  【解析】

  26. [F] damage

  解析:“Air pollution costs the global economy more than $5 trillion annually in welfare costs, with the most serious ______ occurring in the developing world”;由最高级限定“the most serious”可知此处为名词且内容应与前半句性质相同,联系句义选项[F]damage符合。

  27. [B] associated

  解析:“The figures include a number of costs ______ with air pollution”;此处选词需与介词with搭配,联系上下文,figures指代全球空气污染相关的花费数据,选项[B]associated符合句义。

  28. [M] sources

  解析:“Indoor pollution, which includes ______ like home heating and cooking,…”;由介词like可知home heating与cooking为空格处选词的举例,联系indoor pollution与home heating / cooking的关系,可知此处[M]sources符合。

  29. [D] constant

  解析:“…, has remained ______ over the past several decades despite advances in the area”;由despite可知空格处选词与后文advances成转折逻辑,且后文outdoor pollution部分描述的是污染趋势(have grown rapidly),联系动词remain的词义与常见搭配,选项[D]constant符合句义。

  30. [G] described

  解析:“Chris Murray ______ it as an ‘urgent call to action’”;空格处应为谓语动词,联系介词as的搭配及后文引用(an “urgent call to action”),可知此处应选[G]described。

  31. [E] control

  解析:“…the air we breathe, over which individuals have little ______”;由have little可知空格处选词应为不可数名词且能与从句提前的介词over搭配,联系上下文还原从句“have little ____ over the air we breathe”,可知选项[E]control符合句意。

  32. [H] equals

  解析:“…, where in some places lost labor income ______ nearly 1% of GDP”;联系上下文可知此句由“lost labor income”与“nearly 1% of GDP”之间的关系描述空气污染带来的损失之严重,选项[H]equals符合。

  33. [K] regularly

  解析:“where they ______ experience dangerous levels of outdoor air pollution”;空格处选词应为副词性,且此句依然在叙述发展中国家所面对的污染情况之严重,理解句义,选项[K]regularly符合。

  34. [I] exclusively

  解析:“But the problem is not limited ______ to the developing world”;联系上下文,可知此处转折句义指空气污染并不只是发展中国家的问题,选项[I]exclusively符合句义。

  35. [O] vehicles

  解析:“…, where diesel ______ have become more common in recent years, that number reaches in the tens of thousands”;联系前文可知句中that numbers指代过早死亡(premature death)的人数,而where从句描述的是这一人数上万(reaches tens of thousands)的背景/原因,联系diesel(柴油机)词义可知此处选项[O]vehicles符合。
