Jupiter’s Moons and How They Travel
The many moons of Jupiter travel around the planet in different directions (方向).
Jupiter is the largest planet in our solar system. Over the years, scientists have found that Jupiter has its own small solar system. Earth has one moon. Jupiter has at least sixteen and probably more.
Since there are so many moons, scientists began to number them. The numbers tell the order (顺序), in which the moons were found. They were slower to name the moons. All of Jupiter’s moons now have a name as well as a number.
The first five moons to be discovered are known as the “inner moons”. But they are not the closest to the planet. The closest is only 127,600 kilometers away from Jupiter. All the inner
moons travel around the planet in counter-clockwise direction, that is, opposite of the hands of a clock.
Jupiter’s middle group of moons are at least 11,100,000 kilometers from the planet. They also move in a counter-clockwise motion (moving). The four farthest moons are at least 20,700,000 kilometers away. These are called “outer moons”. They travel in a clockwise motion, that is, the same direction as the hands of a clock.
How many more moons do you think will be discovered？
6. The words “solar system” in this paragraph mean______ in Chinese.
A. 银河系 B. 宇宙空间 C. 流星雨 D. 太阳系
7. Things that travel in the same direction as the hands of a clock are said to be traveling in a______.
A. clockwise direction B. counter-clockwise direction
C. same direction D. different direction

I had just gone to bed after a very hard day when the phone rang. It was an eccentric (怪僻的) farmer. I had often heard people talk about him, but I had never met him before.

It had been snowing heavily that day and I didn’t know the way. I had been driving for at least an hour when I finally found his place. He was standing there, waiting for me. It seemed that Milly had died. “She meant more to me than anyone …even my life!” he said. I could see that he had been crying. I thought something terrible had happened, a possible scandal (丑闻). I was even more surprised when he told me he had put her in the barn (马厩). “I wouldn’t leave her out in the cold!” he said.
Milly had clearly been a secret lover of him. I was about to tell him he could not expect me to cover anything up when he opened the barn door.

IX. 任务型阅读 （5分）请根据短文内容完成下列表格。
Tokyo is one of those places that you can love and hate at the same time.
The first “fact” about Tokyo, for me, is that there are too many people. I don’t mean the fact that twelve million people live there. I mean there are always too many people in the places where I want to go. In the streets near the Ginza in Tokyo there are always a lot of people on foot, and sometimes it is really difficult to walk. That is an important fact for me.
Of course there are too many cars. The Japanese drive them very fast when they can, but in Tokyo they often spend a long time in traffic jams (交通拥塞).
The worst time to be in the street is at 11:30 at night. That is when nightclubs are closing and everybody wants to go home. There are 35,000 nightclubs in Tokyo, and I don’t often see one that is empty. Between 11 and 12 everybody is looking for a taxi. Usually the taxi is shared by four or five people who live in the same part of the city.
I really hope that all these problems can be solved (解决) some day.

October 1st, Monday Fine Today is National Day. Early in the morning, my parents and I went to Tian’anmen Square to watch our national flag rise.

It is 880 metres long from north to south and 500 metres wide at the northern end. When I saw our national flag rising slowly, I was very excited. I made up my mind to study even harder.
