Passage 2（2020 •青岛市）根据短文内容，从选项中选出能填入文中空白处的最佳选项，选项中有一项为多余选项。
You've been learning words since you were a tiny baby. At first, you learned them only by hearing other people talk. Now that you're a reader, you have another way to learn words. What should you do when you come to a word and you think you don't know what it means? ___36___.
First sound it out. Then say it to yourself. ___37___. Sometimes you know a word in your head but you don't know what it looks like in print. So if you match up what you know and what you read - you have the word!
If this doesn't work, take the next step: look at the context — the other words and sentences around it. Read this sentence: When it rained, the dog looked for shelter in the doorway. ___38___. Rain and in the doorway might give you helpful information.
If the context doesn't help, look at the parts of the word. Does it have any parts you know? These can help you understand what it means. If you don't know the meaning of miner, try looking at parts of the word. You might know that a mine is a place underground where people get coal and other valuable things. A lot of times, -er at the end of a word means "a person who does something". So a miner might be someone who works in a mine.
Look it up
If the three steps above don't work, you can look it up.___40___ — either a book or online.
Nobody knows the meaning of every word, but good readers know how to understand words they don't know.
A. Use word parts
B. Look at the words
C. It might sound like a word you know
D You can find the word in a dictionary
E. Following some easy steps can help you

根据“look it up”及“either a book or online”可知此处是关于查单词的问题，D选项“find the word in a dictionary”符合，故选D。
