Key:
1. D。本文主要讨论了媒体有关名人生活的过度报道对于英国青少年选择偶像方面的影响,行文中作者只是指出现象,并无指责媒体之意,所以B不对,答案为D
2. C。由第一段的“Yet according to parents and educationalists the media itself is partly to blame. They argue that television, newspapers and magazines are obsessed with celebrity lives and over-promote a “celebrity culture” in which reality show stars are revered purely because they are on television.”可知父母们认为,媒体过度关心与宣传名人的生活,这从某种意义上导致青少年模仿一些不好的偶像,故C为正确答案。
3. D。由第二段的第一句“the negative effects of unsuitable role models”以及“They are taught to value physical appearance over personal achievement and set themselves impossible goals.”可知,不好的偶像的负面影响之一就是让青少年过度关心外表,而不注重发展个人本领,反过来,可知心理学家认为青少年应该更重视发展个人本领,而不是关心自己的外表,所以D为正确答案。
4. B。由最后一段的“teenagers see their parents and siblings as far more positive role models than celebrities”可知B为正确答案。由第一段可知媒体迷恋报道明星生活是父母和教育家们的看法,故A不对;由第三段可知青少年对于媒体报道有自己的辨别力与见解,所以C不对;D项文中没有提及。

Key:
1. C。本文首先提出一种现象并指出了这一现象背后的原因:giving good directions is a particularly difficult task;然后通过举例说明“知识的诅咒”这一现象,最后告诉读者如何给出好的指示,以及这样做的意义所在,由此可以推知本题最佳答案为C。
问题:从全文尤其是头尾都可以看出来,文章主要讲的是如何正确地给人指路。
2. D。在第三段中,作者举例说假如你和朋友谈论最新型的喷气机,用的都是你自己熟悉的行话或专业术语,而没有意识到你的朋友对军事并不了解因此没法听懂你说的话。可见,如果对方某方面的知识不够,跟他们用相关的行话或专业术语沟通是有障碍的。

1. A。从第三段可以得此答案。Gratitude的意思是“感谢”。

3. B。从第五段的“I decided I’d just leave her be - a relationship takes two to work”可以得此答案。
4. A。从倒数第二段的“She took the plate and then we talked a bit…”可以得此答案,make peace with sb的意思是“与某人重归于好”。B、C文章没有提到。最后一段里作者说自己高兴地跳起舞来,因为觉得自己在不确定是否能得到友善回应的情况下仍然主动示好,所以D与此不符。
