阅读下列短文,从每题所给的 A、B、C 和 D 项中,选出最佳选项,并在答题卡上将该项涂 黑。 A Brian arrived at the San Francisco airport two hours before the flight to Paris. He was wearing three shirts, a jacket, two pairs of socks, a pair of shorts, and two pairs of jeans. He was carrying one small backpack, which was very full, but he didn’t have any other luggage. Brian needed to meet a man named Tony before he checked in for his flight. He found Tony near the Air France counter. Tony gave him a round-trip ticket and a small package. “Give this package to Jean Paul at the airport in Paris. He will have a sign with your name on it. I think you can find him easily,” Tony said, “You don’t have any luggage, right?” “Only this backpack,” Brian answered. “You said I could bring one carry-on bag.” “That’s right. One carry-on bag is fine. Have a good trip.” “Thanks.” Is Brian a criminal(罪犯)?Not at all. He is an air-courier. And he paid only $110 for the round-trip ticket to Paris. Air-couriers get cheap airline tickets because they take important packages and papers to foreign countries. Businesses sometimes need to get packages and papers to people in foreign countries by the next day. Often, the only way they can do this is to use an air-courier company. It is not cheap for a business to send a package with an air-courier, but it is quick. Every year about 80,000 people worldwide travel as air-couriers. The number of tickets for the air-courier travel is growing by about 10 percent a year. However, air-courier travel isn’t for everyone. But if you have very little money, you can be flexible(灵活的) about your travel plans, and don’t mind wearing the same clothes for a week, it can be a great way to take a vacation!
  26.Why was Brian wearing so many clothes for his travel? A.Because they were the uniforms for air-couriers. B.Because that made him easier to be recognized. C.Because his backpack had no room for his clothes. D.Because he did not have any luggage with him.
  27.An air-courier is a person who .
A.manages a business company in foreign countries B.organizes international flights for tourists C.travels around the world with cheap tickets D.delivers papers and packages to foreign countries
  28.Businesses choose the air-courier service because . A.it costs less C.it saves time B.it is flexible D.it grows fast

  29.One of the disadvantages of traveling as an air-courier is that he . A.cannot decide when and where to travel B.cannot take any luggage with him C.has to wear two pairs of jeans D.saves little money from the travel
  30.The author of the text mainly . A.describes the activities of a law-breaker B.suggests an ideal way to travel C.argues against the air-courier travel D.tells us about a developing business B How I Turned to Be Optimistic I began to grow up that winter night when my parents and I were returning from my aunt’s house, and my mother said that we might soon be leaving for America. We were on the bus then. I was crying, and some people on the bus were turning around to look at me. I remember that I could not bear the thought of never hearing again the radio program for school children to which I listened every morning. I do not remember myself crying for this reason again. In fact, I think I cried very little when I was saying goodbye to my friends and relatives. When we were leaving I thought about all the places I was going to see ? the strange and magical places I had known only from books and pictures. The country I was leaving never to come back was hardly in my head then. The four years that followed taught me the importance of optimism, but the idea did not come to me at once. For the first two years in New York I was really lost ? having to study in
three schools as a result of family moves. I did not quite know what I was or what I should be. Mother remarried, and things became even more complex for me. Some time passed before my stepfather and I got used to each other. I was often sad, and saw no end to “the hard times”. My responsibilities in the family increased a lot since I knew English better than everyone else at home. I wrote letters, filled out forms, translated at interviews with Immigration officers, took my grandparents to the doctor and translated there, and even discussed telephone bills with company representatives. From my experiences I have learned one important rule:almost all common troubles eventually go away!Something good is certain to happen in the end when you do not give up, and just wait a little!I believe that my life will turn out all right, even though it will not be that easy.
  31.How did the author get to know America? A.From her relatives. C.From books and pictures. B.From her mother. D.From radio programs.

  32.Upon leaving for America the author felt . A.confused C.worried B.excited D.amazed

  33.For the first two years in New York, the author . A.often lost her way C.studied in three different schools B.did not think about her future D.got on well with her stepfather

  35.The author believes that . A.her future will be free from troubles B.it is difficult to learn to become patient C.there are more good things than bad things D.good things will happen if one keeps trying C Why do men die earlier than women? The latest research makes it known that the reason B.She attended a lot of job interviews. D.She helped her family with her English.
could be that men’s hearts go into rapid decline when they reach middle age. The largest study of the effects of ageing on the heart has found that women’s longevity may be linked to the fact that their hearts do not lose their pumping power with age. “We have found that the power of the male heart falls by 20-25 percent between 18 and 70 years of age,” said the head of the study, David Goldspink of Liverpool John Moores University in the UK. “Within the heart there are millions of cells that enable it to beat. Between the age of 20 and 70, one-third of those cells die and are not replaced in men,” said Goldspink. “This is part of the ageing process.” What surprises scientists is that the female heart sees very little loss of these cells. A healthy 70-year-old woman’s heart could perform almost as well as a 20-year-old one’s. “This gender difference might just explain why women live longer than men,” said Goldspink. They studied more than 250 healthy men and women between the ages of 18 and 80, focusing on healthy persons to remove the confusing influence of disease. “The team has yet to find why ageing takes a greater loss on the male heart,” said Goldspink. The good news is that men can improve the health of their heart with regular exercise. Goldspink stressed that women also need regular exercise to prevent their leg muscles becoming smaller and weaker as they age.
  36. The underlined word “longevity” in the second paragraph probably refers to “”. A. health B. long life C. ageing D. effect

  37. The text mainly talks about . A. men’s heart cells C. the gender difference B. women’s ageing process、 D. hearts and long life

C. exercise regularly to keep your heart healthy
  40. We can know from the passage that .
D. prevent your cells from being lost
A. the reason why ageing takes a greater loss on the male heart has been found out B. scientists are on the way to finding out why the male heart loses more of the cells C. the team has done something to prevent the male from suffering the greater loss D. women over 70 could lose more heart cells than those at the age of 20 D Who says Americans worship the almighty dollar?It’s not true. Having enough free time is more important to most Americans than being rich, according to a new poll. Only 13 percent of more than 2,400 people questioned in the telephone poll ranked being wealthy as most important to them, while 67 percent ranked free time as their top priority, higher than having a successful career, getting married, and having children. “Everyone wants free time to do the things they want to do, young, middle-aged or old,” said Richard Morin, of the Pew Social & Demographic Trends Project, which conducted the survey. “So our desire to play unites us.” The poll also showed that people who were university educated valued career success over wealth, so did middle-aged people. Not surprisingly, those who didn’t have money, ranked wealth very highly. This included minorities, first generation Americans and less educated people. The survey also revealed that a disproportionate(不成比例的) number of people under the age of 30 and retirees in the group made $20,000 or less a year. But the emphasis on wealth lessens with age, with younger people putting value on it but hardly any seniors. “It just diminishes with time as the reality sets in that you would never be rich,” Morin said. “But also, the reality sets in that you don’t have to be rich to lead a very comfortable and fulfilling life.” While wealth was not at the top of people’s list of priorities, 43 percent still said it was somewhat important.
  41.The poll showed that the majority of American people ranked as the most important. A.wealth C.marriage B.a successful career D.free time

  42.Who cares least for wealth, according to the passage?
A.Young people. C.Old people.
B.Middle-aged people. D.Well-educated people.

  45.The underlined word “diminishes” in the third paragraph probably means . A.increases B.decreases C.changes D.stays
