shaking it means disagreement. In China and some English-speaking countries, these body movements have the

same meanings.

But not all body languages mean the same things in different countries. For example, nodding the head in some Asian countries means not “Yes.”, but “No. ”

In Russia, France and some of South American countries men kiss(吻) each other when they meet. Men don’t kiss each other in China or English-speaking countries.

We have always been interested in the moon. 2000 years ago people already knew it moved around the


375教育资源网 http://www.375edu.cn 中小学试卷、教案、课件免费下载

earth and where it would be in the sky at different times of the year. At that time, everything about the moon was learned by watching it carefully in the sky.

When scientists could use telescopes to study the moon more closely, their ideas began to change. They could see the moon was made of rocks. Most scientists thought moon rocks would be different from those on Earth. This was because they believed the moon had once been a planet that had been caught in the earth’s gravity (引力) millions of years earlier.

In 1969 moon rocks were finally brought to the earth and studied. Much to their surprise, scientists found that, except for water, the moon and the earth were made of the same things. Once again new ideas were needed for this new information.

After years of study, most scientists now think that the moon was once part of Earth. They believe very early in its history, maybe 4 million years ago, something about the size of Mars hit Earth. This sent billions of rocks into space around our planet. These rocks slowly joined together and after many years became the moon.

In the future, even though our ideas about the moon may change again, we will still be interested in it.

54. What does the writer want to tell us in the passage?

A. Why people are interested in the moon.

B. How ideas about the moon have changed over time.

C. Where the moon came from in the past.

D. That people have finally learned the truth about the moon.

55. Before 1969 most scientists thought the moon was ________.

A. part of the earth billions of years earlier B. older than the earth

C. a planet caught by the earth’s gravity D. made of the same things as the earth

56. From this passage we can learn that ________.

A. scientists in the past were not clever B. the earth was once part of the moon

C. new information brings new ideas D. we now know everything about the moon


It is said that as the population of a city grows, so do its problems. Pollution, too many cars, and crowded streets are just a few of these difficulties. One way to help with these problems is city trains. Trains traveling to different parts of a city mean fewer cars and buses on our roads, cleaner air, and more open streets. In recent years, cities such as Guangzhou, Shenzhen and Shanghai have all built city train lines.

The first city train line in China was built in Beijing. The oldest part of the train line, from Beijing Zhan to Ping Guo Yuan was opened in 1969. Its length was 23.6 kilometres. As the city grew after 1980, so did the need for more trains. A newer train line was built to help move people around the city centre. The


375教育资源网 http://www.375edu.cn 中小学试卷、教案、课件免费下载

16-kilometre-long “circle (环形) line” was finished in 1987. Since that time even more train stations have been built and today the train lines in the city are over 50 kilometres long.

For the 2008 Olympic Games, the trains of Beijing will be very important. It is thought that most of the people who go to watch the different sports during the Games will travel using trains. 57. The passage tells us about ________.
