Part III Reading Comprehension ( 30 marks) Directions: Read the following passage. The passage is followed by several questions or unfinished statements. For each of them there are four choices marked A, B, C and D. Choose the one that fits best according to the information given in the passage.
A Not a day goes by when we don’t use the World Wide Web. Today it has become almost as important to every family as food and water! This year, the World Wide Web has turned 25 years old. What many people don’t know is that the web was at first created to improve communication between thousands of scientists in Switzerland. In 1989, Tim Berners-Lee was a 34-year-old British physicist working as a software（软件）engineer at CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research in Switzerland. Since CERE was a huge organization with thousands of scientists, communication between them was becoming increasingly difficult. Berners-Lee wanted to develop a system to solve the problem. His paper suggested an information system, where a page on one computer could have a link to another page on another computer ( connected through the Internet) allowing scientists to read lots of information quickly. However, Berners-Lee’s boss said that it sounded exciting but impossible. Even though there were many difficulties and few supporters, Berners-Lee went on to develop the World Wide Web. He came up with ideas such as Hyper-text Transfer Protocol （超文本传输协议） to allow computers to talk to each other, Hyper-text Markup Language (HTML) to create the pages, a server to serve the pages, and a browser （浏览器）to see them. In December 1990, the World Wide Web was demonstrated（展示）and in 1991, the WWW project was made public, so that other programmers could develop their own browsers. Berners-Lee believed that it could be used for more than scientific purposes. He wanted the Internet to be easy for anyone to use-a free open software. His wishes soon came true. Although the World Wide Web has today turned into a completely different thing from what it meant at first, it has become necessary and important to our lives, powering our mobile technologies and the way we get information. 56. The World Wide Web was created to . A. help people get information easily and quickly B. support the development of mobile technologies C. make it easier for British scientists to communicate D. improve communication between scientists at CERN
57. As for Berners-Lee’s paper, his boss . A. felt puzzled about it B. was uncertain about it C. had no confidence in it D. showed no interest in it 58. According to the text, Berners-Lee . A. doesn’t give up easily when in trouble B. has worked at CERN for 25 years C. is a 55-year-old Swiss physicist D. knows little about the Internet 59. The underlined word “it” in Paragraph 5 refers to ______. A. a server B. a browser C. HTML D. the World Wide Web 60. What would be the best title for the text? A. The future of the web B. World Wide Web turns 25! C. Tips on improving your website D. Interview with Tim Berners-Lee B It’s not easy being a teenager —nor is it easy being the parent of a teenager. You can make your child feel angry, hurt, or misunderstood by what you say without realizing it yourself. It is important to give your child the space he needs to grow while gently letting him know that you’ll still be there for him when he needs you. Expect a lot from your child, just not everything. Except for health and safety problems, such as drug use or careless driving, consider everything else open to discussion. If your child is unwilling to discuss something, don’t insist he tell you what’s on his mind. The more you insist, the more likely that he’ll clam up. Instead, let him attempt to solve things by himself. At the same time, remind him that you’re always there for him, if he should seek advice or help. Show respect for your teenager’s privacy（隐私）. Never read his mail or listen to his personal conversations. Teach your teenager that the family phone is for the whole family. If your child talks on the family’s telephone for too long, tell him he can talk for 15 minutes, but then he must stay off the phone for at least an equal period of time. This not only frees up the line so that other family members can make and receive calls, but teaches your teenager moderation（节制）. Or if you are open to the idea, allow your teenager his own phone that he pays for with his own pocket money or a part-time job. 61. The main purpose of the text is to tell parents ________. A. how to get along with a teenager B. how to respect a teenager C. how to understand a teenager D. how to help a teenager grow up 62. What does the phrase “clam up” in Paragraph 2 probably mean? A. Become excited. B. Show respect. C. Refuse to talk. D. Seek help. 63. What should parents do in raising a teenager according to the text? A. Not allow him to learn driving or take drugs. B. Give him advice only when necessary. C. Let him have his own telephone. D. Not talk about personal things with him. 64. Why do the parents require their child talk for 15 minutes only on the family’s telephone? A. To teach the teenager moderation. B. To save money. C. To help the teenager spend more time on study. D. To keep quiet. 65. According to the passage, which of the following is TRUE? A. Being a teenager is easier than being the parent of a teenager.
B. It’s unnecessary to give your child the space he needs to grow. C. Not expect a lot from your child, but everything. D. If your child seeks advice or help, you should remind him that you’re always there for him. C A friend of mine named Paul received an expensive car from his brother as a Christmas present. On Christmas Eve when Paul came out of his office, a street urchin （顽童）was walking around the shining car. “Is this your car, Paul?” he asked. Paul answered, “Yes, my brother gave it to me for Christmas.” The boy was surprised. “You mean your brother gave it to you and it didn’t cost you anything? Boy, I wish?” He hesitated. Of course Paul knew what he was going to wish for. He was going to wish he had a brother like that. But what the boy said surprised Paul greatly. “I wish,” the boy went on, “that I could be a brother like that.” Paul looked at the boy in surprise, then he said again, “Would you like to take a ride in my car?” “Oh yes, I’d love that.” After a short ride, the boy turned and with his eyes shining, said, “Paul, would you mind driving in front of my house?” Paul smiled a little. He thought he knew what the boy wanted. He wanted to show his neighbours that he could ride home in a big car. But Paul was wrong again. “Will you stop where those two steps are?” the boy asked. He ran up to the steps. Then in a short while Paul heard him coming back, but he was not coming fast. He was carrying his little disabled brother. He sat him down on the step and pointed to the car. “ There it is, Buddy, just like I told you upstairs. His brother gave it to him for Christmas and it didn’t cost him a cent. And some day I’m going to give you one just like it ?then you can see for yourself all the nice things in the Christmas window that I’ve been trying to tell you about.” Paul got out and lifted the boy to the front seat of his car.
