  2016年3月全国英语等级考试二级真题及答案(补全文章)

  根据短文内容,从短文后的选项中选出能填入空白处的最佳选项,并在答题卡上将该项涂黑。选项中有两项为多余选项。

  You might be surprised to know that bicycles have existed for about two hundred years, but no one is sure who first made this popular two-wheeled machine.

  31 The front wheel was much bigger than the back one, and also there weren't any pedals (踏板), Riders had to move themselves forward by pushing their feet against the ground.

  32 In 1879 an Englishman had the idea of connecting them to the back wheel with a chain.Gears(此轮), which made things much easier for those cycling uphill, first appeared in the 1890s.

  There are now about one billion bicycles in the world.33 They have to compete with cars on the streets of all the world' s cities, and the two forms of transport don' t always mix well.In London in 2005, for example, over 300 cyclists were either killed or seriously hurt in accidents.

  Because bicycles are much more environmentally friendly than cars, now many governments encourage people to ride rather than drive.34 The number of yearly journeys made by bicycle in London has increased 50% over the last five years.

  However, although one in three British people owns a bicycle, they still don't use them nearly as much as they could 35.

  It is hoped that more people will rely on bicycles to move around.The reasons are obvious--cycling helps to protect the environment, keep us fit, and it is often not only cheaper but also quicker than travelling by car in many cases.

  A.Pedals fmally arrived in the 1840s.

  B.Cycling is on the rise in the Unilted Kingdom.

  C.Bicycles are used for only 2 % of journeys in the UK.

  D.The first person who made a bicycle was an Englishman.

  E.The number of bicycles is twice more than that of cars.

  F.The early models didn' t look much like the bicycles of today.

  G.Cycling helps improve people's health.
