A few years ago I was days away from the world trip I had been planning for 6 months. I decided to go out with two of my friends to have a   31   drink. The first half of the evening was filled with them   32   me about safety in foreign countries and telling me to be  33  in all the dangerous places I was visiting. As the night progressed we all got very drunk and rude                  34  it was the last time we would see each other for some time. Come closing time at about 1 am, we walked   35   out of the pub and began to make our way home.          
As we were making our way through the risky neighborhood, five random robbers jumped out of a lane and for no apparent reason began to   36   me and my friends. Luckily a large group of slightly nicer individuals appeared on the scene and came to our aid,   37   the robbers away. Apart from a few cuts and stolen mobile phones, no one was too badly hurt and within a few minutes we were   38   about the whole suffering. However, what happened next wasn’t so funny (for me at least).
   As we   39   our walk home a police car pulled up and a group of officers   40 and surrounded us. We began to explain that we were all right and there was no need to give any statement, but we were all told to   41   up. Two particularly large officers then   42   me and threw me in the back of the car, before ordering my friends home. I was still a little drunk and before I could   43  what was happening I was in a police station being told to empty my pockets. Following some brief questions and being informed that I was   44   for attack, I was thrown in a cell and told I would be   45   tomorrow.
I spent the night worrying that in my 46   confusion I had hit and hurt someone, however these worries were put to rest in the morning when a kind elderly officer entered my cell with a blanket and a cup of tea. A few minutes later I was being handed back my   47   and having antiseptic cream(消毒膏) put on my black eye. It turned out that one of the gang who jumped me and my friends resembled me and was wearing 48 clothes, leading the police to   49   me for him when looking at CCTV footage. After a few awkward   50   I was told that they needed the cell space so I had to leave. They didn’t even offer me the bus fare home. The funniest part? I still have the arrest document that says:
Arrested: James Wheaton
On suspicion of: An attack on James Wheaton

第三部分: 阅读理解(共20小题;每小题2分, 满分40分)
阅读下列短文,从每篇短文后所给各题的四个选项(A、B、C和D)中,选出最佳选项,并在答题卡上将该项涂黑。
A
There was a time in my life when beauty meant something special to me. I guess that would have been when I was about six or seven years old, just several weeks or maybe a month before the orphanage(孤儿院) turned me into an old man.
     I would get up every morning at the orphanage, make my bed just like the little soldier that I had become and then I would get into one of the two straight lines and march to breakfast with the other twenty or thirty boys who also lived in my dormitory.
     After breakfast one Saturday morning I returned to the dormitory and saw the house parent chasing the beautiful monarch butterflies who lived by the hundreds in the bushes scattered around the orphanage.
     I carefully watched as he caught these beautiful creatures, one after another, and then took them from the net and then stuck straight pins through their head and wings, pinning them onto a heavy cardboard sheet.
     How cruel it was to kill something of such beauty. I had walked many times out into the bushes, all by myself, just so the butterflies could land on my head, face and hands so I could look at them up close.
     When the telephone rang the house parent laid the large cardboard paper down on the back cement(水泥)step and went inside to answer the phone. I walked up to the cardboard and looked at the one butterfly who he had just pinned to the large paper. It was still moving about so I reached down and touched it on the wing causing one of the pins to fall out. It started flying around and around trying to get away but it was still pinned by the one wing with the other straight pin. Finally its wing broke off and the butterfly fell to the ground and just trembled.
     I picked up the torn wing and the butterfly and I spat on its wing and tried to get it to stick back on so it could fly away and be free before the house parent came back. But it would not stay on him.
 
51. The author set the living butterfly free because_______.
 A. he liked it very much
  B. he had sympathy for the beautiful butterfly
   C. he couldn’t bear a butterfly dying in his favorite bushes
   D. its wing broke off
52. According to the passage, the author’s life in the orphanage was_____.
  A. dull and full of strict rules
  B. simple and easy
  C. happy and full of hope
 D. hard and busy
53. What is the author’s attitude towards the house parent’s pinning some butterflies on the cardboard?
   A. tolerant        B. unconcerned      C. disgusted       D. discouraged
54. We know from the passage that_________.
  A. the author lived alone in the dormitory
  B. there were one hundred butterflies living in the bushes
  C. the cardboard paper was left on the step so as to be watched
  D. the author failed to stick the worn wing onto the butterfly with his spit
 
B
I was born in Brooklyn. My father was a small-business man and we never had much money. He supported the family, moved us to Merrick on Long Island, when I was 11. He just recently died at age 96. He was still driving and playing golf right to the end. He was the only guy I knew who at age 90 could shoot under his age. I guess that taught me something about perseverance.
I went to the University of Michigan as an engineering student in 1960. I was standing outside the student union building when Senator John F. Kennedy made a campaign speech that essentially announced his plan for the Peace Corps. He talked about how students could provide service for the country. It was an important moment for me.
After I graduated, I worked as a computer programmer for I.B.M. for two years. By then, the Vietnam War was in full swing and the draft(征兵) had accelerated. I didn’t agree with the war and was interested in finding alternatives. I.B.M. applied for a delay for me twice but the application failed.
I went to work at M.I.T.’s Instrumentation Labs on a project designed to create a rescue vehicle for lost submarines(潜水艇). I thought this job would keep me out of the draft, but M.I.T. hadn’t put in the proper paperwork and I got called in for my physical. The day before my physical, I broke my ankle playing tennis and, of course, my draft board didn’t believe a word of it. I had to provide X-rays. I had tears in my eyes from the pain, but a smile on my face.
I started John Snow Inc. in 1978 (Dr. Snow is considered the father of modern epidemiology because he traced the source of a cholera epidemic in the 1850s). We had a very clear vision of what we would be. It would not be about making the most money but having the most impact.
My goal was to attract talented people who had that passion to focus on primary care, women’s health, child health, and to do great work.
I also run a nonprofit called World Education, which focuses on literacy. What motivates me is going to the field, either in the United States or overseas, and seeing the people whose lives we affect.
I didn’t grow up rich but had the advantage of growing up in the United States and getting a good education. I couldn’t have started J.S.I. in many other places. And I believe there is a duty to try and assist people who are struggling against tough situations.
 
55. What kept the author trying to achieve his goal?
  A. His father’s good health when he lived to be over 90.
  B. His poor family.
  C. His father’s keeping living an active life to the end.
  D. Kennedy’s speech about his plan for the Peace Corps.
56. The author wasn’t enlisted into the army because______.
  A. he didn’t pass the physical examination
  B. he worked at M.I.T.’s Instrumentation Labs
  C. he objected to the Vietnam War
  D. he couldn’t play tennis well
57. Which of the following best describes the author of the passage?
  A. He is a businessman who has made a lot of money.
  B. He is a caring man with a strong sense of social responsibility.
C. He is successful in starting his companies overseas.
  D. He is a talented engineer who has trained many college students.
58. According to the passage, we know that_________.
  A. the author’ father taught him to play golf
  B. the author was disappointed to have failed physical examination
  C. John Snow Inc. was started by the father of modern epidemiology
  D. the author feels lucky to have grown up in the United States
 
C
Kirk Watson, then Austin’s mayor, remembers it this way:
“I was at the gym working out and going back and forth between different machines, doing different things. I was on a treadmill(踏车), my head down and a guy on another treadmill cried out, ‘Mayor, is that the World Trade Center?’ ”
Moments later, Watson was in another part of the gym, away from televisions. “Another guy said another one hit.” he recalled.
Watson, now a state senator, recalls every detail, every emotion of Sept. 11, 2001.
“I will never forget the feeling of watching the towers fall,” he said, recalling going into mayor mode when it became clear our nation was under attack.
You, too, remember the details, the emotions of 9/11. Five weeks from today, on the 10th anniversary of that awful day, we will provide a forum for Central Texans to share their memories. At times, the memories are so vivid, it seems impossible it was so long ago. And there are times the memories are so horrific that it can be hard to comprehend that such a thing actually happened.
For many of us, the 9/11 attacks on our homeland are the equivalent(等同) of what the attack on Pearl Harbor was for Americans on Dec. 7, 1941. The events were comparable, but the outcome was different. Does it seem to you America was in a better place 10 years after Pearl Harbor than we are 10 years after 9/11? We remain at war on two fronts. Our nation’s economy is shrinking. Too many Americans are unemployed. We face challenges so deep that some Americans — inheritors of a national spirit long marked by eternal optimism about a boundless future — are thinking about whether our best days are behind us.
“Sept. 11, 2001 was our day that will live in evil,” Watson said. “We need to make sure our children and grandchildren will say we reacted to our day that lived in evil at least as well as that generation that came before us reacted to Pearl Harbor.”
Have we done that? We’d like to share your thoughts in a project planned for these pages on Sunday, Sept. 11. Are your memories consumed by the horror of the sights of that day? And, like Watson, do the emotions of the day still burn within you?
 
59. When America was under attack on Sept 11, 2001, Kirk Watson was________.
  A. in the office having a talk with his staff
  B. receiving a phone call from his colleague
  C. in the stadium watching TV
  D. at the gym taking exercise
60. It can be learnt from the passage that ten years after Sept 11, 2001, ________ .
  A. America is in a better place than they were 10 years after Pearl Harbor
  B. America’s economy is picking up
  C. Americans are worried about their future
  D. many Americans are living a happy life
61. The author’s purpose in writing the passage is to ________ .
  A. hope the readers will talk about how they feel about the 9/11 attacks
  B. expect the victims of the 9/11 attacks will be tolerant
  C. call on all Americans to unite
  D. encourage American young people to fight against terrorists
62. What can be the best title for the passage?
  A. Great Pain Disappears Slowly
  B. Ten Years Later, Memory Still Burns
  C. Ten Years Ago, the 9/11 Attacks Occurred Unexpectedly[来源:学。科。网ZXXK]
  D. The 9/11 Attacks, Forgettable or Forgivable

Many of the 85 million people in Irene’s path -- from the Carolinas to Maine -- had not experienced hurricanes, or had only been through storms that were weaker, smaller and less damaging. For those unfamiliar with severe hurricanes, Irene was either abstract or not particularly frightening, something to get excited about more than to fear. 
Given that the way we perceive(感觉) and respond to risk is affective -- not merely objectively analytical, but the sum of the facts and how scary those facts feel -- it was likely that many people might be ignorant of the storm’s threat.
So it was heartening to see how many did in fact take the warnings to heart and prepared. The long lines at grocery stores, the high demand for batteries and bottled water, and even the patience and understanding about local government orders to evacuate(撤离) or shut down mass transit systems, show that people took the potential danger seriously.
There are two possible lessons from this storm. As much as our affective risk perception system can sometimes produce a dangerous “perception gap” between our fears and the facts -- when we sometimes fear more than we need to, or less than we should -- it’s also reasonably good at recognizing risk when it’s staring us in the face. Though most of us didn’t lose power, we know that 7 million people did. Though most of us did not suffer property damage, we know that millions did. Most of us did not lose loved ones, but we know that at least 21 families did. We know hurricanes can be dangerous, even if for many of us this one wasn’t.
The other lesson is that rare risks do hide and can spring up with little or no warning, and few of us are prepared for those. Remember the East Coast earthquake last week? 
It might have been annoying to wait in line for hours for those extra D batteries or food supplies, but it was careful to do so, and it’s a good idea to keep them on hand. Just because a risk might not be staring us in the face or feel all that scary, it doesn’t mean that it doesn’t make sense to be ready. Just in case.
 
63. From the passage, we can know that Irene________.
  A. is the way people respond to risk
  B. is the order to evacuate or shut down mass transit systems
  C. was the name of a hurricane
  D. was the author of the passage
64. The underlined sentence “it’s staring us in the face” in the fourth paragraph probably means_______.
  A. we are faced with risk that is unavoidable
  B. we’ll have to take a risk
  C. we are likely to experience risk
  D. we are at risk of suffering property losses
65. According to the passage, one of the lessons learnt from this storm is ______.
  A. people fear the storm more than they need to
  B. a dangerous storm will become less damaging if forecast accurately 
C. people are always prepared for risks that happen without warning
D. It’s reasonable to be aware of risk facing us 
66. It can be inferred from the last paragraph that______.
  A. it’s not essential to be ready for the possible risk
  B. it doesn’t make sense to take the potential danger seriously
  C. it’s worthwhile to take proper measures to avoid possible risk
  D. it’s wise to keep batteries or food supplies at home

On behalf of the Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT), I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for conserving electricity during this period of continuous hot, dry weather in Texas.
At ERCOT, we have been working around the clock to keep the electricity flowing, making sure you have the resources you need to stay productive and well this summer. While we are always charged with making sure you have adequate electricity, this summer has caused a particularly serious challenge to the electric grid(电网).
Because the heat has been sustained over the entire state with little or no rain or cloud cover, the strain on the electric grid has been greater than ever before. In Dallas and Austin, we are beating all-time records for triple-digit heat. We have hit three all-time demand peaks in the last two weeks alone, meaning we’ve used more electricity on three days this summer than on any other day in the history of ERCOT, which covers most of Texas.
Additionally, Texas is experiencing economic and population growth while much of the rest of the country is not. All of these factors are contributing to very high energy usage this summer.
As you probably read in your newspaper or saw on the news, ERCOT has issued appeals for conservation across the state this August. We have encouraged businesses and residential customers to help us save electricity between the critical hours of 3 and 7 p.m.
For instance, turning off unnecessary lights, appliances and electronic equipment can help conditions significantly.
Conservation efforts help us avoid statewide rotating outages(轮流停电)and keep your lights on and air-conditioners running. Conservation not only keeps power and cool air flowing to every citizen, it ensures that uninterrupted power flows to critical care customers, who are easily harmed in the extreme heat.
While ERCOT has not called for rotating outages this summer, it is important to remember that we only carry out these orderly, temporary outages to prevent a catastrophic collapse of the electric grid. As you may remember from the Northeast blackout a few years ago, once a grid failure occurs, it can take days to restore power to all consumers. Your conservation efforts help us prevent this from happening.
While ERCOT always carries reserves, our power supply is not unlimited. With your help and conservation efforts, though, we can keep residents and businesses healthy and productive this summer.
 
67. The author’s purpose in writing thepassage is to______.
  A. express his gratitude to businesses for keeping productive
  B. thank his staff for their great effort
  C. explain the reasons for the electricity shortage
  D. express thanks to citizens in Texas for their effort to save electricity
68. Serious challenge to the electric grid is due to the following facts Except______.
  A. non-stop hot, dry weather
  B. little or no rainfall all over the state
  C. rapid growth in energy production
  D. economic and population growth
69. There have been no statewide rotating outages this summer because______.
  A. no electric equipment works in businesses at night
  B. consumers try to use as little electricity as possible at the peak time
  C. air-conditioners don’t work in the evening
  D. residents turn off all the lights between 3 and 7 p.m.
70. We can know from the passage that________.
  A. a grid failure occurred in the Northeast several years ago
  B. the residents of Texas don’t like hot, dry weather
  C. more electricity has been consumed this summer than in any other summer
  D. it takes weeks for the grid to return to normal once it fails

As the last sentence says “because they did not know that the orphanage was a bad place to live and a very bad place to die“ (l.49/50), you can see, the boy is thinking of himself in this sentence. He once went to the orphanage lie the butterflies without knowing that it is a bad place to live and a very bad to die. There was no one who told him to go away, who shooed him away. But the boy learned that “the orphanage is a bad place to live and a very bad place to die”. I think in last sentence of the story you can feel the desire for being told not to come to the orphanage. But he went there and now he is pinned down there to the strict rules as the butterflies are pinned down on the cardboard.
Furthermore, and what makes the story even more sad but also even more interesting is the fact, that this could be a true story. It is nothing that is hard to fancy. It is a story that could happen in real just in the orphanage at the next corner.
Roger Dean Kiser created a beautiful, moving and realistic story with and incredible depth. It even can bring tears into your eyes while reading for the first time.

短文写作:
Possible version:
   Years of school life has taught me a lot of things, of which sharing is the most significant for me.
   In fact, I didn’t realize its significance until I failed the mid-term exam last October, during which time I studied less hard. At first, I was addicted to reading some science fictions in and outside class and didn’t do any homework. As a result, I was less active in class and felt depressed. Then my teacher and classmates talked about my studies with me and I told them about my worries. Thus my anxiety was beginning to be reduced with their help and I regained confidence.
   It is sharing with others rather than keeping my worries to myself that has relieved me of trouble and made my studies more efficient. (130 words)
