  Whether we like it or not, the world we live in has changed _ in the last hundred years, and it is likely to change _ in the next hundred.

It was not so bad for a _ minority, though even they had to do without modern medicine, and childbirth was highly risky for women. But for the vast _ of the population, life was nasty, brutish, and short.

  ■填空答案■

  答案:

  privilege

  (1) privilege sb. from sth.表示”特免某人的…”的意思.

  例:Knowing the fact that his parents died, the headmaster privileged him for the fees.弄清楚他父母双亡的事实后,校长特免了他所有的费用.

  (2) grant sb. the privilege of doing sth.表示”赋予某人做某事的特权”的意思.

  例:The teacher granted the monitor the privilege of finishing the work after the holidays.老师特许班长在假期后做完工作.

  risk:后面只可接动名词用作宾语,不接动词不定式.

  run risks冒险

  take risks冒险

  at the risk of冒…的风险

  at risk可能遭到损失

  at one’s own risk自行负责

  run the risk of doing sth冒险做某事

  at all risks无论冒什么危险
