"I never knew he was your stepfather." You see, I never called him that. At first, he was no one special in my life. Then he became my friend. In time, I felt he was also my father. Leo married my mother when I was eleven. Two years later we moved into a house in a new suburban development, where we put down roots. At first o ur lawn was just a mud with wild grass, but Leo saw bright possibilities. "We'll plant trees there to give us shade as well as some flowers," he said. And just these little touches made our house different from all the others. More important, a real family was
forming. Leo was becoming a full-time parent, and I was learning what it meant to have a father. Weekday mornings when the weather was bad, Leo often drove me to school. Having a father drop you off may have been something my classmates took for granted, but I always thought it was wonderful. Saturday mornings, we went to the hardware shop, then stepped into the five-and-ten, buying a sports magazine or something else. Some people might think that doing shopping together is nothing special, but I, who had ever before spent my childhood watching other families do their everyday activities, experienced them now with extreme delight. Looking back, I realized that Leo gave me what I needed most—the experience of doing ordinary things together as a family. Soon after we moved to the suburbs, one of our new neighbors introduced herself to me. She had already met my mother and Leo. "You know," she said, "you look just like your father." I knew she was just making conversation--but even so... "Thank you", I said. Why tell her anything different? 21．The writer's purpose in writing this passage is _______. A．to show his pride to have a good stepfather B．to show how interesting a person Leo was C．to remind us of our parents D．to explain why they moved to the suburbs 22．The phrase “put down roots”in the second paragraph means _______. A．farmed B．planted C．settled D．worked 23．In the writer's opinion, _______. A．it is not easy to live with a stepfather B．not all the stepfathers are as good as Leo C． the husband and wife must think more about their children before they divorce D．in stepfamilies the love and friendship are extremely precious 24 ． The last sentence “ Why tell her anything different? ” means that __________. . A．he should have told the truth B．he wouldn't tell her the truth C．he wanted to tell her something that had nothing to do with Leo D．he wanted to keep silence whenever he met the neighbors B Will Nanfang University of Science and Technology in Shenzhen announce a new beginning for China’s higher education reform? It’s too early to answer. But its presence is challenging the Ministry of Education. Even without the approval of the ministry it seems that the school is determined to move forward and enroll 50 students, so-called child prodigies(奇才), to begin classes on March l, 2011.On graduating in 2015, these students will receive a diploma unauthorized by the Ministry of Education----unlike the students of their age from the state-run universities.
The school is committed to modeling itself on Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, but if the government will not approve the school, the situation could cause a lot of trouble for those 50 students if they want to do graduate studies at other higher learning institutions. Other schools could turn their applications down for their unauthorized diplomas. The difficulties, however, have not frightened students and their parents away. On Dec.18, 2010 more than 1,000 students and their parents visited Nanfang University of Science and Technology for interviews. Private investment marks the school out from other higher learning institutions in the nation. Not a penny comes from the government. So the government will have no voice in how the school will be run. The Ministry of Education has published a comprehensive plan for education reform and development between 2011 and 2020.The goal is to make China’s higher education internationally competitive. To accomplish this goal, the government should have the courage to let the educators who have big ideas try them out. The ministry should have applauded the independence. The school in Shenzhen has shown and encouraged more to do likewise. Education reform in China has reached a new and crucial stage. Nanfang University of Science and Technology has a long way to go to prove itself competitive rather than a diploma mill. 25．Over 1,000 students and parents visited the school because __________. . A．they believe that the school will have a bright future B．they believe the government is sure to approve the school C．the school models itself on Hong Kong University successfully D．they will never do graduate studies at other higher learning institutions 26．The trouble the students in the school may have is that ________. A．the government will have no voice in the school B．they won’t receive any diploma when graduating from the school C．other schools are unlikely to accept their diploma from the school D．they w ill not learn how to be competitive 27．What does the author think of Nanfang University of Science and Technology? A．It is another kind of diploma mill. B．It’s impossible for the school to be competitive. C．It will never get the approval from the Ministry of Education. D．Its independence from the government may benefit the education reform. 28．What is the best title of the passage? A．University of New Style. B．China’s Education Reform. C．Modeling Hong Kong University. D．Authorized or Not? C Sparrow is a fast-food chain with 200 restaurants. Some years ago, the group to which Sparrow belonged was taken over by another company. Although Sparrow
showed no sign of declining, the chain was generally in an unhealthy state. With more and more fast-food concepts reaching the market, the Sparrow menu had to struggle for attention. And to make matters worse, its new owner had no plans to give it the funds（基金） it required. Sparrow failed to grow for another two years. Until a new CEO, Carl Pearson, decided to build up its market share. He did a survey, which showed that consumers who already used Sparrow restaurants were extremely positive about the chain, while customers of other fast-food chains were unwilling to turn away from them. Sparrow had to develop a new promotional campaign. Pearson faced a battle over the future of the Sparrow brand. The chain’s owner now favore d rebranding Sparrow as Marcy’s restaurants. Pearson resisted, arguing for an advertising campaign designed to convince customers that visits to Sparrow restaurants were fun. Such an attempt to establish a positive relationship between a company and the general public was unusual for that time. Pearson strongly believed that numbers were the key to success, rather than customers speeding power. Finally, the owner accepted his idea. The campaign itself changed the traditional advertising style of the fast-food industry. The TV ads of Sparrow focused on entertainment and featured original songs performed by a variety of stars. Instead of showing the superiority of a specific product, the intension was to put Sparrow in the hearts of potential customers. Pearson also made other decisions which he believed would contribute to the new Sparrow image. For example, he offered to lower the rent of any restaurants which achieved a certain increase in their turnover (营业额). These efforts paid off, and Sparrow soon became one of the most successful fast-food chains in the regions where it operated. 29. Which was one of the problems Sparrow faced before Pearson became CEO? A. The number of its customers was declining B. Its customers found the food unhealthy C. It was in need of financial support D. Most of its restaurants were closed 30. What does the underlined word “them” in Paragraph 2 refer to? A. customers of Sparrow restaurants B. Sparrow restaurants C. customers of other fast-food chains D. other fast-food chains 31. For what purpose did Pearson start the advertising campaign? A. To build a good relationship with the public. B. To stress the unusual tradition of Sparrow. C. To learn about customers’ spending power. D. To meet the challenge from Marcy’s restaurants. 32. What was Pearson’s achievement as a CEO? A. He managed to pay off Sparrow’s debts. B. He made Sparrow much more competitive. C. He helped Sparrow take over a company.
D. He improved the welfare of Sparrow employees.

36 You can find it on buildings, sidewalks, street signs and trash cans from Tokyo to Paris, from Moscow to Cape Town. Street art has be come a global culture. Even art museums and galleries are collecting the works of street artists. Street art started very secretly because it was illegal to paint on public and private property without permission. 37 Some think it is a crime and others think it is a very beautiful new form of culture. Art experts say that the street art movement began in New York in the 1960s. Young adults painted words and other images on the walls and trains. This colourful style of writing became known as graffiti（涂鸦）, whose art showed that young people wanted to rebel against society. Street artists do their work for different reasons. 38 They choose street art because it is closer to the people. Some artists try to express their political opinion in their works. Others like to do things that are not allowed and hope they can’t be caught. Advertising companies also use street art in their ads because it gives people the impressions of youth and energy. 39 Artists can show their pictures to people all over the world. Many people, however, say that seeing a picture on the Internet is never as good as seeing it alive. 40 There, it will continue to change and grow. A. Street art used to be illegal, but now has become popular. B. In today’s world, the Internet has a big influence on street art. C. People often have different opinions about street art. D. The street art movement lives with the energy and life of a big city. E. With the development of science and technology, different art styles come into the Internet. F. Street art, a very popular form of art spreads quickly all over the world. G. Some of them do not like artists who make so much money in galleries and museums. 第三部分 英语知识运用（共两节，满分 45 分） 第一节 完形填空（共 20 小题；每题 1.5 分，满分 30 分） 阅读下面短文，从短文后各题所给的四个选项（A, B, C 和 D）中，选出可以 填入空白处的最佳选项，并在答题卡上将该项涂黑。 I had arrived at the airport about 30 minutes before the check-in.
