  • 试题:

    Just as they were getting ready to leave the street corner, they noticed a man walking toward them. He was obviously a wealthy man ---- they could tell that from the finely tailored business suit he was wearing and the gold watch chain that decorated his left pocket.

    The first beggar whispered to the second with excitement, \"He's coming our way!\"

    The two tried not to look directly at the man as he stepped closer to them, but they couldn't help glaring at him with expectation as he reached into his pocket and took something out.

    \"Thunk\" was the only sound they heard as what looked like a piece of hard candy, wrapped doubly in tissue paper, hit each of their waiting hats. The rich man turned and continued on his way, not making a backward glance.

    \"How disgusting (令人作呕的)!\" said the first beggar, as soon as the rich man was out of sound range. “He could have easily left us a few coins or a spare bill, but he tricks us with a piece of rock candy.\"

    He looked at the wrapped offering with disgust. \"Who does he think we are ---- children? There's no way we can even eat this ---- we have no teeth.\"

    The beggar picked up the object with the very tips of his fingers and threw it into the gutter(臭水沟). He watched as it floated a few yards in the stream of smelly water and disappeared at the end of the street. Then, he gathered up his things and walked away.

    The second beggar looked down at the candy in his hat, then at his departing friend. His first impulse (冲动) was to throw the donation in the trashcan under the street light. But his second thought made him change his mind.

    \"I haven't had anything like this for ages,\" he thought. \"I can't chew (咀嚼) it, but I can suck on it for a while, and the sugary juices will stay in my mouth for a long time. How nice of that man to offer me something so sweet.\"

    He eagerly opened the paper outside, then paused as his hands touched the white tissue paper inside. \"Maybe I should save it for another time,\" he thought. \"It won't spoil, and I could eat it later when I'm really hungry.\"

    The beggar hesitated for a moment, then declared aloud, \"Who cares? He wanted me to have it anyway. I might as well enjoy it now.\"

    With that, he unwrapped the white tissue paper, but to his surprise, there was no hard rock candy inside. Instead, into his fingers fell a shiny white pearl worth thousands of dollars.

    62. Why was “thunk” the only sound they heard when the rich man dropped the candy?

    A. Because there was no other sound at that time.

    B. Because all their attention was focused on the offering.

    C. Because the sound was too loud at that time.

    D. Because they liked listening to the sound.

    63. What can be inferred from the underlined sentence “The beggar picked up the object with the very tips of his fingers and threw it into the gutter(臭水沟)”?

    A. The candy was really too small and hard to pick up.

    B. The beggar was unsatisfied with the offering.

    C. The beggar thought the candy was so dirty.

    D. The candy was spoilt and couldn’t be eaten.

    64. What can we learn from the story?

    A. Rich people who give offering to the poor deserve more respect.

    B. Those who are lazy may miss more opportunities.

    C. Things which have no attractive appearance may be more valuable.

    D. Those who appreciate what they own are more likely to be rewarded.

    65. What is the best title for the passage?

    A. A wealthy man    B. Two beggars    C. An expectation     D. An offering

  • 试题:

    How come it seems like every kid today is a winner of something, when we know every kid can’t be a star? These days. Kids are first divided by age, then by achievement, and often by the type of performance.

    American culture in general has increasingly accepted prizes and awards. The winner-take-all prize tradition that characterizes American culture started in the early 20th century along with the development of organized American sporting culture. In the second half of the 20th century, the attention on competition, and rankings(等级) in general, grew rapidly. The 1970s had the most prize creations, including the addition of even more prizes to fields such as film and literature. Music competitions, including the introduction of the American Music Awards, saw similar growth in this time period. Since then, prizes have become increasingly fashionable, along with children’s competitive activities.

    While awards may help people set goals and practice their activity, awards may also be a business practice. Trophies(奖杯) help make sure that customers return year after year. Keeping kids, parents, teachers and coaches happy with lots of recognition keeps the money flowing to the organizers of the competitions.

    Trophies may keep kids coming back, and their parents paying, but research finds that giving kids trophies for doing an activity means lower levels of encouragement. High levels of encouragement are exactly what we want to foster (培养) among kids to help them get long-term success and take pride in a well-earned achievement. So parents need to be careful when trying to get titles for their young kids, and make sure the honor created is for their kids and not for praise from anyone else in their children’s lives.

    58. What does the writer mean by saying” we know every kids can’t be a star” in Paragraph 1?

    A. We should encourage kids more

    B. We encourage kids in a wrong way

    C. We don’t allow kids to be stars.

    D. We shouldn’t expect too much of kids.

    59. Paragraph 2 is mainly about _____________

    A.what prize culture in America means

    B.when prize culture in America started

    C.how prize culture in America developed

    D.why prize culture is so important in America.

    60. What does the writer think of the trophies?

    A.Businessmen benefit a lot from it.

    B.Parents pay too much for it.

    C.They help kids get long-term success.

    D.They mean nothing at all to kids.

    61. In the passage, parents are advised to ___________.

    A.choose competitions for kids wisely.    

    B.stop kids taking part in any competition.

    C.invite kids to join in more outdoor activities

    D.let kids face violent competition by themselves.

    What’s your opinion about gun control in the US?

    Figures tell a different story: Countries that allow their citizens to carry guns seem to have more killings than those that do not allow them. It’s easy to kill with a gun. The media is filled with violence. People, especially young people, watch television. Having a gun does not cause someone to kill. The problem is within that person’s mind. Controlling guns will not control killing. Changing the mindset will, however.

    --- Bobby Walker, U.S.

    Guns are deadly to all others who are near or know someone who has one. People don’t understand the danger it holds, and don’t realize what will happen just by cleaning it of if a younger child gets a hold of it. This weapon(武器) is dangerous and we don’t need teens, kids, anyone to have them. Society can get along without guns.

    ---Ann Miller, U.S

    I have a very large farm near Austin, Texas, USA. Because it is far from the city, I need to protect my property(财产) and cattle from thieves and wild dogs. The wildlife, such as coyotes and puma(郊狼和美洲狮), can feed on deer, mice, rabbits—they don’t bother me and I don’t bother them. I lost 45 animals to thieves that cut a fence. This will never happen again. You ask if I would shoot—of course—that’s why I carry a gun.

    --- Texas Rancher, U.S

    Some people think guns are very bad because they lead to violence. In my opinion, when people kill themselves or others, they do not have any feelings because they do not know anything about love, sympathy(同情), and promise. The only way those persons can get these feelings is when they keep close to family, friends and people who matter to them. Now, having a gun is not a problem: the problem is what the people feel when they use one.

    ---Connie Faille, Colombia

    54. Bobby Walker’s attitude towards the media might be ________

    A.satisfied     B. unconcerned    C. doubtful      D. negative

    55. The relationship between the Texas Rancher and coyotes can be described as _______

    A.peaceful    B. difficult    C. dangerous    D. changeable

    56. Which of the following may help the gun problem according to Connie Faille?

    A. Education about gun safety.         B. Stricter laws against violence.

    C. Nice feelings when using guns.      D. close relationships between people.

    57. Who is in support of controlling guns?

    A.Bobby Walker            B. Ann Miller  

    C. Texas Rancher              D. Connie Faille

    Ashlyn Blocker could break her arm and not know it. That’s because Ashlyn, 13, can’t feel pain. That might sound like a cool superpower. But without pain, everyday activities can be hazardous for Ashlyn. In fact, they could kill her.

    When Ashlyn was born, no one knew that she couldn’t feel pain. But soon there was hints(迹象)that something was wrong. When Ashlyn’s teeth grew in, she almost chewed off part on her tongue. Ashlyn’s parents took her to doctor for tests. The doctors discovered that Ashlyn couldn’t feel pain, a condition called congenital insensitivity to pain(CIPA). Fewer than 100 people in the United States have it. There is no cure.(治疗方法).

    “Sometimes it’s frustrating,” she admits.

    But Ashlyn doesn’t let anything stop her from doing things she wants to do. “I just have to be careful,” she says.

    For years, Ashlyn didn’t know anyone else who had CIPA. That made it harder to deal with her condition. “I felt alone,” she says.

    One night she dreamed that there was a camp for kids like her. In 2011, Ashly’s mom made the dream come true. She started Camp Painless But Hopeless.

    The camp is for children who have CIPA. Every November, they and their families spend four days together.

    The campers get to do daring activities like rock climbing—wearing safety equipment.

    Someday, Ashlyn wants to be a director at the camp so she can help others who can’t feel pain. In fact, Ashlyn is already helping others. Since 2004, she has let scientists study her to learn more about her condition. What they are finding out could one day help people who suffer from the same disease. That makes her feel great. “I believe there is a reason for everything, ” she says, “There is a reason for me.”

    51. The underlined word “hazardous” in Paragraph 1 can be replaced by “_______”.

    A.interesting       B. dangerous      C. difficult      D. strange

    52. What can we learn about Ashlyn’s illness?

    A. She was born that way.           B. It is a common disease

    C. It is sometimes helpful to her      D. She is getting better and better now.

    53. We can learn from the passage that Ashlyn ___________.

    A.is optimistic and holds on to hope for life

    B.helps run the camp

    C.does some research on CIPA

    D.wants to be a scientist some day
