correct answer to each of the questions
Asian elephants used to live in the forests from Iraq to Southern China. Since these forests were cut
down to make room for farms and villages, the elephants had to live in small, hilly regions. These small
areas cannot supply enough food for them. An adult elephant eats about 331 pounds of grasses, leaves and
other plants each day. When forests were larger, Asian elephants migrated with the seasons. In this way,
they found new food supplies. The plants and trees could also grow again after elephants left.
Today, there is nowhere for the elephants to go. Experts say that the Asian elephant population is about
55,000 living on a habitat of about 19,000 square miles (30,400 square kilometres). In contrast to this, the
African elephant population is about 10 times this size and live on almost 3 million square miles (4.8
million square kilometers) of available habitat.
51. How much does an adult elephant eat a day?
A. About 150 kg of grasses leaves and other plants.
B. About 331 kg of grasses leaves and other
plants.
C. About 19,000 kg of grasses leaves and other plants. D. About 30,400 kg of grasses leaves and other
plants.
52. How can Asian elephants find new food supplies?
A. They made forests larger.
B. They found other plants.
C. They migrated with the seasons.
D. They could grow plants and trees.

The word Olympic comes from the name of the town Olympia in Greece, where the ancient Olympic
Games were always held. The first Olympic Games were held in 776 B.C., and the Games took place

to take part in the Games in 1900. Since that time, the Games have been held every four years as in the
ancient Greece. The Games, however, did not take place in 1916, 1940 and 1944 because of the two

63. The explosion was said to have been caused by time .
64. wed rather you didnt smoke .
65. Few students paid attention to / took notice of what the teacher was saying
Part 2:

Sample 1:
When I read a book, I am swept away into my own little world discovering new things and imagining
places only I can see. It is a private dialogue between the author and me. There is no one to criticize or
question me. I can read the book at my own speed and savor it every moment. Books offer us the world.
We can learn about history, geography, famous and interesting people and different countries. It is the
cheapest form of travel that I know! I love to read a variety of authors and learn about new ideas and ways
of expression. I also try to read a variety of books, from romance to biographies and everything in between.
I especially like adventure stories because it is in here that I can really put my imagination to work! There
is such a vast amount of information available in books. From the early ages to our recent years we can
continue to learn about a variety of topics and interests. School textbooks offer us the basics for learning
how to learn-from math to science, from language to arts. Recently, my father and brother were interested
in building a new table and chairs for our family's dinning room. Neither one of them is a carpenter. So
how did they do it, your might ask? They bought a book that showed them how! A good book truly merits
respect whether it is a "how-to" book, a good novel or a school textbook.
Sample 2:
It is often said: Tell me what you are reading and I will tell you who you are. For me, a good book is
always a good teacher guiding me through life as well as a true companion encouraging me and consulting
me in my desperate straits. In fact, interesting books are a source of invaluable knowledge to those who
want to master everything they havent known before. Through masterpieces all over the world we can
realize the whole outstanding culture and civilization of mankind in every aspect such as literature, science,
sociology, and so on. Nobody denies the important role of good books in developing mans knowledge.
The more we read valuable books the more we become wise and experienced. Next, good books are true
companions who always share our joys and sorrows in our daily activities. Are you in low spirits and
disappointed in your affairs? Read wise advice through books by profound scholars and authors. Are you
sad? Read subtle humorous stories of well-known humorists in the world. All your sorrows and
disappointments will vanish at once. In summary, good books help us train our personality. They help us
distinguish the Good from the Bad and they lead us to the True, the Good and the Beautiful.
