    Research is now starting to reveal some puzzling ways in which music influences us. Why, for instance, are relaxing or uplifting effects sometimes only fully experienced after listening? Does a change of tempo in a sound track, or even silence itself, have a delayed impact on nervous system? Dr. Luciano Bernardi measured the heart rates, breathing rates, and blood pressure of 24 men as they listened to sections of slow and fast classical music, techno, rap, and more. To Bernardi’s surprise, bodily functions only drop significantly when the music slowed down or ended—or when he inserted an unexpected two-minute pause into each track. This delayed response occurred whatever music the subjectslistened to, or was most noticeable during gaps in slower music. 
    According to Bernardi, listening to music involves some focus of attention, and it’s only when that focus ends that the body fully relaxes. Bernardi claims we could tackle physical and mental stress by creating our own music, alternating between fast and slow rhythms, creating our own music to reduce stress and anxiety. It may not be what we listen to, but how we listen to it that turns music into therapy. 

【題組】42.What does the word “subjects” in paragraph one refer to?
(A) fast and slow music
(B) Dr. Bernardi’s research team
(C) 24 men
(D) classic, techno, and rap

43.【題組】43 According to the article, what was the result of Dr. Bernardi’s research?
(A) People feel totally relaxed while they listen to music.
(B) People feel relaxed when the music slowed down.
(C) People feel focused when they listen to fast music such as rap.
(D) People feel focused after the music ends.

44.【題組】44 What would be the most suitable title for this article?
(A) Puzzling Music
(B) The Tempo of Music
(C) Creating Our Own Music
(D) Music as Therapy

45.【題組】45 Which of the following is NOT how Dr. Bernardi found out the way in which people responded to music in his research?
(A) He kept track of people’s heart rates and breathing rates.
(B) He used different types of music.
(C) He measured the muscle response to see if people were relaxed.
(D) He added a pause in the middle of the sound track to see if people were relaxed.

46.【題組】46 What does Dr. Bernardi’s research imply?
(A) To concentrate, we could listen to music when we study.
(B) We should add pauses in the sound track to help us stay focused.
(C) Slow music helps us relax, so we should listen to classic music.
(D) Listening to music, fast and slow, can help us deal with stress.

47.    The aboriginal people of Australia have always made the land important in their arts. When settlers from Europe came to Australia in the 18th and 19 th centuries, they claimed that the land was owned by no one, but, as the art works of the indigenous show, the land has always given the aboriginal people a sense of mutual belonging: they belong to the land and the land belongs to them. Traditional “dreamtime”  art reflects the creation myths and migration legends of ancestral beings across difficult terrain. Paintings done on bark often show a bird’s eye view of a familiar landscape, a river, or a campsite. Stencil paintings on rocks mark important places on tribal journeys. And the colors for paintings originally came from clay ochre mined from the earth and wood ash. Even though watercolors and oil paints may now be used, works by contemporary aboriginal artists still show the close relation of the indigenous people to the land they have lived on for millennia.

(A) mythic stories from the ancient past.
(B) experiences of hard life in the city.

(A) how aboriginal art has been modernized.
