Nor is it something that could be remedied by some supernatural power. It is rather an(28)and final act for which there is no remedy on earth or in heaven. A species once extinct is gone forever. However many generations(29)us in coming centuries, none of them will ever see this species that we extinguish. Not only are we bringing about the extinction of life(30), we are also making the land and the air and the sea so toxic that the very conditions of life are being destroyed.(31)basic natural resources, not only are the nonrenewable resources being(32)in a frenzy ( 瘋狂) of processing,consuming, and(33), but we are also mining much of our renewable resources, such as the very soil itself on which terrestrial (地球上的) life depends.
The change that is taking place on the earth and in our minds is one of the greatest changes ever to take place in human affairs, perhaps the greatest, since what we are talking about is not simply another historical change or cultural(34), but a change of geological and biological as well as psychological order of(35)。




詳解:對話中女士對男士說酒店打來電話,說由于日程安排出了問題,他們不能承接宴會了,男士馬上說他知道在High Street有一家印度餐館,可以為團體客戶提供特殊待遇,那里的食物很棒,房間也足夠大。由此可知,男士的言外之意是說他們可以把宴會的地點改在他所推薦的印度餐館。

9.What do we learn about the man’s daily life?
B.。詳解:四個選項均以He開頭,且均使用了一般現在時,可以推測本題考查內容與男士的日常生活有關。由各選項A.“他分擔一些家務職責”、B.“他經常回家很晚,趕不上吃晚飯”、C.“他偶爾會為家人做飯”和D.“他有時會與朋友外出就餐”可以看出,本題的重點是男士通常是怎樣解決晚餐的。其中,A.與其他三個選項的內容有較大差異,可以提前排除。對話中男士與女士見面時,男士告訴女士他正要回家,Susan正在家里等他回去吃晚餐,他不能總像平日里那樣老是趕不上吃晚餐。for a change表達的意思是“改變一下”,既然男士今天要按時回家與家人一起共進晚餐,也就可以推測出他大多數時候是不按時回家吃晚餐的。

26.eternal。詳解:空格位于不定冠詞an和名詞concept之間,應該填入以元音發音開頭的形容詞作定語,修飾名詞concept。第一句提到物種滅絕是一個不容易理解的概念,而在下文提到,它與殺死那些可以再重生的單個生命形式不同,也就是說,  它是一個永遠無法逆轉的概念。eternal意為“永遠的,永恒的”。
29.succeed。詳解:空格位于狀語從句中的謂語部分,由于前面的主語為復數,主句時態一般將來時,因此,空格內填人動詞的一般現在時。由空格后的in coming centuries可知,此處要表達的意思是:不管在我們之后還有多少代人會繼續生存,都不會再看到那些已經滅絕的物種了。succeed意為“接替,繼承”。

31.As regards。詳解:空格與其后的名詞短語basic natural resources不是句子主干的一部分,因此需要填人介詞,構成介詞短語。上一句說到了人類對天空、大地和空氣的污染,本句則提到了自然資源。As regards意為“至于,關于”。注意空格位于句首,As首字母需要大寫。
32.used up。詳解:空格位于句子的謂語部分,與are…being連在一起構成現在進行時的被動語態,表示“正在被……”,因此應該填入動詞或動詞詞組。由but we are also rtfinin9可知,此處要表達的意思是:我們正在以瘋狂的速度和手段將自然界中不可再生的資源消耗殆盡。used up意為“用光,消耗光”。注意使用動詞的過去分詞形式。
34.modification。詳解:空格位于形容詞cultural之后,應該填入名詞,與cultural形成名詞短語后,再通過OI?與historical change形成并列關系。與change“變化”相對應的詞為modification。modification意為“修改,改變”。
