The outdoor market was a wonderful adventure for a small child, ___7___ was like a festival — full of colors and ___8___. There are red tomatoes, yellow lemons, green lettuce, peppers, grapes, onions. The farmers did their own ___9___. They all shouted loudly for ___10___ to

【答案与解析】 1. C。take 意为“拿走、带去”;carry 意为“携带、搬运”;fetch 意为“去取来”。 前面三词与句意不符。而 bring“带来、拿来”,表示农民把他们生产的水果和蔬 菜带到城市里来。 2. B。close 意为“关、封闭”。此句表示:这些农民封闭一条街,不许车辆通行, 作为交易市场。 3. A。produce 意为“农产品(尤指水果、蔬菜等)”。 4. D。shop 意为“买东西”。 5. B。immediately 意为“立即、直接地”。此句表示:农民收获后立即就把农产 品拿到市场去卖,因此他们的东西比杂货店的要新鲜。 6. C。freshest 意为“最新鲜的”。与上句中的 fresher 对应,一大早的水果、蔬 菜是最新鲜的。 7. C。which 引导非限制性定语从句,修饰前面的名词 the outdoor market, 说明露天市场像节日一样。 8. C。 sound 可指任何可以听到的“声音”。 与下文的叫卖声、讨价还价声相一致。 9. D。advertising 意为“广告(总称)”。由上句可知:这些农民高声叫喊是为他们 的产品做广告。 10. A。customer 意为“顾客”。农民高声叫卖是为了招徕顾客买他们的产品。 11. D。make 意为“使”。句意为:这些橘子果汁丰富、味道好、富含维生素, 能使你们的孩子健康强壮 12. A。argue 意为“争吵”。买东西的人常常为了降低价格而与农民讨价还价,发 生争吵是常有的事。 13. B。price 意为“价格”,后面也提到价格问题。 14. C。actor 意为“演员”。作者把市场交易比作一场戏,那么所有的买东西的人

和卖东西的人都是演员。因为他们都充当这曲戏中的一个角色。 15. D。expert 意为“专家、能手”。指作者的母亲是买东西的能手,会挑选东西, 会讨价还价。 16. D。expensive 意为“价高的、昂贵的”。在讨价还价中,买东西的人总是会 说“价格太高、太贵”之类的话。 17. B。hurt 意为“使痛心”。hurt 可指肉体或精神上的伤害。这里指买东西的出 价太低而痛心,不指肉体的伤害或损伤,因而其他动词不宜用。 18. C。honest 意为“诚实的、老实的”。意即:老实人要的是老实价,与后面的 these are the cheapest tomatoes on the market 相一致。 19. D。agree on sth 表示经过讨论或协商后达成一致,这里表示经过一番讨价 还价之后,最终把价格确定下来。 20. C。satisfied 意为“满意的”。只有当价格在买卖双方都认为合理时,交易才 能实现,这时买卖双方才感到满意。 As she waited at the edge of the ice for her music to start, Peggy took a quick look at her father standing nearby with a group of parents and teachers.

My next plan would have to be more ___7___. “Look at this, Dad, the truck with controller and battery pack—all for only US$250!” You can’t ___8___ to miss out on this bargain!” His ___9___ was that he certainly could afford to miss this ___10___ and for US$250 you could buy ___11___ educational like a telescope. “A telescope? To look at the moon? I’ll look at it when I’m 97 years old and living in a ___12___ home! This is my youth! I am supposed to run about.” I went to my room, ___13___ at how mean(吝啬的) my father was. It was obvious that he didn’t ___14___ that I would die if I did not get the Pumpkin radio-controlled truck. When I ___15___ on Christmas morning I wasn’t excited. I had been ___16___. I opened all my presents until there was just one big package ___17___. “The telescope,” I thought. I ___18___ the packaging and looked at the top of the box—it was a Pumpkin truck. I had ___19___!

【答案与解析】 1. B。根据下文的提示词“driver”可知是出租车。 2. C。结合上下文的情景知道是在柯南道尔说话之前。 3. A。从上下文知道这位司机是在问柯南道尔,把他送到哪儿去。 4. D。根据下文司机的答语,可知他们以前并没有见过面,所以柯南道尔听见司 机喊出了自己的名字时,应该感到吃惊。 5. B。结合前面的“No”,可知答案是 never。 6. C。从下文的描述可知司机在作解释。 7. C。从下文的“you have been on vacation”可知答案。 8. A。因为是在度假,所以这位司机从他皮肤的颜色上进行判断。 9. D。从后面的提示词“writer”可知这里指手指上的墨水点。 10. D。此处表示综合以上各个信息。 11. A。这里表示司机根据以上各个信息,推断出他是柯南道尔。 12. B。听了这位司机的分析之后,柯南道尔兴奋地叫出来。 13. C。从后面的同位语 Sherlock Holmes 可知应该是他写的小说中的人物,所 以选 fictional。 14. D。结合上下文,这里表示最后这位司机又指出柯南道尔的名字就在他的皮 箱上。 15. A。联系上文可知此处指这位司机。 16. B。根据下文中 A life lived to the full is lived …可知。 17. D。根据后面的“from moment to moment”可知应选 D。 18. C。此处表示生活是一个时刻接一个时刻,而不是由一个个重要事件组成的。 19. B。结合上文的“milestones”可知在生活中不应该只注意那些重要的时刻。 major 表示“重要的;主要的”。 20.

【答案与解析】 1. A。前面说“我得到了渴望已久的电动车”,而这里 but 转折,表示的是“你很难 相信为了得到这个神圣的礼物我所经受的痛苦和付出的努力”。 2. C。从上下文来看,“我”很早就关注着车,并通过看介绍有关车的杂志来了解 信息。 3. A。根据上下文可知,此处说的是“我”终于下定决心买辆电动车。 make up one’s mind 为固定短语,意为“下决心”。 4. B。前面说“下决心买电动车”,此处说的是作出决定后就立即开始行动了。set to work 意为“开始行动起来”,下文具体写了所做的工作。 5. D。此处说的是“我”展开的第一项工作,那就是告诉爸爸说“我的那辆旧车的操 纵杆失灵了”。Work 是动词,意为“工作,有效”,在这里说的是“操纵杆不灵了”。 6. B。从上下文来看,“我”的第一次工作没有成效,反而被爸爸指责为“我”不会 操作。bad driving 意为“不会操作,错误操作”。
- 46 -

7. D。前面“我”是找了旧车操纵杆失灵这样一个借口,从后面的内容特别是引号 内的话语可以看出,“我”的下一个计划就更明确、直白了。 8. A 。这是 “ 我 ” 力劝爸爸买电动车的话。从 …with controller and battery pack—all for only US$250 及后面的 …miss out on this bargain 等可推 测,此处应选用 afford。can / be able to afford… 是常见搭配,意为“省出或 找到足够的时间或金钱去(做某事);……得起”。 9. D。从 …and for US$250 you could buy… 等来看,爸爸的反应确实是不 想买电动车。 10. D。根据上文的 You couldn’t ___ to miss out on this bargain 等可推测 此处应填 bargain。 11. B。这里说的是爸爸的观点。与其买电动车,倒不如买一架像望远镜一样具 有教育意义的东西。something like 意为“像……样的东西”。 12 C 从 when I’m 97 years old 及后面的 This is my youth 等来推测,此 处说的是“要看月亮,那就等到 97 岁时住在养老院里看好了”。这是作者对爸爸 提议买望远镜的一句气话。 13. D。从前面多次提到买车被爸爸拒绝,后面又有 …how mean my father was 及后面的 …he didn’t ___14___ that I would die… 等来推测,此处说的 是“我”对爸爸的吝啬很“恼怒”。 14. C。 前面说“我”很恼怒, 再结合后面的 …that I would die if I did not get the Pumpkin radio-controlled truck 等推测,“我”觉得爸爸才不“在乎”呢! 15. B。根据 on Christmas morning,可知讲的是“我”在圣诞节的早晨醒来后 查看礼物时发生的故事。 16. D。按照常例,西方儿童在圣诞节早晨收到礼物是激动和兴奋的,可此刻“我” 却兴奋不起来,因为“我”要车的幻想破灭了。此处用 defeat 正好符合“我”当时的 心理。 17. C。从前面的 I opened all my presents until there was just one big package… 等可推测,此处说的是“直到还剩下最后一个包裹”。 18. D。从上下文来看,此时只剩下这最后一个包裹,于是“我”就打开包装,这 与后面的看到里面的东西相符合。 19. A。与上面的 I had been defeated 相对,此处描写的是当我得到盼望已久

的车时高兴的心情,“我”终于“赢”了。 20. D。前面一直在责怪爸爸不给“我”买车,当得到车后,“我”高兴得觉得能做任 何事情,后面进一步说“我甚至能在英语课上得 A+” On Thursday afternoon Mrs Clake locked the door and went to the women’s club as usual. It was a pleasant way of ___1___ time for an old woman who lived ___2___. When she came home she ___3___ something unusual. Had someone got in? The back door and the windows were all locked and there was no ___4___ of forced entry(进入). Had anything been taken? She went from room to room, ___5___, and found her camera and spare watch missing. The following Thursday she went out at her ___6___ time, but didn’t go to the club. Instead, she took a short walk in a park ___7___ and came home, letting herself in through the ___8___ door. She settled down to wait and see what would happen. It was 4 o’clock when the front doorbell rang. Mrs Clarke was ___9___ tea at the time. The bell rang again, and the next moment she ___10___ her letter-box being pushed open. Picking up the kettle of boiling water, she moved ___11___ towards the letter-box. A piece of ___12___ appeared through the letter-box, and then a hand. The wire turned and caught around the knob(原形旋钮) on the door-lock. Mrs Clarke ___13___ the kettle and poured the water over the hand. A ___14___ cry was heard outside as the wire ___15___ to the floor and the hand was pulled ___16___, which was followed by the sound of ___17___ feet. It wasn’t long ___18___the police caught the thief. And Mrs Clarke was greatly ___19___ at the club for her successful ___20___. 1. A. saving B. passing C. stealing D. finding 2. A. lonely B. alone C. sadly D. easily 3. A. learned B. found C. sensed D. hoped 4. A. sight B. exhibition C. note D. sign

A. self-satisfaction B. self-protection C. self-respect D. self-service 【答案与解析】 本文讲述的是 Mrs Clarke 在发现家中有被盗后采取措施, 靠智慧保护了自家财 产,同时用开水惩治小偷,并帮助警察捉到了小偷的故事。 1. B。从上下文来看,此处说的是 Mrs Clake 每到星期四下午都去女子俱乐部 来消磨时光/打发时间。 2. B。从语境可知,Mrs Clake 是独自一人住,当她外出时只好锁门。lonely 意 为“孤独的,孤单的”,alone 意为“独自一人的”。 3. C。从后面的几个问句来看,她对是否出现了问题还没有把握,故这只是她回 到家时的一种“感觉”,觉得有点“反常”,但不能说是 learn(得知),find(发现), 更不能是 hope(希望)。sense 在此为动词,意为“觉察到,感觉到”。

4. D。从 The back door and the windows were all locked 及下文来看,此 处应用 sign,即没有人强行进入的迹象 / 痕迹(sign)。 5. D。从 Had anything been taken 来看,她仍不知道是否丢失了东西,由此 可推测此时只能是 “核实”一下是否有丢失的东西,而不是注视着 (watch),搜查 (search)或看(look)。 6. C。由第 1 段第 1 句话知她每逢星期四下午就到女子俱乐部去,由此可推测 在下星期四她又像往常一样出门了。at her usual time 指在往常的时间,与往 常一样。 7. C。由语境可推测,这家公园应离她家很近,否则她不会那么快就赶回家等着 捉贼。她没去 club,且代之以 a short walk in a park 等来看,这是她设下圈 套准备捉贼。 8. B。为防止被贼看到,Mrs Clake 从后门偷偷地进了家门。前面已提到她已 把门锁上了,故排除 open。 9. B。 从下文的 Mrs Clarke raised the kettle and poured the water over the hand 来看,此处说的是她正在沏茶(make tea),并非是喝茶(drink tea)或倒茶 (pour tea)或种茶(plant tea)。 10. C 。从上下文来看,贼在外面, Mrs Clarke 在里面,只能是听到外面 letter-box 被打开,而 see, watch, smell 都不合此时捉贼的情景。 11. A。为不让贼发现家里有人,Mrs Clarke 应是悄悄地向 letter-box 走去才 合乎情景。 12. D。 从后面的 A sharp cry was heard outside as the wire fell to the floor 来看,此处说的是盗贼用铁丝作工具来行窃。 13. C。前面说当出现动静时她正在沏茶,此处说的是她举起沏茶用的热水壶, 然后把水浇在伸进来的那只手上。 14. C。她举起热水壶把开水浇在那只手上,由此可想象那人应是痛得尖叫起来, 即 a sharp cry。 15. D。由一声尖叫可推测,那只手被烫着了,由此可判断此处说的是铁丝掉到 了地上。fall to the floor 意为“掉到地上”。 16. C。前面说铁丝掉在了地上,可以想象刚伸进来的那只手应该是本能地缩回 去,故用 back。pull back 意为“缩回去”。
- 48 -

17. C。这是盗贼被冷不防遭到袭击后的反应:先是铁丝掉到了地上,接着把手 缩回去,然后就逃跑了,故此处说的是她听到了逃跑的脚步声。 18. C。It wasn’t long before… 是常用句型,意为“不久就……”。这里说的是 不久警察就把小偷捉到了。 19. A。Mrs Clarke 凭借智慧捉到了小偷,自然在女子俱乐部受人羡慕/受到了 赞扬。Admire 有“夸奖,赞扬”的意思。 20. B。结合全文,可知她这种做法是“自我保护”,故用 self-protection。 When sailors are allowed ashore after a long time at sea, they sometimes get drunk and cause trouble. For this reason, the navy ___1___ has its police in big ports. Whenever sailors cause trouble, the police come and ___2___ them. One day, the police in a big seaport received a telephone call ___3___ a bar in the town. The barman said that a big sailor had got drunk and ___4___ the furniture in the bar.

A。Why don’t you do sth? 为表示建议的固定句型,意为“为何不…?” 15. B。根据上文可知,此处强调要对付的是“喝醉的”水手。 16. D。 “十分正确”常表达为 quite right, 而副词 very, too 一般不可修饰 right。 all right 用作表语时,意为“身体好”,不符句意。 17. C。why 引导表语从句,强调原因 18. B。/ 19.

But just as I am about to do so I find the article on the ___1___ side is as much interesting. It may be a discussion of the way to ___2___ in good health, or a ___3___ about how to behave and conduct oneself in society. If I cut the front article, the opposite one is likely to ___4___ damage, leaving out half of it or keeping the text ___5___ the title. Therefore, the scissors would ___6___ before they start, ___7___ halfway done when I find out the ___8___ result. Sometimes two things are to be done at the same time, both worth you

___9___. You can only take up one of them, the other has to wait or be ___10___ up.

【答案与解析】 1. D。 一张报纸只有正反两面, 想剪一面的文章又担心影响另一面的有用的内容, 故选 opposite。 2. B。keep in good health 意为“保持健康”。 3. D。首先排除 C( theory), 因为 how to behave and conduct oneself in society 不能称为理论。 advice, news 是不可数名词,不能与前面的不定冠词 a 连用,因此只能选 report。 4. C。/ 5. A。在剪报纸时,通过留一半文章或让文章连着标题,可以防止另一 面的文章受损。 6.

The instructor asked us to list ___1___ in our past that we felt ___2___ of, regretted, or incomplete about and read our lists aloud. This seemed like a very ___3___ process, but there’ s always some ___4___soul in the crowd who will volunteer. The instructor then ___5___ that we find ways to ___6___ people, or take some action to right any wrong doings. I was seriously wondering how this could ever ___7___ my communication. Then the man next to me raised his hand and volunteered this story: “Making my ___8___, I remembered an incident from high school. I grew up in a small town. There was a Sheriff ___9___ of us kids liked. One night, my two buddies and I decided to play a ___10___ on him. After drinking a few beers, we climbed the tall water tank in the middle of the town, and wrote on the tank in bright red paint: Sheriff Brown is a sob( 畜 生 ). The next day, almost the whole town saw our glorious ___11___. Within two hours, Sheriff Brown had us in his office. My friends told the truth but I lied. No one ___12___ found out.” “Nearly 20 years later, Sheriff Brown’s name ___13___ on my list. I didn’t even know if he was still ___14___. Last weekend, I dialed the information in my hometown and found there was a Roger Brown still listed. I tried his number. After a few ___15___, I heard, “Hello?” I said, “Sheriff Brown?” Paused. “Yes.” “Well, this is Jimmy Calkins.” “And I want you to know that I did it?”Paused. “I knew it!” he yelled back. We had a good laugh and a ___16___ discussion. His closing words were: “Jimmy, I always felt bad for you ___17___ your buddies got it off

their chest, but you were carrying it ___18___ all these years. I want to thank you for calling me...for your sake.” Jimmy inspired me to ___19___ all 101 items on my list within two years, and I always remember what I learned from the course: It’s never too late to ___20___the past wrongdoings. 1.

【答案与解析】 1. B。根据下文可知句意为:教员要求我们把我们过去的任何事情(anything)都 列成表,这些事情是我们感到羞愧(ashamed)、后悔或未完成的, 然后大声读出。 若填 something 只表示一些事情,与句意不符。 2. A。 ashamed 意为“羞愧的”, 根据后面列举的几项, 不应该是“害怕的(afraid)” 的事情。 3. A。private 意为“私人的、保密的、不让人知道的”。上述事情都属于个人隐 私,不宜公开。 4. D。brave 意为“勇敢的”,尽管是隐私不宜公开,但在自愿者中也有勇敢的人。 5. B。suggested 意为“建议”,句子谓语用的动词原形,是虚拟语气,可先排除 expected;从说话者语气看,不是“命令”,所以可排除 ordered 和 demanded。 6. C。这里教员建议要做以下几件事情:to make apologize to people“向人们 道谦”,(to) take some actions right any wrong doings“采取措施纠正错误的 所作所为”。 7. A。本来作者是参加一个交际培训班,而现在教员所要学员做的一切似乎与培 养交际能力无关,所以作者很纳闷这是否能提高(improve)他的交际能力。 8. B。make a list 意为“列表、造表”。 9. C。 none of us kids liked 是定语从句, 前面省略了关系代词 whom / that(代 替 Sheriff), 选 none 表示 Jimmy(由短文最后可知此人是 Jimmy)和他的少年伙 伴都不喜欢那位郡长(Sheriff),与下文吻合。 10. C。play a trick on sb 意为“捉弄某人”。 11. B。sign 意为“记号、标记、符号”,指 Jimmy 他们写的字。 12. D。ever 用于否定句表示“在任何时候、从来”,由于 Jimmy 说了谎话,所 以“从来就没人查明事实真相(found out)”。与下文“几乎 20 年后再提及此事”相 呼应。 13. A。appear 意为“出现”,指 Sheriff Brown 的名字被列在表上。 14. D。alive 意为“活着的”,此时 Jimmy 还不知道 Sheriff Brown 是否活着, 与后面他们接通电话,证实了 Sheriff Brown 还活着。所以此处不宜用其他形容 词。
- 52 -

15. B。ring 意为“铃声”,这里指电话被拨通。 16. D。由 we had a good laugh 可知 Sheriff 和 Jimmy 进行的是热烈的 (lively)讨论。所以不宜选其他形容词。 17. D。后面的句子说明原因,故选 because 引导原因状语从句:因为你的伙 伴都把他们做的错事给忘了。 18. A。around 意为“大约”,此句表示:而 Jimmy 却这些(nearly20 年)年来 一直把他所做过的错事记在心头。 19. C。clear up 意为“消除、解除”,此句意为:在两年里 Jimmy 鼓励了我消 除在我的表上的所有 101 项(做错了事情)。 20. C。 right 意为“纠正”,此句意为:纠正过去的不道德行为还为时不晚 There are about fifteen hundred languages in the world.But ___1___ a few of them are very ___2___. English is one of these. Many, many people use it, not only in England and the U. S. A, but in other parts of the world. About 200, 000, 000 speak it as their own language. It is difficult to say how many people are learning it as a ___3___ language. Many millions are ___4___ to do so. Is it easy or difficult to learn English? Different people may have different ___5___. Have you ever ___6___ the ads of this kind in the newspapers or magazines? “Learn English in six month, or your ___7___ back ...” “Easy and funny? Our records and tapes ___8___ you master your English in a month. ___9___ the first day your ___10___ will be excellent. Just send ...” Of course, it never ___11___ quite like this. The only language that seems easy to learn is the mother tongue. We should ___12___ that we all learned our own language well when we were ___13___.
