放弃其中一个并陈述理由。请你以“Which would you give up，
TV，cell or Web？”为题，写一篇英语短文。 注意：1.词数100左右； 2.可以适当增加细节，以使行文连贯。 _________________________________________________ _________________________________________________ _________________________________________________
【经典范文】 We are now living in an information age, in which TV, cells and the Web are widely used. It seems that many people can't enjoy themselves without them. However, if I had to give up one of them, I would turn off the TV rather than switch off my cellphone or cut off the Internet. I could do without TV because few shows are mystery and there're too many commercials. Besides, most programmes on TV are also available elsewhere.
As for cellphones and the Web, they are more necessary to me. I need a cellphone to keep in touch with my friends and family, and almost all information can be gathered on the Internet.
