【参考范文】
The Importance of Keeping a Good Mood
Nowadays, peoplein modern society live under a lot of pressure, from education, career,or family. We are easy to complain the school for charging too much, the familymembers for the heavy burdens, and the society for the fierce competitions. I believe it isessential to maintain a positive attitude towards life. It is important tokeep a good mood under whatever circumstances.
Facing thegreat pressure, people tend to confine themselves to their small rooms andwork hard. This will undermine their health, and they fail to communicate with hisco-workers and spend time with their family members. Instead, we should keep agood mood—we should keep communication with our co-workers and family members,and we should spare time to do some sports as well, like basketball, footballor going to the cinema. We can work at a high efficiency after gettingrefreshed. On the other hand, failure is inevitable in our study and work. Thefeeling of frustration will do us no good. What will really do us good is todraw a lesson from the failure. We should keep a good mood and never give up. Justremember, “Failure is the mother of success.”
In a word,keeping a good mood is very important, especially for the modern men, so weshould learn to relax during our fast-pace modern life.
【范文点评】
首段首先引入现象,现代社会的人遭受各种压力,引出问题,并明确表明自己的观点:在任何环境下,保持一个好心情都是必要的。
第二段先从正反两方面论述了保持好心情的重要性,心态不好,身体状态就会下降,人际交往也会出问题,所以必须保持好心情,积极与人交流。然后指出工作或学习上的一时失败是不可避免的,要勇于面对,保持积极心态。
最后一段再次点题强调保持良好心境的重要性。

【参考答案】
Salmon
①Every year, millions of salmonswim from the ocean into the mouths of rivers and then steadily up the rivers. ②Passing through waters, aroundrocks and waterfalls, the fish finally reach their original streams or lakes. ③They dig out nests inthe riverbed and lay their eggs. ④Then, exhausted by their journey, the parentsalmon die. ⑤They have finished the task that nature has given them. ⑥Months, or yearslater, the young fish start their trip to the ocean. ⑦They live in the salt waterfrom two to seven years until they too are ready to swim back to reproduce. ⑧Their life cyclehelps man provide himself with a basic food fish. ⑨When the adult salmon gather atthe river mouths for the annual trip up the rivers, they are in the bestpossible condition, and nearly every harbor has its salmon fishing fleet readyto catch thousands for markets.
【难点点评】
(1)句①中,由“every year”可以判断,句子的时态是一般现在时,主语是“millionsof salmon”,谓语动词应该用复数形式。
(2)句②中,“fish”前面定冠词“the”不能删掉,表示特指;fish表示同一种鱼时,是单复数同型的名词,此处特指的是一类鱼,数量很多,谓语动词不能用第三人称单数。
(3)句④中,“exhausted by their journey”在句中充当原因状语,由于“exhaust”与“parent salmon”是动宾关系,故用“exhausted”的形式,注意与“exhausting”区分。
(4)句⑦中,注意区分too和to。“until they too...”中的“too”表示“也”,而“to swim”中的“to”是不定式的构成成分,无意义。
(5)句⑨中,“mouths”容易误听成“mouth”。

【答案与解析】
26. C 考点:动词辨析。这里指:土豆应去皮,再切成条状煎炸。Peel除掉(水果等)皮;scale刮(鱼)鳞;strip脱衣;剥夺;slice将…切成薄片;所以应用动词peel。
27. A 考点:状语从句。此空后面是个完整的句子,as在这里作为关系连词引导后面的从句,表示“当……时候”,而B、C、D项后面只能接名词词组。due to,owing to表示“由于,因为”。
28. B 考点:动词辨析。此空后面跟一个that从句,四个选项中只有ensure后面可以接从句。ensure确保,保证。这里指麦当劳要确保每家饭店生产的炸土豆条的味道都一样。ensue因而发生,接着。enrich使……富有。enable使……能够。
29. A 考点:动词辨析。第一段第二句提到,一开始麦当劳是煎炸薯条,而此空后面提到麦当劳在1966年变成了冷冻薯条。可知,麦当劳的制作方式发生了转变。switch to转变成;divert to使转向,侧重指转移方向,或转变人们的注意力;modify修改;alter改动,强调事物本身大小、好坏的变化。
30. D 考点:逻辑关系。上一句提到,很少有人注意到麦当劳制作薯条方式的改变。此空后面却说这个改变对国家农业产生了很大的影响,可见,前后是一种转折关系。Nevertheless然而,表转折;still仍然;anyway无论如何;besides除……之外。
31. C 考点:名词辨析。这里是说人们很熟悉的食品被转变成一种经过高度加工的工业品牌。brand商标,商品的牌子;stuff东西;commodity商品,产品;produce产品。这里主要是考虑到前面用到“familiar”,选“brand”可以与“familiar”形成一种对比,突出McDonald的转变方式带来的影响。
32. B 考点:代词辨析。这句话的前半部分是个完整的句子,所以推断后面的句子是用来修饰“plants”的,而“plants”在从句中做主语,所以关系代词要用“that”。
33. D 考点:介词辨析。这里是说麦当劳店的扩张和低成本、高产量薯条的普及改变了美国人的饮食方式。of表示所属关系。
34. A 考点:形容词辨析。前一句说到麦当劳的薯条味道很好,连锁店获得了很大的成功,所以可推断其一定长期受到消费者、竞争者,甚至食品评论家的赞扬。所以答案为A项。
35. A 考点:形容词辨析。这里指麦当劳薯条有着与众不同的口味,distinctive有特色的,与众不同的;distinct清晰的,明白的;distinguished卓越的,著名的;distinguishable可区别的。

In thissection there are four passages followed by questions or unfinished statements,each with four suggested answers marked A, B, C and D. Choose the one that youthink is the best answer. Mark your answers on your answer sheet.

TEXT A
The way in whichpeople use social space reflects their social relationships and their ethnicidentity. Early immigrants to America from Europe brought with them acollective style of living, which they retained until late in the 18thcentury. Historical records document a group-oriented existence, in which oneroom was used for eating, entertaining guests, and sleeping. People ate soupsfrom a communal pot, shared drinking cups, and used a common pit toilet. Withthe development of ideas about individualism, people soon began to shift to theuse of individual cups and plates; the eating of meals that included meat,bread, and vegetables served on separate plates; and the use of privatetoilets. They began to build their houses with separate rooms to entertainguests-living rooms, separate bedrooms for sleeping, separate workareas-kitchen, laundry room, and separate bathrooms.
In Mexico, themeaning and organization of domestic space is strikingly different. Houses areorganized around a patio, or courtyard. Rooms open onto the patio, where allkinds of domestic activities take place. Individuals do not have separatebedrooms. Children often sleep with parents, and brothers or sisters share abed, emphasizing familial interdependence. Rooms in Mexican houses arelocations for multiple activities that, in contrast, are rigidly separated inthe United States.
66. Changes in living styles among earlyimmigrants were initially brought about by _____.
A. risingliving standards
B. new concepts
C. new customs
D. new designsof houses

TEXT B
There aresuperstitions attached to numbers; even those ancient Greeks believed that allnumbers and their multiples had some mystical significance.
Those numbersbetween 1 and 13 were in particular to have a powerful influence over theaffairs of men. For example, it is commonly said that luck, good or bad, comesin threes; if an accident happens, two more of the same kind may be expectedsoon afterwards. The arrival of a letter will be followed by two others withina certain period.
Another beliefinvolving the number three has it that it is unlucky to light three cigarettesfrom the one match. If this happens, the bad luck that goes with the deed fallsupon the person whose cigarette was the last to be lit. The ill-omen linked tothe lighting of three things from one match or candle goes back to at least the17th century and probably earlier. It was believed that threecandles alight at the same time would be sure to bring bad luck; one, two, orfour, were permissible, but never just three.
Seven wasanother significant number, usually regarded as a bringer of good luck. Theancient astrologers believed that the universe was governed by seven planets;students of Shakespeare will recall that the life of man was divided into sevenages. Seven horseshoes nailed to a house will protect it from all evil.
Nine is usuallythought of as a lucky number because it is the product of three times three. Itwas much used by the Anglo Saxons in their charms for healing.
Another beliefwas that great changes occurred every 7th and 9th of aman’s life. Consequently, the age of 63(the product of nine and seven) wasthought to be a very perilous time for him. If he survived his 63rdyear he might hope to live to a ripe old age.
Thirteen, as wewell know, is regarded with great awe and fear. The common belief is that thisderives from the fact that there were 13 people at Christ’s Last Supper. Thisbeing the eve of his betrayal, it is not difficult to understand thesignificance given to the number by the early Christians.
In more moderntimes 13 is an especially unlucky number of a dinner party, for example. Hotelswill avoid numbering a floor the 13th; the progression is from 12 to 14, and noroom is given the number 13. Many home owners will use 12 1/2 instead of 13 astheir house number.
Yet oddlyenough, to be born on the 13th of the month is not regarded with any fear atall, which just shows how irrational we are in our superstitious beliefs.
68. According to the passage, which of the following groups ofnumbers will certainly bring good luck to people?
A. 3 and 7.
B. 3 and 9.
C. 7 and 9.
D. 3 and 13.
69. The ill luck associated with 13 issupposed to have its origin in _____.
A. legend
B. religion
C. popularbelief
D. certaincustoms
70. What is the author’s attitude towardspeople’s superstitious beliefs?
A. He is mildlycritical.
B. He isstrongly critical.
C. He is infavor of them.
D. His attitudeis not clear.
【文章大意】
本文主要讲了西方社会中数字和迷信的一些联系,尤其是1-13之间的数字对人类的生活有重要影响。人们认为运气的好坏是以3为基数出现的,7和9也是重要数字,被认为可以带来好运,13是一个被人厌恶的数字,原因是基督被害前一夜是13号。
【答案与解析】
68. C 考点:细节题。根据第五段第一句“Seven was another significant number, usually regarded as a bringerof good luck.”和第六段第一句“Nine is usually thought of as lucky number...”可知,7和9被认为是幸运数字,能带来好运。
69. B 考点:推断题。第九段讲到“The common belief is that this derives from the fact that there were13 people at Christ’s Last Supper”(普遍认为是起源于耶稣的最后的晚餐上13个人这个事实),可见13被视为不吉利的数字的说法与宗教有关。
70. A 考点:态度题。最后一段作者说“Yet oddly enough, to be born on the 13th…how irrational we are inour superstitious beliefs”(然而非常奇怪的是,在13日出生一点也不令人可怕,这恰恰显示出我们的迷信多么荒谬)。可见作者对迷信只是轻微地讽刺,并没有通篇进行强烈批评。所以答案为选项A。

①superstition n. 迷信
②mystical adj. 神秘的;神秘主义的
③ill-omen n. 坏兆头
④consequently adv. 结果,最终

TEXT C
Women’s mindswork differently from men’s. At least, that is what most men are convinced of.Psychologists view the subject either as a matter of frustration or a joke. Nowthe biologists have moved into this minefield, and some of them have found thatthere are real differences between the brains of men and women. But beingdifferent, they point out hurriedly, is not the same as being better or worse.
There is,however, a definite structural variation between the male and female brain. Thedifference is in a part of the brain that is used in the most complexintellectual processes-the link between the two halves of the brain.
The two halvesare linked by a trunk line of between 200 and 300 million nerves, the corpuscallosum. Scientists have found quite recently that the corpus callosum inwomen is always larger and probably richer in nerve fibres than it is in men.This is the first time that a structural difference has been found between thebrains of women and men and it must have some significance. The question is“What?”, and, if this difference exists, are there others? Research shows thatpresent-day women think differently and behave differently from men. Are someof these differences biological and inborn, a result of evolution? We tend tothink that is the influence of society that produces these differences. Butcould we be wrong?
Research showedthat these two halves of the brain had different functions, and that the corpuscallosum enabled them to work together. For most people, the left half is usedfor word handing, analytical and logical activities; the right half works onpictures, patterns and forms. We need both halves working together. And thebetter the connections, the more harmoniously the two halves work. And,according to research findings, women have the better connections.
But it isn’t allthat easy to explain the actual differences between skills of men and women onthis basis. In schools throughout the world girls tend to be better than boysat “language subjects” and boys better at maths and physics. If thesedifferences correspond with the differences in the hemispheric trunk line,there is an unalterable distinction between the sexes.
We shan’t knowfor a while, partly because we don’t know of any precise relationship betweenabilities in school subject and the functioning of the two halves of the brain,and we cannot understand how the two halves interact via the corpus callosum.But this striking difference must have some effect and, because the differenceis in the parts of the brain involved in intellect, we should be looking fordifferences in intellectual processing.
71. Which of the following statements isCORRECT?
A. Biologistsare conducting research where psychologists have given up.
B. Braindifferences point to superiority of one sex over the other.
C. Results ofscientific research fail to support popular belief.
D. Thestructural difference in the brain between the sexes has long been known.
72. According to the passage it is commonlybelieved that brain differences are caused by _____ factors.
A. biological
B.psychological
C. physical
D. social
73. “these differences” in paragraph 5refer to those in _____.
A. skills ofmen and women
B. schoolsubjects
C. the brainstructure of men and women
D. activitiescarried out by the brain
74. At the end of the passage the authorproposes more work on _____.
A. the brainstructure as a whole
B. thefunctioning of part of the brain
C. thedistinction between the sexes
D. the effectsof the corpus callosum
75. What is the main purpose of thepassage?
A. To outlinethe research findings on the brain structure.
B. To explainthe link between sex and brain structure.
C. To discussthe various factors that cause brain differences.
D. To suggestnew areas in brain research.
【文章大意】
本文主要介绍了研究发现男女大脑结构存在差异,在左右脑的连接处的胼胝体,女性发育的要比男性的好,但原因目前还没有定论,胼胝体协调左右脑的工作,研究发现女性左右脑协调的更好,但这并不能解释男女存在的差异,由于这个差异存在于大脑中与智力相关的部分,因此我们应该探求思维过程上的差异。
【答案与解析】
71. C 考点:推断题。文章的前四段讲了男性与女性之间的区别以及关于男性和女性大脑方面区别的研究成果,而第五段第一句“But it isn’t all that easy to explain…on this basis”(但是据此解释男性与女性在技能方面的差别不是那么容易的)。由此可见,科学研究还无法解释这些差别,答案为选项C。
72. D 考点:细节题。根据第三段倒数第二句“We tend to think that is the influence of society that producesthese differences”(我们认为是社会的影响造成了这些区别)可知,选项D正确。
73. A 考点:推断题。本段第一句提到“But it isn’t all that easy to explain the actual differences betweenskills of men and women on this basis.”,后面又举了学校男女生不同的例子,可以看出这里的“these differences”指的是本段第一句中提到的skills of men and women(两性技能),所以答案为A。
74. D 考点:推断题。文章的结尾,作者说我们不知道学校学生的能力和大脑两半球功能之间的确切关系。我们不懂大脑两半球是如何通过corpus callosum相互作用的,间接地提出对于corpus callosum的影响,多作研究工作。
75. D 考点:主旨题。结合全文可知,文章先提出男性和女性的大脑结构有区别,但是这一研究成果尚不能解释男性和女性在技能方面的差别。文章的最后作者提出应该做进一步的研究。所以答案为D项。

Information isthe primary commodity in more and more industries today.
By 2005, 83% ofAmerican management personnel will be knowledge workers. Europe and Japan arenot far behind.
By 2005, half ofall knowledge workers (22% of the labor force) will choose “flextime,flexplace” arrangements, which allow them to work at home, communicating withthe office via computer networks.
In the UnitedStates, the so-called “digital divide” seems to be disappearing. In early 2000,a poll found that, where half of white households owned computers, so did fully43% of African-American households, and their numbers were growing rapidly.Hispanic households continued to lag behind, but their rate of computerownership was expanding as well.
Company-ownedand industry-wide television networks are bringing programming to thousands oflocations. Business TV is becoming big business.
Computercompetence will approach 100% in US urban areas by the year 2005, with Europeand Japan not far behind.
80% of US homeswill have computers in 2005, compared with roughly 50% now.
In the UnitedStates, 5 of the 10 fastest-growing careers between now and 2005 will becomputer related. Demand for programmers and systems analysts will grow by 70%.The same trend is accelerating in Europe, Japan, and India.
By 2005, nearlyall college texts and many high school and junior high books will be tied toInternet sites that provide source material, study exercises, and relevant newsarticles to aid in learning. Others will come with CD-ROMs that offer similarresources.
Internet linkswill provide access to the card catalogues of all the major libraries in theworld by 2005. It will be possible to call up on a PC screen millions ofvolumes from distant libraries. Web sites enhance books by providing pictures,sound, film clips, and flexible indexing and search utilities.
Implications:Anyone with access to the Internet will be able to achieve the education neededto build a productive life in an increasingly high-tech world. Computerlearning may even reduce the growing American prison population.
Knowledgeworkers are generally better paid than less-skilled workers. Their wealth israising overall prosperity.
Even entry-levelworkers and those in formerly unskilled positions require a growing level ofeducation. For a good career in almost any field, computer competence is amust. This is one major trend raising the level of education required for aproductive role in today’s work force. For many workers, the opportunity fortraining is becoming one of the most desirable benefits any job can offer.
