2. B success 名词，保留远动词含义"成功"是不可数名词；如用来代替具体的人（成功者）或具体的事（成功的事情（东西））是可数名词。故排除C,D；A中how是副词，如改成how great a success就是正确的。
3. B 抽象名词不特指时，前不用冠词。
4. D 如将A项中was, since改成is, since是正确的；即从句中谓语先发生。如用B项，是强调句，而强调句前后两个谓语动词在时间上必须一致（a）；被强调部分能还回原句中（b），即因为句中was declared是过去时, B项中is改成was；因为句中was declared是非延续性动词，在years后加上ago将"一段" 时间变成"一点"就是正确的。C 项前后时间不一致。
5. C whichever已失去疑问含义，等于 anything that，表示强调； 而 which topic中 which保留疑问含义，译成"哪一个题目"，不符合句义。而A和D中缺少连词。
7. A 题目中has made是谓语，communication between people far apart短语是宾语，convenient是宾语的补语，被前置。如用B项,it是形式宾语代替不定式或从句。
10. B 在让步，时间等状语从句中，如果主从句中主语一致，从句中谓语含 be动词，可以将从句中的主语和 be 省略，即在how 后加they(the works) are，再分别与选择项搭配后，就会发现正确答案是B。
