that makes one want to stop eating. 55. Why did the writer suffer from anorexia nervosa? A. She was told by her father to take care of herself. B. She wanted to go to the best university. C. She wanted her father’s attention. D. She grew up in a poor family. 56. Which of the following statements is true about the writer? A. She has problems controlling her tempers. B. She is proud of herself for working hard to succeed. C. She has had great confidence in herself since childhood. D. She has changed her father’s way of expressing himself. 57. What’s the writer’s purpose of writing this passage? A. To blame her father. B. To report a case of child abuse. C. To reflect on a stage of growing up. D. To teach people how to lose weight. C In the Lincolnshire village of Burgh-le-Marsh there was once a large area of land called Bell String Acre. It got its name, the local legend tells, because of a narrow escape. On a dark winter's night early in the seventeenth century, they say, a ship's captain was guiding his ship to pass along this difficult distance of coast when he suddenly heard church bells. “If I can hear those,” the captain reasoned, “then I must be far too close to shore for comfort.” Swiftly he changed his position, thus saving himself and his ship. To show his thanks, he soon afterwards bought a piece of land at Burgh-le-Marsh. Rent on this Bell String Acre, he ordered, should go toward the maintenance of the church bell's pull-rope, so that it might ring out its helpful warnings, he required firmly, “for ever.” Another less charming story tells how the townspeople refused to ring the bell, for they all relished the idea of stealing goods from shipwrecks, but that a minister ran to the tower and rang the bell. His brave act saved the ship, but then the minister died of extreme tiredness. (And then it is said, the grateful captain married the clergyman's daughter.) In any case, the captain’s request is honored all winter long in Burgh-le-Marsh. Beginning every October 10, the bell rings nightly at 8 p.m. April 7 is the last night of the bells—that is, till the next October. 58. What does the first paragraph mainly tell us? A. Where Bell String Acre is.
B. A story about a brave captain. C. The origin of Bell String Acre. D. It is dangerous to sail along the coast. 59. It can be inferred from the passage that ____________. A. it was very cheap to buy a piece of land in Lincolnshire B. The church in Burgh-le-Marsh was very close to the coast C. The townspeople refused to ring the bell because of lack of money D. The church couldn’t afford to keep the bell’s pull-rope in good condition 60. The underlined word “relished” in the second paragraph probably means ______. A. preferred B. disliked C. competed D. warned 61. Which of the following is NOT true according to the passage? A. There was no way that the minister would attend the captain’s wedding. B. Bell ring from the church warned the ship of its dangerous course. C. There was no bell at night for the sailors for about half a year. D. The minster’s daughter was forced to marry the captain. D Kiss of Death is a romantic detective story whose basic theme focuses totally on dogs. Whitney Marshall had just gone through a divorce, appearing practically penniless while her husband, a promising plastic surgeon, was left with the property and the debts, and his new wife. Whitney seeks help from her cousin, Miranda, who had lived with them as a child. Miranda is operating a dog walking business and lives in the caretaker's cottage of one of her employers, Calvin Hunter. Whitney’s approach is timely as Miranda is getting married and leaving for a two- week honeymoon. She leaves her house and the dogs in Whitney’s care. Living next door is Adam Hunter; an expert of the Iraqi war who had suffered a battle injury. During his recovery, his uncle Calvin had asked Adam to his home in Greece telling him that he was certain someone was likely to murder him. His uncle Calvin recently died of an apparent heart attack and Adam has come to Calvin California home to straighten out his affairs and to further investigate the death. Adam is from the area, and was previously called up in the security business with his former police partner. Immediately after Calvin's death, his home had been broken into and the only things stolen were his computer and related things. Adam has an accountant trying to sort out his uncle financial affairs. His uncle had become fascinated to a pet dog who had “taken Westminster by storm,”and had caught the dog show fever, spending his time judging and attending shows. To the surprise of all, however, there does not seem to be any money in his accounts. Whitney and Adam meet when he catches her in the house. Whitney is merely dealing with Calvin’s dog, one of her new responsibilities. They continue to meet as outside causes throw them together and romance starts. Whitney’s former husband Ryan tries to persuade her to sign a deal over to him that he claims he had not been properly taken care of in the divorce. She is hesitating, waiting to see a lawyer. Then, Whitney’s dog is missing, kidnapped(绑架) by Ryan’s new wife’s personal trainer; the caretaker’s cottage is bombed; and most importantly, they find the man that Miranda was to marry had never heard of her, and she seems missing. The plot seems to circle among all these people, heading nowhere until the end of the book
when it picks up speed, and all is exposed. Kiss of Death will be unforgettable only to readers who enjoy learning mysterious facts about dogs. 62. Which of the following is TRUE about Whitney Marshall? A. Her cousin asked her to look after the dogs while she was away. B. Adam set traps so that he could meet Whitney frequently C. She’s going to get married to Adam Hunter. D. Her former husband hopes to marry her again. 63. What is the relationship between Whitney and Calvin Hunter? A. She is his neighbor. B. She is his employee. C. She is a cousin of one of his employees. D. She is the future-to-be daughter-in-law of him. 64. Which of the following is NOT true about Calvin Hunter? A. Calvin Hunter’s death caused some doubt and disbelief. B. People expect there to be a lot of money in his accounts. C. He once had a fever because of his dog. D. He likes dogs very much. 65. This passage is most probably part of _________. A. life story of the author of Kiss of Death B. an article by a literary reviewer C. a book-seller’s advertisement D. a diary by a real detective E Your particular relationships with your parents, not God or genes, determines your academic performance. In my case, it was my father who made the difference. I had three sisters and my father never showed much interest in their success. He took no notice of the school reports of one of them. They all made it to university. But this was largely because of my mother’s encouragement. However badly I did, and it was usually very bad, he always told me I was clever and that I could do well. When I was eight and remained at the bottom of my class, he tried to coach me in Latin and maths. His main goal was to show me that, if I could make myself concentrate on the dull tasks, I could do them. He chose the head of my house at public school with great care. He found a man who made a huge effort to teach the backward, raw material with which he started when I was 13. Together, they convinced me to take exams seriously. But the most important factor was that I knew my dad loved me. He expressed this in many kind letters. When we were together, he would take me in his arms. He encouraged me to think for myself and to enjoy what I enjoyed. He once watched me eating a huge amount of chocolate and said, “Eat as much as you like — you won’t always enjoy it that much.” So I started working hard. I agreed with his own clever ways. And I started to enjoy the learning of knowledge and the expression of ideas. Although exams gave little opportunity for that, I could sort of see the point. A lot of parents do not realize how important the emotional aspect of the relationship is. It determines their child’s performance. I recently heard a parent discussing what school their child
might get into. “I don’t know how bright he is,” she said. Many parents are troubled by their children’s marks at school. Their relationship with the child is almost wholly built around this. It was not at all like that with my dad. Until I was eight, he did not seem to worry about marks. And, after that, it was never exam performance that he was concerned with. Rather, he concentrated on my self-perception(自我感知). He constantly showed me that I was not stupid by pointing out things I had said that were signs of intelligence. It meant I had a reasonable self-regard. I kept failing exams. But, my father thought there was a difference between my failing one exam and whether I would be a success or failure in life. 66. According to the writer, which of the following influences your school performance most? A. Your interest in your success. B. The effort your teacher makes. C. Opportunity or luck that you have. D. Your emotional relationship with your parents. 67. Which of the following statements is NOT true about “my father”? A. He was good at Latin and maths. B. He used to write letters to encourage me. C. He paid much attention to my school marks. D. He paid little attention to my sisters’ school reports. 68.In Paragraph 4, “the backward, raw material ” refers to __________. A. a poor student C. one of the writer’s sisters A. How important it was to enjoy the learning. B. How important the emotional aspect of the relationship was. C. How important it was to choose a man to teach me at home. D. How important a child’s exam performance was to the parents. 70. Which of the following can be the best title of this newspaper story? A. How my father respect me C. Relationship with your parents 第四部分：书面表达（共两节，满分 40 分） 第一节：完成句子（共 10 小题；每小题 1.5 分，满分 15 分） 阅读下列各小题，根据括号内的汉语提示，用句末括号内的英语单词完成句子，并将答案 写在答题卡上的相应题号后。 71.
