Answers: Answers:

  1.选 M)。此处应填名词,作介词 of 的宾语,作为后置定语修饰 earthquake,说明该名词是“地震” 的自然属性。选项中的名词有 changes,safety,intensity 和 security,只有 intensity 可以表示地震 的强度,故选 M)。
  2.选 G)。此处应填副词,用来修饰形容词 less。选项中的副词有 relatively“相对的”和 accordingly“相应的”,第一段说这次地震和 1998 年的那次地震程度一样,但造成的损失却小很多,再 从后句中“高速路上的车辆不是很多”可以推断:这次的地震造成的“死伤人数”与 1998 年比少很多,即 少是相对的,故选 G)relatively。
  3.选 A)。空格中要填的词是本句话中的主语,应为名词。这句话的主干是 have strengthened the city’s buildings and highways,从第三段的内容和注释 3 的解析可知:建筑结构发生了变化,故应选 择 A)changes。
  4.选 I)。此处应填形容词,和其前面的 more 构成形容词的比较级,描述新型建筑与地震有关的性能。 them = the city’s buildings and highways, have strengthened “被加固”说明他们更有抵御风险 的能力了。选项中的四个形容词只有 resistant 符合这个意思,故选 I)。
  5.选 B)。此处应填形容词,修饰名词 materials。从后面的。。.bent without breaking “即使弯 曲也不会折断”,说明是有韧性的材料。选项中的四个形容词只有 flexible 表示“柔韧的,可变形的”, 故 B)正确。
  6.选 F)。此处应填名词。根据上下文 insert rubber and steel between the building and its foundation“在建筑物和地基之间填充橡胶和钢材”是为了减少 the impact of ground vibrations“地 面震动对建筑物的影响”。选项中 decrease 和 reduce 都可以表示“减少”的意思,前者指稳定的逐步地 减少,后者强调在大小、程度或强度方面下降或减少。故 F)reduce 更符合题意。
  7.选 D)。根据注释
  3,可以推知,这里要填的词是和前面的 In the past, Laer 相对应的,选项中 的形容词中只有 recent 可表示时间,the most recent desighs“最近的设计”,在原文中可以对应“过 去,后来”,故 D)为正确答案。

  8.选 K)。前面提到了智能建筑,这里说明当地震使这样的建筑向前倒的时候,电脑会怎样它,使它 相反方向移动。在动词 push 和 force 之间悬着。push 强调的是外加的力量,而这里的拖力者是与智能建 筑一体的计算机系统,故这里 force 符合文意。
  9.选 N)。此后应填名词,做动词 offer 的宾语。本句前面一直在描述新型建筑采取的抗震措施,本 句是这些措施的结果。 抗震型建筑为城市提供的应该是更多的安全保障, 选项中表示“安全”的词有 safety 和 security,前者是处于安全状态,不受伤害,没有危险,多用于人身,货物。后者常指国家社会的免遭 战争,灾难而安然无恙,故 N)security 更符合文意。
  10.选 J)。此处应填形容词。从后面的 However 后的一句说明智能建筑的优点而得知,However 前所 说的是智能建筑的缺点。既然智能建筑很聪明,又是新事物,那么建造起来肯定会耗费很多资金的,所以 选 J)expensive。
