Conversation Two

W: Who are some of the people fighting to protect these trees?

M: (12) Well, they belong to the first green political party in Tasmania, and they obviously want to protect the forests a lot, and have big protests, tie themselves to trees, sit up in trees to protect the trees.

W: People actually still do that? Tie themselves to trees?

M: Oh, every day in Tasmania. It's a big issue.

W: Really? That's interesting. (13) I once heard of a girl who lived in a tree for a month because she wanted to stop people from taking down that tree. She lived up there and had people bring her supplies, but she never came down.

M: That happens in Tasmania as well. There are people today who are up in trees, maybe up to fifty who permanently live up in trees.

W: Wow!

M: I don't know how they do it.

W: That's kind of crazy." So, (14) from the companies' point of view, though they are playing devil's advocate here, they do provide jobs for all the people who are working to make trees into paper. What do you think they have to say about that?

M: Well, it's true, they do provide jobs. Some cities and small towns do rely on logging industry to provide jobs and support the shops in the place, but...

W: But what?

M: You know, (15) tourism is a very big industry in Tasmania, and maybe the logging industry takes away tourists, jobs as well, because it makes certain areas not useful for tourism anymore, not very pretty.

W: Yeah, you're right. If the whole forest is missing, I guess nobody would really want to go and look at anything.

M: Yeah.

12. What are the two speakers talking about?

13. Why did the girl live in a tree according to the woman?

14. What can be learned about the logging industry?

15. What can we know about the tourism industry in Tasmania?

参考答案:

【小题12】B

【小题13】D

【小题14】C

【小题15】A

习题解析:

【小题12】对话开头,女士就提到了 protect these trees,接下来又提到logging industry, forest is missing 等内容,由这些信息综合推断,两人所谈论的是环境保护中的林木保护,因此选项 B与之相符,为答案。

【小题13】对话中女士提到 I once heard of a girl who lived in a tree for a month because she wanted to stop people from taking down that tree.可见女士提到的女孩住在树上是为了阻止人们砍树,从而保护树木,故答案为 D。

【小题14】女士在对话中提到 they do provide jobs for all the people who are working to make trees into paper,即女士认为伐木业给人们带来了工作,由此可知选项 C与之相符,为答案。

【小题15】男士在对话中明确提到 tourism is a very big industry in Tasmania,选项 A是对该句的同义转述;另外,既然旅游业是重要的产业,必定会给当地人提供工作也会刺激经济增长,所以选项 B和 D不正确;选项 C原文未提及。
