第一节  (共15小题; 每小题2分, 满分30分)

    阅读下列短文,从每题所给的四个选项(A,B,C和D)中,选出最佳选项。

                                A

        For the business travelerwho’s all about efficiency: check out these hotels that will get you in and outwith a minimum(最少的)trouble.

        When you’re pressed for timeon a business trip, nothing can infuriate you more than a slow hotelcheck-in process. On your next trip, try these hotels that offer a speediercheck-in process.

◆ Marriott Detroit Airport

        Another option for businesstravelers in a hurry: Marriott is rolling out its mobile check-in app to 325hotels this year, including the Marriott Detroit Airport hotel. (I’ve testedthe app itself but not for a real visit quite yet.) here is the basic idea: youdownload the iPhone or Android app. The night before, you can “check-in”virtually. When you arrive, you get an alert that the room is ready and yourkey, which is already tied to your reservation, is waiting for you at the desk.

◆Hyatt Regency Minneapolis     

        I happened to stay at this hotel recently and liked how fast the kioskcheck-in works. The kiosk asks you to insert your credit card, similar to anairport terminal. The whole process took about 3 minutes. When I left, I wasequally impressed with the fast check-out: An agent meets you in the lobbywith, an iPad and asks for an email to use for a receipt. The big advantage:you never have to wait in line.

◆Radisson LaCrosse

        The Radisson is trying to make the kiosk process even faster. At a fewselect hotels like the Radisson Lacrosse in Wisconsin, you use a mobile app toregister and then receive a barcode by email or text. When you get to thekiosk, you can scan the barcode to get your key without any other stepsrequired. It’s super fast. You can find this new check-in system at theRadisson hotels in Salt Lake City, Seattle, and Phoenix as well.

What does the word ‘infuriate’, in Paragraph 2 most probably mean?

Aannoy.

Bremind.

Camuse.

Dimpress.

        Given that many people's moods are regulated by the chemical action ofchocolate, it was probably only a matter of time before somebody made thechocolate shop similar to a drugstore of Chinese medicine. Looking like asetting from the film Charlie&the Chocolate Factory, Singapore's ChocolateResearch Facility (CRF) has over 100 varieties of chocolates. Its founder isChris Lee who grew up at his parents' comer store(街角商店)with one hand almost always in the jar of sweets.

        If the CRF seems to be a smart idea, that's because Lee is not merely aseasoned salesperson but also head of a marketing department that has businessrelations with big names such as Levi's and Sony. That idea surely results inthe imagination at work when it comes to making different flavored(味道)chocolates.

        The CRF's produce is "green". made within the country anddivided into 10 lines, with the Alcohol Series being the most popular. TheExotic Series一withSichuan pepper, red bean (豆), cheese and other flavors一also does well and is fun to taste. And for chocolate snobs, whothink that they have a better knowledge of chocolate than others, theConnoisseur Series uses cocoa beans from Togo, Cuba, Venezuela , and Ghana,among others.

What is good about chocolate?

AIt serves as a suitable gift.

BIt works as an effective medicine.

CIt helps improve the state of mind.

DIt strengthens business relations.

              Grandparents Answera Call

        As a third generation native ofBrownsville, Texas, Mildred Garza never planned to move away. Even when herdaughter and son asked her to move to San Antonio to help their children, shepolitely refused. Only after a year of friendly discussion did Ms Garza finallysay yes. That was four years ago. Today all three generations regard the moveas a success, giving them a closer relationship than they would have had inseparate cities.

    No statistics show the number of grandparentslike Garza who are moving closer to adult children and grandchildren. Yet thereis evidence suggesting that the trend is growing. Even President Obama’smother-in-law, Marian Robinson, has agreed to leave Chicago and move into theWhite House to help care for her granddaughters. According to a study bygrandparents com. 83 percent of the people said Mrs. Robinson’s decision willinfluence the grandparents in the American family. Two-thirds believe morefamilies will follow the example of Obama’s family.

       “In the 1960s we were all a little wild and couldn’t get awayfrom home far enough or fast enough to prove we could do it on our own,” saysChristine Crosby, publisher of Grand, a magazine for grandparents. “We nowrealize how important family is and how important it is to be near them,especially when you’re raising children.”

        Moving is not for everyone. Almost everygrandparent wants to be with his or her grandchildren and is willing to makesacrifices, but sometimes it is wiser to say no and visit frequently instead.Having your grandchildren far away is hard, especially knowing your adult childis struggling, but giving up the life you know may be harder.

Why was Garza’s move a success?

AIt strengthened her family ties.

BIt improved her living conditions.

CIt enabled her make more friends.

DIt helped her know more new places.

        Since the 1970s, scientists have been searching for ways to link thebrain with computers. Brain-computer interface (BCI) technology could helppeople with disabilities send orders to machines.

        Recently,two researchers, Jose Millan and Michele Tavella from the Federal PolytechnicSchool in Lausanne, Switzerland, showed a small robotic wheelchair directed bya person's thoughts.

        In the laboratory, Tavella operated the wheelchair just by thinking aboutmoving his left or right hand. He could even talk as he watched the wheelchairand guided it with his thoughts.

       “Our brain has billions of nerve cells(神经细胞). These send signals through the spinal cord (脊髓)to the muscles(肌肉) to give us the ability to move. But spinal cord injuries or otherconditions can prevent these weak electrical signals from reaching themuscles.”Tavella says. “Our system allows disabled people to communicate withoutside world and also to control the machine.”

        The researchers designed a special cap for the user. This head cover picksup the signals from the scalp(头皮)and sends them to a computer. The computer understands the signals anddirects the motorized wheelchair. The wheelchair also has two cameras thatrecognize objects in its path. They help the computer react to orders from thebrain.

        Prof. Millan, the team leader, says scientists keep improving thecomputer software that understands brain signals and turns them into simpleorders. “The practical possibilities that BCI technology offers to disabledpeople can be divided into two kinds: communication, and controlling themachine. One example is this wheelchair.”

        He says his team has set two goals. One is testing with real patients, soas to prove that this is a technology they can benefit from. And the other isto ensure that they can use the technology over long periods of time.

How did Tavella operate the wheelchair in the laboratory?

ABy using his mind.

BBy talking to the machine.

CBy moving his hand.

DBy controlling his muscles.

People were always doing things that annoyed her, and    39    was ever good enough. She was highlyself-critical and also found fault with her friends. She became a really    40     person.

    Unfortunately, it took a horrible accident to change her   41   . Her best friend was seriously hurt in a carcrash. What made it almost    42    to deal with was that the day before the    43   ,Kerry had visited her friend and had spent the whole time criticizing her   44    of boyfriends, the way she was living, theway she related to her mother, and various other things she felt she needed to   45 . It wasn't until her friend was badly hurt that Kerry became   46    her habit of finding fault. Very quickly, shelearned to appreciate life rather than to   47    everything soharshly(刻薄). She was able to transfer her new wisdom to other parts ofher     48     as well.

    Perhapsmost of us aren't as extreme at fault-finding,    49   when we're honest, we can be sharply    50     of the world. I'm not suggesting you    51    problems, or that you pretend things are  52   than they are, but simply that you learn to allowthings to be as they are—     53    most the time, and especially when it's not a really big    54     .

    Train yourself to"bite your tongue”, and with a little    55   , you'll get really good at letting things go. And when you do,you'll get back your enthusiasm and love for life.

第二节(共5小题;每小题2分,满分10分)

    根据短文内容,从短文后的选项中选出能填入空白处的最佳选项。选项中有两项为多余选项。

    While you are traveling abroad, cultural mistakes are more serious thanlinguistic mistakes, which can lead to serious misunderstanding and evenill-feeling between individuals.      71    

    ●TouchingSomeone

     72    InMediterranean countries, if you don’t touch someone’s arm when talking to themor if you don’t greet them with kisses or a warm hug, you’ll be consideredcold. But backslap(拍背)someone who isn’t a family member or a good friend in Korea, and you'll makethem uncomfortable. In Thailand, the head is considered sacred—never even pat achild on the head.

    ●TalkingOver Dinner

In some countries, like China,Japan and some African nations, the food’sthe thing, so don’t start chatting about your day's adventures while everyoneelse is digging into dinner.     73    It’s not because your group is unfriendly, butbecause meal times are for eating, not talking.

    ●Removing Your Shoes or Not

    Take off your shoes when arriving at the door of a London dinner partyand the hostess will find you uncivilized, but fail to remove your shoes beforeentering a home in Asia, Hawaii, or the Pacific Islands and you'll beconsidered disrespectful. So, if you see a row of shoes at the door, startundoing your laces.      74    

    Once you are on the ground of a different country, remain highlysensitive to native behavior.  75     And don’t feel offended if somethingseems offensive—like queue jumping. After all, this is a global village, and weare all very different.

    A. Personal space varies asyou travel the globe.

    B. Asians consider removingshoes impolite at home.

    C. Never be completelysurprised by anything.

    D. The linguistic mistakemeans that someone is not fully expressing his idea.

第四部分: 语法填空 (共10小题,每小题1分,满分10分)

    阅读下面材料,在空白处填入适当的内容或括号内单词的正确形式。

    Many people believe that they    1    (suppose) to drink eight glasses of water    2    day, or about two liters.Why? Because that is    3    they have been told all their lives.     4    a new report offers some different advice. The experts say people should obey their bodies and they should drink as    5     water as they feel like drinking.

    The report contains some general      6     (suggest). The experts say that women should get about 2.7 liters of water    7   (day). Men should get about 3.7 liters. But wait in each case, that is more than eight glasses. There is an important difference. The report does not tell people how many glasses of water to drink.    8     fact, the experts say that    9    may be impossible to know how many glasses are needed to meet these guidelines. This is because the daily requirement can include the water    10    (contain) in foods.
