As infants, we can recognize our mothers within hours of birth. In fact, we can recognize the
41 of our
mother?s face well before we can recognize her body shape. It?s
how the brain can carry out such a
function at such a young age, especially since we don?t learn to walk and talk until we are over a year old. By the time we are adults, we have the ability to distinguish around 100,000 faces. How can we remember so many faces when many of us find it difficult to 43 such a simple thing as a phone number? The exact process is not yet
fully understood, but research around the world has begun to define the specific areas of the brain and processes 44 for facial recognition. Researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology believe that they have succeeded in 45 a specific
area of the brain called the fusiform face area (FFA), which is used only for facial recognition. This means that recognition of familiar objects such as our clothes or cars, is from 46 in the brain. Researchers also have found 47 thought that we only
that the brain needs to see the whole face for recognition to take place. It had been
needed to see certain facial features. Meanwhile, research at University College London has found that facial recognition is not a single process, but 48 involves three steps. The first step appears to be an analysis of the
physical features of a person?s face, which is similar to how we scan the bar codes of our groceries. In the next step, the brain decides whether the face we are looking at is already known or unknown to us. And finally, the brain furnishes the information we have collected about the person whose face we are looking at. This complex 49 is done in a split second so that we can behave quickly when reacting to certain situations. (324 words)

Section B Directions: Read the following three passages. Each passage is followed by several questions or unfinished
For each of them there are four choices marked A, B, C and D. Choose the one that fits best
according to the information given in the passage you have just read. A For some people, music is no fun at all. About four percent of the population is what scientists call “amusic.” People who are amusic are born without the ability to recognize or reproduce musical notes (音调). Amusic people often cannot tell the difference between two songs. Amusics can only hear the difference between two notes if they are very far apart on the musical scale. As a result, songs sound like noise to an amusic. Many amusics compare the sound of music to pieces of metal hitting each other. Life can be hard for amusics. Their inability to enjoy music set them apart from others. It can be difficult for other people to identify with their condition. In fact, most people cannot begin to grasp what it feels like to be amusic. Just going to a restaurant or a shopping mall can be uncomfortable or even painful. That is why many amusics intentionally stay away from places where there is music. However, this can result in withdrawal and social isolation. “I used to hate parties,” says Margaret, a seventy-year-old woman who only recently discovered that she was amusic. By studying people like Margaret, scientists are finally learning how to identify this unusual condition. Scientists say that the brains of amusics are different from the brains of people who can appreciate music. The difference is complex, and it doesn?t involve defective hearing. Amusics can understand other nonmusical sounds well. They also have no problems understanding ordinary speech. Scientists compare amusics to people who just can?t see certain colors. Many amusics are happy when their condition is finally diagnosed ( 诊断 ). For years, Margaret felt embarrassed about her problem with music. Now she knows that she is not alone. There is a name for her condition. That makes it easier for her to explain. “When people invite me to a concert, I just say, ?No thanks, I?m amusic,?” says Margaret. “I just wish I had learned to say that when I was seventeen and not seventy.” (335 words)
65. Which of the following is true of amusics? A. Listening to music is far from enjoyable for them. B. They love places where they are likely to hear music. C. They can easily tell two different songs apart. D. Their situation is well understood by musicians. 66. According to paragraph 3, a person with “defective hearing” is probably one who __________. A. dislikes listening to speeches B. can hear anything nonmusical
C. has a hearing problem
D. lacks a complex hearing system
67. In the last paragraph, Margaret expressed her wish that __________. A. her problem with music had been diagnosed earlier B. she were seventeen years old rather than seventy C. her problem could be easily explained D. she were able to meet other amusics 68. What is the passage mainly concerned with? A. Amusics? strange behaviours. C. Musical talent and brain structure. B. Some people?s inability to enjoy music. D. Identification and treatment of amusics.

C A team of engineers at Harvard University has been inspired by Nature to create the first robotic fly. The mechanical fly has become a platform for a series of new high-tech integrated systems. Designed to do what a fly does naturally, the tiny machine is the size of a fat housefly. Its mini wings allow it to stay in the air and perform controlled flight tasks. “It?s extremely important for us to think about this as a whole system and not just the sum of a bunch of individual components (元件),” said Robert Wood, the Harvard engineering professor who has been working on the robotic fly project for over a decade. A few years ago, his team got the go-ahead to start piecing together the components. “The added difficulty with a project like this is that actually none of those components are off the shelf and so we have to develop them all on our own,” he said. They engineered a series of systems to start and drive the robotic fly. “The seemingly simple system which just moves the wings has a number of interdependencies on the individual components, each of which individually has to perform well, but then has to be matched well to everything it?s connected to,” said Wood. The flight device
was built into a set of power, computation, sensing and control systems. Wood says the success of the project proves that the flying robot with these tiny components can be built and manufactured. While this first robotic flyer is linked to a small, off-board power source, the goal is eventually to equip it with a built-in power source, so that it might someday perform data-gathering work at rescue sites, in farmers? fields or on the battlefield. “Basically it should be able to take off, land and fly around,” he said. Wood says the design offers a new way to study flight mechanics and control at insect-scale. Yet, the power, sensing and computation technologies on board could have much broader applications. “You can start thinking about using them to answer open scientific questions, you know, to study biology in ways that would be difficult with the animals, but using these robots instead,” he said. “So there are a lot of technologies and open interesting scientific questions that are really what drives us on a day to day basis.” (392 words) 72. The difficulty the team of engineers met with while making the robotic fly was that __________. A. they had no model in their mind C. they had no ready-made components B. they did not have sufficient time D. they could not assemble the components
73. It can be inferred from paragraphs 3 and 4 that the robotic fly __________. A. consists of a flight device and a control system B. can just fly in limited areas at the present time C. can collect information from many sources D. has been put into wide application 74. Which of the following can be learned from the passage? A. The robotic flyer is designed to learn about insects. B. Animals are not allowed in biological experiments. C. There used to be few ways to study how insects fly. D. Wood?s design can replace animals in some experiments. 75. Which of the following might be the best title of the passage? A. Father of Robotic Fly C. Robotic Fly Imitates Real Life Insect B. Inspiration from Engineering Science D. Harvard Breaks Through in Insect Study
Section C Directions: Read the following text and choose the most suitable heading from A—F for each paragraph. There is one extra heading which you do not need. A. Healthy way of life giving way to overuse of medicine 10 B. Different findings as to taking additional vitamin
76. The use of health supplements such as multivitamin tablets has increased greatly in the western world. People take these supplements because advertising suggests that they prevent a range of medical conditions from developing. However, there is concern that people are consuming worryingly high doses of these supplements and the European Union (EU) has issued a directive that will ban the sale of a wide range of them. This EU directive should be supported. 77. Research suggests that people who take Vitamin C supplements of over 5000 milligrams a day are more likely to develop cancer. This shows how much damage these health supplements do to people?s health. A spokesman for the health supplement industry has argued that other research shows that Vitamin C supplements help prevent heart disease, but we can dismiss this evidence as it is from a biased source. 78. Science fiction of the 1960s and 1970s predicted that pills would replace meals as the way in which people would get the fuel they needed. This, it was argued, would mean a more efficient use of time as people wouldn?t have to waste it preparing or eating meals. The EU directive would help prevent this nightmare of pills replacing food becoming a reality. 79. Peop0le already take too many pills instead of adopting a healthier lifestyle. For example, the consumption of painkillers in Britain in 1998 was 21 tablets per year for every man, woman and child in the country. People do not need all these pills. 80. Some might argue that the EU directive denies people?s right to freedom of choice. However, there are many legal examples for such intervention when it is in the individual?s best interests. We now make people wear seatbelts rather than allowing them to choose to do so. Opposing the EU directive would mean beneficial measures like this would be threatened.
Section D Directions: Read the passage carefully. Then answer the questions or complete the statements in the fewest possible words.
A study of more than five million books, both fiction and non-fiction, has found a marked decline in the use of emotional words over time. The researchers form the University of Bristol used Google Ngram Viewer, a facility for finding the frequency of terms in scanned books, to search for more than 600 particular words identified as representing anger, dislike, fear, joy, sadness and surprise. They found that almost all of the categories (类别) showed a drop in these “mood words” over time. Only in the category of fear was there an increase in usage. “It is a steady and continuous decrease,” said Dr Alberto Acerbi. He assumed that the result might be explained by a change in the position occupied by literature, in a crowded media landscape. “One thing could be that in parallel to books the 20th century saw the start of other media. Maybe these media—movies, radio, drama—had more emotional content than books.” Although both joy and sadness followed the general downwards trend, the research, published in the journal PLOS One, found that they also exhibited another interesting behaviour：the ratio (比率) between the two varied greatly, apparently mirroring historical events. During the Roaring Twenties the joy-to-sadness ratio reached a peak that would not occur again until before the recent financial crash. But the ratio plunged at the height of the Second World War. Nevertheless, the researchers held a reserved opinion about their claim that their result reflected wider social trends. In the paper, they even argue that the reverse could be true. “It has been suggested, for example, that it was the suppression (压抑) of desire in ordinary Elizabethan English life that increased demand for writing ?filled with romance and sex?… perhaps,” they conclude, “songs and books may not reflect the real population any more than catwalk models reflect the average body.”
(Note：Answer the questions or complete the statements in NO MORE THAN TEN WORDS.) 81. A study of more than five million books indicated a decline in “mood words” over time except _______________. 82. According to Dr Alberto Acerbi, one reason for the drop of “mood words” in books may be that _______________. 83. What were the two periods when the joy-to-sadness ratio was at its highest?
84. While the researchers found some changes in the use of “mood words” in books, they were not sure that _______________.

II. Guided Writing Possible version 1
Dear Sir or Madam: I have heard from the newspaper that you, the Shanghai Museum, are planning to organize a famous painting exhibition. And you are now collecting suggestions about whether to hold it in your museum or the art gallery. I am now writing to express my opinion that the exhibition should be held in the museum. My reasons are as follows. In terms of convenience, the museum has more advantages over the gallery. First, it is located in the People?s Square, which is the center of the city. So people can enjoy convenient transportation such as the subway line 1, 2 and 8, which are available to people from nearly every district. It saves the visitors a lot of time and trouble of traffic jam. Another advantage is that it is easy to be found by those from other provinces around the country. After all the Shanghai Museum is a landmark of our city familiar to nearly every Chinese. With regard to the professional function, though it seems natural that an art exhibition be set in the gallery, in a more general sense, I think the museum has more advanced facilities to make the exhibition successful and to preserve the paintings well. As we know, the museum has successfully held many national and international exhibitions and its advertising and organizing experience is of no match; also its staff is qualified and professional. To sum up, I am sure the show will be fantastic if it is held in Shanghai Museum. (248 words)
Possible version 2 To whom it may concern： I?ve learned that an art exhibition is to be held and that you?re collecting suggestions on its location. I?m writing this letter to share with you my opinions. In my opinion, it is more advisable to hold the art exhibition in Shanghai Museum than in community libraries. My reasons are as follows. On one hand, it is more convenient for people to get to Shanghai Museum which is located in the center of the city. And the museum is much more spacious than community libraries, which provides visitors with a more
comfortable environment for appreciating art. On the other hand, as a well-known museum, Shanghai Museum is more professional and experienced in holding art exhibitions. Its professional security guards and advanced facilities can better protect those famous paintings from being damaged or stolen. Therefore, I suggest the exhibition be held in the museum.

Questions 14 through 16 are based on the following passage. Job interviews can generally be divided into three types. The first is what I would call the traditional interview. This is usually just a series of standard questions about qualifications, work experience and expectations. So what you have here is basically a list of quite direct questions, like what duties did you have in your previous job. This is still the model for a lot of interviews today. In my view it?s not the best to select staff. Then there is the case interview. Here the interviewer presents a problem and a series of questions to find out how the candidate would approach the problem. It might go something like this, ?A company wants to hire more graduates without spending more than its current budget. What would you advise them to do??This can be particularly challenging, for you need to analyze the problem and solve it. The third type is known as the behavioral interview. The questions are usually designed to find out about how the candidates handle tricky situations in the past. A typical question might be ?Can you give me an example of a situation where you had to follow orders that you didn?t agree with?? This opens up a lot of information and the interviewer gets to see more of the candidate.

What does the speaker mainly talk about? 14.【答案】 B. 【解析】 问题： 传统型面试经常会问什么类型的问题？A. 经济类问题——短文未提及。 B. 常规性问题—— 正确答案。This is usually just a series of standard questions…标准问题实质上就是常规性问题，答案是对原 文的同义转换。C. 学术性问题——短文未提及。D. 具有挑战性的问题——短文提及，但与问题无关。这 是 case interview 所问问题的特点。 15.【答案】 C. 【解析】 问题： 案例面试关注应试者的哪些方面？A. 工作经验——短文提及， 但与问题无关。 这是 traditional interview 关注的问题。B. 教育资历——短文提及，但与问题无关。这是 traditional interview 关注的问题。 C. 解决问题的能力——正确答案。…a series of questions to find out how the candidate would approach the problem.案例面试的目的就是考查求职者解决问题的能力。D. 收集信息的能力——短文未提及。 16.【答案】 A. 【解析】问题：说话人主要谈论的是什么？A. 不同类型面试的特征——正确答案。短文开头就点明了主 旨， Job interviews can generally be divided into three types.B. 问面试问题的技巧——短文未提及。 C. 三种面 试模式的变化——短文未提及。D. 对不同面试的建议——短文未提及。 Section C Directions: In section C, you will hear two longer conversations.

【解析】本题考查让步状语从句的使用。让步状语从句引导词只能为“whatever ”“however”，并且从句中缺 少宾语，故应选择名词性的 difficulty。 31. 【答案】D 【解析】本题考查非谓语动词。worried 为形容词，在此处作 leave the room 的伴随状语。 32. 【答案】B 【解析】本题考查非谓语动词的使用，此处也可将 have an opportunity to do sth 看作固定搭配，表示有机会 做某事。 33. 【答案】B 【解析】本题考查宾语从句的引导词用法。此处 have no idea=don?t know，根据语境推断出“我不知道为什 么电话坏了”，故选 why。 34. 【答案】C 【解析】本题考查动词 risk 的使用。risk doing sth 表示冒险做某事或拿…做赌注。 35. 【答案】A 【解析】本题考查非谓语的运用。由语境推知，email 与 ask for her credit card account number 是主动关系， 因此用现在分词。此处 an email asking for her credit card account number = an e-mail which asks for her credit card account number。 36. 【答案】D 【解析】本题考查状语从句的引导词意思。由选项可知此处为状语从句，根据从句 I am sitting 得知是表示 方位的，故用 where。 37. 【答案】D 【解析】本题考查并列复合句的运用。由 and 可得知为并列句，前半句祈使句+and+后半句将来时（情态 词）表示 “（如果…的话，…就会…）”。 38. 【答案】A 【解析】本题考查定语从句。先行词为物：the living and nonliving things, 并且从句中缺少主语，因此只能 用指物的引导词 that。 39. 【答案】A 【解析】本题考查倒装句。介词词组前置，句子倒装。主语为 the lack of natural resources，根据主谓一致 原则，选择 is。正常语序为：The lack of resources is among the crises that face humans. 40. 【答案】B 【解析】本题考查名词性从句。介词 in 后应接名词性从句。由于从句中缺少 wear 的宾语，因此选择既能 引导从句，又能做名词性成分的 what。 该说明文详细阐释了人类大脑是如何一步步进行人脸识别的。
Section B 41. 【答案】J 【解析】composition，名词，意为“结构，组成”，这里表示“认出母亲的脸部构成”。 42. 【答案】H 【解析】fascinating，形容词，意为“有趣的，迷人的”，此处为句型 “It?s fascinating/interesting/exciting that/how…”,表示…是如此有趣。 43. 【答案】B 【解析】 recall， 动词， 意为“回忆， 回想”， 此处根据常用搭配 find it difficult to do sth 得出应选择动词， recall such a simple thing as a phone number 表示“回想出简单的电话号码”。 44. 【答案】E 【解析】 necessary， 形容词， “必要的”， 此处 necessary for facial recognition 作后置定语修饰 the specific areas， 表示“识别人脸必要的区域”。 45. 【答案】F 【解析】locate，动词，“定位”。此处有搭配 succeed in sth/doing sth，故要选择动名词形式。这里意为“成 功定位到一个脑部具体区域 FFA”。 46. 【答案】I 【解析】elsewhere，副词，“其他地方”。由上文推断出既然人脸识别是一个专门的区域进行处理，那么此 处“对其它物体的识别”自然是大脑中“其它地方”了。 47. 【答案】D 【解析】previously，副词，“先前的”。根据上文推断得出人脸识别需要看到整张脸，因此此处的想法“我 们只需要看一些脸部特征”是“先前的”。 48. 【答案】G 【解析】instead，副词，“代替，而不是”。此处根据两句话的意思推断出是转折替代关系，因此选 instead。 49. 【答案】C 【解析】processing，名词，“处理，进程”。根据语法推断出此处填名词，由上下文意思得出用 processing， 表示“这一复杂的处理过程在瞬间完成”。 III. Reading Comprehension Section A 50.【答案】 C 【解析】根据上下文可以判断出，此文章是针对经济全球化的利弊而进行的讨论，那第一段所抛出的问题 必然是：全球化是否对有利于任何国家？因此选项中 good 为正确答案。 51. 【答案】B
【解析】根据上下文判断，经济全球化给发展中国家带来的影响最准确的应该描述为 reduce poverty，而非 population, crime 和 conflict。 52. 【答案】 A 【解析】发展中国家财富的增加(increased wealth)在一定程度上促进了教育水平的提高(improved education) 和人口寿命的延长(longer life)，所以答案为 A/contributing to: 有助于。 53. 【答案】 D 【解析】在 52 题中已经提到，世界银行(World Bank )认为经济全球化帮助发展中国家降低贫困，那必然带 来收入的提高，所以正确答案为 D/increase。 54. 【答案】 C 【解析】读完第三段后不难发现，本段的主要观点是提倡发展中国家参与经济全球化过程，所以这里答案 为 C/advocate。 55. 【答案】B 【解析】第三段中第一句提到，发展中国家的小买卖(small and home-based businesses)将会受益于经济全球 化所带来的机遇，巴西(Brazil)农产品销售市场的的扩大就是其中的例子之一，所以这里的转折词为 B/ For instance。 56. 【答案】C 【解析】受经济全球化影响，巴西的农产品可以在全世界范围内(worldwide)销售，那与此对应，原来农产 品的销售范围应为为国内或者是当地(local open-air market)，故此题答案为 C/local。 57. 【答案】 D 【解析】 第四段中， 评论家认为经济全球化会扩大贫富差距， 因此对其持反对态度。 扩大贫富差距为 widen the gap between…，因此答案为 D/widening 58. 【答案】B 【解析】此处考察“得益于…”的另外一种说法：profit from… 59. 【答案】 A 【解析】评论家在发表经济全球化会扩大贫富差距后，又发表另外一个观点 “they maintain…”，这两个观 点之间是递进的关系，故答案为 A/Furthermore。 60. 【答案】 C 【解析】发展中国家受益于经济全球化集中体现在能将产品销售到国外的市场，即出口到国外。所以本题 答案为 C/export。 61. 【答案】B 【解析】全球化的市场所带来的竞争也可以导致一些国家最终没有生意做或者说一些生产商的破产。故此 选项为 B/ pot them out of business。
62. 【答案】A 【解析】发展中国家小规模生产的商品一旦被大规模生产，这些国家就会逐渐落后并被淘汰。not keep up 意为落后，所以四个选项中 A 表达意思最准确。 63. 【答案】D 【解析】经济全球化发展是大趋势，不可逆转的，故答案为 D/ no turning back。 64. 【答案】 D 【解析】在讨论了不同人对经济全球化所持的观点后，得出结论，目前面临的最大挑战是如何让经济全球 化为所有人的利益服务。所以答案为 D/ challenge。 Section B A篇 这是一篇讨论音乐听觉障碍的说明文。主要围绕音乐听觉障碍人士（amusic）这个概念，详细介绍了音乐 听觉障碍对其生活造成的影响，以及产生这种听觉障碍的原因。 文章首段引出了音乐听觉障碍人士（amusic）的定义——天生无法辨识和重现音调的人（…are born without the ability to recognize or reproduce musical notes）。第二段详细介绍了音乐听觉障碍对 amusic 的生活造成 了诸多不便：疏远人群、无法进入放音乐的餐馆或购物场所、无法参加派对等等。第三段介绍了音乐听觉 障碍的产生原因——大脑构造与能欣赏音乐的人不同。末段介绍医生对音乐听觉障碍这一症状的明确诊断， 给 amusic 人群带来了福音。 65. 【答案】 A. Listening to music is far from enjoyable for them. 【解析】 细节信息题。 由关键词 amusics 定位至文章首段对于 amusic 的定义。 作者由“For some people, music is no fun at all.”一句，引出对有音乐听觉障碍人群（amusic）的介绍，即表明 amusic 不能享受音乐带来的 乐趣。far from 远非…；远离…，far from enjoyable 即一点都感受不到乐趣。因此，正确答案为 A。 66. 【答案】C. has a hearing problem 【解析】语意理解题。由“defective hearing”定位至第三段，它的含义需要分析上下文句意。该句子说明了 音乐听觉障碍产生的原因是大脑的差异。该词组所在的部分与前句“The difference is complex”并列，“it”指 前文的“difference”，强调大脑差异的复杂程度。紧接着后半句又提到音乐听觉障碍人士同样能听到非音乐 类的声音。整体而言，即意为大脑的差异很复杂，并且这种复杂并不属于一种“defective hearing”，因为音 乐听觉障碍人士同样能理解非音乐类的声音。将各选项的含义带入原文，可知正确答案为 A“听觉问题”， 即 amusics 并没有听觉问题，他们也能理解音乐以外的声音。 67. 【答案】A. her problem with music had been diagnosed earlier 【解析】细节信息题。由题干信息定位至最后一段最后一句话。由“I just wish I had learned to say that when I was seventeen and not seventy.”可知 Margaret 希望在 17 岁就能得知自己属于 amusic，而不是 70 岁。即她希 望自己的问题更早得被诊断出来，正确答案为 A。
68. 【答案】B. Some people?s inability to enjoy music. 【解析】主旨大意题。本题考查考生对整篇文章主旨大意的理解与概括。文章首段引出了音乐听觉障碍人 士（Amusic）的定义。第二段详细介绍了音乐听觉障碍对 amusic 的生活造成的诸多不便。紧接着第三段 揭示了 amusic 的产生原因——大脑差异。 最后一段介绍音乐听觉障碍这一症状的诊断能带来的益处。 由此 可见，本文主要讨论了一些人无法享受音乐的乐趣，选项 B 正确。 B篇 这是一页 Amana 公司的产品保修说明。 具体产品是家用洗衣机自动烘干机 （Home Laundry Automatic Dryer） 。 69. 【答案】 D. used in the U.S.A. 【解析】细节信息题。由题干信息定位至第二个小标题下。由第二句话“Applied only to products used within the United States”可知在美国境内，该产品享有保修服务。因此，正确答案为 D。 70. 【答案】 B. a servicer?s overtime work. 【解析】 细节信息题。 由题干信息定位至第四个小标题下。 由第五句话“Pay for extra service costs…if servicer is requested to perform service outside servicer's normal business hours.”可知如果让服务人员在工作时间以外 提供服务，消费者需要额外支付服务费用。因此，正确答案为 B。 71. 【答案】 C. A faulty cabinet due to rust can be replaced free in the second year. 【解析】细节信息题。 由第一个小标题下面第一句话“FIRST TWO YEARS Amana will repair or replace any faulty part free of charge” 可知在前两年可以免费保修任意损坏的部件，无论损坏是不是生锈造成的。所以 C 选项正确。 C篇 这是一篇讨论微型飞行装置的说明文。首段开门见山，介绍了哈佛大学的工程师们受到了《自然》杂志的 启发，决定自行研究机器苍蝇（robotic fly）——一种微型飞行设备。第二段说明了制造这种飞行设备的实 际困难：所需的构成原件没有现成的，需要自行开发。第三段主要介绍了该飞行设备的构成。第四、五两 段介绍了该飞行装置技术成熟后能给我们带来生活上、科研上的详细用途。 72. 【答案】 C. they had no ready-made components 【解析】 细节信息题。 由关键词 difficulty 定位至第二段最后一句话“The added difficulty with a project like this is that actually none of those components are off shelf and so we have to develop them all on our own.”意为这个 项目的困难实际上在于所需的元件都没有现成的， 需要我们自己开发。 on the shelf （现货供应） 与 ready-made （现成的）同义。因此，正确答案为 C。 73. 【答案】 B. can just fly in limited areas at the present times 【解析】推理引申题。根据题干信息，定位至文章第 3、4 段。第三段主要介绍了飞行装置的构成，并由 此引出第四段首句详细介绍飞行装置的外置电源（linked to a small, off-board power source），指出最终目 的是实现内置电源的放置（equip it with a built-in power），是之有能力在更多场合自行完成数据收集的任
务（data-gathering work），完成起飞、着陆、到处飞行的动作。由此可见，目前该飞行装置只能在有限的 地区内飞行，所以 B 选项正确。 74. 【答案】 D. Wood?s design can replace animals in some experiments. 【解析】推理引申题。定位至最后一段第三句话“…to study biology in ways that would be difficult with the animals, but using these robots instead.”意为当用动物这一途径研究生物问题比较困难时， 我们可以用这些机 器人取代动物的位置。因此，正确答案为 D。 75. 【答案】C. Robotic Fly Imitates Real Life Insect 【解析】主旨大意题。 该题要求选定文章的标题，故需归纳文章的主旨大意。纵观全文，首段开门见山，介绍了哈佛大学的工程 师们决定自行研究机器苍蝇（robotic fly）。第二段说明了制造这种飞行设备的实际困难：所需的构成原件 没有现成的，需要自行开发。第三段主要介绍了该飞行设备的构成。第四、五两段介绍了该飞行装置在能 运用至多种场合， 还能在科研中代替动物。 可见本文通篇都在围绕机器苍蝇 （robotic fly） 进行介绍。 因此， 正确答案为 C。 Section C 这是一篇介绍欧盟颁布指令禁止过量服用补品药剂的议论文，并且表达了作者对这样一种指令的支持态度。 76. 【答案】C 【解析】第一段交代了人们盲目服用滋补药剂（例如维他命片）的背景，转折介绍了出于对人们过量服药 的担忧， 欧盟颁布了禁止大面积贩售健康补品的指令。 因此， 正确答案为 C. EU's response to overuse of health products (欧盟对滥用补品的应对措施)。 77. 【答案】B 【解析】第二段通过举例、正反对比等手法，论证了过量服用维生素 C 会造成反面效果，对健康造成巨大 的损伤。因此，正确答案为 B. Different findings as to taking additional vitamin (服用多余维生素会导致不同 的后果)。 78. 【答案】F 【解析】第三段中讲到 1960 年代和 1970 年代的科幻小说预言了人们用药片代替膳食的场景，并表示欧盟 的新指令避免了这种情况的发生。因此，正确答案为 F. EU directive against prediction in novels (欧盟的指令 避免了小说中预言的场景)。 79. 【答案】A 【解析】第四段通过举例论证，突出了人们宁愿多吃药片也不注重健康生活的现实情况，强调了作者对过 多服用药片的反对态度。因此，正确答案为 A. Healthy way of life giving way to overuse of medicine (健康的 生活方式让步于药物滥用)。 Section D
80. 【答案】 E 【解析】第五段通过举例论证，强调欧盟指令对人们是有益的，所以其强制性是合理的。因此，正确答案 为 E. EU directive for the benefit of individuals (欧盟的指令是对人们有益的)。 这是一篇关于文学作品中词汇用量研究的议论文。开篇首段即提出一个研究结论：在各种类型的书籍中， 表达情感的词汇用量在下降。第二段对上文进行补充，强调单单表达恐惧的词汇用量呈上升趋势。紧接着 第三段中给出了造成这种情绪词汇下降的原因——新媒体（电影、广播、戏剧）的崛起。第四、五、六段 进一步探讨了新话题：表示快乐的词汇用量与表示悲伤的词汇用量这两者的比率，能间接反映出历史事件 和历史趋势。 【试题评析】 81. in the category of fear 【解析】细节题。首先根据题干关键词 A study of more than, decline, “mood words”定位至第一段第一句与 第二段首句。接着题干中的 except 一词表示转折，表示与先前描述不符的情况，顺势与第二段末句内容 “Only in the category of fear was there an increase in usage.”相对应，表明除了 in the category of fear，其余的 情况情感用词都在下降。所以，正确答案填 in the category of fear。 82. the literary position has changed in a crowded media landscape/ other media—movies, radio, drama—had more emotional content 【解析】细节题。该题目要求考生找出感情用词下降现象的产生原因，而第三段主要内容都是在解释该现 象的产生原因。再根据题干人名 Dr Alberto Acerbi 定位至第三段第二句。explained by 后即为所填内容，整 合后答案可为“the literary position has changed in a crowded media landscape”。 同时也可定位至第三段最后一 句， 表明其他类型的媒介如电影、 广播、 戏剧能承载更多的情感内容， 经整合后答案是 “other media—movies, radio, drama—had more emotional content”。 83. During the Roaring Twenties and before the recent financial crash. 【解析】细节题。有题干关键词 “joy-to-sadness ratio” 定位至第五段首句，意为在“During the Roaring Twenties”比率达至顶峰，这种情形直到 “before the recent financial crash”才又一次出现。所以 “reached a peak”前面的主语与“until”后的内容即为所要求填写的内容， 整合后答案是 “During the Roaring Twenties and before the recent financial crash.”。 84. their research result reflected wider social trends/ songs and books reflected the real population 【解析】 细节题。 题干表明研究人员态度有一种转折， 由此定位至第五段末句。 其中 “held a reserved opinion” 与题干中 “were not sure”相对应，则答案即可完善为“their research result reflected wider social trends”。同时 因为文章第六段是对第五段观点的具体展开说明，所以亦可定位至第六段最后一句，意为研究者不能确定 歌曲和书籍是否反映出了真实人口数，即答案也可以是 “songs and books reflected the real population”。 第 II 卷
