A recent study shows that more years of school could help students get higher scores on intelligence tests. That was the finding of a study of teenage males in Norway. Now, other research shows that ___41___ activity may help students do better in their classes.
The research comes as educators in some countries are reducing time for activities like physical education. They are using the time ___42___ for academic subjects like math and reading.
Researchers at VU University Medical Centre in Amsterdam reviewed the results of fourteen studies, which included more than fifty-five thousand children, aged six to eighteen.
Researcher Amika Singh says the studies showed a link between physical activity and scores on subjects such as math, English and reading. “Based on the results of our study we can conclude that being physically active is ___43___ for academic performance.”
Ms. Singh offers some possible explanations. “There are, first, physiological explanations, like more blood ___44___, and so more oxygen to the brain. Being physically active means there are more hormones produced like endorphins. And endorphins make your stress level lower and your mood improved, which means you also perform better.”
Also, students ___45___ in organized sports learn rules and how to follow them. This could improve their classroom behaviour and help them keep their mind on their work.
The study leaves some questions ___46___, however. Ms. Singh says it is not possible to say whether the amounts or kind of activity ___47___ the level of academic improvement. This is because of differences among the studies.
Also, they were mostly observational studies. An observational study is where researchers do not do controlled comparisons. They only describe what they observe. So they might observe a link that students who are more active often have better grades. But that does not ___48___ mean being active was the cause of those higher grades. Therefore, more high-quality studies are needed to ___49___ their findings.
Still, the general finding was that physically active kids are more likely to do better in school. Ms. Singh says schools should consider that finding before they cut physical education programs.
III.    Reading Comprehension
Section A
Directions: For each blank in the following passages there are four words or phrases marked A, B, C and D. Fill in each blank with the word or phrase that best fits the context.
 Many years ago I was on a bicycle trip through some exceedingly picturesque (如画的) countryside. Suddenly, dark clouds piled up overhead and rain began to fall, but strange to ___50___, several hundred yards ahead of me the sun shone brilliantly. Riding, however, as rapidly as I could, I found it ___51___ to get into the clear. The clouds with their rain kept advancing faster than I could race forward. I continued this unequal contest for an exhausting half hour, ___52___ realizing that I could not win my way to the bright area ahead of me.
Then it dawned upon me that I was wasting my strength in unimportant hurry, while paying no attention whatsoever to the landscape ___53___ which I was making the trip. The storm could not last forever and the discomfort was not unendurable. Indeed, there was much to look at which might ___54___ have escaped me. As I gazed about with sharpened ___55___, I saw colours and lines and shapes that would have appeared differently under brilliant light. The rain mists (薄雾) which now ___56___ the wooded hills and the fresh clearness of the different greens were entrancing (迷人的). My annoyance at the rain was gone and my eagerness to ___57___ it disappeared. It had provided me with a new view and helped me understand that the ___58___ of beauty and satisfaction may be found close at hand within the ___59___ of one’s own sensibilities.
It made me think, then and later, about other matters to which this incident was related. It helped me realize that there is no sense in my ___60___ ever to flee from circumstances and conditions which cannot be avoided but which I might bravely ___61___ and frequently mend and often turn to good account. I know that half the battle is won if I can face trouble with courage, __62__ with spirit, and triumph with humility. It has become ever clearer to me that danger is far from disaster, that defeat may be the forerunner of final ___63___, and that, in the last analysis, all achievement is dangerously weak ___64___ based on enduring principles of moral conduct.

Section B
Directions: Read the following three passages. Each passage is followed by several questions or unfinished statements. For each of them there are four choices marked A, B, C and D. Choose the one that fits best according to the information given in the passage you have just read.
 
 (A)
  Many children first learn the value of money by receiving an allowance (pocket money). The purpose is to let children learn from experience at an age when financial mistakes are not very costly.
The amount of money that parents give to their children to spend as they wish differs from family to family. Timing is another consideration. Some children get a weekly allowance. Others get a monthly allowance.
In any case, parents should make clear what, if anything, the child is expected to pay for with the money.
At first, young children may spend all of their allowance soon after they receive it. If they do this, they will learn the hard way that spending must be done within a budget. Parents are usually advised not to offer more money until the next allowance.
The object is to show young people that a budget demands choices between spending and saving. Older children may be responsible enough to save money for larger costs, like clothing or electronics.
Many people who have written on the subject of allowances say it is not a good idea to pay your child for work around the home. These jobs are a normal part of family life.
Paying children to do extra work around the house, however, can be useful. It can even provide an understanding of how a business works.
Allowances give children a chance to experience the things they can do with money. They can share it in the form of gifts or giving to a good cause. They can spend it by buying things they want. Or they can save and maybe even invest it.
Saving helps children understand that costly goals require sacrifice: you have to cut costs and plan for the future.
Requiring children to save part of their allowance can also open the door to future saving and investing. Many banks offer services to help children and teenagers learn about personal finance.
A savings account is an excellent way to learn about the power of compound interest.
Compounding works by paying interest on interest. So, for example, one dollar invested at two percent interest for two years will earn two cents in the first year. The second year, the money will earn two percent of one dollar and two cents, and so on.
That may not seem like a lot. But over time it adds up.
 
65. Why are children given an allowance?
  A. To keep the custom of giving.
  B. To let them pay for their own favourites.
  C. To give them a chance to spend money however they like.
  D. To provide them with a chance to experience money matters.
 
 
66. What will children learn when they spend all the allowance soon after they receive it?
  A. They will find that spending is the hardest thing to do.
  B. They will learn that spending should be planned beforehand.
  C. They will know that spending is not so hard as they have imagined.
D. They begin to understand that spending should be done as hard as they can.
67. Which of the following is NOT an advantage of saving money?
  A. It enables children to get better bank services.
  B. It opens the door to future savings.
C. It enables children to learn to invest in the future.
D. It helps children understand costly goals require sacrifice.
 
(B)
  A brand is a name, word, sign, symbol, design, or a combination of these, intended to identify the goods or services of a company or a group of companies. Another purpose of a brand is to contrast one company from another. The most important skill of professional marketers is the ability to create, maintain, protect, and enhance the brands of their products and services. Branding has become so important that today hardly any company or product is without one. Therefore, brand management is an increasingly important element in marketing.
  Brand power refers to the relative strength of a company’s brand in the minds of consumers, and can influence consumers’ choice of products. Brands are powerful to the extent that they give high brand loyalty and strong brand associations, name recognition, perceived quality and other assets to a company. A strong brand can be one of a company’s most important assets.
  High brand power provides a company with many competitive advantages. A powerful brand enjoys a high level of consumer brand awareness and loyalty. Because consumers expect stores to carry the brand, the company has more bargaining power when negotiating with retailers (零售商). And because the brand name brings high credibility, a company with a strong brand can more easily launch new products with the same brand name.
  Many companies use the advantage of a strong brand power strategically to expand their business. When a company introduces an additional item with a new flavour, form, colour or package size in a given product category and under the same brand name, it is called a line extension. Another strategy is called brand extension. This involves the use of a successful brand name to launch new or modified products in a new category, thereby employing brand recognition in order to increase sales of new products.
   Brand recognition is certainly important. Because consumers often hold long-standing perceptions about brands, high brand power ensure a company continued sales of its products.
 
68. What does the word “assets” in the 2nd paragraph mean?
  A. points    B. advantages    C. aspects    D. elements
 69. All of the following statements are the advantages of a high brand power EXCEPT that______.
  A. a high brand wins the loyalty of consumers
  B. a high brand usually sets a much higher price
  C. it’s easy for a high brand company to launch new products
  D. a high brand company is more competitive when doing business with retailers
 70. A brand extension ______.
  A. happens when the company is developing a new product
  B. means the expansion of a company’s business in its established field
  C. takes place when the company introduces a similar item but with a new colour
  D. refers to the use of an established brand name to promote a new product in a new category
 71. What might be the best title of this passage?
  A. Brand Power       B. Famous Brands
  C. Company Brands      D. Brand Products
 
 (C)
There is a famous story about British poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge. He was writing a poem when he was interrupted by a knock at the door.
  This was an age before the telephone. Someone was delivering a message. When Coleridge got back to his poem, he had lost his inspiration. His poetic mood had been broken by the knock on his door. His unfinished poem, which could otherwise have been a masterpiece, would now never be more than a fragment (片段).
  This story tells how unexpected communication can destroy an important thought. That brings us to the invention of the cellphone.
  The most common complaint about cellphones is that people talk on them to the annoyance of people around them. But more damaging may be the cellphone’s disruption (中断) of our thoughts.
  We have already entered a golden age of little white lies about our cellphones, and this is by and large a healthy, protective development. “I didn’t hear it ring” or “I didn’t realize my phone had shut off” are among the lies we tell to give ourselves space where we’re beyond reach.
  The notion of being unreachable is not a new concept — we have “Do Not Disturb” signs on the doors of hotel rooms. So why must we feel guilty when it comes to cellphones? Why must we apologize if we decide to shut off the cellphone for a while?
  The problem is that we come from a long-established tradition of difficulty with distance communication. Until the recent mass use of cellphones, it was easy to communicate with someone next to us or a few feet away, but difficult with someone across town, the country or the globe. We came to take it for granted.
  But cellphones make long-distance communication common, and endanger our time by ourselves. Now time alone, or a conversation with someone next to us which cannot be interrupted by a phone, is something to be cherished (珍惜). Even cellphone devotees, myself usually included, can’t help at times wanting to throw their phones away, or curse the day they were invented.
  But we don’t and won’t, and there really is no need. All that’s required to take back our private time is a general social recognition that we have the right to it.
  In other words, we have to develop a healthy contempt (轻视) for the rings of our own phones. Given the ease of making and receiving cellphone calls, if we don’t talk to the caller right now, we surely will shortly later.
  A cellphone call deserves no greater priority than a random word from the person next to us. Though the call on my cellphone may be the one-in-a-million from Steven Spielberg — who has finally read my novel and wants to make it his next movie. But most likely it is not, and I’m better off thinking about the idea I just had for a new story, or the slice of pizza I’ll eat for lunch.
 72. What is the point of the story about the poet Coleridge?
  A. To direct readers’ attention to the main topic.
  B. To attract readers’ attention to read his poems.
C. To show how important inspiration is to a poet.
  D. To emphasize the disadvantage of not having a cellphone.
 73. Why does the writer mention the “Do Not Disturb” sign?
  A. To encourage us to use the cellphone as much as we can.
B. To persuade us not to worry about the ring of the cellphone.
  C. To inform us that the cellphone is not to be disturbed in our life.
  D. To ask us to make an apology when we don’t answer the cellphone call.
 74. What does the underlined word “it” (Paragraph 7) most probably refer to?
A. answering a call from afar
B. talking to friend next to us
C. using the cellphone to chat with friends
D. communicating to keep the long-established friendship
 75. What can we infer from the last paragraph?
  A. Cellphones require more attention than any other invention.
  B. We sometimes throw the phone away when it is too disturbing.
C. The writer would rather continue his own work than be interrupted by the ring.
  D. We should give priority to the cellphone as it has brought us so much convenience.
 
 Section C
Directions: Read the following text and choose the most suitable heading from A-F for each paragraph. There is one extra heading which is not needed.
 A. The way to get involved
B. Websites to check out
C. Join a forum you are interested in
D. Describe your personal interest
E. Online dos and dont’s
F. Online information
 People are always saying that you should make friends with native speakers to practise the language. Now in the Internet age, that’s much easier.
  The best way to strike up a friendship with English speakers online is to find those you share a common interest with. If you’re able to discuss a hobby like movies or basketball together it will be much easier to start those friendships.
  
76.
Getting involved in a forum based on your interests is also a great way to learn words that you might never have met in class. Different people may join different groups or forums, and you have to find the one that suits your case.
 
77.
So, where do you go to find English speakers with like-minded interests? The most obvious places to look are Google and Yahoo. These popular Internet sites are bursting with groups and forums.
  Once you’ve found a group that suits you, spend some time thinking about what you want to say in your first post. It’s a good idea to introduce yourself, give your nickname and age, say where you’re from, and tell what your interests are.
 
78.
  This is generally the fastest way to get involved in a forum and to introduce yourself to others. On a movie forum you could ask something like, “I’ve just seen the movie Revolutionary Road. I thought it was brilliant. Has anyone read the book?”
 
79.
l To find someone to talk to using Skype, check out his site. Simply put Skype in the search engine and that will bring up the many people who have posted a desire to practice their English using Skype. Its chatrooms are also good places to find English speakers.
l  mylanguagexchange.com: The website is an online language exchange community. There are even lesson plans to help structure the conversation.
lThe British Council’s English online website is another place with lively forums worth checking out. Or you could join a Facebook group. There are thousands on the website.
 
80.
One common mistake people make when they approach English speakers online is to begin by saying that they want to be friends to improve their English.
While this may be the truth, don’t say it. It suggests you have little interest in a real friendship.
Be imaginative in approaching people. Perhaps you see that someone is from a certain country that you would like to visit. Tell them so, and then ask if they can tell you a bit about it. Then tell them about yours.
 
Section D
Directions: Read the passage carefully. Then answer the questions or complete the statements in the fewest possible words.
A loving person lives in a loving world. A hostile person lives in a hostile world. Everyone you meet is your mirror. Mirrors have a very particular function. They reflect the image in front of them. Just as a physical mirror serves as the vehicle to reflection, so do all of the people in our lives.
  When we see something beautiful such as a flower garden, that garden serves as a reflection. In order to see the beauty in front of us, we must be able to see the beauty inside of ourselves. When we love someone, it’s a reflection of loving ourselves. We have often heard things like “I love how I am when I’m with that person.” That simply translates into “I’m able to love me when I love that other person.” Oftentimes, when we meet someone new, we feel as though we “click (一见如故)”. Sometimes it’s as if we’ve known each other for a long time. That feeling can come from sharing similarities.
  Just as the “mirror” or other person can be a positive reflection, it is more likely that we’ll notice it when it has a negative connotation (含义). For example, it’s easy to remember times when we have met someone we’re not particularly crazy about. We may have some criticism in our mind about the person. This is especially true when we get to know someone with whom we would rather spend less time.
  Frequently, when we dislike qualities in other people, ironically, it’s usually the mirror that’s speaking to us.
  I began questioning myself further each time I encountered someone that I did not particularly like. Each time, I asked myself, “What is it about that person that I don’t like?” and then “Is there something similar in me?” In every instance, I could see a piece of that quality in me, and sometimes I had to really get very introspective (反省的). So what did that mean?
  It means that just as I can get annoyed or disturbed when I notice that aspect in someone else, I better re-examine my character and consider making some changes. Even if I’m not willing to make a drastic change, at least I consider how I might modify some of the things that I’m doing.
  At times we meet someone new and feel distant, disconnected, or disgusted. Although we don’t want to believe it, it can be a great learning lesson to figure out what part of the person is being reflected in you. It’s simply just another way to create more self-awareness.
 
(Note: Answer the questions or complete the statements in NO MORE THAN 12 WORDS.)
81. Everyone we meet is our mirror because ______.
82. ______ is the reflection of our loving others.
83. How can we benefit from a person who has the qualities that we don’t like?
84. What can we do to develop our self-awareness when we meet someone new and feel distant, disconnected or disgusted?

Section B  
Directions: In Section B, you will hear two short passages, and you will be asked three questions on each of the passages. The passages will be read twice, but the questions will be spoken only once. When you hear a question, read the four possible answers on your paper and decide which one would be the best answer to the question you have heard.
 
Questions 11 through 13 are based on the following passage.
Surveys suggest the Danes are the happiest people in the world, and the reason for this is trust.
  From Erasmus University’s World Database of Happiness to a World Values Survey from the University of Michigan in late June, the 5.5 million people of the Scandinavian state have ranked top in most happiness surveys for the last 20 years.
  As economists search for better ways to measure well-being than pure wealth, they say the Danes have a tradition of equality and trust that is not seen in many other places. They are also among the world’s most financially successful people.
  However, Denmark’s economy has not escaped the current market problems. Its stock exchange is down around 37 percent so far this year.
  Soren Christiansen, 32, enjoys relaxing with his girlfriend in their rent apartment in one of Copenhagen’s newly built housing developments. He said trust creates a safer everyday life for him.
  “It makes me happy to live in a country where you can walk safely around and you do not have to be afraid,” he said.
  Danish diplomat Klavs Holm said Danes are comfortable with simple pleasures like swimming in the harbor on a summer’s day, which could be thought too risky elsewhere.
  “I see women riding bikes with their kids on the back, through the rain. They look happy. The Danes are devoted to biking and to fighting global warming. These values are more important to Danes than most other people,” he said.
  The Danish Island of Samso, where people have achieved self-sufficiency in renewable power, is one example of the community programs that Denmark has to offer.
  “Danish trust is connected with their strong economy,” said Economist Justina Fischer. “If you trust someone in the market you have lower transaction costs. You do not even need a contract because you trust his or her words.”
Questions:
11.   According to the article, what is the reason for the Danish happiness?
12.   Which of the following is one of the simple pleasures of the Danes?
13.   Which of the following is NOT TRUE according to the passage?
 
Questions 14 through 16 are based on the following report.
The International Monetary Fund (IMF) said it had to raise hundreds of billions of dollars so it can give out new loans to countries in urgent need of financial support. The IMF said it was restoring options for raising extra money.
A protest by leading Internet sites has urged senior members of US congress to withdraw their support for proposed laws against online piracy. Wikipedia, the online encyclopedia, argues that the proposals damage the Internet freedom and it closed its English-language pages for 24 hours in protest.
   The British prime minister David Cameron has accused Argentina of colonialism over the Falkland islands. The two countries fought a war in 1982 over the territory in the south Atlantic, which Argentina calls the Malvinas. Argentina’s minister Florencio Randazzo describes Mr. Cameron’s remarks as totally offensive as it is their own domestic affair.
   President Obama has rejected the proposal by Canadian company to build a huge oil pipeline from Canada to Texas. He is blaming his Republican opponents in Congress, saying they set a casual deadline for the decision and didn’t allow the government enough time to check the safety of the project, known as the keystone XL pipeline.
Questions:
14. Which of the following statements is TRUE?
15. What can we learn from the incident involving UK and Argentina?
16. Why has President Obama rejected the proposal to build an oil pipeline from Canada to Texas?

M: Good location. But how is the house itself?
W: It looks quite new from outside.
M: What about the inside?
W: Well, it has a nice living room, a dining room and two large bedrooms. One for my husband and me, and the other for the kids.
M: It sounds wonderful. What about the kitchen?
W: It’s quite modern. It has a new refrigerator, and an electric stove. It also has a nice dishwasher.
M: How is the garden?
W: Oh, it’s really nice. It’s not big, but the lawn and the trees around it are beautiful.
M: Good, but how about the price?
W: Well, it’s quite expensive, 136,500 dollars.
M: But it’s worth it.
Complete the form. Write ONE WORD for each blank.
 
Blanks 21 through 24 are based on the following conversation.
W: So, how long have you lived in New York?
M: All my life. I was born here. Sounds like you’re new in town.
W: Two months. I just moved here from Michigan.
M: Wow! That’s a big change. New York must be quite a shock.
W: Well, not exactly. I lived here once before, when I went to the graduate school. So I’m used to the life in New York.
M: When did you live here?
W: Oh. Let me see, …it must have been about eight years ago. Boy, the city has changed since then.
M: I suppose so. I mean, they’ve really cleaned up Times Square. It used to be so dirty. I mean, now it’s just full of tourists.
W: Yeah. And the subways seem to run more on schedule now.
M: Basically, I think the city is safer because we have more police officers on the street.
W: Oh, that’s for sure! But one thing I can’t get used to is the noise, especially those garbage trucks! They come at five in the morning and are so loud. The noise wakes me up every time!
M: Well, I am tired of the weather. I mean, I’m so sick and tired of these long, cold winters. I’m thinking about moving next year.
W: Really?
M: Yeah. I’ve lived here all my life, and I feel like I need some kind of change. You know, a new environment. It’s time to get out of New York.
W: Hmm. Not me!I love the nightlife, the theaters and the great restaurants. I can’t wait to get out to discover all that New York is offering!
