第三期 | 2020杨浦区一模十大难关
W: Wow! The Harry Potter glasses you're wearing are pretty funny.
M: Thanks. My aunt gave them to me for Christmas. It's the thought that counts, I suppose.
10. What does the man imply?
A. He counts on his relatives to get him a good gift.
B. The Harry Porter glasses are not really what he wanted.
C. Good Christmas gifts take much thought to prepare.
D. His aunt is a considerate and thoughtful lady.
W: Hey, David! Are you good at complaining?
M: Of course not, I'm British. I never complain, even when I get terrible service. It's just too embarrassing.
W: Well, you might be in a minority as it seems we British are complaining more than we used to. Do you know the oldest recorded complaint is on a stone tablet in the British Museum.
M: Really? What was the compliant about? Was it about the incorrect number of goats that were delivered after being bought at a market?
W: Well, good guess. But it was about the quality of silver that was supplied.
M: How come you know so much about complaint?
W: I recently listened to a BBC radio program about consumer affairs. Based on the survey by an organization called Institute of Customer service, public services, transport and telecoms are the areas that have most problems in terms of keeping the customers satisfied.
M: I think I know why. Public services usually don't have enough money or enough staff, while telecommunication systems such as Internet connection are very complicated and sometimes go wrong.
W: Yes, and bad weather affects transport. Surprisingly, travel and entertainment appear to be performing well.
M: I wonder how people are making their complaints Are modem methods taking over from the traditional letter or phone call?
W: Again based on the survey, the more traditional methods are still dominant with over 58%of A, complaints made by phone or by letter, though a small part of people do turn to social media.
M: I don't think turning to social media is a good idea. It will only worsen the problem.
W: Most people seek media attention only when their complaint is not dealt with. They use it as an escalation point.
M: That makes sense. Putting complaint on social media might force a company to deal with the complaint sooner.
W: Well, David, after all the talk about complaint, will you consider making a complaint if you have to in the future?
M: I seriously doubt it.
20. What can be inferred about David's attitude towards complaining?
A. He is embarrassed that so many British are complaining.
B. He is doubtful whether we should complain on social media.
C. He will seriously consider making a complaint if he has to.
D. He is unlikely to complain even if he gets bad service at a restaurant.
10. 本题是易错题，重点是funny的理解。funny是滑稽的，古怪的，不合适的。后面还有“It's the thought that counts”. 强调句，重要的是想法。姑姑有这个心意给我买，就很好。潜台词：虽然我也不喜欢这个眼镜。
1. I'm British. I never complain, even when I get terrible service.
2. I seriously doubt it.
A man released 12 wild rabbits onto his property for hunting and he (22) ________ have thought that was harmless fun.
(29) ________(test) multiple times, the deadly myxoma virus was released on Australia's rabbits in 1950.
29. Having been tested
29. 本题是分词作状语的结构，这种病毒应该是被检测，所以首先是被动，其次因为有multiple times, 强调完成，所以应该填被动完成，即Having been tested。
This student, like many I teach, believes she should be able to ___42___ the outcomes of her life by virtue of her hard work.
Psychologists have sourced this phenomenon to a misapplication of “mind-set” research, which has found that praising children for___47___will increase academic performance.
42. A ；47. C
42. A. 上文提到一名运动员犯错陷入自我批评，觉得自己身体状况好，又很用功，怎么不能控制事情的状况，所以选control。
48. C. 因为用功表扬孩子会提高孩子的学习成绩，后文提到praising hard work over ability，effort和hard work同义。
Trapped inside the Olduvai sand-stones, the researchers found distinctive but unusual biological molecules（分子）that are often interpreted as biomarkers for heat-tolerant bacteria. Some of these live in water between 85°C and 95°C. The molecules’ presence suggests that an ancient river within the Gorge was once fed by one or more hot springs.
64. The presence of biological molecules was important because_________.
A. they suggested a possible means of cooking without fire
B. they cast light on how early Homo erectus lived
C. they provided a convenient way of studying stone tools
D. they made studies of pre-historic cultures possible
In New Zealand，the Maori have traditionally cooked food in hot springs, either by lowering it into the boiling water or by digging a hole in the hot earth. Similar methods exist in Japan and Iceland, so it is plausible, if difficult to prove, that early humans might have used hot springs to cook meat and roots.
65. The underlined word “plausible” probably means_________.
A. noticeable B. applicable
C. reasonable D. affordable
64. A ；65. C
64. A 细节理解题，定位至文章第二段末。Trapped inside ...by one or more hot springs. 由此可以看出这种生物分子被视为耐热性细菌的标志，这些生物分子的出现使得在没有火的情况下烹饪变得可能，因此选A项。
65. C 词汇理解题，定位至文章最后一段此句话Similar methods exist in Japan and Iceland, so it is plausible, if difficult to prove, that early humans might have used hot springs to cook meat and roots. 从上文可以得知毛利人曾借助温泉来烹饪，因此这种方法在日本和冰岛运用也是合理的。A项显著的，B项可应用的，D项可承担的。
The 904 New Zealand men and women who were tested at 45 were tracked from the age of three, each undergoing multiple tests over the years. The long-term data collection enabled researchers to establish that kids with lower IQ scores, lower linguistic ability and weaker emotional control tended to have slower walking speeds by middle age._____70______
The research team said genetic factors may explain the link between walking speed, brain capacity and physical health or that better brain health might promote physical activity, leading to better walking speed.
70. 根据文章中上一句中提到the kids with lower IQ scores,以及最后一段中研究者解释有可能有基因因素导致，这里选D：在他们45岁时的最终评估中，脑部扫描显示慢行者的总脑容量和脑表面积往往较低。对应这一段提到的大脑容量。
The Psychology of Spending
Dr. Thomas Gilovich, psychology professor at Cornell University, has studied the psychology of spending for over 20 years. According to Dr. Gilovich，“We buy things to make us happy, and we succeed, but only for a while. New things are exciting to us at first, but then we adapt to them.” In other words，once the freshness of our newest purchase wears off, we begin looking for something else to buy to make us happy.
Dr. Gilovichfound that our satisfaction with possessions fades over time. Yet our happiness over things we've experienced increases. For that reason, he has concluded that we are spending our money on the wrong things. A study out of San Francisco State University agrees. The research showed that those people who spent money on experiences instead of possessions were happier. They also thought their money was better invested.
To begin with, activities like a trip, adventure, hobby, etc. tend to bring the participants together and unite them over a shared interest. According to Gilovich, “We consume experiences directly with other people.” As a result, these experiences typically create a positive link and good feelings toward the other person or people.
Besides, your experience shows others who you are and what you are. For example, you might be someone who loves taking cooking classes. More than likely, you'll become known by friends and family as a great cook. They won't know you as someone who owns the latest kitchen equipment.
Lastly, planned experiences are frequently something we look forward to. Then when the moment arrives, if we enjoy the time involved in the activity, we're left with fond memories. These memories will often last a lifetime. Even our worst trips, on many occasions, arc later remembered with laughter.
After studying the link between spending and happiness for years, Dr. Gilovich has found that experiences rather than possessions paid for will more likely bring long-lasting happiness. Firstly, activities can unite individuals, thus creating a feeling of closeness. Secondly, what we do rather than what we own shows our identity. Lastly, experiences whether good or bad, provide lasting fond memories. (59)
