Directions for the following ten items: Read the following two passages and answer the items that follow based on the passage only. Passage I NASA plans to crash a pair of small robotic science probes into the moon next week as part of a yearlong mission to learn what lies beneath the lunar surface, officials said on Thursday. The twin Gravity Recovery and Interior Laboratory (GRaIL) spacecraft will make suicidal plunges on Monday into a mountain near the moon's North Pole, a site selected to avoid the chance of hitting any of the Apollo or other lunar relics. The impacts, which are not expected to be visible from Earth, will take place about 20 seconds apart at 5.28pm EST (10.28pm GMT) on Monday. "They're going to be completely blown apart," Grail project manager David Lehman, from NASA's jet propulsion laboratory in Pasadena, California, told reporters on a conference call. The two probes, each about the size of a small washing machine, have been flying in close formation around the moon for nearly a year to map the lunar gravity. Scientists precisely measure the distance between the two, a figure that slightly changes as they fly over denser regions of the moon. The gravitational pull of the additional mass causes first the leading probe and then the following one to speed up, altering the gap between them. Gravity maps from the first part of the mission, collected between March and May 2012, when the spacecrafts were about 34 miles (55 km) above the lunar surface, revealed that the moon has a shallower and much more fractured crust than expected – the result of asteroid and comet impacts billions of years ago. Similar bombardments happened on all the solid bodies of the inner solar system, though the evidence on Earth has been erased by erosion, plate tectonics and other phenomena. "With Mars, there's a question about where the water that we think was on the surface went," said lead scientist

Maria Zuber at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. "These fractures provide a pathway deep inside the planet and it's very easy to envision now how a possible ocean on the surface could have found its way deep into the crust." Scientists also discovered lava-filled subterranean cracks inside the moon, evidence that the body expanded early in its history. In addition to planetary science, the gravity maps, along with detailed images, should help engineers pick landing sites for future robotic and human expeditions to the moon, Zuber said. The spacecraft will hit the surface at about 3,760mph (6,120kph). No pictures are expected because the region will be dark at the time of impact, but a sister spacecraft circling the moon, NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter, will attempt to survey the crash site. (1) The following is/are correct according to the passage: 1. The two probes that have been flying around the moon for over a year will make plunges near the moon’s North Pole 2. Gravity maps revealed that the moon has a shallower and much more fractured crust than expected 3. NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter is circling the moon and will attempt to survey the crash site of GRaIL (a) 1 and 2 (b) 2 and 3 (c) 1 and 3 (d) All of the above (2) "They're going to be completely blown apart," is from the first paragraph of the passage.
