Recently， a 1935 letter in which Ernest Hemingway detailed his catch of a 500lb blue marlin（青枪鱼）， an adventure that is believed to have partly inspired his novel The Old Man and the Sea， has been sold for﹩28，000 （£22，000）．
The handwritten letter was sent by Hemingway on 8 May to the fishing editor of the Miami Herald， laying out in great detail how the author and his friend Henry Strater battled to keep sharks away from the marlin after catching it off the Bahamian island of Bimini．
Nate D Sanders， the auction（拍卖） company which sold the letter， said it documented for the first time in Hemingway's own words not only the size of the marlin， but also the attack by sharks， reflecting the plot of the novel．
The company added that Hemingway's account of the marlin catch differed from other anecdotes of it， one of which described Hemingway using a machine gun on the sharks， which is said to have attracted more sharks rather than frightened them away．
The Old Man and the Sea was also inspired by an anecdote told by Hemingway's Cuban friend Carlos Gutierrez． In 1936， Hemingway wrote in a magazine that Carlos had told him about an old fisherman who caught a great marlin alone．
Three years later， Hemingway told his editor Max Perkins that he was planning a short story about the old commercial fisherman who fought the swordfish all alone in his sailing boat． Instead， he ended up writing For Whom the Bell Tolls， not returning to the story about the old fisherman until January 1951． It won him the Pulitzer in 1953， and was specifically cited when he was awarded the Nobel Prize in 1954．
8. What does the underlined phrase "laying out" in the second paragraph mean？
9. What did the auction company stress when selling the 1935letter？
A. The style of the writer．
B. The history of the letter．
C. The contents of the letter．
D. The popularity of the writer．
10. What inspired Hemingway to write The Old Man and The Sea besides his own adventure？
A. Henry Strater's account．
B. Carlos Gutierrez's story．
C. Max Perkins' life experience．
D. Nate D Sanders' description．
11. Which is the correct order of time for the following facts in the passage？
1Hemingway wrote a letter to describe his adventure．
2Hemingway caught a big blue marlin．
3The letter was sold at auction．
4The Old Man and The Sea won the Nobel Prize．
【答案】8. D 9. C 10. B 11. B
词义猜测题。根据文章第二段第一句The handwritten letter was sent by Hemingway on 8 May to the fishing editor of the Miami Herald，laying out in great detail how the author and his friend Henry Strater battled to keep sharks away from the marlin after catching it off the Bahamian island of Bimini．可知这封手写信是海明威5月8日寄给《迈阿密先驱报》的渔业编辑的，详细阐述了作者和他的朋友亨利•斯特拉特在巴哈马群岛比米尼岛捕获马林鱼后，如何努力使鲨鱼远离它。结合选项，所以选择D。
细节理解题。根据文章第三段第一句Nate D Sanders， the auction（拍卖） company which sold the letter， said it documented for the first time in Hemingway's own words not only the size of the marlin， but also the attack by sharks， reflecting the plot of the novel．可知拍卖公司强调说，这封被拍卖的信是海明威第一次用自己的话记录一些东西，记录的内容不仅包括鱼的大小，还有鲨鱼对他们的袭击。结合选项，所以选择C。
细节题。根据文章第五段第一句The Old Man and the Sea was also inspired by an anecdote told by Hemingway's Cuban friend Carlos Gutierrez．可知海明威的古巴朋友Carlos Gutierrez给他讲述了的一则轶事也启发了海明威创造老人和海这部小说。结合选项，所以选择B。
细节理解题。根据文章第一段Recently， a 1935 letter in which Ernest Hemingway detailed his catch of a 500lb blue marlin…可知，海明威捕获了一只大的青枪鱼，然后他将这个冒险经历写在了信里。后来这个经历促成了《老人与海》这篇小说的创作。根据文章最后一句It won him the Pulitzer in 1953，and was specifically cited when he was awarded the Nobel Prize in 1954.可知1954年的时候，《老人与海》这部小说获得诺贝尔奖．近期写着冒险经历的信件才被拍卖公司拍卖了，故文章中的故事发展顺序应该是②①④③，结合选项，所以选择B。
In 2019，a big revolutionary technology shift will finally occur，which is called 5g． It is a once-in a-decade upgrade（升级）to our wireless systems that will start reaching mobile phone users in a matter of months. This new times will leap ahead of current wireless known as 4g by offering mobile internet speeds that will let people download an entire 120-minute movie within a second
But this is not only about faster smart phones，but also will affect many other kinds of devices， including industrial robots，security cameras，drones（无人机），automatic cars，video games，sports，shopping and traffic data．With 5g technology，a clearer and truer 3D images will be formed and it can be off-loaded to other machines wirelessly，freeing users to move and making it easier to develop goggles（目镜）the size of eyeglasses. People can point a smart phone camera to a football game and see both live video on the display and player statistics or other data. Moreover 5g powerful effects extend to remote medical surgery and other fields that increasingly rely on high-speed connections．
Officials in the United States and China regard 5g networks as a heated competitive edge．It can help spread the use of artificial intelligence and other cutting-edge technologies．Meanwhile，to get the benefits of 5g，users will have to buy new phones，while carriers will need to install new communication services， which will create a huge future market. In order to occupy it first, the famous world wireless service providers such as AT&T, Verizon, Samsung, Huawei have already declared that they will enter 5g business and showed their 5g new smart phones．
However, in the United States, Verizon and AT&T will offer their 5g service with first use of high frequencies known as millimeter waves that can pump data at high speeds, but their signals don't travel as far. Instead Sprint and T-Mobile plan to start with lower frequencies, whose result may be somewhat slower initial speed，but wider range，although they all claim that they have mastered 5g technology．Thus they only first target the areas with large population. So 5g's full benefit to all are not expected until the main US key carriers upgrade their key switching equipment, which may happen in late 2019 or early 2020.
12. Which of the following is least likely to be affected directly by 5g technology？ ______
A. Eating habits． B. Traffic management．
C. Artificial intelligence． D. Remote medical operations．
13. What does the underlined world "it" in the second paragraph refer to？ ______
A. to use 5g technology freely
B. to get a clear 3D images
C. to free users move wirelessly
D. to develop goggles the size of eyeglasses
14. Why did the world-famous wireless providers hurry to declare they would enter 5g business？ ______
A. To serve the people all over the world．
B. To meet the need of the world market．
C. To start the heated hi-tech competition．
D. To occupy this large hi-tech market first．
15. What does the last paragraph mainly tell us about the US 5g technology？ ______
A. It is perfect enough to be put into use in the whole US at present．
B It cannot benefit all Americans before the key equipment is upgraded．
C. It is too backward to be applied in any part of the US now．
D. It will never be widely used all over the US in the future．
【答案】12. A 13. D 14. D 15. B
细节理解题。根据文章第二段第1句：But this is not only about faster smart phones，but also will affect many other kinds of devices， including industrial robots，security cameras，drones（无人机），automatic cars，video games，sports，shopping and traffic data．（但这并不是只有更快的智能手机,还将影响许多其他类型的设备,包括工业机器人、安全摄像头,无人机,自动汽车,游戏,运动,购物和交通数据。）可知，B项Traffic management（交通管理）；C项Artificial intelligence（人工智能）； D项 Remote medical operations（远程医疗手术）均可受益于5g，但A项Eating habits（饮食习惯）并未包含在内，故选A项。
词义猜测题。根据语法结构分析可知，make it+adj.+to do 不定式结构中it 为形式宾语，真正宾语为to do 不定式，因此在划线it所在短语making it easier to develop goggles（目镜）the size of eyeglasses中，it 指代to develop goggles（目镜）the size of eyeglasses。故选D项。
细节理解题。根据第三段末尾句：In order to occupy it first, the famous world wireless service providers such as AT&T, Verizon, Samsung, Huawei have already declared that they will enter 5g business and showed their 5g new smart phones．（为了抢占先机，AT&T、Verizon、三星、华为等世界著名的无线服务提供商已经宣布将进入5g业务，并展示了他们的5g新智能手机。）可知，世界著名无线提供服务商急于宣布进入5g是为了占有市场。故选D项。
细节理解题。根据文章第四段末尾句：So 5g's full benefit to all are not expected until the main US key carriers upgrade their key switching equipment, which may happen in late 2019 or early 2020.（因此，在美国主要运营商升级他们的关键转换设备之前，5g不会给所有人带来全面的好处。升级可能会在2019年底或2020年初进行。）可知，B项It cannot benefit all Americans before the key equipment is upgraded．（在关键设备升级之前，不可能使所有美国人受益。）表述正确。故选B项。
2. What does the underlined world "it" in the second paragraph refer to？ ______
A. to use 5g technology freely
B. to get a clear 3D images
C. to free users move wirelessly
D. to develop goggles the size of eyeglasses
首先返回原文定位该指代词，并且90％向上、10％向下搜索其指代的词、词组或句子。然后在四个选项中找出与所找到的词、词组或句子意思接近的一个作为答案。在本题中，我们可以看到原文making it easier to develop goggles the size of eyeglasses中it是形式宾语，真正的宾语为之后的动词不定式 to develop goggles the size of eyeglasses。因此答案为D项。
Your children are watching you. _____16_____ According to the Health Program, developing healthy habits is an important part for your children. And when it comes to developing healthy habits, parents influence their children more than anyone else.
____17____ What happens during those early years can influence children for the rest of their lives. This includes some eating and exercise habits. Children are very careful, even at a young age.

As parents, you should do the following: _____18_____ If you do that, your children are more likely to be enthusiastic about developing theirs.

______20______ Computers , televisions and other forms of technology are a major part of life in the 21st century.

B Take part in physical activities and exercise regularly.
C. Be enthusiastic about developing healthy habits of your own.
D. Your actions are speaking to them louder than your words will.
E. Children prefer to imitate their parents rather than listen to them.
F. This can be helpful to teach your children to form good eating habits.
G. It’s easy for the children to form their healthy habits when they are young.
【答案】16. D 17. G
18. C 19. F
根据空前一句Your children are watching you.你的孩子们一直在看着你的一言一行。可知父母是孩子的榜样，一言一行都会给孩子带来影响，所以D项“你所做出的行动会比你对他们所说的话更加有效”符合语境，故此处选D。
根据空后一句What happens during those early years can influence children for the rest of their lives.在早些年所发生的事情能够影响孩子们以后一辈子的生活。此处强调early years，也就是孩子还小的时候，G项中有关键句when they are young“当他们还小的时候”，完全匹配，此外，语境上“小时候形成的习惯对他们以后的生活会有很大的影响”，前后逻辑关系很紧密地联系起来了，故选G。
根据空后一句If you do that, your children are more likely to be enthusiastic about developing theirs.“如果你那样做的话，孩子们就更加有可能积极地培养他们的习惯”，可以找到关键词enthusiastic，再根据语境可知C“积极地培养自己的健康的习惯”符合前后句的逻辑关系，只有你培养了，孩子才会培养，故选C。
根据本段第一句taking care of your own physical health by eating fruits and vegetables.可知养成健康的习惯通过吃蔬菜和水果，那么本段主要讲的就是养成良好的饮食习惯，故选F。
根据后一句Computers, televisions and other forms of technology 指的是电脑、电视、以及其它形式的技术，可找到选项中A有关键词technology，再结合本段的描述可知，是让家长合理地使用，故A项意思完全匹配，选A。

【答案】61. were thinking
63. using 64. but/yet
66. called 67. were written/are written
68. which 69. fool
考查过去进行时。句意：当我们读一首诗的时候。我们常常想象诗人正在想什么，以及他们当时正在做什么。分析句子可知，本句为what引导的宾语从句，主语为the poets为主语，谓语为think。根据句意，本句为过去进行时。故填 were thinking。
考查动名词。句意：通过使用计算程序，计算机现 可以创造各种文本，包括研究论文、书籍、新闻、故事甚至诗歌。by doing sth“通过做某事”。所以用using。故填using .
考查名词/形容词。句意：电脑生成的诗歌在语法和风格上都可能是正确的，但有些人说它们仍然缺乏创造性和真正的意义。lack为及物动词后可直接接名词creativity/creativeness 作宾语，也可接creative meaning作宾语。故填creativity/creative/creativeness.
考查过去分词。句意：澳大利亚研究员Oscar Schwartz创建了一个名为“bot or not”的网站。分析句子可知，website与call在逻辑上是被动关系，所以用过去分词called。 故填called.
考查一般现在时的被动语态/一般过去时的被动语态。句意：在他的网站上，你可以阅读诗歌并猜测它们是由人写的还是由计算机写的。分析句子可知，本句为whether引导的宾语从句，主语为they，谓语为write，且主谓为被动，时态为一般现在时/一般过去时。故填were written/are written .
考查动词。句意：Schwartz最近在悉尼发表了一次演讲，他在演讲中说，该网站的一些诗歌能够骗过65%的人类读者。be able to do sth“能够做某事”为固定用法。所以to后接foolish的动词fool。故填fool.
第三部分 写作（共两节 满分35分）
I’m glad to know about that you are enthusiastic about Chinese classics these days. In order to better your understand of Chinese literature, I think, Journey to the West, one of the four great classical novel, will make the best choice.
Journey to the West, writing by Wu Cheng’en in 16th century, tells a story about Priest Tang and his three followers. We travel westward to India. After overcoming difficulties, they eventual get true Buddhism.
You are sure to enjoy read the novel but you’re welcome to share with me your opinions.
I wished you could pay a visit to China when it is convenient for you.
2.考查名词。句意：为了更好地了解中国文学，我认为四大名著之一的《西游记》是最好的选择。分析可知，your 为形容词性物主代词，之后接名词，understand 为动词，应用其名词形式understanding，意为“理解”，故将understand改为understanding。
3.考查可数名词复数。句意：为了更好地了解中国文学，我认为四大名著之一的《西游记》是最好的选择。分析可知短语结构为one of +名词复数结构。故将novel改为novels。
4.考查非谓语动词。句意：《西游记》是16世纪吴承恩所著，讲述了唐僧和他的三个徒弟的故事。分析句子可知，动词词组“write by Wu Cheng’en in the 16th century”作非谓语，与之前的Journey to the West之间为被动关系，应用过去分词形式。故将writing改为written。
6.考查人称代词。句意：他们向西旅行到印度。“…travel westward to India.”主语为西游记中的唐僧师徒，应用第三人称复数作主语。故将We改为They。
8.考查非谓语和固定结构。句意：你一定会喜欢读这本小说，欢迎你和我分享你的观点。enjoy +V-ing， 意为“喜欢做某事”，故将read改为reading。
【点睛】know, know about, know of
这三者都有“知道,了解”的意思。它们的区别是:know 表示直接地知道,熟知；而know of 是间接得知(听人讲过,从书报上看过等); know about指知道关于某事的情况。例如:
I know of him, but I don't know him personally.我听说过他,但不认识他。
It is better to know one thing than to know about ten thousand things.熟知一事要比略知万事要好。
I’m glad to know about that you are enthusiastic about Chinese classics these days.
