Newspapers and television news programs always seem to report about the bad things happening in society. However, there is a place where readers can find some good news. That place is the website called HappyNews. The man behind HappyNews is Byron Reese. Reese set up HappyNews because he thought other news sources were giving people an unbalanced view of the world. Reese said about HappyNews, “The news media gives you a distorted view of the world by exaggerating bad news, misery, and despair. We’re trying to balance out the scale.”
Not everyone agrees with Reese’s view, though. Many people think that news sources have a responsibility to provide news that is helpful to people. People need to know about issues or problems in today’s society. Then people are better able to make their own decisions about things that affect their daily lives. Reese said that HappyNews is not trying to stop people from learning about issues or problems. HappyNews is just trying to provide a balanced picture of today’s world.
By the end of its first month online, HappyNews had more than 70,000 unique readers. About 60 percent of those readers were women. Something else unusual makes HappyNews different from any of the other news or information websites that are on the Internet. Unlike many other websites, HappyNews gets fan mail from its readers on a daily basis.
Question 34: What is the best title for the reading?
A. “Good News for a Change”
B. “Newspapers vs. Online News”
C. “Byron Reese Tells People How to be Happy”
D. “Why Women Like HappyNews”
Question 35: How is HappyNews different than other news sources?
A.HappyNews does not exaggerate its stories.
B. All of the stories are written by Reese.
C. Its stories are not about bad things.
D. The website only has stories about women.
Question 36: Why might some people NOT like HappyNews?
- Reese’s stories are about misery and despair.
- Some sources give a balanced view.
- The stories are from around the world.
- It doesn’t tell them about important issues or problems.
Question 37:Which of the following is NOT true about HappyNews after its first month online?
A. Reese used it to create other websites.
B. It had thousands of readers.
C. Readers sent in nice letters about it every day.

Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or D on your answer sheet to indicate the correct answer to each of the questions from 44 to 50.
Do you know the indispensable part of your computer that is more than a century old? The modern typewriter was born in the back of Kleinsteuber’s Machine Shop in Milwaukee. That’s where Christopher Sholes took some piano wire and a telegraph key and built a crude typing device in 1868. It could type only one letter, a rather fuzzylooking w, but it was still pretty amazing for its time. Sholes and his partners designed a more ambitious model with all the letters in the alphabet.
The typewriter had a problem, though. Try to type quickly on it, and the type bars banged into one another and got stuck. The solution to that problem resulted in the keyboard we know today.
Sholes consulted with an educator who helped him analyze the most common pairings of letters in the English language. He then split up those letters so that their type bars were farther apart and less likely to jam. That in turn dictated the layout of the keyboard – known as QWERTY, for the first five letters in the upper row. In a manner of speaking, he slowed down the typists to prevent jamming, and thus speed up the typing.
In 1873 the Sholes & Glidden Type Writer became the first to be mass-produced, and its keyboard layout was soon standard on all typewriters. The original Sholes & Glidden typed only capitals and was designed in an awkward fashion that prevented the typist from looking at the paper while typing. Ads trumpeted its value to clergymen and lawyers, but it sold quite poorly at first. One reason: it was expensive. It cost $125, the equivalent of more than $1,700 today.
Other keyboard layouts have been created since, and some are demonstrably more efficient, but the original continues to thrive. It is a telling illustration of the power of inertia and the reward of being first.

A. a piano wire
B. a modern typewriter
C. a telegraph key
D. a crude typing device
Question 46:What was the weak point of the first typewriter model?
A. amazing letters
B. strange-looking w
C. poor design
D. low efficiency
Question 47: What does the passage state?
- Typists slowed down the improvement of the keyboard.
- A person could type very quickly on the first typewriter.
- Sholes avoided problems having rearranged the letters.
- Educators dictated how to group letters on the keyboard.
Question 48: What is NOT mentioned about the original Sholes & Glidden typewriters?
A. The design was inconvenient for the users.
B. Only capital letters could be typed on it.
C. All the letters were in the upper row.
D. They were widely advertised.
