Upon inspection, to my disappointment, I realized it was the next door neighbor's 10yearold daughter's rabbit. For years I had watched her come home from school and head straight out to its cage, free it and play with it in the yard. I knew that day would be no different and fearing for our dog. I had to think fast. The rabbit was quite dirty, as if it had put up quite a struggle, so I washed it, combed it with the dog brush and blew it dry with the leaf blower. Upon finishing its grooming I jumped the fence and replaced it back in its cage hoping its death would be written off as “natural causes”． Then I went back to the hammock and JD. Within the hour the neighbor's Volvo pulled in as usual and out popped the little girl, and as usual she headed straight for the cage. Only this time she stopped about six feet away and screamed: “D－A－D－D－Y！ ！ ！”． Her father, panic stricken, stood looking at the cage. Being the good neighbor that I am, I rushed to the fence and asked if there was anything I could do. Her father less than calmly shouted, “What kind of sick individual would dig up a little girl's rabbit and put it back in its cage？” 31. The girl was shocked because________． A. the rabbit was killed by someone B．the rabbit was too clean C．the dead rabbit was cleaned and put back into the cage D．the rabbit was asleep in the cage 32．That day the girl ran to the cage________． A．because her rabbit was there
B．because she had a habit of going there to see her rabbit C．because she wanted to see her rabbit again D．because the rabbit was dead 33. We can infer that the rabbit________． A．was alive before the writer saw his dog dragging it B．was already dead before the writer saw his dog dragging it C．was in the cage playing with the dog D．was at the fence seeking out for food before it was killed by the dog 34. According to the story, the writer________． A．was helpful to his neighbor B．did a smart thing C．was honest D．made a mistake B Most rain forests lie close to the equator (赤道), where the climate is often mild and there are long hours of sunshine. The warmth of the land heats the air above, causing it to rise and tiny drops of water to fall as rain. The rainfall can reach at least 98 inches a year. This wet, warm world with plenty of sunlight is perfect for plants to grow, so the trees grow fast with green leaves all the year round. The trees themselves also have an effect on the climate. They gather water from the soil and pass it out into the air through their leaves. The wet air then forms clouds, which hang over the treetops like smoke. These clouds protect the forest from the daytime heat and nighttime cold of nearby deserts, keeping temperatures fit for plant growth. Rain forests slightly farther away from the equator remain just as warm, but they have a dry season of three months or more when little rain falls. Tree leaves fall during this dry season and new leaves grow when the wet season or monsoon (雨季) begins. Thus these areas are known as the “monsoon forest”． Another type of rain forest grows on tropical mountains. It is often called the “ cloud forest”because clouds often hang over the trees like fog. The rain forest is the ideal place for the growth of many different trees. Most of them depend on animals to eat their fruits and spread their seeds. When the fruits are eaten, the seeds inside them go undamaged through animals' stomachs and are passed out in their droppings. The seeds lying on the forest floor then grow into new trees. 35. The climate of the rain forests near the equator is________. A．mild, wet and windy B．hot, rainy and foggy C．hot, wet and cloudy D．warm, wet and sunny 36. We can learn from the passage that________. A．tree leaves are green all the time in the monsoon forest B．there is a dry season in the cloud forest on tropical mountains C．clouds help the plants in the rain forest near the deserts to grow D．the formation of climate in the rain forest has little to do with the trees 37. According to the passage，________play the most important role in spreading of seeds. A．animals B．droppings
C．fruits D．winds 38. This passage is most likely to be found in________. A．a travel guide B．a story book C．a technical report D．a geography book
