今年閱讀測驗的主題是“顏色”,字彙及句型結構都不算困難,相當生活化。

 

Colors have a direct and powerful impact on the way we feel and

 

react to our surroundings. Some colors excite us, while others soothe

 

and calm us. For example, when the Blackfriar Bridge in London was

 

painted green, suicide jumps from the bridge decreased by 34%.

Research reveals that people have similar emotional responses to

 

specific colors and in general, the brighter the color, the stronger the

 

response.

 

Blue, for example, creates a tranquil, quiet feeling in many

 

people. Blue makes it easier for people to resolve conflicts and

10

accept themselves. Blue also seems to act as an appetite

 

suppressant. People snack less out of a refrigerator when the

 

refrigerator light is blue. And they eat less when they use blue dishes.

 

Green has a soothing effect. People who work in green rooms

 

have fewer stomachaches and feel less pain generally.

15

Orange improves mental clarity and promotes happiness.

 

Orange increases the flow of oxygen to the brain.

 

In a red room, people are more likely to feel angry and tense.

 

Red has also been found to stimulate the autonomic nervous system.

 

Yellow produces rather different emotional responses depending

20

on its brightness. People in a bright yellow room feel tired. Babies cry

 

more in bright yellow rooms and husbands and wives fight more. Pale

 

yellow, on the other hand, creates a feeling of harmony.

解析

做閱讀測驗一定要從題目看起,所以與題目無關的段落可以不看。例如文章中共提到藍、綠、橘、紅、黃五種顏色,但綠、紅、黃都沒有問題,所以這3段可不看,節省時間。
