While I drove him home,he sat in stony __4__.I was angry with him and I didn't say a word.On arriving,he __5__ me in to meet his family.As we walked toward the __6__ door,he paused in front of a small tree,__7__ the tips of the branches with both hands.When opening the front door,he __8__ into another person.His brown-colored face was full of smiles and he __9__ his two small children and gave his wife a kiss.__10__ he walked me to the car.We passed the tree and my __11__ got the better of me.I asked him about what made him so __12__ after he arrived home.

“Oh,that's my trouble __13__,” he replied.“I know I can't __14__ having troubles in the job,but one thing's for sure,those troubles don't

__15__ in the house with my wife and the children.So I just hang them up on the tree every __16__ when I come home.Then in the morning I __17__ them up again.Funny thing is,” he smiled,“when I come out in the morning to get those __18__,there aren't nearly as many as I __19__ hanging up the night before.”

(lose)”一个小时的工作时间。故选A项。其他三项意思均不合文意。] 2.A.charge B.transfer C.work D.recover

体裁:记叙文 话题:人物与事件 词数:270 时间:5′

How to judge a piece of news? Is it good or bad? It depends on how you see things.You can be bitter after being cheated.Or you can choose to move on with your life.

Robert De Vincenzo,the great Argentine golfer,once won a tournament(锦标赛) and,after receiving the check and smiling for the cameras,he went to the club house and prepared to leave.Some time later,he walked alone to his car in the parking lot and was approached by a young woman.

She congratulated him on his victory and then told him that her child was seriously ill and near death.She did not know how she could pay the doctor's bills and hospital expenses.

De Vincenzo was touched by her story,and he took out a pen and wrote on his winning check for payment to the woman.“Make some good days for the baby,” he said as he put the check into her hand.

The next week he was having lunch in a country club when a Professional Golf Association official came to his table.“Some of the boys in the parking lot last week told me you met a young woman there after you won that tournament.” De Vincenzo nodded.“Well,” said the official,“I have news for you.She's a cheat.She has no sick baby.She's not even married.She robbed you by a trick,my friend.” “You mean there is no baby who is dying?” said De Vincenzo.“That's right,” said the official.“That's the best good news I've heard all week.” De Vincenzo said.

22.We may infer from the passage that Robert De Vincenzo ________.

A.would ask his money back from the woman

B.would never trust anyone from then on

C.often donated his money to the poor

D.was a kind-hearted and helpful man

答案 D [推理判断题。从文章第四段和最后一段的最后可以看出,Robert De Vincenzo是一位心地善良而又乐于助人的人。故选D。] 23.Why did Robert De Vincenzo give the check to the woman?

A.Because he wanted to get a good name.

B.Because he was moved by the woman's words.

C.Because he was congratulated by the woman.

D.Because he knew her well.

答案 B [细节理解题。根据第四段中的De Vincenzo was touched by her story可知,Robert De Vincenzo因为被这位妇女的话所感动,所以给了她钱。]

答案 C [细节理解题。根据最后一段“You mean there is no baby who is dying?” said De Vincenzo.“That's right,” said the official.“That's the

best good news I've heard all week.” De Vincenzo said可知,Robert De Vincenzo认为一周以来最好的消息是“医院里没有要死亡的孩子”。]Ⅲ.阅读下面材料,在空白处填入适当的内容(1个单词)或括号内单词的正确形式。

Nowadays many college graduates are looking forward to obtaining employment in big cities,unwilling to work in the countryside.As a matter

of fact,there are not enough opportunities to satisfy most of the job hunters

in big cities,while in the countryside talented people are badly needed and a

lot of posts are waiting for them.Rural areas are a vast world.There college graduates can put their abilities to better use and will be able to make greater contributions to the development of new countryside.Therefore,I believe

they can have as bright a future in the country as they have in the city.
