She had one big ambition—to play the drums in a band. But one big obstacle lay in her way. To be good enough to play in a band, Brenda had to practice a lot, but she lived next-door to a lot of old people. Many of them are sick. She knew that the sound of beating drums would really get on their nerves. So, she had tried playing in the strangest places: a basement, a kitchen, and even in a shower. But there was always someone it would annoy. One day, while watching a science documentary on TV, she heard that sound cannot travel in space, because there's no air. At that moment, Brenda Bongos decided to become a sort of musical astronaut. With the help of a lot of time, books and work, Brenda built a space bubble. This was a big glass ball connected to a machine which sucked out all the air inside. All that would be left inside was a drum kit（成套设备） and a chair. Brenda got into the space suit she had made, entered the bubble, turned on the machine, and played those drums like a wild child. It wasn't long before Brenda Bongos came very famous. Many people came to see her play in her space bubble. Shortly afterwards she came out of the bubble and started giving concerts. Her fame spread so much that the government suggested that
she be part of a unique space journey. Finally, Brenda was a real musical astronaut, and had gone far beyond her first ambition of playing drums in a band. Years later, when asked how she had achieved all this, she thought for a moment, and said: ''If those old people next – door hadn't mattered so much to me, I wouldn't have found a solution, and none of this would have ever happened.'' 56. Why did Brenda try to play in the strangest places? A. Because she didn't want others to hear her play. B. Because she didn't mean to disturb others. C. Because she didn't have her own room. D. Because she didn’t like her neighbors. 57. Brenda started to give concerts _______. A. after she practiced in her space bubble B. when she became part of the unique space journey C. after she became a real musicalastronaut D. when people came to see her in the space bubble 58. Brenda became famous because _______. A. she was good at music and science B. she became a real musical astronaut C. she invented a special way of practice D. she played well and had a talent 59. Which of the following can be used to describe Brenda? A. Kind, hardworking and clever. B. Brave, kind and hardworking. C. Lovely, brave and kind. D. Nervous, kind and clever. 60. It can be inferred from the text that: " _______". A. He laughs best who laughs last B. It's never too old to learn C. Two heads are better than one D. One good turn deserves another B China plans to make new rules to give more controls over the growing number of blogs and webcasts.

C When you see homework covering the kitchen table and toys are piling up around the sofa，you probably wish there was a bit more space．You are not alone．Nearly a third of parents say they feel squeezed into their homes but cannot afford to move to a bigger property，a report reveals today． Twenty—nine percent say ‘their property is too small to fit the size of their family’—rising to 40 percent for those 34 and under ． One in four children is ‘forced to share’ a bedroom， according to the Finda Property， com website． Property analyst Samantha Baden said：“Afford ability remains a key issue for families， 英语试题第 6 页 共 10 页 with the average cost of a three-bedroom home around ￡193,000．”Very few can afford to buy—or to rent—a property of the size they want and in the area they desire to live in，according to Miss Baden． A recent report，from investment firm LV，also found that many‘ space—starved parents’ are pushed into a two—bedroom home which was perfect when they were a young couple， but has no space for three or so children． Grown—up children who cannot afford to leave home are also adding to the problem facing families in Britain's
‘big squeeze’． For a home to be the correct size, which means it is not overcrowded，parents must have their own bedroom．Children under ten can share, as well as same—sex children between ten and 20．Anyone over 21 also needs their own room． The report comes as official figures，published yesterday by the Land Registry， revealing house prices are falling sharply in every region except London ． The worst—hit area is the North East，where, average house prices have fallen to below ￡100,000 for the first time in seven years.

Yet pleasure at your own can disappear if you learn that a fellow worker has been given a bigger one. Indeed, if he is known as being lazy, you might even be quite cross （发脾气的）. Such behavior is regarded 英语试题第 7页 共 10 页 as “all too human”, with the underlying belief that other animals would not be able to have this finely developed sense of sadness. But a study by Sarah Brosnan of Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia, which has just been published in Nature, suggests that it is all too monkey, as well. The researchers studied the behaviors of some kind of female brown monkeys. They look smart. They are good-natured, co-operative creatures, and they share their food
happily. Above all, like female human beings, they tend to pay much closer attention to the value of “goods and services” than males. Such characteristics make them perfect subjects for Doctor Brosnan’s study. The researchers spent two years teaching their monkeys to exchange tokens (奖券) for food. Normally, the monkeys were happy enough to exchange pieces of rock for pieces of cucumber. However, when two monkeys were placed in separate and connected rooms, so that each other could observe what the other is getting in return for its rock, they became quite different. In the world of monkeys，grapes are excellent goods (and much preferable to cucumbers). So when one monkey was handed a grape in exchange for her token, the second was not willing to hand hers over for a mere piece of cucumber. And if one received a grape without having to provide her token in exchange at all, the other either shook her own token at the researcher, or refused to accept the cucumber. Indeed, the mere presence of a grape in the other room (without an actual monkey to eat it) was enough to bring about dissatisfaction in a female monkey. The researches suggest that these monkeys, like humans, are guided by social senses. In the wild, they are co-operative and group-living. Such co-operation is likely to be firm only when each animal feels it is not being cheated. Feelings of anger when unfairly treated, it seems, are not the nature of human beings alone. Refusing a smaller reward completely makes these feelings clear to other animals of the group. However, whether such a sense of fairness developed independently in monkeys and humans, or whether it comes from the common roots that they had 35 million years ago, is, as yet, an unanswered question. w.w.^w..c.#o@m 71. According to the passage, which of the following statements is TRUE? A. Only monkeys and humans can have the sense of fairness in the world. B. Women will show more dissatisfaction than men when unfairly treated. C. In the wild, monkeys are never unhappy to share their food with each other. D. Monkeys can exchange cucumbers for grapes, for grapes are more attractive. 72. The underlined statement “it is all too monkey” means that ________. A. monkeys are also angry with lazy fellows B. feeling angry at unfairness is also monkey’s nature C. monkeys, like humans, tend to be envious of each other D. no animals other than monkeys can develop such feelings 73. Female monkeys of this kind are chosen for the research most probably because they are ____. A. more likely to pay attention to the value of what they get B. attentive to researchers’ instructions C. nice in both appearance and behaviors D. more ready to help others than their male companions 74.Which of the following conclusions is TRUE according to the passage? A. Human beings' feelings of 英语试题第 anger are 8 developed from the monkeys. 页 共 10 页 B. In the research, male monkeys are less likely to exchange food with others. C. Co-operation between monkeys stays firm before the realization of being cheated.
D. Only monkeys and humans have the sense of fairness dating back to 35 million years ago. 75. What can we infer about the monkeys in Sarah’s study? A. The monkeys can be trained to develop social senses. B. They usually show their feelings openly as humans do. C. The monkeys may show their satisfaction with equal treatment. D. Co-operation among the monkeys remains effective in the wild. 第 II 卷 （共 45 分） 第四部分 书面表达（共两节，满分 45 分） 第一节 阅读表达（第 77 题 2 分，第 76、78、80 题 3 分，第 79 题 4 分，满分 15 分） 阅读下面的短文并回答问题，然后将答案定到答题纸相应的位置上（清注意问题后的 词数要求）。  The kids get home from school—tired, hungry and looking for entertainment. The last thing they want to do is to get on with their homework. However, at this very time, parents often remind the kids to do their homework by nagging（唠叨） and cajoling（哄骗）. If that doesn’t work, homework wars break out. But with some basic rules and good habits, they can be avoided.  When it comes to preparing your kids for homework success, one of the first things to begin is the environment they are working in. Not all children will like working alone in their bedrooms. Come children might prefer to study at the kitchen table, and providing that location works for the family, there’s no reason to force them into another room.  Try to keep the house relatively quiet and free of distractions. If you’re worried you can’t provide the right equipment or environment at home, see whether the local library could offer an alternative place to study. Also, some schools will offer homework clubs, where students can complete homework and seek help from a supervising teacher if needed.  Once you’ve got the study environment sorted, think about when it is _____ for homework to be done. If children are old enough to make plans, it can be worth sitting down together and breaking projects into smaller tasks to be completed on different nights. This can stop kids form feeling overwhelmed（被压垮）and it also teaches them time management skills.  If you follow the above rules, you can avoid homework wars down the track. And if tensions are rising at home around homework, remember that a little bit of kindness can go a long way. 76. What’s the main idea of the text?

Maybe your parents are worried that you will spend so much time on it that your study will be affected. I suggest you have a good talk with your parents. You can also turn to your dance teacher for help. You should make your parents aware of the benefits of the training class. For example, the training will build up your body and make your mind relaxed. Good health and a sharp mind will certainly contribute to better study results in turn. What’s more, you can communicate with more people and learn a lot about society. Of course, you must practise that you will not spend too much time on it. I’m sure your parents will agree with you in the end. Yours , Tom
