In fact, a name is a word or phrase that man uses to denote and identify a specific person, place or thing. There is no inexorable correlation between the sign and "the signified". For this reason, some claim that names are not so vital as they are supposed to be. However, I am fully convinced that they are of great importance. Take the name of a person as an example. It is known to all that a person's name is divided into two parts: given name and surname. The given name is the name our parents assign us. We ourselves might change it later in our life. Usually, when a name is given, it contains a lot of information. Say, "li" in the name of some Chinese females shows that we wish them to "beautiful" while "wei" in the names of some males reveals that we expect them to be "great" in their future life. As to the surname or family name, it is even more important, so important that some people may sacrifice their life for it. Originally, man had no such a name. But ever since a certain name was given, each member of the family carries it wherever he goes. Rather than merely a sign, it is the root from which we can trace back to our ancestor, the tie that helps bind us to other members of the same clan, the dignity most people hope to live for. Apart from the name of a person, that of a place or thing is also significant in that it embodies history and culture. All in all, though names are assigned artificially, man is not free when giving names. But God is.
60. The author believes that, since the signing of the Kyoto Protocol，____。
A. politicians have started to do something to better the situation
B. few nations have adopted real tough measures to limit energy use
The passage (author)…………….mainly because____?
C. reductions in energy consumption have greatly cut back global warming
Which of the following is chiefly responsible for……..?
D. international cooperation has contributed to solving environmental problems
………………………is largely due to________?
What is the main reason for ________?
No government will adopt rigid restrictions on economic growth and personal freedom (limits on electricity usage, driving and travel)that might cut back global warming. Still, politicians want to show they're “doing something”. Consider the Kyoto Protoco(京都议定书). It allowed countries that joined to punish those that didn't. But it hasn't reduced CO2 emissions(up about 25% since 1990)， and many signatories(签字国) didn't adopt tough enough policies to hit their 2008-2012 targets。
文中关于京都议定书的内容提到：It allowed countries that joined to punish those that didn't. But it hasn't reduced CO2 emissions(up about 25% since 1990)，and many signatories(签字国) didn't adopt tough enough policies to hit their 2008-2012 targets。这是四六级阅读中常考的细节题，要求考生根据题目，对文章的细节信息做出正确的理解，那么，明确重点内容就成为解决这类题型的关键所在！这里出现了明显转折词but，说明有关京都议定书的重点内容应该位于but之后，而but之后的信息告诉我们，京都议定书的签订并未降低二氧化碳的排放量，且多数签字国并未实施有力的政策去实现他们2008年到2012的环保目标。对比选项，我们不难发现B项：few nations have adopted real tough measures to limit energy use正确描述了转折之后的内容，为该题目的正确答案。
1.The foremost reason why the BBC has to readjust itself is no other than ______________. (96年passage2第4题)
A. The emergence of commercial TV channel
57. What's the opinion of economists about going to college?
B. The enforcement of Broadcasting Act by the government
A. Huge amounts of money is being wasted on campus socializing。
C. The urgent necessity to reduce costs and jobs
B. It doesn't pay to run into debt to receive a college education。
D. The challenge of new satellite channels
C. College education is rewarding in spite of the startling costs。
原文：Yet the BBC will have to change, because the broadcasting world round it is changing. The commercial TV channels—ITV and Channel 4---were required by the Thatcher Government’s Broadcasting Act to become more commercial, competing with each other for advertisers, and cutting costs and jobs. But it is the arrival of new satellite channels---funded partly by advertising and partly by viewers’ subscriptions---which will bring about the biggest changes in the long term
D. Going to college doesn't necessarily bring the expected returns。
2. According to the author, the great outburst of major inventions in early America was in a large due to _______. (96年passage4第1题)
根据题干，我们定位到文章第一段：There are few more sobering online activities than entering data into college-tuition calculators and gasping as the Web spits back a six-figure sum. But economists say families about to go into debt to fund four years of partying, as well as studying, can console themselves with the knowledge that college is an investment that, unlike many bank stocks, should yield huge dividends。文中再次出现转折词but，虽然前文指出，没有什么活动能够比输入大学学费计算器并得出一个六位数的总和更使人感到清醒，但是在but之后，经济学者指出大学会产生很大的收益。因此，在对比选项中我们不难发现C项：College education is rewarding in spite of the startling costs正确对应了原文转折之后的信息，为该题目的正确答案。
A. elementary schoolsB. enthusiastic workers
C. the attractive premium systemD. a special way of thinking
原文：Among the many shaping factors, I would single out the country’s excellent elementary schools; a labor force that welcomed the new technology; the practice of giving premiums to inventors: and above all the American genius for nonverbal, “spatial” thinking about things technological.
63. What does Paula Courtney imply by saying “ … the shopper must also find a replacement” (Line 2， Para. 4)？
3. According to the author, what may chiefly be responsible for the moral decline of Japanese society?(00年passage4第2题)
A. New customers are bound to replace old ones。
A. Women’s participation in social activities is limited.
B. It is not likely the shopper can find the same products in other stores。
B. More workers are dissatisfied with their jobs.
C. Most stores provide the same kind of service。
C. Excessive emphasis has been placed on the basics.
D. Not complaining to the manager causes the shopper some trouble too。
D. The lifestyle has been influenced by western values.
根据题干中给出的位置，我们回到文中第四段："Storytelling hurts retailers and entertains consumers," said Paula Courtney, President of the Verde group。“ the store loses the customer, but the shopper must also find a replacement。”这是四六级阅读中常考的语义题，要求考生结合上下文的理解，来推理引号内容的言外之意，因此，擅于把握句与句之间的逻辑关系就显得格外重要！从文中看出，but前的内容告诉我们，“商店失去了顾客”，流失顾客对于商店而言造成了一定的伤害，我们都知道所谓“转折前后，含义相反”，那么but后这句话字面含义是“顾客也必须找到替代品”，通过转折前后，含义相反的方式理解，不难得出其内涵是站在顾客这个角度来分析顾客的麻烦，由此我们可得出正确答案为D项：Not complaining to the manager causes the shopper some trouble too。
原文： But that may have more to do with Japanese lifestyle.
4. According to the text, the cost increase in the rail industry is mainly caused by ______ (03年passage3第5题)
53. What does the author mean by “Nature is indifferent to human notions of fairness” (Line 1， Para. 2)？
A. The continuing acquisition.
A.Nature is quite fair regarding the survival of turtles。
B. The growing traffic.
B.Turtles are by nature indifferent to human activities。
C. The cheering Wall Street.
C.The course of nature will not be changed by human interference。
D. The shrinking market.
D.The turtle population has decreased in spite of human protection。
原文：many captive shippers also worry they will soon be hit with a round of huge rate increases. The railroad industry as a whole, despite its brightening fortunes, still does not earn enough to cover the cost of the capital it must invest to keep up with its surging traffic. Yet railroads continue to borrow billons to acquire one another, with Wall Street cheering them on.
我们根据题目给出的位置回到原文：For hundreds of millions of years, turtles (海龟) have struggled out of the sea to lay their eggs on sandy beaches, long before there were nature documentaries to celebrate them, or GPS satellites and marine biologists to track them, or volunteers to hand-carry the hatchlings (幼龟) down to the water's edge lest they become disoriented by headlights and crawl towards a motel parking lot instead. A formidable wall of bureaucracy has been erected to protect their prime nesting on the Atlantic coastlines. With all that attention paid to them, you'd think these creatures would at least have the gratitude not to go extinct。
5. Female capuchin moneys were chosen for the research most probably because they are _____. (05年passage1第3题)
But Nature is indifferent to human notions of fairness, and a report by the Fish and Wildlife Service showed a worrisome drop in the populations of several species of North Atlantic turtles, notably loggerheads, which can grow to as much as 400 pounds. The South Florida nesting population, the largest, has declined by 50% in the last decade, according to Elizabeth Griffin, a marine biologist with the environmental group Oceana. The figures prompted Oceana to petition the government to upgrade the level of protection for the North Atlantic loggerheads from “threatened” to “endangered”-meaning they are in danger of disappearing without additional help。看到如此画面，多数同学顿时泪奔，心想莫非要把如此多的文字全部啃下来才能做对这道题吗？实则不然！我们只需要重点关注一个叫but的小伙伴，因为这个可爱的小家伙可以明确指出上下文逻辑和含义的向反性！but前告诉我们人类在以各种各样的方式保护海龟，以免海龟走向绝种，而but后这句话字面意思是“大自然对于人类的公平概念是冷漠的”，我们通过转折前后，含义相反的思路来理解，不难得出其内涵为：人类虽付出了很多努力，但努力并未奏效，海龟还是在走向绝种，因此复合我们判断的选项只有D项：The turtle population has decreased in spite of human protection。
A. More inclined to weigh what they get.
B. Attentive to researchers’ instructions.
综上所述，转折逻辑是我们在精确阅读中砍分的利器！因此，当文章中出现：but, however, while, yet, instead(of)， still, on the contrary等表示转折逻辑的单词或短语时，请大家打起十二分精神，因为答案正在向你走来！
C. Nice in both appearance and temperament
D. More generous than their male companions.
原文：the researchers studied the behavior of female brown capuchin monkeys. They look cute. They are good natured, co-operative, creatures, and they share food readily. Above all, like their female human counterparts, they tend to pay much closer attention to the value of “goods and services” than males.
