The three monkeys were first introduced __(44)__ Japan by a Buddhist monk from China in the 8th century A.D. In Japan, the three monkeys became associated with a __(45)__ god by the name of Vadjra. The monkeys are covering their ears, eyes, and mouth because of Vadjra’s command. There are also those who believe the monkeys __(46)__ foolish people. These people walk through life with their ears covered, in order not to hear; their mouths shut, so as not to speak; and their eyes hidden, so they would be __(47)__ to anything unpleasant. They choose not to get involved with anyone or anything. The final lesson from the three monkeys goes back to the god Vadjra.

54.Dissatisfaction with controlled composition and the paragraph-pattern approach, due to the belief that neither adequately engendered thought or its expression and to their perceived linearity and prescriptivism, paved the way for the process approach, another import from mainstream composition studies. This tradition __(54)__ the composing process as a recursive, exploratory and generative process __(55)__ ideas were discovered and meaning made. It was believed that guidance through and intervention in the process was preferable __(56)__ the imposition of organizational patterns or syntactic or lexical constraints, and __(57)__, where there was a need or desire to communicate, content would determine form so as to convey meaning successfully. The advent of the “process approach” __(58)__ research on composing that focused on the person (that is, the writer) and the process (that is, strategies) involved in writing. Many variables __(59)__ second language writers have been identified and addressed in the literature.

Children who live with dogs and cats are less likely to develop allergies to those 
animals later in life, but only if the pet is under the same roof while the child is still 
an infant, a new study suggests. Compared to babies born into cat-free homes, those 
who grew up with cats were roughly half as likely to be allergic to them as 
teenagers, the study found. Growing up around a dog reduced the risk of dog 
allergies by about the same amount for boys, but not for girls — a finding that 
mystified researchers. [ i ] 
Being exposed to pets anytime after the first year of life appeared to have no 
effect on allergy risk, however, which indicates that timing may be everything when 
it comes to preventing allergies. 
Though they can’t say for sure, the researchers suspect that early exposure to pet 
allergens and pet-related bacteria strengthens the immune system, accustoms the 
body to allergens, and helps the child build up a natural immunity. “Dirt is good,” 
says lead researcher Ganesa Wegienka, Ph.D., summing up the theory. “Your 
immune system, if it’s busy with exposures early on, stays away from the allergic 
immune profile.” [ ii ] 
This isn’t the first study to find that having a household pet may protect kids 
from allergies, but it is the first to follow children until they were 18 years old. 
Previous studies have had mixed results — some have even linked pet exposure 
during infancy to an increased risk of allergy — so it’s too early to recommend 
getting a dog or cat just to ward off allergies in your infant, says David Nash, M.D., 
clinical director of allergy and immunology at the Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh. 
“In the end, we’ll probably find out that there are periods of opportunity when 
exposure to allergens, for some people, is going to have a protective effect,” says Dr. 
Nash, who was not involved with the new study. “But we’re a long way from 
figuring out who it’s protective for and when that optimal period is.” [ iii ] 
By the same token, don’t give away your beloved family pet because you’re 
concerned the critter will provoke allergies. “I would not get rid of my dog if I was 
having a child,” says Wegienka, an epidemiologist in the department of public health 
sciences at Henry Ford Hospital, in Detroit. “There’s no evidence that you should get 
rid of a dog or a cat.” [ iv ]

69.Climate, more than any other single factor, determines the distribution of life on Earth. Climatic boundaries establish the limits within which organisms can survive. Plants, even more than animals, must be well adapted to climate in order to survive. They cannot move about or take shelter but must be equipped to endure whatever weather conditions are likely to occur. In the harsh conditions of the tundra, for example, low growing mosses, lichens, and a few flowering plants all bug the ground for shelter from icy winds. Animals, despite their ability to move about and find shelter, are just as much influenced by climate as plants are. Creatures such as the camel and the penguin are so highly specialized that they have an extremely limited distribution. Others, such as bears, are flexible enough to adapt to a broad range of climates. Ocean-dwelling organisms are just as sensitive to climatic changes—in this case temperature and salinity—as land animals. Reef corals can survive only in clear warm seawater. Certain foraminifers are so sensitive to changes in their environment that their presence can be taken as an index of sea temperature. Human beings are among the least specialized of an index of all animals and can live almost anywhere. Their clothes and their homes act as a sort of “miniature climate” that can be taken with them everywhere.
【題組】69. According to the passage, which of the following factors MOST influences where life is found on Earth?
(A) Climatic conditions.
(B) The length of days and nights.
(C) Ocean tides.
(D) Geographic boundaries.

70.【題組】70. According to the passage, plants on the tundra grow close to the ground
(A) to avoid being eaten by arctic animals.
(B) because fertilizer is not readily available.
(C) to minimize exposure to the cold.
(D) because unfrozen water supplies are very scarce.

71.【題組】71. According to the passage, which of the following can be found in the greatest number of different climate areas on Earth?
(A) Reef corals.
(B) Penguins.
(C) Bears.
(D) Camels.

72.【題組】72. It can be inferred from the passage that foraminifers are a
(A) kind of weather pattern.
(B) form of sea life.
(C) species of tundra plant.
(D) type of miniature penguin.

73.【題組】73. According to the passage, human beings can survive almost everywhere on Earth because
(A) they have developed advanced forms of transportation.
(B) they have learned how to process seawater for drinking.
(C) their body temperature can vary considerably.
(D) their shelters and clothing help them to adapt to the environment.

74.Languages seem to be converging to a smaller number, as languages like English seem to eat up regional ones. The three languages used the most by first language speakers today are Mandarin Chinese, English, and Spanish. English is being used more and more as the main language for business, science, and popular culture. Evidence suggests that the dominant languages are squeezing out the local tongues of various regions in the world. Linguists estimate that of the approximately 6,500 languages worldwide, about half are endangered or on the brink of extinction. According to some linguists, the estimated rate of language extinction is one lost in the world every two weeks. If this sounds like the world is losing a species, in a way it is. When a language is lost, meaning no living person can teach another, a world perspective is lost. Some foreign language expressions simply cannot be translated. Colloquial phrases are pleasant to the ear, not only because they are familiar, but also because they reflect a unique aspect of a culture. Aboriginal languages in Canada and other countries such as Australia have words that reflect a way of life that is connected closely to the Earth. There are fifty different words that mean “snow” in one Canadian native language, and in the Eastern Arrernte language of Central Australia, the word nyimpe translates to “the smell of rain.” Languages are much like living creatures that become endangered when numbers dwindle. Local natural disasters, war, and famine are some of the reasons languages slip through the cracks of history. The language that bore the different daughter languages for the Eskimo and Inuit was almost wiped out after World War II. The mother language, Proto-Eskimo Aleut, was under siege when the Aleut people were forced to leave their land. Fortunately, some Proto-Eskimo Aleut, which originated 6,000 to 8,000 years ago, is still spoken. Languages also become endangered when they are not passed on to children or when a metropolitan language dominates over others.
【題組】74. Which of the following sentence from the passage is the effect, rather than the cause?
(A) Languages seem to be converging to a smaller number.
(B) Languages like English seem to eat up regional ones.
(C) The three languages used the most by first language speakers today are Mandarin Chinese, English, and Spanish.
(D) The estimated rate of language extinction is one lost in the world every two weeks.
