Its first use was as a shade against the sun!

Nobody knows who first invented it, but the umbrella was used in very ancient times. Probably the first to use it were the Chinese in the 11th century BC. We know that the umbrella was used in ancient Egypt and Babylon as a sunshade. And there was a strange thing connected with its use: it became a symbol of honor. In the Far East in ancient times, the umbrella was allowed to be used only by those in high office. In Europe, the Greeks were the first to use the umbrella as a sunshade. And the umbrella was in commonly used in ancient Greece. But it is believed that the first persons in Europe to use the umbrella as protection against the rain were the ancient Romans. During the Middle Ages, the use of the umbrella practically disappeared. Then it appeared again in Italy in the late 16th century. And again it was considered as a symbol of power. By 1680, the umbrella appeared in France and later in England. By the 18th century, the umbrella was used against rain throughout most of Europe. Umbrellas have not changed much in style during all this time, though they have become much lighter in weight. It wasn’t until the twentieth century that women’s umbrellas began to be made , in a whole variety of colors. 21. According to this passage, the umbrella was probably first invented in ancient_______. A. China Greece B. Egypt D. Rome C.

22.Which of the following statements is NOT true about the umbrella? A. No one exactly knows who the inventor of the umbrella was B. The umbrella was first invented to be used as protection against the sun. C. The umbrella changed much in style in the 18th century D. In Europe, the Greeks were the first to use the umbrella as a sunshade. 23.A strange feature of the umbrella’s use is that it was used as__________. A. protection against rain against the sun B. a shade

C.

a symbol of honor and power

D. women’s

decoration(装饰) B There are many places to go on safari(观赏野生动物) in Africa, but riding a horse through the flooded waters of Botswana’s Okavango Delta must rank as one of the world’s most exciting wildlife journeys. Several safari camps operate as the base for this adventure, providing unique rides twice a day to explore deep into the delta. The camps have excellent horses, professional guides and lots of support workers. They have a reputation for providing a great riding experience. The morning ride, when the guides take you to beautiful, shallow lakes full of water lilies, tends to be more active. It is unlike any other riding experience. With rainbows forming in the splashing water around you and the sound of huge drops of water bouncing off your body and face. It is truly exciting. You are very likely to come across large wild animals, too. On horseback it is possible to get quite close to elephants, giraffes and many other animals. The sense of excitement and tension levels rise suddenly though, as does your heart rate, as you move closer to them. In the evening, rides are usually at a more relaxed and unhurried pace. With golden light streaming across the grassy delta and the animals coming out to eat and drink. Sedate though they are, rides at this time of day are still very impressive. As the sun's rays pass through the dust kicked up by the horses, the romance of Africa comes to life. Back at the camp you can kick off your boots and enjoy excellent food and wine. Looking back on your day, you will find it hard to deny that a horseback Safari is as close as you will ever come to answering the call of the wild. 24. What does the underlined word "They" refer to?

Boarding the bus to go home, I saw it was almost full so I found a rail(扶手) to lean against. That's when a young woman, sitting with her child, stood up and offered me her seat."Wow!" I thought.

A moment later a man rose from his seat at the back of the bus and made his way D. B. D. Active B. Slow and

towards me, squeezing past several people on the way. Then he told me about his addiction problems, asked my advice, and just chatted about life for a few minutes. Then he went hack to his seat. Very random ! Watching him go, I also looked at the bus-load of people between me and his seat. He hadn't chosen to talk to those strangers. He chose to talk to this stranger, for whatever it meant to him and whatever comfort it brought him, Why? That's when it occurred to me. I must have Looked Like I had been where he was probably looked like a man who would understand a difficult life.

What do you usually do to comfort your friends when they are feeling sad or depressed? You probably pat them on the back or shoulder, or maybe you give them a big, warm hug. We used to think that knowing when and how to comfort others was an ability that only humans have . But scientists have discovered that apes(猩猩)have this ability , too , according to a study published in the Journal of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences . Two researchers from Emory University in Atlanta , US , went to an Ape Protection Centre in Congo to study bonobos(倭黑猩猩), which are closely related to humans . The researchers analyzed the bonobos’ reactions after more than 370 cases of stressful situations , such as fights and losing temper , and found that some bonobos rushed to hug those that were screaming after being attacked , just like humans would have done . However , researchers noted hat not all bonobos were capable of comforting others . In the protection centre , many bonobos are orphans whose mothers were killed by hunters . They were found to be more anxious in times of tension and to have greater difficulty controlling their own emotions , making them worse at reaching out to help friends in need . “ Orphans , who have not had the benefit of a mother helping them handling their emotions , are much worse at comforting others , ” Professor Frans de Waal , one of the researchers , told The Telegraph . “ Bonobos with moms were able to curb their negative emotional reactions more quickly . Therefore , they pay more attention to others . ” This pattern mirrors the way that human children have been found to react . Those who seem more capable of handling their own emotions – for example , the ones who can calm themselves down more quickly after upsetting experiences – are usually better at expressing their concerns for others 32. The 4th paragraph is mainly developed by __________ .

A. making comparisons C. giving examples

B. following time order D. presenting causes and effects

33. The underlined word “ curb ” in the 5th paragraph probably means “__________ ” . A. express B. observe C. control D. hide ?

34. Which of the following statements is TRUE according to the passage A. Orphan bonobos never give a hand to friend. B. There were 370 bonobos involved in the research . C. The ability to comfort others is unique to human beings . D. Moms play a significant role in handling kids’ emotions . 35. What’s the main purpose of this passage ? A. To inform readers of a new study .. C. To provide better protection for Apes Apes’ . 第二节(共 5 小题;每小题 1 分,满分 5 分)

B. To uncover the mystery of Apes. D. To compare human behaviors with

Most small children love books, looking at the pictures and hearing the story, but as they get older they often move away from books. Join the library Libraries have changed a lot in recent years. 37 Take your child regularly and 36

encourage them to take out books on whatever subject interests them. Not just novels Many parents think that reading counts if the child is reading a work of fiction or a novel. 38 Non-fiction books are particularly attractive to boys. Kids

especially love the sorts of books which allow them to make a decision between various paths and choose their own endings. Set an example If your child never sees you reading, they aren’t going to pick up a book either. 39 Having plenty of books around the house makes reading more

accessible and the normal thing to do when bored. If you struggle with reading and literacy, do something about it by going back to college or attending a special adult literacy course. Make their own books If your child dislikes reading, think about encouraging them to start writing their own stories and novels. Buy them a special notebook. Allow them to write whatever captures their imagination, and don’t worry too much about messy handwriting or poor spelling. A. B. C. D. E. F. 40 So how do you keep your kids interested in books? As long as a child is reading, it doesn’t matter what they are reading. Libraries will have a great range of books for children. There are newspapers printed especially for children. Reading and writing are often thought of as two separate issues. The idea is to cause an interest in books, reading and fiction, and the

rest will develop over time. G. Next time pick up a newspaper or a book and encourage your child to sit

with you and read too. 第三部分 英语知识运用(共两节,满分 30 分) 第一节 完形填空(共 20 小题;每小题 1 分,满分 20 分) 阅读下面短文,从短文后的各题所给四个选项(A、B、C 和 D)中,选出可以填入空白处 的最佳选项,并在答题卡上将该项涂黑。 In a mall village there lived a lazy Brahmin Ramdas.
