For us, that 37 a white metal cabinet (储藏柜) in our utility room (杂用 间) filled with cans of food. We could 38 eat anything out of the cabinet because ―you never know‖ when a hurricane will come. As a kid, I was 39 about the white cabinet. I thought it was kind of strange to have food in the utility room. But, one look from my mother 40 me from opening the door to glance inside. One year, Channel 4 reported that Hurricane Dora was 41 for the northern part of Florida. Soon the storm got 42 and the wind blew. Then, the tall pine trees started to sway. And,
by ―sway‖, I meant ― 43 over or crash down on anything in their way‖. We were lucky, as the 44 went other directions and didn‘t take our power out. However, when my mother started cooking, the power was out. 45 I figured it was time to crack open that white cabinet. But, Dad thought it was time to 46 up the charcoal grill outside where it was raining and windy. To this day, I never 47 a man‘s love for his grill. Our power came back for a while. So, my mother began cooking everything she could and 48 it away, to the neighbors, to friends without power, to anyone who was 49 up. I was
hoping that the fried chicken was going to find its way to our 50 . But, it didn‘t. And, just as the last of the food was sent out and she began to work on our dinner, yes, we lost our 51 . It was time for 20 minutes‘ eggs on the grill. Oh, the white metal cabinet? No. We never 52 it. We weren‘t ―that bad off‖ as I understand it. And, for years I 53 how bad off we would have to be to eat out of that cabinet. Perhaps it was just the 54 of it, the thought that it was there watching our backs 55 we wanted a can of beans or some potted meat. I don‘t know if that was what was in there.

第三部分 阅读理解（共 15 小题；每小题 2 分，满分 30 分）
请认真阅读下列短文，从短文后各题所给的 A、B、C、D 四个选项中，选出最佳选项， 并在答题卡上将该项涂黑。 A Playa la Audiencia, Manzanillo Playa la Audiencia is one of the most popular beaches in Manzanillo for families and one of the best beach spots along Mexico‘s Pacific coast. Playa la Audiencia is a stunning little beach with a golden shoreline which overlooks the bay and offers great conditions for swimming, diving, and other cool water sports such as jet-skiing and kayaking. If you are a diving enthusiast, you‘ll definitely love spending time in Playa la Audiencia since its waters are shallow, calm and filled with rocks covered with corals. Playa Brujas, Mazatlan Playa Brujas is probably one of the best surfing spots in Mazatlan. Playa Brujas is located 20 minutes‘ drive from the heart of Mazatlan and it‘s a popular spot among local surfers. If you are a surfer looking to hit some waves along the west coast of Mexico, you‘ll find Playa Brujas a very good spot to visit since Brujas possesses satisfactory waves all year round. North Beach, Isla Mujeres North beach is one of the nicest beaches in Isla Mujeres and it‘s one of Mexico‘s finest beaches in the Yucatan Peninsula. North Beach boasts a nice stretch of beach with white-powdery sand, warm turquoise waters and great diving spots. The best bit about North Beach besides its private location is that the beach is just minutes away by boat from Cancun, so you‘re never too far from Cancun‘s tourist attractions such as Wet n‘ Wild Paterpark and Xplor Eco Park, where you can enjoy caving adventures and zip-line rides. Xpu Ha Beach Xpu Ha Beach is located roughly between Tulum and Playa del Carmen and it is a nice spot for relaxing under the sun, walking and horseback riding. Xpu Ha is located along the
stunning Riviera Maya and unlike other beaches along the Mexican Riviera Xpu Ha beach boasts a subtle beach club atmosphere. Xpu Ha Beach isn‘t as busy as Mamita‘s beach club but it still possesses cool beach clubs, a rental shop and a hotel. 56. If someone has appreciation for caving adventures, he or she should go to ________. A. North Beach C. Wet n‘ Wild Paterpark B. Xpu Ha Beach D. Playa Brujas
57. The similarity that the four beaches share is that ________. A. tourists can have some sports C. the waters are shallow B. they have clubs D. they have satisfactory wave
58. Which of the following is true according to the passage? A. Playa Brujas is close to Mazatlan and lies along the east coast of Mexico. B. North Beach is the finest beach in the Yucatan Peninsula for its private location. C. Tourists can rent some equipment at Xpu Ha Beach, which is as busy as others. D. When a couple choose a beach with children, Playa la Audiencia is their best choice. B Parents all struggle to get children to understand that money doesn‘t grow on trees, wanting them to be responsible, work hard and learn to save a few bucks. But these lessons are among the most difficult to teach. Enter KidZania, an internationally praised and truly unique children‘s theme park, that makes life a little easier for parents. KidZania is not a traditional theme park in almost any sense of the word — there are no roller coasters or merry-go-rounds in sight. There are, however, plenty of attractions and activities that will keep children busy, active, engaged and excited all day. What makes it so much fun is that it‘s a kid-sized city — complete with restaurants, banks, grocery stores and hospitals — where the kids get to be adults, doing the things most of us do on any normal day. They start by picking one of nearly 100 ―careers‖ and learning about it. Then, they put on their uniform and are ready to work and earn KidZania dollars (―Kidzos‖). Most activities are universal but some are localized to reflect the distinct flavors and personality of the country and region where the park is located and to keep it real for the kids. Kids get paid for every job they do, which helps them explore the mysteries of managing money. Kidzos in hand, they can spend it or save it. If they run short of money, they‘ll have to find a way to earn some. Each KidZania city is planned in amazing detail, even including real world brands that help
sponsor the city and keep it running. I was a little wary of all the popular corporate logos, but the brands weren‘t pushed at all. They are there to reinforce the ―real city‖ feeling by mixing it with things kids recognize. KidZania employs senior citizens who give the park a homey feel and help put children at ease. Management also employs the disabled, whether blind, deaf or wheelchair-bound. Besides making for a more realistic city, this teaches children about those with different abilities and gives them an opportunity to spend time with people they might otherwise have stared at or treated less than kindly. Socialization is an important part of KidZania, just as it is throughout childhood. The KidZania experience empowers kids, giving them the confidence to be their best selves, and the inspiration to be great global citizens. And it‘s part of what makes KidZania such an amazing place for families and children. 59. KidZania is unique in that ________. A. it has no entertainment facilities B. it includes lots of localized activities C. it offers kids chances to learn through working D. it employs many se niors and disabled people 60. The underlined word ―wary‖ in Paragraph 8 is similar in meaning to ________. A. astonished B. cautious C. delighted D. conscious
61. Children‘s theme park KidZania is set up to ________. A. prepare them to be good citizens in the future B. provide them with a place to have a good time C. make them aware of their parents‘ hardship D. assist them in building a good relationship with parents 62. Which of the following might be the best title of the passage? A. Children do part-time jobs at a theme park B. A theme park pushes kids to be grown-ups C. KidZania theme park makes adults‘ life easier D. Kids get to ?be‘ adults at KidZania theme park C For decades, public health officials have puzzled over a surprising fact about HIV: Only about 10-20 percent of infants who are breastfed by infected mothers catch the virus. Tests show, though, that HIV is indeed present in breast milk, so these children are exposed to the virus multiple times daily for the first several months of their lives.
Now, a group of scientists and doctors from Duke University has figured out why these
babies don‘t get infected. Human breast milk naturally contains a protein called Tenascin C that neutralizes HIV and, in most cases, prevents it from being passed from mother to child. Eventually, they say, the protein could potentially be valuable as an HIV-fighting tool for both infants and adults that are either HIV-positive or at risk of contracting the infection. The research, published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, was inspired by previous work by other researchers showing that, both in tissue cultures (组织培养) and live mice, breast milk from HIV-negativemothers was naturally endowed with HIV-fighting properties. Scientists suggested that a few different proteins in the milk could potentially be responsible, but no one knew which one.
As part of the study, the researchers divided breast milk into smaller fractions (部分) made up of specific proteins via a number of filters (过滤) — separating the proteins by size, electrical charge and other characteristics—and tested which of these fractions, when added to a tissue culture, prevented the cells from being infected by HIV. Eventually, they found that one particular protein was present in all the HIV-resistant fractions but in none of the others: Tenascin C. Tenascin C works by blocking a key protein on HIV‘s envelope that normally ties up to a receptor on a T cell‘s membrane called CCR5. In doing so, Tenascin C prevents HIV from mixing with the T cell and injecting its RNA inside. Still, the researchers say that other natural elements in milk might play a role in fighting HI V as well. ―It‘s clearly not the whole story, because we do have samples that have low amounts of this protein but still have HIV-neutralizing activity,‖ the study‘s lead author Permar says. ―So it may be acting in concert with other antiviral and antimicrobial factors in the milk.‖ Whatever those other factors are, though, the finding vindicates (证明……的正确) recent changes to UN guidelines that recommend even HIV-positive mothers in resource-poor countries should breastfeed, if they‘re taking anti-retroviral drugs to combat their own infection. The next steps, Permar says, are determining which area of Tenascin C is active and whether it can effectively prevent transmission in a live animal. If it works, it could potentially be incorporated (合并) into an HIV drug with broader applications. It‘s even possible that it could someday be adapted to reduce the risk of HIV transmission in adults as well as infants. 63. What is the main idea of Paragraph 1? A. The breast milk from an infected mother doesn‘t contain HIV at all. B. It‘s less likely for infants feeding on infected mothers‘ breast milk to catch HIV. C. The possibilities of infants catching HIV have nothing to do with infected mothers. D. Children breastfed by infected mothers won‘t catch HIV though exposed to it frequently. 64. Why did the researchers divide breast milk into smaller fractions? A. To find out Tenascin C. B. To make up specific proteins.
C. To add them to a tissue culture.
D. To test what prevents cells being infected.
65. Which of the following about Tenascin C is true? A. It has become an effective tool in fighting HIV. B. It was first found by Permar and her research group. C. It can prevent transmission in a live animal effectively. D. It can sometimes prevent mother-to-child transmission of HIV. 66. What can we know about Permar and her research group according to the passage? A. They have found a cure for HIV. B. They have helped change UN guidelines. C. They will do more researches on Tenascin C. D. Their finding is based on their previous work. D He leant down to the pickpocket. The heaving and gasping had stopped, but he was still making a show of his breathlessness. ―That‘s better,‖ Mallon said. ―Can you stand up? Try to stand up. Here,‖ he said, and gripped the pickpocket‘s arm and forced him upright until he saw his face for the first time. As the pickpocket labored for breath, he gazed up at Mallon with his dark eyes. “How could you?” they asked. Mallon might have said, ―Because you tried to steal from me.‖ But he was still conscious of the flush of joy he‘d felt when his blow struck home — when he knew he‘d hurt the man. Where that joy came from he couldn‘t say, but he knew that its roots were deeper than some clumsy failed theft. Fat drops of rain began to patter on the awning (雨篷). ―How are you?‖ Mallon said. ―Can you walk?‖ The pickpocket turned away and leant against the store window with both hands, and his head sank lower as his shoulders rose and fell. A gray-haired woman inside the store rapped on the glass and made a shooing motion. When the pickpocket ignored her, she rapped harder and kept rapping. ―I have to go,‖ Mallon said. ―I‘m sorry.‖ He looked up at the sky. ―I‘m sorry,‖ he said again, and stepped into the rain and walked quickly up the street. One of the Bangladeshi umbrella sellers was working the corner, and Mallon had just paid seven euros when he heard a woman shouting. He didn‘t want to look back but did. It was the woman from the shop, pushing and batting the pickpocket away from the window while he bent down and covered his head like a boxer trying to get through the last seconds of a round. Mallon slipped his wallet back into his jacket pocket and took the umbrella that the Bangladeshi had opened for him.
The pickpocket was out on the sidewalk now, in the rain. The woman stood just under the awning with her arms crossed over her chest. ―Excuse me, madam,‖ Mallon said, coming up to them. ―This man isn‘t well. He needs to rest a moment.‖ ―I know these people,‖ she said. ―Our Romans don‘t want them here.‖ The rain fell in sheets, ran down the pickpocket‘s shiny scalp and face, down his leather jacket. ―Here,‖ Mallon said, and offered him the umbrella, but he only looked at Mallon with his hurt dark eyes and then lowered his head again. Mallon bumped him in the shoulder with the handle of the umbrella. ―Go on — take it!‖ he said. And finally, with a beaten, unwilling look, the pickpocket did. And that was when he saw a taxi round the corner with a light glowing on its roof. Mallon ran out waving his arm and the cab turned sharply to the pavement, sending a lot of water over his shoes. He opened the door but couldn‘t help looking back. The pickpocket had lowered the umbrella to the ground upside down and was leaning on the shaft, head low, neck bared to the sky. ―Wait,‖ Mallon said to the driver. He went back and grabbed the pickpocket‘s sleeve and pulled him to the cab. ―Get in,‖ Mallon said, and took the umbrella and pushed him into the back seat. He leaned inside. ―O.K., where do you live?‖ ―No Gypsies!‖ the driver said. He was twisted around, glaring at the pickpocket. ―Gypsy? Look, he‘s not well. I‘ll pay,‖ Mallon added. The driver shook his head. ―No Gypsies. Get him out,‖ Mallon looked at the driver‘s nameplate: Michele Kadare. ―It‘s the law,‖ he said, ―If you don‘t take us, Signor Kadare, I‘ll report you and you‘ll lose your license. Believe me — I am quite serious.‖ The driver fastened those pale eyes on Mallon and turned and put his hands on the steering wheel. He raised his eyes to the rearview mirror and he and Mallon exchanged stares. ―O.K., Mr. American,‖ he said. ―You pay.‖ 67. What does the underlined sentence in Paragraph 2 indicate? A. Mallon shouldn‘t have saved the pickpocket. B. The pickpocket didn‘t thank Mallon for his offer. C. The pickpocket blamed Mallon for his failure to steal. D. Mallon must have beaten the pickpocket before helping him. 68. Where should the sentence ―He hesitated, then turned back.‖ be placed? A. Between paragraphs 5 and 6. C. Between paragraphs 7 and 8. B. Between paragraphs 6 and 7. D. Between paragraphs 8 and 9.
69. From the attitudes of the woman and the driver towards the pickpocket, we can conclude that ________. A. the Gypsies had a bad reputation in Rome B. the pickpocket frequently stole around the woman‘s store C. everyone was protected by the law in Rome except the Gypsies D. the pickpocket couldn‘t purchase anything in the woman‘s store 70. Which of the following can be inferred from the passage? A. The taxi didn‘t take the pickpocket to his house in the end. B. The pickpocket succeeded in stealing something from Mallon. C. The pickpocket was a little suspicious of Mallon‘s intention to help him. D. The umbrella seller gave an umbrella to Mallon free of charge.
第四部分 任务型阅读(共 10 小题；每小题 1 分，满分 10 分)
请认真阅读下列短文，并根据所读内容在文章后表格中的空格里填入一个最恰当的单 词。 注意：请将答案写在答题卡上相应题号的横线上。每个空格只填一个单词。 You‘ve just graduated from business school and you feel like the world is your oyster, only to find that job offers aren‘t knocking down your door as expected, making MBAs wonder why they‘re not getting hired. This can be disheartening, but as an MBA, you know that perception(洞 察力)is more important than reality. The key to getting hired is an employer‘s perception of you. Many MBA graduates are guilty of unconsciously displaying signs that they are not the best fit for the job. Once you discover what these common mistakes are, you can put your MBA skills to use and strategize how to turn things in your favor and land the job you‘ve been looking for. Employers feel more comfortable hiring MBAs with experience because there is less need for training. Many MBAs mistakenly apply for jobs they are obviously not qualified for or which require more experience than they have, leaving them scratching their heads at why they‘re not getting interviews. Recruiters want MBAs who can prove their ability to increase revenues, decrease costs, and help their business succeed in some way. Show that you can help the company by providing concrete examples of relevant experience. MBAs often have great resumes showing all the right qualifications, but then blow the interview with inappropriate behavior, such as a lack of professional appearance, poor hygiene, or even a bad attitude. It‘s necessary to be on your best behavior, dress appropriately, and not seem cocky, bored, or disinterested in the company. A little enthusiasm won‘t hurt you, especially when it comes to a potential new job. Every business wants to put their most enthusiastic MBAs forward
with important clients and customers, so be sure to show your passion for your work. Another mistake you may be making unknowingly is how you portray yourself on social media. As an MBA, you know how important networking is, and these days, most of it is done online. Don‘t assume that employers aren‘t interested in your online profiles. Many employers now use social netwo rking sites and online searches to check up on potential hires. Inappropriate photos and information, such as annoying material or implications of drinking and drug use are huge red flags to employers. Even discriminatory comments related to race, gender, or religion will leave employers with a bad impression. Make sure to remove any photos, content, or links that can work against you in an employer‘s eyes. Don‘t forget that practice makes perfect when it comes to finding a great MBA job. Earning your MBA was a huge accomplishment, but there‘s always room for improvement. Ask your classmates, peers, family, and even past co-workers or managers for feedback. Show multiple, trusted resources the job posting you‘re interested in, your cover letter and resume. Take constructive criticism on how it can be better. Do mock interviews to help relieve any tension and gain a better idea of how you‘d like to present yourself. With a few minor changes to your resume and the way you interact with others, you‘ll be hearing ―you‘re hired‖ in no time! Title Why MBA graduates are not getting hired Many of you MBA graduates unconsciously display unfavorable signs, and (72) ◇While (73) (71) Commonly-made to bring out the best in yourselves. for jobs, you do not take your qualifications and
experience into cons ideration. ◇You (74) inappropriately, thus losing a good opportunity to

There are several factors behind this phenomenon. First of all, it is very convenient for people to purchase what they want or like with the Internet easily accessible via computers or cellphones. Second, people shopping online have more choices of goods than they do in real shops and are able to save time as well. Third, the relatively low prices on the Internet also account for higher sales online. In my opinion, as the pace of life quickens, it is natural for people to choose online shopping to save time and energy. But when we enjoy the convenience it brings us, we should be careful because sometimes the quality of goods cannot be guaranteed. Furthermore, we‘d better stay rational and just buy what we really need, otherwise it would cause a waste of money and resources. (150 words)

The worst thing you could do in any situation is to criticize anyone. It only creates more hurt and anger and doesn‘t make you feel any better. If you have to get angry at your friend then write it all down. A popular method of getting rid of anger towards another is to write them a letter telling them exactly how you feel. Then burn it.
