The Internet brings us many advantages.
With the Internet, people can send and receive e-mails. On the Internet, people can skim over news. Using the Telnet, the user anywhere on the Internet can log into any other machine on which he has an account. It is possible to use the FTP program to copy files from one machine on the Internet to another.
But the Internet also brings us troubles.
Internet use seems to cause a fall in psychological(心理的)health, according to research at
Carnegie Mellon University. Even people who spent just a few hours a week on the Internet experienced more depression and loneliness than those who logged on less often, the two-year study showed. And it wasn't that people who were already feeling bad spent more time on the Internet, but that using the Net actually seemed to cause the bad feelings.
Researchers are puzzled over the results, which were completely opposite to what they had expected. They expected that the Net would prove socially healthier than television, since the Net allows users to choose their information and to communicate with others.The fact that Internet use reduces time used for family and friends may be the reason for the drop in health, researchers said. Faceless, bodiless“virtual”(虚拟的)communication may be less psychologically satisfying than actual conversations, and the relationships formed through it may not be so deep. Another possibility is that exposure to the wider world through the Net makes users less satisfied with their lives.
“But_it's_important_to_remember_this_is_not_about_the_technology;_it's_about_how_it_i，”said one of the researchers. “It really points to the need for considering social factors(因素)when you design new inventions.”
36．The writer mainly wants to tell us that________.
A．the Internet can bring people many advantages
B．the Internet use may cause psychological problems
C．the Internet users are not satisfied with their lives
D．we shouldn't use the Internet
37．Why are the researchers puzzled over the results?
A．Because the results were completely different from what they had thought.
B．Because the Net proved socially healthier than television.
C．Because the Internet users were all healthier.
D．Because the Internet users experienced less depression and loneliness.
38．What may be the reasons why the Internet use causes a fall in psychological health?
A．Internet use reduces time used for family and friends.
B．Virtual communication is less psychologically satisfying than actuall conversations.
C．Exposure to the wider world through the Net makes users less satisfied with their lives.
D．All the above.
39．According to the passage, which of the following is TRUE?

B．The two-year study showed that using the Net seemed to cause the bad feelings.

40．What does the underlined part in the last paragraph mean?
A．What matters is not the technology but how it is used.
B．This passage is not about the technology but about how it is used.
C．We should remember to learn about the technology.
D．We should remember to learn how to use computers.

Most of them are small machines sitting on people’s desks at home, but there are still many others in schools, offices or large companies. These computers are owned by people and companies, but no one really owns the Internet itself.

the Internet. You can use it during lessons or free time. Libraries often have computers joined to the Internet. You are welcome to use it at only time.

In its Western and Japanese style gardens, Shinjuku Gyoen features more than one thousand cherry trees of over a dozen varieties.

Sumida Park Early April
A few steps from Asakusa Station, free admission

10 minute walk from Hakusan or Myogadani Station, 330 yen, 9:00 to 16:30

One of our biggest fears nowadays is that our kids might have spent too much time with electronic devices rather than experiencing the natural world.Fear-producing TV and computer games are leading to a serious disconnect between kids and the great outdoors, which will change the wild places of the world, its creatures and human health for the worse, unless adults get working on child's play.
Each of us had a place in nature we go sometimes, even if it was torn down. We cannot be the last generation to have that place. At this rate, kids who miss the sense of wonder outdoors will not grow up to be protectors of natural landscapes. “If the decline in parks use continues across North America, who will defend parks against encroachment(蚕食)？” asks Richard Louv, author of Last Child in the Woods.
Without having a nature experience, kids can turn out just fine, but they are missing out a huge enrichment of their lives. That applies to everything from their physical health and mental health, to stress levels, creativity and cognitive(认知的) skills. Experts predict modern kids will have poorer health than their parents—and
they say a lack of outside play is surely part of it; research suggests that kids do better academically in schools with a nature component and that play in nature fosters(培养) leadership. Even a tiny outdoor experience can create wonder in a child.The three-year-old turning over his first rock realizes he is not alone in the world. A clump(丛) of trees on the roadside can be the whole universe in his eyes. We really need to value that more.
Kids are not to blame. They are over-protected and frightened. It is dangerous out there from time to time, but repetitive stress from computers is replacing breaking an arm as a childhood rite(仪式)of passage.
Everyone from developers to schools and outdoorsy citizens, should help regain for our kids some of the freedom and joy of exploring, taking friendship in fields and woods that strengthen love, respect and need for the landscape. As parents, we should devote some of our energies to taking our kids into nature. This could yet be our greatest cause.
51．Which of the following is not listed as a reason for children being disconnected
A．The wild has been more dangerous than ever.
B．Parents are too protective of their children.
C．TV plays sometimes inspire fear into children's heart.
D．Many children are lost in the world of technology.
52．According to the passage, children without experiencing nature will________.
A．keep a high sense of wonder
B．be over-protected by their parents
C．be less healthy both physically and mentally
D．change wild places and creatures for the better
53．According to the author, children's breaking an arm is________.
A．the fault on the part of their parents
B．the natural experience in their growing up
C．the result of their own carelessness in play
D．the effect of their repetitive stress from computers
54．In writing this passage, the author mainly intends to________.
A．blame children for getting lost in computer games
B．encourage children to protect parks from encroachment
C．show his concern about children's lack of experience in nature
D．inspire children to keep the sense of wonder about things around
55．Which of the following can be used as the title for the passage?
A．Too much play spoils a child
B．Getting closer to nature relieve stress
C．Outdoor activities build up character
D．Take kids to nature more often for their growth
