David (10)______ about four hours a day to the care of the ravens. He has grown to love

them and the (11)______ that he lives right next to them is ideal. “I can (12)______ a

Mo was not (14)______ on the idea of life in the Tower2, but she too will be sad to leave

1. B 根据上下文,这里应选择比较级,所以排除D,再根据句意,为“更为人所熟知”,


2. D 根据句意,词组搭配at the top of,表示在……顶部最为合适。Height意为“高度”,


3. C 根据句意,从卧室的角度看去,from最为恰当。

(8)______ was taking it all, he began to regret his decision to fight. And then in the third

round, Harrelson hit Banderas (9)______ hard in the face that he actually- broke his nose.

His wife, actress Melanie Griffith, was furious that he had been playing "silly macho

games". "She was right," confesses Banderas, “sand I was a fool to (10)______ a risk like

that in the middle of a movie.”

He was (11)______ of the time2 he broke his leg during a football match in his native

Malaga. He had always (12)______ of becoming a soccer star, of performing in front of a

big crowd, but doctors told him his playing days were probably over. "That's when I

1. C 根据句意,每次骨折似乎总是发生在做运动时,应当选用动词do。practise表示“练习”, 后面应跟某一项具体的训练,而不是sport,所以正确答案为C。

2. A play the part of…为固定搭配,意为“扮演一个……的角色”,其他三项均不合适。

3. D 联系上下文,根据句意,在影片制作过程中,所以应当用during。

4. A 根据句意,Harrelson在影片制作过程中不断地抱怨,而且后面的动词complain用的是ing形式,因此动词keep“连续,不断”最为恰当。continue后加动词ing形式一般表示在停顿后重新开始、继续,carry一般后面跟介词on,表示“进行某项事务”,insist表示“坚决主张”, 不合句意,所以选A。

5. C 联系上下文,因为是影片中的打斗场景,所以这里scene是正确答案。

6. B be keen on为固定搭配,表示“对……感兴趣,对……热衷”,interest后面配介词in, enthusiastic。后面配介词of。

7. B 联系上下文,作者要表达的是最终他还是被他的搭档说服了,副词eventually放在动词persuade之前,lastly表示“最后一点,最后”,"at the end”一般放在段落的最后,表示最后怎么样。

8. C 根据句意,“当他意识到……是全心全意投入进来时,他开始后悔自己要打斗的决定”,


9. D so...that…固定搭配,太?…??以至于……,根据句意,"Harrelson如此狠地打在Banderas 的脸上,以至于居然打破了Banderas的鼻子”,其他选项都不适合。 1O.A 固定搭配take a risk,表示“冒险”。

11. B 联系上下文,根据句意,“他记起在他的故乡马拉加进行的一场足球比赛”,是因为鼻子骨折这件事促使他想起了故乡的那次比赛,remind表示“提醒”,符合句意。remember表示 “自然想起,记起”不合句意。

12. C 根据句意和后面的介词of,显然,“他一直梦想成为一个足球明星”,dream是正确答案。pretend表示“假装”,后面跟介词to,不合句意;look forward表示“向往”,后面跟介词to,不合句意。

13. A 固定搭配take up sth.,表示“开始从事某事”,根据句意,作者要表达的是“我决定开始演戏”,因此up是正确答案。

14. D 联系上下文,作者显然把它看成是另外一种比赛,所以只有another符合句意。

15. B 词组football pitch,表示“足球场”。前面由介词on引导,后面一定是场地,也就是足球场,而不是match“比赛”。court表示“网球场”,course表示“跑道”,均不符合句意。 译文: 幸运的骨折

演员Antonio Banderas经常骨折,而且它似乎总是发生在运动时。在影片《拳拳到骨》中,他与Woody Harrelson并肩,扮演一个中量级拳击手。在影片制作过程中,Harrelson不停地抱怨整个打斗场面并不是很令人信服,所以一天,他提议他和Banderas应该进行一场真正的打斗。


女演员Melanie Griffith,他的妻子对他进行这样一场“傻男子气概的游戏”非常愤怒。“她是对

1 Aromatherapy is a form of alternative medicine which is based on the use of very concentrated essential oils from the flowers,leaves,bark,branches or roots of plants which are considered to have healing ptoperties.In aromatherapy these powerful oils are mixed with other oils,such

as almond(杏仁)oil,or they are diluted(稀释)with water.These solutions(溶液剂)can be rubbed on the skin,sprayed in the air,or applied as a compress(敷药)。

2 Many people have aroatherapy massages(按摩),and depending on the treatment aperson is having,the aroatherapist will massage the oil into the hands or shoulders.The massage is smooth and flowing,as it is designed to create a sense of relaxation and calm.The sessions are tailored to the individual's health and mood at rhe time,so every session is unique.

3 Practioners of aromatherapy believe that the aroma of the essential oils directy stimulates the brain or that the oils are absorbed through the skin into the bloodstream,where they can affect the whole body and promote healing.Other claims in support of aromatherapy are that it aids digestion,imtproves the functiong of respiratory system,reduces muscular aches and pains,and promotes muscle relaxation and tone.It has also been argued that aromatherapy can improve circulation,lower blood pressure,and help combat insomia(失眠)and other stress-related disorders such as tension headaches,anxiety,and mild depression.

4 However,while aroatherapy may hace real effects that promate a sense of well-being,some tradional medicine practitioners remain doubtful about its powers.While research has confirmed that aroatherapy does have some positive short-term effects on most people,it also suggests that aroatherapy is not an actual science or medicine that should be used to treat illness.Furthermore,not all aroatherapy is considered beneficial to health.There are precautions which shoula be taken bofore having aroatherapy because some oils can have negative effets on people with certain medical conditions.The study of aroatherapy is relatively new and unexplored.More research needs to be conducted to make scientific conclusions about its use and effects.

A New Strategy to Overcome Breast Cancer

Post-menopausal women who walk for an hour a day can cut their chance of breast cancer

significantly,a study has suggested. The report ,which followed 73,000 women for 17 years,found walking for at least seven hours a week lowered the risk of the disease.The American Cancer Society team said this was the first time reduced risk was specifically linked to walking. UK experts said it was more evidence that lifestyle influenced cancer risk.

A recent poll for the charity Ramblers a quarter of adults walk for no more than an hour a week,but being active is known to reduce the risk of a number of cancers.This study, published in Cancer Epidemiology,Biomarkers&Prevention,followed 73.615 women out of 97,785 aged 50-74 who had been recruited by the American Cancer Society between 1992 and 1993,so it could monitor the incidence of cancer in the group.

They were asked to complete questionnaires on their health and on how much time they were active and participating in activities such as walking,swimming and aerobics(有氧运动)and how much time they spent sitting watching television or reading.They completed the same questionnaires at two-year intervals between 1997 and 2009.Of the women,47% said walking was their only recreational acivity.Those who walked for at least seven hours per week had a 14% lower risk of breast cancer compared to those who walked three or fewer hours per week.

Dr.Alpa Patel,a senior epidemiologist at the American Cancer Society in Atlanta,Georgia,who led the study,said:”Given that more than 60% of women report some daily walking,promoting walking as a healthy leisure-time activity could be an effective strategy for increasing physical activity

amongst post-menopausal women.We were pleased to find that without any other recreational activity, just walking one hour a day was associated with a lower risk of breast cancer in these women.””More strenuous(紧张的)and longer activities lowered the risk even more.

Baroness Delyth Morgan, chief executive of Breast Cancer Campaign,said:”This study adds further evidence that our lifestyle choices can play a part in influencing the risk of breast cancer and even small changes incorporate into our normal day-to-day activity can make a difference.”

She added:”We know that the best weapon to overcoming breast cancer is the ability to stop it occurring in the first place. The challenge now is how we turn these findings into action and identify other sustainable lifestyle changes that will help us prevent breast cancer.”

33. Dr. Alpa Patel was_____.
