1. B. 逻辑主语the British recapture of the port (英国人再次占领港口) 与动词announce 之间应为被动关系, 故应使用过去分词,所以B应为正确答案. A为不定式, 不能构成独立结构,应排除. C为现在分词,只能表达主动关系,不符合句子要求.
2. D. 主要考查几个习语的用法区别. A “宁愿”,更喜欢”, 一般与than 搭配使用; would rather… than .., 由于题句中没有than ,故排除A. B “不得不”, C “不得不,只好”, 此两项均不符句意,均应排除. D “最好”,也可表示为 “had better” 表示强烈的取舍, 符合句意, 同时也正好与后面的 “instead of” (而不要)呼应,故为正确答案.
3. A. 考查时时态知识.主句部分 “She felt suitably humble” (她举止谦逊,得体) 使用了一般过去时,比较状语从句部分 “just as she --- when he …” (就像当初她所表现的那样) 则相应地使用过去完成时态才符合句意,可见,空格应填入had done.
4. B. 介词despite (尽管) 后应加动名词,从而排除D; 另由于动名词动作肯定发生在 “keep a firm control on …” 之前,所以必须使用动名词的完成时态,故B应为正确答案.
5. D. 他如此专心读书,他妻子一直不敢弄出声音.
