Imagine, one day, getting out of bed in Beijing and being at your office ……阅读理解及答案

    Imagine, one day, getting out of bed in Beijing and being at your office in Shanghai in only a couple of hours, and then, after a full day of work, going back home to Beijing and having dinner there.
    Sounds unusual, doesn't it? But it's not that unrealistic, with the development of China’s high-speed railway system. China has an even greater high-speed railway plan to connect the country with Southeast Asia, and finally Eastern Europe.
    China is planning to extend its own high-speed railway network to up to 17 countries in 10 to 15 years, eventually reaching London and Singapore.  
    If China’s plan for the high-speed railway goes forward, people could rush from London to Beijing  within two days. The new system would still follow China’s high-speed railway standard. And the trains would be able to go 346 kilometers an hour, almost as fast as some airplanes.
    China’s bullet train, the one connecting Wuhan to Guangzhou, already has the World’s fastest average speed. It covers 1,069 kilometers in about three hours.
    Of course, there are some technical challenges to overcome. There are so many issues that need to be settled, such as safety and maintenance of railway tracks. So, it’s important to pay attention to every detail. But the key issue is really money. China is already spending hundreds of billions of yuan on longer railway construction.
    China prefers that the other countries provide natural resources rather than financial investment. Resources from those countries could flood into China to support development.
    It’ll be a win-win project. For other countries, the railway network will certainly create more opportunities for business, tourism and so on, not to mention the better communication among those countries.
    For China, such a project would not only connect it with the rest of Asia and bring some much-needed resources, but would also help develop China’s far west. We predict that in the coming decades, millions of people will move to the western parts, where the land is empty and resources unused. With high-speed trains, people will set up factories and business centers in the west. And they’ll trade with Central Asian and Eastern European countries.
32. According to the passage, the greatest challenge to the new high-speed railway plan is _________.
   A. financial problems                      B. safety of the system 
   C. technical issues                         D. maintenance of railway tracks
33. What’s the author’s attitude towards China’s high-speed railway plan?
   A. Positive           B. Negative           C. Doubtful        D. Critical
34. China’s new high-speed railway plan will be a win-win project because__________ .
   A. China and the countries involved will get much-needed resources
   B. China and the countries involved will benefit from the project in various ways
   C. China will develop its railway system and communication with other countries
   D. foreign countries involved will develop their railway transportation, business and tourism
35. Which of the following might be the best title for the passage? 
   A. International Railway Network                   B. High-speed Bullet Trains
   C. Big Railway Dreams                      D. New Railway Standards
参考答案:  32-35: AABC
