  捡钱不还虽可享用一时,但良心会一辈子不安;拾金不昧虽有点一时不忍,但那种感觉将会worth more than anything could buy。   I worked for a short time as a cashier(出纳员) at a restaurant a few months ago. I also helped to clean up the tables when it was very busy. One night, just before Christmas, I found a large black wallet on the floor near one of the tables. I guessed I should check it to find out who was the owner, but I was very busy at the time. And I imagined that if there was something valuable(有价值的) in the wallet, the owner would be back. Sure enough, an hour later a man came up to the counter and asked if anyone had found a wallet. I asked him to describe the lost wallet, and after he described it exactly, I gave him the wallet. He expressed his thanks when I handed it to him. He asked me if I had opened it, and when I told him “no”。 At once he opened it and showed that it had nearly $ 800 in cash(现金)。 He took out a twenty-dollar bill and handed it to me and I was amazed at this. “A reward(酬劳) for your honesty,” he said and then turned and walked away.   Thinking about it later, I began wondering whether I would have been honest if I had known what was in the wallet! I thought that if I had no way to find the owner and no one returned to get it, I might keep it. But it also came into my mind that I actually saved someone’s Christmas plans by finding and returning the wallet. The good feeling it gave me was worth more than anything could buy.   根据以上短文内容,然后从每题所给的四个选项中选择最佳选项。   1. Which of the following is true?   A. The owner of the wallet found a twenty-dollar bill gone.   B. The writer wasn’t surprised when the man gave her a reward.   C. Nothing in the wallet was missing.   D. The man was very, very excited when he got his wallet back.   2. The writer returned the wallet to the owner because _______.   A. she thought Christmas was coming   B. the owner came back too soon   C. she didn’t know there was so much money in it   D. as an honest person, she didn’t care much about money   3. Which of the following is NOT true?   A. The writer accepted a reward of $ 20.   B. The writer regretted(后悔) that she had returned the wallet.   C. The writer didn’t return the wallet until the owner came back.   D. The writer fell very happy after she returned the wallet.   【答案及解析】   1. 选C。由于作者并未打开钱包,更没有从中取出什么,所以说Nothing in the wallet was missing。   2. 选B。根据文章最后一段中的Thinking about it later, I began wondering whether I would have been honest if I had known what was in the wallet! I thought that if I had no way to find the owner and no one returned to get it, I might keep it可排除选项C和D。比较选项A和B,再结合文章大意,选B为佳(from www.zkenglish.com   3. 选B。此题可用排除法来做:根据第1段最后两句He took out a twenty-dollar bill and handed it to me and I was amazed at this. “A reward for your honesty,” he said and then turned and walked away可知选项A与文章内容相符;选项B的意思是“作者直到失主返回来才将钱包还给他”,这显然与文章内容相符;根据第2段最后一句话The good feeling it gave me was worth more than anything could buy可知,选项D也与文章内容相符。
