Ⅰ. 单句语法填空

1.—Jack can’t concentrate on his lessons recently.

—Yes, that might account__for__his low score in the last test.

解析:句意:——最近杰克不集中精力学习。——是的,这可能是他上次考试得分低的原因。account for…“解释,是……的原因”符合句意。

2.The realization of the Chinese dream won’t affect dreams of other countries.__On__ the contrary, it helps them realize their own dreams.

解析:句意:中国梦的实现不会影响其他国家的梦想,相反地,这会帮助他们实现梦想。由句意可知,选on the contrary,意为“相反地”。

3.__Whenever__ I have to give a speech, I get extremely nervous before I start.


4.Exactly __when__ the potato was introduced into Europe is uncertain, but it was probably around 1565.

解析:本题考查名词性从句引导词。句意:马铃薯是在什么时候被引进到欧洲的不确定,但是可能是在1565年左右。分析结构可知,此处是主语从句的引导词。根据but并列句中的关键词 around 1565可以知道,此处表示“时间”,故要用when引导主语从句。

5.The professor thought that the idea the young engineer brought __up__ was worth considering.

解析:句意:教授认为那位年轻的工程师提出的想法值得考虑。分析句子结构可知,“the young engineer ________”是定语从句,修饰先行词the idea,且根据句意可知,bring up“提出”符合句意。

6.—What will we do tomorrow?

—It is unclear whether the meeting will go __ahead__ as planned.

解析:句意:——我们明天做什么?——尚不清楚会议是否会按计划举行。go ahead进行,符合句意。

7.“Every time you eat a sweet, drink green tea.” This is __what__ my mother used to tell me.


8.There is much chance __that__ Bill will recover from his injury in time for the race.

解析:There is much chance that…为常用句型,意为“很有可能……”。that引导的从句说明chance的内容,等同于同位语从句。

9.I found Jane __seated__(seat) at the desk, __doing__(do) her homework carefully.

解析:句意:我发现简坐在桌旁认真地做作业。seat为及物动词,用法为be seated或seat oneself,所以Jane后可接seated或sitting作宾补;doing her homework carefully是现在分词短语作伴随状语。

10.—Could I use this dictionary?

—Just go__ahead__.It’s a spare one.

解析:本题考查情景交际。句意:“我能用一下这本词典吗?”“________,这是多余的一本。”根据“It’s a spare one.”可知,后者应该是同意前者使用这本词典。just go ahead意为“用吧”,表示同意,符合语境。

11.There is no greater pleasure than lying on my back in the middle of the grassland,__staring__(stare) at the night sky.

解析:本题考查非谓语动词。句意:没有什么能比躺在草地中央凝视着夜空让人感到更高兴的事儿了。根据句中的on my back可知,lying的动作由“我”发出,而stare的逻辑主语也是“我”,“凝视夜空”的动作由“我”主动发出,故用现在分词短语作状语,表示伴随。

12.Even the best writers sometimes find themselves __lost__(lose) for words.

解析:考查非谓语动词。句意:即使最好的作家有时发现自己无以言辞。be lost for words“说不出话来”。然后结合“find+宾语+宾语补足语”结构可知,此处用lost作宾语补足语。

13.Whenever I made mistakes, the teacher pointed them out with __patience__ (patient).

解析:句意:每当我出错时,老师总是耐心地给我指出。with patience耐心地。

14.Born into a family with three brothers,David was brought __up__ to value the sense of sharing.

解析:本题考查动词短语在具体语境中的应用。句意:生在一个有三个兄弟的家庭里,戴维被教育要珍惜分享意识。bring up“教育,抚养”。

15.He seems to be giving the impression that he didn’t enjoy himself in Paris.__On__ the contrary, he had a wonderful time.

解析:句意:他好像是在给人一个印象:他在巴黎玩得不快乐。正相反,他玩得很开心。on the contrary“正相反”。

4.It’s__amazing__(amaze) how much pleasure you get out of the simple things in life.


5.I did hear that the Bank of England__had_issued__(issue) two notes in this amount.

解析:考查动词时态。issue发生在“did hear”之前,故用过去完成时态。

6.I’m so sorry, sir, so sorry,__but__I cannot change this bank note.

解析:考查固定句式“I’m sorry, but…”此结构中but不表示转折,而是引出下文,进行解释、说明。

7.Henry is surprised but the owner and the waiter are__shocked__(shock).


8.I wonder, Mr Adams,__whether/if__you’d mind us asking a few questions.
