小编摘要:改错部分的测试目的是检查同学们在实际语境中灵活运用语言的能力,多多练习才能掌握规律,攻克这一难点嘿。

 Cities can be frightened places. The majority of__1__
the population live in noisy massive tower blocks. The
sense of belonging to a community tends to appear__2__
when you live thirty floors up in a skyscraper. Strange__3__
enough, whereas in the past the inhabitants of one
street all knew each other, nowadays people on the
same floor in tower blocks even say hello to each __4__
other.
Country life, on the other hand, differs from this
kind of isolated existence in that a sense of community
generally keep the inhabitants of a small village togeth- __5__
er. People have the advantage of knowing that there is
always someone to turn to when they need help. So __6__
country life has disadvantages too. For example,
shopping becomes a major problem and for anything
slightly out of the ordinary you have to go for an expe- __7__
dition to the nearest large town. The country has the
advantage of peaceful and quiet, but suffers from the __8__
disadvantages of being cut off. The city has noise and
population which do harm to human health. But one of
their main advantages is that you are at the centre of __9__
things and that life doesn’t come to an end even at ten
at night. Some people have found a compromise be-
tween the two: they expressed their preference for the
quiet life by leaving for the city and moving to the __10__
country within commuting distance of the large city.

参考答案及解析:
1.把frightened改为frightening
frightened是“受到惊吓的”,表明心理状态,而frightening表示“令人害怕的”,表示事物性质。

2.把appear改为disappear
“当你住在摩天大厦的三十层里”,可以推测这里要表达的是归属感的消失,而不是产生归属感。

3.把Strange改为Strangely
Strangely enough,是固定短语,经常用作插入语,意思是“说也奇怪,最奇怪的是”。

4.在say前面加上don’t
此处说的是,现在住在同一层楼的人甚至见面都不打招呼。

5.把keep改为keeps
in that 引导的句子主语应该是 a sense,故谓语应为单数。本句的意思是,农村生活与这种隔绝孤立的生活不同,因为一种归属感把小村里的居民联系在一起。

6.把so 改为but/yet
上文提到了乡村生活的好处,下文是转折,要用but或者yet。

7.把for改为on
“去远征”应该用go on a expedition,而go for 的意思是“去找,努力获取,拥护”。

8.把peaceful改为peace
of 后面不应该用形容词,所以应该改为peace。这里需要注意的是quiet既是名词又是形容词,不要被迷惑。

9.把their改为its
此处的代词应该指代上文的 the city。

10.删除leaving后面的for,或者把for改为from
leave表示“离开某地”,而leave for表示“离开某地去另外
