Chinese Group Demands that Japanese Emperor Return Ancient Artefact
By Ankit Panda February 13, 2016
Adding to a growing list of diplomatic disputes between China and Japan, a Chinese group is demanding that Japan’s emperor return a 1.300-year-old artefact that was allegedly looted by Japanese Soldiers in the 1930s. According to a Xinhua report, the artefact in question in the Honglujing Stele, originally from “north eastern China.” The request was made in a letter addressed to Emperor Akihito of Japan by China Federation of Demanding Compensation from Japan (CFDC) via Japan’s embassy in China. The request has been prominently reported by both China’s domestic and international media outlets, suggesting that part of the intent is to shame Japan for its actions during the first half of the 20th century.
From Xinhua’s report, it is unclear the extent to which the Chinese government is involved in the request for the return on the artefact. The China Federation of Demanding Compensation from Japan (CFDC) is a civic group, independent of the government. According to Xinhua, “This is the first time a Chinese civic group has asked the Japanese imperial family for the return of a looted Chinese relic. “The group” seeks compensation for personal, material, and spiritual damage caused by Japanese militarism during the country’s aggression against China in the 20th century.”
27. What can be inferred from the text?
C. Japan was ruled by China in the 20th century
D. CFDC wanted the Japan emperor to admit their aggression to China in the 20th century
E. CFDC may have sent a letter directly to the Japan emperor without involving their government

Questions 30 – 31 are about the following explanation
All butterflies have “complete metamorphosis”. To grow into an adult they go some through its stages and each stage has a different goal.
A butterfly starts life as a very small, round, oval or cylindrical egg. The coolest thing about butterfly eggs, especially monarch butterfly eggs, is that if you look close enough you can actually see the tiny caterpillar growing inside of it. Butterfly eggs are usually laid on the leaves of plants, so if you are actively searching for these very tiny eggs, you will have to take some time and examine quite a few leaves in order to find some.
When the egg hatches, the caterpillar will start his work and eat the leaf they were born onto. This is really important because the mother butterfly needs to lay her eggs on certain type of leaf which the caterpillar will eat – each type of caterpillar likes only certain types of leaves. Since they are tiny and cannot travel to a new plant, the mother caterpillar needs to hatch its egg on the kind of leaf it wants to eat. Caterpillars need to eat and eat so they can grow quickly. When a caterpillar is born, they are extremely small. When they start eating, they instantly start growing and expanding. Their exoskeleton (skin) does not stretch or grow, so they grow by “molting” (shedding the outgrown skin) several times while it is growing.
The pupa stage is one of the coolest stages of a butterfly’s life. As soon as a caterpillar has reached its full length or weight, it changes itself into a pupa, also known as a chrysalis. This is the stage of developing.
Finally, when the caterpillar has fully grown adult if you are lucky, you will see an adult butterfly emerge. When the butterfly emerges from the chrysalis, both of the wings are soft and folded against its body. The butterfly will be able to fly after the blood circulation reaches its wings.
30. The text is about ….
A. the growth of a butterfly
B the characteristics of a butterfly C. the lifecycle of a butterfly
D. fully grown butterfly
E. the reproductive system of a butterfly
31. What will happen if the caterpillar has reached its full weight and length? It will ….
A. lay eggs
B. start eating
C. search for food
D. form a chrysalis
E. emerge a beautiful butterfly

An old man named Takahama lived in a little house behind the cemetery of the temple of Sozanji. He was extremely amiable and generally liked by his neighbors, though most of them considered him to be a little mad. His madness, it would appear, entirely rested upon the fact that he had never married or evinced desire for intimate companionship with women.
One summer day he became very ill, so ill, in fact, that he sent for his sister-in-law and her son. They both came and did all they could to bring comfort during his last hours. While they watched, Takahama fell asleep; but he had no sooner done so than a large white butterfly flew into the room and rested on the old man’s pillow. The young man tried to drive it away with a fan; but it came back three times, as if loath to leave the sufferer.
At last Takahama’s nephew chased it out into the garden, through the gate, and into the cemetery beyond, where it lingered over a woman’s tomb, and then mysteriously disappeared. On examining the tomb the young man found the name “Akiko” written upon it, together with a description narrating how Akiko died when she was eighteen. Though the tomb was covered with moss and must have been erected fifty years previously, the boy saw that it was surrounded with flowers, and that the little water tank had been recently filled.
When the young man returned to the house he found that Takahama had passed away, and he returned to his mother and told her what he had seen in the cemetery. “Akiko?” murmured his mother. “When your uncle was young he was betrothed to Akiko. When Akiko left this world, your uncle resolved never to marry, and to live ever near her grave. For all these years he has remained faithful to his vow, and kept in his heart all the sweet memories of his one and only love. Every day he went to her grave and prayed for her happiness, swept the tomb and set flowers there. When Takahama was dying, and he could no longer perform his loving task, Akiko came for him. That white butterfly was her sweet and loving soul.”

Pros and Cons of Savings Account
The traditional way to save money for families and individuals was to put your money into savings account, and then allow it to grow interest from there. Times have changed, and now some people think that the savings accounts that we once used and loved aren’t as valuable to us anymore.
Savings accounts are fundamental money management tools that can help you meet your long- and short-term financial needs. Knowing the pros and cons of savings accounts can help you figure out how to use them effectively.
The most obvious advantage of a saving account is that deposited funds accrue interest over time. Money under your mattress or in a home safe misses out on valuable earning potential. The rate you earn depends on where you deposit your money. Online banks tend to offer more competitive interest rates because their overhead expenses are lower than those of brick-and-mortar banks. Another important advantage is security. When you place your money in a bank, the government insures it up to the maximum amount allowed by law. So, compared to a number of other options, your money is safe in a savings account.
Compared with certificates of deposit (CDs) and other higher-interest bank products, savings accounts generally pay a lower rate of interest. In other words, the interest that you get on your money saved is very low. If you’re willing to keep your money deposited for a specific time period—anywhere from a few months to a few years, depending on what you choose—you generally can earn more interest with a CD than with a savings account. Some banks charge fees on their savings accounts. Be sure to compare the terms of different banks and look for those that offer savings accounts with no monthly maintenance fees.
Saving money for the future is an essential part of making responsible financial decisions. It’s worth your time to weigh the pros and cons before deciding on a savings account that works for you.
43. What is the greatest benefit of saving money in a bank according to the passage? A. Saving money in a bank is more secure.
B. Customer’s deposit will rise periodically.
C. There are some competitive interest rates.
D. Government guarantees customer’s deposit.
E. Customers are able to manage their own money.
44. How many kinds of way to save money according to the passage?
45. What is the main idea of paragraph 3?
A. The periodic rise of customer’s deposit.
B. The secure way to save money in a bank.
C. The beneficial arguments of saving money in a bank.
D. The drawbacks of saving account in state or private bank. E. The government’s official guarantee on customer’s deposit.
