35. Repetition, we are told, is an evil in writing. It seems that we are told this practically from the time we begin to write. Yet the skillful writer instinctively recognizes that carefully repeating certain key words and phrases can help tie his ideas together. For example, the mathematician Norbert Wiener begins his discussion of Brownian motion in this way: “To understand the Brownian motion, let us imagine a push-ball in a field in which a crowd is milling around. Various people in the crowd will run into the push-ball and will move it about. Some will push in one direction and some in another.” To use repletion creatively, you repeat certain words of phrases in order to keep the reader’s mind firmly on the subject.

(C) Crowd
(D) Skillful Writing
36.【題組】36. In this passage, “evil” can mean

37.Genesee (1985) defines Canadian immersion programs as those in which the target language is used for teaching regular school subjects. Content-Based Instruction is generally seen as designed for adult learners only—adults studying language for special purposes. A growing number of universities are offering Language for Specific Purposes courses in foreign languages in a variety of disciplines, particularly in business. To further define Content-Based Instruction, Met (1999) describes a continuum of programmatic possibilities for integrating language and content leaning, ranging from the most content-driven language programs on one end of the continuum to those that are primarily language-driven on the other.
【題組】37. In this passage, 1985 indicates
(A) the year of the publication of a work written by a scholar whose last name is Genesee.

40.When Discarding Paper Waste

43.Five planets are visible to the naked eye. With the aid of the telescope, Uranus was added to the list in the 18th century, and in the 19th century, Neptune. Astronomers predicted an even more distant planet would be found. In 1930, this ninth planet was discovered and named Pluto. Recently, some astronomers have questioned whether Pluto is a true “planet” or not. It is even smaller than seven of the moons circling other planet, including Earth’s moon. Its orbit is so strange that for a 20-year period during its long 248-year revolution around the sun, Pluto is actually closer to the sun than is Neptune, a feat no other planet comes even close to. Despite these anomalies, most members of the astronomical society still consider Pluto the ninth planet.
【題組】43.With the discovery of Pluto, how many planets are now visible to the naked eye?
(A) Five
(C) Eight
(D) Nine

46.To resolve a dispute means to turn opposing positions into a single outcome. The two parties may choose to focus their attention on one or more of three basic factors. They may seek to (1) reconcile their interests, (2) determine who is right, and/or (3) determine who is more powerful. 
A. Interests are needs, desires, concerns, fears, the things one cares about or wants. They provide the foundation for a person’s or an organization’s position in a dispute. In dispute, not only do the interests of one party not coincide with those of the other party, but they are in conflict. For example, the director of sales for an electronics company gets into a dispute with the director of manufacturing over the number of TV models to produce. The director of sales wants to produce more models because her interest is in selling TV sets; more models mean more choice for consumers and hence increased sales. The director of manufacturing, however, wants to produce fewer models. His interest is in decreasing manufacturing costs and more models mean higher costs. 
B. Reconciling such interests is not easy. It involves probing for deeply rooted concerns, devising creative solutions, and making trade-offs and compromises where interests are opposed. The most common procedure for doing this is negotiation; the act of communication intended to reach agreement. Another interest-based procedure is mediation, in which a third party assists the disputes, the two sides in the dispute, in reaching agreement.
 C. By no means do all negotiations (or mediations) focus on reconciling interests. Some negotiations focus on determining who is right, such as when two lawyers argue about whose case has the greater merit. Other negotiations focus on determining who is more powerful, such as when quarrelling neighbors or nations exchange threats and counter threats. Often negotiations involve a mix of all three—some attempts to satisfy interests, some discussion or rights, and some references to relative power. 
D. It is often complicated to attempt to determine who is right in a dispute. Although it is usually straightforward where rights are formalized in law, other rights take the form of unwritten but socially accepted standards of behavior, such as reciprocity, precedent, equality, and seniority. There are often different—and sometimes contradictory—standards that apply to rights. Reaching agreement on rights, where the outcome will determine who gets what, can often be so difficult that the parties frequently turn to a third party to determine who is right. The most typical rights procedure is adjudication, in which disputants present evidence and arguments to a neutral third party who has the power to make a decision that must be followed by both disputants. (In mediation, by contrast, the third party does not have the power to decide the dispute.) Public adjudication is provided by courts and administrative agencies. Private adjudication is provided by arbitrators. 
E. A third way to resolve a dispute is on the basis of power. We define power, somewhat narrowly, as the ability to pressure someone to do something he would not otherwise do. Exercising power takes two common forms: acts of aggression, such as physical attack, and withholding the benefits that derive from a relationship, as when employees stop working in a strike.
