Read each of the following passages and answer the items that follow. Your answers to these items should be based on the passages only.
It is undesirable that some useful analogies can be drawn between relation systems of computer mechanism and relational systems of brain mechanism. The comparison does not depend upon any close resemblance between the actual mechanical links which occur in brains and computers; it depends on what the machines do. Furthermore, brains and computers can both be originalised so as to solve problems. The mode of communication is very similar in both cases, so much so that computers can now be designed to generate artificial human speech and even, by accident, to produce sequences of words which human beings recognise as poetry. The implication is not that machines are gradually human forms, but that there is no sharp break of continuity between what is human and what is mechanical.
The author states that computers are capable of producing sequence of words which can be recognised as poetry. He implies that
A This cannot really be given the status of true poetry
B The concept of true poetry has undergone a thorough change in modern times
C The similarity between true poetry and computer poetry is striking
D Programmed computers are a challenge to the human brain
