  参考答案及详解:

  1. B) 根据上下文结构和句意,此空需要一个关联性的状语, 而且根据句义需要一个表示转折意义的副词, 故选项B However 为正确答案。Generally 意为“广泛地,普遍地,总的来说”,可作评述性状语;Possibly意为“可能地”,也可作评述性状语和一般修饰性状语;Likewise意为“同样地,照样地;又,也”,在句中可作关联性的状语,但不是转折意义的。

  2. C) 此空涉及到某些感官动词如:see,hear,watch,feel等所接宾语结构。这些动词后可接复杂宾语结构,即see,hear,watch,feel + sb. + do或see,hear,watch,feel + sb. + doing,因此此题正确答案为选项C。

  3. C) 首先可知此空需要一个副词,因此可排除B和D。Out of the question意为“不可能”,意义不合适;Probably意为“很可能地”,用在此处表示作者比较肯定的猜测。

  4. A) 根据上下文可知,魔术家Houdini擅长“逃脱”,他可以轻易地打开锁头,从被锁处逃脱。因此此空的正确答案为A。

  5. D) 通过阅读上下文可知此处需要一个引导让步状语从句的连词,只有选项D符合。

  6. D) 同位语从句用that引导。

  7. D) Bound是bind的过去式,意为“捆绑”。其它三词意义不符。

  8. C) In an instant是固定搭配,意为“立刻,马上”。

  9. C) 四个选项中动词charge一般不与of搭配使用。rid…of 意为“除掉”,不符。deprive …… of意为“剥夺…”,意义不符。选项C accuse 和of 搭配意为“指控… ”,为正确答案。

  10. D) Mud和something是不可数名词,不符;像蜡一样的candle是不合逻辑的;因此只有选项D substance(物质)正确。

  11. A) 通过阅读本句可断定此空需要一个从属连词引导时间状语,四个选项只有A as 正确。

  12. D) Overall是形容词,不符;All but意为“几乎,差不多”,意义不符;No longer意义不符。故只有altogether(总起来说)符合,故为正确答案。

  13. B) 只有which才能用于介词后来引导定语从句。

  14. A) 根据上文可知此空应为chest。

  15. A) 通过阅读上下文可知,Houdini被装进木桶扔进了海里,但他很快就逃了出来,当木桶被捞上来时,人们发现桶被打开了,捆在木桶外面的铁链子却被放到了桶里面,由此可知此空应选A brought up“把…弄上来”。
