Many researchers have been interested in whether or not an individual’s birth order has an effect on intelligence. One of the first studies was carried out in the Netherlands during the early 1970s. 41 Thetest was called the “Raven,” which is similar to the I.Q. test. The researchers found a strong relationship between the birth order
of the test takers and their scores on the Raven test. 42
In 1975, Zajonc and Markus developed the confluence theory to explain the negative effect of birth order on intelligence involving the data from the Dutch. 43
However, Rutherford and Sewell in 1991
tested the theory and found no support for it.
They concluded that birth order effects did not exist.44
On one side there are Zajonc and Markus, who state that birth order effects may be explained solely by family size and the spacing of births. With short birth intervals, increasing order of birth will be
associated with lower intelligence levels. But with long birth intervals, this pattern may be reversed.
45 who studied more than 10,000 American high school
They show that the confluence model does not explain any relationship between birth order and intelligence that may exist in the American data. Up to date, there is no agreement between these opposing views. And such a debate may continue for years to come.
(A) There are definitely two sides to this issue.
(B) Scores decreased as the family size increased and also with birth order.
(C) An intelligence test was administered to over 350,000 Dutch males when they turned 19 years of age.
(D) On the other side are Rutherford and Sewell, who studied more than 10,000 American high school
(E) Since then, the theory has been elaborated and even extended to explain the positive effect of birth order on intelligence.

第 46 至 49 題為題組
In recent years, a craze for height has hit hard in industrializing Asian countries like Taiwan, Hong Kong and China, which boast seven of the world’s 10 tallest buildings. The current tallest, at 101 floors, is the Taipei 101 in Taiwan, though Toronto’s CN Tower is 180 feet higher, largely because of its huge antenna.Yet, in the Persian Gulf city of Dubai, the world’s tallest building-to-be is already well under construction.
Its pilings are already in place, plunging 160 feet into the earth. When it’s finished, visitors will swoon over this city from 123 stories high, if not more. Currently, however, its exact height is still kept a secret to potential competitors in
the world’s race for the title of the tallest skyscraper. While New York built skyscrapers because land was scarce, Dubai is doing it to get on the world map. “It’s image, clearly,” said Richard Rosan, president of its construction firm. “There’s no practical reason for having a building this tall. You can’t be scared of heights if you want to work on the top floor.”
On paper, the Dubai Tower looks something like a giant space shuttle about to be launched into the clouds. Designers say the silvery steel-and-glass building will restore to the Arab world the honor of hosting the earth’s tallest structure—a title lost in 1889 when the Eiffel Tower upset the 43-century reign of Egypt’s Great Pyramid of Giza.
46. According to the passage, how tall will the Dubai Tower be?
(A) At least 43 stories higher than Toronto’s CN Tower.
(B) 180 feet higher than Toronto’s CN Tower.
(C) At least 22 stories higher than the Taipei 101.
(D) 160 feet higher than the Taipei 101.
47. The main purpose for building the Dubai Tower is __________.
(A) for people who are not scared of heights to work on the top floor
(B) for the construction company to maintain its business
(C) for the Arab world to honor its industrialization
(D) for the city of Dubai to gain world fame
48. Which of the following is true of the Dubai Tower?
(A) It will include a 160-feet huge antenna.
(B) It may be built in the shape of a space shuttle.
(C) It uses silver as the major construction material.
(D) It has already been built up to 180 feet above the ground.
49. The word upset in the last paragraph means __________.
(A) distorted an important fact (B) knocked something over accidentally
(C) defeated a strong competitor (D) made someone feel sad, worried, or angry

Dr. Thompson was pleased. Just three months after moving to the small Midwestern town, he had been invited to address an evening meeting of the Chamber of Commerce. Here was the perfect opportunity to show his knowledge of modern medicine and to get his practice off to a flourishing start. With this in mind,the doctor prepared carefully.
On the night of his speech, Dr. Thompson was delighted to see that the meeting hall was full. After being introduced, he strode confidently to the lectern and announced his topic: “Recent Advances in Medicine.” He began with a detailed discussion of Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease, a rare brain disorder that had recently been covered in the New England Journal of Medicine. Next he outlined the progress that had been made in studying immune system disorders.

Just about this time, halfway through his speech, Dr. Thompson began to notice a certain restlessness in his audience. People were murmuring and shuffling their feet. Someone in the fourth row seemed to be glancing at a newspaper. Nevertheless, Dr. Thompson plowed on. He had saved the best for last. He quoted extensively from an article in the Lancet about genetic research, feeling sure his audience would be impressed by his familiarity with this prestigious British medical journal. Then the speech was over. Dr. Thompson had expected to be surrounded by enthusiastic people, congratulating him and asking questions. Instead he found himself standing alone. Finally the president of the Chamber of Commerce came up to him. “Something tells me,” said Dr. Thompson, “that my speech was not very successful. I can’t understand it. I worked so hard to make it interesting.” “Oh, it was a fine speech,”replied the president. “But maybe it would have gone over better with a different audience. Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease is not exactly a factor in these people’s everyday experience. You know, here we are in January. If you’d talked about ways to avoid getting the flu, you’d have had them on the edge of their seats!”
50. What is the main message of the passage?
(A) A good speaker has to be fully prepared regardless of the audience.
(B) A good speaker should display his learning to the audience in an enthusiastic way.
(C) The more a speaker wants to please the audience, the more likely he will succeed.
(D) The key to a successful speech is to make it meaningful and relevant to the audience.
51. What was the reaction of the audience to Dr. Thompson’s speech?
(A) They were bored because the medical topics were not their daily concern.
(B) They did not understand him so they could only discuss among themselves.
(C) They were impressed by his familiarity with advanced research in medicine.
(D) They congratulated him on the success of the speech and asked him questions.
52. Which topic was NOT mentioned in the doctor’s speech?
(A) Genetic research. (B) Flu.
(C) Immune system disorder. (D) Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease.
53. What does “had them on the edge of their seats” mean in the last sentence of the passage?
(A) Had them stand up. (B) Took them by surprise.
(C) Caught their full attention. (D) Aroused their suspicion.

When a company ventures into new markets, it will need to face various problems. These problems can be broadly classified into several categories, including (1) cultural factors, (2) economic issues, (3) geographical factors, (4) political/legal issues, (5) religious factors, and (6) technological issues. Find an appropriate category for the problems discussed in each of the following paragraphs.
A company will face problems of this kind, as it is an alien when compared to the business climate of the country. Coca-Cola, for instance, was faced with such a problem in India, when it was given a choice of either to reveal its secret formula or leave the country. Coke chose to leave. But when it was welcomed back after several years, it was subjected to harassment and constant interference from the political activists.
54. The most appropriate category for the above paragraph is ______.
(A) religious factors (B) economic issues (C) geographical factors (D) political/legal issues

Problems of this kind can make an impact on the properties of a product. This impact forces a company to adapt its products in order to meet the needs of the local market. To solve the problems, the level of economic development in a market should be assessed, for example, by the level of revenue, buying power of local consumers, and by the state of infrastructure in the foreign market. These indicators can provide vital information to the company regarding its marketing strategy.
55. The most appropriate category for the above paragraph is ______.
(A) cultural factors (B) economic issues (C) geographical factors (D) technological issues
These problems are perhaps the biggest issue a researcher can come
across while studying new markets. This is because markets that can be classified
as similar on various grounds tend to be dissimilar when it comes to this particular aspect. There are differences even within the same country. Accordingly, travel advertising in Canada is divided between the English audience and the French audience. While pictures of travel advertisements show a wife alone for the English
audience, a man and wife are shown for the French audience.
This is done because the French are more bound by family ties.
56. The most appropriate category for the above paragraph is ______.
(A) cultural factors (B) economic issues (C) geographical factors (D) political/legal issuesSource(s): 朋友‧網站
