    “Any apples today?” Effie asked cheerfully at my window. I followed her to her truck and bought a kilo. On credit,of course. 41____ "Pay me whenever you like," said Effie, climbing back into her truck.
    All pretense of payment was dropped when our funds, food and fuel decreased to alarming lows. Effie came often, always bringing some gift: a jar of peaches or some firewood. There were other generosities. Our baby was not doing well, so Effie financed my wife's trip to New York for consultation with a specialist.
    42____ Her income, derived from investments she had made while running an interior decorating shop, had never exceeded $ 200 a month, which she supplemented by selling her apples. But she always managed to help someone poorer.
    Years passed before I was able to return the money Effie had given me from time to time. She was. ill now and had aged rapidly in the last year. "Here, darling," I said, “is what I owe you.””Don' t give it to me all at once,” she said. "43____" I think she believed there was magic in the slow discharge of a love debt.
    The simple fact is that I never repaid the whole amount to Effie, for she died a few weeks later. 44____ But a curious thing began to happen.
    Whenever I saw a fellow human in financial trouble, I was moved to help him. I can't afford to do this always, but in the ten years since Effie's death, I have indirectly repaid my debt to her.
    The oddest part of the whole affair is that people whom I help often help others later on. 45____  So the account can never be marked closed, for Effie's love will go on in hearts that have never known her.


A.At that time, it seemed that my debt would forever go unsettled.
B.Give your help to those in greater need.
C.Effie was not a rich woman.
D.Effie worked diligently all her life.
E.Cash was the one thing in the world I lacked just then.
F.By now, the few dollars Effie gave me have been multiplied many times.
G.Give it back as I gave it to you--a little at a time.
1.[选词填空]____
    • 解题思路:第三段说明埃菲的收入来源。她的收入来源于她投资的一家室内装饰店,一个月也不会超过200美金,因此她靠卖苹果来补给。因此此处应填总结性语句“Effie was not a rich woman.”故选C。
    2.[选词填空]____
      • 解题思路:根据前文“Don’t give it to me all at once,”判断,埃菲不让作者一次性还清,应该是一次还一点“Give it back as I gave it to you- a little at a time.”符合题意,故选G。
      3.[选词填空]____
        • 解题思路:前文提到“On credit”赊账,说明作者没有钱,E项“CashWas the one thing in the world I lacked just then.”意为“金钱是我当时唯一缺少的东西”,可承接前后文,故选E。
        4.[选词填空]____
          • 解题思路:根据前文,作者去帮助经济困难的人当作间接还埃菲的债,但是被帮助过的人同样去帮助别人,A项“作者的债务似乎永远也解决不完”能承接上下文,故选A。
          5.[选词填空]

          ____

            • 解题思路:根据前一句“The simple fact is that I never repaid the whole amount to Effie,for she died a few weeks later.”可知,作者没还清埃菲的钱,埃菲就已经过世了。综观各选项,只有F项“当年埃菲给作者的钱现在已经翻了许多倍”能承接上下文,故选F。
            • 参考答案:C,G,E,A,F
