Andy lived high in the Rocky Mountains.He hunted(打猎) wild animals there.He also took other men hunting.That was his work.
One day a letter brought Andy a new job.This job changed both his feeling about animals and his way of hunting.The letter said: "I want to write a story about bighorn sheep.I need pictures to go with my story.Will you get pictures of the sheep for me?"
Andy' s two sons wanted their father to take the job."We will help you !" they said.Bighorn sheep are very wild.Andy knew it would be hard to get pictures."But why not try?" they said.
For days, Andy and his sons tried to get pictures.They did not want the sheep to hear them or see them, so they walked softly.They hid behind rocks, but the sheep always ran away.
Then one day, Andy and his sons walked around a big rock.They met some sheep face to face.But the sheep didn' t run ! "Now I know why the sheep run away," Andy said."They run because we come up behind them.From now on,—— we will stay where they can see us."
The next day, Andy saw some sheep fight out in the open.He and his sons walked toward them.The men did not try to hide, but they did walk slowly.They knew that any fast move will frighten them away.
"Don' t look fight at the sheep," Andy said."Wild animals do not like to be looked at.They will run away." The men looked off to this side and to that side, but they walked closer and closer.And soon they were close enough to get good clear pictures.
They made good friends with the wild sheep and sent many fine pictures to the writer for his story.Since then, they have never hunted the bighorn sheep again.

21.D【精析l细节题。题干意为“安迪得到了一份什么新工作?”文章第二段最后“The letter said：‘l want to write a story about bighorn sheep.1 need pictures to go with my story.Will you get pictures of the sheep for me?”提到，安迪收到了一封信，信中作家请求他帮忙拍摄大角羊的照片。文章的最后一段也提到他们帮作家拍摄了很多照片。故D正确。
22.B【精析】细节题。题干意为“接近大角羊最好的方法是什么?”根据第七段第一句安迪的口述“Don’t look fight at the sheep，”可知。不能直视羊群，所以排除A。第六段最后一句“They knew that any fast move will frighten them away.”说明走路速度过快也会吓跑羊群，更不用说跑了，所以排除c。第四段最后一句“They hid behind rocks，but the sheep always fan away.”说明跟在羊群后面，羊群也会逃跑，故排除D。结合第五段及第六段内
Everywhere in the world, plants and animals live together.Some animals eat plants they live with, Some plants stay alive because many plant-eating animals have natural enemies that eat them.
Rich soil for the roots of plants is produced by worms and other very small animals that live underground.Green plants feed animals and people.
It takes all the plants and animals living together to keep the earth a good place to live in.
Plants and animals trade with each other.They trade for things they both need to stay alive.
Animals breathe and the air gets changed inside their bodies.When they breathe the air out again there' s something called carbon((碳) in it.Animals can' t use this air again.But plants need carbon.The plants trade fresh air for the carbon they need.
Plants make food from carbon and water.They use sunlight for this work, just as a machine uses gas or electricity to keep running.The plants store the food they make inside themselves.
But what do the plants get in return? Many things.Plants make food from the carbon and other things that come from animals' bodies.Insects like bees carry pollen(花粉) from one flower to another and the pollen forms seeds.Birds and other animals eat the fruit in which seeds grow and often drop the seeds where they can grow up into new plants.So animals help the growth of new prants.
