    Large animals are actually less dangerous to hikers than smaller ones. Common sense tells us that we should avoid tigers, bears, and other large threatening animals. But smaller animals are actually more threatening than bigger animals. To overcome disadvantages of their size, small animals have developed useful weapons such as poison to protect themselves in the wild. Each year, only a few people are attacked by tigers or bears, and most of these incidents are caused by the people themselves. However, more people are killed by bites from small poisonous snakes than by these large animals. Even more people lose their lives from allergic reactions to common bee stings. For these reasons, hikers should be careful about small dangerous creatures. 1. 이 글의 제목으로 가장 알맞은 것은?

    I had volunteered for the charity picnic, and I needed to be there on time. Ms. Green, the charity president, was preparing this monthly event by herself. Lily complained, “Mom, I don’t feel like going today. We’ve volunteered more than five times this year.” She was eating slower than usual. I urged her, “Lily, don’t you remember we promised to help Ms. Green last month? Go and get dressed.” I stood by the door and pointed at my watch. She slowly pulled on her sweater and said, “I still don’t feel like going.” I started losing my patience. I responded, “Don’t you know Ms. Green has a lot of work to do for the picnic today? It’s time you started thinking about other people.” My voice was growing louder with each sentence. 2. 이 글에서 드러난 필자의 심경으로 알맞은 것은?

    Like Céanne, Gauguin was a Post-Impressionist who wanted to paint something deeper and more important. He abandoned his stockbroking career, and went to South America and Martinique looking for simplicity. But poverty and disease forced him back to France. Van Gogh invited him to Arles to help start an artists’ colony, but the plan fell apart when they fought over where the art should come from. Gauguin painted straight from the imagination. Van Gogh, clinging to reality as best he could, wanted to paint what he physically saw but infused with the emotion of his mind. His violent outburst sent Gauguin fleeing back to Paris for safety. From there he left the West for good. His next twelve years in Tahiti were a time of reflection on the true elements of humanity. He explored primitive representation there, but infectious disease, combined with artistic neglect and extreme poverty, killed him in 1903. 3. 다음 글의 Gauguin에 관한 내용과 일치하는 것을 모두 고르시오.

    An important factor in international travel, and in the long-term growth of the United States as a destination, is currency fluctuation. Following World War Ⅱ, the U.S. dollar was the strongest currency in the world. Other currencies were weak largely because many of the countries involved in World War Ⅱ were recovering from war damage. By the 1970s, however, that recovery was complete, and other currencies gained against the dollar. In the 1980s, economic growth in many of these countries accelerated the dollar’s weakening trend. The cheaper dollar, then, made the United States a travel bargain, and travelers to the United States and travel spending increased dramatically. This factor is a double-edged sword. When Asian currencies crashed in 1996 and 1997, the visitor flow from those countries to the United States slowed appreciably. More recent fluctuations have had similar effects. Now the U.S. dollar has rebounded slightly after weakening against other major currencies 4. 미국의 달러화에 대한 다음 글의 내용과 일치하는 것을 모두 고르시오.

    I was attending an all-day sales seminar and was anxious to shake hands with our sales manager, who had delivered an inspiring speech. After waiting in line for three hours, it was finally my turn to meet him. He never even looked at me. Instead he looked over my shoulder to see how much longer the line was. He wasn’t even aware that he was shaking my hand. And although I realized how tired he must have been, I, too, had been there for three hours and was just as tired! I was hurt and offended because he had treated me as if I didn’t even exist. Right on the spot I made a decision that if I ever became someone whom people waited in line to shake hands with, I’d give the person in front of me my undivided attention ─no matter how tired I was! 5. 이 지문에서 'I' 의 심경은 매우 기쁘고 활기차다.
