  Ten students have stopped complaining about gas prices.Instead,they’re competing in a nationwide contest to redesign the cars.Final competitors were chosen from a field of 60 applicants.

  “The schools were selected to find technology that will help our country reach the needs for energy sources,so we don’t have to depend on other countries to provide fuel,” Pickering said.He is vice chairman of the US House of Reprentatives Energy and Commerce Committee.The teams received $10 000 and a Chevrolet Equinox which would be used as a starting place for modifications.Each team can also get $25 000 in parts and software from GM and other sponsors.The cars will be taken to the GM proving grounds for a national competition.It’s the finale of a three-year competition.

  In the first year,students designed and worked out their plans.“At the end of the first year,our plans for the hybrid were approved and we received our own Chevrolet Equinox to begin construction,” said Amanda McAlpin,leader of the outreach team.

  In the second year,the students’ goal is for their hybrid to exceed the factory Equinox’s fuel efficiency by 50 percent.“Our goal is to place in the top five but increase in the areas we lacked in,” McAlpin said.“If we can maintain this strategy,we should be able to obtain our goal.”

  In the final competition this year,GM technicians would examine the cars to approve the safety and make sure they meet all contest rules.“We would like to be in the top half of each event,but they are all different.Every team has their own strategy to win,” said a computer engineering major.

  “By hosting the competition,GM really gets the cream of the crop from the top engineering schools across the country,” McAlpin said.“Many of our recent graduates who have worked on the car have received jobs with GM.” And Pickering agreed,“Their brainpower will give us firepower and horsepower for the future.”

  1.How long does the contest last?

  A.One year. B.Two years.

  C.Three years. D.Four years.

  2.What does the underlined word “modifications” in the second paragraph mean? B.changes

  C.approval D.examination

  3.What’s the real purpose for GM to sponsor this contest?

  A.To reduce the consumption of fuels.

  B.To sell its Chevrolet Equinox.

  C.To make advertisements.

  D.To find excellent graduates and employ them.

  4.Which of the following can be the best title for this passage?

  A.Students Building Better Hybrid

  B.A Competition for Redesigning Cars

  C.An Energy-saving Competition

  D.GM and the Redesigned Cars

  When she looked ahead,Florence Chadwick saw nothing but a solid wall of fog.Her body was numb .She had been swimming for nearly sixteen hours.Already she was the first woman to swim the English Channel in both directions.Now,at age 34,her goal was to become the first woman to swim from Catalina Island to the California coast.

  On that fourth morning of July in 1952,the sea was like an ice bath and the fog was so dense that she could hardly see her support boats.Sharks cruised toward her lone figure,only to be driven away by rifle shots.Against the frigid grip of the sea,she struggled on—hour after hour—while millions watched on national television.

  Alongside Florence in one of the boats,her mother and her trainer offered encouragement.They told her it wasn’t much farther.But all she could see was fog.They urged her not to quit.She never had...until then.With only a half mile to go,she asked to be pulled out.

  Still thawing her chilled body several hours later,she told a reporter,“Look,I’m not excusing myself,but if I could have seen land I might have made it.” It was not tiredness or even the cold water that defeated her.It was the fog.She was unable to see her goal.

  Two months later,she tried again.This time,despite the same dense fog,she swam with her faith intact and her goal clearly pictured in her mind.She knew that somewhere behind that fog was land and this time she made it!Florence Chadwick became the first woman to swim the Catalina Channel,eclipsing the men’s record by two hours!

  5.Why didn’t Florence swim across the Catalina Channel for the first time?

  A.Because she was too tired to go on swimming.

  B.Because the fog was so thick that she lost heart at the sea.

  C.Because she couldn’t see her goal:the land.

  D.Because the sea water too cold to bear.

  6.What does “She never had...” mean?

  A.She had never been so desperate.

  B.She had never thought of giving it up.

  C.She had never seen such thick fog.

  D.She had never swum across the strait before.

  7.Which of the following is NOT true?

  A.Florence Chadwick spent less time to swim across the Catalina Channel than any man.

  B.Florence Chadwick succeeded in swimming across the Catalina Channel in September,1952.

  C.People had to use guns to drive away some flesh-eating fish in the sea.

  D.No women but Florence Chadwick were able to swim across the English Channel in both directions.

  8.Which of the following is the best title?

  A.Keep Your Goals in Sight

  B.Swim Across the Catalina Channel

  C.The Fog Defeated Her

  D.Set a Goal for Yourself

  答案:5.C 由第四段“but if I could have seen land I might have made it.”可知答案。

  6.B 推理判断题。由前一句“They urged her not to quit”可推知答案。

  7.D 海峡名称有误。

  8.A 主旨大意题。纵观全文可知:只有制定了切实可行的目标,而且能预见到成功,人们才不会放弃。


  John Hunter had three advantages.He had a brother who was a doctor and he thus able to learn about diseases and their effects.His natural curiosity led him to observe and study the lives of wild animals in the countryside and he had strong and skillful hands,so essential to a surgeon.In fact he became in a short time so famous that he was asked to lecture,but John preferred the practical work of the surgeon.

  Soon after becoming a surgeon Hunter joined the army.He learnt a great deal from his experience of dealing with soldiers’ wounds.In particular,he studied how to prevent a wounded man from bleeding too much,learning thereby how the nerve system functioned in the bodies of animals and humans.But there were many things he did not know about and which could only be learnt by dissection.And this posed a problem.

  The Christian church whose authority was complete on many matters opposed on dissection.Cutting up dead animals to find out about their organs,and how these functioned was thought a disgusting thing to do,and to cut up a human body,even though dead,was thought to be evil.Surgeons had to pay grave diggers to steal bodies for dissection.Hunter once paid $7000 for the body of an eight-foot Irishman whose skeleton can still be seen in the Royal College of surgeon’s museum.To be a surgeon was thought so inferior an occupation that many operations were carried out by barbers.

  But Hunter continued with his experiments,at the time learning more about how our bodies worked,and he found new ways of operating on people so as to save both their limbs and their lives.If a man was brought to him with a bad tumor on his leg,Hunter did not,as most surgeons would have done,cut off his leg,but tried first to remove the tumor and treat the leg so that the leg might be saved.

  9._________ we think is the most important of John Hunter’s three advantages.

  A.His brother’s occupation

  B.A natural curiosity

  C.Lived in the country

  D.Strong and skillful hands

  10.From the passage we guess that a barber was _________.

  A.looked down upon at that time

  B.looked up to at that time

  C.regarded as equal to other occupations

  D.not permitted to carry out operations

  11.The word “dissection” from the context most nearly means ___________.

  A.cutting something up into different parts under study

  B.putting different parts of something together to cure the patient

  C.operating on somebody without medical instruments

  D.stealing dead bodies from graves to cut into pieces

  12.From the last paragraph we can conclude that __________.

  A.Hunter continued with his experiments

  B.Hunter was learning more about how out bodies worked

  C.Hunter found new ways of operations

  D.Hunter was very conscientious and responsible

  答案:9.D 从第一段中的“he had strong and skillful hands,so essential to a surgeon.”可知。

  10.A 第三段最后一句的意思是“人们认为外科医生的职业非常低贱,因此很多手术都是由理发师来完成的”。look down upon“轻视,看不起”。

  11.A 从第三段第二句中的“Cutting up dead animals to find out about their organs,and how these functioned”可推断出“dissection”的意思。

  12.D 从最后一句可知,Hunter是一位既敬业又负责的医生。

  At the age of forty-five,my usually well ordered life became filled with changes.After working for a major financial institution,a major bank merger resulted in the loss of over one hundred jobs,mine being one of them.

  My once secure life was nowhere to be found.My motto has always been “change is good,change is progress”,but when it affected my livelihood,I had to correct it to “accept change and make the most of it”.From the beginning,I tried to refuse to become sad or bitter:instead,I eagerly look forward to doing something new and different.

  Having a clear attitude made all the difference in the way I came to realize the future.First,I decided to return to college and get a college diploma,many years later than I should have.Doing all this at my age took more than a little courage.Not being a graduate had never influenced my career with the bank,but now it was a personal goal I longed to achieve.With a little anxiety and a lot of determination,I registered for evening classes,and became an adult student.

  Oral presentations were often required for one class.I remember thinking that if I had known this beforehand,I would have taken something else to achieve my required goal. By nature,I am an individual of few words,and speaking in front of people terrified me.As I stood in front of the other adults with whom I shared a common goal,my knees were visibly knocking,and my heartbeat can almost be heard.Somehow,I found my voice and lessened my presentation.The next time it was easier,and soon,I was starting to enjoy it a little.Later in the year,I even willingly interviewed a local reporter for an English assignment,much to the surprise of my teacher.My confidence level flew up.Suddenly I felt like I could do anything.

  Is there life after banking?You bet there is.

  The loss of my job was responsible for some practical changes in my life.As I think of the meaning of my motto,“change is good,change is progress”,I realize that I have accepted the change,and am making the most of it.

  And,I have only just begun.The best is yet to come.

  1.What did the writer think of when he lost his job?


  2.Why did he decide to return to college and get a college diploma?


  3.Please translate the underlined sentence in Paragraph 4 into Chinese.


  4.What does the writer mean by saying “the loss of my job was responsible for some practical changes in my life.”?


  5.What’s the writer’s attitude toward life now?How do you know it?


  答案:1.He thought of correcting his motto from “change is good,change is progress” to “accept change and make the most of it”.

  2.Because it was a personal goal he longed to achieve and he could find a better job with a college diploma.


  4.He realized that he had accepted the change,and was making the most of it.

  5.He is optimistic now.The writer says at the end of passage:“I have only just begun.The best is yet to come.”



  “Poor but honest.” “The deserving poor.” These words always come to my mind  1  I think of “the poor”.But I also think of people who,perhaps through alcohol or drugs,have ruined not only their own lives but also the lives of others in order to give way to their own pleasure.Perhaps alcoholism and drug addiction really are “diseases” as many people say,but my own feeling- based,of course,not  2  any serious study—is that most alcoholics and drug addicts belong to the “undeserving poor”.And that is largely  3  I don’t give spare change to beggars.

  But surely among the street people there are also some who can rightly be called “deserving”.Deserving what?My spare change?Or simply the government’s assistance?It happens that I have been brought up to believe that it is  4  to make contributions to charity ,but if I give some change to a beggar,am I making a contribution to charity and thereby helping someone,or,am I perhaps simply  5  someone not to get help?Or,maybe even worse,am I supporting a cheat?

  If one believes in the value of private charity,one can either give to needy people or to charitable organizations.In giving to a beggar one may indeed be helping a person who badly needs help,but one cannot be certain that one is giving to a needy person.In giving to  6  organization,on the other hand,one can feel that one’s money is likely  7  wisely.True,facing a beggar one may feel that this particular unfortunate person needs help at this moment—a cup of coffee or a sandwich—and the need will not be met unless I put my hand in my pocket right now.But I have come to think that the beggars whom I meet can get along without my  8  change,and indeed perhaps they are actually better off for not having money to buy alcohol or drugs.

  I know  9  about these beggars,but it’s my impression that they simply prefer __10  to working.I am not generalizing about street people.I am talking about the people whom I actually meet.That’s why I do not give “spare change” and I don’t think I will in the future.

  答案:1.when 2.on 3.why 4.proper 5.encouraging  be used 8.spare 9.nothing 10.begging
