阅读下列短文，从每题所给的四个选项(A, B, C和D)中选出最佳选项，并在答题卡上将该项涂黑。
It’s 5:00 in the morning when the alarm rings in my ears. I roll out of bed and walk blindly through the dark into the bathroom. I turn on the light and put on my glasses. The house is still as I walk downstairs while my husband and three kids sleep peacefully. Usually I go for a long run, but today I choose my favorite exercise DVD, Insanity.（疯狂60天健身） Sweat pours down my face and into my eyes. My heart races as I face my body to finish each movement. As I near the end of the exercise, I feel extremely tired, but a smile is on my face. It’s not a smile because the DVD is over, but a smile of success from pushing my body to its extreme limit.
Some people enjoy shopping, smoking , food, work, or even chocolate. But I need exercise to get through each day. Some shake heads when they see me run through the town. Others get hurt when I refuse to try just one bite of their grandmother’s chocolate cake. They raise their eyebrows, surprised by my “no thank you,” or by my choice to have a salad. Over the years , I have learned it’s okay to just say “no.” I shouldn’t feel sorry for refusing food that I don’t want to eat.
So what drives me to roll out of bed at 5:00 a.m.? What gives me the reason to just say no to ice cream? Commitment. A commitment to change my life with a way that reduces daily anxiety, increases self –confidence and energy, extends life and above all improves my body shape. This is the point where a smile appears on my face as I look at myself in the mirror or try on my favorite pair of jeans that now fit just right. It’s through commitment and sweat that I can make a difference within myself inside and out.

People and animals often enjoy loving relationships with each other. When people adopt domesticated(家养的) animals into their families as pets, animals give humans the blessings of companionship and fun in return. In the wild, animals sometimes carry out dramatic rescues of people in dangerous situations, miraculously(奇迹般地) sensing human needs and jumping in without fear to help.
In 2000, a 6-year-old boy named Elian Conzalez left Cuba on a boat bound for Florida in the United States, but the boat sank and everyone aboard drowned except for Elian and two adults. Elian and the other two survivors held onto an inner tube for 48 hours to try to stay afloat in the sea. After a while, however, Elian began to lose strength, slipping under the water and then grabbing the tube again as he fought to stay alive.
A small group of dolphins noticed Elian struggling and swam over to him to help. The dolphins formed a circle around the inner tube and took turns using their noses to lift Elian until fishermen working in the area discovered and rescued Elian and the two adults who floated nearby. The fishermen reported that, when they discovered Elian, he was repeating a prayer that his mother had taught him before drowning, asking guardian angels to protect him.
Miraculously, the dolphins knew that a child would need more help than adults, so they focused on Elian—and they figured out exactly what needed to be done and cooperated to carry out that plan successfully. They made it!
24.Why did Elian slip off the tube?
A. The dolphins helped him. B. He was tired out.
C. The two adults pushed him. D. The tube was too smooth to grab.
25. How did the dolphins save Elian Conzalez?

B. They formed a circle around him.
C. They stopped Elian slipping under the water.
D. They supported the inner tube by turns.
26. Which of the following words can be used to describe Elian Conzalez?
A. Confident and strong. B. Adaptable and aggressive.
C. Friendly and optimistic. D. Determined and lucky
27. What can be the best title for the text?
A. Prayer Doing Wonder.
B. Elian’s Narrow Escape.
C. Animals: Human Beings’ Angels.
D. The Dolphins That Rescued Elian.
Michaela Clovis is a neighbor of mine. Last year, one of her classmates made fun of her hair. “She said it doesn’t look right and doesn’t match my skin,” said Michaela. Michaela is Irish, German, Native American, and African American. She has pale skin and reddish yellow hair, but she is not white.
Soon, a few classmates joined the teasing. Michaela said she felt “small and alone”. But she stopped the teasing without getting angry. Here is how she did it.
First, Michaela talked to her parents. Her mother, Donna, told Michaela’s teacher and also suggested that Michaela not face the teasing alone. Next, Donna told Michaela about the different people in her family, and their love for each other. She taught her that people of all races are beautiful.
“Everyone’s skin or hair color is beautiful and you have to believe that for yourself. You have to learn to be confident and comfortable in your own skin and hair. Forget what your classmates say, as it is just a period most kids go through picking on others because they are different ! Just don’t let it get to you and you will be okay! Be proud of who you are and love yourself for being a kind and generous human being,” Michaela’s mother said.
This made Michaela feel better. After that, Michaela was more confident. The next time she was teased, Michaela said, “I know that I’m proud of it”. She stuck to that answer until the teasing finally ended.
28. Some classmates hurt Michaela by teasing her about her ________
A. hair B. skin C. neighbor D. family
29. What did Michaela first do to deal with the teasing?
A. She told her parents
B. She asked the author for advice
C. She talked to her teacher
D. She believed in herself and kept silent
30. The underlined part “picking on” in paragraph 4 probably means ________.
A. searching for B. laughing at
C.fighting with D. forgetting about
31. What can we learn from this story?
A. Teasing is popular among classmates
B. Students should be taught to love each other
C. People who tease others should be punished
D. It’s possible to end a bad situation without anger
Do you think horseback riding is easy? Well, you are wrong. Horseback riding is one of the most challenging sports in the world today.
As you know, a horse has the instinct to run away when afraid. When he becomes puzzled, he becomes afraid. When your silent communication is confusing, he does not ask you to repeat what you have said. Instead, he runs forward, he jumps to the side, he kicks out, or he freezes in place. Most of the time, however, you won’t know your communication is confusing until it is too late. When he runs forward, you will fall back. When he jumps to side, you will fall the other way. When he kicks out or freezes in place, you will fly over his head.
If you want to be good at horseback riding, you must practice. Being ridden does not come naturally to horses. They have to be trained. For example, to ask them to go forward, you usually tap them with your heels. But, if you get on untrained horses, they won’t know that a tap means go. Instead, they will most likely run around like a wild animal out of fear.
Contrary to popular belief, horseback riding does take skill. If you believe horseback riding doesn’t take skill, you most likely have only ridden at a farm that provides a well-trained horse. To me, that is not actual riding. And although it may seem easy to you, you were not the person to teach that horse that a saddle is not frightening. You were not the person to fall off that same horse at the beginning of his training. When horses are first taught to be ridden, all they do is run, kick out, and rear, which is the act of standing on their back legs only.
32. What does the underlined word “confusing” in paragraph 2 probably mean?
A.embarrassing B. puzzling
C. exciting D. interesting
33. In paragraph 3, the author uses the example to ________.
A. show horses for horseback riding need training
B. prove it is hard to master horseback riding skills
C. prove communication is important in horseback riding
D. show some horses can’t be trained
34. According to the last paragraph, most people believe that ________.
A. training a horse is easy
B. horseback riding is interesting
C. riding a well-trained horse isn’t actual riding
D. horseback riding doesn’t take skill
35. The text is most probably taken from ________.
A. a newspaper report B. a biology textbook
C. a sports magazine D. a research paper
The word “pub” is short for public house. There are around 60,000 pubs in the U.K. One of the oldest pubs, Fighting Cocks in St. Albans, Herts, is located in a building that dates back to the eleventh century.
36 People talk, eat, drink, meet their friends and relax there. Pubs often have tow bars, one usually quieter than the other, and many have a garden where people can sit in summer. 37
Groups of friends normally buy “rounds” of drinks. 38 It is sometimes difficult to get served when pubs are busy: the bar staff will usually try and serve those who have been waiting the longest at the bar first.
Most pubs offer a complete range of beers, local and imported, with German, Belgian and French beers being in demand. 39 As a matter of fact, pubs sell soft drinks, too.
The legal age to purchase alcohol is 18 in the U.K. 40 But they must be with an adult and the adult orders it.
It is illegal to sell alcohol to someone who already appears drunk. Fourteen-year-olds may enter a pub unaccompanied by adults if they order a meal. Children may enter a pub with their parents until 9 p.m., which lets families enjoy reasonably priced pub meals together. And it also allows pubs to play their traditional roles as community centers. Customs in British pubs differ from those in American bars. In most pubs in the U.K., you must go to the bar to order drinks and food and pay for your purchases immediately.
A. Most people might think pubs are places where people simply drink alcohol.
B. The person whose turn it is will buy drinks for all the members of the group.
C. People aged 16 and 17, with the license’s permission, may have only one glass of wine during a meal.
D. In the salon bar the atmosphere is quieter and there are fewer people.
E. Children can go into pub gardens with their parents.
F. Pubs are an important part of British life.
G. British people like drinking beers in pubs.

Aimed at providing a platform for students to exchange and make use of their books, the annual Campus Book Fair will soon be held in our school. The fair will attract a huge crowd from the entire school, who are to sell, purchase and exchange their books with their peers. As a regular visitor, I’ve found myself increasingly drawn by the fair. For one thing, the fair exhibits various books, motivating us to further develop our reading habits and helping to broaden our horizons. For another, most books are sold at a lower price than what the bookstores offer.
Please let me know if you have any suggestions on how to host such a book fair better.
