  下面我们从一道OG题目中为大家详细讲解:

  Society is indeed a contract. Subordinate contracts for objects of mere occasional interest may bedissolved at pleasure—but the state ought not to be considered as nothing better than a partnership agreement in a trade of pepper and coffee, calico or tobacco, or some other such low concern, to be taken up for a little temporary interest, and to be dissolved by the fancy of the parties. It is to be looked on with other reverence; because it is not a partnership in things subservient only to the gross animal existence of a temporary and perishable nature. It is apartnership in all science; a partnership in all art; a partnership in every virtue, and in all perfection …

  34. As used in line 22, “low” most nearly means

  A) petty.

  B) weak.

  C) inadequate.

  D) depleted.

  这道题问的是文章中的"low"这个词,这个词大家很熟悉这个词也很简单,常见的意思是“低的”,这个意思放在原文中some other such low concern显然是不对的。这样我们就要回到原文中去看看在语境中这个词是什么意思。作者是在说 “subordinate contracts” 只不过是在贸易货物上达成的商业协议,然而国家并不仅仅是 “a partnership agreement in a trade of pepper and coffee, calico or tobacco, or some other such low concern”, 而应该是 “a partnership in all science; a partnership in all art; a partnership in every virtue, and in all perfection”。从结构可以看出, “such low concern” 应该和 “all science”, “ all art”, “ every virtue”, “all perfection” 是对比关系。作者用“all”和“every” 这样的措辞强调的是完整的、成体系的、大规模的含义,那题干中的 “low” 就应该是与之相反的含义。A选项中的petty,有 “琐碎的、小规模的” 含义,刚好和 “all science”, “ all art”, “ every virtue”, “all perfection” 这些成体系的、大规模的含义形成对比。因此A选项为答案
