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，并涂在答题 卡上。
A You and your friends are settling into your seats. The new Spider-Man movie is about to start and you’ve got the snacks: soda and popcorn. Food is part of what makes the movies fun.
Just as the lights go out, you catch a slight smell of … tuna fish? You turn your head, searching for the source. Then you spot him: A couple rows back, some guy is enjoying a tuna fish sandwich. How’d he get that in here? You wonder. Then you remember how much you paid for your snacks.
What invites the unwelcome outside food is probably the price. Why pay $ 5 for a bag of M&Ms when you can get them for a dollar at the corner store?
Earlier this year, a Michigan man decided to fight for his right to snack. Joshua Thompson is suing his local theater after it banned outside food. He argues the ban breaks a Michigan law that prevents businesses from charging extremely high prices. However, most legal experts believe Thompson has little chance of winning his case, though he does have a point: 85 cents out of a dollar of treats a movie theater sells
is pure profit.
The truth is that movie theaters are more in the snack business than the movie
business. A huge part of the ticket income goes to the Hollywood studio. This makes
sense, since the studios have to pay the costs of movie production and advertising.
But that often doesn’t leave much cash for the theater, which also has its own running
costs. If customers stopped buying food, owners would have to raise ticket prices
Of course, there’s another reason to think twice before bringing food into the
movies: It’s against the rules. Breaking those rules can have unpleasant consequences
too. Some theaters will kick you out if they catch you. Even without the threat of
punishment, we should follow rules all the time------out of respect.
Here’s a good idea: Eat before the movie.
21. What is the topic of the text?
A. Movie Theaters’ Ban on Outside Food.
B. A Michigan Man’s Fight for His Right.
C. The Pleasure of Enjoying Snacks.
D. Bad Manners in Movie Theaters.
22. What do we know about Joshua Thompson?
A. He broke a Michigan law.
B. He was forbidden to have snacks at the theaters.
C. He thinks cinema tickets are too expensive.
D. He is likely to lose the case.
23. In Paragraph 5, the author mainly explains _________.
A. how movie studios work with movie theaters
B. why snack sales are important to movie theaters
C. why Hollywood studios must pay high costs
D. how movie theaters reduce their operating costs
24. How does the author feel about bringing outside food into the cinema?
A. It is great fun.
B. It is convenient.
C. It is unacceptable.
D. It is lawful.
B English is the most widely used language in the history of our planet. One in every seven human beings can speak it. More than half of the world’s books and three quarters of international mail are in English. Of all languages, English has the largest vocabulary — perhaps as many as two million words. However, let’s face it: English is a crazy language. There is no egg in an eggplant, neither pine nor apple in a pineapple and no ham in a hamburger. Sweetmeats are candy, while sweetbreads, which aren’t sweet, are meat. We take English for granted. But when we explore its paradoxes, we find that quicksand can work slowly, boxing rings are square, public bathrooms have no baths in them. And why is it that a writer writes, but fingers don’t fing, grocers don’t groce, and hammers don’t ham? If the plural of tooth is teeth, shouldn’t the plural of
booth be beeth? One goose, two geese — so one moose, two meese?
How can a slim chance and a fat chance be the same, while a wise man and a wise
guy are opposites? How can overlook and oversee be opposites, while quite a lot and
quite a few are alike? How can the weather be hot as hell one day and cold as hell
English was invented by people, not computers, and it reflects the creativity
of human beings. That’s why, when stars are out, they are visible; but when the lights
are out, they are invisible. And why, when I wind up my watch, I start it; but when
I wind up this essay, I end it.
25. According to the passage __________.
A. pineapples are the apples on the pine tree
B. there should be an egg in an eggplant
C. sweetmeats and sweetbreads are different things
D. boxing rings should be round
26. The underlined words “wind up” in the last paragraph maybe means “__________”.
A. blow B. finish C. get hurt D. roll up
27. Through the many paradoxes in the English language, the writer wants to show that
human beings are ____________.

31. Which part of a website is the text probably chosen from?
D The world is filled with smart, talented, educated and gifted people. We meet them every day. A few days ago, my car was not running well. I pulled it into a garage and the young mechanic had it fixed in just a few minutes. He knew what was wrong by simply listening to the engine. I was amazed. The sad truth is: Great talent is not enough. I am constantly shocked at how little talented people earn. I heard the other day that less than 5 percent of Americans earn more than $100, 000 a year. A business consultant who specializes in the medical trade was telling me how many doctors and dentists struggle financially. It was this business consultant who gave me the phrase, “They are one skill away from great wealth.” There is an old saying that goes, “Job means just over broke (破产)' ”. And unfortunately, I would say that the saying applies to millions of people. Because school does not think financial intelligence is intelligence, most workers “live within their means”. They work and they pay the bills. Instead I recommend to young people to seek work for what they will learn, more than what they will earn. When I ask the classes I teach, “How many of you can cook a better hamburger than McDonald’s?” almost all the students raise their hands. I then ask, “So if most of you can cook a better hamburger, how come McDonald’s makes more money than you?” The answer is obvious: McDonald’s is excellent at business systems. The reason so many talented people are poor is because they focus on bui1ding a better hamburger
and know little or nothing about business systems. The world is filled with talented
poor people. They focus on perfecting their skills at building a better hamburger
rather than the skills of selling and delivering the hamburger.
32. The author mentions the mechanic in the first paragraph to show that __________.
A. he has a sharp sense of hearing
B. he is ready to help others
C. he is just one of the talented people
D. he knows little about car repairing
33. The underlined part in the third paragraph can be best replaced by__________.
A. spend more than they can afford
B. live within what they earn
C. live in their own circle
D. do in their own way
34. Why do talented people earn so little according to the author?
A. They don't work hard enough.
B. They have no specialized skills.
C. They don't make full use of their talents.
D. They lack financial intelligence.
35. The main purpose of the author is to tell us___________.
A. why so many talented people are poor
B. what schools should teach students
C. how young people can find a satisfactory job
D. how McDonald's makes much money
第二节（共 5 小题；每小题 2 分，满分 10 分）
Mountain biking is a great way to explore the outdoors, stay in shape, or just
have fun. 36__________ Even though it’s dangerous, if you ride with caution,
it can be enjoyed by the entire family.
Mountain biking can best be characterized into three different styles ---
downhill, free riding, and cross country. Even though the different styles are similar
in some ways, they still require different skills. 37___________
You can find groups that have mountain bike rides and competitions. You can look
on the Internet or even in a local paper and see exactly what’s available in your
area. 38__________ Like all other sports, it takes time and practice. Those just
beginning will have to get past the bumps and bruises from falling off the bike.
The bike you select is more of a personal choice, and a big determining factor
on the type of riding you will be doing. Bikes come in all styles, shapes, and prices,
which will make selecting one for yourself very difficult
39___________ A great mountain biker will become one with his or her
own bike. When buying, make sure you check for comfort, how it fits, even how it is
40___________ Anytime you are riding, you should wear a helmet, along with
knee and elbow pads. If you are following a group or riding in the woods you should
strongly consider a pair of goggles as well. Safety should be your top priority and never taken lightly anytime you are mountain biking. A. Before you buy a bike, always ask to try it out first. B. It takes practice to succeed for a great mountain biker. C. The style that you pick will determine the type of bike you get. D. You may be able to find groups for the more advanced riders as well as beginners. E. Mountain bike riding on unpaved roads can be very dangerous, as mentioned earlier. F. To buy a bike for mountain biking, you should mainly consider how much the bike costs you. G. Racing down the side of a mountain is a lot of fun indeed, although it can also be quite dangerous.

His son looked surprised. “I can understand why I shouldn't pay too much, Father, but if I can pay less, 63 not save a bit of money?”
“That would be a very 64 (reason) thing to do in a big city, but it could destroy 65 small village like ours,” Nick said.
Nick’s guests, 66 had heard their conversation, asked why they should not buy salt 67 (cheap) if they could. Nick replied, “The only reason why a man would sell salt at a lower price would be that he was desperate for money. And anyone who took advantage of that situation would be showing a lack of respect 68 the sweat and struggle of the man who worked very hard to produce it.”

书面表达： As we all know, the Internet is playing an important part in our daily life.
Recently, I did a survey about how the students in my school make use of the Internet. The students mostly use the Internet for three major purposes, among which seeking
information is the most popular. They also use the Internet for communication and entertainment, such as sending and receiving e-mails, enjoying music and movies and playing on-line games. Besides, doing on-line shopping is gradually becoming part of their life.
However, I have also noticed that the Internet brings about problems to the students at the same time. Some students spend too much time playing on-line games. Worse still, unhealthy information on the Internet does great harm to students who get access to out of curiosity.
Thus, we can see students do need proper guidance on how to make good use of the Internet.
