请认真阅读下面短文,从短文后各题所给的A、B、C、D四个选项中,选出最佳选项,并在答题纸上将该项涂黑。

Countless people appear in your life---familiar or strange, close or distant. Sometimes peopl e come into your life and you know right away that they were meant to be there to serve some sort of 36 , to teach you a lesson, or to help you 37 who you are or who you want to become. You never think about who these peopl e may be (possibly your roommate, neighbor, co-worker, long l ost friend, l over, or even a complete stranger), but when you l ock eyes with them, you know at that very moment they will 38 your life in some way.

And sometimes things happen to you that may seem horrible, painful and unfair at first, but with more 39 you find that without overcoming those difficulties you woul d have 40 realized your potential, strength, willpower, or heart.

Everything happens for a reason. Nothing happens 41 or by means of good luck. Illness, injury, love, lost moments of true greatness and complete stupidity all occur to 42 the limits of your soul. 43 these small tests whatever they may be, life woul d be like a smoothly paved(铺设), straight, flat road to 44 . It woul d be safe and comfortabl e, but dull and 45 . The people you meet who affect your life, and the success and d ownfalls you experience, help to create who you are and who you become.

Even the 46 experiences can be learned from. In fact, they are probably the most poignant(伤心的) and important ones. If someone hurts you, 47 you, or breaks your heart, forgive them, for they have helped you learn about trust and the importance of being cautious when you open your heart. If someone loves you, love them back 48 , not only because they love you, but because 49 , they are teaching you to love and how to open your 50 and eyes to things.

Make every day count. 51 every moment and take from those moments everything that you possibly can for you may never be able to experience it again. Talk to peopl e that you have never talked to 52 , and actually listen. Let yourself fall in l ove, break free, and set your sights high. Hol d your head up because you have 53 right to. Tell yourself you are a great individual and believe in yourself, for if you don’t believe in yourself, it will be hard for others to believe in you. You can make your life anything you wish. Create your own life and then go out and live it with absolutely no 54 .

Most importantly, if you LOVE someone, tell him or her, for you never know what tomorrow may have in 55 . And learn a lesson in life each day that you live.

That’s the story of life.

36. A. peopl e B. intention C. purpose D. advantage

37. A. figure out B. let out C. give out D. hold out

38. A. create B. affect C. challenge D. rescue

39. A. consid eration B. explanation C. expectation D. instruction

40. A. ever B. never C. already D. almost

41. A. on purpose B. by itself C. on principle D. by accident

42. A. set B. reach C. test D. exceed

43. A. Despite B. Without C. For D. With

44. A. anywhere B. somewhere C. nowhere D. everywhere

45. A. pointless B. bored C. undeserved D. meaningful

46. A. good B. different C. pl easant D. bad

47. A. watches B. l oves C. understands D. betrays

48. A. temporarily B. eventually C. unconditionally D. cautiously

49. A. in a way B. on the way C. under way D. by the way

50. A. mouth B. heart C. mind D. emotion

51. A. Expand B. Adjust C. Expect D. Appreciate

52. A. obviously B. entirely C. previously D. casually

53. A. every B. each C. proper D. exact

54. A. ambition B. hatred C. beliefs D. regrets

55. A. future B. store C. existence D. time

第三部分阅读理解(共15小题;每小题2分,满分30分)

请认真阅读下列短文,从短文后各题所给的A、B、C、D四个选项中,选出最佳选项,并在答题纸上将该项涂黑。

A

When traveling, it’s important to learn about the customs and etique tte of the global village. What we consider polite behavior at home isn't always accepted outside our borders.

Etiquette of Gift Giving

Gift giving should be a happy, positive experience. When selecting a present for someone in Netherlands, don't purchase fancy kitchen knives or scissors. Giving sharp, pointy objects as gifts is considered unlucky. Be careful when presenting flowers to a friend or a business partner in Russia. Yellow blooms suggest cheat or a relationship break up. Traditionally, red carnations are placed on the tombs of the dead. Writing cards or notes while visiting South Korea, be mindful of your pen's ink color. Writing a person's name in red ink traditionally suggests that the person has passed away-an important point to remember when giving a birthday card.

Eating Customs

Being early or on time is viewed as being rude, too eager or even greedy in Venezuela. If you are invited to someone's home for a meal, it's recommended that you arrive 10 minutes later than the requested time. When h aving a meal in Egypt, don’t use the salt shaker (盐瓶). It's insulting to your host to spread salt on your food, which means that you find the meal terrible. Japan is a very polite nation, and their fondness for etiquette extends to the use of chopsticks. According to Japanese custom, if you're in the middle of eating, use the opposite end of your chopsticks to secure food from a shared plate. When doing business in Turkey, it’s the custom for your host to

pay for your meal. Requests to split the bill won’t be accepted. If you would like to pay your fair share, Turks recommend inviting your host to a follow-up meal.

56. Which of the following is true according to the passage?

A. Giving a fancy kitchen knife to a friend from Russia is a good choice.

B. You can use blue ink to write notes to your friend from South Korea.

C. Dining with Japanese, one can use either end of the chopsticks to get food from shared plates.

D. Invited to a meal, one should arrive earlier to show respect for the host.

57. What does the underlined word “insulting” in Paragraph 3 refer to?

A. Respectful.

B. Challenging.

C. Indifferent.

D. Offensive.

58. Where is this passage probably from?

A. A news report.

B. A travel essay.

C. A culture column.

D. A food magazine.

B

Recently the barbican museum in London held an exhibition called the rain room. During the time this exhibition was open, my twitter stream was filled with photos of people standing in the rain room, accompanied by the caption “rain room@ the barbican!” and a location attachment to prove that they were indeed in the rain room.

This got me thinking. What were people actually saying by Tweeting about their visit? I think all they were doing was fulfilling the obligation that we have to share. Not sharing in the sense of treasuring a moment with people close to us, but sharing in the sense of “tell the world that I am doing a thing”.

It’s not sharing; it’s showing off. When we log in to Facebook or Twitter we see an infinitely updating stream of people enjoying themselves. It’s not real life, because people o nly post about the good things whereas all the dull or deep stuff doesn’t get mentioned. But despite this obvious fact, it subconsciously makes us feel like everyone is having a better time than us.

This is the curse of our age. We walk around with the tools to capture extensive data about our surroundings and transmit them in real-time to every friend we’ve made. We end up with a reduced understanding of reality because we’re more concerned about choosing a good Instagram filter(过滤器) for our meal than how it tastes.

I don’t think that it’s inherently wrong to want to keep the world updated about that you’re doing. But when you go through life robotically posting about everything you do, you’re not a human being. You’re just a prism that takes bits of light and sound and channels them into the cloud.

The key thing to remember is that you are not enriching your experiences by sharing them online; you are detracting from them because all your efforts are focused on making the look attractive to other people. Once you stop seeing things through the eyes of the people following you on Twitter or Facebook or Instagram, you can make your experiences significant, because you were there and you saw the sights and smelled the smells and heard the sounds, not snapped a photo of it through a half-inch camera lens.
