试题模式为：给出一篇缺少 5 个句子的文章，对应有七个选项，要求同学们 根据文章结构、内容，选出正确的句子，填入相应的空白处。 《考试说明》对该题 型命题目的的表述为“主要考查考生对文章的整体内容和结构以及上下文逻辑意义 的理解和掌握。” 新题型七选五其实跟传统题型完形填空有相似之处，完形填空空出的是词， 而七选五空出的是句子，
但是他们的考察方式都是一样的， 只要考生选择的答案能 够使行文连贯，符合英文的语法以及习惯表达就行，因此，这两类题型在做题方法 上有共通之处。 另外，从该题型给出的选项中我们可以发现一些特点：该题型选项大致可分 为主旨概括句（文章整体内容） 、过渡性句子（文章结构）和注释性句子（上下文 逻辑意义）三类。另外两个多余的干扰项也可以通过这三个特点来排除，例如主旨 概括句要么过于宽泛要么以偏概全或偏离主题， 过渡性句子不能反映文章的行文结 构，注释性句子与上文脱节等
例如：[2014· 新课标全国卷Ⅱ] 根据短文内容，从短文后的选项中选出能填入空白处的最佳选项。 选项中有两项为多余选项。 Tips for cooking on a tight schedule From my experience, there are three main reasons why people don't cook more often: ability, money, and time. __36__ Money is a topic I'll save for another day. So today I want to give you some wisdom about how to make the most of the time you spend in the kitchen. Here are three tips for great cooking on a tight schedule： 1. Think ahead. The moments when I think cooking is a pain are when I'm already hungry and there's nothing ready to eat. So think ahead of the coming week. When will you have time to cook? Do you have the right materials already? __37__ 2. Make your time worth it. When you do find time to cook a meal, make the most of it and save yourself time later on. Are you making one loaf of bread? __38__ It takes around the same amount of time to make more of something. So save yourself the effort for a future meal. 3. __39__ This may surprise you, but one of the best tools for making cooking worth your time is experimentation. It gives you the chance to hit upon new ideas and recipes that can work well with your appetite and schedule. The more you learn and the more you try, the more ability you have to take control of your food and your schedule.
Hopefully that gives you a good start. __40__ And don't let a busy schedule discourage you from making some great changes in the way you eat and live! A. Try new things. B. Ability is easily improved. C. Make three or four instead. D. Understand your food better. E. Cooking is a burden for many people. F. Let cooking and living simply be a joy rather than a burden. G. A little time planning ahead can save a lot of work later on.
1、先看选项。 跟完形填空不一样，七选五的答案选项较少，并且给出的都是句子，因此， 我们可以通过句子的完整性或者句子后面的标点符号来判断该句在文章中的位置。 另外，通过阅读选项，有可能找出跟其他选项表达完全不同意思的句子，这样的话 我们就可以直接将该选项排除。 2、再看空前空后。 由于七选五空出的是整个句子，而这些句子与句子之间，必然有一种联系， 因此我们可以通过选项中某个名词或动词跟空前或空后的一致性或者相关性来确 定这两个句子之间有一种关联性，从而选择正确的答案。 3、注意代词或定冠词。 在做这类题目的时候，一定要注意句子中出现的人称代词或者指示代词，因 为我们知道， 代词是指代一个名词或者一个句子的， 然后通过代词在句子中所做的 成分我们可以推断出它指代的句子的类型， 我们要做的就是从选项中找这类句型就 可以了。 4、注意一些特殊疑问词。 如果选项中或空前出现特殊疑问词，一定要把这句话仔细读几遍，因为对于 不同特殊疑问词的回答方式是不一样的，比如对 why 的回答，后面要有 because 等表原因的词，对 when 的回答，后面要有表时间的状语，对 where 的回答，后面 要有表地点的名词，对 how 的回答，后面要有方式状语等。 5、注意一些连词。 如一些表示转折的连词，but，However，yet，though，nevertheless 等，另外 还有一些表示并列关系的连词如 and，also，as well as，neither…nor，either…or， not only...but also，on one hand....on the other hand 等。因为这些连词可以表现句子 与句子之间的关系，通过不同的连词我们可以推知句子与句子之间不同的关系。 解题步聚：1. 通读全文，了解文章大意。 2. 通读答案，找出和文章相对应的关键词。
3. 根据文章整体结构、具体内容，并结合关键词，将选项填入文中。 4.将所选答案代入文中，再次通读全文，重点考查逻辑关系和关联结构。 5. 研究多余选项，确定排除理由，最终确定答案。
