[Reading Comprehension] 试题详情

    Ecoefficiency (measures to minimize environmental impact through the reduction or elimination of waste from production processes) has become a goal for companies worldwide, with many realizing significant cost savings from such innovations. Peter Senge and Goran Carstedt see this development as laudable but suggest that simply adopting ecoefficiency innovations could actually worsen environmental stresses in the future. Such innovations reduce production waste but do not alter the number of products manufactured nor the waste generated from their use and discard; indeed, most companies invest in ecoefficiency improvements in order to increase profits and growth. Moreover, there is no guarantee that increased economic growth from ecoefficiency will come in similarly ecoefficient ways, since in today's global markets, greater profits may be turned into investment capital that could easily be reinvested in old-style eco-inefficient industries. Even a vastlymore ecoefficient industrial system could, were it to grow much larger, generate more total waste and destroy more habitat and species than would a smaller, less ecoefficient economy. Senge and Carstedt argue that to preserve the global environment and sustain economic growth, businesses must develop a new systemic approach that reduces total material use and total accumulated waste. Focusing exclusively on ecoefficiency, which offers a compelling business case according to established thinking, may distract companies from pursuing radically different products and business models.
The passage implies that which of the following is a possible consequence of a company's adoption of innovations that increase its ecoefficiency?

Options:

Company profits resulting from such innovations may be reinvested in that company with no guarantee that the company will continue to make further improvements in ecoefficiency.
Company growth fostered by cost savings from such innovations may allow that company to manufacture a greater number of products that will be used and discarded, thus worsening environmental stress.
A company that fails to realize significant cost savings from such innovations may have little incentive to continue to minimize the environmental impact of its production processes.
A company that comes to depend on such innovations to increase its profits and growth may be vulnerable in the global market to competition from old-style eco-inefficient industries.
A company that meets its ecoefficiency goals is unlikely to invest its increased profits in the development of new and innovative ecoefficiency measures.

Correct:

B

在A和B选项之间徘徊,定位为什么是Such innovations reduce...,而不是Moreover 后面那句话

在BC之间纠结。我觉得B在文章21-23行已经提到,应该不算是imply了。而C刚好对应很多公司希望达成这个目标是因为可以节省成本,如果没节省自然就不会再继续了...DE选项我觉得无关就没有再多看。这道题如何找定位呢?[img=/resource/2017-08/140-1503843120.jpg]

请张慧雯老师回答一下。这里的A选项为什么不正确,定位到“Moreover, there is no guarantee that increased economic growth from ecoefficiency will come in similarly ecoefficient ways, since in today's global markets, greater profits may be turned into investment capital that could easily be reinvested in old-style eco-inefficient industries.”觉得和A选项意思相符合,因此选择了这个选项。感谢解答!

郭老师好,这个题A和B怎么选择呢?adoption of innovations that increase its ecoefficiency定位文章的adopting ecoefficiency innovations could actually worsen environmental stresses in the future。这句话之后一直到Senge and C argue,我觉得都是细节,是需要读这些细节来选择么?
