第三部分：阅读理解（共 20 小题；每小题 2 分，满分 40 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，并在答题 卡上将该项涂黑。 A A new study shows that lead-based paint remains a worldwide threat to public health. Paint containing lead is a major cause of lead poisoning in children. The heavy metal enters the body when children breathe the paint dust or fumes in the air. Or when babies put their mouth on painted surfaces or swallow pieces of paint. Lead can damage the brain and the nervous system. It can decrease intelligence, create behavior problems and slow a child's growth. Researchers tested new household enamel paints(瓷漆) from twelve countries in Africa, Asia and South America. The paints were sold under different brand names. The study found that almost three-fourths of the brands had dangerously high levels of lead. Scott Clark is a professor of environmental health at the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine in Ohio. He said: "Most of the paint brands that we looked at have at least one sample that was above ten thousand parts per million, which is over a hundred times the current U.S. standard." The United States has restricted lead content in paint since 1978. Until this past month, the safety standard for consumer paints was six hundred parts per million. But the Consumer Product Safety Commission has just lowered the limit to ninety parts per million. The new study appears in the journal Environmental Research. The team found levels of lead as high as thirty-two thousand parts per million in tests on some paint samples from Ecuador. Professor Clark's team also published a study. It found that in 2006 the majority of new enamel paints imported from India and Malaysia contained lead at levels of five thousand parts per million. Lead paint can be a danger not only to people in the country where it is made. Exports can spread the danger to other countries. The professor says high quality paint can be produced without lead. He and his team are calling for a worldwide ban on lead-based paint. He says many parts of the world are doing too little to correct the problem of lead poisoning in children.
He notes that research has found no safe level of lead. Of course, lead paint is not the only cause of lead poisoning. Recently Chinese officials closed a manganese metal factory in Hunan province. More than one thousand children living nearby were reported to have high levels of lead in their blood. And in 2008, seventeen people died in Senegal after lead exposure from a battery recycling center. 56. According to the passage, how many ways can children be poisoned by lead? A. 2. B.3. C. 4. D.5. 57.From the passage, we can know that______. A.lead is a necessary part of almost all paint B.a safe level of lead can be found sooner or later C.much has been done to deal with the problem of lead poisoning D.paints imported from India in 2006 didn’t reach the safety standard 58.Waht can we learn about Mr.Clark and his research team? A.They have won the battle against the problem of lead poisoning. B.They managed to lower the limit to ninety parts per million. C.They are very concerned about the problem of lead poisoning. D.They suggest stopping producing lead-based paints in most countries. 59.What can we learn about lead according to the passage? A.It is used to improve color of paint used in homes and other buildings and on steel structures. B.It can be found in some commonly imported consumer products in other countries. C.Paint exposure has already poisoned millions of children in Hunan province, China. D.Paint with it does not necessarily contribute to lead poisoning if dealt with properly. 60.What’s the passage mainly about? A.Dangerous lead-based paint being common around Asia. B.Urgent need for worldwide research on lead-based paint. C.Lead pain exposure remains serious global health threat. D.Lead-based paint remains a dangerous threat to children. B Despite its murderous fame, quicksand ( 流 沙 ) does not suck people under and swallow them, although it can hold a person tightly. The human body is much lighter in quicksand than in water, and sooner or later anyone trapped in it will float. But escaping alive is another matter. Quicksand is a mixture of fine sand and mud that has become oversaturated(过 饱和的) by water from an underground source. It looks solid, but behaves more like a liquid because water makes it much looser between the sand grains. Unlike most liquids, quicksand’s viscosity ( 黏 性 系 数 ) can suddenly change if it comes under pressure, for example under a human foot. The
surface gives way and the victim quickly sinks in up to the knees, surrounded by an area of dirty things that turns semi-solid around its victim. Escaping from the quicksand’s control requires a large amount of force. Without something solid to pull at, people often find they are stuck fast. Pulling at one leg simply makes quicksand’s control? Stay still and call for help. the other one sink further. So how do you escape from Staying still stops you sinking any further, until--with luck--help arrives on the scene. If no one appears and you need to draw yourself out, gently lie down on your back until your body is floating on the sand. Next, roll over onto your stomach and pull yourself forwards with your hands, so that you gradually “swim” towards firmer ground. It is a slow and dirty business, but it works. This technique has one drawback: it goes against a very powerful human instinct (本能). Faced with danger out in the open, nine out of ten people stay on their feet, hoping that they can run away. For someone who is stuck in mud or sand, this can make a bad situation worse, particularly if it is a cold winter’s night, with the dark tide rising, thousands of miles from home. 61. According to the passage, the best way to escape from quicksand is to _______. A. makes every effort to walk out of it quickly as in water C. wait for the chance to run out slowly step by step patiently 62. The underlined word “drawback” in the last paragraph is closest in meaning to “ ______”. A. disadvantage power B. D. requirement A. Quicksand is generally thought not to be dangerous B. Human body is heavier in quicksand than in water C. Quicksand can suck people and then hold them tightly the further he sinks in quicksand B. D. How D. The more someone struggles, A. The property of Where quicksand exists most C. What quicksand is made of. to escape from quicksand. 65. Which magazine is this passage probably taken from? A. Entertainment Weekly B. Newsweek C. National
B. try to swim out as D. roll yourself out
63. What can we know from the passage?
64. What is NOT discussed in the passage? quicksand.

Why does most of the world travel on the right side today? Theories differ, but there’s no doubt that Napoleon was a major influence. The French had used the right since at least the late 18th century. Some say that before the French Revolution, noblemen drove their carriages on the left, forcing the peasants to the right. Regardless of the origin, Napoleon brought right-hand traffic to the nations he conquered, including Russia, Switzerland and Germany. Hitler, in turn, ordered right-hand traffic in Czechoslovakia and Austria in the 1930s. Nations that escaped right-hand control, like Great Britain, followed their left-hand tradition. The U.S. has not always been a nation of right-hand rivers; earlier in its history, carriage and horse traffic traveled on the left, as it did in England. But by the late 1700s, people driving large wagons pulled by several pairs of horses began promoting a shift(改变) to the right. A driver would sit on the rear (后面的) left horse in order to wave his whip（鞭子） with his right hand; to see opposite traffic clearly, they traveled on the right. One of the final moves to firmly standardize traffic directions in the U.S. occurred in the 20th century, when Henry Ford decided to mass-produce his cars with controls on the left (one reason, stated in 1908; the convenience for passengers exiting directly onto the edge, especially… if there is a lady to be considered). Once these rules were set, many countries eventually adjusted to the right-hand standard, including Canada in the 1920s, Sweden in 1967 and Burma in 1970. The U.K. and former colonies such as Australia and India are among the western world’s few remaining holdouts（坚持不变者）. Several Asian countries, including Japan, use the left as well — thought many places use both right-hand-drive and left-hand-drive cars. 66. Why did people in Switzerland travel on the right? A. They had used the right-hand since the 18th century. B. Rich people enjoyed driving their carriages on the right. C. Napoleon introduced the right-hand traffic to this country. D. Hitler ordered them to go to against their left-hand tradition. 67. Of all the countries below, the one that travels on the right is ______. A. Australia B. England C. Japan D. Austria 68. Henry Ford produced cars with controls on the left _______. A. in order to change traffic directions in the U.S. B. so that passengers could get off conveniently C. because rules at that time weren’t perfect D. though many countries were strongly against that 69. According to the passage, which of the following is TRUE?
A. Before the French Revolution, all the French people used the right. B. People in Britain and the U.S. travel on the same side nowadays. C. The Burmese began to travel on the right in 1970. D. All the Asian nations use the left at present. 70. What would be the best title for this passage? A. Who made the great contributions to the shift of traffic directions? B. How cars have become a popular means of transportation? C. How Henry Ford produced his cars with controls on the left? D. Why don’t people all drive on the same side of the road? D The price of gold in the international market has increased manifolds(很多地) over the last decade or so, thus making it the first choice among the precious metals when it comes to investing (投资) money. Buying gold helps in improving your asset base, and also offers financial security from problems such as inflation(通货膨 胀). Cold coins and gold bars come in various sizes and weights. Before investing in gold, you need to study the current prices of this metal, as well as the trend of the rise and fall in gold price in the past. You will also have to follow some simple tips for buying gold bars: the bigger gold bars you buy, the lesser per ounce premium (额外费用) you have to pay. Cold coins are priced on the basis of their weight. You can either buy these coins from the government or from the private firms; the former is much more trustworthy though. However , there is an advantage of buying these coins from a local dealer as it helps in establishing a relationship with them, which can be helpful when you would want to sell these coins. Even though there wouldn’t be much of difference in the value of gold coins with two different dealers, it is ideal to compare the prices before opting to buy from a particular source. In some countries gold bars can be bought from the major banks, while other countries have licensed dealers for the same. Generally, the preferred source to buy gold bars from are gold dealers, mints and foundries(铸币厂和铸造厂). Other methods of purchasing these bars include auctions( 拍卖 ) and individuals. It is always better to take some efforts and check the history of the source. Don’t forget to check for the shipment charges. You can either hold these bars in your own possession, or keep them in a safety locker of a bank on your behalf. Even having the basic idea about how to buy gold for investment can help you in minimizing the risks associated with the process. Investment is a part of your future planning, and therefore these gold investment vehicles need to be chosen wisely. That being said, it is always on advantage to take advice from a stalwart(忠 实拥护者) of the field, who is good at financial planning and the ups and downs of the market.

This is one question millions of people over the globe ask themselves every now and then. It is not as if you are not working hard， but you simply may not know that there is a difference between work and productivity. Your plan is what gives you a clear picture of what you are aiming at， but the method of achieving may vary from time to time.
