A farmer，Mr. Tan，said that the storm began early in the morning and lasted for over an hour. “I was eating with my wife and children，”he said，“When we heard a loud noise. A few minutes later our house fell down on top of us. We tried our best to climb out but then I saw that one of my children was missing. I went back inside and found him，safe but very frightened.”
Mrs. Woo Mei Fong said that her husband had just left for work when she felt that her house was moving. She ran outside at once with her children. “There was no time to take anything，”she said，“A few minutes later，the roof came down.” Soldiers helped to take people out of the flooded area and the welfare department （ 福利机构） brought them food，clothes and shelter. 21.

B Form July to October every year, about a quarter of the world’s blue whales feed in the Pacific Ocean off the coast of California. But the whales now face a major threat in their favorite feeding area. Lots of ships carrying cargo sail in the same area at the same time. All too often, a ship will hit a whale. According to a new study, this problem has become a serious threat to the whole population of the world’s blue whales. Ther e are only about 10,000 of the creatures in the world. Blue whales are the largest known animals ever to live on Earth. But if hit by a container(集装 箱) ship, a blue whale will likely die from its injuries. In 2007 alone, large ships killed five blue whales in the waters off San Francisco and Los Angeles, California. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) says that because there are so few whales already, losing three to five from the California whale population every year is a great loss. “The population of blue whales in this part of the Pacific is about 2,500,” says Sean Hastings, a member of NOAA. “So every whale counts toward this population moving off the endangered-species list.” Now, one very simple program is already under way in the Santa Barbara Channel, a waterway that separates mainland California from the nearby Channel Islands. The Channel Islands National Marine Sanctuary has asked large container ships passing through the area to slow down. Sailing slower will allow the ship’s members more time to look at detection(探测) equipment and – more important – to change course before hitting a whale. Several of the world’s largest shipping lines are set to take part in the new program. For every ship that passes through the Santa Barbara Channel at or below the reduced speed of 12 knots(a measure of speed in water), the company that owns the ship will be paid $2,500. 25．The underlined part “this problem” in Paragraph 2 refers to the fact that . A．whales are hit by ships B．whales lose their way C．whales travel too far D．whales can’t find enough food 26．What can we learn about blue whales? A．They like following container ships. B．They mainly live in the pacific Ocean. C．They are in danger of disappearing. D．They were once large in number.
27．The purpose of the simple program mentioned in Paragraph 6 is to . A．ship the whales B．guide the whales C．look for the whales D．protect the whales 28．The text is most probably . A．a travel guide B．a newspaper report C．an advertisement D．a research paper C Abbie Conant, a musician living in Italy, was looking to move on from playing the trombone(长号) for the Royal Opera of Turin. She wrote a lot of letters, but only got one reply. It was from the Munich Philharmonic Orchestra(慕尼黑爱乐乐团). The audition(试音) in June 1980 took place in a museum, since the orchestra’s cultural center was unavailable. There were over 30 players and each one played their piece behind a screen, meaning the selection committee(评选委员会) could only hear them play. Conant played Ferdinand David’s Konzertino for Trombone, a standard piece for auditions. Being a perfectionist, Conant was angry with herself for missing a note in the piece, and was seen packing the trombone away soon after the audition in preparation to leave. But the selection committee knew immediately that Conant was the best of all the people they’d heard that day. They asked the other players to leave, and someone went to find Conant and told her the good news. However, events took an unexpected turn: the selection committee were waiting, sure they were going to be introduced to Mr. Conant, when in walked a woman! The whole idea of a woman-lead trombonist went against tradition. But Conant passed the other two auditions. She joined the orchestra and played her first year successfully. But then she found out that she would be playing second trombone, basically because she was a woman. Conant took the orchestra to court(法庭). Though the orchestra said that Abbie Conant was not strong enough to play first trombone, she won. It took her years to prove herself in the eyes of the law, but she did it. The orchestra then refused to pay Conant the same as men players, so she took them to court again. She knew she would win, and the result? She did. 29．Abbie Conant wrote those letters to . A．leave Italy B．find a better job C．show her skills D．improve her living 30．What can we learn about the audition from Paragraph 2? A．It was held in the orchestra’s cultural center. B．All players were highly skill ed musicians. C．The players could choose their pieces freely. D．The selection team couldn’t see the players. 31．Conant chose to leave after the first round of auditions because . A．she was dissatisfied with her performance B．she played worse than the other players C．she had no interest in the orche stra D．she wanted to prepare for the rest of the auditions 32．Why did Conant take the orchestra to court twice? A．She didn’t get paid. B．The orchestra refused to accept her. C．She was treated unfairly. D．The orchestra didn’t believe in her ability. D Besides entertainment and beautiful lanterns, another important part of the Lantern Festival, or Yuanxiao Festival is eating small dumpling balls made of glutinous rice flour. We call these balls Yuanxiao or Tangyuan. Obviously, they get the name from the festival itself. It is said that the custom
of eating Yuanxiao originated during the Eastern Jin Dynasty in the fourth century, then became popular during the Tang and Song periods. The fillings inside the dumplings or Yuanxiao are either sweet or salty. Sweet fillings are made of sugar, walnuts, sesame(芝麻), osmanthus flowers(桂花), rose petals, sweetened tangerine(橘子) peel, bean paste, or jujube paste(枣泥). A single ingredient or any combination can be used as the filling. The salty is filled with minced meat(肉末儿), vegetables or a mixture. The way to make Yuanxiao also varies between northern and southern China. The usual method followed in southern provinces is to shape the dough of rice flour into balls, make a hole, insert the filling, then close the hole and smooth out the dumpling by rolling it between your hands. In North China, sweet or nutmeat stuffing is the usual ingredient. The fillings are pressed into hardened cores, dipped lightly in water and rolled in a flat basket containing dry glutinous rice flour. A layer of the flour sticks to the filling, which is then again dipped in water and rolled a second time in the rice flour. And so it goes, like rolling a snowball, until the dumpling is the desired size. The custom of eating Yuanxiao dumplings remains. This tradition encourages both old and new stores to promote their Yuanxiao products. They all try their best to improve the taste and quality of the dumplings to attract more customers. 33. Which of the following is NOT true? A. The custom of eating Yuanxiao dates back to the fourth century. B. Sweet Yuanxiao are usually made in southern China. C. Sugar, rose petals and minced meat are all fillings of Yuanxiao. D. People in northern China usually make Yuanxiao by rolling like a snowball. 34. Which country does the Lantern Festival come from? A. Jin Dynasty B. South Korea C. China D. Tang and Song period 35. Choose the right order of making Tanguan in southern provinces. (1) make a hole and insert the filling (2) roll the dough between your hands (3) shape the dough of rice flour into balls (4) close the hole (5) prepare some rice flour A. (5) (3) (1) (4) (2) B. (3) (5) (1) (2) (4) C. (3) (1) (4) (2) (5) D. (5) (3) (2) (1) (4) 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。 Do you want to be at the top of your class? Add these tips to your life and you should be on your way to being a top student? 36 I cannot stress how important it is to pay attention to what your teacher teaching you. Take part in class discussions if you have something worthwhile to add. Pay attention during class, especially during lectures. Taking notes is important. You don’t need to write down every word your teacher says but write down what he/ she writes on the board, or any special fact you think you might need for a test. 37 This way it will help you learn more effectively by actually thinking about what you are writing. Don’t skip school. You will missing out on stuff. 38 However, you will have more work and you have missed lectures and in-class movies. Also, try not to be late for class. It’s most likely that your teachers won’t appreciate it and you will get yourself behind. 39 If you have an “I don’t care about school or this class” attitude, then teachers will be less willing to help you with problem or offer you extra credit. The same goes for lazy attitude. Have a respectful attitude to the teacher and other students. Try not to laugh when other students make a mistake. Always ask questions. 40 If you don’t understand, ask someone. Read your textbook and notes, and then if that fails, seek help. Ask a teacher, friend, classmate, parent, ect. Get a tutor if you need one. A. Be prepared. B. It is true that you could make up the work.
C. Write in your own words. D. Staying organized will be helpful. E. Pay attention to everything the teacher says. F. There is no shame in needing some help. G. Keep a good attitude toward things. 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；每小题 1. 5 分，满分 30 分） 阅读下面的短文，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。 Life hasn’t always been easy!
