第三部分阅读理解(共 20 小题;每小题 2 分，满分 40 分） 阅读下列短文，从每题所给的四个选项(A、B、C 和 D)中， 选出最佳选项，并在答题卡上 将该项涂黑。
A In a message beginning "Dear President Obama”， 86-year-old queen Elizabeth said： “I have been the deeply shocked and saddened to learn of the dreadful loss of life today in Newtown. Connecticut；
particularly the news that so many of the dead are children. ” The gunman, named as Adam Lanza, 20, killed 20 small children and six teachers in the Friday shooting, after walking into a school in an idyllic Connecticut town. He had earlier killed his mother, who was a teacher at the school. Former school bus driver Marsha Moskowitz is in disbelief. She once drove at least two of the victims to school， and remembers driving the gunman when he was in middle school. “I recall him to be quiet, reserved and very shy. Pretty much stayed to himself on the bus. ” Connecticut State Police spokesman Paul Vance says Lanza forced his way into the building. “We have established the point of entry. He was not voluntarily let into the school at all, but he forced his way into the school. ？ But that's as far as we can go on that. ” As the nation struggles to understand how the tragedy could have occurred, Lawrence Palinkas, Professor of Social Work at the University of Southern California, notes the reason why so many young Americans have become targets in mass killings is unknown. “Largely because we still don't have enough data — surprisingly, given the increasing number of e- vents. ？ But generally when helpless populations are victimized like that，it's usually to send a message, and it's unfortunately a message of intense anger. ” As of now, no one knows the reason why Adam I^anza did what he did, and many residents of Newtown fear they never will. The queen, who never gives interviews and normally restricts her public comment to e- vents in Commonwealth nations， added： “Prince Philip joins me in extending our heartfelt sympathy to you and the American people at this difficult time. The thoughts and prayers of everyone in the United Kingdom and throughout the Commonwealth are with the families and friends of those killed and with all those who have been affected by todayevents. ” 51. What happened to the queen Elizabeth? A. She was shocked at the crime scene. B. She could bear the sorrow and hardship. \C. wrote to Obama to show her sympathy. D. She was determined to fight with crime. 52. According to the whole text、the gunman _____ A. was a teacher in a primary school B. was invited to attend a school lecture C. once drove two of the victims to school D. appeared more gentle than cruel in the residents' mind 53. We can learn from the passage that _____； ? A. each American has possessed a gun C. Adam is always kind to his neighbours 54. What can we coitclude from the last paragraph? A.
r f』- H^ ( d r f』 - H ^ ( r f』- H^ r f』 - H r f』r f』 r f
B reason can account for Adam?s killing D such killings seldom happen in the USA
the queen shows much concern and sympathy to the American people.
B. The queen will attend the victims' funeral ceremony. C. Maybe it will be illegal for ordinary people to possess guns. D. More harmless people will be killed during their daily life. B Although Philcoxia minensis plants may look like a bunch of ordinary sticks and flowers, underground they are lean， green, meat-eating machines! Experts recently discovered that the plants trap and eat tiny worms. Less than one percent of all flowering plant species are meat-eating.
Philcoxia minensis plants grow in Brazil. They get some of their nutrients the way most plants do. Their roots absorb them from the soil. However, the small plants tend to grow in sandy areas where few nutrients are available. That fact made resea rchers wonder how the plants could survive, especially because their root systems are not developed well. Scientists became even more curious when they noticed that the plants have leaves underground "It doesn?t make sense to have leaves underground, so we supposed that the plants are getting some other kind of benefit from the leaves," researcher Rafael Oliveira told reporters. Experts found roundworms (姻 虫 ） stuck to the plants7 leaves. So they did an experiment. They grew special roundworms. Then they buried them in soil with Philcoxia minen- sis plants. When the experts later tested the plants ， leaves, they found evidence of the worms inside. Scientists say the plants trap the roundworms using a sticky substance. Then they release a special liquid to digest the tiny creatures. The find has made experts hungry to know whether other meat —eating plants are hiding in plain sight. ??This leads to the question of whether there are other carnivorous(食 肉 的 ） plants out there， researcher ” Peter Fritsch told reporters. 55. Experts succeed in discovering that the plants _____ A. can grow in sandy areas B, can trap and eat tiny worms C. look like ordinary flowers D. can be transplanted in some other countries 56. According to the whole text, what is unique about the plants? A. They can survive in drought deserts. B. They have some special nutrients to absorb. C. Their root systems are highly developed with leaves underground. D. They can trap and digest some tiny creatures. 57. The experts did the experiment to _____. A. find the worms stuck to the plants' leaves B. test the plants7 unusual leaves C Solve the mystery about the meat—eating plants D. attempt more methods to grow plants in sandy areas 58. Which of the following would be the best title for the text? A. Some underground Adventures C. Keep off the plants!
B Watch out
D. An At tempted Murder
LONDON (Reuters) ----------- Ecotourism is causing a lot of damage to wildlife and may be endangering the survival of the very animals people are flocking to see, according to researchers. Biologist s and conservationists are worried because polar bears creatures are getting stressed and losing weight and some are dying. "Evidence is growing that many animals do not react well to tourists in their backyard， New Scientist ” magazine said. The immediate effects "researchers have noticed are changes in behavior, heart rates. or stress hormone levels but they fear it could get much worse and over the long term “ could endanger the survival of the very wildlife they want to see. ” Although money produced through ecotourism, which has been growing at about 10—30 percent a year, has major benefits for poor countries and people living in rural areas, the Swiss—based World Conservation Union (IUCN) and some governments fear not all projects
dolphins, penguins and other
are audited and based on environmentally friendly policies ， according to the magazine.
Transmission of disease to wildlife， or small changes to wildlife health through disturbance of daily
life or increased stress levels, while not obvious to the casual observer, may translate to lower survival and breeding， ” said Philip Seddon , of the University of Otago in Dunedin, New Zealand. Scientists have noticed that bottleneck dolphins along the northeastern coast of New Zealand become nervously excited when tourist boats arrive. Similar changes in behavior have been observed in polar bears and yellow-eyed penguins in areas visited by colorists are producing smaller babies. Conservationists are now calling for more research into the effect of ecotourism on animals and say the industry must be developed carefully. They also want studies done before new ecotourism projects are started. The animals ，welfare should be very important because without them there will be no ecotourism，” said Rochelle Constantine of the University of Auckland in New Zealand 59. W h a t i s t h e t e x t m a i n l y a b o u t ? A. Many animals are dying because of lack of money. B. There will be no ecotourism without animals. C Ecotourism could endanger the survival of the wildlife people want to see. D. 60. W e A More m a y research l e a r n should f r o m be done t h e on ecotourism. t h a t _ _ _ _ _ . t e x t

A. if people want to get high income, they must develop ecotourism B. animals have rights to live their own life C. animals are people's good friends D. people should take good care of wildlife D Next time a customer comes to your office, offer him a cup of coffee. And when you?re doing your holiday shopping online
make sure you?re holding a large glass of iced tea. The physical sensation( 感
觉 ）of warmth encourages emotional warmth, while a cold drink in hand prevents you from making unwise decisions those are the practical lesson being drawn from recent research by psychologist John A. Bargh. Psychologists have known that one person's perception(感 知 ） of another's “warmth” is a powerful determiner in social relationships. Judging someone to be either "warm" or “cold” is a primary consideration, even trumping evidence that a “cold， person may be more capable. Much of this is rooted in ， very early childhood experiences, Bargh argues, when babies 7 conceptual sense of the world around them is shaped by physical sensations, particularly warmth and coldness. Classic studies by Harry Harlow, published in 1958， showed monkeys preferred to stay close to a cloth “mother” rather than one made of
wire, even when the wire “mother” carried a food bottle. Harlow} s work and later studies have led psychologists to stress the need for warm physical contact from caregivers to help young children grow into healthy adults with normal social skills. Feelings of ??warmth” and “coldness” in social judgments appear to be universal. Although no worldwide study has been done, Bargh says that describing people as “ warm”or “cold” is common to many cultures, and studies have found those perceptions influence judgment in dozens of countries. To test the relationship between physical and psychological warmth, Bargh conducted an experiment which involved 41 college students. A research assistant who was unaware of the study^ s hypotheses (假 设 ），handed the students either a hot cup of coffee, or a cold drink， to hold while the researcher filled out a short information form： The drink was then handed back. After that, the students were asked to rate the personality of “Person A” based on a particular description. Those who had briefly held the warm drink regarded Person A as warmer than those who had held the iced drink. ??We are grounded in our physical experiences even when we think abstractly,” says Bargh.
63. According to Paragraph 1，a person’s emotion may be affected by _____ A. the visitors to his office
C. his physical feeling of coldness
B. the psychology lessons he has
D. the things he has bought online
64. The author mentions Harlow’s experiment to show that _____. A. adults should develop social skills 、B, babies need warm physical contact C. caregivers should be healthy adults A evaluate someone’s personality C. fill out a personal information form alternatively 66. We can infer from the passage that _____.
A. abstract thinking does not come from physical experiences B. feelings of warmth and coldness are studied worldwide , C physical temperature affects how we see others D. capable persons are often cold to others E In ancient Egypt, the pharaoh(法 老 ） treated the poor message runner like a prince when he arrived at the palace, if he brought good news. However, if the exhausted runner had the misfortune to bring the pharaoh unhappy news, his head was cut off. Shades of that spirit spread over today's conversations. Once a friend arid I packed up some peanut butter and sandwiches for an outing. As we walked light heartedly out the door smiling neighbor looked up at the sky and said, “Oh boy, bad day for a picnic. The weatherman says it?s going to rain. ,， I wanted to strike him on the face with the peanut butter and sandwiches. Not for his stupid weather report, for his smile. Several months ago I was racing to catch a bus. As I breathlessly put my handful of cash across the Grey hound counter, the sales agent said with a broad smile， “Oh that bus left five minutes ago. ” Dreams of head-cutting!
D. monkeys have social relationships B. write down their hypotheses D. hold coffee and cold drink
65. In Bargh’s experiment, the students were asked to _____.

It?s not the news that makes someone angry. It?s the unsympathetic attitude with which it?s delivered. Everyone must give bad news from time to time, and winning professionals do it with the proper attitude. A doctor advising a patient that she needs an operation does it in a caring way. A boss informing an employee he didn?t get the job takes on a sympathetic tone. Big winners know, when delivering any bad news, they should share the feeling of the receiver. Unfortunately, many people are not aware of this. When you 7 re tired from a long flight, has a hotel clerk cheerfully said that your room isn?t ready yet? Whe n you had your heart set on the toast beef, has your waiter told you that he just served the last piece? It makes you as traveler or diner want to land your fist right on their unsympathetic faces. Had my neighbor told me of the upcoming rainstorm with sympathy, 1 would have appreciated his warming . Had the Greyhound salesclerk sympathetically informed me that my bus had already left, I probably would have said, “Oh, that?s all right I'll catch the next one. ” Big winners, when they bear bad news， deliver bombs with the emotion the hombarded(被 轰 炸 的 ） person is sure to have.

As she was playing mer rily in the woods one day she saw Apollo the sun-god staring at her with more than admiration in his eyes. The beaming face of the sun put her to flight. The eager Apollo followed her closely behind, calling out to her to stop. He was afraid that this might be the last time he saw her. Through rough fields and pathless woods she ran, but the sound of his pursuing feet ever grew nearer. As he ran he begged his beloved maiden to slow down, for he feared that she might fall and hurt her sparkling skin on the rocky roads. But she never cared so much about that. At last she was breathless and cried to her father, a river god, for help. No sooner had her prayer been uttered than answered, for she had instantly found herself glued to the ground and a layer of soft bark growing over her fair skin. She had been turned into a laurel tree. To show his undying love for the maiden, he decided that the laurel would be his favorite tree and should be the prize of honor and fame for deathless poets and poetry. Thus the most outstanding poet always desires.
