It is easy for us to tell our friends from our enemies. But can other animals do the same? Elephants can! They can use their sense of vision and smell to tell the difference between people who pose a threat and those who do not.
In Kenya, researchers found that elephants react differently to clothing worn by men of the Maasai and Kamba ethnic groups. Young Maasai men spear animals and thus pose a threat to elephants; Kamba men are mainly farmers and are not a danger to elephants.
In an experiment conducted by animal scientists, elephants were first presented with clean clothing or clothing that had been worn for five days by either a Maasai or a Kamba man. When the elephants detected the smell of clothing worn by a Maasai man, they moved away from the smell faster and took longer to relax than when they detected the smells of either clothing worn by Kamba men or clothing that had not been worn at all.
Garment color also plays a role, though in a different way. In the same study, when the elephants saw red clothing not worn before, they reacted angrily, as red is typically worn by Maasai men. Rather than running away as they did with the smell, the elephants acted aggressively toward the red clothing.
The researchers believe that the elephants’ emotional reactions are due to their different interpretations of the smells and the sights. Smelling a potential danger means that a threat is nearby and the best thing to do is run away and hide. Seeing a potential threat without its smell means that risk is low. Therefore, instead of showing fear and running away, the elephants express their anger and become aggressive.
49. According to the passage, which of the following statements is true about Kamba and Maasai people?
(A) Both Kamba and Maasai people traditionally wear red clothing. (B) Kamba people raise elephants for farming.
(C) Both Kamba and Maasai people are elephant hunters. (D) Maasai people are a threat to elephants.
50. How did the elephants react to smell in the study?
(A) They attacked a man with the smell of new clothing.
(B) They were frightened and ran away when they smelled their enemies.
(C) They became anxious when they smelled Kamba-scented clothing.
(D) They needed time to relax when smelling something unfamiliar.
51. What is the main idea of this passage?
(A) Scientists are now able to control elephants’ emotions. (B) Elephants attack people who wear red clothing.
(C) Elephants use sight and smell to detect danger. (D) Some Kenyan tribes understand elephants’ emotions very well.
52. What can be inferred about the elephant’s behavior from this passage?
(A) Elephants learn from their experiences. (B) Elephants are more intelligent than other animals.
(C) Elephants have sharper sense of smell than sight. (D) Elephants tend to attack rather than escape when in danger.
tuesdays with Morrie, written by the American writer Mitch Albom, tells the true story of a teacher-student relationship. Morrie Schwartz was Mitch Albom’s favorite professor when Albom was a college student in the late 1970s. Then, the two men lost touch. Two decades later, Albom visited his old teacher again. By then, Schwartz was dying.
For weeks, the two men met on Tuesdays to discuss the art of living. “Dying is one thing to be sad about,” Schwartz told Albom, “but living unhappily is another thing.” He advised the younger man to reject popular culture, with its emphasis on appearances and material goods. Instead, he urged a life based on moral choices—and on love. “The most important thing in life is to learn how to give out love, and to let it come in,” Schwartz said.
And Schwartz did just that. Although he was dying, he did not want pity. He preferred to see friends and to try to do good. “I decided I’m going to live, or at least try to live, the way I want—with dignity, with courage, with humor, with composure,” he told Albom.
How did he do that?
“Once you learn how to die, you learn how to live,” Schwartz explained. “To know you’re going to die . . . you can actually be more involved in your life while you’re living.”
Albom taped his talks with Schwartz and turned them into tuesdays With Morrie, a book that has sold more than 11 million copies since its publication in 1997. Obviously, people were eager for the book’s message about living positively and with purpose in a superficial world. As one critic wrote, the book was gratefully received as “a gift to mankind.”
53.( ) This article is mainly about ________.
(A) the reason why Albom met his college teacher again (B) the disease that took away Schwartz’s life
(C) the touching relationship between Schwartz and Albom (D) tuesdays with Morrie and the story behind it
54. ( ) According to the article, which of the following statements is true?
(A) Schwartz and Albom met on Tuesdays to talk about art in their lives.
(B) Schwartz had been seriously sick by the time he met Albom again.
(C) Albom and Schwartz had been in contact with each other for twenty years.
(D) Schwartz wrote down his ideas and words with Albom’s help.
55.( ) Schwartz advised that ________.
(A) Albom accept popular culture (B) people work harder to achieve their goals
(C) people learn how to love and be loved (D) Albom write a book on the matters they talked about
56.( ) The word composure is close to ________ in meaning.
(A) excitement (B) peace (C) indifference (D) care
答案： (1)D (2)B (3)C (4)B (5)C
Working or traveling in another country can often be difficult when one cannot speak the language. English is often thought of as the language of international communication, however only ten percent of the world’s population can speak English. What if everyone could speak a common language? There would certainly be fewer misunderstandings. These were the thoughts of Dr. Ludovic Lazar Zamenhof, who, in 1887, invented a language called Esperanto that he hoped would be spoken by everyone.
Dr. Zamenhof lived in Bialystok, a town in Poland where several different languages were spoken. He grew up hearing Polish, Russian, German, and Yiddish being spoken and was eventually fluent in ten languages. Zamenhof felt that an inability to communicate caused tension between the different national groups in his hometown. He did not want people to stop speaking in their native tongues, so he decided to create a language that he hoped everyone could speak as a second language. It used parts of European languages and its name—Esperanto—meant “one who hopes.”
At first, Esperanto was quite popular and in the 1920s it was suggested that the League of Nations (which was the first international organization) should use it. France, however, objected as they thought that French should be the language of international relations. In the 1930s and 40s, Esperanto began to suffer. The Russian leader Josef Stalin called it “the language of spies” and the German leader Adolf Hitler was suspicious of those who spoke the language. Esperanto speakers in Russia and Germany were imprisoned and killed. Even in The U.S., people who spoke Esperanto were suspected of being Russian spies.
Despite these problems, Esperanto has continued to grow. At present, it is thought that there are around two million Esperanto speakers. In order to promote contact among Esperanto speakers, The Universal Esperanto Association (UEA) was founded. It is by far the largest international organization promoting the use of Esperanto. Every year Esperanto speakers from around the world gather for the UEA’s Universal Congress of Esperanto. The Congress, which takes place in a different country each year, includes theater performances, lectures, and sightseeing all in Esperanto.
57.( ) The passage is mainly about ______.
(A) why Esperanto is still a popular language spoken worldwide(B) how Esperanto was created
(C) the promotion of Esperanto (D) the rise and fall of Esperanto
58.( ) Why did Dr. Zamenhof create Esperanto?
(A) He hoped everyone could speak it as a second language.
(B) He wanted to challenge himself.
(C) The League of Nations requested that he do so.
(D) He didn’t like it when English is used as the language of international communication.
59.( ) Which of the following statements is NOT true about Esperanto?
(A) It lost momentum in later stages. (B) Its name meant “one who hopes.”
(C) All the Europeans embraced it. (D) It was suggested that the League of Nations use it.
60.( ) Which of the following best describes the tone of this passage?
(A) Sarcastic. (B) Humorous. (C) Indifferent. (D) Informational.
