36. 【解析】通过观察选项，本空要填一个名词，而该名词在本文中首次出现。根据完形填空的考查内容为上下文衔接，所以，本题答案必然在后文有所提及。通过“第一步通览全文”我们可以发现，在第二段第一句里有提到“by washing the sweet potatoes in a nearby river”，这样，我们可以得出本题答案为A。
37. 【解析】本题考查的是搭配，说甘薯的味道好，猴子们喜欢，但是他们发现dirt的味道不好。从but我们知道，本空所在的“they found the dirt 37 .”要表达与前半句的意思不同，而描写味道的形容词就只能是terrible了。因此，本题答案为B。
38.【解析】本题考查了搭配，“解决问题”的表达为“solve the problem”。所以本题答案为C。
39.【解析】本题的关键在于看出后半句they的指代对象。由于后半句“and they taught their mothers too”由此可知，这个“they”并非she的孩子或兄弟姐妹。所以本题答案为D。
40.【解析】本题的关键在下一句，“But many older monkey found it very hard to learn this”，这是一个转折，所以前面应该容易，所以本题答案为easily，答案为B。
