Most people will answer a ringing phone. Usually you don’t know who is phoning or how urgent their business is, so a ringing phone is difficult to ignore. In one experiment, a researcher wrote down the numbers of several public phones in stations and airports. Then he called the numbers. Someone nearly always answered. When he asked why, people usually said, “Because it rang.”

    A few years ago in New Jersey, a man with a gun killed 13 people. Armed police surrounded his house but he refused to come out. A reporter found out the phone number of the house and called. The man put down his gun and answered the phone. “What do you want?” he said, “I’m really busy right now.”

    Imagine you’re at work and the phone is ringing in someone else’s office. Do you answer it or not? In one survey on telephone use, 51% of participants(参与者) told researchers that they did. We can’t ignore the phone and for that reason, it forces its way into our lives. It interrupts(打扰) what we are doing and on top of that, the caller is often someone we don’t really want to talk to. However, in the survey, 58% said they never turned off the phone, and 67% didn’t mind if someone called during a television program. For 44% it wasn’t a problem if someone rang during a meal, while only 28% were angry. If someone phoned in the middle of the night, 40% told researchers that they got nervous or frightened, while around 30% got angry.

    Of course, when someone is really angry, you can choose to hang up on them. This is in fact one of the rudest things you can do on the phone, but 79% said they were prepared to do it in some cases. Only 6% told researchers they never hung up on people.  

1.The gunman answered the phone because ____.

A. he decided to give in to the police 

B. it was difficult to ignore a ringing phone

C. he was angry at the ringing phone

D. he decided to be friendly with the media

2.How do people feel while someone rings during a meal?

A. 67% of the participants got angry.     

B. 44% of the participants didn’t mind.

C. 40% of the participants got nervous or frightened.

D. 30% of the participants got angry.

3.What does the sentence “79% said they were prepared to do it in some cases” (in

the last paragraph) mean?

A. They were angry with the rude callers.

B. They were prepared to become those rude callers.

C. They were likely to hang up on annoying callers.

D. They never hung up on others because it was rude.

4.The purpose of the survey is to find out ____.

A. how the phone helps people’s work

B. what role the phone plays in people’s lives

C. why people mind a ringing phone sometimes

D. when the phone communication is more welcome

 

Is your TV connected to the Internet? What about your chair, or your fridge? Probably they are not. But in the future, most things in your home may be connected, thanks to the so-called “Internet of things”.

    The Internet of things may be coming sooner than you think. Earlier this year, Samsung CEO spent a lot of time talking about the Internet things. He said that four years from now, every Samsung product will be part of the Internet of things, no matter whether it’s a remote control or a washing machine.

    So, how do household objects that are part of the Internet of things work? Well, think of a common chair. When connected to the Internet, the chair warms up when it knows the user has just walked into the room and is feeling cold.

    An Internet-connected camera could help people feel safer in their homes. It can know people’s faces and has an infrared sensor(红外传感器), so even if it’s dark it can see when someone passes by and send you a message on your smartphone to let you know who’s there. If the person is someone you don’t know, it can tell you that, too.

    But according to MIT Technology Review, whether companies are connecting dog food bowls or security(安全)systems to the Internet, there may be some problems. For example, many early connected-home objects don’t have much built-in security, which means they could be hacked. Moreover, it could be difficult to get these new machines to work together especially when they are made by different companies. To fight this, many companies have joined the Open Interconnect Consortium, which had 45 members by late 2015.

    So, picture this: you enter your home.The temperature changes to make you feel comfortable. Your favorite music starts playing for you. Do you think that this would be a good thing? It may happen sooner than you think.

1.According to Samsung CEO, when will his product be part of the Internet of things?

A. In 2010        B. In 2020

C. In 2030       D. In 2040

2.We can infer(推断) from paragraphs 3 and 4 that _____________.

A. the chair can know whether the user feels cold or not

B. an unusual chair can warm up when it knows the user comes in

C. an Internet-connected camera can be used to take photos in the house

D.an Internet-connected camera can be connected to the user's smartphone

3.What does the article mainly talk about?

A. Advantages of living with the Internet 

B. Disadvantages of living with the Internet

C. The coming “Internet of things”

D. The impossible “Internet of things”

4.Which of the following words best describes the writer’s tone (语气)in the article?

A. Doubtful(可疑的)      B. Hopeful

C. Humorous                 D. Worried
