2015年全国高考英语2卷阅读理解A篇翻译与讲解



2015年普通高等学校招生全国统一考试新课标II卷
阅读理解  A
My color television has given me nothing but a headache. I was able to buy it a little over a year ago, because I had my relatives give me  money for my birthday instead of a lot of clothes that wouldn’t fit.
我的彩色电视带给我的只有头疼。我大概在一年前就能够买得起它了,因为我让我的亲戚们在我过生日时给我钱,而不是给些不合身的衣服。
I let a salesclerk fool me into buying a discontinued model, I realized this a day later, when I saw newspaper advertisements for the set at seventy-five dollars less than I had paid. The set worked so beautifully when I first got it home that I would keep it on until stations signed off for the night. Fortunately, I didn’t get any channels showing all-night movies or I would never have gotten to bed.
我被售货员欺骗,买了台过时的机型,我是买完第二天从报纸的广告上看到的,同款机型只要75美元,低于我花的钱。这台电视一开始太给力了,以至于我会一直让它打着,一直到晚上电视台都不放送节目了我才关上。还好,我没有播放一整晚电影的频道,不然的话我就不用睡觉了。
Then I started developing a problem with the set that involved static (静电) noise. For some reason, when certain shows switched into a commercial, a loud noise would sound for a few seconds. 
之后,我逐渐对这个有静电的家伙不满意了。不知道什么原因,当电视节目切换到广告时,会出现很大的响声,持续几秒。
Gradually, this noise began to appear during a show, and to get rid of it, I had to change to another channel and then change it back. Sometimes this technique would not work, and I had to pick up the set and shake it to remove the sound. I actually began to build up my arm muscles(肌肉) shaking my set.
渐渐地,这个响声开始在节目播放时就有。为了消除这个噪音,我只好切换到另一个频道,然后再切换回来。有时,这么做也不管用,为了摆脱这讨厌的噪音,我就得抬起电视,晃动它。事实上,我胳膊上的肌肉就是通过这样晃动电视增多起来的。
When neither of these methods removed the static noise ,I would sit helplessly and wait for the noise to go away. At last I ended up hitting the set with my fist, and it stopped working altogether .My trip to the repair shop cost me $62, and the set is working well now, but I keep expecting more trouble.
当以上两种方法都不能消除静电的噪音时,我就无助的坐着,等着噪音自动消失。结果就是我用拳头挥向这台电视,它彻底罢工了。我去修理店花费了62美元,现在这台电视可算是好好工作了。但是我一直认为它会继续带给我更多麻烦的。
