    Q1

    The New York Knicks led most of the ball game because of the continued ____ play of David Lee, who had a dunk, a fast-break layup and a 17-foot jump shot.

    A)assertive B)distinctive

    我選B,解作"特殊的";但看到有本參考書選A,解作"自信的"。A語意合嗎?

    因為修飾的對象是play,不是某個人物,所以不宜用assertive(有自信)。

    Q2:

    Every change of season, every change of weather, every hour of the day produces some change in the magical hues and shape of these mountains; and they are regarded by all good wives, far and near, as perfect_____.

    A)indicators D)barometers

    我查字典解釋,感覺兩個語意都可以

    indicator

    a sign that shows you what sth is like or how a situation is changing

    Ex: These atmospheric waves are a reliable indicator of whether.

    barometer

    an instrument for measuring air pressure to show when the weather will change

    從上下文來看只有會隨著外界狀況變動的barometer較合適用來做類比。indicator可能沒有變動的功能。

    Q3:

    Security has been stepped up at airports following a recent string of _____

    B)political assassinations C)terrorist acts

    兩個感覺都可以,要選哪個?

    在機場發生恐怖活動比政治謀殺較合理,而且security這個字主要是針對terrorist的。 宜選C。

    Q4:

    The United Nations has condemned ____ committed by the rebels.

    B)atrocities C)assassinations

    兩個感覺都可以,要選哪個?

    叛亂分子主要是以殘忍的戰爭手段在作亂,不是暗殺。宜選B。

    Q5:

    The United States has promised several millions of dollars in _____ to help rebuild that country devastated by recent earthquake.

    B)foreign aid C)transltional aid

    對外援助或是過渡援助感覺都可以,要選哪個?

    有transitional government(過渡的政府),但應該沒有所謂的過渡援助,宜選foreign aid(援外計畫)。

    Q1:看了全文,用assertive應該只是記者自己的判斷,因為從報導的全文來看,並無明確的事證可以用來證明Lee是assertive的(沒有看到他在遭到什麼樣的打擊後,還能保持實力)。因為他led most of the ball game,可能是指多場比賽,都是這個人領軍,應該是表現好,才能得到這種機會。就本句而言,後面接著提出who had a dunk, a fast-break layup and a 17-foot jump shot,所以從邏輯來看,應是指表現好。

    Q5:選transitional aid應該是強調這是暫時性的,時間較短是一個重要因素。

    我想這種文意填空,都應讓讀者看了全段文章,才能做一個決定(不會只用一句來考)。因為放在普通名詞前的形容詞,是將這個名詞的範圍加以限制。如果這個形容詞代表的是作者主觀的看法時,作者還需要提供客觀的資訊來支持,否則讀者難以認同。
