第1题,I work in London at a large hospital as a nursing officer. It＇s what a lot of people call a male nurse, which I think is the most ridiculous term I＇ve ever come across. It implies that a nurse ought to be female and that by being male, I＇m different. The other thing is that people always say, "I suppose you really wanted to be a doctor", just because I'm a man. They cannot imagine that I really wanted to be a nurse and that it isn＇t just that I failed to be a doctor. And what they don＇t realize is the work＇s completely different. You know, as a male nurse, you＇ve much more contact with the patients and you know, a long-term responsibility for their welfare. Huh, there＇s no way I＇d want to be a doctor. Well, except for the money, of course. What kind of work does the man do?
A、He's a doctor
B、He's a nurse
C、He's an officer
D、He's a worker.

Some people visiting India first told about the walking fish. What was the fish doing in that tree? How did it get there? They thought a bird might have put it there.
But the next day they were surprised again. They saw the fish come out of the water. It was hard to believe, but up the road it went. The fish used its fins and tail to push itself along. It stopped to eat worms. Afterwards it walked over to a tree. Up, up it went. When it got high in the tree, it rested. The people couldn＇t wait to tell others about this strange fish.
They told how it looked. The walking fish was not too big, they told the others. The one they saw was under a foot long. It was dark brown in color and had spots. They also noticed that it had big eyes. The people hearing this story thought it must be funny to see a fish walk along the bank while people were swimming in the water.
