陕西西安高三英语15-16上学期第一次月考题

第一部分:听力 ()

第二部分:阅读理解 (共2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ABCD中,选出最佳答案,并在答题卡上将该项涂黑。

A

A group of 1309 passengers boarded the MS Balmoral on Sunday, in Southampton, England, on a voyage to retrace(重走) the path of the Titanic. The Titanic was the biggest ship in the world when it sailed on its ill-fated first voyage on April 10, 1912. Of the 2227 passengers and crew aboard, more than1500 died. The ship, which was headed for New York City, carried the rich and famous on its first voyage. It also carried immigrants who were seeking a better life in America.

Relatives of people who sailed on the Titanic, historians, authors and people fascinated by the story of the unsinkable ship were on the Balmoral. They wanted to remember the Titanic and those who died on her first and last voyage.

The Balmoral is following Titanic's original route from Southampton. First, the modern-day cruise liner docked(进港) in the port of Cherbourg, France, where the Titanic had picked up more passengers. On Monday afternoon, the Balmoral stops in Cobh, Ireland, the Titanic's last port of call before sailing to New York.

The Balmoral then sailed the North Atlantic Ocean to the location where Titanic hit an iceberg . On Sunday, April 15, at 220 a. m. --- the time the Titanic went down---passengers and crew held a memorial service. The next two days were spent in Halifax, Canada, where many victims of the sinking are buried. Then, the Balmoral will reach its final destination in New York City, where Titanic was supposed to dock—but never did.

So far, several teams of divers have explored the site. They have recovered some items such as dishes and silverware and put them on public display. And more trips are planned to the wreckage in the future. The Titanic and its passengers and crew have been remembered in books, movies and TV programs. But there's a much more important contribution that Titanic gave us. After she sank, lawmakers and shipbuilders made ships safer. It took a terrible tragedy to make ship travel safer for all.

21We learn from the first paragraph that      .

Aabout 700 passengers of the Titanic survived.

Bthe Titanic sank on its second voyage.

Cless than 2000 passengers boarded the Titanic.

Dall the passengers’ hopes of the Titanic lay in America.

22Which of the following shows the correct route of the Balmoral?

a. Halifax

b. New York City       

c. Cobh

d. Southampton  

e. Cherbourg

Ae-d-a-b-c              Bd-e-c-a-b              

Ce-c-a-b-d              Dd-c-e-a-b

23What might be the most important contribution of the Titanic?

AIts site attracts more exploring teams.                                       

BIt makes the later ships more secure.

CSome of its items are on public di学科网(www.zxxk.com)--国内最大的教育资源门户,提供试卷、教案、课件、论文、素材及各类教学资源下载,还有大量而丰富的教学相关资讯!splay.                                    

DMore trips are planned to its wreckage.

B

We have an amazing 99 friends at the age of 21--more than at any other time in our life, according to a new study. The typical 21-year-old’s social circle nearly hits 100, with 13 “best” friends, 17 “close” friends and 70 acquaintances.

The research undertaken by skin care brand Nivea found our social circle peaks at 21 as we meet people at work while keeping in touch with friends from school and university. But as our working lives take overwe lose contact with some old friends causing the number to drop to around 68 by the time we are 29 years old. Although this decline continues into old ageit slows down slightly 学科网(www.zxxk.com)--国内最大的教育资源门户,提供试卷、教案、课件、论文、素材及各类教学资源下载,还有大量而丰富的教学相关资讯!for people in their学科网(www.zxxk.com)--国内最大的教育资源门户,提供试卷、教案、课件、论文、素材及各类教学资源下载,还有大量而丰富的教学相关资讯! 30s when many of them become first-time parents. It is believed that this is because people form new friendships while on the maternity ward(产科病房)at post­-natal(产后) groups and when taking their toddlers(学步时期的小孩) to nursery.

The Nivea Closeness Report foun学科网(www.zxxk.com)--国内最大的教育资源门户,提供试卷、教案、课件、论文、素材及各类教学资源下载,还有大量而丰富的教学相关资讯!d the balance between our numbers of “best friends”“close friends” and “acquaintances”remains fairly constant throughout our lifetime. The average Briton has 18 close friends and a friendship circlewhen all Facebook and other social networking “friends” are includedof 208 people. The report found that men have more than twice the number of close fri学科网(www.zxxk.com)--国内最大的教育资源门户,提供试卷、教案、课件、论文、素材及各类教学资源下载,还有大量而丰富的教学相关资讯!endswith around 27 compared to women who have just 12. Londoners are also the most sociablewith 39 “close friends”while the Welsh have just 11.

The age of 21 is such a critical junction in life and that’s why we have so many friends then. As we get older we become more selective and have fewer close friends with whom we talk about the things that are really important to us. Perhaps when we are youngerinstead of having one trusted confidante(知己) we share different things with a variety of different people.

Athey think friends are no longer important                                       

Bthey are more selective and cautious

27Why does the number of one’s friends decrease slowly when he is about 30 years old?

ABecause they achieve success in business and get acquainted with more colleagues.

BBecause many parents make friends with people who have similar experiences in bringing up

CBecause they make more friends through Facebook or the Internet.

Today’s museums include plenty of high culture, but you can still find shrines(圣地)to the extraordinary. Here’s a look at five curious museum stops across Canada.

Vancouver Police Museum

The setting, terrible enough, is the old Coroner’s(验尸官)Court and forensics lab, including the morgue(room where dead bodies are kept). Artifacts, from the 1870s on, include badges, uniforms, police equipment, items from criminals, and even preserved organs—all in all an arresting experience.

Vulcan Tourism & Trek Station

Designed to resemble a spacecraft, the Treck Station celebrates Vulcan’s coincidental relationship to Mr. Spock’s planet, Go to a building that features an 800-piece collection of Star Trek memorabilia — including Spock’s ears and floor-to-ceiling space paintings. If you want to know more about it, click here: http//www. Vulcantourism. com

Accordion(手风琴)Museum

Through instruments, photos and recordings, the museum traces the history of the accordion and its influence on Quebec culture. They’ve even acquired Asian instruments that show the use of the free reed— call them ancient ancestors of the accordion—that date back 4000 years.

Chocolate Museum

It’s chocoholic heaven — whole museum featuring displays on how chocolate is made, hands-on exhibits, collections of historic chocolate boxes, and antique candy- making equipment and, of course, lots of chocolate treats ,located in an old candy factory building. Click below to learn all about their hours and admission rates. http:// www. Chocolate museum .ca

D.

Shenzhen’s transport police recently declared a policeman a “star” member of staff, after he continued to serve in his post even after losing his newborn son. After a netizen made that known, internet users were merciless in their criticism, claiming Sun had sacrificed his son for his career and was unqualified to be a father or even a human being. Though Sun’s wife said via her micro blog he was the best husband and father in the world, it didn’t stop the tide of condemnation.

I feel deeply sorry for this man. It’s not that he should have received the award. It’s traditional in China for individuals to make sacrifices for a group or the country, which remains to be questioned. What annoys me is the netizens pouring anger on the father instead of showing sympathy. Why are they so quick to claim the moral high ground and set themselves up as judges? Whether the father accompanied his son until the last moment or not is a personal affair. The treatment of Sun is a case in point—of the “tyranny(专制)of the majority”. And the majority is not always correct or fair.

Micro blogs have been a growing trend in China in the last few years, becoming a channel for ordinary people to express their opinions, which was previously the preserve of elites(精英) and the media. The positive side of this has been praised enough. But we also need to examine the downside: Self-proclaimed(自诩的)online arbiters of what is right and wrong form another type of unfair rule running cruelly over opinions that don’t match their own. Without knowing enough details and without any serious thought, they pronounce their judgment as opinion of the “majority”.

We should question this expression of personal opinion and the commonness of group attacks. What we need is real, independent critical thinking instead of an Internet mob(暴徒).

I have no idea how to change the situation but I do hope it happens.

32What do we know about the policeman referred to ?

AHe was a model policeman but a failure as a father.

BHe cared little about the loss of his newborn son.

CHe was severely under verbal(言语上学科网(www.zxxk.com)--国内最大的教育资源门户,提供试卷、教案、课件、论文、素材及各类教学资源下载,还有大量而丰富的教学相关资讯!的) attack of the netizens.

DHe did not even have his wife’s understanding.

33The writer of the passage probably will agree that       .

Athe policeman quite deserved the honor of the award.

Bindividuals’ sacrifice for a group is undoubtedly a good act.

Cmicro blogs are a preserved channel for elites and the media only.

Dsome netizens claim their unsound judgments as opinion of the majority.

34The underlined word “arbiters” in the third paragraph is closest in meaning to       .

Abloggers              Breferees                Ccriminals               Dprogrammers

35Which of the following can be the best title for the passage?

ATyranny of the majority online goes wild

BPoliceman who lose baby son got awarded

CMicro blogs need tough control

DHow to stay away from Internet mobs

Some Ways to Deal With Hardship and Pain in Life

Regardless of the difficulties you way face, it’s getting back up and moving forward that counts the most when you need to deal with hardship.    36    

Write or talk about how you feel

Keeping my feelings to myself used to make me feel lonely, but when I found someone who actually cared about me, it became natural to share how I felt with him and that contributed to my ability to overcome troublesome situations.  37  Although talking to strangers about your issues may seem crazy, it actually isn’t.

   38  

It is said that running away from your problems will never helpand though that’s partially trueit doesn’t mean that you need to make yourself go so deeply into a situation that you run out of air to breathe and lose the ability to weigh the pros and cons of your choicesThat happens more than we like to admitwhich is why it’s important to separate yourself from a situation long enough to think clearly without having people hanging over your shoulders

Remind yourself that you’re not alone

Regardless of who or what you depend onyou need to remind yourself that you are not alone; you have people who do care  39   Sometimes it’s strangers who may share the same feelings as you doThink about it—you may not know any of these readers personally but they could be in the exact same situation as youso in factno one is truly alone

Accept the results and get back up again

  40   Whether the results of your choices proved to be helpful or not, it’s time for you to accept them and get back upThis time you have a new experience to add to your book of life so the next time something tries to knock you downit won’t be easy because you will be strong and determined to push forwardLife will go ontime will never stand stilland it rests upon you to make the right decision of moving forward

ASeparate yourself from the situation

BTell yourself to accept the hardship.

CFinallyit’s time to accept what has happened

DAll in allremember that life is short

ENot only did I speak to him about how I feltbut I decided to blog about it

FHere are some things I've tried just to help me believe in a brighter future and get over a tough

situation

GEven if it’s just one personthat’s enough to give you reason to remind yourself that you will never

truly be alone
