1. A 这个句子的意思是说,最初的人类文明出现于水在周围的环境中起着重要作用的地方。所以要用where引导一个表示地点的状语丛集。又如:The young people should go where the country needs them the most.
2.  C 在英语中,表示“对……的挑战”的意思要用 a challenge to … 。
3.  D 这个句子的主语是 the Babylonians,谓语是后面的invented laws … 。可见,都好后面的成分要做补充说明用。根据已有的信息,我们可以推出这里who是正确的,它同后面的部分组成一个非限制性的定语从句,修饰主语。注意,that虽然也可以引导定语从句,但它不能引导非限制性定语从句。
4. D 这里只能填regulating,该词同后面的短语构成现在分词短语,修饰上文的laws。整个名词短语的意识是“管理用水的法律”。
5. B 当一个名词修饰另一个名词时,该名词往往用其单数形式(当然并非总是如此,下面这样的句子也是有人说的:We had a two weeks holiday.)。根据这一原则,1000-后接mile,像上文的 the 365-day就是遵循了这一原则。又如: a four-hour ride,a twenty-mile trip ,a five-room house, a six-storey building。
6. A remain in use 表示仍然在使用。 in use 是“在使用”的意思。又如:The textbook is no longer in use. If this is not in use, I’d like to borrow it.
7.  B ancient 既是形容词也是名词,the ancients 尤指古代文明的人。
8.  A 前文有so,这里应该填入that,that引导的小句表示一种结果。又如:The weather was so bad that the children stayed indoors the whole day.
9. B death 是可数名词,也是不可数名词。作可数名词时,是指某种类型的死(如:He died a natural death.)也可指死了多少人。 damage 是不可数名词,它的复数形式 damages 主要用在法律领域,指损害赔偿。如:The court ordered him to pay $1,000 damages to the person he had hurt. ruin 是不可数名词。可数形式ruins 常指“遗迹”、“废墟”等,如: The majestic ruins of Rome impressed her immensely.可以看出,在这三个选项中,只有deaths 是合适的。 cause 是使役动词,可以说“… it caused a million people to die.”但不可以说*“… it caused a million people.”所以填入people是错误的。
10. D 正确的答案是 civilization,意思是“印度河谷的人类文明”。
11. C 量词 many, a lot of, lots of 和much是一个连续统一体。具体地说,many只修饰可数名词,much是、只修饰不可数名词,而a lot of 和lots of 处于两者之间,既可限定可数名词,也可限定不可数名词。lots of 比 a lot of 在口气上更随便些。下面是一些具体的用 a lot of 和lots of 的例子:I remember a lot of things. / A lot of our land is used to grow crops for export. / There are lots of things I could do. / I want lots of food. 英语中没有lot of 和 a lots of 这样的两次, land在此处是不可数名词,因此,唯一合适的选择是much。
12. B 正确的答案是填入as ,此处的as 引导的是表示方式的状语从句,整个句子的意思是说“今天,水就像它一直控制人类一样仍然在控制着人类”。由于原文前后两个句子之间没有一种因果关系,所以填入for 或because 都是不对的。而whereas 一词通常表示对比关系,如:The boys are singing whereas the girls are dancing.所以填入这个词在语义上是不合适的。
13. A 这个句子的意思是说,水的存在决定着人们选择安家建城的位置。Govern 和control都有“控制”和“支配”的意思。Govern可以是人的支配,也可以使自然法则或自然力量的控制或支配。所以,govern是一个合适的词。lead的意思是“引导;领导”。Influence的意思是“影响”。
14.  C 如(9)中所说,cause是使役动词,只说“… can cause man or his herbs or his crops ”句子不完整。Violate一词的后面可以跟 a rule, a law,但不能说是man。Damage一词的后面常跟物质的东西,如a house, a village, crops等,也不能接man 。所以只有kill一词是正确的选择。注意 kill可以跟“活着的东西”,所以kill his crops 在语义上完全成立。又如:The cold weather has killed the flowers.
15. D link 一词可跟to 搭配,又如:The bridge links this city to that village.
