I forget to send you the package that you should have received on May 20,1956,your fifth birthday. The gift inside has aged, but I felt that you might still wish to have it .Sorry for the lateness! Love, Angel of Joy

Capuchin monkeys usually make a lot of noise when they find food. They are letting their families know where the food is.
One day, a scientist named Dr. Mario Di Bitetti saw that a monkey kept quiet when it found food. The monkey didn’t let the other monkeys know about the bananas. Dr. Di Bitetti wondered why “It looked like she was trying to keep the bananas a secret from the other monkeys,” he said.
Some scientists used to think that animals couldn’t control the sounds coming from their mouths. This would mean that monkeys would make noise even if there was not enough food to share. Dr. Di Bitetti had a different idea.
Dr. Di Bitetti put some bananas on a platform(平台) in the trees where the monkeys lived. Sometimes he put a lot of bananas on the platform so that there would be enough for all of the monkeys to share .Sometimes he put only a few so that there would not be enough bananas for everyone.
Dr. Di Bitetti did this for a whole year. Each time Dr. Di Bitettiput bananas on the platform, he watched carefully. He wanted to see if the monkeys sometimes kept quiet when they found bananas.
Dr. Di Bitetti found three things that made monkeys remain silent. First ,when monkeys found only a few bananas, they often didn’t tell their families. Second, in seasons when the forest provided only a little bit of food, monkeys kept quiet when they found bananas. Third , monkeys kept quiet when they had many friends nearby and would not have enough food for everyone.
Dr. Di Bitetti’s banana test showed that monkeys can control the sounds coming from their mouths. It seems that they know when to keep quiet and when to call their families.
( )68.Capuchin monkeys usually make a lot of noise when they find food to ________

D. can’t control the sounds coming from their mouths.
Most people hope to have a memory which helps them succeed in study, work and life. Can memory be improved? Luckily, hundreds of studies in the past 50 years have already given us a definite answer.
A healthy lifestyle keeps your brain young and memory sharp. First of all, it is necessary to have a healthy diet. Eating more food rich in B vitamins and Vitamin E, such as vegetables and lean(瘦的) meat, helps you have a better memory. Doing exercise can keep your brain alive ,too. Proper exercise provides much needed oxygen for the brain. Running ,riding a bike ,swimming and even walking two or three times a week are helpful. Moreover, getting enough sleep is important. Only when your brain gets a good rest, can it work well. The healthier your lifestyle is ,the better your memory will become ,but do not expect a sudden change---it takes a long time to make a difference.
Memory skills help you remember things better. The following three are the most widely used. Chunking* is a way of remembering a piece of information by cutting it into smaller ones. For example ,to memorize a ten--digit telephone number 2127983630,you can divide the digits into three groups: first 212,then 798,and lastly 3630.This method is far more effective than remembering a string* of 10 digits. Organization means organizing information into groups of the same kind. For example, trees ,grass and flowers are plants; tigers, pandas, horses and cows are animals ,Imagery is remembering newly learnt information by using your imagination and connecting it with something that you are familiar with.
However, memory skills will hardly work if you don’t understand the information. What’s more, only a regular review can make the memory last long. That is why students are always advised to go over what they have learnt after one day and then after three days, and then use it as regularly as possible.
Human brains are like muscles that need nutrients and exercise to become stronger. If you make a few lifestyle changes and try some memory skills ,you can certainly improved your memory.
( )72.How many ways of keeping a healthy lifestyle are mentioned in the passage?
A. Two B. Three C. Four D. Five
( )73.Which of the following examples is the use of the skill “organization”?
A. Remembering the word “sad ”by putting it into the group of “feeling ”
B. Remembering the meaning of the word “red” by connecting it with fire
C. Remembering a long and difficult passage by understanding its meaning.
D. Remembering the post number 0708591 by diving it into 070 and 8571
( )74.According to the passage, why should we review what we’ve learnt?
A. To use it better every day B. To understand it in a better way
C. To improve memory skills D. To remember it for a longer time
( )75.The passage is written to tell us______.
A. not everyone has a good memory
B. memory skills are not difficult to learn
C. memory can be improved in some ways
D. it is important to have a healthy lifestyle
Having a cheetah as a pet in the house? Does it sound scary to you? But for a family in South Africa, one cheetah is treated as a VIP (Very Important Person) in the house.
The big cheetah is named Jolie, after the film star Angelina Jolie. 76 She can often be found eating from the kitchen table, taking a short sleep on the sofa, or even sleeping on Lucy and Jeff’s bed. The big cat also sleeps and plays with the Browns’ other pet, the more usual one — a sheepdog (牧羊犬). 77
Having a cheetah as a pet is unusual. At first, Mrs Brown wasn’t willing to keep a cheetah as a pet. She said, “ 78 But we are now happy that we did it — she is part of the family.”
Just like her name, four-year-old Jolie has achieved a celebrity status (名人地位) in the Browns’ hometown. Fans often come to their home to take pictures of her. 79
However, a cheetah is always a cheetah. 80 “She makes a lot of mess in the house, urinating (小便) everywhere and chewing everything. It’s her wild instincts (本能),” said Mrs Brown.
There might be some problems of having a cheetah as a pet in the house, but some unusual fun must also be waiting ahead.
根据短文内容, 从方框中选出五个句子填入文中空缺处, 使短文内容完整正确。
A. Interestingly, Jolie enjoys all the special attention that is paid to her.
B. I was really pleased to have a cheetah as a pet at the beginning.
C. Though Jolie is now a pet in the house, she still has some wild habits.
D. She is surely the VIP at Lucy and Jeff Brown’s home.
E. I was really against the idea of getting a cheetah as a pet.
F. An impossible friendship has happened between these two animals.
G.. She is loved by the film star and she becomes the film star’s pet.
