(Part I)

According to the Chinese horoscope there are twelve signs which have got the names of animals. The twelve-year cycle begins with the year of the Rat. The people born in the Rat year are usually sociable, honest, merry and intelligent, but greedy. The next is the year of the Ox — strong, proud, patient, and silent, but also stubborn and slow. The people born in the year of the smiling Tiger are strong, brave, generous. They are leaders. If you are the Rabbit you are clever, hospitable, sociable, friendly, but careful. You are probably healthy, generous, independent and stubborn if you are the Dragon. The Snake-year people are usually calm, decisive, but lazy.

Model: A: Rats are not only sociable, but also honest.

B: Yes, but although Rats are honest, they can also be greedy.
