35.(二) The World Health Organization (WHO) kept its pandemic swine flu alert at the second highest level on June 5,but said that future changes would reflect how severe an outbreak was. The U.N. agency has been evaluating how to adjust its pandemic alert scale to reflect both the severity of the flu as well as its 36_spread around the world. This follows criticism that it may have caused unnecessary panic about the disease whose effects have been mainly mild_37_in Mexico, where it is known to have killed 103 people. The experts, meeting as WHO’s emergency committee, made recommendations on a number of factors to be taken into account to assess the severity of an epidemic. To date, the novel H1N1 strain, _38_swine flu, has infected 21,940 people in 69 countries, killing 125 of them, according to the WHO. Mexico, the United States and Canada have suffered the impact of the illness and a case was confirmed in Saudi Arabia for the first time. More than 13,000 cases have been detected in the U.S., with 27 deaths _39_,according to the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The WHO representative said this week that one idea was to add three severity notches to the highest marker of 6, so the overall level can reach the peak even if the flu’s effects remain moderate, and then be adjusted again later if the virus causes more serious health problems. WHO’s pandemic scale now remains at the second-highest level, phase 5 on a scale of 1 to 6, meaning a widespread infection is _40_. Production of seasonal influenza vaccines should also continue for now, as work proceeds on developing a vaccine against the new flu.

41.四、閱讀測驗 (一)Advertisement can be thought of ‘‘as the means of making known in order to buy or sell goods or services,,. Advertisement aims to increase people’s awareness and arouse interest. It tries to inform and to persuade. The media are all used to spread the message. The press offers a fairly cheap method, and magazines are used to reach special sections of the market. The cinema and commercial radio are useful for local market. Television, although more expensive, can be very effective. Public notices are fairly cheap and more permanent in their power of attraction. Other ways of increasing consumer interest are through exhibitions and trade fairs as well as direct mail advertisement. There can be no doubt that the growth in advertisement is one of the most striking features of the western world in this century. Many businesses such as those handling frozen foods, liquor, tobacco and medicines have been built up largely by advertisement. We might ask whether the cost of advertisement is paid for by the producer or by the customer. Since advertisement forms part of the cost of production, which has to be covered by the selling price, it is clear that it is the customer who pays for advertisement. However, if large scale advertisement leads to increased demand, production costs are reduced, and the customer pays less. It is difficult to measure exactly the influence of advertisement on sales. When the market is growing, advertisement helps to increase demand. When the market is shrinking, advertisement may prevent a bigger fall in sales than would occur without its support. What is clear is that businesses would not pay large sums for advertisement if they were not convinced of its value to them.
【題組】41. Advertisement is mainly paid for by_.
(A) the producer

(A) push the sale
(B) arouse suspicion
(C) deceive customers
(D) increase production
44.【題組】44. Advertisement can increase demand_.
(A) all the time
(B) in any circumstances
(C)in a growing market
(D) in a shrinking market

(A) businesses usually do not pay much for advertisement
(B) businessmen know well that advertisement could bring them more profits

46.(二) On October 17,1904,Italian American A. P. Giannini established Bank of Italy in San Francisco. During its development, Giannini,s bank survived several crises throughout the 20th century including a natural disaster and a major economic upheaval. One major rest for Giannini,s bank occurred in 1906,when a massive earthquake struck San Francisco, followed by a raging fire that destroyed much of the city.
