Robert likes to take a walk in the park after work. One day when he was walking in the park, he heard a woman calling his name. He stopped to look around, but didn’t see anything 24 . Shortly after Robert saw it, it was gone.

Though Robert felt a little strange, he did not think about it too much and sat down for a rest on a bench in the park. Then he noticed the snake he had just seen 25. Robert was too afraid to move away from the bench. Right at this moment, a woman behind him shouted, “Come here, Robert. You can’t stay on the bench like that. 26.”

In surprise, Robert turned around and said to the woman, “Excuse me, but that’s not a very nice thing to say, and in fact some people say I’m handsome.

I’m not talking to you,” said the woman.I’m telling Robert, my pet snake, to get down from the bench, not you.

Julie: A book about dinosaurs. My son is a big fan of Brachiosaurus.

Arnold: Brachi... what?

Julie: Brachiosaurus. B-R-A-C-H-I-O-S-A-U-R-U-S.

Arnold: Wow, it must be a BIG animal.

Julie: It is. It's the biggest dinosaur.

Arnold: Then, what does the smallest dinosaur look like?

Julie: Here! The Compsognathus is the smallest in the dinosaur would. It's about the size of a chicken!

Arnold: Well, I'm starting to feel interested in these animals. How many kinds of dinosaurs are there?

Julie: Oh, there are so many kinds of them. For example, the Tyrannosaurus rex is very terrible because it eats other dinosaurs. And the Pterodactylus can fly like a bird! Some people say it's not a dinosaur, but it's my favorite.

Arnold: Ha! It looks very funny. What would the world look like with so many interesting dinosaurs?

Julie: Interesting? You should feel lucky that they can be seen only in the museum, not on the streets!

Ethan went camping with his friends. He was glad to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city and find some peace and quiet. They rode bikes, fished, cooked hot dogs over the campfire, and exchanged stories with each other. At night the sky filled with stars, and it was strange to fall asleep without the noise of cars and people. Ethan decided that he should go camping more often.

Everything was great: the food, the wine, the music, and the dancing. I was impressed with the delicious cake you made. Would you give me the recipe?

I also enjoyed meeting your friends and family. I had a very interesting talk with your cousin, Joe White. He was a lot of fun and very friendly.

Here is what Matt said about his life changes in an interview.

It’s like getting a new life, I mean, living with the Tragers.

Being the oldest kid in Rosario Landing isn’t something you’d be proud of. People who go there usually want younger kids, babies even, because babies remember little about their real parents, and it’s easier for them to become close to their new parents. I felt happy for those who left with their new families. I really did. But it got harder to be happy for them when you were never the one to go.

I never thought Nicole and Thomas would pick me. They said they felt like they had known me for many years. After spending a few afternoons with me, they decided to take me home.

It’s never easy to have a stranger in your life. Lori is nice, but she’s too polite, like I was just one of her parents’ friends. We talk, but not very warmly. Sean deals with it better than his older sister. I slept in his room before I had my own, and we got to play tricks on each other three nights later, like real brothers.

If there’s anything I can do to make them feel easier with me. I’ll try. I Want to, because, for the first time in my life, I feel that I belong somewhere.

42.
From the interview, what do we know about the children at Rosario Landing?
They are not treated kindly.
They have serious learning problems.
They do not live with their parents.
They were born there.
43.
What can we learn about Matt from the interview?
He shares a room with Sean now.
He hopes to get close to Lori and Sean.
He finds his new life is easier than he thought.
He misses his friends in Rosario Lauding.
44.
Which is true about the Tragers?
Nicole and Thomas decided to have another baby.
Thomas thinks Matt looks just like him at a young age.
There were two children in the family before.
Sean is the oldest child in the family.
45.
What does it in the fourth paragraph mean?
paragraph 段落
Living with a stranger.
Talking to one’s parents’ friends.
Playing tricks on one’s brother.
Being polite to a stranger.
