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

In today's competitive world, what responsible parents would not want to give their children but the best possible start in life? For this reason, many parents want their children, often as young as ten months old, to become familiar with computers. They seem to think that if their children grow up with computers, they will be better equipped to face the challenges of the future. 

No one has proved that computers make children more creative or more intelligent. The truth may even be the opposite. Educational psychologists claim that too much exposure to computers, especially for the very young, may negatively affect normal brain development. Children gain valuable experience in the world from their interaction with physical objects. Ten-month-old babies may benefit more from bumping their heads or putting various objects in their mouths than they will from staring at eye-catching cartoons. A four-year-old child can improve hand-eye coordination and understand cause and effect better by experimenting with a crayon than by moving a cursor around a computer screen. So, as educational psychologists suggest, instead of government funding going to more and more computer classes, it might be better to devote resources to music and art programs. 

It is ludicrous to think that children will fall behind if they are not exposed to computers from an early age. Time is too precious to spend with a "mouse". Now is the time when they should be out there learning to ride a bike. There will be time later on for them to start banging away at keyboards. 

Children who spend a lot of time on their computers ________.

  • will suffer from brain damage
  • do not necessarily make more progress than those who don't
  • tend to have more accidents than those who don't
  • tend to like music and art more than those who don't

What would be an appropriate title for this passage?

  • More computers mean brighter future
  • Never too early to start
  • Computers in schools
  • Let kids be kids

The pronoun "they" in paragraph 2 refers to _______.

  • heads
  • mouths
  • babies
  • objects

What is TRUE according to the passage?

  • It is better for children to take computer lessons than art lessons.
  • Parents should not put off buying a computer for their children.
  • There is no evidence that children who use computers are cleverer than those who do not.
  • Computers seriously harm children's eyesight.

The word "ludicrous" paragraph 3 mostly means ________.

  • sensible
  • ridiculous
  • humorous
  • ironic
