南京六合实验高级中学高一英语午练(6.25

一、阅读理解

 A

A man had two large pots. One of the pots had a crack (裂缝) in it, so while the other pot always delivered (运送) a full pot of water at the end of the long walk from the stream to his house, the cracked pot arrived only half full. This went on every day for years.

One day a neighbor asked the man, “One of your pots has been broken for years. It can only deliver half its load, so you don’t get full value from your efforts. Why don’t you buy a new one?”

The man smiled and said, “Please follow me to my house, and you may see some beautiful flowers.” On the way to the man’s house, the neighbor took notice of the sun warming the beautiful wild flowers on the side of the path.

The man said to the neighbor, “Did you notice that there were flowers only on one side of the path, but not on the other side? That’s because I have always known about the flaw (缺陷) of my pot. I planted flower seeds on one side of the path. Every day when I walk back from the stream, the broken pot waters them. For years, I have been able to pick these beautiful flowers to decorate (装饰) my house. Without the broken pot, I would not have this beauty.”

3. We can learn from the passage that the man ______.

     A. told a lie to his neighbor          B. accepted his neighbor’s suggestion

     C. took advantage of the flaw of his pot                  D. didn’t like his broken pot

4. What is the best title of the passage?

     A. A man and his neighbor           B. A way of planting flowers

B

Many years ago in a small village, an old man was hired to clear the spring (泉水) up on the mountain. He patrolled (巡逻) the spring every day, and swept away all the leaves and other things that would dirty the fresh flow of water. Soon, beautiful swans (天鹅) came to the clear spring, and the village became a popular attraction for visitors.

Years passed. One evening the town leaders held a meeting. As they looked at the salary list, one of them said, “Why do we keep this old man on year after year? I don’t think we need him or his work.” Later, the old man was asked to leave.

For several weeks, nothing changed. By early autumn, the leaves began to fall off the trees, and the spring was covered with leaves. A few days later, the water was much darker. Only a few months after the old man left, all the swans left, as did the tourists. Disease reached deeply into the village.

Quickly, the leaders held a special meeting. Realizing their mistake, they rehired the old man. Then within a few weeks, the spring began to clear up. Soon new life returned to the village.

So, my friends, do you see? No matter how small your work or your life seems to be, never overlook it. Anything we can do will make a difference.

5. The leaders decided to ask the old man to leave because they thought ______.

     A. his work was unnecessary         B. he did his work carelessly

7. What does the underlined word “overlook” mean in the last paragraph?

     A. Believe.         B. Ignore.           C. Praise.           D. Punish.

8. With this story, the writer wants to tell us that ______.

     A. even a small job can be important                      B. work can bring old people happiness

     C. everyone should always respect others

     D. everyone can be his own master

C

My younger sister Joy was fighting her final battle against cancer. I wanted Joy to go into a nursing home(疗养院), but she didn’t want to spend her final days there. I couldn’t be with her all the time, and she had no other family. God, who would watch over her?

Joy and I had come from a medical family. Mom died when my sister was four. Dad was a small-town general doctor in Glenview. His concern for his patients was wholehearted. Sometimes Joy and I had felt overlooked, expecting the attention he seemed to reserve(保留) for his patients. But no matter how busy he’d been all week, Dad would stand on the stairs every Sunday morning, polishing(擦亮) his shoes for church.

I called Dr. Croghan, Joy’s doctor, hoping she could persuade(劝说) Joy to move into the nursing home. “Your father also called,” she said. The signal of her phone went off, and the doctor suddenly hung up before I could correct her.

Three days later, Joy died at home. I called Dr. Croghan to thank her for all she’d done. Then I mentioned the phone call. “It had to be someone else who called you,” I said.

“He said he was Joy’s father clearly, “Dr. Croghan insisted. “He talked about her case and understood all the medical details.”

Who could it be? My dad died three years ago; it couldn’t have been him. Maybe it was one of the neighbors or my father’s former patients, many of whom were grateful to my father. Who could it be? I wonder.

9. Why did the author want Joy to go to a nursing home?

     A. Because Joy didn’t want to stay at home.

     B. Because Joy’s doctor advised her to do so.

     C. Because no one looked after her at home.

     D. Because it was Joy’s father’s advice.

10. From the passage, we can learn that the writer’s father ??????.

     A. was generous(大方的) and popular in Illinois

     B. worked hard and cared about his patients

     C. didn’t go to church when he was very busy

     D. was a famous doctor and cured many patients

11. Sometimes the writer and his/her sister felt as if their father ??????.

     A. had forgotten them             B. was cold-hearted 

     C. didn’t like them at all          D. never looked after them

D

Have you heard about the woman who put her wet dog in the microwave (微波炉) to dry it, and ended up cooking her dog by mistake? Or did you hear about the man who died at his desk at work, and nobody in the office noticed he was dead for five days? These stories have two things in common. They both are not true, and they both are urban legends (传闻). 

Usually, legends are stories of events from long ago. Urban legends, on the other hand, are stories in the recent past, perhaps even last week! Urban legends are that there are many different versions (版本) of the same story, with local information changed to make the story seem more real. Today, the Internet has become a common way for urban legends to spread very quickly.

A good example of an urban legend is the story of the girl who was killed by her jeans. In the 1980s, it was popular to wear very tight jeans. At that time, Levi’s sold special jeans that shrank (缩水) when you washed them. According to the story, a girl wanted to make her jean as tight as possible, so she wore them in the water. Unluckily, they shrank so much that the girl died. In fact, this legend came from a Levi’s advertisement on TV. In the TV ad, a man stepped into the water and his tight jeans became the right size.

However, some stories that sound like urban legends really come from real events. For example, there is a story about muggers (抢劫者) using snakes to rob people. There have been real reports about this. The muggers hold a snake in a person’s face and then take the person’s money. According to the legend, these muggers are very common, so you should keep an eye out for (密切注意) strangers carrying snakes.

12. What’s the main idea of the passage?

     A. It tells readers some surprising stories.    B. It tells readers what urban legends are.

     C. It tells readers how to make up urban legends.         

     D. It tells readers a TV ad.

13. The passage tells us that urban legends ______.

     A. usually take place in the country, or in small towns

     B. have the same version in different places   C. none of them come from real events

     D. are immediately known because of the Internet

14. What happened to the girl in the jeans story?

  A. She shrank.                             B. She played a part in a TV ad.

     C. Her jeans became too small.      D. A man stepped into the water, too.

15. Which story in the passage really happened?

     A. The dog in the microwave.      B. The dead man in the office.

     C. The girl killed by her jeans.      D. The muggers using snakes.

二、任务型阅读  请认真阅读下面短文,并根据所读内容在文章后表格中的空格里填入最恰当的单词。注意:每空格1个单词。

While in most present schools it is controversial (有争议的) whether students should wear uniforms. Most elementary schools have taken uniform policy. Uniforms serve students benefits in several ways. First of all, uniforms act as social equalizers (均衡器). Children often feel less social stress when everyone in the school dresses the same way. Students who can not be fashionable due to poverty are made to feel more comfortable among their classmates. Moreover, wearing uniforms influences students’ team spirit. Students are made to feel as if they are a part of a team by wearing uniforms. In addition, school uniforms would help students in other ways. Students would not be late for school as often because of the indecision (拿不定主意) about what to wear in the morning.

       However, when the topic comes to high school situation, further details should be carefully examined. The uniform is not the right answer to different problems that the high school education is facing. Having grown up already, most students no longer feel that uniforms help them become a part of the school. Furthermore, uniforms may not save parents as much money as many people think. Many times students don’t wear their school uniforms once they are out of school. Sneakers, jackets, boots and casual clothing will still be needed. What may first appear to be economical may not be accurate (正确的) in reality.

       It seems that the answer to the school uniform debate is not a simple “yes” or “no”. There is no clear consensus (共识) as to the benefits of school uniforms.

Title: Should students wear uniforms?

As for this troublesome question, there is no 1._______ that has been reached.

Patrick arrived in America a week ago. At first he thought his English learned at school was good enough. He was sure he could deal with any situation. He thought he would call a taxi on his arrival and talk with the driver to ask about the American ways. But very different from his idea, he found that he could hardly understand the driver. And the driver could not understand him either. It seemed to him that his efforts to learn English in those years had gone to waste.

Reading his mind, the driver said, “Well, don’t get worried. Never lose heart. In a few months, you’ll be able to speak English as well as I do.” “Yes,” Patrick thought. He would put in more practice. He would consider himself as a complete beginner in American English.

How Father’s Day Came into Being

The United States is one of the few countries in the world that has an (2)o_____ day on which fathers are honored by their children. On the third Sunday in June, fathers all across the United States are given presents, treated to dinner or otherwise made to feel special. The origin of Father’s Day is not clear.

In 1909, Mrs. Dodd approached her own minister and others in Spokane about (5)h______ a church service dedicated to fathers on June 5, her father’s birthday.

From (7)t______ on, the state of Washington celebrated the third Sunday in June as Father’s Day. Children made special desserts, or visited their fathers if they lived (8)a______.

States and organizations began lobbying(游说)Congress to declare an annual Father’s Day.

When children can’t visit their fathers or take them out to dinner, they send a (10)g______ card. Traditionally, fathers prefer greeting cards that are not too sentimental.

Before I learnt how to read, my father used to read comic strips (连环漫画) in the newspaper to me while I looked at the pictures. I always laughed at the funny pictures. As I got older, I learnt how to draw pictures, and I began reading comic books. I like the funny pictures and the amazing stories in comic books. My favorite comic book is Batman, which was first published by DC Comics, one of the two biggest comic book publishers in the USA. Batman is a superhero, and he fights crime in Gotham City. Batman was made into five successful films. It was very exciting to see my favorite superhero come alive on the screen! Batman is not the only comic superhero that was made into a film. Superman, Spiderman, Fantastic Four and X-Men have also become live-action films. Recently, I have been thinking that I would like to be a comic book artist in the future. I enjoy drawing and love comic books, so drawing seems like the perfect job for me.

I have been researching what I need to do to become a comic book artist. The first thing I need to do is make a collection of my best work. The collection should show that I am able to create original (原始的) drawings. I also have several ideas for comic book characters. It is not enough just to draw pictures, so my portfolio (文件夹) should have a series (系列) of drawings that tell a story. Besides drawing my characters well, I also have to be able to draw background scenes, such as city landscapes (风景).

As many comic book writers want to work for DC Comics and Marvel, the other large American comic book publisher, getting a job at one of these companies is very difficult. I might consider working for a smaller company at first. Then after I have some experience I can try to get a job at DC Comics, which has published some of my favorite comic books.

I hope I can realize my dream of being a comic book artist soon.

My (1)                of being a comic book artist
