Passage Two
Questions 26 to 30 are based on the following passage:

  Engineering students are supposed to be examples of practicality and rationality, but when it comes to my college education I am an idealist and a fool. In high school I wanted to be an electrical engineer and, of course, any sensible student with my aims would have chosen a college with a large engineering department, famous reputation and lots of good labs and research equipment. But that’s not what I did.
  I chose to study engineering at a small liberal-arts(文科)university that doesn’t even offer a major in electrical engineering. Obviously, this was not a practical choice; I came here for more noble reasons. I wanted a broad education that would provide me with flexibility and a value system to guide me in my career. I wanted to open my eyes and expand my vision by interacting with people who weren’t studying science or engineering. My parents, teachers and other adults praised me for such a sensible choice. They told me I was wise and mature beyond my 18 years, and I believed them.
  I headed off to college sure I was going to have an advantage over those students who went to big engineering “factories” where they didn’t care if you have values or were flexible. I was going to be a complete engineer: technical genius and sensitive humanist(人文学者)all in one.
  Now I’m not so sure. Somewhere along the way my noble ideals crashed into reality, as all noble ideals eventually do. After three years of struggling to balance math, physics and engineering courses with liberal-arts courses, I have learned there are reasons why few engineering students try to reconcile(协调)engineering with liberal-arts courses in college.
  The reality that has blocked my path to become the typical successful student is that engineering and the liberal arts simply don’t’ mix as easily as I assumed in high school. Individually they shape a person in very different ways; together they threaten to confuse. The struggle to reconcile the two fields of study is difficult.

26. The author chose to study engineering at a small liberal-arts university because he _______.
  A) wanted to be an example of practicality and rationality
  B) intended to be a combination of engineer and humanist
  C) wanted to coordinate engineering with liberal-arts courses in college
  D) intended to be a sensible student with noble ideals.
27. According to the author, by interacting with people who study liberal arts, engineering students can _______.
  A) balance engineering and the liberal arts
  B) receive guidance in their careers
  C) become noble idealists
  D) broaden their horizons
28. In the eyes of the author, a successful engineering student is expected _______
  A) to have an excellent academic record
  B) to be wise and mature
  C) to be imaginative with a value system to guide him
  D) to be a technical genius with a wide vision
29. The author’s experience shows that he was _______.
  A) creative
  B) ambitious
  C) unrealistic
  D) irrational
30. The word “they” in “…together they threaten to confuse.” (Line 3, Para.5) refers to _______
  A) engineering and the liberal arts.
  B) reality and noble ideals
  C) flexibility and a value system
  D) practicality and rationality




答案:
翻译:工程学生应该是实践性理性的模范,但谈到我的大学教育,我就是一个空想家和白痴。
26.问原因。根据liberal-arts定位在第二段的两个wanted 。答案是B:想成为一个工程学生和人文学者的结合体。而且第三段最后一句说的就是B的意思。
27.定位在第二段。目的是open my eyes and expand my vision 。所以答案是D:拓展视野。
28.定位在第三段。technical genius and sensitive humanist(人文学者)all in one. 和D是同一个意思,作者学文科就是为了with a wide vision有很广的知识面。所以答案是D。
29.第四段:my noble ideals crashed into reality 我的崇高理想和现实想碰撞。说明作者是不现实地。答案是C。D:不理智。作者做这样的选择也是经过考虑的,所以不能说他不理智。答案是C。
30. 超喜欢词义题,基本就是送分!they 是复数名词,往前面找复数名词有ways和they,这个they指的什么东西再往前找复数名词,只有engineering and the liberal arts两个一起就表示复数。所以they指的只有ways和engineering and the liberal arts。分析一下,答案就是A。
本文是记叙文。记叙文在四级中考的较少,因为这类文章不好出题,出的题目都阴不到人。而出题的“全真七子”本非良善之人,这么善意的题目他们是很不愿意出的。平时的阅读要注意这一点,多读一些社科类的文章。
