2.(2011•浙江卷)完形填空

Music has always been a great love of mine and, in my 20s, when my 21 was more manageable , I 22 ten years as a professional singer in restaurants, playing and singing folk songs. 23 that was years ago and times have changed. 24 I live with mother on a country farm.

Two years ago, I decided that I would need to have some kind of extra work to 25 my disability pension (残疾抚恤金). 26 I needed to sleep in the afternoons, I was limited in my 27 . I decided that I would consider 28 to singing in restaurants.

My family are all musicians, so I was 29 when I went into our local music store. I explained that I wanted to sing again but using recorded karaoke music. I knew that discs were very expensive and I really didn’t have a lot of 30 to get started. And 31 you find only three to four songs out of ten on a disc that you can 32 use.

When I told the owner of the shop about my 33 ; he gave me a long thoughtful 34. “This means a lot to you, doesn’t it?” he said. “Come with me.”

He led me 35 the crowded shop and to a bench with a large professional karaoke box on it. He placed his large hand 36 on his treasure and said, “I have 800 karaoke songs in here. You can take your 37 and I’ll record them for you. That should get you started.”

I 38 . Thanking him, I made a time with him to listen to all the songs and choose 39 that I could sing. I have come full circle with his help.

His 40 still warms my heart and makes me do just that bit extra, when I have the chance.

【点评】2011年高考英语浙江卷完形填空部分原文节选于读者文摘(Reader'sDigest)澳大利亚版,考题略有删节,并替换掉原文中超过高考范围的词汇,采取同义词替换的手段使原文表述通畅。所选文章延续历年出题模式,以记叙文为题材,选取作者在生命中不平凡的阶段受到陌生人帮助的事实,歌颂和赞扬人间真情和助人的美德。

【解析】
21题,属于上文提示法,首句中出现ill,此选项应是ill的同义表达,故选D.sickness。

22题,属于上文提示法,上句出现病情可以manageable,所以作者应该是享受那段过去的美好时光,故选B.enjoyed。此选项在2009年全国一卷完形填空部分第41题出现过,且也为正确选项。

23题,属于下文解释法,下文出现发生改变,结合首句作者生病,可推出作者表达的是不幸的情绪,故选C.unfortunately。此选项为高考完形填空中的的高频选项。

24题,属于转折对比法,上文出现yearsago和changed,因此推出此题应回归现实,故选A.now。此选项在2009年浙江卷完形填空部分第37题出现过,且也为正确选项。

25题,属于固定搭配法,addupto总计,makeupfor弥补,补偿,getridof处理,摆脱,takeadvantageof利用,此题应选B.makeupfor。此选项考生不应陌生,2009年浙江卷完形填空部分第21题D选项曾出现过此词,可见背历年考题中的选项部分的重要性。

26题,属于逻辑关系法,此法多用于句子与句子之间,解决连词的问题。此题因为作者下午需要睡觉,所以受到限制。故选B.As。

27题,属于上文解释法,第三段首句提到作者打算做某事,但由于病情,下午需要睡觉,所以选择受限,故选C.choices。

28题,属于前后照应法,上文提到过几年之前唱歌的事实,此处再次出现要去唱歌,故选D.goingback。

29题,属于中文代入法,全家都是音乐家,所以走进音像店会被认出,故选A.recognized。

30题,属于AandB法,这是并列结构,要求前后词性与词义要相似,几乎在每年的高考完形中都会考查这个知识点。本题and之前说东西很贵,之后理应推出没有足够的钱,故选A.money。

31题,属于反义多一对,即四个选项中有一组反义词,答案多在这组反义词中出现。此题C和D构成反义结构,根据文章信息,故选D.often。

32题,属于中文代入法,实际上一张光盘里的十首歌也只有三/四首可以用,故选A.actually。

33题,属于上文提示法,上文中作者有提到过想再次唱歌的这个想法,故选C.idea。

34题,属于同义辨析法,此考查点多在四级考试完形填空部分中出现,在2008年高考英语浙江卷第26题也曾考查过,当年的难度系数约为0.32。此题中的B.view强调的是眺望风景,C.look强调看的眼神,D.sight强调视力,本文店主深深地看了作者,属于眼神之间的交流,故选C.look。

35题,属于固定搭配法,店主带领作者穿过拥挤的店铺,从空间穿过,故选D.through。

36题,属于感情色彩法,此法多用于解决形容词或副词。下文出现treasure,因此可以推出店主对自己的宝物爱不释手,心爱地触摸,故选B.lovingly。

37题,属于固定搭配法,takeyourpick,美国俚语,随你挑选的意思,故选A.pick。

38题,属于语法识别法,近几年高考完形填空部分逐步淡化语法点考查,一般只会涉及一道。C.shouldhavecried,本应该做的事情而没有做,放在原文中过于牵强,而本题是作者受到店主的感激,非常感动,本可以哭但没有哭,故选D.couldhavecried。

39题,属于寻找重复法,31题与32题之前曾出现onlythreetofoursongs...canuse,对应...couldsing,故选B.theones。

40题,属于主旨概况法,即所选选项要与原文中心相一致。本文详细描述店主对作者的帮助,店主的善举感动作者,故选C.kindness。
