17.
The United States is awash in debt. Median household debt has risen to more than $100,000 from less than $60,000 in 1990, even as median incomes have increased only slightly. Much of the debt is held by workers who are building up loans on credit cards, or obtaining dubious mortgages in a bid to secure some fraction of the lifestyle of an upper class that keeps getting richer. This increase in debt has occurred as the gap between the rich and the poor has continued to widen and the visibility of coveted luxury goods on television and the Internet has continued to grow.
Some laud the democratization of credit, seeing its availability to wider swaths of the American population as broadening opportunity; some criticize it as the ruthless seduction by financial institutions of working people who will one day face bankruptcy because they will be unable to pay credit card bills and mortgages.
But this is much clear: the spread of debt is one of the most significant social phenomena in the United States today, allowing the less affluent to spend more than they have. As long as interest rates do not rise steeply, this will continue to happen.

(C)The spread of debt is a social phenomenon and can’t be changed.
(D)Opinions about heavy borrowing vary, but the spread of debt is likely to continue.
18.【題組】48 What does the sentence “The United States is awash in debt” mean?
(A)The United States’ national treasury is stuck with debts.
(B)Many people in the United States are cleansed of debt.
(C)Americans borrow so much money that they are washed away.
(D)Many people borrow so much that the US is like floating in a sea of debt.
19.【題組】49 Why are many workers building up loans on credit cards?
(A)They want to enjoy the lifestyle of the rich.
(B)They want to bridge the gap between the rich and the poor.
(C)They want to take part in the democratization of credit.
(D)They want to test their ability to pay.
20.【題組】50 On the last line of the last paragraph, what does “this” refer to?
