36.The teddy bear, a child’s toy, is a nice soft stuffed animal suitable for cuddling. In fact, it is a toy with an interesting history behind it. Theodore Roosevelt, also called Teddy, was the president of the United States from 1902 to 1909. He was an unusually active man with varied hobbies, one of which was hunting. One day the president was invited to take part in a bear hunt; and inasmuch as Teddy was president, his hosts wanted to ensure that he caught a bear. A bear was therefore captured, clanked over the head to knock it out, and tied to a tree; however, Teddy who really wanted to actually hunt, refused to shoot the bear and in fact demanded that the bear be extricated from the ropes; that is, he demanded that the bear be set free. The incident attracted a lot of attention among journalists. First a cartoon—drawn by Clifford K. Berryman to make fun of this situation—appeared in the Washington Post, and the cartoon was a toy bear which they called “Teddy Bear,” and the Teddy Bear became the most widely recognized symbol of Roosevelt’s presidency.

39.There is a pecking order in the respectability of time-wasting at work, and computer games are at the bottom of it. Minute for minute, all time-wasting activities eat up the same amount of time, but employers tend not to see it like that. Luckily for me, the activity I like the best is the most respectable. It is chatting. Strictly speaking, this is twice as wasteful, as you are not just squandering your own time but also that of the person you are talking to. However, most modern organizations do not merely tolerate chatting but actively encourage it. Next to chatting come frequent visits to the vending machine and the loo. Companies generally do not object to this. You meet people on the way and then chat some there. Further down the pecking order are shopping on the internet and researching obscure medical conditions on Google. Some organizations outlaw this sort of thing but most tolerate it, more or less.
【題組】39. According to the passage, which of the following is NOT true?
(A) All the companies think that all the time-wasting activities should be banned.
(B) Most modern companies allow their workers chatting at work.
(C) Chatting wastes more time than playing computer games.
(D) The author prefers chatting to computer games.

41.From its inception, children’s literature had in it an unusual educational function, which is to show horror and dire consequences in order to lead one into a certain pattern. Yeh-Shen: A Cinderella Story from China, for instance, relied on brutal intimidation to frighten children into docile behavior. In the story, Yeh-Shen was disfavored by her stepmother, and had to take care of all the house chores. At the village where Yeh-Shen lived, a festival would be held in springtime. All young men and women would like to attend the festival since it provided them with a chance to meet other youths, and possibly further spouse. As the festival was approaching, Yeh-Shen longed to go. But, her stepmother forbade her to leave the house. Desperately, she asked help from the magic bones that her fish friend left to her before. Immediately, she was transformed into a beauty. That night at the festival, everyone marveled at her prettiness. However, in order to hide from her stepmother and stepsister, she ran away from the party. She therefore lost one of her slippers. She had to find her shoe and return to the bones; otherwise, the bones would no longer have any responses to her. When she went to take her lost shoe back, her beauty attracted the prince. Eventually, the prince asked for her hand in marriage. As she was rewarded for her good heart, hard work, and inner beauty, her stepmother and stepsister were crushed to death in a shower of stones because of their wickedness and malice. In short, through a combined representation of a good girl and a wicked stepsister, this tale promotes a pedagogy of fear and terror through images of death and disaster to pave the path for children to move into their expected roles.

46.In recent years our society has become increasingly aware that when researchers study people, they may inadvertently harm them---not just physically but emotionally, by embarrassing them or violating their privacy. So every college or university now has a Human Subjects Committee that reviews all research directly or indirectly involving people, when done by students or professional researchers. Its aim is to make sure that researchers follow the rule that should govern research as it does medicine: Do no harm. So check with that committee if you use people as sources of data---by interviewing them, surveying them, or even just observing them. You don’t need clearance if you informally talk with a few dorm mates for a paper in a first-year writing class (to be polite, you should still tell them what you intend to do with the information they give you). You will likely need clearance if you are a graduate student and want to do a survey on campus that collects personal data of any kind. But if you are an advanced researcher, you must without fail get clearance before you do any kind of research that involves people. Going through these steps may be annoying, but if you don’t, you could harm those who help you in ways you don’t anticipate and your institution could pay a price.
【題組】46. What is the topic of this passage?
(A) Research methods
(B) Research ethics

(D)A You might hurt your research subjects by simply observing them.

48.【題組】48. Which of the following is NOT true according to the passage?
(A) The maxim of medicine is: do no harm to people.
(B) The maxim of research is: do no harm to your subjects.
(C) People were not aware that they might harm research subjects unconsciously.
(D)A Many researchers believe that the process of seeking clearance is too simplistic.

49.【題組】49. Which of the following research requires clearance from the Human Subjects Committee?
