26.In Japan, two more children have killed themselves after being bullied at school. Five children have 26 their own lives since August. A teacher has also been found hanged in a forest after he was 27 for his response to a bullying case in his school. Both of the children who killed themselves this weekend had been bullied. A twelve-year-old girl jumped to her 28 from a high building after her classmates laughed at her for being short. A fourteen-year-old boy hanged himself after his classmates forced him to give them money. It’s not new of course. Japan’s schools have long had a problem 29 bullying. After the suicides of five young children in less than four months, there’s more 30 being paid to the problem, but no one can agree what to do about it. Suicide in Japan is not just seen as an easy way out. Traditionally, it was regarded 31 a responsible way to deal with a problem when 32 with no other option. But last week, several schoolchildren wrote to the Education Minister 33 to kill themselves because no one would help them. He responded by urging students not to write to him, but 34 to try find people they could talk to about their difficulties. It’s awkward. Some fear publicizing such cases makes it more 35 that others will try to copy them. Others, though, say the failures in the system need to be exposed.

36.In the United States, many manufactured goods include the words “Made in China.” But one small company in the American state of Georgia is making traditional Chinese chopsticks—and sending them to China. Chopsticks are sticks used in some Asian countries to eat food. They are often made out of wood, but can also be made of plastic. 36 Several hundred Chinese manufacturers produce about sixty-three billion pairs of chopsticks a year. However, those manufacturers need more wood. This small company in the American city of Americus, Georgia has recognized the need of the Chinese manufacturers. 37 Korean-American Jae Lee is the president of Georgia Chopsticks. He says that about one-third of the world’s population uses chopsticks and hence the world market for chopsticks is huge. 38 In central Georgia, sweet gum and poplar trees grow in large numbers. 39 This is because the wood is not firm and has a nice color. Unlike many Asian chopsticks, these Georgia-made chopsticks do not need to be lightened with chemicals and bleach. 40 Suddenly, there’s a huge nation, the fastest growing in the world, which finances part of American people’s national debt, and here Americans are making their basic products and shipping it to them, like they’ve done for Americans for years. It’s just kind of a reverse.

41.<1> The ancient Italian city Pompeii was founded around 600 B.C., and later became a Roman colony in 80 B.C. It was located extremely near the volcano Vesuvius; however, people were not afraid, nor were they worried. There were warning signals before the eruption, but the inhabitants of the city were still caught by surprise. In 79 A.D., Vesuvius erupted, and it projected plenty of ashes and toxic gas into the atmosphere, killing many people. The eruption lasted for one day, and consequently changed the course of the local rivers and raised the sea beach. After this horrible incident, Pompeii was not an attractive or peaceful city any longer; tragically, it was transformed into a tomb for thousands of victims. It was not until the eighteenth century that Pompeii was rediscovered. Thanks to the ashes, several buildings, temples, and wall paintings were preserved. As a result, historians have a rare opportunity to understand the everyday life of the ancient Roman society. Unexpectedly, the volcanic eruption turns out to be an exceptional tourist spot; millions of interested tourists visit the ruined city every year.
【題組】41. According to this passage, what aspect about Pompeii is NOT mentioned?
(A) The cause of the tragedy.
(B) The location of Pompeii.
(C) The year of the volcanic eruption.
(D) The food of people living in Pompeii.
42.【題組】42. What can we infer from the passage?
(A) Everything in Pompeii remained the same after the eruption.
(B) Only a few people got hurt in the tragedy.
(C) Historians found nothing in the city.
(D) The destroyed city still attracts people.
43.【題組】43. Which of the following words is closest in meaning to the word “inhabitants” in the passage?
(A) optimists
(B) servants
(C) citizens
(D) scholars
44.<2> Medicine today can be divided into three branches. First, the “scientific medicine” is found by doctors by observing illnesses and the human body reaction. Because of this, they figure out what treatments may work. This kind of approach is successful, but it fails to effectively cure many patients. Another kind of medicine is called “natural cures.” By tasting various herbs, ill-educated people find out the helpful herbs to cure people. They keep trying until they discover the appropriate solution. Approaches like this are a huge success long before the appearance of scientific medicine. The last kind of medicine is the “faith healing.” By means of touching, casting a spell, or making a charm, people are cured. In some healing shrines held by certain religious groups, resting, sufficient sleep, and healthy food are all included. Meditation and prayers work, too. This approach is especially effective for people with depression and bodily fatigue.
【題組】44. What is the author’s primary purpose of this passage?
(A) The description of distinct types of medicine.
(B) The comparison of people with different educational backgrounds.
(C) The importance of religious beliefs.
(D) The crucial role of medicine in health care.
45.【題組】45. What does the pronoun “They” in line 6 refer to?
(A) Patients
(B) Ill-educated people
(C) Helpful herbs
(D) Scientific medicine
46.<3> Many superstitious people are afraid of black cats. They believe that these cats have a strange power. If a black cat crosses their path, they think they will have bad luck. Black cats haven’t always had such a bad reputation. Long ago, the Egyptians thought black cats were holy animals. They even worshipped them. Pasht was an Egyptian goddess who had a woman’s body and a cat’s head. Because the Egyptians had so much respect for black cats, they often buried the sacred creatures with great ceremony. Mummies of cats have often been found in ancient cemetery ruins. To keep the cats company after they died, mice were sometimes buried beside them. Feelings about black cats have always been strong. People have thought they were either very good or very bad. The people of Europe in the Middle Ages believed black cats were the evil friends of witches and the devil. Witches were said to have the power to change themselves into black cats. People believed that you could not tell whether a black cat was just a cat or whether it was a witch disguising herself as she plotted some evil scheme. The brain of a black cat was thought to be the main ingredient in a witch’s brew or stew. Unlike their ancestors in the Middle Ages, the English today consider black cats to be good luck charms. Fishermen’s wives often keep a black cat around so that their husbands will be protected when they are out at sea.
【題組】46. Which of the following statements is NOT TRUE?
(A) The Egyptians in ancient time didn’t just make mummies of human beings.
(B) The Egyptians respected black cats so much that they often buried them with great ceremony.
(C) European people used to hate the black cats so much that they cooked with their little brains.
(D) Fishermen’s wives keep black cats around for the sake of protecting their husband.
47.【題組】47. Which of the following is NOT related to “disguising” in the second paragraph?
(A) make-up
(B) trick
(C) costume
(D) license
48.<4> One afternoon, a big wolf waited in a dark forest for a little girl to come along, carrying a basket of food to her grandmother. Finally, a little girl carrying a basket of food did come along. “Are you carrying that basket to your grandmother?” asked the wolf. The little girl said yes, she was. The wolf kept on asking her where her grandmother lived, and the little girl told him and he soon disappeared into the wood. When the little girl opened the door of her grandmother’s house, she saw somebody in bed with a nightcap and nightgown on. She stopped going nearer to the bed when she saw that it was not her grandmother but the wolf! Even in a nightcap a wolf does not look any more like your grandmother than the Metro-Goldwyn lion looks like Calvin Coolidge. So the little girl took an automatic out of her basket and shot the wolf dead. Moral: It is not so easy to fool little girls nowadays as it used to be.
