2. I‘ve been telling you_____not to do that，but you neve listened to me.That’s why you got into trouble.
a.at times b.time before time c.time and again d.for the time being
解析： time and again相当于“time and time again”，意思是“一次又一次地，再三地”，正合题意。at times指“有时，偶尔”。for the time being意思是“暂时”。不存在b项这种表达法。
3. _____he speaks softly is no proof that he is kind.
a.Since b.As c.That d.Because
解析： that做主语从句he speaks softly的引导词，没有实际意义。
4. Being extremely_____to the cold，I do not like skating.
a.sensitive b.senseless c.insensitive d.sensible
5. I don‘t feel like_____anything now.
a.to eat b.eating c.having eaten d.to be eating
解析： “feel like+doing sth.”，表示“想做某事”，后面只能跟动名词形式。
6. I will do the clearing if you see_____the lunch.
a.out b.off c.to d.through
解析： see to sth.“料理，负责处理”；see sb.out of“送某人到外面去”；see sb. off“送站（在火车站、机场、码头等地）送人”；see through sb.or sth.“看穿某人或某事”。从句意看，显然选项c意思合适。
7. It was not until she had finished all her work_____.
a.did she return b.that she returned c.when she returned d.that did she return
解析： “it is not until that……”是强调句型，“that”引导的从句用正常语序，而以“not until……”开头的句子中谓语要用倒装形式。
8. He didn‘t seem to mind_____the music while he was studying.
a.them listening b.them to listen to c.when she returned d.that did she return
解析： “mind+动名词”表示介意某事。表示介意某人做某事用“mind one/one‘s doing sth.”。另外，listen是不及物动词，后面必须跟介词to.
9. It seems as if the sun_____round the earth since it rises in the east and sets in the west.
a.circles b.is circling c.has been circling d.were circling
解析： “as if”“似乎，好象”，太阳并不是绕着地球转，所以后面应该与事实相反的假设，要用虚拟语气。需要特别指明的是：“如果是一般的客观规律的陈述，则用一般现在时”。

a.Because b.With c.By d.Without
11.If he_____the storekeeper‘s scissors，he would have forgotten to buy a pair.

14.His article is better than_____in the class.
a.anyone‘s b.anyone else c.anyone else’s d.anyone‘s else
解析： anyone else指除了句中提到的“他”之外的任何人，本句进行比较的是“文章”而不是人，因此选用不定式所有格anyone else‘s.
15.There isn‘t much milk_____is left in the bottle.
a.what b.which c.whatever d.that
16.I can speak_____German.
a.either Russian nor b.neither Russian or c.no Russian nor d.neither Russian nor

a.ready b.willing c.reluctant d.hesitant
18.He drove fast and arrived an hour_____of schedule.
a.in advance b.ahead c.abreast d.in front
解析： ahead of“提前，预先”，ahead of schedule“比规定时间提前”，正合题意。本句意为“他开得很快，比规定时间早到了1小时。”in advance“事先，提前”，后面不跟介词。in front of“在……前面”，表示位置，所以此处不合题意。
19.The girl who found the ring received a generous_____of five pounds.
a.prize b.allowance c.income d.reward
20.William has cut his smoking_____to five cigarettes a day.
a.down b.short c.away d.off

21.Those people_____a general understanding of the present situation.
a.lack of b.are lacking of c.lack d.are in lack
解析： lack （vt.） “缺乏，缺少”，直接跟宾语。作名词用时用lack of.
22.It‘s_____my power to make final decision on the matter.
a.off b.out c.above d.beyond
解析： beyond“在……之外”，beyond one‘s power“超出某人的能力”。
23.“It was very cold testerday.”

24._____you understand this rule，you‘ll have no difficulty in dealing with such problems.
a.While b.Though c.Unless d.Once
25.Your bike needs_____.You‘d better do i right now.
a.clean b.to be clean c.being cleaned d.to clean
解析： need+to be done或need+doing都表示被动的动作。类似的动词还有want，require等。他们都是后面跟动名词的主动式或不定式的被动式。
26.The driver pulled_____at the traffic lights.
a.in b.off c.up d.out
解析： pull up“（车、马）停下”，符合句意。pull in“（火车）缓缓进站，（车辆）靠边停下”；pull out“（车、船）驶出，（司机）超车”；pull off“努力实现（计划等）”。

a.for fear that he will fail b.for fear he should fail c.lest he fails d.for case he would fail

30.The teacher gave_____the examination paper.
a.off b.over c.up d.out
解析： give out“分发，用完，耗尽”，符合句意。give off“发放出（气、光、热等）”；give up“放弃”；give over“交付”。
The agricultural revolution in the 19th century involved two things：the invention of labor-saving machinery and the deyelopment of scientific agriculture.Labor-saving machinery naturally appeared first where labor was scarce.“In Europe，”said Thomas Jefferson，“the object is to make the most of their land，labor being abundant：here it is to make the most of our labor，land being abundant.”It was in America， therefore，that the great advances in 19th century agricultural machinery first came.
At the opening of the century，with the exception of a crude plow farmers could have carried pracically all of the existing agricultural implements on their backs；by1860，most of the machinery inuse today had been designed in an early form.The most important of the early inventions was the iron plow.As early as 1790 Charles Newbold of New Jersey had been working on the idea of a cast-iron plow and spent his entire fortune in introdueing his invention.The farmers，however，would have none of it，claiming that the iron poisoned the soil and made the weeds grow.Nevertheless，many people devoted their attention to the plow，until in 1869 James Oliver of South Bend，Indiana，turned out the first chilled-still plow.？
1. What is the main topic of the passage？
a.The need for agricultural advances to help feed a growing population.
b.The development of safer machines demanded by the labor movement.
c.Machinery that contributed to the agricultural revolution.
d.New Jersey as a leader in the agricultural revolution.
2. The expression “make the most of” in Line 4is closest in meaning to which of the following？
a.get the best yield from b.raise the price of c.make full use of d.earn a living on
解析： make the mast of意思是“充分利用”，意同“make full use of”。
3. Which of the following can be inferred from what Thomas Jefferson said？
a.Europe was changing more quickly than America.
b.Europe had greater need of farm machinery than America did.
c.America was finally rnning out of good farmland.
d.There was a shortage of workers on American farm.
4. It can be inferred that the waord“here”in Line 4 refers to_____.
a.Europe b.America c.New Jersey d.Indiana
解析： “In Europe”，said Thomas Jefferson，“the object is to make the most of their land，labor being abundant；here it is to make the most of our labor，land being abundant.”It was in America，therefore，that the great advances in 19th century agricultural machinery first came.从黑体部分可以清楚看出here指代“美国”。here与in Europe构成对比句子结构。
5. What point is the autor making by stating that farmers could carry nearly all their tools on their backs？
a.Farmers had few tools before the agricultural revolution
b.Americans were traditionally self-reliant.
c.Life on the farm was extremely difficult.
d.New tools were designed to be portable.
There are many problems connected with space travel.The first and greatest of themis gravity.If you let your pencil drop to the floor，you can see gravity in action.Everything is held down to the earth by magnetic force.A rocket must go at least 2，500miles an hour to take anyone beyond the gravity of the earth into space.
Another problem is the strain（作用力） that a person is subjected to when a rocket leaves the ground.Anything that is not moving tends to resist movement.As the rocket leaves the ground，it pushes upward violently，and the person in the onse cone（驾驶舱） is pushed back against the chair.During this thrust，gravity exerts a force on the body equal to nine times its normal force.
Once out of the earth‘s gravity，an astronaut is affected by still another problem——weight-lessness.Here，if a pencil drops，it does not fall.If a glass of water is turned upside down，the water will not fall out.Our bodies，which are accustomed to gravity，tend to become upset in weightless conditions.Recent long flights have shown that the body needs special execise in a spaceship.
Astronauts could also be affected by boredom and loneliness.Some of them might have to sit in their spaceships for nonths with little to do and no one to talkto.Space trips to distant planets or the nearest stars mighttake many years.It is possible that some trips to even take a lifetime.So future astronauts must be trained to endure ling periods of “inactivity and solitude”。
6. Which of the following is NOTmentioned in the passage？
a.The earth‘s gravity b.Weightlessness c.Space sickness d.Loneliness
7. In weightless condition，what will happen？
a.If a pencil drops，it will fall b.If a glass of water is turned upside down，the water will fall out
c.Our bodies tend to become upset d.It‘s easier for our bodies to move around
8. The quality that the future astronauts must have is_____.
a.being brave b.not being overweight c.enduring solitude d.being passive
9. Which of the following is beyond the gravity of the earth？
a.A pencil b.An animal c.A man on the earth d.A man in a rocket moving3，000miles per hour
10. When a rocket leaves the ground，the gravity_____.
a.is equal to the normal one？
b.is less strong than the normal one？
c.is much stronger than the normal one
d.is relatively smaller
1.should 2.future 3.group 4.tooth 5.decision
