满分：2 分、阅读理解（共 3 道试题，共 60 分。）V 1. The large part which war played in English affairs in the Middle-Ages, the fact that the control of the army and navy was in the hands of those that spoke French, and the circumstances that much of English fighting was done in France all resulted in the introduction into English of a number of French military terms. The art of war has undergone such changes since the battles of Hastings, Lewes, and Agincourt that many words once common are now only in historical use. Their places have been taken by later borrowings, often like wise from French, many of them being words acquired by the French in the course of their wars in Italy during the sixteenth century. Yet we still use French words of the Middle Ages when we speak of the army and the navy, of peace, enemy, battle, soldier, guard and spy, and we have kept the names of officers such as captain and sergeant. Some of the French terms were introduced into English because they were needed to express a new object or a new idea.In other cases a French and a native English word for the same thing existed side by side. Sometimes one or the other has since been lost from the language; but sometimes both the borrowed and the native word have been still in common use.
1). The main idea of this passage is that ____
A. most of today’s common English military terms dated from the sixteenth century or later
B. a study of the English vocabulary shows the important part which war has played in the history of England
C. many French words borrowed into English during the Middle Ages have since disappeared from the language
D. many military terms used in English were originally borrowed from French, some as early as the Middle Ages
2). All of the following have something to do with the introduction into English of many French military terms except that ____
A. war played an important part in English affairs in the Middle Ages
B. the English army and navy were controlled by those who spoke French in the war between England and France
C. France invaded England in the Middle Ages and many battles were fought in England
D. much of English fighting was done in France in the war between England and France
3). The art of war has undergone such changes that ___
A. we no longer use any French words of the Middle Ages
B. many words once common are not used any longer and they are replaced by Italian words
C. French military terms have disappeared from the English language
D. many words once common are now only in historical use and their places have been taken by the newly-borrowed words
4). Which of the following is not the French word borrowed into English during the Middle Ages?

D. “battle” is the borrowed word and “fight” is the native one
I've only got 10 days left in England. Can you believe I've already been here for a year? There's so much to do before I leave! I really must buy presents for my English friends to thank them for all their help. I have to move out of my room on Friday because Franco has got another tenant. At least I don't have to find somewhere else to live. I'm going to spend a few days with friends. He is letting the whole flat because Mary is moving just before her marriage. The time has gone so quickly. I cannot believe that I've been here for a whole year. And I must start packing too - I have bought a lot since I came, and I need another suitcase. I'll give some things to charity shops I think.
Anyway, I'm really writing to say that I'll be back in Shanghai on the 27 April, and it would be great to see you to catch up on all our news. I'll phone as soon as I get back.

3. Looking back on my childhood, I am convinced that naturalists are born and not made. Although we were brought up in the same way, my brothers and sisters soon abandoned their pressed (紧抱的) flowers and insects. Unlike them, I had no ear for music and languages. I was not an early reader and I could not do mental arithmetic.
Before World War I we spent our summer holidays in Hungary. I have only the dim memory of the house we lived in, of my room and my toys. Nor do I recall clearly the large family of grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins who gathered next door. But I do have a crystal-clear memory of the dogs, the farm animals, the local birds and, above all, the insects.
I am a naturalist, not a scientist. I have a strong love of the natural world, and my enthusiasm has led me into varied investigations. I love discussing my favorite topics and enjoy burning the midnight oil while reading about other people’s observations and discoveries. Then something happens that brings these observations together in my conscious mind. Suddenly you fancy you see the answer to the riddle (谜), because it all seems to fit together. This has resulted in my publishing 300 papers and books, which some might honor with the title of scientific research.
But curiosity, a keen eye, a good memory and enjoyment of the animal and plant world do not make a scientist; one of the outstanding and essential qualities required is self-discipline, a quality I lack. A scientist, up to a point, can be made. A naturalist is born. If you can combine the two, you get the best of both worlds.
1). According to the author, a born naturalist should first of all be _____.
B. full of enthusiasm
C. full of ambition
2). The first paragraph tells us that the author _____.
A. was interested in flowers and insects in his childhood
B. lost his hearing when he was a child
C. didn’t like his brothers and sisters
D. was born to a naturalist’s family
3). The author says that he is a naturalist rather than a scientist probably because he thinks he _____.
A. just reads about other people’s observations and discoveries
B. comes up with solutions in most natural way
C. has a great deal of trouble doing mental arithmetic
D. lacks some of the qualities required of a scientist
4). The author can’t remember his relatives clearly because _____.
A. he was fully occupied with observing nature
B. he didn’t live very long with them
C. the family was extremely large
D. he was too young when he lived with them
5). Which of the following statements is true?
A. The author believes that a born naturalist cannot be a scientist.
B. The author’s brothers and sisters were good at music and languages.
C. The author read a lot of books about the natural world and the oil industry.
D. The author spent a lot of time working on riddles.
