  难易程度:★★★★

  题目题材:交通安全

  题目:

  The following appeared in a letter to the editor of the Balmer Island Gazette.

  "The population of Balmer Island increases to 100,000 during the summer months. To reduce the number of accidents involving mopeds and pedestrians(4), the town council of Balmer Island should limit the number of mopeds rented by each of the island's six moped and bicycle rental companies(5) from 50 per day to 30 per day(6) during the summer season(7). By limiting the number of rentals, the town council is sure to attain the 50 percent reduction in moped accidents(1,4) that was achieved last year in the neighboring island of Torseau(3), when Torseau's town council enforced similar limits on moped rentals(2)."

  提纲:

  (1)The author assumes that all other conditions in Balmer that might affect the rate of moped-pedestrian accidents will remain unchanged after the re­strictions are enacted.

  (2)The author fails to consider other possible explanations for the 50% decline in Torseau's moped accident rate last year.

  (3)Balmer Island and Torseau may not be comparable.

  (4)The author provides no evidence that the same restrictions that served to reduce the incidence of all "moped accidents" by 50% would also serve to reduce the incidence of accidents involving "mopeds and pedestrians" by 50%.

  (5)We do not know what percentage of mopeds in Balmer Island is rented by the six companies.

  (6)The author fails to provide accurate data about the current number of mopeds rented by the six companies per day.

  (7)The proposed regulation may not be necessary for the author’s purpose.

  注:题目中括号里的数字表明这句话体现的是提纲中第几号缺陷。

  无论是gre issue还是gre argument,考生都应该养成写提纲的习惯。这种提纲式的gre写作练习可以帮助考生锻炼写作的逻辑性,而gre写作高分最重要的得分依据就是作文的逻辑性要强。
