[新版]2015职称英语教材新增文章理工类补全短文第九篇Lightening Strikes

来源:博大考神职称考试网 发布时间:2015-02-10
  2015年职称英语考试教材与2014年相比进行了一些调整,其中理工类补全短文解新增了《Lightening Strikes》,现在博大考神职称英语家庭式培训班专家和大家起来分享这篇文章。Threeyears ago a bolt of lightning all but destroyed Lyn Miller’s house inAberdeen—with her two children inside. “There was a huge rainstorm,” she says,recalling the terrifying experience. “My brother and I were outside desperatelyworking to stop floodwater from coming in the house. Suddenly I was thrown tothe ground by an enormous bang. _______1Thedoor was blocked by rubble, but we forced our way in and found the children,thankfully unharmed. Later I was told to be struck by lightning is a chance ina million.” In fact, it’s calculated at one chance in 600,000. Even so, Dr MarkKeys of AER Technology, an organisation that monitors the effects of lightning,thinks you should be sensible. “I wouldn’t go out in a storm—but then I’m quitea careful person.” He advises anyone who is unlucky enough to be caught in astorm to get down on the ground and curl up into a ball, making yourself assmall as possible.
  Lightning is one of nature’s most awesome displays of sheer power.________
2250years ago, Benjamin Franklin, the American scientist and statesmanprovedthat lightning is a form of electricity, but scientists still lack a completeunderstanding of how it works.
   _______
3Positiveelectrical charges streaming upwards from trees or church spires may glow andmake a buzzing noise, and people’s hair can stand on end. And if you fearlightning, you’ll be glad to know that a company in America has manufactured ahand-held lightning detector which can detect it up to 70 kms away, sound awarning tone and monitor the storm’s approach.
   NancyWilder was playing golf at a club in Surrey when she was hit by a bolt oflightning. Mrs Wilder’s heart stopped beating, but she was resuscitated and,after a few days in hospital, where she was treated for bums to her head, handsand feet, she was pronounced fit again. Since that time
shehas been a strictly fair weather golfer. _______4Thebest place to be is inside a car!
   Thelargest number of people to be struck by lightning at one time was in September1995 when 17 players on a football pitch were hit simultaneously. The mostextraordinary aspect of the strike was the fact that 11 of the victims—sevenadults and four children—had burn patterns of tiny holes at 3 centimetreintervals on each toe and around the soles of their feet.
   HaroldDeal, a retired electrician from South Carolina, USA, was struck by lightning26 years ago. He was apparently unhurt, but it later emerged that the strikehad damaged the part of the brain which controls the sensation of temperature._______

   Animalsare victims of lightning too
Hundreds ofcows and sheep are killed every year, largely because they go under trees. InEast Anglia in 1918, 504 sheep were killed instantaneously by the same bolt oflightning that hit the ground and travelled through the entire flock. Lightningis also responsible for starting more than 10,000 forest fires each yearworld-wide.
A. No wonder the ancient Greeks thought it was Zeus,  father of the gods, throwing thunderbolts around in anger.
B.
In fact, a golf course is one of the most dangerous  places to be during a thunderstorm.
C.
Lightning has long been hailed as one of the most  impressive displays of nature’s power.
D. When I picked myself up, the roof and the  entire upper storey of the house had been demolished.
E.
Occasionally there are warning signs.
F.
Since then the freezing South Carolina winters haven’t  bothered Harold, since he is completely unable to feel the cold.
1.________【正确答案】D【解题技巧&步骤】第一步:看横线前后是否出现与选项相同或相似的单词或结构以及相关的指代内容。横线前的句子是:SuddenlyI was thrown to the ground by an enormous bang.(突然,我被巨大的爆炸击倒在地。)那么推测后面就应该讲作者被击昏然后醒来之后的事。第二步:看六个选项, D. When I picked myself up, the roof and the entire upper storey of thehouse had been demolished.(当我爬起来的时候,房子的屋顶和顶楼都不见了。)这句中有“picked myself up”,表示作者自己爬起来,这里也就是指作者被击晕再醒来之后自己爬起来。而且横线后的句子:Thedoor was blocked by rubble, but we forced our way in and found the children,thankfully unharmed.也是对作者醒来之后所看到的景象的进一步的描述。所以正确答案为D选项。 2.________【正确答案】A【解题技巧&步骤】第一步:看横线前后是否出现与选项相同或相似的单词或结构以及相关的指代内容。横线前的句子是:Lightningis one of nature’s most awesome displays of sheer power.(闪电是大自然力量最可怕展现方式之一。)这句话说明了闪电的可怕性。第二步:看剩下的五个选项,A. No wonder the ancient Greeks thought it wasZeus, father of the gods, throwing thunderbolts around in anger.这个句子中出现有:Nowonder(难怪),Zeus(宙斯:是古希腊神话中力量的化身),这句话的意思是:难怪古希腊人认为雷电产生是因为众神之父宙斯发怒了,向周围投掷闪电,这也说明了闪电的威力,与横线前的句子表达的意思是一致的,填入横线处也是通顺达意的。所以正确答案为A选项。 》》》》更多精彩解析尽在博大考神职称英语家庭式培训班,点击了解!
