Passage 1

Life really should be one long journey of joy for children born with a world of wealth at their feet.

Internationally famous child doctor Robert Coles is the world’s top expert on the influence of money on children. He has written a well-known book on the subject, “The Privileged Ones”, and his research shows that too much money in the family can cause as many problems as too little. “Obviously there are certain advantages to being rich,” says the 53-year-old doctor, “such as better health, education and future work prospects. But the most important is the quality of family life. Money can’t buy love.”

It can buy a lot of other things, however, and that’s where the trouble starts. Rich kids have so much to choose from that they often become confused. Over-indulgence by their parents can make them spoilt. They tend to travel more than other children, from home to home and country to country, which causes feelings of restlessness.

“But privileged children do have a better sense of their positions in the world,” adds Mr. Coles, “and they are more self-assured.” The rich children inherit the property from their parents and enjoy a high income. So money will never be one of their problems. “However they will have a sense of isolation”, warns Dr Coles, “and they could suffer from the hardship of not being able to deal with the everyday world because they will never really be given the chance. Everything they have achieved is because of an accident of birth. There can be no tremendous inner satisfaction about that.”

Today’s wealthy parents perhaps realize their riches can be more of a heavy load than a happiness to their children. So the first thing for them to consider is to ensure that their families are as rich in love as they are in money.

1. In his book “The Privileged Ones,” Dr Coles implies that _______.

   A. there are fewer problems in the rich family than the poor family

   B. rich children live a life of separation from the world

   C. rich children usually enjoy more love than poor children

   D. the quality of rich children’s family life may not be high

2. In the doctor’s view, _______.

   A. there are both advantages and disadvantages to being rich

   B. traveling a lot will be beneficial to children

   C. rich children usually have little confidence in themselves

   D. rich kids are often short of money because of their life of luxury

3. Which of the following statements is TRUE according to the passage?

A. Rich children usually lead a life of happiness.

B. Rich children have earned what they have.

C. Rich children tend to feel isolated.

D. Rich children are hardly given too many material things.

4. According to the author of the passage, _______.

A. life is really a long journey of joy for rich children

B. the rich children feel greatly satisfied with the property they inherit from their parents

C. it is most important for wealth parents to make sure that their families are rich in love as well as in money

D. today all the wealthy parents are sure of the problems their money can bring

5. It seems that the author of the passage _______ what Dr. Coles says in the book “The Privileged Ones”.

A. knows little about                                  B. is doubtful about

      C. is opposed to                        D. agrees with

 

答案与解析:

1. D【解析】从第二段“他的研究显示,家里太有钱带来的问题与太缺钱带来的问题一样多。很明显,富有会带来一定的优势,…… 但是重要的是家庭生活的质量,钱买不来爱。”可推断出“富裕家庭孩子的家庭生活质量不一定就高”,D选项符合题意。

2. A【解析】第二、三段作者说明了富裕家庭带给孩子的一些不足之处, 第四段作者列举了一些advantagesdisadvantages to being rich,可见A选项“有钱既有优势也有不足之处”符合文中观点。BCD选项的信息与原文不一致。

3. C【解析】从第四段“However, they will have a sense of isolation.”可以判断C正确。

4. C【解析】从文章最后一段中“So the first thing … in money.”这一结论句可得出C“对于富有的父母,确定家庭的爱和财富一样富有是非常重要的”符合原文结论。

 

5. D【解析】 作者在行文的最后得出结论:保证家人在爱和财富上同样富有是最重要的。Dr. Coles在《特权阶层》一书中的观点是:财富可以给人在很多方面带来优势,但最重要的是家庭生活质量。金钱买不来爱。因此,作者和Dr. Coles的观点一致。
