Einstein, a great scientist of the age, was almost as strange as his Theory of Relativity.

Einstein said that there were only twelve people living who understood his Theory of Relativity although a good many books had been written to explain it.

He had nothing but contempt(蔑视) for the things most people set their hearts on --- for fame and riches(财富) and luxury(奢华).

Your friends might be in Australia or may be just down the road, but they are all just a few clicks(点击) away. Life has changed for millions of young people across the world who now make friends online. Whether you use chat-rooms, QQ, MSN or ICQ, you are a member of this group.

“I don’t often talk with my parents or grand-parents, but I talk a lot with my old friends on QQ,” said Fox’s Shadow, the online name used by a girl student in China. “Most of my classmates use QQ after school.”

QQ is the biggest messaging service in China. A recorder from Tencent, the company which developed QQ, shows that 4 million people used it one Saturday night in October. And probably Fox’s Shadow was one of them. “I log in(登陆) on Friday nights, and Saturdays when I feel everything around me boring. I usually spend about ten hours chatting on-line every week,” she said. “But I never talk with strangers, especially boys or men.”

Even though she likes chatting, she is careful about making friends with strangers online. “You don’t know who you’re talking to. You should always be careful about whom you believe in online.” Many people would like to meet offline when they feel they have got to know someone very well. Fox’s Shadow once met one of her online friends face to face. It was a girl who was a football fan like herself and they went to a football match together.

A 16-year-old Beijing boy, named Bart Simon online, dislikes QQ uses. “I used to chat on QQ, but I found that most people were talking about foolish things,” he said. Now he chats online in English, using MSN. “I only chat online because I’ve got friends in Japan, the US and Singapore,” he said. “I want to learn more about foreign cultures.” But he spends little time chatting on QQ as he sees it as a waste of time and money.

“If you are really addicted to it, sometimes you can’t give your mind to your lessons,” he said. “And friends in your real life are always more important than those so-called friends you meet online.”

54. People meet face to face offline when they think they _____.

A. have known each other well                   B. have the same interest

C. have enough free time                                    D. have nothing to do

55. Fox’s Shadow thinks QQ is ______.

A. the biggest messaging service in China   B. a good place to spend her time when bored

C. a safe place to chat with strangers       D. the best place to make friends

56. From the passage, we know “they are all just a few clicks away” means “ ______”.

A. it is wonderful to see your friends by clicking

B. it is easy and fast to get in touch with your friends

C. it is possible to live much closer to your friends

D. it is popular to make friends online

57. Which of the following sentence is TRUE according to the passage?________.

A. All the people on QQ are talking about foolish things.

AOne Kind of Building Material

BFactors That Influenced Modern Architecture

CMore Kinds of Buildings as a Result of Modern Life

DThe Achievements in Architecture as an Art

ERestoration(复兴) of Ancient Civilization

FStone and Marble Are Good Building Materials

61.____________.

Architecture is to building as literature to the printed word. The best buildings are often so well constructed that they outlast their original use. They then survive not only as beautiful objects, but as documents of the history of cultures. These achievements are never wholly the work of individuals. Architecture is a social art.

62. ____________.

The Renaissance brought about an entirely new age, not only in philosophy and literature but in the visual arts as well. In architecture, the principles and styles of ancient Greece and Rome were brought back to life and reinterpreted(重新诠释). They remain dominant until the 20th century.

63. ____________.

Many kinds of stone are used as building materials. Stone and marble were chosen for important monuments because they are not burnable and can be expected to endure. Stone architecture was often blended with stone sculpture. The use of stone has declined, however, because a number of other materials are more adaptable to industrial use.

64. ____________.

The complexity of modern life calls for a variety of building. More people live in mass housing and go to work in large office buildings; they spend their income in large shopping centers, send their children to many different kinds of schools, and when they are sick they go to specialized hospitals and clinics. All these different types of building accumulated experiences needed by their designers.

65. ____________.

By the middle of the 20th century, modern architecture, which was influenced by new technology and mass production, was dealing with increasingly complex social needs. Important characteristics of modern architectural works are expanses of glass and the use of reinforced concrete(钢筋混凝土). Advances in elevator technology, air conditioning, and electric lighting have all had important effects.
