Ⅲ. 阅读理解(2010湖北省部分重点中学高三第二次联考)
      Bringing up children is hard work, and you are often to blame for any bad behavior of your children. If so, Judith Rich Hams has good news for you. Parents, she argues, have no important long-term effects on the development of the personality of their children. Far more important are their playground friends and neighborhood companions. Ms Harris takes to bits the assumption which has dominated (支配) developmental psychology for almost half a century.
      Ms Harris attack on the developmentalists “nurture” argument looks likely to reinforce (加强) doubts that the profession was already having. If parents matter, why is it that two adopted children, reared in the same home, are no more similar in personality than two adopted children reared in separate homes? Or that a pair of identical twins, reared in the same home, are no more alike than a pair of identical twins reared in different homes?
Difficult as it is to track the precise effects of parental upbringing, it may be harder to measure the exact influence of the peer (同龄人) group in childhood and adolescence. Ms Harris points to how children from immigrant homes soon learn not to speak at school in the way their parents speak. But acquiring a language is surely a skill, rather than a characteristic of the sort developmental psychologists hunt for. Certainly it is different from growing up tensely or relaxedly, or from learning to be honest or hard-working or generous. Easy though it may be to prove that parents have little impact on those qualities, it will be hard to prove that peers have vastly more.
Moreover, mum and dad surely cannot be ditched completely. Young adults may, as Ms Harris argues, be keen to appear like their contemporaries. But even in those early years, parents have the power to open doors: they may initially choose the peers with whom their young associate, and pick that influential neighborhood. Moreover, most people suspect that they come to resemble their parents more in middle age, and peoples child-rearing habits may be formed partly by what their parents did. So the balance of influences is probably complicated, as most parents already suspected without being able to demonstrate it scientifically. Even if it turns out that the genes they pass on and the friends their children play with matter as much as affection, discipline and good example,parents are not completely off the hook.
1.According to Ms Harris, ________.
A.parents are to blame for any bad behavior of their children
B.childrens personality is shaped by their friends and neighbors
C.nature rather than upbringing has a significant effect on childrens personality development
D.parents will greatly affect the childrens life in the long run
【答案与解析】 B 推断题。第1段说“孩子性格更多是受朋友和邻居的影响”。
2.The word “ditched”(Line 1, Para.4)could best be replaced by ________.
A.proved       B.emphasized
C.compared  D.ignored
【答案与解析】 D 词义推测题。第4段第1句意为,此外,父母的影响肯定不容忽视。
3.The developmental psychologists think ________.
A.children are more influenced by their peers
B.identical twins raised in the same home are different in personality
C.twins raised in two separate families are different in personality
D.upbringing has a less significant effect on childrens personality development
【答案与解析】 C 推断题。根据第2段可知,双胞胎在不同家庭成长,也就会有不同的性格。
4.According to Paragraph 3, we know that ________.
 A.it is easier for children to gain a language at home
B.it is harder to follow the effects of parental upbringing
C.immigrant children avoid speaking the same way as their parents at school
D.it is proved that peers have a greater effect on childrens qualities
【答案与解析】 C 细节题。文章第3段说移民家庭里的孩子在学校不会像父母一样说话。
5.What does the author mean by saying “parents are not completely off the hook” at the end of the passage?
A.Parents should control the situation.
B.Parents should give their way to children.
C.Parents should spend more time on children.
D.Parents should take on their responsibility
【答案与解析】 D 推断题。从全文来看,虽然孩子的个性受父母的影响少,但是这并不意味着父母不应该承担任何责任。
Dear Editor,
    Im writing to tell you about a food poisoning accident. Several days ago, my neighbor ate a bag of food buying from the market. After the meal, they had stomachaches and their faces turn pale. Fortunately, one of their friends found the accident and immediately called on an ambulance, which carried them quickly to a hospital. After several hours treatment they finally escaped from death.
     As some illegal businessmen only interested in making profits to become rich quickly,  we seldom care about the necessary safety measures or care which happens to consumers. They must be charged with law. Meanwhile, I do hope whole society can realize the important of food safety and begin taking action together to make sure food is safe.
Wang Ming

假如你是某电视台“科技博览”节目的编辑,  每周你们栏目要向观众介绍一项科技发明。这一期要向观众简要介绍手机。请你为栏目主持人准备一篇英文稿。
注意:1.短文的开头已为你写好,  不计入总词数;
This is Science and Technology View of our TV station. We are now on the air with a 45-minute regular program to bring you a big invention—cell phones.
One possible version:
        This is Science and Technology View of our TV station. We are now on the air with a 45-minute regular program to bring you a big invention—cell phones.
         Nowadays you can find a cell phone used here and there. Many people consider it one of the greatest inventions of the last century. Why? It has changed our way of life and speed the pace of our work. Also, it is a way to have fun and be cool.
        Modern cell phones are more than just phones—they are being used as cameras and radios, and to send e-mails or surf the Internet. New functions are being added to the phones.Its believed that cell phones in the future will still play an important part in peoples life. They will be much more smarter, and prices will be more competitive.

One possible version:
       With the development of economy, our environment is being polluted more and more heavily. Natural disasters continuously broke out, threatening human life seriously. To_make_the_earth_a_better_place_for_us_to_live_on,_in my opinion, we should do as follows:
       First of all, the public must receive the education about protecting environment. They should also save electricity and water in daily life. Besides, we should use environment-friendly shopping bags instead_of plastic bags, which will lead to the “white pollution”. More importantly, new laws must be passed to effectively control industrial pollution, which is the main cause of environmental pollution.
       Only in this way can we have a more beautiful earth.
One possible version:
        Online shopping is common in our daily life now. There are two kinds of opinions about it.
        Some people hold the idea that online shopping has a lot of advantages. The most important one is its convenience. Online shopping saves time and energy for people, especially for the busy ones, the aged and the disabled who cant go to shops in person.Besides, on the Internet there is enough information of all kinds of goods, which_enables_people_to buy things from a distant place.
       However, other people object to online shopping. They think the real goods may be different from what the consumers have seen on the Internet, thus the quality of goods bought online may not be ensured. Whats worse, once_cheated_online, one may find_it_difficult_to make a complaint.
       In my opinion, it is better for all to be careful when shopping online.
