B Today，our word is“hello” ．Where did the word．come from? There are all kinds of ideas． Some say it came from a French word meaning“ho”there．This greeting may have arrived in England during the Norman Conquest(诺曼底登陆)in the year 1066． “Ho”there changed slowly over the years and became today’s“hello” ． Another story of this word says it came from the word“hallo” ．People often use“hallo” in England in the 1300’s during the days of poet(诗人)Geoffrey Chaucer．200 years 1ater, in William Shakespeare’s time， “hallo”had become“hello”and sailors and hunters(捕猎者) used sound like“horllo”and“hollo” ． A Brooklyn college professor，Helen Curlisburg，reported that he had found that true story behind the word “ hello ” ． He said American inventor ， Thomas Edison ， created it ． Professor
Curlisburg said that at first Edison used the word “hullo” when working on his sound recording machine．Later，when Edison became interested in the telephone．he changed the word．Professor Curlisburg offered evidence for his idea．He discovered a letter written by Thomas in 1877 to a businessman in the city Pittsburgh，Pennsylvania．Pittsburgh was about to get a telephone system(系统)．In the letter，Edison suggested using a word“hello” ． Thomas Edison did not invent the telephone．Alexander Graham Bell did．Bell wanted people to use a different word when they began speaking on the telephone．He liked the word sailors used to communicate(交流)with another ship： “Ahorli” ． Edison’s word，however, proved more popular． It was a shorter and better way of saying：Are you there or are you ready to talk? 40．Which country is the word“ho”from?

C We liked the first X-Men movie，loved the second，but how about the third and the final one? Many felt disappointed(失望的)that there was a change of directors(导演)．But really，if the story is good，so what? X 一 3 begins in the past．the day Professor X and Magneto，then still friends，visited a young Jean Grey to offer her a way to control(控制)her energy，for she could be a very clever or dangerous girl some day． Then we come back to the present．Jean died and it made everyone mad，especially her husband Cyclops．After hearing a voice in his head，Cyclops goes to the lake Jean has died in, only to find her standing before him． She has returned but changed．
Knowing that Professor X has found a way to do with mutant(变异人)，Magneto，now the leader(首 领)of mutant，wants to start a war to fight man． It seems that the war between man and mutant has come at last，and nothing will be the same ever again． Does the story sound hard to understand? Good，it should，because it does．The writers kill characters that are BIG．And they don’t write funny words that could keep the X—men movie entertaining for years．But there are still enough reasons to love X—3 一 it’s big，it's loud， and it has an all-out war．All in all， “X—Men 3：The Last Stand”is just what we hoped，nothing more，nothing less．Anyone who enjoyed the first two will like this one． 44．Why were many people disappointed at the movie X 一 3 ? A．Because X-Men 1 and 2 are excellent and better than any other one． B．Because the actors and actresses changed into others． C．Because the directors are not the ones who directed X 一 1 and X—2． D．Because X-3 has nothing to do with X—1 and X—2． 45．Which of the following is NOT TRUE?
