21.----Could I use this dictionary ?
----_____.It’s a spare one .
A. Good idea B. Just go ahead C. You’re welcome D. You’d better not
【举一反三】—May I open the window to let in some fresh air?
A. Come on B. Take care C. Go ahead! D. Hold on!
〖解析〗根据语境可以知道：去开吧, 去做吧。所以答案为：C。容易误选A。come on 的意思是“算了吧！加油！”
22. They chose Tom to be ___captain of the team because they knew he was __smart leader.
A. a; the B. the; the C. the; a D. a; a
【解析】本题第一空后面的名词captain队长后面有介词短语of the team修饰，表示特指，所以使用定冠词the表示特指。第二空后的可数名词leader前面有形容词smart修饰，用a修饰表示泛指。句义：他们选择Tom作为队长，因为他是一个聪明的领袖。故C正确。
【举一反三】It’s good feeling for people to admire the Shanghai World Expo that gives them pleasure.
A. 不填, a B. a, 不填 C. the, a D. a, the
〖解析〗good feeling并非特指, 故用a；pleasure是抽象名词, 无需冠词。句意为“人们喜欢上海世博会给它们的快乐, 这是（一）种不错的感觉” a good feeling , 一种不错的感觉, give sb pleasure。
23 Thanks for your directions to the house ; we wouldn’t have found it ___.
A. nowhere B. however C. otherwise D. instead
【解析】本题考察的是副词词义辨析。nowhere任何地方都不，无处；however然而；otherwise否则，要不然；instead代替，而不是；句义：多亏了你房子的说明，要不然，我们会找不到的。本句实际上是一个含蓄条件句的虚拟语气，表示的是与过去事实相反的虚拟语气，主句使用的“情态动词+have done”，otherwise=if there had not been your directions to the house。故C正确。
【举一反三】Student loan is supposed to provide financial support for people who would ________ not be able to go to college.
A. otherwise B. meanwhile C. therefore D. nevertheless
24.----Tony , why are your eyes red ?
---I __ up peppers for the last five minutes .

【举一反三】I would like a job which pays more, but I enjoy the work I’m doing at the moment.
A.in other words B.on the other hand
C.for one thing D.as a matter of fact
〖解析〗in other words换句话说；on the other hand另一方面；for one thing一则, 常与for another thing连用；as a matter of fact=in fact事实上。根据句意, B项正确。
26. When it comes to __ in public , no one can match him .
A. speak B. speaking C. being spoken D. be spoken
【解析】本题考察的是固定句式：When it comes to…当谈及/提及/涉及…；其中的to是介词，后面要接名词或者动名词做宾语。句义：当涉及到在公众场所发言，没有人比得上他。本句中动名词speaking作为介词to的宾语。故B正确。
27. Anyway , we’re here now ,so let’s ___some serious work.
A. come up with B. get down to C. do away with D. live up to
【解析】本题考察的是动词短语辨析。A想出，提出；B开始认真做某事，着手做某事；do away with废除，消灭；live up to符合，不辜负；句义：不关怎么样，我们现在这里了，让我们开始认真工作吧！B项get down to中的to是介词，后面要接名词或者动名词做宾语。故B正确。
【举一反三】I can the house being untidy, but I hate it if it’s not clean.
A. come up with B.put up with C. turn to D.stick to
【解析】句意为“房子里东西凌乱我能忍，但是脏我讨厌。”come up with想出, 提出；put up with 忍受, 容忍；turn to转向，翻书到，求助于，(使)变成；stick to坚持，紧跟，粘住，忠于。不整洁的;凌乱的
28. Among the many dangers_-- sailors have to face , probably the greatest of all is fog .
A. which B. what C. where D. when
【解析】本题定语从句的先行词是the many dangers，在定语从句中关系代词which指代先行词在句中作为动词face的宾语，可以省略。CD两项都是关系副词，在定语从句中通常只作状语，不能做宾语。What不是定语从句的关系词。句义：在士兵面对的很多危险中，也许最大的危险是雾吧！故A正确。
【举一反三】That evening, _____ I will tell you more about later, I ended up working very late.
A. that B. which C. what D. when
29. I don’t believe what you said , but if you can prove it , you may be able to __me .
A. convince B. inform C. guarantee D. refuse
30. Life is unpredictable ; even the poorest __become the richest .
A. shall B. must C. need D. might
【解析】本题考察的是情态动词辨析。Shall将要；must必须，一定；need需要；might也许；句义：生活是无法预测的，甚至最贫穷的人也许会成为最富有的人。根据前句：Life is unpredictable。说明一切都有可能，所以使用might表示存在的可能性。故D正确。
【试题延伸】情态动词是一种本身有一定的词义,表示说话人的情绪,态度或语气的动词,但不能单独作谓语, 只能和其他动词原形构成谓语。can (could) 表示说话人能,可以,同意,准许,以及客观条件许可；will, would用于疑问句表示说话人向对方提出请求或询问,用would 比will 更婉转,客气。Shall表示命令,警告,允诺,征求,劝告,建议惊奇。
31. ___nearly all our money , we couldn’t afford to stay at a hotel .
A. Having spent B. To spent C. Spent D. To have spent
【解析】本题考察的是分词做状语用法。动词spend与句子主语we构成逻辑上的主动关系，所以使用现在分词spending的形式，而本句中spend all our money是发生在谓语动词之前的，所以使用现在分词的完成式having spent。句义：几乎把所有的钱都花完了，我们没有钱住宾馆了。B项通常在句中做目的状语。CD项表示被动。故A正确。
【举一反三】________ many times, he still repeated the same mistake.
A. Having been told B. Having told C. Telling D. Told
试题分析：句意：他虽然被告诉过许多次但仍旧犯同样的错误。这里是非谓语动词做状语，having done在谓语动词之前发生表示主动。having been done在谓语动词之前发生表示被动。选A。
32. ---When shall I call , in the morning or afternoon?
----___. I’ll be in all day .
A. Any B. None C. Neither D. Either
【举一反三】They produced four reports, _______ of which contained any useful suggestions.
A. either B. all C. none D. neither
试题分析：考查代词：A. either两者中任何一个，B. all 三者以上都，C. none三者以上都不，D. neither两者都不，句意：他们做了四个报告，没有一个有有用的建议。由于是四份报告，排除AD，因为定语从句中用any，说明是否定句，用none，选C。
33. It is unbelievable that Mr. Lucas leads a simple life __his great wealth .
A. without B. despite C. in D. to
34.He is thought ___foolishly .Now he has no one but himself to blame for losing the job .
A. to act B. to have acted C. acting D. having acted
【解析】本句考察的是固定句式：Sb be though to…某人被认为…；如果表示的是一个已经完成的动作，就使用不定式的完成式，如果是正在进行的动作，就使用不定式的进行式。句义：他被认为表现很糟糕，现在他只能责怪自己丢了那份工作。根据句义可知他表现很糟糕是在丢掉工作之前，所以使用不定式的完成式。故B正确。
【举一反三】A ship loaded with expensive goods was reported ________ into the sea with its oil ________ .
A. to sink ; given out B. to have sunk ; run out
C. having sunk ; used up D. to have sunk ; run out of
试题分析：本题第一空是一个固定句式sth be reported to have done据说做了某事；使用不定式的完成式表示已经完成，已经发生的动作。第二空是with的复合结构，名词its oil与动词短语run out of构成被动关系，故使用run out of。Run out是没有被动语态。句义：据报道一艘装满昂贵货物的船由于汽油用完而沉没在大海里。故D正确。
35. It was the middle of the night __ my father woke me up and told me to watch the football game .
A. that B. as C. which D. when
【解析】本句中的when引导的是一个时间状语从句。句义：当我的父亲把我叫醒并我告诉我看足球赛的时候，那时在半夜。本句容易错选A项，认为是强调句型。实际上the middle of the night不能单独做时间状语，如果在the middle of the night前面加上in，本题就可以选择A项了。故D正确。
“Mum, can I invite my classmate Brett over to stay tomorrow night, please? It’s Friday, and we don’t have any _36__.Can I, please?” Mum was sitting at the kitchen table. Dad was _37__next to her, resting his head on his arms. Mum could _38__that James wanted so badly to have his friend over.

“I’m never allowed to have friends come to the house? Why, Mum?” James asked sadly, almost in _39__.
“I know it’s _40__ for you,” Mum said softly. “But I’m just worried other people might think we’re a little… strange. And then they would make fun of you.”[来&源:中@教#~*网]
“No, they wouldn’t, Mum,” James protested. “We’re not _41__ at all. We’re just ordinary people.”
Mum sighed heavily. “ To tell you the truth, James, my neck has been so painful that it’s given me a heavy _42__. And your poor father –he doesn’t feel _43__. He really needs a rest.”
“I can help, Mum!” James said. “_44__ I can make you and Dad feel better, can Brett come over? Please?”
“Great ! Thanks ,Mum!” James almost shouted. “ Just sit there, don’t move.” He rushed over to the kitchen drawer and _45__ what he needed –two spanners（扳手）. “ Hang on, Mum,” he said. “ This won’t take a second.” After some _46__, James was finished. With a smile of _47__ on his face he said, “ There! How does that feel?” “ Oh, James,” Mum said. “ That’s a much better! How did you do it?”
“Easy,” James said _48__.” Dad had tightened your neck bolts (螺栓) too much! I just_49__ them slightly ! I learned that in robotic science at school.”
“What about you father? Can you _50__ him?” asked Mum.
“I’ll try,” James replied. He __51_ up Dad’s hair at the back of his neck. and plugged the electric wire into Dad’s head. Then he turned the _52__on. Dad opened his eyes and _53__ immediately . “ He just let his _54__run too low, that’s all,” James said, “Shall I tell Brett to come over straight after school tomorrow?”
“I guess so,” replied Mum. “ Your friends will just have to _55__ that we are a very unusual family. Thanks, son !”

【试题解析】考察词义辨析及语境理解。A睡着的，入睡的；B阅读；C独自；D站立；根据下文resting his head on his arms头放在胳膊上，可知爸爸正在睡觉。
【试题解析】考察形容词词义辨析及上下文串联。A奇怪的；B正常的；C受欢迎的，流行的；D焦虑的；根据40空后we’re a little… strange.可知妈妈担心别人会认为我们很奇怪，但是James认为他们都是正常人，一点也不奇怪的。故A正确。
1.To tell you the truth, James, my neck has been so painful that it’s given me a heavy headache.
【分析】本句中的to tell you the truth说实话，在句中是插入语。另外后面的主句中含有so…that…的句式，that引导的是一个结果状语从句，
2. Shall I tell Brett to come over straight after school tomorrow?
【分析】本句中的shall用于一三人称，表示征求对方的意见。Will用于第二人称征求对方的意见。如：Will you have a try?
Larry was on another of his underwater expeditions(探险)but this time, it was different. He decided to take his daughter along with him. She was only ten years old. This would be her first trip with her father on what he had always been famous for.
Larry first began diving when he was his daughter’s age. Similarly, his father had taken him along on one of his expeditions. Since then, he had never looked back. Larry started out by renting diving suits from the small diving shop just along the shore. He had hated them. They were either too big or too small. Then, there was the instructor. He gave him a short lesson before allowing him into the water with his father. He had made an exception. Larry would never have been able to go down without at least five hours of theory and another similar number of hours on practical lessons with a guide. Children his age were not even allowed to dive.
After the first expedition, Larry’s later diving adventures only got better and better. There was never a dull moment. In his black and blue suit and with an oxygen tank fastened on his back, Larry dived from boats into the middle of the ocean. Dangerous areas did not prevent him from continuing his search. Sometimes, his was limited to a cage underwater but that did not bother him. At least, he was still able to take photographs of the underwater creatures.
Larry’s first expedition without his father was in the Cayman Islands.There were numerous diving spots in the area and Larry was determined to visit all of them .Fortunately for him,a man offered to take him around the differentspots for free. Larry didn’t even know what the time was how many spots he dived into or how many photographs he had taken.The diving spots afforded such a wide array of fish and sea creatures that Larry saw more than thirty varieties of creatures.
Larry looked at his daughter.She looked as excited as he had been when he was her age.He hoped she would be able to continue the family tradition.Already,she looked like she was much braver than had been then.This was the key to a successful underwater expedition.
56.In what way was this expedition different for Larry?
A.His daughter had grown up.
B.He had become a famous diver.
C.His father would dive with him.
D.His daughter would dive with him.
57.What can be inferred from Paragraph2?
A.Larry had some privileges.
B. Larry liked the rented diving suits.
C.Divers had to buy diving equipment.
D.Ten-year-old children were permitted to dive.
58.Why did Larry have to stay in a cage underwater sometimes?[www.%@z&zst*e#p.com]
A.To protect himself from danger.
B.To dive into the deep water.
C.To admire the underwater view.
D.To take photo more conveniently.
59.What can be learned from the underlined sentence?
A.Larry didn’t wear a watch.
B. Larry was not good at math.
C. Larry had a poor memory.
D. Larry enjoyed the adventure.
60.What did Larry expect his daughter to do?
A.Become a successful diver.
B. Make a good diving guide.
C. Take a lot of photosunderwater.
D. Have longer hours of training.
【试题解析】推理题。根据文章1,2行Larry was on another of his underwater expeditions(探险)but this time, it was different. He decided to take his daughter along with him.可知这次潜水最大的不同是Larry会带着他的女儿一起下水。故D正确。
【试题解析】推理题。根据第二段后两行. He had made an exception. Larry would never have been able to go down without at least five hours of theory and another similar number of hours on practical lessons with a guide. Children his age were not even allowed to dive.
【试题解析】推理题。根据文章第三段后2行Dangerous areas did not prevent him from continuing his search. Sometimes, his was limited to a cage underwater but that did not bother him. At least, he was still able to take photographs of the underwater creatures可知一些危险的地方也没有能够阻止他去探险，有些地方很危险，他们需要在笼子里，以保护自己不受到危险的侵害。说明把他放在水下的笼子里是为了保护他不受危险的侵害。故A正确。
【试题解析】推理题。根据本句. Larry didn’t even know what the time was how many spots he dived into or how many photographs he had taken.他甚至不再的自己曾经到过多少水下的地方，不知道之间潜水了多长时间，不知道自己拍摄了多少照片。可知他很享受自己的水下探险，到了忘我的境界。故D正确。
【试题解析】推理题。根据文章最后一段1，2行Larry looked at his daughter.She looked as excited as he had been when he was her age.He hoped she would be able to continue the family tradition.可知他希望女儿能够继续家庭的传统。他的父亲是一名潜水员，他也是。那么他也希望自己的女儿也成为一名成功的潜水员。故A正确。
This would be her first trip with her father on what he had always been famous for.
【分析】本句中的介词on后面有一个宾语从句what he had always been famous for.，what引导起这个宾语从句，并在句中充当介词for的宾语。

【试题解析】推理题。根据第一段1,2行Close your eyes foe a minutes and imagine what life would be like of you had a hundred dollars less. Also imagine what it would be like spending the rest of your life with you eyes closed. Imagine having to read this page, not with your eyes but with your finger-tips.闭上眼睛想象一下少了100美元并没有什么。但是想象一下如果我们在余生里都看不见，不是用眼睛看这篇文章，而是用手指来阅读。作者通过第一段是为了把读者的注意力吸引到盲人的身上。故C正确、
【试题解析】推理题。根据第一段最后2句With existing medical knowledge and skills, two-thirds of the world’s 42 million blind should not have to suffer. Unfortunately, rich countries posses most of this knowledge, while developing countries do not. 可知发动国家的技术更先进，能够给盲人带来更多的帮助，但是发展中国家并没有这样的技术，说明技术的分布并不公平。故C正确。
【试题解析】细节题。根据文章第三段1,2句ORBIS tries to help developing countries by providing training during three-week medical programs. ORBIS has taught sight-saving techniques to over 35,000 doctors and nurses, who continue to cure tens of thousands of blind people every year.得知ORBIS医学培训计划帮助发展中国家培养了很多治疗眼睛疾病的医生，然后这些医生再去帮助那些需要帮助的盲人。故B正确。
【试题解析】推理题。根据最后一段前2行For just US $38,you can help one person see; for $380 you can bring sight to 10 people; $1,300 helps teach a doctor new skills; and for $13,000 you can provide a training programme for a group of doctors who can make thousands of blind people see again.作者在呼吁我们为这个项目捐款，因为捐款可以帮助很多看不见的盲人重新看见光明。故A正确。
【试题解析】主旨大意题。本文在第一段里很巧妙地通过一个闭眼实验把我们的注意力吸引到盲人身上。接下来通过讲述ORBIS给盲人所做的工作来宣传ORBIS。最后号召我们为ORBIS捐款来帮助更多的盲人。所以本文实际上是介绍ORRIS Flying Hospital的。故C正确。
1.Also imagine what it would be like spending the rest of your life with you eyes closed
【分析】本句句子结构比较复杂，首先动词imagine后面有一个宾语从句what it would be like….；在这个从句中what既充当引导词也在句中做like的宾语。句中的it是形式主语，真正的主语是后面的动名词短语spending the rest of your life with you eyes closed，主语中含有with you eyes closed这个with复合结构。
2. ORBIS has taught sight-saving techniques to over 35,000 doctors and nurses, who continue to cure tens of thousands of blind people every year.
【分析】本句中含有一个非限制性定语从句who continue tens of thousands of blind people every year。其中的关系代词who指代先行词，在句中做主语。
Everyone looks forward to progress, whether in one’s personal life or in the general society. Progress indicates a person’s ability to change the way he is living at the moment. Progress must lead a better way of doing things.All these, however, remains true only in so far as people want to accept technology and move forward by finding new and more efficient ways of doing things.
However,at the back of the minds of many people,especially those who the “good old days”, efficiency comes with a price. When communication becomes efficient,people are able to contact one another no matter where they are and at whatever time they wish to.The click of a button allows people miles apart to talk or to see each other without even leaving their homes. With the communication gadgets, such as mobile phones and ipads, people often do not take the effort to visit one another personally.A personal visit carries with the additional feature of having to be in the person’s presence for as long as the visit lasts. We cannot unnecessarily excuse ourselves or turn the other person off.
With efficiency also comes mass production.Such is the nature of factories and the success of industrialization today.Factories have improved efficiency. Unskillful tasks are left to machines and products are better made and and produced with greater accuracy than any human hand could ever have done. However, with the improvements in efficiency also comes the loss of the personal
Touch when making these products. For example, many handcrafts(手工艺品) are now produced in a factory.
Although this means that supply is better able to increase demand, now that the supply is quick and efficient, the demand might fall because mass production lowers the quality of the handicraft and it is difficult to find unique designs on each item.
Nevertheless, we must not commit the mistake of analyzing progress only from one point of view. In fact, progress has allowed tradition to keep up. It is only with progress and the invention of new technology that many old products can be brought back to their old state. New technology is required for old products to stay old.
It is people’s attitude towards progress that causes the type of influence that technology has on society. Technology is flexible. There is no fixed way of making use of it. Everything depends on people’s attitude. The worst effects of progress will fall on those who are unable to rethink their attitudes and views of society. When we accept progress and adapt it to suit our needs, a new “past” is created.
70. According to Paragraph 1, progress can benefit people when they are willing to _______.
A. live a better life B. look for better methods
C. change ways of living D. accept technology and advance steadily
71. The underlined word “gadgets” is closest in meaning to _______.
A. tools B. messages C. barriers D. skills
72. The author explains “efficiency comes with a price” by _______.
A. describing a process B. using examples
C. following time order D. making classification
73. Compared with home-made handicrafts, machine-made products _______.
