46 – 50. Choose the item among A, B, C or D that best answers the question about the passage:

Until recently, the ‘Science of the future’ was supposed to be electronics and artificial intelligence. Today it seems more and more likely that the next breakthrough in technology will be brought about through a combination of those

two Sciences with organic chemistry and genetic engineering. This Science is the combination of biotechnology.

Organic chemistry enables us to produce marvelous synthetic materials. However, it is still difficult to manufacture anything that has the capacity of wool to conserve heat and also to absorb moisture. Nothing that we have been able to produce so far comes anywhere near the combination of strength, lightness, and flexibility that we find in the bodies of ordinary insects.

Nevertheless, scientists in the laboratory have already succeeded in ‘growing’ a material that has many of the characteristics of human skin. The next step may well be ‘biotech heart and eyes’ which can replace diseased organs in human beings. This will not be rejected by the body, as in the case with organs from humans.

The application of biotechnology to energy production seems even more promising. In 1996, the famous science-fiction writer Arthur c. Clarke, many of whose previous predictions have come true, said that we may soon be able to develop remarkably cheap and renewable sources of energy. Some of these power sources will be biological. Clarke and others have warned us repeatedly that sooner or later we will have to give up our dependence on non-renewable power sources. Coal, oil and gas are indeed convenient. However, using them also means creating dangerously high levels of pollution. It will be impossible to meet the growing demand for energy without increasing that pollution to catastrophic levels unless we develop power sources that are both cheaper and cleaner.

46. According to the text, the Science of the future is likely to be?

A. Electronics. B. Biotechnology.

c. Genetic engineering. D. Nuclear technology.

47. Organic chemistry helps to produce materials that are ……

A. almost as strong, light, and flexible as an insect’s body

B. almost as good as wool

C. not as good as natural materials

D. stronger, lighter, and better than natural materials

48. According to the text, it may soon be possible …….

A. to make something as good as human skin

B. to cure certain diseases that damage human organs

C. to take an organ from one human and give it to another human

D. to make useful substitutes for human hearts and eyes

49. In 1996, Arthur c. Clarke predicted………..

A. new and better ways of heating and lighting homes, offices, and factories

B. newer and better ways of using oil, gas, and coal

C. that using oil, gas, and coal would lead to very high levels of pollution

D. that we may not be able to meet future demand for energy

50. What does the text say is one of the worst problems caused by the use of coal, gas, and oil?

A. They are no longer as easy to use as they once were.

B. They are so cheap that people waste them.

C. They are too expensive for poorer people in many parts of the world.

D. They are very bad for the world around us.
