① 利用解释作为从上下文猜词的线索,即根据定义猜词. 对生词的解释,往往能够明确地告诉我们这个词的准确意思。常用的关键词和句型有：
...is/ are called 被叫做
...is/are known as 被称为
...can be defined as 可被定以为
(a) Desert can be defined as a large area of land where there is not enough rain and vegetation to support human life.
(b) A linguist, an expert on languages, is always listening.
such as 例如
like 像，如 especially 尤其是 for instance 例如 for example 例如
例如：Cars must have certain safety devices such as seat belt, headlights, and good brakes.

Metal expands when heated and contracts when cooled.
从句子结构看，expand与contract相对应，when heated与when cooled相对应。因为加热与使冷却是相反的动作，那么expand与contract也应该是相反的。
例如:She is usually prompt for all her class, but today she arrived in the middle of her first class.
but 一词表转折，因此but 前后的意思正相反。后半句的意思是她今天"第一节上了一半才来"，因此反向推理，可得出她平时一向"准时"的结论。

We live in a materialistic society and trained from our earlier days to try to get more.
This materialistic opinion has seriously influenced education. Fewer and fewer young people these days learn knowledge only for their own benefit. Every course of studies must lead somewhere, i.e. to a good deal of money. The supply cannot satisfy the demand for skilled personnel(人才) and big companies compete with each other to get good students from the university before they have completed their studies. Big salaries are offered to them. This kind leads to the brain drain, the process by which highly skilled people offer their services to the highest bidder(the company which provides them more money). The most able citizens of poorer nation move to the wealthier neighbors.
As a result, the rich get richer and the poor, poorer.
The underlined word means ______.
A.shortage of skilled personnel
B. outflow of talented people
D. interchangeability of personnel
