55.Sharing appeals to the sociable in that they can meet new people. .
定位：由题干中的sociable和meet new people 定位到文章F)段。
F)。详解：该段提到两种人：一种人喜欢社交， 正因如此，共享经济深深地吸引了他们;另一种人脾 气倔强，不信任他人，这种人是不会赞同共享经济的。题干中的appeals to，the sociable和meet new people分别是原文中charm，sociable souls和 meeting new people的同义转述，故答案为F)。
。详解：事实细节题。文章开篇指出了人们的食欲和食物摄取受到诸多因素的影响，包括人们的饮食环境和对面 前食物的认知，故答案为A)。B)“食物中所含的成分”，文章仅在第六段提到了奶昔中含有卡路里，包装上对卡路里 含量的标注会给人们造成心理暗示，这主要是用来论证对食物数量的认知会影响人们的饮食，而非从所含成分方面分 析对人们饮食造成的影响，可以排除;c)“我们饮食的时间”和D)“我们饮食的速度”，文中均未提及，可以排除。
详解：推理判断题。定位句指出，饭后)ttJ,时后，决定人们饥饿程度的不是他们已食用的食物量，而是他们吃 饭时面前所见到的食物量，也就是说，影响人们饥饿程度的是他们记忆中的食物量而不是胃里的食物量。由此可推 断，记忆对饮食造成影响，如果记忆中上顿饭吃了很多，那么不管是不是真的吃了很多，都不会感觉太饿，故答案为
排除;c)“它鼓励学生终生学习”，根据文章可知，学生只有终生学习，掌握不断学习的技能，才能适应未来社会的变 化。因此“鼓励学生终生学习”是实现理想教育的要求之一，故可以排除;D)“它确保学生的期望顺利实现”，文中没 有提及，故可以排除。
62.D)。定位 由题干中的problem，high school定位到文章第二段。
详解：事实细节题。作者在文章第二段论述了目前高中教育存在的问题，如提供给学生的就业准备不足，造成 了经济中不断扩大的技能差距。盲目鼓励学生读大学造成了目前世界上最高的大学辍学率，故答案为D)。A)“忽 裕那些不上大学的学生的需要”，文中没有提及，故可以排除;B)“只教授毕业之后能够立即用到的技能”，文中作 者指出高中提供给学生的就业准备不足，由此可推测，学校没有教授学生必备的工作技能，故可以排除;c)“很少注 意到学习E有困难的学生”，文中没有提及，故可以排除。
详解：推理判断题。第四段第二句中提到，在知识型经济中，职业角色迅速变化，很多大学生为之准备的职位 甚至可能还不存在。由此可推断，知识型经济的特征是职业的迅速变化，新的职位不断地被创造，有些读书时还不 存在的职位可能在毕业时出现，届时，在学校里学到的知识就远远不够了，因此人们需要持续学习来适应这些不断 被创造出的新职位，故答案为C)。A)“人们必须接受高等教育才有资格担任专业的技术职务”文中没有提及，故可 排除;B)“文科专业的学生找工作困难”，文章中提到大学生为之准备的职位甚至不存在，这句话强调的是职位迅速 变化这一现象，而不是学生找不到工作的问题，而且作者也没有涉及不同学科的学生，故可以排除;D)“大学发现很 难教授学生如何应付不断变化的经济”，根据文章可知，作者呼吁学校培养学生适应不断变化的未来的能力，因此 D)讲的是目前大学可能存在的问题，而不是知识型经济的特征，故可以排除。
64.c)。定位：由题干中的liberal arts college定位到文章第五段第一句。
详解：事实细节题。文章第五段提到在文理学院，这些培训比任何一门专业都重要。“这些培训”指上文提到 的“学会在口头和书面陈述中很好地表达观点，知道如何寻找信息并且知道如何做调查研究”，而这些技能培训是 为了使学生适应未来的变化，故答案为C)。A)“特殊领域里扎实的背景知识”，根据文章可知，文理学院应注重广 泛培养学生适应未来的基本技能，而不是仅仅针对特殊领域，故可以排除;B)“当前社会急需的实用技能”。文章强 调.知识型经济的特征是职业的迅速变化，因此只培养当前社会急需的实用技能，虽能取得暂时的成效，但是对于适 应未来的变化来说是远远不够的，故可以排除;D)“对高级学术研究有帮助的思维技熊”，文章指出我们需要继续重 视并广泛培养将会终生受益的思维技能，这种思维技能是基础技能，而不只针对高级学术研究，故可以排除。
详解：事实细节题。最后一段提到，“由于家长在大学阶段的参与，通向成年的漫长道路看起来好像更长了”， 这句话我们可以理解为家长在大学阶段过多参与孩子的教育会影响孩子的成长。文章最后指出“学会何时何地进 行干预将会有助于学生享受这些日益昂贵的教育所带来的成果。”也就是说，作者建议家长学会适当的参与，避免 过多的干预，这样才能使孩子更好地成长，使教育取得更大的成效，故答案为D)。A)“反思高等教育的价值”，这是 作者在文章首段对所有人的呼吁，而不是针对家长提出的建议，可以排除;B)“明智地投资孩子的教育”，文章中并 宋提及，故可以排除;C)“帮助孩子尽情发挥才智”，这个观点本身是正确的，但不是文章表述的内容，故可以排除。
