在某个时间点这样的小时间里用介词at, 例如： at 8:00, at noon (中午12点)，at midnight(子夜12点)，at lunch time (在午餐12点左右)，at the same time, at the end of March (三月末是三月的某个时间点)，at the beginning of August (八月初是八月的某个时间点), at the age of five (5岁是漫长一生中的某个时间点)。

Sunday, on Monday morning, on Tuesday evening
in the day (在白天)

in the morning /the afternoom /the evening
on a warm morning/afternoon/evening (早、中、晚前面有形容词作定语修饰)

①My car is (A.more expensive B.higher)than his.
②The price of my car is (A.cheaper B.lower )than that of his.
③China has (A.more B.larger )people than India.
④The population of India is (A.fewer B.smaller)than that of China.
要做对这几道题，请谨记下面的口诀：物质论贵贱(expensive/cheap)，价格论高低(high/low), 人口论大小(large/small), 人们才论多和少(many/few)
四道题正确回答是：1.A 2.B 3.A 4.B
1) too??to 是肯定句，因为没有否定词，所以它不是否定句，它是用肯定句表达否定的意思。
例如：he is too young to go to school.(肯定句)
The box is too heavy for me to carry.(肯定句)
又如：you are never too young to start doing things. (否定句，因为有否定词never)
We are never too old to learn. (否定句，因为有否定词)
2) 在too??to句型里，主语一般是人或物；若是it，往往不是too??to 句型
The question is too diffiuut for me to answer. (too??to句型)
It is too/very difflicult for me to answer the question. (it 作形式主语，动词不定式作真正主语) He is too heavy to do the job. (too??to句型) It is too/very dangerous for him to do the job. (it 作形式主语，动词不定式作真正主语)
3) 动词后面是否加宾语要慎重。The box is too heavy for me to carry it. it 不能要,因为the box 既作主语，同时也作carry的逻辑上的宾语。同理在The question is too hard for me to answer it. 句子里，it一定要去掉。
He is too young to dress himself.
She is too young to look after herself.
himself/herself 这样的反身代词一般不能省，不然指代不明，因为如果没有himself, 我们就不知道他给谁穿衣，如果没有herself, 我们就不知道她照看谁。

Careful and careless are as different as fire and water.But strangely enough,many scientists are both careful and careless.Newton,the famous English scientist,was such a person.
Once Newton invited a friend to dinner at home. When they were ready to eat, Newton left to get a bottle of drink. But after his friend had waited for a long time, Newton still didn’t come back. Finally his friend found Newton in his lab. The reason was that when Newton was going to get the bottle of drink, he suddenly had a new idea for the experiment he was doing, so he completely forgot his friend and the dinner. There was another time when Newton was leading a horse up a mountain, holding the rein(缰 5
绳)in his hand. While he got to the top of the mountain, he found that the rein was not in his hand and that the horse was gone.
Among scientists, there are many people like Newton. Einstein was one. Once he was waiting for a friend at a brigde. While waiting, he became lost in thought. It started to rain. The rain kept on for some time. When Einstein took out a piece of paper from his pocket to write something down, the paper was wet and he then realized that it was raining. His clothes had become completely wet. But after he put the paper into his pocket, he again forgot he was standing in the rain.

No two people are just the same. Sometimes friends don’t get along well. That doesn’t mean that 6
they no longer like each other. Most of the time they will make up and go on being friends.
Sometimes friends move away. Then we feel very sad. We miss them very much. But we can call them and write to them. It could be that we even see them again. And we can make new friends. It is surprising to find out how much we like new people when we get to know them.
Families sometimes name their children after a close friend. Many places are named after men and women who have been friendly to people in a town. Some libraries are named this way. So are some schools. We think of these people when we go to these places.
There’s more good news for people who have friends. They live longer than people who don’t. Why? It could be that they are happier. Being happy helps you stay well. Or it could be just knowing that someone cares. If someone cares about you, you take better care of yourself.
