It’s not unusual for parents to stay with sick children round the clock. But the floor nurses noticed something special about Kathy. She was always smiling and  36 , even on days when Michael was very ill or received  37  news about blood counts. “It was never about Kathy or the  38  she was making,” says one of Michael’s nurses. “She never let Michael see how hard this was on her.”

第三部分  阅读理解(15小题;每小题2分,满分30)

A

Getting up before sunrise to queue for a ticket or paying extra money to guarantee entrance may sound shocking, but for many visitors that is unimportant compared to the excitement of visiting the China Pavilion in the Expo Garden.

Patriotic pride is not the only thing appealing about the China Pavilion. To visitors coming from all comers of China, the pavilion offers an opportunity to know their country and what kind of lives people in China are living.

Dong Xihua, a farmer from Southwest China’s Guizhou province, came to the China Pavilion with a travel group which guaranteed everyone an opportunity to visit the pavilion.

“I think in the China Pavilion I will see what modem life is really about,” Dong said. “Some fellow villagers told me that modem life is eating toast for breakfast and driving cars to work, but I don’t think so.”

“Exhibitions in other countries are all about other people’s lives, while the China Pavilion is about our Chinese people’s lives,” he said.

Dong said he wants to see the most advanced modern lifestyle in China, even if he cannot live that way in a remote village.

He has brought along his 8-year-old grandson, who wishes to see the USA Pavilion the most.

“I told the boy that we visit the China Pavilion first, other pavilions next,” Dong said. “Visiting the China Pavilion is all about understanding who we are and how we are supposed to carps’ on traditions and develop traditions.”

Despite actions against illegal ticket dealers, reservation tickets are often traded outside the China Pavilion. The 50,000 reservation tickets run out within just five minutes every morning.

Even drink stalls (饮料摊) outside the China Pavilion are more crowded than stands in other areas.

“I sometimes act as a volunteer directing visitors to find their queues and answer their questions about the China Pavilion, such as whether the chariots (战车) from the Qin Dynasty (221-206 BC) displayed are original,” said Charlie Zhang, a drink seller. “Sometimes I have to drink five bottles of water every day to keep my voice.”

56. Dong Xihua wants to see the China Pavilion first probably because ______.

A. entering the China Pavilion is the most difficult

B. the China Pavilion is the most interesting one

   C. he wants to see what Chinese modern life is really about

   D. the China Pavilion offers an opportunity to learn Chinese history

57. How do Chinese people feel when visiting the China Pavilion according to the text?

   A. Satisfied.                       B. Annoyed.            C. Tired.                         D. Proud.

58. Where does the text probably come from?

   A. An ad for tourism.               B. A newspaper.                    C. A science report.               D. A novel.

B

Antonio learned a man his mother had trusted and loved had infected her. By the time she got sick, tests revealed the virus had developed into AIDS. She was alive, though, when her son graduated and returned home in May. Two months later she was admitted to the hospital.

Her death would divide the family apart. Antonio could escape, but only if he left behind his sisters, Shronda, 15, Keyera, 13, and his 14-year-old twin brothers, Torrian and Corrian.

Aunts and uncles lived nearby. Others were out of state. But none offered to care for the kids. Then he got this crazy idea. What if he gained legal right to take care of them? He’d never heard of such a thing, but why not? He talked it over with friends. Some admired his determination. Others said if he had any sense he’d run and not look back. He knew his brothers and sisters would be a burden. He’d have to postpone any thought of a better life for eight years until his baby sister turned 21. A home in a nice neighborhood? Forget it. Law school? Out. He figured he could get some government assistance, but he had no job and no way to support himself and four children.

Maybe it would be better for everyone if the family split up. They could all start clean. The choice was clear --- abandon them, or his dreams. He prayed he’d do the right thing.

A Legal Aid lawyer helped him prepare for court. She asked questions and filled out paperwork. Antonio was in her office the day in August 2003, just a year after his mother had told him the news, when a hospital nurse called. Dorothea had died.

Hours later he gathered his brothers and sisters in the living room and talked frankly about the future. “We have to be strong,” he said through tears. “It’s not the end of the world because Mom’s gone. We’re still a family, still going on, no matter what. We have to be here for each other.”

A week after the funeral, after mourners stopped bringing meals to the house, Antonio was on his own. He waited for a court date, hoping that the judge wouldn’t think he was a fool, but a man who wanted to be a father figure the best and knew how.

At the hearing, the judge had Antonio and his brothers and sisters stand. “You look young,” she told Antonio. “How old are you?”

“Twenty-three,” he answered.

“This is a big responsibility,” the judge said. “Most men might not take care of their own child, and you come in here to get legal responsibility of your brothers and sisters.”

The judge studied the paperwork provided by Legal Aid.

“I respect you,” the judge told him, before turning her attention to his brothers and sisters. “Do you want to stay with him?”

“Yes,” they answered.

Five minutes later the heating ended. Antonio signed papers and drove his family home to start a new life.

59. Which of the following about Antonio is true according to the passage?

A. He would probably live an easy life without taking care of his four brothers and sisters.

B. His mother got infected with AIDS from a man she loved and died at a very young age.

C. Some friends praised him for his decision while others advised him to seek his own dreams.

D. All his brothers and sisters would die of starvation if he didn’t take the responsibilities.

60. Antonio would do the following afterwards EXCEPT ______.

A. getting government assistance                 B. getting a job to earn money

C. finding ways to support the family                       D. turning to his aunts and uncles

61. Antonia could start thinking of his own better life and dream when he was ______.

      A. 25.                 B. 27.                C. 29.                D. 31.

62. When the judge said, “..., and you come in here to get legal responsibility of your brothers and sisters”, she ______.

A. admired Antonio’s great courage and determination  

   B. doubted whether Antonio really wanted to take responsibilities

   C. would try to refuse Antonio’s request of taking responsibilities

   D. wanted Antonio to present his legal paperwork

C

Most smart shoppers keep an eye on supermarket prices and can often spot when they rise by just a few pence.

In the case of Tesco’s, however, data analyzed by Financial Mail suggests that a rise in prices is not uncommon.

Interestingly, however, the study suggests that if customers stop buying once the price of an item is increased, the country’s biggest supermarket will often respond rapidly to drop the cost again.

During the last week in September the price of Tesco’s Value Chicken Curry increased from 48 pence to 63 pence before falling again to the original price last week.

Similar patterns were observed for Value Meatballs In Tomato Sauce and Value Sliced Peaches In Syrup.

However, during the same period the prices of Orange Marmalade, Mixed Fruit Jam and Lemon Curd, all in the Value range, increased --- by as much as 50% --- and stayed there.

In other cases observed over the past two months a price would go up only to settle back down later, but not as far as the original price.

A 220g tin of Branston Beans In Tomato Sauce increased from 38 pence to 57 pence in the second week in September before falling back to 45 pence by last week.

One source familiar with supermarkets said, “Some products are favoured by customers that would not respond well to price rises.”

“But others may still buy their Value Chicken Curry at a higher price thinking it’s still a relatively good bargain.”

“Some people might point out that the once-in-a-while rises of prices sometimes are designed to test customers’ patience to price rises.”

However, Tesco insisted, “We cut thousands of prices every week and have invested more than a lot in lowering prices for customers over the past year.”

“A small number of prices do go up as cost increases are passed on by suppliers. However, we work hard to get prices back down again and that’s what has happened here.”

However, a source at one supplier said, “Some of these prices sound far too high and thus suppliers are not the ones to blame for that. Apart from the most volatile (易挥发的) products, price rises would be much slower.”

There has been a fierce price war this year between Asda and Tesco. Many believe that Asda has won.

63. If customers stop buying a product because of its increased price, Tesco will ______.

A. give an explanation for the increase             B. add more products to the Value range

C. bring the price back down again                 D. lower prices of all products

64. From the passage, we can learn that ______.

A many customers are impatient to price rises

   B. prices of different ranges rise and fall sometimes

   C. most increased prices will go back to the original ones

   D. the price-increased products are those favored by customers

65. Customers may not be sensitive to the price rises of some products when ______.

   A. they are sum prices will go down again           B. they strongly believe in their high qualities

   C. they are really fond of those products              D. they know price rises are just to test patience

66. According to the passage, who admitted being responsible for the price rises of products?

   A. Both suppliers and Tesco did.                               B. Neither suppliers nor Tesco did.

   C. Only suppliers did.                                        D. Only Teseo did.

D

Flights to Gatwick and Luton had to be diverted as snow and ice made runways unsafe.

Weather experts have warned there is more snow on the way, with cold winds and snow showers expected over the weekend.

Police today urged motorists not to drive unless the trip was essential after heavy snow forced numerous road closures and left others barely passable. A spokeswoman said: “Only go out if absolutely necessary. If you do go out, be well equipped.”

The highways Agency said sections of the M40 are closed this morning following accident involving several vehicles on the northern carriageway in Buckinghamshire and the southern carriageway in Oxfordshire.

In Kent, lorries and cars were said to be unable to move in several parts of the county, with roads in Medway in particular said to be in “poor condition”, a police spokeswoman said.

The Sheppey Crossing was closed due to high winds and cross-channel ferry passengers could face slowed journeys because of the conditions.

Suffolk police said operation stack was put into place last night. Officers directed lorries to park up on the old A45 at Levington because the port of Felixstowe was closed due to bad weather conditions.

Air delays

A spokesman for Gatwick airport said flights will not be able to take off until snow and ice is removed from the runway. “The runway is not safe,” he said.

The snow-removing work has already begun but he said it was impossible to estimate how long that would take.

It is currently still snowing at Gatwick where a total of 18 incoming flights have been diverted to other UK airports so far.

Luton airport was due to remain closed until 7 am today because of the severe weather conditions and the shuttle bus between Luton Airport Parkway Station and the airport terminals stopped for the moment.

Easy jet flights to Paris, Geneva, and Turin and Nice, which were due to take off between 4 am and 7 am, have been cancelled.

The 7.05 am to Glasgow, 7.10 am to Edinburgh, 8.25 am to Berlin and 8.40 am to Belfast-- all easy jet--have also been cancelled even if the airport has re-opened by the time they were due to depart.

A spokesman for Heathrow Airport said the runways have been cleared through the night. “Heathrow is open for business as usual,” he said.

Passengers are advised to check with their airline before leaving for the flight, he added.

Rail holdups

Rail passengers may also face chaos this morning.

National Express East Anglia has cancelled several services in Norfolk, Suffolk and Cambridgeshire.

Rail Firm Southern said it is planning a “full normal service” on all routes despite snow in some areas of its network.

It said, “We are working closely with our industry partners and have been taking every precaution against the wintry’ conditions.”

Fellow Rail Operator Southeastern said it too was aiming to run as full a service as possible but travelers were warned to expect delays and cancellations.

67. Which of the following would be the best title for the passage?

A. Chaotic Traffic In Rough Wintry Weather.                          B. Rail Passengers Facing Traffic Chaos.

    C. Flights Cancelled Or Diverted In Winter.                          D. Motorists Unable To Drive Normally.

68. ______ is NOT influenced and still open according to the passage.

   A. Luton Airport             B. Oatwick Airport                C. Heathrow Airport.            D. Geneva Airport

69. What we can infer from the passage is that ______.

   A. people had better not go out unless they have to

   B. it is impossible to estimate how long the snow-removing work will last

   C. all the runways in the UK are covered with heavy snow and thick ice

   D. passengers are advised to check with their airline before leaving for the flight

70. The underlined word “diverted” in the passage can be replaced by

   A. stopped                 B. delayed                        C. cancelled                      D. changed

第四部分:任务型阅读(10小题,每小题1分,满分10)

    请认真阅读下列短文,并根据短文的内容要点完成文章后的表格。注意:补全填空应符合语法和搭配要求,每空只填一个单词。

Two months before Christmas in 1933, Franklin Roosevelt took a fishing vacation off the coast of Florida. After returning to Miami, he went to a park, where, seated in the back of an open touring car, he spoke to some thousands of people, one of whom was Anton Cermak, Mayor of Chicago. Cermak stood close to the President-elect and thus was in the direct line of fire when a killer took aim at Roosevelt. As the Mayor fell to the ground, seriously wounded, the Secret Service shouted at the driver to get the President-elect out of there, but F.D.R. stopped them. And then Roosevelt---a man who could not walk, let alone run, unassisted---swung open the touring-car door and, with arms made strong from years of disabilities, took hold of Cermak, pulled him into the car and then, ordered the driver to go to the nearest hospital. Courage.

Or there is the example of Abraham Lincoln, repeatedly warned of the danger of his appearance in public during the Civil War, who told his bodyguards that their protecting him could not be allowed to interfere with his connection to the people who had chosen him to lead them and the nation. Courage.

And then, lack of courage. Our recent president. Four days late, he arrives in New York. He couldn’t get there sooner because they were targeting Air Force One. So he took another plane. Leaders take chances. Leaders expose themselves to dangers. Let’s rename Air Force One the White Feather Special

This panicky escape-from Florida to Louisiana, then a disappearance under a desk in Nebraska-was the flight of a confused, frightened man. At the same time he disappeared, the news announcers were assuring us that the Vice President was safe in his cave, and the members of the government were safe in their caves. For practical purposes, the federal government, with New York and Washington being attacked by terrorists, had become invisible. The highest good was saving themselves so they could live to lead us on another safer day.

As our president and his team stayed in their safe caves, the ordinary people of New York were extraordinary. Our firefighters, our police officers, our men and women from the building trades and from medicine and every occupation showed us what heroes do. Has there ever been a day like Tuesday, Sept. 11, 2001, a day of such mass murder, of such grief, of such hugeness of heart?

Title: Who were  71  of the times?

Franklin Roosevelt

In  72 , 1933

One possible version:

The graph shows the changes in the number of car sales in China over the period from 2001 till now. As is seen from the graph, in 2001, over 2 million cars were sold, while only in the first eight months in 2010, the sales increased seven times, nearly 12 million.

This sharp increase has caused great concern and a series of social and economic problems. First of all, the air and noise pollution is undoubtedly going from bad to worse. Poisonous gases private cars send out are not only harmful to the environment, but to our health as well. Meanwhile, traffic jams or even accidents are also often seen.

As far as I am concerned, some immediate measures must be taken. For instance, we should pay more attention to the environmental protection to refresh the air. It is expected that more advanced technology can make it a reality to replace the poisonous gas with one which both saves energy and causes little or no harm, thus making our daily life more satisfying!

M: Hello, Nora, I heard about a flat that might interest you girls. It’s near the central bus station on the main road, and about 75 pounds a week, quite reasonable. The problem is, it’s only got two bedrooms, but I expect two of you could share.

W: Well, as long as it’s to me, I’ve got to have my own room, because I’ve been working at home most of the time, any other information?

M: Yes, it’s got a very big and well equipped kitchen, and I know you like cooking. So that’s another point in its favor, but there is a small sitting-room and not much furniture yet. So let me know quickly if you want it or it will be taken.

M: Now, Mrs. Franks, I just like to read your statement back to you, and then you can write your name on it.

W: Fine.

M: I was standing in front of the Second National Bank building at about 8:50 am, I saw a small red car heading for the cross roads of Churchill Avenue, and York Road, it was coming towards me along Churchill Avenue at about 40 miles per hour. The traffic lights on York Road changed to green, and a delivery lorry began to move forward at about 5 miles per hour. The driver of the car probably didn’t see that his traffic light has changed from orange to red, and ran into the side of the lorry.

W: That’s correct.
