weather accompanied my great buy． I immediately jumped up on my bicycle seat and started home． My first ride home was orderly．To be safe, I stayed with a“pack”of bikers while cars on the streets came running swiftly out of nowhere at times．I didn't want to get hit．So I took the ride carefully． Crossing the streets was the biggest problem. It was a lot like crossing a major highway back in the United States．The streets here were wide，so crossing took time， skill and a little bit of luck． I finally made it home．The feeling on the bicycle was amazing. The air hitting my face and going through my hair was wonderful．I was sitting on top of the world as I passed by places and people．Biking made me feel alive． 21. According to the author, why are bicycles still popular in China today? A. Because they are traditional and safe． B. Because they are convenient and inexpensive． C. Because they are colorful and available． D. Because they are fast and environment friendly． 22. How did the author feel about his street crossing? A. It was boring． C. It was lively． B. It was difficult． D. It was wonderful．
23. Which of the following best describes the author’s biking experience? A. The author enjoyed showing off his biking skills． B. The author was annoyed by the air while riding． C. The author was praised by the other bikers． D. The author took great pleasure in biking． B Britons may like to complain a lot, but they rarely do so right now, explains BBC writer Ruth Margolis. They would rather grumble ( 发牢骚 ) afterward. This is because Britons hate to put someone out and cause any embarrassment. Margolis writes, “For instance, I’m much more comfortable just leaving that piece of raw chicken on my plate instead of complaining to restaurant staff. But beware: if this kind of
thing happens when you’re dining with an American, they will most likely speak up on your behalf and not understand why you find this ashamed.” In a BBC blog post comparing cultural differences between the UK and the US, Margolis mentions a few other things that Americans like to do that are offensive to Britons. ● Not making introductions Margolis says most Britons dislike this approach because “talking to strangers without being introduced gives them a stomachache”. Americans rarely introduce a new friend to their friends at parties. Strangers are supposed to introduce themselves. ● “Quite” good Using “quite” to mean “very” happens a lot in the US. But if you are invited to a dinner party in Britain, don't describe the meal as “quite good” if you want to express high praise. To Britons’ ears, “quite” detracts from the “good”: the meal was OK but could have been better. ● Money Talk Americans can talk about money subjects for hours without feeling uncomfortable. For Britons, says Margolis, “Talking about how much we make is unthinkable — even 1ess so than discussing our feelings.” ● Over-politeness “It’s not that I want shop assistants to be actively rude. But neither do I want to expend energy responding to someone who's been paid to ask: ‘How are you today?’” says Margolis. In the US, it is not unusual to be greeted by a perfect stranger as “honey” or “sweetie”. But Margolis says Britons find put-on friendliness, especially in stores, deeply irritating. 24. Margolis’ dining experience in Paragraph 1 shows that_______. A. Britons are particular about foods B. Britons are not good at complaining C. Americans usually complain directly D. Americans complain more than Britons
25. Which of the following might Margolis agree with? A. Britons enjoy talking about their feelings. B. Americans introduce themselves at parties. C. Americans dislike talking to strangers at parties. D. Britons feel happy if treated like close friends. 26. The underlined phrase “detracts from” in the text probably means ____. A. differs greatly from C. reduces the strength of B. increases the quality of D. draws attention away from
27. What does the text mainly talk about? A. How to get on well with westerners. B. How to start conversations with Britons. C. Ruth Margolis’ tips on public behavior. D. Some American habits that annoy Britons. C If you had a strange sound in your ear, what would you do? One man in Wales who thought he had a fly in his ear called 999, the emergency services number in Britain. And so did a woman who was worried about her green potatoes. Could she make chips with them? Were they poisonous? She didn’t hesitate about calling the local ambulance service to ask. According to a recent report, more than 31,000 non-urgent calls were made to the Welsh Ambulance Service in the last year. Inappropriate calls are a headache for health professionals everywhere. In the US, prank calls to 911 happen on a daily basis. Many callers use apps which hide their identity. But those who try to be funny shouldn’t be surprised if the police have the last laugh. One man from Colorado was arrested for making more than 1,200 prank calls, according to a report on the US television station KOAA—TV. People who take these calls are trained to stay calm and keep a straight face, no matter how strange the call sounds. “There’s no way for us to know whether the call is real, accidental or a prank call,” said a public safety worker interviewed by the American TV channel. The Head of Clinical Services at the Welsh Ambulance Service, Richard Lee, has
a warning for prank callers. He says:“ When people misuse the service it means our precious time is being taken away from someone who really does need our help.” Indeed, these hotlines are supposed to help the seriously ill or those with a life-threatening injury. You never know, one day, the person who needs assistance could be you or someone in your family. 28. How does the author introduce the topic of the text? A. By giving examples. C. By listing figures. B. By telling a story. D. By making a comparison.
29. According to the text, prank calls are usually________. A. meant to be helpful C. thought highly of B. dealt with in time D. made to play tricks
30. What does the underlined phrase “have the last laugh” in Paragraph 2 probably mean? A. win at last. C. laugh at them. B. never find them. D. know nothing.
31. What does the author intend to suggest in the text? A. Prank calls are usually easy to identify. B. Operators feel annoyed by strange callers. C. Prank calls may cause serious results. D. Prank callers should be punished by law. D Have you ever run into a careless cell phone user on the street? Perhaps they were busy talking, testing or checking updates on WeChat without looking at what was going on around them. As the number of this new “species” of human has kept rising, they have been given a new name — phubbers (低头族). Recently, a cartoon created by students from China Central Academy of Fine Arts put this group of people under the spotlight. In the short film, phubbers with various social identities bury themselves in their phones. A doctor plays with his cell phone while letting his patient die, a pretty woman takes selfie in front of a car accident site and a father loses his child without knowing about it while using his mobile
phone. A chain of similar events eventually leads to the destruction of the world. Although the ending sounds overstated, the damage phubbing can bring is real. Your health is the first to bear the effect and result of it. “Constantly bending your head to check your cell phone could damage your neck,” Guangming Daily quoted doctors as saying. “The neck is like a rope that breaks after long-term stretching.” Also, staring at cell phones for long periods of time will damage your eyesight gradually, according to the report. But that’s not all. Being a phubber could also damage your social skills and drive you away from your friends and family. At reunions with family or friends, many people tend to stick to their cell phones while others are chatting happily with each other and this creates a strange atmosphere, Qilu Evening News reported. It can also cost you your life. There have been lots of reports on phubbers who fell to their death, suffered accidents, and were robbed of their cell phones in broad daylight. 32. For what purpose does the author give the example of a cartoon in Para. 2? A. To inform people of the bad effects of phubbing. B. To advertise the cartoon made by students. C. To indicate the world will finally be destroyed by phubbers. D. To warn doctors against using cell phones while treating patients. 33. Which of the following is NOT a risk a phubber may have? A. His social skills could be affected. B. His neck and eyesight will be gradually harmed. C. He will cause the destruction of the world. D. He might get separated from his friends and family. 34. Which of the following may be the author’s attitude towards phubbing? A. Supportive. B. Opposed. C. Optimistic. D. Objective.
35. What may the passage talk about next? A. Advice on how to use a cell phone. B. People addicted to phubbing. C. Measures to reduce the risks of phubbing.
D. Consequences of phubbing. 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。 While serious training is important for all dogs, playtime is just as important. 36 Use these games to help teach your dog how to play. 1. Hide and Seek Hide and seek isn’t just for kids. Dogs can really enjoy this game. Pick up one of your dog’s favorite toys or treats. Tell your dog to stay. 37 When you are
ready, call your dog to come to you. If possible, squeak (使吱吱叫) the toy or shake the treats. Reward your dog with praise and the toy or treat when she finds you. 2. Fetch Many dogs have a natural ability to fetch. Other dogs can be taught how. 38
Play indoors with a soft toy or outdoors in a fenced-in area with a ball or disc. For dogs that really love to run, try this game of fetch! 3. Find the Treat Dogs have superior senses of smell, and most love to use their noses to find food. Let your dog use her brain and her nose to find hidden goodies. First, have your dog stay out of sight. Then, hide her favorite treats in various places around the room. 39 If help is needed, you can lead her around or point to areas for her to explore. Whatever the game, safety comes first! Remember to watch your dog for signs of exhaustion or overheating when you are playing. Stop if your dog seems tired or shows signs of anxiety. 40 When other dogs or people are around, it may create a
dangerous distraction. A. Then, go to find a good hiding place. B. Try different games to see which your dog responds to best. C. A good game of fetch can be played almost anywhere. D. You can include games in training as well. E. Also be aware of your surroundings when playing with your dog. F. Encourage your dog to play with other dogs.
