(J) There would be second hand i-Pad stores instead of second hand books stores.

 

 

答案解析---關鍵句

ANS: A, B, D, F

A: Students could potentially save a lot of money by using the i-Pad as most students spend thousand of dollars on their printed textbooks.

B: In this semester, instead of logging around and piles of textbooks, some students are simply carrying one device.

D: Another lesson learned is a green one. Using i-Pads and other tablets could significantly reduce a school’s paper use.

F: And so far, both students and teachers give the i-Pad a high mark. “These additional audio and visual connectivity that I think they are (students) gonna remember more. Time will tell, but I think they will” said Catherine Giunta, professor of Seton Hill.
