36. A 根据前面的句子可知,男孩并不是很喜欢吃水果,因此如果要他选择的话,他更喜欢吃一块巧克力。

37. C 根据下面的句子“禁果诱人”可判断,上下文之间是转折关系,所以选择but。

38. C 根据下文第50个空所在的句子中出现的hungry一词可判断,此处选择hungrier,表示“他越看那只苹果就越觉得肚子饿”。

39. B 为了够到那只苹果,小男孩踮起脚尖,尽可能把身体伸展到最高的程度。expand扩大,扩充,扩展;stretch伸展,舒展;swing摆动,摇动;pull拉,扯,拔。

42. C 每次跳到最高的时候,小男孩就伸长了胳膊去够苹果。at the top of在……顶部或顶端。

43. D 根据下文可知,小男孩最终没有摘到苹果。out of reach是固定短语,意为“手够不着, 达不到”。

44. B 根据下文内容可知,小男孩没有放弃,他想如果自己踩在某些东西上面就能够到苹果了。

45. A 小男孩身上背着书包,可他不想弄坏里面装的东西。break在此处表示“弄坏,折断”。

46. D 根据上下文内容可知,为了找到能踩在脚下的东西,小男孩四处环顾。look around四处环顾。

47. B 小男孩希望自己能够找到一个旧箱子,一块大石头,或者,如果顺利的话,能找到一架梯子。for luck为了吉利,为了祈求好运;with luck如果一切顺利的话;其他两个介词不能与luck搭配。

49. B 没有办法摘到苹果,小男孩只好失望地走开。walk away走开。

54. D 结合上文内容可知,小男孩清醒地认识到自己已经没有其他法子可用了,苹果也不会得到了。

55. A 小男孩的反省也是文章主题的升华:面对无法解决的问题,我们可以做到的就是改变自己的情感态度。
