    We have two letters from readers.
Jung-Ping Lin China
    For me, the most impressive commercial I ever saw was a diamond commercial. Early in the morning, a couple of lovers were standing on a deck, facing a beautiful lake. The man began the conversation in a serious tone and said, "We have been together for a long time, and I don't think we should let our relationship keep going like this. "
    Hearing that, the girl turned toward the man, an expression of surprise and sadness appeared on her face. She clearly thought he wanted to leave her, but then the man presented her a ring which he had been holding behind his back.
    When the girl saw the ring, she smiled like a flower. She realized that he was proposing to her. Then the film showed their wedding in a church. Both of them were smiling sweetly. I loved that commercial because the view was so beautiful. In fact, this was a very popular commercial among young single adults in my country.
Christine LePrince from France
    The commercial, I recall, took place on a bus. A girl was going to enjoy a chocolate bar. Everything around her was quiet. When she was starting to bite into her bar, there was a terrible shaking. The girl was surprised, but instead of stopping, she went on and crunched into it another time. That time, it was like an earthquake around her. The girl was so greedy that she didn't care about what was happening around her.
    In my opinion, that TV commercial was very effective. Humor and surprise were combined to create a funny ad. It seemed that chocolate bar was so delicious that you could forget the world around you. I believe that many people, especially children, must have liked this commercial and been influenced to buy that chocolate bar.
1.Why did the girl feel surprised and sad?
A.Because the man wanted to leave her.
B.Because the man didn't show her the ring.
C.Because she misunderstood the man's meaning.
D.Because the man spoke in a serious tone.
2.What happened when the girl was about to eat the chocolate bar?
A.Everybody became quiet.
B.The bus shook violently.
C.An earthquake happened.
D.The bus came to a stop.
3.Why did Christine Leprince like the ad?
A.Because it was about chocolate.
B.Because one could forget the world around.
C.Because the chocolate was delicious.
D.Because it combined humor and surprise.

    Every man wants his son to be somewhat of a clone, not in features but in footsteps. As he grows you also age, and your ambitions become more unachievable. You begin to realize that your boy, in your footsteps, could probably accomplish what you hoped for. But footsteps can be muddied and they can go off in different directions.
    My son Jody has hated school since day one in kindergarten. Science projects waited until the last moment. Book reports weren't written until the final threat.
    I've been a newspaperman all my adult life. My daughter is a university graduate working towards her master's degree in English. But Jody? When he entered the tenth grade he became a “vo-tech” student(技校学生). They're called “motorheads” by the rest of the student body.
    When a secretary in my office first called him “motorhead”,I was shocked. “Hey, he's a good kid,” I wanted to say. “And smart, really.”
    I learned later that motorheads are, indeed, different. They usually have dirty hands and wear dirty work clothes. And they don't often make school honor rolls(光荣榜).
    But being the parent of a motorhead is itself an experience in education. We who labor in clean shirts in offices don't have the abilities that motorheads have. I began to learn this when I had my car crashed. The cost to repair it was estimated at $800. “Hey, I can fix it,” said Jody. I doubted it, but let him go ahead, for I had nothing to lose.
    My son, with other motorheads, fixed the car. They got parts(零件) from a junkyard, and ability from vo-tech classes. The cost was $25 instead of $800.
    Since that first repair job, a broken air-conditioner, a non-functioning washer and a non-toasting toaster have been fixed. Neighbours and co-workers trust their car repairs to him.
    These kids are happiest when doing repairs. They joke and laugh and are living in their own relaxed world. And their minds are bright despite their dirty hands and clothes.
    I have learned a lot from my motorhead: publishers need printers, engineers need mechanics, and architects need builders. Most important, I have learned that fathers don't need clones in footsteps or anywhere else.
    My son may never make the school honor roll. But he made mine.
1.What used to be the author's hope for his son?
A.To avoid becoming his clone.
B.To resemble(类似) him in appearance.
C.To develop in a different direction.
D.To reach the author's unachieved goals.
2.What can we learn about the author's children?
A.His daughter does better in school.
B.His daughter has got a master's degree.
C.His son tried hard to finish homework.
D.His son couldn't write his book reports.
3.The author let his son repair the car because he believed that ________.
A.his son had the ability to fix it
B.it would save him much time
C.it wouldn't cause him any more loss
D.other motorheads would come to help
4.What did the author realize in the end?
A.It is unwise to expect your child to follow your path.
B.It is important for one to make the honor roll.
C.Architects play a more important role than builders.
D.Motorheads have greater ability than office workers.

    Why do zebras have stripes? This question has been stumping both animal experts and zebra fans all over the world for centuries. But now it appears that some researchers in California may have finally solved the age-old mystery!
    Over the years, there have been many theories---Some believed that it was purely accidental and caused by interbreeding (杂交), while others thought it was to confuse predators(食肉动物). Then there were the speculations that the stripes probably helped with camouflage (伪装), keeping the animals cool in the blazing African sun and last but not least, scaring away the troubling flies that always seem to be around. But no one had ever tried to prove any of the theories, with scientific research.
    Determined to solve this age-old mystery, a team of scientists led by, Tim Caro, professor of Wildlife Biology at the University of California, Davis, set to work. They began by comparing the thickness, location, and the stripes on seven species of zebras that live in various geographic locations. They then examined what forces of nature, each one had to battle-ranging from natural predators to temperature to the small insects like flies, which they may be constantly subjected to. To their amazement, the only factor that connected with the stripes was the biting flies. The zebras with the most prominent (突出的) and largest number of stripes, mostly inhabited areas with more flies.
    But that led to another question : why are zebras the only one smart enough to develop the stripes? After all, there are plenty of other animals like horses and donkeys, which are subjected to the same trouble. Upon closer examination of the black and white animals, the researchers noticed that unlike the others, zebras have very short coats of hair, making them particularly susceptible (易受影响的) to getting bitten by the flies!
    While Tim, who published his findings in the online journal, Nature Communications, on April 1st, says that this mystery is finally solved, it has given rise to a new one. Why are these fearless flies who have no qualms(不安) attacking animals that are thousand of times bigger, afraid of black and white stripes? If you have any theories, be sure to add it to the comments below. It may help the professor with his next quest !
1.What does the underlined world “stumping” in the first paragraph most probably mean?
A.Surprised.
B.Excited.
C.Puzzled.
D.Disappointed.
2.What does the second paragraph mainly tell us?
A.People have different ideas about why zebras have stripes.
B.Zebras’ stripes are used to confuse predators.
C.Experts are trying to prove the ideas with scientific research.
D.The stripes of zebras are the result of interbreeding.
3.What surprised the scientists was that _______.
A.the stripes are determined by the location
B.zebras live where there are more flies
C.The stripes have something to do with biting flies
D.stripes vary depending on zebras’ species
4.Why are zebras easy to bite by flies?
A.Because their stripes stand out.
B.Because their colors appeal to flies.
C.Because their hair is short.
D.Because they can’t defend themselves.

Surviving Hurricane Sandy(飓风桑迪)
    Natalie Doan, 14, has always felt lucky to live in Rockaway, New York. Living just a few blocks from the beach, Natalie can see the ocean and hear the waves from her house. “It's the ocean that makes Rockaway so special, ” she says.
    On October 29, 2012, that ocean turned fierce. That night, Hurricane Sandy attacked the East Coast, and Rockaway was hit especially hard. Fortunately, Natalie's family escaped to Brooklyn shortly before the city's bridges closed.
    When they returned to Rockaway the next day, they found their neighbourhood in ruins. Many of Natalie's friends had lost their homes and were living far away. All around her, people were suffering, especially the elderly. Natalie's school was so damaged that she had to temporarily attend a school in Brooklyn.
    In the following few days, the men and women helping Rockaway recover inspired Natalie. Volunteers came with carloads of donated clothing and toys. Neighbours devoted their spare time to helping others rebuild. Teenagers climbed dozens of flights of stairs to deliver water and food to elderly people trapped in powerless high-rise buildings.
    “My mum tells me that I can't control what happens to me, ” Natalie says, “but I can always choose how I deal with it.”
     Natalie's choice was to help.
    She created a website page, matching survivors in need with donors who wanted to help. Natalie posted information about a boy named Patrick, who lost his baseball card collection when his house burned down. Within days, Patrick's collection was replaced.
    In the coming months, her website page helped lots of kids: Christopher, who received a new basketball; Charlie, who got a new keyboard. Natalie also worked with other organizations to bring much-needed supplies to Rockaway. Her efforts made her a famous person. Last April, she was invited to the White House and honored as a Hurricane Sandy Champion of Change.
    Today, the scars(创痕)of destruction are still seen in Rockaway, but hope is in the air. The streets are clear, and many homes have been rebuilt. “I can't imagine living anywhere but Rockaway,” Natalie declares. “My neighbourhood will be back, even stronger than before.”

    Understanding body language-you are in love but you do not know whether she/he also loves you.
