A Fifty people died, over 11,000 were injured, and 100,000 houses were heavily damaged or destroyed in an earthquake that struck North China's Hebei Province. The quake, measuring 6. 2 on the Richter scale (里氏 6 .2 级) , hit the area 220km northwest of Beijing at 11: 50 a. m. on January 10, 1998. Scientists made a report of the recent quake. They said that the area of northwestern Beijing, the joint of Shanxi and Hebei Provinces and the Inner Mongolia (内蒙古) were most easily attacked by earthquakes measuring 6 to a bit over 7 on the Richter scale. However, scientists did not see the recent earthquake earlier. Clouds covered a large area in the northern part of North China before the earthquake and experts say that this prevented satellites from correctly watching the temperature at the correct altitude (纬度). Experts say that in the last ten years, about 305 earthquakes have taken place in China with 9 measuring over 7 on the Richter scale, 60 measuring over 6, and 236 measuring over 5. Tens of thousands of people died or were injured. Loss valued over 10 bi llion yuan. 41. When the earthquake attacked the area, most people there were unlikely to ____. A. sleep in bed B. work in the fields C. walk in the streets D. stay at home 42. The report shows that about nine earthquakes in the past ten years are measured over ____ on the Richter scale. A. 7 B.5 C.9 D.6 43. It can be inferred from the report that the damage caused by the earthquakes could be much less heavy if ____. A. all the people stayed outside B. the earthquake happened at midnight C. the people had been warned earlier D. the earthquake scale was lower than 6. 2 only 44. Which of the following can be reasonable except ____. A. We can not stop earthquakes B. Scientists are working hard at the researches on earthquakes C. We can do our best to have fewer damages than ever D. Nothing can be done on earthquakes B Are we getting more stupid? According to Gerald Crabtree, a scientist at Stanford University in the US, we are. You may not want to hear this, but Crabtree believes that human intelligence reached its peak more than 2,000 years ago and ever since then has been going downhill. ―If an average Greek from 1,000 BC were transported to modern times, he or she would be one of the brightest among us,‖ Crabtree told The Guardian. At the heart of Crabtree’s thinking is a simple idea. In the past, intelligence was critical for survival when our ancestors had to avoid dangerous animals and hunt for food. The difference of being smart or stupid is often life or death. However, after the spread of agriculture, when our ancestors began to live in dense farming communities, the need to keep their intelligence in peak condition gradually reduced. This is not hard to understand. Most of the time, pressure is what keeps us going – you need the pressure from your teachers to finish your homework; the pressure of looking pretty prompts(促使) you to lose weight when summer comes. And the same is also true of our intelligence – if we think less, we become less smart. These mutations(变异) are harmful to our intelligence and they were all developed in the past 3,000 years. The other evidence that Crabtree holds is in our genes. He found that among the 2,000 to 5,000 genes that we have that determine human intelligence , there are two or more mutations in each of us. However, Crabtree’s theory has been criticized by some who say that early humans may have better hunting and surviving abilities, but people today have developed a more diverse intelligence. For example, spearing a tiger doesn’t necessarily require more brainpower than playing chess or writing a poem. Moreover, the power of modern education means a lot more people have the opportunity to learn nowadays. ―You wouldn’t get Stephen Hawking 2,000 years ago. He just wouldn’t exist,‖ Thomas Hills of the University of Warwick, UK, told Live Science. ―But now we have people of his intellectual capacity doing things and making insights(洞察力) that we would never have achieved in our environment of evolutionary adaptation.‖

45. What is Crabtree’s recent finding according to the article? A. The Greeks from 1,000 BC could have been the smartest in human history. B. Our ancient ancestors had no better surviving abilities than we do nowadays. C. Humans have been getting steadily more intelligent since the invention of farming. D. Mutations in genes that decide human intelligence have affected the development of intelligence. 46. According to Crabtree, ancient humans _______. A. had much more genes that determine hum an intelligence B. were forced to be smart due to natural selection pressures C. relied more on group intelligence than individual intelligence D. developed a diverse intelligence to adapt to the hard realities 47. Some argue that Crabtree’s theory is false because they think _______. A. people today are under much more pressure than early humans B. it’s ridiculous to compare a hunter’s and a poet’s intelligence C. modern education is far more advanced than ancient education D. human intelligence nowadays is different from that of the distant past 48. What is Thomas Hills’ attitude toward Crabtree’s theory? A. Supportive B. Unfavorable C. Worried D. Confused C When Frida Kahlo's paintings were on show in London, a poet described her paintings as “ a ribbon (丝带) around a bomb”. Such comments seem to suggest Kahlo had a big influence on the art world of her time. Sadly, she is actually a much bigger name today than she was during her time. Born in 1907 in a village near Mexico City , Kahlo suffered from polio(小儿麻痹症)at the age of seven. Her spine (脊柱) became bent as she grew older. Then, in 1925, her back was broken in several places in a school-bus accident. Throughout the rest of her life, the artist had many operations, but noting was able to cure the terrible pain in her back. However, the accident had an unexpected side effect. While lying in her bed recovering, Kahlo taught herself to paint. In 1929, she got married to Diego Rivera, another famous Mexican artist. Rivera’ s strong influences on Kahlo’ s style can be seen in her early works, but her later works from the 1940s, known today as her best works, show less influence from her husband. Unfortunately, her works did not attract much attention in the 1930s and1940s, even in her home country. Her first one-woman show in Mexico was not held until 1953. For more than a decade after her death in 1954, Kahlo’s works remained largely unnoticed by the world, but in the 1970s her works began to gain international fame at last. 49. What does the phrase “a much bigger name” in paragraph 1 most nearly mean? A. a far better artist B. a much more famous personC. a much stronger person D. a far more gifted artist 50. The terrible pain Kahlo suffered was caused by . A. back injuries B. her bent spine C. polio D. the operations she had 51. Kahlo’s style had become increasingly independent since the . A.1930s B. 1970s C. 1950s D. 1940s 52. What is author’s attitude toward Kahlo? A. Devotion B. Encouragement C. Worry D. Sympathy D Even at school there had been an unhealthy competition between George and Richard. ―I’ll be the first millionaire in Coleford!‖ Richard used to boast. ―And you’ll be sorry that you knew me,‖ George would reply ―because I’ll surely be the best lawyer in our town!‖ After graduation, George never became a lawyer and Richard was anybody but a millionaire …. Instead, it happened that both men opened bookshops on opposite sides of Coleford High Street, while it was hard to make much money from books then, which made the competition between them worse. Eventually, Richard closed down his, dreaming of making a fortune elsewhere. Now, with only one bookshop in the town, business was better for George. But sometimes he sat in his narrow old

kitchen and gazed out of the dirty window, thinking about his former rival (竞争对手)。Perhaps he missed him? George was very interested in old dictionaries, and he had recently found a collector in Australia who was selling a rare first edition. When the parcel arrived, the book was in perfect condition and George was quite delighted. But while he was having lunch, George glanced at the photo in the newspaper that the book had been wrapped in. He was astonished — the smiling face was older than he remembered but unmistakable! Trembling, George started reading: ―Bookends Company has bought ten bookstores from its competitors. The company, owned by multi-millionaire Richard Pike, is now the largest bookseller in this country.‖ 53. George and Richard were at school. A. roommates B. good friends C. competitors D. booksellers 54. How did George feel about Richard after his disappearance? A. He envied Richard’s good fortune very much. B. He thought about Richard from time to time. C. He felt unlucky with no more rival in the town. D. He was unhappy of Richard’s disappearance. 55. George got information about Richard from . A. a dictionary collector in Australia B. one of Richard’s competitors C. some rare edition of a dictionary D. the wrapping paper of a book 56. What happened to George and Richard in the end? A. Both George and Richard became millionaires by selling books. B. Both of them realized their original ambitions, which were the same. C. George established a successful business while Richard was missing. D. Richard became a millionaire while George had no great success. E Do dogs understand us? Be careful what you say around your dog. It might understand more than you think. A border collie named Rico recognizes the names of about 200 objects, say researchers in Germany. The dog also appears to be able to learn new words as easily as a 3-year-old child. Its word-learning skills are as g ood as those of a parrot or chimpanzee(黑猩猩). In one experiment, the researchers took all 200 items that Rico is supposed to know and divided them into 20 groups of 10 objects. Then the owner told the dog to go and fetch one of the items and bring it back. In four tests, Rico got 37 out of 40 commands right. As the dog couldn't see anyone to get clues, the scientists believe Rico must understand the meanings of certain words. In another experiment, the scientists took one toy that Rico had never seen before and put it in a room with seven toys whose names the dog already knew. The owner then told Rico to fetch the object, using a word the dog had never heard before. The correct object was chosen in seven out of l0 tests, suggesting that the dog had worked out the answer by process of elimination(排除法). A month later, Rico remembered half of the new names, which is even more impressive. Rico is thought to be smarter than the average dog. For one thing, Rico is a border collie, a breed (品种)known for its mental abilities. In addition, the 9-year-old dog has been trained to fetch toys by their names since the age of nine months. It's hard to know if all dogs understand at least some of the words we say. Even if they do, they can't talk back. Still, it wouldn't hurt to sweet-talk your dog every now and then. You might just get a big, wet kiss in return! 57. From paragraph 2 we know that __ . A. animals are as clever as human beings B. dogs are smarter than parrots and chimpanzees C. chimpanzees have very good word-learning skills D. dogs have similar 'learning abilities as 3-year-old children 58. Both experiments show that . A. Rico is smart enough to get all commands right B. Rico can recognize different things including toys C. Rico has developed the ability of l earning mathematics D. Rico won't forget the names of objects once recognizing them

59. Which of the following statements is true? A. The purpose of the experiments is to show the border collie's mental abilities. B. Rico has a better memory partly because of its proper early training. C. The border collie is world-famous for recognizing objects. D. Rico is born to understand its owner's commands. 60. What does the writer want to tell us? A. To train your dog. B. To talk to your dog. C. To be friendly to your dog. D. To be careful with your dog. 第二节:下面文章中有 5 处 (第 61~65) 需要添加小标题。请从(A、B、C、D、E 和 F)中选出符合各段意 思的小标题, 并在答题纸上将相应选项的标号涂黑。选项中有一项是多余选项。 Do voluntary work List your positives Create a job search plan Keep a regular daily routine Break big goals into small ones Concentrate on the things you can control Keeping Positive During a Long Job Search A long job search can affect your attitude, especially if you're out of a job.

Possibly 作文: The Ten-minute Break Between Classes Time seems to be so limited for us senior high school students. Thus, with so much work to do, a great many students are always eager to seize every minute to study in and after class, including the ten-minute break. However, the outcome isn’t as satisfying as expected. As far as I know, we need the short break, of which the significance can’t be overlooked. As a matter of fact, the ten-minute break helps us keep a balance between study and relaxation. Short as the break is, we can refresh ourselves and get well prepared for the next class. Thus, there is no need to push ourselves to study even during the short ten-minute break. Now I’d like to share with you my ten-minute break activities. During the ten minutes, I will walk out of the classroom, breathe the fresh air, and then make the preparations for the next class. Only in this way can I do my work remarkably well.
