  According to scientists’ research, the month in which babies are born could affect them in some ways.

  Babies born in spring get sick easily. Children born under Aquarius (Jan. 21st—Feb. 19th) may be less clever than those born in other seasons. They may also have shorter lives than those born in autumn. Scientists believe many of the differences can be explained by the mother’s exposure to sunlight in pregnancy (怀孕). Sunlight helps lead to the production of vitamin D in the body. The lack (缺乏) of vitamin D in the first months of life may have a bad effect on health.

  Vitamin D is called the “sunshine vitamin”. It has a good effect on health. A study showed that people born from April to June had slightly shorter lives than those born in October, November or December. Similar studies in the US showed that people born in autumn lived about 160 days longer than those born in spring.

  Professor Russell Foster said the conclusions were surprising and interesting. He added, “These are small effects but they are very, very clear. I am not giving voice to star signs and they are just for fun. But it is true that we are affected by our season of birth.”

  ( )6. A child’s season of birth can affect all the following things EXCEPT ________ according to the first two paragraphs.

  A. his health B. his height

  C. his length of life D. his quality of being clever

  ( )7. What does the underlined word “exposure” mean in Chinese?

  A. 偏爱 B. 抗拒 C. 过敏 D. 暴露

  ( )8. What can we know about vitamin D according to the passage?

  A. It comes from sunlight. B. It helps people live longer.

  C. Sunlight prevents its production. D. It does harm to people’s health.

  ( )9. Which of the following is TRUE according to the passage?

  A. Women should get enough sunlight in pregnancy.

  B. Children born under Aquarius are cleverer than those born in autumn.

  C. People born in May will live longer than those born in October.

  D. Professor Russell Foster is interested in star signs and believes in them.

  ( )10. What does the passage mainly tell us?

  A. People can know the length of life by star sign.

  B. Women should choose to give birth to children in spring.

  C. A child’s season of birth has an effect on him or her.

  D. Vitamin D is very important to people’s health.

  Pisces is the twelfth star sign. There is a legend about its name.

  Long, long ago, there was a war between gods and a bad monster (怪物). It lasted ten years. One day, the gods were surprised to find that the monster was coming towards them. The goat god Pan shouted a warning and tried to change himself into a fish. One god, Aphrodite, took her little boy Eros and tried to hide among the bushes near Euphrates River. She was the god of love and her son was the god of war. It is said that two fish swam to carry Aphrodite and her child to safety. Some people also believe that Aphrodite and Eros changed into fish themselves and swam away to safety. Later the fish represent Aphrodite and her son Eros.

  As they appeared in the sky, the two fish were tied together by a rope (绳子). Some said that Aphrodite tied the little boy to her body so that he would not get lost as they swam away to safety. That’s the story about Pisces.

  In Western countries, some people believe people will share similar characteristics if they have the same star sign. So if you’re born between February 19th and March 20th, your star sign is Pisces. It means that you are generous, easy-going and creative.

  ( ) 11. What does the underlined word ‘legend’ mean in paragraph One?

  A. an old story B. a famous person C. a war D. a star

  ( ) 12. Why were the two fish tied together by a rope according to the some people?

  B. The monster tied them together.

  C. Aphrodite tied the little boy to her body so that he would not get lost.

  D. The goat god Pan tied them together.

  ( ) 13. What god was Aphrodite?

  A. The god of love. B. The god of hope.

  C. The god of war. D. The god of desire.

  ( ) 14. If Tom was born on March 8th, 1983, he may share the following characteristics EXCET being __________.

  A. generous B. easy-going C. creative D. smart

  “USA? Britain? Which country is better to study in?”

  We often hear such discussions. As important, Without, thousands, hot, nearer, why, much, away, Nothing, year

  China opens its door, studying abroad has become a dream for many Chinese students. They would like to know the world well.

  It’s true that studying abroad can help students develop themselves. Their foreign language skills will be improved and it may be easier to find jobs.

  But there are problems that should be considered. Language is the first. Students must spend a lot of time learning another language and getting used to a different culture.

  Students must also learn to live without parents’ care and deal with all kinds of things they haven’t had to do before, like looking after themselves. There are reports about Chinese students abroad running into an oce an of difficulties and giving up finally. When they have to take care of themselves, it is hard for students to study well.

  Finally, studying abroad brings a heavy burden(负担)to the family. For most Chinese parents, the cost of studying abroad is very high. But is it worth it?

  We know that there are many famous people who have achieved success through their hard work in China.

  Liu Xiang is a good example. Once an American teacher invited him there, but he refused.

  He kept training hard with his Chinese teacher. He surprised the world when he won a gold medal at the Athens Olympic Games. So when you wonder which country is better to study in, think again.

  Title: Studying at home or study 1 ?

  Phenomenon(现象) Studying abroad has become a 2 for Chinese students.

  Advantages It is helpful for Chinese students to 3 themselves.

  It is helpful for Chinese students to 4 foreign language skills.

  Pisces is the twelfth star sign. There is a legend about its name.

  Long, long ago, there was a war between gods and a bad monster (怪物). It lasted ten years. One day, the gods were surprised to find that the monster was coming towards them. The goat god Pan shouted a warning and tried to change himself into a fish. One god, Aphrodite, took her little boy Eros and tried to hide among the bushes near Euphrates River. She was the god of love and her son was the god of war. It is said that two fish swam to carry Aphrodite and her child to safety. Some people also believe that Aphrodite and Eros changed into fish themselves and swam away to safety. Later the fish represent Aphrodite and her son Eros.

  As they appeared in the sky, the two fish were tied together by a rope (绳子). Some said that Aphrodite tied the little boy to her body so that he would not get lost as they swam away to safety. That’s the story about Pisces.

  In Western countries, some people believe people will share similar characteristics if they have the same star sign. So if you’re born between February 19th and March 20th, your star sign is Pisces. It means that you are generous, easy-going and creative.
