For each of them there are four choices marked A, B, C and D. Choose the one that fits best according to the passage.)
Dear 7th Grader, I am glad that you love your mother because the rest of your feelings about her may change as you get older and mature (成熟的). While it is true that your mother’s smoking, partying and cursing make you ashamed, the fact that you want to stay separate from her doings is notable (值 得注意的) and very smart. It shows that you are a winner, not a loser. I am guessing, therefore, that you do not bring shame to yourself, and that is a good thing. So keep it that way and keep away from your mother’s habits. At the same time, get the best grades you can and join clubs and other school activities. Offer to do community service on weekends and visit your friends at their homes. Unfortunately, you are not alone. Many teens live in homes with immature, misguided and selfish parents. Those kids often feel lonely and separate from the rest of their friends because of their parents’ bad behaviour. But they develop good friendships with nice kids, do well in school, and often find a teacher or guidance advisor who makes all the difference! Do it, and keep looking forward to your own fine future. Maybe by then your mother may even see the light and realise how surprising you really are. Best of luck! Michelle
46. The kid asks for advice on how to ________ . A. make her mother change B. deal with her situation C. get along well with her classmates D. start a new family 47. The girl can't move away from her family because ________ . A. she is still a school student B. her parents don't allow it C. she isn't mature and it is illegal D. Michelle told her not to 48. Michelle doesn't address her letter to“Prisoner of a Crazy House” possibly because she ________. A. tries to be polite B. doesn't write to the kid alone C. knows the girl is in Grade 7 D. wants to encourage the kid 49. According to the passage, Michelle advises the girl to ________. A. try talking to her mother about her future
B. stick to her attitude towards her mother's habits C. understand her mother's habits and get used to them D. try to keep away from her mother 50. What does Michelle mainly express by writing the last four paragraphs? A. Don't worry too much about the problem. B. Many parents act terribly.
C. Parents' manners make little difference. D. The girl is not speaking for herself. B)非选择题： 阅读下列材料， 然后按要求完成所给出的题目。 (Read the following three passages. Each passage is followed by several questions. Respond to the questions according to the passage.) A The best advice young men and women can hear these days is not “Get Rich”. It's “Go West”. (55) Those who hope to make their fortunes or, at the very least, find good jobs or life long careers have a better chance of doing so in China's western provinces than in the increasingly crowded eastern cities. Along the eastern coast, cities are filled with newcomers looking for work. They seek anything from the lowest-level unskilled jobs to instant-millionaire Internet chances of a lifetime. Few have found the latter, and few ever will. Some 160 years ago, young men and women streamed into New York, Philadelphia, Boston—the United States' equivalent of China's Shanghai, Guangzhou and Beijing. All of these young people were searching for work, for riches and for fame. Few found any of that. The rest joined the masses working hard at low-level jobs, trying to support themselves and their families. Horace Greeley, a well-known American newspaper editor of the period had sound advice for those seeking work. “Do not,” Greeley said, “lounge (sit or stand in a lazy way) in the cities! There is room and health in the country, away from the crowds of idles (people who waste time doing nothing) and imbeciles (a person of weak mind). Go West.” In the mid-19th century, when Greeley issued his call to go west, America was about to develop its western regions—much as China is today. Those who went West found jobs What was needed then in the American West is what is needed now in China's western regions. Men and women with determination should make something of themselves. This has nothing to do with the Internet. It has nothing to do with becoming a movie star, a pop music idol, or a Bill Gates clone. It has everything to do with skills, and with reality. Questions 51—54: Answer the questions or complete the statements.
51. Why does the author think “Go West” is the best advice for young people in China? 52. The author mentions the Americans of the mid-19th century because he wants ________. 53. The underlined word “sound” in the fourth paragraph means “________”. 54. What is needed in China's West now according to the author? Question 55: Translate the underlined sentence into Chinese.
Questions 56—58: Complete the table according to the passages with no more than four words in each blank.
Questions 59—60: Answer the questions. 59. What is Animal Hospital? 60. What is the purpose of these three advertisements? C The government of Norway is planning to build an unusual storage centre on an island in the Arctic Ocean. The place will be large enough to hold about two million seeds. The goal is to preserve all crops known to scientists. The British magazine New Scientist published details of the plan. The structure will be designed to protect the world's food supply against nuclear war, climate change and other possible threats. It will be built in a mountain on the Norwegian island of Spitsbergen. The mountain is less than one thousand kilometres from the North Pole, the northernmost position on earth. An international group called the Global Crop Diversity Trust is working on the project. The director of the group, Cary Fowler, spoke to New Scientist. He said the project would let the world rebuild agriculture if, in his words, “the worst came to the worst”. Norway is expected to start work next year. The project is expected to cost three million dollars. Workers will drill deep into the side of a sandstone mountain. Temperatures in the area never rise above 0℃. The seeds will be protected behind concrete (混凝土) walls a metre thick and high-security door. The magazine report says the collection will represent the products of ten thousand years of farming. Most of the seeds at first will come from collections at seed banks in Africa, Asia and Latin America. (65) To last a long time, seeds need to be kept at very low temperatures. Workers will not be present all the time, but they plan to replace the air inside the storage space each winter. Winter temperatures on the island are about eighteen degrees below 0℃. The cold weather would protect the seeds even if the air could not be replaced.
Mr Fowler says the proposed (计划的) structure will be the world's most secure gene bank. He says the plant seeds would only be used when all other seeds are gone for some reason. Norway first proposed the idea in the 1980s, but security concerns delayed the plan. Questions 61—64: Answer the questions or complete the statements. 61. The project is meant to ________________________ . 62. What is the most important factor in protecting the seeds? 63. Which word in the last paragraph means “secret”? 64. The title for the passage might be “Plan for a Noah's Ark (诺亚方舟) of ________ ”. (with no more than three words) Question 65: Translate the underlined sentences into Chinese.

A) One possible version: In many countries, sixteen or eighteen is the age at which a person becomes an adult. Young people at this age can get a part-time job, and begin to receive their own income. Some can also vote or obtain a driver's license. There are responsibilities that go along with these rights. Getting a part-time job means you have to pay income tax. Driving a car demands that you follow certain rules and regulations. For young people to use their right to vote wisely, they must have an understanding of the needs of society, and learn how politics work. B) One possible version: The Internet is a source of information, where we can easily and quickly find materials, which may help us in our studies. We can shop through the Internet, which saves time and enables us to buy things which are unavailable in our local shops. We can quickly communicate with others - via e-mails or various programmes, such as QQ. Behind all these advantages, however, are some problems. Information we find on the Internet may be worthless, and sometimes it is difficult to separate “trash” from valuable information. Also we may easily become addicted to the Internet and lose contact with real life. What is worse, some scenes of violence and sex on the Internet may harm children. We should handle its problems, however, while we develop its good points. With proper management of the Internet people can experience all the benefits of the information revolution.
