第一节 阅读下列短文, 从每题所给的四个选项（A、B、C、D）中, 选出最佳选项。
When I was growing up, I had an old neighbor named Doctor Gibbs. He didn‘t look like any doctor I‘d ever known. He never yelled at us for playing in his yard, but was always very kind. When Doctor Gibbs wasn‘t saving lives, he was planting trees. His house sat on ten acres, and his life‘s goal was to make it a forest. He had some interesting theories about planting trees. He hardly watered his new trees, which flew in the face of conventional wisdom. Once I asked why and he told me that watering plants spoiled them because it made them grow weaker. He said you had to make things tough for the trees so that only the strongest could survive. He talked about how watering trees made them develop shallow roots and how, if they were not watered, trees would grow deep roots in search of water. So, instead of watering his trees every morning, he‘d beat them with a rolled-up newspaper. I asked him why he did that, and he said it was to get the tree‘s attention. Doctor Gibbs died a couple of years after I left home. Every now and then, I walked by his house and looked at the trees that I‘d watched him plant some twenty five years ago. They were all tall, big and robust since they have deep roots now. I planted a couple of trees myself a few years ago. Two years of attending these trees meant they grew up weak. Whenever a cold wind blew, their branches trembled. Adversity(逆境) seemed to benefit Doctor Gibb‘s trees in ways comfort and ease never could. Every night before I go to bed, I check on my two sons. I often pray that their lives will be easy. But lately I‘ve been thinking that it‘s time to change my prayer. I know my children are going to meet with hardship. There‘s always a cold wind blowing somewhere. What we need to do is to pray for
deep roots, so when the rains fall and the winds blow, we won‘t be torn apart. 21. With the trees planted, Doctor Gibbs __________ A. kept watering them every morning B. paid little attention to them C. talked to them to get their attention D. beat them to make them grow deep roots 22. The underlined word ―robust‖ in para.3 probably means _________? A. strange B. deep C. strong D. old
23. Which of the following will be the author‘s prayer on the days ahead? A. Have an easy life, without too much to worry about. B. Meet people like Dr. Gibbs in the future. C. Have good luck, encountering less hardship in their life. D. Be able to stand the rain and wind in their lives. 24. Which of the following can be the best title of the passage? A. Growing roots C. Prayers for my sons B. Doctor Gibbs and his trees D. Watering trees
You get anxious if there‘s no wi-fi in the hotel or mobile phone signal up the mountain. You feel upset if your phone is getting low on power and you secretly worry things will go wrong at work if you‘re not there. All these can be called ―always on‖ stress caused by smart phone addiction. For some people, smart phones have liberated them from the nine-to-five work. Flexible working has given them more autonomy in their working lives and enabled them to spend more time with their friends and families. For many others though, smart phones have become cruel masters in their pockets, never allowing them to turn them off and relax. Pittsburgh-based developer Kevin Holesh was worried about how much he was ignoring his family and friends in favor of his iPhone. So he developed an app — Moment — to monitor his usage. The app enables users to see how much time they‘re spending on the device and set up warnings if the usage limits are broken. ―Moment‘s goal is to promote balance in your life,‖ his website explains. ―Some time on your phone, some time off it enjoying your loving family and friends around you.‖ Dr. Christine Grant, an occupational psychologist at Coventry University, said, ―The effects of this ?always on‘ culture are that your mind is never resting, and you‘re not giving your body time to recover, so you‘re always stressed. And the more tired and stressed we get, the more mistakes we
make. Physical and mental health can suffer.‖ And as the number of connected smart phones is increasing, so is the amount of data. This is leading to a sort of decision paralysis (瘫痪) and is creating more stress in the workplace because people have to receive a broader range of data and communications which are often difficult to manage. ―It actually makes it more difficult to make decisions and many do less because they‘re controlled by it all and feel they can never escape the office,‖ said Dr. Christine Grant. 25. What‘s the first paragraph mainly about? A. The popularity of smart phones. C. The signs of ―always on‖ stress. B. The progress of modern technology. D. The cause of smart phone addiction.
26. Kevin Holesh developed Moment to __________. A. research how people use their mobile phones B. help people control their use of mobile phones C. make people better use mobile phones D. increase the fun of using mobile phones 27. What‘s Dr. Christine Grant‘s attitude towards ―always on‖ culture? A. Confused. B. Positive. C. Doubtful. D. Critical.
28. According to the last paragraph, a greater amount of data means __________. A. we will become less productive C. we will be equipped with more knowledge B. we can make a decision more quickly D. we can work more effectively

Our brains work in complex and strange ways. There are some people who can calculate the day of the week for any given date in 40,000 years, but who cannot add two plus two. Others can perform complex classical piano pieces after hearing them once, but they cannot read or write. Dr. J. Langdon Down first described this condition in 1887. He called these people idiot savants. An idiot savant is a person who has significant mental injury, such as in autism (自闭症) or retardation. At the same time, the person also exhibits some extraordinary skills, which are unusual for most people. The skills of the savant may vary from being exceptionally gifted in music or in mathematics, or having a photographic memory. One of the first descriptions of a human who could calculate quickly was written in 1789 by Dr. Benjamin Rush, an American doctor. His patient, Thomas Fuller, was brought to Virginia as a slave in 1724. It took Thomas only 90 seconds to work out that a man who has lived 70 years, 17 days, and 12 hours has lived 2,210,500,800 seconds. Despite this ability, he died in 1790 without ever learning to read or write. Another idiot savant slave became famous as a pianist in the 1860s. Blind Tom had a vocabulary of only 100 words, but he played 5,000 musical pieces beautifully. In the excellent movie Rain Man, made in 1988 and available on video cassette, Dustin Hoffman plays an idiot savant who amazes his brother played by Tom Cruise, with his ability to perform complex calculations very rapidly. Today we more clearly recognize that the idiot savant is special because of brain impairment. Yet not all brain injury leads to savant skills. Some studies have shown that people who have purposeful interruption of the left side of the brain can develop idiot savant skills. However few people wish to participate in such experiments. There are many excellent reasons for not undergoing unnecessary experimentation on one‘s brain. The term idiot savant is outdated and inappropriate. Virtually all savants have a high degree of intelligence and are thus not idiots. 33. What does the passage mainly talk about? A. Idiot savants have areas of outstanding abilities.
B. Human Beings have complicated thinking process. C. The brains of the idiot savants are partly impaired. D. The reasons why people have wonderful skills vary. 34. Which of the following can be done by Rain Man? A. He can play wonderful pieces of classical music. B. He can guess out exactly the length of a man‘s life. C. He can memorize the contents of the pictures fast. D. He can count matches dropped on the floor quickly. 35. What can you infer from the passage? A. Idiot savants have real talents for art and math. B. Dr. Down is the first person who found idiot savants. C. Few people wish to risk becoming savants by brain operations. D. Intentional left brain impairments will surely lead to idiot savants. 第二节（共 5 小题；每小题 2 分，满分 10 分） 根据短文内容,从短文后的选项中选出能填入空白处的最佳选项。选项中有两项为多余选 项。 There is one type of illness in the world that affects more people than anything else and is very deadly. What is this illness? It is depression. Serious depression requires professional treatment. 36 Everyone‘s circumstances are different, but the causes of self-induced (自我诱导)depression 37
are common: low self-esteem, hurtful thinking and a bad attitude. 1. Examine ourselves and set a goal.
First we must look at ourselves, truly and honestly examining our motives for what we wish to achieve. If you are dissatisfied because you feel you haven‘t or can‘t do anything, then one step is needed—to set goals. 38 Think of them as sand; one grain may be insignificant but as a group they form the
beach. Once you have set and attained small goals for yourself, move on to slightly larger, more challenging goals. 2. 39
There are a number of factors that can make us think negatively and one of those is diet. In my opinion, a person who eats a lot of take-out and fast food is feeding their body junk. Start by eating better foods which give the body much NEEDED minerals. If your physical body is happy, it‘s much easier for your mental body or ―thinking ability‖ to be happy. 3. Think about good things and smile
Think about good memories you had, or generally think of things that make you smile. 40 A smile can be the difference between an average day and a great day.
If you follow these steps, positive change is inevitable. A. Go on a diet and keep a good figure. B. Remember, everything you wear costs money but to wear a smile is free. C. However, self-induced depression is something each of us can change. D. Feed ourselves well and be physically health. E. Always start your goals relatively small and easy to attain. F. Good memories help you keep a good state of mind. G. So how can we change the way we think, feel, and cultivate a cheerful attitude? 第三部分 英语知识运用（共两节，满分 45 分） 第一节 完形填空（共 20 小题；每小题 1. 5 分，满分 30 分） 阅读下面短文，从短文后各题所给的四个选项（A、B、C、D）中，选出可以填入空白处的最 佳选项，并在答题卡上将该项涂黑。 Personally I think trains are exciting and romantic.

Nowadays, some phone boxes in big cities are like mini Internet café s — you can phone or e-mail from them. Here‘s a good tip — phone after 6:00 p.m. Calls are cheaper in the evenings, until 8 o’clock in the morning. M: Really? OK, now on to hotels. Hotels are expensive in Britain, aren‘t they? W: Yes, they are, but you can always find a cheaper youth hostel. Look for hostels with the YHA sign. They’re usually clean and comfortable. M: That’s true. 听下面一段对话，回答第 15 至第 17 三个小题。现在，你有 15 秒钟的时间阅读这三个小题。 (Text 9) W: What are some of the good things about being a teenager? M: Well, you don‘t have to go out to work, for a start. Another thing is we don‘t have to do the housework, which is really boring. W: What are the bad things? M: The problem is that you never have enough money. We get some money from our parents, but it‘s never enough. You aren’t allowed to buy what you want. W: What do you think it‘s like being an adult? M: Well, adults have to look after their family. They have responsibilities. I feel more sorry for my mum. She’s always rushing around and she has to go to work as well. She doesn’t have to work on Thursdays and Fridays, but she has loads of different things to do in a day, like shopping, er … cooking, taking me to swimming. 听下面一段独白，回答第 18 至第 20 三个小题。现在，你有 15 秒钟的时间阅读这三个小题。
(Text 10) M: Good morning. This is Bob, your entertainment officer for the day. I‘d like to tell you what‘s on today‘s programme. First off, for those of you who are feeling energetic, the keep-fit class meets in the Ship’s Gym in 20 minutes at 9:00 a.m. If you missed yesterday‘s competition in the swimming pool, then come along this afternoon at 3:00 p.m. for more fun and games. You don’t need to be able to swim and it’s one way of keeping cool as it looks set to be a really clear cloudless day, unlike yesterday, when you probably needed an extra sweater! Now, on to this evening and there‘s a change to the advertised film programmes. Starting in the Ship‘s Cinema at 8:00 p.m. — not 9:00 p.m. as advertised — is the classic movie The Singing Moon. There are no tickets for this event, but as seats are rather limited, you‘re advised to come along early.
