Questions 33-41 In the early days of the United States, postal charges were paid by the recipient and Charges varied with the distance carried. In 1825, the United States Congress permitted local postmasters to give letters to mail carriers for home delivery, but these carriers received no government salary and their entire compensation on what they were paid by the recipients of individual letters. In 1847 the United States Post Office Department adopted the idea of a postage stamp, which of course simplified the payment for postal service but caused grumbling by those who did not like to prepay. Besides, the stamp covered only delivery to the post office and did not include carrying it to a private address. In Philadelphia, for example, with a population of 150,000, people still had to go to the post office to get their mail. The confusion and congestion of individual citizens looking for their letters was itself enough to discourage use of the mail. It is no wonder that, during the years of these cumbersome arrangements, private letter-carrying and express businesses developed. Although their activities were only semilegal, they thrived, and actually advertised that between Boston and Philadelphia they were a half-day speedier than the government mail. The government postal service lost volume to private competition and was not able to handle efficiently even the business it had. Finally, in 1863, Congress provided that the mail carriers who delivered the mail from the post offices to private addresses should receive a government salary, and that there should be no extra charge for that delivery. But this delivery service was at first confined to cities, and free home delivery became a mark of urbanism. As late as 1887, a town had to have 10,000 people to be eligible for free home delivery. In 1890, of the 75 million people in the United States. Fewer than 20 million had mail delivered free to their doors. The rest, nearly three-quarters of the population, still received no mail unless they went to their post office.

良好品格想法聽起來老套屈尊的但它可能是一些我們最根深蒂固社會問題的關鍵
Interstellar travel, space travel between the stars, has been a staple in science fiction writing for many years. Now, it is being taken seriously by many scientists, who are researching and discussing the possible problems likely to face an interstellar journey.
 Recently, one research team, affiliated with the Breakthrough Propulsion Physics (BPP) at NASA, has outlined three important breakthroughs that might bring the possibility closer to reality. Firstly, a new propulsion method that consumes much lighter fuels or even massless fuels must be developed. This requirement stems from the fact that current fuels either take up too much space in an interstellar ship or is too heavy to be effectively transported by the ship. Secondly, a propulsion system that attains the maximum speed theoretically possible will be needed due to the vast distances across space. Lastly, NASA sees a need for a breakthrough method of energy production to power the ship’s internal components. The BPP team sees possibilities between the breakthroughs required and past advances in history, such as jet engines replacing the propellers on aircrafts and steamships replacing sailing vessels. In other words, a brand new technology will be needed and is possible when viewed from a historical perspective. (This passage is adapted from an article from NASA’s webpage.)

【題組】40According to paragraph 2, a lighter or massless fuels have to be created because ______.
(A) the weight and space requirement of current fuel technology are too cumbersome
(B) they have to keep the spaceships smaller
(C) spaceships cost too much to add the mass and the space of heavy fuels
(D) the current fuel technology is one of the effective ways to make a long interstellar journey possible
