four questions.For each question there are four suggested answers marked A,B,C and

D.Choose the best answer and blacken the corresponding letter on the Answer Sheet.

Passage One

I talk to strangers for a living and love the challenge of getting their stories published in

newspapers.I've been married for years,but until six months a90,I could be a typical absent—minded husband.Often l was just nodding when l was supposed t0.When my wife asked,

“Did you even hear what I just said?”1 would defensively say,“0f course I did!”

In January,I began to lose my voice.Doctors told me I needed surgery,or my throat

would be permanently damaged.Total silence would be required for the first few weeks of my

recovery.

Two hours after the surgery,my eyes filled with tears as my two-year-old son looked

puzzled because l wouldn’t answer his questions.1 wanted to talk but couldn’t.Luckily,I'd

recorded myself reading some of his favorite books.That would come in handy the next couple

of weeks.

When I got home,I noticed a“side effect”:as my wife talked to me to keep up my

spirits,1 wasn’t just hearing her;1 was listening to her.Over the next few weeks,I didn’t want

to miss a word she said,I began to hear sweetness in her voice.It had never left.I'd just

stopped noticin9.I found myself understanding her better on topics I'd previously dismissed as

“things I just don’t get as a guy”.I also realized my son wasn’t just talking nonstop but that he

often had thoughtful things to say.Even while walking my dog in the woods near our home,I

began hearing pleasant patterns in birdsongs.Before my surgery,I'd have spent those walks on

my phone.

After several weeks,1 was fully recovered.Conversation in our house is better now,not

because I'm talking more.I’m just listening better and becoming less and less surprised that I

like what I hear.

Passage Two

Coconut(椰子)is an unusual food for many reasons.It is one of the largest edible seeds

produced by any plant.Its unusual contents also make it unique in the seed world—it consists

of both“meat’’and“water”inside.The coconut meat is the white substance with which we are

all familiar,as it is used extensively for cooking a.nd flavorings;the coconut water is a white and

sweet liquid.

Portuguese(葡萄牙的)explorers gave the nut its name in the l 5 th century.referring to it

as COC0,meanin9“ghost”in their language.The outside appearance of coconuts reminded

them of a ghost’s face,and the tree has had that name ever since.

The coconut has varied uses.It is used to make various cooking oils for fast.food

restaurants around the world to make diet materials.The coconut fluid is a favorite drink in hot

climates,providing a cool and refreshing beverage right off the tree.This water is also used by

manufacturers of various sports drinks.Even the shell itself has many uses,including animal

food and fertilizer.

Yet the coconut is also useful in many ways that have nothing to do with food.Coconut oil

is used for cosmetics(化妆品),medicines,and so on.Dried coconut shells are used in many

countries as a tool for shining wood floors.The shells are also used for shirt buttons,and are

commonly found on Hawaiian clothin9.They are even used for musical instruments and bird

houses.

And all these are only some of the uses found for the coconut fruit.The coconut tree,

which produces the nut,also produces many useful things.It’s no wonder that the coconut tree has been taken as“the tree of life”.

Passage Three

Most students choose“Homestay”accommodation when they study abroad:others select

Homestay even if they are not on a study visit.Statistics show that it’s a form of accommodation gaining in popularity all the time.

But what is Homestay?And what makes it so popular?

Homestay means living with a family,or“host family”as we say.There are three ways of

doing it:

·choose to learn English in a language school near to your Homestay location:

·have your English classes in the house with a member of the family who is a qualified

teacher;

·select not to have classes at all when you visit——a popular choice if you want to do the

tourist thing for example.

Even in their busy summer period the organizations that arrange the Homestays will always

try to place you with the most suitable host family to match your requirements.Placement(安

置)organizations think about location,interests,language level,eating requirements,allergies

(过敏)and other requests you may have.

Though prices vary according to your needs,good quality Homestay accommodation can be

relatively economical--and although you may be charged an extra amount of money if you want your Homestay in or near the city centre.Even if you stay further out,you can expect your

journey into the centre not to exceed 30 minutes·

Not onlY does Homestay accommodation represent value for money, it also glVes you an excelient opportunity to practise English with your host family.This is a very imPortant extra for students who like to speak as much English as possible. But if you plan to leam English,why

not have vour English classes in your host family.9 There’s no better way to learn English than

this—the Derfect combination of learning and accommodation combined with the Cultural experience !

Using 1ess energy around the home is easier than you might think,saving you money while

creating a heahhier,more comfortable living space for you and your family. Changing a few old habits can make an impact on your energy bill, your comfort and the environment.Here are

some handy tips to make your house more energy-efficient.

Lower the heat

If vour home has adjustable central heating,lowering the room temperature eVen sllghtly

can make a difference. You may not feel it, but your wallet will. It is even more adVisable to control temperatures at different times of the day·

Hang clothes out to dry

If the weather allows it,head outside and dry your laundry on a clothesline.The sunlight

will help eliminate bacteria and dust. While clothes dryers get the job done faster,they also use up energy.By hanging your clothes out you’11 be cutting greenhouse gases by about three kilograms per load.

Take advantage of natural light

Installing large windows on the northern side of your house can help you make use of sunli ght,s natural warmth. To stay c00l indoors on hot summer days,install blinds(百叶窗) to block the heavy sun.Put your desk near the window,then you don’t need a lamp in the

daytime.

Wrap(裹)your pipes

Be sure your hot—water pipes are properly wrapped.In an average home,heating water

accounts for more than one—quarter of the energy bill.Why let warmth go to waste before it reaches you? 、

Passage Five

As we recently discovered,there is a Stepmother’s Day,though it is not on any official

holiday calendar.S0,it would be safe to assume that there is a similar day for stepdads,t00.

Right?Well,it depends on what you read.A Google search brought up posts that say,for

example,“It’s on father’s day--father’s day is for fathers,step—fathers and people who are like fathers to you-it’s a day for making father figures feel special.”Further searching found a Stepfather’s Day Facebook page that says,“The unofficial Stepfather’s Day is the fourth Sunday of June.”Unfortunately,as of the publishing of this article,only 30 people have“liked”the page.Considering that studies show 3.3 million men,or l l.1%of U.S.fathers,live with at least one stepchild,that’s only a drop in the ocean.

It’s interesting to note that there is a National Grandparents’Day.President Jimmy Carter

signed it into law in 1978.Law! While grandparents are undoubtedly special people in our children’s lives,they are often seen as the most loving family members.But what about the

stepparents? The stepparents are the ones who are often the outsiders,the ones who have to

endure the hurtful“You’re not my dad!”or“You’re not my mom!”And yet they never give

up.They do their best to overcome the inherent challenges of stepparents and be role models for their stepchildren.These unsung(未被颂扬的)family heroes deserve“official”days of

honor.Perhaps if we are loud enough,President Obama,who had a stepfather himself,will sign

into law National Stepmother’s Day and National Stepfather’s Day.

Are you with me?Follow me and get your voice heard.How cool it would be if we could

make this happen!

5 2.What does the underlined word“that’’in Paragraph l refer to?

A.Father figures who are equally honored in the U.S.

B.30 people who support Stepfather’s Day on the Facebook page.

C.3.3 million men who live with at least one stepchild in the world.

D.1 1.1%of U.S.fathers who live with at least one stepchild in the U.S.

53.What did President Jimmy Carter sign into law in l978 7

A.The National Grandparents’Day. B.The National Grandchildren’s Day.

C.The National Stepparents’Day.D.The National Stepchildren’s Day.

54.Which of the following is closest in meaning to the word“inherent”in paragraph 2 9.

A.Unbelievable. B.Tough. C.Lastin9.D.Inevitable.

55.What is the reason for setting an official holiday for stepparents.9

A.Because they love their role as stepparents.
