  ANSWERS :

  1.选I 空格中要填词为who引导的定语从句中的谓语动词,可知此处应填动词的过去式。可选项有had, occurred和happened,首先空格所在的who引导的定语从句修饰的是tourists“游客”,happened to be in Greece“碰巧在希腊”是符合这样的语境的,而had to “不得不”和occur to表示“想起,想到”都不能使句意通顺。

  2.选L and引导两个意思相近的并列结构,由the standard was not high“标准不高”可知,此处要填的是和not high语气一致的形容词,再由前两句可知,参赛的国家很少并且有很多很多游客参加了比赛,这说明这次比赛没有那么正式,选项中只有informal符合题意。选项irregular则一般表示“(形状)不规则的,(安排)无规律的”,与句意不符,故排除。

  3.选M 从句中的except可知在两次世界大战中没有比赛,说明的是奥运会因战争而中断。选项中有end和interruption可表示停止,end“终断”,表示某事中断后不再继续,interruption“中断”,表示某事中断后仍然继续,故选择interruption。

  4.选J 本句主系表结构完整,由此可知,此处应填副词,修饰整个句子。选项中有definitely和especially,从句意来理解,这......违背了古老的奥林匹克精神,将definitely“显然地”带入原文,符合原文的意思;而especially“特别地”表示强调,而此处表示的则是通过比较后得出结果,故排除especially。

  5.选K 奥林匹克比赛中的两个最重要的方面就是竞技水平和运动精神,由grown enormously in scale可知,现在参加奥林匹克运动会规模渐大,运动员逐渐增多,因此应理解为体育竞技水平达到了前所未有的高度,因此应选physical。

  6.选D 此处应填形容词。由Unfortunately和because of the political prestige and commercial profit可推出,不幸的是各国竞争举办奥运的目的是为了政治威望与利益,可见此处说明的是与体育成绩相对应的运动会的道德水准没有得到相应的提高,选项中只有moral符合题意。

  7.选A 此处应填名词。各国争夺举办奥运会,to hold the games是一种实力象征,也是一种荣耀。选项中有honour和power可选,power一般指“(个人或团体所掌握或获得的)职权”,故排除power而选honour“荣幸”。

  8.选C 此处应填动词的被动形式,这里考查的是动词have的一个搭配用法即have something out of something“从......中得到......”,故这里选这C)had,表示“举办奥运会带来的政治威望和商业利润。”

  9.选H cme to power是固定搭配,意为“(开始)掌权,上台”。

  10.选B 此处应填动词的原形。可选项有accomplish,arrive和end,arrive一般指“到达(某地)”,end强调的是“(使某事)结束”,因此都不能与journey搭配,故排除arrive和end而选accomplish“完成”。
