Wikipedia is revolutionizing the concept of encyclopedias and the way we gather knowledge. Since its birth online, Wikipedia has become the world’s largest reference work. With more than 1.2 million articles in nearly 160 languages, it easily dwarfs the Encyclopaedia Britannica, the Encarta Reference and a half-dozen other rivals. How did Wikipedia get started? Jimmy Wales, Wikipedia’s cofounder and leader, began with a simple yet counterintuitive idea: create an open encyclopedia that anyone can contribute to. (The name Wikipedia comes from the “wiki” sort of collaborative software that powers the website.) The project adopted a few rules of order: whenever someone edits an article, a new version of the article is created and saved. This is important because Wikipedia is an open-content project. Such projects are fueled by the authority derived by the contributors from the work that they do. Your contribution to an article, no matter how small, is kept for future generations and clearly identified as such.
【題組】24. What does dwarf in paragraph 1 mean?
(A) To make similar.
(B) To make popular.
(C) To make famous.
(D) To make smaller.

五、閱讀測驗(請在下列各題中選出最適當的答案) In 11 states across the USA, school buses are now doing more than just transporting students. They’re also serving as rolling billboards. These school buses carry advertisements on the outside. Restaurants, insurance companies, banks, and other businesses pay for the ads, hoping to attract more customers. And it’s a way for the schools to make money as they face deep budget cuts. In addition to Colorado, states such as Arizona, New Jersey, and Texas allow ads on the outside of their school buses. The idea appears to be catching on. In Georgia, some school-district leaders are suggesting putting ads on their buses too. School districts need to ensure that the ads are appropriate for kids, according to Michael Beauchamp, chief executive officer of Alpha Media. This company works with businesses in several states to create ads for school buses. “The districts won’t allow ads for things like beer, cigarettes, or politics,” Beauchamp told Time for Kids Magazine. But not everyone is in favor of school buses having ads on the outside. That includes Georgia’s Department of Education. Spokeswoman Dorie Nolt told TFK, “We strongly believe that advertising on the outside of school buses distracts drivers and children.” Parents are divided on the issue. “I don’t think the ads are a distraction,” said Glenn Herdling of River Vale, New Jersey. His son is in second grade. “And if they can bring in money for the schools and help save some programs, that’s fantastic.” Cindy Tomarchio of East Windsor, New Jersey, feels differently. “I know the schools can use the money, but kids already see enough advertising every which way they turn,” she said.
【題組】36. According to the passage, why do some schools allow their school buses to carry advertisements?
(A) To make money.
(B) To attract students.
(C) To beautify the buses.
(D) To help the local business.
