SECTION A STATEMENT
本题要求判断说话人的身份。 如果只听到只言片语，如policy就会受到D: 政治家 的干扰， 或fire而受到B: 消防队员 的干扰；只有听清全文，联系上下文，才可判断出这里policy意思是“保险单，保险契约”，而非“政策”，也才能推测出其职业应为A: 保险代理人。
2. “尽管Susan在银行有大笔存款， 但她的衣服却一点儿也不时髦。”
由though引导的表示让步功能的分句， 暗示Susan尽管有钱却不买时髦的衣服，即在衣服上花费不多，C最切合题意。 anything but: 除…之外，恰恰不，决不
4. “Lucy宁可什么也不做， 也不愿整晚打游戏机。” 也就是说Lucy最不愿意玩游戏机了。 B最接近原意。. would rather …than… = would sooner…than…: 宁可…而不…, 最好…而不…
5. “Andrew的车刚开到车库， 汽油就用完了。”
A: 他的汽油用完了；B: 他刚给车加满油; C: 到车库时，他的车还剩一点油; D: 他遇到了车祸。了解词组run out of (用完，耗尽）也就能选出A为正确答案。
6. “外表可能是靠不住的。”也就是说不能以貌取人，依赖外表作出判断，D: 不要相信外表 与此含义最接近。
7. “Thurber在童年时的一次事故中弄瞎了一只眼睛， 但他仍在写作生涯中获得了成功。”
despite of = in spite of : 尽管，任凭，是表达转折， 让步关系的介词词组。 文中说尽管Thurber在失去一只眼睛的不利情况下，仍成为了个成功的作家。 A：他是个伟大的作家 与此最接近。
8. “他其实不必告诉我音乐会的时间， 我已经知道了。”
作为情态助动词，need一般只用于否定句和疑问句。 “needn’t + 不定式完成体”表示过去本来不必做某事却做了。因此原句可理解为“其实他不必告诉我， 但他告诉了。” 所以C为最佳选择。
另外：“needn’t do / don’t need to”表示没有必要而不去做。
9. “在阅读过程中， 我们必须从字里行间领会隐含之意。”
in the course of …: 在…过程中
理解词组read between the lines: （从字里行间﹑言词﹑行动中) 领会言外之意﹑体会隐含之意 就不难理解本题的真实含义，从而选出正确答案B。www.59wj.com 如果觉得《英语专业八级考试听力试题分析》专八听力指导,yyzszb不错，可以推荐给好友哦。
