名词数、动词形，形副互混辩分明； 冠词错误常出现，代词前后易错乱； 介词多用错与少，连词转折与平行； 逻辑错误偶尔有，认真阅读别遗漏。

4. (2012 全国新课标)
I learned early in life that I had to be more patient and little aggressive. From the time I was about four until I was about six, I destroyed each of my toy. I was happy when the toys worked, but when things did wrong, I got angry and broke it. For a while parents bought me new toys. But before long they began to see which was happening. When I tear apart my fifth birthday toy train, my father said, "That's it. No more toys to you." My punishment lasted a year. Meanwhile, I found out that with more patience I must make my toys to last. My attitude changed from then on. 5. (2012 重庆卷) Dear Grandpa, How are you those days?

You told me the name of different plants and their characteristics. Gradually, I became interesting in biology and chose to learn biology when I entered into the college. Now my friend Ann, together with me, are going to do field study and the findings will be use as materials for our research. Since we’ll do the study in our home town, I hope to see you by then. Yours, Daisy 6.(2013 辽宁卷） Mr. Johnson is a hardworking teacher. Every day, he spends too much time with his work. With little sleep and hardly any break, so he works from morning till night.

Dad lost his job and as Mom explained, “He was lucky to find other one.” His new job meant I had to say goodbye to my classmate, my school, or just everything else I love in the world. To make matters bad, now I have to share a room with my younger sister, Maggie. Tomorrow is first day of school. I am awfully tiring, but I know I will never fall sleep. Good night and remember, you, dear diary, is my only souvenir from my past life and my only friend. 8. (2013 全国新课标) I hardly remember my grandmother. She used to holding me on her knees and sing old songs. I was only four when she passes away. She is just a distant memory for me now. I remember my grandfather very much.

In a fact，he even scared my classmates away during they came over to play or do homework with me. However， he was the gentlest man I have never known. 9.(2014 全国新课标) Nearly five years before, and with the help by our father, my sister and I planted Some cherry tomatoes(圣女 果)in our back garden. Since then- for all these year-we had been allowing tomatoes to self-seed where they please. As result, the plants are growing somewhere. The fruits are small in size, but juicy and taste. There are so much that we often share them with our neighbors. Although we allow tomato plants to grow in the same place year after year, but we have never had any disease or insect attack problems. We are growing wonderfully tomatoes at no cost!
