Up to one's neck就是某人手头要做的事实在太多,多得没法应付。这句没听懂也不影响做题，因为后面男人又问“how come you’ve been so busy?” (你最近怎么会这么忙?)
“Oh, no, it must have slipped my mind.”slip one’s mind指的是：忘记了。男人忘记了自己的诺言。
本题可能的干扰内容是对as a rule的理解，as a rule 相当于in general: 通常来说。

答案：(A) How being an identical twin influences one’s identify.

17. What do we learn about the twin Jims?
答案：(B) They grew up in different surroundings.
【点评】：细节题。关键词即是Jim 这个名字。关于两个Jim的情况是：他们一直生长在不同家庭，直到39岁才见面。‘… grew up in different families and did not meet for 39 years.’ 他们都结过两次婚，第二次婚姻中，妻子都叫贝蒂。‘Both men were married twice… and their second wives were both named Betty.’ 而他们的第一个孩子都是儿子 ‘Both twins named their first sons James Allen.’

20. What does the passage tell us about the most popular tent sold in Britain?
答案：(B) It consists of an inner and an outer tent
【点评】：细节题。关键主抓“the most popular tent ”。通过这个关键表述，我们可以知道最受欢迎的帐篷有这样的特色：“The most popular tent… is the frame tent with 2 bedrooms and sleeping accommodation for 4 people. There is usually an outer tent… and a lighter inner tent or tents”。
21. What does the speaker suggest buying if you plan to stay camping in one place for more than a few days?
答案：(C) A kitchen extension
【点评】：细节题。关键抓住“camping in one place;for more than a few days”。听力文章最后讲到“You can buy a kitchen extension for many tents… plan to stay camping in one place for more than a few days.” 基本就是原文重现。如果在同一地点要旅行多日，则需要一个额外的厨房部分。

When talking about the course which impresses me the most, I will certainly choose Basic Chemical Experiment. As a student of science, I am always fascinated with the magic in test tubes, and from this course I gained more than pure knowledge.
To begin with, this course provides us opportunities to put theories into practices. The experiments helped us testify and better understand what we have learned in books. Besides, by designing experimental procedures of own, we became more flexible and innovative.
Moreover, I also developed other skills that required outside labs through this course. For example, to be focused and careful when proceeding a task, to be patient and calm when facing failures, and to communicate properly when you need someone else to cooperate. These can be very valuable assets to your life.
Basic Chemical Experiment influenced me not only on academic field but also on daily affairs, therefore it’s the most impressing course to me.
University is a place that provides a number of interesting activities to enrich our life on campus. In the two years, I have attended a couple of activities such as football club and reading society. The most benefited one popping into my mind is the sports meeting last month.
First of all, sports meeting offers a great opportunity to draw students’ attention from busy studies to the sports field. As students, most of our time is killed in the classroom and library. However, doing sports could be seen as a relaxing ingredient in tedious study life.
Secondly, as a member of football club, I attended the football game that day. I enjoyed the feeling of being united. During the game, we encouraged each other when we felt frustrated; we cheered for each other when we scored a goal. All these taught me to be more and more team-oriented.
Lastly, doing sports benefits to our physical health. Increasingly sedentary lifestyle causes laziness and possibility of obesity. Therefore, this sports meeting on campus mobilized our students to enjoy the fun of sports.
This is the campus activity that has benefited not only me but also most of the students.
Rose is my roommate, classmate and my best friend in my college. She has a round face and a little plump. One can always find a nice smile on her face, which reflects her amiable and pleasant character. Our friendship attributes to her great influence on me.
In terms of study, she is good at English, while English is not my cup of tea. When I am confused about teacher’s explanation of texts, she always interprets them to me in an explicit way. I really appreciate her help. Besides, she also imparts me a few language learning tips and recommendations which arouse my learning interest.
In addition, in the leisure time, she helps me a lot as well. Because I am not the local student and my hometown is far away from here, sometimes I feel homesick. However, I always have Rose on my side. Her accompany gives me great comfort.
I feel so lucky that I could have such a good friend, who teaches me and help me in my study and leisure life, so she is the classmate that has influenced me most in college.

本次选词填空是一篇关于日常生活化学污染的文章。文章内容虽然略带科普性，但实际上与大家的日常生活息息相关，如果用生活常识和中文的背景知识来答题也能帮助不少。同时，从词汇考查角度看，仍然与往年相同，副词考查最少，名词和动词重点考查，所以与沪江英语教研君在平时向大家提倡的一样，建议对选项和目标词进行词性的标注和预判，进而再根据语法规则及上下文逻辑确定最终答案。另外，本次考题再次证明了难词往往不是答案，例如D. demonstrated，G. habitually都并未出现在答案中。
本次长篇阅读匹配题是关于二战后生育高峰的人在美国大萧条时期遭遇下岗、被迫提前退休等困窘状况的原因、影响等。文章题材与前两年阅读常考话题一致，属于社会问题型。考查题目中仍然以80%为细节题，仅有46题和53题为主旨概括题，其他均为细节题。而细节题的好处是题干中的定位词和原文几乎完全一致，如：47题laid off在I段第一句一致;50题Age discrimination在K段特殊标点符号，引号中为“Discrimination by age，…”。因此，从细节题居多，题干关键词基本能与文章一一对应来看，本篇难度与往年持平。

More and more Chinese young people are becoming interested in travelling, which is a new trend in recent years. The increasing number of young tourists can be attributed to the rapid rise of their income and curiosity for exploring the outside world. With more travel, young people spend less time in big cities and famous sights. Instead, they are attracted to more remote places. Some people even choose a long backpacking trip. A recent survey shows that many young people want to experience a different culture, enrich their knowledge and broaden their horizons through travelling.

The Chinese Internet Community experienced the fastest development. By 2010, there had been 420 million netizens in China and this number is still rising rapidly.
