试题内容
   Hillary Rodham Clinton released the first television spot of her Senate campaign this morning, a 30-second commercial that will begin airing statewide on Thursday. The spot, titled "First," uses numerous still photos to highlight landmarks in Mrs. Clinton's career, while the voiceover says she is "more than a first lady."

  There is no mention of Mrs. Clinton's rival for New York's Senate seat, New York Mayor Rudolph Giuliani.

  Clinton campaign spokesman Howard Wolfson said the ad was "positive" and "biographical," instead of focusing on the first lady's opponent.

  Mrs. Clinton has previously aired radio ads, but has generally stayed with a strategy of making extensive campaign appearances instead of using television spots, while Giuliani has already run statewide TV ads.

  Text of Hillary Commercial:

  First she became a lawyer, named one of the top hundred in America.

  Her first cause was children, fighting abuse and chairing the board of the Children's Defense Fund.

  Her first priority was public schools, helping to establish teacher testing.

  More than a first lady. For 30 years, she's fought for children and families.

  As New York's senator, she'll fight for better schools and heath care for children.

  Hillary, Put her to work for all of us.

1.[单选题]Hillary's campaign focuses on all the flowing except_____. 
  • A.children's health care
  • B.school education for children 
  • C.combating child abuse 
  • D.family planning policy
  • 解题思路:本题提问的是以下哪一下不是希拉里的竞选重点。希拉里的竞选广告在文章的最后几段里;它的重点是学校教育;作者评论道,在过去的30年里,希拉里一直都在为儿童和家庭的幸福斗争。将来当了纽约的参议员,她会为孩子们的良好教育和健康保险而努力;由此我们得知,选项A(儿童健康保险)B(儿童的学校教育)和C(打击虐待儿童现象)都是她的竞选重点,只有选项D(计划生育政策)与原文不合,所以,D为本题答案。
2.[单选题]What does the word "air" in the first sentence mean?  
  • A.dry
  • B.express  
  • C.breathe
  • D.broadcast
  • 解题思路:本题提问的是第一段中的"air"是什么意思。由这句话我们可以得知,希拉里今天早晨发表了她竞选纽约州议员的电视宣传;为时30分钟的电视宣传将于星期二开始进行全国播放。由该句的意思我们可以猜出"air"的意思为"播放"。所以,答案为D。而其他三个词A(晒干),B(表达)和C(呼吸)均与原义不符,故不能入选。
3.[单选题]Which of the following statement is true regarding the Senator campaign according the passage? 
  • A.Hillary has appeared on TV shot for numerous times.
  • B.Hillary rarely makes her public appearance. 
  • C.Giuliani has made TV advertisement for himself.
  • D.Hillary has a bigger chance to win the campaign.
  • 解题思路:本题提问的是对此次参议院竞选,以下哪一个说法是正确的。文章的第四段告诉我们,希拉里以前曾经在广播上作过宣传,但是她一直采取的战略是频频在公众场合出现,而不是使用电视宣传;与她不同的是,Giuliani已作过全国电视宣传。由该段可知,选项C为正确答案。从文章的第一句话我们可以得知,这是希拉里第一次在电视上为自己作宣传,所以,选项A和B不符合原文;此次议员竞选,花落谁手尚未分晓,所以,选项D也不能入选。
4.[单选题]What does "more than first lady" in the first paragraph suggest?
  • A.Hillary is not a first lady.
  • B.Hillary does much more than what a first lady is expected to do.
  • C.There are more women in America who does better than Hillary does.
  • D.Hillary is doing better than her husband.
  • 解题思路:本题提问的是第一段里"more than first lady"是什么意思。在世界各地,第一夫人作为国家元首的妻子,是一国之母,她的形象一般是一个帮助总统处理好家务,并且进行一些妇女活动和慈善事业,借此来提高元首的形象。但是,希拉里作为第一夫人,她所做的超出了第一夫人的职责。她不但在社会活动中经常露脸,而且直接参与政事,开始竞选起议员来了。所以,选项B应该是该题的答案。
5.[单选题]Which of the following can best serve as the title of this passage?  
  • A. First Lady's Senator Campaign
  • B. Hillary's TV Advertisement
  • C. A Rivalry for New York's Senate Seat
  • D. The Focuses of Hillary Campaign
  • 解题思路:本文从第一夫人希拉里-克林顿为其入选纽约参议员拉开序幕讲起,对目前的竞选状况作了一个大概介绍,并且对希拉里的竞选内容作了一个介绍,同时,作者表达了他自己的观点;整篇文章以介绍她的竞选情况为主,所以,选项A(第一夫人竞选参议员)用以概括全文最为全面,因此,A为正确答案。
