The Chinese New Year is now known as the Spring Festival because it starts from the beginning of spring. Though there are some sayings about its origin（起源）, all agree that the word Nian , which in modern Chinese means “ year ” , was originally the name of a beast（野兽）that started to eat people the night before the beginning of a new year.
One story goes that the beast Nian had a very big mouth that would eat a great many people at one time. People were very afraid. One day, an old man came to their help and said he would stop all this. To Nian he said, “I hear that you are very strong, but can you eat up all the beasts on earth instead of people who are too weak to be your enemy（敌人）? ” “ Yes , ” Nian agreed with him and went to kill many of the beasts on earth. People were very happy because those beasts also did bad things to people and killed their farm animals from time to time.
After that, the old man, who was a god（神）, rode on the beast Nian and left. Nian was gone, and other beasts also went into forests; people began to enjoy their happy life. Before the old man left, he had told people to put up red paper-cuts on their windows and doors at each year’s end to drive Nian away, because red is the colour the beast felt most afraid of.
From then on, every year at the beginning of spring, people “ Guo Nian ”. The word “ Guo Nian ” means “ Go through the Nian safely ”. Putting up red paper-cuts to drive Nian away and making dumplings for a better new year are still an every-year doing by the Chinese people. However（但是）, people today have long forgotten why they are doing all this, they just feel that the colour and the food make the New Year very enjoyable.
1. How did the old man stop Nian from eating people?
A. By putting red paper-cuts on windows.
B. By eating up beasts.
C. By talking to him.
D. By riding on him.
2. Why did people put up red paper-cuts instead of those of any other colours?
A. Because Nian liked the colour red.
B. Because the colour red could kill Nian .
C. Because the old man liked the colour red.
D. Because Nian was afraid of the colour red.
3. The best title of this passage is ________.
A. The Origin of the Chinese New Year
B. The Old Man and the Beast Nian
C. How to Go through the Nian Safely
D. What Nian Was Like
4. Which of the following is TRUE?

B. Nian is a tall beast that likes to eat farm animals
C. Nian is afraid of paper-cuts.
D. Nian doesn’t like to use his own mind.
When you are learning English, you find it not clever to put an English sentence, word for word, into your own language. Take the sentence “How do you do?” as an example. If you look up each word in the dictionary, one at a time, what is your translation（翻译）? It must be a wrong sentence in your own language.
Languages do not just have different sounds, they are different in many ways. It’s important to master（掌握）the rules（规则）for word order in the study of English, too. If the speakers put words in a wrong order, the listener can’t understand the speaker’s sentence easily. Sometimes when the order of words in an English sentence is changed, the meaning of the sentence changes . But sometimes the order is changed, the meaning of the sentence doesn’t change. Let’s see the difference between the two pairs of sentences.
“ She only likes apples.” “Only she likes apples.”
“I have seen the film already .” “ I have already seen the film.”
When you are learning English, you must do your best to get the spirit（精神实质）of the language and use it as the English speaker does.
