1. 动词prove用的是过去式形式proved,这是一种虚拟语气表示假设的用法。

2. Nobody’s going to drop dead overnight … : “没有人会在一个晚上倒地死去……” overnight 是副词,意为“一夜间;一下子;整夜”。如:

On his way to Europe, John stayed with his parents in Chicago overnight.

4. 介词by表示“到……前”。如:职称英语

the year 2000 : 公元2000年。

5. many in high density residential areas :是独立分词短语。注意它省略了being, 即 many (being) in high density residential areas. 此外,many 指的是 many transmitter towers.

6. at a rate more than three times that of adults 可以理解为 at a rate (that is ) more than three times that of adults, 意为“以比成人多两倍的比率……”短语中的that 指代rate。倍数的表达法是:“数字 + times + 名词/that”。如:

F. The conclusion is that mobile phones brings more harm than benefit.

答案与题解:

1. C “空1”应该填入与low-level radiation 有关的内容,例如 low-level radiation 究竟有害还是无害。所以,C是合适的选项。此外,直接阴郁也佐证了选择的合理性。

2. B “空2”前面一句介绍了澳大利亚拥有手机的现状。选项B的内容是对到2000年年底之前手机发展前景的预测,内容连贯,是正确答案。

3. E 这一段的第一句说的是,许多微波发射塔建在人口稠密的居民区。选项E的内容涉及微波发射塔的地点选择只考虑到地理位置,而不顾及公众的需求。选项E扩展了第一句表达的信息。此外,选项E中出现 tower 这个词,与第一句的 tower 相呼应,也佐证了选择的合理性。

4. A “空4”前面一句说的是Robert Bell建议政府应该禁止在学校操场、儿童日托中心、医院、运动场所以及儿童占比例较高的居住场所方圆500米范围内建发射塔。选项A说明要这样做的原因,因而是答案。

5. D “空5”后面一句说的是 major telephone companies 出钱资助研究项目的问题,提示了D是正确答案。
