嘉峪关市一中 2015-2016 学年第一学期期中考试 高二英语试卷
第Ⅰ卷（选择题） 时间：100 分钟 分值：120 分 第一部分：阅读理解 第一节： （共 15 小题，每小题 2 分，满分 30 分） A Only about 30 percent of people in the US know how to perform CPR (心肺复苏术). Recently, a 9-year-old boy showed a Georgia woman how to perform CPR on her newborn baby. Susanna Rohm said she had experienced a parent’s worst nightmare (噩梦) — her 2-month-old son, Isiah, was not breathing. “I noticed he looked pale. I looked at his arms and his legs and they were limp (无力的),” Rohm told a local newspaper. “Then I noticed that he looked like he wasn’t alive.” In dismay, she dropped and broke her cellphone. Rohm had to run into the street, screaming for help. “I had him in my arms and screamed over and over. Then I ran outside. I saw two boys playing across the street, and I yelled, ‘Go and ask your parents to call 911,’” Rohm said. But the two boys were able to do more than that. Nine-year-old Ethan Wilson took action, showing Rohm how to perform CPR on little Isiah while ten-year-old Rocky Hurt helped as well. Rocky said he had learned the CPR technique from a poster in a health class at their school, Sedalia Park Elementary. “I was thinking we’d better give her a helping hand instead of getting scared,” Ethan said. “I told her to push on the baby’s chest five to ten times a minute with only two fingers, tilt back the baby’s head, plug the baby’s nose and breathe into the baby’s mouth, ” Ethan said in an interview. At last, Isiah began crying and was breathing again. He spent two nights in a local hospital. “If the little boy hadn’t shown me what to do right there, my baby would probably not be alive right now,” Rohm said. 1．We can learn from Paragraph 1 that in the US, . A. CPR is considered important by most people B. most children are taught how to perform CPR C. many parents don’t know how to perform CPR D. kids must learn how to perform CPR on babies 2．What does the underlined word “dismay” in Paragraph 2 probably mean? A. Panic. B. Anger. C. Excitement. D. Joy. 3．What did Rohm do when she saw the two boys? A. She asked them to call 911 as soon as possible. B. She asked them to teach her how to perform CPR. C. She asked them to ask their parents for help. D. She asked them to help her perform CPR on her baby.
4．What Rohm said in the last paragraph shows that she was A. grateful B. regretful C. surprised D. ashamed
B Fifty people died, over 11,000 were injured, and 100,000 houses were heavily damaged or destroyed in an earthquake that struck North China's Hebei Province. The quake, measuring 6. 2 on the Richter scale (里氏 6 .2 级) , hit the area 220km northwest of Beijing at 11: 50 a. m. on January 10, 1998. Scientists made a report of the recent quake. They said that the area of northwestern Beijing, the joint of Shanxi and Hebei Provinces and the Inner Mongolia (内蒙古) were most easily attacked by earthquakes measuring 6 to a bit over 7 on the Richter scale. However, scientists did not see the recent earthquake earlier. Clouds covered a large area in the northern part of North China before the earthquake and experts say that this prevented satellites from correctly watching the temperature at the correct altitude (纬度). Experts say that in the last ten years, about 305 earthquakes have taken place in China with 9 measuring over 7 on the Richter scale, 60 measuring over 6, and 236 measuring over 5. Tens of thousands of people died or were injured. Loss valued over 10 billion yuan. 5．The report shows that about nine earthquakes in the past ten years are measured over ____ on the Richter scale. A. 7 B.5 C.9 D.6 6．It can be inferred from the report that the damage caused by the earthquakes could be much less heavy if ____. A. all the people stayed outside B. the earthquake happened at midnight C. the people had been warned earlier D. the earthquake scale was lower than 6. 2 only 7．Which of the following can be reasonable except ____. A. We can not stop earthquakes B. Scientists are working hard at the researches on earthquakes C. We can do our best to have fewer damages than ever D.

However, Shi cares more about the children of these migrant workers. Last year Shi’s housekeeper’s daughter had to give up her schooling in Beijing because she would not be allowed to sit the national college entrance exam. She was
forced to continue her high school education in her hometown in Sichuan Province. Shi thinks the current law is unfair for migrant workers’ children, as it prevents them from studying at public schools, unless their parents pay huge sums. So, Shi decided to do a survey of migrant workers so that she could find some solutions to help solve the problem. In the last six months Shi spoke to 186 migrant workers in Beijing. Her interviewees include babysitters, guards, keepers, supermarket clerks, house cleaners and construction site workers. Shi found out that 55 of them were parents. Among this group, only eight have children who attend schools in Beijing. The other 47 had to leave children with relatives in the countryside. However, 40 of the 47 would like to enroll(使入学) their children in city schools. From her interviews, Shi found that the workers’ lowest income was 400 yuan each month. Over one-third earn a monthly wage of or below 1000 yuan. “Even schools for migrant workers’ children charge more than public schools. Morever, parents constantly worry about these schools closing or relocating,” she explained. Shi has recently completed a report about her survey, in which she makes a series of recommendations. “The government can set up public schools for migrants’ children equal to schools for city children. Second, to offset( 弥 补 ) migrant workers’ very low pay, public schools should offer them special rates so they can afford their children’s tuition(学费). 12．What drove Shi to do the survey of migrant workers? A. Her curiosity about migrant workers’ lives B. She was asked to do a survey of migrant workers as part of a school project. C. Her housekeeper’s daughter was forced to move to her hometown to continue studying. D. She wanted to draw people’s attention and become famous 13．According to Shi’s survey, most migrant workers’ kids _____. A. don’t live together with their parents B. attend schools near their parents’ working places C. have to help their parents support the family D. always do better in schools than children from the city. 14．All of the following prevent migrant workers’ kids from attending schools in cities EXCEPT _____. A. their parents’ low income B. their lack of confidence to face the fierce competitions in city schools C. schools’ high tuitions D. that schools for migrant workers’ children may close or relocate 15．Shi suggested in her survey that _____. A. more private schools for migrants’ children should be built B. more money should be collected for migrants’ children C. children’s tuition should be reduced D. students from the city and the countryside should be encouraged to communicate more 第二节： （共 5 小题，每小题 2 分，满分 10 分）根据短文内容，从短文后的七个选项中选
