三、完形填空 ( 20*1=20 分) Food tastes better if you have to work hard to get it. It’s even true for healthy foods __36__ in fat and calories. That’s the __37__, done early this month, of two scientists from Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, US. They did two experiments __38__ mice. In the first experiment, the researchers gave the mice __39__ to two sugary snacks. One could be __40__ by pressing a lever (控制杆) once; __41__ only appeared after pressing a __42__ lever 15 times. Later, when both snacks were made freely__43__ to the mice, they showed a clear __44__ for the one that was harder to get. In the __45__ experiment, the researchers wanted to find out whether the animals’ preference for the harder-to-get food would __46__ if those foods were low-calorie. They __47__ two different snacks – one that was sweet, and one that was healthy (lower in calories). Some mice got the healthy snack from the easy lever, and some got it from the __48__ lever. When both snacks could be got freely, the mice who worked hard for the healthy snack preferred it __49__ the sweet snack. “Basically, __50__ we have shown is that if you have to expend more effort to get a certain food, __51__ will you value that food more, but it might __52__ taste better to you,” said Alexander Johnson, one of the researchers. “At present, we don’t know why effort seems to __53__ the taste of food, but we know it does, and this effect __54__ for at least 24 hours after the act of working
hard to get the food.” The authors believe this principle could be used to __55__ people to like more healthy food over sugary and fatty snacks. So if you just can’t make that salad seem tasty, maybe you should put the healthy stuff way back in the back of your fridge where it’ll be harder to reach. 36. A. rich 37. A. conclusion 38. A. in 39.

the saloon and drank his beer slowly. He began to think. Business was not good. Nobody wanted to buy anything. He thought about the canvas and the pots and pans on the wagon. Then he remembered the hole in Hank’s trousers. Suddenly, he had an idea---“pants”, he jumped up and shouted, “Everyone needs pants.” He hurried to a tailor and gave him all his canvas. “I want you to make pants with this canvas,” he said. “Can you do that?” “Yes, of course,” said the tailor, “What name is it?” “Strauss, Levi Strauss.” It was the beginning of jeans. Now more than a hundred years later, people wear jeans all over the world and everyone knows the name of Levi Strauss. In the 1860s, farmers, rail-road workers, cowboys and miners helped to develop the new land. Life was hard. They worked for long hours in all kinds of weather. They wore trousers made by Levi Strauss. They were the first people to wear jeans in America. Jeans first came to Europe with the American soldiers during World War II. Soon, workers in Europe were wearing them. Workers liked them: they were cheap, hardwearing and practical. They were not popular with young people generally until the late 1950s and early 1960s. It came suddenly. It started in America and it crossed the Atlantic quickly. It was a new kind of music, a new kind of dance. Rock’ n Roll. The king of Rock’ n Roll was Elvis Presley. Teenagers loved him. At home he wore a T shirt, an old leather jacket and blue jeans, so more and more teenagers began to wear jeans. They liked them tight. 59. All the following statements are True except _____. A. Jeans could first be seen in Europe during World War II B. Jeans were not popular with all the American people until the late 1950s and early 1960s C. Many people show interest in jeans D. Farmers, railroad workers, cowboys and miners were the first people to wear jeans in America 60. Which of the following is the right order in jeans’ spreading?
a. More and more teenagers began to wear jeans. b. More than a hundred years later people wear jeans all over the world. c. Farmers, railroad workers, cowboys and miners started to wear jeans. d. Soon, workers in Europe were wearing jeans. e. Not until the late 1950s and early 1960s were jeans popular with young people. f. Levi Strauss had jeans made at 17. A. f,c,d,b,e,a f,c,d,e,a,b 61. Jeans became popular among the teenagers because _____. A. they were cheap, hardwearing and practical B. they liked them tight C. their idol liked wearing them D. they just came out like a new kind of music, a new kind of dance． 62. The best title for the passage can be _____. A. Levi Strauss, First Man to Invent Jeans B. The Best Trousers—Jeans C. How Jeans Comes Out And Spreads D. Reasons for Jeans’ Spreading C Amazingly, US crime figures have been falling for 20 years now. Of course, the big question is, why? And can any lessons be learnt? One reason could be the fall in the demand for the drug crack. During the 1980s, drug-related crimes soared, mostly caused by desperate crack users. However, according to professor Blumstein, co-author of The Crime Drop in America, news of the dangers of crack use caused its decrease and led to a fall in the number of drug-related crimes. Some say that the adoption of a zero-tolerance policy in many cities has helped lead to a fall in crime. In New York City, for example, may or Rudy Giuliani imposed strict and automatic punishments for all crimes, including minor offences such as B. c,d,f,e,a,b C. a,c,d,e,b,f D.
graffiti and littering. Many believe this has had a very strong deterrent(威慑的) effect. Another reason could be smarter policing strategies. Anti-theft measures and educating the community about car theft has helped see a drop in crimes in many areas. Also, the use of crime mapping schemes that can discover identify crime peaks in different parts of the city has helped police target hotspots. Another reason could be that more criminals are now behind bars. Sociologist John Conklin (from Tufts University) says a significant factor behind the fall in crime in the 1990s is the simple fact that many criminals are in jail. In his book Why Crime
Rages Fell, he says sentencing was merciful in the 1960s and 1970s, when crime rose.
But then more prisons were built and more offenders were imprisoned. Some have linked the fall in violent crime to a decline in children’s exposure to lead in petrol. Jessica Wolpaw Reyes says, “Even low to moderate levels of exposure can lead to behavioral problems, reduced IQ, hyperactivity(多动症) and youth crimes. You can link the decline in lead between 1975 and 1985 to a decline in violent crime 20 years later.” Others say that the drop in crime has something to do with birth rates. According to statistics, birth rates peaked between 1957 and 1961, and the proportion of men in the US in their late teens and early 20s (the so-called “criminal age”) was highest in the late 70s and early 80s. However, as time went on, the proportion of people in this age group decreased. Others claim that videogames have helped. A recent study has suggested that these games are keeping young people off the streets and therefore away from crime. Advocates of this argue that any effects the games may have in encouraging violent behavior is offset by the fact that the games keep potential criminals indoors and in front of the television. Some argue that the widespread use of camera phones makes some criminals think twice before committing a crime and getting filmed doing it. Also, many believe that the mass use of CCTV has also had an effect.
Finally, some say that petty theft just isn’t worth it any more. The resale value of second-hand goods such as televisions, cameras or clothes is now so low (or even non-existent) that most people see no point in stealing. So, what do you think? 61. By writing this article, the writer intends to tell us ________. A. the amazing fact that US crime figures are going down B. the recent statistics showing that crime rates are falling in the US C. the answers to the question why US crime figures are falling D. the special policies adopted by the US police that help a drop in crime 62. “Why Crime Rates Fell” is mentioned in the article to tell readers that ________. A. B. C. D. drug crack can be extremely dangerous crime mapping schemes help the police criminals should be strictly sentenced children shouldn’t be allowed to contact lead
63. The sixth reason mentioned in the article implies that ________ tend to commit crimes. A. children B. young people C. the poor D. crime victims
64. The underlined word “offset” most probably means ________. A. reduced B. caused D For several days I saw little of Mr. Rochester. In the morning he seemed much occupied with business, and in the afternoon gentlemen from the neighborhood called and sometimes stayed to dine with him. When his foot was well enough, he rode out a great deal. During this time, all my knowledge of him was limited to occasional meetings about the house, when he would sometimes pass me coldly, and sometimes bow and smile. His changes of manner did not offend me, because I saw that I had nothing to do with the cause of them. One evening, several days later, I was invited to talk to Mr. Rochester after dinner. As I was looking at him, he suddenly turned, and asked me, “Do you think C. increased D. demanded
I’m handsome, Miss Eyre?” The answer somehow slipped from my tongue before I realized it: “No, sir.” “Ah, you really are unusual! You are a quiet, serious little person, but you can be almost rude.” “Sir, I’m sorry. I should have said that beauty doesn’t matter, or something like that.” “No, you shouldn’t! I see, you criticize my appearance, and then you stab me in the back! You have honesty and feeling. There are not many girls like you. But perhaps I go too fast. Perhaps you have awful faults to counterbalance your few good points.” I thought to myself that he might have too. He seemed to read my mind, and said quickly, “Yes, you’re right. I have plenty of faults. I went the wrong way when I was twenty-one, and have never found the right path again. I might have been very different. I might have been as good as you, and perhaps wiser. I am not a bad man, take my word for it, but I have done wrong. It wasn’t my character, but circumstances that were at fault. Why do I tell you all this? Because you’re the sort of person people tell their problems and secrets to, because you’re sympathetic and give them hope.” “Don’t be afraid of me, Miss Eyre .” He continued. “You don’t relax or laugh very much, perhaps because of the effect Lowood school has had on you. But in time you will be more natural with me, and laugh, and speak freely. You’re like a bird in cage. When you get out of the cage, you’ll fly very high. Good night.” 65. At the beginning Miss Eyre’s impressions about Mr. Rochester were all EXCEPT ________. A. moody B. busy C. accessible D. sociable
66. By saying “you stab me in the back”, Mr. Rochester meant ________. A. Jane was not being honest B. Jane had an evil intention C. Jane’s criticism about his appearance hurt him deeply D. Jane added something that hurt him deeper
67. In Mr. Rochester’s eyes, Miss Eyre was ________. A. irritable and indifferent C. hopeful but rude B. sympathetic and special D. direct and optimistic
68. From what Mr. Rochester told Miss Eyre, we can conclude that he wanted to ________. A. share his troubles with her B. prove that appearance doesn’t matter C. leave a deep impression on her D. warn her not to choose the wrong path 69. At the end of the passage, Mr. Rochester sounded ________. A. pessimistic B. encouraging C. patient D. enthusiastic
70. According to the passage, which is NOT true? A. Lowood school had an impact on Jane. B. It’s a long time since Jane arrived at Mr. Rochester’s house. C. Mr. Rochester is a man who has experienced a lot. D. Mr. Rochester is confident he will get along well with Jane.

六、任务型阅读(10*1=10 分)： Cinemas in Mumbai, Bollywood’s homeland are striking against high taxes on ticket sales. Owners of Mumbai’s single-screen theatres will keep their shutters (百叶窗) down until Friday to protest about taxes, which they say are driving them out of business. More than a third of single-screen cinemas in the state of Maharashtra have closed down in the last five years. According to the Cinema and Exhibitors Association of India, just 700 are still in operation. The association blames the closing down on Maharashtra’s high rate of entertainment tax. Its president, R V Vidhani, says that cinemas must pay a tax for every ticket sold, which is 45%, and this makes it hard to break even. It’s the highest of all states across India. The majority of the states in India pay zero entertainment tax. Mr Vidhani says his members had decided to go ahead with a one-week closure after getting no response from the state government on the matter. It is not just a high tax rate contributing to the shrinking number of traditional cinemas, however. Large costs and declining box office takings also make times tougher. Mr Vidhani has run the New Excelsior Theatre in South Mumbai since 1974. Last week a screening of Bollywood movie Tanu Weds Manu sold just 71 tickets despite a capacity of more than 1,000. Whether it’s a full house or an empty screening, running costs are more or less the same. “Air conditioning, regular business — every expenditure (支出) is the same, but the income has stopped.” The cricket World Cup is not helping matters, according to Mr Vidhani. “The Wor ld
Cup is creating the biggest problem,” he says. “These people are crazy so far as the cricket is concerned. When India is playing, occupancy in the theatre is just 15%.” Mumbai’s city centre is dotted with empty cinemas. So after remaining empty for six years, the Novelty theatre is perhaps more fortunat e than its neighbours: it is to be reborn as a four-screen multiplex cinema. Over the last decade the number of multiplexes in India has risen sharply. Despite higher ticket prices, with more choice on offer and typically newer facilities they pose fierce competition to the traditional single-screen theatres. “Competition from the multiplexes is really tough,” Mr Vidhani says. “Then there is competition from the movie window being narrow. Movies are being released much quicker on television than they used to be so people can pretty much watch movies for free at home. “With rising incomes, everyone’s going out and buying DVD players or VCD players. Content is available for the asking whether it is official or pirated.” Unless single-screen theatres can become special destinations in their own right, while also offering up-to-date facilities, Jehil Thakkar thinks the decline is a trend that will continue, especially as multiplex cinemas spread to smaller towns. “They are large corporate chains,” he says. “They have the ability to spend money on branding and advertising, so to a large extent the small cinema guys are fighting a losing battle.”

As is vividly portrayed in the cartoon,two people have distinct attitudes towards their own ambitions.One of them just gets lost in fantasy while the other invests his effort in realizing his dream.
It mirrors a common phenomenon in our daily life.It is quite true that in our real life there are some people, especially younger ones, who have big goals in their minds, but few of them will take pains to realize them. I am constantly thinking of good plans or having fantastic dreams, but when I am going to put them into practice, I often find some excuses to put them off or give them up. Why? Simply because I am a daydreamer.A famous person once put it that a dreamer can by no means realize his dreams. Once we set a goal, we should put it into immediate action and work on it with heart and soul. What’s more, we should have enough courage and perseverance to face up to possible difficulties and setbacks we may meet in realizing our dreams.
