Robert was allowed to sit up for an hour a day to remove the liquids from his lungs. His bed was next to the room’s only window. Hill had to spend all his time flat on his back. Every afternoon when Robert could sit up, he would pass the time by describing to his roommate all the things he could see outside the window. Hill would live for those one-hour periods where his world would be broadened by all the activity and color of the outside world. One afternoon Robert described a parade passing by. Although Hill could not hear the band, he could see it in his mind’s eye. Unexpectedly, a strange thought entered Hill’s head, “Why should he have all the pleasure of seeing everything while I never get to see anything? It doesn’t seem fair.” As the thought expanded, Hill felt ashamed at first. But as the days passed and he missed seeing more sights, his envy changed into hate. He should be by that window, and that thought now controlled his life. Late one night, as Hill lay staring at the ceiling. Robert began to cough. Robert was choking on the liquids in his lungs. Hill watched it as Robert struggled to call for help. Listening from across the room, Hill never moved. In less than five minutes, the coughing and choking stopped, along with the sound of breathing. The following morning the nurse arrived to bring water for their baths. When she found the lifeless body of Robert, she was sad and called the hospital attendant to take it away. As soon as it seemed appropriate, Hill asked if he could be moved next to the window. The nurse was happy to make the switch, and then she left him alone. Slowly,
painfully, Hill got himself up. Nervous, he slowly turned to look out of the window beside the bed but only saw a blank wall. 25. Robert described the outside world to .

All week they kept finding their new colleagues mixing them up, until on the Friday they finally met. They’ve been friends ever since, and now they’ve teamed up to change the way mobile phones are designed. Cyr and Inagawa’s company is called Dtoor, which stands for “Designing the opposite of rectangle”, and their first planned product is the Cyrcle, a round mobile phone. It’s been years since smart phones looked fun. The strange looks of the teardrop-shaped (水滴形) Nokia 7600 or stick-like Nokia 7280 are a distant memory in this age of shiny rectangles. But the potential of a different design isn’t just about novelty. With so many mainstream manufacturers using the same Android software in a crowded market, companies are desperate to differentiate their products. In fact Apple, Samsung and others are already
diversifying their mobile line-up with smart watches and virtual reality devices. So, maybe it’s time to re -design the smart phone itself with some more interesting designs than the boring old rectangle. That’s the goal of Dtoor. Founder Christina Cyr, who has worked on nuclear submarines, AIDS research in Los Angeles, and as a biochemist in Japan as well as working for NEC and Microsoft, went from complaining about her phone to attending maker spaces to begin work on a device that would do the things she wanted, and not do the things she didn’t want. 29. How long have Cyr and Inagawa been friends? A. About 10 years. C. About 30 years. B. About 20 years. D. About 40 years.
30. The underlined word “novelty” in the third paragraph refers to . A. something new and interesting C someone kind and famous 31. What’s the goal of Dtoor? A. To help people do anything they want, B. To play an important role in other fields. C. To become the biggest smart phone company in the world. D. To design smart phones with some more interesting designs. D Roller coasters are fast and exciting. But passing a painful kidney (肾) stone is not. The process is painful and can take a long time. But American researchers have found that a roller coaster ride just might help those suffering from a kidney stone. They say such rides help patients pass the stones with a 70 percent success rate. David Wartinger led the study. He found that where the person sits on the roller coaster can make a big difference. He said, “In the pilot study, sitting in the last car of the roller coaster showed about a 64 percent pass rate. Sitting in the first few cars only had a 16 percent success rate.” It also mattered where the stones were located in the kidney. The researchers found that stones located in the upper part of the kidney model were passed 100 percent. When it comes to passing kidney stones, not all roller coasters are equal. The researchers used 174 kidney stones of different shapes, sizes and weights to see if each model worked on the same ride and on two other roller coasters. They found that Big Thunder Mountain was the only one that worked. The other two roller coasters both failed the test. Wartinger said the other rides were too fast and too violent. The movement forced the stones against
B. something old and dull D. someone selfish and rude
the side of the kidney. He said that the ideal roller coaster is rough and quick with some twists and turns. Wartinger thinks roller coaster rides could also be used as a preventative measure. He said that a yearly ride on a roller coaster could even prevent stones from developing. “You need to notice the warnings before going on a roller coaster,” he said. “If you have a kidney stone, but are otherwise healthy and meet the requirements of the ride, patients should try it.” He adds that it’s definitely a lower cost alternative to other treatments. And riding a roller coaster is definitely more fun! 32. According to the text, passing kidney stones is . A. fast B. exciting C interesting D. painful
33. Which of the following benefits people with a kidney stone most? A. Sitting in the first car of a roller coaster. B. Sitting in the middle cars of a roller coaster. C. Sitting in big roller coasters with doctors’ care. D. Sitting in rough and fast roller coasters with twists and turns. 34. What’s Wartinger’s attitude to riding roller coasters for people having a kidney stone? A. Worried. B. Negative. C. Supportive. D. Skeptical.
35. What would be the best title for the text? A. Some treatments of kidney stones B. Advantages of riding roller coasters C. Roller coasters can help pass kidney stones D. Kidney stones can be cured by riding roller coasters 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。 Technology sometimes goes wrong.
