Most animals have little connection with animals of a different kind, unless they hunt them for food. Sometimes, however, two kinds of animals come together in a partnership(伙伴关系) which is good for both of them. You may have noticed some birds sitting on the backs of sheep. This is not because they want a ride, but because they find easy food in the parasites(寄生虫) on sheep. The sheep allow the birds to do so because they remove the cause of discomfort. So although they can manage without each other, they do better together. Sometimes an animal has a plant partner. The relationship develops until the two partners cannot manage without each other. This is so in the corals(珊瑚) of the sea. In their skins they have tiny plants which act as “dustmen”, taking some of the waste products from the coral and giving in return oxygen which the animal needs to breathe. If the plants are killed, or are even prevented from receiving light so that they cannot live normally, the corals will die. 36. Some birds like to sit on a sheep because A. they can eat its parasites C. they depend on the sheep for existence . B. they enjoy traveling with the sheep D. they find the position most comfortable .

37. The underlined word “they ” in the last sentence of the first paragraph refers to A. birds and parasites C. parasites and sheep B. birds and sheep D. sheep, birds and parasites . D. oxygen

38. We learn from the text that corals depend on plants for A. comfort B. light C. food

39. What does the second paragraph mainly discuss? A. Some animals and plants depend on each other for existence B. Some animals and plants develop their relationship easily. C. Some plants depend on each other for food. D. Some animals live better together.

Ban Smoking in public places?

Smoking bans can be seen in public places in many countries. Our class had a heated discussion on banning smoking in public places. Opinions fall into two. Some students agree that smoking is dangerous, Not only does smoking harm smokers themselves but also harm the people around them. Bans in public places would also urge smokers to smoke less or give it up. However, Others hold an opposite view. They believe that it’s legal to smoke and smokers should have the freedom and right to smoke in any place they like. Besides, bans on smoking in public places would drive many bars, pubs or clubs out of business. What’s worse, many people will be out of job because of this. 本资料来源于《七彩教育网》http://www.7caiedu.cn
