16.請依下文回答第 16 題至第 20 題 Price elasticity of demand (PED) is a measure used in economics to show the relationship between a change in the quantity demanded of a particular good or service and a change in its price. More 16 , it gives the percentage change in quantity demanded in response to a one percent change in price. PED is often used when discussing price sensitivity in economics. In general, the demand for a good is said to be elastic, or 17 price changes,when its PED is greater than one. That is, changes in price have a relatively large effect on the quantity of a good demanded. 18 , the demand for a good is said to be inelastic when the PED is less than one. In such cases, a large change in price is accompanied by a small amount of change in quantity demanded. Price elasticities are almost always negative, although analysts tend to ignore the sign even though this can lead to ambiguity. According to the law of demand, when price goes up, demand goes down and vice versa. Thus, only goods which do not 19 the law of demand, such as Veblen goods for their exclusive nature and appeal as a status symbol, have a positive PED. A firm’s revenue is maximized when price is set so that the PED is exactly one. Therefore, knowing PED helps the firm decide whether to raise, lower, or 20 price, which would require the firm to charge consumers different prices for the same product. Typically, if demand is elastic, revenue is gained by reducing price, but if demand is inelastic, revenue is gained by raising price.

21.請依下文回答第 21 題至第 25 題 Kraken, a 17-year-old rollercoaster at SeaWorld Orlando, an amusement park in Florida, reopened recently after several months of refurbishment. That, in itself, is unusual. The normal fate of old rides is demolition and replacement by new ones offering fresh thrills. More unusual still is that Kraken, though it had not undergone any physical upgrade during its refurbishment, had customers queuing eagerly to get on it as though it were a brand new offering. SeaWorld Orlando is the latest in a string of parks to turn to virtual reality (VR) to recycle rollercoasters of days past. In the case of Kraken, the rider wears a headset that takes him on an underwater journey which matches the coaster’s movements, dodging prehistoric sea creatures such as pliosaurs, careering down into an underwater canyon, and straining to escape the clutches of the terrible, tentacled monster after which the ride is named. Building a new ride is pricy, even for a big attraction like SeaWorld. For small parks, with low budgets, it can be an existential bet. VR, though, has given parks an opportunity to breathe new life into old rides, saving money as they do so. Adding VR to a rollercoaster does, however, present challenges beyond those involved when the headset wearer is either stationary or using his own muscles to move around. Matching what is seen with the sensation of movement is crucial. Get it wrong and the result is nausea. Yet, when executed properly, the pairing of rollercoasters and VR, two things that can both, by themselves, be nauseating experiences, actually helps reduce the risk of sickness. The VR augmentation of rides is unlikely to remain limited to rollercoasters. Six Flags, one of the world’s biggest amusement-park companies, is experimenting with adding VR to drop towers—devices in which the rider experiences several seconds of free-fall before being decelerated for a safe landing. Park visitors, then, should expect to don more headsets when they strap in for their favorite rides.
