第三部分：阅读理解（共 20 小题；每小题 2 分， 满分 40 分） A When my son, Mark, was in the third grade, he saved all his pocket money for over three months
to buy holiday presents. The third Saturday in December Mark said he had made his list and had twenty dollars in his pocket. I drove him to a nearby supermarket. Mark picked up a hand basket and went in while I waited and watched in the car. It took Mark over 45 minutes to choose his presents. Finally he came to the checkout counter (交款处) and reached into his pocket for his money. It was not there! There was a hole in his pocket, but no money. Mark stood there holding his basket, tears falling down his face. Then a surprising thing happened. A woman came up to Mark and took him in her arms. "You would help me a lot if you let me pay for you," said the woman. "It would be the most wonderful gift you could give me. I only ask that one day you will pass it on. When you grow up, I would like you to find someone you can help. When you help others, I know you will feel as good about it as I do now." Mark took the money, dried his tears and ran back to the checkout counter as fast as he could. That year we all enjoyed our gifts almost as much as Mark enjoyed giving them to us. I would like to say "thank you" to that very kind woman, and tell her that four years later, Mark went house to house collecting blankets (毯子) and clothes for the homeless people in the fire. And I want to promise her that Mark will never forget to keep passing it on. 61. When they got to the supermarket, Mark went in _________. A. by himself A. He lost his way C. He broke his basket. A .On Christmas Day. C. After New Year’s Day. B. with the writer C. with his friends B. He lost his money D. His gifts were stolen B. On New Year’s Day. D. Before Christmas Day. D. with the woman 62. What happened to Mark in the supermarket?
63. When did the story probably happen?
64. Why did the writer want to say "thank you" to the woman? A. Because she always paid money for others. B. Because she bought Mark a nice present. C. Because she taught Mark to help people in need. D. Because she collected clothes for the homeless. 65. What’s the best title for this passage? A. A kind woman C. A big supermarket B. A wonderful gift D. A happy family B Green is an important color in nature. It is the color of grass and the leaves on trees. It is also the color of most growing plants. Sometimes, the word green means young, fresh and growing. Sometimes, it describes something that is not yet ripe or finished. For example, a greenhorn is someone who has no experience, who is new to a situation. In the fifteenth century, a greenhorn was a young cow or ox whose horns(角) had not yet developed. A century later, a greenhorn was a soldier who had not yet had any experience in war. By the eighteenth century, a greenhorn had the meaning it has today—a person who is new in a job.
Someone who has the ability to grow plants well is said to have a green thumb. The expression comes from early nineteen hundreds. A person with a green thumb seems to have a magic touch that makes plants grow quickly and well. You might say that the woman next door has a green thumb if her garden continues to grow long after your plants have died. The Green Revolution is the name given some years ago to the development of new kinds of rice and other grains. The new plants produced much larger crops. The Green Revolution was the result of hard work by agricultural scientists who had green thumbs. Green is also the color used to describe the powerful feeling, jealousy(嫉妒). The green-eyed monster is not a frightening creature from outer space. It is an expression used about four hundred years ago by British writer William Shakespeare in his play “Othello”. It describes the unpleasant feeling a person has when someone has something he wants. A young man may suffer from the green-eyed monster if his girlfriend begins going out with someone else. Or, that green-eyed monster may affect your friend if you get a pay rise and he does not. 66. A greenhorn now refers to ____. A. a cow without horns C. a young horse B. a new solider D. a person who is new in a job B. whose thumbs are of green color D. who is younger than his neighbors C. politics D. agriculture
67. A person who has a green thumb is a person ____. A. whose garden is greener than others’ C. who is good at growing plants 68. The author is actually talking about ____. A. language B. colors 69. Which of the following statements is NOT true according to the passage? A. The green-eyed monster can be used to describe a person who is jealous. B. The Green Revolution may have some connection with green thumbs. C. The green-eyed monster was probably created by William Shakespeare. D. In about the 16th century, a greenhorn meant an experienced soldier. C Do you know of anyone who uses the truth to deceive( 欺骗 )? When someone tells you something that is true，but leaves out important information that should be included, he can give you a false picture． For example，someone might say，“I just won a hundred dollars on the lottery(彩票)．It was great．I took that dollar ticket back to the store and turned it in for one hundred dollars!” This guy's a winner，right? Maybe，maybe not．We then discover that he bought $ 200 worth of tickets，and only one was a winner．He’s really a big loser! He didn’t say anything that was false，but he left out important information on purpose．That’s called a half-truth．Half truths are not technically lies，but they are just as dishonest． Some politicians often use this trick．Let’s say that during Governor Smith’s last term(任期)，her state lost one million jobs and gained three million jobs．Then she seeks another term．One of her opponents(对手)says，“During Governor Smith’s term，the state lost one million jobs!” That’s true． However， an honest statement would have been， “During Governor Smith's term， the state had a net gain of two million jobs．’’
Advertisers(广告商) will sometimes use half-truths．It’s against the law to make false statements so they try to mislead you with the truth．An advertisement might say，“Nine out of ten doctors advised their patients to take Yucky Pills to cure toothache．”It fails to mention that they only asked ten doctors and nine of them work for the Yucky Company． This kind of deception（欺骗）happens too often．It’s a sad fact of life：Lies are lies，and sometimes the truth can 1ie as well． 70．How much did the lottery winner lose? A．Two hundred dollars． C．Three hundred dollars． B．one hundred dollars． D．Four hundred dollars．
71．What can we know from the example of the Yucky Pill advertisement? A. Half-truths are often used to mislead people B．False statements are easy to see through． C．Doctors like to act in advertisements． D．Advertisements are based on facts． 72．How many examples does the writer give to show how the truth is used to deceive? A．One． B．Two． C．Four． D．Three． 73．Which of the following is true according to the passage? A．Using half truths is against the law． B. Technically，half truths are in fact lies． C. Governor Smith did a good job during her last term． D．Yucky Pills is a very good medicine for toothache． 74．Which of the following best expresses the main idea of the passage? A．Sometimes the truth can lie as well． C．Advertisers will sometimes use half truths． D．It’s against the law to make false statements． 75. What do the underlined words "net gain" in Paragraph 5 mean? A. Large share. B. Big advantage C. Final increase. D. Another Reason It was a quiet village in which there was a military camp.

But night fell and none came back to the camp. He was worried about it and stood at the gate. It was five to twelve when Mr. Hunt decided to go to the town and see what was happening with the young men. He started the car quickly and set off. At that moment the nine soldiers came back. It seemed they were all drunk. Of course they found the officer was angry. “I’m sorry, sir,” said the first soldier. “I left the town on time. But something was wrong with my bus on my way here. I had to buy a horse and made it run fast. Bad luck! It died and I had to run D. Total saving. B．He’s really a big loser!
back.” And the other seven soldiers said they were late for the same reason. It was the last soldier’s turn. He said, “I’m sorry, sir. I got on a bus on time, but…” Having heard this, the officer became even angrier and stopped him at once. He called out, “If you say something was wrong with your bus, I’ll punish you at once!” “No, no, sir,” said the young man. “My bus was all right, but the dead horses were in its way!” 76.
