1. A。根据下文60年代矛盾冲突(指白人对黑人的种族歧视),下文提到了一个白人青年帮她,因此可判断老太太是“黑人”。

2. B。从第15空前的 freeway 一词可以得出此题答案。

3. C。从下文 she decided to flag down the next car 说明她的车“抛锚”了。

4. B。因为车抛锚了,所以她“非常”需要搭车,只有 badly 符合此意。

5. D。从下文 in his car 得出答案。

6. D。因为是年轻人,对60年代美国种族歧视没有听说过,才伸出援助之手。hear of是“听说”的意思。

7. D。take sb. to some place意为“把某人带到某地”是固定短语。

8. A。因为是出租车,所以要“租赁(雇)”。

9. C。从下文看,她是去看他快要死了的丈夫,所以很“匆忙”。

10. A。从下文可知老太太为了感谢那位白人青年,买了一台电视机给他送去,所以记下的是“地址”,而不是电话号码。

11. B。从老太太留的纸条可知她没有亲自去,因此可以判断是直接让“售货员”把电视机送去的。

12. A。因为他没有买电视机,看到一个售货员送来一台电视机,所以感到“惊奇”。

13. C。因为是纸条,所以判断是“贴”(stick)在电视机上。

14. B。根据第一空已经得出答案是一位黑人妇女,因此选 dark。

15. B。从上下文的时间判断,是“几天前的一个夜晚”。

16. B。因为后面是形容词 wet 使浑身都湿了用 make,turn也可以跟形容词,是表示变化,不符句意。

17. B。not only…but(also) 是固定搭配。

18. D。从上文可以得知,当老太太的车子抛锚时,那个白人青年及时地出现在她跟前,并给予了帮助。

19. A。根据下文表示“能”使她及时赶到她快要死了的丈夫跟前(be able to do sth表示通过努力才能实现的动作),其余不符句意。

20. B。因为老太太得到了青年的帮助,才使她在她丈夫死之前赶到。


1. B。介词in表示在某一方面。

2. B。/

3. D。预阅全文可知学生须经过三大考试:进初中时(eleven-plus),15岁时和18岁时。

4. A。eleven-plus exams是指英国私立学校十一岁进入初中的学生举行的考试。既然是eleven-plus 那么正常年龄应是11岁或11岁多一点,所以确定somewhat。

5. C。/

6. B。eleven-plus exam中表现出来的能力会决定一个孩子是否留在学校继续深造。

7. D。从上文at one time:曾经一度时期,however表示转折,说明与现在的情形不一样。

8. C.从下文可知考试覆盖面广,number不宜用wide修饰。

9. A。首先排除B和C(不符题意),而 admit 形式不对。

10. C。or前后连接的应是并列成分,应接与two-thirds相比具有更多或更少含义的词。

11. A。/

12. C。学生通过考试后,被允许选修任意学科。

13. D。at all costs:不惜一切代价,at the same time:同时,at the least:至少,起码。均不符题意,不能选择。at great length:最大限度(只要有能力,不受限制)。

14. D。根据上下文,这是最后一场考试即第三次考试。

15. B。排除A. C,不符题意。18岁时的考试只考选修的所有课程内容。

16. D. 表示处所用at。

17. A。/

18. A。从上一句students study only in their concentrated area, 可知几乎没有学生敢冒险学习选修以外的课程。

19. C。/

20. B。in any case: 在任何情况下, in all:总共,in the end :最后.根据上下文均不符题意。in a sense 从某种意义上来讲,因为从15岁就开始选修,所以英国的孩子从15岁起就可以说是专业人才。
