7. The pigeon flew from one garage to the other _______ three minutes.

  a. in           b. into         c. with         d. on

解答:

3. d。d. his 既可以做所有格形容词又可以做所有格代词,意思是他的,相当于一个名词,本句只有选d,句子The garage is his才符合语法。

4. b。a. that's so(真的,是那样);c. because(由于,因为)常用来引导原因状语从句;d.for(由于……的缘故,因为)用于提出证据或说明。本句只有选b. That's why(这就是为什么)才可以说明理由,与前一句构成因果关系,而其他3个选择都不符合逻辑。

5. c。本句是一般过去时的疑问句,句中已经给出助动词did,只需要填一个动词原形即可。只有c. buy 是 动词原形,其他3个都不是。

6. d。本句是针对距离的远近来提问的。a. long ago... until 不是说明距离的,long ago从不和until连用;b. long …away 是说明距离的,但应该是long…away from…;c. away…till 中away 不应该和till连用,不符合习惯用法,从意义上讲不通;只有d. far…from (离……远)是说明距离远近的,符合英语中惯用法,所以选d。

7. a。本句需要选一个介词用在three minutes 之前,表示所用的时间。只有a. in合适,而其他3个选择都不能和three minutes 构成表示时间的短语,所以选a。

解答: 

 8. b。本句需要选表示“另一个”意思的词修饰garage。a. another(adj.) 有另一个的含义,但它前面不能带其他的修饰词,如冠词,所有格形容词等;c. else(adj.其他的,别的,另外)做形容词时应该放在它所修饰的词和代词之后;d. different(adj.不同的)与题目意思不符合;只有b. other(另外的,其他的)可以带其他的修饰成分,如the, his等,也可以用在名词前面,所以选b。

9. c。本句需要选出一个与前一句中的动词get 意思相同的词。a. take(拿去,携带),b. receive(收到),d. find(发现,找到)都不是get 的同义词,只有c. obtain(获得),所以选c。

10. b。本句需要选出与前一句的动词短语send requests for 的意思相同的词或短语。a. asked(问,打听); b. asked for(请求);c. begged(乞讨);d. pleased(喜欢,使……高兴),只 有b. asked for有请求的意思,意思最接近,所以选b。

11. a。本句主要想说明紧急信函应如何发出。B. slowly(慢慢地)与题目意思相反;c. by hand(用手)不符合题目意思;d. largely(许多,大量)更不符合题目意思;只有a. quickly(快速地)符合题目意思。

12. d。本句是要解释前一句中的private(私人的,私有的)。a. general(普遍的,全体的);b. spare(多余的,空闲的);c. secret(秘密的,私下的,神秘的);这3个选择都与private意思不符合,只有d. his own(他自己的)词意思最接近,所以选d。
