Nature is full of examples of cycles. The seasons come and go in a cycle of spring, summer,
autumn, and winter. The days move in cycles of day and night. And all living things live, grow, and
die in cycles. For example, a sapling grows tall and strong. Then, one spring, the tree blossoms.
These flowers later turn into fruit or other types of seeds. When these seeds fall, they land on the
ground. The seeds can then grow. If the seeds get enough sunlight and rain, they will become young
trees. As the trees blossom, the cycle repeats itself.
Rain also occurs in cycles. Water evaporates from the oceans and rises into the sky. This
means that the ocean water is warmed by the sun and some of it rises into the air. When enough
water has gathered together, big rain clouds form. The clouds will release or drop the water. The
rain falls on land and ocean alike. When the rain falls on land, the ground soaks up some of it. If a
lot of rain falls, the runoff flows into streams, rivers, and lakes. This water, in turn, flows into the
oceans. When some of this water evaporates into the air, the cycle repeats itself. 【題組】41. This passage is mainly about .

46.A strong, healthy body can do an amazing job of resisting disease. There are many things you
can do to keep your body healthy. Eating proper foods is one of the effective ways. A balanced diet
gives the body the nutrients it needs to function properly.
Getting plenty of sleep is another good way. A tired, run-down body does not function
efficiently and is like a car that needs a tune-up. Sleep refreshes the body and restores the energy
necessary to fight disease.
Exercise is also important in reducing stress and keeping the body healthy. Regular, moderate
exercise, such as running, dancing, swimming, biking or playing a sport, will relieve muscle tension,
keep the muscles firm, and make the heart and blood vessels healthy. Exercise, like sleep, makes the
body function more efficiently. People who exercise regularly can even strengthen their hearts.
