Did you 36 it because you thought that it was just a little thought? Have you ever 37 what that little thought would have become if you had acted on your instincts (直觉) 38 if you had paid more attention to it? Imagine a scene, 39 you are sitting at home watching television or reading a book, suddenly a light is 40 on in the dark tunnel of your mind as a thought or an idea crosses your mind. The thought 41 your attention but seems so meaningless and you are tempted to 42 it, but wait a minute! That thought could be the potential beginning of the 43 you have so mush wished for. As the thought crosses your mind, your senses become alert and you suddenly see a possibility, a solution, or find the answer to a problem whose solution has 44 escaped you. It is almost as if a wise man has 45 the perfect solution into your ear or awakened your senses to a reality, thereby bringing light to your life. It is like finding the 46 piece of jigsaw puzzle (拼图游戏). This becomes an amazing moment and everything freezes around you as you excitedly try to grasp the practicality of that 47 but powerful thought. Your self-confidence and enthusiasm increase as you become 48 of the great possibilities that can 49 if that little thought is acted upon. This becomes the moment to build upon that thought and to put 50 any ideas that are streaming from that little thought for later review. 51 meaningless little thought or ideas when acted 52 have a potential to explode into great projects. Many successful projects have been 53 from the little positive thoughts that were carefully protected and recognized as bricks to great things. Don't waste a(n) 54 to act on a potentially brilliant idea. You don't have to wait for a major idea, or approval from your peers in order for you to act on that little thought. That little thought or idea is the 55 of great things if you decide to follow it through. 36. A. hate B. ignore C. like D. value 37. A. discovered B. remembered C. considered D. complained 38. A. but B. or C. and D. nor 39. A. when B. what C. where D. while 40. A. taken B. worked C. moved D. turned 41. A. catches B. puts C. causes D. pulls 42. A. adore B. adopt C. abandon D. account 43.

第三部分：阅读理解(共 20 小题；每小题 2 分，满分 40 分) 请认真阅读下列短文，从短文后各题所给的 A、B、C、D 四个选项中，选出最佳 选项。 A With only fish and birds for company, Eric Erden has been rowing across the Pacific Ocean to Australia in his 23-foot-long boat since he left California on July 10, 2009. This is the first part of Eric’s trip around the world using only his own energy. He will row, bike, and walk without help from any motors at all. His plan includes climbing the tallest mountain on each of the six continents he visits, to honor the memory of a fellow climber. He says he is doing this to show kids that they can achieve any goal, but he also hopes to have some great adventures along the way. Storms and huge waves regularly force him in the wrong direction and even threaten to overturn his boat. “Sometimes I really feel scared,” says a somewhat embarrassed Eric. “But that’s part of the journey. I knew this wouldn’t be easy when I started.” Protein bars give him energy, and he boils water to heat freeze-dried meals on a one-burner stove. A sun-powered machine removes salt from ocean water so he can drink it, but when that fails he sometimes tries to collect rainwater in a bucket. He’s not bothered by any of the hardships. Eric sees the world as a laboratory where there is much to learn. And when his trip around the world takes him across land, he enjoys meeting people — especially children. He has already visited several schools and shared his story. 56．Why is Eric making this trip? A. To learn to overcome various hardships. B. To encourage children to reach for their goal. C. To do experiments all over the world.
D. To honor the memory of a fellow climber. 57．What does Eric plan to do on each of the six continents he will visit? A. Visit schools to share his story. B. Study the culture of the local people. C. Cycle from one end to the other. D. Climb the tallest mountain. 58．How does Eric mainly get drinking water? A. He boils the seawater on a stove. B. He has brought fresh water with him. C. He collects rain water in a bucket. D. He uses a special machine to make seawater fresh. 59．Which of the following words best describes Eric’s character? A. Fearless B. Intelligent. C. Determined. D. Lonely. B Children today would rather toy with new technologies. The role of children has changed as well as that of teens. The world has truly evolved throughout the years. Today，a typical day in the life of a five year old is entirely different from what it once was. A few decades ago children used to work. They did the kind of work parents do today. Today there are shows on which children are putting pounds of makeup on and have flashing things all over their bodies. This makes a child want to paper over all of their imperfections. They think they have to look perfect all the time. Teens have changed as well. My grandma got married when she was thirteen. Girls who had an arranged marriage had no time to play because they were expected to cook, clean，take care of the kids, and do housework every single day. Today，we go to school every morning, maybe participate in some after-school activities, and possibly go to work for extra cash. Then we go home and do homework, and eat. After all of this we have to find the time to socialize by texting, talking on the phone, or logging on to social networking sites. We enjoy ourselves a lot. The generation before us complains about how they did not have the things we have now. They say we are not appreciative and do not value life or just do not care about our futures anymore. Let's make a change! The youth have the power to work on whatever they believe in and make a difference in the world. Take advantage of your resources. It is never too late to make a positive change in our world. 60. The role of children and teens has changed mainly because _____. A. they look perfect all the time B. they don't have to work hard as their parents did C. their world has truly evolved D. new technologies are developing and widely used 61. The underlined phrase (in the 2nd paragraph ) probably means to _____. A. put up with B. make up for C. cover up D. put aside 62. We can learn from the text that nowadays teenagers _____. A. are having a social life in richer ways B. do housework as their parents did
C. are seldom satisfied with what they have D. don't appreciate and value life 63. The author's attitude towards changes of teen’s life is _____. A. optimistic B. neutral C. critical D. complaining C RichardSolo 1800 Rechargeable Battery In just minutes a day, plug in and charge your iPhone quickly!

With a little effort, and not much money, most of us could reduce our energy diets by 25 percent or more — doing the Earth a favor while also helping our wallets.
Not long ago, my wife, PJ, and I tried a new diet — not to lose a little weight but to answer an annoying question about climate change. Scientists have reported recently that the world is heating up even faster than predicted only a few years ago, and that the consequences could be severe if we don't keep reducing emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2) and other greenhouse gases that are trapping heat in our atmosphere. We decided to try an experiment. For one month we recorded our personal emissions of CO2. We wanted to see how much we could cut back, so we went on a strict diet. The average US household produces about 150 pounds of CO2 a day by doing common-place things like turning on air-conditioning or driving cars. That's more than twice the European average and almost five times the global average, mostly because Americans drive more and have bigger houses. But how much should we try to reduce? For an answer, I checked with Tim Flannery, author of The Weather Makers: How Man Is Changing the Climate and What It Means for Life on Earth. In his book, he had challenged readers to make deep cuts in personal emissions to keep the world from reaching extremely important tipping points, such as the melting of the ice sheets in Greenland or West Antarctica. "To stay below that point, we need to reduce CO2 emissions by 80 percent." he said. Good advice, I thought. I'd opened our bedroom windows to let in the wind. We'd gotten so used to keeping our air-conditioning going around the clock. I'd almost forgotten the windows even opened. We should not let this happen again. It's time for us to change our habits if necessary. 68. Why did the author and his wife try a new diet? A. To take special kinds of food B. To improve their health C. To lose weight D. To respond to climate change. 69. The underlined words "tipping points" most probably refer to ________. A. melting points B. burning points C. freezing points D. boiling points 70. It can be inferred from the passage that ________. A. it is necessary to keep the air-conditioning on all the time B. the average European household produces about 1,000 pounds of CO2 a month C. the average US household produces about 3,000 pounds of CO2 a month D. it seems possible for every household to cut emissions of CO2 71. Which of the following would be the best title for this passage? A. Changing Climate Sounds Reasonable B. Changing Our Habits Begins at Work C. Saving Energy Starts at Home D. Reducing Emissions of CO2 Proves Difficult E Sports account for a growing amount of income made on the sales of commercial time by television companies. Many television companies have used sports to attract viewers from particular sections of the general public, and then they
have sold audiences to advertisers. An attraction of sport programs for the major U.S. media companies is that events are often held on Saturday and Sunday afternoons—the slowest time periods of the week for general television viewing. Sport events are the most popular weekend programs, especially among male viewers who may not watch much television at other times during the week. This means the television networks are able to sell advertising time at relatively high prices during what normally would be dead time for programming. Media corporations also use sports to attract commercial sponsors that might take their advertising dollars elsewhere if television stations did not report certain sports. The people in the advertising departments of major corporations realize that sports attract male viewers. They also realize that most business travelers are men and that many men make family decisions on the purchases of computers, cars and life insurance. Golf and tennis are special cases for television programming. These sports attract few viewers, and the ratings( 收视率 )are unusually low. However, the audience for these sports is attractive to certain advertisers. It is made up of people from the highest income groups in the United States, to certain advertisers. It is made up of people from the highest income groups in the United States, including many lawyers and business managers. This is why television reporting of golf and tennis is sponsored by companies selling high-priced cars. business and personal computer, and holiday trips .This is also why the networks continue to carry these programs regardless of low ratings. Advertisers are willing to pay high fees to reach high-income consumers and those managers who make decisions to buy thousands of “company cars” and computer, with such viewers, these programs don’t need high ratings to stay on the air. 72. Television sport programs on weekend afternoons__________. A. result in more sport events B. get more viewers to play sports C. bring more money to the television networks D. make more people interested in television 73. Why would weekend afternoons become dead time without sport programs? A. Because there would be few viewers B. Because the advertisers would be off work C. Because television programs would go slowly D. Because viewers would pay less for watching television 74. The ratings are not important for golf and tennis programs because ______. A. their advertisers are car makers B. their advertisers target at rich people C. their viewers are attracted by sports D. their viewers can afford expensive cars 75. What is the passage mainly about? A. Television ratings are determined by male viewers B. Rich viewers contribute most to television companies
C. Commercial advertisers are the major sponsors of sport events D. Sports are gaining importance in advertising on television 第Ⅱ卷 第四部分：书面表达（共两节，满分 35 分） 第一节 任务型读写 (共 10 小题；每小题 1 分，满分 10 分) 阅读下面短文，根据所读内容在表格中的空白处填入恰当的单词。注意： 每个空格只填一个单词。 Have you ever wondered: What drives successful people? Take a look around and talk to your friends and seniors who are very successful, you will see all of them have adopted certain values which have proved vital for their success. It is evident that successful people take initiative (主动性). When they find something needs to be done, they just do it instead of waiting. They believe that responsibility is taken, not given. They weigh immediately what has to be done and then do it with pleasure, thus strengthening their reputation. Successful people are enthusiastic about the things they do, especially when they believe in what they are doing. They are motivated by their own satisfaction and the joy they get from doing their work. They work hard even when no one is watching and they throw themselves into their work. They do not fear failure. Failures and disappointments in life are unavoidable. It is failure that teaches us much more than success. Successful people pick themselves up after a fall and try again with more determination and commitment and learn from each failure. They associate with those they can learn from and enjoy the company of those who appreciate their achievement. Having good IQ often gets a person what he wants but it’s really the EQ that keeps him there and helps him enjoy a high reputation. Successful people are polite to everyone and treat others with respect. By giving respect to others, they command respect for themselves. Another important quality of successful persons is that they never complain. It’s better to praise others and win favor with them. So instead of complaining about a situation, successful people always try to solve it. To put it shortly, take initiative and be enthusiastic about them. Do not be afraid to fail, but get up and start again. When you do so, success will be just around the corner.

Recently a survey has been carried out to find out how middle school students spend their pocket money. In this survey, both junior students and senior students spend most their money on books , snacks and playing games , still some money goes to clothes , banks , sports , and so on. The survey shows that about 44% of seniors prefer books to snacks (37% )and playing games (31% ). On the other hand, only 32% of juniors spend their pocket money buying books, while over a half buy snacks and 44% spend in playing games. Both seniors and juniors would not waste too much money on clothes or put it in banks. I think a lot of snacks will not only make us put on weight but also do harm to our health. In addition , if we play games without limit, we ' 11 lose much precious time , which results in low grades. Furthermore, the money is hard-earned. I hope we students value our money as well as our time.
