Doctors have known for years that women should not take
ACE inhibitors during the last six months of pregnancy.The
dicine can injure the baby.ACE inhibitors，though，have been considered safe when taken during the first three months.
But a new study has found that women who take these drugs early
in their pregnancy still increase the risk of birth disorders.The study shows that，compared to others，their babies were almost
three times as likely to be born with major problems.These
included problems with the formation of the brain and nervous system and holes in the heart.

that they will feel uncomfortable and insecure in both professional and social situations.Eventually，they realize that university classes can’t be the only preparation for all of the different situations that arise in the working world.

what it is that you admire this person for.For example，
you will observe how he acts in crisis.Perhaps even more important，you will be able to see what his approach to
day- day situations is. to-

habits. ◆What is the main idea of this passage?

【实践应用】 Imagine a world in which children would be the rulers and could decide not only the outcome of each and every occurrence，but also dictate the very structure and form of
the environment.In this world，a child’s wildest thoughts
would become reality limited only by the extent of his or her imagination.while such a world might sound both fant
astic and frightening，at least from a logical，adult
perspective，it does exist.What’s more，it has been in existence for some time and is populated by hundreds of thousands of children who spend hours within its bound aries experimenting and learning.This world is not real，
at least not in the traditional sense，but exists within a computer and is generated by an educational programming language called LOGO.Unlike other computer languages and programs that are designed to test children and provide applications that formally dispense information，LOGO
allows children，even preschool children to be in total
control.Children teach the computer to think and as a result develop and sharpen their own reasoning ability.
◆The best title for this passage would be________.
A．Children Rule the World B．Children Learn Reasoning Using LOGO C．Computer Languages
D．The Unreal World of the Child and the Computer
解析：在介绍完 LOGO 语言之后，作者道出主题，
对整篇文章进行了概括和总结，做出结论：Children teach the computer to think and as a result develop and
sharpen their own reasoning ability.故只有B项“儿童掌
握使用LOGO语言可以发展自己的推理能力”才是文章 的主题。 答案：B
