第41至第43題為題組

       To a great extent, we owe our current high standard of living to biological advances in food production. Plant and animal breeders have developed organisms that provide better sources of food than the original varieties. Corn is a grass that produces its seeds on a cob. The original corn plant had very small ears that were perhaps only three or four centimeters long. Through selective breeding, varieties of corn with much larger ears and more seeds per cob plant have been adapted to produce other kinds of corn, such as sweet corn and popcorn.

        Animal breeders also have had much success. The pig, chicken, and cow of today are much different animals from those available even 100 years ago. Chickens lay more eggs, dairy cows give more milk, and beef cattle grow faster. All of these improvements raise our standard of living. One interesting example is the change in the kind of hogs that are raised. At one time, farmers wanted pigs that were fatty. The fat could be made into lard, soap, and various other products. As the demand for fat products of pigs declined, animal breeders developed pigs that gave a high yield of meat and relatively little fat. Today, plant and animal breeders can produce plants and animals almost to specifications.


【題組】41 Which of the following statements about com is NOT true?
(A) The original com ears were three or four centimeters long.
(B)We have com with large ears because of selective breeding.
(C)Biological advances help produce varieties of com.
(D)Corn can hardly adapt itself.
12.【題組】42 According to the passage, which of the following statements is true?
(A)Farmers have nothing to do with raising our standard of living.
(B)Thanks to selective breeding, animal breeders raise more fatty chickens.
(C)Biological advances in food production give us a higher standard of living.
(D)Sweet corn and popcorn add variety to our lifestyle.
13.【題組】43 According to the passage, what is the new trend in raising pigs?
(A)To raise pigs for a high yield of meat and a high yield of fat.
(B)To raise pigs for a low yield of meat and a high yield of fat.
(C)To raise pigs for a high yield of meat and a low yield of fat.
(D)To raise pigs for producing more piglets.
14.第44題至第46題為題組 Horror movies are more than a genre produced for commercial and entertaining reasons. There are good and bad horror movies, and a good horror movie is easily distinguished from a bad one. A good horror movie, first of all, has both male and female victims. Both sexes suffer terrible fates at the hands of monsters and maniacs. Therefore, everyone in the audience has a chance to identify with the victim. Bad horror movies, on the other hand, tend to concentrate on women, especially half-dressed ones. These movies are obviously prejudiced against half the human race. Second, a good horror movie inspires compassion for its characters. For example, the audience will feel sympathy for the Wolfman,s victims and also for the Wolfman, who is shown to be a sad victim of fate. In contrast, a bad horror movie encourages feelings of aggression and violence in viewers. For instance, in the Halloween films, the murder scenes use the murderer’s point of view. The effect is that the audience stalks the victims along with the killer and feels the same thrill he does. Finally, every good horror movie has a sense of humor. In Dracula, the Count says meaningfully at dinner, “I don’t drink wine,” as he stares at a young woman’s juicy neck. Humor provides relief from the horror and makes the characters more human. A bad horror movie, though, is humorless and boring. One murder is piled on top of another, and the characters are just cardboard figures. Bad horror movies may provide cheap thrills, but the good ones touch our emotions and live forever.
【題組】44 What is this passage mainly about?
(A) The history of horror movies
(B)The production of a good horror movie
(C)The experience of watching horror movies

15.【題組】45 How would the audience feel when watching a good horror movie?
(A)The audience will be thrilled all the time.
(B)The audience will sympathize with the victims.
(C)The audience will follow the murderer’s point of view.
(D)The audience will have a prejudice against female victims.
16.【題組】46 According to this passage, who tends to be the victims in a bad horror movie?
(A)Men
(B) Women
(C)Both men and women
(D)Monsters and maniacs

第47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

        The lesson of comparative advantage is that while anything we do is worth doing well, not everything we do well is worth doing. A CEO who is a great cook still orders take-out, even take-out that is not as good as what the CEO can make. The cost of cooking is not just the grocery bill.     47   

        Consider Jane Galt, the pseudonym of an accomplished journalist who blogs on economics and policy.      48      She recently blogged on the best kitchen gadgets. Her descriptions made us want to buy all of them—Jane writes very well and her passion for cool stuff is contagious. A visitor to the site commented, perhaps tongue-in-cheek, that the failure of Jane to be hired as a copywriter for a kitchenware catalog was proof that markets do not work well.     49     Jane remains a journalist precisely because markets do work well—as good as she is at writing catalog copy, she is even better at journalism. For Jane to become a copywriter for a catalog would be very costly even though she is very good at it. I presume the kitchenware makers cannot pay her enough to bid her away from her day job as a journalist.

         50    Just because America could make fabulous televisions does not mean we should have a television industry. The cost of producing televisions means less of something else. It might be better to make that something else and trade with foreigners for televisions. Letting people outside the United States sell us televisions and cars and watches and steel and shoes frees up resources that allow us to make more of other things we value.
