Today ， Yellowstone’s identity( 身 份 )is closely connected with its powerful ， natural geysers(喷泉) such as the ever present：Old Faithful.Old Faithful erupts about every 85—87 minutes.It’s 130—140 feet tall，and it’s attractive. The unbelievable geysers and picture postcard landscape brought Yellowstone its fame.But today ， its wildlife population is just as popular.The most arguable of these is Yellowstone’s wolf population.Until recently，the wolf almost disappeared. This world has been filled with killing wolves.We have been killing wolves for centuries， probably for thousands of years.Afraid that the wolves would threaten their livestock(家畜)， government bounty hunters in the early 1900’s killed Yellowstone’s grey wolves for the price of fifteen dollars a head.They were hunted to near dying out.It would be almost a century before an effort would begin to reverse this damage. In 1995，Yellowstone’s wolf population was almost gone，so Douglas Smith (Yellowstone’s Wolf Preservation Project leader) went to Canada to catch fourteen of the animals in an effort to revive Yellowstone’s wolf population.Douglas said，“Catching a wolf is a tough thing to do.And there’s nothing more exciting than flying over a wolf in a helicopter.You throw a net over them，they get tied up，and then you go up and calm them.When you move a wolf from one place to another，they try and get back home.We held them for about ten weeks inside the pens.” One of the transplanted wolves in particular has had a lot to do with the park’s wolf repopulation.This wolf， a female known as No.9， is one of the park’s top breeders， and 70% of the wolves born in the park today have her genes.Wolves are now the marquee(招牌)animal in Yellowstone.Many people said it was a lifetime experience seeing a wolf in the wild in Yellowstone. For encouraging the vision(眼力) to preserve one of the world’s most beautiful natural wonders，Yellowstone lands at number six on our list. 1．The United States built the Yellowstone，because it wanted to ________. A．develop the tourism B．keep the natural beauty C．protect the wolves D．build a world natural wonder
2 ． The underlined word “bounty” in the fourth paragraph most probably means “________”． A．禁令 B．取消 C．允许 D．悬赏 3．From the passage we can know that ________. A．the geysers are fountains that can erupt very often and are attractive B．the wolves were killed before because of their threat to livestock C．with people’s efforts，the number of the wolves can resume soon D．Yellowstone is the most beautiful natural wonder 4．It is implied in the sixth paragraph that ________. A．the number of the wolves in the Yellowstone park is very large B．the wolves are the most attractive natural wonder of the park C．the wolf，No.9，came to the Yellowstone park relatively early D．many people said they were very happy to see the wolves here 5．The best title of this passage can be ________. A．Wolves in Nature B．Yellowstone and the Wolves C．Yellowstone D．Save the Wolves of Yellowstone likely 和 unlikely 都是形容词，不能用于 It’s likely/unlikely for sb. to do sth.这一结构。 但 possible 和 probable 可以。另外，be (un)likely to do 的主语应是具有实际意义的人或 物。 1．It’s possible/probable for him to finish the work on time. 对他来说是有可能按时完成这项工作的。 2．It’s too late.She is unlikely to come. 太晚了，她不可能来了。 3．It’s raining outside.It’s unlikely that he’ll come. 外面下着雨，他不可能来了。
