A 92-year-old man walks ten kilometres across a land that is flat and dry. He is carrying a plastic bottle and 37 water. He finds a pool of muddy water reach down into the earth and he fills his jug. Then he takes the long walk back home and uses this 38 water for drinking, cooking and washing. This has become the daily life for millions of people in southwest China. The people in this area are suffering from a 39 water shortage caused by drought(干旱). Almost 25 million people are affected by the drought. Most of them are farmers who live in rural areas.

B.Choose the words or expressions and complete the passage.（选择最恰当的选项完成短文)： （共 6 分）
Everybody is afraid of quicksand. In the films,
fall into quicksand. They are pulled down and down.
60 ! No one sees them again!
Can it really pull things down? No, it can’t.
Quicksand cannot pull things into it. Quicksand is
loose(松的) and with a lot of water. The water makes
quicksand. It is 61 the sand on the beach. A
can walk on the beach but he cannot walk on quicksand. It is too loose.
Falling into quicksand does not hurt. It is 62 like falling into water! Your body
will go down but then it will come up. People can 63 in quicksand. However, they must
64 in the sand. That would make them go down. They should move
slowly when they are in quicksand.
There is quicksand in many places. We can find it near the mouths of large rivers. The
mouth of the river is 65 the river meets the ocean or the sea. There is quicksand
on land too. In some places the water stays on the land. It does not drain (排放) or dry
up. If there is sand around, the sand gets very wet. Then it becomes quicksand.

C. approach D. come up
B. the same as

C. Read the passage and fill in the blanks with proper words.（在短文的空格内填入适当的
词，使其内容通顺，每空格限填一词，首字母已给)：（共7分） The sports utility vehicle (SUV 多用途车辆) was invented in the early 1990s. It quickly
became very popular in the United States. There are several r 66 for this. It is larger than most of cars. It can carry lots of people, bicycles, toys, dogs and other things. This makes it popular with families. It also has four doors and a big back door, so getting in or out is e 67 . Since an SUV is taller than most cars, the driver can see above other cars and have a better sight of the road. With a lot more p 68 , an SUV can go faster than most cars. It can also go on very rough roads where other cars cannot go.
The SUV is popular with many people, but other people do not like these cars. First,
they are larger than most other cars. This means that drivers of other cars may not be able
w 69 . Also, SUVs are very heavy. If an SUV gets into an accident with a small car,
the small car may be in serious trouble. A__70___ problem with SUVs is that they are very
expensive. They are expensive to buy --- about 50 percent more expensive than an average
small car. They are also expensive to use, since they use a lot more gasoline(汽油) than
There are two ways to solve these problems. One way is to change the way we think about
them. Now they are sold as large cars. In the future, maybe they should be sold as trucks.
Then people with just a car license(执照) could not d 71 them. They would have to get
a truck license. These licenses are more expensive and difficult to get, so p 72 fewer
people would buy SUVs. The other way to solve SUV problems is to make them differently.
Some people think that car companies should make big SUVs smaller and less dangerous. They
should also make SUVs with less powerful engines. Then they would not use so much gasoline.

D. Listen to the passage and complete the following sentences (听短文，完成下列内容，每 空格限填一词): (共 10 分) March 16th is World Sleep Day. This year’s topic (标语) is “Breathe Easily, Sleep
Well”. Its aim is to celebrate the advantages of good and healthy sleep. Sleep is like food for the brain. Enough sleep helps the body and brain grow and develop.
According to the National Sleep Foundation in the US, adults need seven to nine hours of sleep every night. For students aged 10 to17, a healthy amount is about eight to nine hours per night.
But many students don’t get enough sleep because of early school times and heavy homework. About 80 percent of middle school students don’t get enough sleep, the China Youth and Children Research Center reported. For some students, they want to sleep early, but they keep worrying about their schoolwork and can’t fall asleep quickly. For others, they may even have insomnia which might keep them awake all night.
These sleeping problems greatly affect people’s lives. Experts have shown that lack of sleep for teenagers leads to poor grades. Students without enough sleep cannot pay attention in class or do well in sports. Also, the lack of sleep may make them depressed. Luckily, with good sleep habits, it is easier to fall asleep. Some of these good habits include avoiding drinks that make people excited late in the day, going to sleep at the same time each night, and sleeping in a comfortable place that is dark, quiet, and neither too warm nor too cold.
