2020年全国英语等级考试二级(pets2)阅读理解练习题九

来源:中华考试网   2020-01-14【

  Yang Yongfang used to take the bus to work. But, these days, when she takes a look at the bus, all she sees is "a big box full of people,all breathing in there. It seems very unsafe."

  And that means SARS. So Yang got out her bicycle and dusted it off. Other Chinese who, until recently, appeared to be moving away from the old mode of transportation, seem to he back riding as well.

  Of course, there's no shortage of bikes. There were plenty long before SARS showed up. But in recent years, private care have been growing in large numbers, crowding bicycles off the streets in some of the biggest cities. Now SARS has brought the bicycle traffic back. Crowded trains and buses look less attractive(吸引人的).

  In Shanghai 120,000 more bicycles were registered (登记) in April, well above last year's monthly average of 50,000.

  People's Daily recently reported that "bicycle" had suddenly become the third most frequently searched term on the nation's largest Web search engine.

  However, if bike sales continue upward, it could become a nightmare (噩梦)for traffic planners, who had to contend with the often deadly clash between bikes and motorized vehicles. Shanghai officially sees nearly one traffic-related bicycle death a day, a figure that many people here say is probably an understatement (少报).

  A. is strongly against B. is for

  答案: D 指导:由“if bike sales continueupward,it could become a nightmare...可知。

  4. What is the best title for the passage?

  A. Bikes Sell Well in Shanghai.

  B. The New Fashion.

  C. Back to Nature.

  D. Shanghai Takes on a New Look.

  答案: A 指导:为了躲避SARS,人们又重新选择了自行车,从而导致了自行车的旺销。因此,将A作为标题,可以揭示出“triffic"与"SARS',之间在这一特定时期的关系。
