III .Reading Comprehension （30 points，2 points each）
Questions 21 to 25 are based on the following passage.
Some multimedia companies predict that， in a few years time， production of newspapers and magazines will have been halved， for we will he turning to our computers to get the latest news. To publishers， this means the arrival of the e-book.
But is this the end of the book and the newspaper？ I doubt it. I do not think anything can replace the book. This is partly because， although some people believe that technology is capable of anything， it isnt yet！ To begin with， the Internet is slow. Even though work is constantly being carried out to solve this problem， demand for the Internet is increasing too fast for scientists to keep up. What is more， it takes much longer for us to read on the computer. Research shows that we read 50% more quickly on paper than on a computer screen.
In addition， it seems that we like the feel of books and magazines－we like to put them in our bags or pockets and take them out on the bus or the train on the way to work. We like to sit and read in the par；k or on the beach. For many of us， the idea of Sunday morning without a cup of coffee and some newspapers is unimaginable.
We like to decorate our rooms with them， too .How many of us would exchange what we have now－a row of books in a bookcase， or a pile of magazines on the coffee table－for a row of little screens？
Nevertheless， by the time e-books have become as widely available as printed ones， it is likely that at least some of us will have changed our minds.

Questions 31 to 35 are based on the following passage.
There are two basic ways to see growth： one as a product， the other as a process.People generally look upon personal growth as a result or product that can easily be identified and measured. The worker who gets a promotion the student whose grades improve， the foreigner who learns a new language一一all these are examples of people who have measurable results to show for their efforts.
By contrast， the process of personal growth is much more difficult to determine， since by definition it is a journey and not the specific signposts along the way. The process is not the road itself， but rather the attitudes and feelings people have， as they encounter new experiences and unexpected obstacles.In this process， the journey never really ends； there are always new ways to experience the world， new ideas to try， and new challenges to accept.
In order to grow and travel new roads， people need to be willing to take risks， to confront the unknown， and to accept the possibility that they may fail at first. How we see ourselves as we try a new way of life is essential to our ability to grow. Do we see ourselves as quick and curious？ If so， then we tend to take more chances and to be more open to unfamiliar experiences.Do we think we are shy？ Then our shyness can cause us to hesitate， to act more slowly， and not to take a step until we know the ground is safe. Do we think we are slow to adapt to changes o.r that we are not smart enough to cope with a new challenge？ Then we are likely to take a more passive role or not try at all.
These feelings of insecurity and self-doubt are both unavoidable and necessary if we are to change and grow. However， if we do not confront and overcome these internal fears and doubts and if we protect ourselves too much， we cease to grow. We become trapped inside a shell of our own making.
