On a cool morning, Wilson Kasaine heads out along a dirt path in southern Kenya. His calmness makes it easy to forget that he’s tracking one of the most dangerous animals in the world. Kasaine is tracking lions—especially one lion called Marti, who is the real-life Lion King of Selenkay Conservancy.
Tracking lions on foot may sound like a death wish, but Kasaine has been doing it for most of his life. Born into a traditional Maasai family he quickly grew to understand the beauty and danger of wildlife. Living with big wild animals forces him to develop a good sense of where they have been and where they may be going. During his 12-kilometer walks to and from school, he learned how to tell the paw prints (爪印)of a lion from those of other animals.
Growing up, Kasaine knew that improving his tracking abilities would help him avoid surprise meetings with dangerous animals. For many Maasai, tracking is mainly a matter of self-protection. But Kasaine is tracking lions to meet them and to protect them. He leads a small group of wide-eyed tourists over the red sandy path, searching for the lion that has left upon it his prints.
Each year, thousands of tourists crowd Kenya’s national parks to try to have a look at the"big five”; elephants, rhinoceros, leopards, buffaloes and lions. The international draw of these animals matters a lot because the nation’s economy is tied to the protection of its wildlife. If Kenya’s wildlife disappears, so does its second-largest source of income.
Wildlife protection efforts in Kenya meant marking off land exclusively(专门地)for animals. But it also meant that the people who had originally lived in the area were forced to leave their land and into smaller surrounding areas, They are also finding it increasingly hard to keep a traditional Maasai lifestyle. But people are glad that it really makes a difference to wildlife protection.
24. How did Kasaine track lions?
A. By working together with tourists.
B. By running after them all the time.
C. By going to school every day.
D. By studying their paw prints.
25. What can we learn from Paragraph 4?
A. Maasai people are born animal lovers.
B. Tourism is a big threat to Kenya’s wildlife.
C. Kenya benefits a lot from its wildlife protection.
D. Small animals are not included in their protection policy.
26. What does the underlined word "it”in the last paragraph refer to?
A. Kenya’s economic development.
B. Kenyan people’s traditional Maasai lifestyle.
C. Kenya’s second-largest income source.
D.People’s leaving their original homes.
27. What is the best title for the text?
A. Wildlife protection in Kenya
B. Meeting a dangerous animal
C. Wilson Kasaine’s wise choice
D. Learning to live with lions
When Boris left school, he could not find a job. He tried hard and pestered(纠缠) his relatives, but they had problems of their own. He answered advertisements until he could not afford to buy any more stamps. Boris grew annoyed, then depressed, then a little hardened. Still he went on trying and still he failed. He began to think that he had no future at all.
“Why don’t you start your own business?” one of his uncles told him. “The world is a money-locker. You’d better find a way of opening it.”
“But what can I do?”
“Get out and have a look round,” advised his uncle in a vague sort of way. “See what people want; then give it to them, and they will pay for it.”
Boris began to cycle around the town and found a suitable piece of waste ground in the end. Then he set up his business as a cycle repairer. He worked hard, made friends with his customers and gradually managed to build up his goodwill and profit. A few months later, he found that he had more work than he could deal with by himself. He found a number of empty shops but they were all no good: in the wrong position, too expensive or with some other snags(障碍)， But at long last, he managed to find an empty shop on a new estate where there were plenty of customers but no competition.
Boris and his assistant taught themselves how to repair scooters and motorcycles. Slowly but surely the profits increased and the business developed. At last, Boris had managed to open the money-locker and found bank notes and gold coins inside.

Nowadays it’s believed that the largest contributors to air pollution are gasoline vehicles. They not only give off harmful gases but also dangerous and heavy metal particles（微粒） that can result in environmental dangers. We can’t stop using vehicles and thus stop air pollution right away. However, at least we can look for better replacements so that air pollution can be reduced. According to studies, hydrogen （氢）cars prove to be a better replacement for traditional cars.
A hydrogen car is a vehicle that uses hydrogen as fuel for its engine to work. There are two types of hydrogen cars. The first one is to use hydrogen as a fuel, and the second one is to use hydrogen fuel cells（电池） to provide power for the car. Hydrogen and oxygen react chemically with each other to produce electricity, thus starting the car.
There are many advantages of hydrogen cars. For example, hydrogen is available in plenty. Therefore, you needn’t worry about a lack of hydrogen. More importantly, no harmful gases are released as by-products .The only by-products are water and a little amount of heat so air pollution is prevented up to a large extent.
However, there are also some problems with hydrogen cars. For instance, in case of damage, the cost of repairing and replacing fuel cells is high. Worse still, hydrogen is a material which can burn easily, so it can result in a huge explosion of the car.
The concept of hydrogen cars is relatively new for most people. Research is still in progress to reduce disadvantages and increase advantages. Therefore, hydrogen cars are expected to contribute their bit towards making this planet better and healthier!
32. The main purpose of the passage is to tell readers_____________.
A. a new type of cars. B. to stop air pollution right away.
C. the weaknesses and strengths of hydrogen cars. D. the reasons for air pollution.
33. Which isn’t the by-product made by gasoline cars?
A. Carbon monoxide. B. Hydrogen.
C. Heavy mental particles. D. Harmful gases
34. The author may disagree___________
A. Hydrogen is easy to burn.
B. There is no chance that we quit using cars.
C. Hydrogen can be used as fuel for the engine of traditional cars.
D. Hydrogen cars produce water and a little amount heat as by-products, thus reducing air pollution.
35. What can be inferred from the last paragraph?
A. Hydrogen cars have been put into use.
B. Hydrogen cars have a long way to go.
C. The concept of hydrogen cars is relatively new for most people.
D. Hydrogen cars made contributions to making this planet better and healthier.
Tips to Fight Allergies (过敏症）
About one in five people suffer from some kind of allergy, according to a new survey. Seasonal allergies are the most common. While not as severe as food and insect allergies, they can interfere with daily life. Here are some tips to fight allergies.
● _36_ At least you should wash fruits carefully. When possible, cook fruits and/or avoid eating fruit peels (皮). Symptoms of pollen-food (花粉食品) allergy syndrome typically occur when you eat fruit—including its peel—in its raw form. So by peeling or cooking fruit, you can lessen or completely avoid any reaction.
● Keep your hair clean. _37_ Hair gels and pastes cause the hair to become a pollen magnet (磁铁).
_38_ Going to bed swaddled (V. 包裹) in the pollen and mold(霉菌) that your clothing, skin, and hair picked up throughout the day may be the problem. If you can’t bathe at night, make sure you at least wash your face at night, giving your eye area some special attention.
● Stay inside during and directly after thunderstorms and keep house windows shut. _39_ However, thunderstorms actually stir up pollen.
● Bath your dog regularly and avoid allowing your pet to lay in bed with you. Just because that you aren’t allergic to your pet doesn’t mean that they won’t make you sneeze and sniffle. _40_
A. Wash fruits thoroughly.
B. If possible, bathe at night.
C. Pollen is the biggest cause of allergies.
D. Use as few hair products as possible or wash hair every day.
E. Gentle drizzles (毛毛细雨) can decrease pollen counts.
F. A long, cold winter has worsened seasonal allergies for many people.
G. After being outside, your dog can bring pollen, mold, and other allergens into your home.

You said the other day that you were dreaming of a special weekend away from the noisy city and boring life. I am wondering if a day’s tour to the countryside will interest you. If you wish, I can take you to the New Year Picture Village for this weekend.
My plan goes like this. We can go for vegetable collection in the field in the morning, where we can breathe fresh air. After that we can go fishing in the afternoon, which can be great fun. If we are lucky enough, we can enjoy nice fish for supper. After supper, there will be singing and dancing performed by the rural artists.
If you have anything particular in mind, please let me know.
Looking forward to your reply.
