43.V. Reading comprehension
A. Many parents and teachers believe that war toys encourage
children to learn the incorrect values; that they can solve their
problems with violence. In the past two decades, sales of these
toys have increased enormously the world over. Among them,
actions figures, toy guns, and computer war games are the most

because it is not easy for the police to distinguish them from real
guns. Conversely, some experts disagree about the effects that

46.B. As you probably know, log structures are gaining popularity.
They are no longer just the simple country homes that we think
of the traditional log cabin. The log cabin is more than where
people rest their heads; it's where their hearts, minds, and spirit
lay claim to tranquility and rejuvenation. It is the rounded logs
that give people the feelings of a cozy, relaxing, and comfortable
Currently, it is quite convenient for people who want to
build a traditional log cabin on their own. They can buy a kit
with precut logs that fit together like pieces of jigsaw puzzle.
Before showing some slides of modern log houses, I’d like to
give you a little historical background on the subject.
Log cabins were first built in the late 1600s along the
Delaware River valley. The European immigrants who settled
there brought centuries’ old traditions of working with logs. And
in this heavily wooded area logs were the material in hand. Log
cabins were the most popular in the early 1800s with the settlers
who were moving west. They provided the answer to the
pioneer’s need for a safe and sturdy home that an ordinary
family could build quickly. They had dirt floors and sliding
boards for windows. But the log buildings that have probably
had most influence on modern architects are those of the
mountain retreats of wealthy New Yorkers. These country
houses which were popular in the early 1900s typify what’s
known as the Adoroundyx style. 【題組】46. In what class is the lecture presented?
