   Some citizens told reporters that some do summer homework for students on line and those who do homework for them are mostly college students, who reveal that they are well paid by doing homework for others. The phenomenon has aroused different opinions . In many students' view, there is so much homework that they have no choice but to ask others to do it but parents strongly oppose the behaviour, saying that it will affect the children's studies. Some teachers suggest summer homework should vary from student to student, thus not only helping them a little but also lessening their study burden. Some experts believe that doing homework for others does great harm to students and that teachers should give as little homework as possible and let the students have enough rest during the summer vacation instead of regarding summer vacation as the extension of the learning semester. 




   Two brothers had a small misunderstanding at first but grew into a conflict. A carpenter who happened to look for a job make them reunited by building a bridge stretching from one side of the stream to the other.

The existence of misunderstanding is natural. People do not trust each other or know nothing about each other’s attitude and personality. Or one side subjectively thinks the other side has done something wrong. Or one side’s interests, reputation or health have been hurt by the other side. Misunderstandings thus come about.

One incident is vivid in my mind. It happened when I was in senior one . One day I found one of my favourite books missing. I asked my deskmate whether she had taken it with her since she loved to trick me. On hearing what I said, she got very angry and burst into tears. Did I misunderstand her or wrong her? Yes, the next day, another classmate sitting behind us was interested in my book and took it from my desk without my permission. Knowing the truth, I sincerely apologized to my deskmate for my wronging her. She smiled away her tears and we at last made up after the slight misunderstanding.

When misunderstandings are between us and strangers, we should find the point through frank conversations and solve it face to face. The problem will no longer exist and a modest relationship is recovered. But the most common is misunderstanding between friends, classmates or family members who provide you with the helping hand when you are in need, company you when you are depressed, bless you when you are in happiness. So, a tolerant, sincere and considerate heart is in need to bridge the gap separating you. Anyway, communication is the best way to melt the ice of misunderstanding.





1.C。下文有提示laughed at his physical appearance。同词复现。

10.B。该句的主语是history,历史有一个功能是纪念和缅怀历史人物,因此用remember sb as比较贴切。

[文章大意] 远离家人和朋友,作者步入了大学的校园。本文讲述了她作为一名大一新生的经历和感受。

36. C。细节理解题。根据第二段“Leaving home and some of my closest friends was one of the hardest things I ever did.”可知,作者舍不得离开家和朋友。

37. D。推理判断题。根据第三段“Combining two people with different backgrounds into one room can be tough.”可知,作者认为让两个背景不同的人在同一个屋檐下相处是件困难的事情。因此可以推知,作者起初可能觉得很难和她的室友融洽相处。

38. A。细节理解题。根据第四段“I had tons of work ... But no one told me what to do or when to do it. This is very much unlike things in high school, where the teacher gives a task with a week-long deadline and step-by-step guidelines. College is very different from high school or home where rules are set and you are able to achieve things easily just by following them.”可知,在大学,学生有很多事情要做,但没有人告诉他们该怎么做,什么时候做,而在高中,只要按照老师的指导就能轻松地完成任务。因此可知,大学要求学生更加具备自我指引的能力。

39. A。推理判断题。根据最后一段“A freshman in college may experience doubts, fears and even tears but now I know that having them at first is better than not experiencing them at all.”可知,作者认为大一新生可能会经历疑惑,恐惧和流泪,但经历过这些总比根本没有经历过要好。因此可以推知,在作者看来,大一新生的恐惧感是有益处的。

40. B。细节理解题。根据第一段“At first it seemed a dream, but after a couple of weeks, I knew I was beginning a new adventure in college.”可知,作者认为在大学求学是一次探险;再根据文章最后一句“... and now I am walking fearlessly in this unknown adventure.”可知,现在作者正无畏地在这次探险中前行。因此可知,作者撰写此文时还在上大学。



41.D。 细节理解题。根据第一段最后一句So politeness can first of all be regarded as a phenomenon, an observable social phenomenon. 可得知答案。

.42. C。细节理解题。根据第二段...we should dig into the depth where different cultural values are rooted.可得知答案。

43. B。词义猜测题。根据后面ignoring the fact of the compliment paid to him.可知这里“denigrate”是“贬低”的意思。

44. C。细节理解题。根据第三段but a Chinese speaker would try to deny the truth of the compliment.以及the Chinese speaker is showing modesty by denigrating himself, ignoring the fact of the compliment paid to him. 可得知C选项正确。

45. B。作者意图题。作者只是客观地讲述了中国人和西方人的各自特点。



46. A。推理判断题。根据下文给出的例子可知,当人们边走边接电话时,他们不看别人,不与人打招呼,注意不到别人的孩子,也不停下来抚摸别人的宠物。打电话的人完全无视别人的存在。故作者“感到被冷落了”。

47. D。细节理解题。根据第三段“Every advance in communications technology limits the intimacy of human contact.”可知,通讯技术上的每一次进步都进一步阻碍了人和人之间的亲密(交流)。

48. B。细节理解题。根据第四段“As almost all possible contact among human beings gets automated, people feel lonelier.”可知,当几乎每一次人类之间的可能的沟通(机会)变得自动化时,人会感到更孤独。文中举出超市连锁店的例子也是为此给出证明。

49. C。推理判断题。根据最后一段“Giving them up isn’t a choice—they are great for what they are intended to do. It’s their unexpected consequences that make me move back.”可知,放弃先进的通讯设备对作者来说不是一个好的选择,它们本身并没有错,但是它们造成的出乎意料的结果使作者望而却步。由此可推知,作者认为先进的通讯技术是一把双刃剑。

50. C。主旨大意题。作者通过自身的经历阐述了现今通讯技术带给人们的负面影响——人和人的距离越来越远,甚至让人感到更加孤独。故这篇文章阐述对现代通讯科技的不满。

53. B。推理判断题。根据Spacecraft orbiting Mars have shown what appear to be rivers, lakebeds and mineral deposits. These pictures suggest that, at one time, water did flow there. Mars Rover vehicles and other spacecraft have confirmed the information. 可推知。

54. B。细节理解题。根据最后一段Its name came from the place in Antarctica where it was found in 1984. 可得知答案。

55. D。这是一篇科技新闻报道。



56. B。恐龙Buddy怀着好奇心与兄弟姐妹到外面的世界去了解其他生物。随着问题的出现Buddy想要有所发现来解决他所面临的科学问题,与B中所给的信息“Young dinosaur’s travels teach kids science.”相匹配。
