(1)The Giver is a story about a future community where people don’t have emotions and desires. This may seem good, but the government and society forbid the residents in this community to think for themselves, too. People’s minds and behaviors are controlled by medicine and regulations. To make this community system work, each resident’s movements are carefully watched, and they must follow strict rules. For example, once a teenager is twelve years old, he or she will be assigned a job that best fits his or her abilities in the Ceremony of Twelve. In addition to jobs, peoples’ lives are also strictly controlled. When people grow old and die, they are released into the “Great Expanse.” In addition, people who don’t follow the rules and newborn babies who are flawed are released. In other words, they are killed. But no one is worried about this because they don’t understand what death is. 
 Though all the residents share the same lifestyle and follow the same rules, there is a special boy called Jonas. Jonas has pale eyes while others have dark ones. In addition, he sometimes sees flashes of color that others don’t. Before the Ceremony of Twelve, he is very curious to know what his future job will be. During his ceremony, he even expresses feelings of worry about his future. Because of his uniqueness, Jonas is assigned a very important job: the Receiver of Memory. To do this, he must keep in his mind all of the community’s memories of pain, war, and happiness. 
 Jonas received all these memories from “The Giver,” whose job is to transfer memories to Jonas. These memories are both joyous and painful, enriching Jonas’ life, for he learns to think for himself instead of having his decisions made for him. He also learns the joy of feeling strong emotions. 
 His enlightenment leads to problems because none of his loved ones have the ability to feel these emotions. This frustrates him greatly and he feels like an outsider, which is made worse after he learns that a troublesome baby he has helped care for, Gabriel, is about to be “released.” Deciding to save the baby’s life, Jonas takes Gabriel and escapes society by going to the area outside the community, known as “Elsewhere.” 
 Jonas and Gabriel face joy and suffering after their escape, as they encounter hunger, snow, and cold, which they hadn’t ever experienced. Finally, they see—or think they see—the welcoming lights of a village and begin waking toward it. What is waiting for them is a mystery.

【題組】61. What is the story mainly about?
(A) How “The Giver” transfers all the memories to Jonas.
(B) How the people are controlled by the government and society.
(C) How Jonas saved Gabriel.
(D) How Jonas strives to live a different life from others in this future community.

62.【題組】62.What does the word “forbid” in the first paragraph mean?
(A) To encourage.
(B) To demand.
(C) To disallow.
(D) To stimulate.

63.【題組】63.What kind of people will not be “released” into the “Great Expanse?”
(A) Senior citizens.
(B) The newborn babies.
(C) Those who passed away.
(D) Those who defy the authorities.

64.【題組】64.Which of the following statements is NOT true about Jonas?
(A) Jonas knows exactly what he will do in the future.
(B) Jonas can see flashes of color.
(C) Jonas can think.
(D) Jonas has pale eyes.

65.【題組】65.Which of the following statements is NOT true?
(A) The baby Gabriel is doomed.
(B) Everyone’s job is assigned according to his or her abilities.
(C) “The Giver” is the only person who keeps all of the community’s memories.
(D) People living in “Elsewhere” are controlled by medicine.

66. (2) Clichés generally get a bad reputation. It’s because they are expressions so overused that they reveal no personality on the user’s part, or rather, his lack of personality. But let’s face it: there are many situations in life where it is hard to be original or honest. “Congratulations! May you two be blessed with many years of happiness!” is the obvious remark at a wedding even if you have serious doubts about the couple’s compatibility. You see, although clichés can be insincere and superficial, they are safe and inoffensive
 Although clichés sound universal, many actually reflect a particular society’s values. American business life—capitalistic and competitive in nature—is full of sporting expressions. You might be thrown a curve ball in an interview. You have to make home runs in business. The current command to think outside the box—be unconventional—is so overused that eventually, thinking within the box will be unusual instead.        
The world of art, music and films have also contributed. Does love really mean you never have to say sorry? Do gentlemen really prefer blondes? Is your sweetheart the sunshine of your life? The clichéd themes and characterizations of novels and movies—the lonely cowboy, the poor but handsome hero who gets the rich girl, the mafia boss who suffers—provide comfort and familiarity in our real but unpredictable world. 
 Clichés sound better in other languages. Shrug your shoulder nonchalantly and say, ‘C’est la vie’ (‘That’s life’). Doesn’t that sound cool? But maybe, that’s because it’s French. I once translated a Chinese saying into English to explain why I lived in Europe. “Oh, when you marry a chicken, you follow a chicken; when you marry a dog, you follow a dog.” My listeners, including my husband, looked perturbed. It just didn’t sound classy.
 So clichés have many uses—they help us when we are at a loss for words, they entertain and amuse and they bind us as a community. Besides, in many ways, they also express our deepest desire. Does anyone not at some point or another hope to live happily ever after?

【題組】66.The passage is mainly about ______.
(A) the weak points of clichés
(B) the influence of clichés in our lives
(C) the development of clichés
(D) how clichés get a bad reputation

(A) shallow
(B) not special

(D) unoriginal

69.【題組】69.Which of the following is NOT one of the uses of clichés?
(A) They allow us to accurately express what we intend to mean.
(B) They show our desires.
(C) They help us form a good relationship with others.

71.(3)In late December 2018, the Japanese government announced that it would leave the International Whaling Commission. It would also withdraw from the treaty that bans whaling. The country will resume commercial whaling at the beginning of July. The international treaty, which was created in 1986, never totally stopped Japan from whaling. It allowed Japan to continue whaling for scientific reasons. Meat that was not used for scientific purposes was still sold. In its announcement, the Japanese government said that whaling has a long history in Japan. Whales have been used as a source of protein and for a variety of other purposes for centuries. The government also said that it would end its hunts in the Antarctic and only do whaling in its own waters. Environmental groups are unhappy about Japan’s decision. Greenpeace said the government sneaked the announcement in over the holiday to avoid news coverage. The group said the decision was “out of step with the international community.”

(D) At the end of last year.

74.(4) Stone Paper is made from calcium carbonate, which is the main ingredient in chalk, marble, pearls, and egg shells. It was invented in the 1990s by a company called Taiwan Lung Meng Corporation. Stone Paper is produced using materials from quarries. Waste limestone or marble is powdered and then bonded together with a small amount of HDPE (a nontoxic plastic) to make paper. Stone Paper is smoother than paper made from wood. It is also waterproof and difficult to tear. These properties make it perfect for posters, packaging, and even writing underwater. Stone Paper is largely environmentally friendly. No trees or water are used to make it. It can be recycled an unlimited number of times, unlike regular paper. While it does contain 20 percent plastic, Stone Paper will degrade if it is exposed to sunlight for 14 to 18 months. With a piece of Stone Paper, you can now etch your words in stone.

77.重新載圖(5) Technology has come a long way in the decades since the first slow and bulky computers found their way into our homes, offices, and daily lives. Artificial intelligence—commonly known as AI—has given machines the power to think much like humans. In fact, computers are capable of thinking and calculating much faster than people. What’s more, they never get distracted, nor do they need to rest. These features mean their awesome power can be harnessed to perform complex functions and process huge amounts of information.
 Automated computer programs called bots can quickly accomplish tasks that would take humans days, weeks, or even years. Bots are even changing the face of journalism by producing written articles for newspapers, magazines, online blogs, and websites. One bot called Tobi wrote an amazing 40,000 news articles about a recent election in Switzerland in only 5 minutes! Of course such a feat would be impossible, even for a team of ten thousand news reporters working together.  
Many media outlets—including major newspapers and television news channels—are now using bots to produce the content 5f2faa0f95ded.jpg provide to readers and viewers. These bots are able to imitate human writing so closely that audiences don’t know the difference. AI can even predict what topics will interest readers, based on big data analysis. Bots allow media outlets to easily meet deadlines and save money by paying fewer employees. Here’s a question: do you think this article was written by a human or a bot?

【題組】77.What is the writer’s main purpose in writing this passage? 
(A) To discuss the amazing results of a recent election in Switzerland.
(B) To discuss the growing use of artificial intelligence by news media outlets to generate written content.
(C)To argue it’s unfair that human reporters might lose their jobs as a result of media outlets using bots.
(D) To provide a brief history of the development of artificial intelligence.


78.What does the word “ 5f2faa1e4ea93.jpg” in the third paragraph refer to? 
(A) AI programs.
(B) Human beings.
(C) Modern computers.
(D) Media outlets.
