China’s rapidly growing population is the main threat facing large carnivores in the People’s Republic. Increasingly, policies aimed at limiting population growth have been (i)_____; nevertheless, the country’s vast size and the isolation of many of its regions mean that human populations in areas where large carnivores still occur (ii)_____. This human pressure has (iii)_____ the South China tiger.
A. modified D. could start to decline G. celebrated B. deemphasized E. can grow unchecked H. doomed C. implemented F. have stabilized I. bypassed Analysis 答案：CEH
分析：aimed at limiting population growth得知这些政策已经颁布了，第一空选C选项，第二空根据nevertheless，得知这些政策尽管实施了，但是效果不好，所以人口还是在快速增加，第二空选E选项，第三空human pressure一定是负面的动词，所以第三空选H选项。
Recent scholarship has questioned the (i)_____ of tropical forests around the world. Archaeologists have shown, for example, that the largest contiguous tract of what was thought to be virgin rain forest in the southern Amazon had been transformed into a cultural parkland before European contact, and many of the forest islands in West Africa’s savanna forest transition zone are (ii)_____ as well.
A. diversity D. isolated B. naturalness E. endangered C. sustainability F. anthropogenic Analysis 答案：BF
分析：后面的例子中virgin rain forest变成了cultural parkland，说明第一空质疑的就是virgin，所以第一空选B选项。第二空根据as well推出第二空要选前面的同义，所以第二空选F选项。
The notion of film producers as the ogres of the movie business has proved an (i)_____ one, but according to The Producers by Tim Adler, it is not always grounded in reality. Attacking what he calls the “auteur myth”—the idea of the director as the single purveyor of art in an industry otherwise peopled with (ii)_____—he places at the heart of his book an image of the producer, not the director, as the primary (iii)_____ force in the development and production of a movie.
A. accurate D. visionaries G. financial B. hypocritic E. profitmongers H. inertial C. enduring F. innocents I. creative Analysis 答案：CEI
分析：根据后文的not always grounded，得知第一空应该和grounded广义取同，但是不能选grounded直接同义词，所以不能选accurate，因为如果选了accurate的话这个题就有一个矛盾（被证明是准确的，但不总是合理的），括号里面的表达是GRE经常考察的矛盾重复，所以第一空选C选项，第二空根据attacking得知这种idea是存在于一个负面评价中，所以第二空选负评价词，正确答案选E选项，第三空根据作者攻击导演，支持制片人的特点，得知第三空是正评价词，所以正确答案选I选项。
Without seeming unworldly, William James appeared wholly removed from the _____ of society, the conventionality of academy.
分析：本题最简单的入手方法是看到空格和the conventionality of academy是同位语，所以选conventionality的同义词，所以正确答案选E选项。还可以把without和unworldly的双重否定换成肯定，就成了看上去世俗，但实际远离世俗，也能选出E选项。
Carmen’s affection for her sister, though not _____, was plainly too great to permit a painless departure.
分析：was plainly too great和though推出not+空格要取plainly too great的反义，所以空格要取plainly too great的同义，但不能是完全同义，所以正确答案选D选项。

A. renounce D. uncertainties B. merge E. correlations C. compartmentalize F. boundaries Analysis 答案：CF
分析：you can have one identity at work and another online对应第一空，所以正确答案选C选项，第二空是同义重复，对应第一空的同义词，正确答案选F选项。
Women in the mining towns of the American West were strictly stereotyped into neat categories of public and private, good and bad, but the 100 intrepid female prospectors in Zanjani’s book managed to (i)_____ those categories. In addition to providing documentation that demolishes the all-male version of prospecting, Zanjani uses the examples of her female loners to (ii)_____ some of the (iii)_____ generalizations about Euro-American women as uniformly nurturant and sociable pioneers.

A. immersed in D. verisimilitude B. disdainful of E. objectivity C. unmoved by F. radicalism Analysis 答案：AF
分析：第一空根据intuitive, billiard-ball causality得知我们是在这样的环境中长大的，所以第一空选A选项，第二空推理题目，我们用经典物理的优势才能接近量子物理，而且从alien一词也能看出量子物理的“新”的属性，所以第二空选F选项。

A. fusty D. recapitulate G. consistent B. anachronistic E. forswear H. plentiful C. dogmatic F. qualify I. biased Analysis 答案：CFH
分析：第一空根据后文的so much as a sentence得知这些历史学家害怕教条，第二个空是来体现他们如何避免教条，就是简单一句话就想限定范围，说话小心翼翼的。第三空是在反驳这种人的做法，有些事件的资料来源很丰富，都还是有不确定和矛盾，难道你一句话就能搞定吗？正确答案选CFH。
