三、解答

1.multiply指「以倍數成長」,所以「九九乘法表」為multiplication table

2.沮喪的形容詞depressed,名詞depression

3.depression亦可用於「經濟蕭條」

4.緊張的tense = nervous,名詞tension(全名為nervous tension)

5.sober up 由酒醉中清醒,wake up由睡眠中清醒

6.順便另提一字「酒測」,並非〞alcohol test〞,而是〞sobriety〞

四、中文

A:我的內心七上八下的,我得喝杯酒,靜一靜!

B:還要喝?你才喝了一杯啊!

A:但是我心中焦慮不堪,再喝一杯就可以放鬆了!

B:你知道我的看法嗎?你以為喝酒可以解除麻煩,結果煩惱只會更多;你以為喝酒可以讓你感到堅強,其實它只會使你感到更軟弱;你以為喝酒可以讓你心情放鬆,結果你只會更沮喪!

A:但是我覺得好緊張喔!拜託啦!

B:你們酒喝多的人老是怪罪於外界的壓力,但其實就是上癮而不單是酒精或毒品上癮,都是體內已經起了化學反應作用所致,拜託你趕快醒醒吧!
