One had Down syndrome(低能综合症), while the other did not. Here, Cathleen tells their touching story. Since Sean was born 17 years ago, I have always thought that he is just as wonderful as his brother and sister. Though he had a disability(残疾), we have never viewed him as a burden. He has always been a blessing. The doctors explained that though they were twins, they came from two different eggs. Lisa could walk at 11 months old, while Sean didn’t take his first steps till he was three. By two, Lisa was talking a lot, but Sean wasn’t able to speak until he was nearly four. For the first five years of his life, Sean needed a great deal of care. Looking after him was my full-time job, though I also worked as a technical adviser in a computing company. We never treated them differently. We gave them the same toys and spoke to them in the same way. We encouraged Sean to keep up with Lisa, even though he never could, and we would help him develop his abilities. We sent them to the same primary school even after doctors advised us that Sean should go to a school for the disabled. We had to explain to Lisa that he wouldn’t learn as quickly as she would. She told us that she’d help him with his school work. Having a non-disabled twin has really helped Sean develop. The love they share has given him a great deal of support. Now Sean and Lisa are both about to finish high school. I don’t think he would have done nearly as well today without Lisa’s help. 41. At least how many children does Mrs. Gardiner have? A. Two. B. Three. C. Four. D. One. 42. Mrs. Gardiner and her husband regarded Sean as _______. A. a boy making others touched B. a normal child without disabilities C. a special gift D. a burden of their family 43. The third paragraph mainly tells us that _______.
A. the couple treated the twins equally B. Cathleen did all she could to look after Sean C. the couple didn’t follow the doctor’s advice D. the couple encouraged Sean to grow up 44. This passage tells us that _________. A. love can do wonders B. nobody is foolish or clever C. being stupid doesn’t matter D. all men are born equal 45. According to the passage which statement is true? A. The couple thought Sean should go to a school for the disabled. B. Lisa was willing to help Sean C. The twins came from the same egg. D. The couple regarded Sean as a heavy burden. B If you travel by air across the center of Africa or south .America, you fly over forests for thousands of kilometers .These great forests are the oceans of trees. There are full of thousands and thousands of different kinds of plants and animals. However, the world’s forests are getting smaller all the time.

Here are some tips on how to better make use of your free time while staying healthy. By keeping physically active, you're making sure that your joints (关节) and body organs (器官) are kept in good working order. Exercise can also help keep your weight at a healthy level and can protect you against catching coughs and colds. Other benefits are an increase in your energy level and brain activity. Knowing that you're looking and feeling good can also increase your self-confidence. If you're under 18, you should try to do a total of 60 minutes of physical exercise every day.

Getting fit isn't all about gyms - some forms of exercise won't cost you any money, and most forms can easily be used in your busy lifestyle without having to find some special time in your day. For example, riding a bike to school, college or work, and even running on a playground a few times a week can improve your fitness level.
