问题     Change, or the ability to【C1】______oneself to a changing environment is essential【C2】______evolution. The farmer whose land is required for housing or industry must adapt himself; he can transfer to another place and master the problems【C3】______to it; he can change his occupation, perhaps【C4】______a period of training; or he can starve to death. A nation which can’t adapt its trade or defense requirements to【C5】______world conditions faces an economic and military disaster. Nothing is fixed and permanently stable. 【C6】______must be movement forward, which is progress of a sort, and movement backward, which is decay and deterioration.
    In a changing world, tradition can be a force for good or for evil. 【C7】______long as it offers a guide, it helps the ignorant and the uninformed to take a step【C8】______and, thereby adapt themselves to【C9】______circumstances. But if we make an idol of tradition, it ceases to be a guide. It becomes an obstacle【C10】______on the path of course. Man is to accept the help which tradition can give but to be well aware of its limitations in a changing world.
【C9】

选项 A、unchanging
B、changed
C、old-fashioned
D、up-to-date

答案B

解析 从语法角度看,4个词都可作circumstances的定语。但从上下文内容分析,此处应译为“……因此使他们适应变化的环境。”本句中的thereby意为“因此,所以”,等于therefore;C.old-fashioned(过时的);D.up—to—date(时髦的);A.unchanging为现在分词,时态不合适。
