五、閱讀測驗(30%) 說明︰第41至55題,每題請分別根據各篇文章之文意選出最適當的一個選項,標示在答案卡之「選擇題答案區」。每題答對得2分,答錯不倒扣。 41-43為題組 Folk tales are stories passed down by word of mouth generation after generation. They often concern very strong or clever people who come from humble backgrounds. These people usually triumph over their enemies because of their wit and their great energy. Folk tales are both down-to-earth and highly imaginative. Many folk tales originally had some basis in fact and grew out of the lives of real people. They changed, however, as they were told and retold. A man might once have fought a bear, for example, and the tales told about him might make him into the greatest bear fighter who ever lived. Through the power of imagination, folk tales can turn humble people into heroes. Many folk tales are also tall tales—stories of unbelievable events told with perfect seriousness. A tall tale, in other words, is a story in which the truth has been exaggerated. A culture’s folk tales, fables, songs, and proverbs are an important part of its literature. By reading and listening to folk tales, we may gain a better understanding of the true values, beliefs, and goals of a people.
【題組】42. Which of the following statements about tall tales is NOT TRUE?
(A) Tall tales are factual stories.
(B) It takes imagination to create tall tales.
(C) Tall tales overstate the power of humans.
(D) People are serious when telling tall tales.

    If you cheated on your spouse, would you admit it to a researcher? That question is one of the biggest challenges in the scientific study of marriage. 22 Surveys conducted in person are likely to underestimate the real rate of adultery because people are reluctant to admit such behavior not just to their spouses but to anyone. For example, researchers from the University of Colorado and Texas A&M surveyed 4,884 married women, using face-to-face interviews and anonymous computer questionnaires. 23 In contrast, on the computer questionnaire, more than 6 percent did. 
    A handful of new studies suggest surprising changes in the marital landscape in the United States. 24 For example, University of Washington researchers have found that the lifetime rate of infidelity for men over 60 increased from 20 to 28 percent to 15 percent. 25 About 20 percent of men and 15 percent of women under 35 say they have ever been unfaithful, up from about 15 and 12 percent, respectively, over the past fifteen years. While infidelity rates do appear to be rising, a vast majority of people still say adultery is wrong, and most men and women do not appear to be unfaithful.

【題組】22
(A) Notably, a surprisingly increasing number of younger women appear to be cheating on their spouses.
(B) Their findings show that infidelity appears to be on the rise, particularly among older people and young couples.
(C) At the same time, experts say that surveys appearing in sources like women’s magazines may overstate the adultery rate.
(D) And interestingly, it helps explain why different studies produce different estimates of infidelity rates in the United States.
