But none of these jobs was as dreadful as my job in an apple plant. The work was hard; the pay was poor; and, most of all, the working conditions were terrible. First of all, the job made huge demands on my strength. For ten hours a night, I took boxes that rolled down a metal track and piled them onto a truck. Each box contained twelve heavy bottles of apple juice. I once figured out that I was lifting an average of twelve tons of apple juice every night. I would not have minded the difficulty of the work so much if the pay had not been so poor. I was paid the lowest wage of that time—two dollars an hour. Because of the low pay, I felt eager to get as much as possible. I usually worked twelve hours a night but did not take home much more than $100 a week. But even more than the low pay, what made me unhappy was the working conditions. During work I was limited to two ten—minute breaks and an unpaid half hour for lunch. Most of my time was spent outside loading trucks with those heavy boxes in near—zero—degree temperatures. The steel floors of the trucks were like ice, which made my feet feel like stone. And after the production line shut down at night and most people left, I had to spend two hours alone cleaning the floor. I stayed on the job for five months, all the while hating the difficulty of the work, the poor money, and the conditions under which I worked. By the time I left, I was determined never to go back there again. 41. Why did the writer have to take many jobs at that time? A. To pay for his schooling B. To save for his future C. To support his family D. To gain some experience 42. The following facts describe the terrible working conditions of the plant EXCEPT____. A. loading boxes in the freezing cold B. having limited time for breaks C. working and studying at the same time D. getting no pay for lunch time 43. What is the subject discussed in the text? A. The writer’s unhappy school life B. The writer’s eagerness to earn money C. The writer’s experience as a full—time worker D. The writer’s hard work in an apple plant 44. How is the text organized? A. Topic—Argument –Explanation. B. Opinion—Discussion—Description. C. Main idea—Comparison—Supporting examples. D. Introduction—Supporting examples—Conclusion. B One of our biggest fears nowadays in that our kids might some day get lost in a “sea of technology” rather than experiencing the natural world. Fear-producing TV and computer games are leading to a serious disconnect between kids and the great outdoors , which will change the wild places of the world, its creatures and human health for the worse , unless adults get working on child’s play. Each of us has a place in nature we go sometimes, even if it was torn down. We cannot be the last generation to have that place. At this rate, kids who miss the sense of wonder outdoors will not grow up to be protectors of natural landscapes . “If the decline inparks use continues across North America , who will defend parks against encroachment（蚕食）?” asks Richard Louv, author of Last Child in the Woods. Without having a nature experience, kids can turn out just fine, but they are missing out a huge enrichment of their lives. That applies to everything from their physical health and mental health , to stress levels ,creativity and cognitive（认知的）skills. Experts predict modern kids will have poorer health than their parents---and they say a lack of outside play is surely part of it, research suggests that kids do better academically in schools with a nature component and that play in nature fosters（培养）leadership by the smartest, not by the toughest. Even a tiny outdoor experience can create wonder in a child. The three-year-old turning over his first rock realizes he is not alone in the world. A clump of trees on the roadside can be the whole universe in his eyes. We really need to value that more. Kids are not to blame. They are over-protected and frightened. It is dangerous out there from time to time, but repetitive stress from computers is replacing breaking an arm as a childhood rite（仪式）of passage . Everyone from developers, to schools and outdoorsy citizens, should help regain for our kids some of the freedom and joy of exploring, taking friendship in fields and woods that cement（增强）love, respect and need for the landscape. As parents, we should devote some of our energies to taking our kids into nature. This could yet be our greatest cause. 45．The main idea of Paragraph 2 is that _____ . A. kids are missing the sense of wonder outdoors B. parks are in danger of being gradually encroached C. Richard Louv is the author of Last Child in the Woods. D. children are expected to develop into protectors of nature 46．According to the passage, children without experiencing nature will _____ . A. keep a high sense of wonder B. be over-protected by their parents C. be less healthy both physically and mentally D. change wild places and creatures for the better 47．According to the author, children’s breaking an arm is _____. A. the fault on the part of their parents B. the natural experience in their growing up C. the result of their own carelessness in play D. the effect of their repetitive stress from computers 48．In writing this passage, the author mainly intends to ____ . A. blame children for getting lost in computer games B. encourage children to protect parks from encroachment C. show his concern about children’s lack of experience in nature D. inspire children to keep the sense of wonder about things around C When a Swedish ship that sank in 1628 was recovered from the port of Stockholm, historians and scientists were overjoyed with the chance to examine the remains of the past. The ship construction showed how ships were built and operated during the 17th century. In this way, artifacts, objects made by human beings, provided a picture of daily life almost 400 years ago. Underwater archaeology--- the study of ships, aircraft and human settlements that have sunk under large bodies of water---is really a product of the last 50 years. The rapid growth of this new area of study has occurred because of the invention of diving equipment. Beside the Swedish ship wreck, underwater archaeologists have made more exciting discoveries such as the 5000-year-old boats in the Mediterranean Sea. Underwater archaeology can provide facts about the past. In ancient ports all over the world are ships sunken in the past 6000 years. There are also sunken settlemenst in seas and lakes telling of people’s way of life and their systems of trade in ancient times. Underwater archaeologists want to study these objects to add to the world’s knowledge of history, but they have to fight two enemies. One enemy is the treasure hunters who dive for ancient artifacts that they can sell to collectors. Once sold, these objects are lost to experts. The second enemy is dredging machines often used to repair ports. These machines destroy wrecks and artifacts or bury them deeper under sand and mud. By teaching the public about the importance of underwater “museum” of the past archaeologists are hoping to get support for laws to protect underwater treasures. 49. In the first paragraph a Swedish ship is mentioned _____ . A. to tell us how ships were built in the past B. to provide a picture of daily life almost 400 years ago. C. to attract the readers to the topic of underwater archaeology. D. to examine the remains of the past. 50. The purpose of underwater archaeology is _____ . A. to hunt for underwater treasures B. to discover sunken ships C. to protect ancient artifacts from being destroyed by dredging machines. D. to add to the world’s knowledge of the past 51. Which of the following is true according to the passage? A. Underwater archaeologists study ships, boats and settlements sunken under large bodies of water. B. Underwater archaeology has a history of as long as 6000 years. C. Treasure hunters help archaeologists find ancient artifacts. D. An underwater museum is built to educate the public about history. 52. Underwater archaeology can provide us pictures about people’s life as long as ___ years ago. A. 400 B. 50 C. 6000 D. 5000 D William Shakespeare was an English actor, playwright and poet, recognized in much of the world as the greatest of all dramatists. Shakespeare’s plays communicate a profound knowledge of the wellsprings of human behavior, revealed through portrayals（描写）of a wide variety of characters. Shakespeare is the only author to have had over 300 films based on his plays. In British schools Shakespeare is the only compulsory author and every British student is familiar with at least one of his plays. A complete, authoritative account of Shakespeare’s life does not exist, but it is commonly accepted that he was born in 1564, and it is known that he was baptized（给人施洗礼）in Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwickshire. The third of eight children, he was probably educated at the local grammar school, where the chief subject taught was Latin, both spoken and written. The classical writers who studied in the classroom influenced Shakespeare’s plays and poetry. Some of Shakespeare’s most famous tragedies were written in the early 1600s, including Hamlet and, after James First’s accession（即位）, Othello, King Lear and Macbeth. His late plays, often known as the Romances, date from 1608 to 1612 and include Cymbeline, The Winter’s Tale and The Tempest. Until the 18th century, Shakespeare was generally thought to have been no more than a rough and untutored genius. Some scholars argued that his plays had actually been written by someone more educated, perhaps statesman and philosopher Sir Francis Bacon or the Earl（伯爵）of Southampton, Shakespeare’s patron（资助人）. However, he was celebrated in his own timeby English writer Ben Johnson and others who saw in him a brilliance that would endure. Since the 19th century, Shakespeare’s achievements have been more consistently recognized, and throughout the Western world he has come to be regarded as the greatest dramatist ever. 53. What is the passage mainly about? A. William Shakespeare’s birth background and his great achievements and status in literature. B. William Shakespeare’s daily life and how he became a dramatist. C. What Shakespeare experienced before he was regarded as the greatest dramatist. D. William Shakespeare’s most remarkable plays and the way he was respected by people. 54. Why is William Shakespeare chosen as the only compulsory author in British schools? A. Because he was pretty famous. B. He has been regarded as the greatest dramatist ever. C. He was celebrated in his own time by English writer Ben Johnson. D. He is the only author to have had over 300 films based on his plays. 55. What kind of language was most likely used in William Shakespeare’s early works? A. Italian B. French C. German D. Latin 56. Which is TRUE according to the passage? A. William Shakespeare’s brilliance was recognized immediately he began writing. B. William Shakespeare’s famous tragedies were all written in the early 1600s. C. Many of William Shakespeare’s plays have been made into films. D. British students have to learn all William Shakespeare’s plays. E A study of art history might be a good way to learn more about a culture than is possible to learn in general history classes. Most typical history courses concentrate on politics, economics and war. But art history focuses on much more than this because art reflects not only the political values of a people, but also religious beliefs, emotions and psychology. In addition, information about the daily activities of our ancestors--- or of people very different from our own--- can be provided by art. In short, art express the essential qualities of a time and a place, and a study of it clearly offers us a deeper understanding than can be found in most history books. In history books, objective information about the political life of a country is presented; that is, facts about politics are given, but opinions are not expressed. Art, on the other hand, is subjective; it reflects emotions and opinions. The great Spanish painter Francisco Goya was perhaps the first truly “political” artist. In his well-known painting The Third of May,1808, he criticized the Spanish government for its misuse of power over people. Over a hundred years later, symbolic images were used in Pablo Picasso’s Guernica to express the horror of war. Meanwhile, on another continent the powerful paintings Diego Rivera, Jose Clemente Orozco and David Alfaro Siqueiros as well as the works of Alfredo Ramos Martinez-depicted these Mexican artists’ deep anger and sadness about social problems. In the same way, art can reflect a culture’s religious beliefs. For hundreds of years in Europe, religious art was almost the only type of art that existed. Churches and other religious buildings were filled with paintings that depicted people and stories from the Bible. Although most people couldn’t read, they could still understand biblical stories in the pictures on church walls. By contrast, one of the main characteristics of art in the Middle East was (and still is) its absence of human and animal images. This reflects the Islamic belief that statues are unholy. 57. More can be learned about a culture from a study of art history than general history because art history _____. A. shows us the religious beliefs and emotions of a people in addition to political values B. provides us with information about the daily activities of people in the past C. gives us an insight into the essential qualities of a time and a place D. all of the above 58. Art is subjective in that ____ . A. a personal and emotional view of history is presented through it B. it can easily rouse our anger or sadness about social problems C. it will find a ready echo in our hearts D. both B and C 59. The passage mainly discusses _____ A. the difference between general history and art history B. the making of art history C. what we can learn from art D. the influence of artists on art history 60. It may be concluded from this passage that ____ . A. Islamic artists have had to create architectural decoration with images of flowers or geometric forms B. history teachers are more objective than artists C. it is more difficult to study art history than general history D. people and stories from the Bible were painted on churches and other buildings in order to popularize the Bible 第二节 根据对话内容，从对话后的选项中选出能填入空白处的选择。选项中有两项为 多余选项（E=AD; F=BD G=CD） --- What a tiring evening! --- Oh, it’s good to sit down after all that standing. --- __61__ --- I don’t think I’ve ever felt so tired in my life. __62___ --- And the heat. ___63___ --- We shouldn’t have accepted the invitation in the first place. --- __64__.

We have both achieved success and suffered from failure. Different students have different attitudes to failure. Some fall in low spirits when they don’t do well in the exams. They often lose heart and no longer study as hard as before. But most students take an active attitude towards failure. They encourage themselves to be self-confident . They find out and analyze the causes so that they will no longer make similar mistakes . I agree with those with active attitudes. As we all know, failure is the mother of success. Even great men may have failed many times before they succeeded. So we must deal with our failure correctly.
