B. Whatever is the weather like

解析：分析句子结构可知，空处是一个让步状语从句。英语中常用的询问天气情况的表达方式有两种：What is the weather like?和How is the weather?一般how不和like同时使用，可排除C、D两项。whatever意为“无论什么”，可在让步状语从句中作like的宾语，且从句应用陈述句语序。故选A。
9.______ before we leave tomorrow, we should invite all our friends to hold a party to welcome them.(C)
A. Had they come back
B. Were they coming back
C. Were they to come back
D. Would they come back

11.The company considers______significantly important to provide perfect service for its clients.(A)

19.The visiting professor is from The University of Tokyo and he speaks English with a strong Japanese______.(C)
20.When the police broke into the house, they found the old man ______ dead on the floor.(D)
解析：A项lain是动词lie(躺，平卧)的过去分词，通常表示被动或动作的完成；B项laid是动词lay(放置，下蛋)的过去式和过去分词；C项laying是动词lay的现在分词；D项lying是动词lie的现在分词。根据句意可排除B项和C项。又因为the old man和lie之间是逻辑上的主谓关系，所以应用现在分词形式。故选D。

C. to have broadened
D. to be broadened
22.It is no good______about the living conditions here. You should adapt yourself to the environment.(D)

Participation in classrooms is not only accepted but also expected from the students in many courses. Some professors base part of the final grade on the students’ oral participation.

In graduate seminars the professor has a \
31.Participation in the classroom is not only accepted but also expected from the students in many courses except in______.(D)
A. seminar courses
B. the humanities and social sciences
C. informal lecture courses

32.Education in the humanities and social sciences has______.(B)
A. not changed much

C. changed a little
D. become more theoretical than applied
解析：根据第三段第二句“However，new educational trends have emerged in the humanities and social sciences in the past two decades．”和最后一句“Since some college or university courses are‘applied’rather than theoretical…”可知，人文社科类的课程教学出现了新的变化趋势，一些大学开设的课程更注重应用实践而非理论。故选B。
33.It can be inferred from the passage that______.(A)
A. an active participant in a seminar is a good student
B. a student who can always take full notes is a good one
C. a student who can dominate the class is a good one
D. a student who keeps silent in the classroom is a good one
解析：根据第一段第二句“Some professors base part of the final grade on the students’oral participation．”可推知，学生在课堂上的口头发言参与是会被计入到期末成绩中的，研讨会上表现越积极，分数自然就越高，就是一个好学生，所以A项正确，B项和D项错误。文中并没有提到一个能够掌控课堂的学生就是一个好学生，所以C项错误。故选A。
34.The reason why some professors ask students to make presentations and lead discussions is that______.(C)
A. these professors are not willing to teach theory
B. these professors are often not well prepared before class
C. these professors want to stress \

A. Student participation is not common in the classroom in many courses like sociology.
B. Some professors want to dominate the classroom discussion.
C. Some professors usually want the students to participate in the teaching of sciences and mathematics.

A blizzard (暴风雪) is a severe weather condition characterized by low temperatures and strong winds, greater than 35 miles per hour, bearing a great amount of snow.
Because the factors for classifying winter storms are complex, there are many definitions of what a blizzard truly is. But it is generally agreed that in order to be classified as a blizzard, as opposed to merely a winter storm, the weather must meet several conditions. The storm must decrease visibility to a quarter of a mile for three hours running, include snow or ice as precipitation, and have wind speeds of at least 32 miles per hour, which means Force seven or more on the wind scale.
Another standard, according to Environment Canada, is that the winter storm must have winds of 40 kilometers per hour or more, plenty of snow, visibility less than one kilometer, a temperature of less than minus 25 degrees Celsius, and all of these conditions must last for four hours or more, before the storm can properly be called a blizzard.
When all of these conditions continue after snow has stopped falling, the storm is referred to as a ground blizzard. An extreme form of a blizzard is a whiteout, when the downdrafts, together with snowfall, become so severe that it is impossible to distinguish the ground from the air. People caught in a whiteout can quickly become disoriented, losing their sense of up and down as well as their sense of direction. Severe blizzards can also occur along with arctic cyclones(气旋).
36.What’s the passage mainly about?(A)
A. The definitions of blizzards.
B. The disasters caused by blizzards.
C. The amount of snow brought by blizzards.
D. The strong winds caused by blizzards.
解析：第一段第一句就指出“A blizzard is a severe…”，即暴风雪的定义。第 二、三段分别给出了界定暴风雪的标准，最后一段介绍了其他情况下的暴风雪类型。 综上可知，文章主要讲述了暴风雪的定义。故选A。
37.Which of the following is true of a blizzard according to the first standard?(B)
A. One can’ t see anything beyond a mile.
B. One can’t see anything beyond a quarter of a mile.
C. The wind blows at a speed of 25 miles per hour.
D. The wind blows at a speed of 23 miles per hour.
解析：根据第二段第三句“The storm must decrease visibility to a quarter of a mile…and have wind speeds of at least 32 miles per hour…”可知，根据第一种标准，暴 风雪应满足的天气状况包括：能见度必须减小到0．25英里，风速至少达到每小时32 英里。故选B。
38.Which of the following is true of a blizzard according to the second standard?(C)
A. Visibility is decreased to 2 kilometers.
B. Visibility is decreased to 1.5 kilometers.
C. The wind blows at a speed of 40 kilometers per hour.
D. The wind blows at a speed of 32 kilometers per hour.
解析：根据第三段“…must have winds of 40 kilometers per hour or more… visibility less than one kilometer…”可知，根据第二种标准，暴风雪应满足的天气状况 包括：能见度小于一千米，风速达到40千米每小时。故选C。
39.What is a ground blizzard?(D)
A. A blizzard blowing over a piece of land.
B. A blizzard hitting a plain.
C. When the snow has stopped falling, the visibility increases and the wind force decreases.
D. When the snow has stopped falling, the visibility and wind remain.
解析：根据最后一段第一句“When all of these conditions continue after snow has stopped falling，the storm is referred to as a ground blizzard．”可知，降雪停止后，上述天 气状况依然继续时，即可见度、风速、气温等保持不变，此时的暴风雪就被称为地面暴 风雪(ground blizzard)。故选D。
40.Which of the following is the correct order of increasing force?(C)
A. Winter storm—whiteout—blizzard.
B. Whiteout—winter storm—blizzard.
C. Winter storm—blizzard—whiteout.
D. Blizzard—winter storm—whiteout.
解析：根据第二段第二句“…in order to be classified as a blizzard，as opposed to merely a winter storm，the weather must meet several conditions．”和最后一段第二句“An extreme form of a blizzard is a whiteout…”可知，三者的级别从小到大依次为winter storm，blizzard，whiteout。故选C。
You are here to see Bill Gates, the Chairman and Chief Software Architect of Microsoft Corporation. As you know, Microsoft is the worldwide leader in software services and Internet technology for personal and business computing. Last year’s revenues topped $32 billion, and the company employed 55,000 people in 85 countries. And Mr. Gates is an iconic figure in contemporary computing.
While attending Harvard, Bill Gates and his childhood friend Paul Allen started Microsoft, and launched a revolution. The fledgling (新建的) company was more interesting than the classroom for Bill Gates, so he dropped out in his junior year. In his case, it was clearly a great decision. He not only built a company, but more importantly he built a vision. Both were built on the idea that the computer would be a valuable tool on every office desk and in every home, and that software was the key. The penetration(渗透，进入) of personal computing in our businesses, our offices, our public libraries, on the train or on the plane, and in our home is astonishing, and truly reflects the Bill Gates’ view that if the software is right, they will come.
Bill Gates is also an author of two books. One of them, Business at the Speed of Thought, is available in 60 nations and 25 languages. It shows how computer technology can solve business problems in fundamentally new ways. By the way, the proceeds of both books are given to nonprofits that support the use of technology in education and skill development.

B. hold a meeting
C. attend a business meeting
D. meet his colleagues
解析：根据第一段第一句“You are here to see Bill Gates…”和最后一段最后一 句“So please join me in giving an Illinois welcome to William H．Bill Gates．”可推知，本 文是一篇欢迎致辞，目的是请出比尔-盖茨为大家演讲。故选A。
As technology transcends national boundaries and demystifies(使明白) cultures, and the speed of flight transcends the speed of sound, it’ s time for us to reflect upon whether or not our students are prepared to meet the challenges of the information age. Are we losing sight of what our task is to prepare our youngsters to become effective contributors to society?
Today’ s children must be prepared with the knowledge and experience to be able to select, retrieve(检索) and synthesize(合成) information from traditional and nontraditional sources, and
apply it locally and transnationally. Our children need to experience learning in a cooperative, inquiry-based environment so that they develop from a state of dependency through independence to interdependency. They need to read very eagerly in a variety of contexts, and apply mathematical and scientific concepts to real life situations within and between disciplines to solve anticipated and unpredictable problems. To make them citizens of the world, they need to learn a second language starting in kindergarten, so that they can communicate effectively in an international marketplace. They need technological expertise and familiarity with computers to use them in the classroom and beyond. They must be nurtured, and we must support their desire to become lifelong learners. Can these objectives be realized? Certainly. We must \

48.The purpose of a cooperative, inquiry-based learning is to nurture students’ ______.(D)
C. desire to learn life-long
解析：根据第二段第二句“Our children need to…so that they develop from a state of dependency through independence to interdependency．”可知，基于探究的合作学习是为了培养学生之间的相互依赖性。故选D。

解析：strangely：奇怪地，不可思议地；unusually：不寻常地；approximately：大约， 约莫；actually：实际上，事实上。根据句意并结合上文“They argue that women， especially women in their childbearing years…”可知，有些人认为哺乳期的女性参加工 作实际上会拖累经济的发展。故选D。
解析：result in：导致，结果是，后面跟结果；result from：起因于，原因是，后面跟原 因。两者都属于固定短语。result一般不与介词with，on搭配。根据上下文可知，哺乳 期的女性参加工作会导致产量低、质量不高和效率低下，这都属于结果。故选B。
解析：availability：可用性，实用性；inefficiency：无效率；relationship：友谊；harmony：和谐，融洽相处。根据空前的lower productivity，poor quality可知，此处应选与之意思相近的词，所以inefficiency符合语境。故选B。

B. to poll
C. to be polled
解析：本题考查非谓语动词的用法. poll：对……进行民意测验。空前的“…9 out of 10 people”很明显属于被测验的对象，因此应用过去分词作后置定语，其完整表 达为“9 out of 10 people who were polled”。故选D。
解析：holiday：假期，节假日，与take搭配时的短语应为take a holiday或take holidays；rest：休息，剩余部分，与take搭配时的短语应为take a rest；leave：假期，休假， take leave为固定短语，意为“请假”；vacation：假期，休假，与take搭配时的短语应为 take a vacation。故选C。

71.Football is the most popular sport around the world. People participating in the game can not only keep fit, but also make friends and gain great enjoyment. However, it may result in bloodshed from time to time due to its fierce nature: yet this cannot weaken the charm of football.
足球是全世界最受欢迎的体育运动。参加这项运动的人们不仅能保持身体 健康，还能结交朋友，获得极大的乐趣。然而，由于其激烈的特质，它可能会偶尔导致 流血事件。但这并不能减弱足球的魅力。
解析：第一句为简单句，直接顺译即可。第二句中的participating in the game为现 在分词短语，作People的后置定语；not only…but also…译为“不仅……而且……”，连 接两个并列结构。第三句包含由yet连接的表示转折关系的两个分句，直接顺译即 可；result in译为“导致”；bloodshed译为“流血事件”；from time to time译为“偶尔”； due to译为“由于”；weaken译为“减弱”。
72.The booming of Confucius Institutes in many countries shows there is a constant rise of the worldwide fervor in learning Chinese.

I soon realize the phone is just like a cigarette，which is hard to cut out．
