第一节:阅读下面短文,从每题所给的四个选项中,选出最佳选项,把答案写在答题卷上。

A

Our town is in the eastern part of our country. Once a year we elect a girl to show how beautiful and great our town is .All the girls are eager to get this position in an effort to become popular.

       It was not an easy choice this year ,since there were eight girls to choose from .The elder judge finally decided that either Sara or May would get the position .Both girls were beautiful with extraordinary appearance .Besides ,they had a good education and cared about how pollution had a bad effect on the earth .Most important ,both girls got up early to eat eggs at their breakfast .Eggs were important to people of the east because our economy depended mainly on the production of eggs.

       “Either girl will win,” my father said. “But someone will cry in the end.”

       “Either will be fine,” I said. “They are both great girls.”

       The final round was held at the east edge of our town .Sara lived nearby so she did not need to get up early to arrive .However, she was the first person there. “You know what they say about the early bird,” she said with a smile.

       However, May arrived fifteen minutes late to the competition. “It’s the taxi driver’s fault,” she said . “I told him to head east, but he was in one ear and thought I said Bread Cheese .” You know, Bread Cheese was the name of our neighboring town.

       I thought May would certainly lose because she was late ,but to my surprise ,she turned out to be this year’s winner .The judges liked her answer to their last question, “If you could have anything in the world, what would it be ?” Sara had replied, “World peace.” May, on the other hand ,said, “Better market to have our eggs sell well.”

41.Why was it difficult to make a choice this year?

       A.The girls just looked alike.

       D.she wanted to show off her good language knowledge

43.Why was May chosen in the end?

       B.Because she gave a different answer from Sara’s

       C.Because she looked more beautiful than the other girl.

 Should doctors ever lie to benefit their patients — to speed recovery or to cover the coming of death? In medicine as in law, government, and other lines of work, the requirements of honesty often seem dwarfed (变矮小)by greater needs: the need to protect from bad news or to uphold a promise of secrecy; to advance the public interest.

What should doctors say, for example, to a 46-year-old man coming in for a medical exam just before going on vacation with his family who, though he feels in perfect health ,is found to have a form of cancer that will cause him to die within six months? Is it best to tell him the truth? If he asks, should doctors lie that he is not ill? Should they at least hide the truth until after the family vacation?

Doctors face such choices often. At times, they see important reasons to lie for the patients’ own sake; in their eyes, such lies differ from self-serving ones.

Studies show that most doctors sincerely believe that the seriously ill patients do not want to know the truth about their condition. Letting them know the truth means destroying their hope, so that they may recover more slowly, perhaps even commit suicide(自杀).

But other studies show that, contrary to the belief of many physicians, a great majority of patients do want to be told the truth, even about serious illness, and feel cheated when they learn that they have been misled. We are also learning that truthful information, kind-hearted talk, helps patients deal with illness: help them overcome difficulties better, need less medicine, and even recover faster after an operation.

There is a need to debate it openly. Not only in medicine, but in other professions as well.

45. According to the author’s opinion, lies______.

 A. can benefit the patients               B. can help the patients to be healthy

C. can do nothing to the patients’ illness      D. can not benefit the patients

46. Which of the following statements is not true?

A. Most of the doctors believe that the seriously ill patients do not want to know the truth

about their condition.

B. The truthful information helps patients to deal with their illness.

C. There is a need to discuss whether to lie or not.

D. lies and self-serving ones are the same.

47. What does the author mainly discuss in the passage?

A. Telling lies is beneficial to patients.

B. Whether patients should be told the truth of their illness.

C. Whether patients really want to know the truth of their illness.

D. Who benefits from telling lies.
