In Canada you can find in almost every family dogs, cats, horses and so on. These are their pets. People love these pets and regard them as their good friends. Before they keep them at their houses, they take them to animal hospitals to give them medical exams so that they won’t carry disease.
They have special animal food stores, though they can get animal food in almost every store. Some people spend around two hundred Canadian dollars a month on animal food.
You will also find almost every family has a bird feeder(食盒) on the tall tree in their garden. All kinds of birds are welcome to come and have a good meal. They are free to come and go and you can see many kinds of beautiful birds at the windows. Nobody is allowed to kill any animals in Canada. They have a law against killing wild animals.

When and why do we become angry at your friends? According to a group of scientists, the reason may be that our friends ask us to do more than what we can do. Sometimes, we are even angrier at our friends, because they ask us to do things we don’t want to do at all! When we don’t like our friends, we have bad emotion (情绪), and too much unwanted emotion can give something bad to our body. So we should be very careful in facing our bad emotion.
When we are asked to do things by our bosses, we simply do it. Usually we do not feel too much, because we have to do it anyway. However, when we are asked to do unwanted things by our friends, we are getting burnt. Because they are our friends, we feel that they shouldn’t treat us like that. They shouldn’t make us do things. But
6 / 12
when they did do so, we feel that we are cheated. That is why we are easily angry at our friends.
What can we do to make the bad feelings go away? Well, we can do some activities such as painting, reading, or dancing. Then later, when we are not so angry, we should find a chance to talk to our friend about our feeling. If they are really our friends—and indeed(的确) they are—they would listen to us.
53. Why do we become angry at our friends?

Most people around the world are right-handed. This also seems to be true in history. In 1799, scientists studied works of art made at different times from 1,500 B.
C. to the 1950s. Most of the people shown in these works are right-handed, so the scientists guessed that right-handedness has always been common through history. Today, only about 10% to 15% of the world’s population is left-handed.
Why are there more right-handed people than left-handed ones? Scientists now know that a person’s two hands each have their own jobs. For most people, the hand is used to find things or hold things. The right hand is used to work with things. This is because of the different work of the two sides of the brain(脑). The right side of the brain, which makes a person’s hands and eyes work together, controls(控制) the left hand. The left-side of the brain, which controls the right hand, is the centre for thinking and doing problems. These findings show that more artists should be left-handed, and studies have found that left-handedness is twice as common among artists as among people in other jobs.
No one really knows what makes a person become right-handed instead of left-handed. Scientists have found that almost 40% of the people become left-handed because their main brain is damaged(伤害) when they are born. However, this doesn't happen to everyone, so scientists guess there must be another reason why people become left-handed. One idea is that people usually get right-handed from their parents. If a person does not receive the gene(基因)for right-handedness, he/she may
7 / 12
become either right-handed or left-handed according to the chance and the people they work or live with.
Though right-handedness is more common than left-handedness, people no longer think left-handed people are strange or unusual. A long time ago, left-handed children were made to use their right hands like other children, but today they don't have to.
56. After studying works of art made at different times in history, the scientists found ____________.
A. the art began from 1,500 B. C.
B. the works of art ended in the 1950s
C. most people shown in the works of art are right-handed
D. most people shown in the works of art are left-handed
57. How many people in the world are left-handed now?
A. Less than one sixth. B. More than a half.
C. About 40%. D. The passage doesn’t tell us.
58. According to the passage, which of the following is NOT true?
A. No one really knows what makes a person become right-handed.
B. Scientists think there must be some reason why people become left-handed.
C. Today children are not made to use their right hands only.
D. Left-handedness is cleverer than right-handedness.
59. What is the best title for this passage?
A. Left-handed People B. Scientists’ New Inventions
C. Which Hand D. Different Brains, Different Hands
Life is like the four seasons. Now I am very old, but when I was young, it was the spring of my life. I was born, I played a lot, and then I started school. I learned many new things. ___60___ There were happy days and sad days: some days the sun shone, and some days it didn’t.

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 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.
