今天上海新航道 小编为大家带来的是关于sat阅读的真题,本题是一道标准选择题。

题目:

Conceptually, everybody is in favor of the right to vote. You will not hear anybody defend thenotion that the law can discriminate against persons because of their color, or their faith, ortheir ethnicity, when it comes to going to cast a ballot. That's huge progress, a normative shiftin how we think about our democracy. Everybody in theory is supposed to be included.

But part of the reason we're here today, part of the reason it's so important for us to focusattention on this right is because in practice, we've still got problems.

On the ground, there are still too many ways in which people are discouraged from voting.Some of the protections that had been enshrined in the Voting Rights Act itself have beenweakened as a consequence of court decisions and interpretations of the law. Statelegislatures have instituted procedures and practices that, although on the surface may appearneutral, have the effect of discouraging people from voting, may have a disproportionaleffect on certain kinds of folks voting.

And if, in fact, those practices, those trends, those tendencies are allowed to continueunanswered, then over time the hard-won battles of 50 years ago erode, and our democracyerodes. And that means that the decisions that are made in the corridors of power all acrossthis country begin to reflect the interests of the few, instead of the interests of the many.

So we've got serious business to attend to here. One order of business is for our Congress topass an updated version of the Voting Rights Act that would correct some of the problems thathave arisen.

Obama uses the word "business" twice in the last paragraph most likely in order to_____

 

A.indicate that practical steps should be taken.

B.identify the source of a persistent problem.

C.suggest a way to fix a broken system.

D.shift attention to another group of people.

解析:

Choice A is the best answer. In the last paragraph, Obama states that "we've got seriousbusiness to attend to" and that "one order of business is for our Congress to pass an updatedversion of the Voting Rights Act." By repeating the word "business," Obama is emphasizing thatthe problems with voting are practical, not theoretical, and need to be addressed right awaythrough practical steps.
