Domestic cats, no matter their breed. are all members of one species. Felis catus has had a very long relationship with humans. Ancient Egyptians may have first domesticated cats as early as 4,000 years ago. Plentiful rodents probably drew wild felines to human communities. The cats' skill in killing them may have first earned the affectionate attention of humans. Early Egyptians worshipped a cat goddess and even mummified their beloved pets for their journey to the next world-accompanied by mummified mice! Cultures around the world later adopted cats as their own companions.
Like their wild relatives, domestic cats are natural hunters able to stalk prey and pounce with sharp claws and teeth. They are particularly effective at night, when their light-reflecting eyes allow them to see better than much of their prey. Cats also enjoy acute hearing. All cats are nimble and agile. and their long tails aid their outstanding balance.
Cats communicate by marking trees_fence posts, or furniture with their claws or their waste. These scent posts are meant to inform others of a cat's home range. House cats employ a vocal repertoire that extends from a purr to a screech.
Domestic cats remain largely carnivorous, and have evolved a simple gut appropriate for raw meat. They also retain the rough tongue that can help them clean every last piece from an animal bone (and groom themselves).

Two-headed sharks may sound like a figment of the big screen, but they exist-and more are turning up worldwide, scientists say. A few years ago off Florida, fishermen hauled in a bull shark whose uterus contained a two-headed fetus. In 2008, another fisherman discovered a two-headed blue shark embryo in the Indian Ocean.
Now, Spanish researchers have identified an embryo of an Atlantic sawtail catshark. They opened the egg to study the specimen, and study leader Valentin Sans-Coma says it’s unknown whether the deformed animal would have survived.
Sans-Coma and colleagues say a genetic disorder seems to be the most plausible cause for the two-headed catshark, since the embryos were grown in a lab among nearly 800 specimens. To the best of their knowledge, the eggs were not exposed to any infections, chemicals, or radiation.
But wild sharks’ malformations could come from a variety of factors, including viral infections, metabolic disorders, pollution, or a dwindling gene pool due to overfishing, which leads to inbreeding, and thus genetic abnormalities. Ehemann, a master’s student at the National Polytechnic Institute in Mexico, believes that if the two-headed fetuses are more prevalent in nature, then overfishing is a strong culprit as it may cause the gene pool to shrink.
Galvan-Magana, who authored the 2011 study, doesn't think two-headed sharks are more common-but rather that there are more scientific journals around to publish accounts.
According to the text. the following may contribute to the existence of the two-headed sharks. EXCEPT …
(A) viral infections
(C) genetic disorder
(D) two-headed embryos

(B) Sans-Coma thinks that two-headed sharks may or may not have survived
(C) Ehemann thinks that overfishing causes two-headed sharks to exist, especially in nature
(D) Galvan-Magana thinks that the number of two-headed sharks are higher than the number of scientific journals
What is the main idea of the passage?
(A) scientists have been trying to explain the two-headed shark phenomenon
(B) scientists have found an answer to the existence of two-headed sharks
(C) two-headed sharks were found in the oceans
(D) scientists studied two-headed sharks both in the lab and in nature
The passage above is mo found in a … article.
The underlined word ‘plausible ’ in paragraph 3 means …
Steven Avery is an American man from Manitowoc Country, Wisconsin, who was convicted of rape and attempted murder in 1985, when he was at the age of 22, and served 18 years of a 32-year sentence before DNA testing exonerated him.
In July 1985. a woman named Penny Beerntsen was brutally attacked and sexually assaulted while jogging on a Lake Michigan beach. Avery was arrested after the victim picked him from a photo lineup, and later from a live lineup as well. Although Avery was 40 miles away in Green Bay at the time of the attack-an alibi supported by a time-stamped store receipt and sixteen eyewitnesses-he was charged and ultimately convicted of rape and attempted murder, then sentenced to 32 years in prison. Appeals in 1987 and 1996 were denied by higher courts.
In 1995, a Brown County police detective called the Manitowoc County Jail, saying that an inmate named Gregory Allen, serving a 60 year sentence on rape conviction, “had admited committing a sexual assault years ago in Manitowoc County and that someone else was in jail for it”. The jail officer informed the Manitowoc County detective bureau, but no action was taken.
Avery continued to maintain his innocence in the Beerntsen case. In 2002, after serving 17 years, the Wisconsin Innocence Project used DNA testing-not available at the time of Avery’s original trial-to exonerate him, and to demonstrate that Allen had in fact committed the crime. Allen, who bore a striking physical resemblance to Avery, had committed an assault at the same beach where Beerntsen was attacked in 1983, but he was never a suspect in the Beerntsen case, and was not included in the photo or live lineups presented to Beerntsen.
Avery was released on September after serving 18 years. By this time, his wife had divorced him and he was estranged from his family. His wrongful conviction case attracted widespread attention. A republican chairman of the Wisconsin Assembly Judiciary Committee recommended improvements to the state’s criminal justice system aimed at decreasing the likelihood of future wrongful convictions.
