One day, a sociologist proposed that the 16 society has been consuming modern humans little by little. For fear that I would become a victim of the consumer society, I 17 hurried to a bicycle shop in my neighborhood. 18 the shopkeeper Mr. Johnson was selling me the bicycle, he said, “This is the best thing you 19 have done. Life has become hopelessly 20 . A bicycle is simple, and it brings to you 21 things: fresh air, sunshine and exercise.” I agreed. Happy as a child, I got on the bicycle and headed out onto the streets. After some time, I 22 at the other end of the town. I was 23 that this simple vehicle could let me 24 long distances in a fairly short time. But how 25 did I really go?Since I hated to be 26 , I went back to Mr. Johnson and asked him to 27 an odometer on my bicycle. He agreed, but 28 , “An odometer without a speedometer is like a 29 without a knife.” I admitted he was right and in a few minutes, the two devices were 30 to the handlebars of my bicycle. “What about a horn?” he then asked. “Look, this horn is no larger than a matchbox and has many 31 .” Attracted by these functions, I bought the horn.“You can’t leave the back part 32 ,” noted Mr. Johnson. He fixed a metal box with buttons 33 the seat, and said, “Is there anything better than this oven when you feel 34 on your way? I can give you a special discount.” I was not strong enough to 35 the offer.“I congratulate you once more; this is the best thing you could have done,” said Mr. Johnson in the end.ww w.X kb1. coM16.

Since you’ve been away, has this country changed for the better—or for the worse?So how have things changed to people coming back to Britain after seven, ten or even 15 years living abroad? What changes in society can they see that the rest of us have hardly noticed—or now take for granted? To find out, we asked some people who recently returned.Debi: When we left, Cheltenham, my home town, was a town of white, middle-class families—all very conservative . The town is now home to many eastern Europeans and lots of Australians, who come here mainly to work in hotels and tourism. There are even several shops only for foreigners.Having been an immigrant myself, I admire people who go overseas to find a job. Maybe if I lived in an inner city where unemployment was high, I’d think differently, but I believe foreign settlers have improved this country because they’re more open-minded and often work harder than the natives.Christine: As we flew home over Britain, both of us remarked how green everything looked. But the differences between the place we’d left behind and the one we returned to were brought sharply into focus as soon as we landed.To see policemen with guns in the airport for the first time was frightening—in Cyprus, they’re very relaxed—and I got pulled over by customs officers just for taking a woolen sweater with some metal-made buttons out of my case in the arrivals hall. Everyone seemed to be on guard. Even the airport car-hire firm wanted a credit card rather than cash because they said their vehicles had been used by bank robbers.But anyway, this is still a green, beautiful country. I just wish more people would appreciate what they’ve got.36. After a short overseas holiday, people tend to _______.A. expect small changes B. notice small changesC. welcome small changes D. exaggerate small changes37. How does Debi look at the foreign settlers?A. Cautiously. B. Sceptically. C. Positively. D. Critically.38. When arriving at the airport in Britain, Christine was shocked by _______.A. the relaxed policemen B. the messy arrivals hallC. the bank robbers D. the tight security39. Which might be the best title for the passage?A. Back in Britain. B. Life in Britain.C. Britain in Future. D. Britain in Memory.BWhen my brother and I were young, my mom would take us on Transportation Days.It goes like this: You can’t take any means of transportation more than once. We would start from home, walking two blocks to the rail station. We’d take the train into the city center, then a bus, switching to the tram, then maybe a taxi. We always considered taking a horse carriage in the historic district, but we didn’t like the way the horses were treated, so we never did. At the end of the day, we took the subway to our closest station, where Mom’s friend was waiting to give us a ride home—our first car ride of the day.The good thing about Transportation Days is not only that Mom taught us how to get around. She was born to be multimodal . She understood that depending on cars only was a failure of imagination and, above all, a failure of confidence—the product of a childhood not spent exploring subway tunnels.On Transportation Days, we might sTOP for lunch on Chestnut Street or buy a new book or toy, but the transportation was the point. First, it was exciting enough to watch the world speed by from the train window. As I got older, my mom helped me unlock the mysteries that would otherwise have paralyzed my first attempts to do it myself: How do I know where to get off? How do I know how much it cosplayts? How do I know when I need tickets, and where to get them? What track, what line, which direction, where’s the sTOP, and will I get wet when we go under the river?I’m writing this right now on an airplane, a means we didn’t try on our Transportation Days and, we now know, the dirtiest and most polluting of them all. My flight routed me through Philadelphia. My multimodal mom met me for dinner in the airport. She took a train to meet me.40. Which was forbidden by Mom on Transportation Days?A. Having a car ride. B. Taking the train twice.C. Buying more than one toy. D. Touring the historic district.41. According to the writer, what was the greatest benefit of her Transportation Days?A. Building confidence in herself. B. Reducing her use of private cars.C. Developing her sense of direction. D. Giving her knowledge about vehicles.42. The underlined word “paralyzed” is closest in meaning to “_______”.A. displayed[Z§B. Justified C. Ignored D. destroyecl43. Which means of transportation does the writer probably have a dislike of?A. Subway. B. Airplane. C. Tram. D. Car.CHow is it that siblings can turn out so differently? One answer is that in fact each sibling grows up in a different family. The firstborn is, for a while, an only child, and therefore has a completely different experience of the parents than those born later. The next child is, for a while, the youngest, until the situation is changed by a new arrival. The mother and father themselves are changing and growing up too. One sibling might live in a stable and close family in the first few years; another might be raised in a family crisis, with a disappointed mother or an angry father.Sibling competition was identified as an important shaping force as early as in 1918. But more recently, researchers have found many ways in which brothers and sisters are a lasting force in each others’ lives. Dr. Annette Henderson says firstborn children pick up vocabulary more quickly than their siblings. The reason for this might be that the later children aren’t getting the same one-on-one time with parents. But that doesn’t mean that the younger children have problems with language development. Later-borns don’t enjoy that much talking time with parents, but instead they harvest lessons from bigger brothers and sisters, learning entire phrases and getting an understanding of social concepts such as the difference between “I” and “me”.One way children seek more attention from parents is by making themselves different from their siblings, particularly if they are close in age. Researchers have found that the first two children in a family are typically more different from each other than the second and third. Girls with brothers show their differences to a maximum degree by being more feminine than girls with sisters. A 2003 research paper studied adolescents from 185 families over two years, finding that those who changed to make themselves different from their siblings were successful in increasing the amount of warmth they gained from their parents.44. The underlined part “in a different family” means “_______”.A. in a different family environment B. in a different family traditionC. in different family crises D. in different families45. In terms of language development, later-borns ________.A. get their parents’ individual guidanceB. learn a lot from their elder siblingsC. experience a lot of difficultiesD. pick up words more quickly46. What was found about fights among siblings?A. Siblings hated fighting and loved playing.B. Siblings in some families fought frequently.C. Sibling fights led to bad sibling relationships.D. Siblings learned to get on together from fights.47. The word “feminine” means “_______”.A. having qualities of parents B. having qualities of womenC. having defensive qualities D. having extraordinary qualitiesDIt was a simple letter asking for a place to study at Scotland’s oldest university which helped start a revolution in higher education. A 140-year-old letter written by a lady calling for her to be allowed to study medicine at St Andrews University has been discovered by researchers. Written by Sophia Jex-Blake in 1873, the seven-page document, which urged the university to allow women to study medicine at the institution, was released yesterday on International Women’s Day.The document was discovered buried in the university archives by part-time history student Lis Smith, who is completing her PhD at St Andrews Institute of Scottish Historical Research. She said: “We knew that Sophia Jex-Blake and her supporters, in their effort to open up university medical education for women, had written to the Senatus Academicus at St Andrews in an attempt to gain permission to attend classes there, but we didn’t know documentary evidence existed. While searching the archives for information about the university’s higher certificate for women, I was astonished to come across what must be the very letter Jex-Blake wrote.”In the letter, Sophia and her supporters offered to hire teachers or build suitable buildings for a medical school and to arrange for lectures to be delivered in the subjects not already covered at St Andrews. Although her letter was not successful, it eventually led to the establishment of the Ladies Literate in Arts at St Andrews, a distance-learning degree for women. The qualification, which ran from 1877 until the 1930s, gave women access to university education in the days before they were admitted as students. It was so popular that it survived long after women were admitted as full students to St Andrews in 1892.Ms Jex-Blake went on to help establish the London School of Medicine for Women in 1874. She was accepted by the University of Berne, where she was awarded a medical degree in January 1877. Eventually, she moved back to Edinburgh and opened her own practice.48. Sophia wrote a letter to St Andrews University because she wanted _______.A. to carry out a research project thereB. to set up a medical institute thereC. to study medicine thereD. to deliver lectures there49. Lis Smith found Sophia’s letter to St Andrews University _______.A. by pure chance B. in the school officeC. with her supporters’ help D. while reading history books50. Sophia’s letter resulted in the establishment of _______.A. the London School of Medicine for Women B. a degree programme for womenC. a system of medical education D. the University of Berne51. When did St Andrews University begin to take full-time women students?A. In 1873. B. In 1874. C. In 1877. D. In 1892.EBrrriiinnng. The alarm clock announces the start of another busy weekday in the morning. You jump out of bed, rush into the shower, into your clothes and out the door with hardly a moment to think. A stressful journey to work gets your blood pressure climbing. once at the office, you glance through the newspaper with depressing stories or reports of disasters. In that sort of mood, who can get down to work, particularly some creative, original problem-solving work?The way most of us spend our mornings is exactly opposite to the conditions that promote flexible, open-minded thinking. Imaginative ideas are most likely to come to us when we’re unfocused. If you are one of those energetic morning people, your most inventive time comes in the early evening when you are relaxed. Sleepy people’s lack of focus leads to an increase in creative problem solving. By not giving yourself time to tune into your wandering mind, you’re missing out on the surprising solutions it may offer.The trip you take to work doesn’t help, either. The stress slows down the speed with which signals travel between neurons , making inspirations less likely to occur. And while we all should read a lot about what’s going on in the world, it would not make you feel good for sure, so put that news website or newspaper aside until after the day’s work is done.So what would our mornings look like if we wanted to start them with a full ability for creative problem solving? We’d set the alarm a few minutes early and lie awake in bed, following our thoughts where they lead. We’d stand a little longer under the warm water of the shower, sTOPping thinking about tasks in favor of a few more minutes of relaxation. We’d take some deep breaths on our way to work, instead of complaining about heavy traffic. And once in the office—after we get a cup of coffee—we’d click on links not to the news of the day but to the funniest videos the web has to offer.52. According to the author, we are more creative when we are _______.A. focused B. awake C. Relaxed D. busy53. What does the author imply about newspapers?A. They are solution providers. B. They are normally full of bad news.C. They are a source of inspiration. D. They are more educational than websites.54. By “tune into your wandering mind” , the author means “_______”.A. wander into the wild B. listen to a beautiful tuneC. sTOP concentrating on anything D. switch to the traffic channel55. The author writes the last paragraph in order to _______.A. summarize past experiences B. offer practical suggestionsC. advocate diverse ways of life D. establish a routine for the future2014届高中三年级入学小月考英语考试题目答卷卷试题总分 100分 答卷时间 90分钟班级_________________ 名字 _________________第Ⅰ卷答案一 单选 1-5______________ 6-10 ________________ 11-15 _________________二 完形 16-20 ________________ 21-25___________________26-30 ________________ 31-35 __________________三 阅读 （A) 第Ⅱ卷（非选择题，共35分）短文改错（共10小题；每小题1.5分，满分15分）此题需要改正所给短文中的错误。文中共有10处语言错误，每句中最多两个错误；每处错误仅涉及一个单词的增加，删除或修改。删除：把多余的词用斜线（\）划掉。增加：在缺词处加一个漏字符号（∧），并在其下写出该加的词。修改：在错的词下划一横线，并在该词下面写出改正后的词。注意：1. 每处错误及其修改均仅限一词；2. 只允许修改10处，多者（从11处起）不计分。When my twentieth birthday came, I was not in home. In order to celebrate so an important day with my parent, I wrote them a letter. In the letter I thanked them for have raised me for twenty years, and express my love for them. Later my mother told me she read the letter, her eyes were filled with tears. But my father appeared much cooler. He read it alone carefully, but then he put it away. I can imagine the scene clear because I know my father very well. Be a man with few words, he prefers to show his love for me in silent way.
