NB / Answer three questions. Question two and four are compulsory. Five marks for each question.

Q1) In dealing with quotes, when should you quote? and when shouldn't you quote? Q2) Write a tentative sentence outline of your research paper. Q3) How can you achieve unity and coherence in you research paper? Q4) Make a brief summary card using the entire passage. You don't need to capture every idea _ just what you consider important.
Here we have a poetic method which deliberately and indeed ostentatiously displays the poet’s control of metaphor; indeed, we notice that the poet’s self-differentiation from Sporus is partly based on this factor. The wit of Pope’s metaphors is precisely an enactment of his assumed literary, moral and characterological superiority over the unfortunate Sporus. And we notice too that in order to achieve this effect Pope does not reside within a single structure of equivalence. He compares Sporus first to a ‘thing of silk’ (tremulous and inconstant, but

also anticipating through the figure of the silk-worm the later insect analogies); then to the ‘curd of Ass’s milk’, with its connotations of something that has curdled – the metaphor ‘white’ here has been wrenched from its more usual connotations of purity and made instead to represent something pallid and sickly; then to a ‘butterfly’, something which has no weight, no solidity, something which we might say is, indeed, paradoxically unworthy of the very weight of metaphor which Pope is bringing to bear upon his subject.

Science Translation Fourth Year Feb.2nd ,2012

A) Molecular biology is the study of biology at a molecular level. This field overlaps with other areas of biology, particularly with genetics(‫ )علثثم الوراثثثة‬and biochemistry. Molecular biology chiefly concerns itself with understanding the interactions between the various systems of a cell, including the interrelationship of DNA, RNA, and protein synthesis ‫التركيب‬ and learning how these interactions are regulated. Cell biology studies the structural and physiological properties of cells, including their behaviors, interactions, and environment. This is done on both the microscopic ‫مجهرية‬and molecular levels, for single-celled organisms such as bacteria as well as the specialized cells in multicellular ‫ متعددة الخلية‬organisms such as humans. Understanding the structure and function of cells is fundamental to all of the biological sciences. The similarities and differences between cell types are particularly relevant to molecular biology. Genetics is the science of genes, heredity ‫ ,الوراثثثة‬and the variation of organisms. Genes encode the information necessary for synthesizing proteins, which in turn play a large role in influencing (though, in many instances, not completely determining) the final phenotype ‫ شثثكل‬of the organism. In modern research, genetics provides important tools in the investigation of the function of a particular gene, or the analysis of genetic interactions. Within organisms, genetic information is carried in chromosomes, where it is represented in the chemical structure of particular DNA molecules.

B) Theorists seek to develop mathematical models that both agree with existing experiments
and successfully predict future results, while experimentalists ‫ التجريبيين‬devise and perform experiments to test theoretical predictions and explore new phenomena. Although theory and experiment are developed separately, they are strongly dependent upon each other. Progress in physics frequently comes about when experimentalists make a discovery that existing theories cannot explain, or when new theories generate experimentally testable predictions, which inspire new experiments. Theoretical physics has historically taken inspiration from philosophy. Beyond the known universe, the field of theoretical physics also deals with hypothetical issues, such as parallel universes, a multiverse ‫ , عوالم متعددة‬and higher dimensions. Theorists invoke these ideas in hopes of solving particular problems with existing theories. They then explore the consequences of these ideas and work toward making testable predictions. Experimental physics informs, and is informed by, engineering and technology. Experimental physicists involved in basic research design and perform experiments with equipment such as particle accelerators ‫مسثثرعات‬and lasers, whereas those involved in applied research often work in industry, developing technologies such as magnetic resonance ‫ رنيثثن‬imaging (MRI) and transistors. Feynman has noted that experimentalists may seek areas which are not well explored by theorists.
