It argues that,in fact,these young people are frittering away as much as half of their time again as they would if they performed the very same tasks one after the other. Some young people are juggling an ever larger number of electronic devices as they study. At the same time that they are working,young adults are also surfing on the Internet,or sending out emails to their friends,and/or answering the telephone and listening to music on their iPods2 or on another computer. As some new device comes along it too is added to the list rather than replacing one of the existing devices. Other research has indicated that this multitasking is even affecting the way families themselves function as young people are too wrapped up3 in their own isolated worlds to interact with the other people around them. They can no longer greet family members when they enter the house nor can they eat at the family table. All this electronic wizardry is supposedly also seriously affecting young people’s performance at university and in the workplace. When asked about their perception of the impact of modern gadgets on their performance of tasks,the overwhelming majority of young people gave a favour able response. The response from the academic and business worlds was not quite as positive. The former feel that multitasking with electronic gadgets by children affects later development of study skills,resulting in a decline in the quality of writing, for example,because of the lack of concentration on task completion. They feel that many undergraduates now urgently need remedial help with study skills. Similarly,employers feel that young people entering the workforce need to be taught all over again,as they have become deskilled. While all this may be true,it must be borne in mind4 that more and more is expected of young people nowadays; in fact, too much. Praise rather than criticism is due in respect of5 the way today’s youth are able to cope despite what the older generation throw at them. Excessive Demands on Young People 竞技还是表演?

  1.B 从第一段第一句话中的“a considerable amount of their time” “fruitless efforts”以及该段最后一句话中的“frittering away as much as…”可以进行同义替换,waste 就是 fruitless 和 fritter 的同义词。
  2.C 从第二段的最后一句话中的“added to the list rather than replacing”可以判断出,这些年轻人的电子设备是越来越多,而 不是 A 被取而代之、B 被轮流使用、D 被出售或交换以便买更新的产品。
  3.B 答案 A 是文字游戏,原文中“isolated worlds”应该理解为孤立的世界,即独自"alone",而不是孤独“lonely” 。答案 C 说他 们变得自私和占有欲强, 想买更多电子产品, 显然不对。 答案 D 说他们变得不懂礼貌和不知感恩, 均是对第三段最后一句话中的 “no longer greet”和“nor can they eat at the family table”的字面理解。答案 B 是两个近义词,重点在性格变化上,变得“若即若离,难以 捉摸"。
  4.D 答案 A 认为是态度问题,把客观问题主观化。答案 B 是误导选项,试图用“remedial help”误导大家联想到 remedy 一词,故引 出 psychological professional 的曲解。答案 C 把第五段第一句中的“later development”和“decline in the quality of...”表象 化,认为应该抓紧赶上同学(catch up)。答案 D 才是正确答案,问题症结在于 multitasking 难以让人集中注意力,造成浪费时间、影响 表现等后果,这些前文均已提过。
  5.A 答案 A 把 praise 替换成了相对隐性的近义词。答案 B 只针对最后一段的第一句话,断章取义。答案 C 前半部分 encouraging 还算 接近正确答案,后半部分则成了鼓励“将错就错"。答案 D 认为应采取“听之任之,顺其自然”的态度转 C级 The State of Marriage Today 当代婚姻 综合类 Is there something seriously wrong with marriage today? During the past 50 years,the rate of divorce in the United States has exploded:almost 50%of marriages end in divorce now,and the evidence suggests it is going to get worse. If this trend continues,it will lead to the breakup of the family,according to a spokesperson for the National Family Association. Some futurists predict that in 100 years,the average American will marry at least four times,and extramarital affairs will be even more common than they are now. But what are the reasons for this,and is the picture really so gloomy? The answer to the first question is really quite simple:marriage is no longer the necessity it once was. The institution of marriage has been based for years partly on economic
The State of Marriage Today
need. Women used to be economically dependent on their husbands as they usually didn’t have jobs outside the home. But with the rising number of women in well-paying jobs,this is no longer the case, so they don’t feel that they need to stay in a failing marriage. In answer to the second question,the outlook may not be as pessimistic as it seems. While the rate of divorce has risen, the rate of couples marrying has never actually fallen very much,so marriage is still quite popular. In addition to this, many couples now cohabit and don’t bother to marry. These couples are effectively married,but they do not appear in either the marriage or divorce statistics. In fact,more than 50%of first marriages survive. The statistics are deceptive because there is a higher number of divorces in second and third marriages than in first marriages. So is marriage really an outdated institution? The fact that most people still get married indicates that it isn't. And it is also true that married couples have a healthier life than single people:they suffer less from stress and its consequences, such as heart problems,and married men generally consider themselves more contented than their single counterparts. Perhaps the key is to find out what makes a successful marriage and apply it to all of our relationships! 当代婚姻 如今的婚姻出什么严重问题了吗?在过去 50 年中,美国的离婚率暴涨:现在几乎 50%的婚姻以离婚告终,证据显示,情况还将持续恶化。 据美国国家联合会的发言人称,如果这种趋势持续下去,将导致家庭的破裂。一些未来学家预测,100 年后的美国人将平均至少结四次婚, 而婚外恋甚至将比现在更为普遍。 那问题的原因是什么?现状真的如此糟糕吗?第一个问题的答案十分简单:婚姻早已不像它过去那样非有不可了。从好些年前开始,经济 需求已经只是婚姻的部分基础。过去,由于女性除了家庭以外没有任何工作,她们常常在经济上依赖丈夫。现在,随着高薪女性的增多, 情况也已经改变。因此,她们觉得没有必要被一段失败的婚姻捆住手脚。 回答第二个问题,前景似乎不像它看起来那么令人悲观。尽管离婚率升高,但世纪结婚率并没有下降,所以说结婚还是挺流行的。除此之 外,现在许多恋人同居但并不急着领证。这些人事实上已经结婚,但他们却是统计结婚与离婚率的盲区。超过 50%的第一次婚姻实际上是 成功的。之前数据的欺骗性在于二度与三度婚姻的离婚率要高于首次婚姻。 婚姻真的过时了吗?大多数人仍会结婚,这一事实证明不是这样的。而且事实上婚后夫妻比单身过着更健康的生活:他们压力较小,因压 力产生的诸如心脏问题也相应减少。而且,婚后男性总体上较之配偶更为满意。也许,关键在于找出成功婚姻背后的秘诀并把它运用到我 们所有人与人的关系中去。 词汇: divorce n.离婚 cohabit v.同居 evidence n.证据,迹象 effectively ad.实际上 futurist n.未来主义者 statistics n.统计,统计资料 explode v.激增,迅速扩大 deceptive adj.迷惑的,骗人的 predict v.预言,预料,预报 outdated adj.旧式的,过时的 extramarital adj.婚外的 indicate v.表明,暗示 gloomy adj.阴暗的;令人沮丧的 consequence n.结果,后果 institution n.制度,习俗 contented adj.满足的,满意的 outlook n.展望,前景 counterpart n.对应的人(或物) pessimistic adj.悲观的 注释: National Family Association:美国国家家庭联合会 练习:
