His clothes were torn, his hands bleeding. Before we reached him, we saw him fall. He lay a moment. Then he pulled himself to his feet, walked unsteadily a few yards through the woods and fell again. After we got him out, we went back to find the gun that he had thrown down. His tracks showed that for two days he had circled in the forest, within 200 yards of the road. His senses were so dulled by fear and tiredness that he did not hear the cars going by or see the lights at night. We found him just in time. This man, like others before him, had simply been frightened when he knew he was lost. What had
been a near disaster might have turned out as only a pleasant walk, if he had made a few preparations before he stepped from the highway or off a known path. Whatever sense of direction that a man may have, it’s still largely a question of observation. A skilled woodsman always keeps an eye on his surroundings. He notes the shape of a mountain, the direction water flows through a swamp, and the way a tree leans across a path. With these in mind, he is still likely to turn around many times, but he is seldom lost. There are exceptions, of course, and once in a while a man does come across some strange problem that puts him into the “lost” situation. A rainstorm may catch him without a compass in his pocket. Darkness may find him in a rough area, where travel is dangerous without a light. When this happens, the normal first reaction is the fear of being laughed at as a result of his poor knowledge in the woods. He may also be concerned about the inconvenience that he will cause his friends when he doesn’t show up. This false pride may lead him to keep on the move in a false effort to find his way against all difficulties. The person who thinks ahead is seldom in great danger. He’ll be safe if he observes carefully, thinks ahead, and remains calm. 26. The writer suggested that if the man had not been found, ______. A. he would have been shot by a gun B. he would have become confused
C. he would have been attacked by wild animals D. he would have been in great danger 27. According to the text, if a person gets lost in the forest, at the very beginning, A. he will worry about being laughed at ______.
B. he will push himself to find his way out
C. he will feel sorry that he didn’t prepare well enough D. he will feel it is convenient to ask for help from his friends 28. What is the most important when a person tries to find his way in the woods? A. Intelligence. B. Observation. C. Direction. D. Chance.
29. The writer tells the story of the lost man as an example of people who ______. A. go into the woods by themselves C. are frightened when they think they are lost 30. What is probably the best title for the passage? A. A Man Lost in the Woods
B. keep their head when they are in trouble D. don’t know how to signal for help properly
B. Timely Rescue in the Woods
C. Don’t Panic When Lost in the Woods B
D. A Pathfinder in the Woods
The National Trust in Britain plays an increasingly important part in the preservation for public enjoyment of the best that is left unspoiled of the British countryside. Although the Trust has received practical and moral support from the Government, it is not a rich government department. It is a voluntary association of people who care for the unspoiled countryside and historic buildings of Britain. It is a charity which depends for its existence on voluntary support from members of the public. Its primary duty is to protect places of great natural beauty and places of historical interest. The attention of the public was the first drawn to the dangers threatening the great old houses and the castles of Britain by the death of the Lord Lothian, who left his great seventeenth-century house to the Trust together with the 4500-acre park and estate surrounding it. This gift attracted wide publicity and started the Trust’s “Country House Scheme”. Under this scheme, with the help of the Government and the general public, the Trust has been able to save and make accessible to the public about 150 of these old houses. Last year, about 1.75 million people paid to visit these historic houses, usually at a very small charge. In addition to country houses and open spaces, the Trust now owns some examples of ancient wind and water mills, nature reserves, 540 farms and nearly 2500 cottages or small village houses, as well as some complete villages. In these villages no one is allowed to build, develop or disturb the old village environment in any way and all the houses are maintained in their original 16th century style. Over 4,000 acres of coastline, woodland, and hill country are protected by the Trust and no development or disturbances of any kind are permitted. The public has free access to these areas and is only asked to respect the peace, beauty and wildlife. Over the past 80 years the Trust has become a big and important organization and an essential and respected part of national life. It helps to preserve all that is of great natural beauty and of historical significance not only for future generations of Britons but also for the millions of tourists who each year invade Britain in search of a great historic and cultural heritage. 31. The National Trust is a ______. A. government agency depending on voluntary services B. non-profit organization depending on voluntary services C. government department but is not rich D. private organization supported by the government
32. The National Trust is devoted to ______. A. preserving the best public enjoyment B. providing the public with free access to historic buildings C. offering better services to visitors home and abroad D. protecting the unspoiled countryside and historic buildings 33. We can infer from Paragraph 2 that Lord Lothian ______. A. donated all his money to the Trust C. saved many old country houses in Britain B. started the “Country House Scheme” D. was influential in his time
34. All the following can be inferred from the passage EXCEPT ______. A. the Trust is more interested in protecting the 16th century houses B. many people came to visit the historic houses saved by the Trust C. visitors can get free access to some places owned by the Trust D. the Trust has a story which is longer than 80 years 35. The underlined word “invade” in the last Paragraph is closest in meaning to _____. A. come in without permission C. visit in large numbers B. enter with invitation D. appear all of a sudden C You may not pay much attention to your daily elevator ride. Many of us use a lift several times during the day without really thinking about it. But Lee Gray, PhD, of the University of North Carolina, US, has made it his business to examine this overlooked form of public transport. He is known as the “Elevator Guy”. “The lift becomes this interesting social space where etiquette (礼仪) is sort of odd,” Gray told the BBC. “They are socially very interesting but often very awkward places.” We walk in and usually turn around to face the door. If someone else comes in, we may have to move. And here, according to Gray, liftusers unthinkingly go through a set pattern of movements. He told the BBC what he had observed. He explained that when you are the only one inside a lift, you can do whatever you want – it’s your own little box. If there are two of you, you go into different corners, standing diagonally (对角线地) across from each other to create distance. When a third person enters, you will unconsciously form a triangle. And when there is a fourth person it becomes a square, with someone in every corner. A fifth person is probably going to have to stand in the
middle. New entrants(新进入者) to the lift will need to size up the situation when the doors slide open and then act decisively. Once in, for most people the rule is simple – look down, or look at your phone. Why are we so awkward in lifts? “You don’t have enough space,” Professor Babette Renneberg, a clinical psychologist at the Free University of Berlin, told the BBC. “Usually when we meet other people we have about an arm’s length of distance between us. And that’s not possible in most elevators.” In such a small, enclosed space it becomes very important to act in a way that cannot be construed (理 解) as threatening or odd. “The easiest way to do this is to avoid eye contact,” she said. 36. The main purpose of the article is to______. A. remind us to enjoy ourselves in the elevator C. share an interesting but awkward elevator ride D. analyze what makes people feel awkward in an elevator 37. According to Gray, when people enter an elevator, they usually _____. A. turn around and greet one another C. make eye contact with those in the elevator B. look around or examine their phone D. try to keep a distance from other people B. tell us some unwritten rules of elevator etiquette
38. Which of the following describes how people usually stand when there are at least two people in an elevator?
39. The underlined phrase “size up” in Paragraph 7 is closest in meaning to _____. A. judge B. ignore C. put up with D. make the best of
40. According to the article, people feel awkward in lifts because of _____. A. someone’s odd behaviors C. their unfamiliarity with one another B. the lack of space D. their eye contact with one another D Marianne Hardwick was timid and unadventurous, her energy consumed by physical activity and longing, her intelligence by indecisiveness, but this had less to do with the inborn characteristics of her
weaker sex ( as her father, Creighton Montgomery, called it) than with the enfeebling(使人衰弱的) circumstances of her upbringing. Creighton Montgomery had enough money to mould (塑造) his daughters according to his misconceptions that girls were not meant to fend for themselves so he protected them from life. What is to say is that Marianne Montgomery grew up without making any vital choices for herself. Prevented from acquiring the habits of freedom and strength of character which grow from decision-making, very rich girls, whose parents have the means to protect them in such a crippling fashion, are the last representatives of Victorian womanhood. Though they may have the boldest manners and most up-to-date ideas, they share their great grandmothers’ humble dependence. Most parents these days have to rely on their force of personality and whatever love and respect they can inspire to exert any influence over their children at all, but there is still an awful lot of parental authority that big money can buy. Multi- millionaires have more of everything than ordinary people, including
more parent power, and their sons and daughters have about as much opportunity to develop according to their own inclinations(意向) as they would have had in the age of absolute monarchy (君主专制) . The rich still have families. The great divide between the generations is the state of the lower and middle classes, whose children begin to drift away as soon as they are old enough to go to school. The parents cannot control the school, and have even less say as to what company and ideas the child will be exposed to; nor can they isolate him from the public mood, the spirit of the age. It is an often heard complaint of the middle-class mother, for instance, that she must let her children watch television for hours on end every day if she is to steal any time for herself. The rich have no such problems; they can keep their offspring busy from morning to night without being near them for a minute more than they choose to be, and can exercise almost total control over their environment. As for schooling, they can handpick tutors with sound views to come to the children, who may never leave the grounds their parents own, in town, in the country, by the sea, unless for an exceptionally secure boarding school or a well- chaperoned (伴护着的) trip abroad. It would have been easier for little Marianne Montgomery to go to Cairo than to the nearest newsstand. 41. The author implies that Marianne Hardwick’s timidity were closely associated with ______. A. the inborn characteristics of the weaker sex C. the consumption of her energy B. the conditions where she was brought up
D. her physical activity and longing
42. Which of the following is true according to the passage? A. Rich girls always share their ideas with their grandmothers.
B. Wealthy children learn at home instead of going to school. C. Middle-class mothers usually steal time for their children. D. Rich parents may have more control over their children than the middle-class parents do 43. What can we know about Creighton Montgomery's daughters from the passage? A. They did not have up-to-date ideas. C. They did not have much freedom. B. They were unintelligent. D. They had no physical activity.
44. It can be learned from the passage that multimillionaires’ children have ______. A. little opportunity to develop according to their own inclinations B. absolute opportunity to develop according to their own inclinations C. more opportunity to develop according to their own inclinations than ordinary children D. as much opportunity to develop according to their own inclinations as ordinary children 45. What is the main idea of this passage? A. The rich control their children's lives without being near them. B. The generation gap only occurs in the lower and middle classes. C. Rich parents have more authority over their children than poor parents. D. Rich girls who are being overprotected by their parents are rather dependent. 第二节 信息匹配 (共 5 小题；每小题 2 分，满分 10 分) A Power Chord Academy is the benchmark （基准尺度） for teenage musician training.

In some Chinese families, children should do whatever their parents require them to do and cannot resist. Parents do all things that they think are good for their children and don’t care their children’s feelings. While children dislike the arrangement their parents make for them, they cannot resist directly, so they take some other negative measures to express their discontent. The current problem is that parents and children lack communication, a heart-to-heart talk. So children have to make some efforts to enclose the relationship. Of course, a heart-to-heart talk is the first thing they need to do. They should speak out of their dissatisfaction with their parents’ arrangements, ask directly what their parents expect on them, and then talk about their own plans, decisions or opinions. The second thing they need to do is to share the housework and always prepare parents a big meal or a small gift on festivals. Once one is born, his/her parents’ next 20 years will only live for him/her, working hard, making money to give their children a good growing surroundings. So children must be grateful for their parents. When parents are working, they should take the responsibility to do the housework. During festivals, they should prepare a surprise for their parents to express their appreciation. 【写作内容】 1. 以约 30 个词概括上述短文的内容要点。 2. 以约 120 字就“青少年该如何与父母相处”这一论题发表你的看法。内容包括： (1) 你和父母是如何相处的?
