In Japan, Mr John spoke to many Japanese proudly, the Japanese listened to him patiently, but they shook their heads.

history of the Internet? Many people are surprised when they find that the Internet was set up（建立） in the 1960s. At that time, computers were large and expensive. Computer networks（网络） didn’t work well. If one computer in the network broke down, then the whole network stopped. So a new network system（系统） had to be set up. It should be good enough to be used by many different computers. If part of the network was not working, information could still be sent through another part. In this way the computer network system would keep on working all the time. At first the Internet was only used by the government（政府）, but in the early 1970s, universities, hospitals and banks were allowed to use it, too. However, computers were still very expensive and the Internet was difficult to use. By the start of 1990s, computers became cheaper and easier to use. Scientists had also developed software that made “surfing” the Internet easier. Today it is easy to get online and it is said that millions of people use the Internet every day. Sending E- mails is becoming more and more popular among young people. The Internet has now become one of the most important parts of people’s life. （ ）66. How long has the Internet been used?
A. For about 10 years C. For about 40 years （
B. For about 20 years D. For about 60 year.
）67. What would happen when one computer in the network broke down after the new network system was set up? A.The other computers would wait. B.The other computers would still work. C.Some of the other computers still worked. D.The other computers wouldn’t work.
）68. Which of the following used the Internet first? A. Hospitals B. Universities. C. Banks D. The government
）69. What is true about computers in the 1990s? A. They became cheaper and easier to use.
B. They became larger and larger. C. People couldn’t buy them anywhere. D. People could get information only from them. （ ）70. What can we infer (推断) from the last sentence? A. People will die without the Internet. B. All people should set up their own network. C. People live easily without the Internet. D. People will more and more depend on the Internet. C What a find day! The sun is shining and everything looks bright. Can you feel the heat when you stand in the sun? The sun gives the heat from very far away. It’s hard to believe that the sun is about one hundred and fifty million kilometers away. The sun looks small because it
is so far from us, but it’s really very huge(巨大的)。 The earth circles the sun. It takes one year for the earth to go around the sun, and at the same time the earth itself is spinning(自转) around once every twenty-four hours. The sun gives us light. It keeps us warm. It makes things grow. Plants, animals and people need the sun. We can’t live without the sun. 根据短文内容，判断下列句子正（T）误(F) （ （ （ （ （ ）71.On a fine day everything is bright because the sun is shining. ）72.The sun gives us heat and light. ）73.It’s about 150,000,000 kilometers from the earth to the sun. ）74.In fact, the sun isn’t very big because it’s too far away from us. ）75.It takes the earth 24 hours to go around the sun. 评卷人 七. 选词填空：用方框中的词的适当形式填空，每空一词。(其中 有两个词是多余的) (每小题 1 分，共 5 分) second argue decide believe start same understand
