第三部分：阅读理解（共两节，满分 40 分） A ANCHORACE，Alaska－The 2004 winner of Alaska’s famous 1,000-mile sled-dog race, the Iditarod, won again at age 53 to become the oldest champion in 2013, a year after his son became the youngest winner． Mitch Seavey got his dogs to the finishing line first in 9 days, 7 hours, 39 minutes and 56 seconds ． His son, Dallas Seavey, now 26, ended up ranking fourth, behind the older competitor,43-year-old Ally Zirkle, who followed four-time champion Jeff King, now57． Mitch Seavey, who lives in Seward, Alaska, operates a seasonal sled-dog touring business, The race was Mitch Seavey’s 20th Iditarod． This year’s contest was marked by unusual conditions and unseasonable rain in the northern part of the trail, and conditions that Seavey said helped his team． “It seems like the tougher it is, the better we can do.” He also thought of Zirkle, a New England immigrant（移民)who now lives in Two Rives, Alaska． “She’s a great musher （赶狗拉雪橇的人） ,and she’s going to win the Iditarod sometime, and probably more than once． We just had a little more energy, I think． ”Zirkle, one of the most popular mushers, was greeted by shouts of “Aliy, Aliy” from the fans as she drove her dog team approaching the finishing line on Nome’s Front Street．”I am pretty happy to be here,” she said．” I was going for it．” The Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race is one of the few major U．S．sports events in which men and women compete on an equal footing．The name “ Iditarod” dates from a local Athabascan tern meaning “a far, distant place” ．Youthful mushers in the race may have some physical advantages－they can do some things more easily． But more importantly, winning the race needs the experience in dog race． The year’s event started on Saturday, March2 with a ceremonial run in Anchorage．Of the 66 mushers who started the race, 10 had dropped out of competition as of Tuesday night． For his victory, Mitch Seavey will take home $50,400 and a new truck． 56．Which of the following is the true according to the passage? A．Mitch Seavey is the oldest competitor in the sled-dog race in 2013． B．Mitch Seavey, who operates a touring business, is a New England immigrant． C．Mitch Seavey won the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race in 2004 and 2013． D．Mitch Seavey managed to help his son become the youngest winner in 2012． 57．On which day did Mitch Seavey probably win the champion in the 2013 Iditarod? A．On Saturday, March2． B．On Monday, March 11． C．On Saturday, March9． D．On Tuesday, March13．
58．Who ranked the 2nd place in the 2013Iditarod according to the passage? A．Aliy Zirkle． B．Dallas Seavey． C．Mitch Seavey． D．Jeff King． 59．According to the passage, we can learn that ． A．the sled-dog race is the most important sports event in the US B．experience also has a major influence on the result of the race besides age C．men and women can’t compete in the sled-dog race together at the same time D．all the athletes in the sled-dog race are limited by age to win the sled-dog race B Which comes first, happiness or money? Are richer people happier? And if so, how do people get much richer? A recent study could tell you the answer． The study looked into thousands of teenagers and found that those who felt better about life as young adults tended to have higher incomes by the time they turned29．Those who were happiest earned an average of $8．000more than those who were the most depressed． The researchers, from University College London and the University of Warwick, say that very gloomy teens, no matter how tall or smart they were, earned 10% less than their peers, while the happier ones earned up to 30% more． Happier teenagers have an easier time getting through school, college and a job interview, chiefly because they always feel better about life．It may also be true that happier people find it easier to make friends, who are often the key to homework help or networking． A report in June suggested that professional respect was more important than dollars in terms of workplace happiness．In August scientists announced that they had found the gene for happiness in women, Alas(the same gene doesn’t appear to have the same effect on men) ．And in October researchers in the UK and in the US announced that people who eat seven portions of fruit and vegetables a day report being the happiest． The big question is: if it really is true that happier kids end up being wealthier kids, is it necessary of parents to get their kids to do the homework? The fact is that no homework will make kids happy but surely hurt their grades．Studies do show, after all, that more education leads to better-paid jobs, which may give us a deep thought． These findings show that the teenagers, happiness is important to their future success,” one of the report’s authors writes． “But what is the most important is that we should find a way to help children gain more satisfaction form doing schoolwork．” 60．What conclusion can the researchers draw from the recent study? A．Happy teenagers grow up to be wealthier． B．Money can make people become happier． C．Wealth has nothing to do with happiness at all．
D．Schoolwork can help teens achieve success． 61．The main reason why happier people have more chances to succeed is that ． A．they are easy to communicate with others B．they are good at doing their schoolwork C．they are hopeful and optimistic about their life D．they eat much more fruit and vegetables a day 62．The underline word “gloomy” in Paragraph 3 probably means “ ”． A．upset B．glorious C．happy D．wealthy 63．What can be the title for the text? A．The way to educate kids． B．The source of happiness． C．How to achieve your goal． D．The secret of being wealthier． C Another day begins with the call of the phone’s alarm． Where are you? Open your eyes．Turn the alarm off and you will start working out on your apps(应用软件) ． First stop, weather. Sunny day. Look outside the window. Oh, no it isn't. Second stop, Air Quality Index: 344, hazardous, Level 6 Severely Polluted. (Health warnings of emergency conditions. The entire population is more likely to be affected.)". Mental recheck required: It really is a sunny day and the weather app isn't lying or in need of being replaced, it's just that you can't see the sun through the thick fog. Note to self: Cycling to work is out, face mask is in. Has the world stopped turning? News app merely confirms that it's business as usual. Another government has fallen, your soccer team has lost, again, and China's economy is still increasing steadily. Diary app informs you of all the things you failed to do the previous day and loads you up with another half-dozen tasks. Next, browse a couple of social networking apps to determine the status updates of friends. Another sound from the phone, it's a message from your significant friend who is already at work, saying the Taobao.com order for Italian cheese is about to arrive. Apps have become part of our “every-moment” lives. Apps provided so much information．But the dark side to all this connectivity would be lack of privacy, being a slave to the app．The only real problem is that once you lose your smart phone you lose your life. Some friends and family do not have smart phones, but prefer the old-fashioned Nokia that merely makes phone calls and sends instant messages. While I respect their purity and desire to be free of the control of technology, it's obvious they are outsiders, and their lives are loaded up with paper and old devices. They're still buying books at stores, complaining the lack of CDs on
the market, watching TV and missing out on complete news cycles. Though I would add, they have lives that aren't spent inside small screens. My phone is a palm-sized one-stop shop and about the only thing it doesn’t do is teleport （心灵运输） ．What’s not to like? 64 ． The functions of apps mentioned in the passage can be listed as follows EXCEFT that ． A．the apps can show you weather forecast B．the apps can tell you bow to work directly C．the apps can inform you the latest news D．the apps can tell you what you failed to do 65．According to the passage, the author thinks that ． A．people’s life is governed by apps B．people feel bored about the use of apps C．people can’t live without apps D．people hate apps with powerful function 66．It can be inferred from the last paragraph but one that ． A．more and more people like Nokia more than apps B．using Nokia can be free of the control of technology C．all people don’t kike the advanced smart phones D．ordinary people don’t like shopping online D “ Dining out”，or “ eating out ”，is a phrase people use in Britain when they eat in a restaurant or a pub. Eating out is more popular in Britain today than ever before. However, eating out can be expensive. Restaurants are normally more expensive than pubs, though many pubs serve very good ， simple food. As British people don’t dine out every night of the week ，eating in a restaurant is often seen as a special occasion. When going for the first date， or if celebrating an anniversary or a birthday ，many people like to go to a restaurant. People often eat in a restaurant before going to the cinema or the theatre. As in all cultures, there are many rules of etiquette (礼节)surrounding food and eating, and nowhere is this more pronounced than when eating in a smart restaurant. People are almost always expected to eat with a knife and fork and these should be held in the correct hand and used in the correct way. It is also impolite to have your elbows on the dining table when you are eating.
There’re many such “unspoken” rules — they are normally only important when eating in a very elegant and expensive restaurant, and vary slightly from restaurant to restaurant and place to place. A recent nationwide survey showed that there was a divide in manners between the north and south of Britain 一 the “worst” manners were in Scotland and the northeast, and the “best” in Wales and the southeast! However, this survey was almost certainly conducted by someone in the southeast, so it may not be entirely fair. Naturally, restaurants vary greatly in quality and price. However, almost all British cities have a vast range of food and cooking styles to choose from as well as traditional British food， . from the very cheap to the very expensive — French, Italian, Indian, Greek, Thai, Japanese and many more. In fact, when asked what their favorite food is, many British people say an Indian curry (咖喱菜）rather than any other dish! As well as dining in a restaurant ，when people are too tired to cook after work they often get a “takeaway”. This means they order from a takeaway or takeout restaurant by phone, then go to collect it and take it home to eat. Many takeout restaurants also deliver to your house. While you can normally find a takeout restaurant for almost any cuisine ，the most popular are Italian ，Indian and Chinese — and all you have to do is to open the door, pay and eat! 67. What can be concluded from the first two paragraphs?
A. The British spend more eating out than cooking at home. B. The British pay great attention to eating in a restaurant. C. The British often dine out when celebrating festivals. D. People tend to eat in a restaurant after watching a movie. 68.The underlined word “pronounced" in Paragraph 3 probably means “_____ A. polite 69.

A. There exist great differences of rules in different restaurants. B. People from Wales and southeast Britain are the most polite. C. Your order in a takeout restaurant can be sent to your home. D. Traditional British food is seldom served in British restaurants. 70. What does the passage mainly talk about? B. Table manners in Britain. D. Traditional and foreign foods in Britain. A. Restaurant culture in Britain. C. Different restaurants in Britain.
