13.編號第 43 題至第 46 題,請依據下文文意,從四個選項中選出最合適者。 Debbie Walrod was an athletic young Californian, a former professional model, and a ballerina, until a rare blood infection resulted in her having both her legs and all of her fingers amputated. 43 Then, through a program called Canine Companions for Independence (CCI), Walrod was matched with Oregon, a service dog, and her life became charged with possibility once more. CCI was created in 1977 by Bonita Bergin, a teacher who specialized in helping students who were physically challenged because of injury or disease. Bergin knew that guide dogs had provided invaluable assistance to blind people. 44 Professional dog trainers were, for the most part, discouraging. However, Bergin did receive the support of health-care professionals who, up until that point, had been unable to do little more than commiserate with clients frustrated by their physical defects. Although she worked out her home with helpers who accepted little or no pay, training costs were high so monetary problems became an issue. 45 At the same time, Bergin found it impossible to train older dogs, but young Labradors and golden retrievers were fit to be trained. Within fifteen years of the creation of CCI, more than a dozen similar organizations were established. 46

17.編號第 47 題至第 50 題,請依據下文文意,從四個選項中選出最合適者。 At the beginning of the 16th century, laborers working near the Colosseum penetrated a buried building whose vaults were adorned with frescoes and stuccos. This was the Domus Aurea or Golden House, a huge palace built by the Emperor Nero over the remains of a building that had burned down. The Domus Aurea had burned in its turn and had been covered over by the baths of Trajan. The Domus Aurea galleries, which were thought to have been underground from the very beginning, were called “grottoes,” and their mural paintings of ornamental designs and mythological figures were called “grotesques.” The discovery of the grotesques was to have a profound influence on the artists of the Renaissance, who began to redecorate palaces with imitations of them. Raphael (1483-1520), one of the greatest, also drew inspiration from them when decorating the Logge in the Vatican palace. Even more important was the fact that the frescoes provided the first color illustrations of antiquity; the mural paintings of Pompeii and Herculaneum were not discovered until two centuries later.
