    1. B 句意:包裹是一个很长很窄的用棕色纸很仔细地包着的盒子。根据句意,此处表示包装的方式“很仔细地”,所以选Bstrictly“严格地”; roughly“粗糙地”;casually“随意地”。

    2. A 句意:打开盒子,奥斯卡看到里面是一把雨伞。此处opening是现在分词作状语,因为和主语Oscar之间是主动关系,故用opening

    3. D 句意:尽管他有20多年没有看到过它了,但他还是立即认出了它。此处表示让步关系,故用Although

    4. C 相关句意见第3题解析。此处表示奥斯卡立刻认出了雨伞,故选immediatelyclearly“清楚地”;fully“完全地”;suddenly“突然地”,均不符合句意。

    5. B 句意:当第一次看到这把特殊的雨伞时,奥斯卡16岁。根据文章第二段的描述可知,这是一把特殊的雨伞,所以用unusualaverageplain均表示“一般的、普通的”,不符合文意。typical“典型的”,也不符合文意。

    6. A 句意:因为感觉它非常漂亮,奥斯卡特别想找到它的主人。此处表示奥斯卡对这把伞的漂亮印象很深刻,所以用beautyshape“形状”;origin“起源”;history“历史”。文章中并没有提及奥斯卡对雨伞的形状、来源及历史的关注,BCD三项均不符合句意。

    7. D 相关句意见6题解析。此处指雨伞的主人。designer“设计者”;seller“销售者”;user“使用者”,均不符合句意。

    8. A 句意:奥斯卡说服经理去查看票务预订记录。根据句意此处是说服之意,故选A项,convinced“说服”。force“强迫”;encourage“鼓励”;advise“建议”。

    9. D 句意:正如他所想的,有一个名字和奥斯卡发现雨伞的座位匹配。此空考查定语从句的关系词,因为先行词是seat,且关系词在定语从句中作地点状语,故用where

    10. C 句意:奥斯卡说服了他的祖父母在回家时路过奥布俐太太家。这里指的家是位置概念,所以用housefamily指“家庭或家人”;theater“剧院”;neighborhood“邻居,社区”,均不符合句意。

    11. B 句意:“需要什么帮助吗?”她问道。这是对敲门的陌生人的客套问话。

    12. D 句意:……奥斯卡说着,同时拿出那把雨伞,像呈上一份似乎是渴望多年的礼物一样。hold out“拿出,呈上”,符合句意。put up“搭建,张贴”;turn out“结果是,关掉”;pick up“拿起,搭载,学会”,均不符合句意。

    13. C 相关句意见12题解析。根据文意此处指礼物,所以用giftchance“机会”;fact“事实”;result“结果”,均不符合句意。

    14. A 句意:……奥布俐太太开心地笑着回答,她眼中闪着光。wide smile指“笑得很开心”。

    15. B 句意:我可以为你的善良给予回报吗?此处用kindness,符合句意,指奥斯卡主动送还雨伞这件事。patience“耐心”;courage“勇气”;determination“决心”,均不符合句意。

    16. C 句意:哦,那正是我父亲过去常常对我讲的。此处exactly表示“正好,恰好”。obviously“明显地”;naturally“自然地”;probably“也许”,均不符合句意。

    17. A 根据上文“Years later”可知,此处用old rare“稀有的”;precious“宝贵的”;nice“好的”,均不符合句意。

    18. D 句意:好像是为了回答他的疑问,一个便条从纸袋里掉了下来。根据文意,奥斯卡对这把雨伞心存疑问,就在这时纸条掉了下来,所以用in answer,与上文的问句相呼应。in contrast“与此相反”;in return“作为回报”;in exchange“作为交换”,均不符合句意。

    19. B 句意:上面写道:奥布俐太太希望你接受这把雨伞,作为多年前你善良无私行为的一份礼物。根据文意,这里是指请奥斯卡接受这份礼物,故用accept &cooco.Net.cng

    20. C 相关句意见上题解析。根据句意,此处指无私的行为,所以用unselfishattractive“有吸引力的”;significant“意义重大的,重要的”;sympathetic“同情的,有同情心的”,均不符合句意。
