第二部分阅读理解(共两节,满分35分)

第一节(共10小题;每小题2.5分,满分25分)

阅读下列短文,从每题所给的A、B、C和D四个选项中,选出最佳选项,并在答题纸上将该项涂黑。

A

“My wife of 24 years, Marie Roberts, was raised in New York City, worked in the fashion industry, and never got her hands dirty,” said Keith Roberts. “Then, nine years ago, I wanted to move to Florida and reconnect to my country life, but how would I inspire(激发)the same feeling in, well, a city woman? I brought her a two-month-old potbellied pig.”

At first sight, Marie, then 46, was smitten. So soon she took in another abandoned(遗弃)pig. And thus began Sugarloaf Mountain Farm, her animal shelter in central Florida. With the couple’s two children grown up, these animals would now be Marie’s babies.

The Farm now has 300 rescues, from alpacas to donkeys, eac h with its own story. “A gentleman had a litter of eight pigs, and all but one died,” says Marie. “She weighed one pound and suffered great pain. For three weeks straight, I fed that baby every hour, day and night, seldom sleeping.” Till now, Marie still g ets five to ten requests a day to save animals and has to turn most down. “If she can’t rescue the animal, she works with that person to find a solution,” Keith says. “She’s not only saving animals; above all, she’s giving their owners peace of mind.”

“A woman called from her nursing home,” Marie remembers. “Her pigs would be abandoned if she couldn’t find a suitable home. ‘I only have a few months, and I need to know that they’ll be safe,’ she said.” So Marie drove three hours and got them. Soon after, Mar ie received a note from the woman’s daughter. “Dear Marie,” she wrote. “My mom went peacefully, as she went knowing that they are forever loved. Thank you for being Mom’s angel.”

“She is a ball of energy,” Keith adds. “A few times she’s gone so far in some situations, like when she locked herself in the chicken coop(鸡舍). I found her sitting in it with ten chicks nestled in her lap.” That is exactly what you’d expect from a true mother hen.

21. Why did Keith give Marie a little pig?

A. To help her get used to her new job.

B. To help her grow fond of animals.

C. To help her get away from loneliness.

D. To help her connected with country life.

22. The underlined word “smitten” in Paragraph 2 can be replaced by ________.

A. attracted

B. puzzled

C. disturbed

D. frightened

23. Marie accepted the dying woman’s request because ________.

A. she felt sorry for the woman

B. she wished to bring peace to the woman

C. she never refused to help others

D. she wanted to have more pets on her farm

B

According to a new study ,a smiley face emoji(笑脸符)in work-related e-mails may not create a positive impression and could even weaken information sharing. In formal business emails, a smiley is not a smile.

In one of the experiments, people were asked to read a work-related e-mail from an unknown person and then tell about both the ability and warmth of that person. Before that, they all received similar messages. But some included smileys while others did not. The results suggested that contrary to face-to-face smiles, which increase both ability and warmth, the smileys in a business e-mail had no effect on the perception(感知)of warmth, and in fact had a bad effect on the perception of ability. The perceptions of low ability in tum weakened information sharing.

In another experiment, the use of a smiley was compared to a smiling or neutral photograph. The findings showed that in the case(情况)of a photograph, a smiling sender was judged to be more able and friendly than a neutral one. However, when an e-mail on formal work-related maters included a smiley, the sender was thought to be less able. The smiley did not influence the opinion on the sender’s friendliness.

“People are easy to accept that a smiley equals a real smile, but the findings of this study show that in the workplace, this seems not the case, especially when first communications are concerned.” Dr. Glikson says. “In such a situation, it is better not to use smileys to people at whatever age. Smileys could hardly be a wise choice to a person you are not famil iar with.”

24. What are the new findings of a smiley face emoji in formal emails?

A. It improves the perception of warmth.

B. It makes communication weak.

C. It leaves a good impression on receivers.

D. It shows less friendliness of senders.

25. According to Glikson, ________ is a concern before using smileys in emails.

A. the ending of the email

B. the topic of the email

C. the relation with the receiver

D. the age of the receiver

26. How does the author try to argue the case of smileys?

A. By introducing the history of smileys.

B. By explaining the uses of smileys.

C. By showing the results of experiments.

D. By comparing the opinions of experts.

27. Where does the text probably come from?

A. A science magazine.

B. A personal blog.

C. A tour guide.

D. A news report.

C

Are you looking for a different place to visit this summer? Why not take a magical trip to an Earth-size planet beyond our solar system with NASA’s Planet Travel Center?

We live in a universe full of planets outside our solar system. Unluckily, even the nearest of those planets are light-years away, so sending spaceships and humans to these attracting worlds remains a distant dream. But on NASA’s Planet Exploration website, you can start a journey on an imagined globe of a new world through 360-degree visualization(可视化). As you land onto each globe’s ground, you’ll discover amazing views, like the blood-red sky of TRAPPIST-1d, or stand on a moon of the huge planet Kepler-16b, which appears larger than either of the planet’s two suns. The view from each planet's ground is an artist’s impression based on the limited information that is reachable; no real photos of these planets exist.

The newest planet with such 360-degree visualization is Kepler-186f, an Earth-size planet rounding a star much cooler and redder than the Sun. “Kepler-186f is also so distant, and it is till now impossible to recognize their atmospheres—if they exist at all—or characterize their atmospheric qualities,” said Martin Still, scientist for NASA’s newest space-based planet-hunting

program, wondering people’s reaction to their creation. “Though with such challenges unsettled, using the NASA visualization tool, you can see how the existence and disappearing of an atmosphere would change the vi ew of the sky from the planet’s ground.” Still added.

Aaron, head of Planet Travel Center, points out that their present and future schedules of the globe visualization will find the nearest planets to our solar system and characterize their atmospheres, b ridging the gap between our imagination and what’s really out there. In the near future, all the 360-degree visualizations are viewable on desktop and mobile devices, like smartphones, allowing all readers a wonderful enjoyment from the possibilities of a new world.

28. With NASA’s Planet Travel Center, you can ________.

A. take photos of unknown planets

B. gain knowledge of the solar system

C. travel into the universe by spaceship

D. explore a created world of far planets

29. What can we learn about NASA’s latest 360-degree visualization?

A. It already wins wide praise.

B. It still needs improvement.

C. It uses the newest photos of Kepler-186f.

D. It shows a redder sky on Kepler-16b.

30. What is Aaron’s attitude towards the future of the globe vis ualization?

A. Doubtful.

B. Unconcerned.

C. Worried.

D. Hopeful.

根据短文内容,从短文后的选项中选出能填入空白处的最佳选项。选项中有两项为多余选项。

Four Ways to Give Truly Meaningful Gifts

Buying someone you love a gift that expresses your truest feelings isn’t always e asy. But when you get it right, the joy they show is worth it. 31

●Listen up.

While you may think it’s a great idea to surprise someone by giving them something you think is meaningful, it’s best to get them exactly what they have told you. For example, you heard friends say they wanted the newest bike but you bought them a gym membership instead. 32 So get them what they’ve specially asked for.

●33

In the spirit of showing love, we might go big. However, we may not be thinking of what really makes the person happy. You might think buying your father the latest TV is perfect, but

then when you get it home, it lights up the living room like a stadium and is totally wrong for the space. So think smart.

●Keep it open.

Many of us may consider giving cash impersonal(没人情味的). But this may save you some concern. The receiver can be allowed to choose whatever they want. In a recent survey of over 7,000 Black Friday shoppers, 39 percent said the receiver they were shopping for was “picky(挑剔)”. 34

●Create an experience.

Visit websites where you can get the latest tickets for a play, buy a surf lesson, or even something unexpected like a flight lesson. 35 For example, if your kids are into NASCAR, just imagine the look on their faces when you score them a ride at a race car driving school. So give them a time that they will remember to heart.

A. Ignore the size.

B. Go for something big.

C. Well, that was the wrong move.

D .If possible, cut down the cost of the gifts.

E. These are things that can create a lasting memory.

F. Here’s how to discover a gift your receiver will lov e.

G. So save yourself the second guess and give cash instead.
