Autumn was coming to an end. All the insects and animals were working very hard to store enough food to last them the whole winter. They all knew that winter time would be hard — it would be cold and food would be less. As it would get dark really soon, it would be difficult to go looking for food.
Therefore, everyone was working hard except Mr. Grasshopper (蚱蜢). He loved autumn. Autumn was a beautiful time. Mr. Grasshopper spent his days playing. He jumped from leaf to leaf. "Oh, life is lovely. The world is beautiful. I want to play forever..." he sang.
Just then little Miss Ant happened to pass by. She was dragging a heavy grain of rice behind her. "This is so heavy. I wish I could get some help. I should ask my brother to go along to help me," she was muttering (发牢骚). "Oh, do you need help?" asked Mr. Grasshopper.
“Yes, sir. Would you give me a hand? My ant hill is just a few trees away, but this is so heavy," replied the ant happily. "OK. But, first you go and play with me for some time, and then I shall gladly help you. Autumn is so beautiful; you should enjoy the weather," the grasshopper said.
"No, Mr. Grasshopper. You must start collecting your food for the winter. Or it will be hard as there won't be anything to eat," said the ant.
"Nothing serious. I will go out and find all the food I want when I am hungry. Right now it is time to play," the grasshopper replied. So Miss Ant just shook her head and went on.
Then winter came. It was so cold that the ants didn't dare to go out. But they were full and they were warm and happy. Actually, everyone was warm and happy, except for Mr. Grasshopper. He was cold and hungry. As he went hunting for food only when it was less cold than usual, he got very little to eat and soon became weak with hunger.
"Oh, why did I spend my days playing? I should listen to the ant..." he thought with regret. 根据材料内容选择最佳答案。

The trees have been on the earth for millions of years Disease（疾病） is destroying trees．For example, in the 1970s, many trees in Europe were killed by disease．
This new danger attacks all the forests and woods of Europe from northern Sweden to southern Italy．First the branches turn yellow and brown．Then the trees' leaves fall．The roots and the trunk shrink（萎缩）．Finally the trees die．In the Black Forest in southern Germany, 75 %of the trees have been destroyed or killed．
Nobody knows exactly, but it is probably air pollution or acid rain（酸雨）．Factories, power stations and cars give off tons of smoke with acid into the air．Sunlight turns these into something harmful which fall with rain or snow onto the trees．
What can be done about acid rain?
Acid rain doesn't always fall on the countries which produce the pollution．The wind carries it from one country to another．Badly, the governments don' t want to spend money on it if it won’t harm the trees in their own countries．
65 The rainforests of Asia and South America are being cut down for firewood and building materials．Something must be done．If the trees die, we will, too．
A．What is killing the trees?

C．But today trees are in great danger．
D．Trees are also killed by people．
E．Now an even greater danger is destroying trees．
F. People don’t mind acid rain around their houses.

My after-school activity
Students in middle school have many kinds of after-school activities. Maybe they do sports, go hiking, watching TV or surf on the Internet. Even some students put all their free time into studying the textbook knowledge. But my after-school activity is collecting stamps. Let me tell you the reasons.
First, I can learn a lot for the stamps. There are many Chinese cultures in the stamps. When I collect them, I can learn more about my motherland and love her. Second, I can make more friends. Many students love collecting stamps. Because of the same hobbies and interests, we can talk and do the same things. Then we can be good friends. Third, collecting stamps is good for body. I have to go out of my house to buy and exchange the stamps instead of staying at home. So I have a healthy body.
In a word, collecting stamps is good for us in many ways. Why not join in it?
1. M: Excuse me. Do you know where I can exchange money?
W: Sure. Please walk along the street and turn right. The bank is next to the bookstore.
2. W: Does your cousin live on the fourth floor, Mr. White?
M: Yes, just one floor above me. It’s easy for us to take care of each other.
3. W: Hello. This is Mary.
M: Hello, Mary. This is Tom. Could you help me? I’ve tried to phone my wife several times, but
the line is busy all the time. Could you please go next door and give her a message?
4. W: Did you go to the supermarket by taxi?
M: No, that was too expensive. I took the subway there.
5. M: How long does it take you to get to your school?
W: It’s only 20 minutes’ bus drive in the morning. But coming here in the afternoon is quite
different. It often takes about 30 minutes or so.
M: Hello, Alice. Could you please come to my house this Saturday?
W: What’s up, Bill?
M: We had an English test last Thursday, but I only got 45. I need your help.
W: Do you read English aloud every day?
M: Yes, I do. But I forget most of it.
W: I think making flashcards may help you improve your English.
M: Thanks a lot. See you on Saturday.
W: See you.
W: Hello, Mike! What are you going to do tomorrow?
M: Don’t you know tomorrow is Clean-up Day?
W: Oh, if you don’t remind me, I almost forget it. Where shall we go to help?
M: We’re going to volunteer at the City Park tomorrow morning.
W: How will we go there?
M: We used to walk there or ride there. But tomorrow we’ll take a bus there. By the way, would
you like to go to the farm tomorrow afternoon?
W: That’s great. Then I can fish in the lake there.
M: I’m afraid you can’t. We go there to help the farmers pick apples on the farm.
W: Sounds not too bad.
Ann and Jim once worked in the same factory. One day, Ann lent Jim ten dollars, but then Jim left the factory and went to work in another town without paying back the money.
Ann didn’t see Jim for a year, and then she knew from another friend Dick that Jim was in another town and staying at a hotel. So she went there to see him late in the afternoon.
When she got to Jim’s room, she saw his shoes near the door. “Well, he must be in,” she thought. Then she knocked at the door and said, “I know you are in, Jim. Your shoes are out here.” “I’ve gone out in my boots,” answered Jim.
W: Why didn't you show up for the meeting this morning, Kevin?
M: Oh, Mary, I don't even want to talk about it. My car broke down.
W: What happened?
M: The engine doesn't work. It's driving me crazy!
W: Have you thought about getting a new car?
M: Yeah, I've thought about that, but I can't afford a new car.
W: Maybe you can rent a car. It doesn't cost much.
M: Good idea.
Old Henry used to be very happy. In a traffic accident, his wife and son died. He had to live alone. Old Henry always felt lonely. He was always sitting in the park, looking at the trees and doing nothing. One day, he realized he couldn’t live like that anymore. He decided to do something to make himself busy.
Now he gets up early and goes to the park to pick up some rubbish. He plants some trees and flowers around his house. He also helps his neighbors to look after their children. Sometimes he tells the children some interesting stories. All his neighbors like him. Old Henry thinks helping others is to help himself. He feels happy again.
