Part IReading Comprehension (30 % )
Directions : There are 3 passages in this part. Each passage is followed by some questions or unfin-ished statements. For each of them there are four choices marked A, B, C and D.You should de-cide on the best choice and mark the corresponding letter on the Answer Sheet with a single line through the center.
Questions 1 to 5 are based on the.following passage:
There was one thought that air pollution affected only the area immediately around large citieswith factories and heavy automobile traffic. At present, we realize that although these are the areas with the worst air pollution, the problem is literally worldwide. ( 76 ) On several occasions over the past decade, a heavy cloud of air pollution has covered the east of the United States and brought health warnings in rural areas away from any major concentration of manufacturing and automobile traffic. In fact, the very climate of the entire earth may be infected by air pollution. Some scien-tists consider that the increasing concentration of carbon dioxide in the air resulting from the burning of fossil fuels (coal and oil) is creating a "greenhouse effect"--conserving heat reflected from the earth and raising the world' s average temperature. If this view is correct and the world' s tempera- ture is raised only a few degrees, much of the polar ice cap will melt and cities such as New York,Boston, Miami, and New Orleans will be in water.
(77) Another view, less widely held, is that increasing particular matter in the atmosphere is blocking sunlight and lowering the earth' s temperature--a result that would be equally disastrous.
A drop of just a few degrees could create something close to a new ice age, and would make agri-culture difficult or impossible in many of our top fanning areas. Today we do not know for sure that either of these conditions will happen (though one recent government report drafted by experts in the field concluded that the greenhouse effect is very possible ). Perhaps, if we are lucky enough, the two tendencies will offset each other and the world' s temperature will stay about the same as it is now.
1. As pointed out at the beginning of the passage, people used to think that air pollution__________.
A. caused widespread damage in the countryside
B. affected the entire eastern half of the United States
C. had damaging effect on health
D. existed merely in urban and industries areas
2. As to the greenhouse effect, the author__________.
A. shares the same view with the scientists
B. is uncertain of its occurrence
C. rejects it as bein~ ungrounded
D. thinks that it will destroy the world soon
3. The word "offset" in the second paragraph could be replaced by__________.
A. slip into
B. make up for
C. set up
D. catch up with
4. It can be concluded that__________.
A. raising the world' s temperature only a few degrees would not do much harm to life on earth
B. lowering the world' s temperature merely a few degrees would lead many major farming areas to disaster
C. almost no temperature variations have occurred over the past decade
D. the world' s temperature will remain constant in the years to come
5. This passage is primarily about__________.
A. the greenhouse effect
B. the burning of fossil fuels
C. the potential effect of air pollution
D. the likelihood of a new ice age
Questions 6 to 10 are based on the following passage :
Harriet Beecher Stowe had poured her heart into her anti-slavery book," Uncle Tom' s Cab-in". But neither she nor her first publisher thought it would be a big success. (78)The publisher was so doubtful that he wanted her to split the publishing costs with him, and all she hoped was that it would make enough money for her to buy a new silk dress.
But when the first 5,000 copies were printed in 1852, they sold out in two days. In a year the book had sold 300,000 copies in the United States and 150,000 in England. For a while it outsold(销得比... 多) every book in the world, except the Bible.
Within six months of its release, a play was made from the book which ran 350 performances in New York and remained America'. s most popular play for 80 years.
( 79 ) It might appear that" Uncle Tom' s Cabin" was universally popular, but this was certainly not true. Many people during those pre-Civil War days--particularly defenders of the slavery sys-tem-condemned it as false propaganda and poorly written melodrama(传奇剧作品).
Harriet did have strong religious views against slavery ( When asked how she came to write the book, she replied," God wrote it. "), and she tried to convince people slavery was wrong, so per-haps the book could be considered propaganda. But if so, it was true propaganda, because it accu-rately described the evils of slavery.
Though she was born in Connecticut, 1832, as a young woman she moved to Cincinnati, Ohio, when her father accepted the presidency of newly founded Lane Theological Seminary( 神学 院). Ohio was a free state, but just across the Ohio River in Kentucky, Harriet saw slavery in ac-
tion. She lived 18 years in Cincinnati, marrying Calvin Stowe, professor of a college. In 1851, Harriet Beecher Stowe began her book.
Its vast influence strengthened the anti-slavery movement and angered defenders of the slave system. Today some historians(历史学家) think that it helped bring on the American Civil War.
In fact, when Abraham Lincoln met Harriet at the White House during the Civil War, he said,"So, this is the little lady who started this big war. "
6. Before the publication of the book "Uncle Tom' s Cabin"__________.
A. Harriet knew that it would be a great success
B. the publisher wanted Harriet to publish it at her own expense
C. nobody knew that it would become a very popular book
D. no publisher wanted to publish this anti-slavery book
7. Some people did not like "Uncle Tom's Cabin" chiefly because__________.
A. the author was merely an unknown little lady
B. they thought it was mere propaganda
C. the book was poorly written
D. the book might lead to a terrible war
8. Han'iet Beecher Stowe was able to describe the evils of slavery because__________.
A. she had lived for 18 years in a state where slavery was legal
B. she had suffered quite a lot under the slavery system
C. she had witnessed what happened under the slavery system
D. she had read a lot about the slavery system
9. When Abraham Lincoln called Harriet "the little lady who started this big war", he__________.
A. thought that she was almost a war criminal
B. was talking about the great influence her book had produced
C. was blaming her for the miseries the people had suffered during the war
D. was praising her for the contributions she had made during the war
10. The writer wrote the passage in order to__________.
A. expose the evils of the slavery system
B. condemn all kinds of war
C. describe people' s life in Harriet' s time
D. tell us how Harriet wrote her famous book
Questions 11 to 15 are based on the following passage:
"Equal pay for equal work" is a phrase used by the American women who feel that they are unfairly treated by society. They say it is not right for women to be paid less than men for the same work.
Some people say men have more duties than women. A married man is thought to earn money to support his family and to make the important decision, so it is right for them to be paid more.
Some are even against married women working at all. When wives go out to work, they say, the home and children are given no attention to. (80) If women are encouraged by equal pay to take full-time jobs, they will be unable to do the thing.s they are best at doing: makinga nice home and bringing up children.
Women who disagree say they want to escape from the limited place which society wishes them to fill and to have freedom to choose between work and home life, or a mixture of the two.
Women have the right not only to equal pay but also to equal chances.
11. The women use the phrase "equal pay for equal work" to ask society to__________.
A. pay men less than women
B. give women harder work

A. women should be kind to their husbands
B. women are too weak to take full-time jobs

Part I Dialogue Communication
Part IReading Comprehension
3．B推理判断题。即使不认识“0ffset”这个词，我们也可通过上下文猜出来。文章提到的两种可能性一是全球变暖，一是全球降温，只有这两种可能性相互抵消，即冷暖相互弥补，才能出现最后一句的“气温和现在一样正常”。所以选B(make up for“弥补”)。slip into“滑进”；set up“建立，创造”；catch up with“追上，赶上”。
Part ⅡVocabulary and Structure
16．B本题考查名词辨析。come to a conclusion“得出结论”，固定搭配；come to no conclusion“没得出结论”。come to an end“结束”，一般不说come to no end。result“结果”；judg—ment“判断”，后两个词不和come to相搭配。句意为：这个问题他们讨论了三四次，但没能得出结论。
17．A本题考查连词辨析。可转化为If you don’t leave immediately，you will be late。B、D句意不对，且or表转折，A意为“除非”。句意为：除非你立即走，否则你就会迟到。
18．D本题考查动词短语辨析。take sth．apart“把…拆开”；take…off…“把…从…上取下来”；work out“做出，制定出”；set off“动身，起程”。句意为：除非你有把握能重新组装到一块，要不然不要拆开相机。
19．B本题考查介词短语辨析。in no time“立刻，马上”，可以和过去时、将来时搭配；in time“及时”；at one time“曾经”，用在过去时中；at a time“一次”，表频率。句意为：请照看一下我的行李，我马上回来。
20．A本题考查动词短语辨析。keep in touch with“与…保持联系”；face up往往和to搭配，表示“勇敢面对”；turn the clock back“把时间调回…”；slow down“慢下来”。句意为：躺在医院里，这位病人每天靠收看电视新闻节目与外界保持联系。
29．A本题考查形容词辨析。accurate“正确无误的，可以提供正确的读数或度量的”，如an accurate scale精确的天平；precise“精确的，正确的”，如在实行、实施或数量上很准确的，如a precise measurement／a precise instrument精确的测量／精密仪器；exact“确切的，严格的”；perfect“完美的，理想的”。天气预报应属于accurate的范畴。句意为：根据通常都很准确的天气预报，今天下午会下雪。
30．D本题考查虚拟语气的用法。but for+名词／代词，“要不是因为…”，提出与事实相反的假设，相当于一个条件状语从句，所在句子常用虚拟语气。其他的结构都不用虚拟语气。从主句“we should have reached our destination”可判断，该句使用了虚拟语气，所以选D。句意为：要不是下雾，我们就到达目的地了。
31．D本题考查动词短语辨析。cut down“砍倒，削减，减少”；cut in“打断”；cut up“切碎”。句意为：学校开学孩子们不得不减少玩的时问。
32．B本题考查let alone的用法。let alone“更不用说”，后可接名词或动词原形。句意为：那样的房子我租都租不起，更不用说买了。
33．B本题考查反义疑问句的用法。Let us…，will you?表示说话人请求听话人让其做某事，意思是“让我们做…，行吗?”但如果是Let’s…，shall we?表示说话人向听话人提出建议，要求听话人与其一起做某事。句意为：请多给我点时间，好吗?
34．A本题考查固定搭配。take sth．for granted“认为…理所当然”。句意为：他说英语说得那么好，我想当然认为他是个美国人。
35．C本题考查分词的用法。因为“person”和“interview”之间存在被动的关系，B被排除了；to be interviewed表示“将要被面试的”，时态不对；interviewed表示“已面试完了的”，时态也不对。being interviewed表示“正在被面试的”，时态、语态都对。句意为：当面试者回答问题时，面试官应做记录。
36．C本题考查动词短语辨析。i'un into=l'un across“偶然遇见…”；run over“(车辆)轧过，压过”；run out of“用完，用光”。句意为：你永远也猜不到我昨天在街上遇到谁了。
37．A本题考查it is no use doing sth．句型。it is no use doing sth．“做某事没用”。句意为：我认为没必要继续讨论这个问题了。
41．C本题考查动词辨析。rescue sb．from sth．“从…当中援救…”，固定搭配；regain“收回，恢复”；recoverfrom…“从…当中恢复”；reserve“保存，保留，预定”。句意为：他们从着火的大楼里援救这个孩子的所有努力全都白费了。
45．B本题考查句子结构以及worth和worthwhile的区别。it在本句中是形式宾语，worth—while是宾语补足语。worth一般不单独使用，往往构成“worth+钱”或“worth doing”的结构中，表示“值…钱”或“某事值得被做”，因此在本句中不合适。worthy在“worthy to do”或“woahy of sth．／doing sth．”的结构中表示“值得做的”，做定语修饰名词时表示“可敬的，相称的”，所以也不符合题意。只有worthwhile“值得做的，值得出力的”在语法和含义上都符合。句意为：他们觉得为可能遇到的最坏情况做准备不值得。
46．C动词用法错误，应改为objected to，因为object表“反对”时是不及物动词。object to sth．／doing sth．反对某事(做某事)。
47．D代词位置错误，应改为put it out。“动词+副词”短语接代词宾语时，代词要放在动词和副词之问。
49．C介词搭配错误，应改为in much the same way。in the same way“以同样的方式”，固定搭配。
51．B并列结构错误，应改为not only finished。not only…but also…“不仅…而且…”，用来连接句中两个并列的成分。在本句中not only…but also…连接的是两个并列的谓语动词，即finish和read。因此not only应放在finished之前。
52．A连词用法错误，应改为Each time。each time…“每次…”，这个名词短语本身可以起连词的作用，可以引导时间状语从句。类似的还有the moment…。
53．C短语搭配错误，应改为just as much。as…as…“和…一样…，像…一样…”，用来表示同级比较，其否定形式是not S0…as…。该句是肯定句，所以用as…as…。
65．B two more stars“又多了两颗星”。another表示“又，再”的时候，往往放数词之前，应说 “another two stars”。
66．D representing the new states“代表着两个新州”，该结构是现在分词短语，修饰stars，因为stars和represent之间是主动关系，所以用现在分词来表示。
67．A介词of在此处表示同位关系，即the new states就是指Alaska和Hawaii。又如：the city of Beijing北京市。
68．C It is said that…“据说”，其中it做形式主语。英语中形式主语和形式宾语只能由it来充当，其他代词都不行。
71．C those who…“…的那些人”，those在此处表示那些人。其余选项都不能这样用。
72．B in great numbers“大量地，大批地，成群结队地”，指人成群地来，固定搭配。
73．A on the coast“沿着海岸线”。coast往往和on相搭配，而不与其他介词搭配。
74．C for that reason“由于那个原因”，固定搭配。又如for some reason“由于某种原因”。
75．B those可用来指代前面所提到的复数名词。在本句中，those代替的是“its culture and customs”。that和the one都用来指代单数名词，these无此用法。

Good Study Habits
Study habits play a decisive role in the effect of learning. It is, therefore, important that we should form a good habit when we study.
According to study advisers, there are some basic ways for learning well. Frequent revision,for example, is one of them. It is not a quick way of learning well, of course, however, it does prove effective in the long run. Also, to do enough preparations before class helps a lot.
Besides, there is another way of learning, that is, learning through communicating. Learning will be more efficient if you put what you have learned or are learning into practice. That' s why in recent years "Communicative Method" has been strongly recommended in schools in China.
