Some of them will try to cheat or cow some others in the way the human beings often do. Here is a fairy tale from Aesop for you to enjoy. An eagle（鹰）made her nest at the top of a high tree while a cat, having found a convenient hole, moved into the middle of the trunk, and at the same time a wild pig, with her young, took shelter in a hollow at its foot. The cat then decided to make all serve her in her wise way. To carry out her design, she climbed to the nest of the eagle, saying, "Destruction is preparing for you and for me too, unfortunately. The wild pig, whom you see daily digging up the earth, wishes to uproot the tree, so she may on its fall seize our families as food for her young." Having thus frightened the eagle out of her senses, she crept down to the cave of the pig, saying, "Your children are in great danger, for as soon as you go out to find food, the eagle is prepared to jump upon one of your little pigs." Having filled these fears into the pig, she went and pretended to hide herself in the hollow of the tree. When night came she went out silently and obtained food for herself and her children, but pretending to be afraid, she kept a lookout all through the day. Meanwhile, the eagle, full of fear of the pig, sat still on the branches, and the pig, terrified by the eagle, did not dare to go out from her cave. Thus they both, along with their families, starved from hunger, and afforded good food for the cat and her children. 21. What was the eagle afraid of? A. Her home would be destroyed. B. Her children would get lost. C. She would be taken as the cat’s food. D. Her family would be eaten by the wild pig. 22. What was the pig frightened of? A. The eagle would kill her young child. B. The eagle would cheat her away.
C. The cat was telling the true story. D. She could not find enough food. 23. How did the cat get what she wanted? A. By running here and there. B. By cheating both the eagle and the pig. C. By waiting and catching the chance. D. By fighting against the eagle and the pig. 24. Which of the following might be the best title of the above passage? A. Believe it or not. B. Animal stories. C. How one can be successful. D. Don’t be afraid. B
Nobel Prize winning author Sinclair Lewis tears the shade from small-town windows and throws a scorching light on the crime, self-seeking, and passion that lie hidden behind the front of quiet Main Street. A landmark in American literature, Main Street is one of the most influential and widely read works of the twentieth century.
Main Street By Sinclair Lewis A fantastic book only you deserve.
―The most remarkable realistic novel, without any exception, that has been produced by an Amreican author about the American Scene.‖ –Town and Country. ―A most searching and excellent piece of work; a feather in the cap of literature.‖ –John Galsworthy Winner of the Noble Prize for Literature and one of the America’s leading novelists, Sinclair Lewis was born in Sauk Centre, Minnesota, in 1885. The author graduated from Yale University, and worked as reporter, editor, and free-lane writer before devoting his full time to writing. His literary reputation was made with the publication of Main Street in 1920. Later successes include Babbitt (1922), Arrowsmith (1924), Elmer Gantry
(1927) and Dogworth (1929). Both Babbitt and Arrowsmith are available in Signet edition. Mr. Lewis died in Rome, Italy in 1951. **********************************************************************

It presents a realistic look of the life scene of America at that time. D. It has a great impact in the process of the twenty-first century literature. 27. How much more should a Chinese reader pay if he orders five copies of the same Signet books than a Canadian reader? A. $7.5. B. $5. C. $2.5. D. $10. C There is nowadays in schools a great movement that places major emphasis on higher order skills, these being those skills that encourage the ability to reason. This group of skills involves recalling information, basic concept formation, critical thinking, and creative idea formation. Formerly viewed as the tools of mathematics, these skills are now recognized as necessary to abilities across the curriculum. Higher order thinking skills are now recognized as important for those who will enter the twenty-first century work force. Preparing young learners for their future requires that teachers employ a great deal of inventiveness and creativity in designing lessons that meet the dual challenge of providing the basics as in reading, language arts, and mathematics, and developing the ability to reason. This unit uses detective fiction to address both of these challenges, and the activities that lie here are designed to draw the learner along a path that moves him from the simple skills, such as recalling information, to the more difficult area of creative thinking. Activities may be modified, simplified, lengthened, or deleted to meet the needs of the intellectual diversity found in most classrooms. For this unit I have chosen three separate series of children’s detective fiction. The easiest to read are the Private Eyes club mysteries, written and illustrated by Crosby Bonsall. This series centers on the activities of four neighborhood boys who along with their cat Mildred keep the area they live in free of crime. Each title is centered on one issue and the list of titles is expanding. The reading levels range from about 1.6 to 2.0 and the print is large and well organized on the page. Snitch, Wizard, Skinny, and Tubby
are funny and engaging, and are represented in lively color illustrations. The only issue that could be a problem is that the private eyes are all boys. However, girls are well represented among the peripheral (次要的) peer group. 28. What can we know from the above passage? A. Children have different abilities. B. Reading for information needs more skills. C. Reasoning is higher than reading and writing in school. D. Mathematics is the most difficult in school. 29. Which of the following is NOT mentioned in this passage? A. Basic reading skills. B. Ways of thinking. C. Who wrote the detective fiction. D. How much to pay for the course. 30. What is the chosen series of fiction mainly about? A. How some brave boys find their cats. B. How some brave children help find the lost cat. C. How people help the boys solve the crime. D. How some brave boys fight against crime. 31. What will mostly likely be presented after this passage? A. The Private Eyes club mysteries. B. Other ways to interest the readers. C. How girls can keep on reading the stories. D. Where to buy these interesting stories. D Ronald Hoffman born in 1937 is Polish-born American organic chemist and Nobel laureate(桂冠). As a theoretical chemist, Hoffmann studied energy levels in chemical bonds during chemical reactions. He put computers to use to solve his problems and, despite the complexity of his research, was able to explain his theories and discoveries to the non-specialist. For his work he was awarded the 1981 Nobel Prize in chemistry, which he shared with Fukui Kenichi. Born in Poland, Hoffmann settled in New York City as a child and became a United States citizen. He received his undergraduate degree in premedical studies from Columbia College in 1958. He attended Harvard University, where he received his Ph.D. degree in chemical physics in 1962. He joined the faculty of Cornell University in the mid-1960s and remained there throughout his career. Hoffmann and Nobel laureate chemist Robert Burns Woodward developed rules, based on quantum mechanics, to determine how energy levels in atomic electron orbits influence how a chemical reaction takes place. These simple rules, known as the Woodward-Hoffmann rules, allowed chemists to predict reaction results and was quickly accepted and put to use in a wide variety of situations. Hoffmann later turned his research to a variety of problems related to discovering the molecular structure of inorganic and organometallic compounds. Hoffmann is also known for what is called the Isolobal Analogy, which is yet another discovery linking
all areas of chemistry. It is useful in predicting the behavior of new molecules based on the orbit structure of the components used to form them. Aided by computers, Hoffmann was able to generate a vast amount of data to support his ideas. Unlike the scientific papers of many chemists, Hoffmann's publications contain little raw data but instead are filled with diagrams and pictures to explain his results. His drawings of shaded balloons to indicate eigenvectors, a unit used in mathematics, are now the accepted scientific notation for illustrating this value. 32. What can be inferred from the above passage about Hoffman? A. He left his homeland when he got the Nobel Prize. B. He went to the United States to gain his Nobel Prize. C. He might find the Unites States a better place to learn chemistry. D. His family may have settled in the United States. 33. How did Hoffman make his research popular? A. He applied some computer skills to help explain his ideas. B. He established a special computer system to help. C. He drew some forms explaining his ideas. D. He did series of experiments to prove his ideas. 34. The underlined word ―generate‖ in this passage might most probably mean ―______‖. A. bring in B. break down B. move away D. keep secret 35. Why was Ronald Hoffman awarded the 1981 Nobel Prize for chemistry? A. He established rules to predict chemical reactions . B. He succeeded applying computer science to chemistry research. C. He shared what he had achieved with another scientist named Fukui Kenichi. D. He succeeded in both chemistry and computer researches. 第二节（共 5 小题；每小题 2 分，满分 10 分） 根据短文内容，从短文后的选项中选出能填入空白处的最佳选项。选项中有 两项为多余选项。 Most people actually do not know how to do basic first aid on mild burns. It is normally taken for granted since most people think that soacking (浸泡) the burn with water is the way to go. 36 Once the burn appears, you will surely feel much pain on the actual burned skin. Technically, this is the time to stay calm. 37 Finding a source of running water is recommended. However, if there is none, any source will do. If there is running water, simply place the burned area under it and allow it to soak the water for about 5 to 10 minutes. 38 If you have access to ice or a cold compress（冷敷布）, you can use that as well. You can place the ice or cold compress on the affected area and leave it there about 15 to 30 minutes. The ice will numb the pain and will also stop more injury on the skin. After soaking in water or cooling the area with ice, remove from the water source and allow the moisture to dry naturally. You may also consider patting it down dry with
a towel or napkin, however, this could damage the burnt skin even more. 39 As soon as the area dries up completely, get a bandage or a strip of cloth. 40 This will protect that area from infection caused by outside dirt and dust getting into the open burn. A. Call a doctor may as well help in most burn cases. B. The thing is that treating a mild burn goes deeper than just soaking the affected part in water. C. It is best to dry it naturally instead. D. Wrap it around the burn to cover the open area of skin. E. The truth is that soaking is the last thing to do to deal with mild burn. F. The first thing you will need to do will be to find a clean water source. G. This will relieve some of the pain, cool down the skin, and stop additional burning. 第三部分 英语知识运用（共两节，满分 45 分） 第一节 完形填空（共 20 小题；每小题 1.5 分，满分 30 分） 阅读下面短文，从短文后各题所给四个选项（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。 Nowadays a lot of people will like to have some adventurous experience.

They stayed 68 (seat) but could move their hands. In a clear presentation, a robot read the news without stumbling（结巴）once and recited complex tongue-twisters. The robot, designed with a girlish appearance，can use a variety of voices， such as a deep male voice one minute and a soft girly voice the next. The speech can be input by text, giving them perfect 69 (pronounce)，according to the designers.

Dear Sir or Madam: I ’ m Li Hua, who is the chairman of the Students ’ Union of Xinhua Middle School, Chongqing, China. I learned from the Internet that you are collecting stories of kind-hearted kids globally and I ’ m here to recommend one of my classmates Wang Fei. Not only is Wang Fei good at his study, but also he’s very devoted to his volunteer role—taking care of his disabled neighour who has been a single old lady for years, though his own parents are far away in some city to earn some money for the family. As a kind-hearted kid, he has long been regarded as an excellent example of our school, his good deeds broadcast once in our local TV program. So there is no denying that Wang Fei will be one of the kind-hearted kids you are looking for. Wish your project would take off and Wang Fei’s good impact could inspire more and more kids to be kind to their communities. Yours ever, Li Hua
