阅读下列短文，从每题所给的四个选项(A、B、C 和 D)中，选出最佳选项，并在答题卡上将该项涂黑。
A Tristan da Cunha, a 38 –square –mile island, is the farthest inhabited island in the world, according to the Guinness Book of Records. It is 1,510 miles southwest of its nearest, St. Helena, and I, 950 miles west of Africa. Discovered by the Portuguese admiral (上将) of the same name in 1506, and settled in 1810, the island belongs to Great Britain and has a population of a few hundred. Coming in a close second –and often wrongly mentioned as the most distant land –is Easter Island, which lies 1,260 miles east of its nearest neighbor, Pitcairn Island, and 2,300 miles west of South America. The mountainous 64 –square –mile island was settled around the 5th century， supposedly by people who were lost at sea. They had no connection with the outside world for more than a thousand years, giving them plenty of time to build more than 1,000 huge stone figures, called moai, for which the island is most famous. On Easter Sunday, 1722, however, settlers from Holland moved in and gave the island its name. Today, 2,000 people live on the Chilean territory (智利领土). They share one street, a small airport, and a few hours of
television per day. 21．It can be learned from the text that the island of Tristan da Cunha ________. A. was named after its discoverer B. got its name from Holland settlers C. was named by the British government D. got its name from the Guinness Book of Records 22．Which of the following is most famous for moai? A. Tristan da Cuha. B. Pitcairn Island. C. Easter Island. D. St. Helena. 23．Which country does Easter Island belong to? A. Britain. B. Holland. C. Portugal. D. Chile. B Modern inventions have speeded up people‘s loves amazingly. Motor-cars cover a hundred miles in little more than an hour, aircraft cross the world inside a day, while computers operate at lightning speed. Indeed, this love of speed seems never-ending. Every year motor-cars are produced which go even faster and each new computer boats (吹嘘) of saving precious seconds in handling tasks. All this saves time, but at a price. When we lose or gain half a day in speeding across the world in an airplane, our bodies tell us so. We get the uncomfortable feeling known as jet-lag; our bodies feel that they have been left behind on another time zone. Again, spending too long at computers results in painful wrists and fingers. Mobile phones also have their dangers, according to some scientist; too much use may transmit harmful radiation into our brains, a consequence we do not like to think about. However, what do we do with the time we have saved? Certainly not relax, or so it seems. We are so accustomed constant activity that we find it difficult to sit and do nothing or even just one thing at a time. Perhaps the days are long gone when we might listen quietly to a story on the radio, letting imagination take us into another world. There was a time when some people‘s lives were devoted simply to the cultivation of the land or the care of cattle. No multi-tasking there; their lives went on at a much gentler pace, and in a familiar pattern. There is much that we might envy about a way of life like this. Yet before we do so, we must think of the hard tasks our ancestor faced: they farmed with bare hands, often lived close to hunger, and had to fashion tools from wood and stone. Modern machinery has freed people from that primitive existence. 24．The new products become more and more time-saving because . A. our love of speed seems never-ending B. time is limited. C. the prices are increasingly high. D. the manufactures boast a lot. 25．What does ―the days‖ in Paragraph 3 refer to ? A. Imaginary life B. Simple life in the past. C. Times of inventions D. Time for constant activity. 26．What is the author‘s attitude towards the modern technology? A.Critical B.Objective. C.Optimistic. D. Negative. 27．What does the passage mainly discuss? A. The present and past times. B. Machinery and human beings. C. Imaginations and inventions.
D. Modern technology and its influence. C The other day when I was passing a clothing store, I fell in love with a skirt. I knew it would suit me best at first sight. But when I looked at the price tag (标签), I knew I had to give it up. The love for beautiful clothes has been planted in my heart the day when I was born to be a woman. Several years ago I read an article in a magazine. The article stated that when a woman is at her best time, she is usually poor or tasteless, so she can‘t get the right clothes; when she can afford to buy the clothes she likes, she often finds that they do not suit her anymore. On the way home, I was quite disturbed by such thoughts. It was just a pity, like many other pities. I thought to myself this way. But when I was about to enter the building where I was living, I saw the big mirror placed in the entrance. I saw a girl in it who was in cheap but cleanly washed sweater and jeans. She was rather young, healthy and energetic. For quite a while I was touched by what I had seen in the mirror. Then I almost forgot the tale: A person without shoes cried until he saw a man without feet. Being young without good clothes is like the person without shoes. I should have felt grateful that I haven‘t lost my feet. 28．How did the author feel when she decided not to buy the skirt? A. Embarrassed. B. Wise. C. Relieved. D. Regretful. 29．The underlined word ―She‖ in Paragraph 3 refers to . A. the author‘s friend B. the author C. the author‘s roommate D. a stranger 30．Why was the author touched by what she saw in the mirror? A. She didn‘t feel at ease when looking into a mirror. B. She was reminded of her devotion to beauty. C. She came to realize what she really possessed. D. She never thought over the other side of a person. 31．We can learn from the text that the author considered her love for beautiful clothes as . A. natural B. funny C. silly D. simple D
The Regional Director of the National Heritage Conservation Commission (国家遗产保护委员会) Kagosi Mwamulowe said the Barotse Plains is unique and it deserves to be on the list of the World Heritage Sites. Mr. Mwamulowe said the Barotse Plains deserves to be included on the World Heritage List because it has a rich cultural heritage which includes the burial sites of former kings. The Director said he hoped that the landscape would be declared as a heritage site next year in June. He also said it was important to protect Zambia‘s unique culture for education and entertainment. Chief Natural Heritage Officer Muyumbwa Ndiyoi said there will be a lot of benefits when the Barotse Landscape is declared a World Heritage Site because it will attract many tourists and business investments will increase. Mr. Ndiyoi said the site will also benefit young people as knowledge will be passed down from generation to generation. He was reacting to a question from Nalolo District Labour Officer Jason Ngoma who wanted to know how the people of Western Province will benefit once the Barotse Landscape is declared a World Heritage Site.
And University of Zambia Lecturer Charles Namate said there is a need for the site to be included on the World Heritage List because 50 years after its independence Zambia only has one heritage site, which is the Victoria Falls. Lecturer Namate said the Barotse Landscape was facing a lot of environmental degradation (恶 化), and that‘s why there is a need to recognize the value of its landscape and the memories of dead kings. The National Heritage Conservation Commission together with the Ministry of Chiefs and Traditional Affairs are in Western Province to hold meetings with Heads of Government Departments. The Commission also held closed-door meetings with the Litunga Lubosi Imwiko II of the Barotse Royal Establishment. 32. What do we know about the Barotse Plains? A. It has royal tombs. B. It is being well protected. C. It is not far from the Victoria Falls. D. It‘ll be listed as a World Heritage Site soon. 33. Mr. Ndiyoi believes that if the Barotse Plains is declared a World Heritage Site, _____. A. it won‘t benefit the people of Western Province B. it will attract many foreign students and researchers C. it will contribute to the local economic development D. more people will start to learn about Zambia‘s culture 34. In the text, Lecturer Namate expressed his concern about _____. A. the future of the Barotse Plains B. the development of Western Province C. the development of tourism in Zambia D. the environmental problems of the Barotse Plains 35. What can we infer from the text? A. Zambia only has two World Heritage Sites. B. The Barotse Landscape has been partly destroyed. C. The Barotse Landscape issue is still being discussed. D. Young people in Zambia don‘t know about Barotse culture.

To overcome challenges you need to have that ―never quit‖ attitude in life. If you develop it, you‘ll overcome quite a bit. Motivate yourself.

Let failure and fear fuel you in a positive way. Everyone fails at times. If you fail the first, second, or third time, don‘t give up. 73 Learn what made you fail at overcoming these challenges. Simplify the challenge you‘re facing. Make the challenge easier than it is. 74 As you get through each step, you
develop more confidence and you believe you can get it done, and then you will. Stay positive and confident. 75 You have to find out all the ways you can use to overcome it, and put them to full use with all your effort. It‘s our own mental stability that‘s the difficult part. When you do it mentally, you‘ll actually be able to do it. A. Stay calm and cool headed. B. Think the best, not the worst. C. Start by breaking it down into steps. D. To overcome a challenge, you have to believe you can really do it. E. Most people will avoid any challenge, because they‘re scared of failing. F.

Some of us are having problems with our parents, as they often look into our school bags or read our diaries. I fully understand why we are not comfortable about it, but there‘s no need to feel too sad. Our parents are checking our bags or diaries to make sure we‘re not getting into any trouble. They have probably heard some horrible stories about other kids and thought we might do the same. Or perhaps they just want to connect with us but are doing it all wrong. My suggestion is: Tell them we want them to trust us as much as we‘d like to trust them. If you don‘t think you can talk to them, write them a letter and leave it lying around—they are bound to read it. Thank you for listening!
