Passage 1
        The butterfly effect is a hallmark of chaotic systems. Simple systems are described by linearequations 31 , for example, increasing a cause produces a proportional increase in an effect. 32 ,chaotic systems are described by nonlinear equations, which allow for subtler and more intricateinteractions. For example, the economy is nonlinear because a rise in interest rates does not automatically produce a corresponding change in consumer spending. Weather is nonlinear 33 a change in the wind speed in one location does not automatically produce a corresponding change in another location.
            34 their name, chaotic systems are not necessarily random. In fact, many chaotic systemshave a kind of underlying order that explains the general features of their behavior 35 details at any particular moment remain unpredictable. In a sense, many chaotic systems--like the weather--are "predictably unpredictable." Our understanding of chaotic systems is increasing at a tremendous rate, butmuch remains to be learned about them.

Passage 2
        Lighthouses are towers with strong lights that help mariners plot their position, inform them that land is near, and warn them of dangerous rocks and reefs. They are placed at prominent points on the coast and on islands, reefs, and sandbars.
        Every lighthouse has a distinctive pattern of light known as its characteristic. There are five basic characteristics: fixed, flashing, occulting, group flashing, and group occulting. A fixed signal is a steady beam. A flashing signal has periods of darkness longer than periods of light, while an occulting signal’s periods of light are longer. A group-flashing light gives off two or more flashes at regular intervals, and a group-occulting signal consists of a fixed light with two or more periods of darkness at regular intervals.
Some lighthouses use lights of different colors as well, and today, most lighthouses are also equipped with radio beacons. The three types of apparatus used to produce the signals are the catoptric, in which metal is used to reflect the light; the dioptric, in which glass is used; and the catadioptric, in which both glass and metal are used.
        In  the daytime, lighthouses can  usually be identified  by their structure alone. The most  typical structure is a tower tapering at the top, but some are shaped like pyramids, and others look like wooden houses sitting on high platforms. Still others are skeletal towers of steel. Where lighthouses might be confused in daylight, they can be distinguished by day-marker patterns—designs of checks and stripes painted in vivid colors on lighthouses walls.
        In the past, the job of lighthouse keeper was lonely and difficult, if somewhat romantic. Lighthouse keepers  put  in  hours  of  tedious  work  maintaining  the  lights.  Today,  lighthouses  are  almost  entirely automated with human supplying only occasional maintenance. Because of improvements in navigational technology,  the  importance  of  lighthouses  has  diminished.  There  are  only  about  340  functioning lighthouses in existence in the United States today, compared with about 1,500 in 1900, and there are only about 1,400 functioning lighthouses outside the United States. Some decommissioned lighthouses have been preserved as historical monuments.

【題組】46. Which of the following is NOT mentioned in the passage as one of the functions of lighthouses?
(A) To help sailors determine their location.
(B) To warn of danger from rocks and reefs.
(C) To notify sailors that bad weather is approaching.
(D) To indicate that land is near.

47.【題組】47. According to the passage, what kind of signal has long periods of light that are regularly broken by two or more periods of darkness?
(A) Group occulting.
(B) Flashing.
(C) Occulting.
(D) Group flashing.

(A) the weather is frequently bad
(B) the structures themselves cannot be easily seen by passing mariners
(C) there are not many lighthouses
(D) there are a number of lighthouses with similar structures
