Countries with fragile economies and infrastructure may see tourism as a great opportunity for economic
and social development. However, tourism developments may not always be the answer to a country’s economic
woes and they can sometimes do more harm than good.
Every year, around 140 million people travel from an industrialized country to a developing one. Many will
be on a holiday that will have cost thousands of dollars. The money spent by holidaymakers is an important
source of income to the people living in the destination countries. However, often less than half the revenue
from the trip actually stays in that country—sometimes the ‘revenue leakage” can be as much as 80 percent.
In addition, moderate or mass tourism can put a huge strain on the developing country’s society and its
infrastructure such as roads, water, electricity and sewage treatment. That’s not to mention the environmental
impact. Take Jamaica for example. This Caribbean island paradise has been a mass tourist destination for many
years and its economy is partly dependent on tourism. Yet tourism has put a huge strain on the natural resources
of the country and is, in part, responsible for pollution, loss of animal and plant species, coral reef destruction,
and erosion of beaches.
The local community suffers from loss of natural public beaches, water shortages, and a significant amount
of the food used by the hotels is imported rather being purchased from local farms. A lot of the hotels are gated
from the rest of the community because of high crime rates, but in some ways this further isolates the tourists
from the local population—other than those employed as staff at the resorts.

(D) Tourism to a great extent is responsible for the coral reef destruction and deforestation.
43.【題組】43. What is the main idea of this passage?

Are organically grown foods the best food choices? The advantages claimed for such foods over
conventionally grown and marketed food products are now being debated. Advocates of organic foods -- a term
whose meaning varies greatly -- frequently proclaim that such products are safer and more nutritious than others.
The growing interest of consumers in the safety and nutritional quality of the typical North American diet is a
welcome development. However, much of this interest has been sparked by sweeping claims that the food supply is
unsafe or inadequate in meeting nutritional needs. Although most of these claims are not supported by scientific
evidence, the preponderance of written material advancing such claims makes it difficult for the general public to
separate fact from fiction.
As a result, claims that eating a diet consisting entirely of organically grown foods prevents or cures disease
or provides other benefits to health have become widely publicized and form the basis for folklore. Almost daily
the public is besieged by claims for "no-aging" diets, new vitamins, and other wonder foods. There are numerous
unsubstantiated reports that natural vitamins are superior to synthetic ones, that fertilized eggs are nutritionally
superior to unfertilized eggs, that untreated grains are better than fumigated grains, and the like.
One thing that most organically grown food products seem to have in common is that they cost more than
conventionally grown foods. But in many cases consumers are misled if they believe organic foods can maintain
health and provide better nutritional quality than conventionally grown foods. So there is real cause for concern if
consumers, particularly those with limited incomes, distrust the regular food supply and buy only expensive
organic foods instead.
【題組】46. In the first paragraph, the word "others" refers to __________.
(C) organic foods
(D) conventional food products
47.【題組】47. The "welcome development" mentioned in the first paragraph is an increase in _______________.
(A) interest in food safety and nutrition among North Americans
(B) the nutritional quality of the typical North American diet
(C) the amount of healthy food grown in North America
(D) the number of consumers in North America
48.【題組】48. The author implies that there is cause for concern if consumers with limited incomes buy organic foods
instead of conventionally grown foods because _______________.
(A) organic foods can be more expensive but are often no better than conventionally grown foods
(B) many organic foods are actually less nutritious than similar conventionally grown foods
(C) conventionally grown foods are more readily available than organic food
(D) too many farmers will stop using conventional methods to grow food crops
49.【題組】49. According to the last paragraph, consumers who believe that organic foods are better than conventionally
grown foods are often _____________.
