thrown into a garbage bin to die，and Winnie as a week-old orphan hiding under a barn， so helpless that Cathy’s husband， Eric， had to feed her milk with an eyedropper． As the Keeslings recalled (回忆)it，a gas-driven pump being used broke down， spreading carbon monoxide through the house．By the time Winnie went to rescue， the couple’s 14·year-old son already passed out．“Winnie jumped on the bed and was clawing at me，with a kind of angry sound．”Cathy Keesling said．The state police responding to her 911 call said the family was only minutes from death，judging by the amount of poisonous (有毒的) gas in the house． Amy Paul’s husband was at his job when she took a midday break from making jewelry and bit into an apple．“Normally I peel them．but I read in Good Housekeeping Magazine that the skin has all the nutrients，so I ate the skin，and that’s what caused me to choke，”she recalled．“ I couldn’t breathe and I was in panic when Toby jumped on me．He never does that，but he did， and saved my life．” Both Toby and Winnie accompanied their owners to the awards luncheon． 61．Why did Amy Paul choke on a piece of apple? A．She was too young to care for herself． B．She had a big bite． C．The apple was too hard． D．She didn’t peel the skin as usual． 62． Which of the following has the similar meaning to the underlined word “ infancy ” in paragraph 4 ? A．middle age B．youth C．babyhood D．agedness 63．What caused the carbon monoxide to spread through the house?

A．So Smart Animals Are B．Dog and Cat Honored for Saving Their Masters C．Unforgettable Experiences D．Great Honors for Cat and Dog B
Tanzania ---- Serengeti National Park During the annual migration（迁徙）, when the wildebeests（羚羊）and zebras pack up and leave their living areas to find fresher ones , the Serengeti is an astonishing place to be . It’s a very good travel spot in Africa at other times of the year too , but the migration has been ranked by many as one of the wonders of the natural world . Kenya ---- Masai Mara National Park If you want to see the big cats , this wildlife park is the best of the best . Lion , leopard and cheetah（猎豹）abount（丰富）and they are relatively easy to spot because of the grassland vegetation which means you get good views for miles around . South Africa --- Kruger National Park For the variety of species , no other places in Africa can come close to the
Kruger Park . And because it is so large it has a number of different ecosystems that you can pass through in your search for animals and birds . It is one of the best managed parks in Africa and the accommodation is well-equipped , too . Zambia ---- South Luangwa National Park South Luangwa is a diamond in the rough , just waiting to be brought to its rightful place in the crown of prime Africa trips . It has been regarded as one of the best places in Africa to see the special leopard and it is the birthplace of the walking travel . 65．If you want to see wild animals as many as possible，you will go to __________． A．Serengeti National Park B．Masai Mara National Park C．Kruger National Park D．South Luangwa National Park 66．In which parks can visitors see leopards ? A．Masai Mara National Park and South Luangwa National Park B．Serengeti National Park and Kruger National Park C．Kruger National Park and South Luangwa National Park D．Serengeti National Park and South Luangwa National Park 67．If you want to see wildlife on foot，you should go to __________． A．Serengeti National Park B．Masai Mara National Park C．Kruger National Park D．South Luangwa National Park 68．The writer’s purpose in writing the text is to __________． A．tell us something about natural animals B．discuss some problems in African travel industry C．persuade more people to protect wild animals D．introduce to us some top natural parks in Africa C Playing computer games is getting serious．Washington teacher Tammie Schrader is so enthusiastic about computer games in education that she thinks they can be used to teach programming skills which will help students in college starting in middle school． Canadian teacher Justin Holladay wrote a few simple games to help his students practice math skills，and when they caught on，he started his own company to create more of them． And the University of Washington’s Zoran Popovic got more than 4,000 Washington students to master linear equations (线性方程) this spring by playing a computer game for just a few hours． The growing availability of inexpensive tablet computers and a new generation of young teachers who grew up playing on computers have contributed to interest in games for serious purposes． “Six or seven years ago，selling games to schools was almost impossible，”said David Martz of Muzzy Lane Software，a Boston，US company that produces games for publishers such as McGraw-Hill．Now，he said，schools are interested in the promise of games-perhaps because gaming is so much more mainstream (主流的)． Software and education companies have tried for many years to combine
youngsters’ passion for computer games with educational progress，without much success． Popovic think the first efforts to combine games with education fell flat because they were created by commercial ( 商业的 ) companies ． These companies were more interested in selling products than seeing students learn a skill． Teachers say there are some pretty good games in the market-place now． Holladay，the math teacher form Alberta，Canada，began moving paper-based math games to the iPad，building games that allowed students to compete with each other and giving him instant feedback (反馈) on their progress． The games help a lot the lesson he was teaching，and his students had fun playing， he said． “They were a lot more interested．’’ 69．What can we conclude from the first four paragraphs? A．Many US teachers devote themselves to creating computers games for students． B．An increasing number of teachers think computer games can help students learn． C ． Teachers hold different views toward the application of computer games in schools． D．Many US schools are encouraging students to play computer games to relax． 70．The best title for the passage would be __________ . A．Computer Games in class B．Selling games to schools C．The mainstream computer games D．Commercial games 71．The underlined phrase “fell flat” in paragraph 8 probably means __________． A．turn out successful B．attracted attention C．wasted money D．didn’t have the intended 72． What is the Holladay’s attitude toward the idea of using computer games in class ? A．It allows students to learn il3 a fun wav． B．It is not as helpful as people thought it would be． C．It reduces the interaction between teachers and students . D．It sounds good but it makes it inconvenient for teachers to get feedback from students . D Lots of people are unhappy with their present weight , but most aren’t sure how to change it . You may want to look like the models or actors in magazines and on TV , but those goals might not be healthy or realistic for you . Being healthy is really about being at a weight that is right for you . The best way to find out if you are at a healthy weight or if you need to lose or gain weight is to talk to a doctor or dietitian（营养学家）. If it turns out that you can benefit from weight loss , then you can follow a few of the simple suggestions listed below to get started . ____________________ .

Stored at minus-20 degrees centigrade，so they can last for thousands of years， the seeds await the day that scientists hope never comes—when the species no longer exist in the wild． It is a race against time，Smith said，because in the last ten years alone， 20 plants held in the bank have already been wiped out in the wild．He estimates that between a third and a quarter will become extinct this century． “ It is pressing and it is happening now． An area， the size of England， is cleared of primary vegetation (植被) every year．” Smith said． Because most of the world’s food and medicines come from nature，protecting wild plant species is quite important，scientists say．There are already many other seed banks safeguarding food crops，which only account for 0.6 percent of plant diversity． For Kew’s next goal—-to collect a quarter of wild varieties (种类) by 2020—the botanists need 10 million pounds a year, or a further l00 million pounds on top of the 40 million they have already collected． 77．What’s the final purpose of the Britain’s seed bank? A．To collect enough money for the project． B．To safeguard food crops． C．To protect wild plants from extinction． D．To help scientists study wild plants． 78．We can learn from the passage that __________ . A．the seeds in the bank can be used now and then all over the world B．India and Brazil haven’t joined in the Seed Bank Project at present C．there is only one seed bank in the world at present D．the wild plants in places like India and China will never die out 79．What does the underlined word “it” in paragraph 7 refer to? A．The extinction of plant species． B．The Millennium Seed Bank Project． C．Britain’s seed bank． D．Kew Gardens’ next goal． 80．Which of the following isn’t spoken about in the passage? A．The global partnership of collecting wild plant species． B．The temperature condition of the wild plant species in the bank． C．The government’s support for the seed bank project by giving money D．Scientists’ concern on the extinct wild plant species． 五、单词拼写(满分 l0 分) 请根据首写字母或者汉语提示填写单词。答案须做在答题卡上，每空限填一个词。 81．You are __________ to develop lung cancer if you don’t give up smoking．(可 能的) 82．I'm quite healthy, so I r__________ get colds . 83．The medical __________ is too much for the poor family to afford．(治疗) 84．Jim had his foot i__________ while playing basketball and he asked for a leave . 85 ． It’s hard to __________ your life and work ， for both require your much attention．(平衡) 86．Tears are the most valuable I __________ .
