After the birth of my second child, I got a job at a restaurant. Having worked with an experienced 36 for a few days, I was 37to wait tables on my own. All went 38 that first week. When Saturday night came, I was luckily 39 the tables not far from the kitchen. 40 , I still felt a little hard to carry the heavy trays (托盘)。
Before I knew it, the 41 was full of people. I moved slowly, 42 every step. I remember how 43 I was when I saw the tray stand near the tables, it looked different from the one I was 44 on. It had nice handles (手柄)，which made it 45to move around. I was pleased with everything and began to 46I was a natural at this job.
Then, an old man came to me and said, “Excuse me, dear, my wife and I loved __47 you work. It seems your tray stand has been very 48 to you, but we are getting ready to 49 now, and my wife needs her 50 back.”
At first his 51 did not get across. “What was he talking about!” Then I got it. I had set my trays on his wife’s orthopedic walker (助步器). I stood frozen as ice, but my face was 52 . I wanted to get into a hole and 53 .
Since then, I have learned from many mistakes such as the one I just 54 , I have learned to be more 55 and not to be too sure of myself.

主人公在生育第二个孩子后重新到餐厅工作（After the birth of my second child, I got a job at a restaurant），由于身体虚弱（文章没有交代），尽管负责照看离厨房不远的桌子（the tables not far from the kitchen），但在搬重盘子（应该是装了比较多食物的盘子，文章中没有交代）时还是感到很难（still felt a little hard to carry the heavy trays），以至于把别人的代步车当作托盘架（I saw the tray stand near the tables，这是错觉）。
如36小题，若单看Having worked with an experienced 36 for a few days,一句，36小题的4个选项 A. manager; B. assistant; C. cook; D. waitress都可以成为正确答案，但一旦有了前面说的I got a job at a restaurant.后面对于她的工作的描述，我们就可以判断，答案应该是waitress，因为这是她的工作。
All went 38 that first week.
38. A. well B. quickly C. safely D. wrong
本小题A、D两个选项语义对立，显然干扰点在于语境理解，只有理解语境就能在二者之间做出选择。后面接着that first week，这样使得B项的语义干扰性加大。后面说到工作中出现一些差池，这样C项在语境上也具有一定的干扰性。所以，本小题的B、C、D3个干扰项都有一定的干扰性。遗憾的是，由于go (went) well是一个学生非常熟悉的短语，well作为A项出现，就明显降低了B、C、D本来的干扰性，使得本题的干扰性大大降低。我们在实验中发现，此题区分度几乎为零，访谈中学生告知，普遍都是从went well得出答案的，后面的选项只是看一下是否可能颠覆前面的选择。而我们把well调整为D项，马上出现很多学生选择quickly这个答案，选择另外两个答案的也明显增加。
