第三部分 阅读理解（共 15 小题；每小题 2 分，满分 30 分） 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，并在答题卡上将该 项涂黑。 A Every people uses its own special word to show its ideas and feelings. Some expressions are commonly used for many years. Others are popular for just a short time. One such American expression is“Where’s the beef?” It is used when something is not as good as it is said to be. In the early 1980s “Where’s the beef?” was one of the most popular expressions in the United States. It seemed as if everyone was using it at the time. Beef, of course, is the meat from a cow, and this kind of food is more popular in America than a hamburger made from beef. In the 1960s a businessman named Ray began building small restaurants that sold hamburgers at a low price. Ray called his restaurants “ McDonald’ s”. Ray became one of the richest businessmen at last in America. Other business people watched his success. Some of them opened their own hamburger restaurants. One company called “Wendy’s” said its hamburgers were bigger than those sold by McDonald’s or anyone else’s. The Wendy’s Company began to use the expression “Where’s the beef?” to make people know that Wendy’s hamburgers were the biggest. The Wendy’s television advertisement showed three old women eating hamburgers. The bread that covered the meat was very big, but inside there was only a bit of meat. One of the women said she would not eat a hamburger with such a little piece of beef. “Where’s the beef?” she shouted in a funny way.
The advertisement for Wendy’s hamburger restaurants was a success. As we said, it seemed everyone began using the expression “Where’s the beef ?” 51. _______started Mc Donald’s restaurant. A．Ray B．McDonald C．Wendy D．Three old women
52. Other people wanted to open hamburger restaurants because they thought_______. A．they could sell hamburgers at a lower price easy to make C．beef was very popular in America make a lot of money 53．Wendy’s made the expression known to everybody_______. A．with many old women eating hamburgers advertisement C．while selling bread with a bit of meat in it McDonald’s restaurant 54. We can learn from the passage that the expression “Where’s the beef?” means_______. A．the beef in hamburgers is not as much as it is said to be B．the hamburgers are not as good as they are said to be C．something is not so good as one says D．Wendy’s is the biggest B One night in March 1999, a man was driving from California to Oregon, US, to visit some friends. He had stopped his car to have some food when he started to hear strange noises. Turning on the headlights, he saw an 8-foot-tall creature covered in thick, dark hair. The creature stared at him for a minute, turned in the road and walked off slowly into the woods. In the past 50 years alone, there have been thousands of reported sightings of similar creatures in the US, Canada, the Himalayas and even Hubei Province in China. The creature is known as bigfoot. D ． at the B ． by a television D．they could B ． hamburgers were
Bigfoot is said to be a very tall (between 2 and 4. 5 metres), ape-like(类人 猿似的) creature that is covered in hair and walks upright on two legs. It is very wary(警惕的) of human beings. Believers think bigfoot is a direct descendent( 后 代 ) of ancient
gigantopithecus( 巨猿 ). But it remains one of the planet’s undiscovered secrets. There is a little evidence(证据) to support the believers’ theory: traces of hair, footprints and body prints as well as the reported sightings. Some people have even showed what they say with photos or films of bigfoot. But so far, no one has found bones or any other definite proof that the giant creature exists. As a result many people believe the evidence is just part of a big trick. The footprints are easy to make. As for the photos and films, they are just people dressed in ape suits. They also say the sightings are not real, just people making mistakes. For example, bigfoot could be a bear living in the wild that sometimes stands up on its back legs. 55. So far what we can be sure about is that .
A. there exist savages(野人) in several places in the world B. there are some traces of hair, footprints and body prints of the “bigfoot” C. bigfoot is a direct descendent of ancient gigantopithecus D. all the big foot discovered have the same look 56. The article infers but doesn’t say so that some people existence. A. may fool the world into believing prove C. refuse to believe D. will soon offer proofs of . B. have definite evidences to bigfoot’s
57. If bigfoot is just a misunderstanding, what they saw can NOT be A. apes skins C B. bears C. ancient gigantopithecus
D. people dressed in animal
With the crazy smog going on in China, businessmen are now ready to grope(摸
索 ) for your wallet. “Smog economy” is stimulating a shopping spree on certain products against the terrible weather. Now let’s see what we have on the list to help us through the crisis. 1. Masks Well, I would say you had better stay indoors to save your lives. PM 2.5 just surged up to 750 in Beijing recently. 3M just sold 220,000 masks of a kind. No.1 best-selling products! 2. Air purifiers This kind of products is rarely seen in Chinese households in the past. They have become a necessity now. I do like these little gadgets, but they are just too expensive. 3. Oxygen inhalers I didn’t realize oxygen inhalers also get a cut in the smog economy. As a matter of fact, your oxygen uptake has nothing to with relieving (减轻) the impact of smog. It might even lead to oxygen poisoning when you inhale too much oxygen. So don’t get greedy. 4. Salt lamps Compared to oxygen inhalers, salt lamps are even worse. Some stores are selling the products at several hundred yuan, saying that they can release negative ions(离 子 ), reduce radiation levels and purify the air. The lamps mainly contain sodium chloride. The boiling point of sodium is about 800 degrees centigrade and that of candle is 500. So how on earth can negative ions be released at only 500 degrees? 5. Plants that absorb smog Yeah, right. Plants Vs Smog. It is scientifically justified (证明) that some plants do absorb pollutants from the air. Money plants and calla lilies are among the best-sellers in the market. Even if they don’t work, it’s good to have some plants in the house anyway. 58. According to the passage, smog _______. A. give some economic chances to businessmen C. makes some crisis come out economy B. is very bad to economy D. have nothing to do with the
59. What is the meaning of the underlined word? A. Giving up shopping. C. Having a lot to buy. 60. Salt lamps are useless, because_______. A. it may cause poisoning release the negative ions C. it reduces radiation level and makes the air dirty very high 61. How many ways does the author think are useful? A. 2. B. 3. C. 4. D The Albinas married when Mr. Albina was 30, and they spent the early marriage in Argentina. Then they decided to move to Chile, which meant they had to cross the Andes Mountains. They and their 20s sons made the difficult two-week journey on horses. One night there was a terrible snow storm in the mountains, during which Mrs Albina gave birth to triplets (三胞胎), a boy and two girls. Mrs Albina now has 30 more girls, including the twins who are 15 months old. The oldest Albina children are in their 30s and 40s. They are on their own now, but 18 of the kids still live with their parents in a two-room house. The house has electricity but no toilet or running water. Clearly, the Albinas don’t have enough money and food for the big family. Why, then, do they continue to have children? The Albinas do not use birth control because it is against their religion. They can let other people take care of their kids, but Mrs Albina doesn’t allow it. “When we were babies,” she said, “our mother left us at an orphanage and never returned. Then a couple adopted my brothers, and I was left behind. I was heartbroken. I promised that when I became a mother I would never give my children away.” So the Albina family continues to grow. They have so many kids that they run out of names and have to give some children the same name. There are three Susannas, three Miriams, two Estrellas, and two Soledades. Will the family stop at 53 kids? Mr Albina is 77, and Mrs Albina is 59. “I am D. 5. D. the prize is B. it actually can’t B. Feeling down in shopping. D. Buying something enthusiastically.
getting old,” she said with a smile, “and I would like God to think of me and consider my age. But if God sends more children to me, yes, there will be more.” 62. What is said about the children in the Albinas in the passage? A. Some children are raised by others. Albinas. C. The children are all twins or triplets independent now. 63. It can be inferred from the passage that______. A. Mrs Albina experienced a hard childhood use birth control C. ten kids in the family share the same name lived in three countries 64. How old was Mrs Albina when the Albinas got married? A. 30. B. 25. C. 12. D. 18. D. the Albina family has B. the Albinas would like to D. Most of the children are B. God sent the children to the
65. What is the attitude of Mr. Albina to continuing to have babies? A. He is very positive. C. He hopes God will give them more. 第 II 卷 （非选择题 B.He doesn’t want to have more. D.He lets nature take its course. 满分60分）

Then he went to New York. He got a part in a play and was seen by the great director Elia Kazan. Kazan was planning the movie East of Eden and realized Dean would be perfect for one of the main roles. By this time, Dean had already had a reputation and was difficult to work with. He then went back to Hollywood to make East of Eden and then made two more movies, Rebel Without a Cause and Giant. He almost always wore the same overcoat and jeans and he had hardly any friends at all. “If he didn’t like you, he wouldn’t even give you the pleasure of his anger. You could be in the same telephone booth with him, but you wouldn’t exist,” someone who knew him said later.
In spite of his poor eyesight, he loved driving fast motorcycles and even faster sports cars. A few days after he finished Giant, on September 25, 1955, Dean went for a drive in his new Porsche. It was evening and the light was poor. Dean was not wearing his glasses. Suddenly, he saw a car in front of him. It was slowing down and trying to turn off the highway. Dean tried to slow down too, but it was too late. He hit the car at high speed and was killed immediately. A few years later, a New York salesclerk wrote a book called Jimmy Dean Returns in which she claimed that she was in contact with Dean from the other side of the grave. Half a million copies of the book were sold. It was only the beginning of a strange legend that goes on, even today. 66. Why did James Dean leave Hollywood for New York (within 7 words)
