[PTE TIPS 001] Reorder paragraph

过年吃吃喝喝歇了两天,首先在此祝各位童鞋新年快乐,新的一年顺利和PTE分手,早日拿到pr,走上人生巅峰!

今天的练习是Reorder Paragraph,此题型有较为明确的技巧可循,而且这道题如果做得好,可以为Reading加分不少哦。

 

Tips for Reorder paragraph

  1. Identify the most general statement because usually it is the first part of the paragraph;
  2. Use pronouns, tenses, sequential or transition signals as cues;
  3. The contents must go from the most general statement to the most specific one.

 

Q1.

1). Thus begins the search for relief: painkillers, ice, yoga, herbs, even surgery
2). Most computer users develop disorders because they ignore warnings like tingling fingers, a numb hand or a sore shoulder
3). They keep pointing and dragging until tendons chafe and scar tissue forms, along with bad habits that are almost impossible to change
4). But cures are elusive because repetitive strain injuries present a bag of ills that often defy easy diagnosis. 2341

2). Food product lead in expenditures for network and spot television advertisements, discount coupons, trading stamps, contests, and other forms of premium advertising.

3). Foods are overwhelming the most advertised group of all consumer products in the U.S.

Q3

1). Wal-Mart has increased its Procter and Gamble diaper business by 50 percent and cut inventory by 70 percent because of this collaboration.

2). Several years ago, senior executives from Procter and Gamble and Wal-Mart met for two days.

3). As a result of this meeting, a team of Procter and Gamble employees moved to Bentonville, Arkansas, Wal-Mart's headquarters, to work with Wal-Mart executives on productivity and quality issues.

4). They wanted to explore how they could jointly apply quality management principles to the disposable diaper business. 2431

 

 

参考答案:
 

Q1: 2341

首先观察每句开头,thus和but这两句肯定是接在另一句后面,而computer users和They构成指代关系,同时most提示第二句最general,所以排出23;然后but表转折,thus表结果,第四句中提到cures(治疗),第一句跟上relief(缓解),所以排出41;最后,先说症状再说治疗,综合排出2341。

 

Q2: 3124

首先通读四句,最后一句有In other media,一定接在第二句之后,因为这两句都提到各种media,排出24;然后,第三句找到most…of all,最general,第一句有more than any other manufacturing group,对第三句进行延伸,排出31;最后,按照从general到specific排序原则,综合排出3124。

Q3:2431

首先通读四句,分别找到this collaboration, this meeting, they,所以134都不可能是首句,于是找出首句是2;然后,第二句中有senior executives,与第四句they形成指代关系,所以排出24;最后根据第三句as a result of this meeting,找到24提及的事件结果,同时根据时间顺序,综合排出2431。
