[例1]Time is something from which we can’t escape. Even if we ignore it, it’s still going by, ticking away, second by second, minute by minute, hour by hour. So the main issue in using your time well is, “Who’s in charge?” We can allow time to slip by and let it be our enemy. Or we can take control of it and make it our ally.?
By taking control of how you spend your time, you’ll increase your chances of becoming a more successful student. Perhaps more importantly, the better you are at managing the time you devote to your studies, the more time you will have to spend on your outside interests.? The aim of time management is not to schedule every moment so we become slaves of a timetable that governs every waking moment of the day. Instead, the aim is to permit us to make informed choices as to how we use our time.
58. In the next part, the author would most D probably discuss with you____________. ? A. how to keep up with the times? B. how to make up for lost time? C. how to have a good time? D. how to make good use of time?
解析：D 第一段第3句(So…)提出观点或主题： 如何用好你的时间的关键是谁主宰谁，你可 以让时间溜走也可以掌控时间。第二段谈主 宰时间的好处；第三段谈主宰时间的目的； 由本文主题可知，接下来的第四段，作者应 是谈如何利用好时间了，故选D。选项A“如 何跟上时代”，选项B“如何补回丢失的时 间”，选项C“如何玩得开心”，均与主题无 关，应排除。
[例2]Sometimes, the simplest ideas are the best. For example, to absorb heat from the sun to heat water, you need large, flat, black surfaces. One way to do that is to build those surfaces specially, on the roofs of buildings. But why go to all that trouble when cities are full of black surfaces already, in the form of asphalt (柏油) roads? Ten years ago, this thought came into the mind of Arian de Bondt, a Dutch engineer. He finally persuaded his boss to follow it up. The result is that their building is now heated in winter and cooled in summer by a system that relies on the surface of the road outside.
The heat-collector is a system of connected water pipes. …
In winter, the working system is changed slightly. Water is pumped through the heat exchangers to pick up the heat stored during summer. This water goes into the building and is used to warm the place up. After performing that task, it is pumped under the asphalt and its remaining heat keeps the road free of snow and ice.
69. What is most likely to be discussed in the paragraph that follows?
A. What we shall do if the system goes wrong. B. What we shall do if there are no asphalt roads. C. How the system cools the building in summer. D. How the system collects heat in spring and autumn.
解析：C 第二段中有heated in winter and cooled in summer，而此处的最后一段介绍了 这种系统是如何让建筑物在冬天(In winter) 得到保暖的。由此可知，作者接着可会解释 这种系统是如何在夏天为建筑物降温的了， 故选C。
