The search for alien worlds orbiting other stars — exoplanets — has gone on a long time. Quite a few were thought to have been seen, but they were on the remote edge of what the technology could do and were later shown to be 26 positives. Then in 1995 came the big announcement: A planet had been found orbiting the star 51 Pegasi. The star is similar to the Sun, but the planet was a shock: it circled around the star in just 4.2 days, a 27 smaller and shorter orbit than had been thought possible. In 2009, Kepler, an observatory designed to stare at 150,000 stars simultaneously, was launched into space, carefully measuring their starlight. If a planet orbits the star, the planet will cross the face of its star, and then the starlight will darken periodically, revealing the 28 of the exoplanet. Kepler has found more than 1,000 confirmed exoplanets 29 thousands more candidates still awaiting confirmation. When will we find 30 Earth? The answer is: We may have already. And the statistics clearly show we’ll find plenty more in the next few years.

Defense mechanisms are a mental strategy developed by ourselves to protect against anxiety. Defense mechanisms are thought to safeguard the mind against feelings and thoughts that are too difficult for the conscious mind to cope with, serving as a way of distancing ourselves from a full awareness of 31 thoughts and feelings. For example, if you are faced with a particularly difficult task, your mind may choose to forget your 32 in order to avoid the dreaded assignment. Likewise, those who just underwent a terrible accident will tend to 33 the horrible memory as a way of mentally protecting themselves. Defense mechanisms allow us to function 34 , and such a mental protection is often expressed through some typical behaviors. Perhaps the simplest defense mechanism is denial — refusing to 35 something that has happened. Denial, like many other defense mechanisms, is especially clear in little children. A child breaks a vase in full view of everybody and 36 exclaims, “I didn’t do it!” In adults, denial is common when people 37 the sudden and unexpected loss of a loved one. A common 38 is, “It can’t be true!” Psychiatrists who work in emergency rooms of major hospitals see this so often that they expect it. In fact, accepting and acknowledging the emotions are part of the practice of healthy self-defense mechanism. Instead of looking for excuses, we can be more introspective by saying that we are 39 of ourselves for not achieving our target. Instead of pretending not to hear the criticism that is less 40 , we can frankly say, “I feel sad and hurt to hear comments that you have to say.” In psychoanalytic therapy, the goal may be to help the client uncover these unconscious defense mechanisms and find better, healthier ways of coping with anxiety and distress

 IKEA follows the focused cost leadership strategy. Young buyers in search of stylish and fashionable furniture and household accessories at a low cost are IKEA’s targeted market segment. For these customers, the firm offers home furnishings that combine good design, functionality and acceptable quality at low prices. According to the firm, low cost is always a priority. This applies to every phase of their activities. For example, instead of relying primarily on third party manufacturers, the firm’s engineers design low-cost, modular furniture ready for assembly by customers. The IKEA Concept relies on customers to choose, collect, transport and assemble IKEA products themselves. Customer involvement contributes to IKEA low prices. That is the idea behind: “You do your part. We do our part. Together we save money.” Secondly, IKEA positions its products in domestic settings. IKEA’s customers can view different furniture combinations (complete with sofas, chairs, tables, and so forth) in a single setting, which reduces the need for decorators and designers who help the customer imagine how a furniture arrangement would look when placed in the customer’s home. This approach requires fewer sales personnel, allowing IKEA to keep its costs low. IKEA also offers some differentiated features that appeal to its target customers, including in-store playrooms for children, wheelchairs for customer use and extended hours. Stores outside those in the home country have “Sweden Shops” that sell Swedish specialties, such as herring, crisp bread, Swedish caviar and gingerbread biscuits. IKEA believes that these services and products are uniquely associated with the needs of its customers, who are young, not wealthy, likely to have children, and because they work for a living, need to shop outside of regular hours. Through the Sweden shops, IKEA offers some unique and different features with its low-cost products.

【題組】41. According to this article, what is the focus of IKEA’s marketing strategy?

43.【題組】43. What does the underlined slogan “You do your part.” refer to?
(A) Customers have to decide which color and pattern they want to paint on the furniture.
(B) Customers have to put together the many pieces of their chosen furniture by themselves.
(C) Customers have to imagine what their houses will look like with their chosen furniture.
(D) Customers have to find the information of every item in the store by themselves.

44.【題組】44. According to this article, why does IKEA sell Swedish food in the stores?

(D) IKEA wants to introduce the culture of its country to foreigners.

45.第 45 至 48 題為題組 
Does an organic strawberry contain more vitamin C than a conventional one? Maybe — or maybe not. Stanford University scientists have weighed in on the “maybe not” side of the debate after an extensive examination of four decades of research comparing organic and conventional foods. Fruits and vegetables labeled organic were, on average, no more nutritious than their conventional counterparts, which tend to be far less expensive. Another finding of the study was that organic produce, over all, contained higher levels of phosphorus than conventional produce. But because almost everyone gets adequate phosphorus from a wide variety of foods, they said, the higher levels in the organic produce are unlikely to confer any health benefit. All in all, they didn’t find any nutrition advantage in organic food. The study’s conclusions about pesticides, however, did seem likely to please organic food customers. Over all, the Stanford researchers concluded that 38 percent of conventional produce tested in the studies contained detectable residues, compared with 7 percent for the organic produce. They also noted a couple of studies that showed that children who ate organic produce had fewer pesticide traces in their urine. Similarly, organic meat contained considerably lower levels of antibiotic-resistant bacteria than conventionally raised animals did, though bacteria, antibiotic-resistant or otherwise, would be killed during cooking. People buy organic food for a variety of reasons — concerns about the effects of pesticides on young children, the environmental impact of large-scale conventional farming and the potential public health threat. But if the choice is based mainly on the hope that organic foods will provide more nutrients, “I would say there is no concrete evidence to choose one or the other,” Dr. Bravata, one of the scientists of the research, said.

【題組】45. What is the major argument of this research?
(A) Organic foods do not have any benefits.
(B) Organic foods do not contain more nutrition.
(C) The high price of organic foods is not reasonable.
(D) Consumers should not waste money in buying organic foods.

46.【題組】46. Organic foods have more ______ than traditional foods.
(A) Vitamin C
(B) pesticides
(C) phosphorus
(D) antibiotic-resistant bacteria

47.【題組】47. If children take in organic foods, ______ .
(A) they will become emotionally unsettled
(B) fewer chemicals will be found in their bodies
(C) they will be more sensitive to viruses of all kinds
(D) the lack of nutrition will make them get sick easily

48.【題組】48. When it comes to the nutrition of organic foods, Dr. Bravata’s attitude is ______ .
(A) reserved
(B) supportive
(C) negative
(D) optimistic

49. 49 至 52 題為題組
 Margaret Thatcher, who has died aged 87, was a political phenomenon. She was the first woman elected to lead a major western power; the longest serving British prime minister for 150 years; the most dominant and the most divisive force in British politics in the second half of the th 20 century. She was also a global figure, a star in the U.S., a heroine in the former Soviet republics of central Europe, a point of reference for politicians in France, Germany, Italy and Spain. In Britain, the Thatcher years were a turning point. In the 1979 general election, Thatcher was the first, and the only so far, woman to become British prime minister. She was an advocate of privatizing state-owned industries, reforming trade unions, lowering taxes and reducing the government’s expenses. Thatcher’s policies succeeded in reducing inflation, but unemployment dramatically increased during her years in power. In foreign affairs, victory in the Falklands War in 1982 helped Thatcher win a landslide victory in the 1983 general election. Besides, Thatcher cultivated a close political and personal relationship with U.S. president Ronald Reagan, because they shared a common mistrust of communism and strong confidence in free-market economy. Thatcher also warmly welcomed the rise of Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev, and she was nicknamed the “Iron Lady” by the Soviets. In the 1987 general election, Thatcher won an unprecedented third term in office. But controversial policies, including the poll tax and her opposition to any closer integration with Europe, produced divisions within the Conservative Party which led to a leadership challenge by some people who did not agree to her policies. In November 1990, she agreed to resign from party leader and prime minister, replaced by John Major. She retired from public life after a stroke in 2002 and suffered several strokes after that. She died of a stroke on April 8, 2013.

【題組】49. In the first paragraph, the “major western power” refers to ______ .
(A) the United States
(B) the Soviet Union
(C) the United Kingdom

(B) Gorbachev introduced them to know each other
(C) they both joined the Falklands War
(D) they had similar views on economic policy

51.【題組】51. Which one of the following is Thatcher’s contribution?

The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), the specialized cancer agency of the World Health Organization, is today launching World Cancer Report 2014, a collaboration of over 250 leading scientists from more than 40 countries. Based on the latest statistics on trends in cancer incidence and mortality worldwide, this new book reveals how the cancer burden is growing at an alarming pace. As a consequence of growing and ageing populations, developing countries are disproportionately affected by the increasing numbers of cancers. More than 60% of the world’s total cases occur in Africa, Asia, and Central and South America, and these regions account for about 70% of the world’s cancer deaths, a situation that is made worse by the lack of early detection and access to treatment. Access to effective and affordable cancer treatments in developing countries, including for childhood cancers, would effectively reduce mortality. However, the costs of the cancer burden are damaging the economies of even the richest countries and are way beyond the reach of developing countries. In 2010, the total annual economic cost of cancer was estimated to reach approximately US$ 1.16 trillion. In fact, about half of all cancers can be avoided if current knowledge is adequately practiced. Preventing the spread of tobacco use in low- and middle-income countries is of crucial importance to cancer control. Likewise, in rapidly industrializing countries, measures to encourage physical activity and avoid over-weight should also be prioritized in relation to cancers such as those of the large bowel and breast. In addition, low-tech approaches to early detection and screening have proven their effects in developing countries. “Governments must show political commitment to progressively step up the practice of high-quality screening and early detection programs, which is an investment rather than a cost,” says Dr Bernard W. Stewart, co-editor of World Cancer Report 2014.

【題組】53. What is the main idea of the World Cancer Report 2014?
(A) The burden from cancer is on the rise.
(B) New treatments to cancer are discovered.
(C) The causes of many cancers are still unknown.
(D) The condition of cancer in developing countries is improving.

54.【題組】54. If today the number of deaths caused by cancer worldwide is 10000, how many of them probably come from Africa, Asia, and Central and South America?
(A) 3000.
(B) 4000.
(C) 6000.
(D) 7000.

55.【題組】55. Why do people in developing countries become the major victims of cancer?
(A) They cannot afford detection and treatment.
(B) The quality of medication there is very poor.
(C) They often work for a long time and do not exercise.
(D) They don’t have enough technology to detect cancer.

56.【題組】56. Which one of the following is NOT a way to avoid cancer?
(A) Avoid the contact with cancer patients.
(B) Undergo low-tech screening tests.
(C) Exercise regularly.
(D) Quit smoking.
