The best you could hope for, if you wanted new horizons, was to latch onto a skill or career that could take you out of there.

34. Garvey credits the book’s huge success and decades-long influence to the dual voices of its authors: “Strunk sounds teacherly, though he’s not without humor” as he lays down his views on grammar, while “White’s voice … is that of a writer, the practitioner of long experience whose sympathies favor the artistic side of the enterprise.” The book’s obsession with simplicity and directness is another reason, Garvey explains: It gives “the promise that careful, clear thinking and writing can occasionally touch truth; the promise of depth in simplicity and beauty in plainness.”

41.四、長篇閱讀(第 41−50 題) 說明:下列二篇文章共有 10 個問題,閱讀後請依文意與題意選出最恰當的選項,並將代號 標示在答案卡上。 The electricity generated by a power plant and delivered to your home by your local utility is called alternating current (AC) because it flows alternatively, first in one direction then in the opposite, completing 60 cycles every second. Batteries produce DC or direct current. From the power plant, current travels over high-voltage transmission lines to substations, where transformers reduce the voltage for distribution to local lines. Neighborhood transformers lower voltage to 120 and 240 volts for home delivery. Most homes built after World War II have three-wire electrical service, in which a neutral wire and two 120-volt hot wires provide 100 to 200 or more amps at both 120 and 240 volts. Older homes may still have two-wire service, in which one neutral and one hot wire deliver 30 to 60 amps at 120 volts only. Electrical service may be routed to a home through overhead wires running from the nearest utility pole to the service entrance head located high on one side of the house. Here the utility’s wires are spliced to the service entrance wires, which are usually encased in metal or plastic tubing, called conduit, or combined in a service entrance cable. From the service head, the wires pass through a meter, which records your electricity use, and into the main service panel, where current is split and distributed through branch circuits throughout the house. Alternatively, electric service may be routed underground to a home.

(A) To record the electricity use

46. Sara—like most kids—had always thought things like racing were harmless fun. In fact, speeding is a factor in one-third of all fatal car accidents involving teens and is just one of the dangerous driving behaviors kids regularly engage in. A 2007 study by the Allstate Foundation found that the majority of accidents involving teenage drivers are caused by driver error, speeding and the distractions of cell phones, texting, loud music and other teenage passengers. And while most kids have been told not to drink and drive, few parents remind their kids not to take part in other life-threatening behaviors. That’s because, in many cases, parents aren’t aware that this is a conversation they must be having. “Parents don’t have the facts they need to keep their teenagers safe,” says Sara’s dad, Ali Torabian. “After Sara’s accident I realized we had to have new rules.” He also went with Sara to a three-day conference in Chicago organized by Keep the Drive, a teen-led driving education program. There they learned that traffic accidents are the leading cause of death for American teenagers. Sixteen teenagers a day—nearly 6,000 each year—die that way, and hundreds of thousands of others are injured.
【題組】46.aWhich of the following might be the content of a paragraph right before the first paragraph?
(A) Sarah, a teenager, died in a fatal car accident.
(B) Sarah, a teenager, was killed by some drunk driver.
