41. 41-43題為題組 One of the most unusual graduation speakers of the 1983 commencement season was not a person at all. The speaker was Robot Redford, a robot who delivered the commencement address at a community college in suburban Maryland. The speaker, carefully programmed, arrived on the stage under its own power and proceeded to tell the audience of 658 graduates, their families, and friends that they would have to learn to work with robots and technology to solve society’s problems. The robot described itself as an extension of a person to help humans increase the workload. Although this particular robot can be programmed to speak, the voice heard wasn’t that of the robot, because it was feared that the robot’s voice was not loud enough to carry throughout the hall. An amplified voice of a human was used instead, while the listeners watched the robot. Robot Redford was followed by a person, William Bakaleinikoff, who spoke about the need for cooperation between people and technology. Mr. Bakaleinikoff’s experience with his topic included the fact that he had created Robot Redford and had provided the voice for the robot’s words to the graduates. There was quite a bit of controversy over the choice of a robot as a commencement speaker. Some students thought it was insensitive and degrading to use a robot. Others thought the idea was clever and innovative. “I’ll never forget this speech,” said one graduate. “You forget a political leader, but you won’t forget a robot.”
【題組】41. Robot Redford’s speech was discussed in this article mainly because_______.
(A) it was political

(A) Robot Redford was a talking machine.

43.【題組】43. Which of the following statements can be supported by the passage?

(B) Robot Redford was the brainchild of William Bakaleinikoff.

44. 44-46題為題組 Summers with father were always enjoyable. Swimming, hiking, boating, fishing--the days were not long enough to contain all of our activities. There never seemed to be enough time to go to church, which disturbed some friends and relatives. Accused of neglecting this part of our education, my father still instituted a summer school for my brother and me. His summer course included ancient history, which Papa felt our schools neglected, and navigation, in which we first had a formal examination in the dining room, part of which consisted of tying several knots in a given time limit. Then we were each separately sent on what was grandly referred to as a cruise in my father’s 18-foot boat, spending the night on board, and loaded down, according to my mother, with enough food for a week. I remember that on my cruise I was required to formally plot our course, using the tide table, even though our goal was an island I could see quite clearly across the water in the distance.

47.47-50題為題組 PARIS, Dec. 9 -- Paris will be given a new Eiffel Tower--but made of wood--for the millennium, city mayor Jean Tiberi said Tuesday, presenting a program of celebration for the year 2,000 which would transform the “city of light” into the “capital of light.” The new structure will be 200 meters high, 100 meters shorter than the cast-iron Eiffel Tower built 100 years ago. It will be made of timber as an ecological symbol of “the right to a dignified life on a protected Earth,” said architects Normier, Henni and Lelievre, who were also responsible for the Europe section at the Seville exhibition. The tower, of pinewood, will be built on eight pillars and will be topped with a flower of five metal petals of 700 square meters each. The structure, to be erected in the redeveloped areas of the capital’s 13th district, will cost 250 million francs (US$42 million). Tiberi also said that Paris would be placed under the sign of the lights of “culture and life” and “intelligence.” “If, in 1900, Paris was consecrated the ‘city of light’, it will become the ‘capital of light’ for the millennium,” Tiberi said. The mayor said new buildings would be illuminated, notably along the banks of the Seine, which would become a luminous strip, while Notre Dame Cathedral would be lit from the inside to show off its stained glass windows. A laser clock would be installed on top of the Arc de Triomphe at the top of the Champs Elysees and three laser beams would pick out the hands showing the hours, minutes and seconds in the millennium countdown, Tiberi said. A giant egg-timer will be set up in the Place de la Concorde and its sand will begin running after a solar eclipse scheduled on April 11, 1999.
【題組】47. Why is Paris building a new Eiffel Tower?
(A) The old Eiffel Tower must be torn down.
