With the improvement of people's living standards and the increase in consumption level, the garbage problem in China becomes increasingly urgent. Many cities are surrounded by garbage.
Confronted with the growing garbage output and deteriorating environment, the Chinese government is implementing the policy of garbage classification with great effort.
Garbage classification means dividing garbage into recyclable and unrecyclable, and requires people to put garbage into different trash cans so that it can become new resources through different ways of cleaning, transporting and recycling.
It can reduce not only the amount of garbage that needs to be disposed of, but also the deposing cost and the usage of the land, benefiting our society, economy, and environment.
1. 第二句中的“面对日益增长的垃圾产量和环境状况的恶化”，其逻辑主语是后面的“中国政府”，故此处可采用过去分词短语作状语，置于句首，译成confronted with the growing garbage output and deteriorating environment。
“要求人们…”用require sb.to do结构。“通过……方式使之变成新的资源”可看作是“人们将垃圾投放至不同的垃圾桶”的结果，可用so that连接，加强句子逻辑。
3.最后一句的主干可理解为“它可以减少…，降低…，减少…”，三个谓语动词都可用reduce来翻译，因此可共一个动词，后接不同的宾语，用not only...but also...连接。“对社会、经济、生态三方面都有益”则可处理成现在分词短语benefiting...,表结果。

The Imperial Palace, also called the Forbidden City was the palace where the 24 emperors of the Ming and Qing Dynasties ruled China for roughly 500 years. The Imperial Palace is located in the center of Beijing, on the northern side of Tian’anmen Square, rectangular in shape, 960 meters from north to south and 750 meters wide from east to west, with an area of 72 hectares and a total floor space of 150 000 square meters. It’s the world’s largest and most integral palace made of wood in existence. The Forbidden City is divided into two parts: the outer court and the inner court. The outer court was the place where the emperors gave audience and handled state affairs, while the inner court was the living quarters for the emperors and their families. In 1987 the Imperial Palace was listed by the UNESCO as one of the World Cultural Heritage sites.

4.“皇帝一人掌握…国家和人民的命运”一句偏长，可拆译成两个句子。后半句“决定着国家和人民的命运”翻译时增译主语“皇帝一人”，虽然原文说的是“一个人”，但由于历朝历代都有很多皇帝，因此要处理成复数：theywere the only ones，后面再加who引导的定语从句。
China is expected to launch a commercial operation of 5G (5th generation) mobile networks in 2020, and to realize a large-scale application in 2022 or 2023, an expert with the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) of China said here in a recent interview with Xinhua.
Wang Zhiqin, an expert with the China Academy of Telecommunication Research of MIIT, said China started 5G research and development as early as other countries. In 2013, the Chinese government established IMT-2020 (5G) Promotion Group, to boost systematic promotion of 5G.
As one of the leaders of the group, Wang said MIIT coordinated to conduct the worldwide biggest experiment of 5G technology research and development in January this year, and completed the phase 1 test in September.
"China is willing to formulate a unified global 5G standard with other countries," She said, adding that the global research on 5G standard started in March, and it is estimated that the first version will be completed in June, 2018.
"We started early and have accumulated a lot of experience," Wang said. "I hope China can be one of the ’dominant players’ in standard formulation."
She explained that telecommunication is a globalized and huge industry, and customers are looking forward to a unified standard, "we need to be more responsible and cooperate with the international mainstream enterprises."
She said 5G is designed for Internet of Everything (IoE), and 4G offers mobile Internet to people. As the increasing need for low delay and high reliability, 4G faces big challenges.
"Time delay of 4G is from 10ms to 20ms, but some application scenarios with low delay and high reliability requires less than 0.5ms," Wang said, "and 5G can do that."
She took automatic drive as example - "to realize automatic drive, vehicles should be connected with each other and have the ability to avoid crashes in high speed, which needs a very low time delay."
China has attached great importance to 5G in the 13th national Five-Year Plan (2016-2020) and has set the goal of 5G commercialization by 2020.
