  51 B  该段中有这样一个短语“particularly difficult to catch”(很难找到他),“well known for keeping himself to himself”是“以与世隔绝为大家熟知”。可以看出,根据下文,用“well known”最为合适。

  52 A  hold:抱住;拿住。run into和bump into都有“撞上”的意思,这是不由一个人的主观意志所能控制的。

  53 D  对第一段做解释时,提到了上下文可以帮助我们做出正确的判断。紧随其后的是“It came as a complete surprise.”(这个奖来得很突然)。“shock”和“surprise”意思很接近,因此选择“shocked”是对的。

  54 c like作“喜欢”解时是动词,而此处需要的是一个名词。devotion后面跟“to”,attraction是“吸引”的意思。填入后意思不太合适。因此只有“love”是正确的选项。

  55 A despite引导的是一个反比,主旬中有一个“easy”,那么它的反义词就是“difficult”。

  56 B    “幻make a breakthrough”等于“t0 break through”。是周定的搭配。

  57 c    “t0 take one's place”是“处于某种位子”,  是固定的说法。

  58 C  这里需要填入的是一个不及物动词,“received”,“obtained”,“had”都是及物动词,只有“won”既可作及物动词,又可作不及物动词。

  59 A  在这四个动词中,只有“deal”可跟“with”搭配。

  60 D  整个句子说的是:在处理这个国家依然存在的暴力,犯罪和种族隔离问题,他的书能使一般人从内部理解种族隔离。“从……角度”常用“from…”。

  61 D  “casts its shadow”是“给……带来影响”,是固定的搭配。

  62 B    “think twice”相当于汉语中的“三思而后行”。正如汉语中不说“二思而后行”一样,英文中也不说“think three times”,这是固定的说法。

  63 c  该句子的意思是,他作品中的纯洁性反映到了他的个人生活中,“mirrored”是“反映”的意思。

  64 A  从下文“far greater than the things he has given up”(比起他放弃的东西要多得多)来看,选择“contributed”是对的。全句说的是:但是,他对文学、文化、南非人民所做出的贡献比起他放弃的东西要多得多。

  65 D  其他三个动词填入后生成的都是不合格的句子。
