[Reading Comprehension] 试题详情

    In the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries, many Western Pueblo settlements in what is now the southwestern United States may have possessed distinctly hierarchical organizational structures. These communities' agricultural systems—which were "intensive" in the use of labor rather than "extensive" in area—may have given rise to political leadership that managed both labor and food resources. That formal management of food resources was needed is suggested by the large size of storage spaces located around some communal Great Kivas (underground ceremonial chambers). Though no direct evidence exists that such spaces were used to store food, Western Pueblo communities lacking sufficient arable land to support their populations could have preserved the necessary extra food, including imported foodstuffs, in such apparently communal spaces.

    Moreover, evidence of specialization in producing raw materials and in manufacturing ceramics and textiles indicates differentiation of labor within and between communities. The organizational and managerial demands of such specialization strengthen the possibility that a decision-making elite existed, an elite whose control over labor, the use of community surpluses, and the acquisition of imported goods would have led to a concentration of economic resources in their own hands. Evidence for differential distribution of wealth is found in burials of the period: some include large quantities of pottery, jewelry, and other artifacts, whereas others from the same sites lack any such materials.
According to the passage, which of the following is probably true of the storage spaces mentioned in the highlighted text?

Options:

They were used by the community elite for storage of their own food supplies.
They served a ceremonial as well as a practical function.
Their size is an indication of the wealth of the particular community to which they belonged.
Their existence proves that the community to which they belonged imported large amounts of food.
They belonged to and were used by the community as a whole.

Correct:

E

请问下慧雯老师,这道题英吉老师在刷题班里说选B,但我看这个storage是在GK旁边,GK才是礼仪场所。然后我选了D,从那个including imported foodstuffs得出,但当时觉得E也成立

According to the passage, which of the following is probably true of the storage spaces mentioned in the highlighted text?
这题我选了B。 因为高亮的部分在这句话中“That formal management of food resources was needed is suggested by the large size of storage spaces located around some communal Great Kivas (underground ceremonial chambers).”这句话中有提到storage spaces是地下的礼堂,后一句Though no direct evidence exists that such spaces were used to store food, Western Pueblo communities lacking sufficient arable land to support their populations could have preserved the necessary extra food, including imported foodstuffs, in such apparently communal spaces.说虽然没有明确的证据证明storage space是用来储存食物的,但是西方P社群的人需要公共的地方储存食物,我觉得这句话有暗示storage place也可以用来储存食物,有pratical function。不知道这样的想法哪里错了?
