  67. D came out 表示出版,公布,这里表示报告的公布。
  68. C less 根据上下文可知这里说的是都市人口的增长,强调之前的少和现在的多,所以用少于更合适。less than:少于,不到。
  69. D by 在这里表示截止到某时间为止。
  70. A almost 几乎,将近,对前面的解释,说明人口有多少。
  71. B developed 根据上下文意思,以及后文相对的developing world可知应该是发达国家,即:developed countries
  72. C growth 仔细阅读的话可以发现下文就有答案,这里讲的是都市人口的增长,所以用growth
  73. B lead lead to表示导致,通向,本段末也有出现过,在这里是说都市化有助于社会和经济的进步。
  74. A pressure 从下文的描述可以看出过快的都市化也给城市带来了巨大压力,所以选pressure
  75. B services 服务,城市为人们提供住房和服务。
  76. B into 介词选择,move into 移入,迁入;固定搭配。


  77. C driven 表示推动,驱动,driven by 由…驱动,由什么原因引起的。
  78. C wealth 财富;social division and differences in wealth 社会分化和财富上的差距。
  79. C unless 除非,这里说的是除非城市规划更好,否则各部分财富分配不均的局面将可能导致犯罪问题。
  80. D expand 指扩张, expand into rural areas 扩张到农村地区。
  81. C at at a much faster rate 以更快的速度,固定搭配
  82. C common 表示某事件很普遍,平常。从下文的across America可知这种情况很普遍很常见。
  83. A major major cities,大城市,与后文中的smaller cities形成对比
  84. D trend 趋势,这里是对前面情况的概括,a trend toward de-urbanization 表示一种逆城市化的发展趋势。
  85. C but 表示转折,说城市还是有自身优点的,与前面的“逆城市化”形成转折关系。
  86. B possibilities 可能性,这里表示城市依然能够提供农村所不能提供的机会和可能性。
  这篇完型填空取材自2009年10月9日的VOA Special English节目,谈论的是城市发展的问题。从抓主旨的角度来说,这样一篇小小200词的文章,纵览了世界城市发展史,又横览了城市化带来的种种问题,里面的核心论点之间逻辑关联紧密,考生如果没有任何背景知识和推理能力,解题会遇到一定的困难。比如说第二个空格,很多考生在moreless之中犹豫不决,在没有具体背景信息的情况之下,就需要依据上下文的文脉进行推理。既然强调的是城市化的迅速发展,从5%到几乎70%,这个5%前面究竟填入超过还是不到。从作者的叙述语气一致可以推知,他必定在感叹这个变化的巨大,因此前文应该是不到5%。对于into/at这样一些介词小词的考查历来都是完型填空的重点,move into cities/ at a faster rate,这都是比较容易选择的基础搭配。


  87.___________________(为了确保他参加会议),I called him up in advance.
  解析:In order to ensure him to attend the meeting
  To ensure his attendance at the meeting
  【结构分析】本题句子的主干 “I called him up in advance”已经给出,无需翻译,需要翻译部分为“为了确保他能参加会议”。该部分在句子中作目的状语
  【考点解释】本题考查是目的状语。①目的状语可以由to/in order to来引导。②确保 ensure sb to do 确保某人做某事,ensure sth 确保某事
  88.The significant museum________________(据说建成于)about a hundred years ago.
  解析:is said to have been built
  【结构分析】本题句子的主语为the significant museum,缺谓语,即(据说建成于)
  about a hundred years ago为时间状语。
  【考点解释】本题重点考查:①被动语态。主语museum与动词build之间为被动关系; 且bulid这一动作发生在过去。②据说 be said tobe said to+ 动词不定式的完成时,表示不定式表示的动作已经完成。
  89.There would be no life on earth ____________________ (没有地球独特的环境)。
  解析: without its unique environment
  but for its unique environment
  【结构分析】本题句子含有There be结构。主干完整,there主语,would be 谓语,no life 表语,on earth 地点状语
  【考点解释】本题重点考查:①without的用法 without 是介词,后接名词;同时,表示“没有”,除without外,还可用but for;②单词拼写 unique adj.独特;environment n.环境 ③当名词重复出现时,可适当使用代词,避免重复。
  90.______________________________(给游客印象最深的)was the friendliness and warmth of the local people.
  解析:What impressed the tourists most
  【结构分析】本题句子为主系表结构,主语即考查部分,was 系动词,剩余部分为表语。
  【考点解释】本题重点考查①what引导的主语从句;what可引导句子充当主语;②impress用法 给…留下印象 impress sb;③最高级的用法most;结合考点②③,可推出“给…印象最深”为impress sb most
  91.They requested that ___________________________ (我借的书还回图书馆) by next Friday.
  解析:books I borrowed (should) be returned to the library
  I (should) return the book I borrowed to the library
  【结构分析】本题句子的主干部分分别是they 主语,request 谓语,后接that引导的宾语从句。
  【考点解释】①request的用法。request v. 要求;当request表示“要求”时,引导的宾语从句要使用虚拟语气,即(should)+ 动词原形。②定语从句。“我借的书”, the book (that) I borrowed;③单词的拼写。归还 return,借 borrow,图书馆 library ④本题就此题提供了两个版本的答案,但在表示“规定,规则”时,被动语态更为常用。
