An eight-year-old child heard her parents talking about her little brother. All she knew was that he was very sick and they had no money. Only a very expensive operation

could save him now and there was no one to lend them the money.

When she heard her daddy say to her tearful mother, “Only a miracle can save him now,” the little girl went to her bedroom and pulled her money from its hiding place and counted it carefully.

She hurried to a drugstore (药店) with the money in her hand.

“And what do you want?” asked the salesman. “It‘s for my little brother,” the girl answered. “He’s really, really sick and I want to buy a miracle.” “Pardon?” said the salesman.

“My brother Andrew has something bad growing in-side his head and my daddy says only a miracle can save him. So how much does a miracle cost?” “We don‘t sell a miracle here, child. I’m sorry,” the salesman said with a smile.

“Listen, if it isn‘t enough, I can try and get some more. Just tell me how much it costs.”

A well-dressed man heard it and asked, “What kind of a miracle does your brother need?”

“I don‘t know,” she answered with her eyes full of tears. “He’s really sick and mum says he needs an opera-tion. But my daddy can‘t pay for it, so I have brought all my money.”

“How much do you have?” asked the man. “$ 1.11, but I can try and get some more,” she answered.

“Well, what luck,” smiled the man. “$ 1.11, the price of a miracle for little brothers.”

He took up the girl‘s hand and said, “Take me to where you live. I want to see your brother and meet your parents. Let’s see if I have the kind of miracle you need.”

That well-dressed man was Dr Carlton Armstrong, a famous doctor. The operation was successful and it wasn‘t long before Andrew was home again.

How much did the miracle cost?

A. The doctor didn‘t ask for any pay

B. A miracle is sure to happen if you keep on

C. The little girl is lovely but not so clever

D. Andrew was in fact not so sick as they had thought


1. 选 D.根据第 1 段中的 All she knew was that he was very sick and they had no money 可知答案。

2. 选 C.由于这个小女孩的家很穷,而她的兄弟又病得那样重,所以她的父亲说 Only a miracle can save him now,小女孩听了之后便翻出她所有的“积蓄”去药店购买 miracle, 由此可见, 小女孩可能认为 miracle 是一种什么很神奇的药。 miracle 的实际意思是 注: “奇 迹”,Only a miracle can save him now 的意思是“只有出现奇迹才可能救得了他”。

3. 选 B.根据上下文语境,I can try and get some more 后其实省略了 money 一词, 句意为“我会想办法弄更多钱来的”。因为小女孩担心自己的钱不够而买不到 miracle,所 以反复对药店老板和那位穿着讲究的人说这句话,其意思显然是希望自己不遭到拒绝。

4.选 A.根据文章内容,用排除法可知只有选项 A 最佳。即是这个小女孩对其兄弟的爱 感动了著名医生 Carlton Armstrong 先生,从而出现“奇迹”,使她的兄弟获救。

5.选 A.因为这个小女孩的家很穷,就是因为支付不起昂贵的医疗费才会有奇迹一说, 而最后小女孩的兄弟确实是康复了,显然医生并没有要求他们家支付医疗费。
