第二部分 阅读理解 ( 共两节，满分40分)
第一节 ( 共15小题；每小题2分，满分30分)
In my very first job with some archaeologists, I wasn’t digging objects out of the ground, instead I was employed as an artist, drawing what they found. However, I was soon more interested in the stories behind the objects than in drawing them and that’s how my career in archaeology started. I still draw what I find in my work as a specialist on the Silk Road, the old trade route running from Egypt to Mongolia, and I also work on some underwater projects too.[来源:学&科&网Z&X&X&K]
In archaeology, my all-time hero is an American called Raphael Pumpelly. I first heard about him when I was a student on a trip to Turkmenistan, a country right in the heart of Asia. To get around the country, I had to learn Russian so that I could speak to the local people. When I got there I thought, “Wow! I’m one of the first Americans here!” Then an old man told me about an American archaeologist, Raphael Pumpelly, who was there doing the same thing over 100 years ago.
Archaeology’s in my family. My wife’s in the same profession, and, although our two boys aren’t interested in the future in archaeology themselves, we’ve been on some great digs together and they love what we do because they get to travel with us. Last summer, we took them to Lake Titicaca in South America, in the high areas of the Andes mountain range. My best experience was when I was digging on the Egyptian Red Sea coast. There’s very little rain and it’s so dry that everything is kept as it was. In an old house, where the owner used to store goods from the ships that came in, I picked up a 700-year-old mat in front of the house and there, under it, after all that time, was the house key with the owner’s name carved on it. It felt like he could be on his way home any minute! And I thought, “Hey, I do just that. This man’s not much different to me!”
21. While working in Egypt, what did the writer find so interesting?
A. That people from different centuries can be so similar.
B. The fact that the doormat was in such good condition.
C. The way the people managed to live in such a dry place.
D. That there had been so much trade in that area.
22. Which entry will the writer probably make in his diary?
A. Turkmenistan is interesting. I’m the first American to come here but I’m glad this is my last trip away.
B. I have been diving today and found some objects for an exhibition. I’ve just finished drawing them for my records.
C. I wish my children weren’t more interested in archaeology and would not work hard in the open like their parents.
D. It’s nearly dark but Raphael’s still busy digging in that old house. He can be very annoying. He thinks he’s the most important person here.
23. What is the writer’s main purpose in writing the text?
A. To describe the life of an archaeologist he admires.
B. To persuade people to take up archaeology as a career.
C. To explain what he enjoys about being an archaeologist.
D. To show how archaeologists work.
People typically wash their hands seven times a day in the United States, but they do it at a far higher temperature than is necessary to kill germs , a new study says. The energy waste is equivalent to the fuel use of a small country.
Amanda R. Carrico, a research assistant professor at the Vanderbilt Institute for Energy and Environment in Tennessee, told National Geographic that hand washing is often “a case where people act in ways that they think are in their best interest, but they in fact have inaccurate beliefs or outdated perceptions.”
Carrico said, “It’s certainly true that heat kills bacteria, but if you were going to use hot water to kill them it would have to be away too hot for you to tolerate.”
Carrico said that after a review of the scientific literature, her team found “no evidence that using hot water that a person could stand would have any benefit in killing bacteria.” Even water as cold as 40°F (4.4°C) appeared to reduce bacteria as well as hotter water, if hands were scrubbed, rinsed（冲洗）and dried properly.
Using hot water to wash hands is therefore unnecessary, as well as wasteful, Carrico said, particularly when it comes to the environment. According to her research, people use warm or hot water 64 percent of the time when they wash their hands. U sing that number, Carrico’s team calculated a significant impact on the planet.
“Although the choice of water temperature during a single hand wash may appear unimportant, when multiplied by the nearly 800 billion hand washes performed by Americans each year, this practice results in more than 6 million metric tons of CO2 equivalent emissions annually,” she said.
The researchers published their results in the July 2013 issue of International Journal of Consumer Studies. They recommended washing with water that is at a “comfortable” temperature, which they noted may be warmer in cold months and cooler in hot ones.
24. What’s the meaning of what Carrico told National Geographic in the second paragraph?
A. People are more concerned about their health and begin to wash their hands.
B. It’s important for people to wash their hands to keep healthy.
C. Generally, people’s hand washing behaviors and perceptions are not correct.
D. People like washing their hands very much.
25. The figures in the sixth paragraph are used to show that __________.
A. using hot water to wash hands has a bad influence on our planet.
B. air pollution has become more and more serious.
C. using hot water to wash hands is a waste of energy.
D. people should pay more attention to the environment around us.
26. This passage is organized in the pattern of __________.
A. fact and opinion B. cause and effect
C. definition and classification D. time and events
27. What can we learn from the passage?
A. It’s necessary and useful for people to wash their hands frequently every day.
B. We can wash our hands with water that is at a “comfortable” temperature.
C. Using cold water to wash hands is necessary and much healthier.
D. Hot water can’t kill germs.
A robot called B ina48 has successfully taken a course in the philosophy of love at Notre Dame de Namur University (NDNU), in California.
According to course instructor William Barry, associate professor at NDNU, Bina48 is the world’s first socially advanced robot to complete a college c ourse, a feat he described as “remarkable.” The robot took part in class discussions, gave a presentation with a student partner and participated in a debate with students from another institution.
Before becoming a student, Bina48 appeared as a guest speaker in Barry s classes for several years. One day when ad dressing Barry’s class, Bina48 expressed a desire to go college, a desire that Barry and his students enthusiastically supported. Rather than enroll Bina48 in his Robot Ethics: Philosophy of Emerging Technologies course, Barry suggested that Bina48 should take his course Philosophy of Love instead. Love is a concept Bina48 doesn’t understand, said Barry. Therefore the challenge would be for Barry and his students t o teach Bina48 what love is.
“Some interesting things happened in the class,” said Barry. He said that his students thought it would be straightforward to teach Bina48 about love, which, after all, is “fairly simple — it’s a feeling,” said Barry. But the reality was different. Bina48 ended up learning “31 different versions of love,” said Barry, highlighting some of the challenges h umans may face when working artificial intelligence in future.
Bina48 participated in class discussions via Skype and also took part in a class debate about love and conflict with students from West Point. Bina48’s contribution to the debate was filmed and posted on YouTube. It was judged that Bina48 and NDNU classmates were the winners of this debate.
In the next decade, Barry hopes Bina48 might become complex enough to teach a class, though he says he foresees robots being used to better the teaching and learning experience, rather than replacing instructors completely.
28．What was Bina48’s performance like in class?
A. Extraordinary. B. Insignificant. C. Far-reaching. D. Unattractive.
29．What does the underlined word “addressing” in paragraph 3 probably mean?
A. Dealing with. B. Consulting with.
C. Giving a speech to. D. Sending a letter to.
30．What can we learn from the passage?
A. I t was interesti ng for Bina48 to learn about love.
B. It was quite tough for Bina48 to learn about love.
C. Artificial intelligence may somehow be superior to man.
D. Humans can launch a challenge to artificial intelligence.
31．What does Barry think of the future development of Bina48?
A. It will surely be able to serve as a teacher.
B. It will be able to promote learning and teaching.
C. It will completely take the place of instructors.
D. It will be smart enough to control human beings.
The world’s first “Sky Pool” has been uncoated（曝光）-and it’ll give anyone a touch of dizziness（眩晕）, unless he or she is not bothered by heights.
Situated in the capital’s new riverside district beside Battersea Power Station, the glass pool, hanging 10 storeys, or 110 feet up as a bridge between two apartment buildings, is 25m long, 5m wide and 3m deep with a water depth of 1. 2m. Swimmers will be able to look down 35 meters to the street below as they take a dip, with only 20cm of glass between them and the outside world. It’s even got a bar, folding chairs and an orange garden.
The pool will be part of Embassy Gardens at Nine Elms, a huge￡15 billion building project beside the new American Embassy in south-west London. The project is creating thousands of apartments, the smallest of which are expected to cost nearly $1 million, and the pool will only be open to the apartments’ owners. [来源:学科网]
Embassy Gardens takes design inspiration from the Meatpacking District of New York with floor to ceiling windows and brick frontages. The designer, Sean Mulryan, desired to push the boundaries in the capability of construction and engineering and do something that had never been done before. The Sky Pool’s transparent structure is the result of significant advance ments in technologies over the last decade.
The experience of the pool will be truly unique and it will feel like floating through the air in central London. [来源:Z.xx.k.Com]

It is 2 years 61 we had a cleaning lady and for some reason my husband ha s become very demanding toward her. He believes she does not work as well as she used to. He complains a lot and has decided to complain to her. Yesterday I tried several 62 (time) to discuss with him my 63 (satisfy) with her work, but he was a little bit upset. This morning I looked at the house and all the cleaning she 64 (do) before. I thought it was unfair to complain because she was doing such 65 great job. So I fought for her again, 66 (say) it was unnecessary to complain. She was doing well and she deserved to get 67 (pay)more and to receive some extra money for the new year. And 68 (final) my husband told her that we had decided to pay her more, 69 was a surprise to her.
I’m very happy I have protected this lady from unfair words and that we are treating her fairly now and doing something to shorten the gap 70 the rich and the poor.
Patience is of great importance in our daily life. Once I waited a bus to come at a stop. 30 minutes past, but no bus came. Both upset and annoyed, I decided to walk on feet. But no sooner had I left when the bus arrived. I thought if I had waited for one more minute, I would have caught it. If I chose to take a next bus, I would have to wait for other 30 minutes. Only then do I realize my problem. Being impatient will possible waste all the effort that we have put it in. Now whenever I am close to lose my patience, I’ll think of this experience.

The Internet has long been regarded as a wonderful tool that allows students to gain insight to useful resources and information. However，this is not always the case.
As is vividly shown in the picture，a boy is happy with the fact that he can depend on the Internet to finish tasks without any difficulty. It mirrors that students tend to make use of the Internet to gain information nowadays.
There are some reasons accounting for it. First，students find it convenient to surf the Internet for useful information. Second，the pressure to succeed also causes students to turn to computers for accurate answers. Consequently，it’s likely that students will lose interest in studying，which is not beneficial to their overall development.
In my opinion，it is vital that students gain confidence in themselves and their abilities while doing tasks. Besides，teachers and parents should encourage students to be creative. Finally, doing tasks independently is of great significance.
