  Questions 51 to 55 are based on the following passage。

  1-5 ABBCA

  报告说,来自中国、澳大利亚、海湾地区、印度及美国的游客数量增长最为明显,其中中国游客数量和消费支出均实现两位数增长,是“全球最具价值的游客输出国”。

  You probably know about the Titanic, but it was actually just one
of three state-of-the art (最先进的) ocean ships back in the day。 The
Olympic class ships were built by the Harland & Wolff ship makers in
Northern Ireland for the White Star Line company。 The Olympic class
included the Olympic, the Britannic and the Titanic。 What you may not
know is that the Titanic wasn’t even the flagship of this class。 All in
all, the Olympic class ships were marvels of sea engineering, but they
seemed cursed to suffer disastrous fates。

  1.A) The return of bottled message to its owner‘s daughtter。

  数据显示,2017年全年入境英国的游客达3920万人次,比上年增长4%;游客支出总计322亿美元,涨幅为9%。

  The Olympic launched first in 1910, followed by the Titanic in
1911, and lastly the Britannic in 1914。 The ships had nine decks, and
White Star Line decided to focus on marking them the most luxurious
ships on the water。

  2.B) She wanted to honor her father‘s promise。

  目前,欧洲大陆仍是英国旅游市场最大的游客来源地,去年来自欧盟成员国的游客数量达2560万人次,旅游支出超过130亿美元,为历史最高。

  Stretching 269.13 meters, the Olympic class ship were wonders of
naval technology, and everyone thought that they would continue to be
so for quite some time。 However, all suffered terrible accidents on
the open seas。 The Olympic got wrecked before the Titanic did, but it
was the only one survive and maintain a successful career of 24 years。
The Titanic was the first to sink after famously hitting a huge iceberg
in 1912。 Following this disaster, the Britannic hit a naval mine in
1916 and subsequently sank as well。

  3.B) Several cases of Zika disease had been identified。

  英国负责旅游事务的高级官员迈克尔·埃利斯说:“英国旅游业正在蓬勃发展。去年是创历史纪录的一年。来自中国、印度和海湾国家等重要市场的游客人数比以往任何时候都多。我们正努力保持这种良好的增长势头,鼓励更多海外游客到英国旅游。”

  Each ship was coal-powered by several boilers constantly kept
running by exhausted crews below deck。 Most recognizable of the ship
designs are the ship‘s smoke stacks, but the fourth stack was actually
just artistic in nature and served no functional purpose。 While two of
these ship sank, they were all designed with double hulls (船体)
believed to make them “unsinkable”, perhaps a mistaken idea that led to
the Titanic’s and the Britannic‘s tragic end。

  4.C) It lost a huge stock of bees。

  The Olympic suffered two crashes with other ships and went on to
serve as a hospital ship and troop transport in World WarⅠ。
