第二部分 阅读理解（共两节，满分 40 分） 第一节（共 15 小题；每小题 2 分，满分 30 分） 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 Dear students, Most of us get some exercise walking or riding our bikes to school, but that just is not enough. Why not get into shape by playing the most popular sport in the world — soccer? Two weeks ago, Mr. Goldstein, the physical education teacher, posted a notice about an exciting new soccer club (for Grades 10-12). To join, all you have to do is sign your name and be at school for the fun of it on Saturday mornings. You?ll make new friends and share information about famous teams and players Mr. Goldstein will teach, so you?ll learn basic skills and new techniques to improve your game. That?s good news because soccer is a game you can love three seasons a year. The only time you can?t play is when there is snow. However, it is hard to believe that only nineteen people signed up for the new club. Maybe kids don?t want to give up their Saturday mornings. But if you think about how we spend Saturday mornings now, soccer looks good. Doing housework and watching TV are not as much fun as playing soccer with friends. If you didn?t sign up because you?ve never played soccer before, don?t worry. Beginners are welcome and Mr. Goldstein will give you more help. Just act now! The equipment is cheap. All you have to bring is your feet. The Students? Union 21. What can we learn about the club? A. It was probably started two weeks ago. B. It is available every day except on Saturdays. C. It was first set up for beginners. D. It is just open to students of Grade 12.
22. What does the writer think of playing soccer? A. It is as interesting as watching TV. B. It makes people famous easily. C. It is a very dangerous game. D. It does students a lot of good. 23. The writer writes the passage mainly to __________. A. talk about how to be an excellent soccer player B. introduce Mr. Goldstein to the students of Grades 10-12 C. advise the students to take more exercise D. encourage the students to join a soccer club B My teacher, Mr. August J. Bachmann, was the most influential teacher I ever had. I had gotten into trouble in his class: Another student had pushed me for fun, and I became angry and began to hit him. Mr. Bachmann stopped the fight, but instead of sending me to the office, he sat me down and asked a simple question: "Penna, why are you wasting your life? Why aren't you going to college?" I didn't know anything about colleges or scholarships. No one had ever considered that a fatherless boy from the poorest neighborhood had a future. That day, instead of rushing off for lunch, he stayed and explained possible education options to me. At the end of our talk, he sent me to see a secretary who had a child at a state college. This was in 1962 at Emerson High School in Union City, New Jersey. Well, 53 years have passed, and what have I done with the knowledge he gave me? I gained a PhD from Fordham University when I was only 29. I taught English and social studies and then moved up the chain of command from teacher to principal(校长). I've sat on the board for Magnet Schools of America and represented that organization at the United Nations. I've won a number of great educational awards. But where would I be if a truly caring teacher had not taken the time out of his lunch period to speak to me? It was without question only his confidence in me that helped me forward. I have repaid his kindness hundreds of times by encouraging misguided youngsters to aim higher. If I have saved any children, it is because of him. If I have been a successful educator, it is
because I had a great role model in Mr. Bachmann. 24. The writer ________ before Mr. Bachmann talked to him. A. was an active boy. C. was an aimless boy. B. liked making troubles in class. D. would get punished by his teachers.
25. Which of the following best describes Mr. Bachmann? A. Fair. B. Confident. C. Inspiring. D. Humorous.
26. How did Mr. Bachmann influence the writer? A. He set the writer on the right path. C. He was strict with the writer. B. He tried to set a good example to the writer. D. He helped the writer with his study.
27. What does the writer think of his achievement? A. He is very proud of himself. B. He feels his effort gets paid off at last. C. He owes his achievement to Mr. Bachmann. D. He thinks it an honor to be a successful educator.
C Delicate step gives mosquitoes strength to walk on water. It's not a magical power. Mosquitoes can walk on water because of the angle at which their legs touch its surface. A mosquito's leg is strong enough to bear up to 23 times its total body weight, which is one reason why it can walk on water so effortlessly. This is far greater than the leg strength of other water-walking insects like water striders(水黾), whose legs have been more carefully studied. Jian-Lin Liu of the China University of Petroleum in Qingdao and his colleagues thought a mosquito's advantage might also come from the protective wax and microscopic scales(鳞片) coating its legs. They removed these layers(层) and measured the change in the leg's load-bearing capacity(承重能力), but found that the layers were responsible for less than 12.5 percent of the overall supporting force. The main player turned out to be the angle between the leg and the water surface. The supporting force was strongest when the leg was nearly parallel to the surface. Any angle greater
than 62 degrees would make the mosquito fall through the surface. The researchers believe that mosquitoes can adjust this angle during landing and take-off to ensure they remain on the water's surface. This ability is very important because many species land on fresh or still water to lay their eggs in it. The work could inspire insect-like robots and waterproof materials, the team says. 28. That a mosquito can walk on water without effort mainly depends on ___________. A. its magical power C. the microscopic scales coating its legs B. its light-weight body D. the angle between its legs and water
29. A mosquito gets the strongest supporting force when its legs and the water surface make an angle of ________. A. 0 B. 45 C. 62 D. 90
30. What can we learn about a mosquito's legs? A. A mosquito's legs are strong enough to carry other insects on water. B. The strength of a mosquito's legs is greater than that of water striders' legs. C. The layers of a mosquito's legs help a lot in supporting its weight on water. D. When a mosquito puts its legs smaller than 62°to the water, it will fall into it. 31. The inspiration from a mosquito's legs can be used to develop ________. A. chemicals to kill mosquitos C. instruments to observe insects B. robots to work under the sea D. materials to be used in rains
D Some people are so rude! Who sends an e-mail or a text message that just says “Thank you” ? Who leaves a voice mail message rather than texts you? Who asks for a fact easily found on Google? Don't these people realize that they're wasting your time? Maybe I'm the rude one for not appreciating life's little politeness. But many social agreed standards just don't make sense to people drowning in digital communication. In texts, you don't have to declare who you are or even say hello; E-mail, too, is slower than a text; Voice mail is a now impolite way of trying to connect. My father learned this lesson after leaving me a dozen voice mail messages, none of which I
listened to. Exasperated, he called my sister to express his dissatisfaction that I never returned his phone calls. “Why are you leaving him voice mails?” my sister asked. “Just text him.” In the age of the smartphone, there is no reason to ask once-acceptable questions about: the weather forecast, a business's phone number, or directions to a house, a restaurant, which can be easily found on Google Maps. But people still ask these things. And when you answer, they respond with a thank-you e-mail. How to handle these differing standards? Easy: Consider your audience. Some people, especially older ones, appreciate a thank-you message. Others, like me, want no reply. The anthropologist(人类学家) Margaret Mead once said that in traditional societies, the young learn from the old. But in modern societies, the old can also learn from the young. Here's hoping that politeness never goes out of fashion but that time-wasting forms of communication do. 32. What does the underlined word "exasperated" mean in the fifth paragraph? A. Worried. B. Annoyed. C. Surprised. D. Tired.
33. Why didn't the writer reply to his father? A. He didn?t want to talk with his father. C. He didn?t receive any voice mail messages. mails. 34. Which of the following does the writer agree to? A. Dealing with voice mail should vary with each individual. B. Declaring who they are or saying hello in texts is necessary C. People needn't learn from one another in traditional societies. D. People needn?t turn to Google for help when in trouble. 35. What's the best title of this passage? A. Nowadays: what means should we use in communication B. Nowadays: do you like leaving others a voice message C. Nowadays: what should we do with text messages D. Nowadays: do you need a thank-you message B. He liked text messages better. D. He enjoyed checking his voice

And it?s big. But of course, it doesn?t have an impressive view of the city, which is reflected in the rent. W: Oh, well, it doesn?t really matter to me whether it has a good view or not, and I do like the fact that the underground is so close. Does the apartment come fully furnished? M: Sure. It is included in the rental fee. However, you?ll have to pay for the electricity. Oh, and also the phone line if you want one. W: Actually I?ll probably just use my mobile phone. Well, I think this place is perfect for me. Could I fill out the paperwork today?

One Japanese company is getting ready. They are planning a space holiday centre. It will look like a bicycle wheel and have a hotel for 100 people and a theme park. It will travel round the Earth at a height of 300 km. The centre will likely be ready in 2017. The company chairman says he thinks that flying to the centre will probably be quicker than flying from Hong Kong to Singapore. When they are on board the centre, the tourists will take short trips to the moon or go for walks in space. But what about the cost? Well, the company believes that people will be happy to pay about 100,000 dollars for a trip but they think that as more people want to go, the trip will become much cheaper. An American hotel group is also thinking of building a hotel, called the Lunar Hotel. It?s probably be ready by 2019. This will be on the moon. Most of the hotel will be under the ground so it won?t become too hot or too cold. The rooms will look just like they do on Earth with curtains, carpets, plants and they will have wall-to-wall television. The guests will eat normal food for lunch. The cooks will just push a button to mix dried food with water to become an instant meal! There will be little or no dirt and there won?t be much water, so the hotel won?t wash the towels or sheets — it will throw them away! 第二节到此结束。现在, 你有两分钟的时间将试卷上的答案转涂到客观题答题卡上。 停顿 02′00″ 听力部分到此结束。
