I told them we’d have somebody shoot us 28 we did that.” The Mazes, who live in their own home at Escalon Village Roseville, enjoy their big, close-knit 29 , which also includes two sons in California and 11 grandchildren. But the idea of living with the kids in their older age leaves them 30 . “My first reaction was, ‘I don’t want you to tell me 31 to do,’” said Jackie Maze, who is also 75 and a retired teacher and counselor. Most older adults 32 to be a bit more euphemistic (委婉的) about it: Typically, they say that they don’t want to be a 33 to their kids, or that they don’t want to bother them. 34 , statistics show a plainer truth. In huge numbers, seniors 35 their freedom, and they want to live on their own 36 they can. In the Sacramento region, US census figures (人口普查数据) 37 that almost three-fourths of people 65 and older live in same-generation (as opposed to multigenerational) households. National figures are even 38 , with nearly 80 percent of older adults living in their own households – more than three times the 39 of the 1940s. A recent survey from the research firm Gallup & Robinson highlights 凸显， （ 突出） that sense of 40 . While 53 percent of people below age 65 said they would 41 an aging parent who needed their help, only a quarter of people older than 65 said they would 42 an invitation to live with their grown children. Those attitudes 43 the stubborn old cultural way, in which the grandparents, kids and grandkids grow older together 44 one roof — a tradition from the days when there was no choice but for the generations to live 45 , like it or not.

Even though the daylight hours are growing longer minute by minute, it’s easy to find an excuse not to go out unless you absolutely must, but then again I often have to push myself to accomplish things. People I speak to have been in all kinds of nasty moods. They say they’re “under the weather,” not feeling good about this time of year. As I stood outside with my two dogs yesterday, it was so cold that my nose and face felt frozen and my ears were stinging. Of course, that doesn’t matter to Ricky and Lucy. They have a routine they must go through to find just the fighting spot no matter how cold or hot it is. So I wait. But this time it was different. As cold as it was, I suddenly was excited thinking about how wonderful this extreme cold really was. Then the sun broke through the clouds and memories of summer’s extremely hot days flashed through my mind. I could remember standing in the heat of the
afternoon, with sweat pouring down my brow and the hot, burning sun against my face. I reminded myself then and there that in the cold of the winter I would wish I had this heat. I was grateful for the extremes. Without the extremes in my life, I would never appreciate the days when things were just right. Without the extremes, life would be boring. It’s being pushed to one of the extremes that makes us appreciate the middle more. Health challenges remind us that we need to pay more attention to how we live. Financial extremes remind us that when things go smoothly it’s also time to save for raining days. I’ve come to the conclusion that all too often I find a reason not to be happy with where I am at that moment. Whether it’s hot or cold, good health or bad, in the money or out of it, I always want it to be different. I’m tired of being “Under the Weather!” 46. What is the author’s attitude towards the extremes in life? A. Grateful. B. Critical. C. Negative. D. Unconcerned. 47. That day the writer waited in the terrible cold because ______. A. his dogs wanted to hunt B. he wanted to face the cold bravely C. his dogs had a routine D. he wanted to be different 48. The underlined word “nasty” (Paragraph 3) can be replaced by ______. A. unpleasant B. violent C. favorable D. unusual B I hated writing thank-you notes as a child, but I had no choice: My mother was adamant (坚决的) about honoring other people’s kindness and generosity. But now after a childhood spent crafting those notes, the music of gratitude flows naturally from me. I hire Brant to build an arbor (凉亭) around my front door. I drew it exactly as I wanted, and he realized my vision perfectly. Surprised at how the arbor’s beauty uplifted me every time I stepped into my house, I called Brant a few weeks after the arbor went up. He answered the phone defensively. “What can I do for you?” he asked, his voice cold and distant. “You can say, ‘You’re welcome,’ ” I responded. “I don’t understand,” Brant shot back. “I am calling to say ‘Thank you.’ ’’ Silence. “What do you mean?” he asked. “I love my arbor, and I wanted you to know how much I appreciate your work.” More silence. “I’ve been doing this work for 20 years, and no one has ever called to thank me
for it,” said Brant. “People only call me when they have problems.” He was doubtful. I also had a similar experience with L.J. He answered my questions, didn’t push, and gave me space to think and decide. I wrote to let him know that he completely exceeded (超出) my expectations of what a beat-them-down car sales experience would be like, and that I was happy with my car choice. L.J. called me a few days later. He said that this was the first thank-you note in the history of the dealership. Are we really living in an age when feedback (反馈) only closes with complaint? It seems to me that when we focus on problems, we only have dissatisfaction and complaint. But when we focus on celebrating goodness, we are likely to turn it into something positive. 49. What can we learn from the first paragraph? A. Music is one of the author’s favorite subjects. B. Expressing gratitude has become a habit for the author. C. The author’s mother is a very kind and generous woman. D. The author used to help his mother write thank-you notes. 50. When Brant heard the author’s voice on the phone, he was _____. A. unfriendly B. surprised C. thankful D. excited 51. L. J. probably worked as a _____. A. driver B. guide C. salesman D. repairman 52. By telling his own experiences, the author tries to show _____. A. how to express thanks to others B. how to deal with interpersonal relationships C. the kindness of people who serve him D. the importance of expressing thanks C Drinking Water: Bottled or From the Tap? In America, people will include a case or two of bottled water when buying the week's groceries. When they are going to a soccer game or activity, it's common for them to grab a cold bottle of water out of the fridge with them．In fact, Americans buy more bottled water than any other nation in the world, about 29 billion bottles a year． But all these plastic bottles use a lot of fossil fuels and pollute the environment．In order to make all the 29 billion bottles, producers use 17 million barrels of crude oil, which is enough to keep a million cars going for 12 months． So why don't people drink water straight from the tap? Some people have a strong belief that bottled water is better than water out of the tap, but that's not necessarily true．In the US, the local governments make sure water from the tap is safe．There is also growing concern that chemicals in the bottles themselves may go into the water． People love the convenience of bottled water．But maybe if they realized the problems it causes, they would try drinking from a glass at home or carrying water in a reusable steel container instead of plastic． Some argue that plastic bottle recycling can help． Recycled bottles can be turned
into items like carpeting or clothing．Unfortunately, only one in six bottles is recycled．The rest make it to landfills（垃圾填埋场）or end as trash in other places．Plastic bottles take hundreds of years for them to disintegrate． Water is important for you, so keep drinking it．But think about how often you use water bottles, and see if you can make a change． And yes, you can make a difference． Remember this: Recycling one plastic bottle can save enough energy to power a 60-watt light bulb for six hours． 53. How many cars can be kept going for a year by the crude oil used to make 29 billion bottles? A. 100． B. 1,000． C. 100,000． D. 1,000,000． 54. Why do Americans prefer bottled water? A. Bottled water is better than water from the tap． B. Bottled water is cheaper than water from the tap． C. Bottled water contains beneficial chemicals in it． D. Bottled water is more convenient than water from the tap． 55. What does the underlined word "disintegrate" in the fifth paragraph probably mean_____ . A. Be well recycled． B. Become less poisonous． C. Break into small pieces． D. Go down below a surface． 56. The author's intention of writing this passage is to recommend Americans_____. A. drink more water from the tap B. send plastic bottles to landfills C. use water bottles to power light bulls. D. buy bottles filled with water from the tap D Psychologists have discovered that even the most independent-minded of us will conform to social pressure when we are with a group of people. In one classic experiment, people were shown a vertical（垂直的）line and asked to find a line of identical length from a selection of three. You might think that this is an absurdly easy task, and when people perform it by themselves they do very well. However, psychologists have discovered that we are very easily swayed by the opinions of other people when we do this task in a group. In one study, a group of three people was set up, where two of the people were confederates（同伙）of the experimenter. When the confederates deliberately gave wrong answers, people were often swayed to give the wrong answer also. In fact, 75% of people gave at least one wrong answer, with some people conforming to peer pressure on every occasion. But why do people conform in this way? In an easy task like this, it seems that people do not want to step out of line with the prevailing opinion of the group. On more difficult tasks, people also conform because they lose confidence in their own ability to make decisions and prefer to trust the majority opinion instead. A typical example of this kind of conformity arises when we come across people in distress. Would you help a woman who has been attacked in the street? It turns
out that you are much more likely to go to her assistance if you are alone. When other people are also around, a diffusion of responsibility occurs. People are paralysed into inaction, because everyone assumes that someone else will go to the woman's assistance. 57. In Paragraph 1, the underlined word “conform” probably means “ ”. A. seek independence B. disobey orders C. follow what others do D. seek pleasure 58. What is the purpose of the experiment described in Paragraph 2? A. To explain why would people be influenced by the opinions of others. B. To prove that people are easily influenced by the opinions of others. C. To train the confederates of the experimenter as independent minded. D. To describe how people would be influenced by the opinions of others. 59. In the last paragraph, according to the author, why wouldn’t one help the woman? A. He thinks he has no responsibilities to give a hand. B. He thinks he has nothing to do with it. C. He is too shy to give his helping hand. D. He thinks someone else will offer assistance. 60. What method does the author mainly use to develop the text? A. Giving examples. B. Cause-effect analysis. C. Comparative analysis. D. Process analysts. E 第二节（共 5 小题；每小题 2 分，满分 10 分） 根据短文内容， 从下框的A—F选项中选出能概括每一段主题的最佳选项。 选 项中有一项为多余选项。 A. Look up things in the dictionary. B. Figure out things on your own. C. Exercise your mind in different ways. D. Study more effectively. E. Be more curious. F. Do some research. How to become more intelligent Are you embarrassed when you don’t know the answer to a teacher’s question? Everybody has those times when they just feel like they don’t know anything. Of course, you can’t know everything, but no matter how smart you are, you can start becoming more intelligent today. 61. How do some people get to know so much? Good memory skills are only part of the answer: you also have to be curious. If you’re satisfied going through life with little or no understanding of things you’re unfamiliar with, you won’t learn much. Make a conscious effort to be more curious by reminding yourself that developing your curiosity will broaden your horizons and help to make you more intelligent. 62.
Curiosity without initiative (主动性) is like having a car that’s out of gas—it won’t take you anywhere. Fortunately, when it comes to knowledge you’re never far from success. If you read a word that you don’t know, look it up in the dictionary. If you wonder how airplanes fly, read a book about it. If you want to know more about politics, pick up a newspaper. With the appearance of Internet, there’s less excuse for not finding something out that you want to know. 63. If you know how to use references, from an Internet search engine to an encyclopedia (百科全书), you’ll be able to find the information you want more quickly and effectively. Effective research skills will nourish your curiosity because you’ll become more confident in your ability to get knowledge. If your research skills leave something to be desired, take a class or workshop on how to research, ask a librarian or teacher or simply practice researching. 64. There’s a lot more to intelligence than “book smarts”. We can learn to perform everyday tasks at work, home and school better and more intelligently. If you don’t know how to do something, you’d better not ask somebody else to do it for you or show you how. In most cases, you’ll be able to figure it out on your own, either by trial-and-error or by researching. While it usually takes longer to figure something out than it does to ask about it, you’ll learn more about the overall process, and you’ll remember it better. Most importantly, you’ll exercise your problem-solving skills instead of your “do as you’re told” skills. 65. Most of us are good at the things we do well in naturally or the activities we do every day. Challenge yourself to learn a new skill or to think in a different way, however, and you’ll actually become more intelligent. Choose something you’d like to learn to do, or a subject you don’t do well in and focus on it. At first, you may be uncomfortable and feel even less intelligent than you did before, but if you study or practise hard, you’ll become more confident, and you’ll make new connections in your mind.

Dear editor, I am writing to you to talk about taking up occupations for college graduates. Nowadays many graduates are looking forward to obtaining employment in big cities, not willing to work in the countryside. As a matter of fact, there are not enough opportunities to satisfy most of the hunters in big cities while in the countryside talented people are badly needed and a lot of posts are waiting for us. Rural areas are a vast world, where you can put your abilities to good use and you’ll be able to make greater contributions to the building of new countryside. Therefore, I believe we can have as bright a future in the country as we have in the city. Yours, Li Hua
