These plants are referred to as cover crops,whose roots hold the soil tightly together .The rain water cannot wash away the soil.When trees and tall bushes are planted at the edges of an open field,soil erosion by strong winds cannot take place. The trees and bushes,which act as a very big and firm wall, protect the open land from the winds.The way to stop soil erosion on slopes is to build terraces on the slope of hillside and mountainside .When the slope of a hillside is cut into “steps”,water carrying soil cannot run straight down the terraces , which are used to slow down the speed of the flowing water containing much soil in it . In this way most of the soil in the water is left behind on the terraces. Much soil in it is kept. 1.What takes place in soil erosion? A.Flood happens to the fertile land. B.A large quantity of the earth wears away gradually. C.Terraces are built on the slope of hillside or mountainside . D.Terraces are grown to protect the open land . 2. Besides afforestation,another method to fight against soil erosion is to . A.build terraces B.build walls .C.plant trees D.plant flowers 3. Trees and tall bushes are planted around an open field . A.because their roots hold soil tightly B.to stop soil from being blown away by winds C.because soil erosion causes terrible damage to crops D.To keep the ecological balance 4. Which of the following is the best title of the passage? A.What Cause Soil Afforestation B. The Importance of Afforestation C. Rain Erosion and Wind Erosion D.Erosion and the Ways to Fight Against Erosion B From the beginning of human history ,wild animals provided food,clothing and sometimes medicine for man.We may not depend as much on wild animals now. But we hear about them every day.Americans use the names of animals in many ways.Automobile manufacturers and gasoline companies especially like to use big cats to sell their products.They like lions, tigers and wildcats. When Americans say wildcat, they usually mean a lynx,an ocelot or a bobcat.All these cats attack quickly and fiercely . So wildcats represent something fast and fierce. An early American use of the word wildcat was quite different .It was used to describe
members of Congress who declared war on Britain in 1812 .A magazine of that year said the wildcat congressmen went home.It said they were unable to face the responsibility of having involved their country in an unnecessary war. Wildcat also has been used as a name for money in the 1800s.At that time,some states permitted banks to make their own money.One bank in the state of Michigan offered paper money with a picture of a wildcat on it .Some banks ,however, did not have enough gold to support all the paper money they offered . So the money had little or no value. It was called a wildcat bill or a wildcat bank note. The banks who offered this money were called wildcat banks . A newspaper of the time said those were the days of wildcat money . It said a man might be rich in the morning and poor by night. Wildcat then was also used for an oil well or gold mine that had almost no oil or gold in it .Dishonest developers would buy such property. Then they would sell it and leave town with the money . The buyers were left with worthless holes in the ground. Today,wildcat oil wells are in areas that are not known to have oil. 1.What is the main idea of the passage? A. Wildcats and their stories. B. Wildcats and their characters. C. varieties of animal species. D. Relationship between animals and humans. 2. From the passage we can know that . A.wildcats represent the state of Michigan B.the use of wildcats was not always the same C.wildcats are the best friend of human beings D.honest developers never buy wildcat oil wells 3. The underlined words “a lynx,an ocelot or a bobcat”in Paragraph 1 may refer to “ ”. A.gasoline companies B.automobile manufacturers C.names of wildcats D.brands of automobile 4. Which of the following would people like to have or trust according to the passage? A. Wildcat congressmen. B. Wildcat oil wells C. Wildcat banks D. Wildcat cars.
