第147句:何凯文每日一句之教育服务削减

今天的句子:

The legislature was literally divided, with some lawmakers convening at the state capitol while others gathered in a town hundreds of miles away designated by the governor. As a result, not enough votes were cast to reach the three-quarter threshold needed to overturn vetoes by the governor that would spark deep cuts to education and other services.

(想想你会怎么出题?)

we can learn from the passage that ____

(A) the governor overturned the previous decision about education.

(B) the absence of lawmakers caused the invalidity of the vote.

(C) the legislature split over the nomination of governor

(D) three-quarter threshold denied the request by the majority of lawmakers

单词突破:

1. the state capitol 州议会大厦 如果就是Capitol 那就是 美国国会大厦

2. designate 指派

3. threshold 门槛,起点

4. overturn 推翻

5.veto 否决票

The British government used its veto to block the proposal.

英国政府行使其否决权阻止了这项提案。

Vote才是投票哦!

6.spark 引起

7.literally 实际上

第一句:

The legislature was literally divided, with some lawmakers convening at the state capitol while others gathered in a town hundreds of miles away designated by the governor.

主干:

The legislature was literally divided

其他成分:

1.with some lawmakers convening at the state capitol

2.while others gathered in a town hundreds of miles away designated by the governor.

参考译文:立法机构实际上是分裂的,一些议员在州议会开会,而另一些人聚集在州长指定的几百英里之外的一个城镇。

第二句:

As a result, not enough votes were cast to reach the three-quarter threshold needed to overturn vetoes by the governor that would spark deep cuts to education and other services.

主干:

not enough votes were cast

其他成分:

1.to reach the three-quarter threshold

2.needed to overturn vetoes

3.by the governor

4.that would spark deep cuts to education and other services.

参考译文:结果,没有投到足够多的选票,无法达到推翻州长否决票所需的四分之三的门槛,而这将引发教育和其他服务的大幅削减。

所以来看题吧:

we can learn from the passage that ____

我们可以从文章中了解到______

(A) the governor overturned the previous decision about education.

州长推翻了先前关于教育的决定。

这是正确选项。

来自最后部分:

vetoes by the governor

州长的否决票

这就说明州长曾经投过否决票

that would spark deep cuts to education and other services.

州长的否决票会导致教育和其他服务费用的大幅减少。

这就说明州长的否决票是关于教育和其他服务的!

于是我就设置了这个选项:

the governor overturned the previous decision about education.

州长推翻了先前关于教育的决定。

有点绕,但这就是考点。因为你确实没读懂最后的成分。

(B) the absence of lawmakers caused the invalidity of the vote.

立法者的缺席导致了投票的无效。

这是偷换!

首先不能说立法者缺席了。

也不能说投票无效,只是没有达到推翻州长否定票的门槛。

所以不对!

(C) the legislature split over the nomination of governor

文中说了立法机构分裂了,

但是没有提到州长提名。

更没有说就州长提名,立法机构分裂了。

(D) three-quarter threshold denied the request by the majority of lawmakers

3/4的门槛否定了大多数立法者的要求。

文中没提到“大多数立法者的要求”这个概念。所以就谈不上被门槛否定了。所以不对。
