  1. B account for是个动词短语,意思是“解释,说明”,和动词explain的意思相当,又如:How do you account for your absence at the meeting?(你开会缺席如何解释?)其他几个动词的意思分别是:assess评估,describe描述,investigate调查。

  2. D minute作名词用是“分钟”,这里是作形容词用,意思是“细小的,细微的”,发音和名词minute也不同。在四个选项中和slight同义。又如:There are minute differences between the two proposals.(这两个提议之间的差别很小。)big, dramatic这两个选项意义恰好和minute相反,timely是“及时的”,和minute的意义不相干。

  3. A disorder是order(秩序)的反义词,意为“无序,混乱”,故应选confusion.Disagreement(不一致),disappearance(消失)均和句子的内容无关,disaster是“灾难”的意思,和disorder的意思有出入。

  4. B to accuse sb. of sth.这个动词短语的意思是“指控某人犯了错误,罪行”,在本句中以被动形式出现,又如:The court accused him of murder(法庭指控他犯有谋杀罪)。四个选项中charged…with和accused…of同义。另外三个选项中,arrested for, praised for都可以替代accused of的位置,但意思分别是“被逮捕”和“受表扬”,显然和句子的原意不一致,described as是“被描述为……”的意思,这里是不能用的。

  5. D 所给的四个选项都是用动词look构成的短语,但其中只有一个的意义相当于动词investigate(调查),那就是look into,其他三个选项的意义分别是:look after照料,look through审核,look forward to期待。

  6. A numerous是个形容词,意思是“许多”,原句的意思是“作了许多尝试来掩盖真相”。在四个选项中只有many和它意义相同。其他三个的意思和numerous毫无相近之处。

  7. D obvious的意思是“显示而易见的,明显的”,在四个选项中只有clear的意思与它最接近。

  8. C 此句的意思是“奇怪的是对那位天才的画家人们了解的这么少”。odd是形容词,意思是“奇怪的”,如:It was odd of him to turn down the proposal.(他拒绝这个建议有点奇怪。)故应选strange.

  9. C participate in是个动词短语,意思是“参加”,和短语take part in同义,又如:The teacher expected all the students to participate in the speech contest.(老师希望所有的学生都参加演讲比赛。)其他三个选项的意思是:contribute to对……做出贡献,take pleasure in乐于做某事,enjoy喜欢。

  10. D preserve是“保存”的意思,preserve meat即“保存肉类”,故应选keep,另外三个动词也都可以用在meat前面,但意思均不是保存,carve meat(把肉分割),cook meat(煮肉),freeze meat(把肉冷冻)。

  11. C previously是副词,意思是“以前、先前”,和作副词用的before同义,又如:I have never heard this language spoken previously.(此前我从来没有听人讲过这种语言。)beforehand和in advance意思相同,都是“事先,预先”的意思,如:The journey is going to be difficult; we must get well prepared beforehand.(此次路途多辛劳,我们得事前作好准备。)Are we to pay him in advance?(我们是否要先预付给他钱?)

  12. A pull up这个动词短语的意思是“(车辆)停下”,所以应选stop这个动词,slow down慢下来,speed up加速,turn up出现。

  13. B perceive这个动词的意思是“感到”,又如:The change in his tone was slight, but most people present perceived it.(他语气的变化虽很细微,但在场的大多数人还是感觉到了。)appreciate是“欣赏,赞赏”的意思,describe描述,discover发现。

  14. B possess这个动词的意思是“拥有,占有”,和own同义,又如:I don't own much wealth but I possess good health.(我们没有多少财富,但我拥有健康)。waste是“浪费”的意思,purchase购买,和buy同义,sell出售。

  15. A substantial的意思是“十足的,坚固的,实质的,本质的”,如:a substantial building, a substantial meal, a substantial victory.原句的意思是“他们都同意所发生的变化是实质性的”。在四个选项中significant的意思与之最相近。superficial表面的,inadequate不足的,inevitable不可避免的。

  3. C dimly昏暗地。lit:此处是light(照亮)的过去分词,也有人把它叫做形容词。A dimly lit lane:一条昏暗的胡同。faintly:暗淡地,微弱地,与dimly意思相近。inadequately不足。hardly几乎不。I can hardly hear him.我几乎听不到他说话。sufficiently:充分地,足够地。

  1. A appalling表示条件之差使人感到吃惊。dreadful有类似的意义。如:My financial situation is dreadful.此句改用appalling也是可以的。Bad, unpleasant和poor都可以跟condition搭配。因此可以说:They have been living under bad conditions for two years. They have been living under unpleasant conditions for two years. They have been living under poor conditions for two years.注意:appalling conditions蕴涵bad(或unpleasant或poor)conditions.但反向的蕴涵是不成立的。用句通俗的话说,是appalling conditions必定是bad(或unpleasant或poor)conditions,但,是bad(或unpleasant或poor)conditions未必都是appalling conditions.也就是说,appalling跟bad, unpleasant和poor在意义上存在着明显的差别。注意:如果用bad或poor替换appalling,生成的都是错误的句子。

  2. B anyhow的一种意思是:不管其他句子所说的,本命题为真。可以看出,该词用在该句中非常合适,因为I wasn't qualified for the job really是“不管其他句子所说的”,I got it这个命题是真的。又如:I am coming anyhow, no matter what others say.其中的no matter what others say是说:不管其他人怎么说。I am coming这个命题是真的。Anyway在绝大多数情况中表达的意义跟anyhow都相同,因而二者常可替换。Anyhow有一种意思是后面所说的支持前面所说的,在这一种意思上,它等于anyhow可由besides替换。但练习题中的anyhow不是这个意思。anyhow也可用来结束会话,这也是well的一个功能。如:Anyhow, thanks a lot. Bye bye.但练习题中的anyhow不是用来结束会话的,因而不能由well替换。

  3. C attain有通过努力取得了某种东西或达到某种状态的意思。如:He attained the position of minister. They were unable to attain their objectives. achieve的意思是通过努力取得或达到某种目标,意思跟attain很接近,因而可由后者替换。reached也有“达到”的意思,但它本身并不含“需要通过努力”,因而它不可替代achieved.下面举一个reach用法的例子:The process of political change in South Africa has reached the stage where it is irreversible. reap是“收获,获得”的意思。The painting depicted a group of peasants reaping a harvest of fruits and vegetables. You'll soon begin to reap the benefits of being fitter. take也有“获得,取得”的意思,但它不能跟success搭配。

  4. D capability:能力,力量。又如:Now we have the capability to defending our country, all thanks to our own efforts. The country has the capability to defeat any aggressor. ability:能力,本领。From each according to his abilities, to each according to his work. ability和capability在意义上有相同的一面,因而在一定语境中可以互换。可以看出,ability和capability在搭配上是有差别的,前者只可跟to搭配,但后者既可跟to又可跟of搭配。二者的形容词分别是able和capable: I ought to be able to live on my salary. She was perfectly capable of taking care of herself.注意:capable只能跟of而不能跟to搭配。不难看出,词的意义不决定句法结构。strength:力量;优点。Their military strength has gone down because their air force has proved to be an effective force.此句中的strength可由capacity替代而不改变句子的意义。possibility:可能性。

  5. A in conjunction with:共同。together with具有相同的意思,用together代入后,所生成的也是一个在语法上正确的句子。in succession:接连发生,不跟with,如:He had missed five dinners in succession. in alliance with:结盟。They are now in a position to govern the state in alliance with either the Free Democrats or the Green Party. in connection with:在……一起;相关。13 men were questioned in connection with the murder.

  6. B credible:可信的。convincing:可信的。That is the least convincing excuse that you could offer. convincing可替换credible而不改变句子的意义。workable:可行的,行得通的。Your plan is workable. practical:实际的,现实的。He is weak in practical matters. reliable:靠得住的。John is a reliable man.

  7. C diligent:勤奋的,努力的。hardworking:勤奋的,努力的。Jack was hardworking and energetic. ambitious:雄心勃勃的;有野心的。Chris is so ambitious, so determined to do it all. lazy:懒惰的。I was too lazy to read music. clever:聪明的。She is beautiful and clever.

  8. D diverse:多种多样的;不同的。varied:多种多样的;不同的。It is important that your diet is varied and balanced. colorful:多色的;绚丽的。People in this small town wear colorful clothes. attractive:迷人的;吸引人的。She is both attractive and intelligent. flexible:灵活的。My schedule is flexible.

  9. A faulty:有错误的;模棱两可的。wrong:有错误的;有毛病的。Cheating is always wrong. ambiguous:歧义的;模棱两可的。This sentence is ambiguous. unclear:不清楚。His itinerary is still unclear. unbelievable:不可信的。I find it unbelievable that people can accept this sort of behavior.

  10. B gorgeous:好极了;美丽的。lovely:可爱的;美丽的。The girl is lovely. ridiculous:可笑的。It was an absolutely ridiculous decision. magnificent:壮丽的;宏伟的。There is a magnificent country house near the river. peculiar:奇特的;奇怪的。This house is peculiar in lots of ways.这些词都可替换,所生成的句子语法上都是正确的。相比之下,lovely最接近gorgeous.

  11. C persist:坚持;持续。continue:持续。She continued the work day after day. insist:坚持;坚持主张。My family insisted that I should not give in, but stay and fight. persevere:坚持。Despite the failure of his early experiments, the scientist persevered in his research. resist:反抗;顶住。The nation was able to resist the invasion. Insist和persist在意义上并不完全相同。insist缺乏“持续”这个义项。persevere也缺少“持续”这个义项。因此,正确的选择是continue.“坚持”与“持续”在意义上似乎很接近,但在语义上的判别是很明显的。“坚持”至少要求有生命的东西作主语,但“持续”就没有这个要求。

  12. D regulate:调整;控制。control:控制。She also had a temper, but she controlled it. fight:搏斗;战斗。More units to fight forest fires are planned. abolish:废除。The whole system should be abolished. remove:除去;消除。Most of her fears have been removed.

  13. A scatter:分散;散布;消散。separate:分散;分离。We didn't separate until nightfall. flee:逃走;消失。The robbers tried to flee, but they were caught. depart:离开;出发。We are ready to depart. spread:展开;散布。The rumour quickly spread through the village. spread与scatter有相同的义项-“散布”。但此处只能是“分散”的意思。

  14. B standpoint:立场;观点。point of view:观点;看法。The novel is shown from the girl's point of view. position:位置;立场。The union may shift its position on the question. knowledge:知识。To my knowledge, he owns three houses, and he may own more. opinion:看法;意见。In my opinion, this book is the best book on the subject.虽然position也有“立场”的意思,但不能说from my position.同样地我们也不能说from my opinion.

  3. A demolish这个动词的意思就是“拆毁,毁掉,推翻”,故pull down是正确答案。其他几个选项均可和houses搭配,但意义和原句不同。rebuild是“重建”,renovate“修复,整修”,whitewash“粉刷”。

  4. D adverse这个词的意思是“不利的,逆的”,如:adverse wind(逆风),adverse criticism(非难),adverse situation(不利的形势),adverse balance of trade(贸易逆差)。原句的意思是:广告公司对公众对招贴画的不利反应感到惊奇。在四个选项中adverse和unfavorable同义。另外三个选项都可以用于修饰public reaction, delayed是“延误的”,quick“迅速的”,quick“迅速的”,positive“正面的,肯定的”和adverse恰恰相反。

  5. B concise的意思是“简明的”,如:a concise dictionary(一部简明词典)。long and detailed的意思正好相反,又长又详尽;comprehensive是“全面的”,professional“专业的”。

  6. C courteous是“有礼貌的,谦恭的”,在四个选项中只有respectful和它意义相近。respectable和respectful的区别是前者是“可尊敬的”,后者是“恭敬的,尊重别人的”,如:a respectable gentlemen(一位值得尊敬的先生),a respectful bow(充满敬意的一鞠躬)。efficient的意思是“有效率的”,well-informed“有学问的”。

  7. D invaluable这个词从形式上看似乎是valuable(贵重的,有价值的)的反革命义词,其实不然,它的意思恰恰是“无法估计的,十分宝贵的”,故应选extremely useful.其他的搭配还有an invaluable treasure(无价之宝),invaluable advice(很有用的忠告),invaluable heritage(宝贵的遗产)。选项A和invaluable反义,选项B的意思是“确实很实用”,选项C的意思是“几乎没有”。

  8. C 此句的意思是“我认为在这里建一家豪华宾馆的想法简直是荒唐”。Insane是sane的反义词,意思是“精神错乱的,疯狂的”,如:He went insane at last.(他最终发疯了)。故该词和mad, crazy同义。reasonable和sensible的意思都是“合理的,有理的”,故都和insane相反。

  9. A exhaustive是“透彻的,彻底的”的意思,如:exhaustive study(透彻的研究),exhaustive investigation(深入的调查),所以extremely thorough是正确答案。Long and boring(长得令人厌倦),superficial(表面的),unconvincing(不能使人信服的)均不合适。

  10. B ingenious:灵巧的,巧妙的,如:ingenious mind(机灵的头脑),ingenious machine(精巧的机器),ingenious tactics(巧妙的战术)等,故大致上和clever同义。effective是“有效的”,implausible(不合情理的),original(有新意的)。

  11. C 这句话的意思是“他看着招牌广告,心想不知自己是否有资格去应聘”。Eligible的意思是“有资格做……,符合做……的条件”,如:Anyone above the age of 18 is eligible to vote.(18岁以上的人都可以参加选举。)Not every resident here is eligible for the medical insurance provided by the community.(并非每一个本地的居民都有资格享受社区提供的医疗保险。)

  12. B vigorous:精力充沛的,有活力的,常用于人,如:a vigorous young man, 也可作“强有力的,强劲的,用力的”解,如:vigorous opponent强劲的对手,vigorous exercises运动量大的锻炼。hot-tempered是“脾气大的,性子烈的”意思,patient作形容词则是“耐心的”意思。

  13. A 本句的意思是“并非所有的成员国都遵循他们先前达成一致的原则。”abide by是个短语,意为“服从,遵守”,adhere to也是一个固定的短语,和stick to同义。abide by常见的搭配还有abide by the rule/the law/decision,如:The players all abided by the referee's decision although it was not really fair.其余的三个选项apply(应用),abandon(抛弃),adopt(采纳)均可以和principle搭配,但词义和abide by不合。

  14. C bias这个名词的意思是“偏袒,偏见”,without bias则是“公平地,公正地”的意思。fairly是形容词fair的副词形式,在这里是“公平地”的意思。当然,fairly也可以作“相当,还”解,表示程度,如:Your English is fairly good.(你的英语还不错。)外语教育网版权所有www.for68.com

  15. B terminate这个动词意为“结束”,可作及物或不及物动词用,如:We have decided to terminate our contract with your company.(我们已决定终止与贵公司的合同。)The forest terminates in a forest.(路的尽头是树林。)put an end to是个动词短语,如:Finally they put an end to the long-standing disputes.(最后他们终于结束了长期的争端。)resume(中断后重又开始),suspend(暂时中断),re-schedule(重新制定时间表)这三个动词都可以和construction搭配,但词义和terminate不相近。
