C A couple from Miami, Bill and Simone Butler, spent sixty-six days in a life-raft(救 生艇) in the seas of Central America after their boat sank. Twenty-one days after they left Panama in their boat, Simony, they met some whales. “They started to hit the side of the boat,” said Bill, “and then suddenly we heard water.” Two minutes later, the boat was sinking. They jumped into the life-raft and watched the boat go under the water. For twenty days they had tins of food, biscuits, and bottles of water. They also had a fishing-line and a machine to make salt water into drinking water — two things which saved their lives. They caught eight to ten fish a day and ate them raw(生 的). Then the line broke. “So we had no more fish until something very strange happened. Some sharks came to feed, and the fish under the raft were afraid and came to the surface. I caught them with my hands.” About twenty ships passed them, but no one saw them. After fifty days at sea their life-raft was beginning to break up. Then suddenly it was all over. A fishing boat saw them and picked them up. They couldn’t stand up. So the captain carried them onto his boat and took them to Costa Rica. Their two months at sea was over. 38. Bill and Simone were traveling _______ when they met some whales. A. in a life-raft B. in Miami C. in Simony D. in Panama 39. The whales hit the side of the boat, and then _______. A. they brought in a lot of water B. they broke the side of the boat C. they pulled the boat D. they went under the water 40. During their days at sea, _______ saved their lives. A. tins of food and bottles of water B. a fishing-line and a machine C. whales and sharks D. Twenty passing ships 41. When they saw the fishing boat which later picked them up, _______. A. they were too happy to stand up B. they couldn’t wait to climb onto the boat C. their life-raft was beginning to break up D. they knew their two months at sea would be over D Cause and effect is one way to explain things that happen around us. Many things happen because something caused or influenced them to happen. Sometimes it is hard to look at a cause and find out what causes the effect. It may help you to start with the effect and use your reasoning (推理的) skills. Think about all the things you know that could be reasons for the effect you can see. For example，you may see someone putting on a heavy jacket. This is the effect. To
look for a cause, think to yourself, “What would make someone put on a heavy jacket?” Maybe the person is going outside into very cold weather. Maybe the person works in the pengu in pen (企鹅圈养地) at Sea World. Maybe the person is going to visit an ice skating rink where the air is kept very cold. All of these things could be a cause for putting on a heavy jacket. Now, think about a second example. The effect is a boy named Tony has to go to the head teacher’s office. What are the possible causes? Maybe he fought with another student. Maybe he is just being picked up early. Maybe he is being given a prize! Here is another example for you to think about its cause and effect. Carol，13， was trying to fall asleep when her 8-year-old brother, Doug, came into her room. He looked around a bit，but seemed really out of it. Then Doug went back into the hallway and stood there looking straight up at the hall light for quite a while. Little brothers can be very strange，but this was really much too strange. Carol di dn’t know what to do. Just then, Carol’s father appeared and explained that Doug was sleepwalking. What’s the cause and effect, could you tell? 42. According to the second paragraph，which of the following is an effect? A. Someone puts on a heavy jacket. B. Someone works in the penguin pen. C. Someone will go outside into cold weather. D. Someone will go to visit an ice skating rink. 43. Tony has to go to the head teacher’s office. Which of the following isn’t the possible cause? A. He fought with another student. B. He is going shopping. C. He is being picked up early. D. He is being given a prize. 44. What was Doug doing when his sister Carol tried to fall asleep? A. He was going outside. B. He was reading a story. C. He was sleepwalking. D. He was looking for his dad. 45. Which of the following is cause and effect? A. Tony got up and had a glass of water. B. We came home and found him sleeping. C. The ball was lost and a window was broken. D. Tim was late again and his teacher got angry. VI.词汇运用（本题有15小题，每小题1分，共计15分） A. 根据首字母提示或括号内所给汉语意思，写出空白处各单词的正确形式（每空一词） 。 When my family moved to America in 2010 from a small village in Guangdong, China, we brought not only our luggage, but also our rules and culture.
