In England, people don’t usually talk much. You can go on a bus, or a train, and everyone sits looking out of the window. Often they read. They read books and papers, but they don’t talk much. When you meet English people, they often talk about one thing---the weather. So when you meet somebody in England, you can say, “Nice weather for the time of year!”
“But it was a little cold yesterday.” Somebody may answer, “But it got a bit warmer later.” You can say.
Talk like this and the English will think, “How friendly you are!”

引用石頭爸的評述，第一道題若是出成單項那么難度最低，但是出成填空則難度最高。本題難度其實屬于中上。每一句的判斷依據其實只要看下一句即可，就基本上是看下句，填上句是比較好判斷的一種。重點是要看第二句判斷出這段對話時在商店等場所常用的買賣用語。所以第一句應該是what can I do for you?或是May I help you?接下來的四句話都是根據下文回答來寫句子即可。
3. 句子不符合英語習慣或不夠禮貌。比如說如果第一句說：What do you need?就很有可能被判為錯誤。
1. D 解析：本題從第一句就可得出答案
2. C 解析：其實四個選項都是對的，但是出現在閱讀完形中就應該根據文中的提示選最符合的選項。文中說到，英國人喜歡討論天氣，所以應該選C。
3. A 解析：本題從文章最后一句可以得出答案。
4. A 解析：文中第二段中只是給出一個討論天氣的例子。在cold的天氣里人們希望天氣warmer一點，問題中問的是人們通常希望怎么樣，應該選泛一點的選項，所以選better.
5. D 解析：本題從第一句可以得到答案。
