A goat was feeding one day high on a rocky crag when a hungry wolf happened to pass below. The wolf tried several times to get a foothold on the rock but it was much too steep for him to climb (1). 有一天,山羊正高高地在一块石崖上吃草,一条饿狼碰巧打下面经过。狼想在石崖上找过立脚点,试了几次,但因石崖太陡,无法爬上去。

 

   “I wish you would come down a bit lower, little goat,” he said. “ You quite frighten me up there. If you are not careful you will slip and fall. Besides, the grass up there cannot be very nourishing. Down here it is rich and sweet. You’ll get a much better dinner down here.” “小山羊,我希望你能再往下面走点,”他说,“你高高地站在那儿,真使我感到恐怖。如果你不小心,就会失足掉下来。更何况,那上面的草不可能有营养。这下边的草又多又填。到下边来,你可以美餐一吨。”

   “Forgive me if I don’t take your advice,” bleated the goat. “You will get a better dinner if I come down, but I am not so sure that I will.” “请原谅我,我不能听从你的建议,”山羊咪咪地说道,“如果我走下去,你就会有一顿美餐了。但是,我会不会有一顿美餐,我就没有什么把握了。”

 

   With that he skipped even higher up the mountain while the wolf loped disappointedly  away.

 

  If you are wise, you won’t take any notice of an advice given by your enemy. 聪明人不会理会敌人的意见

Notes:

1.       …it was much too steep for him to climb.

注意句中的too …for him to climb结构,其意思是“太。。。。。。不能。。。。。。”。介词短语for him是不定式的逻辑主语,即是不定式动作的执行者。比如:She was too young to join the army.(她太年轻,不能参军。) / He was too smart not to see it. (他很聪明,会明白此事的。)

Questions:

1.       According to the story why did the goat not go down as the wolf requested?

A.      Because the rock was too steep for him to go down.

B.      Because the grass was better there.

C.      Because the goat might get hurt.

D.     Because the wolf would eat him up.

 

Key to the question:  1. D
