题1：—It looks as if he were drunk.
—So it does. _________.
A. He’d better give up drinking B. He shouldn’t have drunk so muchC. Health is more important than drink D. I wonder why he is always doing so【分析】此题最佳答案为D，但A、B、C均有可能误选，主要是受题中 drunk 一词的影响。
做此题的关键是要抓住It looks as if he were drunk 中的关键词were，因为它表明此句的谓语为虚拟语气，也就是说，“他喝醉了”不是事实，只是他的言行好像是喝醉了，所以此题的最佳答案是D。另外注意，句中的 so it does 表示强调，意为：他看上去的确像是喝醉了。
—The building looks beautiful. 这房子看上去很美。
—Yes, so it does. 是的，看上去的确很美。
此句中的 so it does 也表强调。
题2：I had hoped to see her off at the station, but I _________ too busy.
A. was B. had been C. would be D. would have been【分析】此题容易误选B或D，认为前句用了had hoped，所以此句谓语要用B或D与之呼应。正确答案为A：前一句谓语用had hoped，表示的是过去未曾实现的想法或打算，可以译为“本想”，而后一句说“我太忙”，这是陈述过去的一个事实，所以要用一般过去时。请看类例(答案均为A)：
(1) We had hoped to catch the 10:20 train, but _________ it was gone.
A. found B. had found C. would find D. would have found(2) We had hoped that you would be able to visit us, but you _________.
