Read the passage and choose the correct answer from a, b, c or d:

It’s amazing and difficult to believe, but we’re actually less familiar with the depths of the
oceans on our own planet than we are with the surface of Mars. Robots are now being used
increasingly to carry out the task of gathering data about the world below the waves. These
specially designed robots are able to obtain data more quickly and efficiently than human beings.
However, many of the robots, currently being used for this purpose, require batteries which run
out after a certain amount of time underwater and, therefore, they need to return to be
recharged regularly. As a result, they cannot stay underwater long enough to reach the deepest
points of the ocean, yet these tend to be the areas that scientists are most keen to learn more
Consequently, a lot of excitement has been produced by a technological innovation which
involves using the energy generated by the robot’s movement from warmer to colder waters and
the other way round. All the robot has to do is move through the sea and enough energy is
generated to charge its battery at no cost whatsoever, and the result is that data can be collected
for significantly longer periods of time.
It looks as though this kind of technology will increase the amount of the ocean that
underwater expeditions can investigate by allowing them to do this for much longer periods of
time. Nevertheless, scientists who like to create a map of the whole ocean still face massive
challenges when it comes to the logistics and finances that are necessary for the completion of

this task. Some estimates have suggested that even with innovations such as the one described in
this text, at least 3,000 robots would have to be in operation for a period of ten years in order to
map the whole ocean.

43. What is the disadvantage of the robots mentioned in the first paragraph?

Read the passage and choose the correct answer from a, b, c or d:
When we talk about ‘lifelong learning’ we’re usually referring to studies that people undertake
or courses that they choose to participate in when they’re no longer at the age when you would
expect them to be at school or university. The idea behind ‘lifelong learning’ is that gaining new
knowledge and developing new skills is an ongoing journey and not just something that we do
while we’re at school to gain specific academic qualifications. For this reason, a lot of lifelong
learning is a matter of learning something for pleasure or enjoyment. People who like visiting a
particular country on vacation might choose to learn the language of that country, so they can
communicate with the locals better on their next trip.
Often lifelong learning has a more practical purpose for the people who participate in it,
however, as it can definitely help improve your career prospects and usually also increase your
income. Similarly, the social and emotional advantages of lifelong learning shouldn’t be
overlooked. If you’re feeling lonely or isolated, for example, learning something together in a
group, whether it’s on or offline, can help reduce those feelings. Another advantage of lifelong
learning though is that you can often do it whenever and wherever you are as you can learn from
books you can borrow from the library or just have a go at painting a picture and then think of
what you could improve to do it a little better the next time.
However, people are able to learn, a great sense of achievement can be gained from setting
goals, such as being able to speak a foreign language, and then being able to achieve that goal.
The effect of achieving goals like these is to help us to feel more content.
