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(ABCD中,选出最佳选项,并在答题卡上将该项涂黑。)   

A

The easy way out isn’t always the easiest. I learned that lesson when I decided to treat Doug, my husband of one month, to a special meal. I glanced through my cook book and chose a menu which included homemade bread. Knowing the bread would take time. I started on it as soon as Doug left for work. As I was not experienced in cooking, I thought if a dozen was good, two dozen would be better, so I doubled everything. As Doug loved oranges, I also opened a can of orange and poured it all into the bowl. Soon there was a sticky dough covered with ugly yellowish marks. Realizing I had been defeated, I put the dough in the rubbish bin outside so I wouldn’t have to face Doug laughing at my work. I went on preparing the rest of the meal, and, when Doug got home, we sat down to Cornish chicken with rice. He tried to enjoy the meal but seemed disturbed. Twice he got up and went outside, saying he thought he heard a noise. The third time he left, I went to the windows to see what he was doing. Looking out, I saw Doug standing about three feet from the rubbish bin, holding the lid up with a stick and looking into the container. When I came out of the house, he dropped the stick and explained that there was something alive in our rubbish bin. Picking up the stick again, he held the lid up enough for me to see. I felt cold. But I stepped closer and looked harder. Without doubt it was my work. The hot sun had caused the dough to double in size and the fermenting yeast(酵母) made the surface shake and sigh as though it were breathing. I had to admit what the living thing was and why it was there. I don’t know who was more embarrassed by the whole thing—Doug or me.

56The writer’s purpose in writing this story is ________.

A. to tell an interesting experience        

B. to show the easiest way out of a difficulty

C. to describe the trouble facing a newly married woman

D. to explain the difficulty of learning to cook from books

57Why did the woman’s attempt at making the bread turn out to be unsuccessful?

A. The canned orange had gone bad.      

B. She didn’t use the right kind of flour.

C. The cookbook was hard to understand.        

D. She did not follow the directions closely.

58Why did the woman put the dough in the rubbish bin?

A. She didn’t see the use of keeping it.     B. She meant to joke with her husband.

C. She didn’t want her husband to see it.          D. She hoped it would soon dry in the sun.

59What made the dough in the bin looks frightening?

A. The rising and falling movement.            B. The strange-looking marks.

C. Its shape.                                    D. Its size.

60When Doug went out the third time, the woman looked out of the window because she was

________.

A. surprised at his being interested in the bin

B. afraid that he would discover her secret

C. unhappy that he didn’t enjoy the meal    

D. curious to know what disturbed him

B

My father's reaction to the bank building at 43rd Street and Fifth Avenue in New York city was immediate and definite: "You won't catch me putting my money in there!" he declared, "Not in that glass box !"

Of course, my father is a gentleman of the old school, a member of the generation to whom a good deal of modern architecture is upsetting, but I am convinced that his negative response was not so much to the architecture as to a violation of his concept of the nature of money .

In his generation money was thought of as a real commodity (实物)that could be carried, or stolen. Consequently, to attract the custom of a sensible man, a bank had to have heavy walls, barred windows, and bronze(青铜)doors, to affirm the fact, however untrue, that money would be safe inside. If a building's design made it appear impenetrable(难以渗透的), the institution(公共机构, 协会, 制度)was necessarily reliable, and the meaning of the heavy wall as an architecture symbol dwelt in the prevailing attitude toward money.

But the attitude toward money has, of course, changed. Excepting pocket money, cash of any kind is now rarely used; money as a tangible(切实,实在)commodity has largely been replaced by credit. A deficit (赤字) economy, accompanied by huge expansion, has led us to think of money as product of the creative imagination. The banker no longer offers us a safe: he offers us a service in which the most valuable element is the creativity for the invention of large numbers. It is in no way surprising, in view of this change in attitude, that we are witnessing the disappearance of the heavy-walled bank.

Just as the older bank emphasized its strength, this bank by its architecture boasts of imaginative powers. From this point of view it is hard to say where architecture ends and human assertion (人们的说法)begins.

61The main idea of this passage is that ________.

Amoney is not as valuable as it was in the past

Bthe architectural style of the older bank is superior to that of the modern bank

Cchanges have taken place in both the appearance and the concept of banks

Dprejudice makes the older generation think that the modern bank is unreliable

62How do the older generation and the younger one think about money?

AThe former thinks more of money than the latter.

BThe younger generation values money more than the older generation.

CBoth generations rely on the imaginative power of bankers to make money.

DTo the former money is a real commodity but to the latter it is a means to produce more money.

63According to this passage, a modern banker should be _____.

Aimaginative and creative             Breliable and powerful

Csensible and impenetrable                     Dambitious and friendly

64It can be inferred from the passage that the author's attitude towards the new trend in banking is ______. 

Acautious         Bregretful           Cpositive           Dhostile(敌意的)

65Cash is rarely used nowadays because _______.

A. it is no longer needed                  B. it is no longer useful

C. it is often replaced by credit cards        D.credit cards took place.

C

Against the supposition(假设)that forest fires in Alaska, Canada and Siberia warm the climate, scientists have discovered that cooling may occur in areas where burnt trees allow more snow to mirror more sunlight into space.

       This finding suggests that taking steps to prevent northern forest to limit the release of greenhouse gases may warm the climate in northern regions. Usually large fires destroyed forests in these areas over the past decade. Scientists predict that with climate warming, fires may occur more frequently over next several centuries as a result of a longer fire season. Sunlight taken in by the earth tends to cause warming, while heat mirrored back into space tends to cause cooling.

       This is the first study to analyze all aspects of how northern fires influence climate. Earlier studies by other scientists have suggested that fire in northern regions speed up climate warming because greenhouse gases from burning trees and plants are released into the atmosphere and thus trap heat.

       Scientists found that right after the fire, large amounts of greenhouse gases entered the atmosphere and caused warming. Ozone(臭氧)levels increased, and ash from the fire fell on far-off sea ice, darkening the surface and causing more radiation from the sun to be taken in. The following spring, however, the land within the area of the fire was brighter than before the fire, because fewer trees covered the ground. Snow on the ground mirrored more sunlight back into space, leading to cooling.

       “We need to find out all possible ways to reduce the growth of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere.” Scientists tracked the change in amount of radiation entering and leaving the climate system as a result of the fire, and found a measurement closely related to the global air temperature. Typically, fire in northern regions occurs in the same area every 80 to 150 years. Scientists, however, found that when fire occurs more frequently, more radiation is lost from the earth and cooling results. Specifically, they determined when fire returns 20 years earlier than predicated, 0.5 watts per square meter of area burned are soaked up by the earth from greenhouse gases, but 0.9 watts per square meter will be sent back into space. The net effect is cooling. Watts are used to measure the rate at which energy is gained or lost from the earth.

66According to the new findings, taking steps to prevent northern forest fires may _______.

       A. result in a warming climate

       B. cause the forest fires to occur more frequently

       C. lead to a longer fire season

       D. protect the forests and the environment there

67The following are all the immediate effects after a forest fire EXCEPT _________.

       A. large amounts of greenhouse gases enter the atmosphere

       B. the levels of ozone which is a type of oxygen increase

       C. snow on the ground mirrors more sunlight back into space

       D. ashes from the fire fall on the ice surface and take in more radiation from the sun

68Earlier studies about northern forest fires _________.

       A. analyze all aspects of how northern fires influence climate

       B. indicate that forest fires will pollute the atmosphere

       C. suggest that people should take measures to protect environment

       D. suggest that the fires will speed up climate warming.

69The underlined part “soaked up” in the last paragraph most probably means ________.

       A. released              B. absorbed            C. created               D. distributed

70From the passage we can draw a conclusion that forest fires in Alaska, Canada and Siberia may __________.

       A. warm the climate as the supposition goes

       B. allow more snow to reflect more sunlight into space and thus cool the climate

       C. destroy large areas of forests and pollute the far-off sea ice

       D. help to gain more energy rather than release more energy

阅读下面短文,并根据要求完成文章后的题目。

 [1] I really don’t need anything for Christmas. I had the best gift ever last night, watching my two sons reading their books before bedtime.They were each in different rooms, engrossed in their pages, with no TV, music, or anything else in the background. I will take this small gift any time, any day, any season.

[2] Like anyone else, I had lots of other interests, but once I discovered I was pretty much hooked on reading , I read everything----books, magazines, newspapers, the back of cereal boxes or orange juice cartons if there was nothing else on the table at the moment. I have my parents to thank in large part for the love of reading. They were always working on something.

[3] With few exceptions, today’s kids are up against far more distractions (令人分心的事) than most of us ever were, and it is so EASY for them to become disengaged in reading. There’s the PlayStation or the Xbox. There’s the iPod. There’s the internet. There’s texting. And there’s peer pressure. If the coolest kid in the class thinks reading a book is the most god-awful thing .......

[4] I’ve told my sons that with reading come information, knowledge, and understanding, _____ will help them at every stage in their lives, now and forever. However, we’ve gotta say it and model it. It’s not enough for the teachers to say it and require it, or for us to leave it to them. We have to, as well.

[5] Of course we have to use and acknowledge the power of new technologies in our lives. But we need to keep the reading going too. There’s a place and a need for everything. So it’s an amazing thing. It’s not Christmas yet and I already have my gift.( My husband’s comment when I told him this: “ Does this mean I can return all of yours?”)

高三年级第二次月考英语参考答案

...........As you know, we didn’t learn well enough in the first two years, so please slow down a bit and make sure we have already mastered something and then figure out the important points. Besides, we need a little more time to think for ourselves. As for those important points which also make us confused,  would you please give us more practice in case we forget? Meanwhile, we need badly instructions on learning strategies.

By the way, we often feel frustrated, which has a bad effect on our study. We should appreciate it if you can give us some encouragement and be concerned more about our psychological problems before examinations now and then.
