It was a thin gold chain with a heart dangling on it and Amy loved it the minute she saw it. Amy gave Laura a big hug and promised that she would come back to see her. But she really didn’t know if she would ever come back to the little town. She watched as Laura walked down the block, turning and waving and walking backwards until she got to the corner. Mama was hurrying her. Amy made sure her gold bracelet was secure on her wrist. Then she put on both her sweater and her coat so that she wouldn’t have to carry them. They could take only what they could carry, and her two suitcases were already full. Mama took a last look around the house, going from room to room. Amy followed her, trying to recall how each one had looked when they were filled with furniture and rugs and pictures and books. They went out for a last look at the garden Papa loved. If he were here now, Amy knew he would pick one of the prettiest carnations and gave it to Mama. She would beam and put it in her best crystal vase. But now the garden looked shabby and bare. It looked the way Amy felt--lonely and abandoned.

44. 44-47為題組 In the last several decades, the western world has been rediscovering the soybean, a plant whose use dates before recorded history in Asia. For thousands of years, the Chinese have valued highly the soybean, considering it one of the five important grains (along with rice, millet, barley, and wheat). Since it is cheap to produce and rich in protein, and has many uses, the soybean could provide food to the world’s growing population. Besides, soybeans can be fed to a variety of other animals ranging from livestock to silk worms. The soybean is an almost perfect source of protein. If you are a vegetarian, or if your diet includes little meat, soy protein is a good alternative, and may even be essential to maintaining your health. The soybean’s high fiber content is beneficial in preventing digestive disorders. The soybean is free of cholesterol, and more importantly, the soy oil contains some special substances, called Omega 3 fatty acids, which reduce cholesterol and prevent blood from clotting in human body. Research shows that consuming a minimum of 25 grams of soy protein a day can lower blood cholesterol levels in people with high cholesterol problems. In view of all these strengths, in the 1930s the United States and Canada undertook a research project in which they managed to breed an especially nutritious soybean with a high oil content. Since then, the United States has become the world’s largest producer of soybeans and has exported much of its soybean produce. In recent years, the soybean has been used in making many different foods and has become the atom of health food. Health-conscious Americans are adding tofu, the most popular soybean product, to salads and using it as a meat substitute. In the health food stores of major cities, it is now possible to buy tofu burgers and even tofu hot dogs.
【題組】44. What is the main idea of the passage?
(A) Asians have used soybean produce for thousands of years.
(B) Health-conscious Americans are using more tofu in their diet.
(C) The soybean provides food for the world’s growing population.
(D) The soybean is healthful and has become popular in the western world.

45.【題組】45. One major advantage of the soybean as a food source is that _____.
(A) it is free of oil
(B) it is cheap to produce
(C) it is low in protein
(D) it is high in cholesterol

46.【題組】46. The soybean helps to keep cholesterol down mainly because it contains _______ .
(A) rich protein
(B) rich vitamin
(C) some fatty acids
(D) high fiber content

47.【題組】47. According to the passage, which of the following statements is true?
(A) Tofu is a rich protein source.
(B) Soybean protein prevents digestive problems.
(C) The United States exports most of its soybean produce to Canada.
(D) Vegetarians should eat less than 25 grams of soy protein every day.

48.48-51為題組 Big brothers and sisters usually develop leadership tendencies early in life, mainly because of the responsibilities for younger children given to them by their parents. Firstborns, under normal circumstances, are usually the most strongly motivated toward achievement. This is mainly a result of parental expectations. Research also suggests that firstborn children generally become more conservative than other children because they receive most of the parental discipline. Used to caring for others, they are more likely to move toward such leadership professions as teaching and politics. Less social and flexible because they become accustomed in the very early years to acting alone, they may have difficulty making close friends. By contrast, later children are more likely to be more relaxed and sociable because their parents are more relaxed. However, later children are often less ambitious and may be uncomfortable making decisions for others. This may help explain why younger children tend to favor the creative fields such as music, art, and writing. Later children may make good salespersons because persuasion may have been the only tool they had to deal with older siblings. Younger children tend to remain forever “the baby,” enjoyable to be around, but at times overdependent on others.
【題組】48. The passage is mainly about _______.
(A) the personality tendencies of older children
(B) the personality tendencies of younger children
(C) the relation between birth rank and job success
(D) the relation between birth rank and personality

49.【題組】49. According to the passage, the first child tends to be______.
(A) creative

(D) conservative

50.【題組】50. It can be inferred from the passage that a younger child is more likely to be a good ______.
(A) librarian
(B) doctor
(C) writer
(D) teacher

51.【題組】51. From the passage, we learn that _______.
(A) children’s personalities depend entirely on parental attitudes
(B) artists do not usually like to make decisions for other people
(C) older children are used to taking care of people and are fun to be with
(D) younger children are particularly weak in delivering a speech in public

52. 52-55為題組 According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), medical waste is a major source of dioxin pollution in the country. Linked to the dioxin issue is the use of PVC plastic, which is widely used in the production of blood bags, plastic tubing, and other products in hospitals and health clinics. Dioxin is an unwanted byproduct that is created when PVC is burned. Dioxin travels by air currents and settles onto grass, which is then eaten by cows and chickens in their feed. We eat polluted dairy products and meat and take the dioxin into our bodies, where it is stored in our fat for years and builds up over time. In this way, dioxin is globally distributed, and as a consequence, every member of the human population is constantly exposed to this poisonous substance. This poses special problems for childbearing women, who pass dioxin to an unborn baby or to a breastfeeding baby. In fact, the infant is the most vulnerable member of society to this chemical. Plastics used to account for as little as 10% of medical waste in the late 1970s, before disposables began rapidly replacing reusables. They now make up as much as 30%. The EPA estimates that the average levels of dioxin in all Americans are so high that we can expect to see a variety of health effects, including cancer. Given the harm caused by the burning of medical waste, physicians and nurses have the responsibility to take a lead in reducing the use of plastics in the hospitals. After all, they can’t be treating cancer on the inside of hospitals and contributing to it on the outside.
【題組】52. What is the major message the author is trying to convey to readers?
(A) All people, especially those working in the hospitals, should reduce the use of plastics.
(B) Americans should lead the world to fight dioxin pollution, or mankind will die out soon.
(C) We had better eat more vegetables than meat in order to reduce the risk of dioxin pollution.
(D) We had better not breastfeed our babies, since babies are most likely to be poisoned by dioxin.

53.【題組】53. Dioxin is produced _______ .
(A) when plastics are burned
(B) in the making of hospital blood bags
(C) when reusables are disposed of
(D) in the handling of all kinds of medical waste

54.【題組】54. What does it in the last line refer to?
(A) Dioxin.
(B) Cancer.
(C) Medical waste.
(D) Use of plastics.

55.【題組】55. Which of the following statements can be inferred from the article?
(A) Living in the countryside will keep one safe from dioxin poisoning.
(B) Dioxin can be released from our bodies, if we drink a lot of clean, pure water.
(C) Using reusables as people did in the old days will help lessen dioxin pollution.
(D) You have to lose weight, or the amount of dioxin in your body fat will kill you.

It takes twice as many muscles to frown as it does to smile. Moreover, we do not have to “learn” to do it. Although babies imitate the facial expressions they see, smiling isn’t just learned by imitation. Children born blind never see anybody smile, but they show the same kinds of smiles under the same situations as sighted people. Smiling is of great help to us. Some studies suggest that the act of shaping our mouths into a smile (creating a “physical smile”) can help us see the brighter, funnier side of things. People wearing the physical smile tend to feel happier. In addition, smiles signal to others that we are people who might be nice to talk to and work with—and that can help us make friends. Unfortunately, sometimes you may find it difficult to smile. Anything from getting a bad grade on a test to losing an important game can make you feel sad. In such hard times, there seems to be no reason to smile. But there is some good part to almost every bad thing. Turning something that seems all bad into something good is one way to help you smile. Hanging around people who are positive and in good moods is another way to help you find your smile again.

【題組】1. Why is smiling physically easier than frowning?

57.【題組】2. What kind of feeling can a physical smile help to create?
58.【題組】3. In what aspect can smiling help a person in his social life?
59.【題組】4. Give one example of “hard times” mentioned in the passage.
60.【題組】5. What particular group of people are cited in the passage to show that smiling is not learned?
