14.Do you wear a mask? I'm not talking about a Halloween mask of the killer from Scream or anything. I'm talking about going out of your way to look different on the outside than how you feel on the inside. These masks can be made up of many different things: the way you dress, the way you act, and the people you hang out with. I used to wear many masks. I decided how I wanted to be perceived, and then did what I needed to do to get that image across, whether it was wearing certain clothes, or laughing at things that weren't funny, or hanging around with a certain group of people even if they weren't the ones I felt I had the most in common with. But at the end of the day, I couldn't change who I was. Wearing these masks just left me feeling more frustrated than ever that I wasn't the person I thought I should be. In fact the person I thought I should be didn't exist. I've finally stopped wearing masks, and realized it's a lot easier to breathe without doing it through a piece of plastic. The best part is to find that people actually like me for who I am, when I let my true colors show.

18.第 48 題至第 50 題為篇章結構,各題請依文意,從四個選項中選出最合適者,各題答案內容不 重複 While the appeal of a renewable, home-grown alternative to foreign oil has put ethanol front and center in US energy policy discussions, the fuel still faces critics who question its feasibility as a replacement for oil and its impact on the environment. Ethanol is an alcohol-based fuel generally made from the starch or sugars in crops like corn, barley, sugar cane, and sugar beets. Almost all of the ethanol produced in the United States comes from corn, while Brazil-the second-largest producer of ethanol-uses sugar cane. 48 Ethanol use has increased in the past decade. It is now available at nearly1,200 pumps in the States. 49 President Bush called in January 2007 for mandatory alternative fuel use to grow to 35 billion gallons by 2017. However, not all analysts think that ethanol is the answer to America's energy needs, despite increased ethanol use. While proponents stress ethanol's benefits for reducing dependence on fossil fuels, critics say that it takes a significant amount of “old" energy resources to produce it. Moreover, to support ethanol production, American government provides a 51–cent subsidy to refineries for every gallon of ethanol blended into gasoline. Critics say that government support has increased pressure on corn production, while driving up the cost of corn and diverting an increasing proportion of the corn crop for the fuel. 50 In Mexico, the price of tortillas, traditionally made with corn and a staple of the Mexican diet, tripled during the latter half of 2006 ,according to a recent Washington Post article, Another expert also expressed concern that the demand for sugar cane for ethanol could result in the destruction of the destruction of the Amazon rainforest.
