答案:CADCA 参考译文: 几乎每个家庭每天都会买至少一份报纸。一些人甚至订阅2或3份不同的报纸。那么,为什么人们要读报纸呢? 五百年前,重大事件的消息——战争的失败和胜利,国王或统治者被推翻或谋杀——要花几个月甚至数年的时间从一个国家传到另一个国家。这些口头传播的消息往往不准确。现如今,我们可以在报纸上得知当天发生在很远的国家的重大事件。 除了提供世界各地的新闻之外,报纸还给我们提供了许多其他有用的信息。比如天气预报,广播电视电影的预告,书评,小说,当然还有广告。那些较大的广告是大公司为了让他们的产品引人注意。虽然他们为了这些广告位付给报纸的经营者几千美元,但是这个钱还是花的值得的,由于广告的作用他们的产品进入了千家万户。对于经营报纸的人,广告也很重要。广告的收入让他们可以以很低的价格出售报纸仍然获利。
