All day Andrew felt nervous and anxious as he thought about the upcoming showdown. What B. when C. until B. victory C. relief B. this C. us D. B. given C. won B. avoid C. decline B. waiting C. attempting B. reported C. involved
if Mr. Larchmont refused to grant his request? Andrew had worked so hard in the last 18 months and landed some great accounts for Braer and Hopkins Advertising Agency. Of course, he deserved a wage increase. The thought of walking into Larchmont ’ s office left Andrew weak in the knees. Late in the afternoon he was finally courageous enough to approach his superior. To his delight and surprise, the ever frugal Harvey Larchmont agreed to give Andrew a raise! Andrew arrived home that evening —despite breaking all city and state speed limits—to a beautiful table set with their best china, and candles lit. His wife, Tina, had prepared a delicate meal including his favorite dishes. Immediately he figured someone from the office had tipped her off! Next to his plate Andrew found a beautiful lettered note. It was from his wife. It read: “Congratulations, my love! I knew you’d get the raise! I prepared this dinner to show just how much I love you. I am so proud of your accomplishments!” He read it and stopped to reflect on how sensitive and caring Tina was. After dinner, Andrew was on his way to the kitchen to get dessert when he observed that a second card had slipped out of Tina’s pocket onto the floor. He bent forward to pick it up. It read: “Don’t worry about not getting the raise! You do deserve one! You are a wonderful provider and I prepared this dinner to show you just how much I love you even though you did not get the increase. ” Suddenly tears swelled in Andrew’ s eyes. Total acceptance! Tina’s support for him was not conditional upon his success at work.
The fear of rejection is often softened and we can undergo almost any setback or rejection when we know someone loves us regardless of our success or failure. 56. What was Andrew’s plan that Friday? A. To request a wage increase from his boss. B. To land some great accounts for the company. C. To celebrate his success with his wife at home. D. To get a job in the Braer and Hopkins Advertising Agency. 57. The underlined word “ frugal ” in Paragraph 2 most probably means “_________”. A. wasteful B. simple C. economical D. effective 58. Why did Tina prepare a grand dinner for Andrew that day? A. She was confident of his getting a pay raise. B. She meant to show her support whatever the result would be. C. She believed that her husband was the best in his company. D. She wanted to express her gratitude for his devotion to the family. 59. We can conclude from the text that ______. A. many fears turn out to be unfounded B. work hard and you will be rewarded C. we should never be afraid to ask for what is due to us D. unconditional love brings courage and strength B

Irish-born writer, is more famous for being George Bernard Shaw than he is for his writings today. Few of Shaw ’
s more than 60 plays, novels and essays are performed or read anymore. And yet Shaw genuinely helped make our modern world. Although you’d be lucky to get a chance to see one of his dramas today, in his time he turned the theater into a vehicle for the discussion of social issues, not only in Britain but on the stage of the world. In a way Shaw was someone who created the modern culture of Britain. Where the theater had been dominated by entertainment, Shaw used it to teach people the importance of paying attention to the issues of their day. The plight ( 苦难) of the poor and the working class, the situation of women and the institutions of society, such as the education system ---- Shaw was among the most well-known figures making these topics central to public debate. His first play, Widowers’ Houses (1892), deals with the question of slum ( 贫民窟 ) housing. His Mrs Warren ’ s Profession (1893) brought a controversial topic to the stage. Shaw was an important mover and shaker in new political movements too. He was an early member of the Fabian Society, which argued for the socialist cause in the UK. Shaw was also the founder (in 1895) of one of the now most famous colleges in the world, the London School of Economics. If few of his works have really stood the test of time, many of his quotations have become part of the furniture of the English language. “Youth is wasted on the young,” he wrote. He also knew how to sum up a political philosophy( 哲 学) in a few memorable words. For instance: “A government
that robs Peter to pay Paul can always depend on the support of Paul.” 63. Shaw’s influence on the modern world comes mainly from ______. A. the changes he brought to the British culture B. his philosophies on the role of government C. his awareness of social problems of his day D. the support for the London School of Economics 64. Widowers’ Houses is a play that mainly focuses on ______. A. the failure of the UK education system B. the housing problems of poor people C. robbery incidents in slum areas D. socialist movements in the UK 65. By describing Shaw’ s quotations as “part of the furniture of the English language”, the author means that Shaw ’s words ______. A. have become the best part of English B. have greatly developed the English language C. have made the English language philosophical D. have become an inseparable part of the English language 66. Which of the following about George Bernard Shaw ’s works is TRUE? A. They should be adapted for modern readers. B. They are mostly about the lives of working class. C. They deal with important social issues of their day. D. Most of them are still performed on the stage of the world today. D BERLIN (Reuters)—Germany’s postal service has announced plans to explore improved service and help protect the
environment by getting “fetch friends”—ordinary people traveling across cities—to deliver parcels on their way. It is hoped that the move, which will be tested in the coming months, might lessen traffic in inner cities and reduce CO2 emissions(排放). This should help DHL, a division of the German postal service, reach its target of improving the company’s carbon efficiency by 30 percent before 2020. “As the world’s biggest logistics(物流) provider, we recognize a special responsibility to reduce the impact on the environment as much as possible, ” said Frank Appel, Chief Executive Officer of Deutsche Post DHL, in a statement referring to a variety of measures being considered. The “fetch friends” find out online about parcels that need delivering to people who live or work along the way that they are planning to travel through the city. They then select the ones that they want to take. Codes( 编 码 ) sent to their mobile phones tell the volunteers where to pick the packages up. Parcels can be taken part of the way or passed on to another volunteer but all volunteers need to have the right code on their mobile phone so the track and trace system can be updated. Logistics companies will be responsible for looking after the operation to make sure that the privacy of post is respected. It’s hoped that this could be done using mobile phones but DHL says it recognizes that some security issues remain to be worked out. 67. According to the passage, the “fetch friend” program ________. A. has been tested for months B. aims to reduce the cost of the service
C. employs environmentalists to help with deliveries D. encourages ordinary people to help cut the carbon footprint 68. Which of the following statements is TRUE of DHL? A. It belongs to the Germany ’s postal service. B. It has the most up-to-date tracking system in Germany. C. It has succeeded in improving its carbon efficiency by 30%. D. It has designed many measures to improve its service speed. 69. What may be a problem with the new service according to the article? A. Volunteers’ not allowing to select parcels. B. The wrong codes in the mobile phones. C. The possibility that parcels could be opened on the way. D. Parcels’ being taken to the destination by a single volunteer. 70. What might be the best Title for the best passage? A. New Challenges for the Postal Service B. A Greener Way to Deliver Parcels C. Solutions for Global Warming D. Statements from DHL E It was 3:45 in the morning when the vote was finally taken. After six months of arguing and final 16 hours of hot parliamentary debates, Australia ’ s Northern Territory became the first legal authority in the world to allow doctors to take the lives of incurably ill patients who wish to die. The measure passed by the convincing vote of 15 to 10. Almost immediately word flashed on the Internet and was picked up, half a world away, by John Hofsess, executive director of the
Right to Die Society of Canada. He sent it on by way of the group’s online service, Death NET. Says Hofsess: “We posted bulletins all day long, because of course this isn ’t just something that happened in Australia. It ’s world history.” The full import may take a while to sink in. The NT Rights of the Terminally Ill Law has left physicians and citizens alike trying to deal with its moral and practical implications. Some have breathed sighs of relief, others, including churches, right-to-life groups and the Australian Medical Association, bitterly attacked the bill and the hurry of its passage. But the tide is unlikely to turn back. In Australia — where an aging population, life-extending technology and changing community attitudes have all played their part — other states are going to consider making a similar law to deal with euthanasia (安乐死). In the US and Canada, where the right-to-die movement is gathering strength, observers are waiting for the dominoes (多米诺骨 牌) to start falling. Under the new Northern Territory law, an adult patient can request death — probably by a deadly injection or pill — to put an end to suffering. The patient must be diagnosed (诊断) as Terminally Ill by two doctors. After a “cooling off” period of seven days, the patient can sign a certificate of request. After 48 hours the wish for death can be met. For Lloyd Nickson, a 54-year-old Darwin resident suffering from lung cancer, the NT Rights of Terminally Ill Law means he can get on with living without the haunting fear of his suffering: a terrifying death from his breathing condition. “I’m not afraid of dying from a spiritual point of view, but what I was afraid of was how I’d go, because I’ve watched people die in the hospital fighting for oxygen and clawing at their masks,” he says.
71. Which of the following has the similar meaning to “But the tide is unlikely to turn back.”? A. What happened in Australia can change world history. B. It is impossible to pass the NT Rights of the Terminally Ill Law. C. Doctors are allowed by law to take the lives of the ill patients. D. That the Law has been passed probably can ’t be changed. 72. From the second paragraph we learn that __________. A. the objection to euthanasia is slow to come in other countries B. physicians and citizens share the same view on euthanasia C. changing technology is chiefly responsible for the hurry passage of the law D. it takes time to realize the significance of the law ’ s passage 73. By saying “observers are waiting for the dominoes to start falling”, the author means __________. A. observers are taking a wait-and-see attitude towards the future of euthanasia B. similar bills are likely to be passed in the U.S., Canada and other countries C. observers are waiting to see the result of the game of dominoes D. the effect-taking process of the passed bill may finally come to a stop 74. We can learn from the passage that Lloyd Nickson __________. A. will face his death with calm when dying B. experiences a lot the suffering of a lung cancer C. has an intense fear of terrible suffering D. undergoes a cooling off period of seven days
75. The author’ s attitude towards euthanasia seems to be that of __________. A. opposition B. doubt C. approval D. anxiety 2014 年福州市高三适应性练习 英 语

四、One possible version: It is common that we use cell phones as a means of communication for its convenience. to However, the
fact that people are getting addicted cannot be ignored.
Have a look at the picture. Three persons are playing with their cell phones when having dinner,
immersing themselves in a personal space. The scene can be seen everywhere in our life. Some even have signs of anxiety if they don’t have their cellphones with them. I think there are are two to reasons share for ideas this. with are
On one hand, people
others. On the other hand, not believing in others, they
unwilling to communicate with people around them face to face. Faced with this problem, I thought making a balance of our life is the key. We should spend more time with our family and friends, and at the same time try to be self-controlled to avoid over-independence on cells phones.
