阅读理解 2 We are all busy talking about and using the Internet (互联网), but how many of us know the history of the Internet? Many people are surprised when they find that the Internet was set up in the 1960s. At that time, computers were large and expensive. Computer networks (网络) didn't work well. If one computer in the network broke down, then the whole network stopped. So a new network system had to be set up. It should be good enough to be used by many different computers. If part of the network was not working, information could be sent through another part. In this way computer network system would keep on working all the time. At first the Internet was only used by the government, but, in the early 1970s, universities, hospitals and banks were allowed to use it too. However, computers were still very expensive and the Internet was difficult to use. By the start of the 1990s, computers became cheaper and easier to use. Scientists had also developed software that made 'surfing' (浏览) the Internet more convenient. Today it is easy to get on-line (上网) and it is said that millions of people use the Internet everyday. Sending e-mail is more and more popular among students. The Internet has now become one of the most important parts of people's life. 判断下列句子是否符合短文内容,符合的用“T”表示,不符合的用 “F”表示。 l. The Internet has a history of less than thirty years. T F

  4. People didn't have enough software to get on-line conveniently until the early 1990s. T F
阅读理解 3 Mr. and Mrs. Turner live outside a small town. They have a big farm and they are always busy working on it. Their son, Peter, studied at a middle school. The young man studied hard and did well in his lessons. It made them happy. Last month Peter finished middle school and passed the entrance examination (升学考 试). Mrs. Turner was very happy and told the farmers about it. Yesterday morning the woman went to the town to buy something for her son. On the bus she told one of her friends how clever and able her son was. She spoke very loudly. All the people in the bus began to listen to her. “Which university (大学) will your son study in?” a woman next to her asked. “In the most famous university in our country!” Mrs. Turner said happily. “The most famous university?” “Oxford University (牛津).” Most of the passengers (乘客) looked at her carefully. Some of them said to her, “Congratulations!” A woman said, “I'm sure he'll know Fred Smith.” “Who's Fred Smith?” “He's my son.” “Does he study in the university, too?” “No, ”said the woman. “He is one of the professors.” l.

阅读理解 4 “Cool” is a word with many meanings. Its old meaning is used to express a temperature that is a little bit cold. As the world has changed, the word has had many different meanings. “Cool” can be used to express feelings of interest in almost anything. When you see a famous car in the street, maybe you will say “It's cool.”You may think, “He's so cool,” when you see your favourite footballer. We all maximize (扩大) the meaning of “cool”. You can use it instead of many words such as “new” or “surprising”. Here's an interesting story we can use to show the way the word is used. A teacher asked her students to write about the waterfall (瀑布) they had visited. On one student's paper was just the one sentence, “It's so cool”. Maybe he thought it was the best way to show what he saw and felt. But the story also shows a scarcity (缺乏) of words. Without “cool”, some people have no words to show the same meaning. So it is quite important to keep some credibility (可信性). Can you think of many other words that make your life as colourful as the word “cool”? I can. And I think they are also very cool.
  1. We know that the word “cool” has . A. only one meaning B. no meanings C. many different meanings D. the same meaning
  2. In the passage, the word “express” means“”. A. see B. show C. know D. feel
  3. If you are something, you may say, “It's cool.” A. interested in B. angry about C. afraid of D. unhappy with
  4. The writer takes an example to show he is the way the word is used. A. pleased with B. strange to C. worried about D. careful with
  5. In the passage, the writer suggests (暗示) that the word “cool”. A. can be used instead of many words B. usually means something interesting C. can make your life colourful D. may not be as cool as it seems
阅读理解 6 If you do not use your arms or your legs for some time, they become weak; when you start using them again, they slowly become strong again. Everybody knows that. Yet many people do not seem to know that memory works in the same way. When someone says that he has a good memory, he really means that he keeps his memory in practice by using it. When someone else says that his memory is poor, he really means that he does not give it enough chance to become strong. If a friend says that his arms and legs are weak, we know that it is his own fault. But if he tells us that he has a poor memory, many of us think that his parents are to blame, and few of us know that it is just his own fault. Have you ever found that some people can' t read or write but usually they have better memories? This is because they cannot read or write and they have to remember things; they cannot write them down in a little notebook. They have to remember days, names, songs and stories; so their memory is the whole time being exercised. So if you want to have a good memory, learn from the people: practise remembering.
  1. The main reason for one's poor memory is that his parents have poor memories. T F
  2. If you don't use your arms or legs for some time, they will become strong. T F
  3. A good memory comes from more practice. T F
  4. Some people can't read or write, but they have better memories, because they have saved trouble. T F
  5. The best title of this passage is “How to Have a Good Memory”. T F
阅读理解 7 A meteorite (陨石) almost hit an 80-year-old man named Arthur Pettifer in Britain when he was working in his garden. The meteorite was the biggest in the past 26 years in Britain. The meteorite weighed (重量) one kilo, and might be over four thousand million (百万) years old. “I hear the big noise in the air. I looked up and saw the tops of the trees coming and going,” he said. “I didn't know what it was.” Meteorites are small things from the small planets in space. About 3,500 meteorites may fall on earth every year, but only very few are found. Mr. Pettifer's meteorite is the fifth to fall in Britain since the Second World War. Mr. Pettifer is glad. “When you think about it coming from so far away, it really is something strange.”
  1. The meteorite was Mr Pettifer when it fell down. A. close to B. far from C. hitting D. coming to
  2. The meteorite was already years old. A. 40,000,000,000 B. 40,000,000 C. 400,000,000 D. 4,000,000,000

阅读理解 8 One of the things I always believe is that no matter how bad something is, you can take something positive out of it. The one time I wasn’t sure of that was on September
  11. I usually wake up a 6:30 or 7:00 in the morning. That day, I happened to wake up earlier. I turned on the TV and I saw that a plane had crashed (撞击) into the North Tower of the World Trade Center. My first reaction (反应) was that it was a terrible accident. Then I saw another plane fly into the South Tower and I realized that I was witnessing (目击) an act of terrorism. My wife and I spent the day watching the terrible pictures over again. When I watched family members looking for their loved ones, the pain in their eyes was something I would never forget. I couldn’t understand how something this terrible could have happened. It wasn’t until a few weeks after September 11 that I began to see that perhaps some good did come from this tragedy (悲剧). People seem different now, more understanding, more tolerant(宽容的). Little things that seemed to be such a trouble before are no longer big things. Personally, I am more tolerant than I was. I realize life is too short, and too precious(珍贵的), to let myself get worried over small things. I’ve learned also that you can’t take things for granted. Things change in the blink of an eye. People go to work and don’t come back. One moment they’re living and the next minute they’re not. And, it doesn’t matter who you are, there is nothing you can do about it. We never know when our time here will be over, so we all need to make the most of every minute we have. You try to learn from what happened. You can’t be used up by it. You can’t live by it. All you can do is just live.
  1. The word “positive” in the passage probably means . A. terrible B. bad C. good D. real
  2. What did the writer see after he turned on the TV that morning? A. A fire starting B. A plane flying C. A terrible accident D. An act of terrorism.
  3. From September 11, the writer had realized that. A. people should make the most of every minute they have B. he has become less tolerant towards others C. he should get worried about little things D. life is too short to care about others.
  4. What’s the best title of this passage? A. A Report about September 11 B. The Tragedy of September 11 C. September 11 and My Family D. September 11 and My Turn.
阅读理解 9 Mrs. Weeks was reading a newspaper story to her class. The story said:Were you ever in a hospital when you were small? How did you feel? The doctors in Children’s Hospital are asking for money for children’s toys(玩具). Some children in the hospital must stay in bed for many weeks. Toys are needed to keep these sick(生病的)children happy and quiet. Money for them can be sent to the hospital. After Mrs. Weeks read the story,she said,“This story gave me an idea.” “You want us to bring some money for the toys.” “We could bring some of our own toys for the children in the hospital.” said the boys and girls one after another. “Well,your ideas w
