第二部分 阅读理解 (共两节，满分 40 分) 第一节 (共 15 小题；每小题 2 分，满分 30 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，并在答题卡上将该 项涂黑。 A I have a friend named Monty Roberts who owns a horse ranch in San Ysidro. He has let me use his house to put on fund-raising events to raise money for youth at risk programs． The last time I was there he introduced me by saying, "I want to tell you why I let Jack use my house.” It all goes back to a story about a young man who was the son of a horse trainer who would go from stable to stable, race track to race track, farm to farm and ranch to ranch, training horses. As a result, the boy's high school career was continually interrupted. When he was a senior, he was asked to write a paper about what he wanted to be and do when he grew up.” That night he wrote a seven-page paper describing his goal of someday owning a horse ranch．He wrote about his dream in great detail and he even drew a diagram of a 200-acre ranch, showing the location of all the buildings, the stables and the track. Then he drew a detailed floor plan for a 4,000-square-foot house that would sit on a 200-acre dream ranch．” He put a great deal of his heart into the project and the next day he handed it in to his teacher. Two days later he received his paper back. On the front page was a large red F with a note that read, "See me after class.” 21．Why can the writer use Roberts's house to raise money for youth at risk programs? A. Because they are good friends. B. Because the youth has the same dream as Monty Roberts. C .Because Monty Roberts has a poor childhood. D. Because Monty Roberts like to help youth． 22. What do you think of Monty Koberts' goal of a horse ranch at that time? A. romantic C. dream B. real D. false
23. What would happen after the teacher gave a note "See me after class.”? A. Monty Roberts got very angry at this. B. The teacher would criticize him. C. The teacher wanted to tell him that his dream would come true． D. The teacher would encourage him. B As you grow older, you’ll be faced with some challenging decisions—like whether to cut class or try cigarettes. Making decisions on your own is hard enough, but when other people get involved and try to pressure you one way or another it can be even harder. People who are your age, like your classmates, are called peers. When they try to influence how you act, to get you to do something, it’s called peer pressure.
Peers can have a positive influence on each other. Maybe another student in your science class taught you an easy way to remember the planets in the solar system. Maybe you got others excited about your new favorite book, and now everyone’s reading it. These are examples of how peers positively influence each other. Sometimes peers influence each other in negative ways. For example, a few kids in school might try to get you to cut class with them; your soccer friend might try to convince you to be mean to another player and never pass him the ball. It is tough to be the only one who says “no” to peer pressure, but you can do it. Paying attention to your own feelings and beliefs about what is right and wrong can help you know the right thing to do. You’ve probably had a parent or teacher advising you to “choose your friends wisely.” Peer pressure is a big reason why they say this. If you choose friends who don’t cut class, smoke cigarettes, or lie to their parents, then you probably won’t do these things either, even if other kids do. If you continue to face peer pressure and you’re finding it difficult to handle, talk to someone you trust. Don’t feel guilty if you’ve made a mistake or two. 24. For whom is the passage most probably written? A. Parents. C. Students. B. Teachers. D. Doctors.
25. In the last three paragraphs, the author mainly_____. A. explains why friendship is so important B. shows how to make more good friends C. discusses how peers influence us D. gives advice on how to deal with peer pressure 26. Which of following may help handle peer pressure? A. Spending more time with classmates. C. Choosing friends with no bad habits. 27. What is the topic of the passage? A. Friendship. C. Self-confidence B. Making decisions D. Peer pressure C From the first use of the rocket to carry satellites into space to the setting up of space stations, human beings have been putting great effort into space research. And so far, we have achieved many successes. But there are still numerous tasks in front of us and we should not stop trying to progress. The international space station (ISS) is an important step we should take in space exploration. It is not only helpful but also essential. It provides a proper space environment for many experiments that we have wanted to do for a long time. It is also a base for the observations of the earth and the universe. It could also be an important base for later travel to the moon and Mars. In a word, if we want to explore space more, the first thing we should do is to set up a space station. As the space station costs a lot of money, it is hard for one country alone to establish one. The USA B. Taking up more relaxing hobbies. D. Helping others who are in trouble.
seems to be the only country that has the ability to build a space station alone，and it has tried to do so, but not very successful. So it aggregated many other countries to work on it together. Though it is still extremely expensive, it is much cheaper than doing it alone. It is really a job that needs everyone’s effort and will benefit everyone. Led by the U.S. and Russia, the ISS is a joint project between six space agencies involving 16 countries. Called the greatest achievement in human cooperation, the ISS has come to the end of a ten-year’s hard work in construction. China has applied for participation in (taking part in) the project many times. Unfortunately all the applications were rejected, which drove China onto the path of independent development. As the Long March Ⅱ-F/T1 carrier rocket blasted off (leave the ground) and successfully carried the Tiangong-1 into space on September 29, 2011, China takes a big step toward its Space Station Era. Some West media suggested that the successful launch of Tiangong-1 would disturb the balance of global space power, raising concerns (关注) about “China threat”. China’s space project is not designed for military (军事的) purpose but for developing space technology to explore space resources and make use of them for mankind’s well-being. 28. From Paragraph 2 we learn that ________. A. the necessity of building the international space station is not realized now B. many experiments have been done in the international space station C. the international space station is necessary for people to explore space more D. people have traveled to Mars from the international space station 29. Which of the following is NOT a reason for countries’ cooperation in building the international space station? A. That it is too far away from the earth. B. That it requires a lot of money. C. That it needs everyone’s effort. D. That it will benefit every participating country. 30.The underlined word “aggregated” in Paragraph 3 can be replaced by “________”． A. united C. allowed B. scolded D. forbade
31. China wants to build its space station in order to __________. A. show that China can build space station alone B. raise international concerns about “China threat” C. make use of space peacefully for mankind’s well-being D. break the balance of global space power D “In only six days I lost seven pounds of weight.” “Two full inches in the first three days!” These are the kinds of statements used in magazine, newspaper, radio and television ads, promising
good shapes and new looks to those who buy the medicine or the device. The promoters of products say they can shape the legs, slim the face, smooth wrinkles, or in some other way add to beauty or desirability. Often such products are nothing more than money-making things for their promoters. The results they produce are questionable, and some are dangerous to health. To understand how these products can be legally promoted to the public, it is necessary to understand something of the laws covering their regulation. If the product is a drug, FDA (Food Drug Administration) can require proof under the Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act that it is safe and effective before it is put on the market. But if the product is a device, FDA has no authority to require premarketing proof of safety or effectiveness. If a product already on the market is a danger to health, FDA can request the producer or distributor to remove it from the market voluntarily, or it can take legal action, including seizure (查封) of the product. One notable case a few years ago involved an electrical device called the Relaxacisor, which had been sold for reducing the waistline. The Relaxacisor produced electrical shocks to the body through contact pads. FDA took legal action against the distributor to stop the sale of the device on the grounds that was dangerous to health and life. Obviously, most of the devices on the market have never been the subject of court proceedings (法律诉 讼), and new devices appear continually, Before buying, it is up to the consumer to judge the safety or effectiveness of such items. 32. It can be inferred that ads mentioned in the text are_____. A. objective C. unbelievable B. costly D. illegal
33. The Relaxacisor is mentioned as______. A. a product which was designed to produce electricity B. a successful advertisement of a beauty product C. an example of a quality beauty product D. a product whose distributor was involved in a legal case 34. The author intends to______. A. make consumers aware of the promoters’ false promise B. show the weakness of the law on product safety C. give advice on how to keep young and beautiful D. introduce the organization of FDA 35. Which of the following is true according to the text? A. The court is in charge of removing dangerous products. B. The promoters usually just care about profits. c. New products are more likely to be questionable. D. The production of a device must be approved by FDA. 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。

It has always my best wish to be a teacher. I still remember how I was taught to spell my first word. I never forget how I was encouraged to raise new hope when in despair. My road to maturity is dotted with guidance from teachers, without which it would have been impossible for me to smooth away the difficulties and discomforts. What the teachers do and say influences me so much that the dream of becoming a teacher has been deeply rooted in my mind.
As the saying goes, teachers are engineers of human soul. Being a teacher demands a lot, including rich knowledge, patience, kindness, devotion, etc. I’ve made up my mind to major in education after graduation from high school. Therefore, I’m going to work hard, train my character and develop good qualities. I believe I’ll realize the dream through my constant efforts. That’s all. Thank you. 欢迎访问“高中试卷网”——http://sj.fjjy.org
