One day, when I was in high school, I saw a kid named Kyle from my class walking home from school with all his books, I thought to myself, “__36___ would anyone bring home all his books for the weekend?

Shopping is not as simple as you may think! There are all sorts of tricks at play each time we reach out for that particular brand of product on the shelf.
Coloring, for example, varies according to what the producers are trying to sell. Health foods are packaged in greens, yellows or browns because we think of these as healthy colors. Ice cream packers are often blue and expensive goods, like chocolates, are gold or silver.
When some kind of pain killer was brought out recently, researchers found that the colors turned the customers off because they made the product look weak and ineffective. Eventually, it came on the market in a dark blue and white package ----blue, because we think of it as safe, and white as calm.
The size of a product can attract a shopper. But quite often a bottle doesn’t contain as much as it appears to.
It is believed that the better –known companies spend, on average, 70 per cent of the total cost of the product itself on packaging!
The most successful producers know that it’s not enough to have a good product. The founder of Pears soap, who for 25 years has used pretty little girls to promote their goods, came to the conclusion: “Any fool can make soap, but it takes a genius(天才) to sell it.”
55. Which of the following may trick a shopper into buying a product according to the text?
A. The cost of its package B. The price of the product
C. The color of its package D. The brand name of the product
56. The underlined part “the color turned the customers off” (in para.3) means the colors__.
A. attracted the customers strongly B. had weak effects on the customers
C. tricked the customers into shopping D. caused the customers to lose interest
57. Which of the following is the key to the success in product sales?
A. The way to promote the goods. B. the discovery of a genius
C. The team to produce a good producer D. The brand name used by successful producers.
58. Which of the following could be the best title for the text?
A. Choice of good products B. Disadvantage of products
C. Effect of packaging on shopping D. Brand names and shopping tricks
One thing the tour books don’t tell you about London is that 2000 of its residents are foxes. They ran away from the city about two centuries ago after developers and pollution moved in. But now that the environment is clear, the foxes have come home.
“The number and variety of wild animals in urban areas is increasing,” says Comer Jones. A survey of the wildlife in New York’s Central Park last year counted 14 species of mammals. A similar survey conducted in the 1890s counted only five species.
Several changes have brought wild animals to the cities. Foremost is that air and water quality in many cities has improved as a result of the 1970s pollution-control efforts. Meanwhile, rural areas have been built up, leaving many animals on the edges of suburbs. In addition, urban wildlife refuges(避难处)have been created. The Greater London Council last year spent ￡ 750,000 to buy land and build 10 permanent wildlife refuges in the city. As a result, many birds are now living in the city. For peregrine falcons cities are actually safer than rural cliff dwellings(悬崖栖息地).By 1970 the birds had died out east of the Mississippi because of the DDT had made their eggs too thin to support life. That year, scientist Tom Cade of Cornell University began raising the birds for release in cities afforded plenty of food.
Cities can attract wild animals without turning them harmful. The trick is to create habitats where they can be self-sufficient but still be seen and appreciated. Such habitats can even be functional. In San Francisco, the local government is testing different kinds of rainwater control basins to see not only whish ones retain(保持)the cleanest water but which will attract the most birds.
59. The passage is mainly concerned with_____.
A．wildlife returning to large cities B．foxes returning to London

60．It can be inferred from the passage that
A. Londoners are putting more and more wild animals into their zoos
B．Londoners are happy to see wild animals return to their city
C．Londoners are trying to move wild animals back to the countryside
D．Londoners have welcomed the wild birds，but found foxes a problem
61．According to the passage, the number of species of wildlife in New York's Central Park ．
A．is slowly decreasing B．competes favorably with other cities
C．is on the same level as before D．has more than doubled in the last century
62．Which of the following is NOT a reason that wildlife returning to the cities?
A．Food is plentiful in the cities． B．Wildlife is appreciated in the cities．
C．Wildlife refuges have been built in the cities.
D．Air and water quality has improved in the cities．
“A good book for children should simply be a good book in its own right,” says Mollie Hunter. Born and brought up near Edinburgh, Mollie has devoted her talents to writing primarily for young people. She firmly believes that there is always and should always be a wider audience for any good book whatever its main market is. In Mollie's opinion it is necessary to make full use of language and she enjoys telling a story, which is what every writer should be doing. “If you aren't telling a story, you're a very dead writer indeed,” she says. With the chief function of a writer being to entertain (让人愉快), Mollie is indeed an entertainer. “I have this great love of not only the meaning of language but of the music of language,” she says. “This love goes back to early childhood. I've told stories all my life. I had a school teacher who used to ask us what we would like to be when we grew up and, because my family always had dogs, and I was very good at handling them, I said I wanted to work with dogs, and the teacher always said ‘Nonsense, Mollie, dear, you’ll be a writer.’ So finally I thought that this woman must have something, since she was a good teacher and I decided when I was nine that I would be a writer.”
This childhood intention is described in her novel, A Sound of Chariots, which although written in the third person is clearly autobiographical (自传体的) and gives a picture both of Mollie's ambition (理想) and her struggle towards its achievement. Thoughts of her childhood inevitably(不可避免地)brought thoughts of the time when her home was still a village with buttercup meadows and strawberry fields—sadly now covered with modern houses.“I was once taken back to see it and I felt that somebody had lain dirty hands all over my childhood. I'll never go back,”she said. “Never.”“When I set one of my books in Scotland,”she said,“I can recall my romantic (浪漫的) feelings as a child playing in those fields, or watching the village blacksmith at work. And that's important, because children now know so much so early that romance can't exist for them, as it did for us.”
64. What does Mollie Hunter feel about the nature of a good book?
A. It should not aim at a narrow audience.
B. It should be attractive to young readers.
C. It should be based on original ideas.
D. It should not include too much conversation.
65. In Mollie Hunter's opinion, which of the following is one sign of a poor writer?
A. Being poor in life experience. B. Being short of writing skills.
C. The weakness of description. D. The absence of a story.
66. What do we learn about Mollie Hunter as a young child?
A. She didn't expect to become a writer. B. She didn't enjoy writing stories.
C. She didn't have any particular ambitions. D. She didn't respect her teacher's views.
67. In comparison with children of earlier years, Mollie feels that modern children are .
A. more intelligent B. better informed
C. less eager to learn D. less interested in reality
68. What's the writer's purpose in this text?
A. To describe Mollie Hunter's most successful books.
B. To share her enjoyment of Mollie Hunter's books.
C. To introduce Mollie Hunter's work to a wider audience.
D. To provide information for Mollie Hunter's existing readers.
Although they may not die from lack of love ,adults also need a great amount of affection （友情）and companionship . In the past , many people spent their entire lives in the communities in which they were born and raised .Many more people continued to live with their parents ,brothers and sisters after they were married and had children of their own . By remaining in familiar communities with relatives nearby, families had enough opportunities for friendly contact and for support in time of trouble.
Recent studies suggest that family arrangements in Western societies have not changed as much in the last few centuries as is generally believed .Yet most sociologists agree that in modern societies ,there are fewer opportunities for friendship and support from relatives outside the immediate family .Parents and children often live apart from other relatives ,and seldom visit them .Also ,the family moves when a parent accepts a job in another place or when it decides to live in a better neighborhood. Together , loneliness and mobility（迁移）force immediate family members to depend heavily on one another for affection and companionship.
Because the family is one of the few ongoing sources of affection and companionship in modern societies, a high percentage of people continue to marry ,even though it is possible for a single man and woman to live together without marrying. On the other hand, because affection and companionship have become so important, families are more likely to break up if the husband's or wife's emotional needs are not met within the family circle—even if all other family functions are being satisfactorily performed ,and in this sense ,affection and companionship have become the touchstone of the modern family.
69．It is generally believed that .
A．nowadays all people spend their lives in familiar communities
B．in the past a person could hardly get in touch with relatives
C．family arrangements has changed a great deal
D．Western societies have not changed much in the past few years
70．Sociological studies show that______________ .
A．the more the family moves ,the more support it gets from its distant relatives
B．parents and children live together to make up for the lack of relatives outside the family
C．family arrangements have changed and so there is little need for companion of relatives
D．family members are separated from each other because of lack of support from relatives
71．The word "touchstone" in the last paragraph may be replaced by .
A．result B．trouble C．standard D．benefit
72．In the last paragraph ,the writer mainly wants to say________________ .
A．affection and companionship can be gained from nowhere but the family
B．the best way to get affection and companionship is from the family
C．in modern societies a lot of families break up just for a lack of affection and
D．people get married for affection and companionship and break up the family for a lack of
In the United States, the number of children affected by divorce(离婚) grows by about one million each year. As the number increases, experts continue to debate the effects of divorce on children.
Some experts say divorce is harmful to children. Some studies show that children of divorce have more problems. For example, some children of divorce are more often aggressive toward parents and teachers. They have a greater risk of leaving school before completing their studies. They have more health and learning problems. However, experts note that these problems are not necessarily caused by divorce alone.
During the 1970’s, many Americans believed that divorce was the best solution for married people who were not happy. People did not think divorce would harm children. They thought children would go through a period of change when their parents ended their marriage. Then the children would be all right.
These beliefs have changed in recent years. Researcher Judith Wallerstein studied more than one hundred children of divorce over a twenty-five-year period. She says some children never recover from divorce. She says they often have problems with their own adult relationships as a result of their parents’ divorce.
Ms. Wallerstein says her study proves that parents should stay together for their children, even if they are unhappy. However, some people say that children suffer more in a situation where there is much conflict. They say it is better for children to live with one divorced parent than to live with two parents who are angry and unhappy.
Other experts note that many children of divorce do not have serious problems. This is because their parents are able to deal with the situation in a responsible way.
Experts say that some people who get divorced are able to put the needs of their children first. They say that they are able to show the children that their love and support will continue after the divorce.
73. The passage focuses on _______.
A. whether parents should divorce
B. whether children suffer from parents’ divorce
C. whether children should stay with divorced parents
D. whether parents should put children’s needs first when getting divorced
74. According to Ms. Wallerstein, _______.
A. it is better for parents not to divorce
B. children should not stay with divorced parents
C. it is better to live with one divorced parent
D. children of divorced parents don’t have serious problems
75. Divorce results in all the following problems except that _______.
A. the children are more aggressive to their teachers
B. the children are more likely to quit school
C. the children may have problems with their own adult relationship
D. the children may experience more pressure from society
第一节 填空（共10小题； 每小题1分）
Chinese are very generous when it comes to educating their children. Not caring about the money, parents often send their children to the best schools or even abroad to England, the US or Australia. They also want their children to take extra-courses activities where they will either learn a musical instrument or ballet, or other classes that will give them a head start in life. The Chinese believe that the more expensive an education is, the better it is. So parents will spend unreasonable amount of money on education. Even poor couples will buy a computer for their son or daughter.
However, what most parents fail to see is that the best education they can give their children is usually very cheap.
Parents can see that their children’s skills vary, skilled in some areas while poor in others. What most parents fail to realize though, is that today’s children lack self-respect and self-confidence.
The problem is that parents are only educating their children on how to take multiple-choice tests and how to study well, but parents are not teaching them the most important skills they need to be confident, happy and clever.
Parents can achieve this by teaching practical skills like cooking , sewing and doing other housework.
Teaching a child to cook will improve many of the skills that he will need later in life. Cooking demands patience and time. It is an enjoyable but difficult experience. A good cook always tries to improve his cooking, so he will learn to work hard and gradually finish his job successfully. His result, a well-cooked dinner, will give him much satisfaction and a lot of confidence.
Some old machines, such as a broken radio or TV set that you give your child to play with will make him curious and arouse his interest. He will spend hours looking at them, trying to fix them; your child might become an engineer when he grows up. These activities are not only teaching a child to read a book, but rather to think, to use his mind. And that is more important.
What Chinese Parents Do In 76________ Their Children

Recently, the students of Senior 3 in our school have had a discussion about whether we should have classes on weekends.
30% of them think they should have classes on weekends because the College Entrance Examination this year will be held in June, and students should make full use of free time to review what they have learnt.
Another30% are against the idea of having classes on weekends. They believe students should have a good rest on weekends so that they can study more effectively during the weekdays.
The other 40% of the students don’t agree with either of the ideas above. In their opinion, study and rest are both important for students. They suggest one day of the weekend should be used to study and during the other day they have a rest.
I think we should have classes on weekends because our time is limited. We should make good use of our time to study.
