  阅读下列短文,回答题目.

  Most people have had a dog or wanted one as their companion at some time in their lives.If you are thinking of buying a dog,however,you should first decide what sort of companion you need and whether the dog is likely to be happy in your house.Specialists’(专家)advice is useful to help you choose the most suitable kind of dog.But in part the decision depends on common sense.

  Different dogs were developed to perform specific tasks.So,if you want a dog to protect you or your house,for example,you should choose the one that has the right size and characteristics.

  You must also be ready to devote(投入)a great deal of time to training the dog when it is young and give it the exercise it needs throughout its life,unless you live in the countryside and Can let it run freely.

  Dogs are demanding pets.Cats love the house and SO are satisfactory with their place where there is secure,but a dog is loyal to its master and consequently wants him to show proof of his affection.The first consideration in buying a dog is whether the dog is likely to be happy in the surroundings you can provide.The best time to buy a baby dog is when it is between 6 and 8 weeks old SO that it can transfer its love from its mother to its master.If baby dogs have not established a relationship with the human being until they are over three months old,their strong relationship will always be with dogs.They are likely to be too shy when they are brought out into the world to become good pets.

  1.Which of the following is NOT TRUE according to the passage?

  A.You can always get help from the specialists.

  B.It is common sense that is the most important when choosing a dog.

  C.You should decide what kind of dog you want.

  D.Size and characteristics of the dogs should be considered to0.

  参考答案:B

  B【解析】事实细节题。文章中提到了买狗的时候先要决定买什么样的,狗的大小、特征也要考虑,而且专家的建议也非常重要,所以A、C、D都是正确的。关于“comlnon sense”,是这样说的:“inpart the decision depends on common sense.”in part在句中意为“部分地/在某种程度上”,所以选择狗的时候,common sense并不是最重要的,而是部分因素。因此只有B不符合原文。

  2.What is mentioned as a consideration in buying a dog?

  A.The color of the dog.

  B.The price of the dog.

  C.Whether the dog will fit the environment.

  D.Wtiether the dog will get along with the other pets in the house.

  参考答案:C

  参考解析:C【解析】事实细节题。根据文章的内容,买狗的时候并没有提到要考虑狗的颜色、狗的价格,以及狗能否和家中的其他宠物很好地相处。但是提到了要考虑狗能否适应周围的环境。“whether thedog is likely to be happy in the surroundings you can provide.”

  3.Why is it advised to buy a baby dog under three months old?

  A.It’s easier to buy a baby dog under three months old.

  B.They are less likely to be shy with human beings.

  C.They are less likely to run away.

  D.It’s easier for them to form a relationship with their masters.

  参考答案:D

  参考解析:D【解析】推理判断题。从文章的最后,If baby dogs have not estab—lished a relationship with the human being until they are over threemonths old,their strong relationship will always be with dogs.可知。要买三个月以下的狗,是因为它容易和它的主人建立感情。

  参考译文

  很多人在自己的生活中都会有或者想有一只狗来作为自己的生活小伙伴。然而,当你想买狗的时候,你需要一方面考虑你自己需要什么样的伙伴,另一方面要考虑你自己的生活环境是否适合养狗。在你选择要买什么狗的问题上,最好听一听专家的意见。当然,做决定部分还取决于基本常识。

  不同的狗适合于执行不同的任务。因此如果你想买一只狗看家的话,你就需要考虑狗的大小和性格。除非你住在乡村,可以让它自由奔跑;否则,你就要在它年轻时投入大量的时间来训练它,并自始至终给予它所需要的锻炼。

  狗是需要情感交流的动物,它不像猫一样,只需要有一个安乐窝就心满意足了,狗对主人很忠诚,但它也需要主人对它关爱有加。买狗要优先考虑它是否快乐地生活于你所提供的环境。另外,买狗的最佳时间是在狗出生后6到8周,这样的话,小狗才会把对母狗的感情转移到主人身上。如果小狗在三个月内还没有和人建立起情感的话,那么它就只会和狗有感情。它们太易害羞,这种狗往往不适合当做宠物带出门去。
