  Cities can be frightened places. The majority of the population live in noisy massive tower blocks. __1__

  The sense of belonging to a community tends to appear when you live thirty floors up in a skyscraper. __2__

  Strange enough, whereas in the past the inhabitants of one street all knew each other, __3__

  nowadays people on the same floor in tower blocks even say hello to each other. __4__

  Country life, on the other hand, differs from this kind of isolated existence in that a sense of community generally keep the inhabitants of a small village together. __5__

  People have the advantage of knowing that there is always someone to turn to when they need help.

  So country life has disadvantages too. For example, shopping becomes a major problem and __6__for anything slightly out of the ordinary you have to go for an expedition to the nearest large town. __7__

  The country has the advantage of peaceful and quiet, but suffers from the is advantages of being cut off. __8__

  The city has noise and population which do harm to human health. But one of their main advantages is that __9__ you are at the centre of things and that life doesn’t come to an end even at ten at night. Some people have found a compromise be-tween the two: they expressed their preference for the quiet life by leaving for the city and moving to the __10__country within commuting distance of the large city.

  答案:

  1.把frightened改为frightening。frightened是“受到惊吓的”,表明心理状态,而frightening表示“令人害怕的”,表示事物性质。

  2.把appear改为disappear。“当你住在摩天大厦的三十层里”,可以推测这里要表达的是归属感的消失,而不是产生归属感。

  3.把Strange改为Strangely。Strangely enough,是固定短语,经常用作插入语,意思是“说也奇怪,最奇怪的是”。

  4.在say前面加上don’t。此处说的是,现在住在同一层楼的人甚至见面都不打招呼。

  5.把keep改为keeps。in that 引导的句子主语应该是 a sense,故谓语应为单数。本句的意思是,农村生活与这种隔绝孤立的生活不同,因为一种归属感把小村里的居民联系在一起。

  6.把so 改为but/yet。上文提到了乡村生活的好处,下文是转折,要用but或者yet。

  7.把for改为on。“去远征”应该用go on a expedition,而go for 的意思是“去找,努力获取,拥护”。

  8.把peaceful改为peace。of 后面不应该用形容词,所以应该改为peace。这里需要注意的是quiet既是名词又是形容词,不要被迷惑。

  9.把their改为its。此处的代词应该指代上文的 the city。

  10.删除leaving后面的for,或者把for改为from。leave表示“离开某地”,而leave for表示“离开某地去另外一个地方”,for后面接的是目的地。本句说的是离开城市,搬到乡村,所以for是多余的。
