To swim across the English Channel takes at least nine hours.It's a hard work and it makes you short of breath. To fly over the Channel takes only twenty minutes (as long as you're not held up at the airport) , but it's an expensive way to travel.You can travel by hovercraft if you don't mind the noise, and that takes forty minutes. Otherwise you can go by boat, if you forget your sea-sickness ills. All these means of transport have their problems and the weary(不耐烦的)traveler often dreams of being able to drive to France in his own car. "Not possible", you say, Well, wait a minute.People are once again considering the idea of a Channel tunnel or bridge.

This time, the Greater London Council is looking into the possibility of building a Channel link straight to London. A bridge would cost far more than a tunnel, but you would be able to go by rail or by car on a bridge, whereas a tunnel would provide ar all link only.

Why is this idea being discussed again? Is Britain becoming more conscious of the need for links with Europe as a result of joining the EEC(欧供体)? Well, perhaps.The main reason, though, is that a tunnel or bridge would reach the twenty square kilometers of London's disused dockland(船坞地). A link from London to the continent would stimulate trade and re-vitalize(使……重新有活力)the port, and would make London a main trading center in Europe. With alink over the Channel, you could buy your fish and chips in England, and be able to eat them in France while they were still warm!

2.A tunnel would be ( ).

4.It can be concluded that many of London's dockyards are ( ).

A.not used

B.seriously blocked

C.fully used

D.opened again

5.Channel link would ( ).

B.make the journey from Europe to England dangerous but easier and faster

C.decrease more trade forLondon's dockyards

D.makeLondon more prosperous again

【答案及解析】

1.【解析】C

推理判断题。可用排除法:开篇第一句已清楚地说明游过英吉利海峡至少要九小时,所以A说少于四小时是不对的;第一段最后一句中有一个非常重要的词,就是again.既然是again就说明建隧道、修大桥已不是新想法了,B也随之被淘汰;根据文章第二段第一句,隧道可直达伦敦,不只到海岸线,D也排除了。而C是正确的,游过去当然要比坐船、乘飞机困难多了。

2.【解析】A

事实细节题。根据文章第二段第二句,建隧道要比建大桥便宜得多。

3.【解析】B

事实细节题。根据文章第二段第二句,隧道里只能供火车行走。

4.【解析】A

事实细节题。根据文章第三段第四句,伦敦的船坞地都是disused(废弃不用的)。

5.【解析】D

事实细节题。文章最后一段倒数第二句,这条路能够激活贸易,使伦敦成为欧洲的一个商业中心,所以当然会使伦敦繁荣起来。A显然低估了这条通路的作用;B.C谈到的作用都是负面的。
