Once, there was a tortoise that was incredibly talkative. It could talk incessantly for
hours without getting any fatigue. However, its fellow forest companions were not so
fortunate. They grew increasingly irritate with the tortoise since its speeches were always
boring and long-winded.
One summer, the forest was affected by a terrible drought. The only lake in the ntire
forest which provided water began to dry up and the animals grew alarmed. They sent
some birds out to look for alternative source, and eventually decided to move to a nearby
forest which had a big water-filled lake. However, the poor tortoise was in no mood to
rejoice. It was too slow-moving to reach the forest in time and asked around for help. After
difficulty, it managed to find two kindly crows which were willing to help.
They came up with a brilliant plant required the tortoise to claps tightly to a branch
with its mouth. The branch would then be carried by both birds with their legs to the new
lake. The plant was soon underway and the tortoise was ferried through the air in grand
style. When they were flying, the tortoise forgot the crow’s earlier warnings and began to
shout, “Look! Look! What a beautiful lake!” Unfortunately, those were the last words it
ever uttered.

Scientists and doctors say that about 34 million Americans are too fat. Why is this? One
cause is the kind of food Americans eat. Many Americans like ‘fast food’. These foods
(such as hamburgers and ice cream) often have fattening things in them. Another cause is
what the Americans eat. They often eat little snacks between regular meals. These extra
foods add extra fat on their body. A third cause is not enough exercise. Americans like
driving everywhere, instead of walking. They often have machines to do a lot of the work.
Some Americans are also too heavy because of health problems. But for most of those 34
million Americans, the problem is the American lifestyle.

A. what Americans eat C. the American lifestyle

Good ideas often start with really silly questions. Bill Bowerman was making breakfast one
day. As he stood there making waffle for his son, he wondered what would happen if he

shoe companies he was literally laughed at. In fact, every single company turned him
down. Though rather disappointed, Bowerman was determined and went on to form his
own company, making NIKE athletic shoes.
