1. A。guests 意为“客人”,与前面的the host(男主人)和hostess(女主人)相对应。
2. B。此句用so表示重复前面句子的意思,但两句的主语不同。句意为:食物可能变味,主人的兴致(spirits)也可能变味。
3. C。由上文提到不能迟到,此句表示:如果不得不迟到的话,就得先打电话告诉他们开始。
4. A。without 在此表示:没有你在场。
5. B。朋友聚餐一般都约定了时间。如果去早了,主人还没有作好准备。
6. D。由上文提到聚餐既不能迟到,也不能早到,此句可断定:准时到达是重要的。
7. B。由四个动词的意义结合上下文可知:只有选 invites 才正确。
8. D。start 意为“出发”,指在主人约定的到达和离开的时间之间任何时间出发都可以。
9. B。由下文提到的flowers,wine,a box of candy等可知:给主人送小(small)礼物较好。
10. D。由or可知:如果送花钱太多的礼物,主人只会感觉不安。
11. A。前面提到送小礼物好,送花钱太多的礼物,主人只会感觉不安,那么用钱作礼物就会使主人感到更加不安,所以千万别送钱。
12. C。由下文可知:在作介绍时,要注意名字的顺序(order)(www.nmet168.com)。
13. A。后面是对前面的话进行进一步地解释,故选words ,in other words意为“换句话说”。
14. B。first name或given name 指(欧美人的)名字。family name意为“姓”。
15. C。上文谈到的名字,所以此句意为:不仅要了解和记住名字(names),而且在谈话时还要经常提到这些名字。
16. A。在下句提到,老年人想要你称呼他们的头衔(title)和姓(family name),那么在一般朋友之间则可直呼其名(given name)。
17. C。/ 18. A。/ 19. A。在西方一些国家,未婚女子的姓用女人出生时的姓即woman’s family name,结婚(marries),就得将自己的family name改为她丈夫(husband)的姓。
20. C。前面提到女人结婚后,其姓改为她丈夫的。此句提到现在情况正在变化:女人结婚后仍然保持(keep)少女时的姓(maiden name)。选keep切合句意,其他动词均不符。
