31.Generally there are two ways to name typhoons: the number-based convention and the list-based convention. Following the number-based convention, typhoons are coded with 31 types of numbers such as a 4-digit or a 6-digit code. For example, the 14th typhoon in 2003 can be labeled either as Typhoon 0314 or Typhoon 200314. The 32 of this convention, however, is that a number is hard to remember. The list-based convention, on the other hand, is based on the list of typhoon names compiled in advance by a committee, and is more widely used. At the very beginning, only 33 names were used because at that time typhoons were named after girlfriends or wives of the experts on the committee. In 1979, however, male names were also included because women protested against the original naming 34 for reasons of gender equality. In Asia, Western names were used until 2000 when the committee decided to use Asian names to 35 Asians’ awareness of typhoons. The names were chosen from a name pool 36 of 140 names, 10 each from the 14 members of the committee. Each country has its unique naming preferences. Korea and Japan 37 animal names and China likes names of gods such as Longwang (dragon king) and Fengshen (god of the wind). After the 140 names are all used in order, they will be 38 . But the names can be changed. If a member country suffers great damage from a certain typhoon, it can 39 that the name of the typhoon be deleted from the list at the annual committee meeting. For example, the names of Nabi by South Korea, and Longwang by China were 40 with other names in 2007. The deletion of both names was due to the severe damage caused by the typhoons bearing the names.

41.The kilt is a skirt traditionally worn by Scottish men. It is a tailored garment that is wrapped around the wearer’s body at the waist starting from one side, around the front and back and across the front again to the opposite side. The overlapping layers in front are called “aprons.” Usually, the kilt covers the body from the waist down to just above the knees. A properly made kilt should not be so loose that the wearer can easily twist the kilt around the body, nor should it be so tight that it causes bulging of the fabric where it is buckled. Underwear may be worn as one prefers. One of the most distinctive features of the kilt is the pattern of squares, or sett, it exhibits. The association of particular patterns with individual families can be traced back hundreds of years. Then in the Victorian era (19th century), weaving companies began to systematically record and formalize the system of setts for commercial purposes. Today there are also setts for States and Provinces, schools and universities, and general patterns that anybody can wear. The kilt can be worn with accessories. On the front apron, there is often a kilt pin, topped with a small decorative family symbol. A small knife can be worn with the kilt too. It typically comes in a very wide variety, from fairly plain to quite elaborate silver- and jewel-ornamented designs. The kilt can also be worn with a sporran, which is the Gaelic word for pouch or purse.
【題組】41. What’s the proper way of wearing the kilt?
(A) It should be worn with underwear underneath it.
(B) It should loosely fit on the body to be turned around.
(C) It should be long enough to cover the wearer’s knees.
(D) It should be wrapped across the front of the body two times.
42.【題組】42. Which of the following is a correct description about setts?
(A) They were once symbols for different Scottish families.
(B) They were established by the government for business purposes.
(C) They represented different States and Provinces in the 19th century.
(D) They used to come in one general pattern for all individuals and institutions.
43.【題組】43. Which of the following items is NOT typically worn with the kilt for decoration?
(A) A pin.
(B) A purse.
(C) A ruby apron.
(D) A silver knife.

45.Wesla Whitfield, a famous jazz singer, has a unique style and life story, so I decided to see one of her performances and interview her for my column. I went to a nightclub in New York and watched the stage lights go up. After the band played an introduction, Wesla Whitfield wheeled herself onstage in a wheelchair. As she sang, Whitfield’s voice was so powerful and soulful that everyone in the room forgot the wheelchair was even there. At 57, Whitfield is small and pretty, witty and humble, persistent and philosophical. Raised in California, Whitfield began performing in public at age 18, when she took a job as a singing waitress at a pizza parlor. After studying classical music in college, she moved to San Francisco and went on to sing with the San Francisco Opera Chorus. Walking home from rehearsal at age 29, she was caught in the midst of a random shooting that left her paralyzed from the waist down. I asked how she dealt with the realization that she’d never walk again, and she confessed that initially she didn’t want to face it. After a year of depression she tried to kill herself. She was then admitted to a hospital for treatment, where she was able to recover. Whitfield said she came to understand that the only thing she had lost in this misfortunate event was the ability to walk. She still possessed her most valuable asset—her mind. Pointing to her head, she said, “Everything important is in here. The only real disability in life is losing your mind.” When I asked if she was angry about what she had lost, she admitted to being frustrated occasionally, “especially when everybody’s dancing, because I love to dance. But when that happens I just remove myself so I can focus instead on what I can do.”

(C) Acquire a skill so that you can still be successful and famous.
(D) Try to sing whenever you feel upset and depressed.
49.Forks trace their origins back to the ancient Greeks. Forks at that time were fairly large with two tines that aided in the carving of meat in the kitchen. The tines prevented meat from twisting or moving during carving and allowed food to slide off more easily than it would with a knife. By the 7th century A.D., royal courts of the Middle East began to use forks at the table for dining. From the 10th through the 13th centuries, forks were fairly common among the wealthy in Byzantium. In the 11th century, a Byzantine wife brought forks to Italy; however, they were not widely adopted there until the 16th century. Then in 1533, forks were brought from Italy to France. The French were also slow to accept forks, for using them was thought to be awkward. In 1608, forks were brought to England by Thomas Coryate, who saw them during his travels in Italy. The English first ridiculed forks as being unnecessary. “Why should a person need a fork when God had given him hands?” they asked. Slowly, however, forks came to be adopted by the wealthy as a symbol of their social status. They were prized possessions made of expensive materials intended to impress guests. By the mid 1600s, eating with forks was considered fashionable among the wealthy British. Early table forks were modeled after kitchen forks, but small pieces of food often fell through the two tines or slipped off easily. In late 17th century France, larger forks with four curved tines were developed. The additional tines made diners less likely to drop food, and the curved tines served as a scoop so people did not have to constantly switch to a spoon while eating. By the early 19th century, four-tined forks had also been developed in Germany and England and slowly began to spread to America.
【題組】49. What is the passage mainly about?
(A) The different designs of forks.
(B) The spread of fork-aided cooking.
(C) The history of using forks for dining.
(D) The development of fork-related table manners.
50.【題組】50. By which route did the use of forks spread?
(A) Middle EastGreeceEnglandItalyFrance
(B) GreeceMiddle EastItalyFranceEngland
(C) GreeceMiddle EastFranceItalyGermany
(D) Middle EastFranceEnglandItalyGermany

(B) Wealthy British thought it awkward to use their hands to eat.
(C) Wealthy British gave special forks to the nobles as luxurious gifts.
(D) Wealthy British considered dining with forks a sign of social status.
52.【題組】52. Why were forks made into a curved shape?
(A) They could be used to scoop food as well.
(B) They looked more fashionable in this way.
(C) They were designed in this way for export to the US.
(D) They ensured the meat would not twist while being cut.
53.Animals are a favorite subject of many photographers. Cats, dogs, and other pets top the list, followed by zoo animals. However, because it’s hard to get them to sit still and “perform on command,” some professional photographers refuse to photograph pets. One way to get an appealing portrait of a cat or dog is to hold a biscuit or treat above the camera. The animal’s longing look toward the food will be captured by the camera, but the treat won’t appear in the picture because it’s out of the camera’s range. When you show the picture to your friends afterwards, they’ll be impressed by your pet’s loving expression. If you are using fast film, you can take some good, quick shots of a pet by simply snapping a picture right after calling its name. You’ll get a different expression from your pet using this technique. Depending on your pet’s mood, the picture will capture an interested, curious expression or possibly a look of annoyance, especially if you’ve awakened it from a nap. Taking pictures of zoo animals requires a little more patience. After all, you can’t wake up a lion! You may have to wait for a while until the animal does something interesting or moves into a position for you to get a good shot. When photographing zoo animals, don’t get too close to the cages, and never tap on the glass or throw things between the bars of a cage. Concentrate on shooting some good pictures, and always respect the animals you are photographing.
【題組】53. Why do some professional photographers NOT like to take pictures of pets?
(A) Pets may not follow orders.
(B) Pets don’t want to be bothered.
(C) Pets may not like photographers.
(D) Pets seldom change their expressions.
54.【題組】54. What is the use of a biscuit in taking pictures of a pet?
(A) To capture a cute look.
(B) To create a special atmosphere.
(C) To arouse the appetite of the pet.
(D) To keep the pet from looking at the camera.
55.【題組】55. What is the advantage of calling your pet’s name when taking a shot of it?
(A) To help your pet look its best.
(B) To make sure that your pet sits still.
(C) To keep your pet awake for a while.
(D) To catch a different expression of your pet.
56.【題組】56. In what way is photographing zoo animals different from photographing pets?
(A) You need to have fast film.
(B) You need special equipment.
(C) You need to stay close to the animals.
(D) You need more time to watch and wait.
