PART THREE READING COMPREHENSION (30 marks) Directions: Read the following three passages. Each passage is followed by several questions or unfinished statements. For each of them there are four choices marked A, B, C and D. Choose the one that fits best according to the information given in the passage. A I received a call today asking if I would be willing to bring food to a family in need. The mother was having a major operation and would be lying down for several weeks. Of course, I responded with an immediate “Yes!”. As I planned the meal in my head, I reflected on how many times over the years I had been asked to prepare food. I have done so countless times with a very open heart. But the truly amazing thing is that I have received double over the course of my life. When my mother passed away, our house was filled with fresh dinners for weeks. A woman from the church of our community stopped by each evening with some food. The gift of food was her small way of trying to ease our pain. Later in my life, when I was on bed rest during my pregnancy with twins, women of the church again stepped in to help. They arranged babysitting for my two-year-old daughter, and brought lovely dinners to our house. Even when I was put in the hospital, my husband would bring cooked meals to my hospital room. How we relied on these dinners to feed my tired husband and young daughter. Food is all about comfort. It feeds our bodies, but it can also feed our souls. When you hear people talking about their favorite holidays, it usually includes their feelings connected with sharing food. I know that I will have many more opportunities in my lifetime to prepare food for others. It is truly a gift I want to prepare and deliver to someone in need. 56. The author has given lots of food to others because_______. A. she is poor at cooking. C. she is friendly to others. A. was glad to be able to lend a hand C. had to stay in bed for several weeks B. she is a church member. D. she has received others? food.

58. Which of the following is TRUE about the author? A. Her mother died when she was in hospital. B. She didn?t get enough food during her pregnancy. C. She received food as well as comfort in her hard times. D. She thinks offering food is the only way to show love. 59. What do we know about the author?s family? A. Her family lives not far from a church. B. Her family is too poor to buy enough food. C. Her husband is not good at cooking. D. She has a babysitter taking care of her twins. 60. According to the passage, which of the following conclusion can we get? A. A good beginning makes a good ending.
B. One good turn deserves another. C. Actions speak louder than words. D. Every man has his faults. B While you may be doing everything right, ignoring just one or two steps in the process may keep you from getting a job, especially in this fierce market. Here is a checklist that covers some of the major links in the job-search chain. THE RESUME --- Make sure it is up-to-date and related to the types of jobs you are se eking for. Have someone else look at your resume. If you cannot afford a career coach, give your resume to friends or family members to scrutinize. Have copies of your resume printed so that you are ready to hand them out at interviews. COVERING LETTERS --- Maybe you?ve set up a few basic styles in advance, but that?s not enough. Each covering letter should be designed to suit the job for which you are applying. THE WARDROBE(衣橱) --- Check your wardrobe to ensure that you have the appropriate professional dress, including shoes, ready for interview. NETWORKING --- Don?t isolate yourself from others for days. Network through e-mail messages, phone calls, appointments and meetings keep you in touch with the outside world and prevent you from becoming depressed. APPLICATION --- A glance at huge online job sites isn?t usually the best way to find a job. You are more likely to succeed through the people you know via networking. THE FOLLOW-UP --- It is quite common to apply for job and never hear back from the company. Take measures, such as following up with a phone call a week or so after you apply. If you know someone at the company, check whether that person will put in a good word for you. INTERVIEWS --- If you?ve got plenty of interviews but no return calls or job offers, take a look at your interviewing skills. This is one area where investing in a career coach may pay off. But if you can?t afford one, try to find a job group or service that conducts free mock(模拟) interviews. SUPPORT SYSTEMS --- Finally, recognize that looking for job is rather difficult. Even at the best of times, a job hunt is often about rejection（遭到拒绝）, and that can be hard to endure.(忍受) Staying in touch with family, friends, professional networks and fellow job seekers can help you to maintain a positive attitude and a sense of perspective. 61. The author?s purpose of writing this text is to _________. A. suggest graduates should find suitable jobs B. tell people how to improve their interview skills C. teach people how to get ready for an interview D. give people some tips on searching for jobs 62. The underlined word “scrutinize” in Paragraph 2 can be replaced by ________. A. check B. use C. rewrite D. criticize 63. Which of the following methods is wrong according to the text? A. You should have your resume read by your friends after finishing it. B. You should create different covering letters for the different jobs you apply for. C. Searching online is the most effective way to look for a job.
D. You should wear professional clothes and shoes for the interview. 64. What should you do if you don?t receive any calls after lots of interviews? A. Ask a fellow job seeker to help you. C. Rewrite your resume as soon as possible. 65. It is implied in the text that__________. A. people often pay no attention to writing their resume B. the interview is the most difficult step for interviewees C. your social network may help you a lot in your job hunt D. a career coach often offers free mock interviews to interviewees C I was in my third year of teaching creative writing at a high school in New York, when one of my students, 15-year-old Mickey, gave me a note from his mother. It explained his absence from class the day before. I had seen Mickey himself writing the note at his desk. Most parental-excuse notes I received were penned by my students. If I were to deal with them, I?d be busy 24 hours a day. The forged excuse notes made a large pile, with writing that ranged from imaginative to crazy. The writers of those notes didn?t realize that honest excuse notes were usually dull: “Peter was late because the alarm clock didn?t go off.” Isn?t it remarkable, I thought how the students complained and said it was hard putting 200 words together on any subject? But when they produced excuse notes, they were brilliant. So one day I typed out a dozen excuse notes and gave them to my class. I said, “They?re supposed to be written by parents, but actually they are not. True, Mickey?” The students looked at me nervously. “Now, this will be the first class to study the art of the excuse note --- the first class, ever, to practice writing them. You?re so lucky to have a teacher like me who has taken your best writing and turned it into a subject worthy of study. ” Everyone smiled as I went on, “You used your imaginations. So try more now. Today I?d like you to write ?An Excuse Note from Adam to God? or ?An Excuse Note from Eve to God?.” Heads went down. Pens raced across paper. For the first time ever I saw students so careful in their writing that they had to be asked to go to lunch by their friends. The next day everyone had excuse notes. Heated discussions followed. The headmaster entered the classroom and walked up and down, looking at papers, and then said, “I?d like you to see me in my office.” When I stepped into his office, he came to shake my hand and said, “I just want to tell you that that lesson, that task, whatever the hell you were doing, was great. Those kids were writing on the college level. Thank you. ” 66. What did the author do with the students found dishonest? A. He reported them to the headmaster. C. He had them take notes before lunch. B. He lectured them hard on honesty. D. He helped improve their writing skills.
B. Carefully review your interviewing skills. D. Go to the managers? offices to find out why.
67. The author found that compared with the true excuse notes, the produced ones by the students were usually__________. A. less interesting learn_________. A. the necessity of being honest C. the importance of creative writing A. nervous A. Effective. B. active B. Difficult. B. how to write excuse notes skillfully D. how to be creative in writing C. smart C. Misleading. D. careless D. Reasonable. B. more imaginative C. less creative D. less convincing 68. The author had the students practice writing excuse notes so that the students could
69. In the author?s opinion, when the students were asked to produce excuse notes, they became_____. 70. What did the headmaster think of the author?s way of teaching?
PART FOUR WRITING (45 marks) Section A (10 marks) Directions: Read the following passage and complete the diagram by using the information from the passage. Write NO MORE THAN THREE WORDS for each numbered blank. With all kinds of toothbrush and toothpaste ads everywhere, people have come to realize the importance of protecting teeth. "There is no decayed tooth(龋齿) for young children" has become the goal of all parents. Bad teeth may cause a lot of pain or even death. Infections of gums (牙龈) and teeth can release bacteria into the blood system. Those bacteria can increase the chances of a heart attack or stroke and worsen the effects of other disease. Experts at the National Institutes of Health say good dental care starts at birth. They say breast milk is the best food for the healthy development of teeth. Breast milk can help slow bacterial growth and acid production in the mouth. But dentists say you should clean your baby's gums and early teeth after each feeding. Use a cloth with a little warm water. When baby teeth begin to appear, you can clean them with a wet toothbrush. Dentists say it is important to find soft toothbrushes specially made for babies. And use them very gently. The use of fluoride (氟化物) to protect teeth is common in many parts of the world. This natural element is often added to drinking water supplies. The fluoride mixes with enamel (牙釉质), the hard surface on teeth, to help prevent holes from forming. But young children often swallow toothpaste w hen they brush. The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry notes that swallowing fluoridated toothpaste can cause problems. So young children should be carefully supervised when they brush their teeth. And only a small amount of fluoridated toothpaste, the size of a green pea, should be used. Parents often wonder about what effect thumb sucking or sucking on a pacifier (橡皮奶嘴) might have on their baby's teeth. Dental experts generally agree that this is fine early in life. The American Academy of Family Physicians says most kids stop sucking their thumbs by the age of four. If it continues, the group advises parents to talk to their child's dentist or doctor. It could interfere with the correct development of permanent teeth.
Dentists say babies should be examined when their first teeth appear --- usually at around six months. Healthy teeth are meant to last a lifetime. If parents pay attention to the above tips, young children?s teeth growing can be good and healthy. Title: How to Protect 71. _______________ 72. ____________ No decayed tooth for young children

Section B (10 marks) Directions: Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions according to the information given in the passage and the required words limit. Write your answer on your answer sheet. Toms Shoes is a shoe company run by a former reality television competitor. It uses social media far more than traditional advertising, and it takes advantage of socially recognized ideas to build a for-profit business. Founder Black Mycoskie, an entrepreneur who once appeared on the show The Amazing Race got the idea to start the company during a trip to Argentina after noticing that many children didn?t have shoes. He created a company with the condition that for every pair of the shoes a person purchases, the company will donate another pair to a needy child.
Mycoskie recently visited the offices of msnbc.com, where he told us that there was no way Toms would have survived 10 years ago. He also said he didn?t think the company would have been nearly as successful if it hadn?t hit on the idea of combining charity with the for-profit business. In keeping with both the company?s amazing marketing efforts and its charity focus, Toms is hoping to persuade people from all walks of life to take off their shoes this April 5. The One Day Without Shoes event comes as Toms has gotten ready to put another product on the market later this year. The company will again donate one item for each item that will be bought, but Mycoskie would yet reveal what the new product will be. With the new product, however, Mycoskie said he hoped to change the company into less of a shoe company and more of a “one for one” company. 81. What does Toms Shoes use to build its business? (No more than 5 words) 82. What will happen if a pair of shoes is sold by the company? (No more than 14 words) 83. What will be the company like in the future? (No more than 14 words) 84. Why has the company been so successful? (No more than 10 words)
