Washoe is a young chimpanzee （黑猩猩）. She is no 36 chimpanzee, though. Scientists are doing research 37 her. They want to see how civilized （驯化） she can 38 . Already she can do many things a human being does.
For example, she has been learning how to exchange 39 with people. The scientists are teaching her 40 language. When she wants to be picked 41 , Washoe points up with one finger. She rubs her teeth with her finger 42 she wants to brush her teeth. This is done after every meal.
Washoe has also been 43 to find answers to problems. Once she was put in a 44 with food hanging from the ceiling. It was too high to 45 . After she considered the 46 , she got a tall box to 47 . The food was still too high to be reached. Washoe found a 48 pole. Then she climbed onto the 49 , grasped （抓取） the pole, and 50 down the food with the pole.
Washoe 51 like a human, too. The scientists keep her in a fully furnished house. After a hard 52 in the lab, she goes home. 53 she plays with her toys. She 54 enjoys watching television before going to bed.
Scientists hope to 55 more about people by studying our closest relative -- the chimpanzee.

第三部分: 阅读理解 （共两节，满分40分）
Most animals have little connection with animals of a different kind, unless they hunt them for food. Sometimes, however, two kinds of animals come together in a partnership （伙伴关系） which is good for both of them. You may have noticed some birds sitting on the backs of sheep. This is not because they want a ride, but because they find easy food in the parasites （寄生虫） on sheep. The sheep allow the birds to do so because they remove the cause of discomfort. So although they can manage without each other, they do better together.
Sometimes an animal has a plant partner. The relationship develops until the two partners cannot manage without each other. This is so in the corals （珊瑚） of the sea. In their skins they have tiny plants which act as “dustmen”, taking some of the waste products from the coral and giving in return oxygen which the animal needs to breathe. If the plants are killed, or are even prevented from receiving light so that they cannot live normally, the corals will die.
56. Some birds like to sit on a sheep because _______.
A. they can eat its parasites
B. they enjoy travelling with the sheep
C. they depend on the sheep for existence
D. they find the position most comfortable
57. The underlined word “they” in the last sentence of the first paragraph refers to _______.
A. birds and parasites B. birds and sheep
C. parasites and sheep D. sheep, birds and parasites
58. We learn from the text that corals depend on plants for _______.
A. comfort B. light C. food D. oxygen
59. What does the second paragraph mainly discuss?
A. Some animals and plants depend on each other for existence.
B. Some animals and plants develop their relationship easily.
C. Some plants depend on each other for food.
D. Some animals live better together.
The idea of fighting a noise by making more noise sounds strange, but that’s exactly what motor engineers are doing in Germany and some other countries.
Car makers’ research and development laboratories have already proved that mixing in more noise with the help of loudspeakers can reduce the unwanted noise.
Physicists have known about the technique for a long time. Sound is made up of pressure waves in the air. If two sound waves of the same frequency （频率） mix so that the highest point of one wave happens at the same time as the lowest point of the other wave, the result is no sound. Therefore, by producing a perfect copy of the noise and delaying it by half a wave cycle （周期）, we can kill the unwanted noise. Using this technique many carmakers are racing to develop noise-killing systems （系统） both inside and outside the cars.
Another good thing about the use of noise-killing systems is that it saves the need for a silencer； this not only reduces the weight of a car, but also makes the motor burn less fuel and work better.
Some engineers believe that the noise-killing system will be used in most cars within a few years. But the carmakers haven’t decided if they will put it into production because it would add several hundred dollars to the cost of their cars.
60. Which of the following gives a general idea of how the noise-killing system works?
A. By producing pressure waves going in the opposite direction.
B. By mixing high frequency sound waves with low frequency sound waves.
C. By mixing new sound waves with the noise and sending them out together.
D. By making copies of the unwanted sound waves and letting them out a little later.
61. Besides its main use the noise-killing system can _______.
A. make a car lighter
B. make a car quieter
C. reduce the cost of a silencer
D. improve the performance of a silencer
62. The noise-killing system is not yet popular mainly because _______.
A. it is still being tried out
B. drivers still have their doubts
C. it increases the cost of car production
D. carmakers are not sure if it is necessary
