Dear Submissions Department,
In April's issue, you announced a call for submissions from new artists. I'm a recent graduate of the New York Art Institute, so my career is just getting underway. My work has won several awards from contests and exhibitions 1 at my school, but I haven't displayed my work yet at a gallery.
Per the guidelines listed in the submissions request, I've enclosed both a résumé 2 a short autobiography, as well as 8 x10 photographs of several of my pieces.
I'd love to have my work shown in your magazine, since I've had nothing but respect for your 3 since I started subscribing to it seven years ago.
Please let me know if you like any of the pieces (or would like to see others), and I'll be happy to send you large digital scans. Thank you for the opportunity to let me show you my work.
All the best,
1. (A) hold (B) holds (C) holding (D) held
2. (A) with (B) besides (C) and (D) also
3. (A) publication (B) admission (C) trend (D) factor
1. 答案 (D)
空格中應填入可以修飾其前之名詞 contests and exhibitions ( 比賽和展覽 ) 的字詞。因為比賽和展覽是「被」舉辦的，所以本題應選過去分詞 (D) held 。
2. 答案 (C)
本題考相關連接詞組的用法： both A and B ，而 A 項和 B 項必須對等。在本句中 A 項為 a résumé ， B 項為 a short autobiography ，空格中應填入 (C) and 。
3. 答案 (A)
由收信者 Art Today ( 今日藝術 ) 及本句中提到的 magazine ( 雜誌 ) 可知，寫信者要表達的是對對方出版「刊物」的敬意。正確答案為 (A) publication 。選項 (B) admission ( 入會 / 學許可 ) 、 (C) trend ( 趨勢 ) 、 (D) factor ( 因素 ) 皆與文意不搭軋。
