False Fear of Big Fish
Many people believe sharks(鲨鱼)are dangerous and will always try to hurt or even kill humans. (46) A shark exhibition at the National Aquarium(水族馆)in Baltimore，US，proves this. Visitors can touch young sharks.see their eggs develop and watch a dozen different species swim smoothly around a huge tank.
Most people fail to realize that shark attacks don’t happen very often.Humans are mote likely to be killed by lightning than by a shark. (47)There，kids can learn，from an early age，not to fear sharks.
‘'People fear what they don’t know，”said Nancy Hotchkiss。an organizer of the exhibition.“Sharks have been around for 400 million years and play 1til important role in the ocean’s food chain.We want people to discover that sharks are amazing animals that need our respect and protection。”
(48)A study ,published in January in the US magazine，Science，found that almost all recorded shark species have fallen by half in the past eight to 15 years.Thousands of sharks are hunted in Asia for special foods，such as shark fin(鱼翅)soup.And many others get caught in nets，while fishermen are hunting other fish. (49) “Some fishing methods are actually cleaning out the ocean for sharks，”said Dave Schofield， the manager of the aquarium’s ocean health program me. (50)

剖析：该空的关键是后面的there, 应该代指前面的一个地点，所以在选项中只要E具有表示地点的词 And to make this。point clear,，。the museum has set up a special touching pool for children：为了分明地阐明这一点，博物馆专门为孩子们搭建了一个能够中止触摸(鲨鱼)的水池。第二段主要讲鲨鱼并不经常攻击人类，为了证明这一点，博物馆……选项E放入空格处很衔接，与原文意思相符，故E为正确答案。

剖析：此段的第一句被删除了，要求考生补全。空格后面举例阐明过去8至15年内鲨鱼种群消亡了几，选项B(A shocking 100million sharks are killed every year around the world by humans.)显然是本段的主题句，概括本段的意思，故B为正确答案。
And many others get caught in nets(用网捕鱼)，while(而) fishermen are hunting other fish. (49)
“Some fishing methods(办法) are actually cleaning out(清算) the ocean for sharks，”said Dave Schofield， the manager of the aquarium’s ocean health program . (50)
