through the 51 of the traffic I heard her 52 the immortal (不朽的)line, "... and I thi nk to myself, what a wonderful world!" I bought her last magazine for twice what I'd originally 53 . She thanked me, then she 54_ her belongings and went tapping off along the pavement – still singing!

路。in a hurry to do sth.“急于做某事”。 2．D 此题易误选 A 项，但从下文来看，此处并未选定走哪条路，只是建议而已。故选 D 项。 3．B 从司机所说的话来判断，他一定是“很生气”的。下文中的“annoyed”一词也是 暗示。 4．C 女商人试图向司机解释，她并不是想要惹司机生气的，因此答案为 C 项，mean to do sth.“打算做某事”。 5．D 结合上下文语境可知，司机不断大喊大叫。 6．A 她意识到他恼怒得已经不讲道理了，由此可知，reasonable“讲道理的，理性的” 符合语境。thoughtful“沉思的，思考的”；normal“正常的，平常的”；practical“实际 的，实践的，实用的”。 7．B change one's mind“改变主意或想法”。女商人见此情景，她改变了想法。 8．B 女商人对司机说自己似乎犯错误了，居然认为司机不是最熟悉城市道路的人。由
此可知答案为 B 项，而 stupid“愚蠢的”语气太重。 9．C through“从??的一端到另一端，穿过，贯穿”符合题意。 10．A 对女商人的突然转变，司机自然是感到“惊奇”的，他不再跟她争论，居然开车 送她了。 11．A 坐在出租车上的自然应是 rider“乘客”。 12 ． A 直到女商人下车付车费，司机一句话也没有再讲。本句考查了句型：
not...until...，“直到??才??”。 13．D be faced with“面临，面对”。句意：当你发现自己面对像这位出租车司机那
样的人时，你常常试图坚持己见，但是这样只能引起更多的争执??”。 14．C 根据上一题解析可知应该选择 C 项 stick to，意思是“遵守，坚持”。 15．B 此处指固执己见的后果之一是破坏婚姻。destroy“毁坏，毁灭，破坏”。 16．D 此题容易误选 C 项，但 but 强调的是后面的内容，而本句强调的是“one simple method”，所以排除。根据句意可知，作者发现一种简单的方法，虽然不是特别容易做到， 但能阻止危机的发生。由此可知 D 项正确。 17．B result in“引起，导致，以??为结局”，符合题意。 18．C 此处要表达“关键是要站在别人的立场上”之意，由此可知 C 项正确。key“关 键，要害”。 19．D truth“真理，正确的因素”。句意：关键是要换位思考，要认可对方话语中的
某些合理成分。 20．A 先设法认可或同意对方（的意见） ，你可能会得到意想不到的结果。

So, I count myself as one who has grown up too fast.

We are expected to work hard, get excellent 43 , be in a good relationship, and know what we want to do 44 . The list goes on and on. But the 45 is clear: We live in a society today that is 46 our childhood. We no longer have many years to be 47 the strict school rules and to
