O texto abaixo está dividido em 5 (cinco) partes. Leia-o e responda as questões sobre ele. Proto-Ferrari (Revista Time, 17 de Maio de 2004, pg 66) Parte I If you think Detroit takes an awfully long time to develop new models, consider the car on display at Florence s Museum of the History of Science: it needed five centuries to get from plan to prototype. Parte II The car takes a no-frills approach it has no onboard computers, seatback TVs or even airbags. What it does have is the most impressive pedigree in automotive history: it was designed in 1478 by Leonardo da Vinci. Parte III The original Renaissance man produced what are believed to be the first workable automotive drawings more than 400 years before Karl Benz came along. (He also drew plans for a helicopter, a submarine and a tank.) Da Vinci s car, sketched in great detail in his manuscript Codice Atlantico, is propelled by springs, like a mechanical toy. Probably designed as a spectacular special effect for some court festivities, it has a remote-control brake and can be preset to steer either right or left. Parte IV Although experts have tried to build a working model from Da Vinci s blueprints for nearly a century, none of their cars ever functioned before. The documentation in the drawings is incomplete, explains the museum s director, Paolo Galluzzi, and until a shift in interpretation a few years ago, the car was an enigma. At that time Carlo Pedretti, director of the Armand Hammer Center for Leonardo Studies in Los Angeles, deduced that the real motor apparatus was a pair of spiral springs contained in drums beneath the wagon, and not as scholars had long believed the leaf springs visible in the upper section of the drawing. Parte V The model displayed in Florence was built on Pedretti s interpretation; in a test drive, it traveled 40 m. The car will remain in Florence until June 5, then move to Vinci, the artist s hometown, before touring Tuscany. 1 a QUESTÃO Valor: 1,6 (0,2 cada item) Decida em qual das partes do texto Proto-Ferrari cada informação listada pode ser encontrada e assinale com o algarismo (I, II, III, IV ou V) correspondente no CADERNO DE SOLUÇÕES the person who conceived the model the identification of the real mechanisms idealized by the inventor other inventions of the father of the car the place where you might see the car in August the probable reason the car was designed for the one who could decode the mystery of how the car could work properly the place known for innovations in the car industry the reason why it was so difficult to built the car. 2 a QUESTÃO Valor: 1,5 (0,3 cada item) Complete cada frase abaixo com 1 (uma) palavra retirada da parte indicada do texto Proto-Ferrari, escrevendo-a no CADERNO DE SOLUÇÕES Saving the little boy from the flames was really a of courage.

Being Brave for This New World (Revista Discover, Janeiro-2003, pg 29) A cloned human being, a near-replica of another person, may be gestating in a womb somewhere or may even have been born. Panos Zavos, a reproductive specialist from Kentucky, himself is openly trying to produce a human clone, and he is not alone. In July, for example, a group called Clonaid said it had a surrogate mother carrying a clone in South Korea. An Italian physician made a similar claim. These practitioners are willing to work in the public glare. Surely other researchers are trying in secret, and still others are cloning and sustaining human embryos without bringing them to term. The world doesn t want a human clone, yet the world is going to have one, whether it is outlawed or sanctioned, hidden or announced, damaged or healthy. This genie is out of the bottle, said Zavos to Congress, and it keeps getting bigger by the hour. RASCUNHO
