阅读模拟题(一)

A history of longand effortless success can be a dreadfulhandicap, but, if properly handled, itmay become a driving force. When theUnited States entered just such a glowingperiod after the end of the SecondWorld War, it had a market eight timeslarger than any competitor, giving itsindustries unparalleled economies ofscale. Its scientists were the world'sbest, its workers the most skilled.America and Americans were prosperous beyondthe dreams of the Europeans andAsians whose economies the war had destroyed.

  It wasinevitable that this primacy should have narrowed as othercountries grewricher. Just as inevitably, the retreat from predominance provedpainful. By themid-1980s Americans had found themselves at a loss over theirfading industrialcompetitiveness. Some huge American industries, such asconsumer electronics,had shrunk or vanished in the face of foreigncompetition. By 1987 there wasonly one American television maker left, Zenith.(Now there is none: Zenith wasbought by South Korea's LG Electronics in July)Foreign-madecars and textiles were sweeping into the domestic market America'smachine-toolindustry was on the ropes. For a while it looked as though themaking ofsemiconductors, which America had which sat at the heart of the newcomputerage, was going to be the next casualty

  All of thiscaused a crisis of confidence. Americans stopped takingprosperity for granted.They began to believe that their way of doing businesswas failing, and thattheir incomes would therefore shortly begin to fall aswell. The mid-1980sbrought one inquiry after another into the causes ofAmerica's industrialdecline. Their sometimes sensational findings were filledwith warnings aboutthe growing competition from overseas

  How thingshave changed! In 1995 the United States can look back onfive years of solidgrowth while Japan has been struggling. Few Americansattribute this solely tosuch obvious causes as a devalued dollar or theturning of the business cycle.Self-doubt has yielded to blind pride. “ Americanindustry has changed itsstructure, has gone on a diet, has learnt to be morequick-witted,” according toRichard Cavanagh, executive dean of Harvard's KennedySchool of Government,“Itmakes me proud to be an American just to see how our businessesare improvingtheir productivity,” says Stephen Moore of the Cato Institute, a think-tankinWashington, DC. And William Sahlman of the Harvard Business Schoolbelievesthat people will look back on this period as “a golden age ofbusinessmanagement in the United States

解析

  11. The U.S.achieved its predominance after World War Ⅱbecause_____

  美国在二战后取得优势地位是因为_____

  [A] it hadmade painstaking efforts towards this goal

  它为该目标付出了艰巨的努力。

  [B] itsdomestic market was eight times larger than before

  它的国内市场比以前大八倍。

  [C] the warhad destroyed the economies of most potentialcompetitors

  战争摧毁了大多数潜在竞争对手的经济。

  [D] theunparalleled size of its workforce had given an impetus toits economy

  它无与伦比的劳动力规模给了经济推动力。

  【答案】 C

  【考点】 事实细节题。

  【分析】 第一段指出,二战后,美国就进入了这样的一个辉煌的历史时期。它拥有比任何竞争者大八倍的市场,这使其工业经济规模前所未有。它的科学家是世上最优秀的,它的工人是技术最好的。美国及其民众的富庶是那些经济遭到战争破坏的欧洲人和亚洲人连做梦也不敢想的。因此利用排除法,确定答案是[A]

  12. The lossof U.S. predominance in the world economy in the 1980sis manifested in the factthat the American_____

  上个世纪80年代美国优势地位的丧失可以从美国_______事实中看出来。

  [A] TVindustry had withdrawn to its domestic market

  电视工业已经退到国内市场

  [B]semiconductor industry had been taken over by foreignenterprises

  半导体产业已经被外国公司接管

  [C]machine-tool industry had collapsed after suicidal actions

  机床业已经自取灭亡

  [D] autoindustry had lost part of its domestic market

  汽车工业已经丧失了部分国内市场

  【答案】 D

  【考点】 事实细节题。

  【分析】 [A]选项错误,因为第二段中说1987年,美国只剩下Zenith这一家电视生产商。(现在这一家也没有了:Zenith7月被韩国LG电器公司收购。)”说明它连国内市场也保不住了。[B]选项错误,文中第二段最后一句提到,在一段时间内,半导体制造业似乎要成为下一个受害者,可是事实上没有。[C]选项中谈到的机床业已经自取灭亡的说法错误,因为文中提到机床制造业岌岌可危”(on the ropes),但是还没有灭亡呢。[D]是合适的,因为第二段第六句提到,进口车和纺织品横扫国内市场

  13. What canbe inferred from the passage?

  从本文中可以推断出哪个选项?

  [A] It ishuman nature to shift between self-doubt and blind pride

  在自我怀疑和盲目骄傲之间摇摆是人的本性。

  [B] Intensecompetition may contribute to economic progress

  激烈的竞争会导致经济的发展。

  [C] Therevival of the economy depends on international cooperation

  经济的复苏依靠国际的合作。

  [D] A longhistory of success may pave the way for furtherdevelopment

  一个长期成功的经历会为进一步的发展铺平道路。

  【答案】 B

  【考点】 推断题。

  【分析】 第三段提到,所有这一切导致了信心危机。美国人不再视繁荣为理所当然之事。他们开始怀疑自己的商业经营方式出了问题,也怀疑不久他们的收入就会下降。20世纪80年代中期对美国工业衰退的原因作了一次又一次的调查。那些有时耸人听闻的结果中充满着对来自国外的加剧的经济竞争的警告。第四段提到了“90年代的经济复苏。其中的含义是:在竞争的压力下,美国人在80年代产业结构调整,美国的工业已经改变了结构,消除了滞胀,学会了急智,因此带来了90年代的经济复苏。因此可以得出激烈的竞争会导致经济的发展。另外三个选项都不合适。

  14. Theauthor seems to believe the revival of the U.S. economy inthe 1990s can beattributed to the____

  作者似乎相信美国经济在上个世纪90年代的复苏可以归结于____

  [A]turning ofthe business cycle 经济周期的转折

  [B]restructuringof industry 行业重组

  [C]improvedbusiness management 改善了的工商管理

  [D]success ineducation 教育的成功

  【答案】 A

  【考点】 作者观点题。

  【分析】 在第四段,作者指出,“1995年,美国可以对过去5年的稳步发展作一回顾,而日本还在奋力挣扎。很少有美国人将这一巨变单纯归因于美元贬值或商业周期循环这些显而易见的原因。如今,对自身的怀疑已被盲目乐观所取代。这里作者实际上对当前美国人的盲目乐观情绪进行了批评,认为90年代的增长是由美元贬值或经济周期的转机等因素造成的。[B]“Richard Cavan, , augh”的看法。[C]“Stephen Moore”的看法。[D]选项文中没有提及。
