As for daily life, I think that we will be able to 26 most of our shopping by 27 and this will be taken to our homes, so 28 there won't be any 29 to go out to the 30 .

We will also be 33 'holovision'which will give you three dimensional(三维的)life-size pictures 34 your screen—this will replace television. 35 improved technology, there will be no more road accidents. Cars will be guided by computers so people will not have to do any more driving.

About once a year our bodies will go into a health centre for a service in much the same way as a car 39 be repaired. So, for example, our veins(静脉)will be cleaned out, our blood made pure, our muscles built up and so on. Any part that is 40 could be replaced by a new plastic part. We will all be much 41 by then anyway, because there will be more 42 for us to use for exercise. Also a safe medicine will have been discovered which will allow people to lose or put on 43 as they need.

Do you know that you can use your watch as a compass(指南针) on a sunny day?Take a watch and point the hour-hand in the direction(方向) of the sun. Imagine a line which runs from the center of the watch through a point half-way between the hour-hand and number one. This line will surely point south.
If you know astronomy a little, you will understand why this works. In the northern half of the earth, the sun is in the south at noon. In Russia, the real noon is one o'clock. If at that time we point the hour-hand at the sun, the hour-hand and number one will point south. That is why you must imagine a line which will run from the center of the watch through a point half-way between the hour-hand and number one. It will point south. If you are in the southern part of our planet, you must point number 12 at the sun. The line which you can imagine between number twelve and the hour-hand will then show south.
46. When we carry out this experiment in the northern part of the earth, we should point ______ at the sun.
A. number 12 B. the minute-hand
C. the hour-hand D. number one
47. The passage tells us that we can use a watch on a sunny day______.
A. to study the weather B. to show direction
C. to enjoy ourselves D. to keep good time
48. If you are in Australia, which of the following is the right way to show north?
解析：澳大利亚在南半球, 因此根据第二段中的说明“If you are in the southern part of our planet, you must point number 12 at the sun. ”因此数字12应该指向太阳。
49. What's the best title for this passage?
A. Your Watch Becomes a Compass
B. An Interesting Watch
C. The Story of a Watch
D. The Sun and a Watch
I fell in love with England because it was quaint(古雅的)—all those little houses, looking terribly old-fashioned but nice, like dolls' houses. I loved the countryside and the pubs, and I loved London. I've slightly changed my mind after seventeen years because I think it's an ugly town now.
Things have changed. For everybody, England meant gentlemen, fair play, and good manners. The fair play is going, unfortunately, and so are the gentlemanly attitudes and good manners—people shut doors heavily in your face and politeness is disappearing.
I regret that there are so few comfortable meeting places. You're forced to live indoors. In Paris I go out much more, to restaurants and nightclubs. To meet friends here it usually has to be in a pub, and it can be difficult to go there alone as a woman. The cafes are not terribly nice.
As a woman, I feel unsafe here. I spend a bomb on taxis because I will not take public transport after 10 p. m. I used to use it, but now I'm afraid.
The idea of family seems to be more or less non-existent in England. My family is well united and that's typically French. In Middlesex I had a neighbor who is 82 now. His family only lived two miles away, but I took him to France for Christmas once because he was always alone.
50. The writer doesn't like London because she______.
A. is not used to the life there now
B. has lived there for seventeen years
C. prefers to live in an old-fashioned house
D. has to be polite to everyone she meets there

52. The underlined part “it” (in Para. 4) refers to ______.

53. The writer took her neighbor to France for Christmas because he______.

B. had never been to France
C. was from a typical French family
D. didn't like the British idea of family

Although Li would only have several minutes, she started working on her interview questions last August after asking for the chance. “Journalists” work is by no means easy. You need to do lots of homework on your interviewee, ” she said. She read many books about Putin and Russia in her spare time.

I hope you are fine. I would like to tell you something about APEC in Shanghai now.
A lot of books about APEC are now popular in China, especially in Shanghai. At present, most of them are introducing APEC's history, development course, the economic cooperations among members and its future.
