Scientists say that people are the only animals that can cry. We cry when we are sad, when we are happy. We cry for thousands of different reasons. When someone dies, we cry. When a baby is born, we cry too. But crying is mystery( 难解的谜). What are tears? Where do they come? Why do we get them? Modern science does not have all the answers to these questions.
There are two different kinds of tears—emotional（情感的）tears and reflex(本能反应的) tears. Emotional tears come from feelings, happiness or sadness. Reflex tears are the kind that comes when we get a piece of dirt in the eye. But nobody knows where tears come from. William Frey is studying tears. Frey’s study shows that women cry more often than men. However, his study does not tell us why women cry more. He also has a theory about why people cry, but it is only a theory, and he has not proved it yet. Crying can remove the poisons(毒素) produced by emotional stress（紧张）or physical stress in the body and helps people stay healthy.
Psychologists(心理学家) also believe that crying is good for you. They say it helps reduce stress. Stress can cause high blood pressure（高血压）, heart disease, and other illness. Crying can help prevent these illnesses and keep us well. For our health and happiness, it may be good for all of us, men and women, to have a good cry more often.

E) Answer the questions (根据短文内容回答下列问题)：（14分）
Afternoon tea, which is associated with（与...联系在一起）English people, is
considered to be an integrated (融合的) part of their life. It is a light meal or a snack
traditionally served around 4 p.m.between lunch and dinner. Afternoon tea usually includes
scones (烤饼)，sandwiches, biscuits, and many kinds of cakes.
Drinking tea in the afternoon first became popular around 1840. A Duchess (公爵夫人)
called Anna first introduced afternoon tea in England. It was said that the Duchess often
became hungry at around four o’clock, because at that time dinner was served at eight
o’clock. On one occasion, the Duchess asked servants to bring tea, bread and butter,
sandwiches and cakes to her room at 4 p.m. This became her habit and she soon began inviting friends to join her. Queen Victoria in the 19th century strongly supported the idea, and afternoon tea soon grew popular across England. Indeed, Queen Victoria was well-known for her craziness about tea. She threw her tea cup across the room if she found the tea not up to standard(达到标准上层社会)，afternoon tea became a fashionable social event where they would change into long gowns (礼服)，gloves and hats for afternoon tea.
Traditionally afternoon tea consists of many delicious pastries(糕点). Tea is brewed(泡) and poured from silver teapots into delicate (精致) 瓷杯). Today, however, an afternoon tea is likely to be just a piece of bread, biscuit and a mug of tea or just a cup of tea using a tea bag.
99. Is afternoon tea thought to be a part of English people’s life?
100. Who first introduced afternoon tea in England?
101. When did drinking tea in the afternoon first become popular?
102. What did the Duchess ask servants to do?
103. Why did Queen Victoria strongly support the idea?
