  Grüner See: The Green Lake  絕美的水下公園
by Daniel Howard
This lake is a unique diving experience for the diver that's seen it all.
這座湖對於閱歷豐富的潛水者來說是一趟獨特的潛水體驗。

  Grüner See is a lake in Styria, Austria. The name literally means "Green Lake," and is so named because of its emerald green water. In the winter, it's just an ordinary lake, though it is undoubtedly beautiful as it is surrounded by forests and mountains. _(1)_
  During the winter, the deepest part of Grüner See is only one or two meters deep. _(2)_ With the water at a bone-chilling four to eight degrees Celsius, it is only for those divers with the right gear and a high tolerance to the cold. For those willing to brave the cold, though, there is a whole new underwater world.
  Even after being covered with water, the nearby meadows remain green, and often any flowers that had bloomed are still visible. _(3)_ The water is very clean and perfectly clear, which makes visibility perfect. _(4)_ Divers can sit on a bench at the bottom of the lake, and even see a footbridge over what might be a stream in the drier season. _(5)_ Grüner See might be the only place on Earth where both divers and hikers can use the same space.

(A) It is this grass, along with other foliage, that gives Grüner See its distinct green color.
(B) In the spring, however, the snow melts off the nearby mountains and fills the lake until it overflows into the surrounding countryside.
(C) Divers even have the option of swimming along the walking trails that hikers might use once the water recedes again.
(D) In June, the deepest parts of the lake are up to 12 meters deep, which is a great depth for divers wanting to see the nearby area perfectly preserved in the cold water.
(E) There are also some human-made structures that are submerged when the snow melts.


文法一點靈
  1. 第一題空格應選 (B)
    理由:
    a. 空格前一句提及 "In the winter, it's just an ordinary lake..."(在冬天它只是一座普普通通的湖……),而 (B) 項的句子提及 "In the spring, however, the snow melts off the nearby mountains..."(然而,在春天時,附近山脈中的積雪融化……),前一句的 In the winter(在冬天)和後一句的 In the spring(在春天時)前後對比,故形成關聯。
    b. 根據上述,(B) 項應為正選。
    大補丸:
    a. melt off...  融化……
    b. overflow vi. 溢出
    衍: overflow with...  充滿∕洋溢著……
    David overflowed with joy when he won a free trip to Tokyo.

  2. 第二題空格應選 (D)
    理由:

    preserve vt. 維護,保護
    The scientist is trying his best to preserve the natural habitat of the butterflies.

  3. 第三題空格應選 (A)
    理由:
    a. 空格前一句提及 "Even after being covered with water, the nearby meadows remain green..."(附近的草地即使沒入水中後依舊翠綠……),而 (A) 項的句子提及 "It is this grass, along with other foliage, that gives Grüner See its distinct green color."(正是這種綠草以及其他樹葉,賦予了翠湖那獨特的翠綠顏色。),後一句的 grass(綠草)指的即是前一句的 meadows(草地),故形成關聯。
    b. 根據上述,(A) 項應為正選。
    大補丸:
    a. foliage n. 樹葉(集合名詞)
    b. distinct a. 獨特的
  4. 第四題空格應選 (E)

    b. 根據上述,(E) 項應為正選。
    大補丸:
    submerge vt. 淹沒
    The devastating flood submerged the whole village.
    那場毀滅性的洪水淹沒了整座村莊。

    理由:
    a. 空格後一句提及 "Grüner See might be the only place on Earth where both divers and hikers can use the same space."(翠湖或許是世上唯一一個能讓潛水者與徒步登山客使用相同空間的地方。),而 (C) 項的句子提及 "Divers even have the option of swimming along the walking trails that hikers might use once the water recedes again."(潛水者甚至有機會沿著步行小徑游泳,這是徒步登山客於湖水再次退去時可能會行走的小徑。),前後兩句皆提及 hikers (徒步登山客)一字,故形成關聯。
    b. 根據上述,(C) 項應為正選。
    大補丸:
    a. trail n. 小道
    b. recede vi. 後退

中文翻譯&標準答案


絕美的水下公園
這座湖對於閱歷豐富的潛水者來說是一趟獨特的潛水體驗。

  翠湖是位於奧地利史泰利亞邦的一座湖。該湖名稱按字面上的意思是『綠色的湖』,因其翠綠的湖水而得名。在冬天它只是一座普普通通的湖,不過卻被森林與群山環繞而美得無庸置疑。然而,在春天時,附近山脈中的積雪融化,雪水注滿了翠湖直到溢出至臨近的鄉間。

  冬季期間,翠湖最深的部份只有一兩公尺深。六月時,該湖最深的部份可達十二公尺,對於那些渴望一睹完整保留於寒冷水中附近區域的潛水者來說,這是最適當的深度。由於湖水寒冷刺骨,介於攝氏四到八度之間,因此它僅適合那些擁有適當裝備且耐低溫的潛水者進入。不過,對於那些甘冒寒冷的人而言,那裡有一個全新的水底世界。

  附近的草地即使沒入水中後依舊翠綠,而通常在湖水淹沒前就已綻放的花朵在水底依然可見。正是這種綠草以及其他樹葉,賦予了翠湖那獨特的翠綠顏色。湖水清澈至極且十分乾淨,這使得水中能見度非常高。那裡也有一些人造建築在雪融化時沒入融雪中。潛水者可以坐在湖底的長椅上,甚至還能看到一座越過在較乾燥季節中可能是小溪流的步行橋。潛水者甚至有機會沿著步行小徑游泳,這是徒步登山客於湖水再次退去時可能會行走的小徑。翠湖或許是世上唯一一個能讓潛水者與徒步登山客使用相同空間的地方。

答案: 1. B 2. D 3. A 4. E 5. C
