Many adults see teens as energetic. Many of us see ourselves as proud. This

thinking 36 many adults and us, too, to have the idea that if we can't handle school

or 37 life well, we're just not trying.

But in my opinion that may not be 38 .

Earlier this school year, I was leaving my class on Friday, when suddenly it 39

like I had pulled a muscle in my back. I knew I was ill. After a few days I stopped eating. This meant I lost 40 ; the clothes that I

bought two weeks earlier began 41 loose. This time my parents got scared. 42 , I started sleeping less. My eyelids(眼皮)were constantly 43 .

I refused to 44 that I was ill. I kept my job working 25 hours a week in a shop;

I didn't 45 any classes. When I was hurting, I didn't mind and kept on going. 46

it kills you, it makes you stronger, right?

But now I find myself thinking. Is it 47 it ? I'm taking the classes and writing for the newspaper because it looks good 48 college applications(申请表). And I'm

working 25 hours a week so that, once I get into my dream school, I can 49 it.

Here I am, already sick from the 50 of work I'm doing in and out of school. So,

what good is a(an) 51 application if I'm badly ill? What is the 52 of doing this

work if I can't enjoy the results?

In fact, by writing my 53 I'm telling all the people who 54 much about the future and worry about it now. This is my warning:Don't climb the 55 dive if you

don't like the deep end.

Ⅲ.阅读理解(共 20 小题,每小题 2 分,满分 40 分)

阅读下面的文章,从题中所给的A、B、C、D四个选项中选出最佳答案。

A Long long ago, there was an old merchant who had three sons.“To which one shall I leave my fortune?”he wondered.“It must when you're lying on the white sands of the Mexican Riviera, the stresses(压力)of the world seem a million miles away.

Hey, stop! This is no vacation—you have to finish something! Here lies the problem for travel writer and food critic(评论家)Edie Jarolim. “I

always loved traveling and always liked to eat, but it never occurred to me that I could make money doing both of those things,” Jarolim said. Now you can read her travel

advice everywhere—in Arts and Antiques, in Brides, or in one of her three books.

Her job in travel writing began some eight years ago. After getting a PhD in

English in Canada, she took a test for Frommer's travel guides, passed it, and got the job.

After working at Frommer's, Jarolim worked for a while at Rough Guides in London, then Fodor's, where she fell so in love with a description of the Southwest of the U.S.

that she moved there.

Now as a travel writer, she spends one-third of her year on the road. The rest of the

time is spent completing her tasks and writing reviews of restaurants at home in Tucson,

Arigona.

As adventurous as the job sounds, the hard part is fact-checking all the information.

Sure, it's great to write about a tourist attraction, but you'd better get the

local(当地的)museum hours correct or you could really ruin someone's vacation.

56.Which country does Jarolim live in now?

A.Mexico. B.The U.S..

C.The U.K..

D.Canada.

57.What is most difficult for Jarolim?

A.Working in different places to collect information.

B.Checking all the facts to be written in the guides.

C.Finishing her work as soon as possible.

D.Passing a test to write travel guides.

58.What would be the best title for the text?

A.Adventures in Travel Writing

B.Working as a Food Critic

C.Travel Guides on the Market

D.Vacationing for a living

B The green turtle is listed as endangered by the International Union for the Conservation of Nature. Under the U.S. Endangered Species Act of 1973, the green turtle was listed as threatened except for the breeding populations in Florida and on the Pacific coast of Mexico, where it is listed as endangered. Green turtles continue to be caught for money by humans, and the destruction and loss of nesting and foraging(觅食)sites is a serious problem. Humans have already caused the decrease of large green turtle populations, including those that once nested in Bermuda and Cayman Islands. The situation of green turtle populations is difficult to

determine because of our lack of knowledge about their life cycles. The number of nests

in Florida appears to be increasing, but we don't know whether this is due to an increase in the number of nests or because we have started to monitor(监控)nesting beaches

more closely.

The green turtle is the largest hard-shelled sea turtle. Adults of this species

commonly reach 100 cm in length and 150 kg in mass. The average size of a female

nesting in Florida is 101.5 cm straight in length, with an average body mass of 136 kg.

Growth rates of green turtles have not been measured under natural conditions.

Green turtles grow slowly.

In the southern Bahamas, green turtles grow from 30 to 75 cm in 17 years, and

according to Bjorndal and Bolten, growth rates decrease with increasing length.

Growth rates measured in green turtles from Florida and Puerto Rico fall within the

range of growth rates measured in the southern Bahamas. Based on growth rate studies

of wild green turtles, the researchers Balazs, Frazer and Ehrhart estimate the age of

sexual maturity(成熟)can range anywhere from 20 to 50 years.

59.The main idea of the passage is to tell us________.

A.something about an endangered animal

B.how green turtles got

extinct C.how heavy a green turtle is

D.how long a green turtle

can live

60.Which of the following is NOT a reason why green turtles are endangered?

A.Humans catch them to get profit.

B.They lose their nests.

C.They have fewer places to find food.

D.People like to keep them as

pets. 61.According to the passage, the green turtle________.
A.can reach 100 cm in length in 17 years B.lives in the sea and grows very slowly C.lives only in Florida and on the Pacific coast of Mexico D.can grow from 30 to 75 cm in 17 years in southern Florida 62.Why is it hard for us to know the number of green turtles? A.Because it is difficult for us to be close to them. B.Because we have limited knowledge about them. C.Because we haven't measured their growth rates. D.Because they grow too slowly.

C

D European official have approved new rules on the production and marketing of food developed through genetic engineering. Reports say the approval could lead to the end of a European ban on new biotechnology products. The European Parliament(欧洲议会)approved the rules last month. Parliament member David Bowe of Britain proposed the new measures. He calls them the strongest biotechnology in the world. To become law, the fifteen European Union member countries still must approve the rules. That process may take eighteen months. The new rules include stronger supervision of genetically changed food, seeds and drug products. They also require governments to keep public records of where such crops are grown. Genetic engineering is the technology of changing the genes of living things. The changed gene directs the plant to do things it normally does not do. For example, the treated plants may produce more crops. Or they may resist harmful insects. This reduces the need for farmers to use chemicals to kill insects. The use of genetic engineering in agriculture has been debated around the world in recent years. The United States Food and Drug Administration, many American farmers and agriculture companies say such crops are safe. But many people in the United States and other countries disagree. Some countries have closed their markets to American farm products because of concerns about genetic engineering. There have been large protest against biotechnology crops across Europe. Officials in serval European Union countries question the safety of biotechnology products. The E-U has approved permits for fewer than twenty such products. In the past three years, European officials stopped approving permits because of concerns about public health and the environment. Companies producing such foods are waiting for approval of several products. Environmental activists have warned the E-U against ending the ban on new biotechnology products. One group, Friends of the Earth, says the measures approved by the European Parliament will not help the public, farmers or the environment. 67.What is the author's attitude toward genetically changed food? A.Optimistic. B.Objective. C.Dissatisfied. D.Curious. 68.What can we infer from the passage? A.The new rules have become law in Europe. B.The use of genetic engineering in agriculture saves the need to use chemicals to kill insects. C.It still has a long way to go for genetically changed food to be accepted by the Europeans. D.European countries care more about food safety than the USA. 69.The passage is mainly intended to________. A.inform the readers that new rules on genetically changed food have been

approved B.warn people that genetically changed food is far from safe C.present different opinions on genetically changed food D.give a brief introduction to genetic engineering
70.The example in Paragraph 4 is mentioned in order to____. A.list the advantages of genetically changed food B.make a comparison between common food and genetically changed food C.explain how genetic engineering is applied to crop production D.explain why genetically changed food is not safe
71.Which of the following is TRUE accroding to the passage? A.People in the United States disagree with the new approval. B.If the new rules become law, all the genetically changed products will be
permitted in Europe. C.Some countries have stopped importing farm products from America, as they
are concerned about genetic engineering. D.Contrary to the Europeans, many American people say genetically changed
products are safe.
E Fifteen years ago, I couldn't have imagined not subscribing(订阅)to the local newspaper. Waiting for the paper to come each day was an important part of life when I was growing up. Now I still read the Dallas Morning News every day, as I have since childhood, but I don't have to wait for it to be delivered all at once; I don't have to go out in a heavy rain to get it, and I don't have to throw away piles of used newspapers every week. Moreover, I even don't have the trouble stepping into the post office once a year to confirm my desired subscription. I now read my news on the Web, and I'm not limited to my local newspaper. I read several major city and specialty dailies. Ironically, the only rare occasions when I pick up a print copy of the Sunday Paper are when I'm in the market to buy something and want to look at the advertisements. A growing number of us get most of our news from the Internet. Many newspapers have adapted and put out online versions(版本),but some refuse to do so because they believe it will cause them to lose even more subscribers. They're probably right; why pay to wait around for the paper to be delivered when you can access that same paper any time, for free? However, I'm frequently bothered by the ads on the Dallas Paper's Website. But I assume(假定)it's the price I pay instead of a subscription although I'd be willing to pay a small fee for online access without ads. Of course, Internet users don't have to rely on just the official news outlets for information anymore, either. The popularity of blogs has made it possible for anyone to become a publisher and disseminate(传播)his or her version of the news, including stories that were refused to be picked up by the local commercial media. 72.Many years ago, the author used to do the following EXCEPT________. A.waiting for the newspaper to come B.handling piles of newspaper every week C.getting his subscribed newspaper in the rain D.confirming his subscription every month

73.According to the passage, the author presently________. A.refuses to buy any print copy of local newspaper B.turns to the Internet to subscribe to his newspaper C.shows interest in specialty dailies as well D.pays a little money for online access without ads
74.The author believes that online versions for newspapers will________. A.cause a decrease in subscriptions B.have fewer ads than print versions C.cost the readers a small fee D.cause them to lose more readers
75.What does the author imply by mentioning the popularity of blogs? A.Readers shouldn't turn to the official news outlets for information. B.Readers can read more news and stories from various sources.[ C.Readers can certainly find whatever they want in a certain blog. D.Readers will find that blogs are the best way to gain official news. Ⅳ.书面表达 第一节:阅读表达(共 5 小题;每小题 2 分,满分 10 分) 阅读下面短文并回答问题,然后将答案写到题后的横线上(请注意问题上推
下卸的字数要求)。
[1] People often use the expression “a ball of energy” to describe very active
children. But there’s an invention called the sOccket, which is a real ball of energy.
Julia Silverman and Jessica Matthews developed the sOccket at Harvard University. Julia Silverman explains, “The sOccket is a kind of generator(发电机) in the form
of a soccer ball.”
[2]To better understand what a sOccet is, you first need to understand how it works. Julia Silverman says,“When you play with the ball, all the energy will be
transferred to the ball---even any normal soccer ball. The sOccket collects and stores
this energy in a battery with every kick, hit or throw of the ball.” For every fifteen
minutes of game play, the sOccket can provide enough electricity to power an LED
lamp for up to three hours. The ball can store up to twenty four hours’ worth of
power for the light.
[3]The International Energy Association reported that nearly one and a half
billion people don’t have access to electricity. There’s an energy crisis in the world.
One out of every five people in the world doesn’t have any electricity. Most of them
live in subSaharan Africa, India and other countries in Asia. Besides, there are a lot of health issues because of using harmful choices like kerosene lamps (煤油灯), which
produce a lot of smoke.”
[4]Jessica Matthews says, “The sOccket is one small solution to a big problem.
We know that just a little bit of light will .We also know that soccer is the most
popular and loved sport in the whole world.”

[5]Jessica Matthews and Julia Silverman hope their sOccket ball will shine more light on the problem of power shortages. It offers people a chance to put their energy into the sOccket and get some energy in return while playing the world’s most popular sport. 76.What is the passage mainly about? (no more than 9 words).

77.How does the sOccket work according to Paragraph2?(no more than 13 words)

78.What does the underlined word “them” in Paragraph3 refer to?(no more than 9 words)

79.Fill in the blank in Paragraph 4 with proper words. (no more than 5 words)

80.Complete the following statement with proper words according to Paragraph 5.(no

more than 5 words)

The sOccket offers people who don’t have access to electricity a chance to

the soccer ball and get some energy in return.
