第三部分：阅读理解（共 20 小题，每题 2 分，满分 40 分） A Marie Curies, born in Sklodovka, Poland in 1876, led a hard life as a girl. Her parents, both teachers, had small salaries and were quite poor, especially after her mother stopped teaching to raise five children and take care of her poor health. Marie's mother suffered from tuberculosis (肺结核) and died of it when Marie was ten. When Marie was small, she showed great interest in science. She loved to study and hoped to become a scientist when she grew up. Her parents encouraged her interest in science. Excellent as she was in her studies, she couldn't go on with the advanced education she needed because Poland was then ruled by Russia and women were not permitted to go to college. In order to continue her education, she smoothed away many difficulties and entered Paris University, where she lived a simple life and studied hard, so she graduated with the highest grades in her class. After graduation she was engaged in scientific research in Paris University. There she met Pierre Curie, whom she married. Pierre joined her in her research into an unknown phenomenon ―radiation‖, which a certain scientist had declared that uranium gave off. The Curies spent several years trying their best to find the element that produced radiation. Finally they succeeded in 1902. Marie Curie won two Nobel Prizes, one for physics in 1906, together with her husband and another scientist; the other for chemistry herself in 1911. Madame Curie was a scientist of great achievement, and the first woman ever to be honored in the Nobel Prize history. 56. When Marie was young, her family became poorer because ______. A. the family had five children B. Of Marie's father small salary C. of Marie's mother's giving up her job D. the family was cruelly taxed by the Russians 57. Marie couldn't continue the advanced education because ______. A. she wanted to help her father to support the family B. her father couldn't afford to send her to college C. her grades were very poor D. colleges in Poland would not take women as students then 58. The fact that proves she was the best student in her class is that ______. A. she smoothed away many difficulties and entered Paris University B. her grades were the highest in her class C. she did research work after her graduation D. she won the Nobel Prize finally 59. In 1906, a certain scientist shared the Nobel Prize with the Curies because ______.

B In a survey of 1,500 European hotel managers, Americans were ranked second, behind the Japanese, as the world's best tourists. In the survey, conducted in April by the online travel site Expedia's German branch, Americans were seen as the most likely to try to speak a foreign language and the most interested in sampling local food. Americans came in third, behind the Japanese and British, as the "most polite" tourists, and third, behind the Japanese and Germans, as "best behaved." And - we're sure this has nothing to do with how the hotel managers view Americans - Americans were ranked far and away as the world's most generous tippers and biggest spenders. On the other hand, Americans were seen as the shabbiest dressers, the most likely to complain and the second noisiest. Who's louder? Only the Italians. Some of the other findings: Russians were seen as the least polite travelers, followed by the Israelis and French. The stingiest tippers: the Germans, followed by the French and Israelis. Italians, by far, were ranked as the best dressers, followed by the French and Spanish. In terms of bad dressing, the British were a distant second to Americans, followed by the Germans. Who's the most unwilling to try speaking in a foreign language? The French, the British and the Italians, in that order. The Chinese are the most reluctant（迟疑的）to sample foreign food, followed closely by - this is strange - the British, whose home cuisine is probably the world's most seriously laughed at (a little unfairly, perhaps.) And, finally, the overall award for "worst tourists in the world" goes to the French, with the Indians and Chinese taking home the silver and bronze, respectively. 61．The writer presents the passage here hoping to _____. A．praise some travelers B．criticize some travelers C．present the result of a survey D．encourage people to travel 62．Considering the best behavior, the tourists ranking second are from _____. A．Britain B．America C．Japan D．Germany 63．According to the survey, the worst dressers in tourists are _____. A．the British B．Americans C．the Germans D．the Spanish 64．The underlined word ―cuisine‖ can be replaced by _____. A．cooking B．decoration C．education D．management C Beijing, April 12(Xinhua net) — ―Robots can do everything,‖ said Landmark, president of ABB Engineering (Shanghai) Ltd, a branch of the world's leading power and automation company. ABB invented the world's first electronic robot controlled by microcomputer in 1974. Twenty years later, it introduced the technology into China, since then, the company has been experiencing rapid development in the country. ―The industry grows very fast in China,‖ Landmark said, ―We have enjoyed strong growth over the past few years, we expect more this year.‖ According to Landmark, enterprises in China are paying more and more attention to the use of robots in the manufacturing process. ―Before, we thought that the inexpensive labor in the country might be a disadvantage for our development,‖ he said, ―However, we are glad to see that more and more enterprises are realizing the importance of quality control. Compared with manual work, robots' work secures quality.‖

Six leading car manufacturers in the country, including Volkswagen, General Motors and Honda are all using robots provided by ABB. Some promising domestic enterprises, such as BYD and Foxconn Electronics, are also the company’s main customers. Currently, the company controls about 30 to 35 percent of the country's robotics market. ―I’m proud of all the successful movements we have made here,‖ Landmark said, ―I have never experienced such great achievements elsewhere in my 21 years' working for ABB.‖ Landmark says ABB's localization strategy in China is one of the main reasons for its success in the country. ―We have very intelligent and skilled staff here,‖ he said, ―I'm always trying to organize the company as a family. I feel the responsibility to take care of it and bring it up.‖ He added that he does not feel strange in the city at all. 65. In which year did ABB introduce the electric robot into China? A. 1974 B. 1994 C.1986 D. 2004 66. ABB's success mainly results from ______. A. its large investment B. its localization strategy C．its excellent staff D. its fine management 67. According to the passage, which of the following is TRUE? A. ABB covers one third of the robotics market. B. Inexpensive labor is an advantage to ABB C. ABB's staffs are all experts on robots D.

ABB will make greater achievements this year D The Prime Minister Tony Charles Lynton Blair （1997 – Present） ―Education is the best economic policy there is.‖ The son of a barrister and lecturer, Tony Blair was born in Edinburgh, but spent most of his childhood in Durham. At the age of 14 he returned to Edinburgh to finish his education at Fettes College. He studied law at Oxford, and went on to become a barrister himself. After standing unsuccessfully for the Labour Party in a by-election, Blair went on to win the seat of Sedgefield in the 1983 General Election, aged 30. Tony Blair made a speedy rise through the ranks, being promoted first to the shadow Treasury front bench in 1984. He subsequently served as a trade and industry spokesman, before being elected to the Shadow Cabinet in 1988 where he was made Shadow Secretary of State for Energy. In 1989 he moved to the employment brief. After the 1992 election Labour's new leader, John Smith, promoted Blair to Shadow Home Secretary.

It was in this post that Blair made famous his pledge that Labour would be tough on crime, tough on the causes of crime. John Smith died suddenly and unexpectedly in 1994, and in the subsequent leadership contest Tony Blair won a large majority of his party's support. Blair immediately launched his campaign for the modernization of the Labour Party, determined to complete the shift further towards the political centre which he saw as essential for victory. The debate over Clause 4 of the party's constitution was considered the crucial test of whether its members would commit to Blair's project. He removed the commitment to public ownership, and at this time coined the term New Labour. The Labour Party won the 1997 General Election by a landslide, after 18 years in Opposition. At the age of 43, Tony Blair became the youngest Prime Minister since Lord Liverpool in 1812. The government began to implement a far-reaching programme of constitutional change, putting the question of devolution to referendums in Scotland and Wales. An elected post of Mayor of London was established at the head of a new capital-wide authority, and all but 92 hereditary peers were removed from the House of Lords in the first stage of its reform. The government has also implemented an investment programme of ￡42 billion in its priority areas of health and education. Tony Blair was re-elected with another landslide majority in the 2001 General Election. He is married to the barrister Cherie Booth QC, and they have four children. Their youngest, Leo, was the first child born to a serving Prime Minister in over 150 years. 70. The last sentence ―Their youngest, Leo, was the first child born to a serving Prime Minister in over 150 years‖ means: A. Leo was the only child of all Prime Ministers in the English history. B. Leo was the first child of a Prime Minister who had retired in over 150 years. C. Leo was the youngest son of Tony Blair, Prime Minister. D.

B. diasppoint sb C. please sb D. puzzle sb E Most shops in Britain open at 9:00 am, and close at 5:00 or 5:30 in the evening. Small shops usually close for an hour at lunchtime. On one or two days a week—usually Thursday and/or Friday—some large food shops stay open until about 8:00 pm for late night shopping. Many shops are closed in the afternoon on one day a week.

sweets and cigarettes as well. But not all the things can be sold on Sundays. Usually it is not difficult for foreign visitors to find where to buy things.
