After a terrible electrical accident, which caused him to become both blind and deaf, the whole world became completely dark and quiet for Robert Edwards for almost ten years. The loss of sight and hearing threw him into such sorrow that he tried a few times to put an end to his life. His family, especially his wife, did their best to tend and comfort him and finally he regained the will to live.
One hot summer afternoon, he was taking a walk with a stick near his house when a thunderstorm started all at once. He stood under a large tree to avoid getting wet, but he was struck by the lightning. Witnesses thought he was dead but he woke up some 20 minutes later lying face down in muddy water at the base of the tree. He was trembling badly, but when he opened his eyes, he could hardly believe what he saw: a plough and a wall. When Mrs Edwards came running up to him, shouting to their neighbors to call for help, he could see her and hear her voice for the first time in nearly ten years.
The news of Robert regaining his sight and hearing quickly spread, and many doctors came to examine him. Most of them said that he regained his sight and hearing from the shock he got from the lightning. However, none of them could give a convincing answer as to why this should have happened. The only reasonable explanation given by one doctor was that, since Robert lost his sight and hearing as a result of a sudden shock, perhaps, the only way for him to regain them was by another sudden shock.
41. The reason for Robert’s attempts to kill himself was that .
A. he had to live in a dark and silent world
B. a terrible traffic accident happened to him
C. he was struck by the lightning once more
D. nobody in the world cared about him
42. What was Robert doing when he was struck by the lightning?
A. Taking a walk with a stick.
B. Driving a car.
C. Sheltering from the rain under a tree.
D. Lying on the ground.
43. What did Robert see first when he regained his sight after the shock?
A. A plough and a wall.
B. His neighbors.
C. His wife who called for help to save him.
D. Many doctors surrounding him.
44. Which of the following statements is NOT true according to the passage?
A. Robert had been deaf and blind for nearly ten years.
B. Robert hid himself under the tree for 20 minutes.
C. Robert could hear his wife’s shouting for help when he woke up.
D. The family’s love helped Robert regain confidence to live.
45. We can infer from the text that ________.
A. many doctors came because Robert was badly injured
B. a sudden injury in the head led to Robert’s recovery
C. Robert’s wife sent for doctors immediately after the shock
D. there was no accurate explanation for Robert’s recovery
The temperature is sharply rising with each passing day. People, including many experts, find it difficult to slow down the process. However, leaving coal and major fossil fuels in the ground could help to limit climate change in the future, according to a new study. That is to say, a third of oil reserves on the earth, half of gas reserves and over 80 percent of current coal reserves should not be used before the year 2050. If we are to prevent global temperatures from rising above 2 degrees Celsius in the near future, we ought to carry some measures to severely control the emissions from factories vehicles and even our daily-life cooking. However, it is a goal that seems to be impossible in our eyes.
“Policy makers in different countries must realize that their attempt to completely use the fossil fuels within their countries is wholly incompatible(矛盾的) with their hope to reach the 2-degree goal,” Dr. Christophe Mc Glade at University College London’s Energy Institute said in a statement. “If they go ahead with developing their own resources,” he added, “they must be asked which reserves elsewhere should remain unburned in order for the carbon budget not to go beyond the limit.”
It’s not surprising to see how tapping into these unused reserves would be attractive. Energy-related industry is a big business all over the world. There are many coal reserves in China, Russia and the United States, along with over 260 thousand million barrels of oil reserves in the Middle East. Not to mention that oil is currently being developed in the Arctic. Companies spent over $670 billion last year in the expansion of fossil fuels, but according to the new model used in this latest study, developers may need to rethink their plans to develop these underground resources so as to make some contributions to control the world temperature from rising high in the future.
“We’ve now got practical figures of the quantities and locations of fossil fuels that should remain unused in trying to keep within the 2-degree temperature limit,” added Mc Glade. World leaders and policy makers should take the advice to heart, because a recent IPCC report warned that if immediate and great actions are not taken soon, climate change will cause irreversible(不可逆轉的) impacts on environments worldwide, leaving the world an unsafe place for us to live in.
46. According to Paragraph 1, our goal is to .
A. discover more fossil fuels for the future generation
B. slow down the climate change
C. refuse to use reserves on the earth
D. keep the temperature rise below 2 degrees Celsius
47. The underlined word “emissions” in Paragraph 1 refers to .
A. things that are sent out into the air
B. products that are made from fossil fuels
C. factors that cause the climate change
D. changes that happen after temperature rise
48. According to what Mc Glade said in Paragraph 2, all countries should .
A. make full use of their fossil fuels
B. work together towards the 2-degree goal
C. find better ways to dig out the coal
D. increase the global carbon budget
49. We can infer from Paragraph 3 that great efforts have been made in .
A. digging out the oil in the Middle East
B. getting people to rethink their fuel plans
C. developing fossil fuels around the world
D. developing energy-related industry worldwide
50. What is the author’s attitude towards the future of temperature control?
A. Confident. B. Negative. C. Satisfied. D. Unclear.
It’s hard to find Alice Munro in the media. Even after she won the 2013 Nobel Prize in Literature, the Canadian writer just appeared for a quick interview and then dropped out of sight. On Dec 29th, she still didn’t seek the spotlight when she was named one of the five Women of the Year by the Financial Times.
In Munro’s eyes, ordinary lives always hide larger dramas. So she records what we casually think of as the everyday actions of normal people. She often focuses on life in her hometown, a small village in Ontario which she is most familiar with. She writes about the ordinary things in the village — trees in the Ontario wilderness, poor country schools and long last illnesses. Above all, she talks about girls and women who have seemingly ordinary lives but struggle against daily misfortune.
She has a special talent for uncovering the extraordinary in the ordinary. These are ordinary people, ordinary stories, but she has the magic. Her precise language, depth of detail and the logic of her storytelling have made her stories inviting.
Runaway, one of Munro’s representative works, is a good example of her writing style. One of the stories centers on the life of an ordinary woman Carla, who lives in a small Canadian town with her husband Clark. The story slowly forms a picture of Carla, trapped in a bad marriage, her unhappiness building into desperation until she decides to flee. The story of Carla is a story of the power and betrayals of love. It is about lost children and lost chances that we can all find in life. There is pain beneath the surface, like a needle in the heart.
Since she published her first collection of short stories in 1968, Munro has won many awards, with the Nobel Prize being her biggest honor. On Oct 10th, 2013, the Nobel Prize committee named Munro the “master of the contemporary short story”.
51. We learn from Paragraph 1 that Alice Munro .
A. didn't get on well with the media
B. was surprised at winning the Nobel Prize
C. didn't value the title of Women of the Year
D. remained modest though very successful
52. Many of Alice Munro’s works .
A. center on the happy life of country women
B. are about betrayals of love and violence
C. focus on everyday life of ordinary people
D. are romantic stories setting in her hometown
53. What makes Alice Munro’s stories fascinating according to the text?
A. The complicated plots.
B. Her rich imagination.
C. The humorous language.
D. Her writing techniques.
54. In her representative work Runaway, Carla .

B. is a faithful wife to her husband
C. leads a happy life with Clark

得 分 第三部分：寫作
第一節：閱讀表達 (共 5 小題；每小題 2 分，滿分10分)
Science has a lot of uses. It can uncover laws of nature, cure diseases, make bombs, and help bridges to stand up. Indeed science is so good at what it does that there’s always a temptation (誘惑) to drag it into problems where it may not be helpful. David Brooks, author of The Social Animal: The Hidden Sources of Love, Character, and Achievement, appears to be the latest in a long line of writers who have failed to resist the temptation.
Brooks gained fame for several books. His latest book The Social Animal, however, is more ambitious and serious than his earlier books. It is an attempt to deal with a set of weighty topics. The book focuses on big questions: What has science revealed about human nature? What are the sources of character? And why are some people happy and successful while others aren’t?
To answer these questions, Brooks surveys a wide range of disciplines. Considering this, you might expect the book to be a dry recitation (背誦) of facts. But Brooks has structured his book in an unorthodox (非常規的), and perhaps unfortunate way. Instead of introducing scientific theories, he tells a story, within which he tries to make his points, perhaps in order to keep the reader’s attention. So as Harold and Erica, the hero and heroine in his story, live through childhood, we hear about the science of child development and as they begin to date we hear about the theory of sexual attraction. Brooks carries this through to the death of one of his characters.
On the whole, Brooks’ story is acceptable if uninspired. As one would expect, his writing is mostly clear and, to be fair, some chapters stand out above the rest. I enjoyed, for instance, the chapter in which Harold discovers how to think on his own. While Harold and Erica are certainly not strong or memorable characters, the more serious problems with The Social Animal lie elsewhere. These problems partly involve Brooks’ attempt to translate his tale into science.
56. What is the main idea of Paragraph 2? (No more than 10 words)
57. Why does Brooks use a story to introduce scientific theories? (No more than 15 words)
58. According to The Social Animal, how can we learn about the science of child development? (No more than 10 words)
59. Please explain the underlined word “weighty” in English. (No more than 1 word)
60. Do you like Brooks’ way of dealing with science in The Social Animal? Why? (No more than 20 words)
規則 regulations 讓路 give way to 闖紅燈 run the red light

Or: By following the story of living through childhood.
59. Serious. Or: Important. Or: Significant. Or: Great. Or: Big. Or: Crucial. Or: Heavy….
60. Yes, I do. Because he introduces scientific theories through a story, which is much easier for people to understand.
61. (One possible version: )
At present, more and more cars have entered the homes of ordinary people. But what worries us a lot is some drivers’ bad quality. Their behavior harms the safety of others and themselves. This phenomenon is against the development of our society. Then, I have some ideas for you to be good drivers.
First, all of us must obey the traffic regulations. Second, you shouldn’t throw things out of the car window. Some cleaners are hit by the passing cars and die per year while they are picking up the things you have thrown away. Next, give way to passers-by politely at the crossroads and you mustn’t run the red light. Last but not least, always remember: your families are waiting for you at home.
I really hope all the drivers can take action from now on and try to be good Chinese drivers.
