英语阅读。In the United States Government文章中的数字，表明时间、特征量间的数量关系，对于说明事物特征具有文字所不能及的作用。
， the laws are made by the Congress， which has the House of Representatives and the Senate. They are almost equal in power. The House of Representatives is larger than the Senate whose 100 members serve for six years. The 435 members of the House are elected every two years， and the number from each state is determined by the population of the state.
1. The House of Representatives has more members than the Senate.
A. 100 B. 435
C. 535 D. 335
点评：由原文The House of Representatives is larger than the Senate whose 100 members serve for six years. The 435 members of the House are elected every two years可知答案为D.文中出现的数字为100和435，运用了减法。数字题往往需运用简单的四则运数，但是绝对不可能出现开平方，求微分等高级的数学运数。在高中阶段，我们常见的文章体裁有三种，分别是记叙文、说明文、议论文。记叙文开头交待文章的时间、地点、人物关系，结尾往往总结出文章的主旨抑或有几句含金量很高的句子，可以作为推断题细节题滋生的天然土壤。说明文每段第一句话总写该段段意，最后一段下结论，总结全文。议论文开头引出话题抑或提出论点，最后一段总结论点。从中同学们可以看出，无论是记叙文、说明文、议论文，文章中最重要最帅气的段落，往往是开头结尾，所以对于开头结尾我们一定要认真理解，尤其是文章中的最后一段的最后一句话。

一篇文章中出现because/for/since/so/as a result等表示原因抑或结果的词引导的语句，往往含金量非常高，是出题老师出细节题的最爱。
Fu‘s soup became the talk of the town. Many people came to see him. Once a restaurant owner asked him what was in the soup. “I’ll tell you，” Fu said. “But if your restaurant going to sell the soup you must call it brains because of its shape and colour.
