In England, people don’t usually talk much. You can go on a bus, or a train, and everyone sits looking out of the window. Often they read. They read books and papers, but they don’t talk much. When you meet English people, they often talk about one thing---the weather. So when you meet somebody in England, you can say, “Nice weather for the time of year!”
“But it was a little cold yesterday.” Somebody may answer, “But it got a bit warmer later.” You can say.
Talk like this and the English will think, “How friendly you are!”

引用石头爸的评述，第一道题若是出成单项那么难度最低，但是出成填空则难度最高。本题难度其实属于中上。每一句的判断依据其实只要看下一句即可，就基本上是看下句，填上句是比较好判断的一种。重点是要看第二句判断出这段对话时在商店等场所常用的买卖用语。所以第一句应该是what can I do for you?或是May I help you?接下来的四句话都是根据下文回答来写句子即可。
3. 句子不符合英语习惯或不够礼貌。比如说如果第一句说：What do you need?就很有可能被判为错误。
1. D 解析：本题从第一句就可得出答案
2. C 解析：其实四个选项都是对的，但是出现在阅读完形中就应该根据文中的提示选最符合的选项。文中说到，英国人喜欢讨论天气，所以应该选C。
3. A 解析：本题从文章最后一句可以得出答案。
4. A 解析：文中第二段中只是给出一个讨论天气的例子。在cold的天气里人们希望天气warmer一点，问题中问的是人们通常希望怎么样，应该选泛一点的选项，所以选better.
5. D 解析：本题从第一句可以得到答案。
