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) The Great Barn Adventure One morning when I was 11, I explored the town’s abandoned round grain barn（谷仓）. I found a chained sliding door that was wide enough for me to pass through. Inside, there was a heavy smell of dead mice in the dark. After my eyes adjusted, I noticed a shaft (升 降机井) that rose all the way to the top of the barn. On one side was a one-man elevator with a long rope and roller. I stepped onto the platform and gave the rope a drag and the elevator began sliding up the shaft, but stopped halfway. After a brief panic attack, I noticed holes in the wall at regular intervals, forming a ladder. For reasons known only to an 11-year-old, I decided it would be better to go up than down. So, with shaking hands, I began climbing the wall. After what seemed like forever, I reached the top of the shaft. I stood up, dusted myself off and found absolutely nothing of interest. It was just an empty room with a ladder leading up to the roof. I climbed all the way up here for this? Then I noticed a fire extinguisher （灭火器） , which I’d always wanted to shoot off. So this was the chance of a lifetime. I tried it, and much to my surprise, the thing worked! It shot out a thick
cloud of powder that instantly filled the room. I couldn’t breathe. I was going to choke to death, and they’d probably never even find my body. Luckily, I remembered the ladder to the roof. I climbed up, popped the straw roof and saw a bright blue sky. I suddenly realized the dust and powder pouring out of the top could draw attention. So when the dust had settled, I climbed down and slipped out of the chained door. I’m not sure if I was more excited about being alive or about not being caught, but I ran all the way back home. 21.

The genius went to a grammar school when he was only 6 years old and graduated just within 7 months. At the age of 11, he became the youngest student of the Harvard University. He graduated with high scores at the age of 16 and entered Harvard Law School at 18. Gifted with an amazing IQ between 220 and 230, Terence Tao makes it to this list of the people with the highest IQ in the world. Born in Adelaide, Australia in 1975, this genius first displayed his incredible intelligence at a mere age of 2, when he managed to solve basic arithmetic questions on his own. At the age of 16, he graduated with both Master' s and Bachelor' s degrees at the Flinders University. He has been considered as '' Mr. Fix it " by Charles Fefferman, who is a professor of Mathematics at Princeton University, and many other mathematicians want to interest him in their problems. This 31-year-old Japanese-American astrophysicist lands him third in this list. At the age of 12, Christopher Hirata already worked on college-level courses, around the time most of us were just in the 7th grade. At the age of 13, this gifted kid became the youngest American to have ever won the gold medal in the International physics Olympiad. At the age of 16, he was already working with NASA on its project to conquer planet Mars. After he was awarded the Ph. D. at Princeton University, he went back to California Institute of Technology. The next person with very high IQ is Albert Einstein. With an IQ between 160 and 190, Albert Einstein is the genius behind the theory of relativity, which has had great impact on the world of science. He possessed such an amazing ability that after his death, researchers were eager to preserve and make research on his brain in search for clues to his exceptional brilliance, which to this day, has remained a mystery.
28. About William, which of the following is true? A. His IQ reached between 220 and 230. B. At the age of 16, he graduated from a grammar school. C. At the age of 6, he graduated with both Master' s and Bachelor' s degrees. D. At the age of 11, he became the youngest student at the Harvard University. 29.

(D) Until last spring, Nia Parker and the other kids in her neighborhood went to school on Bus 59. But as fuel prices rose, the school district needed to find a way to cut its transportation costs. So the school’s busing company redrew its route map, canceling Nia’s bus. Now Nia and her neighbors travel the half mile to school via a ―walking school bus‖—a group of kids, supervised (监护) by an adult or two, who make the walk together. Many parents are delighted to see their kids walking to school, partly because many did so themselves. According to a 1979 survey, nearly half of school kids walked or biked to school, compared with only 16
percent in 2011. Modern parents have been unwilling to let kids walk to school for fear of traffic, crime or simple bullying, but with organized adult supervision, those concerns have reduced. Schools and busing companies are finding other ways to save. In rural areas where busing is a must, some schools have even chosen four-day school weeks. Busing companies instruct drivers to cancel extra stops from routes and to turn off the engine while idling(挂空挡). They are also using computer software to determine the most fuel-efficient routes, which aren’t always the shortest ones. There could be disadvantages, however, to the busing cutbacks （削减） . If every formerly bused student begins walking to school, it’s an environmental win—but if too many of their parents decide to drive them instead, the carbon footprint can grow. Replacing buses with many more parent-driven cars can also increase safety risks. A 2011 report concluded students are 13 times safer on a school bus than in a passenger car, since buses have fewer accidents and with stand them better due to their size. And some students complain about the long morning hikes, particularly when the route contains a really big hill. 33. In regards to walking to school, modern parents seem much concerned with the _____. A. safety of their kids B. kids’ physical strength C. time spent on the way D. changes in the route 34. To save money, some schools choose to _____. A. shorten the school week B. take the shortest routes C. stop using school buses D. use fuel-efficient buses 35. Busing cutbacks may lead to _____. A. fewer complaints about long morning hikes B. more students taking public transportation C. an increase in carbon dioxide emissions D. a decrease in the safety of school buses 第二节(共 5 小题；每小题 2 分，满分 10 分) Although problems are a part of our lives, it certainly doesn’t mean that we let them rule our lives forever.
