Sir Isaac Newton, the English scientist and mathematician, was one of the most important figures of the 17th century scientific revolution. One of his greatest achievement was the discovery of the three laws of motion, (26) are still used today. But he also had a very unusual personality. Some people would say he was actually insane.

His father died before he was born, and his mother soon remarried. The young Isaac hated his stepfather so much that he once (27) to burn his house down - when his stepfather and mother were still inside! Fortunately he did not, and he went on to graduate from Cambridge without being thrown into prison.

Isaac's first published work was a theory of light and color. When another scientist wrote a paper

criticizing this theory Isaac flew into an uncontrollable rage The scientist (28) for the criticism

was a man called Robert Hooke. He was head of the Royal Society, and one of the most respected scientists in the country. (29) , this made no difference to Isaac, who refused to speak to him for over a year.

The simple fact was that Isaac found it impossible to have a calm discussion with anyone. As soon as someone said something that he disagreed with, he would lose his temper.

Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or D to indicate the correct answer to each of the question.

Women often complain that the men in their lives are not romantic enough. But men sometimes have trouble expressing their feelings, often resorting to cheesy Hallmark cards or pricey bejeweled baubles to do the job for them. But there is a far better way to be romantic and it doesn’t involve spending a fortune or even opening your mouth.

In the days before courting consisted of hanging out and getting drinks, courting was a formal and dignified endeavor. Symbols were used to express feelings and thoughts deemed too special for mere words. During the Victorian Era, a whole romantic language developed around the giving and receiving of flowers. Everything from the type and size of the flower to the way it was held or presented conveyed layers of meaning and communicated a gentleman’s feelings and intentions. Each bouquet contained a secret message for a lady to eagerly interpret and endlessly dissect.

These days giving flowers has become a somewhat ho-hum cliché. Resurrecting this Victorian tradition will infuse the gesture with new life and romance and bring back some of the subtly, mystery, and fun of courtship. Your lady will swoon that you put far more thought into your selection of flowers than grabbing a bouquet out of the case at Wal-Mart. You’ll come off as a real gentleman and a hopeless romantic. It can become an amazing tradition you’ll both enjoy. Seriously, women eat this stuff up.

Of course, even women nowadays have forgotten the meanings of flowers. So buy your lady a flower dictionary. And keep a copy for yourself (it’s important that you both use the same reference, as the meanings were never set in stone and can sometimes vary from book to book). Then, each time you present her with a bouquet, she can search the volume to find what secret messages you have embedded in the flowers.

Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or D to indicate the correct answer to each of the questions from 36 to 42.

Artificial intelligence (AI) and related technologies are increasingly prevalent in business and society; besides, they have been applied to education. These technologies have the potential to transform many aspects of the teaching - learning process.

Basic activities in education like grading can be automated with the help of AI. At educational institutes, marking a large number of tests and assignments is tedious work. Teachers often find that grading takes up a considerable amount of time which can be used to interact with students and prepare for class. AI, at present, may not be able to actually replace human grading; however, it's getting pretty close. Nearly all kinds of multiple choice and fill-in-the blank testing can now be performed by Al-driven machines, and automated grading of student writing may not be far behind. Essay-grading softwares are still in their infancy, yet they will be fully developed over the coming years, allowing teachers to focus more on classroom activities and professional development.

Learners can also get additional support from AI. For instance, tutoring programs based on artificial intelligence already exist to help students with basic courses of mathematics, writing, foreign language, etc. With the rapid pace of technological advancement in recent years, sophisticated tutoring systems which can help students learn high order thinking and stimulate their creativity will not be a pipe dream. Moreover, Al programs can give learners useful feedback and assistance. Some schools, especially those with online courses, are using AI systems to monitor students' progress. These systems not only offer students advice on individual courses but also help students choose majors in accordance with areas where they succeed or struggle.

For better or worse, AI systems have taken place in certain types of classroom activities. In the next decades, their influences will extend significantly, which offers both teacher and students a much wider range of services.
