41.五、閱讀測驗 第一篇: 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.
【題組】41. What will be the best title for this passage?
(A) How to Run a Tourist Shop

(B) The local people in the community have barely benefited from the booming tourism.
(C) Every year, people in the developing countries flooded to the industrialized countries for sightseeing.
(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?
(A) Tourism is always beneficiary to the destination country.
(B) Tourism developments can cause more harm than good to the destination country.
(C) The holidaymakers spent all their money on the protection of the forest.
(D) The natural environment is not harmed by the intrusive tourists.

44.【題組】44. What does “put a huge strain” mean?
(A) To invest lots of money
(B) To give great pressure
(C) To cause misfortune
(D) To arouse great interests

46.第二篇: 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 __________.
(A) advantages
(B) advocates

(D) the number of consumers in North America

(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
