  Classic Intention Movement
  In social situations, the classic Intention Movement is “the
  chair-grasp”. Host and guest have been talking for some time, but now the host has an appointment to keep and can get away. His urge __1__
  to go is held in cheek by his desire not be rude to his guest. If he did __2__
  not care of his guest’s feelings he would simply get up out of his chair __3__
  and to announce his departure. This is what his body wants to do, __4__
  therefore his politeness glues his body to the chair and refuses to let him __5__
  raise. It is at this point that he performs the chair-grasp Intention __6__
  Movement. He continues to talk to the guest and listen to him, but leans
  forward and grasps the arms of the chair as about to push himself upwards. __7__
  This is the first act he would make if he were rising. If he were not __8__
  hesitating, it would only last the fraction of the second. He would lean, __9__
  push, rise, and be up. But now, instead, it lasts much longer. He
  holds his “readiness-to-rise” post and keeps on holding it. It is as if his __10__
  body had frozen at the get-ready moment.

  答案及解析:
  1. 将can改为must
  根据上下文的意思“主人有一个约会,必须离开”是客观要求,而不是“能不能”或者“可不可以”的问题。
  2. not后面加to
  desire 后应该加动词不定式to do something。
  3. 将of 改为about
  care about意思为“对…在意,在乎”,而care of 意思为“转交”
  (觉得还可以直接去掉 of,care 本身也有在乎的意思,可是答案不这么写,你怎么看嘞?)
  4. 删掉and或者to。
  5. 将therefore 改为 yet或but
  这两部分之间应是转折的关系。
  6. 将raise改为rise
  raise 是及物动词,后面必须加宾语,而且在此与文章意思不符。rise意为“起身”,“站起来”,符合文义。
  7. 在as 和 about之间加上if或者though
  此处的意思是主人身子往前倾,双手抓着椅子,好像就要站起来一样。as if/ though to do something 意思为“仿佛要做什么事情”。
  8. 将make改为perform或do
  此处考查搭配问题,动词make与前面的act不能搭配。
  9.将the改为a
  a fraction of a second 意思为非常短暂的时间。
  10. 将post改为posture
