Although earthquakes can cause death and destruction through __37__ secondary effects as landslides, tsunamis, fires, and fault rupture, the greatest losses __38__ both lives and property resulted from the collapse of man-made surface and subsurface structures during the violent shaking of the ground.  Seismologists routinely gather considerable quantities of data to explain the characteristics of the recorded ground motion that take place during earthquakes.  Such knowledge is needed to predict ground motions in future earthquakes so that earthquake-resistant structures can be designed.

     The most effective way to reduce the destructiveness of earthquakes is to design and construct buildings and other structures capable of withstanding strong shaking.  When a site is proposed for the construction of an office building, for example, factors such as the geometry and frictional __39_ of a nearby fault line, the passage of seismic waves surrounding the building must be considered.

After the UFO sightings and the Roswell incident of 1947, U.S. Air Force General Nathan Twining undertook a study of the strange objects that were seemingly ___40_____ through the skies. This study group was given the code name Project Sign. Project Sign studied 147 cases; 135 cases could be explained, but 12 could not. The group decided that those 12 sightings were actually of ___41_____ from another planet. Air Force Chief of Staff General Vandenberg rejected the report. He said that the evidence gathered did not support such an astounding conclusion. Vandenberg’s rejection ruined ___42_____ at Project Sign, and the case officers were soon merely collecting and filing reports, and did very little investigative work. They felt they had done their best and that the brass had rejected it. 

In 1949, Project Sign became Project Grudge. Project Grudge took a different approach. The researchers opted to try to explain every UFO report no matter how fragmentary. In 1952, Project Grudge went public and was renamed Project Blue Book. However, after 12 years of investigation, the project found no compelling evidence that UFOs were either ____43____. or a threat to national security. 


(B)small devices

(B)powers of observation


III. Reading Comprehension

Dreams and prophesies aside, one of the greatest mysteries surrounding the Sphinx today is one with more practical implications: How much longer will this great statue survive? Much of it was already worn away ages ago, including the nose, parts of the cobra on the forehead, and the long beard that once extended from the chin. Currently, not only the natural elements, but also pollution from the nearby city of Cairo is taking the toll. In addition, past efforts to restore the statue have sometimes, ironically, done more harm than good. For example, faulty reconstruction methods using concrete instead of limestone caused changes in the proportions of the statue. More recent preservation plans are much more sophisticated, although sometimes still experimental. However, even if the Great Sphinx were to collapse tomorrow, even if it should eventually crumble or become covered again with the sands of time, the end of its physical presence would certainly not mean an end to the many mysteries that have surrounded it for so long. Indeed, the "enigma" of the Great Sphinx is likely to remain with us for many centuries to come.

【題組】44. Which of the following is the best title for the passage?
(A)The Location of the Sphinx.
(B)The Structure of the Sphinx.
(C)The Material of the Sphinx.
(D)The Mysterious Sphinx.

45.【題組】45. The underlined word "enigma" in the last line probably means _______.
(D)physical absence

Do you think you’re smarter than your parents and grandparents? According to James Flynn, a professor at a university in New Zealand, you are! Over the course of the last century, people who have taken IQ tests have gotten increasingly better scores — on average, three points better for every decade that has passed. This improvement is known as “the Flynn effect,” and scientists want to know what is behind it. 

IQ tests and other, similar tests are designed to measure general intelligence rather than knowledge. Flynn knew that intelligence is partly inherited from our parents and partly the result of our environment and experiences, but the improvement in test scores was happening too quickly to be explained by heredity. So what was happening in the 20th century that was helping people achieve higher scores on intelligence tests? 

Scientists have proposed several explanations for the Flynn effect. Some suggest that the improved test scores simply reflect an increased exposure to tests in general. Because we take so many tests, we learn test-taking techniques that help us perform better on any test. Others have pointed to better nutrition since it results in babies being born larger, healthier, and with more brain development than in the past. Another possible explanation is a change in educational styles, with teachers encouraging children to learn by discovering things for themselves rather than just memorizing information. This could prepare people to do the kind of problem solving that intelligence tests require. 

Flynn limited the possible explanations when he looked carefully at the test data and discovered that the improvement in scores was only on certain parts of the IQ test. Test-takers didn’t do better on the arithmetic or vocabulary sections of the test; they did better on sections that required a special kind of reasoning and problem solving. For example, one part of the test shows a set of abstract shapes, and test-takers must look for patterns and connections between them and decide which shape should be added to the set. According to Flynn, this visual intelligence improves as the amount of technology in our lives increases. Every time you play a computer game or figure out how to program a new cell phone, you are exercising exactly the kind of thinking and problem solving that helps you do well on one kind of intelligence test. So are you really smarter than your parents? In one very specific way, you may be.
