2020年6月大學英語四級閱讀理解模擬題(5)

來源:中華考試網   2020-01-29   【

  Engineering students are supposed to be examples of practicality and rationality, but when it comes to mycollege education I am an idealist and a fool. In high school I wanted to be an electrical engineer and, of course,any sensible student with my aims would have chosen a college with a large engineering department,famous reputation and lots of good labs and research equipment. But that‘s not what I did.

  I chose to study engineering at a small liberal-arts(文科)university that doesn‘t even offer a major in electrical engineering. Obviously, this was not a practical choice; I came here for more noble reasons. I wanted a broad education that would provide me with flexibility and a value system to guide me in my career.I wanted to open my eyes and expand my vision by interacting with people who weren’t studying science orengineering. My parents, teachers and other adults praised me for such a sensible choice. They told me I was wise and mature beyond my 18 years,and I believed them.

  I headed off to college sure I was going to have an advantage over those students who went to big engineering “factories” where they didn‘t care if you have values or were flexible. I was going to be a complete engineer: technical genius and sensitive humanist(人文學者)all in one.

  Now I‘m not so sure. Somewhere along the way my noble ideals crashed into reality, as all noble ideals eventually do. After three years of struggling to balance math, physics and engineering courses with liberal-arts courses,I have learned there are reasons why few engineering students try to reconcile(協調) engineering with liberal-arts courses in college.

  The reality that has blocked my path to become the typical successful student is that engineering and the liberal arts simply don’t mix as easily as I assumed in high school. Individually they shape a person in very different ways; together they threaten to confuse. The struggle to reconcile the two fields of study is difficult.

  練習題:

  Choose correct answers to the question:

  B. irrational

  C. ambitious

  D. Unrealistic

  5. The word“they”in“together they threaten to confuse.”(Line 3,Para. 5) refers to ________.

  A. practicality and rationality

  B. engineering and the liberal arts

  C. reality and noble ideals

  D. flexibility and a value system

  1.[C] 事實細節題。根據文中第2段第3、4句的具體說明以及第3段末句的概括說明“我將成為一個完整的工程師:集理性的技術天才和感性的人文學者于一體。”可知C正確。

  2.[A] 事實推理題。由文章第2段第4句“我想通過與非理工科的同學的相互交往來開闊我的視野”,可推斷出A正確。其他均無原文依據或斷章取義。

  3.[B] 事實推理題。第3段后一句說,“我將成為一個完整的工程師:集技術天才和人文學者于一體”,B“成為視野寬闊的技術天才”與原文相符,故選B。A、C、D均無原文支持或斷章取義。

  4.[D] 事實推理題。根據第4段第2句“我的崇髙理想與現實發生了沖突”,以及下文對于作者在協調文理科之間的困難可知,原文的想法是不現實的,故可推斷D正確。

  5.[B] 詞義理解題。they—般指代前一句話中的復數名詞,根據后一段的第1、2句“…engineering and the liberal arts simply don’t mix as easily…together they threaten to confuse”可以推斷,they指的是engineering and the liberal arts。
