The grizzly is the star of our little town in the mountains. Many people visit here for this kind of strong large brown bear. When a grizzly grows up, it may become as heavy as 680 kg. But never think this gigantic animal moves slowly. In fact, the grizzly can run as fast as 55 km an hour.

Though grizzlies look quite big and dangerous, they eat not only meat, but also flowers and grasses. Fish is their favorite food. On summer nights, they enjoy catching fish in the rivers. That is why people usually come watching grizzlies in this season.

Now the number of grizzlies is getting smaller because they have been killed by people who sell grizzly body parts as medicine. Many people of our town are worried about this and have asked for help to save our big friends.

Dear Lily Brown,

During my first two years in junior high school, I never met any girls I liked. 34 --- a girl came into my life. Diana is a new student in my class. She is not only beautiful but also nice to people. Almost all the boys in my class like her, and 35. She often talks to us happily, and I am worried that she may like other boys.

Last Thursday, I decided to ask her to be my girlfriend. But before I spoke, my nose started bleeding! It was so embarrassing. I wished 36 .

Dear Lily, do you think she still wants to talk to me after that? What should I do?

Dear Aunt Tara,

I have a problem with my homework. We have to do It in a group. It has to be finished this Friday, but Gary, the boy in our group, has done nothing helpful. He just keeps rocking the boat.

Every time we talk about the work with him, he always says, “Don’t worry. I’ll do it later.But he seldom does his job. And when he does, he does it the wrong way. Someone has to do it for him again. What’s worse is when Ms. Lin asks about our group, Gary always tells her that we others don’t work hard enough. I’m really mad at Gary about this. We’re in the same group. Shouldn’t we help each other to do a better job?

Kate

Dear Kate:

It is important for students to learn how to work together in a group. Maybe you should talk to Gary about the problem and tell him you all need his help. If he still doesn’t change, go talk to your teacher. I believe she can make Gary do his job.

Aunt Tara

What does this mean?

What do we know from Aunt Tara’s letter?

Gary should be put in another group.
Kate should let Gary know how she feels.
