Passage 1
Here’s a story about Ming’s life on the waters. Ming has lived all his life on a wide r 1 in china. His home is a large house-boat with a roof, one of hundreds that move up and down. In about six years he has not once been on l 2 but he is never lonely. He is a strong swimmer. In fact, he could swim before he could walk. When he wants to play with his f 3 he just swims across to their boats or asks them to v 4 him.
Ming’s father is a fisherman, but he never u 5 a line or a net(网). Great black birds called cormorants do the fishing for him. Rings(圈)have been put around the birds’ n 6 so that they cannot eat the fish they catch. They have been t 7 to bring the fish to people.

Passage 2
Can animals be made to work for people? Some scientists think that one day animals may be trained(训练)to do a number of simple jobs i 1 of people.

If you watch closely, you may find that the trainer(驯兽员)always g 3 the animal some sugar o 4 a piece of fruit as a reward(报酬). The scientists say that many d 5 animals may be trained to do a lot of simple things if they know they will get a reward f 6 doing that.
Of course, as we know, dogs can be trained to look after a house, and soldiers in both old and modern t 7 have u 8 geese to give warning(警报)by m 9 a lot of noise when an enemy comes near. And also it may be possible to train animals to work in families or f 10 .
