1China has vowed to develop its capital market and broaden direct financing channels to curb【抑制】 enterprises' heavy reliance on bank credit.

2The overly rapid appreciation【增值】 of the RMB could be a double-edged sword; and experts are divided有分歧的 on the issue.

3However, other experts believe that overly rapid appreciation poses a risk to China's double-digit economic growth – a large portion of which had been driven by exports. As export growth has slowed and import growth has picked up, the trade picture has begun to shift.

China's economy is now shifting to one driven by consumption. In the meantime, the rising purchasing power among Chinese people means a greater demand for high-end products.

A(08泰州市田家炳实验中学测试)

Dr. Hausman is a hair detective. Once a mountain lion killed a thirteen - year- old boy. The town offered a reward of thousand dollars for anyone who would kill the lion.

      One day an excited hunter came to the town to say that he had killed the mountain lion. As proof that he had killed the right animal, he showed a ball of human hair. He said he had taken the hair from the stomach of the mountain lion.

      However, another hunter soon showed up to claim (索要) the reward. He too had a ball of human hair that he said he had taken from the dead lion' s stomach. The town did not know which man to pay. Maybe neither one had killed the right mountain lion. To settle the argument, they decided to turn the whole thing over to Dr. Hausman.

      Dr. Hausman studied the hair and reported that the second hunter should be paid. The hair in the stomach of the mountain lion he had killed matched the hair of the boy. The whole town was relieved to know for sure that the killer had been found.

      There are other kinds of detectives who do not wear a uniform, like Hausman, solve endless mysteries every year. There is, for example, the dust detective. Tiny bits of dust stick to your clothes, your fingernails, your hair, or your shoes. They catch in your nose and in your ears. They tell where you have been and what you have done lately. The dust detective often helps catch a criminal by proving that he has been on the scene of the crime.

      Then there is the wood detective. By studying a piece of wood he can tell what kind of tree the piece of wood came from. He can tell where it was grown, and how old it is. He can even tell you what the weather was like at a certain place the year Columbus landed in America. The growth rings on a tree tell him.

56. According to the selection, by studying a piece of wood, a wood detective can tell you ______.

A. what the weather was like the year Columbus landed in America

B. what the weather was like last year in the mountain

C. what the weather was like last month in your hometown

D. what kind of tree the piece of wood came from

57 . Endless mysteries are solved every year by ______.

A. detectives who like Hausman                        B. detectives like Hausman

C. other kinds of detectives who like Hausmam            D. detectives Dr. Hausman likes

58. What does the underlined word "they" (Para. 5) mean?

A. Your clothes.     B. Your fingernails.     C. Tiny bits of dust.     D. Your shoes.

59. It is implied in the selection that it is most important for a criminal ______.

A. to prove that he has been on the scene of the crime

B. to prove that he has not been on the scene of the crime

C. to tell the detective what he has done lately.

D. to show the detective his nose and his ears

Like most July days, it was hot. I stepped into a tiny ice-cream shop to cool off with a chocolate ice-cream. It was a very __11___  store with little round tables and chairs.

"Poor woman," I thought. "What does she get out of life? Why does God let people live so long past their youth?"

As I thought, another  __14___  lady entered the shop and sat down with her. Soon the two of them were talking about childhood days. They talked of how little the shop had __15___ in 70 years. In minutes,the two of them were shaking with laughter.

13.BA 14.CD 15.BA

 

BEDAC

 

36. 【解析】D。联系全句,可知作者在此谈论尽早做自己喜欢做的工作的必要性。A项有一定干扰性,从第二段作者所举的例子(一个想成为艺术家的人)我们可以看出,作者认为无论是兼职,还是不拿报酬做自己喜欢的工作都是有必要的。

37. 【解析】A。从下文的“WellI just don’t have the work relative to  38   (physics)I should give up on it ...”得知,Albert Einstein起初没有得到做物理教授的工作。

38. 【解析】Crelative to在这里是……有关的意思。Einstein没能找到做物理教授的工作,他觉得自己不适合物理方面的工作。

39. 【解析】Binstead在这里相当于instead of getting a job as a physics professor

40. 【解析】AC项有一定干扰性,while employed等于while he was employed。在时间状语从句或条件状语从句中,从句的主语如果与主句主语一致,且谓语含有动词be,可以省略主语和动词beC项显然不符合这一规则。

41. 【解析】Athe inventionsEinstein的两项理论的发明。

42. 【解析】C。从前文我们得知,Einstein起初想做物理教授,没有哪个大学想要他。现在他出名了,没有哪所重点大学不想要他。

43. 【解析】B。从后文“…supporting(养活) yourself by waiting tables"可知,以艺术为自己的工作时,做饭店服务员只是为了挣钱养活自己。

44. 【解析】Cwho在这里代表a waiter,本句的意思是不要把自己看成一个有一天能成为艺术家的饭店服务员。显然作者认为,你应该把自己看成艺术家,而不是服务员。

45. 【解析】Dthat在这里指认为自己是一个有一天能成为艺术家的服务员work成为艺术家,本句的意思是那只能让你喜欢的工作(成为艺术家)留在遥远的将来。

46. 【解析】Arather在这里表示否定,相当于instead。注意本句的结构:supporting yourself by waiting tables为状语,think yourself as an artist… and paintor draw为句子的主要部分,and前后的动词为顺接,因此A项为最佳选项。

47. 【解析】B一星期做24小时的服务员也许能挣到生存的薪水。”possible在这里表示可能性。其它选项不合题意。

48. 【解析】C一星期只做24小时服务员,那就会给自己留下足够的时间投身于培训或提高手艺。

49. 【解析】Doff在这里用作形容词,意思是其余的。整个第二段以“working as an artistwhile supporting yourself by waiting tables”为例说明作者开头所提出的"Begin doing the work you love as soon as possibleeven if you don’t get paid for it, or you can only work at it part-time.”

50. 【解析】A。分析本句结构是选对此空的关键。while seeking the work you love是时间状语从句,you lovethat you love,作定语修饰work,因此it helps to…为主句。it为形式主语,真正的主语是不定式,help在这里是有帮助,起作用的意思。

51. 【解析】C。从下一句“Having opened  52  (all) the possibilitiesyou can make a final  53  (decision) and select the work you love as your own可知作者在此认为你不应该把自己局限到(1imited to)你应该是什么或已成为什么的观念上。

52. 【解析】B。从空后的you can make a final  53  (decision)得此答案。

53. 【解析】A。先是打开所有的可能,然后作出最终决定,最后选出最喜欢的。

54. 【解析】B做你所喜欢的工作要求你把想象和实际平等对待。

55. 【解析】B。从后文我们得知the imaginativebig dreams,而the practicalall the little details

 

 

 

 

答案及解析:

56D. 细节题。从最后一段,第二句话得知通过研究一块木头,树木专家可辨认出它的来历。

57B. 细节题。答案在倒数第二段,第一句话还有一种不穿制服的专家,像Hausman一样揭开无数迷底。

58C. 指代关系。从它前边两句话很容易判断.也就是细小的灰尘可证明你去过的地方,也能证明你做了什么事.they指细小灰尘。

59A. 推理题。根据文章倒数第二段可得出结论。也就是灰尘颗粒专家一般通过证明嫌疑犯到过犯罪现场,来协助断案。

 

 

本文讲述了作者在一个小冰激凌店吃冰激凌时,从一位老太太身上引发的对生命的感悟。

11. A 根据第四段中两位老人的对话“……in 70 years”可知这个冰激凌店已经非常古老,故用old修饰。

12. D 指老人的“背(back)”严重弯曲,而不是head头,chest胸膛或者neck脖子弯曲。

13. B 由语境知,老人的背严重弯曲使得她的脸几乎碰撞到桌子上部。hit(碰撞)的含义最为贴切,最符合语境。比较其它选项:connected连接;touched接触;joined连接,加入。

14. C 前面已经介绍了一个老人,这里用的是another,所以可以推出是一位老人。同时由后文Soon the two of them were talking about childhood days可知,又是一位老人aged lady

15. A 指这家冰激凌店70年来几乎没什么变化(changed)其它的都不符合文意。

16. C 由后句可知,“我”看到了“我”自己,所以选mirror镜子。

17. D 由语境知,从镜子中“我”将自己与第一位老人作对比;再结合后面的She was laughing, smiling可以推出“我”的心情是与之相反的,所以是sad

18. C 根据对比,“我”的生活经历零散,她却拥有很多“奇妙的(wonderful)”回忆。

19. A 从前句知,“我”孤单地坐着,她却和好友在一起。表示与人同享美妙的事物,用share最贴切,所以此处选A sharing;比较其它选项:spending花费,消耗,度过,没有share语意丰富;killingsparing与文意不相关。

20. D 结合语境,“我”内心里不希望自己变老,她已经老了,但老并没有伤害到她。secretly秘密地,暗地里,最能贴切地表达“我”的心理。
