[中学题库]      来源:

Technology is the application (应用)of knowledge to production. Thanks to modern technology, we have been able to increase GREatly the efficiency of our work force. New machines and new methods have helped cut down time and expense while increasing overall output. This has meant more production and a higher standard of living.
