第二部分：阅读理解（共两节，满分 40 分 ） 第一节（共 15 小题；每小题 2 分，满分 30 分） A Graham and his friends preferred to shoot up in their arms, necks and legs. A dealer once said Graham was
the type who would never be able to turn back and that he expected him to die from the drug. Wendy feared the same, but didn’t know how to save her son. “ Once, after he’d disappeared for more than a month, I found him at a friend’s house with a bunch of other users,” she said, “I got down on my hands and knees, begging him to come home. He did, but the next morning he was gone. I don’t know what made him do it, but I drove 20 miles to the nearest train station. Graham was headed for Seattle, his pockets full of drugs. If I hadn’t gotten there in time, I would never have seen him alive again.” The turning point came in 2007, after Graham was arrested yet again for possession. Wendy got a call from the Montana Drugs Project, which works with local law enforcement（强制执行） to keep track of youth-related crimes so it can help families in trouble. Following a counselor’s advice, Wendy hired two men to come to her home in the middle of the night, tie Graham and take him to a treatment program in Thompson Falls, Montana. “I was high when they came and really angry with my mom,” he said, “But if she hadn’t done that, drugs would have killed me.” After six months of treatment, Graham, now 19, came back to Kalispell, where he’s grown close to Wendy once again. “I still have the desires every day and attend support meetings every night,” he said, “But life is worth living again. My mom thinks that’s a miracle. I guess she is right.” 21. The underlined phrase “shoot up” in paragraph 1 probably means_________. A. increase very quickly and suddenly B. put illegal drugs into the body by using a needle C. kill or injure someone by using a gun D. try to achieve a particular aim 22. When the two men came to their home in the middle of the night, Graham _______. A. had just taken drugs and was in the state of excitement. B. was sleeping in a high bed above the ground. C. had just taken drugs and was in the state of suffering. D. was quarrelling with his mother. 23. What conclusion can be drawn from the end of the passage? A. Graham is still using drugs now. B. Graham hates his mother very much. C. Graham thinks he can’t be saved. D. Graham has come off drugs now. B As the population of the planet increases, so does the number of homes, businesses, parking lots, schools, airports and roadways. All these structures use electricity and need to be lighted. Humans demand these lights. They want their homes more comfortable and they want their streets safe. The problem is that researchers are finding that all the light is having a negative effect on humans and wildlife as well. Less than 10 years ago I drove to a thinly populated section of my town, lay down in the middle of the road and watched an attractive meteor shower (流星雨). The area was short of homes, street lights and traffic. If I did that today, I wouldn't be able to see the meteor shower as well. Due to the increase in street lights, I would surely be run over by a car. Nowadays scientists are finding light pollution can be almost as bad as carbon dioxide pollution. If you've ever taken a flight at night, the view is beautiful, but you must remember that all the light you see wastes electricity. The crew of the space shuttles see an even bigger picture of how extensive the wasted electricity is worldwide. One of the saddest parts of light pollution is that most of it is unnecessary and most of the outdoor light that we use is wasted. One only needs to look at a row of street lights to see how
much of the light shines upwards and lights the sky; a total waste of electricity. Additionally, somewhere electricity needs to be produced, and the production of electricity creates pollution by releasing greenhouse gases. This affects the air we breathe and our quality of life. Scientists are also studying the effects of light pollution on wildlife. Thousands of birds die each year when they crash into highly lighted buildings, as they become puzzled by the light. It has been long known that tiny baby sea turtles become lost and follow lights on the shore instead of heading towards the sea. Fortunately, light pollution is one of the easiest sources of pollution that can be corrected without a negative effect. Following some guidelines and a little searching on Google can give you many ideas on how to reduce your contribution to light pollution. 24. It is implied in Paragraph 3 that the best way to deal with light pollution is ________. A. reducing the output of the lights B. avoiding the use of unnecessary lighting C. educating people about light pollution D. inventing environmentally- friendly lights 25. Which of the following is the effect of light pollution? A. Many animals species have died out. B. More traffic accidents happen every day. C. The air we breathe may be polluted. D. It is much easier for us to watch meteor showers. 26. What can be inferred from the text? A. We are almost at a loss how to deal with light pollution. B. Global warming results in light pollution in some way. C. Astronauts can’t see clearly in space nowadays. D. Some animals use natural light to direct their movements. 27. What will probably be provided following the last paragraph? A. Helpful tips for surfing the Internet. B. approaches to decreasing light pollution. C. Benefits of searching on Google. D. More bad effects of light pollution.
