(B) In October 1977, a man named Billy Milligan was arrested and charged with abducting and raping three women on the Ohio State University Campus in the US. What came next made national headlines. Billy Milligan's public defenders decided that he should plead not guilty by reason of insanity, claiming that he suffered from multiple personality disorder as a result of alleged severe physical and sexual abuse as a child by his stepfather. They stated that two of his other personalities, also known as "alters", committed the crimes he was accused of.
    In fact, multiple personality disorder (MPD), or dissociative identity disorder (DID) as it was renamed in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fourth Edition, Text Revision (DSM-IV-TR), is a disorder that causes an individual, known as the host personality, to have at least two distinct personalities or identities existing within them. Each personality or alter ego, has their own gender, age and race as well as their own thoughts, emotions, and physiological reactions. Some alters have been known to have different accents and/or different abilities to the host. For example, they may paint or sing well, something that the host might not be able to do. When an alter ego is in control, the individual is generally unaware of what that alter is doing or thinking. Individuals with DID have at least two identities but can have as many as 100 with ten being the average number.
    It is believed that dissociative identity disorder occurs as a way to cope with severe childhood trauma, such as physical and/or sexual abuse. In order for a child to deal with the trauma, he or she detaches or dissociates themselves from the memory in order to protect themselves psychologically. This detachment can become so extreme that it develops into separate and distinct personalities that can emerge in response to further psychological stresses. However, there is some controversy as to whether DID is a real disorder, even though it is listed as such in the DSM-IV-TR. Many psychiatrists question its validity as a disorder for a number of reasons. Only 3% of psychiatric hospital patients have been diagnosed with it; the majority of child abuse victims never develop the disorder, and many DID sufferers were never abused as children

【題組】64. Why did the case of Billy Milligan draw so much attention from the public?
(A) He had been repeatedly abused by his stepfather as a child.
(B) He was the first patient to be diagnosed with dissociative identity disorder.
(C) He became the first in the US to effectively use multiple personality disorder as a defense.
(D) He had a strong alibi which could prove that he was not physically present on the crime scene.
21.The books in David’s schoolbag felt like bricks as he ran down the street. What he wanted to do was to play basketball with Eric, 21 his mother told him he would have to return his sister’s books to the library first. He had 22 set foot in a library and he wasn’t about to do so today. He would just 23 the books in the outside return box. But there was a 24 ; it was locked. He went into the building, only a few minutes 25 closing time. He put the books into the return box. And after a brief 26 in the toilet, he would be on his way to the playground to 27 Eric. David stepped out of the toilet and stopped in 28 — the library lights were off. The place was 29 . The doors had been shut. They 30 be opened from the inside, he was trapped(被困) — in a library! He tried to 31 a telephone call, but was unable to 32 . What’s worse, the pay phones were on the outside of the building. 33 the sun began to set, he searched for a light and found it. 34 he could see. David wrote on a piece of paper: “ 35 ! I’m TRAPPED inside!” and stuck it to the glass door. 36 , someone passing by would see it. He was surprised to discover that this place was not so unpleasant, 37 . Rows and rows of shelves held books, videos and music. He saw a book about Michael Jordan and took it off the shelf. He settled into a chair and started to 38 . He knew he had to 39 , but now, that didn’t seem to be such a 40 thing.
41.If you were to walk up to Arthur Bonner and say, “ Hey, Butterfly Man,” his face would break into a smile. The title suits him. And he loves it. Arthur Bonner works with the Palos Verdes blue butterfly(蝴蝶), once thought to have died out. Today the butterfly is coming back — thanks to him. But years ago if you’d told him this was what he’d be doing someday, he would have laughed, “ You’re crazy.” As a boy, he used to be “ a little tough guy on the streets”. At age thirteen, he was caught by police stealing. At eighteen, he landed in prison for shooting a man. “ I knew it had hurt my mom,” Bonner said after he got out of prison. “ So I told myself I would not put my mom through that pain again.” One day he met Professor Mattoni, who was working to rebuild the habitat(栖息地) for an endangered butterfly called El Segundo blue. “ I saw the sign ‘ Butterfly Habitat’ and asked, ‘ How can you have a habitat when the butterflies can just fly away?’” Bonner recalls. “ Dr. Mattoni laughed and handed me a magnifying glass(放大镜) , ‘Look at the leaves.’ I could see all these caterpillars(蝴蝶的幼虫) on the plant. Dr Mattoni explained, ‘ Without the plant, there are no butterflies.’” Weeks later, Bonner received a call from Dr. Mattoni, who told him there was a butterfly needed help. That was how he met the Palos Verdes blue. Since then he’s been working for four years to help bring the butterfly back. He grows astragalus, the only plant the butterfly eats. He collects butterflies and brings them into a lab to lay eggs. Then he puts new butterflies into the habitat. The butterfly’s population, once almost zero, is now up to 900. For their work, Bonner and Dr. Mattoni receiced lots of awards. But for Bonner, he earned something more: he turned his life around. For six years now Bonner has kept his promise to stay out of prison. While he’s bringing back the Palos Verdes blue, the butterfly has helped bring him back, too. When he was young, Arthur Bonner _______.
(A)broke the law and ended up in prison
(B)was fond of shooting and hurt his mom
(C)often laughed at people on the streeets
(D)often caught butterflies and took them home
