A. the British Museum is opened for free only in summer B. the British Museum has more than 70 million objects C some of the treasures were brought to England by foreign visitors D. yo u may need 7 days to enjoy everything in the British Museum B When my family moved to America in 2010 from a small viilage in Guangdong, China, we brought not only our luggage, but also our village rules, customs and cult ure. One of the rules is that young people should always respect(尊敬) elders. Unluckily, this rule fed to my very first embarrassment in the United States. I had a part-time job as a waiter in a Chinese restaurant. Once, when I was serving food to a middle-aged couple, the wife asked me how the food could be served so quickly. I told her that I had made sure they got their food quickly because I always respect the elderly. As soon as I said that, her face showed great displeasure. My manager, who happened to hear what I said, took me aside and gave me a long lecture about how sensitive(敏感) Americans are and how they dislike the description "old". I then walked back to the table and apologized to the wife. After the couple heard my reason, they understood that the problem was caused by cultural differences, so they laughed and were no longer angry. In my village in China, people are proud of being old. Not so many people live to be seventy or eighty, and people who reach such an age have the most knowledge and experience. Young people always respect older people because they know they can learn from their rich experience. However, in the United States, people think "growing old" is a problem since "old" shows that a person is going to retire or that the body is not working well. Here many peopl e try to keep themselves away from growing old by doing exercises or jogging, and women put on make up, hoping to look young. When l told the couple in the restaurant that I respect the elderly, they got angry because this caused them to feel they had failed to stay young. I had told them something they didn't want to hear. After that, I changed the way I had been with older people. It is not that l don't respect them any more; I still respect them, but now I don't show my feelings through words. By Jack 44. Jack brought the couple their food very fast because_______.

A. the manager asked him to do so B. he respected the elderly C. the couple wanted him to do so D. he wanted more pay 45. When Jack called the couple "elderly", they became_______. A. nervous B. satisfied C. unhappy D. excited 46. In Jack's hometown, _______. A. people dislike being called "old" B. peo ple are proud of being old C. many people reach the age of seventy or eighty D. the elderly are the first to get food in restaurants C It's Friday evening. My daughters, 3 and 9, sigh(叹息) when I gently take the iPads away from their laps. One by one, our screens are turned off. We light the candles and sit down to have a big meal. We call it our "Technology Shabbar(科技安息日)" which lasts from sunset on Friday to sunset on Saturday. I first understood the importance of disconnecting in 2008, when my father was told that he had got brain cancer. Some days he would have only one good hour, and I wasn't willing to be disturbed when I was with him, so I'd turn off my mobile phone. Soon after, encouraged by National Day of Unplugging(全国断网断电日) on March 1st, my husband and I decided to unplug for one full day every week. During our "Technology Shabbats", time slows. Our Saturdays now feel like mini-vacations. We drive our car or ride our bike. We, with our kids, work in the garden, play board games and cook meals. I feel more balanced. I feel like a better mother, wife and person. Keeping a balance between the good and the bad of technology is my lasting state. The technology we've created makes it possible for us to share knowledge and take in various ideas all o ver the world. But the technology also take something away from us. When we stay up late at night linking(连接) from website to website or sending messages or e-mailing, we click again, and again, and again until we've overloaded(超负荷 的). When we rush into the time full of high technology, it's necessary for us to pay attention to what we are doing online and when we should go off. I will always remember the most important thing in my family: "Technology Shabbat". 47. When is "Technology Shabbat"' in the writer's family? A. Only on Sunday. B. From sunset on Friday to sunset on Saturday. C. Only on Friday. D. From sunset on Saturday to sunset on Sunday. 48. The writer's family have "Technology Shabbat" every week mainly because they hope to _______. A. save energy B. enjoy life together C. stay away from others D. follow National Day of Unplugging 49. What do the writer's family NOT do during their "Technology Shabbats"? A. They drive their car or ride bikes for mini-vacations. B. They light the candles and sit down to have a big meal. C. They work in the garden, play board games and cook meals. D. They stay up late at night linking from website to website. 50. What's the main idea of this passage?

A. Every family must have “Technology Shabbat”. B. A woman should be a good mother or wife. C. People need to stay away from technology properly. D. People had better not send messages, e-mail or chat online.
