第二部分:阅读理解(共两节,满分35分)
第一节(共10小题,每题2.5分, 共25分):
阅读下面短文并做每篇后面的题目。从A、B、C、D四个选项中,选出能回答所提问题或完成所给句子的最佳选项。
A
  It’s a safe bet that a robot made your car and made your computer. Pretty soon, they could be making your bed and breakfast too.     Increasingly, engineers are saying that robots are going to move out of research departments and into your home. Companies including General Electric are working on designs for small robots. Products like the Roomba, a robot that can clean floors, are flying off  the shelves.     What’s behind this new robot revolution? It’s partly a matter of technology. Devices that can recognize and respond to a human voice have been developed. There are now a few different ways for robots to move around. They can walk, crawl or ride on wheels. Robots are being made smaller and smaller. They are also becoming more and more able.     A bigger part of the story is on the demand side. From the day the television remote control was invented, people around the world have searched for new ways to be lazy. Take into consideration that more and more people can afford robots, and the time seems ripe to introduce robots to the ordinary family.    To be sure, robots that walk on two legs and talk like people are still a long way off. However, robots that do basic housework such as cleaning or gardening are sure to come out soon. One thing is certain—when these robots do come into our homes, it will change things forever.21. The underlined part “flying off the shelves” in the second paragraph means________.   A. Selling well.                       	B. Cleaning the shelves smartly.   C. Flying freely                	   	    D. Dropping onto the floor
22.Which plays a more important role in revolutionizing the robot? 
   A. Science and technology.             	B. Rapid development of companies.
   C. Effective marketing means.        	    D. Great demand from the buyers.
23. Which of the following statements is TRUE?
   A. Robots have already come into every home.
   B. Technology is the only basis of the development of robots.
   C. General Electric is not interested in designing small robots.   
   D. Robots that can walk on two legs and talk like people are still far from us.    
B
Few of us make money by losing sleep. But three graduate students at Brown University in Providence built a company around sleep deprivation(睡眠不足).
	Jason Donahue, Ben Rubin and Eric Shashoua were working late nights in Brown’s business and engineering schools. They began thinking about ways to sleep better. They discovered they weren’t alone in burning the midnight oil. Around 20% of Americans get less than six hours of rest a night.
	The friends imagined a smart alarm clock that could track how much time people spend in the most restorative(有恢复作用的) stages of the sleep cycle: REM (rapid eye movement) and deep sleep. What would it cost to design such a thing? Five years of research, 20 employees, $14 million and a whole lot of doubting from investors and scientists.
	Their company, Zeo, based in Newton, Mass, launched its product in June, 2009. The Zeo device uses a headband with tiny sensors(传感器) that scan your brain for signs of four sleep states-REM, light, deep and waking sleep. The smart alarm clock displays a graph of your sleep pattern and wakes you as you’re not in REM sleep. In the morning you can upload the data to the company’s Web site, and so track your sleep over time. Most of the feedback(反馈) comes in the form of Zeo’s ZQ score showing how well you’ve slept.
	“Zeo allows people to unlock this black box of sleep,” says Dave Dickinson, a health-care CEO.
	Whether any of this actually improves sleep is up to the consumer, who will also need to make lifestyle changes like cutting out alcohol before bedtime or caffeine after 3 P.M.
	For now the company is selling Zeo online only. Dickinson also plans to spread it to countries such as Australia, where sleep deprivation approaches US levels.
24. Who will support Zeo?
   A. People full of imagination.        	B. People suffering sleeping problems.
   C. People having access to the Internet. 	D. People having bad lifestyles.
25. Why did the three graduate students imagine a smart alarm clock?
   A. To wake them up on time in the morning.
   B. To earn enough money for their study.
   C. To improve the quality of people’s sleep.
   D. To enjoy their life while working at night.
26. To design the Zeo device, the three graduate students ____.
   A. spent much time and money         	B. were widely supported by scientists
   C. worked by themselves all the time   	D. attracted many investors
C
Some people seem easy to understand: their character appears obvious on first meeting. Appearances, however, can be deceptive. I shrug my shoulders when people tell me that their first impressions of a person are always right. For my own part I find that the longer I know people, the more they puzzle me.
I read in this morning’s paper that Edward Hyde Burton had died. He was a businessman and he had been in business in Japan for many years. Once he gave me a great surprise. Unless I had heard the story from his own lips, I’d never have believed that he was capable of such an action. He was always neatly and quietly dressed in accordance with his age and position. He didn’t talk much, but what he said was sensible. You couldn’t imagine he’d possibly raise his voice in anger. Here was a man who attracted you because you felt in him a real love for his fellows. He’d tell with point a good and spicy story, and in his youth he’d been something of an athlete. He was a rich man and he’d made every penny himself. I suppose one thing that made you like him was that he was so weak; he aroused your instincts(本能) of protection. You felt he couldn’t bear to hurt a fly.
	One afternoon Burton told me a “funny” story in a quiet, dry humour:
	“There was a namesake(同名人) of mine, who was the best bridge player I ever met. He  seemed to have a fantastic instinct about the cards. He won a good deal of my money by card-playing.”
“One day he came to me when he lost all his fortune. He came to see me in my office and asked me for a job. I asked him how old he was.”
“ ‘Thirty-five’, he said.”
	“ ‘And what have you been doing ever since ?’ I asked him.”
	“ ‘Well, nothing very much.’ he said.”
	“ ‘I’m afraid I can’t do anything for you just yet’ I said. ‘Come back and see me in another thirty-five years, and I’ll see what I can do.’ ”
“He didn’t move. He went rather pale. He hesitated for a moment and then he told me that he had had bad luck at cards for some time. He lost everything he had. He hadn’t a penny. He was down and out. If he couldn’t get something to do he’d not survive.” 
“I looked at him for a bit. I could see now that he was all to pieces. He’d been drinking more than usual and he looked fifty.” 
“Suddenly I had an idea.” Pausing in his story, Burton turned to me. “When I was young I swam over three miles round the beacon(灯塔) and landed at the river of Tarumi. It’s rather difficult on account of the currents round the beacon. Well, I told my young fellow about it and I said that if he’d do it I’d give him a job.”
“I could see he was rather surprised. He was not in good condition for sports. He looked at me for a moment and then he nodded.”
“I told him I’d drive round to the river at half past twelve and meet him.”
	“ ‘Done,’ he said.”
“I wished him good luck and he left me. I had a lot of work to do that morning and I only just managed to get to the river Tarumi at half past twelve. But I needn’t have hurried; he never turned up.”
	“Did he fear it at the last moment?” I asked.
“No, he didn’t fear it. He started all right. But of course he’d ruined his constitution(体质) by drink. The currents round the beacon were more than he could manage. We didn’t get the body for about three days.”
I didn’t say anything for a moment or two. I was rather shocked. Then I asked.
	“When you made him that offer of a job, did you know he’d be drowned?”
	He looked at me with his kind blue eyes, smiling. “Well, I hadn’t got a position in my office at the moment.”
27. The underlined word “deceptive” may mean         .
	A. puzzling	B. misleading	C. complex      D. impressive
28. For some time, Edward Burton impressed the author most with his        .
 	A. age and position		B. wealth and ability
	C. sensibility and humor	D. kindness and weakness
29. We can infer from Burton’s story that his namesake         .
	A. never saw through his trick	B. annoyed him by playing cards
	C. could not do any job well	D. intended to cheat him with a lie
30. We learned from the story that Edward Burton       .
 	A. knew the young man would kill himself  B. arranged the end of his namesake’s life
	C. did much for the poor fellowman       D. killed his card-friend by mistake

For some people, the warmest memories from childhood come from being read a great story.__31__ It develops children's language skills and increases their ability to succeed in school and, later, work.
A new report by the American Academy of Pediatrics says reading aloud is so important that parents should start as soon as their children are born and continue to read aloud even after their children can read by themselves. They say parents should also point to and talk about pictures in books for infants(婴幼儿).__32__
The company Scholastic is a major US publisher of children's books. Every two years, Scholastic publishes a report on American reading attitudes and habits. The 2015 report says only 31 percent of children in the US read a book for fun almost every day.
__33__ One is simply to have books in the home. Elizabeth Lyttleton, the mother of three, is lucky. Her mother once wrote and illustrated children's books, so the family always have plenty to read. She says all her children learn from books---but in different ways.__34__ Researchers from the Scholastic company found that 80% of children surveyed of all ages say they love being read to. And children ages 6 to 11 whose parents do not read to them anymore say they miss it.
__35__ Of all the 6- to 17-year-olds in the Scholastic study, more than 90% said their favorite books are the ones they chose for themselves.
A. The Scholastic report also suggests permitting children to choose their own books.
B. Scholastic also identifies some ways to develop a love of reading in a child. 
C. A book does not have to be serious to be good for kids.
D. For young children, parents should ask questions about the book.
E. Do children still read for fun?
F. Another way to develop a reading habit in children is to read to them.
G But reading to children does more than create warm memories.

  After 21 years of marriage, my wife wanted me to take another woman out to dinner and a movie. It’s hard to imagine that the other woman was my mother, who has been a widow for 19 years, but I am too busy to visit her often. That night I called to invite her to go out for dinner and a movie.
“What’s wrong? Are you well?” she asked. My mother is the type of woman who suspect that a late night call or a surprise invitation is a sign of bad news.
“I thought that it would be pleasant to spend some time with you,” I responded. “Just the two of us.”
That Friday after work, as I drove over to pick her up, I was a bit nervous. When I arrived at her house, I noticed that she, too, seemed to be nervous about our date. She waited in the door with her coat on. She had curled her hair and was wearing the dress that she had worn to celebrate her last wedding anniversary. She smiled from a face that was as beautiful as an angel’s.
“I told my friends that I was going to go out with my son, and they were impressed,” she said, as she got into the car. “They can’t wait to hear about our meeting.”
We went to a restaurant that, although not elegant, was very nice and cozy. My mother took my arm as if she were the First Lady. After we sat down, I had to read the menu. Her eyes could only read large print. Halfway through the entries, I lifted my eyes and saw Mom sitting there staring at me with a smile on her lips.
“It was I who used to have to read the menu when you were small,” she said.
“Then it’s time you relax and let me return the favor,” I responded.
During the dinner, we had an agreeable conversation---nothing extraordinary but catching up on recent events of each other’ s life. We talked so much that we missed the movie.

Paragraph 1:
  As we arrived at her house later, she said, “I’ll go out with you again, but only if you let me invite you,” I agreed.____________________________________________________________

Paragraph 2:
  At that moment I understood the importance of saying, “I LOVE YOU.”________________________________________________________________________

Dear Jack,
  I’m glad to know that you’re interested in Chinese Bridge Contest and want to learn more about the Chinese language and culture.
  To learn the Chinese language and culture well, first of all, you have to read some classical literature, which will broaden your horizon. Besides, watching TV programs and reading newspapers are also good ways of language learning. Last but not least, you are supposed to make some Chinese friends with whom you can communicate frequently. Only by doing so can you achieve your goal.
                                                                        Yours,

She said when she was young, she was very naughty, and her mother often punished her for her wrong deeds. Later when she grew up she became aware of her mother’s heart. But her mother died of lung cancer and she never had time to thank her. So she decided to invite my mother for me to eat out. I kissed her with my eyes full of tears.

Paragraph 2:
  At that moment I understood the importance of saying, in time, “I LOVE YOU,” I thanked my wife and that dinner date was another time for me to remember. You could hardly imagine how happy I am to have the chance to say these words and return the favor in time. Nothing in the world is more important than this.
