China covers large areas and has a great population. Different living always been an interesting topic(话题) in the country. Recently, another difference between southern and northern people became a hot one: the way people shop at markets.
People southern China usually shop for just one or two meals. It is normal for them to buy half of a Chinese cabbage, two and 0. 25 kilograms of beef at a time. However, if a person this in the north, he may be laughed at. Buying enough food for weeks usual in northern China.
In southern China, you can buy a small amount(少量) of fruit for each time, such as an apple or a pear. Shop owners even help you peel(削皮) and cut it so that you can eat it.
Therefore, many northern people will get surprised when they shop at southern markets for the time. But shop owners in the north hardly offer such service to you. And the fruit isinbaskets and boxes.
The difference could be due to(由于) the different weather. Food can be kept for a long time in the north it is usually cold and dry there. Many northern people have the habit of food, especially for the long winter. But the hot and wet weather in the south makes southern people buy just enough food for one meal or one day, or else the food may go bad.
As autumn arrives in the United States and Canada, you could see the yearly migration of the monarch butterflies(帝王蝶).
No other butterfly in the world migrates like the monarch butterflies of North America. Every year, they fly to the south because they can't live for long periods in cold weather.
So each autumn around October, the butterflies travel up to 3, 000 kilometers south to spend winter in warmer locations. Some even fly to the mountains of Mexico. There are so many of them that they almost block out the sky. And you can hear their wings beating.
It usually takes the butterflies two months to reach Mexico. After five months of staying, they head back north in the spring.
But not one butterfly finishes the whole round-trip. They lay eggs along the way and die. Three generations(代)of butterflies will live and die during the spring journey alone. The fourth and final generation of the year is born in early autumn and will reach the north. But the butterflies hardly get to rest before starting the long journey south again to Mexico.
The most amazing thing about these butterflies is that they return to the very same trees in Mexico that their great-great-grandparents used to live on the winter before.
However, the population of this colorful butterfly has dropped in recent years. One of the main reasons, experts say, is that farmers have used herbicides(除草剂) on plants. The monarchs lay eggs along the route of their migration. Their larvae(幼虫) live and feed on the plants. But the herbicides can kill them.(1)、What does the underlined word "migration" in Paragraph 1 mean?A、蜕变 B、迁徙 C、再生(2)、Why do the monarch butterflies fly to the south?A、Because they don't like living in the north. B、Because winters in the south are more beautiful. C、Because they can't live for long periods in cold weather.(3)、How long do they usually stay in the south?A、For one month. B、For two months. C、For five months.(4)、What can we infer(推断) according to the passage?A、The butterflies that fly back to the north are not the same ones that flew to the south. B、When arriving in the south, the butterflies will all stay on one tree. C、The population of monarch butterflies is becoming greater in number.(5)、What is the last paragraph mainly about?A、Why the number of this butterfly is becoming smaller. B、Why farmers have used herbicides. C、Why the monarchs lay eggs along the route of their migration.

A mouse was surprised to discover that the farmer and his wife had a mousetrap(老鼠夹) in the house. It ran to warn everyone, "There is a mousetrap in the house!"
A hen raised his head and said, "Mr. Mouse, this mousetrap is only for you. 1 won't be worried about it. "The mouse turned to a pig, "I am sorry, Mr. Mouse, but the mousetrap has nothing to do with me, either!" the pig said. Then the mouse turned to a cow, "It sounds like you have a problem, not me. "the cow said. The mouse returned to the house with head down and it was very sad because no one would help.
That night the farmer's wife heard a loud sound and she rushed to see what was caught.
In the darkness she could not see that it was a snake. The snake bit the farmer's wife. The wife caught a bad fever and the farmer thought the best way to treat a fever was chicken soup.
