My l4-year-old son, John, and I spotted the coat at the same time. It was hanging on a rack(架子) at a secondhand clothing store in Northampton Mass.
  16    the other coats drooped, this one looked as if it were    17    itself up. The thick, black wool was soft and unworn. It had a black velvet collar, beautiful    18   , a Fifth Avenue label and an    19    price of $28. We looked at each other, saying nothing, but John’s eyes gleamed(闪光). Dark, woolen topcoats were    20    just then with teenage boys, but could cost several hundred dollars now.
John slid his arms down into the sleeves and    21    the coat. He turned from side to side,    22    himself in the mirror with a serious, studied    23    that soon changed into a smile. The    24    was perfect.
John wore the coat to school the next day and came home wearing a big smile. “How did the kids like your coat?” I asked. “They    25    it,” he said, carefully folding it over the back of a chair and    26    it flat.
Over the next few weeks, a    27    came over John. Agreement replaced hesitation,    28   , reasoned discussion replaced argument. He became more polite and    29   to please. “Good dinner, Mom,” he would say every evening. He would    30    loan his younger brother his tapes and    31    him the niceties(礼节) of behavior; without a word of    32   , he would carry in wood for the stove.
John and I both know we should    33    mistake a person’s clothes for the real person within them. But there is something to be said for wearing a standard of    34    for the world to see, for practicing standards of excellence in speech and behavior, and for    35    what is on the inside to what is on the outside.

三、阅读理解(共20小题;每小题2分,满分40分)
A
The holidays are coming! And we all know what that means... it’s that time of year when malls, stores, restaurants, streets, and freeways are busier and crazier than ever. This holiday season, while you’re out shopping and running around, why not go out of your way to say hello to the hotel cleaning person, the flight attendant, the restaurant bus person, the hotel clerk, the garbage collector, the gardener...?
A wonderful storyteller by the name of C.W. Metcalf told of a man in the airport who was verbally abusing an airline ticketing agent. The traveler had missed his flight due to mechanical difficulties and was being loud, aggressive, and just plain mean to the poor ticketing agent, who obviously had no control over the plane’s condition. Metcalf went up to the abusive man and asked, “Can I have your autograph?” When the man, puzzled, asked, “Why do you want my autograph?” Metcalf responded, “Because I’ve never met the center of the universe before!”
I once had one of those awful flying experiences where flight after flight was delayed.  What should have been a three-hour flight turned into a fifteen-hour, multiple-city, exhausting nightmare, causing me to miss meetings in my intended city. At 3 A.M., by the time I was finally within thirty minutes of landing at my destination airport, I suddenly smelled something wonderful: the flight attendants were baking chocolate chip cookies! That sweet, comforting aroma filled the airline cabin, and our small group of 20 passengers waited with anticipation as the flight attendants made their way down the aisle, handing each of us a warm cookie. I instantly abandoned my plans for an enraged letter-writing campaign against the airline and was effortlessly relieved of all my anger and exhaustion—all by one soft, freshly baked cookie.
36. The purpose of the writer is to tell us to _______.
A. bring the spirit of humanity into the holiday season
B. pay respect to those who provide service to us
C. keep calm to fully enjoy our holiday season
D. prepare for whatever difficulties we meet in the holiday season
37. Why did Metcalf ask for the traveller’s autograph?
A. To teach the traveller a good lesson.
B. To give the traveller some comfort.
C. To make the traveller realize that he was too self-centered.
D. To make peace between the traveller and the airline ticketing agent.
38. Before the writer was given the warm cookie, he _______.
A. was quite hungry   
B. was in a rage
C. was terrified from his nightmare    
D. was eager to go home
39. The last paragraph implies that __________.
A. understanding is the key to solving conflicts
B. there could be nothing better in serving the customers
C. forgiveness works better than complaints
D. good service and consideration can help solve the problems
40. The writer of the passage would probably agree that _______.
A. it’s quite natural for one to get angry in busy holiday season
B. it’s necessary to show our appreciation to the service we receive
C. those in service should put the interest of the customers above anything else
D. we shouldn’t make a complaint unless we have enough evidence
B
In 1985, a geography researcher called Atsumu Ohmura at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology got the shock of his life. As part of his studies into climate and atmospheric radiation, Ohmura was checking levels of sunlight recorded around Europe when he made an astonishing discovery. Compared to similar measurements recorded by his predecessors in the 1960s, Ohmura’s results suggested that levels of solar radiation striking the Earth’s surface had declined by more than 10% in three decades. Sunshine, it seemed, was on the way out.
The finding went against all scientific thinking. When Ohmura eventually published his discovery in 1989, the science world was distinctly unimpressed. “It was ignored,” he says.
It turns out that Ohmura was the first to document a dramatic effect that scientists are now calling “global dimming”. Records show that over the past 50 years the average amount of sunlight reaching the ground has gone down by almost 3% a decade. It’s too small an effect to see with the naked eye, but it has implications for everything from climate change to solar power and even the future sustainability of plant photosynthesis(光合作用).
Although Ohmura was the first to report global dimming, he wasn’t alone. In fact, the scientific record now shows several other research papers published during the 1990s on the subject, all finding that light levels were falling significantly. Among them they reported that sunshine in Ireland was on the wane, that both the Arctic and the Antarctic were getting darker and that light in Japan, the supposed land of the rising sun, was actually falling.
But what causes global dimming? The few experts who have studied the effect believe it’s down to air pollution. Tiny particles of soot(煤烟) or chemical compounds like sulphates reflect sunlight and they also promote the formation of bigger, longer lasting clouds. “The cloudy times are getting darker,” says Cohen, at the Volcani Centre. “If it’s cloudy then it’s darker, but when it’s sunny things haven’t changed much.”
41. Which of the following would be the best title for the passage?
A. Goodbye sunshine 
B. The shock of life
C. An ignored question  
D. Atsumu Ohmura and his discovery
42. When Atsumu Ohmura made the discovery known, the other scientists  _________.
A. were greatly shocked    
B. accepted it in time   
C. didn’t take it seriously    
D. were encouraged to do more reseach on it
43. The fourth paragraph mainly intends to ________.
A. analyse which part of the world is most affected by global dimming
B. provide further evidence for Ohmura’s discovery
C. report the continuous effect of global dimming
D. show the support given by other scientists to Ohmura
44. According to the passage, since 1985, the average amount of sunlight reaching the ground has gone down by about _________.
A. 6%     B. 10%    C. 15 %    D. 20%
45. Scientists believe that global dimming is due to __________.
A. climate change   B. solar activity C. formation of clouds D. human activity
C
The first people to reach North America were Asian hunters and nomads. Some experts think they crossed the land bridge that connected the two continents about 30, 000 to 34, 000 years ago. Once in Alaska, it took these first North Americans, the ancestors of Native American tribes, thousands of years to work their way south to what is now the United States. Evidence of early life in North America has been found at sites throughout North and South America, indicating that life was probably already well established in much of the Western Hemisphere by some time prior to 10,000 B.C.
Around that time the mammoth(猛犸) began to die out and the bison took its place as a principal source of food and hides for these early North Americans. Indians in what is now central Mexico led the way, cultivating corn, squash(南瓜属植物) and beans, perhaps as early as 8,000 B.C. Slowly, this knowledge spread northward. By 3,000 B.C., a primitive type of corn was being grown in the river valleys of New Mexico and Arizona. Then the first signs of irrigation began to appear, and by 300 B.C., signs of early village life.
Indian customs and culture at the time were extraordinarily diverse, as could be expected, given the expanse of the land and the many different environments to which they had adapted. By all accounts, Indian society in North America was closely tied to the land.
The first Europeans to reach North America were Icelandic Vikings, led by Leif Ericson, in about the year 1000. In 1492, the Italian navigator Christopher Columbus, acting on behalf of the Spanish crown, sailed west from Europe and landed on one of the Bahama Islands. Columbus never saw the mainland United States, but the first explorations of the continental United States were launched from the Spanish possessions(领地) that he helped establish. 
46. How is this passage organized?
A. In order of preference.    B. In order of time.
C. In order of area.      D. In order of importance.
47. We know from this passage that the first attempt at agriculture appeared ________.
A. after the Indians entered North America
B. before the Asian hunters crossed the land bridge
C. after the first Europeans reached North America
D. after Columbus found the mainland of the United States
48. Which of the following statements is TRUE?
A. Early village came into being almost at the same time as agriculture.
B. Bison is not a main source of food after the 10, 000 BC.
C. Evidence of early life could be found in much of the Western Hemisphere.
D. The life of first Americans is confined to South America.
49. What contribution did Christopher Columbus make according to this passage?
A. He was among the first Europeans to reach North America.
B. He set up the first base on North America continent.
C. He and his men took possession of the Americas.
D. He paved the way for later European explorers.  
50. It can be inferred from this passage that ________.
A. people from different regions tend to keep their own customs
B. earlier Asians preferred hunting to planting
C. different environments have great effects on people’s customs
D. earlier Asians only lived in the north areas of North America like Alaska
D
The trend in everyday conversation is to use grandiose(浮夸的)words.“Out- standing” is new “good,” “amazing” is the new “OK,” and “huge” is the new “big.”
I was in a restaurant in D.C. last weekend and everything I asked was answered in superlatives.
Me: How’s the salmon(鲑鱼)?
  Server: Fantastic!
  Me: Does it come with rice?
Server: Absolutely!
Would a “good” and a “yes” have been sufficient? Of course!
My father is an average-sized man. He hasn’t gained weight (or height) for the past 30 years. Ergo, his size remains the same. But in the same amount of time, his T-shirt size has gone from small / medium to medium to large to extra large.
Upon reflection, the reason for all this colossal-speak is clear: we are bored with our fantastic, wonderful lives. We want the next-next thing now. Now!
And we also want others to think that we still care, that we can still be delighted, that we know that everything is just great, even when deep inside we know it can’t be. Everything can’t be great.
I’m not a scientist, and my methods of proof leave a little to be desired, or a lot to be desired, or an immensity(无限). And to be honest, I guess I’d rather live in a world where people were overly excited than depressed.
But listen to the voices around you. Listen to your own voices. There is nothing on the news that is good or bad, only things that are wonderful or devastating. Even the weather is either beautiful or horrible.
Listen the next time when someone asks you something and you agree, because when you could simply say “yes,” instead you will say “absolutely” or “without doubt” or “Oh, yeah, unquestionably—absolutely without doubt.”
Have people forgotten what it is like to be OK? Simply OK with what they have and who they are?
If everything is outstanding, if everything is the most amazing thing ever, is anything ever amazing at all?
51. Which of the following isn’t a grandiose word according to the passage?
A. Fantastic.  B. Great.   C. Good.   D. Amazing.
52. The underlined word “Ergo” in the passage probably means “______”.
A. However      B. Instead      C. Meanwhile     D. Therefore
53. In the author’s opinion, the reason why people use grandiose words may be that ______.
A. they are depressed                      B. they can still be delighted
C. they are bored with their present lives       D. everything can’t be great  
54. What’s the author’s attitude toward the phenomenon that people like to use grandiose words?
A. He approves of it.                  B. He is against it.        
C. He is indifferent to it.               D. He doesn’t express his opinion.
55. What would be the best title for the text?
A. Is anything ever amazing at all?  B. The trend in everyday conversation
C. The reason for colossal-speak     D. Everything is outstanding in the world

四、写作(共两节,满分35分)
第一节:阅读表达(每小题2分,满分10分)阅读下面短文,根据要求完成后面所提问题。
Doctors say anger can be an extremely damaging emotion, unless you learn how to deal with it.They warn that anger can lead to heart disease, stomach problems, headaches, emotional problems and possibly cancer.
Anger is a normal emotion that we all feel from time, to time.Some people express anger openly in a calm reasonable way.Others burst with anger, and scream and yell.Yet a few people keep their anger inside.They can not or will hot express it.This is called repressing anger.
For years many doctors thought that repressing anger was more dangerous to a person's health than expressing it.They said that when a person is angry, the brain releases the same hormones (荷尔蒙).They speed the heart rate, raise blood pressure, or sugar into the blood, etc.In general, the person feels excited and ready to act.
Some doctors say that both repressing and expressing anger can be dangerous.They believe that those who express anger violently may be more likely to develop heart disease, and they believe that those who keep their anger inside may face a greater danger of high blood pressure.
Doctors say the solution is learning how to deal with anger.They say the first step is to admit that you are angry and to recognize the real cause of the anger, men decide if the cause is serious enough to get angry about.If it is, they say, "Do not express your anger while angry.Wait until your anger has cooled down and you are able to express yourself calmly and reasonably."
Doctors say that a good way to deal with anger is to find humor in the situation that has made you angry.They said that laughter is much healthier than anger.

1-15   DDBAA    DADBC     CCAAB  
16-35   ABDCB     DAADB     CCBDC     BADAC
36-55   ACBDB     ACBBD     BACDC     CDCBA 
 One possible version:
It hasn’t been long since sitcoms were first brought in from abroad. If my memory serves me right, “I love my home” was the first mainland sitcoms, and it proves to be a long-lasting success. “I love my home” has been shown on TV over and over again. Still, it draws thousands of sitcom fans.
Sitcoms are a new movement of TV dramas. The plot of a sitcom usually centers on a family or a certain place. First, a sitcom should be amusing. It’s not surprising that viewers are frequently reduced to laughter from time to time. Second, sitcoms have a fixed major cast. The characters in a sitcom gain a high popularity thanks to their wonderful performances. Thirdly each episode has a relatively complete story, so viewers can still enjoy it even though they miss some of the episodes.
As I’ve seen above, sitcoms will still be in the trend in China in the years to come.
