2022年考研英语二|外刊英语阅读

考研人数逐年增加,竞争之激烈使得我们不得不加急复习的日程。众所周知,阅读理解占据了考研英语二100分试卷的一半分值,而考研英语阅读文章大多来自英美国家的主流报刊杂志,所以如果能在日常就多多阅读这些文章,对以后读懂文章做对题目来说会大有裨益。

学习步骤如下:

1.不看汉语译文自己看一遍短文做理解

2.看汉语译文比对自己理解的意思与之出入

3.强化记忆重点单词(以记忆其汉语意思为主)


Given their combined market value of more than $5.5 trillion, rifling through such small deals -many of them much less prominent than Wunderlist and Sunrise -might seem beside the point. Between them, the five biggest tech companies have spent an average of only $3.4 billion a year on sub-$1 billion acquisitions over the past five years -a drop in the ocean compared with their massive financial reserves, and the more than $130 billion of venture capital that was invested in the US last year.

However, critics say the big companies use such deals to buy their most threatening potential competitors before their businesses have a chance to gain momentum, in some cases as part of a “buy and kill” tactic to simply close them down.

短文翻译

考虑到它们的总市值超过5.5万亿美元,审查这样的小交易--其中很多都没有 Wunderlist和 Sunise 那么引人注目--可能显得无关紧要。在过去五年中这五家最大的科技公司平均每年仅花费34亿美元用于10亿美元以下的收购,与其庞大的财务储备以及它们在美国1300亿美元的风险投资相比,这只是沧海一粟。

但是,批评家们说,大公司在初创企业有机会获得发展动力之前,利用此类交易购买最具威胁的潜在竞争对手,某些情况下这是“先买后杀”战略的一部分,简单粗暴地将其关闭。

真题练习

*一定要做题哦

35. For the five biggest tech companies, their small acquisitions have

A. raised few management challenges

B. brought little financial pressure

C. set an example for future deals

D. generated considerable profits

题目解析

35.【解析】根据题干的five biggest tech companies 定位到原文第六段第三行 the biggest tech company have spent an average of only $3.4 billion....a drop in the ocean 意思是沧海一粟,九牛一毛,故对大公司而言,这点收购小公司的钱构不成财政压力。故选B选项brought little financial pressure(几乎不构成财政压力)。
