  1) George Bernard Shaw and Winston Churchill disliked each other. It is said that the playwright(剧作家) once sent Churchill two tickets for the opening night of one of his plays, together with a card, which said, “Bring a friend (if you have one).” Churchill, however, returned the tickets with a note, which said, “I shall be busy that evening. Please send me two tickets for the second night (if there is one).” There is no record of whether Shaw ever sent the tickets.
  1. What was Shaw trying to say to Churchill on his card? A. Churchill should not go to the play alone. B. Churchill should not bring too many people. C. Churchill may have to waste the two tickets. D. Churchill did not have any friend.
  2. Why didn’t Churchill want the tickets for the first night? A. He didn’t want to take Shaw’s insult(侮辱). B. The theatre would not be as crowded the second night. C. He was busy on the first night of the show. D. He couldn’t find a friend to go with him the first night. 【答案与解析】本文讲述了 Shaw 与 Churchill 相互挖苦、讽刺的幽默故事。
  1. D。推断题。根据文章的交代,他们两人相互讨厌对方,于是 Shaw 在所送的票上写 着 if you have one,言外之意 Churchill 没有朋友,从而可推知此题答案为 D。
  2. A。推断题。根据文章的语气 if there is one 可看出:Churchill 不甘 Shaw 的侮辱, 于是,反唇相讥,言外之意,你的戏不会有第 2 场,从而可推知此题答案为 A。

  1. D。细节题。根据 …had just been knocked down and killed (knock down:被车撞倒) 可知答案为 D。
  2. C。 推断题。 从原文最后两句话可知年轻人希望自己是那个出车祸而死的富翁的亲人, 这样他可以继承一大笔遗产,所以此题答案为 C。

  3) A: I once heard someone shout, “Look out.” I put my heard out of the window and a bucketful water fell on me. It seems that “Look out” may mean “Don’t look out”. B: I was once on a ship and heard the captain shout, “All hands on deck(甲板).” I put my hands on the deck and someone walked on them. C: I once called early on an English friend and the servant who came to the door said, “He’s not up yet. Come back in half an hour.” When I went again for him, she said, “He’s not down yet.” I said, “If he’s neither up nor down. Where is he?”

  1. C。词义推断题。根据 A 听到有人喊 “Look out.”,就把头伸出窗外,结果是一桶
水泼了下来,由此推出泼水的人喊 “look out” 是在提醒别人当心一下,他要泼水了,因此 “look out” 是注意、当心的意思,所以此题答案为 C。
  2. B。细节判断题。“all hands on deck” 是“全体船员到甲板上集合”的意思,B 却误 解了这句话的含义,把双手放在了甲板上。因为船员要到甲板上集合,就有人踩到了他的双 手,由此可知 “them”是 “my hands” 的意思,所以答案为 B。
  3. D。词义推断题。根据 C 讲述的第 1 句中 “early” 的和仆人说的话 He’s not up yet. Come back in half an hour 可推出 He’s not up 是 He hasn’t got up 之意;根据 When I went again for him, she said, “He’s not down yet.” 可推知 He’s not down downstairs 之意。所以答案为 D。
  4. C。语义理解题。通读全文可知,A、B、C 三人因为没有理解这些习语的真正含义, 所以他们对别人的做法和说的话感到迷惑不解。由此可知 How strange 作为这篇文章的标 题最合适,所以答案为 C。
  5. D。主旨题。通读全文可知 “look out” “ all hands on deck” “ up” “down” 在特殊的语 境里都不再是字面的意思了, 由此可知作者是想告诉读者有些词或短语在不同的语境里有不 同的含义,所以答案为 D。 是 He hasn’t come
