二、阅读理解（共 3 道试题，共 60 分。）V 1. One of the things I always believe is that no matter how bad something is, you can take something positive out of it. The one thing I wasn’t sure of that was on September 11.
I usually wake up at 6:30 or 7:00 in the morning. That day, I happened to wake up earlier. I turned on the TV and I saw that a plane had crashed into the North Tower of the World Trade Center. My first reaction was that it was a terrible accident. Then I saw another plane fly into the South Tower and I realized that I was witnessing(目击) an act of terrorism.
My wife and I spent the day watching the terrible pictures over and over again. When I watched family members looking for their loved ones, the pain in their eyes was something I would never forget. I couldn’t understand how something this terrible could have happened.
It wasn’t until a few weeks after September 11 that I began to see that perhaps some good did come from this tragedy（悲剧）. People seem different now, more understanding, more tolerant(宽容的). Things that seemed to be such a trouble before are no longer big things. Personally, I am more tolerant than I was. I realize life is too short, and too precious（珍贵的）to let myself get worried over small things. I’ve learned also that you can’t take things for granted. Things change in the blink(眨眼) of an eye. People go to work and don’t come back. One moment they’re living and the next minute they’re not. And no matter who you are, there is nothing you can do about it. We never know when our time here will be over, so we call need to make the most of every minute we have. You try to learn from what happened. You can’t be used up by it. You can’t live by it. All you can do is just live.

A. Watching TV.
B. Saving injured people.
C. Looking for his loved ones.

5). From September 11, the writer has realized that .
A. people should value every minute they have
B. he has become less tolerant towards others
C. he should get worried about little things

2. Laptop computers are popular all over the world. People use them on trains and airplanes, in airports and hotels. These laptops connect people to their workplace. In the United States today, laptops also connect students to their classrooms.
Westlake College in Virginia will start a laptop computer program that allows students to do schoolwork anywhere they want. Within five years, each of the 1500 students at the college will receive a laptop. The laptops are part of a ＄10 million computer program at Westlake, a 110-year-old college. The students with laptops will also have access to the Internet. In addition, they will be able to use e-mail to “speak” with their teachers, their classmates, and their families. However, the most important part of the laptop program is that students will be able to use computers without going to computer labs. They can work with it at home, in a fast-food restaurant or under the trees-anywhere at all!
Because of the many changes in computer technology laptop use in higher education, such as colleges and universities, is workable. As laptops become more powerful, they become more similar to desktop computers. In addition, the portable computers can connect students to not only the Internet, but also libraries and other resources. State higher-education officials are studying how laptops can help students. State officials are also testing laptop programs at other universities, too.
At Westlake College, more than 60 percent of the staff use computers. The laptops will allow all teachers to use computers in their lessons. As one Westlake teacher said,“Here we are in the middle of Virginia and we’re giving students a window on the world. They can see everything and do everything.”

3. Everyday we go to school and listen to the teacher, and the teacher will ask us some questions. Sometimes, the classmates will ask your opinions of the work of the class. When you are telling others in the class what you have found out about these topics, remember that they must be able to hear what you are saying. You are not taking part in a family conversation or having a chat(闲谈) with friends—you are in a slightly unnatural situation where a large group of people will remain silent, waiting to hear what you have to say. You must speak so that they can hear you—loudly enough and clearly enough but without trying to shout or appearing to force yourself.
Remember, too, that it is the same if you are called to an interview whether it is with a professor of your school or a government official who might meet you. The person you are seeing will try to put you at your ease(轻松) but the situation is somewhat(一点儿) different from that of an ordinary conversation. You must take special care that you can be heard.
