Today we take electricity for granted and perhaps we do not realize just how useful this discovery has been. Steam was the first invention that replaced wind power. It was used to drive engines and was passed through pipes and radiators to warm rooms. Petrol mixed with air was the next invention that provided power. Exploded in a cylinder, it drove a motor engine. Beyond these simple and direct uses, those forms have not much adaptability.
On the other hand, we make use of electricity in thousands of ways. From the powerful voltages that drive our electric trains to the tiny current needed to work a simple calculator, and from the huge electric magnet in steel works that can lift 10 tons to the tiny electric magnet in a doorbell, all are powered by electricity. An electric current can be made with equal ease to heat a huge mass of molten metal in a furnace, or to boil a jug for a cup of coffee.
Other than atomic energy, which has not as yet been harnessed to the full, electricity is the greatest power in the world. It is flexible, and so adaptable for any task for which it is wanted. It travels so easily and with incredible speed along wires and conductors that it can be supplied instantly over vast distances.
To generate electricity, huge turbines or generators must be turned. In Australia they use coal or water to drive this machinery. When dams are built, falling water is used to drive the turbines without polluting the atmosphere with smoke from coal.
Atomic power is used in several countries but there is always the fear of an accident. A tragedy once occurred at Chernobyl, in Ukraine, at an atomic power plant used to make electricity. The reactor leaked, which caused many deaths through radiation.
Now scientists are examining new ways of creating electricity without harmful effects to the environment. They may harness the tides as they flow in and out of bays. Most importantly, they hope to trap sunlight more efficiently. We do not use solar heaters for swimming pools but as yet improvement in the capacity of the solar cells to create more current is necessary. When this happens, electric cars will be viable and the world will rid itself of the toxic gases given off by trucks and cars that burn fossil fuels.
41. The word “adaptability” in the first paragraph is closest in meaning to ______.
 A. change	B. influence	C. modification	D. function
42. The author mentions the sources of energy such as wind, steam, petrol in the first paragraph to ______.
 A. suggest that electricity should be adapted more safely
 B. emphasize the usefulness of electricity
 C. imply that electricity is not the only source of energy
 D. recommend alternative sources of energy
43. The word “harnessed” in the second paragraph is closest in meaning to ______.
 A. exploited	B. supplied	C. consumed	D. preserved 
 44. Because of its flexibility, _______.
 A. electricity can be supplied in different ways.	
 B. electricity can travel easily but not quickly.
 C. electricity can be used for various purposes.	
 D. electricity can be generated easily but quite costly.
 45. What do we call machines that make electricity?
 A. voltages	B. electric magnets
 C. generators or turbines	D. pipes and radiators
46. What does the author mean by saying “Other than atomic energy, which has not as yet been harnessed to the full, electricity is the greatest power in the world.”?
 A. Other sources of energy are greater than electricity and atomic energy.
 B. The power of electricity has not been realized as fully as that of atomic energy
 C. The power of electricity has been realized more fully than that of atomic energy
 D. But for the other types of energy, electricity would be the greatest power.
47. The word “they” in bold in the last paragraph refers to ______.
 A. harmful effects	 B. the tides	C. scientists	D. new ways
48. Electric magnets are used in steel works to ______.
 A. lift heavy weights up to ten tons	B. test the steel for strength
 C. heat the molten steel	D. boil a jug of water
49. The advantage of harnessing the power of the tides and sunlight to generate electricity is that they ______.
 A. do not pollute the environment	B. are more reliable
 C. are more adaptable	D. do not require attention
50. The passage mainly discusses_______.
 A. the crucial roles of electricity throughout the history
 B. the changes of the world since the invention of electricity
 C. the properties of electricity and ways to produce it
 D. the advantages and potential risks of electricity

	THE BEATLES
In the 1960s, The Beatles were probably the most famous pop group in the whole world.
