41.▲ 閱讀下文,回答第 41 − 45 題 Coal remains a critical component of the world’s energy supply despite its image as a polluter. As an enemy of environmentalists, it creates so much pollution. In this case, coal still has the undeniable advantages of being widely available and easy to ship and burn. The biggest attraction is low cost, however. By many estimates, burning coal still costs about one-third as much as using renewable energy like wind or solar power. As a result, global demand for coal is expected to reach 8.9 billion metric tons by 2016. In addition to strong demand for thermal coal, which is burned in power plants, use of metallurgical coal or coking coal is also expected to double. For now, coal seems to be avoiding a serious potential impediment to its use: international treaties restricting greenhouse gas emissions. So far, such agreements to prevent climate change have been ineffective. In the long term, coal’s future depends on China and India, which rely heavily on coal for their electric power, and its prospects look bright mainly because it is cheaper than its competitors.

46.▲ 閱讀下文,回答第 46 − 50 題 In Chinese mythology, snakes are often associated with monsters. Some experts on Taoist customs and beliefs suggest that people put on some decorations with snake designs. Others recommend that people should buy orchids, tulips, and other yellow-colored flowers. These are helpful ways to begin 2013, the Year of the Snake, to attract some good luck. For some people, snakes have long been scary. One reason may be that unlike most other animals, they have no legs. Another is that some species are deadly poisonous. The other reason may be that they are silent creatures and can often attack without any warning. When people see snakes, they often scream, hoping to frighten them away. In fact, they are just wasting their time. Snakes cannot hear screams because they have no ears. Their eyesight is generally weak, too. However, they have a good sense of smell and can feel even the smallest vibrations made by walking animals. Some snakes can also detect heat so that they can hunt at night for small animals like mice and rabbits. Though they have no arms or legs, they can swallow their prey, alive and whole. Every animal has its strengths and weaknesses, and snakes are no exception. The best way to protect oneself against the bite of a poisonous snake begins long before seeing one. Before going hiking or picnicking, be sure to wear heavy shoes or boots. Avoid walking through high grass or over fallen trees. Stay on the hiking paths or in open fields. Whatever you do, don’t bother to scream. ˉ
