23.Passage 1 A group of scientists have found evidence that coffee beans can help reduce physical pain. However, they cautioned that since the study was not designed to test coffee’s influence on pain, the 23 come with many uncertainties. For starters, the researchers don’t know 24 coffee the coffee drinkers consumed before taking the tests. They also 25 that the coffee drinkers and abstainers were similar in all respects except for their consumption. Problems like these tend to undermine the importance of the findings.

30.Passage 1 
The word “Famine” in Ireland usually refers to the Great Famine of 1845-49, which killed about a million people and drove millions more into exile over the following two decades. Those who perished, as usual with famines, died more of disease than starvation. In fact 30 In most famines, there is enough food around the place. The problem lies in bringing the food and the hungry people together. In other words, famines are usually caused by people’s inability to buy food, not by its total absence. 31 The bug which blighted the potato crop year after year seems to have caused an absolute food shortage in the country. Some nationalists point angrily to the fact that food nevertheless went on being exported to Britain during the Famine. 32 But some historians claim that keeping this food in the country might not have made that much difference. 33 After all, Ireland at the time was supposed to be part of the United Kingdom and there was more than enough food in the UK as a whole.

【題組】 30.
(A) Ireland at that time was desperately overpopulated.
(B) the Famine was a natural, perhaps unavoidable disaster.
(C) famines are not generally caused by food shortages.
(D) the Irish people were far too dependent on a single crop.

(A) Whether you call this genocide or not depends on how you define the word.
(B) Whether this was so of the Great Famine depends on one’s point of view.
(C) Would they have done something similar if a famine had broken out in Kent?
(D) What makes that event unique is that it lasted longer than most other famines.

(A) There are poignant accounts of desperate men and women attacking food convoys and being beaten off by British soldiers.
(B) Even some high-placed Irish officials did not think so, although the event did stir up a hatred of the Irish at that time.
(C) You may come across the odd Famine graveyard in your travels, pits where people were buried together without coffins.
(D) It is hard to argue that the British relief operation was anything like adequate, even by standards of the time.

(A) They consider the Famine the death of many things besides a million people.
(B) They glimpse in the Famine a golden opportunity for a long-term restructuring of Ireland.
(C) They see it as a blessing in disguise—God’s own way of modernizing the Irish.
(D) They also say that more food was imported than exported during the Famine years.

34.Passage 2 
For much of the year, Bernd Heinrich spends his time at a cabin he built in a remote forest in western Maine. 34 , he says, “just a tree growing inside it.” An emeritus biology professor at the University of Vermont, Dr. Heinrich, 72, sees the New England forest as a living laboratory to study nature’s changes. Over the years he has translated his observations into 17 popular books on nature and the animal world, including ones on bumblebees, dung beetles and geese. 35 According to Dr. Heinrich, human death is becoming more and more divorced from nature.

(B) “The cabin was built with timber I gathered in the forest,”
(C) “The cabin has no indoor plumbing and no electricity,”
(D) “The cabin is equipped with all kinds of modern facilities,”

(A) Lately he has been studying how creatures die.
(B) Currently he has been thinking about the dying nature.
(C) Unfortunately, he has just divorced his wife.
(D) Recently human nature has preoccupied his study.

36.Passage 1
 The word laser was coined as an acronym for Light Amplification by the Stimulated Emission of Radiation. Ordinary light, from the Sun or a light bulb, is emitted spontaneously, when atoms or molecules get rid of excess energy by themselves, without any outside intervention. Simulated emission is different because it occurs when an atom or molecule holding onto excess energy has been stimulated to emit it as light. Albert Einstein was the first to suggest the existence of stimulated emission in a paper published in 1917. However, for many years, physicists thought that atoms and molecules always were much more likely to emit light spontaneously and that stimulated emission thus always would be much weaker. It was not until after the Second World War that physicists began trying to make stimulated emission dominate. They sought ways by which one atom or molecule could stimulate many others to emit light, amplifying it to much higher powers. The first to succeed was Charles H. Townes, then at Columbia University in New York. Instead of working with light, however, he worked with microwaves, which have a much longer wavelength, and built a device he called a “master,” for Microwave Amplification by the Stimulated Emission of Radiation. Although he thought of the key idea in 1951, the first master was not completed until a couple of years later. Before long, many other physicists were building masters and trying to discover how to produce stimulated emission at even shorter wavelengths. The key concepts for a laser emerged about 1957. Townes and Arthur Schawlow, then at Bell Telephone Laboratories, wrote a long paper outlining the conditions needed to amplify stimulated emission of visible light waves. At about the same time, similar ideas crystallized in the mind of Gordon Could, then a 37-year-old graduate student at Columbia, who wrote them down in a series of notebooks. Townes and Schawlow published their ideas in a scientific journal, Physical Review Letters, but Could filed a patent application. Three decades later, people still argue about who deserves the credit for the concept of the laser.

46.Passage 2
Life originated in the early seas less than a billion years after the Earth was formed. Yet another three billion years were to pass before the first plants and animals appeared on the continents. Life’s transition from the sea to the land was perhaps as much of an evolutionary challenge as was the genesis of life. What forms of life were able to make such a drastic change in lifestyle? The traditional view of the first terrestrial organisms is based on megafossils—relatively large specimens of essentially whole plants and animals. Vascular plants, related to modern seed plants and ferns, left the first comprehensive megafossil record. Because of this, it has been commonly assumed that the sequence of terrestrialization reflected the evolution of modern terrestrial ecosystems. In this view, primitive vascular plants first colonized the margins of continental waters, followed by animals that fed on the plants, and lastly by animals that preyed on the plant-eaters. Moreover, the megafossils suggest that terrestrial life appeared and diversified explosively near the boundary between the Silurian and the Devonian periods, a little more than 400 million years ago. Recently, however, paleontologists have been taking a closer look at the sediments below this Silurian Devonian geological boundary. It turns out that some fossils can be extracted from these sediments by putting the rocks in an acid bath. The technique has uncovered new evidence from sediments that were deposited near the shores of the ancient oceans—plant microfossils and microscopic pieces of small animals. In many instances the specimens are less than one-tenth of a millimeter in diameter. Although they were entombed in the rocks for hundreds of millions of years, many of the fossils consist of the organic remains of the organism. These newly discovered fossils have not only revealed the existence of previously unknown organisms, but have also pushed back these dates for the invasion of land by multi-cellular organisms. Our views about the nature of the early plant and animal communities are now being revised. And with those revisions come new speculations about the first terrestrial life-forms.

(A) Bacteria
(B) Meat-eating animals

(D) Assumptions about the locations of ancient seas were changed.

49.【題組】49. With which of the following conclusions would the author probably agree?
(A) The evolution of terrestrial life was as complicated as the origin of life itself.
(B) The discovery of microfossils supports the traditional view of how terrestrial life evolved.
(C) New species have appeared at the same rate over the course of the last 400 million years.
(D) The technology used by paleontologists is too primitive to make accurate determinations about ages of fossils.
