Extinction is difficult concept to grasp. It is an(26)concept. It’s not at all like the killing of individual lifeforms that can be renewedthrough normal processes of reproduction. Nor is it simply(27)numbers. Nor is it damage that can somehow be remedied or for which some substitute can be ound. Nor is it something that simply affects our own generation. 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 ( 疯狂) 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)。




详解:对话中女士对男士说酒店打来电话,说由于日程安排出了问题,他们不能承接宴会了,男士马上说他知道在High Street有一家印度餐馆,可以为团体客户提供特殊待遇,那里的食物很棒,房间也足够大。由此可知,男士的言外之意是说他们可以把宴会的地点改在他所推荐的印度餐馆。
9.What do we learn about the man’s daily life?
B.。详解:四个选项均以He开头,且均使用了一般现在时,可以推测本题考查内容与男士的日常生活有关。由各选项A.“他分担一些家务职责”、B.“他经常回家很晚,赶不上吃晚饭”、C.“他偶尔会为家人做饭”和D.“他有时会与朋友外出就餐”可以看出,本题的重点是男士通常是怎样解决晚餐的。其中,A.与其他三个选项的内容有较大差异,可以提前排除。对话中男士与女士见面时,男士告诉女士他正要回家,Susan正在家里等他回去吃晚餐,他不能总像平日里那样老是赶不上吃晚餐。for a change表达的意思是“改变一下”,既然男士今天要按时回家与家人一起共进晚餐,也就可以推测出他大多数时候是不按时回家吃晚餐的。

26.eternal。详解:空格位于不定冠词an和名词concept之间,应该填入以元音发音开头的形容词作定语,修饰名词concept。第一句提到物种灭绝是一个不容易理解的概念,而在下文提到,它与杀死那些可以再重生的单个生命形式不同,也就是说,  它是一个永远无法逆转的概念。eternal意为“永远的,永恒的”。
29.succeed。详解:空格位于状语从句中的谓语部分,由于前面的主语为复数,主句时态一般将来时,因此,空格内填人动词的一般现在时。由空格后的in coming centuries可知,此处要表达的意思是:不管在我们之后还有多少代人会继续生存,都不会再看到那些已经灭绝的物种了。succeed意为“接替,继承”。
30.on a vast scale。详解:空格所在句不缺少句子主要成分,因此,应填入副词或副词短语,充当句子的状语。上一段提到了灭绝,本段提到了人类对自然资源的浪费和破坏,这些都是大范围的行为。on a vast scale意为“大面积的,大范围的”。
31.As regards。详解:空格与其后的名词短语basic natural resources不是句子主干的一部分,因此需要填人介词,构成介词短语。上一句说到了人类对天空、大地和空气的污染,本句则提到了自然资源。As regards意为“至于,关于”。注意空格位于句首,As首字母需要大写。
32.used up。详解:空格位于句子的谓语部分,与are…being连在一起构成现在进行时的被动语态,表示“正在被……”,因此应该填入动词或动词词组。由but we are also rtfinin9可知,此处要表达的意思是:我们正在以疯狂的速度和手段将自然界中不可再生的资源消耗殆尽。used up意为“用光,消耗光”。注意使用动词的过去分词形式。
34.modification。详解:空格位于形容词cultural之后,应该填入名词,与cultural形成名词短语后,再通过OI?与historical change形成并列关系。与change“变化”相对应的词为modification。modification意为“修改,改变”。
