Of all the family members,grandparents are probably the least valued.They are just the people who have always been around.They make a fuss over the children in the family,show off to their friends the achievements of this child or that child,and show countless pictures of new babies.

When you are small,it’s fun to stay with your grandparents because they always let you do things you can’t do at home,and,of course,they buy you things.They are always able to babysit because they don’t go out much and actually prefer to see their grandchildren.They are usually good for a small loan now and then doesn’t need to be paid back because they turn it into a gift.You respectfully listen to their advice but don’t thank them politely for what they do for you,and then don’t call or visit them until you need something else.And,of course,you never tell them how dear they are to you because they know how you feel about them anyway.Then all of a sudden,they are no longer there to do the things that only grandparents can do,and you find yourself wishing that you had told them what they meant to you as people and not just as grandparents.

Cars are an important part of life in th United States.Without a car, most people feel that they are poor.An even if a person is poor he doesn’t feel really poor when he has a car. Henry Ford was the man who first started making cars in large numbers.He probably didn’t know how much the
car was going to affect American culture.The car made the Unite States a nation on wheels.And it helped make the United States what it is today.
There are three main reasons the car became so popular in the United States.First of all,the country is a huge one and Americans like to move around in it.The car provides the most comfortable and cheapest form of transportation.With a car people can go any place without spending a lot of money.
The second reason cars are popular is the fact that the United States never really developed an efficient and inexpensive form of public transportation.Long-distance have never been as common in the United States as they are in other parts of the world.Nowadays,there is a good system of air-service provided by planes.But it is too expensive to be used frequently.
The third reason is the most important one,though.The American spirit of independence is what really made cars popular.Americans don’t like to wait for a bus or a train or even a plane.They don’t like to have to follow an exact schedule.A car gives them the freedom to schedule their own time.And this is the freedom that Americans want most to have.
The gas shortage has caused a big problem for Americans.But the answer will not be a bigger system of public transportation.The real solution will have to be a new kind of car,one that does not use so much gas.

There is a difference between science and technology.Science is a method of answering theoretical questions;technology is a method of solving practical problem.Science has to do with the facts and relationships between observable phenomena in nature and with establishing theories that serve to organize these facts and relationships;technology has to do with tools,techniques,and procedures for implementing the finding of science. Another distinction between science and technology has to do with the progress in each.Progress in science excludes the human factor.Scientists,who seek to comprehend the universe and know the truth with the highest degree of accuracy and certainty,cannot pay attention to their own or other people’s likes or dislikes or to popular ideas about the fitness of things.What scientists discover may shock or anger people-as did Darwin’s theory of evolution.But even an unpleasant truth is more than likely to be useful;besides,we have the choice of refusing to believe it!But it’s hardly so with technology and we do not have the choice of refusing to hear the sonic boom produced by a supersonic aircraft flying overhead;we do not have the choice of refusing to breathe polluted air;and
we do not have the choice of living in a non-atomic age.Unlike science progress,technology must be measured in terms of the human factor.The legitimate purpose of technology is to serve people in general,not merely some people;and future generantions,not merely those who presently wish to gain advantage for themselves.Technology must be humanistic if it is to lead to a better world.
36.Which of the following statements about science is NOT true?
A.Scinece provides answers to theoretical questions.
