  题目:

  Air-quality ____________ make pollution seem less bad than it is. Smoking a whole packet of cigarettes in a day once or twice a year would certainly make someone feel ill, but probably would not kill him. Smoking even one cigarette every day for ____________, though, might do so. That is the difference between ____________ and chronic ____________, and it is a difference most people understand. What they may not understand is that the same thing applies to air pollution. On a day-to-day basis, the ____________ most cities offer turn red only when pollution levels rise to a point where they will cause immediate ____________. That makes sense, for it lets people such as ____________ take appropriate action. But it might also lead the unwary to assume, if most days in the place he ____________ are green, that the air he is ____________ is basically safe. This may well not be the case.

  正确答案:

  indices,decades,acute,exposure,forecasts,discomfort,asthmatics,inhabits,breathing

  参考范文:

  Air-quality indices make pollution seem less bad than it is. Smoking a whole packet of cigarettes in a day once or twice a year would certainly make someone feel ill, but probably would not kill him. Smoking even one cigarette every day for decades, though, might do so. That is the difference between acute and chronic exposure, and it is a difference most people understand. What they may not understand is that the same thing applies to air pollution. On a day-to-day basis, the forecasts most cities offer turn red only when pollution levels rise to a point where they will cause immediate discomfort. That makes sense, for it lets people such as asthmatics take appropriate action. But it might also lead the unwary to assume, if most days in the place he inhabits are green, that the air he is breathing is basically safe. This may well not be the case.

  参考译文:

  空气质量指数粉饰了空气污染情况。一天抽完一整包烟,一年这么抽个一两天,必然会让人感觉不适,但也许还不足以致命。但如果每天抽一支,数十年如一日下去,就可能会让你丧命了。这就是急性暴露和慢性暴露的区别,大多数人都能理解这两者的不同之处。但是同样的情况放到空气污染上,他们可能就没弄明白了。大多数城市的每日天气预报里,只有当空气污染达到能让人当即感到不适的程度时,才会出现红色的警示。这些警示有一定的作用,可以供如哮喘病一类的患者因时制宜。但也会让没有戒备心的人误以为,既然当地绝大多数时候空气质量状况指标为绿色,那么他们呼吸的空气基本上就是安全无害的。但事实很可能并非如此。
