信息来源:新思达国际英语 发布时间:2016-01-06

  新思达武汉SAT培训学校的老师们为大家提供了2016年1月13日SAT预测,包括语法部分、词汇部分、阅读部分、写作部分。该预测-题目可能重复 :2013 年 6 月、12 月真题;2014 年 6 月、11 月真题;2015 年 6 月真题。


语法部分:


1.The job description called for an experienced person to update office files, responding to phone inquires, and do book keeping.

A. to update office files, responding

B. to update office files, respond

C. to be doing updates of office files, respond

D. for updating office files, responding

E. for the updating of office files, making responses


答案:B


解析:此题核心考点为平行结构,纵观全句不难发现,划线部分是个 to do, do and do 的结构,同时注意搭配 call for sb to do sth。研究历年真题发现,语法首题多考三个考点:平行结构、时态和句子结构完整性。


2. Scientists of the seventeenth century were concerned not only with the motion of the planets, and also with how that motion was related to practical applications.

A. planets, and also with

B. planets, but also with

C. planets, it was also

D. planets, as well as

E. planets, and therefor e


答案:B


解析:此题核心考点为 not only—but also 平行结构,not only 后面是 with+名词短语,故答案寻找 but also +with+名词即可,同时注意搭配 be concerned with/about, 真题中考核的多。


3.The group believes that multinational corporations should make greater efforts attaining workers in the countries in which the corporations build their factories.


A. multinational corporations should make greater efforts at training workers

B. multinational corporations should make greater efforts to train workers

C. multinational corporations ‘efforts for training workers, they should be greater

D. worker training should be done through greater multinational corporations efforts

E. workers who should be trained through greater efforts of multinational corporations


答案:B


解析:此题核心考点为 make efforts to do 固搭和句子结构,B 句式完整搭配准确;A选项 make efforts at doing 搭配错误;C 选项 efforts 和 they 双主语且逻辑混乱; D 选项被动,效果上输给 B; E 选项 workers 主语后是个 who 引导的定语从句,导致缺乏谓语动词。


4. Although Montana is one of the largest states in the United States, its population is almost 40 times smaller than California.

A. California

B. California is

C. California’s

D. is California

E. in California


答案:C


解析:此题核心考点平行结构,纵观全句,前比较对象是 Montana’s population,后比较对象自然是 California’s population, 如此轻松得出 C 选项为正确答案。ABD 其实一样,都是 population 和 California 这个州比,不平行。“is”可以放在 California前、后或省略。如:I’m taller than (are) you (are). E 选项形式不对,如果前面是 the population in Montana, E 可选。


5. Both the English springer spaniel and the Welsh springer spaniel makes a good house pet and an excellent sporting dog.

A. makes a good house pet and an excellent sporting dog

B. make good house pets and excellent sporting dogs

C. make good house pets as well as an excellent sporting dog

D. are good as house pet s, they are also excellent sporting dogs

E. is good as house pets and excellent as sporting dogs


答案:B


解析:此题核心考点平行结构,也可以说是前后单复数对应。纵观全句,前面是 both A and B,且是不同的两条狗,后面自然为复数名词,同时谓语动词必须复数,很容易选 B.


6. The proposed monorail linking the city and its suburbs will be built with private funds and have likely brought economic prosperity to the entire region.

A. and have likely brought

B. and are likely bringing

C. and is likely to bring

D. that it is likely to bring

E. that is likely to bring


答案:C


解析:此题核心考点为主谓一致和修饰,纵观全句,主语是 monorail, linking—suburbs 是修饰主语的定语,谓语给出了 will be built,中间 and 连接两个谓语,后面的谓语必须是单数,is likely to do,故选 C. 整个句子结构是一主两谓,且时态不一,例如:The manager will be promoted and is likely to be our boss. D that it is 跟 funds 无法对应,E that is 无法修饰 funds。


7. Once the dazzling capital of mighty ancient empire, a new generation hopes to restore the lost luster of the famous city, which fell victim to neglect.

A. a new generation hopes to r estore the lost luster of the famous city, which fell victim to neglect

B. what a new generation hopes to do is restore the famous city’s lost luster, a victim of neglect

C. the famous city, a victim of neglect, but with a new generation hoping to restore its lost luster

D. the famous city fell victim to neglect, but a new generation hopes to restore its lost luster

E. the famous city lost its luster, having fallen victim to neglect, which a new generation hopes to restore


答案:D


解析:此题核心考点为逻辑主语和句子结构。根据不划线部分“once the—capital”,后面主语必须是“the famous city”, 如此答案 CDE 中选。C 选项 but 前面为短语,后面是 with 短语,整个句子没谓语动词且逻辑混乱;E 选项用了 svo, having done结构,强调后面先发生,但实际情况应该 lose luster 和 fall victim 是同时发生,且后面定语从句 which 语法层面也不可能修饰主语 the city,但实际又必须要如此修饰,故错误。

(8) Consequently, they take up the cause of rescuing modern buildings from the wrecking ball-buildings that some people now consider architectural masterpieces.

(9) In several cases, they have persuaded municipal commissions to recognize architecturally significant structures of the postwar period as historic landmarks," a designation that protects buildings from being radically remodeled or demolished.

(10) Homeowners are pleasantly surprised to discover that a house that has been designated a landmark often rises in value.
