一、先读问题，弄清考查要点，以便能带 着问题看文章，这样会心中有数，有的放矢。 二、快速浏览全文，掌握全貌，注意发现与问 题有关的信息，如果时间紧，至少要扫视一下起 首段和尾段。再把标题和文章内容结合起来想一 想，这样全文大意便清楚了。此时，不要忙于答 题。
三、细读原文，捕捉相关信息词，掌握短文细 节内容。这是解题的关键，应特别注意以下几点： 1． 抓住四个"W"和一个"H"，就是边读边用 铅笔做些标记，把What (事件)，When（时间）， Where（地点），Why（原因），How（经过） 划出来。抓住了四个“W”和一个“H”，就抓住 了文章的全貌，一些直接性的问题便可解决。 2．抓住连接词及起关键作用的副词、代词、 介词、插入语等。因为这些词具有因果，让步， 递进，转折，指代，列举及承上启下等各种连接 上下文的特殊功能。这对考生分清文章层次，辨 明各种关系，了解人物心理，推断作者意图，进 行逻辑推理等手段来分析难点，都具有举足轻重 的作用。 3． 注意领会文章的寓意。
4．根据题意，初选答案。这一步须仔细审题， 领会测试要求，确定解题方法。对那些明显的， 有把握的题可以断然确定，不必把其余三个答案 再作推敲而浪费时间：有些略难的题，应再查阅 短文（不是重读一遍），迅速找出依据，予以排 除。常用的解题方法有如下几种： ① 直接解题法。即从原文中直接找出答案。 ② 归纳解题法。对于不能从原文中直接找出答 案的可在把握全文中心和线索的前题下进行概括、 归纳得出正确答案。
③ 综合推理法。读者需统观全文，认真分析， 综合推理及至计算，最后归纳出正确答案。 题干中有"suggest, conclude, conclusion, probably, reason, because, according to“等字眼 时，属于推断概括型，考查内容着眼于全篇，考 生应具备一定的分析归纳，推理等逻辑思维能力。 ④ 捕捉关键词。在阅读时应该注意与问题相关 的同义词，近义词，反义词或同位词等信息词来 得出正确答案。 ⑤ 转换解题法。即原文这么说，而在问题和所 给选项中则用另外的词去转换一种说法，但仍表 示同一含义。 ⑥ 排除法。根据语言，句法结构，信息词和常 识，在没有把握的选项中用排除法得出正确答案。
四、重读原文，仔细斟酌核对答案。在解完最 后一道题后，如果时间允许，再将原文读一遍； 用全文的主题思想统率各思考题，研究其内在联 系和逻辑关系，目的在于对所做答案进一步审查， 推出未解答的题，以便减少失误。
典型例题分析 根据内容，从短文后每题的四个选项中选择最佳的一项。 M
r Brown first went to look at the underground fire when he was seven. "Through the hole（洞）in the earth you could see the orange fire, but you had to look fast because it was so hot," said Mr Brown. In 1898, he saw the fire once more（再一次）. Now, we can only see the smoke. The fire Mr Brown saw is not the underground - fire. In fact, there are 260 coal（煤）fires in the world. They are harmful （有害）and dangerous. Then how to put them out? Scientists have tried to set（放置）fire to underground coal to speed up（加速）the fires. In this way, the burning（燃烧）of underground coal would be soon finished.（被烧完）。
A 1. Mr Brown first saw the underground - fire ________. A. at the age of seven B. seven years old C. in the year of 1898 D. more than（超过） 80 years ago 2. Mr Brown said that we had to take a fast look at the fire because ________. B A. it was in the hole B. it was very hot C. it was orange D. it was harmful 3. How many coal fires are there in the world? C A. There's only one. B. It's hard to say. C. There are 260. D. The article（文章）doesn't tell us.
4. What’s one of the best ways to put out（扑灭）the underground fire? B A. To cover（覆盖）the holes with stones（石块）. B. To speed up the fires. C. To see the fires burning. D. To do some experiments（试验）. 5. What is the best title（标题）for the article? B A. Watching the Underground - Fire. B. A Way to Put Out the Coal Fires. C. The Burning Earth. D. Coal and Coal Fires.
[分析] 1. 在文章的第一段的第一句里可以找到依据。at the age of seven 等于when he was seven，故正确答案为 A。 2．这一题可以在第一段里直接找到答案，属于直接 回答题。正确答案为 B。 3．这一题可以在第二段里直接找到答案，属于直接 回答题。正确答案为 C。 4．在文章的最后一段提到了扑灭火的最好方法，那 就是使火加速燃烧。正确答案为 B。 5．完成这道题需作一定的归纳，因为文章中没有给 出直接的回答。文章从Mr Brown两次看火，然后说出地 下火的危害，最后提出如何灭火的方法。文章的前两段 是给为什么要灭火和如何灭火铺垫，如何灭火才是文章 的中心。故正确答案为 B。
一、根据文章内容判断正误 Fred telephoned his wife. “I’ve got two free tickets for the theatre tonight,” he told her. “Meet me outside the office. We’ll have something to eat and then go on to the theatre.” Fred’s wife was very pleased. They hadn’t been to the theatre for a long time. She met her husband as he told her. They had dinner and got to the theatre just in time. At the entrance Fred took out his wallet to get the tickets. “It’s very strange,” he said. “They aren’t here!” “Try your pockets,” said his wife. But the tickets weren’t there, either. Then Fred looked very embarrassed (尴尬). “What’s the matter?” as
ked his wife. “Well,” Fred said, “I remember what I did with my tickets. I put them in my bag. But because I wasn’t going home, I left it in the office!”
( ) 1. One day, Fred was given the tickets for the theatre. ( ) 2. Fred and his wife went to the theatre quite often. ( ) 3. Fred wanted to meet his wife in a restaurant. ( ) 4. They reached the theatre neither late nor early. ( ) 5. Then Fred couldn’t find his tickets and remembered what he had done with the tickets.
1、T 因为第一段中提到Fred told his wife “I’ve got two free tickets…” “free” 此处是免费的意思。 2、F 第二段中提到“They hadn’t been to the theater for a long time.” 3、F 第一段中Fred说“Meet me outside the office.” 4、T 第二段中“in time”是及时的意思。5T 结尾处提到的。
David McConnell sold books from door to door. Housewives(家庭主妇)were not interested in the books. Usually before he had enough time to say anything about his books, the women closed their doors. But he didn’t give up. McConnell decided to bring each of them a present, a small bottle of perfume(香水)made by himself. He soon found that the women liked the perfume better than the books. He stopped selling books to sell perfume instead and started his own company “Avon”, which is a great success. When you do nothing, you learn nothing. But when you try, even though you are not successful, you will learn what doesn’t work and that puts you closer to what will work. It doesn’t matter how many times you are not successful. It does matter that you will be successful one
Edison was not on the way to success until people bought his first invention. Success once is enough for Edison. And the same for you—success once is enough. ( ) 1. McConnell was successful as a book-seller. ( ) 2. McConnell hoped those women would buy his books if he brought them each a present. ( ) 3. If you do nothing at all, you will never be successful. ( ) 4. Edison was successful at the very beginning. ( ) 5. The writer encouraged us to try as much as we can.
1、F 从第一段“He stopped selling books to sell perfume stead.”，可以判断出他在推销书方 面并不成功。 2、T 第一段第三行提到“McConnell decided to bring each of them a present,…”。 3、T 这句是第二段前两句的解释。
4、F 最后一段，第一句说明Edison 的发明被人 们认可后才走上了成功之路。 5、T 第二段中作者提出了自己的观点。
Sociologists(社会学家), working in western countries, have found that a large number of women wished they had been born men. The number is said to be as high as 60% in Germany. “Women often wish they had the same chances as men have, and think it is still men’s world,” said Dr James Helen, one of the sociologists who did the study. Many men say that they have more duties than women. A man has to make money to support(养 活)his family and to make the importa
nt decision, so it is right for men to be paid more. Some are even against their wives working at all. When wives go out to work, they say, the home and children cannot be
taken good care of. If women take full-time jobs, they won’t be able to do what they are best at doing: making a nice home and bringing up the children. Some women disagree. They say they want to get out of their homes and to have freedom(自由) to choose between work and home life. Women have the right of equal pay and equal chances(平等机 会). Anne Harper has a very good job. She also believes in “Women’s Liberation(解放).” “I don’t wish I were a man, ”she says, “and I don’t think many women do. But I do wish people would stop treating(对待) us like second—class people.
At work, for example, we usually do the work that men do but get paid less. There are still a lot of jobs only to men— usually they are the best ones. If you are a man, you have a much better chance of living a wonderful life. How many women scientists are there…or engineers?”
) 1. many men think__________. A. women can’t do what men can B. men have to work much harder than women C. men can make money more easily than women D. women’s duty is mainly to do housework at home
1、D 这是一道概括主旨的题，答此题的依据是第 三段内容。这段开头两句话说的是重男，那么不言 而喻，家务活和教育子女的任务应有妇女承担；另 有一些男士则公开反对女士外出工作。可见，不少 男士认为妇女的主要职责是在家料理家务。
) 2. Some women have different ideas, They say that__________. A. women need chances to go out of the home more often B. women want more freedom in deciding the kind of life they want C. if women are given equal pay, they can do everything instead of men D. women are no longer interested in taking care of their homes
2、B 一些妇女持不同观点，文中第四段反映了 他们的意见。这也正是文章的中心思想的写作意 图----争取人权平等，妇女自由，男女平等。
( ) 3. Anne Harper didn’t wish to be a man__________. A. because she believed in “Women’s Liberation” B. but she wished to get the same jobs as men C. because she had got a good job D. but she wished to treated the same as a man 3、D 安妮.哈珀不希望自己是男士，但她希望 社会像对待男士一样对待她。该题是一考查细 节的题，答案在最后一段。
( A. B. C. D.
) 4. women women women women
Anne Harper thought that__________. should live a better life than men should be really liberated should be given better jobs than men should live a more wonderful life
4、B 安妮.哈珀的想法正是作者的意图，如 最后一段写到：She also believes in “Women’s Liberation.” 然后她又列举了许多 事实，其立意还是为了说明这一正确论点。
( ) 5. Which of the following is not true according to the passa
ge? A. There are more men scientists, engineers than women ones. B. Women are second—class people, so they shouldn’t live a better life. C. Women do the same jobs as men, but get paid less than men. D. There are some best Jobs that women have few chances to take.
5、B 选题B的观点在文中没有出现。文中男士尽管 摆出种种理由，但还没有人敢明目张胆地发表歧视妇 女的观点，即把妇女作为二等公民，认为妇女不应生 活的更美好。

（8） Everyone bathes in a different way. Most Americans never take a bath. They soap and rinse（冲洗）off under the shower. The English always take a bath. First, they sit in a bathtub full of warm water. Then they soap themselves, and finally, they rinse off the soap, all in the same water. The Japanese on the other hand, first wash with soap in the shower. Then they go and sit in a bathtub full of warm water for twenty minutes or more. Later, others in the family use the same water to sit and relax in.
The Thai（泰国人）do not get into a shower or a bathtub. They stand in a room or area of a house where there is a big jar（罐子）full of water. With a bowl they pour water from the jar on the
mselves so that other people do not see their bodies. The Thai always wear a long piece of cloth called a pasin around their bodies. They wear this when they are bathing.. Everyone gets clean in a different way. We know that washing is good healthy for us. But this was not true in the past. Up to 1800, most Americans did not bathe because they thought it was bad for them.
1. 2. 3. 4.
What is the passage about? Why do people often bathe? Who needs a bathtub when he bathes? Why do the Thai use a pasin around their bodies when they bathe? 5. When did most Americans begin to bathe often?
