B Since 1936, many female space explorers have followed Russian astronaut Valentina Tereshkova. Let’s look at the
missions（任务） of four important female astronauts to find out what astronauts do in space. In 1983, Sally Ride became the first American women in space. Her team carried out scientific experiments in
5 / 11
space and put two communications satellites in space. Satellites make it possible for us to communicate instantly with each other across the world through TV, radio, and telephones.
In 1984, Kathryn Sullivan became the first American women to walk in space. During her mission, she discovered
important information about the sun’s energy and how it affects the climate in very hot and very cold places on Earth.
She also took photographs of Earth and measured air pollution. In 1992, Mae Jemison became the first African-American in space. During her mission, she did scientific
experiments using the weightless atmosphere. In space, there is no gravity, so everything floats! Dr. Jemison’s
experiments gave important information about the human body to produce better medicines and healthcare.
In 2012, Liu Yang became the first Chinese women in space. She did experiments in space medicine, which look at
how astronauts can survive and stay healthy in space. The conditions in space are very hard on the body and space
medicine helps astronauts work safely.
55. Who collected important information about air pollution?
A. Valentina Tereshkova.
B. Sally Ride.
C. Kathryn Sullivan.
D. Mae Jemison
56. What did Dr. Jemison’s experiments focus on?
A. Human body. C. Climate on earth.
B. Space satellites. D. Energy from the sun.
57. Liu Yang’s mission aimed at ________.
A. providing information about environment
B. protecting astronauts’ health in space
C. improving communication on Earth D. testing the weightless atmosphere 58. Which of the following can be the best title for the passage? A. Great Walking in Space B. Conditions in Space C. Healthcare in Space D. Women in Space

C Worst Game Ever？ E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial is a video game that came out for the Atari 2600 game system in 1982. It was based on a very popular film of the same name. Star programmer Howard Warshaw created it with consultation from the film director Steven Spielberg. It was July 27th, 1982. Howard Warshaw was hot off the success of his most recent game, Raiders of the Lost Ark. He received a call from Atari C.E.O, Ray Kassar. Atari had bought the rights to make a video game version of Spilberg’s
Movie, E.T., which had just been released（发行） in June. Kassar told Warshaw that Spielberg had specifically asked for Warshaw to make the game Warshaw was honored, but there was one huge problem. Atari needed the game finished by September 1st in order to start selling it during the Christmas season.
It had taken Warshaw six months to create Raiders of the Lost Ark. The game he made prior to that took him seven months. He was expected to create E.T. in around five weeks. Warshaw accepted the challenge anyway and production began. Spielberg wanted Warshaw to create a simple maze game similar to Pac-man, but V had a bigger vision. He wanted players to explore different environments in 3D world. Usually companies like Atari have people test games before releasing them, but they decided to skip testing due to time limitations.
The game was a hot holiday item at first. Unfortunately, Atari overestimated how many they would sell. They made 5 million copies and they only sold 1.5 million. Most people who played the game hated it. The graphic（s 画面）were bad.
Game play was awkward. Players got stuck in holes that they couldn’t escape. Some people who stuck with the game
grew to like it, but it wasn’t the mainstream success that Atari had hoped it would be.
Too many copies of the game sat on store shelves. One employee remembers the game being discounted five times, from $49.95 to less than a dollar. A newspaper in New Mexico reported that between 10 and 20 semitrailer truckloads of Atari products were crushed and buried at landfill in Alamogordo. Atari lost over $100 million on E.T.. The game was so
bad that it was said to have affected Atari’s reputation. The video game industry soon fell into a deep depression, with a
profit $3.2 billion in 1983 to just over $100 million in 1985, almost a 97% drop. E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial will long be
remembered as one of the worst games ever made, if not one of the causes of the decline of entire video game industry.
59. What can we learn about Howard Warshaw from the passage?
A. He was ambitious.
B. He was cautious.
7 / 11
C. He was unreliable.
D. He was inexperienced.
60. Why did E.T. end up one worst video game ever?
A. It was produced in a hurry.
B. It was set in a 3D environment.
C. It was released at a wrong time.
D. It was based on a popular movie.
61. According to the passage, the failure of the game E.T. may have____
A. destroyed the reputation of the film E.T.
B. given chances to other companies to rise
C. led to the fall of the video game industry
D. made people lose interest in 3D environment
62. In the passage the author describes Atari’s failure________
A. in a disapproving way B. with a supportive attitude C. with a feeling of pity for the company D. without expressing his/her own opinions
It’s 2010, outside the gate of a school somewhere in the UK. Some teenagers are talking. One says to another,” I’
m tired of jamming after school---it’s really vanilla. Let’s go for a za, OK?” Two adults are walking past. They hear
what the teenagers are saying, but they don’t understand a word. (What the teenagers said was,” I’m tired of hanging
around after school---it’s really boring. Let’s go for a pizza.”) This is nothing new---teenagers always invent new words and phrases. They create words for everyday
things---words that mean good or porents or bad or good-looking, and so on. Look at these different ways of saying good in recent decades:
1960s---groovy (or fab) 1970s---neat
8 / 11
1980s---ace 1990s---wicked 2000s---cool But, of course, the words you use depend on your interests, your friends, the music you listen to and the part of the country you live in. Different groups of teenagers have different likes and dislikes, and so they also have different expressions. So why do teenagers invent new words, or invent new meanings for old words? Many people think it’s because
they don’t want adults to understand, but that probably isn’t true---the real reason is that teenagers like to be creative and play with language, so they have fun creating new words.
And what do parents and old people think about it all? Most of them don’t worry about it---after all, they had their
own special words when they teenagers too. But, some adults complain about “teen talk” and get quite annoyed by it.
But that’s all part of the fun for the teenagers!
63. What is the way of teenagers’ saying good in the 2000s?（只用一个单词）
64. Why do teenagers invent new words?
65.What is the topic of the passage?

Possible version: Dear Jack,
I’m so glad you’re coming to Beijing during the Spring Festival season. It’s the best time to experience Chinese holiday
culture. I’ve planned a one-day tour for you in Beijing.
In the morning, we will go to Ditan Temple Fair, one of the biggest in Beijing. There you’ll learn about typical Chinese
folk arts such as paper cuts and calligraphy artwork. We’ll also watch dragon and lion dances, an important celebration
show for the holiday. At noon, we will try some local snacks there. I’m sure it’ll be a new experience for you.
I know you are interested in Peking Opera, so we’ll go to Beijing Liyuan Theatre in the afternoon. You will see what different opera mask colors mean. I believe the stage performance will impress you most! What do you think of the arrangements? If you have any other plans, just let me know. Li Hua
