Dietland, by Sarai Walker If you’re sick of the stick-thin and perfectly slim models of society today, Dietland is for you. The funny novel follows Pl um Kettle, an over-weight advice journalist who answers fan mail for a teen girls’ website. She’s convinced that her life won’t really start until she saves up enough money for her weight-loss operation — when she’ll finally look like the “perfect” woman. But after she gets pulled into a series of adventures with a group of women who live life on their own terms, she begins to reconsider her own opinions of what “beauty” really is. Orhan’s Inheritance, by Aline Ohanesian After Orhan’s Turkish grandfather dies, he learns that while he’s taken over his grandfather’s successful business, the house that’s been in his family for generations was not left to him. Instead, it went to an 87-year-old woman who lives in L.A. that no one in his family has ever heard of. To get to the bottom of this, Orhan travels to L.A. to meet with the woman. It’s then that he uncovers the secrets of his family. Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind, by Yuval Noah Harari If the story of evolution (进化) has always interested you, this book is for you. In it, Dr. Yuval Noah Harari explores how, if 100,000 years ago there were six different kinds of humans on Earth, only one lived through to today: homo sapiens. He takes both an historical and biological approach to his discussion of how humans have evolved over time. He talks about the society created by sapiens and cultural wonders. And perhaps what is most fascinating is the evolution of humans. 21. What does Plum Kettle want before she joins the women in the adventures? A. Natural beauty. B. A large sum of money. C. A healthy lifestyle. D. A slim shape. 22. What puzzled Orhan after his grandfather’s death?
A.Their house was given to a stranger. B.His grandfather’s business was such a success. C.He had to take care of the 87-year-old woman. D.The 87-year-old woman was one of his relatives. 23. What’s the most interesting in Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind ? A. The advanced society. B. The rise of humans. C. The development of biology. D. The cultural wonders. B Regarded as one of the English language’s most gifted poets, John Keats wrote poetry that concentrated on imagery, human nature, and philosophy. Although Keats didn’t receive much formal literary education, his own studies and passion brought him much success. Additionally, his own life situation influenced his poetry greatly. Growing up as a young boy in London in a lower middle-class family, the young John didn’t attend a private school, but went to a public one. His teachers and his family’s friends regarded him as an optimistic boy who favored playing and fighting much more than minding his studies. After his father’s death in the early 1800s, followed by his mother’s passing due to tuberculosis (肺结核), he began viewing life differently. He wanted to escape the world and did so by reading anything h e could get his hands on. At around the age of 16, the teenage John Keats began studying under a surgeon so that he too might become a doctor. However, his literary appetite had taken too much of his fancy, especially with his addiction to the poetry of Ehmund Spenser. He was able to have his first full poem published in the Examiner in 1816, entitled O Solitude! If I Must With Thee Dwell. Within two months in 1817, Keats had written an entire volume of poetry, but was sharply criticized by a magazine. However, the negative response didn’t stop his pursuit of rhythm (韵律). John Keats’ next work was Endymion, which was published in May 1818. The story involves a shepherd who falls in love with the moon goddess and leads him on an adventure of one boy’s hope to overcome the limitations of being human. Following Endymion, however, he tried something more narrative-based and wrote Isabella. During this time, John Keats began seeing his limitations in poetry due to his own limit in life experiences. He would have to have the “knowledge” associated with his poems. His next work was Hyperion that would attempt to combine all that he learned. However, a bout (发作) with tuberculosis while visiting Italy would keep him from his work and eventually take his life in 1821. 24. John Keats’ attitude towards life changed because of _________. A. his early education from school B. the deaths of his parents C. Edmund Spenser’s poetry D. the criticism of a magazine 25. What is the common thing between John Keats and his mother? A. They died of the same disease. B. They had a bad childhood C. They read many books. D. They showed strong interest in poetry 26. While pursuing his dream of becoming a poet at first, John Keats was _________. A. determined B. experienced C. knowledgeable D. impatient 27. What do we know from the passage? A. Keats received little education at school. B. Keats once had a chance of becoming a doctor. C. In 1816 Keats spent two months writing a poem. D. Endymion was about a real love story. C Once when I was facing a decision that involved high risk, I went to a friend. He looked at me for a moment, and then wrote a sentence containing the best advice I’ve ever had:
Be bold and brave―and mighty(强大的)forces will come to your aid. Those words made me see clearly that when I had fallen short in the past, it was seldom because I had tried and failed. It was usually because I had let fear of failure stop me from trying at all. On the other hand, whenever I had plunged into deep water, forced by courage or circumstance, I had always been able to swim until I got my feet on the ground again. Boldness means a decision to bite off more than you are sure you can eat. And there is nothing mysterious about the mighty forces. They are potential powers we possess: energy, skill, sound judgment, creative ideas―even physical strength greater than most of us realize. Admittedly, those mighty forces are spiritual ones. But they are more important than physical ones. A college classmate of mine, Tim, was an excellent football player, even though he weighed much less than the average player.“In one game I suddenly found myself confronting a huge player, who had nothing but me between him and our goal line,” said Tim.“I was so frightened that I closed my eyes and desperately threw myself at that guy like a bullet(子弹)―and stopped him cold.” Boldness―a willingness to extend yourself to the extreme―is not one that can be acquired overnight. But it can be taught to children and developed in adults. Confidence builds up. Surely, there will be setbacks(挫折)and disappointments in life; boldness in itself is no guarantee of success. But the person who tries to do something and fails is a lot better off than the person who tries to do nothing and succeeds. So,always try to live a little bit beyond your abilities―and you’ll find your abilities are greater than you ever dreamed. 28. Why was the author sometimes unable to reach his goal in the past? A.He faced huge risks. B.He lacked mighty forces. C.Fear prevented him from trying. D.Failure blocked his way to success. 29. What is the implied meaning of the underlined part? A.Swallow more than you can digest. B. Develop more mysterious powers. C.Act slightly above your abilities. D. Learn to make creative decisions. 30. What can be learned from Paragraph 5? A.Confidence grows more rapidly in adults. B.Boldness can be gained little by little. C.Repeated failure creates a better life. D. Trying without success is meaningless. 31.What is the author’s purpose in writing this passage? A.To encourage people to be courageous. B.To advise people to build up physical power. C.To tell people the ways to guarantee success. D.To recommend people to develop more abilities. D Everyone knows that death is natural, but do you have any idea of the process of dying? Modern scientists divide the process of dying into two phases---clinical or temporary death and biological death. Clinical death occurs when the vital organs, such as the heart or lungs, have ceased to function, but have not suffered permanent damage. The organism can still be revived(复活). Biological death occurs when changes in the organism lead to the “breaking up” of vital cells and tissues. Death is then unchangeable and final. Scientists have been seeking a way to prolong the period of clinical death so that the
organism can remain alive before biological death occurs. The best method developed so far involves cooling of the organism, combined with narcotic sleep. By slowing down the body’s metabolism(新陈代谢), cooling delays the processes leading to biological death. To illustrate how this works, scientists performed an experiment on a six-year-old female monkey called Keta. The scientist put Keta to sleep with a narcotic. Then they surrounded her body with ice-bags and began checking her body temperature. When it had dropped to 28 degrees the scientists began draining blood from an artery. The monkey’s blood pressure decreased and an hour later both the heart and breathing stopped: clinical death set in. For twenty minutes Keta remained in this state. Her temperature dropped to 22 degrees. At this point the scientists pumped blood into an artery in the direction of the heart and started artificial breathing. After two minutes Keta’s heart became active once more. After fifteen minutes, spontaneous(自发的)breathing began, and after four hours Keta opened her eyes and lifted her head. After six hours, when the scientists tried to give her a penicillin injection, Keta seize d the syringe and ran with it around the room. Her behavior differed little from that of a healthy animal. 32.For a person who suffers from the clinical death _________ A.he is still very much alive. B. he can not avoid final death. C. his most important organs are damaged. D. he still has the possibility of getting back to life. 33. Scientists try to make the time of clinical death longer in order to _________ A.cool the organism. B.delay the coming of biological death. C. slow down the body’s metabolism. D. bring vital cells and tissues back to active life. 34. How did the scientists put Keta into clinical death? A.By putting her to sleep, lowering her temperature and draining her blood. B.By surrounding her body with ice-bags and draining her blood. C.By lowing her blood pressure and stopping her heart from beating. D.By draining her blood, lowering her blood pressure and stopping her breathing. 35.All of the following indicate that the monkey has almost restored to her original physical state except the fact that _________ A.her heart beat again. B.she rejected a penicillin injection. C. she regained her normal breath. D.she acted as lively as a healthy monkey.
第二节（共 5 小题，每小题 2 分，满分 10 分） 根据短文内容，从短文后的七个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。 Empathy Last year ， researchers from the University of Michigan reported that empathy，the ability to understand other people，among college students had dropped sharply over the past 10 years. That could be because so many people have replaced face time with screen time，the researchers said. 36 Jennifer Freed， a co?director of a teen program， has another explanation.Turn on the TV， and you're showered with news and reality shows full of people fighting， competing， and generally treating one another with no respect. 37 There are good reasons not to follow those bad examples.Humans are
socially related by nature. Having relationships with other people is an important part of being human — and having empathy is decisive to those relationships. Researchers have also found that empathetic teenagers are more likely to have high self?respect. 38 Empathy is also an indication of a good leader.In fact，Freed says，many top companies report that empathy is one of the most important things they look for in new managers. 39 “Academics are important.But if you don't have emotional （情感的） intelligence， you won't be as successful in work or in your love life，” she says. What's the best way to up your EQ （情商）? For starters，let down your guard and really listen to others. 40 To really develop empathy，you'd better volunteer at a nursing home or a hospital，join a club or a team that has a diverse membership，have a “sharing circle” with your family，or spend time caring for pets at an animal shelter. A. Today，people spend more time alone and are less likely to join groups and clubs. B. “One doesn't develop empathy by having a lot of opinions and doing a lot of talking，” Freed says. C. Humans learn by example and most of the examples on it are anything but empathetic. D. Empathy is a matter of learning how to understand someone else — both what they think and how they feel. E. Good social skills, including empathy, are a kind of “emotional intelligence” that will help you succeed in many areas of life. F. Besides，empathy can be a cure for loneliness，sadness，anxiety，and fear. G. Everyone is different，and levels of empathy differ from person to person. 第三部分 英语知识运用（共两节，满分 45 分） 第一节 完形填空（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 和 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。 Four ?year?old Cris lived with his cruel father，who beat him when he would not earn money to 41 his alcohol and drugs.

Even the heavy rain in the morning could not
prevent us going. Set off very early, we went along an extreme narrow road, all in high spirits. On every side of the road was green fields and some farm houses. We could hear the sound of the rain and our footsteps mixing with our laughter. At noon we reached the top of the mountain. That surprised us most there was the beauty of scenes.

About this heated d iscussion, _______________________________ ___________________________________________________________________________________
参考答案 一、听力 1-5 BCBAC 6-10 ABABC 11-15 BCACA 16-20 CABBC 二、阅读理解 A 篇： 文章大意：本文主要为爱好书籍的人介绍了几本书。 21 根据文中 She’s convinced that her life won’t really start until she saves up enough money for her weight-loss operation — when she’ll finally look like the “perfect” woman. But after she gets pulled into a series of adventures with a group of women who live life on their own terms, she begins to reconsider her own opinions of what “beauty” really is.可知 Plum Kettle 之前她努力想减肥，故选 D。 22 根据文中 Instead, it went to an 87-year-old woman who lives in L.A. that no one in his family has ever heard of. To get to the bottom of this, Orhan travels to L.A. to meet with the woman.可知应选 A。 23 根据最后一句 And perhaps what is most fascinating is the evolution of humans.可知应选 B。 B 篇： 本文记叙了英国诗人 John Keats 的生平和作品。诗人儿时家庭贫困，曾经学医，但是对诗歌更有兴 趣。父母的相继去世，改变了诗人的人生态度，从此一改不爱读书的习惯，躲进书堆、逃避世界。 1816 年出版处女诗作。1817 年出版诗集，但是受到一家杂志的尖锐批评，然而没有放弃对诗歌的执 着。 在意识到自己生活经历限制了自己诗歌创作之后， 诗人原本在下一部作品中将诗歌与“知识“集 合起来，但是英年早逝，于 1821 年离世。 【小题 24】细节题。由第二段 After his father’s death in the early 1800s, followed by his mother’s passing due to tuberculosis (肺结核), he began viewing life differently. 可知 诗人在父母相继离世后开始改变对生活的看法。故 B 项正确。 【小题 25】细节题。由 followed by his mother’s passing due to tuberculosis (肺结核)和文 章最后一句 a bout (发作) with tuberculosis … eventually take his life in 1821 可知，诗 人与母亲死于相同疾病。故 A 项正确。 【小题 26】细节题。从第三段最后一句 However, the negative response didn’t stop his pursuit of rhythm 可知，尖锐的批评没有时诗人放弃对诗歌是执着。故 A 项正确。determined: 意志坚定 的。 【小题 27】细节题。由第三段第一句话 the teenage John Keats began studying under a surgeon 可知，诗人 16 岁时曾师从一位外科医生。surgeon: 外科医生。A 项与原文不符，犯了偷换概念的 错误。原文第一段说的是诗人没有受过文学方面的正规教育(Keats didn’t receive much formal literary education)而非“学校教育有限)。1817 年诗人用了不到两个月写出诗集，而非 1816 年， C 项错误。Endymion 是一首神话诗歌(love with the moon goddess)而非真实爱情故事，D 项错误。 故 B 项正确。 C 篇： [语篇解读] 本文为夹叙夹议文,题材为人生哲理。作者通过朋友的建议告诉读者,要勇敢地去尝试 自己没有把握的事情,即便是失败也比从未尝试过要好很多。 (28).根据第二段第二句 ItwasusuallybecauseIhadletfearoffailurestopmefromtryingatall.可知, 作者过去没有实现目标通常都是因为害怕失败而没有去尝试,故选 C 项。 (29).根据本段下文内容可知,我们都有比自己意识到的更大的潜在力量,甚至包括体力,由此可推断 出此处指“要做略微超出你的能力的事情”。C (30).根据第五段第一句话“Boldness...is not one that can be acquired over night.”可知, 勇敢无畏不能在一夜之间就被培养出来,B 项意为“勇敢无畏可以逐渐得到”,符合该段段意。 (31).根据文章最后一段可知,作者建议读者去尝试略微超出自己的能力的事情,这样就会发现自己 的能力比想象中的还大。由此可判 断出 A 项正确 D 篇：
为了延缓生理死亡的到来，科学家尽量延长临床死亡的时间。 32 细节理解题。根据文章第一段的句子 Clinical death occurs when the vital organs, such as the heart or lungs, have ceased to function, but have not suffered permanent damage. The organism can still be revived(复活).可知一个临床死亡的人还有可能活过来。故选 D。 33 细节理解题。根据文章第二段的句子 Scientists have been seeking a way to prolong the period of clinical death so that the organism can remain alive before biological death occurs. 可知科学家延长临床死亡的时间，为了延迟生理死亡的到来。故选 B。 34 细节理解题。根据文章第三段的句子 The scientist put K eta to sleep with a narcotic. Then they surrounded her body with ice-bags and began checking her body temperature. When it had dropped to 28 degrees the scientists began draining blood from an artery. The monkey’s blood pressure decreased and an hour later both the heart and breathing stopped: clinical death set in.可知科学家让 Keta 睡着，降低她的体温并放掉她的血。这样来让 Keta 临床死亡。故 选 A。 35 细节理解题。 根据文章第三段的句子 After two minutes Keta’s heart became active once more. After fifteen minutes, spontaneous(自发的)breathing began, and after four hours Keta opened her eyes and lifted her head. After six hours, when the scientists tried to give her a penicillin injection, Keta seized the syringe and ran with it around the room. Her behavior differed little from that of a healthy animal.可知 Keta 又恢复心跳，呼吸正常，像一个健康 的猴子一样，这些都表示她恢复原来身体状态了。但是她拒绝打针不属于。故选 B 三、七选五 36-40 ACFEB 四、完形填空 41-45 BCAAC 46-50 BADBC 51-55 CCAAC 56-60 ADAAB 五、.语法填空 1.going 2. and 3. action 4. was stuck 5. picking 6. thousands 7. covered 8 .possibly 9. more 10. to 六、短文改错 1. 第一句 go – went 2. 第三句 set – setting， 3. 第三句 extreme - extremely 4. 第四句 every ---either /each 5. 第四句 was - were 6. 第五句 mixing -mixed 7. 第七句 That---What 8. 第八句 having 后加 a 9. 第八句 with 去掉 10. 第十句 and---but 七、参考范文： I’m Li Hua, a senior three student. About this heated discussion, in my opinion, I will definitely help the elderly falling down on the street. Below are my reasons. To begin with, helping others in need is a traditional Chinese virtue. It is by helping the people in trouble that the society is becoming more and more harmonious. Worse still, if we passers-by can’t help the elderly in time, it may increase the risk of losing their lives. So I strongly advocate that people should give them a hand when facing the situation. Besides, more efforts should be made to guarantee the benefits of people who offer help. Only in this way are people willing to offer help without hesitation.
