Part III. Reading Comprehension (45 points)
Directions: There are following three passages. Each passage is followed by several questions or unfinished statements. For each of them there are four choices marked A, B, C and D. Choose the one that fits best according to the information given in the passage you have just read.
Throughout the world, every night children and their elders are “talking” online—many of them are talking at the same time. If you have been joining in the chat room conversations, you might have become one of the millions who write in a special, short form of English.
It’s fast: it allows you to talk to six people at once. It’s convenient: you can use three or four words per exchange. It takes cleverness, concentration and quick fingers. And it requires very simple language. There’s neither time nor space for explanations. Why bother to press the keys telling six friends you have to leave for a moment to take care of your little brother when BRB (=be right back) will do? Want to enter a conversation? Just type PMFJI (=pardon me for jumping in). Interested in whom you’re talking to? Type A/S/L, the common request to know your net pal’s age, sex and location. You may get 15/M/NY as a reply from your pal. If something makes you laugh, say you’re OTF (=on the floor), or LOL (=laughing out loud), or join the two into ROTFL (=rolling on the floor laughing). And when it’s time to get back to work or go to bed, you type GTG (=got to go) or TTYL (=talk to you later).
People want to write as fast as possible, and they want to get their ideas across as quickly as they can. Capital(大写的)letters in sentences are left in the dust, except when expressing feelings, as it takes more time to hold down the “shift” key and use capitals. Punctuation(标点)is going, too.

A. learn millions of words
B. pick out things to buy

F. Nowadays most children like to go to school.
G. So even after we have left school, we have to continue to learn.
Some children think that they go to school just to learn their mother tongue, English and other foreign languages, mathematics, geography, history, science and a few other subjects. Are these the only things they should learn at school?
Actually children go to school to prepare themselves for the time when they will be grown up and will have to support themselves. but there is one more important reason why children go to school.
There is more to education than just learning facts. We go to school above all to learn how to learn. Learning is not just for school but for life. A man who really knows how to learn will always be successful because whenever he is faced with a completely new task of problem, he will teach himself how to deal with it in the best way. Therefore, children do not go to school just to learn languages, mathematics, geography, etc.
