Deep inside a mountain near Sweet water in East Tennessee is a bady of water known as the Lost Sea. It is listed by the Guinness Book of World Records as the worlds largest underground lake. The Lost Sea is part of an extensive and historic cave system called Craig head Caverns.
The caverns have been known and used since the days of the Cherokee Indian nation. The cave expands into a series of huge rooms from a small opening on the side of the mountain. Approximately one mile from the entrance, in a room called-The Council Room", many Indian artifacts have been found. Some of the items discovered include pottery, arrowheads, weapons, and jewelry.
For many years there were persistent rumors of a large underground lake somewhere in a cave, but it was not discovered until 1905. In that year, a thirteen-year-old boy named Ben Sands crawled through a small opening three hundred feet underground. :He found himself in a large cave half filled with water.
Today tourists visit the Lost Sea and ride far out onto it in glass-bottomed boats powered by electric motors. More than thirteen acres of water have been mapped out so far and still no end to the lake has been found. Even though teams of divers have tried to explore the Lost Sea, the full extent of it is still unknown.
The Lost Sea is unique because it is __________.
Apart of a historical cave system
Bthe biggest underground lake in the world
Clisted in the Guinness Book of World Records
Dthe largest body of water in Tennessee
People are used to speaking their native language, so immigrants are having many problems be-tween the first generation and the second generation because they dont have the same native language. Also, the second generation is losing their identity. Especially in America, there are many immigrants that came from different countries to succeed in the States. Because they suffer in lots of areas such as getting a job and trying to speak English, they want their children to speak English, not only at school, but also at home in order to be more successful. Because of this situation, their children are losing their ethnic identity.
For example, my aunt,who has been living in Chicago for twenty-five years, has three children and they were all born in the States. The eighteen-year old daughter speaks English as a native language and she speaks Korean very well too. She has no problem stalking with her parents, but she still does nt understand Korean jokes, and there are sometimes misunderstandings. The second daughter is fourteen years old, and she does nt want to speak Korean. My aunt often gets upset with herbe-cause she is very Americanized and they cannot understand each other. Even when my aunt punishes her,this daughter does not understand what my aunt is talking about. The third child is a twelve-year-old son. He speaks English to his parents and my aunt speaks Korean to him as she does to the second daughter. He also has a problem communicating with his parents. My aunt is trying to teach him to speak both languages, but it is very hard for him because he speaks English all day and does not understand why he should learn to speak Korean.
We must realize that language is important and valuable for many reasons. Immigrants should make an effort to make their children understand their heritage by teaching them the parents language. This is very important, not only for the harmony of the family, but also in helping the second generation establish their identity.

[单选题]We first think of the traditional or nuclear family.This is a two-generation family, the father and the mother and their own children.Most couples wanted to have four children, two boys, two girls.
Some nuclear families, however, may add one or more grandparents to come to live with them, that is three generations.This kind of family with grandparents, parents, and grandchildren is called an extended family.This family type was not very common during the later half of the twentieth century, but it's becoming more common now as an elderly grandparent moves in to live with a son or daughter.This is more possible now that American homes have become larger.What is interesting, however, is that after the grandchildren move out of the home and start their own families, this extended family shrinks back to a nuclear family, with just two generations again living together, a grandparent and parents, with the grandchildren coming only for occasional visits.
Now, the fatherless or motherless family is one kind of what we call a single-parent family.In the fatherless family it's just the mother and her children.As I said, this can be the result of the husband's death, of an unmarried mother, of a separation or divorce.There are also a growing number of motherless families--where the father raises the children, for any of the same reasons.A motherless family may also be fatherless, but still a family with one adult.This is becoming more common in the big cities where a grandmother will raise her daughter's children while the daughter goes elsewhere to work.
One other new kind of family is becoming increasingly more common.A single parent with one or more children will marry again.Perhaps the other parent is also a single parent.Together they will start what is called a blended family, which blends together or combines the children from two other families.
Who usually looks after the children in a both motherless and fatherless family in America?
AThe children's aunt
BThe children's nursery or school
CThe children's grandmother
DThe children's neighbour
