        Generous billionaires are not hard to come by, but it is definitely a challenge to find a billionaire who spends all his fortune on charity just to end up broke. __31__
         Feeney, who grew up in a poor neighborhood of New Jersey, is a genius at finding business opportunities. Since childhood, he would take any job to make a few cents for his family—jobs like distributing umbrellas in summer and selling Christmas cards in winter. In his college years at Cornell University, he sold home-made sandwiches to other students and is still remembered there as the Sandwich Man.

         Influenced by his upbringing, Feeney decided to give away all his money to those in need in his lifetime. In 1984, the then 53-year-old Feeney signed over everything—his DFS shares and the various businesses and properties he had acquired worldwide—to Atlantic Philanthropies, a charity foundation he established. In the following decades, Feeney donated through the organization more than $8 billion anonymously, to charities, universities, human rights campaigns, and foundations worldwide. __33__
         Pioneering the idea of “Giving while Living,” Feeney is a role model for many famous billionaires today, including Bill Gates and Warren Buffet. __34__ In September 2020, Feeney’s go-for-broke mission was completed, and he now lives happily with his wife on a pension in a modest apartment in San Francisco.

第 35 至 38 題為題組
        Islands are different from a continent or mainland. The size and isolation of islands have a profound effect on island ecosystems and their inhabitants. 
        Scientists who specialize in species evolution have found that, among mammal species that settle on islands, big species tend to shrink while small ones are apt to enlarge. This phenomenon, discovered by J. Bristol Foster in 1964, has been called Foster’s rule, or the island effect. For instance, rodents (such as rats and squirrels) living on islands tend toward gigantism, while big mammals (like deer and elephants) are more likely to become dwarfed. Although there are a number of exceptions to this pattern, the trend generally holds true for both fossil species and living island mammals. 
         Foster’s rule shows that body size regulates everything. In a mainland environment, being large is often a safer and adaptive form of avoiding predators. On an island, with few natural predators and less competition, being really big is no longer an advantage; in fact, it can be a hindrance since a huge animal will need a lot more food in order to survive and reproduce. 
        A new fossil study of island-dwelling proboscideans (i.e. prehistoric hairy elephants) further shows that the physical attributes and ecological structure of an island may affect the degree of shrinking in big mammals. On relatively balanced and species-rich islands, competition with other species often result in a relatively less dwarfed body size. In contrast, on smaller islands where food sources are limited and competitors lacking, members of this group become smaller surprisingly quickly. On one of the Channel Islands 15 miles off the coast of France, the red deer dwarfed to one-sixth the size of deer on continental Europe in a mere 6,000 years after the island became isolated.

【題組】35. What is the second paragraph mainly about?
(A) The reasons why mammals change and evolve through time.
(B) A comparison of gigantism and dwarfism on different islands.
(C) The different patterns of evolution for big and small island mammals.
(D) The similarity between the evolution of fossil species and that of living species.

36.【題組】36. According to the passage, what is a problem big mammals might face on an island?
(A) There may not be enough food.
(B) It is harder to find shelter on small islands.
(C) It may be difficult to move around on small islands.
(D) They become less competitive due to lack of natural enemies.

37.【題組】37. What does “this group” in the fourth paragraph refer to?
(A) Fossil species.
(B) Natural predators.
(C) Big mammals.
(D) Limited competitors.

38.【題組】38. How does the author conclude the last paragraph?
(A) With a prediction.
(B) With a summary.
(C) With a suggestion.
(D) With an illustration.

39.第 39 至 42 題為題組 
         Monopoly is a very popular board game around the world today, but little is known about its American inventor, Elizabeth Magie, and the philosophy behind her invention. 
         Born in 1866, Magie was a rebel against the norms and politics of her times. Inspired by Henry George who believed that all men should have an equal right to use the land as they have to breathe air, she challenged the capitalist system of property ownership—in the form of a board game. In 1904, she patented her Landlord’s Game, which consisted of a circuit of streets and landmarks for sale.
          Magie’s game contained two sets of rules: The Prosperity rules and the Monopolist rules. The Prosperity rules stated that every player should gain each time someone acquired a new property. The game was won (by all!) when the player starting with the least money doubled his or her fortune. Under Monopolist rules, on the other hand, each player advanced by acquiring properties and collecting rent from all who landed there later. Whoever managed to bankrupt the other players won the game. The purpose of the dual sets of rules, said Magie, was for players to understand how these different approaches to property can lead to different social outcomes: “all win” or “win all.”
         The game soon became a hit on college campuses and among Quaker communities, and some people modified the game board. An unemployed player named Charles Darrow sold this modified version to the manufacturer Parker Brothers as his own. However, when the game’s true origin came to light, Parker Brothers bought the patent from Magie for only $500. They then re-launched the game as Monopoly, including only the rules leading to the triumph of one over all. Darrow was publicized as the inventor who had become a millionaire from selling the game. Thus a rags-to-riches myth was created, ironically exemplifying Monopoly’s implicit values: Chase wealth and crush your opponents if you want to come out on top.

【題組】39. What is this passage mainly about?
(A) The creation and modification of a board game.
(B) A fight between patent owners of a popular game.
(C) A socio-economic victory behind a landlord game.
(D) The person who became a millionaire from a fun game.

40.【題組】40. What was the main purpose of Magie’s Prosperity rules?
(A) To emphasize the value of the capitalist system.
(B) To introduce different approaches to obtaining new land.
(C) To advocate that all should be rewarded when one acquires wealth.
(D) To challenge George’s idea that men should have an equal right to the land.

41.【題組】41. What does “a rags-to-riches myth” refer to in the last paragraph?
(A) A modified version of Monopoly.
(B) Darrow’s success after selling the game.
(C) Parker Brothers’ purchase of Magie’s patent.
(D) The popularity of the game on college campuses.

42.【題組】42. Which of the following would best describe Magie’s feelings toward today’s version of her game?
(A) Excited.
(B) Relieved.
(C) Embarrassed.
(D) Displeased.

43.第 43 至 46 題為題組 
         For decades, India’s time zone has been a hotly debated issue. Back in 1884 when time zones were officially established, two time zones were used—Bombay Time and Calcutta Time. Indian Standard Time (IST) was introduced in 1906, but Calcutta Time and Bombay Time continued to be maintained after India’s independence in 1947, until 1948 and 1955 respectively. The current single time zone, though a legacy of British rule, is often viewed as a symbol of unity. Yet, not everyone thinks it is a good idea. 
        India stretches 3,000 km from east to west, spanning roughly 30 degrees longitude. This corresponds to a two-hour difference in mean solar time, based on the position of the sun in the sky. Thus, the sun rises nearly two hours earlier in the east than in India’s far west. In Northeastern states, sunrise can be as early as 4 a.m. in summer and sunset by 4 p.m. in winter, much earlier than the official working hours. This results in great loss of daylight hours and more consumption of electricity, and often reduced productivity. 
         Meanwhile, recent studies point out that the current system leads to a serious problem in education for some students. Nationwide, the school day starts at roughly the same time; thus, children go to bed later and have reduced sleep in west India, where the sun sets later. Such sunset-induced sleep deprivation is more pronounced among the poor, mostly due to their noisy environment and lack of sleep-inducing facilities like window shades or indoor beds. On average, an hour’s delay in sunset time reduces children’s sleep by 30 minutes, and an hour’s delay in annual average sunset time reduces education by about 0.8 years. As a result, children living in locations with later sunsets are less likely to complete primary and middle school education. 
         Despite various requests and proposals for multiple time zones, the government is keen to retain the current system. Reasons provided include prevention of confusion and safety issues regarding railway and flight operations.


43. Which of the following illustrates the Indian time zone system since 1955?
(A) 61ea4e495ecab.jpg
(B) 61ea4e504589d.jpg
(C) 61ea4e57bb3a3.jpg
(D) 61ea4e5da7f71.jpg

44.【題組】44. Which of the following is closest in meaning to the word “pronounced” in the third paragraph?
(A) Serious.
(B) Flexible.
(C) Distant.
(D) Noisy.

45.【題組】45. According to the passage, which of the following is a supporting argument for multiple time zones?
(A) The number of traffic accidents can be reduced.
(B) Children may have better-quality sleep and education.
(C) India may have more energy resources to generate electricity.
(D) The country may rid itself of the impact of British colonization.


46. According to the passage, when is most likely the sunset hour in December in the city of Varanasi shown on the map?
(A) 7 p.m.
(B) 6 p.m.
(C) 5 p.m.
(D) 4 p.m.

第 47 至 50 題為題組 
          Richard I was the king of England from 1189 to 1199. He was known as “Richard the Lionheart” because he was a brave warrior and was said to be afraid of nothing. After ascending the throne, Richard led an army to join the Third Crusade to recover Christian holy sites from the Muslims. He fought side by side with the Duke of Austria, Leopold V, and together they conquered the powerful fortress of Acre in 1191. However, when Richard reached the top of the castle to claim victory, he displayed only his own banner and not that of Duke Leopold, who was absent at the time. This was an insult too much for the duke to bear, so he placed a price on Richard’s head.
         Richard was aware of the danger awaiting him on his way back to England after the war. However, he had no other choice but to cross through Austria, a land controlled by his unfriendly former ally. Richard traveled in disguise but was recognized and caught before reaching Vienna. Duke Leopold held Richard at Dürnstein, a castle on the bank of the Danube River. After a few months, Richard was handed over to the German Emperor Heinrich VI. A ransom of 35 tons of silver was demanded by the duke and the emperor to release Richard. That was a huge amount for England to pay.
        In 1194, the ransom was paid and Richard was finally released, though the effort it took to raise the money affected people throughout England. The silver was split between the German Emperor and the Austrian Duke. The Austrians used it to improve the city walls of Vienna and some small towns in the east. It was also used to establish the Austrian mint and make silver coins. Until the 1960s, small amounts of the silver stemming from the ransom could still be found in Austrian 10 Schilling coins.
