The Myth of the Paperless Office
0 The concept of a paperless office grew with the advance of technology. It was
00 widely been claimed that as email became commonplace, people would stop
34 writing memos, keeping bulky files and bringing piles of paper to the meetings.
35 But the reality has in fact been quite the reverse, and paper, having already
36 survived five thousand years of technological change, and has proved remarkably
37 resilient. Worldwide, the amount of paper used for each year continues to
38 rise up, although statistics now show a slight reduction in the amount
39 it consumed in the UK. So, has technology failed in its aim to end the use of
40 paper? Max Bray, a business lecturer, thinks office workers still distrust computers.
41 ‘Technology is unreliable in most of people's eyes,’ he says. 'If you are sent an
42 important email, you are likely to print it, because there is always the
43 fear that it might have get deleted.’ In contrast, Paul Blunt, a marketing
44 manager for desktop products, who says there has been significant progress in
45 automating a wide range of tasks, even though the transition between has been more of an evolution than a revolution.
《The Myth of the Paperless Office》，无纸化办公室神话。讲的是新技术对现代办公的影响。
36题，和上面的部分联系起来作为一个整体来考虑。paper, having already survived five thousand years of technological change, and has proved remarkably resilient.中间的部分是插入语，可以不考虑，所以完整的应该是paper has proved remarkably resilient。主谓宾非常齐全，and是多余的。resilient是适应力强的，有弹力的。
39题，the amount consumed in the UK，consumed也是后置定语，表示英国的消费总量。it多余。
41题，in most people’s eyes在大多数人的眼里，of多余。
43题，might have done表示可能已经做了某事，而这里的意思是指电子邮件等可能会被删除，不用have，去掉。
44题，Paul Blunt, a marketing manager for desktop products, who says there has been significant progress。中间的部分是插入成分，不予考虑。完整的是Paul Blunt who says there has been significant progress.主语是人，谓语是says，后面是宾语，成分齐全，who是多余的。
45题，the transition between has been more of an evolution than a revolution.依然是一个完整的句子，成分齐全，transition是主语，has been是谓语，between是多余的。
