  Most customer service provision is carried out by personal account managers based in local branches, together with __________ staff at company headquarters.

  1. aid

  2. support

  3. guidance

  4. backing




  (support or help, especially with money。

  查了朗文词典和剑桥词典,backing做形容词时只在朗文词典里有一种解释:backing singers



  support staff可以说是一种固定的用法,意思是支持人员,或者是后勤人员、运维人员,填入这个句子的空格处正好合适。

  这是《金融时报》词典的解释:Employees whose work is helping a company or organization to operate, for example technical or administrative workers


  21、争议的焦点可能在B和C之间,supplier 还是provider。

  supplier更侧重于提供某种产品(朗文:a company or person that provides a particular product)

  provider强调提供某种服务(朗文:a company or person that provides a service)

  联系这个空后面的banking serving,这里应该选择provider。

  23、network 相互关系(配合)的系统

  branch network 由分支机构构成的网络。


  28、cope with后接事 deal with可接人和事

  handle是及物动词,后面直接接人和事,相当于deal with

  31、loan application 贷款申请

  apply for loan 固定用法

  33、go through 仔细的查看,后面正好和customer service review搭配。

  driving force和customer base属于固定用法
