Is the whal e the world’s largest fish? No. It looks like a fish, but it is really a mammal (哺乳动物). Then what’s the world’s largest fish? It’s the whale shark.

Although the whale shark is our biggest fish and lives in many oceans around the world, few people have ever heard of it. Scientists have not been studying whale sharks for very long. Much more needs to be learned about them.

A whale shark is sometimes called a “gentle giant (温柔的巨人)”. It likes to be alone and doesn’t care a bit about divers or humans. The biggest whale shark weighed 24,250 pounds and was nearly 40 feet long. This makes it heavier and longer than a school bus.

Inside its huge mouth are great numbers of very small teeth. To count all of them, you’ll need to do some maths. The whale shark’s teeth a re arranged in rows. There are between eleven and thirteen rows on each jaw (颚) and around three hundred teeth in each row.

However, the whale shark rarely uses its teeth. It does not chew or bite its food. Large amounts of water are pulled into its mouth and then pushed out through its gills (鳃).

For a few months every year, a group of whale sharks comes to Ningaloo Reef, off Western Australia. This gives scientists a wonderful chance to study the large fish. Whale sharks do live in other oceans of the world, but no one knows their population. It is possible that our biggest fish may need protecting. It is one of the reasons why scientists continue to learn all they can about these gentle giants.

6.Little is known about whale sharks because scientists _____.

A. are not interested in learning about them

B. find them too difficult to catch

C. do not know the best places to find them

D. have studied them for a short time

7.Which of the following is the best title for the article?

A. Gentle Giants

B. The Diary of a Sailor

C. The Largest Animal

D. My Life on the Sea


Taking an after-school class will give you a head start in high school.


But if it means walking home every day, even in snow and rain, would

you do it?

I did. I took part in an after-school Spanish class. Because it was after

school, no school buses were there to take me home when the class ended.

And my parents couldn’t pick me up, so I had to walk home.

At first I hated the walk because of the long distance. But after a few months, I got used to (习惯于) it and it became one of my daily activities, like getting dressed and brushing my teeth. And I began to enjoy it. I got to see things like birds flying and trees changing color. A few times I saw something very special, like a small snake near the sidewalk, or two cars that came very close to crashing!

Many of my classmates saw what I did. Once, one girl in my class asked her mother to drive me home because it was raining outside, and I didn’t have an umbrella (雨伞). Some people who I didn’t know even gave me a ride – they thought it was too cold out.

People always think walking long distances is difficult. Modern technology (技术) makes common things, like walking, seem impossible. Many people, like myself, live in the country and are close to nature, but also far away from it because of technology.

8. Why did the writer begin to enjoy walking home?

A. Because something interesting happened on the road every day.

B. Because the writer could get a ride from some strange people.

C. Because the writer enjoyed walking in the rain alone.

D. Because the writer could enjoy some interesting things happening on the road.

9. What does the last paragraph want to tell us?

A. It is difficult for many people to walk long distances.

B. Modern technology brings people a lot of inconvenience (不方便).

C. Modern technology makes people live better, but farther from the nature.

D. It is impossible for people to walk a long distance nowadays.


When people think of tigers, they think: strong and dangerous. But now, the big animal is calling for our help.

There were once eight kinds of tigers in the world, but three died out during last century. In the last 70 years, the number of Siberian tigers (东北虎) has gone from as many as 300 to somewhere between 18 and 22.

The World Wildlife Fund (WWF) started a program recently. It is about to put an end to tiger poaching (非法狩猎) and save wild tigers. China, together with 12 other countries, has joined in. The aim is to double (使…加倍) the number of wild tigers in the next ten years.

According to research by Chinese officers and the WWF, the Siberian tiger is already one of the world’s most endangered animals. “If the government doesn’t take any action, it’s quite possible that there will be no more Siberian tigers in China in 10 to 20 years,” said Zhu Chunquan, director at the WWF’s Beijing office.

Wild animals such as the red deer, sika deer (梅花鹿) and wild boar (野猪) are the tigers’ main food. The poaching of these animals is the greatest threat to tigers. Traps (陷阱) are also a

threat. In October, the people of Mishan, Heilongjiang found a dead Siberian tiger with a wire (金属丝) around its neck.

“V olunteers from the WWF remove traps every year, but the fact is that we cannot clear all the traps ourselves,” Zhu said. The most impor tant thing people can do is to save the animals which tigers eat. “To protect the tigers, we need to call on more people to stop eating wild animals.”

10. Which of the following is the reason why the number of Siberian tigers is becoming smaller

and smaller?

① The poaching ② traps ③people’s eating of wild animals ④ fewer volunteers

A. ①②④

B. ①③④

C. ①②③

D. ②③④

The seven-day National Holiday was fun for many Chinese, but not for the animals in Xiangjiang Zoo in Guangzhou. Some of the animals were nervous, because too many people crowded(拥挤)into the zoo nearly every day during the holiday, according to (根据) the workers at the zoo.

I heard the bees long before I saw them.

It was a very hot afternoon, and we decided to cool off in the river near my home. As we climbed down a small hill toward the water, my boyfriend John started to shout, then jumped into the water. Peter and Mary quickly followed but I was too far away to jump. I was trapped.

I heard a low hum (嗡嗡声), the group of bees looked like a heavy smoke. As it got closer, I realized (意识到) it was actually a lot of bees flying towards me.

All I could do was to cover my face with my hands. Crazily, I thought that if I sat still (不动) ,

the bees would think I was just another rock.

After a few seconds, I knew my plan didn't work. The bees attacked (袭击) me. I could hear my friends shouting at me to get down to the pool fast.

But it wasn't so easy. The only way I could get away was to use my hands to climb down the rocks. However, I was afraid to do that at first because my face would be unprotected(不受保护). The noise of bees made me worried, but I could do nothing.

I rushed down the rocks and jumped into the pool, but I didn't remember doing it. I was just so happy to be free from the pain.

But we still weren't out of danger. Every time we tried to climb out of the pool, the bees flew back over our heads. We spent the next three hours in the water, putting our heads under the water from time to time to avoid (避免)the bees till they finally lost interest.

There was a lovely vegetable patch (菜园). A large tree grew there. Both the patch and the tree gave the place a wonderful look, and they were the pride of the gardener. But no one know that the vegetables and the tree couldn’t stand (忍受) each other. The vegetables hated the tree’s shadow (阴影) , because it left them only just enough light to live. The tree, on the other hand, hated the vegetables because they drank nearly all the water, leaving him just enough to live.

Some teenagers think that newspapers are boring and only for adults. But that's not true. There are many interesting stories in the paper. You just need to make clear what you are looking at. “I spend about half an hour reading newspapers every day,” said 15-year-old Gao Ming from Beijing. “I'm interested in things happening at school.” Sc hool news is just one kind of news story in newspapers. There's also world news: from international problems to pop stars.

News stories —these stories are about events. Reporters try to show all points of a story to help readers understand what happened. Reporters try to speak to as many people as possible.

When we read them, we learn more about the facts, not the writers’ ideas.

Opinion writing —opinion writing is usually about something happening right now. But it isn't just facts. Here writers add their own opinions to the news. Writers pick only the facts that help back up their ideas. They make readers believe that they are telling the truth. This is usually

the kind of story that gets people thinking. Go to “Speak Out” on Page Two for an example of opinion writing in Teenagers.

If you go into the forest with friends, stay with them. If you don't, you may get lost. If you get lost, this is what you should do. Sit down and stay where you are. Don't try to find your friends-let them find you. You can help them find you by staying in one place. There is another way to help your friends or other people to find you. You can shout or whistle three times. Stop. Then shout or whistle three times again. Any signal given three times is a call for help.

Keep up shouting or whistling. Always three times together. When people hear you, they will

know that you are not just making a noise for fun. They will let you know that they have heard your signal. They will give you two shouts or two whistles. When a signal is given twice, it is an answer to a call for help.

If you don't think that you will get help before night comes, try to make a little house with branches. Make yourself a bed with leaves and grass.

When you need some water, you have to leave your little branch house to look for it. Don't just walk away. Pick off small branches and drop them as you walk in order to go back again easily.

When you are lost, the most important thing to do is to stay in one place.

Dear Editor,

"I hate these bicycles in front of my car," said a Beijing car driver when he was asked a few days ago by a reporter. And today, in a famous American magazine, I read that cars are now winning a victory (胜利) over bicycles in the capital of China.

Who would have thought that Beijing, a city well-known around the world for its millions of cyclists, might lose its advantage(优势)in the fight against city pollution? Unfortunately, it is true, and this situation might be worse.

Each day I am proud to go to work by bike. At the age of 50, I think this means of transportation is the most suitable in a city with a large population like Beijing, and it also helps me to keep fit.

For almost 6 months, each time there is a traffic jam on Baishiqiao Road, cars are entering the bicycle road between the National Library and the Purple Bamboo Park. In turn, cyclists have to ride on the sidewalk to avoid(避开)these four-wheel "comers".

I understand the people's desire(渴望)to own cars and the government's desire to develop the national car industry.

However, when almost all big cities around the world are trying to stop pollution caused by cars, encouraging their citizens to use other means of transportation and taking actions to reduce traffic jams in downtown areas, Beijing's government should understand that encouraging its citizens to ride a bicycle is one of the means necessary to have a clean and enjoyable city in the future.
