Each passage is followed by several questions or unfinished statements. For each of them there are four choices marked A, B, C and D. Choose the one that fits best according to the information given in the passage you have just read. A The iPhone, the iPad: each of Apple’s products sounds cool and has become a fad(一时的风尚). Apple has cleverly taken advantage of the power of the letter ―i‖ –-- and many other brands are following suit. The BBC’s iPlayer --- which allows Web users to watch TV programs on the Internet ---used the title in 2008. A lovely bear --- popular in the US and UK --- that plays music and video is called ―iTeddy‖. A slimmed-down version(简装本) of London’s Independent newspaper was started last week under the name ―i‖. In general, single-letter prefixes(前缀) have been popular since the 1990s, when terms such as e-mail and e-commerce(电子商务) first came into use. Most ―i‖ products are targeted at （针对）young people and considering the major readers of Independent’s ―i‖, it’s no surprise that they’ve selected this fashionable name. But it’s hard to see what’s so special about the letter ―i‖. Why not use ―a‖, ―b‖, or ―c‖ instead? According to Tony Thorne, head of the Language Center at King’s College, London, ―i‖ works because its meaning has become ambiguous. When Apple uses ―i‖, no one knows whether it means Internet, information, individual or interactive, Thorne told BBC Magazines. ―Even when Apple created the iPod, it seems it didn’t have one clear definition（定义）,‖ he says. ―However, thanks to Apple, the term is now connected with portability (轻便) .‖adds Thorne. Clearly the letter ―i‖ also agrees with the idea that the Western World is centered on the individual. Each person believes they have their own needs, and we love personalized products for this reason. Along with ―Google‖ and ―blog‖, readers of BBC Magazines voted ―i‖ as one of the top 20 words that have come to define the last decade(十年). But as history shows, people grow tired of fads. From the 1900s to 1990s, products with ―2000‖ 考试号 学校： 班级： 密 姓名： 封 线
in their names became fashionable as the year was connected with all things advanced and modern. However, as we entered the new century, the fashion disappeared. 57. People use iPlayer to __________. A. listen to music B. make a call C. watch TV programs online D.read newspapers 58. We can infer that the Independent’s ―i‖ is designed for _________. A. young readers B. old readers C. fashionable women D. engineers 59. The underlined word ―ambiguous‖ means ―__________‖. A. popular B. uncertain C. clear D. unique 60. The writer suggests that __________. A. ―i‖ products are often of high quality B. iTeddy is alive bear C. the letter ―b‖ replaces letter ―i‖ to name the products D. the popularity of ―i‖ products may not last long B Kuringai Chase National Park Guided Walks and Nature Activities SUNDAY MAY 7 EASY Early Morning Stroll in Upper Lane Cove Valley Meet at 7:30 a.m. at the end of Day RD, Cheltenham, while the bush is alive with birdsong.

Section B Questions 11 through 13 are based on the following passage. A young man had a new girlfriend, who he wanted to please very much. One evening he invited her to an expensive restaurant with him. They ate wonderful food and had a great many drinks. They listened to the beautiful music and danced wildly until midnight. The girl enjoyed the whole evening and she loved everything she saw. Then the waiter brought the bill at the end of the evening. When the young man saw how much he had to pay, he was greatly surprised and he went as white as a sheet. The waiter, who was watching his face, thought he might be ill, so he quickly picked up a glass of iced-cold water and emptied it over the young man’s head. Then he took the bill back and added to it ―Iced-water: 50 cents.‖ Questions: 11. Why did the young man invite his new girlfriend to an expensive restaurant?
12. Why did the young man’s face go as white as sheets? 13. Why did the waiter pour a glass of iced-water over the young man’s head? Questions 14 through 16 are based on the following passage. Most people think that the older you get, the harder it is to learn a new language. That is why they believe that children learn more easily than adults. Thus, at some point in our lives, maybe around age twelve or thirteen we lose the ability to learn language well. Is it true that children learn a foreign language more easily than adults? One report, on 2,000 Danish children studying Swedish, showed that the teenagers learn more in less time than the younger children. Another report, on Americans learning Russian, showed that the ability to learn a language increases as the age increases from childhood to adulthood. There are several possible explanations for these results. For one thing, adults know more about the world and therefore are able to understand meanings more easily than children. Moreover, adults can use logical thinking to help themselves in learning a new language. Finally adults have more self-control than children. Therefore it seems that the common belief that children are better learners than adults may not be true. Questions: 14. According to this talk, what’s the common belief about learning a new language? 15. How many reports are mentioned in the passage? 16. Which quality of adults is not mentioned in the passage? Section C Blanks 17 through 20 are based on the following conversation. M: Good morning! Green Sense. Can I help you? W: Hello, my name is Mary White and I want to complain about a sea food restaurant. M: OK, can I take down your telephone number? W: My phone number is 655038. M: Good! So what would you like to complain about? W: Actually two things. First, the restaurant dumps its rubbish in the street and you could imagine what that attracts—rats! M: Right! I’ve got that! And the second problem? W: The restaurant doesn’t put bottles and cans in recycling bins. It’s not responsible. M: Got it! What’s the address of the sea food restaurant? W: It’s 449 Shanghai Street. M: OK! We’ll look into it and call you back. W: Thank you. Goodbye!
