六、阅读理解。阅读下列短文，回答短文后的问题，从 A、B、C、D 四个答案中选择一个最佳选项。 （每 题 2 分，共 20 分） Passage One The World Wide Web is a hypertext-based system for finding and accessing Internet resources; it is a set of programs, standards, and protocols governing the way in which multimedia files are created and displayed on the Internet. It can provide access to a variety of Internet resources from the same interface, including FTP,
Gopher and Usenet newsgroups in addition to WWW sites.
The World Wide Web is a distributed, multimedia
and hypertext system, and thus a unique medium for communication and for publishing. The term is used to describe an interlinked system of documents in which a user may jump from one document to another in a nonlinear, associative way. The ability to jump from one document to the next is made possible through the use of hyperlinks. By click the hyperlink, the user is immediately connected to the document specified by the link. Multimedia files on the Internet are called hypermedia documents. The explosion in use and popularity of Internet in the 1990s is most likely due to the graphics-intensive nature of the World Wide Web. Individuals, companies, and institutions use the Web in many ways. The most widely used tool on the Web is electronic mail, or E-mail, which is used to send written messages between individuals or groups of individuals, often geographically separated by large distances. As a very convenient and inexpensive way to transmit messages, E-mail has dramatically affected scientific, personal, and business communications. World Wide Web has found application everywhere. E-commerce (business via the Internet) has grown out of businesses that started to advertise their presence via a Web site. This has broadened into selling products and services, not only to customers but between businesses themselves. The costs of commercial transactions are negligible, compared with using the traditional distribution and retail network. What is more revolutionary is that the Web can lead to greater political involvement in decision making for ordinary people, via devoting systems. Web technology has also been extended to handle conferencing and real time communications, to enable it to act like groupware, which facilitates people collaborating over a net-work, especially over an Intranet. The future of the World Wide Web is certain; it will survive and grow. What is uncertain is how it will affect other areas of everyday life.

C、 The influence of the WWW will possibly not be as big as it is. D、 E-conferencing is enabled by Web technology.
Passage Two Linux is an operating system that was initially created as a hobby by a young student, Linus Torvalds, at the University of Helsinki in Finland. Linus had an interest in Minix, a small UNIX system, and decided to
develop a system that exceeded the Minix standards. He began his work in 1991 when he released version 0.02 and worked steadily until 1994 when version 1.0 of the Linux Kernel was released. The kernel, at the heart of all Linux systems, is developed and released under the GNU General Public License and its source code is freely available to everyone. system is developed.

There are now literally hundreds of companies and organizations and an equal number
of individuals that have released their own versions of operating systems based on the Linux kernel. Apart from the fact that it’s freely distributed, Linux’s functionality, adaptability and robustness, has made it the main alternative for proprietary Unix and Microsoft operating systems. IBM, Hewlett-Packard
and other giants of the computing world have embraced Linux and support its ongoing development. More than a decade after its initial release, Linux is being adopted worldwide primarily as a server platform. as a home and office desktop operating system is also on the rise. Its use
The operating system can also be
incorporated directly into microchips in a process called “embedding” and is increasingly being used this way
in appliances and devices. Throughout most of the 1990’s, tech pundits, largely unaware of Linux’s potential, dismissed it as a computer hobbyist project, unsuitable for the general public’s computing needs. Through the efforts of
developers of desktop management systems such as KDE and GNOME, office suite project OpenOffice.org and the Mozilla web browser project, to name only a few, there are now a wide range of applications that run on Linux and it can be used by anyone regardless of his/her knowledge of computers.

It will be used more by home users Hard to tell
