When I was at school, our teacher told the class " You are what you eat." My friends and I would laugh and call each other "hamburger" （汉堡） and "biscuits". Our teacher was trying to show us the importance of eating the right food to stay healthy.
This was 30 years ago when there were big movements to make British people healthier. We started to eat boiled potatoes instead of French fries and drink fat-free milk instead of whole milk. At first I felt my potatoes had no taste at all. But after a while I started to prefer healthier food because I felt stronger and I didn't get sick so often.
So we agree that you become what you eat. Do you know what your friends eat just by looking at them? When you know the effects of different types of food, you can use your knowledge well and eat what you want to become.
Food has been so important to our health. Everyone has their own advice to give, which they have read about or have been told by older people. However, some of these pieces of advice seem to disagree with each other. For example, some say "Eating chocolate makes you fat," while others say "Chocolate contains the important minerals （矿物质） like iron and magnesium （铁）。" In fact what we need to find out is what type of chocolate to eat and how much of it to eat.
36. What did the teacher mean by "You are what you eat" in Paragraph 1?
A. It's fun to he called hamburger or biscuits.
B. Your life looks like what you eat.
C. It's important to eat what you like.
D. Your health depends on what you eat.
37. Which of the following does the author probably like now?
A. Boiled potatoes.
B. Fried chicken.
C. French fries.
D. Whole milk.
38. What is the author's opinion on advice?
A. Refuse it if you don't like it.
B. Pass it to your friends.
C. Accept it if you have read about it
D. Consider it when making your decision.
Nancy wanted to make good use of her spare time. So she decided to work for the underdog. For the past several years, she has been putting her experience and energy to help a disadvantaged （条件差的） high school student.
Nancy knew that her knowledge would be best shared in a one-to-one situation. She found her perfect match in Operation Jump Start （OJS）。
OJS was founded in 1994 in Long Beach, California, with the goal of helping students reach for higher education. It pairs students with experienced volunteers （志愿者） , and provides them with workshops on writing, leadership development, and guided tours of various colleges.
Since its start, OJS has helped 80 students graduate from high school, with 95 percent moving on to higher education
Naney and the girl, Yanira, spent most of their time on school work. Together the two often went to museums, zoos, the movies, and concerts; they even sang in the school holiday show together!
"I know I'm not like anyone else in Yanira' s life," Nancy says, "It' s been great to get to know her and to watch her change, grow, and learn. "
Much to Nancy's excitement, Yanira plans to attend John Jay College in New York City, where Nancy's father taught for his whole life. "These days I share her dream, and if she gets accepted I hope to travel to New York with her and show her around," Naney says.
39. The word "underdog" in Paragraph 1 probably refers to_______.
A. smart high school students
B. dogs that are not liked by their owners
C. students who need help to succeed
D. poor company workers

D. It's an organization helping high school students.
41. Who is Yanira in the story?
A. A volunteer OJS supported.
B. A student Nancy helped.
C. A teacher from John Jay College.

A world like no other-perhaps this is the best way to describe the world of the rainforest. No rainforest is the same-yet most rainforests can be found in the small land area 22.5 degrees north and 22.5 degrees south of the Equator （赤道）。 You can find rainforests in South America and Indonesia. Other rainforests exist further from the Equator, in Thailand and Sri lanka.
Rainforests have a great role to play in supporting the world. They are home to a rich variety of plants, birds and animals. Can you believe that 480 varieties of trees may be found in just one hectare （公顷） of rainforest? These forests have around 50% of all the plants, birds and animals on Earth.
Rainforests have their own perfect way for living. The tall trees make a huge umbrella of branches and leaves which protect themselves, smaller plants, and the forest animals from heavy rain, dry heat from the sun and strong winds. Rainforest trees grow in such a way that their leaves and branches, although close together, never actually touch those of another tree. Scientists think this is a way to prevent the spread of any tree diseases and make life more difficult for leaf-eating insects （昆虫）。 To live in the forest, animals must climb, jump, or fly across the branches and trees. The ground floor of the forest is not all leaves and bushes, like in films, but is actually fairly clear. It is where leaves become food for the trees and other forest life.
Rainforests around the world are disappearing at a high speed. A few thousand years ago, rainforests covered as much as 12% of the land surface on Earth, but today this has fallen to less than 5.3%. We hope that the world governments work together with scientists to use their power and knowledge to keep the rainforests for our existence.,
43. According to the text, we can find rainforests in_______
D. U. S. A.
44. Why are rainforests important to the world?
A. They can provide food for different kinds of insects.
B. They can lower the temperature around the Equator.
C. They are home to various kinds of plants and animals.
D. They produce the best wood for house building.
45. What can be seen in a rainforest according to the text?
A. Leaves and branches of a tree never actually touch those of the other trees.
B. Tree diseases make life more difficult for leaf-eating insects.
C. Tall trees protect themselves, from forest animals with their branches.
D. The ground floor is all covered by leaves and branches.
46. How much of the land surface on Earth is covered by rainforests?
A. More than 50%
B. Nearly 12%.
C. Less than 5.3%
D. Around 22. 5%
Would you Marry the Same Person Again?
It's said that human beings have restless （不安分的） hearts, but this month' s global survey （调查） suggests otherwise. On average, 68 percent of the respondents （调查对象） in 15 countries would again say "I do" to their husbands or wives. In the United States, Brazil, and Great Britain, respondents over 45 are more likely than younger people to feel satisfied with their choices. But in Canada, France, India, Malaysia, the Philippines, and Spain, it's the 45-and-unders who feel more happily matched.
In the Philippines, where couples marry younger than in most nations, only 20% of those over age 45 say they'd stay with the same husband or wife.
Malaysia is highest with men （48%） who would give up their marriage if given the chance. In Italy, however, 42% of wives would say goodbye to their husbands.
So Happy Together
