A Born/died: 1603—1659 Birth city/country: Lutjegast, the Netherlands Main achievement: Tasmania
Abel Tasman was born in a little village in the Netherlands in 1603. Nowadays there is a road in the village named after him and the house where he was believed to live is still a functional farm called “Tassemaheerd”. His first wife was called Claesgie Heyndrix, who he had a daughter with, Claesjen. In December, 1631 he married again, this time with Jannetje(Joanna) Tjaerts, a 21-year-old girl. In 1634, Abel Tasman joined the Dutch East India and he became first mate of the Weesp, one of the company’s ships. Later that year he became skipper(船长) on the mocha. With this ship he patrolled(巡逻) in the ocean. On one of his voyages, three men were killed and after returning to Batavia, Tasman got a new job. He had to transport cargo and booty in the northwest Pacific. A high death toll through diseases was normal and the Dutch ships weren’t seaworthy. On one voyage Tasman returned safely after he had lost two of his three ships in a storm. After this voyage Tasman was ordered to explore the southeast in order to find a new sea route to Chile in South America. This voyage to the “Great South Land” (as the Dutch called Australia) made him the famous discoverer of Tasmania. At that stage though, Tasman and his crew had no idea that they had made such a significant discovery. In 1644 Abel Tasman became skipper commander and later he became a member of the council of Justice in Batavia. By 1653 he retired and owned 288 acres of land near Batavia. He died in October, 1659. 36. From the first paragraph, we can see that__________. A. In a village in the Netherlands, people have built a farm in memory of Abel Tasman. B. His second wife was about seven years younger than he. C. Abel Tasman married again after his first wife died of a disease. D. Abel Tasman was born in a big city in the Netherlands. 37. What is the right order of the jobs in Abel Tasman’s life? a. He was married Jannetje Tjaerts, a 21-year-old girl. b. He became skipper on the Mocha. c. He became a member of the council of Justice in Batavia. d. He became first mate of the Weesp.
e. He became skipper commander. A. a,c,e,d,b B. b,c,a,e,d C. b, e,c,d,a D. a,d,b,e,c 38. What does the underlined word “booty” probably mean? A. 战利品 B. 奖金 C. 马靴 D. 奖励 39. Which of the following in TRUE according to the passage? A. In his time, the Dutch ships were very strong and could fight against the storm. B. Later in 1634, Abel Tasman joined the Dutch East India. C. The discovery of Tasmania was his main achievement in his life. D. Great South Land was also called “Australia” in English. 40. When did Abel Tasman enter the council of justice in Batavia? A. In 1631 B. After 1644 C. By 1653 D. Around 1659
I went on a tour of a nearby car factory today with my uncle, who works there. One thing I noticed was that most of the work is now done by robots. Welding (焊接), painting, testing, and many other jobs are performed by robots now. The whole dashboard (仪表板)of the car is now put into the car from above, through the windshield, by a robot. It would have taken two men to do this in the past, and it would have hurt their backs quite a bit. It got me thinking: is it a good thing that robots are replacing factory workers? On one hand, robots generally do a more accurate job than people. They aren’t likely to make many mistakes, and if something goes wrong with one car, an alarm goes off. They do exactly the same thing, every time, without fail. A human worker is never able to do exactly the same thing every time. On the other hand, robots also reduce costs for companies. Companies don’t have to pay robots wages or injury compensation (补偿) if they’re broken. If something in a robot does go wrong, it won’t have to take time off work for a year, or even forever, as could happen to a real person if he breaks his back or burn himself while welding. The obvious downside to all of this is that it increases the unemployment rate, which in turn increases taxes. We don’t want to be paying for other people to be off work because a company has replaced them with technology. 41. We can learn from the first paragraph that _______. A. all the workers are replaced by robots now B. robots do much of the work instead of workers now C. there were no workers with back strain D. the author’s uncle made robots in the factory 42. According to the passage robots _______. A. can do work as accurately as workers B. never break down C. can do exactly the same thing repeatedly D. ask for less money from companies 43. The underlined word "downside" in the last paragraph probably means "_____". A. weakness B. favor C. assistance D. strength 44. It can be inferred from the last paragraph that _______. A. companies refuse to pay for workers
B. robots have helped all of the workers C. robots can help solve the problem of unemployment D. workers have to pay more taxes for the unemployed workers 45. What can we learn from the passage? A. It is a good thing that robots can take the place of human workers. B. The author welcomes the idea that robots are replacing the human workers. C. Robots will burn themselves while welding. D. Companies prefer using robots to employing human workers.

IV. 阅读表达 If you are worried about things and are under a lot of stress at work or school, then you are probably not sleeping well. Worry can keep you awake, tossing and turning in bed until the early hours of the morning when you eventually fall asleep. When you wake up, you don’t feel refreshed, but tired and worn out and unable to face a new day. Dr. Henry Winkle wrote an article in a recent newspaper, which indicates that_____________. Dr. Winkle says, “The more we worry, the less we sleep, the more we are unable to deal with stress. If we can find a way to get a good night’s sleep,” he adds, “we can often find the energy to deal with what’s worrying us.” So, what is a good night’s sleep? Research shows that the amount of sleep which people need in order to keep healthy varies a lot. Seven hours in about the average amount, though strangely enough, sleeping longer often gives you a headache instead of making you feel more refreshed. Dr. Winkle believes that preparing for sleeping is important. People who work late should try to give themselves a short break and do something restful before going to bed. This could be watching TV or listening to music. Doing some exercise earlier in the day should help you to feel physically as well as mentally tired. A bedtime drink can also help, but coffee or tea should
be avoided as they contain caffeine and will keep you awake. “When you put the light out,” Dr. Winkle says, “concentrate on relaxing your muscles, working slowly up from your feet, and you’ll be asleep before you know it.” 56.

I’m writing to tell you about a common phenomenon. At present, many of us remain studying in the classroom during the ten-minute break between classes. I think it important to take a break between classes, especially during this period. Otherwise we will feel tired both physically and mentally. During the break, we can do something to get rid of tiredness. Relaxation in that period is really of great benefit to us. As far as I’m concerned, to study effectively, we should combine our study with amusement; meanwhile, taking some exercise such as walking and jogging is also a good way. As an old saying goes, “All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.” Only in this way can we study effectively. Yours sincerely, Li Hua
