【答案与解析】

本文主要向人们讲述有关 Snowman 的一些情况,这种非人非兽的动物到底是否真的存许多人看法不一,尽管有人说他们看到了甚至抓到了 Snowman,但实际上却没有相应的证据。

1. B。根据下文中 Over the years, the story of the Yetis has continued. 和 These days, only a few people continue to take the story of the Abominable Snowman seriously 可知此题应填 story。

2. D。比较四个选项并根据下文的 in the 1920s 这一信息,可知此题选 D 最佳。

3. C。指当地人听说过(know of)这种动物。其他几项均不合句意,注意不要选 A,hear from 的意思是“收到…的来信”,但若改为 hear of 则可以。

4. A。even 用于加强语气,意为“甚至”。

5. B。前面说 they had even caught Yetis on two occasions,而后面又说none has ever been produced as evidence,比较四个选项,只有选though 意义才最合适。

6. D。文章第1段说Climbers in the 1920s reported finding marks like those of human feet high up on the side of Mount Everest,第2段又说 In 1951, Eric Shipton took photographs of a set of tracks in the snow of Everest,有关 Yetis 的传说在继续(continue)流传。

7. D。比较四个选项的意思:entirely=整个地;naturally=自然地;clearly=清楚地;simply=只是,仅仅。同时结合本句语境以下与下文 the Abominable snowman might really exist 的逻辑关系,选项 D 最合适。

8. C。此处的 felt 与前一句的 believed 大致同义,均表示当事人的主观判断。

9. A。Shipton 认为那不仅仅是猴子或熊的足迹,也就是说他认为 Abominable Snowman 真正存在的可能性。

10. B。根据文章第2段中的 Climbers in the 1920s reported finding marks like those of human feet high up on the side of Mount Everest,以及 Further efforts have been made to find out about Yetis 和其后的 Most believe the footprints are nothing more than ordinary animal tracks 可知此题填 more 最佳。

11. C。本句语境为:大多数人认为这不过是普通(ordinary)野兽的足迹。空格前的 nothing more than 意为“和…一样”。

12. B。根据常识并比较四个选项,可知选项 B 最合适。注意空格后的 As they melted and refroze in the snow 说明了人们发现的脚印要比普通的动物足迹大的原因。

13. D。下句说 in 1964, a Russian scientist said that the Abominable Snowman was real and was a remaining link with the prehistoric humans,这与句说的“大部分人认为脚印只不过是普通动物的足迹”为转折关系,故填 However。

14. B。前后两句意思转折,看法相反——即苏联科学家认为 Abominable Snowman 的确存在。

15. 第4至5空处说“有人说他们有两次还捉住了 Yetis 但是没有证据”,此处又说“没有证据”,故填 again。

16. B。比较四个选项,此处填 actually(实际上)较合适。

17. C。由于找不到雪人存在的证据,现在人们对有关雪人的故事已经冷淡下来,只有很少人认真对待此事。take sth seriously 意为“认真对待某事”。

18. A。四个选项后均可接动名词,但意义不同:succeed in doing sth=成功地做好某事,insist on doing sth=坚持做某事,depend on doing sth=依靠做某事,join in doing sth=参加做某事。结合下文语境,此题选 A 最佳。

19. D。冒号后引出的是一个“问题”,故填 problem。

20. A。由于雪人是 Half-man, half-beast,所以若真的抓到了雪人,那到底是应将其当作 beast 关时动物园呢,还是将其当作 man 让其住进宾馆?——这倒真是个问题。
