【精析】考察虛擬語氣。it is/was+adj+that從句，此句型中當形容詞為 natural (自然 的), necessary (必須的),important (重要的),essential (本質的)，strange(奇怪的)時，that從句要用should+do的形式。Should可省略。
【解析】本題側試反意疑問句的用法。如果陳述部分含有表示否定意思的詞，如never, seldom , hardly, little疑問部分要用肯定式。故選擇C。例如:He never watches TV, does he?(他從不看電視，是嗎?)
【解析】本題測試虛擬語氣在表語從句中的用法。suggestion, proposal, request; command等名詞后面的表語從句和同位語從句中，用“should十動詞原形”表示虛擬語氣，而且should可以省略。
【解析】本向為“It is…time since+從句”句型，從句中謂語動詞用過去時，故選C。例如:It is many years since World War II was over.(自從第二次世界大戰結束盡來已經很多年了。)
