They often concern very strong or clever people who come from humble backgrounds. These people usually triumph over their enemies because of their wit and their great energy. Folk tales are both down-to-earth and highly imaginative. Many folk tales originally had some basis in fact and grew out of the lives of real people. They changed, however, as they were told and retold. A man might once have fought a bear, for example, and the tales told about him might make him into the greatest bear fighter who ever lived. Through the power of imagination, folk tales can turn humble people into heroes. Many folk tales are also tall tales—stories of unbelievable events told with perfect seriousness. A tall tale, in other words, is a story in which the truth has been exaggerated. A culture’s folk tales, fables, songs, and proverbs are an important part of its literature. By reading and listening to folk tales, we may gain a better understanding of the true values, beliefs, and goals of a people.

44. 44-46為題組 It used to be that athletes and VIPs gave away their signatures for free, and a signed baseball or photograph would just sit on a shelf and collect dust. But nowadays, autographs (signatures) are big business. Many athletes and VIPs demand payment for their signatures, and many people are willing to pay. Autograph dealers can be found in almost any sizable city, and collectors may get hundreds, even thousands, of dollars for things signed by anyone from Mozart to Madonna, Thomas Jefferson to JFK. A 54-page manuscript written by Albert Einstein recently was sold for $398,500 at Christie’s in New York. And in 1994, Microsoft CEO (chief executive officer) Bill Gates paid $30.8 million for a handwritten notebook penned by Leonardo da Vinci. Meanwhile, fans across the U.S. are flocking to sports shows to have their heroes sign anything from a bat to a box of cereal. What is the real reason many collectors want autographs? To connect with someone famous, or maybe even to imagine themselves as the hero they admire.

47.47-50為題組 In Taiwan much time and energy are spent on getting a proper education and finding a good job. As a result, health concerns have been neglected. A new study by the Department of Health in Taiwan shows that more than half of the adult population in Taiwan lacks an understanding of important health problems. More than 2,000 adults took part in the survey to find out about their knowledge of diet, healthcare, disease control, and medication. Surprisingly, only 51 percent of the people surveyed understand that the common cold has no cure. Colds are caused by viruses, not bacteria, so taking medicine is absolutely no use at all. The problem is made worse by doctors who give their patients large doses of useless drugs. More than two-thirds believe that it is only the nicotine in cigarettes rather than the other chemicals that cause cancer. These people believe that if they smoke “light” cigarettes with less nicotine, they will not get cancer. Since 26 percent of Taiwanese adults smoke, such a misunderstanding will lead to more illness, suffering, and early death. But the outlook for health education in Taiwan is not all negative. The survey concludes that younger Taiwanese have a better understanding of health concerns than their parents, while senior citizens have the least understanding among the three age groups.
【題組】47. Recently a health survey was carried out in Taiwan to determine ______.
(A) why people ignore their health
(B) when to teach health education
(C) what people know about health
(D) who is more likely to become ill

48.【題組】48. According to the article, which of the following is TRUE about medicines for colds?
(A) They can cure the common cold.
(B) Many Taiwanese take too many of them.
(C) Doctors often refuse to sell them.
(D) About 51 percent of patients use them.

49.【題組】49. According to the survey, most Taiwanese believe that ______.
(A) nicotine alone makes people fall victim to cancer
(B) only a small percentage of smokers will develop cancer
(C) smoking fewer cigarettes decreases the risk of cancer
(D) other chemicals besides nicotine cause lung diseases

50.50. The results of the survey show that ______.
(A) the health statistics in Taiwan are neglected
(B) there is hope for improvement in the younger generation
(C) the older generation depends on the healthcare system
(D) many people value a career over their health

51. 51-55為題組 “I have a regular film camera but I just don’t use it much,” said Ms. Lowery, 23, a computer programmer. “When I got married last year, I had all these pictures that didn’t come out right. With digital cameras, you aren’t spending money on film for wasted pictures,” she said. And there are plenty of models from which to choose: from simple $200 point-and-shoot snappers to $1,000 wonders with all the features that any advanced amateur could want. The wide selection is a sure sign that in many consumers’ minds, digital cameras have risen from mere gadgets to must-have items. Digital cameras offer more than just the instant previewing of pictures on small color screens. They can store dozens, sometimes hundreds, of images that can be printed easily at home or sent by e-mail. Although there are extra costs involved in going digital—the cost of memory cards for storage and the special paper for printing—many buyers have been willing to make the switch. Although about 90 percent of American households still use film cameras, digital cameras are capturing a growing share of the consumer market. And the number of digital-camera households, now at about 10 percent, is certain to grow, as manufacturers introduce more and more cameras whose quality is as good as film cameras. Soon, even professionals will use them. Salesmen expect digital cameras to be popular gifts this holiday season. “They are very hot this year,” said Yossi Fogel at B & H Photo in New York. “The prices have come down and the quality has gone up. Who wants to travel with 30 rolls of film? With a large memory card to store pictures, you can shoot and shoot and never have to worry about changing a roll. How many times have you missed a picture because you failed to reload the film?”
【題組】51. Which of the following is NOT an advantage of the digital camera over the film camera?
(A) The user has to spend additional money for it.
(B) It comes in many models for the customer.
(C) It saves money from unwanted pictures.
(D) Its pictures can be sent by e-mail.

52.【題組】52. According to this passage, the American households using digital cameras will increase if ______.
(A) their producers invest more money
(B) their operation becomes simpler
(C) their salesmen are more friendly
(D) their quality keeps improving

53.【題組】53. Which of the following is NOT TRUE about film cameras? Their pictures can be printed at a photo shop.
(B) Their pictures can be enlarged as desired.
(C) Their pictures can be seen before they are printed.
(D) Their pictures can be stored for a long time.

54.【題組】54. According to this article, digital cameras nowadays are used mainly by _______.
(A) professionals
(B) amateurs
(C) housewives
(D) students

55.【題組】55. With a digital camera, it is necessary to ______.
(A) carry a lot of film
(B) print pictures at a photo shop
(C) have a memory card
(D) spend more time in using it

第貳部份:非選擇題 一、簡答題(10%) 說明︰1.閱讀下面這篇文章,然後簡答下列問題。答案必須寫在「答案卷」上。 2.請依序作答,並標明題號。答案應簡明扼要,只寫重要詞彙(key words),約 二至三個英文單詞(words)。每題2分,共10分。 注意:請勿抄下整句或整行,否則不予計分。 Do women really use language differently from men? Over the years, researchers have given different answers to this question. In the legends of some cultures, it is even claimed that men and women speak different languages. If this were true, how could boys communicate with their mothers? One research report shows men and women use much the same grammar and vocabulary in English, although each sex uses certain kinds of words and structures more frequently than the other. Most men use more swear words, while far more women use adjectives such as “super” and “lovely,” and exclamations such as “Goodness me!” and “Oh dear!” Women have been found to ask more questions, make more use of positive and encouraging “noises,” use a wider range of intonation patterns, and make greater use of the pronouns “you” and “we.” By contrast, men are much more likely to interrupt (about three times as often in some studies), to argue about what has been said, to ignore or respond poorly to what has been said, to introduce more new topics into the conversation, and to make more assertions.

【題組】1. What stories in some cultures state that men and women speak differently?

57.【題組】2. According to one research report, which two parts of English are generally shared by men and women?
58.【題組】3. What adjectives do women use more often than men?
59.【題組】4. What kind of words do men use more frequently than women?
60.【題組】5. According to some studies, how often do men interrupt as compared with women?
