第二节 完形填空(共20小题;每小题1分,满分20分)
阅读下面短文,掌握其大意,从每题所给的A、B、C、D四个选项中选出最佳答案,并在答题卡上将该项涂黑。$
If guilt could talk, it would say: “How dare you do the things you do when others never get a chance to enjoy them!”    Last week, I walked out of the doctor’s office grinning like a mule eating briars.I’d just been told that my eyes were perfect.
    I was so happy. Then the guilt  36  .
    My younger brother was born blind. If his blindness ever weighed him down, he never let it  37  . But I grew up   38   the weight of it on my shoulders.$
   “Sister,” he  39  say, “tell me what it looks like.”    I’d describe the sun that  40  his face or the birds that flew across the sky as best I could.
    If I failed to get it right, he’d say: “That’s not it, try again.”
    Have you ever tried to put into  41   things that can only be described with feelings that come from the heart?
    It’s hard not to feel  42  walking out of an eye exam with great vision, knowing your brother is blind. I can see and he can’t. Where is the fairness?
    The truth, of course, is that there is no  43   this. Joe is blind. I am not. So why the guilt?
    When my first husband died of cancer, I kept asking myself why I got to go on living and he didn’t. Why did I  44  see our children finish college, fall in love, get married and have children of their own? Why did he have to miss all the things?    The problem with blaming  45  for things that aren’t our fault is that it blinds us to beauty and numbs (使麻木) us to life. It hurts, not just us, but everyoneus. And yet how do we make it stop?$
    I still don’t know the answer to this, but what I’ve learned so far is: Guilt is a feeling begging to be an action. It doesn’t want you to feel bad. It wants you to  46  .
    So I do. I try to act in a way that turns guilt into honor. To honor my brother, I try to see everything he can’t. To honor my   47   husband, I try to be alive in ways he used to be. I delight in family, friends, people  48  , and all the crazy things they do. And I say “yes” to every chance I get to learn and be alive.
    But it’s a lot more  49  than feeling bad. Instead of wallowing in (沉溺于) guilt, I see for someone who will never see. And I live well for someone who is no longer alive. I do it for them. ButI do it for me. It’s not easy to see the world with all its glories and faults, or to be alive in all the ways life demands.

第三部分:阅读理解(共15小题,每题2分,满分30分)
阅读下列短文,从每题所给的四个选项A、B、C、D中,选出最佳答案。“Hi! How are you?” The woman smiled as she took the seat beside me on the airplane. She had to lower herself slowly, squeezing her ample (大的) bottom into the space. Positioning herself comfortably, she put her enormous arm on the armrest.I didn’t reply and leaned (倾斜) toward the window. She repeated her greeting in a friendly voice.“Hi,” I replied.
    “My name is Laura. I’m from Britain. How about you?” A palm waved in front of my face.    “Malaysia.” I shook her hand reluctantly (不情愿地).Laura started a conversation with me, taking no notice of my unfriendly reactions. Her voice was warm and caring. She was thoughtful. When we were served drinks and meals she made sure that I had room to move in my seat. “I don’t want to make you uncomfortable with my elephant size!” she said with great sincerity (真诚).
    To my surprise, the face that I had disliked hours before slowly showed an extraordinary smile – lively and calm at the same time. I couldn’t help but let down my guard.
    Laura was an interesting conversationalist. She was well-read in many subjects, from philosophy (哲学) to science. She turned a seemingly unimportant subject into something to explore and understand. Her comments were humorous and inspirational (有启发性的). When the topic turned to our cultures, I was surprised by her intelligent comments and well-thought-out analysis.    I asked Laura: “Have you ever thought about losing some weight? You aren’t worried about the diseases that come with being overweight?”    “Not at all, because I eat healthily and walk regularly,” she said. “This may not be scientific, but I believe in my heart that the people who get diseases are the ones who worry all the time. You see advertisements from exercise centers that say: ‘Liberate (解放) yourself from your extra baggage so that you are free to be yourself.’ It’s rubbish! You’re liberated only if you’re comfortable with who you are.”    She sipped (小口地喝) her wine. “Besides, God gives me so much happiness that I need a bigger body to hold all of it! If I lose weight, I’ll lose my happiness.”When we waved goodbye to each other at the airport, I suddenly realized that Laura was the most beautiful person I had ever met in my life.
51. Why was the author unfriendly toward Laura in the beginning?  A. The author was not in a good mood that day.  B. The author had hoped to enjoy the trip alone.  C. The author was not good at making friends with strangers.  D. The author wasn’t comfortable with Laura’s size.52. Why didn’t Laura want to lose weight?  A. She didn’t think she needed to.  B. She didn’t trust advertisements.  C. She liked being big because it got her attention.   D. She thought happiness was more important than health.53. What kind of person is Laura?   A. Talkative and loud.            B. Warm and considerate.   C. Knowledgeable and proud.      D. Wild and adventurous.
B
    French writer Frantz Fanon once said: “To speak a language is to take on a world, a culture.” Since the world changes every day, so does our language.More than 300 new words and phrases have recently made it into the online Oxford                 Dictionary, and in one way or another they are all reflections of today’s changing world.    After a year that was politically unstable, it’s not hard to understand the fact that people’s political views are one of the main drives of our expanding vocabulary. One example is “clicktivism”, a compound (合成词) of “click” and “activism”. It refers to “armchair activists (键盘侠)” – people who support a political or social cause, but only show their support from behind a computer or smartphone. And “otherize” is a verb for “other” that means to alienate (使疏远) people who are different from ourselves – whether that be different skin color, religious belief or sexuality.    “We had all the words around Brexit (脱欧) in the last update and we are now starting to see all the words around Trump coming into the dictionary,” Angus Stevenson, Oxford Dictionaries’ head of content development, told The Guardian.Lifestyle is also changing our language. For example, “fitspiration” – a compound of “fit” and “inspiration” – refers to a person or thing that encourages one to exercise and stay fit and healthy.    The phrase “climate refugee” – someone who is forced to leave their home due to climate change – reflects people’s concern for the environment.According to Stevenson, social media was the main source for the new expressions. “People feel much freer to coin their own words these days,” he said.    But still, not all newly-invented words get the chance to make their way into a mainstream (主流的) dictionary. If you want to create your own hit words, Stevenson’s suggestion is that you should not only make sure that they are expressive (有表现力的) and meaningful, but also have an attractive sound so that people will enjoy saying them out loud.
54.What is the article mainly about?  A. Some new words that got included into the online Oxford Dictionary.  B. The application of new words and phrases.  C. How a language mirrors the changing world.  D. The impact of social media on our language.55. With the mention of Brexit and Trump, the author intends to ______.  A. inform the reader of the origin of the word “clicktivism”  B. show the influences of current affairs on the English language  C. highlight two major political events that changed the world  D. explain what kind of new words can make it into a dictionary56.The underlined word “coin” in the second-to-last paragraph probably means _______.   A. use     B. record   C. change     D. create57. According to Stevenson, to make the words you invent popular, they should _______.  A. be easy to remember       B. have unique meanings  C. reflect the changing world   D. be meaningful, expressive and catchy
C
    Every year, hundreds of millions of Monarch Butterflies(黑脉金斑蝶) from Canada and the United States journey as far as 2, 500 miles to the forests of Michoacan, Mexico, a place which has the world’s largest insect migration(迁移. It’s such a breathtaking sight, but as always, human greed is threatening to destroy it.
    The Monarch Butterflies start to arrive in Michoacan in late October to make their winter home in the trees high up in the mountains of the natural reserve. Once there, they gather together in large masses. These masses often become so heavy that they cause tree branches to bend or even break. But there’s a purpose of all these massing — it allows the butterflies to survive in the low nighttime temperatures at these high altitudes.
    The Michoacan Monarch Butterfly Sanctuary is most impressive during the months of February and March, just before the winged insects begin their long journey home. 
Mexico’s Butterfly Forest is a shelter protected by law, and one of the country’s most popular sights, but that hasn’t stopped people from slowly but steadily destroying it.
Illegal woodcutting in the heart of the Monarch Butterfly Biosphere Reserve has been a longstanding problem, but criminals are rarely brought to justice. They are often set free after paying some money.
    Just last month, an even greater threat rose in Michoacan’s butterfly home.  The country’s largest mining corporation gained the right to reopen an old mine in the heart of the monarch reserve. Experts believe that if the mine is reopened, it will likely spell the end of this magical place.
    And as if all this wasn’t bad enough, the increasing use of herbicides(除草剂) in the American corn belt has led to the decrease of  a plant which is essential to the monarchs’ development from egg into butterfly.
58. When do the Monarch Butterflies fly back to Canada?
  A. In January.    		B. In March.  	C. In October.   	D. In December.
59. What does the underlined word "" Monarch Butterflies in Mexico?
  A. It is very satisfying.             B. It should be strengthened. 
  C. It cost the government a lot.      D. It has saved many butterflies.  
61. What can we infer from the last two paragraphs?
  A. Monarch Butterflies have a worrying future.   
  B. America has many mines waiting for exploration.
  C. Monarch Butterflies live in the centre of an old mine.
  D. The use of herbicides will let Monarch Butterflies lay fewer eggs.
D
    It happened to me recently. I was telling someone how much I had enjoyed reading Barack Obama's Dreams From My Father and how it had changed my views of our President.A friend I was talking to agreed with me that it was,in his words,"a brilliantly (精彩地)written book".However,he then went on to talk about Mr.Obama in a way which suggested he had no idea of his background at all.I sensed that I was talking to a book liar.
    And it seems that my friend is not the only one.Approximately two thirds of people have lied about reading a book which they haven't.In the World Book Day's"Report on Guilty Secrets",Dreams From My Father is at number 9.The report lists ten books,and various authors,which people have lied about reading,and as I'm not one to lie too often (I'd hate to be caught out),I'll admit here and now that I haven't read the entire top ten.But I am pleased to say that,unlike 42percent of people,I have read the book at number one,George Orwell's 1984.I think it's really brilliant.
    The World Book Day report also has some other interesting information in it.It says that many people lie about having read Jane Austen,Charles Dickens,Fyodor Dostoevsky (I haven't read him,but haven't lied about it either) and Herman Melville.
    Asked why they lied,the most common reason was to"impress"someone they were speaking to.This could be tricky if the conversation became more in﹣depth!
    But when asked which authors they actually enjoy,people named J.K.Rowling,John Grisham,Sophie Kinsella (ah,the big sellers,in other words).Forty﹣two percent of people asked admitted they turned to the back of the book to read the end before finishing the story (I'll come clean:I do this and am astonished that 58percent said they had never done so).
62. How did the author find his friend a book liar?  
  A. By judging his manner of speaking.   B.By looking into his background.
  C. By mentioning a famous name.       D. By discussing the book itself.
63. Which of the following is a"guilty secret"according to the World Book Day report?  
  A. Charles Dickens is very low on the top﹣ten list.
  B.42% of people pretended to have read 1984.
  C. The author admitted having read 9books.
  D.Dreams From My Father is hardly read.
64.By lying about reading,a person hopes to ___________________.
  A.control the conversation           B.appear knowledgeable
  C.learn about the book              D.make more friends
65. What is the author's attitude to 58% of readers?      .
  A.Favorable.   B.Uncaring    C.Doubtful    D.Friendly.

would make people laugh.
Some may wonder why jokes exist. Well, there is a saying that laughter is the best medicine. Recent studies show that laughter reduces the amount of stress hormones and strengthens the immune system. Besides, it is just fun to be happy. People love to laugh. That is why efforts were needed to achieve that goal. Thus, jokes were born. According to a research, the oldest form of jokes that people know of is a practical joke.
There are many types of jokes. There are simple extremely funny one-liners(俏皮话). Some jokes appear in question type. You might have already heard of the ever famous “Why did that chicken cross the road?” joke. Most jokes are stories which contain characters that do funny things. These characters are from which people can relate to. It may involve characters with different occupations, races, religions, and political views. It is because there are a lot of funny things you could see from people’s differences. A story between a man and a woman would be funny because of these differences. That is why there are a lot of jokes that contain a husband and a wife.
The most famous type of jokes is the “knock-knock joke”. A knock-knock joke is a joke that contains word play. This is different from other jokes because it requires the participation of the joker and the other person. It has a protocol(协议) that the one who made the joke must knock first and the second person would ask “who’s there”. The joker would then introduce the punch line which is relation or irony of words. You often hear knock-knock jokes because they are simple to create.

Most practical jokes embarrass the victims. Practical jokes are funny. But you have to place it in a proper place and a proper time. And obviously, April Fool’s Day would be a good day to use pranks.

七、书面表达(15分)
  One possible version:
Recently our school has had a survey on reading. It shows that 45 percent of the students spend their time reading textbooks after school. 30 percent of the students choose to read cartoons in their leisure time. However, only 10 percent enjoy reading literature.
Why are so many students unwilling to spend some time in reading serious works? According to the survey, 48 percent of the students say they have no enough time because they have too much homework to do. Some complain that literature works are so thick that they have hardly enough patience to finish them. Others who only concentrate on how to get high scores simply admit that reading literature won’t help them at all with their exams.
As far as I’m concerned, books play an important role in our life. Literature works help us learn the customs and cultures in the past and at present, at home and aboard. It provides us with good examples of writing.
