Directions for question number 13 to 18:

Read the following passage caregully and answer the questions that follow it.

A manned expedition to Mars is on the cards. Dr. Ernst Stuhlinger, an American space-scientist, believes that from every point of view Mars is more interesting than the moon. A manned Mars-probe might uncover traces of a civilization there that died when the weak gravity could no longer retain oxygen. There might well be archaeological remains to prove it.

            For Mars is the only planet where some form of advanced life could once have been sustained. Indeed as early as 1965, the unmanned craft Mariner 4 observed the planet from just over 6,000 miles away and made a discovery that could lend support to theories about life on Mars. Observation revealed that there were for fewer craters made by meteorites than had been predicted. Thus most of craters must have been eroded, possibly by wind and water. Other unmanned crafts have since been sent to Mars. But, in the long run, only a manned expedition can settle the enigma of whether life exists outside our own world

            A manned trip to Mars has been declared to be the next logical step. It has been suggested that colonizing the planet is within the realms of possibility. The first such journey is likely to take place in the late 1980s, 1980 to be precise, when Mars is closest to Earth at 35 million miles.

            To carry out this mission economically, to have the crew back after only eighteen months, special electric rocket propulsion would have to be used. This would be the spaceship to reach the relatively fantastic speeds of between 32,000 and 112,00m/hour. Ambitious though this may sound, Mars itself would be merely a stepping-stone actual fact.

            Flight to the stars is the real and ultimate objective of all manned space programmes. Yet at present the very idea of inter-stellar flight sounds too far- fetched for space officials to talk about it often.

            Answer the following questions, choose the most suitable alternatives.
