Cambridge Reading Part 3 - forming words 


For the following questions, use the word next to the blank to form a word that fits in the gap.

Quantum Computing


Quantum Computing (1) ________________ (USE) a different method of calculating than (2) ______________________ (TRADITION) computing, which is called binary computing.

In binary computing there are two possible states: on or off, 1 or 0. But in quantum computing, a (3) ______________(VARY) of different states are possible; that is, all of the possibilities between 0 and 1.

Instead of a bit, in quantum computing the units are (4) __________________ (CALL) qubits. A single qubit can exist in a large number of different states, which allows it to calculate much (5) ___________________ (FAST) than a binary operation. 

The (6) ________________________ (CALCULATE) performed by a quantum computer can resolve (7) ____________________ (EXTREME) difficult problems, such as the (8) _______________________ (LOCATE) of individual air molecules passing over the wing of an airplane.

Quantum Computing uses a different method of calculating than traditional computing, which is called binary computing.

In binary computing there are two possible states: on or off, 1 or 0. But in quantum computing, a variety of different states are possible; that is, all of the possibilities between 0 and 1.

Instead of a bit, in quantum computing the units are called qubits. A single qubit can exist in a large number of different states, which allows it to calculate much faster than a binary operation. 

The calculations performed by a quantum computer can resolve extremely difficult problems, such as the location of individual air molecules passing over the wing of an airplane.
