Passage One

My grandfather came from Hungary and was the only one in his family who settled down in the United States.The rest of his family remained in Europe.When World War I broke out,he seemed to have become another man,downherated.Such obvious change was not born out of his welfare,but out of fear:if his only son,my uncle,had to go to war,it would be cousin fighting against cousin.

One day in 1918,my Uncle Milton received his draft notice.My grandparents were very upset.But my mother,at the age of 10,felt on top of the world about her soldier brother going off to war.Realizing how he was regarded by his little sister and all of her friends,my uncle bought them all service pins,which meant that they had a loved one in the service.All the little girls were delighted.

The moment came when my uncle and the other soldiers,without any training but all in uniforms,boarded the train.The band played and the crowd cheered.Although no one noticed,I’m sure my grandmother had a tear in her eye for the only son.The train slowly pulled out,but not about a thousand yards when it suddenly paused.Everyone stared in wonder as the train slowly returned to the station.There was a dead silence before the doors opened and the men started to step out.Someone shouted,”The war is over.”For a moment,nobody moved,but then the people heard someone bark orders at the soldiers.The men lined up in two lines,walked down the steps,and with the band playing,marched down the street,as returning heroes,to be welcomed home.My mother said it was great day,but she was just a little disappointed that it didn’t last a tiny bit longer.

Passage Two

Three years ago,five parrots were set free in a wild place of Arizona,thousands of miles from the Channel Islands in Jersey sher they had been looked after by zookeepers.No evolutionary strategies informed them how to behave in this new Landscape of mountainous pine forest unoccupied by their king for 50 years.To the researchers’surprise,they failed to make contact with a group of wild parrots imported from Mexico and set free at the same time.Within 24 hours the reintroducing ended in failure,and the poor birds were back in cages,on their way to the safety of the Arizona reintroduction programme.

Ever since then,the programme has enjoyed great success,mainly because the birds now being set free are Mexican birds illegally caught in the wild,confiscated(没收)on arrival north of the border,and raised by their parents in the safety of the programme.The experience shows how little we know about the behaviour and psychology(心理)of parrots,as Peter Bennett,a bird researcher,points out:”Reintroducing species of high intelligence like parrots is a lot more difficult.People like parrots,always treating them as nothing more than pers or valuable‘collectables’.”

Now that many species of parrot are in immediate danger of dying out,biologists are working together to study the natural history and the behaviour of this family of birds.Last year was an important turning point:conservationists founded the World Parrot Trust,based at Hayle in Cornwall,to support research into both wild and caged birds.

Research on parrots is vital for two reasons.Forest,as the Arizona programme showed,when reintroducing parrots to the wild,we need to be aware of what the birds must know if they are to survive in their natural home.We also need to learn more about the needs of parrots keot as pets,particularly as the Trust’s campaign does not attempt to discourage the practice,but rather urges people who buy parrots as pets to choose birds raised by humans.

40.What do we know about the area where the five parrots were reintroduced?

A.Its landscape is new to parrots of their king.

B.It used to be home to parrots of their kind.

C.It is close to where they had been kept.

D.Pine trees were planted to attract birds.

41.The reintroducing experience three years ago shows that man-raised parrots ______.

A.can find their way back home in Jersey

B.are unable to recognize their parents

C.are unable to adapt to the wild

D.can produce a new species

42.Why are researches on parrots important according to the passage?

A.The Trust shows great concern for the programme.

B.We need to knows more about how to preserve parrots

C.Many people are interested in collecting parrots.

D.Parrots’intelligence may some day benefit people.

43.According to the passage,people are advised_______.

A.to treat wild and caged parrots equally

B to set up comfortable homes for parrots

C.not to keep wild parrots as pets

D.not to let more parrots go to the wild
