第三部分阅读理解(共15 小题；每小题2 分，满分30 分)
My granddaughter, Shari, owns The Berry (莓果) Factory in Sacramento, California,
and her mother, Joan, and I were helping with the Valentine’s Day rush. We’d dipped (浸泡)
hundreds of berries, arranged gift baskets and packaged orders to be shipped around the country.
By the end of the day, the two middle-aged women, Joan and I, were exhausted.
Shari didn’t seem tired. That was typical Shari. Though she was very busy, I’d seen
her give away berries to everybody — parking attendants, mail carriers and
hairdressers. “For me?” they would say, bursting into a smile.
As a “thank you”, Shari took us out for dinner. But there was a 45-minute wait
at her favorite restaurant. “No big deal. There’s another place just up the road,”
she said, driving us there. This time we walked right in.[来源:学*科*网Z*X*X*K]
When the waitress came to take our drink orders, Shari reached into her handbag,
pulling something out. “I want you to have these,” she said, handing the waitress
a box of chocolate-dipped strawberries. “She will love those berries!” I thought.
But the waitress seemed startled. She only let out a “thank you” before grabbing the
box and rushing into the kitchen.
A few minutes later, the waitress returned with our iced tea. “I apologize,”
she said. “My best friend and I had promised to send each other something every
Valentine’s Day. But she passed away last year. I didn’t know how I’d get through
this day without her. Then you handed me that box.” “I’m so sorry to hear that,”
said Shari. “It’s not much, but I hope you can enjoy them.” “Oh, I will,” the waitress
said. “See, every year we always sent each other the same thing; a box of
chocolate-dipped strawberries bought from our favourite store, The Berry Factory.”

A lazy Susan is an addition to a table that is designed to assist in moving
food from one person to another while dining. This is achieved through the use of
a turntable (转盘), which usually moves the food in a circle when it is pushed by those at the
table. In this way, the food never has to be picked up and passed around the table. Instead, it
remains in place on the lazy Susan.
A lazy Susan may also be a part of a kitchen cabinet (橱柜). In this sense, the lazy
Susan is a type of shelving unit within the cabinet that is able to turn around its axis(轴心) . One
may turn the lazy Susan in order to find certain goods in storage. From the outside, a lazy Susan
appears to be two cabinets that are located at a right angle (直角) to each another. When one of
these cabinets is pushed, however, both doors move and the lazy Susan is revealed inside.
It is believed that Thomas Jefferson invented the lazy Susan in the 18th century,
though it was called “dumbwaiter” at that time. It is said that Jefferson invented
the lazy Susan because his daughter complained she was always served last at table
and, as a result, never found herself full when leaving the table. Others believe
that Thomas Edison was the inventor, as he is believed to have invented the turntable
for his phonograph (留声机). The turntable may have developed into the lazy Susan later.
Regardless of who invented it, it wasn’t until 1917 that the term “lazy Susan”
was used in an advertisement for the invention. In Britain, however, the term
“dumbwaiter” is still used rather than “lazy Susan”. The reason for the naming of
it is still a mystery. One theory is that it was named after either Jefferson’s or
Edison’s daughter, both of whom were named Susan.
67. What is a “la zy Susan”?
A. A waitress B. A convenient tool C. A table
D. A cabinet
68. According to those who believed Thomas Jefferson invented the lazy Susan,
A. his daughter was very lazy B. the lazy Susan didn’t exist
until the 18th century
C. Thomas Edison was his friend D. Thomas Edison didn’t invent the
69. We can learn from the last paragraph that ___________.
A. the lazy Susan can work by itself
B. the lazy Susan was named after Thomas Edison’s daughter
C. how the lazy Susan got its name remains unknown
D. the lazy Susan was invented in Britain
70. The writer wrote the passage mainly to _________.

第六部分任务型阅读(共10 小题；每小题0.5 分，满分5 分)
When young children are learning to ride a bicycle, they require that their parents hold on to
the back of the bike so that they gain confidence and won’t fall off.
However, when children leave to go to college, or get married, parents must accept that their
children are riding off into their own future. At this time, parents shouldn’t stand back and with
the children gone, they are left with an empty nest. How can parents get through this period of
The first thing you should do is nothing at all. You should actually take some time to rest
since your child was born. Just relax and reward yourself for the work you put into your child.
Taking some time for yourself will allow you to adjust to the change and figure out how you
really feel about your child’s departure (离开). You shouldn’t compare how you feel with how
other people feel, as everyone’s experience of an empty nest is different.
Exercise is a great mood lifter. A physical fitness program may have been one of the first
sacrifices (牺牲) you made when your child came along; now, with fewer duties, you’ll have time
to hit the gym regularly. If you have a friend who also has become an empty nester recently, you
may have found a new companion. Not only will you get the chance to share dealing with tips,
you’ll also create social opportunities for yourself, which will get you out of that empty house if
you need to.
We all have those things that we say we’ll do or learn “someday”. If you’re an empty nester,
the “someday” might just be now.
If you’re not sure exactly what to do in all your spare time, take your time and think about it.
It will, however, probably be easier to figure out your dream when you’re out. Try exploring a
nearby museum or attraction you’ve never visited.
Many parents may fear an empty nest because they worry that their little birds have flown
away forever. Try setting up a regular phone date with your child. A once-a-week call may make
you feel satisfied while giving your child a reasonable degree of freedom.

Dear Li Fang,
I read your letter yesterday. It’s good that you have a high aim for yourself
and you know what has prevented you from achieving high scores in exams. But you
should remember that even the very best student can make mistakes sometimes. So don’t
put too much pressure on yourself.
As far as I am concerned, learning from your mistakes in past exams is a quick
way to stop making the same mistakes next time. To begin with, if there are questions
that can’t be solved by yourself, you should turn to your teachers or classmates
for help. What’s more, during the exams you’d better make a good plan to distribute
your time according to the questions. Besides, try to leave a few minutes at the
end to check your answers.
Enjoy the challenge that each new exam brings to you. I believe a good learning
habit will finally help you gain success.
