Suggested Answer:

The lecture is about new developments that help in communicating with the minds of brain-damaged patients and, hence, in diagnosing their problems and prescribing a suitable treatment. This has been made possible by new techniques of brain imaging, which enable the physicians to communicate with the patient’s mind without the patient having to say or do anything. Earlier such patients were considered beyond treatment and their recovery was considered a miracle.

Suggested Answer:

The lecture is about transition of life from water to land, during which fish and water animals having fins gradually evolved into tetrapods having limbs, fingers and toes. Such land-moving animals also had to contend with other challenges like gravity and a different way of breathing, though it also presented them with new opportunities. Yet scientists can only speculate on how and when this transition actually occurred.

Suggested Answer:

The lecture is about transformation of higher education in Britain. University education is increasingly being linked with careerism, so much so that the teaching of non-career subjects is being questioned. With rapid social transformation taking higher education from classes to meritorious masses, and with the government seeking to accelerate access to university education, resources are becoming a serious constraint and universities are finding it hard to cope with the rush.
