2017年职称英语试题综合B阅读理解专项练习(7)

  Upon reaching downtown El Paso,I met an old man,a bum,on the street corner.He stopped me and questioned me as I passed by.He asked me if I was running away from home,I suppose because I looked so young.I told him,“Not exactly,sir,”since my father had given me a ride to the freeway in Houston and given me his blessings while saying, “It is important to follow your dream and what is in your heart.Son.”

  After conversing for a few minutes,the friendly bum told me to follow him.He told me that he had something grand to show me and share with me.We walked a couple of blocks until we came upon the downtown Public Library.

  The bum first led me to a table and asked me to sit down and wait for a moment while he looked for something special amongst the shelves. A few moments later,he returned with a couple of old books under his arms and set them on the table.He then sat down beside me and spoke.He started with a few statements that were very special and that changed my life.He said,“There are two things that l want to teach you,and they are these:Number one is to never judge a book by its cover, for a cover can fool you.”He followed with.“I’ll bet you think I’m a bum,don’t you,young man?”

  I said,“Well,uh,yes,l guess so,sir.”

  “Well,I’ve got a little surprise for you.I am one of the wealthiest men in the world. I have probably everything any man could ever want.But a year ago,my wife passed away, and since then I have been deeply reflecting upon life.I realized there were certain things I had not yet experienced in life.one of which was what it would be like to live like a bum on the streets.So,you see,don’t ever judge a book by its cover,for a cover can fool you.”

  “Number two is to learn how to read,my boy.For there is only one thing that people can't take away from you,and that is your wisdom.”At that moment,he reached forward,grabbed my right hand in his and put them upon the books he’d pulled from the shelves.They were the writings of Plato and Aristotle immortal classics from ancient times.

  His parting request was for me to never forget what he taught me.

  I haven’t.

  答案

  1.正确答案:B

  解析:B 该题说的是:作者看到老人的时候正好与父亲在一起开车。第一段提到了作者的父亲将他送到了休斯顿的高速公路上并为儿子祝福,很显然作者与老人遭遇的时候已经与父亲分别了,所以题干的说法是错误的。

  2.正确答案:C

  解析:C 该题说的是:事实上,老人是他们所去的市区公立图书馆的馆长。文章只是提到了两人去了图书馆,并在文章的后半部分说明了老人富豪的身份,但是图书馆的经理是谁,文章没有具体说明。

  3.正确答案:A

  解析:A 该题说的是:老人在图书馆里给了作者两条忠告。第三段的There are two things that l want to teach you,and they are these具体提到了老人要交给作者两件事。

  4.正确答案:A

  解析:A 该题说的是:老人确信作者将他看成了乞丐。第三段的I’ll bet you think I’m a bum,don’t you,young man?提到了老人确信作者将他看成了乞丐,注意I bet和be sure of的同义转换

  5.正确答案:C

  解析:C 该题说的是:老人的妻子一年前患癌症去世。文章中只提到了老人的妻子于一年前去世,但没有提及去世的原因。

  6.正确答案:B

  解析:B 该题说的是:由于老人为失去妻子感到过度伤痛,因此他放弃一切财富成了一个乞丐。倒数第三段中,老人说I am one of the wealthiest men in the world.这足以证明老人是一个富翁,他在街上流浪只不过是一种生活的体验而已。

  7.正确答案:C

  解析:C 该题说的是:老人让作者多读亚里士多德的书籍,因为老人认为他是世界上最伟大的哲学家。文章最后老人拿出两本书,但是文章只是通过这两本书说明读书的重要性,至于老人对于亚里士多德的具体评价,文章并没有涉及。
