1. 밑줄 친 부분 중 어법상 옳지 않은 것은?

One conviction that many have about the future is that it is full of uncertainties.

They see this in the wars, the hunger, and the disease outbreaks in news reports. They make big plans for tomorrow while feeling uneasy about what is to come.

Affecting only about one in 4 million children worldwide, progeria is a condition that produces the appearance of premature aging and dramatically reduces life expectancy to about 13 years. Although babies with progeria appear normal at birth, they begin to show signs of the disease before the end of their first year. They grow and gain weight at a much slower rate than others their age, their skin begins to look thin and wrinkled, and their features appear pinched and small in proportion to the size of their heads, which fail to grow hair. They develop normal intelligence as they mature, but the symptoms of the condition, like stiff joints and cardiovascular disease, prevent them from experiencing a normal childhood. There is currently no cure or any treatment for progeria, but scientists have discovered that this terrible disorder is caused by the mutation of a gene called LMNA. Normally, LMNA produces a protein that stabilizes the nuclei found in cells. However, in children with progeria, the protein produces the opposite effect, resulting in the rapid deterioration of the cardiovascular, muscular, and skeletal systems.

 

Progeria is a relatively rare childhood disease caused by a genetic mutation.

A child suffering from progeria will be affected physically but not mentally.

Symptoms of progeria are not immediately recognizable in newborns.

Lack of the LMNA gene can lead to the gradual breakdown of bodily systems.
