         Whenever I set foot on the soil of Rwanda, a country in east-central Africa, I feel as if I have entered paradise: green hills, red earth, sparkling rivers and mountain lakes.

Although located close to the equator, Rwanda’s “thousand hills,”     27     from 1,500 m to 2,500 m in height, ensure that the temperature is pleasant all year around. And being a tiny country, everything in Rwanda is     28     in a few hours and the interesting spots can be explored comfortably in a couple of weeks. But     29    , Rwanda is a symbol of the triumph of the human spirit over evil. Though it was once known to the world for the 1994 tribal conflict that resulted in about one million deaths, Rwanda has     30     the mass killing. Now it is healing and prospering and greets visitors with open arms.

        An old man who lived in a small side street of Mumbai had to put up with the nuisance of boys playing cricket and making a lot of noise outside his house, at night.
        One evening when the boys were particularly  31  , he went out to talk to them. He explained that he had just retired and was happiest when he could see or hear boys playing his   32   game, cricket. He would therefore give them 25 rupees each week to play in the street at night. The boys were thrilled, for they could hardly believe that they were being paid to do something they   33  !
        At the end of the first two weeks, the boys came to the old man’s house, and went away   34   with their 25 rupees. The third week when they came back, however, the old man said he had   35   money and sent them away with only 15 rupees. The fourth week, the man said he had not yet received his   36     from the government and gave them only 10 rupees. The boys were very   37  , but there was not much they could do about it.
        At the end of the fifth week, the boys came back again and knocked at the old man’s house, waiting for their   38  . Slowly, the door opened and the old man appeared. He apologized that he could not afford to pay them 25 rupees as he had   39  , but said he would give them five rupees each week without fail.
        This was really too much for the boys. “You expect us to play seven days a week for   40   five rupees!” they yelled. “No way!”
        They stormed away and never played on the street again.

        Most American kids love Halloween treats, but a bucket of Halloween candy can be a dentist’s nightmare. Some parents try to get rid of half of the candy after their children go to bed, but dentists say parents also need to separate the good kinds of treats from the bad.
        It is not exactly what a child eats that truly matters, but how much time it stays in his mouth. According to pediatric dentist Dr. Kaneta Lott, the most damaging stuff is something that is sticky or very hard and thus stays in the mouth for a long time. This is because we all have bacteria in our mouths. When we eat, the bacteria take our food as their food and produce an acid that destroys the surface of the teeth, causing cavities to form. The longer the food stays in the mouth, the more likely cavities will develop. Therefore, potato chips are worse than candy because they get stuck between teeth. For the same reason, raisins and crackers are not the best choice. Hard candies take a long time to consume and are also a bad choice for Halloween treats.
        If children really love candy, dentists recommend that they eat chocolate instead. Unlike hard candies, chocolate dissolves quickly in the mouth. Besides, chocolate contains tannins, which help to kill some of the bacteria in the mouth. But no matter what a child eats, brushing after each meal is still the best way to fight cavities.

【題組】41. What is the main purpose of this passage?
(A) To discuss how cavities can be treated.
(B) To point out the problems with Halloween celebrations.
(C) To tell parents what sweets are less damaging to their children’s teeth.
(D) To teach parents the meaning of Halloween candies for their children.

42.【題組】42. Why are hard candies especially bad for teeth?
(A) They may break the child’s teeth.
(B) They contain too much sugar.
(C) They help bacteria to produce tannins.
(D) They stay in the mouth for a long time.

43.【題組】43. According to the passage, which of the following is a better choice for Halloween treats?
(A) Chocolate.
(B) Crackers.
(C) Raisins.
(D) Potato chips.

44.【題組】44. According to the passage, which of the following is true of tannins?
(A) They are produced when the bacteria digest the food.
(B) They help to get rid of some bacteria in the mouth.
(C) They help chocolate to dissolve more quickly.
(D) They destroy the surface of the teeth.

        The largest television network in America is not ABC, CBS, or Fox. Nor is it one of the cable networks such as CNN, which carries only news and news stories. It is not ESPN, the all-sports cable network, or even MTV, which is famous for its music videos. Rather it is PBS, Public Broadcasting System, a non-profit public broadcasting TV service. PBS has 349 member television stations in the U.S. and some member stations by cable in Canada.
        PBS only attracts a minority of all TV viewers, about 2 percent. The industry leader, NBC, however, attracts 11 percent of viewers. But the growth of public television in the past two decades has been dramatic. This is especially noteworthy when one considers that public television stations must often survive on very limited budgets, on viewers’ donations, and on private foundations and some governmental funding.
        The level of quality of PBS programs, whether in national and international news, entertainment, or education, is excellent. Almost a whole generation of children throughout the world is familiar with Sesame Street and the characters of The Muppet Show. PBS is especially well known for the quality of its many educational TV programs. Over 95 percent of all public television stations have tele-courses. These courses are accepted and supported by more than 1,800 colleges and universities throughout the US. Each year, over a quarter of a million students take courses this way.

        Last week Jay McCarroll and The HSUS (The Humane Society of the United States) made a bold fur-free statement on the runway, marking a new chapter for the fashion industry and animal protection. The encouraging response to McCarroll’s show confirmed that change is happening in fashion.
        McCarroll has good reasons for rejecting fur. Each year, tens of millions of animals, including dogs and cats, needlessly suffer and die to fuel the fur industry. But what did Jay McCarroll use in place of fur? “I have patchwork pieces that contain all sorts of combinations of fabrics. The rest is cotton, nylon, polyester...you name it. I even have some stuff made out of bamboo/cotton blend. Anything but fur and leather,” he told Fashion Wire Daily.
        “So many people want to protect animals and live their lives without causing unnecessary cruelty. More than two thirds of Americans have pets, and we share a bond with animals every day. Saying no to fur can help millions of animals, and we want to show our respect to leading designers like Jay who embrace compassion as the fashion,” said Michael Markarian, executive vice president of The HSUS. “It is great to see leaders in the fashion industry recognizing that the animals need their fur more than we do.”

【題組】49. Which of the following is true about Jay McCarroll?
(A) He is a famous fashion designer.
(B) He is the executive vice president of the HSUS.
(C) He is an editor of Fashion Wire Daily.
(D) He is the head of an animal protection organization.

50.【題組】50. What does “a new chapter” in line 2, paragraph 1 mean?
(A) A new unit of a book.
(B) The beginning of a new trend.
(C) The latest issue of a magazine.
(D) A newly established organization.

51.【題組】51. Which of the following is NOT recommended for clothing by Jay McCarroll?
(A) Polyester.
(B) Bamboo.
(C) Leather.
(D) Patchwork pieces.

52.【題組】52. What do we learn from this passage?
(A) Human beings depend emotionally on animals.
(B) Fashion can go hand in hand with compassion for life.
(C) Fur is more effective than bamboo/cotton blend for clothing.
(D) Fur is more expensive than other materials for fashion designers.

        Twenty years ago, most experts believed that differences in how boys and girls behaved were mainly due to differences in how they were treated by their parents, teachers, and friends. It’s hard to cling to that belief today. Recent research has shown that there are biological differences between boys and girls. Understanding these differences is important in raising and educating children.
        For example, girls are born with more sensitive hearing than boys, and the difference increases as kids grow up. So when a grown man speaks to a girl in what he thinks is a normal voice, she may hear it as yelling. Conversely, boys who appear to be inattentive in class may just be sitting too far away to hear the teacher.
        Likewise, girls are better in their expression of feelings. Studies reveal that negative emotions are seated in an area of the brain called the amygdala. Girls develop an early connection between this area and the cerebral cortex, enabling them to talk about their feelings. In boys these links develop later. So if you ask a troubled adolescent boy to tell you what his feelings are, he often cannot say much.
        Dr. Sax, a proponent of single-sex education, points out that keeping boys and girls separate in the classroom has yielded striking educational, social, and interpersonal benefits. Therefore, parents and teachers should try to recognize, understand, and make use of the biological differences that make a girl a girl, and a boy a boy.

【題組】53. What is the main idea of the passage?
(A) Boys tend to pay less attention in class than girls.
(B) Girls are better than boys in their ability to detect sounds.
(C) Boys and girls behave differently because of biological differences.
(D) Single-sex schools are not good because they keep boys and girls separate.

54.【題組】54. Why do girls express negative feelings better than boys?
(A) Girls are more emotional than boys.
(B) Girls have more brain cells than boys.
(C) The amygdala is located in different areas of the brain for boys and girls.
(D) The links between certain parts of the brain develop earlier in girls than in boys.

55.【題組】55. Which of the following does the author believe?
(A) Girls need more training in communication.
(B) Boys and girls should be educated in different ways.
(C) Parents should pay more attention to boys.
(D) Sex differences should be ignored in education.

56.【題組】56. What does the phrase “cling to” in the first paragraph mean?
(A) maintain
(B) abandon
(C) evaluate
(D) challenge
