There will be many people in the world and most of them will live longer than people live now. Computers will be much smaller and more useful, and there will be at least one in every room. And computer studies will be one of the important subjects in schools then. People will work fewer hours than they do now and they will have more free time for sports, watching TV and travel. Traveling will be much cheaper and easier. And many more people will go to other countries for holidays.

?【精彩美文】 ? Good morning,everyone, ? I am Li Hua from Xingguang Middle School. The topic of my speech is “Let's Ride Bicycles”. ? As is known to all,with the improvement of people's living standards,cars have become a popular means of transport, bringing great convenience to our life. However,they have also caused some problems such as air pollution and traffic jams.

How can we solve the problems then?As far as I'm concerned, iding bicycles is a good solution. For one thing,bicycles don't eed any petrol and they are energysaving. For another,bicycles re environmentally friendly because they won't give off waste gas. What's more,riding bicycles is a good way for us to exercise and it s beneficial to our health. Therefore,let's take the responsibility to build up a owcarbon city by riding bicycles. Come on and join us! Thank you!

?【易错警示】 ?run out是不及物动词短语,其主语通常是时间、金钱、食物 等无生命的名词。run out of则是及物动词短语,主语是人,后 接宾语。use up是及物动词短语,相当于run out of;而give out 是不及物动词短语,表示“(某物)用完了,没有了”,无被动 语态。

? 2.单项填空
? ? It is predicated that existing reserves of fossil fuel ________ by 2045. A. have been run out B. are going to be run out


C. will have run out 【解析】 C

D. have run out


考查动词的时态和语态。run out是不及物 动词短语,无被动语态,通常以物作主语。再结合后面的 时间状语by 2045可知应该用将来完成时,由此可以判断答 案为C。

I’m too busy enjoying my life now to worry about the future! 享受生活,没时间为未来担忧! 【句式点拨】 too…to…太……以至于不能…… 【温馨提示】 too…to在下列情况下表示肯定含义:


(1) 当too后是glad,pleased,happy,delighted,satisfied, ready, willing,eager,anxious等形容词时。如: They are too anxious to leave.他们急于离开。


He is always too ready to help others. 他总是乐于助人。 与这些词连用时,too前还常加上only,all,but,just,simply等副 词,意思不变,因为这些词加 上too后与very同义。如: I’m only too glad to see you.见到你非常高兴。 They are but too pleased to hear the news. 他们听到这则消息,非常高兴。 (2) 与cannot连用时。 You cannot be too careful(=You can never be careful enough) to do your homework. 你做作业越仔细越好(=无论怎样仔细也不过分)。

? 3.As there is less and less coal and oil, scientists are
? ? ? exploring new ways of making use of energy, such as sunlight, wind and water for power and fuel. A.primary B.alternative C.instant D.Unique 【解析】 B 本题考查形容词辨析。既然石油和煤都越 来越少,人们只好使用一些其他可替代这些燃料的东西。 alternative 有“可选择的,可替代的”之意,符合句意。 primary首要的,初期的;instant立即的,迅速的;unique 独特的。

? 9.—Can I help you?
? —I'd like a room with a bath. How much do you________? ? A.pay B.offer C.charge D.Afford ? 【解析】 C 本题考查动词辨析。charge在此 处是指“要价”。pay意为“付款给(某人),支付 (价款)”;offer意为“主动提供”;afford意为 “付得起”,皆不符合题意。本题的关键是空格 处动作的发出者是you,而不是I。

? 6.When we will hold the flower show in the park mainly ________ the weather recently. ? A.lies on B.puts on ? C.relies on


on ? 【解析】 D 本题考查动词短语辨析。 depend on表示 “依靠,依赖,信任”时和 rely on意义相同。但是depend on还可以表 示“取决于,由……决定”。

? 10. —When can I see you, Mr Black? Three o'clock this afternoon? ? —Oh, no. I ________ a meeting then. ? A.will have B.will be having

C.am having


【解析】 B 本题考查动词的时态。此处用将来进行 时强调在将来某个时间正在进行的动作。故选B。
