第三节:阅读理解(共 20 小题;每小题
  1.5 分,满分 30 分) 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。 A Wind-even the slightest of winds can prevent frost. That is because wind is like a spoon in your cup of tea: it stirs things down and brings down a lot of warm air that often floats just above housetops and trees. It may seem strange, but ice itself sometimes can protect crops from frost. Some growers actually spray their crops with water on a freezing night. Water freezes quickly on plants and than a strange thing happens. As long as ice stays wet, it can’t get colder than 32?F, even if the air is much colder. This may defeat frost and saves plants. This strange kind of ‘ice blanket’ works only on plants which are strong enough to stand the weight of frozen spray. This is used even to protect banana plants on some Central American Farms.
  41. If the ice became entirely frozen and dry, suppose what might happen. A. The plants might be frozen to death. B. The plants might benefit from it. C. It might save the plants. D. It might make the plants grow slowly
  42. Ice can save plants rather than destroy them on condition that they are . A. sprayed regularly B. quickly frozen C. strong enough D. used to frost
  43. The best title would be . A. Frost Save Crops B. Ice Battle C. Ice Can Be Nice D. Ice Is Good
  44. In which of the following sentences ‘stand’ has the same meaning in this passage? A. He could hardly stand. B. This house stands the test of time. C. The train stood for an hour. D. He stands in terrible danger. B It is common knowledge that modern man prefers to use his right hand when doing anything requiring one hand. There are mainly two types of theories that try to explain the development of right hand preference in man. The first theory holds that the human body itself needs the preference of one hand over the other. The second type of theory suggests that pressures from society or from the living conditions (or both) lead to the high increase of right
hand preference in man. This theory is supported by human and animal studies that tried to change hand preferences. Unfortunately, there are few written records throughout history which can prove those theories about hand preferences. There are, however, other things which can be used to study this matter. Nearly all cultures(文化) have art forms showing human beings in various activities. We might expect that such drawings and paintings would tell us what the artist actually observed in his culture about hand use. From a study of more than 5,000 years of art works, including 1,180 examples of paintings and drawings we know that in 93% of the cases the right hand was used regardless of which period or which area was examined.
  45. According to the text, some people believe that the right hand is often preferred because A. it is easier to hold things in the right hand. B. man's knowledge of the world supports it. C. the right hand is stronger than the left D. the human body has this special need.
  46. The second theory suggests that a number of people have developed right-handedness as a result of A. the studies they looked at. B. the research they did. C. the pressures they experienced. D. the art works they saw.
  47. A study of the art works has proved that most people??prefer to use the right hand when one hand is needed. A. in 93% of the countries B. in most historical periods C. five thousand years ago D. no matter when and where C The world is not only hungry, but it is also thirsty for water. This may seem strange to you, since nearly 70 percent of the earth’s surface is covered with water. But about 97 percent of this huge amount is sea water, or salt water. Man can only drink and use the other 3 percent?the fresh water from rivers, lakes, underground, and other sources. And we cannot even use all of that, because some of it is in the form of icebergs and glacier (冰川). Even worse, some of it has been polluted. However, as things stand today, this small amount of fresh water is still enough for us. But our need for water is increasing rapidly?almost day by day. Only if we take steps to deal with this problem now can we avoid a severe worldwide water shortage later on. We all have to learn how to stop wasting our valuable water. One of the first steps is to develop ways of reusing it. Today in most large cities, water is used only once and then sent out into a sewer system (下 水道). From there it returns to the sea or runs into underground storage tanks. But it’s possible to pipe used water to a purifying plant. There it can be treated with chemicals so that it can be used again, just as if it were fresh from a spring. But even if every large city purified and reused its water, we still would not have enough. All we’d have to do make use of the vast reserves of sea water in the world is to remove the salt. If we take these steps we’ll be in no danger of drying up.
  48. Which of the following statements is not true?
A. As things remain unchanging, this small amount of fresh water is still enough for us. B. Our need for water is becoming larger and larger. C. There will be no water shortage in the future. D. We should take steps to deal with the water shortage problem.
  49. To reuse water, we should . A. treat it with chemicals B. use it only once C. send it out into a sewer system D. make it flow into underground tanks
  50. In order to have enough water, we should also make use of . A. icebergs and glaciers B. sea water C. rivers and lakes D. underground water
  51. In the passage, the writer tells us . A. to make enough water B. to pay more attention to the water shortage problem C. to pipe used water to be a purifying plant D. to reuse the water D During the twentieth century there has been a great change in the lives of woman. A woman marrying at the end of the nineteenth century probably has been in her middle twenties, and would be likely to have seven or eight children, of whom four or five lived till they were five years old. By the time the youngest was fifteen, the mother would have been in her early fifties and would expect to live a further twenty years, during which chance and health made it unusual for her to get paid work. Today women marry younger and have fewer children. Usually a woman’s youngest child will be fifteen when she is forty-five and can be expected to live another thirty-five year and is likely to take paid work until sixty. This is an important change in women’s economic position. Even a few years ago most girls left school and took a full-time job. However, when they married, they usually left work at once and never returned to it. Today the school-learning age is sixteen; many girls stay at school after that age, and though women marry younger, more married women stay at work at least until shortly before their first child is born. Very many more afterwards return to full or part-time work. Such changes have led to a new relationship in marriage, with the husband accepting a greater share of the duties and satisfactions of family life.
  52. We are told that in a family about 1900 . A. few children died before they were five B. seven or eight children lived to be more than five C. the youngest child would be fifteen D. four or five children died when they were five
  53. One reason why the woman of today may take a job is that she . A. is younger when her children are old enough to look after themselves B. does not like children herself C. needn’t worry about food for her children D. can be free from family duties when she reaches sixty
  54. Many girls are now likely to .
A. give up their jobs for good after they are married B. leave school as soon as they can C. marry so that they can get a job D. continue working until they are going to have a baby.
  55. According to the passage, it is now quite usual for women to . A. stay at home after leaving school B. marry men younger than themselves C. start working later in life D. marry while still at school
  56. Now a husband probably . A. plays a greater part in looking after the children B. helps his wife by doing most of the housework C. feels dissatisfied with his part in the family D. takes a part-time jo
