1990 was a significant year in world events. In February, Nelson Mandela was set free after 27 years in prison. In October, East and West Germany became one country again. Then at the end of 1990, the World Wide Web was born. For this final event we have one man to thank, Tim BernersLee, the father of the Web.
BernersLee was born on June 8, 1955 in London, England. His parents, both computer designers, encouraged him to think and work creatively as he grew up. He was an excellent student and naturally took an interest in computers and science.
After graduating from Oxford University, Tim went to work at a science research centre in Switzerland. There he developed some of the different systems that would later become the Web. The first was HTML, the computer language used to make web pages. The second was an address system that let computers anywhere find each other and send and receive information. In 1990, while still at the science centre in Switzerland, he put them together to make the first Internet browser(浏览器). It could run on any computer and allowed people to create, then share their information with the rest of the world.
Tim knew that the more people used the Web, the more useful it would be. He wasn’t interested in money but know ledge, so he gave out his invention for free to anyone who was interested. Many were interested and the growth of the Internet began.
Today Tim works as a professor at the MIT in America, researching new and interesting ways to use the Web. He has received many awards from governments and organizations for students and workmates. It may also be one of the reasons that few people outside the world of technology know his name.(2010广州)

B. He didn’t do well at school.
C. He is a very poor businessman.
D. He is wellknown all over the world.
( )4. Where does BernersLee live today?

语篇解读：本文为记叙文。主要介绍了World Wide Web之父Tim BernersLee的生平，Web的开发以及他的贡献和现状。
1. C。猜测词义题。第一段介绍发生在1990年的世界大事件：曼德拉坐牢27年后被释放；东西德统一；World Wide Web的诞生。由此我们不难推测，significant意为“重要的，重大的”。故选C。
2. B。推理判断题。根据第三段“...an address system that let computers anywhere find each other and send amd receive information.”可知选项A不符；根据第四段第二句，Tim只对知识感兴趣而对金钱不感兴趣，因此他免费贡献出他发明的web browser，故选项C不正确；根据第一段第四句，我们知道web是在1990年诞生的，因此1990年以前，人们不可能使用web，故排除D。由第三段可知B为正确项。
3. A。细节理解题。由文中第二段“...encouraged him to think and work creatively...”可知A为正确项。
5. D。归纳概括题。通读全文可知这篇文章主要介绍World Wide Web之父Tim BernersLee。故选D。
