第二部分：阅读理解（共 15 小题，每小题 2 分，满分 30 分） 阅读下列短文，从每题所给的四个选项(A、B、C、D)中，选出最佳选项。 A Over the years I’ve been teaching kids about a simple but powerful spirit—the ant philosophy (哲学). I think we should study ants. Ants have an amazing four-part philosophy, and here is the first part：they never give up. That’s a good philosophy. If they’re headed somewhere and you try to stop them, they’ll look for another way. They’ll climb over, and they’ll climb around. They keep looking for another way. What a neat philosophy to never quit looking for a way to get where they’re supposed to go. Second, ants think winter all summer. That’s an important view. You can’t be so naive (无知 的) as to think summer will last forever. So ants are gathering their winter food in summer. An ancient story says, ―Don’t build your house on the sand in summer.‖ There is some reason in what it says. It is important to think ahead. In summer, you’ve to think about the storm. You’ve got to think about rocks when you enjoy the sand and sun. The third part of the ant philosophy is that ants think summer all winter. That is so important. During the winter, ants remind themselves, ―This won’t last long；we’ll soon be out of here.‖ And on the first warm day, the ants are out. If it turns cold again, they’ll go back, but then they come out again if it is warm. They can’t wait to get out. And here is the last part of the ant philosophy. How much will an ant gather during the summer to prepare for the winter? All that he possibly can. What an incredible (难以置信的) philosophy, the ―all-that-you-possibly-can‖ philosophy. What a great philosophy to have the ant philosophy! Never give up, look ahead, stay active and do all you can. 56. If ants have trouble reaching somewhere, they will_________. A. give up their effort at last B. 1ook for others’ help C. wait for a chance to come D. get there in another way 57. In Paragraph 3, people are advised __________. A. to build their houses in winter B. to gather some food in winter C. to build the house on the sand in summer D. to think about the danger while in safety 58. The third part of the ant philosophy is ___________. ks5u A. more important than the other three B. to believe in yourself and think about no difficulty C. to be active and full of hope for future D. that we should know winter is longer than summer
59. Which of the following shows the ―all-that-you-possibly can‖ philosophy? A. We should try our best to do what we can. B. One should think of what will happen in the future. C. One should get more pay for what he has done. D. We should spend more time doing our work.

One night I was sitting in my room half-listening as my 15-year-old brother fought with my 12-year-old brother Kevin. I didn’t pay attention when Kevin rushed up the stairs with the hurt on his face. About 20 minutes later, as I was walking upstairs I heard Kevin crying inside the bathroom. I knocked on the door and asked, ―Hey！Kevin, do you want to talk?‖ No response. I tried again, ―Why don’t you come out of there?‖ Again, no response. So, joking around, I grabbed a stack of index cards and a pencil and wrote, ―If you don’t want to talk, we can write notes to each other.‖ An hour later I was still sitting on the floor outside the bathroom with two stacks of index cards in front of me. One was blank and one was cards from Kevin on which he had translated all his yucky feelings into words for me. As I read one of Kevin’s notes, tears came to my eyes. It said, ―Nobody in this family cares about me. I’m not the youngest, and I’m not the oldest, and I’m not talented. Tommy thinks I’m stupid and Dad wishes he had the other Kevin as a kid because he’s better at basketball. And you’re never around to even notice me.‖ Tears came to my eyes again as I wrote back to him. ―You know Kevin, I really do love you and I’m sorry I don’t always show it. I am here for you and you are loved in this family.‖ There was no response for a while, but then I heard a tearing sound coming from inside the bathroom. Kevin, who had run out of index cards, wrote on a torn – up paper cup, ―Thanks.‖ I wrote back ―For what?‖ It returned to me with ―Loving me‖ written on it. Since then, I try my best never to half-notice my family members anymore. Kevin and I have closer relationship now, and sometimes when one of us notices that the other is upset we’ll smile and say ―Write it on a paper cup.‖ 64. Why did Kevin stay inside the bathroom alone crying? A. Because he lost in the fight with Tommy. B. Because the author didn’t help him win Tommy. ks5u C. Because he felt no love from the family members. D. Because he hurt him when rushing up the stairs. 65. What could be the reason that Kevin thinks his Dad doesn’t like him? A. Kevin likes fighting with others. B. Kevin is not good at playing basketball. C. Kevin doesn’t want to talk to others. D. Kevin is not talented as his brother. 66. What did the author learn from the incident? A. It’s hard to comfort young brothers at home. B. It’s dangerous to half – notice someone in the family. C. It’s important for family members to show their love. D. The best way to communicate with family members is by writing. D If I had to select a word that best describes the majority of American parents, that word would be guilt-ridden. How sad it is to see parents become the willing victims of the ―give-me game‖, only to discover that, no matter what they do, it isn’t enough. In the end, they are looked down upon for their lack of firmness and blamed when their spoiled children get into trouble. With this in mind, I shall first answer this question: ―What do parents owe their children?‖ and I shall start with what they don’t owe them. Parents don’t owe their children every minute of their day and every ounce of their energy. They don’t owe round-the-clock car service, singing lessons, tennis lessons, an expensive car when they reach sixteen, or a trip to Europe when they graduate.
I take the firm position that parents do not owe their children a college education. If they can afford it, fine. But they must not feel guilty if they can’t. If the children really want to go, they’ll find a way. There are plenty of loans and scholarships for the bright and eager who can’t afford to pay. After children marry, their parents do not owe them a house or money for the furniture. They do not have an obligation to baby-sit their grandchildren when the parents were on vacation. If they want to do it, it must be considered a favor, not an obligation. In my opinion, parents do not owe their children an inheritance(遗产), no matter how much money they have. One of the surest ways to produce a loafer is to let children know that their future is assured. Do parents owe their children anything? Yes, they owe them a great deal. One of their chief obligations is to give their children a sense of personal worth, for self-esteem is the basis of a good mental health. Parents owe their children firm guidance and consistent discipline. The parents who say ―No‖ when other parents say ―Yes‖ sends a double message. He is also saying: ―I love you, and I am ready to risk your anger, because I don’t want you to get into trouble.‖ Parents owe their children privacy and respect for their personal belongings. If a mother feels that she must read her daughter’s diary to know what is going on, the communication between them must be pretty bad. Parents owe their children a set of solid values around which to build their lives. This means teaching them to respect the rights and opinions of others; it means being respectful to elders, to teachers, and to the law. No child asks to be born. If you bring a life into the world, you owe the children something. And if you give him his due, he’ll have something of value to pass along to your grandchildren. 67. According to the author, . A. parents ought to send their children to college as a duty B. parents needn’t feel guilty if they are unable to send their children to college C. if they say ―No‖, parents will surly make their children angry D. parents must support their children even after their marriage 68. The underlined word ―loafer‖ most probably refers to . A. a poorly educated person B. a well educated person C. a hard-working person D. a lazy person 69. The author’s attitude towards the parents is . A. angry B. pitiful C. disappointed D. satisfied 70. The writer of this passage mainly wants to tell us . A. why children look down upon their parents B. the difference between duties of the parents and the children C. over devotion to the children results in trouble for the parents themselves D. children should depend on no one but themselves 第 II 卷 (共 25 分） 第一节：单词拼写（共 10 题，每小题 0.5 分，满分 5 分） 71.
