1990 was an important year in world events. In February, Nelson Mandela was set free after 27 years in prison. In October, East and West Germany became one country again. Then at the end of 1990, the World Wide Web was born. For this final event we have one man to thank. Tim Berners-Lee, the father of the Web.
Berners-Lee was born on June 8, 1955 in London, England. His parents, both computer designers, encouraged him to think and work creatively as he grew up. He was an excellent student and naturally took an interest in computers and science.
After graduating from Oxford University, Tim went to work at a science research centre in Switzerland. There he developed some of the different systems（系统）that would later become the Web. The first was HTML, the computer language used to make web pages. The second was an address system that let computers anywhere find each other and send and receive information. In 1990 he put them together to make the first Internet browser（浏览器）.
Tim knew that the more people used the Web, the more useful it would be. He wasn’t interested in money but knowledge, so he gave out his invention for free to anyone who was interested. Many were interested an the growth of the Internet began.
Today Tim works as a professor at the MIT in America, studying new ways to use the Web. He has received many awards from governments and organizations for his efforts. He is still not very interested in money. That is why he is so liked by his students and workmates. It may also be one of the reasons that few people outside the world of technology know his name.
24. The following events all took place in 1990 except that ______.
A. Nelson Mandela got free
B. the World Wide Web was born
C. Eat and West Germany reunited
D. Berners-Lee started school
25. We can learn from the text that Berners-Lee ______.

B. didn’t do well at school
C. cares little about money and knowledge
D. is well-known all over the world
26. Where does Berners-Lee live today?

C. America. D. Germany.
27. What does the text mainly talk about?
A. The events that took place in 1990.
B. The history of the Internet.
C. The invention of the Internet.
D. The father of the World Wide Web
You need some bread and milk. But half an hour later, you leave the supermarket with a trolley（推车）full of food. What games do supermarkets play to make us spend so much money?
The tricks usually start before you walk in. Outside the supermarket entrance, anybody who walks past can smell warm, fresh bread. That makes us hungry and ready to buy lots of food, not just bread.
Now you’re inside and, of course, a small basket would be fine, but all they have are trolleys. And of course the problem with a trolley is that it looks sad and lonely with just one or two goods inside. So we may fill it with something. In fact, supermarket trolleys are actually getting bigger so that we buy more.
Of course, many people shop in supermarkets because they think everything is cheaper than in other shops. So supermarkets offer very cheap prices on some things but then have higher prices for other goods. One new trick is to put red stickers（标签）on them. Customers usually connect red stickers with lower prices so the red stickers is
easy to be seen, even when there is no reduction! Interestingly, this trick appears to work more with men than with women.
There is a story behind the position of everything in the supermarket. The most expensive goods are usually at eye-level so you see these immediately. The exception is anything that children might like. These goods are on lower shelves so that kids see them.
Apart from what you see and smell in a supermarket, what about what you listen to? In most supermarkets they have soft, slow music. It’s so relaxing that you slow down and spend more time (and money) in the store. Experts suggest it’s better to shop when it’s quieter, on a Monday or a Tuesday for example. And be careful with queues at the checkouts（收银台）. These are sometimes on purpose, to make you buy something from the checkout shelves while you wait.
So, next time you go into your local supermarket, remember these tricks and see if you can come with just the things you went for.
28. There are no small baskets but trolleys in the supermarket because ______.
A. small baskets are not strong enough
B. people don’t like using baskets
C. it’s easy to go shopping with trolleys
D. trolleys are actually making people buy more goods

A. small jokes B. clever methods
C. suggestions D. advertisements
30. According to the text, supermarkets put red stickers on goods to ______.
A. make them look more beautiful
B. show these goods are worth buying
C. let people know they are for men
D. draw the customers’ attention
31. From the last two paragraphs we can learn that ______.
A. It is better to be careful with the tricks and shop reasonably
B. there is no good listening to the soft music in supermarkets
C. supermarkets usually close earlier on Monday and Tuesday
D. we should be more careful when waiting at the checkout
It’s Friday morning in the year 2050, and you’re running late. You got carried away watching the music video that is playing in the corner of your bathroom mirror while you were brushing your teeth. How will you get to your office at Mega Giga Industries on time?
A quick check of your Internet-connected refrigerator tells you your train is a bit behind schedule, too. So you decide to drive your environmentally hydrogen fuel（环保氢燃料）car instead-or rather, let your car drive you. It’s programmed to know the way and it will get you there without getting lost.
Settling into your office chair, which changes color to match what you’re wearing, you pick up yesterday morning’s newspaper. Printed on reusable electronic paper, it rewrites itself. Now it’s time for your big meeting. Uh-oh! You’ve left your handwritten notes at home. No problem. The smartpen you used has stored an electronic copy of what you wrote.
Your wristwatch videophone（可视电话）suddenly rings. Your best friend’s face pops up on the screen asking what you’re doing this weekend. Will you play virtual soccer with the U.S. Olympic team? No, no. Your friend says, so you have to take the new elevator (made of microscopic fibers many times stronger than steel) 60000 miles into space.
Could this scene really take place in just a couple of decades? The researchers who are now developing all these things think so. These high-tech products（高科技产品）may be as common in 20 years as cell phones today.

Some time ago, a friend of mine who worked in a part of the city I didn’t know very well, invited me to call on him. It took me hours 61 (get) there and I took great trouble finding a proper place to park my car. As I was already half an hour late, I parked my car quickly on a non-parking place.

How are you? I’m sorry for not replying to your letter in time. I was preparing for the final exam which was very important to me.
During this winter vacation, I plan to do many things, one of which is making a trip to some places of interest together with my good friends. And I want to do some meaningful volunteer work. Also, I’d like to do a part-time job, which helps me know more about society and helps me earn some money for my schooling. That can be called killing the birds with one stone.
What are you going to do in this winter vacation? Hope you could come to China in your spare time and have a wonderful time with us.
