Have you ever heard of birds that can swim? Along the river banks of the Amazon and the Orinoco there lives a bird that swims before it can fly, flies like a fat chicken, eats green leaves, has the stomach of a cow and has claws (爪) on its wings when young. They build their homes about 4.6m above the river, an important feature (特征) for the safety of the young. It is called the hoatzin. In appearance, the birds of both sexes look very much alike with brown on the back and cream and red on the underside. The head is small, with a large set of feathers on the top, bright red eyes, and blue skin. Its nearest relatives are the common birds, cuckoos. Its most striking feature, though, is only found in the young. Baby hoatzins have a claw on the leading edge of each wing and another at the end of each wing
tip. Using these four claws, together with the beak (喙), they can climb about in the bushes, looking very much like primitive（远古的）birds must have done. When the young hoatzins have learned to fly, they lose their claws. During the drier months between December and March hoatzins fly about the forest in groups of 20 to 30 birds, but in April, when the rainy season begins, they collect together in smaller living units of two to seven birds for producing purposes. 21．What is the text mainly about? A．Hoatzins in dry and rainy seasons. B．The relatives and enemies of hoatzins. C．The appearance and living habits of hoatzins. D．Primitive birds and hoatzins of the Amazon. 22．Young hoatzins are different from their parents in that____ ． A．they have claws on the wings B．they look like young cuckoos C．they eat a lot like a cow D．they live on river banks 23．What can we infer about primitive birds from the text? A．They had claws to help them climb. B．They could fly long distances. C．They had four wings like hoatzins. D．They had a head with long feathers on the top.
There are many American novelists in the literary world. For example, Scott Fitzgerald, born on September 24,1896, was once a student of St. Paul Academy, the Newman School and attended Princeton University for a short while. In 1917 he joined the army and was posted in Alabama, where he met his future wife Zelda Sayre. Then he had to make some money to impress her. His life with her was full of great happiness, as he wrote in his diary“ My own happiness in the past often got such joy that I could share it even with the person dearest to me but had to walk it away in quiet streets and take down parts of it in my diary.” This Side of Paradise, his first novel, was published in 1920. Encouraged by its success, Fitzgerald began to devote more time to his writing. Then he continued with the novel the Beautiful and Damned (1922), a collection of short stories Thales of the Jazz Age (1922), and a play The Vegetable (1923). But his greatest success was the novel The Great Gatsby, published in 1925, which quickly brought him praise from the literary world. Yet it failed to give him the needed financial security. Then, in 1926, he published another collection of short stories All the Sad Young Men. However, Fitzgerald?s problems with his wife Zelda had an effect on his writing. During the 1920s he tried to reorder his life, but failed. By 1930, his wife had her first breakdown and went to a Swiss clinic. During this period he completed novels Tender Is the Night in 1934 and The love of the last Tycoon in 1940. While his wife was in hospital in the United States, he got totally addicted to(沉迷 于) alcohol. Sheila Graham, his dear friend, helped him fight his alcoholism. 24. How many novels written by Fitzgerald are mentioned in the passage ? A. 8 B. 6 C. 7 D. 5 25. Which of the following is the correct order to describe Fitzgerald?s life according to the passage? a. He became addicted to drinking.
b. He studied at St. Paul Academy. c. He published his first novel This Side of Paradise. d. The Great Gatsby won high praise. e. He failed to reorder his life. f. He joined the army and met Zelda. A. f-c-e-a-b-d B. b-e-a-f-c-d C. f-d-e-c-b-a D. b-f-c-d-e-a 26. We can infer from the passage that Fitzgerald ______. A. had made some money when he met Zelda in Alabama. B. was well educated and well off before he served in the army C. helped his friend get rid of drinking while his wife was in hospital D. would have completed more works if his wife hadn?t broken down 27. The passage is probab ly followed by a concluding paragraph about ______. A. Fitzgerald?s contributions to the literary world B. Zelda?s illness and treatment C. Fitzgerald?s friendship with Graham D. Zelda?s personal life C Are you afraid of being scolded by your teacher for being late? This is one of my experiences. ＂Get up, get up, Jim. It's time to get up!＂, My mother said while she was pushing me. I opened my eyes and looked at the clock. "Oh dear! It's a quarter to eight already. I'll be late for school again," I thought. I jumped out of the bed, washed my face, and then hurried to the bus stop without breakfast. As soon as I got on the bus, it started running. "I'm sure I can get to the school on time," I said to myself. Suddenly the bus stopped. The bus driver got off the bus, then got on the bus again and said, "I'm sorry, l adies and gentlemen. There's something wrong with the bus. Please get off the bus and wait for another one." "I couldn't wait. The school is not far. I'd better run to the school," I thought, and then I began to run. But before I got to the school, it began to rain hard. I reached the classroom but I was wet shivering （发抖） with cold. The physics teacher had already begun his lesson. It was Mr. Smith. He was about fifty years old. All the students were a little afraid of him and so was I. I liked neither him nor his physics lessons. I hesitated（犹豫）for a moment and then I opened the door. "I'm very sorry, Mr. Smith. I'm late again," I said with a red face. "It's you again, Jim," Mr. Smith said angrily. "I've told you not to be late, but you…" he suddenly stopped and looked at my wet clothes. He turned to the class and said, "I'm very sorry, my boys and girls." With these words he quickly took off his own jacket and handed it to me. "Now take off your wet coat and put this on or y ou'll catch cold," he said kindly. I went to my seat with Mr. Smith's jacket on. It was a bit large for me but I felt very warm in it. I found, for the first time, physics was so interesting and how well I could understand it! 28.

A. students can't be late for school B. physics is easy if you like the physics teachers C. students can learn better if teachers love them D. you'll catch cold if your clothes are wet D Money is such a good thing that everyone loves it. There was once a captain who loved money so much that he cheated his sailors at the end of every voyage and took their wages. On the last day of one voyage, the ship was in a small port. It was winter time, and the sea was very cold, so the captain said to his sailors, “If one of you stays in the water during the whole night, I will give him my ship. But if he comes out before the sun appears, I shall get his wages.” The sailors had heard about the captain's cheating, so they d idn't trust him. But then one of them, who thought that he was cleverer than the captain, said that he would do it. He got into the water, and, though it was very cold, he stayed in it. When it was nearly morning, some fishermen lit a fire on the shore about half a mile away. “You are cheating,” the captain said to the sailor. “The fire?s warming you.” "But it's half a mile away!” said the sailor. “A fire?s fire,” answered the captain. “I have won.” The sailor came out of the water, and said, “Perhaps you think that you are clever because you have won my wages, but you can't cook a chicken.” “I can,” answered the captain. “If you cook this chicken,” said the sailor, “I shall work for you without wages for seven years, but if you can't, you will give me your ship.” The captain agreed, took the chicken and said, “Where's the fire?” “There it is,” answered the sailor. “On the shore.” “But it?s half a mile away,” said the captain angrily. “?A fire?s fire,? you said,” answered the sailor. “If it is enough to warm me in the water, it is enough to cook your chicken.” 3 2.
