2021考研英语(一)万人冲刺大背书

今天的题目:

No company likes to be told it is contributing to the moral decline of a nation. “Is this what you intended to accomplish with your careers?” Senator Robert Dole asked Time Warner executives last week. “You have sold your souls, but must you corrupt our nation and threaten our children as well?” At Time Warner, however, such questions are simply the latest manifestation of the soul-searching that has involved the company ever since the company was born in 1990. It’s a self-examination that has, at various times, involved issues of responsibility, creative freedom and the corporate bottom line.

思考题:

1.Senator Robert Dole criticized Time Warner for ________.

[A] its raising of the corporate stock price

[B] its self-examination of soul

[C] its neglect of social responsibility

[D] its emphasis on creative freedom

今天题目的解析:

1.No company likes to be told it is contributing to the moral decline of a nation.

参考译文:没有一家公司乐意听到别人说自己引起了社会的道德败坏。

2. “Is this what you intended to accomplish with your careers?” Senator Robert Dole asked Time Warner executives last week.

参考译文:参议员罗伯特.多尔上星期质问时代华纳公司高级人员时说:难道这就是你们要成就的事业吗?

3. “You have sold your souls, but must you corrupt our nation and threaten our children as well?”

参考译文:你们已经出卖了自己的灵魂,难道你们还非要腐化我们的国家,威胁我们的孩子吗?

4. At Time Warner, however, such questions are simply the latest manifestation of the soul-searching that has involved the company ever since the company was born in 1990.

参考译文:不过,对于华纳公司而言,这样的质问仅仅体现了(manifestation名词转译动词)自1990年成立以来,其一直在做的自我反思。

5. It’s a self-examination that has, at various times, involved issues of responsibility, creative freedom and the corporate bottom line.

参考译文:这种自我反省在不同时期涉及到责任、创作自由和公司底线等问题。

1.Senator Robert Dole criticized Time Warner for ________.

定位到第三句:

“You have sold your souls, but must you corrupt our nation and threaten our children as well?”

参考译文:你们已经出卖了自己的灵魂,难道你们还非要腐化我们的国家,威胁我们的孩子吗?

再联系第一句:没有一家公司乐意听到别人说自己引起了社会的道德败坏。也就是说时代华纳公司被人指责为:引起了社会的道德败坏

“你们已经出卖了自己的灵魂,难道你们还非要腐化我们的国家,威胁我们的孩子吗?”

=引起了社会的道德败坏=忽略了社会责任 C是正确答案!

这个行文逻辑非常经典,同意替换的方式也值得关注!词本无意!

其他选项都是NG

[A] its raising of the corporate stock price

提升了公司股价

[B] its self-examination of soul

对灵魂的自我检查

[C] its neglect of social responsibility

忽略了社会责任

[D] its emphasis on creative freedom

强调创作自由
