今天的句子:

More than 50 North American oil and gas companies with debts totaling more than $50 billion have sought bankruptcy protection this year. Oil companies are facing daunting uncertainties, particularly as concerns over climate change mount and governments impose tougher regulations to reduce greenhouse gas emissions caused by the burning of fossil fuels. Small companies fear a crackdown on methane leaks and tightening regulations, especially if former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. becomes president and Democrats take control of the Senate.

思考题:

A. may oppose reducing greenhouse emission.

句子解析:

第一句:

More than 50 North American oil and gas companies with debts totaling more than $50 billion have sought bankruptcy protectionthis year.

参考译文:今年,50多家债务总额超过500亿美元的北美石油和天然气公司已寻求破产保护。

第二句:

Oil companies are facing daunting uncertainties, particularly as concerns over climate change mount and governments impose tougher regulations to reduce greenhouse gas emissions caused by the burning of fossil fuels.

参考译文:石油公司面临着巨大的不确定性,尤其是对气候变化的担忧加剧,以及政府颁布更严格的法规以减少由化石燃料燃烧引起的温室气体排放。

第三句:

Small companies fear a crackdown on methane leaks and tightening regulations, especially if former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. becomes president and Democrats take control of the Senate.

参考译文:小公司担心甲烷泄漏进一步被严控,以及法规收紧,如果前副总统约瑟夫·拜登就任总统和民主党人控制参议院,尤其如此。

思考题解析:

It can be inferred from the text that Joseph Biden ____

从文中可以推断,约瑟夫·拜登

A. may oppose reducing greenhouse emission.

A.反对减少温室气体排放。

B. may support the bankruptcy of small company.

B.可能支持小公司的破产。

C. may favor the tough regulation on emission

C.可能会支持对排放的严格监管

D. may hold sway over the Senate House.

D.可以控制参议院的控制权。

没读懂文章的时候,快速解题的思路:

文章重点讲的就是环境保护的问题。

所以重点就是A和C,

而且A和C是相反选项

A是反对环保

C是支持环保

如果了解背景的同学应该知道拜登是民主党人,是支持环保的,那直接选C(正确),秒 杀!

如果不了解背景就看最后一句:

小公司担心甲烷泄漏进一步被严控,以及法规收紧,如果前副总统约瑟夫·拜登就任总统和民主党人控制参议院,尤其如此。

再次确认答案为C!

B和D两个选项先不说对不对,和主题都不相关,成为正确答案的可能性就不大了。

而且B和D也确实不对

B. may support the bankruptcy of small company.

没有谈到拜登会支持小公司的破产

D. may hold sway over the Senate House.

D.可以控制参议院的控制权。

原文没有说过他能控制参议院。

原文只说了民主党可能会控制参议院。

文章来源背景和来源:

Oil industry turns to mergers and acquisitions in scramble to survive

石油行业为求生存纷纷转向并购

来源:

https://www.nytimes.com/2020/10/19/business/energy-environment/conocophillips-concho-oil-merger.html

背景:曾经显赫一时的石油产业目前正挣扎求生,大部分企业都减少了钻井活动,大幅裁员和结转资产。甚至有一些企业正寻求并购目标,以期减少成本。康菲石油宣布将以97亿美元收购康乔资源,这笔交易将是今年3月石油价格暴跌之后石油行业标的最 大的交易。石油行业的兴衰基本上与石油和天然气的价格直接绑定。极少专家认为,该行业能在2022年之前全面复苏。战略能源与经济研究机构的迈克尔•林奇表示,“目前红字的坏账远多于黑金。”
