南宁市 2014 高考英语完形填空、阅读理解训练题（10）及答案
A study involving 8,500 teenagers from all social backgrounds found that most of them are ignorant when it comes to money. The findings,
the first in a series of reports from NatWest that has started a five-year research project into teenagers and money, are particularly worrying as this generation of young people is likely to be burdened with greater debts than any before. University tuition fees are currently capped at ? 3,000 annually, but this will be reviewed next year and the Government is under enormous pressure to raise the ceiling. In the research, the teenagers were presented with the terms of four different loans but 76 per cent failed to identify the cheapest. The young people also predicted that they would be earning on average ? 31.000 by the age of 25, although the av erage salary for those aged 22 to 29 is just ? 17,815. The teenagers expected to be in debt when they finished university or training, although half said that they assumed the debts would be less than ? 10.000. Average debts for graduates are ? 12,363. Stephen Moir, head of community investment at the Royal Bank of Scotland Group which owns NatWest, said. "The more exposed young people are to financial issues, and the younger they become aware of them, the more likely they are to become responsible, forward-planning adults who manage their finances confidently and effectively." Ministers are deeply concerned about the financial pressures on teenagers and young people because of student loans and rising housing costs. They have just introduced new lessons in how to manage debts. Nikki Fairweather, aged 15, from St Helens, said that she had benefited from lessons on personal finance, but admitted that she still had a lot to learn about money. 57. Which of the following can be found from the five-year research project? A. Students understand personal finances d ifferently. B. University tuition fees in England have been rising. C. Teenagers tend to overestimate their future earnings. D. The students' payback ability has become a major issue. 58. The phrase "to raise the ceiling" in paragraph 2 probably means "______".
A. to raise the student loans C. to increase the upper limit of the tuition 59. According to Stephen Moir, students _______.
B. to improve the school facilities D. to lift the school building roofs
A. are too young to be exposed to financial issues B. should learn to manage their finances well
C. should maintain a positive attitude when facing loans D. benefit a lot from lessons on personal finance 60. What can we learn from the passage? A. Many British teenagers do not know money matters well B. Teenagers in Britain are heavily burdened with debts. C. Financial planning is a required course at college. D. Young people should become responsible adults.

解析：从语境和动词选项看，这里用动词 filled 表示“使某物充满(另一物)；装满”：大厅里坐满了前来观看 表演的家人，也充满了兴奋的气氛。答案：A
解析：从语境的“大厅里充满兴奋的气氛，坐满了家人”可知他们是来看我表演。因此语境表示 7 岁的我成 为大家关注的中心， the center of attention 表示“大家关注的中心”。 用 pressure 压力； impression 印象； debate 争论，三项均不符合语境。 答案：D 38．A.take over B．show off C．look after D．give up
解析：最终，在几周的准备之后，我将通过舞蹈表演来展示我辛勤劳动的成果。show off 显示，炫耀；take over 接管；look after 照看；give up放弃，从语境的连贯性判断选 B 表示“展示”。 答案：B 39．A.reasonable B．suitable C．obvious D．perfect
