There was a pilot and four people in a small plane. Suddenly there was something wrong with the machine while it was flying in the air. The smoke was everywhere in the plane. The pilot told the people there were only four parachutes (降落伞). They all become worried and started to make excuses.
“I must go and mend the machine,” said the pilot, taking one of the parachutes. There was nothing he could do so he jumped out.
The first person stood up. “I’m a doctor,” he said, “ I help people live longer and I save lives.” He also took a parachute and jumped out.
The next person said, “I must have a parachute. I’m a very clever person. I have to attend an important sports match. I know I’ll win the game because I’ll be the cleverest person there.” He picked up a pack and jumped out.
Two men were left — an old business and a young mountain climber. By this time the plane was going down fast. The businessman said, “Young man, I’m old but you are still young. You take the last parachute.” The young mountain climber smiled. “Don’t worry,” he said, “we can both jump to safety because there are still two parachutes. Just now the clever person jumped out with my back pack.”

Some psychologists maintain that mental acts such as thinking are not performed in the brain alone, but that one’s muscles also participate. It may be said that we think with muscles in somewhat the same way that we listen to music with our bodies.
You surely are not surprised to be told that you usually listen to music not only with your ears but also with your whole body. Few people can listen to music that is more or less familiar without moving their body or, more specifically, some part of their body. Often when one listens to a symphonic concert on the radio, he is tempted to direct the orchestra even though he knows there is a competent conductor on the job.
Strange as this behavior may be, there is a very good reason for it. One cannot derive all the possible enjoyment form music unless he participates, so to speak, in its performance. The listener “feels” himself into the music with more or less pronounced motions of his body.
The muscles of the body actually participate in the mental process of thinking in the same way, but this participation is less obvious because it is less pronounced.
Some psychologists maintain that thinking is ________.[2分]
more of a physical process than a mental action
a process that involves our entire bodies
a process that involves the muscles as well as the brain
The process of thinking and that of listening are similar in that ________.[2分]
muscles participate in both processes
both processes are performed by the entire body
we derive equal enjoyment from them
Few people are able to listen to familiar music without ________.[2分]
moving some part of their body
stopping what they are doing
directing the orchestra playing it
wishing that they could conduct music properly
Body movements are necessary in order for the listener to ________.[2分]
completely understand the music
According to the selection, muscle participation in the process of thinking is ________.[2分]
Under proper conditions, sound waves will be reflected from a hillside or other such obstruction. Sound travels at the rate of about one fifth of a mile per second. If the hill is eleven hundred feet away, it takes two seconds for the sound to travel to the hill and back. Thus, buy timing the interval between a sound and its reflection (the echo), you can estimate the distance to an obstruction. During World War II the British used a practical application of this principle to detect German planes on their way to bomb London long the enemy was near the target. They used radio waves instead of sound waves, since radio waves can penetrate fog and clouds. The outnumbered Royal Air Force (RAF) always seemed to the puzzled Germans to be lying in wait at the right time and never to be surprised. It was radio echoes more than anything else that won the Battle of Britain.
Since the radio waves were used to tell the direction in which to send the RAF planes and the distance to send them (their range of flight, in other words), the device was called radio directing and ranging, and from the initials the word radar was coined.
Sound waves reflected from a hill can be used to estimate the ________.[2分]
Practical application of this principle resulted in ________.[2分]
new electronic instruments for planes
a radio directing and ranging device
new radio sets for RAF bombers
an electronic detecting device
The British used radio waves because they ________.[2分]
were more exact than sound waves
could penetrate fog and clouds
were easier to use than sound waves
Which of the following is NOT stated but implied in the passage?[2分]
Light waves could be used in a device similar to radar.
Radar was a practical application of a well-known principle
Radar greatly increased the effectiveness of RAF.
Sound waves are reflected from a hillside under all conditions.
The author of this selection probably intended to explain ________.[2分]
why the British used radio waves in their device
how the word “radar” came into being
how radar helped the British win the Battle of Britain
