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 busperson, 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(辱骂) 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(愤怒的) 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 for us
C. keep calm to fully enjoy our holiday season
D. prepare for whatever difficulites we meet in the holiday season
37. Why did Metcalf ask for the traveller’s auto-graph?
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 very angry
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 a busy holiday season
B. it’s necessary to show our appreciation of 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(前辈) 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(未被打动的). “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(日益衰落), 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 research on it
43. The fourth paragraph mainly intends to _____.
A. analyse(分析)which part of the world is most affected by global dimming
B. provide further evidence for Ohmura’s dis-covery
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. 3%    B. 7%  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
Girls like writing and reading; boys like math and science. At least that’s the old idea many people have. But a new survey shows that girls in elementary school actually like math and science better than language arts.
Researchers at the University of Miami in Ohio surveyed nearly 2,000 girls in grades 4 through 8 at twenty schools and had them rate their enjoyment of four subjects: science, math, language arts and social studies, on a scale(等级) of 1 (strongly dislike) to 5 (really like).
Fourth-grade girls clearly liked science the best; their average enjoyment levels were:
● 4.11 for science
● 3.85 for math
● 3.5 for language arts
● 3.49 for social studies
As girls get older though, they seem to like science and math less, with science’s average likeability score falling to 3.29 for girls in 8th grade. But these subjects aren’t alone, as girls seemed to lose a little interest in every subject. Likeability for social studies fell to 2.91 for 8th graders. “It doesn’t seem like girls are losing interest in science and mathematics any more than they lose interest in other subjects,” said study team member Jennifer Blue, a physics professor at Miami.
Just why girls lose interest in all these subjects is something researchers haven’t worked out. But the good news, they say, is that girls regain some of their interest in science in college—Miami, for example, has more female botany, microbiology(微生物学) and zoology majors than male majors.
46. It’s commonly believed that ______.
A. boys are more intelligent than girls
B. boys are more interested in math and science than girls
C. boys and girls like math and science
D. boys and girls like math and science better than language arts
47. The survey was carried out among ______.
A. primary school girl students B. high school girl students
C. five grades     D. twenty colleges
48. According to the survey result, which subject are fourth-grade girls least interested in?
A. Science.  B. Math.  C. Language arts.  D. Social studies.
49. Researchers at the University of Miami found in their survey that girls seem to ______.
A. be less interested in their studies as they get older
B. regain some of their interest in science as they get older
C. like science better than social studies as they get older
D. like writing and reading better than boys as they get older
50. It can be inferred that the researchers at the University of Miami are trying to find out ______.
A. the ways to help girls regain their interest in science
B. the causes why girls lose interest in almost every subject
C. why more female college students are interested in science
D. why young girls like science better than language arts
D
Mary Schaefer has always been interested in how the human element plays out in what, and how, things get done in the workplace. Mary’s belief is that organizations are composed of unique human beings requiring individual attention in order to make the most of what they can contribute to an organization, and at the same time meet their own specific needs for meaningful work. She formed her company, Artemis Path, to help managers and employees see how they can get more from themselves and each other by working with what makes us human beings—an unexpected resourcefulness and energy that can only come from a respectful and co-operative work environment.
Having started as a computer systems analyst, over time she noticed that she was more interested in how people reacted to changing job expectations and a changing work environment, how people reacted to learning new skills, and how to overcome the obstacles to that.
As she started pursuing a career in Human Resources and a Master’s in HR, Mary was chosen for several work assignments that allowed her to try out her vision for how people can be more positively engaged in the workplace. She took an active role in leading hundreds of survivors of corporate downsizing to see how they could make positive choices moving forward, rather than be overwhelmed by constant job insecurity.
While leading a manufacturing project team made up of several shop-floor employees, Mary worked with every person on her team on their skill-development needs. In just a few years, several were promoted and were able to significantly expand their career possibilities. Mary was recognized for this and more with an award for being a “champion of human potential”.
51. Mary Schaefer formed her company Artemis Path to ______.
A. help managers employ workers  
B. develop human resources 
C. solve the problems in the workplace
D. meet people’s needs for meaningful work
52. Speaking of work efficiency, Mary Schaefer thinks highly of ______.
A. natural environment     B. managers’ role in the team
C. spirit of respect and cooperation  D. individual attention
53. The underlined word “overwhelm” in Para. 3 is the nearest in meaning to _____.
A. defeat   B. frighten   C. satisfy      D. ruin  
54. In her work, Mary tried to work out the following EXCEPT ______. 
A. how people reacted to changing job expectations
B. how people reacted to a changing work environment
C. how people get individual attention
D. how people can be more positively engaged in the workplace
55. Why did Mary get the title of “champion of human potential”?
A. Because she paid attention to the workers’ needs.  
B. Because she was very successful as a businesswoman.
C. Because she treated her employees kindly.
D. Because she developed the employees’ potential greatly.

Japanese officials are struggling to prevent the spread of mad cow disease. Japan’s first case of mad cow was reported in September. The Agriculture Ministry confirmed last month that second cow was infected. Japan is the only country in Asia where mad cow disease is known to have spread. The disease is officially known as Bovine Spongiform Encephalitis,or BSE.It causes holes in the brains. Cows act strangely before they die. So it is called mad cow disease.
Scientists believe cows get the disease by eatine food made form infected animals. Since September, Janpan has banned imports and use of feed made form animal remains. Recently, the Agriculture Ministry announced plans to destroy abort five thousand cows that may have been given the feed.
Sales of Japanese beef products have dropped sharply in the past three months. Since Octoter, Japanese officials have tested all cows that are killed for their meat. Some scientists question the testing. They say the disease often cannot be identified in young animals.
Scientists say it’s horrible to eat infected meat that may cause a similar brain disease in humans. It cannot be cured.
Questions:
56. What is mad cow disease officially called?
57. How many cases of mad cow disease were reported in Japan according to the report?
58. How do cows get the disease?

 I’m writing to tell you a good piece of news. We’ve just moved into a new apartment. It is much bigger than our old one and has more beautiful surroundings. We now have three bedrooms, two big living rooms, a kitchen, a dining room and a bathroom. When I look out of the window, I can see green grass and lovely flowers around. And in front of the building, there’s a big open area with some sports equipment for neighbors to take exercise. Mum says that with three bedrooms, we can have a guest room. So next time you come, do stay with us.
                                                                         Yours,
Li Hua
