（A ） Why are so many people so afraid of failure? Quite simple because no one tells us how to fail so that failure becomes an experience that will lead to growth .We forget that failure is part of the human condition and that every person has the right to failure. Most parents work hard at either preventing failure or protecting their chidren from the knowledge that they have failed. One way is to lower standards. A mother describes
her child’s hastily made table as “perfect”,even though it wobbles(摇晃)on uneven legs. Another way is to shift blame. If John fails science, his teacher is unfair or stupid. The trouble with faiure prevention devices is that they leave a child un equipped for life in the real word . The young needno one can win all the time—and that it is possible to enjoy a game even when you don’t win. A child who’s not invited to a birthday party, who doesn’s make the honor roll or the baseball team, feels terrible, of course, But parents should not offer a quick consolation(安慰)prize or say, “It doesn’t matter” because it does. The young should be allowed to allowed to experience
disappointment and be helped to master it.
Failure is never pleasurable. It hurts adults and child alike. But it can make a positive contribution to your life once you learn to use it. Step one is to ask “why did I fail?”Resist the natural impulse to balme someone else. Ask yourself what you did wrong and how you can improve .If someone else can help, don’t be shy about inquiring. to learn that no one can be best at everying. 36. This passage mainly tells us about ___________.
A. the reason why people fail B how to fail
C the ways to prevent failures D the importance of facing failures
37. The second paragraph tells us ____.
A. how a mother praised her children
B. two ways of failure prevention most parents used when their children fail
C. how to shift blame
D. parents should blame their children at the proper time
38 When the writer says “every person has the right to fail”, he means “__________--”
A the world is full of failures B everyone makes mistakes
C failures are not common in our lives D no one can grow up without failures 39 By saying “protecting their children from the knowledge that they have failed”. The writer means that most parents try their best__________
A to let their children know that they won’t fail. B to teach their children about the knowledge of failure
C to provide their children with the knowledge against failure .
D to keep their children from realizing that they failed. 40 According to the passage , if you are facing failure ,you should _________
A blame someone else B face it yourself and not ask others for help
C forget it as soon as possible D think it over and find ways to improve it ( B ) It feels like every time my mother and I start to have a conversation, it turns into an argument. We talk about something as simple as dinner plans and suddenly, my mother will push the conversation into World War III. She’ll talk about my lack of a bright future because I don’t plan to be a doctor. And much to her disappointment, I don’t want to do any job related to science, either. In fact, when I was pushed to say that I planned to major(主修) in English and communications, she nearly had a heart attack.
“Why can’t you be like my co-worker’s son?” s he bemoans all the time. Her
co-worker’s son received a four-year scholarship and is now earning 70,000 dollars a year as an engineer. I don’t know what to answer except that I simply can’t be like Mr. Perfect as I’ve called the unnamed co-worker’s son. I can’t be like him. I’m the type of person who loves to help out in the community, write until the sun goes down, and most of all, wants to achieve a career because I love it, not because of fame (名声) or salary. I understand why my mother is worried about my future major. I’ve seen my mother struggle to raise me on her small salary and work long hours. She leaves the house around 6:30 am and usually comes home around 5 pm or even 6 pm. However, I want her to know that by becoming a doctor, it doesn’t mean I’ll be successful. I’d rather follow my dreams and create my own future.
41. Which of the following topics do the writer and his mother often talk about?
A. The writer’s studies. B. The writer’s future job
C. Dinner plans D. Wars around the world
42. We can infer from Paragraph 1 that the writer’s mother ____________.
A. doesn’t want the writer to major in English
B. doesn’t think the writer should be a doctor
C. gets along very well with the writer
D. doesn’t think working in the science field is a good idea
43. The underlined word “bemoans” in Paragraph 2 most probably means _____________.
A. agrees B. shouts C. complains D. smiles 44. Which of following statements is probable TRUE ab; out the writer?
A. He wants to be like his mother’s co-worker’s son. B. He wants to find a job in his commun ity in the future.
C. He doesn’t think his mother’s co-worker’s son is perfect. D. He wants to do so something he really likes in the future. 45 We can know from the last paragraph that_________

C the wri ter doesn’t think being a doctor is good
D the writer sometimes thinks his mother’s advice is very good
（ C ）
A British judge ruled recently that swearing (咒骂) at the police is not a crime (犯罪), setting off a heated debate（辩论） across the nation. Denzel Cassiues Harvey , 19 ,was stopped outside his home in Hackney , East
London , by police officers who thought he was carrying drugs. He was fined ￡50 by a count for repeatedly （重复）swearing at the police who were searching him for drugs. But judge David Bean overturned(推翻) the decision of the previous（以前的） court . He said that police officers hear foul language too frequently to be offended （冒犯）. Judge David Bean said the foul language used by Harvey was unlikely to cause the police officers harm , alarm or distress（苦恼）, because it was so “common”.
The judge may have been right to cancel（取消） the fine in this individual case . But there are massive problems with what he said when making the ruling . Foul language is frequently directed at police officers, but this doesn’t mean that it should be accepted as part of their working life.
How can we justify（证明） this ? There are the people who devote their lives to protecting us. What does it say about our respect for the police , if we see them as people who can be spoken to abusively (粗暴地) without a second thought? There are many times that police officers do not penalize member of the public for swearing at them and it would be impractical（不切实际的） to punish every person that abuses(辱骂) them with foul language . But if officers feel that someone has crossed the line , they should not be criticized for reacting（反应） to this . They are there to make these judgement and we need to allow them to do so. The question is not what is said, but how the language is used. If a person swears with genuine（真实的） aggression （进攻，侵犯）and aims to cause fear they should be penalized.
The police are enforcers （实施者）of the law, not mute（无声的） punch bags.(沙袋) 46 Why was Denzel Cassiues Harvey stopped by police officers?
A Because he was carrying drugs in his pocket.
B Because the police suspected that he was carrying drugs
C Because he swore at police officers on duty.
D Because he was a wanted criminal. 47 What do you know about David Bean ?
A He is 19 years old B He offended police officers
B He canceled the ￡ 50 fine D He was a police officer
48 What does the writer think of Judge David Bean’s ruling ?
A He disapproves of David Bean’s ruling
B He thinks it right for Judge David Bean to cancel the fine.
C He thinks Judge David Bean’s ruling sounded reasonable.
D He thinks highly of David Bean’s ruling.
49 What does the underlined word “penalize” mean ?
A Offend B Abuse C Criticize 50 Which of the following is the best title ? D Punish
A Law needs to protect the police, too
B Swearing at the police should be banned
C Denzel Cassiues Harvey’s case set off a heated debate
D Judges are supposed to support the police
（ D ） What exactly is a lie ? Is it anything we say which we know is untrue ?Or is it something more than that ?For example, suppose a friend wants to borrow some money from you. You say “I wish I could help you, but I am short of money myself.” In fact , you are not short of money but your friend is in the habit of not paying his debts and you don’t want t o hurt his feelings by reminding him of this. Is this really a lie ? Professor Jerald Jellison of the University of southern California has made a scientific study of lyi ng. According to him, women are better liars than men, particularly when telling a “white lie”, such as when a woman at a party tells another woman that she likes her dress when she really thinks it’s terrible. However, this is only one side of the story. Other researchers say that men are more likely to tell more serious lies, such as making a promise that they have no intention of carrying out. This is the kind of lie politicians and businessmen are supposed to be particularly skilled at :the lie from which the liar hopes to profit or gain in some way. Research has been done into the way people’s behavior changes in a number of small, unimportant ways when they lie. It has been found that if they are sitting down at the time, they tend to move about in their chairs more than usual. To the trained observer they are saying “I wish I were somewhere else now”. They also tend to touch certain parts of the face, particularly the nose. One explanation of this may be that lying causes a slight increase in blood pressure. The tip of the nose is very sensitive to changes and the increased pressure makes it itch. Another gesture that gives liars away is what the writer Decmond Morris in his book Man Watching calls the “mouth cover”. He says that there are several typical forms of this ,such as covering part of the mouth with the fingers, touching the upper lip or putting a finger of the hand at one side off the mouth. Such a gesture can be
understood as an unconscious(未察觉的) attempt on the part of the liar to stop himself from lying. Of course, such gestures as rubbing the nose or covering the mouth , moving about in a chair can not be taken as proof that the speaker is lying. They simply tend to happen more often in this situation. It is one gesture alone that gives the liar away but a whole number of things , and in particular the context(上下文) which the lie is told. 51.According to the passage, a white lie seems to be a lie ______.
A. that other people believe
B. that other people don’t believe
C. told in order not to hurt someone’s feelings D. told in order to take advantage of someone 52..Research suggests that women _____.
A. are better at telling less serious lies than men B. generally lie for more than men do
C. often make promises they intend to break D. lie at parties more often than men do 53..Researchers find that when a person tells lies _____.
A. his blood pressure increases measurably B. he looks very serious
C. he is likely to make some small changes in his behavior D. he uses his unconscious mind 54.The writer of the passage______.
A. hates lying B. enjoys lying
C. often tells a lie D. tries to study aboutc lying 55. Which of the following is not mentioned in the passage as a sign of lying ?
A. Touching one’s ears B. Rubbing the nose
C. Moving in a chair D. Covering the mouth
