第一节 阅读理解（共20小题; 每小题2分，满分40分）
One morning more than thirty years ago, I entered the Track Kitchen, a restaurant where everyone from the humblest (卑微的) to the most powerful came for breakfast. I noticed an empty chair next to an elderly, unshaven man, who looked somewhat disheveled. He was wearing a worn-out hat and was alone. I asked if I might join him. He agreed quietly and I sat down to have my breakfast.
We cautiously began a conversation and spoke about a wide range of things. We never introduced ourselves. I was concerned that he might have no money and not be able to afford something to eat. So as I rose to go back to the counter and buy a second cup of coffee, I asked,
“May I get you something?”
“A coffee would be nice.”
Then I bought him a cup of coffee. We talked more, and he accepted another cup of coffee. Finally, I rose to leave, wished him well, and headed for the exit. At the door I met one of my friends. He asked,
“How did you get to know Mr. Galbreath?”
“The man you were sitting with. He is chairman of the Board of Churchill Downs.”
I could hardly believe it. I was buying, offering a free breakfast, and feeling pity for one of the world’s richest and most powerful men!
My few minutes with Mr. Galbreath changed my life. Now I try to treat everyone with respect, no matter who I think they are, and to meet another human being with kindness and sincerity.
21. What does the underlined word “disheveled” mean?
A. Unfriendly. B. Untidy. C. Gentle. D. Kind.
22. The author bought coffee for the old man because ________.
A. he thought the old man was poor B. he wanted to start a conversation
C. he intended to show his politeness D. he would like to thank the old man
23. How did the author probably feel after he talked with his friend?
A. Proud. B. Pitiful. C. Surprised. D. Regretful.
24. What message does the story intend to convey?
A. We should learn to be generous.
B. It is honorable to help those in need.
C. People in high positions are not like what we expect.
D. We should avoid judging people by their appearances.
Almost every light comedy or situation comedy makes me feel like I should be drinking wine every night with my best friend while one of us tries on clothes. Not only should we share the same dress size, but we should also have a long, rich history of togetherness and secrets. Clearly, this is not reality.
I have 598 friends. OK, but if I’m honest, 99.3 percent of those friends are those I met only once or acquaintances who live too far away to see regularly. That leaves 4 people, who I can call anytime, not feeling like I’m absolutely wasting their time. The remaining 0.2, I’ve decided, is my houseplant. I can tell it anything.
Feeling the same way? You’re absolutely not alone. Most of us find our “people” in school, but over time life changes: marriage, kids, etc. We grow out of our relationships and they grow out of us.
So when the relationships come to an end, how do you find a new one?
A woman in my apartment building, who I had seen around over the years, approached me one day and introduced herself. She bravely stated, “You seem cool. Do you want to hang out with me sometime? I’m looking for new friends.” I almost dropped my bag of groceries at her social honesty. And now we get together for coffee a few times a year, gossip (八卦) about the neighbors, and take in the mail when one of us is on vacation. But a few times a year isn’t enough for me.
So, what counts as true friendship as you get older? For me, it’s feeling comfortable enough to be myself. And if you’re like me, it’s also trust — not just keeping the secret, but trusting that my life choices aren’t their gossip elsewhere.
25. What do the numbers in Paragraph 2 show?
A. The author has some unusual friends. B. The author has very few real friends.
C. The author is fond of phoning her friends. D. The author doesn’t like most of her friends.
26. What does the underlined sentence in Paragraph 5 show?
A. The author was a little careless. B. The author was glad at the request.
C. The author was shocked by the request. D. The author was carrying something heavy.
27. What does the author think true friendship is?
A. It is really difficult to find. B. It can show one’s genuine belief.
C. It is really hard for people to understand. D. It can make people have a sense of security.
Sitting on the peaceful coast of Galapagos Islands, Ecuador, watching the sun move quietly into the sea, you shouldn’t forget that Charles Darwin (1809-1882) arrived here in 1835. He stayed on the islands for five weeks, observing various animals. This finally inspired his famous work, On the Origin of Species. You can certainly follow Darwin’s footsteps and enjoy a trip from four to seven days to the islands.
The islands are certainly a paradise (天堂) for wildlife, as there are no natural killers on the islands and the number of boats and visitors is under government control. Though you cannot walk freely as Darwin did about 200 years ago, each day is as impressive as it could be.
The most well-known animals of the Galapagos is the giant tortoise (巨型海龟), which can be seen moving slowly around the highlands of Sanra Cruz, the second largest island in the archipelago (群岛). Some of these creatures are so old that they might have been seen in their youth by Darwin himself.
Despite strict control over activities and timing, your stay on the Galapagos will be remembered as a chain of incomparable pictures: diving with sea lions that swim and play within inches of you; feeling small sharks touch your feet as you swim; and, most magically, seeing a whale and her baby surface with a great breath of air.
Travelling between the islands and observing the wildlife that so inspired Darwin, you will feel as though you are getting a special view of an untouched world. At night you will sleep on board the ship, leaving the wildlife in complete occupation of the islands, which are as undisturbed now as they have been since the beginning of time.
28. What do we know about Darwin’s visit to the islands?
A. He studied different creatures on the islands.
B. He completed his famous book on the islands.
C. He was touched by the geography of the islands.
D. He was attracted by well-known animals of the islands.
29. Which of the following plays a role in making the islands “a paradise for wildlife”?
A. Animals on the islands feed on grass. B. Local government forbids killing wildlife.
C. People cannot visit the islands as they wish. D. Tourists are not allowed to touch the animals.
30. Your stay on the islands will be most impressive mainly because of ________.
A. the beautiful sea views B. Darwin’s inspiring trip
C. a closer view of animals D. various daring activities
31. Which of the following would be the best title for the passage?
A. A Unique Attraction for Wildlife Lovers B. Galapagos as a Paradise for Adventures
C. Charles Darwin as a Symbol of Galapagos D. A Successful Example of Wildlife Protection
Starting the day on an egg could keep your blood pressure under control, research suggests. Scientists have shown that eggs produce proteins with a function similar to that of powerful blood pressure-lowering drugs.
The research, from the University of Alberta in Canada, showed that when eggs come in contact with stomach enzymes (酶) they produce a protein that acts in the same way as Ace inhibitors, but more work is needed to show the effects outside a lab and in the human body.
Earlier this month, British researchers declared that, contrary to popular beliefs, it is healthy to go to work on an egg. They concluded that the type of cholesterol (胆固醇) found in eggs has little effect on increasing heart disease risks.
Researcher Professor Bruce Griffin, from the University of Surrey, said, “The wrong beliefs linking egg eating to high blood cholesterol and heart disease must be corrected. The amount of fat in our diet has an effect on blood cholesterol that is several times greater than the relatively small amounts of cholesterol found in eggs. The UK public do not need to be limiting the number of eggs they eat. They can be encouraged to include them in a healthy diet as they are one of nature’s most nutritious foods.”
The British Heart Foundation dropped its three-egg-a-week limit in 2005. However, almost half of Britons believe the limit still applies.
32. From the text we know that Ace inhibitors are ________.
A. a kind of protein B. a kind of food C. a kind of medicine D. a kind of illness
33. According to what Professor Bruce said, eggs ________.
A. are the most nutritious food B. can be included in a healthy diet
C. have no effect on blood cholesterol D. are forbidden to be eaten in the UK
34. We can infer from the text that ________.
A. stomach enzymes mixed with eggs can cure heart diseases
B. drugs to lower blood pressure will be replaced by eating eggs
C. most Britons agree the three-egg-a-week limit should be dropped
D. about 50% of Britons think eating an egg a day is bad for their health
35. The text is meant to ________.
A. introduce a medicine made from eggs B. introduce scientific findings about eggs
C. tell people how to lower their blood pressure D. advise people to eat as many eggs as possible
When you’re in high school, it can be difficult to find a job. You may not have much, or any, formal work experience and there aren’t many jobs available for teenagers. However, if you’re looking for a job, there are things you can do to help get your application noticed and help yourself get hired. 36
Don’t be shy.
Tell everyone you know you are looking for a job. Many jobs aren’t advertised and you may be able to get a good job lead from a friend or family member.
One good way to get experience is to start by working for friends and neighbors. Babysitting, garden work, doing cleaning, and pet sitting all can be included on your resume (简历).
Keep an open mind.
38 This is a tough market and you may not be able to find a job doing what you want to do. The more flexibility you have, the more opportunities you’ll be able to apply for. Plus, even if the job isn’t your first choice, it may turn out to be better than you expected.
Check the rules.
There are only certain jobs you can do and hours you can work. 39 The minimum age you can work at paid non-agricultural employment is 14.
Write a resume.
A resume may not be required by employers. 40 Even though you may not have much information to include, a resume shows that you’re serious about your job search.
A. Start close to home.
B. Be always optimistic.
C. You can count on the following chance.
D. Don’t limit yourself to certain types of jobs.
E. But it can help you stand out from the competition.
F. These job search tips will help you get your job search started.
G. Check the Child Labor Law regulations to see how they apply to you.

My husband kissed me goodbye, stroke (轻抚) the baby’s cheek and then rushed out of the door, into his busy day. With the cold of the morning fading, I fed my baby and it fell fast asleep. Usually I would place it in bed and quickly have the house somewhat in 41 .
However, this morning, I stayed seated, just 42 , with the baby in my arms. The thoughts ran into 43 of the mornings with my husband, a father rushing out of the door to meet the obligations of life. It was only a small jump to thoughts of my own 44 .
My mother passed away when I was ten, and as I looked 45 , I could see how much of a family man my dad was. He went to work every morning and 46 to his family every evening. He 47 food, clothing, warmth, and protection. He was a faithful father.
Setting the baby down, I dialed the 48 number. I had just realized the 49 of the ordinary － the daily life going on around us that we often took for granted, and that it needed to be 50 .
“Hi, Dad.” I said, 51 back tears.
“Hey, Bud. How are you?” 52 was in his voice.
“Fine, I’m just calling to say … thank you.” I got it out before my throat 53 too much for me to speak.
“For getting up and going to work every morning of my life. Now that I have my own 54 and I see my husband doing the same, I just wanted to thank you for being 55 .”
There was 56 for a moment as my dad composed himself, and with a small 57 in his voice he said, “You’re welcome, Bud.”
I don’t remember much of the rest of the call, 58 that moment of revelation (显露) about my father, I will never forget. There are those who are known for their heroic 59 , and also those who are known for their fortunes and fame, but it is the 60 everyday fathers who are the true heroes. I’m thankful that my father was one of them.
