        From the sharp quills of the porcupine to the poisonous skin of some kinds of frogs, animals rely on a variety of different means for protection. One of the most interesting methods for “disguise” and refers to an animal’s ability to mask itself from the eyes of predators by blending into the surrounding environment. Although the body shapes of a small number of insects do contribute to the camouflage effect, most animals depend on coloration of skin, fur, or feathers to help them “disappear” into the backdrop of their local environments. 
         Various types of birds use camouflage as their primary means of defense. The woodcock, for example, when on the ground, is quite vulnerable to attack. Although woodcocks have strong running legs, they require several seconds to take flight. However, the color of their feathers—brown, black, gray and russet—keeps them from being spotted on the forest floor. The Whip-poor-will uses camouflage in the same manner; it is practically invisible when perched motionless on a branch.

(A) a kind of animal
(B) a type of poison
(C) a method of protection

1. Read the following passage and design Three comprehension questions. (15 分) 
The answer to each question should be provided. 

        When the love child of the doughnut and the croissant was created by the Dominique Ansel Bakery in New York, fans queued for hours to sample the tasty hybrid snack. With only 300 cronuts made each day sold at $5 a pop, they are so coveted that they can go for up to $40 on the pastry black market. Even supermodel Heidi Klum had to wait weeks to try one. Though the cronut has gained worldwide attention on social media since its debut in May, few in the UK have had the chance to taste the unique pastry -- until now. "It just went viral because it's new," Dominique Ansel told the press. One British bakery described it as the most exciting pastry launch since the sausage roll. But although they have proved extremely popular with British customers, the intense enthusiasm for cronuts in New York is unlikely to be replicated in London. "Cronuts are called "Yum Yums" in this country and you can buy them in the supermarket Waitrose. We've had them for decades," wrote Richard Turner, the owner of London's Hawksmoor steakhouse, in an email to his business partner. Adalat Hussain, co-owner of the Wild and Wood cafe in Central London says British cronut-eaters are attempting to master the treat with a knife and fork. "I think using your hands is the best way," he says. Back across the pond, a young woman in the queue outside the Dominique Ansel Bakery declared the cronut a typically American invention. "A croissant is a great pastry in the morning; a doughnut is a great pastry in the morning. Really to combine the two is representative of the American way. It's really efficient and delicious and fattening and great." Dominique Ansel has copyrighted the term "cronut," prompting bakeries to come up with alternative names like "doissant", "croissant-doughnut" and "doughssant". The much-loved British bakery chain Gregg's launched the Greggsnut in September. "There's nothing unique about it," says Hussain. "It's just a 
simple thing that's really taken off." Now bakeries in the UK are desperate to create their own viral dessert -- anybody fancy a waggle (waffle meets bagel)? Or a crookie (croissant meets cookie)? How about a townie (tartlet meets brownie)? Whatever your preference, it looks like this particular trend will be with us for a while.

3. The following is the script of a recorded dialogue. Suppose you’re going to use this material to give your students English listening practice. How would you present it to your students? Please 
elaborate on the steps or the strategies you might use to help your students sharpen their listening skills. (25分) 

Man: So, what do you want to do tomorrow? 
Woman: Well, let's look at this city guide here. [Okay] Uh, here's something interesting             . [Oh!]Why don't we first visit the art museum in the morning? 
Man: Okay. I like that idea. And where do you want to eat lunch? 
Woman: How about going to an Indian restaurant? [Humm] The guide recommends one             downtown a few blocks from the museum. 
Man: Now that sounds great. After that, what do you think about visiting the zoo?
         [Oh . . umm . . well . . . ] Well, it says here that there are some very unique 
         animals not found anywhere else. 
Woman: Well, to tell you the truth, I'm not really interested in going there. [Really?]. 
              Yeah. Why don't we go shopping instead? 
              There are supposed to be some really nice places to pick up souvenirs. 
Man: Nah, I don't think that's a good idea. We only have few travelers checks left, and           I only have fifty dollars left in cash. 
Woman: No problem. We can use YOUR credit card to pay for MY new clothes. 
Man: Oh, no. I remember the last time you used MY credit card for YOUR purchases. 
Woman: Oh well. Let's take the subway down to the seashore and walk along 
              the beach. 
Man: Now that sounds like a wonderful plan.
