It sounds like a fantasy, but it could be about to come true thanks to a robot chef developed by British scientists. Those scientists have come up with a set of robotic arms so smart that they are capable of cooking meals all by themselves. The device will be sold from as early as 2017 as part of a purpose-built high-tech kitchen. Scientists at Moley Robotics spent almost 18 years developing the hands. According to its creators, the arms can chop, stir, whisk and baste well enough to recreate almost anything you would care to eat, whether it is a simple home-cooked supper, or a complicated creation designed by a world-class chef. The hands move a little slowly, hovering strangely above the work surface whenever they are not busy, but they imitate human movements closely enough that they can do things such as wiping a spoon on the edge of a pan to prevent drips. Mr. Oleynik, who is leading the project, said, ―All the things which are possibl e with the hand are possible here. There is no limitation. A lot of people want to go to Michelin-starred restaurants, but they are quite expensive and may be quite far from the home. This is an opportunity for people to enjoy very good food, and for a reasonable price. ‖ The only cuisine that is off the robot’s menu at the moment is sushi, which requires extremely steady pressure and nimble fingers to make, but the team plan to conquer that as well by the time it goes on sale. 21. People go to Michelin-starred restaurants in order to______. A. appreciate car tires. C. see the new robot chefs B. escape from work D. enjoy delicious meals
22. What does the underlined word ―they‖ in Paragraph 2 refer to?
A. British scientists C. Cooks at restaurants A. Sushi B. Beef C. Bread
B. Household wives D. The robot chef’s arms D. Sandwich
23. Which kind of food CAN’T the robot chef cook at present? 24. What can we infer from the passage? A. Hands of a robot chef can perform exactly like a cook. B. It is uncertain when the robot can cook all kinds of food. C. Michelin-starred restaurants are suitable for many people. D. Robot chefs are available at shopping malls. B About five years ago, an American electrical engineer named Scott Brusaw and his wife Julie came up with the idea of putting solar panels on the ground rather than the roof. Then they began to develop the Solar Roadway. The Solar Roadway is an intelligent road that provides clean renewable energy using power from the sun while providing safer driving conditions, along with power and data delivery. They predict that the Solar Roadway will pay for itself through the generation of electricity along with other forms of income and that the same money that is being used to build and resurface current roads can be used to build the Solar Roadways. Each Solar Road Panel measures roughly 4 meters by 4 meters and contains a microprocessor (微处理器) that monitors and controls the panel, while communicating with neighboring panels and the vehicles traveling overhead. The inventors suggest that this provides a communications device every 4 meters on every road which could be used for example to warn drivers of cars which are moving across a centre line and various other speed control problems. The top of the Solar Road panels is made of super-strong glass that would offer vehicles the tractions (抓地力) they need. According to the inventors, the Solar Roadway creates and carries clean renewable electricity and therefore electric vehicles can be recharged at any conveniently located rest stop, or at any business that has paved Solar Road Panels in their parking lots. The inventors say their Solar Roadway has many functions and advantages from main roads to driveways, parking lots, bike paths, sidewalks and runways. The Federal Highway Administration has given Brusaw $100,000 to develop the invention and Brusaw hopes to build a smart-road parking lot in the coming spring . 25. In the inventors’ opinion, the Solar Roadway _____.
A. is too expensive to build at present B. costs no more money than current roads C. can provide as many data as present computers D. will bring them a large sum of money 26. It can be inferred from the text that _____. A. the Solar Roadway has already been put into use B. $100,000 is only enough to build a smart-road parking lot C. the Solar Roadway is not available for gas-powered cars D. future electric vehicles can be charged anytime and anywhere 27. What can be the best title for the text? A. Solar-powered smart road of the future B. The great changes on the roadway C. The influence the Solar Roadway has on people D. The Solar Road — a much faster road C A tender woman, or an independent one, which one would you prefer? A recent research shows that most people would choose the latter. This type of woman is called a nühanzi (―tough woman‖). Experts believe these characteristics have social and psychological roots among young females in China. Su Hao’s friends all call her a tough woman, because she can finish tough tasks usually carried out by men. For example, she carries 10-litre water to her dormitory on the 5th floor. ―I depend on no one but myself,‖ she says. According to a recent survey by China Youth Daily, tough women have become rather common in society. Of the 21,265 respondents, 78.5 percent said they are familiar with a tough woman. About 50 percent said they like women with tough characteristics, while less than 29 percent expressed the opposite view. Why are tough women gaining popularity? Shen Meng, a psychological consultant, believes the fierce competition in society is contributing to this trend. ―Women are often in a disadvantaged position compared to men,‖ Shen says. ―In order to survive, they ha ve to be independent, strong and tough.‖ Liu Xiaolin, professor of psychology at Wuhan Mental Health Center, believes tough women are brought up this way. They are often on close relationship with their fathers, who teach their daughters to be brave and decisive,‖ he says. As a result, these women are more likely to be psychologically healthy and more tolerant to stress, according to Liu.
Though Liu believes that this is a good trend, Hu Shenzhi, a psychologist at the Guangdong Sunflower Counseling Center, says the popularity of tough woman indicates an unclear line between gender identities, which can lead to relationship problems. ―Some women with characteristics that differ from the traditional female image may have a difficult time finding Mr Right,‖ he says. ―Even if they get married, their manly characteristics might cause family conflicts. 28. Which of the followings doesn’t belong to the characteristics of a tough woman? A. She is independent of others in daily life. B. She can solve problems usually for men. C. She is more tolerant to stress. D. She is soft and tender to others. 29. How many respondents like tough women? A. about 21,265. B. about 16,700. C. about 10,600. D. about 6,200 30. Why are there more tough women nowadays? A. Because tough women are more lovely. B. Because of the fierce competition in society. C. Because girls often love fathers more. D. Because more women want to be independent. 31. What problems may tough women have in their life? A. They may have difficulty with marriage. B. They often suffer gender confusion. C. It’s difficult for them to be friends. D. They have different characteristics from traditional female images. D Our ―Mommy and Me‖ time began two years ago. My next -door neighbor and fellow mother, Christie, and I were out in our front yards, watching seven children of age 6 and under ride their bikes up and down. ―I wish I could take one of my children out alone,‖ said Christie. Then we worked out a plan: When Christie takes one of her children out, I’ll watch her other three. And when she watches two of mine, I’ll take someone out. The children were extremely quick to accept the idea of ―Mommy and Me‖ time. Christie’s daughter, McKenzie, went first. When she returned, the other children asked her tons of questions. McKenzie was smiling broadly. Christie looked refreshed and happy. ―She’s
like a different child when there’s no one else around,‖ Christie shared with me quickly. With her mother all to herself, McKenzie didn’t have to make an effort to gain attention. Just as Christie had noticed changes in McKenzie, I also discovered something different in each of my children during our alone times. For example, I am always surprised when my daughter, who is seldom close to me, holds my hand frequently. My stuttering（口吃的）son, Tom, doesn’t stutter once during our activities since he doesn’t have to struggle for a chance to speak. And the other son, Sam, who’s always a follower when around other children shines as a leader during our times together. The ―Mommy and Me‖ time allows us to be simply alone and away with each child ---talking, sharing, and laughing, which has been the biggest gain. Every child deserves to be an only child at least once in a while. 32. What is the text mainly about? A. The happy life of two families. . B. The experience of the only child being with mother. C. The advantage of spending time with one child at a time D. The basic needs of children. 33. Right after McKenzie came back, the other children were _____________. A. happy B. curious C. regretful D. friendly 34. What is one of the changes the author finds in her children? A. Tom has less difficulty in speaking. B. Sam holds her hand more often. C. The daughter acts like a leader. D. The boys become better followers. 35. The author seems to believe that ___________. A. having brothers and sisters is fun B. parents should watch others’ children C. it’s tiring to look after three children D. every child needs parents’ full attention 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。 Rabbits are easy to raise.
