何凯文每日一句:2020考研英语第32句

今天的句子:

The country is facing the ‘‘jaws of death”, Sir James Bevan said, at the point where water demand from the country’s rising population surpasses the falling supply resulting from climate change. However, this could be avoided with ambitious action to cut people’s water use by a third and leakage from water company pipes by 50%, he says, along with big new reservoirs and transfers of water across the country.

(你想想你会怎么出题?)

思考题:

思考题一:

Jaws of death refers to the water crisis facing the country.

(T or F )

思考题二:

2. surpass 超越

3. along with= and

4. reservoir 水库

5. transfer (名词)调配

6.face 这个词的用法还记得吧!

第一句:何凯文每日一句

参考译文:

詹姆斯·贝文爵士说,英国正面临”鬼门关”,即人口增长引发的水需求量超过了气候变化导致的下降的水供应量。

第二句:何凯文每日一句

结构:

A could be avoided with B, along with C and D

A 可以通过BC和D来避免;

B=ambitious action to cut people’s water use by a third and leakage from water company pipes by 50%

C=big new reservoirs

D=transfers of water across the country

参考译文:

但是,他说通过有力的行动可以避免这种情况,比如削减人们三分之一的用水量和减少50%的水力公司管道泄漏,还可以建设新的大型水库和水资源跨区域输送。

所以思考题一:

Jaws of death refers to the water crisis facing the country.

死亡之口是指该国面临的水危机。

正确!

Transfers of water across the country is an effective initiative to avoid the looming crisis.

在全国范围内调配水资源是避免可能的危机的有效举措。

正确!
