第二部分 阅读理解(共20小题;每小题2.5分,满分50分)

阅读下列短文,从每题所给的四个选项(A、B、C和D)中,选出最佳选项。

A

I was waiting for a phone call from my agent. He had left a message the night before, telling me that my show was to be cancelled. I called him several times, but each time his secretary told me that he was in a meeting and that he would call me later. So I waited and waited, but there was still no call. Three hours passing by, I became more and more impatient. I was certain that my agent didn’t care about my work, and he didn’t care about me. I was overcome with that thought. I started to shout at the phone, “Let me wait, will you? Who do you think you are?”

At that time I didn’t realize my wife was looking on. Without showing her surprise, she rushed in, seized the phone, tore off the wires, and shouted at the phone, “Yeah! Who do you think you are? Bad telephone! Bad telephone!” And she swept it into the wastebasket.

I stood watching her, speechless. What on earth...?

She stepped to the doorway and shouted at the rest of the house, “Now hear this! All objects in this room – if you do anything to upset my husband, out you go!”

Then she turned to me, kissed me and said calmly, “Honey, you just have to learn how to take control.” With that, she left the room.

After watching a crazy woman rushing in and out, shouting at everything in sight, I noticed that something in my mood (情绪) had changed. I was laughing. How could I have trouble with that phone? Her antics helped me realize I had been driven crazy by small things. Twenty minutes later my agent did call. I was able to listen to him and talk to him calmly.

Long ago in a small, faraway village, there was a place known as the House of 1000 Mirrors. A small, happy little dog learned of this place and decided to visit. When he arrived, he bounced happily up the stairs to the doorway of the house. He looked through the doorway with his ears lifted high and his tail wagging as fast as it could. To his great surprise, he found himself staring at 1000 other happy little dogs with their tails wagging just as fast as his. He smiled a great smile, and was answered with 1000 great smiles just as warm and friendly. As he left the house, he thought to himself, “This is a wonderful place. I will come back and visit it often.”

In this same village, another little dog, who was not quite as happy as the first one, decided to visit the house. He slowly climbed the stairs and hung his head low as he looked into the door. When he saw the 1000 unfriendly looking dogs staring back at him, he growled at them and was horrified to see 1000 little dogs growling back at him. As he left, he thought to himself, “That is a horrible place, and I will never go back there again.”

All the faces in the world are mirrors. What kind of reflections do you see in the faces of the people you meet?

40. Why was the first dog surprised when he entered the house?

A. Because he didn’t expect to see so many happy dogs.

We have met the enemy, and he is ours. We bought him at a pet shop. When monkey-pox, a disease usually found in the African rain forest, suddenly turns up in children in the American Midwest, it’s hard not to wonder if the disease that comes from foreign animals is homing in on human beings. “Most of the infections (感染) we think of as human infections started in other animals,” says Stephen Morse, director of the Center for Public Health Preparedness at Columbia University.

It’s not just that we’re going to where the animals are; we’re also bringing them closer to us. Popular foreign pets have brought a whole new disease to this country. A strange illness killed Isaksen’s pets, and she now thinks that keeping foreign pets is a bad idea. “I don’t think it’s fair to have them as pets when we have such a limited knowledge of them,” says Isaksen.

“Laws allowing these animals to be brought in from deep forest areas without stricter control need changing,” says Peter Schantz. Monkey-pox may be the wake-up call. Researchers believe infected animals may infect their owners. We know very little about these new diseases. A new bug (病毒) may be kind at first. But it may develop into something harmful (有害的). Monkey-pox doesn’t look a major infectious disease. But it is not impossible to pass the disease from person to person.

44. We learn from Paragraph 1 that the pet sold at the shop may ______.

A. come from Columbia B. prevent us from being infected

C. enjoy being with children D. suffer from monkey-pox

45. Why did Isaksen advise people not to have foreign pets?

A. They attack human beings.

B. We need to study native animals.

C. They can’t live out of the rain forest.

D. We do not know much about them yet.

46. What does the phrase “the wake-up call” in Paragraph 3 most probably mean?

A. A new diseaseB. A clear warning

C. A dangerous animal D. A morning call

47. The text suggests that in the future we ______.

A. may have to fight against more new disease

B. may easily get infected by diseases from dog

C. should not be allowed to have pet

D. should stop buying pets from Africa

D

“Colour” and “color”, “favourite” and “favorite”... Have you ever wondered why Americans spell those words without a “u”? Is it because they are lazy?

Of course not. In fact, the difference in spelling was created by Noah Webster (1758-1843). He is a teacher who reformed English to make American identity stronger. Linguists (语言学家) celebrated his 250th birthday on October 16.

After the Revolutionary War (1775-1783), Webster believed that Americans should have their own dictionary, rather than rely on British versions (版本).

He dropped the British “u” in some words. And he changed “centre” into “center” for children to learn English by spelling words more like they sounded.

Webster wasn’t shy about expressing his opinions. In defining (定义) preposterous (unreasonable), he wrote: “A Republican government in the hands of females is preposterous.”

Webster spent 28 years on the project before completing the 70,000-word dictionary in 1828 with his American-style spellings. He also added local words.

His dictionary was widely used in schools. Linguists believed it helped a new nation achieve unity and cultural independence at a time when most were focused on political freedom.

“He was the shaper of our language and the shaper of American identity,” said Joshua Kendall, who is working on a biography (传记) about Webster. “He at last bonded (联合) us through our language.”

48. According to the passage, when he worked on his dictionary,Noah Webster did all of the following EXCEPT ______.

A. dropping “u” in all the British word

B. changing “centre” into “center”

C. adding local word

D. voicing his idea

49. When did Noah Webster probably begin his project of the dictionary?

A. In 1758. B. In 1783.

C. In 1800. D. In 1828.

50. Why did Noah Webster create these differences in his dictionary?

A. Because he wanted to make English simple and easy.

B. Because he wanted American English to have its own characteristics.

C. Because he wanted to achieve political freedom.

D. Because he wanted to show that the USA is stronger than the UK.

51. Which of the following would probably be the best title for the passage?

A. Webster’s dictionary

B. American identity

C. The shaper of American English

D. Spelling differences between American and British English

E

Honesty comes in many forms. First there’s self-honesty. Is what people see the real article or do you appear through smoke and mirrors? I find that if I try to be something I’m not, I feel unsure of myself and take out a part from my PBA (personal bank account). I love how singer Judy Garland put it, “Always be a first-class version (版本) of yourself, instead of a second-class version of somebody else.”

Then there’s honesty in our actions. Are you honest at school, with your parents, and with your boss? If you’ve ever been dishonest, I think we all have, try being honest, and notice how whole it makes you feel. Remember, you can’t do wrong and feel right. This story by Jeff is a good example of that:

In my second year of study, there were three kids in my math class who didn’t do well.

I was really good at it. I would charge them three dollars for each test that I helped them pass. I’d write on a little piece of paper all the right answers, and hand them off.

At first I felt like I was making money, kind of a nice job. I wasn’t thinking about how it could hurt all of us. After a while I realized I shouldn’t do that anymore, because I wasn’t really helping them. They weren’t learning anything, and it would only get harder down the road. Cheating certainly wasn’t helping me.

It takes courage to be honest when people all around you are getting away with cheating on tests, lying to their parents, and stealing at work. But, remember, every act of honesty is a deposit (储蓄) into your PBA and will build strength.

52. The underlined part “appear through smoke and mirrors”in the first paragraph means “______”.

A. to be honestB. to be unreal

C. to become clear D. to come from an imagined world

53.Which of the following can best explain Judy Garland’s words?

A.Be your true self rather than follow others.

B.Don’t copy others or you can’t be the first class.

C.Make efforts to be the first instead of the second.

D.Don’t learn from others unless they’re excellent.

54. What does the author expect to show by Jeff’s story?

A.Honesty can be of great help.

B.A bad thing can be turned into a good one.

C.Helping others cheat can do good to nobody.

D.One should realize the wrong in his bad deeds.

55. In the last paragraph the author mainly wants to express ______.

A.one must be brave to be honest

B.it’s difficult to be honest when others are not

C.one should be honest when making a deposit

D.honesty in one’s actions can help him in the future
