Passage I. 
 I haven’t always been crippled, a fact 21 I am soundly grateful. To be whole of limb is, I know from experience, infinitely more pleasant and useful than to be crippled; and if that knowledge leaves me open to bitterness at my loss, the physical 22 I once enjoyed (though I did not enjoy it half enough) is well worth the occasional stab of regret. Though never any good at sports, I was a normally active child and young adult. I climbed trees, played hopscotch, jumped rope, skated, swam, rode my bicycle,sailed. However, I 23 team sports, spending some of the wretchedest afternoons of my life, sweaty and humiliated, behind a field-hockey stick and under a basketball hoop. I tramped alone for miles along the bridle paths that webbed the woods behind the house I grew up in. I also enjoyed dancing: I 24 through countless dim hours in the arms of one man or another under the scattered shot of light from mirrored balls, and 25 through countless more as Tab Hunter and Johnny Mathis gave way to the Rolling Stones, Credence Clearwater Revival, Cream.

26.Passage II. 
 The Anthropocene has fast become an academic 26 and has achieved a degree of public visibility in recent years. But the more the term is used, the more confusion 27 . at least for those not familiar with the niceties of the underpinning science. Roughly 28 , the Anthropocene means the "age of humans." In today’s usage, this word is defined in geological terms. Geologists examine 29 of rock called "strata", which tell a story of changes to the functioning of Earth's surface and near-surface processes, be these oceanic, biological, terrestrial, riverine, atmospheric, tectonic or chemical.

30.Passage III. 
The purpose of advertising, according to orthodox economic theory, is to provide us with information about the goods and services offered in the marketplace. Without that stream of information we consumers won't make informed choices, and Adam Smith's invisible hand will be not only invisible but also blind. We won't know when a better frozen dinner comes along’ —30 will we know where to get the best 31 on a new car. The contents of marketing messages themselves, 32 . show the simple-mindedness of that explanation. Classified ads and yellow page telephone directories would suffer if advertising were only about telling people 33 already want something where to get it and what it costs. Rather, advertising is intended to expand the pool of desires, awakening wants that would 34 otherwise~ or, as critics say, manufacturing wants that would not otherwise exist.

(D). mechanize ..

Passage IV
Pokemon just got real with this new 35 reality mobile game, Pokemon Go. The game gives players the chance to catch Pokemon 36 on a real-world view firom the phone’s camera. It’s only been out a few days but it’s already 37 a monster hit, so much so that at times the game’s service had been 38 . Like the original game,it,s all about catching and battling Pokemon, although things work a little bit differently. To catch a Pokemon, I just flick a PokeBall at it, no battling required. The Pokemon pop up at random using your phone’s GPS location, although there have been some concerns that people might 39 run into the road while trying to catch Pokemon. But it’s very easy to 40 and carried away, and there are likely to be a lot of children playing.

41.IV. Reading Comprehension (20%): Read the following passages and select the best answer for the questions that follow 
Passage I. 
 Thanks to the ubiquity of text on the Internet,not to mention the popularity of text-messaging on cell phones, we may well be reading more today than we did in tbe 1970s or 1980s, when television was our medium of choice. But it,s a different kind of reading, and behind it lies a different kind of thinkingperhaps even a new sense of the self. “We are not only what we read,” says Maryanne Wolf, a developmental psychologist at Tufts University and the author of Proust and the Squid: The Story and Science of the Reading Brain. “We are how we read.” Wolf worries that the style of reading promoted by the Net, a style that puts “efficiency” and “immediacy” above all else, may be weakening our capacity for the kind of deep reading that emerged when an earlier technology, the printing press, made long and complex works of prose commonplace. When we read online, she says, we tend to become “mere decoders of information•” Our ability to interpret text, to make the rich mental connections that form when we read deeply and without distraction, remains largely disengaged.

【題組】41. Which of the following statements is TRUE according to the passage above?
(A). The author believes that there is no difference between people in the 1970s/1980s and today in terms of the way they receive information.
(B). Television is still regarded as the main medium for people today to acquire information, whereas cell phones and the Internet are secondary in this respect.
(C). The author suggests that people today receive more information than those in the 1970s or 80s, but basically they think in similar ways.
(D). The author indicates that people today may form a new sense of self and thinking due to the change in modem information and communications technology. .

42.【題組】42. According to Maryanne Wolf, a developmental psychologist, we are" how we read." This sentence means
(A), we choose different media to gather information.
(B). the sense of self is constructed by the information we read.
(C). the sense of self depends on the interaction with those netizens we meet on the Internet.
(D). the sense of self is constructed by the technology with which we gather information. .

43.【題組】43. In the passage, the sentence "we tend to become 'mere decoders of information'" means
(A), we become a machine that deletes unnecessary information.
(B). we become encrypted by the Internet.
(C). we gather information on the Internet and interpret them actively.
(D). we read the information from the Internet passively as if we were merely data processing machines . .

44.【題組】44. Which of the following statements is TRUE according to the passage above?
(A). The style of reading promoted by the Internet helps cultivate our ability to interpret the texts deeply.
(B). As we read more and more via the Internet or the cell phone, we gradually lose the ability to interpret the texts and think deeply.
(C). Long works of prose valued by the printing press help revolutionize modem day information and communications technology.
(D). The printing press values the writing style that puts efficiency and immediacy above all else. .

Passage II
Passage U. A study of 100 reefs, published in Science Magazine, shows the interval between bleaching events in recent decades has shortened dramatically. It has gone from once every 25-30 years in the early 1980s to an average of just once every six years today. Bleaching is caused by anomalously warm water, which prompts coral polyps to eject their symbiotic algae. This drains the corals of their color and is fatal unless conditions are reversed in a reasonably short time. But even if temperatures fall back quickly, it can still take many years for damaged reefs to fully recover. Aside from their beauty, tropical corals provide important ecosystem services upon which the livelihoods of many millions of people depend. Reefs, for example, afford coastal protection from big waves, storms, and floods; they also act as key spawning and nursery grounds for economically important fish and other aquatic species. This study concentrates on the climate challenge to corals, but many reefs are also experiencing other stresses, including pollution, overfishing and habitat destruction.

【題組】45. Which of the following statements is TRUE?
(A). The bleaching events of the coral reefs were more frequent in the 1980s than today.
(B). The interval between bleaching events of the coral reefs has come to a halt today.
(C). The interval between bleaching events of the coral reefs today has diminished almost by one-fourth to one-fifth in recent decades.
(D). The interval between bleaching events of coral reefs has been widening ever since the early 1980s. .

46.【題組】46. According to the passage, what is TRUE about bleaching?
(A). It is caused by a steady rise of sea temperature.
(B). It is caused by natural deterioration of coral reefs.
(C). It is caused by a dramatic rise of sea temperature, to which coral reefs respond by ejecting the coral polyps.
(D). It is caused by a dramatic rise of sea temperature, to which coral reefs respond by ejecting the algae that co-exist with them. .

47.【題組】47. Which of the following statements is TRUE?
(A). The main function of the tropical corals is for tourism.
(B). Tropical corals receive stress mainly from the rise of sea temperature.
(C). Tropical corals provide home for a great number of marine species besides offering protection to coasts.
(D). This study is a comprehensive research into all the aspects that may cause the bleaching of coral reefs. .

Passage III
Physicist Stephen Hawking recently warned of the dangers of artificial intelligence and "powerful autonomous weapons." Autonomous technology is racing forward, but international discussions on managing the potential risks are already underway. Recent advances in machine intelligence are enabling more advanced weapons that could hunt for targets on their own. For the past several years, a consortium of nongovernmental organizations have called for a ban on lethal autonomous weapons before they can be built. One of their concerns has been that robotic weapons could result in greater civilian casualties. However, opponents of a ban have countered that autonomous weapons might be able to more precisely target the enemy and avoid civilians better than humans can, just as self-driving cars might someday make roads safer. Machine image classifiers, using neural networks, have been able to beat humans at some benchmark image recognition tests. Machines also excel at situations requiring speed and precision. These advantages suggest that machines might be able to outperform humans in some situations in war.

【題組】48. Which of the following statements is TRUE?
(A). Autonomous technology is still currently lagging behind its regulations.
(B). Autonomous technology is developing at a modest pace, so international discussions on this subject are still budding.
(C). Autonomous technology is fast developing, and the international community has reached an optimistic consensus about its future benefits.
(D). Autonomous technology is fast developing,and the international community is also debating about its future benefits and possible risks. .

49.【題組】49. Which of the following statements is the reason why nongovernmental organizations seek to ban lethal autonomous weapons?
(A). More economic growth will lead to environmental pollution.
(B). More innocent people will get killed.
(C). More warfare will occur.
(D). More lethal weapons will be purchased by civilians. .

50.【題組】50. Which of the following statements is NOT the reason why some people support autonomous weapons?
(A). Machine technology is more correct in identifying the enemy.
(B). Machine technology can avoid killing civilians for it has a program to interact with them.
(C). Machine technology is safer for its technological accuracy, much like the safety that self-driving cars may bring us in the future.
(D). Machine technology performs better than humans in identifying images with its complicated neural networks. .
