  参考答案及解析

  Answer to Question 1

  In English, x [is] expected to y is idiomatic usage: expected for it to in choice A and expected that it should in choice C are thus unidiomatic. Choice D awkwardly substitutes its rise for the pronoun it as the subject of might have been expected; since it refers to inflation, the subject of the verb eased, it is preferable as the subject of might have been expected, the verb form corresponding to eased. Choice E is needlessly wordy, roundabout, and vague. Choice B is best.

  Answer to Question 2

  The phrases equivalent to in A, the equivalent of in B, and equal to in C have too broad a range of meanings to be used precisely here: that is, they can suggest more than merely numerical equality. Also, as quantitative expressions, equivalent and equal often modify nouns referring to uncountable things, as in "an equivalent amount of resistance" or "a volume of water equal to Lake Michigan." To establish numerical comparability between groups with countable members, the phrase as many as is preferable. Choice D, however, uses this phrase improperly in comparing eight million people to enrollment, not to other people. The comparison in E, the best choice, is logical because people is understood as the subject of are enrolled.
