With only about 1,000 pandas left in the world,China is desperately trying to clone （克隆）the animal and save the endangered species（物种）.That’s a move similar to what a Texas A & M University researchers have been undertaking for the past five years in a project called “Noah’s Ark.”?
Noah’s Ark is aimed at collecting eggs,embryos（胚胎）,semen and DNA of endangered animals and storing them in liquid nitrogen.If certain species should become extinct,Dr.Duane Kraemer,a professor in Texas A & M’ s College of Veterinary Medicine,says there would be enough of the basic building blocks to reintroduce the species in the future.? It is estimated that as many as 2,000 species of mammals,birds reptiles will become extinct in over 100 years.The panda,native only to China,is in danger of becoming extinct in the next 25 years. This week,Chinese scientists said they grew an embryo by introducing cells from a dead female panda into the egg cells of a Japanese white rabbit.They are now trying to implant the embryo into a host animal.? The entire procedure could take from three to five years to complete.? “The nuclear transfer（核子移植）of one species to another is not easy,and the lack of available (capable of being used) panda eggs could be a major problem,”Kraemer believes.“They will probably have to do several hundred transfers to result in one pregnancy (having a baby).It takes a long time and it’s difficult,but this could be groundbreaking science if it works.They are certainly not putting any live pandas at risk,so it is worth the effort,”adds Kraemer,who it one of the leaders of the Project at Texas A & M,the first-ever attempt at cloning a dog.? “They are trying to do something that’s never been done,and this is very similar to our work in Noah’s Ark.We’re both trying to save animals that face extinciton.I certainly appreciate their effort and there’s a lot we can learn form what they are attempting to do.It’s a research that is very much needed.”? 59.The aim of “Noah’s Ark”project is to A.make efforts to clone the endangered pandas?

D.about two thousand of species will probably die out in a century C? The common cold is the world’s most widespread illness,which is plagues （疫 病）that flesh receives.? The most widespread fallacy（谬误）of all is that colds caused by cold.They are not.They are caused by viruses（病毒）passing on from person to person.You catch a cold by coming into contact,directly or indirectly,with someone who already has one.It cold causes colds,it would be reasonable to expect the Eskimos to suffer from them forever.But they do not.And in isolated arctic regions explorers have reported
being free from colds until coming into contact again with infected people from the outside world by way of packages and mail dropped from airplanes.? During the First World War soldiers who spent long periods in the trenches （战 壕）,cold and wet,showed no increased tendency to catch colds.? In the Second World War prisoners at the notorious Auschwitz concentration camp （奥斯维辛集中营） ,naked and starving,were astonished to find that they seldom had colds.? At the Common Cold Research Unit in England,volunteers took part in Experiments in which they gave themselves to the discomforts of being cold and wet for long stretches of time.After taking hot baths,they put on bathing suits,allowed themselves to be with cold water,and then stood about dripping wet in drafty room.Some wore wet socks all day while others exercised in the rain until close to exhaustion.Not one of the volunteers came down with a cold unless a cold virus was actually dropped in his nose.? If,then,cold and wet have nothing to do with catching colds,why are they more frequent in the winter?Despite the most pains—taking research,no one has yet found the answer.One explanation offered by scientists is that people tend to stay together indoors more in cold weather than at other times,and this makes it easier for cold viruses to be passed on.? No one has yet found a cure for the cold.There are drugs and pain suppressors 止 （ 痛片）such as aspirin,but all they do is to relieve the symptoms（症状）.? 63.The writer offered A.4 B.5 examples to support his argument.? C.6 D.3
64.Which of the following does not agree with the chosen passage?? A.The Eskimos do not suffer from colds all the time.? B.Colds are not caused by cold.? C.People suffer from colds just because they like to stay indoors.?
D.A person may catch a cold by touching someone who already had one. 65.Arctic explorers may catch colds when .?

D.they are coming into touch again with the outside world 66.Volunteers taking part in the experiments in the Common Cold Research Unit .? B.never cuaght colds D.became very strong .?
A.suffered a lot C.often caught colds
67.The passage mainly discusses
A.the experiments on the common cold B.the fallacy about the common cold? C.the reason and the way people catch colds D.the continued spread of common colds D? Is language,like food,a basic human need?Judging from the result of the violent experiment by a German king.Frederick Ⅱ,in the 13th century,it may be.Hoping to discover what language a child would speak if the heard no mother tongue,he told the nurses to keep silent.? All the babies died before the first year.But clearly there was more than language deprivation here.What was missing was good mothering.Without good mothering,in the first year of life especially,the capacity to survive is seriously affected.?
Today no such violent deprivation exists as that ordered by Frederick Ⅱ.Nevertheless,some children are still backward in speaking.Most often the reason for this is that the mother is insensitive（不敏感）to the signals of the baby,whose brain is programmed to map up language rapidly.There are critical times,it seems,when children learn more readily.If these sensitive periods are neglected（忽 视）,the ideal time for gaining language skills passes and they might never be learned so easily again.? Linguists（语言学家）suggest that speech stages are reached in a fixed sequence （顺序）and at a constant age,but there are cases where speech has started late in a child who eventually turn out to be of high IQ.? Recent facts suggest that baby is born with the capacity to speak.What is special about Man’s brain,compared with that of the monkeys,is the complex system which enables a child to connect the sight and feel of,say,a teddy-bear（玩具熊）with the sound pattern“teddy-bear”.? But speech has to be stimulated（刺激）,and this depends on interaction between the mother and the child,where the mother recognizes the signals in the child’s babbling（牙牙学语）,grasping,crying and smiling,and responds to them.Insensitivity （不敏感）of the mother to these signals dulls（使迟钝）the interaction because the child gets discouraged and sends out only the obvious signals.Sensitivity to the child’s non-verbal signals in essential to the growth and development of language.? 67.Frederick II’s experiment was violent because .?
A.he wanted to prove children are born with ability to speak? B.he paid no attention to the importance of mothering to the infant? C.he was unkind to the nurses? D.he wanted his nurses to say no mother tongue 68.The reason some children are backward in speaking today is that A.their mothers do not respond to their attempts to speak? .?
B.their mothers are not intelligent enough to help them? C.they do not listen carefully to their mothers? D.their brains have to absorb too much language at once 69.By critical times in Paragraph 3 the author means A.difficult periods in the child’s life? B.moments when the child becomes critical to its mother? C.important stages in the child’s development ? D.times when mothers often neglect their children 70.Which of the following is NOT implied in the passage?? A.Ability to learn to speak a language is inborn in man.? B.Children do not need to be encouraged to learn to speak.? C.Early language starters are not necessarily highly intelligent.? D.Most children learn their language in definite stages. E?
