Two dolphins race around in a big pool in the Ocean Park. The smaller dolphin, Grace, shows off a few of her tricks, turning around and waving hello to the crowd. The most amazing thing about her, however, is that she's even swimming at all. She doesn't have a tail. Grace lost her tail as a baby when she got caught up in a fish trap.When the dolphin arrived at the Ocean Park in December 2005, she was fighting for her life. “Is she going to make it？ ” Her trainer, Abbey Stone, feared the worst. Grace did make it—but her tail didn't. She ended up losing her flukes and the lower part of her peduncle. Over the past six years, she has learned to swim without her tail. Dolphins swim by moving their flukes and peduncle up and down. Grace taught herself to move another way—like a fish! She pushes herself forward through the water by moving her peduncle from side to side. The movements put harmful pressure on Grace's backbone. So a company offered to create a man－ made tail for her. The tail had to be strong enough to stay on Grace as she swam but soft enough that it wouldn't hurt her. The first time Grace wore the artificial tail, she soon shook it off and let it sink to the bottom of the pool. Now, she is still learning to use the tail. Some days she wears it for an hour at a time, others
not at all. “The new tail isn't necessary for her to feel comfortable， ” says Stone, “but it helps to keep that range of motion(动 作 ) and build muscles(肌 肉 )． ” Now, the dolphin is about to get an even happier ending. This month, Grace will star in Dolphin Tale, a film that focuses on her rescue and recovery. Her progress has inspired more than just a new movie. Many people travel from near and far to meet her. Seeing Grace swim with her man－ made tail gives people so much courage. 60． When Grace first arrived at the Ocean Park, her trainer worried about her A. physical build B. potential ability C. chance of survival D. adaptation to the surroundings 61． A man－ made tail is created for Grace to ________． A. let her recover faster B. make her comfortable C. adjust her way of swimming D. help her perform better tricks 62． The story of Grace inspires people to ________． A. stick to their dreams B. treat animals friendly C. treasure what they have D. face difficulties bravely 【要点综述】 这是一篇关于海豚的故事，讲述的是一只断尾的海豚。它的尾巴在一次 事故中丧失。在训导员的训练下，它克服了困难，学会了使用假尾巴，像其他海豚一样在 水中遨游。它还成了一部电影中的明星，它的勇气感动了人们。 60．C 细节理解题。根据文章第二段“fighting for her life”可知，它在为活下去而挣 ________.

B Changsha, Hunan Province May 6, 2010 Dear editor, Under China’s current educational system, there are those who do nothing but study. They of course are thought to be model students. But I feel that there is another type of student who, perhaps not as diligent (勤奋的) as the first type, uses his time more efficiently and achieves a lot academically. Last year, a classmate of mine was accepted by a top university. It surprised all of us. It was because, unlike most of us, he didn’t spend too much of his time studying. When I asked him the secret of his success, he said that the key was properly and scientifically arranging his time. “ I spent a lot of time keeping fit and as a result, I was able to better concentrate (集中) on my class work.” The moral of the story is: it isn’t necessary to sit at your desk all day long to get high academic (学术) grades. Yours, Zhang Zishu
