第三部分：阅读理解（共 20 小题；每小题 2 分，满分 40 分） 阅读下列短文，从每题所给的四个选项中，选出最佳选项。 A Mark Twain tells a boy’s story in The Adventure of Huckleberry Finn. Huck is a poor child, without a mother or home. His father drinks too much alcohol and always beats him. Huck’s situation has freed him from the limitation of society. He wanders in
the woods and goes fishing. He stays out all night and does not go to school. He smokes. Huck runs away from home. He meets Jim, a black man who has escaped from slavery(奴 隶制). They travel together on a raft(木筏) made of wood down the Mississippi River. Mark twain started writing “Huckleberry Finn” as a children’s story. But it soon became serious. The story tells about the social evil（罪恶）of slavery, seen through the eyes of an innocent child. Huck’s ideas about people were formed by the white society in which he lived. So, at first, he does not question slavery. Huck knows that important people believe slavery is natural, the law of God. So, he thinks it is his duty to tell Jim’s owners where to find him. Later, Huck comes to understand that Jim is a good man. He finds he cannot carry out his plan to tell Jim’s owners about his whereabouts(下落). Instead, he decides to help Jim escape. He decides to do this, even if God punished him. 51. What is the passage mainly about? A. The outline (概要) of The Adventure of Huckleberry Finn. B. The childhood of Huckleberry. C. The reason why Mark Twain wrote the story. D. The effect of slavery. 52. The underlined expression “he does not question slavery” means that ________. A. he is sure about everything of slavery. B. he has no question to ask the owner of the slaves. C. he thinks that slavery is reasonable. D. he believes that slavery is wrong. 53. What can be inferred from the text? A. Huck is a white boy. B. Huck’s childhood is a reflection(反映) of that of Mark Twain’s. C. It ’s Huck’s situation that makes him decide to travel with Jim. D. Huck will be punished by God for what he does. 54. Why does Huck change his mind at last? A. He has made friends with Jim. B. He finds out the weakness of slavery. C. God tells him to do so. D. He finds that Jim is a good man B When it comes to reading, high school students tend to get tired of it. However, in reality, reading is of great importance to one’s language learning. Thus, if you want to improve your reading ability, you need to practice more. When you practice reading with passages shorter than book length, do not try to take in each word separately, one after the other. It is much more difficult to grasp the broad theme of the passage this way, and you will also get the stuck on individual words which may not be absolutely essential to a general understanding of the passage. It is a good idea to skim through the passage very quickly first to get the general idea of each paragraph. Titles, paragraph headings and emphasized word can be a great
help in getting this skeleton outline of the passage. It is surprising how many people do not read titles, introductions or paragraph headings. Can you, without looking back, remember the title of this passage and the heading of this paragraph? Most paragraphs of a passage or chapter have a “topic sentence” which expresses the central idea. The remaining sentence expand or support that idea. It has been estimated that between 60% and 90% of all expositive（说明的）paragraphs in English have the topic sentence first. Always pay special attention to the first sentence of a paragraph; it is most likely to give you the main idea. Sometimes , though , the first sentence in the paragraph does not have the feel of “main idea” sentence. It does not seem to give us enough new information to justify a paragraph. The next most likely place to look for the topic sentence is the last sentence of the paragraph. Remember that the opening and closing paragraphs of a passage or chapter are particularly important . The opening paragraph suggests the general direction and content of the piece, while the closing paragraph often summarizes the very essence （精髓）. 55．It is a good idea to skim through a passage quickly first ________. A. at about 350 w. P.m.(words per minute) B. to get the general idea of each paragraph C. so that you can take in each word separately D. to make sure you get to the end at least once 56．The topic sentence of an expository（说明文） paragraph in English_______. A. usually comes in the middle B. is most likely to be found at the end C. is most often at the beginning D. is usually left out in expository writing 57．Most expository paragraphs in English have a clearly defined topic sentence. In such paragraphs the topic sentence comes first ________. A. in about 40% of cases B. in about 80% of cases C. in about 20% cases D. very rarely 58．The closing paragraph of a piece of writing _______. A. is not really very important B. is often unnecessary repetition C. often comes at the end D. often summarizes the essence of the passage C The influence of America is increasing in my country. Spanish people drink Coca Cola, wear blue jeans, watch Hollywood movies, listen to American music, and eat fast food, and they do these things every day. I think that American movies are a good way to spread American culture because people are often influenced by what they see in the movies. Most of the programs and documentaries (纪录片) we watch on TV are from America, and most of the movies we go to see are made in Hollywood. In the last few years, the government has tried to protect the Spanish movies. Now, in our cinemas, at least twenty percent of the movies which are shown must be
from Spain or from other countries in Europe. American culture is a part of Spanish life now. It’s certain that many things from America are as much a part of people’s lives as Spanish things. For example, Coca Cola is as familiar to everybody as any typical Spanish product. I’ve known about Coca Cola for my whole life. However, it’s different with Western fast food. For example, I don’t think McDonald’s is as successful in Spain as it is in other countries. In my opinion, one of the reasons may be the lifestyle of the Spanish people. The Spanish people normally eat at home. On the other hand, maybe McDonald’s hamburgers will eventually replace the famous Spanish tapas. It’s true that in every city in Spain you can find a McDonald’s, and it is more popular among the Spanish children than among the adults. In any case, it’s obvious that American culture is becoming more and more a part of our lives every day. 59. From the first paragraph we can know that ____. A. the influence of America on Spain can be found everywhere B. most Spanish people don’t like to listen to their own music C. fast food spreads from Spain to the United States D. some Spanish actors go to America to improve their acting skills 60. What plays an important part in the spreading of American culture in Spain? A. American novels. B. Hollywood movies. C. McDonald’s. D. American music. 61. Why did the government set some rules for the films shown in Spain? A. To protect foreign culture in Spain. B. To earn more money from Spanish films. C. To limit the number of foreign movies. D. To unite the European Community. 62. What do you think Spanish tapas might be (in the last paragraph)? A. The name of a drink. B. The name of a restaurant. C. A clothing brand. D. A certain kind of food. D Do you like seahorses? What do you know about them? The seahorse is actually not a horse but a fish, and much smaller than any regular horse. In general, a seahorse is about an inch long. It is a beautiful fish that likes warm waters, swims upright (直立的), and looks a little like a chess piece. Seahorses are an unusual kind of animal because the males (雄性) give birth to babies. Mating (交配) takes place in cooler waters on spring and summer nights with a full moon. The females (雌性) put their eggs into the bodies of the males, and the males give birth to baby seahorses. The seahorse can use each eye separately, which allows it to search for food without moving the rest of its body. Seahorses situate themselves near deep, fast-running channels rich in plankton, a kind of life on which they feed. They can catch food from an inch and a half away. Seahorses can change from gray or black to yellow or purple within seconds to fit in with their surroundings, and in this way escape from most of their enemies. One of the surprising facts about seahorses for most people is that they are
vertebrates (脊椎动物). They can turn and curl freely, and like to swim in pairs connected by their tails. Their tails are powerful, and they can use them to grasp the surrounding seaweed (海藻) to keep themselves from being swept away. So seahorses are usually found in warm water filled with seaweed. Now that you know all these facts about seahorses, don’t you find them more interesting? 63. We can learn from the passage that seahorses _______. A. are beautiful, and live on seaweed B. are as big as regular horses C. live near deep channels D. like to be alone 64. The third paragraph tells us that _______. A. male seahorses lay eggs B. seahorses mate in spring or autumn C. male seahorses give birth to babies D. seahorses mate in warmer waters at night 65. Which of the following protects seahorses from being eaten by their enemies? A. Their fast speed of swimming. B. Their ability to change colors. C. Their unique eyes. D. Their strong tails. 66. Which of the following can replace the underlined word “grasp”? A. Eat. B. Hold. C. Make. D. Balance. E When Joan gave birth to the first boy in her family in three generations, she and her husband were overjoyed. So were her parents. Joan expected her elder sister, Sally, to be just as delighted as them. Joan had always admired Sally--the beauty and the star of the family--and felt happy about her achievements. But since the baby’s arrival, the sisters have become distant. Joan feels hurt for Sally seems completely uninterested in her baby. Sally, who has no children, claims that her younger sister “acts as if no one ever had a baby before”. Neither Sally nor Joan understands that the real cause of the current coldness is that their family roles have suddenly changed to the opposite. Finally Joan seems to be better than her elder sister--and Sally doesn’t like it! Their distance may be temporary(暂时的) but it shows that childhood competition doesn’t fade easily as ages grow. It can remain powerful in relationships throughout life. In a study of the University of Cincinnati, 65 men and women between ages 25 and 93 were asked how they felt about their brothers and sisters. Nearly 75 percent admitted having hidden competitive feelings. In a few cases, these emotions were so strong as to have affected their entire lives. Many adult brothers and sisters are close, supportive--yet still tend to compete. Two brothers I know turn into killers when on opposite sides of a tennis net. Off the court, they are the best of friends. My own younger sister can’t wait to tell me when I’ve put on weight. However, she’s a terrible cook and that pleases me; I laugh at her when she comes to dinner. Happily, despite these small failings, we
have been an important resource for each other. In between the very competitive and the generally supportive children lie those who say that no friendship should survive. Some brothers and sisters stay at arm’s length, but never give up competition completely. Why do these puzzling, unproductive, often painful relationships continue to exist? 67. When Joan’s son was born, Sally A. felt very happy a lot 68. What happens to children’s desire( 渴望 ) to compete with their brothers and sisters? ________ A. It sometimes will disappear when they grow up. B. It will never disappear throughout life. C. It will improve their relationships when they grow up. D. It will never harm their relationships when they grow up. 69. Why does the author’s sister often tell her when she’s put on weight? __________ A. Because she wants the author to go on a diet. B. Because she wants the author to stop calling her a bad cook. C. Because she wants to make fun of the author’s weight. D. Because she wants to be honest with the author. 70. The underlined sentence means that although some brothers and sisters A. live near each other, they still have competitions B. live away from each other, they stop their competitions C. live together, they often think of ending their competitions D. live within a big family, they often try to end their competitions . . C. moved away D. admired her
B. felt not delighted
