Soal no.151 s.d 155 mengacu kepada bacaan berikut.

As with so much of this new disease, scientist still dont know much why
SARS seems to spread at varying rates in different areas, but this might be the result
of the influence of so - called superspreaders, infected individuals who appear to be
much more contagious than the average SARS patient. Almost 100 SARS cases in
Singapura can be tracted to a 26 - year - old flight attendant who imported the
disease from Hong Kong. In that city, the two major outbreaks - in the Prince of
Wales Hospital and the amoy Gardens housing estate - were almost certainly
triggered by a pair of superspreaders. We dont know SARS spread, says Dr. Balaji
sadasvian, Minister of State at Singapores Ministry of Helath, but we have drawn
the conclusion that some people dont seem to spread it to many people while others
spread it to a lot. Worried health officials know that each of Asias supercities is a
single superspreader away from another outbreak.
That means identifying potential superspreaders is vital to halting SARS -
except that scientist dont know what makes a superspreader super. Thats the $
64.000 question, says Dr. Osman David Mansoor. A WHO scientist. Its probably a
spectrum of biological variation. That means genetic aberrations within patients -
which could help explain why some SARS sufferes barely show symptoms while
others become mortally ill-or within the viruses themselves. Even though doctors are
now almost certain that the novel coronavirus first discovered by the University of
Hong Kong (HKU) is the primary cause of SARS, the total umber of isolated
coronaviruses in patients is quite still low. So its difficult to compare in terms of
genomic arrangement wheter those with a high transmissibility actually have some
changes in genetic material, says Dr. K.Y.Yuen, a microbiologist at HKU.

Soal no. 156 s.d 160 mengacu pada bacaan berikut.

Through much of the early history of science it was assumed that all planets
are inhabited. For example in the eighteenth century, johann Elert Bode of Germany
drew attention to the systematic spacing of the planets - what is known as Bodes
low - and proposed that there are also systematic differences among the people
living in these various bodies. Bodes law says that spacing between the planets
orbits tends to double with each step outward from the sun.Thus the interval
between the orbits of the Earth and Mars, the next planet out from the sun, is roughly
twice that between Earth and Venus, whose orbit lies inside that of the Earth.
Likewise, that planets are composed of lighter material as one moves outward
from the sun, and Bode said this progression applied as well to the spirits of their
inhabitants. The philosopher Immanuel Kant elaborated on this idea. Because
Mercury is so near the sun and hence so hot, he said, its residents are in a primitive
moral state, whereas the inhabitants of Jupiter are in a superior state of
