         When you are ill, you’ll be unhappy because your body becomes hot, and there are pains all over. You don’t want to work: you stay in bed, feeling terrible.

    What makes you ill? It’s germs(细菌).Germs are everywhere. They are very small and you can’t see them with your eyes, but you can see them with a microscope. They are very small and there could be hundreds of them on or in a very small thing.

    Germs are always found in dirty water. When you look at dirty water under the microscope, you will see them in it. So your parents will not let you drink dirty water.

    Germs are found not only in dirty water, they are also found in air and dust(灰尘). If you cut your finger, and if some of the dust goes into the finger, it will become big and red, and you will have some pain in it. Sometimes germs will go into your body and you will feel pain everywhere.

       Research says that husbands do not do their fair share of work around the house. A study from an American university says that men seldom do the same share of housework. Researchers interviewed 182 working couples who became first time parents. Both husbands and wives worked almost the same number of hours in full-time jobs. However, men did five hours a week less housework than women after their baby was born.

       It is a different story for mothers. Becoming a parent added 21 hours a week to a mother’s work. Most of this was looking after her baby. New fathers did not do more work because they did not realize the mother was doing so much more. Another reason is that after a baby is born, fathers follow the “traditional” roles. That is, the mother looks after the baby and the father works outside. This happens even when the mother is working the same number of hours in her job. 

    (   ) 1. It is found that _________ do less housework.

           A. wives        B. husbands          C. parents         D. babies

    (  ) 2. The underlined sentence “It is a different story for mother” probably means __________.

    A.      mothers come from different families    B.mothers like reading different stories

    C.mothers work more hours than fathers     D.different mothers have different children

    (   ) 3. What is the “traditional” role of a father?

           A. Working outside          B. Looking after the baby

           C. Doing housework         D. Doing part-time jobs

    (   ) 4.Which part of a newspaper can this passage be taken from?

    A.      Sports             B. Medicine          C. News           D. Society

    来源: 2016--2017学年九年级期中试卷及答案.doc

    There are a number of phrases built on the word “put”, among which is the expression “putting one on”. When one finds it difficult to believe what you said, he may look at you more closely and ask, “Are you putting me on?” He doesn’t think you are serious. Perhaps, you are joking with him, laughing at him, trying to test his reaction. People who try to put you on are more often just joking, having some pleasant friendly fun. There are people who like to play jokes on friends, to put them on in strange ways, some funny, some not. This is especially true on April 1st, April Fools’ Day. Year after year, a number of people let themselves be fooled by the same joke. They just forget what happened to them the year before.

    One of these often repeated jokes is about a telephone call. The caller changes his voice and tells his friend a certain Mr. Fox calls him and asks him to make a quick reply to the given number, which is the telephone number of the National Zoo. Unthinkingly, the friend quickly makes his call and asks for Mr. Fox.

    The man on the other end says, “Who?”

    “Mr. Fox. I don’t know his full name. Please hurry.”

    The man at the other end answers, “We have no Mr. Fox here”. Then he realizes it is a joke and he has heard it before. And he begins to laugh and says, “Look, friend, this is the zoo. Somebody is pulling your leg, putting you on.”

    “Good God,” the friend says to himself, “How foolish I am!” But he thinks about it and can’t help having a good laugh over it.

    (    ) 1. According to this passage, “put one on” means ____________.

    A. to dress somebody                         

    B. to give someone a phone call

    C. to lift somebody onto a higher place

    D. to joke with someone to see what he will react to it

    (    ) 2. Why are people repeatedly (反复地) fooled on April Fools’ Day?

    A. Because they are also fond of fun. 

    B. Because they are forgetful.

    C. Because they don’t take the same joke seriously.

    D. Because their legs are pulled by someone.

    (    ) 3. The friend can’t speak to Mr. Fox because ____________.

    A. this Mr. Fox turned out to be an animal

    B. Mr. Fox happened to be out at that time

    C. he called the wrong number and the wrong place

    D. the one who answered the phone didn’t know Mr. Fox

    (    ) 4. Which of the following statements about jokes is NOT true according to the writer?

    A. All jokes are not funny.

    B. Not all people can remember what happened to them the year before..

    C. Some of the jokes are funny, some are not.

    D. All people like to play jokes on friends.

    (    ) 5. This text is mainly about ____________.

    A. the jokes people are likely to make on April Fools’ Day

    B. the meaning of “putting one on” and how to use it properly (恰当地)

    C. why people are fooled by each other

    D. April 1st, a day when people will make fun of each other

        根据短文内容,判断正误。正确的用“A”表示,错误的用“B”表示。

        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 extinction(灭绝). But zoos give these animals a chance to live in. 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.

        Iit is unnatural and unfair to keep wild animals in cages. 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 animals in the same way that we treat lther people with respect(尊敬).

        000 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.

                                                                      Philip Black

      1. Maria and Philip have quite different ideas on keeping animals in zoos.

      2. In Maria’s opinion, a real bear or tiger can only be seen in zoos.

      3. Maria thinks that animals live better in zoos than in the wild.

      4. According to Philip, if cages are big and clean enough, tigers and bears will look happy.

      5. Maria and Philip both agree that zoos are good for people.

    In some science fiction movies, evil robots refuse to die, no matter how hard people fight back.
       Now science fiction has become science fact. For the first time, scientists have made a robot that can take a beating (
    挨打) and keep on going. Scientists from Cornell University made the robot, which looks like a spider with four legs.
       Until now, even the most advanced (
    先进的) robot was almost certain to break down when it was damaged. That is because its computer inside simply doesn’t know how to make the machine work after its shape has changed.
       To deal with this problem, the scientists put eight motors (
    发动机) and two sensors (传感器) that read how the machine is working. They all give signals to the machine’s software. Using this information, the computer can then figure out the machine’s shape at any moment.
       The new technology is a big advance in robot-making, scientists say, and it’s f
    ar from scary. It may someday help scientists create better artificial (假的) arms and legs and give new freedom to people who lose them. It might also help scientists understand how people and animals figure out their own sense of place in space.
       “It has been difficult to design robots that can work well when the environment changes or when it’s damaged,” says Olaf Sporns of Indiana University in US. “With this work, we are nearer to solving this problem.”
    (    )1.Why do robots easily break down when they are damaged?
    A. They cannot repair themselves.

    B. The computer has changed a lot.
    C. They have no computers inside.

    D. The computer cannot work if the robot changes.

    (    )2.The new technology allows the robot to _________.
    A. do house work for humans 

    B. keep working after being damaged
    C. remember a lot of information

    D. tell people where it is

    (    )3.The underlined word “them” in Paragraph 5 refers to ________.
    A. sensors                   B. robots

    C. arms and legs             D. scientists

    (    )4.How do the sensors in the robot work?

    A. They can replace the computer when it’s broken.

    B. They can find out where the damage comes from.
    C. They help the computer learn the robot’s condition.

    D. They can send signals to the person who uses the robot.

    (    )5. The passage is probably from_____________.

    A. a newspaper           B. an advertisement

    C. a tour guide          D. an application

    B. No, the children may not mind how much the fee will be.

    C. Yes, most of them feel that the fee is not high.  D. The writer doesn't tell us.

    B. Disney Parks are getting more and more popular among children and adults.

    Since the 1970s, scientists have been searching for ways to connect the brain with computers. Braincomputer interface(BCI) technology could help people with disabilities send commands to machines.

      Recently, two scientists, Jose Millan and Michele Tavella from the Federal Polytehnic School in Lausanne, Switzerland, show a small robotic wheelchair directed by a person’s thoughts.

      In the laboratory, Tavella operated the wheelchair just by thinking about moving his left or right hand. He could even talk as he watched the vehicle and guided it with his thoughts.

     “Our brain has billions of body cells(细胞). These send signals through the spinal cord(脊髓) to the body part to give us the ability to move. But spinal cord injuries(脊柱受伤) or other conditions can prevent these weak electrical signals from reaching the body part.” Tavella says. “Our system allows disabled people to communicate with outer world and also to control machines.”

      The scientists designed a special cap for the user. This head cover picks up the signals from the scalp(头皮) and sends them to a computer. The computer finds meanings of the signals and commands the wheelchair with an engine. The wheelchair also has two cameras that tell objects in its path. They help the computer react to commands from the brain.

      Prof. Millan , the team leader, says scientists keep improving the computer software that finds meanings of brain signals and turns them into simple commands.” The practical possibilities that BCI technology offers to disabled people can be grouped in two kinds: communication, and controlling objects. One example is this wheelchair.”

      He says his team has set two goals. One is testing with real patients, so as to prove that this is a technology they can get advantages from. And the other is sure that they can use the technology for long.

    1. BCI is a technology that can________.

    A.      help to make computer systems more modern

    B.      connect the human brain with computers

    C.      help the disabled to be healthier

    D.     control a person’s thoughts

    2. Which of the following shows the path of the signals described in Paragraph 5?

    A.      scalp→computer→cap→wheelchair

    B.      computer→cap→scalp→wheelchair

    C.      scalp→cap→computer→wheelchair

    D.     cap→computer→scalp→wheelchair

    3. The team will test with real patients to_________.

    A.      make money from them

    B.      prove the technology useful to them

    C.      make them live longer

    D.     learn about their physical condition

    4. Which of the following would be the best title for the text?

    A.      Switzerland, the BCI research Center

    B.      New Findings About How the Human Brain Works

    C.      BCI Could Mean More Freedom for the Disabled

    D.     Robotic Vehicles Could Help to Cure Brain Sickness
