【答案与解析】本文主要讲述四名大学生为抗议大卡车穿过小镇时所产生的噪音,采取“以毒攻毒”的手段,来到钟楼连续敲钟,通过产生更大的噪音,以迫使政府改变现状。

1. D。若不通读全文,此题很难选择。此题的答题依据是第23空后的 I mean we are assistant bell ringers for the church。

2. C。ring the bells 意为“敲钟”。答题依据是第23空后的bell-ringers。

3. B。从下文的 They make it difficult to sleep at night 可推知答案选 B。短语 day and night 的意思是“日夜”。

4. B。既然四名大学生要敲钟抗议,说明这些卡车噪得市民夜晚难(difficult)以入睡。

5. A。do damage to 是固定词组,其意为“对…造成危害”。

6. C。historical interest 指“历史名胜”。

7. A。比较四个选项,A 最合适,if 在此引出假设条件。

8. D。学生建议新修道路绕(round)镇而过,而不是穿(through)该镇而过。

9. C。这里说的是该镇是一个比村庄大不了多少的小镇。也正因为如此,所以上面讲到的“要绕镇修路”是可行的。

10. B。be meant for 是习语,意为“为某一目的而安排或适合于做某事”。如:These chairs are meant for guests. 这些椅子是为客人们安排的。

11. C。根据信息词 also studying 和前面一段中的 a biology student 可推知,Harry Fields 是学“生物学”的。

12. D。根据文章第 1 段的交待(四名大学生敲钟抗议)可知答案选 D。make as much noise as possible 意为“尽可能制造噪音”。

13. C。制造噪音的目的是为了迫使政府意识到目前声音污染的现状。

14. A。stand 意为“忍受、经受”。

15. B。下文说到“他们进城来是为了开会之类…”,由此可推知,“大多数的官员不住在城里”。

16. B。so 表示因果关系。

17. A。由于大多数官员不住在城里,且市政大厅又是隔音,所以知官员们不会注意到(notice)噪音。

18. D。比较四个选项可知 D 最佳。

19. C。由于四名大学生敲钟抗议城里的噪音污染,这是件对大家有益的事,所以从情理上看,“公众大部分会站在他们一边(支持他们)”。

20. A。根据文章最后一句可知“我”(I)是采访此事的记者。

21. B。根据常识可知选项 B 最合语境。

22. D。stop 表示“制止”。

23. A。根据后面的 I mean we are assistant bell-ringers for the church 可知,此题填 proper 最合适。

24. D。四名之所以不怕警察来制止他们,是因为并没有法律(law)规定不准 assistant bell-ringers 练习敲钟。

25. A。采访结束,作者离开(left)教堂,但钟声还在耳边鸣响。
