完形填空---说明文型完形填空 专题导读 说明文往往围绕一个问题从不同的侧面来加以说明,通常结构严谨、句子结构复 杂,因此也是高考完形填空中较难理解的一种文体。 说明文一般有三类: 一是实体事例说明文(实体事物是指国家、 城市、 人物、 山水、树木、花草、虫鱼、鸟兽、建筑、文化古迹、科技成果及各种工农业产品)。 包括说明书、广告、解说词、人物介绍、知识小品、知识注解等。二是事理(事理 是指观点、立场、名词概念、学术流派等)说明文。包括理论性解释、文书简介、 教材等。三是文艺性说明文。即把说明对象拟人化,进而编成故事,对其进行介 绍。 说明文完形填空的具体特点:(1)开头点题。做说明文型完形填空时,要明确说明 的对象是什么,是具体实物还是理论性概念。因此,明确说明的对象是掌握说明 细节的前提。在近年的说明文型完形填空中,作者一般在文章的首句直接提出说 明的对象。(2)结构清晰。把握语篇特征对理解文意与答题极为有利。说明文的写 作一般按时间顺序(指先后顺序),空间顺序(从局部到整体,从上到下,从内到外), 逻辑顺序(前因后果,先果后因,先主后次);认识顺序(由此及彼,由浅入深,由具 体到抽象,由现象到本质)。说明文型完形填空短文层次清晰,整体性强,所以, 递进性词汇和名词的设题往往出现得较多。说明文往往较直白,写作脉络清晰, 又没有很多感情因素的掺入,所以就不会有过多的情感词汇,自然不会有钻不出 的“迷宫” 。据此特点,我们便可以跟着“作者”走,理清整篇文章的思路,从而 顺利答题。


真题典例 [2010〃上海卷] The first attempt of even the most talented artists, musicians, and writers is seldom a masterpiece. If you consider your drafts as dress rehearsals (彩排), or tryouts, revising will seem a natural part of the writing __1__. What is the purpose of the dress rehearsals and the out-of-town previews that many Broadway shows go through? The answer is adding, deleting, replacing, reordering ,— __2__ revising.Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musical Phantom of the Opera underwent such a process. When Lloyd Webber began writing in 1984, he had in mind a funny, exciting production. However, when Phantom opened in London in 1986, the audience saw a moving psychological love story set to music. The musical had __3__several revisions due, in part, to problems with costuming and makeup (戏服和化妆). For instance, Lloyd Webber __4__ some of the music because the Phantom’s makeup prevented the actor from singing certain sounds. When you revise, you change aspects of your work in __5__ to your evolving purpose, or to include __6__ ideas or newly discovered information. Revision is not just an afterthought that gets only as much time as you have at the end of an assignment.__7__, it is a major stage of the writing process, and writers revise every step of the way.Even your decision to __8__ topics while prewriting is a type of revising.However, don’ t make the mistake of skipping the revision stage that follows __9__.Always make time to become your own __10__and view your dress rehearsal, so to speak.Reviewing your work in this way can give you __11__ new ideas. Revising involves __12__ the effectiveness and appropriateness of all aspects of your writing, making your purpose more clearly, and refocusing or developing the facts and ideas you present.When you revise, ask yourself the following questions, keeping in mind the audience for whom you are writing: Is my main idea or purpose __13__ throughout my draft? Do I ever lose sight of my purpose? Have I given my readers all of the __14__ —that is, facts, opinions, inferences—that they need in order to understand my main idea? Finally, have I included too many __15__ details that may confuse readers?

7.C 副词 moreover(而且)类似于 but also,表递进含义;副词 however 然而,表 转折关系;instead 作为“替代,反而” ,表相反含义;therefore 因此,表原因。由 语境可知选 C。 8.B switch topics(变换标题)属于修改作品的一部分。动词 discuss(讨论)、 exhaust(使筋疲力尽)、cover(覆盖,包含)都不符题意。 9.A rearranging(重新安排)、performing(表演)、training(培训)都与题意不符。由

confuse readers 对应。形容词 amazing(令人惊讶的)、bright(明亮的,聪明的)、 unique(独特的)都与题意不符。 14.C facts,opinions,inferences 都属于 information,故选 C。 15.A unnecessary details 表示“不必要的信息” ,句意表示不必要的信息反而使

读者困惑、误导读者。形容词 uninteresting(单调的,乏味的)、concrete(具体的)、 final(最终的,决定性的)都与题意不符。

Jack Andraka from Maryland won the grand prize at the 2013 Intel International Science and Engineering Fair. It is the largest high school science competition in the world. The Maryland teenager is the youngest winner of the $75,000 award,who was chosen from among 1,500 students in 70 countries. Jack Andraka invented a test for pancreatic cancer, one of the deadliest forms of cancer. He started to learn it after losing a close family friend to the disease. “I went on the Internet and I found that 85 percent of all pancreatic cancers are diagnosed late, when someone has less than a 2% chance of survival,” he says, “ and I was thinking, ‘That’s not right. We should be able to do something.’ ” He found that early discovery is important to increasing the chances of surviving the disease. The Maryland teenager requested and received permission to work in a laboratory at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore. There he developed a simple paper test, which can identify the disease in a single drop of blood. His test has proven correct 90% of the time. It also is 100 times more sensitive than other tests. “It costs three cents per test, and then also it takes only five minutes to run.” he said. Jack’s success wouldn’t have been possible without Anirban Maitra, a professor at Johns Hopkins. He was the only person among the 200 researchers Jack contacted who showed interest in his project. “I was very surprised that this was a 15-year old boy who was writing this. I wanted to meet this clever young man and see what he wanted to talk about and so I called him over for an interview.” Jack worked in Professor Maitra’s laboratory, completing his project in seven months. The government has given the Maryland teenager patent rights to the pancreatic cancer test. He is now talking with companies about developing the test into a simple product. Whatever happens, the professor believes Jack Andraka’s name is one we will be hearing again over the next 10 to 20 years. 48. What made Jack Andraka research pancreatic cancer? _____ A.

阅读下列短文,从每题所给的四个选项(A、B、C 和 D)中,选出最佳选项,并在答题卡上将 该选项标号涂黑。 Change is everything in the case of mobile phones. Recent research indicates that the mobile phone is changing not only our culture, but our very bodies as well. First, let’s talk about culture. The difference between the mobile phone and its parent, the fixed-line phone, is that a mobile number corresponds to a person, while a landline goes to a place. If you call my mobile, you get me. If you call my fixed-line phone, you get whoever answers it. This has several implications(含义). The most common one, however, and perhaps the thing that has changed our culture forever, is the “meeting” influence. People no longer need to make firm plans about when and where to meet. Twenty years ago, a Friday night would need to be arranged in advance. You needed enough time to allow everyone to get from their place of work to the first meeting place. Now, however, a night out can be arranged on the run. It is no longer “see you there at 8”,but “text me around 8 and we’ll see where we all are.” Texting changes people as well. In their paper, “Insights into the Social and Psychological Effects of SMS (Short Message Service) Text Messaging", two British researchers distinguished between two types of mobile phone users: the “talkers” and the “texters”-those who prefer voice to text messages and those who prefer text to voice.

- 11 -

They found that the mobile phone’s individuality and privacy gave texters the ability to express a whole new outer personality. Texters were likely to report that their family would be surprised if they were to read their texts. This suggests that texting allowed texters to present a self-image that differed from the one familiar to those who knew them well. Another scientist wrote of the changes that mobiles have brought to body language. There are two kinds that people use while speaking on the phone. There is the “speakeasy”: the head is held high, in a self-confident way, chatting away. And there is the “spacemaker”: these people focus on themselves and keep out other people. Who can blame them? Phone meetings get cancelled or reformed and camera- phones intrude (侵入) on people’s privacy. So, it is understandable if your mobile makes you nervous. But perhaps you needn’t worry so much. After all, it is good to talk. 41. The “meeting” influence of a mobile phone refers to the fact that ________. A. people can arrange their meeting place and time more flexibly B. people have to make a firm plan about when and where to meet C. people are able to meet someone at any place and any time D. people have to attend phone meetings than ever before 42. According to the two British researchers, the Social and Psychological Effects are most likely to be seen on ________. A. talkers D. texters 43. We can infer from the passage that the texts sent by texters are _________. A. showing or making known B. well written C. unacceptable by others D. shocking to others 44. According to the passage, who is afraid of being heard while talking on the mobile? A. talkers B. the “speakeasy” C. the “spacemaker” D. texters B. the “speakeasy” C. the “spacemaker”

45. Which of the following can be the best title of the passage? A. The Influence of Short Message Service C. Changes in the Use of the Mobile B. Changes Caused by Mobile Phone Use D. Body Language and the Mobile Phone

41. A 从第三段 People no longer need to make firm plans about when and where to meet.可知。 42. D 从第四五段可知 43. A 从第五段可知。 44. C 从第六段最后一句可知

45. B 从第一段可知。
