1.For every three Canadians in 1945, there were over five in 1966. In September 1966 Canada’s population passed the 20 million mark. Most of this surging growth came from natural increase. The word “surging” is closest in meaning to which of following? A) new B) extra C) accelerating D) surprising surging 表示激增,当你用increase用到想吐时,可以用这个词替代,它的同义词是soaring,反义词可以是plummet 。本题答案为C项

2.In addition, there were performers and since considerable importance was attached to avoiding mistakes in the enactment of rites, religious leaders usually assumed that task. The word “considerable” is closest in meaning to which of following? A) thoughtful B) substantial C) relational D) ceremonial Considerable这个词普遍程度极高但是很多同学看到了还是对这个词的意思有些迷惑,其实它指的是相当(大)的,相当(多)的,同义词可以是substantial,所以答案是 B

3.There are numerous unsubstantiated reports that natural vitamins are superior to synthetic ones, that fertilized eggs are nutritionally superior to unfertilized eggs, that untreated grains are better than fumigated grains, and the like. The word “unsubstantiated” is closest in meaning to which of following? A) unbelievable B) uncontested C) unpopular D) unverified 这么高大上一个词出现在托福中可以完爆很多同学背单词的信心,其实substantial可以表示数量,但是substantiate 意为证实,相当于verify,所以不管是出现在词汇题还是在文中,都能造成一定程度的杀伤,所以答案是 B

4.Staggering tasks confronted the people of the United States, North and South, when the Civil War ended. About a million and a half soldiers from both sides had to be demobilized, readjusted to civilian life, and reabsorbed by the devastated economy. The word “Staggering” is closest in meaning to which of following? A) specialized B) confusing C) various D) overwhelming Staggering 本身表示踉踉跄跄的,但是本题答案是D,相当于“严峻的”这一意思,因为后面的词是tasks

5.Next, the pertinent considerations that will be affected by each decision are listed, and the relative importance of each consideration or consequence is determined. The word “pertinent” is closest in meaning to which of following? A) relevant B) preceding C) insightful D) imminent 不得不说,这个pertinent是SAT词汇中的一员,本身使用这个词的频率也不高,而它的同义词relevant是大家最熟悉的一个,所以这道题的错误率也是很高的。所以答案是 A
