33.請依下文回答第 33 題至第 37 題 Written English has evolved mostly in ways unrelated to the changes in the spoken language, thanks in part to shenanigans and human error. The first English printing press, in the 15th century, was operated by Belgians who didn't know the language and made numerous spelling errors (such as "busy" in place of "bisy"). And because they were paid by the line, they sometimes padded words with extra letters; "frend," for example, became "friend." In the next century, other non-English speakers in continental Europe printed the first English Bibles, introducing yet more errors. Worse, those Bibles were then copied, and the writing became increasingly corrupted with each subsequent rendition. English spelling became a chaotic mess, and successful attempts to simplify the spelling after that were offset by events that made the language harder to learn, such as the inclusion of many alternate spellings in Samuel Johnson's influential English dictionary. Unlike many other languages, English spelling was never reformed to eliminate the incongruities. In a sense, English speakers now talk in one language but write a different one.
【題組】33 According to this passage, why did "frend" become "friend"?
(A)For making more money. 

(B)For creating extra meaning.
(C)For reading between the lines.
(D)For finding a pad for the word. 
34.【題組】34 What does "corrupted" mean in this passage?
(A)erupt
(B)erroneous 
(C)greedy  
(D)tolerant 
35.【題組】35 Which of the following is true about the evolution of written English?
(A)It is closely related to the evolution of spoken English.
(B)It is supposed to give credits to humor of human beings.
(C)It is affected by many mischievous activities or mistakes.
(D)It is critically initiated by the chaos and reforms in Europe.
36.【題組】36 Which of the following statements is NOT true?
(A)The Belgians who ran the first English printing press did not know English.
(B)The first English Bibles printed by the Europeans were full of errors.
(C)Production of the copies of the Bibles featured financial corruption.
(D)English spelling kept getting worse even with some good efforts to simplify it.
37.【題組】37 Which of the following could best describe the main idea of this passage?

38.請依下文回答第 38 題至第 41 題 The flipped classroom is a pedagogical model in which the typical lecture and homework elements of a course are reversed. Short video lectures are viewed by students at home before the class session, while in-class time is 38 to exercises, projects, or discussions. The video lecture is often seen as the key ingredient in the flipped approach, such lectures being either created by the instructor and 39 online or selected from an online repository. While a prerecorded lecture could certainly be a podcast or other audio format, the ease with which video can be 40 and viewed today has made it so ubiquitous that the flipped model has come to be identified with it. The notion of a flipped classroom draws on such concepts as active learning, student engagement, hybrid course design, and course podcasting. The value of a flipped class is in the repurposing of class time into a workshop where students can inquire about lecture content, test their skills in applying knowledge, and interact with one another in 41 activities. During class sessions, instructors function as coaches or advisors, encouraging students in individual inquiry and collaborative effort.

42.請依下文回答第 42 題至第 45 題 Numbers have a strange grasp on people's lives, thanks to the human tendency to 42 deeper meaning to numbers. Some people make a wish at 11:11. Others believe that good things 43 in threes. We celebrate birthdays, anniversaries, sweet 16s. Some numbers are divine, e.g., seventh heaven, or are given divine connotations through math, e.g., the golden ratio. And of course, there's pop culture: James Bond is 007; Jim Carrey did something-or-other with the number 23. Twelve has found particular significance across cultural fields—there are 12 zodiac signs, 12 months in a year, 12 models of Cylons. But 13? Thirteen's cultural meaning is a little more 44 . This number is most often associated with fear or superstition, mostly in Western culture. Thirteen is rooted in negative meaning, which can partly be 45 to the Bible since Judas, who betrays Jesus, was the 13th guest at the Last Supper, as well as to pop culture. The horror franchise Friday the 13th capitalizes on the fear of the date itself.

46.請依下文回答第 46 題至第 50 題 My husband Peter and I lease a land for organic farming in the foothills of Northern California. In the heat of summer, my fields cover the bronzed landscape like a green quilt spread over sand. We mind the requirements for organic farming and successfully get certificates for all our vegetables. Ten acres of them trace the contours of a small valley floor. Tomatoes glow crimson, flowers bloom and watermelons grow fat. But the beautiful picture does not overrule the reality that my business is struggling. Whenever a customer asked how things were going, I replied, Great. I never revealed the truth, Well, we're making ends meet, but we work 12 hours a day, 6 days a week, and pay ourselves only what we need to cover food and household expenses: $100 per week. I didn't tell anyone how, over the course of the last three years since Peter and I had started our farm, I'd drained most of my savings. I didn't admit that the only thing keeping the farm afloat was income Peter and I earned through other means — Peter working as a carpenter and I as a baker. I didn't say I felt like I was trying to fill a bathtub when the drain was open. People admire organic farming, but they seldom know it's hard to sustain a living.
