    Since December,there have been tens of thousands of the COVID-19 cases both in and out of China,caused by a previously unknown virus:novel coronavirus.

What are they?Viruses are considered to be non-living organisms(有机物).They can't reproduce(繁殖) on their own. Instead, they invaded the cells of living organisms to reproduce, spread and take over.But the basic question is,where did viruses first come from? Until now, no clear explanation for their origin exists.

Understanding the origins of viruses means fully understanding the history of their hosts not only humans,but also bacteria,plants and other animals,which is a complicated task. However,there are three main theories to explain the origin of viruses.First,viruses started as independent organisms,then became parasites(寄生者). Second,viruses evolved(进化) from pieces of DNA or RNA that"escaped"from larger organisms.The third one is that viruses co-evolved with their host cells,which means they existed alongside these cells.

For the time being,these are only theories.The technology and proofs we have today cannot be used to test these theories and discover the most plausible explanation.Continuing studies may provide us with clearer answers.Or future studies may find that the answer is even more mysterious than it now appears.

1.What can we learn about viruses from the article?

A.They mainly infect animals and plants.

B.They are really small living organisms.

C.They are more dangerous than bacteria.

D.They can't reproduce unless they find a host cell.

2.Which of the following might explain the origin of viruses?

A.They evolved along with their host cells.

B.They evolved from the DNA or RNA in animals.

C.They evolved from the fossils of large organisms.

D.They evolved from parasites to independent organisms.

3.The underlined word"plausible"in the last paragraph probably means______.

A.creative B.reasonable

C.common D.unbelievable

4.What can we conclude from the article?

A.The author is confident about future virus research.

B.Viruses will become more like bacteria as they evolve.

C.Viruses live longer in human host cells than in animals.

D.It may take a long time to understand the origin of viruses.

 

    One summer night, the whole family of Irene was asleep with the windows open. It was very quiet when there was a loud noise from the stable(马厩).Irene woke up from her sweet dream,and the noise continued.Then she heard a horse running fast towards the house.The next thing she saw was her horse,Thunder,standing outside of her window,neighing(嘶叫) and shaking his head.She knew something was wrong.Irene quickly got everyone out of the house before the earthquake hit.Thunder saved her life.

As amazing as this story is,it is not as uncommon as you may hear of the story of Doris and her cat Maggie.One night,Doris was in a deep sleep when she was woken by her cat Maggie.Maggie was meowing wildly outside Doris's bedroom and throwing herself against the closed bedroom door.When Doris opened her eyes,she saw her bedroom full of smoke.As she escaped her house,she saw a fire was burning in her kitchen.Even though Maggie could have escaped the house through a cat door,she wouldn't leave Doris.

There are also stories of wild animals coming to the rescue of humans.Once,Lyndon was surfing with his friend when he was attacked by a four-meter shark.During the attack,a group of dolphins came to his rescue by forming protective ring around Lyndon until be could get safely to shore.Without the help of the dolphins,there is little chance that Lyndon could have escaped.

No one is sure why animals have so often come to our rescue.However,it is clear that most of us haven't realized their kindness.It is important that we care for them as much as we can.

1.What was Irene doing before the earthquake hit?

A.She was sleeping soundly.

B.She was opening the windows.

C.She was visiting her neighbors.

D.She was getting her horse out of the stable.

2.Why did Maggie throw herself against the door?

A.She was afraid of smoke.

B.She wanted to get out of the room.

C.She was trying to wake up her owner.

D.She felt bored and was playing by herself.

3.What do we know about Maggie and Thunder?

A.They were shy and quiet.

B.They were brave and devoted.

C.They often made noise at night.

D.They saved their owners some times.

4.What can we know from the article?

A.It is clear why animals often save humans.

B.Humans haven't realized animals' s kindness

C.Humans have a good relationship with animals.

D.Animals can often come to the rescue of humans.
