閱讀測驗 41-45 
The world’s oceans have warmed 50 percent faster over the last 40 
years than previously thought due to climate change, Australian and US 
climate researchers reported Wednesday. Higher ocean temperatures 
expand the volume of water, contributing to a rise in sea levels that is 
submerging small island nations and threatening to wreak havoc in 
low-lying, densely-populated delta regions around the globe. 
The study, published in the British journal Nature, adds to a growing 
scientific chorus of warnings about the pace and consequences rising 
oceans. It also serves as a corrective to a massive report issued last year 
by the Nobel-winning UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change 
(IPCC), according to the authors. 
Rising sea levels are driven by two things: the thermal expansion of
sea water, and additional water from melting sources of ice. Both 
processes are caused by global warming. The ice sheet that sits atop 
Greenland, for example, contains enough water to raise world ocean 
levels by seven meters (23 feet), which would bury sea-level cities from 
Dhaka to Shanghai. 
Trying to figure out how much each of these factors contributes to 
rising sea levels is critically important to understanding climate change, 
and forecasting future temperature rises, scientists say. But up to now, 
there has been a perplexing gap between the projections of
computer-based climate models, and the observations of scientists 
gathering data from the oceans. 
The new study, led by Catia Domingues of the Center for Australian 
Weather and Climate Research, is the first to reconcile the models with 
observed data. Using new techniques to assess ocean temperatures to a 
depth of 700 meters (2,300 feet) from 1961 to 2003, it shows that thermal 
warming contributed to a 0.53 millimeter-per-year rise in sea levels rather 
than the 0.32 mm rise reported by the IPCC. 

【題組】41. What happens when the ocean’s temperature rises?
(A) It causes sea levels to rise.
(B) It causes sea levels to remain constant.
(C) It causes sea levels to decrease.
(D) None of the above.

42.【題組】42. The rise in water levels is especially dangerous for small island nations and:
(A) low-lying urban areas.
(B) all coastal cities.
(C) people who live on the beach.
(D) None of the above.

43.【題組】43. The new study:
(A) shows that thermal warming contributed to a 0.32 millimeter-per-year rise in sea levels.
(B) did not reveal anything that scientists didn't already know.
(C) used new techniques to assess ocean temperatures.
(D) None of the above.臺北捷運公司 104 年 1 月 24 日新進助理控制員、工程員(二) 、專員(二)甄試試題-英文 第 6 頁/共 7 頁

44.【題組】44. Ultimately, the new study should help scientists to:
(A) lower water levels.
(B) better predict climate change.
(C) bury sea-level cities like Dhaka and Shanghai.
(D) None of the above.

45.【題組】45. What was the main finding of the study?
(A) That not enough is being done about global warming.
(B) That ocean waters have warmed faster than scientists had previously thought.
(C) That the warming of the world’s oceans is not a threat.
(D) None of the above.

46.閱讀測驗 46-50 While the seven Harry Potter novels have enjoyed amazing success, it is doubtful that their author, J. K. Rowling, will ever be awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature. Only one British woman has received such an honor, eighty-nine-year-old Doris Lessing. Born in Persia (now Iran) in 1919 to British parents, Lessing moved to Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe) in white-ruled southern Africa when she was a child. She lived a comfortable yet sheltered life in the racially divided colonial society. In her early twenties, however, she met and began socializing with intellectuals and other émigrés from Hitler's Europe, ultimately developing a lifelong interest in leftist politics. In 1949, with a finished manuscript of her first novel, The Grass is Singing, Lessing left Africa for Europe to pursue writing full-time. Lessing's approach to writing has evolved through three separate periods, characterized by the themes expressed in her books. The first of these, politics, lasted from 1949 to 1956, and the semi-autobiographical Martha Quest is regarded as her best work from this time. The novel centers on a white woman in Africa who develops a political conscience and works to better the lives of the poor. The second, psychology, lasted from 1956 to 1969. Her best-known work from this period was 1962’s The Golden Notebook, the story of a woman writer and the independence her career brought her. The book has been hailed as a classic feminist novel, but Lessing insists that many readers failed to grasp its theme of emotional healing. The third stage of Lessing’s writing career, from 1969 onwards, emphasizes spirituality and has been influenced by her conversion to Sufism, a mystical form of Islam. She has chosen to explore the implications of this philosophy from within a genre that few serious British writers are willing to embrace. Shikatsa, published in 1979, analyzes human history from the perspective of creatures from another planet. Lessing admits that she enjoys the freedom to mix reality and fantasy that science fiction offers. First nominated for the Nobel Prize in the 1960s, Lessing was passed over by the awarding committee many times before gaining the honor in late 2007. In an interview months earlier, Lessing had announced that the 臺北捷運公司 104 年 1 月 24 日新進助理控制員、工程員(二) 、專員(二)甄試試題-英文 第 7 頁/共 7 頁 novel she was then working on would be her last, saying that it was simply time to stop. Whether or not she actually ceases writing when she finishes her current work, the significance of her contribution to English literature will endure. Lessing’s name is not as recognizable to most readers as Rowling's, nor have her works sold as many copies, but Doris Lessing has finally received the highest validation for her writing.
