Everybody has heard about the Internet, do you know what an “intranet” is? It is this: just as the Internet connects people around the world, intranets connect people within a single company. In fact, intranets make of the same software programs as the Internet to contact computers and people. This means that you do not have to buy a lot of additional programs to set up an intranet service. If your intranet is working properly, it can link together a huge amount of information which is in different places in the company. In this way, people can get the information they need, regardless where it comes from. A company intranet can, of course, be used for unimportant information like office memos or canteen menus. But an intranet should provide important information people need to make decisions about new products, costs and so on. The intranet is willing to share their information with other people. , many departments don’t want to share their specialist knowledge with others. Another problem that often occurs is that top managers like to use the intranet to “communicate down” rather than to "communicate across”. That is, they use the intranet to give orders, not to exchange information between themselves and others working in the same organization. 

Read the following passage then choose the best answer to each question below.

Curious about which digital camera is best for you? Where you can hear reggae music in Toronto? Or what the distance is to Mars? Question-and-answer sites offer an alternative to the ubiquitous search engine: a place to post a question – and then wait for another Internet user to respond.

The idea isn’t new: Usenet newsgroups have let us do this for years. But Q&A sites offer features that enhance and simplify the process. All offer eBay-like feedback, where users rate the helpfulness of experts: over time, these scores become a benchmark score for determining how trustworthy someone’s answers are. Question-and-answer sites also e-mail you when an expert has responded, and they offer personalized page where you can see the questions you’ve asked, the people who have responded, and what they’ve had to say.

Read the following passage then choose the best answer to each question below.

People travel for a lot of reasons: Some tourists go to see battlefields or religious shrines. Others are looking for culture, or simply want to have their pictures taken in front of famous places. But most European tourists are looking for a sunny beach to lie on.

Northern Europeans are willing to pay a lot of money and put up with a lot of inconveniences for the sun because they have so little of it. Residents of cities like London, Copenhagen, and Amsterdam spend a lot of their winter in the dark because the days are so short, and much of the rest of the year in the rain. This is the reason why the Mediterranean has always attracted them. Every summer, more than 25 million people travel to Mediterranean resorts and beaches for their vacation. They all come for the same reason, sun!

The huge crowds mean lots of money for the economies of Mediterranean countries. Italy’s 30,000 hotels are booked solid every summer. And 13 million people camp out on French beaches, parks, and roadsides. Spain’s long sandy coastline attracts more people than anywhere else: 37 million tourists visit yearly, or one tourist for every person living in Spain.

But there are signs that the area is getting more tourists than it can handle. The Mediterranean is already one of the most polluted seas on earth. And with increased tourism, it’s getting worse. The French can’t figure out what to do with all the garbage left by campers around St. Tropez. And in many places, swimming is dangerous because of pollution.

None of this, however, is spoiling anyone’s fun. The Mediterranean gets more popular every year with tourists. Obviously, they don’t go there for clean water and solitude. They tolerate traffic jams and seem to like crowded beaches. They don’t even mind the pollution. No matter how dirty the water is, the coastline still looks beautiful. And as long as the sun shines, it’s still better than sitting in the cold rain in Berlin, London, or Oslo.

In paragraph 2, cities like London, Copenhagen, and Amsterdam are mentioned _______. 

  • to prove that they have got more tourism than they handle
  • to tell us how wealthy their people are
  • to suggest that these cities lack places of historic interest and scenic beauty
  • to show that they are not good cities in terms of geography and climate

The writer seems to imply that Europeans travel mostly for the reason that ______. 

  • they want to see historic remains or religious spots.
  • they would like to take pictures in front of famous sites.
  • they wish to escape from the cold, dark and rainy days back at home.
  • they are interested in different cultural traditions and social customs.

  • every Spanish is visited by a tourist every year.
  • every person living in Spain has to take care of a tourist annually.
  • every year almost as many tourists visit Spain as there are people living in that country.
  • all the 37 million people living in Spain are tourists.
