  I. Reading Comprehension(阅读理解):( 共18分)

  (A)

  These two letters appeared in a newspaper. Both writers have their own ideas on zoos.

  Zoos Do a Good Job

  It is good to keep animals in zoos. I know a lot of people think it is wrong to keep animals in zoos. However, I believe that zoos have many good points.

  Firstly, zoos are places for people to see many different kinds of animals from all over the world. Without zoos, most people would never see a real bear or tiger.

  Secondly, zoos look after the animals very well The animals are always given food and cleaned regularly (定期)。 In the wild, it is not always possible for an animal to find food, so sometimes it goes hungry/But animals kept in zoos never go hungry.

  Thirdly, zoos protect the animals they look after. They offer them safe places to live in. In the wild, some kinds of animals are in danger of becoming extinct(灭绝)。 But zoos give these animals a chance(机会)to live, Without zoos, there would be fewer kinds of animals in the world

  Maria Smith

  Zoos Are Unnatural

  In Maria’s letter, she says that zoos are good for animals. I am afraid that zoos are not good for animals, they are only good for people.

  It is unnatural(land unfair to keep wild animals in cages(笼子)。 Most animals are kept in cages that are too small for them. In the wild, these animals would travel freely. In zoos, they can‘t do this. This is why the bears and tigers always look so sad.

  Most cages are not very clean either. It is true that zoos give the animals food regularly, but this is not natural Wild animals are used to looking for their own food. We should treat(对待)animals in the same way that we treat other people—with respect

  Would anyone be happy if you don’t let him go outside his home? Would Maria like to have lots of people standing outside her flat looking at her? No, she wouldn‘t And animals don’t like it either.
