standing for hours in the November heat and thought I must be hungry. I was doubtful as a young girl but he assured （使……放心） me I was safe，and he also offered to help me find a lift home afterwards. When we arrived at his house，he made us sandwiches. After lunch，he helped me find a lift home. Twenty five years later，in 2003，while I was driving to a nearby town one day， I saw an elderly man standing in the glaring heat ，trying to hitch a ride. I thought it was another chance to repay someone for the favour I'd been given decades earlier. I pulled over and picked him up. I made him comfortable on the back seat and offered him some water. After a few moments of small talk，the man said to me，“You haven't changed a bit，even your red hair is still the same.” I couldn't remember where I'd met him. He then told me he was the man who had given me lunch and helped me find a lift all those years ago. It was Gordon. 1. The author had to hitch a ride one day in 1978 because ______.

第一部分 阅读理解（共两节，满分 40 分） 第一节（共 15 个小题；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、D 中，选出最佳选项。
A In 1978，I was 18 and was working as a nurse in a small town about 270 km away from Sydney, Australia. I was looking forward to having five days off from duty. Unfortunately，the only one train a day back to my home in Sydney had already left. So I thought I'd hitch a ride （搭便车）． I waited by the side of the highway for three hours but no one stopped for me. Finally，a man walked over and introduced himself as Gordon. He said that although he couldn't give me a lift，I should come back to his house for lunch. He noticed me
D．she wanted to repay the favour she once got 4. What does the author want to tell the readers through the story? A．Giving sometimes produces nice results. B．Those who give rides will be repaid. C．Good manners bring about happiness. D．People should offer free rides to others. B It happened to me recently. I was telling someone how much I had enjoyed reading Barack Obama's Dreams From My Father and how it had changed my views of our President. A friend I was talking to agreed with me that it was， in his words， “a brilliantly（精彩地）written book”．However，he then went on to talk about Mr. Obama in a way which suggested he had no idea of his background at all. I sensed that I was talking to a book liar. And it seems that my friend is not the only one. Approximately two thirds of people have lied about reading a book which they haven't. In the World Book Day's “Report on Guilty Secrets”，Dreams From My Father is at number 9.The report lists ten books， and various authors， which people have lied about reading， and as I'm not one to lie too often（I'd hate to be caught out），I'll admit here and now that I haven't read the entire top ten. But I am pleased to say that，unlike 42 percent of people，I have read the book at number one，George Orwell's 1984.I think it's really brilliant. The World Book Day report also has some other interesting information in it. It says that many people lie about having read Jane Austen ，Charles Dickens，Fyodor Dostoevsky （I haven't read him， but haven't lied about it either） and Herman Melville. Asked why they lied，the most common reason was to “impress” someone they were speaking to. This could be tricky if the conversation became more in depth! But when asked which authors they actually enjoy ， people named J ． K. Rowling， John Grisham， Sophie Kinsella （ah， the big sellers， in other words） ． Forty--
two percent of people asked admitted they turned to the back of the book to read the end before finishing the story（I'll come clean：I do this and am astonished that 58 percent said they had never done so）． 5. How did the author find his friend a book liar? A．By judging his manner of speaking. B．By looking into his background. C．By mentioning a famous name. D．By discussing the book itself. 6. Which of the following is a “guilty secret” according to the World Book Day report? A．Charles Dickens is very low on the top-ten list. B．42% of people pretended to have read 1984. C．The author admitted having read 9 books. D．Dreams From My Father is hardly read. 7. By lying about reading，a person hopes to ______. A．control the conversation B．appear knowledgeable C．learn about the book D．make more friends 8. What is the author's attitude to 58% of readers? A．Favorable. B．Uncaring. C．Doubtful. D．Friendly. C Given that many people's moods（情绪）are regulated（调节） by the chemical action of chocolate，it was probably only a matter of time before somebody made the

chocolate shop similar to a drugstore of Chinese medicine. Looking like a setting from the film Charlie& the Chocolate Factory，Singapore's Chocolate Research Facility （CRF） has over 100 varieties of chocolates. Its founder is Chris Lee who grew up at his parents' corner store with one hand almost always in the jar of sweets. If the CRF seems to be a smart idea，that's because Lee is not merely an experienced salesperson but also head of a marketing department that has business relations with big names such as Levi's and Sony. That idea surely results in the imagination at work when it comes to making different flavored（味道）chocolates. The CRF's produce is “green”，made within the country and divided into 10 lines，with the Alcohol Series being the most popular. The Exotic Series—with Sichuan pepper，red bean（豆），cheese and other flavors—also does well and is fun to taste. And for chocolate snobs，who think that they have a better knowledge of chocolate than others，the Connoisseur Series uses cocoa beans from Togo ，Cuba， Venezuela，and Ghana，among others. 9. What is good about chocolate? A．It serves as a suitable gift. B．It works as an effective medicine. C．It helps improve the state of mind. D．It strengthens business relations. 10. Why is Chris Lee able to develop his idea of the CRF? A．He knows the importance of research. B．He learns from shops of similar types. C．He has the support of many big names. D．He has a lot of marketing experience. 11. Which line of the CRF produce sells best? A．The Connoisseur Series. B．The Exotic Series.
C．The Alcohol Series. D．The Sichuan Series. 12. The words “chocolate snobs” in Paragraph 3 probably refer to people who______. A．are particular about chocolate B．know little about cocoa beans C．look down upon others D．like to try new flavors D I got my first driver's license（执照） in 1953 by taking driver education in my first year at Central High School in Charlotte, North Carolina. Four years later when it was time to renew my license I was a married woman. Henry and I were living in Baltimore, Maryland. Two weeks before my 20th birthday, Henry drove me to the motor vehicle office on a hot July afternoon. When I got to the office and showed to the man behind the counter my North Carolina driver's license, ready to renew, the man told me that I was under age by Maryland law since I was not yet 21.“Mr.Henry Smith, your husband, will have to sign for you,” I argued, pointing to a very large belly（肚子） of mine, “I am married. I am having a baby. Why should I have to have someone sign for me to drive?”He answered coldly, “It's the law, madam.” Henry encouraged me to calm down, just go ahead and get the license and be done with it.“No,” I said. I refused to have him sign for me. So I left without a I called the North Carolina Motor Vehicle Office and renewed my NC license by mail—using my name Susan Brown. And thus it was for the next twelve years. Since Henry was in the army I could drive under my home state license. By the time Henry left the army we were once again living in Maryland, and I had to take the Maryland
