II.- READING TEXT: Did you know that apart from Roger Ebert and Stanley Kubrick there was another man who predicted the future through stories? That man was the French writer Jules Verne. His famous stories like Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea and From the Earth to the Moon showed different devices that exist today. In Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea, Verne described an electric submarine. In his famous science fiction classic novel From the Earth to the Moon, the visionary writer described three devices used by NASA: one of them is the solar sail which is a method of spacecraft propulsion. Another device imagined by Verne is the lunar module, or rocket, that takes astronauts to the moon. Finally, he predicted what we call now a splashdown, which is a method of landing a spacecraft in the ocean by parachute. His legacy has had a big influence on literature and science. The most curious thing is that Jules Verne lived between 1828 and 1905, and he was able to foresee the future through his unique creations. 3.- ANSWER: (2 points) The text is: a.- ______ an interview b.- ______ an article c.- ______ a leaflet d.- ______ an advertisement The purpose of this article is: a.- ______ to give information. b.- ______ to classify information. c.- ______ to express opinión. d.- ______ to give instructions. 4.- READ AGAIN.
