2022학년도 수능 영어 44번, 해설 (문제 풀이)
44. 밑줄 친 (a)～(e) 중에서 가리키는 대상이 나머지 넷과 다른 것은?
In the gym, members of the taekwondo club were busy practicing. Some were trying to kick as high as they could, and some were striking the sparring pad. Anna, the head of the club, was teaching the new members basic moves. Close by, her friend Jane was assisting Anna. Jane noticed that Anna was glancing at the entrance door of the gym. She seemed to be expecting someone. At last, when Anna took a break, Jane came over to (a) her and asked, “Hey, are you waiting for Cora?”
Cora walked in like a wounded soldier with bandages on her face and arms. Surprised, Anna and Jane simply looked at her with their eyes wide open. Cora explained, “I’m sorry I’ve been absent. I got into a bicycle accident, and I was in the hospital for two days. Finally, the doctor gave me the okay to practice.” Anna said excitedly, “No problem! We’re thrilled to have you back!” Then, Jane gave Anna an apologetic look, and (b) she responded with a friendly pat on Jane’s shoulder.
Anna answered the question by nodding uneasily. In fact, Jane knew what her friend was thinking. Cora was a new member, whom Anna had personally invited to join the club. Anna really liked (c) her. Although her budget was tight, Anna bought Cora a taekwondo uniform. When she received it, Cora thanked her and promised, “I’ll come to practice and work hard every day.” However, unexpectedly, she came to practice only once and then never showed up again.
Since Cora had missed several practices, Anna wondered what could have happened. Jane, on the other hand, was disappointed and said judgingly, “Still waiting for her, huh? I can’t believe (d) you don’t feel disappointed or angry. Why don’t you forget about her?” Anna replied, “Well, I know most newcomers don’t keep their commitment to the club, but I thought that Cora would be different. She said she would come every day and practice.” Just as Jane was about to respond to (e) her, the door swung open. There she was!
수능에 대명사 문제를 매년 출제하는 이유는 무엇일까요?
대명사 문제를 매년 출제하는 것은 영어는 반복하는 것을 몹시 싫어하는 언어라는 것을 기억하라는 것이고, 동시에 he를 ‘그는’, she ‘그녀는’, it ‘그것은’, they ‘그들은’ 방식으로 대명사를 대하지 말라는 것입니다.
대명사는 바로 앞에 나왔던 명사를 대신합니다. 즉, she를 ‘Cora는’처럼 읽어야 합니다. 이렇게 읽으면, 읽는 순간 바로 답을 찾을 수 있습니다.
(a), (b), (e)는 43번을 풀면서 해결되었습니다. (c), (d)만 찾으면 됩니다.
