Read the passage and choose the correct answer to each question.

The word robot first appeared in a 1921 stage play by Czech writer Karel Capek. In the play, a man makes the machine that can think, which he calls a robot and which ends up killing its owner.In the 1940s, the American science fiction writer Isaac Asimov wrote a series of stories about robots and invented the term robotics, the science of robots. Meanwhile, in the real world, the first robots were developed by an engineer, Joseph F. Engelberger, and an inventor, George C. Devol. Together they started Unimation, a manufacturing company that produces the first real robot in 1961, called the Unimate. Robots of this type were installed at a General Motors automobile plant and proved to be a success. They worked reliably and saved money for General Motors, so other companies were soon acquiring robots as well.

These industrial robots were nothing like the terrifying creatures that can often be seen in science fiction films. In fact, these robots looked and behaved nothing like humans. They were simply pieces of computer-controlled machinery, with metal “arms” or “hands”. Since they were made of metal, they could perform certain jobs that were difficult or dangerous for humans, particularly jobs that involve high heat. And since robots were tireless and never got hungry, sleepy, or distracted, they were useful for tasks that would be tiring or boring for humans. Industrial robots have been improved over the years, and today they are used in many factories around the world. Though the use of robots has meant the loss of some jobs, at the same time other jobs have been created in the design, development, and production of the robots.

Read the following passage and choose the correct answer to each of the questions underneath.

There are a lot of myths about the human brain. We are going to tell you a little about these myths, and we are also going to give you the truth.

One of the biggest myths is that we only use 10 percent of our brains. The next part of that myth is that if we can learn to use the rest of our brains, then we will be much smarter. People say this all the time, but it is absolutely not true. The truth is that although we don’t know everything about the human brain, we know that each part of it has an important function. Modern scientists call the “10 percent myth” ridiculous.

The other most popular myth is about being “right-brained” or “left-brained”. According to this myth, people who use the right side of their brains tend to be more artistic and creative. People who use the left side of their brains tend to be better at maths and science. This myth is as popular as the 10 percent myth, and it is also wrong. In 2013, a study at an American university examined the right brain and left brain myth. According to the study, we use both sides of our brains equally.

It is true that we use different parts of our brains for different things: We use our left side for language more, and our right side when we need to pay attention. But there is no evidence that creative people use the right side more, or that scientific people use the left side more.

We have talked about myths, so let’s look at a few interesting facts about the brain. First of all, the brain feels no pain. Second, about 75 percent of the brain is made of water. It is also the fattest organ in your body. Another interesting fact about the brain is that around the time you turn 18 years old, it stops growing.

According to the myth, what is true about the left side of our brains?

  • Creative people use that side more.
  • Hardworking people use that side more.
  • Scientific people use that side more.
  • Young people use that side more.

What can we say about the left brain - right brain myth?

  • It is popular as the 10 percent myth.
  • It is actually correct.
  • It is older than the 10 percent myth.
  • Only university students believe it.

Which of the following is true about the human brain?

  • Each part of the brain has a specific function.
  • People don't care about the 10 percent myth.
  • Scientists partly agree with the common myths.
  • It cannot help us feel pain.

This article is mainly about _______.

  • the biggest myth about the human brain
