Happiness means different things to different people. Forty percent of the students hold the opinion that people are happy when they enjoy their life by living in a spacious house in big cities. They hope to enjoy good health and feeling free themselves from stress and pressure. Living a comfortable life and free to do what they like is important to them. Besides, they don’t want to suffer a lot from working very hard. The rest of the students think happiness is hard work, through which people achieved great success. In their opinion, people should be confident, in good spirits and ready to meet all kinds of challenges. What’s more, people should love their family and friends and make contributions to society.
In my opinion, happiness depends on what we think about life. We should first work hard and be successful, and then we can consider living a comfortable life. Yours, Lihua 高二英语 40 分钟限时训练（2） 4
完形填空 41. 解析：选 C。情态动词辨析。句中的 usually 表示常态或习惯性动作，根据语境这里应该表示小女孩的 个人习惯，即通常她会在那个小花园里玩耍，would 意为“会，将会（表示按习惯可能会出现的情况）”， 故答案为 C。 42. 解析：选 B。主句意思是她向往住在那栋漂亮的房子里，从句意思是她爱她的父母和家，可见主从句 之间是让步关系，所以选 Although。 43. 解析：选 A。上句中的 desired“渴望”对本空具有提示作用，且下句提到整天 44. 解析：选 C。本句还原成正常语序应该是： 4 3 关于住在那儿是多么 的美妙和令人兴奋，所以选择 dreamed，dream about doing sth.意为“梦想做……”，故答案为 A。 must feel how wonderful and exciting to live there。可 知 must feel 缺少主语， 而分析句意可知， feel wonderful and exciting(exciting 只用来修饰事物)的应该是 to live there，可见此处真正的主语是 to live there，而空格处单词只是形式主语，能作形式主语的只有 it。 45. 解析：选 D。different 意为“不同的；各式各样的”；scientific 意为“科学的；有系统的”；musical 意为“音 乐的”；basic 意为“基本的”。下文小女孩的妈妈允许她在家附近骑自行车了，按常理推测，此处是说小女 孩到了已经具备一些基本的（basic）技能和识别力的年纪，故选择 D。 46. 解析：选 A。第 1 段提到小女孩渴望的心情，下句说她母亲最终同意（finally allowed）她可以去，可 见此处是说小女孩请求妈妈让她做某事，begged 意为“恳求”，符合文意，故答案为 A。 47. 解析：选 B。下句提到她妈妈让她在房子附近(keeping close to the house)，不要走太远，说明这里表达 的是去花园外面（outside）骑车，故答案为 B。 48. 解析： 选 A。 insist on 意为“坚持”； rely on 意为“依赖， 依靠”； argue about 意为“争论， 辩论”； wonder about“想 知道；对……感到奇怪”。上句提到妈妈答应了小女孩的要求，后面妈妈又补充说不要远离自家的房子，辨 析所给的选项 insisting on 符合语境，表达了母亲对小女孩的要求，故答案为 A。 49. 解析：选 C。上文的“a bike ride”，对本空有提示作用，以及本段末句提到她骑车（rode）去了金色房 子那里，句意为她妈妈要求她不要骑(riding)太远，故答案为 C。 50. 解析： 选 C。 madly 意为“发疯似地； 疯狂地”； rapidly 意为“很快地， 迅速地”； exactly“确切地”； possibly“可 能地”。上文提到小女孩一直很喜欢对面山上的那所房子，因此当得到妈妈同意后她确切地(exactly)知道自 己要去哪里，故答案为 C。 51. 解析：选 B。文章首段提到小女孩住在山上(on a hill)，所以这里是骑车下山(down the hill)，然后穿过 山谷，故答案为 B。 52. 解析：选 D。下段首句提到她下车，然后将自行车靠在门柱上(the gate post)，可以推知小姑娘是骑车到 金色房子的门口(gate)，故答案为 D。 53. 解析： 选 B。 until 意为“到……为止； 直到…才”； as“由于； 当……时候”； while 意为“在……期间； 与…… 同时”；because 意为“因为”。所填词表示主从句间的逻辑关系，而从句子意思上看，主从句间明显为时间 关系， 需要引导时间状语从句的词， while 引导时间状语从句时， 谓语动词应该是延续性的， 而 got off her bike 为瞬间动词，所以否定 C 选项，as 符合语法和语义要求，故为答案。 5
