[范文] Last weekend, I had an interview with Professor Wang, an eye-doctor, concerning the issue of short-sightedness of school children in China. According to Professor Wang, slightly more than half of the school children in our country are short-sighted, ranking the first in the world. He also pointed out that the causes of short- sightedness are so complicated that no medicine can cure short-sightedness. He suggested that school

children avoid overuse of their eyes and do more outdoor
activities. He particularly reminded us that how to hold a pen is also related to short-sightedness.

Ⅲ .阅读理解 A When you have a question about something, where do

you go? For many people the answer is simple. They
go online to a search engine like Google or Yahoo. But what about people in rural or underdeveloped areas who may have no way to get on the Internet? Luckily, Rose Shuman, a business and international

development consultant in California, has found a
way for them. Her amazing solution is “Question Box”.

Question Box is a service that provides answers—free of charge—for people who cannot search the Internet directly. They might not be able to read, or they simply have no access.

Question Box began two years ago in India. People use a metal call box with a push?to?talk button to connect to a live operator, as Rose Shuman explains, “You just push a button, a big green button, and that will connect you directly to our operators who are sitting in front of computers, and speak your

language. And you can ask them any sort of
question you want, and they'll look it up in English or in Hindi, or whatever the main language is, and translate the answer right back for you.”

The service is currently offered in two villages. The latest version of the box uses mobile phone technology and solar panels in case the electrical power fails. Rose Shuman says the aim was to make the box as easy as possible for users.

“Rather than try to bring a lot of infrastructure to them and expect them to learn how to use the Internet, the idea was to make a technology that even Grandma could use, figuring that Grandma could probably walk up to a box and push a button,” added Shuman.

In April, Question Box expanded to Uganda. Forty community workers with mobile phones connect villagers to call center operators in Kampala. The community workers go around telling people about the service. They wear T?shirts that say “Ask Me.”

But Internet service in Uganda proved slow and undependable. So Question Box teamed up with a local technology company to store information on a local server. That way, the researchers in Kampala can quickly search the database for answers when users ask about current events and many other

subjects.

Rose Shuman continued, “When was Mahatma Gandhi born and how long is the Nile River? What's the tallest mountain? The funniest one I think we got was, ?Did the pyramids ever move to another place?’, which we found pretty funny. But we did look it up, and they haven't moved.”

1. According to the passage, “Question Box” is a service intended to______. A. help improve the living standard of the people in

poor areas
B. promote the computer technology C. provide answers raised by the people who have no access to the Internet D. enrich the local people's life 答案及解析: 1. C。根据第二段可知。

2. Which of the following is true about Question Box according to the passage? A. Uganda is the original place where the service

started.
B. Some modern technologies have been used for improving the service. C. Question Box won't be able to work if there is no electrical power.

D. It was impossible for a grandma to use Question
Box.

答案及解析: 2. B。C选项可以根据第四段The latest version of the box uses mobile phone technology and solar panels in

case the electrical power fail.判断,A选项根据第三段
的第一句Question Box began two years ago in India. 判断,D选项根据第五段“the idea was to make a technology that even Grandma could use”判断。

3. We can learn from the passage that in Uganda ______. A. forty call center operators helped make Question

Box known to villagers
B. it was very convenient for villagers to have access to Internet service C. users are very interested in current events D. a local technology company cooperate with

Question Box

答案及解析: 3. D。 根据倒数第二段的第二句可知。

4. What can be inferred from the last paragraph? A. All the questions asked by people are pretty funny. B. Workers of Question Box know the answer to any

question.
C. Question Box always tries to answer the questions, no matter how strange. D. Those who asked questions wanted to make progress in their studies.

答案及解析: 4. C。A、B选项太绝对,D选项不能根据文章推断出来,C 选项根据最后一句可知。

5. What attitude does the writer hold towards “Question Box” according to the passage? A. Indefinite. B. Negative.

C. Supportive.
答案及解析:

D. Indifferent.

5. C。根据第一段最后两句中的Luckily...amazing...等词可 以看出作者的态度是很赞同和支持这项服务的。

B The History of the Games Olympia

Olympia, the site of the ancient Olympic Games, is in
the western part of the Peloponnese which, according to Greek mythology, is the island of “Pelops”, the founder of the Olympic Games. Imposing temples, votive buildings, elaborate

shrines and ancient sporting facilities(设备) were
combined in a site of unique natural and mystical beauty.

Olympia functioned as a meeting place for worship and other religious and political practices as early as the 10th century BC. The central part of Olympia was dominated by the majestic temple of Zeus, with the temple of Hera parallel to it. The ancient stadium in Olympia could hold more than 40 000 audience,

while in the surrounding area there were auxiliary(辅
助的) buildings which developed gradually up until the 4th century BC. and were used as training sites for the athletes or to house the judges of the Games.

The Games and religion The Olympic Games were closely linked to the religious festivals of the cult of Zeus, but were not a

total part of a rite. Indeed, they had a secular
character and aimed to show the physical qualities and development of the performances accomplished by young people, as well as encouraging good relations between the cities of Greece. According to specialists, the Olympic Games owed their purity and importance to religion.

Victory ceremonies The Olympic victor received his first awards immediately after the competition. Following the announcement of the winner's name by the herald,_a Hellanodikis (Greek judge) would place a palm branch in his hands, while the audience cheered and

threw flowers to him. Red ribbons were tied on his
head and hands as a mark of victory.

The official award ceremony would take place on the last day of the Games, at the elevated vestibule of the temple of Zeus. In a loud voice, the herald would announce the name of the Olympic winner, his father's name, and his homeland. Then, the Hellanodikis placed the sacred olive tree wreath, or

“kotinos”, on the winner's head.

6. When did Olympia become the site of the Olympic Games? A. In the 10th century BC.

B. Before the 4th century BC.
C. After the 4th century BC. D. It was not mentioned here. 答案及解析: 6. B。文章第二段提到公元前4世纪的时候奥林匹亚运动场

建造的辅助设施用来训练运动员或给裁判员休息,可见那
时已经开始举行奥运会了。

7. Which one is true according to the passage? A. Zeus is the founder of the Olympic Games. B. The ancient stadium in Olympia was used as

training sites for the athletes in the 10th century.
C. The Olympic Games have much to do with the religion. D. The Olympic victor would receive a golden medal. 答案及解析: 7. C。文章第三段说到奥运会与宗教有很大的关系。

8. Can you guess the meaning of this word “herald” in the passage? A. The author. B. The headmaster.

C. The announcer.
答案及解析:

D. The manager.

8. C。从文章后两段可以看出, herald是宣布获奖结果的,

所以可以推测出应当是宣告员。

9. When the athletes won the game, ______. A. they were awarded immediately after the competition

B. they were awarded twice: The first, immediately
after the competition; the second, on the last day of the game C. they were awarded on the last day of the game D. they were awarded on the last day of the game or

immediately after the competition
