41.41-43題為題組 I wonder how often your family has bought new furniture, curtains or kitchen equipment and then wondered how to dispose of the old items that still have quite a lot of life left in them. It was in response to this situation that The Carpenters’ Shop was opened in the town of Walsall, Staffordshire. Run by a team of church volunteers, the shop will collect any surplus, good-quality items and store them until they can be redistributed to the people who are needing those particular things. Many have been helped through the scheme, including single parents, disabled people and the elderly, and those who have lost all their household possessions through a disaster such as a house fire. It’s an admirable project, and it is worth finding out if a similar one operates in your hometown. Participation costs the donor nothing and can make such a difference to others.

44.44-47題為題組 What can you do if you ‘lose’ the data from your disks? To find an expert, who would recover the lost information for you, is probably the easiest solution. Jack Olson is one of these experts. Jack and a few of his friends set up a company called “Jack’s Disk Doctor Service” in 1984. They work from home and give all the money they earn to charity. The fees are always the same, no matter how precious the data on the disk is. Some people, however, are so grateful that they send extra money to Jack or to the charities his company supports. One oil company offered him $2000 for his help and an architect even sent him a blank check. It would be difficult to put a value on the things rescued by the Disk Doctor. There have been disks containing medical research, television scripts, manuscripts of whole books, a lawyer’s papers for a court case, and even Margaret Thatcher’s travel plan for a visit to eastern Europe. For this last case, Jack had to go in person to Thatcher's office ‘for security reasons’! Disks are usually sent to the Disk Doctor by post, but sometimes people are in such a hurry that they cannot wait for the mail to come. For example, some radio scripts had to be rushed by taxi to Jack’s house because they were needed for broadcasting the next day. When the material has been recovered, the disk is returned to the sender with a diagnosis and a prescription for avoiding the problem in the future. One grateful client, an author, put a “thank you” to Jack in the front of his book. “Jack saved me from a heart attack,” he wrote. “But,” says Jack, “most people don’t take any notice of the doctor’s advice!”
【題組】 44. What does the word rescued in the second paragraph mean?
(A) recovered
(B) prescribed
(C) examined
(D) discovered

45.【題組】45. Why did the architect send Jack a blank check?

(B) The architect did it for security reasons
(C) The architect always followed the doctor's advice
(D) The architect thought Jack's service was priceless

(B) Jack and his company have made a fortune from their service.
(C) Margaret Thatcher is a very important person.
(D) Jack’s clients are from all walks of life.

47.【題組】47. From the statement “But … most people don’t take any notice of the doctor's advice!” we can infer that______.

(C) many of Jack’s clients have sought for his help more than once

48.48-51題為題組 Do you know the meaning of the word “relationship”? Here is an easy way of understanding it. Whenever two people come together, even for a brief moment, they exchange looks, feelings, thoughts, ideas, and energy. Their relationship is how they interact with each other. Everything that happens in the world happens through relationships. We human beings need to love and be loved, and this will come from our relationship with others. Accordingly, anyone who wishes to love and be loved will want to establish lasting relationships. Here are a few tips to help us create enduring relationships. First, know our steps. The relationship between two people is like the art of dancing. Before we can dance with a partner, we need to be able to dance by ourselves. We need to feel the rhythm of the music, hear how it inspires us to move and learn our unique style of movement and expression. Second, trust. As the key building block for enduring relationships, trust is a bond that evolves as two persons get to know each other and experience safety in opening their hearts. Trust develops when we respect each other’s needs and develop a history of common experience and caring. Third, be intimate. While intimacy is often limited to the sexual bond, we can be intimate with many people without sexuality. That is, by relating heart to heart. We need to be seen and known by another person. In this way, intimacy enables us to thrive and grow. Lastly, treat relationship as an organism. A new relationship is like an embryo that requires time, care and attention to grow into whatever may evolve. In our proper relationship with others, we will be known and seen for who we are, and love will come out of the seeing and the knowing.
【題組】 48. The author writes the above passage chiefly to______.
(A) encourage readers to build blocks for intimacy
(B) tell readers that things happen through feelings
(C) help readers establish sound relationships
(D) urge readers to become expert dancers

49.【題組】49. The word tips in the second paragraph refers to______.
(A) fees
(B) services
(C) limitations
(D) suggestions

50.【題組】50. According to the passage, which of the following is true?
(A) Intimacy is limited to the sexual bond.
(B) “Trust” blocks the way to durable relationships.
(C) If you do not dance, you cannot establish relationships.
(D) Exposure of one’s inner thoughts is essential for enduring relationships.

51.【題組】51. The love we desire will come from all of the following EXCEPT .
(A) being fond of the embryo
(B) interacting with people
(C) trusting our friends
(D) being intimate with others

52.52-55題為題組 Penghu, Nov.24—Two Russians, a father and a son, were rescued Saturday near the Penghu Islands off southwestern Taiwan after their sailboat broke down and began drifting. Medvedev Vladimir, 43, and his son, Maxsine, 14, sailed from an unnamed eastern Russian seaport on August 18, to begin an ambitious around-the-world cruise. Their voyage, down the coastline of northeastern mainland China, through the East China Sea, then down the Taiwan Strait and into the South China Sea, had been smooth until four days ago when the mainsail of their twin-mast sailboat “Kawasaki” was smashed by strong winds on the high seas. The father-and-son team started the inboard engine. However, after less than two days, the engine broke down. Near the “black ditch” of Penghu, battered by winds of up to 70 knots, the rear sail was torn into shreds. The rudder also stopped responding. Surprised by the father and son’s “pale faces” and their battered vessel, the Penghu police and fishers in Paisha rescued them. Speaking only limited English, the Vladimirs spent five hours trying to explain their presence. It is not immediately known whether the “Kawasaki” can be repaired on the fishing island of Penghu, or when the Vladimirs will be able to set off again and continue their around-the-world voyage.
【題組】 52. What was the purpose of the voyage of the Vladimirs?
(A) To go around the world.
(B) To visit the Penghu Islands.
(C) To look for their lost family members.
(D) To start the inboard engine of their vessel.

53.【題組】53. Which course (direction) did the Vladimirs take to get to Penghu?
(A) East.
(B) West.
(C) South.
(D) North.

54.【題組】54. When did the “Kawasaki” first get into trouble during the voyage?
(A) Less than two days after departure from Russia.
(B) About four days before the inboard engine was started.
(C) After it had sailed from Russia for more than three months.
(D) Only after it drifted to Paisha County of the Penghu Islands.

55.【題組】55. What did the Vladimirs decide to do after they were rescued?
(A) To stay in Penghu and do some fishing.
(B) To sell the boat and return to Russia.
(C) To repair the boat and sail back to Russia.
(D) They had not made any decision yet.

簡答題 Do you know that happy folks recover from illness much more readily than people who are depressed and always complaining?

Someone else remarked that “a merry heart does good, like medicine”—and infectious laughter is often catching. Don’t you find it so? I like the anonymous verse which sums it all up: When wholesome laughter fills the air, Some ills will soon depart; For laughter is good medicine That helps to cheer the heart.
