Direction: The following passage is followed by questions based on its contents. After reading the passage, choose the best answers to each question.

It is no easy life that lies before a scientific investigator. He has to steel his body, and nerves, to the utmost. There is to be for him no life of ease. It is to be one of the unending struggles. Even after all this, there is no assurance whatever of success to reward him for his ceaseless toil. He has to cat his life as an offering, regarding gain or loss, success or failure, as one. This will perhaps be better realized when I recount the history of .the conquest of the air. I had the unusual opportunity of ‘coming in close contact with the work of a man to whom this great achievement is ultimately due. Many lives had previously been sacrificed in various ineffective attempts before the investigation of the supporting power of moving surfaces was scientifically taken up by Langley in America. After many years of patient experimentation, new data were obtained, which were contrary to all previously accepted theories of aerodynamics. Great interest was aroused and the American nation keenly watched for the occasion when a large machine was to male its flight before the public. In this public demonstration, a small screw was left loose by the carelessness of a workman with the result that the machine, instead of rising, was precipitated into the: river. A chorus of derision arose which was magnified by the Press, and Langley died of a broken heart. This was often been the fate of great inventors and discoverers. But the lure that draws heroic souls is not the success which can easily be achieved, but defeat and tribulation in the pursuit of the unattainable.
