Whale watching in Kona is a welcome activity all year long because the water is
usually calm, and the ocean gets very deep right offshore, so access to the whales may take
only minutes. If you are here especially in the winter, there are many whale watch
cruises running during Humpback whale season, offering a wide range of boats, activities,
education and facilities. Many have a hydrophone on board, which is dropped under
water when the whales are near, allowing you to hear the haunting Humpback songs of the
deep. Some cruise operators are professional marine scientists specializing in whale
research. The rest of the year, the cruise choices are much slimmer but the whales
certainly aren’t. For year-round whale watching excursions, check with Captain Dan
McSweeney at 322-0028. 【題組】 46. Which of the following is TRUE?

51. New Zealand has given the go-ahead for an application to insert human genes into
cows in the hope they can produce medicines in their milk. A state-funded agricultural
research organization believes milk from the genetically modified cows may be used to
cure diseases. Approval for the project in dispute came from the Environmental Risk
Management Authority (ERMA) even after a long inquiry in which it received 863
submissions, only seven of them in favor.
The Green Party, which is strongly opposed to genetic engineering of animals and
crops, deplored the decision, while scientists hailed it as paving the way for a
biotechnology breakthrough in New Zealand, which is one of the world’s biggest
producers and exporters of dairy products and other foods. ERMA chief executive Bas
Walker said potential benefits of the experiments outweighed the risks.
Genes from goats, pigs, sheep and mice can also be put into cattle on condition of
ERMA’s approval for the project which must be carried out on a secure farm. ERMA said
because the experiments will be done on a restricted farm, approval did not conflict with
New Zealand’s suspension of the general release into the environment of genetically
modified plants, animals and microorganisms, which the 【題組】51. What does New Zealand government think of this project?

(B) The government adopts a wait-and-see attitude.

(A) The purpose of this project is to produce milk to cure some diseases by putting
human genes in the cows experimented.
(B) All the experiments will be conducted only on a specific farm.

(D) ERMA is the institute that is in charge of this scientific research.
56. Some teenagers become overloaded with stress. When it happens, inadequately
managed stress can lead to social withdrawal, aggression, physical illness, or drug and/or
alcohol use. When we perceive a situation as difficult or painful, changes occur in our
minds and bodies to prepare us to react to danger. As a natural physical mechanism, this
“fight or flight response” includes faster heart and breathing rate, upset stomach, a sense of
dread and/or a desire to escape. As soon as we decide that a situation is no longer
dangerous, a “relaxation response” occurs to help us relax and calm down, which includes
decreased heart and breathing rate and a sense of well being. Teenagers that develop
“relaxation responses” and other stress management skills feel less helpless and have more
choices when dealing with stress.
To handle stress well, we should first of all exercise and eat regularly, and avoid
excess caffeine intake which causes feelings of anxiety and disturbance. Besides, setting
small goals and breaking tasks into smaller attainable chunks may help lower anxiety.
After a short-term goal is achieved, we can schedule breaks and enjoyable activities, such
as music, art, sports, or socializing. Decreasing negative self talk and challenging
negative thoughts about ourselves with positive thoughts are ways to enhance mental
health. For example, “My life will never get better” can be transformed into “I may feel
hopeless now, but my life will probably get better if I work at it and get some help.”
Finally we should accept what we are and realize no one is perfect. If there are signs of
being overly stressed, we can always go to a consultation with an adolescent psychiatrist
or qualified mental health professional. 【題組】56. Which is the best title of this passage?
(A) Ways of Fighting Against Stress
(B) No One Is Perfect
(C) Doctors’ Advice on Mental Health
(D) What We Can Do to Escape Stress

(A) serves as a protection against the stress-induced danger
(B) always enhances our mental well-being
(C) will enable us to beat stress more effectively
(D) is an abnormal condition and must be cured in no time
