41.Professor Thomas Glass is an expert in public health, who has studied social responses to disasters for more than a
decade. When he was asked 41 disaster brings out the worst in people, he said the following. “The answer has to be
no. 42 , disasters tend to bring out the best in us. From an evolutionary point of view, it almost has to be this way. As
recent as our grandparents’ 43 and going back 150,000 years to the beginning of human kind, disasters were a dime
a dozen. Human beings survived ice ages, famine, attacks from rival groups, predation from animals, infection—and we
didn’t survive 44 we were strong or fast. We survived as a species because in 45 , we tended to be very
resourceful and cooperative. If it were the case that disaster brought out the worst in us, I don’t think we would be here.”

46.Robert Spring, a 19th century forger, was so good at his profession that he was able to make his living for 15 years
by selling false signatures of famous Americans. Spring was born in England in 1813 and arrived in Philadelphia in 1858
to open a bookstore. At first he prospered by selling his small but genuine collection of early US autographs. Discovering
his ability at copying handwriting, he began imitating signatures of George Washington and Benjamin Franklin and
writing them on the title pages of old books. To lessen the chance of detection, he sent his forgeries to England and
Canada for sale and circulation.
Forgers have a hard time selling their products. A forger can’t approach a respectable buyer but must deal with
people who don’t have much knowledge in the field. Forgers have many ways to make their work look real. For example,
they buy old books to use the aged paper of the title page, and they can treat paper and ink with chemicals.
In Spring’s time, right after the Civil War, Britain was still fond of the Southern states, so Spring invented a
respectable maiden lady known as Miss Fanny Jackson, the only daughter of General “Stonewall” Jackson. For several
years Miss Fanny’s financial problems forced her to sell a great number of letters and manuscripts belonging to her
famous father. Spring had to work very hard to satisfy the demand. All this activity, which did not prevent Spring from
dying in poverty, left sharp-eyed experts the difficult task of separating his forgeries from the originals.

47.【題組】47 Why do forgers usually have a good collection of old books?
(A) Old books are useful material for making forgeries. (B) They need to get knowledge from the books.
(C) Reading helps them to relax. (D) Collecting old books is a good hobby.
