      The Man Booker Prize for Fiction is awarded annually for full-length novels of writers from the Commonwealth or the Republic of Ireland with a view to representing the very best in contemporary fiction. The prestigious prize was originally called the Booker-McConnell Prize, the name of the sponsor company; however, it was better-known as the “Booker Prize”. In 2002, the name was modified when Man Group became the sponsor and they keep the word "Booker”.

     Books from publishers can be submitted for consideration for the prize. In addition, the judges can sometimes send invitations to authors if they think the books should be included. Initially, the Advisory Committee give advice if there are any changes to the rules for the prize. Then, the people who will judge the books will be selected. There is an annual change in the judging panel and usually an individual is only a judge once.

     The organizers also made to ensure that the judging panel is balanced in terms of gender and professions. Normally a writer, a critic, an editor and an academic are chosen along with a celebrity from wider society. Nevertheless, when the panel of judges has been confirmed, they are left to make their own decisions without any further involvement or interference from the prize sponsor.

    The Booker Prize is highly appreciated because it rewards the finest in fiction, features great books to readers and transforms authors' careers. The influence of the prize is so huge that the winter w a certainly see the sales increase considerably, along with the £50.000 that comes with the prize.

Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or D to indicate the correct answer to each of the questions.

    Nature has always provided a stimulus for inventive minds. Early flying machines clearly were an attempt to emulate the freedom of birds. Architects and engineers have often consciously modeled buildings on forms found in nature. A more recent example of the inspiration given by nature is the invention of Velcro. The inventor of this now common fastening device noticed that small burrs attached to his dog's coat grasped the hairs by means of tiny hooks. This led him to invent a synthetic fabric whose surfaces mimic the clasping properties of this natural seedpod. Animals and plants have evolved solutions to the kinds of problems that often interest engineers and designers. Much current research in material science is concerned with actively examining the natural world, especially at the molecular level, for inspiration to develop materials with novel properties. This relatively new field of study is sometimes known as biomimetics, since it consciously attempts to mimic nature.

    Researchers have investigated several interesting areas. For example, they have studied how the molecular structure of antler bone contributes to its amazing toughness, how the skin structure of a worn contributes to its ability to crawl, how the sea cucumber softens its skeleton and changes shape so that it can squeeze through tiny gaps in rocks, or what gives wood its high resistance to impact. These investigations have led to several breakthroughs in the development of composite materials with remarkable properties.

    Predictions for future inventions that may be developed front these lines of research include so-called structures that design and repair themselves in a similar way to a variety of processes in the natural world. For example, engineers have envisaged bridges that would detect areas heavily stressed by vehicle movement or wind. The bridge structure would then automatically add or move material to the weak areas until the stress is reduced. The same principle might be used to repair damaged buildings. Other new materials that have been imagined are substances that would copy photosynthesis in green plants in order to create new energy sources. The potential impact of biomimetic research is so great that the twenty-first century may come to be known as the “Age of Materials.”
