Young and old converge on one key point: Overwhelming majorities of both groups said they believe it is harder for young people today to get started in life than it was for earlier generations. While younger people are somewhat more optimistic than their elders about the prospects for those starting out today, big majorities in both groups believe those "just getting started in life" face a tougher a good-paying job, starting a family, managing debt, and finding affordable housing.


年轻人和老年人在一个关键点上看法趋同:两个群体的绝大多数人都认为,和前几代人相比,现在的年轻人生活要起步是更加困难了。虽然年轻人对踏入人生后的前景比老年人更加乐观,但是两个群体中的绝大多数人都认为,“刚刚步入人生”的年轻人要面对比前几代人更艰难的拼搏才能取得标志性的成就,诸如确保一份高薪的工作,建立家庭,偿还债务,找到买得起的住房等等。

每日一题

Both young and old agree that          .

[A] good-paying jobs are less available

[B] the old made more life achievements

[C] housing loans today are easy to obtain

[D] getting established is harder for the young


解析:本题用来原文定位的细节信息为Both young and old agree,此细节出现在第五段首句:Young and old converge on one key point年轻人和老年人在一点上是有交集的,此话意味着两者都agree同意,冒号后面就是进一步的解释,overwhelming majorities of both groups said they believe it is harder for young people today to get started in life than it was for earlier generations.双方群体中的绝大多数人都说,现在的年轻人要在生活上起步,确实比早些年代的人要困难了。故选项D符合原文意思,为正确答案。
