二、精典名题导解

选择填空

1. The  warmth of ______sweater will of course be determined by the sort of ____wool used. AThe ; the        Bthe ; /      C/; the       D/; /

解析:答案为B。第一空格为特指,交待the warmth的内容,第二空格为泛指,the sort of wool used所用羊毛的种类。此题有三点需注意:①正确理解sweater 这一句词在句中的类别。②掌握determine在句中作“决定”、“取决于”这个意思。③掌握定冠词表特指的基本用法。

2. Most animals have little connection with_________animals of___________different kind unless they kill them for food.

Athe … a     B/ … a      Cthe … the      D/ … the

解析:答案为B。名词复数表类别,其前不用冠词,故第一个空格不填冠词,表不定概念的“一种”,“某种”要用不定冠词a。要准确掌握冠词表类别的三种表达方式和不定冠词常用的几种情况,见前面要点考点聚焦内容。

3. Paper money was in___________use in China when Marco Polo visited the country in __________thirteenth century.

Athe … /     Bthe … the  C/ … the       D/ … /

解析:答案为C。题中in use是固定搭配,意为“在使用”,use为抽象名词,其前不用冠词。后者是序数词前用定冠词the。要牢记一些固定搭配如in useunder construction(在建设中)、in debt(欠债)、come to power(执政)、on fire(着火)、at table(用餐)、out of work(失业)等。

4. When you come here for your holiday next time don’t go to       hotel; I can find you          bed in my flat.

A.  the; a        B.  the; 不填    C.  a; the        D.  a; 不填

解析:答案为C。考定语从句。主句部分应是The English play at the New Year’s party was a great success. 从句补全为独立句子就是my students acted in the play.所以应选in which,其余介词不妥。

5.John, there is         Mr. Wilson on the phone for you.

I’m in        bath.

A.  a; the      B.  the; a        C.  a; 不填      D.  the; 不填

解析:答案为A。本题考查冠词用法。a+姓名,表示“一个叫……的人”;in the bath在浴室。

6. Tom owns          larger collection of         books than any other student in our class.

A.  the; 不填  B.  a; 不填      C.  a; the        D.  不填; the

解析:答案为B。考冠词,collection是可数名词,须填冠词,被比较级修饰,但是大范围的比较,故填不定冠词,后一空是泛指的表类别的书,且已用了复数,不填冠词。故选B
