四、閱讀測驗 
  Charlotte’s Web, by American writer
(E) B. White, is a classic children’s novel about a pig named Wilbur and his friendship with a barn spider named Charlotte. It was listed by Publisher’s Weekly as the top-selling children’s paperback of all time in the year 2000. 
  When a little girl, Fern Arable, learns that her father intends to kill a baby piglet because it is the runt of the litter, she begs him to spare the piglet’s life. Mr. Arable finally relents and gives Fern the responsibility of raising the piglet, hoping this will show Fern “how much trouble a pig can be.”  
   Fern nurses the piglet, which she names Wilbur, for several weeks. Once Wilbur is old enough, Mr. Arable makes Fern sell Wilbur to her uncle. At Zuckerman’s farm, Wilbur becomes lonely for friendship but none of the farm animals will play with him. Eventually, Charlotte, a large gray spider whose web stretches above the door to Wilbur’s pigpen, extends the hand of friendship. Wilbur is at first horrified by the bloodthirsty nature of the spider, but eventually the two become dear friends
  By chance, Wilbur discovers that he will soon be killed for Christmas dinner. Charlotte promises she will devise a plan to save his life, and after several days an idea comes to her. Charlotte begins weaving praise of Wilbur into her web, includingSome Pig!” and “TERRIFIC,” attracting publicity among Zuckerman’s neighbors. Mr. Zuckerman becomes so preoccupied with the miracles of his famous pig he decides to enter Wilbur in a competition at the County Fair. With Charlotte’s assistance, Wilbur goes to the fair and wins Mr. Zuckerman top prize, ensuring that Wilbur will not go to slaughter. Charlotte, however, has reached the end of her natural lifespan, and after laying her eggs, she becomes too weak to go on. With help from a rat, Wilbur salvages Charlotte’s eggs and transports them back to Zuckerman’s barn. When Charlotte’s eggs eventually hatch the following spring, most of the baby spiders depart to build webs of their own elsewhere. Three of Charlotte’s daughters, however, stay behind at Zuckerman’s barn as friends to Wilbur.

五、閱讀測驗: 
    Mainly due to the high demand for ivory in some Asian countries, elephant poaching is yet again on the rise. In 2009, over 14,000 different products made from body parts of elephants were seized, which made scientists issue certain warnings.   Most experts agree that some rapid developing economies, such as China and India, are to blame for the high ivorydemand. With their stronger and growing economies, an increasing number of people in these countries can now afford ivory, which has become something like the status symbol for the middle class in these countries, particularly because of the soaring price of ivory over the last couple of years.   According to the estimate of scientists, in order to meet the high ivory demand, around 8% to 10% of Africa’s elephants are now being killed annually. This is really an alarming situation, which puts the world’s largest animals once again in great danger. As a result, many elephants are being slaughtered by merciless poachers who only care about money.   
   To the disappointment of many scientists, cruel elephant poaching will just go on as long as there is high demand for ivory. What’s worse is that it’s very difficult to find a solution to this problem. The only certain fact is that elephants, especially those living in Africa, need much more protection because poaching gangs are becoming more and more organized, and there are not enough rangers to stop them.
