Most of these people are old people and children. Old people often get hurt or die because they can’t see or hear very well. Children usually meet with accidents because of their carelessness. They forgot to look and listen before they cross the road. How can we lessen(减少) traffic accidents? All of us must obey the traffic rules. For the drivers, they shouldn’t drive too fast. If they drive too fast, it will be very difficult to stop the cars in a very short time. For the pedestrians(行
人), it’s very important to be careful when they are walking on the road. Therefore, when we walk across the road, we must try to walk along the pavements. We must stop and look both ways before crossing the road. Look left first, next look right, then look left again. Only when we are sure that the road is clear, we can cross it. The right way to cross the road is to walk quickly. It’s not safe to run. If people run across the road, they may fall down. Teens should try to help children, old people or blind people to cross the road, and never play in the street. 21. Which of the following is NOT the right way to cross the road? A. Stop and look both ways. B. Run quickly. C. Make sure that the road is clear D. Walk quickly. 22. Why do most old people often get hurt or die when they are crossing the road? A. Because they are not careful. B. Because they forget to look and listen. C. Because they can’t see or hear very well. D. Because they often run across the road. 23. The best title for this article may be . A. How to lessen traffic accidents? B. How to cross the road? C. Please obey the traffic rules. D. Meeting with traffic accidents. 24. As a student, you can to try to lessen traffic accidents. A. let drivers drive slowly B. play in the street carefully C. run across the road quickly D. help children to cross the road[Z-XK] B It was one of the hottest days of the dry season. We had not seen rain in almost a month. The crops were dying. Cows had stopped giving milk. The streams were long gone back into the earth. If we didn't see some rain soon we would lose everything. I was in the kitchen making lunch for my husband and his brothers when I saw my six-year old son, Billy, walking toward the woods. He was obviously walking with a great effort... trying to be as still as possible. Minutes after he disappeared into the woods, he came running out again, toward the house. Moments later, however, he was once again walking in that slow purposeful long step toward the woods. This activity went on for over an hour: walking very carefully to the woods, then running back to the house. Finally, my curiosity got the best of me. I quietly walked out of the house and followed him on his journey. He was cupping both hands in front of him as he walked; being very careful not to spill(洒出) the water he held in them. Branches and thorns slapped his little face but he did not try to avoid them. He had a much greater purpose. As I looked at him secretly, I saw the most amazing site. Several large deer appeared threatening in front of him. But Billy walked right up to them. I almost screamed for him to get away. And I saw a baby deer lying on the ground, obviously suffering from heavy loss of water and heat exhaustion, lift its head [Z-xk.Com]with great effort to lap up the water cupped in my beautiful boy's hand. I stood on the edge of the woods watching the most beautiful heart I have ever known working so hard to save a life. As the tears that rolled down my face began to hit the ground, they were suddenly joined by other drops... and more drops... and more. I looked up at the sky. It was as if God, Himself, was crying with pride. 25. Why did the author follow her son?
A. Because there might be danger. B. Because her son was doing a good deed. C. Because she was curious. D. Because she intended to help. 26. Which of the following statements is Not True according to the passage? A. Rain was in great need. B. Billy carried water with his small hands. C. Billy walked into the woods and then returned over and over again. D. There were few trees in the woods. 27. Which is the correct order of the development of the story? ① The author was moved to tears. ② Billy fed the water to the baby deer. ③ Billy walked towards the large deer. ④ It began to rain. ⑤ The author followed Billy into the woods. A. ⑤③②①④ B. ③②⑤①④ C. ④①③②⑤ D. ⑤②①③④ 28. Which of the following is the best title for the passage? A. Importance of water B. The water of life C. How to save animals D. Animals in danger C Early one morning, more than a hundred years ago, an American inventor called Elias Howe finally fell asleep. He had been working all night on the design of a sewing machine but he had run into a very difficult problem: It seemed impossible to get the thread to run around the needle without any problems. Though he was tired, Howe slept badly. He turned and turned. Then he had a dream. He dreamt that he had been caught by terrible savages whose king wanted to kill him and eat him unless he could build a perfect sewing machine. When he tried to do so, Howe ran into the same problem as before. The thread kept getting caught around the needle. The king flew into the cage and ordered his soldiers to kill Howe. They came up towards him with their spears raised. But suddenly the inventor noticed something. There was a hole in the tip of each spear. The inventor awoke from the dream, realizing that he had just found the answer to the problem. Instead of trying to get the thread to run around the needle, he should make it run through a small hole in the center of the needle. This was the simple idea that finally made Howe design and build the first really practised sewing machine. Elias Howe was not the only one in finding the answer to his problem in this way. Thomas Edison, the inventor of the electric light, said his best ideas came into him in dreams. So did the great physicist Albert Einstein. Charlotte Bronte also drew in her dreams in writing Jane Eyre. To know the value of dreams, you have to understand what happens when you are [Z-XK]asleep. Even then, a part of your mind is still working. This unconscious(无 意识的), but still active part understands your experiences and goes to work on the problems you have had during the day. It stores all sorts of information that you may have forgotten or never have really noticed. It is only when you fall asleep that this part of the brain can send messages to the part you use when you are awake. However, the unconscious part acts in a special way. It uses strange images which the conscious part may not understand at first. This is why dreams are sometimes called “secret messages to ourselves”. 29. The problem Howe was trying to solve was________.
A. what kind of thread to use B. how to design a needle which would not break C. where to put the needle D. how to stop the thread from getting caught around the needle 30.Thomas Edison is spoken of because________. A. he also tried to invent a sewing machine B. he got some of his ideas from dreams C. he was one of Howe’s best friends D. he also had difficulty in falling asleep 31.Dreams are sometimes called “secret messages to ourselves” because ________. A. strange images are used to communicate ideas B. images which have no meaning are used C. we can never understand the real meaning D. only specially trained people can understand them D For some people, music is no fun at all. About 4% of the population is what scientists call “amusic”. People who are amusic are born without the ability to enjoy musical notes. Amusic people often cannot tell the differences between two songs. As a result, songs sound like noise to an amusic. Many amuics compare the sound of music to pieces of metal hitting each other. Life can be hard for amusics. In fact, most people cannot understand what it feel like being amusic. Just going to a restaurant or a shopping center can be uncomfortable or even painful. That is why many amusics have to stay away from places where there is music. However, this can result in social loneliness. “I used to hate parties,” says Margaret, a seventy-year-old woman who only recently discovered that she was amusic. By studying people like Margaret, scientists are finally learning how to identify(辨别) this unusual condition. Scientists say that the brains of amusics are different for those of people who can enjoy music. The difference is complex(复杂的), and it is not connected with poor hearing. Amusics can understand other non-musical sounds well. They also have no problems understanding common speech. Scientists compare amusics to people who just can’t see certain colors. Many amusics are happy when their condition is finally diagnosed(诊断). For years, Margaret felt embarrassed about her music problem. Now she knows that she is not alone. That makes it easier for her to explain. “When people invite me to a concert, I just say ”No, thanks. I’m amusic.’” says Margret. “ I just wish I had learned to say that when I was seventeen and not seventy.” 32. Amusics are the people who _________. A. like music B. are born unable to enjoy music [Z-XK] C. don’t like music D. have poor listening 33. Life is hard for amusics mainly because _________. A. music seems noise for them. B. amusics hate parties, restaurants or shopping center. C. amusics try to stay at places full of music D. people don’t understand amusics 34. In the last paragraph, Margaret expressed her wish that ________. A. her problem with music had been diagnosed earlier B. she were seventeen years old rather than seventy
C. her problem could be easily explained D. she were able to meet other amusics 35. What is the main idea of the passage? A. Some people’s inability to enjoy music. B. Musical ability. C. Amusics’ strange behaviors. D. Identification and treatment of amusic. 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。 Cell Phones: Hang Up or Keep Talking Millions of people are using cell phones today. In many places, it is actually considered unusual not to use one. 36 They find that the phones are more than a means of communication – having mobile phone shows that they are cool and connected. The explosions around the world in mobile phone use make some health professionals worried. Some doctors are concerned that in the future many people may suffer health problems from the use of mobile phones. Mobile phone companies are worried about the negative publicity(负面报道)of such ideas. _____37____________ On the other hand, signs of change in the issues of the brain and head can be detected with modern scanning equipment. In one case, a traveling salesman had to retire at a young age because of serious memory loss. 38 This man used to talk on his mobile phone for about six hours a day, every day of his working week, for a couple of years. 39 The answer is radiation(辐射). High-tech machines can detect very small amounts of radiation from mobile phones. Mobile phone companies agree that there is some radiation, but they say the amount is too small to worry about. As the discussion about the safety continues, it appears that it’s best to use mobile phones less often. ______40 Use your mobile phone only when you really need it. In the future, mobile phones may have a warning label that says they are bad for your health. So for now, it’s wise not to use your mobile phone too often. A. They will possibly affect their benefits. B. In many countries, cell phones are very popular with young people. C. What do the doctors worry about? D. What is it that makes mobile phones potentially harmful? E. They say that there is no proof that mobile phones are bad for your health. F. He couldn’t remember even simple tasks. G. Use your regular phone if you want to talk for a long time. 第三部分 英语知识运用（共两节，满分 45 分） 第一节 完型填空（共 20 小题，每小题 1.5 分，满分 30 分） 阅读下面短文，从短文后各题所给的四个选项（A、B、C、D）中，选出可以填入空白处的 最佳选项，并在答题卡上将该项涂黑。 阅读下面短文，从短文后各题所给的四个选项（A、B、C 和 D）中，选出可以填人空 白处的最佳选项，并在答题卡上将该项涂黑。 One of the easiest things in the world is to become a fault-finder.

I know your parents want you be a student with artistic skills. Needlessly to say, a student with some artistic skills is more popular in school as well as in society. Having some artistic skills also help understand and master the general subject, such as math, English, and so on. Therefore, interest is much more important. If you show no interest in it, you are more likely to learn it well. And it won’t help you much. Some day in the future, you will regret making such a choice. In my opinion, you should follow my heart. You should do whichever you are doing well. If you learn your academic subjects well, you can still enter into a famous university. Art is not the only approach to succeed. 第二节 书面表达（满分 25 分） 假如你是李华。 你的好友 Mike 是美国一所汉语学院的一名中学生。 最近给你来信说他学 汉语有一定的困难，对自己失去了信心，产生了厌学情绪。请你给他回一封信开导他。 要点如下： 1. 没有必要过于伤心； 2. 要振作起来，尽量减少焦虑情绪； 3. 和老师交流有助于你改进；
