第二部分 阅读理解(共两节,满分 40 分) 第一节(共 15 小题:每小题 2 分,满分 30 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 The blooming of social media and interactive smartphone-based apps has proved that e-marketing is an unchangeable trend. In the case of China, the latest battlefield is beauty camera apps, which have become an overnight hit in the West. 1. MeituPic Developed by the Xiamen-based Meitu Inc, MeituPic is the company’s flagship beauty camera app and was the first to become a big hit among Western users. The app has drawn some 456 million users, who use it to post more than 6 billion photos every month. In addition to MeituPic, Meitu Inc has developed a series of beauty camera apps such as Beauty Plus, Poster Labs and Meipai, each specializing in facial feature improvement, video editing and many other features. 2. Pitu Tian Tian Pi Tu, is a beauty app developed by China’s Internet giant Tencent. Similar to other photo-editing apps, Pitu offers a number of beautifying filters, blemish(瑕疵) removing tools and virtual makeup choices for users to choose from. Launched in 2014, Pitu has accumulated 106 million monthly active users (MAUs). While the number is not as impressive as that of Meitu’ s apps, some argue that the user base of Tencent’ s gaming products and chat applications, such as QQ and

WeChat, gives Pitu great potential for further growth. According to Chinese app

watchers, Pitu’ s target audience is younger and more individualized than that of

MeituPic. 80 percent of Pitu’ s users are younger than 25, giving the app more room

to try out more new features.

3. FaceU

In contrast with most other beauty apps, FaceU, focuses more on the social

feature, encouraging users to video chat with friends and even strangers while

playing with its fun stickers (贴纸) — and the strategy is undoubtedly working.

Launched in 2016, the app, which mainly targets female users between 15 and 35, has

twice made it onto the Apple store’ s Chart for top apps.

21. Meitu Inc has developed a series of beauty camera apps except ______.

A. Meipai.

B. MeituPic.

C. Tian Tian Pi Tu.

D.

Beauty Plus.

22. What gives Tian Tian Pi Tu more room to grow potentially?

A. The amount of Meitu Apps’s potential users.

B. Users of Tencent’s gaming products and chat apps.

C. The various kinds of photo-editing functions.

D. The room to try out more new features.

23. According to the passage, what do the three Apps have in common?

A. They mainly target young users.

B. They all launched in 2016.

C. They specialize in photo editing.

D. They are popular and hot.

B

Almost everybody once felt loneliness. Loneliness doesn’t depend on how many people

you are surrounded, but actually is decided by how much socially connected you are. Social

media such as WeChat, QQ and Microblog is growing rapidly, which seems to have expanded

our network, but actually has thrown ourselves into the hole of loneliness. Now

loneliness is poisoning our mental health. To jump out of the “net”, recently the

concept of “cohousing” is introduced by some western architects(建筑师)and the new

living style is well-received in the US among seniors. So what’s cohousing?

Most cohousing communities are 15 to 35 private and individual houses built around

a public area where social interaction takes place. Those individual houses are actually

the same with common houses with living rooms, bathrooms, kitchens and bedrooms. In the

public area, there are a variety of public facilities like big kitchens. Residents can

regularly plan activities and meals together. Some neighborhoods have dinner every day

with work clearly given to each person. The closer ties in the cohousing communities

tend to increase people’s sense of security. In addition, cohousing units prove to be

economical. Although the house itself might be a little higher, the total costs can

be lower after considering energy savings through shared meals, transportation and

others.

The attitude towards “cohousing” is mixed. Intentional people-to-people

interaction is greatly valued the accepted by supporters. They treat the lifestyle as

the lifeline out of the hole of loneliness. However, opponents hold that privacy

outweighs intentional social interaction. They find no need to change their current

living style and want to stay unchanged as long as possible. Such opinion is challenged

by some people. They argue when those people get older with sudden death of their income

or even mate, they will realize the value of cohousing communities. They are suggested

to plan ahead. What’s your idea? Will you choose to live in cohousing communities?

24.The author uses “social media” in the first paragraph to _________.

A. show the problem of using them

B. persuade readers to value

communication

C. remind readers of their ways of communication D. prove the importance of them

25. What can we learn from the cohousing communities?

A. The communities are built in an area which contains 15-35 public houses.

B. Residents plan activities and meals together in their individual houses.

C. The houses in the communities are similar to common houses with necessary facilities.

D. The communities will cost people more money because the price of the house is higher.

26. What’s the author’s attitude towards “cohousing”?

A. Uninterested.

B. Doubtful.

C. Worried.

D. Objective.

27. What would be the best title for the text?

A. What is a “cohousing community”?

B. Would you choose “cohousing”?

C. How do you purchase “cohousing”?

D. Why does “cohousing” appear?

C

Despite the countless differences between people's characters and careers, or

their likes and their dislikes, it seems that we are all connected in this wonderful life by one thing — the pursuit (追求) of happiness.

For me, happiness is horse riding, Cadbury's Creme Eggs and spending time with

my friends. Some people are at their happiest at home, while others find their

paradise (乐园) through traveling in far?off foreign lands. Happiness can be as

simple as a surprise bunch of fresh flowers or a really strong coffee, just when you need it most. Sometimes, happiness comes from spending time with loved ones;

at other times, it's having a quiet night at home, with nothing but a movie and a

comfortable bed for company.

Since it comes in so many shapes and sizes, it's sometimes easy to take happiness

for granted. Maybe you overslept, missed the bus and had to walk to school in the rain, only to be told off for being late. Or perhaps, because of work, you had to

cancel plans with friends, despite looking forward to seeing them for ages. Forgotten

keys, delayed flights, an argument with your parents, untimely illness or injury ...

all very frustrating and understandably guaranteed to make you feel unhappy. Luckily, there are a few simple ways to make_the_glass_seem_half?full_again.

To start with, things like trying out cycling or walking instead of driving to work

and listening to music are great mood?boosters. Volunteering and getting involved

with a charity are two ways in which you can become happier through helping others.

Last but certainly not least, trying hugging your way to happiness; it's been suggested that we humans need at least five hugs a day. If you've been having a bad

day, there's nothing better than a good old bear hug.

28.What is the main idea of Paragraph 2? A.Happiness is getting what you need. B.Flowers can easily surprise someone. C.One man's meat is another man's poison. D.Happiness means different things to different people.
29.To tell us that people are easy to take happiness for granted, the author ________.

A.performs an experiment C.tells an interesting story

B.provides some examples D.presents some difficulties

30.By “make the glass seem half?full again”, the author means “________”.

A.make up for your loss

B.refill the glass half full

C.make you feel happy again

D.help you seem like a positive man

31.What is the best title for the text? A.Wealth and happiness

B.The pursuit of happiness

C.How to find pure happiness

D.Don't ignore simple happiness

D

I left home to support my sister in her efforts to present a music festival.

She lives on the other side of the world, and I went to visit her, not wanting to

leave and feeling like I was leaving home against my will. However, I wanted to show

her my support because she is my only sister.

So I boarded the plane in mid-August, and hated the long flight. I arrived, tired

and hungry. I had left my husband of 2 years, alone, in our old New Orleans house.

I was all set and ready to perform for my sister for the music festival on Sunday

morning when I received a call from Chicago. The hurricane was predicted to hit our

city, and many people had already evacuated, but my husband chose to stay behind.

He could not get a call to me on the other side of the world, but he could call his

cousin in Chicago. He gave his cousin a message for me, that he would be just fine,

and not to worry.

As the day wore on, I finally took the stage in front of hundreds of Europeans,

and I realized, thanks to CNN, that New Orleans was under water.

I performed, hoping that my husband would survive. And I performed perfectly.

The audience stood and applauded. I left the stage and went straight to the TV. I

saw the street sign near my home, of Humanity Street, but nothing below it, except

water.

In the days that followed, I found out that my house, my car, my clothes, my

furniture, everything that I’d left behind was gone…but not my husband. He survived

by riding on the rear bumper(后保险杠)of a VW bus, holding on to the overhead luggage

rack, in the pouring rain, down the highway from New Orleans, half-way to Baton Rouge.

The rest of the journey was a long walk, but he survived.

By the first week of September, I flew back to the Baton Rouge airport, and hugged

my husband. Since then, our relationship has grown deeper; we have completely rebuilt

our house, bought a new car, bought new furniture and new clothes and joined an

inspirational, spirit-filled community.

32. Why did the author leave home?

A. To look after her sister.

B. To attend a music festival.

C. To watch a performance.

D. To visit her husband’s cousin.

33. How did the author feel when she left home?

A. Disappointed.

B. Worried.

C. Tired.

D. Unwilling.

34. What does the underlined word “evacuated” mean?

A. Gathered.

B. Struggled.

C. Escaped.

D. Hid.

35. What might be the title for the passage?

A. Lost it All, Gained Even More.

B. Once Gone, Never Returned.

C. Caught in the Hurricane.

D. Trapped in a Dilemma.

24-27 ACDB

28.解析:选D 段落大意题。该段主要讲不同的人对幸福的感受不同。 29.解析:选B 细节理解题。文章第三段第一句提到人们容易把幸福当成理所当然的事, 而下面举出了一系列例子说明其实很多小事足以让人感到不愉快。 30.解析:选C 词义猜测题。由后文“great moodboosters”, “become happier”及“If
you've been …… bear hug.”可知,make the glass seem halffull again在这里指的是“令你
重获幸福”。 31.解析:选B 标题归纳题。本文首段提出追求幸福。第二、三、四段分别从幸福的定义、 幸福的不易、怎样获取幸福三个方面展开论述,B项能更好地综合全文内容。 语篇解读:本文是一篇议论文。生活充满了喜怒哀乐,充满了失败与成功,也充满了希望与 绝望。生活是一个学*的过程,它告诉我们许多的真理。

【答案】32. B 33. D 34. C 35. A

【解析】

试题分析:作者离开家帮助姐姐的音乐节,她所在的城市遭遇到飓风,她家里的东西都失去

了,幸好丈夫幸存下来,他们重建了家园,而且感情更好了。

【小题 1】B 细节理解题。根据文章第一段的句子“I left home to support my sister in

her efforts to present a music festival.”可知,作者离开家是为了参加一个音乐节。

故选B。

【小题 2】D 细节理解题。根据文章第一段的句子“not wanting to leave and feeling like

I was leaving home against my will.”可知,作者在离开家的时候是不愿意的。故选D。

【小题 3】C 词义猜测题。根据文章第三段的句子“The hurricane was predicted to hit

our city,”飓风被预测袭击这个城市,很多人都逃离了。可知,“evacuated”的意思是“逃

离”。故选C。

【小题 4】A 主旨大意题。根据文章内容可知,作者离开家帮助姐姐的音乐节,期间她所在

的城市遭遇到飓风,她家里东西都失去了,幸好丈夫幸存下来,他们重建了家园,而且感情

更好了。Lost it All, Gained Even More是最好的标题。故选A。

【名师点睛】

词义猜测题。利用上下文提供的情景和线索,进行合乎逻辑的综合分析进而推测词义,是阅

读过程中的一大关键,这也是*年来高考考查的热点。最常见的就是利用上下文语境、常识

和语法关系推断词义。1.抓住所需推断词汇前后的“mean”或系动词或破折号等直接定义该

词的部分。2.抓住文章主旨与该段所表达的中心。特别对于议论文要牢记论点与论据的相互

支撑关系。【小题 3】C词义猜测题。根据文章第三段的句子“The hurricane was predicted

to hit our city,”飓风被预测袭击了这个城市,很多人都逃离了。可知,“evacuated”

的意思是“逃离”。故选C。

36.选C 第一空前提到只有父母会无条件地爱我们,第一空后又讲到只有结婚、生子之后才 能体会到那种情感。由此推断第一空选C项最合适。
37.选G 第二空后一句提到没有*静的心态,人是不会快乐的。由此可知,此处选G项。 38.选F 根据本段标题Failure and success以及第三空后一句“It helps us to touch the
sky ...”可知,选F项“失败是通向成功之路”最合适。 39.选A 本段标题为Hope and despair,第四空前提到希望让生活得以继续,希望让我们有
梦想,第四空的原因状语从句提到因为黑夜过后总会迎来黎明,因此此处选A项,生活 告诉人们即使在最黑暗的日子也不要绝望。 40.选B 本段第一句提到昨天已经过去,不必后悔,那么只有今天努力,才会有美好的明天。 故选B项。 一、 完型 语篇解读:本文讲的是作者放弃了优越的工作,只为实现童年的梦想。也许, 就像

作者说的,这个世界真的永远属于勇于追梦的人! 41.解析:选D 句意:我记得当时坐在礼堂里,听着齐格勒先生的演讲,他把每个人都说得 精神高涨、跃跃欲试。raise sb.’s spirits意为“使振奋;使鼓起勇气”,该短语在句中 作listen to的宾语补足语,即listen to sb. do sth.结构。 42.解析:选A 根据下一句“When we got to the car”可推断此处表示:离开那儿的时候,
我 觉得自己好像已经无所不能了,故A项正确。 43.解析:选C 根据第 44 空后的“I want to be a motivational speaker just like Mr.
Ziglar”可知 此句表示:我想让人们产生那样的感觉。使役动词make后接不带to的不定式作宾语补足语, 即:make sb. do sth.,意为“使某人做某事”,符合句意。故C项正确。 44.解析:选B 分析句子成分后可知,此处ask后接的是宾语从句,从句中mean后缺少宾 语,故用what引导,意为“什么”。故B项正确。 45.解析:选A 根据下一段首句“Recently, I began seeking my dream ...”的提示可知
此处表示 一个梦想诞生了,故A项正确。 46.解析:选A 句意:我在一家财富 100 强公司工作了四年,从一个销售培训人员做到地 区销售经理,在我事业达到巅峰时我离开了这家公司。根据语义可知此处用after引导时间
状 语从句。故A项正确。 47.解析:选A 根据此空后的“and ending as a regional (地区的) sales manager”可

自 己)呢?故C项正确。下文 56 空后“I was ready and didn’t need a god’s help”也有
提示。 56.解析:选A 句意:我意识到过去自己所做的一切都是为这一刻做好准备。根据句意可 知此处everything正确。

夫失业了,故 这里指“我”刚下定决心,就经受了考验,故D项正确。 59.解析:选C 此处指:我刚辞职,丈夫就失业了,我们一份收入都没有了。家里一分钱 都没有不符合常理,故不能选择money。 60.解析:选B 根据句意可知,此处表示:我也开始有新客户预约演说,故B项正确。此 外根据上文的“a motivational speaker”提示也可知这是与演说有关的。

书面表达 Dear Sarah, I’m very glad to receive your last e-mail. At your request, I’d like to tell you something about my school life. This year I am Senior 3, and I have six subjects to learn every day. School hours usually begin at 7 am and end at 8:30 pm. We are making the most of every minute, preparing for the coming college entrance examination. Though time is precious, I try to do some sports or do some reading after class. Sometimes, too, I surf the Internet to update and amuse myself. It’s been my dream to go to Peking University ever since I went to senior high school because of its strong cultural atmosphere as well as its high academic status. I’d appreciate it if you can tell me something about your school life as well. I’m looking forward to it.
