In Washington D. C. , 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue is a very special address. It is the address of the White House, the home of the president of the United States.
Originally the White House was gray and was called the presidential Palace. It was built from 1792 to 1800. At this time, the city of Washington itself was being built. It was to be the nation' s new capital city. George Washington, the first president, and Pierre Charles L' Enfant, a French engineer, chose the place for the new city. L' Enfant then planned the city. The president' s home was an important part of the plan.
A contest was held to pick a design for the president' s home. An architect named James Hobart won. He designed a large three-story house of gray stone.
President Washington never lived in the Presidential Palace. The first president to live there was John Adams, the second president of the United States, and his wife Mrs. Adams did not really like her new house. In her letters, she often complained about the cold. Fifty fireplaces were not enough to keep the house warm!
In 1812 the United States and Britain went to war. In 1814 the British invaded Washington. They burned many buildings, including the Presidential Palace.
After the war James Hoban, the original architect, partially rebuilt the president's home. To cover the marks of the fire, the building was painted white. Before long it became known as the White House.
The White House is one of the most popular tourist attractions in the United States. Every year more than 1.5 million visitors go through the five rooms that are open to the public.
The White House was built in Washington ______.
A because a French engineer was invited to design it
B because President George Washington liked to live in it
C because the British invaders lived in it in 1812 -1814
D because it was to be the nation' s capital city
The Presidential Palace was ______.
A painted gray and white
B made of gray stone
C made of white stone
D made very warm in winter
The president' s home and the city of Washington were ______.
A built by the American army
B built by the British troops
C planned by George Washington
D planned by the French
The original home of the president needed to be rebuilt ______.
A because John Adams' wife did not like it
B because it was cold in winter even with 50 fireplaces
C because it had burned down during the war
D because George Washington was not willing to live in it
Man finds living together with his own species (物种) difficult enough and living together with other species almost impossible. Our usual solution is to kill off anything that get in our way. Even on those rare occasions when we do enter into a relationship with another species, it is heavily biased(带有倾向) in our favor. The other species benefits only when it suits our own interests. Our attempts to communicate with another species are concerned mainly with giving orders in our own language and having them obeyed. Probably our best attempt has been the whistle language that is used in the shepherd-sheepdog relationship. This is a system that is natural to neither species, but one that both can understand. Its only fault lies in fact that the bias is still there-the dog cannot whistle for the man.
But now comes news of a piece of research that promises, for the first time, to open up two-way communication between man and another species.
At the University of Nevada in the western United States, animated (活跃的) conversations are being held with a young female chimpanzee (黑猩猩) called Washoe. Allen and Beatrice Gardener have succeeded in doing this because they have used an entirely new approach, an approach based on the natural abilities of the chimpanzee. Past attempts to communicate with chimpanzees have failed because the researchers tried to make their animals use a vocal language.
According to the writer, when man finds it impossible to live together with other species, he usually ______.
A tries to communicate with them
B tries to teach them a language
C sets up a relationship with them
D wipes them out
According to the writer, we communicate with animals in an attempt to ______.
A set up a relationship with them
B make them do what we want
C get along well with them
D teach them a language
The writer implies that the shepherd-sheepdog whistle language is still biased because ______.
A it can only be used to give orders
B it is not natural for both shepherd and sheepdog
C it is a one-way communication approach
D it can only be used between man and dog
Allen and Beatrice Gardener managed to communicate with the chimpanzee by ______.
A training the chimpanzee to learn human language in an entirely new method
B creating a language both man and the chimpanzee were able to use
C using animal' s vocal language which the chimpanzee was able to understand
D learning the chimpanzee's language with an entirely new approach
It can be inferred from the passage that ______.
A in the future the chimpanzee can learn language like human beings
B in the past researchers taught a chimpanzee words of our natural language
C man and animals can get along well if they can communicate with each other
D the chimpanzee can communicate well with our human beings

A contract is an agreement between two or more people in which one person agrees to do something by a specified date in return for something done by the other. Usually the contract is a written document signed and dated by both parties. It must state clearly the consideration, that is, what is to be given or done by one person in exchange for what is given or done by the other.

He or she may also be required to pay for damages suffered as a result of the failure to perform.
