(A) Though Hayao Miyazaki delivered his retirement speech earlier this year, his work will

never be left into oblivion. The high reputation of Miyazaki is achieved not only with his dedication and devotion to animation, but also 16. the originality that his films display. Though themes of transformation have also been presented in works of Disney, Miyazaki’s overall constructions appear to be closer to life than 17. of Disney’s. In the film, Spirited Away, Chihiro’s determination and endurance parallel the magic power. Girls would want to be as brave and hard-working as Chihiro after watching the film. 18. true-to-life elements, this movie wouldn’t have received such an immense extent of resonation.

The fact that Miyazaki, now 72, is toward his limelight, somehow 19. that age won’t inhibit creativity. In fact, research shows that the job allotment is 20. assigned in younger brains. That is, the right hemisphere is only responsible for related functions and so is the left one. However, in the older brain, one hemisphere is not shy about calling on 21. for help if it’s having trouble with a task. Maybe this discovery can explain why Miyazaki could continuously weave picture and text so well since these two domains have long been considered under control of the right and left brain separately.

(B) As the idea of walking out of comfort zone and exploring the world becomes prevailing,

I think it’s time to rethink about this idea after watching the movie, The Legend of 1900.

On the boat, Virginian, which looked deserted and dilapidated, 22. one impeccable pianist, 1900. In fact, he was found abandoned by one sailor. That sailor adopted him and raised him up on the sea. Later, no sooner did 1900 hear the joyful music at one party 23. his legend began. One night, with his mind reminiscing about the song played at the party, 1900 sneaked into the ballroom. There, he found the piano. Right after his fingers passed over the keys, stunning melody thrilled the boat. It was as if he 24. piano lessons for a long time. 25. he was a music prodigy, people made frantic line to see him. Famous as he was, one thing perplexed all: He refused to get off the boat. The trumpet player, Max, suggested him to start business on land. 26. Max’s words, 1900 once was determined to get off the boat. While every crew member was looking forward to celebrating his triumphant of stepping on land, he flinched and shrank back at the last minute. This dramatic twist left everyone in astonishment. No one knew 27. he was to explain his retreat. And no one dared to ask. They just knew that in 28. of 1900’s remaining days, not even once did he show a scowl look or release sigh on such an irreversible move.

At the closure of the movie, 1900 stated, “ There are 88 notes for one piano. 29. the limited combination, I could create an infinite music world. But the city on land is infinite, it’s impossible for me to control the infinity. ” Among numerous quotes from this film, it is these very lines 30. give me a blow. In this light, it appears that we should act the way we feel in response to our calling rather than blindly obey the imposed construction of social value. Were it not for 1900’s intriguing story, this idea would never dawn on me.

There isn’t a brand or a trend that these young people are not aware of. That is why mothers who want to keep abreast of trends usually 33. the expertstheir daughters. This tells the retailers of the world that if you want to get into a mother’s 34. , you’ve got to win her daughter over first.

With a DJ playing various kinds of music rather than just rap, and a mix of clothing labels designed more for taste and fashion than for a precise age, department stores have managed to appeal to successful middle-aged women 35. losing their younger customers.

Greenpeace organization is in an attempt to clean up the environment and keep the Earth in good condition for future generations. The group’s members hope that through educational 36. and protests, they can serve as the voice for our planet.

Greenpeace was founded in 1971 in Vancouver, Canada, in the 37. of the peace movement of the 1960s. It started when like-minded activists against nuclear weapons and violence came together. The name Greenpeace comes from a chartered ship that was used by the Don’t Make a Wave committee. As the group 38. and recruited more members, it started tackling other environmental issues as well. Some notable 39. include protecting ancient forests, promoting clean energy sources, and challenging companies that 40. destructive fishing or farming practices.

Greenpeace was also very active in lobbying governments and staging non-violent protests, which encouraged nations to ratify the Kyoto Protocol, an international treaty designed to 41. greenhouse gas emissions. In 2012, Greenpeace activists managed to shut down 75 Shell gas stations in the UK.

Activists raided the stations and used an emergency 42. to prevent gasoline from reaching the pumps. Then they draped a “Save the Arctic” banner over the Shell logo to draw attention. Greenpeace also made news in Taiwan after it conducted a test revealing that fruits and vegetables sold in traditional markets may contain toxic pesticides, some of which are so harmful that they have already been 43. in Europe. While Greenpeace’s actions may seem disruptive and hostile at times, its ultimate aim to make the Earth greener and more peaceful is still highly valued.

 = 4 * ROMAN IV. Discourse: 2 %

(A) Resting on a hill above the German countryside, Neuschwanstein is one of the most splendid

fairytale castles in the world. Neuschwanstein itself is a hot tourist spot. 44. Yet, despite looking like it was built in the Middle Ages, the castle is not even 200 years old.

Neuschwanstein was the dream project of King Ludwig II of Bavaria. Ludwig’s father died in 1864 and left the throne to Ludwig, who was 18 at the time. 45. In fact, he had very little actual power, since Bavaria’s government was in control of the kingdom. After Bavaria lost a decisive battle to Prussia and became part of Germany, Ludwig took it as a personal defeat first.

46. He longed to be a powerful, noble king just like the ones in medieval stories and Richard Wagner’s operas.

Moreover, Ludwig dreamed of having his own castle and made plans to build one. 47. The top of a large hill beated other choices. Workers used dynamite to flatten the hill and the latest steam technology to move building materials. Ludwig also wanted the castle’s interiors to be brimming with detailed tapestries, paintings, and ornate furniture. Sadly, Ludwig died several years into the construction of the castle. In the end, the castle was never finished. 48. If you ever find yourself in Germany searching for a magical place, make sure that Neuschwanstein Castle is on the top of your list .

(A)Ludwig was a king in name only.

(B)Later, he gradually retreated into a world of fantasy and fairy tales.

(C)And it’s also the inspiration for the castle in Disney’s Sleeping Beauty.

(D)But, it is still an impressive structure.

(E)He chose a tough site to start construction.

(B) As a pianist, I was invited to perform with a cellist at the International Cello Festival in

Manchester, England. 49. Behind it was a moving story. At 4 p.m. on May 27, 1992, a long line slowly formed outside a bakery in Sarajevo, a war-shattered city. All of a sudden, a mortar shell fell directly into the middle of the line. 50. Seeing the massacre outside his window, Vedran Smailovic, a renowned cellist, decided to take some action. He decided to let the most mournful and haunting music covey the sorrow. During the next twenty-two days, he played it to the empty streets and to the terrified people hiding in the cellars while the bomb exploded. With buildings blown off around him, he showed his courage to fight for peace. 51. Touched by this story, David Wilde, an English composer, wrote a composition for an unaccompanied cello called “The Cellist of Sarajevo.” Yo-Yo Ma played the exact piece on that evening in England. In the beginning the music created a shadowy, empty universe. 52. When the performance was over, everyone in the hall remained silent for a long time. The complex feeling toward massacre was successfully intertwined well with the song and penetrated into everyone’s heart. 53. The two men hugged and cried. From the story, I realized that music is a gift that we all share.

(A) Slowly, it grew into a furor which gripped the audience.

(B) Miraculously, though the shelling went on, he was never hurt.

(C) In just a blink, twenty-two people’s lives were claimed.

(D) Then Yo-Yo Ma stood up to meet Vedran Smailovic.

(E) In one of the concerts, Yo-Yo Ma played a composition.

(A) If you touch your finger to a hot stove, you know it’s going to hurt. However, if you convince

yourself beforehand that the pain won’t be so bad, you might not suffer as much. According to a recent study, the part of your brain that reacts to severe pain is largely the same part that reacts to expectation of pain.

Researchers in this study worked with 10 volunteers, ages 24 to 46. Each volunteer wore a device that gave out 20-second-long pulses of heat to the right leg. There were three levels of heat, producing mild, moderate, or strong pain. During training, the volunteers would first hear a tone, followed by a period of silence, and then feel a heat pulse. They then learned to associate the length of the silent pause with the intensity of the upcoming heat pulse. The longer the pause, the stronger the heat pulse would be, causing more severe pain.

A day or two later, the real experiment began. The researchers found that the parts of the brain involved in learning, memory, emotion, and touch became more active as the volunteers expected higher levels of pain. These were mainly the same areas that became active when participants actually felt pain. Interestingly, when the volunteers expected only mild or moderate pain but experienced severe pain, they reported feeling 28 percent less pain than when they expected severe pain and actually got it.

The new study emphasizes that pain has both physical and psychological elements. Understanding how pain works in the mind and brain could eventually give doctors tools for helping people cope with painful medical treatments.

54. What is the main idea of the passage?

(A) We should learn to be sensitive to pain.

(B) Our feeling of pain is decided by our environment.

(C) How people feel pain remains unknown to scientists.

(D) Our reaction to pain is closely related to our expectation of pain.

55. How did the volunteers learn to expect different levels of heat?

(A) From the loudness of the tone they heard.

(B) From the instruction given to them by the researchers.

(C) From the color of a light flashing on the device they wore.

(D) From the length of the pause between a tone and the heat pulse.

(B) No budget for your vacation? Try home exchangesswapping houses with strangers. Agree to use each other’s cars, and you can save bucks on car rentals, too.

Home exchanges are not new. At least one group, Intervac, has been facilitating such an arrangement since 1953. But trading online is gaining popularity these days, with several sites in operation, including HomeExchanges. Founded in 1992, with some 28,000 listings, this company bills itself as the world’s largest home exchange club, reporting that membership has increased 30% this year.

The annual fee is usually less than US$100. Members can access thousands of listings for apartments, villas, suburban homes and farms around the world. Initial contact is made via e-mail, with subsequent communication usually by phone. Before a match is made, potential swappers tend to discuss a lot.

However, the concept may sound risky to some people. What about theft? Damage? These are reasonable causes for concern, but equally unlikely. As one swapper puts it, “Nobody is going to fly across the ocean or drive 600 miles to come steal your TV. Besides, at the same time they’re staying in your home, you are staying in their home.”

Exchange sites recommend that swappers discuss such matters ahead of time. They may fill out an agreement spelling out who shoulders which responsibilities if a problem arises. It does not matter if the agreement would hold up in court, but it does give the exchangers a little satisfaction.

Generally, the biggest complaint among home exchangers has to do with different standards of cleanliness. Swappers are supposed to make sure their home is in order before they depart, but one person’s idea of “clean” may be more forgiving than another’s. Some owners say if they come back to a less-than-sparkling kitchen, it may be inconvenient but would not sour them on future exchanges.

56. Which of the following is closest in meaning to “bills” in the second paragraph?

(A) advertises (B) dedicates (C) replaces (D) participates

57. What is recommended in the passage to deal with theft and damage concerns?

(A) One can file a lawsuit in court.

(B) Both parties can trade online.

(C) Both parties can sign an agreement beforehand.

(D) One can damage the home of the other party in return.

(C) According to popular folklore, many animals are smarter than they appear. Dogs bark before earthquakes; cattle predict rainfall by sitting on the ground. But cattle may have another hidden talent in telling which way is north.

Small animals such as mole rats living underground are known for the use of magnetism to navigate. Dr. Begall and her colleagues wanted to know whether larger mammals also have the ability to perceive magnetic fields. They investigated this possibility by studying images of thousands of cattle captured on Google Earth, a website that stitches together satellite photographs to produce an image of the Earth’s surface.

Grazing animals are known to orient themselves in a way that minimizes wind chill from the north and maximizes the warmth of the sun when they are cold. The researchers therefore had to study a lot of cows grazing in lots of different places at different times of day, in order to average out these factors and see whether cattle could act like compass needles.

The researchers concluded that cattle do generally orient themselves in a north-south direction. This north-south preference has also been noted in flies, termites and honeybees. But unfortunately, even the high resolution of Google Earth is not powerful enough to tell which end of the cow is its head, and which its tail. The researchers were therefore unable to answer their research questions of whether cattle prefer to look north or south, and whether that differs in the northern and southern hemispheres.

58. Which of the following factors might affect Dr. Begall’s research result?

(A) Rainfall. (B) Earthquakes. (C) Location. (D) Cost.

59. What is the major finding of Dr. Begall’s study?

(A) Cattle point north-south. (B) Magnetism can’t be studied scientifically.

(C) Animals prefer to look south. (D) Google Earth is a reliable research tool.

Girls would want to be as brave and hard-working as Chihiro after watching the film. 18. true-to-life elements, this movie wouldn’t have received such an immense extent of resonation.

The fact that Miyazaki, now 72, is toward his limelight, somehow 19. that age won’t inhibit creativity. In fact, research shows that the job allotment is 20. assigned in younger brains. That is, the right hemisphere is only responsible for related functions and so is the left one. However, in the older brain, one hemisphere is not shy about calling on 21. for help if it’s having trouble with a task. Maybe this discovery can explain why Miyazaki could continuously weave picture and text so well since these two domains have long been considered under control of the right and left brain separately.

Later, no sooner did 1900 hear the joyful music at one party 23. his legend began. One night, with his mind reminiscing about the song played at the party, 1900 sneaked into the ballroom. There, he found the piano. Right after his fingers passed over the keys, stunning melody thrilled the boat. It was as if he 24. piano lessons for a long time. 25. he was a music prodigy, people made frantic line to see him. Famous as he was, one thing perplexed all: He refused to get off the boat. The trumpet player, Max, suggested him to start business on land. 26. Max’s words, 1900 once was determined to get off the boat. While every crew member was looking forward to celebrating his triumphant of stepping on land, he flinched and shrank back at the last minute. This dramatic twist left everyone in astonishment. No one knew 27. he was to explain his retreat. And no one dared to ask. They just knew that in 28. of 1900’s remaining days, not even once did he show a scowl look or release sigh on such an irreversible move.

At the closure of the movie, 1900 stated, “ There are 88 notes for one piano. 29. the limited combination, I could create an infinite music world. But the city on land is infinite, it’s impossible for me to control the infinity. ” Among numerous quotes from this film, it is these very lines 30. give me a blow. In this light, it appears that we should act the way we feel in response to our calling rather than blindly obey the imposed construction of social value. Were it not for 1900’s intriguing story, this idea would never dawn on me.

(A) Resting on a hill above the German countryside, Neuschwanstein is one of the most splendid

fairytale castles in the world. Neuschwanstein itself is a hot tourist spot. 44. Yet, despite looking like it was built in the Middle Ages, the castle is not even 200 years old.

Neuschwanstein was the dream project of King Ludwig II of Bavaria. Ludwig’s father died in 1864 and left the throne to Ludwig, who was 18 at the time. 45. In fact, he had very little actual power, since Bavaria’s government was in control of the kingdom. After Bavaria lost a decisive battle to Prussia and became part of Germany, Ludwig took it as a personal defeat first.

46. He longed to be a powerful, noble king just like the ones in medieval stories and Richard Wagner’s operas.

Moreover, Ludwig dreamed of having his own castle and made plans to build one. 47. The top of a large hill beated other choices. Workers used dynamite to flatten the hill and the latest steam technology to move building materials. Ludwig also wanted the castle’s interiors to be brimming with detailed tapestries, paintings, and ornate furniture. Sadly, Ludwig died several years into the construction of the castle. In the end, the castle was never finished. 48. If you ever find yourself in Germany searching for a magical place, make sure that Neuschwanstein Castle is on the top of your list .

(A)Ludwig was a king in name only.

(B)Later, he gradually retreated into a world of fantasy and fairy tales.

(C)And it’s also the inspiration for the castle in Disney’s Sleeping Beauty.

(D)But, it is still an impressive structure.

(E)He chose a tough site to start construction.

(B) As a pianist, I was invited to perform with a cellist at the International Cello Festival in

Manchester, England. 49. Behind it was a moving story. At 4 p.m. on May 27, 1992, a long line slowly formed outside a bakery in Sarajevo, a war-shattered city. All of a sudden, a mortar shell fell directly into the middle of the line. 50. Seeing the massacre outside his window, Vedran Smailovic, a renowned cellist, decided to take some action. He decided to let the most mournful and haunting music covey the sorrow. During the next twenty-two days, he played it to the empty streets and to the terrified people hiding in the cellars while the bomb exploded. With buildings blown off around him, he showed his courage to fight for peace. 51. Touched by this story, David Wilde, an English composer, wrote a composition for an unaccompanied cello called “The Cellist of Sarajevo.” Yo-Yo Ma played the exact piece on that evening in England. In the beginning the music created a shadowy, empty universe. 52. When the performance was over, everyone in the hall remained silent for a long time. The complex feeling toward massacre was successfully intertwined well with the song and penetrated into everyone’s heart. 53. The two men hugged and cried. From the story, I realized that music is a gift that we all share.

(A) Slowly, it grew into a furor which gripped the audience.

(B) Miraculously, though the shelling went on, he was never hurt.

(C) In just a blink, twenty-two people’s lives were claimed.

(D) Then Yo-Yo Ma stood up to meet Vedran Smailovic.

(E) In one of the concerts, Yo-Yo Ma played a composition.

(A) If you touch your finger to a hot stove, you know it’s going to hurt. However, if you convince

yourself beforehand that the pain won’t be so bad, you might not suffer as much. According to a recent study, the part of your brain that reacts to severe pain is largely the same part that reacts to expectation of pain.

Researchers in this study worked with 10 volunteers, ages 24 to 46. Each volunteer wore a device that gave out 20-second-long pulses of heat to the right leg. There were three levels of heat, producing mild, moderate, or strong pain. During training, the volunteers would first hear a tone, followed by a period of silence, and then feel a heat pulse. They then learned to associate the length of the silent pause with the intensity of the upcoming heat pulse. The longer the pause, the stronger the heat pulse would be, causing more severe pain.

A day or two later, the real experiment began. The researchers found that the parts of the brain involved in learning, memory, emotion, and touch became more active as the volunteers expected higher levels of pain. These were mainly the same areas that became active when participants actually felt pain. Interestingly, when the volunteers expected only mild or moderate pain but experienced severe pain, they reported feeling 28 percent less pain than when they expected severe pain and actually got it.

The new study emphasizes that pain has both physical and psychological elements. Understanding how pain works in the mind and brain could eventually give doctors tools for helping people cope with painful medical treatments.

54. What is the main idea of the passage?

(A) We should learn to be sensitive to pain.

(B) Our feeling of pain is decided by our environment.

(C) How people feel pain remains unknown to scientists.

(D) Our reaction to pain is closely related to our expectation of pain.

55. How did the volunteers learn to expect different levels of heat?

(A) From the loudness of the tone they heard.

(B) From the instruction given to them by the researchers.

(C) From the color of a light flashing on the device they wore.

(D) From the length of the pause between a tone and the heat pulse.

(B) No budget for your vacation? Try home exchangesswapping houses with strangers. Agree to use each other’s cars, and you can save bucks on car rentals, too.

Home exchanges are not new. At least one group, Intervac, has been facilitating such an arrangement since 1953. But trading online is gaining popularity these days, with several sites in operation, including HomeExchanges. Founded in 1992, with some 28,000 listings, this company bills itself as the world’s largest home exchange club, reporting that membership has increased 30% this year.

The annual fee is usually less than US$100. Members can access thousands of listings for apartments, villas, suburban homes and farms around the world. Initial contact is made via e-mail, with subsequent communication usually by phone. Before a match is made, potential swappers tend to discuss a lot.

However, the concept may sound risky to some people. What about theft? Damage? These are reasonable causes for concern, but equally unlikely. As one swapper puts it, “Nobody is going to fly across the ocean or drive 600 miles to come steal your TV. Besides, at the same time they’re staying in your home, you are staying in their home.”

Exchange sites recommend that swappers discuss such matters ahead of time. They may fill out an agreement spelling out who shoulders which responsibilities if a problem arises. It does not matter if the agreement would hold up in court, but it does give the exchangers a little satisfaction.

Generally, the biggest complaint among home exchangers has to do with different standards of cleanliness. Swappers are supposed to make sure their home is in order before they depart, but one person’s idea of “clean” may be more forgiving than another’s. Some owners say if they come back to a less-than-sparkling kitchen, it may be inconvenient but would not sour them on future exchanges.

56. Which of the following is closest in meaning to “bills” in the second paragraph?

(A) advertises (B) dedicates (C) replaces (D) participates

57. What is recommended in the passage to deal with theft and damage concerns?

(A) One can file a lawsuit in court.

(B) Both parties can trade online.

(C) Both parties can sign an agreement beforehand.

(D) One can damage the home of the other party in return.

(C) According to popular folklore, many animals are smarter than they appear. Dogs bark before earthquakes; cattle predict rainfall by sitting on the ground. But cattle may have another hidden talent in telling which way is north.

Small animals such as mole rats living underground are known for the use of magnetism to navigate. Dr. Begall and her colleagues wanted to know whether larger mammals also have the ability to perceive magnetic fields. They investigated this possibility by studying images of thousands of cattle captured on Google Earth, a website that stitches together satellite photographs to produce an image of the Earth’s surface.

Grazing animals are known to orient themselves in a way that minimizes wind chill from the north and maximizes the warmth of the sun when they are cold. The researchers therefore had to study a lot of cows grazing in lots of different places at different times of day, in order to average out these factors and see whether cattle could act like compass needles.

The researchers concluded that cattle do generally orient themselves in a north-south direction. This north-south preference has also been noted in flies, termites and honeybees. But unfortunately, even the high resolution of Google Earth is not powerful enough to tell which end of the cow is its head, and which its tail. The researchers were therefore unable to answer their research questions of whether cattle prefer to look north or south, and whether that differs in the northern and southern hemispheres.

58. Which of the following factors might affect Dr. Begall’s research result?

(A) Rainfall. (B) Earthquakes. (C) Location. (D) Cost.

59. What is the major finding of Dr. Begall’s study?

(A) Cattle point north-south. (B) Magnetism can’t be studied scientifically.

(C) Animals prefer to look south. (D) Google Earth is a reliable research tool.

(A) If you touch your finger to a hot stove, you know it’s going to hurt. However, if you convince

yourself beforehand that the pain won’t be so bad, you might not suffer as much. According to a recent study, the part of your brain that reacts to severe pain is largely the same part that reacts to expectation of pain.

Researchers in this study worked with 10 volunteers, ages 24 to 46. Each volunteer wore a device that gave out 20-second-long pulses of heat to the right leg. There were three levels of heat, producing mild, moderate, or strong pain. During training, the volunteers would first hear a tone, followed by a period of silence, and then feel a heat pulse. They then learned to associate the length of the silent pause with the intensity of the upcoming heat pulse. The longer the pause, the stronger the heat pulse would be, causing more severe pain.

A day or two later, the real experiment began. The researchers found that the parts of the brain involved in learning, memory, emotion, and touch became more active as the volunteers expected higher levels of pain. These were mainly the same areas that became active when participants actually felt pain. Interestingly, when the volunteers expected only mild or moderate pain but experienced severe pain, they reported feeling 28 percent less pain than when they expected severe pain and actually got it.

The new study emphasizes that pain has both physical and psychological elements. Understanding how pain works in the mind and brain could eventually give doctors tools for helping people cope with painful medical treatments.

54. What is the main idea of the passage?

(A) We should learn to be sensitive to pain.

(B) Our feeling of pain is decided by our environment.

(C) How people feel pain remains unknown to scientists.

(D) Our reaction to pain is closely related to our expectation of pain.

55. How did the volunteers learn to expect different levels of heat?

(A) From the loudness of the tone they heard.

(B) From the instruction given to them by the researchers.

(C) From the color of a light flashing on the device they wore.

(D) From the length of the pause between a tone and the heat pulse.

(B) No budget for your vacation? Try home exchangesswapping houses with strangers. Agree to use each other’s cars, and you can save bucks on car rentals, too.

Home exchanges are not new. At least one group, Intervac, has been facilitating such an arrangement since 1953. But trading online is gaining popularity these days, with several sites in operation, including HomeExchanges. Founded in 1992, with some 28,000 listings, this company bills itself as the world’s largest home exchange club, reporting that membership has increased 30% this year.

The annual fee is usually less than US$100. Members can access thousands of listings for apartments, villas, suburban homes and farms around the world. Initial contact is made via e-mail, with subsequent communication usually by phone. Before a match is made, potential swappers tend to discuss a lot.

However, the concept may sound risky to some people. What about theft? Damage? These are reasonable causes for concern, but equally unlikely. As one swapper puts it, “Nobody is going to fly across the ocean or drive 600 miles to come steal your TV. Besides, at the same time they’re staying in your home, you are staying in their home.”

Exchange sites recommend that swappers discuss such matters ahead of time. They may fill out an agreement spelling out who shoulders which responsibilities if a problem arises. It does not matter if the agreement would hold up in court, but it does give the exchangers a little satisfaction.

Generally, the biggest complaint among home exchangers has to do with different standards of cleanliness. Swappers are supposed to make sure their home is in order before they depart, but one person’s idea of “clean” may be more forgiving than another’s. Some owners say if they come back to a less-than-sparkling kitchen, it may be inconvenient but would not sour them on future exchanges.

56. Which of the following is closest in meaning to “bills” in the second paragraph?

(A) advertises (B) dedicates (C) replaces (D) participates

57. What is recommended in the passage to deal with theft and damage concerns?

(A) One can file a lawsuit in court.

(B) Both parties can trade online.

(C) Both parties can sign an agreement beforehand.

(D) One can damage the home of the other party in return.

(C) According to popular folklore, many animals are smarter than they appear. Dogs bark before earthquakes; cattle predict rainfall by sitting on the ground. But cattle may have another hidden talent in telling which way is north.

Small animals such as mole rats living underground are known for the use of magnetism to navigate. Dr. Begall and her colleagues wanted to know whether larger mammals also have the ability to perceive magnetic fields. They investigated this possibility by studying images of thousands of cattle captured on Google Earth, a website that stitches together satellite photographs to produce an image of the Earth’s surface.

Grazing animals are known to orient themselves in a way that minimizes wind chill from the north and maximizes the warmth of the sun when they are cold. The researchers therefore had to study a lot of cows grazing in lots of different places at different times of day, in order to average out these factors and see whether cattle could act like compass needles.

The researchers concluded that cattle do generally orient themselves in a north-south direction. This north-south preference has also been noted in flies, termites and honeybees. But unfortunately, even the high resolution of Google Earth is not powerful enough to tell which end of the cow is its head, and which its tail. The researchers were therefore unable to answer their research questions of whether cattle prefer to look north or south, and whether that differs in the northern and southern hemispheres.

58. Which of the following factors might affect Dr. Begall’s research result?

(A) Rainfall. (B) Earthquakes. (C) Location. (D) Cost.

59. What is the major finding of Dr. Begall’s study?

(A) Cattle point north-south. (B) Magnetism can’t be studied scientifically.

(C) Animals prefer to look south. (D) Google Earth is a reliable research tool.

III. Reading Comprehension 閱讀理解 8% 每題1

Read the paragraph. Then answer the questions.

People in some countries play music on very unusual instruments.

For example, bagpipes are named for a bag that the player pumps or blows air into. The player squeezes the bag to push air out through several pipes, one of which has finger holes that are used to play the melody. The other pipes play a sustained note called a drone, which is the harmony. Most people think bagpipes are Scottish, but people play them in many countries in Europe, as well as southwest Asia and northern Africa.

There are 2,000-year-old Australian aboriginal cave paintings that show people playing the didgeridoo, and some claim that it originated 40,000 years ago. Didgeridoos are long wooden tubes made from hollow trees. Players use a technique called circular breathing, inhaling through their noses while they blow into the instrument.

American inventor Benjamin Franklin observed that rubbing one’s wet fingers over the rims of glasses produced a variety of notes, depending on the glasses’ sizes. This observation inspired his “glass armonica,” a long tube with wine glasses mounted along it. Pressing a foot pedal spins the tube so that the player can create intricate melodies by touching the glasses.

21. Why was this article probably written?

A. To teach new information.

B. To warn about a dangerous habit.

C. To persuade people to study music.

D. To express an opinion about musical styles.

22. What special technique is used to play the didgeridoo?

A. Moving the instrument in a circle.

B. Playing more than one note at once.

C. Breathing in and out at the same time.

D. Pumping air from a bag into the instrument.

23. How is a bagpipe similar to a glass armonica?

A. They use long notes as a harmony.

B. You blow air into them to play them.

C. People use their hands to play them.

D. They were invented in the same place.

Neatly painted white farmhouses and well-kept barns rest among the rolling hills of Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. And no power lines ruin the scenic views. This is Amish country, where "Plain People" have lived a simple life for nearly 300 years.

Here you can glimpse what rural life was like 100 years ago – and thoroughly enjoy it!

Start exploring in the small, colorful city of Lancaster, founded in 1710. Take the walking tour through the heart of the old city. A guide dressed in costume will share stories from the city's history. Don’t forget to visit the Central Market where the locals go to shop. This market, the oldest continuously operating farmer’s market in the country, has fresh fruits and vegetables, meats and baked goods. You should also pick up some of the lovely Amish handicrafts, such as pillow covers and quilts. And try some Pennsylvania Dutch treats, like their delicious pies. The Amish sometimes eat these pies for breakfast!

The Tarahumara are an ancient tribe that lived in Mexico long before the Spanish conquered it. In their mountain homes, they preserved many aspects of their culture, such as traditional clothing. Tarahumara women’s outfits consist of skirts and koyera, colorful scarves worn on their heads. Many Tarahumara men prefer modern clothing, but they also wear traditional outfits: a koyera and a short skirt with a wide belt.

The Tarahumara diet consists mostly of corn, which they grow themselves. They also grow beans and zucchini for food and raise cattle, which they eat on special occasions. They supplement their diet with potatoes, fruit, wild roots and deer, which they catch by chasing them until the animals collapse from exhaustion.

Dancing plays a prominent role in Tarahumara society. Most families host dance parties, small and large, throughout the year. The dutuburi dance features women dancing in a curved line and men moving backward and forward in a straight line facing them. In the peyote dance, men and women follow two leaders in dancing around a fire and periodically shouting.

Tarahumara culture has withstood enormous social changes throughout history, and it must continue to do so if it is to survive in the future.
