[Reading Comprehension] 试题详情

    Many researchers regard Thailand's recent economic growth, as reflected by its gross domestic product (GDP) growth rates, as an example of the success of a modern technological development strategy based on the market economics of industrialized countries. Yet by focusing solely on aggregate economic growth data as the measure of Thailand's development, these researchers have overlooked the economic impact of rural development projects that improve people's daily lives at the village levelsuch as the cooperative raising of water buffalo, improved sanitation, and the development of food crops both for consumption and for sale at local markets; such projects are not adequately reflected in the country's GDP. These researchers, influenced by Robert Heilbroner's now outdated development theory, tend to view nontechnological development as an obstacle to progress. Heilbroner's theory has become doctrine in some economics textbooks: for example, Monte Palmer disparages nontechnological rural development projects as inhibiting constructive change. Yet as Ann Kelleher's two recent case studies of the Thai villages Non Muang and Dong Keng illustrate, the nontechnological-versus-technological dichotomy can lead researchers not only to overlook real advances achieved by rural development projects but also mistakenly to conclude that because such advances are initiated by rural leaders and are based on traditional values and practices, they retard "real" economic development.
The author of the passage cites the work of Palmer in order to give an example of

Options:

a recent case study of rural development projects in Thai villages
current research that has attempted to reassess Thailand's economic development
an economics textbook that views nontechnological development as an obstacle to progress
the prevalence of the view that regards nontechnological development as beneficial but inefficient
a portrayal of nontechnological development projects as promoting constructive change

Correct:

C

老师,这题我刚开始的做题过程和您录音中的思路完全一致。然后看选项了,发现C的内容和文中的内容几乎完全一致。同时也看了其他选项,看到了B,发现B写的更像佛且方向和C差不多,最后选了B。 后来review时候觉得在比较BC时候是不是BC的主体不一样。B是research没C的textbook好(符合原文) 还有一个问题。我1周后考试了,最近在尝试用PREP模考时候发现总是打不开试题(一直loading),已经尝试了不同电脑和操作系统,且从不同地方下载了该软件均告无效。因此,我打算放弃使用该模考系统而改用博森的GWD再配合prep破解版数学练习模考。问老师这时候我需要注意些什么,这样会对考试产生什么影响么。谢谢
