Dolphins（海豚）are not fish, but warm-blooded animals. They live in groups, and speak to each other in their own language. In this, they are like other animals, such as bees and birds. But dolphins are very different from almost all land animals. Their brain is nearly the same size as our own, and they live a long time―at least twenty or thirty years. Like some animals, dolphins use sound to
help them find their way around. They also make these sounds to talk to each other and to help them find food. We now know they do not use their ears to receive these sounds, but the lower part of the mouth, called the jaw. Strangely, dolphins seem to like man, and for thousands of years there have been stories about the dolphin and its friendship with people. There is a story about sailors in the 19th century. In a dangerous part of the sea off the coast of New Zealand, they learnt to look for a dolphin called Jack. From 1871 to 1903, Jack met every boat in the area and showed it the way. Then in 1903 a passenger on a boat called The Penguin shot and wounded Jack. He recovered and for nine years more continued to guide all ships through the area---except for The Penguin. Today, some people continue to kill dolphins, but many countries of the world now protect them and in these places it is against the law to kill them. 21. Dolphins are different from many other animals in that they _____. A. live in groups C. are warm-blooded B. have large brains D. have their own language
22. Which of the following does the dolphin use to help it find its way around? A. Its nose. B. Its ears. C. Its mouth. D. Its eyes.
23. Why did the sailors off the coast of New Zealand look for Jack? A. He was lonely and liked to be with people. B. They enjoyed playing with him. C. He was seriously wounded. D. They wanted his help. 24. By telling the story of Jack, the writer wanted to show that _____. A. dolphins are friendly and clever B. people are cruel to animals C. Jack is different from other dolphins D. dolphins should be protected by law
( B) As a boy, Sanders was much influenced(影响) by books about the sea, but by the age of fifteen he had decided to become a doctor rather than a sailor. His father was a doctor. So he was often with the doctors and got along very well with them. When he was fourteen, he was already hanging around the hospital where he was supposed to be helping to clean the medicine bottles, but was actually trying to listen to the doctors’ conversations with patients in the next room. During the war Sanders served in the army as a surgeon(外科医生). “That was the happiest time of my life. I was dealing with real sufferers and on the whole making a success of my job.” In Rhodes he taught the country peopl e simple facts about medicine. He saw himself as a life-saver. He had proved his skill to himself and had a firm belief that he could serve those who lived simply, and were dependent upon him. Thus, while in a position to tell them what to do he could feel he was serving them. After the war, he married and set up a practice deep in the English countryside, working under an old doctor who hated the sight of blood. This gave the younger man plenty of opportunity(机会) to go on working as a life-saver. 25. When he was a small boy, books about the sea had made Sanders want to be _________. A. a surgeon C. a sailor B. an army man D. a life-saver
26. At the age of 14, Sanders _________. A. worked as a doctor by cleaning the medicine bottles B. met some doctors who were very friendly to him C. was interested in talking with patients D. remained together with the doctors
27. His experience in the Army proved that ________. A. he was good at medical operations on the wounded B. he succeeded in teaching people how to save their lives themselves C. a doctor was the happiest man D. his wish of being a life-saver could hardly come true 28. Having proved his skill to himself, Sanders ________. A. wanted to live a simple life like a countryman B. came to realize that he was really working for his countrymen C. taught himself life-saving D. was highly respected by the old doctor 29.When the war was over, he _______________. A. learned from an old doctor because he was popular B. started to hate the sight of blood while working C. served the countrymen under an old doctor who needed someone to help him D. had few chances to be a “life-saver” because he was younger
It is difficult for doctors to help a person with a damaged brain. Without enough blood, the brain lives for only three to five minutes. More often the doctors can’t fix the damage. Sometimes they are afraid to try something to help because it is dangerous to work on the brain. The doctors might make the person worse if he operates on the brain. Dr. Robert White, a famous professor and doctor, thinks he knows a way to help. He thinks doctors should make the brain very cold. If it is very cold, the brain can live without
blood for 30 minutes. This gives the doctor a longer time to do something for the brain. Dr. White tried his idea on 13 monkeys. First he taught them to do different jobs, and then he op erated on them. He made the monkeys’ blood go through a machine. The machine cooled the blood. Then the machine sent the blood back to the monkeys’ brains. When the brain’s tempera ture was 10° C, Dr. White stopped the blood to the brain. After 30 minutes he turned the blood back on. He warmed the blood again. After their operations the monkeys were like they had been before. They were healthy and busy. Each one could still do the jobs the doctor had taught them. 30. The biggest difficulty in operating on the damaged brain is that _______. A. the time is too short for doctors B. the patients are often too nervous C. the damage is extremely hard to fix D. the blood-cooling machine might break down 31.The brain operation was made possible mainly by _______. A. taking the blood out of the brain B. trying the operation on monkeys first C. having the blood go through a machine D. lowering the brain’s temperature 32. With Dr. White’s new idea, the operation on the damaged brain _______. A. can last as long as 30 minutes B. can keep the brain’s blood warm C. can keep the patient’s brain healthy D. can help monkeys do different jobs
33. What is the right order of the steps in the operation? a. send the cooled blood back to the brain b. stop the blood to the brain c. have the blood cooled down d. operate on the brain A. a, b, c, d C. c, b, d, a B. c, a, b, d D. b, c, d, a
I spent the first eight years of my education in a small. However, in the ninth grade I moved to a huge public high school. I went from a class of 30 kids to a class of almost 100! I was shy and did not have much experience of socializing. I felt invisible there. They had a tradition in this class. On your birthday everyone would sing “Happy Birthday to You” and then members of the opposite sex would line up and give you a hug. My birthday was early in the school year, and since I didn’t know anyone to tell I figured that no one would notice.

Before I knew what was happening, everyone was singing to me and I had a bunch of girls waiting to give me a hug! I was completely confused. My heart was racing! It wasn’t until the fourth or fifth hug that I realized w hat I was saying “Happy Birthday” in a shy voice during each embrace. I tried to stop, but my brain I was so busy that I couldn’t
control my mouth. Each girl gave me a wish, and I gave her the same in return. Later, whenever we greeted each other wit h a hug we would say.” Happy Birthday”. 34、 By saying “I felt invisible there”, the writer meant that he was not ______. A. independent C. noticed B. Important D. excited

your hands because then they could end up in your mouth. You can also fight germs by keeping your working surfaces clean and dry. Wash them with soap after you finish cooking. Now that you have your ingredients(调料 ) neatly lined up, your hands washed, it is important to use the kitchen safely. Before you start, it's a good idea to learn a few rules.
