It is supported by the sentence above.

Hai,
I have a good passage about zipping of human barin. I have worked out an exercise. FILL IN THE GAPS IN THE FOLLOWING PASSAGE.
Perseverance in the face of adversity is an admirable character trait – now it turns out you can conjure it up with a quick zap to a tiny spot in the brain. The discovery in two people with epilepsy was accidental but it is the first to show that simple brain stimulation can create rich, complex alterations of consciousness.
Josef Parvizi, a neurologist at Stanford University in California, and his colleagues had implanted electrodes in the brains of two people with epilepsy to help identify the source of their seizures. In the course of their work, they noticed that an odd thing happened when they stimulated a region in the anterior midcingulate cortex – a part of the limbic system involved in emotion, processing, learning and memory. Both patients reported feeling a sense of foreboding, coupled with a determination to overcome whatever challenge they were about to face.
During the stimulation, one patient reported feeling "worried that something bad is going to happen" but also noted that "it made me stronger". The other said he felt as if he were figuring out how to get through something.
He likened it to driving your car when one of the tires bursts. You're only halfway to your destination and you have no option but to keep going forward. "You're like… am I gonna get through this?" he said (see video). He also reported a sense of urgency: "It was more of a positive thing like… push harder, push harder, push harder to try and get through this."
One singular sensation
In contrast, when the researchers applied a sham stimulation – going through exactly the same procedure, but with the current set to zero – neither volunteer reported feeling any specific sensations. Stimulation of other nearby regions of the brain less than 5 millimetres away also failed to produce the feelings of either foreboding or perseverance.
The discovery may have implications for people with obsessive-compulsive disorder, which can be thought of as a disease of excessive perseverance. People with severe OCD are sometimes opt for surgery to the cingulate cortex, but not every person with the condition shows improvement. Surgeons might be able to improve their odds of success by identifying and targeting the exact part of the cingulate that produces feelings of perseverance, says Parvizi.
The study is also the first to show that simple brain stimulation can create rich, complex alterations of consciousness, says Patricia Churchland, a neurophilosopher at the University of California at San Diego. "I was just bowled over by the implications for how we can start nailing down the circuitry underlying consciousness," she says.
Already, the result is a powerful argument against the claims by some philosophers that consciousness must involve something more than just electrical activity in the brain. "If you can stimulate and get these complex effects, then stop the stimulation and the effects go away, it's hard to see how you could maintain with a straight face the notion that consciousness is not a function of the brain," Churchland says.
The discovery came into light surprisingly with the patients of-------. In their experiment, they used-----in the brain. During the experiment they noticed something extraordinary in the-------cortex of the human brain. When the brain was subjected to stimulate, there was a failure of producing the--- of perseverance. The discovery may help the patients of------. The research shows that an ordinary brain can create ample tough changes of---.

I think A is the best answer.
Key idea: first line of 1st paragraph.

I think C is an answer

C

C

C
There is much dispute as to the identify of its inventor. The following paragraphs are to explain this sentence.

This is a very hard one. I am torn between C and D. I try to read again and again, my strong possible answer is C. However, my guts tell me that the answer is D. I eliminate the former one because there is no strong support about who invented the cinematograph. In fact, it is just an assumption of some people that Leon Bouly was the first person who invented and patented the cinematograph. OHHHHHH GOOD LORD, this is really hard.
I am eager to wait for Simon's answer on this reading. Please explain Sir the reasons about your answer. The reason why my answer is D is that I base in the first sentence and one of the middle sentences in the paragraph which clearly defines cinematography.

D is the best answer

CORRECT ANSWER FROM SIMON:

C.

"D" is only mentioned in the first sentence. The main topic of the whole text is "C".

TO ZIAUL HUDA,
I fancy reading articles related to Brain or Psychology,so i enjoyed the passage you shared. You didn't number your questions, nonetheless you did a hard work. My answers are : 1.epilepsy. 2, electrodes 3, anterior midcingulate 4, feelings. 5, OCD / obsessive- compulsive disorder . 6,consciousness.

Exactly C :)

"C" is my answer. Thanks so much!

hi i think

B is the answer

bt u r correct simon thanks for your real answer

I think C is correct, but I wonder how can I know the key of this?

Dear sir, you know most of the students are making mistakes in the reading part,and that is with Yes, or NO type questions.The challenges we face mostly with the vocabularies put in the paragraphs.As i know most of the students find problem with the meaning of the words in the paragraphs, so if we don't understand the meaning of the words in a sentence and we won't be able to get the meaning of the sentence as a whole.Dear sir, if you can provide us those important vocabularies which are mostly being used in the reading part in the paragraphs.And i'm sure they may help us in in order not to make mistakes.
