“Uhhh … why would you think otherwise?” I asked. My parents exchanged another and were becoming annoyed.
“Do you think questions are a good way to train your mind to be active?” I asked.
“It the question,” said my father. “Some questions are asked for information. Those are good mind-training questions. Sometimes, people use questions to get the other person to say something. Sometimes people ask questions to get someone to agree with them.
Those questions don’t really achieve anything.”

Scientists have no idea exactly why birds choose certain objects to
build their nests. But scientists know that the main reason birds build
nests is to keep their babies safe, warm and healthy.
Baby birds grow faster and are healthier when they are warm. They
also learn to fly and leave the nests sooner than birds without warm
What A Yarn (纱)
Yarn is big on an oriole’s shopping list during nest building. Scientists are still trying to work out why so many birds choose white yarn over other colors for nest building.
Scientists think that the white objects remind birds of cotton fluff (绒毛) they find in the wild.
Do It Naturally
Even though birds can help us recycle some of our junk by using it to build nests, they also need to use lots of natural things. Long grass, dried sticks, spider’s silk and mud are some of the natural ingredients that are good for nests, too.
You can make a collection box of things to leave for birds so they can help themselves. Hang a small plastic box with holes on a tree branch. Fill the box freely with nest building goodies. Hang

I will never forget the very moment that caused me to
leave my gift behind because I wanted the gift that my older
sister Maria had.
My family was spending a week at the beach. One
morning, Maria went to the beach early, but I stayed behind to
finish a drawing of a seashell. After finishing the drawing, I walked to join Maria. She was a top gymnast (体操运动员). Her show was perfect as she wheeled along the beach. The beauty of that sight froze me, and I decided immediately that I too would become a gymnast like her.
I knew that I had never been very good at sports. However, when I told my parents I wanted to take a gymnastics class, they agreed with me in surprise. The next week, I went to a beginners’ class.
If only my parents had talked me out of this misguided plan! Five minutes into the first class, it was clear that I didn’t have the gift of a gymnast. But I kept at it.
During this time, drawing and painting—which had been my two favorites—all but left my
mind. It must have been hurting for my family as they watched my hopeless efforts. I blindly decided to be like Maria. I just would not give up.
At the same time, on the advice of Ms. White, my art teacher, I hurriedly handed in my seashell drawing for an art contest in our town. One night as I was having a hard time practicing, the phone rang. It was Ms. White. “Alice, you won the contest!” she said loudly.
“Really?” was all I could reply.
“Yes,” Ms. White said. “They’re going to give you a prize. And that’s not all. The winner is also accepted into Wildale’s Summer Fine Arts Institute.” I couldn’t believe what I heard. Only a handful of young artists were accepted each summer.
That night I didn’t go back into the living room to continue practicing. Gymnastics was Maria’s gift, not mine. It had taken me a while, but I realized that I had a gift of my own.
54. Alice wanted to be a gymnast because ________.
A. she had been good at sports C. she hated drawing and painting A. Satisfied. C. Hopeful B. her sister’s show was perfect D. her parents wanted her to do so B. Worried. D. Regretful. 55. How did Alice feel about learning gymnastics at last? 56. From the story, we can infer that ________. A. Alice’s parents disagreed with her choice of gymnastics B. Alice did not realize her gift in drawing and painting at first C. Alice spent a hard time preparing for the art contest in the town D. Alice couldn’t believe the news that she got the prize for painting A. We should value our own gifts. C. We could develop different gifts.
Many people think sports are just for winning and honor, but there is a lot more you can gain from (get out of) them. I have learned over the past years that sometimes when I lose, I get a lot more out of it than winning. Also, I find a lot of times in sports, people are getting too caught up in the game instead of just having fun. The real purpose of sports is to have fun and learn life lessons along the way.
I greatly encourage you to be a part of the school sports. Even if you are not the best, you can still have fun. Sports give people a great and healthy way of spending an afternoon, instead of

B. It takes time to find one’s gifts. D. It’s never too late to show our gifts.
lying around playing video games or even getting into bad things. Sports also give us a sense of achievement. There isn’t a better feeling than to have done something fun and productive for my day.
I think that we all need sports to give us courage. If we try hard in sports, we usually do well. If we did the same in study, we would all be champions. Another reason why I encourage you to play sports is that it’s just fun. Without sports, our lives would just be boring. So as you may be able to tell, sports are amazing!
Our coaches not only teach us to play sports, but show class and good sportsmanship while playing them. It’s never fun when you lose to have the competitor rub it in your face. That’s why our coaches teach us to show class when we lose; also, when coaches don’t get down. They only want to see you improve and learn from what they say. When you do badly and they don’t shout loudly is when you should start worrying because they are giving up on you. Overall, sports are great! They bring out the best and worst of a lot of us. However, we can’t let sports get too serious to where it brings down all the fun. So to have the most fun in sports, you just need try your best and not worry so much about the winning or losing.

I was born in the computer age. adults when the first personal computer came out. But with the
development of technology, more
jobs need skills like typing,
sending e-mails, etc.
7 / 12
When I was in middle school, they started asking me to help them do things with computers. the phone whenever there was something wrong with our computer.
After realizing my parents really need my help, I tried to be more understanding. After all, I wasn’t born knowing how to use a computer. We can communicate more and share understanding.
I know it’s usually hard for adults to learn new skills. And a patient teacher is helpful for them.
On a very hot day, it is hard to know what to do to feel
good. If you run around, you may feel sick in your stomach.
However, if you just sit quietly and do nothing, you may feel
bored. Are there things you can do to feel good and have fun
when you’re hot?
Perhaps playing in water is a good choice to make you
cool down. Taking a cool bath or shower, or even washing toys in a pan of cool water can also make you feel good on a hot day. Besides, you can read stories or paint in front of a fan. You don’t need to move your body very much. These are just some of the cool things to do on a hot day.
In addition, it’s important for you to drink water. On hot days, you can lose about 16 glasses of water in one day. If you feel thirsty, you are already short of water. So don’t wait for thirst before you start to drink. You should try to drink as much water as you lose every day. Mixing a little fruit juice into your water is a fun way to help you drink plenty of water.
The food you eat also makes a difference in how you feel in the heat. Cold foods such as ice cream and drinks with some ice can cool down your bodies. Fruits and vegetables are also helpful
to stay cool in hot weather. So plan a healthy menu for a hot day---one that doesn’t need any cooking.

75. One possible version:
I have met a lot of people in my school life. One of them is my good friend Emma. She is the best friend I’ve made in the class, who is always there for me when I am in need of help.
Recently, I found myself getting upset easily. I often complained about the stress and even couldn’t concentrate on studies. Emma noticed my problem and spent two hours with me one day, talking about her own stress and how she was dealing with difficulties. From her, I learnt that the only way to beat difficulties is keeping trying instead of complaining. And I felt much more confident to fight against them together with Emma.
