在考評局2012年派發的Practice Paper 1 (Part A),有23題,Meaning題佔四題,即Questions 3141516,四條都不難,有同學仔靠這類題目合格。 

我在2011420日寫過這類題目:http://englishwizard.mysinablog.com/index.php?op=ViewArticle&articleId=2990007。這次用practice paper 補充資料。 

Question 3(這條沒有甚麽難度,cluetext裡的educationquestion裡的information

Which meaning of ‘resource’ is closest to the meaning used in line 10?
A.      a country’s source of wealth or revenue
e.g. Minerals are an important resources in Australia.
B.      a source of information or expertise
e.g. Books are an important resource for study.
C.      an ability to meet and handle a situation
e.g. Employers will find Mary’s initiative an attractive resource.
D.     a supply of materials that can be drawn on when needed.
e.g. Low income families have fewer financial resources. 

Text

For all these people, zoos and aquariums are a resource for wildlife education, motivators for environmental stewardship and a place for family recreation.

 Question 14 (這條沒有甚麽難度,cluetext裡的a whaledead,以及questionviolently。因為是被pulled underwater,不似是和whaleplay (A),人沒有能力和whalefight (B),而swim quickly不會導致dead (C)move about violently (D)就會。)

In line 73, what does ‘thrashed’ mean? A.      to play withB.      to fight withC.      to swim very quicklyD.     to move about violently 

Text

In February 2010, at the Sea World amusement park in Florida, USA, a whale grabbed a trainer, Dawn Brancheau, pulled her underwater and thrashed about with her.  By the time the rescuers arrived, Brancheau was dead.

 Question 15 (這條有點像考同義詞,難度不高,前幾行看似無關,可以很快略過,在Did the whale開始仔細找,照抄亦有分。)

Find TWO phrases in paragraph 7 that mean the same as ‘being kept a prisoner’. (2 marks)
a)      being held captive
b)      in close confinement /being held in close confinement 

Text

[7] In February 2010, at the Sea World amusement park in Florida, USA, a whale grabbed a trainer, Dawn Brancheau, pulled her underwater and thrashed about with her.  By the time the rescuers arrived, Brancheau was dead.  The death of the trainer is a tragedy, and one can only have sympathy for her family.  But the incident raises broader questions: was the attack deliberate?  Did the whale, nicknamed Tilly, act out of stress at being held captive in a sterile concrete tank?  Was he tired of being forced to perform to amuse the crowds?  Is it right to keep such large animals in close confinement?

 Question 16(這條看下框brown的上下文應能答對,若你懂pointing the finger at這個phrase,不看text也應答對,若你將pointing the finger at照字解字解成「手指指」也應能答對)

What does the expression ‘pointing the finger at’ mean in line 114?
A.      to look at an issue closely
B.      to put the blame on someone
C.      to address someone rudely
D.     to query someone or something 

Text

Joyce Tischler, of the Animal Legal Defence Fund, described keeping a six-tonne whale in Sea World’s tanks as akin to keeping a human in a bathtub for his entire life.
[11] But if we are pointing the finger at Sea World, we should also look more broadly at the way we confine performing animals.  In most zoos, visitors see bored animals pacing back and forth in cages, with nothing to do but wait for the next meal.
