    I always felt sorry for the people in a wheelchair. Some people, old and weak, cannot 36 by themselves. Others seem perfectly healthy, dressed in business suits. But whenever I saw someone in a wheelchair, I only saw a (n) 37 , not a person.
    Then I fainted at Euro Disney due to low 38 pressure. This was the first time I had ever lost consciousness, and my parents said that I must 39 for a while after First Aid. I agreed to 40 but, as I stepped toward the door, I saw my dad pushing a wheelchair in my direction! 41 the color burn my cheeks, I asked him to 42 that thing right back to where he found it.
    I could not believe this was happening to me. Wheelchairs were 43 for other people but not for me, as my father wheeled me 44 into the main street, people immediately began to treat me 45 .
    Little rids ran in front of me, 46 my father to stop the wheelchair suddenly. 47 set in as I was thrown back and forth. “Stupid kids – they have perfectly good 48 . Why can’t they watch where they are going?” I thought. People stared down at me, 49 in their eyes. Then they would look away, maybe because they thought the 50 they forgot me, the better.
    “I’m just like you!” I wanted to scream. “The only difference is you’ve got legs, 51 I have wheels.”
    People in wheelchairs are not 52 . They see every look and hear each word. Looking out at the faces, I finally understood: I was once just like them. I treated people in wheelchairs 53 the way they did not want to be 54 . I realized it is some of us with two healthy legs who are truly 55 .

    A
    It was not yet eleven o’clock when a boat crossed the river with a single passenger who obtained his transportation at that unusual hour by promising an extra fare. While the youth stood on the landing place searching in his pocket for money, the boatman lifted a lantern, by the aid of which, together with the newly risen moon, he took a very accurate survey of the stranger’s figure. He, was a young man of only 18 years, evidently country bred (乡下长大的), and now, as it seemed, on his first visit to town. He was wearing a rough gray coat, which was in poor shape, but which had seen many winters before this one. The garments under his coat were well constructed of leather, and fitted tightly to a pair of muscular legs; his stocking of blue yarn (纱) must have been the work of a mother or sister, and on his head was a three – cornered hat, which in its better days had perhaps sheltered the grayer head of the youth’s father. In his left hand was a walking stick, and his equipment was completed by a leather bag not so plentifully stocked as to inconvenience the strong shoulders on which it hung. Brown, curly hair, well – shaped features, bright, cheerful eyes were nature’s gift, and worth all that art could have done for his adornment (装饰物). The youth, whose name was Robin, paid the boatman, YC and then walked forward into the town with a light step, as if he had not already traveled more than 30 miles that day. As he walked, he surveyed his surroundings as eagerly as if he were entering London or Madrid, instead of metropolis (大都市) of a New England colony.
    56.What time of year was in this story?
    A.Spring. B.Summer. C.Fall. D.Winter.
    57.The boatman was willing to take Robin across the river because .
    A.he wanted to make extra money
    B.he saw Robin young and rich
    C.he was going to row across the river anyway
    D.he felt sorry for Robin because he looked poor
    58.The stockings that Robin wore were obviously .
    A.well worn B.handmade C.very expensive D.much too big
    59.How did Robin appear when he walked into town?
    A.He was tired.
    B.He seemed very sad.
    C.He was cheerful and excited.
    D.He seemed frightened by his strange surroundings.

    B
    Shyness is the cause of much unhappiness for a great many people. Shy people are anxious and self – conscious; that is, they are over concerned with their own appearance and actions. Worrisome thoughts are constantly occurring in their minds; what kind of impression am I making? Do they like me? Do I sound stupid? Am I wearing unattractive clothes?
    It is obvious that such comfortable feelings must affect people unfavorably. A person’s self – concept is reflected in the way he or she behaves and the way a person themselves has a deep effect on all areas of their lives. Shy people, who have low self – esteem (自尊), are likely to be passive and easily influenced by others. They need faith that they are doing “the right thing”. Shy people are very sensitive to criticism. It makes them feel inferior (自卑). They also find it difficult to be pleased by praises because they believe they are unworthy of praise. A shy person may respond to a praise with a statement like this one: “You’re just saying that to make me feel good, I know it’s not true.” It is clear that, while self – awareness is a healthy quality, overdoing it harmful. Can shyness be completely got rid of, or at least reduced? Fortunately, people can overcome shyness with determination. It is important for people to accept their weaknesses as well as their strengths, for example, not fair for them to label themselves inferior because they have to be realistic. Living on the impossible leads to absence of inferiority. Each one of us has his or her own characteristics. We are interested in our own personal ways. The better we understand ourselves, the easier it becomes to live up to our chances for a rich and fulfilling life.
    60.The first paragraph is mainly about .
    A.the thoughts of shy people B.the cause of shyness
    C.the effect of shyness on people D.the questions in the minds of shy people
    61.According to the writer, self – awareness is .
    A.harmful to people B.a weak point of shy people
    C.the cause of unhappiness D.a good characteristics
    62.What is the shy people’s reaction to praise?
    A.They are pleased by it B.They feel it is not true
    C.They are very sensitive to it D.They feel they are worthy of it
    63.We can learn from the passage that shyness can .
    A.block our chances for a successful life
    B.help us to live up to our full development
    C.enable us to understand ourselves better
    D.have nothing to do with lack of self – esteem

    C
    Once I mentioned the story of a friend getting something made for me to give my daughter as a present, and then not letting me pay her back. Writing about that made me think about the problem of communicating feelings, particularly in cross – cultural situations. Let me explain.
    If I say to a fellow English – speaker, “I know how you feel,” what I am actually saying is that I can imagine myself in the same position, and therefore can imagine how I would feel. But my friend could perfectly correctly reply, “No, you don’t! You can’t.” In truth we can communicate how strongly we feel, but we cannot communicate exactly what we feel.
    But if we come from the same linguistic and cultural background, the match can be close enough.
    Culture and language cannot be separated, and I think that we have the feelings that are recognized in our culture and therefore represented in our language. One might say that we feel the things that our language allows us to express. So when it comes to trying to explain feelings to someone of a different mother tongue, the difficulties are huge.
    I could not explain to my friend how I felt about her not letting me repay her, because Chinese culture, it seems, does not recognize the same feelings on such occasions.
    She could understand the words that I was using, but could not understand what I was trying to say.
    Some time ago, I was going up in the lift, and a colleague with whom I merely have a nodding acquaintance was offering round some sweetmeat. I knew that I really could not eat it, so I refused politely, only to be told that I was making her lost face.
    I have no idea how serious the colleague was being. I sincerely hope that her comment was more of the nature of a standard response in that kind of situation.
    Causing someone to lose face is a serious social mistake. We have to do all we can to learn the types of situation in which it happens, and to try to avoid them. But we can only know about losing face, we can’t feel losing face, as the term is merely a literal translation of Chinese, not one that is native to English.
    64.What does the author intend to express in the second paragraph?
    A.The author’s friend does not understand English.
    B.The author and her friend can communicate feelings with each other.
    C.The author’s friend can’t understand the real meaning of the author.
    D.The author’s friend feels insulted if other people know how she feels.
    65.What does the author mean by saying “… the match can be close enough.”
    A.There can be some competition between them.
    B.They can make a perfect couple.
    C.They cam share similar opinions and thoughts.
    D.They are even in a match.
    66.According to the author, it is to explain feelings to someone of a different language.
    A.very difficult B.a little bit difficult
    C.not difficult at all D.impossible
    67.This passage is focused on .
    A.how to avoid making people lose face
    B.cultural differences between the east and the west
    C.the importance of one’s cultural background
    D.how to be acquainted with Chinese culture

    D
    The way people hold to the belief that a fun – filled, pain free life equals happiness actually reduces their chances of ever gaining real happiness. If fun and pleasure are equal to happiness, then pain must be equal to unhappiness. But in fact, the opposite is true – more often than not things that lead to happiness involve some pain.
    As a result, many people avoid the very source of true happiness. They fear the pain unavoidably brought by such things – marriage, raising children, professional achievements and self – improvement.
    Ask a bachelor why he resists marriage even though he finds dating to be less and less satisfying. If he is honest, he will tell you that he is afraid of making a promise. For a promise is in fact quite painful. The single life is filled with fun, adventure and excitement. Marriage has moments, but they are not its most distinguishing features.
    Couples with babies are lucky to get a whole night’s sleep or three – day vacation. I don’t know parents who would choose the word fun to describe raising children. But couples who decide not to have children never know the joys of watching a child grow up or of playing with a grandchild.
    Understanding and accepting that true happiness has nothing to do with fun is one of the most liberating realizations. It liberates time: now we can devote more hours to activities that truly increase our happiness. It liberates money: buying that expensive mobile phone or those fancy clothes that will do nothing to increase our happiness now seems pointless. And it liberates us from envy: we now understand that all those who are always having so much fun actually may not be happy at all.
    68.What the author is mainly trying to tell us is .
    A.a happy life means life full of fun and without pain
    B.happiness often goes hand in hand with pain
    C.it is important to avoid pain in order to be happy
    D.one must know how to gain happiness
    69. According to the author, the bachelor resists marriage mainly because .
    A.he is unwilling to take on family responsibilities
    B.he fears it will put an end to all his fun and adventure
    C.he believes that dating will be more cheerful
    D.he finds more fun in dating than in marriage
    70.Raising children, in the author’s opinion, is .
    A.a desperate attempt B.a thankless job
    C.a rewarding task D.a pain free life
    71.To understand what true happiness is, one must .
    A.have as much fun as possible during one’s lifetime
    B.make every effort to liberate oneself from time and money
    C.put up with pain under all circumstances
    D.be able to distinguish happiness from fun
