12.I feel that if there is, in this world, one person whom we can touch totally and unabashedly, we will never die of loneliness. One person! I don't say fifty, a hundred, a thousand. It does not matter who that person is, woman to woman, man to man, someone you can go to and who will listen. The problem is: although most of us can select the joy of intimacy, many people choose not to. Some believe that intimate relationships are risky. They believe that intimacy will hurt, and that it is going to make the greatest demands on you, bring out your deepest feelings, and make you feel miserable sometimes. Moreover, it seems that our modern society does not reinforce intimacy. One out of every four marriages ends in divorce. As George Leonard says, “we can orbit the earth, we can touch the moon, but this society has not devised a way for two people to live together in harmony for seven straight days without wanting to strangle each other." It is said that intimacy is out of date, but I would like to assert that intimacy is absolutely essential or we are all going to go mad. Go ahead and live in isolation, if you can. I believe that you can judge your level of mental health to the degree that you can form meaningful and lasting relationships.

(A) To avoid risky relationships

(A) Modern people are doomed to die of loneliness.

(D) A way has been devised for two people to live together in harmony.
14.【題組】44 According to the passage, why do many people choose not to have intimate relationships?
(A) Loneliness brings joy.
(B) Mental health is very important.
(C) Intimate relationships sometimes hurt.
(D) Modern society reinforces independence.

17.請依下文回答第 47-50 題 
Nigerians are the happiest people in the world. The World Values Survey found that almost 70 percent of Nigerians consider themselves very happy. Money certainly is not the reason that made Nigerians happy. Having tons of money is only a limited factor in happiness. __47__ Bill Gates, for example, is happy not because of his immense wealth but because everybody wants to be his friend. Money can certainly buy happiness, but its impact seems to drop once you can afford basic necessities. Of course, inflation makes the problem worse. __48__ Even when money does exert an influence, it is not the size of your paycheck that matters. __49__ The New York cabbie who has an efficient car may seem happy, but not as happy as the Ethiopian villager who has a more efficient cow than his/her neighbors. When you are living amid wealth and luxury, your desires tend to be greater. __50__ It should not be surprising, then, that Nigeria, Mexico, Venezuela and El Salvador rank the highest in happiness among the 65- plus countries surveyed.
