What is the population of China? There are more than 1.3 billion people in China. It is one fifth of the world’s population. How to control the population growth is a big problem. Some people think it is to control the population growth. But I don’t quite agree The question is how we could it known to erevyone how serious the population problem is. Our farmland is becoming less and less to everyone. We have already got too many mouths to feed. we control the population growth, many people will die hunger. Too fast population growth has been and will be bad for our nation. Though laws have been passed to control the population growth, in some places that it is foolish of them to bring too many children into the world. They shall no longer do what they have been doing for years.
We are fighting too fast population growth. Yet the fighting won’t end everyone knows its importance and does something for it.

Should calligraphy（书法）be taught at school?
Although we are in an information age, most things can be found or done on computer. Still we should go back to handwriting by using a brush and ink. Some people think students should study calligraphy at school. Calligraphy is part of our old
culture. It dates back to early times. Traditional Calligraphy is well worth learning. Chinese need to carry on with it. What’s more, calligraphy is fine art, more than writing. Written Chinese is well known for its beauty. For example, every stroke（笔画）of a character shows richness. feeling, energy and so on. Even foreigners enjoy looking at it for its beauty. If you are good at it, it certainly a way of self-cultivation（自我陶冶）. It often helps build up one’s personality. Are you going to learn it soon?

( ) 2. Calligraphy is part of Chinese culture.
( ) 3. There is nothing in Chinese writing.

( ) 5. The writer thinks that calligraphy should be taught at school.
An important question about eating outside is who pays for the meal. If a friend of yours asks you to have lunch with him, you may say something like this, ―I’m afraid of it,I’ll have to be some place cheap, because I have very little money .‖The other person may say, ― OK, I’ll meet you at McDonald’s.‖ This means that these two persons agree to ―go Dutch‖, that is, each person pays for himself. He may also say, ―Oh, no. I want to take you to lunch at Smith’s,‖ or ―I want you to try the Chinese dumplings there. They’re great.‖ This means the person wants to pay for both of you. If you feel friendly towards this person, you can go with him and you needn’t pay for the meal. You may just say, ―Thank you.‖ That would be very nice.
American customs（风俗） about who pays for dates（约会） are much the same as in other parts of the world. In the old days, American women wanted men to pay for all the meals. But, today, a university girl or a woman in business world will usually pay her way during the day. If a man asks her for a dance outside the working hours, it means ―Come, as my guest（客人）.‖ So as you can see, it is a polite thing to make the question clear at the very beginning.

How to get rid of (除掉) waste is a great problem for the world today. Waste must be
so that it does not become a to life.
Unfortunately, in some countries waste from is still poured straight into river. People
who use the water from one of these often get sick. The water may become so polluted
that it kills all the in the river, when this river finally reaches the sea, it the ocean.
In many countries with sea coasts, human waste is piped into the sea being
treated. This is unsafe. Although the sea breaks up the waste, beaches may become polluted and
fish may not be to eat. A method (方法) is to take the waste far out to sea in ships
where the wind and waves break it down.

The“green”car has become popular in recent years. A green car is an environmentally friendly car.
Today, most cars are powered by petrol (汽油). They make our lives easier. But cars have also made problems for the environment.
There are a few new types of cars that don’t use petrol.
Electric cars: This car uses a battery for power. When you’re not driving it. Just plug it in like a mobile phone to power up the battery. They don’t make exhaust（排放物）. But car makers still can’t make a battery that lasts for more than a few hours. That’s why electric cars aren’t very popular.
Fuel cell cars（燃料电池车）: Fuel cells use hydrogen（氢）and oxygen to make power. The only exhaust they produce is clean water. But fuel cells are still much too expensive to make.
Solar cars: This kind of car has large panels（吸热板）on top that take power from the sun’s light. The car holds that power in a battery. Solar cars might be the cleanest of all. But no one uses them, because solar panels can’t get enough power from the sun to make a car go for a long time. Also they are very slow.
Hybrid cars: This kind of car is the most exciting kind, because it is very clean and not too expensive. The idea behind a hybrid car is very smart: Half the time, it uses petrol, and half the time it uses a battery. So when the petrol engine is working, it puts some of its power back into the battery. It uses much less petrol than other cars.
