Do you know why different animals or pests(害虫) have their special colours? Colours in them seem to be used mainly to protect themselves.
Some birds like eating locusts（蝗虫）. but birds cannot easily catch them. Why? It is because locusts change their colours together with the change of the colours of crops. When crops are green, locusts look green. But as the harvest time comes, locusts change to the same brown colour as crops have. Some other pests with different colours from plants are easily found and eaten by others. So they have to hide themselves for lives and appear only at night.
If you study the animal life, you’ll find the main use of colouring is protecting themselves. Bears, lions and other animals move quietly through forests. They cannot be seen by hunters（猎人）. This is because they have the colours much like the tree.
Have you ever noticed an even more strange act? A kind of fish in the sea can send out a kind of very black liquid（液体） when it faces danger. While the liquid spread over, the enemies（敌人） cannot find it. And it at once swims away. So it has lived up to now though it isn’t strong at all.
36. From the passage we learn that locusts ___ .
A. are small animals B. are easily found by birds
C. are dangerous to their enemies D. change their colours to protect themselves
37. How can pests with different colours from plants keep out of danger?

I was born in New York, but I grew up in San Francisco. I began to live in London 25 years ago. If I am asked now where I want to live forever, I would say London. But I will always be American.
San Francisco, like London, has many parks. Every day my sisters and I were taken to play in the parks as children. I didn’t go to school. I only had three hours of formal education when I was five. I was sent to school in the morning but came home at noon on the first day. I said I didn’t enjoy it and hadn’t learned anything. My parents thought that school was unsuitable for me. They agreed with me, so I never went back to school.
Then my mother taught me and my two sisters at home, in the way of an English lady who had good education. We learned languages and reading more than sciences and maths. Sometimes she taught us herself, but we also had other teachers. They asked us to take lessons every day. About once a week we walked to Golden Gate Park. While we were walking, my mother taught me to read music. One day I noticed a little toy train in the window of a shop and I remember now how I’d like to have it. I couldn’t say “r” when I was small. My mother said if I could say an “r” well, I would have the toy train. I practiced and practiced. Then one morning I woke everybody up with my “r”s. I got the toy train. I usually get the things I want in life — but I work hard for them.

When most people think of the Olympics, they don’t think of science. But in the USA, each year, students take part in a kind of competition called the Science Olympiad.
It has a lot of different events. Students go there to show how much they know about the science of music, biology, chemistry and others. My best event is forestry (森林学). This time, I went to
the Olympiad with my school’s team. We had worked hard, but this was the state competition. It would be hard to win.
The Olympiad was out of town, so we got to ride on a bus and stay in a hotel for a night. The Olympiad was in three big rooms. When we got there, we set up our team’s “camp” off to one side. The big day had come at last! First, I went to watch the tower building competition. That’s when students build small towers and put heavy things on top of it. They hope they can hold them up. One of my schoolmates was putting things on her tower. She was nervous, and in the end it was too heavy for her tower to hold it—it broke! I felt bad for her. After lunch, I helped some teammates with their events. One was geography, and the other was history. I don’t know much about those things, so I just watched my teammates do most of the work. At last, it was time for my favorite event—forestry. Another student was also in the forestry event. The rules were easy. We had to look at more than 40 different kinds of leaves and find out which plants they were from. We also had to answer some questions about the uses of each leaf. I knew almost all of the leaves and could answer most of the questions. I had spent more than a month studying on the Internet to get ready. At the end, it was time for the awards (颁奖), l was nervous, because the forestry awards were last. We won second place in the whole state! A nice man gave me a medal and smiled at me.
I had a great time at the Science Olympiad. I can’t wait for next year!

Each year there is an increasing number of cars on roads and streets as millions of new cars are produced.One out of every six Americans works at putting together the parts of cars,driving trucks,building roads or filling cars with gas.Americans won’t live without cars!
Most Americans find it hard to think what life would be without a car.However,some have realized the serious problem of air pollution by cars.The polluted air is poisonous(有毒的)and dangerous to health.
One way to get rid of(排除)the polluted air is to build a new kind of car.That’s what several of the large car factories are trying to do.But to build a clean car is easier said than done.Progress in this field has been slow.
Another way is to take the place of the car engine(发动机)by something else.Engineers are now working on some new cars.Many markers believe that it will take years to develop a practical model that pleases man.
To prevent the world from being polluted by cars,we’ll have to make some changes in the way many of us live.Americans,for example,have to cut down on the number of their cars.They are encouraged to travel and go to work by bike.Riding a bike is thought to help keep the air clean. But this change does not come easily—a large number of workers may find themselves without jobs if a car factory closed down.And the problem of air pollution would become less important than that of unemployment(失业).
Although cars have brought us a better life,they have also brought us new problems.

Smile is an attitude to life. In our life, there may be something unpleasant. For example, you fail in an exam; or another time,you are misunderstood by your friends. These unpleasant things may
make you feel sad. Then what will you do? Why not learn to smile? Smiling to yourself can bring back your confidence. Sometimes, the greatest enemy is yourself; that’s to say, sometimes, you are beaten by yourself. We should also learn to smile to others. It will help us to get closer to others. So, smile is the most widely understood language.

One Sunday morning, I decided to buy a computer to use for school. I went to the biggest store in town, which sold all kinds of computers. There were so many computers there that I didn’t know how to choose a right one.
“Hi! What can I do for you?” A young man greeted me with a sweet smile. He looked like not a
salesman but a student like me. I sensed a strange feeling—as if I had met him before. He began patiently showing me each model. With his help, I decided to buy one computer with enough functions at a very low price. I enjoyed this shopping experience because of his smile. A few months later, something was wrong with my computer. I went back to the store to have it fixed. When I arrived there, what I saw first was still his smile. As soon as I told him my problem, he comforted me immediately and tried his best to solve the problem for me. I was quite grateful to him for his sweet smile and good service.
When I went back to school, his smile often appeared in my mind. I don’t know whether we’ll meet each other again, but his sweet smile will stay there in my memory and deep in my heart. Smiling is the most peaceful language in the daily life.

1 The family planning policy（“计划生育”政策）was introduced in 1979 to solve the population problems. Most couples could have only one child except some special families and those in some special areas.
2 Usually, all around good student, which was called “thrice good”, was given to the students who were virtuous(品德高尚的), talented and good at PE. It was firstly used in to 1950s by Mao to encourage young people to keep fit, study well and work hard.
3 During the early 1990s, state owned company reforms(国有企业改革) were getting tough. The workers were more than the jobs in most of the cities. Many workers were losing their jobs. “Jobless” was a hot topic at that time, so the leaders hoped the laid off workers could find new jobs or start up their own business.
4 One of Dengs clever ideas, “one country, two systems”, was first performed in 1997. It described Hong Kong and Macao’s situation after they returned to China. This policy would also be suitable for Taiwan. There would be one China, but Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan could have their own economies and political systems.
5 Lei Feng was a soldier who was happy to help others. He died in an accident in 1962. On March 5th,1963, Mao wrote a piece, “Learn from comrade Lei Feng”, to say the Chinese should help others when necessary. After that, March 5th became a Volunteer Day.
6 The phrase “harmonious society” appeared in 2004, referring to a peaceful society where all people would work together to make the life better. This idea has become the main goal of the Chinese Communist Party now.
( )69. The first paragraph is mainly talking about_______.

If we want to deal with the association(社交) between boys and girls properly, here are some “dos and don’ts” for you to follow.
Keep a normal and healthy state of mind. Our schools and classes are made up of boys and girls. It is very nature for the boys and girls to make friends with each other. We should make as many friends as possible. We should keep touch with the other sex(性别) in public instead of in secret.
Don’t be too nervous or too shy. If you are a shy person, you can also find a way out. First of all, you can make friend with the students who have the same interest and hobby as you. As both of you have much in common, you may have much to talk about. If you keep doing like that, little by little, you will gladly find you are also as free to express yourself as others.
Don’t fall into the ditch (泥潭)of early love. The boys and girls at a adolescence (青春期) are rich in feeling. They are easy to regard the friendship as a sign of love and fall in love with each other at an early age. In my opinion, early love is a green apple that can’t be eaten. An apple won’t taste sweet until it is full ripe. Boys and girls at middle school are too young to carry the heavy duty of love. Do keep out of early love.
( )73. The main idea of the passage is to _______.
A. tell students to keep away from early love
B. give some advice on how to associate between boys and girls
C. tell students how to make friends
D. teach boys how to talk with girls
( )74. We should keep touch with the other sex in following ways EXCEPT _______.
A. with a good state of mind B. in real friendship C. in public D. in secret
( )75. If you are a shy person, you can ________.
A. find friends with the same interest and hobby first
B. only have a few friends of the same sex
C. not make friends with the other sex
D. not fall in love with other students easily
( )76. A person at adolescence is ________.
A. complicated(复杂的)in feelings B. good at making friends with each other
C. old enough to fall in love D. easy to regard the friendship as a sign of love D
In the West, some people believe that personality can be predicted (预报) according to the time of the year the person was born. From China comes the belief that the year of birth influences
one’s personality. In the past century, a new belief has arisen: the idea that personality is related to one’s ABO blood type. People with blood type A, for example, are considered more likely to be serious, hard-working, and quiet, while people with blood type O are likely to be popular and outgoing, yet often unable to finish what they start. Though this belief continues to be strong, some people question whether it is true.
The blood-type personality theory (理论) started in Japan in 1927 when Furukawa Takehji noticed personality similarities and differences among his workers. The idea soon went out of fashion, but was brought back by a Japanese television host named Toshitaka Nomi in the 1970s. The belief is still strong in Japan and is increasingly popular in neighboring countries. Some young Koreans have taken to the theory. A recent study showed 76 percent of Koreans aged between13 and 64 believing in the blood-type personality connection. Though most Asians might believe in the blood-type theory, for many it seems harmless and not something to be taken too seriously.
Is the belief true? The scientists in Asia largely dismiss the belief as a modern-day superstition (迷信). Most studies have failed to find any strong connection between blood and personality. Generally, scientists warn against making predictions (预报) or important decisions based on this questionable theory.
( )77. The writer uses blood type A and O as an example to explain ________.
A. the difference between two blood types
B. the relationship between the two blood types
C. the influence of blood type on one’s behavior
D. the connection between personality and blood type
( )78. What does the underlined sentence in Paragraph 2 mean?
A. It was lightly believed. B. It was brought to them.
C. They liked and accepted it. D. They stole the idea from others.
( )79. Which of the following is true according to the passage?
A. Most scientists in Asia don’t believe in the theory.
B. The blood-type theory began in Japan in the 1970s.
C. The blood-type personality theory is about blood type.
D. People don’t change their personality to match the theory.
( )80. What is the best title for the passage?
A. Is the blood-type theory poplar? B. Is the personality changeable?
C. Is it in your blood? D. Is it in you mind?
The world is an interesting place. Different people like different things. Some people like loud music. Other people don’t. 81._______
Many people like sports, but they do not all like the same sports. In some countries, cricket(板球运动) is a very popular sport. In others it is not popular at all. No one plays it or watches it on TV. However, most people like cocker. The World Cup is very popular. 82._______.
Different people like different foods. Some people do not like meat. 83.______ Some people do not like potatoes or bread. They prefer rice.
84._______ Most people have their favorite colors. Some people like bright colors. Others prefer pale colors.
Many people like traveling. Different people like different places. Some people like to go to the country. They like the fresh air. Some people like to go to the cities. Because they like shopping.
What do you like? Have you got an idea?
A. They like soft music.
B. Not everyone likes the same color.
C. Millions of people watch the game on TV.
D. Different people like different kinds of pets.
E. They eat fruit and vegetables most of the time.
F. So they don’t raise pigs in their countries.
G. Some other people enjoy beautiful places like the mountains or beaches.

I’ll tell a story about the Internet. The Internet is used for many things---shopping, reading, watching videos and chatting. Kyle MacDonald, a 26-year-old man from Canada, used his blog to make his dream come true. At that time Kyle was out of work. He wanted to own a house. On his blog, he said that all he had was one red paperclip and he asked people to exchange it with him. First, someone exchanged a fish pen for it. Then the exchange continued. Free rent for a year, a day with rock star Alice Cooper?Kyle did exchanges 14 times. The house was offered to him by the people of Kipling, Canada. He gave him the house in exchange for a role in a Hollywood movie. Kyle became famous because of his blog. And he has appeared on TV and had many stories written about him.
Hello, everyone! I would like to tell you about a small island in Australia. I visited it last year. Before we see the video, let me tell you something about the island. It is called Duck Island. And the easiest way to get to the island is to take a plane from the International Airport at Cain on the mainland. It takes you forty-five minutes. Most of the land is covered in forest, and it is very beautiful. There is only one place, a hotel, to stay in. It has 160 rooms, and it is right on the beach. There are many trees around the hotel. It has a very good kids club for 15 to 16 years old. The club has activities such as beach volleyball and water sports.
These are things for all people to do, too---boat trips, deep-sea diving lessons and so on.

Cooking is fun
Why is cooking fun? Here are two reasons.
First, it is a good way to show my love to my parents. Both my parents are very busy. So when I come back home early, I’11 cook for them. After they return ，we sit together and enjoy the meal. I can see them smile happily.
Second, it is a kind of creation. I always try to cook different dishes. When my new dish is praised by others, I feel proud.
I like cooking. It brings me a lot of fun.
