End of car culture? (P2)
1. B。结合全文以及第一段的第二句话可知,本文主要讲的是美国的年轻人减少开车出行的趋势,并分析了出现这一趋势的可能原因,所以答案为B
2. B。第二段的数据是进一步用事实说明第一段的第二句话提到的现象“this is becoming less and less the case”,所以答案为B
3. C。第四段Michael Sivak提到了年轻人减少开车出行的原因有:开车的经济压力、更多的年轻人向大城市迁移,而大城市里交通工具选择多,第五段提到的互联网的普及也使得年轻人开车更少,所以C项为正确答案。
4. D。由第六段“In countries where “more people use the Internet, there is a lower proportion of drivers”可推知D项正确。文中只是说年轻人开车更少,但这并不表明汽车不再流行,所以A不对;文中提到了美国、欧洲一些国家年轻人比以往开车要少,Bin developing countries不对;倒数第二段提到了汽车生产商在亚洲开拓市场,因为欧洲一些国家年轻人减少了开车,但是并没有对比欧亚市场的潜力大小,所以C项不对。
 
Will’s world: beer and butts (P4)
1. D。文章的前三段中,作者先具体描述了一个有喜剧色彩的场景,然后强调说这不是最新的喜剧演出,而是莎士比亚的作品。然后纠正了大部分人对莎士比亚作品的误解,其实他的戏剧也有激动和喜感温情的一面。因此第一段的目的就在于此:展示莎士比亚的作品并不像人们想象的那样,D正确。
2. C。由第五段的“A Midsummer Night’s Dream is like a teen romantic comedy”和第七段的“This rewrites plays like Romeo and Juliet as newspaper headlines (‘Double teen death horror!’)”可以得此答案。AB文章中没有提到。D的前半部分正确,后半部分文章里没有体现。
3. D。倒数第二段的“…but don’t worry if you don’t understand every word. Focus on enjoying the bits you do understand”说明,欣赏莎士比亚的作品时,不用每个单词都理解,知道大意和欣赏你理解的部分就好。ABC文中都没有提到。
 
Quake makes no waves (P5)
1. B。由第一、二、三段可知人们原本担心地震过后,会像2004年的地震一样有海啸袭来,但结果没有海啸,最大的波浪也就80厘米高,所以答案为B。由倒数第二段“The recent earthquake was the largest strike-slip earthquake ever recorded”可知A项不对。
2. C。由第四段的“This time, however, two parts of the sea floor slid past one another.”可以答案为C。
3. A。由第六段的“The Earth’s crust in this area is very weak and 90 percent of the world’s earthquakes occur here, according to the BBC. Ninety percent of the world’s 1,500 active volcanoes are also located here.”可知A正确。由第四段最后一句话“This meant that no giant waves were created.”可知走滑型地震不会产生巨大的波浪,所以B不对;由第四段可知最近的地震是走滑型地震,而日本的与这次的不一样,所以C不对;D项文中没有提及。
4. B。由最后一段最后一句话“Aftershocks can continue for weeks and months after the main shock, sometimes even years.”可知“a long period of aftershocks”以偏概全;由倒数第二段的“Scientists are worried it could lead to more powerful earthquakes.”可知B正确;由最后一段的“After an earthquake occurs along a fault, stress is released in parts”可知C不对;由最后一段的“This means that they are now more likely to become unstable.”可知当压力被重新分布后,余震的可能性增加,所以D不对。
 
Not a guys’ film (P6)
1. B。在第一段中,作者不停地重复“足球,牛羊肉,电动工具”这三个很男性化的词,目的就是不让自己想起前一天晚上他们看了部女性电影。由此推断,作者开始的时候对女性电影是排斥的态度。
2. D。由第二到第五段可知,为了维护他们的男子汉形象,他们虽然最终决定不告诉别人他们看了那部电影,但三个人中,Alex本来是想告诉别人的,Key是态度最坚决要维护这个决定的,作者支持Key的观点,所以A、B不对,D正确。第二段的“If anyone asks, we put it on for two minutes, realized how girly it was, and watched Fight Club instead.”说明,他们其实并没有看Fight Club这部电影,只是统一口径要对外这么说,C不对
3. A。倒数第三段的“Then the worst happened –one big mistake that we had overlooked: the person who had lent us the movie”说明,最糟糕的事就是最终别人知道了他们看了那部电影,从而觉得他们女气。
4. A。最后一段Christopher说她也爱看这部电影,说明女孩们并没有嘲笑他们,反而觉得跟他们有共鸣。所以作者的害怕担心完全是毫无根据的。倒数第二段的“The three of us denied everything.”说明B不对。C、D文中没有提到。
