Questions 36 to 45 are based on the following passage.
At age 17, as a senior in high school, Kavita Shukla filed for her second patent: a piece of paper that would transform how food is stored and kept fresh. Ten years later, her product is being used in 35 countries, has been called "the 1paper" and was recently launched in Whole Foods. Fresh Paper is infused with organic spices that inhibit 2 and fungal growth; when stored with produce, it can keep food fresh two to four times longer than normal--like refrigeration without electricity. The spice mixture comes from an old family recipe passed along by Shukla's grandmother, who once gave it to her after she 3 drank tap water on a visit to India. "Drink this and you won't get sick," she was told.
On Friday, Shukla was joined onstage at the Women in the World Summit in New York by Rula Jebreal, a 4and foreign-policy expert at MSNBC (微软全国有线广播电视公司). Jebreal lamented the fact that while the world's farmers actually produce enough food to feed the world's hungry, 13 billion tons of food are lost annually to spoilage. What's more, some 1.6 billion people currently living without 5 to refrigeration struggle to keep their diets healthy. Shukla's company, Fenugreen, which she started in 2010, 6 these people, along with food banks and small-scale farmers. "For so many people, this was about so much more than a piece of paper," she said. "It was about empowerment. "
Jebreal praised a low-tech solution in an era when many 7are relying on high-tech innovation."What if I had 8 it as too simple?" Shukla asked. "Simple ideas are the ones that have the power to change things.., and they have the power to 9 " For Fresh Paper, simplicity meant accessibility, which was key to 10 the product reached anyone who could benefit from it. As the discussion drew to a close, Shukla reminded inventors everywhere that complicated isn't always better: "Don't ever discount your own simple idea. "
1.J)。详解 空格位于定冠词the和名词paper之间，推断此处应填入形容词。由上文可知Kavita Shukla在17岁时发明了保鲜纸，10年后，这一产品已被35个国家采用。因而此处应填入一个积极意义的形容词来修饰这种纸，故填入J)miracle“神奇的”。备选形容词中，average“平均的”和bacterial“细菌的”均不符合句意，故排除。
4.H)。详解 空格所在句为同位语，解释说明Rula Jebreal，故应填入表示职业的单数名词，意思上与expert相近。因此H)host“主持人”符合题意。备选名词中，innovators“改革者”为复数形式，故排除;access“途径”和guarantee“保证人”与上下文意思不符，故排除。
5.A)。详解 空格所在成分“living without to refrigeration”为后置定语，修饰主语people。空格位于介词without和to之间，应填入可以与to搭配的名词。备选名词中只有access与to搭配，故A)access“途径”为答案。其他均不符合句意，故排除。
6.M)。详解 空格所在句缺少谓语，主语是Siukla's company，因此应填入第三人称单数形式的动词，并且与company相关。因此M)targets这里意为“以……为目标 (人群)”符合题意，故为答案。备选动词中，triggers也是动词第三人称单数形式，但书符合句意，故排除;其他动词形式均不符，故排除。
10.F)。详解 空格位于动词短语was key to后，to在这里是介词，应填入动名词。备选动词中只有F)ensuring“确保”是动名词，故为答案。
