4.B.由本句下文可知,这一天blue Buick的主人先到家刚关掉发动机,yellow Oldsmobile的主人就把车停到车位。
5.A.yellow Oldsmobile的车主把车停得离blue Buick太近不是一次了,因此,这一天照例停在了离blue Buick太近的地方。
6.C.因yellow Oldsmobile多次停的离Buick太近致使Buick的主人失去了耐心。
7.D.根据上文中That left hardly enough room to open the door可直接选出答案。此处leave意为“留下,留给”。
8.A. 因Oldsmobile 车的车主总是把车停放的离Buick 车很近,又因该文章以 Buick车车主的口吻在叙述,所以开门时使门撞了Buick车的车门,因此应该用第一人称的名词性物主代词。
9.B.根据上下文可知,Oldsmobile车的车主是说着 “Make me”走出车库的,所以可以推出在此处应表示伴随情况。
16.C.本句是在请求原谅,因此用forgive。comfort “安慰” help“帮助” please“使…高兴”都与原文意思不符。
17.D.由下文but there was a note on my windshield 中的windshield(车的挡风玻璃)可以推知 Buick的主人看到的是自己的车,由文章的第一句中的garage可知答案。
18.A.由上文Oldsmobile的车主多次把车停在离 Buick 车太近的地方,说明Oldsmobile 的车主停得不规范,无规则。由下文的because she just learned to drive 解释了原因可知。Crazily“不规范,无规则”。
20.B从那以后,无论什么时间Blue Buick 在路上在Yellow Oldsmobile旁边经过,两位司机都会微笑着互打招呼。

And ___11_____, while most of us are only too ____12____ to apply(应用)to others the cold wind of critisim, we are ____13____ unwilling to give our fellows the warm sunshine of praise. Why----when one word of praise can bring such ____14____?
It’s strange how chary(吝啬)we are about praising. Perhaps it’s ___15____ few of us know how to accept it. It’s ___16____ rewarding to give praise in areas in which ____17____ generally goes unnoticed or unmentioned. An artist gets complimented(admired) for a glorious picture, a cook for a ___18____meal. But do you ever tell your laundry manager how pleased you are when the shirts are ___19_____ just right? In fact, to give praise ____20_____ the give nothing but a moment’s thought and a moment’s effort.

The Colors of Friendship
Once upon a time the colors of the world started to quarrel. Green said, “Clearly I am the most important. I am the sign of life and hope. I was chosen for grass, trees and leaves. Without me, all animals would  21  .” 
Blue interrupted, “You only think about the  22  , but consider the sky and the sea.
23   the water that is the basis of life and drawn up by the clouds from the deep sea. Without my peace, you would all be  24  .” 
Yellow chuckled (笑道), “You are all so serious. I bring laughter, fun, and   25  into the world.” 
Orange started next to blow her trumpet, “I am the color of health and strength. I may be  26  , but I am precious for I serve the needs of human life. When I fill the sky      27  , my beauty is so striking that no one gives another  28  to any of you.”
Red could stand it  29   and he shouted out, “I am the ruler of all of you. I am the color of danger and of bravery. I am willing to  30  truth. I am also the color of passion and of love.”
Then came Purple and Indigo (深蓝) …
The colors went on boasting, each convinced of his or her own  31 . Their quarreling became louder and louder. Suddenly there was a startling flash of bright lightening thunder. Rain started to pour down  32  . The colors crouched (蜷缩) down  33  , drawing close to one another for comfort.

Doing as they were told, the colors _38_ and joined hands. They formed a colorful rainbow. From then on, whenever a good rain _39_ the world, a rainbow appears in the sky. They remember to _40_ one another.

39.C   本题选C表示原因,正因为英语是我(学得)最好的科目,所以得了C+我觉得惊讶,并由此去找教授评理。

51.A   我开始放弃学业了,在考试的前一天晚上去看电影,笫二天,我就决心把学试当做好玩的游戏了。

     My  18  with my mom all started one day  19  she said to me sarcastically (讽刺地) “Wow, you’re surely lively today.” I  20  it so literally (字面地) that then and there I decided to close off from her and never  21  back to her. So every time she would say something  22  I disagreed with her I would just say. “Okay, 23 you want, Mom.” But I really got cold quickly. And my 24 began to build. One night I talked to my mom about the school homework and she said, “Oh, that’s  25 ” and then went back to mop the floor.
     “Don’t you ever  26 ?” I thought. But I didn’t say anything and stormed off. She had no idea I was  27 upset. She would have been willing to talk to me had I  28  her bow important it was to me.
     At last I just blew up. “Mom, this has got to  29 . You tell me everything you want me to do and I just do it because it’s  30  than if fighting. Well, I’m sick of it.” This all came as a  31  to her.
     After my blow up, we felt like we were  32  all over in our relationship. But it’s getting better all the lime. We discuss things now and I always  33  my feelings with her.
     If you adopt Lose-Win as your basic  34  toward life, then people will wipe their dirty feet on you. You’ll also be  35  your true feelings deep inside. And that’s not healthy.

     It’s round in the center with two silver bands that go around my wrist. And all of it is made of silver. This  19  tells me the importance of time in my life.
     I received this  20  on a gray-sky day. I had to go to the airport at 9:00 am to  21  up my uncle Ali and take him to my father’s house  22  , I was late because I was  23  out with my friends.

     I got to my father’s house at 2:00 pm on the same day and looking at my angry father’s face I felt  27  of myself at that moment. After I said hi to my  28  father and tired uncle, my father asked me to sit next to him where he handed me this watch as a gift from him. Then he said, “Essa, did you have  29   with your friends today?” I answered, “Yes, father, and I’m sorry about not picking up my uncle Ali.” He said, “What you  30  was not very nice and you should be sorry for your  31  .” I was ashamed and said, “Father, I’ll never do it again, I promise.” He said, “I hope today you learned something important, and this watch will be a  32  for you.” He told me to take this watch and use it as an organizer of my 33   .
I learned a very important lesson from my father: to  34  time and never be late to get someone. This watch is  35  to me, not because of its price, but because of the lesson that I learned from it.

Every time I passed boys who were playing basketball, I stopped to silently watch them. I really envied them. But as a girl, I once thought that I could   36   play basketball.
    I like playing basketball though I'm not good at it. I've had a basketball   37   I was a child. At first, I could play freely because no one   38   when I was just a kid. But as I grew up it seemed harder and harder for me to enjoy basketball.
At school, it was always the boys who played basketball during PE classes. The girls were   39   allowed to play volleyball or badminton.
My parents did not   40   me play basketball at home. "Basketball is not fit for girls," they said.   41   I went to play basketball with my friends, boys   42    at me on the court as if I were an alien.
I was feeling   43   and had lost hope of playing basketball.   44  , something changed the first day of high school. I made some friends who also enjoyed playing basketball. They  45  me to get back on the court.
One of them told me with a smile, "Go your own   46  , let others talk." This girl would always play basketball with me. Even the boy who sat next to me in class talked about   47   with me almost every day.
I was inspired by them. Confidence and passion   48   to my heart. I am ready to stand up and play. I will play as well as I can,   49   for me, even the sky is boundless (无垠的).
Basketball has become an important part of my   50  . I am interested in it. I watch matches and enjoy playing almost every day. Through basketball, not only do I feel happy and confident, but also   51   a lot.
I've heard the NBA star Tracy McGrady say, "Nothing is impossible." It is from an advertisement on TV. I have   52   to realize that life is just like playing basket: ball. You should have an   53  . After that, just be confident and   54   going. Never give up and you'll make it sooner or later.
I love the motto of the NBA. It can  55   my strong feelings for basketball, "I love this game!"

36. C 上文silently watch和really envied暗示了该空应填never. 下文介绍的成长过程中“我”无法享受对篮球的爱也是选择线索。
37. D
38. B  一开始“我”可以自由打篮球,因为我只是个小孩,没有人会介意。
39. A  与上文it was always the boys who played basketball形成对照,应填only,表示人们对男女生学校活动的性别刻板化印象。

41. D
42. D  甚至当“我”去和朋友们打篮球时,男孩们也盯着“我”看(不理解),就好像“我”是个外星人似的。用stare at表示“盯着”。glare指“怒视”,不妥。glance指“瞥一眼”。根据语境,文中要表达的意息应是其他男孩不解地盯着自己。
43. B 学校不谁、家庭不让、男孩不理解使“我”打篮球的梦想根本无法实现,“我”感到心情沮丧。feel down引申为“感觉沮丧的”。
44. C  下文交待“我”新交的朋友鼓励“我”重新回到篮球场,这一转机在当时是无法预料的,故填Unexpectedly.

36. D。她从教师工作上退了下来,然而她一直很忙。B项有一定干扰性。keep rich意思是“富有”,从后文she was even willing to work without pay. 可以看出B项不合题意。 
37. A。从空后的that helped other businesses find jobs for old people. 可以看出,她提供的是商业服务。 
38. B。从空后的By talking with them可以看出,Anna Douglas每天都与很多老年人会面,而不是观察或安慰他们。 
39. A。通过与他们交谈,她认识到两件事情。接下来的两句便是她认识到的事情。recognize在这里是“认识到”的意思。 
40. D。老年人有未被利用的能力。这是她积极为老年人找工作发挥他们余热的原因。其他答案不合题意。 
41. B。然而老年人也有老年人的问题。A项有较大干扰性。从后文我们知道,有一位老年人不受其孙子女的欢迎,这是他面临的问题,而不是错误。 
42. D。从后文She began to write a newspaper column called“Sixty Plus”,我们知道,她为国家杂志写人物故事是以前的事。 
43. A。联系上下文Old people like herself. 是报纸的一个话题(subject),因此其它选项不合题意。

45. C。B,D项有较大干扰性。作者举的例子说明很多老年人被其孙子女误解,而不是(他们的要求)被拒绝等。 
46. A。从空后的see the truth behind a problem我们得知,Anna Douglas用的是 thinking abilities。 
47. C。从下文举的例子看,她明白的是事情的起因,因此其它选项不合题意。 
48. B。A项有较大干扰性。从前文我们知道Anna Douglas是靠写文章与老年人交流,而不是建立了咨询中心,因此A项不合题意。 
49. C。联系上下文我们可以推知,这位老年人与其孙子女关系并不融洽,因此当他进来时,孩子们就离开。 
50. C。她给这位老人建议了几种方法。 
51. B。A,C有较大干扰性。从空后的 your grandchildren's world我们得知,想了解孙子女世界的一切是不可能的。 
52. A。本空承接and前的分句而来,因此答案应在questioning和listening间选择,选项中没有questioning。 
53. B。联系上文Say good things to them and about them. 得此答案。A项有一定干扰性,空前的Never决定了此选项不正确。 
54. D。stick to在这里是“固执地坚持”。A,B均有一定干扰性。联系前文Mrs Douglas认为老人应该多听听孙子女的见解,不要太固执地坚持自己的看法。 speak out意思是“说出”,give up是“放弃”,因此不合题意。 
55. A。D有较大干扰性。Naturally意思是“自然而然地”,而Commonly指“通常情况下”。

When I was a young child, my parents often told me that it was time to teach a man everything. I didn’t understand and wondered why   21   had such a big influence   22   a person. I thought I could grow up quickly to find it out as an adult. But now,   23   I come to knock at the door of adulthood, I feel   24   to express my own   25   on this saying. I know that I’m just a high school student with very   26   experiences. There are still many things   27   me in the future, yet I would like to express myself in a childish voice.
I once read this sentence, “To make this world a happy place to live in, you’d better   28   yourself and your heart, instead of the whole world.” I was shocked. It made me think about life   29  . There are so many things around us that   30   our will. We can’t force life   31   our wishes. The earth won’t stop turning no matter whether we   32   in or not. What we can do is just to make ourselves   33   the world. I think we should learn to accept   34   life gives us, no matter whether it’s the spring sunlight or the winter snowfall, and try to be happy.
Deeply moved by the pop song Grandmother(by Jay Chou), I always try to   35   every pleasant thing in my life, but now I see I can’t catch most of the pleasant moments. It is more   36   that they slip by and leave you feeling   37  . I realize that I’m not just living   38   myself and that there are others around me I should think of. They all pay attention to my growing up, even if it’s just a little progress.
Everyone has his or her own attitude towards life, positive or   39  . it doesn’t matter, I think. There is one   40   that should be obeyed and that’s to make this world better.

22.C. 固定短语。have a/an…influence on sb. / sth. “……对……有……影响/作用”。
23.A. 第一段中说作者还是高中生,故此句应表明作者尚未成年,即在“敲成年的门之前”。本题易误选D。
24.A. 根据语境比较四个选项的意思,不难看出答案。anxious “渴望的”,be anxious to do …;worried “焦急的”;tired“疲倦的”;glad “兴奋的”。此处作者讲现在不到成年就急于表达自己的思想。本题易误选B、D。
25.B. 此句是说作者想要发表自己的观点。Beliefs“信任,信心,信仰”;confidence“信心”;expression“表达;表情”。
26.C. 因experiences是可数名词,故首先排除B和D。作者是个高中生,不可能阅历丰富,而a few表肯定,且常和quite构成quite a few,故排除。本题易误选B。
27.A. 作者才是个高中生,人生的路还长,所以“将来还有许多事等着自己去做”。Stick with “忠心于”;deal with “处理,对待,涉及”;do with “处理”,均不符合题意。
28.B. 联系上下文,要使这个世界成为极乐的生活场所,你不可以能改变整个世界,只能改变自己、改变自己的内心,使自己适应社会。vary 指“不规则或连续地改变”,exchange和force均与文意不符。
29.B. 联系上下文可以看出是“想到生活本身”,而非“想到了自己”。本题易误选A。
30.D. 联系第28空意思和下文可以看出“我们最好改变自己……我们不可能强迫生活改变……”,说明“人生总有不如意之处”,也就是go against之意。
31.D.固定短语。force sb. to do sth. “强制某人作某事”。
34.A.本题易误选B。what为accept的直接宾语,后面的no matter…提示要用what才能避免重复,而又加强了语气。
35.B.由后文的“…but now I see I can’t catch…”推知。
36.B.此句是It is likely(adj.)that+从句。A、C是副词,D项是likely的反义词。本题易误选A.
37.A. 快乐溜掉,只会留下遗憾,而不是awful(可怕的),successful(成功的),terrible(可怕的)。本题易误选B。
38.A. 根据上下文提示“人不能只为自己活着,还应想到亲朋好友及周围的人”。故选A。
39.C. or前后意思相反(积极的态度还是消极的态度),注意前后联系。
40.B. 注意与后文obey的搭配。point“点,尖端,分数,要点”;word“字、词、话、消息、诺言、命令”,本题易误选A。

Have you ever been in a meeting while someone was making a speech and realized suddenly that your   36  was a million miles away? You probably felt   37  and made up your mind to pay attention and never daydream again. Most of us, from earliest school  38  , have been told that daydreaming is a waste of time.
“ On the contrary, ” says L. Giambra, an expert in psychology, “ daydreaming is quite  39  . Without it, the mind couldn’t get done all the  40  it has to do during a normal day. You can’t possibly do all your thinking with a conscious mind.   41   , your unconscious mind is working out problems all the time. Daydreaming then may be one  42  in which the unconscious and conscious  43  of mind have silent dialogue.”
Early experts in psychology paid no attention to the importance of  44 or even considered them harmful. At one time daydreaming was thought to be a cause of some mental   45  . They did not have a better understanding of daydreams  46  the late 1980s. Eric Klinger, a professor of psychology, is the writer of the book Daydreaming. Klinger says, “ We  47  now that daydreaming is one of the main ways that we  48  our lives, learn from our experiences, and plan for our future. ” Daydreams are really a reflection(反映)on the things we  49  or the things we long for in life.
Daydreams are usually very simple and  50  , quite unlike sleep dreams, which may be  51  to understand. It’s easier to gain a  52  understanding of your life by paying close attention to your daydreams than by trying to examine your sleep dreams carefully. Daydreams help one  53  the difficult situations in life and find out a possible way for dealing with them.
Daydreams cannot be predicted(预知). They move off in   54  directions, which may be creative and full of useful ideas. For many famous artists and scientists, daydreams were, and are a main source of creative energy.
So next time you catch   55  daydreaming, don’t stop. Just pay attention to your dreams. They may be more important than you think.

42. D上文说祖父很温和,因此他很少提高嗓门和别人说话。从句子结构(倒装)和语境看,只有D项符合语境。
43. A他也从来没有和祖母吵架。
44. C由下文意义可知祖父的反映是:没有半点生气或烦恼的样子。从搭配看B项不对。
45. B此处表示“祖母她先无缘无故地骂了我一顿”,这回我故意捣乱之后让她骂就有理由了。
There are many different ways of seeing a town for the first time. One of them is to walk around it, guide-book   36   hand. Of course, we may   37   with our guide-books the history and   38   developments of a town and get to know them.   39   then, if we take out time and   40   in a town for a while, we may get to know it better. When we   41   it as a whole, we begin to have some   42   ,which even the best guide-books do not answer. Why is the town just   43   this, this shape, this plan, this size? Why do its streets   44    in this particular way, and not in any   45   why?
   Here even the best guide-book   46   us. One can’t find in it the information about how a town has developed to the   47   appearance. It may not describe the original (最初的)   48   of a town. However, one may get some idea of what I   49   look like by walking around the town. One can also imagine   50   the town was first planned and     . Then one can learn more about in what direction the town   51   to develop.
   What is the   52   of studying towns in the way? For me, it is   53   that one gets a greater depth of pleasure by visiting and seeing a town with one’s own eyes. A   54   visit to a town may help one better understand why it is attractive   55   just reading about it in a guide-book.

36. A。guide-book in hand是独立主格结构,作状语,表示方式。
37. B。了解一座城市的方式很多,其中之一就是环城徒步旅行,当然,我们还可以借助guide-book来研究(study)其历史和特有的(special)的发展并了解他们。我们不能借助导游手册来写(write)其历史,也不需要讲述(tell)和记忆(remember)其历史。
38. D。special是指这个城市所特有的。
39. A。上文讲我们可以借助导游手册研究其历史和发展,下文讲如果我们从容一点,在一个城市小住几天,则对其了解更多。此间有转折的意思。
40. C。
41. A。look at 在本题中有“考虑,判断”的意思,look at …as a whole意思是“从整体上看”。
42. D。下文有动词answer,此处是先行词,在定语从句中用answer的宾语,只有questions才能构成动宾关系。
43. C。介词like意思是“像”。

48. C。the original design of a town一座城市最初的设计。
49. A。what it used to look like 城市过去的样子,与上文the original design of a town相响应。
50. B。选项A是疑问代词,用在此处语法结构错误;选项C和D分别指这座城市首次建造的时间和地点,与上文the original design of a town和what it used to look like没有联系;选项B表示这座城市设计建造的方式。
51. D。与上句一致,意思是人们还能更多地了解这座城市未来继续发展方向。
52. A。point在本句的意思是“用途,目的”。Begin your work now. There’s no point in wasting time. 现在就开始你的工作吧,耗时间没用。
53. B。nearly几乎;generally一般地;hardly几乎不,都不符合题意。simply仅仅,只是。作者以这种方式去了解一座城市的原因很简单,仅仅是通过亲眼去看,去感受一个人就能更获得更大的快乐。
54. D。personal亲自的,亲身的,与上一句里的visiting and seeing a town with one’s own eyes意思相一致。
55. B。前面有比较级better,这里当然用介词than。
