44.44-47題為題組 Sometimes it is impossible to deliver all the mail that arrives at the post office. Perhaps there is an inadequate or illegible address and there is no return address. The post office cannot just throw the mail away, so it becomes “dead mail.” Dead mail is sent to one of the U.S. Postal Service’s dead mail offices in Atlanta, New York, Philadelphia, St. Paul, and San Francisco. Seventy-five million pieces of mail can end up in these offices in one year. The staff of the dead mail offices has a variety of ways to deal with all of these pieces of dead mail. First of all, they look for clues that can help them deliver the mail; they open packages in the hope that something inside will show where the package came from or is going to. Dead mail will also be listed on a computer so that people can call in and check to see if a missing item is there. However, all of this mail cannot simply be stored forever; there is just too much of it. When a lot of dead mail has piled up, the dead mail offices hold public auctions. Every three months, the public is invited to the offices and bins containing items found in dead mail packages are sold to the highest bidder.
【題組】 44. Which of the following is NOT mentioned as a way to deal with dead mail?
(A) To search for clues.
(B) To throw dead mail away.

(D) The Dead Mail Office
48.48-49題為題組 I wandered lonely as a cloud That floats on high o'er vales and hills, When all at once I saw a crowd, A host, of golden daffodils, Beside the lake, beneath the trees, Fluttering and dancing in the breeze. Continuous as the stars that shine And twinkle on the Milky Way, They stretched in never-ending line Along the margin of a bay: Ten thousand saw I at a glance, Tossing their heads in sprightly dance.

50.50-53題為題組 A linguist is always listening, never off-duty. Once I invited a group of friends round to my house, telling them that I was going to record their speech. I said I was interested in their regional accents, and that it would take only a few minutes. Thus, on one evening, three people turned up at my house and were shown into my front room. When they saw the room they were a bit alarmed, for it was laid out as a studio. In front of each easy chair there was a microphone at head height, with wires leading to a tape-recorder in the middle of the floor. They sat down, rather nervously, and I explained that all I wanted was for them to count from one to twenty. Then we could relax and have a drink. I turned on the tape-recorder and each in turn solemnly counted from one to twenty in their best accent. When it was over, I turned the tape-recorder off and brought round the drinks. I was sternly criticized for having such an idiotic job, and for the rest of the evening there was general jolly conversation—spoilt only by the fact that I had to take a telephone call in another room, which unfortunately lasted some time. Or at least that was how it would appear. For, of course, the microphones were not connected to the tape-recorder in the middle of the room at all but to another one, which was turning happily away in the kitchen. The participants, having seen the visible tape-recorder turned off, paid no more attention to the microphones which stayed in front of their chairs, only a few inches from their mouths, thus giving excellent sound quality. And my lengthy absence meant that I was able to obtain as natural a piece of conversation as it would be possible to find. I should add, perhaps, that I did tell my friends what had happened to them, after the event was over, and gave them the option of destroying the tape. None of them wanted to—though for some years afterwards I was left in no doubt that I was morally obliged to them, in the sense that it always seemed to be my round when it came to the buying of drinks. Linguistic research can be a very expensive business.
【題組】 50. Why did the author ask his friends to count from one to twenty?
(A) He wanted them to think that was all he wanted to record.
(B) He wanted to record how they pronounced numbers.
(C) He had to check whether his tape-recorder was working.
(D) He wanted to discover who had the best accent.
51.【題組】51. Why did the author leave the room in the middle of the evening?
(A) He had to make a phone call to order some drinks.
(B) He didn’t like to be criticized for being idiotic.
(C) He wanted to turn off a tape recorder in another room.
(D) He wanted the others to have a conversation without him.
52.【題組】52. How did the author have the conversation recorded?
(A) On the tape-recorder in the middle of the floor.
(B) Through hidden microphones.
(C) On a tape-recorder in another room.
(D) In a studio.
53.【題組】53. How did his friends react when the author told them what he had done?
(A) They wanted him to destroy the recordings he had made.
(B) They didn’t really feel offended.
(C) They were upset because they felt he had cheated them.
(D) They made him pay them for the recordings.
54.54-55題為題組 George Bernard Shaw and Winston Churchill apparently disliked each other.

He returned the tickets, enclosing a note, which said, “I shall be busy that evening. Please send me two tickets for the second night (if there is one).” There is no record of whether Shaw ever sent the tickets.

The students lost an average of 2.34 kilograms during the past two months, and the student who lost the most, the nine-year-old Howard Chang, shed more than six kilograms. “My weight dropped to 48.3 from 54.4 kilograms, and my classmates won’t be able to call me ‘porker’ anymore,” Chang said happily. “Howard calculated the calories of everything he ate during his participation in the program,” his mother said. “He would deliberate before eating even a slice of pizza because it has 350 calories,” the mother said. When asked what he most wanted to do following the accomplishment, Chang replied, “Eat at McDonald’s.”
