  1. A) 此空四个选项都是从属连词,但是它们的属性是不同的,例如:although是表示转折关系的;since,because,therefore是表示原因关系的。通过阅


  2. C) 根据词汇线索和词义搭配可知,stable,splendid和complicated一般不能用来修饰roads。

  3. B)根据语义线索可推断此空正确答案为选项B few。

  4. C) 根据上下文可推测出如果高速公路总是保持笔直,对于驾驶者来说是非常枯燥的,因此本空的正确答案为C enjoyable。

  5. D) 介词by能和动词pass搭配,意为“经过,掠过”。

  6. B) 本句中的联系副词Furthermore说明本句是对上一句的进一步补充和信息的增加,由此可推测本句句义为高速公路不仅经过风景区和乡村,通常还“将庞大的都市中心区连接起来”。故正确答案为B。

  7. D) “交通拥挤”用heavy 和traffic搭配。

  8. A)通过分析可知,这里使用的是一个非限定性定语从句,四个选项中只有A when 具备此语法功能。

  9. B)根据上下句关系可推断此句为条件句,故选项B为正确答案。

  10. A)根据主句中的“older ... roads”可推断此空需要填一个比较意义的副词,以构成对比关系,故选项A relatively“相应地,相对地”为正确答案。其他三词词义分别为:regularly“有规律地,定期地”;respectively“各自地”;reasonably“有理由地”。

  11. B)根据此空前后词及结构可断定此空应使用比较级,故可排除A和D。另外根据上下文可推测此空应为less,因为“more heavily traveled”意为“车辆拥挤的”公路,与常识不符。

  12. D)从下文的others可知此空正确答案为D some。

  13. B)根据上文的slopes和下文的hillsides就可以断定这里需要一个表示路况不好的词,选项A rocks意义不符,故只有B cliffs “悬崖” 为正确答案。

  14. A)根据题目和选项可断定此空应为towns的后置定语,由此可猜测句义为“位于深谷中的城镇”,“位于”lie是不及物动词,不能以过去分词的形式出现作名词的后置修饰语,故正确答案为lie的现在分词形式lying。

  15. D)定语从句修饰places用where来引导。
