阅读下列短文，从每篇短文后所给各题的四个选项（A、B、C、D）中选出最佳选项，并在答题 卡上将该项涂黑。 A I met the old man at a cafe. "Did you hear the radio news yesterday?" he asked me. "No," I replied.“Anything exciting?” “Exciting? NO! Something very sad. A group of hungry dogs killed and
ate my best friend.” “Oh, dear!” I cried. “How did it happen?” “He was working on the hillside when the dogs attacked him. When he didn't return, I went to the hillside and found…” “His body?” I asked. The old fellow drank half of his coffee. “No. I told you they were hungry dogs, didn't I? The big bones were lying everywhere. But they found this.” He pushed open a match box he was holding in his hand. In it was a man's thumb, lying on some white bloody material. “This is my friend's right thumb. The dogs ate the rest of him”. The old man began to cry. He finished his coffee quickly and left the cafe. I drank mine and called the waiter. “I'll pay the gentleman's bill. His poor friend—how terrible!” “You've heard the news?” The waiter laughed. “Sure. There's a hole in the bottom of the match box. He put his own thumb through the hole. The blood is red ink, I believe. Is the story worth a cup of coffee, sir?” “But he held the box in his right hand.” “Yes, but listeners look into the box. They just can't take their sight off that terrible thing.” “And when he tells the story, he gets free cup of coffee!” I said, laughing. “Yes, sir, but only from strangers who come to this town, and, of course, he does us no harm!” （ ）51.

The waiter hadn't let out the truth of the old man's story earlier because _______ . A. the old man helped the cafe in some way B. he was nobody but the best friend of the old man C. the old man wouldn't pay for his coffee if he did D. the waiter hadn't seen through the old man's trick B If you move to a new school, you’ll have to worry whether or not you’ll make friends.
Try speaking to the people you’re sitting next to in class. As they’re close by, it makes sense to chat to them first. Have courage to speak to everyone in your class. You tend to stay with that class through your five years at secondary school, so it helps if you get on with them. If you don’t have many friends in your class, try and make new friends in your subject lessons. You can also chat to them at lunchtimes and after school. Join a lunchtime or after-school club. You’ll get to meet kids of all years that way. Ask your teacher to pair you with another pupil. Use your celebrity status（名人身份） ！Since you’re the new person, you’ll have acquired(获 得)celebrity status, which you can use for a couple of weeks. Talk to people, remember to smile, be open and friendly, listen to what others have to say and make them feel important. As you grow older, it’s natural to make new friends and sometimes that means you grow apart from your old friends. So try and make time for all your friends－why not introduce your different friends so you can all go to the cinema or bowling together? But what if a friendship group is leaving you out? If this is happening to you, try and ask someone you’re friendly with what is happening. If the whole group is leaving you out, try to find new people to hang around with. （ ）55. According to the text, moving to a new school is ________. A. interesting B. exciting C. worrying D. boring （ ）56. What is the purpose of this text? A. To introduce how to live in a new school. B. To show how to get used to new school life. C. To encourage people to get along well with friends. D. To explain how to make new friends in a new school. （ ）57. It is suggested that when moving to a new school, you should ________. A. grasp possible chances to communicate with others B. try to all your best to help your new classmates C. sit close a friendly classmate D. study hard to gain others' respect （ ）58. If a friendship group is leaving you out, you should ___________. A. turn to your teacher for help B. try to know the reason from one close friend C. Have a talk with them and find out the problem D. find new people to make friends with immediately C When I was about 12, I had an enemy, a girl who liked to point out my shortcomings(缺点). Wee k
by week her list grew: I was very thin, I wasn’t a good student, I talked too much, I was too proud, and so on. I tried to hear all this as long as I could. At last, I became very angry. I ran to my father with tears in my eyes. He listened to me quietly, then he asked. “Are the things she says true or not? Janet, didn’t you ever wonder what you’re really like ? Well, you now have that girl’s opinion. Go and make a list of everything she said and mark the points that are true. Pay no attention to the other things she said.” I did as he told me. To my great surprise, I discovered that about half the things were true. Some of them I couldn’t change (like being very thin), but a good number I could—and suddenly I wanted to change. For the first time I go to fairly clear picture of myself. I brought the list back to Daddy. He refused to take it.“That’s just for you,” he said.“You know better than anyone else the truth about yourself. But you have to learn to listen, not just close your ears in anger and feeling hurt. When something said about you is true, you’ll find it will be of help to you. Our world is full of people who think they know your duty. Don’t shut your ears. Listen to them all, but hear the truth and do what you know is the right thing to do.” Daddy’s advice has returned to me at many important moments. In my life, I’ve never had a better piece of advice. （ ）59. What did the father do after he had heard his daughter’s complaint(抱怨)? A. He told her not to pay any attention to what her“enemy” had said. B. He criticized (批评) her and told her to overcome her shortcomings. C. He told her to write down all that her“enemy” had said about her and pay attention only to the things that were true. D. He refused to take the list and have a look at it. （ ）60. What does “Week by week her list grew” mean? A. Week by week she discovered more shortcomings of mine and pointed them out to me. B. She had made a list of my shortcomi ngs and she kept on adding new ones to it so that it was growing longer and longer. C. I was having more and more shortcomings as time went on. D. Week by week, my shortcomings grew more serious. （ ）61. Why did her father listen to her quietly? A. Because he believed that what her daughter’s “enemy” said was mostly true. B. Because he had been so angry with his daughter’s shortcomings that he wanted to show this by keeping silent for a while. C. Because he knew that his daughter would not listen to him at that moment. D. Because he wasn’t quite sure which girl was telling the truth. （ ）62. Which do you think would be the best title for this passage? A. Not an Enemy, but the Best Friend B. The Best Advice I’ve Ever Had
