第三部分 阅读理解 （共 20 小题，每小题 2 分；满分 40 分） 读下列短文，从每题所给的 ABCD 四个选项中，选出最佳选项。 A Global financial big dogs are no match for China's "Da Ma", or housewives, who have crowded into gold stores across China, buying up 300 tons of gold over the past two weeks. No wonder gold prices have steadied after taking a dive. During the May Day holiday, gold stores were crowded with mostly female customers. Most of them are middle-aged "Chinese housewives". This group of buyers has risen to fame recently. They are big spenders and are desperate to get their hands on a bargain. "I bought some gold jewellery and kept them as a gift for my son when he gets married," said a buyer from Shanghai. The gold business is skyrocketing. "Our sales are growing by the day. Yesterday we sold more than ten million yuan of gold products," a gold store salesperson said. The gold rush in China started about two weeks ago thanks to a decline in global gold prices. Media reports suggest that Chinese housewives have spent about 100 billion yuan, or about 16 billion US dollars, purchasing 300 tons of gold since mid-April. That has helped support gold prices. "Gold prices depressed since the middle of last month but have risen gradually. That is mainly due to the strong demand from Asian markets," said foreign trader Zhang Chen from Industrial & Commercial Bank of China. "Some people even joked that Chinese housewives have beaten Wall Street analysts." For Chinese people, with limited investment options, the only thing better than buying gold is buying gold at discount prices. 56. What does the author indicate in the first sentence of the 1st paragraph? A. The global big dogs can’t match with Chinese housewives. B. Chinese housewives spend a great deal of money on gold . C. China's "Da Ma" help a lot to support the global economic crisis D. Chinese housewives have a better consumption idea than global financial big dogs . 57. The whole passage mainly developed_______ ? A. by comparison B. by contrast C. by quotation D. by time order

Ideas or inventions that change society or, at least, make life easier for somebody? Perhaps we all do sometimes, but we don’t often make the idea a reality. Recently, in Britain, there was a competition called British Designers for Tomorrow. The competition encourages young people to carry out their bright ideas. There were two groups in the contest: Group One was for schoolchildren under 16; Group Two was for schoolchildren over 16, and there were eleven prize-winners altogether. Neil Hunt, one of the prize-winners, was called “Sunshine Superman”. It’s important when people study the weather to be able to record sunshine accurately. We need to know how many hours of sunshine we have and how strong it is. Most sunshine recorders only record direct sunlight. Neil’s is more accurate and this is very important for research into the way of using solar power. You can do so much with animated cartoon. Look at Simon West’s idea for animated road signs. He uses pictures which appear to move as you go nearer to or farther from them. This isn’t a new idea. But it is new to use these pictures on road signs. “We found that people were more likely to see moving signs,” said Simon. So now, you can really see rocks falling, trains moving, horses running or a car falling over the edge of a cliff. Quite a warning! The ideas in the competition were so inventive that we are surprised that British industry doesn’t ask more schoolchildren for suggestions. Perhaps this will be the start of “pupil power!” 64. Neil Hunt’s design would finally lead to the improvement of the way of . A. recording direct sunshine B. knowing how strong sunlight is C. using the energy of the sun D. recording the hours of sunshine 65. The organizers of the competition hoped the schoolchildren would ________. . A. become good designers for future Britain B. win as many prizes as they could C. design something useful for the next day D. invent something for immediate use 66. What’s the use of Simon West’s animated road signs? A. To add to the beauty of a city. B. To warn people on the roads of the danger ahead. C. To help make a car trip more exciting. D. To warn people to be careful while working. 67. The writer holds that people seldom _________. . A. make their life easier B. turn their bright ideas into reality

D The word “sport” first meant something that people did in their free time. Later it often meant hunting wild animals and birds. About a hundred years ago the word was first used for organized games. This is the usual meaning of the word today. People spend a lot of their time playing football, basketball, tennis and many other sports. Such people play because they want to. A few people are paid for the sport they play. These people are called professional sportsmen. They may be sportsmen for only a few years, but during that time the best ones can earn a lot of money. For example, a professional footballer in England earns more than 30,000 dollars a year. The stars earn a lot more. International golf and tennis champions can make more than 500,000 dollars a year. Of course, only a few sportsmen can earn as much money as that. 68. From the passage we can learn that_______.

E Among the soldiers of King Philip there was a poor man who had done some good deeds. He had pleased the king in many ways, and so the king believed in him. One day this soldier was on a ship at sea when a great storm came up. The winds drove the ship upon the rocks, and it was broken. The soldier was thrown upon the shore(岸); and he would have died there if it had not been for the kind care of a farmer who lived nearby. When the soldier was well enough to go home; he thanked the farmer for what he had done, and promised that he would repay him for his kindness. But he did not mean to keep his promise(许诺). He did not tell King Philip about the farmer. He only said that there was a fine farm by the seashore, and that he would like very much to have it for his own. “Who owns the farm now?” asked Philip. “Only a useless farmer, who has never done anything for his country,” said the soldier. “Very well, then,” said Philip “You have served me for a long time, and you shall have your wish. Go and take the farm for yourself.”

These activities can be divided into two types—indoor and outdoor recreational activities. If you can’t go out, there are many indoor recreational activities you can choose. Here are some of them. Reading isn’t only great fun but it also broadens your knowledge. People who love reading can never get bored when they’re alone. You can choose any type of reading such as novels, poetry, newspapers, magazines, etc. So the next time you’re looking for fun things to do indoors, just pick up a book and start reading. If reading tops the list of indoor recreational activities, writing may be the second. After a week’s work, try to sit and write down your diary on weekends, and you’ll be surprised at all the positive（积极的）thoughts you have once you start writing. Dancing is both an art and a great exercise. It makes your body and mind feel relaxed. Dance when you’re happy, sad, or bored. Every time you dance, you’ll enjoy every moment of it. Besides indoor recreational activities, you can also enjoy exciting outdoor recreational activities. For example, if it’s a sunny day with fresh winds, why not go hiking? Carry your

backpack and go hiking, either with your friends or by yourself. Hiking is a wonderful experience and it will help you release your stress and get rid of all your negativeness(消极性). Swimming is also a favorite recreational activity. For people who just hate doing exercise in the gym, regular swimming might be a great way to stay in shape. In short, recreation is all about having beautiful moments in your life, creating memories that you can remember and smile about!
