The curvature of a circle is defined to be the reciprocal of the radius of the circle.
A. The curvature of a circle with circumference 35π
B. The curvature of a circle with circumference 36π
曲率是半径的倒数， --> 曲率和半径是反比关系， 半径和周长是正比关系， 所以曲率和周长是反比关系。周长越大，曲率越小~
题中 A 的周长小，所以曲率大
1.antagonistic /æn,tæɡə’nɪstɪk/ adj. 敌对的;对抗性的
【例句】He was antagonistic to the government's reforms. 他对政府的改革持对抗态度。
2.skeptical /‘skɛptɪkl/ adj. 怀疑性的,好怀疑的

【例句】Moderate exercise will benefit you. 适当的锻炼对你有好处。
4.aggravate /‘æɡrəvet/ vt. 使恶化, 使更严重
【解词】agg-=强调;grav-=heavy(如gravity 重力)。因此aggravate 表示“使恶化”。
【例句】If he aggravates me any more I shall punish him. 如果他再惹我生气,我就要惩罚他。
The following is a letter to the editor of the Atticus City newspaper
"Former Mayor Durant owes an apology to the city of Atticus. Both the damage to the River Bridge, which connects Atticus to Hartley, and the traffic problems we have long experienced on the bridge were actually caused 20 years ago by Durant. After all, he is the one who approved the construction of the bridge. If he had approved a wider and better-designed bridge, on which approximately the same amount of public money would have been spent, none of the damage or problems would have occurred. Instead, the River Bridge has deteriorated far more rapidly over the past 20 years than has the much longer Derby Bridge up the river. Even though the winters have been severe in the past several years, this is no excuse for the negligence and wastefulness of Durant."
The author of this letter concludes in his or her argument that former Mayor Durant should apologize to the city of Atticus because he is at fault for damage that has occurred over a twenty-year time span to the River Bridge. The author also blames Mayor Durant for long-time traffic problems on the bridge, stating that Durant actually caused these problems twenty years before because he approved the construction of the bridge and did not approve a wider and better-designed bridge. The arguer may have a personal vendetta against Mayor Durant but the elements stated in the argument do not support such an accusation.
