One windy spring day，I observed young people having fun flying their kites.Multicolored creations，various shapes and sizes __1__ the skies like beautiful birds darting and dancing.As the strong wind blew against the kites，a __2__ kept them in check.
Instead of blowing away with the wind，they arose against it to achieve great __3__.They shook and pulled，but the restraining string and the cumbersome tail kept them in tow，facing __4__ and against the wind.__5__ the kites struggled and __6__ against the string，they seemed to be saying，“Let me go!Let me go!I want to be __7__!”They soared __8__ even as they fought the control of the string.__9__，one of the kites __10__ in breaking loose from it.“Free at last，”it seemed to say，“Free to fly with the wind.”
Yet freedom from restraint simply put it at the __11__ of the unsympathetic wind.It dropped ungracefully to the ground and landed __12__ a mass of weeds.“Free at last”，free to __13__ powerless，and __14__ helpless along the ground，and to lodge lifeless against the first obstruction.
__15__ like kites we sometimes are!The Heaven gives us adversity ，__16__ and rules to follow __17__ we can gain strength.Restraint is a necessary opponent to the winds of opposition.We can never __18__ high enough to achieve our goals if we lose our necessary __19__ or the rules.

2.B 由下文“the restraining string”与“the kites struggled and __6__ against the string”，可知，此处答案选B，string“线，细绳”。
7.C 既然是“Let me go!”那样此处应该是“我想获得自由”，因此答案选C。
10.B 由下文“Free at last”可判断，此处指一只风筝成功地挣脱了细绳，因此答案选B。
11.A 由语境可知，挣脱了细绳，获得了自由的风筝，完全处于无情的风的摆布下。因此答案选A，at the mercy of“任由……摆布”。at the risk of“冒……危险”;at the sight of“一看见……”;at the expense of“以……为代价”，均不符合语境。
15.B 此处作者有感而发：有时大家多么像风筝啊!所以答案选B，how much表示程度。
17.A which引导定语从句，其先行词是“adversity，__16__ and rules”，介词from表示出处。
18.B 依据语境，这里说的是像风筝一样往高处飞，因此答案B。下文“rise to great heights”也有暗示。

The least successful tourist on record is Mr.Nicholas Scotti who lived in San Francisco in the United States.In 1977 he decided to visit Rome in Italy because that was where his family originally came from.
He went to the airport in San Francisco and got on a plane which was going to Italy.However，because the plane had to make a fuel sTOP，it landed at Kennedy Airport in New York.Thinking that he had arrived，Mr.Scotti got off and spent two days in New York，believing that he was in Rome.
While he was wandering around the city，the great traveler could not help noticing that many of Rome's famous and ancient landmarks had disappeared.This must be due to modernization，he thought to himself.
Mr.Scotti，who spoke very little English，asked a policeman the way to the bus station.Naturally he spoke to the policeman in Italian.As chance would have it，the policeman replied in Italian because he，too，was an Italian immigrant who had only arrived in America a few years earlier.
Mr.Scotti then saw around New York for twelve hours in a bus.Eventually the bus driver handed him over to another policeman.Unfortunately，this policeman did not speak Italian and Mr.Scotti got very annoyed and wanted to know why an Italian policeman could not speak Italian.
Finally，even when the policeman told him that he was not in Italy but was in New York，Mr.Scotti refused to believe him.“I can't be in New York，” he said.“I must be in Rome.Look at the way people drive here.only Italians can drive like that!”
1.The reason why Mr.Scotti is the least successful tourist is that ________.
A.he lacked common sense
B.he had very bad luck
C.he was too clever to believe others
D.Italians are usually foolish
2.What happened to Scotti's plane in New York?
A.It broke down.
B.It needed repairing.
C.It needed oil filling.
D.It sTOPped to pick up more passengers.
答案与分析：C 细则理解题。从第二段中的“because the plane had to make a fuel sTOP”可知答案。
3.Mr.Scotti couldn't see Rome's famous landmarks，______.
A.which he thought wonderful
B.which made him very angry
C.which he considered reasonable
D.so he realized that he was not in Rome
答案与分析：C 推理判断题。从第三段可知Mr.Scotti 看不到罗马且古老的标志，以为是现代化让罗马发生了变化，他觉得这合乎情理;但事实上他根本不是在罗马，而是在纽约。
