Read the following paragraph carefully and select the best topic sentence from the four possible answers that follow the paragraph.
I love sunny days because they are ideal for outings. I remember the sunny weekend when two roommates and I had a marvelous time in the old Summer Palace. Under the blue sky, the trees are bathed in golden light. On rainy days, I enjoy the sound of raindrops beating on the windowpanes. I watch the rain washing the trees and grass clean, knowing they will glitter when it clears up and hoping a rainbow will follow. In winter, a heavy snowfall offers a different type of pleasure. Cold as it often is, I always go outdoors and leave my footprints in the thick snow while throwing snowballs and making snowmen with my fellow students.
A. A person should learn to be happy in all weathers.
B. One’s mood should not be affected by bad weather.
C. People usually prefer fine weather to severe weather.
D. I enjoy both sunny weather and rainy or snowy weather.
2) Topic sentence: ______________________________________
On a cloudy day the clouds hide the sun, but the sun is always there. The clouds of thoughts, worries and desires cover and hide our happiness. We have to get rid of them in order to experience it. Then the happiness that lies in the soul and is always there will give us warmth. Also, happiness does not depend on circumstances. Objects and events are not its causes. It is dependent only on one thing: the peace in our mind. This means that in order to experience happiness intentionally, we have to make our mind silent, calm and relaxed. This happiness I am talking about is constant and existing for ever. It is our nature; only our thoughts stand in our way of experiencing it. Drive away the thoughts and you are happy.
A. Happiness always gives us warmth.
B. Happiness can be found everywhere.
C. Happiness is not dependent on our mind.
D. Happiness is inside us and is not far away.

Qi Baishi (1863-1957) was one of China’s greatest painters. He was born in a farmer’s family in Xiangtan, Hunan province. He had only studied in a private school from his grandfather before he was twelve.
He worked as a carpenter when he was young. Between 1902 and 1909, he traveled across the country and painted many landscapes. His interest changed later to simple things from everyday life, such as vegetables, flowers, birds and insects. Cabbage is a well-known example of his work. The little insect in the picture fixed its eyes on the cabbage, which shows great interest in the cabbage. Qi Baishi’s paintings often leave the audience thinking.
