Riding a London subway

作者:高考英语 文章来源:高考英语 点击数: 更新时间:2013-9-18 10:38:22 | 【字体:
 

    Riding a London subway, a person from other countries will notice one major difference: in London, people do not look at each other.In fact, eye contact is avoided at all times. That’s not rudeness ― people are just too busy to bother looking.
  Busy doing what, you ask? Well, they’re certainly not using the time for a moment of quiet thinking.Nor are they reading a book.New technology has replaced quiet habits.Today the only acceptable form of book on the London underground is an e-book.
  Apple must earn a fortune from London commuters(使用月票上下班者). Since the launch of the iPhone in 2007, over 40, 000 ― yes, 40, 000 “apps” have been designed.
  Commuters love them because they are the perfect time - fillers. One “app”, called iShoot, is a game that features tanks.Another one, Tube Exits, tells passengers where to sit on the train to be closest to the exit of their destination. iSteam clouds the iPhone screen when you breathe into the microphone. You can then write in the “steam” on your phone screen.
  For those without an iPhone, another Apple product, the iPod, may be the distraction (消遣) of choice. It’s not just teenagers who “plug in” to their music - iPods are a popular way to pass the time for all ages.
  And if games, e-books and music aren’t enough to keep you occupied, then perhaps you would prefer a film? The development of palm DVD technology means many commuters watch their favorite TV shows or films on the way to work.With all these distractions, it’s amazing that people still remember to get off the train.
64. Those who want to save time to reach where they go can download ________ to their   
   iPhones.
    A. iShoot        B. Tube Exits       C. iSteam       D. iPod
65. People in London do not make eye contact on the subway because ________.
    A. they are going to work and have no time to communicate with each other 
    B. they love reading books and do not want to be disturbed
    C. they feel sleepy because of getting up early
    D. they’re busy playing games, reading e-books, listening to music or watching films
66. The underlined word “apps” in the third paragraph means ________.
    A. computers                 
    B. programs downloaded for the iPhone
    C. computer companies        
    D. fortune from London commuters
67.The main idea of the passage is that ________.
    A. London commuters are unfriendly to strangers
    B. Apple has earned a lot of money from selling 40, 000 apps
    C. technology is changing how London commuters spend their traveling time
    D. riding a London subway is a must when visiting London


答案

64.B. 细节理解题。根据Another one, Tube Exits, tells passengers where to sit on the train to be closest to the exit of their destination.故选B。
65.D. 细节理解题。根据第一段的最后一句及全文内容可知。
66.B. 词义猜测题。根据本句中的the launch of the iPhone 和have been designed以及第四段第二句中的is a game可知它是电脑里已经设计好的程序。
67.C. 主旨大意题。整篇短文叙述了伦敦的人们是怎样打发他们在做地铁的时间的。

翻译

    乘坐伦敦地铁,来自其他国家的人会注意到的一个主要区别:在伦敦,人们不看对方。事实上,在任何时候都避免目光接触。这不是粗鲁―人都太忙了,看。
    忙着干什么,你问?嗯,他们肯定不使用安静思考了一会儿时间。他们也不会读一本书。新技术取代了安静的习惯。今天接受伦敦地铁的书的唯一形式是电子书。
    苹果必须从伦敦通勤赚钱(使用月票上下班者)。自从iPhone推出的2007,超过40,000是40,000―,“应用程序”已设计。
    通勤者爱他们因为他们是完美的时间-填料。一个“应用程序”,称为iShoot,是一场特征的坦克。另一个,地铁出口,告诉旅客坐火车是最接近目的地的出口。isteam云的iPhone屏幕时,你的呼吸进入麦克风。然后你可以写在“蒸汽”对你的手机屏幕。
    对于那些没有iPhone,苹果的iPod,另一种产品,可以分心(消遣)的选择。这不只是年轻人的“即插即用”,他们的音乐-iPod是通过为所有年龄的时候,一种流行的方式。
    如果游戏,电子图书和音乐不足以保持住,那么也许你喜欢电影吗?棕榈dvd技术的发展意味着许多人看自己喜欢的电视节目或者在上班的路上的电影。所有这些分心的事情,人们还记得下车很神奇。
