Homing pigeons are placed in a training program from about the time they are twenty-eight days of age. They are taught to enter the loft？阁楼？through a trap
and to exercise above and around the loft and gradually they are taken away for short distance in wicker baskets and released. They are then expected to find their way home in the shortest possible time.
In their training flights or in actual races, the birds are taken to prearranged distant points and released to find their way back to their own loft. Once the birds are liberated, their owners, who are standing by at the home lofts, anxiously watch the sky for the return of their entries. Since time is of the essence the speed with which the birds can be induced to enter the loft trap may make the difference between gaining a win or a second place.
The head of a homing pigeon is comparatively small, but its brain is one quarter larger than that of the ordinary pigeon. The homing pigeon is very intelligent and will persevere to the point of stubbornness; some have been known to fly a hundred miles off course to avoid a storm.
Some homing pigeon experts claim that this bird is gifted with a form of built-in radar that helps it find its own loft after hours of flight, for hidden under the headfeathers are two very sensitive ears, while the sharp prominent？突出的？
eyes can see great distances in daytime.
Why do homing pigeons fly home? They are not unique in this skill; it is found in most migratory birds, in bees, ants, toads and even turtles, which have been known to travel hundreds of miles to return to their homes. But in the animal world, the homing pigeon alone can be trusted with its freedom and trained to carry out the missions that people demand.

The sea has always interested man. From it he can get food, minerals, and treasures. For thousands of years, he could sail on it. But he could not go far beneath its surface.
Man wants to explore deep into the sea. However, he is not a fish. He must breathe air, so he can’t stay under the water’s surface for any length of time. To
explore deep water, man faces even more dangers and problems.
A diver who wants to stay under water for more than a few minutes must breathe air or a special mixture of gases. He can wear a diving suit and have air pumped to him from above. He can carry a tank of air on his back and breathe through a hose？软管？and a mouthpiece. Water weighs 800 times as much as air. Tons of water pushes against a diver deep in the sea. His body is under great pressure.
When a diver is under great pressure, his blood takes in some of the gases he breathes. As he rises to surface, the water pressure becomes less. If the diver rises too quickly, the gases in his blood form bubbles. The diver is then suffering from the bends？减压病？. The bends can cause a diver to double up in pain. They can even kill him.

A. special mixtures of gases in deep sea
B. the problems a diver faces in deep sea

Some years ago on a hot summer day in south Florida a little boy decided to go for a swim in the old swimming hole behind his house.
He flew into the water, not realizing that as he swam toward the middle of the lake, an alligator？美洲鳄？was swimming toward the shore. His brother in the
house was looking out the window and saw the two as they got closer and closer together. She ran toward the water, shouting to her son as loudly as she could.
Hearing her voice, the little boy became alarmed and made a U-turn to swim to his mother. It was too late. Just as he reached her, the alligator reached him.
From the dock, the mother grabbed her little boy by the arms just as the alligator snatched his legs. That began an incredible tug-of-war between the two. The alligator was much stronger than the mother, but the mother was much too passionate to let go. A farmer happened to drive by, heard her screams, raced from his truck, took aim and shot the alligator.
Remarkably, after weeks and weeks in the hospital, the little boy survived. His legs were extremely scarred by the vicious(剧烈的) attack of the animal and, on
his arms, were deep scratches where his mother’s fingernails dug in to his flesh
in her effort to hang on to the son she loved.
The newspaper reporter who interviewed the boy after the trauma？创伤？,
asked if he would show him his scars. The boy lifted his pant legs. And then, with obvious pride, he said to the reporter, ―But look at my arms. I have great
scars on my arms too. I have them because my mum wouldn’t let go.‖
Sometimes we foolishly wade into dangerous situation. The swimming hole in filled with peril(危险) and we forget than the enemy is waiting to attack. When the tug-of-war begins and if you have the scars of his love on your arms, be very, very grateful. He did not – and will not –let you go..
10. What was coming when the boy flew into the river?
A. Happiness B. A fish C. Danger D. Mother
11. The underlined word ―passionate‖ in paragraph 4 means ― ______________‖.
A. anxious B. eager C. curious D. full of emotion
12. Which of the following is TRUE according to the passage/
A. The scars on his arms are great. B. The boy is sad because of his scars.
C. His mother is stronger than the alligator.
D. The scars on the boy were caused by the alligator.
13. Which of the following can serve as the best title for the passage?
A. Save a Boy B. Scars of Love C. Fight with an Alligator. D. A Brave Boy.
