Instructions: Read the following passage and answer the questions:
Recently technological advancement in manned and un-manned undersea vehicles, overcome some of the limitations of divers equipment. Without a. vehicle, divers often became sluggish and their mental concentration was limited. Because of undersea pressure that affected their mind, concentration among divers was difficult or impossible. But today, most oceanographers make observations by means of instruments that are lowered into the ocean or from samples taken from the water. Direct observation of the ocean floor is made not only by the divers, but also by deep diving submarines. Some of these submarines can dive to depths of more than several miles and cruise at depths of 15 thousand feet. Radio equipped buoys can be operated by remote control in order to transmit information back to land-based laboratories including data about water temperature, currents and weather. Some of mankind’s most serious problems, especially those concerning energy and food may be solved with the help of observations made possible by the undersea vehicles.
