A. READ THE PASSAGE và CHOOSE THE BEST ANSWERS lớn THE QUESTIONS. (10 PTS)When Jules Verne wrote Journey khổng lồ the Center of the Earth in 1864, there were many conflicting theories about the nature of the Earth’s interior. Some geologists thought that it contained a highly compressed ball of incandescent gas, while others suspected that it consisted of separate shells, each made of a different material. Today, well over a century later, there is still little direct evidence of what lies beneath our feet. Most of our knowledge of the Earth’s interior comes not from mines or boreholes, but from the study of seismic waves – powerful pulses of energy released by earthquakes.

The way that seismic waves travel shows that the Earth’s interior is far from uniform. The continents & the seabed are formed by the crust – a thin sphere of relatively light, solid rock. Beneath the crust lies the mantle, a very different layer that extends approximately halfway to lớn the Earth’s center.Therethe rock is the subject of a battle between increasing heat & growing pressure.

In its high levels, the mantle is relatively cool; at greater depths, high temperatures make the rock behave more lượt thích a liquid than a solid. Deeper still, the pressure is even more intense, preventing the rock from melting in spite of a higher temperature.

Beyond a depth of around 2,900 kilometers, a great change takes place & the mantle gives way to lớn the core. Some seismic waves cannot pass through the core và others are bent byit. From this & other evidence, geologists conclude that the outer chip core is probably liquid, with a solid center. It is almost certainly made of iron, mixed with smaller amounts of other elements such as nickel.

A good many technical people become irate when you điện thoại tư vấn a computer a giant brain. They insist that a computer does only what thinking humans have planned lớn have it do.

To me the controversy boils down lớn a definition of the word think. There is no area in physiology that is less understood than the human brain. Practically all that is known is that the brain contains some ten billion tiny cells called neurons. (3) _________. The completely materialistic view is that neurons, along with an extraordinary network of nerve-communication lines, comprise all that is khổng lồ the brain. But such an explanation fails to trương mục for how the brain originates thought.

(4) _______. The brain has roughly a million times as many components as the best computer. On the other hand, the difference may lie in a spiritual factor, embraced by religion. At any rate, a machine cannot exercise không tính tiền will or originate anything-not yet. Whether it ever will be still an xuất hiện argument.

Computers can already vì chưng a lot of surprising things, which include predicting the weather. (5) ________, but this, as well as most of the other tasks now performed by the thinking machines, is routine, requiring thinking of a very low order.

A. Apparently neurons are elementary memory units, capable of storing the same kind of information “bits” that a machine can store.

B.The machine is able khổng lồ make forecasts by assimilating vast quantities of data

C.The machine is composed of different elements rather than memory units

D.If that machine could have thought, would it not have circumvented him?

E.Evidently, he thinks machines can think.
