42.(1) Volunteers have always played a big role in American life. In the early colonies, people were expected to use their spare time for their communities. Benjamin Franklin put that idea into practice when he set up volunteer fire department for Philadelphia. Today, many small towns still depend on volunteers to fight fires. Volunteer work is as important as ever. It is estimated that one out of every four Americans does some kind of volunteer work. People take scout groups on camping trips. They spend weekends cleaning up town parks. They pick up litter along hiking trails. They visit the sick and the elderly. And those are only a few examples. But what do volunteers get out of their work besides the good feeling of having helped others? Most people usually can get valuable job experience and knowledge through volunteer work. Many volunteers can learn skills that help them to prepare for full-time jobs. Let’s say you work as a volunteer in the office of a hospital or a public radio station. You work on a computer and sort mail, and do fund raising on weekends and after school. And you do this for nothing. But when you look for paying jobs, the experience you gained as a volunteer may give you an edge over other job seekers. Of course, volunteer work may have nothing to do with the career you wish to follow. Does that mean there’s no benefit in it for you? Not at all! Sometimes, volunteer work can teach you a lot about yourself-and that is probably the greatest benefit of all. It can help you decide which things you do best. It can help you learn about certain kinds of work. It can help you learn to deal with people. Service to the community is important. And your future is important, too. Isn’t there something that you can volunteer to do right now? It’s time to get started!

45.(2) In 1986, the first online helping system was born. Two employees of Cornell University, Steve Worona, a computer engineer and Jerry Feist, a student counselor wanted to combine their skills to provide an advice service for all university students. The school has already had a campus computer network for students to search the university’s information. Based on the traditional newspaper “Agony Aunt” section, Feist asked Worona to help create an online page that students can ask for help in private. Like “Agony Aunt,” it has a fictional character as well, which is called “Uncle Ezra.” As Uncle Ezra, Feist counseled students with a variety of troubles like thinking about suicide, having relationship problems and suffering from loneliness or homesickness. By contrast, he also answered more light-hearted questions like “Why are hot dogs called hot dogs?” to make the page more fun. Since then Uncle Ezra has connected to the Internet, it is available for anyone around the world. Uncle Ezra receives about 300 questions a month, mainly from students, and answers between ten and twenty questions weekly. The replies to people in crisis are always answered by experts. It’s estimated that the website is visited by about 9,000 people monthly. The website has stored all the answered questions. Feist believes that the database is useful because most students have common problems. They might also find answers in the previous replies to people in the similar situation.

48.(3) American author Robert Courmier was born in Massachusetts in 1925. His book, The Chocolate War, is a popular novel among young adults. It explores the idea of thinking independently and doing what one believes is right, even if it is difficult, scary, or causes trouble with peers. In this story, Jerry, the main character, is a freshman at a high school that is dominated by a handful of bullies called the Vigils. They hold all the power and control the school culture. When they tell others what to do, most students obey. But when they insist that Jerry join them in selling chocolate to raise money for the school, he refuses. In Jerry’s words, this “disturbs the universe,” meaning that his protest creates an enormous conflict. At first, he is considered a hero. But the Vigils make his life miserable. His refusal to follow their command sets off several serious events throughout the school. These eventually result in Jerry being badly hurt. Although this book was first published in 1974, it remains popular with teens today. Perhaps this is because it addresses social issues and challenges common to most adolescents. It makes us think about the power of fear, and our need to be accepted by a peer group. It also touches upon how our social group can influence us, and the consequences of choosing to refuse.

(B) It explores the importance of independent thinking.
(C) It deals with the influence of social groups on us.
(D) It reminds teens of the consequences of choosing to refuse.
