  I often dreamed about Pisa when I was a boy. I read about the famous building called the Leaning Tower of Pisa. But when I read the word Pisa, I was thinking of pizza .I thought this tower was a place to buy pizza. It must be the best place to buy pizza in the world, I thought.
  Many years later I finally saw the Leaning Tower. I knew then that it was Pisa and no pizza. But there was still something special about it for me .The tower got its name because it really did lean to one side. Some people want to try to fix it. They are afraid it may fall over and they don’t like it leans over the city.
  I do not think it’s a good idea to try to fix it. The tower probably will not fall down. It is 600 years old. Why should anything happen to it now? And, if you ask me, I like what it looks like. To me it is a very human kind of leaning. Nothing is perfect. It seems to say.
  And who cares? Why do people want things to be perfect? Imperfect things may be more interesting. Let’s take the tower in Pisa. Why is it so famous? There are many other older, more beautiful towers in Italy. But Pisa tower is the most famous. People come from all over the world to see it.

  【答案与解析】

  这是关于比萨斜塔的一篇杂感。作者由儿时对比萨斜塔的曲解谈起,说到了自己对人们想要重新修正斜塔的看法。最后作者由此阐发感想:没有什么东西是十全十美的。人们不应当事事追求完美。如比萨斜塔一样,正因为它的不完美,才吸引了世界上众多人的目光。
  1. C 由作者所叙述的内容,可知该塔之所以被叫做斜塔是因为它是倾斜的。
  2. D 这层意思是作者对比萨斜塔的误解,答案在“But when I read the word Pisa, I was thinking of pizza”一句中。
  3. C 本题属表层理解题。“The tower probably will not fall down, it is 600 years old.”是答案的出处。
  4. B 答案即在“And, if you ask me, I like what it looks like.”中。
  5. D 根据“Imperfect things may be more interesting.”及作者所流露出的对比萨斜塔的感情可以看出他认为缺憾也是一种美。
