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 first time my father and I ever went fishing became a family legend(传奇故事). We spent hours waiting for a bite. The sun was bursting with fire. We were hot, sticky, and mad that the fish refused to suck up our night crawlers(蚯蚓). Being only seven years old, I observed that perhaps the worms were the problem. Maybe the night crawlers only moved at night, and now they were just lying there motionless on the hook. Dad ignored my assessment of the situation. We began to pack up to leave. As we headed back to our truck, we heard tires spinning in the distance. Getting into our truck was tough. Having sat in the boiling sun for six hours, the seats were blistering. Naturally, I was wearing shorts. I shifted from side to side in the seat so as not to cook my bottom. While driving out we saw a truck with a boat trailer and boat that was stuck in the mud. That explained the sound of spinning tires we’d heard. Being a nice guy, my dad helped pull the man from the mud. In return, this fellow gave Dad some fish for being a Good Samaritan. As Dad climbed back into our truck with a brown bag full of fish, we waved goodbye to our newfound friend. On the drive home, we agreed to take in the fish as if we had caught them. We were sure there was no way for Mom to know the difference. It was just a little white lie. We arrived home hot, sweaty, and smelly, and went to clean up while Mom prepared the fish. We made a big deal out of the fact that we had already cleaned them and put them in the bag so as not to make a mess. After showering, Dad and I met in the hall and exchanged conspiratorial grins(心照不宣的笑). Sitting down to freshly fried fish, we started eating happily and went on about how good something tasted that we had actually caught ourselves. Mother looked suitably impressed. As we got up to do the dishes, Mom cleared her throat. “I just have one question of you two great fishermen,” she said. We looked at her expectantly, thinking we had another opportunity to delight her with our great fishing ability. With a tiny smile, Mom asked, “How was it again that you two managed to not only clean your fish, but also freeze them before you got home.” 51. Why didn’t the fish eat our night crawlers? A. The weather was too hot. B. The reason was not clear. C. The fish were not hungry. D. The fish only ate night crawlers alive. 52. Dad was called a Good Samaritan for______. A. taking in the fish B. helping a stranger C. showing great strength D. making friends with a stranger 53. Mom smiled at the end because she ______. A. was amused by the little white lie B. was satisfied with their fishing ability C. was impressed that the fish were clean and frozen D. was delighted that she did not need to deal with the mess
54. Why did the fishing become a family legend? A. They caught a lot of fish. B. They cooperated well in telling the lie. C. They chose to benefit a stranger rather than themselves. D. They make themselves a fool in front of the mother since they lied. B As I drive about the Sois in rural Thailand I catch little glimpses of things that barely register on the mind as the scenery flies by; strange things, beautiful things, sad things, interesting things. I wish I could hold on to these scenes; explore them in detail. I wish that I had the time to stop and investigate further as I’m driving by, but time is a commodity(商品)worth more than all the moneys in the world. I wish I had more. I once had a guy wave to me as I passed him. He yelled out something, almost in greeting, as if he knew me. I wonder if we knew each other once, in another place, another time, and he recognized my soul as I drove by in the truck, and just had to yell a hello. I wish I had stopped and said hello too. I saw two young girls, dressed in school uniforms. White blouses, blue skirts, books in hand. They were holding hands, talking, walking down the road, jostling(推，搡)each other with their shoulders and teasing each other as they strolled along. As I passed the one closest to the truck looked up. She was close enough to touch almost. Her smiling face, her clear eyes and golden smooth skin are there in my mind’s eye now. I can see her as if she were standing next to me. Once in a while her face just pops into my head. Why? Why is she still there? Sometimes I think maybe I’m a bit mad. I stopped at a road stop on a corner one time. An old lady standing by the roadside walked over to the truck and put her hand on my arm and smiled at me. Her palm was so cool. It must have been a hundred degrees out that day. She said something in Thai and giggled(咯咯地笑) and walked away. Who was she? Why did she touch me? Why was her hand so cool? Why did I just sit there and let her touch me? I didn’t flinch(退缩)away. It was almost as if I knew her, and we were just saying a quick hello. Her cool touch almost seemed familiar; like my long dead grandmother’s soothing cool touch remembered from when I was just a little boy. I need more time. I need to stop the truck more often, and just say hello. Things glimpsed along the road are often far more interesting and wonderful than that which seems to consume our daily lives. Slow down. Stop the truck. Get out, and say hello. 55. What kind of life does the writer normally lead? A. Busy. B. Tiring. C. Meaningless. D. Boring. 56. The man in paragraph two yelled out because he ______. A. had met the writer before B. recognized the writer’s soul C. wanted to show friendliness D. mistook me as one of his friends 57. The writer describes the two school girls in great details to show ______. A. his liking for them B. that he was kind of crazy C. his interest in observing people D. the deep impression they left on him 58. Why does the author compare the old lady with his grandmother? A. The old lady behaved like his grandmother. B. He suggests the old lady had very cold hands. C. He suggests the old lady’s touch was comforting. D. The old lady reminded the writer of his entire childhood. C Ocean animals have been getting bigger over the last half-billion years. Not a little bigger. Not even a lot bigger. They have mushroomed gigantically, scientists now conclude. Their new finding lends support for something known as “Cope’s rule.” It holds that animals tend to evolve into species that are much larger than their distant ancestors. This hypothesis(假 说)takes its name from the 19th century paleontologist Edward Drinker Cope. While studying fossils(化石), he was the first to notice this trend.
Noel Heim is a paleontologist at Stanford University in Palo Alto, Calif. He also is a co-author of the new study. His team compared the body size of animals between the Cambrian Period and modern times. This was a span of 542 million years. The animals studied included species from more than 17,000 genera. They ranged from ancient trilobites, plesiosaurs (extinct reptiles with a long neck and flippers) and many less familiar creatures to today’s whales and clams. Ocean animals today are an average of 150 times larger than they were during the Cambrian, Heim’s group reports. The smallest animals alive today — tiny crustaceans called ostracods — are only about one-tenth the size of the Cambrian’s tiniest animals. But today’s largest ocean animals — whales — are more than 100,000 times bigger than the biggest in the Cambrian. “Classes of animals that were already big … tended to live longer,” Heim says. They also tended to change more than classes of animals that were small did. The size gains in ocean animals are much larger than would be expected by chance, says Jonathan Payne. He’s a co-author who also works at Stanford. The scientists don’t know what drives the trend. One possibility is an arms race(军备竞 赛)between predators and prey. The idea here is that larger animals are less likely to become some other animals’ meal. Another possibility has to do with oxygen. Land animals evolved from species that started in the ocean. Some of these land animals eventually returned to the ocean. And they kept the ability to breathe oxygen-rich air. That may have made it easier for them to outgrow animals that had to filter(过滤)their oxygen out of the water. 59. What current animals may best illustrate “mushroomed” in paragraph one? A. Plesiosaurs. B. Ostracods. C. Whales. D. African Elephants. 60. What is the third paragraph mainly about? A. The result of the study. B. The participants of the study. C. The significance of the study. D. The targeted animals of the study. 61. The ocean animals’ change in size ______. A. is determined by environment B. cannot be predicted by any factor C. is fully explained by the new study D. relates to the size of their ancestors 62. In the last paragraph, the explanations for the trend suggest that ______. A. bigger animals will never be eaten B. land animal can get oxygen more easily C. oxygen is important to all ocean animals D. land animals can grow bigger than ocean animals D For as long as they can remember Jynne Martin and April Surgent had both dreamed of going to Antarctica. This winter, they each made it to the icy continent as guests of the National Science Foundation (NSF). But they didn’t go as scientists. Martin is a poet and Surgent is an artist. They went to Antarctica as participants in the NSF’s Artists and Writers program. The NSF is the government agency that funds scientific research in Antarctica. But it also makes it possible for artists, including filmmakers and musicians, to experience Antarctica and contribute their own points of view to our understanding of the continent. The mixing of science and art in Antarctica isn’t new. Some of the earliest explorers brought along painters and photographers. Edward Wilson was a British painter, doctor, and bird expert who journeyed with Robert Falcon Scott on two separate Antarctic expeditions more than 100 years ago. Herbert Ponting was a photographer who also accompanied Scott on one of those expeditions. In hundreds of photos, Ponting captured the beauty of the continent and recorded the daily lives and heroic struggles of the explorers. Today ’s scientists write articles for scientific journals. Unlike the early explorers’ journals, scientific papers can now be very difficult for non-scientists to understand. Writers in Antarctica work to explain the research to the public. Peter Rejcek is editor, writer, and photographer for the Antarctic Sun, an online magazine devoted to news about the U.S. Antarctic Program. Rejcek began his career in the Antarctic in 2003 by spending a year at the South Pole. He has returned every year since, interviewing scientists about research at Palmer, McMurdo, and South Pole stations. There are also scientists in Antarctica who work hard to explain their research to the public. Scientist Diane McKnight wrote The Lost Seal, a children’s book that explains the research she and
others are doing in an unusual ice-free area in Antarctica called the Dry Valleys. Antarctica is full of stories and wonders that are scientific, historical, and personal. People such as Martin, Surgent, Rejcek, and McKnight are devoted to bringing those stories to as many people as they can. “Some people are going to be scientists, some people are going to be journalists, some people are going to be artists, but we can all work together,” says Surgent, “to celebrate this extraordinary place.” 63. What do we know about the NSF? A. It is a government agency. B. It only funds scientists in Antarctica. C. It encourages the understanding of human nature. D. It enables the mixing of science and art for the first time. 64. Why didn’t some earliest explorers bring writers along? A. Writers were not funded at that time. B. Writing can’t capture the beauty of the continent. C. Writers were not interested in popularizing science. D. Early explorers’ journals can be easily understood by the public. 65. By mentioning Diane McKnight, the author may try to suggest that ______. A. scientists should explain their research to children B. writers are not necessary since scientists can tell stories as well C. telling stories to children is more important than knowing the truth D. no matter what role we play, we can work together to appreciate Antarctica 66. What would be the best title for this article? A. Antarctica: A Land for All B. The NSF: A Program for All C. Antarctica: A Land of Beauty and Stories D. The NSF: A Program for Artists and Scientists E The United States government is back in business. Early Thursday morning, President Barack Obama signed a bill to reopen the government. The budget bill, drafted by Senate late on Wednesday night, raised the government’s debt ceiling and averted(避免)a serious economic crisis. “With the shutdown behind us,” Obama said after the Senate vote, “we now have an opportunity to focus on a sensible budget that is responsible, that is fair and that helps hardworking people all across this country.” Now that a settlement has been reached, formerly furloughed(休假)employees have returned to work, national museums and parks are reopening, and the government’s gears are slowly beginning to turn again. Before the shutdown, a federal funding bill went back and forth between the Senate and the House. A major issue was whether or not the government would pay for changes in Obama’s healthcare plan. The Senate, with a Democratic majority, wanted to pass a budget that would fund the new healthcare law. But the House, which has a Republican majority, did not want government money used that way. Because an agreement could not be reached on a budget plan, the government was forced to partially shut down. Sixteen days later, the two sides have come together to pass a measure that raised the country’s debt ceiling. The debt ceiling is the strict legal limit Congress places on the amount of money that can be borrowed each year. Had this agreement not been met by October 17, the U.S. may not have been able to pay its promised payments. This legislation, or law, will fund the government through January 15. During this time, Obama and Congress will work on a long-term spending plan. The effects of the two-week government shutdown were widespread. In addition to national parks, museums, memorials and monuments were off-limits to visitors. Workers at government-run organizations like NASA and the Environmental Protection Agency were furloughed. Part of the new legislation will pay back the 800,000 workers who were without pay during the shutdown. Early Thursday, the Smithsonian Institution celebrated the government’s reopening on Twitter. “We’re back from the shutdown!” they wrote, announcing that museums would reopen Thursday
and the National Zoo in Washington on Friday. To the delight of many people, that also means the return of the zoo’s popular live Panda camera. 67. What may have lead to the government shutdown? A. Economic crisis. B. The senate voting. C. Dispute on the budget bill. D. Lazy people across the country. 68. What does the underlined phrase “two sides” in paragraph four refers to? A. The senate and the house. B. The senate and the president. C. The president and the congress. D. The legislator and the government. 69. What can we learn about the U.S. Government from the shutdown? A. It is run by lazy workers. B. It is affected by different political forces. C. The people has no say in the decision making process. D. Obama decides whether his health care bill will be passed or not. 70. In mentioning the live Panda camera, the author suggests that ______. A. zoos were government-run B. pandas were popular among the public C. the effects of the shutdown were widespread D. tourists were affected the most by the shutdown

If we can learn to contain this emotion, we could decrease the unnecessary trouble it brings. Linda and I got along like sisters. However, on one weekends, I quarreled with her over a decision on when to visit the library. She wanted to go out later since she had not washed her hair, while I could not wait to check out the latest publication on Harry Potter, my all time favorite. This small dispute soon blew into a big one as both of us thought the other was unreasonable, inconsiderate and simply ridiculous. Driven by childish anger, we shouted at each other mercilessly over the phone and never spoke to each other for a long time.
If I had controlled my anger and walked in Linda’s shoes for a mile, I would have understood her hesitance to go out, and we could have avoided hurting each other’s feelings.

If you feel sick and want to see a doctor, check with the manager of your hotel. They may call a doctor for you. American doctors are busy all the time, and it may be difficult to see the doctor immediately, especially if you are well enough to go to the doctor ’s office. If you have difficulty explaining what is troubling you in English, your tour guide may be able to help you. You may also go to the nearest hospital, especially if you require immediate attention. If you are seriously hurt and alone, call 911 and the operator there will get help for you. Don’t be frightened if you’re sent to the hospital. In the United States, people are often sent to hospitals so that doctors can use the special machines and services for tests and treatment. Unfortunately, the United States does not have a national system of health insurance to help pay medical bills. 第二节到此结束。
