Read the following passage and choose the correct answer to each of the questions.
Will people still read books 100 years from now? A few years ago, many people would have said no. It seemed likely that computers and the
Internet would replace books. Now, however, most experts think that books are here to stay.
There are a number of reasons why computers will not replace books entirely. One reason is that books on paper are much cheaper than
computers. And books do not need a power source. You can read a book for as long as you want and wherever you want. You never have to
worry about losing power. Also, many people feel more comfortable reading words in a book than reading words on a computer screen
because it is less tiring to the eyes. Will books in the future be exactly the same as the books you can buy today? The answer to that is no. In
the future, you may only need to buy one book. With this one book, you will be able to read novels, plays, and newspapers. It will look like
today's books, but it will be electronic. One of the people working on the book of the future is Professor Joseph Jacobson from Massachusetts
Institute of Technology. Professor Jacobson's electronic book will have a small button on the side. When you press the button, words will
instantly appear on the page. When you want to read a different story, you can push the button again and a new story will quickly appear.

Baseball evolved from a number of different ball-and stick games (paddle ball, trap ball, one-old-cat, rounders, and town ball)
originating in England. As early as the American Revolution. It was noted that troops played “baseball” in their free time. In 1845 Alexander
Cartwright formalized the New York Knickerbockers’ version of the game: a diamond shaped infield, with bases ninety feet apart, three
strikers – you’re – out , batter out on a caught ball , three outs per inning , a nine man team. “The New York Game” spread rapidly , replacing
earlier localized forms. From its beginnings, baseball was seen as a way of satisfying the recreational needs of an increasingly urban –
industrial society. At its inception it was it was played by and for gentlemen. A club might consists of 40 members. The president would
appoint two captains who would choose teams from among the members. Games were played on Monday and Thursday afternoons, with the
losers often providing a lavish evening’s entertainments for the winners
During the 1850- 70 period the game was changing, however, with increasing commercialism (charging admission), under – the –
table payments to exceptional to players, and gambling on the outcome of games. By 1868 it was said that a club would have their regular
professional ten, an amateur first - nine , and their” muffins “ (the gently duffers who once ran the game) . Beginning with the first openly all
– salaried team (Cincinnati’s Red Stocking Club) in 1869, the 1870- 1890 period saw the complete professionalization of baseball, including
formation of the National Association of Professional baseball players in 1871. The National League of Professional Baseball Clubs was
formed in 1876, run by business-minded invertors in joint-stock company clubs. The 1880s has been called Major League Baseball’s “Golden
Age”. Profits soared, player’s salaries rose somewhat, a season of 84 games became one of 132, a weekly periodical “ The sporting News”
came into being, wooden stadiums with double-deck stands replaced open fields, and the standard refreshment became hot dogs, soda pop
and peanuts. In 1900 the Western League based in the growing cities of the Mid-west proclaimed itself the American League.
