  [阅读理解]“Longer life would give us a chance to recover from our mistakes and promote long term thinking,” says Dr Gregory Stock of the University Of California School Of Public Health. “It would also raise productivity by adding to the year we can work.”

  Longer lives don‘t just affect the people who live them. They also affect society as a whole. “We have war, poverty, all sorts of issues around, and I don’t think any of them would be at all helped by having people live longer,” says US bioethicist Daniel Callahan. “The question is ‘What will we get as a society’s suspect it won‘t be a better society.”

  Which of the following is NOT mentioned as one of the things that living longer might enable an individual to do

  A、Spending more time with his family.

  B、Having more education.

  C、Realizing more dreams.

  D、Working longer.

  正确答案:B

  答案解析:答案选B。长寿使个人能做的事主要在以上两段里讲到,作者没有提到长寿可以让人更多地接受教育。

  [阅读理解]I was searching for just the right word to describe this book; a word that describes something that is perhaps somewhat sad, but in a good way. I couldn‘t find quite the right word, but I do know the feeling.

  This book does make me feel a bit sad. Sad for the way that childhood passes so quickly, sad for days that go by, faster than we‘d like them to. But it also makes me feel the sweetness of these things and helps me remember that childhood imagination, freedom and joy are things that we can carry with us still, long after our days as children have passed.

  Which of the following is true about the author‘s feeling of the book?

  A、It makes him feel sad for his childhood is sad.

  B、It makes him feel sad because he didn‘t remember his happy childhood.

  C、He couldn‘t describe the book, for he doesn’t know the feeling.

  D、He realizes that childhood imagination, freedom and joy are things that he can carry even when he is an adult.

  正确答案:D

  答案解析:答案选D。细节理解题。 通过本段第二句I couldn’t find quite the right word, but I do know the feeling...可排除C。通过第四句Sad for the way that childhood passes so quickly可以知道他感觉悲伤是因为童年时光匆匆而过,而不是因为他的童年是悲伤的,文中并未提及。所以A不对。同理文中也并未提及他感到悲伤是以为他没有了童年的回忆,故B也不对。而可以通过最后一句话得出D是对的。
