    (A)

    The long hiccup
    For many people the subject of hiccups(嗝)is a joke,but for Harry Mendis,a fifteen-year-old schoolboy from Birmingham,it was something quite different.

    His hiccups began one Sunday lunchtime and continued day and night for two weeks. After the first week, Harry's parents took him to hospital,but it took another week for the doctors to cure his attack.

    Harry,who is now back at school, described what happened to him.

    “When I began to hiccup,I drank a glass of water but that didn't do any good.That evening I had hiccups every four seconds. We tried everything to stop them.I held my breath and drank cold drinks.My father even tried to give me a shock but that didn't work either.”

    After a week of sleepless nights,he went to hospital.The doctors took an X-ray of his chest but they couldn't find anything wrong.

    “They gave me some medicine and my hiccups slowed down, but it was another week before the medicine worked completely andmy hiccups stopped.”

    Harry was very lucky.The world record holder is the American ____ farmer Charles Osborne,who hiccuped for sixty-eight years.He stopped in 1990at last,but nobody knows why.




    21.Harry's hiccups lasted ____ .

      A.a week B.fourteen days C.twenty-eight days D.one month

      C.hiccuped at night     D.couldn't stop hiccuping

    24.His hiccups completely stopped one week after the doctor ____ .

      A.gave him some medicine B.took an X-ray of his chest

    A chicken lays an egg.You feel sleepy.And a tree loses its leaves.All of these things,and many more,happen in a certain way,at a certain time each day or each year.They take place beacuse of something called an internal clock.The word internal means“inside of”,and the internal clock is inside a certain part of every plant and animal.For example,there is an internal clock in the head of a chicken.

    The internal clock receives a sig nal,or message,from the world around it.Some of these signals include light,heat, darkness and cold.When the internal clock gets the signal,the body of the plant or animal produces a chemical that causes the living thing to do different actions.For example,daylight signals the chicken's internal clock to make a chemical.Then this chemical causes the chicken to lay eggs.

    People are learning a lot about internal clocks.Farmers have even learned how to fool a chicken's internal clock so that the chicken lays more eggs!

    26.A signal is____ .

    Nobody knows exactly how many people are learning English in the world today...but it's certainly more than it was 50 years ago...(88) For example ,fifty years ago very few people in China learned English,but now the number of people learning English in China is bigger than the population of the United States!(89) So there are probably about 300million people learning English at the moment,which is more than any other language...(90) and some experts(专家)say that by the year 2050-that's about fifty years from now -half of the world's population will speak English...I'm not sure,I think we'll have to wait andsee...
