第三部分；阅读理解（共 20 小题；每小题 2 分，满分 40 分） A Henry Ford was born on a farm in the state of Michigan on July 30, 1863. The
farm was near the city of Detroit. Henry was always interested in machines. He was always experimenting with them. He enjoyed fixing clocks. And he helped repair farm equipment. When Henry was
sixteen years old, he left the family farm. He went to Detroit to learn more about machines. In 1879, when Henry began work in Detroit, the city was a center of industrial development. Travelers could tell they were near Detroit by the cloud of smoke that hung over the city. Detroit was a center of iron and steel making. Nearby mines of lead(铅) and salt brought chemical companies to the city. And Detroit's copper(铜) and brass business was the largest in the world. One thing Henry Ford learned in Detroit was to have the right tool to do the job. It was something he would never forget. After three years in Detroit, Henry returned to his family farm. He remained on the farm until he was thirty years old. But he was not a real farmer. He was a machine man. A nearby farmer, for example, had bought a small steam engine to be used in farming. The machine did not work correctly. Henry agreed to try to fix it. At the end of just one day, Henry knew everything about the machine. And he made it work again. Henry remembered that time as the happiest in his life. He said: "I was paid three dollars a day, and had 83 days of steady work. I have never been better satisfied with myself. " Another thing that made those days happy was meeting a young woman. Her name was Clara Jane Bryant. Years later Henry said: "I knew in half an hour she was the one for me. " They were married in 1888, on Clara's 22 birthday. Henry and Clara lived on a farm near Detroit. But, still, Henry was not a real farmer. He grew some food in a small garden. And he kept a few animals. But he made money mostly by selling trees from his farm. And he continued to fix farm
equipment. It was really machines that he loved. In 1891, Henry visited Detroit. There he saw a machine called the "Silent Otto. " It was a device powered by gas. It had been developed by a German, Nikolaus August
Otto. He was one of the men who had worked with Gottlieb Daimler, who developed the first gasoline-powered automobile. The Silent Otto did not move. But Henry saw immediately that if the machine
could be put on wheels, it would move by itself. He returned home to Clara with an idea to build such a machine. He was sure he could do it. 56. When Henry Ford was young, ______. A. he was absorbed in machines. B. he invented some farm equipment.
C. he was interested in working on farms. D. he had invented the gas-powered engine 57. Henry went to Detroit at the age of 16 because_____. A. he wanted to buy an advanced automobile B. he wanted to learn more about the automobile. C. Detroit was where machines were widely used. D. Detroit's copper business took the lead in the world. 58. Which of the following statements is true of Henry? A. He was more of a machine man than a farmer. B. He had known everything about the steam engine before repairing the farmer's machine. C. He failed to repair the farmer's machine at the first try. D. He always satisfied with his achievement. 59. After he married Clara, Henry Ford _____. A. began to grow food in a small garden and became a real farmer. B. made money mostly by selling some animals. C. was still interested in machines. D. found a job in Detroit. 60. What did Henry think of after he saw the "Silent Otto"? A. Inventing another engine. B. Inventing a similar one.
C. Inventing a machine that can move automatically(自动地). D. Inventing a smaller one. B
Parents are creating an "I want it now" generation by satisfying children's every demand at Christmas, say experts. Youngsters in Britain are becoming increasingly selfish, claim the education analysts. Behavioral consultant Chris Calland said: "Parents want to make Christmas into magical fairytale for their kids. "There's nothing wrong with that. The problem arises when it means always giving into all our children's demands--- even if they are beyond our price range or not age-appropriate." Ms Calland, who runs "Santa Says No" style sessions with colleague Nicky Hutchinson, added: "Many of us go into so much debt providing the gifts our children want that we spend the rest of the year paying off the bills. But so often the gifts we've carefully wrapped, once opened, are just pushed away because the very thing our little boy or girl was once so desperate for, they have now lost interest in." Ms Calland and Ms Hutchinson have drawn up a list of guidelines to help parents manage their offspring's(后代) Christmas lists this year. They say that adults can actually improve their relationships with their children by resisting "pester(纠 缠) power". Ms Calland said: "All too often we say yes because we want an easier life when the fact is that we're only building up problems for the future. We are helping create a generation of youngsters who are blind to the needs of others and the necessity of hard work "Children learn fast--- if we sometimes change our mind, they quickly realize it might be worth lying on the floor and screaming for it. Make sure you and your partner are working together on this. Be consistent. And try not to get caught up in competition with other families or friends. 61. How is the " I want it now" generation created? A. Parents can't afford the gifts for their children. B.Parents become heavily in debt .
C Parents are trying to make Christmas into a magical fairy tale. D ,Parents give children whatever they want at Christmas. 62. What is the main problem with the " I want it now" generation? A. They are quite self-centered. B. They like to live in fairy tales.
C. They waste a lot of money on gifts D. They can't keep their interest in gifts. 63. What is probably the aim of "Santa Says No" style sessions? A. To advise on how to wrap gifts properly. B. To keep children's interest in the gifts. C. To tell parents how to say no to children's demands. D. To advise parents on what gifts to buy for children. 64. According to the passage, we can infer that Ms Calland intends to _____. A. analyze children's behavior C. introduce a new generation B. give advice to parents. D. give her support to parents.
65. Ms. Calland would agree that parents should ______. A. buy nothing for children at Christmas.B. choose gifts carefully for children. C. let children choose their own gifts. C D. avoid competing with others.
On January 15, a little girl from the Chinese mainland was on the subway in Hong Kong. She was eating something. A local man told her not to do so. The girl’s mother told him to mind his own business. A quarrel started. Hong Kong Mass Transit Railway rules say people cannot eat on the subway. The rules say the train will be filled with the smell of food. They say the smell will attract mice to the train. These mice might chew the cables and cause safety problems for passengers. People caught eating on the subway will be fined up to 2,000 Hong Kong dollars (1,625 yuan), Xinhua reported. Signs clearly say “no eating” and the rule is often announced on the subway and in stations. However, the girl and her parents say they did not notice this.
Many people agree. “The parents (of the girl) should have apologized for their mistake,” Zhang Nan, 15, a Senior 1 student at Diaotai High School, Shaanxi, said to Teens. “Quarreling after making the mistake only makes the situation more embarrassing for them.” Reports of Chinese people behaving badly at tourist sites at home and abroad are nothing new. Such reports are affecting the way other countries see Chinese people. Some foreign airports put up signs in Chinese telling Chinese people not to talk loudly and not to spit everywhere. Many Chinese people find this embarrassing. All this shows that one of the secrets to a good journey is to learn about
customs and taboos before you go. A quarrel broke out __________. when the girl and her mother broke the subway rules because the girl ignored her mother’s demand after the girl’s mother’s improper response the moment passengers criticized the girl’s mother The underlined word taboos probably means _________. something you buy or keep to remind yourself of a place or an occasion a group of people who have the power to make and change laws a general agreement that does not allow people to do, use or talk about something D. guidance offering information of local weather, accommodation and specialties 68〃 According to the debate on the Xinhua net, Chinese manners___________. A. are far from being poor B. leave much to be desired C.are only too easy to improve D.are always to blame anywhere anytime 69〃 The passage wants to tell us that ___________. A. When in Rome, do as the Romans do B. Birds of a feather flock together C. Misfortune may be an actual blessing D. A real man never goes back on his words 70〃This passage is probably taken from _________? A. a textbook B. a biography C. a government report D. a newspaper
local 66〃 A. B. C. D. 67〃 A. B. C.
D Internet dating has become one of the biggest and most successful business ventures（冒险事业） on the Internet. Basically, Internet dating is a way to meet people for either friendship or dating without actually having to meet them in person first. The first thing to do if you decide to try Internet dating is to build your profile （简介）, which includes your hobbies, hopes for the future, and so on. A photograph is optional(非必须的), but many sites claim that a photograph increases the number of people who look at your profile. Many Internet dating sites will charge a one-time registration fee to use their services. Internet dating makes it possible to meet people from all over the world. You can even narrow the search down to your area by zip code(邮政编码). Another advantage is that you can communicate by email before you meet in person. Thousands of people have met, fallen in love, and married through Internet dating. It is an excellent
way for shy people to meet. It is also a way for people with busy lives to connect with others, and an easy way to meet people who share your interests. Just as conventional dating and love, there are some pitfalls(陷进) to be aware of in Internet dating. The person you have been talking to on the net may not be who they say they are. Be very aware that there are some people who misrepresent their appearance or private details, such as marital status(婚姻状况), income, and so on, for their own reasons. It would not be the first time that someone has been taken in, and talk shows are full of cheating partners who have been caught dating over the Internet in their spare time. Nevertheless, taking a few simple precautions should help ensure that your Internet dating is safe. 71. The purpose of writing the passage is to ______. A. persuade the readers to go dating on the Internet B. inform us how to date on the Internet. C. introduce Internet dating to us. D. tell us never to date on the Internet. 72. Before making an Internet dating possible, you should_____. A. take a photo C. build a profile B. meet people from all over the world D. have a talk with other people.

You can find people sharing interests with you. D. Internet dating doesn't make a difference to people. 74. What will be talked about following the last paragraph? A. How to make a date with others. C. Safety measures 75. What's the best title of the passage? A. Internet dating sites. C. Warnings against Internet dating. B. Internet dating D. Steps of Internet dating B.

阅读下面短文并回答问题，然后将答案写到题后的横线上（请注意问题后的词数要求） Parents do a lot of things to ensure that their kids grow up to be healthy and balanced individuals. As we grow into adulthood, we begin to realize what
our parents did and how we can give back. If you are living with them in the same house, you must understand how to adjust to them. In some cultures, the kids live with their parents and they are used to having their grandparents around. In other cultures the kids leave their parents’ houses when they can earn for themselves. Now they aren’t used to having their parents around all the time. Anyway, it’s our duty to give them all the love and care they gave us when we were young. Maybe you plan to send them to a nursing home just because they’re old, but it is not a solution. The old people should be given all due respect, importance and time, though they can’t do simple things for themselves any more. We must learn to be there for them. They have listened to all our demands when we were young and they have provided for us all our life before we started earning for ourselves. So we must do the same for them ,give them our due respect and importance and____________. Generally the kids are treating their grandparents roughly, but the grandparents love them. They have more time for them. Thus the kids feel more comfortable with their grandparents. This is very healthy. The family ties become stronger in that way. The parents may sometimes act unreasonably and they may not be reasonable and understanding. It is our duty to be patient and bear all things. This is the right we should give to our parents, as long as it is within our ability. 76. What is the purpose of this text? ( no more than 10 words) 77. What does the underlined word “ it” (Line 2, Paragragh 5) probably refer to? (7words) 78. Fill in the blank in Paragragh 3 with proper words. ( no more than 5 words) 79. Why are the children more willing to stay with their grandparents? (no more than 8 words) 80. What should young people do if their elderly parents don’t understand them? (no more than 8 words)
